Twitter: @HeroRena>Last time on HERO QUEST!>We joined Rider as she went around the dome fulfilling the last requests of those who fell in the battle against AltRena. Goodbyes were said and the fallen heroes were able to leave peacefully. A new member was added to the Hero roster, Lady R-18, to take the spot of FCC-Man.>We now join the most important character as they ponder their next action
>>34116291>We now join the most important character as they ponder their next actionOh boy, it's going to be a Magical Monster episode.
>>34116320>>34116343No, it's obviously 18+ woman.
"You know... I know I sounded all cool and tough when I said I was gonna fix everything ever and make both associations better places... But I honestly can not even think of how I would start it."RM: "I'm sure you will come up with something, mistress.""I've been thinking about it all day since the battle and I'm drawing up nothing. Who do I even talk to? Every time I try to talk to Big Boss he just sidesteps my questions and promotes me or something. The man is devious. I can't get anything out of him."RM: "He did not become the head of the Association for nothing.""Any advice, Robomaid? I'm afraid I'm stuck."RM: "Perhaps we could storm the place, destroy it, and rebuild it as we please.""No, that's horrible. Bad Robomaid."Dangit...I'm stuck.How can I change anything if I can't even talk to the man in charge of it all?
>>34116393Pet the RoboNyaa.
>>34116393You know the Mayor's daughter, right? The Teal Ranger? Maybe talk to her, she could set something up with her dad.And what's up with the cat ears?
>>34116393Get pet by Robomaid, that will give you some ideas.
>>34116393Ask sparkle how SHE manages to get the boss to agree with her.I mean, she got us demoted! we need to learn how she talked to the boss like that!
>>34116393Did you two go to Cat Land or something?If you can't talk to Big Boss what about the Villian boss, or the mayor
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>34116393Pet robomaid
>>34116489We should start a strike. Both Heroes and Villains.Don't do anything until they cave in to your demands. It's the entertainment industry - if the entertainers aren't willing to play their part, everything is fucked, and the guys in charge are in danger of losing money.
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>34116393Pet the kittybot
>>34116489>>34116393Maybe there's some CAT based solution to all this.Introduce big boss to kitty?
>>34116393nya nya nya
>>34116393Why is everything cats? Is it cat day or something? Man, QotW died and was reborn as a catgirl in the most fashionable time. As expected of Queenie.
>>34116594If Bridgette turned into a cat, Rena would never let her go.
>>34116393Big Boss can't promote you anymore, and no villain would dare try to kill you at this point even if you were S-Class 1. You have nothing to fear from him....but maybe you're approaching this from the wrong angle. Instead of trying to convince Big Boss to change the Association, convince EVERYONE ELSE. If everyone is backing you, then he will have no choice.
>>34116393Try storming the place, destroying it, then rebuilding it as you please.Fuck up Big Boss though. That guys a fag.
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>34116393Ok. What if we establish some kind of massive sporting event thing to entertain people?Instead of everyone destroying shit and killing eachother, we make the Super(powered)Bowl or the Dome Cup or something.
>>34116638We should have more field days.With more safety regulations.
>>34116628Maybe that's worth a try.Turn into one of those cats with two tails.
>>34116393No, no, I think Robomaid might have something here.You just need to overthrow Boss and take his place.
>>34116393Have you considered storming the place, destroying it, and rebuilding it as you please?
>>34116393Ask to see Big Boss, then just keep hitting him until he stops being such a douche.
>>34116638We need dome NASCAR
>>34116393Well, our campaign of introducing heroes to villains as friends seems to be getting results.The best we can do is arrest trouble cases, encourage working together, and figure out how to talk to big boss right.
just need to switch the bonus money thing. instead of a bonus for killing people you get a bonus for taking them alive.also, just keep trying, he can't promote you forever!
>>34116725Even better, make it outside the dome. It's time to build a bit around the city and reclaim the land.
>>34116725NASCAR is pretty much the least interesting form of entertainment I can think of.
>>34116748Maybe the problem is that they're inside this one tiny little dome.Maybe it's time to try and make two domes
>>34116748Even better, make it in, around, AND outside the dome.We MK8 now.
>>34116792Get Queenie on this. She has the money.Actually, wait. What if we made Queenie the Mayor?
>>34116638There's an idea. Maybe try to make magic/technology where fighting is more like Super Smash Bros instead of Mortal Kombat.Chief gets his fighting, everyone else gets their safety.Ridley still doesn't get in.
>>34116833Isn't that the exact thing she was trying to do when we first met her?
>>34116931Yeah, and Rena stopped her.Poor long-term planning on her part.
>>34116931Not really. She tried to use her magic powers to get everyone to worship her.This time, we'll go through the legal channel and get her elected as the sole ruler of the world.
>>34116931I thought she was trying to find the leaders of the dome to get them to declare "queen day".>>34116947I don't remember her doing that at all.
>>34116931Well, yes. But she was using mind control to do it. Which is bad.If we can get her to do it with DEMOCRACY then it's all good.
>>34116947Yeah, how dare she not have the foresight to realize all of this would happen. Really dropped the ball there.
>>34116982Invaded by her alternate self? It was obvious really.
>>34116393Okay, so, here's a semi-serious assessment.BB and whoever the Villainbot AI is are both nothing more than poorly-programmed assessment computers. They assess the good and the bad of each individual in the 'organization' and from there reward certain behavior ala $$$$.All the money in the city runs through these two programs, one designed to encourage positive behavior, the other designed to encourage negative behavior, all the while both of them constantly assessing and reassessing the strengths and weaknesses of the individuals, and ranking them accordingly.For something so difficult to rank as which power is better, they do a surprisingly competent job of it, all told. Even Rena and her resourcefulness was appropriately ranked up into S-Class, and she's proven worthy of the rank with her charisma, social prowess, and skill with rock throwing.The big question is, who programmed them? They're clearly both derivative of the same design, literally just one value different (One supporting good, the other supporting bad), so it's logical to think the same person designed them both. The question of 'whodunit' is the one we want to answer.
Oh gosh, so many amazing ideas.And no, we're not gonna tear down the place and rebuild it. That's an evil clone kinda idea. I don't know why Robomaid would even suggest such a thing.I think you guys are right about getting others to think I'm right first, though. And I think the first step to doing that is to try and talk to the Mayor. I do have that favor I've never called on.>Rena makes a call to Teal Ranger. The girl is more than glad to set her up with a meeting with her father.TR: "He's normally super busy but we Rangers owe you big time, Rena! Any time you ever need anything from us please just ask!""Thanks again. Tell me, is he the kind of man who is cool with opening massive sporting events?"TR: "Well he can be a little rough around the edges but he's still a nice guy. I'm sure you'll do well with him.">Teal Ranger leads Rena to the Mayor's office. She's never actually stepped foot inside this building and is amazed how professional it looks. Everyone is wearing suits and not a single mask in sight. She's brought to the mayor's room and Teal Ranger wishes her luck as she steps in.>A man with a massive pompadour and a ripped jacket looks up at her.Mayor: "So, you're the one who helped save my daughter, eh? Name's Bronson Tenton. You can just call me Mayor. Everyone does. So, what can I do for you little lady?"Huh.I guess I can never escape the crazy people train.
>>34117045Whoever made the dome, made the bosses.Find Shadowman. He worked on the ranking system, he must know what's going on.
>>34117066Tell him we're trying to make hero/villain violence less extreme. Ask him how we would go about making more field-day type sporting events.alsoASK HIM WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH THE CAT STUFF
>>34116393I'd say part of the problem is that the world is rendered uninhabitable and the only thing keeping everyone from committing mass suicide is bloodsports like this.You gotta give the world hope again maybe?
