Or at least it would make sense with Junko doing something.>Forgive my excessive bad grammar. My tacos have difficulty expressing into words that thesaurus can't help me on that end.>Last of all enjoying corrupting everyone. Or killing everyone :)."MARY! I'M GOING 500m AND SEE IF YOU CAN HIT IT OK? IF YOU CAN HIT TWO OUT OF THREE I'LL.....uhhh GIVE YOU HEAD PATS!""YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY I'LL DO MY BEST MY QUEEN!"After your shouting contest is finished, not that it was a contest to begin with. You position yourself 500m away from Mary. You summon your mini black hole to try to suck Mary's arrows. After you made the hole bigger than your fist, it starts to suck around everything. Well this would be a problem if you can't control it but it is up to your discretion how big it would be.>Smaller like your palm. Easier to control>Same size like your fist. Starts to suck everything around it.>Go for broke! Bigger than a volleyball. May or may suck the trees around it....Maybe.
>>3185233>>Same size like your fist. Starts to suck everything around it.i think you got the palm and fists comparisons backward
>>3185233>Same size like your fist. Starts to suck everything around it.
>>3185257My comparison was when you summon something on your palm it is not literally would cover all the palm area maybe it could be smaller or 75% could cover it. While the fist thing is like a baseball. Sorry if my sizes are very skewed.
>>3185333oh, that makes more sense(and makes the black hole scarier)
>>3185233Fist. We can work on expanding size after we get used to making/unmaking them quickly.The challenge for Mari is probably speed based since her accuracy should be absurdly high as a baseline.
>>3185257>>3185259>>3185384Fist it isWriting
>>3185458Making the hole as big as your fist the surrounding grass starts to tug gently as the hole was opening from the fabric of space. Small pebbles starts to drag through the hole sucking whatever small enough to be fit inside the hole. You even saw an ant futilely struggles it's legs as it is also suck inside the hole. Not wanting to know how long you can hold this hole you raise your hand and signal Mary to get ready. Tossing the black hole in the air Mary starts shooting. The first one nearly hit the mark but for some reason the arrow changed trajectory and sucked the arrow. The second and the third one hit true as the arrows directly sucked into the hole. 3 seconds later the hole disappeared. Mary jumps around ecstatic for her eventual headpats and maybe attention. The hole is very useful but it takes a long time to charge and it takes 10 seconds before it disappear. It's not that useful in a fight but it has some niches.>SKILL DISCOVERED: BLACK HOLE - Summon a small black hole the size of either your palm, fist or even a volleyball. Has different kinds of destructive power and the bigger the ball is the longer it takes to charge>Palm: 1 post>Fist: 3 post>Volleyball: 5 post>Junko Skill List has been updatedYou are still fine after releasing that black hole but will you try much farther target? Although the one you released was kinda cheating because even though it missed a little bit it would suck the arrow closer to the hole.>750m A little ways farther than earlier>1km Maybe her effective range?>1.5km Try her accuracy>2km Test how she can hit small objects this farAlso>Smaller like your palm. Easier to control>Same size like your fist. Starts to suck everything around it.>Go for broke! Bigger than a volleyball. May or may suck the trees around it....Maybe.
>>3185491>1km Maybe her effective range?>Same size like your fist. Starts to suck everything around it.> It's not that useful in a fight but it has some niches.Using the black hole as an alpha strike will be devastating for the poor bastard that gets caught.
>>3185500Probably also pretty great for absorbing attacks. we're gonna need to figure out what happens if it gets hit by a holy attack.>>3185491>1.5km Try her accuracy and see if we can make it a moving target.>Smaller size
>>3185491>>1.5km Try her accuracy>Same size like your fist. Starts to suck everything around it.
>>3185500>>3185601>>3185713>No no no. I swear my muffin was here. I didn't eat it this morning cause i was saving it for this afternoon. Rei think. Think. Who would come in here to take your muffin? Hmmmm. All i could think was Junko who always raids the fridge to be given to Yuu but Yuu would bu unlikely to break inside the house.>.....AAAAAAAAAAAAA THIS IS FRUSTRATING! I'll just.>......>MY FUCKING SODA ALSO DISAPPEARED!!! WHERE ARE YOU THIEF IM GOING TO DESTROY YOU!!!writing
>>3185816If Rei keeps like this, she might make sandy hook look like a joke. I love it.
Rolled 68, 7, 82 - 5 = 152 (3d100 - 5)Rolling for accuracy for Mary Shadow arrows
>>3185838So it seems like she can still get some of her arrows at this distance. Scary.
>>3185838You jump a kilometer away from Mary making it a kilometer and five hundred meters. You summon the same size but now you feeling the exhaustion in your body. If you could surmise you can only summon two black holes the size of your fist. Not wanting to collapse in the middle of target practice you raise your hand hoping Mary can see you that far. Tossing the ball another 3 arrows were released. The first one was too wide but it was pulled yet not sucked inside the hole. The second one on the other hand strike true and shoot inside the whole. The third one is off the mark that it wasn't even pulled by the black hole. Maybe it has a radius where i could effectively suck an object. At least you already know your limit on how your black hole works.>NEW INFORMATION ACQUIRED: BLACK HOLE - Limited uses. Consumes a lot of energy. If the fist size can be used 2 times, the palm size can be used 3 times and the volleyball size can be used 1 time only. Has an area where an object can be suck inside the hole.Sweating a lot despite not moving around that much. That black hole have taken a lot of you. Feeling tired, you decide to meet with Mary who anticipates your headpats. Well she hit 4/6 target despite the first one being literally sucked by the hole, you gave her the headpats. Mary on her part was so happy she melted in your touch. She litterally sways her body to maximize her headpats.Adorable girl....>Rest>Send Mary (what and where?)>Investigate (who?)>Go somewhere (where?)>Write-in

>>3185854>>>3185854 #>>Have Mary piggyback us>>Go somewhere >To whatshisname shack! He promised tea and we are tired.Seconding.
>>3185854can we have a bit of a lore dump on where little MGs come from and if there are some in other cities?Also, please list our former teammates again the only list is in the first thread. >>3185854>InvestigateKeep an eye out for Yuu>Ask Okada if he can have our colorful MG outfit tailored so we might interact with Yuu at one point whiteout giving away we are a shadow
>>3185854>3185491>Explore the mansion Places of interest include the dining hall and the shield generator.>Ask Okada to collect an armoury of sacred and MG weapons.>I'm assuming that the reason we haven't seen a great deal of some information is because our own memory is quite shoddy/fragmented. Fortunately we have an alternative route. Read Mari's memories about how she became a magical girl and whatever else she might have learned about their origins.I was trying to see if I could get Mary to learn homing arrows but I guess that failed since we could only make so many black holes
>>3185886The MG weapons in the armoury idea can be justified to him via saying that if he has the weapons then any prospective magical girls that might attack don't have them either.
>>3185878>Ask Okada if he can have our colorful MG outfit tailored so we might interact with Yuu at one point without giving away we are a shadowI don't think that's a problem for us because we can shapeshift better.
>>3185878I will put the necessary information on pastebin when i have time. I will also include our former teammates and our current relationship so anons can keep track on what is happening. Thanks for suggesting.
>>3185888Plus we still kinda trust her. If we don't show her our true form it's because we're ashamed/disgusted by what we now are.
>>3185888I thought it was specifically stated that we can't make our former outfit>>3185891don't bring out the 12inch strap on in the beginning but ease her in first>>3185890another question too, Okada is pretty much only loyal because we are his "queen" according to him,but not because we are a good leader.I get the sneaky suspicion he may work for a greater evil that uses us to get rid of the others. Even if not... Say we manage to corrupt Yuu the same way we are, wouldn't that make her queen material the same way?I think we should start managing our kingdom in a way to gain actual loyalty from people, at least them believing serving us is better than serving some else. He and Mari can't be the only sane(ish) shadows around.>search for/Investigate other sane shadows
>>3185886She already knows how to use them.>"Also no homing. That is cheating.">"Awwwwwwwwww. Alright.">>3185878I like these ideas but We are really tired right now. We would have a hard time fighting back if the meeting went badly and Yuu tried to fight us or more likely the other girls were keeping tabs on Yuu and planned an ambush of their own. We could shapeshift into our old outfit but it might ping as corruption. Granted Junko's whole being is corruption now, so what's a little less.>>3185891We might be able to use that to earn her pity along with her trust.>>3185886>I'm assuming that the reason we haven't seen a great deal of some information is because our own memory is quite shoddy/fragmented.My MGS V shitposting made me think of this: What if we are not actually Junko but a shadow with her memories. Okada found the shadow of plague and magical girls suffering spawns shadows. We were "dead" for about two months, not quite nine years, but may be Okada is..."Pretty good (makes the hand gesture)". He found the shadow of wrath the opening battle left behind and altered in in some way. Or it could be for narrative convenience.
