You are a Magical Girl, and you're currently trying to make sure that your client - the most influential and arguably the most annoying idol in the whole entire fucking universe - stays alive through her entire four-hour concert. And while you'd like to be optimistic - there is a chance that NOTHING will happen during the four hours where your client will try to murder the concept of good music in the most cheerful and autotuned way possible - you're just waiting for the other shoe to drop, here. An attempted assassination shoe, along with some kidnapping sneakers and probably some tasteful rape fuck-me-heels.Because hell if the people after your client - and those after you - have been anything but subtle during these past few days.They mailed you a goddamn severed head, for fuck's sake. And walked an entire bunch of armed goons up into your client's room with the help of a Callidus trick. Said Callidus more or less confirmed to be from an Officio whose Incubator has a murder-on for you.You can't get any less subtle than that.
>>27059829Whatwhat what what is thisnew cover art
>>27059829In any case, you're now backstage, standing guard in front of Kirishima Ruri's dressing room door. Sayaka is inside along with your client, along with a few other idols - you can hear them giggling and comparing measurements and other such nonsense inside. The rest of the security detail - that is, Kyosuke and his men, Enishi and Squad Hiryu - had already broken up and taken their respective positions, to start assisting you on this operation.Apparently, you've managed to deliver the Principal well ahead of schedule, and as such the preparations for the concert proper haven't even finished yet. Despite this, the backstage section is a flurry of activity. Extras in gaudy, vibrant costumes rush to and fro, some being herded into makeup, others murmuring mantras underneath their breath, telling themselves that they won't, they CAN'T screw up during their very first performance, in front of thousands of people. The tension, the stress, almost coming off of them in sweaty, nauseous waves.You spot the occassional idol here and there, too - each one made visible in the throng by harried-looking assistants hovering around them, orbiting like fussy sattelites. Each one wielding a brush or a foundation pad or a makeup implement of some sort, each one lashing out at the heavenly body they're surrounding, changing her appearance with every step she took. A transformation sequence in slow motion - from mere girl next door to the stuff dreams are made out of.There's thirty minutes before the contest proper begins with the opening number - which, you've been notified, isn't one your principal is performing in.What do you do for now?Call Kyuubey for details regarding the corpse.Ask for an overall security sitrep.Smoke.Other.

>>27060015With her legs and bust, it would be unfair if Midori got the best butt as well. She's just an all-rounder, ranks very high in everything but not quite top (Mami better boobs, etc).Also despite the obvious bad omen decapitation is, they still don't really make it feel like things are ramping up. More like some unrelated enemy just dumped it in there before going on with their business. Shit hasn't even started going down yet.

>>27059868 >>27059898 >>27059907 >>27060032You decide to indulge yourself while on guard duty. A quick rifling through your inventory gets you a half-empty, half-squashed pack of cigarettes. You carefully and delicately pick out one from the flattened mess, managing to pull a particularly-bent stick without tearing the thing in half. You hold it between your lips as you reach into your inventory for your lighter, this time - and with a flick of your wrist and a metallic click are you able to breathe smoke into your lungs again. Calming, soothing, smoke. Immediately drawing venomous looks from everyone else backstage, which you pointedly ignore.Savoring the taste, you also decide that it's high time you start doing your own job - and you switch on the headset you're wearing under the Warmaster Cap. A sudden rasp of static fills your ears, before it's replaced by terse, one-word conversations delivered from gruff, gravelly throats. You catch the occassional 'affirmative' and 'roger wilco', said in more youthful and more feminine tones - Squad Hiryu, who had been included in the security detail's network since they'd arrived.Keeping your voice down, you ask for a sitrep, and they deliver it to you with surprising cohesion. Kyosuke's men are already posted along the entrances and exits, watching over the people coming and going, eagle-eyed for any suspicious folk. Squad Hiryu has already taken up their vantage points in the stadium, and had been in the middle of sweeping for potential targets when you called in. Nothing from either team. Enishi also reported that while there was a very slight degree of magical activity hovering around in the stadium grounds, it was not a cause for concern - her professional opinion being that it was only a few untransformed magical girls in the audience, possibly to enjoy the concert along with the rest of the mundane folk. If they meant any harm, the magical activity would definitely be stronger.[1/2]
>>27060389You're about to ask for Kyosuke, then, when suddenly an extra, even more gaudily-dressed than the rest in the backstage area - steps up in front of you. Its hair long and wild and an obvious fake blonde, its face painted with ashen white makeup and sharp black streaks to exagerrate the eyes, mouth and cheekbones, giving it a crazed, gaunt look. Its costume consisting of an obviously-stylized suit of armor, one consisting of a broad breastplate molded and painted to look skeletal with a faux ribcage, black leggings and shiny metal greaves. A heavy purple cape hanging from its shoulders, along with a crimson guitar made to look as if blood is caked on its upper half.Just as you're about to tell it to get the fuck out of your face, it speaks - and in a horribly-familiar voice. "Situation normal from my sweep earlier, Miss Chiaki." The thing blinks at you, before laughing lamely. "S-sorry. I was in the vicinity anyway, and I thought I'd deliver my report face-to-face."...What? What the hell is he talking about? How'd he know your name--The extra blinks, before pointing at himself. "Me? But--ah, of course. The makeup." He reaches up with a gloved hand and taps at his headset. "It's Kyosuke, Miss Chiaki. From the security detail, remember?"What the fuck. What the fuck is this.How do you react?

>>27060399[x] What the fuck, man?
>>27060429We could establish some sort of codephase, because someone is going to knock Kyosuke out and steal his uniform.
>>27060399[X] Completely professional. "Roger that. Carry on."
>>27060399Feeling very calm before the storm here Decu.[x] "Minus 50 Chiaki points. Do you have ANYTHING new to report? And get that makeup cleaned off, only clear faces allowed."

>>27060429>>27060446Are you two fucking stupid? Are you incapable of reading comprehension?He's not wearing a mask or helmet, you idiots. He only has makeup on to make him look like Krauzer from DMC.
>>27060399[x] "What the fuck. What the fuck is this."I think that seems succinct.
>>27060495And you think that helps? He's still got enough to make him unrecognizable, and we actually know him, how does 'well it's not TECHNICALLY a mask' matter when it does the same fucking thing?
>>27060399[x] What the fuck man? Get outta that, it's gonna fuck with your movement if shit hits the fan
>>27060399[x] "You should have told me you were going to be with the extras. That should have been mentioned sooner."Stay unflappable.

>>27060399[x]"I had no expections of you and you still manage to disappoint me."[x]Carry on with work after you casually crushed his ego.
>>27060399Krauser has already been mentioned to exist in this universe. If Chiaki knew about him, I'd say to compliment him on his costume. Sadly, I don't think she does, so just stare at him until he's uncomfortable.
>>27060399[x]Stare. Stare some more."So what's your report?"
>>27060399[x]Looks like something I'd shoot for loot.
>>27060399[x]"Next time, warn me before you deviate from the plan. Now give your report already."It's not a bad idea to have someone in a non-magical disguise at our disposal who can be close to the action, guys,

>>27060614Also, come on /tg/, don't you want to see Kyosuke have a moment of day saving supreme awesomeness while wearing that outfit?

Ah good, I don't seem to be too late.But, seriously Kyosuke. That the hell?
