Five years ago, you were still a Magical Girl.And you were on the run, then. On a motorcycle so haphazardly borrowed you might as well have stolen it, with an unreliable nerd riding bitch behind you. Said nerd holding your main objective tight in his arms - another magical girl, currently comatose from you shutting her Soul Gem down as well as having a cocktail of tranquilizers shot directly into her neck. Excessive, sure, but with what her captors did to her, you don't quite trust her to be able to tell friend from foe just yet. Maybe she'll be ablet to again, after you rip out the berserker implants stabbed into the back of her skull - or after you put what little left of her still remained. And there's little left as it is - you knew after you personally pulled the plug on her. Nothing else but the barest scraps. Strauss left her broken, left her used, little more than a killing machine with strings around her limbs.
>>28467491Listen to yourself. Put her back together? Hah. Not like you to be that fucking optimistic. Who are you kidding? Even if by some miracle you manage to do that...well. It's like trying to put together a vase with only a few intact pieces left, and the rest ground to powder. She probably wouldn't even be the same person after. Wholly unrecognizable from her previous self....No, That'll be enough. Yeah, it'll be alright. So long as she's functional. So long as she's still in the game as your one ace. The one up your sleeve, along with all the others. Some already in play, others you've yet to palm into your hand.Heh. There was once a time when you felt uncomfortable thinking about people that way, wasn't there?Yeah, well. Back then you weren't even in the game. You were another just another card in the pile, until you realized that you were in fact a player yourself. Not only that, but you're also the one player who has to cheat to win.Because all the other players are cheating fuckheads themselves.And you're playing for all the fucking marbles. All the marbles there are, was, and ever will be.[1/2]
>>28467505In any case. You're now blasting through Red Line Highway. You left Casino Town back there in a hurry, with Nicole gleefully giving Enyo her long-promised duel and Wendy Cooldown staying back to give you a head start. And it seems to be working - a look back reveals that your tail is relatively clear, with the gangers you pass on the road seemingly unconcerned with a party of three riding upon a white beast of a motorcycle, blindingly obvious that they're running from something. But that's not going to stay that way for long - not only did Strauss take your stealing her most prized experiment personally by sending Varrigan City after you, but she did it by putting a bounty on your head. And if there's anything the Varrigan City citizen likes, it's money being made from killing someone.Well, whatever. You'll deal with it when it comes. Right now you're just pushing Schpeltiger as far as it could go, down the eight-line Red Line Highway - making a direct line for the docks that lay at the very end of it. And where salvation came in the form of an Officio battleship named from a really ugly and stinky flower from somewhere. You don't remember.It's here that your codec starts to beep for attention again. You growl here and make to drop the call - you need to drive here, for fuck's sake - but for some reason the connection establishes itself by its own, as if you've allowed it yourself."Ah, vonderful. Und here I vas beginnink to think that you had ze same lack of manners as little Ekaterina did." A female voice, lilting yet tightly controlled, cackles into your ears. The accent coloring its words bordering on the impenetrable, but allowed you to comprehend what she said - and what she said tinted your vision crimson. Making your gloved hands tighten on the Schpeltiger's handlebars."Emma Strauss?" You spit into your vox speakers.[2/3]
>>28467510"Ze one und only." You could hear the toothy grin in her voice. "Und may I say, zat was masterful, stealing not only my experiment but also my assistant. You vill unfortunately find him utterly useless in experiments, sough. Vorse still as a hostage - I do not care vhat happens to him. Unless, of course, you are planning on keeping him as a pet?" She cackles here, a strange kind of clicking laugh that sounds as if each exhalation seems to catch in her throat every time. "Sen, maybe for just that, he could be of use..."You grit your teeth at this. No. Don't rise to it, god dammit. You're Malal now. Kaneda can get angry at that kind of thing, but not you."Ah, ze silent treatment? Very amusink, but I did call just for zat. No, I am here to negotiate."Negotiate?"Yes, of course. Negotiate." There's anger there, in her voice, but held back carefully behind a wall of calm, collected insanity. "Turn your little bike around und give me back my experiment, and I vill call off Varrigan City. Refuse, und I vill make sure SHE eats you after ze rest of ze city passes you around like a masturbatory aid."How do you react?
>>28467510>but for some reason the connection establishes itself by its ownfucking HAX!so help me we are going over every inch of this suit with a fine tooth comb if we get out of here.
>>28467534[x] "You will beg for death, Strauss, and be denied."Cut the call.
>>28467534>How do you react?Would this be an appropriate time for a "Fuck You"?
>>28467534"Get Fucked."now THIS.This time it is appropriate.
>>28467534[X] "Answer is 'no'"
>>28467561maybe this time we should try for the hug.
>>28467534An intriguing proposal, ma'am. May I present a rebuttal? Get fucked.
>>28467534[x] "Hey, Miss Strauss, can you do me a favor? Put on some good chase music, and stay on the line. I'd do it myself, but I know for a fact that this thing doesn't have anything good loaded on it."
>>28467534[x] Hang up on her without saying one damn word.
>>28467574It answered itself. We can't count on being able to hang up.Electronic warfare is probably in play.
Threadly reminder that Decu is Urobuchi mark II and that the updated Ebook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDblink to the Fanart gallery: http://wiki.magicalgirlnoir.com/index.php/Fanart
>>28467582The fanart gallery is like a week behind on updates because of how busy I have been. I'll definitely be updating it later today though!
>>28467534[X] Don't give her the satisfaction of a reply, just keep going fast and counter any electronic shit she might try to pull.
[x]Ok, fine. Call off your goons, I'm turning around.[x] do not actually turn around
>>28467534[x] "There is nothing you can offer to change my mind."
>>28467534"Go fuck yourself with a cactus."
>>28467534"You seriously think this 'negotiation' spiel will work? I had you figured for a villanous mastermind, not a saturday morning cartoon baddie.""So now that we've all had our fun, what are you REALLY calling me for?"
>>28467596Actually, this.[X] Hack back. If she's in our system, there's a connection. If there's a connection, there's a systemic vulnerability to exploit.And the Schpelltiger doesn't actively need us to drive it.
>>28467505>Who are you kidding? Even if by some miracle you manage to do that...well. It's like trying to put together a vase with only a few intact pieces left, and the rest ground to powder.

I have been lurking on MGNQ for a long time and have always wanted to draw for MGNQ, so I did just that. Here's a Marar on Schpeltiger for the most exciting time of the day that has finally come!
>>28467534"I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request."
>>28467618Keep her talking to maintain the connection and>>28467621Hack the shit out of her
>>28467635You're pretty good.
>NECO @MGsAreReal 1m>Whew. i feel better after a coffe break nya~ now, let's see...there was that skinny nerd guy, wasn't there...?>I don't really know much about him, except that this was probably just like one of his japanese animes. especially the experimentorture nya
We missed a great chance to lie out the ass here."We're turning around. No, really. Right after I hear you broadcast a thousand dollar fine for shooting at us. We've already turned around, what are you- wait, you're still focused on the decoy motorbike? Let them go or I'll not come to you. Me? Lying? If you don't care to trust me, why should I trust you? Goodbye, I'm at my battleship now."
>>28467739That sounds exactly like the kind of thing Malal would do too.I'm disappointed in myself
>>28467739Weeell, I doubt she has much of a reason to trust Malal at this point anyway, though it would have been amusing to see
>Your negotiations are dildos.
>NECO @MGsAreReal 6m>http://pastebin.com/YuKBNjxJ the woman behind it all, a supervillain you'd usually see on a tokusatsu show>She made Kharn grow huuuge, and then they had to jump the motorcycle onto a robot to fight her, and... ah, was that right...?And then something about chain diners. Stupid cat.
>>28467761Oh, the running battle would be exactly the same. We'd just be obnoxiously lying to her in the meantime is all.Being an asshole is all part of Malal's rougish charm.
>>28467739>>28467757>>28467775Malal is MAXIMUM MURDERBONER right now. The time for fun and games is not now.In fact, fun is dead.
>>28467787More like dead is fun
>Science EXDoes this means she's better at SCIENCE! than Malal was at magic? Wow.
>>28467787Fun is currently sleeping the passenger seat with Souji.
>>28467799Malal would know better than anyone....I made myself sad.
>>28467787Pissing off the enemy's social call is simply another gambit in the arsenal of weapons Malal wields. This is INCREASED murderboner, by killing dignity.Ah, well, I missed voting time, so c'est la vie.