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>34117066Is... Is he a tigerfolk Yakuza?
>>34117066suggest a hairstyle appreciation day inside the dome this month to raise morale.
>>34117066It's Cat Day isn't it, Larro isn't going to acknowledge any questions asking about the cats
>>34117066Ask him if he knows who made Big Boss and the other AI.
>>34117143Everyone's wearing cat stuff in solidarity with QotW until she can get used to her new fluffy ears, obviously.
>>34117066Maybe just say the lethality on both sides of the hero/villain war has gone too far?
>>34116961>Catgirl Egyptian in a business suit and glasses whose cabinet is nothing but magical girlsYes.
>>34117066Ask him why everyone is a cat today.Also, ask for help in changing the hero and villain system
>>34117237Yeah, this pretty much.We're trying to figure out ways to make hero/villain business less deadly for everyone involved.
>>34117066Well first things first, tell him what's been bothering you about the whole hero v villains things
>>34117066Okay, Rena, be professional about this. Calm, friendly and charming. So your usual self.Compliment his office and the pompadour. Especially the pompadour. Then suggest that, in the light of recent events, the lethality of the dome has gone up, and that some reforms are in order, and that you're interested in learning of how to implement them. Also important - make it seem like it was his idea.
>>34117239It's either her hiring the girls to work as her assistants, or her starting a magical girl idol company.The other one can even tie in with her love for singing and the spotlight.
>>34117301I can't stop laughing
>>34117376It's a glorious picture
>>34117143What cat stuff? Everything's as usual.
>>34117143>it's another parallel universe where everybody is wearing cat costumes for some reason.
>>34117550also, the trick to seeing Big Boss is obvious.Make him want to see you.
>>34117550> This chapter will turn into a Junji Ito manga-lookalike where that one dude wakes up and noticed nobody has eyes.
What cat stuff?"Well I just wanted to discuss a few things about the dome.">Rena takes a seat across from him."Nice pompadour, by the way."MY: "Thanks, I spend an hour every morning making sure it's nice a rigid.""Mhmm. So, like I was saying I came here to talk about the dome. Because of what's happened recently I feel that maybe the amount of violence and uh... Death has gone too high. I think the system needs to be changed, don't you?"MY: "I agree, things have become a bit too dangerous even for someone like me. I worry about my little girl every time she puts on that uniform.""I'm sure you do. Well I think we should try and bring down the level of lethality and make the dome a safer place for everyone. I was wondering if maybe you could tell me how I could go about doing something like that?"MY: "Hmm. I'm gonna be honest with you, little lady. There ain't much I can do about that.""Hmm? Why not?"MY: "Well, years ago, before I was even mayor, this man came by and said he had an idea. An idea that would give the Heroes of this city something to do and would help keep the masses entertained. They also share most of the profits from merchandise with the city. It seemed like a win/win at the time. The mayor before me signed a contract that basically says the office has no say in how the Associations are run. It's out of my hands.""Do you know who made the contract or anything?"MY: "I might have a copy of it filed away somewhere... I don't know exactly who it is that made the contract. Before my time. But I do know that there are two contracts, one for each association.""Were they made by the same person?"MY: "No idea. Sorry I can't help out the lady who helped my little girl out more but I just can't change it directly. If you can get either association to agree on something I'd be more than glad to help, though."
>>34117672So we need an older hero or villain to fill us in. Can we call Bridgette's mom or dad to fill us in on what happened then?Also, Shadowman. He worked on the ranking system, he maybe knows something useful.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>34117672Lets try to find his copy of the contract first.It should give us some hint about how to proceed.Nya.
>>34117672Okay. So... who, exactly, does the bits for "getting an association to agree on something"?Do I have to convince the big bosses, or just the S class council, or have a vote, or what?
I don't think our problem is keeping the people entertained, it's trying to derail an organization that throws around millions of dollars every day. If you add up the costs of rebuilding the city along with the salaries of their 'workers' they have to have some serious financial backing, like Fortune 500 level.
>>34117672Let's figure who has been the longest in Hero Association and Villain Association and aske them about the contracts and contractees. And hope we get some leads.
>>34117672Thank him, if we can't get the Hero contract let's go see if we can get Bridgette to help us look at the Villian one
>>34117672>>34117756Yeah, let's see if we can get a copy of that contract, or at least read it to find out what's really going on.
Let's SEE these contracts, maybe there's something in them they aren't following and we can take to them to help matters. Or there can be some trick or loophole in the wording we can take advantage of.
>>34117764And then it turns out that there are other cities outside the Dome, and that the Heroes/Villains Organization (H.V.O.?) is in charge of it.
>>34117672Maybe Rider could call up some of the heroes from around that time?Barring that, we do happen know a certain ageless entity that might have been around at the time.
>>34117672Go see Bridgette so she can summon her Dad.I totally want to see Bridgette with cat ears.
Rolled 13 (1d20)I'd really like to see what Monster Marauder and Sparkles look like in cat costume.
Does this mean that Queenie is going to have TWO sets of cat ears?
This cat stuff is extremely ominous and probably means bad things
>>34117949It's just Queenie testing out her new powers as a Quantum Beast.Speaking of, does she remember her previous life now that she's one of QBs?
>>34117949Nyansense. Everything is purrfectly normal anyan.
>>34117949Wait a minute. Rena is wearing a cat hat, not actual cat ears.
>a world full of cat girls (and guys)Sounds great. What's the downside?
>>34118046Maybe the cat hat is doing this.
>>34118082>What's the downside?Giant six-legged salamanders keep trying to steal all your stuff.
>>34118128Oh, right. I keep forgetting about those.
>>34118158But hey, at least the rays are friendly enough.
"So I need to get the S-Class to agree or just the Big Boss?"MY: "Just the guys who run the place. The S-Class pretty much follow what they say anyway. While you do your thing I'll have my people look for those contracts for ya. Haven't had to drag those out in a while.""Thanks."MY: "No problem, little lady. Anything for my daughter's friend.">Rena thanks him again and leaves the office.First I need to find out more about who set up the whole thing... Then maybe I'll have some more clues.Who's the oldest person I know...========================================MM+++: "Dear, the organization is quite old. How old do you think I am, exactly?""....... 30."MM+++: "Haha, how flattering. No, I'm not quite old enough to be around since the beginning.

Any idea who made the contracts?""He says that many years ago bother contracts were drafted by one human male."One man..?MM+++: "Anything else you want to know, dear?"
>>34118128>>34118158>>34118207And just like that, this thread makes me crave a game of CATastrophe.
>>34118299>MM+++: "Dear, the organization is quite old. How old do you think I am, exactly?">"....... 30."Wise answer, Rena!
>>34118299Shouldn't the contracts have been agreed by both the bosses of the Heroes and the Villians?It's the same person
>>34118305>CATastrophe Quest Never>>34118299Yeah, why is everyone wearing cat ears and stuff?
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>34118299Can the monster nyan?
>>34118299How does the villain organization feel about less deadly, er, villainy?The heroes seem mostly for it from what we've seen, but villains who knows.Also, how is the villain big boss? Our big boss is really... pushy.
>>34118299oh god rena, you are bleeding from your eyes
>>34118299Who ordered the creation of Big Boss and his villain equivalent AIs? Was it the same man?
>>34118299Who/where that man is.>>34118305CATastrophe Quest when?Mayne Larro can do a oneshot
>>34118299Does he know who the man is? Or what happened to him? Or from where he got the money to fund such a big organization?Also, this is important. Did that man have any kids? That's Rena's dad, isn't he?