>>27060735Foolish anon, you know full well Gen is powered by human emotions.
>>27060727Mami vs Homura Mexican stand-off mirroring Red vs Blue fight in the TV....HHHNNGGGGGGGGG
>>27060417 >>27060423 >>27060429 >>27060527You stare at the thing that called itself Kyosuke only a few moments ago, in the young man's voice no less. You continue to stare in stony silence, as you allow the cigarette held between your lips to burn up slowly - along with the remaining shreds of the clean-cut, responsible image you had of him.You repeat yourself, again. What the fuck? What the hell is he wearing? And why weren't you notified in advance?"It's...uh, it's supposed to be a costume of a quite popular death metal musician, Miss Chiaki. Johannes Krauser II, I believe. Have you ever heard of him?" The young man smiles nervously, his makeup twisting his expression into a wild, manic grin.You shake your head, saying nothing."A-ah. Well, he's not quite popular now, what with suddenly going into temporary hiatus and everything." Kyosuke all but stumbles on his garishly-costumed self to try and cover up what sounds like disappointment in his voice - as if he was expecting you to at least have an inkling of what the hell he was talking about. "Anyway, erm, it was a last-minute thing they decided, Miss Chiaki. They needed someone built enough to wear the costume and able to play lead guitar. As it turns out, uh, I can do both. Quite the coincidence, wouldn't you agree, Miss Chiaki?"...Yeah. What a coincidence.Is he going to stay like that the entire time? It's obviosly going to get in the way in case something does happen and you need every able hand to be able to do their job, here.[1/2]
>>27060815"Oh, no, Miss Chiaki!" Kyosuke's eyes go wide here, his makeup twisting an expression of surprise into one of manic insanity. "This is only for the opening number! As soon as it finishes, I'm going to run offstage and get back into my uniform, as soon as I can. But in case something does happen during the concert, I've got my concealed carry." He lifts his cape and turns slightly to reveal a holstered Beretta M9, strapped to his back.Well...fine. As long as he knows what to do."Of course, Miss Chiaki." Kyosuke nods. "Despite how I look, I am taking this job seriously."You stare at him again, before breathing smoke through your nostrils. Right. Fine.What's his report, then?And so, while standing in his awful, awful costume, Kyosuke gives you his report. Again, like the rest of the security detail, he didn't see anything out of the ordinary - except, of course, the fact that Yoshitaka Mine, Head of the Tojo Group, is sitting in the most expensive seating section of the concert - along with some recording company executives and bigwigs."He came along with his own security, Miss Chiaki. Four men, most probably armed." A moment. "We tried to deny him entry, but he did have tickets, and the stadium owner demanded that we let him through."Huh. Well. Seems that the other shoe has indeed dropped.How do you react?
>>27060727>>27060735>>27060771>Sallaka damages Homu`s Shield after a fight>Homu offs herself because she can`t travel back in time anymoreOh.. Oh god, I can already see it happening. Time to start drinking already.
>>27060826Pull a heavy machinegun from our inventory, set it up in a good vantage point, dial it in on tthe tripod to his position, grease him if he does something untoward.
>>27060826[x] If they have come for the concert, let them enjoy it. If they try to get behind the scenes, you have my permission to use any means to stop hem. Dismissed.

>>27060826We already know that he has a Callidus from the Tenth working for him. Have Enishi check up everyone who's in the booth or has entered or left it in the last 30 minutes. Anything suspicious, she should use her own initiative to deal with the problem.
>>27060826[X] he's sitting next to some of the most important people this production company has and he has access to something akin to magical hypnoses. we need some eyes on him in particular.that's some good info Kyosuke.
>>27060826Just have a sniper or two trained on them for the show.I'm not sure if they are the real threat here.
>>27060826[x] Make sure Kyosuke's goons keep a few eyes on the group, and makes sure they all stay put during the concert. Also assign a MG to watch them.
>>27060826[x]Task one of the mundane grunts to keep an eye on the Tojo Group contingent.He's probably planned for us to pay attention to him while his pet Magical Girl goes around and compromises our security. Which means that the Hiryu girls should be looking everywhere else BUT at Yoshitaka.
>>27060826But why were they allowed to KEEP THE WEAPONS?Can we try and (politely) confiscate them? That would probably throw a wrench in whatever plans they have.
>>27060826Oh noesWatch him good, assuming Callidus close-by
>>27060826[x] REMOVE YAK FROM PREMISES.
>>27060838Homura fails to kill herself and merel loses consciousness.lands awkwardly on her broken shield, seting it off.And that's how MGNQ started. Decu was Gen Urobuchi all along.
>>27060826[x] Is own security? That's never a good sign.We could at least timestop and deal with them if they start shooting into the crowd
>>27060826What an annoying fuck. Still, no MGs with him in the retinue means he's probably a disctraction at worst, isn't planning anything at best, so just keep watch on him.I'm naturally assuming that one of our MGs have already checked that his crew aren't actually MGs under illusion.
>>27060826"I'll tell my associates to keep an eye on them. If they want to enjoy the concert, fine, but the INSTANT they try something they will be dead."
>>27060826[x] get one of our girls to keep an eye on them.
>>27060826[x]Freak the Yak.[x]Timestop.[x]Appear in a Seat besides the Yak. [x]"If something should happen during this concert I am making you responsible for it. And noone and nothing in your arsenal can hope to stop me."[x]Timestop[x]Appear besides Kyousuke again.We should use our Shield more often to freak people out.
I'm tempted to use timestop set up either a bomb under his seat or just frame him with something illegal (drugs or something?) and get him kicked out now. Should we? It's going to make problems and force a confrontation early, but better now than actually in the concert.
>>270609202 problems with that:Every time we use it, Pinky is there.It takes very visible effort to engage timestop.
>>27060826Too bad we can't have Enishi just callidus barrier then into a seperate concert.That said, we should check around just about fucking everywhere else, too. Squad Hiryu should be able to have easy sights on them if we know where they're going. It just seems like a really easy diversionary tactic to just walk in the front door.
>>27060920One major problem with that plan: Pinky
>>27060882>Decu is Gen Urobuchi
>>27060930>>27060940>[x]Wave at PinkyDone.Seriously, we have the most broken Meguca-Ability of all, we really should abuse it more often.
>>27060978>implying that will placate the crazy girl
>>27060978Except that abuse tends to end with our heart getting ripped out.Also, don't forget that Pinky demonstrated she can force our time stop to end if she wants to. It's unreliable as a trump card.
>>27060978While I don't blame Pinky for not using it, we need to turn the shield manually. I'd rather not show a lot of people how our shield works until we get our TK back.
>>27060978Normaly I'm confident with out Pinky taming ability but she hates idols, so the chances of her being in a good mood are slim.
>>27060826Broken computer makes this way harder than it needs to be.
>>27060978It can't be abused because Pinky can just go "Nope! No Timestop for you!" and deactivate it. The shield obeys her, not us. She can activate and deactivate Timestop at will, while we need to physically crank it.
if we do use timestop, we'll have to do it where no one can see us and we can 'acquire' the Yak guns quickly.
>>27061037Decu warns you beforehand, doesn't he. That's the only way you could be doing these so quickly.
