Welcome to Academy City. The time is past sun down, the weather is dry, and the date is August 27.You are Kyril Torikov, ‘Level 2’ Telekinetic Child Error, and you were nervous. It was normal, you thought. You were about to face down about one thousand remotely controlled powered suits. To be fair you weren’t doing alone. Asuka and Toshino were actually going to be facing them head on, with melee weapons no less. You yourself were armed with four rocket launchers and ten shots for them, along with 8kg worth of plastic explosives but only six blasting for it. That was not all of course but you doubted your handgun would do much against those suits.Nunotaba had tasked your band of merry thieves to retrieve the Chemicaloid for her. You were part of the distraction team on this job. Sagara, Tadakuni, and Kyousuke, were responsible for the main objective behind this whole endeavour. Once they had that, Nunotaba was going to help you escape with an appropriated van. All of this had to be done before Anti-Skill showed up of course. Given the relatively short frame of time you had before they did, escaping cleanly was probably going to be the hardest part of the whole thing.It was probably too late to call off the whole endeavour now though. You had arrived at the main entrance. While you were part of the distraction team it didn’t mean you had stick with Asuka and Toshino though. They were going to bust down the door and crack some heads.>Full frontal>Find a better position
The rules are pic related.For more information see: http://padlet.com/BoredofDirector/acsquareq
>>33519347>Find a better positionwe're the ranged guy. we need space
>>33519347>Find a better positionEngage from a distance as is our idiom!
>>33519347>Find a better positionUsing rockets in close proximity is a silly idea.
>>33519347>Find a better positionWe gotta get a nice vantage point with a low-ish angle to better penetrate suits and to angle the backblast up and away from potential friendlies!
>>33519485Shit, sorry.I coulda sworn I'd cleared the name field.
I still think it would have been better to spread the firepower around some. Incoming fire from multiple angles is more confusing and less predictable.
>>33519558I thought we had issued rocket launchers to everyone but the melee gals.
>>33519347>>Find a better position
>>33519509Eh, just posting with a trip isn't that big a deal as long as you aren't impersonating OP, Bored did the same thing in your last thread.
>>33519589I thought we were going to try floating them or something.I'm not quite sure how long we're going to last with the amount of ammo we've got. These suits aren't particularly threatening though.
>>33519770I was figuring the special AC penetrators would do work if we could get a slight angle- like, fifteen or twenty degrees, maybe- and go for 'collaterals'But, yeah, I'm pretty uncomfy with our ammo supply.>>33519745Yeah, I guess, but is just feels wrong. and that anon that told me not to attention-whore is making me all paranoid and shit
>>33519920 No idea what that anon was talking about, I didn't see any evidence of you attention-whoring anywhere.
It was like why you were carrying most of the ordnance. You just didn’t see what a rocket launcher could do in close quarters outside of being an improvised club. Thus you split off from the girls, lugging the equipment away as you did so. Toshino displayed remarkable strength prying the door open with her bare hands. You didn’t get to see what happened afterward as you found another entry way. The place was a private testing ground and a stadium second. It was why it took you a while. When you arrived, Asuka and Toshino were already well stuck in. Flashes of red and blue danced across the wide open space as powered suits streamed in. Right now it was manageable but the girls would be surrounded soon.While the suits didn’t firearms of any kind but they did have some sort of wrench as a melee weapon. You saw the kind of damage they could do when a one of them clipped Toshino in the side. She went flying pretty far and landed at angles that normal humans shouldn’t bend at. It was pretty scary in a way, to see her get up, dust herself off and jump right back in. The numbers were certainly tipping the scales. At least there hasn’t been any kind of Anti-Skill response so far. The retrieval team has yet to breach, with Sagara and Kyousuke entering one way and Tadakuni entering from another. You weren’t sure if this was enough of a distraction but if you didn’t do something soon things make take a turn for the worse.>Open fire>Have Sagara breach>Hold for now
>>33520067 I know, that's what's freaking me out OP asphyxiated erotically
>>33520136>Open fireWe brought them, time to use them.>>33520143Next time F5 before you panic.
>>33520136>>Open fire>>Have Sagara breachAt the same time.Maybe one could mask the sound of the other, give us a free shot or the others more time.
>>33520136>Suits streamed in>Open fire ON THE POINTS THEY'RE STREAMING IN FROMSagara will breach when he's ready, right?
>>33520304But we're the distraction, we WANT all of them to be here rather than anywhere else. Destroying their entry points keeps them from being here.
>>33520354They'll still be streaming towards the threat they're aware of.Having to dig through rubble would buy Asuka and Kyouko some time to whittle down the ones already present before the next 'wave'.Whatever we do, we just need to make enough noise that they don't go after the others, and not die.
>>33520136>Hold for now
Hefting a launcher, you aimed carefully at the spots they were streaming in. It was kind of hard to miss with the kind of numbers they had. The problem was there were too many entry points to cover at once so you just settled with the closest one.Gage wasn’t kidding when he said the warheads were great for knocking things over. You hit a suit squarely in the centre, pushing it back from the force along as the projectile continued behind it, exploding in a yellow ball of fire. You lined up your second shot faster, blowing another hole in the ranks. It was your third shot that attracted their attention. They lined themselves up to go after you and that was just perfect. Both because it was easier to topple them like dominoes and because it took the heat off of Asuka and Toshino for a bit. Whoever was controlling them was a terrible gookclicker.Sagara had timed your shots and on the final one, you swore you heard the building shake a bit. He must have breached then. None of the suits seemed to have noticed. Of course after four shots you had to reload all your launchers. It was a simply procedure really but that really did cost you some time. They had gotten close to your position. While the suits didn’t look like they could climb, they made up for that by simply tearing the wall down so that they could get to you. You considered mining the approach and then continuing on your business of laying covering fire. The blasting caps were programmable to up to a minute of delay before detonation. Of course the other option was to run and gun.>Mine the approach and hold position>Run and gun, how hard could it be?>Some other plan? (write-in)
>>33520945>Mine the approach and hold positionno need to be fancy
>>33520945>Run and gun, how hard could it be?This strikes me as the best way to keep their attention without getting pinned down.
>>33520945>>Mine the approach and hold positionThe AI or whatever on these things in incredibly simplistic, we can probably funnel them into a corridor of death.
>>33520945>not reloading with TK as he's firingWhat a pleb
>>33520945>gookclicker... I... what?Is that, like, gook-clicker? Isn't 'gook' a term for a Viet Cong fighter?>Throw short-'fused' bombs in a semi-circle around where they're attempting to breach the wall, hope the blasts make a pile of broken suits, and find a new vantage point>>33521054That requires handling both tube and warhead with relative precision.Kyril's good at moving one thing at a time.
>>33521159It's a wonder he can even move his hands independently.
>>33521159I assume it's referring to their controller like they're a Starcraft player managing units. Since Koreans are so fucking good at that game, a good gookclicker would be somebody who could micromanage their units/minions rather well, while a bad goodclicker is... this.
>>33521248Ah, okay.So, gooks=mooks, or gook=racial slur?
>>33521280gook is a slur for a korean.
>>33521280slur, I'm assuming
>>33521293its for asians in in general
>>33521343Depends on the context actually and what war it is.
>>33521248He's probably using a tablet to play.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tG_XYFTp0xo
>>33521391Somehow, I understand entirely now.This dude's such a scrub that he clamors in the west and sends his troops there to make it extra loud and never realizes he forgot to send troops east.
>>33521054Why can't we just TK all the gunsUnlimited raifu works.
