...Before anything else, what does Wendy think about about working for you?Wendy shrugs. "...Doesn't matter to me what you do. We'll be working with each other for the Prophet shit anyway." She turns towards Mami, then back at you, before continuing. "Prima'd - Priestess would like to work with you and the Ninth in the future and she wants me to get a feel for how you run." She nods here, as if to herself. "...Be nice to have that Church shit on someone else's shoulders for a bit, though," she adds after another pause.Huh. Well, that's true enough.You lean back on your chair, careful not to show the surprise on your face as you stare at Wendy, then back at Mami. This...well, you weren't expecting this. You thought it'd be just working together with the Church to bring Oriko down, but them actually sending key members to work with you directly? And not just anyone, but Wendy Cooldown yourself. Someone that you'd been involved with, long ago, before the amnesia attacks started. Back when you only answered to a name coined by a former Warmaster who made a game out of fucking other magical girls and collecting their skulls for her throne.
>>33981759As soon as Wendy made her pitch - its delivery sullen and monotonic in her usual way - you found yourself poised to refuse. She was a part of your past. The past that you'd much rather forget about, even though life still sent reminders screaming your way, in the form of crazy magical girls hell-bent on seeing you dead. The person she fell in love with was a different person, a person who drank away her problems as much as she shot them to death. Someone who never really cared about anyone but herself, and even then, seemed obsessed only about where the next bottle of whisky was, how many painkillers left in the tamper-proof canister before she had to steal more, and just how many Magical Girls she could brutally kill with only half a magazine left in her oversized handcannon of choice at the time.There was also Midori. You made a choice, then. Even when Wendy started appearing in your dreams, alive and vital even though you thought at the time that she was indeed dead - you even made her a promise to do things right this time - you chose Midori. The green-haired Callidus that threw herself into hell just to save you. Sure, in your defense, you didn't really know if Wendy was actually alive, or simply a figment of your tormented imagination - but you still chose.Anyone in your place would refuse. Keep the relationship professional. Work on bringing Oriko in for all the sins she'd committed, and then part ways amicably. Move on with your being a watch-wearing dildo and her doing...well, whatever cultists do, really. Go knock on doors and ask people if they had a bit of time to know about the Blessed Lady, shit like that. All you had to do was turn her down.[1/2]
>>33981776And yet...Here was someone who loved you at your worst. At your most despicable worst. You're not going to pretend you remember everything from those bad old days, but you can infer reasonably, at least, from everything that carried over from then to now. Sayaka's hatred of you, while simmering down to a prickly rapport, is one of those clues. A constant, if massively-weakened unwillingness for all but the most basic of hygiene - and yes, you still remember wearing your costume for days, even weeks at a time until you are literally forced into a shower and made to re-transform for a fresh one. Your vices, many as they are. Kyoko's eagerness to check if she'd angered you at any way, as if considering her friendship with you a frail, easily-broken one.And of course, your immediate and snap-reflex for murder. For violence. Not an eagerness for fighting, or pugilism, or testing out your skills against others in combat - but murder. The violent taking of others' lives. Something that you had long before Pinky pressed the Golden Desert Eagle in your hand.Here was someone who saw all that and still loved you. Just like Mami did. Just like Midori did.And, a traitorous thought whispered in your mind, just like Iori did.Did Wendy deserve being turned away after all that? She even helped you rescue Misaka - and that was after Midori did that thing during the meeting. She acted professionally enough that she set aside all of that to focus on what's important. ...You doubt you'd have done the same, actually, if you were in her place, watch-wearing dildoness be damned.Maybe this would try and help things, you decide, between the both of you. You're not banking on this completely healing your relationship, or even bringing it back - but if it at least helps her get over you by being colleagues, at least, then that'd be fine. Maybe even friends, although that's probably wishful thinking on your part.[2/3]
>>33981785Taking your official watch-wearing dildo pen, you sign your name on the dotted line on the contract. You stamp your official watch-wearing dildo stamp on the contract itself a moment later, before closing the folder on the entire thing and holding it out to Wendy."...You're in?" Wendy's eyes widens by the slightest bit as she takes the contract from you. "Really? This isn't you just fucking around?"...What? No. Of course not. She can check your signature, that's official, that is. It's got the stamp and date and everything, too.She does so, and after a moment, she nods. The miniscule change in her facial expression eradicated completely, reverting back to its previous emotionless impassivity. Mami on the other hand is smiling her small, knowing smile, but nothing else other than that.""Cool," is what your ex says after a moment's pause. She glances at the blonde at her side, nods once more, and then looks back at you before speaking again. "...Ground rules. Don't fuck me over, don't have me cleaning floors or someshit. I've been doing this way too long for that bullshit.""Jade's with me - personally with me. She's in the contract to keep this tidy. I'd also like to keep Bloodysunday working primarily under me. Former Eighth, think it'd be more comfortable for both of us. You're free to use her however you want, just don't yank her out from under me without letting me know first."...A lot of ground rules, huh. You turn to Mami, who merely shrugs with another smile, this one a bit guilty and apologetic, but also encouraging at the same time. As if to say 'just go along with it'. "I'd also like to get some idea beforehand of where you want to assign me. ...And your own ground rules, too, shit I have to remember. I don't want you pointing a gun to my head because I used the wrong set of chopsticks or something." Wendy finishes as you turn back towards her. "Warmaster." She adds, your title almost an afterthought.[3/4]
Haha! etc etc.
>>33981803She's really asking for a lot right out the gate, huh? The ink's not even dry on the contract."Wendy-san is like that, Chiaki-san. Efficient, if she can be a bit blunt about it sometimes." Mami cuts in here, after politely giggling into the back of her hand. "Um, anyway, Warmaster? We do have ground rules for Wendy-san, right? And do you have any idea at the moment for where you're going to assign her?"Seems like you have to come up with some ground rules for Wendy on the spot, here. Assignment can probably be later, maybe after you've talked to Mami about it.How do you react?Yeah, I have some ground rules for you. (Write-in)I only have two ground rules here. Number 1, don't fuck it up. Number 2, remember Number 1. Otherwise, welcome aboard.Have Mami give her a copy of the Magical Girl Primer for the ground rules, and then go immediately to assigning her to work under someone.
>>33981817>I only have two ground rules here. Number 1, don't fuck it up. Number 2, remember Number 1. Otherwise, welcome aboard.
>>33981817[X]Have Mami give her a copy of the Magical Girl Primer for the ground rules, and then go immediately to assigning her to work under someone.Part of me wants to assign her to work under Midori, but that probably would not end well.Seriously though, we should have a talk with Midori about both professionalism and Wendy before things get all screwy. Best she hears that we hired Wendy from us.
>>33981817>[x]I only have two ground rules here. Number 1, don't fuck it up. Number 2, remember Number 1. Otherwise, welcome aboard.What constitutes a fucking up, you'll know when you can no longer find rest of your legs under your knees.

