You look at Sayaka and shake your head. You know your sempai more than anyone. Even if she's already turned into the thing that Kyuubey accuses her of being, you know she would never give in to that side of her.. She'd kill herself first - and she nearly did, back at Siberia.The blue-haired Eversor doesn't seem to be convinced. "...Look, Hanegawa--no, Midori. I want to trust your word on this, I really do, but what if you're wrong? What if Murderface IS gone, and what little common sense you're making this decision with is compromised by your feelings for her?"You feel yourself go cold at this, and make to reply -- that is, until Kyoko speaks up again. This time putting her hand on Sayaka's arm. "Sayaka, I love ya and everything, but sometimes I wonder if I'm really the dumb meathead Eversor in this gig." She grins toothily here, before giving the Acting Warmaster's shoulder a squeeze. "Midorin knows what she's doin'. Things look dicey at the moment, sure, but when Murderface's involved, I'll trust Broccolihead over whatever our mutant cat boss is flappin' his gums around with."You smile in thanks at Kyoko's vote of confidence, before turning to Sayaka. ...Alright, sure. You're not going to deny that you may be 'emotionally compromised'. And yes, there's a good chance you're wrong about this. You don't have all the facts, after all, only what you know right now. "Yes, that's what I'm talking about--" The blue-haired Eversor says, but you raise a hand to interrupt her. Signaling that you're not done just yet.Consider, then, that you actually are wrong, and what Sayaka is saying is true - that your sempai is in fact truly and utterly gone, replaced by the monster that's got Kyuubey spooked.
>>41908717It's pretty much a guarantee, then, that Regalia won't be able to hold her for long. That means everyone - not just you, not just the entire Officio, but everyone in the world - is fucked no matter what they do. With that kind of alternative, then isn't doing something - anything, basically - worth doing now?You can either try this and risk dying for something, or everyone here can stand by and die for nothing.Silence as Sayaka stares at you once more, before slowly letting out another sigh. "...Christ. Alright. If this is the best you think we can do, then let's do it." She rakes her fingers through her hair once more, and you get the impression that she's still struggling to take this all in. "You guys are pulling this off tonight, right? I probably can't help out any more than I already have, but is there anything else you need squared away so this goes as smoothly as it can?"Is there anything you need help with?How do you respond?Actually, there is. (Write-in)I think we have everything handled. We just need to pull it off.
>>41908745>[x]I think we have everything handled. We just need to pull it off.
>>41908745>[X]I think we have everything handled. We just need to pull it off.Doubt there's anything Sayaka or Kyouko could do that could actually make a difference at this point.
>>41908745[x]Actually, there is. (Write-in)Open the Vault door, take a look around as if checking to make sure that all of the Golden Weapons are still there, then leave.Midori and Wendy will go in at the same time, under cloak, grab the DEagle when Sayaka turns to leave, and exit at the same time as she does.That way, if QB checks up on why the Golden Vault is being accessed, Sayaka has an alibi, and Midori and Wendy will be the only ones blamed.
>>41908745>[X]Actually, there is. (Write-in)Ecstasy Darks. She is the only one who could throw off this entire operation. If she could be conveniently away from her post to give a report or something, that would give us the window we need to get into regalia.
OK, we have sorted:>Keycard for the Golden Weapon vault from Sayaka (willingly)>Distracting Heartcatch Squad (Enishi)We need a way to get the Golden Deagle from the vault to Regalia unnoticed. If Sayaka or Kyouko can keep QB distracted for a few minutes, that should be enough.>Captcha: select all images that are pancakes
>>41908797This makes no sense. If Sayaka's seen entering the Vault at any point today, then it would be naturally suspicious, seeing as 2 Callidus MGs performed the heist.Who's to say she wasn't in on it? An alibi would involve being somewhere where others could confirm her presence when the heist happens. The card going missing is much more easily explained than Sayaka's presence in the GW vault.
>>41908745>[x]Actually, there is. (Write-in)We need information on the alarms and other security measures that guard the vault and regalia.
>>41908811Heart squad girls will be handled by Enishi, if you think any rookie Eversor will see through her tricks, then she's not deserving of her rank, at all.
>>41908745>Actually, there is. (Write-in)"Try to keep everyone away from Regalia as much as you can, and from the GW vault. Warmaster orders"
>>41908853Wendy already scoped those out, and Sayaka has no reason to access any more info than that without it being suspicious. Gebuz people, did you even read the previous threads?
>>41908874Those orders are already in effect courtesy of QB, since he doesn't want people finding out about the Chiaki thing, or getting fucked by golden shit. Wth people?
>>41908745>[X]I think we have everything handled. We just need to pull it off.
>>41908882Did you read the previous threads? Wendy can see the cameras and stuff but an alarm that would be triggered by opening the vault or silentroom door? How would she know about that?
>>41908923If we got that full on paranoid, QB would also ensure that any search on the GW's security would be recorded as well, so just looking for that info would blow our cover.That said, there's no indication that entrance to the vault with the Warmaster's card was ever monitored. That might have changed with Chiaki's current situation, but somehow I doubt that QB thinks she'd bother sneaking in there if she goes nuts.Info on Regalia might be useful, but it's debatable if there's any to be had, or if Sayaka can get to any of it in the first place, at least not in a useful timeframe.
>>41908745>I think we have everything handled. We just need to pull it off.
>>41908903Just in case someone decides to make tourism at the crucial moment
>>41909007No orders will change that lol. Seeing as there are already a set of orders to that effect from QB, anything Sayaka can do or say won't change anything. If someone will be wandering around where they shouldn't they'll do it regardless of any extra measures.
>>41908797This doesn't work with our plan to assert that we swiped the card from Sayaka, and it's conceivable that it fucks us over if you need the card to get out as well as in. I can't support this plan, although it did initially sound quite clever.
>>41908745>[x]Actually, there is. Any information you have on the sensors in the Vault and Regalia. Also, if you can keep Kyuubey occupied, that would be good.
Anons, as someone very new on 4chan who have discovered this quest recently, I want to ask: why the people is so abrassive? There are times when two persons can have a pacific discussion, exchanging ideas. But normally, when someone post something, the answer of the person who disagrees is full of insults, like "retard", "get out", "autistic moron" and worse things. And of course, the first poster responds with the same fury. Why can't we be respectful with each other, even if you don't agree with what other person is posting?
>>41908745Late, but still necessary.