>>33521525Why can't we just TK all the girlsUnlimited raifu works.
>>33521525>Because we chose the single-focus TK over the multi-focus TK
>>33521560Fuck, was reading your text while typing.Meant waifu
>>33521578I thought the girls were going to be given rifles while we floated them aboutNow... now I am disappointed.And also imagining a convention of telekineticists lifting one another and orbiting and all sorts of crazy shit.
>>33521643It'd probably be a table full of people talking about how overpowered their ability is and then comparing how quickly they can accelerate a coin to escape velocity.Everyone in the city would be warned to bring a heavy duty umbrella.
>>33521875Why? If they could reach escape velocity, they wouldn't need the umbrellas. Unless there's something I'm not thinking of? I'm following two quests and building random encounter tables at the same time, don't judge me
Well if they wanted to come get you then that was fine too. Grabbing your plastic explosives you moulded them with your hands and quickly topped them off with a blasting cap before tossing them telekinetically in their path. As they climbed up closer the explosions ripped through their lines, clogging up the only way to get to you. You still had a 2kg left and a blasting cap, just in case. Your next two rockets didn’t do much as whoever was controlling the suits just gave up on you and spread them out. They piled on to Asuka and Toshino instead. You didn’t want to hit them by accident even if Toshino could take it.“94,” you could hear your girlfriend shout.She had made a small pile of scrap around her.“95,” Toshino returned, “I still got you beat Kuso.”“96, at least try to keep up Wanko-chan.”They were making a competition out of the whole thing but even then they were tiring. Toshino was starting to forego dodging. Instead she used the blows that landed to move herself around. Asuka as well was now standing still. Instead of flitting about, she planted her feet and cleaved anything and everything that came within range.“Sagara where are you at?” you asked the other team leader.“We’re going to secure the room right now, no casualties, on either side, yet,” he replied.“Alright keep at it looks like we did our job well.”Maybe too well, you thought. You never expected that they actually have an even bigger suit, two of them in fact. These ones had nasty looking guns slung under their noses and they just screamed bad news. The girls were too busy to notice but they were in your line of fire. You hefted the rocket launcher, now wishing the damn thing came with better target acquisition systems. You still had your Ability though but you weren’t sure if it could help here or not.>Curve the bull>All the rockets>Trust in manual aim
>>33522065>Curve the bullShouldn't Mugino be turning up soon?
>>33522065>Trust in manual aim, but catch your first rocket with TK and throw it as you fire the second- put one rocket into each suit, as close to simultaneously as possible.When things come in twos, there's usually a reason for it.
>>33522065> curve the bulletIs what I'm assuming OP meant to say. Gotta put those TK powers to work eventually.
>>33522065>All the rockets
>>33522065>Curve the bullHit them with their own attacks!
>>33522065>Curve the bull
>>33522065>Bend the barrels of their guns.
I see, 1d20 please.
Rolled 9>>33522425Wanted powers go
>>33522382I know STUDY bots are shitty, but I don't think we can bend steel (or whatever they're made out of, which should be at least as good as steel). Even steel that thin would have a minimum yield strength of a little less than 40,000 psi.
Rolled 10>>33522459Crap we've thrown a rocket into Asuka's face.
Rolled 10>>33522459Well let's hope the the bots aren't too accurate.
>>33522459cut that out
>>33522459>>33522516A terrible mistake has been made.
>>33522516I predict more wheelchairs in our future.
>>33522623>>33522574Bored was hit in the crossfireRIP in peace, Bored
>>33522839what part of 40-50 min average write up don't you understand?
>>33522883the part when conversation dies after poor rollsIt makes it spooky.
>>33522921He's trying to think of a way to use the roll without murdering us.
>>33522986You're not the one at risk here. Almost done though.
>>33523028Our Waifu is in danger. Time for Kyril to go ape.
You had to try at least. If your telekinesis was actually a field then maybe you could use it to guide the rocket to the target. At least, that was the intention. In practice, you really didn’t have much of a way to judge how, where or when your Ability could but it wasn’t a bad shot by any means. It just didn’t do squat to the damn suit. At least you think it was a piloted suit. By the time you had another shot lined up the large barrels belched their payload, heedless of the smaller suits in the way. It blew them all away.Thankfully it didn’t kill the girls outright. Definitely did a real number on them though. Asuka was still breathing but she wasn’t in any condition to fight. You’d admire her lack of clothing if her skin was rent with cuts and burns. Toshino didn’t even look human at that point. She was burned, charred, but she was still moving. The blue glowing spear switched targets. With the smaller suits being mostly taken out of the fight now it was just the big ones. Toshino knew that. You suspect she didn’t want to end up disintegrated either. The blue mana spread outward. It was twisting the ground, twisting the environment. That same foggy mist descended. You wished you could care about that right now. If only to make things worse Sagara had an issue. Something to do with the Chemicaloid and a final solution.“What is it?” you snapped.“They launched something from the Endymion,” Sagara replied coolly.Fuck you knew you forgot something.“And?”“It’s either the city, or the Chemicaloid,” he replied, “Nunotaba says the choice is yours.”Goddamnit why you?>Tell him to use his own discretion>Sac the Chemicaloid>There has to be another way>Let the city burn
>>33523028couldn't it just be a dud rocket instead?
>>33523246I know you generally don't answer questions for decisions, but this is kind of a big one here. Do we know how hax AC's defenses are? Because they can deal with this.All that matters is if we know they can deal with it or not.
>>33523246>Let the city burn
>>33523246Wait what.Are theyAre they trying to nuke AC?
>>33523246>There has to be another wayCall in the cavalry, time for LO to pull her weight!
>>33523246>>There has to be another wayDon't suppose we've got a copy of the Level Upper on our phone? Aside from that call up LO and see if the network can come up with a solution, I guess we're going to have to tell Kaoru what we're up to today.
>>33523246>There has to be another waylevel upper ourself and stop the missile>>33523335this sounds cool, always wanted to see lv 5 in action
>>33523335>Level UpperThat is a solution. If ever there was a time wherein we needed to git gud, it's now.Okay Kyril, it's go time. Level Upper or not, you need to fly.
>>33523335>>33523395>>33523365Lv upper isn't a solution. It takes quite a bit of time for it to actually work.
>>33523246>There has to be another waylevel upperbig damn hero moment
>>33523296>>33523324>>33523343Uh we're in the city.....and will not be able to leave before that hits us, I think that's a trap option.Honestly I'd suggest Ability Body Crystal, but we have no knowledge that it exists, so meh.
>>33523420>>33523365>>33523395>>33523335Requires the network of other espers plugged into the network for the boost. Level upper is already dealt with. Also what >>33523407 said. Even if we had enough time to listen to the thing, it wouldn't boost Kyril much.
>>33523246>>Let the city burnWe've got a job, we'll see it through.

>>33523246>There has to be another way.Nobody dies on our watch.
>>33523454Yes and no. Kihara's already started collecting his Level Upper victims, and had a TKer
>>33523454Okay, uhCall LO, have her use electricity bullshit to create a signal that lets Kyril tap into the network.
>>33523444AC can take care of itself honestly.
>>33523509But we don't know that. >>33523525Oh yeah! What happened to, 'PERFECT MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM', anyways?
>>33523511You need the collar for that. It acts as a transformer that compensates for the difference in brain waves (which is why Accel can use the Sister's calculation ability).Without the collar we can't hook up with them.
>>33523571Nagai doesn't know the setting.AC was never in any actual danger in this arc. The only question is if Kyril can figure that out before he does something stupid.
