Welcome, Welcome my delusional, devious, and determined gentlemen.It is I, the glorious Maashiima that tells this tale tonight! Alas, this is a part that not even Alice did witness.Previously: The world of wonder falls to ruin at the conclusion of my dear brother Faefnir's play.The Queen of Black descends unto the stage and unravels the very fabric of this world that is the Red Queen's dementia.Now, it is but Faefnir, Madeleine, and myself against the Mad Queen of Red, and the Black Queen of Devils.Who now will take the stage?I pity the fool that finds out.Rules of Wonderland.. As they are in dissaray>http://pastebin.com/RPD8fGbxFaefnir's ability.>http://pastebin.com/rHJuHW12And his tale unto the present.>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Akuma%20QuestRejoice demons, this may very well be the end.
"Off with her head!" You and Maddie call out at once, commanding the Devil Queen as the two of you clasp both hands together, pointing them to the Red Queen.The Devil Queen looks back to you, turning slowly, her eyes like pits of coal, black and dead, devoid of life, yet full of beautyWith a bat of her eyes, lashes like Spider's legs," And who do you think that you two command? Wonderland Rule #2048 All whom command the Devil Queen...""Vetoed." The Red Queen utters the word with a casual stare as she slowly walks around the black earth of this decrepit place.Her crimson smile bearing a faint glow, even here."I will tell you of something, you pair of demons.. and pitiful Noah. This one now has a priority in my mind... If you assist me in destroying her, I swear upon the name of the Almighty God, our Lord and Father in heaven... That I will begrudgingly permit you to leave this place this once..."She stops, her smile fading into a statuesque stare,"This one takes absolute precedence. I cannot tolerate this... thing.""How dare you call me that." The Black Queen sneers, twisting what contents you have in your stomach at her sick beauty," I should offer a similar dealing then. Aid me in killing this Innocence, and I will see that you all leave here, unharmed."The Red Queen shakes her head slowly," You should not believe this one, for she is the maker of lies... She will betray you...> Side with the Red> Side with the Black> Force them through the mirror...> (Other)You stand before the Innocence and the Devil..
Damn you, I missed the last thread, nothing important could have happened, right?...Fuck.We summoned what into this world? Is the black queen born from the darkness trying to kill us? Also, I am not clear on one thing, is the Red Queen part of Alice or what?>>27130231Best option is locking them in a mirror in some form of eternal struggle.Second best choice would be to offer the Red Queen a rather raw deal: We get her head out of wonderland and nothing else if she fights on our side.
>>27130231So is calling out a third queen cool with everyone, or....?
>>27130289Because I was thinking that it's too much of a hassle to deal with these other two ladies, and I'd rather much get a third opinion on this matter.
>>27130269The Black Queen was created from the dark thing pursuing you infecting Wonderland and given form through your creation engine.The Red Queen was an exorcist that killed the previous Noah of Dreams, Alice's Predecessor.What you see before you now though?The human is gone, this Red Queen is only the Innocence.
>>27130289Third queen?>>27130231Also, what happened with the Jabberwockee or rather the Jabberwocheux as my friend used to call him.
>>27130310>The human is goneMentally speaking? The innocence took over what was left of her maddened mind?
>>27130321Her humanity, or her soul. I raised it up in the last thread and Maaaaashiiiiiimaaaaa said it was possible.
>>27130289Hang on, from the previous thread I suggested we make our OWN rules. Rules than prevent them from doing their thing and make it so we can handily kick their asses here. Fafnir's 10 commandments so to speak.As for the third Queen, I have an idea. First, we need to make the rules.. THEN Maddy and Ourselves grab the two opposites and force them into a burning hot embrace. Apply LOTS of pressure with Maddy's strength and our gravity, plenty of heat, and from that... we make a queen made ENTIRELY OF DIAMONDS!Then we get Alice back here, give her a mallet, call her the queen of Clubs AND SMASH THE DIAMOND QUEEN TO BITS! Then we can use her eyes as the diamonds for our wedding rings!
>>27130321Alice got locked out of wonderland during an intermission excursion she took to save the family- Faefnir's family.The Black Queen here has locked her out.Awaiting your next decision.
>>27130231"The both of you seem about equal in power, and yet you are dictating terms to me despite the fact that we can tip the scales in the favor of either of you.Black Queen, you seem far more amenable to working together. I want far more than just to leave here unharmed. Should you wish for me to aid you against the Red Queen you shall work with us, you shall give Wonderland back to Alice, and we will crush our enemies together."
>>27130289Yes obviously the solution to our creations going rogue is to make more of them. Preferably we enstate Madeline as queen of clubs then procede to marry her and call rank on everyone else. We declare Maashima our to contribute precisely Jack to our kingdom and have Madnir be the ace of clubs. We then procede to declare ourselves to have won by virtue of being a royal flush and shoot the other queens to the moon.this is me going for an utterly insane Hail Mary plan that works by the logic of Wonderland. If nothing else I really want to declare Maashima to be contributing Jack.
>>27130355Thats an incredible idea. Lets make some rules.Rules ideas: The only Queen of wonderland is Alice and no being in Wonderland shall get in her way.Upon contact, opposites negates each other.>>27130423Rule idea:While a Queen is powerful, only a king can wield true power.
>>27130355I'd be fine with making our own rules as well. Those other things you suggested, though? Eeeeeeehhhhhhh.....>>27130397I'm willing to attempt to make our own rules. Something reasonable, instead of an instant "I can kick your asses" thing.First off, a rule to get Alice back in here.Madir's Rule#1: If you wanna deal in Wonderland, get Alice back in here!.....man.
>>27130450Some of the rules I had last thread were. "Only Faefnir and his family can make rules." "No one is stronger than Faefnir and his family here(includes both families" "Faefnir and his family can enter and leave wonderland as they please. All rules preventing such are null and void.", ect.
>>27130397Do I still have time to post an utterly /mad/, not entirely well formed idea?
So, about the rule-making...Last thread, the Black Queen attempted to make a second rule after her first that abolished most of Wonderland.The Red Queen Vetoed that rule.Therefore.. Let us presume that to make a new Wonderland rule... You need one of them to side with you to carry the motion.>>27130546Yes.
>>27130569Oh! Rule suggestion.Rule Something: If you want to negotiate with the Queen, all involved must be present.I'm still not giving up on the idea of creating a third Queen!
>>27130569What if we made Maddie the queen of Club? Could she approve our laws?So, we essentially have to side with one Queen. >>27130607Best idea yet. We could also summon back the Queen original soul and trap it into an akuma shell.
>>27130623Yes. I wanted to summon the Queen's soul. But I didn't consider making her into an Akuma....Her soul's suffering.....it must be exquisitely aged.....
>>27130623Wait, I am an idiot. Could we put the soul of the Red Queen in Maddie, effectively making her a Queen?
>>27130623>>27130644>>27130645Or wait.How about we use her soul as a third power source for.....Madir?
>>27130664Good lord in Heaven, be you eternally cursed. I hate that name. Lets just call our combined form Bondomu.We could make our combined form a queen...or a king. The king of Wonderland.
Alright.Roll 1d100.Need 5 for chance.I'll throw something nice together...
Rolled 21>>27130713Rolling to defeat the devil in a game of luck
>>27130664...yeeeeeah no. In case you have forgoten, exorcists have been VERY BAD NEWS when put into Akumas. Especially when it comes to Maddy. We almost lost her the last time, let's not repeat ourselves.In the end, we do need to side with one of them, or get majority... right now it's 2 and 2.. wait a minute, what about Mashima?
Rolled 13>>27130764We nearly lost her because te innocence stuck to her, but I see your point. In this case, however, I doubt the human soul would still connect the innocence, considering how much it made her suffer
>>27130764>what about Maashiima?What about Maashiima?
>>27130546Whatever, here comes the brainstorming (for the love of all whatever I hope there's someone in here that knows more about cards than me). First we need to draw the human "red queen" back through the mirror as the Queen of clubs (fucking sell out the Pity to stall for time if necessary. Sorry bro, buy us five or ten minutes if you feel like getting out of here, ever. Pretty sure the Innocence just plans to trap us alive for eternity, the devil will cheat at take your soul). Then, to get her passed the continually self inflicted emotional trauma that we just physically subjected her to via the Iron Maiden, we have to first convert her into the Queen of Wands (Tarot) where she should show up as the inverted form. (If not, convince her to act out on the vengeance she clearly craves against the innocence which should cause her to invert anyway) Next we have to convince her that the vengeance she craves should be directed at the Innocence, hopefully that will work since she's mostly primed already, we were just the push to act. Here's where it continues to be tricky. The queen of clubs has a black cat, in wonderland, the Cheshire cat. That thing should be able to go get Alice. (this might be a horrible flaw in the plan) In the meantime, we need to invert the Devil (not in her form of the Queen of Spades but the actual Devil card) and focus on her effects of release from the bondage of material things." That should help break the innocence' attachment to the Queen of Wands and even the playing field. Personally I still think we should just throw the Devil out of wonderland at that point since I have know idea how to kill her. Or we could stat by ganging up against her then betray the innocence by summoning Club Girl. Dunno. Ran out of time to brainstorm today.