>Yeah, I have some ground rules for you. (Write-in)1) When I say run, run2) When I say hide, hide3) When I say fight, fight like all the witches of the worlds are after your ass
>>33981817>[x]Have Mami give her a copy of the Magical Girl Primer for the ground rules, and then go immediately to assigning her to work under someone.That someone being your Equerry Miki Sayaka. They already know each other and Sayaka's enough of a dildo to trust her on this one.
>>33981817[X]Yeah, I have some ground rules for you. (Write-in)Just one, we have exclusive rights to determine the fate of the Golden staff and the about to be previous owner of said staff.
>>33981871What was the story with Sayaka and Amber again anyway? I vaguely recall there being something there?Is Sayaka going to have a talk with us soon about the cult?
>>33981817[X]I only have two ground rules here. Number 1, don't fuck it up. Number 2, remember Number 1. Otherwise, welcome aboard.
>>33981817>I only have two ground rules here. Number 1, don't fuck it up. Number 2, remember Number 1. If Hanegawa tries to start up something again you tell Mami or me. Otherwise, welcome aboard.
>>33981817[x]Yeah, I have some ground rules for you. (Write-in)"First, read the Magical Girl Primer. For the most part, abide by the Codex Puella. Second, I expect professionalism in the workplace; you got a problem, talk it out behind a closed door, not in the open. Third, my Equerry's orders are to be followed as if they came from me. Last, if it looks like I forgot something, don't hesitate to remind me; I probably DID forget it."
>>33981895tl;dr: Amber doesn't feel too happy about being part of the whole cult business, so she meets up with Sayaka and drops hints about wanting to be saved by the Blueberry Bitch.
>>33981817>>33981905>or mamiha, no.>>33981913I vote for this, but keep in mind Midori broke this one already.>I expect professionalism in the workplace; you got a problem, talk it out behind a closed door, not in the open.
How close are Wendy and Pinky anyway? Do we need to worry about Pinky learning anything/everything that Wendy learns about us?The three stooges are the obvious thing we are currently keeping from Pinky which we have to worry about, but even just in general, is this going to be an issue?
>>33981817>[x]I only have two ground rules here. Number 1, don't fuck it up. Number 2, remember Number 1. Otherwise, welcome aboard.
>>33981817[X]Yeah, I have some ground rules for you."Read the MG Primer, be professional, Follow my Equerry's orders, someone giving you a hard time? report it to me."In the event that the prophet is defeated, the Golden staff will become property of the 9th.
>>33981817>>33981905[X] I'll go with this.
>>33981937Yeah, though Midori obviously feels ashamed of it, and I presume we are going to have a talk about it sooner or later so I doubt thats going to be an issue again.Well, assuming Midori does not hear about Wendy first from general gossip and think we are essentially replacing her or something.
>>33981942Wendy probably trusts us more than Pinky, but dunno if Pinky might trick her into giving out information for whatever reason.I believe Pinky brought Wendy back after she died from the golden mask thing? Not much info on that. Dunno if this means Wendy would be closer to her or more suspicious, due to knowing what her cultists are like, how powerful she is, dying because of her in the first place, and possibly having a vague idea of her goals.
>>33981984Yeah, we need to talk to Midori as soon as we can, good thing we powered through that paperwork!
>>33981984Really? She seemed proud in trying to establish Chiaki as her property.
>>33982025As soon as she caught on that Chiaki didn't appreciate the shenanigans her pride did a 180 in to regret.
>>33982025We made our feelings on it fairly obvious afterwards, resulting in the lunch (breakfast?) we received not too long ago being sort of an apology.Pretty sure she knows she fucked up. If Mami did not have her on a literal leash behind the scenes there would have been blood according to a q&a.
>>33982025She probably felt proud in the moment, and probably still a little bit, but with some time and with everyone's reaction she can probably figure out it was a dick move.
>>33982025She apologised later.
>>33982025She struck me as someone who was more upset because they were caught pissing on the rug than someone that actually regrets what they did, nya.
>>33981817>Yeah, I have some ground rules for you.Don't touch golden weaponsDon't assume I remember anything not in the journalDon't kill any more people than we wouldRespect security protocolsground rules don't have to be super important, just good for keeping everyone on the level.
>>33982025She apologized it in the last (or the one before that?) thread and acted guilty and such.I figure she did want to "mark her territory" at the time, but after having time to think, realised that her actions were impulsive, unprofessional and stupid. And then the thing with the prophet trying to kill Misaka happened, which made things worse.
>>33982072This is pretty much the way I took that scene and what is most in line with how she's behaved so far. Anyhow, I only got one doodle done this week and another in progress one. I don't suppose anyone could post those? I can't because I no longer have free Wi-Fi in the office...
>>33982066>Don't touch golden weaponsVery much this.
I know it's a bit late for it, but can we remind Wendy and her cohorts to...not sacrifice anyone else to Pinky? This might be breaking the 4th wall, not sure if Chikai knows about it.
>>33982057I do think she is honestly sorry, but more about the fact that she made things more difficult for Chiaki in an already uncomfortable meeting.I don't think she is massively sorry about trying to give a public "statement" that Chiaki is with her now. Just the fact that she made that statement poorly and in a unncessarily dickish way.
>>33982048the shenanigans were fine: In just about any other circumstance they'd have been appreciated.Personally, Chiaki is fine with it. But in the Warmaster hat, "punishment" is called for. But lightly. We already left her behind when we went to save Misaka.
>>33981817>Yeah, I have some ground rules for you. (Write-in)No Golden WeaponsDon't go butting heads with MidoriDon't fuck up
Reminder that Homura did nothing wrong and Mami is a shit.
>>33981817[x]Have Mami give her a copy of the Magical Girl Primer for the ground rules, and then go immediately to assigning her to work under someone.[x]''Apart from that there is only one rule I would add: If you even as much as approach Midori closer then 5 feet range without my permission I will end you.''I feel like we should make this extra clear. And we should probably talk to Midori about this too, so she doesn't do anything stupid again.
>>33982123Nope. Chiaki has no idea that Wendy is sacrificing people to Pinky.
>>33982013>but dunno if Pinky might trick her into giving out information for whatever reason.Since Pinky brought Wendy back to life, shouldn't we also consider that Wendy might be magically bugged?An ability to listen in via Wendy's soul or Soul Gem, like the remote kill switch that some Incubators have in their Contracts?
>>33982134Also,> Remember that I am not the person you used to know.
>>33982137Right, we should talk with Midori after this. Partially to tell her in person about Wendy, but mostly because I finally want to learn IC about the goddamn Siberia. Its been WAY too long now.
>>33982140>we should probably talk to Midori about this too,we did that once, and Midori got a case of dumb and pulled that shit at the meeting.
>>33982110Hat-chan, go make friends with IT.Just tell them you love 40k.
>>33982144Actually I seem to recall pinky spesifically telling Chiaki how Wendy has been passing her sacrifices and how disappointed she was that Chiaki hasn't.I'mma go look it up.
>>33982141Yes, thank you! I'm hoping to be able to finish that one some time next week...
>>33982158No, actually we didn't talk with her about her case of dumb nor did we talk about Wendy working with us, don't be stupid.
>>33982169This anon is right, Pinky did mention this in passing.
>>33982169She did.Those soul gems she was munching on were tribute from wendy.
>>33982169If Chiaki knows, then I figure she should be more wary of Wendy.Also, should that not kinda turn the three stooges against Wendy, since Wendy is essentially supporting the "corrupted" Madoka, while Chiaki is trying to fix Madoka?
>>33982192Yeah but she's Decu's waifu.
>>33982180Would Chiaki remember it? With a memory filled with more holes than a bullet-ridden corpse, I'll honestly be surprised if she did.
>>33982192I get the feeling that they will withhold judgement first... unless they have additional insight to wendy's behaviour from previous loops.
>>33982144>>33982169Yeah, found it: >Where did Pinky get all these soulgems she's snacking on, anyway? >"Wendy, of course! At least SHE knows how to be grateful, and to be a nice person!" Pinky sticks out her tongue at you.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29796676/#p29799879
>>33982154Why exactly was she so vague the last few times again? Can't we just have a sort of timeskip moment or give Chiaki a transcript of the threads?
>>33982146That seems like a bit of a stretch, but maybe.
>>33982212Did anon remember it?
>>33982192Wendy is no more of a threat than Mami or Midori.
>>33982192We have only Pinkys word on that, Pinky might be fucking with Chiaki etc. Jesus fuck, who do you people always try shoehorn everything through meta as common knowledge?Just TRY for a minute to be in Chiakis shoes. Why the fuck would we suddenly take what Pinky says serious after she has been fucking with us for months?Stupid shit like this really grinds my gears.
>>33982227Hasn't it only been like a month since Siberia. It's a bit unfair to expect us to remember shit over a completely different time scale. I mean the soul gem eating thing was only like 2 days ago.
>>33982218Right, so no sacrificing Magical Girls.I'm pretty sure that the Codex Puella does not support that action.Do we bring it up now, with Mami here, or bring it up in private later?
>>33982240Miss quoted >>33982226
>>33982176No, we asked her not to pull a dumb beforehand, then she pulled a dumb.We haven't had time to talk about it SINCE, but she did apologise in passing.
>>33982219I think Midori was a bit mentally broken by the fact that her closest and only friend from her previous officio died in the barrier, and Chiaki did not push at the time.Since then, we havent really had a chance to talk about it in quite a while. Mostly I want to find out about the fragments, many of whom correspond to the three stooges, and the winged fragment which may be hiding in the empty mirror (I want to try and call her out).Also about Malal and Madoka reverting to herself and tricking Pinky with the GWs.
>>33982215I don't know if the stooges can offer any insight on Wendy, actually. Braids and Dildo came from Pre-Rebellion, and Murderface came from a timeline where we failed the procedure in Russia.
>>33982236Because as crazy as Pinky has been, she hasn't lied?And this was only a few days ago in-game.This isn't meta-knowledge, it's using in-character knowledge.
>>33982241First you read this >>33982236 and then you stop using meta knowledge you stupid motherfucker.
>>33982180Pinky says a lot of stuff.The important thing to remember is probably not to mention the stooges around Wendy.
>>33982227That... does nothing to assuage my fear.
>>33982257>Because as crazy as Pinky has been, she hasn't lied?so far as we know.
>>33982265She has no green hair.Or does she
>>33982227>>33982265Threadly reminder that Mami set us up to be killed by Kirlia by warning her we were coming, is judged an untrustworthy danger by whoever left our recordings, has lied to us and gotten our equerry and best friend to do the same, has an army a magical girls ready to kill or die for her, is rated a massive threat by our axe, controls what paperwork crosses our desk, and supplies enough of our food supply that she is potentially drugging us into trusting her irrationally (and she's feeding QB the same stuff). Christ, we apologized to her after she confessed to tipping off Kirlia. And she's not naive enough to think that bitch would do anything other than stab us. And we refer to her as "our blonde victory goddess". Whatever she's spiked our damn whiskey and pancakes with is some good shit.
>>33982257Through unreliable source for fucks sake. >Because as crazy as Pinky has been, she hasn't lied?Are you fucking serious? Even we know that even her memory is unreliable at best and suddenly we trust 100% what she says?Fuck you and fuck you twice for being THATGUY.
>>33982255Dildoes atleast might be able to analyse Wendy based on superiour experience (I get the impression that she is the "brains/knowledge"-aspect of the three stooges).But yeah, no idea if they have encountered her in previous timelines.
>>33982265I know, Anon, I know.
>>33982275Mami did nothing wrong.
>>33982275Yeah but until we have good IC reason we can't put her down like the dog she is.
>>33982257>And this was only a few days ago in-game.I'm pretty sure it's only been a day. The night we got back is when we fucked Midori.
>>33982236>>33982258>Told 2 days ago in-character by someone... ...important to us, who we've had a decent amount of interaction with>Meta knowledgeJesus fuck, do words not have meanings anymore?
>>33982273Well she does cosplay as Miracle Midori.Can't wait for her to find out who our girlfriend is.We need that conversation, sooner rather than later. Even moreso due to recent and recentish events.
>>33982275>is judged an untrustworthy danger by whoever left our recordingsNo, Malal's logs said she was an excellent asset on our side, but to be wary of crossing her and to be wary of how easily she gains people's trust.
Honestly I'm more concerned about a Fall of Midori Hanegawa happening and shit getting bad than Wendy. Green hair etc.
>>33982275Threadly reminder that you are full of shit.
>>33982279a)We know that Pinky wants to eat soul gems, because she asked us to give them some (we refused).b)Later, she was eating soulgems and said Wendy had given them to her.c)We know that Wendy apparently died, and yet has somehow returned to life, which generally requires intervention from a divine level entity.Not saying we should act like its a totally confirmed fact, but acting as though Pinky is totally untrustworthy is just as stupid as trusting Pinky blindly.IC, Chiaki has EVERY REASON to be fucking suspicious that Wendy did indeed give Pinky those gems to eat as payment for being brought back. She might be sympathetic, but that does not change the fact that this is NOT meta knowledge and that Chiaki SHOULD be wary.
>>33982166>>33982141IT department is too far away (as in whole other building, halfway across the city) and nobody in this country knows 40k. It's just not a hobby that's popular here, I think. Anyways, the only other drawing I managed to get done this week was one of Attarou's characters who I think turned out pretty nicely
>>33982308>>33982295I'm sure she has reasons, probably good ones for whatever she's doing, but I'd like to at least get let in on the grand plan, before we accidentally ruin it all somehow.
I was wondering if I could get some confirmation around the fact that it's only been 6-7 days since we got back from Siberia.
>>33982358Generously it's been about two weeks, but more accurately it's probably been about 10 days.Sorry about this kind of time discrepancy, guys. There's not much we can do about it, and I know it's asking a lot for people to remember stuff that should be fresh for Chiaki but was literally a year ago for everyone else.
>>33982330Dunno. While Midori has green hair, I tend to suspect she is more of a red (or is that green?) herring. We played from her POV and saw her thoughts, which were loyal to Chiaki, so I don't know how she could she could really be a traitor or somesuch.Though I guess there are options. Midori could be dead and the current one an imposter. Or we could fuck up our relationship and poison her against us in the future. Or something.Truthfully though, I think the green is more likely to be a warning about Yuma, the friendly neighborhood mind rapists.
>>33982258It's not meta-knowledge, you stupid shit, it's information that's known in-character and in-line with how she acted when she tried to eat Ayumu's Soul Gem and we saw her eating those other Soul Gems.Or are you saying that none of that really happened, that she wasn't serious? That our subordinate's Soul Gem wouldn't have been eaten if we had given it to Pinky?
>>33982342I hate grand plans. It was one of the few things that really bugged me about Malal. Also I am not sure if "good reasons" are the same for psychopaths as they are for normal people.
Rolled 7>>33982337Madge a coolest
>>33982375The funny part is watching people who just read through the archives (for whom all information is yesterday) argue with people who've forgotten things and start calling meta on stuff we really should have remembered.
>>33982358Probably closer to two weeks. We got back from Siberia, there was a day or two of downtime, Ruri mission which was about two days, some more downtime, the date, then Big Shell, then Midori, then rescuing Misaka. It's been, at most, a week and a few days
>>33982337This the one?
>>33982385Either this-timeline-Midori is radially different from previous Midoris (with the weird shit going down like Sayaka's Witch turning up, it wouldn't be surprising), or it refers to Yuma or someone else entirely.
>>33982375Geeze, that long? It can't be helped with Decu's work, but it gets hard to remember all this information after a while.
>>33982405Hasn't all the downtime been at most a single day so far.
>>33982342Fuck off. Mami is shit and should be killed as soon as possible. There can be no compromise she must be REMOVED.
>>33982419One of Wendy's entourage back at the hotel meeting had green hair. upsessn learning
>>33982405Adding on to that hasn't this entire quest so far only covered like 1.5ish months
>>33982419That's roughly correct.
>>33982459Er, mislinked. Meant to link>>33982449nya
>>33982423I'm trying to remember, anon, but this was like a year ago. We got back from Siberia and Midori was in sickbay. We talked to Kyubey, fell asleep in the office, then visited Midori again... Not sure if same day or after. Then there was housewarming and that means one day maybe two at this point. Then was Ruri which I seem to recall was two nights, but might have been more in narration. Then there was Malal flashback and the date, and that was one more night. Uh... Then... Big Shell? That was a single day? Not sure how long it took to get back. Then we came back and sexed up Midori (or Midori sexed up Chiaki) and that same night we had to rush off to rescue Misaka. This is literally only hours after that and what has happened over the course of a year is maybe... Five days? Seven?
>>33982436Now I want a REMOVE MAMI image like that Neco one.
About Mami...She would never do anything to activately hurt us. On the other hand, if she decides us dying will make us 'happier' she will tearfully execute us.
>>33982470>>33982476Putting to in universe timeline is perspective a lot of the character interactions so far seem completely crazy. Like it's only taken a week or so for Sayaka to star rolling back 6 months or so of hatred. Like shouldn't everyone be half thinking that this is just a phase at the moment.
>>33982436You're overreacting, she had the justified reasons to tell Kure. Otherwise, she's a very competent secretary who has our back. If she wanted to use us, then she why would she put our life in danger by telling Kure what was about to happen?
>>33982495You don't?The fuck is wrong with you?
>>33982476An unspecified number of days passed during/after Big Shell, implied to be a few.I think.>>33982499Yeah, that bugs me too, but at the same time NOT doing that would make it feel like there's no sense of progression or accomplishment in interacting. It's realism sacrificed for the sake of not making anon feel like it's pointless to try. Seems worthwhile to me.>>33982495You mean we don't? Although I didn't vote.
>>33982495I like wendy. But I like threesomes more.

>>33981820 >>33981843 >>33981849 >>33981863There are only two ground rules that you're going to give her - and it's the ones you have for yourself. Number 1 - don't fuck it up. Number 2 - remember Number 1. Other than that, she's welcome aboard the Ninth Officio Assassinorum. Along with the rest of her group, of course. Jade and...BloodySunday, is it? Yeah.Wendy nods in return, and it's here that a small smile curls the corners of her lips. "Cool," she says again, and despite the fact that her voice hadn't changed one iota from its usual sullen tones, for some reason you couldn't help but think that she was pleased by your answer....Maybe this is going to work out after all.Yeah. Maybe. You hope so.[+50 Wendy Points!]"...Anything else?" Wendy asks as she glances at Mami, then back at you. "Just that I have to get this to the High Priestess immediately, and I've got plans for lunch." She adds a moment later, as if to explain her rush.Mami shakes her head. "I don't have anything for Wendy-san at the moment, Warmaster. Well, maybe brief her a bit about Officio policy and sign the usual papers, but nothing that can't be held back for later. Unless you'd like to decide who she's being assigned to right now?"How do you respond?State that when the Prophet's dealt with, the Staff effectively becomes the Ninth's property.

>>33982491Oh, so having Mami do things that will passively hurt Chiaki is fine? Mami has always been covertly sabotaging our actions, from straight up lying to us about Wendy being dead to "acting" cold to us when she almost got us killed by ratting us off to Kirika. She is the greatest threat possible to the players and needs to go as soon as possible.
>>33982375I find it adds to Chiaki's amnesiac charm.Sometimes she genuinely does forget shit.
>>33982499Decu has some pretty big problems with pacing and the narrative is broken up with flashbacks constantly. I forgot to mention the Sayaka and Yuma flashbacks and I'm not even certain I remember how we segued into those and if they had an impact on time
>>33982518>Yeah, that bugs me too, but at the same time NOT doing that would make it feel like there's no sense of progression or accomplishment in interacting. It's realism sacrificed for the sake of not making anon feel like it's pointless to try. Seems worthwhile to me.Yeah that's true it is kind of funny though when you consider that it took Oriko maybe 2-3 weeks to find the golden staff and then build a cult of like 30-40 people if you count the suicide bombers.

Fortunately, the whole "Sayaka warms up to us over the course of a week after hating us for a year" bit isn't something that really hits you while you read it. It only makes you go "huh?" if you sit down and think about it.

