"Fine. I'll play your games, Witch." You growl this as you step forward, over the threshold and into the twisting, snarling darkness. Ignoring the bone-biting chill of the room that hit you like a combat knife between the ribs, your breath streaming out of your lips in white ribbons of smoke-like condensation as you lead the rest of your team to the only source of light in the damn place. Leading them to have tea with the fucking enemy.It's not the worst decision you've made so far, but something tells you that it'll be one for the books.
>>37611246+...No Callidus bullshit. Not as far as I can tell. + Wendy's pulse comes to you in a hurried stage whisper, quick but unhurried, tense but not panicked. + Then again, we are in an office building right in the middle of actual, literal hell, so it's kind of hard to tell with all the fucking interference. ++ Interference? + You turn towards her, and she meets your gaze with a shrug.+ You know. From all the souls screaming outside. Or all the goat-dildos trying to get in, driven insane by bloodthirst. Take your fucking pick, Kong. +...Hnh. Well. You'll take what you can get, then. + We'll be ready to move in case she tries anything, too. + Mami's pulse, in contrast, is a soft nudge against your senses - urgent enough to get your attention, but gentle enough not to disrupt your thoughts. + The first sign of treachery, and we'll go for her throat. ++ What about being diplomatic? + You couldn't help but pulse this back at her as you reach your chairs - wooden ones, carved from heavy teak, nothing that looked like they'd suddenly turn into full-body restraints the moment someone planted their ass in one.So yeah. Looks safe enough to sit in at least, so you do. + Certain types of diplomacy work better than others in certain situations, Chiaki-san as I'm sure you've already figured out by now. + Mami replies as she smoothens her skirt down before primly seating herself beside you. + Most of the time, diplomacy works when you sit around a table and talk. Other times, it works better with you ramming a gun into someone else's mouth to help them to agree to your terms faster. +[1/2]
>>37611256Both you and Wendy - who'd taken a seat at your other side - smirk at this. Truth be told, that was one of the things you really loved about the blonde - sure, she was softness and warmth and smiles all over, but there was also an edge to her, a subtle one that she revealed from time to time. It made her relatable, even if she was a retreat from all the shit you had to deal with.No time to think about that now, though. Not when the mission objective is sitting right in front of you, across the table, calmly sipping her tea as horned and bladed shadows twisted and trashed and cavorted behind her."...Witch, hm?" Ahriman says after a long, long while, looking down at her cup, before turning clear green eyes towards you, a smile curling her lips. Oriko's eyes. Oriko's smile. "I'd point out the delicious irony of you calling me that, Miss Matsuda, but I think we're quite past trading insults and barbs against each other. Not after all of this." She gestures with a kimono-sleeved hand to the shadow-covered floor, her own breath misting from her lips in a puff of white smoke. "All the killing. All the baiting. Chasing me to the depths of hell, where gods and mortals meet."She forgot the bit about her mailing you body parts. Body parts she made to look like Mami. What kind of sick fuck even THINKS like that?"..." Ahriman nods after a moment, the gesture seemingly more apologetic than anything else. "Lucius insisted upon that. She said it would be a clear warning for you and to the rest of the Ninth, and thus cow you into a position weak enough that you'd stay clear of us. It appears to have had the directly opposite effect."Heh. She got that right. When you broke Lucius' Soul Gem with your own hands, back at the Silent Room, you still felt her shame at being soundly beaten back at the stadium.[2/3]
>>37611266"I'm not entirely blameless for that, however. I let her go through with it. I didn't care at the time. I only wanted you to suffer. I wanted all of you to suffer." Her tea cup clinks against its saucer as she places a hand on her chest, her green eyes glowing bright in the darkness. "Both of us. My heart, and that of the girl who helped me manifest in this realm."...Oriko, then. She still hates you for Kirika. "You have a talent for understatement, Miss Matsuda." Ahriman smiles, and it looks genuine for the most bit, if not for the fact that it doesn't touch her eyes at all. "Her hatred burns hot enough to hurt, sometimes. She knows that she hates for the wrong reasons, that your killing Kirika is justified, but..." She shakes her head. "Her wounds are too deep for simple forgiveness to fill. You've taken so much from her that simply understanding why you did it isn't enough."Then what the fuck were you supposed to do, then? Just let Kirika live? Kirika was killing people left and right, and--Ahriman holds up a hand. "If I knew the answer to that, Miss Matsuda, we wouldn't be here. I wouldn't be here. But here we are, sitting around a table, in a building rooted firmly in the ruins of madness. I am not telling you this to find a solution, I am merely telling you this so you are aware of what you have done. Nothing more."..."Now. Since you've chosen the path of diplomacy to begin with - a choice that I've been made aware is a rare one for you to make - let's begin being diplomatic." That smile again, followed by another sip from her teacup. "Let's enjoy what civilities we can trade before the hostilities inevitably begin."Well. At least she knows where all this could go.[3/4]

>>37612107Looks good, Hat. One day, somebody will catch Midori doing all of these poses in front of a mirror.
>>37611329 >>37611374 >>37611390 >>37611403Right. Sure. Time to be diplomatic, like you agreed to.You clear your throat here, before asking your first question. Something that she called you earlier - what was it? Angel Slayer Reborn? Did you get that right?"Mostly, yes." Ahriman nods, taking another dainty sip of her tea. Beside you, you hear Wendy grumble something about it sounding like some sort of animated porn made three decades ago - and then, Mami hushing her a moment later....Yeah, alright. You can't help but agree with that. Shieldmaiden's kind of poetic in a dildo kind of way, but Angel Slayer Reborn--"It does sound a fair bit overdramatic, doesn't it?" Ahriman smiles again, this time a rather self-deprecating one that you can't help but consider pretty, much more so with Oriko's features giving it shape. "I thought similar when I first heard it, but that is what they called you. Or rather...what they will come to call you, if you continue down the path you've chosen for yourself."'They'? The kimono-clad girl nods with a schoolteacher's patience. "The souls of the Empyrean, Miss Matsuda. The ones of those you've already killed, and those who you will kill in the future. All of them. That is how they curse your name, from now to eternity, with all the rage and anguish of those unjustly murdered."She leans back on her chair as she presses one dainty hand against her temple, her expression one of dull, muted pain. "I hear them still, even now. Even the Witches that roam this particular slice of hell also scream your name to the winds, Miss Matsuda. Worshipping you and baying for your blood in the same breath. Never stopping, never ending--" A grunt passes her lips as her eyes flutter close.You and your entire team, in unconscious unison, tense at this. Your fingers curling around your weapons....She alright?[1/2]
>>37612284Ahriman laughs here, a delicate sound, and her eyes shine with amusement as she opens them again. "I'm supposed to the main objective of your Kill-Team, Miss Matsuda. That means that I am the target that needs to be put down before you can all go home. And you're asking if I'm alright, now?" She shakes her head. "I'm not turning into some hellish nightmare with cloven feet and goat horns, if that's what you're worried about. It's just that Miss Oriko is more...sensitive to the Akashic Realm than I had thought."Oriko's sensitive?Another nod. "The girl has untapped potential. Mountains of it. She would have made for a particularly insightful seer if she'd been contracted before I got to her. Foresight AND the ability to divine the Empyrean? I'm surprised your Incubator didn't jump at the chance to get her into your ranks, although I would hazard that Kirika had something to do with it."...Yeah. That sounds likely. Crazy bitch must've strong-armed Kyuubey not to contract Oriko, just like when you tried to dissuade him from even thinking of contracting Iori."In any case, that is where the title comes from. It is how this place refers to you, Miss Matsuda. I only thought it apt to use it for our first meeting." A chuckle. "Well, I would say it's our second meeting, but you weren't exactly yourself then."Well, She's right there, you agree. You weren't yourself back then. Back when Kharn fucked the Third up.A shadow flits across Ahriman's - Oriko's - features at that, and something cruelly-bladed flits from behind her ears before disappearing entirely. "...Yes. That is exactly what I meant. I'm glad you still remember it." She takes another sip from her teacup, before replacing it on its saucer. "Now, ask your second question, Miss Matsuda. While we're still being civil."...Struck a nerve there, then? Fine. What does she really want?[2/3]
>>37612300"Revenge," Ahriman says plainly. "Revenge for what you did to my Officio, and what you did to Miss Oriko. Vengeance for all the lives you've taken back then, and for the murder of Kure Kirika. I want you to suffer as I did. To suffer as Oriko did.""Ahriman--" Mami starts, standing up from her seat - but Ahriman silences her with another upraised hand."You asked. I answered. Those are my terms." The kimono-clad girl says, lowering her hand - and you catch a brief glimpse of the black veins threading through her arm as it is momentarily revealed by that movement. "And they would still be my terms, had I not seen what I saw when you sent yourselves screaming into hell after me."What? So...those aren't her terms? She doesn't really want to kill you, now?"I still do," Ahriman nods. "But I'm willing to set that aside for something else. Something much more important than the collecting of debts and the silencing of angry souls." She drains her cup empty of tea, before setting it aside and then holding out her hand towards you."I need to show you something, Miss Matsuda, but to do it in the most efficient way possible, I need your Soul Gem."What."Your Soul Gem, Miss Matsuda, in its passive form." She holds out her hand again. "Nothing untoward will happen to it, take my word for it." A smile curls her lips. "For what little my word is worth nowadays."How do you react?No.Hell no.Ask what the hell is so important that you need to hand over your Soul Gem for it to be shown to you.Hand it over.