Rolled 80>>27130713Why do I have a feeling using a Devil's Luck charge on this test would be worse than a critfail?
Rolled 51>>27130784>>27130783>>27130768>>27130750>>27130728Well, may I be the first to say it: crap.
>>27130764Innocence.Exorcist souls are perfectly useful as power sources.
Rolled 18>>27130799I have to agree with you. Fucking /tg/ dice, not a single roll above 50 on 5 dice.
>>27130713Sorry for the big block of text, but here >>27130796
>>2713079950 is passable. We're rolling for chance, anyway.
Rolled 30>>27130815No shit, since last week, the /tg/ dice has been low rolling a lot. Wonder if its broken.
>>27130788Well, wouldn't it be a pity if the red queen's plans to get wonderland after aaaall this time is thwarted by two no names? And the black queen? Why, part of her is from a great darkness that has probably waited EONS to have a means to get out and we are just going to nip her bud before it gets a chance to shine. Such a pity.. two rising stars brought low at their prime, going from riches and queendom to dying like paupers and in rags. Such.. pitiful deaths for them. Bet that gets your pity nice and hard.
>>27130796That.. That is an insane plan... >ManiacallylaughingFaefnir
Rolled 51>>27130796Thats an oddly logical idea.First, we have to rule that all beings are tied to the tarot deck.When a being enters Wonderland, a card is rawn representing his true nature, retroactively.Then we can rule that she is the inverted devil, loosening her grip on material things. We could also tie her to an harmless card.
>>27130978The problem is the Red Queen's veto power. We need a majority of existing queens (we can probably consider ourselves+Maddie to be Alice's proxy) to overrule that. Which is why we need the queen of clubs in addition to our self if we want our rules to stick.
>>27130978Would lead to some interesting representations. For example while we and Maddie are most likely assigned the lovers Madnir would probably get temperance. I would need to consult sources for most of the correspondences of the cards. Good job on proposing crossing over with Persona in concept in a way that actually makes sense. Also Bondomu is now the Noah of social links.
Rolled 89>>27131098I am actually right now assigning persona Tarots to various character.PersonaMindCaptcha: junes
I've gotten some written thus far.. though the number of solutions that you all have come up with.. baffling.. Simply baffling.I'd like a concise vote, as I can alter what happens next in my passage to whatever you'd desire.> Bring Tarot to the world of wonderland as illustrated here>>27130796> Side with one of the two to defeat the other.> Create/Summon a third Queen> Fight the two of them as is.Link here please for your vote.Only those linked will be counted.
Oh, and if (big if) we decide to act as Alice's direct proxies I suggest that we take the roll of Regent (can't actually claim the title of queen, so we just are temporarily assuming her portfolio) of Coins and have Maddie become the Regent of Pentacles. I like the different aspects of the same truth parallel there.
[x]eye of truth on the black queen, even as we help her. What the hell has been chasing us and is it even an enemy[x]bake bread we'll give it as a gift. [x]consider analogies to Hearts/Old Maid and poker and how such could be used to our advantage. Also remember that defeating 5 enemies makes you an Ace.
>>27131302>>27131301I say we bring in the tarot. It will give us more flexibility to play with laws and hidden meaning.
>>27131301Well, I wrote the tarot insanity, but I'd suggest that if we go that route we start by summoning the third queen and making sure she teams up with us instead either other player before opening the delicious can of extra squirmy wormy goodness.
>>27131098How is that to start? Arcana 0: The Fool: The family Arcana 1: The Magician: Schwere Arcana 2: The High Priestess: Flowers Arcana 3: The Empress: Kama Arcana 4: The Emperor: Ivan Arcana 5: The Hierophant: Maddie's original soul Arcana 6: The Lovers: Faefnir and Maddie, as a couple Arcana 7: The Chariot: The Asher Arcana 8: Justice: Arthur Arcana 9: The Hermit: Morgan Arcana 10: Fortune: /tg/ dice Arcana 11: Strength: Armbrust Arcana 12: The Hanged Man: Edward Arcana 13: Death: The Doctor Arcana 14: Temperance: Bondomu Arcana 15: The Devil: The darkness Arcana 16: The Tower: Maashima Arcana 17: The Star: Wendel Arcana 18: The Moon: Alice Arcana 19: The Sun: Maddie Arcana 20: Judgement:Faefnir Arcana 21: The World: The Noah
>>27131433At minimum Fortune is dead on.
Perhaps we should switch to chess briefly. We realize that we have been nothing but a pawn this whole time and then proceed to walk on over to (insert enemy of choice here) and then promote ourselves to queen. The major thing though is getting one of Bondomu admin rights to wonderland at least temporarily so that we can excise the devil and then take down the red Queen. Please note that ideally we would like to crown both Bondomu queens so that we have a controlling share of the suits. If we cannot get Bondomu as two queens then for the good of wonderland we shall put Maashima in a dress and have him be the fourth queen.
>>27131472I think Maashima would like to play dress up. Also, remember the disguise rule? Does that work when you disguise yourself as someone else? Do you become them then?
>>27131433Looks fairly decent but almost all of my Tarot knowledge comes from Jojo, a couple of persona fanfics, and Mage the Awakening supplemented with the occasional Googling.
>>27131509So do I.>>27131509Thats an idea. What if we disguise ourselves as a Queen? Wouldn't that not fool wonderland itself?
>>27131509Yes we must obtain the majority vote in wonderland via the power of really bad wigs. We all disguise ourselves as queens of various suits and have a go at it. Anyway I'm off for the night due to living on east coast and having to go to school.
>>27131579eeerrrr meant to quote this first >>27131534
>>27131301as a late voter, I also vote for bringing the Tarot deck into this. that gives 4 more queens! wonderland is gonna be so chaotic!
>>27131702Chaos is simply logic different from yours.
You and Maddie stand between the two Queens, retaining your mutual composure. Within the wasteland of wicked and bent trees that Wonderland has become, a moon shines down on you from above, devoid of the luster that the real thing would have.Madeleine's golden hair takes on a lustrous blue glow in this place. The Black Queen's inky black hair ebbs demented shadow, swallowing whatever light that bears down on her. She is like staring into a deep black pit, rather than a sentient.Her spiderleg eyelashes flick at you, and a hand of slick black nails entreats upon her face as she stares at you thoughtfully with chrysalis eyes,"What will it be Faefnir? Madeleine? Have you two pissants made up your mind? I grow tired of waiting."The Red Queen, now like a glowing, ephemeral sun seems to radiate warmth into this world. A red glow of doom, desire, and blissful hatred,"Now, now you wretched whore. Why should they respond to such a wretched manner?" The Red Queen giggles, much like a girl, her eyes a deep crimson red now,"I'll be purging your horrid existence soon enough. I can barely stand your stench from here."Your eyes turn to Maddie, the two of you communicating through your inherent bond," Indeed. We have-" Maddie follows," Kept you waiting for too long." She smiles."We would like to bring a third Queen here!""One that the two of you should be rather acquainted with!"You and Maddie clasp your hands together once more, amassing the power of creation between the two of you, and expanding it into something larger as your minds give it form.The black pits that are the Black Queen's eyes widen as the two of you are obviously up to something. The Black meets gazes with the Red and they both look forward,"Wonderland Rule#1030: Alice may not be summoned to Wonderland. To do so will result in Failure."The Red Queen flashes a smile as smooth as liquid red,"Approved."
"If only that's what we had in mind!"The two of you open your hands, and the fragments of a woman once-gone, return once more.Bearing brown hair with a tint of green, the smell of a forest, and a coat of furred leather..The human that would become the Red Queen returns, her presence bearing an earthly peace unlike the rightous wrath of the red, or the discordant misery of the spade. This is the earthly club.The woman feels her face. Gingerly, as though she would break free from this dream at a moment's notice.The Red Queen smiles, uppity and condescending,"Oh, well.. Look at what the Cat and the Lizard have dragged in.. Who would've thought I'd see my old self in one piece again?""I... I.." The Queen of Club's eyes go wide, she looks back to you and Maddie whom wear your own elegant smiles.You offer a hand to the newest Queen,"My dear Queen, I believe that I require your assistance.""No, I cannot let this pass! Wonderland Rule#1031: There is only one Queen in the world of wonder, all others-""Vetoed." The Red Queen clucks her tongue," So, you have divided things further with three queens..It matters not, wretched demon.." She extends a red silken hand to the Queen of Clubs," Comest unto me once more my love.. I must reunite with that pretty little brain of yours.."The Queen of Clubs drops her arms, and begins to walk towards the Red...> It's your move..
