Going back to the mansion, you unceremoniously kicked the door open and the fat guy waits on the entrance."Productive night perhaps my queen?""Shut it.""The room is ready by the way so feel free to use it."You ignore his speech and a shadow pointed on your designated room. You kick the shadow out of the way and opened the door. It was a very large room to be honest. The decorations is...full of eyes. Already creeping out from this bad choice of wallpaper you muttered enough to be heard around the room."After i count to 5 get out of here or I'll cut your eyes one by one...5"The shadow start scrambling away from you"4..."Some have difficulty getting out."3.."Almost half of them are out."2..."Just a little bit more."1..."Some are still left."0.."A single shadow pings it's claws on the windows.

>>3156827>>3156830Sitting on the nearby fancy wooden study table and a comfortable leather chair you open the journal for interesting happening. Although the only thing you are interested is from the day after your demise. Upon looking at it, the pattern of writing everyday sometimes skips for a day or two sometimes 3 and up to a week. Reckon you don't want to write a journal on examination day if the next day was any indication. While flipping page after page you stumble on one of entry concerning Kanna Rikudo.>9/28>We we're testing Kanna her defensive power since we lost a great defender in our fold.

You curse yourself from drowsiness that taken you.......You wake up the sunset is going down slowly. You already have rested albeit a forced one.

That works out well since( I think )myself and other anons were thinking to use the MG/hope abilities defensively in order to offset the fact that we should also be weak to them.It basically eliminates our type weakness.
>>3157659You should have known better than to be a menace to magical girl society while not drinking your juice in the hood.
>>3157178>See Okada>>3157660 seconding suggestion after hearing him out. Ask about specifics of how the shadows operate. We know about how they spawn, their hierarchy, what kills them, and their end goal but what about stuff like setting barriers and the how negative emotions work as a resource. If we are the queen of darkness we need to know how our “army” works.Just caught up with the quest.

>>3158610>Seek out the PlaugeDude's trying to corrupt us as if that isn't blatantly obvious and "natural" plague's aren't the super scary thing they used to be thanks to quarantines and modern medical knowledge.We could fake a terror attack via making the "terrorist" (probably some local rapist or criminal type we'd dislike) accidentally die from his own super plague. The threat of the plague is better than the actual spread of the plague. Especially if the government can't track where it came from in the first place, had no clue it was even planned with all of their intelligence, and was only stopped by one guy's incompetence.
>>3158623>>3158626>>3158631"I'll seek out the plauge. Be right back.""As your wish my queen."Going outside the room and then the manor you jump your way out and into the factory. Currently it's night time and the city lights are shining each other that illuminates the loud commercials and promos. Yet moving onto the factory which is very far away from the city is an abandoned complex where a terrible accident happened. Stopping at the top of the tower you ping the surrounding area to see where this plauge hiding on itself. It would be easier considering you have information about it.>roll1d100-10

Yeah! a non natural 1!
Summoning the shadowlings which you don't have any chance to use one, it slowly risesfrom their shadows until they numbered to 10. Seems to be your limit. Commanding your shadows to attack that big giant sludge, they released an ear piercing shriek to the monster. Sadly you are not immune by it as you cover your poor virgin ears. As your hearing slowly comes back, your shadowlings are busy attacking and dodging the big pile of sludge. It's groan release a putrid smell that would be indescribable. Distancing away from you and the boss you start siphoning whatever corruptive properties it has. And it keeps going and going and going until the sludge noticed it's size is lesser that what it could be. The beast roar in anger and you just smugly smile at yourself. Then suddenly the boss pump himself and a circular bullet is now hitting all around the boss. And it's too fast!>Dodge>Run to cover> Barrier?>Write-inRoll 1d100 for choices you pick

>>3161080Thanks for the run.
>>3160982>>3160985>>3161009You just unceremoniously flop yourself on the queen size bed Okada provides you. In fact this is the first time you slept something more soft than Mari's yatch. Speaking of Mari's yatch you forgot that you left your bag on the boat. Oh well maybe tomorrow for now you sleep........Morning comes and you wake up. You do your daily ritual of soaking in the lavender scented bath (fucking rich guys) lines upon lines of health care and skin product which you majority ignore. You have a fair beautiful natural skin damn it! Anyway you don't mind going to buy an expensive conditioner for your hair which is already supplied. You splattered it within your hair and massage your scalp throughly then you let it sit for a minute before rinsing your whole body. After another round of your daily hygiene. You are ready your costume already forming itself in your body. Maybe you won't need clothes at all. Ok maybe except for disguise but that is for another time. The fat man didn't call for you so you have free reign today.>Go outside (where?)>Investigate (who?)>Train (what?)>Write-in
>>3162267>Go outsideTo the yatch to regain our bag. Also lets tell Okada to tell the men that we (under another identity) are going for it.
>>3162491Okada does not know your other identity for all he knew is you are the QUEEN.
>>3162491Oh you mean to let us pass the yacht sorry ignore me.
>>3162267Ask Okada for any ideas on how to deal with Mari. Perhaps a way for Junko being able to disguise herself as Mari afterwards as well?
>>3162267Seconding >>3162491we should avoid leaving stuff around that could lead back to us.
>>3163021He might have a tiny lingering piece of humanity that could start back up if he realizes we're gonna kill his niece that he liked to spoil ala Darth Vader. The dude does care about family somewhere in that blackened heart of his or Mari's parents would have never been employed as the first choice.The yacht talk actually gives me an idea. Depending upon how the city is shaped, we could get around faster if we used one instead of walking or using some free public transport for students ordinance.There doesn't seem to be any flight so far for magical girls either, so we could easily escape on the boat and sail away dramatically if they're trying to chase after the "Dark Queen"?
Just to be sure.Get the bag with a disposable name, ask for Okada memories about Mari then find her and kill her.Is that right?
>>3163185lets leave the "find her and kill her" for a little bit later. we don't have a plan of attack yet
>>3163185We fucked around too much to immediately kill her without being crazier than we already are. We should probably brainstorm some ways to make her life worse to torment her now that we know she's the one that had the idea in the first place. She needs to suffer and when she finally despairs we absorb her darkness as a powerup. That gives me an idea I had in the last thread since I can try to vote for it now.>>3162267Ask if there are any shadow powers that can manipulate dreams and where I can hunt to absorb them like we did that plague.
>>3163185We should not kill her yet. We need to work on making her go mad. >>3163203 has a pretty good idea with the nightmare thing.
Shouting at nothing hopefully Okada hears it. No he will hear it."Okada! I have stuff at your stupid yacht club. Give me something like identification card or something.""Come to my office I'll have it ready."Walking to office you think if this fat man have any memories with Mari. Best to ask him."Hey i have a question. Spit of what you have remember about Mari.""I haven't met the girl in person. Or more likely her parents doesn't want me to meet her up. Although i have seen in one or two but she was just a little girl back then. As for her magical powers, you already know. Your teammates aren't you?""EX! Ex-teammates""Sorry ex-teammates. If you want i could arrange a suitable Meetup for both of you if you like?""I'll give my answer after i get my staff back.""Wait, catch."Okada tosses you a card with your face on it. You pockets it and decided to go to the docks. Jumping around the town avoiding anything that would caught you on sight is difficult near the dock area as the building goes lower and lower until you decide to just jump off the nearest alleyway and disguise yourself a black sundress and a black strawhat with glasses. You entered the gate and show the I.D. and they let you in unceremoniously. Going to the yacht your stuff are still there so you gather what is yours and get out.....Going back to the mansion, you drop off your things to your room. You then lie in bed thinking if you want to go with Okada plan or not.>Call Okada to call Mari in (where?)>Train (what?)>Go outside (where?)>Write-in
Didn't post earlier I taken some medicine and it made me sleepy so here is the updateoh God please let the pain go away
I'm a little unsure to handle Yuu atm.The diary entry might give a bunch of leeway for us to think Yuu got tricked into it and they erased her memory afterwards.Then when we finally get revealed to the MGs that have survived this long we can dramatically read the diary entry to sow discord and offer Yuu a place back at our side. (or just leave it on her desk with a bookmark)Then when she refuses or tries to purify us we get another boss form power up from added despair.
>>3163449>Go outsideTo our room to read the rest of the of the diary and plan how to kill mari. Also to see of the shadowling we left has made some progress? i don't know if we can telepathically speak with it.
>>3163498i don't like what i;m going to say, but what if we slowly corrupt her? just like the plague shadow we fought that made people sick, we could try to hid in her house a similar shadowling that makes her want revenge.
>>3163507If corrupting her was something we'd do, there would be a very small jump to our mother from what I gathered about how close we were. I don't see that happening at all which rules out corrupting Yuu too. I think Yuu not being corrupted at all adds the most dramatic sting to it. No random teammates purifying her out of her alignment. I want her disappointment, shock, and horror in them for what they've done to be 100% real.Maybe all of that other stuff foreshadowed that i've been ignoring to stay (what I think is) in character could change that view, but for now that's my analysis/wish from the information we do have.
>>3163523>there would be a very small jump to our mother from what I gathered about how close we were. But we can control where the shadows stay and now that our mother is happy again, they shouldn't be able to touch her.>I think Yuu not being corrupted at all adds the most dramatic sting to itThe thing is that i don't wanna fight her(because we the players know that she is innocent) and i don't see a clear way to remove her from the playing field or have her join our side.>>3163451Take it easy man, we can wait for your full recovery. I know this means jackshit but i'm rooting for your recovery.
>>3163573I meant emotionally speaking instead of physically. If there was a list of people we'd be least likely to corrupt, Yuu would be a solid #2 IF we interpret the diary entry to mean Yuu had no part in the betrayal. Hope was the final thing in Pandora's box because it was considered one of the evils/curses. The Greeks saw hope as merely the route to prolonged misery instead of a positive emotion.We pick off the other girls and do the siphon their corruption thing we look like we're planning for Mari, get more powerful, and by the time it's time to reveal ourselves or they figured out they're being hunted we can do the standard evil join me speech while revealing what the "heroes" have done.And because we're so corrupted we might not be able to objectively judge that/if we've gone way past the line for her.This is speaking from a Junko POVFrom a Meta POV. There are no breaks on the suffering train. Not fighting Yuu is gonna be the least of everyone's worries when Junko finally notices all of the implications of that diary entry.
>>3163451Hope you feel better QM.>>3163498I agree Yuu's hands are clean in this whole matter and hopefully the journal can give us an in to bringing her over or at least keeping her out of our revenge.As for general strategy, we are currently best served by striking from the shadows and taking a psychological approach to our attacks. We almost got owned by a shadowbane and while we took the plague out pretty easily, Okada told us that it was weak.The last thing we need to do is tip off the girls that we are alive and corrupted. As for a general game plan we know that Sachiko is the leader and Rei and Mari suport her. We need to find out more about Sachiko. If we can undermine her leadership or take her out we can split the girls up. Secondly we know that our former friends have been dabbling with mind wiping people. This could open up a way to split off Yuu and Mari. Yuu is easy, we have evidence in the journal. All we need to do is plant it in her home and find our phone there. We can then use our old phone to contact her as a mysterious friend. Let her know that we are looking out for her and put the seeds of doubt in her head about the other girls. What if wiping her mind was not just about preventing shadows from spawning? What if the girls were using her? What if she knew too much? The fact that magical girls have the power to wipe minds is incriminating enough and should keep her quiet. As for Mari, I think we are best served by driving her crazy as I stated earlier in the thread. We already left her with a little spoopy surprise and the shadow journal entry. What if we keep going with the whole "there is another me" thing. Ramp up the nightmares. Disguise our-self as her and start doing things that Mari would find distasteful and would definitely find out about. Pull a Perfect Blue type scenario and over time make her loose her sense of reality. We could pin it on mind wiping. and point her back to her friend Sachiko and undermine the leadership of the group. We could possibly turn her given enough time or at the very least get her to off herself and possibly others in the lead up. If we are going to physically confront anyone it would be Kanna. She is green and mostly a defensive magical girl. Her death could open up the wounds left by our untimely demise and sow despair in the girls. It seems that Mari and Rei are training her so i'm not sure how realistic it is to get her alone at the present moment. so in my mind our priorities look like this:1.) Scout out Sachiko. Her decisions led to our death. Find out what she may be hiding and if she has any skeletons in her closet, anything may make the girls distrust or turn against her.2.) Get the journal to Yuu and search her house to find our phone.3.) Strengthen the Shadow in Mari's fake journal. Practice at disguising our-selves as her and any nightmare powers at our disposal.
>>3163607>we can do the standard evil join me speech while revealing what the "heroes" have done.But junko seems to be better than that and lets be honest, that shit never works. Its better to work on pulling yuu to our side before we murder or leave them in a vegetative state... actually that might be better.all of the other girls. After all, she'd like to have her...only? true friend back.
I thought the journal only said they had considered wiping her memory, not that they had actually done it. Considering Yuu was talking with our mom and recognized our phone, she still remembers us...I'm liking the ideas for revenge though. Driving Mari crazy and digging up dirt on Sachiko.
>>3164214I double checked and you're right, but I don't think we can really give the magical girls the benefit of the doubt at this point. They've already done worse.There's decent enough reason to believe it in or out of character.
>>3163449>time for a training montage
>>3164287Honestly between considering mind wiping our best friend, ignoring our mother's corruption, and her own family's house's corruption, I'd be game for fighting Mari once we bring her to her family's estate.I know we gotta play the long game and not reveal ourselves til we're super ready but I also feel like the plot won't really get going til confrontations start happening.
>>3164328Maybe if we pick off one of the other girls to make the timing of the nightmares look less suspicious? Rei and Kanna seem prime candidates for offing to kick things in gear since that leaves the ones we really want to suffer around.If we can get all Freddy Kruger on her we can repeat that night with other faces so she keeps on watching everyone die because she was a coward?If we keep to the make em despair before siphoning corruption as a powerup, we could have Odaka arrange for them to win a "prize" to some resort or whatever? Let him arrange some way where expecting disaster will reap him a profit (Don't want to start spending the money of a greed demon nonstop unless you're tempting fate) and arrange for a horror movie to start. Corrupt a local serial killer?

>>3164431>Train our shapeshifing ablties. Try to mimic other people. Afterward scout out Sachiko>>3164214>>3164287It is inconsequential if the mind wipe happened or not. All that matters is that Yuu thinks that it could have happened. Once she crosses that bridge we can make her doubt anything when it comes to the other girls with some evidence fabricated or real. Just give her a little push to make her doubt the reality of the situation and let her imagination do the rest.>>3164328Mari is a shit and deserves everything that is coming to her but she is our best bet to puppet and undermine the group if we don’t want to get Yuu killed.>>3164392Kanna is a good target, so is Rei. I kind of overlooked her. She is Sachiko‘s lapdog. Taking her out could take Sachiko off her game and open the possibility of pitting a crazy Mari against Sachiko in some kind of leadership struggle. Another good way to induce nightmares would be to run the girls ragged. Help set up shadow attacks across the city, day and night. Eventually something will go wrong or somebody will screw up hard enough for it to weigh on everyone’s consciences. Okada is fully a shadow now or more accurately a shadow wearing his skin but profit is always useful. The serial killer idea is interesting. Corrupt one and send them after potential magical girls and our ex-friends. That could lead to some nightmares.

Going inside the room you stand yourself in front of the mirror. Even though the mirror is just a table mirror but it is still big enough for your whole slender body to be seen and then some.

well, i archived the last thread before it died; hopefully i didn't fucked it up.
>>3164915What time of the day is it QM? If the girls are preoccupied with school or magical girl business. >scout out SachikoIf we run the risk of bumping into her>More training never hurts. Practice with your shadows. Maybe see what else the can do with our new found plague powers.>>3164929It archived fine. I was looking at it earlier.
>>3165122>What time of the day is it?its late afternoon
>>3165137It’s probably too risky to scout any of the girls as they are out of school or will be shortly. >Training I didn’t think of this earlier we might want to finish Mari’s journal if we are going to do the whole doppelgänger thing. We currently know that she caused our death. She is a coward. She is fairly distant from her family. She hates her wealth but still lives a comfortable, luxurious life anyway. We need to know a little more to convince her that the moment she falls asleep her darkest desires are out running amok and she can’t trust herself. It’s too soon to do something like murder another girl or civilian she has contact with and dump the evidence in Mari’s apartment. We could start by making her think that she is stealing from places she already goes to. That she is greedy just like the rest of her family. Any anons have other ideas?
>>3165177Yeah I think Junko should mess with Mari and train to replace her. Could ultimately consume her maybe. Then we'll have her wealth, more power and easier access to the rest of the magical girls.
>>3165177>>3164929>>3165202Although you finished training duplicating something that you should have killed right now, you still feel that you need to be ready when it comes to fighting those hopeful heroes.Still what to train?>Junko ArsenalOffensive>Swordbolt>Two-arm Swordfighting (Expert)Defensive>Dark Barrier (Adept)Utility>Summon Shadowspawn (Locked)>Rage II (Locked)>Train a new power (what?)please roll 1d100 for progress