>>33523296>>33523324>>33523343>>33523399Let the city burn>>33523365>>33523420>>33523502There has to be another way>>33523489Calling SparkyI'm not missing any votes am I?
>>33523577Kludge a solution. Even if it leads to injury.
>>33523246>Let the city burnThe city has some hardcore espers and the likes.
>>33523577We could manipulate an artificial creature (Toshino) to change their brain to match that of the network, and see how fucked up things get when we combine science and magic.
>>33523630So many anons lack HOT BLOOD these days.
>>33523652>Kakine notices some bullshit going down>Giant white wings fill the sky
>>33523630You missed >>33523305for calling in the cavalry.
>>33523246"This is Acadamy fucking City. If one of the 7 demigods roaming the streets doesn't get it, then the crazy missile defense system surely will. And if that doesn't get it, then the laser grid mounted on the walls will. And if that doesn't get it, then I'm sure there's some other bullshit hidden up this city's sleeve that I don't know about."
>>33523716Hell I imagine Accelerator would get pissed if he looked up and saw something flying at the city he lives in at the moment.
>>33523738There's also >>33523652 though, so not much change.If we're wrong about the strength of Crowley's keikaku, this is going to sting a bit.
>>33523670These players have no GUTS.
>>33523800The better question is who the hell thought trying to nuke Academy City was a good idea.
>>33523776If it comes to that, I'm sure we can do some last-second improvising with the network or something to save the day. It does kinda suck that so many people voted to be cowards though.
>>33523738Seems I did.>>33523776That one is a bit late though.This ties up the vote. Let's have a quick revote then. Try to make it clear so I don't miss any alright?>Let the city burn>There has to be another wayFifteen minutes
>>33523766The greatest joke Kamachi ever wrote was "Technology 30 years ahead of everyone else">Supercomputer can calculate the exact location of every particle in the atmosphere in an instant>10 planes curbstomp entire Russian air force>Submarines half a fucking kilometer long>Fucking Kill Sats out the ass
Thinking about it, isn't it all a bit pointless? If you saved the Chemicaloid, you could then use it to control the missile....
>>33523818They really need to have some more HAM!Honestly.>>33523868>THERE HAS TO BE ANOTHER WAY
>>33523868>There has to be another wayCall the network, call Sparky, hell call the wizards if we think it will help, but get someone on that missile dammit! And if they can't for some reason, we'll have to boost ourselves somehow.

>>33523868>>There has to be another way
>>33523868>>There has to be another wayKyril a HERO>>33523885I'd believe everything except for the sub.

>>33523868>There has to be another way"Yo. Nunotoba worked on the Level 6 Shift, right? So she should know where Accelerator lives. See if we can't get someone to talk him into flying up there and reflecting whatever they just shot at us."
>>33523895>dark side member>having HAMIf you want to get shot maybe
>>33523868>>Let the city burnSeriously. Seriously. The city is fucking indestructible. It can't possibly die no matter what we do right now.
>>33523948>implying you would be on the Dark Side if bullets concerned youWhat are you even doing, anon
>>33523950And this is meta as fuck. No offence, but what Kyril sees is incredibly inept Anti-skill, and mad science. He would have no idea that it can protect itself. There's also the fact that STUDY to plan it's fancy attack, would probably be aware of AC's defenses.
>>33523868>There has to be another wayGet LO to ping the network, see if they have anything to contribute.
>>33523994But we're aware that AC and the Kiharas basically told them "Haha, you guys are fucking dumbasses. Go play in the pool with the other kiddies."
>>33523868>There has to be another wayBullshit a solution with Level Upper, LO, and the Misaka Network.MacGyver it. Don't care about the long term damage. Hell, brain damage would just mean we need a collar linked to LO.Be a hero. A pointless hero, but a hero nonetheless.
>>33523868>There has to be another wayand if there isn't another way... well shorter lines at the remaining AC banks! and we can say we at least tried
>>33523994We're aware that some damn scarier dudes than us live here and would not appreciate getting bombed. We're also on a job. I guess if your answer is to call Railgun about the nuke and get back to work, I could buy it, but.
>>33524049The bomb doesn't actually do anything physical, right? It just kills Espers I think.Which makes their plan kind of (even more) retarded in retrospect. Even if they're 0s, they're still Espers, it'd kill them too.
>>33524131>Goodbye, ~80% of the city!
>>33524147Oh god, Touma's going to wake up and everyone in like a 100 mile radius will be dead.
>>33523868>>There has to be another wayJust call Accel or something
>>33524176 Poor Touman. He always gets shit happening.>>33524180That would actually be hilarious. "Accelerator buddy." "Who the fuck are you?" "Doesn't matter missile heading to your house may want to get that soon."
>>33524176"I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened."
>>33524176Actually, isn't Touma on vacation right now?
>>33524336Yeah...I wonder how the rest of the world justified it when it suddenly became night/day when Gabriel moved the solar system.
>>33524336Yeah, so he'll be the only one to survive. But all his friends will be dead. Although on the plus side, he probably won't have to deal with Crowley's Keikaku
>>33524396Presumably he'll go full Bersi mode.
>>33524396>But all his friends will be deadAlso he just got his dad killed.
>>33524391SshhhDon't tell anybody.It's a secret.
>>33524336angel fall should be happening tomorrow IIRC
>>33524427You know what he's going to assume? That the fucking Archangel trying to destroy the world and everyone he knows and loves dying is connected somehow (not an unreasonable assumption).He's going to go kill God or something. Or Crowley, if he's the next best thing.
>>33524459STUDY will have successfully turned Touma into a JRPG character and they won't even be alive to appreciate it.
>>33524459Crowley's in his bullshit tower that managed to tank a hit with enough power to crack a planet in half.
“Alternatives?” you asked.That was probably why you were given the hard choices, you thought.“Not many, I mean, Academy City’s satellites should be able to kill it but,” Sagara started.“しかし, the satellites have not flagged the missile or it’s payload as a threat,” Nunotaba’s voice came on.“What does it do?”“It’s some kind of bomb that hits AIM fields according to the coats,” Sagara got his phone back, “The Chemicaloid’s Ability will cause a chain reaction in an Ability User’s AIM fields, killing them. Of course that’s the worst case scenario.”That was 80% of the city’s population gone, more or less. It also included you and many of your friends. It included Asuka. You were tempted to just shoot the Chemicaloid and be done with it but you knew there had to be a better way.“So why can’t we just tag the missiles as threats to the city?”“むり, that’d require accessing some of the highest level servers in the city,” Nunotaba interjected.If that was all you knew some people who could do that for you.“And we can’t shoot this thing down ourselves?”“I doubt it. Apparently it’s like some kind of MIRV, only with 5,000 different projectiles. They’re probably coming down on our heads right now,” Sagara replied, “If we can hit them all at once that’d be good but I don’t think anyone short of the city’s defences could.”Time was a wasting.>Kill the Chemicaloid, it’s trouble>Hack the servers, come what may
>>33524481Yeah, but Touma and Thor managed to find a way in with Kihara Kagun's calculations (turns out you can just use a jackhammer to break in if you know the precise points to hit it, since it's a math-based defense). If Touma can get Kagun as an ally, which shouldn't be too hard since he hates AC as well, he could get in.
>>33524499>Hack the servers
>>33524499>Hack the servers, come what mayIf we can't sic Sparky and company on it, this is the next best option.
>>33524499>>Hack the servers, come what mayWe might have to pull a Tohma and skip town after this.