>>3185898I recall that we can't transform into our original MG dress because it was replaced by the new one, but that doesn't mean we can't try to use the OG MG dress as a civvie piece of clothing. After all, the usage or not of the dress doesn't seem to affect our powers.>wouldn't that make her queen material the same way?That's what we thought when we transformed mari, but it seems that her lack of will and her excessive amount of fear and pain made it impossible for her to become like us. Maybe you need some very specific circumstances in order to transform into us, some which might need the shadow that killed us, die with a shitton of willpower unused and some clear anchor that can return us to the living.>I think we should start managing our kingdom in a way to gain actual loyalty from people.The problem is, how? Originally we wanted to return to our mom and live a normal life, then we learned we are apparently a queen that has been said to overrun the world in darkness and we obviously don't want that.>>3185905>We might be able to use that to earn her pity along with her trust.I like that idea.>"They made me like this Yuu! They converted me into this horrible gestalt!">SpoilerI was betting on that from the beginning and there are some things that support that, but since we can use our hope powers and probably other light based abilities, i don't think so.
>>3185911What if the anchor is hope? In the first thread there was that anon that brought up the story of Pandora's Box and the Ancient Greeks viewed hope as just a curse that kept people going through more suffering. All of the complex shadows could have hoped for something in their final moments: Junko wanted revenge, Mari/Mary wanted a friend and not to be lonely any longer. Okada ???...Profit or was motivated by a hope to change the world in someway. I would bet Mary could use magical girl powers too with practice.
>>3185905We would be a shadow that actually has magical girl powers too instead of an imitation.We are real enough at the very least before diving into philosophies about what is self and Ships of Theseus.>>3185911I was personally going for Sorry Yuu-chan. I'm not ok. The fact that we can use MG powers still is a pretty major thing and I think it's about time to train those powers now that we've gotten the black hole unlocked.It's fairly big evidence that we are the real Junko or that our revenge isn't just some stupid shadow plot.We should probably check on our mom soon. Doesn't have to be a direct visit but at least a ping or two to check for shadows is important. We don't want to make the same mistake the old team did since we don't know we may have accidentally hypnotized her.
>>3185927I wanted to check back in on Junko's mom earlier but could not think of anything to write in to say or do with her.My personal plan was to drop off another note for Yuu with a burner cell phone number for her to contact us and set up a meeting and write something about looking out for our mother in the note.
>>3185924I'm more biased towards will than hope because although hope is what what burns the shadows, willpower/determination or whatever is the driving force behind everything everyone does. I mean, there are research papers that say that once one has lost the will to live the heart stops in matter of days; translating that on a magical aspect should be easy. We wanted revenge, Okada wanted more money and power and Mari wanted a real friend. Hope might apply a little bit more in Mari's case, but wanting power and revenge needs you to thing ahead, plan your moves and do stuff you are not prepared to do, and willpower can fill those holes perfectly.>>3185927>Spoileryeah, maybe do a light spar with mari later? only that us will be exclusively using our MG powers.I support on visiting our mom. We can clean her house again and maybe leave another note while the shadows keep fucking up Rei's house and are driving her madder little by little.....The situation with our mom got me thinking; Can someone high enough on positive emotions spawn a lightspawn? It sounds plausible, doesn't it?
>>3185942I'm assuming the "lightspawn" situation is a general mythological hero instead. I also slightly suspect that the corruption is referring to the heroic potential that the person had since Magical girls apparently start spawning shadows like mad when they despair normal humans seem to take several weeks. The shadows are literal corrupted MG powers instead of a separate set of powers.
>>3185942Determination>Smacks lips...So whach' yuu sayan is ...WE WUZ CHARA N SHIETAll shitposting aside that makes a ton of sense.LightspawnAt first I was going to propose that that could be the way a magical girl is contracted in this setting but it doesn't match what we know about the girls. Mari seemed to be miserable for a long time; merely hiding it behind a facade. Junko was a friendless loser, (at least until Yuu came along) who almost became the second coming of Nevada-tan by beating a bully over the head with a rock.>>3185958That spoilerMakes a lot of sense too.
>Say Yuu-senpai. Why do you always stick with Junko-senpai?>Hm? Oh! Well you see we were friends since middle school. We have a promise to each other when we were little. Now thinking about it, it is kinda silly. Also whenever i'm with her, food comes in. See here comes Junko.>Yuu, here is your melon bread, a pudding and a can of orange juice. Also don't eat too much or you get fat. You always complain that you are gaining weight everyday.>See Kanna? That is why Junko is my bestest friend ever.>Kanna eyes are sparkling on how beautiful the friendship of Yuu and Junko is. Although Yuu has her selfish agenda to herself, both of them could say that they are inseparable.Writing...Anons your shadowruns scares me a little bit. But keep it going maybe coughicanstealsomethingoutofitandmakeitworkontheongoingplotcough
>>3185870>>3185871Feeling a little headache you stop headpatting Mary and you hug her behind. Mary confused with your gesture but she returned your hug by wrapping her hand with yours."Mary, I'm so tired today. Can you piggy back ride me to the house? Also call Goro to fetch us some tea.""Okaaaaaaaaaay."Mary hefts you up and then suddenly startled as she touched your bum. You blushed a little bit as Mary is very oblivious on her actions."Mary...just don't touch there. You can carry me with my legs.""Oh! did i hurt you? I'm sorry i'll be careful next time.""No..i mean....nevermind."The two of you trek a little ways until you arrive at the house. Mary shouted hoping for Goro hears whatever she says."GOOOOOOOOOROOOOOOOOOOO GIVE US TEA!"Seconds later Goro emerges with a piping hot tea and two cups and leads you to the living room. Mary slowly put you on a sofa while she goes for the chair. Goro then gives you some pastries. Cakes like strawberry shortcake, Mocha fudge, Black Forest, Mont Blanc and Cheesecake. Goro said his excuses and bids you farewell to enjoy your meal. Mary happily digs down the cakes that was given while you take the black forest. Both of you sink from the sweet sweet pastries and a soothe and calming tea which washes your exhaustion away.(1/3)
>>3186006..........*at Mari's place*"You see Mari came in too late. She just smile and nod at me when i greeted her and for some reason her giggle is....very dark. Like she is up to no good. Of course i just ignored it maybe she has a boyfriend or something. You know kids these days? Oh what am i talking about. You are also kids.""Uhhh....thanks for telling us ma'am."The three thank the receptionist and was given a spare key to her apartment."Mari has a boyfriend? That is very shocking senpais.""Kanna as i would like to believe i think Mari can't stand boys. Or so i believe.""That is so mean Sachiko-senpai. Mari is also a girl and a maiden girl heart is easy to fall in love to a guy. Imagine a rich girl falls in love with a poor boy and both of them love so much they elope and live together? IS IT ROMANTIC?""Kanna that is not how that works.""Booooooo you are so boring Sachiko-senpai. Yuu-senpai why are you so quiet.""Ah! oh....i....i'm just worried you know.""We're going to check on her so let's not worry about her alright? I'm sure she is alright.""Okay Sachiko."The elevator dings to the top floor where Mari penthouse is located. The group goes to the door and opened it."Mari? Were going in.""Mari-senpai! were checking on you.""Mari-san are you in here?"Quiet. Too quiet."Maybe she is asleep in her room?""Well let's check it."Sachiko, Kanna and Yuu goes to Mari's room. Opening it is the same as ever. No occupant."Weird. Mari isn't here.""Well maybe she came home with her parents?""Probably. Well at least we checked her so let's go home.""Wait! Can i stay here a little bit longer?""Why Yuu? something happened?""No...i just...uhh have something to do here."Sachiko glared at Yuu but relented."Don't take too long or someone will see you and mistake you as a burglar.""Don't worry i won't take long.""Kanna let's go.""Yes! coming."The two of them goes out and closes the door. Yuu returns to Mari's room looking for a notebook. Or a journal. Opening all the drawers leave nothing but brushes. Clothes, underwear, socks and some pants. Going back to the living room nothing is of...Wait.Mari has a wooden statue on the table. Looking around you see some items are missing."Was there a burglar here?"Looking for clues it seems that some items are missing. But only the small ones. Yuu tries one last thing before she goes home."SCAN!!"Her field of vision turned blue all of the sudden and time slows down. She saw traces of corruption with some concentrated on the living room. Cancelling it and going to the bedroom she saw similar results with a higher concentration on the table."Did Mari attacked by a shadow? No impossible. She would contact either Sachiko or Rei."Yuu ponders what is happening to Mari as her investigation goes way too deep but one day she will know what is happening. For now she returns home and think what would be her next step.(2/3)