>>34118407That's why Rena was promoted so fast, he's been doting on his daughter
>>34118433Every time she does something right he just beams with pride.
"So they're both computers, right? I mean that's pretty obvious."MM+++: "I believe so, yes. I've seldom spoken to The Dictator or Big Boss personally so I can't say for sure but they both have a certain... Rigidity to their personality.">>34118372I'm fine. I just can't see out of one but it'll pass. This has happened before."Do you think that maybe they were created by the same person? By the person who made the contracts?"MM+++: "Hmm... It's possible. However it's speculation on my part, dear.""Do either of you happen to know where this man is or what happened to him? Maybe how he got the money to do this stuff?"MM+++: "Hmm... Neither of us know exactly what happened to him but we do know he used to be the owner of a very old gaming company. Actually I believe it's the same one that makes Heroes vs Villains now. The man who ran it simply vanished one day.""Alright. I'm getting a lot of clues but still they just seem to raise more questions... Oh, how would you feel about a less violent Villain Association? I know the Heroes would be okay with it but how would your boss react? Or the other villains?"MM+++: "Well... Some might not agree with it. Remember Rena, a few of us are very bad people. Others like my children would be fine with not killing, I suppose.">She shrugs.Yeah I can't see someone like Plague Doctor quitting his thing...So what we know so far is that the Associations were possibly made by one man who also formed a contract saying that the Mayor couldn't interfere with his stuff. We also probably can assume that both bosses are running under a similar code...Where should I go next?
>>34118733We obviously need to see Magical Cat Sparkle.
>>34118733calling it nowit's bobby kotick
>>34118733Shadow Man.He designed the entire ranking system, go ask him. And he's a detective and spy, maybe he knows something.
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>34118733>Hmm... Neither of us know exactly what happened to him but we do know he used to be the owner of a very old gaming company. Actually I believe it's the same one that makes Heroes vs Villains now. The man who ran it simply vanished one day.Could it be Regis FilsAimé?
>>34118733Shadow Man mostly?
>>34118790Or John Ricaroni. Only the head of EA could be as demented and utterly shiftless as the creator of HvV.
>>34118836It's Peter Molyneux.
>>34118880He certainly has the megalomania and egoism for it, but not the talent.
>>34118880>Peter Molyneux>accomplishing anything he sets out to do
>>34118914That's why the system sucks, yes.
>>34118733Shadow Man can definitely help us in an investigative manner. And Sparkle could also tell us more about Big Boss. I'd say one or the other or even both.
>>34118971Agreed, let's rope in both Shadow Man and Sparkles to our plot.
>>34118971Shadow man would be super useful wouldn't he
Shadow Man it is, then I'll see what Sparkle is up to.>Rena goes to the Hero Association and meets up with Shadow Man. She tells him about everything she's uncovered and asks him if he can help her find out more about the Associations so she knows exactly who to talk to.SM: "Rena... You're getting into something you probably shouldn't. I really shouldn't say this to anyone but a few people but... There's a secret to the Big Boss. A secret that very few know about and I think it's best you didn't. You should just stop here and let things continue as they are. Even Sparkle didn't want to mess with this."
>>34118971>shadow man>with a cat hoodKawaii~
>>34119029Wait... what does that poster say? Could you look at it, Rena.
>>34119029>A secret that very few know about and I think it's best you didn't. You should just stop here and let things continue as they are. Even Sparkle didn't want to mess with this."He's the same robot as the Dictator isn't it?
>>34119029I NEED TO SEE THE REST OF THAT POSTER.
>>34119029We have to Shadow, it's that importantAlso look a littles to your left
>>34119029Rena, use your womanly charms on him. Make him tell you everything.
>>34119029Shadow man, you recognize that is the BEST way to get someone to keep prying into secrets, right?Though seriously, is there any way we can change payscaling? Maybe with a preference towards living enemy and civilians VS death on both sides?
>>34119029Look at the poster!!!
>>34119029But Shadow Man. Rena is the protagonist! It's her job to mess with things others don't mess with.
>>34119029We have to try.
>>34119060We'll probably need some help for that.Maybe call Caffo, ask her for advice on seduction.
>>34119029We're a hero. We've been in danger before. Messing with dangerous things that need to be messed with is what being a hero is all about.
>>34119029"When I met Sparkle, she was a pit of booze, drugs, and cancer. I doubt she wanted to mess with anything, good or bad."
>>34119029Tell him you can't just give up while people die every day with things the way they are. Get him to tell you the secret. Even if he wants something in exchange.If the secret is that Big Boss is a robot, just tell him that's not really a secret.
>>34119029Don't worry Shadow Man, Rena has plot armor. Also we can go to a coffee shop if you agree, and talk this over.
>>34119029"We made a promise, and we're going to see it through to the end. Meow are you going to help us or not?"
>>34119065Yeah that's a good point.What is he playing at here?
>>34119169Stop making bad cat puns right meow.
>>34119293I don't see anyan reason to do that.
"We made a promise, and we're going to see it through to the end. Meow are you going to help us or nyat?"SM: "I... Rena, I really think it's better that you just not know.""Come on, tell me. Is it that they're both the same robot?">Rena glances at the poster but Shadow Man jumps in front of her field of vision.SM: "Rena, who told you that!?""Huh? Oh, I kinda just... Figured it out. I'm right, right?"SM: "W-what!? No! Of course not! The very idea is ridiculous! We are two completely separate Associations. Stop even suggesting otherwise!""Come on, Shadow Man. This is important. Can't you tell me? Please?">>34119060>Rena tries her best to act cute."Pretty please?" She gives him the best kitty eyes that she possibly can. He seems to falter a bit but shakes his head.SM: "No, Rena! Even if we go on a billion coffee dates I will never tell you!"Dang. I guess I'm not much for charms...He's my best bet, though.And now I REALLY wanna know.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>34119308Paws up, Rena. You didn't try hard enough! If cuteness doesn't work, try throwing a rock.
>>34119308What I want to know is what's with all the fucking cat ears and shit.Are cat ears in style or something? Did Queen do this?
>>34119308Take his hat hostage.
>>34119308Shadowman, all you are doing is making me SUPER TANTILIZED by this mystery.How about you just tell me what BAD thing will happen when I get to the bottom of it?
>>34119308PUSH HIM OUT OF THE WAY AND LOOK AT THAT DAMN POSTER!!!
>>34119308How about if you give him a kiss on the cheek?
>>34119308Rena. Wink at him. It worked on the Spine Ravager, after all.
>>34119308>>34119029My guess is it says "Cat Ears Are In" or something.
>>34119308Damnit Rena, you got trapped in the Matrix. Now Big Boss is going to brainwash you.
>>34119393My guess it says Cat Empress. Queenie probably started a new fashion line or something.
>>34119308Shadow Man is so shocked he dropped his cat ears, I see.Anyway say pretty please and work those eyelashes at him.
>>34119308Bribe him with a sleep over, that'd totally work, right?
>>34119308Them being the same robot makes their little argument over Jade even weirder.
This isn't getting you anywhere, Rena.Maybe you should make your own league for people to form rivalries inLike a.. Um.. Baseball league.
>>34119425Isn't it obvious?Shadow Man IS the one who made the contract! He's a God-creature in disguise!
>>34119489With Mario Kart. And lasagna.
>>34119496More reasons to steal his hat
>>34119504and you know what? Forget the mario kart and the baseball
>>34119489Nonono, a go-kart league. Wacky Races style. It was fun before right?
>>34119496>>34119308TAKE OFF SHADOWMAN'S HAT
>>34119308Offer to give him a kiss.