>>27131729you. I like the way you think.
>>27130931Maashiima pls, use the nicer one at least.I have time to do some quick doodles, any requests?
>>27131737Eye of truth on Reddie? Unravel the illusion!
>>27131737I'd say we use our creation engine to create a curse upon her that rejects innocence.The curse of the unrepentant sinner, that separate one from the light of God forever.>>27131744You tell me that every thread Baka.>>27131812I love that doodle. Makes me snicker. Get it?
>>27131737"Oh, my Queen, surely you remember all the pain that red has brought you. the sadness, the insanity, the loss of... Innocence."
>>27131737"Do you truly wish to reunite with her?It is she that tore you away from your home. It is she that tore you away from those who loved you. It is she that replaced those around you with those who feared and hated you. It is she that ripped your sanity from you. Do not go to her so she may abuse and hurt you once more. Come to us my dear, Queen of the earthly peace, for we are the farmer and the baker, we harvest the fruits of the earth and nourish others, we are alike."
We still need to finangle this into "story of innocence lost" and "staring out into a wasteland populated by only memories, and soon not even those" or something like that
>>27131886>Madeleine in her bunny costume.ftfy
>>27131842This. Plus a partial Eye of truth on the Innocence. And I think we can bend the Mirror into a shield to reflect the Innocence's power back upon the wielder (think medusa slaying 101).
>>27131886Ok. Last I heard she's changed her looks again, can I get a current description?
>>27131886Wait, isn't she still Lion/Lizard themed or am I thinking of another Family member?
>>27131875>>27131842Ya know, I am not exactly sure words can compete with an innocence specialized in mind domination.We could always try to make up a rule about queens not being able to control each other.>>27131919I kinda like this idea.BTW Maashima, what is the innocence called? I am merely curious.
>>27131961good point...IDEA!!!!let's try to manufacture the curse! THIS IS TOTALLY THE TIME TO DO IT!
>>27131961Probably "The Crown"
>>27131961"The Red Queen"It's a parasitic type that resides in the Exorcist's brain. It causes their hair to fall out and replaces it with thin hairlike tendrils.
>>27132014Tendrils? You mean that those red things are not hairs...I guess cutting her head would be equally useless.Any other idea to stop the Queen of Club to reunite with the Red Queen?
>>27132014We need to bake a bread that will let the Club Queen think independently of the parasite, but I'm not sure if the one I'm thinking of will keep her on our side (enlightenment).
>>27131927L3V3L W MadeleineHead to toe in midnight black armor with veins of golden energy running through the chassis. Stomach is exposed to reveal metallic fem-absShe has tassets that continue on with a golden cloth that runs all the way down either side of her hip like a half-skirt.She bears a mane of Golden fibers that runs down her back. Her helm bears the features of a feline and saber-like teeth while appearing particularly humanoid due to her herculean model.Overall, while she has a feminine shape, she bears slightly larger arms and legs.
>>27132053let's try to make her into an Akuma!that is my next brilliant-100%-can't-fail-plan.TM
>>27132131My plan was to bring her back as an akuma, not make her one after. If she is still only the soul of the Red Queen without a true physical body, we can have a shot at this. The problem being that it will be a level 1 Akuma.We could try fusing with Maddie and absorb the soul within our fused core.
>>27132131I would have suggested this a long time ago if I'd didn't think that 1 - we needed a second soul and 2 - the queens wouldn't just make a No New Akuma rule.
>>27132175>the queens wouldn't just make a No New Akuma rule.No, because that would be boring. We could make a rule about that. You can't make two laws in a row or you can uou can't make two laws in a row to prevent someone from taking action immediatly.
>>27132122Armored, eh? That makes things easier for me.Here's the base sketch for the body type, I don't draw "ze ladies" often, so I figured I'd see if everything is in the right place before continuing. Look good?
>>27131875Seconded. Our original plan was to break down the Queen's persona to disrupt her control on wonderland. We have the know-how to do it again.I also agree that we would be considered Alice's proxy, and thus the Queen of Diamonds.Black will agree with us to kill Red, and if we can get Clubs to remember that she hates Red, we'll have her too. Then we use Club's vote to take on Black. Or we let them fight and kill whoever wins.
>>27132253Nicely done.I am grasping at straws here, but I wouldn't give her bangs. It would make her look more masculine to have slicked back hair, as she is supposed to be nearly androgynous.btw I love the cross nipples.
possible ideasThe red queen has shed her disguise, therefore she must appear in her true form, outside the excorcist's body. Wonderland Rule #32: A person is in disguise when they are and never otherwisePessimism: You know, knowing Alice, I wouldn't be surprised if the entire process of making "rules of wonderland" thing was some sort of cruelly ironic trap. Probably binding souls to her like akuma do.Optimism: it's a good thing she likes US and probably took measures to protect US from that.Creation engine: throne, walk behind it. Be the man behind the throne.creation engine: table, eat eat eat grow grow grow smash smash smash
>>27131737I propose Wonderland Rule #1032, Queens cannot order other Queens personally. Level the playing field.
>>27132352Edit: We let the three of them fight and take on whoever comes out on top. We're a kill everyone type of girl, and we have no reason to let any of these nutter Queens run around in Alice's Wonderland.
>>27132373>cross nipplesWhat? oh.Just placeholder to get things in the right location. Plus she'll have a helmet, so that'll deal with that.
>>27132402Just a placeholder? Too bad, it was a blasphemously good idea to put crosses there.>>27132385I like that, but red and black may veto it.
You step forward after the newly made Queen of Clubs, Maddie following your move like a mirror."Fairest Queen of Earthen Green, surely you remember what pain red brings."Clubs halts, stopping abruptly,"P-pain... She..."Maddie's lips curl in time with yours," Yes indeed, she tore you from your home. Away from the great many bonds you'd sown."The Queen of Red pulls her outreached hand inward slowly,"Come to them my lovely creature. The demons speak only lies."Her voice purrs, dripping with seduction,"They speak not of the love that god has for you.. Come.."You cluck your tongue,"The love of god only brings misery." You and Maddie circle around, block the path of Clubs, her unfocused eyes beginning to look towards the two of you. "Do not let her abuse you again."You and Maddie extend your own hands in invitation."We are of the Farmer and Baker. We harvest the fruit and nourish others. We- are alike."She smiles to the two of you with some hesitation, and places her hands into your own."Enough of this! I have grown tired of these games!" You turn back to see The Red Queen frowning with anger for the first time. A defined sneer disrupting the chemistry of her face, the wrath of god pouring out through her very being in form and radiance.She throws out her hands to you and Maddie, palms open,"I shall crush the two of you into dust, and be done with you!" She laughs cruelly, cackling like a witch in her malice.An invisible force grips you and Maddie, lifting you up into the chilling dead air of the desolate wonderland.The Black Queen simply stands by to watch.
>>27132439Only need one queen to side, and also means Black doesn't get mind controlled by Red, it's a win for her to support.
"So, is this all still part of the show? I must say that I had been enjoying it up until this unnecessary violence came up and ruined it.From a five star performance to a 3/5.. Average. Just above the barely passable two. Yet only to make one think that it is still worth observing.A pitiful thing."

>>27132670well... At this point, I don't think it would help us... at all... since the dark presence is RIGHT THERE AND WANTS TO KILL US.what happened to the dark presence, man, we used to be such bros.
>>27132700Nothing tells us the dark presence is actually the same as the dark queen. She may simply have been made from the dark presence as a twisted reflection of the Red Queen.
>>27132670Of course. She's right there, so it can't very well get any closer.
>>27132733You raise a good point. I wonder what will happen if we use devil luck in her presence.
Rolled 4 + 14Next. A roll for resisting the crushing force.I shall roll for Maddie.The DC is 23Your modifier is +5
>>27132732hey, I'm just being pessimistic here.
>>27132670We've never shown common sense before, so I would say HELL YEAH SON!>>27132700The devil's a bitch, I guess. Or it's more like we brought her into the world, and our interests have finally gone in different directions so we've outlived our purpose to her....what if the dark presence is actually a Noah that's been horribly affected by their memory?

>>27132771>>27132778It's happening. Oooh yiss.(what does DC stand for?)
Rolled 17>>27132778It never said it would kill her.Shouldn't she get another roll like us?>>27132800Difficulty check
>>27132788alas, the fool forgot the modifier. I don't think it counts...
>>27132771>>27132778Optimism is never the Answer.>>27132816It is so. If I counted the ones without, it would nullify the 20. And alas with the agreeance of the last roll? Devil's luck is currently off.