>>3186012Mari was very satisfied as she rubs her belly and burp a little bit. She giggled with her actions and continue rubbing her belly. Although she ate most of the cake the tea is what you really liked a lot. You should ask what tea did Goro put on the pot."So my queen. What will you do now?""Hmmm. Right now is evening and i think i would.....">Sleep>Send Mary (what and where?)>Investigate (who?)>Go somewhere (where?)>Write-inLast update for today. Good night everyone

I would get mad.">text of the letter is in a separate post for length.>Collect Mary and head out to drop the letter through Yuu's bedroom window.>Head back to the mansion for the night.(1/2)
>>3186181>(2/2)>Content of the letter:Dear Yuu,I always disliked those horror movies you showed me, especially after you told me with hair like mine I could pass for one of those spooky ghost girls. Well now I think I know why those ghosts act the way they do. It turns out when you die, suddenly and violently, it really hurts. Betrayal only makes the sting worse. Then you’re trapped in oblivion with only the pain and your memories to keep you company. The pain turns to anger. It feels like any eternity, but one day you come back. The problem is everything is wrong, even your soul feels “off”, everything except for the anger. You feel like you’re going to explode. Yuu I don’t hate you, otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this. In fact, I know you would have fought with me if you hadn’t been pulled away. I can’t ever forgive the rest of the girls though, especially Mari, Sachiko, and Rei.They should have know what they were doing was wrong. Then they violated your mind rather than standing by you; helping you grieve. They did it for convenience. How craven! That was one thing, but you know about my family. About my mom. I was all she had left. Understandably, she couldn’t take it. She spawned a shadow. I know you were messed up. They weren’t. It was there for weeks. It almost killed her. I was so weak then, it almost did the same to me. Then, there was that shadow of plague. All those kids, just withering away. At what point can carelessness become malice.Yuu, I’m in over my head. Nothing makes sense anymore and I don’t think there is anyone else I can trust. I can’t go back to my mom like this. Sackiho knows more than she lets on. I know the rest of the girls would kill me if they found me like I am now. They might do the same to you too or just blank your mind again if they found out we are talking. Please be careful. Yuu remember the day we meet. It must have been fate. Remember what we talked about. I need my general back. I need her at my side. I need to hear the words you said to me back then, even if they are a lie now.Below you will find a phone number you can use it to reach me. I need to see you in person. There are things I have to say; things I can only show you face to face. Please keep an open mind. Call ahead. I need to make sure the meeting is at some place safe and you aren’t followed. Also call if you’re in danger. I’ll come running. P. S. I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but please watch out for my mother and if anything happens to me take care of her. Just like last, time burn this note after you read it. You friend forever, Junko
>>3186144>/u/ bait>all girls are potentially lesbiangirls are just more physical and touch each other more, which people (especially those who are social outcasts who never touch anyone) interpret as intimacy.I do support your suggestion though.500m is enough for an ambush, more so than her sniping, we should have her train for consistent damage of a move in target that does not suck her arrows in.>glass canonI don't know, she runs out of mana (or whatever) quickly. That doesn't mean she can't take hits.>>3186181>>Head back to the mansion for the night.I assumed we could sleep in the shack too.I like a slower burn on Yuu, let her squirm for a bit and only slowly feed her intel. drag it out and let her do some of her own investigations.Lets lay down low the next day, go shopping with Mary a few towns over, while a shadow steals Rei's cooking when she's not looking.send the letter the next evening, don't rush
>>3186185I understand the slow burn approach but we need to get around to telling her something sooner rather than later. The first rule of PR is to try to get out in front of a crisis. The longer we wait the higher the probability that she goes frilly (to steal a term from a different quest) and kicks in Okada's front door blowing our entire plan and risking her life or the more chances of us doing something that Yuu might find so morally reprehensible, that she would not want to side with us. If we can turn her ear now we can ease her into revenge with us. i.e. the boiling frog metaphor.>while a shadow steals Rei's cookingThe more you mention it, the more I actually want to vote to make this a reality.We would send out some shadowshades during the day to do this as a joke and we would actually drive Rei crazy by making harpies and their signature behavior a reality.
>>3186144>we want more of her personality to survive, right?Yes, but we don't know what factors are needed for a transformation like the one okada or us had. we might need to train on random people to see the results(mind you, not random random per se, but you know, yakuza and whatever evil people we might stumble upon).>you said she's a ranged DPS, but it somehow feels like she's a glasscanon.But Ranged DPS' are glasscannons. They need someone on the front lines to block the enemy's advances.>>3185979>SpoilerThere is a greenntext floating around of a DM taking notes of their players. Its usually a good idea, just take in consideration that about 90% of the stuff we say is bullshit.>>3186185>Lets lay down low the next day, go shopping with Mary a few towns over,FUCK YEAH, SHOPPING TIME.>>3186194First we steal her cookies, then we cut her internet connection and when she gets it repaired, we cut out her power connection.
>>3186215Rei’s a bookish type. Get the shadows to steal her glasses.
>>3186218Holy shit, that's genius.But what if we step it up a notch and steal her box of dildos.?
>>3186221My guess is that she has a Hitachi Magic Wand or clone in that locked desk drawer.so why not get the shadows to steal both.However, the moment she turns into some type of femcel that would put Tomoko Kuroki to shame (demanding muffins instead of tendies) and behaving like https://youtu.be/Yp_DydcUPNI We stage that gas leak and put her ass down.
>>3186221>>3186243>stealing spoilersI agree with it more if we actually would find some, which I doubt.but only for the reason that she can't tell anyone if the stuff is gone.She'd assume it had been her parents who took it away from her as it's inappropriate to own for a teenager (or maybe for someone in general, depending on her parents demeanor)but it would make her paranoid, as admitting it would cause her parents to know and she might only be under the believe it was only a single parent.Either way, if it exists, I rather corrupt it and her books, and drive her lust sin up before taking it all away
>>3186194The youtube video means we're already teetering towards being put to sleep since she suspects we're a shadow already even if she'd still want to at least kill Sachiko. We need to remove Rei so that we'd actually win a battle vs the group as a whole caused by Yuu confronting them. Since we screwed that alabi up via signing our name instead of just leaving the diary page to make it look like Mari felt guilty, she's connecting dots much faster than she would in the original "plan." Yuu might not want to kill them as much as we do, but she's pretty damn close.>>3186144>shadows only exist because MGs existOr to expand on that Pandora's box metaphor, they're just a different type of shadow with the stuff that hope does just being their special shadow property? Erasing people's memory doesn't remove the circumstance that spawned a shadow to begin with most of the time, so it's just slapping a band-aid on internal bleeding.I'm just saying, there are multiple options here.>>3186020>Check with Okada about when that plane crash is happening so that we don't accidentally fuck up that alibi if it's supposed to be happening right now>Tour the mansion, including the shield generator. We barely know anything about the place we're using as a base. I'm guessing we need a keycard and security pass from Okada maybe?>>3186261Sounds like a comedy arc since Junko would be too embarrassed and blushing when it comes time to put her down.
>>3186243>femcel Nah. She has friends, can cook for herself and doesn't seem to mind the company of others. She is just a little introverted and might prefer 2D yaoi bois than the real thing, but that's it.>>3186261i like this.>>3186267>she's connecting dots much faster than she would in the original "plan."then >>3186183's letter might fall in line with our plans. It makes us see like a misunderstood person and pities us.>it comes time to put Rei down.I'd rather not do it; our shadow and we loved her muffins.
>>3186183>I need my general back. I need her at my side.change toI need my friend back. I need you by my side.
>>3186267I don't think Yuu would think Junko is involved in the massacre. If she keeps poking around she will come to the conclusion that Mari is probably involved. If she talks to Mari's parents she gets Okada's BS excuse. If she gets to Okada she finds us and we might not be able to protect her.That is why I want to give her a letter now to shift her attention from Mari to us. If she reads that letter and calls us on the phone and thinks...I should put Junko down. She is just as heartless as the other girls.>>3186288The general line is a reference to the first time Junko met Yuu back in the first or second thread. Junko kept on being edgy talking about how she was a demon. So why would anyone want to be her friend? Yuu countered with if Junko was a demon queen she would need a capable general to help her out.The line is something that only Junko and Yuu would know about so it proves that Junko is actually who she says she is and not an impersonator.
