FrustrationAngerHatredYou curse your team as long as your soul will live. Using you as a way for them to live is not a group should be. Where is the team effort? Camaraderie? All for one and one for all?BULLSHITYou screamed with what you have left in your metaphorical body as you seemingly float in this endless black abyss. You fought an abomination that your "leader" is confident to win yet when she seemingly saw that it was an impossible battle she wanted you to "distract" the beast while they would retreat one by one. You fought for hours upon hours of unwinnable battle just to save your so-called friends. And yet it was all for naught. Your last minutes was being chewed by an abomination while your screams are fall on deaf ears.They abandoned you. SHE abandoned you.But something happening. Deep within your being is pulled out from the void and into something. You follow it for what could be hours. No...time is inconsequential here as you already lost the sense of time. You don't even know how long you are floating in this dark space. Suddenly you are thrown out from a familiar place that you really know too well. Heaving then gasping for a fresh air you try to stand up only to throw out a black ichor from your mouth. Its putrid smell that you know too well.CorruptionYou steady yourself until you can stand on your own two feet. You see the destruction on the previous battlefield took place. Craters, roof holes and cracked walls adorned this abandoned warehouse the battle took place. Behind you is you weapon which is...>Sword>Bow>Staff>Write-in (what weapon)
>>3128256>Write-in (what weapon)FISTS.Well, gauntlets. HIBIKE HIBIKE MOTHERFUCKER.
>>3128301Revenge will be all the sweeter when we crush each of those traitorous harpies windpipes with our own fucking hands.
>SwordThough I'm fine with gauntlets as our weapon, I'm leaning slightly more towards using a sword.
I'll wait for more votesOh yeah before i forgot please specify what kind of sword/bow/staff you have.
>>3128343For the sword I'd prefer either a longsword or a greatsword, for the gauntlets I'd prefer it to have just been large fists but maybe the corruption added claws, or spikes on the knuckles.

>>3128301One of the thoughts I had about an unarmed specialization is that we might disarm enemies and use their weapons against them. I haven't a clue how 'corruption' works here, but if it could enable an ability like Fate/Zero Berserker's Knight of Owner, it'd be pretty kickass.
>>3128427Well i have to explain what is "corruption"Corruption is an amalgamation of negative emotion of people. These bad emotion took some kind of consciousness and became a monster your group is fighting for. If defeated they will become a pile of sludge and then sizzle into nothingness.Well long story short the more you have corruption the more powerful you are.
>>3128448Hm. So we can't physically infect other people or items with corruption or anything; it only originates from feeling like utter shit?
>>3128461yes that is correct
Sword wins so writing
You took out your Greatsword jutting from the cold concrete floor and inspect it. It is now broken beyond repair where half of the sword is gone. But something happened. You hand suddenly became a shadow and merge the broken weapon. What happened next made you smirk. The weapon you have now is back in its own splendor save from the new design that is black overall. The weapon is now longer and the handle is also slightly longer. You heft the weapon in your shoulder and jumped onto the roof hole. Currently you are in some abandoned wharf outside of the city. The night sky is eerily dark where the moon is nowhere to be seen. Dark clouds are rolling by with an occasional roar of thunder yet there is no rain. As you gaze through the city, memories came crashing down again. The happy ones, the sad ones and then the betrayal. The betrayal is so fresh in your mind your anger seethes through your being and gripping your weapon hard. You roared in anger and slammed the sword in one of the roof beams. The whole roof collapsed as every beam that is hanging to support each other broke down. You jumped down the warehouse and slammed a nearby container crate and hurled your sword like a baseball bat. The empty crate simply budged sideways and you resumed your rampage whatever to get out the anger in your system.After sometimes you have calmed down and stood up with your exhausted body from your previous actions. Now that you are back on your city, What should you do now? You have a family. Should you come back home? Although your ex-friend probably said that you are dead or missing. But if you are going to exact revenge on your ex-teammates you should not to stand out too much. Or maybe test whatever you powers right now considering you have been "revived from the dead".The night is young after all>Go to the nearby deserted convenience store and raid for clothes and food>Test your powers>Return home(and what?)>Write-in

>>3129098You need some king of staging point for your quest for revenge. You have been all over the city since you are the one doing patrols where any kind of abomination are seen. While the wharf here now is trashed beyond recognition you have several options here if you choose yourself.>Ghetto Neighborhood: at the edge of the city is a neighborhood of several people who are living in room tenements inside a building. No sane person would go here unless you are one of them. May trigger a lot of unknown factors but nothing an intimidation would solve right?>Abandoned Factory: a little ways on the wharf is an abandoned factory that was attacked previously by the black monsters you called “shadows”. No one will suspect a thing as long as no one manage to someone trail you.>Red Light District: Down at the one side of city center where you and your ex-teammates avoid like a plague because of….certain liberties but now that you are dead no one will care right? To each on their own if there something like a saying here on that place.Jumping around the area to feel your body to see how your physical movement is after floating on that void for how much long. Feeling confident that you are fast enough albeit slower from when you are at your peak (probably because you are fighting these things everyday) you stomach grumble eliciting a snarl in your part. It seems you are still human even though after you got out from that abyssal darkness.Looking for the most deserted convenience store you see a bored man manning the counter. Your sword in the back hiding in the bushes.

We should totally see if we can control monsters created by Corruption, if we can, then picking a place where monsters are most likely to spawn would be ideal.>Abandoned Factory: a little ways on the wharf is an abandoned factory that was attacked previously by the black monsters you called “shadows”. No one will suspect a thing as long as no one manage to someone trail you.A place previously attacked by them maybe has some traces of them we could follow to experiment.As for the convenience store guy>Just go in and get your stuff then get outMaybe pull our sword out as we leave and tell him not to tell anyone about us. Since him talking about us or us leaving a murder scene could both give us away. If we do kill him however, make sure to mess up the body so it looks like it was done by one of the monsters.
>>3129105>Just go in and get your stuff then get outNo need to kill innocents. Also, we don't want to start off our stay in whichever area we pick as out base of operations by being seen robbing a store. After we've gotten what we need, hightail it to somewhere on the other side of town. That said, >Ghetto Neighborhood: at the edge of the city is a neighborhood of several people who are living in room tenements inside a building. No sane person would go here unless you are one of them. May trigger a lot of unknown factors but nothing an intimidation would solve right?I'd say not intimidation. Better to find sympathy - we /are/ now homeless after being left for dead by people we once trusted after all - or even common ground if possible with the unwanted and the abandoned of society, and, in so doing, allies.

Rolled 1 (1d2)>>3129116>>3129118>>3129120>>3129126Go in and get your stuff wins but we have a tie between Ghetto and Abandoned Factory so im rolling between the two of them.
You decide that going in and get your stuff would be the best bet. And also avoid unnecessary or unwanted attention to yourself. You enter the store while you drag your sword on a cold tile floor. The man on the counter who almost dozing of is now wide awake from your stunt. You heft a small basket to yourself and fill it with ready to eat bento packs, litre of waters and some clothes to yourself specifically a hoodie. Then you smelled something sweet. You sniff it following this addicting sweet smell you can almost taste it until you arrive at the quivering man on the counter. Then you know what this sweet smell is.FearYou smiled at the man at the counter and asked him a question that he would not mind at all.“Say would you give this to a poor little girl like me right?”“B-but maam you need to pay for that.”You glared at the man which make him shriek in fear the sweet smell is now intoxicating. You wonder what it taste like if you kill this man. But you going to let him live…for now.You walk out towards the door and while the man wants to say something you turn your back and said“You see nothing you hear? Or ill decorate this store with your guts.”Fearing for his life he immediately goes at the back of the store probably to delete whatever store footage he has inside this store from where you come in. Satisfied you go to the one of the worst part of the town. Vandalized walls and shady individual lurks at every corner. No one dares to come near you because of the one big sword you lug around. There are a lot of open and abandoned space in the area because it is not viable for a normal person to live here. The place itself is crawling with low criminals, thugs and even crime syndicate which operates the city. While you didn’t bother pursuing justice on these people you sometimes deal with occasional thief or snatchers. Best to leave it to police for these criminal stuff you suppose.After searching for some place you arrive at one small building. A 5 floor apartment complex where no one lives. There are floor holes and broken concrete stairs on the building. Perfect if you want to make this you hiding place. You jump off floor by floor searching for any room that is considered liveable. You settled on the 3rd floor which surprisingly have a bed and a dirty mattress and a broken table and chair. Setting your things below you see a half broken wall mirror. Looking at yourself you have a scar that trails from your left cheek down to your neck up in between your cleavage. Your clothes is semi-tattered giving you some kind of decency. You immediately tossed your battle-riddled clothes and put on new ones.(1/2)
>>3129149Eating one of the bento packs you taste the stale like taste of a store bought item. Yet that earlier thing with that man on the convenience store taste like…candy if you have to describe its own taste. You maybe be full now but the alluring taste of fear makes your meal taste like shit unlike the one you smelled earlier from that man.Still what should you do now?>Test your powers>Find something to quench your "hunger">Write-in (plan?)

This reminds me of another quest with a similar premise, the mc lost an arm in the prologue. The execution of that one was better than this, I can't say it was good, just a little better than this one. At the start at least.At the start I thought this was a reboot or something.

So uh... How visible is this corruption to normal people? We should probably check that in a mirror.It seems like we could just go to school as normal and accuse the bitch of leaving us to die while leaving out that we're magical girls. Maybe setup some fake evidence so that investigations would show that she left us to die as bait for something or as part of a real attempt at murder?
>>3129509...technically yes. they are supposed to be a more brutal police force compared to the normal green lanterns. And i think it was at the beginning of the year when both factions joined forced for a while and it worked rather well, with one faction being the good cop and the other the bad cop.
>>3129510Or we can just stalk her and out of the corner of her eye she sees us everywhere. If she ever catches us we just make a scene in public like she's some freak harassing us.
>>3129510...can we scream that she gang raped us with the rest of her friends? I think that's as brutal as you can get without murdering someone.
>>3129537I mean, she left us to be eaten by a monster that's... worse than gang rape and is kinda murder.

Like pretend to space out when they are talking to her or not recognize them.Horror isn't a blunt tool to be swung like a jumpscare.And we don't need to ruin their lives to make them sad or angry, we want them to know fear.
>>3129565>And we don't need to ruin their lives to make them sad or angryThis is a great plus because killing them would be a mercy. They need to know that they will live a long and healthy life, with us making it as hellish as possible and being the driving force of every bad thing that happens to them. And when they decide to kill themselves? we'll save them and repeat the process again.
>>3129537That's a bit easier to disprove, gets most of the (legal) punishment on some unlucky sap instead of on her if the police don't call us on our bullshit, some other things that I forgot while typing, and wont let us (as easily) go yandere on some poor boy in the future.Plus it sounds a bit too fake to other magical girls compared to pissed off magical girl revenant avenging her murder. We (I) want something that means she's screwed even if some random group comes out of nowhere and defeats us because they realize that we were (mostly) telling the truth about her if possible.>>3129565You misunderstand. The fun part is that she can scream about us however she wants and noone will believe her. She's the mad person in the backstory of a horror movie that died warning everyone about the monster that the band of teenagers discover while looking through dusty old records.