>>27132838Oh my. So we crit straight up eh? Unfortunate.
>>27132838So, if we ignore the 1 we can get the 20, which is a crit without devils luck?
>>27132838So at least we didn't fail. we crit succeeded!HOORAY PESSIMISM... somehow, that doesn't seem right
>>27132884>>27132838In that case, can we use our bond to turn Maddie's fail and our critical into 2 succeed?
>>27132916That's a really good idea. I like this. We won't crit, but we go in as a duo.
>>27132916Shhhh... It'll all be okay...
>>27132955I really, really, really don't like this reply.
>>27132916That would work for me if it gave out synch a +1, other wise I'd rather we just use the crit to physically support Maddie and prevent the strain from injuring her.
>>27132967Well, we agreed on getting crushed as being the method of our transformation....
A "Lion helmet" is proving difficult to look good without also being cheesy, but I think this one suits her fighting style well and is also good at being "Herculean".
Let's physically incarnate the memory of Noah
>>27133064Thats an idea. We can use this opportunity to ride our crit and fuse with Maddie, possibly give ourself the appearance of a twisted reflection of >>27133116this this this this
>>27133107I love it. I can see where a mane would come out from underneath.. That's awesome.. I like the touch of the stigmata crown as well.
>>27133107Just have a mane spliing out from the helmet and it will be close enough to being lion-like.
You bear the brunt of the crushing force, forcing it back as much as you can as it threatens to destroy you. With what resilience your body possesses, you resist being crushed into nothing yet...You feel the bonds upon you weakening and Maddie Cry out in agony even as she resists with her golden aura. Her power fails under the unseen force of the Innocence. She lets out a scream as her body creaks."Maddie, no!" You roar, burning away the flesh of your human form, running saw-like blades that grind away at the force. "Faef...nir..." You feel her pain, you feel her agony, and yet... You can do nothing about it.Maashiima brings a hand to his face, to brush away the tears that have built up,"The plight of my brother and sister Noah, whose bond is stronger than the realms of life and death..."His body begins to accumulate an unearthly power, Dark Matter warping the very fabric of space around him," Yet unable to assist the other in their time of greatest need. I bear the burden that I must bear, taking the weight of their lives upon my conscience as I pity them."He brings his hands together, as if to offer a prayer. Though not unto divinity, he looks to his own self for answers," For there is nothing that God in all his power would do to save them."He parts his hands and brings them together with the collision of metal," Their aid shall be received from the power of the devil himself. The Irony of God is that he has all the power to do nothing. Therefore. with all of my power I shall act."
>>27133107I know it has support and in all fairness it looks good, but I'm having a hard time switching off the image of that lion helmed gladiator form "Gladiator." That old retired guy they brought back to fight Maximus.
>>27133257Wait, is Masshiima going to...help us? He was supposed to hate us.For fuck sake, did we manage to level up our social link with him enough that he doesn't completely despise us?
>>27133257[pitying intensifies]Maashima turned out to be kind of a bro, didn't he? We may have to rethink our grudge against him. He is family after all.
>>27133311I think he might still be crazy/high from that loaf of bread we baked him.
>>27133327I think he's about to heroic sacrifice...someone else. Don't know who yet, but it won't be him.
>>27133257I just can't hate Maashiima. Not when I think of him as Kirei.I wonder if he likes spicy food....
Goddammit. Minor Arcana probably can't trump Major Arcana. We should have just asserted outselves as The Lovers and then proceeded to ignore all the queens' rules.
>>27133401We could make him some spicy bread! Tasty spicy bread!
The Red Queen glares red at Maashiima, incredulous at his blatant affront to her master,"Filthy Noah, you dare speak ill of the creator within my presence?""Indeed I do, for with my memory, I am called to do all that he would not." Maashiima lunges at the Red Queen, as she shifts her attention from the two of you, casting you to the side.Maddie falls to the blackened and cracked earth with a chorus of loose and broken parts, her oil bleeds out, wetting the ground with its glistening sheen.Maashiima tears through the force that the Innocence grips him with, approaching like a spectre of death that has found its target, his golden eyes gleam with a certain void of mercy. The dismissed force tears into the earth at either of his sides, and the Queen of Spades only stands idly by as the two clash, the earth rending under the force of their might. The Red Queen's invisible power that bends both mind and body, against the absolute resolve and sadness that Maashiima employs as his own power. A heavenly Queen dances with the embodiment of sadness, condescension and grief. Neither yielding. In all of her evil intent, The Black Queen watches. Calm, and waiting, like a predator preparing to snatch the life of the weakened victor. Her eyes fall upon you for a moment, her face still, and gaze empty of all other thought but scorn and hunger. It is lifted however, as she focuses upon the two demi-gods clashing before her.
You rise to your feet, your body none the worse for wear.. Yet Maddie.. You see that she had taken most of the force, the aggression. The Red Queen had crushed her as though to crush your own heart... She did. "Madeleine.." You fall before her, your bits of wing positioned as though to hide her. You touch her face and turn her head towards you.One of Maddie's Oculars focuses upon you with their golden glow, the other dim and out of order. She chokes up oil as it drips out of her helm,"Faef..nir... I...I..."One of her crushed arms haltingly reaches for your face, fighting against the critical damage. You touch her hand, her sweet hand that is yours,"Madeleine.. Please.. We'll get you out of here.. We'll fix you.. Good as new all over again. We can do that!"Her hand weakly pushes against yours and lays flat against the hot metal of your helm's cheek,"I.. Lo..ve..ou.. I.. Al...ys... ill.."Her Golden eye flickers.> (You have control.)
>>27133592Make sure her core is intact.
>>27133592Analyze what parts of her are broken.Visualize the parts needed to fix her!DO IT NOW!
>>27133592The queens are busy, will a healing baguette into existence and get it in her mouth stat!
>>27133592Combine!Get the Queen of Clubs to help.>One of pair cannot die so long as the other still won't lie.
>>27133592Gatai. Take her into us, have her crushing embrace take us into her. Create a loving bond that can never be broken! We are the Noah of bonds and creation in a land of imagination where no laws hold control!
>>27133592"I know Maddie, I love you too, I will always love you and I will not let the Red Whore tear us away from each other, our Bond is too strong for that.We are united in life, united in death, and not a force in the world can take us from each other."See what's broken, see what is needed to fix her, we can Creation Engine it up if need be.Another possibility, give her a kiss and go full Bondomu.
>>27133592I think now would be an excellent time to hammer out our method of transforming into Madnir, the Memory of Bonds.Either Creation Engine GATTAI.....or perhaps Ravenous Body embrace of eternal love?
Rolled 73>>27133592Oh damn it, this is the third fucking this happens. This is getting old damn it.We draw everything in and we combine with her to form Bondomu.>>27133648Can't exactly use the engine right now, our better half is dying.>>27133670Pretty much this.
>>27133670She doesn't have the strength to do that Anon. Her hydraulics are leaking badly, there's no strength in her cables and her engine is dying.
>>27133592OH GEE ANONS, let's not use our crit to block Maddie's damage! Now she's fucking exploded.>>27133592[x] Combine with her. She'll be safe for the moment, and anything that's been done to her we can fix after the fight.[stupid smile through our tears] Hey Maddie, I want you inside me. Fuse with her and paint the world red with our fury that she has been hurt.
>>27133711Which is why we get the Earthen Queen to help.
>>27133711Well then the solution is obvious. We give her what she needs from ourselves. She is our other half and would do the same for us.
>>27133592I think it's time to play a little song before we eat...http://youtu.be/Tj664-o2jxI
>>27133726Why are you angry at us? No one was opposed to the idea, right? Duke just didn't accept it.
>>27133752I loved this. Creepy to taste.The face of Allen and Co was hilarious.
>>27133592"I love you to Maddie, always."If she can't simultaneously kill us we can't become Bondomu with her, right?
>>27133784I'm not really mad, it's just... sheeit son, that's Maddie there. That's our girl. I guess I'll have to redirect my rage at a certain RED WHORE!
>>27133807Well, we always could tear our her core and integrate it with our own. It'd get the creation over up and running again and probably lock us out of Bondomu-mode, but we'd get a stat boost of some kind for being whole again.
>>27133807She could kill us though. We'd just have to force her arm through us with our own strength. As long as it's her arm and body, everything is Ok. We will NOT again... actually? Why not create one last thing together? A single spear to pierce us both? A spear that can stab even god?
Why is it that every time I decide to draw a proper version of Maddie she nearly dies?Either way, I still need to decide what to do with the arm and legs, and the mane could use some work.
>>27133935If, and I'm not sold, but if we go that route I'd prefer we invented firearms rather than going with the traditional spear. We are machine, the way of the future.
>>27133939Nice! Hope it stays quest relevant...