>>3166553>Go to Mari's place
>>3166553>go to Mari’s place disguised as Mari.Time to see how she took our pranks. The disguise is just in case she set up a camera somewhere. Might as well have her see a doppelgänger.
>>3166577>>3166622Sure I'm down to disguise too.
>>3166553>go to Mari’s place disguised as Mari.
>>3166553Do we have some sort of rough connection to that shadow book we made?>If yes then we can see if we sense anything through that like a new entry or Mari being asleep>Go to Mari's house disguised as Mari.
>>3166702It has been a few days since you visited Mari. You already planted some corruption in the room and you are kinda curious to check out her status. Maybe a visit will do. With a disguise you shape yourself to Mari with her school uniform. Walking outside the room, Okada announces his presence with his voice again."Going out as Mari? then take my car. I'll have our Shadowshade to chaperone you around."As you go out you already see a big hulking bodyguard which is waiting for you. As he opens the door he said."My master said that i would listen to any orders you say. If there is anything then ask away."He then closes the door and drives you to Mari's penthouse..........Arriving at Mari's Penthouse you drop off to yourself and make the shadow and his car park there and wait for instructions. Currently you are in-front of the buillding that occupies Mari's penthouse. Going in you were greeted by the receptionist."Oh Mari-chan i thought you already came in."Oh boy here we go....(remember you don't quite have Mari's voice.)>I....have something to get>smile and nod>.....>Write-in
>>3166729wait, we were going trough the front door? shit.>I....have something to get *rub throat*
>>3166729>smile and nod
>>3166729>smile and nod Maybe toss in a cute giggle.I can’t believe my evil doppelgänger is this moé.
>>3166729changing from >>3166747 to >>3166761
>>3166747>>3166757>>3166761You just smiled and nod at the receptionist. A kind of smile that you are up to no good.You can't help it, you have a creepy smile according to Yuu. How much more expressive Mari face is when you smile evilly. With a skip of a jump and a giggle you directly go to the elevator as the receptionist nervously laugh. With a ding, you entered and go to the topmost floor of the building."Wow that kid is up to no good."...........Topmost floor and there are only one door which is your door. As you open...nevermind it is locked. Looking below the mat is a spare key you opened the door and excuse yourself. The room is....messy to say at least. everything is not in order in fact there are some clothes strewn around."WHOSE THERE?"Is that....a man's shout?>Check out the area>Hide>Write-in
>>3166773>>HideSeems we got a reaction out of her alright.
>>3166777>>3166784>>3166787>>3166788Hiding immediately from the messy kitchen she has the unknown man probably peeks around the quiet room."Hey did you see something.""Maybe just a mouse. It's kinda dirty in here.""Well rich kids. What can you say. But what should we do to this princess.""Heh will fetch us a high price. His uncle is one of the richest man here. Then we book out of this place and blow our money to blackjacks and hookers."Hey! That's your target and you won't let this scummy criminal apprehend her....unless.>Hey! That's the fake one you doofus>Let them be! Mari is going to be killed by these guys and you don't care.>Write-in
>>3166829I was expecting a boyfriend or burglars. Not a kidnapping attempt. I’m kind of torn what to do here. On one hand this is the kind of mundane stuff I wanted to strike at the girls with, on the she’s ours. >negative emotions summon shadows. Let’s see how these guys fare against some.
>>3166829>negative emotions summon shadows. Let’s see how these guys fare against some.
hmmm... interesting conundrum.>Let them be! Mari is going to be killed by these guys and you don't care.>Boost their negative emotions more. Unhinge them from their moral compass.If she was weak enough to be captured by to common thugs, she deserves whatever fate they give her.BUT we also need to plan a way to botch the rescue attempt because i'm sure that the parents will ask for money from Okada.>>3166844Interesting idea. we should just boost them up and maybe give them the idea to sell her as a slave...or cut her up for her organs. That way we are clean and we get our revenge.
>>3166847Or they can go all concrete encased schoolgirl on Mari.
>>3166858even better i guess. i think that would be a worse fate than whatever we could muster up.
>>3166829>Summon a shadowling to corrupt one of them with lust. (maybe a little bit of plague too?)No need to be territorial when we can make them our underling.I was considering to just follow em back to their lair and use the inevitable MG rescue attempt to pick off one of them but then I remembered our main motivation, so expecting a rescue is a bit against that.We can probably kill these dudes for messing with our prey after Odaka pays up and leave the briefcase full of cash at the crime scene.
>>3166859She'd fall into despair, so we'd need to be extremely quick at finishing her off right afterwards before she becomes an actual threat.
>>3166847Sorry to triple post. What if we had Odaka go on a vacation before the news of the randsom got out?He's on some island retreat where he can't hear the news about the ransom until somebody manages to drive or sail to where he's relaxing?
>>3166829I think the best course of action here would be to kill the thugs and Mari, and no one will be none the wiser when Junko replaces her or she needs to follow these men and then kill them and Mari after they've announced their ransom and then be freed in her place.
>>3166865fuck, you are right, but i think we can use that to our benefit. Falling into despair doesn't mean that they become something like us, it just creates shadows that feed of the negative emotions. In this case it might create another shadow like the one it was with our mother and... lust shadows? We can kill mari after they spawn, flee the scene, and let the rest of the MGs find the desecrated body. Should be a nice surprise for them.>>3166873eeeh, cellphones and the internet make that point somewhat moot. After all, if you want netflix, you need an internet connection.>>3166877If we really wanna kill her, we should do it after the kidnappers capture her. That way the blame can be easily pinned on then and we could even try to twist their emotions so they do the deed for us.
>>3166877We'd be caught the instant the girls ping for corruption. If they do kill her we need Mari to see our face before she dies. Preferably after she goes "someone save me!" so that we can have a witty retort handy.
>>3166829Can we get them possessed by shadows under our control? Then we could have them stow her away somewhere without calling for a ransome or doing anything to draw attention to themselves. Hell, they could store her at her family's house since it's shadow territory. Then we can get any info we need to better impersonate her, and also have whatever done to her to exact our revenge.
>>3166865Couldn’t we absorb her when she falls int dispair. I thought our current state was something of an anomaly in this magical girl world.I’m leaning to either be territorial and deal with them now or puppet them to torture Mari a bit. We could use them to give them a nice wound like our scar. Let them have some fun. Then show up as the Mari doppelgänger and violently kill them and have Mari watch. It would be a good mindfuck.
>>3166897If we play our cards right, Mari won't even know we're involved and we can have her think she's just been captured by some intelligent shadows acting on their own.
>>3166897well, at this point we don't really need to perfectly impersonate her since she will be dead soon and her rich uncle submitted to us. At most we'd need to look like her and we can already do that.>>3166901Or we boost the kidnappers bad emotions and let nature take its course. If you want to, we can tail them and look at mari (and make sure she looks at us) when she dies, but right now we don't really need to move a single finger for her to die.
>>3166890That's why it's a retreat instead of him just going somewhere. He could be claiming to try and relax away from the business of modern day and/or that he didn't charge his phone since he wasn't going to use it. No idea how ooc it would be for Odaka to do it though.Speaking of internet. We need to get one to record what they do to her and send it on the internet or school network as a mass email/message.>>3166900Absorbing her when she falls for powerups is the general plan since we can't 1v5 the entire group.What I seem to be leaning to after seeing the suggestions is: >Posses/boost them with the shadowling.>Concrete girl>Show up before she dies so that she thinks it's a rescue. IT WAS I, DI-Junko! >Maximum despair>Absorb Mari>Put the videos on the internet>Maybe find a way for Odaka to have an alabi for not being contacted to extend the time before anyone hears about the kidnapping.>Finish the kidnappers off because they tried to steal our prey.Impersonating Mari is bound to fail for numerous reasons so best to just let her die and move onto the next target.>>3166906We don't sound like her at all though.
>>3166912i agree with the general idea of the plan. sounds perfect.>We don't sound like her at all though.That's why i'm asking why we want to impersonate her, mostly because of your previous point.>Impersonating Mari is bound to fail for numerous reasons so best to just let her die and move onto the next target.
Uhhh there was a serious discussions you have right now so i would need something of a concensus between you guys.No seriously this is just a simple kidnapping incident that Mari haven't too much sleep with how paranoid she is now. You really did a number on her.
>>3166924well, i vote for this guy's general plan. >>3166912
It's cringe but I second the thought of having her be abused by them without killing her.We don't want her dead, we want her broken first and foremost.set a stage in an environment we have control over (even if we have to make doppelgangers of those two)just when she seems to lose all hope tell her Okada paid up then ship her to the next torture place.
>>3166930That’s what I’m going for. My whole idea in impersonating her was not to disguise ourselves as her but to break her Perfect Blue style. Leave the real one alive but as a total basket case being tormented by a silent avatar that she thinks is herself.
>>3166912I agree with having shadow creatures possess the kidnappers, then keeping her secluded so we can play mind games and wear her down enough to get her consumed by shadows/us.
Runoff vote before confirmation>Negative emotions summons shadows. Let's see how these guys fare against some>Let the kidnappers kidnap Mari to their hideout and knockout one of them and shapeshift as one
>>3166946>Let the kidnappers kidnap Mari to their hideout and Boost their negative emotions
>>3166946>Let the kidnappers kidnap Mari to their hideout and knockout one of them and shapeshift as one
>>3166946>>Let the kidnappers kidnap Mari to their hideout and knockout one of them and shapeshift as oneI really should have gone to sleep by now. Goodnight and have fun everyone.
>>3166946>Let the kidnappers kidnap Mari to their hideout and knockout one of them and shapeshift as one. If the plan doesn’t go as expected we can kill them and allow Mari to escape. It’s still pretty traumatizing that works for my end.
Plus we can give her a nice scar like ours. Let her know how we feel. Double post but it’s getting late.
>>3166958Can Junko even kill random strangers? I'd honestly prefer we just knock them out instead of murder. Fighting magic beasts is different from taking a human life, and if Junko is gonna cross that line it should only be towards her former friends who she has such strong hate towards.
>>3166962i'd say we just kill her. Letting her live (specially when EVERYTHING is perfectly positioned to kill her) is a surefire way for her to get stronger and fuck us up in the future.>>3166967good point.
>>3166967I did not want to get civilians involved but these guys are human scum and even if Junko was a pascifist before her current situation, I don’t think she would bat an eye to taking them out. Plus we are going to have to get our hands dirty eventually.
>>3166967the suggestion literally says "knock out", but I agree, I don't think we should let people die
This isn't really related to the task at hand, but as far as overall goals, I'm kinda hoping we get Junko to turn good again, or at least continue to try and protect people from monsters. I'm still playing as someone filled with rage and wanting revenge, but I've been trying to have her still uphold her sense of justice against shadows, and hoping she'll be able to sort things out with her former friends without killing them, though only after some intense battles and emotion filled conversations.Right now though I'm figuring she's okay using the shadows as her minions, but still against innocent casualties like when she killed the plague shadow.
Letting them be, they hauled Mari on their shoulder and move out of the house. Following them the two of them take a floor down. From that floor they go through the emergency stairs all the way down to the back as they open the back door and rushed to a car where they unceremoniously drop Mari onto the trunk and both of them drive the car away from who goes where.But you already tracked it. Going back the shadow is still inside the car waiting. Of course if you manage to knock two of those kidnapper you can both Shapeshift into kidnappers making Mari her worst nightmare ever. Oh the plan, the pain, the corruption. Entering the vehicle you immediately relay the one that you wanted to track. The Shadowspectre immediately drives off and tail the kidnapper to their supposed hideout.This will be a long night...........Arriving at the one of the abandoned houses in between the factory where you fought the Plague Shadow last time you get out along with your Shadowspectre and move through the house as quietly as you can. Peeking through the window you see one kidnapper trying to smell Mari all over her body. The other one who you can't see around is probably inside."Hey i'm going outside to pee.""Take you time...i'm going to enjoy smelling the princess.""Don't touch it! Or our price will drop and the demand will be gone""I'll do my best."After waiting for a few minutes you can hear him opening the back door as he sputtering curses."Fucking horndog if he want's to fuck high school kids he should just kidnap one and leave her in the ditch."Nodding to the spectre, he moves in and immediately knocks him out. With a grunt he goes down and drag him out of the house and sight. Looking at the body of the kidnapper#1 you slowly morph your body until you have his appearance. Looking once over to the spectre and he raises a thumbs up. Going back inside you say as little as possible."Hey! i think someone is coming."Thankfully he hears it and goes to your position with a pistol in hand. Thank god you didn't attack them on the penthouse or it will drop your guard. Outside the house the spectre get a drop of him and also knock him out. Dragging them to his partner."Hey! go imitate his appearance and lets go back to the house."With a nod your spectre immediately shifts and morphs into one of the kidnapper which you will call kidnapper#2. Now complete it's time to face Mari...............Inside is a sleeping face of Mari probably tired from those restless night of your own devices. Well to be honest she is your but how?>Write-in
>>3167030I feel like a dog that just caught the car he was chasing. Now that we’ve got her I’m out of great ideas. >First priority is to move her to somewhere we control. Blindfold her and get her in our car. Take her to Okada’s mansion. It’s the last place anyone would look for her.
well goodnight everyone. see you tomorrow
>>3167030>Write-inFirst tie her up in such a way that she can't use her powers. Then we move her to Okada's mansion.>>3167046I have several ideas, but id on't wanna sound too sadistic.
>>3167046I suggest we break her legs first.
>>3167052wake her up via waterboarding, then we rip out part of her tongue and finally we break her legs.
>>3167047Night Corruptor. Thanks for running. >>3167050Hey can’t be that bad I’m the one that wants to mind brake her and I did bring up the concrete encased schoolgirl incident. We could also try to turn her to the dark side and all that. Obviously after a bit suffering. I would want her to understand exactly what we felt as we died. Maybe now that we have a not so willing subject we can test out our abilities and see if we can give Mari some fun nightmares.
>>3167060>We could also try to turn her to the dark side and all that.as nice as that would be, i don't think she will submit to us and it might force us to forcefully convert or kill yuu.>Hey can’t be that bad I’m the one that wants to mind brake her and I did bring up the concrete encased schoolgirl incident. In that case we can rip out her lips so she can only scream, seal the wounds with a hot iron, chop her extremities with a dull machete, stab one of her lungs so she continuously feels like she is suffocating and when she begs for death with her dying breath, we reveal she was dreaming all along, but now its time for her to feel that pain in her true flesh
>>3167057But if she bleeds out from her tongue before the real torture starts?Also, hammer nails into her arms to be safe.
>>3167070we seal her wounds with a hot iron.
I'm voting for letting her fall to despair enough that she creates a shadow that feeds off her life force like what happened to our mom when they left us to die. Keep her trapped like that. Poetic justice.For that, taking her to Okada's is important. Safe place full of shadows. Plus, it'll let us torment her about how she abandoned her family.>Abandoned her family to shadows>Abandoned her friend and her friend's mother to shadows>Not only can't she save anyone, she barely even tries.>A hypocrite who talks about her family's wealth with disgust but uses those same funds for her own comfort.>Willing to erase the memories of one of her friends rather than talking to them and trying to help them overcome their despair. She's no friend at all.
>>3167057Cut out her toungue? But then she can’t scream ineffectually. That’s no fun. I want the mental image of those long keyaaa anime screams. Yep, I’m definitely ending up on a list. Would Junko have any reason to know what waterboarding is? She’s a Japanese schoolgirl. I’m not sure she was old enough to comprehend what happened when the whole enhanced interrogation thing broke, much less to follow international politics.
>>3167077>I want the mental image of those long keyaaa anime screams.you can do those without part of a tongue. the tongue is mostly used for "L" and "T" sounds. Something like a kyaaaaaa scream (and screams in general) uses more vowels that don't require the tongue and the initial "K"sound can be made with the mouth. You can test this by sticking the tongue to the bottom of the mouth and replicating the sound.>Junko have any reason to know what waterboarding isPlacing a rag on one's face and throwing water over it (or just using water without the rag) is not something that is exactly secret; I knew that on middle school and we did that to sleeping classmates because we were assholes. Also junko could have known it from movies or books.
>>3167030I want to choke her unconscious disguised as herself at least once.
>>3167069That’s a fair point with Yuu. I don’t want to go after her. I still thing we can use the journal entry to convince her that the mind wipe happens and Mari, Sachiko, and Co. deserve what they get. Just because we don’t want to hurt her doesn’t mean we have to be entirely truthful with her. The dream thing is exactly up my alley and we should practice it the first chance we get. >>3167074>Abandoned her family to shadows>Abandoned her friend and her friend's mother to shadows>Not only can't she save anyone, she barely even tries.>A hypocrite who talks about her family's wealth with disgust but uses those same funds for her own comfort.>Willing to erase the memories of one of her friends rather than talking to them and trying to help them overcome their despair. She's no friend at all.I really want to drill how shitty she is into her head. Torture with a point is much better than “look at how evil I am torture.
>>3167072We could shove the hot iron inside her.
>>3167074I'll support this
>>3167096For the first part pic related. Dang you guys were assholes when I was in middle school we musty just stuck to kicking each other in the balls or pegging guys in the head with 20lbs medicine balls when we felt like being assholes.>>3167098I could second this.
Speaking of being assholes in middle school in rage i grabbed a wooden plank and smacked a person in the head. Immediately unconscious. for pranks i also did put a mop on the face and then dump water on it.
>>3167030>"Don't touch it! Or our price will drop and the demand will be gone"so not kidnappers for ransom but straight up human traffickers trying to sell a high class virgin. I'll not pretend to not see tge gift horse nor look it in the mouth. Such deprived people.I don't need a graphic depiction of rape, but I want to properly degrade her emotionally and will use sexuality as a means.Get her to Okadas basement and install some chains (maybe he already has a few)wake her up with a bucket of water and roughly undress her and chain her up.have a nice photoshoot for potential buyers and ask her to smile for it.Let her fantasy run wild on what will happen to her. Ones imagination and uncertainty is always better than a clear idea.maybe she shouldn't stress too much or her flesh will get chewy, depending on the highest bidder... Then leave her alone for a day or two.for starters
>>3167228followup:fetch her diary and look what she wrote since we swapped it. What makes her most paranoid. How can we best destroy her.I vote to not physically leave marks, at least not wounds. (if life gives you rapist make rapeonade)Then strangle her in disguise and put her back in her apartment which we had cleaned beforehand.make another diary entry about her guilt about junko and her wish to be punished for it and how she fantazised about it.Absolutely break her.If we finally kill her in the future it'll be mercy
>>3167017The marshmallow was adding the word kill randomly to her thoughts after she ate it. At this point I think it's more appropriate to consider her stance on killing to be similar to the punisher. She won't go after innocent targets but evil ones aren't going to make her feel guilty.
I don't think moving her is a good idea. These guys are theoretically professionals so this place is actually the safest place to hide her until whenever they planned on sneaking her out.An attempt at reinforcing the area via using our shields similar to how the mansion is cloaked from MG radar is about the only way to make it a better location.>>3167110>I really want to drill how shitty she is into her head. Torture with a point is much better than “look at how evil I am torture.She's already kinda self aware. The torture won't add anything to it and is just there for revenge and breaking her down to just before the despair event horizon. We could easily fade to black for this entire section and have no narrative changes. It's when we show up after the torture as she's begging for help/rescue and we say something along the lines of "Like how you saved me?",""Friends have always got each other's back!", "I understand, it hurt's so much doesn't it?, Dying I mean.","Look on the bright side, at least you had somebody to hear you scream." and etc. The accusations should be after the torture/abuse imo, so that her hope of being rescued is still there. If she despairs in the middle of everything before we're finished with her, we'd be basically whatever the female equivalent of blue balled is.>>3167030>Search the house to see what's in it and enable kidnapper #1. If #1 sees us our shadowling can bluff that we're a client willing to pay for a videotape. I assume there are sex toys in here somewhere as those are owned by all upstanding Japanese citizens. Ball gags, rotors, sexy blindfolds and whatever else to truss her up and make Mari look more and more tempting to #1 so that he can get corrupted as time goes on.
we only went there to further prank her/drive her mad I think this guy >>3167228 >>3167285 has the right idea, but I rather have her unharmed and as little time passes as possible to stalk it up to really just have been some fever dream. >>3167052>>3167057physical torture is so boringas far as enhanced interrogation techniques are concerned, sleep deprivation is the only one I really want to use on her because it can be done without her actively knowing it is done to her by someone else.>>3167292>stance on killingdo we really want her dead though?>>3167329>convo promptI like it, but I also would like the idea of being disguised as an corrupted version of herself to talk to her, along "this is what you are going to become.">>3167285>>3167329>have her rapedIf so, I hope we can get a lust-shadowsomething around to make her enjoy it for, if we let her go, she will hate herself even more.I really like the idea of stuffing her back into her cleaned apartment wit seemingly nothing having occurred.Can we drug her make-up with something that gets absorbed through the skin to make her paranoid or hallucinogenic?
>>3167775>do we really want her dead though?Yes. Yes we do; its the literal premise of the quest.
>>3167798revenge does not have to equal murder, especially since there are worse things than death
>>3167804Yeah, but leaving them alive means trouble because they can tell other MGs or call the police, call our mom, post it on the internet(and make them martyrs and icons) or craft a revenge of their own. Its not worth it.
>>3167811that's why I also like it with the added condition for the victim to not know what is happening.If you think you're just going insane, you won't tell your friends or call the police or... well, you can post it on /x/, but without target whom you know is responsible you can't exact revenge.If the game is just about killing them all one after the other it would be boring.
>>3167827Except that we want her to know why she is dying and who is killing her.
>>3167811if we can make her dead weight she will slow the others more down than she will be a future threat.from a narrative standpoint we have her on the silver platter, with the options being kill/torturekill and mindfuck furtherthe later would be more interesting to me.>>3167775>drug heryou sick fuck, I like youbut why make up?
>>3167856We can leave her in a vegetative state, or maybe paralized from the head down, but any other option has the risk of her telling everyone that we are back with a vengeance. UNLESS we decide to mindwipe specific parts of her memory; the problem with that is that we don't know how to do it.
*earlier afternoon*"Sachiko. Mari seem to be jittery. Is something happening?""To be honest, i didn't ask. It seemed to be personal.

