You tell your alien cat of a boss that you don't have an opinion, one way or another, about you having to spend considerably less time babysitting the most popular - and coincidentally the most annoying - idol in the world. You're not paid to care.Still, if he wants you to pet him for a bit, you wouldn't say no. Maybe for a few seconds, and just on the head. ...Probably some ear-scratching, but nothing beyond that. You don't want to make this weird.There's a moment of silence here, before Kyuubey turns away from you. "I appreciate the offer, Matsuda, but it won't be necessary. I already have Tomoe Mami to attend to that kind of need, if it ever comes up."...Ah. Huh. All...alright, then. Y-you were just joking, anyway."There's no need to sound offended, Matsuda."You're not offended! God damn mutant bastard cat!
>>27737730"If you say so." It's here he clears his throat. "Now, before you ask, no, this abrupt change of plans is not about your performance tonight - at least, as far as I've heard. 2020 Productions simply wishes to move their most important asset somewhere safer for the time being. I did volunteer you to at least accompany her to where they're shipping her off to, but..." It's here that the alien feline lets out its equivalent of a sigh and a shrug. Betraying the faintest note of irritation and frustration in his voice. "They seem to have their own plans, so I didn't press the issue."...Well. Sounds like idol production agencies are just as hard to deal with as their own idols, huh?"Not as such. Just this particular one." Kyuubey lets out another sigh, his tail flicking from side to side. He looks up at you again, and you have the feeling that he's about to say something - but seems to decide against it at the last moment. As if he doesn't trust you enough, just yet."Nevermind that. No need to bore with you difficult business relationships, Matsuda." He shakes his head. "In any case, the security detail should be finished loading your victims - and their helpers - into the conveyance Karasawa requested. Following the rules and regulations set by the First Officio in handling Magical Girl prisoners, we will hold them seperate Silent Rooms and have them interrogated, before conducting a proper trial to decide whether we allow them to live and re-integrate them into our own ranks, or submit them to execution." He nods at you. "You will, of course, be required to preside over the trial as a judge."You get to do that kind of thing?"Well, of course. You are Warmaster, after all." Kyuubey blinks, here. "Before we get into that, though - is there anything else that happened during this assassination attempt? Something else you'd like to mention that came up?"...Sounds like the mutant cat's trying to fish for something.How do you respond?
>>27737730>the most exciting time of the day.jpgwow this is particularly early.
The best time of day is here!http://sgcafe.com/2013/10/life-size-homura-2-meter-goddess-madoka-statue-displayed-tokyo-observatory/*plays Battle Hymn of the Republic*
>>27737738A THREAD WITHOUT WARNING?WHAT IS GOING ON?
>>27737738I thought something weird happened (*koff*Wendy*koff*) but it was probably the blood loss.Hungry now...
>>27737738Probably fishing for info about Wendy's presence."That the insane deity in my timestop likes to eat soulgems? I think that's about it, other than that the combination of bloodloss and Golden weapon usage makes me hallucinate *really* weirdly."
>>27737738To out Wendy, or not to out Wendy...We haven't actually brought her up with anyone yet, have we?
>>27737752i was as pleasently suprised as you were.so time for answers people, obviously something else happened that coobs might be interested in.so what should we talk about here?maybe how we found out how essentially golden weaps are practically surrogate soul recepticles?wendy showing up and doing shit?perhaps ask how did the sniper we tried saving did?also talk about how there may have been people in the crowd?how pinky literally turned off our time stop temporarily, actually does he even officially know about that yet?not sure how to proceed here.
>>27737730I-its not like I wanted to pet you or anything! B-bakaneko!>gunshot
>>27737774We sort of did to Sayaka, but she just wrote it off as hallucination.We should probably write it off to QB the same way.
>>27737738"I met someone I thought dead..."Tell him we met Wendy but emphasize that shes not a danger.
>>27737738[x] "They weren't here for Ruri, they were here for me. Psycho sword bitch was ready to have her 'followers' blow their soulgems just to hurt my rep."
>>27737738[x] "Nothing really relevant, no. Cleared things up pretty definitively I'd say."Starting early this wee~k!
>>27737776These. We need those cooby points.
>>27737766No wonder QB eats his own corpse. He's a delicious anpan
>>27737804[x] also this >>27737770
>>27737738[x] Passing over being stabbed, assassination attempt on me of all people, -More of that prophet fu- that prophet person, bloodloss... nothing that shouldn't come out during interrogation. The Tojo group had some connections with the rogue girls, but nothing important springs to mind. [x]Unless you're wanting to micromanage your warmaster's eating.. locations. You can also have a bullet massage too.
>>27737738[X] I'll let you know when I'm certain
>>27737738>They were here for me, not Ruri. Some nonsense about me being Pinky's shield maiden and ending the world. They were here on the orders of that so called Prophet. I think she may be using them as tools to collect golden weapons.>The golden weapons contain what I presume are copies of the souls of their wielders. This may explain why some go insane and others don't - feedback loops.>Speaking of Pinky, she eats soul gems and I apparently remembered this when I stopped time to save my sniper. She locked me out of my timestop when I refused to feed her.>Wendy may have been here but hallucination.>Ask for the records of Yuu.
>Got some ice cream before counting up votes>Counted up votes>Ice cream slightly meltedI hope you people appreciate the horrors we endure for you.
[x] "I'm a psychopathic, drunken, drug-abusing amnesiac. I see lots of stuff that may or may not be there.What, exactly, do you want to confirm?"
>>27737738[x] seconding >>27737827
>>27737738[X] Their boss, Lucius, was responsible for threatening Mami, and is working for the Prophet. They called me Faust's Shieldmaiden. The 10th seemed aware of the attack ahead of time, and told the Tojo Group about it. Faust is able to disable our time stop. The gauntlets contain the soul of their original owner. And someone named Wendy, who I have been seeing in my dreams, might have been here, or I might have been hallucinating.Come on, let's trust our feline friend a little.
>>27737801>Tell him we met Wendy but emphasize that shes not a danger.We don't know that. If she's mixed up in this golden weapon business, and she's already died once, you should realise that it's not impossible we may have to put her down again.
>>27737909But melted ice cream tastes even better.
>>27737943Knowing and believing are two different things.Chiaki won't want to fight her. Not unless shes forced to. So she'll believe.
>>27737958hope for the best, prepare for the worst.this is Noir after all.
>>27737970But thats not noir, thats practical.Noir is precisely that letting emotion cloud better judgement.
>>27737984...you make a good point. dammit.
>>27737984We should ask Mami (or I guess Kyuubei if we need to) for files and info on Wendy. Jut blame it on bad dreams if they ask, since we know they're aware of the connection of Chiaki and her, which should let them not suspect she's around here.We need to take precautions in case Wendy's bad news. Fair enough not to sick the Officio on her by outing her presence, but we can't just ignore her either because that leaves us clueless and helpless and entirely to blame if she DOES do anything. We need to know more about her (the NECO files are good, but there has to be more info about her methods and powers available to us in the Officio).
>>27737970>>27737984>>27737990Regardless; it's pointless to mention Wendy was there at the moment; considering no-one even saw her but us and the situation's dealt with, unless she starts stabbing people now then there's nothing to mention.
>>27738011Yes but we had a small internal agreement with Kyuubey not to hide things from each other. We even told him of pinky and I see no reason not to stop. As of now, she helped Chiaki and no signs of any combative action against the 8th, yet so she appears to be ok, for now.
>>27737984I guess we're gonna need an edit of this.>>27738007This seems like a good idea that we'll probably totally forget by the time a good time to bring it up emerges.
I couldn't advance on coloring this anymore because my weekend was really hectic, but I did make time to finish up another projecthttp://wiki.magicalgirlnoir.com/index.php/FanartFor everyone who asked for a Fanart Gallery, I went ahead and made one. My own stuff still needs to be organized, but every other drawing has been neatly ordered and given a thread relevant description were appropriate. Fun, right?
>>27738021As far as I'm concerned, Kyubey is completely trustworthy so far. We're his Warmaster, and the organization that he and us run will be stronger the more info he has.At some point our goals might not align, but I don't see him betraying us until we refuse an order.
>>27738047>>27738021As of now Wendy is not of any importance to Coobie that we know ofMurderface kept things quiet and Chiaki seems to have carried that one thing over from her old persona so we shouldn't tell him until it becomes relevant
>>27738047>Kyubey is completely trustworthyIncubator Internet Defense Force pls go
>>27738060I'm pretty sure ANY MGs not in our Officio being in our territory is of importance to him. Either he already knows, in which case telling won't hurt anyone, or he doesn't and telling him is pretty important.
>>27738060As far as Chiaki knows, Wendy is still with the 8th. Them being involved in this fiasco could be a big deal.
>>27738077It feels like a test.I think he knows, just seeing if chiaki will volunteer the information
>>27738105>738105>>>27738077>It feels like a test.>I think he knows, just seeing if chiaki will volunteer the informationI think Coobie knows more than we know
>>27738078>>27738077I don't think it would be that big a deal given we have goddamn cultist magical girls operating in our town, one friendly to neutral member of a friendly officio doesn't strike me as anything to tell the boss aboutMaybe Mami when we see her next so we can ask her about cat morph
>>27737954That's a lie
>>27738026>dat picI like to imagine Chiaki angrily murmuring into Wendy's mouth and then just kissing her harder and ignoring the knife completely
>>27738131I like you.
>>27738131'Tis but a scratch! I've had worse!
>>27738131It's not like they can't heal up after.Being a magical girl is useful if you're into knife-play.
>>27738131>>27738026I wonder if that counts as penetrative sex?
>>27738077>>27738078uh, there were a shitload of real MGs in the crowd for the concertQB knew this
>>27738175And a lot that weren't from our officio in particular>>27738153I would say it depends on whether either or both parties enjoy the penetration
>>27738192yes, that was my pointruri is a world-famous MG-related idolit makes sense that MGs from other officios would show up to her concertI vaguely recall someone mentioning that, so long as they didn't transform or use any magic, QB wouldn't care
>>27738215Well we know Wendy used magic sooooo...
>>27738192>>27737730>>27738215>>27738239But Chiaki isnt even sure Wendy was there. heck, one of our favourite past-times is havig awful dreams and hallucinating and now you want to tell the boss that we saw another Meguca here while trying to deal with heavy bloodloss? This serves no purpose.
>>27738077The thing is, there's MGs from ALL OVER in the crowd, it's why we couldn't do a sweep to protect them.We can mention that we found out she was in the crowd, but we didn't see her take any action. Definitely nothing hostile.
>>27738278Then it is passed off as nothing because she did not use magic
>>27738278Why bother telling him at all if you're just gonna lie about it?
>>27738277And even if we did say that we saw her what damning evidence do we have?She used magic to mask her presence so it appeared we walked off the field unassisted? Helped us out and made sure the area was clear and disappearing before the security detail arrived?
>>27738277We definitely know that Wendy is out there and kicking. I wouldn't put it past her status as the 8th's Callidus Prima to have pulled off what she did.>>27738320The mutant cat knows that we're hiding something. Chiaki was never good at lying.
>>27738346>tell a lie to avoid telling a lieNamefag logic, everyone!
>>27738346>We definitely know that Wendy is out there and kicking.Thats not the point.The point is we got intimate with 3 spears and suffered heavy bloodloss and you want to tell the boss about a girl you saw that somehow no one else saw, even your best Callidus?Nigga pls.
>>27738406Weird shit happens to MGs. Just mention something, keep it vague because you have no answers.
>>27738358>>27738406It's better than lying outright that we didn't see anything, but in fact we did even as just an illusion.With how ludicrous the whole thing is, QB might chalk it up to Chiaki being dysfunctional as usual. We just need to placate the damn cat anyway.
>>27738415This. We may have seen her, but chances are it was just a hallucination. While she is a superb callidus we WERE pretty out of it. But we are pretty sure she was somewhere around there, since Yuu detected her.
Well I guess the Lunarians cut Decu's communications again.
>>27738476Next comes the shield generators, they must come down for their attack to succeed
>>27738476>implying Deculture isn't a magical girl from the first officio>implying hes not making a quest about something that actually happened>implying decultures not [spoiled]getting raped by pinky up there[/spoiler]
>>27738116>I think Coobie knows more than we knowof course you do. That's his schtick.He always knows more than we do. The trick is figuring out exactly what it is he knows that we don't that he isn't going to volunteer, what he suspects and is simply trying to get confimation of, and what he doesn't know and is trying to lure out of us.There's a reason everybody hates dealing with Incubators.
>>27738123It isn't. There's an optimum amount of squishiness, however. A point at which the ice cream is JUST melted enough to be soft, without being a liquid.That exact point is when you can eat ALL the Ice Cream.