>>28467773>In contrast to her apprentice, Fran Madaraki, Strauss staunchly refuses to perform any alterations to her own body, nor will she sample any of her concoctions, no matter how “harmless”.This bit stands out more than the rest, for me at least.if we ever fight Strauss, I hope we'll inject her with something 'harmless' she created.
>>28467632Thaaaa... aaaat actually makes a disturbing amount of sense.
>>28467822I've already come up with a revenge plan, but it requires some experimentation first.Luckily we've got some disposable lab rats in the basement of the Officio to use for that!Chiaki's Soul Gem resembles a Grief Seed now, right? I wonder what would happen if we drove a spike into a Magical Girl's exposed grey matter...
So....Who wants to be coobie got the idea for the witch spike in the soul gem from Strauss's "work" on Kharn?
>>28467837No mindfucking people with soul gems! we're not going to cheat on Midori like that.
>>28467837it's not spiked it just feels like a Grief Seed when you scan it, like Enishi did, we might possibly be able to use it to cleans other gems though.
>>28467837>I wonder what would happen if we drove a spike into a Magical Girl's exposed grey matter...Very little, really, brain doesn't feel damage done upon it. The victim might lose some functions depending on parts you damaged (sight, balance, parts of memory, etc.) but given how Magical Girls work this shouldn't be that much of an issued, since they can regenerate.
>>28467850Not even meeee?
>>28467860You are for raping in a dirty alleyway
>>28467860For a second there I thought that was a pic of NECO without kneecaps
>>28467859>The victim might lose some functionsWell, yes, that was the plan.>since they can regenerateSo why didn't they just cut off Kharn's arms and legs and grow them back? She would have been just fine after something like that, right?
>>28467879Her fate when she interrupts the date
>>28467889There is a big difference in stabbing a part and letting it regenerate and whatever the fuck Strauss dis to Kharn and you know it
>>28467889>So why didn't they just cut off Kharn's arms and legs and grow them back?wouldn't help in the way she needs>She would have been just fine after something like that, right?yes, just fine with band new witch-flesh limbs
>>28467889But the Doktor did something to her soul gem, too. I suppose that makes the changes permanent. Also, it's witch flesh, normal laws don't apply to those.
>>28467902Wounds are a big weird for MG's. Generally they can be healed, but it's not a sure thing. They can scar, and certain wounds persist.It's a fair bet that whatever Strauss did to Ekatarina, it's not something that you can solve by amputation. One the Witch flesh fuses, it's part of the recipient and any attempt to regenate that limb would restore the witch flesh infused limb.
>>28467902Strauss used Witch bits.Chiaki's Soul Gem resembles a Grief Seed.Obviously, it's not the same, which is why I want to experiment on the Prophet's cronies, before they're executed. Not the full brainstab thing, just a scratch here and there.But wouldn't it be wonderful if we take from Strauss that which she values most, her intellect, and ensure that it can never be returned?
>>28467924Strauss is probably long dead.
>>28467937You may want to go look through the writeups.
>>28467924I would really rather not resort to horrendous acts like she did, it's not worth it.
>>28467943Thats Golden-Mecha-Strauss, made from the remnants of her dead body and a spare grief seed Faust had lying around.
>>28467561 >>28467566 >>28467570 >>28467609 >>28467618"Get fucked." You spit across the unauthorized connection that she seemed to have brute-forced into making with your own frequency. ...Ugh, you'll have to get its systems scrubbed when you get back home."Oh, zat hurt. Zat really, really hurt." Strauss clicks her tongue. "Really, now. You should realize by now zat you have no chance of gettingk out of zis city, MY CITY, alive. All exit points are by now blocked off, und any place that you may pop your little balloon to go up, up, up into the air have all been squared away." Another one of her gasping, clicking cackles here. "So, you have everything to lose here, Culexus, while I have everything to gain." A pause, here. "Ah, that reminds me, I've never had a Culexus as a test subject before. It shall be very interestingk--""Really?" You cut her off this time. "If the city's locked down like you say, then why bother negotiating in the first fucking place?" The rubber of Schpeltiger's handlebars creak as you grip them tighter. "Tell you what, now that you've had your saturday morning cartoon villain gloating, what are you really calling me for?"Another pause, a break in the communication, before she responds. And when she does, it comes as a flood of harshly-hissed words, jagged and sharp, hateful and fanged. Her accent growing thicker as anger overrides it."Liszen to me you little shit. I am Doktor Emma Strauss, ze Warmaster of ze Thirteenth. I have performed more zan a souzand experiments on Magical Girls, of vhich breadth and scope your little brain could not possibly comprehend. Und I am giving you one last chance to surrender."[1/2]
>>28467960DECULTURE! DECULTURE WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE PLOTthanks guys this is great
>>28467963"Zid you zhink zat I vould only send gangers und murderers to capture you? I have ozzer experiments, experiments much deadlier zhan little Ekaterina there, and I vill not hesitate upon sending them to retrieve their youngest zister back - as well as your corpse. I am calling out of ze goodness of my heart, vhich you vill be vise not to mistake as veakness." She sucks in a breath from between her teeth, the sound curiously reptilian. "Now, vill you comply, return vhat is rightfully my property, und ve vill end this horrible business amicably - or vill you sign your own death varrant and ve killed by my children?"How do you respond?Kill the connection, continue as planned.Refuse. Continue baiting her until she gets even more angry.Ask what she did to Ekaterina instead. Scientists love talking about their nerdy shit.
>>28467975>[x]Refuse. Continue baiting her until she gets even more angry.Angry opponent is a messy opponent. One with a lot of openings.
>>28467948It doesn't compare, not even remotely, and you know it.>>28467975[x]Kill the connection, continue as planned.Baiting her could cause her to figure out we have an escape plan.Getting her to talk about what she did to Ekaterina would just make us angry.Time to go fast.
>>28467975>[X]Refuse. Continue baiting her until she gets even more angry."Badger Cunt Dicks."
>>28467975>Go all out baitingIf your other experiments take 10x the effort to shut down as Ekaterina I'll be out of here in minutes.
>>28467975[X]Kill the connection, continue as planned.No fucks.
>>28467975[X]Kill the connection, continue as planned.all focus on getting the hell out.
>>28467975>[X]Ask what she did to Ekaterina instead. Scientists love talking about their nerdy shit.Anger is good. We can use anger.And if it keeps her talking, then so much the better.
>>28467975>[x]Ask what she did to Ekaterina instead. Scientists love talking about their nerdy shit.try something along the lines of "If you have deadlier things then you don't really need her, do you?". Might get her talking.
>>28467975>[X]Ask what she did to Ekaterina instead. Scientists love talking about their nerdy shit.Keep her talking. Plus if she tells us what she did she may spill some information about how we could reverse the process, however unlikely that is.
>>28467975>[x] Ask what she did to Ekaterina instead. Scientists love talking about their nerdy shit.
>>28467975[X]Refuse. Continue baiting her until she gets even more angry.[X]Ask what she did to Ekaterina instead. Scientists love talking about their nerdy shit.Hahahaha, I almost forgot to vote
>>28467975Your property? I seem to remember that Ekaterina is a contractee of the ninth meaning you kidnapped and attacked her which is actually enough justification for your head at least as repayment, if you want to offer that then I will return your "property"
[X]Refuse. Continue baiting her until she gets even more angry.[X]Ask what she did to Ekaterina instead. Scientists love talking about their nerdy shit.Well, we can bait her to talk about what she did to Ekaterina
welplooks like it's time for more suffering
>>28467975>[x]Ask what she did to Ekaterina instead. Scientists love talking about their nerdy shit.Might help.
>>28467975[x]Kill the connection, continue as planned.[x]NitroNothing says fuck you by speeding up and Strauss is obviously watching us.
>>28467975[x]Kill the connection, continue as planned.Steady as she goes.
>>28467975[X]Ask what she did to Ekaterina instead. Scientists love talking about their nerdy shit.More Strauss dialogue, more!
She isn't tracking us via the connection, is she?Right?
>>28468053She obviously is.You guys want to bluster and taunt and you know what'll happen?Everything will go completely to shit, and you'll have nobody to blame but yourselves.