If it's important, then you don't want to keep the High Priestess waiting, whoever she is.I'm voting we assign her to Mami, later on, but diplomacy is important. We don't want to assign her to ourself because we have history and don't want to send any mixed messages, plus we have a bad habit of letting our emotional attachments take priority in dangerous situations - which makes having people we care about around us a liability. We've already got plenty of them. Meanwhile, assigning her to Midori is a recipe for a sitcom - I wouldn't expect them to get along, and while I'd be happy to see them become friends, I'm not going to try and stage it by a work assignment that could backfire.
>>33982695Everyone believes us about Pinky, for their own reasons. And Chiaki has not disbelieved anything that Pinky has said, nor has Pinky lied.She's dangled the promise of information in front of us, but she hasn't lied in the interactions we've had with her.And while Chiaki doesn't trust or want to work for Pinky, she still believes Pinky's information.
Really, we need to sit both of them down together and talk about how frustrating our amnesia is, how angry we are that we spent so long broken, and how both of them helped us at different points.Midori needs to apologize to Wendy for the kiss, it was unprofessional and only hurt her feelings...Also, we need to sit down with our Equerry and remind her of a Hypothetical conversation we had just a few days before the meeting in the hotel.
>>33982732Well, we actually need to collect all 20 in order to fight Homucifer apparently, so we do need to collect them all.Whats more, Misaka at one point implied that our shield might eat the 20 of them once we have gathered all, so we pretty much need ownership.
>>33982540>[X] Assign Wendy to Mami.She'd already doing the job. Just keep her there

>>33982751That so blatant it hurts.
>>33982540>[x]Leave the decision for later. If it's important, then you don't want to keep the High Priestess waiting, whoever she is.Giving Wendy to Midori is stupid, why would you do that?
>>33982700Actually, I think it might be the best thing in the long run, but in the short run, it's basically lighting the fuse and then sticking the firework in our mouth.I don't think Chiaki should be planning long-term, if you know what I mean, and I'm sure that you do.
>>33982779Because the vast majority of people are stupid. Obviously.
>>33982772I feel like that would just get to the point where Midori doesn't really want to back down and Wendy doesn't really care.
>>33982540>State that when the Prophet's dealt with, the Staff effectively becomes the Ninth's property. This is non-negotiable.i never liked midori anyways

>>33982773you're conflating ninth ownership with ours.There's no point in giving ownership to the ninth if we're just going to have to steal them from the Ninth later.and diplomatically, calling it "custodianship" sounds better than "ownership"
>>33982540>[x]Ask Wendy to leave your office for a moment, confer with Mami in private for Wendy's assignment.>[x]Assign Wendy to Mami.
>>33982808More likely it would lock it away entirely.Wendy would hate us because we are basically turning this position into a joke by putting her under the control of our current GF.And Midori would hate us because we forced Wendy on her.
>>33982809How close was it?
>>33982808Laugh yourself till you cry, duhOn a sidenote, Wendy and Midori will have to communicate and work with each other anyway, so I doubt its not like they wont have any interaction
>>33982819Which would have won if the high priestess vote had not won?
>>33982809Are we also saying that we're keeping the Staff?Or was this vote one action only?
>>33982810>There's no point in giving ownership to the ninth if we're just going to have to steal them from the Ninth later.I don't think we need to worry about this. The Ninth ALREADY have them locked in the best vault they have available, and they still jump into our inventory at random.
>>33982518>green hair>knives of kitchen variety>knockers too big to be trueIs that Wendy gone full yan mode pretending to be Green Green? (I probably shouldn't like it as much as I do)
>>33982832The thing about assigning Wendy to Midori is that Midori doesn't actually really have much of a rank.From a practical point of view, she HAS recently begun assimilating into the ninth, which would make her a logical point of contact for other out of officio contacts.But at the same time, personal issues.>>33982859the ones that like us/want to fuck with us, sure.

>>33982797me too anon, I don't hate her but I think she get a little to much attention>>33982809could be worst, at least we didn't assign Wendy to Midori
>>33981785>>33981803Awww shit I'm late to the quest. Wait. How did recruiting Wendy even win the last thread? There were like tons of people who voted against that.
>>33982874>Saki YurikawaPlease tell me she shows up as a meguca>Captcha: lawslap ButHmm...
>>33982586This is the best picture.
>>33982876We already make enough retarded choices without Decu throwing in the blatantly retarded choices into the list. I'm actually kinda angry here, first time this has happened in a while, honestly... I'm actually looking forward to my meeting just so I have an excuse to step away from the thread
>>33982869The fact that she just joined herself is actually a good reason NOT to really assign new arrivals to her. How could she help them integrate, when she has not fully done so herself.But thats a moot point since the personal issue makes it so utterly insane the point that Chiaki should be fired for even considering it.Wendy should be assigned to someone of senior rank with no emotional conflict.
>>33982910Woah, Hat. Did the "assign Wendy to Midori" choice upset you that much?
>>33982893Plans have been considered.
>>33982910Yeah, I wish Midori had not been included in the list. She should not have been. It basically came out as somekind of "Pick this to fuck things up"-bait. Obviously every moron would vote for that.
>>33982912>How could she help them integrate, when she has not fully done so herself.They don't have to integrate: They're not here full time. But she does have a first hand view of learning to navigate and other information they'll need.And being asked questions she doesn't know the answer to yet will also help HER integrate better.
>>33982930And we would end up going downhill from there.
>>33982922Yes. It really did. Other anons have explained it better and I don't trust myself to do the same without sounding completely neurotic.
>>33982772So. About that hypothetical situation....How much sex did you say we would need to have?
Of course I just realized that assigning her to Mami will only help her build her shadow network of contacts which will inevitably destroy us. Still, if we have to die, I'd prefer it be at Mami's hand than anybody else's. At least there might be pancakes first.>itsNott evidenceI think the captcha is on Mami's side.
>>33982933If they are not here full-time, they should not have joined the ninth in the first place.Collaboration without joining was the option that LOST, and Wendy was recruited.
>>33982944>Sayaka hesitates. "One thing I did notice, though. All the setups like that I found? The...three-person setup?" She holds up a gloved hand, three fingers raised. "They have sex a lot. Like...a whole lot of it. AWOL lot." She frowns and shudders, as if visibly shaken from a memory. "Stumbled into one of their showers once, and...well. You know.">...She doesn't say.>Americans, huh?>"Americans." Sayaka nods sagely.>What do you do now?Most reasonable advice.
>>33982953Kill yourself Mami supporter.
>>33982703Pretty sure that is the opposite of what you are voting for, but ok.
>>33982910Kinda wish you did not have a meeting. We need every sane and smart person here right now.
>>33982977Also, it's likely that having sex with only one of them while the other's out will make that third left out person feel very unwanted. Could probably lead to Yandere level stuff, whether it be Midori or Wendy
>>33982809>FFF...missed the vote, but hey, outcome is ok-ish giving her to blueberry would be better
>>33982910 a pity that it made you fell this way Hat-chan also good luck with you meeting dood
>>33982874>Saki YurikawaHuh? Is that some guro manga? How bad is it (say, compared to Franken Fran) ?
We'll just have to see what mami has to say about it.
>>33983005Yeah. Sayaka would seem like the best of all possible options. Sayaka may be somewhat of a bitch, but she is competent, trustworthy and not emotionally entangled with the whole fucking mess. She is also our 2nd in command, so its not at all odd to hand Wendy to her. Might even help with the Amber situation, if Sayaka is in position to give Wendy orders.
>>33982943>>33982910Thats funny, I'm also leaving the thread now to cook something, because voting for the pairing of Wendy with Midori was just too stupid for the sake of stupid.That there are people here who have been following this quests as long as me would make such a dumb vote just for the sake of trolling makes me actually loose my faith in humanity.This is /b/-tier shit. Not something I expect to see on /tg/.
>>33982889Obviously there was tons+1 people voting for it.I was one of them.
Reminder that in the first Mami flashback Mami said herself that she found Sayaka to be very simple minded and extremely easy to influence and/or control so we shouldn't trust Sayaka either since she's pretty much a pawn for Mami already. The only one we can trust is ourselves.
>>33982889>There were like tons of people who voted against that.There were slightly more who voted for it.This is really simple anon.
>>33983039"did I do the right thing? Or am I just letting my personal curiosities about my past fuck with my decision making, here?"
Hat do you still do edits?
>>33983053Are people upset that decu provided a "assign Wendy to Midori" option, or that so many people voted for it?Or both?
>>33983056>The only one we can trust is ourselves.which one of ourselves? There are a lot of us, and some of us voted to put Midori and Wendy together.
>>33983056That would have some validity, but its broken by two words.Whiskey Pancakes.As easy as it is for Mami to manipulate Sayaka, its even easier for her to manipulate Chiaki.
>>33983056But Malal said the only person we could trust is Sayaka and we really can't trust yourselves.
>>33983078>trusting Malalyou done fucked up.
>>33982910>We already make enough retarded choices without Decu throwing in the blatantly retarded choices into the list.Is it really that awful?They are the same class thing that Midori is the leader of and have some issues to work out, seemed logical enough to me.For the other options meta-wise I don't trust Mami and don't see why she needs to work with Wendy, I can't imagine Sayaka and Wendy ever getting along, and assigning them to our self is the 2nd best option but would send the wrong message to Midori.
>>33983047Yeah, leaving for my meeting and closing Chrome. Don't wanna read today's thread anymore. >>33983074Both. Laters
>>33983074The option makes sense somewhat, they are both Calidii.And I'm personally upset because trolls and possibly samefags.
>>33983074Somewhat both.Its a fucking stupid option for many reasons (most already listed), so having it there in the first place kinda came off as a troll-bait.But ultimately it was the voters who chose to vote for that option.
>>33983053>>33983060More like there were tons of samefags.This is of course the part where the samefags show their righteous indignation and tell you how no one would never step so low.
>>33983090>Not trusting MalalIt's like you want the whole world to get destroyed.
>>33983077>>33983078We'll get through fine if we listen to dildoes.
>>33983095>Midori is the leader ofMidori isn't the leader: She's a physical instructor.Enishi is, IIRC, the Callidus Rank Leader
>>33983001This isn't always the case, sometimes people just don't feel like having sex all the times, and people's schedules/desires won't always line up perfectly.
>>33983095Midori isn't a Callidus leader. Like, at all. She's a trainer for newly-inducted Callidus. We had her pick between being Chiaki's secretary or being a trainer, and she picked the latter.
>>33983110There is a distinction between listening to, and trusting.
>>33982385>, I think the green is more likely to be a warning about Yuma, the friendly neighborhood mind rapists.I can see it.>"Yuma is acting odd and we might kick the bucket here today, so I better leave Murderface note to watch out for her.">5 minutes later>"You did WHAT?"
>>33983121>>33983133My bad. I derped.I guess I would have voted to assign them to Enishi then if that was an option.
Has anyone maybe thought that since decu put it as a choice it isn't automatically "retarded" because you don't agree with it?
>>33983095Yes, Yes it is.Mami had to strangle Wendy to prevent her from trying to kill Midori. And now idiots want to put Wendy under Midoris authority.Sayaka does not need to get along with Wendy. She barely gets along with us, and its actually better that way.
>>33983108I really don't understand why everyone hates Wendy so much. Or why half of everyone hates Wendy so much I guess.Someone mind explaining it to me?I kind of assumed it had to do with the never ending lewds of her leading to people calling her worst-girl and slut but dunno.
>Assign Wendy to MidoriReally? Like, seriously?
>>33983147Honestly, I kind of assumed that was what we were going to do, initially. It would make sense for them to be assigned under their respective rank leaders.Except that they're not "members", so much as a merc contract. Which makes assigning them to a third party make as much sense.
>>33983148I'm inclined to agree. While I didn't vote for the Wendy --> Midori option, the reason why I didn't brush it off completely was because decu doesn't seem like the sort to put in choices that would ruin everything with one iteration of votes. Hence, Wendy --> Midori seemed like an interesting option rather than a retarded one.
>>33983162Huh, she did?
>>33983179I like wendy.
Rolled 4>>33983182Hatesex is hotI didn't even vote for it
>>33983187We could certainly justify it, even if it's supremely awkward at first.
>>33983187Just like the time he gave us the option to mindrape Girl A?Because that went soooooooo well
>>33983189Yeah it was in a writeup, Mami had a ribbon around Wendy's neck during the meeting and when Midori did her stupid shit Wendy went white faced and we assumed it was because she was full of barely contained rage.Word of god says she would have charged Midori and we would have had some sort of mexican standoff if Mami had not strangled her just then.
>>33983147Enishi should have been the option instead of fucking Midori. That would actually have made sense.I suspect I would still probably have voted for Sayaka, but I would seriously have considered Enishi since she is the choice with logic and reason behind her.
I'm just going to leave it at 'No, there's not a fucking HA HA YOU LOSE FREE TRAINWRECK option'.Everything has a purpose and a result and we are not, in fact, giving random retarded options trying to screw you.Not even mindrape was that.I'll be in my trailer, nya.
>>33983148Decu has all the right to give us enough rope to hang ourselves should we choose to... and this option seems like one hell of a rope.
Assign Wendy to Pinky
>>33983206That went the best
>>33983226She already is.
>>33983214Oh boy...and she did all of that without much of an expressionTruly Mami
>>33983206It led to some of the best writing throughout the entire quest and made a character much more 3 dimensional.I would have voted for it, been horrified at myself, and then glad that a simple quest could instill such emotion.Plus everyone was fucked anyway.
>>33983179As I've gathered it, it boils down to 2 main things:1) Wendy has been getting an increasing amount of screentime. The fact that decu himself has declared her his waifu, and the fact that Wendy Cooldown (the person) is a prominent member of the MGNQ community and is one of decu's close friends, can cause some paranoid players the impression that Wendy (the person) is trying to shoehorn "her" character into the story.2) Wendy's character is, arguably, of a different tone than Chiaki and the rest of MGNQ. I've heard Wendy be described as being "grimderp" and "edgy".
>>33983148>>33983187Pretty much this. It's not like Deculture is big on throwing bad ends at us. He's taken choices, even seemingly stupid ones that nobody counted on and written them in and in some cases the story became much better for them. Slapping Kharn comes to mind.
>>33983179I'll be supporting Wendy unless something serious happen to convince me otherwise. Not even for the lewds, I just want her to be happy... a foolish ambition perhaps, but hey, it's something.
>>33983148Its considered retarded because of rational reasons. Read all the posts above.>>33983179I think in this case the minor shitstorm was less about Wendy herself, and more about the stupidity of putting Midori in charge of Wendy.If the option that did not come close to winning had been Mami, Enishi or Sayaka, I would not have been all that bothered, and I get the impression most share that view.So this time atleast its not Wendy hate.
>>33983216I'm just going to leave it at 'No, there's not a fucking HA HA YOU LOSE FREE TRAINWRECK option'.Bringing Kyubey into the time stop?
>>33983216If anything, mindrape was canon even before it happened. I can't think of anything that changed and it explained so much.
>>33983252That was a write-in. So was GET FUCKED.
>>33982540>"Just that I have to get this to the High Priestess immediately, and I've got plans for lunch."I'm with >>33982659 in my suspicion, We need to talk to Midori before this.>>33983216I don't mind the choice being there, I mind the inevitable angry arguing that follows soon after.
>>33983206I thought it was a cool option. It didn't catastrophically ruin things in a meta sense, in that it didn't necessarily undo Chiaki's work, and didn't change critical plot points (Malal still died, Kharn still went nuts, etc). This, plus >>33983239means I thought Yuma mindraping Girl A wasn't a "ha ha you ruined the quest", imo.
>>33983216"Hey guys, I brought the waifu you ask f-- WHAT THE FUCK"
>>33983240If anything, I'd say Midori is the one who's a different tone from the story. Fluffy pacifist waifu who can do no wrong in anyone's eyes and is a creative genius who writes lesbian shoujo good enough to get animated. Wendy on the other hand is a lot like early-thread Chiaki.
guysguyswhat ifwhat if assigning wendy to midori is the path to the melonburger end?
>>33983281Dan makes everything better. Thank you Dan.
>>33983179Huh? I don't hate Wendy at all!In the last thread I voted against joining with Wendy because I thought and still think that this is a bad idea.Firstly because of Chiakis fresh relationship with Midori.And because I think that dealing with Wendy at this point would be more detrimental to Chiaki who tries hard to not be Murderface.Tl:dr: I dont hate Wendy, I just think she would be a bad influence on Chiaki.
>>33983281based Dani needed that after Hat stormed off, nya
>>33983260Huh, I recalled get fucked was but not the other one. So it really is the players pulling out their own personal rope and hanging them selves with it.
Rolled 13>>33983281Is this the part where Wendy swallows the troll? Because I'd be okay with that
>>33983282Yea. A surprisingly large amount of people support Midori even though she kind of......pathetic.
Say, does Wendy know that Midori is the artist of her favourite manga?I thought that would be funny
>>33983281Top fucking kek
>>33983240>"grimderp" and "edgy".misapplied buzzwords, anon: like the ue of the word "metagaming" earlier
>>33983281I love you so much dan.
>>33983282Midori was supposed to be killed by Chiaki I believe. Wendy was probably meant to be the official canon pairing.But then players went bizarre, recruited Midori and kinda altered the mood of the quest by turning Chiaki into "watch-wearing dildo". That may be why Wendy seems off now? Dunno?To be fair, I will say that Decu has adapted admirably.
>>33983281this is pretty much every thread though
>>33983288Gradual acclimation is the name of the game anon.
>>33983307I forget, what was the "GET FUCKED" bit about again?
>>33983281Dammit Dan!Also this one... now I want to swap their glasses just to see which one notices first. And it's all your fault!
>>33983330Midori mouthing off and charging ribbonhomu
>>33983252tbf, we didnt see where that was going before decu rolled it back.
>>33983314I'll go ahead and confirm that no, Wendy has no way of knowing.Green hair and red eyes aren't even uncommon traits so the self-insert thing isn't obvious to her, she knows at LEAST two other with green hair and like four with red eyes, and one of those has both.
>>33983344Would likely have resulted in a pissed off Pinky and us losing timestop access for a time.Ofcourse, odds are we will get to relive that reaction when Pinky learns how close we have become with the three stooges.
Yuma x Pibky best waifu team fuck shit up nothing wrong Countdown to Wendy Witchout soon fello meguka
>>33983330Midori tells Ribbonmura to get fucked, promptly gets her shit kicked in, only survives by her friend (can't recall her name right now, the one with sword and bears) giving her life for Midori's.

