You're a Magical Girl, and quite frankly, a hair's breadth from pulling out your gun and start shooting people. In their fat, stupid, perfectly-made up faces. Idol faces.Fuck idols. Fuuuuck all of them.Especially this Kirishima Ruri in particular.
>>25618919Ever since you got back home and started being Warmaster, you've been having very bad days back-to-back.There was that thing with Kharn's hat. Then, that thing with Iori, which you probably could have handled better but you tried your best with.You're not even going to think about the box you got. Fucking boxes, you hate them now, and you'd always thought about getting gifts as something positive.Now...well, Kirishima Ruri or whoever the fuck this idol thinks she is, it looks like she's doing her best to drive you up the goddamn wall, here. That, or get you to Witch out early, you don't know what.For...for fuck's sake, she's having sex with Iori in her suite. IN THE PENTHOUSE SUITE, where the 765 Productions idol almost got raped in months ago.Either the world has caught up with you and had decided to start fucking with you once again, or it's simply a portent to tell you that it's all downhill from here.You have the sneaking suspicion that it's the latter.Because nothing else would apparently get the world's cock hard enough other than seeing you suffer for something you've done that you have absolutely no memory of.[1/2]
>>25618922"Miss...Miss Murderface?" The sweaty, shivering little lump of idol gopher that got shat on with the codename 'Deepthroat' quakes beside you, her voice shakier than your chances of keeping yourself together. "Is....is everything okay? You're...you're kind of growling, and...your...your eyes are..."...Fuck this. You've had enough. Right now, you've had enough, and you're not in the mood to tolerate any more crap. The ticket thing? Fine, that was amusing, hilarious, funny ha-ha. This? No, this shit will not fly with you.You're Warmaster now, and you didn't allow a psychotic monster with blades for hands and swords for feet to fuck with your Soul Gem to get jerked around like this.Kick the door open.Break the door down.Other.

>>25618948Boot the door down
>>25618948[X]Other.Kicking the door open is a terrible way to clear a room, leaves you fully exposed to return fire from anyone waiting in the room. If the door is unlocked or we have some sort of key stand to the side of the door, open it, and slice the pie as we enter. If the door is locked knock, stand off to the side in as hidden a position as possible prepared to assault whoever opens it, just in case.If we break the door we'll have to move locations for the principal and that's annoying, or fix the door, which is even more annoying.
>>25618948[x]OtherTake a deep breath, calm down, don't disappoint Mami, an knock on the door with almost enough power to break it. Almost. Because its not about what we want to do, but giving Iori a chance to look presentable.

>>25618995No, that's a terrible idea. We keep Pinky out of our life whenever possible, it doesn't help to put her in it.

>>25618948Stay calm. She went through a lot of work to get a rise out of us and fuck with our head. Don't give her what she wants. It's probably a recording of some kind, we'll evaluate the situation fully once we're inside.For now knock on the fucking door, stick a cigarette in our mouth, light it, and blow smoke into Ruri's face the moment we see her.

>>25619061And it's still a stupid idea to bring Pinky into the area after she demonstrated how jealous she is of Iori and told us to stay away from her.
>>25618948[X] OtherHave our guide open the door for us. Getting us past security, all the security, is why she's here in the first place.[X] Let Iori have her rebound fling.
>>25619092How about no.
Thinking about it. Spaghetti-chan hasn't reacted to Iori orgasm noises. Meaning that. 1. The noises are fake.2. She didn't hear them. 3. Ruri does his a lot. I wonder if she should go full shadowruns and assume that Spaghetti-chan has orders to knock us out and tie us up when we enter the room. So we all have an NTR party!
>>25618948Smoke cigarette, calmly enter room, knock if necessary, raise an eyebrow at the recording of Iori, possibly shoot the music player, TV, or computer.
>>25619092Shut the fuck up you stupid cunt. We have a fucking job, and this is part of that job. You may as well have us retired for that kind of idiocy.
>>25619092No. We need to figure out who she's really working for first (yes, I'm assuming things, whatever). After that...
>>25619100This is more or less why I suggested we have Spaghetti-chan open the door. Besides, I'm sure Ruri is just schlicking to a video. Possibly one she had commissioned awhile ago.
>>25619100It's not the most effective NTR really. I mean, we're cut all romantic ties with her already, so it's not even NTR at all. I know I don't really mind beyond the fact that it seems somewhat OOC for Iori, which makes me suspicious that either one of us is being fucked with.
>>25618948I think we are well beyond taking a deep breath and calming down. We`ve had some mean fucking days behind us, with dealing with the box, dealing with Pinky, dealing with Sayaka which is especially aggravating and now we have to deal with another Idol who deliberatly tries to piss us off at every step. And this is why, taking a deep breath and calimg down is not even a fucking option.[x] Kick down door[x] Murderface-Glare[x] "I’m mean nasty and tired. I eat constintino wire and piss napalm, and I can put a round through a flea's ass at 200 meters. So you go and hump somebody else’s leg, mutt face, before I push yours in."Time for a classic.
>>25619118> OOC for Iori, which makes me suspicious that either one of us is being fucked with.The only way it would make sense to be IC for Iori would be if she was being really petty about it and used the knowledge that we would be protecting Ruri to attempt to get back at Chiaki for breaking things up, and thats a real stretch, Iori does not seem like the kind to do that to me
I say we bust down the door. Why? Because even if it was just a ruse, we fucking show her we do NOT play along nice. Fuck her. Fuck her and everything she stands for.
>>25618948>[X] Don't do anything rash, please.Seriously, let's not fly off our handle here.We do not want to lose our shit just because of this, do we?
>>25619128Well, the [x] Other option exists for a reason.Massive force of will, since most quest goers will just choose the available options.Put it this way, you wanna go on the railroad? Or go Choo Choo and jump the rails?
>>25619128As if that'll help the situation any. That'll be about as effective as Midori's "get fucked" was against Ribbon-Homura.
>Ruri knew we were coming (heh)>Is likely looking for a way to get back at us for ruining her SUDDENLY PAPARAZZI surpriseWhatever we do/see we must not show any emotion beyond 'give me a reason why I should put up with your shit or say goodbye to your kneecaps' glare.

>>25619156>>25619152boy it's almost like they want to role play a character that makes bad decisions or something
>>25619152>>25619156WHAAAAAT! PEOPLE WANT TO REACT IN CHARACTER TO THIS BULLSHIT!? NO WAY, WE CANT HAVE THAT! NEEDS MORE META!
>>25619177Better self control.We were suppose to be put back together better.
>>25619195Theres a precedent set in the previous time Chiaki choose NOT to shoot the door down when the champagne was popped.And with all the good choices made in establishing rapport, lines of communication and plans with the Rank Leaders, a case can be made for Chiaki having better control of her actions. Heck she even woke up and arrived in the office on time.
>>25619198>Better self control>We were suppose to be put back together better.What do these two have to do with each other? Murderface didn`t have a problem with self-control, mind you, she wasn`t a psychopath, she was just numb all over or at least pretended to be numb to the shit that happaned all around her. Lokk at wha Decu write, its perfectly fine to drop the bomb since shit has been pillung up for some days now and this bitch is deliberatly trying to piss us off.
>>25619177 Chiaki has been trying to not make mistakes or be such a screwup after having herself repaired, reconsidering decisions especially when her emotions are in question. Why should we go Full Kharn, as you seem to want to do.
>>25619219>Theres a precedent set in the previous time Chiaki choose NOT to shoot the door down when the champagne was popped.How exactly is this a similiar situation? Just because there is a door?
>>25619229No she wasn't a psychopath but she did as she wished, when she wished.Shooting our boss in the first thread, not going in for briefings/debriefings, drinking on the job and popping painkillers non-stop. These are signs of a person without self-control.
>>25619240The bit about not acting on the first thing that pops into her mind?
>>25619233Except we warmaster now. And we fucking mad because some shitty idol that hired us not only does not treat us with the proper respect but also thinks that playing games with us is a good idea.Its not about fucking up, its about showing that you do not mess with a fucking warmaster. Not that Chiaki would give a fuck, but STANDARTS MUST BE MAINTAINED.
>>25619240How about the part of not doing the first thing that pops into her mind and that of the players, which in both case was to break down the door.
>>25619273... which was BOTH of the options Decu suggested, aside from [ ] Write in.
>>25619198>>25619229>>25619233I'm pretty sure if there's a time to act fucking pissed off, it's right about now. Everyone should have a snapping point, and it's not like we're about to go in with bullets flying. But we sure are going to give this bitch a fucking earful.
Oh boy, Time for Shadowruns!From the last thread:>...What's the 'box' she's talking about, though? Is it really that bad...?>"The...the box is..." Deepthroat swallows audibly at this, before shaking her head. Holding both hands over her ears. "N-no, don't make me say it out loud. It's horrible. A-and I'm not supposed to talk about it, a-anyway..."What's in the box? What's in the box?Deepthroat's head.Ruri's the prophet and she sent the box with Fake Mami's head in it. She hypnotized one of her fans with a golden weapon and took her head without any struggle. Ruri's songs are laced with golden-weapon magic hypnotism, so everyone who's listened to her first album has already been hypnotized, and they're just waiting for a trigger phrase before they do whatever they were hypnotized to do. Said trigger phrase will be in whatever song she's singing the concert. By protecting Ruri, we are letting her enslave everyone who's listening, including magical girls.How many shadowruns do we have regarding the concert now?
>>25619267But you basically will be admitting that: "Yes, they got to you, got under your skin and made you fucking mad."We're a Warmaster. We're suppose to be operating on a different level now. They can play their games. We will be mad but we will not show it. It will wash over Chiaki.And then when it comes to pay the piper, the Warmaster of the 10th will pay back this insult. With interest.
>>25619292We're at SHADOWRUN 0.
Standard anime cliche:>They are actually getting a massage.
>>25619298So you're saying their dominoes will fall like a house of cards, checkmate?
>>256192920 out of 10 shadowruns because that just silly.
>>25619319....AHAHAHA.Decu if this is true, I will hate/love you even harder.
>>25619319>they're actually masturbating side-by-sidë, both thinking of Chiaki.
>>25619267Oh sure, maintain standards by breaking them ourselves. [sarcasm]What a brilliant idea[/sarcasm]. Being a Warmaster doesn't mean we throw a tantrum every time we get disrespected. That's worse than Kharn.
>>25619323I'm sorry, what?
>>25619319>>25619326Yeaaaaah, that sounds more likely.
>>25619298I think it's better from a writer's perspective this way, since Chiaki sure did have self-control issues before all this, and now that she's actually having her self control tested hard, she's going to fuck up.I'd honestly say this way will at least make the story more interesting than someone that succeeds at everything they say they'd like to do with themselves.I'm pretty sure kicking down the door won anyway.
>>25619336I realised my effing mistake after I posted.My apologies.
>>25618919Fuck idols. Fuuuuck all of them.Especially this Kirishima Ruri in particular.Could we fuck Midori instead? Perhaps with Pinky and Mami on standby?
>>25619335You haven't watched enough Futurama.
>>25619355No I don't. Could never get into it. Like I could never get into The Cleveland Show.I'm not even sure why that thing still continues to air.
>>25619331>every timeBeing this bad at reading comprehension sure must suck.
>>25619341Man, if I wanted to hear a story of failures, I'd just ask a hobo about their life (assuming they're coherent enough).
>>25619350What else is our housewife/assistant for when we both come home after a hard few days of work?
>>25619371Technically its not a mistake. Just that one is more commonly used than the other.The sentence still parses correctly.
>>25619363>comparing Futurama to a spinoff of shitaaaaaa
>>25619376>this whole post
>>25619371Standards must be maintained, and being polite is one of them. Instead of that, you want to break down the door. How is that maintaining standards?
>>25619292The unevenness of the words on the head showed that the words were carved in while the subject was struggling.While certainly I am at Shadowrun 4 regarding the concert, (We need a quietpro earplug set, flashbangs, and a whiten noise generator for that, by the way) I think we haven't quite found the killer yet.
>>25619390If failures make stories interesting then a life of failures and pathetic mistakes should make for a gripping story.
>>25619402You sure must love Mary-Sues and stories about Mary-Sues.Have you tried fanfiction.net? There might be more of the things you are looking for.
>>25619376You don't want a character who was established with self control issues to act like someone with self control issues?She didn't change that much. And this is probably the most stress she's ever been under, and happening at the same time is one of the easiest ways to push Chiaki's buttons, which is messing with Iori. Something else that was established.
>>25619402You're overreacting. Every character needs flaws and issues to make the readers/viewers identify with them (and keep them from feeling like Mary Sues, even if they might not technically fit the term). Kicking down a door is hardly the end of the world.
[x] Open door with dynamic measuresDoes shooting count as dynamism?
>Kicking the door down>Not knocking it politely off its hinges and across the room with our Golden Fists of Fuck You
>>25619413That was one of the best moments in that mangaIt also made a lot of idiots try the same thing
>>25619411So you prefer a life of failure, then? Perhaps something along the lines of your own, something familiar to you?