>>3186313I forgot that, my bad.but still add "I need my friend back" too
>>3186313Except we don't actually know she's doing that. I want to try and stay within the limit of what Junko is actually capable of doing and knowing. Yuu's character arc in this is just as important as Junkos even if we're getting Yuu parts a bit less often. She's not our puppet. she's our friend. I don't want to take her agency away when the draw of her portions (for me at least) is how she's reacting to things independently of Junko and piecing things together. It's also much less fun when you're controlling two characters working closely together that act exactly the same and get along.That's also why i keep on voting to find out about when the plane crash happens. If Mari is dead after she was seen acting strangely then Yuu's leads into Mari dry up and she's left to assume that Mari's family tried to send her away to get better after she started spouting shadowlings Since the plane crashed, she then would think that any shadows Mari made are stuck on the bottom of the ocean.There's still a slight chance of further questioning and some crit sucess on noticing how evil the mansion is, but Okada probably isn't dumb enough to actually harm Yuu after we just had that massacre go off under the pretense that somebody else took our prey from us. Yuu might not even make it past the front gate since she'd be trying to get answers and normal people don't like it when you break into their house in the middle of the night to ask something you could have asked during the daytime or via phone.TLDR Okada shouldn't be a threat to her if we get to faking Mari's death properly.
>>3186445I understand where you are coming from. My post is strictly conjecture based on my assumptions of the plot and meta-information. However it has been a couple of days since Junko left a note for her friend and I think it would be well with in her character to want to talk to her. Any speculation on events happening further than that are not in my vote and thus, are just speculation.I don't want to take Yuu's agency away. I am not suggesting we corrupt and puppet her. I want more interaction between the two characters. I want to leave it up to her (corruptor) what to make of us and choose her actions of her own free accord. Since we confirmed to her that we are alive there is no reason to ignore her.As our alibi for Mari's location. I agree we have to do something. I have wanted to do something since Mari died. There have been two options presented, both have advantages and disadvantages. I would gladly vote for either as I brought both of them up in the past.A.) Mari dies in a staged plane crash. Advantage: Mari is dead. No one will ask any questions. Disadvantages: Mari's family is wealthy and powerful. A plane crash is not a subtle way for someone to disappear. The "death" of a young heiress will attract media attention. Thus Mary can not go out in public without shapeshifting or a really good excuse for a long time. The same applies to shapeshifting into Mari.B.) We tell the girls an alternate version of what happened from Mari's prospective, telling enough of the truth to make the lie convincing. Mari was kidnapped by the gang that got liquidated by Mary. Some how she got away and is now in hiding. Advantages: We can still shapeshift into Mari/take Mary out in public without prying eyes from the general public. We could always stage the plane crash later if we run into trouble. Disadvantages: The girls will be concerned for her well being. They will probably think that she is spawning shadows. We could try to mitigate these factors by either posing as her or pretending that she is mad at her friends and wants nothing to do with them anymore.(Anons shit on this plan last thread because the wanted to see what would happen if we left everyone to their own devises and were worried about lying when we have a corrupt businessman in our pocket that could bribe his way out of an investigation.)C.) We do nothing and relay on the story that Okada told Mari's parents to buy us more time. Advantge: We have more time. Disadvantages: We are running low on said time. Answers no questions in a satisfactory manner. Keep it up and we will reap the consequences of our stupidity.We do not control Okada. If we are out, we have no clue what he might do. The house is fortified with many shadows. With out our presence who knows what would happen in that scenario. He might kill Yuu to try to earn our favor.
>>3186547>People were shitting on plan BI don't recall that(then again i have had a hard week and i'm not paying too much attention ot the other anons). On a personal opinion, we should convert C into plan B. >Disadvantages: The girls will be concerned for her well being.Then we as Mari should break up with them.
>>3186569I 100% agree. Its been a trying week for me too. Plus I'm trying to lurk the thread, while bashing out a couple of last minute work things, and getting my dinner plans in order for the evening.This was how I phrased it, >use one of our new burner phones.>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 phoneWe could always change it around or add stuff to it. I would have voted for it again but anons shot it down and it it now evening in game (it might be strange to get that message in the middle of the night.)
>>3186626Hmmm.... i would add after the "its not safe for me" that the kidnapping changed her and that now she feels like a monster.
>>3186626I would support this course of action once its a reasonsble hour in game to send it.
>>3186655This is how I would write it now. If we coordinate with Okada and send a copy to her parents we want to leave off the parts about shadows. The end might sound a little too suicide-y. >“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 the confusion when the place got attacked. The shadows were tearing people apart. It was terrible. I feel like a monster now. I left those people behind too. My uncle thinks that the gang was going to try to extort money out of him. I’m in hiding now. My old phone is gone. This one will be destroyed after this message. it’s not safe for me. Not that any of you would care about that. Everyone always used me for my money or my connections or tried to placate me with more money. I don't care about any of that anymore. I just wanted a simple life with regular friends. Was that too much to ask for? Goodbye and maybe I will see you again in another life."I already voted. Other anons should add it. I wrote that fuck-huge letter to Yuu so I don't think Corruptor needs more blocks of text from me.
>>3186728>“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 the confusion when the place got attacked. The shadows were tearing people apart. It was terrible. I feel like a monster now.

Goodbye and maybe I will see you again in another life."I changed the okada part, to avoid bringing the girls to his mansion and made it look like she indirectly credits herself as the creator of the shadow and that she feels repulsed by it.
>>3186547>BHow about sprinkling some truth into it:we tell them she was kidnapped by the gang, but created a shadow from her own fear that went on this killing spree. But she's sane enough to have dispatched of it herself.it takes care of these disadvantages partially
>>3186547I wasn’t shitting on plan b itself. The plan is good but the window to execute it passed and made it hard to actually enact due to the delay. I mean, Mari gets kidnapped and tells everyone two days later? If you wanna do plan b you have to get all of the holes in it poked and consider them before doing the plan.k or at least one should. Can’t say much more since I’m typing on iPad while at work
>>3186873I dont know about that. Two days after the massacre seems pretty reasonable, but we would have to send the message ASAP
>>3186873>Mari gets kidnapped and tells everyone two days later?victims of such crimes are usually too ashamed to come forward to begin with. Everyone knows thatIt's like you never raped anyone.
Collating the votes now so it would be>Ask mary to deliver something>Head back to the mansion>Write a letter>Check with Okada about the previous planwriting
>>3187351maybe also add the message to the girls, but we can do that after talking with okada.
"...do something for a moment. How about you go have some fun at the range. I'll call you when i'm done alright?""Okaaaaay.""How about this. Go get a dummy and place it 500m away from your position. Then fire as fast and accurately as possible and count how many you can fire in 10 seconds. You have until when i call you to deliver something alright?""I understand my queen. I'll do my best.""Good girl. Now go along."Mary skipped her steps excited on how she could show her skills to her queen. Although it is concerning how she would do the counting. In fact can she even count? No you will trust her. Maybe she has her own ways how to do it. Calling Goro away he emerge seconds later and ask where your room is. He leads you up to the staircase and through the door. You also asked a paper and pen which he points it on the drawer where a fountain pen and a paper is found inside the drawer. Although the fountain pen is too much you ask for a normal pen which he gets from his pocket and reminds you to return it or leave it on the desk for him to get when he gets back. He then walks out of the room to give you some privacy. Getting a paper and thinking of it's contents you settle for something longer. Well not that long but it's enough for a paper to fit inside.(1/?)