>>28467975MAGIC WANDMAKE MY MONSTER GROOOOOW
>>28468053she can probably track kharn either way. Stealth probably isnt an option for us,
>>28468069The Pants monster cannot grow with sallaka
>>28467975[X]Kill the connection.
>>28467975Hey decu did Kharn ever end up on the receiving end of a wendy special from Malal or was it always either KO or nothing?
Wonder why Coobz hasn't offered Mrs Strauss a job yet.
>>28468076Speak for yourself she can make mine grow plenty
>>28468085Because QB is a good boss.No experimenting on the staff.
>>28468053I don't think she really needs to, she runs varrigan so she probably has lots of eyes on us and is just calling to take distract us
>>28468053Of course she is.But this is Malal. She should be able to do something about that.
>>28468092>-Contrary to popular belief, the Doctor isn't all crazy mad scientist experiments. She has written numerous papers concerning the effects of various chemicals on soul gems and magical girl physiology and single-handedly created the foundation for many modern Venenum practices.
>>28467975[x]Other[x]"I nearly pity you. In the great scale of things you are completly insignificant. A mere side character, not even a player, barely a pawn herself. I actually wonder if you even made it do the playboard on the first place. Ekaternia? She is important. Yet for all the brilliance of yours, Doc, you failed to see how important she is. So for all the things you did to Ekaterina let me place a curse on you. Its a tiny but powerful curse. Its something that will haunt you until the rest of your days. Something that will devour you from the inside until everything you build up and created is in shambles: Its the curse of curiosity. Because you see.. You will never find out what kind of game I am talking about. Enjoy."[x]Cut the Connection.And this is how you fuck with an Egomaniac.
>>28468114>the Doctor isn't all crazy mad scientist experimentsSo she still partially is.AND look what she did to Kharn. QB won't want that.
>>28468124Kharn sort of became his finest Eversor.. I'm sure he would pay for more.
>>28468116too latetoo much derpvotes anyway
>>28468124Yeah. That kind of thing is more for other Officios.
>>28468128Killed all his Culexus, including the one that was basically running the Officio, while Kharn served as a figurehead at best?
>>28468128>QB>wanting more than one Kharn.
>>28468132Fucking settled.>capture wild NECO>give her to Amber as a gift of friendship between Officios>>28468139Wow, aren't you holding a flowery view of the bastard alien cat? Holy shit.
>>28468146This version is different, if you hadn't noticed.It actually cares about the megucas under it.
>>28468143If he hadn't thought her worth it, doubt he had sent them to recover her. Would have just put her down and call it a day.
>>28468144The officio would be known as the horniest instead of the murderers.
>>28468151Not to mention the effect of having a few dozen Kharn's with no Malal to keep them in line?The entire city would be raped in a matter of hours
>>28468157It's not as if it was the most chaste, all things considered.
>>28468156He probably ordered that and Malal went over his headThe culexus corp would probably listen to her more than the rat anyway
>>28468151You might have missed that the contracts are still going on. If anything, he's now farming his contractees with industrial efficiency. Don't get all teary-eyed now thinking that he's your best pal in the world. He still has a quota and needs powerful megucas by his side. Just because he's willing to make their lives semi-comfortable before they witch out means nothing.
>>28468151I'm not so sure that QB cares, exactly.The slimy little fuck is still difficult to get a read on.But he does like money, and a healthy officio is the best way to get it. And he revels in a well ordered and efficient Officio.Plus, he digs ear scritchies.Really, it seems that long term exposure to human insanity has been teaching most of the QB's some bad habits.
>>28468180>>28468171Actually I remember a mention of him changing after Malal contracted from the fuzzy dick we love to hate to the corporate executive we still try to hate but are having trouble with it because he is actually half decent
>>28468171Compared to other Incubators, he's Gandhi and Mother Theresa combined.
>>28468187And? He might have mellowed out a bit since his canon incarnation. By that I mean that he now offers a candy for your soul where originally he didn't do even that. And you lot go around screaming "he cares man, he really cares!".It's still just business for the little bastard, which is fine with me.
>>28468187Well, we've really only seen Koobs and Joobs.And Joobs has picked up some extremely bad habits, by comparison.
>>28468186Malal best Malaldoka.
>>28468171Incubators do what incubators do.They form contracts, they farm entropy, they hire out magical girls as killers.Thats is what they do, that is what we expect of them.BUT compared with other incubators, there are lines QB will not cross.He refuses to assume direct control of his contractees, he absolutely abhors the idea of forcefully witching out the girls under him. They even have an option of retirement without a bullet.A happy magical girl is a much more productive magical girl, QB said so himself. Imagine the impact on morale if news gets out that the boss is sanctioning experiments on the rank and file magical girls forcefully. It quickens their inching towards the despair threshold since they can't do anything. It's counter-productive to keeping the workforce at high efficiency and increases the rate of turnover. All for the increased capabilities of a handful of magical girls.The potential losses outway any benefits, even if the augmented magical girls are not stark raving mad. From a business standpoint, QB will choose not to allow such operations to take place.
>>28468206Mate I don't know what you going on about. QB runs his Officio as a (semi) respectable business; Jyuubey runs his Officio like a chinese sweatshop.I have a feeling we'll be finding out just how much higher the Tenth's turnover rate is fairly soon.
>>28468217>that the boss is sanctioning experiments on the rank and file magical girls forcefullyThis came from where?
>>28468217Fuck, QB is one of those dang socialists!
>>28468206I'm cool with that. He's a good boss. By which I mean, he's an incredibly competent and savvy boss that won't fuck you over for teh lulz or out of laziness like Jyubey.
>>28468206>It's still just business for the little bastard, which is fine with me.yeah, exactly. He's an OK boss, but I wouldn't count on the little furry fuck to have your back when you need it.>>28468217>He refuses to assume direct control of his contractees, he absolutely abhors the idea of forcefully witching out the girls under him. They even have an option of retirement without a bullet.To be fair, that's because he's fucking Witch Farming in Siberia. He's got a certain largesse with his grief seeds because he can afford to.By comparison, I think Joobs has been battery farming his contractees using his own Callidus's illusions to try and compete, but even so he can't really match Kyubeys output.and then Kyubey stole his best Callidus, which has put him even further behind.
>>28468226Which magical girl is going to submit themselves willingly to go under the knife for 'upgrades' and experimentation under strauss?
>>28468225I have no idea what you're on about either. Where did I disagree about Coobz being better than JB? The whole point was that QB treats his girls better, but only because it makes for better business. He doesn't give much of a shit about their fate beyond that.
>>28468186I thought that was Mami?
>>28468186So that was Malal's wish, then?
>>28468241>completely missed the writeups about her making kickass combat drugs>missed the part where there would be volunteersdoing it for more power>doesn't count all the potential POW like the ex-Third and now Oriko's merry bunch of walking deadWhy are you so shortsighted? I give you a brilliant scientist and all you can think of are "DISSECTIONS FTW"? I expected better.Strauss is one hell of an asset and nobody practical would miss out on hiring her.
>>28468263>>completely missed the writeups about her making kickass combat drugsThat she refuses to take herself.That is HIGHLY suspect. Has it even gone through testing to make sure its safe? If yes, why does she not take it herself?>>missed the part where there would be volunteersdoing it for more powerI see kidnapped girls like kharn being transformed into half-witch monster hybrids. I cannot see a magical girl volunteering for such a procedure.>>doesn't count all the potential POW like the ex-Third and now Oriko's merry bunch of walking deadDo not employ magical pows. Kill them or ransom them. The Ex-Third mess shows that very adequately. And now you want to give them more weapons. Bravo.
>>28468263the thing about the officio system is you don't have to hire someone directly to benefit from them.See Malal and her Culexus suits for an example.Strauss wouldn't be a good fit for Kyubey's Officio, but with enough money he can still benefit from her more palatable labors.
>>28468263Practicality is one thing. Someone willing to start wars between officios just so she can mutilate and torture magical girls for her own amusement is bad for morale and worse for business. Mote the internal uprising occurring as we speak.
>>28468263>completely missed the part where said combat drugs were extreme addictive and detrimental to the user's mental health>missed the part where she happily go well beyond the agreed-to procedures, asking 'Informed consent? What are you talking about, she came to me of her own will, did she not?' all the while>experiment on POWs to give them super powers is a good ideaYou're a retarded chucklefuck. Go die.