>>25618968 >>25618971 >>25618986 >>25618989 >>25619021Just as you raise a heeled foot to drive it right through the heavy teak door - it's then that you force yourself to slowly lower it, and then back away with just as much deliberation. Willing yourself to pace around in circles, both your hands moving to pull out a fresh pack of cigarettes from your inventory. A metallic snap, a hiss, and two cigarettes are now rapidly being burned down to their filters, your lungs filling with calming smoke....No. No. No, you're not kicking the door down. Focus. Kharn may have fucked around with your Soul Gem to make you immune to whatever it is the Golden Weapons do to its users, but Midori didn't pull you out of your own barrier just for you to go full Murderface on a client. You promised yourself that you wouldn't, unless they gave you exact reason to."Um...Miss Murderface?" Deepthroat tries to get your attention.Not even when they're obviously trying to get a rise from you, doing everything they can to remind you of what you've done in the past. No, no, you're better than that. Better than that. Mami pushed for you to become Warmaster because she knew you'd grow into the role, and not become another Kharn.You let the still-smoking stubs of cigarette filter fall down from your lips, and you start sucking on two freshly-lit ones even before they've hit the expensively-tiled floor. [1/2]
>>25619438You're shitting me.I couldnt read it myself as it was too painful.
>>25619292Remember the whole >"Well, there was that one time where a dead body was found that looked exactly like her, right when she was holding a concert. Found only a few miles from the concert grounds. They say it was some sort of cosplayer that got killed on the way to the concert, but the conspiracy theorists think an alien killed Ruri and took her place. That was forgotten about quickly, because she was right there, and a family quickly identified the corpse as a missing daughterSayaka mentioned that this happened two years ago, just when Ruri was starting a solo and she was supposed to be under the protection of the eighth offico at the time. So either:1. This is a read herring 2. Ruri got replaced under the eighth offico's noses3. The eighth officio was actually involved in Ruri's replacement. We got lots and lots of stuff to be paranoid about.
>>25619010I'm going to pretend this is an ad for an adult video, or even a non-h erotic photoshoot. Whatever it really is, I'm sure I'll be disappointed.
The amusing thing:If "freak the fuck out and break down the door" WASN'T an option, everyone would probably be voting for it.
I am spamming the update buttun why is nothing happennnning.
>>25619461>1. This is a read herringThe one time I read read as read when reading it as read would have made more sense phonetically.
>>25619470I'm an awful speller Sue me.
Anyone else worried that Ruri seems to know... A lot about us?And that Pinky did say the one who sent the head wasn't someone with a Golden Weapon...
>>25619462http://exhentai.org/g/592252/93795245f0/Kind of disappointing really.Decuuuuuuuuuuu, why are you blueballing me.
>>25619461 Ruri is actually Wendy in disguise, she has culexus training and that's why we have only seen her in dreams
>>25619448"Miss Murderface...?" She tries again, and it's here that you finally trust yourself enough to interact with someone without drawing a killshot bead on their skulls."The...the door's here, Miss Murderface," Deepthroat murmurs, a rather desperate smile curling her lips. "You...you were walking around in circles, and I thought you were confused..."...What? She thought you were...what?Does this girl really work for Ruri?"Of...of course." The girl looks back up at you with her sullen, droopy eyes, blinking in rather wary surprise. "Is...is there something on my face? Do I have a booger hanging out--"N-no. No. Er. Can she just open the door for you? You'd do it yourself, but..."O-oh. Sure. Just let me..." Deepthroat seems to smile at this, and walks over to the door, one hand coming up to grasp the doorknob. She tries, fails, tries again, and then manages to do it with both hands."U-ugh. Haha. Er. M-my hands are a bit sweaty, haha..." the girl giggles to herself in a slow, rather sad sort of way. "S-sorry...please don't touch the doorknob, I'll clean it..."No, she doesn't need to do that. ...No, not with her own dress--"I-it's okay..."It's like looking at a mirror. Then again, mirrors have always been much more entertaining than television.[2/3]
>>25619481No, she said nobody that she had given a Golden Weapon to would send us Mami's actual head in a box.And I've been certain that Ruri was behind the moment her name came up.
>>25619461We could follow up on the family just to be sure. We could contact the 8th in an official capacity, and cite the discovery of a head as the reason. With Ruri in town, we want to see if there's any similarities with the corpse from 2 years back, just to be sure. Of course, that depends on if the 8th is on speaking terms with us after the last Incubator meeting.

>>25619487It's here that you step through, finally. Bracing yourself for whatever it is they've been doing.. . .Well. It's...no, it's not what you expected.The suite, as you remember it, seems to be have been completely redesigned from the bottom up - it's no longer the suite you defended Iori from a group of well-equipped otaku looking to get their jollies balls-deep in an idol. You don't even see the set of chairs you stole your favorite chair from. It's a bit more like an old-fashioned suite, with velvet cushions, a shag tiger rug complete with the stuffed head, and expensive mahogany furniture all over. The floor's carpeting has also been replaced with rather tasteful marble. Probably so that inquisitive guests wouldn't see the bloodstains, the sort that never do come off of floors no matter how much you scrub.But that's not what you're focusing on at the moment. It's...well, the scene you came into, the scene you'd planned on bursting into by kicking the door down...They're not even on the fucking bed. They're sitting on the couch. Iori and...what you assume to be Kirishima Ruri, a rather gothically-dressed idol with long blue-green hair tied into two very long twintails. Seriously, they're draped down the couch cushions and touching the floor. Either she's been growing her hair for a long time or someone is making some serious bank providing her hair extensions.She's...well. She's pretty. In a rather cute, priceless, expensive sort of way. But pretty enough to set your alarms off.Blue eyes shouldn't glow that much. Not without magic, at least.[3/4]

>>25619584That slutty kyoko.
>>25619558"Aha~! Chiaki Matsuda-chan, I presume?" She's holding what looks like a...script in her hands, and Iori, in casual clothes and a complete burning crimson from the neck up, is also hiding behind a similar script. The...the title of the script, printed in bold letters on the cover, is damnably familiar. 'Miracle Midori x Murder Mayumi Deluxe Uncensored OVA Episode 1 of 20 / SEASON 1' familiar."You're just in time, we were practicing VA lines on my new project! Iori-chan was helping me out! Oh, and say hi to the folks watching our webcast!" She gestures behind you - and you see Sayaka, seemingly rather...downcast, for some reason, and holding up a video camera. A little red light shining from a spot near its lens....Wait. What webcast?"Say hi, Murderface," Sayaka monotonically cheers, giving you a rather limp wave with her free hand. She looks as though she'd be anywhere else BUT here. Gone is the fan fervor. Gone is the energy that saw her elbowing two fans three times bigger than her in the face.How do you react?
>>25619577Probably being checked by Security and getting briefed on what she can and can't do near Ruri.
>>25619606Goddamn it, they already have done casting for this thing?I really need to talk to Midori about this when I see her...
>>25619606>'Miracle Midori x Murder Mayumi Deluxe Uncensored OVA Episode 1 of 20 / SEASON 1' familiar.FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF-
>>25619606>'Miracle Midori x Murder Mayumi Deluxe Uncensored OVA Episode 1 of 20 / SEASON 1' familiar.Holy fuck, what.Poor Sayaka.[x] Finish the fucking cigarette. Light another.
>>25619606[x] Shoot the camera with the DEagle while glaring at Ruri.
>>25619606"Nice to see you're all enjoying yourselves, but we do somewhat need to discuss your security arrangements. That is what you hired me for, after all."
>>25619606Apologize to Sayaka. But at least we dodged that bullet.
>>25619606Shoot the camera.
>Iori is playing Midori>Iori is the VA for her former romantic rival and attempted murderer/rapist-assistant's self-insert pornography character
>>25619606"Hi. There, done. Now turn it off before I shoot it. That's an order. "
>>25619606<deadpan> "Hi." </deadpan>Then sit near the darkest corner and keep smoking.
>>25619606Man, this ENTIRE situation has been set up to fuck with us. There is no longer a chance that Ruri isn't a Golden Weapon user setting up this situation to kill us.
>>25619606Well fucking played Decu, well fucking played.Have a golf claphttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77xckbZbohc
>>25619606[x] Wave casually at the camera. Gotta stay professional and cool; QB will have our cap if we fuck up so publicly. "A webcast? And how long will you be recording?"
>>25619606I... wasn't expecting this, not at all.>[X] ... Hi.
>>25619606[x] Throw Knife at Camera[x] "No filming or recording while Sayaka and me are around."If Sayaka doesn`t go into full bitching mode, something is off.
>>25619606Awww, Sayaka got her fangirl heart broken.Anyway, this is bullshit, and not just of the 'blatant provocation' sort either, it's obvious that she doesn't actually need us which leaves trap or lewd. And she doesn't seem to need Chiaki for the second, so escalate shadowrun levels further."Your voices don't fit."
>>25619606Deadpan "You really should provide full disclosure to your security detail beforehand, Ruri-san. I could have brought the author along."
>>25619606Discover that we are actually camera shy when we walk in on our client and not-ex voicing hentai about us.
>>25619606Project hate beams at that camera.Hate it so hard that it breaks. Goddamn. She's just put us on the net, and associated us with the goddamn manga for the entire world to see.>"What's that grinding sound">"Is somebody using a fucking whetstone?">It's Chiaki's Teeth
>>25619636Bet Ruri made sure she'd get the role.Every performance is a knifetwist in the gut.And with the popularity of the manga... shes going to be reprising the role for a long time.It'll destroy her....Well fucking played Ruri. I UTTERLY HATE YOUR GUTS NOW.
[X] Make a mental note to have a serious talk with Midori in the future. What next? Figurines? Games? Porn games?
>>25619606>[x]"I thought someone like you wouldn't stoop so low to do voice acting for porn." Look at the screen "What happened to the breakfast you promised your winners?"Oh no, because of us she is going to have horrible stuff done to her!
>>25619636Actually notice she said HER new project not their new projectMakes me think Iori doesn't have the role or didn't take it but Ruri did
>>25619651No. Nobody actually knows who Green-Green is right now, we don't want to bust the secret before knowing if Midori is down with it.
>>25619668Yeah, seems like Iori's just helping her practice.In front of a webstream, apparently. Which is suspicious, as I can't see why she'd agree to that.
[x] Wave casually at the camera. Gotta stay professional and cool; QB will have our cap if we fuck up so publicly."A webcast? And how long will you be recording?"
>>25619668Ah, my bad.Though that still leaves me wondering, is Ruri voicing Midori or 'Mayumi'?And if it's Mayumi, is Sayaka going to be stupid enough to suggest we give her a demonstration of the character's voice?
>>25619606[X]"Yes well very good Miss Kirishima, that's lovely but onto the matter at hand, why did you feel it necessary to pull some elaborate ruse that achieved somewhere in the region of nothing down there?I mean did think you were doing me a favour or were you just dead set on showing off."
>>25619651Ahaha! Wonderful!Of course, Midori wouldn't show up for this, but Ruri doesn't need to know that.
>>25619629>gothicly-dressedDoesn't Mami hang out with some goth loli who may or my not be her girlfriend?
>>25619606>Episode 1 of 20How deep does the rabbit hole go?
>>25619686Lets not give any indication she pissed Chiaki off.
>>25619606Play the professional. No reaction no rising to her taunts
>>25619606>How do you react?Deadpan "Hi." Take seat next to Sayaka (that is behind the camera)
So I guess we've given up on the whole 'we're the fucking Warmaster, fuck Ruri's games' thing, huh?
>>25619646That'd be kind of hard to do, since we pushed Sayaka into the role of ticket-winning fangirl and she'll be expected in every shot of Ruri in public.
>>25619606>>25619646This! But add: "First Rule: No recordings of me or the Blueberry.Second Rule: You inform me beforehand of any PR-Stunts you plan on doing.Third Rule: Do not play games with me.If you can follow these simple guidelines everything will be peachy."[x] Deliver this speach with your usual monotone and a glare.
>>25619690No, because Mami has a boyfriend.
>>25619693All the way down>>25619690She does actually, good memory
>>25619676Nobody needs to know Midori is Green-Green. We're just offhandedly mentioning we know the author.Besides, if we need to, Midori could make a fake face for fan greeting. Which would probably be ideal to keep her actual identity a secret.
>>25619704NOPE.Why are we brandishing weapons about the principal. Theres no need for that. I vote against it.
>>25619661Ovas aren't porn, at most they are softcore. And any anime work is golden for an idol. At least this explains why Iori is here, it's more than just a backup dancer. We should be happy for her.We can wright this off as them not fucking with us. Practicing lines. As much as we hate it, MM x MM is a thing and it is happening no matter what we do. Well, we could kill Midori. Let's just entertain the idea for now while looking for the best couch to sit on, or leave the room for a moment and steal one from an adjacent room. It's in the best interest of the client, since it will make us happy, and that will keep her alive.
>>25619690There was a throw away line when Kyouko picked us up at the airport about Mami showing a couple of VIPs around the building, and that was why she couldn't pick us up at the airport. One was a girl in gothloli clothing.
[x]"Hey, Sayaka, hey Iori." Cigarette lighting. "Good evening, Miss Ruri. I hope I'm not interrupting." Work out the best angle to shoot her at so that the blood spray doesn't go all over Iori. (Getting Sayaka covered is a bonus.)
>>25619606[x]Wave to the camera, deadpan. They don't need to know how hard we're grinding our teeth. Then, say that we're sorry for the brusque introduction but we need to speak to our acquaintance in private for a moment.Drag out Iori and/ or Sakuya, and possibly eat a cigarette in rage.
>>25619700That's a live streaming webcast. You want to do something that will put us on the entire net as someone who berated an idol? We'd have a PR shitstorm and Ruri fans out for our blood, making our job exponentially more difficult.
GUYSHEY, GUYSA WEBCAST ISN'T A RECORDINGTHIS SHIT IS GOING OUT LIVETO PEOPLE WHO WILL BE RECORDING IT THEMSELVESPEOPLE ALL OVER THE FUCKING INTERNET ARE RECORDING THE WARMASTER OF THE NINTH RIGHT FUCKING NOWTHIS IS NOT A GOOD THING AT ALL[x] Kill it and call Kyuubey, inform him of 'holy fucking shit biggest information leak ever we're going to need favours from every fucking officio to contain it RIGHT NOW' in deadpan.