>>3167847>revealing the master plan when every other target is still at 100%We can still do that later when we have actually won.>>3167864>risk of her telling everyone that we are back with a vengeancehow would she know that? all she would know in the mindfuck scenario would be that someone kidnapped her and then put her back for no reason. And that is if she even believes it to have not just happened in her imagination because we made another fake diary entry. It's a wonky plan, but "Junko" would never make an appearance. Mari would not be able to know what's going on, and making her increasingly paranoid so she can't trust her own senses (see my drug suggestion) is the point
>>3167864wanted to answer something long, but yeah, what he said >>3167876>>3167873don't know why but suddenly I fear trying to drive her insane might just drive her to suicideMaybe at the height of it all we just go to her and ask her to kill herself.
>>3167876The problem with the mindfuck plan is that is too complex and relies on unknown factors and abilities we dont know we have. Its way simpler to physically fuck her up amd either leave her as our personal torture toy, or leave her on her dying breath, call our ex friends and see how they ger horrified by her mangled corpse.
>>3167898>too complex and relies on unknown factors and abilities we dont know we haveall we need to do is cloud her senses while awake with us, mess her slightly emotionally up and then put her back.her mental state is already fragile so it's easierI'd even say your plan is more risky, her mangled corpse would only put the other MGs very much at attention, especially when doing something as stupid as call them
>>3167907Then we kill her burn her corpse and be done with it. Or we leave her on a metaphorical basement for the rest of her life being our torture toy.
>>3167228I have been down with breaking her will and her mind since the beginning. I agree we should use the diary and the show up as her doppelgänger knock her out and put her right back in her apartment is cool. The thing is I'm not sure Mari was even conscious for her kidnapping. I think she was paranoid from the whole furniture "prank" and the journal amplified that emotion. So she stayed up thinking someone was after her. Ironically, she was doubly right. The other problem is we just knocked out her would be kidnappers. They probably know just like us that Mari is a little forgetful and tends to leave her door unlocked and probably she will be even more after we start breaking down her mind.>>3167775I originally wanted to kill her but I find myself questioning that the longer this drags on. I think it might be possible to break her so far that eventually she thinks we are justified in our actions, after all her negligence did kill us.I like the idea carrying most of our interactions disguised as Mari. We might want to refrain from speaking till she is a bit more broken so that hearing Junko's voice come out of her mouth might just be another hallucination caused by grief.I don't think we should have her raped. Mari didn't rape Junko; her negligence killed her and could have lead to more deaths, our mom and Yuu further down the line.As far as drugs go our shadow powers already can amplify negative emotions. We can work from there.>>3167804>revenge does not have to equal murder, especially since there are worse things than deathIt has been said that no matter how severe imprisonment can be on a person, they are always free in their own mind. Their dreams and fantasy can allow them to escape mentally or give them hope. I want to imprison Mari in her own mind; make her unable to trust herself. Keep her from being able to tell reality from fantasy, in essence turning her own mind into a torture device kind of like schizophrenia. Whether she is pushed over the edge, into despair, or eventually see our line of reasoning and be corrupted (We have the journal and already know of some of her failings. Shadow Okada might want to join in.). She can decide her own fate.>>3167847For all she knows we can just be a ghost or a figment of her imagination. After all Junko is dead, right?>>3167864We know other girls can mind wipe people. We now have a perfect test subject to experiment on. She is also currently sleeping so we could test out if we can inflict nightmares on targets in emotional distress.
>>3168035>We know other girls can mind wipe people. We now have a perfect test subject to experiment on. But we have no idea where to begin. Its the same as knowing that a combustion engine exists and works. We can know that but without the tools and the proper equipment we wont be able to do much.>>3168035>After all Junko is dead, right?But a paranoid mind begins to wander to weird places. After all they never got junko's body and shadows are a tricky sort that can take different shapes.
Mari is already tied and it would be easy to move her out still you have to make precautions. Making the shadow tie her up would make it untying her out of the chair and then retying her again in hand, feet, arms and her whole body. After the shadow finished binding Mari, what you see makes you giggle for a little bit. Mari in her position like a turkey out from the oven and tied up in shibari. To be honest you have to question the shadow motives and ways but you ignore it for now. You let the shadow carry Mari to your car and drive through Okada's Mansion where you will start your own fun.........Arriving at the front door, Okada is there to greet you."Ah! My granddaughter. Well not really my granddaughter because the Okada that resides in me is dead but whatever she is still my granddaughter. So how will you do this my queen?">Get you basement clean up and tools ready>I'll have her my fun thank you very much>I'll have some fun maybe kill her if im bored>Write-in
>>3167775>do we really want her dead though?I feel like you need to read up on the opening posts of the quests if you have to ask that. We're staying in character. We are a literal ball of rage angry at HER for leaving us to die and we now know she's the one that had the idea in the first place. There is no justifiable in-character reason to let her live after whatever happens next when everything got laid out so hard. The only one that might escape death is Yuu and that's because we can make some logical leaps to think she wasn't in on the betrayal.
>>3168196Could we convert her? I mean, we are shadows and could cause enough dispair to bring her to our side through torture/ecchie shit.
>>3168196>Get you basement clean up and tools ready
>>3168224Hmm... maybe not her per se, but a shadow that can be born from her madness, confusion and pain.
>>3167804WE are the worse thing than death. The concrete girl end Mari was about to have is just about the only thing that can compare.>>3168196Well that was a really bad move. Police might be able to track the car to the mansion which would mean we're screwed.Disposing of the body is a chance to be caught and traced back to the mansion which means we're screwed. The old plan would let her gruesome end rattle the rest of the MG troupe but now it's turned into a much bigger risk of police or others figuring things out.If she lives and manages to escape or send up an arrow flare of some sort or break the barrier, our secret lair just got uncovered. Aka we're screwed.A random meido could walk into the wrong room. The jig is up.It would have been far easier and more prudent to just let her get her bad end at the place she was kidnapped. There isn't really much worse that we can do here than there. Us using shadowlings or whatever for what's next is actually going easier on her because regular humans doing what they were gonna do to Mari is actually even more terrifying. Humans can't be pinged. Shadows can. We went and gave her hope that she could be rescued to make breaking her more annoying.>>3168196>Basement and toolsI'm more than ok with a fade to black or general summaries. This whole torture business is turning into 5 minutes on namek and it's not like we personally get anything from vicariously watching each detail of a girl get tortured into insanity.
>>3168316>Well that was a really bad move. I agree with you but well, here we are and we have to deal with the cards we have been dealt.Unless we decide to fake a rescue attempt to fuck with mari, we should be fine here because the mansion is overrun by shadows. I can bet that the only humans are the outside guards and they won't go to the basement.
>>3168316last time i gave a write-in option and there was discussion for that i apologize if i didnt seem to see anything but there is only one option i saw where i would assume all of you would agree and that is >>3167046If i miss something please point it out or we will resume the show.
>>3168507eh. its a learning lesson for all of us. i say we continue as such.
>>3168196>>Get you basement clean up and tools ready
>>3168507Probably a communication misfire somewhere. It was late at night and i'm noticing that I read one of the posts wrong at 2am which may explain how when I came back it fly like we skipped a step. Better to trudge on ahead than have to do a rewrite anyway.On a side note: What about making us an urban legend? It'll freak them out if they randomly stumble on some kids singing songs about herJunko-ChanMahou-ChanWhy do you cry?All of my friends went and left me to die.
>>3168196>still on further mindfuck plan
"Is your basement available Okada?""Well if you want to do your activities there feel free.""And the tools?""We have all kinds of tools that is enough to make a person build a car given that he has the parts so all tools, power tools, clip. pliers. grips and turning knobs are there.""Good. Let your shadow fetch it for me and i can start my work.""As you wish my Queen."The shadow passes Mari body for you to carry and go behind the staircase and into the basement. On the first basement you see row upon rows of cars but you ignored it and go below another floor. On second basement you see some cars but you think they are in a state of repair. Your previous companion is seen collecting all kinds of tools in hand and putting it on a tool case. Going on a room you are in a small 3x8 room with a single chair and a light bulb above. You put Mari body even though in that position is uncomfortable as she is not really sitting as her legs and feet are both tied. It was a numerous attempt to keep her balanced too as she tends to slide a little bit.The shadow now delivered numerous boxes and tools for you to use.>So how will you wake up Mari?>Waterboard>Hammer>Crush that finger with a vice grip>Write-inalso add>anything to say?
>>3168077>I'll have her my fun thank you very much
>>3169309>WaterboardThe expectation of pain is more soul crushing than the pain itself. Right now we should wake her up with something that won't harm her so we can take advantage of that.Also>Take mari's form
>>3169317I guess I'll support this one. Turning into her would freak her out more but also tip her off to shadow stuff going down, and also spoil our identity if we can't disguise our voice.For whatever reason we can sound like the random kidnapper without trouble, so might as well take advantage of that.
>>3169346but here comes the fun part; Mari doesn't know we are alive and for all that its worth we might as well be a shape shifting shadow that is torturing her with her own looks and the voice of her dead friend. We just need a different name and we're done.
>>3169309see to a few car batteries we can hook together to give her a few shocks too.I still like to not leave marks and put her back in bed later
>>3169346you can make your voice distorted like. Perks of being a fear shadow where you can distort your voice to mask your real voice. If enough corruption and fear you can imitate her voice and you can mess her up more.
>>3169369is it safe to say she is/will be fearful enough?
Getting a dirtry rag from one of those cars you put it on Mari face. With a bucket of water you dump her on the face. She immediately wakes up and hacks while heaving her open mouth as she has difficulty finding some space for her to breathe."M̸̙̪̰̭a̙̖͕͘ͅr̞͕͙̟͉̮͘i̯̩͔͖̹̦͖i͔̝ ̨͓̜̫͉͉͇͍h̗̖̘̱͙̻̟a͖̰ͅv̱̩é̖̠͈̭̹̣ ̝̣͔͙̯̟̥́w͈͚̫a̞it̨̳͔ḙḑ̖͓ ̺̤͈f̜͍o̵͔͇r͚̫̹͓̜͓ ̫t͖h̭͕̱̯̱is̨̙̠͎̦""W-who's there?""Y͞o͇͖͉̘u̫r ̬̺̤̣̤̮͠w͢o̖͖̦͖̱̹r̡s̺̮̦̣̪͡t̖̩̰̺͙͓ ̟͖̣̮͚̭n̙i̫̟̠͔g̥̼̠͡h͕̹̼͔̳̻̩m͎̜̥͖̹̜a̼͎̱̼ͅṛ̸̜̺e̟̗̗̺̪͓ͅ."You dump another water on her face as she hacks and coughs from the heavy dirty rag and the water that slowly seeps through her face.

But on that note.... we could begin training her. The human body lasts around 3 days without water; if we leave her a whole day in the dark or maybe two, wailing in her own corruption, unable to know what time it is or how much time has passed, she might become VERY pliable and and might agree to anything in order to get some food and to stop the isolation. Basically something like the video but way darker and more terrifying.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqKdEhx-dD4
>>3170022This is a good plan. We can check on her in the mean time and soak up that delicious despair. Heck another good thing to bring shadow Okada in on. She needs uphold the family name and all that.Granted she's not entirely without fluids. I don't know how much sheltered ojou-sama Mari knows about Bear Grylls memes.>Well I'm tied up in a basement without my magical girl powers. Better drink my own piss.
>>3170092well, she's tied up, so unless the shadows decide to move her around, she won't be able to reach it by herself. She can drink her own tears though.
>>3170022>without waterit's not water boarding if you use gasoline
>>3170101I assumed from corruptor’s description of how her hands and feet are tied and Junko’s difficulty putting her into a sitting position, that she’s basically hogtied. If Mari thrashes around enough she would fall flat on her stomach. Also implying that wouldn’t amuse the fuck out of the shadows.
>>3170109>we return two days later.>the lack of light, intense pain, being unable to move and being forced to drink her own tears along having to siffer other nasty humiliations drove Mari to insanity faster than expected.>"Oh hello me! Have you seen my friedns?">"This shadow is junko, that one is dead junko, the one sleeping on my wound is kanna and the one in the corner is rei.">*whispering* "sachiko mari and yuu were here but got eaten by me." "Oops!"
will Mari spawn shadows of her own we can feast on?Do we have anything to gain from keeping her alive at this point?I wanted her to go insane more subtle, not through torture. Now we're basically just clubbing a wet ball of fur
>>3170283> Now we're basically just clubbing a wet ball of furLook. If canadians made seal clubbing a national passtime, we can make mari clubbing ours too.>will Mari spawn shadows of her own we can feast on?She should.
>>3170022Yeh, but like, she broke before we even did anything. I'm not experienced with kidnappings but she really is a coward.>But on that note.... we could begin training her.Training her doesn't seem like something that's gonna work and I still see no reason why Junko wouldn't kill her after venting frustrations out on her for a little bit. Stockholm syndrome and the like happens because of perceived kindness We have none of that for her and Stockholm syndrome is rare enough to surprise people when it happens instead of constantly being planned for.If we operate on American tropes then torture would be effective. If we operate on "realism", then the most we get is her saying what she thinks we want to hear and breaking out or sending a distress call the instant she gets a chance because "Why would I be loyal to you when you're the one that tortured me?"Overall, I'm against stretching the Mari arc out. The time to drive her slowly insane passed when the kidnappers showed up and we technically rescued her from a "worse" fate since it wouldn't be surprising if whatever person would have bought her would be doing what we are after or during the initial "fun."We should play with her a little more so that we eventually get to the reveal and/or peak despair before ending her and dump the body somewhere it will be publicly found. Maybe post a mass video/email of her so that the girls get even more rattled by actually seeing the end result of her.
>>3170327Well, i don't know under what rules this world works on so i'm just giving general options. But altough killing her right away is fine for me, maybe we can get something extra out of her before we burn her alive or something.
>>3170283I wanted to go subtle with everything but the kidnapinng forced our hand. We can still do plenty of mindfucky stuff down here. Just takes a little imagination. What if we keep tortung her as doppelgänger Mari and after a particularly bad session turn back into Junko and tell her she’s dead. As long as we can control what she perceives we can lie to dig the knife in deeper. >>3170363QM always has final say on what can happen and realism kind walked out the door when the magical superpowers and shadow monsters entered the setting. Magic gives you a long leash to pull off bullshit. And we can shapeshift and know some MG’s can alter memories. That’s a load of it right there. I would have been down for letting any of the other girls just get kidnapped and possibly murdered but Mari was the girl that fucked everything up. A conventional death is too good for her. I agree we should get on with constructing a plan for the other girls but it’s only thread two and so far we got the big target in hand and we don’t want to hurt Yuu so that leaves with three girls to go. We can always leave Mari in the pot boiling once we get her phone and make up something like her Uncle sent her on a month long vacation because she was soo stressed out.
Going to Okada for ideas for Mari disappearance is a pretty good notion right now. Considering Okada tendencies of "advising" you what to do and you hate to admit it but you are kinda on the fence on this situation. Why does killing people have to do more work. You could just have skank her with your sword and leave her be outside for all to see. That would show. But alas real world is cruel but you are more crueler. Going inside Okada is sitting counting his money bills in his hands no doubt from his illicit activities."Okada. Any ideas how we make Mari disappear? Permanently,""Hmmm....how about this. Mari goes on a vacation but the plane magically poof.""Poof?""Well over the years aviation has rare cases such as these. And they would look for crash site on a vast ocean with differing currents. Some would come ashore on some random island but the point is. They will find the aircraft and not the passenger as for all they care is how it crashed. Not how the passenger survived the crash.""Hmmmm i would think about it. For now i'll go to her apartment and clean anything incriminating. We need to make it clean if we want to go with your plan.""Of course my queen."And so you transformed into Mari and elect not to take a car as it would take time. Jumping from building to building you arrive at Mari's penthouse rooftop in record time. Entering the room is in the same state of disarray. Annoyed at the mess you summon a literal black hole sucking anything on the floor. She won't miss those things anyway as she won't be coming home. You also do the same on the bedroom. They only thing that you did is fixing the bed with her heavy comforters. Getting the shadow journal on you double taking inside the room.Yep clean as new.Going outside you go back to Okada Mansion as the sunrise is slowly going up illuminating the city.......................Arriving at the mansion you are thinking if you want to go with Okada alibi. Or you could suggest your own and he will do it. Hell you let him do it. He has the connection anyway.>Go with Okada alibi for Mari disappearance>Make your own alibi>Check on Mari>Sleep>Go somewhere (where?)>Investigate (who?)>Write-in
>>3170448>Go with Okada alibi for Mari disappearancePlane crash in the middle of the ocean is really good.
>>3170448isn't she supposed to be really worried about exams?We can spin the stress of that as an excuse.Maybe only after we have a second one to go for that excuse, until then we should lay false trails of her
>>3170448>>Go with Okada alibi for Mari disappearance Time for a one way trip.
>>3170477exams as stated when in senior year is not the exams that you take on your school but to get ready for the entrance examination the universities for student admittance and the better university you want to go in, the harder the examination is thus even if the exam in their school is there it only pales what is going to be on one of the prestigious schools and universities entrance examination.
>>3170509I know that it really scared her and she stopped had trouble sleeping but what exactly happened when Mari woke up and found the journal and all the stuff we messed with?
>>3170546why not ask Mari ;^)
>>3170567A perfectly fair point. Just not sure how to work that into one of our little “chats”. Maybe some other anon is just as intriguied as me and could come up with something.
>>3170454>>3170479"Okada! We will go with your plan.""Alright i have a private jet that i won't be using anyway. I'll make the necessary preparations."Going 2 floors down below and opening a door lies Mari squirming in her seat as the Shadows extract her despair over her. She is pale in comparison when you got her here and she stupidly drools at the floor like a toddler. Seems her brain didn't carry the pressure from being tortured physically. Hell she lived a very sheltered rich life, she can't predict that something like think would happen. You grasp Mari head with one hand and siphon whatever she has left in her body empowering your own in return.>NEW SKIIL ACQUIRED>(UPGRADE) HOMING SWORD BOLT - A shockwave left from your sword causing it to home on the target as long as the target was seen.>Ẁ̧͠͞I̵̵͟N̶͞͡D̴̀ ͘͞A̴̕R̵̸͘͞R̀͢͠Ò́̕W̴̵̨ (UNUSABLE,,,,,,,,MUTATING)>WIND ARROW BECAME SHADOW ARROW - An arrow that has high concentration of corruptive energy.