You take a long, deep drag from your cigarette, before telling your boss exactly what he wanted to hear. Namely, the bit about the Magical Girls that did their level best to try and reduce you into a greasy stain on the astroturf wasn't actually gunning for Ruri - they were gunning for you, under orders from the Prophet. Kirishima Ruri was simply collateral damage, a way to make an example of the Ninth Officio....No, you didn't tell him about Wendy. That would be crazy. You're not sure about her yet, anyway - and if she IS here, then you'd want to find her yourself, first."Yes, I gleaned that much from comms traffic, and what Karasawa briefed me on." Kyuubey muses, sounding more amused than anything else. "While I must say this could potentially be a complicating factor if anyone else requests for your personal protection, Matsuda, I cannot help but admire this...Prophet's dedication to getting your attention. It reminds me of a much simpler time, before the Officio System was fully established."Well, you're glad he's finding this a riot. Was it really better back then?"What?" The Incubator blinks at you, incredulous. "Oh, no. It was a disorganized, bloody mess. We never got anything done properly, and the Witch population was at an all-time high. A system needed to be formalized and established - if we'd allowed the status quo back then to persist, the Heat Death Incident we'd been working to delay would have occured in no less than two, three years." Another sigh, one that sounded remarkably bitter, even for someone like Kyuubey. "It's all thanks to the First that I managed to get the rest of my brothers to agree to my proposition."He clears his throat, here. "In any case. As amusing as this Prophet is, allowing her to continue unopposed may present unforeseen complications in the long run. I'll be pushing up this matter a bit higher up the priority ladder - the sooner we can have this resolved, the better."[1/2]
>>27738518Deculture must be drawing somewhere else, he has his old name on
>>27738518>the Heat Death Incident we'd been working to delay would have occured in no less than two, three yearswhatpinky what did you dooooo
>>27738518Are there any leads, yet? You remember assigning the other rank leaders duties about this."No concrete ones, excluding what information we may be able to obtain from your victims, Matsuda. I believe Rea Ashford may have a theory in the works, but you'll have to approach her personally for that. And speaking of your victims, do you have their Soul Gems, still?"You nod, here. A bit of rifling in your inventory, and you place them on the bench, in front of the Incubator. Three Soul Gems, glowing brightly, but slowly darkening. After a moment, you also plunk down Ayumu's Soul Gem as well, and Kyuubey nods in approval. "I'll go ahead and take these. Mami has expressed an interest in talking to them, herself - she knows of what they did to that civilian. Needless to say she has a few choice words about the matter." There's a disturbing crunching sound as the scarlet teardrop emblem on Kyuubey's back seems to swallow up each Soul Gem as they're dropped onto it. "I'll make sure she doesn't get too carried away, as I'm sure you want to do most of the interrogating yourself. At least, with these three. As for Kasuga's, I'll have her restored to her natural state as soon as possible."Right. Well. You have to hand it to the mutant cat, he's certainly responsible. ...Also, Mami's doing the interrogation? Oh, man. You almost feel bad for Lucius and her crew.Almost, anyway."She never said anything to the effect, but she did express the desire to talk to them before you do. Rest assured it'll be done in the safety of a Silent Room, in case they try anything." It's here that Kyuubey opens his mouth to yawn - another feline trait, one he seems to have no trouble emulating at all. "After Kirishima Ruri dismisses you tomorrow morning, I expect you to report back to the Headquarters as soon as you can for your debriefing."[2/3]
>>27738513OK, but I like my ice cream icy like sorbet. Also with nuts and chocolate sauce.CRUNCH
>>27738539>she did express the desire to talk to them before you doworry.jpg
>>27738539He yawns again, before hopping off of the bench and stretching his legs. "In any case, Matsuda, I'll take my leave. Unless you have anything more to say?"...There is something. (Write-in.)No. Nothing else, boss.
>>27738540For point of reference, vanilla ice cream in it's semi melted state tastes almost exactly like a vanilla cream frappucino.
>>27738539>she did express the desire to talk to them before you doNot sure if shadowruns or...It's just...It really hits my suspicion trigger when this specific desire is expressed.I REALLY DON'T WANT TO BE SUSPICIOUS OF MAMI-SAN, BUT SHE'S MAKING IT DIFFICULT WHEN SHE SAYS SHIT LIKE THIS.
Rolled 10>>27738558>...There is something. (Write-in.)We dont need to tell him that wendy help us but at least that shes here. Yuu did detect her after her.
>>27738573I don't know, if someone murdered a civilian to make a mockup corpse of me, I'd probably want to smack them around with the butt of a rifle a little bit.Just think of it as tenderizing them for our questioning later.
>>27738558[x] Ask to sit in on Mami's interrogations, with guarantees that you'll stay silent and out of sight.
>>27738558[X]...There is something. (Write-in.)We may have met Wendy from the 8th Officio. (Tell him the details) Also, Faust seems to have the ability to disable time stop, is there any way we could look into fixing that?>>27738594Yes>>27738593Given her status of having a golden weapon, and insistence that it's before we talk to them, I'm kinda suspicious of her.
>>27738558[X] No, nothing else
>>27738558[x]...There is something."Mami can have the girls from the crowd, but not those three. I might be able to turn two of them fairly easily, and Lucius... I don't want her anywhere near Mami, silent room or not.Also, see about lightening Mami's workload. She needs a little more time to herself."
>>27738597>>27738605Both of these. Also mention that the golden weapons have the souls of their users in them. Our...unusually. exemplary performance on the field tonight was in part thanks to Yuu, the girl inhabiting our gloves.
>>27738539>mami engineered that entire event>implying it won't end up where the "prophet" is a legitimately good person we need to save from mami being a sociopath and end up having to kill mami because of her golden weapon musket bullshit.>implying she really cares about chiaki in the least because she is a royal pain in the ass.>implying this won't be the wedge that splits us from the officio and start the noiring in massshadowruns intensify.jpg
>>27738605Eh, but even if the golden flintlock is involved somehow, they're not exactly pals with the Blessed Lady. And Mami's not going to make a mess of them.And also Chiaki doesn't know about Mami's golden weapon, so she probably has no reason to be suspicious.
>>27738558[x]...There is something. (Write-in.)Specifically, one thing Lucius said is nagging at me, "Remember how many of us she killed--" You probably have better records than my fucked memory, but Lucius has ties to some large group I must have done some work on.The only one that comes to mind is the incident with the third when I officially became Murderface.
Fucksake, don't tell him about Wendy. It isn't important at all.
>>27738558>No. Nothing else, boss.Wendy is officially dead.If she's somehow actually here, there's no point in dragging the Officio into this until she becomes a factor.It might be worthwhile logging her name someplace for anyone following Chiaki's trail, but... leave her off the office paperwork for now.
>>27738594It's an older name he's used. Guess he got distracted and clicked on the wrong one.
>>27738531>>27738605I thought he was someone else. And didn't Misaka already tell us that Chiaki's Shield is already broken beyond conventional means to repair?>>27738558>[X] "Could I not be tasked with bodyguard duty next time? People around me have the tendency to be caught up in whatever's trying to kill me."
>>27738558Offer him a cigarette for shits and giggles.
>>27738650If we say that QB will just point out we chose this job.
>>27738641>this chick who admits to serving the blessed lady is back from the dead>Not importantHmm.
>>27738631Yeah, I'm just speaking as a player. In character Chiaki has no reason to really object, unless she thinks they'll hurt Mami's feelings or something.>>27738645Does Chiaki actually know that Wendy is supposed to be dead? It's mentioned on her NECO profile, but if she's read that, she didn't react to it at all in the narrative.
>>27738668so tangentinal question:are we basically "the blessed ladys" avatar?because of the fact she literally lives in our shield.
>>27738650>Could I not be tasked with bodyguard duty next time>complaining to your boss about an assignment that you could have given to someone else.
>>27738558[x] seconding >>27738633
>>27738641>Later on, Wendy has started a killing spree"How long have you known that shes alive?""Since the idol thing.""Why didn't you tell me that one of the deadliest magical girls in history isn't dead?""It didn't seem important. "
>>27738666>>27738691It just sounded like something Chiaki would say. I mean he did mention that the client specifically asked for us, even if we could say no.>>27738687Not on purpose, no. Whatever Lucius said on the matter doesn't count.
>>27738687I don't think we can put our relationship with Pinky in to one word. We're her ex girlfriend, killer, murder victim, favourite toy, friend, object of hatred, chosen golden weapon wielder, and god knows what else.
>>27738687If we were, we'd be a lot more indulging of her whims. We also wouldn't think that she acts like a fucking child most of the time.
>>27738673>Does Chiaki actually know that Wendy is supposed to be dead?As well as the Neco profiles, I seem to recall that Wendy actually told her as much in one of her dreams.So we have a claim and independent verification. Good enough for a gumshoe, I'd say.
>>27738673She said outright that she'd died before. I think the second time we met her? That the Blessed Lady brought her back, too.
>>27738687>are we basically "the blessed ladys" avatar?No. Homura Akemi may have been, though.
>>27738712This.Which is why its kiiiiind of important that we tell someone. Pinky interfering with our ex cannot be good news. You all know how jealous she gets. Theres something more going on here.
>>27738666>>27738691Do I really have to say this again?The job description was MISLEADING. It indicated that Chiaki would just be standing around looking pretty shit and fending off grabby idol hands.>>27738696What. Seriously, what? The 8th Officio is full of MUCH more violent and dangerous girls than Wendy. She was probably one of the least obviously insane girls there!
>>27738742Yuuka with an incomprehensibly thick Southern drawl is still the one thing that sticks in my mind.
>>27738742Yeah, thats exactly why shes dangerous. She knows how to be SUBTLE.
>>27738742The job description was one line. It could have meant anything. From all we knew at the time the clients idea of "a good time" may have been fighting others to the death for her amusement.
>>27738708Also probably her waifu.
>>27738759I knew I forgot one.
Ice cream update:It was pretty good, nya.
>>27738742>>27738742>The job description was MISLEADING. It indicated that Chiaki would just be standing around looking pretty shit and fending off grabby idol hands.We've not had a job description that hasn't been misleading since the day we woke up as Chiaki Matsuda.Welcome to the Meguka business, kid.
>>27738770Better for being melted, right?
>>27738770I keep forgetting that the grace period for votes is only 20 minutes. Damn.>>27738772Still better than the shtick the Megukas got before QB decided to get organized. Now you only get fucked over on the job!Wait...
>>27738777Well, it was already pretty soft, but melting didn't actually hurt it. I'm just nyurotic about food temperature.
>>27738753If she was subtle then how the fuck did she get a reputation as 'one of the deadliest'?>>27738756That would have been INFINITELY preferable.>>27738772>Kirika Kure has gone batshit insane, are you a bad enough dude to murder the shit out of her?That one was pretty straightforward. Only Mami's interference really complicated anything.
>>27738812And our first assignment with Iori would've gone without a hitch of those Otaku didn't hire Green Green.Then again, we wouldn't meet said waifu either.And then there's the whole debacle with Kilgore.
>>27738812She got on and pff the field without anyone noticing. She could have killed us or Ruri or whoever she wanted and noone would know until she was gone.Thats like asking why Agent 47 has a reputation for being one of the deadliest men in the world.Also she killed Yuu. Or beat her. Can't remember which.
>>27738835We could have killed Midori then and there, but we decided to interrogate her.We could have executed her when we were done, but we were curious about why someone would agree to do that sort of job and asked about it.Decu could have made up a heartless bitch response, but he went for a sob story instead.We could have decided to put her out of her misery, but we decided to take her under our wing.Miracle Midori indeed.
>>27738539>>27738558[x] No, nothing.>Needless to say she has a few choice words about the matter.>Getting lectured by MammiesB-B-But thats not a punishment at all!
>>27738812>>Kirika KureThat was anything but a straight retirement, and you know it.Golden weapons, black eyes and confronting the Eversor rank leader in hand to hand instead of sniping her like a proper fucking Vindicare.
>>27738858"I'm very disappointed in you.">You feel a piercing sense of shame, right down to your very soul.
>>27738857There's also Midori saving Chiaki in Siberia, despite being a relatively weak Callidus. Even going so much as to put down Kharn the Betrayer with two hard slaps and some stern scolding.We seriously need to give her Eversor + Vindicare training.
>You are now aware that everyone loves Midori, just like in her wish.Even Pinky is willing to give her the time of day.
>>27738857That's one of the most interesting things about this quest, Midori was originally a one-off villain, but she ended up becoming what's basically the secondary protagonist.
>>27738835None of those things were under the client's control.Every single fucking thing about this mission, EXCEPT for Mine (which she should have told us about sooner) and the Prophet's Harem, was Ruri herself being a lying, manipulative bitch.>>27738844>She could have killed us or Ruri or whoeverBUT SHE DIDN'T, BECAUSE SHE HAS NO REASON NOR DESIRE TO DO SO. She is not a threat. Everyone assuming she is a threat is retarded. Yeah, she has a Golden Mask or whatever; we can settle ownership of that with a friendly duel to the death.>she killed Yuu. Or beat her.Almost killed. Kilgore is the one that did her in.
>>27738875>putting down a Warmaster with a stern scoldingMaybe we should apprentice her to Mami.
>>27738890> BUT SHE DIDN'T, BECAUSE SHE HAS NO REASON NOR DESIRE TO DO SO. She is not a threat. Everyone assuming she is a threat is retarded.Yeah. To us.But ask yourself. Why did the normally insanely jealous Pinky bring her back from the dead?
>>27738868Uh. We did snipe her. We just needed to be bait to make her stand still.>>27738875>relatively weak CallidusI thought QB said she was top-tier?
>>27738911We didn't do the sniping, we were fighting her head-on and letting someone else do it.
>>27738909>Why did the normally insanely jealous Pinky bring her back from the dead?There's no answer to that question I like.
>>27738911Decu said in a post thread Q&A that Midori is VERY good at her job as a stealth and infiltration specialist. Not so good at combat, I'd guess.
>>27738930Which is exactly why we need to tell Coobie.
>>27738890You mean her rigging that lucky ticket contest? Or am I forgetting something? (Again.)>>27738892We really should. Midori has some serious potential. Maybe not as a Callidus but she's definitely got something.>>27738926That was Misaka at the rifle, Sayaka was there to cover her.Which reminds me, who is best imouto? Misaka or Yuu?>>27738911She was facing down Kharn-Skulltaker-fucking-Valnikhov. I was under the assumption that her old Officio wouldn't give her a break, probably due to the fact that she isn't all that good.My memory is spotty at best since I blitzed through the MGNQ archives in order to catch up to right now.
>>27738926>We just needed to be bait to make her stand still.Did you miss this part? We knew that we wouldn't have the element of surprise, we knew about her time-dilation ability, and we knew she was the Officio's top Eversor. We planned that encounter out because it was the only way to succeed.>>27738930She wants to touch the fluffy tail too.
>>27738940>>27738943>>27738892I was wrong then. Apprentice her under Enishi AND Mami?
>>27738942Under Noir law, we are required to not tell the boss anything. Instead, we write her name in a notebook which we keep on our person, so the poor schlub who finds our corpse in an alley has something to go off.
>>27738890She is not currently a threat, and has other significant hostile influences that have a hold on her. She's potentially a threat.Mentioning it just in case is probably a good thing. At least saying "Oh, we detected a magical girl who was previously supposed to be dead. Probably not important, but.. yeah. Might need to update our records."
>>27738943I miss Misaka. I hope we see her again soon.