Your whole body is coated in darkness consuming your whole being letting it do its own thing. A minute later and you are released in your cocoon of darkness and a change of wardrobe. Looking at yourself and comparing to your previous outfit which is a blue sailor outfit is now replaced with a gown like attire. In fact you are now questioning how this would be viable in case of combat. You ignore it for the time being and eye your sword which is leaning on the wall. You imagine gripping the sword as if it was there. The sword reacts and teleported instantly to your hands. Perfect.Then you felt something else. Something is very familiar to you now. Corruption.

After several sneaky roof jumps and hiding out of plain sight, you are in a U building and see the sweet sweet corruption took place.Shadowlings. Its one of those monsters you fought. Very weak but agile they will terrorize people whoever are feeling shit and now you see a boy quaking at his feet a fresh smell of piss and shaking in fear as 3 of these slowly approach this poor boy. You reach out of this feeling trying to make it something....solid? cohesive? nonetheless you want it. Siphoning it you can hear bits and thoughts of the young man,"Please save me......I don't wanna.....please....save."The Shadowlings are still standing there doing moves that would make the poor boy startle in fear.>Destroy these weaklings, save the boy>Destroy everyone.

Since corruption is explicitly not an extraneous perverting influence, but a manifestation of a person's internal negativity, I see no reason that we would act differently from how we would previously have done. Bearing in mind, of course, the differing circumstances we're now in and the one fundamental change that is a sheer hatred for the ones who betrayed us.

For information these are the girlsSachiko Yumegawa – A charismatic leader with a warm smile on her face. Blonde hair and your senior you look up to her. That was back then because one day you’ll give her the worst nightmare of her life.Rei Fukuda – The magically gifted one on your group. She can summon the 4 elements of Fire, Water, Earth and Wind magic and rain destruction to the enemies. A quiet one and probably a puppy servant with Sachiko. Would consider your friend. Not now.Mari Okada – The haughty ojou for some reason became a magical girl. Her weapon is a bow and can snipe with homing arrows as long as he can see the opponent. Only attuned with Wind magic. Great friends with Sachiko.You Mitsukoshi – Your classmate and your only friend. You go to school together and eat lunch together. You are practically inseparable. Both of you are neighbors and both of you got dragged in MG business. So much for your friend that is. Not proficient in anything as her skills are jack of all trades.Kanna Rikudo – Your kouhai. Same as your powers which draws from your being physically rather than magically (although most part of it was magical) you train her as one in case one of them aren’t available. Only fought small creatures or medium ones albeit on the back looking out for any sneaky attacks from Shadowlings.At least this is her opinion for now.

Removing her makes things much safer.How publicly are magical girls and the monsters known? The more secret everything is, the easier we can ruin their lives. eg Illusion magic to fool the cops into thinking the girls formed a bizarre drug cult, held us captive for beatings/torture for weeks, and the other dead magical girls are devil sacrifices Sachiko made before we crawl our of a mirror like a cross between Bloody Mary and Sadako to end her.
>>3130796>How pubicly are magical girls and the monsters known?As far the the public know it's only an urban legend. It's practically impossible for a normal people to notice it and only MG girls can notice a sudden spike of corruption beyond threshold levels so the only one knows is you and your friends. Anything else whenever a cop stops you, you just reason it as a cosplay or something on that line.

In fact they are pretty predictable when they are moving around with their set pattern. If a mere shadowling can outsmart you then how much when you fight your own ex-teammates? Cursing to yourself, you’re looking for some abandoned places around town. Thinking about the wharf back there gives you enough privacy to thrash around things with no one to see whoever is around. Also you don't even know what time or date it is currently so you elect to ask one along the way to the wharf.After stealing a newspaper from an unsuspecting stand you see a headlines with a date on it.DESTRUCTION ON GREENDALE FOREST RESERVE EXPLAINABLE,It's been 2 months since your disappearance. Far too long for you and your friend to look out from. No in fact if your sword was left there to stand out means they didn't came back. Thinking about it makes you angry that you crumple the paper and then rip it in two. You swear you will exact revenge in leaving you alone.Because you will be their worst nightmare.----------------------Arriving at the wharf, your previous rampage is still here with dented container crates and some small crater-like on the concrete. You find a little clearing where the place is enough for your to train your newfound powers. Thinking about it you have in your arsenal back then you have Barrier which soaks any damage for as long as the damage isn’t higher than the damage dealt but you need someone to hit you to see how is your Barrier can last. Swordbolt which drawing a shock wave from your sword to your enemy but sadly It will hit any projectile which is easily blocked if there are lot of covers to hide from and also you need targets to make this work. And lastly your masterful swordplay which you pretty much use every time to defeat the enemy. Now that you mention it, you haven’t really practicing that much due to the team effort you have.

Despite with the large lug of a sword you carry you stay light on your feet as you move around fighting one of your friends. In fact it made your blood boil and your adrenaline pumping as your stabs, slash and strikes are going faster and faster. After hours of working out and you feel like that you still need more brushing up with your skills Afternoon comes you elect to...>Continue train(what?)>Scout the girls (who?)>Search for information (what?)>Write-inMerry Christmas anons let's continue this on 26th of December i'll probably drop an update or two but we will see how it goes.

>>3131248>>3131249>>3131269>>3131320As you cooldown from all those workout and sword swinging, you relax yourself for a bit. Thinking for a moment you forgot that you have a family to return to. Even that your mother have been good to you and you have been a good daughter to her you feel obligated to know her whereabouts. Your father is already dead and you only have your mother to raise you. She must be devastated to say that you are probably missing or worse dead. You decide to look for the nearest police box or station.After navigating to the city which you almost forgot since you really don't go to city that much, you found a police station with a bulletin board where missing people and notice board for wanted people are posted. Looking at your name and maybe your face proves to be difficult as there are many papers being covered together along with some of the recent disappearance of several people. You reckon that 90% of these people are either found dead or disappeared forever. After sifting through numerous people missing you found your own name picture. Of course your mother would choose the one where you have wore your first high school uniform. Below is the contact of your mother and the address in case someone would find you. Still you could sneak home to see how it is. Or visit mother>Go home (what action?)>Scout the girls (who?)>Train a power (what?)>Write-ingonna attend a christmas party ill try to update when i have time
>>3131458>Go home (what action?)Maybe go with the plan of the anon that said to act like if nothing happened? Maybe give our mother a vague explanation of what our friends did to us.
>>3131512>Maybe go with the plan of the anon that said to act like if nothing happened? Maybe give our mother a vague explanation of what our friends did to us.That was me, and the suggestion was if barely time passed.Now we need to come up with a proper excuse.First we need to know what our mother knows about our magical-girl-ness. (Information which the QM should give us.)2(3) options really: our mother knews about us being a magical girl OR she didn't know but they told her after we were gonePresumable she would have to report us missing by law and the note is just a matter of formality for what would appear normal to anyone else who doesn't know and only sees a child missing.now if she didn't know and they didn't tell her we need to come up with an excuseEitherway I vote: Don't tell mom the truth.2 months is quite some time, some suggestions for an excuse are:say we were kidnapped (which would mean there will be a police investigation and a lot of other shit)say we don't remember (same thing as above)or say we just ran away from home out of our own free will, which i personally don't like but would be our safest bet
>>3131458>Train a power (more sword practice - we just noted that we still need to brush up)One thing I feel we need to establish is the personality of our MC, because it'll inform the nature of our revenge.For instance, if she's a rough, straightforward bruiser who doesn't care much for risks or odds, she might be liable to simply train herself up to the point where she can call our her old teammates and beat them up herself.Conversely, if she's more of the cunning tactician type, she might favor a more subtle, risk-averse approach, and attempt to subvert their reputations and relationships, and break them mentally and emotionally that way.It's notable that, as far as we know, corruption here isn't an external influence; it's the externalization of something internal within the person that's formed naturally. Our MC hasn't been turned into a mind-broken slave or had her personality drastically warped; she's the same person she was before, except just very, very angry.So her core values will still be the same. If she fought for good, she'll still fight for good - except possibly in cases where she decides the chance for revenge outweighs that principle. If she values her friends and family, she'll continue to do so. And so on.Which leads into this question: she might be angry at her erstwhile friends for wronging her personally, but does she view their actions - protecting the public from shadowlings - as fundamentally necessary? If not, she could easily settle on killing her former allies as her end goal in revenge; but if so, then she either cannot do so and will have to restrain herself to punishing them emotionally, or will have to find some way of replacing the protection they provided once they're dead.
>>3131781i can give you the answer to your one question>Did mom know we are MGNO
>>3131785Don't you mean>You don't THINK so

>>3131458Given the new info, I'll also change from >>3131512 to >scout a girl (you)She seems like the easiest to sway to our cause or if the situation permits it, kill her or drive her insane.
>>3131512Screw that. One of the targets is literally next door and should be able to sense us from at least a mile away. That seems like a bad idea.I'd personally rather check on if we are actually a living being right now, then if we're dead we've gotta break the news to her about us being dead AND our friends leaving us to die if we say anything to her at all. I'm not really keen on tormenting our mother with our corpse walking around because we didn't check for a pulse so that she can find out later after thinking she got us back, even if she does deserve to know the truth at this point. But we also don't look too far into our teens atm so we probably want our mommy anyway.

You decide to go home and see your mother. After all she doesn't deserve to be alone ever since your father died. Hopefully she is alright.-----------After jumping around the neighborhood, ducking through the alleyway and avoiding public places and running deserted places, you have arrived at your home. And what is worse is you can smell a heavy corruption in your house.Wait a minute.If You is next door she should detect this kind of corruption since your home and hers are practically neighbors.At this time, You is probably on school. You decide to investigate it further to see how is your home have so much corruption without You noticing. Going around the back of your house you peeked on one of the windows and there you see it blocked by curtains. Prying open the window which is unlocked thankfully, you slowly open the window and peeked behind the curtains. What you see shocks you very much.Your mother in her disheveled state hugging your near identical body. Her eyes felt like she didnt sleep for weeks and her eyes are very black under her eye bags. The room stinks from dirty dishes to her personal hygiene and while she is hugging the impostor you, you try to see who the fuck the one who imitates you. Then you see it's own true identity.A Shadowbane. Shadowbane are an emotionally strong negative emotion siphoning creature that feeds from several people. But to think that your mother is enough to make a Shadowbane is very alarming as they tend to toy with victims feelings to feed more negativity to empower the creature. Your mother probably fears that you may not come back along with depression of losing you.Not for long yet you need a plan.>Go inside and show yourself>Attack the Shadowbane immediately>Write-in (what?)

For your reference this is the hierarchy of the shadows according to your groupShadowlingShadowspawnShadowshadeShadowbaneShadowspectreAnything higher than Shadowspecter is a boss fight with a recurring theme of whatever the strongest negative emotion the group fights.

