A couple of lifetimes ago - your life, basically, before your sempai shot her way through your kneecaps and grumbled her way into your heart - you never believed in karma. You never believed that someone's past would come back to haunt them.People - especially Magical Girls - get away with everything. You've seen it happen. You knew those people, worked with them, ate with them, did your best not to attract their attention during meetings. Each and every one of them, eyes glittering and lips sneering with the satisfaction of doing unspeakable things that should have, by rights, seen them either dead or incarcerated. Each one of them confident, even smug, that they were living a life free of the legal, moral and ethical constraints normally imposed upon the living world. Sure, they needed to ascribe to another - their Incubator's - but all that took was obedience, not restraint. Not the way that the rest of the world had to fall in line with. There was the guilt at first, though. Everyone did. They called it 'The Wall'. Guilt from their first kill, their first assignments, resurfacing at the least opportune time. Eversors screaming and crying from their deployments, caked with blood and gore, wailing barely-coherent confessions and apologies to the sky. Callidus breaking down in the middle of their assignments, turning their weapons upon themselves when the deceit became too much to bear, when they got too close to their targets. Vindicares locking themselves in their quarters, withdrawing from everyone, becoming mumbling recluses talking to empty air, clutching their weapons in their hands. Culexus, Vanus, Venenum - no matter what rank, everyone suffered it. Everyone went through it. And everyone - except you - got over it.
>>41238911It wasn't that they were monsters, although you've had the dubious pleasure of knowing a few who deserved such a title. Do anything unspeakable long enough and it loses its edge. You become 'acclimatized', as your Incubator put it. It stops becoming taboo. It becomes as mundane and as tedious as...as paperwork. Read, sign, stamp. Find, murder, dispose. Some girls arrive at the wall and slowly but surely find their way through it. They stop throwing up at the sight of blood. They no longer see corpses as the people they once were but simply useless biological matter that should be disposed of neatly. Ending lives becomes tedium. But they never see the work as something to be proud of, to brag about, to relish in. Some - like yourself - even attempt to bend the rules a bit, to resort to shortcuts, to make the act less...taxing on the conscience as it would usually be. Eversors train themselves to cut quick and cut clean, giving no time for the victim to feel pain. Callidus resort to simply knocking targets unconscious, either by striking pressure points or administering sleep-inducing substances with a brush of a needle. Vindicares go for incapacitating wounds instead of killshots, or use less lethal ammunition. You...well, you tried your best to make your targets feel loved until the end. Made them feel loved, cared for, made them feel like they meant the world to someone. That as imperfect and broken as they were, they still had someone who considered them the most important person in their lives - right until you left them, happy, insensate, feeling no pain whatsoever - to your clients.[1/2]
>>41238927You...well, you tried your best to make your targets feel loved until the end. Made them feel loved, cared for, made them feel like they meant the world to someone. That as imperfect and broken as they were, they still had someone who considered them the most important person in their lives - right until you left them, happy, insensate, feeling no pain whatsoever - to your clients.And then there were the other girls. The other girls who reached the wall, looked at it, and smashed through it with their bare hands. Never feeling the pang of guilt, never getting the nightmares filled with the faces of the freshly murdered. They not only relished the work, but anticipated it. Savored it. Counted every kill, every deception, every target. Taking not only gusto in their work but also a smug kind of pride. You were never one of them. As...as horrible as you thought some of them were, you secretly admired them. You didn't want to be like them, no, but...you've always thought that someone like that, someone who could just fully accept their role sincerely and wholeheartedly - was cool. They frightened you, you'll admit that outright, but...they had that kind of appeal. A dangerous edge to them that demanded caution as much as admiration. Just like your sempai, before you realized how broken she was. How haunted she was.That was the first time that you realized that what went around really came around.The second time - well, it's happening right now, in the worst time it could ever come up.You really, really wish your sempai was here with you right now.[2/3]
>>41238939You clear your throat, wracking your mind for a reply, forcing yourself to come up with something that wasn't quite the truth, and at the same time wasn't quite a lie. You've learned from long ago that those were the most effective kind of falsehood, the ones with a measure of truth in them. They were easier to say, easier to justify, easier to convince with and be convinced of. Even the most bald-faced, shameless liar knew that - that the lie spiced with truth much more easily goes down the throat of the person you were feeding it to."I'm...I'm sorry to hear about what happened to you, but..." You begin, allowing your own real nervousness at the encounter to come through, letting it give you that hesitant stutter that had never failed you ever since you started using it. Giving you the voice of someone who isn't quite sure of what to make of things right now, but is quite eager to help, especially in the face of tears. "...if you're talking about Matsuda-san's mission back then, when she saved a client from a, a gang of creeps--" You pause here to give her a smile. One just bordering on the edge of uncertainty, but sincere enough not to look forced. "--then I wouldn't really know anything about what really happened to the girl you're talking about. I was employed here a week or so after it. I'm sorry."Iori's face falls. "B-but--"You hold up a hand, still keeping the smile firmly fixed on your face. "But that's...well, that's the official response we're all supposed to give non-employees, Minase-san. We're not supposed to discuss mission details with outsiders, even if they were past clientele. But since you came all the way here to warn Matsuda-san about that Magical Girl, I...well..." You make a show of looking around furtively, before nodding at her. "I know for a fact that Matsuda-san wouldn't have allowed a loose thread like that hanging around. Not her."The idol's pink eyes go wide at this. "Really...? Are you sure?"[3/4]
>>41238954You nod, firmly. "Matsuda-san may have a rough personality, and she's not the sort to bother herself with pleasantries very much, but she's nothing if not thorough. She doesn't leave anything to chance." It's here, then, that you allow yourself to be bold and take Iori's hands with your own - the idol making a noise of surprised hesitation the moment your skin touched hers. "I...Minase-san, I won't pretend I know what you've been through, and I know we've only just met, but I want you to know that you don't have to worry about that Magical Girl hurting anyone anymore. Not you, nor Matsuda-san, nor anyone else. Please believe me when I say that.""I..." To say that your heartfelt plea had taken the idol by surprise was an understatement. But she didn't recoil, that was important. Nor did she sputter in petulant rage about how you seemed to talk like you knew her. It meant, as you realize now with a sick, heavy feeling in your heart, that this was a meeting that was a long time coming. That it was only now that Iori had worked up the courage to actually come HERE and try to talk to your sempai. That she'd held out as long as she could, allowing those dreams to fester in her mind, until they became too painful to ignore, to deny. She wanted them lanced, and the only way to do so was to warn Chiaki of her fate, or at least make sure that her assailant - you - were in no shape to carry out that dark deed.And of course you're not. You'd never hurt your sempai. You'd never hurt Chiaki.You'd kill yourself first before you could even think of such a thing.[4/5]
>>41238970"...I believe you." Iori finally says, and amazingly, she gives your hands a careful, hesitating squeeze. "T-thank you. I'm..." She shakes her head, giggling in relieved embarrassment. "I'm sorry if that suddenly came out of nowhere. It's...I've been trying to convince myself that something like that can't happen. That Chiaki-san certainly won't let someone like that...that girl live with what she did. Or how she'd let anyone hurt her - not with her absolutely destroying them first."You ignore that stab of guilt and nod, smiling, returning her squeeze before gently letting go. "It just doesn't make sense, right?" Iori continues. "Matsuda-san can be a bit boorish and abrasive, but she doesn't do things halfway. Like you said, she wouldn't have let a loose thread hang like that. She'd have dealt with it the quickest and cleanest way." You see the light return to Iori's eyes at the same time that she smiles again. "Thank you. I suppose I just needed to hear it from someone else other than myself." Her cheeks redden slightly as she giggles again.You shake your head. It's nothing, you tell her. You know exactly how she feels, at least with that. Sometimes, you need to hear it from someone else's mouth to truly believe something, even if you yourself know that it's silly not to believe it. "I just...well, Chiaki-san and I didn't exactly part in good terms the last time we met, but..." Iori's cheeks redden again. "...I...she's important to me. I don't want anything to happen to her."You force down another pang of emotion here. Not pity, not guilt, certainly not fear...But something that makes you feel a hell of a lot worse.It's fine, you tell yourself. It's normal. Just...make her feel better. It's the least you can do, after all. Especially after all you did.[5/6]
>>41238989"Ah!" Iori suddenly exclaims, nearly making you jump in surprise. "I just remembered, I introduced myself but didn't ask your name in return!" The idol shakes her head in self-admonishment, before bowing demurely in front of you. "I usually don't forget, this is so embarrassing...!"A-ah. No, that's fine, really, you reassure her. Besides, things did get a bit emotional there for a moment..."I...I suppose so, but that's no excuse." The idol straightens up, something like a dignified determination shining in her eyes. "Please tell me your name, so I can at least thank you properly."Right. You were....you weren't exactly looking forward to this, but it had to happen eventually.What do you do?Give your real name.Give a fake name.
>>41239005>[X]Give your real name.The moment she talks to anyone else she's probably going to know the truth
>>41239005>[X]Give your real name.
>>41239005>Give your real name.No point in adding any more lies to the pile.
>>41239005>[X]Give your real name.it has it's risks but it will save us some trouble if she look for Midori later
>>41239005>[x]Give a fake first name.>[x]Give your real family name.we will only talk to kyoko and sayaka. they should be smart enough to not let midoris first name slip.even if we were to talk to anyone else, they would just call us hanegawa-san.
I'd like to draw attention to a question posted on Decu's askQ:How is possible that Iori has entered so deep in the Offico, to the point of being near the Callidus training room? Why no one is scorting her? Why a civilian is left alone? Why she walks alone in the building, with the possibility to access restricted areas? What is security doing, taking a nap?A:Hahaha!
>>41239005>Give your real name.Better not risk the possibility that later someone call us by our name
>>41239005[X]Give your real name.There's too high a risk of something going wrong if she talks with someone else and gets a different name from them.
>>41239141Welcome to Decu's wild ride! It never ends, and once you are in, you will never left! Take all your paranoia with you and enjoy as much as you can!