>>25619714AgreedWe don't need to start off our tenure as warmaster with a fucking PR nightmare combo, Iori was bad enough of a PR fuck up
>>25619745As long as we don't introduce ourselves, we're fine.
>>25619606I'll third >>25619646 & >>25619704
>>25619606Whatever we do make sure we mention that Blue's part of the package. But not the box!
>>25619706I think there may have been some implication that they parted ways at some point, and I think she may have gotten with someone else in the meantime.
>>25619754we don't need to start our tenure as warmaster off by being broadcast to the entire planet either
Replace "choose" with "confiscate" in my Write-in. Much more personable and doesn't broadcast to the entire world about the Japanese minor carrying loaded firearms.
So do you think Sayaka will ever forgive us for this?
>>25619727Iori isn't confirmed to have the role, Ruri mentioned it was HER role not THEIRS
So, we area all in favor of shutting down the webcast before everything else right?
>>25619646If Sayaka DOES start bitching, candidly remind her that she's on duty and speaking to the warmaster.
>>25619606[x] Just wave and go sit beside Sayaka.No need for violence.
Guys, DO NOT FLIP OUT. Seriously. We have even less reason to now that we know Iori didn't just get dragged into a hotel and raped or something, this should be small fry to us. Besides, remember, this is going out live. We're smart. We're better than this! We can be better than Kharn....Kharn would probably be critiquing their orgasm noises right now and offering to... help them come up with "more genuine" ones.
[X]Stop time, kill the feed.
>>25619762So far we have been introduced as Chiaki Matsuda, that's all anyone knows about usWe start trying to call the shots and we will be outed as a warmaster which is much worse than simply being some random girl who appeared on her live stream
>>25619766or it could be that Ruri is the one heading the project, hence it would be HERS, and maybe Iori has a part in it, we don't know shit, you don't know shitso please, until we know shit, stop sprouting 'facts'
>>25619758So you want everyone on the fucking net calling the police to report an unstable attacker in the same room as Ruri, causing a massive PR disaster that QB may not be able to contain because it's on the net already. It's already being watched on this worlds 4chan analogue and you want to get them riled up?
>>25619745We can cover this up ourselves if we just say the right things.
>>25619762No one has still said anything about Warmaster yet.And besides, the fans will just be MORE RURI, GET LOST FAGET. The way to attract attention is to demand less antention. If we just ignore it and move quietly to one side, no one will care.
>>25619606[x] NO VIOLENCEJust say hi, wave maybe and go sit with Sayaka.
>>25619768No. We still don't know what's all going on, and we don't need to start off like a jackbooted thug just yet. It's not like there's any huge problem just yet.
>"Say hi, Murderface," Sayaka monotonically cheers, giving you a rather limp wave with her free hand. She looks as though she'd be anywhere else BUT here. Gone is the fan fervor. Gone is the energy that saw her elbowing two fans three times bigger than her in the face.Hey guysIT LOOKS LIKE SAYAKA IS BEING MIND CONTROLLED RIGHT NOW.
>>25619768FUCK NOThats the best sign that something is wrong.The Show Must Go On.
>>25619768No because that makes things more suspicious. Just go into a corner until the damn thing is done. It's fucking live right now, and doing anything to our our authority, position, or possession of weapons to the entire fucking world is stupid beyond belief.
>>25619606[x] Just greet the cam and leave the spotlight
>>25619802That misspelled filename offends me much more than the image.
>>25619802She's either being mind controlled or has been amazingly disillusioned and had her mental image of the idol shattered.Either way this is suspicious as fuck.
>>25619802They say the fastest way to break someone's heart is to introduce them to their most famous crush, and have said crush be not the perfect person they envisioned. Or even a giant asshole.
>>25619788I am actually not sprouting any 'facts' I am just clarifying that so far the only person we know has the role is RuriUntil Iori actually tells us she is playing a role in it we don't know anything
>>25619778Our timestop requires phsyically manipulating our shield. It is not instant like it is in the anime.
>>25619778Terrible idea. Besides that Pinky has a jealousy-fueled hatred of Iori, the show is live and any interruption will provoke a disproportionate response from the fans.
[X] Call up Midori, ask her about the cast for the OVA
Nah. Mind control is spooky obedient puppet, not upset blueberry.Besides, better her than us.
>>25619768NoTrying to throw our weight around and act like a big shot just means we will get more attention than we needAct like a friend, acquaintance etc and get on with it so that we fly under the radarSuddenly shutting down the stream will just make us the focus of attention when all the otaku worldwide start asking just who this girl who told Ruri-San to turn her stream off was
>>25619802We do have our phone at hand, right?With butler suit Kyouko pictures, right?You know, if we needed to snap her back to reality...
>>25619826Actually, with how Sayaka has mentioned about being a fan, it is actually very likely that she met Ruri when she was just starting out. Smalltime Idols just starting out tend to meet these fans and treat them well. They're the first fans after all.So her idol has changed? If shes says that, the bodyswitcher theory becomes even more plausible.
>>25619606[x]Spaghetti for three seconds, then deadpan "Hi." and wave back with just as much enthusiasm.Then step the fuck out of the shot and let Ruri do her thing, maybe she'll explain what the hell's going on.
If we only had the hat on...Iori was already exposed once and would be to nervous to jump us, but god what I would give to see Ruri make a whore out of herself on a webcast.
>>25619606[x]Mentally swear at Midori.
>>25619868But we do have the hat on.SHE NOT HUMAN
Shit, I just realized, we are in magical garb right now. We need to play the part of Murder Mayumi. Best way to not have our cover blown right now. What do we remember about the manga we read. We need a one liner.
>>25619876>we cosplayer now.
>>25619876For all they know, we're just a cosplaying themed staff.
>>25619876But Chiaki always walks around like this. She literally just wears her magical girl outfit everywhere. If normal people on the street haven't commented, I'm not sure it's even that strange of a thing anymore.
>>25619868>implying that's what she wasn't planning earlierShe wants to whore all over us already.
>>25619876Make the tongue gesture. Kharn taught us how to do to properly, after all, we may as well use it.
>>25619892Ok, fuck you anon.I need to wipe my screen down.
>>25619876You are genius, let's go.
>>25619876One liner?Take out a blue rose from the bouquet in inventory.Smell it and throw it at the cam. Then disappear as it covers the lens.
>>25619892>>25619879And this is how, during the next assignment meeting with QB, he announced we were somehow hired for the live action of Miracle Midori x Murder Mayumi.
>>25619888Normal street people don't read MMxMM.If they do they brush off seeing Mayumi as 'nah no way'.
>>25619923Hell yeah, play up the Murder Mayumi cosplay / promotional thing. It is something the fans could easily explain
Rolled 3>>25619923Do this.
Is there any real reason to be worried about being on camera? No need go hide our ID; bad people know who we are already
>>25619941>Normal street people don't read MMxMM.I'm pretty sure you don't get to the point of an international adaptation without having at least some pull outside of the otaku subculture.
uh hey guysvoting ended 20 minutes ago
>>25619871We do?[X] Look at the camera. Cunt-breaker hat-flourish + ponytail-hair-sweep-equivalent.[X] Turn to Rori, "We must discuss your security detail for the next few days as soon as possible." Take a seat and wait for them to finish. Play-up the silent cool and broody persona of Murder Mayumi.
>/tg/ comes up with a good plan of pretending to be a cosplayer>Then the realization kicks in that we're 20 minutes late for any of our plans to be of any use.
>>25619923Better yet, shut off the camera as the rose covers the lens. Perfect way to cut off the webcast without it being super suspicious.
>>25619959Mostly we're just faffing around, now.
>>25619923>>25619962These sound perfect. Classy and understated.
>>25619982Pity Decu won't do it.
>>25619959>It's like I'm really playing a tabletop game!
>>25619954Normal street people IN THE STREETS THAT CHIAKI IS SEEN WALKING.This is a fucking global webcast going out to potentially millions of people who DO read MMxMM. This has the potential to not only reveal our identity, but also CONFIRM THE EXISTENCE OF MAGICAL GIRLS TO THE WIDER PUBLIC.We really, REALLY need to call QB about this.
>>25619994Or...We play the fucking role so that the masses of geeks think WE ARE A FUCKING HIRED COSPLAYER then we neatly sidestep the whole magical girls are real issue
>>25619994Hence we need to play it up as being harmless cosplaying.We can call coobie after that.
>>25619923>>25619704>>25619962Holy shit, those!
>>25619994That only happens if we do something stupid like pull a gun out of hammer space. At worst we reveal our private life to the world, not our Magical Girl life.And we really shouldn't depend on QB to bail us out of everything.
>>25620005>>25620013Except neither our outfit nor general appearance matches Murder Mayumi. She is BASED on us, not directly copied.
>>25619639 >>25619699 >>25619739 >>25619776You narrow your eyes at the idol, before turning back towards the camera, breathing smoke from your nose. You give the glinting lens a glare, before grumbling something approximating a greeting at it - and it's then that you step out of the shot, making a beeline right for the couch that Sayaka's sitting on."Ah~? Oh, well, it seems Chiaki-chan's a bit camera-shy, everyone, but don't worry! You'll be able to see much more of her and Sayaka-chan too in the next few days, and they'll be right there with me at the concert!" The green-haired idol flashes the camera a cheerful, dazzling grin as you firmly plant your ass on the expensive cushion. Yeah, fuck everything about this job."Kill me now, Murderface," You hear Sayaka murmur to you, low and slow. Her voice low enough not to be caught by the camera's microphone, as the both of you continue to watch the two idols practice what sounds like a very frantic and heated scene between Miracle Midori(Ruri) and Murder Mayumi(Iori). Deepthroat is bustling quietly about, giving the camera an awkward, droopy smile as she tries her best to keep out of its range as much as possible, while unpacking what looks like a rather inordinate amount of luggage.You've sufficiently clamped down enough on your anger to be surprised at what's happened to the Eversor. What happened to her energy, earlier? Is she under mind control, or something? Do you need to put her out of her misery?"What? No. It's just...uh..." Sayaka shakes her head. "I...you know that saying, where you're not supposed to meet your heroes?"Yeah?"I met her. And..." Sayaka's shoulders droop even lower. "Man. I just...I just don't wanna talk about it, Murderface. Not with you, sorry. But I wish I never got into the fucking car with you."...Well. That's...this is the first time you've felt bad for Sayaka.What about this webcast thing, though? Was this part of the contest?[1/2]
>>25620039This isn't 'bailing us out'. This is 'massive fucking breach that needs multiple Officios working together to have a hope of containing'.
>>25620044Poor Sayaka.Meeting your heroes is usually a disappointment.
Rolled 17>>25620044Damnit, we didn't do the rose thing.
>>25620044"Huh? Oh, yeah. It is. It's a twenty-four hour thing. People are gonna be watching everything the contest winner and Ruri does. ...Well, nothing illegal or shit, but you get what I mean." She gives the camera a shake. "This thing is supposed to be on all the time, unless she's sleeping or in the bathroom or changing and so on. Hot springs and swimming are included, though."...Who the fuck watches this sort of thing?"Fans," Sayaka murmurs. "Real fans.""N-nhh! M-Mayumi-san, that's...! If you do that, I'll go crazy...!" Ruri wails, one hand even coming up to her cheek for effect, her breathing hard. Iori herself is trying not to look at Ruri, while attempting to deliver her lines with the same kind of enthusiasm."She's just...she's just not who I expected, Murderface." Sayaka murmurs hollowly. "I wanna go home."How do you react?
>>25620067[x] Comrade style hug, since we're sitting next to her. Pat her shoulder. It'll be over soon.
Guys! Fuck! GUYS! IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!FUCK! This is why Ruri wanted us as a Bodyguard. Its supposed to be a PR-Stunt. MMxMM is hugely popular right now, Ruri got a job offer for VA work for it months ago, when Iori told her about us she figured that while we may not be Murder Mayumi (HUE!) we resemble her darn close when it comes to behaviour and character. While we will be around she has some free PR thanks to Chiaku being a MurderMayumi lookalike.Jesus christ, Decu, you are a mastermind!
Pat her on the back, maybe mumble a apology for breaking her dream.We hate each others guts but something on a psychological level...seems harsh
Rolled 14>>25620067[x] Sorry, but I need you for the security detail.
>>25620067[x] "I'm not going on camera for 24 seconds. She either cuts it or we're out. I've had enough of her shit already."
>>25620067>[x] Comrade style hug, since we're sitting next to her. Pat her shoulder. It'll be over soon.>>25620082Maybe. We wait and see.Finally caught up with MGNQ, awesome.
>>25620052Nothing has been revealed so far, no need to start asking for more press blackouts, it would just bring more attention to it. We need to let QB know to get a team on monitoring and scrubbing these PR-stunts so we don't need to start making calls.
>>25620067>[x] "I'm genuinely sorry"There is nothing much we can do now. We better keep quiet.
>>25620067"Feeling's mutual, but at least you're not having porn of YOU acted out in front of YOU"
>>25620067[X] "Hang in there, soldier. I'm counting on YOU to keep me from depopulating the entire hotel. "
>>25620067Well, shit."If you really want I could bring in Midori. I think she's good enough that she can pretend to be you until the 'prize' is over. Also, she might enjoy this. The line reading, I mean."
>>25620067>[X] Sorry for ruining your fandom... if it's any comfort, I'll be right here, suffering along side you.
>>25620067Attempt to stop spaghettiProbably fail, but address Sayaka nonetheless."Did you come here to play fangirl, or did you come here to back me up? Given my track record of shit going wrong at the worst possible time, I'll be needing the help."
