Twitter: @HeroRena>Last time on HERO QUEST!>After a visit from The Doctor, Rena was finally cured of the downsides of her Vampirism. With her newfound abilities she proceeded to completely defeat Cosplay Lass in combat! After her victory she decided to have a celebratory drink with her good friend Magical Girl Sparkle!>Meanwhile the evil Monster Matriarch and her husband have entered the city... What could they be planning?
>You are now Magical Girl Sparkle. You were simply recovering from a recent drinking party with another Hero, Rena, when your morpher started beeping. You pick it up and see something horrifying."What the..?">'Warning' the device reads '1 S-Rank Villain within the city. 1 A-Rank Villain is with them. 1 S-Rank Villain approaching the city.'What..?Why are they gathering..?
>>28801964>>Meanwhile the evil Monster Matriarch and her husband have entered the city... What could they be planning?They're obviously here to find out why their youngest zergling hasn't flipped out, gone nuts and has yet to find a compatible cell donor as per the terms of her Birth-Contract.They want to hear the pitter-patter splosh growl of tiny tentacles, damnit
>>28801980Aw crap. Do you know those guys?
>>28801980They must be planning something sinister! You should take precautionary measures.
>>28801980Who is the third villain? Monster Marauder?
>>28801980Who's that one at the bottom?MM++ and Azacthulutep are in the city to visit MM, right?
>>28802008It's probably just the Hobo King.
>>28801980>[Crisis Preparation Mode Engage]We need containment and clean-up crews activated ASAP.
>>28801980Aw shiieeetCheck them all.Is MM++ or the horror beyond the void the S-Rank?And who's that third guy?
>>28802022What if Monster Marauder is the Hobo king? Dun Dun Dun
>>28801980>why are they gathering?RENA IS BEHIND IT ALL
>>28801980Throw Rena at it. She tends to somehow bumble her way through messes like this.
>>28801980Well, MM+ flipped out yesterday. Must be about that.
>>28802053I just figured that Rena's drunk and will probably want to visit MM for some cooking.
>>28802053>RENA IS BEHIND IT ALLTHIS IS WHY YOU DON'T LET RENAS DRINK AND CALL, FOLKS
>>28802052I thought Maurauder was S-Rank?
>>28801980...Aw, shit, it's Monster Matriarch and her husband, isn't? Look, I can't be completely sure, but they're probably checking in on their kids. Unless they happen to do...I dunno...something destructive, just keep an eye on them. You're good, yeah, but these are top tier villains we're talking about here, try waiting for some back up....and maybe Anti-Hero. Dear god, don't let Anti-Hero be nearby, she'd probably make things worse than they need to be, somehow.
>>28802068A good point, everyone knows lasagna tastes better when drunk. not as big an improvement as kebabs/burgers/etc, but still better.
>>28801964>With her newfound abilities she proceeded to completely defeat Cosplay Lass in combat!Somehow less impressive than the vast majority of her previous victories, though.
>>28802097Man, kebabs with some cold beer are the best thing ever.We should get some. Can't fight villainy on an empty stomach.
>>28801980Quick! Drink more booze!
>>28801980Hey, MGS, what the hell were you drinking that it managed to have an effect on your iron constitution and magical regeneration?
>>28802092I think so, yeah. So the Monster family is having a big ol' family reunion because of what happened to MM+?Either way, we should call in an emergency and tell other people to stay away from these guys. Then we see who we have available to help us deal with them in case things go sour.
>>28801980it's probably just the MM family getting together. Something unusual must have happened with them.*cough*rena*cough*
Oh yes, I'm quite familiar with all of them...One of them is Monster Matriarch. Mother of the Monster Siblings and a powerful S-Rank Villain.The other is simply known as The Monster. He is the origin of the word monster itself. On his own he has little influence in the material plane but with someone like MM++ on his side... Because of this he's only A-Rank.The last one is the Monster Marauder. He is an incredibly unstable and dangerous villain. S-Rank and he earned that rank in one night. Straight from C to S...All of them are either in the city or getting close to it... Monster Master appears to be missing but... This would be FAR less of a problem if there were more S-Class Heroes around here!There's only one right now... -Him-.>Magical Girl Sparkle runs and bursts into Lewtenant Kernal's room.>He appears to be eating ramen.LK: "Sparkle. What brings you here? Do you want ramen?"MGS: "No, Kernal. I have something important to tell you."LK: "Sure thing."MGS: "The Monster Matriarch and Monster Marauder are-"LK: "Sparkle. Later one remind me not to get the shrimp flavored ramen. This stuff is pretty nasty. I'd rank it right below that hot and spicy kind.""Lewtenent, we-"LK: "So far the best stuff has been beef. Man that is good. Tastes like real beef.""Lewtenent, we need to-"LK: "Actually, I think the best so far was this sort of alfredo kind I had the other day. Private, get me more of that!">A man nods and runs out of the room.I can't in a word
>>28802229Actually, i'm a little surprised.One S-Rank is here, One S-Rank is approaching.One is A-Rank?But both parents turned up at the same time.So... Azacthulutep isn't a member of the Villian Association, I guess? I mean it kinda makes sense that an eldritch abomination wouldn't feel the need to register.
>>28802258Get Balloon man
>>28802258Bust out that military speak. Maybe that will make him listen
>>28802258Shout at him?If that doesn't work, just literally cover his mouth with something.
>>28802258>The other is simply known as The Monster. He is the origin of the word monster itself. On his own he has little influence in the material plane but with someone like MM++ on his side... Because of this he's only A-Rank.>>28802269oh, nvm. A-Rank, though. Still weird.
>>28802258Levitate his ass until he begins listening to you.>>28802300Not really. Think of it like this - his avatar on the material plane is level A. The guy himself would probably rip reality a new one if he appeared in all his glory.
>>28802258>I can't in a wordwrite it down what's happening and jam his face in the paper
>>28802258Clearly this information has to go up the proper chain of command. Divliver to a Sargent a message with the word "URGENT" in caps at the top, the subject line "Important Local Intelligence Update - Read Immediately!" and a summary of the information he needs to know.
>>28802322well, yeah. But I'm kinda surprised he's got any connections with the villain association at all.Like he gives a shit about what's happening on the material plane. Dude's got hopes and dreams to devour, y'know.
>>28802258This is a good idea. Do this.>>28802332
>>28802258take away his ramen.
>>28802322Like Shuma-Gorath?>>28802349He is married to one of the villains association members.
>>28802349The things Monsters do for their wives...
>>28802347Just punch him in his stupid goddamn face - again - Sparkle.It's such a pain you have to do this to get his attention every time. This is why you don't normally talk to him unless it's important
>>28802332This. Shove the HeroPager into his face.
>>28802378even so it doesnt seem like he'd settle for such a lousy ranking.Unless every time he went for the top ranking he accidently nudged the examiner into insanity resulting in the cancellation of the test or something
WE HEROQUEST NOW
>Magical Girl Sparkle snatches Lewtenent Kernal's ramen away and tosses it to the ground. She stomps on it for good measure."Dammit Lewtenent! For once in you fucking life listen to me! Just because I LOOK like a small girl does not mean you can just disregard what I have to say!"LK: "...""NOW, there are some very powerful villains nearby and they're all in their costumes. That means they could be planning something bad! Just ONE of them could destroy the entire city! THE ENTIRE CITY! I can't take them on alone and there's no other A-Ranks I would trust to help me! You're all I got! SO can you stop being so goddamn retarded for one goddamn second and help me check this out!?"
>>28802448LK: "Sparkle... Looks like I need to get some more ramen. Excuse me.">Lewtenent Kernal leaves the room.
>>28802468The ramen. KILL ALL THE RAMEN
>>28802468...no-one else around?
>>28802468Turn him into an adorable bunny. It's for his own good.
>>28802349Well, if he is the primordial monster, he probably has some stake in the material plane. After all, he's the guy behind dragons, giant space squids and who knows what else. If he didn't give a shit about the Prime Material, he wouldn't bother with establishing an identity as the origin of the word monster.He's probably a lower-ranking cosmic entity among his peers, and this is his way of getting more fame and respect. Still can't compete with Asmodeus, though. That guy's a dick.
>>28802468LK is useless. Destroy all ramen in a 30 mile radius at a later date.scrounge up some support, Chet maybe?
>>28802468Please tell me we can fuck him up now.
>>28802468>>28802484second. Kill the ramen. Kill all the ramen.
>>28802448>>28802468...Remind me how this man got to S-Rank again?
>>28802504the same way Rena nearly did, probably
>>28802468Take the ramen.
>>28802468Find another A rank.That moron is useless.
>>28802468Call Chet Manlystache. The only way to deal with LK is by proxy. By a proxy he will take seriosuly. Chet is such proxy.
>>28802504He has enough dakka.>>28802468What about Chet? If nothing else, organize the other lesser heroes to evacuate the city.
>>28802468Did this guy really take down MM+?
>>28802504Essay contest maybe?
>>28802468We might need to get Rena in on this actually. This guy is a useless chode, and she might be able to do some decent work now that she's got superpowers.Either that or go with the urgent military report idea, that one was fun.
>>28802493>AsmodeusPlease,. that dude is a useless wannabe demon.You're thinking of Azathoth.
>>28802468Check where Rena is at.
>>28802468Well it's easier for one person to be sneaky, anyway.Perhaps get Shadow-Man to help sneak you in?
>>28802548hahaha, no.This is so out of Rena's league. Let her stick to cleaning up the lower ranks for now.