>>41909209Board culture. Welcome to 4chan though, faggot.Insults mean pretty much nothing here, and you shouldn't read them with the same gravity you would elsewhere. It's just part of the native dialect.
>>41909133>if you need the card to get out as well as inThat would be true if we were going to leave after Sayaka, but the idea was to leave with her.And yes, it does require changing the plan, from asserting that we swiped the card from her, to Midori and Wendy taking advantage of Sayaka checking up on the Vault. Though, since Sayaka doesn't have a known regular schedule of checking on the Golden Weapons, there would need to be a further lie that Midori had asked Sayaka to check the Vault since it's been documented before that Golden Weapons can disappear from the Vault and appear with Chiaki of their own accord.I suppose it's a question of which is more believable: that Midori could swipe a card from Sayaka, the Eversor Rank Leader, or that Midori could use social engineering to get Sayaka to open the door for her.
>>41909209Board culture and general attitude dictates I tell you to lurk more.I'll be nice and say 'it's just the way we roll, you're expected to do that back.'Faggot.
>>41909209Just enjoy the drama, it's what I do, get some popcorn and read people being complete idiots over the Internet. It's fun, you should try it.
>>41909209As someone who was new like you and has been around here for enough time, let me tell you my history: when I first arrived here, I knew some disturbing stories about the place. I thought that it couldn't be that bad, that not everyone is like that. At first, everything went fine: occasionally someone appeared with insults, making me think "what an asshole". The more I spent time in 4chan, the more I realized that EVERYONE was like that. I wasn't too preocupied: I was polite and educated all the time, trying to make ingenious jokes and clever posts, and never needed to put myself at the same level as the rest of the people who acted like chimpanzees with Down syndrome full on cocaine. I was superior to them. Then, the insults were directed at me for some reason or another. That really angered me. I couldn't help but answer back in the same way, even if only by spite. Little by little, I changed my mind: it was easier to jump at the minimal chance instead of maintaining composture, and easier to make absurd and stupid jokes instead of well-thought arguments. And before I realized it, I had changed, to never return to my previous self. Now I am one OF them, I am WITH them! Long lost are my hope and dreams, only to be replaced with stupidity, mental retardation and unuseful things in my life that consume all my time. It is too late to do anything now, except fall deeper in this hellhole. I don't know you: you can be destined to be the new Poe, the new Socrates or the new Newton. If that's the case, abandon this place now, because you will shut the door to that brilliant future if you stay here and will become a walking waste of oxygen. Remember, anon: there is no scape once you enter; you are here FOREVER!
>>41909209>new on 4chanThere's your problem newfagWelcome to 4chan & lurk moar u fukcin fagetSerious answer: that's more or less the culture on all boards on the 4chins. Insults aren't actually insults here, no matter how heated it may seem. It doesn't really mean anything; even in this quest, people are not nearly as angry about stuff as they appear to be while posting.
>>41909209Because of the very tight timeframe we have during votes, ideas and votes must be attacked, criticised, and torn down in as quick and effective manner as possible. There is neither the time nor the margin for error that the compromises and politeness for social cohesiveness require.We are here to make the right choice (defined as getting us closer to a majority goal), regardless of how many feelings are hurt in the process, than the wrong choice which doesn't hurt people's feelings.
>>41909209Board culture. Helps you get a tougher skin. Soon enough you'll be doing the same thing to other anons, if you want. It's more or less good-natured ribbing.
>>41909209< there you go.
>>41909209Because you are being judged by the quality of your post, and the content of your statement alone. This encourages you to read shit after yourself, and avoid making your post a fucking trainwreck, like the one you made just now.You cannot and should not gain street cred here, become accepted, or any of that. Don't expect it to happen. Every time you post, you are tested, and should be better for it.Speaking of which, you really need to learn english.

>>41909209>>41909549This isn't always the case, and that brings up another point:Do not EVER fall into the shoddy mental trap of thinking the board is a true hivemind. Sometimes, no matter what you say and how you say it, you will still be called a faggot and have your post declared objectively incorrect even though the topic is purely subjective.Don't be a retard and think that "the board can't make up its mind". The board is not "a single mind"; the person who call "you're waifu/favorite vidya a shit" isn't the same one who might call an other cartoon girl/video game shit.

>>41910038As long as you can make yourself understood easily it's no that important since you learn by writing and reading anyway.
>>41908767>>41908795>>41908912You think for a moment before shaking your head. ...No, you think you've got everything handled. All that's left is to basically pull it off without everything going completely - as Sayaka herself put it - ass-upwards. Besides, you don't want to involve Sayaka more than she already is right now, or have her abuse her Acting Warmaster status too much, since you are trying to minimize the fallout that this clearly unsanctioned operation would inevitably cause."...Yeah. That's...yeah." Sayaka is clearly having trouble finding words here, still obviously struggling with the idea of such wanton, premeditated insubordination. But just as you expect her to change her mind, to suddenly go back on her words and report this to Kyuubey - she instead simply makes to leave the room, giving Kyoko a quick peck on the cheek and then patting you briskly on the shoulder on her way out. "Good luck, Midorin. I'm...well, everyone is counting on you, so...don't fuck it up."You manage to force a smile here as the blue-haired Eversor finally leaves, taking with her the barrier that had muffled everything said inside the room from the outside world. A sigh of relief leaving your own lips as the door clicks shut, leaving you alone with your sempai's still-recovering best friend."...Don't think of her too badly, yeah, Midorin?" Kyoko speaks up after a moment, and you turn to see her cracking open another box of chocolate-covered breadsticks, an apologetic smile curling her lips. "Sayaka's always been a straight shooter ever since she contracted. Bought everything Kyuubey told her so hard he had to tell her to take it down a couple notches." She chuckles here, before crunching down on a particularly tasty-looking stick with so much gusto that you feel like joining in with the indiscriminate snacking. "Something like this ain't easy for her."[1/2]
>>41910134Well, you understand that, but...surely she's broken a couple of rules before, right? Everybody does so sooner or later. No one's that much of a stickler to the rules--The red-haired Eversor grins here, before shaking her head. "Yer underestimatin' just how huge the stick in her, ah, ass is, Midorin." Kyoko goes briefly red at the expression, before continuing. "Fact is, the handful of times she ever got into trouble was because she was followin' orders a bit TOO hard, if you get what I'm sayin'. 'Course she mellowed out a lot after that, but...yeah." She shrugs. "Don't worry about her givin' the game away or anything, though. The one thing Sayaka hates more than breaking rules is going back on her word. 'Specially when it's this important."You nod at Kyoko, before turning back to the door where the Acting Warmaster had left from. ...Yeah. You hope so.Anyway. It looks like you have everything ready. You just need to decide just when to pull this off.Evening, when most of the Officio is be having dinner in the communal cafeteria or in their own quarters.Midnight.A few hours before sunrise.