>>25620067Arm over her shoulder. Ask if she wants to bail and switch places with Midori, so that she can go hang out with Kyouko and do the kind of work she's probably better suited to and more likely to enjoy.
>>25620067[x] Offer her a small, awkward apology and pat her shoulder. Then... "...Should I..." Make a finger gun motion toward Ruri, out of view of the camera.
>>25620067[x] "Sorry. But you're the best I've got, and I have a bad feeling about this. On the bright side, when this is done, we can cut loose, alright?"
>>25620106>>25620114She's probably doing that Reconnaissance with Kyouko at the moment.
>>25620067Hug and pat. Hug and pat...
>>25620096Good luck convincing QB about that.
>>25620082THAT'S JUST WHAT HE WANTS US TO THINK.THIS IS A RUSE. A CLEVER TRICK DESIGNED TO THROW US OFF BALANCE. THINGS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE THIS STRAIGHTFORWARD. THERE ARE NO SIMPLE EXPLANATIONS, AND IF YOU SEE ONE, IT'S A TRAP.ALWAYS A TRAP.
>>25620103>>25620107These. We should be a good mixture of apologetic, stoic and disgruntled.
>>25620067[x] So, everyone else seems to be accounted for, what's Iori doing here? Surely her time's too important to waste helping her colleague act out lesbian smut.
>>25620067>[x] Comrade style hug, since we're sitting next to her. Pat her shoulder. It'll be over soon.
>>25620067"I'll be needing you here, unfortunately. Try to bear with it....Sorry, I guess."
>>25620067[x] "That makes two of us."We really need to talk to the client off-camera for a bit. About said camera. And how it is really not compatible with our security gig, given that the existence of magical girls is supposed to be kept on the DL.Ultimatum: Camera off, or no magical girl bodyguards for miss Ruri.
>>25620121Exactly why the offer to swap places is a good idea.
>>25620130Not gonna lie, this has only raised my shadowrun levels. Things are going too smoothly dammit!
>>25620044>>25620067"We`re not going to be on cam. The boss would get an ulcer. I will talk to her about that. "[x] Take the cam[x] Point it at your own face[x] "Show`s over."[x] Throw it on the floor.Wait a minute, can you imagine this shit? I mean, there is this webcast with two idols doing some lines for a upcoming animu live and there walks a an angry girl right into the shot who looks suspiciously like MurderMayumi.I imagine the Fanboards going crazy right now.
>>25620067[x]"Do you think it's too late to give Kharn her job back?"
>>25620067>How do you react?"Don't worry, with my luck things will get fucked up somehow in less than a day. You know, terrorist attack, rogue Magical Girls, aliens or some such." offer her a cigarette "I know you don't smoke but take it from experienced, you look like you really need one right now."
>>25620128QB won't need much convincing considering how badly she's lied to us about this job.'Provide escort', 'meet for breakfast', sure right okay SUDDENLY HUGE CROWD, LIVE WEBCAST, NOTHING LIKE WHAT WE WERE INFORMED.And even if we can't convince him, what's he gonna do, fire us?
>>25620146Throw in a hair flick and we are golden.
>>25620067Tell her to try to make the best of it.How is Ruri like, anyway?
I wonder how Ruri is going to explain us. Sayaka is here because of the contest, we are just some person who walked in the penthouse suite.
>>25620146>[x] Throw it on the floor.I think you mean [x] Crush bare-handed.
>>25620146Thats really not suspicious at all, honestly.Cosplay is a thing.
>>25620103ignore mine[X] "Hang in there, soldier. I'm counting on YOU to keep me from depopulating the entire hotel. "on another note, Decu>what class would Oriko be in, Callidus or Vindicare?Captcha: yfdaybr FACTORSeveryone, keep an eye out for yfdaybr
>>25620142Point taken. I'd rather have Sayaka for when the shit inevitably hits the fan.
>>25620169Probably the same way she'll explain spaghetti-tan. An assistant or something.
>>25620169Iori's friend here for moral support.It's even slightly not false!
>>25620153What did we expect? Was being a magical girl prostitute any better than this?She want's the Murder Mayumi Experience for her webcast. Lets give it to her.
Don't forget that there are magical girls in the office who's powers revolve around the internet. We can have a team intercept all outgoing data and remove anything the Boss doesn't like.
>>25620067[x]What, and miss out on your suffering?First rule: stick behind the camera. Second rule: lounge around relaxing.
>>25620153Retire us. Or, since we haven't even been ratified yet, demote us down from Warmaster and take us off the active roster. He may have promised to not kill us, but that doesn't he has to tolerate our continued failures.
>>25620169Character trainer for the part of Mayumi.
>>25620192The Murderface Experience has no brakes.
>>25620192We expected to be able to shut her down with brute deadpan power. Because she would be mostly NO ON CAMERA TO MILLIONS OF VIEWERS, LIVE.
>>25620067For what it's worth Sayaka I am truly sorry for thisI would say go home but well the contest sort of shoots that down and I would like to have someone I know I can rely on if things do go south. Ruri is an impostor, spaghetti-chan is the real Ruri who has been magicked to be utterly unrecognizable and is kept around as some sort of sick joke
>>25620192That would involve shooting her legs off.
>>25620204So who was the body from last time? They mind-swapped original spaghetti-tan with Ruri's body, killed her off then.. dopplegangered her? That doesn't even make sense.
>>25620198>Retire us>for walking away from a reaaaally bad jobyeahnahmost we'd get would be short griefseed rations
>>25620179How is spaghetti even functioning right now? I mean, sure she must be somewhat used to accidental media exposure if she's a long-time assistant, but being on camera (if briefly) in front of practically every fan, while Rori/Iori voice smut no less, sounds like it'd break her.
>>25620211Don't expect you're going to find many people in the crowd right now who would say no to that, given a chance.
>>25620204fuck, that makes some weird sorta sense
>>25620204More mundane solution:Spaghetti tan is Ruri, but has crippling self confidence issues off stage. Ruri is both an actor and a life coach.
>>25620211We ARE supposed to be professional with her...
>>25620067[x] "I'm genuinely sorry"
>>25620219I would guess that it was a way to get rid of any suspicion that there were two different Ruri's out there, a double appears mysteriously dead, turns out to be a fan and Ruri is kept out of sight for a while.Sounds like the perfect cover for her to come back from a swap
>>25620235>Shoot clients legs off>Professional
>>25620225I wish these weren't shopped, they are hilarious and adorable.
>>25620219A dead fan with really good cosplay.Its a red herring.
If we're going to be shooting anyone's legs off, it's going to be Midori's for this porn sensation getting out of control, and it's possibility of leading us to unintentionally becoming a celebrity. It's okay, she can be fixed afterwards just like last time.
>>25620280If we do it enough she'll start to like it.It's win-win.
>>25620264>19621677>You thank her for her professionalism by shooting her kneecaps out.
>>25620280>>25620286This sounds like the beginning of an abusive relationship.Just like Miracle Midori and Murder Mayumi!
Soon as we get the camera turned off we should grab her by the collar, get right up in her face, and ask her what the FUCK she thinks she's doing.I know this seems like a troll suggestion, so let me go through my reasoning:If she IS an android, we'll be able to tell from how heavy she is.If she IS a magical girl, she'll break free.If she DOES have a golden weapon, [x] THE FLESH OF FALLEN ANGELS.If none of these things is true, we intimidate an arrogant civilian who thinks she can just treat the Warmaster of an Officio Assassinorum like some sort of toy. We deal with reality-breaking monsters on a daily basis, a prissy idol bitch is literally nothing in comparison.
Rolled 11>>25620280Didn't we already do that?
>>25620305Beginning? No no, that was a long time ago, when we FIRST shot her legs off. And then raped her via soul gem.
>>25620314Speaking of, since Ruri is not-Miku what are the odds of her actually being a robot?
>>25620314But THAT's the issue. It will never be turned off.It's an excellent defense unless we really want to start a PR disaster until we find proof of somethign seriously wrong.The good news is that we are not forced to stay with her, unlike Sayaka. Meaning we could poke our nose around
>>25620325If Ruri is a robot, what are the odds of spaghetti chan being her creator?
>>25620321An auspicious start to young love between two girls.
>>25620280>>25620286>>25620305I can already see it.- Chiaki is on her next job as meguca- Suddenly a crowd of obvious basement dwellers and neckbeards starts forming around- "H-H-Hey, nice MurderMayumi-Cosplay, c-c-can I take a photo?"There were no survivors that day.
I think we should try and search her room, we'll see if there's anything else going on in here.Also, I was just thinking about how awful it would of been if we'd brought Green with us instead. Not only would she have had to endure the embarrassment of listening to the VA of her hentai. She also would of remembered how we shoot her legs off in here.
>>25620314>who thinks she can just treat the Warmaster of an Officio Assassinorum like some sort of toyExcept, ya know, QB gave his implicit consent to it. Which means that our boss is fine with his second-in-command getting pushed around so long as the pay is good enough.
>>25620293>check that line on magicalgirlnoir.com>read through that scene again... we never did recover that video.RURI HAS IT CALLING IT NOW
>>25620344>Threaten to shoot the greasy fucks>Get complimented on how accurately we portray her character
>>25620344We're going to have to buy some normal clothes after this. We can make it a date with Mami.
>>25620363Must be huge then. Hundreds of thousands at the least.
>>25620371>When we do shoot one we get shouts of "I'm next! Shoot me Murder Mayumi!" surrounding us.
>>25620374Midori should go, too. While her meguca costume is pretty spiffy, it doesn't look like she has any other change of clothes other than the hoodie/spats she has.
>>25620363No, he agreed to the job as stated, simple 'escort'.His opinion will likely change when we inform him of the duplicity.
>>25620368Mami or the clean-up crew probably got rid of it. Or it ended up with one of our fans in the officio and I doubt she'd just give it.>>25620375We also need to ask QB how much he got paid.
>>25620388>stop time>C4>suddenly it is raining chunky salsa
>>25620368Kyubey's people most likely came through and recovered it while cleaning up. Couldn't have something like that leak and ruin the firm's rep.
>>25620388>Start cursing Midori at the top of our lungs>Someone records it, YouTube sensation of "Mitakihara's best Murder Mayumi cosplayer"
>>25620395Escort, and "show her a good time". I don't think his opinion will change at all.
>>25620361That would be nothing compared to how awkwardness of having to directly meet the girl she almost helped get gangraped on video. And that in itself would be nothing compared to what might happen if Iori recognized her.
>>25620340Spaghetti is a magical girl, her wish was to have an older sister who was really talented that she could follow around. This is because she had an older sister but said sister died tragically (bonus points if spaghetti caused it).However, the Faustian deal was twisted and her replacement sister turned out to be a huge bitch. The dead fangirl was bait designed to mislead us. Calling it now
>>25620420Dead fangirl was murdered in a fit of rage by Spaghetti tan.She thought she was the real thing.
>>25620394She also seems to own a white shirt. Possibly she only owned it on the offchance she might get sprayed with champagne.
>>25620412There was no mention of a crowd of rabid fans, nor 24 hour webcast of EVERY GODDAMN THING RURI DOES.Besides, I really doubt he expected us to actually bone Ruri.
>>25620431Basically the key here is to understand what the relationship between Spaghetti and Rumi. Once we unlock that everything else might fall into place. It's great that we don't have to hold that camera and can move around.
So the 'simple 4-day escort' gig has officially turned into 'Murderface's worst nightmare she never knew she had HA HA FAUST? ARE YOU SERIOUS? SHE'S GO NOTHING ON THIS SHIT' gig.That oil platform's looking awful tempting right about now.
>>25620420But that doesn't explain the "Family came to claim the body"Nice try, however.
>>25620462They were bribed. There, explained.
>>25620435We can't expect everything to be covered in the folder. Who gives a shit what wasn't said, we need to roll with it.
>>25620435>no mention of a crowd of rabid fansI'd expect that to be kind of expected, what with our contract to escort Ruri during one of her biggest concerts ever.The 24-hour webcast I'll grant you, but since we're supposed to be escorting an idol during a very public concert, and not just keeping her safe in a hotel and then to the airport like with Iori, I'm fairly certain that QB expected a higher than normal profile on this contract.I mean, really, we're going to be an escort for one of the biggest idols at her concert and you didn't expect us to be photographed by hundreds of rabid fans?
>>25620462I meant that the dead fangirl was literally just a fan girl, a real person as it were; and that she was mentioned only as bait to mislead us.
>>25620474Fitting more than two sentences into there would have been nice.
>>25620460It's not THAT bad imo. Iori seems to be fine if out of place (seriously, why is she here) so as long as we're behind the camera and new issues don't pop up, we're basically just bored in a tedious situation with Sayaka who's in a terrible mood.Actually, I take it back, this is pretty much the worst.
>>25620460To be honest, we're the Warmaster now. We're expected to be able to adapt to changing situations and get the job done, without handholding or backup. The whole reason for the position is so that QB doesn't have to do everything himself and he can have a Magical Girl who can get things done without his help.
>>25620494"Why she's here" may be because Ruri wants to make her miserable and one of our initial thoughts was that some of this mission was in fact a gamble to do just that.
>>25620460Oil platform is catharsis for when we're done here.We just have to keep a lid on it until we're done, then we get to go and blow everything up and kill a lot of people.
>>25620474Are you fucking serious? This is mission-critical information that was deliberately withheld from us, likely just to ANNOY us.>>25620483>>25620499Yeah, we're the Warmaster, which means we've got more important shit to be doing that acting as eyecandy for some self-absorbed press queen.If she actually needs protecting she's going the wrong way about making us give a fuck. And if she doesn't, she will soon.