>>27738949And for all that we still got our knife through her chest and into her spine.
>>27738959Apprentice her under Wendy.
>>27738962>our corpse>has been shot, stabbed, dismembered, turned into a fucking Witch, brought back from said Witchdom, had an impromptu heart surgery courtesy of one jealous ex...Yeah, no.>>27738970Yep. I want to see how Tiny Pete is doing as well.And Bolt Pistols! We need to have Misaka reverse-engineer some for us. Could even become a secondary firearm for all 9th Officio Megucas!
>>27738979But Midori is on top!
>>27738943>forgetting somethingFailing to mention the HUGE FUCKING CROWD when we were supposed to be 'meeting her for breakfast'.Failing to mention the live webcam going out to potentially millions of viewers.Deliberately timing her and Iori practising of the MMxMM voice acting right as we got to the door.Doing every fucking thing in her power to irritate us, just to see how we tick.
>>27738975The tactic's worked twice so far. It really puts people off guard when you get stabbed. As long as you succeed in getting the last enemy's head blown off before you keel over, then it's fine!
>>27738943Midoris old Officio treated her badly because they consider Callidus useless from what she said. What with the not being good at killing things.She did pretty well with our bolter and rifle while fighting off bears though, giving her some pro weapon training might be promising.
>>27738991Well, Chiaki is clearly a sub in bed, so if she's gonna learn the important stuff Wendy would need to let her be on top.
>>27738909Wrong oneFrom what I understood actual Madoka brought her back from the dead, Pinky wasn't driving the crazy goddess train at that momentSame as she did with Midori>>27738844Fought her to a standstill with her knife while Yuu supposedly had her GIANT FISTS OF FISTINGNever mentioned one way or the other either one dieing in the fight
>>27738991>>27739013She's a fast learner.
>>27738995Honestly, who really gives a shit about all that? None of it was a REAL problem like suicide bombing magical girls. Just minor annoyances.
>>27739011>they consider Callidus useless from what she said.Why are you so dumb Juubey?
>Protoculture>Only had a filter for Deculturegood thing I checked twitter as soon as I got online or I would have missed a lot more!
>>27738995I don't see how that's a problem compared to Iori nearly getting raped and us falling under Midori's illusions or fucking DaemonPrince!Kilgore.I will agree that it's annoying as fuck, triggering Shadowruns left and right like she did.>>27739011>Callidus>them not being good at killing thingsDo they even Ninja/Kunoichi?And yes, we really have to get her some training. Just to repeat it for emphasis
>>27739011>Midoris old Officio treated her badly because they consider Callidus useless from what she said.I suspect Jyuubey has been trying to battery farm witches using Callidus illusions. Which is part of why he wanted Midori back.
>>27738979That's a lot of un-spilled spaghetti (by way of Chiaki) you're looking at, mate.
>>27739028The other girls considered Midori useless. Jyubey was desperately trying to get her back.
>>27739011I don't think we ever heard anything like that from the 10th, and Jyubey seems pretty fucking intent on getting Midori back for some reason.
pastebin.com/nHtjWDxJ Anyone else would get shot if they posted this kind of thing = 3 = Well, I'm the best, you nTHE CAT IS BACK
>>27739034Midori has never killed anyone and doesn't really seem to want to start.Fighting witches and familiars sure, but we've got combat specialists for that already.
More NECO>@MGsAreReal: Anyone else would get shot if they posted this kind of thing = 3 = Well, I'm the best, you nya.And a pastebin link that filter thinks is spam
>>27738943>>27739011You seem to forget the most important thing: Midori doesnt like killing. -While Incubators have no known sexual characteristics, it’s a well-known rumor that he prefers early bloomers with D-cups full of hopes and dreams.>D-cups full of hopes and dreams.NECOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
>>27739076She doesn't need to but considering Chiaki's luck, she will need that. Just in case.There's also the fucking Prophet and I wouldn't put it past her to learn about Chiaki and Midori before trying harm the latter to get at the former.
>>27739080>>27739086Even nonsexual species love Mami. This shouldn't be unusual knowledge to you!I do wonder what made Kyubey change business paragdims.
>>27739086>While Incubators have no known sexual characteristics, it’s a well-known rumor that he prefers early bloomers with D-cups full of hopes and dreams.FuckingCat
>>27739086>>27739076>>27739073I get the feeling its more peer pressure than official policy.
>>27739089Refer to: >>27739086Again, Midori doesn't need to kill for us; but with Chiaki being a target for so many people, there will inevitably come a time that she will have to. Either to save herself or to save us.>>27739093He probably found out that the whole Officio shtick was more efficient than the rut they had going in canon.Incubators love efficiency.
>>27739086>>Kyubey likes big boobsno wonder he let Kharn get away with so much shit. Also explains why he rewrote a contract, a move frowned upon, to save Midori
>>27739104>>27739086Refer to: >>27739089Damn it all.>>27739110So much for Incubators being emotionless.
> -Apparently, Kyuubey used to be a much crueler negotiator that would answer any complaints with ‘You didn’t ask.’ This changed sometime early in the Ninth Officio’s life for reasons concerning shifting business paradigms*.Maybe we should talk to him about this. Would we be justified in hating the old him, in his opinion?
>>27739104>He probably found out that the whole Officio shtick was more efficient than the rut they had going in canon.To be honest, I kind of doubt that seeing as the payoff for Kriemhild Gretchen should be enough to stave off heat death for... pretty much universality, it looked like.
>>27739110So THATS why his peers think hes insane.
>>27739130And why hes so close to the Pimpcubator.
>>27739128He has Walpurgisnacht chained up in that little basement of his in Siberia. At this point, I'm just making conjectures without anything solid. I.E. Pulling out of my ass.
>>27739130>>27739137All the other incubators love DFC. They think Coobs & 8ball are crazy for liking big tits.
>>27739116You don't have to have emotions to do what's frowned upon. For the contract, if it works, it works. Favouring one class of girls (those of hopes and dreams) can also lead to efficiency increases - any organisation in complete harmony also will be slack; one needs some competition and rivalry to get things done. Also hopes and dreams are good things for an incubator to rest their laurels on.
>2013>Not being part of a government wet team made to target magical girls>not giving her the double tap
>>27739147There's a good question right there. If Faust "hatches", then would the incubators be able to harvest the energy of the birth of the god-witch? At that point, all bets are off.
>>27739128except it shouldnt have been. The only reason Gretchen was as powerful as she was is the time loop Homura had built up.It's also a fair bet that the wraiths seen at the end of Madoka are actually witch-spawn from the 100+ failed timelimes where Madoka didn't ascend.
>>27739140In that case, consider Jyubey and Kyuubey to be my favorite Incubators for having good taste.>>27739150The sweeter the dreams, the more bitter the despair?I'm guessing that Kyuubey had the "complete harmony" thing in mind, which is why he had his fellow Incubators set up their own Officios and not condemning any rivalry between them that isn't bordering on outright hostility.
>>27739157>wet teamwell if they're female then interacting with MGs might make them wet I guess.
>>27739150> Also hopes and dreams are good things for an incubator to rest their laurels on.>Kyuubey popping his head out of Mamis cleavage.
>>27739182I would pay to see a whole team of Spec Ops Megucas, including adopting the whole tacticool schtick.
>>27739205I read that as tacticool schlick.
>>27739178Complete harmony is actually a good way to avoid despair, actually; if that harmony's matched together with victory. People are in fact resilient things; they survive catastrophe effectively - people will adapt to loss of houses, loss of limbs, crippling injury, death of loved ones. They manage to get over it, for the most part.What people don't get over, what causes despair, anger, upset; is repeated failure, failure that is rubbed in again and again in a dozen different ways. There are quite a few coping mechanisms for this, including blaming others for it, but overall it's a longer term repeated little defeats that really lead to falling into despair.See: Sayaka and her cavalcade of failure, Homura nearly witching out in the last epsiode before Madoka steps in to save the day. See counterpoint: Mami going batshit crazy and shooting Kyouko in the soul gem before getting put down - note that she didn't in fact witch out herself.
>>27739273I suspect that Kyuubey is going for the combo-breaker.Take out Mami and there's good odds that you'll witch out half his officio.
>>27739239I have no words, truly.>>27739273Repeated failure with no readily apparent chance of victory. People will shoot for the long odds when they think they have even the slightest chance of winning.Hell, the only thing I can think of that tanks more defeats and keeps on trucking would be X-Com; speaking of which is bloody addictive.How do you do the spoiler thing, by the way?
>>27738979ntr a shit, have some improvements
>>27739282On the other hand, Kyuubey could be playing a completely different ball game to what the other incubators think he is.It's entirely plausible that he set the whole thing up as either a cover or to buy time for his other plans to kick off.
>>27739282Sounds counter-productive given all the effort he's invested in his Officio concept, including having to convince all his "brothers" to adopt it.
>>27739317That? That's great.Time for threesome.
>>27739317I almost didn't see Chiaki's face there. Bravo.
>>27739314for pictures there's a box to click. for text it's ctrl + s
>>27739322You're not mixing your Shadowruns with your Inceptions.Plots within plots within plots within Leonardo diCaprio within plots.
>>27739318He does have some long term plan as hinted in his flashback episode.I think he wants to take over the entire operation on earth, or make sure when they are done he gets the most out of the entire thing.
>>27739337Many thanks.>>27739340I'll pass. That Xanathos shenanigans always irks me.If a convoluted plan has the same effectiveness as driving a sledgehammer to someone's face, you use that godddamn sledgehammer. Everytime.
>>27739365Maybe QB treats his girls better than the others because he's building a loyal army to take home and make himself emperor of Incubator planet.
>>27739318>>27739322>>27739282Sustainable is probably reasonable. Lukewarm mass produced despair compared to sharp keening agonised personally produced despair.Less chance of fucking up and accidentally your entire planet of people with emotions.
>>27739377>If a convoluted plan has the same effectiveness as driving a sledgehammer to someone's face, you use that godddamn sledgehammer. Everytime.I'm betting Jyubey is using the sledgehammer and Kyubey is using the complicated plan. And currently Kyubey is winning.
>>27739392...Then it doesnt have the same effectiveness, you dolt.
>>27739392>If a convoluted plan has the [b]same effectiveness[/b]That's what I meant. It means convoluted plan has more effectiveness than the sledgehammer at the moment.>>27739404Exactly, thanks.
>>27739404yes, that was the point I was trying to drive home. well done.
>>27738633 >>27738576...Yes, there is something. You remember something that Lucius had said, earlier, while you were beating the shit out of her and her goons. Something about remembering how many of them you killed. It sounds like a lead to you. Does he have any records of you getting on the wrong side of another Officio in the past? You remember Kharn telling you about what happened with you and the Third.Kyuubey blinks at this. "Hm. That does sound like it deserves some looking into. Besides the incident that started it, there was also another that happened a few weeks after the Third transferred most of its contracts to me." He shakes his head. "You very nearly didn't survive that one."What? Another incident? One you almost died in?"I'll brief you about it some other time, Matsuda. Perhaps tomorrow. But I'll have someone look into your theory, see if it could lead to something." With that, he turns to leave again, but you stop him before he could take another step."Yes? Matsuda, we do have a timetable to adhere to, even now. Make it quick."...You open your mouth to tell him about Wendy, but you close it after a moment. It's...no. You can't tell him, not now, not when you're not even sure if it was real or not. Maybe it was, and maybe, hilariously, you did sexually harass your dead ex in the middle of a field while you were half-delirious from blood loss. But you want to confirm it yourself, first.Instead, you ask him if there's any chance that your procedure could make you see hallucinations, enough that they seem to be real. Even when they're not supposed to be.[1/2]
>>27739436"..." Kyuubey is silent for a moment, before nodding. "For a time, after Malal's death, Kharn went insane. Not in her usual, skull-collecting way that could pass for typical Eversor behavior these days, but in the way that she was useless to everyone. She locked herself in her own room, admitting no one in. The first week, all we heard from her was her crying for Malal. Begging her to return. Begging for her forgiveness. And more than anything else, crying about how she'd betrayed the one oath that mattered."The Incubator pauses, here. "The next week, she stopped crying. We heard her talking to someone, despite it being a fact that she was completely alone, and without any means of communicating with the outside world. She even stepped out of her room for the first time, and walked down the corridor, as if nothing had ever happened, talking to someone beside her, even if there was clearly no one there. Did you know who she was talking to, Matsuda?"Malal? You venture here.Kyuubey nods. "Valnikov Kharn was hallucinating that Malal was still alive, walking beside her. It was unnerving, to say the least. We tried to convince her that Malal was truly gone, that she was simply delusional - but she was utterly convinced of it that she almost killed Tomoe Mami herself in the process. But she didn't, because the Malal in her mind stopped her, and reminded her of who she was. Omegon deactivated her Soul Gem the moment Tomoe Mami was clear, and we had her drugged and unconscious for another week before she woke up and asked to be able to mourn her best friend's death properly. We took that as a sign that she was back."[2/3]
>>27739453I'm really curious about how Malal died.
>>27739453The Incubator lets out a sigh. "What I'm trying to get at, here, Matsuda, is that there is evidence that the procedure could have made you see a hallucination, one that might have been real enough, that you'd be convinced. I am not saying this is the unimpeachable truth, but merely the conclusion that has the highest probability of being true." He looks at you. "Did you see something after all, then, Matsuda? Would you tell me who it is?". . .Someone from your past who's supposed to be dead. You're...not too sure who she was, but she should be dead."Well, that clears it up a bit, then." Kyuubey nods. "The dead do not come back to life, Matsuda. A hallucination, nothing more. Put it out of your mind." It's here that he finally leaves, loping out of sight with remarkable alien cat speed.You let out a sigh yourself, before sitting back down on the bench. You take one last drag from your dying cigarette, before letting it fall down onto the floor to be ground out of its misery with your heel.. . .Fuck everything about this mission. And idols.[3/4]
>>27739436>>27739453Now this pretty much explains why Kharn was so unfazed when Malal showed up in the Barrier and just dismissed her instantly.
>>27739507And lets not forget that Malal is probably still chilling inside our soulgem.
