You decide to tell it to Wendy straight. No bullshit, no code words, just the plain, honest, direct truth."I have Kirika Kure's soul trapped in a sword."...Well. It sounded a bit better in your head, but there it is. You just told your ex-girlfriend that you have someone else's ex-girlfriend trapped in your golden katana.Wendy, to her credit, simply gives you the slightest narrowing of her eyes as she continues to burn her cigarette to the filter. "...Okay," she murmurs a moment later, breathing out smoke along with the words. "Okay. So...are you gonna stab her with it, or what? ...Does it talk?"You shake your head. "It's...it's like a Soul Gem, in a way." You make a cyclical gesture with the hand you're holding your cigarette with, painfully aware how crazy you sound. "You use the sword, you get attached to it. You get attached to it, your soul gets trapped in it when you get taken out."Yep. All the crazy, all the time.
>>32917770I still think this is the goofiest plan ever
>>32917770The brown-haired Apostle nods a moment later, still remarkably lucid despite the conversation you're currently having with her. In fact, it seems like it isn't the strangest shit she'd heard so far. "Yeah. This...uh, the golden one? The one Curry had?"You nod. It's one of the Golden Weapon things, yeah. Same as the bitch stick making Oriko act like a bat out of hell. "You can talk to the spirit if you let it. ...It can also control you, if you let it. That's why I'm pretty sure Oriko's not herself when she did all that terrorist shit."And no, you're not going to stab her with it. As much as you can help it. You're going to fight your way through to Oriko, and...force her to talk to Kirika. Something like that.Wendy's pause before she responds is the longest here, hanging her head low in silence, her hair hiding her face as she continues to smoke her cigarette down to the filter. After what seems like an eternity, she looks up at you, plucking the stick from her lips and tapping the trembling tip of ash onto the carpet. And when she speaks, she does so like every word is costing her dearly to say."...Look. I'll go along with this for now, but...you want to save this bitch, right? So you're going to sit and think whatever you need to, that she's not crazy or doesn't want to kill you, or whatever."She gestures at you with the dying embers of her cigarette. "But people can really go to shit on you, you know? I mean, how well do you even know this Oriko chick?" Another smoke-tinted sigh billows from her lips, and she grinds the spent filter out on the expensively-wallpapered wall behind her. "Because it sounds to me like you retired her girlfriend and she's got a pretty good fucking reason to hate you dead."How do you respond?Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try....I promised someone I'd get her back alive, Wendy.What do you think of our chances?
>>32917775We've had worse. Need I remind you of the Interrogation of NECO?
HA HATIME FOR MAGICAL GIRLS
>>32917777>[X]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.>[X]...I promised someone I'd TRY get her back alive, Wendy.TRY. Emphasis on TRY. >>32917783I also that was goofy and dumb
>>32917777>[x]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.>[x]...I promised someone I'd get her back alive, Wendy.
>>32917777>[x]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.Let's have Deadpool here explain it.
>>32917777>[X]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.We cannot promise to be successful.
>>32917777>[x]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.>>32917775You gave me an angina yesterday. Try not to give me a full cardiac arrest Hat-chan.
>>32917777[X]...I promised Kirika I'd try and get her back alive, Wendy, and if I can't....Kirika and I are killing her.Honest is honesty, and we're trying to be better than we were.
>>32917777>Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.>...I promised someone I'd get her back alive, Wendy.Never tell me the odds
I dont think talking about promises in front of wendy is wise.>>32917777>[X]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.
>>32917777>[x] Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.NOT MENTIONING PROMISESNEVER MENTIONING PROMISES AROUND WENDY
>>32917807Also, mentioning a promise to Wendy is not the best idea.
>>32917775Hat pls don't hate on wendy
>>32917777Be realistic, but strive for the idealistic. The optimistic plan goes out the window as soon as it endangers anything else, but until then it's our goalpost.
>>32917777>[X]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.>[X]...I promised someone I'd get her back alive, Wendy.
>>32917777>[X]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.Good trap, almost fell for it
>>32917775We can talk Oriko down. Don't worry.
>>32917777>Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.
>>32917770Yo ass decizzle ta tell it ta Wendy straight. No bullshit, no code lyrics, just tha plain, honest, direct truth."I have Kirika Kure's ass trapped up in a sword."...Well. Well shiiiit, it sounded a lil' bit mo' betta up in yo' head yo, but there it is. Yo ass just holla'd at yo' ex-girlfriend dat you have one of mah thugs's ex-girlfriend trapped up in yo' golden katana.Wendy, ta her credit, simply gives you tha slightest narrowin of her eyes as dat thugged-out biiiatch continues ta burn her blunt ta tha filter n' shit. "...Okay," she murmurs a moment later, breathang up smoke along wit tha lyrics. "Okay. Right back up in yo muthafuckin ass. So...are you gonna stab her wit it, or what, biatch? ...Do it talk?"Yo ass shake yo' head. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! "It's...it's like a Soul Gem, up in a way." Yo ass cook up a cold-ass lil cyclical gesture wit tha hand you're holdin yo' blunt with, painfully aware how tha fuck wild-ass you sound. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! "Yo ass use tha sword, you git attached ta dat shit. Yo ass git attached ta it, yo' ass gets trapped up in it when you git taken out."Yep fo' realz. All tha crazy, all tha time.
>...I promisedI'm laughing so hard right now.
>>32917777>[x]...I promised someone I'd get her back alive, Wendy..
>>32917825I'm not...? I just think that the "get the katana into Oriko's hands" plan is amongst the silliest ones we've come up with and I'll use every opportunity I can to say "I told you so!">>32917807I only have one drawing today and have to be leaving soon.
>>32917777This >>32917793"If she ain't into stopping her shit even with Kirika talking, then I will have all the motivation I need to pull all stops and remove her kneecaps, understand ?"
>>32917847I would if so many were not falling for it.>>32917854No, Hat... NOOOO!
Guys, please. Avoid the promise choice for obvious reasons.
>>32917777>[x]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.Anti-vote for the promise option.
>>32917777>Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.Because mentioning promises to Wendy after we broke ours to her is such a brilliant idea.
>>32917863May as well have it out now in private in the only chance we're gonna get.
>>32917856>remove her kneecapsI think you mean 'remove her head'.
>>32917783To be fair, that was a great PLAN. The problem is we ignored the plan and went to pieces
>>32917863>I would if so many were not falling for it.That's why I'm laughing.Because it'll go down the shitter harder than Yuma raping Girl A
>>32917777>[x]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.>[x]If she still refuses to knock it the fuck off after this, she's going to have her head liberated from her body and I'm going to use her dead girlfriend to do it.
>>32917871>May as well have it out now in private in the only chance we're gonna get.Bringing up promises is a moderately bad idea, which is why I conditioned it with TRY. That might make Wendy more receptive to the idea that Chiaki's a human and allowed to make mistakes and promises she can't keep. That aside, as the anon I'm quoting mentioned, this is the best opportunity to air that particular issue and come clean. The crux here is in conditioning the promise line with TRY. TRY to keep her alive, TRY to make things right. come on guys, it's not that hard.
>>32917873She's not growing new ones anytime soon as long as we shoot the staff off her too. At least if the reports of her still not being contracted isn't bullshit.
>>32917777[X] Ahriman seems to be the real threat, Oriko is, as much as any of the girls in that church, a victim.
>>32917777[x]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.Don't mention promises, please. At least, not with the context we're trying to develop.
>>32917903To add, is bringing up promises the optimal choice? No, she's going to be hurt and probably angryIs it the right choice? Yes, it is. If you guys want any chance at all with Wendy, you have to come clean here and now rather than letting it fester longer
>>32917777>[x]...I promised someone I'd try to get her back alive, Wendy.
>>32917777I'll add>[x]...I promised someone I'd get her back alive, Wendy. To my previous vote:>>32917805
>>32917931>To add, is bringing up promises the optimal choice? No>Is it the right choice? Yes, it is.If it's not optimal, then it's impossible for it to be the right choice.
>>32917955Last time I checked this wasn't a video game.
>>32917854The plan is more to use the Katana as bait to try and get the staff OUT of Oriko's hands.Besides, Oriko with Kirika... That should be handleable. Not easily, but Oriko isn't a magical girl, making her the weak link if Kirika tries to use her for her own revenge.
>>32917955It really depends on the goal. Hat thinks that it's more conducive to establishing a better relationship with Wendy overall at the cost of making this meeting rocky.I won't say either way, nya. The promise option didn't win.
>>32917955I wish I could hate you to death. You are everything wrong with TTRPGs ever.Especailly in THIS quest, where there IS NO optimal choice.