>>3132059>>3132065>>3132070That is your mother and you will get her back. Standing at the backdoor you try to open it but it is locked. You want to enter the window but the window is too small for you to enter as the hole of it is more or like a dog door or something along those lines. Pressing your head on the door, you try to talk to behind the door hopefully she can hear you over."Mother....can you open the back door?">Roll 1d100

>>3132280hey guess what that is your plan B
"Mother??"You can only hear her sobs getting louder as she mumbles something that is too faint for you to hear. You try to bang the door with your hand and hear her sobbing intensifies. Not having a patience and a Shadowbane to worry about you just kick the door open making the hindges broken in itself as the door flops down the floor. You mother is startled at the destruction of the door and then when she look at you..."W-who are you? what are you doing?"The Shadowbane hisses at you hugging your mother close. That bastard the moment you pry that monster is the day you will feast this creature to your satisfaction. You slowly approach to your mother dragging the big lug of a sword on your hand."How cruel mother....you replaced me with a poor imitation of me. I'm right here you know."Your mother shakes her head as she clutches the imitated body very hard."No...no...you are already dead...no she is here...in my arms. I don't want to let her go. I.....I."The Shadowbane is having the time of its life as it starts to siphon the negative emotion your mother has. Your mother complexion is now aging older and older from mental and physical exhaustion.. At this rate if this goes on, your mother will be neurotically impaired from mental trauma.Action?>Convince her to get away from that body>Pry the Shadowbane away from your mother....even if its dangerous>Write-inwill update tomorrow also Merry Christmas everyone
>>3132301>Convince her to get away from that bodyAm I dead or am I here? And if here, which? Mother, why are the missing persons notices still up if I was always here? Open your eyes. And let go.Wonder if we can persuade her that we're a hallucination brought on by her mind rejecting the falsehood she's fabricated for herself. Because if she believes that we're still around, there goes any chance at stealth or deception.
>>3132301They feed off of negative emotions? Including anger?>Perhaps it will find your rage a more enticing meal?
>>3132307supporthopefully we can
>>3132307Pretty sure that we abandoned stealth the moment we walked towards our house. As I mentioned in a previous post, they didn't even notice or care about something this strong going after our mother, so even if our mother says something, nobody is probably going to believe her.
>>3132364Makes you wonder why that's the case. Realistically, You wouldn't actually stand by doing nothing about this. She's our 'only friend' and 'practically inseparable' from us; unless she's been deceiving us for reasons unknown all this time, letting your late best friend's mother stew in magical despair when it's well within your power to take a 2 minute walk and do something about it seems extremely out of character.My suspicion is that there's more going on than we know, and You hasn't actually been home since we last saw her. Wouldn't it be something if we got ourselves all angry over our team not coming back to save us, and then found out that they all actually died trying to fight their way in to us and falling prey to an ambush?
>>3132373Or they killed her because she objected too hard and was gonna spill the beans.
>>3132301>Convince her to get away from that body.lets beging singing the lullaby she always told us before going to sleep when we were kids.>>3132307That option went away the moment we appeared and the hallucination part will crumble the moment the heat, food and water bills go up.
>>3132459Not if we elect not to stay here. If we decide that moving back in and demonstrating that our mother still holds value to us puts her at risk, or that our revenge is too important to risk blowing our cover by staying in such close proximity to You, no one need ever know that we were even here.Of course, how likely any of that is depends on what happens from here on.
>>3132307>>3132349>>3132459"Mother please...it's me. Take a look at me."You mother raised her head slightly. Although you may have a scar on your face that does not mean that your mother will not recognize your face.

She looks at you, then at the imitator, then at you again. When she look again below her face contort into fear. She screams immediately as she crawls backwards looking at the abomination she is hugging. The shadowbane stands up facing you and make a loud shriek. Not wanting to break anything inside the house you run outside. The shadowbane on the other hand has other idea as it tackled you outside at the house and crashed at the nearby wall fence. You punched the shadowbane away from you, your fist connected to its face and flow a good few meters. Standing up you face on what would be the aberration your mother has created.Standard of killing the shadow depends on ranking. Shadowlings are easily dealt with a blow from your weapon. Same with Shadowspawns. Shadowshade however needs magic or deal physical damage enough too weak to fight. Shadowbane on other hand needs constant dealing damage of positive energy or "Hope" as your group call it. Cheesy as it sounds but you are not a shining example of positive energy. In fact your enemy wants to eat you as it realizes that you are one walking big ball of corruption.Yet deep inside in your being your hunger wants it to devour it.Also the time where You would come home early which hopefully not happening.You choices are limited here.>Attack the Shadowbane enough to drive it away>Attack the Shadowbane and kill it>Attack the Shadowbane and siphon its power>Write-in

>>3132690>Write-inMaybe our mother can generate that hope energy? We should try to hold it a little bit to see if that is true. If not, just drive it off our lawn.
>>3132695Do you want dear old mum to see us devour it? Unless she cantsee us doing that, its a bad dea.
>>3132698Oh, right, maybe being a complete monster right in front of our mother would be a bad idea.Maybe you have the right idea here: >>3132696But if that doesn't work, then we bring the fight to the roof or somewhere she can't see us and devour that thing.
>>3132696Our mother is probably gonna generate an aoe bomb of that if we hug her after we're done since she'd actually have us back. Regular old everyday hopes should have nothing on parental love.It's probably way too metagamey to just bank on that happening.>>3132690>Just beat the crap out of it. Maybe roll to intimidate? If it tries to siphon us, we just siphon it back since we're stronger. No need to directly devour it.Not trying to actually scare it off but instead just be so damn pissed off at it that it realizes it needs to run away.
>>3132720Hey, its not metagaming when we also feel hope and happiness when seeing our mother.
>>3132720I don't want to just scare off the thing that chose our mother as its target. We can't let it live. I'm really in favor of killing it, whether through hope, devouring, or just stabbing it repeatedly.
>>3132745Anything we do to kill it is gonna scare our mom even more. That's the compromise I was able to think up and slowly shredding a monster to death while it (possibly) and our mom scream in broad daylight on the front lawn is just a little bit conspicuous. We are a dead girl with a greatsword beating a monster to death on the front lawn while our mom screams. That shit is going on youtube if we o that route.
>>3132816So we hug her in hopes of unleashing a hope bomb. Then if that is not enough we use the sword to cut it into ribbons.
>>3132690>Attack the Shadowbane and siphon its power
>>3132827There's a monster attacking us. That would just look schizophrenic.
>>3132827Have you considered that a hope bomb will fuck us up because... we're a creature atm?
>>3132983We feed on corruption, but seems like we arent affected by positive emotions, specially since we can produce them.
>>3132983I hadn't since it would seem out of character and incredibly stupid to jump in for a hug while in the middle of a fight. It cant hurt worse than all of that gnashing of teeth and being mauled to death by a monster for several hours did.

>>3133265So we are hurt by positive emotions?
>>3133268Let's find out shall we ;^)
>>3133277Aww shiet you motherfucker!!
>>3133265For the record, I somehow didn't expect em to be dumb enough to immediately try to weaponize it despite using bomb in my initial description.It's too far out of character for everyone involved (or at least ridiculous) to be able to use it while she's reeling in horror from a monster which was sucking on her soul and that just shoved us through a wall. anons need to learn how to read the mood.
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>3133309>We aren't taking orders from some asshole monster that was killing our mother.>Time to release the kraken and let it devour the shadowbane or at least dismember it.
You are very grateful to yourself that you trained your footwork and swordsmanship because with how limited space your backyard is, this Shadowbane is a lot of work to fight at. The creature snarls at you and start lunging while you ready your sword to block the blow. Channeling your own power to your sword to start siphoning the creature, it backs away knowing your intent. While back then it would be easy as you are just coating your sword with hope energy and stab on the creature where it hurts, this is a very tricky one as you may accidentally empower it. So much for being a dark creature of rage and revenge.The Shadowbane start charging at you as it trashes its clawed hands to scratch your body wanting that sweet sweet corruption. As for you to take any chances for any grazing cuts and let your sword siphon the creature little by little. Still this step is taking for you too long. Both of you masterfully dance around the backyard the Shadowbane jumps around to attack your blindspots while you are trying to keep up and try to hit it if the creature is too deep for it to dodge or capitalizing from its mistake. The creature shouts a loud wail that you are the only one could hear it.Then deep inside of your blackened soul, something roar in anger. It answers the call of the Shadowbane. Wanting you to do something about it.>Will you let it be?>yes (roll1d100)>no
>>3133338>noWe are no shadow. We still fight for justice. We still fight for love. We still fight for all the values we used to fight for.We've just added vengeance to the end of that list. And isn't vengeance just justice by another name?

No....DO ITYou won't give inMORE POWERHefting your sword up you lower your stance and stare at the Shadowbane. The Shadowbane undeterred stare back at you.CONSUME IT, eAt iT!! EAT EAT eat EAt EAATThe Shadowbane charges at you.SCREEEEEEEEEEClosing your eyes you think how mother raised you the best as she can. You have been a good daughter to her as to not burden her with many problems that surrounds your daily life. Your family may be small but you are happy. She is happy.A happy family.Your sword glowed white aura as the Shadowbane still charging at you. opening you eyes, you met its charge of your own. The intensity of the clash brokes the nearby glasses of your home and practically your neighbors next door. But the highlight of them all is the Shadowbane who got cocky too much is now stuck in your sword which you cut at the creature deeply. You almost forgot how easily chopping the shadows with hope. As you embedded it deeper the shadowbane wailed until it regressed into Shadowshade, then spawn and lastly shadowling. You pull out the sword out of the little pitiful creature crawling back to your house. You block the creature in front of you and stare it down."That is my mother bitch."You drive your sword down to its metaphorical head and its siphons the remaining corruption out of your sword. Breathing a sigh of relief you turn back to your house and enter to see your mother unconscious state. Brushing a strand of hair from her face you carry your mother to her room and tuck in her sleep comfortably. Her smile now returning and her face going back on its own youth rejuvenating her mental state as well as physical one.>Wait for mother to wake up>Get out of here (leave a letter?)>Explore your house...its been a while.>Write-inStill this is a lot of mess and then there is You.