Funny, we all worry about what mood Pinky will be in every time we use our shield, but the thing that would scare me the most would be her not being there at all. Not even after calling out for her.
>>27061037Krauser is the same number of letters as Kyosuke.Coincidence?
>>27061043>gunsaren't as much as a problem as them being in the way when the magical girl stuff starts happening. I personally like the idea of framing them for bringing prohibited items into the concert by just slipping drugs into their bags or something, then forcing them to leave. Hell, we could get them arrested potentially.
>>27061048No, I do these in real time, hence the... "quality".
>>27061074we don't have drugs on hand and going through the audiences pockets takes to long.
>>27061074Problem with that is how do we get evidence they have prohibited items on them? I'm not an expert on Japanese law, but I would guess that like all devloped nations you need more than just "I bet those dudes have drugs!" to search someone.
>>27061092Damn it, Midori. Shouldn't have let her go through our stuff.
>>27061099I don't think pancakes count as illegal under the letter of the law. Yet.
>>27061099Didnt she just pocket our smokes?Haaaaaa, life was easier when we had our painkillers..
>>27061074We don't have drugs.We guns, though, but good luck collaring them for that when most of us are probably carrying too.
>>27061138She emptied our pill bottles at an earlier point.
>>27061141difference being that we are security detail and they are gangsters.
>>27061138Stop that. We don't need Green and Yellow giving us the "warmaster, I am disappoint" face.
>>27061141I don't think she went through our inventory shield, did she? I bet we've got some sort of illegal device in there. Bomb is probably a bit too dangerous, the concert'd be called off.>>27061095"Anonymous tip off". We're hired thugs who answer to the concert, we're not police. And if they don't stick with the rules, we get to kick them out.
>>27061164>the concert'd be called offThat would be terri- OH WAIT NO IT WOULDN'T.
>>27061180It would be rescheduled though. Then we'd have to do it all over again.
>>27061180>wanting to extend our missionyou fucking BASTARD
>>27061180Pretty sure "Intentionally ruining the concert" isn't in our contract. If we can't defend a principle during a major public performance, then what good are we?
>>27061206>If we can't defend a principle during a major public performance, then what good are we?Technically, we'd be better at killing a target during a major public performance.We're on the wrong fucking side.
>>27061222That's it. We need to do this. Start thinking how we'd kill Ruri every second, and deploy everybody to counter that move.
>>27061196Oh no no no. We agreed to be her escort for THIS concert. Sure we'll cut her a break and waive the fee, but if she wants someone to fuck with for the next one, she can deal with a legion of low-ranking plebs.By that time we'll have purged the Tojo group and possibly the Tenth Officio, so things will probably go a lot smoother then.
You know, we REALLY should have told at least our own officio to make sure to register if they're going to the concert, with strict orders to get get out as fast as they can with only minimal magic.I don't want to accidentally frag any of our own who just came to see the party.
>>27061222But we get to do the badass thing by taking the harder job.
>>27061229What would we do..>timestop>kill>get outI think we're better off asking others what they'd do. Also I don't think they want to kill Ruri, more like get her to sign a contract.
>>27061249Balls. You make a good point. I don't suppose Mami or QB might know if any of our own are at the concert? Wouldn't hurt to ask.
>>27061229I think we'd probably just strangle her. Over and over. Eternally.Erotically.
>>27061249You know what else could go wrong? What if there are MG's from neither our own or the 10th? Shit would really go down if we killed someone from another officio.
>>27061249Wait, we've got a bunch of girls back at the officio watching this shit on TV, right? Well they can just ID girls from crowd pan shots, and text them to be ready to GTFO without a fight if shit fucking blows up.And we can get the Vanus or whatever to ID girls from other officios and text us details.
>>27061298>>27061261Let's do this.
>>27061298The closest Officio to us in proximity is the 10th, and they may have been hired to work against us. I don't think they'd give us the most reliable intel given they could easily have girls both just watching the show and involved in doing something to Ruri.
>>27061325What part of my statement implied I wanted to talk to Dickbutt Officio?
>>27061298Good idea. Also, tell Enshi or whoever's on disguise-busting to scan the crowd for basic magical disguises. We don't come down on them now, but we'll at least be looking in the right direction, as well as tell the girls back in the officio to text their mates in the party if anything happens, bug out with anyone they came with?So, we're not doing anything about the Tojo boss right now, then?
>>27061340The part where you implied that it'd do any good, since the most magical girls by proximity would be from the 10th.
Hey Decu, quick question:Which number Officio is in China?Does Korea get its own Officio, or are they the bottom bitch as always in the China-Korea-Japan rivalry?And does Taiwan get its own Officio, or does the one on the mainland have jurisdiction/market dominance?
>>27061325He meant we know the higher target threats of the 10th so if there's any well known MGs from there we can ID them and be ready to act if they move.
>>27061354And surely our own officio would have absolutely no intel whatsoever on their nearest and dearest rivals.
>>27061354It's still worth checking who out of our lot are there, or if any have come from abroad for the concert (a possibility given Ruri's international fame) to avoid any unfortunate incidents.
>>27061354We keep eyes on the 10th, we've got files on them. Sending some video footage back to base to ID any of them in the crowd is something we can do in-house without worrying about bothering the 10th "hey, did you send any assassins to kill our principal?"
>>27061359>Twenty Officios total>Thinking Taiwan is significant enough to have one all to itself
>>27061351>scan the crowd for basic magical disguisesShe said she didn't detect any active magical use. I'm going to trust in the Callidus Rank Leader that when she checks magical activity levels, she's taking disguises into account.
>>27061377There are actually 21, but you have to recognise either the mainland chinese or Taiwanese officio, as both insist there is only one real Chinese officio.
>>27061400>implying the 21st Officio isn't Pinky's OfficioWe should totally ask her if she can overwrite contracts the way QB did to Midori.
>>27061426Now I wan an "evil campaign" spin off with the Pinky Officio.
>>27061440>Pinky Officio>Officers have Golden WeaponsWelp. everyone else is fucked.
>>27061440>New Game Plus
>>27061448Neither Kirika nor Kilgore were killed by our Golden Weapons.Antimaterial rifle > all.
>>27061464We had massive help during both battles, though.
>>27060846 >>27060853 >>27060857 >>27060842You cross your arms over your chest, glaring down at your feet as you think. As much as you'd prefer them being escorted out of the premises, doing it in plain sight of important-sounding executives doesn't sound all that smart. You're not as stupid as to try and have them taken out in full view of the audience, either.You look back up, nodding to yourself once, and then barking your instructions to Kyosuke. You want one of his men to get as close as possible to the group, but not close enough that they find out if they're being spied on. Someone he trusts personally - someone that can't be bought out no matter how thick of a wad of money's slapped into his face.Kyosuke looks offended at this, his makeup turning the expression into one of complete and utter hatred. "...Very well, Miss Chiaki, but I do wish to put forward that not one member of my team isn't trustworthy. I'd trust any one of them with my life."...Right. So can he do it or not?"I'll assign my best man on the job, Miss Chiaki." Kyosuke replies after a moment, a bit more stiffly than usual. You nod at this, and go on to tell hiim that you'll have one of Squad Hiryu give Kyosuke's man overwatch as well as keep Yoshitaka Mine in her sights. Ready to take him out the moment he tries anything funny."Isn't that a bit excessive--" Kyosuke starts, before someone new comes into the scene, spouting what sounds like a foreign language consisting of sliding vowels and half-coughs. ...German, you think. The both of you turn to look at the source of the voice - and the both of you behold a rather tall and lean idol, dressed in a rather revealing costume consisting of red intercrossing leather straps, and spikes, and a whip with spikes on the end. Her long crimson hair styled into the same wild look as Kyosuke's wig.Who...? Oh. Wait. It's...you saw her in the stadium rehearsal yesterday. Map-something? Mapo Tofu? Map--[1/2]
>>27061505Hooray, it's the other sadist!