>>32917931There is a time for talking about our promises, but now is not it. We came here to talk about an alliance, and bringing up old wounds is counter to that.
>>32918000Well, there are optimal choices. The problem is the optimal choice depends on what the players goal is, and no two participants will agree on what those goals are.Which is appropriate considering what Chiaki has rattling around upstairs.
>>32918043Fair enough. I expressed my points, they didn't win. That's how the quest goes sometimes. Let's all have fun together. At any rate, I have one drawing for today.
>>32917844That you for reminding me that Gizoogle exists.
>>32918067Oh, my angina...
>>32917931The nuclear meltdown is going to be hilariousI will, without fail, vote for the option with the most interesting repercussions. It's why I voted to mindrape Girl A as Yuma, and it's why I am voting to mention promises around Wendy.
>>32918073I use it when browsing /pol/.It makes it so much better.
>>32918164You're going to get Chiaki killed. Or worse, someone she cares about.
>>32917777>[X]Everyone has a pretty good reason to hate me dead. Doesn't mean I shouldn't try.
>>32918164I bet 10 bucks that you are just anal about some choice of yours that didnt make it 20 threads ago and thus try to ruin everyones fun out of sheer butthurt.
>>32918182>>32918295Nah, if people don't agree with me and vote for something different I'm not gonna hold it against themI just want interesting things to happen
>>32918321Then stick your dick in a blender. Thats something interesting happening after all.
>>32918409That's not a very good analogy, anon
Our best possible line right now: "Do you really think I have time between getting drunk, numb, and buzzed on nicotine to kill everyone who wants me dead? I'm a warmaster now, I don't even have time to blow off kneecaps anymore...usually."
>>32918321On the other hand, wont trying to get the Happy Ending to this story be interesting?.
>>32918466That wont be edgy enough for him.
>>32918466>still thinking that there's any kind of happy ending for anyone
>>32918466>Happy EndingSorry, that's only available in the New Quest+
>>32918466Maybe to other people, I guess? Not my jam, though.But I'm only one guy, it's not like a critical decision is ever going to rely on my vote.
I can dream cant i?!?,rather!, its even more difficult than just trying to screw ourselves so we will suffer more!, see! there is a flavor for everyone!
>>32918443Then go bait a pitbull, pick a fight at a bar with some bikers, go and drive on a highway like it was the Autobahn. They're all interesting things for you to do, and equivalent to the choices you've made.
>>32918509>one vote never being critical>rape Girl A vote being determined by one voteYour tastes and opinions aside, don't be a fucking idiot.
>>32918509theres so much edge i can taste it
>>32918523The problem is everyone playing the quest has a different idea of what the happy end is. My happy end would be saving the world then, shooting NECO in a kneecap and then retiring somewhere quiet with Midori.But plenty of people aren't playing for that happy end.
>>32918564Just one kneecap anon? thats not really ambitious.
>>32918523Out of curiosity, what's your definition of the "good end"?Everybody lives? Watermelon end? Not needing Coobs to treat the cancer from all the smokes and alcohol?
>>32918571but of course, there will always be the ever-present suspicion of coming back to shoot the OTHER kneecap.You know, an accidental flourishing of a gun here, a tomato in the head there...
>>32917805 >>32917806 >>32917815 >>32917818Everyone's got a pretty good fucking reason to hate you dead, you tell Wendy with a small shrug of your shoulders. Doesn't mean you shouldn't try.Wendy stares at you in stone-cold silence, before sighing and letting out what might be a laugh. "...Still so fucking dramatic, Kong." She chuckles again, the sound more a hurried breathing than something of mirth. "Save it for Hanegawa. I bet that shit melts her panties off."Before you could respond, however, the brown-haired girl that you previously thought a hallucination dreamed up by whatever's left of your jagged, ragged subconscious quirks the corners of her lips up at you. The ghost of a smile flashed at you for a bare fraction of a second. "...Anyway, you got me with 'I can shoot that guy in the head from here'. Not with any of that dramatic superhero stuff." Another pause. "Although...that means Hanegawa's pretty innocent, then, huh? Pure?"You blink at Wendy again, puzzled and slightly off-guard at the change of subject. ...Midori? You murmur your Callidus' name as you glance towards the bedroom door leading to the outside.Well, she's...yeah, she's pretty innocent, you agree with a nod. All things considered, she hasn't gone through most of the stuff Magical Girls do at this point of her career. Probably hasn't even killed someone with her bare hands yet. Or tore their face off with her teeth.You of course don't mention Midori's work as a doujin artist, of course. Or the fact that you just had sex with her last night. Even you know better than to bring that kind of shit up during this kind of meeting.[1/2]
>>32918546I don't understand how I am being edgy by voting for the option I want to readI could say that you are being edgy for doing the exact same thing, and it would be just as meaningless.
>>32918606"...How'd you meet someone like that, anyway?" Wendy's voice takes on a curious tone as she taps out another cigarette from her pack. "Just humor me, Kong. No harm in it."How do you respond?Ask her about her alleged 'death' instead. Why'd she never even so much as visit you? And does she know about Mami and your friends not telling you about her?Got hired as idol security. She was working for the Tenth, hired to help the idol get raped by distracting me with Callidus bullshit. I shot her kneecaps off. ...Rest's history.It's nothing exciting. We just met. Things happened.

>>32918498>>New Quest+>have to re-run entirety of MGNQ to get the Good End
>>32918778I dont see the problem.
>>32918778that can only mean more good times in store
>>32918789what if the good end requires us waifuing iori
>>32918799then we go full harem route and neglect her the most
Wundi y u so unprofessional at least Midori could focus on the mission at hand
>>32918804The Robo-Callidus, I think
>>32918799the good end would involve preventing the whole rape thing, possibly preventing Midori and Iori from being waifued.Iori doesn't get the trauma+rescue fantasy, Midori might just die without another word....until we read Miracle Midori.
>>32918770Well yeah, but saving it 'til later gives her a reason to talk to us later.
Is the Good End like heaven, where none of the interesting characters are?
>>32918799Then I do not want the good end.Iori is a shit, forever.
>>32918843I wish we could have seen her tears after seeing the picture of Murderface and Midori making out.
>>32918778The other bonuses of New Quest+ include all of our loot (minus golden weapons), Relations with Golden Weapons and unlocked abilities, and relationship points with all other characters carrying over. We also gain bonus damage to kneecaps and dickbutts, And a wall to hang all the panties we've gotten from the previous playthroughs that no character questions for some reason.
>>32918832But anon, we already seem to be on Midori route.
>>32918885Stop teasing me,i can only dream decu would allow us to do that.
>>32918885yes but can we get kharns panties on that wall
>New game +We're already New Game +. Hell, we're New Game +x (Lim x->∞). And no more retrys, the shield is broken.
>>32919038Instead of New Game+ it'll be True Game, where we play as an emotionally stable Homura trying to deal with her huge harem
>>32919022Not even attemptable until New Quest++, New Quest+ just gets ours in her collection.
>>32919075As if she doesnt already have them.
>>32919068and then we wake up from our drug binge remember everyone we know died for us
>>32919075>>32919068>>32919038Impying new game+ wont be:>Madoka goes to school>no transfer student that day>No Kyubey>No magical girls>No Witches>Just a normal day in Mitakihara
>>32918624 >>32918626 >>32918632 >>32918635You shrug again, and humor Wendy like she asked, telling her about how you met Midori. You don't give her the full details, of course, but the main points of it in brief."Got hired as idol security." It's...it's a bit strange recounting a memory that seems so long ago. A memoryt that should, by rights, have been forgotten already. Consigned to oblivion. "She was working for the Tenth, hired to help the idol get raped by distracting me with Callidus bullshit. She nearly got me, I shot her kneecaps off. ...Rest's history."You were waiting for her to laugh again, or chuckle. Maybe even a smirk. She does neither of these things, her eyes merely going wide by the smallest bit, her cheeks getting that pink tinge again."...You shot her in the knees and then you hooked up? That's..." She shakes her head. "...That's kinda hot. Seems like you've got a knack for picking up broken goods, Kong. ...Matsuda."Back to Matsuda, huh? "Thanks for indulging me, anyway." Wendy pushes off of the wall she'd been leaning on. "...Anything else you need to go over in private? I need to take a few minutes and contact the High Priestess about what we've talked about here. Just to update her on the situation." She sees you looking at her, and her lips settle in her usual frown. "Just broad strokes of what you plan to do. Nothing about...crazy ex-girlfriends in swords, I promise."How do you respond?...Nothing that we can't talk about later.Wendy? All this time you weren't dead...why didn't you try to reach me? Personally, I mean, not just in my dreams. No one's told me. Not Mami, not Sayaka, not Kyoko....Do you want to meet Midori? I can introduce you.