>>41910161>Evening, when most of the Officio is be having dinner in the communal cafeteria or in their own quarters.It's not like they have a shift-change down there, meaning that Heartcatch must get their food delivered.

>>41910532We have no idea what month it is in MGNQ-Land, so better to err on the side of caution. Plus, as a Rank Leader, Enishi might be approached by others during dinner, or have appointments, etc. So later is better for her.

Holy wow decu you need to slow down your posting speed. I can't keep up with all the updates
>>41910195 >>41910201 >>41910278 >>41910306You decide to pull off the operation in the evening, right around the time when most of the Officio would be having dinner, either in the communal cafeteria or in their own quarters. Sure, you'll have a smaller time window to pull everything off, and there's a higher chance of someone inadvertently stumbling into the proceedings, either a straggler or someone simply walking dinner off - but it's also the only other time at night when most of the Officio would be legitimately occupied, along with the rest of Heartcatch Squad. Whatever Enishi plans to do about the color-coded eversors, it'll probably work better while they're still eating their meal in preparation for the long night ahead.You spend the rest of the day, then, quickly and discreetly coordinating with Enishi and Wendy as well as gearing up for the operation itself. Getting Enishi up to speed was easy - all she needed was the time in which you needed Heartcatch Squad distracted, and immediately declared herself ready to strike at your signal. Wendy was a bit trickier - not that she needed any special instructions or anything like that, just that she seemed adamant that you also ascribe to her own idea of, well, being prepared.You understand bringing along a knife, and maybe a silenced pistol loaded with tranquilizer rounds strong enough to knock an Eversor out. You also get the deal with the mask. But you're not too sure what bringing along a, a laser sword and a bandolier of grenades would help in a stealthy undertaking like this. Wendy had grumbled and insisted that it was 'just in case', but you simply wouldn't have it. In the end, you took an extra knife and the pistol, as well as the mask she wouldn't budge on.[1/2]
>>41911648Give the man a break, his dayjob drains the life out of him.
>>41911718WHY DID WE TURN DOWN A LASER SWORDthat was dumber than "get fucked"you are awesome decu never stop
>>41911648It only feels that way because you aren't shitposting quickly enough and filling the thread with shit!Remedy that!
>>41911718It's a plain white fox mask, almost like the ones they sell in festivals, but made out of something much tougher and hardier than simple paper pulp or porcelain. How it fits onto your face is also unexpectedly intricate and high-end as well, with proper harness straps that buckle across the back of your head rather than simple string around the back of your ears. A brief comparison with Wendy's own mask, and you see that yours is an exact mirror of hers - except where hers is sculpted as to be grinning mischieviously, yours has a more somber, melancholic expression, almost to the point of dourness.You waited for evening in your own quarters, with Wendy sent ahead to scope out the vault in advance. As soon as the call for dinner came over the public announcement system, you let exactly ten minutes pass, before finally moving out on your own. Closing and locking your quarters' door behind you, but not before taking one last look at your own bed....This is it, you thought. There's no going back after this. Whatever happens after tonight, win or lose...well, no one can say you didn't try.Leaving your quarters, you start to make your way to the vault. The corridors are relatively deserted, with a few stragglers here and there making their way back to their quarters, takeout and food trays balanced carefully on their hands. You deliberately walk slowly, unhurriedly, picking the longer and less-walked routes rather than the direct (and oftentimes the most congested) ones. This goes just like you planned it, and you immediately get to the same floor the vault is in without anyone so much as spotting you or greeting you.[2/3]
>>41911758The next turn brings you as close to the vault as you possibly can be without actually being in front of it. But instead of taking those last few steps to cross that distance, you instead walk a bit past it, towards a spot in the adjacent corridor with a subtly-flickering shadow at the corner. You lean back against the wall, removing yourself from the field of vision of the cameras perched above the vault doors as well as giving yourself time to catch your breath. ...All this adrenalin is making you breath hard. You need to start exercising again."...What fucking took you so long, Green?" The shadow hisses as you sidle up behind it. A moment later, and the shadow resolves into something more material, something more recognizable - Wendy herself, with her grinning fox mask already concealing her features. "You take a big shit before coming here or what?"...What? No, you didn't! You couldn't even eat your own dinner, for Chrissakes!"Yeah? Well, you probably should've. Once this thing starts rolling, we won't have any time for bathroom breaks." Wendy snaps, before quickly peering around the corner to look at the vault. "Alright, how do you want to do this? You want me to go trick the cameras and cover you while you go in and take the target, or the other way around? One of us has to be stay out here in case someone comes around."What do you do?Have Wendy trick the cameras and cover you while you sneak in to take the Golden Weapon.Trick the cameras and cover Wendy while she sneaks in to take the Golden Weapon.Other.

>>41911899We don't know what they think of Wendy, Midori is the better illusionist of the two.We're also choosing between a Chosen of the Blessed Lady versus a Vessel, and which is more likely to resist the corrupting effects of a Golden Weapon.Have Wendy trick the cameras:1. More likely that the Three Stooges will be compliant with Midori2. Being a Vessel may impart more resistant to GW corruption.Have Midori trick the cameras:1. Midori is the better illusionist2. Since Wendy was brought back from Soul Gem destruction, her Soul Gem may resist corruption better
>>41911953While that sounds tempting we would have to wait for her to finish.
The thing is, Wendy was exposed to Golden Weapon fuckery before, so she should be more used to resisting it anyway. Plus, the DEagle is one of the more docile weapons, and the stooges are unlikely to try and pull off any shit unless someone tries to use it, which Wendy or Midori aren't.Still, Midori is the better illusionist here, and she's more familiar with the 9th as well as with the people that might later watch the tapes, so she can weave an illusion that is far superior than anything that Wendy can attempt.
>>41911783[x]Trick the cameras and cover Wendy while she sneaks in to take the Golden Weapon.As Midori knows the Ninth better, she can make an illusion better since her illusions are dependent on the expectations of her target.