>>28802468Find a time traveller version of yourself and team up.
Oh, he will suffer. Let's see how he enjoys it when everything he eats for the next week tastes like ash. HE WILL KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO LOOK DOWN UPON THE MOST POWERFUL MAGICAL GIRL IN HISTORY!NO ONE IGNORES MAGICAL GIRL SPARKLE!R: "Sparkle..? What's going on..? My head hurts..."
>>28802604>Find a time traveller version of yourself and team up.MGS: "Oh, god no. I hate that bitch"
>>28802555We don't talk about Azathoth.And Asmodeus has far better PR than our lovable mess of tentacles and eyes. You just know he's the obnoxious parent going around and claiming how his daughter and him are the best around.
>>28802609Busy right now Rena, your 'friend' just called in her extended family and is probably going to be destroying the city in the near future.
>>28802532>>28802593If Chet was available for that we'd be asking him along instead of talking to this asshole.
>>28802590But she does have a personal repertoire with the Family Monster. If any hero can run surveillance on those three to see what they're up to WITHOUT causing a fight to break out and destroy half the city, its Rena.
>>28802548"Mr President himself has sent orders for you! Dangerous Terrorists have just entered the city, you need fight them to protect America."
>>28802609TELL RENA EVERYTHINGWHAT COULD GO WRONG
>>28802609Just planning ramencide, nothing big. Go back to sleep.
>>28802609We need you help. The monster family is having a reunion.
>>28802609RENA QUICKHELP ME DESTROY ALL RAMEN
>>28802609It seems your friend's family came to visit her. Everything is probably going to go to hell.
>>28802636>The president has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?ftfy
>>28802609You know, this is probably how villains start.Let's tell Rena that some S-Class villains have entered the city and you were trying to enlist the help of this guy. That's accurate enough.
>>28802609Who the fuck did you call last night?
>>28802625>We don't talk about Azathoth.only because he's a useless inbred retard>>28802635>repertoireI think you mean rapporeand being a hero means not sending clueless noobs like Rena to go and spy on a family of eldritch horrors.That's what Shadow Man is for. Or would be if he was half as good as he likes to think "he" is.
>>288026091 - He's a Lewtenat? Become Captain Magic Girl Sparkles and order him to do what needs to be done. Pull Rank!2 - Tell Rena her girlfriend's parents and older brother are coming to town and while probably while the city off the fee of the Earth.
Wait, does Sparkle know that Rena is friends with MM? I don't remember her ever finding that out.
>>28802609MGS, hey MGS, perhaps you should take up this issue with your boss? You know, he has an office at Hero Association, the one where Rena almost visited once when she wanted to go down in ranks.
>>28802609you were trying to wrangle up a posse but LK has ramen for brains and should beaten to death with a sack of squirrels.Rena, evacuate the city. the Monster family is having a reunion!
>>28802684oh, oh, oh.Rena.She kind of looks like a dude. Get her a fake stache and you could use her as a proxy to get Lew's attention!
>>28802609Nothing, nothing at all. Go sleep off your hangover.
>>28802680Yep, meant rapport. You get what I mean, though.
>>28802700What if her voice is squeaky?
>>28802700use rena's looks-like-a-boy powers to get lewtenant's attention.CAPTAIN rena!
>>28802700Is he Lewtenand or Lewdenant? Maybe that's the way to get his attention... have Rena wear a bikini!
>>28802609"Your girlfriend's having a family reunion. The city may not survive it."
>>28802691Yes, she does.>>28802609Calm down, MGS, shit. We have a city to save, there's no time for ramen.Besides, after you're done with heroics, you can curse the Lewtenant so that all his ramen tastes like pubes.
>>28802744Alright, just making sure.
>>28802744>curse him so all his ramen tastes like pubes>*omnomnom*>hey>this is SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER than my ramen was yesterday!>Must be a new recipe.
>>28802609If the A ranks are useless turn to the B's!I don't how many B's it would take to stop Monster family but I know how many we're willing to use....
>>28802693That would be unwise.>>28802726>>28802700....."Rena, come here. I need your help with something."R: "What..?""I'm going to dress you up and put a fake mustache on you. Then you're going to go and pretend to be a... General or whatever. You need to tell Lewtenent Kernal that the president is under attack and we need his help. Can you do this?"R: "... What?"
>>28802609REMOVE RAMEN. Remove ramen. Remove ramen from the premises.
>>28802743Man, I didn't know any bearded dudes with squeaky voices even in puberty.Then again this guy isn't the sharpest knife...
>>28802739That sounds like a terrible idea for everybody involved.
>>28802774CAN. YOU. DO. THIS. RENA?
>>28802774Slap Rena awake through your communicator
>>28802774"Come on Rena, I need you to do this. You're the only one who looks manish enough."
>>28802774Just put this stuff on and follow MGS's lead!
>>28802774Give her a very impressive hat, that's the quickest way to show authority in the military. Trust me, I'm an expert in these things. Also, large handle bar mustaches, those are critical.
>>28802803Naw, Sparkle is smoother than that.
>>28802774DAMN IT RENA THERE IS NO TIME THE WORLD IS AT STAKE HERE
>>28802774use your powers! Mustache her up! Tell her to tell LK the Monster Family is in town and that Magical Girl Sparkle is in charge of the operation or HE'LL BE COURT MARTIALED!
>>28802774"Look, your girlfriends family is coming into town and their all horrible abominations that may destroy the city. Kernal is the only Hero here that can help me make sure they don't pull anything."
>>28802774I'm starting to think the Boss of the Hero Assoc. has absolutely no clue about anything. The least about what is actually happening in the cityGENERAL RENA, YOU HAVE YOUR ORDERS. NOW GET LEWTENANT KERNAL IN LINE.
>>28802803>"Come on Rena, I need you to do this. You're the only one who looks manish enough.""And I mean that in a good way. Like Anna Gunn. Or Ted Levine."
>>28802774It's cool, Rena. This is a great idea.If she disagrees, feed her more drink.
>>28802803You mean "manly yet cute enough". We don't want to damage her ego.
>>28802774Is this normal for LK? Do you know how he acts most of the time? Because I think there's something wrong here. He acknowledged your presence and then immediately went back to talking about ramen; if he was actually oblivious, he would have just ignored you.
>>28802852We probably should've said something how there's a new ban on guns in the city and the monsters are behind it.
>>28802774She's good to go.
>>28802839SQUAD MORALE RESTORED.
>>28802886yeah, that's actually pretty "on-the-ball" by Rena standards.
>>28802468MGS is so cute when she's angry.
>>28802904>>28802886this is the perfect plan and we should go ahead with it
>>28802852I don't know what's his deal. If he didn't have the arsenal of an entire army hidden in his pocket I would dismiss him as a -complete- idiot. But he knows exactly how to use that stuff.>>28802887Agreed."Come here Rena, you need to do this or your girlfriend's family is going to end us all."R: "My what..? Hey, what are you doing!? That's my clothes! Stooooooop!"----------------------------------------------------------R: "Sparkle... Why?""This is the only way. Now, go tell him exactly what I said.">Rena stumbles off and goes up to the Lewtenent.R: "Uhm... Magical Girl Sparkle said that to tell you the president is in trouble and... There's ninjas?"No! She's messing everything up!This was a terrible idea!
>>28802943Damnit rena that's not what I said at all!Introduce yourself as a -GENERAL!-
>>28802943Can we mind control Lieutenant or something?
>>28802943>No! She's messing everything up!>This was a terrible idea!Have a little faith.Claims of ninjas are exactly what this situation needs.Everyone knows you need to have ninjas as enemies if you're going to be a bad enough dude to rescure the president.
>>28802943It was either this, destroying all the ramen in town, or enlisting Anti-Hero's help. And FUCK. THAT. NOISE.
>>28802943just waitit'll work somehowdon't expect sense to work with lewtenant kernal
>>28802943She looks like Johnny Bravo with a mustache.Sparkle, you've no idea what a general looks like, do you?
>>28802943Butt in and tell Lewtenant that General McMurder here just came back from an attack on the Monster family, and is still a bit shocked from the trauma of losing his unit.He desperately needs help to fight back the monster menace!
>>28802943We can work with this! The MM family are kind of like Ninjas right? And both the president and the city are important, so they're practically the same thing. As is kidnapping and destroying really, both quite illegal indeed. Yes, we can work with this.
>>28802943Eh, Rena tends to be oddly good at convincing people to do things. Turn things over to her and see what happens.
>>28802943GENERAL! I KNOW THIS NEWS IS DIRE BUT YOU ARE A LEADER wink wink YOU MUST STAY CALM, THE SOLDIERS WILL PANIC IF YOU PANICthe monster family is town the city is in danger don't screw this up Rena I'll buy the drinks tonight if you can get this lunkhead to listen to me
>>28802943ARE YOU BAD ENOUGH DUDE TO RESCUE THE PRESIDENT, LEWTENANT KERNAL!?
>>28802787I do. Theres this one guy I know with a big bushy beard and the softest, most womanly voice Ive ever heard from a man.
>>28802943Do you have any spell that lets you talk through someone?
>>28803005Is it as soft as his beard?