>>34119308"Shadow Man, the way things are now, some of my best friends could die if they have a bad day. I can't just let the system go unfixed, and I need to understand what's going on to fix it."
>>34119508>>34119539It all makes perfect sense now.He's a God-Creature who became tired of ultimate power, bored of doing everything, and saddened by all that was lost. So, he made the dome, and the programs, and set up the system so that people could go about their lives in a thriving, self-sustaining AND self-stimulating economy, keeping the people distracted by the ever-changing drama of the Heroes and Villains.And yet, all this time, he's been jealous of mortals, of their ability to view the world and each moment in it as precious. That is why he desires Rena. Her Aura of Normality helps make him feel...human, again.
>Rena gives it one more shot. She winks at Shadow Man and asks him one more time to please tell her pretty please with sugar on top.>The man is strong but not strong enough for that assault. Rena can see his resistance crumble at her adorable display.SM: "Rena, I... I just don't want you to get hurt...">A last ditch effort to keep her safe."I won't, I promise. I've been through worse."SM: "... Very well. Come with me."1/2
>>34119673>mind-controlling postersDamn it Queenie.
>>34119673Oh man I feel bad for winking at shadowman.
>>34119673Oh, Queenie. She's created a memetic hazard!
>>34119652....u wot m8
>>34119673Anyone else suddenly feel like wearing cat ears?
>>34119673Oh man, should have known, Queenie's at her shenanigans again.
>>34119794Yeah, I wanna wear cat ears right meow
>>34119803Don't worry, she'll snap out of it once she lays an egg.
>>34119822Yup.Lola and her's egg
>>34119822Wait, can Queenie lay an egg? Shouldn't it be Raindrops that lays an egg?;_; Angelic, where are you?
>>34119876Man I don't know how quantum catgirl liches work, that's above my pay grade.
>Shadow Man leads Rena deep into the Hero Association. They go underground, descending more floors than Rena even knew existed.>Finally they go down a very long hallway, a heavy metal door at the end of it. Suddenly something flies past them and stands in front of the door, it's arms spread out.>It's Magical Nyaapire Sparkle.MVS: "Shadow Man! What are you doing!? She's not allowed to go in there!"SM: "Sparkle, she already knows about most of it. We may as well just tell her the rest."MVS: "It's supposed to be a secret! A secret only a few of us are to know! If everyone knew about this everything... The whole thing could just fall apart!"SM: "Sparkle, it's already not doing too well. Rena wants to try and fix it."MVS: "It's fine the way it is! Give me one good reason why I should let you in, Rena."
>>34119920That's some hyper cute shitStart scratching her chin
>>34119920Her son. He could die because of the Associations' lax rules on fatalities.
>>34119920"I know where to get Catnip. If you help me...I can hook you up."
>>34119920Both the robots are the same robot and they were all made by the same guy?Though really, all I want to do here is maybe get the big bosses to agree with different payscales, and maybe do more field day type events.
>>34119920Throw her a ball of yarn. You carry one with you since the things went cat-like, rigth?
>>34119920Holy crap you look adorable in that outfit Sparkles.
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>34119920Scratch her cat ears.
>>34119920Give her catnip, that's some cute shit.
>>34119920What about the part where the system was the main cause in my alternate self attacking this universe?
>>34119920Ben.That's the only reason there isNot risking him having the kind of future where you have to be afraid for his life.
>>34119920That's easy for her to say. Her boyfriend is practically indestructible. Bridgette could be killed any time she encounters a Hero with issues.
>>34119920I wonder if you approve of the system filming everything you do. How do you feel knowing that every moment with Ben and your kid is recorded and watched by millions?Or that people probably watched Rose die and eat your arm on reality TV?
Guys what do we actually plan on... doing?There's not much we can do once we get to the bottom of this to actually stop hero/villain violence. The best we can do is try to provide alternate outlets, and change payscales.
benben, does she want a world where it is ENCOURAGED people try to kill him?
>>34120074The Association does pay its members, you know. Those that break the rules can be cut off from their pay.
>>34120103So, changing payscales then.It's a good measure, sure, but it's not a silver bullet.
So this means queenie basically took over the entire dome?
>>34120152She's now the fashion queen of the dome, yes.
>>34120152Yep!We Rena needs to stop her.>>34119920Stop Queen. She's turned everyone into cat girls.
>>34119920It's not working fine if people can just kill people with no repercussions. How would you feel if Bridgette died? Or Cynthia?
>>34120152Maybe that poster wasn't queenie's doing.Maybe it was Raindrop.
>>34119920Sparkle sucks at this hero thing.
>>34120171>She's turned everyone into cat girls.You speak as if this was a bad thing.
>>34120171Wait.So Cynthia is a lamia catgirl now?
>>34120213Oh my god we have to see this.
>>34120213>lamia catgirlHere you go.
>>34120180More likely the photographer thought she looked better without glasses.fucking photographers man, perfectionists
>>34120239>a picture of lamia catgirls>one minute and eight seconds after the postI love you anon.
"Just think about BenBen."MVS: "Don't bring my son into this...""No for real. Right now if he decides to become a hero and went out there he could die. I wanna try and fix that. I may not be the best at it but I wanna at least try."MVS: "..... Fiiine. But only because your fuck ups somehow wind up making things better. Just... You should not tell anyone else this, okay?""I won't, I promise.">Sparkle sighs and opens the door for her.>Rena steps in and sees a massive screen with a chair in front of it.MVS: "This is it. The control panel for the entire thing..."This room is huge... And there's another door at the other end.
>>34120313You know our motto: We deliver!
>>34120340FUCK YEAH! Time to play Mario Kart on a massive screen!
>>34120340Look at the panel in the middle of the room.
>>34120340Oh fuck, Villain's Association and Hero's Association. USE THE CONTROL PANEL, RENA!
>>34120340Wait a minuteThere's literally just one control panel?Sparkle, this seems incredibly dangerous and unwise to have.
>>34120340That other door leads to the Villain's Association.Ask Sparkle who's behind all this. What's the deal with the Associations, and who's the guy who made them?
>>34120340INSERT COIN PLAYER ONE
>>34120340Alright, go sit.
>>34120340ACTIVATE IT RENA. LEARN THE TRUTHONLY IN TRUTH CAN YOU GO MEOWARD.Wait...something is wrong, Rena. Maybe mew I understand it now that we're so far away from the surface. Nyo, nevermind. Meowthing to worry about.
>>34120340Look around, don't actually touch anything though
>>34120367Hmmm....Uniting the Heroes and Villains, with the game where heroes and villains play harmless sports with each other.Turn the HA and VA into go kart leagues.
>>34120420Now now, we can't entirely eliminate supervillain/hero actions.After all, some will always go causing chaos, and some will always have to stop them.
>>34120420No, it should be something organized, like professional wrestling.Everyone is well trained and matches are pre-planned
>>34120444Yes, but now they do it with go karts.>>34120451Why not both? Wrestling and Go Karts.Wrestling Cart.
>>34120444Yes. In the end we cannot change the hero vs villain fighting. All we can do is try to cut down on deaths.
>>34120469We can do go carts on weekends.
>>34120451Something like the Guild of Calamitous Intent // OSI arrangement, then?
>>34120482But don't you see? The deaths and the violence is how the Dome wards off overpopulation.
>>34120469That's still not dealing with the issue of people who just go and blow up buildings, ignoring the kart and wrestling things entirely.Alternate leagues and methods of entertainment are good, yes, but we have to actually deal with the hero/villain system, not just replace it entirely with other leagues.
make it so it pays better to capture people alive rather then killing.