>>25620507Well sure, but why would Iori's agency (presumably, can't see her volunteering to make orgasmic noises on camera) want her to be doing this? The concert makes sense as a publicity thing, this doesn't seem to match her image at all.
>>25620489We could have done our own research as well. It is a publicly hosted event. A schedule was probably posted all over the internet. We can still probably get our hands on a schedule.
>>25620512Did we send that recon team to scope out the oil rig yet? What about preparing separate ingress and egress routes?As much fun it would be to destroy the rig, we're supposed to recover an item safely and deliver it to the client. We don't even know if the item is a thing or a person.
>>25620523Our job is still to do what the fuck we are toldKyuubey told us we could take this job and in doing so we have agreed to follow the orders for this jobWe don't get to play boss with this, we only get to boss around our subordinates in the officio and choose our missionsSurprise surprise we took a mission so now we have to play along
>>25620531I imagine we'd have know this was going to happen then, I doubt Mami would miss something like that unless it was released after we left..
>>25620523This is information that was publicly available that we didn't bother to check. For fuck's sake, Sayaka knew about it because she's a fan, we could have just asked her Ruri's itinerary for the week and we'd have had it.As for being the Warmaster, our Incubator decided that we ARE going to be acting as eye-candy for a self-absorbed press queen. So you're just whining about the situation at this point instead of going about it professionally.
>>25620549This seriously. We could be sour and brooding over this whole thing. Or we can have some fun with it. We basically have an excuse to act debauched and drink on the job.
>>25620523Then we shouldnt have taken the job in the first fucking place.We had a choice to refuse, we didn't.
>>25620523We've got no real arguments for dropping this shit though. The initial ticket-thing we were fully in our right to ignore - and we did - but nothing that's happened since we arrived is in any way a break of contract or misinformation - there was never a chance Ruri would stay out of the limelight for several days on end after all, you can't exactly use the camera as an argument unless she tries to drag Chiaki in front of it and won't take no for an answer.
>>25620557>unless it was released after we left.But Sayaka was already prepared for it, and so were hundreds of fans.Obviously this information must have been available. So it's probably because we didn't ask or pay attention.
>>25620567>Ruri wanted to have a good time with the Warmaster>Maximum Overkharn
>>25620587It's warmaster hat time haha! Time for rapings
>>25620587>Implying she didn't want exactly that.
>>25620576The fan thing, yes, that we should have known.That we were the fan and getting a 24h stream of us? Even Sayaka seemed thrown by that.
The tl;dr thing:Call QB. See if he knew about this shit.If No, he doesn't know about this shit, get him to extort more money out/see if we should withdraw or whatever.If Yes, just go skulk in the corner while smoking, keeping out the way of the webcam and being suffering with Sayaka and waiting for a chance to shoot people's legs off.It's that simple. We don't need to worry more than that.
>>25620539We probably wouldn't be told 'item' if they meant 'person', unless said person was a corpse.Shoot our way in, stuff it into inventory, shoot our way out.>>25620549>the orders for this jobWhich were 'provide escort', if I recall correctly.We will provide escort. We will NOT play along with her stupid little games that seem designed specifically to irritate us to the point of just murdering everything within a five mile radius.>>25620561We were told we were meeting her for lunch. This isn't lunch.Hell, we technically haven't even started the job yet.>>25620570If the job had said anything about a mob or webcast I sure as fuck would have voted to refuse it.>>25620574>We've got no real arguments for dropping this shit though.Yes we do. We're the Warmaster. If we decide we have better shit to be doing, we go and do it. Ruri wants to complain, fine. QB wants to complain, fine. Neither of them have the ability to actually MAKE us comply.Hell, QB promoted us specifically so we could make calls like this.
>>25620576Honestly, this should not be something we'd need to explicitly ask for. We have people putting together dossiers for every mission every magical girl in the Officio takes, it's their job to catch stuff like this that could significantly alter the mission parameters and put it in the fucking dossier.
>>25620587Chiaki will stay strong. If only due to paranoia (remember first time an idol wanted to fuck).
>>25620608You are a colossal faggot.
>>25620204Actually. Fucking actually. That's actually possible.
>>25620612This. Its either 1. A massive failure on the part of our info gathering teams or 2. Ruri intentionally lied to us.Either way doublechecking that this is legit is a GOOD IDEA WITH MINIMAL DOWNSIDES.
>>25620608You are so full retard it isn't funnyQB can and will make us do this, being warmaster means we are his second not his equalIf we start acting like a fuck up again we will very quickly find our time as warmaster and quite possibly our time in the land of the not quite dead coming to a very abrupt endSee we aren't the boss of shit, we are a contractor. We are hired to do a job which if we don't do, we dieVery simple thing which you seem to be catastrophically failing to understand
>>25620630And you're a pussy bitch afraid of doing what actually needs to be done.Or a Rurifag.
>>25620647>RurifagI'm not even that guy, but what the fuck are you on about?
>>25620647Use your faggot eyes. See:>>25620642
>>25620647Are you serious?I think we're done here.
Before we do something stupid, how abotu calling Kyubey and ask how much goddam money they're paying for Ruri to actually ask the Warmaster and how come no one warned us about this crap?
>>25620647Hahaha oh wow.
>>25620642Kyuubey is not going to kill us off for walking off a job.He would not kill us off even if we just murdered every person in the hotel.Kirika fucked up multiple missions to exactly that degree before getting a retirement order. And I think we're a tad more valuable to QB than she was, considering our connection to Pinky and the Golden Weapons.
>>25620608>Which were 'provide escort', if I recall correctly.It was >specifically asking to 'have a good time' with the Warmaster of the Ninth>If the job had said anything about a mob or webcast I sure as fuck would have voted to refuse it.We were going to be with Ruri for 4 days and during a major concert. Of course there would have been mobs! Not thinking that there would be mobs or any webstreams at all is to completely be ignorant of what being at a concert entails.And QB can MAKE us comply. We are his second-in-command, NOT his equal. We work for him, and under him, not beside him.
>>25620672Probably more than what QB is paying his warmaster.
>>25620672Sounds good to me. And after that, send Midori a picture of dickbutt on her phone to show our displeasure about the MMxMM situation.
New rule:When we get jobs from QB, we get from him:1: What the client said they wanted2: How much they're paying for this bullshit.Then we hand that to Midori and get her to summarize.It'd save us a lot of asking "what the fuck is she actually paying for".
>>25620680He isn't going to murder us outright but if we start acting like this every time something goes wrong we are going to very quickly run out of favor with him and when we do he is going to cut his losses as he thought he should do the moment he saw us
>>25620079 >>25620083 >>25620090 >>25620100You reach over, and...drape your arm over her shoulders, giving her a quick squeeze. On any other day, in any other situation, you'd have shoved your arm into a woodchipper instead - it'd have the same exact result, and would probably be a lot less painful. But right now...well, you're just not used to Sayaka being this way. You're supposed to be the sad sack of the team, not her. It's wrong, unnatural, and all your fault.And you're so, so sorry."Christ, don't apologize. You're going to make me cry." Sayaka mutters, with the tones of a child that's just been told that Santa Claus isn't just nonexistent, he's also dead. "Well, if anything, at least I know what I'm doing when the mission's over."What's that?"Taking my entire collection of Ruri memorabilia and burning it." The Eversor lets out a sigh that sounded more like a week-old balloon pitifully deflating. "Just...everything."Now, come on. You're not well-versed in this sort of thing, but isn't that a bit excessive?"No." Sayaka shakes her head, mournfully. "It really isn't--"There's a knock on the door, stopping the action inside the suite cold. Both you and Sayaka turn towards it, you with a hand straying inside your jacket, the Eversor immediately aiming the camera. Deepthroat, very loudly, drops a heavy-looking piece of luggage on her foot as Ruri calls her to open the door - and the short, sweaty assistant limps the entire way, squeaking in pain with every other step.[1/2]
>>25620672>>25620635THESE.At the least, call someone whose in charge of the dossiers and bitch at them for a while for leaving out incredibly important information like this shit that is apparantly available freely on the goddamn internet.
>>25620680Srly man.QB himself said he had no problem killing off his potential warmaster. All he needs is the weapons. He can just make another magical girl resistant to the weapons. Or use kharn. Face it, we're not mami. We're expendable.Also crazy sword bitch fucked up normal assignments. These are warmaster-level assignments. Most highly paying assignments to very very influential people with alot of power at their hand.And you want to fuck with them.This is going beyond retardation, already.
>>25620690We get paid in grief seeds and guns, both of which we are perfectly capable of acquiring on our own, with a bit of effort.>>25620697>if we start acting like this every time something goes wrongThis isn't 'something going wrong'. This is 'the client is actively sabotaging the mission'. Small difference.
>all this talk about how much we are getting payedI was under the impression the Murderface doesn't really give a shit about money. Especially because she has more than she will ever need already from previous jobs.What she cares about is the universe not shitting on her.
>>25620708...It's room service. Apparently, this is the breakfast part of the four-day date. Two hotel attendants dutifully set up what looks to be quite a spread on the suite's dining table - and you narrow your eyes as they lay out four plates, for four people. One of the plates is already stacked with an foot-high stack of pancakes. The other plates are, predictably enough, filled with western breakfast food. Bacon, sausages, eggs, toast....Just how much does she know?"Ah, breakfast's up! Everyone, please gather around! Ah, Noriko-chan, please get the camera from Sayaka-chan so she can eat.""..R-right away, Miss Ruri..." Deepthroat's tremulous reply is faint as she hobbles towards Sayaka, sleeve-covered hands held out to receive the gadget. Sayaka gives her a small frown, before placing the camera in her hands, which is almost immediately dropped had it not been for the Eversor's quick reflexes."Hold onto it a bit more tightly, jeez," Sayaka mutters, and the extent in which you've damaged Sayaka just hit you right there. She didn't even bitch at Deepthroat (now Noriko). It was...yeah. Your partner in this case is severely compromised. You'll have to take her drinking after this.All four of you manage to sit around the table, in your respective places, with you facing the stack of pancakes. ...Well, of course it's for you. Otherwise the butter on the uppermost pancake wouldn't be styled into a desert eagle lying on its side, gently melting.This idol. This fucking idol."Ah, so, Sayaka-chan! How are you feeling right now?" Ruri is all smiles, all excitement, annoyingly chipper. "Hee, I know you want to know more about the anime Iori-chan and I were practicing lines for earlier, but sorry, that's still a secret! Right?" She winks at the camera, and you could swear stars and glitter exploded in the air as she did so.[2/3]
>>25620713This anon has a point, and we've already probably given ourselves a very, very bad image by taking our new authority as Warmaster and immediately telling our first big client to fuck herself because WE DO THINGS OUR WAY WE'RE THE WARMASTAR
>>25620719Iori, sitting beside you, is firmly keeping her gaze down on her food. Just poking at it with her fork, pushing stuff around on her plate. Apparently just as uncomfortable with things as you are."Ah, and everyone, please meet Chiaki-chan! She's the best Murder Mayumi cosplayer there is, bar none! She'll be performing up on stage with me in the concert, along with Sayaka-chan here!" Ruri finally turns from the camera to address you, while Deepthroat moves around for a better angle. "Ah, can you tell the fans a bit on how you've worked on looking like a very S, very violent, and maximum ero-ero magical girl?" Ruri smiles at you, widely and innocently, and you hear Iori gently choke on her orange juice.How do you respond?
>>25620716Ha.AHAHAHA.Who pays for the drinks, pills and instant ramen?For the fact, who pays for our very expensive housing? Which was specifically stated to be so far outside our paygrade to not be funny?

>>25620772Of god, do it.
>>25620725>>25620742I like it. Short, simple, clever.
>>25620725>She'll be performing up on stage with me in the concert, along with Sayaka-chan here!AhahahahaAHAHAHAHAHAHASO MANY KNEECAPS, SO LITTLE TIME
>>25620725[x] "It's what I do."Then we quickly try to end all discussion and move things towards getting Ruri alone to discuss mission details.Iori and Sallaka are entertaining enough to keep the viewers watching, right?
>>25620725if Ruri turns out to be a normal, VERY well informed, Idol with no weird shit going on besides this shit.we better be giving her a blue rose.
>>25620770I'd say "Yes, let's do this" but I think Midori's probably already signed them the rights, so I'm not sure she'd technically be able to stop it.
>>25620738Yeah, we could choose. And we chose this job, and you want to fuck it up.
Oh my god.Whatever we do, It's EXACTLY what the fans expect from extreme cosplayer.The question isCAN WE STEAL THE SHOW FOR OURSELVES EXCLUSIVELY?Like, there's a whole 10 minutes of Ruri in her own 6hours documentary movie?
>>25620803soon we shall SCRAPE IDOL FACE FROM OUR FINGERNAILS!!!captcha: onstime odell
>>25620788Not as much as you need for him to make it mandatory.THIS MISSION WAS OPTIONAL. HE WAS UNCOMFORTABLE WITH TAKING IT, BUT LEFT IT TO US TO REFUSE.We chose to be here, we can choose to leave.
>>25620725>"No. Now get that camera out of my face before I start shooting."Pretty much anything we say can be disregarded as us being in-character. Take refuge in audacity.
>>25620725[x] Give Ruri, then the camera, a look that says you're trying to hate them to death. You know. Play along.It's a shame we can't do the hair thing with a pony tail.
>>25620806Also 'Man I really hate one of the voice actors, could you just stop a big part of your non-magical girl career/life so I can be petty'.Midori is people too.
>>25620814No. No, we can't.
>>25620805...Yeah, this. There is still a chance, however slim, that this really is a normal(well, "normal") mission and it's really just a well-connected idol fucking with us.