>>33524499>>Hack the servers, come what may
>>33524542Sparky? Why not Uiharu?
>>33524543Touma had to skip town because he was getting a lot of attention from punching Accel in the face. I don't see how many people are going to see is flagging a rocket as a rocket, or consider it much of a threat.
>>33524499>Hack the servers, come what maywe had to leave town to visit teacher anyways
>>33524603Sparky's a better hacker. Uiharu was only able to stop her from getting what she wanted by destroying all the information she was trying to get, which is kind of like burning down your house to stop burglars.
>>33524499> Hack the servers, come what may.Kyril's killed before, but he's not going to start killing little kids.
>>33524499>Have one of them call Accel and tell him that unless he wants to risk dying, he should probably go do something about the missile.
>>33524624Yeah, it's not like AC is going to be angry at us for helping them stop a missile launched at them. Why would they be?
>>33524624Flagging the rockets implies we somehow knew they were rockets. That quickly leads lot of questions and ends with someone asking, "why were you staging a military assault on STUDY corporation?"
>>33524499>Hack the servers, come what may
>>33524677AC doesn't give a shit. They don't even like STUDY. They laugh at them behind their backs. And over the phone. And to their faces.They're the Team Rocket of AC's dark side.
>>33524499... Are they bluffing?Because that sounds like a load of BS to me.
>>33524701Probably not. Granted, their grand plan will also kill them, along with all the level 0s they supposedly represent. So it's not the greatest plan. Though I guess technically it's equality they're after, and everyone is equal in death.
How does a bomb hit AIM fields, anyways?Especially considering that they're different based on the multitude of different abilities.It sounds almost like the bombs themselves are merely the designator in this situation.Can we just knock the Chemicaloid out? Or does its ability work passively?
We should have let the city burn. It's a screwed up place.
>>33524816The anti-esper prison system things mucks with AIM and causes power use to go all wonky and dangerous.I assume the bomb would work in a similar manner.
>>33524816Well, there's the Imaginary Number District, which all Espers contribute to. Might be that. Not like STUDY could know about it. They might have discovered some way to hit it by accident though. And probably not. If that would work I feel like it would have been brought up.
>>33524816Once the system went full FUCK THE WORLD the only way to remove her is to kill her.
>>33524879The city deserves it yeah, but most of the people who live there don't.Plus it wouldn't kill Crowley or the scientists anyways, so it's not like the root of the problem would go away.
What if we had Asuka order her to cease all brain functions for a minute or so, (excluding vital involuntary functions) while the payload hits?
>>33525001Dead loli is what happens.
>>33525001...huh. Clever bastard. I LIKE IT!
>>33525001Asuka is currently unconscious, or at least in shock.
>>33525079If you destroy the working parts, what you'll get is a broken machine.A beacon of light from a burning screen.
>>33525079>Turn off all brain functions for a minute.How would her brain even know when to boot back up if there is nothing giving her a sense of time?Even if you go for non-vital I'm pretty sure that would still fuck her up for a bit assuming she can target that easily. Though I can't remember how much she has to be around to destroy everything.
“So just hacking the server?” you asked once again for confirmation, “Sounds easy enough. Now get them to shut down the suits. Shoot them if you need to. Hell, shoot them all, just don’t kill them.”“Got it,” was Sagara’s reply.You thought you heard several gunshots over the radio. The suits stopped.“Toshino, get Asuka ready to move, I got a call to make,” you commanded, “Nunotaba, get us that van, we’re leaving.”You weren’t sure what the consequences of your actions were going to be come the morrow, but at least you didn’t have to kill anyone to do it. Maybe that was the only good thing in this whole debacle. Maybe if you remembered they put something on the Endymion none of this would have happened. Too late for that now though. You called up Sparky.“Hey aniki.”“Sparky, I need you to listen to what I say alright?” you said seriously.“Uh sure.”“Right now, there are 5,000 bombs that are going to hit Academy City and I need you to get your hacker friend to flag them as threats to the city so they can be shot down.”“Huh?”“Sparky, listen to me,” you cut her off, “I need you to do this now. Like right now. I wouldn’t be calling if this wasn’t serious.”“What? Why?” she hesitated.“If they have a problem send them to me,” another push, “If you don’t do this, well, I won’t have a chance to explain later. No one will.”“But.”“Don’t worry about me,” you assured, “Worry about our sister instead alright?”“Alright,” she finally capitulated, “But you owe me an explanation.”“If we make it yeah,” you hung up.[1/2]
>>33525169Nunotaba had the van already running and ready to go. You and Toshino were the last to arrive. The sirens were still far off in to the distance yet. Now that you had the Chemicaloid, you had to figure where to go next. Asuka was still breathing and her wounds weren’t too bad. Heaven Canceller should be able to fix her up good, better than Nunotaba could at any rate. Still it seemed tempting to skip town. You didn’t want to be caught right now and you had a few ideas of where to go and how to get there.>Skip town>Heaven Canceller’s
>>33525189>Heaven Canceller’she makes house calls right?
>>33525189>>Heaven Canceller’sFuck the police.
>>33525189>Heaven Canceller’sJust for a quick analysis, then we're gone.
>>33525189>>Skip townLets get the hell out of town. Asuka can heal up pretty good anyway.
>>33525189>Call Tolour and ask about a safehouse with damn good medical staff and equipment.
>>33525233Can we not call Tolour so much?
>>33525189>Have the group drop you and Asuka off at Heaven Canceller's then tell them to skip town.If someone's going down it'st going to be just us.
>>33525189>Heaven Canceller’sWe can ditch her at the hospital and haul ass out of town.
>>33525189> Heaven Canceller'sLove makes people do crazy things, like risk being arrested to make sure our girlfriend is alright.
>>33525301Not sure if wise. Seems like it would lead to her pissed as hell we didn't take her with us.
>>33525189>Heaven CancellerOur girlfriend is on the line.If AC wants to fight us, it can fight us.We have a very interesting set of friends.
>>33525189>Heaven Canceller’sTouma only got to skip town because the higher ups wanted it. He wasn't going to get arrested for anything.We on the other hand would probably be hunted down and I fear the possibility of getting killed (just look at at Hamazura). If we stick around we'll only be arrested and we could argue our case (rescuing a "kid" from captivity and preventing the city from being destroyed). In a town full of super-powered kids, I can't imagine the punishment for vigilantism being too harsh. Or maybe we get dragged into the DARKNESS.
>>33525189Will anything happen if HC means Toshino? Not sure.
>>33525427Heaven Canceler wouldn't care. He is used to weirder.>>33525425Honestly given we Jacked something from STUDY I wouldn't be surprised if Aleister send us a gift basket.
>>33525425That's true, we're a level 2 (edging on 3) esper. They, uh, don't like it when their espers try and bug out.If we do get punished for what we did here, it won't be as bad as what we'd get for leaving the city.
We should rig this van to blow and switch cars.
>>33525492If we are like full on level 3 now they won't really care much.
>>33525467>It's upside-down hair products and a note that says"Join me, and together we shall float upside-down"In case you're wondering, I find floating upside-down to be incredibly silly.
>>33525527You don't know that floating upside-down is the key to ultimate power?
>>33525492Kyril is pretty well into level 3.
>>33525522They'd probably care. When they sent some Espers to LAC on vacation, they had bombers in place to send the island to hell if the Americans got any ideas about getting some samples. They had an AIM sensor set up to find Mikoto's position and extract her, they were just going to kill all the other Espers there.
>>33525786I'm pretty sure anon was talking about the bomb thing, not the skipping town thing.