>>37612362 >>37612370 >>37612413 >>37612421You glare at Ahriman for a couple of incredulous seconds before shaking your head....Yeah, okay. Fine. You'll admit that you're not exactly top class Warmaster material here. You're not as brutal as Kharn, you're not as useful as Malal and you're nowhere near as capable as Mami. You've got a reputation for being a lousy drunk, you smoked cigarettes by the carton, and you went through painkillers like candy. If the First was going to do one of its rare recruitment drives, you wouldn't even be on their list of potentials.But you're pretty sure you're not so stupid as to hand over your fucking Soul Gem to anyone who asks. And especially not to someone who'd been doing their level best to kill you in the first place.What the fuck is so important that she needs your Soul Gem to be able to show it to you, anyway? If she's going to ask you for your goddamn SOUL - the egg-sized, egg-shaped object that is the fucking KEY to your existence - then the least she could do is to tell you that, right?Ahriman's smile, while polite, is still cold. Colder than a walk-in fridge, cold as a gun."I suppose it IS hard for anyone to entrust something so important to someone who'd been a mortal enemy only minutes before." She muses after a moment's silence. "But at the same time, the message I have - the one I require to hold your Soul Gem in hand to give - is important enough that it requires a direct transference of thought, emotion and understanding. Anything less than that, and I risk the message being misinterpreted, or worse..." She looks pointedly to Mami. "...Stolen by the snakes you so readily allow in your company, Miss Matsuda."You bristle at this, at the same time Wendy murmurs something foul and American under her breath. Alright, she can get protective over whatever the fuck message this is, but you're not going to sit here and listen to her insult Mami.[1/2]
>>37613834Kyoko is also a goddamn furnace
>>37614234"...I apologize. I meant no offense or insult." Ahriman bows her head slightly. "I merely wanted to explain myself. Granted, I could have had my Culexus send the message for me, but..." She shrugs. "She is no longer with us, a fact that I've been made aware of moments earlier. My last officer and most ardent follower after Lucius, burnt to ash by the flames of her own blood."Well, fine. That's her reasoning. But what the fuck IS the message, then? What the fuck is it about?"About you, Miss Matsuda. About what you really are." It's here that Ahriman leans forward, both hands on the table. Her ice-cold, composed facade cracking slightly. Showing off a bit of the worshipful zealot that you'd fought and murdered over four lifetimes ago. "Why the Blessed Lady is so obsessed over you. Why she wants to taste your flesh so much."What? Mami and Wendy both glance your way, and you meet their puzzled gazes in turn. Shaking your head, you turn back to Ahriman, doubt and confusion warring inside you. ...If she's talking about what you think she is, then you already know, you hazard after a moment, your grip unconsciously tightening around Muramasa's handle. You don't need telling again, and she certainly doesn't need your Soul gem to repeat it to you."And you actually trust them?" No trace of sneering mockery in her voice, no honeyed tones of deception - just a serious, frank query with narrowed eyes and pressed-thin lips. "I know who told you, Miss Matsuda. I heard them tell you. And you trusted them immediately, just because they spoke with your voice and smiled with your own face." Ahriman shakes her head mournfully. "Still so naive. Still so trusting. Such a pity."[2/3]
>>37614266She turns towards you again. "They've been feeding you lies, Miss Matsuda. Nothing but lies." Ahriman's green-eyed stare roots you to your seat in its intensity. "You are not their last hope, their last incarnation, or whatever it is they tried to herald you as. This is what the Golden Weapons do - they trick you, they twist you into whatever they want you to be. Turning you into a blood-maddened berserker is only one of their endgames. One can turn you into a daemon obsessed with martial perfection, another will twist you into a knowledge-hungry scholar desperate for all the scraps of information you can wring from the Akashic Realm."Her smile, cold as it was, turns colder. "And there is at least one that will trick its wielder into believing that they have some sort of grand quest in front of them, a messianic destiny. But whatever they decide upon, well...it all comes down to bloodshed in the end. And the thirst of the Blessed Lady is slaked again then, but only for a time."She holds out her hand again. "Give your Soul Gem to me and I will dispel all the lies that had been made to root in your mind, Chiaki Matsuda. I will teach you why it is foolish to heed the words of ghosts. I know, for listening to them was what brought me and my Officio to ruin in the first place.""Chiaki-san..." Mami murmurs underneath her breath, looking at you. At the same time that Wendy breathes out your nickname.What do you do? This...you weren't expecting this. The Three Stooges, lying? It's...well, it hasn't exactly crossed your mind, and some of the things they told you and taught you were indeed useful, but...well, they did come from your Desert Eagle. Your Golden Desert Eagle.Then again...A moment's worth of focus, a snapping sensation of force being cinched tight, and your own Soul Gem manifests onto your cupped palm. [3/4]
>>37614266>Burnt to ashes by the flames of her own bloodWaitIs this confirmation that Red Culexus = Kyouko's sister?
>>37614286"Let me enlighten you." Ahriman's voice borders on a plea, almost begging. "For all that I've lost, and for all that you've killed, allow me this one last thing at least."Christ. Seems like a lot of people are asking you for favors lately.What do you do?Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead.

>>37614313>Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead.We got confirmation of most of it from Pinky herself (and partially from TTO).
>>37614313>[x]Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.
>>37614296Pretty much yes.>>37614313>[x]Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.
>>37614313>[X]Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.This is a truly terrible idea, but I'm curious.
>>37614313>[X] hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good. And have Wendy and Mami next to Ahriman with their weapons on her throat ready to act at the first suspicious movement.
>>37614313[x]Mami, musket at Ahriman's soul gem (or some other precaution)-[x] Hand over your Soul Gem
>>37614313>[X]Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead.
>>37614313>Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.
>>37614313>[x] Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead
>>37614313>Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead.We don't need lies replaced with other lies.
>>37614313>[X]Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead.I still don't trust Ahriman, so she should tell us while we have the patience for her bullshit.
[X] hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good. And have Wendy and Mami next to Ahriman with their weapons on her throat ready to act at the first suspicious movement.At least it's our ass if this turns out badly, instead of everyone else's
>>37614313[x]Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead.Oh HELL no!
>>37614313>[X]Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.
>>37614313>[X]Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.Fuck... I'm going to regret my choice no matter what.
>>37614313> Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.I know exactly what Chiaki and the three stooges are.>Braids fell for Sayaka>Dildoes fell for Kyouko>Murderface fell for Midori>Chiaki fell for Midori/Wendy/MamiAll of them, devoted to someone that isn't fucking Madoka. That's what sets them apart from homuhomu, that emotion that ISN'T for her alone.Chiaki is AI YO
>>37614313>Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead.
>>37614367Why not just SWAP soul gems?
>>37614313>[x]Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead.Ahriman hates us. Oriko hates us. Ahriman's zeal that came throuh turned her into a demon last time. And let's not forget that she herself is in a golden weapon right now. I'm not buying her story about clearing away the lies from the other golden weapons.
>>37614313>[x]Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.What could go wrong?
>>37614422Chiaki is Ai, the Clara-doll of love. Clearly.
>>37614438She's not meguca
>>37614313>Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead.Or we could ask her for the staff...
>>37614457That's what I was getting at, yeah
>>37614438Ahriman doesn't have a Soul Gem since she's in the Golden Staff, and Oriko was never a Meguca to begin with.So there's no soul gem to swap.
>>37614266[x]Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead."That's rich, coming from a wraith that dwells in a Golden Weapon herself. You sound exactly like what you're talking about.""Don't think that just because you know a few things, you can decide the truth for me."
>[X]Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.multiple sources, even if none of them are entirely true, the differences might help us suss out the truth
>>37614519Mah bad bro. I thought you were implying the Transcendent One
>>37614313>[x]Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you insteadNope
>>37614554Just a piece of her, if we wanna get technical
>>37614530We could have her hand over the staff, then.
>>37614313>>37614531Ooops replied to wrong post.
>>37614313>[X]Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead.We're the main character, surely Decu won't kill us at random like this. >>37614354 stole my image

>>37614313>[X]Hand over your Soul Gem. This better be good.Now or never right?
>>37614596There are fates worse than MC death.
Yo for real though Oriko is a huge bitch with no redeeming qualities. Why are we saving her again?
>>37614631Promise to both Kyouko and Kirika.
What if TTO was right.
>>37614631For our psychotic katana and our maybe-dead bro, if I recall correctly
>>37614313Thanks for voting!
>>37614626Yeah, probably.Hey, do you think we could be holding Muramasa while we do this?
>[x] Refuse. No deal. She can just tell you instead
>>37614631because muh promise
>>37614631To model fancy underwear for Kyoko.
>>37614596Indeed. Instead the MC gets disabled and all their loved ones die. Good job.
>>37614631Also we're mostly talking to Ahriman right now I think