>>41239005>Give your real name.We told Chiaki our fake name during the Iorio affair, so we shouldn't lie now...
>>41239141It's quite possible that Iori has contracted, or has some sort of outside help that has gotten her inside without a hitch. Either way, Midori just needs to roll with the punches.
>>41239005>[x]Give your real name.
Does Iori even know our real name? I mean, she can easily find out later, but at the moment all we need to do is not break down crying/screaming make sure Ms Lorry doesn't over there either.
>>41239212And why that is important? If she doesn't knows, that ok. And if she remembered it from the nearly-rape night, she should be screaming by now
>>41239005>[X]Give real name
>>41239234She might have asked about who the enemy MG was during the mission, maybe. It's unlikely she'd recognise it off the bat, but hey, she might have looked into it.But yeah just tell the truth. If she starts screaming it's not going to do much in the long run, other than make things just more awkward.
Thread 275: >She looks back at you, wringing her dainty porcelain fingers. "If...if knowing someone who can make a direct appeal to the Blessed Lady, a priestess or seer, then maybe...maybe she can intervene on Good for Nothing's behalf...">What? The Blessed Lady? And a seer...?>Manuke nods furiously. "Someone who can scry into the Akashic Realm, or walk in its tides without fear of corruption." She turns towards Wendy, and somehow you sense a brief, unspoken moment of understanding pass between the both of them. "The Blessed Lady is really angry with our Good For Nothing, but if priestess can plead and bargain with her, she can save our Good For Nothing..."Ok, so far, we only knows two seers: Haruka and a theorically contracted Oriko. And both of them hate Chiaki, so we are pretty much fucked in that regard.But what if we enf up in a situation were we don't have other choice than use a seer to help Chiaki? In that case, who do we ask for help and how?I am asking this in case we face this situation in the future, and honestly, I want to read anons opinions in the matter
>>41239141>Hahaha!Ahem. Just a reminder.
>>41239141The 2020 studios or whatever is the 20th officio.
>>41239354Writing on mobile phone makes my grammar an abomination to the eyes
>>41239212iori should know that the meguca that helped the otakus is called midori.
>>41239409It's true that one of the rapist called Midori by her name, but I doubt that Iori was paying attention, considering she had a rapist on top of her
>>41239005I realise this is past the voting time, but a hilarious way out of this one would be to introduce yourself truthfully as Midori "GreenGreen" Hanegawa.
>>41239486Maybe that's part of our real name?
>>41239497That's not what thew winning vote means and you know it. But it would throw her off the track for sure..."You? You... draw... that stuff?""Yes. And if I remember correctly, you're one of the voices in the anime adaptation." "...""...""Will you sign this for me, please?"
>>41239549Porn helps you make friends
>>41239602Midori's fat sacks of extraneous flesh
>>41239455It's not exactly impossible for there to be two people named Midori in the world. If she catches on, this should be our excuse.
>>41239602For some reason, I feel myself misteriously inclined to cheer for Chiaki, but don´t know the reason. Also, another strange thing here is that my neck is going up and down all the time, and it´s starting to hurt. I don´t know the reason either
>>41239689Good idea, anon!
>>41239602Unf, dat Chiaki.
>>41239602The cutest.I want Midori playing Callidus Tennis with Chiaki as her cheerleader.
>>41239750>>41239442Stop avatarfagging ください
>>41239602Why has Chiaki but not Kyouko have scars?
>>41239781Because Kyoko is calculating and careful.
>>41239797WhatAre you retarded
>>41239781Kyouko just regenerated a fresh body, remember? Wonder if that means she's got both eyes back, too.
>>41239781I'm just a regular reader of these threads, but I assume this has something to do with FUCKING EVERSORS. Chiaki is a Vindicare, but half the time she fights like an Eversor.
>>41239781Because Kyouko is an Eversor and has better regen
>>41239781Chiaki is scarred from cutting herself on her edge.
>>41239818That and having a girlfriend capable of more batshit regen powers
>>41239811>>41239781That is, Eversors' magic greatly aids regeneration. Sayaka's in particular is quite strong.
>>41239005Well, it's come to this, then.You take in a breath, let it out, and then speak your own name - your real name - out loud. Clearly and crisply, loud enough for the idol in front of you to hear."Midori," You tell her. "Hanegawa Midori. It's a pleasure to meet you, Minase-san."For a moment, a cold feeling of dread overtakes you - of Iori suddenly shrieking about how you've finally revealed yourself to be her assailant, to be the true culprit of the crime that nearly ruined her life. You half-expect, in that terrible sickening second, that she'd laugh at how you fell for her ruse, hook line and sinker, incriminating yourself and justifying her revenge in the process. And then she'd thrust a hand into her bag, pulling out a pistol and then shooting you before you can react...It doesn't happen, of course. Instead, the idol simply smiles at you. "Hanegawa...Midori-san? That's, well, that's a very apt name, if you don't mind me saying so--"You shake off the remnants of that paranoid vision to return her smile, albeit wryly. "Yes, yes, I know. It's the hair. My parents weren't very creative." A moment, and you feel your cheeks heat up at the stare. "A-and it's natural! Honest! It's naturally green!""O-of course, I wasn't implying otherwise," Iori reassures you. "It's just that, well, another person I'm working with also has green hair, but I've always suspected that she dyes it, even though I've never seen her in a salon. I've always wanted a point of comparison, even if yours is a slightly darker shade." She giggles again. "Just to see if she's actually dyeing her hair or not."Oh? You blink here, before nodding. That makes sense, you suppose. What's her verdict, then?[1/2]
>>41239781Because Hat likes drawing scarred Chiaki
>>41239894Iori stares a few moments more, her smile turning into a pensive frown, before she shakes her head. "I...I honestly can't tell, Midori-san. Without her here for a side-by-side, I can only go by memory, but..." She shakes her head. "Yours look very similar to hers, at least from where I'm standing." She reaches out to gently brush her fingertips through a lock of your hair. "...Consistency's more or less the same, although I do have to point out that you're not taking care of yours as well as you should be, Midori-san."...Urgh. Y-yeah, you didn't really get much of a chance to wash it thoroughly this morning. You bear the admonishment easily enough, however, and make a mental note to take a proper shower before meeting up with Wendy again."...That settles it, then. She isn't really dyeing her hair, that harridan. How does she do it...?" Iori grumbles, before looking back up at you. "Thank you for indulging me, Midori-san. For the second time today."It's fine, you reassure her. You're, uh, guessing that she isn't getting along with that coworker?"We get along well enough, but..." Iori begins, now looking around as well. "...It's...well, it's immature of me to say so, but have you ever had the kind of coworker who's perfect in every way and knows it? And they don't waste any time in letting you know?"...Yeah. Yeah, you're familiar with the type."And how you're just fed up with how they are that you're looking her all over for faults? Faults that prove they're still human, that they have their own share of imperfections?"You nod furiously. You SO do. Definitely."That's what my coworker's like." Iori gives a small shudder. "And I've yet to find anything wrong with her. Not a single blemish. Not even a pimple."That's...wow.[2/3]
>>41239915Ruri paranoia is baaaaaaaaaaackk!!
>>41239915"Exactly! And the worst thing is, she knows it!" The idol lets out a groan, before shaking her head. "Ugh. Let's...let's not let me ramble on about work, Midori-san. Not right now, at least." She offers you an apologetic grin. "You were taking me to meet someone, right? Before your direct superior comes and takes me to Chiaki?"You nod. That was what you were doing."Then lead the way, we can talk while we're walking." Iori smiles, and you gladly do so, heaving a sigh of relief as you lead the idol to sick bay, where Kyoko should be holed up. The first few corridors you tackle in comfortable, if slightly awkward silence, with that uneasy bond between strangers that had been forced through the entire spectrum of emotions through happenstance.It's at the third corridor that you remember something. Just...how did Iori get here in the first place? So near the Callidus training floor, even?You ask this before you can stop yourself, and Iori blushes again. "I...well, a receptionist was going to lead me to a waiting room, but I snuck off the moment her back was turned." The idol giggles here again, this time sounding rather...forced. "...I just wanted to try and find Chiaki-san on my own, but I got lost soon after. I was wandering around for twenty minutes before I bumped into you."...Aaaand now you feel that she isn't being honest with you.Strange. She doesn't...well, when you touched her hands, you were trying to see if she was contracted, but you didn't feel the tell-tale tingling that all Magical Girls would exude upon the first few moments of physical contact. But why is she lying now?How do you react?Call her out on it.Let it slide. Just make sure to tell someone about it later. Continue leading her to Kyoko's recovery room.Try to get into her good side. How is the idol business going?
>>41239940>Try to get into her good side. How is the idol business going?
>>41239940>[X]Call her out on it.But try not to make her feel bad.

>>41239940>[X]Call her out on it.
>>41240004That's not our place to decide.
>>41239940>Try to get into her good side. How is the idol business going?[X] Text building security, ask if there's been any blips on the perimeter.

>>41239940>Call her out on it."Listen, I know you're here for some pretty personal reasons, but you don't have to lie to me about anything. I'd like to be your friend, after all."

>>41240138Midori a useless sack of fat and she needs to be reminded of it by being used as a pillow.
>>41240247idk, a lewd in the bush certainly seems more effective in this case.

There's a few scenarios here.>this is Iori and security are fine just monitoring her>this is Iori but she has had magical assistance to infiltrate the Officio headquarters, or someone else is infiltrating and shut down security. Security and overwatch are either unable to see us or dead and dying in the security office >this isn't IoriCalling her out, which do you think is happening?
>>41241151It could be possible that Iori isn't an MG, but that ring she's fidgeting with might be enchanted or something. It's possible that it could be carrying some sorta magical payload.
>>41241196>this is Iori but she has had magical assistance to infiltrate the Officio headquarters, or someone else is infiltrating and shut down security. Security and overwatch are either unable to see us or dead and dying in the security office>>41239387
Aaaaaand... Of course the quest ends up happening when I'm stuck at work. FML...Missed two votes already.