>>28802943holy shit, it's Henry Fonzarelli's illegitimate lovechild.eyyyyyy
>>28802986>Hey there, Monster Momma
>>28802986This... This isn't what a General looks like, is it?I didn't study much about military.>>28802988>Magical Girl Sparkle quickly approaches the two of them and places her hand on Rena's shoulder."Lewtenent! Forgive General McMurder here. He just came back from dealing with the evil Monster family and is still a bit shocked. I'm sure you know what he must have gone through."LK: "Indeed I do, tiny magical girl! Yes, it was not long ago that I myself braved the battlefield and took down Monster Master! It is okay, General! Let your loyal soldiers fight for you!""That is good. Uhm... He is saying that he is thankful for this and for you to be on standby in the city in case they attack... The president. With ninjas."LK: "The president!?""Yes. Are you a bad enough dude to save the president?"LK: "General McMurder, I am the baddest 'dude' in the entire army force! I will assist you in any way I can!">The Kernal salutes.Alright, I think we finally got him to work with us.R: "I don't feel comfortable wearing this..."
>>28803155Suck it up Rena, it's for the safety of the city. They will all appreciate your sacrifice.Also that pompadour looks bitching.
>>28803155>"I don't feel comfortable wearing this..."Really? Aside from the hair and tache, it actually looks pretty good.
>>28803140lol>>28803155"You can change out of it now. Your job is done. You may want to stay in the heros association for a while though."Go see what all des villains be up to.
>>28803155The General will retire to his quarters. And he assigned us as his replacement.If we need him, we'll call for him.In the meantime, we'll begin planning.
>>28803155Find more A and S rank heros now Sparkle
>>28803155Is it me or does MGS get progressively cuter as things go?
>>28803155Rena, the sacrifices you make for the city are noble and honorable.
>>28802943[transfer consciousness to Rena]At attention Lewtenat Kernal! I have an important mission for you.We've received word that some extremely high-powered supervillains are approaching the city. You are being assigned to monitor their activities and stop them if they intend to cause trouble. Your first priority is to minimize collateral damage and casualties; do not engage the enemy unless a threat is confirmed.This mission is codenamed Operation Family Picnic. The officer in charge of this operation is Magical Girl Sparkle; you are to follow her orders. Is that understood?
>>28803155Tell her that she probably just saved the city, and that you'll totally slip her a share of the profits later. She totally earned it by allowing us to get that idiot to listen without destroying all of the ramen in the world.Also, maybe have her call MM again to see if she can find out any intel.
>>28803212That's the one, thanks.
>>28803155"I think it suits you Rena. I really... ahem... I really do!"Find more heroes for the cause, a single A-class won't be enough if you have to deal with tho S-classes at the same time.
>>28803155You're girlfriend's parents are in town, guess they wanna BBQ the city.just hide out here, the basement till its all over. Clean it up or something. I think there might be an air hockey table down there.....
>>28803155Straighten that spine (wo)man. Stand up straight and tall. Put your back into it. Stiff upper lip. etc, etc.Pretend like you're someone who gives a crap.
>>28803155Maaybe you're overreactingMaybe they're just here for a family lunchMaybe it'll all be fine
>>28803265There's Monster Marauder in thereShit's real
>>28803265Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
>>28803253Give 'em blood an' vinegar, wot wot! By the left and right, young buck, forward!
>>28803182>>28803226Its probably not a good idea to tell a girl she makes a good looking guy.Just sayin.
>>28803155I can't wait until MM meets ManRena
>>28803289This. The others are bad news, but are apparently manageable. This guy's nuts.And has a neckbeard.
>>28803342It's not a million miles away from what she usually chooses to wear, though.
>>28803342Rena would love any compliment she gets.
>>28803348does she like her "men" in uniform?
>>28802258>not liking Chili flavor, what a fucking faggot
>>28803354S-Rank isn't "manageable". Its "extinction level event if they get pissed off enough".
>>28803265Impossible.>>28803226"It... It suits you Rena. Maybe not the mustache and hair but... Look, just hide in the basement for a while. The S-Class Heroes have to deal with this. There's some games down there. Okay?"R: "Okay...""Great. I'll call you if we need anything.">She pats Rena's back and lets her go to the basement.Alright... Let's review the list of potential help...For A-Class we have Iced-T, Ignis (though he and Iced-T can't work together), Chet Manlystache, and Velocity Raptor...I have a few S-Class I can call on but none of them really like each other. There's Prince, Red Hammer, and Madam Hourglass.I really need to stress that they generally can't stand one another and barely tolerate me.
>>28803407Velocity RaptorChet ManlystacheRed Hammer
>>28803407"I need you to call your girlfriend and find out why her brother and parents are here.We can't hope to counter them if we don't know what they're after."
>>28803407Chet Manlystache and Velocity Raptor
>>28803407>I really need to stress that they generally can't stand one another and barely tolerate me.Just trick them all into thinking it's their idea and you should be golden.
>>28803407Iced-T, Chet and Prince.
>>28803407>PrinceCall on Prince, I like his name.Also call Iced-T, Chet and Velocity as reinforcement.
>>28803407Pick whichever S-Class is least likely to fuck things up, and get them. Ten collect all the A-Class ones except Iced-T (because Ignis looks cuter).
>>28803407Madam Hourglass, Chet, V-Raptor, and Iced-T.
>>28803407>. There's Prince, Red Hammer, and Madam Hourglass.what do they do?Is Hourglass time control?if so her
>>28803407Have the S-Class patrol different city sections maybe?
>>28803453Or split them up. One can help us with defense, the other is on evacuation duty.
>>28803407We can use Velocity Raptor to scout, Iced-T to restrain them, and Chet for being...manly I guess?What are the S class hero's powers? Madam Hourglass might be useful if she can control time.
>>28803407Get the S-class person with the smallest ego and is the best team player. So long as they can keep the potential stakes in mind, that should keep them from spazzing out.Chet and Velocityraptor seem like some good choices too.
>>28803407what about BALLOOOON MAN
>>28803407Call Raptor. He is a chill dude. He is a FREAKIN DINOSAUR.
>>28803445Pair up Chet with Iced-T and Velocity Raptor with Ignis.Tell all the A-Rank heroes that you have it covered and TOTALLY don't need their assistance and will be actively offended if they turn up and try and steal your fun/glory/paycheck/whatever they most like about fighting villians
>>28803407WE NEED ICED-Toh my god do we need Iced-T
>>28803407Try gettin Chet and the Raptor for starters, and aither Iced-T or Ignis whichever you can get hold of first...and maybe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkDm2SXDsPc
>>28803496>Tell all the A-Rank heroesI mean S-Rank, obviously
>>28803486This. Balloons solve everything.
>>28803407Who has the most experience with the Monsters besides Rena?
>>28803486Balloon man doesn't have the time to sit around waiting for crises like this, anon. He's probably rolling in bitches after saving a shopping center from, I dunno, nudist man or something.
>>28803496Sparkle is totally the glue that stops the hero community from killing itself when it tries to do anything
>>28803545That is when people actually listen to herYou know how in settings like this everybody refuses to listen to the only sane (wo)man until the last minute?
>>28803539Don't you mean Caltrop Man, his archrival?
>>28803571Sure, I suppose so.Their forbidden love would be the most dangerous.
Writing/drawing the update now
>>28803569Sparkle is the only one self-aware enough to get them all to work together despite themselves, via underhanded manipulation for the greater good.Unfortunately she's also self aware enough to realise how easy it is to exploit the phrase "for the greater good" for selfish reasons and she hates herself for doing it.
>>28803596Most dangerous, you say?
>>28803571How fucking sadistic does a person need to be in order to come up with something like this?
>>28803737Alignment: Chaotic evil
Does monster family count as monsters? Or are they just humans controlling monsters? Is MM++ considered a monster? If so, since all monsters come from The Monster she should also come from him, which would mean she is his daughter. This would mean The Monster married his daughter and had three kids from her. Maybe this is how he is, since he is immortal he keeps marrying his offspring and keep producing powerful monsters?We should as these questions next time we are in MM's head.
>>28803737It seems like a devil's combo, but I'm pretty sure that the drawing pin would blunt the effectiveness of the Lego.
>>28803747>We should as these questions next time we are in MM's head.I cracked up at this.
>>28803747pretty sure the Dad is something straight out of Lovecraft
>>28803768Could be worse.
>>28803779The funny thing is I bet he's the chill parent.
>>28803779> MFW the big daddy is a reasonable gentleman
I like the idea of sending them all to different parts. I'll have Prince go and take care of the northern chunk while Red Hammer can watch over the south. Right now I'll use... Ignis and Chet on my team along with Madam Hourglass. Ignis is amazing with fire and Chet... Is Chet.Madam Hourglass has limited control over time. She earned that Rank 2.---------------------------------------------------------->Magical Girl Sparkle's team assembles.IG: "I didn't expect to be called upon by a S-Class. It is a honor, Miss Sparkle."CM: "What's the danger!? Is it a S-Class Villain!?"MH: "Hey, Sparkle~ Long time no see. If there's anything you need me to do just ask."In this room are some of the most powerful people on the planet.I need a game plan on how to deal with Monster Marauder first. He's fast approaching the city and he could easily take me down if he wished.
>>28803813Does he have a ramen-style weakness we could exploit?Maybe a fondness for giant yarn balls?
>>28803813Use your monster summoning power Sparkle.
>>28803813Recon first, we need to know what the Monster fam is up to.Rena is kinda chummy with them... maybe send her in wearing a wire. Just so we know if evacuation of the city will be necessary
>>28803813We should do the diplomatic approach first. I vote that Madam hourglass appraoches him and asks his business, since she can rewind and run away if he attacks, of course with everyone nearby to helpIf the other two are parents, they're probably reasonably stable. He's the one who's unpredictableONLY ONE PERSON VOTED FOR IGNIS. WHERE IS MY ICED-T
>>28803813What do we know about Marauder? What are his strongest points, what are his weaknesses?