>>28468282>Has it even gone through testing to make sure its safe? The fifth batch is supposed to be safe enough.>If yes, why does she not take it herself?Because she isn't a combatant?>I cannot see a magical girl volunteering for such a procedure.That's your problem then. If I was a meguca, I'd visit her readily for some augmentations.>Kill them or ransom them.Or experiment before sending them to the other side. You're incredibly shit on managing resources, you know that?>>28468286>Someone willing to start wars between officiosI admit I missed the war where 9th wiped out the 13th. Apologies.>>28468291You fucking retard. The drugs were getting better with each new version. Her client was stupid and bought the worst of the bunch. This is why you people would never make good Incubators.
>>28468282Believe it or not, most scientists do not actually use themselves as test subjects unless there's some kind of desperate reason to. Even if they're making harmless drugs. As for why she won't take them after the testing phase, it's probably assumed that she has no personal interest in their effects. She's a scientist and not a combat monster, after all.
Gentlemen.A proposition, a simple one.All this talk of Strauss being of use to us has one problem.Would Murderface REALLY want to do anything with her? Especially after this flashback ends and she's heard about what she's done?So, let's all ignore the positives and negatives of whether to use her and just kill her if she causes us trouble, hm?
>>28468329I trust we'll give her the full Murderface Experience.
>>28468316a warmaster is permanently on the active duty roster and takes missions regularly. its part of the role.
>>28468337Part of the role in the Ninth. The Thirteenth is a completely different beast.
>>28468337Not all missions are combat-related. And not all combat requires super strength or blasty powers. Whatever drugs she's peddling may not actually be tailored to boosting her Venenum abilities, so they just might not be that useful to her. At least, that is the assumption that some could make about the reason she doesn't take them, the truth being a different matter.
>>28468316>If I was a meguca, I'd visit her readily for some augmentations.Kyouko: "My vision is augmented."
>>28467991Well, now. You like this particular Strauss more - someone who has the decency to talk straight with you, someone who doesn't need to wax on forever about shit you don't need to hear. You'll consider her terms, and give your answer posthaste. But before you do - can she just tell you something you've been itching to find out?"Eh? Vhat is it?" Strauss' voice is still tight with anger, but with a decidedly marked decrease in crazy. "Ah, you vant to find out about Ekaterina, eh? Curious about Doktor Strauss' brilliant experiment?"Well, she can say that, yes."Hmm. Maybe I am mistaken about you, little Culexus." The Warmaster's anger seems to quickly give way to a grudging interest. "Very well. You are familiar with the life cycle of a Magical girl, yes? The fate that awaits us if we neglect our Soul Gems?"Yeah. Yeah, everyone knows that. Any Incubator makes it a point to mention it when they present the contract, and it's always in big, bold print."Yes. The Gift of Truth." Strauss cackles. "Zen, humor me here a bit. Magical Girls and Vitches - zey are different, very different from each other, yes? Vun is a stalwart defender of good against evil-" She snorts here. "...und the other is a mindless monster who is reduced to their baser instincts. But zey are two sides of the same coin, are zey not?"It's a bit of a stretch, but you suppose so. Still, you don't see how that connects to hacking up Ekaterina's limbs and welding crazy shit onto them--"Ah! So impatient! Just like Americans!" The thickly-accented Warmaster tuts here, loudly. "See, zat is vhat I am trying to do. Two disparate zides, two evolutionary extremes. I vant to create a link between the two - Magical Girls who retain conscious thought and personality, vith all ze strength of a Witch! SYNTHESIS!"...What. So, the things on Ekaterina's arms and legs really are--[1/2]
>>28468378"Are only vhat you see!" Strauss is positively laughing now. "Her claws and legs are merely vhat is presented on ze outside! Her body, her mind, her biological makeup, her DNA, even her SOUL...I have managed to do it! Ze first ever synthesis of a Magical Girl and a Witch!"Her cackling is drowned out by the sound of what sounds like a thousand hot-wired engines being gunned to their limits behind you - and you turn to see a thousand-wheeled monster eating up the road. A collective of nitro-injected punknaughts, motorcycles, and junker beasts of cars with all sorts of weaponry lashed onto them. You make to spit out an epithet, before Strauss' voice shrieks a single word into your ear. "MAERORUS!"More cackling, here, and you grit your teeth at this. Jesus, to do something like that...You're no longer dealing with saturday morning villain crazy here. You're dealing with advanced crazy."Yes, my dear Culexus, what you have zere with you is the first Maerorus in existence." It's here that Strauss lets out a satisfied sigh. "Und I need her back to show to my...generous benefactors zat my experiment, after so many failed attempts, finally vorked. So you see, she is very important to me, und I vould like to have her back." A chuckle. "Ah, ze first bounty hunter force should be making zere appearance now, yes? So, you vill agree zat ve do not need to pursue zis to its final stupidity, ja? Pull over, lay down your weapons, und tell their leader - he will be a particularly ugly-looking fellow with a pink mohawk - that you are submitting yourself to Strauss' mercy. He vill know, und he vill deliver you three unharmed to me. I vill take my assistant and Ekaterina back, und you vill be allowed to return to wherever you came from."How do you respond?
>>28468400[X] Aim for the guy with the pink mohawk.
>>28468400[x] Press buttun to release small bombs to the rear.[x] Press Nitro to go FASTERThe resulting explosions should be enough to be a good middle finger.
>>28468400>[x] The head with a pink mohawk on it. Make it explode.We can do that, right? It was an option in an earlier thread.
>>28468400>>28468409[X] I like how this anon thinks
>>28468400[x] "Go fuck yourself with a cactus."
>>28468316You're the kind of guy who gets on the Enron board, aren't you?
>>28468400[x]"He has to catch me first"[x]NITRO
>>28468400[x] "You drive a hard bargain, except there's one thing that I know and you don't."I don't die in Varrigan City."Maximum nitro.
>>28468400[x] "Yeah, no." Bombs away! Then nitro boost. Madaraki said they have cannons, that should take care of pursuers.
>>28468400[X] From how far away can we take mechanical stuff apart with our Culexus Mojo? even if it is just a small bit, it might help.if that doesn't work, bombs and whatever we can find to slow them down.
>>28468400>>28468417This. Fighting them is stupid, just outrun them.
>>28468426I'd blush if I knew how.
>>28468400[x] "Sorry lady, but you're not the one who'll kill me and neither is some ridiculous pink mohawk."
>>28468446they have nitro, we at least need to slow them down.
>>28468400[X] Sure. i'll get right on that. But one question....If you were so sure I wasn't going to escape....why dd you bother calling me in the first place?>Pink Mohawk explodes. Ciao, Crazy Lady. >Nitro.
>>28468400Just nitro, we can ask Fran anything we need to know. We've wasted enough time on crazy villains.
>>28468400[x]"Yeah, okay, remember how I said get fucked earlier? I'm saying it again. Get fucked." Then bombs/nitro combo.
>>28468400Call them off or Ekaterina dies now.I wanted to save her. But now, after hearing exactly what you've done to her... Well, that changes things. I should really put her out of her misery. Deny you your precious triumph.
>>28468400I like to think this one and the Sayaka one are directly linked. They're both given signs to write something nice of their choosing on. Sayaka writes a sweet compliment about Kyouko.Kyouko writes LICK MY ARMPITS YEAAAAH
>>28468501She loses her either way, ya know.
>>28468513and ironically, Malal wants Ekatarina alive as much as Strauss wants her back.>>28467505>No, That'll be enough. Yeah, it'll be alright. So long as she's functional. So long as she's still in the game as your one ace. The one up your sleeve, along with all the others. Some already in play, others you've yet to palm into your hand.
>>28468528>>28468513Still think it would be a convincing bluff. Could at least get the gangers off us for a little while, until we get into range of the Rafflesia's guns and can use them to clear the way.
>>28468528Couple that with >>28467505>And you're playing for all the fucking marbles. All the marbles there are, was, and ever will be.and I think Malal might be gunning for same thing Madoka did, happiness of megucas errywhere. Just without ascension. Wonder what's her plan.
>>28468544>Wonder what's her plan.To re-ascend the fuck out of Madoka, I've been assuming. Though you've got me wondering if she's reading from the same hymn sheet as her double, now.I'd be just like Fucking Malal to use the info Madoka gave her for her own, better agenda.