>>3187410>Dear Yuu,>I always disliked those horror movies you showed me, especially after you told me with hair like mine I could pass for one of those spooky ghost girls. Well now I think I know why those ghosts act the way they do. It turns out when you die, suddenly and violently, it really hurts. Betrayal only makes the sting worse. Then you’re trapped in oblivion with only the pain and your memories to keep you company. The pain turns to anger. It feels like any eternity, but one day you come back. The problem is everything is wrong, even your soul feels “off”, everything except for the anger. You feel like you’re going to explode. Yuu I don’t hate you, otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this. In fact, I know you would have fought with me if you hadn’t been pulled away. I can’t ever forgive the rest of the girls though, especially Mari, Sachiko, and Rei.>They should have know what they were doing was wrong. Then they violated your mind rather than standing by you; helping you grieve. They did it for convenience. How craven! That was one thing, but you know about my family. About my mom. I was all she had left. Understandably, she couldn’t take it. She spawned a shadow. I know you were messed up. They weren’t. It was there for weeks. It almost killed her. I was so weak then, it almost did the same to me. Then, there was that shadow of plague. All those kids, just withering away. At what point can carelessness become malice.>Yuu, I’m in over my head. Nothing makes sense anymore and I don’t think there is anyone else I can trust. I can’t go back to my mom like this. Sackiho knows more than she lets on. I know the rest of the girls would kill me if they found me like I am now. They might do the same to you too or just blank your mind again if they found out we are talking. Please be careful. >Yuu remember the day we meet. It must have been fate. Remember what we talked about. I need my general back. I need her at my side. I need to hear the words you said to me back then, even if they are a lie now.>Below you will find a phone number you can use it to reach me. I need to see you in person. There are things I have to say; things I can only show you face to face. >Please keep an open mind. Call ahead. I need to make sure the meeting is at some place safe and you aren’t followed. Also call if you’re in danger. I’ll come running. >P. S. I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but please watch out for my mother and if anything happens to me take care of her. Just like last, time burn this note after you read it. >You friend forever, >JunkoFinishing the letter you fold it into four and conveniently there is an envelope where you put the letter inside. Going outside you call for Mary to deliver something. Mary come running towards you her smiling creepy face still plastered on her face."My queen my queen i did two types of what you call speed shooting!""So how much arrows can you hit a target Mary?"(2/?)
>>3187424"When i do it with my homing it was slower i can do 10 in 10 seconds but when i remove my homing and zooooooooooooooom it like, very fast i can do 20 of them. Very fast. But when i did that the dummy broke. ehehehehehehehe!""So Mary how many dummy did you broke.""Five"Well Goro should start making new ones i guess. But that is not your problem."Well Mary good job. So here is what i want to do with you. You know Yuu Mitsukoshi?""Yuu....Yuuuuuu....You?""No not me Yuu.""Me? You want me to deliver the letter to me?"Oh god you swear you saw a movie something like this. But you remain patient. Or at least your patience which is already thin."Mary please listen to me. You need to deliver this to Mitsukoshi Yuu alright?""Oh! okay i think i know where she lives.""How?""Well.....I just do. It's like something i just know normally. In fact your own house is beside it right?"Okay maybe when converting Mary into something, you must have something passed from your memories. Another thing to ask when she returns.""Well that is good. Go to her window and sneak inside and put it on her desk. You must not wake Yuu up alright?""Ok! Be very quiet. Must not be seen and deliver the letter. Got it!""Also include this phone too.""Okay my queen. I will deliver this to Yuu with the phone.""Good girl. Now go and when you return i will have something for you.""OOOOOOH!! i will look forward to. I'm going now!"Mary glides around the area until she disappears from the woods and your sight. Hopefully she delivers it on Yuu. Discreetly. You decide to call Goro and thank his hospitality. You made an excuse where Mari goes back to mansion while you are going home. Goro insisted that you should stay for a night considering the happening currently but you made your assurance that you are going to be fine. Goro relented and bids you farewell. Outside, you jump through the night returning to Okada's mansion where you have a lot to talk about.........My name is Mary and my queen Junko is very good to me. She is my friend and i will do anything to make her happy. I am happy too but now i will deliver this letter to Mitsukoshi-san.Arriving at Junko house I peeked on Mitsukoshi-san's room. It's very dark and i can't see a thing. Also half of the curtain was covered so i can't see the room. Hmmm what should Junko would do? I think waiting would be better.8:30.....8:45......9:00......9:15....This is boring. Going below the house you have a brilliant idea. As long as Yuu doesn't find out. Anything would be ok right? Giggling at your genius plan, you go to the front door and right the door bell.Againand againThen a person comes out. She was a middle age woman and looks at you worried."Young lady. You know it's very dangerous at night?""Oh me? Don't worry about me. You see i have a letter to be delivered to Yuu.""To me?""No to Mitsukoshi Yuu-san"(3/?)
>>3187501"Oh forgive me. I swear my husband naming sense is getting a lot on me. Oh where are my manners. Please come in.""No no it's alright i just need to deliver it to her an i'll be on my way. It's very dangerous at night you know."Handling the letter to the lady and then a phone which she was confused about but didn't question it and accepted."I think i'll go now. Good evening Mrs. Mitsukoshi.""Good evening too young lady."Running away from their house i'm very excited what my queen has in store for me."..............."Hmmmm. A letter and a phone. What did Yuu have been doing? Or maybe this is from her photography club? Maybe i should check the letter. No no no this is for my daughter. She will tell me what is with the letter anyway.YUUUUUU!!! YUUUUUUUUU!!!!! YOU HAVE LETTER FOR YOU.Oh damn it i made a bad pun".........
>>3187501Goddamit mary, you lovable idiot.
>>3187501Yuu do realize that in weeb-land they use different pronouns, right?
>>3187531it's not!japan everything went as normal, except the language. Meanwhile America is the one that got stuck with the moon runes.
I had my misgivings about every step of this bring Yuu in plan but looked forward to the chaos. Things went exactly as expected but even earlier than I could have possibly imagined.
Arriving at Okada's mansion you immediately go to Okada's office where he looks at the papers and writing some signatures. Probably contracts or something. Noticing your arrival he smiles at you and stands up greeting you in his own way."Welcome my queen. I have a new information about the new shadow that is quite concerning right now.""What is it?""Do you remember Mary's massacre? It seems a shadow was born from one of its....survivor and now it is going to be same as ours. Own conciousness and it's own person. But currently it is it's own infancy so you still have a a chance to beat it.""And if i leave it be?""Then it would be hard for him to track. Or let your former teammate track it. They will assume he is the one who did the massacre.""About the plane crash plan.....""Not that is was intended my queen.""I think we need some change of plans.""Well i have another idea.""Give it to me.""Let's just say she was kidnapped then suddenly the massacre happened. She got out and the trauma was so intense she was transferred out of town and away from here to forget what is happening. At best her acquaintance of hers will give her well wishes at worst. They will ask questions. But they have empathy right? They will know the privacy of a traumatized lady not to bother her that much. Maybe we can stage a fake hospital somewhere out there that her teammates will visit to check on her. Then tomorrow we check you out and the out of the city. There are many leeways on this plan and i will leave it to your discretion if you agree to my plan. Of course if you have one please give it to me and i will do something about it.""I will think about it.""If that is all, i'll be here if you need me."Okada resumes his reading of papers and then affixing his signatures. He must be busy laundering money from various companies he had. Leaving Okada to his own devices you return to your room waiting for..."My Queen i'm home""Good job Mary. Did Yuu find out?""Nope. Yuu didn't find me at all.""So you left the letter and the phone in her desk.""Nope i gave it to her mother.""............say what?""You see my queen this is what happened...."And so Mary told you about her waiting like a hawk at your rooftop to her eventual boredom then a conversation with Mrs. Mitsukoshi and then returning home."And so here i am my queen.""I guess that works...."You sigh at Mary actions. This is bad like very bad. Good thing Yuu is probably brooding on her room."So my Queen what will be my reward?"Oh yeah you said that.>What should be Mary reward?>Headpats>Belly rubs?>Brush her hair?>Write-in
>>3187599>Belly rubs?she's like a weird dog-cat-person-thing fusion, right? she'll like it.
>>3187599>"You had orders to sneak in and place it on her desk, Mari. It was supposed to be a stealth operation. You not only let yourself be seen, you don't even realize what you did wrong. As such I believe you do not deserve a reward."
>>3187637>you don't even realize what you did wrong.i don't think we should scold her for something she didn't knew she did wrong. But you are right in that she doesn't deserve a full reward.
>>3187659We should probably admit that we screwed up. I don't know wtf anons were thinking. Her character image is a yandere. We're lucky that she didn't kill Yuu in her sleep.
>>3187599>You made a very big mistake but it is also my fault for not considering how my orders could go wrong. We can both make up for it. Who was the person that made the shadow? We're going to use it for a training exercise.>It's old school shadow purifying time. We can probably siphon some of it off but I think we should practice our old magical girl skills and maybe try to learn new ones like a hope/love infused barrier.After the fight is done we can ask the victim if they want to forget.
>>3187756i mean, i don't know why she didn't open the window. On the other hand, she didn't Kool Aid'ed through the wall or killed the mom.I'm conflicted.