>>34119652I'd just like to point out that this theory still kinda stands.
Change the rules so if you kill someone you explode
>>34120546I'm still expecting Rena's dad to be behind it all.
>>34120546Guy from the end of the last thread here, speculating on the Boss being Rena's dad and the same guy who ran the Villain Association, etc, etc.Just pointing out I was right.Thanks, and good night.
>>34120340So the entire system is controlled from this one console? And the S-Class had access to it? And nobody thought to fix it before now?
Expand or dieOne way is to organize expeditions to set up new dome using the hero's and villain to set upIf they die then no carnage in the dome if it works we can move population to the new and ease tension
>>34120533Yeah, this.Just chance the financial benefits so people who don't kill lots of folk get more pay, villain and hero.
>>34120514With advances in technology, we could deal with overpopulation by forming volunteer hunting parties to go outside the dome and try to kill megamonsters. They'd probably die, but if their lives are traded for even a few defeated megamonsters, the outside could slowly be made safe again. Or hell, if the population problem gets bad, the city could just start expanding underground, or send out an expedition to set up a second dome.
>>34120640The thing is, the death toll would be much, MUCH higher than it is now. Plus, if one retaliates by attacking and (eventually) destroying the dome, game over.
We should change it such that villains have to submit their evil schemes/heists in advance and have them approved by the VA. The VA then contacts the HA, who pairs the villain with a hero (or heroes) with comparable strength and experience.Any casualties whatsoever equals no payment to either party.Furthermore, no more getting shanghai'd into the HA or VA. Volunteers only and they have to have to be approved by both the VA and HA, since this is a cooperative effort.>>34120634The VA and HA working together to take down monsters and establish bases outside the dome is also a good idea.
>>34120664What? The dome is strong enough to protect the city. If megamonsters could break it, the city would be destroyed already.How would the death toll be higher, anyway? It's not like it'd be required to send out half the population to get killed outside the dome.
"The entire thing..? Does that mean it works for-"MVS: "Both associations. The Villains have access to this too but only a handful of them know about it. Same for us. Right now it's just you, me, Shadow Man, Esper, and Chet. Sorta. This is the thing I used to change your rank, Rena. This is the machine that that keeps Big Boss and The Dictator running. This is everything.">Rena goes over to examine the machine closer. It's just a normal keyboard, desk, and chair. But she knows that contained within that is a massive chunk of what keeps the dome running.MVS: "Among those of us who know about the thing even fewer know how to program it. And we keep it all a secret from Big Boss himself. He doesn't seem to be aware that he and The Dictator are essentially the same person. So the changes I make have to be few and subtle. Not only that but the OS running this thing is decades old. I'm always worried that any change I do to it will have the whole thing come crashing down. It's why I do it so infrequently. You say you have a way to fix things, I'd like to hear it.""Well... It's just a small thing for now but what if we made some new rules? We adjusted the pay rate so that you get penalized like crazy for killing someone. Loss of money and dropped ranks. Stuff like that.">Sparkle looks at Shadow Man.MVS: "That is a bit more complicated than just changing someone's rank but if you want I can try it. I... I've honestly never done anything that big. Rena, I'm trusting you because you're my friend and you've made some good choices so far. You wouldn't be alive as long as you have been in S-Class without making good choices. Are you sure you want to do this?""I... I'm sure."This will help at least until we can get those other plans off the ground.MVS: "Alright.">She sits down.MVS: "Actually... Tell me exactly what you want me to change or add. Let's try to get done as much as we can in one go. I don't want the Bosses catching on."
>>34120770Wait a second. If you're not sure how to program that thing, can't we get the guy who made the machine in the first place to do it for us?
Huh, whos Esper?
>>34120770All I want to do is make it so deaths are penalized across both factions. You know, make it so that you get paid less if there were lots of people dying.Also, I want to put more budget into field-day type activities. Maybe give folk more chances to get to know one another.
Can we get that asshole prince to help program this thing or is that too much to be expected of him
>>34120770>MVS: "Actually... Tell me exactly what you want me to change or add. Let's try to get done as much as we can in one go. I don't want the Bosses catching on."Penalize heavilly both heroes and villains for each death caused by a conflict
>>34120864ThisAnd not only does your pay get docked, but any money you DO make goes towards funeral/medical expenses for those you harm. Plague Doctor can just make some kind of hiccup virus or something from now on.
>>34120770Ask if they've gotten any really skilled computer-types to look at the system?I mean Shadow Man doesn't even get how his own gear works.
>>34120770Well, we should penalize killing in any case, but that won't be enough to stop it. There are people like Plague Doctor or Anti-Hero who would just go on killing even without the money, we'd need a way to do something about them.
>>34120770>MVSShouldn't it be MNS?
>>34120918That might be too hard.Actually, instead of just restricting money, why not add fines on top of the existing system?Like layer it on top of what is already there instead of changing deeper systems.
>>34120948Yep. The best we can do for them is... encourage heroes to stop villains.
>>34120770>Deaths are penalized for both heroes and villains.>VA and HA work cooperatively to pair up equal strength heroes and villains. Also field days.>More organized training of new recruits, maybe a sidekick/henchman system.>A system that provides troubled villains and heroes with the help they need, like Plague Doctor.>Maybe some exploration of outside the dome.
>>34120770We should do something about reducing the amount of drone surveillance. That's another problem we need to address.
>>34120913Those not change the fact some of these guys just don't care about the money and are doing for fun I guess it was thought it was better to have them inside the tent than outside
>>34120770Waaaaaaaaaaait a moment. Early on when Rena didn't want to move up the ranks, Sparkle went and fixed things with the Boss for her... but actually SHE VISITED THIS ROOM TO PUSH RENA DOWN THE RANKS.
>>34120948Let's just try one thing now and see if it works?
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>34120770Let out a primal war-cry and punch the screen.
>>34120997Obviously it's because we weren't using the detective's perspective.
>>34120978Maybe give repeat offenders Dome Duty as a sort of community service.There also needs to be some sort of villain and hero Meet & Greet so they can get to know each other and decide who they want to arch.
>>34120978It works.Oh, also, perhaps some kind of way to give starter funds to new heroes. Maybe just a free durability upgrade on new costumes.Heck, that's something rena should do herself. The rena new hero fund. Gives them enough cash to buy one or two upgrades on their suit.
>>34120770Monetary incentives won't be enough to stop some killers. Set it up so that anyone who commits a murder is flagged for immediate apprehension, even if they decide they're done being evil for the day or something. Beyond that, it's an issue of fixing the prison system so that people like Plague Doctor can't easily be broken out.
>>34120770> Killing will be penalized. The penalty for killing a hero on duty is different than the one killing a civilian.> Bonuses for capturing the members of the enemy team or nonlethal takedowns. Two arches can go at each other in a duel, but they have to arrange it through the proper channels.> Villains and heroes are required to submit a plan of action before every major action. This plan will then be scrutinized by the S-Class, who can greenlight or deny the plan if it's too dangerous or insane.> The S-Class and the Bosses will have equal say in who gets promoted, or what the appropriate punishment or reward for a certain action would be. That way the members of society have equal say as the AI and can partake in the maintenance of the city and the Associations.> Both parties are to unite and help each other in case of an imminent catastrophe such as a Megamonster, awakened Demigods or whatever that's threatening all of humanity.> Rogue members will be dealt accordingly, in collaboration with the law and the other Association. So a rogue Villain will be hunted by both the VA and the HA.> Each new hero or villain gets a probation period. During this period, a mentor is assigned to them to teach them the ropes and rules. The mentor has ultimate say whether the member can join or if he isn't ready and should remain a civilian.> Each new rank gets the same procedure as above. So a C-Rank gets trained by an experienced C-Rank, and he evaluates the new candidate.> There's a common fund for all the classes. That way you don't end up with under-equipped heroes such as the Rangers. The associations are required to pay for the equipment, lodging, food and more of their members.Am I missing something?