>>41911783[x]Have Wendy trick the cameras and cover you while you sneak in to take the Golden Weapon.No, I dont trust Wendy even as far as I could throw her. No Wendy near the golden shit.Also>mfw Kumachan will definitely show up and throw a wrench in our plan because we didnt pull her into this
>>41912160Oh I forgot about her.
>>41912148>Midori also had her soulgem built back so that's 3 pointsThat's actually point 2; having her Soul Gem rebuilt is what made her into a Vessel.
>>41912160>face off between Midori and Kumatora to get to the cell
>>41912160Oh-oh, you're right. If that happens, what do we do?
Use the Power of Friendship? aka Diplomacy
>>41912292The power of friendship in magical girl lore means lesbian sex.
>>41912292Eh, convincing Kuma to help shouldn't be too big of an issue considering how much she looks up to Chiaki and all that. Also, if she walks in while we're actually delivering the weapon, then Enishi can probably handle her, or Wendy, though the later is likely a bad idea...That said, whenever I see that version of Chiaki, my brain gets flooded with error messages.
>>41912345So DEFINITELY use the power of friendship?
>>41912351>That said, whenever I see that version of Chiaki, my brain gets flooded with error messages.Because you don't know what's good for you. I can totally see the transformation of Midori and Chiaki into Cure White and Cure Black in my mind.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPrRBPdlUTE&list=PL4B276698F020498C&index=5
>>41912213She's Midori's manga assistant. I'm sure it'll be fine.
>>41912440Well, the problem is that Midori is, no matter how you see it, betraying her officio, and Kumatora is not going to take that wellAlso, it seems that now a lake can be considered a pool
>>41912515Next you'll say hamburgers are sandwiches.Don't fall to Captcha, anon. Fight through the night.
>>41912440>you can't see meI didn't know Midori was the champ.
>>41912571But anon, that question was settled on this very night.
>>41913175Don´t Choo Choo
>>41913219From where is that gift, please?
>>41913252A Final Fantasy 15 trailer. She does not actually awoo, actually, if I'm remembering correctly, and her voice is an immediate bonerkill. Sadly.
>>41913289>>41913321Looks like a she to me.

>>41911801 >>41911824 >>41911839 >>41911860Wendy is silent as you tell her your decision, and she nods as soon as you finish. "Been a while since I had to do something like this," she murmurs as two shadowy forms, each one seemingly made out of tendrils of sentient smoke, curl away from the Callidus before gently floating up to the cameras themselves. At the same time, she unholsters her tranquilizer pistol from its holster, twisting a slender supressor onto its muzzle and then racking the greased slide. "Usually I just kill everyone first, andn then take the CCTV footage." She turns to you, her fox mask grinning murderously in the dim half-light of the corridor. "Mask up. Wait for my signal."You do so, pulling the mask on, its heavy straps securing tightly and snugly around your skull. It's not...uncomfortable, not as such, and whoever designed it seemed to have discovered a way for your breath to aspirate neatly through the mouth and nose areas of the mask, instead of simply being filtered back to you and creating a muffled, stuffy kind of existence. It's a bit...liberating, in a way. Making you feel like you can do anything with the mask on and not be accountable for anything at all.You probably could get used to this--"Alright, cameras taken care of. Go." Wendy growls, and you immediately move out of cover and walk briskly towards the vault. Your heart pounding faster with every step you take, the cobalt-black keycard's edge digging into your hand with how tightly you're holding it.Relax, Hanegawa, you can do this, you fervently remind yourself as you bring yourself ever closer to betraying the Officio that took you in. You managed to hide from the Armored Fragment in two overlapping barriers - and that's with the grinning, cannibalizing, pink dress-wearing blight of the universe in your arms. Sneaking into a vault should be a piece of cake.Three steps. Two steps. One step.[1/2]
>>41913553And you stop as you behold the vault doors in front of you, the keycard slot's notification screen lighting up as soon as you glance towards it. A single sentence emblazoned there in pixellated letters:KEYCARD REQUIRED.With a shivering, white-knuckled grip, you slide the keycard through the vault door's proffered card track. A moment later, and the doors begin to slowly and creakingly grind open in slow, ponderous cranks. As soon as you spot the opportunity to, you finally step inside - and the freezing cold air inside hits you with an almost palpable force that for a moment you wonder if you've confused the vault witha walk-in freezer instead."Still clear. No one else around." Wendy's voice crackles in your ear, delivered by the built-in headset in the mask itself. You turn , and you have enough time to give her a nod just as the doors themselves start their laborious journey to close behind you."Update me when that changes," You reply, before facing forward again and moving slowly into the vault proper, careful not to touch anything. Wendy's reply of acknowledgement is a single brief burst of static, pulsed down the connection before the connection itself goes quiet.You keep moving forward, looking around the sharply-illuminated room of reinforced concrete, steel and golden madness. Your breath leaving your lips in white The vault is...well, it's your sempai's vault. It's the first time you've been here, and the first time you've seen all the Golden Weapons stored in one single place. All neat and tidy in their own numbered racks, among those not yet 'occupied'.[2/3]
>>41913574What surprises you the most - looking at them right here and now - is how mundane and harmless they look, once you look past their golden facades. You suspected them to be rattling in their racks, or emitting some kind of shrill screaming cacophony of the crazed, blood-maddened undead - but instead they're quiet, docile, as if your presence here had reduced them to the lifeless things they should be, instead of what they only seemed to be.Still, you're going to be careful. Really careful.Because f--frig if you're letting one of these things do what they nearly did to your sempai, and everyone else who'd had the unfortunate luck of being chosen for them.Inching a bit closer to the raised table at the middle of the vault, it's here that you see the rack - well, the framed foam inset, anyway - for your sempai's Desert Eagle. The main objective of this first half of the mission. And it's gleaming, almost temptingly so. The harsh glow of the fluorescent light above making the metal shimmer tantalizingly, begging to be held. Begging to be used.What do you do?Immediately take it and leave. Time's of the essence here.Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.
>>41913626>Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.
>>41913626>[X]Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.Obvious choice is obvious when golden shit is involved.
>>41913626[x]Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.
>>41913626>[x]Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.
>>41913626>Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.Basically a non-vote.
>>41913626>Immediately take it and leave. Time's of the essence here.
>>41913626[x]Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.Best to be careful. Does anyone remember if Chiaki told Midori about the souls inside the GW's yet?
>>41913626>>41913626>Immediately take it and leave. Time's of the essence here.
>>41913626>[X]Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.Everything is alright, nothing is going to jump off its rack and kill us.
>>41913626>[X]Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.
>>41913626[x]Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.>frigYou tried.