>>33983281Needs a picture of Midori in the corner looking like she hasn't slept in weeks, with a cup of coffee.
>>33983327No, Wendy didn't come in until shortly before she was introduced. You're thinking of Iori.
>>33983313Who nearly killed us in the first encounter
Guys, I made a list of things Yuma did wrong:1. N________________2. O_________3. T____________________4. H______________________5. I______________6. N___________________7. G________
>>33983251>>33983244>>33983221>>33983187Why would you even reply to Crix? He is the village idiot of /tg/. He has a trip so you can filter him.
>>33983384This is pretty comprehensive. Updated my journyal.
>>33983384An excellent and comprehensive list.
>>33983384She didn't fuck Malal, so there's that.
>>33983384Yuma and Pinky did nothing wrong. Death to the false Shepard Mami!Death upon her traitorous tits!
>>33983375can't sleeppinky will eat me
>>33983179I don't hate Wendy. Wendy's kinda cool.But we've got so many characters already, and too many girls who want to do us. Having Wendy hanging around will just make everything even more complicated.But it will give us a chance to observe her, and see if the Church of the Blessed Lady is on the level, or actually sacrificing people to the dark goddess.>>33983327Dec has, historically, done a really good job of adapting to the players.
>>339833131) I would argue that Midori fits within the tone of the quest. Yes, she does tend to come off as a moeblob "shempai~" type of girl, but I'd say that, given how much MGNQ draws off of anime and similar Japanese pop culture, plus some of the other anime-isms we've seen in the quest, Midori fits alright into MGNQ's tone. 2) I think there's also a great deal more to Midori than we've seen so far--if Midori seems like a 2D moeblob living onahole, it's probably because we haven't had the opportunity to see Midori post-Siberia in a context that wasn't her just her fawning over Chiaki or them fucking. Remember what she did in Siberia, as Chiaki keeps bringing up? Or the kiss that just happened that caused that shitstorm? Or her insisting on going with you to Sayaka's "training session"? Or the character she's based off of?I can definitely see why people are irritated with Midori and why they're bored with her, but I think the best of Midori is simply yet t ocome.
>>33983364Plus we dragged others into timestop to save Misaka.The landscape said a lot about Pinky's mood at the time I feel.Worth it for the sympathy from Sayaka though.
>>33983399Malal is not for lewds!
>>33983384She did manage to drive Malal into a murderous rage in just a couple of threads. If thats wrong, is it worth being right?Wonder how many points she got for that achievement.
>>33983414Malal's body was made for lewds.
>>33983366>her friend (can't recall her name right now, the one with sword and bearsMirai. Her name was Mirai.She died so that Midori could live and Chiaki could get the last fragment.
>>33983406>Implying you wouldn't enjoy being accosted by the best girls mouth>implying the feeling of her leathery slick demonic tongue on your armpits isn't the greatest pleasure known
>>33983330High off the feeling of literally slapping sense into Kharn, Midori was motivated to ignore her specialty as a squishy Callidus and, after a crude insult, charge at the warlord with an army of highly-lethal dudes from a good distance away. Naturally, she didn't get far, and her bear friend gave up her chance to get revived just so Midori could live instead.
>>33983381You know, I have to wonder if the anon who first suggeested licking the soulgem knew he irrevocably altered the course of this quest forever.
>>33983413>Pinky's moodI don't think that shit had ANYTHING to do with Pinky, anon.
>>33983413The black feathers suggested Homuficer involvement. Chiaki even brought her up in her inner monologue if I remember correctly.
>>33983413That was more likely Homucifer messing with the timestop that time.Pinky promised us 2 free timestops, so maybe Pinkys absence allowed Homucifer to mess things up.Or maybe Pinky is actually in trouble. Homucifer is a divine level creature similar to her afterall, and one of the few that could threaten her, and everything suggests Homucifer is getting more active.
>>33983409Speaking of sacrifice, didn't Pinky once say that Wendy gave her a bunch of soul gems?>Where did Pinky get all these soulgems she's snacking on, anyway? >"Wendy, of course! At least SHE knows how to be grateful, and to be a nice person!" Pinky sticks out her tongue at you. "But not all of these are from her, though. I got the others from the girls who really, really like me." It's here that she grins, a secret, almost sly grin. "Better watch out, Homura-chan, or they might just steal me away! And then you won't have me to look after you anymore, only that...that broccolihead fatty that you're so protective of!"
>>33983414Malal is the bigger slut because she literally fucked everyone over
>>33983056Ok, now we're actually metagaming. Flashbacks are out of character knowledge.
>>33983442>>33983450>>33983453I am certain it had something to do with her but yeah, I keep forgetting the feathers.Shit will get real interesting the next time stop or two.If the Clara Dolls want to get us, it will probably be during that.
>>33983455Inb4 wendy kills us
A lot of this appears to be participants adding 2 + 2 and getting the national debt. That said, I don't think that the choice was the wisest thing to do from a watch wearing dildo standpoint. I still have issue with the fact that writeus are injecting themselves into the main quest, but I'm not about to shit all over a character because of it.
>>33983459MALAL DID NOTHING WRONGSeriously, how can someone whose thermal vision command word is "Preysight" ever be wrong?
>>33983282>If anything, I'd sayThen I would say that you are new to this quest AND suck at reading.You know that you can like someone despite his flaws and despite him doing something stupid occasionally? You know that, right?Because your post doesn't feel like you know that at all.
>>33983462WhoThe hellCaresIt's magical girl waifu time
>>33983432Oh yea, midori slapped Kharn and died for us. So that gives her some points in my book I guess.
>>33983455Yes, this has already been brought up, and there's one butthurt anon who calls everyone retards because this is supposedly meta-knowledge.
>>33983431Them razor sharp teeth, man. Even taking into account meguca enchanced endurance, probably the only person who could take this treat and still walk afterwards would be blueberry.
>>33983455Already brought up in this same thread with the same quotes and link.
>>33983475Well she didn't kekaiku for Yuma doing absolutely nothing wrong
>>33983492Or Heather, unless she's not invincible down there?
Is there a book for how many points we have with other people? Is there a scale for said points?
>>33983492Even Pinky knows to avoid the teeth when engaging in oral delights>implying being devoured by her Grace isn't the hugest honor.
>>33983473Anon, I had the same exact reservations about Wendy initially, but have come to really enjoy her character despite the initial dislike for writer-avataring biasing me against her in the beginning.That said, I still think THAT FUCKING CAT is a shit, even if I love her from an out of character standpoint.
>>33983473Actually, question:How much do we want writeup characters showing up in the main quest? I know the official policy is "you 100% do NOT need to read writeups at all to fully enjoy and vote for the main quest", but we also see events from writeups affecting things in the main quest.Is this something that should continue, or something that should cease?
>>33982637You nod at Wendy. Yeah, there is something else. When the Prophet's dealt with, the Golden Weapon in Oriko's possession effectively becomes the Ninth's property. This is non-negotiable, and you stress the term enough that you feel yourself becoming more of a watch-wearing dildo just by saying it.As for her assignment, that can wait till later. You'll let her know about it as soon as you can, and in advance, once you've figured out where she'll be needed the most. You don't want to hold her back for too long, anyway, considering that it seems to be very important that she get to the High Priestess."...Yeah. Alright." Wendy nods a moment later, and you can see her grip the folder containing the contract just a bit more tightly. As if letting go would make it disappear somehow. "I'll make sure the High Priestess gets that, too." Stepping back, she rips off a textbook salute - a perfectly executed one, as if she'd been practicing it. Mami must've taught her how specifically for this occasion. "If I may be excused, Warmaster?"You return the salute, and your ex immediately leaves your office - but not without nodding at Mami as she rushes past. As the door closes firmly behind her, it's here that you let out the breath you've been holding - and surprisingly, you see the blonde also relax as well, her shoulders drooping just the slightest bit. A somewhat-exhausted smile on her lips."I'm not going to say that I was expecting this to not go as well as it did, Chiaki-san," She holds up a finger before you could speak. "...Because I wasn't. I will say, however, that having you both in the same room together...well, it makes the atmosphere tense, even if it shouldn't be. Does that make any sense?"[1/2]
>>33983281Is Decu okay?
>>33983465Maybe the dolls were already coming after us but they failed miserably because fucking mach 3 bike.>All the dolls hyperventilating because the good for nothing had to go fast.>"*wheeze* S-Stupid... *cough* good f-for noth- *Wheeze* Why did Mistress make us more noodly than her?"
>>33983564...Writeup characters appear in the main quest?
>>33983526Would love to see the list too. I guess you could go through all the threads and count. sacrifice yourself for us anon!
>>33983572You close your mouth to consider it. ...Really? Was it really tense? You didn't really get any of that. But you do know how that feels, at least. Kharn had something similar, you remember. She can make any room feel like a torture chamber, with everyone inside waiting for the thumbscrews to come out."Well, of course you wouldn't, but...hmm. Well, nevermind." Mami shakes her head, her curls bouncing at the motion. "I'm glad you made the decision you wanted, Chiaki-san. I know you've been doing your best with everything, and anyone else in your position probably would've been so tired of everything that they'd just hand it off to someone else - but you did it, on your own. You didn't even need to check with me or Kyuubey - which, of course, personally approves of the idea."The mutant cat approved of you getting some outsiders as...temps?"We're working for one goal in mind, after all. Kyuubey may not show it, but he's quite amenable to working with smaller organizations to get things done. Something about agitating the local economy and making relationships." Another smile. "I suppose he was also eager to see how you'd do with someone like Wendy, but you can never tell with him, right?"Yeah. There's no telling what your Incubator is thinking about, sometimes. He'll tell you if you asked, of course, but you're not always sure he's telling the truth."Oh, while I'm here, is there anything you need, Chiaki-san?" Mami asks. "Oh, and please do remember that your ratification ceremony's tonight, so be sure to get ready for that! I'll have Sayaka-san fetch you, of course, when it's time."How do you respond?Any suggestions where to put Wendy?Nothing more. ...Maybe a hug. Dismiss her after, tell her you'll see her at the ceremony, where they make you a watch-wearing dildo for life.You planned this, didn't you?

>>33983631Tou mean keikaku or keki?
>>33983639It's because Midori hasn't been anything but a Moeblob waifu for like a year and a half by now.It's a shame because operator Midori was awesome. It's a shame decu ruin her chance for acting cool again so quickly.