Your first stop was Heaven Canceller’s hospital. You still had a healthy head start on the law. Nunotaba didn’t share your opinion but she also forgot to mention the whole AIM bomb thing to you too. As usual Heaven Canceller was awake and was available to treat Asuka, no questions asked. It was a minor thing for him really. The problem is that he would rather have Asuka stay for observation. From what he had been able to infer, she may have taken a hit to the head. It was probably because she hadn’t awoken yet. Toshino however was freakier, if you dared use such a term. What used to be a soot black body that walked around with no hair or eyes was now closer to her usual appearance. All she needed were some new clothes and she’d be good to go. Her hair was still growing. You were all seated in Asuka’s private room contemplating your next move.“Man I don’t wanna complain or anything Torikov but you really have shit jobs,” she said, “At least I didn’t set myself on fire this time, and the fighting was nice to let off some steam.”“She ain’t right boss,” Tadakuni told you.“Yeah, I can’t hear her heartbeat,” Sagara added.“Oh right, I knew I forgot something.”She thumped her chest twice.“That better?”“Now that’s just creepy,” Tadakuni kept up the commentary.“あなたたち, I am ready to leave the city with the Chemicaloids,” Nunotaba spoke, “I have some seats if you wish.”“Sounds like a plan,” Kyousuke said, “I’ve always wanted to travel some more.”“And who’s going to take the fall if we skip town?” Tadakuni asked.“Who said anyone has to?” Kyousuke shot back.Personally, you didn’t have the heart to force everyone in to a decision. Not after tonight.>Take everyone and leave>Leave without Asuka>Stay with Asuka>We hang together
>>33526193>Stay with Asuka
>>33526193>Stay with AsukaThe others can leave if they like, though it's not exactly a great idea.
>>33526193> Stay with AsukaNo need for our friends to get into trouble with the law; but we're not leaving Asuka behind.
>>33526193>>Stay with AsukaLO is okay with Sparky right?
>>33526193>Stay with AsukaWe can skip town later if we really have to.
>>33526193>Take everyone and leaveWe have a shitton of money to make a second base, good time as any, also stay with the Chemloids to secure their future.
>>33526193>Stay with AsukaWe could do with some jail time. Hanging with Spiderman might be interesting.
>>33526291The law will probably be here soon. I doubt we'll get in all that much trouble though.Worst case I figure they'll throw us into the Reformatory. Then we can have Prison Arc.
>>33526193> Stay with Asuka It's probably not the best idea to have espers leave AC without authorization. They tend to take a dim view of such a thing.
>>33526333>Kyril pumping iron in prison.It was gonna happen eventually.
>>33526193>Take everyone and leave
This could be our excuse to go visit Teach.
>>33526193>“Oh right, I knew I forgot something.”Man, I am gonna be a little bummed when we can't call on her for jobs anymore.
>>33526436Silly anon, she's gonna be indebted to us. Foreveeeeeeer.
Rolled 10>>33526473What? That was us clearing our debt with her.
>>33526193>Ever leaving Asukalol>Stay with AsukaLet the homies escape.Kyouko can keep them safe in our stead. If we're escaping, we're doing so with Asuka! AFTER she's better.
>>33526473Well, the usual period for these things is a year and a day IIRC, but if we tried that she might have an issue. Also, we just got her killed, so that'll probably be considered a good chunk of it.
“I’m staying,” you simply told Nunotaba, “Take them with you.”“わかりました, anyone else?”“Feels bad when boss says it like that,” Tadakuni mused, “Maybe some other time then.”“Yeah man, way to guilt-trip me in to staying,” Kyousuke joked.“I’m not going out there, no way,” Toshino as well didn’t want to leave.“Don’t you dare forget our promise,” Sagara said.Yeah, there was no way he’d leave.“そう.”Nunotaba moved and kissed Sagara.“Consider us over then,” she finished.Even as she walked out, Sagara’s smile stayed on his face. You kind of wanted to punch it off his face for some reason. The other lads seemed to share your sentiments.“Anyways, now that that’s squared away how about we get down to some real business,” Toshino broke the silence once again.“What do you mean Toshino?” you really were too tired for this shit but you humoured here anyway.“If I was any old schmuck I’d be fucking pushing daisies right about now, not to mention I saved your girlfriend’s butt.”“You going somewhere with this?”“Easy, I think I’ve paid back that money I owe you today,” she summed it up.“A Sister is a Level 3 Electromaster clone, born with weapon handlings, tactics and all sorts of useful things to know in a fight,” you started.“You going somewhere with this?”Now she was the one asking.“They’re worth only 180,000 yen,” you replied, “Don’t rate yourself too highly Toshino. They have better panties than you do too.”“Wow you know some fucked up shit,” she whistled, “tell you what? How about we compromise? I work with the Problem Children, still think it’s a retarded name though, and we don’t owe each other nothing.”“Anything,” Kyousuke corrected.“Whatever, you get what I’m saying right?”[1/2]
>>33526952She wanted in. Another person to split the loot with, but she was a heavy hitter. With Asuka down for the count for now and the kind of shit you might get in to in the very near future, she might actually be worth the investment.>”Hop aboard.”>”Later.”>”Nope.”((I will be making some breakfast, next post may be delayed.))
>>33526974>”Hop aboard.”business is expanding
>>33526974>>”Hop aboard.”I'm down. Worst case scenario, we just need to take a couple extra jobs. But we're a hired gun, and she's pretty good.
>>33526952>>“A Sister is a Level 3 Electromaster clone, born with weapon handlings, tactics and all sorts of useful things to know in a fight,” you started.>>“You going somewhere with this?”>>Now she was the one asking.>>“They’re worth only 180,000 yen,” you replied, “Don’t rate yourself too highly Toshino.

>>33526974"Sure.Does that mean I'd need to pay you CASH to babysit again?"I really want to know what happened
>>33526974>”Later.”She doesn't seem the type to be able to do subtle, which is what most of our jobs actually call for.
>>33526952>“そう.”>Nunotaba moved and kissed Sagara.>“Consider us over then,” she finished.NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHe actually had a girlfriend.And it was second-best-canon-girl.And we ruined it.Also,>"Hop aboard."Kyouko's a huge bro, and she may well be imouto material.
>>33526952Sagara you lucky dog. Or is it poor bastard? When it's Nunotaba, it could go either way.
>>33526974I propose we start calling her "meatshield". She did seem to be such a big fan of our names.
>>33527128> imouto materialDon't you dare tell her that.
>>33527213Telling her that would ruin the fun.But it doesn't make it any less true.
>>33526974> Hop aboardIt was inevitable.
>>33527043>legit mobster.Here hoping. The godfather Academy city edition sounds amazing.
>>33526974>>”Hop aboard.”Spill your secrets, any known enemies your bringing into the group?
>>33527684Yeah. We already know she's got magician troubles. We discussed it before the job.
>>33527702>correcting someone who was correctPlease stop.'Spill you are secrets...' doesn't make any sense.Honestly, is it really that difficult?
>>33527752I hope you're doing that on purpose.
>>33527752Pretty sure he was referring to >any known enemies YOU'RE bringing into the group
>>33527799>>33527859I was intending to show that he could at least be consistent in his mistake-making, yes.