>>3170643>>Let her know my revenge>Write-in (any additional dialogue you want to add)>ask her what she thought about the prank>drop your disguise “Mari guess what we have in common. We’re both dead now!”
>>3170643Hate to double post but can we do anything with Vegi-Mari? Otherwise we might as well put the real Mari on the plane too.
>>3170643>Let her know my revenge>Write-in (any additional dialogue you want to add)>drop your disguise “Mari guess what we have in common. We’re both dead now!”>"this makes us bffs in some sort of way, don't you agree?"
>>3170682....we could try to puppet her in the same way that okada is being controled, but since we can create shape shifting shadowlings and have mari's memories i don't think her body will bring us any advantage other than using her MG powers (which i doubt since the body will be a husk controlled from afar or with a shadowling within)
>>3170427In retrospect I should have said we should shapeshift as one of the remaining girls coming to visit Mari. That would send police after them for questioning.
>>3170946Hmm... we can still do that with mari's image or with the image of another girl.
Random idea that I'm just throwing out here. What if there was no crash and the supposed trip is just used to delay for time?We could leave the original journal for some soon to be confused cops to find talking about her leaving a us to die when we're a known missing child case. If we can get the timing right for people to notice there's no Mari around, there should only be one or two girls left when we're being much more brazen about attacking and they ge the added horror of learning what happened to Mari.It also doubles as a backup plan since even if we get defeated after the endgame, everyone is going to publicly know what they did.
>>3170989The problem with that plan is that it brings too many unknown factos which include the police and the media (because mari has important family).
>>3171004I figured that if we were this loose with the risks already, then why not a more dramatic conclusion from the ones we've taken?If we pull the killing normally off without a hitch, then everyone never realizes what they did. They're just some girls that died tragically through unknown means. Some random yakuza (probably those kidnappers?) will be forced to take the blame for bonus murders to pad the department's crime statistics. If we actually let our story become public, at minimum we become some scary ghost story. Best case means we don't just kill them, we kill their reputation too. They aren't some poor victims. They're karma coming back for their misdeeds.I wasn't thinking of this but it might also get rid of any prospective out of town allies when they realize they're in deep shit and try to get help from an outside city. As i said earlier it also doubles as a backup plan for if we get stopped before the end.We (as players) probably need to learn more about magical girls in general to know why they're kept secret or how.why they're made but that's what I was getting at based on the information we've got.
>>3171165>I figured that if we were this loose with the risks already, then why not a more dramatic conclusion from the ones we've taken?Because we want to return to our normal life.
>>3170643>Let her know my revenge>"You never even tried to fight back. To think I once trusted you with my life. At least now you won't be letting anyone else down."Also I vote we keep her there so we can show her off to more resilient people. Break them by seeing their already too far gone to be saved friend.Question is, who all is left for us to harass, I'm not sure if we're wanting to get revenge against Yuu or the one in training. Not like we'd expect the newbie to take on a threat we're having trouble with, and maybe once we get some answers out of Yuu we can be friends again. The others are definitely going down though.
>>3171684Another anon pointed out Rei might be ideal since she's basically Sachiko's pet. She seems prime for demoralizing the leader before she catches on to her group being targeted.As far as the hitlist goes, Mari was #2 while Sachiko was #1 since while Mari was a coward, Sachiko is the one that told everyone to go along with it. As the leader she's the one that bears the brunt of responsibility.Kanna is sort of a low priority since if Sachiko ends up doing something like confessing that only her and Mari knew the plan was to ditch you, she might miraculously end up surviving. Well that and there aren't any reasons to really pick her other than convenience while the others have a motive from an emotional or practicality standpoint.Until we as players know how magical girls are recruited in the first place, it might not be the best idea to leave her alive and find out they stumbled upon a healer that can restore Mari and whatever other victims we gather to a sane state.
>>3171818Sounds like Rei is our next target then. Guess we'll go spy on her once we have our dramatic reveal with Mari and leave her to her fate.Yeah I know it's a stupid thing to do but I love action and drama in my stories and I don't want to completely close the Mari plot thread just yet so I want her alive for potential future hyjinks.
>>3171945As for targets, scouting out Rei to begin Operation: Geek the Mage is fine. I think we might want to work on getting Yuu on our side before we have too much blood on our hands. Especially blood that we don’t have plausible deniability for. I did not want to just up and kill Mari but how were we know that she would die just like she lived, as a total pussy bitch. I mean, damn, all we did was yell at her a bit, give her a couple nicks, and stab her in the leg and bang, despair event horizon crossed. While being a drooling retard in the basement is a fate worse then death, there is little we can do with her now and she’s just a liability. Unless we can vomit up her soul and kind of stick it back in there. Then pull it out again. But that’s like cosmically lewd; Junko is a pure girl.
>>3171999We did probably forget that the journal was corrupting/enhancing her highest negative emotion, but the fact that it wasn't guilt is a pretty big strike against her. If it was guilt she'd get the answer right the first time or be horrified that there was more than one answer. Not much drama left to be had from Mari that can't be had with videotape and/or later police reports.I was against the plane thing, but Mari's body showing up later means Odaka's shadow just fucked itself in terms of an alabi if it was trying to use us. She went catatonic and it's too late to pin it on the kidnappersOn a side note, we're probably gonna have to bust up that sex slave trade. No way in hell is what's left of our morality leaving that around. Odaka might not like it,(and probably hired them in the first place to speed us up) but we can always use the excuse that they nearly stole our prey by accident and go on a rampage to prevent further disruption.Us venting frustrations on that shipping container in the quest OP showed we're superhuman enough to do it too if we don't have shadow clones flipping info to the police.I wonder if the government or some other organization knows about magic. Seems strange for it to not be a part of the local culture outside of any theoretical anime. It would be part of folklore instead of a media creation.Inb4 the magical FBI, SCP, or Mushishi shows up.
sorry for not posting today. I just got admitted out of hospital and have been resting ever since. I'll start writing in a few minutes. Hours at worst. Now buckle up cause Mari's fate is now in your hands.
>>3170660>>3170688>>3171684You drop your glamour first, letting your old self starting to come back the way it used to be. Ironic that you have some secret admirers from boys and mostly girls alike. Yet here is one in front of your in her pathetic state. You rip her blindfold and letting her see light for the first time she was abducted. Mari's eyes having a hard time adjusting from the light. After some minutes where she can clearly see the first thing she saw is your face.And she was horrified."Guess what we have in common. We're both dead now!""No....no this.....this is.....but you're""Dead? So are you. Is it ironic? makes me feel like bff in some sort of way don't you agree?"Mari hangs her head low having a hard time coming in terms in her situation."I guess....i'm already dead huh.""You never even tried to fight back.

In case you call backup but hey i'll give you a chance."You cut all the rope that binds her and let her sit properly for the first time."The door is open. Not that Sachiko and the rest of the gang will believe you with how much corruption exudes your body. At best they will flay you alive. Come on. You are free now."Mari looks at the door and then to herself. Then at the door. She stands up.She walks shakily yet you have no intention of stopping her.But she stopped at the door."No...."She returns to her seat slumping"Why would i return in my pathetic state anyway. Even Sachiko didn't approach me when i feel down. I just kept it to myself."The negativity slowly ramping up helping with yourself as Mari continues to murmur."I'm....going to die alone anyway so what is the point. Just.....let me die in the corner"Mari for all her dignity is pretty much lonely. Her highest negativity which is loneliness exudes from her being feeding your shadows as they slowly promoted from Shadowshades into Shadowbane clinging to Mari as her mental health deteriorating.>Leave her be...she is broken>Proceed with the plan>Make adjustments with the plan with Okada>Write-in
>>3172280>Leave her be...she is brokenWOW, she does have some sort of honor!>Make adjustments with the plan with OkadaWell, she is already being drained by the shadowbanes, lets wait for them to fully consume them and when she dies we throw her on the plane and make it crash.>Even Sachiko didn't approach me when i feel down. I just kept it to myself."Oh shit, we could try to twist her to work for us or at least see if we can fabricate the thing that happened to okada on the top floor.

Hammer it home until her highest negative emotion is overwhelmingly guilt>Manipulate her loneliness "But if come back to make it up to me, I might not abandon you like the others did">Finally kill her, pumping her full of extra corruption. If she undergoes the same process you did (perhaps in an attempt to assuage her guilt to 'come back and make it up to you') she'll be fueled by the guilt of what she did to us as her primary emotion/driver>Best case scenario we get a loyal lapdog and she suffers forever as our servant trying desperately to earn a forgiveness we will never give.
>>3172253Shit man, don’t force yourself for our sake. >>3172280>ask about Yuu. >”How could you even think of violating Yuu like that. She was my friend, my best friend.”Use this as a jumping off point into. >>3172416Afterwards>Adjust the plan with Okada accordingly. Either we have a corpse to dispose of or a new serving to be indoctrinated to the dark queen. I kind of like the idea to prove that despite being a monster now we are still better than her.

>>3172294>>3172296>>3172416>>3172454>>3172487"What about Yuu? What did you do to her.""We...we just want to let her get over it. We removed it so she would move on immediately. I don't even know what is happening on her right now""So you want to just...die in a corner?"Mari didn't respond."You know, if you didn't suggest a thing maybe we could have defeated that shadow. Or die together. Yet what happened. My friend is grieving which you remove it from her. I wouldn't be surprised if your meeting is getting lesser and lesser. What was it? Every afternoon at the corner of the cafeteria table? Yet look at you now. All alone and now a corruptive person. How does it feel to be lonely Mari?"".......it hurts.""That it was like for me when that shadow swallowed me whole Mari. I was there for eternity floating for god knows where. But hey maybe if you make it up to me, I might not abandon you like others did."Mari perks up a little but then deflated to her pathetic state. Yet her voice remained hopeful."R-really?""Yeah.....first step."DIE FOR ME>Roll 1d100 to convert a person. If the lowest DC is 50 Mari is automatically killed due to corruption overdose.

>>3172632rolls are still roll under soooooo.......
>>3172655so if i hadn't roll that 1 the 73 would have killed mari?
>>3172674no, because the lowest would have been my 3, which is under 50 (source: I'm good at numbers like that)
>>3172674if your rolls are live above 50 up then it would kill Mari but considering you just roll very low well.....enjoy your new minion.
>>3172699...the lowest roll from the three of us was a 1
>>3172655Wait are we rolling under, over or avoiding 50 confused if I should roll or not
>>3172629>>3172632>>3172633Your hand grasp Mari head but her face was not of fear. But of resignation. She already resigned to her fate. You are not taking from Mari but you are now empowering her strongest negative emotion. She starts to scream as dosage of corruptive energy enters in every holes that her body has until it blanketed her whole body. Removing your hand the cocoon-like state of Mari is like an egg waiting to be hatched. To be honest if she dies, you don't care yet for some reason Mari is seeming to cling something. Something that you said that wants to be alive. As she exhumes corruption every second the cocoon starting to crack. It spread all over until you see the cocoon breaks. There she like her eyes seemingly staring like a hawk and an ever manic smile from a broken woman. Her clothes style themselves the same as you. Black. As the new Mari stands up touching her face as she seductively whispers."Ah...i would really kill for attention right now."You aren't sure what will make of her right now but..."Ah my queen.....im so sorry i thought i was alone right now. But no matter because the queen is here and im very happy. Ahihihihi."Well Mari is converted but..."What are your orders my queen."............>Report to Okada about this findings>Just....go in the corner i don't care>Follow me>Write-in
>>3172720we roll under and -in this case- if we roll over 50 mari dies, but since we had a 3 and a 1 to counter the 73, mari lived.

>>3172742but a 3 doesn't fall under a critical hit override. well whatever. we got mari and that's the important thing. although im disappointed that she doesn't seem to have reacted to the transformation in the same way as we did.
>>3172759it's phrased ambiguously, but the lowest number, between 3 and 73 is 3, and as 3 is less than 50, Mari was not kill
>>3172722>>3172731supporting>>3172759>although im disappointed that she doesn't seem to have reacted to the transformation in the same way as we didSame here, but the end result is fine by me.
>>3172730I think we should send Mari after the traffickers if she can still use her abilities. A test of sorts. It could give her a good practice before we let her near our carefully crafted schemes
"Aren't you glad? we're friends now.""Of course my queen. I'm very delighted. I will do whatever you command my mistress.""Follow me, I have someone you need to meet.""Oooooh! More friends for me? How generous my queen."You let her fall that train of thought of hers and walk away from the room. Going 2 floors up you climb again at the grand staircase and into the second floor. Opening the door to where Okada usually holes himself in you see him in calling whatever he is calling to. When he sees you he drops the call to greet you."Oh my queen welcome back and.....wait. Is this?""Yep, check her out i think i broke her too much."Okada stands up and circle Mari occasionally waving his hand on certain parts to check something. Once he was face to face with Mari which the girl smile a little crazier than normal."I don't like you old man.""That hurts, I'm your uncle you know.""Uncle? I don't have anyone but my queen.""Fascinating. Not only you broke Mari psyche, you reconstructed her being from her strongest negative emotion. The old Mari is so broken it was smattered to pieces.

IMO Mari didn't really deserve that(it was her idea to betray us) so I'm overall pretty happy with what happened. She effectively died and a new person was built on her foundation hence why I'm a fan of a very similar but ultimately new name for her.
>>3174030>(it was her idea to betray us) well, mari did show some sort of regret on her diary; it seemed like a formality more than anything, but whatever. What's done is done and there is one less on our list with three or two more to go.On that note, will we continue with the "Mari died on a plane crash" scenario or do we make her give the other girls a very angry and derogatory voice text that she will leave the country because she is not appreciated by the others and then block them on all social media?
>>3173739>Yes, MaryAfter second thought I like going full Sith Lord with this the old Mari is dead but she will have to be use to hearing her old name due to our stealth focus.