>>27133939Fucking A-class job, man.Also. It's funny how General class enemies can still one shot us, even though we're no longer Level 2's.>>27133592When you say flicker, do you mean it briefly flashed off before activating again? Is Maddie still conscious?
>>27133592Point of clarification. Is there still light in her eyes of did the light go out?
You hold Maddie in your arms, seeing the spark in her eyes flicker, the world being torn asunder around you no longer matter.A part of you is dying...As the light of this hollow moon glistens off of Maddie's black blood, you are reminded of the two moons that you once saw within your dreams of the Noah.You stare into her flickering eye and shake your head,"I love you as well.. Forever and always.." You press your head against hers," Forever. Forever and always.""I... nt... o..be.." She struggles out the words, her voice fading out into static."One with you." You whisper, finishing her sentence. She nods to you, movements choppy, her spinal chain damaged."Always, and forever, is what you're thinking." You feel the echo of her joy, her love for you.The two of you are child and parent, sister and brother, Lovers. And now.Your body shutters, your armor peeling back as chainsaw mouths open up from all over your body, connecting into one body-wide gaping maw buzzing with thousands of blades. "I shall.. Make this reality! Madeleine!" Your chorus of mouths roar with their motors as you engulf Madeleine's entire body, devouring her in a flurry as her golden shroud embraces her remnants and flows unto you...You feel powerful, strong, peaceful even as you devour your lover, and her power caresses you.. A whisper, her voice,"And with blood of the Hydra, the Lion and Dragon be one."The aura phase-shifts into a deep red, beginning to eat away at your body and joints, yet every single one of your nerve-circuits bring back only delight, and caring.The clash of The Pity and The Red Queen comes to a pause, as the Noah kicks off, and the two of you look at the tragedy."They are.. Dissolving?" The innocence whispers.Maashiima wipes a tear from his eye and casually flicks it away,"Welcome back.. Bondomnu. Noah of Bonds."
>>27133939Perhaps you could make the hair curlier? So that it would look sorta like a fir trim.
>>27134073>funny...Yeah, but don't forget that we're still broken. As in, we need repairs and modifications for our body and Maddie's to take the strain of bearing Noah Memories.
>>27134097>"Welcome back.. Bondomnu. Noah of Bonds."Don't tell me we are accessing our Noah form at last
>>27134097Woo, woo.So, I wonder if we're going for an androgynous look? Kinda like the Level 4's? Would that be enough to qualify us as the 4th Queen? DIAMOND HARD ABS QUEEN?
>>27134147When I asked about it before, Duke said that we needed Maddie to access our Noah form. So I assume that we don't have individual Noah forms; just our Merged self.
>>27134147Yep. Shit just got real. Also, our synch is below 10, so things might get rough if we don't convert back before leaving wonderland.
>>27134162I think that's only true as long as she holds half of Bondomu. If we took Jacob back into our core I expect we would have a unique Noah form. Or we could just merge with anyone on hand.
>>27134097>>27134097>"Welcome back.. Bondomnu. Noah of Bonds."
>>27134097Guys did we just eat up Maddie?
>>27133939This is just wonderful to look at.I think Maddie's overall look should look slim. Bulky only where she has muscles, but the clothes and armoring should be thin or not there at all. Also, are Maddie and Faefnir less mechanical looking because they're "technically" Level 3's, or because they're Noahs? I would say I would have leaned towards the former since Level Ex Maddie was also human looking, but that could have been blamed on the Innocence.>>27134193>Or we could just merge with anyone on handIf we're not careful, we could pretty much become a Vandread, using every one of our family members to transform into some new form.Not that I would mind combining with Ivan and becoming a super sniper, though.
>>27134237We ate her out. Yes. How can you say you love your woman if you're not willing to do at least that much for her?
>>27134237More a violent (but temporary) merging to save her life (we hope, we aren't designed for this).
>>27134270Ok, saw this cumming, but I laughed anyway.
>>27134097"Rul3 W: Bonds can n3v3r b3 brok3n"
>>27134257That could actually be how we differ from Jasdevi, to be honest. Instead of combining to form the perfect body, we combine our strengths with the Akuma in our family. A nice personal spin on the same ability, just as Alice's Wonderland was with Road's dream world.
>>27134257>If we're not careful, we could pretty much become a Vandread, using every one of our family members to transform into some new form.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdFZmaYnle0
>>27134257Well I decided to go with Gladiator armor since it's light, but also beefs up areas it's on, to help give some hueg-ness to places like her arms and lower legs. I originally had her L3 look human, except for a pair of giant gauntlets akin to the Hammerfists from prototype.I think I'll move on to color now, I'm still not too big a fan of the pose though. Should Maddie have "human" skin, or shiny gold/silver?
>>27134257>*cough* Gurren Lagann *cough cough*
>>27134296I would personally say gold.
>>27134295>All the gattai
>>27134296gold, like lion fur
>>27134296Hmm, the armor is black with gold guiding right? How about gold skin with black tattoos (mark of the family instead of the legion etc)?
>>2713428510/10; would visit Wonderland again!
>>27134296Wow, you're pretty quick. I can't wait to see the finished work.Anyway, I think we all agreed on having inhuman skin tones before? And the armor is black with glowing gold veins. So go with gold, I suppose? Silver would seem sort of out of place.
>>27134296i'd say some where between the color of lion fur and maybe some scales her and there for added durability and keeping the lion/serpent theme
>>27134335Well, Gurren Lagann is more of a matryoshka doll, and what other anon was suggesting was us switching out who we'd combine with.
>>27134361>>27134368>Can't draw now, watching POWER RANGERS MEGAZORDS>DAT MUSIC>DEM EXPLOSIONS>GO GO POWA RANGERSI don't remember Power Rangers being this EXTREME
>>27134377more like faefnir is Gurren and takes over other akuma temporaily>we need a drill akuma, and Ivan can be Bro
>>27134285;_;>>27134291I dunno... something about this just doesn't sit right with me. I feel like it would reduce our family members to which of their individual powers compliment us best. I kind of like how our powers work as they are now, where we recruit akuma through bonding, and Maddie is our special #1 lady. I feel like if we did things with fusion dancing with everyone, it'd reduce the bond we have with Maddie, and with the other akuma to a gimmick. They'd be nothing but power-ups to us.
>>27134390IT'S TIME TO CATCH UP ON YOUR CHILDHOOD, MAN!
>>27134400True. It was just a fanciful idea. I feel like if we went down that route, Duke might unconsciously reduce their individual effectiveness to make up for whatever benefit combining with them would give.
dust cloud to obscure her, and a trapdoor off stage. She's only acting after all. And if there's no body, it of course means she'll come back at the most dramatic moment.
You feel the memory of the Noah surge within you, breaching your mind, warping it, slowly distorting it and yet..It only feels right. It only feels good.Why?You were born evil in the first place.>Synch 10/10You feel the power wash over you once more, finally dissipating into the surrounding air.You take a step forward as your form cools. Realizing that you are no longer two. No, you are whole. You are one being. Perfect as the bond is perfect.Your Helm is gone, removed as it was never truly necessary.Long brown hair spills down your neck and shoulders, dappled with beautiful golden highlights. Your lips are painted with gold at the top, and blue at the bottom, with dusky blue eyes that glow like the sunrise Your articulated metal flesh moves with the flexibility of an organism, bearing a tone of dark-gray nearing black like so many of the Noah.You bear no armor upon any inch of your, your metallic nudity revealing a chiseled, masculine and herculean chest on one side, and a perfectly smooth round, almost ornate feminine breast upon the other.The rest of your body bears an androgynous sort of muscle. Hardened and toned in areas while curving like a female in others.You open a mouth to breath, a gentle sigh, fangs glistening from your own mouth.You feel.. Good..

>>27134390>>27134404EXTREEEEMMMEEEEAlso I like how the props are definitely just the toys.
>>27134400>>27134421Ah, but a thought just occurred to me.Akuma already CAN combine to form one giant Akuma.Road combined three of them, I think, once at the town where the manga's main characters found Miranda.And the Earl commanded lots of Level 3's to form giant Akumas. So it's not like there isn't any precedent.>>27134426The Devil Queen.Have the Queen of Clubs make a rule.Rule A: If Alice wants in, SHE GETS IN!!!!!Just to counter the Queen of Spades from locking Alice out. If the Devil Queen tries to raise an objection, let's shut her up quickly with a mouth clamp.
>>27134426clap our hands and create and army of half bread minions, some dragons, some lions, some like our family

>>27134426>You bear no armor upon any inch of your, your metallic nudity revealing a chiseled, masculine and herculean chest on one side, and a perfectly smooth round, almost ornate feminine breast upon the other.Do not want. Seriously, this looks awkward as fuck.>(You have control. The Stage is yours.)This become our story now. We hijack the law of wonderland and forces all queens to beggarhood. >>27134496this
>>27134426turn the battlefield into a giant stage, the world is both our audience and performers.... Rule of the Stage: all must obey the directors orders!