>>3187599>Write-in"You did do what I asked, but you don't even realize that you did it in an unacceptable way. Your reward will be the same as your punishment; we will spend time together and I will teach you what it means to be stealthy"
>>3187637>>3187703>>3187809"Hmmmm....Junko is somehow alive. Then Mari disappeared then shadows have been disappearing lately. I was meant to report some of the higher tier shadows but for some reason when i try to ping it. It somehow disappears. Was it that Mari found Junko and worked together in secret? No that is impossible. Mari left Junko to....and that would piss Junko off. She...didn't kill her right?""YUUUUUU!!! YUUUUUUUUU!!!!! YOU HAVE LETTER FOR YOU.""Coming!"writing...
>>3187599>"You did do what I asked, but you don't even realize that you did it in an unacceptable way. Your reward will be the same as your punishment; we will spend time together and I will teach you what it means to be stealthy"
>>3187961"You had orders to sneak in and place it on her desk, Mari. It was supposed to be a stealth operation. You not only let yourself be seen, you don't even realize what you did wrong. As such I believe you do not deserve a reward.""B-but my queen. Yuu didn't see me.""Her mother did though. She will ask question Mary. What if her mother describes you perfectly?""Bu-but....i know that..."".......""I'm sorry...p-please don't leave me i will do better next time."At this point Mary sobs at your feet mumbling her excuses and apologies at you. Right now you have a rough night. Hopefully Yuu doesn't ask too many questions at you.>Sleep>Go see Okada about his new plan>Investigate (who?)>Go somewhere (where?)>Go to the massacre site and confront the shadow>Write-in
>>3188051>Go see Okada about his new plan
>>3188051>>Go see Okada about his new plan
>>3188059>>3188091"Reflect on what you have done. Next time listen to what i say.""Y-yes...."You leave Mary there and go to Okada's office still looking at the neverending papers he had on his hand."Back so soon my queen? So which plan will we going to be for Mari's "disappearance"?">Plan A was when Okada and you have an old plan to send Mari (can be a fake or just no one) to ride a plane and crash it in the middle of the ocean. The authorities will find the black box why does the plane crashed but they won't try to look for survivors as it would be impossible on a vast ocean. (Can be change what situation that proves to be believable or at least make the investigation not to pursue Mari.>Plan B was to make Mari kidnapped by a human trafficker, was at the time of massacre and severely traumatized. Okada in his good graces offered Mari to get out of the city and maybe transfer school to a new one to forget everything happened. (Can be changed what situation would fit that will prevent the girls from chasing/asking questions about Mari.)>Plan C write-in.OR>Talk about the shadow in the massacre area.
>>3188208>Plan C write-in.>Go to the docks and send this message.>“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 the confusion when the place got attacked. The shadows were tearing people apart. It was terrible. I feel like a monster now. I think that the gang was going to try to extort money out my family. I'm supposed to be in a safehouse, but i can't live in this place knowing what i have become. I'm leaving on a cargo ship to whatever place it goes. My old phone is gone. This one will be destroyed after this message. it’s not safe for me or for the others. Not that any of you would care about that. Everyone always used me for my money or my connections or tried to placate me with more money. I don't care about any of that anymore. I just wanted a simple life with regular friends. Was that too much to ask for? Goodbye and maybe I will see you again in another life."
>>3188208>I'll personally go along with whatever panic plan anons come up with. After that>Talk about the shadow in the massacre area. Let Odaka think we're gonna siphon it out for power rather than us actually polishing our old MG skills.
>>3188208>"Also include this phone too."Uhh guys, how is Yuu supposed to call us when we had three phones. The first we gave to Mary. The second we gave to Yuu (why? we wanted her to call us. That’s why we gave her a phone number in the letter. She has a cell phone and Junko’s old cell phone) The third was to use for a potential alibi and to be destroyed. Unless we are taking her call on Mary’s phone or Okada’s landline (really bad idea). >Mary’s little misadventure. Goddamn she’s dumb as a post. I still like her though. It will be really funny to find out what Yuu, ace dectective, thinks when she finds out the girl that deliverd the phone looked like Mari.>write in >Okada I need another one of those phones. ASAP. I get me a car and driver. >We are going with option B.Send the girls the text message:>>“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 the confusion when the place got attacked. The shadows were tearing people apart. It was terrible. I feel like a monster now. There were innocents in there and I just ran away again. I was too scared. I think that the gang was going to try to extort money out my family but they still hurt me. I feel dirty now. I couldn’t stay here it reminds me too much of what happened and there might be more attempts to take me. I couldn’t chance it happening again. I've already left. My old phone is gone. This one will be destroyed after this message. It’s not safe for me anymore, not that any of you would care about that. Everyone always used me for my money or my connections or tried to placate me with more money. I don't care about any of that anymore. I just wanted a simple life with regular friends. Was that too much to ask for? Goodbye and maybe I will see you again in another life."
>>3188686>Oh and afterwards destroy the phone and SIM card (the new one we sent the message from not the we gave the out the number to. )
I think I'm gonna leave this be for today and tomorrow since tomorrow I can't run. So I'll pick this up on Sunday since I feel this is one of the major decisions which need some planning so keep up the votes or your write-in. So good night and sweet corrupted dreams :)
>>3188686>Uhh guys, how is Yuu supposed to call us when we had three phones.we could use Mary's phone for the message. in that way our burner phone is still intact and then we go tomorrow to the store for a new phone for mary.
>>3189147That could work. I just dont't want Mary to think that we are punishing her any harder. If anything last night proves why Mary needs a phone.
>>3189153Maybe we could use this to exemplify that we also make mistakes? And we can get her another one tomorrow as first thing in the morning. Also since we confirmed she has the rationale of a 10 years old, we need to teach her how to think better so that she doesn't do something similar in the future. Punishing her without teaching her how to do it better the next time will only make her bitter.
>>3189159>Maybe we could use this to exemplify that we also make mistakes? Exactly. I think we should talk about teamwork and communication with her as well. It seems like something Junko would take pretty personally.
>>3189166Yeah, lack of it got us killed last time. The new junko should try to drill in everybody's head that teamwork is the most important thing to have.
>>3188208Plan B,Thanks to mary it's a safe bet that yuu's going to ask her mom who delivered our letter, find out "Mari" is with us and likely confront us about it and a plane crash would definitely tip off that we have direct ties to Okada.If so and we still want yuu on our side were going to have to set the record about her "condition", something along the lines that we found out about her kidnapping by human traffickers and went after because even she didn't deserve what they had planned for her, she became like that soon after we found her, she massacred the kidnappers but has no recollection prior and became attached to us either out of gratitude, because she sees how were the "same" or if some part remembers and is guilty that it was her idea to leave us to die.May not be foolproof but would give us something to work with.
>>3189176we can literally shapeshift into Mari, we can say that we delivered the letter but under her disguise.
>>3189176That was a bridge I was going to cross when we heard back from Yuu. If she brought it up during the phone conversation Junko would tell her that this was one of the things she needed to discuss/show her in person.Then we would bring Mary (hammering into her not to hurt Yuu or come out until we called her and we are going to be talking about some nasty stuff so she needs to be strong for us.) have her stay in a back room during our meeting. Junko would tell the story that she had been stalking Mari (maybe throw in the details of our prank) and stumbled upon evidence of a break in. We tracked down her kidnappers but they had been subdued by a shadow Mari had spawned Presumably while Mari was being raped and she had already gotten away. We found her in the garage at Okada's mansion, right under our nose, but we were too late and Mari had already been consumed by the shadows and she was functionally dead. Junko felt bad and used her powers to try to bring Mari back to life. It worked but backfired in some way. The shadow Mari had none of her memories and acted like a child but was ridiculous strong. So we named her Mary and sent her out to kill the rest of the trafficker as justice for what they did to Mari.We then call Mary out and let Yuu meet her for the first time.We know Mary has no clue what happened before she meet us so we can use that to our advantage.
>>3189199before anyone asks about the alibi text I am leaning to being very truthful with Yuu during our meeting. She is Junko's best friend so would figure it out if we lied too much. We will strait up tell her (during the meeting) that the text sent sent out to the girls was from us. We needed a way to keep the girls from looking for Mari and protect Mary from being hunted.
>>3189207I like this, but lets be sure that mary gets under control or behaves herself. Maybe we should send her on a training mission of sorts again? The idea would be that we would be trailing her and only intervening when she is about to do something wrong, correct her and then return to the background.