>>34121047>new heroVillains too.
>>34120770I want Heroes to be given zero money and not promoted if they kill a Villain, normally. However, any Villain that has a history of killing Heroes and civilians will be marked as OK to kill, so that Heroes that kill them will still be paid and possibly promoted.This is all that's really needed, but Villains could also be penalized- all funeral arrangements will come out of the paycheck of the Villain responsible.
>>34121029It also means that Larro had planned out the control room and the background for the associations since... maybe thread one?
>>34121076Eh, too much.
>>34121076>> There's a common fund for all the classes. That way you don't end up with under-equipped heroes such as the Rangers. The associations are required to pay for the equipment, lodging, food and more of their members.perfect
>>34120997What does Sparkle want with Rena?
>>34121097Or he retroactively connected things together. As another QM, it's very easy to string asspulls together behind the curtain like some kind of grotesque anal beads of plot.He probably planned this one out, though.
>>34121076I feel like we should dumb this down a bit, like do things gradually, maybe work with someone who knows technology, like Robomaid?
>>34121076Oh, we should allow deaths if it's an agreed-upon duel to the death.I mean, you kindof can't avoid that sort of thing sometimes, and it makes for good drama.
>>34121169No. No deaths. Ever.
>>34121169Only if they fill out the proper forms for it. You know, that nobody will seek vengeance for it or whatever as long as rules are followed.
>>34121168It's more like a list of things we should be aiming to implement, one by one.For starters, lets tone down the murders and penalize the killers, maybe flag them as offenders who should be kept under watch. If they behave like assholes then, get them exiled or sent to prison or something.
>>34121088I'm kind of wary on that point. Not all killers are beyond redemption. Robomaid went around murdering people before Rena convinced her to give up evildoing, didn't she?Still, yes, something needs to be done about it. We can't treat innocent bystanders' lives as if they were insignificant.
>>34121233Yep. Make bureaucracy the worst enemy of both heroes and villains.That way nobody would want to kill anybody, because the paperwork they'd need to fill would take them over a week.
I think I can just give all the new guys a few thousand dollars to help them get their suits working. Hell, I could give them tens of thousands of dollars and it would be fine."Hey, can we get Prince to help us program this thing?"MNS: "There is no way in hell I'm allowing that man to even come near this machine. Who knows what he would do. I can program it well enough myself.""What about the guy who started the whole program? Where is he?"MNS: "I... I don't know. No one does. He's pretty much just gone. If he were still around this would be a lot simpler. Now tell me what you want. I don't like being in this room for too long.""Alright here's what I want...">Rena makes a list of some rules she would like added to the Associations. These would take place gradually over a good enough period of time so that it's not seen as too weird.>She makes it so that deaths are harshly penalized across the board. No killing. Killing is bad and wrong.>She tries to set it up so that Villains and Heroes are paired according to strength but Sparkle says that it already sorta does that. Still leaves wiggle room for the two groups to pick who they want to fight.>She is, however, able to make it so that new holiday ideas will be brought up with the S-Class's of each group to add more things like the field day.>Also Rena insists on no more just randomly getting people from the street.They need to join up.MNS: "Fine.""Also I think we need to explore more outside the dome. Maybe even expand a bit?"MNS: "Huh. I actually agree with that. The place where I live is pretty safe. Alright, I think that should be it by for now. Anything else we need to take care of on our own for a while. We can't mess with this thing too much and-"BB: "Oooh, what's everyone doing down here?">Rena turns and sees Big Boss.BB: "What's this whole thing? Are you all playing a video game? Don't you have work to do, Rena the Rock, Magical Nyanpire Sparkle?"
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>34121340Give BB a wink, Rena!
>>34121340Ask him why he doesn't have cat ears and a ":3" face. Doesn't he know it's all the rage these days?
>>34121340I think you meanRenya the Rock.
>>34121340>Magical NyanpireRemember when Rena was a Magical Nyanpire? Good times... good times...
>>34121340EVASIVE ACTION, RENA!Big Boss, why aren't you wearing your cat ears?
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>34121340"Two plus two equals this statement is false."
>>34121340Oh, hey boss. Can you look the other way on us slacking, just this once? Pretty please?
>>34121340Why isn't big boss wearing cat hears?
>>34121340Actually, BB, do you know what happened to the owner of that video game company? Or where he is nowadays?We're looking for him. We want to start a game-con to help the people take their minds off the murders, and we could use his help with that. After all, such an important man would be a great guest of honor.
>>34121379We need to get another Magical Nyaanpire thingy.
>>34121340YEPLet's go now, lots of work to do. Yep.
>>34121340"Wait, what? Was there an assignment I'm supposed to be on? What's going on?"If we distract him, we can avoid answering questions about what we were doing.
>>34121340Ask if there actually is something we and Sparkle are supposed to be doing?I don't recall you being paged for anything.
>>34121340I think you mean Meowgical Nyaanpire Spurrkle.
>>34121365>>34121477Oh god, what have we unleashed.
scream "EEEEEE I'M INDECENT!" and break it.
>>34121435We do, but I think it's a bit late for that.Maybe we have one in the future?
Maybe if we said there was some kind of emergency and we need the best computer engineers, scientists, programmers, and technicians to come to the hero association RIGHT NOW, he would rush out and get on that. The little guy does seem rather excitable.
"Oh uhm... Yeah. Games. Speaking of games, do you know about some guy who owned a really old game company? We want to get in contact with him to uh... Start a game con. You know. To help people out."BB: "Hmm... Can't say I do. I don't really pay attention to non-Heroes. Say, can I play? Or maybe just watch. I do enjoy some games.""Sure but uh... Where are your cat ears? Don't you know they're all the rage."BB: "Hmm? I... Oh! You are absolutely right! I need to go and buy some! Hopefully they're not out! Those things have been selling like hotcakes!">Big Boss flies off and out of the room. Shadow Man slams the door shut and locks it.MNS: "I can't believe that actually worked... How did you even know that cat ears are... Wait, why are you wearing that cat hoodie?""Huh? I am..?" Rena reaches up and feels the kitty ears on her hoodie. "Where did those come from..? And why are you wearing that?">She points to Sparkle's clothes.>The girl looks down and gasps.MNS: "What the fuck!? Why am I wearing my kitty costume!? Shadow Man, why are you wearing that!?">Shadow Man looks just as confused as the rest of them. Rena blinks and notices the ears on Shadow Man's hat for the first time.MNS: "Rena, what the fuck did you do!?"
>>34121340Tell boss we were secretly planning on holding more, unofficial sports days.He should be all over htat.
>>34121719TRY TAKING OFF YOUR CAT HAT.
>>34121719"How could this conceivably be a result of my actions?"
>>34121719I don't know Magical Nyanpire Sparkle
>>34121719"Excuuuuuse me...it's Renya~"
>>34121719Quick, Sparkle, check if you're wearing anything under that!
>>34121719I didn't do anything, I SWEAR!
>>34121719Stop blaming us for everything, Sparkle. You suck as a friend. You should be ashamed.Anyway, it's the Queenie posters. She has her mind-control eyes on those, and a note how cat ears are awesome. So those are to blame.