>>28803813Have Rena call her girlfriend to ask why her brother and parents are in town and what they want.It's better than nothing, and doesn't require you throw anybody into the viper pit.
>>28803833I can agree with this part, as well as sending Velocity Raptor to keep an eye on Monster Marauder's approach.As for the others, use Ignis to corral Monster Marauder and keep him pinned, Madame Hourglass to freeze him, then Chet and MGS can pin and capture him.
>>28803813Recon first. The sooner we find Marauder, the more lives we can save.Maybe MH and Iced-T can hold him in place long enough for us to teleport him somewhere far away?
>>28803813You have to intercept him before he arrives. Go out with the others and beat him away!
>>28803813Hey Sparkle, can Madam Hourglass bend time such that you can shout your attacks instantly? So the villain doesn't have time to react?
>>28803900Nah, man, direct confrontation will get us killed. We need to trick this bastard somehow. We're smarter and cuter than he is.
>>28803900They can't hope to beat him without more S-Ranks. Infact even with more S-Ranks the whole thing is still dicey. The best they can do is delay or redirect him.
>>28803942Operation "Blazing Saddles" is go.We must construct a decoy town.
>>28803942So use Ignis to act as fire support (hurr), and create walls of flames to prevent him from moving towards the city while we attack him. Chet's a good brawler, and we can use MH to pull us out of sticky situations.
>>28803833Denied. We're trying to keep her out of harm's way (along with any possible promotions).As for Marauder...hrm...do we happen to have the reincarnation of Zhuge Liung in the audience here? Sun Tzu? Any sort of tactician?
>>28803831Never.>>28803856She actually can't rewind time too much. Her powers are limited to pausing time, multiplying herself, and even aging a few things.>>28803857His strongest point is that is pretty fucking strong. The only weakness we have on him is that whatever monster he's taken the form of forces him to share that weakness. However, he has long since abandoned using monsters that are common. Whatever he's been changing into lately is not from this world.>>28803921That is possible if we worked together.>>28803868Another possible idea.>>28803859>>28803833>>28803865Alright, we'll send Rena in to see what the parents and Maestro are up to while Velocity Raptor and Iced-T watch Marauder from afar.Let's just hope Rena can do this....=================================<You are now Rena.>>Rena knocks on the door to her friends home.

>>28804259oh, god. Lets hope not. She'd have to burn it.

Do you guys think Bridgette's Father teaches Non-Euclidean Geometry?
>>28804159I have a feeling that this is going to get pretty bad pretty soon. Just in case something predictably bad happens, what monster forms does Marauder favor? We'll need a plan if he does something stupid.
Way to go guys, we couldn't go half a post without putting her into a coma.

>>28804733>How do you ruin a family get-together before it starts?Apparently coming out of the closet isn't going to do it.
>>28804709Well, you're in a tough spot, Bridgette. Ain't going to lie. Stopping your brother is not only aiding Heroes but going against your family. I'd say focus on getting Rena up and just politely ignore whatever espionage she is up to. Maybe "accidently" get her the info she needs.

>>28804709Yes, yes she did, more or less. Well, at least to make sure your ma and pa weren't up to anything. She wasn't really informed of your brother, but the Association suspected. Call the Heros (make up some excuse like going out for some fresh air) and give them a heads up. If they somehow find out you're a villain, just tell them that you "can't rule the city/state/world/whatever if it's destroyed", that should be somewhat viable.
>>28804783Isn't that Rena's ex?
>>28804767>Apparently coming out of the closet isn't going to do it.Well no shit, Sherlock, when your mom marries the primordial concept of Monster, she is probably pretty liberal when it comes to love.
>>28804709I don't think that's why Rena came over, unless she's hiding some very good deductive reasoning inside that empty head.
>>28804805Which automatically means grade A nutter. Damn.
>>28804709Does Rena have phone with her? Call someone she knows in association and try make sense out of this mess.
>>28804767Maybe if we say that we're quitting being a villain?Nah, that'd break their hearts. We need a distraction, though. Maybe get dad on the side, ask him to help us get Rena out while we search her stuff and so on. After embarrassing us in front of her, he owes us one, and he wouldn't like it if we lose our friend and rival, now would he?
>>28804811You'd think, but there's no accounting for hypocracy.

>>28804853I dunno. MM+ seems pretty high strung, if not strung out about that specifically.The main thing is we need a way to relocate the parents and brother.
>>28804866He's the evil variant of Chet and Tuxedo Mask, but with a scarf.
>>28804709Ask your mom to make sure that he doesn't do anything stupid?You know how it is with these insane supervillain types. They won't listen to anybody, but if their parents scowl at them they'll curl up in a ball. Or murder everything in a ten mile radius.50/50 odds are good, right?
Yes! Grab her phone, call her last called number and talk to the heros
>>28804866Shadow Man once claimed the dark stranger had the same skills he did, but better.When DS actually showed up though, he was like all super strong and shit. His outfit was white and shiny, and he did like no hiding.So not sure what the connection is. Maybe Shadow Man actually doesn't do shit.
>>28804825>Maybe if we say that we're quitting being a villain?>Nah, that'd break their hearts.Honestly, I think it'd probably break Bridgette's heart the most.She really loves being a villain.
>>28804866Kind of a dick, wears a faggy scarf, strong enough to lift buildings.
>>28804866Apparently he was to Rena too. Didn't recognize the guy and broke up with him by basically forgetting that he existed.
>>28804881See, MM+ had taken the Ara and twisted into a motherly sort of sadism. She was never judgmental of Rena, just fucking crazy.
>>28804752>Can Dad turn into the monster of loneliness or something and lock him down? The monster of crippling depression? Something?
>>28804866He didnt even lift the building, he just caught it when Renas ex tossed it.
>>28804909Yeah, you're right. And Bridgette's too cute for us to break her heart.Okay, new plan. Does our room have a back window or something we can sneak out of?
Well, I remember the 'being a dick' parts. Just, nothing about his looks/powers.He was just a shabby Shadow Man all along, huh...
>>28804842It's impossible to argue with the woman. She'll just say 'Oh, but I want the whole family together blah blah blah.'Let's see if Rena's cell is on her...>Bridgette excuses herself from the living room and returns to Rena. She's still in a coma.Alright, let's see... It's not in her sweater pocket... Perhaps her back pockets? Let me check........................................Nope, not there. Ah, here. In the front pocket. Should've checked there first. Silly me.>There are a few missed calls on it. Bridgette redials that number. The owner of the girliest voice ever picks up.MGS: "Hello? Rena? Are you there?""Uh..."MGS: "Who is this..? Monster Matriarch!?""No this is Monster Maestro..."MGS: "You... What did you do to Rena!?""She's fine! I mean, mostly. She's in a coma right now but she'll get better."MGS: "What!?"
>>28804965"He's not coming anywhere near my apartment - no, he's not coming anywhere near my CITY until I know he can control himself.If you want to have a family gathering we're going to do it OUTSIDE of town. THAT'S my condition for meeting him.Besides, if we met in town then heroes will crash it and that would be distracting. All we need is somebody stepping in the potato salad while they rant about love and peace."
>>28804955hmm, flight. that's definately an option.Just, run the fuck away. Best option so far.
>>28804965She just looked at dad and went into a coma, it happens all the time. She should be fine. Hopefully.
>>28804965My father kinda damaged her soul by existing near her.
>>28804965She saw my dad and things just happened. ANYWAY, Monster Master is coming here soon, and he's fucking insane, can you guys take him out or something? I mean, I'm his sister and even I don't want him here.
>>28804965"She saw my dad. Sanity loss on sight. It's temporary.Look, Maurauder is coming, and I don't know what to do."
>>28804965Rena saw my dad when he opened the door for her. I'm going to get a pair of sunglasses for her.
>>28804965Explain what happened, MGS is reasonable.
>>28804965She kinda saw my dad and the death of all hope and beauty in the universe and kinda fell over. I'm taking care of her right now.Also, my brother is coming towards town. I'm pretty sure everybody's going to die if he does, so you had better do something quick. I'll help if I can.
>>28804965"Never mind that. Um, there's some trouble. My brother is coming to town."
>>28804965Better talk fast, and to the point, kid. She seems to have a bit of a soft spot for Rena.
>>28804965Look she came to my house and Dad opened the door. She could be fine, eventually. Look, apparently mom's organizing a full family reunion at my place I'm just going to make sure no one kills my nemesis but me, understand? Anything you do or not is on you.
>>28804965"She ran into my dad, the family's here for Thanksgiving or something. Happy Holidays, by the way."Okay, can Hourglass Lady stop time for long enough that we can sneak Rena out?Dad will probably be unaffected by it, but we can get him aboard the "save my friend" train with some puppy eyes.
>>28804965"It was my dad. He answered the door, and Rena's mind broke when she saw him. She'll be okay, this isn't the first time this has happened.""Listen, Marauder is headed towards my apartment for a family gathering. Do you know any out-of-the-way spots where we could relocate it without endangering too many people?"
>>28804866Both go unnoticed.Shadow Man by not being seen.Whatshisname by being totally unmemorable.
>>28804965Dad's a real jerk sometimes. She should wake up in an hour. Hopefully before big brother gets here for our reunion; I don't want her in any more danger than normal.Mind, if she doesn't, there will be WORDS.>but with more tsuntsun than this
>>28804965"My father is a mind bending monstrosity, remember? She'll be fine in an hour.Listen, Mom invited my bother over for some reason. I think she can keep him under control but if not THEN you can swoop in. The rest of us aren't planning attacks or anything so chill out unless things get bad."