>>32919240>...Nothing that we can't talk about later.A time and place for everything, but be certain that it WILL be discussed.

>>32919240>...Nothing that we can't talk about later.Though we should definitely get on Mami about the 2nd option, it seems like it was more on her from what I can tell.
>>32919240...Nothing that we can't talk about later.
>>32919240>"...You shot her in the knees and then you hooked up? That's..." She shakes her head. "...That's kinda hot.There's kinky, and then there's terrifying.
>>32919240[X]...Nothing that we can't talk about later.Lets not spend ages in the bedroom. Besides NECO might be spying on us right now.>>32919302While I agree, Chiaki does not know Mami is responsible for this.
>>32919240[x] ...Nothing that we can't talk about later.Maybe hint that we're wondering why her not being dead was kept from us, but definitely don't go through with it.Definitely don't try to introduce her and Midori yet. Even if she seems to be taking this pretty well right now.
>>32919240>>[x]...Nothing that we can't talk about later.>>[x]But I DO want to talk later.
Seriously guys this is our chance to have a personal talk with Wendy and most of you want to blow her off with a, "Sure I'll totally talk to you later." dodge.That is totally the wrong move.
......wait, is this a deathflag?
>>32919240>[X]...Nothing that we can't talk about later.However, I'd like to add in wanting to mention Mami with a bit of angst. No reason we can't show her we're irritated someone lied to us.
>>32919253You mean like discussing what happened in Siberia, informing Sallaka and Kyoko about the real issues, etc etc etc.
>>32919240>Wendy? All this time you weren't dead...why didn't you try to reach me? Personally, I mean, not just in my dreams. No one's told me. Not Mami, not Sayaka, not Kyoko.
>>32919339Gotta be professional here. We can invite her to the 9th to talks.You're probably right though.
>>32919339I think we should talk to her, but not here and now; I know that it's mast likely that if we don't do it now we could never do it; but also think that blowing her off for now it's what Chiaki would do.
>>32919240[X]Wendy? All this time you weren't dead...why didn't you try to reach me? Personally, I mean, not just in my dreams. No one's told me. Not Mami, not Sayaka, not Kyoko.>>32919313being a magical girl frees one to the wonderful world of mega-masochism.
>>32919318Is Mami directly responsible? From what I saw Mami obviously at least knew, and it seemed like Wendy was sorta deferring to her. It just seems likely she would know what was going on at the very least.
>>32919339That initiative was lost at the start of the thread. The other options are casting doubt on our closest friends or bringing up the situation which hurt her the most to begin with. It can wait.
>>32919240>[X]...Do you want to meet Midori? I can introduce you.
>>32919364if thats what chiaki would do... then we need to go full murderface and add her to our harem
>>32919367Mami physically stopped Wendy from visiting Wendy, It was in a writeup.
>>32919367She prevented Wendy meeting her after she lost her memory. In the Wendy write-ups.
>>32919373This is not a deathflag right?!, we can talk to her later and we are not blowing out what could be our last chance to talk with her right?!?
>>32919240[x]...Nothing that we can't talk about later.Lets get this over with.
>>32919240>[X]Wendy? All this time you weren't dead...why didn't you try to reach me? Personally, I mean, not just in my dreams. No one's told me. Not Mami, not Sayaka, not Kyoko.>[X]...Do you want to meet Midori? I can introduce you.
>>32919384She stopped Wendy from visiting herself?...WENDY CAN TIME TRAVEL TOO?
>>32919386You're the only one panicking over this. Calm down, it's nothing
>>32919240>[X]Wendy? All this time you weren't dead...why didn't you try to reach me? Personally, I mean, not just in my dreams. No one's told me. Not Mami, not Sayaka, not Kyoko.
>>32919384>>32919385Oh. Well I can tell you my choice wasn't trying to be meta since I don't read the writeups.
>>32919403*From visiting Chiaki.I'm very tired, sorry.
>>32919413No harm, we are Chiaki, and she won't know about that either.
>>32919405It just feels that way,that nagging little doubt at the back of your head telling you everything will go to shit and all that......i hope im in the wrong this time.
>>32919413>I don't read the writeups.
>>32919443It's a sign of good taste.
>>32919435I doubt Deculture would just kill Wendy to spite us. Sure Wendy might die it things go totally wrong, but so might Midori or Sayaka or Kyoko. Just like always.So vote smart in the actual prophet encounter and make sure NO ONE dies.
>>32919499Or that no one dies YET.
>>32919499>So vote smartWe're fucked.
>>32919499Hard when you've got Mrs. LEL SO INTERESTING fucking things up for everyone else.
>>32919511Anon, pls. Let it die.
>>32919499>So vote smartI hope you're ready for disappointment
>>32919466It's okay Sakutarou I don't even read Wendy's writeups but I read yours
>>32919499>Midori dying.>Hell ANY major character dying.After the whole incident with the sword possessing us, ie anon voting to literally go full fucking retard as hard as humanly possible, i dont think Decu CAN kill anyone off, due to the fact that it would piss off his players. This is of course something he wants to avoid at all costs.
>>32919562Midori dying would probably turn the quest ass upward but it feels like everyone else is fair game
>>32919562Sure. You go on thinking that.
>>32919562If we took the Yakuza mission instead of Retire:Kirika, Kyoko would have taken it and died. Decu said so, but I can't remember which after thread question it was.
>>32919562I find it highly unlikely that Mami won't die.
>>32919589>>32919594Hell an EVEN BETTER EXAMPLE was when anon voted to go full fucking retard as Midori in the barrier and charge the Boss Chiaki, leading to Decu literally asspulling to save Midori.He doesnt have the capacity to kill off any major characters.
>>32919240>Seems like you've got a knack for picking up broken goodsI guess like calls out to like, even when the cracks aren't visible.
Are we trying to provoke deculture now?
>>32919562You know he's given us enough rope that one day he'll just say "fuck it" and let us hang ourselves.
When he finally does it anon is going to whine at each other about whose fault it is for the rest of the quest.
>>32919562I figure that there is a degree of plot shield for major characters simply so that a single stupid EDGY vote won't result in instant death.Heck, that would probably just inspire idiots to vote for the option that instantly kills everyone.However if we choose a stupid path and keep following that path, I suspect death would happen. Obvious total death immunity and clearly having no negative consequences to repeated stupidity would piss off lots of players too.
>>32919403physical restraints are wendy's weakness.
>>32919655so wendy is into BDSM?
>>32919499>I doubt Deculture would just kill Wendy to spite us.Please. Deculture wouldn't kill his waifu.
>>32919648One of the many reasons why I hope anon can managed to dodge the bullets through dumb luck when it counts.
>>32919648The answer, I suspect, will be every anon, in one of a few major groups. The dramatists, the incompetent, the murderfaces, and the minority who had the right idea.
>>32919562>>32919589>>32919617>Hell an EVEN BETTER EXAMPLE wasBut thats actually a retarded example. People voted for this and giggles for the obvious bad choice. There are really not often moments when we have a clear THIS IS A BAD IDEA GUYS-Vote and of course if chucklefucks and "Hurr I wanted to interesting things to happen''-special care children vote for this and thus a characters dies who people liked of course there will be a shit storm. So far we didnt even have any character die due to a choice /tg/ percieved as viable. Just due to chucklefuckery.
>>32919689Also the trolls. Such as NECO.
>>32919527Only when he does.
>>32919648If he actually did kill off a major character it would give me a real reason to start participating again as opposed to lurking and such. The lack of the ability to fail in this quest has gotten steadily worse and worse over time.
>>32919758>The lack of the ability to fail in this quest has gotten steadily worse and worse over time.I bet you voted for Get Fucked and Mindrape.
>>32919758>participating again as opposed to lurking and suchFeel ya, man.
>>32919758Well now you have a chance to fuck up with Oriko. Stab her or attack red Culexus or something.Ganbare!
>>32919758I fully expect Mami to die.
>>32919822By our hands.
>>32919847>implying Chiaki has a chanceSomebody would just stab her from behind again. And not, somebody isn't Chiaki.
>>32919822If it's just her and Wendy then I'm fine with that. In fact If Pinky went too that'd be great.
>>32919847>absolute configuration intensifies
>>32919887Honestly can we just kill all of the waifus? Fucking please?