>>41241151>>41241034>>41240855>>41240842>Forgetting the first rule of MGNQWelcome to MGNQ, enjoy your stay,
Alternately Wendy is taking alternative steps about matters.
>>41239952 >>41239976 >>41240002 >>41240013You decide not to bring it up right now. Not when things are going so smoothly. You'll just tell someone who can do something about it - most likely Sayaka herself, whenever she finally decides to come down and rescue you.It's here, as you continue leading her through the Officio's winding walls to where Sakura Kyoko is recovering from her injuries, that you also decide to strike up conversation once more. Asking her about how it is being a popular idol.Iori stares at you in blank surprise for a moment, before breaking out into a surprised smile. "Ah...! So you did recognize me after all, Midori-san. And here I was lamenting the fact that I'd fallen off the charts for so long that people can't recognize me anymore!" She giggles, a sublime sound borne of someone who sings for a living.You shake your head, a similar smile curling your lips despite yourself. No, of course not, you did recognize her! You just wanted to make sure, after all. You didn't want to mistake her for a lookalike, and vice-versa!"If you say so, Midori-san." Iori giggles into the back of her hand. "Well, to answer your question, it's...always been surreal, to a point? But you get used to the fame easily enough. After the honeymoon phase, it's all about getting ferried to one place and then another to do all these recordings, appearances, handshake events...and making sure you always, ALWAYS look like the package you're advertising." She smooths down her dress in seeming emphasis of this. "No matter if you're sick, or sleep-deprived, or mentally preoccupied by something else, you have to look the part."Nothing you haven't heard of before, of course. You've watched enough documentaries about Japan's fascination with idols to know how they're really like. Still, there's something to be said about hearing it in person, delivered by an actual idol without a camera in sight. [1/2]
>>41241370You offer your commiserations, and she nods at you. "It can be rough sometimes, yes, but I think any work, even if you're passionate about it, can be a bit tough to keep up with." The brown-haired idol grins. "Although, I suppose I can't really talk, as I'm sure even my worst day can't compare to a Magical Girl's."You find yourself smiling again, and leave it at that. This is...alright. It's not ideal, but things have not yet gone absolutely to hell yet. You may even get through today with your sanity intact.After a few minutes' more of walking - and more small talk about her current projects as a Magical Girl - you finally arrive in sick bay, specifically right in front of Kyoko's recovery room. You excuse yourself briefly to gently and quietly knock on the door - and sure enough, the red-haired Eversor's voice comes through loud and clear. As if she'd never been so grievously injured that she needed an entirely new body."Door's open! Come on in!""Is that...?" Iori blinks at the voice, before breaking out into another smile. "That's Kyoko-san! It's been a while since we last talked...!" Her smile falls soon after, however. "Wait, if Kyoko-san's here, then that means something happened to her...?"You shake your head wordlessly and usher the idol inside as soon as you get the door open. You step in a moment later, and see the Eversor in her hospital gown, sitting cross-legged upon her bed, a portable gaming system in her hands and empty boxes of snacks around her. She looks up the moment you close the door behind you, her face lighting up like it's Christmas morning. The one unpatched eye glowing with clear, obvious joy at the prospect of company."Oh, wow, it's you guys!" She greets the both of you, thumb jabbing down on the device's pause button. It looks like she's been playing something with...squids? Something like that, anyway. "Hah, when Sayaka-chan told me I was gonna get visitors, I wasn't expecting Midorin and Iori-chan!"[2/3]
>>41241390>It looks like she's been playing something with...squids?You gotta be squidding me
>>41241390Y-yeah, well, you're here, you tell her as you smile awkwardly. You've always liked the Eversor, nearly as much as your sempai liked her, but her energy and warmth was often a bit too much to handle. Still, it wasn't as if she was trying to make you uncomfortable or anything - it was almost always the opposite, and you can't help but find charm in that. "Kyoko-san, it's been an awfully long time!" Iori exclaims as she steps forward. "I'm happy to see you, but what happened? Why are you in here? Did you get into an accident, or...?"The Eversor glances at you, before chuckling as she turns back to the idol. "Ahaha..! Well, not exactly an accident, if you get what I'm sayin'! But I'm fine now, really! Doctor's just keepin' me for a few days for physical therapy an' rehab, make sure I got everything back into working order, that kinda thing!""O-oh. I see." Iori seems to believe this easily enough, her smile coming back on. "Well, you do seem to be in high spirits, for someone stuck inside a hospital room. And eating unhealthily again, I see!" She picks up an empty box. "These snacks are all going to go straight to your thighs, Kyoko-san!""I-I'll just work it all off during training!" Kyoko protests. "'Sides, those are all just snacks, anyhow! I eat all the rabbit food the doc forces me to choke down, that should make up for it!""...It doesn't really work that way, Kyoko-san." Iori shakes her head mournfully, albeit with a playful grin this time. "But as I won't pretend to know how Magical Girls' metabolisms work. I'll just let you off with a warning then." A moment. "I will , however, have to tell Sayaka-san about this.""What? Aw, man, that's cruel, Iori-chan!" The Eversor cries, falling back down onto the bed with a whumpf. "You're gonna get my knees wrecked for sure! Sayaka's gonna drag me to the gym and tell me to squat a metric ton for an hour, just to burn the calories away!"[3/4]
>>41241390>something with squidsYou gotta be squidding me
>>41241414Well. They seem to be getting along, with the complications from earlier glossed over the moment. You let them continue their catching up, with Kyoko regaling Iori of the things your sempai's been up to so far - at least, the stuff she can share. You've long figured out that Kyoko knew what she was doing, and regularly took advantage of the fact that a lot of people underestimated her. She wasn't stupid, she was just simple. Stark difference between each one.It's only after a while that the conversation turns back to you. "Hey, Midorin." Kyoko's voice, bringing you back to the present. "How's the boss doing, anyway? I don't see her around." The boss? Does she mean Kyuubey, or--Oh. Sempai. She's using code words to ask questions about sempai without alerting Iori.Hnh. Sayaka must not have told Kyoko, then. Urgh, she should have at least, but it probably slipped the Acting Warmaster's mind...How do you respond?She's doing fine. (Chiaki's okay.)She's not doing so hot, but she's recuperating. (Chiaki's okay but in a Silent Room.)She's alright, but the Venenum want to keep her under observation for a while. (Chiaki's in a Silent Room and definitely not doing okay.)
>>41241441>[x]She's alright, but the Venenum want to keep her under observation for a while. (Chiaki's in a Silent Room and definitely not doing okay.)
>>41241441[x]She's alright, but the Venenum want to keep her under observation for a while. (Chiaki's in a Silent Room and definitely not doing okay.)
>>41241441>[X]She's alright, but the Venenum want to keep her under observation for a while. (Chiaki's in a Silent Room and definitely not doing okay.)we can trust Kyoko right?
>>41241441She's alright, but the Venenum want to keep her under observation for a while.
>>41241441>She's alright, but the Venenum want to keep her under observation for a while. (Chiaki's in a Silent Room and definitely not doing okay.)

>>41241441>She's alright, but the Venenum want to keep her under observation for a while. (Chiaki's in a Silent Room and definitely not doing okay.
>>41241465If we can't trust a kyoko, then it's time to retire from magical girls.
>>41241465Does the Pope shit in the woods?
>>41241486We can trust Kyouko to do impulsive shit
>>41241441>She's not doing so hot, but she's recuperating. (Chiaki's okay but in a Silent Room.)Sayaka can handle how to break the news to Kyouko.
>>41241524Has she ever done something impulsively?For the most part, the one who does impulsive shit that gets everyone in trouble is whoever is under anons' control.
>>41241441>[X] She's not doing so hot, but she's recuperating.
>>41241390>and more small talk about her current projects as a Magical GirlWait, what?
>>41241592well she does have a history of setting people on fire
>>41241441>[x]She's alright, but the Venenum want to keep her under observation for a while. (Chiaki's in a Silent Room and definitely not doing okay.)Fits the quarantine story and all.
>>41241592She's energetic, but not impulsive. At least in MGNQ so far. During the Kilgore mission she waited until we called for backup, she's waited for orders, and generally kept a cool head on her shoulders outside of combat. We can trust her, yeah, but we might be making her unnecessarily worried
>>41241612Iori is doing voice acting for the Murder Mayumi/Miracle Midori anime, if I recall correctly. That must be what that refers to.
>>41241612She's doing voice work for the MMxMM anime. CALL SECURITY
>>41241612 She's the voice actress for Murder Mayumi? Right?
>>41241655I think Ruri is voicing Mayumi. Iori must be Miracle Midori
Has Midori added Wendy as a character?
>>41241844No, its the opposite. Ruri is Miracle Midori and Iori is Murder Mayumi.
>>41242030>Iori playing Murder MayumiMan, I just can't imagine that.
>>41239362That's not the image I have.
>>41242097Iori is apparently a tsundere.
>>41239936I'm 99.999% sure this is not Iori, but Ruri. Or at least the work of an enemy callidus.
>>41242324So if we slip "Nevermore" Into a conversation...
>>41242375We don't know about "Nevermore".
>>412423751. Midori does not know about that. Only Chiaki and Malal do.2. We are not sure whether Ruri is a magical girl.3. We are not sure whether 2020 studios are the 20th.4. Ruri is not the spymaster.
>>41242375Midori can't, because she doesn't know, and odds are that Iori won't be around when shit hits the fan with Chiaki...Because let's be honest here... the odds of things working out smoothly are zero to nil.
>>41242403>>41242413>>41242419I got it the first time, it was said I jest.Bloody shadowruns everywhere.
>>41242413>2. We are not sure whether Ruri is a magical girl.>3. We are not sure whether 2020 studios are the 20th.>4. Ruri is not the spymaster.But they are!
>>41242413The look on your face when you realise you're wrong. It will be glorious.