“You’re not very smart are you Toshino?” you started.“I get that a lot yeah,” she didn’t dispute it, “Why?”“We’re still neck deep in it,” Kyousuke elaborated, “You’re jumping on a sinking ship.”“You’re the only one who doesn’t a give a shit about what I am,” Toshino spoke to you, “And that Kaoru chick too I guess. I don’t have too many options here. If you guys steal shit, do shady jobs for a living? Well it’s not like I was doing any good myself.”“Whatever, hop aboard Toshino,” you just waved her over, “And now as my first order as leader, tell me how you lost your panties to Mishka and Index.”“Hey, I ain’t following no stupid order like that,” she protested, “Besides, what are you going to do? Kill me?”“I thought about it,” you joked, “If that’s what it takes.”“If,” she smiled, “It’s Kyouko by the way.”“Big Poppa Kyril.”She shook her head. Everyone else laughed. That drew in heaven Canceller who pretty much kicked you all out of Asuka’s room. Well, he tried kicking you out but you didn’t let go of Asuka’s hand. You were never letting go.Episode 53 End.

You know, at this point, the Problem Children are likely just as well-known for high risk rescue ops as they are for Ocean's Eleven style heists. Getting the job done no matter what, but killing only when necessary. I think PC is certainly making a name for itself, in both good and bad ways.

>>33528219I'm not the guy you're replying to, but I believe the answer is HELL YEAH, MOTHERFUCKER
You are Kongou Mitsuko, and you are happy. Why? It was simple. You had just been accepted in to the prestigious Tokiwadai Middle School in a certain academic city. Yes, you were going to Academy City. You were going to reunite with your old friend, Kudou Asuka, and what a glorious reunion it shall be. The past year had been hard, and boring, but that hadn’t compared to the majority of this summer. You had spent the better part of it preparing to transfer. For that you had spent the majority of it abroad. It would not do to fall behind now. Right now, you were aboard flight TG640 bound for Japan. You’d then have to take a connection to enter Academy City proper but that was but a minor trouble.While the flight was only so long, you didn’t feel like napping, even in first class seats. Thankfully the plane has levelled off and you were clear to use a personal electronic device on board now. There weren’t that many other passengers in first either, seeing as there wasn’t that many seats in the first place. You were sitting in the pair of seats on the starboard side, by the aisle. To your right was a middle-aged man in a suit. His hair was black and his eyes were closed. Somehow you think he wasn’t asleep even if his face was tired. On your left was a pair of seats, separated from you by an aisle, was a woman in a summer dress. The woman had short, fair brown hair and was looking worriedly at you, or at least in your direction. You think she was trying to see out of the window to be honest.>Offer to swap seats with the woman>Start a conversation with a woman
>>33528314>>Start a conversation with a woman

>>33528314>Start a conversation with a woman
>>33528359>Also, what would we even want?More little girls. A whole herd of them. We can move to the Pampas and become a loli rancher.
>>33528401A Certain Aogami Quest when?
>>33528314>Start a conversation with a womanShe ain't getting this seat.
Taking lolis that don't belong to us is fine and all but I hope the next job is something different. Don't wanna get pigeonholed as just a loli liberator.Maybe a rob a bank or train.
>>33528314Oh, look, it's best girl!>Start a conversation with a womanDoes she want your seat? If so,>Offer to swap seats with the woman
>>33528359I don't know what we want. We've hired ourselves out for murder, theft, espionage, ̶k̶i̶d̶n̶a̶p̶p̶i̶n̶g̶ liberation, and we've gained lolis, favors, explosives, and money.
>>33528414The world is not yet ready.
I wish to unleash Aogami upon Esper Quest.
>>33528491He'd make a great recurring villain.
>>33528429I'd rather get out of the biz. Or go back to doing stuff that ends with people owing US favors. Debt sucks. Do we still owe Toulour/THIEF?
>>33528432Actually, I believe the only thing we've definitely said we want in character is power, come to think of it.
>>33528556No, we must go further. We can't leave until we're villians who are no better than a piece of shit.
>>33528446>shotas>being femaleu wot
>>33528603There's also the part about the "weak albino", which is referring to Accelerator.So yeah.
>>33528584So, we're Science Side Thor?We haven't really acted on that motivation at all though. We haven't even started looking for experience points.
>>33528630The only experience points we need are in the blowing shit up route.
>>33528630Yeah, but we should have cleared out our debts, so we should definitely get started with that next thread.
>>33528665get some short com radio headsets, no more waifu in the crossfire if it can be helped
>>33528599NoooOOOoooo!11!1We have a little sister to watch out for now.I think Kyril should pursue a degree in physics. Either working with rockets and aerodynamics directly, or astrophysics
>>33528584>Actually, I believe the only thing we've definitely said we want in character is power, come to think of it.When? And why? Was it when teacher ask us why we kill? Dont Remember the answer as well
I can't remember the last time we reached bump limitnight of a million samefags doesn't count.
>>33528706That's actually way back in the earlier threads. When Asuka asked us about dreams.
>>33528718Besides then I don't think we ever did>>33528726Oh yeah
>>33528706Asuka asked us what we wanted to do in the future. The only answer we could give was about getting stronger. It was also mentioned we kind of enjoy our violent and criminal activities, so really, Kyril is probably someone who would be normally considered a bad person.
>>33528771we're a lovable rogue
>>33528771Yeah, but we're on the nicer side of the scale where this fucking city is concerned, so it works out.
>>33528782That'd be a better consolation prize if we weren't on the weaker side. We gotta meet up with Teacher to learn martial arts, practice our TK, finish that god damn book, which is all pretty reasonable assuming nothing really bad happens.
Would it be inappropriate if you were to say she had a coquettish smile? It was disarming to say the least. It looked incongruous on a woman her age. She definitely was old enough to be your mother at any rate, even if her youthful look was deceiving. Truly she was a woman of the world to be all these things. Thus naturally, you talked to her.“Excuse me, am I in your way?” you asked.Her laugh was rather motherly, if you had anything to say to it.“Ufufufu, not at all young lady,” she answered, “I’m just worry about Shamu-nii over there.”Shamu-nii?“He’s my older brother,” she gestured to the man sitting next to you, “He had an accident in Hong Kong and we flew back to Thailand to get him treated but well, it looks like we need to go to Academy City after all. It’s a bit spur of the moment so we didn’t get to sit together.”“Oh I am so sorry, would you like to trade seats?” you offered.“Oh no, s’all good,” she denied cheerfully, “Miss, uh.”“My apologies, I am Kongou Mitsuko. It is an honour to meet you.”“Kudou Junko,” she bowed to you in turn, “Nice to meetcha’ too Mitsuko-chan.”Uwah, she was skipping straight to being familiar? Well there was nothing wrong with that, probably.“My brother’s Fujimoto Shiro, but we just call him Shamu-nii,” she continued happily.The man beside you grunted. You think he was annoyed. That and he was paying attention to your conversation. Before either of you could continue chatting, you were interrupted by a hiss. Several of them in fact. Looking down the aisle towards the tail, you saw them slithering out from under the curtain. They were snakes, King cobras to be precise. They reared up, hissing as their tongues tasted the air around them.>Gasp>Scream>Panic>Do not panic oh who are we kidding? PANIC
>>33528810>assuming nothing really bad happensSomething bad always happens especially in this stupid ass city
>>33528764We have hit autosage at least once before. Don't remember when though. Probably a thread where a lot of dice rolls were involved.
>>33528823>>Do not panic oh who are we kidding? PANIC

>>33528833>>33528864Now that I think about it, has anything good ever happened in this city? Has AC ever done a nice thing? Ever?
>>33528889It gave a bunch of kids superpowers and let them live in a mostly merit-based society.While quietly funding them according to ability, but whatever.