Do you think Mami's ribbons can be wrapped around somebody's brain and used to control them?
>>32919907I hope so.
>>32919900But anon, everyone is someone's waifu.
>>32919900That might be a good idea. Does suicide follow?
>>32919900So kill off the entire cast? You might like rewatching the anime.
>>32919927That's part of the bad end route.
>>32919907>>32919914Plot twist : Mumi is made of life fibers. Can survive being decapitated.
>>32919253 >>32919255 >>32919257 >>32919262Nothing the both of you can't talk about later, after...all this, you tell her after a moment's thought. ...Is she doing anything by then?Wendy blinks at you, seemingly surprised by your sudden forwardness, before nodding. "After the meeting?...Nothing I can't put off."Alright. That's good. Maybe...maybe after this, you can get coffee, or something. Something to talk over in private."Yeah. That's..." Your brown-haired ex starts, before lapsing into another of her pauses. "...Yeah."With that settled, you stand up and move over to the door leading out of the bedroom. Rapping your knuckles smartly on the teak as you call out to Sayaka, tellling the Eversor outside that you're stepping out along with Wendy. Your ex-girlfriend calls out something similar to Nakajima a few moments later, about how the both of you've managed to keep yourselves from killing each other long enough to talk about your 'awesome plan'. Just enough sarcasm in her voice to let you know she's kidding. Somewhat.The door opens here, and you see that the living room's just as you left it, earlier - with the exception of Kyoko cheerfully chatting with an equally-cheerful Shiraki, the both of them raiding what looks like an open box of sugar-glazed donuts between them. Midori is...well, she'd been sitting on one of the couches set far back across the room, and had immediately stood up when you emerged from the door with Wendy....It could just be your imagination, here, but you could swear you saw her eyes narrow at Wendy as they flickered towards her. Just a brief flash of it, before they refocused back onto you."How'd it go?" Sayaka is the first to ask you, and you shrug. ...Not too bad, you consider. You haven't tried to kill each other yet.You hear Nakajima ask the same thing of Wendy, who only continues walking towards the suite's exit. "...Alright, so far. Need to let the High Priestess know." [1/2]
>>32919947Yes Midori, discover the bicth, embrace the bitch.
>>32919947It's here that your ex barks for the Priestess and her Prognosticator - and both break away from their respective positions to bustle after the brown-haired Apostle. "Ten minutes, Matsuda, and then I'll be right back. ...Grab a bite to eat, or something." Wendy calls, before leaving the suite, closing the door behind her. Leaving your retinue alone inside the room with the twin maids.Yeah. Sure."What did I tell you, Midori-san?" Mami smiles, standing up from her seat as well, following Midori as your Callidus rushes over to you. "Professional, just as I knew they'd be. They don't even look like they've tried to kill each other, either.""Y-yeah." Midori nods. "But, um...Sempai, she didn't try to hurt you or anything, did she...?"How do you respond?Console Midori. ...No, of course not. We just needed to talk in private, and that's all we did.Maybe just some questions left unanswered, but nothing major.Ask Mami about Wendy, and how she'd kept the news of her 'death' from you.

Sayaka already knows, but these two need to know about Ahriman and Kirika, and I am pretty sure we never told these two right?And I really want to see the scene where Kyoko learns that Kirika is stuck as a sword.
You didn't ask.
>>32920028>most trusted companion lied to you about your lover not being deadSeems understandable to be upset about that.
>>32920041Thats going to be amusing,ten bucks say that Kyoko tries to prank kirika after finding out.
>>32920063she didnt say anything about it, tried(sucessfuly) to hide it and stopped Wendy shen she tried to meet up with chiaki.
>>32920047She never lied. She just never told us. It's understandable to be angry at Mami for keeping our past from us, but throwing a fit over it like a child is what's meaningless
>>32920059>sneak in to the vault.>take katana off its rack>place in bucket of spicy sauce because Chiakiface told her the weapons are kinda like soul gems>just leave it there and walk out laughing.>"That's for taking my eye!"

>>32920063Lie of omission. Ironically much like the ones canon-QB uses when he does not bother to mention the whole magical lich or turn into witch-abomination things.This is the type of information a friend would know should be told.Ofcourse Mami will probably just say that Chiaki did not remember and she did not want to cause Chiaki pain and look miserable and Chiaki will instantly forgive.

>Mami, why?>You didn't ask, Chiaki-sanShe truly is Kyubey's aide.
>>32920120Right on the wiki page :"She also has a prominent jealous streak."I want to see yandere!Midori.
>>32920120Its natural to be a bit worried/jealous of the formerly dead girlfriend of your current lover I think. And wanting to come along might just be partly professional pride in her own skills and partly wanting to help.Then again, perhaps we need more shadowruns, and she is actually freaking out because Homucifer visited her dreams too, and she dreamt about the dolls killing Chiaki.
>>32920146Pls no,im scared of yanderes.
>>32920133Here is a better question. How the fuck does Midori know about Wendy at ALL!?!?!? And how does she know we were lovers at one point? I dont remember her ever being told about this.
>>32919969[x]Console Midori. ...No, of course not. We just needed to talk in private, and that's all we did.
>>32919969[x]Maybe just some questions left unanswered, but nothing major.That way it won't be as weird when we meet up with Wendy later.

>>32920164Possible that it was common knowledge at one point. Remember that Midori was a fangirl of the old Murderface.
>>32920164Mami told her?,she´s Chiaki Number 1 fan,she could have heard of it?,womans intuition?take your pick
>>32920191This is a pretty good point.
>>32920187When is she going full yandere with those knives of hers?
>>32920191Problem was we havent brought it up AT ALL, and for that point neither he she. So how, other than being yet another massive plot hole right through this scene, does she know about this?
>>32920146>we'll /always/ be together, shempaijesus piss that is terrifying how fast can we get off her route
>>32920213The sooner the better.
>>32919969>[x]Maybe just some questions left unanswered, but nothing major.>[x]Ask to talk to Mami in private.
>>32920145>Mami face when
>>32920213>yandere Midori and Pinky
>>32920164Mami told Midori that Wendy and Chiaki "Have a past." moments ago.Midori is a Calidus and a fairly decent one at that, I don't think it would be hard for her to read through the professionalism and see that Wendy is attracted to Chiaki.
>>32920243Round it out with Yandere!Wendy. Yandere watermelon end. Aww yeah.
>>32920221Gotta ask for source.
>>32920246Ok so the plot device did it. Fine then. Whatever bogs down the pacing even more i guess.
>>32920262Zombieya Reiko/Zombie Shop Reiko.
>>32920246To be fair, Wendy isnt doing a good job at hiding it.
>>32920243>threesome with Midori and Pinky
>>32920261If that happens I'd rather have a Golden Eagle End.
>>32919822I fully expect Mami to be the person who kills us.
>>32920282Haha, there's an idea!Why do I write so many lewds?
>>32919900>not realising that would leave us with no cast except Iori.Hell is being stuck forever in a quest with edgemasters, optimisers and Iori, forever,
>>32920284you mean a foursome with braids,dildos and murderface?,Count me in!
>>32920217Midori is a Callidus and has magically enhanced information analysis abilities. All she needed was how Wendy and Chiaki looked at each other, slight changes in body language, and she could have gotten that Chiaki and Wendy knew each other, likely in a romantic way. In no way did Midori act as if she knew Wendy should be dead, only to the apparent fact that Wendy and Chiaki have lingering feelings for each other. Just because the reasons aren't explicitly stated doesn't mean it's a plot hole.
>>32920314GOD DAMMIT, STOP GIVING ME MORE IDEAS.
>>32920314If I remeber correctly, the Eagle has all Homus in it, but only three are manifesting but yeah.

>>32919696>thinking the obvious bad choice is the one that bites us in the ass.By the time that rolls around guy, we've already doomed ourselves a million times over.Like now.

>>32920365I think it's just one guy who says everything is a plot hole and that anything that says it's not a plot hole is a plot device.
>>32920187I don't know why people are so surprised about Midori being clingy
>>32920417Yeah, you've been drawing Midori as clingy the whole time. It's just that it's CUTE when it's snuggly, so it's easy to ignore, I guess?
>>32920410I suddenly have a lot less hope for Eleanor ever being happy.
>>32920354It's probably more accurate to say that that the three we're seeing are amalgams of the most common recurring personality types.
>>32920314I believe we already established that is basically a gang-rape of Dildos.
>>32920410For some reason, your post somehow convinced me NECO is somehow a closet Yandere playing it cool.Wat
>>32920410I don't hate fun, I just hate yanderes.