Does that make any sense?I'd say she has no idea, but it's really difficult to tell exactly what Mami knowsBut I get it: Given that Wendy is basically Pinky's Avatar, and we are Homucifers... yeah, I get it.I'm surprised the air isn't catching fire.
>>33983548Oh I like wendy, provided she is on the up and up, and I hate people actively sabotaging the quest just for the sake of removing writeup kebab, but at the same time I can kinda see why.Writeups can go poorly if one of the people turns into a complete shitlord like in a certain other quest That will remain nameless. Couple that with a highly visible name/trip commenting and it will breed resentment from a perceived circlejerk
>>33983639I started liking Midori just before Siberia, because I saw her as the only way we'd get Iori out of our fucking hair.Siberia arc massively confirmed her for best.
>>33983709So in the end Midiori will betray us as well?
inb4 Mami turns this around, saying she felt bad for keeping Wendy from us and wanted us to catch up
>>33983588>[x]You planned this, didn't you?Aww yiss. We officially Warmaster now
>>33983730GREEN IS THE DANGER
>Nothing more. ...Maybe a hug. Dismiss her after, tell her you'll see her at the ceremony, where they make you a watch-wearing dildo for life.Crap uh, lunch break in twenty minutes or so. I'll post art then. Would have done it earlier but I had to take calls. Meanwhile, have this screen cap of my macro header file at work. (The Neco ASCII is what will appear after expanding a series of macros)
>>33983588>[X]You planned this, didn't you?Has to come up sooner or later.
>>33983687>Though I do suppose the righteous high following it was at least partially to blame for "Get Fucked".Not really, I am still baffled by that. After it was clear that we survived in the barrier so far through the power of DIPLOMANCY instead of frontal assault people for some reason threw talking to Ribbonhomu off the cart to charge her.So no, the only thing that is to blame for that is people being fucking idiots.Shit we even stopped BLACK ROCK HOMU through the power of hugs. Really, its mindboggling why the fuck anyone would vote for Get fucked. There is no excuse for that. None.
>>33983696Just as caked.

Fringe theory: Mami is long dead and pinky lives in her soul gem
>>33983787As expected of breasts!
>>33983766>BLACK ROCK HOMUHuh, recently finished watching BRS, was that what she was?I figured the eye things are but my memory is too foggy for the rest.Plus not much art of murderface and all of it is a bit different.
>>33983787The solution is simple.... We kill the Mami-San
>>33983812In the end, as long as we don't piss off Sayaka/Kyouko, Sayaka's the only one we can really trust.
>>33983812You know that if we ever kill Mami, it will have been part of her plan all along. If this quest has a Doom, it's Mami.
>>33983812But... no more pancakes.
>>33983805I didnt even watch BRS. I remember someone just naming her BLACKROCKHOMU and it kinda stuck with me?
>>33983588>>33983756This made me smile. Thank you for this.
>>33983794I can't see it, to be honest.Mami is just too Mami to be Pinky.
>>33983787Doesn't matter, had cake!
>>33983831what if we managed to convince one of our enemies to kill mami?mami is dead and we get off with no one hating us more than they already do
>>33983854>getting off to Mami dyingWhat the fuck is wrong with you?
>>33983845...And now I'm hearing the Tetris theme. Goddammit.>>33983854Drag our feet on taking out Oriko long enough, and she might get around to it. She did threaten us with Mami's death.On a more general note, we've added too many characters recently. People need to start dying.
>>33983854>>33983812The Diary App said that Mami could be a huge asset so long as we kept her on our side. She's well-connected and everyone loves her. So long as we keep that affection for us intact and don't piss her off in a certain way, then we'll be that much better off for it.We don't have to trust her, but alienating her is a stupid move.
Rolled 9>>33983794Impossible, Pinky would never set us up with anyone else
>>33983794That's not how it works. Mami isn't dead.
>>33983845of course the collorary to that is that she will stone-cold execute us if it seems like that is the right thing to do.
>>33983479That's the thing, I actually like Midori, though. I just feel that she gets put on a pedestal.

>>33983594Shit, someone get the drawfags on this.

>>33983794>Fringe theory: Mami is long dead and pinky lives in her soul gemThis is stupid and unfunny.>>33983812>The solution is simple.... We kill the Mami-SanThis is also stupid and unfunny.>>33983787>Being openly hostile to MumiThis takes the Retardcake. I wish the people who joined this quest over the course of this year would just leave, I feel like they are behind most of the stupid decisions.
>>33983891SAY IT IN RED
>>33983594Next time we're going to have our own goddamn bike.
>>33983917operation: get oriko to kill mami because its all really a lie, is now go
>>33983890>I just feel that she gets put on a pedestal.It's probably because she's been stuff in a moeblob box since Siberia. During the Siberia arc she was one of the best character in the quest.
>>33983928Next time we shoot on sight.
>>33983704I thought Midori doing the kiss thing was great and the first thing she's done in a while that wasn't Moeblob waifu. Maybe we're getting a turnaround.
>>33983843>>33983756http://pastebin.com/kSMNSaE3 Have a pastebin of the macro file in all it's disgusting glory. I am a terrible person for creating using this in production code.
>>33983240> paranoid players the impression that Wendy (the person) is trying to shoehorn "her" character into the story.Implying paranoid players aren't seeing this as Decu's overseas come-on without love it can't be seen yada yada yada
>>33983475What else would you call Preadator Vision?
>>33983960>I am a terrible person for creating using this in production code.>production codeMay your compilers throw undocumented errors.
>>33983923I am 100% honest in my dislike of the pancake titted menace. She is a liar and a manipulator and harms us more than helps. Engineering her death to our benefit would throw the officio into chaos and leave us to step in and take our rightful place. Only then can we begin to drive the useless into witchdom or as tribute to the mad pink goddess. We will become the person We were meant to be, Homura the Destroyer of Meguka
>>33983959I really hope so. Her getting stuff in the coner like she has been one of the worst things in this quest so far. It's up there with how inconsistently Mami has been written.
>>33983975What I really love is that this is in some way considered a unique thing given that Midori is based on, well, Midori and Kumatora is Hat.
Enishi did say that she was low on callidus so assigning her to work with Midori and not under her is probably the best choice.
>>33983985I've seen worse.Like, the source code for half-life.
>>33983923No-fun-allowed.jpgAre you this much a fag in real life?
>>33983987>Engineering her death to our benefit would throw the officio into chaos and leave us to step in and take our rightful placeI'm not entirely trustful of Mami, but seriously? We're literally just about to be inaugurated as the fucking WARMASTER. What 'rightful place' are we supposed to be usurping?
>>33983987sure thing :^)
>>33984019The part where it is implied people's loyalties lie with Mami, not with the 9th.
>>33984019According to >>33983987 our rightful place is forcing Magical Girls into Witching Out and sacrificing them to Pinky, taking up fully our mantle as Shieldmaiden of the Blessed Lady.
>>33983994> Kumatora is Hat.News to me!It makes sense though
>>33984019Mami is the true heart and soul of he officio. She even wields power over the Incubator. She is a serpent and must be stamped out if we are ever to wield true power. This Wendy incident is another production meant to keep us distracted and ineffective.Kill Mami and interrogate Wendy.
>>33983923>Saying that we can't figure out whether she's deceiving us>Being openly hostileThese things are not equivalent. When you can't figure out if someone is lying, open aggression is a bad idea.>Newfriends pls goIt's because they saw these events in the ebook or something, where everything seems to flow well. Dec does a really good job of welding our choices together in a way that makes sense.Besides, they happened, and the quest was more interesting because of them. Why do we have to say "they were bad and nobody should like them"?
>>33984019Not that person, but to be fair if one looks at our situation, she's basically the Malal to our Kharn. We're the up-front face for the organization and a dangerous weapon to be pointed at problems, while she's the one who "plays the game" and arranges things to work themselves out, while being helpful to us.I myself won't say if this is necessarily a terrible arrangement, unless something goes wrong.
>>33984048what about the part where they lynch us for killing heror don't want to follow usthat plan is fucking retarded anon
>>33983960this is why I don't code in C anymore
>>33984049Prove what? Anyone with half a brain can see that Mami a shit. Every interaction we have with her shows what a codependent control freak she is.

>>33984072Not if it looks like an accident .
>>33984071Except I'm 90% sure Malal never told Kharn's enemies she was coming, or hid knowledge of a 'dead' friend from her.>>33984072That's why we just wait for Oriko to do it, as she's said she'll do.
>>33984072Fuck. Kill it with fire.
Mami is more worth to us alive than dead, as long as we can get her to truly be our ally.
>>33984089>them sallaka pointsand people wonder why she likes us better
>>33984113>Except I'm 90% sure Malal never told Kharn's enemies she was coming, or hid knowledge of a 'dead' friend from her.No, those sound exactly like ths sort of things Malal would do. The latter because Just As Planned, and the former because Malal knows Kharn likes a good fight. Hell, telling someone 'Kharn is coming' is probably an effective negotiating tactic on its own.
>>33984089Since Sayaka is taken, I guess we're going for a Yuu end.But at least our Equerry doesn't think we're a dildo.

>>33983994To be fair, Kumatora is a minor character, Midori (the person) doesn't show up much in the threads, and Wendy is deculture's waifu.
>>33984128That's the problem: we can't. It's impossible. Thus the only solution is to take her out of the equation.

So, anyone else think that the spirits in the deagle make no sense? If they where simply manifestations of our past selves then how do they have know so much about the transcendent one which is a completely separated entity of Chiak, Braids also mentions that there was versions of Homura that died killing Octavia which isn't knowledge she should have as a past version of ourself
>>33984226It's not specified what needs to happen to Kyouko. Obviously the solution is to get Kyouko to like us that way, which will drag in Sayaka as well.
Rolled 17>>33984252I think the better option would be to waifu swap with Kyoko.Then get drunk.Then bang Kyoko.
>>33984226So we need to kill Kyoko? Unfortunate, but it's for the greater good.
So when do we have a threesome with NECO and the hat for an exclusive "between the sheets" interview with best girl and the Warmaster?Captcha : "withor tail"
>>33984278I think we should bang Kyouko. Does anyone else think we should bang Kyouko?I like Operation: Bang Kyouko.

>>33983615 >>33983625 >>33983640Well, as long as she's still here in your office - does she have any suggestions as to where you can assign Wendy? You have a few ideas yourself, but you want to know if she has anything better. ...Does the Officio even have an official policy regarding outside contractors, if anything?"Mmm, well, nothing official. Like I said, Kyuubey likes to work with smaller organizations in Mitakihara, but I do believe this would be the first time we're actually having someone from the outside get introduced to our own roster in such a way." She nods thoughtfully to herself, before pulling out her smartphone and tapping at its screen with a perfectly-manicured finger. "As for where to place Wendy-san, hmm..."She looks up at you a moment later, putting her smartphone away and then holding up a finger. "Three suggestions, Warmaster. The first is to assign her to me: she'll be assisting me with the paperwork and administrative tasks. This way, I can keep an eye on her as well as have her see a bit more of how the Ninth works. She'll also serve as my representative, in case I'm too busy to attend to you or anyone personally."Another finger joins the other. "Second - assign her to yourself, as a part of your own retinue. You'll be the one to keep an eye on her and show her around our Officio. You can have her handle any task you wish, even the paperwork I send your way - although I do hope you'll use your careful discretion with that." Mami winks at you here. [1/2]
>>33984386we dont need to cuck hershes the one who mentioned three ways to us in the first place
>>33984427Lets see if 3rd option is Midori.
>>33984412We need to get Midori in on it too though, so she can write the script! We'll make it a huge production!
>>33984436Gentleman and a scholar, Star.
>>33984427I can't see Wendy doing paperwork. She's probably be happier with the mop.
>>33984446She can handle the visual effects too.
>>33984427A third finger. "Third and last - she's a top-rated Callidus, Chiaki-san. I believe she would have made Rank Leader if she didn't stay exclusively in The Eight's shock unit. I would recommend taking advantage of that by having her help train our new contractees - see if she can't give our Callidus numbers a boost, as well as pass down some of her own techniques." Her smile widens slightly, gaining a mischievous edge. "Of course, you'll have to assign her under one of our Callidus instructors, and Enishi-san doesn't really need another assistant, so..."You blink at Mami, incredulous as all the pieces click together in your mind. Wait, is she suggesting that you assign her to Midori? After what happened back in the Hotel? With her being your ex, and Midori being your...?"I realize that it seems like a strange choice to make, Chiaki-san? But I have Wendy's personal guarantee that she's going to be on her best behavior at all times." She frowns here, slightly. "Granted, what Midori-chan did back at the meeting certainly ruffled a few feathers, but...well, even then, I trust Wendy to be professional."Yeah, but--"They are going to knock heads eventually, aren't they?" Mami gently interrupts you. "Contrary to what seems like common sense, Chiaki-san, nothing gets resolved if you keep two people who disagree with each other apart. That's simply a stopgap measure." She shakes her head. "You put them into situations where they need to work together to survive. Or in this case, to not, as you so colorfully put it, 'fuck up'. If you need an example, well, look at you and Sayaka-san!" ...The blond smiles again. "Then again, these are just my suggestions, Warmaster. You're free to choose any of them, or disregard them entirely. The decision is, once more, up to you."[2/3]
Rolled 6>>33984389The main problem with this is the lack of abs
>>33984461I knew she was going to suggest that....and Mami makes a strong case.Better to have them have it out now and sort it out, rather than in the field.
>>33984455Mami will obviously be the Director, because she's the boss.

>>33984483Personally, I figure its smarter to just try and avoid putting them into the field together. Odds are sooner or later, one of them will have an "accident".
>>33984461Might I suggest making her partners rather than a subordinate to Midori.
>>33984483This, but we need to make sure we talk to Midori first so she knows what's going on.Not just "OH HEY YEAH THAT EX OF MINE IS WORKING WITH YOU NOW DON'T BRAINMURDER EACHOTHER IS THAT EVEN A THING YOU CALLIDUS DO SHIT I'VE GOT TOO MUCH PAPERWORK TO GIVE A FUCK RIGHT NOW BYE"

>>33984461...Well. You'll consider each one carefully, that's for sure.Just one last thing, though. ...She planned this, didn't she? All of it?"Oh, I couldn't possibly comment." Mami giggles here, before walking forward and around your desk - and then leaning forward to place a kiss on your forehead."See you later at your ratification, Chiaki-san. We'll all be there, and we're all proud of you."With that, Tomoe Mami leaves, leaving the room a little less brighter than before. And your desk completely free of paperwork.What do you do now?Take a break, head down to Charles'. You deserve it.Get some well-deserved rest before your ratification ceremony. (Timeskip)

We talk with Enishi about this so she knows to keep an eye on things.4. We warn Sayaka that we're trying the "rip the band-aid off quick" approach to solving inter-personal relationships5.