Sorry but can we change You's name. Make it Yuri or something please its messing me up!
>>3133735Vague is better. it forces whatever hard-boiled detective that's stuck on desk duty who notices the letter has our real fingerprints (despite our corpse being found?) to have a reason to investigate.and cast a wider net that eventually lets em connect the dots. Just going for You only catches her and she can just not do MG stuff while the cops are watching. Being specific also makes it just look even more like the ramblings of a mother gone insane with grief and easier for the cops or anyone else to ignore.It would also backfire and make them think our mom is the killer when we start making bodies.>>3133755If you insist, then why not Yuu?
>>3133510>>3133540>>3133681"I'll go to the forest. There would be bound to some clues on it. I mean the forest won't destroy on itself you know?""That makes sense. What about you guys?"I'll pick the Wharf senpai "Kanna says as she raises her hand."I'll go to the Slums...even though i would hate it." Rei says"Then i'll pick the city. It's only fit for a noble warrior like me.""Ok Mari then i'll pick the factory. Let's go everyone."The five of you break into different direction. You transform into your MG outfit and run to the direction of the forest, jumping from building to building until you are on the outskirts of the city and into the forest. As you jump from tree branch to branch you ponder what is happening to Junko's mother. She is pretty devestated about her daughter loss and even though you try to knock on the door to call her out, she seems to lock herself on the house. Not trying to pry into her own loss out of privacy you just let it be and hopefully she recovers from this ordeal.Everyone....i know we lost Junko but it is my heavy heart to say to get over it. Lest we going to be a target of Shadows. Remember we are the only ones to destroy them. Letting them feed our despair is not an option.It still left you a bad taste in your mouth but you gotta deal with it. As you are nearing from Rei pinpointed the spike of corruption you see a wide field of razed trees and damaged tree trunks. As if some bull charged in the middle of nowhere. Closing your eyes to detect any signature of corruption feeling the waves of your surrounding like a radar, it pings somewhere near you. You try to move to where was the source of it. Brandishing your Gauntlets and alerting yourself from any shadow lurking, you slowly move. Cautiously moving your eyes all over to detect any threat until you arrive at the stone.Well its just a stone. A big rock. You are confused as to why would be a big rock would be a source of corruption. Checking all over it, it seem nothing of note as it is just a big stupid rock.Sighing it seems that Rei have a miscalculation on her part. Pinging again for one last time you still detect the corruption and it is beside you. Looking around you see something below your feet."Wait a minute...."You crouch down to see...."This is Junko Phone!!"(1/2)
"Sachiko here...everyone report?""Kanna here. Something happened here like someone fought all over the place.""Did you find enemies Kanna?""No,nothing. Just crates that are lying all around.""Mari what about you?""Nothing of note. Just killed 5 shadowlings here no big deal.""Rei?""I didn't go deep but the corruption disappeared immediately. Just a normal occurence here considering how bad the mood here.""Mitsukoshi-san what about you."You grip the phone in your hand as you dispel whatever corruption is left on this phone."Nothing. False alarm here.""Alright let's meet up again and speak what we found in details."All of you says your confirmation and move to your hangout. For once, what is happening right now? How did Junko phone appear in the middle of the forest? What is the relation of this to the destructive area that surrounds it? But for now it is best to keep it to yourself as you aren't sure what to say to the group. Questions that hopefully have answers.(2/2)
It's been a while since you have come home. Watching your mother sleep soundly makes you feel relieved. She suffered too long for her to endure. Standing up you elect to explore your home. You close your mother's room and go to your room. Opening it you see that your room is clean. Mother must be cleaning it every now and then. Although you see some dust from your desk that it must be that damnable Shadowbane took her time away from doing chores around the house. It probably hit her the most as she cleans your room hoping that you would come home one day.Shaking you head it seems that all of your things are all here. You don't have anything of note to get since most of your things are just educational materials, books, trashy novels and some tapestry You forced to plaster since according to her...>"Junko you room is so boring...no wonder no boys will come to your home. Your room is very spartan. Also why is your room all dark colored? Are you batman or something?">"Har har sorry im not girly enough to have many teddy bears and useless pillow lying around.">"Hey! you have no right to say that since you like to dive on my teddy bears. You know how its hard to place them again in right places.">"Why bother you just going to hug it and then put it back right?">"You don't understand!!"Going outside your room come down the stairs and see the mess that you and that Shadowbane made. Although breaking that door is your fault it was an emergency on your part so hopefully when your mother wakes up she would call a carpenter to fix the door. Picking up whatever litters around the floor and cleaning a little bit you see your living room is clean albeit very dark from the lack of light. You let the backdoor lean on the hinge hopefully no burglar would took advantage of the damage, even though there are no burglar on your place.With nothing to do you decide to...>Get out of here (where?)>Stay over a little bit (what?)>Write-in
>>3134198[write-in] Leave something that our mother can clearly recognize as a sign we were here (an old plushies, a drawing we made as a kid, etc) next to her but that doesn't betray our presence overtly to our former comrades and get the fuck out.
>>3134198>Stay over a little bitMaybe do a little bit of cleaning? And check that there isnt another shadowbeing hidden somewhere else.>>3134205Why not wait until she wakes up, talk to her and then leave? Otherwise she might return to her old habits and create another shadowthing.
>>3134198Backing >>3134205. Though I'd say just leaving a blanket over her might be enough.We can't risk staying long, not when we're trying to avoid detection.
>>3134218We don't want to be still there when our """friends""" return because we're in no state to fight them currently and she won't be eager to let her baby-girl she had been thinking was dead for five months go out like that. Let's spare both us and here that shittery and just leave something to her clear enough so she know we're alive and care for her but not obvious enough like a letter or message that could give her trouble or make the other B I T C H E S aware of our return.We WILL come back to her, kiss and hug her and not leave her again but we will do that when we're actually able to defend ourselves, have hatched a plan, can give her a decent explanation and won't need to go out constantly for a long time.For now, it would be just inflicting unnecessary drama and suffering to the both of us.
The police will probably arrive soon. A wall being busted open is kinda loud.
>>3134198Mostly a repeat of my previous vote. Tuck her into bed, maybe leave some soup for her to eat?High tail it out of there since we can't take on all of them at once.Level up on some corruption?Us still being able to use Hope powers is a valuable weapon. It means we can block their attacks to get rid of any weaknesses to being purified or purify ourselves lightly if we don't like whatever devouring corruption does to us.How does one become a magical girl in the first place and why is it a secret? We were supposedly dragged into it.
>>3134322>Level up on some corruption?We should try to commune with it first. I don't like the idea of unintentionally feeding something that one day might overtake our body and fuck up everything we know and love.
>>3134205>>3134218>>3134227>>3134267Going outside you see shards of glasses lying around. Not wanting to walk on these things especially mother, you clean it to the best of your ability. Some glasses are juting in between the grassy area and you individually picked up the broken glasses. After rounding the house to see no broken glasses lying around you go inside the house and try to fix her a meal. Opening the fridge you are bombarded with pungent smell of rotten meat and food. Ironically your skin siphons the disgusting smell and you immediately closed the door. Looking for an airtight bag you put the disgusting food one by one. After cleaning the food on it's content you let it open, cut the power to air the pungent smell you skin helping on it's part. You wish the smell won't last long.Speaking of smell you haven't take a bath all along. You entered the bathroom and reward yourself with a nice long soak. Or whichever is faster. After taking the bath and drying yourself off, you take your school bag and empty it's content. There you stuff a change of clothes, underwear and lastly your toothbrush and toothpaste.Ready to go, you look at the window. It's nearing sunset so you go back down the living room and opened your diary for your mom to see. Tearing a blank page, you start writing.>Dear Mom>Sorry for worrying you all this time. I haven't take a time to contact you. I know this hurts me too but there are things I have to do. As long as you HOPE for me to return. I will return home. So please be relieved for now and take it easy.>Love, Junko>P.S. If you read this letter, burn it after. If anything ask say, It's going to be fine.>P.S.S. Don't forget to smile for me, ok?Satisfied, you go to your mother's room and put the letter in front of your diary hopefully to read it's content....and burn it afterwards.........Now outside and away from your home you decide to....>(Wharf)Train>(Factory) Investigate a corruption>(Slums) Rest>Investigate(who? and what?)>Write-inA survey guys.As you noticed I separated two narrative. One has a dice and the lastest one has not. I want your opinion in these matters as I feel asking for roll in every action save from training is asking a lot. But by doing this I felt that I railroaded you to my desireable outcome. Please give me you suggestions if you enjoyed this quest for me to improve. Thank you
>>3134478>>(Slums) RestWe had a long day and we need to check upon this corruption that wants us to CONSUME.Survey thing:A combination of both is for the best. Combat and training definitely needs dice rolls, as well actions that are "complex" like finding clues. I think that everything else doesn't need a roll as long as what we are trying to do is normal, or has been drilled in our memory long enough for us to consider it second nature.
>>3134478Mari had a few summer homes nearby that are basically empty until then. Fool the security system with magic and rest there. It's the least she owes you. Alternatively, hijack her yacht and sleep in there.(Yachts are even less likely to have any random security come check up on them.)
>>3134505Seconding that one for the survey>>3134512And that one for the next course of action.
>>3134478I more or less agree with >>3134505, with the caveat that if you're going to roll for combat and what not, you need to make sure that if this is something that we theoretically can do flawlessly due to it being something like a skill that we've worked a long time at or otherwise have a great experience with, then if we roll and there's a failure, then the failure is not in the technical execution, but rather say something outside of her control happening resulting in the task not being accomplished.Furthermore, if I could offer a little bit of general critique after the state of your quest, I would recommend that you try to approve read and edit your entries just a little bit more. You're missing a lot of commas and periods in some places that would break up some run-on sentences, and overall make the act of reading flow a lot nicer.Another issue is that you tend to have what I call the 'IKEA problem', which is basically when you constantly write sentences that are some variation of 'You (do thing)', or 'You feel ________'. It's a common problem, and it's not necessarily something horrible, you just need to learn to recognize and try to rearrange your sentences so that they don't all read similarly.I know it may not have been asked of me, but I still felt it worthy of at least giving some honest critique and suggestions to improve.
>>3134512There are no near summer homes nearby Anon as they are days away from vehicle and the yacht is too much. Although I can agree on the yacht it would be hard since there are so many people in Marina private clubs which attracts visitors but I'll compromise that she has an entire building of hotel which your group enjoy every now and then.is this considered metagaming?
>>3134522Thanks for writing out. I have to admit my English is second rate due to not being my mother tounge. But I haven't fare better with my native one too.
>>3134528>is this considered metagaming?Not really, since most of it is information that our character should know.
>>3134534 I kind of wondered if that might be the case. You have a pretty able grasp of the language, it's mostly just a bit of cleanup really. I am not sure, but I think Google Docs can identify when some sentences that should have commas don't. I may be incorrect though.
>>3134537I would still stand on my point though as the meaning of summer houses is to "get away" from the place you usually visit or stayed in your life for a change of scenery. This would work if one of your friends is a ryoukan's owner daughter but I didn't write one. So sorry for this Anon.
>>3134544I'm from the city of tacos and future walled person recipient. But I appreciate your praise.
>>3134528I figured any visitors would assume the lights to the yacht being on are due to the owner checking it out for a bit. Even if we don't actually sail the seven seas with it as a ghost ship, something like hopping or flying onto it from above makes actually getting inside the ship fairly easy. People generally don't look up. The hard part would be if there are any keys we'd need to steal to get inside any of the rooms if there isn't an open window?I had actually thought about a hotel first before realizing that mooching off of the Ojou would be more appropriate.
>>3134549I think i misunderstood you. The information you gave us shouldnt coubt as metagaming because our character should already know that its not possible to use the vacations home because they are on another city. Wich i think is the point you wanted to make, i guess.
>>3134555Alright I'll accept the yacht one but be prepared from a lot of sneaking....well not really a lot of rolls but you catch my drift.
>>3134505>>3134512>>3134519Going back to the slums to rest is an ideal action right now. Too many event are taking in one place and you barely scratch the surface with your steps in your journey to revenge. As you jump from the 3rd floor to your room you crashed yourself the moment your touch your head on the hard cold mattress you have.Beggars can't be choosers after all.-------------------Police cars and policemen litter throughout the area as there was a report of glass breakers from residential area. You light your cigarette and savoring the nicotine in your mouth as the warmth of your face is illuminated on this cold dark night."Sir...we already combed the area. The left one has no sign of break-in nor any stones that were thrown. Same as the right house but the middle one has a sign of entry.""Did you talk to the tenant of the house?""Not yet sir but she is down below. You can start asking questions now.""Thanks"You walk to the house in question now the lady in question is sitting on one of her sofas. The room was clean and she was smiling offering tea to the police officer who ask questions regarding this case."Hello ma'am, I'm the detective from this city Police department can i ask you a few questions?""Of course detective. Sit down and i'll fix you a tea.""No need ma'am. It's just a few questions." Sitting down, you start your interrogation."First question, Your surname.""Kurosaki.""Ok Mrs. Kurosaki, do you see any perpetrator who illegally trespassing to your home?""No, i was on my room sleeping. When i woke up, the police is on the door asking me questions. I said It's going to be fine since i wasn't injured or something was lost or stolen.""Alright ma'am last question. Do you have a child name Junko Kurosaki?""Yes, she is still missing. I'm hoping for her to come home.""......alright ma'am thank you for your coop-""Miss Kurosaki are you alright?"A girl suddenly goes between you and hugged Mrs. Kurosaki. You clear your throat since she was here already, why not ask her some questions too."And what is your name miss?""Oh! I'm sorry. My name is You Mitsukoshi. I live on the house next door. I came here because there was a lot of police cars in front of our house.""Did you know what is happening here then?""No. I just came home from school.""Alright stay safe both of you. We will investigate on the area for a moment."Both of them nodded and made hushed conversations to themselves. Leaving them be you try to comb the area with clues."(1/2)
>>3134505>>3134512"Mrs. Kurosaki are you alright? Did someone hurt you?" "Don't worry You. It's going to be fine." "If you say so. I was worried about you everyday holing up on your house. I keep knocking on your door to see how are you doing. But i just let you be. Because..." "It's ok You. It's going to be fine. I'm ok right now. You should go to your house and rest alright? I'm going to be fine here." Nodding you stand up and wave your goodbyes to your neighbor. Hopefully she would be cheerful in the coming days. You go outside the cold breeze brushing to your body. muttering something and clutching the phone in your pocket"Junko..."......................... You woke up from the uncomfortable feeling of your hard mattress. You might as well sleep on the rock considering this thing doesn't even bounce. Thinking to yourself on moving out to....desirable location. Thinking about it, you remember Mari having a private yacht on the Marina. The place would be ideal since it was barely used anyway. >”No, no. I don’t have a swimsuit You.” >”Oh come one. You have a great body.” Mitsukoshi look at her body on the mirror of your room. “I’m so fat.” >”Oh! Come on don’t pout you have a sexy body than mine.” >”Then it's decided! Lets go and buy your first swimsuit.” >”Wait! I didn’t asked for this!” >”Nope! Mari said that we should show in our swimsuit and i will not miss this chance to have a birthday party from one of our friends. In a yacht no less! Now onwards to the bikini store!” >”Nooooooooooooooo….mother help meeeeeeee.” Shaking your head you start to collect whatever possessions you have on this room and move out to the Marina where Mari yacht will be. ………… Arriving at the Marina you see a lot of people moving in and out. On one part is a party where several partygoers are moving in and out of the bar. There is also some security person patrolling the area looking for any unwanted trespassers. Truly a place for rich people to moor their boats. Despite all of that, the yacht Mari used can be seen over here but you want to avoid unwanted attention to yourself. You hope that in the morning there are no patrolling security around the dock. Still it is better to ask for information if you are going to do this. But risking yourself to be exposed or recognized by people. >Ask for partygoers >Sneak to the yacht immediately (roll 1d100) >Write-in
>>3135085Sorry about the detective one. I have been cheeky and made something noir like to our unkown detective. I apologize for that
>>3135117>Ask for partygoers>Write-inCan we muster up some kind of disguise? Though I'm not quite on board with this whole yacht plan myself.>>3135121I didn't mind the detective's PoV in itself, but the PoV shift between >>3135085 and >>3135117 was rather jarring without your usual dashed lines. It wasn't clear until after the whole dialogue between You and our mother that the PoV was now with You instead of the detective.>>3135117>I said It's going to be fine since i wasn't injured or something was lost or stolen.>"Don't worry You. It's going to be fine." >"It's ok You. It's going to be fine. I'm ok right now. You should go to your house and rest alright? I'm going to be fine here."...Did we just mindbreak her? We did instruct her to say that line every time someone questions her, but every other sentence is a bit much. Well, whatever it is, I'm sure it's going to be fine.
>>3135117>Ask for partygoers
>>3135117>Ask for partygoersQuestion. Can we make civilian clothes out of corruption too?
>>3135142>Did we just mindbreak her?Kind of, but in a good way. She literally received the best news of her life.
>>3135167You can try one if you like
>>3135260I would very much like to. Specially since i dont remember what kimd of clothes we have right now and i'm absolutely sure that they dont belong to where we are.
>>3135272You are currently wearing your student uniform after taking a shower from your home. I think I didn't explicitly said that on a post.
>>3135273So we roll to see if we can shapeshift clothes?
>>3135260We made a mask before. We could probably make some sort of rich outfit that fits in with the area ? Look rich enough and they probably won't think we look out of place?I'm really hoping we aren't restricted to black and minor additions to our new MG outfit.Maybe some sort of fashionable mink/sable coat with the little fur hat? It's way harder to get this right in the morning instead of nighttime when we could make our outfit look like some sort of ball gown and be harder to notice while flying.
>>3135355Why not simply steal some clothes from somewhere? I'm worried an entire outfit made of corruption will draw the attention of any magical girls nearby.
>>3135362Eh. We are already carrying the corruption within us and they can find us just by feeling us. Making clothes out of corruption might make it a little bit easier for them to find us, but if they are in visual range, we fucked up long before they saw us.>>3135355I feel its right that we can only work in dark colors. It gives us an excuse to have clothing and not rely completely on the corruption; that is until we discover how to change the color of the corruption.
>>3135362Probably should have done that last night. There must be some way we can get easy money to look the part for entering the marina with super strength and magic powers. Unless we can shapeshift into a bird? (unlikely)Maybe someplace nearby has some clothes we can take? Best not to steal directly from the marina since a person might recognize their clothes.>>3135391Yeah. Being stuck with black or "evil" colour schemes seems right.
>>3135142>>3135150>>3135167roll for 1d100 for your disguise. Post picture of your desired disguise. Then i'll update which is>Ask for partygoers
Rolled 91 (1d100)>>3135481
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>3135481How are the partygoers generally dressed? I'd be awkward if we came to a consensus only to realize that it stuck out like a sore thumb.
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>3135481Yeah. They definitely are high class, but are they in beach clothes(bikinis and such) or are their clothings normal?
>>3135481I couldn't find anything on a booru search that wasn't way too lewd so I'm settling on this.I'm guessing that it should be around fall/winter right about now but if it's summer I should probably opt for something else with some sunglasses?
>>3135549I feel that that outfit is too formal for a yatch party. Maybe something like pic related but woth shades of black?
>>3135559I was initially aiming for a cheongsam but they were all short sleeve and I figured it might be too cold out. (Knowing the current season might help?)Is this better? A hat would probably be nice too.
Asking for more info about the area would be good. In fact it would give you some advantage if something is wrong. Also there are a matter of people where there are too many witness. Disguise is also an option too as blending would be easier. You try to tap on your power similar to what you did with the mask. The same thing as you spread your power through your skin coating your whole body in black aura.>58After minutes of concentrating you check yourself what kind of outfit you have made.Is this pretty risque? No no...this is embarassing. Still you can see out there that there are similar people dressed the same as you. Blushing at yourself, you go to the party.You put your things on a nearby bush to be picked up later as people and partygoers comes and goes on the Marina. There are loud music on one bar not far from here and there is one yacht ship who is holding a party. Mari yacht on the other hand is on the edge of the Marina where security guards patrol the area."Hey, girl! Wa'cha doing 'ere?"You turn around to see a blond foreigner with two of his friends walking towards you their arms on each shoulder. You reckon these 3 are pretty drunk. Well time to ask for questions."Hey!"Oh god this is embarrassing."Say girlie. Wanna hang out with us?""Uhm...say what about those guards over there?""Those black uniform dudes? Nah they're are just for show. They don't give a shit if you walk over there unless you go to one of their boats. But enough about those losers. Wanna hang out with me."Well you have your info.>Sorry, next time though>Sure >Write-in
>>3135628>Sorry, next time though
>>3135628sorry 4chan didn't upload my picture
>>3135628>Sorry, next time though>>3135653Unf.
>>3135628>Sure - why don't you show me around? I've only been here a few times before; I'd love to see more of the place from someone more experienced.Gives us an alibi if they're sober enough to keep us company, and a disguise if they're drunk enough to pass out.
Immediately changing my vote >>3135745To >>3135740
>>3135628Does being horny counts as a negative emotion? Because if they are that kind of drunk, we could try to harvest them for their dark energy without having to fight a shadowthing.>>3135740Voting for that ^.
>>3135836Horny isn't really considered a negative emotion as it is one of human basic mating instinct.Lust on the other hand....
>>3135740I'll go with it, but i'm pretty sure he's gonna try to rape us after we failed that disguise so hard. At least one of those dudes is looking to get laid and I suspect all 3 are fine with sharing right now. The whole thing seems like a hentai plot setup.Adding a ton of blushing since we don't seem like we've had a boyfriend before and >>3135117tells me this is probably the most skin we've ever shown a guy by far.
>>3135870Thats good to know.>>3135875Fair point. We should be spilling all our sphaguetti right now.>>3135628Changing from>>3135836 to>Sorry, next time though
>>3135875If they do try something untoward, I'd say we're fully justified beating them up and taking their shit or at least we might think we are. Then, just as if they'd passed out from excess inebriation, we'll actually have some physical, non-corruption-based capital to work with.
>>3135888>>3135735>>3135739>>3135745So 4 votes to>Sorry, next time though
>>3135917"Sorry next time though.""Aww already? We haven't even introduce ourselves.""It's fine I have to go anyway. See you later boys."Walking briskly away from your blushing face, you can't believe someone would call you out. Your not cute or something but maybe Mitsukoshi is right....just a little bit. Yeah a little bit.Stewing yourself inself embarrassment the guards didn't get a look at you as long as you aren't trespassing in any boats that are moored on to the docks. After minutes of walking, you cursed yourself as another obstacle obstructing you. Mari yacht can be clearly seen now but it is behind a security fence. There is also a notice sign saying...>"For Club members only. Please present an I.D. to enter."Looking around to see any spots where you can go in, hoping the guards won't be suspicious of your actions.>Roll 1d100 for sneaking to Mari boat