>>25620805She's well-connected enough to hire Magical Girls; it's therefore not too much of a stretch that she could have paid off either QB or another Officio for information regarding Murderface.
>>25620725Well it took a lot of work, I even was lucky enough to get into contact with the author once or twice to really nail down how I should carry myself and speak.Other than that a few things worked to my advantage like being the right height and being able to look angry enough
>>25620806Oh that's easy. She just tells us who she signed it off to, then we go kill them and any descendants. Suddenly nobody owns the rights so nobody can produce it, what a shame.
>>25620820Actually we can.The locks by the side were left there for a reason.
>>25620734I am getting more and more tempted by the minute.It's time to start playing this up. Lets have some fun, lets fuck things up so much even Sayaka will be forced to enjoy the carnage.[x] Muder Mayumi Experience
>>25620725I like >>25620819.
>>25620821I wonder if she gets royalties from all the merchandise her Doujinshi is spawning. It'd suck if she already sold the rights.
>>25620725"Miss Ruri, you seem to have things mistaken. You have hired me for bodyguard services. I am not, going to and never will, perform on any stage with you. Now get that fucking camera out of my face before I break it."
>>25620820You actually can hairflip a high ponytail decently well if your hair is long enough. I just did mine right now.
>>25620821And we're not?Midori knows well that this whole thing is steadily destroying our mental health.She'd do It no problem. She's already troubled by It
>>25620725[x] "Huh. And here I thought an idol would know how it is to have an overeager fan making porn of you. Consider me surprised."
>>25620839I like this. This is past the point of cordiality, this is not a trap, this is just bad news.
Decu?Good luck making sense of this mess.
>>25620822Why not? Give me a reason. I've stated mine, multiple times, and you've said nothing but 'you're wrong' in response.
>>25620734Not going to lie. The option never looked so tempting. But I'm afraid that'll have to wait until we're off camera.Perhaps after the camera is turned off when Ruri goes to the bathroom we tell Iori to turn it back on briefly in a few minutes to fill everyone in watching it that an "unexpected situation arose" and the rest of the livestream will be canceled.
>>25620814Technically true, we could. We could let Sayaka suffer here on our behalf.Ruri either is a golden weapons holder, or managed to get the almost-rape video of Iori (which is where she saw the golden deagle of course). We can get out of here quite easily by just faking a phone call and saying "Ah, a family emergency came up", then just stake out the place OUTSIDE the roomLater on we can tell Kyubey Sayaka was able to handle client interaction while we took a more outer aspect of the job.
>>25620725>I didn't. I'm a personal friend of the author. She based the character on me. The magical girl parts... eh, that's just her. Let's see if we can blow her mind out the back of her head.
>>25620738And once we take those jobs we are bound to do themLike a fucking contract would goHOLY FUCK THAT IS A MASSIVE STRETCH
>>25620839This is both professional and threatening.Do it.
>>25620853>Giving away that we're the actual source material rather than just a damn good cosplayerfullretard.jpg
>>25620846We already granted her our permission. And a japanese artist will always want their own show. This is her best chance for a work of hers to be shown to the world.I'd not deny her hard work.

>>25620863Iori told us she asked all about us when she was buddying up to herWe carried the golden desert eagle quite often in Iori's presenceNothing Ruri has done has thus far been anything that she couldn't have planned using information she took from Iori
>>25620809>camera focuses on Ruri>Chiaki doing something incredibly distracting in the background>each and every scene ever
>>25620794We need to blow off some steam,I'd argue for shooting the camera itself, but, equipment and all.Shouldn't dignify that question with a spoken response.We really need to call coobs, it's one thing to stick to the mission, but this can really blow our cover in future missions.It'd be funny though if Chiaki had a secret cult following for her "cosplay" and we never noticed though
>>25620862>But I'm afraid that'll have to wait until we're off camera.Why would you want our glorious ascent to the Blessed Lady's side to not be caught on film?
>>25620879You don't want to see her face go blank for several minutes while she tries to process that?You disappoint me. Your inner troll is dead.
>>25620839I like this, but we should probably throw in a mention about "playing along with the cosplay stuff" or something to that effect, for the benefit of the webcast audience.
>>25620883>Chiaki is polishing a gun and staring very threateningly at the camera
>>25620820>>25620829>>25620845> [x] Give Ruri, then the camera, a look that says you're trying to hate them to death. You know. Play along.> [X] "Miss Ruri, you seem to have things mistaken.

>>25620830[x] Lets do this.
>>25620839I approve of this. I hate to be too blunt, but shit's getting out of hand. We need to tell that chick the score or she isn't going to stop.
>>25620884When we next get some downtime, we should google "Murder Mayumi cosplay" and see how many pics there are of us.

[x] "I get into the mind of character that Green-Green created. It's not always easy, because sometimes it feels like there's four of us, but at least three can agree on the pancakes. The voice required a lot of practice."Calling it now: The concert day will be a front for one epic battle Ruri will have set up with herself as the heroine and us as the monster.
>>25620891Good idea.>>25620725"Miss Ruri, you seem to have things mistaken. You have hired me for bodyguard services. I am not, going to and never will, perform on any stage with you. I'm playing along with this cosplay shit, but that is the very limit of my patience."
>>25620885Because we don't need proof going global that coobs needed to retire his Warmaster a few days after promoting her.
>>25620814>HE WAS UNCOMFORTABLE WITH TAKING IT, BUT LEFT IT TO US TO REFUSE.I went back through the archives, and could find no mention of QB being uncomfortable with the request. He didn't even show any concern expect that we make sure that we don't be late and that we don't keep the clients waiting too long.
>>25620899>>25620830I'd mud-er, if you know what I mean
>>25620909ThiiiiiisIt answers with a lot of truth but nothing that actually gives us a clue that we are really a magical girl
>>25620922Not really, no.
>>25620908>CHANGING THE CONDITIONS OF THE CONTRACT AFTERWARDS IS NOT LEGALNeither is contracting for the death of another person, breaking into and destroying a building, kidnapping, extortion, or any number of other contracts we take. Legality has nothing to do with it.
>>25620918Pretty sure the world's getting reset once we fix Pinky. That's what happened last time.
Alright, that's it for this thread! Thread resumes tomorrow with the most voted action!Thank you for your participation, feedback is always appreciated! I don't think there are any writeups today, so questions answered before I go to bed!
>>25620931Changing the terms of a contract with a company of assassins for hire has worse repercussions than legal issues, you know.
>>25620922Your innuendo is like Icarus anon. Currently impersonating the hindenburg.
Can someone be this angry retarded?Am I the only one thinking we're dealing with a troll and should just ignore? It's kinda ruining tonight.
A thought:People watching the livestream are expecting Chiaki to act like Murder Mayumi and to generally not steal the show from Ruri. Nor does Ruri expect anything but this show to go the way she dictated so she can milk all the publicity this is worth and also establish her power over those participating.Instead of going along with the role, what would happen if Chiaki instead acted vastly out of character and started stealing the show away from Ruri? Like instead of acting all growly and stoic, Chiaki started channeling Moemura Mode x 1000 (or going full Brian Blessed)? While Ruri's fans are all obsessed with her, there's something to be said with exploiting the demographic which may certainly be into ~moe stuff, or just upstaging the entire thing.
>>25620943Are you enjoying all these red herrings you are dropping?
>>25620948I'm advocating counter-trolling.
>>25620934While this might be handy... Let's please not play as if this is a guarantee.
>>25620943THATS WAY TOO EARLY DECUUUU
>>25620954What red herrings? :'D
>>25620839This.We do NOT play along with this spoiled little girls bullshit.
>>25620950I would like to try this.Transform into moemura infront of the camera? Then watch the stunned faces around the table.
>>25620943Are you prepared for the monumental disaster this entire mission may go in at any moment? All it might take is one good round of voting to wind up in bloodshed.
>>25620943Decu, did you only gave summaries of each of the three assignment letters that QB gave us back in his office, or were the letters really that terse?As in, did the Escort Mission actually say that we are to "escort" Ruri, show her a good time and be her arm-candy as well as her bodyguard for the 4 days? What exactly were the parameters of the mission?
>>25620950I don't think Chiaki's even capable of that. Trying to act "out of character" is pretty damn difficult - she can barely open up in front of her friends, trying to do so in front of everyone would just make her want to start shooting until there's nothing else to shoot.
>>25620839She didn't actually hire us for body guarding she hired us for "escort"The face that we mistook the contract just means we are going to be rudely surprised when "oh no you see here is the contract I signed with Mr Kyuubey see?"
>>25620725[x] "No."[x] Shoot the camera.I thinks its finally time to do that and while the camera is off we need to explain some shit to Ruri. And people, please stop acting retarded or pretending that QB will do this or that because we tell her off. There is not fucking one Private Security Agency that would bend over for their client because of some of his whims. Just because you were hired a private security doesn`t mean that your client can order you around. Its quite, different, really usually those guys are who decide what the client can and can`t do.Your security > Your comfort.
>>25620943How broken is sayaka?
>>25620987It might be out of character but goddamn it would be hilarious if we could pull this off
>>25620992THIS, jesus christ.We're here to protect her, not be her fucking pet.
>>25620943that was quite early,http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestArchive is up, have a good evening gentlemen.
>>25620992Read the description. We were hired as fuckslut. Not bodyguard.
>>25621000Might be one of the only things we could do that would actually throw Ruri for a loop. I don't think anyone other than Midori and Pinky know about Moemura, so that'd come completely out of left field.
>>25620725>"Ah, can you tell the fans a bit on how you've worked on looking like a very S, very violent, and maximum ero-ero magical girl?"Answer by pretending you're doing that thing with your tongue.
>>25620987It might be possible if she can remember moemura's memories. There must be an inner moemura. Remember that flashback in siberia after the Op and before we entered nightmare world?It's certainly worth a shot.
Okay so due to various events that have occurred in my life (specifically 'being lied to by an authority figure' and 'appearing on camera despite being told I would not' and no the two are not related but the effect is compounded and yes those are just summaries of what actually occurred) I won't be able to follow this quest until either a. the cameras are gone or b. Ruri gets her shit slapped.I'd like to ask you guys to please keep Iori alive and Pinky placated as much as possible.
But seriously>shoot the camera>insist that protecting Ruri from harm includes yourself>sit in the corner and wait for a new camera>should It ever point at you, repeat step oneTraining dogs is all about repetition
>>25621009>Second Envelope: Escort Mission. One of the most popular idols currently in circulation today, Kirishima Ruri, requires a Magical Girl escort for her weekend concert in Mitakihara. No danger seems imminent, but she is specifically asking to 'have a good time' with the Warmaster of the Ninth.
>>25620992How about no.>>25621017You too. no.
>>25620992No we don't need to do thisWe need to fucking man up and do this job without acting like a bunch of spoiled cunts crying because we can't play how we want toWe took this job, we follow the rules. We don't like it then well that is just too fucking bad because we live with the consequences of taking jobs without reading them thoroughly
>>25620986Actually, a little bit of both! It's what Chiaki got from them, and how she chose to interpret them. You can have Chiaki call Kyuubey to verify if you want!>>25620984Hahaha, well, I try to prepare for everything! Every vote counts! Chiaki's fate and everyone else is in the players' hands, first and foremost.
>>25621009Not even that. We were hired under some pretty fucking vague terms.
>>25621000It'd be fun to pull of something like thishttp://youtu.be/RzMEpbL3v3Y?t=20sWishful thinking though
>>25620948It seems to me that there are a considerable amount of people (or a smaller number of very argumentative people) whose approach seems to be "I am the Warmaster, and you will OBEY ME. This is all beneath me! ALL OF YOU SHALL! SHOW!! THE PROPER RESPECT!!".I partially agree, but sometimes I think that course of action would show that Chiaki has let the position get to her head. I'd be more in favor of beating Ruri at her own game, or subtly sabotaging the camera or somesuch. Ruri is probably the Queen Bitch of all the idols, who probably deal with the vicious politicking and rumormongering and mudslinging that celebrities deal with on a daily basis. Even moreso in what appears to be a cut-throat industry. She isn't going to be cowed or truly intimidated by any displays that Chiaki shows. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised at all if she's planned for this sort of outburst of anger/RESPECT MUH AUTHORITAH that these participants are advocating.We're going to either have to beat her at her own game, or find some way to go around it.
>>25621009Because Kyuubey would totally whore out his Warmaster without her knowledge.
Once again: Why not fake needing to go the bathroom, call QB and ask what the hell is going on here?
>>25621054No, he whored us out and we accepted.
>>25621054Why are you even doubting that?
>>25621049Yes.I say plan Moemura is A Go.Throw everyone in a loop.
>>25621049Dude, we wouldn't be putting up with this shit even if we weren't warmaster.In fact I'd say that the position is stopping us from just flat out getting violent.
>>25620943Is Ruri a robot?
>>25621016Ah, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to do something like that...I hope you'll be able to rejoin us sometime!
>>25621028So FLESH OF THE FALLEN ANGELS is still on the table?If I didn't think it would get Iori killed or Sayaka pissed at us I would do it.
I don't think Decu's going to STOP us from doing monumentally stupid shit, but it's going to have consequences.
>>25621057Really should be on our to-do list. Check whether all this 24-hour camera and going on stage shit is actually getting pulled out of nowhere, or if we were just retards and didn't read the mission file thoroughly enough.
>>25621069The problem with plan Moemura is that even though she used to be us, and she might still be in there somewhere, it might not be feasible to actually tap into that. Hell, even normal anime Homura was so fundamentally broken I'm not sure she could have acted much like her former self, and we're two or three levels past that now.