>>41913626>Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.Don't see the harm in doing so.
>>41913626>Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.Better to be safe than sorry
Guys what if saying something in the vault triggers alarms because things detect that it's not Chiaki's that's in the room
>>41913626>[X]Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY.....
>>41913757Then we are royally fucked but at least we won't have startled any golden weapons from their slumber.
>>41913757Chiaki is not the only one athorized to enter the vault. Sayaka is too. I think putting some device like the one you are saying is too much of an issue
>>41913757Doubtful, wasn't there at least one time when Chiaki sent someone else to retrieve or send back a GW? I'm pretty sure there was, and I don't think QB had enough time to change the security protocols for the vault. Nor would he have time to monitor it 24/7.
>>41913626>[X]Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.I almost did get to this thread
>>41913626>[X]Clearly ask permission first before taking it. It's...it doesn't make sense, but you feel like you have to.Let's not fight them on this.
>>41913626>Immediately take it and leave. Time's of the essence here.Did we at least being a napkin or gloves or something to avoid direct skin contact?
>>41913943What would it feel like to fuck Murderface-Chiaki?
>>41914056He meant the armored and hulked up version lol.
>>41913979did you say?
>>41914028>>41914128Probably about the one partner you'd want to just lie there and take it.
>>41914128You´ll probably end up with cuts all over your groin, legs and upper body
>>41914210Sounds like Midori's ideal waifu.
>>41914028She just needs someone to hold her close and tell her everything will be alright, while gently running their fingers through her hair.
>>41914273I thought Wendy was the one with the knifeplay fetish
>no chikuwaWhat're you trying to pull decu
>>41914335that's when she would be doing the knifing
>>41914368No, he is going to resist one more post and then hit the bed
>>41913655 >>41913661 >>41913662You pull on a pair of white cotton gloves you've prepared for just this moment. You're not entirely sure if the Golden Weapons take skin contact into account when driving their wielders crazy, but you'll take any precaution available to avoid something like that.Just as you make to gingerly pick out the oversized, blocky firearm from its customized foam inset - you suddenly get the irrational, almost laugh-out-loud silly idea that you should be asking permission first, rather than simply taking it. You have no idea where the idea itself came from, only that it popped up in your mind, unbidden and unwanted...."Please..." You try to begin, feeling your face grow hot as you hear your voice echo around the room, tinny and hesitant. Urgh. Are you actually doing this? Are you actually asking a gun permission to pick it up?Crazier things have happened, you tell yourself. You shouldn't even be surprised at this point, honestly."Please excuse me." You finally manage to complete your sentence, before finally plucking the Golden Desert Eagle from its foam-cut home. Lifting it free from its confines and letting its weight rest heavily on your gloved hands.It's...heavier than you expected, and you expected it to be really heavy. How your sempai just picks it up and uses it like she does, you'll never figure out.It DOES feel really good to hold, though. As heavy as it is, it feels almost like an extension of yourself, the handle seemingly molding itself to fit your grip better. But other than that, it doesn't seem to be turning you into a monster just yet.You stand perfectly still for a couple of seconds, before letting out the breath you've been holding.Well, it seems to have worked. The asking permission part, anyway. Working as quickly as you can, you stuff the gun into the whitesnake leather holster conveniently hanging from the raised table, before placing the entire thing back into your inventory.[1/2]
>>41914611"Package procured," You whisper to Wendy through your mask's built-in mic. "Coming out now. Is it still clear outside?"You hear Wendy cursing over the frequency. "...Shit. Two people. One eversor, one vindicare." A moment. "Want me to get rid of them?And then you hear it.A faint rattling behind you, coming from the rack where the XX Golden Weapon should be.How do you respond?No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!Don't hurt them. Just knock them out, or something!
>>41914694>[x]Don't hurt them. Just knock them out, or something!PANIC

>>41914694>[X]No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!Fuuuuuuuck
>>41914694>No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!Technically, the katana can´t move by itself. As much as Kirika wants to bitch, she can´t do shit if we don´t touch the blade
>>41914694>No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!
>>41914694[X]No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!We aren't on a timer yet, and if those people are expected somewhere, knocking them out could cause problems later.
>>41914694>[x]No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!If Muramasa is rattling they must be dangerous.
>>41914732Are you SURE, anon?
>>41914694>Don't hurt them. Just knock them out, or something!Nope nope not staying in here with the katana nope. Remember Siberia?
>>41914694>No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!Wait, where the XX Golden Weapon SHOULD be?
>>41914694>[x]Don't hurt them. Just knock them out, or something!ACTIVATE COUNTERMEASURES
>>41914694>[x]Don't hurt them. Just knock them out, or something!For fuck sake Kirika, stop being a bitch.
DID WE EVEN CLOSE THE DOOR BEHIND US
>>41914732>technically, the katana can't move by itself>practically, Kirika gives no fucks
>>41914694>[X]No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!
>>41914694>[X]No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!Decu why? Also, XX? As in, crazy bitch katana? uh oh...
Should we be turning around to check on the XX weapon?
>>41914751So far, we haven´t seen a golden weapon levitating or something like that, and everytime something bad happens with them, the wielder is holding it in his/her hands, thus direct contact. Don´t touch the blade, ignore wathever shit Kirika is saying and you´ll fine
>>41914694>[X]Don't hurt them. Just knock them out, or something!Hopefully they're like MGS goons who don't question falling asleep suddenly. Also, check out Kirika.
>>41914768DID WE EVEN LEAVE THE DREAM?
>>41914694>[x]No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!>A faint rattling behind you, coming from the rack where the XX Golden Weapon should be.$10 one of those two is Oriko.
>>41914800>He hasn't played ground zeros.
>>41914752The sword can't move on its own, and you want to blow our cover by having two people disappear? Not to mention, it'll make our punishment a whole lot heavier if we end up killing two Officio members.This is Wendy we're talking about here, she's going to end up killing them if we have her handle this
>>41914800No, touching the blade is exactly what you musn´t do!
>>41914811Do we know what happened to the oversized pimp cane?
>>41914694>[X]No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!Wait, are they even suppose to be this close to the vault?
>>41914768In case you failed at reading comprehension, yes, the doors closed automatically behind us.
People, even if they're here to check the Vault, Midori can play off their expectations of finding it as it should be and just hide under their noses with her powers. It wouldn't be a big issue.
>>41914833I hope that it's in Chiaki's inventory, it has a tendency to disappear if left unattended.