I trust Mami to murder the fuck out of Ahriman if we're in danger.Or if shadowruns

>>37614350 >>37614354 >>37614359 >>37614376Slowly standing up from your seat - Muramasa gripped with your other hand - it's here that you make to hand over your Soul Gem to Ahriman. To the Prophet. To the main objective that you and your friends have been dying to kill.Any other day, you would've hit yourself - or even kneecapped yourself - at the very fucking CONCEPT of doing something like this. Giving the crystallization of your own SOUL to a high-value target, one that had sent hordes of screaming magical girls at you to end your life - this went beyond making bad decisions, this was making bad decisions on PURPOSE. You weren't all that bright or clever, sure, but you never thought yourself to be infected with the specific kind of stupid necessary to do something like this.But at this exact moment, Ahriman looked...well, sincere. More than that, she looked desperate. Not desperate in any cowardly, deceitful sense, where she only spoke what you needed to hear in order to leave yourself open to a killing blow - it was desperation that spoke of wanting to do something, anything, before it's too late. The desperation that made people rage against inevitability, to struggle against the dying of the light.Was it enough to make you look away from everything she'd done so far and deem her worthy of trust? Of course not. You're not kidding anybody. You've never been that forgiving or that trusting.But her desperation - and what she'd said - made her case one that was impossible to ignore, and something you just had to try. Because doing so otherwise would mean not knowing something that might help you deal with the situation you're in.As you hold out your Soul Gem, to drop it into Ahriman's waiting hand--[1/2]

>>37616760FYI, the rest of 4chan is nowhere near this friendly to newcomers. New folks are expected to glean this sort of information by lurking.But welcome to the madhouse, in any case!
>>37616760I have a question for you.Given you are new here, did you know anything of 4chan before coming here or are you coming in blind?
>>37616729Too late. You're next.

>>37616852I know a lot about 4chan, like /b/ or pedobear, for example. I knew that this threads existed, but never wrote anything in them. Today I have finally started
>>37616729I feel like the threads are getting progressively lewder with each passing month. So does Decu.

Hunted by not one but two gods. And I'm about to give my soul gem to the person- well technically two people- that want me incredibly dead. And I'll do it too. Because I have to know what I'm up against. I know these golden... things twist their users. Look at you for example. Or what happened to she who has been screaming at me the past two minutes in this sword to slit your throat. Even while you wear the flesh of her lover, she just wants blood. After you do whatever you need to do with my gem -be it lies, a curse or whatever- you will then probably try to kill me. Hopefully you will politely pass my soul gem back to me in between but we both know how this will end.''Mami. Wendy. If I die either leave the gold here or lock it where no one can get to it.''Ahriman. Catch.'
>>37616897I don´t have a Twitter account. I discovered MGNQ by pure luck

Am I the only one here who thinks this doesn't matter because Chiaki probably doesn't need her soulgem anyway?
>>37617169I'm also starting to think this.The moment it's crushed, the illusion fades and she reveals to the world (and herself) that she is Ai.
>>37617140i dont need it, im already finished for nowin more ways than one~
>>37617169That would probably leave everyone in the room with some uncomfortable questions
>>37617169No you are not (but I still think its bad, maybe she can live without it, but the soulgem is linked to Midori if I recall correctly)
>>37617169Why do you think Chiaki doesn´t need her soulgem? Because of the link with Walmart Night? No, I think it is still neccesary. Nothing has given us a solid proof of what you are saying is true

>>37617237SHUT UP, YOU FOOL! DON´T GIVE DECU IDEAS

>>37617224Chiaki has been called a witch multiple times and the last time someone examined it Chiaki got a hint that the thing is really fucking weird..It's just a thought. I didn't actually participate in the vote.

>>37616992Attarou moans beneath you as force the tip of your cephalopod against the entrance of his boy-mollusk. With a pop, your slick eel slides into his ocean cavern. You slowly work into his depths, and he pants heavily as you dive into his Marinas Trench. Like a mollusk, his walls clamp down tightly on your squid, sending pleasures tingling down your member, like he were an educated prostitute. The sweet mollusk-smell of your love making permeates the air as you begin to thrust faster, churning Attarou's waters. His arms give and he collapses, face down to the bed. You take advantage of it, and reangle yourself to thrust even deeper as your scuba diver reaches the very depths of his boy-mollusk, touching and rubbing against the surface of his rough coral reef.