>>27134496That's the finale.For now, let's try and get Alice in? We can't summon her, but we can at least stop the Devil Queen from hindering her entrance.
>>27134521Don't fret remember 'The World is your plaything' meaning that if we want to become a literal slashing burning tornado of death we can.
>>27134426First things first, greet our brother. Then make an anti-mind control helm for the Queen of Clubs.
>>27134426One could say we became a.. drag-queen. But enough about hermaphrodites, we have some work to do.FIRST! Let's shut them up! Bonds of steel to muffle the red queen's mouth. Same with the black if she tries anything. Now.. we are heads above their silly rules. We can create whatever we want! We ARE the rules! Negate their rules make our own, create blue hot flames and atom sharp kitchen knives! For what they've done to us and our beloved family, we are going to make a meat pie fit for a king, made from some queens.
>>27134426We Slaanesh now."Rul3 W: Bonds can n3v3r b3 brok3n. But pitiful Innocence that have worn out their welcome can. A a Queen is only as strong as her subjects- and we have the best damn subjects in the whole damn world!"Then we do this:>>27134489 We hold her down with our army and then pound her to a pulp with our own two hands. >>27134484Oh yeaah, forgot about all that. I continue my objections though. It just feels too gimmicky, like we're using them as our Dress Spheres or something.
>>27134521>>You bear no armor upon any inch of your body, your metallic nudity reveals a chiseled, masculine and herculean chest on one side, and a perfectly smooth round, almost ornate feminine breast upon the other.Had to fix that for myself..I also forgot to add that you are nude as the bond feels no reprisal of shame.

>>27134587>Nothing at all>Nothing at all>Nothing at all>Nothing at all>Nothing at all
>>27134587We are NEVER using this form around the Family. They'd never let us live it down. THINK OF THE CHILDREN! (seriously though, those little shits are already disturbing enough before they realize we're a robotic hermaphrodite.)
>>27134426Create stage"Sorrow, this world of laughter and madness has been besieged by the false queens. Upon this eve of battle what can men do against such those who would break the bonds of this world and entangle them as they see fit? Madness! Blasphemy! Nay these sins cannot continue, these insults to my family must be cleansed. If I must curse Gods name to the reaches of Wonderland dragging the Devil in the dirt behind me then I shall.

>>27134652True. We could also try to get our sexes to be identical before we change so our Bondomu form isn't some weird Robo-Slaanesh. We were in girl form already on this one, so it can't be too hard to get it to stick when we fuse.>>27134679Well.. we get the hermaphrodite part of Level 4 down already.Also-I change my vote from here: >>27134579to this:>>27134623We're gonna chew the fuck out of the scenery. Probably literally.

>>27134704Rule 1: Should an outsider attack a member of the family, he will be avenged sevenfold.Rule 2: The familily is always safe in the Wonderlands, all outsider shall be hunted by a pack of Jabberwockee
>>27134704Careful, remember that the Devil is a card representing bondage either in the form of attachment to material things or as servitude. Word the law carefully, specify the bonds.

Rolled 44>>27134835Well, we could turn devil's luck on, and should.
>>27134835Whelp, the devil won. Bye Alice.
>>27134844Doesn't that empower the devil each time we use it? Whafever, do it.
Rolled 67>>27134878We have become a physical god. Literally.
>>27134864You know what? To hell with it. We can make anything? Let's make our own LUCK!
>>27134835Clasp that devil to our chest. It's time to bond.
Rolled 48>>27134899I don't think it put us in great danger to empower it a little bit in our current state.
>>27134906We might be a bit tied up at the moment.
>>27134906I like your spirit. We can marshmallow hell her like we did to Alice. If we get around to it. Or if we don't kill her.Also, I found a picture that seemed rather... Us.
>>27134955>Franken FranI loved that fucking manga...
So it kinda feels like the Queen of Clubs is becoming irrelevant right now? It just doesn't seem appropriate to ignore her at this juncture.
>>27134965We remake her as an Akuma, and we gather the surrounding madness, darkness and other dark emotions to make her level 2 or 3 from birth.
>>27134965Hmmm.. not exactly, she DOES have something we can use. Her bond to the red queen whom has a bond with the black queen. Say, think that through the power of bonds we can get a triple kill?
>>27135005Why a triple kill? Corrupt one and use the bond to infect the other.
>>27135036Here you go.
>>27134955Horrifying, yet arousing. I approve.
Bronze skin looks pretty good on here. Now on to highlights and other purty effects.Skin is on it's own layer, so feel free to recommend other colors and I'll hue/saturate it to match.
>>27135219It would be cool if Maddie's colors complimented Faefnir's.
You bring a hand up to your brow, closing your eyes and shaking your head as you fall back into a throne of your imagination. Luxurious, gaudy even. Cherrywood with a lion upon one armrest, and a dragon upon the other. Red quilting among the entire back of the seat."This has become quite the mess hasn't it?" You speak, the simultaneous voice of not Faefnir or Madeleine, but Jacob and Claire."Time for SOMEONE to clean this up." You cast the hand from your brow with a flick, throwing a lock of hair out of your eyes. You point at the Queen of clubs. You there, come here, and sit with me. You may be human, here, however you're still ours."As the woman steps forward, she looks you in the eye, entranced and terrified at once as you currently hold the leash on her form, yet this world holds her existence. "And what right do YOU have to command her?! She is mine! MINE I say! She belongs to-"Your eyes gleam upon the ranting innocence, and within that moment, Maashiima takes the moment of distraction, lopping off the head with a flick of his wrist. He catches the thing by the radiant red hair and holds it before and away from himself like something that simply smells bad."A pity that its feelings got in the way of its duty.." The Tendrils begin to move, curling around his hand, the head begins screaming, gnashing, attacking him with that invisibly force, and yet his body resists the entire brunt of it without a flinch."Such a pitiful state."Free from the Red Queen's rantings, the Queen of Clubs approaches you upon your throne as you change the landscape, creating a throne-room audience chamber complete with marble columns, a second floor for observation, and a raised floor for your own throne.Taking the hint, the Clubs kneel before you," Ah.. I.. Noah... My Liege Noah. What would you ask of me?"
>>27135026How old is this manga/where is it from?
"I have new rules to make for Wonderland. With myself representing the White Queen of Diamond, I would have you, the Queen of Clubs carry the motion for me."Your eyes meet the Black Queen her empty eyes betraying nothing to you, yet her smile is serpent. Sinister and foreboding. "I'll have you know.." She steps forward, rudely ignoring the Queen of Clubs," That I no longer care to reside here. At this point? I'd much rather have a way out." She looks back to Maashiima and the Innocence that he's now toying with."I have not raised hand against you." The Black Queen's gaze returns to you."I aspire to walk free into the world without the pretext of wonderland.>Before you lie the Queen of Clubs and Spades... One awaits your command, the other awaits your cooperation.> Set the Queen of Spades Free.> Establish new rules for Wonderland.> Do something with Clubs.> (Other)
>>27135241Oh, cool. We neutralized the Red Queen.Maybe we can destroy the Innocence now and use it as an ingredient....If we don't end up killing the Queen of Clubs (and if we manage to resolve things with the Devil Queen), I suppose we could let her become one of Alice's tea guests. She's not exactly human anymore, since we just killed her body.
>>27135219>Forgot the helm
>>27135282>Speak privately with the Queen of Spades.See if we can't negotiate her cooperation and our family's safety in the outside world.
>>27135282Did summoning the Queen of Clubs do anything? Seeing as how the Red Queen wanted her back, I'll go ahead and assume that summoning her at least weakened the Red Queen?Anyway, same guy as this.>>27135302I also want to ask the Queen of Clubs want she wants to do. Does she want to die? Or, now that she's free of the Innocence, does she want to stay in Wonderland? Perhaps as Alice's tea girl?
>>27135282>I would ask what you would do in the material world, before I decide to release you or not... However, I do feel I owe you a debt of gratitude for your assistance in the past, I've felt your presence when in need before.>>27135302And this, if we could get on better terms with "the dice god", that would be good.
>>27135323Summoning the Queen of Clubs made the innocence desire to reunite with her once more. Think of it as a logical fallacy in the Innocence.
>>27135256It's Franken Fran. It's fairly recent, and what this anon said:>>27135099is basically the entire series in a nutshell. It's like if /d/ and gurochan had a monstergirl baby.>>27135282>[x] Set the Queen of Spades Free. Swear that you will not raise a hand against us or our Family, and you are free to go. We have had amiable relations in the past, and I see no reason to sour things now. >>27135282>[x] Establish new rules for Wonderland.Make a rule that lets Alice come back in. It's her world after all. We just... momentarily improved it.>>27135323It gave us a second vote, I guess?Also, seconded on allowing Clubs to decide her own fate.