>>41242478The look on your face when you realise you're wrong. It will be glorious.Hahaha!
Honestly, I kind of doubt that the 20th would use something as ridiculous as 2020 studios... or at least I'm hoping that Decu has better taste than that....Still, being paranoid about the 20th is kinda pointless. From what I saw of them in the write-ups so far, the Spymaster is so skilled that we might as well ignore her and pretend she's always in the know somehow.
>>41241458 >>41241463 >>41241465 >>41241475You watch Kyoko carefully as you give your reply, readying yourself to do something drastic just in case she takes your coded message in the worst way possible. You are, after all, telling her that her best friend - your sempai - is not doing all that well inside a Silent Room. Anyone would freak out over that, especially someone as...energetic, as emphatic as the red-haired Eversor.The look of abject misery that overwhelms Kyoko's grin when she finally hears the news from you lasts all of a single heartbreaking moment. A moment gone in a blink, replaced with a less eager but just as natural-looking smile, but it was there nonetheless. And it's here that you realize that Kyoko knew, somehow. She knew something was wrong when she didn't wake up with Sayaka beside her today, or with Chiaki visiting her. She'd just been trying to occupy herself, to convince herself that it was just her imagination, and all she needed to do was wait for your sempai to visit her. But instead she got you and Iori, as well as the damning confirmation that her best friend was indeed in trouble.Look at you. Ruining days for everyone like it's no one's business. Maybe if you do enough, you can get a pink Magical Girl costume and pink twintails to go along with it."Your boss? The...the Venenum?" Iori glances between the both of you. "Oh no, do you have other friends who are also recovering? We should pay them a visit as well, then!""Eh?" Kyoko blinks her one good eye here, before hastily shaking her head. "A-ah, no, that ain't neccessary, Iori-chan! She'll be fine, our Venenum - that's what we call the medical staff here - are takin' good care of her. It won't do ta just visit her right out of the blue, there's procedures an' stuff and that takes a while. 'Specially if she's under observation."[1/2]
>>41242413>4. Ruri is not the spymaster.That is exactly what the Spymaster wants you to think.just as planned
>>41242640"Really?" Iori's brow furrows here. "Well, if you're sure...I just thought it'd be nice to visit her, seeing as we're all here and everything...""She'll probably just be annoyed, along with the rest of the Venenum. Take it from me, Iori-chan." Kyoko reaches over and pats her hand, before turning towards you. Something strange and unreadable shining in her crimson eye.And then--+ Midorin? Hey, Midorin, can you hear me? +It's...that's Kyoko. That's Kyoko pulsing to you.You reply to the affirmative, doing your best not to show any outward sign that you're communicating with the one other person in the room through a crude form of telepathy. Telepathy that you're pretty sure would leave you with a migraine later, if the sudden tightening sensation between your eyes is anything to get concerned about. + Awesome. I wasn't sure if this was gonna work again, after what happened back in the op. + Kyoko grins at you, before saying something to Iori that you don't quite hear. + A-anyway, about Murderface...I kinda had a feeling something went wrong, but...+ She shakes her head. + She's gonna be alright, isn't she? Murderface is gonna be okay? +How do you respond?Yes. Sempai's going to be alright. I'm going to do everything I can to help her.I don't know, Kyoko-san. But let's trust sempai. She's not going to go down so easily.Quickly pulse to her everything you know about Chiaki's situation, let her make her own conclusions there.
>>41242659>[X]Quickly pulse to her everything you know about Chiaki's situation, let her make her own conclusions there.Gotta trust the Kyo-bro on this
>>41242659>[X]Quickly pulse to her everything you know about Chiaki's situation, let her make her own conclusions there.
>>41242654The Spymaster herself said that she has no personal identity anymore. She could be anyone.Maybe... this Spymaster has already breached our defenses. See what she has done to our colleagues. And worst of all, she could be any one of us. She could be in this very room. She could be you. She could be me! She could even be Kyuubey!
>>41242659>Yes. Sempai's going to be alright. I'm going to do everything I can to help her.Trying to tell her all in front of Iori, even by telepahty, is calling for disaster
>>41242659>I don't know, Kyoko-san. But let's trust sempai. She's not going to go down so easily.
>>41242628And that is exactly the problem. If she discovers the wings and everything, is game over for us. Althought I admit that the problem here is locating her
>>41242659>[x]Quickly pulse to her everything you know about Chiaki's situation, let her make her own conclusions there.
>>41242659>Quickly pulse to her everything you know about Chiaki's situation, let her make her own conclusions there.
>>41242659>[X]Yes. Sempai's going to be alright. I'm going to do everything I can to help her.
[X] Yes. Sempai's going to be alright. I'm going to do everything I can to help her.Explaining the whole situation right now in front of Iori would be bad, even through telepathy, we'll have to fill her in later.
>>41242659[X]Yes. Sempai's going to be alright. I'm going to do everything I can to help her.I would vote for option 3, but this channel is not encrypted. We're broadcasting. What if QB is right outside the door? What if this really is Ruri of the 20th?
>>41242659>Yes. Sempai's going to be alright. I'm going to do everything I can to help her.Telling her everything will only make her worry more.
>>41242659>[X]Quickly pulse to her everything you know about Chiaki's situation, let her make her own conclusions there.Might as well. Kyouko is as trustworthy as they get.
>>41242659>[x]Yes. Sempai's going to be alright. I'm going to do everything I can to help her.also[x]tell her that something is strange about iori and you are afraid that she can intercept the pulsing.
>>41242659>[X]I don't know, Kyoko-san. But let's trust sempai. She's not going to go down so easily.we don't have time to explain everything with Iori there to notice us looking at noting while on codeclet's just ask her to trust Chiaki and trust us
>>41242659>Tell her that she might be shocked by what she's about to hear and to make sure Iori doesn't notice anything. >Quickly pulse to her everything you know about Chiaki's situation, let her make her own conclusions there.
>>41242628We have seen that the idols are used in the Officios for celebrations and important events. If the 20th is using the idols for infiltration and distraction purposes, then I think is very intelligent
>>41242659>[X]Yes. Sempai's going to be alright. I'm going to do everything I can to help herOur kyobro isn't exactly the best of telepaths, we shouldn't give details that could literally be picked out of the air.
>>41242659>[X]Quickly pulse to her everything you know about Chiaki's situation, let her make her own conclusions there.Kyouko's pretty trustworthy, and let's face it, we can use her help, either to get her to interfere with Sayaka, or with the op itself in some manner.Actually, wouldn't Kyouko be able to get the access card to the GW vault for us from Sayaka, at least in theory, if we can get her on board to help us?
Oh god you guys, if we tell Kyouko everything all at once, she'll get so distracted Iori will catch on.Also yeah, Kyubey is probably watching us specificlly, to make sure we don't go telling everyone it's all going to shit.
>>41242659>Quickly pulse to her everything you know about Chiaki's situation, let her make her own conclusions there.I feel like this is a terrible idea for some reason.But Kyoko.Only way we could get her help is if she knew how dire things are. I just hope she doesn't flip out immediately.
>>41242827In MGNQ, only a Cullexus, and girls that can spec as one, can use telepathy, so unless there's one close enough and skilled enough to listen in, things should be fine.Plus, Kyouko's skill with pulsing isn't all that well known I think, even in the 9th.
>>41242867And Kyubey.If he hears we plan to go behind his back and steal the Golden Gun, he'll probably throw us in with Chiaki.Actually that might be a good idea.
>>41242867In between the lorry's suspicious situation and our luck/Decu being Decu, we should basically be expecting coobie to be sitting right under Kyouko's bed.
>>41242895... But that's the perfect idea. If he throws us in the same cell, we can just repeat the whole Siberia arc and be done with it.
>>41242867Yeah. The pulsing ability of Kyouko is a secret that Malal herself told Kyouko not to reveal, not even to Sayaka. Only Yuma, Malal, Kyuubey and the Culexus were aware of this. Now Chiaki too, but that´s it. And of course, Midori right now
>>41242659not deadalso[x] Quickly pulse...etc etc
>>41242867Anons are just too paranoid. With the way they're hunting for the spymaster, you'd think she offed Mami long ago and replaced her.
>>41242914Actually no, Kyouko is QB.So is Iori.And Midori.It's QB all the way down.
>>41242659>Yes. Sempai's going to be alright. I'm going to do everything I can to help her.
Watching anon try and figure out who's the spymaster is amusing.I mean, it's obvious the spymaster is posting as anon in the thread to stir up misinformation.
>>41242914Those kinds of situations never actually happened before, you know.
>>41242867QB could hear. Also, if someone like Kyouko, who isn't a Culexus, could pulse, then so could another MG.And this is the kind of thing that can lead to the future that Malal foresaw.
>>41242925Did she now?Maybe she offed Kyuubey and has been running the whole operation for years? Maybe the Akashic realm never existed, and it was all just a huge group fever dream caused by a cullexus.
>>41242944That is very silly Anon, the Spymaster isn't even real.
>>41242948Decu was asked why only the Culexus can communicate by telepathy in MGNQ, considering that in the original series the girls can. He answered that he made it that way, because he wanted and for the story
>>41242925Paranoia is all well and good, however, we have to keep in mind that QB is busy handling the fallout from this crap just as much as Sayaka is busy handling paperwork and Mami is being sent to the Moon.The odds of him listening in, right the fuck now, are pretty damn low.Also, in this case, the risk should be worth it. The fact is that for the best chance of success, we NEED Kyouko, because she's our in with Sayaka. We need that in with Sayaka, because I'm pretty sure that the GW Vault is more secure that Wendy realizes, and actually breaking in will turn out badly.
>>41242994I´m with you. Kyouko is our best potential ally
>>41242983If the Spymaster isn't real, then why is the concept of the Spymaster real?And if conceptual idea of the Spymaster is real, then it must exist somewhere as a force acting upon the MGNQverse.