...wait a moment. What happened to our schoolgurl outfit? Did the corruption consume it when we changed to a bikini?
>>3135952Shhhh pretend that you transformed into your MG outfit and can be dispelled after using it.
>>3135952No time to think about that, we're playing MGS, Bikini edition.
>>3135965Oh, its a subset of a MG transformation. Cool!
>>3135930>>3135933>>3135939Looking around you see no visible guards on the area. Maybe they're patrolling on another area. Well works for you. Looking on the fence you can easily jump through it but why jump when there is a gate. Although it would be sensible if it is locked in these time......No it's not.Opening the gate and closing it you walk to Mari's yacht. The place is dark and you are confident that no one will spot you unless someone flashed you with flashlight. Still you arrive at the boat with no issues."That was easy."Good thing the door is unlocked and you are greeted with lavishly furnished room. Immediately you jumped on the fluffy bed as you sink all those fatigue that accumulated on your body. Today you are going to have a good night sleep.Anons I'll stop here for now I'll resume running on Saturday. See you next time
So, we are on the yatch; what do we do now?We steal everything that isnt bolted down? That should give us some cash and clothes.
>>3136139I'm a little bothered by the door being unlocked, but we can mask up, overpower anyone that finds us who isn't a magical girl, and simply leave. Once we wake up in the morning we should practice some magic. Learn how to harness the corruption and then erase it with hope so that we aren't ringing a metaphorical dinner bell?
>>3136171It doesnt need to be just hope in specific; that was just the weakness of the thing our mom invoked. It seems like any positive emotion can mask the corruption.
>"Mother why did father leave us.">"Junko...father didn't left us. He is inside here.">"In my chest mother?">"No dear but in your heart. As long as you don't forget him then he will never leave you."Your daughter sad face slowly turned into smile, her determined face shows.>"Ok mother...i'll never forget father. Will you never forget me too mother?">"Of course not....I will never forget you. As long as i have you then everything is going to be fine."Junko jumped at you hugging you as best as her small body can make.>"I love your mother.">"I love you too sweetie."This saturday i'll going to run since i have free time on that day. Just dropping something for you read.
>>3135995Morning comes the gentle rays of sun peeking through the glass windows and waves crashing on the boat. You slowly open your eyes and stretch your body in this comfy bed of yours.You are Junko Kurosaki and you have a mission.RevengeYesterday you returned to the mortal world and discovered that you became a big ball of corrupted human being. It's a miracle how the girls didn't even detect you. Was it because you are a former MG who runs on Hope energy? Still you can use this to your advantage as you could make ambushes easier whether it would be a shadow or your ex-teammates. You also discovered that your mother made a Shadowbane for herself due to a long time depression, loneliness and loss. Hopefully she is doing better.Standing up, to see the small pantry or kitchen to see anything you can fix for breakfast only to find.... nothing. No food stocks or anything. Although you aren't that hungry or maybe you just eat corruption for breakfast is up to debate. You wouldn't mind eating one though.Still the day is yours to choose.>What to do?>Hunt for Shadow>Steal food>Train>Investigate (who?)>Write-in
>>3139517>Hunt for shadowCan stake someone out afterwards.
>>3139559Looking for Shadow could be a good excercise. Going outside the yatch and see the sunrise in front of you. A good day for normal people perspective. Looking around to see any guards loitering around, you found no one which is a good thing. Jumping around from boat to boat until you are on the docks, you decide to move to a clear area where you can ping anything where corrupted shadow lurks.After running a little distance away to warm up, you close your eyes to see if anything worth hunting either to train yourself or to empower your arsenal.>Roll1d100 pinging for enemies
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>3139571
>>3139579I found us a feast
>>3139579Uhm...wow uhh writing i think no one can top this.
Feeling the corruption in the city is very easy because we'll...you are a living corruption yourself. But with the amount of corruption in this city that it is enough to blanket the whole city, yet humanity is a resilient one. Suppressing their negativity and actively seeking positivity in life to forget their pain. But in reality it only bides time until it cannot contain no more.Then you felt a very strong surge of corruption detected on....WaitIf you remember the exact location in your head...You immediately run to the source to confirm your doubts. After sprinting that would put an Olympian runners to shame, (and hiding from public eye) your doubts were confirmed.You are in front of Okada Estate Mansion.While you know that Mari is one of your group, what you don't know is how she became one. For some reason she popped of somewhere and grouped with you. Yet you also know that she barely come home here because she hates it and would prefer to live in one of the apartment ar the city center near the school. Was it the reason she doesn't come home?Still you have yet to find out why this place is teeming with corruption. Looking for any vantage point where no security cameras which prove fruitless as like every inch of the estate is crawling with CCTV. And there is no way this estate has servants or butlers.