My thoughts on Wendy's assignment.Make her part of our personal retinue. She's a liason to an outside agency, for a specific task. Keeping her close would eliminate alot of chain of command issues._or_Transfer one of Enishi's aides to someone else, and assign Wendy to Enishi.
>>33984543[X]Take a break, head down to Charles'. You deserve it.But drink responsibly, mind. Maybe have somebody there to keep up from getting too drunk.
>>33984637>too drunkright now, no such thing
>>33984543>[x]Take a break, head down to Charles'. You deserve it.I don't think we've been drunk at even a single official ceremony yet. We have a reputation to uphold.
>[x]Get some well-deserved rest before your ratification ceremony. (Timeskip)Lets get this over with, I have a feeling Oriko might try to screw with us during this
>>33984563This would be bare minimum.But personally I think it would just be easier to put Wendy somewhere else.You have 2 choices. One of those choices is basically a mine field, the other is not. Why would you choose the bad one?
>>33984543[x]Take a break, head to the cafeteria. Get a lunch for Misaka because she probably forgot while fixing Tiny Pete.
>>33984652There's enough bad blood between them without us exacerbating the situation.Not that I'm against reprimanding Midori for being unprofessional, cute as the jealousy may have been, but if we do it in a way that gets back to Wendy AT ALL we're essentially undermining our relationship and causing exactly the same sort of work environment issues that we're supposed to be telling Midori off for; it would just be hypocritical and counterproductive.Which, yes, kinda Chiaki's thing, but we're trying NOT to do that any more damn it!
>>33984543>[x]Take a break, head down to Erika and fuck that bitch up. You deserve it.
>>33984680Because the second choice just spreads the mines over a longer field that we're going to be walking anyway. Better for everything to blow up now, while we still have some control of the situation and can preform triage.
>>33984543[x]Other[x]Visit Midori, tell her that Wendy will be around and to behave.
>>33984666While making her part of our personal retinue, get her to work with Enishi to see if we can have our Callidus ranks learn any new tricks.Having her stay as an instructor would make her feel insignificant. Also, she has more potential than just an instructor.
>>33984652One of them is your current GF. One of them is your ex-GF. Yes it would have been basically just as awkward even if Midori had not kissed us.This is a stupid idea.
>>33984680Like Mami said, forcing the two to work together and forcing them to deal with it.It worked with Sayaka when we made her work with us on the Ruri job.Assigning Wendy elsewhere will lessen the contact that Wendy has with Midori, but that also means that whatever issues they have will likely go unresolved unless we intervene directly to bring them together.So it's actually two minefields; one has them clumped together in a small area while the other has them spread out over a wider area.
MEANWHILE, IN ANOTHER WORLD...
>>33984543Get Midori and have her accompany you to Charles Bar. Her parent's house is nearby
>>33984811>that moment you realize you're living in the wrong universe
No one else wants to take a Waifu Special down to Misaka?
>>33984829Meeting the parents already? Isn't it a bit early for that?
Why not assign Midori to Wendy? She is the more senior Callidus, and we're essentially bringing Wendy in an an external consultant.
>>33984859So, will we be drunk in our own ceremony or not?
>>33984859I'm saddened that we won't have more Misaka and Rea little sister antics today.
>>33984882I dunno, but we're gonna try!
>>33984886Get Yuu in there and it will be the BEST DAY EVER!Imouto Shenanigans!
>>33984910Damnit.When is the ceremony anyway? This day in-world? Tomorrow? Are we going to merely have a hang-over, or will we be fully drunk?
>>33984859it's all ogre
>>33984930Too bad no one else supported the vote to get lunch for Misaka.>>33984929But it would have been so funny to see Wendy and Midori fume about who we got the Waifu Special for, only to find out we were getting it for Misaka.
>>33984935I really really hope we get to do it today (OOC). I've been waiting too long for this since last thread.Love you Decute
>>33984935>When is the ceremony anyway?We were just told that it's happening tonight.You should read the posts more in-depth instead of just glancing over them.
Alright! Pausing thread for now, next thread is tomorrow! Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always great!No writeups for today I think, so questions answered before I go to bed!
>>33984972So what do the Braids, Dildoes and Murderface thing about Wendy?
>>33984952>Page 9No chance.As I write;>>33984972Thanks Decu!
>>33984972NO FUCK GOD DAMMITDECU PLEASEI NEED MY MEGUCA DRUG
>>33984972Accounting for their shoes/boots, who is taller, Misaka, Yuu or Rea?
>>33984972When are we going to have the officio-wide dance competition, where Sayaka breaks out her breakdancing skills?
>>33984972Thanks for running tonight.
>>33984972How experienced are Midori or Wendy at extensive threesomes?
>>33984584that's not how I remember that scene
Magical Scribe Eleanor Slam versus Magical Aristocrat "Milly" Schulz ReduxAs it turns out, this bitch is stupidly good at throwing out lots of attacks really quickly. The first thing she does is hammer at me with her maces; each attack is charged with enough electricity to make my hair stand on end. I have to keep moving my spear to block them, and one of them smashes into my metal arm. That's the only one that doesn't hurt, even though I blocked all of them. Mace bitch manages to sweep my legs out from under me, though, and I'm kissing the mat soon enough, the taste of blood in my mouth. Fuck, that hurts.Laying around bitching about it isn't going to help things, so I roll away, narrowly avoiding a blast of lightning that would take me out of the fight. Fuck, it hurts to stand now, too. She's got kicks like a fucking kangaroo. The stupid pantaloon things are sticking to my left leg; it's definitely bleeding.Focus, Eleanor, FOCUS! Ignore the pain, you're good at that. It's just that this time you're focusing on laying the hurt on a bitch.Yeah. That insufferably smug face of hers is pissing me off. Not as much as what she said, though. I'm going to beat an apology out of her.I step back a little, looking every bit like I'm still on the defensive. As I'd hoped, the impulsive berserker comes charging at me again. Her mouth's moving, but I'm not paying attention to any of her bitching. In a heartbeat, I close the distance between us. The look of surprise and disbelief on butterfly girl's face... I kinda wish I could frame it over a fireplace. It contorts into rage and anger when I stab her in the foot. I try to follow that up with a sweep to knock her down, but she pulls off some acrobatic bullshit to jump away. I see her cringing when she lands, though. Red blood and black ink stains her pretty white high heel shoe.She's pointing at me with her mace and shouting. Her voice is muffled and indistinct, but it sure doesn't sound like an apology.[1/10]
>>33984972Have the rumors of what Chiaki has done to Heartcatch Squad spread yet?How is the news being taken?Did they screw up the delivery of the letters?
>>33984589>I am getting SO. FUCKING. DRUNK.Step it up, sempai.Still love decu for actually including the reference at one point.
>>33984972Hey, Decu what are your opinions on Homura's actions in rebellion and have they affected your portrayal of Akuma i.e. having her as evil rather than morally ambiguous like the end of rebellion
Her yammering gives me an opportunity to dash up to her and make her other foot part of a matched set. She's hollering as I grind the tip of the pen into her foot, driving it deeper and opening a bigger wound. Not so regal now are you, you prissy, stuck up bitch?"Apologize. Now," I snarl at her, the effect diminished by our significant height difference. I'm able to pick up the word 'mongrel' from her response, but otherwise can't make any of it out. Still not an apology, so I remove the spear and make to start skewering other things. Like her hands, which I should have been paying attention to, as I narrowly avoid both maces crashing together where my head was, sparks and electricity flying from their impact. Hopping out of their reach, I make to counter; there's no way she can avoid me now.Except she avoids me anyway, by flapping her wings and going airborne. My stabbing attack just barely misses her. I forgot the bitch could fly.She quickly flies out of my reach and hangs in the air like a fucking hummingbird. I can't make out her expression from here, but I bet she's pissed off. Lightning dances off her maces as they start to glow. A mix of blood and ink drips from her feet onto the mat. Butterfly bitch is injured, but she doesn't show any signs of slowing down other than her hovering being a little erratic. Is this what an Eversor is like? Being able to pretty much ignore what should be incapacitating injuries and keep going? I fall back, my own wounds dully throbbing as I start to feel tired. Fuck, I'm panting, too.I'm... I'm just not cut out for this sort of prolonged, strenuous activity, at all. If I can't end this soon, I'm going to lose, and then I'll have another thing I'll never forgive myself for.I grip the pen tightly with the stupid metal arm, and then I bring it back. Then I line up my shot. And then, taking a few steps forward, I scream, "FUCK YOU, WHORE!" before hurling the spear at butterfly bitch with everything I've got.[2/10]
>>33985035Better yet, how did people react when they learned Chiaki SHOT one of them?
The missile screams toward Fuckerfly with deadly accuracy, making to pin her to the wall like a bug in a collection-And she dodges it in mid air, the spear getting stuck in the wall between the weapons I don't care about.No. No no no no no. That's not fair. That's not fucking fair at all.But I should have seen it coming. I telegraphed my entire attack. I was a fucking idiot who fucking forgot the most basic fucking rule, and I deserved to have this shit happen.Everything that was merely aching before, it all starts hurting at once. I'm acutely aware of burns on my left arm, and I think that wound on my leg is gaping now. I fall to my hands and knees in pain and despair, trying not to cry. I fucked it up. I fucked it all up. I can't make Fuckerfly take it back. I can't be an Eversor. I can't go home. I can't open a candy shop. And I was a fucking idiot for ever thinking I could."Did you really think you could win?" echoes Fuckerfly, her words biting harder than any of my wounds. "A worthless mongrel like you, an Eversor? Don't make me laugh."I am worthless. I am a mongrel. I am a fuckup who can't do anything right. I can't argue that at all. But I still... I just wanted her to feel the slightest bit sorry for insulting Checkers. For insulting my parents. For insulting other people. I don't care about me, but I wanted her to not mean those. And I couldn't even do that much.Why couldn't I even do that much? I deserve bad things and slander, but they don't.Fuckerfly's voice interrupts my thoughts. "As enjoyable as the sight of your groveling is," she sneers, "it's time to extract payment for your transgressions.""Now scream for me!" she yells. There's a thunderclap, and I look up to see a huge lightning bolt strike the mat in front of me, leaving a trail of fire in its wake. Fuckerfly... No, Milly, is laughing haughtily as my demise draws closer. I could run, but what's the point? I'll just get tired.Please. Please just get it over with.[3/10]
>>33984949I'm sure Misaka is perfecly capable of making some lab rat's life hell until they fetch her lunch.