>>41242994there is no telepathic communication inside the officio. for all we know QB doesn't need to deliberately listen in. to him, kyokos pulsing could be like someone shouting 5 steps away so hears it whether he wants to or not.
>>41243071Nigga, DYERTQ? Kyouko's pulsing has been described by a Cullexus as "screaming it out". Kyouko is as unsecured as it gets.
whats with everyone assuming Iori is a Magical Girl, she just got engaged by whats his name the guy who had a crush on her and shot himself with a tranq gun
>>41242925>she offed Mami long ago and replaced herThat would explain alot.
>>41243102that was pretty much my point
>>41243071Not very convinced. Kyuubey was able to pulse the entire culexus rank from a park during his flashback, so he is very adept in the matter. I think he is very capable of sneaking in Kyouko´s pulse
>>41243106That's the obvious and most reasonable solution.But we are in for the SHADOWRUNS, and the next possible option.Sadly, Decu usually chooses only the third option. Something completely unexpected, something only a nippon could think of.
>>41243102I do believe that she's been training some since then, so I don't think it's quite as bad now. Plus, you guys are forgetting one thing.We didn't vote to ask Kyouko for help. We didn't vote to give her the details on Midori and Wendy's plans either.We voted to tell her the details about Chiaki's situation so she can form her own opinion about it. This is likely something she'd learn eventually anyway, because she was part of the mission and it's better if everyone involved keeps their facts straight. So QB probably won't give a rats ass even IF he can somehow hear this...
So it's actually Chiaki?
>>41243102Nothing Kyouko does is anything other than MAXIMUM, anon.
>>41243181Shit, you are right. Yet, better to be safe than sorry with QB around
>>41243181But we're still telling her that Chiaki is the reincarnation of Devil herself right now.
>>41243181My interpretation was that this included the information we got from Manuke, which would be dicey.
oh god shes going to ask us about yuma
>>41243200Is MAXIMUM STEALTH considered MAXIMUM?
>>41243221That's really up to Decu... though based on Midori's character, she would likely only give out the details that Kyouko would be able to get anyway.Oh and guys, don't forget that Kyouko is also one of Chiaki's aids, so the whole Homusatan thing is something that she'd need to know, much like Midori herself.Plus, her behavior now, with Iori around, shows that she can be quite discreet when it's warranted.
>>41243233If MAXIMUM CHRISTMAS is a thing;Yes.
>>41243289Have I mentioned how weird it is, after reading MGNQ for so long, to experience any official Madoka stuff, in which Kyoko retains both eyes?That's not just me, right?
>>41243312No anon.It's not just you.
>>41243312I watched the movies again recently and kept expecting Midori to show up.So no, not just you.
>>41243339>wanting moeblob mcgee to show upBut why?
>>41243352But Madoka is already in them.
>>41243312I don't feel strange at seeing Kyouko with 2 eyes, but I find myself forgetting that canon coobie is a fucking cunt.
>>41241390>It looks like she's been playing something with...squids?
>>41243352Can we not start this crap until Chiaki's back at the helm, please?
>>41243377Midori never stops being shit, so why stop now?
>>41243372At least all this rampant timefuckery has had the positive side effect of improving Coobs' moral character, perhaps by creating some.
>>41243352Because she's not really a moeblob, it's just an act she pulls so that people underestimate her.She's really competent and, except for when anons controlling her go full retard, she is calculating and effective at analyzing people for their weaknesses.
>>41243339Yeeaah... This happened to me the first time watching Rebellion. Where's Midori? O-oh... Right. We've been at this too long anon
Where's the guy with the AA2 MGNQ class? I need those cards.
>>41243426>Shadowrunning the MidoriStop, anon, before you hurt yourself. The decisions of the thread when in control of Midori are like her own.Thus, she is a fucking retard. And Chiaki is also a fucking retard.Everyone who has ever been controlled by the thread is a fucking retard.
>>41243375Oh, Decu was, or still is, big time into squids. If I remember right, he had a lewd-off with another guy on twitter drawing lewd squids.
>>41243449But... that's:SayakaKyoukoMamiKyuubeyMidoriChiaki.Wow... the 9th has a lot of retards at the top huh?
>>41243473Circlejerking. We just call it circlejerking here. It's faster that way.
>>41243488Malal too. Can't forget the Varigan city mission.
>>41242925>you'd think she offed Mami long ago and replaced her.
>>41243443My sweet summer child.It's The Sims: Japanese 18+ edition. Requires some effort to get it working, but it's worth it if you have more patience and memory than a goldfish.
>>41243488>Wendy is the only non-retard in the main cast right nowwe're fucked
>>41243488And Yuma. We only added another layer of "fucking retard", really. Now she's a "dead fucking retard fucking retard".
>>41243488Don't forget Yuma.
>>41243534I read the Wendy write-ups... I'll have to disagree with this statement.>>41243516>>41243538I wasn't counting dead people.
>>41243538"- who did nothing wrong"
>>41243449On that note, what has been the stupidest move our characters have taken? I mean for each of themGIVING YOUR SOUL GEM TO THE ENEMY
>>41243562>Malal>deadShe lives on in our heads
>>41243519I don't think that callidus can copy somebody's magical powers, and Mami was very thoroughly demonstrating her ribbons and guns during the wookie realm mission.
>>41243562tl;dr EVERYONE in MGNQ is retarded
But Malal DID fuck with Chiakis memories.Just not at that specific instance.
>>41243562Might as well exclude Kyouko, because she just died last Tuesday, Kyuubey because he's always been dead on the inside, Mami because her soul is deader than a single incubator in multiple garbage containers and Chiaki, since she's died at least 10k times to get here.
>>41243594Just like real life.
>>41242698 >>41242706 >>41242742You decide to drop the reassurances and go directly for a pulsed infodump. Everything you know, everything you've learned about Chiaki's situation, gathered up into one barely-coherent ball of information and tossed her way. Hoping to hell that your own relative inexperience with pulsing doesn't jumble up everything and give the red-haired Eversor the completely wrong message. It's not that you didn't want to reassure Kyoko, of course. If anything you feel horrible at piling more onto her plate, seeing as how she's got enough on hers already. But as it stands, she's one of the few people who actually cares what happens to your sempai. Enough that she deserves to know what's really going on, and if she can help at all.Kyoko's one eye goes wide as your clumsily-organized message makes it through the tenuous connection between your minds, and she lets out what sounds like a groan of pain, her hand coming up to rest against the side of her head. The noise making Iori blink, and then immediately move to Kyoko's side, clearly concerned. Her mouth making familiar shapes, her words somehow muffled by the roar of blood pounding in your ears."I'm okay, I'm okay. Just...just a headache coming on, that's all. I'm alright." You hear Kyoko murmur through gritted teeth as she lies back on her bed, knocking a few of her empty snack boxes to the floor. "Probably because I haven't been sleepin' right. Anyway, nothing to worry about." She grins at Iori, before looking back up at you. Her one eye now completely devoid of fear, or horror, or hesitation. Just pure determination.[1/2]
>>41243578Chiaki - obviousMidori - get fuckedSayaka - not banging AmberKyouko - nothing!Coobie - recruiting a fucking retardMumi - [REDACTED]Malal - [KEIKAKU]
>>41243233Of course it is haven't you played Crysis?
>>41243586But this is the spymaster.I've missed shadowrunning with you guys.
>>41243633+ Tell me how I can help, Midorin. + Her pulsed thought stabs into your mind in a frantic, panicked thrust, at utter odds with her own spoken voice. + We gotta get Murderface outta there. Or get her fixed enough that the cat bastard lets her out, whatever we can get done fastest and easiest. I'm-- + She lets out a sigh, a shuddering one, and it's here that you see her press the heel of her hand into her one good eye.+ I already lost Yuma. I ain't gonna lose Murderface. Tell me what I can do and I'll do it. +She...she already knows about Yuma? But--+ She told me personally. Inna dream. Dunno how she did it, but I dreamed of her first thing after I got patched back up. Said she was sorry about leaving, but it was okay because she was getting everyone else back safely. + Kyoko sniffs here, loud and long, like a child about to cry but trying very hard not to. Alarming Iori to the point that you know that the idol is about to call on you at any moment now. + Just...tell me what to fuckin' do. Whatever she turned into, Murderface is still Murderface, and I'm not gonna let her die like that. Not alone. Not in a fucking freezer. +How do you respond?
>>41243638>implying she hasn't banged Amber on the side
>>41243663If she did, she would have children by now.
>>41243661WE GOTTA BREAK INTO THE VAULTSET UP A MISSIONGET TO THE PLANNING ROOMGET INTO THE COSTUMESPUT ON THE MASKHERE WE GOOOOOOO
>>41243661"We need to get the golden gun to Sempai."
There's a plan in the works, I'll explain when FUCKING IORI ISN'T AROUND GOD FUCKING DAMN
>>41243661>+Sayaka's coming to take care of Iori, and then we can work out the rest of the plan+
>>41243696We're pulsing, what does it matter if she's around?>>41243661We gotta do two break ins. One to the vault, one to the silent room.
>>41243661>"We gotta get the -BURP- t-the golden weapons, Morty, we gotta get the golden weapons, do you understand?"
>>41243661>[X] Tell her to wait for now, we're still gathering information and making a plan, but we'll contact her as soon as we have everything in place, because we WILL need her help.>[X] Maybe tell her to see if she can swipe the access card for the GW vault from Sayaka, but ONLY if she has an opportunity for it without it being suspicious. She needs to be MAXIMUM DISCREET.First, let's make sure that this idol business is over and done with, then have a full strategy meeting with Kyouko.
>>41243661"keeping the acting Warmaster eyes out of the silent room or the Golden weapon vault would be good"
>>41243661"I have an idea. I just need help convincing QB to let me do it. And breaking into the Vault and Regalia if he doesn't."