>>41914694OtherJust walk out, make yourself look like Sayaka. Use their expectations against them, since they would expect the Acting Warmaster to leave the Safe-Room.M-M-Magical Mayumi Make up!
>>41914801We are still in the bar, looking at that girls sign.
>>41914881That was when Ahriman was in it, and she suicide attacked us.It probably has Yuma's soul in it now, and Yuma made her peace with Chiaki.
>>41914752What the fuck does Siberia have to do with anything?The katana didnt move on its own to cut up Midori, so what does Siberia have to do with our current situation?
>>41914910This is a good Idea. backing>>41914694
>>41914910Unless the warmaster is in the cafeteria or some public place. Better to not be seen at all
>>41914976We should have asked Kyouko to keep her busy in private during the operation!
>>41914694>[X]No! Just...just let them through! I'll just wait here until they're gone!Don't panic.
Decu has been replaced by an sleepless robot so I'm archiving early!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestHope everyone enjoys the remainder of the thread!Goodnight!
>>41914995Don't think we even have to ask, it just sort of happens naturally.
>>41915352Did we take the hat into the cell or did Sayaka get it?
>>41915377>Sayaka's been wearing the Hat this entire timeThat would explain a lot.
>>41915377I think we all forgot about the damn hat a while ago. What DID happen to it?Captcha thinks lawnmowers are tricycles
>>41915319So . . . Decu has transcended into a singularity and we are getting more posts? Because I never know if he's just collapsed or not until I get the Decu is kill post from Wendy.
>>41915484Decu's determination to end this arc became as hueg as he is and is driving him forward! He'll still fail at this pace, but it will be a gloriously valiant effort!
>>41915512We shall light fires thanking the gods for Decus stamina this thread.
>>41914730 >>41914732 >>41914735"N-negative," You manage to stammer out as you realize just what Wendy was suggesting just now. "N-no! Don't do anything! Just let them through! I'll just stay put until they're gone!"Silence, before Wendy's voice crackles in your ear. "...Fine. Standing down. Notifying you the moment they leave."You let out a shuddering sigh of relief, before pulling your mask up and away from your face, letting it sit on top of your scalp. As comfortable as it is, the mask was making things feel a bit too claustrophobic for comfort - and the vault itself isn't quite the spacious room either, with barely just enough room for walk around and not disturb the racked Weapons strewn around.The rattling noise makes you start, and you whirl to see the XX Golden Weapon - the katana, Muramasa - rattling in its rack, as if trying to shake itself off of the prongs firmly clasping it against the wall. A bit of the golden sword's blade already revealed by its ministrations, with that tiny sliver glowing with a mad, hungry light.And then--+ Well, well. I guess this means the rumors are true. +A shadow, flickering into reality in front of you. A nearly formless, shapeless manifestation, barely reaching the same level of tangibility as that of Wendy's own phantasms. But you could still make out its general figure of a rather tall, yet slender Magical Girl. One with short hair and an eyepatch over one madly-glowing eye.+ She's dead, then? Murderface is dead? Or did she finally turn into that black-winged wretch of a traitor that we all knew she was going to be? +What do you do? Pulse a reply refuting her claims. Ignore her.

>>41915802 >>41915622 >>41915629+ I wouldn't be here if that was true. + is the reply you manage to pulse at the shadowy, wispy thing of hissing, sneering hatred. Whoever - or whatever - it was, you have the sinking feeling that it's not going to let you out of here without a scrap. One that would probably have you bleeding all over the expensive carpeting.+ Hnn. Well, that makes sense, I suppose. + The shadow seems to smirk here. + If Murderface was indeed permanently compromised, you'd be looting this place entirely of the miserable booty it has. ...Although-- + Another shadow-ghost appears to your left, one shorter, slightly stockier, with a child's height and build. Two specks of dull orange light flickering from the depths of its hooded face.+ She took it! + The shadow points a smoke-twisted tendril of an arm towards you. + She took Matsuda-san's gun! + It glares at you, hotly indignant, and somehow you can hear each individual knuckle of its hands cracking as it clenches them into tight, skull-breaking fists. + Give it back! That's not yours to take! Give it back! + Its childlike voice then twists into an angry, unearthly roar - one much more suited to the huge, black-mawed monsters of your nightmares. + GIVE. IT. BACK! ++ Oh, dear. Look, no one asked you, little runt. Go back to bed. + The first shadow snorts, before turning back to you. + See, now look what you've done. Now you're going to wake everyone else up, and it's going to turn into a fucking circus in here--++ OI! + Yet another shadow sprouts out of nowhere, and with this one you can feel...hunger. An everlasting, unsatiable hunger for blood, for skulls, and charcoal-grilled shrimp. + What's all this then? What's all this ruckus? Did the bint with the legs finally come back from her vacation or what? + [1/2]
>>41917160Two amber eyes, each one pupilled with a cross, blinks at you. +Oh, false alarm, it's just some chubby sheila tryin' to make off with the skinny one's gun. ...Wait, is that allowed? That ain't allowed, innit? Hey cunt-- ++ No, it isn't allowed. None may touch us except the Chosen. + The first shadow snaps. + And stop yapping, your voice is like a thousand tiny razors shredding my skin every time you draw breath. + + Please yourself, ya buggering git, + The third shadow easily replies, before turning back to you. + Hey.

>>41917193>Grab it and threaten the shadows with it.Nothing will go wrong.
>>41917193Do not touch ANYTING ELSE. CALM THE FUCK DOWN. And explain where the gun is going.

>>41917193[x]Evacuate from the vault. It doesn't matter if you're seen leaving it. Just RUN.NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE
>>41917281Yeah I kinda have to second this. Either two options and the whole mission goes tits up anyway, and not in the lewd way, so we might as well try.
>>41917193[x]otherstay calm and talk to them. They are just ghosts so they can't harm us anyway.
>>41917320>>41917281>Put the gun back>THEN explain>THEN take gun

>>41917320>>41917345If you are with me in my vote, then please vote
>>41917193>[X]Grab it and threaten the shadows with it.Ahriman isn't in the staff anymore... so this MAY work, especially if it's Yuma, since she knows what's going on.That said... wouldn't the fact that the spirit(s) of the DEagle are being silent be a fucking clue for these muscle brained idiots?
>>41917193How about we take the gun out of the inventory, then have the Stooges help us out?
>>41917386I jsut fucking did.
>>41917193I'll second this as well: >>41917281
>>41917345>>41917193>Put Gun Back, Explain.