>>33528889It tried to give superpowers to small children.
>>33528889The people in this very interlude are going to AC to cure an illness or something. That's good!

>>33528889There's little tiny robots that clean the sidewalks And good Coffee
So...No ones mentioned it yet, so I just want to remind everyone.These are the people that killed our mom.And they are coming to AC.
>>33528913>merit-basedIt's really not. People only level up if Academy City wants you to level up. Level 0s fail because it's too expensive to level them and their abilities aren't worth it (and some of them won't grow at all regardless).
>>33528889They give free range for wild experimentation and support your right to clone a loli twenty thousand times, and I'd say that's something special for the world, however it turned out.
>>33528957Cute AC Fact: The drum robots used to be shaped like dogs, but little kids kept petting them and riding them, so they changed the shape.
>>33528970Why is it wrong to not give money to people who don't have potential? The only thing wrong there is not telling them to fuck off and leave the city.Maybe harvest them for organs or something. Worthless beasts.
>>33528967Implying they aren't already here.>>33528991They made it easier for them to ride yes.
>>33529002Oh. Right. Kongou already moved in.
>>33528994You need to drink some tea, Kihara-kun.
>>33528994Senator Armstrong pls goBut leave Bestream Sam
>>33528967I've skipped a lot of threadsDo they have any reason to care about Torikov? And are they related to Asuka cause that sounds like drama waiting to happen.

>>33529125Thread 49 interlude is what you're looking for.
>>33529125Just guessing, but I'm pretty confident Junko is her mom and Shiro is her uncle.
>>33529019>>33529068>>33529144In his defense, though, I've had something in my eye for maybe a few hours now and it's really pissing me off. I could kill someone for this. I can't imagine how aggravating it must be to be this close, you only need one more research subject, and there are all these useless people walking around tantalizingly fresh for experiments, but you can't touch.
>>33529193Nah, Kihara's have plenty of research subjects. That's what they use Child Errors for.See, alot of the time parents will pay the initial tuition, drop off their kid, and then fuck off forever (AC is an independent nation technically and it's not like Japan is going to take the kids back). Now the kids are living off the city's dime in orphanages. No parents to care if they happen to have their brain cut open leads to a very happy Kihara.
>>33529193I wasn't taking shots at anybody. I think>>33529144 should be on our business card
You were calm but you gasped. You were composed but it was a cute snake. You were a lady so you didn’t panic, outwardly. Ladies did not act hysterical, not even faced with one of the most venomous snakes in Asia. Besides you think they did look cute, in a way. Not as cute as Ekaterina though it still didn’t change that there were motherfucking snakes on the motherfucking plane.“Oh hooh, so Mitsuko-chan has seen that movie too huh?”Did you just say that out loud?One of them swayed back, and faster you could blink it struck. Well it would have struck, if an hand hadn’t clamped down firmly on it. You could its fangs, bared and dripping of venom. It seemed Fujimoto-san had gotten up and managed to stop it from sinking in to you. With a snap, the snake’s neck was broken. So was your heart.The other snake was diced up, minced up in a way you could not even begin to describe. How did that one die? Why was Kudou-san still smiling? Wait, wait, Fujimoto-san just pulled a hand gun from his suit. It had those long tubular extensions you see in movies, the one that made silly thwip noises. He crushed the snake he killed underfoot, always the while grumbling about scouts and vanguards or whatnot.“Go get ‘em Shamu-nii,” she cheered him.Off he went, trailing blood. Oh dear you were so confused. Not that you let it show of course. It would not do at all if you were to appear so. The plane banked unnaturally starboard.“Hey, hey, Mitsuko-chan, want to play detective?” she asked you now, “Sort of like Conan or Holmes.”>”I, Kongou Mitsuko am up to the challenge!”>”Kudou-san what is going on here?”
>>33529244Man, that's terrible. Kyril's mom coulda got him killed and the quest would have never started.
>>33529283>>”I, Kongou Mitsuko am up to the challenge!”We so got this.
>>33529283>”Kudou-san what is going on here?”Kudous pls
>>33529283>”I, Kongou Mitsuko am up to the challenge!”Kongou Mitsuko: GIRL DETECTIVE Book #1 The Mystery of Too many fucking snakes on this plane
>>33529283>”I, Kongou Mitsuko am up to the challenge!”There is nothing a lady can't overcome!
>>33529287He would have died in the name of SCIENCE. Fair trade.
>>33529283>>”I, Kongou Mitsuko, am up to the challenge!”
>>33529341Have we asked if she was related to our friend yet?
>>33529362Pfffff, no.That could be spoilers, anon.
>>33529283>”I, Kongou Mitsuko am up to the challenge!”Let's do this!
>>33529283>Guns>On a planeThis can only end well.
>>33529631They're probably just 9mm
>>33529631Don't worry about it, in the event of a clusterfuck we have the best possible power for saving the plane.
>>33529649Does she have a power? She's heading to Academy City.do peopel have powers before getting there??
>>33529631I hope you're talking about people thinking about terrorism, and not explosive decompression.That doesn't exist.
>>33529662She's just transferring from another school in AC, she spent some time abroad.Or she's coming from an institute outside of Japan, AC doesn't develop every single Esper in the city proper.
“Ohohoho, of course,” you answer, “I, Kongou Mitsuko, am up to the challenge!”She clapped her hand twice, seemingly happy with your decision. Well you suppose that was a good thing, as she turned around to rummage from her luggage.“Now the mystery is this.”She produced a map of the plane!?!?“Someone has killed the pilot,” she started ominous, “and the poor passengers on board haven’t a clue. Oh no, the only clue we have is that it’s from the venom of a king cobra. What do we do?”You weren’t sure whether this was something she thought up on the spot or was just using a similar situation to get you to not pay attention to the king cobra corpses in the aisles.“Uh, shouldn’t we look at the passenger manifests?”“But this Airbus A380 has 507 passengers, how are we even going to narrow down the list?”She had a point there. Think Kongou Mitsuko, think. Killing the pilot had many effects. One of them is indirectly assassinating someone else. Thus it wasn’t a sure fire way of determining who the culprit was. Their motives were too many. If someone snuck some king cobras on board, how would they do it? Wouldn’t snake handling be expensive?“Wait, we search through the passenger’s belongings,” you answered, “We look for some anti-venom or something like that.”“Oh hoh, a very smart suggestion,” Kudou-san agreed, “It just so happens that king cobra anti-venom is made to order. If they were going to have something then it must be made from a mixture of alcohol and turmeric root. Very good Mitsuko-chan. My daughter must be so happy to have a friend like you.”Wait, now that you thought about it, she did share the same surname as your friend. Could it be? While you wanted to ask her more, you felt so very tired. So tired in fact that the next thing you knew the plane had landed and that Kudou-san and Fujimoto-san had disembarked.
>>33529754Did Kongou just get magicked?
Interlude End. We resume next week. Probably after Esper Quest runs.https://twitter.com/BoredofDirectorAngel Fall. You can’t run, you can’t hide. Who is going to save you now? When writefag and /tg/ meet, the story begins.Questions? Comments? I have some of my own.Hopefully forgetting that STUDY put stuff on the Endymion wasn’t too unfair for you. If it was I apologise. That Nat 1 though. Still, Nat 1s don’t kill people. They just start new story arcs!
Aww shit nigga Blue Exorcist
>>33529789Yes, refusing to play would have also resulted in magicked sleep.One more thing, would you like a breakdown of what would or could have happened if you chose differently for this thread specifically?