I'm clearly going to have to actually read the letters instead of enjoying the carnage as things spiral out of control from the sidelines.At this point the best cover story is probably to claim Mari spawned a shadow that killed the men and that Mari is being sent away for counseling/relaxation so that any Mari sightings are counted as the shadow instead of them realizing it's the "real" Mari. Yuu may be rapidly figuring things out, but we can still finish Rei off before Yuu can interfere.Them knowing about shadow Mari means we can probably ambush them if Mari is bait and we actually train in how to cloak ourselves from being scanned. We have whatever shadowling army Okada has at his disposal available for minions. We need to actually use it in order to thin them out so that we can take on Okada in the future.Focus on that spawning shadow and then take out their DPS so that we actually have a fighting chance against the MG group if/when things are beyond our control. Making up excuses only distracts from making sure we're prepared. Making up excuses also implies we think we're in the wrong. We don't have to justify what we've done. They murdered us and we want vengeance. Yuu will understand.
>>3188208>>3188686Now that it's not super late I think I should clarify my vote to deal with the Mari situation>Plan B modified:>"Okada, I trust you've done things like this before. Officially, Mari was recovered shortly after the massacre. She is traumatized but physically health. She is being kept hidden for her own safety and to speed her recovery. No one is to see her except possibly her parents. Tonight, I will send out a message from Mari to the magical girls. It should keep them from caring too much about her parting. Okada, you should allow leaks and rumors to spread out of your organization starting tomorrow. Not too much for each source and not too fast that that they will sink the official narrative, but enough to paint a grim unofficial picture if someone looks into things too deeply-- Mari's mental state steady declined, night after night, following her escape. Mari has mood swings and amnesia. She acts like a dimwitted fool most of the time. She harms herself. Worryingly, she has begun to display symptoms of Dissociative identity disorder. Her alters' name is Mary. She is a little girl. Unofficially she is being shuttled about different safe house to hide the shame her current state brings the family and shopped around to specialists searching for a fix for her condition. If a meeting with her parents is necessary send me to one of your out of town properties and I will act in Mari's place. I'm giving you a lot of latitude to make decisions. If prying eyes start making inquires we can always stage that plane accident later. Have "Mari" meet an untimely but merciful death en route to some foreign doctor.then. >>3188686we don't want to include any obvious locations or methods of transportation, like ships, in our message keep it as vague as possible.>Then destroy the new phone and sim to keep people from calling the number
>>3189512But that paints a target directly on Okada's back. That's the oposite of what we want.
>>3189516We don't care about if questions are raised about Okada (Both plans link back to him in the end.) Okada is largely insulated from mundane threats. As far as what the public knows, he is a scummy, but successful businessman. We don't want the magical girls asking questions. They are our real threat and we want to keep them away from Okada at all costs. Junko's text is to deal with them; the rest of the plan deals with the general public and Mari's parents. All of the magical girls will write off Mari when they get our text (except Yuu, but we will deal with her personally later and she won't share her findings with the others).
a little bit unrelated, but i found a picture that might fit mary's new look.
Just a heads up going to run this afternoon. The votes is still open till then see you this afternoon.
>>3192636Woops dropped my trip
What are we voting for?
>>3192948... i think its B. this one >>3188686 seems like the most complete option
>>3188686support this, but we can make it a voicemessage from Mari's actual phone, can't we? I also think we, as Mari, should admit that it was the shadow she spawned and that it looked like her.This would might also tell Yuu that shadows can be controlled with our Mary
>>3193274Yeah. A voice message works way better than a text.
>>3189337We are probably going to have to supervise Mary on missions for the foreseeable future anyway. What about play acting. We could shapeshift into Yuu and coach her on how to act around "normal friends". We could try to teach Mary how to shapeshift too. >>3190249That picture probably fits Mary better than Yuno's.>>3193274There are two issues with a voice message: The first is we are not sure how good of a thespian Junko is. If she is insincere the girls could pick up that something is afoot. The second is what if one of the girls actually answers the phone. Its one thing to lie in a message, its another to lie with a person interrogating you back.As far as spawning shadows. I think its better if its vague. The girls would probably presume that Mari spawned the shadows anyway. If we come out and say Mari spawned the shadows, the girls might presume Mari is enough of a threat that they should try to track her down anyway. that would be a problem.>>3192948What explanation we want to use to explain Mari's disappearance. Option A is staging a plane crash. Option B is based on the truth, Mari was kidnapped and traumatized. So she is leaving the city.
>>3193470>Its one thing to lie in a message, its another to lie with a person interrogating you back.if you leave a voicemail you are not interrogated back
>>3193470>There are two issues with a voice message: The first is we are not sure how good of a thespian Junko is. If she is insincere the girls could pick up that something is afoot. The second is what if one of the girls actually answers the phone. Its one thing to lie in a message, its another to lie with a person interrogating you back.Whatsapp exists, facebook's app has a voice mesage option and we can mail them an audio file. there is no need to actually call them and hope they don't answer.
>>3193491Not to sound like a Luddite anon, but how do you send a voicemail to someone's phone without giving them the option to pick up the phone? Plus with a text we could send the message simultaneously to all the girls. We would have to leave the same message four times. Giving the first girl a chance to call back.
>>3188208>>3188587Amending my vote slightly in the off chance anyone else goes for it.Mari leaves a message on Sachiko's phone saying the people in that massacre were kidnappers and rapists. She ended up spawning a shadow that looks like her and killed them because she couldn't transform.Her uncle Okada is keeping everything about her being there quiet and is sending her away to try and get her some therapy. Her parents didn't even care enough to ask what happened so they don't even realize. She wont really be able to use the phone while there so this is goodbye for now.>We take on that baby shadow. It's time tor us to train our rusty MG powers and try to make hope enhanced shields too. >After we purify the shadow we give the survivor the option to let us erase her memory if she wants us to and let her remember that she chose not to remember if possible. We don't want the memory loss to torment her.
>>3193558Derp I almost forgot. What do you guys think about making Mary The Evil Queen so that we can be a secret boss? They can get stressed and harangued by Okada's shadow forces that we send after them while they're on completely the wrong track about what's going on. We're doing decent on wearing down the MGs but we aren't actually weakening Okada when we're gonna have to kill him at the end.
>>3193565that sounds nice and also gives her the attention she wants.BUT. we have to fucking train her for the role. Right now she is a ten year old with the attention span of a meth addict.
>>3193574She can be the spooky dark queen in the background until her debut. Training might be needed if we do something even slightly complicated but her just being a powerful shadow that controls a bunch of others is the basics of what we need.Maybe make her a Shadow-Punisher? She sends her shadows after the girls because Mary (queen) knows what Mari did and how they went along with it.
>>3193558I agree on taking on the shadow but we might want to wait until tomorrow, during the day. Junko wore herself out training today and it is evening, peak hours for magical girls to be prowling about.>>3193565It is going to be a long time before Mary could ever sell that. As far as Okada goes, that's why I wanted to bring in Yuu. Have her research Okada's prophecy and give us an outside opinion. Plus she would be an ace in the hole if Okada decides to try to fuck us over.
>>3193619>>3193610but are we all in agreement that she needs to be trained so a "ringing the bell" moment doesn't happen again, right?
>>3193550you open your whatsappgroup of magical girls and get on that record button.Those are teenagers who grew up with this tech, not almost 30 somethings whose only social interactions are on imageboards>>3193565I agree with the other anon, Mary can't pull that off>>3193626yes
>>3193619We don't need to bring Yuu "in" to do that. Just go to some internet cafe and send a message asking if she can try to covertly research about some prophecy concerning a dark queen of corruption ushering forth an age of darkness.I can also wait until tomorrowI just figured that it would be best to take care of the shadow before they muster up the group to go searching for something similar to us and we spent the rest of the day thinking up plans and/or eating sweets.>>3193651>I agree with the other anon, Mary can't pull that offMary doesn't have to speak to be declared the dark queen. The shadows we send after the MGs can say the false information instead.
>>3193541Sorry anon, I have to plead boomer when it comes to that stuff. >>3193626I am all for training Mary. In my mind Junko probably sees her like an annoying little sisteror possibly like a daughter, since she created her. So she would be interested in training her Your "ringing a bell" reference doesn't ring a bell for me.
>>3193669>Your "ringing a bell" reference doesn't ring a bell for me.i mean that mary twists the rules so that she fucked up in the general description of things but still did everything "by the book". A.k.a. Mary avoided being detected by yuu, but instead went to the front door, rang the bell and in plain light gave her mom the phone.
>>3193679we should pavlovlianly train her
>>3193831..i understand the concept but i don't know how that will help us, because she already obeys us to a fault.
>>3193837the reference didn't ring a bell with you?
>>3193846i hope this isn't a joke. i'm very stupid with written jokesyes it did, but i don't know how ringing a bell o saying some special word will help us when we can tell her " stop" and she immediately will.