>>37615547 >>37615538 >>37615564 >>37615567+ Full of bad ideas, remember? + Even in this situation, you couldn't help but crack the smallest of smiles towards your ex. + And if it does go to shit, well...+ You turn back to Ahriman, giving the kimono-clad blonde a nod. + I have you and Mami to back me up, right? ++ ...Yeah, but... + Wendy starts, clearly hesitant, before letting out a sigh of tense resignation. + ...She hurts you, I kill her. I don't care if Sakura gets pissy at me for saving her best friend's ass instead of this uppity bitch. Knowing her, she'll probably thank me afterwards. +Heh. Yeah. Kyoko probably would.You close your eyes and take a deep breath, forcing your pounding heartbeat to slow - and it's here that you finally commit the one sin that a Magical Girl should never even think about.Of your own free will, you hand over your Soul Gem - in all its darkened, black-spiked glory - to someone you knew nothing about and trusted even less.Gave it to them, to do as they wished.Ignoring the sudden prickling feeling of impending doom making the hair on your neck stand up on end as you watch Ahriman close her dainty fingers around the bauble, bringing it closer to her face."Amazing," The blonde breathes, clear awe in her voice, her words escaping her lips in prayer-like reverence. "This is what the Soul Gem of one such as you looks like? It is...it is magnificent, Miss Matsuda. Sublime in its corruption, majestic in its malevolence." She licks her suddenly-dry lips, a gesture that you can't help but see as somewhat erotic, despite the fact that she's fucking talking about your SOUL. "I...I can almost taste the despair within. It's calling to me--""Stop looking at the fucking thing like you're about to shove it up your ass," Wendy suddenly growls, completely apropos of nothing. "And do whatever the fuck you were supposed to do already--"[1/2]
>>37617650>all that useless meat
>>37617619>waifu wars againdammit anons
>>37617619That's not how you spell "Luvia Edelfelt"OH HOHOHOHOHO TOHSAKA RIN PLEASES OLD MEN FOR MONEY!
>>37617710"Wendy, please." Mami shushes her, her expression just as tense, just as drawn as Wendy's - but where Wendy was already growling and on the edge of panicked anger, Mami was still cool. Still professional. "Let her do what the Warmaster allowed her to do."Ahriman glowers at your ex, before shaking her head, a pale flush of pink on her cheeks. "...Very well. Miss Matsuda? You might want to sit down for this, and hold on to something. This will be a bit...bracing."Sit down? You manage to tear your eyes away from the horrific sight of your Soul Gem resting in someone else's hands long enough to look at Ahriman. Bracing? What...what the fuck is she going to do with your Soul Gem, anyway? Because if it's going to hurt--A flash of light, outside the building, bright enough to shine through the blood-crusted windows and penetrate the darkness of the floor you're in, cuts you off as it illuminates everything for a split-second, blinding you temporarily. When your sight returns a moment later, you see Ahriman smiling from across the table, your Soul Gem sparking in her hands."Life is full of pain, Miss Matsuda. Some moments just involve more than others." You open your mouth to reply - but only a scream tears its way out of your lungs as the pain smashes into you like a truck, knocking you off your feet, sending you tumbling back against the chair, before depositing you into a shrieking, writhing mess on the floor. Your fingers curling into arthritic claws as all the muscles of your body suddenly snap taut in a cramp, as if suddenly flooded with lactic acid. "KONG!" Wendy screams. "AHRIMAN, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING TO HER--""I AM REMAKING HER!" The blonde shrieks back. "I AM BRINGING HER TRUE FORM TO LIGHT, AND YOU CANNOT STOP ME!"[2/3]
>>37617710>"Stop looking at the fucking thing like you're about to shove it up your ass,"kek
>>37617739>>"I AM REMAKING HER!" The blonde shrieks back. "I AM BRINGING HER TRUE FORM TO LIGHT, AND YOU CANNOT STOP ME!"
>>37617739The pain is indescribable. You're no stranger to the sensation, as you've made clear countless times - but this was something else. This wasn't just the pain of a grievous stomach wound or the searing fire of poison designed for torture - it was both, combined with the ache of having all your bones broken all at once. Almost enough pain for your body to attempt shutting itself down to preserve what sanity you had left - but not quite enough to actually tick over to that blessed, stunted, comatose relief.The pain. The pain is taking you to pieces.With your entire being consumed by fire, you hear - rather than feel - something tearing away from your back, just above your left shoulderblade. Another follows it, mirroring the action on the other side, your flesh and costume giving way to it in wet, juicy rips. Blood, hot and black and sweet, floods from your mouth as you gasp for air, and you watch with tear-blurred eyes as the gory puddle that had accumulated underneath you slowly moves to seep into your costume. Congealing into it. Staining it red, then black. Turning it into a mockery of its former self, before it wore the stains of a mission's worth of kills.The pain abates enough for you to see your hands. No longer bare, they were now sheathed in black silk gloves, the tips ending in claws. Reminding you of the demon cackling inside your Shield.No. Not Pinky. Not her.You stare past your hands, and into the pool of blood in front of you.Your breath catching in your throat as you see the Transcendent One looking back at you, her skeletal wings spread. The look of utter horror in her face matching yours.No. That's...no. This can't be real. This has got to be some kind of Callidus bullshit, it's--[3/4]
>>37617739>"I AM REMAKING HER!" The blonde shrieks back. "I AM BRINGING HER TRUE FORM TO LIGHT, AND YOU CANNOT STOP ME!"
>>37617739>>37617776KEK RESCINDED FUCK FUCK FUCK
>>37617776>Your breath catching in your throat as you see the Transcendent One looking back at you I think we just lost.
>>37617776Holy shit if even Homucifer is horrified.....
>>37617776"Do you see?" Ahriman cackles, pointing towards you, a mad gleam in her eyes. "DO YOU SEE?! It was never the Blessed Lady that was at fault - it was you all along, FALSE GODDESS! It is YOU who will lead us to ruin!" With your Soul Gem in her one hand, she reaches behind her to draw out a knife - one with a wicked black blade, as sharp as hate and as black as death. The knife itself seemingly made out of pure, solid shadow. With a speed fueled by rage, Ahriman raises it over her head, its point aimed to end your miserable existence."This is for Erebus,' She whispers. "Erebus and Kirika."She stabs downward--"TIRO. FINALE."
>>37617821>Tiro FinaleSee guys? Nothing to worry about.
>>37617843Who said she shot Ahriman.
>>37617843inb4 mami runs out of magic and witches out because of it.
>>37617843Why did you jinx it
>this entire thread
>>37617821Bless Mami.And we really should have worked out that it was a terrible idea when Decu gave us 3 chances to back out.
>>37617820You read wrong. Chiaki saw her own reflection in that pool of blood.
>>37617858Either way:nothing to worry about
>>37617821Alright everyone, that's it for tonight's thread! Let's have another one tomorrow night! Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always great!We have a couple of writeups right now, so questions answered while they're being posted!
An Irish Girl's Wish Part 3: Let's Be Friends! "Umm, m-my name is Ashlin McHale. I-it's nice to meet you all." The room was silent as the eyes of a black haired, silver eyed girl, a short golden blonde, and a tall red head fell upon the petite Irish girl. She stood there, fidgeting all about, her silver-blue armored fingers clinking in the silence. A violet metal hand slapped onto Ashlin's shoulder, making the girl jump in surprise. "Sorry ladies, Ashlin seems to be a bit shy." The hand retreated to its owner, a tall, wide built Light Ironform painted a soft violet. It placed its hands on its thick, metal pockmarked hips, bringing the girls eyes, including Ashlin's onto it. "My name is Serah Hanon, Secrutix of the Xiplos order. I'm here to introduce your newest squad member, little Ashlin here." The Light Ironform's red-pink spherical sockets scanned the room, resting on the tall, dark skinned red head. "Strike Leader Maria Brea, come here." The fiery eyed Eversor stepped away from her bunk, placing the greatsword she was sharpening onto her cot. "Welcome to Strike Team Malleus. I'm the leader of this ragtag bunch, Maria Brea." She extended a hand, Ashlin giving it a firm shake. "The shorty over there-""I HEARD THAT.""-is Edea Willows." Ashlin's emerald eyes glanced over to the tiny blonde, a mechanical hand waving at her. "Don't mind Edea, she-" Serah held up a hand, bring Maria to a halt. "My apologies, but I have other business to attend to. I should return before the days end and have everything sorted out." The tall Ironform turned and left, leaving Ashlin alone with these new people. "Don't just stand there, take a seat somewhere." Ashlin felt a gentle push as Maria bumped her forwards. "None of us are gonna bite, so come on." 1/8
>>37617821>Oriko deadWe failed our promise, guys.WELL DONE.P.S. I voted for this
>>37617882My apologies, the horror destroyed my reading comprehension for now.That knife, that was the same as the one we were stabbed with in Walpurgis right?>>37617904And of course its a Cliffhanger........Eh, thanks for running Decu!
The petite Irish girl shakily stepped forward, finding a seat on a vacant cot. The other three girls chuckled at her, making Ashlin blush deeply, her reddened cheeks clashing with her creamy white skin. "S-sorry, I'm n-not used to being a-around new people." Ashlin's feet began to tap on the floor out of nervousness. "But I-I hope I can work well with you guys! Maria let out a hearty laugh, sliding over to the silver eyed girl. "Oh, I almost forgot. The last member of our little entourage is Natalie Miles." Ashlin beamed at the newly introduced Eversor, only to have a glare returned. "No worries Ashlin, she won't bite. Nat can be a bitch sometimes, but she means well." Natalie begrudgingly got up at Maria's behest, wealking and extending an open hand to the armor clad magical girl. "Pleasure to meet you, Ashlin. Do as you're told and you'll be fine." Ashlin took the hand in her own, gently shaking it in a show of good faith. "It's n-nice to meet you all. I hope we can be friends!" ~~~~~~~~~~ The air was silent as Ashlin stood beside Natalie, their superior staring at them from behind her desk. The emerald eyed Eversor shivered, her soul gem 'burning' from the intense mood in the room. "So, from the top. I want you two to tell me just what the hell happened and why." The bald headed Ironform gave a blank stare at the two raven haired girls, pointing a finger at Natalie. "I'll start with your side." "Umm...how should I put it." Natalie thought for a moment, crossing her arms before speaking. "She insulted my friends. Plain and simple. I'm not gonna sit and let someone talk shit about my friends like that." She shot a quick glare at her fellow magical girl, making Ashlin flinch in surprise. "So, I got mad. How can ya blame me?" 2/8