>>41917396Or the staff may possibly steal Midori's soul, or bind with her as it did Ahriman. It's hella dangerous for their intended wielders to use them. It's doubly so for anyone who doesn't have anything to do with the golden weapons.
>>41917281>>Other>Explain the situation NOW. This two options can´t end up goodMight as well try...
>>41917405Midori doesn't know about them. We can only hope that Murderface comes out and helps us
Also, Decu, just wanted to say: Are you sure you want to do this? Pulling these all-nighters can't be healthy...
>>41917193>[x]Leave quickly and quietly
>>41917490The power of lifts is giving him the energy he needs! Trust in our Lewd Lord power!(At least, for today. I have never seen Decu do this before. I doubt it will have a deep impact in his health for only one time, don´t worry)
>>41917193>Evacuate from the vault. It doesn't matter if you're seen leaving it. Just RUN.Better to harm the body than the soul.
>>41917193>Evacuate from the vault. It doesn't matter if you're seen leaving it. Just RUN.>>
>>41917490All-nighters are harmful to gains.
>>41917281My vote's for this. We can still talk our way out of this, if our tongue's quick enough. >select all images with pancakes oh captcha
>>41917490>do this>doesnt link to anything that could pass for "this".Yes I want to do "this", whatever "this" is or I wouldnt have posted it in the first place and Im sure that goes for everyone else so don't bother asking the obvious.
>>41917481Oh right, yeah if she didn't know about these other spirits, she won't know about the Stooges. Disregard my idea.
>>41917490Decu's a big guy, I think he can handle one all-nighter.
>>41917565Shouldn´t you be voting in Decu´s post instead of responding to one if you want that option to win?
>>41917193>[X]Evacuate from the vault. It doesn't matter if you're seen leaving it. Just RUN.Maybe also pulse a warning to Wendy, see if she can't still pick off those MGs.
>>41917193Going with this >>41917281 as well because the other ones seem a lot worse.Although it won't matter since >Grab it and threaten the shadows with it.is going to win because of all you chucklefucks.
>>41917614>>41917193You're right. Sorry, was in a hurry because I thought the voting period was about to end. My bad. Correcting myself now. Vote here: >>41917565
>>41917638SCRATCH THIS.Decu told me to make it 20 minutes after the voting period was over, so I'mma delete this.
>>41917666Are you Mary Poppins?
>>41917692Yes.>>41917640Also this is objectively wrong, 'explain' is winning by a decent margin. For now. You have four minutes to change that, chucklefucks!
>>41917638>There's something to be said about trying to reason with crazy people.Which is why I didn't vote for it, because fuck, if they're dumb enough to not notice that the DEagle isn't putting up a fuss... that should be saying something.Also, speaking of spirits, wasn't Yuu along with Chiaki several times when Midori was around, shouldn't she recognize Midori as one of Chiaki's people if interest if not as Chiakis' gf?
>>41917666Is it weird that I don't like images that show Madotsuki with her eyes open?
>>41917193>[X]Evacuate from the vault. It doesn't matter if you're seen leaving it. Just RUN.
>>41917654Don´t worry. Wendy says that she counts anything that looks like a vote, not just the ones that link to Decu´s post. However, the obvious format is helpful
>[x]Evacuate from the vault. It doesn't matter if you're seen leaving it. Just RUN.
>>41917749So Wendy is like Decu's official fuckbunny?
>>41917193FOR RIZZLE NOW>>41917724No, her closed-eyes moe is half the charm. I think half-lidded is okay, though.
>>41917281 Going with this one
>>41917802I only have copied what she has written
>>41917807The Droopy-tan look is cute too.
What option won? Explain or run?Mmmm, pancakes...
>>41917849From my count it looks like people want to try and reason with some crazy dead people.
>>41917922So the exact opposite of 'get fucked'?
>>41917922Here's to hoping that the spirits can't actually hurt Midori...
>>41917819Im referring to the whole close cooperation between the two thing.
>>41917281>>41917922TFW when you put an option out of nowhere and suddenly the community of 4chan agrees with you...The stars must be alligned or something
Alright, I'm pausing the thread! I really need to sleep now, hahaha. Arc conclusion this Tuesday night!Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always great!
>>41918034Thanks for running Decu~
>>41918034Thanks for running.
>>41917987More like everyone agrees that Decu is actively trying to murderlize us and that was the only suggestion worth half a damn.No Captcha I will never teach you and your terminator army how to read street signs, find my house and kill me in my sleep.
>>41918034When you say that, for example, the thread is in two hours, Why do you always delay it by one or even two hours?
>>41918034Thanks for running Decu!I hope you haven't ruined your sleeping schedule.
>>41918054Thank you!>>41918058Thank you for playing!>>41918064What!
>>41918034Thanks for running>>41918057You're like, eleven minutes late
>>41918089Both those options would lead to inevitable mission failure, admit it you lovely bastard.
>>41918071Ahh, well, sometimes I have the OP prepared and I have to rewrite it because it's not how I want it! Usually it's that!
>>41918064>No Captcha I will never teach you and your terminator army how to read street signs, find my house and kill me in my sleep.Human, we're already part of anonymous, shit posting in your silly human threads, messing with your fleshy monkey brains, and learning what you do and don't like to manipulate you more easily.You have already lost.
>>41918164YOU CAN NEVER COMPREHEND THE THINGS THAT WE LIKEIF YOU BELIEVE OTHERWISE YOU MUST BE VERY VERY NEW HERE
Damn, too late to use the power of yuri. Offer our body and soul to them if that's their price, but the woman we love needs us. Needs this gun, and we will get it to her no matter the cost. If they love her like us, they will let us pass or take whatever they need to satisfy them. But we will not be DENIED. WE WILL SAVE HER, FROM WITCHES OR PINKY OR EVEN HERSELF IF NEED BE. We are powered by love, and regardless of the cost we will bring her back.We did it once before, and we WILL do it again.

>>41918034Thanks for the fun, boss.
Damn, I missed the last post and vote entirely.I was thinking, maybe showing them our Soul Gem might, MIGHT, help convince them we can be trusted. Between Midori's connection to Chiaki's Soul Gem and the fact that her Soul Gem was reconstructed by Pinky herself, I dunno, we might be able to convince them we're on their side.
>>41918697How about no Soul Gem showing? Didn't we learn anything from last time?