>>41243675Regeneration powers and a slight masochistic streak can help prevent that handily>>41243661>She told me personally. Inna dream. Dunno how she did it, but I dreamed of her first thing after I got patched back up. Said she was sorry about leaving, but it was okay because she was getting everyone else back safely
>>41243709You're the kind of person who thinks nobody will notice you're angry, as long as you're shouting blood and murder in a DIFFERENT language, aren't you?"Body language", anon. Read up on it. Iori already noticed something's off with Kyouko.
>>41243739>implying the child wouldn't have as much regeneration>implying it wouldn't come out looking something more like a half-mutant, half-ugly as sin so just like Midori
>>41243661"I'm still gathering information and coming up with a plan. I'll tell you later once Sayaka has Iori occupied."
>>41243661[X]We need to: gain access to the Gold vault, gain entry into silent room regalia and get the golden DEagle to Chiaki.this is better discussed in private.
>>41243661Breaking in at night.
>>41243661seconding this >>41243725
>>41243661"We need to get her the golden gun. To do that, we need Sakaya to either let us in the vault or look the other way while we break in."
>>41243709It's mentally draining and distracting and Iori is already sus>>41243769Pretty sure fetuses can't contract
>>41243709>We're pulsing, what does it matter if she's around?Iori already noticed from Kyouko's body language. Pulsing is draining and causes migraines.
>>41243661I need the ID card of Sayaka. You think you can take it?
>>41243801I would totally read magical fetus quest.
>>41243709Because having two conversations at once is distracting?And if Kyouko freaks out anymore Iori will catch on.
>>41243821I imagine it would be very similar to Anal Prolapse Quest.
Anyone else getting the feeling that everything we are doing is leading up to the vision of Chiaki on a throne with Midori and Wendy as slaves. I think getting Kyoko in on this is how she got killed in that vision.
>>41243847Actually, getting Kyouko IN would likely prevent that vision from happening, as long as we solve the problem WITHOUT breaking Chiaki out.We NEED to fix this WITHOUT running from the 9th, otherwise we're fucked.
>>41243856Back when Mahou Shounen Quest was a thing and there was a very vocal group that hated it, somebody said in one of the threads that a quest about an anal prolapse would be better than MSQ.And somebody went and made it.
>>41243880And they were right. Anal Prolapse Quest was the best quest.
>>41243856Well I would read a quest about a fetus fighting crime with magic. I have no idea what anal prolapse quest is.
>>41243847Having Kyouko not contracting with the Second Offico is a must. Plus, we need to do this withouth leaving our Officio
>>41243880That chain of events does not surprise me one bit, unfortunately. Truly, you can find anything on the Internet... and probably especially so on places like 4 chan.
>>41243880>>41243904Much better than MGNQ, really. It was a masterpiece in of it self.
>>41243879Why not go rogue?It'd save QB a hell lot of trouble. We can keep him as an ally but officially be gone or something. He won't have to worry about hiding us. Even if he might get worried about us being on the run, at least he won't take the fall for it. And unless we want to kill everyone in the meguca world, we just don't have to show the wings. Bring a Callidus or two along. Being Warmaster isn't a necessary position to getting the best end.Right?
Shit your're right.Maybe we should tell Kyubey about it first?
>>41243928A true work of art, which resounds through the ages as the standard all others should aspire to.
>>41243879as long as we can get the gun that should be easycoobs will let us visit chiaki again, so we don't need to worry about heartcatch squad or how to open a hole in the door.then we use callidus bullshit to prevent them from noticing that we are putting something through the hole.job done
>>41243940Because going rogue legitimizes the Incubators' fear that Chiaki is becoming Homucifer, even if she isn't. And as a result, 99% of all magical girls are now our enemies and are actively hunting us down.And QB does not trust Chiaki right now, or anyone trying to help her. We have to succeed in helping her first before he's willing to believe that she isn't a threat.
>>41243905I can imagine Kharn's kids jumping out of her like a chestburster, jumping onto someone, ripping their face off and using the umbilical cord to bungee jump back into Kharn while flipping the bird at their foes before Kharn's regeneration kicks in.
>>41243978Aaaaaaand, based on the hour, I'd wager that Chikuwa's incoming.
>>41243974implying we wont get caught stealing the gun
>>41243940Honestly? That would be pretty cool.
>>41244000Do they even have that suspicion?
>>41243940It doesn't matter if we go rogue. The Ninth will still be eliminated as the Officio that created Satan and QB executed for being the Incubator that let the scourge of their kind re-manifest.
>>41243940Renouncing to have the resources of an Officio is a bad idea, more if we add the fact that Malal told us that the Golden Weapon users will come for us. Plus, it is likely that the vision of Malal will become reality if we abandon the Officio.
>>41244010Not if decu want to finish this year.
>>41243974Was the hole even large enough to fit the gun through? Deagles are pretty big
>>41243978Alright, pausing thread for today! Next thread on Friday night!Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always great!
>>41243940Because the only place we could go to would be Wendy's 'church'... and they're Pinky cultists. I should not need to elaborate why that's a BAD IDEA right?
>>41244023Yes, they clearly do. Go back and reread the thread where QB is visiting Chiaki in the Silent Room after the Wookie Realm mission, he basically spells it all out for us.
>>41244052I don't know anon sounds like a good idea to me.Whats wrong with getting a little closer to our wife?
implying the murderface experiance ever ends
>>41244046Who is worst girl?
>>41244052I highly doubt Madokami cultists want anything to do with Homucifer.
>>41244075I wish we could go back to murderfacing.It was fun. It was like being an ascended murderhobo with a divine objective and the arsenal of every major military power from thousands of timelines to back it up.Now we're a glorious winged dildo trapped in a cell because we're freaking the fuck out.
>>41244017yes, getting the gun is the problem>>41244043if it's too small then we can't do this without being noticed. properly opening the doors would trigger all kinds of alarms.
>>41244046Thank you for running, Decu!How does "The Steamy Adventures of Miracle Melanie and Murder Marjorie" differ from the source material?
>>41244046Thanks for running!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived!I hope we will pull this off.
>>41243940Basically, the Incubators consider Homura to be an above-Walpurgisnact-level thread. Walpurgisnact requires mobilising EVERY OFFICIO ON EARTH to deal with it. Chiaki goes rogue, and you have all that plus the First Officio to fight off before doing anything.Ain't gonna work.
>>41244101The one currently in control.
>>41244129Either way, it's a pretty solid Plan B according to MGNQ standards.
>>41244106They're not Madokami cultists, those are the 2nd. No, Wendy's group is made up of Pinky Cultists. They essentially worship Faust.The fact that they're called the 'Church of the Golden Land', and that they're a separate sect from the mainstream Blessed Lady religion should say something even to those that are less paranoid or who didn't read any Write-ups.
>>41244046Thanks for running! Will we ever get to know what would happen if we tried to make ramen for Midori?
>>41244110This is what happens when you go full retard. Ask anyone else who was on the mission and they'll tell you giving Ahriman our Soul Gem was full retard.
>>41244046What would happen if Chiaki was left unattended? Would there be an emergent Homura personality who would triumph over the others and take over, or would Chiaki be reduced to a gibbering mess with all of the personalities trying to express themselves at different times?
>>41244129Also they will kill everyone in the Ninth.Although they might spare Mami, everyone else will die.
>>41244046If you had control of all the butts what would you do?
>>41244046Thanks for the fun, boss.
>>41244162They also eat the flesh of fallen angels, unless that was a thing with her officio and not the cult>>41244178If decu ever starts a thread with Chiaki in the silent room and says something like>You are Akemi Homurawe need to nope the fuck out of him
I just hope we'll be able to go back to that comic shop in the airport for a visit. Buy another volume of our favorite magical girl series and hint at the ridiculous reality of it. In full Magical Girl outfit, of course.
>>41244177Before that we were a dildo stuck at a desk. If we hadn't done something that supremely stupid, we would have gone back to being a dildo stuck behind a desk.It was a stupid thing to do, but to be honest I prefer the route the story has taken since then to the route it likely would have taken if we didn't.
>>41244046Are we ever going to be able to go back to being Warmaster without the world trying to murder us?
>>41244177While I agree with the last part, going murderhobo would have meant shooting first and handing over soul gems never.
>>41244000>legitimizes Are you dumb?We found out just a couple of Threads ago that he and Malal have been responsible for our Memorywipes.We outright found out that he was playing on time and waiting for another Mindwipe to kick in so he doesn't have to deal with Chiaki possibly being Satan. He has quite well shown that he sees us as a threat and that he has been lying to us all along. Why by all that is holy would you be worried whether it legitmizes anything he thinks of Chiaki you fucking Incubator-Apologist?
>>41244212>If decu ever starts a thread with Chiaki in the silent room and says something like>>You are Akemi Homura>we need to nope the fuck out of himDidn't he do something like that right after we gave our Soul Gem to Oriko? Start a thread where we were the Homucifer personality?
Alright, Decu has gone to bed and you're stuck with me, kindly point me to things you desperately need me to try to answer or hit me up with other things entirely.or leave, i meani'm not gonna make you stay
>>41244272We came back once, we can do it again. With a little outside help.
>>41244280How much longer until Midori and Wendy fuck in a broom closet?
>>41244280Who is best Nep-Nep?
>>41244240Y'know, I STILL don't get how people were willing to vote for something that dumb. I mean yeah, I can get how it takes things in interesting directions, and if Chiaki keeps the wings and gets the chance to use them now and then, it'd be badass as fuck... but still...Though... if they changed into a pair of wings more suited for Chiaki Matsuda, Warmaster of the 9th, Chosen of the Blessed Lady, yadda yadda yadda, rather than the wings of Homusatan, then I wouldn't object.