>>27061505FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT
>>27061505"Well, whose fucking fault is it that you have to play Kirishima's poolboy day in and day out? If you only continued doing what you were born to do, rather than keep working like a prole-"More German from Kyosuke, a bit more hurried and hasty this time, and it's here that the young man makes a break for it. Apparently eager to get away from Mappi. "I'll have my man on the job, Miss Chiaki! Rest assured of it!" He calls back over his shoulder, cape flying out behind him as he escapes."Idiot," Mappi breathes through a frown, before nodding at you. "You. I saw you at the rehearsal, yesterday. I don't suppose you're looking for a career change?" She looks you up and down with an appraising look, her deepening frown signifying that she's not all that impressed.You narrow your eyes at this idol, before shaking your head."Pity. We could use a new S." She lets out a breath. "We're kind of a dying breed, ever since your principal pretty much leveled the playing field to just her and me." The redhead glances at the door behind you, shaking her head, before stalking off in the direction where Kyosuke went. Idols, you grunt underneath your breath. It's here that you feel both your wrists warm up the slightest bit - the golden bangles you've been wearing seemingly trying to catch your attention.What do you do now? Call Kyuubey about the corpse.Call Kyoko about her assignment.Talk to Yuu.Notify Squad Hiryu about Yoshitaka Mine, and then wait for the concert to start.
>>27061505> spouting what sounds like a foreign language consisting of sliding vowels and half-coughs. ...German, you think. Yeah, nah, everyone in this Thread will suffer through this with me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvH1tDbtm2M
>>27061547[x]Talk to Yuu.
>>27061505>and the both of you behold a rather tall and lean idol, dressed in a rather revealing costume consisting of red intercrossing leather straps, and spikes, and a whip with spikes on the endMAXIMUM LEWDS!
>>27061547>[x]Talk to Yuu.Wheee.
>>27061547[X]Talk to Yuu.
>>27061547[x] Notify Squad Hiryuu.[x] Talk to Yuu.
>>27061547Kyoko and Midori!
>>27061558>>27061563THERE IS A TIME AND PLACE FOR THIS, AND ITS NOT NOW!
>>27061547[x]Talk to Yuu.Brainspacething seems to go pretty quick so we should have time to boss Hiryus about after.
>>27061547[x]Talk to Yuu.If she's been quiet all this time, it's probably not good news.
>>27061547>[X]Talk to Yuu.she probably has good reason to get our attention.
>>27061547>[x] Talk to YuuWe need to talk to her more, and she might know something. Decu can you get back on IRC please?
>>27061547[x] Notify Squad Hiryu about Yoshitaka Mine then talk to Yuu
>>27061549http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWtTBPaRV2Afuck you, have some good German>>27061547[x]Talk to Yuu.
>>27061547[x]Notify Squad Hiryu about Yoshitaka Mine, then talk to Yuu.Wonder what she could want.And Asuka was surprisingly less abrasive for Chiaki than expected. I'm sure this will be rectified eventually.
>>27061547>[x]Talk to Yuu.
>>27061572Says you. Fuck off, we have this.
>>27061547[x]Talk to Yuu.[x]Notify Squad Hiryu about Yoshitaka Mine, and then wait for the concert to start.
>>27061572Pinky might be possessive and intrusive, but Yuu hasn't said a word. If she wants to talk it might be pretty important.
>>27061572>not knowing a Decu hint when it slaps you in the face.
>>27061547[x] talk to Yuu but keep it brief. We're on the job after all.We should talk to her more once we're done here though.
>>27061549ahh another occasion where the dub is better than the original:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tfiujkOnEo
>>27061549This is what happens when you make a Jap speak German. The dub of this part is considerably more bearable.
>>27061549Personally, I found her lack of skills in my native language rather amusing.
>>27061547[ ] Talk to Strength Best Girl - I mean Yuu.
>>27061547Talk to YuuShe obviously picked something up so let's see what it is
[x]Talk to Yuu, but only if it's mission relevant.>We're kind of a dying breed, ever since your principal pretty much leveled the playing field to just her and meWait, what? Wasn't the playing field level'd by Kilgore? What's Miss Mappi here suggesting?
>>27061642>She obviously picked something upGW on the premises
>>27061580I want to offer HER a change of career. Can you imagine her as an Eversor trainee under Sayaka? I can, and it is fucking hilarious.
>>27061646I think she means that Ruri's success has driven a lot of S idols out of business.
>>27061653Hmmm, actually given Ruri's pretty much got her idol niche locked down, that might even work. Except for the whole contracting thing, but hey.At least it would piss Sayaka off in a way that gives Chiaki a perfect excuse, which can only be a plus.Except it turns out they get along perfectly and mutually piss Chiaki off instead.
>>27061706We need more people that annoy Chiaki in a good way.Or as I like to call them, "acceptable kneecaps".
>>27060032oh lawd that filename I'll be using that.
>>27061717It's a pity only MGs (and enemies) are acceptable kneecaps, when so many of the characters we meet that need serious kneecapping are civilians.
>>27061869It sorta comes with the territoryA lot of untouchable people are utter cunts
>>27061869We should ask Misaka for a gun the simulates the experience of a kneecapping, without the permanence of actually blowing their lower leg off.
>>27061869That does not have to be so. Just accept the flesh of the fallen angels.
>Homura with golden wings was Satan>Chiaki beat Satan's face in with her own golden shield.
>>27062091One fucking job.
>>27062101WHAT IS LOVE?
>>27062100How did this addition even start?
>>27062109BABY DONT HURT ME
>>27062109BABY DON'T HURT ME
>>27062112Because one time we did the what is love routine, that got added just before the last one.And decu posted immediately.>>27062123ONE FUCKING JOB
>>27062112Someone accidentaly replied to the wrong post once, resulting in:WHAT IS LOVE?BABY DON'T HURT MEBECAUSE KYOKONO MORE.