The lightning bolt fizzles out and stops just before it tickles my nose. I'm almost blind at the moment, but I hear something splatter to the ground a ways off. Looking up, I see Fuckerfly bent double, coughing and retching before a stream of vomit escapes from her lips. Her flying is even more irregular. She almost looks like she's drunk from how much she's swaying in the air. I wait and wait for her to resume the fight, but it's not happening. She's just barely hovering a few feet off the ground now. Is she okay?Come on, Eleanor. You've been given a second chance. Don't waste it. It hurts like a bitch with the adrenaline gone, but I rush over to Fuckerfly just as she looks like she's getting over it. My power fist is pulled back for what I hope is a devastating hit.Up close, I see her lips are stained black, and there's black veins on her arms and legs. There's a very sharp smell of ink in the air. Her eyes are red and bloodshot, too.Focus, dammit! It doesn't matter even if it's the fucking plague! Focus focus FOCUS! I might be a fuckup, but if I try, I can still FUCK HER UP!Fuckerfly raises her maces to attack again, but FUCK! THAT! SHIT! I smash my fist into her groin, uppercutting her with a cunt punch. There's a disgusting snap of bones breaking as her pelvis shatters, and Fuckerfly is sent spinning into the wall.I'd swear even my mechanical arm is starting to feel tired, and I want to stop now. But Fuckerfly is sitting up and clutching her electrified weapons. So, even though it hurts so much that my vision is blurring with tears, I dash over to her as fast as I can go.There's a lot of blood where she landed, with little swirls of black in it, too. Strips of skin and tendon barely keep Fuckerfly's legs attached to her body. I think that's a half-digested scone poking out of where her stomach was. And I can smell ink, though it's not nearly as strong as the stench of blood and other stuff.God, I feel sick already.[4/10]
>>33984972Thanks for fun. I'm so happy I can make these threads now.
"Y-you stup-" starts Fuckerfly, who immediately starts screaming when I pulverize her right arm, her mace clattering to the ground along with much of her useless appendage. She shakily raises her left mace, a bolt of lightning shooting out and striking the mechanical arm. I barely even felt it. Planting my foot on her chest, I grab her remaining limb just as she charges up for another shot. There's a popping noise, followed by a wet, tearing sound as I rip it off of her; her head bangs flatly against the bare metal floor.I'm panting heavily now, I feel sick, and my eyes feel heavy, but Fuckerfly is in much worse shape. Her limbs are useless, and she's throwing up again. She's screaming curses at me now, too, most of them unintelligible, but I know what she's trying to say. More insults about me, whatever. I don't care anymore, she can't hurt me now.Apparently, I was wrong. I forgot about the wings. Fuckerfly flaps her wings to launch herself at me. I think she's trying to bite me, but she's too slow. I grab her by the face and force her back to the ground. I make a fist with my left and try to punch her, but it just hurts when it connects with her ribcage and doesn't seem to do anything.I'm going to feel awful about what I'm going to do next. But Fuckerfly's not staying down, and I'm still pissed about what she said about Checkers and my folks. Kneeling down on both wings to keep her pinned, I memorize where all the bits of her are, then shut my eyes so I don't have to watch what happens.I bring my robotic fist down on her ribcage and crush it into pulp, the splashing and crunching sounds making me cringe as bits pieces of the girl splatter around. I feel some of it get on my face, and that makes me hesitate before I bring it down again. And again. And again. And again. Punctuating each strike by screaming "FUCK YOU" as I blindly reduce a living, breathing person into meat. Some of it even gets into my mouth, but I keep going.[5/10]
>>33985088Yeah, but it's not BEST BIG SISTER MURDERFACE bringing her lunch.
The smell, the sounds, the exhaustion, the taste of blood, and the act itself finally become too much to bear, and I throw up my breakfast on top of the girl's corpse.I think I can stop now.I try to crawl away from the mess I've made, but everything hurts too much. Even the robot arm hurts, or maybe those are just phantom pains. Either way, I flop onto the ground and land in a pool of viscera and gore.Don't look at it. Just don't fucking look at it.A pair of firm hands pull me up from the ground and onto shaky feet, dragging me away. Even though I'm not looking at the mess anymore, my eyes feel almost too heavy to open....Fuck, Eleanor, you didn't even get hit that much. How can you be this tired?Because I'm weak. If I didn't have this stupid arm, I'd be a little smoking stain on the mat right now. But that doesn't make it okay to do the same to Milly."And the winner, by total body destruction," calls out Kai from somewhere close, "be Eleanor Abbot Slam!""Congratulations, kiddo, you murdered a person" Madge quips dully. "Aren't you proud of yourself?"I force my eyes open to look at them, and make the mistake of glancing back at the carnage. From this distance, it's a red and pink splatter against the wall, with some bits of white, yellow and black thrown in. I don't feel sick, though. I don't think I have any more sick to feel at this point. Instead, I feel......I feel tears forming in my eyes. I feel tears flowing down my cheeks. Fucking hell, you're just going to drag everyone down with you, Eleanor. And I just can't stop them. This whole thing is surreal and disgusting. I feel like I'm still stuck in that witch barrier."Don't cry now, lass, we'll have you patched up and shipshape in no time!" Kai reassures me as she pulls out a first aid kit, readying gauze and ointment to treat my injuries."I'm... I'm not proud..." I murmur quietly.Madge sounds confused when she asks me, "What was that?"[6/10]
"I'm not proud of myself..." I sob aloud. I turn back to look at both of them, feeling shame and indignation at their clueless expressions. "I... I... I went too far! Why didn't you stop me? She couldn't even defend herself at that point...""And it was right brutal, it was!" cheers the asshole pirate, earning a misty-eyed glare from me. "Ye make a fine Eversor, Slam!""Miss Cress," Madge says slowly, smiling at me, but in a way that doesn't feel like a real smile, "why don't you tend to her injuries while I do the talking?"Pirate shark thing laughs it off noisily, but still asks, "Are you sure-""Yes," Madge insists, adding, "that's an order.""Very well then, your Majesty," Captain sharktail concedes, shaking her head in bewilderment. While she's applying something to my arm that stings enough to make me wince, Madge - oh, she's the one who's holding me up - starts talking."Miss Slam," she asks, voice suddenly much gentler, "why were you applying for the Eversor program?""To... To go back home," I answer, sniffling a little afterwards."To go back home?"I nod, explaining, "to the Eighth Officio." That makes Madge wince, but she doesn't interrupt me. "Russ said I had to... Had to be strong enough to protect myself."I wait for a response, but the woman isn't saying anything. The only sounds are those of the pirate captain rummaging around the first aid kit. Madge is glancing at her watch every now and again.I break the silence first. "And... And I was told... That she'd help me open a..." I feel my cheeks redden as my voice dips to a murmur, "...a candy shop.""Am I correct to assume you dislike fighting?" Madge asks suddenly."Oh!" I jerk back as something taps my soul gem; gun shark lady holds up a grief seed full of black mist."I... Yeah," I answer, "I don't, I don't really like hurting people." Kai gives me a weird look, but says nothing.[7/10]
"Miss Slam, you're what Miss Russ would refer to as 'terribly good-natured'," explains Madge. Despite her smile, her voice is cold enough that it makes me shiver. "While I can appreciate that you're not as bloodthirsty as the other crazed killers around here" Kai sniggers at this, earning a glare from Madge before she continues speaking, "how do you expect to earn your keep?""I could do paperwork like before..." I respond sadly, all my progress in the past few days starting to crumble like sand in a tide.Madge is skeptical, "Can you really, though?""Hate paperwork," I mutter, shaking a little. "Paperwork hurts. Mentally. Physically. Even in my witch barrier, there was paperwork...""So you're the one that Crazy Crunch-" starts fish girl, but Madge hushes her."So," Madge summarizes, "you don't like hurting people. You don't like doing paperwork. What can you do, then?"I glance at my feet, starting to cry at my own uselessness. "I... I don't know," I sob, "I just want to help...""You don't have to hurt people when you fight," Madge tells me, raising my hopes. "If you go witch hunting, that is."...Fuck. Fucking hell. I don't think I can go through that sort of thing again without having a permanent mental breakdown. One nobody - not Russ, not Checkers, not my folks, not all the Culexus in the world - could snap me out of. Is this really the only thing I'm good for?"Think of it this way, Miss Slam" explains Madge, as Kai finishes bandaging my legs, "Witches are magical girls who have been twisted by rage and grief into monsters. They are pitiful creatures, but still violent and dangerous. They're like once beloved pets who have become rabid, and infect everything they sink their teeth into. The most merciful thing you can do, then, is put them out of their misery."Madge holds me by the head with both hands and looks me dead in the eyes. Her touch is freezing cold."Do you believe that you can do that?"[8/10]
"...No." I answer flatly.Madge looks disappointed. "Then I-""But," I interrupt, "I still want to try."Madge's smile comes back. "Very good, then," she responds, letting me go to my stumbly feet, and glancing at her watch. She looks back to the shark girl, who has finished putting her stuff away. "Miss Cress?""Aye?" Kai pipes up."Please escort Miss Slam back to her quarters," Madge orders, adding, "I believe she's earned a rest."Kai makes a little mock salute at her, grinning and calling back to her, "Aye aye!"After that, Madge briskly walks toward the exit at the opposite end of the room. She's probably in a hurry.Still..."...Miss Madge?" I ask timidly.Stopping and turning on her boot heel to face me, her half-cape swishing, Madge quirks her eyebrow in minor annoyance. "What is it now?"I shrink back at this, feeling terrible for holding her up."Um... Thank you," I squeak. And just as to not delay her any further, I add, "That's all."With that over and done with, Madge swiftly leaves Kai and me behind. She waves briefly, and I'd like to think that made her day just a little brighter.Kai shakes her head and grumbles, "I can't understand this whole 'not wanting to hurt people' nonsense." Putting a clawed hand on my shoulder, she speaks up encouragingly as she leads me back out the way we came, "Still, I'm sure ye will make a fine witch hunter."I feel myself going a little red in the face from such praise. Or maybe I'm just that tired. Either way, I tell her, "thanks."The walk back is mostly uneventful. A lot of people glanced at us, but nobody stopped us or really said anything. It gave me some time to think, which caused me to remember something I should have asked about much sooner: "will Miss Schulz be okay?"Kai laughs that odd laugh again. "No need to worry about Moneybags!" she reassures me, then snorts, whispering, "From what I heard from Her Majesty, she's been needin' to be knocked down a few pegs for some time now."[9/10]
"In any case," she says aloud, no longer making a weird conspiratorial whisper, "the lass will be fine with some new prosthesis."I just nod back. I guess it's okay... But I should send her a card or something. Probably won't apologize in person, though. That can't end well.We stop in front of my room, just as something else hits me. "Wait," I exclaim, "what about work? I was supposed to be at Sundry Offerings later!" Jael's going to be so mad if I'm not there in time."Arr, me apologies, lass!" Kai says with an embarrassed smile while scratching at the back of her head, "I meant to tell ye that ye have the rest of the day off!"...Huh. Okay."But startin' tomorrow," she warns, "ye be in Eversor trainin'!"And with that said, she leaves me alone. Her tail thing is still glaring at me, right until she rounds a corner and disappears.Put key in slot. Turn knob. Pull open door. Remove key. Go in. Shut door. Lock door. The room's just as I left it not too long ago. I don't know why I thought it'd be any different.I'm hungry again, but more than anything else, I'm tired. Deactivating my costume makes some of the mess, and some of the smell, go away, but I'm too exhausted to shower the rest off. Too much hassle. Plus I don't know what I'm supposed to do with these bandages. Are they waterproof?I pick up my pajamas off the floor and slip them back on. The sun's still out, so I close the curtains on the window, leaving the room... Relatively dark, before flopping onto the bed.Oh, remove arm first. Turn this way, then that way... It comes off with a click. There's a lot of blood and stuff on the fist.I'll clean it up later. I'll call up Checkers later.Right now I'm just so sleepy.But... I think I'm going to be okay. Yeah. It's not great, it's not ideal, but I think I might be okay. And so is Milly. She'll be okay. Things are going to be okay. I'm sure of it this time....I really hope things are going to be okay.[10/10]