>>34121719No time to explain, leave the room of destiny now! Don't want BB to come back in to look for us!
>>34121719"I swear, this one is totally, 100% not me. I think."
>>34121719"There's nyathing wrong with wearing cat ears. They're in fashion, after all!"
>>34121719You owned a kitty costume, Sparkle? But wait, didn't we see a poster... or something... about cats?
>>34121881And now we know what Bridgette was doing the whole day.
>>34121719No no, Sparkle, it's okayCat Ears Are IN
>>34121908Have we seen Bridgette or Ben-Ben in cat ears yet?We need to.
>>34121941Also, Cynthia as the catgirl lamia. And Caffo and Rider.
>>34121976>cat girl rider
>>34121976Rider's too busy channeling the ghost of Catwoman
>>34121991You wouldn't ride a cat girl, would you?
>>34122017I'd ride a cat girl Rider
>>34121719Oh, someone must've taken the poster down.QOTW had a poster up with her mind-control eyes on it, telling everyone that "cat ears are in". Because she's stuck with cat ears, she wanted everyone else to wear them as well.Keep wearing it, Rena. Show your solidarity.
>>34121719>MNS: "Rena, what the fuck did you do!?""What, this? This was Queenie's thing. Didn't you see the posters?
>>34122017Rider channeling Eartha Kitt. I didn't even know I want this.>"Catherrrine, darrrling, you look simply purrrfect."
>>34122082Shit, was meant for >>34122009
"You have a kitty costume?"MNS: "I... It doesn't fucking matter! Just tell me what you did! How did you make me not notice this!?"It wasn't me! Seriously! I didn't even notice it til you noticed it! I uh.... I think I remember seeing something about cat ears upstairs. But I don't get what's the big deal. Cat ears are in."MNS: "Show. Me. Where.">Rena leads Sparkle and Shadow Man to the poster she saw earlier. The eyes are no longer glowing. Sparkle defaces it a bit and storms off.MNS: "Gonna fucking kill that bitch...""Sparkle, no!">She grabs onto the Nyanpire.MNS: "She'll just come back to life. It's not like it matters.""We JUST went over how killing is bad and the first thing you're going to do is kill her?"MNS: ".... Fine, I won't kill her. I'm just going to wound her a bit.">She shakes Rena off and continues on her way, glaring down anyone who dares to stop her.Oh boy...I don't think she's going to just wound her.
>>34121719Just say you're wearing it in support of Queenie, who got stuck with'em.
>>34122133It'll be fine, let's go find Bridgette instead
>>34122133Tacklehug Spurrkle. Make the :3 face as you do it.
>>34122133Throw a rock at her.You're a hero, it's your job to stop people acting like petty villains.
>>34122133Well, I guess we should call ahead and warn Queenie that a Sparkly Cat is after her face.
>>34122133Rena, what would Raindrops do?
>>34122133>Dan vs. FashionQUEEN!!!!!
>>34122133"She's stuck with them now. I can't blame her for wanting to make them seem normal.How about you go home, see Ben, and change? That'll give you time to cool down, and I'll go talk with Queeny."We'll tell Queeny that everybody loves cat ears, but if everybody wore them then she wouldn't be nearly as unique and awesome.
>>34122133But if she kills Queenie then she'll lose all her memories and have to meet Raindrops again all over and it'll put such a strain on their relationship and their happiness and NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>34122133Call Lyrical Princess Raindrops to warn her in advance.
>>34122239Can she even kill Queenie now that's she's a quantum beast that's surrounded herself with magical catgirls?
>>34122250Lyrical Princess Nyaandrops, you mean.And Sparkles going to kill Queenie over trying to address her insecurity over being stuck with cat ears? Little cold, even for her.
>>34122133Just remind her that killing Queen would make Raindrops sad. Then maybe go see alt you and tell her about the changes you made.
>>34122133Quickly Rena, go after her!
>>34122235Yeah that might be why she's doing this.Queen is sensitive about her new ears, and wants them to become normalized?
>>34122133Surprise her by grabbing the kitty titties.
>>34122279Don't forget that Sparkle hates Quantum Beasts.
>>34122310"If you make everybody as beautiful as you then how would you stand out?"
>>34122133She's about to mess with her mentors lover.For the love of God, FOLLOW HER. Bring popcorn and a camera with you.
>>34122133Wait, Sparkle, I think you're wasting a good opportunity here. If everyone's wearing adorable cat costumes, then that means we can go around looking for people in adorable cat costumes. There must be someone you'd like to see dressed as a kitty. Why not enjoy it while it lasts?
>>34122349Sparkle VS Raindrops.My money is on Raindrops giving her one hell of a ruffling.
>>34122133Tell her that hurting queen would mean hurting raindrop's girlfriend and as such gives raindrops free reign to injure her boyfriend.
>>34122133Does this have anything to do with her becoming a Quantum Beast?
>>34122133No sparkle please!Cat ears are IIIN!
>>34122133Call Raindrops so she can intercept Sparkle.
I wonder if ben got cat ears?
>>34122385Raindrops can't injure Ben. She could try her hardest, and he'd just stand there and lol.
>>34122133If she can do this, she can make it so people stop complaining about your chest size.
>>34122407>Catboy MMACatboy bloodsports?
>>34122446She could tell him that he disgusts her utterly and that she thinks he isn't a true magical girl fan and is just a creepy stalker abusing his power to coerce Sparkle into a relationship until Stockholm Syndrome sunk in and that he never truly cared about the feelings or emotions of the magical girls he obsessive followed in the first place.That ought to hurt him pretty badly.
>>34122468Catboy Monster MArauder
"Sparkle, come on! You look adorable in that! And everyone else is looking super cute too! Even me! Come on, it really isn't that bad!"MNS: "I'm just going to go talk to her.""Sparkle, please! That's Raindrops's girlfriend!"MNS: "....">She continues walking.>Rena calls Raindrops up and warns her of what might be going down. Raindrops says that she figured it would happen.>>34122318... I don't think she has any."Sparkleee! Ben might be wearing something!">She stops for just a moment before going on.>She eventually makes it to The Nile and finds Queen of the World.QotW: "Ah, welcome Peasant Sparkle. I like your new ensamble. I must say the black goes well with your-">Sparkle runs at her and scratches her face. Rena steps in to pull them apart but the Magical Girl is already walking away.>Queen of the World sits on the floor holding her wounded cheek.QotW: "I... I don't understand..."
>>34122510that's cuz ur dumblisten to raindrops next time
>>34122510"That wasn't talking!"
>>34122510"Sparkle hates mind control and people messing with her look. You made everybody put on cat stuff, right?"
>>34122358That's a good point.
>>34122510>QotW: "I... I don't understand..."She doesn't like looking like a cute cat
>>34122510Your eyes, mind control!
>>34122510The mind powers wore off, Queenie. And she was kinda super reeeeeally embarrassed.Also we think it's cute.
>>34122510Sparkle's just being shit as usual.
>>34122510Quantum beasts one time did a very bad thing to Sparkle, so she may sort of just resent you for existing. On top of that, she doesn't like being manipulated. Not many people do. Please tell us your mind control posters were an accident, because I thought you were past all that.
>>34122510>... I don't think she has any.jesus rena be careful what you say
>>34122510Ask Queenie if she's even aware that she's using her mind control powers, now. Where are her glasses?
>>34122510Try to stop Sparkle!Tell Queenie that what she did was wrong and if she did want someone to join her in having cat ears, we would have done it.
>>34122510Well, Sparkle does not have best of relationships with cats, ever since a quantum beast did a number on her and her friend.
>>34122687That was a bunny.