>>27061558 >>27061563 >>27061565 >>27061568You roll up one sleeve just so that the golden bracelet underneath is visible. ...From the faint glow surrounding it, not to mention the warmth pressing gently into your skin - it seems like Yuu's trying to catch your attention indeed. Funny - you've been wearing them for so long that you'd almost forgotten what they were, instead of just fancy jewelry.In any case, you might as well see what she wants. This is probably the first time she'd deliberately attracted your notice like this, and you're not going to ignore it.How did it go again? You have to close your eyes, right? Focusing on the Golden Weapon and nothing else. Slowing your breathing down, relaxing your entire frame. Letting your senses unroll from your own soul gem, to reach out to the bracelets--"Matsuda-san?" You hear someone say your name right next to you, snapping you out of your concentration. You grunt irritably at this, opening your eyes to glare upon the intruder and hopefully scare her off.You blink again to see Yuu, in her usual black onesie-hoodie kind of deal. Just as tanned as always, the lower half of her face covered by her hood's muffler. Her eyes completely black, her pupils bright amber....She's right there, in the real world. In the stadium. Beside you. You're not inside the Golden Weapon, she's outside--"O-oh! Um, no, Matsuda-san, please don't be too surprised!" Yuu holds up both hands placatingly, shaking her head furiously. "I'm not really outside, I'm still in the Golden Weapon! You're the only one who can see me right now!" She thinks for a moment. "Um, please think of me as a ghost that only you can see!"A ghost?...Well, sure. But how...?[1/2]
>>27062154It's here that the short, dark-skinned girl seems to blush. "Um, well, I know Matsuda-san was doing something important today, and bringing her home would just be too much of a distraction, s-so...um. Well. I just took a bit of your energy to manifest myself here. D-don't worry, it was only a little bit...I took it when you were having breakfast, earlier."Ah. That's...that explains why you asked for seconds, then. With the pancakes.Yuu blinks, before shaking her head. "E-er, no, Matsuda-san. That was all you. I took some from your orange juice."...Right. Well. Erm. Did she need you for anything? That's why she made the bracelets feel warm earlier, right?"Oh, yes!" Yuu nods. "Um, Matsuda-san, remember how I told you about how I fought a Magical Girl in America? The one who nearly killed me with a kitchen knife?"Yeah? You remember that at leasst. What about her?"Um. Well..." The spectral girl looks down, her form flickering out of existence briefly. "See, I know it's weird, but after I fight someone I could always tell if they're around...a-and I think she's here, Matsuda-san. Right in this very stadium."...Oh.How do you react?
>>27062166Huh.>[x]"Who is she? If she could endanger the mission, tell me what you know."
>>27062166OOC? EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEIC? [x] Is she going to be a problem, do you think?
>>27062166"Can you recognize her if you see her?"See if Yuu can move autonomously to explore the area.
>>27062166[x]Clench hand reflexively
>>27062166"....Kinda figures. Can you lead me to her? I'd rather give her the benefit of the doubt before the weapons come out."(So the shadowruns about wendy running about the place in the guise of Midori were right...)
>>27062166[x] Remain Calm. "I know that Ruri is popular world-wide, so an American Magical Girl being here isn't too much of a stretch. Do you think she'll be a problem?"Well, here comes Wendy.
>>27062166Is this likely Wendy time, or do we think it's someone else?
>>27062166[X] "she sounds familiar, why would she be here?"
>>27062166[x] "Pink with black and white checker pattern?"
>>27062166[x] Kitchen knife girl... We don't know if (assuming that's Wendy) she's hostile or not. Inform all points, there's a high level melee magical girl from (whichever officio) around, keep your distance from people and call in frequently.
>>27062166[x] "She doesn't have to be here to cause trouble, Ruri has fans all over the world. But can you describe her so I know what to look out for if she's up to something?"
>>27062210Refer to her as a former member of the Rabbits to get the seriousness across.
Yuu was nearly killed by Wendy? I..don't remember this bit. Why, memory.
>>27062210>>27062223[x] We don't know her motives, could be a third party, could be bystander, could be enemy. But she's dangerous. Do not close engage except for self defense if she comes after you, only if she engages the principal. Don't take the first offensive action. If she targets you get out and let us know. Otherwise, proceed as normal.
>>27062210>>27062223Do we need to inform the others now?If shes in the immediate vicinity, we can seek her out and have a nice chat.
>>27062166[x] "Can you give me a more exact location?"
>>27062241It was an offhand mention by Yuu when we talked to her a long time ago.
>>27062241The wendy writefagging hadn't started yet at that point.All we knew at that point was 'a girl with a knife'
>>27062257We can have a nice chat afterwards, while we're not in the middle of a mission and there are so many cameras around. Right now is not a good time to have a chat.And we still don't know what she's after. Even though we told her it'll all be ok in the dream, Dreams and reality don't often meet the way you want them to.
>>27062241Actually, Yuu nearly killed Wendy, not the other way around. Ask if she's going to cause any problems. If not, we have a job to do.
>>27062303Um.>"The one who nearly killed me with a kitchen knife?"I think you're not on the right lines, anon.
>>27062206Ask her this.>>27062264Then this.>>27062252Reworking this a bit:[x] Attention all units, there is a high-level Magical Girl from neither the Ninth or the Tenth Officios in the area, to be specific a former member of America's famed Rabbits squadron. We don't know her motives, could be a third party, could be bystander, could be enemy, could be ally. But she's dangerous. Do not engage in close combat except for self defense if she comes after you, or if she engages the principal. Do not initiate hostilities. If she targets you get out and let us know. Otherwise, proceed as normal.>>27062257Well, there's a high-tier MG who's supposed to be dead running around. Its only courteous to let our team know that she's here.
>That awkwardness when your old squeeze tried to kill your gloves once.
>>27062339Was that supposed to be a pun? Get a grip, man.
>>27062339>old squeezeTechnically she's our newest squeeze.
>>27062359I see that >>27062339 doesn't have a stranglehold on those puns.
>>27062339>>27062359>>27062361If we Squeeze Wendy's squeezables while wearing Yuu does that count as a threesome?
>>27062385If that were the case, then Wendy wearing the bracers would be cheating.And also very awkward.
>>27062385If Yuu manifests and watches, which one of us is the pervert?
>>27062166Wait, didn't Wendy suffer death by Malal?
>>27062385>>27062400>>27062408>>27062409I now want to see that Midori/Wendy picture where Chiaki has walked in on them continued.Chiaki just calmly walks in and starts Yuu-squeezing wendy's butt.>..."keep going"
>>27062326If it's Wendy,[x]thisOtherwise check for more details on appearance.
>>27062415What? No. She was killed by some chick from UAA. Then revived by Pinky.
>>27062415She got better.
>>27062321Just checked and I remembered wrong. Wendy did nearly kill Yuu but Yuu son that fight anyway.
>>27062432Why did Pinky revive her? As a favor to us?
>>27062452As a favor to herself.
>>27062452>Pinky>FavorsNah, she must have SOME sort of plan.
>>27062452The ways of the Pinky are mysterious.
>>27062452We don't know. It's probably related to that thing Wendy couldn't tell us last time we met her.
>>27062461>what'd most embarrass/annoy mybdear homura-chan?>I know! I'll bring back one of her exes from the dead!>chiihihihihi-!
Sorry everyone, I have to cut this short as I suddenly have work in five hours D: We will continue, however, on Sunday Night! Thank you for everyone's participation, and feedback is always appreciated!Most voted action starts the next thread! Questions answered after the writeups, and we've got a new person writing for us!
>>27062461Indeed, the question is do we assume Wendy being here is part of her plan or just a coincidence? Protip: there are no coincidences.