>>28468566What if it's to separate Pinky from Godoka? She knows Pinky was taking extra interest in us, must have put 2 and 2 together to assume we're special. We might be the central piece in her plan meant to occupy Pinky while others do something about her. And the 'others' might be Homura with the weird wings. Seriously, how can she exist on the same plane as Pinky and they haven't yet come to blows. Or sweaty sex. Something ain't right.
>>28468596Its Homucifer, I bet.
>>28468596>Something ain't right.The something that ain't right is Chiaki.
>>28468620Even our biology is fucked.
>>28468596Other Homu wants us dead.Other Homu also screamed like crazy when Malal decided to contract. Homucifer is not pleased. At all.
>>28468627Bingo. We're not supposed to be here.I -think- we may intended to be a replacement for the Homura who fucked up Madoka.
>>28468652The Homura who fucked Madoka has probably now ascended herself. But who made us then?
>>28468620>>28468627........what Strauss did to Kharn we managed through....what? Evolution? Magical Witchgirl fuckery? I have the feeling Strauss would take one look at Chaiki and have an anyurism.
>>28468652Either that or we're this worlds Homu, like Malal is this worlds Meduka.
>>28468670>this worlds HomuNah, Decu said that one is still around.With universe related powers..
>>28468670Hmm...Kaneda Madoka had a different name to Kaname Madoka...Maybe if we asked our database staff to look for any Homuras?
>>28468666Puts a whole new perspective to the procedure at Siberia.
>>28468672We're still around, with fantabulous alcohol imbibement powers.
>>28468679Very, very early on we asked Kyubey to search for any Akemi Homuras that might have contracted or be enrolled in schools. Kyubey found no one.
>>28468596>>28468637Going by the Rebellion, SPOILER WARNING, madoka being separated from her godhood, then it makes sense that there's madoka and homura copies all running around while godoka and homulucifer go all cray cray in their machinations
>>28468665Unknown.But the way things are going it was probably FUCKING MALAL somehow, just like everything else
>>28468693AKEMI Homura.This Madoka had a different surname. Mayb this Homu does too.
>>28468693of course, he was using databases that Malal had fucked around with.and Malal had the Akemi name just waiting for us before Kharn decided that we looked like a Murderface
>>28468694>spoilersShe's not separated from her godhood, she's just trapped in an utopia Homucifer made for her. She's not happy about it.
>>28468693That's because we're looking for AKEMI Homura.We won't find Kaname Madoka either, but a Kaneda Madoka exists.Ergo, there is a Homura around, different family name, looks like us, is clearly the local Homu, and is possibly crazy. Unless she saw the teeny, tiny, sane part of Homura in her dreams rather than having... right.
>>28468709Rebellion SpoilersShe IS separated. The scene in question has Homura separating Madoka from Madokami. The translation is awful, but she basically look Madoka out and stole "the law of cycles" for herself.
>>28468709To be fair, I'm pretty sure that Homu did that to stop the QB's from tapping her powers.When you look at her world, it's custom set up so that sooner or later, everyone in it is going to rebel, just like she did.In the meantime, I think she's trying to teach the QB's to despair so they'll learn the value of hope and have to work with Madoka if they want out.Once again, Homura is Madoka's equal and opposite.
>>28468718>We won't find Kaname Madoka"Kaname Madoka" is a contact on our cell-phone.
>>28468740And we still have no explanation for that.
>>28468751I assumed it was because the phone came from the same place as our shield.Hand me downs from our doppleganger.
>>28468747jesus christ, cat. Just watch the fucking Camrip already.
>>28468760Maybe. That makes sense.Still, if SHE'S Akemi Homura, the one that Misaka said is the only one that could fix our shield...Once again, we need to look for Homuras, without the Akemi.
>>28468732So there are two Madokas?
>>28468768Some people are snobs about quality. I am a snob about extremely mediocre two-steps-above Duwang translations.It's 'cause I'm a writer, nya.
>>28468747Spoilers are marked. Don't be a cunt
>>28468778or possibly Akemi's without the Homura.But I don't think we're going to find anything until Malal decides it's time.
>>28468790Nothing wrong with the subs, they're a bit silly here and there but they're not even near Duwang tier.
>>28468760We got our cellphone destroyed at some point. The smartphone we got afterwards also already had the contacts.
Just ignore this neco retard
>>28468747Stop reading them.
>>28468732>>28468709This is wrong, Hat-chan. She is not separated at all. That was the case in Homura`s Barrier but not after Homura rewrote things. The last scene with Madoka where things come full circle imply that Madoka still is Madokami and she just doesnt remember it. If she should remember it she would awaken as Madokami again. Thanks to Homucifer Megucas dont exist anymore because Curses who have birth to witches and later demons dont exist anymore in the first more. In place of curses there exists Homucifer. That said, I think you are all shitty people for discussing stuff from the Rebellion movie even thought many people still havent watched it.
>>28468797Really? I tried watching them and they still had a bunch of fucking spanish in them.
>>28468803Fucking Malal, man. I'm telling you, that bitch is crazy organised.I assume there was some kind of online backup and restore connected to that diary app.Which is why Strauss should be fucking -terrified- of what Malal is doing to her computers right now.
>>28468797Ehn, I'm not going to get into this here because it's basically me being an elitist fuckwad, and I won't say anything else if people keep doing it. But if people can whine about Dan Kim not drawing the right gun I can bitch about spoilersBut also stop having fun, it's the enemy of the state.
>>28468838>stop having funall over that
How long until Rebellion gets released on video? I saw a comparison between the camrip and the trailer and it looked like 3/4 of the screen was cut off at times.
>>28468826No, you are wrong.Megucas and demons still exist. Sayaka and Kyouko have their rings, Homura mentions demons to Sayaka.Homura only phisically reshaped world inside her barrier, without changing laws.
>>28468793>>28468813>>28468793Personally the only cunts I see in this thread are you three. "Go watch the camrip" is not an option. If you want to act like that you can fuck off right back to /a/ now. I know that some people lack even common courtesy but come the fuck on..
>>28468861In his defense, any /jp/fag that calls himself neco can only be a cunt
And it's finished. Phew. That took a while.
>>28468861I'm not even posting any spoiler, I didn't watch the camrip and don't intend to do so. But the spoilers are actually spoilered, and announced as such, so stop being a fucking faggot and stop reading them. Godoka.
ALL THAT ASIDE thank you for marking spoilers, guys talking about the movie.>>28468880You new to this quest nigga
>>28468860..Did you only watch half of the movie or what? Its like you are missing the whole ending..
>>28468880It's the name of a character, not a person. Do you even read this quest?
>>28468861>"Go watch the camrip" is not an option.evidently, it is. Or people wouldn't be discussing it.Of course, if you dont' wanna watch it, that's fair enough. But you can't realistically expect people NOT to want to talk about it.
>>28468882Go Hat-chan you the gender ambiguous person! Sad you had to post it in the middle of a spoiler war though.
>>28468882did Midori always have that cleavage to her uniform?not that I'm complaining or anything!
>>28468882Now the question is, do we let Midori take us home like this after the date is ruined?
>>28468927What? Hell no, we'll carry her.
>>28468897I expect people to have enough courtesy or at least intelligence OR at least common sense to do that on /a/.Of course, If you want to say that you are as fucking retarded as the average /v/-goer and cant even tell where which discussion belongs when there are 500 Threads about the Rebllion movie on /a/ then not even god himself can save you.
>>28468927Isn't that kind of unavoidable since we made her live with us like some kind of indentured servant?
>>28468939but she's so fat
>>28468911I did that on purpose to stop the shouting match, of course.
>>28468949Going home together is unavoidable yes.Having her carry us like that or vice-versa is a different beast all together
>>28468919>Midori moves in with us>somehow makes alterations to her uniform cleavageI'd believe it's a thing.
>>28468891I am talking about the ending. Maybe you should rewatch it?
>>28468949>implying Midori hasn't been there more than we have now.
>>28468956not him, but thank you, you make things excellent, possibly-alien being
>>28468956Oh yes, I knew that. I was only pretending to be retarded.>>28468959Hopefully a beast with two backs
>>28468939That's blasphemy anon.>>28468927Yes.
>>28468911I firmly believe Hat-chan is a grill. The way they present themselves and their art style leans more towards feminine.
>>28468952>fat"Healthy" is the word you're looking for here. Fucking cat.
>>28468919My original design of her costume was rather low cut, but her bust wasn't decided on back then so it's sort of an unintended side-effect?