>>3174100We might need to sleep eventually, but we’ve absorbed a ton of energy and need to keep stricking while the iron is hot. >Investigate YuuI councur with the other anon. We need to win Yuu over. The faster she is out of the way, the faster we can get back to our other targets. Specifically Rei. Thanks for the run today.
hmm i was rereading the last posts and i got a question.Do we have to implant Mari's old memories into Mary? Okada said that we rebuilt her from her broken psyche, but i'm not sure if this also means that she is a social blank slate that has no real recollection of her old life.
>>3174121>>3174132>>3174152The time is still midnight so best chance Yuu is now sleeping on her house. Good thing you already know where her house is. Going outside of the manor you jump from the cover of darkness and tall sky scrapers until you arrive in front of your home. Walking a little ways on your left is you friends house. Jumping on your roof house you peek Yuu's room to see it turned off. Jumping on the window you hang onto the ledge and slowly open Yuu window and sneak inside. You see her room still the same as ever. Checking the room she has still her collection of stuff animals yet there is one particular doll that stands out of your sight. It was you and Yuu with their hands holding together. While the doll is sweet you still elect to see Yuu room is. Looking around your desk you see....your phone. You snatch it to see if it still works and it did. It's fully charged too. Yuu must have been charging your phone. You have practically the same model anyway. The rest of the room have the same things you can find from a student. Bookshelf on the top, her bag slung over the side, unfinished (or finished) homework and her camera that sits in the desk. You remember Yuu taking your pictures even if you didn't want to leaving her with stolen pics too many to count. Leaving the desk you go near Yuu sleeping face. She is stressed but relaxed right now. You still feel her burning hope inside her and your inside begging you to do something>Wake Yuu>Leave a note>Strangle her in her sleep DO IT DO IT DO IT!!!>Write-in

>>3177038She is the only one I want to spare actual torture and murder but she still has to repent and before all, to remember. We managed to convert Mari and our goal should be to do the same to Yuu, if possible willingly.

(maybe a note saying read me in Mari's handwriting? in the off chance she doesn't take the hint? she's our friend so we'd know if we needed the note or not)(I'm assuming we had enough free time to have browsed the whole thing anyway. if not we just make a shadow copy for ourselves to read if it's possible to xerox it?)>Check on our mom. Maybe give her a hug?>See what's going on in Rei's area.
>>3177067>she still has to repent.repent for what?for not looking hard enough?I do agree that she should join us willingly, but what you are trying to do will break her in a similar fashion to mari.
>>3177070well, we have all of mari's memories in our...mind or soul or whatever, so the diary should be irrelevant right now,
>>3177082Break her? No. Make her feel bad? Sure. You're acting like we've already forgiven her. We haven't. We're a big ball of rage and angst and while we have a soft spot for our best friend, we still want her to suffer like we are suffering.
>>3177067I think the angle we were going for is we don't think Yuu was in on the plan. As in she expected a retreat, but not actually leaving us to die as part of the retreat plan.Given how much crap we supposedly used to come up with in a tag team we probably could have done something like tripped it up with a shield, gotten buffed by Yuu, and run the hell away.
>>3177098>You're acting like we've already forgiven her. We haven't. The problem is that there is nothing to forgive because she was the only one that tried to help us and find closure to this whole fiasco. We might be a ball of rage, but we are still very logical; we know from the diary and mari's memories that Yuu was innocent in our murder and they were planning to mindwipe her at one point. We'd have to be very blindsided to focus our anger on her.
Ok i think there are some disagreements so i'll make a vote again>Leave a note (what)>Leave a copy of Mari handwriting about Yuu>Write-in
>>3177324>Write-in>Leave a note saying "They lied to you, yuu.">Leave a transcript of Mar's diary where they say that the girls tried to edit her memories.
>>3177337I was kinda going for making it look like Mari left her diary to Yuu out of guilt so that it might not be obvious to our victims that we're back, but close enough if nobody else tries that.
>>3177352this also works. transcript or diary is the same-ish.
Leaving a note would make Yuu notice that you didn't disappear at all although deep inside your being has thirst to just end it but she is your friend. And if anything Mari's journal is any indication then she was still your friend till the very end. Not until they did something to Yuu. Then remembering something you summoned your shadow notebook that your left in Mari's apartment two days ago. You rip a page where they did something to Yuu and you rip another page of blank paper. Getting some pen from Yuu's pen can you started writing.>They lied to you Yuu. Read this.">P.S. after reading this burn it.>-JunkoPutting the note from Mari journal and your personal note at the top on the table where she will easily see the note. Opening the window again a gust of wind momentarily stop you from jumping out. Looking one last time on Yuu sleeping face her expression is sad. Then she mutters something that you hear very clearly."Junko....don't leave me."Closing your eyes you also whisper to yourself not to wake her up." One day....we'll be together.....forever."You jump away from Yuu house and out of the place. You were tempted to visit your house and see your mother but you will stick to your plan. As long as she is hoping for you waiting at that door you will return. Just not now............Returning to the manor you immediately go to Okada room to check things out. Opening the door you see him alone. Mary is probably out doing her job clearing those pesky criminals that try to take her."Oh my queen welcome back. I have pinpointed the ones who are operating such racket and it was tied to a Yakuza gang who sells kidnapped boys and girls to rich people for....entertainment. One thing for sure is they are targeting high school girls to be sold as prostitute for rich people. Don't worry Mary is doing her job. In fact i'm looking forward for the morning news about the massacre. No doubt you will be harvesting a lot of negativity today.""Right....so what is your opinion about your niece being a shadow.""I don't have any right to say since im just a shadow but the more allies we have the better. The question is when all of these done what will you do?""......""For now sleep my queen for this is a long day for you. Tomorrow i know you have a lot to do. So rest for now.""I'll do that. Goodnight."Going to your room you just throw yourself on the bed and let your eyes close heavy from the happening that happened today........."-ueen""Qu----n wake up."Opening your eyes from the annoying voice that sounds like helium you see Mary with all sorts of blood all over her clothes and her face."My queen i killed everyone. Everyone screamed some played with me and i won! Did i do good my queen?"Is this going to be your morning? A minion with a mentality of a 10 years old still...>Yes you did good>Leave me aloneThe time currently is late morning and you have a lot to do....>Go somewhere (where?)>Investigate (who?)>Write-in

I think we can combine both options >>3177637>>3177641
>>3177608>Did you kill everyone or only the Yakuza?>If everyone: You didn't need to hurt the people that didn't do anything but an A for effort.>If just the Yakuza:Good Mary. Pat head.(Gotta train her to make sure she goes for the targets we want.) It would do no good if we want a person to escape to tell others and spread the fear.>@Odaka. See to it that the clients cannot bribe their way out of the normal consequences. The powerful suddenly having to face consequences for their actions brings out an amazing amount of fear and rage. If anyone questions it you can always imply that they were stupid enough to target your niece and her little plane trip is to recuperate from the stress she's been caused.>Train with Mary
>>3177637>>3177641"Yes, yes you did good Mary."You put your hand on her head and pat it gently she literally purrs from your touch as you keep patting her head. She seemed like a domesticated cat who like attention to his masters. "They were bad people. You don't remember them but they were going to hurt you. They hurt other people too. Speaking of which did....you kill everyone?""No no my queen. I only kill the one who attacks me, tries to attack me and the ones shouting at me. There are naked girls too but i didn't attack them. I feel their fear and i just leave them be."Feeling relieve that she didn't massacre the whole building or whatever hold she was fighting for you continue to pat her head. But all good thing must come to an end. Removing your hand, she is making sad noises but you dismissed it as you have something to say."Follow me to the forest. We gonna see your arsenal and maybe spar a little bit.""Oh! we going to play my queen? let's do it."As giddy as she sounds you decide to go to the forest. Very quiet and away from the city too. As both of you jump from alley to alley avoiding public places or people in general you managed to go out of the city and into the forest. The distance itself is enough to warm you up."Ok Mary here is what we gonna do."Mary nods her head in anticipation waiting for every words you say."We're going to spar but when i say stop you stop attacking alright?""Ok my queen. I'll do my best."Both of you get a good distance to each other,"When i count to 3 the match starts.3.....2.....1....GO!"Mari rushes to you with manic smile in her face. Seems she likes it up close and personal.

Dropping your shields replacing the one that were destroyed as you try to flank her. Having an angle you drop two swordbolts on her way which she skids on a stop and dodge the one but forced to guard the last bolt. She blocked with with her two arms and she grinned.

Hey corruptor, one question. The SHAPESHIFTING (MARI) skill says we are the perfect replica of mari, essentially being herself before we corroded her. Does this means we also have access to her magical girl abilities? or we can only use a corrupted set like how it happened to ours?
>>3178353You can't use her MG powers. Just her appearance and her mannerism only. Just purely for social interaction purposes.
>>3178325>>3178338>>3178347Using the trees as covers from the oncoming barrage of shadow arrows you made your shields into stepping stone hopping from tree to tree making the shadow arrow hit the trees instead. While Mary keep pumping her shadow arrows to your position, you keep circling around nearer and nearer as branches snaps from the arrow and smaller trunks being cut in half. Seeing an opening you rushed on Mary.

>>3178819>Investigate SashikoSeems like Mary in her previous life had some sort of friendship with her and yet she didn't help Mari when she was alone. She might be a nice target while yuu processes the information we left her.
>>3178819can you give us a list of the other MGs and a list of locations of interest like popular parks or the school or somewhere to cause distractions? amusement park, maybe
>>3178819>Investigate ReiWe need to demoralize Sashiko by taking out her pet and do it before they get on guard.We also need to get stronger.>Could we try and practice a holy barrier to cloak us from getting pinged while we go out and absorb the fear from the aftermath of Mary's rampage? Mary looks like she got an insane powerup from what she did last night.What day of the week is it atm? I'm sure I'll lose track soon enough, but i'm wondering about the chances of getting stopped by a truant officer.
>>3178819>Alter our appearance enough to pass as a random person.>Investigate Rei (considering how close they are as friends they might live close together) and Sachiko if an opportunity presents itself.We are definitely going to have to train Mary. She is strong, in fact, far stronger than I thought she would be. Her endurance and tactics are lacking. If she was smart she would have tried to shoot the shields out from under us when we ran for the treeline or used her own shadowspawn to pull us back in.There is also the matter of her cover story. We might want Okada to hold off on the plane cover-up. Instead, just get a burner phone and text the other girls pretending to be Mari. Tell the girls that there was an attempted kidnapping and your not safe in town. You are being sent away for a couple of months while your Uncle deals with it discreetly.Finally I'm curious about something we did at Mari's apartment. We summoned a miniature black hole to clean up the mess. We might want to figure out how to weaponize that as we train. While I doubt could use it to just suck up enemies (that might be OP) we could probably use it to off balance gravity to mess up our opponent's coordination and footwork. The other advantage it it could mess up the trajectory or absorb projectiles.
>>3178857>We are definitely going to have to train Mary.It seems like we overrode her previous memories and personality with whatever is on her head right now. The good thing is that we have Mari's personality within us. Maybe we should try to transfer a copy of them back to her to see if she regains somesort of logical awareness. And to be honest, i feel we will get very tired of her being our lapdog pretty soon
>>3178857I almost forgot about that. We could basically tell the "truth" about an attempt on Mari. Let some "bodyguards" explain they happened to be in the area and rescued her, and everyone else will connect the dots to Odaka hiring some guys in revenge instead of us while there's no actual evidence that can get him convicted. Then that explains why Mari has been sent away since she's too traumatized.
>>3178887we can also add some bitterness and discord to the story. When the girls ask to see her again, have mari respond that the girls never really cared for her before and that she wishes to separate herself from them.
>>3178857>Tell the girls that there was an attempted kidnapping and your not safe in town>weaponize black holegood ideas>>3178867>transfer a copy of them backwould probably lessen our power.I rather have her as a random minion, albeit powerful.In general, I also would want someone to talk to on a more equal level, and a properly corrupted Yuu would fit that better.
>>3178890Not sure we're that good of an actor and it sounds pretty hypocritical coming from the person that came up with plan to let one of the others die.Maybe play up Mari's guilt over it instead?
>>3178893>would probably lessen our power.Why would it do that? we are just giving mary a copy of her original memories back; we are not losing anything at all. Or do you mean something else with the lessen power stuff?>>3178894But we have the real mari here. she just have to let her real emotions regarding her relationship with the other girls flow(with some restraint of course. we don't want her making death threats and giving them clues that something is wrong)
>>3178900>Why would it do that?I guess if it would be so simple as to be able to make copies of stuff it would have been pointed out already.
>>3178911technically it should be; we just have to be creative with the powers we have.We know from experience with Mari that syphoning someone else's memories doesn't erases the original. We are also capable of reestructuring someone else's psyche and seemingly destroy or erase the original personality or parts of it(i'm not so sure with the memory because we don't have that much data on it) SO, I'm not saying its going to be easy, but we should be able to transfer memories. we have the tools, we just need to know how to use them.
>>3178867I'm not sure how much Mari's personality and memories would help Mary. Considering she was a total coward. She was probably a rubbish fighter, but cautious. Mary is pretty much the inverse. I don't mind her a long term project. She is basically the Vader to our Palpatine. The problem is that we have our barely constrained monster of a minion when our strength is striking out from the shadows as unknown entity. The advantage is that Mary is totally loyal to us to a fault. We sacrifice some autonomy but the loyalty is worth it and we can always motivate her with attention.
>>3178949>I'm not sure how much Mari's personality and memories would help MaryIdeally her experiences as Mari should help Mary be more cautious, tactical and balance her new berserker attitude that she has right now. It should also help her>The advantage is that Mary is totally loyal to us to a fault.I don't think that giving her her old memories will change that since Mari willingly gave herself to us, she was already a broken mess before we kidnapped her and we wouldn't be overriding her current personality; we'd just be adding extra information to Mary's brain so she can think a little bit more on her fights and that she can go undercover as Mari whenever we need it.
>>3178900Real Mari strikes me as a worse actor than we are, though I suppose her insanity might count as a plus. I think we might need to just allocate a shadow to pose as a scared NEET version of her and semi cloak the room so that means the other girls don’t intervene with whatever shadowspawn they would logically think she’s spawning.
>>3179111In that case it would be better for us to do the acting. After all, we can literally become mari -voice, mannerisms and all- by just willing it.
>>3178996I understand what you’re getting at. It’s a risk vs time (the reward in this case) dichotomy. I think we should try to train her normally but if things go poorly we could always try this. I just don’t want to risk a vauble minion needlessly. Of course we could always practice on more disposable subjects. Imagine some girl jealous of Mari shadowed up running around reeking havoc dressed up like Mari. That could be a good distraction. As for using Mari to infiltrate the girls, that’s kind of out of the question. She is corrupted enough to sniff out and crazy. The former is true for us too. That’s why I want some reason for her to be out of the picture without the girls suspecting anything. If we want a mole we try to turn Yuu without corrupting her.
>>3179158>As for using Mari to infiltrate the girls, that’s kind of out of the question.Well yeah, but there should also be other events or situations where going as mari instead of mary will be more beneficial. but i disgress. >That’s why I want some reason for her to be out of the picture without the girls suspecting anything.we can definitely go with your plan though; after all we can be mari whenever we want. The idea of giving mary her previous memories were mostly to give some stability to her berserk personality.
>>3178841>>3178855>>3178857so we are investigating Rei nowwriting
Going outside you opt to investigate one of your ex-teammates. Rei Fukuda. For all you know Rei likes books and likes to hole herself in library when she has free time with the exception when Mari drags her out of the room to hang out with you. Well now you know Mari insistence of grouping the whole gang. While it would be lunch break on the school but still will you risk going inside the school? There is still your shapeshifting power so blending with students won't be a problem. Just not to get caught with teachers you know? And while you can't really brood on a nearby tree since it would be stupid. And everyone could see you from a distance away.Well there are many ways but how?>Go inside in school as another student>Sneak insideDANGER!! CORRUPTIVE AURA>Hold out for now and wait till school is out>Write-in
>>3179200>Could we snoop on her house before she gets home?If not >wait, shapeshift to a random person and tail her. >>3179188No I agree. That’s why I think we need a less permanent albi than the plane crash. We can’t plan for all possibilities and we’ve been caught flat footed once before. I was thinking about teaching Mary shapeshifting as a way to avoid discovery.
>>3179200>Hold out for now and wait till school is out
>>3179200changing from this >>3179212 to >snoop on her house before she gets home.>>3179210>I was thinking about teaching Mary shapeshifting as a way to avoid discovery.That sounds insteresting
>>3179200>snoop on her house before she gets home?
>>3179132But do we have time to play mari when we wanna be plotting revenge instead? Her parents might understandably want to keep closer tabs on her if they hear something like she was nearly kidnapped and raped.
>>3179290we wouldn't be playing as mari forever. Just a quick call from us to her parents and then Okada jumps in, says that he has everything under control and has us in a safehouse, but due to safety reasons we can't comunicate for the time being. boom, problem solved.
>>3179294They're her parents. Even they aren't so distant that they wouldn't try to comfort their only child after that. They at least cared enough to try and steer her away from Odaka.
>>3179300Mari didn't have that much of a good relationship with them; we could use thie oportunity to separate mari from them.>They at least cared enough to try and steer her away from Odaka.They did? because from what i remember it was Mari who decided to isolate herself because nobody gave her attention. Even her parents; they only gave her money.
>>3179309Yeah, but they still tried to keep Odaka away from her. Dude's been a shadow for so long that even their parental alarm bells apparently went off.
>>3179318what if we fake a mental breakdown then? We say that we are sick and tired of everyone and their fake friendship and that we want to travel around the world alone. That way mari can still return and while people will be somewhat worried, they won't go to the police because we decided to explore the world
>>3179327That’s a fine contingency plan. We could also have Okada tell them that need to fly out to see Mari and they go sightseeing at the bottom of the ocean. If worst comes to worse we can introduction Mari’s parents to Bloody Mary. I’m sure that meeting will go swimmingly as well.
>>3179327We used to think we were friends and that goes back to the fake friendship line being hypocritical earlier. Maybe just fake some story about somebody finding her a few days later since the kidnappers all got slaughtered and she was stuck tied up without food or water? Odaka then gave her some medical care in secret so that the family name doesn't get tarnished. Maybe her condition (medical and physical) is too unstable? The parents go visit a shadowling faking itself as Mari and the parents would get in the way of the girls trying to visit her at the secret insane asylum they probably don't know the location of anyway. The MG group didn't check on our mom. As long as there's a small obstacle in their way they won't break in to see Mari.It gets rid of Odaka being able to generate extra fear from people who "know" what he sent those Yakuza but we probably dont want to power him up anyway.Maybe we really should just go with the plane crash plan? Odaka can make up a fake identity for Mary as some secret love child to explain any family resemblance.
>>3179210>>3179212>>3179221>>3179222>>3179231Snooping on her house before she gets home wins. Writing
>>3179363it has too many unknown factors and the police would have to interrogate Okada and mari. We should stick to either Mari died on a plane crash, or Mari had a mental breakdown and decided to cut communications and fuck off to god knows where.
Snooping on her home would be a good idea. It would be similar to Mari except that she isn't there. She also goes home late as she is always "lost in time" when reading her books. Sometimes you wonder why she is insistent on reading books most of the time. Going to Rei's home is easy as it is also located in one of residential town just on the other side of the part of town from where you live. Her parents are scholars from the country so most of the time her parents aren't home. Maybe their scholastic views rubs on Rei which in turn have interest in books. The question is what books Rei likes to read.Now you are curious.....Arriving at Rei's home is a little bit bigger than yours or Yuu's home. The only thing that makes it big is because of their mini library and study for her father's research or anything to study about. Opening their unlocked back window you squeezed yourself until you get inside the house. Standing and dusting yourself from imaginary dirt you have you have the house to explore for yourself.>You are currently on the Kitchen/Dining room>See Rei's room right to the source>See the study room. There's going to be bound something that interest Rei>Go to the fridg- no no you are not hungry....but.....>Living room....wait what are you doing here>Write-in
>>3179459>See Rei's room right to the source
>>3179395Yeah, I'm overthinking. Plane crash and make a fake id for Mary at most. If there is some paper trail showing Mari was a target, Odaka can claim she managed to escape.>>3179459>Rei's roomWe actually forgot to notice if there was a car/bike in the driveway?
Going to Rei's room would be beneficial. Maybe you find clues from the day you disappeared. Going to the second floor you arrive where a cute nameplate that says Rei's room. Opening the room is what you expect from a girls room....except with bookshelves and books. Closing the door you take a look around her room. On the side of the door is two room sized bookshelves that goes up to the ceiling. Then there is her desk on one corner of the room and her drawer no doubt some clothes and some underwear. On another corner of the room is her bed and another door which you can guess her dresser where she kept her winter clothes and maybe some extra futons. She has a window balcony although covered with curtains and beside the dresser is her bathroom.Well which you should start?>Bookshelves you are curious what Rei is reading>Desk. Maybe Rei kept a similar journal like Mari?>Write-in
>>3179612>Bookshelves you are curious what Rei is reading
>>3179612Forgive my paint skills. I haven't invested 9000 hours for me to be considered good enough but i hope this is sufficient to explain what Rei room is like.
>>3179612>Bookshelves you are curious what Rei is readingProbably Hentai
>>3179612Bookshelves, take special notice of any notepads. Maybe she wrote down types of spells she was thinking up?Her parent's are general scholars/researchers? What are the chances she has magical girl history books somewhere in the house?
>>3179617>>3179636>>3179732Browsing through her bookshelves you see rows upon rows of encyclopedia and some fact books. From the kids version to some Almanac and some books of world records and such. Going on the second bookshelf near the door to the bathroom its another set of books about history of different timeline in japan and some novels of it. Going higher is some manga of some historical series that you heard about when Yuu kept talking about cute boys and stuff that you barely paid attention to. Yet there is one book that sticks out horizontally. Getting a chair you immediately reach for it to see.....Your face gone tomato red as the cover itself is two boys hugging each other naked. It has a similar books hidden up there no doubt a series. You put it back again from where it belongs your poor heart is too weak to open the contents itself.Finished with your episodic comedy itself. You decided to come down bring the chair back to its original place and compose yourself. Looking at the desk it seems normal. Seems she doesn't keep something personal for herself or she carrying it around. Still you have a whole house to search for although the drawer of her desk is locked. Still you have a house to search for....>See the study room.>The fridge you----NO! bad shadow down!!>Living room......maybe something is here?>Write-in
>>3179900>Write-in>Leave several hidden shadows to boost Rei's negative emotions. Like lust.>The fridge you----NO! bad shadow down!!Fine inner shadow, we're gonna raid the fridge. TO THE KITCHEN
>>3179908>>3179912>>3179913The inner shadow of Junko approves of your actions.Writing....
>>3179977Leaving a similar action for Rei, you taint her BL novels heck you tainted her whole bookshelves and then some on her desk. You only put a little bit of it so it would not alarm Rei with your actions. Satisfied with your work you go down stairs. But the shadow growls. You go to the living room and your inner shadow growls louder. Sighing you go to the kitchen and it made.....happy noises? Stepping all around the dining room and some gentle tugging you arrive at Fukuda's fridge.Is this how your revenge ends up? Raiding an ex-teammate fridge to satisfy your inner demon? Opening the door fridge you see some cut vegetable on a plasticware and some eggs, water, sodas, juices and hey is that a muffin? You like muffin. Getting the muffin you happily eat the sweet pastry. If anything is worthwhile with Rei is that she is good with her muffins. But alas all yummy things must end. As you gobble the last of the muffins you drink the last soda. Satisfied both inside and yourself you close the fridge door and....."I'm hoooooooooooooome."Oh crap Rei is too early!! Gulping down the contents of the soda you think of what to do in this situation.>Hide! I mean with her house this big she won't notice a thing right?>Get out of here!! And no one will be wiser.>Write-in
>>3179991>Hide! I mean with her house this big she won't notice a thing right?d100?
>>3179991>Get out of here!! And no one will be wiser.
>>3179991I'm not too sure of the layout, but since we already use shields and stepping stones and the kitchen window was unlocked to begin with, couldn't we basically jump out the window while disguised without making any noise from galumphing all over the counters to get out?
>>3179998i can give you the layout just give me a minute
>>3180001If you have to show me a map the it's probably a bad idea.>Write in. Summon a shadowling to use as a distraction while we exit. Even if she discovers us tainting her books, it's better than being caught or being forced to unceremoniously kill her off. Since we didn't corrupt them much she might mistake it for her mom or dad being a bit too much into her books after checking up on her room.
>>3179998Here is the layout
>>3180010depending on doors or open hallways we could dance around herI'm still on hiding to observe her.first disguise as a random burglar though, even if she catches us, she won't be able to tell.what are Rei's weapons again?
>>3179991>disguise yourself as a homeless person. Would explain the food stealing.>Get out of here!! And no one will be wiser.Jump out window the window a little magical girl parkour and we are good. >leave a shadowling as a distraction only if needed. Anon why did you have to touch the shiny button? This was a sneaking mission but not a procure on sight one.Fixed the spelling because autocorrect.
>>3180016Not sure how the shadowlings know our orders. We could have our metaphorical muffin and eat it too if we don't have to speak to it.It hides somewhere if we manage to escape without being seen?I think it might be a good idea to retreat to the boat. The yacht probably has a phone we can call Odaka with to have a sailor take us elsewhere and prevent her from following us.
>>3179994>>3179995>>3180006>>3180033roll 1d100 best of 3 getting out of the window without Rei noticing