>>37617821>she reaches behind her to draw out a knife - one with a wicked black blade, as sharp as hate and as black as death. The knife itself seemingly made out of pure, solid shadow. So it WAS Ahriman who tried to kill Chiaki and Kharn back then, with th black knife and shit. And I have the feel that it was on Pinky orders, to desencadenate a series of events that will lead to Malal death
>>37617876The way I counted the vote, we did, and decided to ask her for the staff instead. Don't know maybe I missed some
>>37617876So she told us that the TTO is at fault for everything. That's very old news, but this transformation thing is a bit troubling.
>>37617897There are MANY things to worry about right now>>37617904ffffffffffffffyou magnificent bastard
The room grew silent again, Natalie still with her arms crossed, Lyssa staring at the girls, with Ashlin staring at the floor. She fiddled with her fingers as Lyssa aimed her glowing eyes at the tiny Eversor. "Now, your side, Ashlin." Ashlin fumbled her words, taking a few seconds to form a coherent sentence. "W-we were talking, Natalie smacked my book out of my hands, we both said some things and then..." The Irish girl froze as her mind tried to find the proper wording. "...then all I saw was her on top of me, hitting me." She hastily finished how Nokota cleaned and healed her up, Lyssa simply staring and taking it all in. "I'm sorry, Miss Forax. I didn't mean to cause any trouble." "Eugh...if this was any other situation, I'd have you sent back to the Olympia for proper punishment, but all things considered," A short wave of her arm brought the girls attention to the slow construction going on outside. "we don't have such luxury. So we'll have to deal with it here." Standing, Lyssa walked over to the far window, watching the busy body Light Ironforms outside. "...I remember being told you don't like Ashlin very much, right Natalie?" The silver eyed Eversor snapped to attention at her name. "Y-yes Miss Forax. Ever since she was assigned to our squad, I felt I wouldn't like her." Natalie sighed, a tired look taking her face. "And today was just the end result. I knew something like this would happen, but not this fast." 3/8
>>37617821RIP in peace Oriko you were a bitch and i dont know why we bothered trying
"I don't need to know the whole story, just your opinion." The mechanized magical girl spun around to face Ashlin and Natalie, her LED eyes 'closing' in thought. "...very well, this is your punishment. No arguing, no complaining . For the next seven days, you and Ashlin will be on guard duty. No sleep whatsoever until your punishment is over. You may be trained for lack of sleep, but still, your body naturally needs it." The girls gasped at the revelation, Lyssa bringing up a metal hand to shush them. "You two need to learn to get along, and this will also work as a team building exercise. Keep each other awake, and watch out for each other. Maria and Edea will give you a one hour break every 12 hours for food and such, so use that time wisely." Ashlin stepped forward, bringing her forearms over her chest. "Umm, I know you said not to complain, and I'm ready to take our punishment, but I've..." The petite girl fiddled with her thumbs, nervousness washing over her. Her gaze met the floor as she spoke. "I've never finished all of my training with what was happening to me., so that mi-" "Yes, and?" Ashlin was quickly cut off, her superior staring at her intently. "You'll just have to deal with it. Your punishment is final, and that's all there is to it." Lyssa pointed to the door, commanding the two girls to leave. "I have unfinished business with Miss Williams. You are dismissed." ~~~~~~~~~~ 4/8
I hope we get to keep the wings at least, they are cool as hell
3 nights passed for Ashlin, each night slowly becoming harder to stay awake. Multiple times she found herself dosing off, only to have Natalie smacking the back of her head to snap her back awake. Tonight was no different for the young Eversor. The setting sun hung on the horizon as the two black haired magical girls stared off at the wind swept plains. Ashlin gently slapped her face in a futile attempt to stay awake, giving a worrying stare to Natalie. Her crimson clad companion simply scoffed. "At least you don't have to hit me again." Ashlin chuckled softly, shaking her head of drowsiness. A cool wind began blowing, making the two shiver. "It's pretty cold out, huh Natalie?" The silver eyed girl curled her cloak around her, bringing the hood on as well. "Kinda, I guess. Could be better." Natalie turned to Ashlin, staring at the armored magical girl. "You're probably cold as hell, with you being half fucking naked." "Yeah...but I'm fine. The cold will help keep me awake, that's for sure." Ashlin bobbed back and forth on the heels of her clawed feet, leaning on the railing for balance. "What about you? Skirt and leggings don't seem very warm." "This cloak'll keep me warm. It's thicker than my costume anyways. And it makes for a good blanket and pillow too." Natalie pulled her cloak away, extending it to Ashlin. "Here, feel it." Whisking away her gauntlets, Ashlin took the crimson material in her hands, feeling the rough texture of wool. "Oh wow! It DOES feel warm! But...it's wool. Isn't your costume made out of cloth and silk?" "Yeah. This cloak isn't actually part of my costume." Ashlin let out a slight gasp, eyes growing wide. "Huh. I guess you didn't know that. A friend of mine made it for me. Kept me warm during the winter in Mitakihara. It means a lot to me, ya know?" 5/8
>>37617961Yeah, I'm afraid now. W-what if Chiaki becomes an even bigger dildo now?
>>37617943Thank you for reading!
Ashlin stared up at the moon, entranced by the beauty of the massive chunk of space rock. Her mind wandered as she stared; to the few friends she made in Canada, the painful memories of her surgeries and augmentations, and most importantly, her mother. Thoughts of her time in Ireland, the death of her father, and the move to Canada to stay with their relatives came soon after, making the extremely tired Eversor sigh in exhaustion. "Hey Ashlin...I, uh, I have something to say." Ashlin snapped back to attention as Natalie got her attention, rubbing her eyes. "Oh, sorry, zoned out for a sec. Wh-what's up?" The silver eyed Eversor fiddled around in her cloak, her eyes staring at the cold metal catwalk beneath them. "Listen, I'm...I'm sorry for getting in a fight with you." Ashlin watched as Natalie stepped towards the railing, leaning on it, eyes still on the catwalk. "I wasn't thinking straight, and what you said just pissed me off really hard. I should've kept a cool head." Ashlin stared in awe; from her experience, Natalie didn't seem the type to apologize, but here she was, saying those two simple words. The young Irish girl looked away, staring off into the plains again, gathering her thoughts and figuring a response. "Umm, thanks, I guess...sorry for saying what I said too." She glanced over to her crimson cloaked companion, seeing she was still staring down. "I guess we both said some things we shouldn't have." 6/8
>>37617952There was an entire squad of people with those knives, what makes you think she was the source ?Not to mention Ahriman was already dead and betrayed by Pinky then.
Natalie whipped her head around, shooting Ashlin a seething glare. "I spoke the truth, and that's that. Don't get me wrong, beating your face in wasn't what I should've done," She threw her hood back, her voice turning to a deep growl. "but I still think you're a coward and a fucking crybaby, and I will stand by that statement till the day I die." She kept her eyes on Ashlin for a few more moments, eventually turning back to the grassy, rocky fields in front of them. Before Ashlin could respond, Maria and Edea stepped up onto the catwalk. "Oi, everything okay up here? Thought we heard you two arguing?" The tall redhead placed her hands on her hips, walking over to Natalie and bending down to her eye level. "I don't have to intervene here, do I?" "No, no, everything's fine." Natalie turned and walked towards the catwalk stairs, bumping into Ashlin's shoulder. "Was simply getting some shit straight, is all." She trotted down the steps, leaving the other 3 girls alone.Edea stepped up beside her girlfriend, waving a hand at Ashlin. "Well, you better enjoy your short break while you can." Slipping an arm around Maria's waist, the short blonde nuzzled on Maria's shoulder. "So warm..." Ashlin nodded and began to step off the catwalk before being stopped by Maria. "Hey Ash, I wanted to pass an idea by you." The armor clad magical girl turned to her superior, yawning. "After your punishment is over, and the Heavy Ironforms come back, what do you say to me training you? I know haven't had full Eversor training, so I figure once we have time, I could go over what you haven't been trained on." "Oh, that's fine, I guess. I...can't really remember what I've done and what I haven't so..." "Don't worry about that. We'll do what we can, okay? Now go, enjoy your break." ~~~~~~~~~~7/8
>>37618050Decu Decu! In your opinion, If Homusatan and the PST TTO were in a contest to be the biggest asshole to their respective archenemy, who would win?
>>37618034>Chiaki proceeds to go about her business as usual, bar a few odd looks.
>>37617904On a scale of 10 to SHIT GUYS WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU IDIOTS DOING, how badly did we fuck up this time?
>>37617904Thanks for the show. I love this quest. I never know which way its going to go.
The week of pure hell finally ended, leaving Ashlin a walking mess of exhaustion and auditory and visual hallucinations. Natalie on the other hand, was merely tired, gloating that she could go another week without sleep. Maria attempted to take her up on that challenge, but the silver eyed magical girl declined. The two bleary eyed magical girls trudged to their sleeping quarters, Ashlin nearly tripping over the entrance.Neither said a word as they de-transformed and slipped on their sleepwear, crawling onto their cots. Ashlin snuggled against her pillow, mumbling as she closed her eyes. "Sleep...is so good. So good. Goodnight Natalie...""...yeah." ~~~~~~~~~~ Everything was dark. Explosions rocked Ashlin's mind as she peered into the darkness. Part of her focused on the noise around her; explosions, gunfire...and screaming."WAKE UP!" A flash of light, and Ashlin bolted upright to the sounds from her sleep. She looked towards the door, Edea standing in the frame, ragged breaths coming from her bloodied and battered self. Ashlin's heart started racing, slipping off her cot, nearly tripping over her own feet. "Wha-what's going on?" "We're under attack! A group of locals got us by surprise! We're pinned down by gunfire and I think mortar, come on!" Edea bolted from the door, leaving the now stunned Ashlin alone with Natalie. "We-we're under attack?" Ashlin's body froze as fear took her. "No time to waste, Ashlin." Natalie pulled off her soul gem, transforming into her black and scarlet costume, and pulled on her cloak. Her scythe formed in her hands as she whipped around to Ashlin. "Battle is the great redeemer, the fiery crucible which the only true heroes are forged. Try to not get yourself killed." 8/8
>>37618090It's a tie, hands down!