>>28468952>>28468985>not wanting to princess carry our princessYou all disgust me.
>>28468994Have we..ever seen her use a dagger?
>>28469007>not wanting to be the princessYou disgust me.
>>28468994One that is more than welcome.>>28468987I really only said that because of the running joke.Guy/Grill Hat-chan does great art.
>>28469007But Chiaki is the princess.
>>28469016how about we compromise and just get a piggy back ride instead.
>>28469007>>28469016That's nyot even our princess
>NECO being this jelly of the jelly
>>28469012When I was drawing the design, Decu asked for a wrist-blade and daggers.She was going to use the wrist-blade against RibbonHomura, but that didn't quite work out
>>28469016We can be Mami's princess.>>28469027I thought we were her kneecapping knight in shining armor.
>>28468987I don't see how it matters...>>28469031NECO you can have her alright? We'll leave her all to you.
>>28469031That's no princess.
>>28469012Presumably she was ready to use them during Get Fucked. This was probably a mistake against hordes of shadow familiars and full-power Homura.
>>28469031Fuck the DEagle. Let's bring the Gorefamily to the date.
>>28469042I thought we were her [CENSORED]
>>28469042>I thought we were her kneecapping knight in shining armor.Only in public.One-dimensional stereotypical roles are all boring anyway. Plus, everyone knows switches have the best sex-lives.
>>28469035What does Midorin have in common with jelly?Answer: Jiggle~
>>28469031Eww no. There are much better Idols.>>28469041So Assassin's Creed Midori?
>>28468882Hey. Hey Hat-chan hey! I have a great Idea what you totally need to draw. After I watched Rebellion it hit me like a brick.You need to take this and replace Reginald with Chiaki.Then you need replace Beartato with Pinky.And instead of the popcorn we need a blackeyed Ribbonhomu..It would be perfect!
>>28469064>much better idolsAnd half the fanbase wanted to see her dead.
>>28469064Assassin's Creed got added to her design when Decu asked for a wrist-blade. My original inspirations for her costume were Code Geass, Rozen Maiden, Odin Sphere and Fate/Extra
>>28469064That isn't supposed to be a spoiler.Nor Kagamine Rin.Goddammit Moot
>>28469088>Odin Sphere and Fate/ExtraI had thought these were an influence.I don't know enough about the other two though.Rosen Maiden's that one with all the goth lolita dolls right?
I can't see Madokaverse as being anything other than a prequel to every Magical Girl show ever made now.Somehow, Madoka and Homu balance out and make the universe safe for girls in frilly outfits to fight suspiciously non-threatening "darkness".
>>28469042>I thought we were her kneecapping knight in shining armor.Personally, one of the things I like the most about the Chiaki and Midori pairing is that they seem to be able to switch roles really easily. It just makes them really adorable together, when they can both be assertive and unsure at differing moments.
>>28469087Nah this idol.>>28469125Every relationship needs a little give and take afterall.Plus it would be hard for Chiaki to not be unsure of anything given her condition.
>>28469125Midori's face in that cheek panel..>is this really happening?
>>28469125By the by. That thigh one is a most wonderful combination of loving and sultry
>>28469188Chiaki knows what she wants.
>>28468437 >>28468417You grit your teeth and force yourself, for what seems to be like the fourth or fifth moment, to calm down and think rationally. It's much too easy to get angry with someone like Strauss - someone who believes that she's in the right no matter how wrong she is. She's even proud of it, reveling in what she's done like it's some sort of goddamn achievement.Well. If there's one thing you learned about her type - it's that they're never worth dealing with. Never worth trusting. They'll turn on you on a drop of the hat, and justify it as the right decision at the time. The right decision for themselves, with no regard for anyone else.You turn to Souji and signal to him to hold on."You drive a hard bargain, Strauss," You finally reply as you flick the open cover of the second nitro charge open with your right thumb. At the same time, you press gently on the 'GRENADES' button with your other thumb - the compartments at the back once more clicking with their deadly payload, but not yet releasing. "And I'm really glad you shared that information with me. Any other day I'd have done what you asked. But there's something I know that you don't.""Hmmmm? Zat is impossible, you know. I am Doktor Emma Strauss, and zere is nothing I do not know!"You press both buttons hard, at the same time."I don't die in Varrigan City.""Eh? Vhat are you talking about--" Strauss starts, before the deafening whine and the searing heat of the engine overcharging itself begins to make itself known. "No. NO! YOU VILL REGRET ZIS, YOU FOOL, I--"The second charge doesn't feel like a shove in the back like the first one did - rather, this time it feels like a solid, massive kick slamming hard against you and sending you screaming into the follow-through. A deep, bassy explosion of force that once more turns the entire scenery into nothing but a blur, making wind resistance feel like knives tearing at your suit, hooking into your flesh and then pulling back.[1/2]
>>28469219You dimly hear Souji shout something, but it's lost in the guttural, roaring protest of reality on how fast you're actually going. Schpeltiger itself is shaking, shaking hard enough to nearly buck you off of your seat, but you hang on as hard as you can. Forcing the monstrous bike to your will. To your will.Images and scenery whip by, too fast too see, but you focus your attention forward enough that you can catch glimpses of it. Other hordes of gangers and bikes, joining the chase from streets and towns the Red Line is cutting across - but being thrown to the side at the resulting turbulence at your passing. One particular punknaught seemed to have the idea of ramming into you the moment you came into a particular T-junction had its entire front sheared off - simply by being too close the moment you shot past. The rest of it ended up rolling through five ramshackle buildings, bouncing a couple of times before smashing through a wall.It's here, once the second charge had finally petered out - and the horde earlier all but a memory, left behind in your dust - that something else makes its presence felt above you. One whose engine roar managed to drown out that of Schpeltiger's....It's a plane. A big one. It's a fucking C-130, flying low enough that you can almost see the rivets on its hull. With another deafening roar, it soars ahead of you, presenting a rear door already in the process of opening.And it's here that you see a...something. A deformed form, clearly seven feet tall, rippling with bulging, veined muscles and ridged with bony spikes. Some sort of device, embedded deep in the middle of its wide frame, glowing a bright, blinding yellow. Its hulking arms terminating not in hands, but in long metal cylinders, each one brutally spiked and edged.And beside it is a hunched form, with wild scraggly hair, a top hat and the most crazed grin you've ever seen.Strauss.[2/3]
>>28469188Thigh is goodBelly is betterI love Dusty's Castle
>>28469247You see her say a single word - and the monstrosity beside her flings itself out of the plane.Both spiked arms reaching out towards you as it sends itself hurtling directly into your path. Time seems to slow down here again, syrupy in pace, allowing you to say two words just before the inevitable happened.. . .Well. Shit.What do you do?Try to shoot it in the face just before it hits.Try to swerve around it at the last possible moment.Nitro.
>>28469262>Not backBest one.
>>28469271Unless we're packing a lot more heat than I thought, shooting it won't do shit to stop its momentum even IF it somehow killed it. So...[x]Nitro.
>>28469271>[X]Try to swerve around it at the last possible moment.Schpeltiger FTWbesides, what gun are we even carrying?
>>28469271[x] Nitro.Surge past that fucker and flip Strauss off as you become one with the speed force
>>28469271well, the only applicable course of action is go faster. soon enough, the big guns can shoot the 130 out of the air, and i doubt this meatbrain can keep up with the tiger on nitro.
>>28469271[x]Try to swerve around it at the last possible moment.
>>28469271>[x]Nitro.We probably can't OHKO the damn thing and swerving will leave us vulnerable to the cannons that the thing has in place of arms. So fuck, go fast all the way.Once we're safe, call Nico to paint the bike red.
>>28469271[x]Try to swerve around it at the last possible moment.Standing your ground against a Fleshpound is not the wisest of moves.
>>28469271[X]Nitro.If it's jumping at us, it's going forward. If we go fast, we'll just go under it.
>>28469271Nitro.Then, hold up Ekaterina's soul gem."CALL YOUR FREAKSHOW OFF OR I CRUSH THIS RIGHT NOW!"
>>28469271[X]Try to swerve around it at the last possible moment.Flesh pound! Shooting it only makes it more dangerous.
>>28469271>[x]Try to swerve around it at the last possible moment.>[x]And crowbar bat it away.All the FFVII:AC
>>28469271[X]Nitro.No need to waste any time here.