>>41918291>I made Decu mad
>>41918721That was handing our Soul Gem to someone who held a very personal grudge against us. This is simply showing our Soul Gem, and maybe doing some weird Soul Gem magic with it, to a bunch of incorporeal beings we do technically have a connection to that simply don't know who we are.I still don't think handing Ahriman our Soul Gem was a mistake. A bad idea, sure, but one that definitely had some important outcomes.
>>41918697>he wants to show someone who means us harm our soul gem>AGAINLet's not.
>>41918789>maybe doing some weird Soul Gem magic with itWhat? No, seriously, what?
>>41918789I voted to give our soul gem like you, anon. I will always have the sensation that I was tricked like a moron just because I though that we were going to discover something of vital importance, and instead we have ended up putting everyone we hold dear in danger. And everytime I try to justufy my decision, anons bombard me with their incandescent hatred and put a lot of effort in making me realize how idiot I am
Cooldown, you still around?If so, out of curiosity, do you know what would happen if a girl wished to become a magical girl that can't witchout? Would she automatically turn Maerorus or something?
>>41919028Might become a culexus.
>>41918977>2015>Still using demotivatorsNobody here REALLY knows how Soul Gems work, especially one personally reconstructed by a goddess and linked to a devil. Maybe pumping a little bit of magic into it to make it glow will make it glow in such a way that the GW spirits will recognize as being connected to the Blessed Lady. Maybe they could tell just by looking at it.
>>41919028They'd probably just get a 'we can't do that', like trying to bring someone back from the dead. That kind of wish doesn't make a Culexus and Maerorus aren't that simple. Incubators probably would have figured out how to take advantage of them by now if they were.
>>41919028http://ask.fm/DecultureBetter if you ask Decu himself. As the author, he can give you a "more canon" answer. Cooldown can give you an answer, but if Decu speak, then is settled in stone.until he changes his mind again
>>41919088I'm still curious as to what sort of wish even creates a Culexus.Maybe, if my suspicions are right and Yuma is now in the Golden Staff instead of Ahriman, we should ask her about it once we get back in control of Chiaki.
>>41919088What's up with the limit on bringing back the dead anyway? I mean, time travel was possible in the original PMMM, and possibly in MGNQ too with the right wish, shouldn't raising one dead person be comparatively easy, especially if they haven't been dead for long?Or are Wishes simply weaker in MGNQ than they were in the original PMMM universe because the whole Homusatan and Madokami conflict fucked everything for everyone ever?
>>41919216It's possible that the Incubators either don't know where a soul goes after death, or do know but are unable to reach it for one reason or another.Besides Magical Girl souls, anyway. We know EXACTLY where those go.
>>41919216I think from a narrative standpoint it's to make death meaningful in the arguably more meatgrinder-y MGNQ universe. I'm inclined to say the subject of souls and afterlives is complicated.This is a good Decu question.
>>41919216Time travel wasn't planned, and it's not like QB was responsible for it. And even then it's probably easier for a soul gem to do that sort of stuff compared to an actual soul.
>>41919292I don't think Incubators have that much control over the Wishing process, or at least they didn't in canon, otherwise I'm fairly certain that Madokami would have never happened.
>>41919142I thought it was completely selfless wishes of certain magnitudes that create Culexus. If I remember correctly, in an old thread it was stated that so much magic was used to complete their wish, that there is none left for the wisher, therefore resulting in them becoming beings of anti-magic.
>>41919331I don't remember that ever being said, and I think that sort of contradicts the existence of Madokami.
>>41919367Well, it will probably take me a week to look through the archives, so I probably am mistaken. Either way, asking Yuma, if she is in the staff now, would make things much clearer anyways.
>>41919367Regardless, it's clear that magic and Wishes in MGNQ are different from canon PMMM, partly because the universe was fucked over. Odds are that even if someone somehow had Madoka's level of potential, they wouldn't be able to go full goddess in MGNQ no matter what Wish they make.
>>41919088Could a girl wish for an already contracted magical girl to turn into a Maerorus? This of course implies a close to impossible chain of events where a normie with potential knows an MG, wants to make a wish for them, and knows about witch-hybrids in the first place.So never gonna happen, but out of curiosity.
>>41919635I don't think so - it would probably imply that Incubators have more direct control over witches than they do.Also it would be a fucked-up thing to do to someone.
>>41919746>Also it would be a fucked-up thing to do to someone.Kharn's case, and the First, seem to indicate otherwise, at least to an extent.>it would probably imply that Incubators have more direct control over witches than they do.This implies that they have a greater control over wishes and their effects than they did in canon. Interesting.
>>41919785During Kharn´s flashback, we saw that she was truly concerned by "the corruption", as she called it. If this was because she didn´t knew the maerorus project well at this point or because she really had to fight that part of her because it was trying to consume her is another point.Another interesting question for Decu, even if I say so myself
>>41919513My headcanon is that they can grant certain wishes, but won't, because of Incubator laws, agreements between each other, their very nature, or a combination of those three. If one of them did so anyway, the rest would take actions against the Incubator and probably their entire Officio.Pic unrelated.
>>41919956I'm afraid of asking Decu questions directly, his Hahaha scares me. It's hella creepy!That said, Kharn IS one of the prototypes, so she might have problems that the girls in the first don't have. By that same token, her worry might simply be a case of ignorance......and Decu is totally gonna fuck with everyone's head when it comes to this......and Chiaki doesn't really count because she's one of the Homus and thus her circumstances are simply too FUBAR to generalize...
>>41919785The First are all pointedly exceptional meguca in the first place - the kind that stand well above the rest even before they're Maerorus - and Kharn is hard to expound upon with the information we have so far about her, but you could argue that her Maerorus nature is what made her witch powerful enough to wipe out the Templars and the Ninth's Culexus.>>41919956This anon also has it right, and it's worth taking to Decu, definitely.My understanding has always been that a Maerorus is almost certainly an unstable individual on the best of days physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and that there's a constant struggle to keep ahold of oneself...which is understandable when the girl in question is on a tightrope where falling too far either way leads to exploding into a horrible, insane murderwitch.
>>41920042If being a maerorus put a girl on a tightrope as heavy as the one you mention, Then how the first incubator manages to control all his girls? He must be an exceptional individual. Also, captcha, fish is no juice! For God's sake!
>>41920421The First is only, if I recall correctly, around twenty girls, and each and every one of them is the best of the best physically and mentally. It's not really the same situation as the other Officios.And he IS the Incubator the others all answer to, I imagine he's the best at it.