>>3180052You saved us from crashing into a wall and powering trough it.
>>3180046we can sleep on the slums tonight. It also has the benefit of us being lost between the general aura of despair that is being constantly generated.

>>3180097I'm sure Odaka is a slumlord too. Ask for a safehouse if we go for the slums. preferably near Mary's massacre?
>>3180098Sneaking out of the open window you jump with your feet first and smoothly goes through the backyard. You close the window quietly as you see Rei approaching to the kitchen. As you sneak away from her house you hear a scream that probably make you the culprit."MY MUFFIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN"As you jump away from Rei's house you burst out laughing that you have to stop on one rooftop to bust a laugh on how Rei wailed on her muffins. That is rich coming from her. As your laughter dies down you keep jumping around until you arrive at the mansion where you immediately go to your room.The day is late afternoon and you left Rei in tears as you eat her last muffin in the fridge. Truly a worthy endeavor of your revenge.....even if it is a childish one. Still you might go back to her house. There are a lot of thing you still want to know about Rei. Well except for her taste that is....>Go somewhere (where?)>Investigate (who?)>Write-in

Complete with an OH YEAH>FML>>3180047We can probably get back to Okada's Place fine which also obscures shadows. We have unfinished business with and Mary might be up to have a talk.
>>3180107Goddamit man. Its the middle of the night here and yet here i am giggling like an idiot thanks to your greentext. >Write-inCheck on Mary to see how she's faring from our spar.
We need to learn more about magical girls and this so called prophecy. Rei's parents wold normally be the first to try and make do research, but it seems a dumb idea to put information that close to the enemy.Any ideas on what sort of person we could reliably ask to do that sort of research for us?Maybe one of the parents of any of the victim's Mary saved is a prestigious archeologist? Show him proof of magic/shadows and warn him/her to not be obvious that he/she got a tip about magic being real? If nothing else, then pointing out that at least one of the more powerful people in the city (not saying whom) is a walking corpse full of evil should make them think twice before drunkenly talking about magic being real.We need some way to plot outside of where Odaka leads us.>>3180105>Investigate the news on Mary's massacre. >Soak up a little bit of the horror too.
>>3180105>>Go somewhere (where?)>Back to Okada's. Inform the girls of Mari's kidnapping and her little vacation away.>Afterwards find a hairbrush in the place and offer to brush Mary's hair. Let her do the same for you.(I was thinking of something girls might do at sleep over. I have never been to one, nor been a girl.)>Talk to Mary "Mary you're really strong, but I was really strong when I was alive. Look how far that got me. A bad plan will get you killed and power is nothing without the stamina to wield it or control over it. You dying would make me really sad. I meant what I said before you were "born". I want us to be friends. So lets work hard so nothing can come between us. Also Mary what would you think about more friends? More friends means more attention. We could do stuff like this more often. I wish it could have been like this without me dying though.">see if she is up to some light non-combat training. Shapeshifting --start off slow if she has a hard time (try changing her hair color to our black) Could feeding Mary some of the shadows that Mari spawned help with her endurance problems?Any anons have an idea for another Yuu note? Do you think its too early for a face to face meeting?Thanks for the run Corrupter.
>>3180135>Any anons have an idea for another Yuu note? Do you think its too early for a face to face meeting?We should wait until next week so she can properly make assumptions on her own. On the meantime we should train, retrain mary so some of her logical self returns and i don't know, see how are we going to deal with our inner shadow? At least we know it likes food.
>>3180135Let Yuu make her own reactions.We'd probably end up doing a Yuu POV thread eventually anyway.
ARE YOU REALLY A MAGICAL GIRL!!!
something came up so i can't run today but i'll try to give and update or two. Sorry about it.
>>3180111>>3180122>>3180135You are curious about the stunt Mary did early in the morning so you tune in on the T.V. to see the report. Opening the T.V. the news channel reporting something on the field.>-ther as of now the police is drawing a blank for the incident. Some say it is one of the Yakuza gang trying to establish some dominance, others wanted a business takeover but for now we weren't permitted to go inside the premises as the police and paramedics are checking for survivors. Back to you Ritsu-san>We interrupt this program as we have obtained a leaked footage of a cctv prior to the event where the massacre was held. For those children who watches right now parental guidance is advised. The following footage is very violent so viewer discretion is advised.What follows is a group of Yakuza on the end of the hallway firing their pistols on the unknown assailant which is Mary obviously. Yet the camera was only fixed on the Yakuza group. Suddenly one goes down as you see a shadow arrow stuck on the head of the yakuza member while the other one's arm were decapitated and screaming for pain. The remaining 2 kept firing when the rightmost guy head was sliced and the last guy limbs and arms were cut leaving his torso squirming as he losses blood quickly then you see a shadow that goes closer and the CCTV feed was cut off.>As you can see there was something happening as a blurred person was the sole responsible of taking out a whole Yakuza gang. We are still verifying the report if this is the same person who taken out a whole building full of people or just a synchronized attack by a group. For now we will standby for new information pertaining this incident.Then it switches to three people commenting on the incident.>As you can see people can get violent these days that it is due time for the police to step up their restrictions to these gangs. While they are a legitimate company in a surface, they also dabble in underground business and wetworks that a common citizen is scared. The whole town is scared about this incident.>Not to worry about it as it is just a rival gang going to another rival gang. The citizen is safe as long as they don't affiliate with the said two gangs. It is best for people especially at night to take extra precautions most notably for children who are going home late.>We can let them be i think for this is a problem between two groups. As long as the don't bother the common citizen then it's all fine.>You two are very optimistic. This is a matter of civil security. This is not a time to be lenient. If those people can kill such brutality as that then they aren't person anymore. They are monsters.The three commentator devolved into arguments about the safety of the neighborhood and the possibility of a group attacking the establishment.(1/4)
"But my queen. You are alive though. And if there is something going to hurt you. I'm going to kill them. I don't care if i'm defeated but i will make sure i get to defend my only friends.""While that is nice to hear, we need to make your stamina and endurance longer so you would not be tired when doing things like we do.""But my queen, whenever i kill a person it....empowers me. I feel like i get more energy that it used to.""Really....">MARY SKILL DISCOVERED: BATTLE JUNKIE - For every kill gives her energy to replenish her stamina. Energy includes fear, despair, pain, anger and loss."Still we can't rely on things like that. While it was good for people like humans do. A magical girl is a different opponent. They may be alone but they pack a mean punch and has stronger durability. And also are the anti-theses of us. Shadows.""Ooooh! Now that is exciting my queen. So when will you fight someone like that? I would like to play with her."Now to think about it. If you manage to ambush like Rei whereas Mary would hide and try to snipe. It would be viable. Yet the question is how accurate Mary is for a one shot kill."How about you brush me too?"Switching positions Mary start to slowly brush your jet black hair. The brush smoothly comb through your hair as Mary hums herself enjoying the gesture. This keeps on as Mary slowly brush every section of your hair with glee.(2/4)
*Earlier in the morning*>As all 5 of you gathered on the shadow with Junko on your side, Sachiko immediately commands retreat. Rei was the first to bail out dishing every elemental spells on the shadow as Junko and you tries to hold the giant shadow on its position. Sachiko brandishes a gun which is an early springfield weapon as she summon the gun and fire and summon another gun again throwing the out of ammo rifle. Suddenly Mari yanked you out of Junko position. You can't hear Mari was saying but you see Junko struggling to hold out of the shadow. The last thing you see as Mari kept dragging you away to her was Junko is swallowed whole. And you shouted...."JUNKO!!"Heavy breaths and sweat was felt on your body. After getting the phone from the forest. You keep getting these nightmares over and over again. Covering your face with your hands as you slowly sniffle on how you missed Junko. These past few days were hectic and the group barely keep going to your hangout in the corner of the cafeteria. Drying whatever is on your face you stand up to see Junko phone when you noticed something on the desk.>They lied to you Yuu. Read this.">P.S. after reading this burn it.>-JunkoConfused you see an entry no doubt Mari's handwriting.>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. Rei 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.You crumple the paper in anger as the three of them have taken something away from you. You don't care if you spawn shadows. You will kill them. And now with a confirmation that Junko was alive, it is a matter of time where to find her.But first you will confront Mari with this. With renewed hope and some anger in your group, you get ready for another day of school."Don't worry Junko....i'm going to save you."(3/4)
Finishing brushing both of your hairs. You stand up and thinking what should you do for the meantime.>Train yourself (what?)>Train with Mary (what?)>Send Mary (what and where?)>See Okada (what?)>Investigate (who?)>Go somewhere (where?)>Write-in
>>3182122Interesting that the commentators have no idea wtf the Yakuza were doing if we go by their comments about how regular citizens are safe when . Are we gonna have to leak information t the press to "undermine" the clearly crooked cops if that story doesn't change soon>>3182130>Train Black hole with Mary. She can shoot arrows in general and we can try to catch them with the black hole once we're used to summoning it quickly.>See Odaka>I believe you were asking about the future before. What information do you have about magical girls and how widespread are they? It's important to know if something like an invading force is going to come into this city. (Gotta play ball with Odaka so that his suspicions aren't raised about us offing all of the shadows after the MG troupe is dead. Researching should at the least be a legitimate excuse for why we're "wasting" time not slaughtering innocents.)>Work on the Mari alabi/story with Odaka. (Maybe add in some lines about Mari's nervous breakdown having her keep on crying and say that she was sorry in her sleep?)>Odaka , the news seems to be sweeping things under the rug. Was that a deliberate attempt to not generate as much fear, stupidity on their part, or is whatever idiot that ordered those Yakuza to target Mari specifically bribing the police to not look into them? I do not need an answer right away. The shock that the police were hiding that from them or corrupt might make things turn out better in the long term.>Do you control or have access to any prisons? I might want one as the staging ground for a battlefield so I'd like to know my options.Mari needs bodies to refuel and a prison has tons of them that we'd not feel bad about killing if it's the maximum security wing or the rapist section. It doubles as a way to demoralize the magical girls.I probably made too many requests that would cause infodumps if done at once. I guess it's stuff for us to consider for the future?
>>3182130>See Okada (what?)>Ask if he has any junk to set up rough shooting gallery in the garage. We might also need to affix targets to some of the cars and shadows to drive them.>Get a hold of three of burner phones so we can shapeshift into Mari and text the girls that "we" were kidnapped by the human traffickers and have been put into hiding for our safety. They were going to blackmail Uncle Okada and he thinks that there may be another attempt. (the shapeshifting is if they call back.)>Hold on to the second phone so we can give the number to Yuu as an emergency contact line/way to eventually schedule a meet up.>Give the third to Mary. We need a way to reach her if we are doing different things or something goes wrong.>>Train with Mary (what?)>Start off light, with some shapeshifing. Maybe practice hitting static targets if we can set up the range. (we gained a form of Mari's attacks when we drained her.)>>3182162The black hole thing is a good idea but we might work on the technique otherwise it might get messy.
>>3182174The idea was skeet shooting instead of actually shooting AT us. I was worried somebody might misread me that way so I'm not sure why I didn't rephrase it better.
>>3182176Yeah, I made that exact mistake. My idea with the cars was the exact sort of idea. Granted Okada might be just the type of rich guy in Japan that has a permit for an actual shotgun for hunting or sports shooting. So he might have access to actual equipment for skeet or trap shooting. So possible road trip?>Researching should at the least be a legitimate excuse for why we're "wasting" time not slaughtering innocentsWe have one right now as we are operating out of the shadows to take out the magical girls first. Too much violence might blow our cover. We do need to come up with something more long term but its not a pressing need.>>3182126>You will kill them. And now with a confirmation that Junko was alive, it is a matter of time where to find her.>Good, Good...Let the hate flow through Yuu.We are making good progress with her. There are two issues we need to address with her. First, we are a shadow now. So it is debatable how much she can "save" us. I think we go with the typical "Honey, I'm a vampire now but I'm totally the same person... barring the hunger and psychopathic urges." excuse. Considering how hard her the other girls fucked up she will probably go with it. Plus we can tell her that we saved people from the plague shadow and got that kidnapping ring broken up. Secondly, How broach the topic of Mary. Yuu is already considering murder. So we could tell her the truth, but that goes against the whole "I'm a monster, but totally good guys, I swear" stick. I lean to writing it off that Mari was a miserable wreck to begin with (true), She got kidnapped, torched, (both true but we did it), and violated. By the time we found her she had fallen to the shadows and was brain dead. So we revived her like us, but it failed and now she is kind of a new person. Thus Mary like Mari but a letter different. As for Mary getting bodies to refuel, we could have sparked a Yakuza gang war with her little stunt. We could send her after people that seemingly skated off on horrible crimes. That would start talks of a vigilante though.
>>3182130find out just how officially dead we are from a scientific standpoint.It's somewhat glossed over, but we do eat and sleep.can we have Okada hire a discreet doctor?If so I'd like want to look into reasons to officially revive.Maybe spin a few cops around like we were in that human trafficing ring, but don't want to have it come to light.
>>3182123ok i have a problem on this part. You see i narrated something about Mary waking up and putting >>3180135 suggestion and some conversation and for some reason 4chan ate it and that is the part where the conversation should be progressing. And the worst thing is i lost the writers block for the 1st part.Apologies in advance if you are confused by the sudden conversation here.
>>3182361oh and i dropped my trip again. Fuck my life.
>>3182123Ok for some reason Microsoft word saved me with it's Autosaver which miraculously have the first part of the conversation. I'll post the complete version of the post that was mentioned here.Turning off the T.V you decide to check on Mari to see how is she doing. The spar took a lot out of her and you are kinda worried that it may have repercussuions to her body considering she is also now a walking ball of corruptive energy. Entering her room you still see that she is asleep. Sitting beside her, you brush a strand of hair aside to see her sleeping face. While it was cute to see her sleeping she is now stirring awake and she slowly open her eyes. She sits up and stretches her body which pops off a few bones in her back. Yawning like a bear who got woken up in her hibernation she greeted you with her signature manic face."Good morning my queen!""Good morning Mary or should i say Good Afternoon. You slept for a while now Mary.""Nnn. I was too tired when i summoned a rain of arrows and the bed are comfy.""Sit down for a moment and i'll brush your hair."You stand up and go to the drawer which conviniently have a brush inside. Getting the said brush you go immediately to Mary's back and start combing her messy hair."Mary you're really strong, but I was really strong when I was alive. Look how far that got me. A bad plan will get you killed and power is nothing without the stamina to wield it or control over it. You dying would make me really sad. I meant what I said before you were "born". I want us to be friends. So lets work hard so nothing can come between us. Also Mary what would you think about more friends? More friends means more attention. We could do stuff like this more often. I wish it could have been like this without me dying though.""But my queen. You are alive though. And if there is something going to hurt you.