“Do it.”We stood there together, the magical girl and me, and we stared each other down. I’d set a passcode – a sign, a secret signal – with QB Heavy when I set this job up, but…“It’s degrading…ma’am.” But Sparkles wouldn’t do it. She gave me a look like she’d just stepped in something from under her baseball cap. “I’m sorry, but I’m not here to amuse you or something. You needed me to do a job, and I’ll do it.”I slumped. She just wasn’t getting it.“Listen,” I said, trying to keep the irritation out of my voice. “I set up a passcode so I could be totally sure you were one of Mister QB’s girls and not some like, super terrorist or something that wants my butt in a blender. So do it, or I’ll just go alone, and I’ll probably die, and you’ll have to live with it.”“…” She opened her mouth, then shut it again with a sigh before starting to move. Thinking lightning-fast, I whipped out my phone to take a picture as she assumed the position, and she glared at me with a venom usually reserved for the biggest and jerkiest bees. Do bees have venom? I feel like I should know this.“…Nyaaa,” she grumbled – which I didn’t even think you could do, going ‘nyaaa’ – as she took on a lucky cat-ish pose. …Even if she hated me for it, I still took a picture. She was really cute, for a battle-hardened killing machine.…Subarashii desu nya.“…Are you done?” the magical girl huffed, while I set my new phone wallpaper. “Is that good enough?”I really sort of expected there’d be more cat ears, but I decided that just this once, I’d give her a break. There was violence in those cobalt blue eyes, and it’d be a shame to waste it on me. Both of us had bigger fish to fry tonight. …And maybe some fried fish after.---(1/9)
>>27062506OK, thanks for the thread Decu! Take it easy at work and we'll see you tomorrow.
>>27062497I'm now viewing the entire MGNQ universe as a soap opera run by Pinky for her amusement.
>>27062518We went over the mission details on the way there (and it sounded so cool to talk about it like a real spy thing) – a splinter cell (so awesome) of magical girls had broken away from the Ninth and joined up with some of the local yakuza, and they were making a real mess of the Officio’s reputation. The Ninth wanted a good, clean opportunity to deal with them and set an example. I wanted some low-key security while I dug for a scoop about some rogue magical girls. It worked out for everyone! Maybe not the scumbags we were about to bust, but who cares about them?…It was about the only way I could afford a bodyguard, actually. Things were way easier when Kaneda was still around. We just backed each other up when we could. She didn’t scowl as much as the girl the Ninth sent, either.Her name was Miki Sayaka, and I found out later she’d already started drumming up a reputation in the Ninth as kind of a goody-goody. Well, I mean, like half the magical girls you ever hear about ever start out like that, but for Miki, it’d lasted a lot longer than just a couple of months, and as she lectured me over and over about staying behind her and hiding if things got messy and something something I wasn’t really listening I almost started to think she might have been really worried about me.Once I was done looking over my equipment (everything but the mic hidden on my person, which would’ve been a pain in the butt to take off and mess with), I interrupted her.(2/9)
>>27062497She always thinks of us. Pinky best girl after all.>>27062506>a new person writing for usNew prey for the wolves!
>>27062527“Are you buying?” It seemed to take her completely off-guard, and she stopped mid-sentence like a deer in headlights.“…What?”“I mean, you seem really worried about me. I figured you were gonna buy dinner. Ooh, we could catch a movie!” Well, maybe I was a little bit serious, too. She looked like she could afford to lighten up a little bit, and the stony look she gave me only proved my point.“Please, ma’am, if you don’t take this seriously you’re just risking both our lives.” We locked eyes for a second, then I let mine slip away toward the ground and messed with my camera again, mostly to look busy. And like I wasn’t a little mad. I don’t think it worked.She was seriously no fun at all.---(3/9)
>>27062506>I suddenly have work in five hours D:Damn Decu you need to get some energy drinks down your throat to not burn out.
>>27062534Miki glanced at me uneasily about every five seconds as we were unceremoniously led into a dingy hotel room in a crappy part of the city. Somewhere private. No cops. No yaks. Just four magical girls, me, and my assistant (slash bodyguard, but they didn’t know that). She clutched a cheapie video camera that I didn’t actually expect would make it out alive; I showed her how to use it on the way, or at least, how to look like she was using it.We were all candid here (well, you know, allegedly). Everything was out in the open, because this was a small bid for legitimacy. A mission statement for these magical girls, a chance for them to clear up some misconceptions about what they were doing. I didn’t know how they were going to spin robbing a bank and shaking down old ladies for cash as misconceptions, but that was part of the fun I guess.It wasn’t really why I was here – I was hoping to squeeze them for office politics in the Ninth, and maybe get a little information on the local Families – but if this went well I was looking to get some great info for basically nothing, and if it went south…Well, if it went south, then I’d get to see an Eversor NOT trying to break my legs for once. If this didn’t kill me, it could be pretty worth it just for that. And live footage always went over well with my readers…The whole room took on a heavy air as we settled in. Two magical girls guarding the door, one sticking to Miki like glue as she started up her camera, and their leader, a tall, skeezy-looking girl in orange, leering down at me. More than anything, though, I was worried Miki was going to snap – her knuckles were pure white as she gripped the poor camcorder.(4/9)
>>27062497Yeah, that could be quite miffling. Thing is, they "parted" in good terms, and Pinky should know it.>>27062511What is the rest of her team is there? Should we tell Sayaka, Enishi and Hiryu squad about this?
>>27062537Me, I wasn’t nearly so nervous. I could rattle off these questions in my sleep. To start with, it was just smiling and feeding them what they wanted to hear – making sure Orange got to talk about what we’d arranged before, go on about organizational differences and red tape and hypocrisy and every other teenage excuse for doing stupid, selfish dumb crap, only with sparkly superpowers. It was really hard not to yawn after only a couple of minutes of shallow justifications, and I could almost hear Miki’s teeth grinding from where I was sitting. …I was kind of impressed she was waiting for a signal or something. I mean, I had no idea what to tell her, but-“Hey, reporter girl.” I felt a hand clamp down on one of my boobs and squeeze WAY too hard. “You getting this?” I pulled away from Orange – something or other Misuzu – and onto my feet.“I’m pretty sure we’re good, actually? I can’t think of anything else I need from you guys.” I shot Misuzu my winningest smile as I started to tuck my phone away, but in a split-second she was on me, backing me up toward the wall with her hand squeezing my wrist uncomfortably tight.“I don’t think so. I think I’ll fucking tell you when we’re ‘good’, and then we’re gonna-“CRASH. The sound of a video camera being shattered to pieces filled the room, and Misuzu whipped her head back toward Miki. I had a feeling I knew what’d happened, but standing there gawping would have been stupid – instead, I tensed one leg, then yanked on the magical girl’s wrist as I leapt, planting my knee firmly in her gut.(5/9)
>>27062544She let me go and staggered back, but magical girls are never out of it for long, not without a lot more than that. But that wasn’t news or anything – I’d done this like a thousand times, probably. First, a gut shot…then, I slipped my stun gun out of my pocket and shoved it in her face.Maybe it was cruel to go for the face, but you don’t really have the luxury of going easy on sparkles. Her whole body twitched violently as 6.8 million volts of electric truth pulsed through her body. As I held it on her – guided her to the ground with it, almost - I glanced to the side, where Miki had been before, only to see her unlucky guard sort of slumping, trying to dizzily maneuver her head out of the wall. Along with pieces of my camera, everywhere.That’s why I didn’t give her any real equipment. I didn’t even tell her it was basically crap! I was so going to yell at her after this. I’d probably even dock her pay. Having lackeys – even temporary ones – was kinda fun, actually.The magical girl at my feet groaned, reminding me that she’d probably need a little more than a lengthy taser shot to stay out. So I kicked her in the head. Like, as hard as I could. A boot, the kind you’d probably really worry would kill somebody.She’d probably be fine.(6/9)
>>27062506>we've got a new person writing for us!