>>27739507I wonder if she STILL sees Malal, but just accepts it as a part of her damaged psyche.>>27739527Still want to ask QB about that, if two souls could get stuck in one gem. Not now though, the timing would be fucked.
>>27739502>>27739507>>27739540Malal has been talking to Kharn all along, QB just thinks it's a hallucination.
Hey guys something is fucking with me. I remember about a week ago rereading something Lucius said something that taken in the right context if huge. But I can't remember what the hell I"m thinking of.
Sometimes I want Decu to just tell us what the hell is going on.And then I remember that half the fun of this is fumbling around in the dark searching for answers to things we should already know.
>>27739554Malal would know if she was haunting Kharn and wouldn't let her do something stupid like try to kill Mami.
>>27739568The person the Prophet sacrificed?
It all makes sense. Coobs likes tittays. Murderface likes ass.THAT'S why she hates him.
>>27739575uhbutthats exactly what happenedmalal stopped kharn
>>27739575Look again:>>27739453>but she was utterly convinced of it that she almost killed Tomoe Mami herself in the process. But she didn't, because the Malal in her mind stopped her,
>>27739502The concert formally came to close about half an hour later after that. Thankfully, no further incident occured - even during the bit where you had to escort Ruri out of the fan-choked stadium. Surprisingly - or not so surprisingly - you yourself were surrounded more than a couple of times, with hordes of fans screaming to get your autograph, or even get a photograph of you. Sayaka, Enishi and even Deepthroat had to physically hold you back from shooting a particularly-grabby fan who tried to steal your glasses.In any case, you're back at the Hotel now, in Ruri's own suite, with the building secured once more. Kyuubey even sent over two more Vindicare squads to provide overwatch from the nearby buildings, just in case something came up again, or if Tojo Group decided to get back at you. Yoshitaka Mine, the representative you knocked out earlier, was reported to have been carried out by his goons just after the concert."Wah, that was the best concert I've ever had in ages!" Ruri is still glowing with praise, even after having bent your ear in the limousine ride on the return trip. "Everyone's saying that they've never seen such an awesome plug for an anime that's not even out yet!" She does a spin in her rather revealing underwear, here - the idol in the middle of disrobing for her bath. "I hope Green Green-sama's happy, wherever she is! I'm making her masterpiece into something legendary!"...Yeah. Yeah, probably. You're just lounging at the couch, now, resting your aching, tired everything. You'll...probably get a bath after your client does. You just want to be clean for some reason.Probably all the fucking dried blood making your costume stick to you, eh? That, or you're slowly learning how to upkeep hygiene like a fucking human being again.[4/5]
>>27739588Why would that make her hate him? That means there's no competition between the two. If nothing else threeways
>>27739595Tit men are inherently inferior. It's a natural hate.
>>27739594"You think so, Chiaki-chan?" Ruri beams at you. "Haha, well, I really hope that's the case! If having actual Magical Girls duke it out like that during the song that's going to be playing during signature fight scenes doesn't get her pumped up, nothing will!" She punches the air with a novice's clumsy enthusiasm a couple of times. "Yah! Hyaah! Fuck your face PUNCH!"...She really gets a bang out of this Magical Girl stuff, huh?"I told you!" Ruri grins. "I love Magical Girls!"You shake your head. Idols will be idols. She should get ready for bed, in any case. You'll be staying up for guard duty again."...Aww, really?" It's here that Ruri pouts. "Can't you grant me this one favor and sleep beside me, Chiaki-chan? I mean, we won't see each other ever again after tomorrow, right?"She's not going to give that up either?"Please, Chiaki-chan!" Ruri falls dramatically in front of you, bowing in the way peasants throw themselves at the mercy of samurai. "Just this one time, please!"How do you respond?Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.No.
>>27739581No it was something bigger. Something that I basically freak the hell out over for like 20 minutes after it came together and was going to mention the possibility here. But I had a lot of shit to get done and forgot the bloody thing.It was a really offhanded comment somewhere that meant something about pinky I think. I'll have to recheck later today.
>>27739619Can we split the difference and maybe spend part of the night but not all? If we can, [x] Split the difference.
Oh lawdy.Here we go.
Rolled 1>>27739619>[x]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.Just this once. We've earned a good nice sleep.
>>27739619[x] Yeah, nah.
>>27739619>[x]No.We made our point yesterday and we're staying with that.
>>27739619[x] Do it, but don't bathe.Murderface experience.
>>27739619[x] Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.Like hell we'll actually get any sleep. And even if we do, Wendy!>>27739631>1Hahaha!
>>27739619>[X] No.Nope, no, nein, nyet. Not even once. We have had ENOUGH of her shit.
>>27739619>[X]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up."But get to friendly and we're going to have a problem."
>>27739619>No.Midori gets crazy jealous.
>>27739619>[x]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.
>>27739619>Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.
>>27739641Maybe we should re-open some wound, gotta give her the deluxe treatment.
[x]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.If just because we might see Wendy in our sleep.In b4 Ruri tries on the bangles.Any votes for drugging her?
>>27739619Fine, sure if you really want it more than anything else
[x]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.We've just been stabbed. Nice bed. Don't care.
>>27739619"If I were to give you that, what would be left to keep you interested in the perpetual train wreck that is my life?"
>>27739619[x]Sleep with the idol, nothing can go wrong here
>>27739619>[x]No.Simply because Pinky is always watching, and she's in a foul mood right now, and this would expose Ruri.
>>27739619[x]No.AWW HELL NOThis is just begging for some kind of "Wake up screaming in a 'nam style flashback while we're strangling Ruri."
>>27739619>[x]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.But no horizontal monster mash.
>>27739619>[X]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.Get on the bed, but don't sleep. That's the best we can do.
>>27739657>[X] Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.Midori gets crazy jealous.
>>27739675Oh yeh, I should leave this here before I go to bed.
>>27739619[X]No, you wouldn't want to steal me away from Miracle Midori, would you?
>>27739676We're still on the job. PROFESSIONAL
>>27739619[X] Pull up a chair and sleep beside her bed. Compromise. She's been much more tolerable as of late
>>27739619[x]OtherGet Enishi to disguise herself as us and take one for the team
>>27739619[x]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.
>>27739702that is actually more tempting that it has any right to be.
>>27739702We just made it clear we don't sacrifice our underlings to terrible fates.
>>27739678>let go, staring in horror at what we've done>"No... please, don't stop... I'm so clooooose..."
>>27739619[x]No.Never heard a worse idea. I don't want us waking up with her bloody corpse next to us.
>>27739619[X]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.
>>27739702This would be funny, and might help Enishi get rid of her virginity at the same time.
>>27739619[x] No. *cross forearms dramatically and stare into her eyes* NO.
>>27739619[X] Fuck no.People are sure going full HUE tonight. Bye bye dignity! Right after we'd impressed Coobs too. Won't he be disappointed! And I'm sure that Mami will be impressed by how we sleep with all the idols we meet!
>>27739619>[x]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.time to noir it up
>>27739709To be fair, Enishi clearly needs a roll in the hay with _someone_But yeah, no. You've got a point. Chiaki don't approve of non magical girl entanglements.
>>27739619Nope. No. Uh uh. NOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>27739709Not on public Tv and we need every one we can get for support.But this is survivable so while it is a fate worse then death it also won't compromise her too much. Other then some slight PTSD which I'm sure she'll get over.
>>27739619No. Not in a million years.
>>27739619>[x]Fine. Sure. Whatever it takes for you to shut up.haha. Huehuehue

FIVE MINUTES LEFTVOTE FASTER
>>27739769Because Idols need to maintain their pure image otherwise their fans get butthurt. Some Idol Otaku in real life have burnt mercahndise when they found out their waifu had a secret boyfriend.
Shit nigga thats a lotta votes.
Chiaki sleeping with Ruri is just not a thing that should ever happen.Why would you even make this an option, Deculture?
How can I hold all this samefagging for muh way?

>>27739822Please for to not abuse the idol.
>>27739791Because she's just been stabbed and Ruri's going to nag and fuck it's a comfortable bed let's just go to sleep dammitSleeping in the same bed as someone isn't going to do anything, especially when we've just been stabbed.
Rolled 18>>27739813With the aufience òf mgñq. That is far more likwly when folks first post.
>>27739817technically, but... not on the job, and only because it was either share a bed or sleep on some ammo crates.

>>27739838Yes we did. We woke up in the same bed as her later in our apartment.
>>27739822You want to damage an idols face? When she's our client? Are you really this retarded?
DANCE, MY SAMEFAGSDANCE FOR THE MASTER
>>27739845By my count, 20 yes 26 no.Though I may be off a little, the nays have it.
>>27739848>You want to damage an idols face?>implying Murderface has ever met an idol she doesn't want to damage in the face
>>27739855>46 voteI call bullshit
>>27739848>Pinch her a bit to tease her>Damage her faceYou cant be this retarded, right?
>>27739804>>27739813The anons who posted in that stretch of time could just quote all of those posts, and then post a screencap showing that only one of them was theirs. Easy enough to prove no samefagging.
>>27739848We murder faces. It's what we do.
>>27739848Lets damage her knees then.. 55 caliber damage.
>>27739859>implying Iori is still on Chiaki's "people I hate" list.
>>27739848Don't worry. We will be able to shoot her later. Once she is no longer the client.

>>27739855Deduct a -10 samefag tax from each!
>>2773988310 yes 16 no.
>>27739790That's because they are samefagging at the speed of soundCan't let their choice fail after all
>>27739883>Deduct a -10 samefag tax from each!>implying that change anything
>>27739867I'm just going to let kill them all and let Deculture sort it out.
Too bad. I was hoping to have another groping Wendy dream, then wake up with Ruri staring at us while we get a handful of idol butt.
>>27739883...that doesn't actually change the outcome.
>>27739896>anons passed this upMotherfuckers!
>>27739896...please let Ruri be wearing a bedshirt that says that.
Rolled 12>>27739883A samefag timetax would work better.Deeuct time, count votes in the time period.
>>27739894>>27739897Think that was the joke, there, guys.Also that both sides were probably samefagging anyway.
>>27739894>>27739897I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that was a joke.Y'know.Just a little one.
>>27739896But if we do that, we can't wake up from a dream of groping Wendy to find Ruri in our bed "kyaa~"ing, only to find out that 2020 has extended the contract with us after all.
>>27739855Yes - 22No - 22Other - 3All votes that do not follow the rules were eliminated from this count.
Rolled 9Decu should just fiat this one.

>>27739619Fine, whatever it takes
>>27739931A draw! so we... Sleep in a chair with our legs resting on the bed?
>>27739944...You know, I'm starting to wonder if we should just carry the Most Comfortable Chair In The World in our inventory where ever we go.
>>27739943Namely, putting an [X] before one's vote and voting before the 20 minute limit.
>>27739916>>27739914>>27739912What is playing the straight man?
>>27739944Nope, we lay in bed with her until she falls asleep, then get up and stay vigilant for the rest of the night.
>>27739950That is a horrible idea. We would never get anything done.
>>27739950It's a shame that they redecorated this suite or we could just have stolen a second.
>>27739953I don't think that phrase means what you think it means.
>>27739952The former is just being petty, and the latter was excluded anyway. No matter how you look at it there were more nos than yesses.
>>27739971The straight man is a stock character in a comedy performance, especially a double act, comedy sketch, or farce.When his comedy partner behaves eccentrically, the straight man's response ranges from aplomb to outrage, or from patience to frustration. He will often also be found in sitcoms.In the manzai comedy of Japan, the straight man is called tsukkomi.I think I do
>>27739968But we would be comfy
>>27739969We should steal another item of furniture anyway, just out of principle.
>>27739943>>27739944>voting rulesThread 99http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/25195380/#p25195441>[Voting ends in 20 minutes. Only [x] marked votes will be counted.]
>>27739976Just saying, that's what I know of. I never said anything about the veracity of the votes.
>>27739985A comfy Warmaster is a terrible Warmaster. Why do you think Kharn wanted a throne of skulls? You know, other than because it is her fetish.
>>27739976With the massive surge of samefagging I am not surprised there was a lot moreJust means there was less people samefagging on the yes side
>>27739987Maybe we could leave them a Mig to compensate for the chair we stole.
>>27739987we haven't made and Field Expedient Acquisitions this mission yet have we? we must rectify this.
>>27739983You missed out the most important part though. In manzai it's the straight man who gets the laughs from the audience. If nobody realised that you were playing the tsukkomi, then you didn't do it right.
>>27739995I consider the rash of no samefagging to be a direct reaction to the yes samefagging that made it look like we were going to do something VERY out of character.
>>27739993So that she could feel extra badass while admiring her wall of laminated panties?
>>27739997We made 4; all soul gems.They count as explosives, right?
>>27740001Yes, in manzai but this isn't manzai here.
>>27739983There's a difference between playing the straight man and not getting the joke.
>>27740007No, to stay awake while doing all the boring Warmaster things she needed to do. You know, anything that wasn't fighting of fucking.
>>27740023but anytime she needed to do something that wasn't fighting or fucking she palmed it off on Malal.
>>27740014>There's a difference between playing the straight man and not getting the joke.>Taking implying answer seriouslyISHYGDDT
>>27739997We need to steal all the hotel soap and shampoo!
>>27740005This. Seriously. We aren't Kharn and so far our not-Kharnness has only made people think better of us. Don't throw that advantage away for fucking Ruri of all people.
>>27740005I didn't say who started it just that the no's samefagged a lot harder because they want their decision instead of actually leaving it up to the thread to decideBoth sides are shit and both sides are acting like children but the ones coming across worse are the no's for cheating harder regardless of whether it is what you think is in character or not
>>27740036The vote was not to decide if we would fuck Ruri.It was to decide if we would share her bed, while extremely tired, after being stabbed multiple times.
I don't really care either way; nothing more will occur (I'll even jinx it!) that we need to be awake for, and while I personally voted No, if Chiaki managed to sleep in the same bed as Midori with nothing (really) lewd happening, it won't happen here either.
>>27739995Maybe Decu should institute Shadow Quest voting?