>>37618071Oh, shit, it´s true. Ahriman was dead. Sorry.But remember how Pinky expressed her disgust towards Malal, and told Chiaki that it was her who killed Malal by an elaborate plan. That´s why I think Pinky is behind this
>>37617904Thanks for running Decu.

Magical Juggernaut Heather Crunch and Magical Ascetic Valentina TenkoA loud voice snaps me out of my torpor. It’s coming from my cell, informing me that I have a phone call. I flip the display open to see that it’s coming from the number listed for Kyoko, and shows a picture of her grinning. Hesitantly, as if I can’t believe what I’m seeing, I take the call.“Kyoko?” I ask.“Yo, Hothead!” rings Kyoko’s cheery voice, “why’d ya leave me eight messages of you blubberin’?”“I was worried,” I confess, slightly embarrassed by how I reacted. “I thought everybody suddenly wanted nothing to do with me.”Kyoko just laughs at this. “Nah, I just couldn’t find my phone again,” she admits sheepishly. “Turns out I left it in the fridge this time.”“HAH!” I laugh in return, my spirits rising in relief. “YOU should tie it to a string or something, Kyokoooo!” I scold her!“Yeah, Sayaka really chewed me out when she found out about it,” she mutters, then returns to cheerful form. “Anyway,” she asks, “about that, uh, ‘love’ question training whatchamahoosit?”“Oh, right!” I exclaim, having forgotten all about that.“If I had to describe it, it’s like a potluck dinner.” Kyoko informs me, sounding slightly embarrassed. “’cuz everybody’s gotta chip in and bring somethin’ to the table, an’ sometimes people get greedy and don’t share with ya.” She then hastily adds, “but even then it’s really good and totally worth it!”“Got it!” I tell her, committing her answer to memory. “You have my UTMOST GRATITUDE!”“Hey, no problemo. Ya gonna be okay?” she inquires.“ABSOLUTELY!” I declare! “For, even if the rest of the world has forsaken me, I-““YOU HAVE A PHONE CALL!” my phone screams, startling me. Kyoko’s face is switched out for the smirking portrait of Madge, indicating just who’s calling.“-am getting a call from Madge,” I finish lamely.[1/10]
“Yeah, better not keep Her Majesty waitin’,” Kyoko answers sympathetically, then initiates her goodbyes. “So long, Hothead! And have a MAXIMUM day!”“FAREWELL, KYOKOOOO!” I respond, adding, “AND GIVE MY REGARDS TO STRINGBEEEAN!” before she hangs up.I take the next call, and proceed to get a tongue-lashing from Madge. She tells me not to be a drama queen just because everybody’s too busy to talk. After a bit more dialogue between us, she then gives her response: love is something you have to invest time in. And then hangs up as soon as I tell her I got it.However, I soon get another call, this time from Cress. She also chides me for my behavior, and gives an answer: love is a treasure more valuable than any other. Oddly sappy for her, but okay. Bluebell calls next, asking what the hell is happening, and saying love needs to be stoked but gives light and warmth (that’s just fire, though…). After her, the Warmaster tells me to suck it up, and says it comes in the most unlikely places – that love can bloom even on the battlefield. I am mortified, but no longer despairing.And then Slam calls. She earnestly asks me if everything is alright, and keeps asking if anything is still bothering me. The more she asks, the closer to a lie my affirmations become, as I start to feel guilt for my lack of faith in these people, and for involving Slam in the first place. She doesn’t have an answer for the Soul Temperer’s assignment, but she promises to get Cooldown to call me back. Sure enough, minutes later, Cooldown begrudgingly calls back, says I’m not blocked, and tells me that love is like a greasy meal: delicious, bad for you, and something you’ll keep coming back for.…I should have known that if they wanted me gone, they wouldn’t have been passive aggressive about it. But I didn’t have faith in them and believed that they had abandoned me. Just thinking about how weak my trust in them was makes me cringe from humiliation.[2/10]
>>37618249>We're still Chiaki, right?>Hahaha!I'm scared.>>37618252>picDamn, that's cute.
I haven’t been this disappointed with myself since I spectacularly failed to cheer up Miss Valnikov. Finishing my call, I head into the kitchen and pour myself some cereal, not really in the mood to cook anything. It tastes like wheat gravel, but I eat it all before I move on to exercising.My confidence is shaken, though, and so my energy isn’t coming back either. It takes a tremendous amount of effort just to perform the bare minimum one hundred push-ups, crunches, and squats. I think I’ll have to save the running for later. For now I’ll just get cleaned up. Next I step into the bathroom and start the shower. Stripping off the nightgown and underwear, I step in and work the shampoo into a lather. Then I scrub down my body and rinse everything off, and get out to brush my teeth and dry my hair. Looking at my face in the mirror, my eyes look dull, as though the fire in them was extinguished, and my face is stuck in a frown. On a whim, I press my fingers against the corners of my mouth and drag it up into a smile. My eyes spark a little in response, but I’m still bothered by what happened, so it doesn’t stick. I mean, I’m in a better mood than I was a few hours ago, but it’s soured by the doubts I had in the people I confided in.There’s no point in lingering around. With that stuff done, I find myself drawn back to putting on the outfit they made for me. It’s relevant to what the Soul Temperer said I should do – go around without transforming all the time. Unfortunately the maid uniform is wrinkled and wet from being wrung out last night. It feels cold and clammy against my skin, so I try to dry it off with the hair dryer. It helps a little, at least, but it’s still severely wrinkled.…I don’t want to go back to sleep, but I can’t do much else until I’m supposed to meet with the Soul Temperer. So I examine and take apart the beam katana I won off of Nakajima.-----[3/10]
Once I’ve put everything back together, I flick the switch. The beam katana hums and projects a stable green blade of energy. I wave it slightly to test it, and see that its shape remains consistent. I seem to have reassembled it correctly.There’s no receiver at the end to give it a definite size, which is why that massive attack she did was even possible after she switched off the limiters. This one wasn’t designed to sustain a blade of such size for more than a few seconds. In fact, there was a failsafe designed to power it off after it reached a certain temperature to keep it from exploding or destroying the motherboard. It still would scorch an ordinary person’s hands until they were charred black, but it’s better than being perforated with white-hot shrapnel.And from what I can tell, she made it herself. A stylized drawing of her face was on the motherboard, anyway. I have to hand it to Nakajima, this is one of the most well made beam katanas I’ve ever come across. I power it off and put it back into my inventory.This sort of thing usually makes me happy. To take a weapon apart, see how it works, how it was made, and then put it back together. Whenever I felt depressed, this always cheered me up. However, this time, after everything is fitted back together, I am still troubled. I feel better, yes, but I can’t quite get over how I let myself think that all my comrades had betrayed me. And, more than I’d like to admit, that fear of crushing, suffocating loneliness still hangs over me. Like this is just a dream, and I’ll wake up to find myself isolated from everyone I ever knew.…I’m sincerely starting to miss Nakajima. This issue may be worse than I had originally been led to believe. Or it may be sheer desperation. Neither possibility is good. I have to do –something- about this, but I can’t just call everyone up again so soon.I’ll just go see the Soul Temperer and see if we can start early today.-----[4/10]