>>28804965Dad answered the front door before I could.He's kind of a non-euclidean eldritch horror.She'll be fine. Assuming my brother doesn't turn up here and kill everyone and everything that isn't immortal.You're doing something about that, right?
>>28804977Accept Rena is still a summonable "monster" right? I'm sure we'll be able to keep the family from yanking her (and us) back to the party, right?
>>28805061I'm pretty sure part of our operation was to not be subject as a monster
>>28804965We can't really get the whole family together now. MM+ is still off doing her soul-searching thing, and we can't exactly interrupt her.
>>28805061I don't think so.(note to self: Investigate later which "half" of Rena is technically still a monster)
>>28805061Hey, yea! Rena may not be monstery enough for you to control her, but you MIGHT still be able to summon her!Test it!
>>28805061Where do our summoned monsters come from, anyway? Have you ever asked one?
>>28804965>Perhaps her back pockets? Let me check...>.....................................>Nope, not there. Ah, here. In the front pocket. Should've checked there first. Silly me.Ha!
>>28805091What if it's the inner half?
>>28805091>only summon half of RenaI cant see this not going terribly.
>>28805101And lo, Rena entered a Frenzy, and ripped and teared through the neighborhood. Monster Marauder fell in love that day as she attempted to gouge out his eyes with her teeth.
>>28805125of course if it's the bottom half that will be officially the Best Day Ever
"Look, my dad opened the door when she came by and I'm sure you know what he looks like. Her mind kinda snapped. she should be fine but right now we have bigger problems. My brother is coming to the city. My mom invited him over for some kind of eldritch family get together"MGS: "So we heard. Listen, you are Rena's friend, right?""I... I'm her arch-nemesis, if that's what you mean. I won't allow anything bad to happen to her unless I'm the one causing it."MGS: "Good enough. Do you think it's possible you can have the meeting held elsewhere?""It's... It's possible. If I use my charms, I guess."MGS: "Alright. We're going to hold MMA back as long as we can while you do this. I'm not sure how long we can though so if you want to keep Rena safe you need to let him know that the meeting is... A few miles away. In the desert.""I'll try my best."MGS: "Keep this phone on you in case I need to call back.">She hangs up.Alright... This is for Rena.=====================================<You are now Magical Girl Sparkle.>>Velocity Raptor limps in front of Magical Girl Sparkle.VR: "Iced-T... Iced-T is critically wounded... I barely made it out alive... Lost connection with the southern team... He's here, Sparkle..."...Fuck.
>>28805212Oh god oh jesus I don't know what to tell you to do
>>28805212can we just likeMOVE the city to the desertSo when he rampages in the city it isn't here?
>>28805212It's time for the shitty work you always have to do. Go with ~Kyun!~ MGS.
>>28805212>MMAfucking knew itOkay Sparkle, assemble the heros and ambush him in the desert! Use your summons!
>>28805212ShiiieeeeeetHe can take you out ez pz rite?In that case, have all the other heroes converge on him, and use ranged attacks or something.
>>28805212You can destroy cities with your power, right?Hit him with a love-nuke. Make him too delusional on seratonin to know what the fuck is going on.
>>28805212Sparkle Saviour mode activate!
>>28805239plan "blazing saddles" is go again!
>>28805212Get teams to kite him, use ranged powers from multiple sides, keep your distance, keep him distracted.Snap picture of what he looks like and have someone look up what is it and what are it's weaknesses.
>>28805212Were you able to analyze his abilities or attack patterns, or identify his objective?Our first priority is to get the wounded heroes treated, and possibly distract MMA. Telling him about the family picnic might change his mind.
>>28805212go for the big gunsGlass the desert over if you have to.You are magical girl SparkleTHE STRONGEST THERE IS
>>28805212We need to lure him out of the city and hit him with everyone at the same time.
>>28805212Timestop his ass, then freeze him solid. The sudden temperature change when time resumes will be enough to knock him out for some time.Alternatively, time powers on him and a grenade going his way, Slow him down, fasten the bomb up, and watch a relativistic bomb blow up in his face.
>>28805254>>28805308We're holding him off so he can be informed to go to the desert.
>>28805308She tried that before, once.There's a reason she's got a robot arm now.
Is MMA an Otaku?will Pantsu distract him?
>>28805212I assume that whatever he's turned into is too powerful to fight head-on, even with all of us together. Our best option, if we absolutely must fight, is to provoke a form change. While he's in human form, Madam Hourglass can freeze him for an instant, which should give us an opening.Even so, it's best to avoid fighting or engaging him if at all possible. Can you summon anything to act as a decoy? If he's as crazy as we've heard, it shouldn't be hard to distract him.
>>28805369Nah, MMA must me a mma fan or a hipster, if we go by his picture.
Working on the next update
>>28805308>THE STRONGEST THERE ISBecause she's the only one left.
>>28805386hmmmm..speak highly of Brock Lesnar and Kimbo Sliceor just say pro wrestling is betterMacho Man Randy Savage could beat all of them
>>28805416Because she slayed the thing that was eating magical girls and consumed it's power.
So guys, what's the deadliest monster ever?the things from Elfen Lied would be hard to deal withThere's probably a million and a half vidya monsters like Sin
>>28805461Claws and Spikes aren't all that descriptive. Could be anything.
>>28805461 it's MAN!
>>28805482it doesn't even really have to be all that tough.It just needs to be something that doesn't have a naturally occuring weakness on Earth.
>>28805482I think we can conclude that he is restricted to Euclidean geometry at least>>28805495fuck off
>>28805499I know what to say to him!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-Y-ua3WBi4
>>28805499Not really, he said how he can't pronounce its name, so it might as well be something Lovecraftian.Claws and spikes... Could be anything - really. From a tyranid to something from D&D to a goddamn hedgehog.
>>28805568and I forgot that Euclidean Geometry doesn't exist since mass warps space anyways, which is why gravitational lensing is a thingThat's right, nothing around you is Euclidean, it merely approximates it
>>28805677So, what you're saying is that something truly euclidean would be unnatural and abhorrent?
So I'm confused. Are we allowed to bring in meta knowledge since we're traveling voices over an actual character?Like if we fought Cosplay Lass again and she was using some anime character with a weakness we know of could we inform Rena of it even though she's a normalfag?
>>28805713not really, we'd be cool with it.The biggest problem would be the papercuts. Or the fusion explosions. Depending on how real physics parses euclidian shapes when they interact.
Alright... We're going to try and just hold him back as long as we can. I may need to go into my Ultimate Form."Let's get magical.">Sparkle changes into her true form. With this she can unleash all of her mahou shoujo power in an instant. Madam Hourglass, Ignis, and Chet all go with her to try and take on the Monster Marauder. They spot him on the outskirts of town, studying a map clutched in his hands."... Now!">From afar they all unleash their most deadly attacks. Madam Hourglass freezes Monster Marauder and speeds up Magical Girl Sparkle's attacks, allowing her to use her greatest powers at speeds that would normally be impossible. Ignis unleashes a meteor upon Monster Marauder, and Chet Manlystach focuses all his energy into his fist. He punches towards Monster Marauder and the shockwave from it slams into him.>They continue their assault for a full minute until all of them are left panting and tired.>The smoke clears.>Monster Marauder is still standing. There doesn't appear to be a scratch on him.>He cracks his neck and begins to walk towards Magical Girl Sparkle.
>>28805713I'm saying that Euclidean and non-euclidean can't be differentiated well by us since we only see in straight lines and we don't lose sanity when we see proof of bent space. Modern physics proved it all to be a big farce sadly
>>28805787This guys is...inhuman!
>>28805787>>He cracks his neck and begins to walk towards Magical Girl Sparkle.Throw food at him?
>>28805787"That's uh.... how we say hello around here."Then fucking cheese it.
>>28805787Hit on himroll to seduce
>>28805787shame that he's our foil, if we do summon our final trump, he can copy itGot any illusions?
>>28805787TRY NOT TO PANIC
>>28805787"Have a message for you. The family reunion is THAT way! In the desert!"
>>28805787Oh fuck. Um, have Ignis throw up some firewalls to block the way towards the city, and pivot ourselves and Chet back out towards the dessert.MH should hang back for the moment and try to slow MMA to a crawl if he launches an attack.
>>28805787fuuuuck, villains OP.Teleport him into the sun or something.
>>28805787SEND HIM INTO SPACEIT WORKED ON CARS
>>28805787Okay, what the hell is that thing. It looks like the unholy offspring of an orc, a Johj and Shirou once he goes full blade-mode.>>28805788It gets weirder if you consider the holographic principle to be a thing. Then all the observable universe and everything in it can be put down on a 2D plane. Modern physics is weird, yo.
>>28805787Well if he's following, we can lead him away from the city
>>28805787Alright we got his attention!Kite him away from the city!
>>28805787try something so stupid it can't NOT work!hit hm with a friendship beam instead of an attack!
And this is when we find out that MMA is actually a huge otaku nerd with a crush on MGS because of all the animes he's watched
>>28805787quick, lure him away from the city!
>>28805787I knew attacking him was a bad idea. Do you have any idea what that thing is?Anyway, I think we can try to talk to him now. Maybe call Maestro on the phone, and have her talk to him. That might distract him.