They may be alone but they pack a mean punch and has stronger durability. And also are the anti-theses of us. Shadows."(1/2 post too long)
>>3182368"Ooooh! Now that is exciting my queen. So when will you fight someone like that? I would like to play with her."Now to think about it. If you manage to ambush like Rei whereas Mary would hide and try to snipe. It would be viable.

The brush smoothly comb through your hair as Mary hums herself enjoying the gesture. This keeps on as Mary slowly brush every section of your hair with glee.(2/2 apologies in advance for the messy narrative. It was my fault for not proofreading before posting)
>>3182369>It was my fault for not proofreading before postingspeaking off...*looks up how to give feedback* compliment, criticism, compliment... OK I can do this.first of all I really like the quest. I've been here since the beginning.but your grammar is bad. you flip words around and disregard the - s ending for verbs when the subject is in third person and you can't always tell when a noun is plural or not, and again, use the wrong verb-form.I assume your first language is not English, mine neither, but if you want to improve someone got to tell you when you make a mistake.I offer to help, because, as I said, I like the quest and want to see its quality to rise further.
>>3182369No problem man.>>3182130>Train Black hole with Mary. She can shoot arrows in general and we can try to catch them with the black hole once we're used to summoning it quickly.>>3182162>Mari needs bodies to refuel.Not really. She can recharge on her own, but by killing someone it brings her to the top immediately. Really useful in battle, but right now her energy should be at 100% so its not needed to kill someone right now.
Do shadows normally sense other shadows? We search for them with our MG senses but Odaka somehow knew where the pokemon was. Does he have a corrupt(regular or ingame term) magical girl locked up somewhere maintaining the barrier and searching for shadows? Or even were were the latest in a line of experiments to make this dark queen of his and they're just corrupted enough to maintain a barrier?>>3182409I meant in battle with the magical girls, so Mari would Kool-Aid man through the prison while attacking magical girls, and occasionally refuel via killing a prisoner purposefully or via collateral damage. It's a battle strategy for where we set a fight vs magical girls without harming innocents, not something we're gonna do right this instant. I just figured we should foreshadow what we're doing instead of magically finding a prison.>>3182369I thought I saw something in the quest general about QMs being able to edit once. No idea is they meant on /qst/ or I missed them talking about some other board.>>3182203The researching is also really useful in knowing more about magical girls in general sort of way. We got dragged in but have no idea how or why they exist nor have any real details on the prophecy. For all we know we could be a blood sacrifice at the end to launch the world into darkness or it could tell Odaka to kill Yuu to remove our last bit of hope when the time is right. Interacting with the researcher instead of Odaka cuts out the middleman slightly. It's something I wanted to do, but also has the side benefit of delaying any misgivings Odaka might have. We don't trust him to actually have blind loyalty or if he has loyalty it's to the cause he thinks we are instead of what we actually want.The sociopath urges are pretty strong already. By the time Sachiko is dead we might end up being in berserk mode fulltime. We already had to resist the urge to kill Yuu when the idea shouldn't have popped into our head in the first place.Endgame on that front (depending on how votes go) seems to be looking to be:Too much corruption and Yuu has to take us down. MGs from some nearby city noticing the corruption spike so massive that they actually felt it from another city and helping her isn't out of the question.We're alive and still ultra corrupted, but we rule the city as a dark queen. Any shadows spawned get eaten by us and anyone dumb enough to try to do the crime here doesn't live long enough to do the time. Probably the closest to what you suggested, but I really don't like the vampire that's totally not dangerous route. It's copout 99% of the time to forget why you're supposed to be scared of them.Mutual death aka the yuribait route since Japan culturally views double suicide as romantic.Yuu (or We) purifies us.That's all assuming that we don't get a really bad end like us corrupting Yuu since we're still lucid enough to consider doing that to her as a bad thing.
>>3182671>I meant in battle with the magical girls, so Mari would Kool-Aid man through the prison while attacking magical girls, and occasionally refuel via killing a prisoner purposefully or via collateral damage. It's a battle strategy for where we set a fight vs magical girls without harming innocents, not something we're gonna do right this instant. I just figured we should foreshadow what we're doing instead of magically finding a prison.that brings too many problems and i don't think that prisons in japan can be owned by any other but the goverment. It would be easier to fight in a hospital and send mary to kill the people with terminal cancer or something like that.
>>3182720We'd feel bad about that and that means dead doctors, people dying from lack of medical care because we fucked up a hospital, too. The fear is part of what fuels her and many terminal cancer patients probably have already accepted that they're going to die. Odaka doesn't have to own a prison, he has to "own" a prison enough to funnel prisoners into the prison yard (and chain them in place) or a generally easy access location like the cafeteria. We'd get a location bonus from whatever negative emotions they naturally have from being bloodthirsty criminals, unless the girls are ruthless they'd be hampered by not trying to kill them while fighting us or the blood from us not caring, and Mary's perpetual motion engine would keep going be on nitro the whole fight.
>>3182761wouldn't it be easier to fight in a slum then? is easier to reach than some prisons, have more people with despair and the ammount of cover up that you have to do is way less.
>>3182865Slums have innocent people. We still have a enough of a conscience left to not massacre innocents.
*Lunch break at school*The group for once got together with the exception of Mari. Kanna brought something from her phone to Sachiko's face which in turn surprised Sachiko."Senpai did you see the news this morning?""Where a whole building was massacred? Yeah it was all over the news.""You see senpai i saw a leaked video. You should see it."The group huddles around to a small phone to see the leaked video Kanna was talking about. Pressing play, Sachiko and others witness a futile struggle from a group of yakuza when suddenly a shadow arrow whizzes through one poor yakuza member on the head."WAIT! Did you see that?""Yeah that is corruption no doubt. It is so black it reeks."Sachiko and Rei trying to think about something about the unknown assailant. But gave up for a bit."I'll search something when i get home. There is bound to have something from a shadow who uses it. No doubt a shadowspectre.""You do that Rei. In the meantime we need to be careful. We don't have a means to contain it since we didn't know where it went or where it is hiding. Please be extra cautious alright?"Several nods were given with the exception of Yuu."Yuu is something wrong?""I was thinking but....where is Mari?""Yeah. I'm worried about her too. Should have talk to her while i have a chance but my Teacher keeps me holding out with the pretense of helping. I swear i think that teacher has bad thoughts about me. Although when i was at the teacher's lounge i asked about Mari's whereabouts. She submitted a health excuse which i really don't know the cause. Teachers are really serious about privacy of their students so i didn't pry what kind of health ailment Mari have."Yuu lowers her head for a bit, but she pleads to the group hoping they would agree."We should visit Mari's place. Just to be sure alright?"Kanna stands up on board on visiting Mari's place."Yeah let's do it.""Sorry i'll pass. I need to see what are we dealing with.""That is ok Rei do your thing. Me, Kanna and Yuu will visit Mari's place to check her out."The bell rings and the group goes to their respective rooms. Yuu walks somberly yet with determination. Determination to find out what really happened that day. And Mari holds the answers. Yet her thoughts come back from the video she saw."Was that you Junko. I hope you're not."Shaking her head and slapping a few on her face, she goes towards to her room lest she would be late for 5th period.Will run in a few hours
>>3183076>"Was that you Junko. I hope you're not."well, she's right about that, it wasn't us.
>>3182162So what i see here is>See Okada if he has a shooting range of some sort>Try to pry if Okada has a manipulation from media>Get some burner phones to be given to Yuu, Junko and Mary>Train with Mary with your Mr. Clean stunt on Mari's apartment and in extension skeet shootingIf that is all i will start writing all of these.
>>3183320I'm not sure about giving Yuu a burner phone right now. I don't think she's ready to contact us yet.
>>3183331I'll give an option if you want to give one or not. But it's you who decide anyway.
>>3183337thanks!We are also on page 8, so you might want to make a new thread too
>>3183331I dunno how totalitarian the Japanese government is on this compared to the US where i'd be able to say with certainty but I'm personally pretty sure that even if the phone is a burner,it's akin to leaving a tracking device on us. The burner is gonna get flagged as being near a crime scene if it gets used more than once. If we use a burner it should be a one time only thing instead of a way to maintain communication. Otherwise the police could just check with the cell towers about where the suspicious unknown phone is and Odaka's house is probably big enough that they would automatically know we've been in his place. Odaka might even already be flagged by some bigwig police agency given his underworld connections, so a phone that goes into his property would be checked for being within a block or so of a crime scene..
>>3183372well, thats why they are burner phones, arent they? And in reality we'd only need to ditch the SIM card, but considering that those kind of phones come in an all in one package, well, its a moot point.
>>3183320>at okada’s mansion for the shooting practice.
>>3183391Corruptor was condensing the general direction we wanted to go, not to choose one. I think that one comes on the next post.
>>3183320"Come Mary for we have a lot to do.""Yes my queen!"Both of you walked out of the room and into Okada's office. Currently he is still counting his wads of money which you don't really care where he gets it."My Queen. Mary's parents contacted me and i said she is just fine. I just told them that she is on one of the summer houses outside of the town and currently resting there. Good thing her parents didn't pry more and i let them return to their work. They were worried that Mary's phone isn't responding to the calls so they contacted me if Mary came to me. Well technically we kidnapped her but you didn't hear it from me.""No Okada we didn't kidnap her. WE saved her from the kidnappers. And maybe showed a little ways from us. But enough about it. Do you have a private shooting range?""Well i do, in fact it is on the forest area. I have a little house there or at least little from a rich standard, it's a two storey building complete with amnesties and food enough for a month. There is a human caretaker there and he is old. He maintains the building over there and in turn i let him live there to take care whatever needs to be taken care of. If you want, you could hunt for deer there but currently that is illegal in Japan. But it doesn't say that they can be hunted on your property. It's up to you""Well go. What is the name of the caretaker?""His name is Goro Isshin. And uh...he is a very interesting fellow. You will know when you meet him.""Also i'm gonna need some burner phones. 3 of them.""Go to this store and say Okada sent you. They will give you burner phones no question asked."Okada produces a piece of paper and wrote on it. He gives it to you and you see an address which thankfully you know where it is."So did you "sway" the media just now? They seem to be.....optimistic.""Humans tend to do anything not to panic the citizens. We are doing something out of ordinary and the media is trying to contain about it. No doubt the government is trying to make sense of what is happening but currently, were safe. But if it keeps up then discreetness will blow out of the water and i wouldn't be surprised if we are placed under martial law. Not that it matters to me since i have personal leeway and in extension. You too my queen."You glare at Okada that if you have laser eyes it would bore through his skull and then some. But you drop it and turn around."We'll be back. Go do something like you did on the Shadow Plauge.""I will do my best my queen.""Come Mary, we're going to do some fun.""YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!"(1/2)
>>3183396I know, but none of us said to go shooting at Mari’s apartment. I assumed we were at Okada’s mansion currently. Plus didn’t other people vote on going through with our alibi for Mari. I wasn’t really paying attention to the thread since earlier in the morning.
>>3183379Sorta. I'm just pointing out that any police department with an even halfway decent programmer could flag any phone that's near a crime scene and check to see where it's generally been. The problem is mostly the burner that's on the receiving end since that burner has to be on all the time. Even if you swap the sim card constantly, it's one that goes to a specific area each day/night so a computer could easily flag it as probably being used by the same person.The other problem is that Odaka's house doesn't seem like an area with high housing density, so if a phone goes to his mansion it would be certain that his property is where it went unlike the city where it could feasibly be a thousand different other people.So if Odaka is under suspicion by some crack police force trying to get past corrupt cops to do it, they could just automatically flag any phone that went on his property and wait to see if some major crime went on.(he was possessed by a greed demon for years so he seems like a general person of interest even if they never got him for anything)TLDR the modern world has dystopia tier surveillance if it actually tries, but we don't have the cool robots that come with it yet.
Going to the city was bittersweet to you. This is where you fool around with Yuu and in extension your team. But mostly Yuu would drag you to a apparel store and try any clothes that are not dark colored. Yuu kept nagging about your wardrobe "too depressing". Your wardrobe is fine! You just like dark colored shirts."My queen! This town is so shiny.""Well cover your eyes if you can't stand it.""It's ok. I kinda want to....you know, destroy it? hihihihihi""One day Mary....one day."Going to the said address where Okada sent gave, you entered on a flashy store with a bored teenager manning the counter."What can i help you miss? We have a new model of smartphones fro-""Okada sent us. We need burner phones. 3.""The guy nodded and goes to the back. Seconds later he gave you a paper bag with 3 phone boxes on it.""Thanks. We're going now. Mary come on.""Okaaaaaay"Going out of the store, you go to the nearest alley and when confirmed it is deserted you transform into your MG outfit and jump off roof to roof until you see the forest area. A little way longer you see a house in the middle of the woods no doubt his private property Okada told you about complete with shooting range. Landing on the gate you walk a little bit and pressed the buzzer.And again.And again.Your patience was running thin now and you have an urge to just rip the whole gate apart when you see a man walking towards you. He was a big man with bulging muscles. Although you can take him easily but it is not the point right now."So...you are Master Okada guest i presume? Hmmm? Oh Mari you have grown.""No my name is Mary i'm not Mari.""Was it? Well my memory is kinda fuzzy but hey come in. I'll ready your rooms in a minute. While you are waiting, how about a cup of tea?""We'll love to.""Follow me then."He leads you to the front door and settled on one of the bigger guest room probably the living room. Both of you sit and wait for the tea to come in. While Goro is brewing a tea you decide to talk to Mary."Mary we are going to train. We need you to get ready in case our enemy is going to attack us.""Oh! really? If it makes me better at killing people then i'm in! I'll be in your care my queen."Goro emerge from the kitchen and places both of you with cups and filled it with tea."I'll ready your rooms in a moment so please make yourselves at home.">Talk with Mary (what?)>Train>Give the burner phone (who?)>Write-inI have been click trailers and chimneys for these past 15 minutes now. Damn it captcha.
>>3183408so basically we use them in crowded places, a different place per call and never say something that might compromise us. sounds easy enough
I'll make another thread after we finish the session today. So that would be tomorrow at best.
>>3183465>Talk with Mary>"How much do you remember about your previous life?"Lets get some notes before making another brainwash.>Give Mary a burner phone.
>>3183465>give Mary one of the phones. >Talk to Mary—“This is for emergencies or missions not for idol chatter. You might want to keep the Mary name between us. No need to confuse other people.”>Send out our alibi text to all the girls. “This is Mari. If you saw the news this morning you probably saw that massacre. Those guys were human traffickers. They kidnapped me and many other girls. They did horrible things to us. I got out during it. It was terrible. My uncle thinks that they were going to try to extort money out of him. I’m in hiding now it’s not safe for me. Not that any of you would care about that.”>Then smash the phone. >Practice shooting with Mary. See if we can work out the whole catch her arrows with the black hole.
>>3183465Talk with Mary (might as well go along with this burner phone business) while we try and train up our black hole enough to practice with Mary. Mary uses her arrows on the shooting range for practice while we work on that.>Train together. Mary tries to shoot her arrows at a target while we try to catch them with the black hole.>>3183514Do we have Mari's old cell phone? it would seem a bit strange for a random number they've never seen to send a message and an arrow user talking about how she was where an arrow using shadow demon was seems kinda suspicious. It brings up questions like why Mari didn't say anything sooner if they don't wonder if Mari spawned shadows. I think it's better to let them piece together the fake story with hints we might drop than be told one that might get discredited. People will inevitably come up with their own excuses for what happens that work much better than blindly lying and having to explain more.
>>3183578My thought was that Mari would not be using the same number because of the “threat” to her life. As far as the shadows, why won’t shadows spawn in a place like that. Plus it’s not like Mari did not run away from shadows before.
>>3183592>>3183578Also mari was kidnapped. Kidnappers don't give you the luxury of taking the phone with you.