Thigh is objectively the best, peasants. Only thing that comes close is neck.
I'd suggest against Nitro. This is the last charge and Strauss just saw us use it.
>>28469271>[x] Nitro.Once you're in the air, you can't maneuver unless you're already a flyer. We shouldn't give this thing time to catch up to us.
>>28469271>[X]Try to swerve around it at the last possible moment.It may be better to save the nitro for now, given it may well be the kind of thing they are expecting.
>>28469302...OH FUCK FP.ssssssssssssssssssss>Player 1 had an aneurism
>>28469271>[X]Nitro.Sounds like a good idea
>>28469330Dude, if need be, we'll just use the Steamlight, it's all good.
Guys, it should be reminded that this is what our nitro does.>One particular punknaught seemed to have the idea of ramming into you the moment you came into a particular T-junction had its entire front sheared off - simply by being too close the moment you shot past.We might catch the thing and the plane in the effect and at least damage them both.
>>28469334BLOODY 'ELL, WOT'S 'E GOT ON 'IS ARMS?
>>28469328Personally, I really like Hair, Lips and Arm
Haha, I uh, was going over the information I usually do in preparation for later archiving, went to a different tab and when I switched back I clicked "Go!" without thinking.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived much to early, sorry, my bad.
>>28469271Fleshpounds take 2x dmg from explosives.[x] Hit it with explosives. If this bike doesn't have a rocket launcher in it, I'd be surprised.
>>28469271Guys, remember Fran? How she's in a battleship? And that she offered to have things shelled with horrifying abominations of science? I think now would be a good time to take her up on that.[X] Call Fran
>>28469271[x]ssssdddaaawwaaaI mean Swerve at the last possible moment
>>28469271>[x]Try to swerve around it at the last possible moment.don't wwant to overheat by burning the nitro charges right after another. And we might need the last one for something else. We only had three IIRC
>>28469375I am with this anon.[x] Bombard shore!
>>28469271I'd say Nitro, but the plane can get ahead of us again when it runs out, and she might have another beastie in there. Trying to shoot it just means we'll get hit with a tumbling body instead of an attack, assuming it dies in one shot.[x] Try to swerve around it at the last possible moment.
>>28469349Of course, Strauss just saw that happen. Why do you think she yelled "Fleshpound, I choose you".However, what she's not seen is how Malal can make Schpeltiger turn on a dime.
>>28469388What is strong against metal in Pokemon?
>>28469396Fire, fighting, ground
>it's a goddamn Fleshpound We need a sharpshooter with a crossbow, stat!
>>28469407Fire - Grenade.Fighting - I got nothing. Let Kharn lose on these boys.Ground - Stealth rock her!
>>28469271[x]Swerve at the last second.She's seen us Nitro before and still caught up in a plane, and shooting at it isn't going to do any good since it looks really heavy and is basically going to fall directly on us.
>>28469271[X] NitroLet the Shpeltiger roar!
>>28469420>Fighting - I got nothing>crowbar
>>28469420>Ground - Stealth rock her!Sadly, Rena isn't available until Monday at the earliest.
>>28469388Good point, actually, I forgot that line. Malal can probably juke this thing without losing control, and Nitro could overheat.
>>28469407How does one justify fighting being strong against a slab of metal?
>>28469271>[x]Try to swerve around it at the last possible moment.If it gets too close, apply crowbar to fleshface
>>28469444KenshiroI'd like to change my vote from>>28469331to >>28469332
>>28469271Voting swerve, then Nitro.>>28469419Hold that thought for later. We do technically have a sharpshooter, except that she's currently unconscious and recovering from a heavy dose of mad science. If we can get her to chill the fuck out for long enough, and get her a big enough gun, we could always do it that way.
>>28469444Heat metal up and it gets weaker.Pokemon fire is almost always retard-high temperatures anyway.
>>28469271How about we focus on taking out the beast's controller? Strauss is right there. Let's make her puke.
>>28469458Kharn cant shoot worth a dime though.
>>28469460Good point, but the range is too long.
>>28469459Fighting not fire.
>>28469464In which case, disregard that, I inhale phalluses
>>28469471Oh. Fuck if I know.
>>28469444That is strength, boy! That is power! What is steel compared to the hand that wields it? Look at the strength in your body, the desire in your heart, I gave you this! Such a waste. Contemplate this on the tree of woe. Crucify him!
>>28469454Now I am imagining every fighting unit to be from Fist of the North Star.
>>28469488 You broke into my house, stole my property, murdered my servants, and my PETS! And that is what grieves me the most! You killed my snake.
>>28469471Same reason warhammers can fuck up plate mail.Impact fucks up the innards due to the heavy vibrations and other physics babble that I can't remember at the moment.
>>28469503That actually do make sense.
>>28469501Why did he ask the girl to jump off a rock again?
>>28469501When I read that I thought about how that could be the last speech of lord Voldemort to Potter. Fukken weird.
>>28469520Charitably it was so you could see the wreckage caused by her body.More likely it's because Thulsa Doom is a dick.

>>28469027>>But Chiaki is the princess.
>>28469691I wish to throw money at you.
>>28469702Throw comms at him.You know you want to.
>>28469717what are "comms"?
>>28469691Other princesses aren't even needed anymore.
>>28469599we're doin' the Lords Work today, anon
>>28469769The Blessed Lady's work, you mean.
>>28468217>BUT compared with other incubators, there are lines QB will not cross.Very good ruse QB, nobody will suspect that an alien that can live for hundreds of years acts nice now and will turn utterly evil a couple hundred years down the line. I thought this was /tg/, do you even Tzeentch?And practically speaking, he's still getting all he could ever want for a nebulous purpose that might as well not exist for us. He's not saving anybody, he's selling hired guns, hitmen and mass murderers for the highest bidder. That's what he does to Humanity, the Entropy stuff might as well be a pretty lie to lull the magical girls (and you) into thinking he follows a higher goal. Not like you'll ever see the end use oif it anyway when Madoka witches out and destroys planet Earth, only because of him and his ilk.#removeincubator#1planet2small4us2
>>28469291 >>28469298 >>28469302 >>28469317You suck in a breath between your teeth - waiting for just the right moment to make your move. Strauss' monster - this thing of meat and metal and god knows what else - seems to hang in the air in freefall, and as it plummets ever closer, it's here that you see its eyes. Wide, glaring, and completely and utterly white. Black-veined and bloodshot, but no pupil whatsoever.The moment comes, and you take it. Shifting your weight to the side just as you turn the handlebars deftly, carefully, minutely. Compensating for the added weight of your passengers as you swerve around the falling creature - just enough to avoid it, and at the same time maintain the clean line of acceleration you're making.You could feel the Schpeltiger protesting here, at the kind of maneuvers you're forcing it to do in such a speed. There's a reason why Nicole loved this thing - it was a nightmare to control in the corners, but completely murderous in a straight line. Still, making it artful was something you could do with enough disregard for safety, and it's with a sigh of relief that you realize that you've succeeded in doing such - with the falling abomination whipping past you, its arms flailing desperately.You make to gun the throttle, to let the Schpeltiger pull away to safety when--CRASH.[1/2]
Kyoko is the best girl.