>>25621028Wait wait wait. The information YOU, the DM, gave US, the players, was incomplete? Why would you do that? Why would you think that to be a good idea?>>25621049>"I am the Warmaster, and you will OBEY ME. This is all beneath me! ALL OF YOU SHALL! SHOW!! THE PROPER RESPECT!!".Yeah. No. That is not what I am saying at all. Try something more like "I am the Warmaster, and I have had enough of this shit. I'm out.">>25621060No fuck you that is not what I agreed to. I agreed to 'escort with a side of REMOVE YOUR HANDS FROM MY PERSON BEFORE I REMOVE THEM FROM YOURS.'
>>25621086It technically does conform to the mission parameters given in the dossier.Especially if this is her idea of a good time.
>>25621057Because there are too many retards eager to turn this into an erp quest for It to get passed.
>>25621086>or if we were just retards and didn't read the mission file thoroughly enough.Well, we never asked for clarifications about the mission or read what exactly the contract meant by "having a good time", so I think it's the latter.
>>25621099Well you agreed to that.Too bad. You got more than you bargained for. So suck it up and go along with it. Be professional, finish the damn mission without incident.
>>25621046Like I said, pretty vague. We can sit in the corner and brood, act as a proper body guard, fuck shit up, get drunk, have sex with everyone in the room, act like an idol ourselves, or any combination of the above and many other options and still be within the bounds of our contract. People seem to be under the impression that we have strict limitations here, when we simply do not.
>>25621103Are you the same guy who actually called someone a Rurifag?Holy hell, there is no way anyone knows enough about Ruri or likes Ruri enough yet to be trying to wrangle a "waifu" end with her. Just, what?
>>25621103I'm sorry, please stop pulling shit out of your ass.
>>25621103Who's even doing that lately...? We had like two votes for doing the tongue thing and a lot of votes for something just shy of 'shoot her in the fucking face'.
>>25621028>Not giving the players accurate information on what is required from the jobWHAT
>>25621099Er, well, I thought it was clear. But just to confirm it, the definition of 'escort' is not in the negotiable affection context, but security detail.As for the good time part, I'll leave that up to interpretation.Sorry for the confusion! (I didn't think it would be misinterpreted, sorry!)
>>25621110>So suck it up and go along with it.No. Fuck you. You can vote for whatever you want, but I'm voting for 'fuck this mission this is bullshit' every chance I get.YOU suck THAT up and deal with.
>>25621119Decu it is accurate enough. Escort does have dual connotations and I took as abit of both.I was expecting something like this, already. Just not so many attempts to bait chiaki.
>>25621103"People choosing to be civil instead of BOW DOWN TO MY GRIMDARK = waifu fags" hasn't been uttered in a while, I was wondering when that strawman argument was going to rear it's ugly head again.
>>25621123Sure. Do what you wish.
>>25621110See>>25621119t is NOT what we signed up for you retard.
>>25621119Is alright. Most ,if not all, of us guessed it was that.
>>25621085Honestly, it seems things go our way better when we are fucking things up as opposed to trying to make things turn out "good." Too many good things happened in the last few updates, so karma had to play its part and is giving us hell.I say we fuck things up. Play to our strength.
>>25621119>the definition of 'escort' is not in the negotiable affection context, but security detail.So we were hired as a bodyguard.>As for the good time part, I'll leave that up to interpretation.So there was an expectation that our affections were also being negotiated for, on top of security detail.Seems pretty clear.
>>25621135But we did sign up for it. Caveat emptor and all that.
>>25621135>As for the good time part, I'll leave that up to interpretation.Are you even reading what you are quoting?
>>25621123That's totally within your rights, but could you try to do it a little more quietly? Because you're really really obnoxious when you throw thread-long tantrums.
>>25621135Seem pretty clear to me.Abit of both.
>>25621155Across multiple threads.You can recognise that specific spewing of fuck ladden sentences.
>>25621140>Honestly, it seems things go our way better when we are fucking things upUsing Muramasa during the fight against the bears in Siberia, getting Jyubei to detonate a Soulgem in our face, Midori going "Get Fucked" and then dying. Seems more that we only barely managed effective damage control than have things go our way.
>>25621119Oh no, that bit I got. I'm more concerned with your statement that what is actually written on the contract may not match what you told us was written.Had that happen to me once before. Results were really fucking unpleasant.
>>25620839I would, uh, just quickly like to point out that this is an option that both encompasses civility and 'Give me the respect I deserve as a professional'Y'know.Its just a thing thats there and all.So maybe we can stop arguing now...?
>>25621135What we signed up for is a job that asked for the warmaster specifically. I think we would have taken that job no matter what it entailed. Had this specific job not asked for the warmaster, I would bet any amount of money that we would have given it to someone else and stuck to the oil rig mission.Quit bitching and just roll with it.
>>25621175yea, chiaki's IC interpretation of the contract, and what the contract is are 2 very different things, would help alot to quite peoples bitching if we knew the latter as well as the former
>>25620943Thanks again Deculture, great quest.Might I be right in thinking that if we had taken the ticket we'd of been filming Rumi esentially miming fucking Lori... as us?By which I mean, who's was playing what role in the anime? It shounded like Rumi was playing us and Lori was Green.Also, just encase it isn't obvious to everyone: there's a 100% chance that Rumi is just fucking with us because she hates us or some shit.
>>25621099>The information YOU, the DM, gave US, the players, was incomplete? Why would you do that? Why would you think that to be a good idea?Because even the best of players will be influenced by out-of-character information, and if you want players to play in-character it's most effective to give them only what is known in-character?Do you get mad at the DM for not telling you what you didn't see when you fail a spot check? It's the same basic idea -- Decu told us what Chiaki took away from the files, not the full actual contents. It's a perfectly reasonable method ensuring more immersive in-character play.
>>25621177I'm not bitching.I'm saying that passively going along with this shiti ot in our contract.
>>25621176Good anon, I'm afraid that might not be an option since a select few have chosen to vigorously attempt to torpedo any attempt at completing this mission in a non-Principal harming manner.Your attempts, however futile, are commendable and appreciated.
>>25621176I'm okay with it, but only if it's said like, in the few moments that we'll have when the webstream is turned off. I don't want to declare to the entire world that we are a bodyguard, and that's our job. Of course, it might be construed as us acting in-character as Murder Mayumi, but I'd rather not have to deal with any complaints from QB or the Officio's media team.
>>25621192Actually this is probably the option that won.
Wait.What are we actually arguing about here?I think more than a few people might be confused here.
>>25621172If I didn't think Murderface somewhat enjoyed murder and chaos I would agree with you.If the options are put up with and Idols bullshit for 4 days or fight some intergalactic demons that will probably destroy a few of our limbs in the process. I would go for the ladder. At lest after we mop up the demons we know we have accomplished something.
>>25621203I saw that, yes.I specifically meant the 'stop arguing' bit.My apologies if I confused you.
Requesting vote count!
>>25621206I think it's about whether her name is Runi or Rumi. Might be wrong.
>>25621206I think we've long past the point of arguing ABOUT something, and instead now we're just arguing.
>>25621217Yeah, we need a vote count. This is rather important.
>>25621215Oh, no, no worries. I didn't read into it much, I just wanted to give the poor reasonable people here some hope amidst the intermittent shitstorms.
>>25621183This is not out-of-character information. This is a series of words, written in a language our character is fluent in, on a piece of paper held in our character's hands.Being told it says one thing when it really says another is not fucking acceptable, mostly because we have no way of knowing the two things are different.It is not a question of immersion, because Murderface would read the goddamn contract, not just skim it and say 'yeah sure whatever'.
>>25621214>I would go for the ladder.We Jackie Chiaki now.
The parliament of Matsuda has come to order.First items of business: You shut up; No, you shut up; you're stupid and a (insert name here)-fag; no, YOU are a (different name)-fag...
>>25621229> Murderface would read the goddamn contract, not just skim it and say 'yeah sure whatever'.Hahahaha.
>>25621229I'm sorry but bwahahahaha.Murderface would do exactly that.
>>25621183Chiaki might not be a complete utter genius, but she's still someone who shadowruns for a living. Hell, even when a "normal" magical girl she set up a deathtrap that could have killed a large tank division and planned out everything meticulously. Being able to read a damn mission briefing correctly shouldn't be *that* hard.Even if Chiaki fucked up reading it, though, that doesn't mean we'll be remotely detonated because a client cries that we didn't fingerfuck her on-camera. As long as Ruri survives to pay up, QB's not going to give a shit. And if Ruri doesn't survive that's either going to be because she's the enemy or we had bigger problems, so we don't give a fuck then either.
>>25621237>>25621240Her presence was requested by rank. That is odd enough for her to investigate closer.If it were Kharn, sure. Not Murderface.
>>25621217>>25621226According to my messy count as of 20 minutes past the last content post:1 FOFA5 "It's natural."1 Growl.1 Tongue thing.1 "I had a good teacher."3 Don't say a word. Just eat.3 "I get into the mind of character that Green-Green created. It's not always easy, because sometimes it feels like there's four of us, but at least three can agree on the pancakes. The voice required a lot of practice."4 Try to hate them into a fine mist.2 "Classified information."1 Get different, non-poisoned food.3 "Get that camera off of me before I shoot it."1 "It was a struggle at first, but soon everything just feel into place. It feels like Murder Mayumi was made for me"1 Shoot the chair leg out from under the table.1 Move discussion toward discussing the mission while Sayaka and Iori entertain the viewers.2 Murder Mayumi Experience. (Most of the above, probably.)6 "Miss Ruri, you seem to have things mistaken. You have hired me for bodyguard services. I am not, going to and never will, perform on any stage with you. I'm playing along with this cosplay shit, but that is the very limit of my patience."1 vote specifically for not doing the thing right above this1 "Huh. And here I thought an idol would know how it is to have an overeager fan making porn of you. Consider me surprised."1 "I didn't. I'm a personal friend of the author. She based the character on me. The magical girl parts... eh, that's just her."1 Hair-flip.
>>25621234>IT BEGINSNo, it ends. Thread over.God damn it though, I can't believe I forgot about that.
>>25621229That is the funniest thing I have heard all threadMurderface would only ask who she is allowed to kill and who she isn't for a given mission at bestAnd the not asking for more detail is entirely our faultNow we are just reaping the rewards
>>25621265>And the not asking for more detailBecause we thought we HAD all the details.
>>25621252THIS, jesus christ.Anyone who's saying that someone who does this shit for a living would NOT KNOW WHAT SHES SUPPOSED TO BE DOING ON A MISSION has serious fucking brain problems.
>>25621276Have you considered the possibility that most of the details were supposed to be handled by Ruri's security agency, and that we were mostly being hired as high-power personnel to be used (mostly) as they saw fit?
>>25621256Unfortunately that is not the case.As per knowledge as told by the 10th Dickbutt, information on warmasters is posted publicly. Whether this is only restricted to warmasters + Incubators or includes a select circle of Top Clients is still unknown.What we also know is that Iori had been talking to Ruri about us for quite some time. It is possible that she might have had knowledge about Chiaki as being the next warmaster and thus specifically requested for her.Of course this is but one interpretation of the circumstances.
>>25621252Actually she doesn't't shadowrun for a livingMurderface was like a wild animal more than a competent anythingThis was shown many many times before the operationThe most information we ever went looking for in regards to a mission was Kirika and that was mainly "what are her strengths, what can we use to make killing her easier"
>>25621229Spoken like someone who's never overlooked/misread something before.It is out-of-character information, because after having read the contract the only information available to Murderface is what she took away from it, not the actual words itself. If Decu gave us the full wording, then we as players might take away something different than Murderface would in-character, which would influence our decisions.
>>25621257hey, it's technically a plurality even with just 15% of the total vote!
>>25621257The >"Miss Ruri, you seem to have things mistaken. You have hired me for bodyguard services. I am not, going to and never will, perform on any stage with you. Now get that fucking camera out of my face before I break it."optionDoesn't have the [x]
>>25621280Considering that most of her mission were with Kharn, theres likely only one thing required on her missions.Loads of killing.
>>25621285This is pretty much how I saw it. It's just that one guy who seems to be pissed that "WE DIDN'T HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION!"Read between the lines man, and chill out.
>>25621257See, if Decu QMs anything like I do, he'll condense these down into a few general common categories and pick the details within that category based on a synthesis of the suggestions/whatever strikes his fancy.In which case, the overwhelming weight of votes is for something to the effect of a brusque dismissal of the question.
>>25621313I can't quite remember, why did Kharn step down from being Warmaster again?
>>25621308I think Decu relaxes that requirement for writeins. Half of the previous writeins would have failed, then.
>>25621308Oh fuck off, I'm posting from a bloody tablet here.One thats a goddamn pain in the ass to write on, too.
>>25621308Oh snap, son.
>>25621295Still not the biggest vote clusterfuck of the thread, but I don't save results for longer than the next post.>>25621308Stow your autisms HH. Stow them.
>>25621326We were never told.Likely its due to the death of Malal and her squad and WalsdssdgdsIcannotspellthatdamnthing.
>>25621285Except that is the opposite of what happened. We're being used a toy for an idol's whims.At the very best, there is no threat. Slightly less than best, Ruri herself is the threat. At worst, every single person in that stadium is going to be a threat, including Sayaka, Iori, and Spaghetti-chan.>>25621326Because she went full Witch and murdered all the extremely valuable Culexus.
>>25621257Quite a number of those don't even link back to the content post or have an [x].It's not that hard to do, and it makes actual votes easier to count than discussion posts or go hunting for a post that's linked as a second.