>>32920498BraidsxDildosxPinky?Is that to your liking?
>>32920520you forgot murderface,himucifer and chiaki
>>32920437Just my wishful thinking there is ultimate mode Eagle has when ALL memories, knowledge, skills and PTSD from all loops are overloading Chiaki's head making her more OP than thousand Mamies.And then Chiaki dies from fried brains or shoots herself.
>>32920520Why do people only write lewds about boring characters? There's doujins for that.
>>32920314>and murderfaceoh man
>>32920432Don't be silly. You have absolutely positively definitely nothing to worry about.
speaking of homucifer
>>32920543How much is Eleanor going to scream when she dies?
>>32920417Because she wasnt this clingy after the Murderface-Expierience talk back in Sibiria and didnt start being clingy again until we had Snu-Snu. Surely also you can see this Hatchan.
>>32920456>a gang-rape of Dildos"Sloppy, unrefined, like a bunch of savages... going at it recklessly like that will get you all worn out way too quickly. Not to mention that your naive attempts to be all over my privates at the same time don't really make it any ejnoyable for me. At least you could have asked the green one for some basic tips first."
>>32920533No, Murderface would hook up with Wendy, Homucifer would just bang her dolls, and Chiaki is already with Midori.>>32920539Yes, there are...link them.
>BraidsFuck that sayakafag.>>32920456That's depressing. Dildoes constantly cry about Madoka while fucking.
>>32920561Death is cheap and easy. You can't suffer when you're dead.
>>32920533>>32920520Let's just get Sayaka and Kyouko in on it while we're at it.
>>32920554Sweet mother of AI YO!
>>32920592Suffering is but a journey. Death is the destination.
>>32920592Wendy finds a way.
>>32920608Journey before destination right?>>32920597I agree with this plan
>>32920597That's for another writefag to write about. I'm more of a MidorixWendy kind of guy anyways. Them having drunk sex kind of put that nail in the coffin now that I think about it.
>>32920582But that could be because people sometimes get emotionally attached to their sexual partners, specially when there was a previous relationship
>>32920608Even in death I still suffer.
>>32920608Some journeys are longer and more tiring than others.
>>32920589>Link themAnon, honey, it's not that hard to search "Madoka english" on exhentai. You're a big boy now.
>>32920592I thought you were the nice one, you monster!
>>32920654I can't into exhentai. I know, I'm a shit and I should kill myself.
>>32920426Makes me despair over my limitations as an artist >>32920582Her internal narration during the Barrier Arc showed that she hadn't changed. If anything, working up the courage to ask for a date means she got more aggressive. Sg just didn't have anything to feel jealous over until now
>>32920705Then anon linking them wouldn't be very helpful to you either.
I can't wait for Midori to die alone and forgotten.
>>32920703Are you implying something about best girl?
I got caught up in the moment. I apologize.>>32920661In all seriousness, I don't have any plans for killing people off or making everything hell for Eleanor, except for next couple write-ups; it'll probably be the absolute low point for her. After that she'll get better. For real this time. Things will be hard, but not soul-crushingly so.
>>32920703Malal wouldn't date. Dating is fun.Fun is dildoes.
>>32920740Yes, I impying she is the best.
>>32920737What the fuck
>>32920758Malal went on a date once. Then she left to die.
>>32920774I dont understand why does she likes that empty box so much,must be something to do with "the plan"
>>32920749I think you might be looking for that place over there.
>>32920737I'm indifferent towards Midori, but damn does this make me feel sad.
>>32920714No, Hat, stay cute, we like you that way!A little lewd to go along with the cute is fine too.
>>32920749>Things will be hard, but not soul-crushingly so.Thank you.
>>32920768It's homage to Nana's Daily Life, an old piece of work by Dan Kim.
>>32920799...Okay, I deserved that.
>>32920870Oh, no, sorry. I was actually pointin' to the place next to it.
>>32920886Didn't deserve that one, though. Or the one that comes after it that you were going to post next. Rude!
>>32920912Sorry, that was rude of me. Here, let's make you feel all better.
>>32919982 >>32919990You blink at Midori, before shaking your head. No, Wendy didn't try to do anything. The both of you just needed to talk in private, and that's all the both of you did. No euphemisms or code words or anything like that, you just talked. Period.Well, maybe you shared some smokes, but other than that, things were relatively civil."...Alright." Midori nods, seemingly relieved, but at the same time it feels like she's not entirely convinced. "I'll...I'll just step out for a bit, then, Sempai. Get some fresh air by the balcony." She gives your hand a squeeze, before leaning in and pressing her lips to your cheek. She immediately bolts after that, leaving you speechless, just as all three of your friends laugh and clap and smile at your embarrassment. Even the two maids, who seem to be busying themselves with making coffee and putting out new boxes of donuts, seem to be smiling in your behalf as well."Well, at least you don't have to worry about that spreading around Chirpee, eh?" Kyoko cackles, half-muffled from a mouth full of donut. You shake your head here, forcing your cheeks to stop burning, before turning to Mami....Why couldn't she have told you about Wendy sooner? That she wasn't dead at all? Or better yet, about her? And how come Sayaka or Kyoko never felt telling you either?The three members of your very small social circle turn to look at each other - well, mostly Kyoko and Sayaka turning to look at Mami - and it's here that the two Eversors speak in unison. "Witch watch."...Witch watch? What the hell is that?"Like a suicide watch, Chiaki-san, but...well, concerning more about certain at-risk individuals witching out than committing suicide." Mami explains gently, her expression somber. [1/2]
>>32920931Well I'M a little turned on, nya.
>>32920943Mami explains gently, her expression somber. "After Wendy died and you found out somehow, you...well, you changed. You stopped talking to people. You started forgetting things once more. Worse, your Soul Gem kept darkening at a disturbing rate, something we couldn't stem even with multiple grief seeds." She shakes her head, blonde curles bouncing slightly at the movement. "We were all positive you were going to witch out and take half of the Officio with you in those times.""You just sat there in your room, Murderface," Sayaka says, crossing her arms under her chest. "Days on end, you just sat there, facing the wall, looking at your shield and cranking it back all the way. Again and again and again. Murmuring Wendy's name." She shakes her head. "Every time you cranked your shield, you looked at it as if it'd bring her back. Never did, but you kept doing it all the same.""...We didn't really want to have to stick you back into a Silent Room 24/7 after...well, after everything," Kyoko murmurs, looking down at a half-eaten chocolate donut on her lap. "Even Kyuubey was spooked, and said that it probably wouldn't help. Either we...put a bullet in your Soul Gem, or try to get you back up on your feet on our own.""Witch watch." Mami continues, nodding at Kyoko. "It's a crude term, but describes what we tried to do succinctly. The link between your mental state and Wendy's death was undeniable. So we did our best to get you back out of that shell you've locked yourself into again, while trying to make sure anything that could trigger Chiaki-san witching out is kept out of the picture." She gestures towards Kyoko and Sayaka. "Don't hold it against them. They didn't keep Wendy from you because of spite, but because they just wanted to help. If you must blame someone..." She takes a deep breath, and then lets it out in a sigh. "...Place the blame squarely on me, Chiaki-san."[2/3]
>>32920931Consider yourself noticed~
>>32920959..."We were actually going to tell you about Wendy, honestly," Sayaka pipes up, having moved next to Kyoko, and was now massaging the red-haired Eversor's bared shoulders.. "After your official ratification. Something to celebrate with. Remember when you asked me about Wendy? On the plane ride back here?" You nod. "That's when we realized that it's probably okay to tell you about her again, since you're remembering her, and...well, you're not something out of a bad acid trip yet. But...well, this happened.""I realize I should've notified you ahead of time, too, at least...before this meeting." Mami starts again after a moment. "But...I also wanted to show Wendy that you're different, now. How much you've changed for the better." She smiles here, a small, bittersweet one. "I believe she understands now." How do you respond?I don't...I trusted everyone here. How could you do this to me?...I understand. I'm still a bit...taken aback, but I understand. Is there anything else you're keeping from me?But what about Wendy? How did she feel about this?

>>32920986[x] I understand, but that doesn't mean I agree. I won't hold this against you given the circumstances, but you would do VERY well to consider creating a briefing on any and everything else you may have kept secret, for my safety or no, and have it delivered to the Warmaster's Office at earliest opportunity.

>>32921014Of course she's not dead. The odds of Malal dying are about the same as one of our friends hiding a golden weapon for several years and never once tell us about it after we started looking for them.
>>32920986[x] Never again, you hear? Shit like this should not stay hidden.