>>3139644>>3139648>>3139660>>3139693>>3139746Donning your mask and your outfit You start lookin out for blindspots. Turns out to be easy as one of the section at the side of the mansion lies a maze garden. Sometimes you really wonder why rich people must have a maze garden. Pondering yourself next time when you have time to think you drop down and go to the section where thick shrubs covered the wall. You easily climed up and see the CCTV turning periodically. Timing your JP you gracefully landed on the grassy maze where you already mapped in your mind on which turn you go to. Eventually the mansion is within meters across the road. You check for signs of people from the window, then the road, the walls and behind you. All clear you immediately rushed pass to the nearest open window.Inside is a lavishly carpeted hallway complete with chandelier, painting on every pillar and walls and an occasional vase with similar flower arrangement. Feeling the corruption it immediately hit you what kind of negativity.Greed, Gluttony, Lust. Greed for money, Glutton for power and Lust of position. Easily the source in above floor. The most weirdest thing is no one is on the mansion. Like it is devoid of life. Just pure reeks of corrupted miasma.What on earth Mari didn't notice this?Still you can explore the mansion before going to the top.>Currently you are on the East wing>Explore East wing>Move and explore West wing>Go to second floor

>>3139836>Explore east wing, this place seems big enough that even if somebody does arrive home it would take a while for us to get caught. This seems like a good place to train? IDK the mechanics but it feels like it would be easier to practice manipulating corruption magic while surrounded by it? Unless it's like gunpowder and trying that causes a metaphorical explosion? Do corrupted beings get their own types of shadow magic or something like that? Maybe we can melt into shadows or be invisible while under one? (Not a vote/suggestion. Just conjecture)

Shaking your head before you ha e any second doubts of yourself you try to open door that isn't locked. At the end of the hallway is just a room with sofa on it, a fireplace and some books to read. Either this room is for servants who has any free time for themselves or for commoner guest room. Outside and skipping two doors ahead is a big library. Rows upon rows of books are being put here. Not that you are a reading type but Fukuda would have buried her head here for days trying to read everything. Outside again you skip another 2 locked doors and opening the next one which is a room with a piano in the middle. Closing the room you are in front of the main entrance where a large staircase going up and one is to West wing. Looking up the stairs you see a creepy black smokes slowly crawling on the staircases. If this was nighttime, this would be straight out from the horror film.>Explore West wing>Go to second floor

Moving up the grand staircase where corruption now at it's peak, you move cautiously looking for any signs beside youself. Touching your feet on the miasma, the mist slowly seeping onto you. You walk slowly up alerting yourself in case someone shows up.NothingWell you are in front of the massive door. Opening the door the curtains are closed. The room is dark and there lies a fat man sitting along on an executive chair facing forward on you. He looks at you with manic smile and stands up."MY QUEEN! WELCOME TO YOUR HUMBLE ABODE!"......>What?>*tilt head*>*confused Junko noises....and in extension your corruption*>Explain>Write-in

Did he just say your abode? You tilt your head sideways and he seems to be...sweating? Nevertheless you pulled yourself together and slowly walk until you are in the middle of the room."What do you mean? This place? As my abode?""Yes! To welcome you my queen.""Explain.""You see i have a dream. That a powerful shadow will spawn and lead us to cover the world in darkness. After i woke up, the dream i have is too fresh in my mind i can remember every single of it. So i tried to spread corruption all over town while biding my time hopefully my queen will notice me. Then suddenly a powerful shock came into me. The fear i felt is so glorious i can't stop shaking."He wraps his fat disgusting body as he shivers to a non-existent cold. He looks at you with fanatic adoration."You are the one I'm waiting for. Please lead us. We are at your disposal."Then several shadowlings, spawns, shades, banes and even spectre are present in this very room. All surrounded you in circle."And you are not worried this "heroes" will come here because this will alert them you know?""Not to worry my Queen. For it is coated with some kind of energy i would hate to touch."Interesting but to be honest, it's too good to be true. Cause you have enough of traitors.And hey if you are the queen that means.....>So if i say I'll kill you all, will you all die for me?>I have someone to attack...5 girls to be exact>Write-in
>>3140853>I have someone to attack...5 girls to be exactOn a side note, we need to learn more about the corruption from their own mouths. Even if we are not the queen, we are in a prime position to deal with it.
>>3140853>will you all die for me?Allow me to feed on them>I have someone to attack...5 girls to be exactnot directly though, make them feel fear>what about the original owner of the house?
>>3140853Ask to feed on one of every type of shadow being.However, instead of sending them or telling them about the other five, tell them about the magical girl whose family owns this house. It's her fault this place has stayed like this for so long. Send them after her til she either kills them all or dies. The other four can wait.We're still a magical girl, this corruption has possibly killed us and fed on our mom. We're not gonna let them prosper, but we can use them while we get revenge for those also responsible for our demise. Then once we're done killing them, we'll kill the rest of these beasts and do the job the apparently can't do.
>>3140886Anon you want to kill them all and send some shadows to attack those 5 girls?
>>3140853>I have someone to attack...5 girls to be exact
>>3140966>>3140877>>3140966>>3140886"What about the original owner of this house?""I am the owner of the house.""No, the other one.""I guess i can tell you."A shadow appears behind you and coalescence into a jet metal black chair. You sat down on it and feel it very soft and comfortable despite the appearance of it."The man formerly known as Yoshinobu Okada was mentally dead to say at least. Despite his hideous nature of being a good person outside, his habits and vices made himself drown further into oblivion. A shadow spawned from his perverted desires became so powerful it formed its own conciousness and taken over the body. What you see in me is the same person. Yet at the same time I'm not. I'm just a spiritual representation of his desires leaking out and taking over his body. No wonder it feels good to be human. Of course my queen it would be the same as you. Only little of negative emotion can take form of conciousness and take over something.""And you took over his memories?""I am still piecing it together. While his psyche is broken beyond repair, i am doing the best as i can to take it all in place. The memories i mean."You clutch you hand into a fist as you remember that hideous creature that sucks off your mother's sanity. If you didn't decide to come home then she..."My queen, do you have any requests.""....Yes i want your shadows to attack somewhere.""Point the place and it will be done.">On the city>At the school>At the public park"And give me something to eat.