>>28805788>can't be differentiated wellthat's the nub.It may not be easy to differentiate, but it's possible.Think the uncanny valley effect. Or 2D sprites in 3D videogames.It looks sort of right, but it doesn't react right as you observe it. Subtly, perhaps, but it's there and it leaves you unnerved.
>>28805787What the christTeleport him into the sun
>>28805787Retreat away from the city, lure him towards desert if possible.
>>28805787Ok a classic "direct damage does nothing" villain then. There's ways to deal with that, on e woulb be immobilization via levitation.
>>28805884>a crush on MGSquite possibly a literal one.
>>28805905If we are to lure him, we have to get his attention first.We didn't expect these attacks to kill him, just bait him.>this is a bait.jpg
>>28805946unless he has "immune to anything" as a power
>>28804965>Bridget grabs Renas tits and ass before checking the most likely place for a cellphone.
Okay, can't kill him.Need to just hold him back."Retreat!">The all fall back while still firing their attacks at him. They already had the lead but the man quickly closes the gap.>>28805932As much as I'd love to the most I could do is teleport him maybe a mile or two up. And last time anyone tried that he just crashed into the world and destroyed a lot of things.I can try to->She lets out a gasp as Monster Marauder suddenly appears in front of her. He simply jumped and closed the distance in one leap.>Madam Hourglass has him frozen in time.MH: "I... I can't hold him for long..."
>>28805982blast his eye out? piss him off enough that you can start running away via teleport and get him to the desert
>>28805982Teleport him two miles into the ground then.
what is he, some kind of black crystal embedded orc? I don't know what weakness that might have...
>>28805982"Your family is dissapointed in you. Please, regain your senses so you can hold your mother again."
Rolled 13>>28805982Rolling a Knowledge: Planes check.What monster is he?
>>28805982INTO SPACE! If it worked for Ultimate Cars, it'll work for this guy!
>>28806015What if hes a Grue
>>28805982Teleport him a mile towards the dessert, we desperately need to get him away from the city, either that or draw him towards us and teleport away in hops.
>>288060232 miles is only 10,000 feet. Not even modern airplane cruising altitude.
>>28806027then he should explode in sunlight.He'd have to be the Ur-grue at least.
>>28805982TELEPORT HIMINTO THE GROUND
>>28805982build a crude, blood-filled replica of yourself and all the other heroes, then book it while the time is still frozen
I hate to say it but I think it may be heroic sacrifice time.
>>28805982Is he conscious? If so, call Rena on the phone and hope one of his family members answers it.
>>28806049TELEPORT JUGGLE! Teleport him up, then yourself up then him up again! KEEP GOING UNTIL SPACE!
>>28805982Quick, what is the most powerful force at magical girls' disposal?
>>28806054If he can't move, he can't muster strength. Teleport him into solid concrete.
>>28806072A kissu of twue rabbu?
>>28806072power isn't going to cut it.But it's probably some bullshit like love, or determination or something.Great if you're trying to defeat an amorphous black shadow. Not so much use against armour plated killing machines from the planet Gtrgtzxkul
>>28806055Seconding.>>28806072Transforming into their final form at the last second...ohohhhhhhhhThe early transformation was a mistake.
>>28805982Teleport him two miles STRAIGHT DOWN.
>>28806076What if he just changes into a monster with some sort of intangibility trait?
>>28806069But we have no way of gaining angular momentum, and therefore orbit. He'll eventually come back down.
>>28806012This, oh god this. He'll claw his way out, but it'll buy us at least a few minutes to recover and reposition.
>>28806094STOP RUINING THE BEST PLAN WITH YOUR SCIENCE!
>>28806096Use your teleportation to thrust your hand into his chest and rip his goddamn heart(s) out.
>>28806091Then he'll have to change back to attack.
>>28806094Pfft, so teleport him up to GEO. Magical girls can breathe in space, so no worries!
>>28806115for extra swag, use the disposable mechanical one.
>>28806094Teleport him into space and then hit him with something kinetic at the exact moment he is unfrozen.INERTIA, MOTHERFUCKER
>>28806133I think it was made clear that rapid teleportation isn't an option.
>>28806133Geosynchronous orbit still has a considerably higher velocity than on the surface.>>28806140We would need to bring MH with us to keep him frozen, it could work.
>>28805982poke him in the eye!
>>28805982Can you teleport a rock directly into his brain? A large rock?
>>28806072L-love..?>>28806030>>28806082What..? How...>The man inches closer to Magical Girl Sparkle.>>28806096>>28806089>>28806076>Magical Girl Sparkle Teleports him straight down. She doesn't know where he is but the ground rumbles as stone is displaced to make room for him>Madam Hourglass sighs.MH: "I really dislike fighting him...""Don't relax just yet... We've only delayed him a moment.">As she says that she can feel smaller tremors coming from below.
>>28806184Bait him away from the city
>>28806184fly up higher hide in the clouds
>>28806184OK.NOW TELEPORT US AWAY
>>28806184replace yourselves with cardboard replicas and rethink these plans
>>28806184Yeah, get some nice distance, and lead him to the desert.
>>28806184You can do it Sparkle! This isn't even your final form! HENSHIN!
>>28806184Tell MH to take a break, recall another S-Class on site.If they can't stand working together, they can turn shifts.And ffs relocate yourself, get flying if possible, he'c coming from down below and will hit like a volcano.
Rolled 13>>28806184Do we have Knowledge:Planes?Can we use it? Rerolling.
>>28806247>13Alright, so are we an Int or Cha based caster?
>>28806279Magical Girl.Gotta be Cha
>>28806279mahou shoujo are definitely CHA based
>>28806284but her tits are small/flat
>>28806247He probably changed form to dig himself out, so what we saw so far is useless now.>inb4: he comes back Shai-Hulud
>>28806298She makes up for it.
>>28806298Why do you think she can't stop MMA?
>>28806292>>28806284Damn, so we probably only get a 1 or 2 from Int bonus.Now we can summon monsters right? So we probably have Planes as a class skill.
>>28806247I don't know! I don't know what he is!"Everyone, we're going to try and lure him away from the city! Fall back!">The group retreats one more as the Monster Marauder bursts out of the ground. He glares at Magical Girl Sparkle and begins to charge at her. She tries to teleport him once again but her spell fails.>Chet Manlystache jumps in front of him but is simply knocked aside. It appears he has a different target in mind.
>>28806350The only summoning spell we know is probably "SUMMON ADORABLE FLUFFY THING"
>>28806298That doesn't have to mean low CHA.I mean c'mon, she's bro-tier.
>>28806333Because she doesn't have enough love?
>>28806355Try flirting with him to distract him while we come up with a better plan
>>28806355Oh god oh god oh godTry pokemon weaknesses. Use a grass type move
>>28806355ascertain the targetprer for interceptIF YOU WANTED TO LIVE FOREVER, YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER BECOME A HERO
>>28806355You're going to have to use the most hated tool in your arsenal.Yes, you're going to have to unleash that creepy love-and-friendship attack that mindfucks people into being happy passive fuckwits.Then you'll have to hang off his arm to secure him as your mind-broken slave.There is no other option. I'm sorry.Unless, of course, you unleash your summon.
>>28806355Better get good at dodging fast!
>>28806355Flirt with him.
>>28806355Alright, don't worry I've done this before. All we need to do is summon something that does know what he is.
>>28806355Dodge and try to trip him up with magic.
>>28806385> grass type moveYou're right, he's a goddamn Pokemon.Do we have some plant powers?
>>28806355He's blocking teleport.On himself at least. Teleport yourself.Teleport yourself down.
>>28806355Motherfuck, he's after us. Have MH slow him down a bit, then lead him away ourselves. If it comes to a last stand, we can keep the others alive, at the very least.Call Bridgette, have her ask her mom what her brother has turned into.
>>28806424Try water/ice if that doesn't work.
>>28806355He altered his shape without taking the form of a specific other monster? He might just be an amalgam of monster traits he has access to. That means we can't force him to turn back to normal.If we can't hurt him, then our only option is to convince him to stop. We'll need to remind him of his family.
>>28806355Use friendship magic and turn him into a lapdog
>>28806448There's no way he isn't part dark typeWe probably have Fairy or fighting type moves
>>28806355FLY AWAY NOW!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZRzVIhBBQg
>>28806467I've got a horrible feeling that using teleport on him has given him the ability to block our magic.
>>28806450Yes, that's definitely a different shape there. His horns are longer and curved, he has fewer spikes, and he didn't have back tentacles or giant mole claws before. He's definitely gained freeform shapeshifting powers.
>>28806371Beato, not everything can be solved with love. She isn't a witch!
>>28806355If direct attacks don't work, what we need is a minbender or an illusionist. Bet that combat build is weak on mental defenses.
>>28806446Wait, ask MM's dad. He'd definitely know what the hell MMA has turned into.
>>28806517She just needs a little more despair to push her over the edge, then. She's certainly getting there.
"Everyone, go! He's after me!">Magical Girl Sparkle uses a series of teleportation chains to get some distance between her and Monster Marauder. She feels a sharp pain in her heart as her mana is depleted and collapses to the ground.>In no time Monster Marauder has caught up to her. He glares at her and she can hear him breathing heavily.Is... Is this it?Is this how I die?>>28806387I know but...I didn't think it would actually happen.I thought that all the sacrifices that were made for me would make me so much stronger. And yet, here I am. Vulnerable before a man that could crush me with one finger...>He continues staring at her.I didn't want to die like this.
>>28806584Ask him not to kill you?