My return to the Seventh Officio building is depressingly uneventful, so I had nothing to occupy myself with other than my own thoughts. Thoughts where that voice of self-loathing kept giving its unwanted opinion on things. After a while I shut it out by pointing out it was wrong about me being abandoned, and stopped listening to what it had to say. Again, I feel better than I did, but it’s nowhere near my usual vigor and energy.To my relief, the gates of the Seventh are open to me now. The monastery itself has its doors open as well, as though welcoming me back. Heading in and through the building, the utter silence is oppressive enough to put me on edge. I go towards where I’m very sure I remember the Soul Temperer’s room being and throw the door open, not wanting to linger out here any longer. I was right on the money. The rows and rows of swords lining the wall confirm it. And there she is, in the center of the room, but she’s not really reacting to my arrival. She’s sitting in front of a small table with some incense sticks burning, and she has her eyes closed, as if she’s sleeping. I walk over and wave my hand in front of her face – nothing. Is that what meditation is like? If that’s the case, I wasn’t even –close- to this state the other day. And if I were surrounded by weapons while meditating, I would probably just have dreams I couldn’t share with anyone.…Okay, this persistent pessimism is pissing me off.I lean in close to the Soul Temperer, close enough to smell peaches, and take a deep breath. “Soul Temperer!” I shout in her ear, attempting to rouse her and take my mind off my inadequacies.[5/10]
The Soul Temperer shivers slightly and makes a small noise before opening her eyes, her formerly blank expression curling into a smile. “Have I reached heaven?” she asks me. “Am I dreaming?”“I understand that I am a sight to behold,” I answer her, trying to look confident, “but no. I just came in early today.”The Soul Temperer smiles slightly wider, rubbing her eyes. “Same thing, then,” she says.“Speak plainly!” I order her. I don’t have the patience for her parables!“Is there a particular reason you have graced me with your presence so early today, Truth-Seeker?” Tenko inquires, studying me with an eye of appraisal. “You have a look of someone who has tried to move mountains.”“Hah! I was told a long time ago never to try that again,” I confess, reminded of my failed attempts to make a Mount Heatherest. “But I digress. For now the –real- training of the day can begin!”“Hold, Truth-Seeker” the Soul Temperer tells me, her smile vanishing. “The blight surrounding your soul has not abated. It has merely changed its form.”“But I did what I was told to do!” I argue, stamping my foot in irritation.“And that is what we will focus on later,” she says, pointing to the ground. “Right now, however, you will sit.”Perhaps she had something in mind. For now, I did as she asked and sat on the ground, my legs crossed and back straight. The Soul Temperer’s gaze lingers on my legs, but otherwise she seems serious.“So,” she begins, “the avalanche comes forth with the throw of a single stone.”“Pardon?”“What is it that is troubling you this time, Seeker of Wisdom?” she clarifies.[6/10]
>>37618332The Warmaster of the first, the most powerful officio. Also, Horus Lupercal, and the big sister of Haruka
I take a deep breath that comes out as a sigh. “Doubt,” I respond. “I called everyone I knew to answer your question. All but one of them didn’t pick up, and the one that did hung up immediately.” The Soul Temperer nodded along in understanding, bringing her hands up to rest her chin on them, so I continued. “I called them many times and nobody answered, and I started to despair. I began listening to that wicked voice of self-loathing that insisted it was my fault they weren’t calling.” Hanging my head, I murmur, “All of them called back earlier. They were concerned, even the kid that I’d gotten hurt.”I look the Soul Temperer in the eyes as I get to the crux of the issue, even though my shame makes me want to turn away. “I had –doubts- in other people,” I explain, spitting out the words as though they were poison. “I –doubted- people I should have trusted. I thought they had –abandoned- me here.” Letting out a sigh, I murmur, “and I’m angry at –myself- for not trusting them, not thinking better of them.”The Soul Temperer drinks this in with an impassive look on her face the entire time. I thought she wanted me to keep talking, but she spoke up first. “I see,” she says, leaning forward and resting her arms on the table. “Was this perhaps related to you banging on the gates last night?”Nod.“My apologies, Truth-Seeker,” the Soul Temperer apologizes with a bitter smile. “I had believed it was necessary at the time, but perhaps that was just the Black Templar in me talking, though.“-You- were a Black Templar?!” I shout in genuine surprise. She really didn’t seem the type. They were so… uptight.“It is not something I think back on fondly, nor do I enjoy talking about it,” she admitted, staring ahead at the empty space behind me. “I have remade myself since then as penance, though even that may not be enough for what I’ve done. The point is, we have all made mistakes.”[7/10]
>>37618252We handed over our Soul Gem, got no information for it, and now we have a look guaranteed to cause Pinky to go into a homicidal temper tantrum, so we have to be even more careful than ever to avoid her.We got nothing good out of this, and just a whole crate of fail.
I shake my head. “I know that.” I tell her. “And yet,” I sigh again, bringing up my knees and hugging them. “Sometimes I wonder if that voice has a point. If I’m not only less great than I like to think I am, but also that I am actually an outright horrible, selfish person. That all the insults flung at me are true. That I’m wrong –all the time-.” Burying my face in my knees, my voice sounds muffled because I almost don’t want her to hear me when I say, “and that worries me.”The Soul Temperer pauses for some time. And then…“Once upon a time,” she began, “all the animals were called to a banquet.”I lift my head up to ask her what she’s doing, but she continues before I have the chance. “Each animal group had to bring something to eat that could be shared with the others. The agile monkeys had picked bananas. The cunning wolves had harvested potatoes. And the proud lions were to bring grapes. However, the lions were very territorial, and could not tolerate the presence of other animals in their land. So when the laughing hyenas passed through, the lions chased them for days and days until they were gone. And in the process, the lions had let their grapes rot, and then trampled them underfoot. Too proud to arrive with nothing to show, the lions had to make do with the rotten fruit. So they gathered it in bowls of stone and presented it at the banquet.”I raise an eyebrow at her. Why would the wolves have potatoes? And why do the lions have grapes? This story makes no sense! But before I can voice this, the Soul Temperer continues, “the other animals laughed at the lions, especially the hyenas, whose mocking laughter rose above the others. And yet, when the animals tasted what the lions had brought, they discovered something miraculous: the rotten grapes had turned to delicious wine.” The Soul Temperer stop speaking and looks at me expectantly.[8/10]
>mfw today's thread
…I was about to point out the inconsistencies, but she seems to be waiting for me to provide the moral of that fable. Hmm… “You can mess up,” I venture, “but… it can still turn out okay?”She nods once. “Even the greatest of kings were fallible,” the Soul Temperer explains, “and yet they are still remembered as the greatest of kings. Why do you suppose that is?”Another question? “Because of the fact,” I start slowly, trying to put the answer in my head into words, “that they were still great?”She nods again. “And so, what does that say about you?” she asks me.Taking a little bit of time to piece everything together in my head, I speak with a bit more confidence this time. “Just because I have made mistakes, doesn’t mean I’m not great, right?” I questioned.The Soul Temperer smiles warmly and places her hands on my shoulders.“If that voice says things that make you think less of yourself,” she orders, “you tell it to be silent. Because you –are- great, Seeker of Enlightenment.” The Soul Temperer squeezes my shoulders slightly and says, “you are every bit as great as you say you are. And you should never, ever let anyone convince you otherwise. Not even yourself.”…That is the nicest thing anybody has ever said to me.The Soul Temperer draws back and stands up, motioning for me to do the same. “Now,” she asks, “what does the caterpillar want to become when she emerges from her cocoon?”It takes me some time to get my voice back. Long enough to process what she said and understand it fully. “I… I WANT TO BECOME A BETTER PERSON!” I speak with conviction, standing tall again. “And I’ve come to realize I can’t accomplish that entirely on my own.” Curling my fingers into fists, I beseech her, “Can you help me, Soul Temperer?”[9/10]
>>37618405Sure, but as far as a 'with my last death, fuck you' goes it feels a bit weak.
>>37618405Well, at least we all know that either we are The Trascendent One or the clara doll Ai. Or maybe Ahriman is fucking with us?
>>37618440“It would be my pleasure,” the Soul Temperer responds. “As a duckling stays close to its mother, so too must you follow behind me, Truth-Seeker.” With that rather odd comparison, she heads out, beckoning me to follow after her.I gladly oblige, feeling pumped up. “LET’S GET TO IT, THEN!” I shout, urging her to move FASTER! “ONWARD TO -GLORY-, SOUL TEMPERER!”[10/10]
>>37618405We got baller-ass skeleton wings, those are pretty good.