>>27135368Ah, so it made her lose composure, at the very least. That's good enough for me, I suppose.
>>27135282"That's lovely to know Queen of Black. I have felt your presence in the past, and it has aided me at times, but brought into motion events I have not enjoyed.While you do not act as enemy today I would be a fool to simply trust you.What guarantee do I have that you will not inconvenience me in the future, or act against me and mine? What guarantee do I have that your actions will not go against the goals of myself and my Family? You did already attempt to take Wonderland from my darling Sister Alice and bar her entry from her home."
>>27135356>>27135374I don't think we know that the Queen of Spades is the same force that assisted us, but for the sake of giving our character a reasonable excuse for thinking the Devil Queen is linked to us, we can just say that we felt the same malevolent force that's been "helping" us surge through us while we were creating the Devil Queen's body.>>27135368Did we use the crit inversion? I can't tell from this situation, since we usually cut away to some cut-scene first to show that it's in effect.
>>27135282Rules first. We have a certain someone who needs to get back in so we can start fixing things properly. Second, we need to find a way to deal with the devil queen. Letting her free would be a bad idea if she decides to harm our family. So, why not create a few bindings? She cannot harm our families, get in our way or what have you. If anything, she is under us. Then we can send her out in the world.. or send her out in space. One or the other.And of course, little miss clubs can be Alice's play mate and gift once we deal with the ugly red queen once and for all. I still say we make her head diamond and use her eyes as wedding rings. The rest can be a gift for the earl. A nice center piece crafted by one of his beloved family.
>>27135434Those bindings may not work outside of Wonderland. Well, let's just see what happens.The Red Queen (and the Earthen Queen's real body) is "dead" now. The Innocence is still alive and kicking. I say, we destroy it and reform it into something.
>>27135412>Did we use the crit inversion?You did. The fact that the Red Queen lost her head is part of it. Along with your interaction with the Queen of Clubs.The cut away did not occur as the devil stands before you now.I'm looking for some kind of common ground in regards to dealing with the Spade.Seems to be that you'd like to question her and her motives...
>>27135515that's the jist of it, yeah
>>27135515"So, what do you plan to do with that fancy new body, Spade?"[x]Question her and then if favorable, she makes promises.We don't trust her. She tried to jack wonderland and kill Maashima. If she walks out of here, she does so with a binding oath that she can't harm us, our Family, or the Noah in any way; nor may she hinder, betray, or otherwise attempt to do us harm indirectly. We'll let her go, but she's not walking out of here without some promises.
And here we have a completed picture of Madeline, with her Overshield on. See anything that needs tweaked?
>>27135558I wonder if this will involve a golden fiddle...
>>27135576love it. It says both "tart" and "warrior" at the same time!
>>27135576You do me proud.Maddie has brown hair, but it's not unreasonable for it to change when she transforms.>>27135558Promises may be enough, but a general truce between the Noah/Akuma and her would be a good place to start.
>>27135576I like it, she looks like a amazonian murder tart. And her mask is awesome looking, especially when next to Faefnir, they contrast well with their appearance and color scheme.
[x]Wonderland rule #Fish: Wonderland may be left at any time by truthfully swearing a solemn and honest oath to oppose God
"That is lovely to know, Queen of Black.." You lean forward in your throne, locking your eyes upon the woman, even as her gossamer globes regard you. She bears the look of someone in control. Not something that you want to see."I have felt your presence for some time. Since long ago in the past, was it? You have aided me then- Though." You grip at the lion's head of your chair's arm, crushing it under your mighty fingers,"There often followed events that I had not enjoyed."She smiles to you now, sweetly, charming. One that would sicken and charm any mortal man at once," Ah yes, the times that I have helped you. I certainly have played a hand in your short existence. You are a curiosity after all. However even my power over divine intervention has its limits. For instance, right then when Maashiima took the Red Queen's head. I knew that you wanted that to occur. I sensed the desire, the invested interest." She rubs her black nails together as though she would rub two coins, and a small orb of violet black energy appears. You can feel it radiate with the power of fate. The tides of fortune and misfortune."I'll tell you this time, You shall free me from this prison, or I shall return your recent strokes of fortune. All this progress of yours? Certainly impressive." She twirls the sphere, just the size of a marble between her fingers, her eyes dead and uncaring. Unreadable," It can all be undone however. This is not an audience. This is a demand."You rise from your seat, starting for a lunge at the Devilish women, yet she stops the sphere between two of her fingers and smiles,"No violence, or it shall unfold."> It's your move.
Oh hey. A rule for when we speak to the Queen of Spades.>Liar, liar, pants on fire.Or, in this case, entire body on fire.Just so that we know that the Queen will tell us the truth, at least, here in Wonderland.
>>27135823So that's our Devil's luck powers she got there? If we don't play ball, she's not gonna help us out, right?We need Devil's Luck. We really do. It's been the difference between victory and success in virtually every thread. [x]She can go. She's got us over a barrel here. "Very well. I see no reason for our... partnership to come to an end."
>>27135823well, she's got us by the balls, doesn't she? Let's just let her go.
>>27135907More specifically, she's also holding the backlash of your last two crits.
>Very well, I can't see any other option here but to release you... However, I am still curious as to what you will do. And having your assistance, even if it is merely a curiosity of yours, has been invaluable. Is there anywhere you would like to be released? I am unsure how much physical distance means to one such as you.Remaining on decent terms with the Dark Presence seems like a good idea.
>>27135929That was... us when the Red Queen hit us, and then we failed a roll when we went Bondomu, right?Regardless, even if we don't blow up from the backlash, we'd be losing her patronage. >>27135907I already voted here. I suspect we'll regret not killing her in the future, but she's basically carried us through the quest, so let's just see what happens.
[x]Wonderland rule #Fish: Unless countermanded by Alice, Wonderland may be left at any time by truthfully swearing a solemn and honest oath to oppose God[x]Rule: None may oppose the Family Noah [x]Rule: There is no such thing as Innocence, only varying degrees of Dark Matter[x]Rule: faith in God brings only sufferin[x]Rule: all souls call out for their dead loved ones
>>27135823>>27135912Strike a deal, she doesn't hold this gun over us for now, we release her free and clear. In the future, Devil's Luck is the ONLY IN DIRE NEED button.
>>27135912..we truly are mecha slaanesh aren't we?
>>27135823Okay.We can let her go.But let's see if we can't talk some more. After all, what's the rush? Is she eager to use all that misfortune on someone? On something?We have no problems with continuing our current "arrangement" with her.Also, once she's out of Wonderland, I suppose she'll be dropping the Queen of Spades facade? To return to her normal state, whatever that is?
>>27135985not really. because if we were, where the hell is our cocaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaine!?
>>27135975I suppose it's imperative that, once we get Morgan to fix us and we get to level 4, we should really focus on learning Chaos Magic.And maybe once Schwere is done translating the Blood Magic section of the black grimoire, she can get to work on researching our friend on the other side....
>>27136003We could make it. We could make TONS of it. We could make SUPER cocaine! That whole 'make whatever you like' thing
>>27135823Let the lady strut her stuff in the real world.
>>27135823[x]Wonderland rule #Fish: Unless countermanded by Alice, Wonderland may be left at any time by truthfully swearing a solemn and honest oath to oppose GodWould you like some bread?[x]Rule: None may oppose the Family Noah [x]Rule: There is no such thing as Innocence, only varying degrees of Dark Matter[x]Rule: faith in God brings only sufferin[x]Rule: all souls call out for their dead loved ones
>>27136018And then we see who bends who over a barrel. I like this idea. We'll make our own luck and we won't need this bitch anymore. Oh man.. we'll be like the dark presence to our own Family. It's almost... heartwarming.
>>27136084You have good taste, sir.
>>27136038Yeah, vehemently against this.We have no way of knowing if Wonderland rules apply outside of Wonderland. But they probably don't. And the Black Queen probably won't appreciate anything like this. She's haughty and she's got a big ego. And we don't actually have the ability to enforce any of these rules on her, since she can veto them herself (we can't make any rules, that's why we have the Queen of Clubs with us).Let us be cordial for now. Gentlemen. Or, well, somewhere between being a gentleman and a gentlewoman.
>>27136084Are your suggesting we fuck this dark presence, who I will now and forever call Miss Fortune?