>>3183592I'm just saying. If Yuu immediately made connections to us from watching the video on youtube, the rest of em might put 2+2 together if we gave them a bunch of extra info. Magical girls and shadows seem to be generally able to sense emotional states and they know hers was starting to spiral down before the kidnapping time. Then she apparently got kidnapped by Yakuza rapists and some mega shadow coincidentally bursts out to kill almost everyone in the building at the same time? And she doesn't seem to want to meet everyone in person?Rei's constant reading means she'd be the first to notice something is up from all the cheap mystery novel hints we shoved in neon lights and everyone else would realize it makes too much sense to not try and visit. Yuu already is ready to push the issue of the mindwipe if we wanna metagame so she'd be supporting the visit Mari option just so that she can ream her for what she did. Her parents don't know the cover story so there would be mass confusion from that.We also don't know what the kohai's parents do. It would be a huge mistake if they (or some other relative) turned out to be cops and she talked with her parents about how her friend was kidnapped right before the giant massacre. The kohai is the most unknown but any of the other girls could have an uncle or friend of the family that's a cop whom they might talk to for reassurance since their friend was there. The cop would then wonder why the hell somebody that important wasnn't mentioned and investigate further.That's the problem with lies. You end up needing to try and lie more to cover up each one until you get caught when you wouldn't have gotten caught if you didn't need to lie or speak to begin with.
>>3183634>Her parents don't know the cover story so there would be mass confusion from that.They do; it was said here >>3183405>"My Queen. Mary's parents contacted me and i said she is just fine. I just told them that she is on one of the summer houses outside of the town and currently resting there. Good thing her parents didn't pry more and i let them return to their work."Then again, you are right. Once we get Yuu or Rei, the others will freak out and get ready for us, but at that point we are dealing against scared girls that lack their shield, brains and long range support.
>>3183634The problem is if the girls find Mari missing and decide to go to her parents. The parents will tell them that Mari is with Okada. Which will lead them to the corrupted mansion and us.
>>3183653The parents know Mari was stressed. We never mentioned to odaka to let em know about the kidnapping. (the parents didn't really ask since they seemed to have figured all was fine once Odaka said he had her.) The girls would run up to Mari's parents talking about Yakuza rapist bloodbaths which would be rather extreme news for them to learn about. Thing spiral from there.>>3183666Odaka should get that plane thing ready by now. We've not followed up on it, but we can arrange her fake trip and some tearful text to Yuu about how she's sorry even if Yuu doesn't understand what she means by that.Then a general message about how she's been sent away to "relax" by her uncle since she almost got kidnapped by the same people that died in that massacre the other night if you really insist upon a reveal.
>>3183676hmm... what if we corrupt the parents? The idea would be that they will only answer the phone because they are on a business trip and that they know Mari's location but she asked them to keep it private.I know this is only buying some extra time, but after getting another MG into our rank or dead, things will go our way rather fast.
>>3183687Seems like a bunch of extra work when we could just not directly mention the thing that could unravel everything we're hiding.We could have Odaka suddenly make "generous donations" to the police service and talk about how anyone involved with those Yakuza should be properly brought to justice.Then some intrepid reporter puts 2+2 together about how Odaka's (late) niece suddenly went into hiding just before a gang of Yakuza that kidnaps rich girls like her all died. Odaka the greedy suddenly takes an interest in law enforcement punishing anyone connected to the ring? Smells like a scoop.
>>3183487>>3183514>>3183578>Talk to mary about her past life>Give the burner phone to Maryand>Practicewriting.....after i get my dinner
"Say Mary. Do you remember anything about your past?""Oh! I remember killing a lot of people yesterday!""No. I meant before you met me."Her expression darkens and her ever manic smile became a frown. She slowly hugs herself in fetal position as she slowly mutters some words."So lonely....dark....I don't wanna be alone."You kept listening for a little while."I can't see anything. It was dark. So dark. Pain. I felt pain. Then something happened. You...you came to me. Ask to be your friend. I was happy. That is why Mary is happy. I would do anything for you my queen. I would do anything so i won't be lonely again."Seems she doesn't remember anything when she was Mari. All that was left was the mental trauma that you amplify and dealt with. And now she is wrapped in your tiny little hands. You chuckle for a little bit but you stopped yourself into devolving to a full evil laughter.You don't do that right?Taking out another box you empty it's contents and give the phone to Mary."Do you know how to use this?"She looks for a little bit until something hits her."Yes...this is very easy to use!""Good. This is for emergencies or missions not for idol chatter. You might want to keep the Mary name between us. No need to confuse other people.""But my name is Mary though."You pat her head gently which makes Mary giddy with happiness. Eventually Goro comes back."Your room is ready esteemed guest. You can now rest if you like.""No thank you. In fact, we need to access this......shooting range you have. And some privacy.""Of course. Follow me."Both of you stand up and Goro shows you the house in turn. He toured you to where he will serve dinner, the staircase to your room. A rule that anything is locked is off limits and the way to the shooting range. It was a wide area with a room where there is a booth that was divided into 5 which has difference in distance. The first was 10m then 50, 100, 400 and 750m. The dummy can be adjusted as the field itself spans up to 2km itself."I leave it to you now ma'am. I would assume you already have license to carry small firearms.""No we are not using a firearm but this is fine. Thank you Goro-san.""Please call me if you need me."He walks away leaving the two of you in the field."Ok Mary i need you to shoot something.""Ohhhh! are we? are we? what am i shooting.""When you see a small black ball i want you to shoot that thing. Understand?""Ok. I'll do my best.""Also no homing. That is cheating.""Awwwwwwwwww. Alright."Mary position herself on the middle of the booth. You can freely choose how far you want this to work.>250m see how it works>500m probably the average>1km test her accuracy>2km see how far she can hit a target so accurately
>>3184011>500m probably the averageI don't think you can properly aim at a target without a scope after that mark (or even before that. im not so sure about it tough)
>>3184011Dang those are some really long ranges. Magical girls must be kind of OP.To put things in perspective 20 to 25 meters is a fairly challenging distance to fire at target with a pistol. 50m may be beyond the effective range of some rounds at least from a handgun length barrel.I have never been into bows before so I don't what their effective range is.250m is a challenging shot with a rifle. 500m is the maximum effective range for rifle with an intermediate cartridge (5.56nato/.223 ect.).1km is hard with larger caliber rifles with a scope.2km we are talking about anti-material rifle range.Did Okada manage assassins before turning into a shadow?The other thing to consider with our defensive powers and Mary's preferred tactics how far would we want her away from us in a fight. I think we would want to stay close to her so we can defend her.>500m probably the average (more than enough for most urban environments) >start off slow get a feel for how she fires. Is Mary throwing a bunch of arrows at a target or is she able to hit them accurately with single shots? Coach her one shot, One target.>If she is doing good there is no reason not to find out how far she can push her powers.>Play along with her. Make a game of it.
>>3184061>I have never been into bows before so I don't what their effective range is.a quick google search gave me numbers ranging from 200 to 400 meters and some instances of 500 and a little bit more. If we consider that a magical girl is using magical ammo, the 2km range becomes very feasible, albeit really improbable to hit because i don't think you will be able to distinguish jackshit at that distance with the naked eye.
>>3184078You right about that range. It would be hard to make out jack-shit without some type of magnification. Then again we are dealing with magical girls. If they can fire a arrow with enough force to make it to a target at 2km, what's to say that we don't have enhanced vision too. I was under the impression that the girls were stronger, faster, and more durable than the average man but we weren't pushing into spess marine territory. That is a question for Corruptor though.
>>3184112The thing about is, this is specifically for Mari which she specialize in long range shooting. Mari can cheat a little bit as long as she can see the target. Her effective target can go up to [REDACTED] and with something from Assassin creed like eagle eye as her passive she can see anything far enough to target anyone so it was a good idea to take her out or you wouldn't want Mari fighting her with a whole group of MG.>Sachiko: Pressure>Rei: DPS>Mari: Long Range DPS>Kanna: Tank>Yuu: UtilityMake that as you will.
>>3184117>...good idea to take her outMore like a good idea to get her on our side. I might have been underestimating the combat capabilities of magical girls in this setting.>>3184011With that changing my vote to:>Why not all the distances.>Start off slow to get a feel for how she fires. Is Mary still throwing a bunch of arrows at one target or is she able to hit them with single shots? Coach her. One shot, one target.>Increase the distance sets of targets.>Play along with her. Make a game of it. You can't just drop that [REDACTED] in there without an anon wanting to know more.
>>3184143Finding out is part of the game you know? It's not fun to drop everything on your lap don't you think?
Tomorrow i will make a new thread along with the choosen choices. For now good night and see you tomorrow.
>>3184162Absolutely agree. I just propsed that we should experiment to figure what redacted could mean. That’s all. Thanks for the run.
>>3184112>>3184143I personally had assumed that most of the battle damage from the original post was from the shadow but even a tiny bit of the damage being described being from magical girls is still pretty high.A dead and still weak enough to crit fail that shadowling Junko was still denting/moving shipping containers and we seem to have been a team that's generally skewed towards magic and ranged attacks instead of physical fights.I wonder what happened to that boy we rescued.So attempt to snipe Rei while Mary has some random Yakuza clients nearby for her to kill for recharges? If they lose both of their DPS we can probably eternally tank the rest of the team solo once we have time to practice using our old Hope fueled powers (to skip weakness) instead of the shadow ones we've been working on that would give them a chance. We seem to have generally figured out the shadow powers we want to settle on. After Rei is gone we're gonna have to start prepping for purifying all of those shadows after the girls are dead.I'm not sure what the exact cause is for our corrupted Kill Kill KILL thoughts but I've got a few ideas:A) How much corruption we've absorbed.B) How much we've trained/used our shadow powers which could be offset by working on our MG powersC) How much hope/love and all that fluffiness is nearby. Aka shadow instinctsRei didn't give us extra bloodlust while Yuu having warm fuzzy dreams before the nightmare started seems to have caused bloodlust. I'm somewhat doubting it's C since Mary would have been extremely prone to giving some super happy person the axe. The same applies to us, but we have more self control.>>3184011>Since I assume we still remember her old range, 1KM and then keep on making them out further until she misses 3 or we get bored.Then we start putting the black holes in random spots and trying to see if we can move the black holes to make moving targets.
>>3184279>So attempt to snipe Rei while Mary has some random Yakuza clients nearby for her to kill for recharges?I have no idea how the fuck that's going to work. Because i don't find the idea of hunting for yakuza and them keeping them in storage appealing
>>3184342Storage? We just yoink them from wherever they are,drag them around for a little bit with our super strength, and start doing machine gun Kamehameha waves at Rei's bedroom.
I know we have been thinking about gearing up to take Rei in a strait up fight, but what about using more underhanded tactics. I don't know the prevalence of natural gas home heating or appliances in Japan but if Rei's house does have them what about causing a gas leak. I know with Okada's "insurance" business he would know a thing or two about such an "accident". Stalk her a little more to know her and her parents' schedules. Sabotage the gas line after everybody leaves or in the middle of the night if Corrupting all of Rei's books turns her into some type of shut in. Just give the place a few hours to fill up with gas and even the friction from opening a door would cause an explosion and ensuing fire. We could avoid doing too much collateral damage if we time it right.Even if Rei survives she would be badly burned and possibly horribly maimed. Then we could show up to the hospital and corrupt or siphon her as she lays defenseless in her hospital bed.Plus it keeps up our plausible deniability. What do other anons think?
>>3184361because we would have to locate a yakuza, confirm that they are yakuza and then haul the body to wherever we need it.Mary's perk is useful in the middle of a fight, but we don't really need it when we are fighting a 2 vs1 or are demolishing things.
>>3184379Sometimes you just wanna shoot some Dakka, ya know?
>>3184361>>3184390I get there is never enough Dakka but I don't think that this is an effective strategy barring we are going down the "dark side route" or some type of Walpurgisnacht type scenario Implying that a fully corrupted Junko isn't a Walpurgisnacht type scenario or we go so loud that we bring the military down on our head.>>3184365No input guys?
>>3184621>No input guys?I rather just cut their heating to make her antsy and worsen her mood over time. Chipping away at her happiness and composure.Foreplay gets you more play.
>>3184635fuck yeah.>Rei joins our side thanks to a bunch of first world and petty problems and her inability to fix them or call for a professional.On that note, if we convert Rei, she should be our cook. Our inner shadow seemed to love the shit out of her muffins.
>>3184808That would be incredible.>Rei sits pensively in the darkened room... >It started with the muffins, their theft a grievous injury from which her soul would never recover.>Then her parents found her BL stash. Three weeks grounded. NO PHONE. How could she live?>Someone stole her laptop battery and charger. How could she ever shitpost on 2ch? Browse Pixiv? All that new husbando artwork gone like tears in rain.>Somebody just cut power to her house. Fuck!> "Its so cold and dark. Somebody please send help. I would do anything...">Junko presses her face against the bedroom window.>Junko: "Anything?">Rei: "Yeah, sure, but your dea..."> A loud bang rings out as Mary kicks down the front door dragging a disheveled yakuza thug like a stuffed animal, a look of confusion still plastered across his face.>Mary: "YAAAAAY NEW FRIENDS!">Rei: FML
>>3184936>Ladies and gentelmen, we got her.>cue video with Mary as the FBI.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIph0BJNrxo
>>3184365I think Rei is the last covert kill. Then it's Sachiko having to deal with knowing that she's being hunted for revenge.>>3184936It would be hilarious, but it kinda takes the fun out of revenge if by the end they all end up "alive.">Oh i'll kill them all!>Nah. I'll just make them my Meidos instead.>>3184635Not evil enough to kill the parents with her yet since it's way too easy to end up doing that. Most mothers are kinda stuck in the house almost 24/7 in japan so it'll be really hard to find her alone. Sneaky is fine. There are plenty of poisons we could stuff her muffin with after asking Odaka for them. Nightshade would be particularly gruesome if we cut out the cell/phone lines and put up a barrier around the whole house.That might change with the next shadow we absorb,but so far we mostly seem prone to minor mischief.
>>3185016eh, mari is for all intents and purposes dead, and even if we wanted to give "her" memories back, the result won't be the same.>Nah. I'll just make them my Meidos instead.I see no problem with that. Having your enemies be your loyal servants for the rest of their lives is a pretty nifty idea.>OdakaIts Okada, my man.
>>3184621By that point we could probably take the military. It's not like we aren't already dead,magical girls are generally required to beat/damage shadows from what I understand about the regeneration rates,Japan isn't very religious so there aren't going to be any accidental holy missiles/bullets hitting us. Maybe the emperor will turn out to really have divine powers? Japan claims they still have the magical sword, but everyone else basically knows they lost it since they refuse to show it.>>3184635Whoops. meant for>>3184621
>>3185031>By that point we could probably take the military.What if there are Military MGs?
>>3185035That would be fucking awesome. I'm imagining a Magical girl coming in to attack us Dr Strangelove style.
>>3185016I considered that from post>>3179459>Her parents are scholars from the country so most of the time her parents aren't home.So we if we do our homework we can avoid blowing up her mom. Poisons are not bad but a young girl dropping dead suddenly would warrant police investigation. Investigators mean meddling coroners running tests. Sachiko knowing that she is hunted could cause more complications. She could contract more girls or call in out of town back up. She could go after Yuu or our mom.
>>3185056the other option would be to take things easy, investigate them more and avoid acting on the girls so soon.
>>3185070No I completely agree that more intel is needed before we move on any of the girls. I was just spit-balling a plan we could put reaserch into. Thread consensus seemed to be taking out Rei to upset Sachiko but we could always stalk all three girls and take out whom ever presents themselves as a target of opportunity. >>3185031What if use Okada’s fortune to mount a oceanographic expedition to find the sword? They’ll never see that coming.
>>3185111Japan has three treasures that represent the Emperors divine right to rule.The Sword itself is considered to be lost/stolen by everyone outside of Japan since Japan refuses to actually prove they still have it.
>>3185123oh. That gives me an idea; what if we try to look for relics or items of power that can boost us up while the girls relax their defenses (and we keep torturing Rei with petty problems).
>>3185140Welp to the Kanmon Straits we go.