Wait, does Queen have a cat tongue to go with her new cat ears? Because that would suck for Raindrops.
>>34122510I think your new cat ear fashion made her angry because she started wearing it without realizing it. Because your poster has a secret command in there because you didn't wear your glasses.Really sorry.
>>34122622I do think they were an accident.I mean, who knew that a picture of queen also could be used to order?
>>34122780>implying she doesn't like it rough
>>34122641But... It's true."Sparkle hates mind control and people messing with her look. You made everybody put on cat stuff, right?"QotW: "I... I may have, yes.""I know it was you. How did you make it so the posters mind controlled people?"QotW: "Ah well... I had my Queen take a picture of me while I had my powers on and... It works well enough.""I thought you were past all that stuff? Where are your glasses?"QotW: "Of course I am, Peasant Rena. I..." For the first time Rena sees Queen look... Ashamed. "I just figured that the other peasants wouldn't appreciate my new look so I thought I would... Nudge them along. It's not mind control, I was simply suggesting something to them. That's different.""You could have just asked me. I totally would have worn some cat ears."QotW: "That is because you are a loyal peasant. The others are not quite so eager to follow in my example. Some may even think that perhaps cat ears look... Horrible."
>>34122867"Then they have shit taste and are plebs"
>>34122867Aww, she's just embarrassed about her new look.
>>34122867Tell her that her cat ears are cute, but she should have asked someone nicely to wear cat ears for her.Mind control is wrong.Also, can we contract?
>>34122867>cat ears look... HorribleHeresy.
>>34122867Hug your Queen, peasant Rena.
>>34122867Oh queen. They don't look horrible.They're super cute. Which made sparkle understandably embarrassed, since she's already super cute and has to struggle to be taken seriously.
>>34122867Rena, wear cat ears from now on
>>34122867Scratch her ears and tell her she is adorable.Also tell her that everyone has a right to an opinion, no matter how wrong it is, and it's not right of her to try and take that away from them.
>>34122867I hope Rena keeps the cat hoodie, it's cute
>>34122867Who? We'll punch them.
>>34122867So? Let them. You're great to Raindrops, Rena, and yourself. You're the Queen of the World, after all.You know what will cheer you up and show everyone? A fashion show. A cat-themed fashion show.
>>34122969Woh hold it!I'm for ear-scratchings, but ruffling her hair is over the line.
>>34123006>ruffling her hair is over the line.I never said to do that.
Side note. Is Raindrops around? If anyone would know what happened to the guy who made the dome and the AIs, it's her.
>>34122867Well, that's just how people think. Lots of people have different opinions. You can't force them to change. They didn't really start liking cat things; nobody even noticed them until the mind control wore off.
>>34122867"So you were just trying to make people like your cat ears, and it spilled over into them thinking they should wear them?"
>>34123038You didn't say it, but I know you were thinking it!
>>34122867But it works basically the same thing, doesn't it? You weren't changing how people really felt, you were only forcing them to act differently.
>>34122915And the QotW gets confused and thinks Rena is hitting on her.
>>34123128Nah, that's something between her and Raindrops. I wouldn't want to try to get in the way of that.
"Hey, cat ears are super cute and anyone who thinks otherwise is a pleb."QotW: "Perhaps...""And if they somehow don't like em so what? I like them, I'm sure Raindrops does, and you think they're cute too, right? That's all that matters. I mean, you're the Queen of the World! You know what? You should have a fashion show to show off how awesome those ears are to everyone. I think that would be great."QotW: "You think so..? Would you...Would you watch my show, peasant Rena?"
>>34123211Yes, so long as I don't, like, get shanghai'd into saving the dome from meteors or a friend about to commit suicide or something.I like my cat hoodie.
>>34123211>QotW: "You think so..? Would you...Would you watch my show, peasant Rena?"Of course
>>34123211What just happened to her face scratch?PANIC
>>34123211YES, WE WOULD QUEENIE.
>>34123211Don't just watch it, offer to participate! Everyone knows catbutt best butt.
>>34123231Note to self: hold on to the button. We don't want anyone committing suicide by meteor.
>>34123211Of course, seriously hope she doesn't lose that hoodie though
>>34123211"Sure!Oh, I've been meaning to ask, how does the whole making-focus things work? Can you just throw a bunch of them around like confetti, or do they take a lot of effort to make?"
>>34123211Queenie's eyes look so dead.
>>34123211Nah, we have better things to do. Let's go talk to Sparkle.
>>34123211Hell yeah! We could make it an annual thing.Did you know your cuts are migrating north? Oh God, what if they're going for the ears!?
>>34123211We'll even participate. And get everyone else to participate as well.That's what friends do, right?
>>34123315They're healing. It's just the wound disappearing.
"Not only will we help but we'll even participate. Heck, I'll get everyone else to help as well."QotW: "Peasant Rena... You are too kind.""This is what friends are for. Now let's get this started!"======================================>Rena hears an exapserated Raindrops over the speakers in The Nile.RD: Next up is The Queen of the World showing off the latest in cat bell fashion.">Queen takes the stage riding on Hissy and wearing a cat bell and... Little else.I... I said she shouldn't feel bad about her cat ears but...QotW: "Look upon your Queen, Peasants! My eyes are the latest and greatest fashion trend ever! It's a shame that none of you came up with it first but that's to be expected of peasants. Don't feel bad!">It's silent for a while before everyone starts clapping.I think I should just go... Seems like she's got support.
>>34123544THIS IS JUST GETTING STARTED, RENAYOU NEED TO SUPPORT QUEENIE ALL THE WAY
>>34123544Look, we told her we'd watch her show, so we're watching her show.Just sort of, you know, bashfully look into your drink for most of it.
>>34123544Glad to see lady R18 is already doing good work.
>>34123544CURSE YOU LADY R-18
>>34123544You should at leas try to come up with something. Like, maybe... a cat-ear hoodie with poofy pants?
you promised to participate rena, and you always keep your promises.
>>34123627I thought we were going to show off our cat-hoodie, yeah.It's fucking adorable.
>>34123544>My eyes are the latest and greatest fashion trend ever!Ears, right?
>>34123544Wail, what that tail connected to...Oh my.
>>34123544Note to self: talk to Lady R-18 about letting heroes have more control over the distribution of their footage. For example, allow them to have "private times" wherein no camera drones are monitoring them.
>>34123544Nonsense. You should see the other heroes and villains and what they're wearing.We're also on page 10. Any chance for a double thread?
>>34123544Oh yeah, she's about to get a LOT of support.Just to be sure, though, throw some money on stage before you leave. As a sign of gratitude.
>>34123665>what that tail connected toTo her tailbone.Because it's her tail.Because she is a catgirl.Idiot.
>>34123644I believe that's what she said. It's loud in here.I guess I'll stay for now... But when my turn comes up I'm going to be wearing my hoodie and, well, all my other clothes...I wonder what Bridgette is wearing actually.Maybe she's up next.>Queen of the World leaves the stage and Rena is able to turn her eyes back onto the stage.>Someone else leaps onto the stage taking Queen of the World's place.RD: "And here's Lolu showing off the brand new Kitty Bell and Garter set."....!!!!!!!>Rena has lost her innocence.End of Chapter 52
>>34123752No! Our innocence!

>>34123752>>Rena has lost her innocence.Next thread is going to be about how Rena can't stop thinking about dicks
So does this mean Rena FINALLY had her sexuality awakened?
>>34123752And on that day the world lost one of the wonders of the modern era.
So... The dome is the Truman Show?

>>34124309Enough to make note of it every few dozen posts? Yes, I'd say so.