>>27136105The first rule is a "Ok, you can leave if you're an enemy of our enemy, which given you've been helping us is likely" It's not a binding oath. It's a TRUTHFUL oath. Then we cordially offer to break bread with her. The rest have nothing to do with her and might even be done after she leaves. They're just cleaning house to prevent this sort of mess from repeatin
>>27136135We would never fuck her. We're a one woman kind of... well... Maddie, Schwere, Morgan, probably Andrea, maybe Alice if she felt like- I digress. Murder, my dear Bakanon. We use her until we no longer need her, and then we murder her. If she crosses us, we tear her world down and then bake bread from her ashes.
>>27136174but if we murder Miss Fortune, just think how angry Sir Prize will be!!!
You know, it'd be pretty hilarious to play meddling older sibling and try to set up Miss Fortune with one of our siblings
>>27136195Considering how Alice's corrupted tea guests tried to kill Maashiima while shouting death to the Noah, I'd say......she'd be perfect for the 14th,But really, I think we should try to set up some peace between us. For now, anyway.
>>27136189We wouldn't want that. Sir Prize is Alice's very good friend, after all.
Realizing that the cards are clearly not in your favor, you begrudgingly take your seat once more, the splintered lionshead reforming with a subtle gesture," So, if I do not let you leave then I will lose our little arrangement?"The woman tilts her head ever so slightly to the side,"Arrangement? I suppose you could call it that if you wish." Her eyes flick to the fate that she holds, their gossamer taking in some of the glow before she makes the energy seemingly vanish. You still feel the strings of fate held taught by the energy, ready to snap at any time."Release me and I'll do as I always have for you." She looks over to Maashiima, whom approaches, still bearing the head of the red Queen, eyes now gouged out."I'm not sure what this.. woman is Bondomnu.."He looks to the Black Queen, obviously wary, though maintaining his composure," Though I'll tell you that I am rather sick of wonderland by now.. And I'd like to destroy this Innocence outside of Alice's dream.""Very well, very well. Black Queen, you may leave, if only for the fact that it seems that we have a common enemy. However- If I catch you crossing the family again..""Off with my head?" The woman stares at you blankly, clearly unamused,"However much you wish it, such judgement may be hard to carry out.." She seems thoughtful for a moment as she raises a fingernail to her temple,"I look forward to it." A smile creeps across her face like the skittering of spiders."I will also allow the owner of this place her way within once more. My business here is done." She turns, gripping at the air as an ornate door appears, opening for her. "Goodbye, my curiosity.."She slips through, and thus she's gone.You'll see her again, she implied as much.Now, for the Queen of Clubs... You look down at the plain woman, human in every way, save perhaps for the green tint to her brown hair.
Alice falls down from the ceiling, landing right atop of her. The little Noah looks around the throne-room, seemingly flabberghasted,"Oh.. Oh... Uhm.. Where am I? I don't quite remember this place.. Is this.. Is this wonderland?" The Queen of Clubs begins to rise up, and Alice slides off with an Eep!"Oh, oh, sorry! Didn't see you there!" She waves down to the last Queen, before looking to you and Maashiima," Say, aren't you two familiar? Pity and.. Bonds, yes? I think.. I think I came here to get you two out of here!" She bounces up and down, clapping as though she's done a really good thing.She stops abruptly before looking at the queen,"Oh and.. And who is this?"> Introduce the two...> Kill the Queen of Clubs,"No one, let's get out of here."> Don't you seem... different?> (Other)
>>27136345Introduce her to Alice.
>>27136345"a sad, sad excuse for what would once become an exorcist. The red queen's human host, shall we say."
>>27136345Holy crap.. we made Alice sane. And less.. robust? Ahh well, she's still our cute little sister. Though the question still remains. What DOES the little queen of clubs want? We can free her of her life, give her a new body as an akuma, have her be alice's guest here now that the madness is gone from both of them, many options.Also, hug alice.
>>27136345A new guest for tea, if you would have her, I suppose.>>27136380The Red Queen WAS the cause for Alice's mania. It's only logical that, now that the Red Queen has lost her influence, Alice would be cured.I'm.....I'm going to miss our silly little sister.....
>>27136380I don't think the Green Queen would very much appreciate becoming yet another host to some malevolent force again. I mean, not that she could stop us if he wanted to do so (and if we're even capable of it; she's not the real soul, just a simulacrum of it that only exists because of Wonderland and our power).
>>27136394*sniff* they grow up so fast. I'd say hug her into our bosom, but we only have the one so it makes it pretty awkward.>>27136406In the end, the thing I was pointing to was choice. The red bitch caused trouble for her as well as Alice so at the very least a small bit of choice and pity for the girl for doing her part in the end.
I wonder how much time has passed in the real world. A few hours at most, I think. Wonderland really messed with our perception of time.
You rise from the throne,"A new guest for tea, if you would have her, I suppose," stepping down to the same level as your family, the happy little girl seems to be devoid of the manic insanity that she had once fostered. While she still wears her lacy little dress with ribbons and all, she reminds you far more closely of Audrey before the change.. Though perhaps a bit less mature and innocent. you kneel before Alice, and pull her into a hug, gentle and comforting,"It is good to see you. We had been worried when you did not return."Alice pats your mane of hair and brings her fleshy cheek against your metal,"I'm alright Bondomu I'm very sorry that I worried you, and Maashiima too, even if he is a bit boring at times.." She pulls away, looking at the Down-To-Earth queen once more.The Queen of Clubs blushes slightly under the young girl's gaze, quite bashful,"What.. what's with you little lady.. You can stop staring.."Alice slips free from your grasp as you remain upon your knee, she slowly strides up to the woman, looking up with a small amount of wonder,"You're pretty, you know that? I like your hair as well. Looks like it'd smell like the forest, or perhaps a garden. I really like gardens, flowers especially."The Queen of Clubs kneels down before Alice, speaking like an adult would kindly to a child," Oh yes?" She touches her hair thoughtful to the point," I was touched by a spirit of the forest, a fairy if you would while I was younger.."Alice's eyes go wide as she smiles with wonder," Really? Really? You were touched by a fairy? What was it like?"The Woman of Green, thinks for a moment,"Well, it was like being kissed by sunlight and water- Both at once!" She raises a finger,"More importantly though is where the fair lived. Young lady, what is your name?"Alice smiles, an innocent and sweet one," Alice, my name is Alice of the Road!"
The Woman puts her hands upon her hips," Well that is the oddest coincidence! That fairy lived in a flower called Alice by the side of the Road!""No way!" Alice whines with her disbelief.The Woman pushes it," Yes way! It's the most adorable little flower you can think of. With beautiful black and gold petals."Internally, you comment on Maddie's own colors being prettier than any other flower.. She laughs, she could never consider herself so delicate.The Woman and the girl carry on with their sweet little exchange until,"Your coat, I really like it. It's nice.""Oh? Why thank you.. It's served me well in the winters." The woman smiles."What's your name?""Regina, I can't remember my last name.""Regina, will you stay here and play with me from now on? I'll give you a last name in return."The woman looks to you- a shrug- before looking down to Alice with a gentle hand upon her shoulder,"I'd like that. I'd really like that."Then it's settled! From now on, you're Regina Road!">End Thread.
>Will Twitter my next run-time. It'll be next week.
>>27136605Next thread will be the wrap-up, maybe a quick visit to Morgan, then finally we'll get to see what happened with Ivan (I hope he's alright).Also, thread archived.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27130211/It's been a pleasure, Maaaaashiiiimaaaaa.
>>27136609Why does level 4 look like a retarded baby that wasnt fed enough? And why does he have a star on his crotch?
>>27136641I think the author was going through a Visual Kei phase by that point in time.
>>27136641Because uncanny valley, Akuma are supposed to be a fucked up abomination, not awesome kickass abomination.
>>27136641Pretty much>>27136683It's kind of why I wanted to go with the general idea of it, though without the weird baby-form to it.The uncanny valley aspect to them certainly does add a touch-bit of creep factor, especially with the fact that its angelic appearance belies the fact that it's powered by high octane nightmare and murderfuel.
>>27136714A level 4 Akuma was actually insulted when someone saw one and asked "Are you an angel" in the book, funnily enough.
>>27136714time to begin our Highland campaign, we are Madnir, Celtic God of Creation and Bonds
and indecisiveness for the failure:we could have played hardball and tried to enslave her with Wonderland RulesOR we could have played nice and tried to befriend the helpful allyInstead we just came off as an ass
>>27136745Celtic Gods are often represented in trinities, for some reason.>>27136714It's a shame that the Jabberwocky came to no use this time. Perhaps the next time Alice fights.>>27136754I don't think we could have befriended the Devil Queen. I think it was pretty clear that, no matter what, she'd never think of us as anything more than an interesting trinket to look at.
>>27136769Obviously the three parts of us are Bond, Maddy, and Faefnir. We should return to separate beings sometime soonish. Not sure, but this form likely doesn't have infinite energy. Should probably create spare parts though if Maddy is still damaged.