>>27740036>for fucking Ruri of all people.Except it's not to fuck her. It was explicitly stated before that she doesn't want to fuck, she just wants to sleep in the same bed as Chiaki. Not even groping or handholding, either.
>>27740053or maybe there were just more people voting for 'no', either way, the winning choice was the more 'in character' one>>27740061he has on previous important votes, and he usually calls for it and outlines the specific voting requirements when he wants the vote conducted like that
>>27740063>>27740054I didn't mean fuck her. I meant it in the sense of 'this fucking person'.And you know that Ruri will spin it in the worst possible way, because thats the kind of person she is.
>>27740071>The winning choice>The vote is actually a draw
>>27740028...this is true. I retract my previous statement. Though the throne is still a good way to stay awake.
>>27740083>Actually a draw only if you willingly and deliberately ignore votesSome draw.
>>27740054The point remains though, that Chiaki's opinion on the matter is well established. We know that Chiaki values her professionalism, and generally doesn't approve of relationships with non-magical girls.This doesn't seem like it should even be something up for vote.
>>27740093>People don't follow rules>Act surprised when they are ignoredDo you have a dark skin or are you part of a victimized minority?
>>27740093Willingly and deliberately ignore votes that don't follow the simple and explicit vote system that was put in place to mitigate ambiguity 40 threads ago, you mean.
>>27740107>>27740108>Ruleslawyering in a fucking Questthread
Hang on.Were the > votes ignored too? Because with them the tally goes above 22 for no
>>27740133If you don't remember the shitstorm that brought about these rules then hush.
>>27740133>acting like a petulant child on the internet
>>27740141it actually brought about different rules, but only for when Decu called for a vote with those ruleson normal votes like this its best to just trust that Decu has everyones best interests at heart and not get buttflustered
>>27740141Except that the Shitstorm was about samefags and guess what, this one is about samefags, too.
>>27740161>it actually brought about different rules, but only for when Decu called for a vote with those rulesNo, the rules were put in place for all votes. There's nothing from Decu that implies what you say.
>>27740161Sage advice.And hopefully those best interests will be not sleeping with the idol because some people want to 'accidentally' grab her ass, tee hee.
>>27740108I find it terribly ironic that you say that we need to enforce these anti-ambiguity rules in this situation for the purpose of making this a tie vote.
>>27740190I mean, fuck, we're wearing the warmaster's cap right?If you want a handfull of idol booty, Chiaki could just go for it now.
>>27740071In character is what the votes decideAnd notice the big stream of no's came midway in after yes had a decent lead which sort of implies that more people samefagged no first
>>27740184You mean the Shadow Quest antisamefag voting rules can be used without explicit instruction from the QM? Color me surprised.
Sometimes I imagine Decu sat at his computer, a tear rolling down his cheek."I just want to run a quest thread and have fun, why do they always have to fight?"
>>27740171The shitstorm was because the vote was close and decu miscounted posts like"Yeah, as I voted earlier, I agree that bringing Kyubey into timestop is a good idea (I have already voted and this is not an actual vote but I'm still voicing agreement again for that choice of action)" as votes, and when someone checked the number of [x] votes it was noted that the vote of "don't take Kyubey into timestop" was actually the winner.This is why the rules are "blah blah blah" is not a vote, and "[x] do blah blah blah" within 20 minutes does definitely count.Decu can count votes after the 20 minutes if he wants to, but you only are guaranteed a vote if you vote before those 20 minutes.
>>27740184>There's nothing from Decu that implies what you say.Except for the fact that I was the one who wrote up the rules that were proposed and subsequently used in several contentious votes, the rules for all voting changed after that, but on the issue of samefagging and anti-samefagging there was a separate system for Decu to use when he wanted to.Now shut up, stop taking this so seriously and either calm down or go take a walk, because you're taking this too seriously
>>27740005What? Get tired after a long day and pass out? Give in to the whims of an Idol because it's easier to just say yes rather than tie her to the bed and listen to her bitch till the job is over? Isn't that perfectly in character for Chiaki?We now have more security on this one girl than we have do on Mami FFS. Murderface needs sleep.I trust decu either way.
>>27740212I'll tell you the answer.Idols.
>>27740205>In character is what the votes decidein a purely mechanics aspect yes, but thats not true at all to the character's & the stories meta at all
>>27740197Tie vote=middle ground. We say yes but don't actually go to sleep. Some people were voting for a middle ground in case you missed that.
>>27740212Really? I always imagined him cackling madly at our antics and shrieking "dance, my pretties, dance!"
>>27740234The other votes were for Enishi to get laid.
ITT: Samefagging, 'No, my result would have won if we counted votes my way' debate number thirty>>27740230Eh, the character evolves from the meta and ultimately whatever choices we make are up to decu to justify in Chiaki terms.
>>27740217>Except for the fact that I was the one who wrote up the rules that were proposedThat doesn't mean shit, nor can you prove it. There's nothing in any posts from Decu that show or imply what you said is true.How about you shut up, because you're wrong.
>>27740220>implying you can hear the principal bitch if you're unconcious in a chair>I trust decu either way.in Decu we trust.
>>27740230Except the meta has nothing to do with it when the character is driven by consensus of the threadDeculture gives two options which are equally in character just choosing left or right and you because you chose something decided it was more in character
>>27740262Masterful debate technique on display here courtesy of anon. Truly one for the history books.>No, you're wrong, shut up.Amazing.
>>27740257>Eh, the character evolves from the meta and ultimately whatever choices we make are up to decu to justify in Chiaki terms.and in this case, this is a decision Chiaki has made several times before.I can't see any reason she'd change her mind now.
>>27740234That's not even a compromise. That's letting the people who wanted in bed with Ruri have their way despite being outnumbered.
>>27740264Damn, now I want to change my vote to.[x] Say sure, then lock her in the bathroom and fall asleep on the bed after using a different shower to get clean.Murderface experience isn't complete without the other party leaving pissed, dead, or depressed. And she asked for the Murderface experience.
>>27740269IC is determined by PREVIOUS decisions, which set tone and theme for a characters future decisions, and with Chiaki's return to form one of the options was clearly not IC, also, I voted for Enishi to do it for us...
>>27740257Decu only provides votes that Chiaki would actually do in character, or so he tries to write. It's why we don't get an "[x] shoot Midori" option every time we see her.
>>27740288Anon clearly want to be the only one to have a say in Chiaki fate and everyone disagreeing with him is wrong>>27740298Pot calling the kettle black, both side samefagged because one did it harder doesn't make them right
>>27740310>[x] shoot MidoriYou monster.
>>27740305Oh god.Where were you at the start of the vote.
>>27740288So is this any better?>>27740217>I'm right, shut up
>>27740310I agree with this sentiment, because if there were 'correct' choices, why even make it interactive?
>>27740334There are no 'correct' choices, but there are certainly 'less wrong' choices.
Blessed Lady's tits, would you cunts all shut the fuck up and let the moon rabbit write for gods sake.
>>27740334Because Decu likes the taste of our tears whenever we do something like "GET FUCKED"?
>>27740330Not really, but I'm still amazed that someone actually used 'No, you're wrong, shut up'I always thought it was something that existed in strawman threads over on /v/As a sidenote I am neither party in that argument. I just couldn't resist commenting.
>>27740334To give the illusion of choice. Two different choices can have exactly the same outcome.But I don't assume decu is doing that... too much.
Alright, there's only one way to solve this:We'll have to make a MGNQ VN. That way everyone can play Murderface the way they think she should be and get the waifu and ending they want.
>>27740350>implying this petty bitching in any way impedes Deculture's ability to write
>>27740369>implying that our impotent rage doesn't fuel his dark literary magicks
>>27738518>two, three yearsTHAT'S NOT HOW IT WOOOOOOOOOOOOOORKS AAAAAAAAAAAA
>>27740334It's an inherent problem with interactive media.In this case, previous choices should have made this a no brainer, but unfortunately the other option was "touch fluffy tail".
>>27740369If you think that, then you didn't read the threads either side of the shitstorm that happened over "lolol pull QB into timestop to meet pinky"
>>27740368Unless they hit one of the countless possible Dead Ends. No VN without the possibility to get yourself killed.
>>27740350>implying decu even looks at these arguments while writing>>27740358That was a 'How do you react?' with a really stupid writein that got hued because people forgot about consequences.
>>27740366>but I'm still amazed that someone actually used 'No, you're wrong, shut up'Why not, when a party is demonstrably wrong and has no verifiable facts to back them up?It's not like "Shut up because you're too serious" is any better.
>>27740392That's why you save before every choice.
>>27740394And just for the record, I only joined up during the early 90th threads or so. Wasn't there for Siberia or all the other early parts.>>27740406This is an Ironman run, no take backs when we fuck up.

>>27740515...I can't do it. Sorry.
>>27740506Every choice we'd made up until then had worked out incredibly well. We got away with slapping Kharn. People were flushed with success. I agree it was stupid, but do you not understand people make rash choices when they're pumped up or do you have difficulty with empathy?
>>27740506>implying that losing to the final villian then recieving a bullshit power upgrade and saving the day with the power of love isn't exactly how the genre works
>>27740506I'm still disappointed that we got off essentially scot-free for that one. Felt like a cheap cop-out.
>>27740522Well fuck you then, I tried. I don't know how these fucking magical cats stop universal heat death
>>27740494You can still go back and read the earlier threads. Look up the wiki, it has all the threads listed in order.
>>27740533I was also there and also thought it was supremely retarded. Every choice we'd made worked out well because we were extremely thoughtful and deliberate about them. Even slapping Kharn was reading the mood.And then we stopped.
>>27740539We lost the magical girl who could summon FUCKING BEARS. How is that scot free?
>People sperging about "ENTROPY NO WORK DAT WAAYYYY!!!!!!!" >In a setting where mutant spacecats harvest emotions through harvesting emotions from young girls in order to stop entropy
>>27740536It's not how noir works. But I guess that's what happens with you mix magical girls and noir.
>>27740564I'm sorry, it's an instinct that I can't control.Clarke's third law is also relevant.
>>27740551I already have and am reading them again just to be sure I don't forget something during the next few discussions.
>>27740564But the heat death of the universe will not happen in three years.There is still heat.
>>27740564but canon clearly established that grief harvesting was an extremely long-term prospectto go from literally billions of years to just two or three requires a massive shift somewhere
>>27740528Uh, I think you mean too bad they can't both be bottom.
>>27740539>we got off essentially scot-free for that one.What?We lost our chance to keep Mirai, who can summon fucking Hyper-Bears, and would have taken a Contract renegotiation in a heartbeat, as well as any hope of keeping Malal around in a more permanent manner, and you consider that scot-free?
>>27740585Planet Incubator has a reeeeeeeeeealy long year.Problem solved.
>>27740583But you can't lichify a little girl and harvest her despair to stop it either.So there's that.
>>27740596They can. Watermelon end.
>>27740560Real consequences would disturb the status quo in some way. Killing a character that we had no real attachment to as players does nothing.
>>27740597We will never see the look on Kyoko's face when we tell her our new comrade can summon hyper-bears.
>>27740609Do you know what the heat death is?
Decu pls, we're getting stupid again.
>>27740618Y-you're gonna make me cry.We can never let her know how badly we have let her down.
>>27740618One of the big goals we went in with was 'save Mirai'. Rather than fuck us over completely because we made one stupid decision after a more or less clean, intelligent run, we instead fucked up one of our two main objectives and got one of Midori's best friends killed.No, it wasn't losing a major cast member. But it hurt her, and it still fucked over about half of our goal in there.
>>27740583According to the simple minded human physicists. Who are you going to believe? The cat that can harvest emotions as a fuel source, or some nerd looking at numbers all day.
>heat death of the universe occurs when all the heat's radiated out of the universe into whatever's outside of it, beyond our ability to get it back>heat exchange radiates off when energy is converted into useful forms>an entire universe is running bleeding heat from a googleplex of aliens running their cars with the AC on and the excess heat is venting into the void>you guys are wondering how we can run out of heat in 2, 3 yearsYour scale of matters is somewhat crippling, guys.

You allow yourself to briefly consider it - it's not everyday that the most powerful idol in the world is actually begging you for a favor. . . .You grumble out your reply, and it's with abject shock that Ruri looks up, the motion of it quick enough that one of her stupidly-long twintails whiplashed up to very nearly smack you in the face."Eh?! B-but, Chiaki-chaan...!" The green-haired super idol wails in despair. "I just wanted to--!"You're still sticking to what you said about this the last time, you tell her. Nothing is going to change your mind, and after what happened in the concert, nothing ever will....But just to shut her up about it already, you'll make a compromise. You'll sleep beside her, yes, but you'll be on the floor instead on the bed. There's probably a comforter somewhere in the suite you can unroll, or something."But that's not--" Ruri starts again, but you cut her off with a glare, one that tells her just how you've had enough of flighty idols and their horseshit. She falls silent momentarily, before pouting as she turns away. "...Okay. Fine. I don't like it much, but it'll do, I guess." You nod at this, before jerking your head towards the suite's bathroom. She should start getting ready for bed."Y-yes, Chiaki-sama~!" Ruri obediently bounces up to her feet, her pout quickly replaced with her trademark cheeky grin - and you hear the door to the bathroom slam shut as she disappears into it. A moment later, and you hear the sound of the shower being turned on, along with Ruri singing the song she'd performed with Iori, earlier.You let out a sigh here. Finally, some peace. [1/2]
>>27740620Yes.I'm pointing out that it's fucking retarded to go on about MUH SCIENCE in a setting with magic.It is irrelevant if "two or three years" is massively wrong within the context of our universe, because it is very obvious that this is NOT our universe.
>>27740652>heat death of the universe occurs when all the heat's radiated out of the universe into whatever's outside of it, beyond our ability to get it backBut that's wrong, you fucking retard.