And that's it for now! We're sticking with Heather and Tenko again next time!Thanks to Deculture for letting me writeThanks to Wendy for a few ideas and letting me use Tenko but I'm rather proud that the fast food comparison was my idea~Thanks to Minty for proofreading and feedbackThanks to TwiceBorn for proofreading and suggestionsThanks to Malal for feedbackHeather bullying to resume next time.
>>37618451>at least we all know that either we are The Trascendent One or the clara doll Ai.No we don't? I mean, are you really this stupid, or are you just playing at being a retard?The Transcendent One is still a separate entity working outside of us, and we already knew we were related to her, so looking like the TTO doesn't mean jack shit.And where the fuck does the idea that we'rea Clara Doll come from?
>>37618405We got wings. We can take Wendy for a magic carpet ride while singing "I can show you the world".
>>37618563Above there was someone who posted this theory. And eithr way, how do you explain our new look?
>>37618563>And where the fuck does the idea that we'rea Clara Doll come from?Homudevil told us that the dolls found Ai, the last one. They've also found us.Homudevil-flavor homu doesn't come with time stop, she wished for something else. This is something you can see in the show and something she confirmed.Clara dolls have powers that homu didn't have- there's even one that explicitly has her time-reversal abilityThe last doll, Ai, literally looks like homuOf course this latest revelation throws thing into a mess, but it wasn't out of our asses
>>37618607They're cosplay wings. We can't fly. They're just there to make us look like an awkward otaku.
>>37618607Then we get gunned down and it turns into a blood bath.Truly a perfect date.
>Don't do it you stupid fucks.>DON'T DO IT YOU STUPID FUCKS>DECU'S GIVING YOU A CHANCE TO CHANGE YOUR MIND, TAKE IT YOU STUPID FUCKS>THAT ONE GUY HAS THE RIGHT IDEA, AHRIMAN IS A GOLDEN WEAPON SPIRIT, WHY WOULD YOU LISTEN TO HER TELLING YOU NOT TO LISTEN TO GOLDEN WEAPON SPIRITS>LISTEN TO THAT GUY>NO>NO>YOU STUPID>STUPID>FUCKS>THIS COULD ALL HAVE BEEN AVOIDED IF WE JUST TRADED THE FUCKING STAFF FOR THE KATANA, EVERYONE WOULD HAVE BEEN HAPPYRough timeline of my reaction to the direction this thread went, reading it hours too late to do anything about it.Granted, I'm nowhere near as mad about this as I was about Yuma doing everything wrong.
Bet only Chiaki and Ahriman can see it.
>>37618405Eh, we'll just chop 'em off.
>>37618642Just do an alteration to the costume and attach a light fabric to the frame.
>>37618631Our new look is because we are connected with TTO, it doesn't tell us anything we didn't already know.So we got our body changed through Ahriman's magic for no gain, and nothing but a whole list of negatives.>>37618633Its based on trying to fit together patterns of information, and is nothing but a pile of bullshit.
>>37618656At this fucking point i dont even fucking care anymore. I kinda just fucking want this end.
>>37618656But Anon, Yuma did nothing wrong.
>>37618738>I kinda just fucking want this endYou can always stop reading.
>>37618738So, you want to get off Decu's wild ride?
>>37618733>So we got our body changed through Ahriman's magic for no gainIt's still a little early to say there was NO gain, but unless we can go back and forth between goddess form and human form on our own then the negatives certainly outweigh the positives.
>>37618761Been following for too long to just drop it now. >>37618781>Getting off the ride.>Ever.
>>37618693Hi TwiceBornYou ready to be lewded?
>>37618733How do you know it is Ahriman magic? It could be something else entirely. For example, a crazy theory: we are the TTO but lose our memory, and the TTO that we are seeing is a hallucination of ourselves triying to make us regain our memories. But yes, I admit that it is likely Ahriman butt-fucking us
>>37618782>Pinky forces us into time stop>Gnaws the wings off of us>Slaps us and kicks us back into realtime
>>37618807There's the fact that Ahriman was straight up saying it was her doing something to us, that we could see her doing something to our Soul Gem she was holding, that our Soul Gem was fucking giving off sparks as she held it.
>>37618807>For example, a crazy theory: we are the TTO but lose our memory, and the TTO that we are seeing is a hallucination of ourselves triying to make us regain our memories.The problem with bullshit like this is that there are idiots who will actually believe this.
>>37618807I was thinking something more along the lines of, we are TTO's body but not personality, and TTO we have seen and interacted with (as well as the one that used to haunt Malal) is TTO's personality.For quite some time now, I've assumed we were the original Homura and not this timeline's Homura, and I feel like this would support that.
>>37618884Heres an actually interesting question, where IS this timelines Homu?
>>37618884Or perhaps when Homu ascended into godhood, she left behind an empty mortal shell that eventually gained awareness.
>>37618884Our change doesn't tell us anything we didn't already know.Ahriman lied to us about what we would get out of this, and people still think that we got something when it's nothing.
>>37618975My money's still on Vintage
>>37618989Did we ever work out why Chiaki randomly appeared inside Charlotte's barrier? Your theory could be why we remember exactly nothing at all.
>>37618975>>37619013That Horus chick feels suspicious......
>>37618975For about one thread I was thinking maybe it's Vintage, and I still think that's a remote possibility, but I think the most likely answer is just that we haven't met her. I seem to recall there being one other sister of theirs we haven't met, maybe it's her?>>37618989I doubt it; it we were the mortal shell then how did we just get the goddess' wings?>>37619011It didn't give us much if any INFORMATION, but who knows, maybe we can use bullshit goddess powers now.>>37619037I thought Girl A actually remembered shit, but we had at least one, if not two, amnesia episodes between then and the start of the quest, as well as that other one in Siberia.
>>37619058Agreed. Remember the mirror with Haruka? There are people who says it is Nahona, but it could be Horus
>>37619037Could be madokami meddling
>>37619090I thought the sister we didn't meet was TTO.>>37619058Man, who ISN'T suspicious, in this?
>>37619090>I doubt it; it we were the mortal shell then how did we just get the goddess' wings?something something magic love ai yo?
>>37619126>Man, who ISN'T suspicious, in this?The Imoutos?
>>37619126>Man, who ISN'T suspicious, in this?Kyouko?
>>37619090I'm pretty sure the only thing Girl A remembered was remove incubator remove incubator
>>37619154Yuu is at least a tiny bit suspicious on account of being a Golden Weapon spirit.
>>37619133Noriko is spymaster.
>>37619133Is there like, a handy character summary thing available? Because there are so many characters in this, I can't keep track of all of them. For example, who is Noriko...
>>37619216>Noriko is Spymaster is this timeline's HomuraIt almost makes TOO MUCH sense.
>>37619221Oh wait nevermind, Noriko is the M-idol.
>>37619221Tomoko facecatch.She was Ruri's assistant, the M-idol, and Neco's Filthy Assistant.
>>37619221the wiki.Seriously, a lot of work went into that. Show it some damned love you faeces flogging gonad gargling cuntnado.>not just the new guy gets shit.
>>37619244Well she -was- really good at sneaking up on people.
>>37619296The wiki still needs a LOT of work put into it.
>>37619296It's not too helpful in this case though, it needs a bit more work.http://wiki.magicalgirlnoir.com/index.php/Category:Characters
>>37619296There's a wiki? How did I not know this?
>>37618975I thought she was just a normal girl in this world. Malal had an eye on her, but she wasn't being looked at for contracting.I could be misremembering
>>37619132>>37619090>wingsFor a more serious answer, there may still be the potential left in the shell to ascend. Either that or Ahriman is just using weird magic shit to transform us and lord over us.
>>37619299And she´s so "pitiful" no one would suspect her...
>>37619058Who was Horus again?
>>37619342Maybe not the spymaster, but I wouldn't put being a spy past her. Maybe she's a callidus.
>>37619296Ahhh, I see. So not only I, but everyone gets shit, huh? This looks like a great place
So if we're Homucifer who were we talking to? Ourselves? Who is Chiaki Matsuda then?
>>37619387Keep in mind her big sister Enishi is the best Callidus in our Officio, and I'm fairly sure she believe Noriko is a normal, uncontracted girl. She'd have to be REALLY, INSANELY FUCKING GOOD to pull the wool over her big sister's eyes.
>>37619402Think of it as equality.>You know you belong when you get shit for being, vs being new.
>>37619362In Warhammer 40000 universe, the Primarch who originated the Heresy. Lokk at the First hand. See that big claw? That is the Talon of Horus, Horus weapon
>>37619411I think it's just Ahriman using magic and knowledge of our link with the TTO to make us appear as her. She seems the type to use theatrics and stuff to feel superior to opponents before attacking.
>>37619411>Who is Chiaki Matsuda then?That's easy, it's a personality we've been slowly constructing since the start of the quest, ever since our latest amnesia incident and the loss of the "Murderface" personality, not to be confused with the armored Murderface personality in our DEagle.
>>37619435BUT WHAT IF SHE WASWHAT IF SHE ACTUALLY WAS THAT GOODIT EXPLAINS THE CARDIT EXPLAINS EVERYTHING
>>37619488WE are Chiaki.
>>37619494That's what I was getting at.If she's THAT GOOD, she can't be "just a Callidus." If she's THAT GOOD, she's one of, if not THE, very best Callidus in the world. Of which the Spymaster is one of.
>>37619411The Transcendent One exists outside of Chiaki Matsuda even as Chiaki is a member of the masses of Homura's that existed.This told us nothing new, confirmed nothing that wasnt already confirmed, and as far as we've seen, hasn't given us the revelation that's supposed to blast through the lies of the Golden Weapons.In short, anons believed Ahriman's lies.
>>37619517But I'm not a cute, scar covered girl with a big ass.
>>37619494Things that claim to explain everything explain nothing.I'm not even going to bother speculating. This is all mad if not unexpected shit.
>>37619561You keep saying that, anon, and I keep reminding you that just because she didn't tell us anything that we didn't already know doesn't mean that her fucking with our Soul Gem and our body like that isn't going to turn out to be a good thing, or at least a double-edged sword for us.
>>37619561Never saw it like that. Lies... it can be, yeah. Either way, It is going to be a pain in the ass explaining to Wendy and Mami our new look
>>37619561It also seems that Ahriman is the type to fall for her own bullshit. Being trapped in a golden staff with nobody else to talk to probably didn't help her in that manner either.
>>37619581Sadly Neither Am I, not enough scars and ass.>>37619534Literally.
>>37619628What the fuck are we gonna tell Midori?If she survived our apparent transformation.
>>37619561Well hold on, while there's plenty indication it was just a 'fuck you', we've hardly had the time to figure out if there are more differences than just our new looks.
>>37619663Same thing we're going to end up having to tell Sayaka, Kyouko, Mami, Wendy, and probably QB, Rea, and Enishi. We're the Blessed Lady's evil(?) opposite in human form, and we're not particularly thrilled about it.
>>37619663>apparent transformation>If she survivedOH, SHIT. NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT THAT!!
>>37619663>"So, uh...you a wings kinda gal?"
>>37619663She didn't feel any pain when Chiaki was undergoing the extremely painful procedure in Siberia, nor when she was pulled apart in the barrier that Dickbutt created with the Soulgem bomb. Though she was aware of Chiaki being in incredible pain when the barrier was being created.
>>37619663>>If she survived our apparent transformation.Our link with Midori doesn't work like that. We can pinpoint her location, we can take over her body and we can terminate her Soul Gem. That's it.There's no damage transfer over the link so she isn't in any danger.
>>37619725True. Good memory you have there, anon
>>37619663"Welcome to the High Mile Club"
>>37619613Come on. Just think about it.How did NECO get in? How did the card get in? Why is Noriko NECO's assistant? How did she get those profiles of all those idols? Why is she an idol and a magical girl? How does she keep sneaking up on us?Embrace the shadowruns.
>>37619663"Do you want the wings out during?"
>>37619663Ever fucked with the devil under the pale moonlight?
>>37619402Welcome to 4chan - everyone is shat on, all the time, for anything and everything.It's a disgusting pit of despair and debauchery. But it's OUR disgusting pit of despair and debauchery.
>>37619867I've read too many quests with horns and tails and *-ears lately so all I can think about is whether the bases of our new wings are particularly sensitive, if you get my meaning.

>>37620428Wendy is adorable.Probably for the wrong reasons though.
>>37620412So? Who care what happens to her?
>>37620454Oh man, her wiki profile has her listed as "Serial Killer Waifu." I love her so much.
>>37620412Now, anon, just listen to yourself. That's crazy! You're crazy! We might have to send you to the 2020 re-education centre if you don't stop saying crazy things.
>>37620412Who the hell is Lori?
>>37620561The idol of the first threads who was (and tecnically is still) in love with Chiaki
>>37620561Original love interest.>>37620511Chiaki does. Which means that if she contracts, Chiaki failed her and Iori becomes relevant again. As in Iori becomes part of the main plot. Do you want to have an idol as part of the main cast again?
>>37620561I dunno. Does Souji have a lorry around somewhere? He's dull enough to give it a bland nickname like that.