What I'm worried about is the disturbing amount of details that Ruri knows about Chiaki. MMxMM is reasonable.Hotel setup is suspicious, but still reasonable. Knowing about pancakes could be coincidence or simply seeing Matsuda at a western-style breakfast restaurant, but still registers as pretty suspicious.Knowing about shooting legs off is very suspicious.Knowing about the Deagle gives off at least 2 Shadowruns.Though she is *just* an idol, she is also rich and influential and LOVES to throw her weight around. I have a suspicious feeling that she may be the one behind hiring/funding those Otaku who videotaped and orchestrated Yayoi's internet debut, as well as those who attempted the same thing on Iori.All it would take is one of them hanging back to observe (or another camera installed somewhere) to know about Leg-shooting and Golden Deagle.
>>25621341I don't think she murdered them, I get the feeling that the entire squad was expended to bring her back when she witched out.
>>25621322Yeah he's probably less OCD about it than I am, but a lot of the time it's specific questions or phrases with specific expected results.Also no seriously stow the autisms about the [x]s. People would get really pissed off if an overwhelming vote lost because of a lack of [x]s and we don't need another Thread 98 or whatever it was.
>>25621288>Actually she doesn't't shadowrun for a livingGoddammit. Chiaki asked for files. We said "check the background". We grilled Iori for information.Chiaki did the damn research.
>>25621350Oh lord.Shes out for revenge.
>>25621329I am posting from a tablet tooEvery post I made for votes had a [X]Decu did put the rules in because it was supposed to make things clearer for him as well as us
>>25621350Probably got a point - and yeah, at this point it's obvious she's involved with MG things, but only very probable that she's antagonistic.
>>25621338Walpurgisnacht. It's an actual thing.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walpurgisnacht
Also I wanna point out the butter deagle could just be butter shaped like a gun. You know. For the person whose specialty is guns.A deagle is pretty much what someone not versed in guns would think of when they hear 'gun', as far as I see it.
>>25621361But that's exactly why the [x] exists. If people don't use it it is their damn own fault for being ignored.
>>25621361>Also no seriously stow the autisms about the [x]sNo, I will not.This is one of the things specifically requested to make vote counting both easier and more accurate, and to prevent the miscounting that happened.
>>25621350The answer is obviousRuri has a case of "deep love"
>>25621383Does your tablet 'lock' you onto words you're typing and have the test line thingy (| <- this thing) randomly jump around fucking everywhere?Sony Tablet S. Not even once.
>>25621350Agreed that something is off, she knows too much.The get her off balance route is thus the best solution. She'll be more likely to reveal stuff when shes not in complete control.
>>25621175Hello, Decu, gonna answer this or what?
Since Iori is here, It's probably her recommendation that got Chiaki the contract, so all Ruri knows about Chiaki is from Iori. The contract was set purposely vague to give us/them a little leeway for 'fun' stuff (Idol shenanigans). Poor Sayaka, Chiaki should note to tell her to sell the stuff instead of destroying it like that Aya Hirano fan did. Get a pure breed dog from the money. (Dog debate go!).
>>25621416Call Kyubey, have him repeat the contract verbatim.
>>25621374Possible. But given her propensity for antagonizing other idols and perhaps narcissistic personality (this is kind of stretching the extrapolation from her actions here), it could be more likely that she's using this to crush Iori while getting her kicks over manipulating Chiaki. She wants to feel like she's in control here, and has spared no expense in getting information about Chiaki and Iori's relationship. While eldritch horrors and rogue meguca powered by eldritch gilded weaponry are certainly dangerous... there's also something to be said from a clever/driven/cunning individual who has ridiculous amounts of money, PR, and connections.
>>25621392...which is fine and good until half the thread's votes are ignored over it and we get another shitstorm. I've been counting votes in threads since that happened and I'm positive it would have made a difference before, by fucking over a solid majority of voters. And then they would shit themselves.Because that's what people on /tg/ do. Shit themselves. So we have people who shit because votes don't have [x] and people who forget the [x] that will shit just as violently when their vote isn't counted.Stop being a person that will shit. This isn't a dog training school and people will not just be trained into going 'oops i fucked up guess i learned my lesson' when their votes suddenly don't count, although it's pretty lame of people not to do the basic thing that makes votes easier to count. Just [x]. remind other people to [x], and move on.Whew. Got that out of my system. Neat.
>>25621432I don't like it but it might be necessary for Chiaki to blow Ruri off.
>>25621433That doesnt mean shes not out for revenge.As you said shes amazingly hostile to her showbiz rivals. If she was the one that hired those rapists and we ruined that...
>>25621445>Just [x]. remind other people to [x], and move on.Except that you seem to get riled up whenever we DO remind people that they need to put an [x] on their posts for their vote to count. You're doing the exact same thing that you say you're against.
>>25621391Not to mention, it'd take an unreal amount of skill to be able to sculpt butter with the proper amount of detail to make it distinguishable as a specific type of handgun. To say nothing of the fact that said detail would start melting away as soon as you put it on top of a stack of hot pancakes.Decu's messing with us by stating in-character interpretations as fact again. Our shadowruns are bleeding into Chiaki's perceptions.
>>25621457Eh, it's probably a little of both. Revenge plus fascination over something new that she must absolutely must have. Probably with some other ulterior motives that aren't readily apparent right now.
>>25621463No, I get riled up when people start yelling 'DIDN'T HAVE [x] DOESN'T COUNT'. And this is the first time I've even said anything about it.
>>25621433>ridiculous amounts of money, PR, and connections.None of those things will help a bullet in the head. Which is exactly what she'd get if she tried to blackmail ANY warmaster.>>25621466Or Pinky did it.
>>25621350>>25621374>>25621389Iori told us that Ruri got all sorts of intel while buddying up to herNothing Ruri has said or done is something that could not have come from Iori>>25621407Mine doesn't do that as badly but it does do it to a degreeiPads aren't bad but they are still annoying at times
[x] Moemura plan go!Follow Noriko example if can't remember how Moemura was in the past.This will revolutionize the MMxMM fanbase!
>>25621480Dude voting has been over for SO long.
>>25621466Excellent point, anon.I will taking the 'unreliable narrator' filter from this point on.
>>25621308>>25621345>>25621383>>25621392>>25621396These are what you consider yelling?No, you're the one who's making a big mess out of this.
>>25621466>>25621502Also don't forget about the gunshot at her apartment. Which later turned out to not really be a gunshot, but Mamis (and Midoris).
>>25621508Yelling is a bad word for it, you're right. But it's not exactly kosher to start painting someone as if they constantly bring up an issue, either, is it?Either way, it's a really pedantic attitude that half the time seems to be used for and I wish people would drop it and grow up.
>>25621515er, half the time seems to be used for 'my choice didn't win BUT THEIR VOTES DIDN'T COUNT'
>>25621513Depending on acoustics and a lack of experience with wine corkings, mistaking it for a gunshot is actually pretty reasonable.It got... whoever it was who was with us at the time as well. I don't remember for some reason Pinky please get out of my head.
>>25621538Wasn't her name Kumadora?
>>25621548Either way, she's Kumadorable
>>25621515>>25621522That's just your interpretation, which doesn't really have any bearing on the problem.This is a measure put in place to prevent the miscounting that happened. If we don't stick by it, then what's the point of even having it?We'd be right back in the same situation as before (though at least we'll have a time limit), and the same problem could happen.
>>25621544>>25621548That seems reasonable.
>>25621566We should encourage it but not be inflexible in enforcing it.Stop being autistic about it.
>>25621175>>25621416I'll confirm this again, what the assignment reads and what Chiaki interpreted from it is pretty much in line with each other. The 'good time' is verbatim from what the assignment reads.
>>25621566see>>25621572Thank you for putting this more concisely than I apparently can.>>25621508Oh, and half of these are polite reminders, and HH's was clearly a joke, and I was gently teasing him about it. These aren't the problem, it's when you start getting aggressive and asserting that half the thread's votes don't count that it becomes a problem.
>>25621572That, unfortunately, is completely at the purview of decu and if he vacillates, it causes more screaming and yelling.
>>25621538>mistaking it for a gunshot is actually pretty reasonable.As some who has actually been in more indoor firefights than I would like to have been in, it is not 'pretty reasonable', it is very fucking different.
Everybody just needs to calm down, and stop acting like pic related.
>>25621579>>25621572Then what's the cutoff? Why should some votes count but not others if they don't conform to the guidelines? What makes one post worth a vote and not another if they both don't have an [x] and a link back to the content post?You're basically arguing to allow for a hanging chaff situation.
>>25621604But we're not really arguing, just having a civil disagreement. In stark contrast to the shitstorm that was earlier when the quest was active.
>>25621604WE'VE FOUND OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO SAYAKA'S BITCHINESSSAYAKA BESTOWED IT UPON US, /TG/
Hang on... Where's Iori's security team that Mami said she would arrange for?
>>25621577Okay thanks. I was actually more worried about information being left out but it seems that wasn't the case.Sorry for doubting you, man.>>25621588This wasn't a firefight. This was behind a closed door at an unspecified distance. You're telling me that someone who has likely never heard champagne being corked has absolutely no chance of confusing it with, say, a low calibre pistol?>>25621612Ruri told them to go home, calling it now.
>>25621611And then /tg/ was Sayaka.I'm my own waifu? What?
>>25621606I think the point with the [x] is that it's not like the vote is invalid without it, but you're not allowed to complain if your no-[x] vote gets overlooked as a simple mistake. It's not so much "votes without an [x] only count when Decu feels like it", but rather "votes without an [x] count so long as Decu notices them, and if he doesn't see them then too bad, should've marked them with an [x]".Seeing as that's the whole point of the [x] in the first place -- to make votes easier to sift out from the general chatter.
>>25621606Here's how I see it: If it's a vote for something it's counted as a vote. I use context to determine whether something is a vote, and almost all of them either link back to the original post or link to another vote which is easy to read. It's not actually very hard to do. Takes at worst ten minutes, if everything's a write-in and people's opinions are scattered.>>25621627This anon has the right of it.
>>25621620>You're telling me that someone who has likely never heard champagne being corked has absolutely no chance of confusing it with, say, a low calibre pistol?But this person has a rather large amount of experience with firearms, so no, they would not confuse the two.There is a very large difference between a gunshot and a cork going off, not the volume, but the length of the sound, the intensity and 'impact' if you will.If it was someone who had never experienced either? it would be understandable, but not really for chiaki
>>25621627>"votes without an [x] count so long as Decu notices them, and if he doesn't see them then too bad, should've marked them with an [x]"Okay, that's one way to see it. But it's kind of different from the actual thing Decu posted:>[Voting ends in 20 minutes. Only [x] marked votes will be counted.]
>>25621645Mmm, that is kind of a miscommunication. But knowing Decu, he doesn't want any more huge shitstorms to erupt because of how he counted votes, so he probably tries to accommodate everyone anyway. He's a marshmallow like that.If you're still reading this Decu I mean that in the nicest way.
>>25621637You can use whatever system you want in your own quest, but since we're in Decu's, it makes more sense to work within his.If you want him to change it, fine, talk with him to change it. That's your right.But he very clearly and explicitly posted how he wanted it done, so why are you saying that he should do it differently from the way he said he would do it, without an update on how he does it?
>>25621642It WAS stated that she didn't recognise the model. And, once again, behind a closed door, likely quite a heavy one.And also once again, it got Kumatoradora too.>>25621663>marshmallowJust marshmallow, not moon pie?
So, from all of this, should we now operate under the assumption that Chiaki is an unreliable narrator? And if all of Ruri's actions thus far fall within the parameters of the contract when we tell QB, and he tells us to continue without making waves, would that be enough to make Chiaki begin reading orders more carefully and thinking more deeply about her decisions?
>>25621692The results agree with the way I've been doing it so far, so there's that. Hopefully we don't reach a point where the hammer needs to be dropped on the subject.
>>25621620Thing is, she has no goddamn right to do that.We SERIOUSLY need to contact QB ASAP.
>>25621745Well, Chiaki DID have hallucinate when he used golder weapons so it's not the first time this happened.
>>25621767Well yes. I agree that Ruri sending away Iori's guard detail would be a flagrant overstepping of her bounds.But this is still the day before the 4-day concert begins, so maybe Iori's security detail hasn't arrived yet?Either way, yes, contacting QB should be done.
I wonder how terrible Ruri would have to be in order to break Sayaka's fangirling of her.
>>25621874Beating Spaghetti tan prolly
>>25621745Uh, no. That is the opposite of what happened. Confirmation is given in >>2562157 that Chiaki is, despite her many and varied handicaps, capable of extracting all relevant information from a mission briefing.There simply wasn't any relevant information PRESENT in said briefing to be extracted. In short, Ruri lied.
>>25621889>2562157Yeah that should be >>25621577. S'what I get for posting shit at 3 am.
>>25621904>>25621889That just says that what is in the assignment dossier and what Chiaki took from it are in line with each other, and that 'show her a good time' is verbatim from the request.I'm more inclined to believe that the contract was worded in a broad enough manner that everything Ruri has done thus far falls within its parameters.We can confirm it with QB when we call him to ask about Iori's security detail.
Oh god, I just had a case of the Shadowruns.What if that second dead Ruri had been the real Ruri, and the one in the room with us was a deranged fan that stole her identity?
>>25621888She was with us though. Ruri probably said something along the lines of, "Who the fuck are you? W/e, hold this camera until Murderface gets here."
>>25621995Being Sayaka is suffering.
>>25621995She wasn't with us until she came to collect us after we tried to get past the guards.
>>25622014I'm pretty sure she was outside the entire time, making sure we got inside. I'm sure she was aware of just how horrible it would be for her to return at any point before we did.