>>27740635He is trying to sort out our last little spurt of retardation called voting
>>27740666"Hey, Murderface!" Sayaka's voice calls from behind the door, followed by her barging in right through. From the looks of it, she's also ready for bed, freshly showered and slipped back into a nightgown. You don't see Blueberry Cheesecake Brownie on her, but you do see a combat knife strapped to her bare ankle. "How are you holding up? Do you need any more healing, or something?"What? Is Sayaka actually concerned for you? Alright, who the fuck is the Callidus in front of you, and what did she do with your Equerry?"Huh? But I'm not--" Sayaka blinks, before frowning. "...Wow. Really, Murderface? I just want to make sure you don't flatline the night before Mission End, in case I missed anything. Fuck me, right?"...You're fine. You're just tired, you tell her. Tired of everything. You apologize after a few moments, and she grudgingly accepts it with a nod, before sitting beside you."You're going to get cleaned up, right? You've still got all that shit on you." She gestures to your bloody costume. You nod at this - you're just waitiing for the idol to finish bathing, and then you'll get your own shower."Ah, good. Thought you were gonna do the Girl A thing and sleep in it." Sayaka makes a face, before blinking. "Oh, before you fuck Ruri, get her to fill this out, first." She takes a manila envelope from somewhere behind her, and passes it to you. You blink before taking it. "It's a feedback response kind of thing. She has to grade you and stuff. Don't open it, she's the one supposed to."Ah. ...And no, you're not going to fuck your client, for the last time. You're not Kharn.[2/3]
>>27740677"I know. Just fucking with you." Sayaka grins, here, before leaning back on the sofa. "Don't misinterpret me, I do like that you're not following her footsteps? But I kind of miss it, you know. Sure, she had her crazy, but she was also pretty simple to get along with." A moment. "There was Malal, her Equerry, too. She was..." the Eversor frowns, here. "Well, she was a bit uptight? But she was very good. If Malal was on the job, you'd bet your ass it was as good as done." She laughs, here. "I wish I could be half as good, you know? Being the new Equerry and all."How do you respond?
>>27740690[x] "Uptight, huh? You sure you're not projecting here?"
>>27740690"You know that Malals real name is Madoka, right?"
>>27740677>What? Is Sayaka actually concerned for you? Alright, who the fuck is the Callidus in front of you, and what did she do with your Equerry?>>27740677>"It's a feedback response kind of thing. She has to grade you and stuff. Don't open it, she's the one supposed to."Paranoia building. Open the envelope.
>>27740690[x] "I picked you for a reason. Don't fuck up being Equerry Miki or whatever trying to be Equerry Malal."
>>27740677>"It's a feedback response kind of thing. She has to grade you and stuff. Don't open it, she's the one supposed to."You see what we've done?! By not fucking her we're going to get bad feedback!Yes it's a joke. Unbunch your panties.
>>27740690"Go to bed, Sayaka. You're scaring me.""And thanks."
>>27740669Ok, then. Magical girls are heat exchangers with a negative efficiency rating. There are a lot of heat exchangers performing heat exchange in all the little incubator homes that will make heat go equal amongst everything and because of this if the magical girls with their magical negative efficiency that makes heat differentials greater heat will be equalized amongst everything within three years.
>>27740702Oh jesus. I want to see Sayakas reaction to this so badly.
>>27740690[x] "Going by that description, you're already halfway there."
>>27740690[X] "You'll get there. You've definitely got the 'uptight' part down as is."
>>27740690[x] this >>27740702
>>27740690"I don't remember Malal half as well as I ought to.What else do you remember about her?"
>>27740690[x] Kharn was fucking nuts, so she needed a sane equerry. I'm someone who's supposed to be shooting people so I need someone that can stab for me. Or possibly bitch me out and remind me what an ass I am sometimes. Or possibly bitch me out while healing me because I got my dumb ass stabbed. [x]Probably the last one a lot, knowing my fucking luck.
>>27740690[x] "I could have convinced Kyouko to take the Aide position without taking you on. But I didn't, because I believe you can do the job. Just make sure you keep me and the Officio in line without letting the authority get to your head."
>>27740690"Being Equerry means responding to the shortcomings of the Warmaster, and the problems they cause. Different Warmaster, different set of problems. Don't get hung up on trying to be Malal. You're not Malal, and more importantly, I'm not Kharn. Just focus on cleaning up MY messes, and you'll do just fine as my Equerry."
>>27740690[X] I chose you to let me know when I'm about to fuck up. I'll grant you the same courtesy. Deal? Now get out before you stop me from killing Ruri
>>27740690[x] seconding >>27740727
>>27740690"I think so far we did very well for our first job as Warmaster and Equerry. Both of us will get better in time."
>>27740677[x] I found a photo of Malal under her mask, are you curious?
>>27740753Adding this[x] What else do you remember about Malal?to my vote here>>27740706
>>27740702HOLY JESUS FUCK NO
>>27740781Fuck that shit, we're sworn to secrecy.
>>27740690"If you do the best you can, and I know you will, you'll be even better."
>>27740690[x] "You're doing a fine job so far. Kyouko said she's done with her mission too. Looks like we'll be hitting that smash-n-grab sooner than expected. Make sure that we've got recon and escape all prepped before we start; Mami should be able to help."
>>27740781>>27740702These.Sayaka deserves to know.
>>27740807> Looks like we'll be hitting that smash-n-grab sooner than expected.Weren't we going to solo that?
>>27740781DOUBLE FUCKING SHIT NOretardspls goand stay go
>>27740809Yeah but right now? With Ruri about to barge back in?
>>27740690>I wish I could be half as good, you know?Give her a shit eating grin."Yeh, me too."Then ask if we can use her shower and make sure she doesn't get killed while we are in there. It will be more convenient this way, god knows how long she will be in there.
>>27740809Sayaka deserves to know, but is this really contextually appropriate at all?'I'm upset and comparing myself to Malal' 'You know what her real name was right?'
>>27740690>[X] "At least the previous Equerry was dependable, people are half expecting me to be just like Kharn... which I am not if I hadn't told you already."though we do appreciate a good butt.
>>27740809There's no benefit in it now for either of them.Malal had her own reasons for keeping the secret. I get the feeling that we owe her enough to keep silent.
>>27740823We should bring our full entourage, it can be a team-building exercise. Our equerry, our aide, and maybe our secretary.
>>27740840Yeah agreed, let's save it for some other time. Maybe another post-mission party or some appropriate bonding moment.
>>27740823With our Time Stop currently disabled, and since we want to test out either the chainaxes or the GDEagle which could end with the package we're supposed to secure damaged, I think it's more prudent if we have Sayaka come along to grab the target and escape with it while we make a mess of the facility and its defenders.
>>27740809Was Sayaka even friends with Madoka in this universe?
>>27740840Actually, going futher, it's really a dick move and somebody already brought that up.'In any case, your further squirreling about the package reveals what looks like a small white envelope, unsealed. Inside is what looks to be a small wallet-sized picture of a girl with pink hair and crimson eyes, wearing a magical girl costume that was very, VERY familiar. It was obviously a self-taken photo, seeing as the girl was holding a smartphone up with one gloved hand - the other holding a sideways V sign with her fingers over her right eye. A forced smile on her lips.You turn the photograph over, and you see something written at the bottom.>No one must know my secret.>Kaneda Madoka'
Diary password's four letters, right?We should try "Miki" next.See what Malal had to say about her.
>>27740809>>27740877So that's a 'Nay then.
>>27740852Actually, I'm thinking we send Sayaka with Midorin next mission, and see what Kyoko makes of Midori.We trust her with our life, but when we vouched for her with Kyubey, that's all that was at stake. As Warmaster it'd be good to get a little outside perspective.
>>27740874>Was Sayaka even friends with Madoka in this universe?Yes. Madoka was a biker delinquent in this timeline, and taught Sayaka how to break noses and fend for herself.
>>27740874Yeah, Madoka got her into metal and fightan.
>>27740690[X] heh, speaking of Malal you know she had pink hair? Found an old picture of her in that servo skull box I got, dressed up like one of those goth loli cosplayers and allI think you are closer to her than you realize, what you haven't realized is that the equerry covers up for the warmasters shortcomings, Kharn's were that she was great at fucking, fighting and not much else that's why Malal did so much
>>27740874very yes.See Sayaka's flashback.
>>27740874Yes. It was mentioned in the last flashback, but we don't know if murderface knows that, which is another reason to not bring it up because it's a bit random in character.
>>27740840Agreed, Sayaka deserves to know. Eventually. This is NOT the right time to be revealing the "terrible secret"
>>27740874Yes. But then Madoka just up and disappeared without telling her and got contracted.
>>27740906Why do you want to piss on what Malal wanted kept secret?
>>27740916Which is interesting since this universe shouldn't even HAVE a Madoka by rights.
>>27740897If there's something suitable for Midori and Sayaka when we go to the oilrig I'm for this.
>>27740874Malal was basically Sayaka's Kamina. Which is why people want to see her reaction so badly they'll tell her in an extremely inappropriate location.
>>27740927Because Sayaka will never tell, it will hint to her that it was Madoka and it reassures her that Malal was human and not some efficiency witch
>>27740690[x] Anything but >>27740702
Rolled 11>>27740950Get fucked.Malal gave those instructions for a reason.
>>27740883Its five, it unlocked from "KHARN", "WENDY" and "MALAL" from all I remember. Check the logs.
>>27740950>Because Sayaka will never tellThat's beside the point, since Malal didn't want Sayaka to know either.
>>27740690[x] "Did you know her well? Feels like you'd have gotten along quite nicely."
>>27740971This is also important. Malal could have told Sayaka herself any time. If she didn't then she had her reasons.
>>27740970AFOOL was one I believe.Did we ever try "akemi?"
>>27740971I reckon that Sayaka was the entire reason she kept that secret.Unless she was, like, the daughter of someone really important and people learning about her would fuck over the officio.
>>27740970did we try GIRLA?
>>27740970Don't forget "BUENO" and "REMOV" along with a few others I can't recall.
>>27740931This universe shouldn't have a Pinky/Faust, her being here is Homura's fault.
>>27740993I still can't believe BUENO worked.
If we didn't, we should try ORIKO given recent suspicions.
Somebody ought to go through and catalog all the keywords tried on the diary app and what entries got unlocked, put it all in a pastebin or something for future reference.
>>27740690[x] this >>27740727
I wonder if EIGHT and 8BALL would bring up stuff about that incubator and his officio?
>>27740993"BUENO" Was silly. How many entries are there left to unlock?
Did we ever try "IDOL" as a password?
>>27740991I thought the secret was she dressed up in her proper costume which I expect was actually her costume nowWe know the callidus suits aren't their contract costume, it is a thing Kyubey made with Malal and so because Malal became so know in her suit and as a hardass she never wanted anyone to know that she actually had the frilliest, pinkest, cutest outfit ever
>>27740950And Malal never told Sayaka, either. Why do you think that is?IC Malal's real name means not very much to Chiaki, and OOC you're shitting all over Malal's wishes.
>>27741036I'm black and can't read this what does it say?
>>27741035I can imagine it would come up with a single line"Fuck Idols" and maybe a little sketch of Girl A shooting herself in the head
>>27741026I'm doing that for the wiki, but I'm progressing slowly. Got 5 entries so far, I'm sure there are more. Will put a page up once I'm through.#1 AKEMI, #2 FAUST, #6 KHARN, #9 AFOOL, #10 BUENO
>>27741049Your mother was a good lay.
Has NECO been tried as a password yet?
>>27740998Pinky, Faust and Godoka should all be abstract concepts. The cost of this is that Madoka shouldn't have a physical presence at all in any universe.When the cycle was broken this universe got a Madoka back.
>>27741039I think being a delinquent would be enough reason for her to hide having the frilliest, pinkest, cutest outfit ever. It just isn't this Madoka's style.
>>27741049It says "learn you some proper reading nigger!"In fancy handwriting
How about PANTY, there's ought to be something there.
>>27741006>>27741032So that's:AFOOLMALALBUENOKHARNWENDYREMOV isn't legit, if I remember correctly. Best to catalog whatever choices we've already gone through.>>27741057No problem, I just really wanted to post that one. Pinky was already taken though.
>>27741062>>27741035Passwords are 5 letters.
>>27740993We tried REMOV, it didn't work. We'll probably find out a lot once Yuuka finishes repairing it, and we find out what was recorded on it.>>27741007Oriko may be the prophet, but she was definitely a normal human at the time that Malal was alive (well, corporeal). Unless the diary is constantly changing, she wouldn't be in it.It's probably going to be things that have to do with our past. GIRLA is a really good idea.
>>27741062You need 5 letters.
Did we do KYOKO?
>>27741088How about KYOKO
>>27741088>YuukaI think you misspelled Misaka.I agree with "GIRLA", might get us something on Chiaki's backstory. Apart from her "accidentally" three Eversor Squads.
>>27741082No harm done!
>>27741088What, you didn't think Oriko came off as suspicious in the Christmas flashback?
>>27741036Why is Hat-chan's handwriting so pretty?
>enter LOVE? as a password>unlocks message Baby don't hurt me, no more!
>>27741121Is really odd, but tablet handwriting is much nicer looking than real handwriting for me.Wonder if same for hat.
>>27741116No problem.>>27741121Why is he such a good drawfag then? :PMy handwriting is complete shit, Engineering does not help with that.
Did we already try KEBAB?
>>27740998It's weird that this universe has Witches. Godoka was supposed to transcend all timelines, removing the witches from all of them. Probably has something to do with why Pinky is so pissed at us.
>>27741082I don't think we've actually tried MALAL as a password.
We could try RAMEN, since Malal visited Midori's parent's restaurant.
>>27741099Not really. Kyoko's fun enough that no-one gives a damn about any secrets about her past. She's an open book friend. Did we try GRIEF? KNIFE? SALAD? WEPON?
>>27741106>I think you misspelled Misaka.No, Malal's instructions were explicit about that.Yuma, also known as Omegon, is repairing the servo-skull.
>>27741146Now you are just making the sillies, comrade.
>>27741171FAUST? I can't remember if we have or not.
>>27741170Good point anon.
>>27741185According to >>27741058, we did.
>>27741177I'm afraid I forgot about that one as well. Sorry.
>>27741031Similarly we could try THIRD.
>>27741171>WEPONUnlocked entry!John Freeman who was Gordon Freemans brother was one day in an office typing on a computer...