Well that's mean they know what's going to happen when Midori dies and better be ready for nuts cracking.

>>32920931Is it happy stabby fun time now?
I'm slightly worried about Midori going out on the balcony alone.
>>32921163Is that some write-up stuff or I'm not getting something?
>>32920986Deleting my vote and changing it to this.>>32921121
>>32921163Someone explain the connection between Amber and hair flicking?
>>32920986I support what >>32921121 said
>>32921182Pfft. What's the worst that could happen?
>>32921121Lets go with this. + [x]Hairflick
We really shouldn't abuse Dildoes button.
>>32921121Agreed. Changing "I understand." to this.
>>32921145All things considered, that WOULD improve the situation. Mami is an experienced Meguca with Warmaster experience and who already has Warmaster-level clearance and is already up to speed on all operations.
>>32921182Well, I am not. Last couple hours have been pretty hectic, no wonder she needs a breather. It's not like she's going to jump.
>>32921196Green hair Prognosticator killing her because green is the danger?
>>32921209There might be a doll there that pushes her.
>>32921135No we must waste time.
>>32921207Then perhaps we should resign. Metagaming aside with being the MC, I don't see how this isn't a rational decision.
>>32921191Amber is a lustful gal. Hairfliping is something considered really atractive. Let just say we don't know if amber could keep har hand to herself.
>>32921254>NTRing Sayaka, Midori and Wendy
>>32921287Yeah, that can't possibly end up well.
>>32921135Obligatory Clara Dolls killing QB scene when?
>>32921188>>32921191Sayaka flashback showed that Amber is nearing Kharn-levels of appetite, except less picky about hair color. And she can be pretty damn ruthless about getting what she wants.We wouldn't want to accidentally seduce her.
Alright! Pausing thread for now! Thread to resume next Friday night!Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always great! We have one writeup today, so questions answered after it!
>>32921330Who cares about seducing Amber when we can seduce Jade?
>>32921356We literally accomplished nothing this thread.....so how many more thread before the meeting is over with then?
>>32921374Welcome to MGNQ
>>32921374I wouldn't be surprised if we haven't left the meeting until 5 more threads.
>>32921367Allright im in.
>>32921253The MC HAS considered it, many times. But Mami wants to retire so she won't accept our resignation, and neither will QB.
>>32921374We told Wendy the plan and learned why were weren't told that she was alive. That's more something than a lot of other threads.
>>32921374NEXT TIME ON DRAGONBALL Z ^H MGNQ: Continued dildoed watch-wearing.
>>32921356Thanks for running, Decupyon! You always make the dim weekends spent with relatives brighter.And make them pester me with constant questions about the girl I pesumably have, since I look at the phone every couple minutes and chuckle randomly.
>>32921356Thanks for running!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived and will update if there are any writeups!Seems like we got a little friendlier with Wendy again, hope we can keep it up!
>>32921356Oh no you didn't!
A few hours before the meeting with Matsuda and her goon squad, I was dealing with the biggest pain in the ass I’d run into since I got back into Mitakihara. Shiraki had called me at fuck you in the morning – hadn’t even gone to bed yet – about a crisis that apparently only I could deal with. According to one of the Prognosticators that came with me from the main branch, we’d been attacked during a black mass. A firebombing in Kazamino, apparently, one that nobody walked out of. Powerful shit, something that’d turn anyone else she could think of into a smear.After the third time she called, I reluctantly agreed to look into it. That’s why I was standing outside a police line at fuck-off in the morning, staring down the last embers of what used to be a church. Cops. The fire department. Actual mundy officials cracking down on stuff. Wasn’t something we had to deal with much, back home; the cops were there, but not usually until things were definitely all clear.I wasn’t used to worrying about it, though it was probably inevitable; any puella of any importance has a card they can flash that tells the normals ‘this is sparkle business, fuck off’, and I’d lost my privileges when I died. Or when Annie dragged me into her cult.…Maybe it’d still work, but I didn’t especially want to risk trying. Even more because I wasn’t totally sure where I stood with the real Officios around here – Miss Tomoe had a way of keeping you guessing, if she wanted to, and the Tenth would have sold my ass out in a second just to jerk off to the sheer misery it’d cause me and the Eighth. No, instead I was rubbernecking, wondering if it was worth it to be here at all.(1/=)
>>32921374>We literally accomplished nothing this thread.Some urgent questions got answered and even if it wasn't spelled out loud we quite possibly scored some Wendy points. 's all good to me.
>>32921461…Could have snuck in, but they had personnel inside already, and it was a pain holding onto my ghost effect without falling through the ground or something, and I already knew what I’d find. Maybe some lucky girls would just be bacon with lightly scorched soul gems, but I had a feeling nobody there got that lucky.I was about ready to suck it up and head inside anyway when I heard a passing motorcycle slow, then wheel into lot. …A Hayabusa. Flawless black with golden highlights, polished to a mirror sheen. Its rider was a curvy woman in pure ebony, and a playful yellow helmet. …It was the first and last person I wanted to see, depending on things.“Wendy-san!” Miss Tomoe cooed at me as she slid her helmet off, shaking her curled locks out. “I was hoping you might still be here.”…I didn’t know how much she was involved with the Church, but I figured Kazamino was probably in Ninth territory, too, approximately. Should have guessed it’d be her. I wondered distantly if Matsuda’d show up, too. If she did, I was gone.…Man, that bike suit had to take like twenty minutes to put on, the way it stuck to her.“…Wendy-san?” She frowned in her gentle, pouty way. Not the frown you had to look out for. …Well, it was definitely dangerous, but in a different kind of way.“…Zoned out for a second.” I cleared my throat to try and make my voice something other than a croak.“I see that.” Her lips tilted into a wry smile. “I know it’s late, but do try not to forget where my face is. I’m sure we’d both be sad if I lost it.”“…Yeah.” It was hard not to grin. She made me relax a little just by being there. Well, by being there and not half a second from putting me in the ground. …Not that I’d have minded that either, exactly. …It’s complicated.(2/=)
>>32921144>>32921200Hairflick is mandatory.
She turned smoothly, gracefully, and strode toward the officer in charge. She didn’t need to tell me to follow, or maybe she didn’t care. I did anyway – we both needed to see the same thing, and…well. …This was easier. In a lot of ways. It was a matter of a smile and a flash of ID to get her in, and the cops waved me through along with her.We bumped shoulders with the search team on the way in – they were pulled out when Mami played the sparkly card. All the better; it’d just be forcing us to work around them while we tried to figure out just what the flying fuck happened. Which…as far as I could tell, was all hell.The place was…well, wet now, but still smoldering. Burnt all to fuck, nothing but charcoal and debris. Firebomb wasn’t the right word for it, a firebomb wasn’t this…intense, and it wouldn’t have…well. It wouldn’t have left a bunch of charred corpses in the pews. It was probably beyond surreal and just as horrifying for those poor rescue motherfuckers in here.At a glance, most of them probably didn’t realize what had even happened. Just about all of the corpses were still sitting down, some of them were holding hands. Some still had empty soul gem frames pinned or clipped on in places, some had the remains of rings on their fingers. The floor was littered with broken fragments, and they crunched under our boots.…It wasn’t a sound you’d think about much as a human, but after a while as a puella maga, it only took a broken window or something to hit you in a deep, visceral place. Even Miss Tomoe looked uncomfortable as we eased our way through the chapel.The big exception seemed to be the preacher. I wracked my brain, trying to remember who aside from Shiraki spoke at these things. Probably somebody in the crowd from…the other day, nobody I’d even recognize offhand. …And I couldn’t recognize her now, poor fucker. She was more ripped apart than anything, scattered around in chunks and grilled.(3/=)
>>32921374Decu's not that good at estimating how long it takes to finish stuff.