>>41244068>Your Incubator looks up at you before shaking his head. "The Akemi Homura I know of and chose not to tell you, Matsuda, is someone that my entire species - for lack of a better term - fears. A malevolent divinity that had very nearly wiped us and our civilization out in the seething, roiling tides of her own hatred." He pauses here for a moment, seemingly searching for the right expression to use. "A winged monster who hides under childrens' beds to prey upon them when they sleep, a cautionary tale used by parents to make their young behave.">What? Like some sort of boogeyman?>"Broadly, yes." Kyuubey nods. "The difference being that we know she's real, and when she returns - in the flesh, with carrion wings and in midnight clad, as you do now - we are tasked in using any and all resources in our disposal to enact revenge. Revenge for our world of origin, and those lives lost in her wrath.">...But that means-->"Yes." Kyuubey nods. "Once any of my brothers discover that you are now Akemi Homura reborn, Matsuda, we are undone. The rest will rally around that brother and strike with monumental force, here and now, to permanently remove you as a threat. And knowing how some of them are admirably thorough in their tasks, no doubt the entire Officio will also be murdered for the grave sin of harboring the Archenemy in its walls, and I will meet my end, executed via atmospheric immolation." They clearly don't have this suspicion. They just have a plan what to do if it happens. They have no idea that we are Akemi Homura.
>>41244280Sidestory where Chiaki starts an anime club when?
>>41244272Yeah, though he also gave us the vote option to revert back to Chiaki. I'm just saying if he doesn't' give us the choice we need to make it a choice.
>>41244271That was just a theory. Malal played things so close her chest was flat.
>>41244280Which girl is worst girl?
>>41244280What genre of computer/console games do you like the best?
>>41244259I´m afraid that is no longer possibleWhy the captcha shows cake!?!!? Now I am hungry!!!
>>41244280When will NECO's pregnancy with Kharn's offspring be officially disclosed?
>>41244330How was that a theory if Malal spilled the beans before we shot her in the face?
>>41244293Before or after breaking Chiaki out. Possibly with Chiaki if done after.And then my lewds become real!
>>41244240We could have gone hunting the other Golden Weapons.Instead we need to still fight the other Golden Weapon users while hiding our wings, meaning we need to bring squishy Callidus with us into fights if we don't want the entire weight of the world coming down on us.Now, you sound like you'd be fine with everything going to shit and Pinky getting what she wants, but that's not what I want.
>>41244280What would you do with control of all the butts?
>>41244330>Malal played things so close her chest was flat.
>>41244129Sure, they can mobilize every Officio on earth. Hell, even QB might be let off, claiming that we turned into the devil after we left.But we have Pinky.
>>41244293for better or worse this will probably be up to anon at some pointI'm hoping they go for it but they never will.>>41244297Iris Heart. Or Cave.>>41244306Outlook is potentially good.>>41244310Only nerds watch anime, and Chiaki hasn't been a nerd for thousands and thousands of cycles!>>41244332Whoever we're playing as! (someone said this before and they were right)>>41244335I'm naturally inclined toward RPGs, although I've lost a lot of my patience with them lately. If the concept is novel and the writing is good, though, awesome. I also like action games, but they're harder to get comfortable with on PC.I mostly play fighters anymore, come to think of it.>>41244393control the butts and you control the world
>>41244379We have no idea who has other Golden Weapons or where they are. We would have had to wait for plot to deliver us the information, and plot in this quest is pretty notoriously slow.Instead, shit is happening. Right now. Even this sidetrack with Iori is addressing a long-standing loose end. I'm liking it.Plus, another excuse for Midoriquest is nice.
>>41244448>implying Maullar can ever draw a flat chest aside from once a yearHe has good taste in waifus though.
>>41244433Who is worst girl that we've never controlled?
>>41244433>I mostly play fighters anymore, come to think of it.I'm going to go out on a limb not really and say Skullgirls, How will I know when I've gotten my ass beat beat by Wendy Cooldown of MGNQ online?
>>41244359I meant we don't know if Kyubey knows, not Malal wiping Chiaki's memories in a fit of irony. Also YUMA WAS RIGHT
>>41244456Well, that is not entirely truth.We know that Nicole Touchdown has the golden mask. Petra, the Warmaster of the 4th, has the golden hammer. The 17th has another (a hook if I remember correctly). The 8th has two golden scythes. And Pinky confirmed that there is a magical girl who owns 5 golden weapons (most likely one from the First). And let´s not forget the golden shield from this timeline Homura
>>41244433>Whoever we're playing as! (someone said this before and they were right)Even QB?
>>41244484Kumatora>>41244492I don't play online much but I run Squigly/Salty Parasoul/Robofortune, either in matching whites or with Marie/Annie/T-elos colors.I also play a little bit of BB but it's been a whiiile and only since it came to steam.Also Hisoutensoku back in the day, Komachi main. (I'm one of two people in the world that will ever say that, I'm sure.)
>>41244535Tell me about NicoleWhy does she wear the mask
>>41244456>We have no idea who has other Golden Weapons or where they are.That's because we didn't ask or put resources on finding them.As Warmaster, that's what we were supposed to do, what QB had tasked us to do, and instead of doing those things we put obstacles in our own path.
>>41244539OMG! QB IS GURL! CALL ZA NECO!...Sorry, I couldn't help it. Shame on me for writing that.
>>41244581On a scale of 1 to OH FUCK NO!, how bad of an idea would it be to rely on the Cult Wendy's a part of?
>>41244553No one cares who she was before wearing it
>>41244623Most likely the vision of Malal will become reality if we enter the cult
>>41244653That's what I believe as well, but I wonder if we could get some more detail than that. Mainly, if anons forced things in that particular direction for whatever reason, could something still be salvaged?Though... after the fucked up with the Soul Gem, we should be low on second chances for the time being.
>>41244653Further proving that Malal would have been right to wipe this failed personality and start over.
>>41244623>>41244688We don't even need to become part of Wendy's cult. Just wander around the world in search of answers. In search of questions for those answers to play along with.
>>41244750You really think Chiaki would be able to hunt down all the other Golden Weapons on her own, with a bunch of them belonging to MGs that are part of other Officios, Officios that would be out for her blood?Are you serious?There is NO WAY for her to survive out there on her own for more than a week before someone finds her and then everyone starts trying to kill her...
>>41244738Failed? I think Chiaki is one of the best personalities for the mission of saving the Universe. She is willing to go to the end, she has friends and comrades who will help her, and she rejects her previous past as Homura. Also, she knows quite a lot of things about what´s happening.Yes, you can always imagine a "perfect" personality for the job, but lest be realistic: there is a very little chance that we will become that personality. I think is better to use what we have than start over with no guaranty of success
>>41244819Why not?We're fucking Satan. We could bring a few devoted people from our Officio and just go rogue with them. Who'd want to kill us? Who COULD kill us?In the end, it's always been us or someone else powerful who's had our back. We haven't really had to use the fully capacity of our Officio to fight off an enemy. Sure, having helicopters is nice, but in the end, we don't need it to get the Golden Weapons.After all, MGs that hold Golden Weapons tend to go corrupt anyways. Even if this isn't so, detaching ourself from the Ninth would be almost necessary to retrieve the hammer, in a way. One way of approaching it would be to just break in and take it somehow. If we were still associated with the Ninth at that point, that would give the Fourth a place to strike. We don't want that. Prevents an escalation of inter-incubator relations, too. And there'd be little reason for other brothers to help, since the incubators would just go "Oh, that's your problem."Same applies to various other GWs.
>>41244860She's also managed to latch onto basically everybody BUT Madoka, which makes her and the three stooges the best homus for the job
>>41244917>Who'd want to kill us?Every single Incubator, and by extension every single magical girl.>Who COULD kill us?If what that Clara doll said is any indication, anybody with a Golden Weapon. Also Sayaka, Kyouko, and this world's Homura.
>>41244623Depends on your objective! But I'm inclined to think it's not as bad as people think it is.Probably.Maybe.I'm sure the opportunity will arise eventually, and hey, nobody there can be a worse monster than Chiaki at this point!>>41244807The steamiest parts are cut, mosaics are everywhere, and Melanie mostly just becomes best friends with the people she meets. After all, she has a girlfriend, and sleeping with other people would be wrong.
>>41244125More american definitely !
>>41244963>Every single Incubator, and by extension every single magical girl.This is implying they knew we were Satan. No one has any idea except for QB. And for reasons of self-preservation, he wouldn't tell anyone. Bring Midori/Wendy and we could hide the wings fine. No need to worry about a surprise visit from an incubator either. If the other incubators were suspicious, they'd already be looking into it.>If what that Clara doll said is any indication, anybody with a Golden Weapon. Also Sayaka, Kyouko, and this world's Homura.Sayaka won't kill us as long as we have JPop. Kyouko won't kill us.And as long as we aren't shitface retarded, we can somehow grab the GWs with some minor trouble.
>>41244860If we bring about the future that Malal foresaw, then yeah, we're a pretty big failure.With Mami and Sayaka dead, Kyouko wanting to kill us, all of the Officios and Golden Weapon users united in killing us, Pinky watching us to see us die, and the Transcendent One ready to take control so that Pinky can kill her.
>>41244917Wasn't there a dream sequence where Homura/Chiaki did exactly that and it ended very badly?
>>41244986Just going to say something totally off-topic here that that comic reminded me of.>HamburgerIs German.>Hot dogIs also German>PizzaIs ItalianIs it just me or is almost every traditionally "American" food really from somewhere else? Unless, of course, we're talking Southern food.
Technically at this point the only way to bring "Chiaki" back is repressing all the other memories of being Akemi and Akuma Homura. So QB has the right idea, honestly.
>>41245066we had 20 golden swords in that vision.i thought that indicated that we had gotten all the GWs.
>>41244964Were you serious about doing something with Enishi?
>>41245118I've done some brainstorming, yeah. I'm not quite sure where I want to go with it yet.Leaning toward echoing the legend of Princess Kaguya, though, with some magical shlub doing impossible tasks for her.
>>41244520BUT SHE FUCKING SAID IT YOU DUMB SHIT. What the fuck is wrong with you why are you even discussing shit where you have to read when you are clearly INCAPABLE OF READING.