>>27741216More interested in FIRST
>>27741155Was supposed to... but I'm guessing it's something like Godoka being unable to affect previous failed timelines, or universes where she's already dead.Infact, I suspect she can't even really save the universe from her own witch. I suspect that what we got is actually a new stable time-loop resulting from the interaction of Madoka and Homura's wishes.Homura delivers her shield to Madoka on Walpurgisnacht, and Godoka uses it to borrow the power of her incarnation in the next universe, which is enough to stop the witch in the current universe.In the next universe, the cycle is repeated. again and again... until something breaks it.Homura in each universe acts as Madoka's physical avatar... which is why she's granted the power of Godoka's bow.
KYUBYJYUBYIYUBYRWYBYYOUBYNOOBYEWUBY...Ok, I'm done.
>>27741228we could also try MOON.
>>27741236>no FOOBY>no RUMBAStep it up.
>>27741259FIRSTThe First Officio does have a moon base.
>>27741236>NOOBYThere were actually 21 incubator brothers, but one of them was given a 'special' assignment more suited to his mental skills. He isn't sure how being locked in the basement and watching cartoons all day serves the cause, but he's too content to ask.
Maybe FAITH would get us something about the Blessed Lady cult.
>>27741300I wonder what YDECU would get us
Maybe RABIT or USAGI would get us some info about the 8ths rabbits.
>>27741347>"It's dark. You're likely to be eaten by a nightmare in goddess form."
Going out on a limb here, but would YUUKA be of any help?
>>27741374Whatever could you mean?
>>27741391>>27741403Brings up parts 1 and 2 of a list of everyone Kharn has fucked.
>>27741410Well that's useless, we already have the panty catalogue.
>>27741403>>27741391If we wanted lewds we would put in "MMXMM"
>>27741421Which I still think we should check for Ruri.
>>27741410That'd take the entire thread to post.
>>27741421the panty catalogue isn't an exhaustive list, just the ones that Kharn felt were worth having a trophy from.
>>27741427That one may work.
>>27741433It would require a flashback sequence complete with pantsu-on-head Kharn in the OP
I wonder if Kharn ever spread them all out on the floor and rolled around in them?
Do the codes also include characters other than letters? For example !@#$.
>>27741453Maybe in the early days of her collection, before she decided she had too many and started laminating them
>>27739453Being Kharn is suffering.
>>27741453"I gotta do it, Malal."
>>27741463Don't know. We should ask Decu at the end of the thread.
>>27741453The panties or the skulls?both?
>>27741431And for the loud mouthed Prophet's right hand.
>>27741477Most modern smartphones would have a keyboard complicated enough to let you do it.But this sounds like a custom app, so who knows.
>>27741487Oh yes! Lucius did sound suspiciously like a spurned lover.>>27741484Panties pulled over the heads of skulls.
>>27741484skulls FOR THE SKULL THRONE.
>>27741484She put panties on the heads of the skulls until she ran out of skulls, then created a uniform complete with mask out of the rest.KAMEN PANTSU.
>>27741490I'm sure we can enter them, but we could save us the effort of trying if we ask Decu if any of the passwords have those characters.
Oh man, I'm such a slowpoke I didn't even realize the first letters of Ruri's names makes kiru until I was busy trying to think of 5-letter words for the phone now.
>You are now imagining a massive pile of skulls being held together by panties like some kind of lewder, skullier Gravelord Nito
>>27741514I am not sure if I follow.
Considering that MGs can regenerate lost heads as long as they have an intact gem, how many of those panties were pulled over the skulls of their owners?
>>27741539'Kill', not that I really think that was intentional from Decu, but still something I should have caught on to with all the paranoia about her earlier in the mission.
>>27741551I was just wondering that myself. And in how many cases were the skulls acquired first?
>>27741563I thought raping the prisoners were against the Magical Girl Geneva!
>>27741571Implying Kharn with the hat isn't just that charismatic.
>>27741563Kharn made a point of only sleeping with willing partners. Removing their head kind of contradicts that.
>>27741586Well I assume she let it grow back first.
>>27741526this may very well be the best thing I've ever imagined
>>27741586The Hat makes even 'willing' a dubious measure of consent.
>>27741526Today on Valnikov Kharn Living, we show you how to liven up the office with skull and panty crafts. Replacing broken teeth on a chainaxe. And 3 easy steps to keep your torture prisoners alive long enough to extract vital information.
>>27741563I never knew Kharn was a preying mantis.
>>27741586Well, they would be willing AT THE TIME. Whether she had killed them before or after sleeping with them was a totally separate deal.
>>27741624Huh, forgot about the hat....What should we even do with that thing? Put it on Ruri?
>>27741667This guy gets it.
>>27741648>bugfuck.jpgYou, uhyou have a lot of images tagged bugfuck?
>>27741674I've got none. Chrome and most browsers can leech images directly off websites; right click on an image you want to post on 4chan, click "copy image url" or "open in new tab", make sure you've got the image url in copied, click "choose file", paste the link, hit "open", and submit with captcha.The image will come up without you ever having to keep a copy (except on your temporary internet files).
>>27741671Yes that is a great ideaWe haven't experimented with it on normal people enough yet
>>27741671We replace the emblem and hope our problems end there.
>>27741699You think it's a good idea to give the most popular idol in the world the hat with + infinity CHA?
>>27741697Oh hey! That's a nice trick, thanks.
>>27741667I'm now thinking of that conversation from Clerks II."You never go oral to beheading.""It's never my idea, these young Magical Girls get so horned up that they tell me to cut their heads off.""You never go oral to beheading Kharn!""Never? You've never beheaded someone in the heat of the moment?""Never.""You're so repressed."
>>27741743I can see this conversation happening so easily.
>>27740706 >>27740727 >>27740751 >>27740753You slap the envelope against your free hand a couple of times. You don't really remember Malal as well as you should. What does Sayaka remember of the last Equerry, anyway? Besides being uptight and shit."Huh. Oh, yeah, you don't, right?" Sayaka blinks at you. "Even though you three were pretty much inseperable half of the time. That kind of sucks, but...hmm." The blue-haired Eversor thinks for a moment here, her brow furrowing. Looking as if she's taking this very, very seriously."She's just...ah, well, I'll go right out and say it. She reminds me of a friend I had back then, years ago, back when I was still studying." She looks at you. "You know that kind of friend where even if everybody else seems like they're out to get you, that friend'll be there by your side, no matter what? The kind that won't stab you in the back, no matter how badly you fuck up?"That sounds like some kind of friend."I had a friend like that once," Sayaka says, looking down on her hands clasped on her lap. "I won't bore you with my life story, Murderface, but Malal reminded me of her. ...Not that we were close and stuff, but it was like, she was that kind of friend for Kharn." She pauses here for a moment, looking at you. "I guess she was that person for you, too. I was...yeah, I was kind of jealous of you about that back then."The Eversor looks back down, deep in thought. "She just paid a lot of attention to shit. Doesn't miss a single detail, whether it's organizing an Officio-wide celebration or a synchronized op involving ten squads. Rumor was it she wasn't really a Magical Girl under the Culexus suit, but a machine."She shakes her head. "I don't know if I'll ever get to match up to that, Murderface. I fucking hope you picked the right choice."[1/2]
>>27741743Man, why wasn't Kharn's emblem the Skull and Pantsu?
>>27741796You smirk at this, before shaking your own head. She shouldn't even think about that kind of stuff. You didn't pick her to be your Malal - you picked her to be your Sayaka. Someone who's not afraid to tell you what she thinks about things, especially about the potentially stupid shit you're about to do. Thinking about trying to live up to Malal, well - there's really no faster way to fuck herself up, really, and you're not ready to see Kyoko go through that kind of grief.Besides, she's already catching up to Malal, if it's being a tightwad that's in question. She's probably halfway there already.You get a punch in your arm for that, but also a rather embarrassed grin from the Eversor. "...Thanks, Murderface. I kind of needed that."[+ 200 Sayaka Points! ]You shake your head at this. You didn't get to thank her enough for healing you, so this evens it out, at least."Yeah, I guess." It's here that she yawns. "Right, I'll go and catch some sleep. Enishi and Squad Hiryu's taking up guard duty again, so we can probably take it easy for now. I'll make sure to wake you up in case anything happens, though."Right....By the way, her friend. Did she have a name, or what?"I didn't get her first name, she disappeared before I could even bring it up. Last name's Kaneda, though." It's here that Sayaka levers herself off the couch. "Why? You know anyone by that name?"...No, you shake your head. Not particularly. It doesn't ring a bell."Figures." Sayaka lets out a sigh. "I don't know where she is. Maybe she's overseas, maybe she's dead. I wish I could at least thank her for everything she's done for me." She sniffs here, a bit, before laughing. "Christ, listen to me. I never thought I'd tell you about that, of all people. Still, it...feels nice to talk about it." The Eversor looks at you, before nodding. "Thanks, Murderface."Don't mention it, you tell her. And your name's Chiaki.[2/3]
>>27741813I know Malal must have her reasons, but god damn it.
>>27741813"Yeah, yeah. G'night." She leaves the room, closing the door behind her - just in time for Ruri to loudly proclaim that she's done, bursting out of the bathroom in an explosion of steam, towel cloth and blow-dried green hair long enough to touch the floor. You take your own towel - and the pajamas you'd used last night - and make for the bathroom without another word. Mulling everything you've learned, here....So Sayaka knew Malal before she became a Culexus? That's...well. The painful coincidence makes you cringe as you shower, meticulously scrubbing the dried blood and dirt off your body. If Sayaka finds out that she'd just spent her entire career serving beside her best friend and not knowing it, and also finding out that her best friend died without her being able to mourn her properly...even you can tell that'd wouldn't exactly be a good time. Malal - or Kaneda - must have known, and decided to keep quiet about it, instead.You can't even fathom what kind of self-control that took, to resist the temptation, not to mention the guilt, of keeping your identity secret from everyone, including your best friend. It must have torn the Culexus apart.You'll just have to make sure her secret's safe, then. Just like the photograph swore.You finish your shower a handful of minutes later. You even used the hairdryer like Mami had taught you. You forgo setting your ponytail, letting your hair hang down your back for now, since you'll be sleeping how normal people sleep for the night.Stepping out of the bathroom, you come upon the scene of Ruri straining to get your comforter ready. By that you mean, the idol trying her level best to pull the rolled-up futon out of the closet. You shake your head and help her do the rest.[3/4]
>>27741831>I know Malal must have her reasons, but god damn it.Telling her now would just fuck her shit up. All she'd be able to do is wonder why Malal didn't tell her, and there's no-one left to answer.Not telling her now is a kindness, of a sort.
>>27741813>[+200 Sayaka points]I forgot to take off my hat and I woke up covered in bitches.
>>27741865Yes I know. I'm lamenting the whole state of affairs for both of them.
>>27741875Not just any bitches, but the biggest bitch of all.
>>27741859"Haah! Thank you, Chiaki-chan! That comforter was a monster!" Ruri lets ou an exhausted sigh, dropping back down on her bed. You shrug at this, fluffing up the pillow that came with the comforter with both hands, before settling into your temporary sleeping arrangements for the night. Taking off your glasses and placing them on the carpet beside your comforter, on top of the Warmaster Cap. The Desert Eagle, of course, is in its holster underneath your pillow, and the bangles clasped around both your wrists, still."You'll be okay like that, Chiaki-chan?" Ruri calls from the bed. "Isn't the floor kind of hard?"It's fine, you tell her. In fact, you're used to sleeping while sitting down more. Lying down's a bit of a luxury for you. You'll manage, however."...Hee. That's kind of cool." You hear the idol murmur. Some rustling of bedclothes, and it's here that you see Ruri lean over the lip of her bed to peek at you. "Hey, Chiaki-chan?"What? You squint at her, frowning. You were trying to get comfortable already, for fuck's sake. Does she need anything or what?"Oh, no. No, nothing in particular." Ruri smiles, here. "Just, uh..." The superidol seems to hesitate, here. "Do you think having a relationship with a Magical Girl can really work out?"...Does it look like you're the goddamn expert at that kind of shit? Really?"Honestly? From what I keep reading about? Yes! I mean, Green Green's just about admitted that you're the one she based Murder Mayumi on, plus there's all the stories I keep hearing..."Just because it's on print doesn't mean it's true, you remind her."Well, just humor me! Just think that you're my big sister or something like that. What do you think? Or should I just, you know, hypothetically, if I was in the one in the relationship - should I just cut it off and go for a rich, normal guy instead?"How do you respond?
Did we ever try BITCH for that matter?
>>27741902"Cut it off and go for anything else, a dog would be a better partner than a magical girl."
>>27741902[x]Go for rich normal guy. Please.Please.Pretty please.Don't do this.
>>27741902"Loving a Magical Girl can only end in tears. I suggest that you do that."Simple and to the point.
>>27741902[x] Ask her to come clean. Who, exactly, is this magical girl that she "hypothetically" "might" be in a relationship with?
>>27741902"Unless you're with one of the clerk types, don't bother with a magical girl. Theres a damned good reason why you never see any older than 25. They're either dead, suffering from PTSD so bad they have to be hospitalized, or Kharn. And even she ended up settling for a normal guy. Gonna have kids, even."
>>27741935>>27741902[X] "Loving a Magical Girl can only end in tears. I suggest that you do that."
>>27741902Knock her out and get back to guarding.We're a guard not a therapist.
>>27741902[x] "Magical girls die more often than not. Certainly more likely than civilians. And normal people can't possibly fully understand what magical girls go through. So no, it's not going to work out."
>>27741902Seconding this>>27741941This mission is just about over, if we don't learn her backstory now we might not ever!
>>27741902[x] "Maybe there can be exceptions, but on the whole, not really. Too many differences, too much danger on the magical side of not coming home one night."Though, contract killer/soldier+Magical Girl might work, being in similar lines of work and experiencing similar pressures and stress.
>>27741902[x]It's a terrible idea and I don't even have to think twice about telling you about it.
>>27741902"I've seen it work. I still wouldn't recommend it."