>>27062552Miki was already dealing with the other two girls in a flurry of white and silver, but it didn’t seem like it was going that well. One of them kept catching her sword with a nasty razor-lined chain whenever she’d try to swing, and the other had a short spear that didn’t seem to fit well in the room at all, but was more than enough to hold off Miki’s blows as she crept around to get behind-There was a thump as Miss Hole-in-the-wall hit the ground, then began to dazedly pull herself up. With a dash and a twist, though, I was in the air, and my knee connected hard with the side of her head, continuing smoothly into a pin as I, er, kinda landed on her neck. I rolled right to my feet and turned to give her a jolt for good measure.…This was fast. It was tight, it wasn’t really where I worked well. I wasn’t a bad fighter if I had to do it, but there was no room to move here, and…well, it was four magical girls. I heard Spear moving, but I wasn’t quick enough. The world moved in slow motion as I whipped my head around again and the heavy spear flew toward my face.(7/9)
>>27062560…I heard a pop, as it jerked violently, slowing just enough for me to scramble away in time. A dive from Miki, I figured out a second later, as she grabbed for the spear’s shaft and nearly tore her arm out of her socket slowing it down. Flawlessly she followed up, the flat of her sword connecting with Spear’s nose as a bladed chain came down on her back and ripped at her cape. The chain came down on her again and again, but she struck at Spear over and over instead, blood smearing onto her polished sword as she struck over and over.…It was pretty exciting. I kind of wished I had popcorn – it wasn’t like I had any business in a brawl like that, so…I mean, that’s not totally cold, right?The moment she struck her final blow, the chain looped around her neck instead, and blood poured as it cut into her, her eyes bulging as the last magical girl standing tried to choke her out. Or cut her head off. I wasn’t totally sure. My head raced as I tried to think of what to do. The taser? The spear? The…the nightstand? By the time I’d even come up with a plan, though, Miki had already acted, driving her sword back into her attacker and……and twisting, the moment of panic replaced with a cold fury, even as her throat bled. The girl behind her screamed In pain, her face blanching as Miki’s sword started to open up an even bigger hole in her abdomen.…I covered my mouth and turned away.---(8/9)
>>27062555Is that how clams work?
>>27062566The two of us sat awkwardly on the bed. Her neck had already healed in the few minutes since the fight, and she’d laid out all four of the other magical girls neatly, using her cape to dress the gaping stomach wound she’d left. Backup was on its way, supposedly. Or at least, a cleanup crew.“So…”“QB Heavy Industries is going to review your recordings of tonight.” She answered my question before I could ask it. “If possible, we don’t want to lose these girls. They…they aren’t bad people. I’m sure they’re not.. If there’s something we can do on our end so they don’t feel like they have to do this…” The stony professional seemed to have melted away, just a little bit, and so did the little bitty hints of scared newbie. …She looked sad.Just…sad.“…Just take ‘em, I don’t even care anymore.” I flopped back on the bed to stare at the ceiling instead. It wasn’t exactly a lie or anything – they’d really had nothing interesting to tell me after all. And the smell of blood in here was…ugh. It was hard to keep myself from shaking. I didn’t actually do a very good job, I think.I just wanted to get out and get this stupid night over with.“…Thanks, NECO-san.”“You’re paying for the camera you wrecked. But you did a good job, Sayapyon.”The air grew tense again in an instant, and I wondered if maybe she’d seen one of the other girls waking up.“...Sayapyon?” she asked me, quietly. I could barely hear her over the hum of the crappy lights.“’Cause you have a face like a rabbit.” Old words, parroted because…Because they felt right, I guess. She kind of did have that look. It felt like something she’d pick up on.Neither of us talked much for the rest of the evening. We didn’t even go out for dinner and a movie, after all. But I’d sort of made a friend. Kind of. And friends like Sayapyon…like Sayaka, those are friends you have for life.(9/9)
Cold, dark, damp. The storm had already passed once night came around to reveal the moon shining brilliantly. While it wasn't enough for most people to see, I didn't have a problem. I've lost count to how many time's I've been up here, doing this exact same thing day after day. Sure, some days there are different roofs I perch on and on different times of night. But it always ends in one of two ways; either I go to sleep empty-handed or I get some action. After seeing a car pull into an allyway, it looks like it might be the latter tonight.This town has really gone to hell ever since the UAA made home next door. While rare, some of the people that do escape that hell end up over here. Not only that, but sometimes the reverse happens where people are taken from here and made to be in the action when they never did anything. What a glorious country this has become. At least I've done a few things about it.The car turns out to be four men and a woman, with the women worse for wear. It's not just the visuals with the ripped clothing and bruises; I can sense the pain. She's in distress, soon to be panic while the big boys are completely clean of any danger. Well, I can change that in a good amount of time.It's all about waiting now. Waiting to see what's going on, waiting to see what is a threat, and waiting for the perfect moment to strike.
>>27062542>Should we tell themI think we should, although personally I'd like to find her first and see what she's doing here. However that may not be possible with time constraints, so my course of plan would be to try and get a general location from Yuu, feed that into the security team with orders to keep an eye out and tell us if she's seen.We can only prepare for so much, after all.
>>27062592"About time you paid up, bitch!" One of the men drags the woman out of the car and throws her by the arm."You of all people should know the boss doesn't like waiting." Lowest voice goes to the biggest man. All of the men pull their jackets asside, showing guns in each one. 3 pistols for the goons and a revolver for the big man. It's all intimidation; if you want to keep somebody in place, crush the reason to escape with fear."But... I made him a deal. Three weeks and..." She's already on the virge of tears. The body was shaking before she even got out of the car."No buts. You didn't read the fine print. 'Dates subject to change'. Now wheres the money?" Fucking fine print, the bane of men and women around the world even when they don't know it."No... please, I-" She had crawled herself up against a brick wall, holding her hands up in defence but the backside of the gun connected sharply with her cheek. I could feel it from here, the sharp immdiate pain followed by the dulled sense afterwards. It's a damp feeling in my chest, slowly spreading through my veins, empowering me."Stop talking nonsense!" The man who hit her yelled, now pointing the trigger at her head. "Give us the money, or we'll take it and your little Tommy boy from you! He'd be a sad little boy then, wouldn't he?" He distanced himself from the others, approaching the woman directly while the other three were by the car, closer to light.The last mistake he'll ever make.(2/6)
>>27062608I've already transformed by the time I'm falling. Their reactions, if they've seen me yet, are to late to save him by now. A hard bludegon of metal makes contact with the back of his head, bulging out his eyes and knocking a few teeth loose. The cranium cracks under the force of metal and gravity as the spine is immediately broken off from the head. I make landing before the body does, and the three by the van see their buddy dead, a woman cowering in fear and a pair of red eyes staring at them from the darkness.At least he got a quick death."What the fuck?!" A common reaction from the goon, a shock feeling of fear that stops them in their tracks. "What the hell are you doing!" The big guy takes command as he should. "Shoot the damn thing!" The two goons quickly draw their guns to take a shot, but by then it's too late.Even as the bullets fly, the shield is up already. A swirling sphere of black and a strange shade of blue- non-photo blue I think it was called - absorbs the bullets as they hit it. When the pistol rounds are gone, the shield is at it's limit. I let it burst, a flurry of magic colliding with both of the goons. One falls over backwards in pain as the explosion rips at his body while the other still manages to stand. He's next.A quick dash unsummons the mace, but I don't need it right now. Its a simple combo, a punch to the stomach, grab the head and ram it into the wall then throw him away. Its enough to keep him alive, but enough pain caused for me to follow up. The other goon is up at that time, but I come to him swinging the mace. It makes direct contact with the face, making a bloody mess. The pain forms in my hand, the liquid essence of agony swirls in it asking to be used. I grant it its desire, and fling a bolt at the one still alive. Big bad boy is last.