Nonetheless you have a choice.>Try to siphon using sword>Eat it raw>Siphon by hand
>>3141048Let's not be too crazy too fast >attack the parkAlso, while siphoning it with our hand would probably look cool asf, I have to say >eat it rawBITE AND TEAR, GUTS AND BLOOD, TEAR AND GUT, RAAAAAAAAW!
>>3141048>At the public park>Eat it raw
>>3141048>At the public park>Eat it rawThis is... unsettleing. So either we are a shadow that completely merged with the MC, creating something new, or the shadow still hasn't taken over us yet.
Well if three votes = locked in then there's no point saying this, but personally I think eating it raw might cause us to be more genuinely corrupt than absorbing it through the sword.Like, we managed to use weaponized hope without hurting ourselves, but if we go too far into corruption we might not be able to do that anymore.
>>3141076Considering we died, likely fully shadow.
>>3141097Maybe we were only near death, and our anger in our final moments created a shadow that healed us, and that is wanting to puppet us.Remember the voice we heard as we purified the shadowbane? That might either be a new instinct part of ourselves, or our shadow trying to control us further.
>>3141103>>3141097We need to contact our "inner" shadow to see what is going on. If we are a weird gestalt, it is in our mutual interests that one doesnt consume the other because we lose the benefits of the other side and if we are a shadow, then we need to see why can we use the MGs powers when they are our anathema.
>>3141133That sounds like a pretty good idea, we should try that out once we're away from a virtual army of shadows who might prefer things to go differently.
>>3141190While i dont think they will try to stop us -they would have to be pretty stupid to deny knowing how to wield shadow and light- we could go to the yatch again and meditate or whatever there.
I'm confused, what purpose will attacking the park serve? Are we trying to draw our former friends out? Because I'm not confident we can defeat them right now with our current strength.Also, we ought to ask this guy about Mari, and why she hasn't noticed all this going on in her own house. Does she just not ever come home?
>>3141204I suppose that the attack is to test their loyalties and to see how stronger or weaker our friends have gotten.>mariIt was said in a previous post that she hated this place and now we know why.
Gah. I forgot to tab over and missed a few votes.>>3141048In the off chance my vote gets sudden support really fast. I vote for them to attack that hotel meeting place the QM mentioned we used to use. It'll creep them out that they got attacked there and sacrifice the shadows for a twofer.After that we can learn about shadow control and "confer" with our shadow half like >>3141133 said in a place not dominated by shadows.
>>3141229Maybe that should be our second target? We scout them, see when they are together and bring the whole thing down?> said in a place not dominated by shadows.But the yatch is clean. Or do you mean the slums?
>>3141239I meant the yacht. Just basically repeating for emphasis on the not let ourselves be overtaken by shadows in the stronghold of a lusty middle aged man while we are a Japanese schoolgirl.
>>3141277Then where? We jump to a random rooftop or wander to the middle of the forest again?
>>3141277One sec. We have a misunderstanding here that's probably my fault.I meant, as in don't be at the mansion when we practice the darkness control so that we don't get overtaken, so we could use a place like the yacht.
Sorry for disappearing but something came up and i need to help out. I'll update the winning choice tommorow (which is 3 hours from now anyway).>Attack the public park>Eat it raw
I'm back turns out the emergency my friends told me about was to get blitz at the nearby bar. So here is am just came home. Lemme give me a minute to sober up and writing the winning choice.
"For now I'll refer you as Okada. Have you ever gone outside?""No i haven't but before this guy lost his mind he already made preparations to work his workers in his extended absence to the pretense of health concerns. He was right though except that he didn't make it.""Then move your shadow and have it so chaos on the park.""Of course my queen."You grabbed the mashmallowy thing in your hand. You wanna try stabbing it with your sword but mother told you not to play with your food. In this case can this be considered food? Shrugging you took a bite on it. Very sweet.You ate the edges of the black pillowy corruption as you feel yourself powering little by little. The quenching hunger deep inside you satisfied. Not until you bite something hard and then an assault of bitterness spread through your mouth. You gagged and spit the unknown thing and throw the remaining in your hand."WHAT THE HELL IS THIS! WHY IS IT BITTER!""Ah apologies. It's probably that some shadows like you may hate something. After all we want to be powerful in out own way. In my case you may hate either my greed, lust or glutton. Sometimes there are... resilient people who still have morals left inside them.""Whatever...I'll check out the mansion.""I'll ready your room and everything then my queen."You walk outside the room and sighed. This is not what you expected. And there is so much of you that you don't understand. Shadows forming conciousness, powerful negativity enough to possess people, and then there is you.

Sitting alone in bed on your pink decorated room with Teddy bears placed neatly in their position and pillows that is enough to make yourself a pillow fort or two. Looking at the phone wondering if Junko is out there.You are Yuu Mitsukoshi and you will find out how...just to see her one last time.Last time you picked Junko's phone in the middle of the forest. The phone in question is covered with corruption and you dispelled using your power. Your power are really diverse although lacking in specialization, you don't mind it. Having a large array of skills can be useful and can adapt to any situation....or at least Junko will have an idea how.>Trait unlocked: BFF - When paired with Junko, Junko tries to find ways to synergize their attacks with Yuu wide array of skills. (Unusable)Steeling yourself you channel your energy hoping to find clues. Clues that maybe, just maybe. Junko has returned. No matter how hopeless it is. Clasping your hand onto the phone, your white hand glows and summons a white wisp. The wisp circling on your head and then shoots outside your window."Wait for me!"You run downstairs to see where the wisp go. After hastily putting shoes on your feet you opened the front door to your house to see the wisp waiting in the middle of the road. Then it shoots again, this time..."On Junko's home?"Following the wisp movement you arrive at the backyard. It seems nothing here but the wisp keep circling around the spot."Did i mess up somehow? I think Rei would be better at this thing."The wisp disappeared which signals that the search is over. Skeptical at the results you look around to see nothing of note. Maybe because the two of you keep hanging in here?Seems it would be hard looking for clues. Counting your losses you return to your home waiting for your family to come home.

something to ponder guys but what if we are the Shadows that Junko influences? Does that mean we could be the hope that would save Junko? I mean the hints are all over on this thread.
>>3144564We are no "Hope". The time has past for such childish delusions.No, what we are is cold, unwavering DETERMINATION.
>>3144564Going by OP's comments in >>3128448 and >>3128477, Shadows are just extreme imbalances in a person's emotional state, manifested externally because magic. Just as a person can be consumed by anger, or grief, or greed and become incapable of functioning normally in real life, so can a person be consumed by Shadow. It's generated internally; people aren't infected with it.The Shadow within Junko is, quite probably, also a part of herself.But here's the thing. Excessive joy and contentment can also render a person incapable of (or rather disinclined towards) acting. Excessive optimism and hope can see a man watch the world collapse around him without a worry. While too much negative emotions can lead people into ruin, so can too positive ones.Conversely, without ambition, pride or envy, men would have no drive for self-improvement. Without sorrow or anger, men may find themselves unwilling to defend themselves and those close to them. Some amount of these so-called 'negative' emotions is necessary for people to live - as negative reinforcement.So - is Hope truly better than Shadow? Probably, that's how most magical girl shows work.

You already knew where she lives so it's easy to navigate along with the darkness of the night. Going outside the front door of the manor, you see the vast front garden that would stretch for a good hundred meters maybe two. You stretch your body and start running where Mari Okada resides......45 minutes later you are already at the rooftop overlooking at the penthouse Mari live. The team and you always come here after a good fight celebrating your victoy and share your exploit.

You stand watch as Mari lights come off one by one until her room remains. After waiting for another hour the lights are out in Mari's room. You waited for a solid hour just to make sure and go to the rooftop.The thing about Mari is she has a habit of not locking doors. With how many time Yuu stumble in different embarrassing situation is beyond you. Even times that you are also a victim of her shinenigans yet you just slowly close the door and stare at her passively while she stews in embarrassment. Turning the knob the door opened and you walk inside looking for whatever clues she may be hiding.You left the door slightly ajar in case of emergency and go down a floor. The living room is very spacious where your party always held. Seems the living room is clean at the moment. Going inside the kitchen is a lot of plates stacking up in the sink. Pans are still on the stove and some plastic are on the table. Seems she didn't bother cleaning after she ate.Now there are only 2 rooms left. One is her bedroom and one is guestroom. Maybe snooping inside Mari bedroom would be beneficial as she probably keep a journal.