My only question is can somebody have died on this mission?
>>33529842Sure. Though i'm about to hit the hay, so i'll probably check it out in the archive tomorrow. I'd be interested to read it though.
>>33529842Usually I would say that's a horrible idea, but we're pretty chill, and nobody died, so it's probably ok.Were we supposed to have investigated what Study sent to the Endymnion and some how disabled it?
>>33529842>Do I want a breakdown?Yes. Always yes. There is no quest in the history of quests that I don't want a breakdown of.
>>33529810>Probably after Esper Quest runs.On an entirely unrelated note, did Stiyl summon Innocentius on July 20, or July 21?Because I've just realized that 3000 degrees Celsius is ridiculously hot.
thanks for running and archived
>>33529930Ah, nevermind, I found it. I must've overlooked it before. It was the twentieth
>>33529864Plenty. Janie, Asuka, the retrieval team and yourself, just from this set up alone.>>33529871A lot goes back to the prep and lead up to the assault. You could have been on hand to prevent the whole missilepocalypse if you led the retrieval team yourself regardless of whether you forgot about the thing on the Endymion or not. Other than that let's go down the choices.You could have gotten surrounded just waltzing in. Of course you took the high ground.Breaching early could have risked the retrieval team. Doing nothing could have endangered the girls later.Now this is where I was slightly disappointed no one suggested combining TK with high explosives creatively. Running and gunning could have increased Parkour TK exp but it was risky. Mining the approach was the safe route.All the rockets attempts multi-tk. Curving successfully might have lead in to mass acceleration but you still got some exp for that anyway. Manual aim does nothing obviously.Killing the clone was the easy way out. Justifiable too. Telling Sagara to use his own discretion is the same as killing the clone. Letting the city burn was the end of Season 1.Hacking, I'm not going to spoil that.Skipping town leads to extra-national adventures with Teacher. Also Jason Bourne style shenanigans. Asuka would also recover slower.You could have left Asuka but that would have torpedoed your relationship. Hanging together is coercive and probably wouldn't lead to Kyouko's thing.That's pretty much it though. Kyouko's choice was obvious.>>33529930Probably the 20th. Memory is not too good. I recall Touma goes to school after he meets Index and she leaves him. Comes back and finds her slashed up in front of his dorm and then finds Stiyl.
>>33529810>Probably after Esper Quest runs.Is it really wise to make your schedule around the quest of a guy who has no fucking clue when he plans to run?
>>33529919Endymion intel could have prevented the missilepocalypse.>>33530091Well I don't know my schedule in advance most of the time anon. I run when I can. If he doesn't, I will, regardless of what happens.
>>33530089>Skipping town leads to extra-national adventures with Teacher. Also Jason Bourne style shenanigans.Is this still a possibility later? Please say yes
>>33530123One more question, does AC jail have liquid or bar soap?
>>33530156we still have those free plane tickets anon...
>>33530072I dislike you because your opinion is crass and rude, sir. HMPH!>>33530091Anon really does have a point, I think.However, I'd know whether or not I'd be able to run that day relatively quickly after waking up, so I'd just send a message out via twitter.
>>33530089>Now this is where I was slightly disappointed no one suggested combining TK with high explosives creatively.I came super late but I was considering the idea when I was catching upSo Coach did we do good? On a scale from 1-We're going I Disney World?
>>33530176I can't help how I feel about her anon, she was one of the reasons I dropped the Index animu
>>33530187>We're going I Disney World?Should be We're going To Disney World?
So we got Uiharu in a shitload of trouble? Glad we aren't skipping town or she'd be proper fucked.
>>33530187Disney world. Always Disney world
>>33530212Still, there's no reason to use such harsh language in your filenames! And you might consider thanking her for that, magic is crazy asspulls galore
>>33530156All in due time.>>33530160There's plenty of choice in prison. They off bars and bottles of liquid soap. A shame they're bigger than your head and lubricated such that they are practically frictionless.>>33530187Rejoice, you're an accidental hero. Rate that on your silly ill-defined scale.
>>33530259Thanks for writing! Raildex is my favorite LN.
>>33530259>silly ill-defined scaleWhat's wrong with that?Also, crappy translations are pain.
>>33530229Well There's Disney World and then there's Didney Worl>>33530259>Rejoice Fuck>Accidental Hero Yay? Secret agent Kyril when?>ILL Defined ScaleWhy I'd never
>>33530243that city was built on asspulls
>>33530296It's not a Likert scale for one. Or any other good scales which have justifiable and arguably quantifiable increments. It's the kind of shit I get whenever I run user-studies.
>It'd be a shame to have to compete.>implying I wouldn't just participate in both at the same time>implying most people wouldn't do the same
>>33530336I feel like you're using double-entendre here- and not the lewd kind.And I approve.>>33530376>it'd be a shame to have to compete Are we going to have to wrestle, Bored-sempai? Because I don't have a luchador mask
>>33530316Forgot mah pic>>33530360Out of pure unadulterated and dangerous curiosity what would've happen if we chose to be a giant Tick aka Vampire?
>>33530410No, it's just I don't want to be distract. That's all. So don't take this the wrong way okay?>>33530419It wouldn't be an Academic City Quest then. Besides you'd die to Deep Blood very quickly.
>>33530462>Besides you'd die to Deep Blood very quickly.I find this incredibly Hilarious everybodies reaction would be priceless
>>33530462>THIS TIME, ON VAMPIRE QUEST>You finally found that chick that smells yummy>you bite into her succulent neck and...>die>THE ENDI'm just a little cranky because I'm having trouble filling out mah random encounter tables. the only cosplayers I've come up with thus far are tusken raiders and sisters of battle Also I need to come up with new mediocre super-villains
>>33530520>Mediocre Recurring Super-VillainsTeam Rocket... The answer I always Team Rocket
>>33530520a lame ass vigilante that means well but you end up having to rescue him and clean up his messes
>>33530520An Evil Genius, twist, he's a secondary school kid.Money the Mask, rich industrialist that just throws money and things happen. Despite that he could never buy happiness, or love.A Gentleman Cambrioleur, he keeps getting framed for everything because of his flashy thefts and upstaging your investigations
>>33530520AC is full of schools, and all of those schools have bullies. We must teach every last one the error of their ways.
>>33530562Team Rocket, eh... OH, anon, you're a freakin' genius.>>33530586This is also good, and I have just the idiot in mind.I'll name them after you, Anon, in your honor.>this is definitely not an excuse to weasel my way out of coming up with an actual name>>33530635>CambrioleurI won't even pretend to know what that means
>>33530665The Dark RevengerThinks he's batman meets the Punisher but he's actually AquamanBoom bam done you won we can go home now threads over guys. Good work everybody

>>33530754Oh god.Now I've got the giggles.>>33530753Oh, Scooby Doo! Good almost idea, Bored-sempai!
>>33530778I was thinking Spirou et Fantasio meets Tintin but that works too I guess.
>>33530778>Academy City held in mild annoyance by the emergence of... THE PUZZLER! Petty vandal and misdemeanor mastermind!What weighs 7 ounces and is very deadly?A sparrow with a machine gun
>>33530778The Venture Family Brock Samson included.Look deep into your soul you know you want this
>>33530801I'm just teasing you because it's 2 in the morning and I'm sleep-deprived and I vaguely recall you using some sort of offensive slur or something earlier in the thread.
>>33530864>2 in the morning>Not 3 in the morning East Coast Best coast
>>33530825But how much does the machine gun weigh, anon?Oh, cat stuck in a tree! duh.