>>32921499…Shit. This was making me a little hungry. Should have eaten a bigger dinner or…something. Maybe I could take Miss Tomoe out to a pancake place. I wondered for a second if they had those little diners, like truck stops. I hadn’t seen one in Japan, but I figured they probably had trucks here, too, so there had to be like, truck stops. But it was a smaller country…“Wendy-san? There seems to be a security camera set up.” …In a chapel? Something about that struck me as odd, but it wasn’t like I’d been to any churches since I was, like, five. “I’m going to see if I can salvage anything, if you wouldn’t mind looking around a bit more…?”“…Sure.” No reason not to, and even if there were, she hadn’t asked thinking for even a second that I’d say no. …She still gave me that same cool smile with just a hint of sweetness at the edges, despite that. I don’t think I thought for a second I’d say no to her, either. She could have told me to stick a chunk of Bacon Burger over there in my mouth and I’d have agreed to it.Shit dammit shit don’t think about food. And don’t stare at her ass when she walks away.…There wasn’t a whole lot I could do with the corpses. Nakajima could probably squeeze more information out of ‘em – at least an Officio body count, see how pissed off everyone else would be. And that was if Miss Tomoe hadn’t called someone in already, though I kinda hoped she hadn’t. For a lot of reasons. …A noise. A flicker of movement among the debris. My knife was in my hand in an instant, and for a second, I half-expected some barbecued corpse to lunge out of the shadows, like some shitty horror film. Instead…(4/=)
>>32921526“…Apostle Cooldown…?” A tiny voice, familiar in a nagging way, squeaked out at me through the darkness. …Blue. One of the girls from the Seventh, I think. Somethingko, the one with the umbrella. A pretty aqua blue pretty much all over, the one that seemed to spend half her time shaking like one of those little dogs that piss everywhere and yip all the time. This was no exception. This was the opposite of an exception, she looked like she could barely stand, and I didn’t exactly blame her. I tucked my knife away and……Well, I hugged the poor kid. …She just…needed it. Even I could tell. She started to bawl, snotted into my shoulder and wet my neck with tears. She might have been trying to tell me a story, but I couldn’t make out what she was trying to say. I couldn’t figure out how the hell she was still alive. All I could do was pat her back. Stroke her hair. Tell her it was gonna be okay. …Mami could have done it better. I shot a message to Nakajima to get her ass down here and play with some corpses, and that she’d be picking somebody up. And to bring a candy bar for the kid.Blue could stay with us for now. Jade was good at taking care of people; hell, it was basically what she did all the time. We could get something coherent out of her later, if we could keep her from witching out.Crunch, crunch, crunch. Miss Tomoe was on her way back already. That was either really good news or really bad news. The noise was enough to startle Blue, and she quietly slipped behind me just as Miss Tomoe came into view.(5/=)
>>32921544“Wendy-san? Did you find someone here?” Blue gripped the back of my jacket, right up by my shoulder blades, and I half-glanced back at her.“Yeah. I don’t think she’s in any state to talk, though. Already arranged for pickup; we need a Venenum here to check these corpses out anyway, and Nakajima’s pretty close.” …Thinking about it, Nakajima wasn’t someone I wanted to leave anybody alone with. I took a second to send Jade a message, too, to make sure her sister didn’t take Blue to her magic torture lab or something.“…Mm, as long as we can get an accurate number fairly quickly. I need to know what to tell Kyuubey and the Warmaster.” Miss Tomoe and Nakajima didn’t really care for each other, and it showed just a twinge in Mami’s expression. But Amber was the best the Eighth had to offer in…whatever her field was. A quick, accurate number would be easy enough for her.“Good. I was able to pull together a recording of the events leading up to the fire. Ah, Miss, I’d like to show the Apostle something you may not want to see again, so if you wouldn’t mind standing aside…?” Mami smiled her kind, disarming smile, and Blue let me go in an instant, shuffling a few steps away and turning, then turning again, looking for a direction that was a little less corpsey.…I didn’t like what Mami showed me. I didn’t like it at all. No sound, but it was some Culexus cunt. She just showed up and wiped the place out, all at once, then torched it. Had a message to send. A Culexus that shat fire instead of making people puke, that was all too familiar. The Prophet. The fucking Prophet.(6/=)
>>32921561We put off dealing with her and we got fucked for it. I growled out a few choice swears and whirled away from Miss Tomoe, half-prepared to stomp a fucking mudhole in some asses right there. We didn’t have as much intel as we would have liked, but we had enough. We had prognosticators. We had girls – we had better than just girls, we had fanatics. We had people that’d charge in and die trying to rip these fuckers apart without blinking. It was the best revenge force a girl could ask for. All this cult shit had been nothing but a pain up until that moment, but all of a sudden, it was like crazy blood Christmas.She’d finally, finally fucked with us a little too much. Fucked with me. Fucked with my people. I decided right then and there that I was going to carve her a Glasgow fucking smile, and I was gonna do it today. …Culexus would be tough, but I wasn’t sure my soul gem could even pop like that anymore. Not with Pinkbitch sitting on my shoulder all the time. Prophet herself was just a prop, right? A puppet everyone else masturbated to. That was what I heard. Dead bitches. All of them.I almost swung at Mami as she placed a hand on my shoulder.“I know. We’re all upset right now, but we shouldn’t act too rashly. Weren’t you already going to call on the Ninth for help…?” I couldn’t hold it, not completely. Couldn’t keep a firm grip on that burning rage, not with Miss Tomoe there. “I’d like to arrange a meeting - sooner rather than later - and we can discuss it with the Warmaster.”…I deflated a little and just…nodded. …Yeah. Sure. We’d…talk to Matsuda. …Fucking fantastic. Just what I wanted to do today.---(7/12)
>>32921356What new features will be available in New Quest+?
>>32921570I caught a ride with Miss Tomoe back to the hotel where we’d planned to hold the meeting. It almost reminded me of riding bitch on Schpeltiger back when…well, nevermind. Mami was shorter, wore her helmet, and was…softer to hang onto. …Made it a little hard to feel feminine, y’know? She just…had that effect, made everyone else feel like a clumsy asshole. Even doing stuff like this. Didn’t matter, though, it was nice. The ride back to Mitakihara wasn’t nearly long enough.She practically pushed me into the shower when we arrived, and I didn’t blame her – we both smelled like bad barbecue. She had a meeting to set up, and I had a few calls I wanted to make, too. Shiraki wanted to be there for the Shieldmaiden, and she was the local branch head. Called up the prognosticators and asked them to send someone, just in case. Nakajima and Jade, too, I…well, I needed somebody I trusted there, aside from Miss Tomoe. Had to make a good impression. Had to put up a good front for the Church’s image, same as dealing with other Officios. Had to show we were strong and united and pissed beyond belief.…Maybe I just wanted backup, in case things went south.It didn’t hit me how tired I was until I felt hot water on my skin, and my brain just about shut itself down on the spot. I fell against the tile on the wall and just…rested, for a moment. …Hadn’t slept well, not for a while now. Not that that was new. I still had a handful of sleep aids from…the Christmas before last, but I couldn’t bring myself to use the bottle all the way up. Or maybe I didn’t want to sleep. Fuck if I knew. But the shower, that felt better than anything I could imagine, right then.(8/12)
>>32921583…I guess I did fall asleep, because I was jolted awake a few minutes later – I think just a few minutes – by the sound of the shower curtain being pushed aside. My knife was in my hand (which for a split second was kind of ironic), and then it was gone as I caught a glance at flowing, golden hair, curling gently down Miss Tomoe’s shoulders. She gave me a sweet smile, as if this wasn’t strange at all.…She had a towel wrapped around her body, and it kinda pissed me off.“I’m sorry for waking you, Wendy-san.” She giggled, and my face burned hot. “We’ll be meeting with the Warmaster in a little over an hour, and I’d like to help you relax. You need to be at your best, after all.” ..Yeah. It was my first time meeting Chiaki Matsuda. First time really meeting her. No bullshit, no…no weird, complicated stuff because I was kind of afraid to see her.She noticed I was worried immediately, and pressed up against my back, wrapping her arms around my waist. …I felt vulnerable, right then, in…in that way only Miss Tomoe could make you feel vulnerable. In this warm, numbing way that made you want to feel helpless. My dignity and will to resist were sitting out there with my panties. …Still tried to cover up a little, though, and when she noticed, she just giggled.My hand rested on hers for just a moment before she pulled them both away and slipped her fingers into my hair, running them through wavy, copper-red locks.“You really need to brush it more often, Wendy-san.” She tut-tutted at me and began to…to do it herself. It was…that was all it took. She didn’t have to do anything dirty, didn't have to speak. Barely had to touch me at all. I could feel her fingers and the brush in my hair, and the fatigue, the tension, the worry…they all melted away.(9/12)
>>32921597I had to fight not to laugh as she lathered up my scalp a few minutes later, humming that song she seemed to like so much.“C’mon, I’m twenty years old, Mami. I can do this. Really…” I didn’t want her to stop. I leaned back against her, and she paused for a second.“My. I’m only nineteen, you know. Maybe you should be taking care of me by now, Wendy. Or do you always want to be tended to by a younger woman…?” Yeah. I absolutely, totally did. …Guess she’d been doing this kind of thing for me for a long time, though. Not usually in the shower. The swell of her chest squeezed against me as she reached over me to redirect the showerhead, and soap and water flowed over my tired eyes.…Fucking towel.“…Hey. If you want to be taken care of…I mean, I’ll do you anytime. …Too. …Do you too. …Anytime.” That went from zero to fuckup in no time. I just snapped my jaw shut and let her rub conditioner into my scalp. She was smiling again, I knew it. Well, she was usually smiling, but this was the ‘Got you on my hook’ smile.“If you mean you’d like to help me wash my hair, then yes, please. Do me, Wendy Cooldown…~”Ffffuck.(10/12)
>>32921612Fifteen minutes later, we were out and blowdried, and I hadn’t stopped blushing yet. Hairstyling was…fun, actually. When we had time for it. But today, we didn’t. With a gentle golden glow, her hair curled into its trademark drills, and with my own harsh pinpricks of light, mine whipped itself into tight pigtails, tied tight with…little yellow ribbons. I stared for a second, then my eyes flicked over to Miss Tomoe, who’d gone back to humming. She sent me a sidelong glance, and what may have been a smirk.“There was one other thing…I know you’ll do your best not to make a scene, but I’m still a bit worried about you and Chiaki-san, since she still doesn’t have the best self-control.” Two fingers pointed at me like a little pistol, and a ribbon snaked out from between them and coiled around my neck, tying itself into a small bow in the back. …It was a little tight. It was always a little tight.“This is just a bit of a reminder. I need you to be as pleasant as you can, Wendy, and I think with a gentle reminder like this, that won’t be a problem for you. Will it…?” She turned back to the mirror without even waiting for an answer.“No, Miss Tomoe.” I gave one anyway, without even thinking. “…Civil and pleasant. Sure. Even if she pulls a gun on me.” Did she still do that? “Does she still do that?”Mami paused for a moment, then let out a soft sigh.“Yes, despite our best efforts. She’s…well, she’s gotten much better, Wendy-san. I’m sorry I have to phrase it like that, I truly am. But she’s still…a bit rough around the edges. You’re still quite a lot alike.” The look she gave me was just shy of pitying. “But I can at least say that the resemblances are in somewhat less…difficult areas, now. For both of you.”…Great. I had no idea what that meant. Was it…was it about fucking fat girls?---(11/12)
>>32921544>>32921356Why is Wendy so good at being a big sister?