>>27062506>super short threadYou just wanted to show off the new chiaki rear, didn't you, Decu?It was totally worth it!
>>27062617The revolver has six shots. It takes a while for the big man to point it at me, still in shock at how I downed all of his goons in less then ten seconds. He fires, but a shield is up again. One shot, two, three. I can tell he wants to survive at all costs, I can see it in his eyes. Four, five, the shield breaks, weaker. Six...That hurts. Straight into the shoulder. Left. Not where he was aiming, it was missfired by the blast. But still... that hurts like a motherfucker. Im clutching my shoulder by the time I fall to my knees. Something... stirs in me. The pain doesn't stop, but flows differently. I look up to see the man still in fear, holding his empty gun with a shaking hands. He's scared of me.They all should be.A second form takes place in me. The power I usually command from around me envelops my entire body in it's light blue glow while a black smoke rises from it, steaming the liquid. I probably could be mistaken for being on fire, and I might as well be right now. I'm really pissed off at him right now.I remember a video that explained the physics behind a video game character kicking a soccer ball so hard it split in three. If that power of a kick connected with a head, there wouldn't be a head left.I felt like trying that, with my fist. What I got was a bloody mess.Mission accomplished, ish. I still need to better focus myself next time.(4/6)
>>27062625"Ya sure you just don't wanna grab the other bitches back at base? They'd give ya a better run." My Incubator remarks to me through after I had given the car keys to the woman and gone back up to the rooftops. "Actually, that crazy-ass power is makin' ya crazy as hell for blood huh? My bad.""It's not really your fault, Eightball" I reply, still feeling my left shoulder even after the bullet and the would vanished. Happens every time I switch to that form. "I just need more time with this. Once the power was given, I became responsible for it. Soon i'll have this figured out.""And you're doin that by whackin whatever purps get unlucky?" I stare at the cell-phone for a while, his . "Fuckin whacko, girl, but you do what ya wanna do. I expect all my bitches to deliver, even if it makes jelly-jam outa peoples heads.""You really need to get better at making jokes, but that one wasn't bad." Hell, that at least gets a grin from me."You think I'd be crackin jokes at ya, bitch? I ain't no fucking comedian." There's a creaking noise coming from his end of the line, along with snickering. "But nah, all I want is all my bitches to always deliver. I'm expectin good shit from you, Gina girl."(5/6)
>>27062632I can't help but chuckle darkly at this. Its a small secret about "Eightball" that I figured out when I got in; he's really interested in the wishes girls make when they join. Most have the same-old wishes of "I want to beat up bad guys" or "I want to make the world a better place for everyone". Hearing those things again and again gets a bit annoying after a while, and I can remember him expecting the same from me."I want to take the pain from those who don't deserve it, and give it to those who do." That's the only time I've truly seen him surprised. But he always gives out extra for wishes like that, where the more interesting the wish, the better the result he tries to give out."Eighty, I don't even know if I'll even have time for that. I'm working as hard as I can and yet-""The fuck you sayin, Gina?" The tone in his voice changes. He seems more interested then confused, probably because we've been talking enough that he manages to understand me a bit. I probably have more trouble understanding him. "You're becomin a rockstar among the Officio, especially after you wasted two witches at that whacked-up museum. When the other bitches see you fight, they don't even know what the fuck they're lookin at. You've been goin off the charts, so why you gotta get yourself down like that? You're one scary bitch, ya know?""I know, its just" I know what I want to say, but a million words a second won't do. "It's because it's not really about power, form or achievments. It's not my peers, co workers, friends of what others think of me. In the end...I still don't know how deep down the rabbit hole goes."(6/6)
>>27062623Hahaha, well! Sort of, but I also didn't want to spend too much time in inactivity!
>>27062658I understand. You feed off shadowruns, so having so many large breaks lately has left you starving.
>>27062682Have some more, then.>Wendy's mission is to kill Ruri>Ruri knows this, which is why she specifically wanted Wendy's ex to protect her
>>27062658Thanks for the threadhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Questnow archived for your reading pleasure, goodnight gentlemen.
>>27062727Anon please, I considered that a while ago. A part of me still suspects Wendy is the prophet.
>>27062738Like how Pinky revived her to kill Mami and in a way to make us choose?
>>27062572NECO Arcueid confirmed for not magical. We can cut her a deal if she's still useful.
>>27062840No, she's confirmed for being not magical when she met Sayaka. She could have contracted with the Tenth since then.
http://pastebin.com/u/_That_guyPastebin is up, and I'm open to comments/criticism about the write up. Its my first one so I hope to improve!
>>27062856I dout she could resist it, but I don't think she ever was contracted in the first place. She wants the world to know about magical girls, QB isn't worried, so he probably knows of her and think's shes some two-bit crazy tabloids reporter in the first place. He could contract her if he wanted though I suspect. Maybe if we catch her, we could make the Qube contract her and use her as a callidus. She's sneaky enough already.I can imagine her wish, "I want the world to know about magical girls."Two weeks later, she has the leading role in a live-action MG soap opera.
>>27062572Sayaka sure gets around. If NECO had red hair I'd be getting suspicious.
>>27062920Chiaki-chan, I have something to tell you.What is it NECO...I...I...love Mami-san. We went out, we got drinks, and then one thing lead to another...No, no, say it aint so!Yes, I...buttered her pancakes.NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAlso she's pregnant
>>27062980Neco's blonde. See >>27062527, she's Arcueid.
>>27062984Stop looking through the production notes, nya.
>>27062639Hey new writeguy I like your character concept and basically anything that involves Eightball is always great but first person is the worst thing
>>27063018So, third person next time?
>>27063053Not that guy, but sure. Experiment, try new things that fit. And write more.
>>27063018Wendy's writeups are first-person.
>>27063003Go back to Chirpee and write more embarrassing things about people, you thieving cat.
>>27063003More profiles when? Or was that all you got?
>>27063003!You can't stop it now, ayN
>>27063068I feel more comfortable writing in first person, it's what I've done with nearly every story/fanfic/RP I have ever written. I think I just need to flex my character more so she is a bit easier to write.>>27063097 Ha ha ha!
>>27063070Those are more of a stream of consciousness thing, which works really well for her character. This jumps around more as a first-person-omniscient talking about what the other characters can see/feel rather than just how they appear to the narrator.Which maybe kinda works with the magical empathy power angle but could be better executed I guess.All in all still not bad.
>>27063070First-person writing takes more experience.