>>33985264Sempai acknowledged me!![squeeeeing intesifies]
>>33985264>They're spreading like WILDFIRE! And it's mostly positive, i.e. 'A warmaster who doesn't fuck around, about time!'Huh. Interesting sociological information about the culture of our Officio.So would you say that "Brutal but Fair" is the ideal that the Officio's MG's appreciate and prefer?
>>33985264A warmaster who doesn't fuck around, about time!'Kissed in an official meeting, then recruited our ex.That did not last long did it? Heh.
>>33985376We haven't molested a Magical Girl during an official meeting yet; I wouldn't put it past Kharn to have done that at least a half dozen times.
>>33985354Magical girls are pretty competitive, so while they're already a fan of Murderface, they're savvy enough to also scrutinize how she'll lead the Officio. They don't want a despot, they want a firm leader with conviction.
>>33985428Coming in drunk to our ceremony should give a good impression right?
>>33985428So simply kneecapping people until morale improves is not the answer.Surround self with competent advisers, acquire advice from advisers, then implement a plan with resolve, adapt as circumstances dictate.Being told that the plan is bad is not grounds for a kneecapping.Being mouthed off to IS grounds for a kneecapping.That about sum it up?
>>33985488*drunk and possibly molesting wendy
>>33984860because that's definately not any better
>>33985488Hahaha!>>33985506Rules 1 and 2, yes!
>>33985428How widespread is the impression that Murderface is gone and Chiaki Matsuda is here?Is Chiaki more popular than Murderface?How much of the fan popularity is just from the reputation of Murderface, compared to how people who actually interacted with Murderface feel about her?
>>33985035>Have the rumors of what Chiaki has done to Heartcatch Squad spread yet?speaking of, we're still not really done with the mouthy one, yet
The Iron CircleChapter I: Olympia-In a field of iron and circuitry, she dreamed.She dreamed of cogs, of gears, of works wrought of stone and metal. Images of a finely-crafted rifle, a gilded clockwork wolf, a suit of armor surpassing any in existence whirled through her mind, each one a masterpiece waiting to be made real. Eventually, she chose the rifle; an appropriate gift, she reasoned, for the newly instated Warmaster in Japan.The image of the rifle was replaced by an emerging blueprint, and like a loom weaving together a garment, the blueprint spun into being. First the base structure of the firearm, then the finer mechanisms—the trigger assembly, the system of operation, the safety—down to every last detail, until she was at last satisfied. A fine gift for a—-Hmm? Is that a present? For...*gasp* for Homura-chan!-The dreamer paused at the interference. The blueprint continued to float on the sea of circuit boards and silicon transistors.-No! No, no, no, no, no,! YOU don't get to give Homura-chan anything! Only I do! You-you GEARHEAD! You COGBRAIN! RUST BUCKET!-Ignoring the stream of childish curses, the dreamer thought-started a program.[Initiating Memopad application. Loading...]To her right in the electronic dreamscape, a white notebook-like image materialized. On the blank pages appeared writing formed of neat print.<Personal log, timestamp 5395.94111. Fifty-sixth encounter with unknown entity.>-Are you listening to me?! She's MINE! Got it?! You can't have her! I—-<As with all previous encounters with entity, fifty-sixth iteration occurred within neuroscape. Multiple anti-virus scans and diagnostic cycles do not detect any unknown foreign software in data drives.>The entity, apparently tired of hurling abuse, resorted to floating between the dreamer and the notepad and making silly faces.
>>33985514>*drunk and possibly molesting wendy and midoriFTFY
>>33984461>Contrary to what seems like common sense, Chiaki-san, nothing gets resolved if you keep two people who disagree with each other apart.Mami's fucking retarded.
>>33985428How widespread is it that Chiaki isn't even really the same person as Girl A?
>>33985354'Brutal but fair' is exactly how I was going to put it before you beat me to it. No mouthing off, no bullshit, and you probably won't get shot.It started with that one chick that wanted to transfer out, but told us what was really going on when we asked. The end result was, as far as I can see it, entirely satisfying for everyone. That squad was the first ones really introduced to how Chiaki was going to run things. I'd like to think they have been spreading that around.Watch wearing dildo simulator is my favorite part of this quest now because of those interactions.
<Entity continues to exhibit intense frustration with my reactions to her provocations, as it had done since fifth encounter. Current episode of aggressive behavior appears to have been triggered by my idea of crafting a gift for the newly promoted Warmaster of the Ninth Officio. Entity, however, appears to assume gift is designated for “Homura-chan” (analysis: Japanese origin, plus diminutive honorific indicating emotional bond between speaker and subject).>Heedless of the entity and its attempts to provoke her, the dreamer continued to take notes.<Observation: Entity believes “Homura” is the new Warmaster of Officio IX. Inference: “Homura” is an alternate designation for new Warmaster of Officio IX. Hypothesis: Entity is associated in some way with new Warmaster of Officio IX. Must contact new Warmaster of Officio IX on this subject, along with presentation of rifle.>As the dreamer continued to ignore the entity, the latter began wringing the hem of its dress and snarled.-Fine. FINE, you dumb cogbrain!- It twirled around, crossing its arms and sticking its nose in the air with a pouting *hmph!* -If you're not gonna listen then I'm just gonna go away! I never should have given it to you!-<No further relevant observations made for entity. Shutting down neuroscape.>As the dream-fields of metal and electronics faded away into reality, the entity turned and gave the dreamer a smile. As always, it was a smile dripping with blood, leaking from crimson lips down to a pink and cream-colored Magical Girl costume.-Well...maybe it wasn't SUCH a waste.- Pitch-black eyes closed as the smile widened. -Because now, one day, I'll get to see Homura-chan take it from your cold, dead hands! Hee hee hee!- Then the giggling pink figure faded into nothing.Blackness.
>>33985574Mami is trying to get us a harem end.
Then reality made itself known again.There was a slight buzzing sensation in her head, heralding a message.<Warsmith?>She paused. Then sent her own reply.<Receiving, go ahead.><We've got contact from 12-Sigma-5. They'll be arriving in 30 minutes.><Acknowledged. I will be ready to meet them shortly.>Now fully awake, the dreamer stood in one smooth motion, the servos in her limbs purring to life as she rose. There was a visitor today, an exchange student of sorts from the infamous Ninth Officio, and decorum demanded she go out and meet the new arrival. She noted the apparent coincidence between the timing of this visit and trigger for today's encounter with the entity.As she headed towards the doors to her personal quarters, she took up a weapon that hung on the wall and slipped it into a sheathe at her back. It was a two-handed hammer, with with two killing faces pointing perpendicularly away from the haft. On each mallet face was etched the Roman numeral “VI”. The hammer was made of gold.-She awoke with a start.She blinked, groping about, trying to either figure out where she was or remember it. The sketchpad on her lap clattered to the floor as she flailed around.Something gripped her arm.“Ms. Iwakura? Are you alright?”“Eh?”She blinked some more, shaking sleep and fatigue from her eyes, and she realized her arm was held firmly in place by a hand made of metal.“Ms. Iwakura?”“Oh, uh, ha ha! Sorry about that, I'm awake...”Honoka Iwakura laughed sheepishly as she picked up her fallen sketchpad. On the sketchpad were illustrations, designs for an artificial left hand made of steel and servos. She was sitting in an armored gunship, a propeller-driven VTOL airplane that was a heavily modified Osprey airplane. Two rotors and a pair of engines made a steady hum as the gunship plowed the air currents. Inside the plane with her was the pilot and co-pilot—whom Honoka had yet to see—and her liaison, Laura Thomspon.
>>33985616now goal: listen to mami
>>33985574In a way, she's right, for this line of work.Either the two figure out how to work together, or there's only one person left.Either way, the interpersonal problem has been resolved.Not the best solution, but admittedly the quickest and most definitive one.
>Edit: the last sentence of the previous post should read, "Two rotors and a pair of engines made a steady hum as the gunship plowed the air currents. Inside the plane with her was the pilot and co-pilot—whom Honoka had yet to see—and her liaison, Barbara Falko."Honoka herself was a taller girl, with bobbed red hair, bright blue eyes, and a shapely athletic figure. She was wearing her powered exoskeleton for the occasion; the culmination of three years of non-stop work and every bit of robotics knowledge she possessed, with metal and ceramic plates installed in strategic places for protection and hydraulics that dramatically increased her strength, she'd figured it would be her way to dress to impress. Doubly so, considering that today was the day she was meeting the masters of engineering: the Fourth Officio Assassinorum.Despite wearing her best, however, upon seeing her liaison Honoka felt she might as well have been wearing rags.Barbara Falko's body was covered from head to toe in metal, as though she were made out of it. Certain parts of her body were obscured by what looked to be armored plates or protrusions, such as her chest, head, shoulders, and hips, forming metal imitations of a low ponytail and a blouse-and-skirt combination. The plates and protrusions were painted a soft baby blue, while the rest of her was a bright alabaster. Her face, like the rest of her body, was metal, consisted of a pair of blue eye-lenses and barely-defined features resembling that of a blank fashion mannequin. Lines where the joints of her body lay were stark against the white alloy body. Overall, the liaison's metallic body cut a lithe, slim figure.Either Barbara was wearing the most advanced (and tight-fitting) armor of all time, or Barbara was literally some kind of robot. Given what Honoka heard of the 4th, the latter seemed somehow more likely.
“Did you have a nice nap?” asked Barbara. Her voice sounded almost natural, with a touch of synthesized quality, though her mouth didn't move when she spoke. Honoka wasn't entirely sure where the sound emanated from. Despite the liaison's inhuman appearance, however, Honoka noted she could still read her body language: calm, measured, unfailingly polite. Rumors said the girls of the Fourth were universally cold and were assholes, but Barbara seemed to defy expectations.“Hai! Er, yes!” said Honoka. She remembered just a second too late to speak in English rather than her usual Japanese. “It was just a tiring flight, that's all, ha ha...”“It was, wasn't it?” said Barbara, though she didn't seem the slightest bit fatigued. “I do apologize for that, flying from Japan to our headquarters in the Sahara can't be easy...”Honoka glanced out the window. The rich brown sands of the Sahara Desert gazed back at her, a line of nomads interrupting the endless expanse of coffee-colored dunes. She'd heard the headquarters of the Fourth was mobile, and happened to be traversing one of the biggest deserts in the world when Warmaster Matsuda approved of her sabbatical. Idle thoughts crept into her head: was the headquarters an armored convoy? Perhaps a ship capable of sailing on both land and sea? Or maybe it was a giant floating carrier, like the headquarters of the Sixteenth. She flipped a pencil back and forth between her fingers to ease her excitement.“Speaking of which,” said Barbara, “the pilot tells me will be reaching headquarters in about half an hour. I'm sure you'll want to be out of that combat armor as soon as possible.” The metal liaison nodded pointedly at Honoka's exoskeleton, and once again Honoka felt ashamed of her best work. “May I ask how you came across that armor?” asked Barbara. “I wasn't aware that the Ninth regularly issued powered armor to its personnel.”
Honoka let out a sheepish laugh as she waved her hand. “Oh, this old thing. It was just, uh, something I cobbled together a few weeks before I got here, you know. Felt it was...appropriate. Yeah.” She paused, and decided she never would have made it as a Callidus.For her part, Barbara merely stared at Honoka for a moment before saying, “I see.” The mannequin-like face was impossible to read. -The conversation went on from there, to Honoka's great relief, to idle talk about their respective Officios. Honoka found herself talking much more about the Ninth than Barbara did about the Fourth, and she wasn't entirely certain if that was just by coincidence.“...and what is it like, working alongside Venenum and Vanus girls?” asked Barbara.“Well, we don't work -alongside- them, per se,” said Honoka, “not in the field, anyway. But they're handy, it's always nice to go into a firefight knowing you have good intelligence and good medical support.” She cocked an eyebrow. “But what about the Fourth? I'm more surprised you don't have Venenum or Vanus clades yourselves...”“We in the Fourth believe all of our Magical Girl personnel must be fully combat-capable,” said Barbara. “So it's not so much that we don't have Venenum and Vanus clades—though that is technically true—as much as our Callidus, Vindicares, and Eversors divide the usual Vanus and Venenum roles between them. As for how this is done, we have a system that we call the Dodekatheon...”Barbara proceeded to explain the Fourth's unique organizational structure: the Dodekatheon, twelve departments that doubled as support mechanisms and places for the girls of the Fourth to hone various skills. The liaison didn't get far in her explanation, however, before she abruptly stopped and looked out the window.“Oh. We're almost here.”
Honoka followed her gaze. In the distance was what appeared to be...a person? Or at least, it looked vaguely humanoid, with two legs, a pair of stubby arms, and the biggest shoulders she'd ever seen. As the plane flew onwards, however, Honoka realized it wasn't a person at all.The legs were like castles, each of them a stout cylinder bristling with hundred of guns. The arms were not only by far the largest cannons Honoka had ever seen, but also, she suspected, the single largest weapons ever constructed in human history. The right arm-cannon itself was so long that a small runway sat atop of it. The head, itself the size of a five-story building occupying a whole city block, gazed back at her, its form like that of an iron knight's helmet of with void-black circular eyes and a grille for a mouth. The impossibly broad shoulders held an entire fortress-complex, barracks surely large enough for a small army and enough guns to render an entire city to ash. A part of Honoka, a very small part that wasn't enraptured by the colossus standing above the desert sands, estimated the whole thing to stand at about 2000 feet and about as wide at the shoulders.If machines could have a goddess, thought Honoka, this is she.“This,” breathed Honoka, “is your -headquarters-? You -live here-?”“Yes,” said Barbara. If she was amused at Honoka's dumbfounded look, she wasn't showing it. “This is not only the nerve center of our Officio, but also our primary research, design, and manufacturing facilities of the technology that makes us the Fourth Officio.”Honoka shivered in delight as she mashed herself up against the glass to get a better look. She realized she was probably looking very silly in front of the liaison, but she couldn't bring herself to care. “Have you guys ever fired one of those things?” she asked, pointing at the oversized arm-cannons.
Barbara replied, shaking her head, “Not since I've joined the Officio, no. In fact, I don't recall any mentions of the primary armaments being fired in any Officio record. I suspect the weapons are largely there to deter attackers. The 'big stick', as it were.”Honoka wasn't sure who would want to assault a walking fortress like the Fourth's headquarters. People with death wishes, maybe. Madmen, perhaps.Eventually, the gunship landed and Honoka and Barbara disembarked. As they walked towards a huge metal gate leading into the headquarters, Honoka asked Barbara a question.“So...who built this thing?”The doors before them groaned as they approached. “The Fourth, of course, back when the Officio system was first enacted. The two people who designed it are still with us, one of which was our own Incubator.”“And who was the other designer?” asked Honoka.“The other designer was—”“Me.”The voice boomed from the threshold of the entrance. Like Barbara's, it seemed mostly natural with the slightest synthesized quality, but there the similarities ended. It was deep for a girl's voice, bordering on masculine, and despite the brevity of the one-word statement it brimmed with authority and confidence.Honoka turned her gaze to the speaker. She couldn't make out fine details since her eyes were adjusting to the bright midday sun, but from the looming shape she could tell the being was about eight feet tall and made entirely out of metal. Despite the light, she could still spot a golden glimmer behind the figure's right shoulder, looking something like the head of a very large hammer.“I'm Petra Dammekos,” said the figure, “Warmaster of the Fourth Officio Assassinorum. The Fourth calls me the Warsmith.” Petra gestured at the iron colossus they were standing on.“Welcome to the Olympia.”
And that's it for Chapter 1 of The Iron Circle.Many, many thanks to Deculture for letting me write and post this!Pastebin: http://pastebin.com/0yLT5dup
>>33985760Glad someone picked up the Fourth, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of this. Thank you!
>>33985548Not very widespread. Most of the officio still think of Chiaki as Murderface. And Murderface is definitely popular.>>33985577Not that widespread! But they are taking note that Chiaki seems to be getting her act together more, now.>>33985760Thanks, Twiceborn!
Well, this identifies another MG we have to kill.We don't want to fight the Fourth, since it might bring the First down on us. Maybe a duel for possession of the Golden Warhammer.
>>33985760Updated the archive to include this, just to be safe!
>>33985793>And Murderface is definitely popular.Is that the idealized stone-cold killer Murderface popularized by Murder Mayumi? Or the actual Murderface?
>>33985574>>33985616We need to give them something that requires cooperation to complete. Just lumping them together probably won't solve the problem by itself.
>>33985813You trying to take my job!?I jest. Good work.
>>33985760Imperator Titans! Fuck YEAH!
>>33985832>give them something that requires cooperation to completeWe could give them a protection contract. It worked for Chiaki and Sayaka, maybe it'll work for them.
>not the MacrossVery slightly disappoint.
>>33985832>Chiaki covers herself in whipped cream.>In danger of suffocating>They must work together to lick it off of her
>>33985876This is a pretty clever idea, and I wouldn't be opposed to covering it in writeups or, even better, a flash...side...with either of them as viewpoint characters.
>>33985903>REVENGE MODE>Ruri Protection Detail.She asked for Chiaki, she gets Wendy and Midori.
One thing though, Wendy said she had a plans for lunch, IF that is the meeting with GreenGreen, Wendy and Midori will be meeting face to face, in a public place, outside of the officio.I have hopes for it working out and they bond a little due to their love for Manga (and maybe Chiaki) but I still feel that we should have a chance to talk to Midori before they meet.
>>33985987This has been accounted for and Chiaki won't end up being randomly punished for something she literally didn't have time to clear up beforehand.
>>33985793You're probably already gone, but are Misaka, Yuu, and Rea like many Japanese kids and they love Japanese curry?
>>33986027I would say they do, yes! Curry's pretty powerful!
>>33986068We bring Rea and Misaka katsu curry for lunch, and eat curry with them while we have the Bangles on so Yuu can eat as well.How many points would that be good for?
Wendy doesn't know that Green Green is Midori. But does Midori know (or suspect) that the person writing letters to her is Wendy?
>>33986147She has no reason to (yet), she doesn't know anything about Wendy. Although it did come out at the meeting that Wendy does dream stuff, and she knows Dreamy's having some relationship problems.
>>33986117That would be for quite a lot of points, especially if you feed them!
>>33986167>That would be for quite a lot of points, especially if you feed them!Then we shall bring them a curry that could satisfy even an American's greedy gullet!
>>33986167Just wanted to say, thanks for the thread, Decu!Don't let any arguing get you down, I've really been enjoying the quest.
>>33986221That looks really good->it's in nycyeeessssssss
>>33985212Hold up. Did Crunch just score with -both- Amber and Jade?
>>33985832We still haven't even gotten a mission with Midori as Chiaki. Why haven't we?
>>33986221Not enough variety of meat.