>>28806584Let's maybe try words."Hey, uh, can you not destroy the city this time?"
>>28806584Then don't. You've got to have some sort of last resort power for this kind of shit. You're a magical girl!
>>28806584Ask what his deal is.>panic internally
>>28806584ask if you are kawaii uguuITS YOUR DIGNITY OR YOUR LIFE
>>28806584Then don't. Live. Triumph.You have more experiance then us. Use it. Use that determination that won you your life where others failed. Remember that moment when that darkness told you were mere food. And how you overcame it.
>>28806584Your family is coming. Go towards the desert, they should be there soon.
>>28806584Pray Saitama emerges from his 60 year slumber.
>>28806584Pick yourself up Sparkle. If you're going out, you're going out standing
>>28806584"That hat looks stupid."
>>28806584Quick Sparkle, go against your nature and do something cute.
>>28806584Guess what MGS. It's finally time for you to summon.God save our souls.
>>28806584Start the super secret not-even-you-knew-about-it extra-special Magical Girl transformation that gives you EVEN BETTER powers when used for selfless reasons.
>>28806584"Your mother is looking for you."
>>28806584We kno w you can do it. Mahou shoujo always triumph, for love and justice.
>>28806651wait, wait, wait.The costume is still active.There's still SOME mana.
>>28806584"Your sister said the family reunion is in the desert outside of town.... What, you need to bring a date or something?"
>>28806584"Hi. Name's Sparkle. It's kinda embarassing, you're the first who got me like this."
>>28806584MARAUDER! I FUCKED YO MOOOOOMMMM!
>>28806584>about to dieLight up a cigarrette.We had a good run.
>>28806584"make it quick"
He's going to flirt with/french us isn't he?I hope you like monster porn Sparkle...
>>28806584"So what are you supposed to be anyway?"
>>28806584It is time. On your feet, Sparkle!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJjscA9Zvcw
>>28806715DISPELL COSTUME. USE THE MANA TO POWER A TELEPORTATION SPELL ON YOUR GODDAMN ROBOT ARM AND RIP HIS FUCKING HEART OUT.TRUE POWER OF RABBU
>>28806584Any chance you can sacrifice anything to the dark and twisted Magical Girl Gods for a one time ultimate power-up?
>>28806706use CIGGARETTE NOIR
No guys, this is it. I just can't anymore...>Magical Girl Sparkle rises to her feet and stares her opponent in the eyes.At least I'll go down with some dignity...>The Monster Marauder reaches into his pocket. Magical Girl Sparkle closes her eyes and prepares for death. Her heart is racing.>Nothing happens.>She opens her eyes and looks at the Marauder.>He's holding something out to her.W-what..?
>>28806584can i at least see you face?
>>28806764sign ituse hearts instead of dotting the i's
>>28806764Light cigarette.Give autograph."So who should I make it out to?"also"What kind of monster are you this time anyhoo?"
>>28806764GIve him an autograph.
>>28806764SIGN IT, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SIGN!
>>28806764Nigga that's kawaii
>>28806764Do- Do you want to take a picture too?"also charge him a buck or 2
>>28806764NIGGA I TOLD YOUI TOLD YOU ABOUT THE TWUE RABBU
>>28806764sign it"from MGS to MMAxXx"
>>28806751I don't think MGS has anything left to sacrifice.>>28806779http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kf0yQbrY9Pw>>28806764Be ready to try the heart ripping trick at a seconds notice incase he decides he wants to boost the value of the autograph you're about to give him
>>28806815Censor that shit, Jesus Christ.
>>28806811No.He'll get the wrong idea.
>>28806764Sign it.Then kiss him on the cheek."Cute. Your sister said she's going to try to have them meet in the desert outside of town."
>>28806764Well, sign it!
>>28806764shake his hands too?I'm confused on how this works.
>>28806764Welp. There's your way to keep him from blowing shit up and stall him.Way to take one for the team, MGS. Enjoy your date.
>>28806764Wait, didn't he rip off your arm before? Not saying you should look a gift horse in the mouth, but what the hell is going on?
>>28806764I wonder if MMA could turn into the monster that made the contracts. We could convince him to take that form by saying that it would mean more magical girls.And Sparkle knows how to kill it.
>>28806861must be the mahou shoujo rabu rabu magic having an effect on him.
>>28806764Sign itWith lipstick marks and everything
>>28806861Nah, not him. Not-Kyubei ripped her arm off, as far as I remember.Someone's been watching Love Lab.
>>28806839its not uncommon for fans to pics with celebs they bump into
>>28806851Autograph is one thing.Handshake is another thing all together.He must first collect 500 stubs. You can find a single stub inside one album of MGS' latest single.
>>28806764Ask if he wants it made out to Monster Marauder or "Ben" (or whatever his given name is). Then put some real effort into your autograph IF YOU WANT TO LIVE!
>>28806764sign it as >>28806784 suggest,Then take out your hairpin-thingy and give it to him as a bonus.
On a completely unrelated note, just noticed the Queen of the World line in Red Sky Quest chapter 1. Larro, you sneaky dog you.
>>28806892Nah, if he wants to hang out with us, he has to behave. So drop the scary costume act, buster, or we won't be kawaii as fuck.
>>28806764"I'll sign this if you promise not to hurt anyone else today?
>>28806891I meant charging $2 for the photo.
>>28806877Damn that's devious
>>28806889I don't think it's actually been stated where she lost the arm, canonically.It could have been MMA. He was utterly berzerk last time, apparently. He's got better apparently. Only threatened to kill his mother twice, she said.The eye was almost certainly Kyubey, though.
>>28806924Do this.>>28806877This is clever. This too.
"Uhm... You want me to uh... Sign it?">He keeps holding out the notebook for her.>She opens it up. Inside is the signatures of dozens of Magical Girls. Some of them Sparkle knew about. There's an entire page left blank."Who should I make it out to?">The Monster Marauder turns back to normal.MMA: "Just... B-Benjamin..""Okay... To, Benjamin. Love, Magical Girl Sparkle....">She hands back the notepad. The Monster Marauder takes it and stashes it away in his coat. Well, vest now.MMA: "Th-thanks...""You're welcome..."MMA: "...""..."I...I don't know what to do.
>>28806935a magical girl got eat somehowand MGS doesn't strike me as a "anything for my fans" kinda hero/celebthen again, considering the circumstances...
>>28806982"so... uh.... what brings...you to our city?"
>>28806982niether do weUh, apologize for attacking and explain the concern?
>>28806982>I don't know what to do.Set him up with Rena.
>>28806982Could you like not kill anyone?
>>28806982So, Benjamin. What brings you here? And why the temper tantrum?...fuck, Sparkle's going to end up as the big-sis / best friend to him, isn't she?
>>28806982Ask him, as a favor, not to hurt anyone else today. And if he can behave maybe the two of you can hang out some time.Redemption is possible, MGS. Even for this guy.
>>28806982Ask him what the deal is.
>>28806982soo... What brings you to town?
>>28806982So, what takes you into the city?
>>28806982"So, what was that thing you turned into?"Also, mention something about the family picnic. Maybe let him talk to them on the phone.
>>28806982You're here to stall him right? Hang out with your fan.
>>28807022pretty sure the heros attacked first
>>28806982"I'm exhausted and you beat me fair and square...wanna grab some lunch with me?" Go to a diner outside the city and keep distracting him! If you have to take one for the team (unlikely) man up and spend the day hanging out with mister crazy monster man!
Sit down.Just... sit down.This has been the most messed up day.>Wonder idly if this is how every day feels for Rena
>>28806987...we have plenty of cash from S rank.>>28806982Ask him about the picnic. And maybe apologize about attacking. Wear uniform to city = bad news.
>>28806982"Cool shades. You've got a light?"
>>28806982He's the one who tore off your arm, isn't he? How exactly did that happen?
>>28807071wouldn't a cigarette turn into a sucker for her though? the whole cutsey curse?
>>28807078No that was something else
>>28806982Damn, he's cute.>[shipping intensifies]
>>28806982ask him if he wants to hang out!do this for uh......uhm...for everyone yeah! we need to distract him out of that totally evil family reunion!
>>28806982Ew, scraggly neckbeard. Still, we've done worse things to save the world. Chat him up for a bit, try to figure out his powers for future reference.
>>28807060This plus "My treat."
>>28806982You and me both, MGS, you and me both.Can love bloom on the battlefield?
>>28807062mostly a deterrent for fans I supposeAlso, it was a joke for the most part, calm down
>>28807112Well... he might be. If someone could convince him to shave.
>>28806982Kiss him on the cheek."So, you probably need to get to your family reunion. Want me to take you there?"We can't keep him contained, so we need to keep tabs on him so we can call in support if things go poorly
"You know, you're not half as completely insane as I remember from last time."
>>28806982"Just gimme a sec to catch my breath before I kick your ass."In the girliest voice possible. We'll make him moe-overload.
"So... What brings you here?"MMA: "Family...""That's cool... Why uh... Did you attack everyone?"MMA: "Sorry... I try to control myself... It is... Difficult...""I uh... Yeah, I understand. Listen uh... If you promise to stop destroying the city maybe we can... Go out for lunch sometime..?">He smiles. She hears a phone ring. He reaches into his pocket and picks out his own phone. She can hear someone talking to him and he simply nods.MMA: "I... I have to go now. But I hope we can go out... Later... Bye.">She sees him walking away from the city, to a more deserted area of the land..........Did I just agree to go out on a date with Monster Marauder..?>And so the city was saved, all thanks to Magical Girl Sparkle.