So to clear up.You want to read your death, then steal the journal and replace it with a shadow version and write on it by copying her handwriting then displace any movable furniture by an inch.Is that all?
>>3144916Flipping two months earlier curious to see if she wrote something. When you got on the date it was blank. You see the next page which she wrote back 3 days after your demise.>Sun 6/3>I feel bad. That was my idea to run away. Maybe if i listened to Yuu she could have something to plan at. Junko and Yuu are great partners yet we can't afford to lose You because of her versatility. Reid can't hold out on her own because she was injured in the first attack and Sachiko is breathing ragged from exhaustion. To be honest i admire Junko. She refuses to go down yet i can't....[scratch scratch]. Yuu was the one most hit by this as she frantically search for Junko for two weeks. We even have to closely monitor her as she spawned a numerous Shadowshades. Sachiko was right. If we fall to despair, the shadows will congregate and then eat your mind away. Sachiko on the other hand, was very emotionless on this affairs. She probably kept it herself knowingly not to show weakness to us. Yuu show us the hard way. Am i a bad person? Does that mean i don't care about her? I even suggest to Sachiko to mindwipe Yuu the loss of Junko only to replace the guilt of not having saving her. We always use this to people to weaken the shadow as long as we saw the source. It was better for her to wallow in despair forever. That is why from now on. I'll look for shadows prowling alone for the night and train my bow to strike true. Forgive me Junko.The anger in your being wells again but you preservere. Things to do to set in stone. Closing the note you create a similar one with a side of corruption. It will seep corruption onto the skin of the user to empower her highest negative emotion. Then you write below onto the present one.>I had a nightmare today. I stood in my room and watched someone else sleep in my bed. She looked like me but I know it wasn't.Satisfied you put the things the way it was and get out. But you haven't had your fun. Suddenly a brilliant plan (or prank) sprang on your head. You try to move the table a little ways. You move the things that are movable. Even in the bathroom. The only thing that wasn't moved was anything bolted and Mari's bed as it would probably wake her up. Moving outside the rooftop you can see little rays of sunrise. Once you come back to the mansion, you are going to check out all of these written inside.>And that is all for today. I'm not gonna run this New year's Eve and New year so see you on Jan. 2 and make a new one. Happy New Year anons. Also is there a way to save this thread? Would appreciate it.
>>3144939Damn my sleepyness shows and too much mistakes on this. I'll probably clean it tomorrow after i get my sleep.
>>3144943Happy New Year dude
>>3144939>or prankno, it's seriously unsettlingyou pump into every table or flowerpot, your toothbrush is just too far to the right than you normally place it, ...It all weirds you seriously out, you should totally do that to your friends when you have the opportunity.
>>3144951I'm not sure anyone would even notice
Rolled 87 (1d100)>>3144939So magical girls can mindwipe? Seems to me like we should have started editing memories.
>>3144978Turn their families against them?Also can we check to see if we've been mind wiped?
>>3144978Only afflicted by shadow strong enough to make one. It doesn't work to a random people.
>>3144986It explains how Mari completely fails to notice everything in her house even with whatever stealth barrier they deploy.
Perhaps we could use the shadows to eventually consume Mari so we could replace her and get close to the others?
>>3144943Happy new year. We will archive this thread on sup tg as soon as you make a new one. It's a good quest.
YFW when you noticed the setting going full madoka but the character isn't bright enough to realize it yet.I feel like we really need to get a better handle on these shadow powers. The shadowdudes are trying to manipulate us, but they aren't all that competent since their goal/plan involves 100% corrupting us when being able to defend ourselves against the main threat (magical girls) is actually an inherent advantage if maintained in a strong body.
>>3145344I see both the shadows and magical girls as threats, though Junko seems to see things differently.I'm not sure why she suddenly became so accepting of shadows, or why she decided to pull this rather pointless and petty prank on Mari. Is this the form our revenge takes? Her characterization is slipping away from me.
>>3145351It's a bit weird. I'm assuming the marshmallow did it since it added to our corruption.I can sort of get the idea behind the prank but it lacks pizazz. No disembodied horse heads, no writing "You told them to let me die" written everywhere in blood, no (i'm probably gonna try to vote for us to get practice to be able to do this since it's probably too late atm) using our shadow powers to give her nightmares about our death where we're doing a monologue about how much it hurts. I figured we were either about to smother her with a pillow or start driving her insane like in a horror movie. Instead we acted slightly mischievous. Were we so pure that this is what we end up with even in a corrupted form?
>>3145351And with the shadows i'm assuming that we planned to let them die against the girls as disposable pawns to wear em down or kill em ourselves once we finish off our old team. Then we fucked up somewhere and let em loose in the park instead of aiming towards the school.
>>3145351I would say that it's not so much that Junko doesn't see the shadows as a threat, it's just that she's completely in over her heels about what to do currently.Keep in mind that she's just been killed, resurrected as what she spent considerable amount of time slaughtering and that not only did her friends apparently not give much of a shit as they left her to die in the first place by abandoning her while she fought some rear guard action, they didn't take the slightest care of her mother after she was gone, to the point that she created a fucking shadow monster herself.While it's probably all confused in her head, Junko REALLY has reasons to be angry about the situation and to hate her old """friends""".Moreover, it seems from what we've seen so far that the only reason she's even alive to begin with is her anger at the betrayal meaning that more likely than not, being angry is now a condition sine qua none to her very existence.Despite all that, however, she still can't bring herself to "knife the bitch" in her sleep like the shadow is pushing her to but react by doing a very teenage thing, an actually mean spirited prank aimed to cause emotional distress.She might be possessed or fused with something that require her to be angry but she's still very human at heart as she can't jump that thing and kill a(n ex-) friend yet no matter how much she wants to hurt her.I'd say that it's a good characterization for that reason, tho desu, it's indeed a little all over the place.
>>3145395>it's indeed a little all over the place.To say the least. She went from being unwilling to murder a store clerk and straight-up saving a guy's life from a shadow, to willingly parleying with those same shadows and having them commit random acts of terrorism on a park, to pranking one of the people she's supposed to have an all-consuming grudge against.I wouldn't have as much of a problem if we stuck to one type of characterization, but as it is, I'm having difficulty figuring out how to vote in such a way that would be in-character. Not to say that we can't be intensely bipolar as part of the whole fighting-off-corruption deal, but then you'd imagine Mari would be dead by now, not mildly discomfited.>>3145368I had assumed it was a calculated move to draw our former teammates out with that attack, but then we went and didn't follow up on it at all, which makes it now just seem like a random act of cruelty.
I mean, we also gave Mari a corrupted copy of her diary to slowly increase her negative emotions, so that was pretty bad. It does seem Junko is still torn up on how to actually go about hurting her allies, and what exactly it entails. Does she want to kill them, or merely psychologically torture them for a bit? All she has now is a lot of anger that half the time we've been having her actively fight against instead of letting consume her.If she doesn't need the corruption to live anymore it might actually be possible to have her turn back to normal at some point late in the game. She'll have to actually confront her former friends though for that to happen.I'm against her going full queen of darkness, but don't mind her using shadows to her advantage as disposable pawns, with the expectation of them dying either by the hands of her former friends or her own. The random attack that happened in the park was not quite what I expected either. Should we have Junko lash out at her minions for going off script, or at least tighten the reigns a bit? No killing people beyond the magical girls, but they can still increase the corruption in people? Thus far we've mostly been gathering information, struggling to still be a good magical girl while plotting our revenge, and having some bizarre mental hang ups against actually confronting our friends or severely hurting them.
>>3145510I'm personally looking at it as "a thin line between love and hate" which is why I find the machinations of the shadows so counterproductive. Our corruption is so strong specifically because of how strong our love for our teammates was. The more we care(d) the more it hurts and the stronger our corruption/shadow is. The other dudes have boring normal corruption. We got one that's actually enhanced by still having a good side or at least understanding we had a good side.
"Urg...my head hurts."Waking up with an aching body is a normal thing for me. I wasn't fit for any extra physical exertion. When i was young i only have servants to ask what i want and they will deliver it to me. Once i was out of that manor because i hated one thing.Money.My parents are not really the rich ones. My uncle is. Both of my parents are employed under my uncle. My uncle gave me a lot of things. And the things that i didn't really want. I only realized it when i go to middle school. I only have friends because i have money. That when i ask for something, they want something in return. When i didn't gave any, they all disappear. Once in my life i knew that if i want to make an effort to be noticed without my uncle's money then I'll stay away from money as much as possible. But it was a habit that is hard to break. I'm slowly making progress as i make myself limit to the most minimal comforts of life.Going inside the bathroom i rub any eyedust that was on my face. Washing my face i reach for my toothbrush and brushed my teeth. Satisfied i go to my kitchen and fix myself for breakfast. I'll probably hire a cleaner to clean the house. Looking at the clock i realized I'm almost out of time. Munching everything on my mouth i immediately change to my school uniform and go outside as another school day and hopefully a peaceful one.But for some reason it felt something wrong within my room. Best not to think about it. I have too many things to worry about.
>>3145425>She went from being unwilling to murder a store clerk and straight-up saving a guy's life from a shadow, to willingly parleying with those same shadows and having them commit random acts of terrorism on a park, to pranking one of the people she's supposed to have an all-consuming grudge against.thats because SHE LIVES IN A SOCIETY. or some bullshit like that.but honestly, i agree with >>3145395 and add that even though we are a very perturbed teenager...thing, we are still a teenager and focus more on the single task ahead rather than for example, try to kill the bitch in her sleep(we also don't have total control of our powers, so there is a decent chance that whatshername survives, escapes and alerts the others).
Happy New year everyone. Hope to have another successful year to all of us. I'll give another special involving Junko. Also I'll make a thread sometime this evening or tomorrow morning. Whichever comes first.
You are Junko Kurosaki. 6th Grade Elementary. At the young age your father died from an illness and you have been a subject of bullying. Specifically where they tease you that your father left you because you are a bad girl. Although your elementary days were a struggle from their endless teasing, one day you did the unthinkable. While you are minding yourself playing on a swing alone, a group of boys kicked you on the back throwing you off the swing. What is worse was your head was hit on a concrete edge of the swingbox. Standing yourself with a small cut in your head while they are laughing you grab a nearby rock and hit the boy.Over and over again.Nonetheless you were called from the principal's office but the parents of the boy wanted a compensation for the incident.The next morning all of the students gave you a wide berth. No one dares come closer to you not anyone try to bully you. You haven't even heard the one who kicked you on the back. Regardless it was lonely.Come middle school, the rumors of your doing in elementary spread on your school. No one really dares come to you.Except her.One school lunch came, you sit on one of the corners of the room when a girl approached you."Hi! I'm Yuu Mitsukoshi. What's yours? Oh yeah can i sit here?"Nodding Yuu immediately go to your side and sat beside you. To be honest the seat in front of you is free."Why are you alone by the way. You should make friends you know.""No one would be willing to be friends with the demon anyway.""Demons? You are human to me. Demons have long ears and a horns and tails and has long nails and tongue and and purple skin! So you are definitely human to me. Wanna be friends?"For the first time in genuinely laugh. At first it was a smirk then a giggle then a loud laugh. I think most of the students heard my laugh as creepy and evil. But that time i found my first friend."Why...""Hmm?""Why would you like to be friends with me?""Hmm...you see i need a big strong minion like me to conquer the world. I mean you already established yourself as a demon queen then you need a general...like me.""......""Ok ok stop pouting geez. To be honest, i don't have an idea. I just wanna be friends with you. I feel like you are destined to be my friend together forever.""Together forever?""Yeah! Together forever and ever."Nodding it was a start of a wonderful relationship for the days to come. Until that fateful day...
>>3146669>met I middle schoolI thought they were neighbors
>>3147247probably they didn't met until school and then Yuu's parents changed houses.
>>3147247Yes they are neighbor but at that time Junko is a very sheltered person who holes up in her house afaid of being bullied again. So i am not surprised if she didn't know her neighbor not until later. Also if you noticed they both not attending on the same elementary school which would make Yuu a stranger.
To be honest i could tackle more about our MC childhood but i would leave it as it is for now afraid that at one point i would make a contadictory behavior. But hey a teenager who keeps on herself make a hell a lot of piling emotion waiting to burst i mean what could go wrong right guys? ;^)
>>3147247Not next door ones, and children in elementary school don't go very far unless they have a bike.I actually had a friend that I didn't realize lived at the bottom of the hill for most of Middle/high school because my "territory" that I explored would stop just before his street. I went in every other direction except the one he was in.
>>3148377i have a similar story and never "ventured" beyond the 3 or 4 houses next to mine. Basically i only knew at best about 1/3 of the street i lived on.
So, corruptor is dead?
>>3152503Seems like it.
So...actual question. What's the general accepted timeframe for hijacking/commandeering a quest? This reminds me of that other Dark Magical Girl quest and both of them were interested and just kinda...died. Hoping someone manages to make one and sticks with it.
>>3152779Nothing stops you from making a new quest with the same theme. But if you want to hijack an specific thread, i'd say that a week of radio silence from OP should be enough for someone to take over the thread.
>>3153485Sorry for the silence but i was taken to the hospital from severe dehydration. It would take me 3-5 days to recover (or at least the doctor said so) so rest assured I'm fine.P.S Gastroenteritis is a fucking bitch to start my year