We were all tense as we waited for the Warmaster and her goon squad to show up. I had the prognosticator – Yulia, apparently, but I’d just been calling her Stutters – keep tabs on what she was doing. How many she was bringing. I couldn’t shake the feeling that she was going to walk in itching for a fight, despite Miss Tomoe’s best attempts at calming me down.“She’s fucking with me. She brought like, everybody that matters but Karasawa, and I wouldn’t be able to detect Karasawa even if she brought her. She’s fucking with me.” I downed my second cup of hot tea, I guess in the past ten minutes or so.“Isn’t that what you would do, Wendy?” Mami answered coolly, like she always did. “And please, be a bit more gentle with your tea.”“I’d figure between you, Mickey, and me, we’d probably be good.” My leg kept twitching, and I hunched over in my seat. …Shouldn’t have gone with the red leather jacket. It felt really tight. Between that and the…the ribbon.“You’d establish an overwatch, or rig the building with explosives.” A gentle suggestion, but a good point. …Bravado was one thing, but it wasn’t usually worth sacrificing prudence. You had to balance them. Shit. We should have rigged the building with explosives. We should have… …Ah. No. This was diplomacy. Just like any other diplomatic mission. Jesus, I was wound tight.“…Sorry. Been a long night. I mean…you were there,” I mumbled, feeling every bit like a complete asshole.“Well, we DID take a long shower.” Mami shot me a little smirk, and Nakajima burst into a fit of giggles behind me. Jade just cleared her throat and refilled my teacup.“Lewd, Wendy. Super lewd,” Amber chirped.“Terribly lewd,” Jade quietly chimed in. I felt like my face was going to catch on fire. Like all those girls today. …Fuck. I was mad all over again. But I had to suck it up – she was almost here. I heard voices out in the hall, annnd…Showtime.(12/12)
>>32921033>>32921072Mami threw hers away in a witch's barrier - while rescuing Girl A, as a matter of fact.
>>32921633Thanks for reading, folks, and for your patience with an unusually long writeup. Special thanks to Hat and Midori for the art here, and a specialer thanks to Hat for politely obliging me when I requested he not post that piece until the writeup goes up.
>>32921642So? We have tossed our gun away and it keeps coming back to us. The musket is latched onto Mami at this point.
>>32921633I don't dislike Mami but damn if I'm not getting terribly wary of her.
>>32921649Hat-chan is a good Hat-chan about that sort of thing.
>>32921675She's been tightening the ribbon during the meeting, too.
>>32921713Hey, I put the offer on the table
>>32921713I'm sorry, that wasn't very considerate of me at all.
>>32921597>…She had a towel wrapped around her body, and it kinda pissed me off.Heh
>>32921356Do the spirits inside the golden weapons ever change? If we had killed Kharn way back, would her spirit be inside the chainaxes instead of Risa's?
>>32921713Goddamn it I was just trying to be polite for onceI AM CURSED TO BE #RUDE
>>32921734But that was almost a week ago and you haven't said anything about it since then!
>>32921747Kharn wasn't even Kharn when Risa died.
>>32921712Will she do that for Chiaki too?
>>32921772No, I meant would she of automatically kicked Risa out of the weapon and replaced her if she died?
>>32921612>Do me, Wendy Cooldown…~HAAHAA
>>32921764Have you brought it up at all since then, other than now?

>>32921713>>32921734>>32921738>>32921753I don't quite follow...
>>32921862Turns out, accidentally bullying the Canadian is nearly as fun as deliberately bullying the Canadian.
>>32921839I asked for a picture of Odette about a month ago and was told to wait until Hat was free. It's not easy figuring out when that is, and I don't want to be a bother.
>>32921778That might not be safe. If anyone needed an actual trigger warning it would be Chaiki. Because if you trigger her, you get no warning, just her finger - on the trigger.
>>32921619>picNoice desu ne
>>32921356Mmkay, Decubutt crashed right away.>>32921620She's awkward and rough so any small show of decent human being affection from her seems much more significant! She's also sort of used to taking care of Lily, the Rabbits' imouto.>>32921747They absolutely can change, in the event that the new wielder has a stronger...I'd say will than the last one. Since their memories and sense of self erode over time while they're in there, it's not all that difficult for a spirit to get overwritten if a new wielder dies.
>>32921862I offered archival to draw either Odette or Typhus last week and to get in contact with me, but that never happened. I'm a busy person so if he doesn't show any interest, I'll just do my own thing. The onus is on you Archie, not me hahaha
>>32921906It's like you're guilt tripping him in public, here.
>>32921862The joke is nobody does art for archivalfag and apparently he's too polite and Canadian to ask for it.
So this is what happens when Canadians become indecisive eh
>>32921906>>32921967He's got a point, arch. Though I can sympathize with the fear that you're being a bother.
>>32922009>become indecisiveI thought that was their natural state?
>>32921952By the time Chiaki can handle multiple non-deagle golden weapons will she essentially become Magical Girl Aquarion?
>>32922029I can relate a little bit...I would definitely like to see Hat draw Odette.And maybe Chibi Odette but any smaller would be difficult.Only joking, I really like Odette!
>>32921946It's not like Chiaki wouldn't ask for it; she's just so shy that she doesn't realize she could get it if she just asked for it.
>>32922112Are you...are you asking me if she'll turn into a robot?
>>32922169RoboChiaki, it's happening
>>32922112Why would she become an aquarium? Nobody likes Sayaka enough to let her... inside, if you knwow hat I mean.
>>32922222Kyouko and Amber disagree.Also nice quints.
>>32922169Not really a robot.More like a weapons platform (for the souls of the golden weapons).> About Aquarion> The Unification or "Merging" process also combines the souls of the Elements to some degree, as each supplies one of the supposed three aspects of their soul into one when Aquarion is formed.So if/once she gets strong enough to carry multiple golden weapons [such as deagle + katana w/ bangles equipped] she could combine their abilities/sync all the possessions up?With the deagle alone she's already on her way to this.Essentially, the body is a robot, Chiaki is a pilot and the golden weapon packs add sub-pilots?
>>32921713>>32921764>>32921906As a fellow Canadian I feel for you, Archy.
Arright, if there's anyone else lingering around and you have questions, hit up whatever appropriate person's ask.fm or whatever. Ah'm out, good luck with whatever you do, folks.
>>32921633Nice jacket, buddy.