>>28807151You know, we could just... tell him that he'd look better clean-shaved. In character. The situation is so messed up right now that MGS might as well take it casually.
>>28807186Time to never follow up on that offer.try and get the best stealth hero you have access to to spy on his shit.
>>28807186YOU ARE THE HERO SPARKLEYOU SAVED EVERYONE WITH YOUR SACRIFICE
>>28807186Has Rena woken up, yet? Has she done anything stupid without us there to advise her like last time?She's in Bridgette's costume again, isn't she?
>>28807186and now it's time to start drinking, call Rena
>>28807186Go get shitfaced now savior sparkle
>>28807186Taking one for the CITY.PROUD OF YOU MGS
>>28807186D'awwwwshe will become more powerful after the date right?
>>28807186Truly, a noble sacrifice.
>>28807186Magical Girl Sparkle is the hero the city needs AND deserves
>>28807186Yes, yes you did....Have you even been on a date before?With a guy?
>hero quest rena>meanwhile, all the other charactersDamnit rena, I wanted you to be conscious for a change
>>28807186>Did I just agree to go out on a date with Monster Marauder..?You didn't just agree, you ASKED HIM OUT. You should probably let Bridgette know he's on his way.
>>28807194But he's sporting the rugged biker outlaw look now. He's the tortured soul on his road to control his powers.And a colossal shy dork, apparently.
>>28807246then you should have rolled better
>>28807186Don't be so suprised, Rena does it all the time.
>>28807186you should get more dates with him for the good of others.be the hero that no one deserves!
>>28807246>play her for one update just to get her put in a coma
>>28807246To be fair if she'd been concious she wouldn't have got anywhere near as many butt-patts.
>>28807186welcome to "rena heroing 101"today's lesson will be disarming much more powerful villains with panicked dialogue.
>>28807186Yea. On the up side, you might be able to get him some help keeping himself under control. I seriously doubt anybody has tried to get him some serious counseling or therapy.Can you imagine how much safer the world would be if he DIDN'T keep slipping into being an uncontrollable bloodthirsty monster?
>>28807186>Did I just agree to go out on a date with Monster Marauder..?Now you can tell Rena and make it double date!
>>28807186Your greatest power is truly love.Or more practically, manipulating a villain to be less dangerous. Whatever works.
>>28807186You should figure out what monster he was. I mean, some day you might run into the real thing. Maybe shadow knows.
>>28807186This is probably how Rena feels all the time.
In honor of MM copping a feel, I present to you some flatfic.http://pastebin.com/w7dzJvYm
If Rena got a comic book, it'd be titled>Rena, Magical Girl Sparkle's Pal
>>28807244how is there a difference?go into a store and wait for hours until they buy what they want, then movies, then dinner!
>>28807222Wait, wasn't getting there on out agenda while we were in Rena's head?
>>28807186>Did I just agree to go on a date with Monster Marauder..?You did. Wear something nice.
>>28807291>butt-pattsOh if only you knew...
>>28807321Thank you anon!
>>28807366But she's always wearing something nice.
>>28807382don't forget that the phone was in the>front pocketeither thigh or breast pats happened
>>28807186He... Doesn't seem too bad? A little shy, and kinda horribly destructive, but everyone has their faults.
>>28807186>Did I just agree to go out on a date with Monster Marauder..?And now you know why Rena does so many stupid things - because she has to deal with us all the time.
>>28807401She checked both the sweater and back pockets first.
is monster marauder MM++ or MM+++?
>>28807402Well sure, when he's sane. MM+ is also nice when she's sane. Saw how not so nice she got when obsessed with an idea though.
>>28807400well, there's work nice and there's date nice.
>>28807186This is what happens when you listen to us.Rena has to deal with this ALL THE TIME. And occasionally MM, too. And we will NEVER, EVER STOP.
>>28807432MMA>>28807436Both of them spent too much time in monster form. Seems to cloud your judgement.
>>28807237hopefully she'll get a huge power boost buff when near him.
I can't wait until we run into a villain who's motivation isn't something humanizing, and is instead"'cause I'm evil, duh." followed by moustache twirling and tying rena to a railroad track
>>28807457Maybe Rena actually prefers getting comatose.
>>28807492Honestly, with all the crap that she has to deal with on a day to day basis? I don't blame her.
>>28807475Presumably that would be Lord Death
>>28807513She does even stupider things when we're not around.Anyone else think we'll end up as an actual plot element down the line?
>>28807475But why are they evil?You can't stop us that easily!
>>28807492That would explain a lot.
>>28807536I hope not.>>28807486>implying bridgette has a moustache>implying she isn't in it for the bitches
>>28807551>>28807492It's a nice change of pace, at least
>>28807551state of unconsciousness fetish?
>>28807475So basically Dick Villian Bethany Dastardly the Third?
>>28807475Queen of the World is totally evil, she's just so much better than everybody else that she has to show it off. Not her fault that 'evil' means getting your way.
>>28807536Well, Rena mentioned how she can hear us to Sparkle. And Sparkle grumbled something how she can sometimes hear us as well.We should ask Bridgette's dad about us.By the way, someone archive this.
>>28807550>but WHY are they evilbecause with this money, I will FINALLY be able to complete my death ray doomsday bomb! Mahahaha!
>>28807570>Wait, Rena is part of the family
>>28807570D'awww! Hey, Rena got to meet the family! Now we just need actual dates.
>>28807570D'aww, look at them having fun together. And Rena's still comatose.
>>28807570Welp. Next thread should be interesting if we'll be playing as Rena.
>>28807583Why are you building a death ray doomsday bomb, Mr. Darkgrim von Killmaimfuckrape?
>>28807570So, guess that means we're facebook official now?
>>28807570I hope this is just a preview for next time. Or this is the opening post of the next one.
>>28807589Dude, the patriarch of the family is the concept of Monster, I feel like the family is pretty accepting.
>>28807321If the quest is a meal this is the bowl of ice cream at the end.
>>28807570What a nice picnic.
>>28807570Is that a sandwich in the Monster's tentacle?
>>28807589well, of course she is. She's Bridgettes official nemesis, and vice versa.
>>28807571What happened to him anyway?
>>28807570>happy family with Rena instead of Cynthiaouch>also MMA not killing everyone
>>28807621Aw, you're sweet! That's actually one of the best compliments that I've gotten!
>>28807613my bet is alcoholism.
>>28807570i can't help feel some one is missing there..oh well! they look like a complete happy evil family!
>>28807710MM+ is missing.
>>28807475You're going to need a really base motivation for that. No tragic backstories, no mind control, no corruption. Just somebody who delights in schadenfreude/making people suffer/trolling more than being good.That might be too dark, though.
>>28807570Rena: Wake up and kiss your girlfriend.
>>28807710She is missing.I'm guessing it's a rite of passage thing. Spend too much time in monster mode, lose your mind for a while, come to your senses.Bridgette is PROBABLY going to be spared the worst of that because her powers are comparatively weak and adorabable.Of course, in the meantime, Rena is going to be the primary target of a very pissed off and completely insane MM+
>>28807722yeah. Someone who is like "Hahaha! Evil!'but why, professor doctor?"BECAUSE EVIL!"
>>28807570Rena: Wake up, see Bridgette's dad, re-enter coma.
>>28807671>>28807710>>28807721Guys, be reasonable. With MM+ and MM++ together, no image could contain such concentration of Ara ara~.
>>28807710You're right, I just can't place who...It's not Ara Ara, we've got one there...
>>28807752>"BECAUSE EVIL FEELS AMAZING!"
>>28807736I didn't get any of the context clues but when did Rena become a lesbian?
>>28807613His parents were mean to him
>>28807818when wasn't she?she just did some experimenting in college with Dark Stranger
>>28807818More like Bridgette has finally decided to make some moves and be honest with who she likes.Though Rena's line about 'eating Bridgette' was also kind of adorable.
>>28807818rena is still not a lesbian.>>28807860this guy is just trying to push yuri.
>>28807818Maybe she's always been?Look at her relationship with whathisname>didn't recognize him at all>broke up with him by ignoring him until he took the hint>was apparently dense and unresponsive throughout their relationship
>>28807742>Of course, in the meantime, Rena is going to be the primary target of a very pissed off and completely insane MM+That sounds positively lewd!
>>28807760AHAHAHAHAHAHA! I'VE DONE IT! THEY SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE, BUT I'VE DONE IT!
guys, flatfic isn't canon
>>28807872Of course she isn't. She's Bi but not really looking for a relationship or fun at the moment.
>>28807818Attention, attention, do not feed the troll.This guy always flips shit about Rena being straight, just ignore him and enjoy the subtext.
>>28807885I feel dizzy>>28807904dude, stop flipping your shit over yuri.
>>28807818i think there was a hint where she just left her ex BF w/o any reason.overall i don't know though.
>>28807901I still maintain she's not even quite Bi.She's just kind of adorkably clueless
>>28807626He's just happy to see you.
>>28807944she seems the clueless type, yeah. Not the type to do kissing.
Larro has confirmed that Rena's true love is food.This is why Bridgette is winning.
>>28807983well, not very well at least.
>>28807885You've messed with the natural ordah!
>>28807993Confirmed for truth.Let's just stop trying to put labels on things and enjoy the beauty of cute girls doing cute things.
>>28807885WHAT HAVE YOU DONE, YOU HAVE DOOMED US ALL.
>>28808007well, so long as people don't try to get rena to kiss folk for romantic reasons.She kisses food.