>>28470112Two sounds. The first a frustrated scream of rage coming from the ragged slit of flesh that Strauss' creation had for a mouth - followed immediately by the second, the ear-splitting crunch of metal smashing into metal and something tearing away at the impact. Immediately Schpeltiger bucks under you, the handlebars trying to twist themselves out of your grip as you lose control - causing Souji to yell, to scream from behind you. You grit your teeth as you fight the wounded beast you're riding for control - before it finally dies, and all three of you are thrown into the air as it crashes.The world starts to spin here, wildly, the sky and the ground alternating places, the sound of Schpeltiger's wreckage rolling end over end lending a tragic backbeat to your sudden flight. You catch the briefest glimpse of Souji about to crack his skull all over the pavement, the limp form of Kharn in his arms - and you throw your arm at him, along with what strength you can desperately tear from your reserves at the time.You have a moment's respite - to see Souji's motion arrest itself in midair, cancelling out his momentum in one split second - before you yourself fall mercy to physics, hitting the ground hard enough and fast enough that you feel several bones in several places crunch. Your ribs, certainly, and probably a wrist and an ankle - but your spine being twisted nearly to the point of breaking is new.Tasting pain and blood on your tongue, it's with a curse that you finally roll to a stop, five feet away from where Schpeltiger's ruined form lies on its side. Souji and Ekaterina landed a bit farther, but the young man is standing up even now, looking unscathed, along with the limp bundle in his arms.[2/3]
>>28470148He's pointing behind you. You can't make it out - the impact's fried your sound receptors, probably, it's nothing but static at the moment - but the guttural roar that suddenly erupts from behind you is loud enough to even penetrate your soundprooofed helm.You manage to pull yourself up to your knees - a motion that makes every single nerve ending in your body stab you to your very core, and your head to swim in a wave of nausea - and look."I'M...GONNA FIX YOU," The monster screeches, the words falling like a guttural avalanche. Half of its flayed face has been ground away, revealing bone - most probably from its fall, and being dragged by Schpeltiger before it tore the motorcycle's back wheel out. It slams its pillared hands together, metal sparking off of the impact. The glowing yellow light deep in its chest cavity pulsating, seemingly in time with its own heartbeat."Like him, little Culexus?" Strauss cackles into your ear, her voice broken up by intermittent bursts of static. You shake your head and get up onto your feet, willing your own Magical Girl physiology to start healing itself, to start knitting itself together - despite it not really working that way. "He is one of my little children. I have named him Butterfingers! It is very cute, don't you zhink?"That's...haah. Fuck. That's so funny she should kill herself."Ah, suicide! I have alvays sought it vould be such a vaste to do such a thing. But I guess you can call yourself doing zat too, since you did not accept my offer in ze first place."She cackles again, just as the C-130 flies overhead, back to where it came from. "Goodbye, little Culexus. I vill make sure to treat your corpse vid ze respect it deserves: NONE! Hakhakhakhakhakhhhh!"The Warmaster's laugh dwindles into static, and then silence. You shake your head again, before reaching over to pull your crowbar off of its maglock. [3/4]
>>28470160Bitch. You fucking crazy bitch, Strauss.Seems you'll have to put down this Butterfingers dude, then. Whatever it is. You look up at it. It's breathing hard, towering over you, what's left of its face twitching from facial tics. Most probably brought about by the jagged, painful-looking implants jutting out from its skull. ...Jesus. And you were close to the docks, already. The sign at the side of the road, a few meters away from where you crashed, said the docks were less than a few kilometers away.Gnh. Nothing for it.How do you react?Crowbar its face.Shoot it with the Desert Eagle you stole.Use 'that'.Tell Souji to take Ekaterina and keep running towards the docks. You'll...catch up. Yeah.
>>28470200>Tell Souji to take Ekaterina and keep running towards the docks. You'll...catch up. Yeah.
>>28470200[x] Use 'that'.Wop it out?
>>28470200>[X]Use 'that'.IT'S TIME!!!
>>28470200[x] Use 'that'
>>28470200[x]Use 'that'.Crowbar isn't going to be enough, nor is the Desert Eagle.
>>28470200Nothing for it, we'll have to [x]use 'that'.
>>28470200>>28470219>>28470220>>28470225>>28470226>>28470231When you give an option like 'that'... you have to know what's coming.
>>28470200>[x]Tell Souji to take Ekaterina and keep running towards the docks. You'll...catch up. Yeah.can't be too careful. Then>[x]Use 'that'.
>>28470200[x] Use Tranquilizer given to us by Madaraki.It's strong enough to stop Ekaterina, it should be strong enough to stop another of Strauss' creations.
>>28470200Request Rafflesia support.
>>28470200>[X]Use 'that'."You should know better than to wreck a biker's ride.">>28470219L O D S OF E M O N EWhat's that spell?
>>28470249that's what I thought 'that' might be. Can't say for sure though.
>>28470200[X]Use 'that'.I have no idea what I am voting for but I hope we're using that super sedative we got from Fran, 3 shots and it won't wake up, ever.Nico is going to kill us when she finds out about her bike.
>>28470200>[X]Use 'that'.But every time I used 'that', it got outsped by everything and couldn't take a hit!>>28470249Probably not. It only worked on Kharn because she wasn't in full rage mode; Butterfingers is prepped and ready to go.
>>28470275Souji used a different sedative on Kharn.
>>28470275Oh, you guys are talking about Frans stuff, not Soujis. Nevermind.
>>28470264>L O D S OF E M O N EFondle Moose
>>28470200[X] CrowbarWe don't have two bloody great handfulls so it isn't going to s!ow that prick down
>>28470242make fun of strauss over the space phone too after we knock her boy out with drugs
>>28470200[x]Zap Strauss with your Vomit-Ray[x]Use "That".
>>28470389The things I would do to evil Dokes. And her to me.
>Implying "That" isn't the Madokabow
>>28470410ok - so what all do we think 'that' even is?
Alright! Pausing for now, we continue tomorrow! Most voted action starts the new thread!Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always good!There doesn't seem to be any writeups today so questions answered before I sleep!
>>28470472Could we have avoided this scrap with the nitro option?
>>28470472>Use 'That'Was 'that' Chikuwa?
>>28470472I've been giggling like a moron this whole time Good show, guvna.
>>28470472Who is most princess of Chiaki and Midori?Time to sort this out once and for all.It's Chiaki right? Right? That's some real gap moe.
>>28470431...Oh no. It's the ACTUAL Madoka costume, isn't it?She was in it in that picture. Shit. Let me be wrong. Else Tomorrow will be hilarious and... Ergh...
>>28470472Thanks for running, the archive has been updated.Can we rebuild Schpeltiger?will Nico ever forgive us?
>>28470499Pretty much, yes! The first and third options were the safe options!>>28470513Hahaha! No, of course not!>>28470523Where's my bloody benefits check?>>28470532Huh! I'm not too sure, really! But Chiaki as a princess?
>>28470579Of course Chiaki is most princess.
>>28470579If we did avoid the FP, would the 130 have dropped more on us near the docks?
>>28470579They just had to swerve, seriously Shpeltiger's immunity to frontal impact would have made it awesome
>>28470579When do we get more Deculture-brand artwork?
>>28470549Well, of course! But Nico will definitely call you Ash Ketchum a whole lot.>>28470617That was a possibility, yes!
>>28470629Sharp curvy turns are usually not great at absurd speeds.At least we learned that the flashy option can also be the worst one.
>>28470579>Shoot fleshpound with a deagle or non-hunting shotgun>safe optionwot mate
>>28470764I think the shoot option would have had us aim for the glaringly obvious weakpoint that this opponent has.
>>28470764in hindsight, it was in the air and might have knocked him off balance.but only Decu knows what else could have happened if we skipped fighting it.We could have gotten a fucking Patriarch.
>>28469328You've never had someone kiss the small of your back then.
>>28470808>but only Decu knows what else could have happened if we skipped fighting it.True.Decu did say that if we had skipped this fight, that another likely would have been prepared at the docks.By fighting the FP here, we got Strauss to go away, secure in her victory, rather than seeding our escape route with more surprises.
>>28470827None of us have.
>>28470846We're still several km's off the docks, no transport and a small motorized army after us. I'd rather have fought at the docks where the ship could have helped.
>>28470861Speak for yourself!
>>28470827Does nothing for me.
>>28470878It's a battleship. Several kilometers is fucking NOTHING if the targeting systems are as good as Fran says they are.
>>28470884Don't remind me of my loneliness. ;_;
>>28470897We're still there anon. If that thing starts shelling with no visual confirmation, we're pretty fucked.
>>28470921Doesn't need to be right on top of us, just needs to blow the highway to fuck before the mercs catch up.
>>28470938That would be great.I'm still skeptical about the shit they use as ammo tho..
>>28470956Inb4 G-Virus monstrosities to fight the Horzine monstrosities.
>>28470956>OI, BOSS!>Vat seems to be ze problem?>Th' whole highway is covered in giant radioactive squids or some shit and they keep knocking our bikes off the sides.>Zen have zem apply ze squid repellant I told you to bring along, you fool!>Wait, you were SERIOUS about that? Shit, the boys thought you were joking!Poor Strauss. Can't find good evil science help anywhere.
>>28471054And this is why you make your own help.
>>28470699>we learnedhahaha nope/tg/ never learns
>>28471110Kharn is a tomato?
What is "that"?
>>28471289Either something awesome...Or something that will make us regret not using the nitro, among many, many other things.