>>27741902[x] "Whether you're talking about yourself or Iori, I'd say 'go for the rich guy.' Nothing good can come from a relationship with a magical girl."
>>27741902"As much as I'd like to talk about it, I can't really say you because of contractual obligations. Yes, Magical Girls have those two, and they're on a whole 'nother level of 'serious business'".
>>27741902[x] "Depends on the situation. If you're already invested in them, like say you're certain you actually love them, relationship or not, or it's someone you're already close friends with, then why not. It's gonna hurt just as bad when they eventually get sliced and diced either way, and with your status the risk of kidnapping or killing is already high enough that the difference would be minor, so might as well go for it. If you don't have any kind of strong connection like that, though, you're better off searching other places.These are some ridiculously unsubtle hypotheticals by the way. My answer would probably be better with the full story."
>>27741902[X] think on it a moment and then tell her: "it depends on the person" and let her make of that what she will. Honest advice and I don't think Chiaki is capable of expressing anything more complex than that without tripping over herself
>>27741743Kharn and Malal
>>27741975because you can't tell me that Kyubey lets his contractees talk about what a Magical Girl contract actually entails to people outside the Officio.
>>27741989I think she'd have enough self-loathing to say that it wouldn't work out, ever. That's just me though.
>>27741958>And normal people can't possibly fully understand what magical girls go throughJust because they're not magical, don't discount people who risk their lives as a matter of course for their profession or kill as a job. Sure, they don't have to worry about Witching out, but otherwise they're in the same boat as Magical Girls.
>>27741902[x] "Imagine dating a soldier thats constantly overseas, rarely ever coming home. Its a thousand times worse. Don't bother."
>>27742011Those people aren't exactly normal.
>>27742000"Malal?""Yeah, Kirika?""Sometimes it's okay to got oral to beheading."
>>27742011Actually, Idols really do have quite a lot in common with Magical Girls.The difference is simply the nature of the contracts. Theoretically you can get out of being an Idol. Once you're in an incubators clutches, your fate is sealed and you're AAA fucked.
>>27741902[X] "Being in a relation ship with a magical girl, as an 'normal' girl, is dangerous, depending on the person. our officio has girls who have somewhat normal office jobs but then there are individuals like Sayaka and me, who take on various missions, some of which they might not return from."
>>27741902[x] "Depends. Only relationship I've seen work was when the Magical Girl was already retired. Otherwise, too good a chance that she'll wind up dead, and there won't be enough of a body left to fill an urn. As well as coming home covered in blood and not wanting to talk about it."
>>27742005Maybe so, but Ruri has stopped going out of her way to be an annoying twit, so I thought a begrudgingly honest and optimistic answer might be better than shooting her down entirely. Seems that just me though
>>27742026But that's like saying that a person shouldn't get romantically involved with a soldier, policeman, or fireman (the fireman saves lives rather than ending them, but risking their life all the time still applies).
>>27741902[x]A rich, normal guy. Or girl. You can date whoever you want, just make sure they're not magical. It's nothing but trouble.
>>27742044What was it Homura said:"It's best to think of a magical girl as someone who's already dead", or something to that effect?
>>27742096Well, in the context of civilian-meguca relationships. Chiaki might as well draw from personal experience.Green Green is a different matter, entirely.>>27742112Yes. Something like that. All Meguca live on borrowed time, even Kharn.
>>27741902I'm not so sure. I mean, we're not human anymore. Not really. We're all already dead. It's just a matter of time before we witch out or get hit so hard we don't come back anymore.
>>27741902If our life expectancy wasn't in the single digits I would say yes. But that isn't the case. Those of us who manage to stay alive as long as we have, aren't the same kind of "person" that would fit into a normal healthy relationship. Not playing the wounded bird that needs healing card here, normal people cannot handle the shit a MG drags in. If that MG was any kind of decent, she wouldn't want to put it on anyone either.
>>27741902[X] It's a terrible truth but the only people who should be around magical girls are other magical girlsWe don't live like everyone else, we don't even get to retire like everyone else. Your life might be dangerous because of everyone wanting you but for us our lives are dangerous because everyone wants us dead.If you aren't fighting some unknowable monster bent on killing innocent people you are fighting zealots or even just people who had the bad luck of drawing the same job as you but on the opposite side.And this all comes back, to us a relationship is something that an enemy can exploit. So if you drag someone into this world then you are signing their death warrant, no matter how much you care, how much you vow to protect them it is eventually going to get them somehowIt hurts, but finding a nice rich guy and settling down comfortably beats the hell out of living a short life with a magical girl, no matter how much you love them and they you there is a cost for it, and it is too high for anyone who truly cares about another to paySo yeah, probably a good idea finding a rich guy, you might even be able to buy yourself an island to live on or something
>>27741902[x]"Hypothetically, would you tell me who you're in a relationship with?" Charisma.
It really depends on the girl. Lets be honest, the vast majority of magical girls are so broken that they wouldn't be stable love interests even if they were normal. Someone like Mami? Maybe. Someone like us? Save yourself the trouble, just marry an alcoholic emotional wreck.
>>27742190We need a NECO and filthy assistant bannerOr a Tomoko banner that is all dinged and up possibly has her sitting in the box
>BLESSED KITTY PROTECTS! Maybe i should change my tagline...? = 3 =Heh. Stupid cat.
It's a horrible, horrible life, and you'd have to be a terrible person to inflict it on someone else.But in a crapsack work like this one, there's always some poor schmuck who'll take the contract for whatever reason.But there's no Wish worth the price.
>>27742274I want to finish the PMMM cast and Wendy. Any other banners I manage to make after that are a bonus
>>27742417I like the star around it tho
>>27742438Just a repost. I didn't make that, but I like his version the most so I posted it.
>>27742466I can definitely pitch my vote for that.
>>27740264>NECO @MGsAreReal 50m>A whole bunch of the crowd was talking about it all through the rest of the concert. something about the blessed lady and shield meidosWe PANIC now?
>>27742657No. We were told that there were a lot of Magical Girls at the concert.
>>27742657It has already been established that many magic girls believe in the blessed lady. It doesn't mean they're all best buddies with Pinky.
>>27742657>>27742671Lucius called us the Blessed lady's shield maiden, I'm sure we'll hear about it from other magical girls sooner or later.
>>27742676I'm fairly certain that the Blessed Lady, at least in popular consciousness, is actually regular, non-corrupted Godoka and not the Pinky we're more familiar with.
>>27742657calm yourself, look at attached pic
>>27742699Yes, that's exactly why there's no need to panic.
>>27742694You're doing the Blessed Ladys work, anon.
>>27742671A itsybitsytinywiny bit of panic then, at least?
>>27742403>>27742417What am I looking at?
>>27742701That picture does nothing but add to the terror.
>>27742722idea for replacement of skull on The Hata chiaki symbolblue rose from the dousinji, broken because girl a/murderface, star because cool
>>27742746am i helping?
>>27742722People were talking about replacing Kharn's skull emblem on the Warmaster's cap with something a bit more Chiaki-centric.Personally, I'd be slightly more in favour of keeping the emblem and getting some noir headgear, but it's difficult to say the word "fedora" without cringing internally.Fucking neckbeards ruining stylistic icons forever.
>>27742746This feels too SPESHUL SNOWFLAKE MARYSUE coming on.
>>27742762Hey, we're trying to drive home the "Chiaki != Kharn 2.0" thing.>>27742757+4 Str Homura. Do not want. D8
>>27741933 >>27741934 >>27741935 >>27741941Big Sister? You don't even have a real sister, for fuck's sake. How can you even pretend to be one, when you don't know what it actually is to be one in the first place?...Well, there's Misaka, sure, but...You grumble something underneath your breath, before you pull up the comforter's bedcovers up to your neck. Fine, you'll playing along. But first - who is it, anyway, that Ruri is so 'hypothetically' attached to? Maybe you know who it is."...Promise you won't tell anyone?" Comes the super idol's voice from the bed.You snort at th is. Fine, if she's not comfortable sharing the name, then a brief description will do."A hero, Chiaki-chan." Ruri breathes this out into the airconditioned cold of the room. "She's...someone kind and strong and brave. She never thinks about herself or her safety - she just does the kind of thing you'd expect Superman to be doing, if he was actually real."...What, like saving kids from burning orphanages and all that?"Sort of." Ruri giggles here. "She just...does it. The rescuing thing, the saving thing. All the superhero stuff. And I don't think she's got an Officio like you, or all the other Magical Girls I've encountered. She always works alone, and she never takes any reward money or anything like that."Sounds...well, remarkable. And a bit stupid, really."Is it, really?" The idol's tone of voice is pensive, here. Quiet. "Isn't she doing what Magical Girls are actually supposed to be doing, Chiaki-chan? Helping people, rescuing people? Protecting everyone's hopes and dreams?"Only in anime and manga, you tell her. That shit doesn't fly in real life. It's never as simple at that."...And here I thought you'd actually think she was cool, too." Ruri sniffs, here. "You disappoint me, Chiaki-chan."[1/2]
>>27742740>>27742757>Buffed HomuraThis is sexy as fuck.
Rolled 14>>27742694I really like this picture
If anything, we should stop the whole emblem argument by getting rid of the fucking hat, full-stop.
>>27742760Fedora wouldn't suit Chiaki anywayBut yes fucking cunts ruining something that was once a sign of class and being awesome like Indiana Jones or old school mafioso by being pieces of shit who shouldn't see the light of day let alone the Internet
>>27742748Oh jeez, people at work are wondering whether I'm laughing or crying.
>>27742801>browsing 4chan at workshiggy diggy
>>27742786>"Sort of." Ruri giggles here. "She just...does it. The rescuing thing, the saving thing. All the superhero stuff. And I don't think she's got an Officio like you, or all the other Magical Girls I've encountered. She always works alone, and she never takes any reward money or anything like that."Sounds like someone we know
>>27742786Well, you're going to disappoint her further, then. Because if she's asking you if it could work out, a relationship like that, with her and that superhero wannabe? Your answer is simple - it's not. One way or another, one of them is going to get hurt, and the other left alive will have to live with it the rest of their life. Nothing is worth that kind of suffering - she should just look for that normal guy with the deep pockets. At the very least, she'd be able to get a personal island out of the bargain."...Hmph. I also thought Chiaki-chan was going to say something different. I guess that's also disappointing." The idol sighs. "I'll...I guess I'll think about it. I'm probably not going to change my mind, though!" It's here that she leans over to look at you again. "And not a word about this to the media, okay, Chiaki-chan?"Right. Fine. Now can you sleep, at least?"Of course! Goodnight, Chiaki-neechan~!"She ducks back out of view, and you glare at the spot where she'd only been a few moments ago. Shaking your head, you close your eyes and try to get back to sleep.You open your eyes a moment later, and it's here that you remember to toss the manila envelope over the bed."Eh? What's this?" Ruri asks, confused.Feedback response, you tell her. Something about her having to grade your performance throughout the mission."Really...? Cool! I'll fill it up tomorrow and give it to you just before we leave, is that okay?"Sure. That'll be fine, you guess."Perfect! Now shutting down, running Sleep Subroutine 2.0!"....What?"Hahaha! Just kidding! Goodnight again, Chiaki-neechan!"...Fucking idols. Seriously.You close your eyes just as the lights are turned off - and you immediately fall asleep, dreaming about fallen angels with green hair the color of the devil's blood....At least you're getting decent sleep for once.
>>27742815It's my break and I'm on my phone, I can do what I want/
>>27742760We could just pull an Esdese with the hat trinket. A rose sounds like Malshina from Akibaranger.
It's Wendy isn't it? Her secret girlfriend is Wendy and that's why she was at the concert and that's how she knows so much about us and wanted to meet in person.
>>27742832God damn it Ruri.
>>27742858Actually I was thinking of Yuu
>>27742832>Sleep SubroutineSet off the EMP and go to Defcon 1.
>>27742832>running Sleep Subroutine 2.0decu stop fucking with usdecu pls
>>27742866How can she be currently dating our bracelets?
And with that, the Kirishima Ruri idol job is formally ended!Thanks for everyone who participated! We begin a new arc next thread, set tentatively for tomorrow night! Feedback is always good, and questions answered before I go to sleep!
>>27742832>Hahaha!Ruri is a Decu bot.
I say rip out the Skull emblem, put it in a box, wear the hat blank only when and when you have to make a show of office or something.
>>27742884Is it a flashback arc? Sallaka Quest 2: Electric Boogaloo?
>>27742832Hahaha, I am gonna miss having her fuck around Chiaki like thatNice to see the robot joke mentioned finally
>>27742832> dreaming about fallen angels with green hair the color of the devil's bloodThat. Is not good.>>27742884Is the prospect of having Midori take Vindicare and Eversor training on the table?Also, when are we going to see Misaka again? We need some Bolt Pistols!
>>27742786>>27742832Its this world`s Akemi Homura. This is also why Ruri was so interested in Chiaki and wanted her personally to be her bodyguard, because they look similiar and all.
>>27742884QB is listed as having an S-Rank Ethics. What are the other Incubators ranked at?
>>27742901This isn't the first time it's been hinted that she's a robot. I personally still think she is.
>>27742884God DAMN that arc. No more Idol missions, please.Still was good all around. Are we taking our well-deserved break next or another flash back? My write up should be done by then!
>>27742884Is Wendy Ruri's Girlfriend?hahaha!Does the diary passwords only use letters or are there other keys?
>>27742877I'm not saying it IS Yuu. It just sounds like her Modus Operandi.
>>27742914I think they are a nice change of pace every now and thenThis one wasn't as painful as the Iori campaign anywayAnd now to speculate as to just who is this mysterious meguca going around righting wrongs and being a superhero so we can beat the golden weapons out of them
>>27742884thanks for running!why did you decide to go with Protoculture this time?http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived, see you all next time.
>>27742884Hooray! No more idols ever again.
>>27742884Are we ever going to get a Kharn as Kamen Pantsu flashback?
>>27742921Yuu is the only magical girl we've met so far without an Officio, which suggests that it may be the same Incubator. There can't be too many of them doing the rounds like that.