>>41245066That´s why we have to prevent that future. And Chaiki has the capacity to make that. Also, what do you mean ehn you say Homusatan is waiting for Pinky to kill her? She personally sayed that her plan is to purify Pinky and spend eternity in her arms
>>41245096Pretty sure there was. Chiaki was sitting on a golden throne and had Wendy and a slumbering Midori dressed up in scandalous slave outfits and stuff.
>>41245090Just because a food originates somewhere else doesn't mean it can't be American, anon. Nation of immigrants still applies. Try to tell me that deep-dish is anything like what the italians eat
>>41245175I didn't realize that that was what the dream was implying.
>>41245149Anon, please, calm down. You can respond withouth insulting. That will make your argument better
>>41245193Telling someone to calm down when you have nothing to say back is truly a classic
>>41245228I am not the same anon that you were insulting. I only wanted to point that there is no need to get that upset
>>41245108We were losing in that vision. So if we did have all of the Golden Weapons, we obviously fucked up if were still losing.>>41245162And some anons want to have that vision come to pass. Malal is still right if we make that future happen, whether by killing Mami like the vision said, or by our wings getting exposed during a fight with a GW user because we have to bring squishy Callidus into every fight we're in, presenting something that the enemy can go after.
>>41245228'When you insult people for no reason it tends to make your argument appear weaker' is completely valid, though.
>>41245142I'm looking forward to it.
>>41245267Of course it is, faggot>>41245265Don't we win once we get all the GWs anyways?
>>41245301>Don't we win once we get all the GWs anyways?If memory serves we have to actually DO something with them. Pinky I think wanted us to kill her with them, while both Homucifer and ourselves wanted to somehow use them to save her, and turn her back into Godoka.
>>41245301>Don't we win once we get all the GWs anyways?gettaloadofthisguy.gifThat's just Step Goddamn One, anon.
>>41245301>Don't we win once we get all the GWs anyways?>>41245108 has pointed out something really interesting
>>41245394Yeah. So as long as we turn her back into Godoka, we don't have to worry about an angry Kyouko/Dead Mami+Sayaka/Angry Officios/PinkyR-Right?
>>41245424>turn her backIt's nice to see sweet, naive optimists in these threads sometimes.
>>41245424There's an argument to be made for "Well, with two god-like beings working together, we could probably make it so none of this ever happened," but I never liked that sort of justification.
>>41245450No, anon! You are not going to dissuade us from achieving our objective! Maybe you are a pessimist who can´t do better, but we are going beyond the impossible to save Madoka!
>>41245505It's that kind of blind optimism that's led to the stupid decisions of this quest, that hope is all that's needed for things to go right when everything indicated that it's a stupid idea.
>>41245643That's because things won't go right unless we make them go right but we always have one goal then let it all go wrong once some shadowrun option comes up
>>41245643No, stupid ideas usually come from "Let's find out what happens if we do THIS!" Though I will admit a couple have come from blind optimism ("Get fucked" probably being prime among them), they usually haven't had as negative an impact as the former category.Besides, Madoka Magica is ultimately a story about hope in the bleakest circumstances, and finding the best outcome when everything's gone to shit.
>>41244301Agreed, I hate those weird artsycrafty looking things. If a successful chiaki reformat happens we should get new wings as evidence.
>>41245799>>41244301have you guys not even watched rebellion
>>41245661Oh, like how "Get fucked" would have gone right?Or handing over our Soul Gem to gt information we already had and winning a fight with no problem only to set up much worse problems later?What about making promises that we break later because anons couldn't understand what they were voting for?It's not letting it all go wrong because a shadowrun option comes up, its that the choices as flawed in the first place. You just want to go full retard and not deal with the consequences.
>>41244964is there anything we should be excited for?
>>41245822I did watch rebellion, and I like those wings on Homucifer.HOWEVER, Chiaki is NOT Homucifer, and anything that makes her different from Homucifer is a good thing. More importantly, Chiaki's own opinion written by Decu shows that she doesn't like Homucifer's style, but she wouldn't necessarily object to a pair of wings that fly by burning the souls of the damned... Get what I'm saying?
>>41245839In the thread were Midori went "get fucked" there was one anon who suggested that with this words:>"Get fucked.">Hanegawa Midori does not often swear, but when she does, she makes it damn well count.He never posted to run straight againts Ribbon-Homu. That part was something that Decu wrote
>>41245839>You just want to go full retard and not deal with the consequences.I can't speak for that anon, but I've on occasion gone for the stupid option because I WANTED to deal with the consequences. Mostly in handing over our soul gem. Get Fucked was before my time, and I'm pretty sure that was just most anons riding an adrenaline high too far. Yuma the Mind Sculptor was just stupid, though I'll admit it had some worthwhile consequences. Defecting the Ninth, though, is just stupid through and through. Nothing good's going to come from it.
>>41245880well i'll be excited if you join the cult
>>41245090Nah, the hamburger is actually american in orgin.
>>41246002Is it possible to remain Warmaster and get the Cult to follow Chiaki to an extent because of their belief that she's 'The Black Shieldmaiden'?I mean, no offense, but your writeups don't paint the Cult in a good light, at all, and I doubt that their resources are really on par with those of an entire Officio.
>>41245918And why did people select it instead of other options to fight smart? What did they expect to have happen?>>41245929So you want to have to hide ourselves wherever we go, we have to drag a Callidus everywhere, essentially doing an escort mission every single time we go out on a mission or fight, or have all of the Officios unite against us.
>>41246100Decu said some time ago that we could eventually learn how to hide the wings on our own. We did a decent job of doing it with Pinky before shit went to hell, even if it didn't fool her for a second because she's a fucking insane goddess.
>>41246086Well I meanIt's a cultIf I painted them in a good light I'd be a liar, but we're not exactly shitting sunshine and daisies normally anyway.As for whether it's possible...I wonder?
>>41246100>And why did people select it instead of other options to fight smart? What did they expect to have happen?I only stated that he wanted to insult Ribbon-Homu. I am pretty sure that when he wrote that he never wanted to charge straight-on againts an incarnation of Homura who is a happy murderer. Also, teh others anons who voted wanted to tell flip the bird to her, but not anyone voted for a direct charge. It was Decu who decided to charge blindly against Ribbon-Homu. Read the thread and you will see it
>>41246157I think it's kind of silly to assume that yelling at someone to get fucked doesn't imply a direct pants-on-head retarded charge.What was she going to do? Go full stealth after insulting her directly?
>>41246157Again, when the vote was to choose how to fight, and you choose to directly insult the opponent, what did you expect to happen?Maybe if he didn't want stupid shit to happen he shouldn't have opted for something stupid.
>>41246193>>41246216Going with Callidus magic it´s an option. What people wanted was to made clear to Ribbon-Homu that Midori wasn´t going to take her crap. As I am saying, Decu it´s the one who made Midori charge when no one voted for it. I am sure that a second round of votes on how to approach the matter would have resulted in anons voting for stealth
>>41246216I honestly don't think Decu is terribly bothered if the vote goes one way or another. He might be surprised once in a while, sure, but I doubt he gives us an option he doesn't have a plan for.
>>41246267...and I'm saying if you yell GET FUCKED at someone your plan is probably not to immediately try to sneak up on them.Stop trying to pin anon's jackassery on Decu.
>>41246311I wouldn't even call it anon's jackassery, it was a misunderstanding that bit us in the ass.
>>41246311Read the thread. Ribbon-Homu asks Midori to handle the other Homus. Decu open the vote on what to respond to her. People vote "get fucked" to Ribbon-Homu. And then Ribbon-Homu told the shadows to kill us. And instead of opening up another vote on how to initiate the fight, Decu made Midori charge straight to Ribbon-Homu. No matter how you look at it, Decu didn´t gave anons the choice on how to initiate the fight
>>41246343Like the misunderstanding about promising Wendy that we'll be a better girlfriend this time around, then immediately breaking it.Because that level of misunderstanding is just plain stupidity.
>>41246446What does that have to do at all with the "Get fucked" scenario?Besides, we ARE being a better girlfriend. Just not to her. Yet. That's part of why I want to get Wendy and Midori to warm up to each other, so we can turn this love triangle into a legit menage a trois and make good on that promise.
>>41246555Totally with you, anon
>>41246555>What does that have to do at all with the "Get fucked" scenario?Because when it was pointed out that we were breaking promises we had just made, anons said that they didn't realize we were making a promise when they voted for the option, even though that's clearly what was being said.Just like if anons voted for a highly aggressive retort and didn't think that it would result in a highly aggressive and direct course of action, they obviously misinterpreted the vote.
>>41246639What you say about the highly aggressive option is true. But, you have to accept that in real life, when someone insults another person aggresively that doesn´t he/she is going to fight, only that he/she wants to make clear how he/she despises the other person. In the get fucked case is the same. First, Midori release stress by unsulting, and then she can think with a straight head on how to initiate the fight. But as I have posted, Decu didn´t gave us that choice. Yes, as you say, is possible that he interpreted that that answer means a direct charge. The thing is that anons only voted what to respond, not how to initiate the fight. They weren´t voting about a fight, but about a verbal discussion
>>41246555I don't know if we're Bing better, what with leaving our girlfriend a mess that she has to clean up that could get everyone killed.
>>41246808That has less to do with being a shitty girlfriend and more to do with being a shitty Warmaster.
>>41246802And the choice to make was for how to handle the fight, not just a verbal response.That should have been, and was obvious for everyone else.
>>41246886If it was so obvious, then whey didn't another choice win?
>>41246915In 200 threads I have still not figured this out.I think people were just riding the high of managing not to fuck anything up and assumed that this was somehow the point where they could no longer fail.
>>41246886Maybe. I wasn´t there for that vote. Still, my point is that the option on how to handle the fight wasn´t still on the table, only the verbal response. It wasn´t something obvious, and anons voted only what Decu presented them (verbal response) and not voted over a fight that still wasn´t on the table
>>41246915Because, either they misinterpreted the option because they're dumb, or they were dumb enough to think that believing something will go right will make it go right.Most likely both.
>>41244433is attarou really your bitch?