>>3193855was just a joke, dude
>>3193859...part of me was expecting that. those things don't tend to translate well.
So severe write-ins like>>3189512Then>>3188686>>3189176and several votes for Plan BWriting now

At best they would say. Yeah that happened please take care of my daughter."You spit at them imagining how Mari's parents would probably act. Which Okada should perfectly describe at."I'm going to need another one of tho-""Here"Okada tossed you a nondescript phone at you."I was gonna use it for the plane crash to call the pilot but since that was scrapped i guess i don't have any use at it."Then i'll need a driver to drive me at the docks."The shadowspectre is still at the garage. Meet him and you can go on your way."Going outside of Okada's office you passed by where you left Mary.>Should you get Mary to accompany you?>Yes>NoSorry for the delay. Grandparents forced me to buy their groceries on me
>>3194422>Should you get Mary to accompany you?>YesBeing a good leader means that we have to accept our own mistakes, and sending mari on a critical mision like the one with Yuu is our fault. We can explain her future training on the way to the docks.

We have to work together. I was upset when I heard about what you did but the fault partially falls on me because I was the leader. You see the girl who lead my team settled on a bad plan and it cost us. However one of the other girls should have spoke up. There would have been no disgrace in a tactical retreat before getting in over our heads. I gave you a phone for a reason Mary. If you have any problems just call me. The minute you realized that you did not know what to do you should have called me. Don't worry too much about this time, but the next time could be deadly. It would be really sad if something happened to me; I would feel the same if you got hurt.

>>3194442>>3194489>Mom? Did you say a letter?>Yes. A young lady probably an older than you sent you this.>Thanks. I'll read it on my room>Oh Yuu. Having an admirer sending a letter at the middle of the night.>Shut up mom! This is probably school stuff.>Furiously blushing at your mothers joke you go to your room to examine this mysterious letter.

>>3194664OOH BOY, SHE MAD.
>>3194664Dis gunna B gud.
>>3194700MG OF MURDER
Visiting the room you previously scolded Mary, you still see her sulking at the side of the bed. When you approach, you see her slinking a little bit afraid of what you will do. You sat beside her and hug her to alleviate her fears."I know I've talked to you before about how I died. You see we are a team now Mary. We have to work together. I was upset when I heard about what you did but the fault partially falls on me because I was the leader. You see the girl who lead my team settled on a bad plan and it cost us.

Please don't leave me."You gave Mary a headpat which makes her nuzzle on your body more. After you feel that Mary is back in her old self you stand up and leave the room."Come Mary we have something to do.""Yes my Queen!"And so both of you go to the garage where the Shadowspectre is waiting for you which transform into a big musclebound body guard and all of you enter the car."Go to the docks."The shadow just nodded and drives you through the dock. Today will be the day Mari will disappear from their group.(1/? long update)
............Arriving at the docks still feels a little bit bitter to your taste. The warehouse where the last time you we're left dead is still there albeit with the lack of room and some holes in the wall."My queen....i don't feel so good"And Mary has motion sickness. The more you know."Mary go out and maybe puke somewhere."Mary bolted out of the car and puked a black ichor with....rainbows? Was it from the cake? No no maybe you are imagining things. These past days is too stressful. Maybe after this stunt you and Mary will have some downtime to yourself.Going outside you find a suitable spot where you will send your message to the group. Thankfully you still remember their numbers and so you start you long wall of text.>“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 the confusion when the place got attacked. The shadows were tearing people apart. It was terrible. I feel like a monster now. There were innocents in there and I just ran away again. I was too scared. I think that the gang was going to try to extort money out my family but they still hurt me. I feel dirty now. I couldn’t stay here it reminds me too much of what happened and there might be more attempts to take me. I couldn’t chance it happening again. I've already left. My old phone is gone. This one will be destroyed after this message. It’s not safe for me anymore, not that any of you would care about that. Everyone always used me for my money or my connections or tried to placate me with more money. I don't care about any of that anymore. I just wanted a simple life with regular friends. Was that too much to ask for? Goodbye and maybe I will see you again in another life."Steeling yourself you press mass sent to all your group. Excluding Mari since well...speaking of Mary, where she is now?"Mary! are you ok there.""Yes! I'm already done.""Alright let's go home."Tossing the phone you summon your sword and smashed it to tiny pieces and kicked some of it away.(2/?)
>>3194704The question is who is getting murked. Going frilly was the last thing I thought Yuu would do after reading that.
>>3194733the leader; sashimi, or whatever her name was.
*At Sachiko's room*"Hmmm so this goes to this and...i think this is good enough. Hm?"Her phone buzzes notifying a new message was recieved. Opening her phone it was sent by an unknown number. Reading the content her face was filled with suspicion. Immediately she called Kanna, Rei and Yuu simultaneously."Everyone Mari is in danger. I need all your help. If you have read the message Mari sent you then you already know the contents. Now i need to send you where Mari could probably be. Rei, go to the airport. See if there is a private charter flight named from Okada. Knowing them they will have a list where Mari probably is. Kanna go to the bus station. You are near maybe Mari is still there. Yuu go to the port. There is a cruise ship that will depart in two hours. You can still make it there. I will check on Mari's apartment and ask the receptionist if Mari bring some travelling bags to her and maybe the taxi where she would probably have rode to any of the stations i ask you to go to. Report anything if you find something. NOW GO!"Standing in the middle of your room you pose yourself as you shout.>TRANSFORM!!After the showy bits of your clothes being transformed into Battle Magical Girl yo-"SACHIKO KEEP IT DOWN!! YOU WILL DISTURB THE NEIGHBORS!""Sorry Mom! I will not do it again!"Quietly opening your window you fly to Mari's apartment hoping there would be a clue before your group will never see her again.(3/?)
.......After reading Mari's message and Sachiko call you divert your direction to the port where Mari's could probably be. Your destination was on Okada's mansion where you thought Mari would be hiding but if Mari is getting out of the town then you will fucking beat her with her poor excuse she has been. You clench your fist on this situation. It's all messed up. You should be happy right now but if you deduce something about it. Junko is a shadow. From her phone, at the back of her house, the familiar feeling of her house that was dispelled with hope which you felt from Junko, the mysterious disappearance of shadows. All of it. In the shadows Junko still works as a MG yet at the same time she can't risk being seen by your group or they will gun her down. Arriving at the dock you see the big ship floating on the harbor. You sneak on the ship not wanting to be seen. When you are at the top most of the ship, you released a skill where it was very useful finding things.>SCAN!!Your whole world turns blue and you can see down below where people are milling around. Some people are readying to bunk and some are putting their luggage on their room suite. Looking every floor you don't see anything that resemble Mari. In fact you will see a white blinking person like an IFF. Canceling your scan you read what Mari message sent you again. You skimmed it a lot and Sachiko urgent message was not helping at all.>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 the confusion when the place got attacked. The shadows were tearing people apart. It was terrible.

Hell you will do it.>TRACK!!You see a white like thread where it leads straight away from the docks. Realizing where it leads, you jump away as fast as you can hoping that you can catch up whatever that is waiting you there.(4/5)
>>3194817>You see a white like thread where it leads straight away from the docksIts mary's rainbow puke, right?I know is not, but the idea of her puking rainbows all the way to okada's mansion is funny.
The fake Mari text sounds a little bit like drunken a suicide note.
>>3194900I wrote it like that to be ambiguous if she was skipping town or committing suicide.
>>3194900well, "Mari" got transformed into a shaadow and she was supposedly raped and tortured. It makes sense that it reads like a suicide note.
Mary who is pretending to be ok is still puking her hearts out. To be honest you should be disgusted by the display but for some reason she pukes rainbows. Does that mean she has a little bit of hope left in her body? Rubbing her back to help her out, you hear noises coming closer to your position."So hey is this the last shipment we going to make?""Yeah, with how the things blows up all of them are laying low now. Only the bigger groups are just pretending that they are the ones who attacked Kaju's group. Motherfucker had it coming.""Well after this i think i'll go blow my money on hookers. It's been too long since i have my fun with Ayaka-chan.""Man stop wasting your money on some whore you should go with me drinking with bros and having a mahjong night.""Yeah keep dreaming you little shit. I have enough of your cheating bastards.""No you can't even tell from a tanyao and a pinfu you pathetic jerk. And you always mess up with counting especially at baiman.""No you idiot i can count, i can add and subtract but im not an idiot."The two of them argued about their eventual plans of downtime. Good thing Mari is done puking to herself."I'm done my queen....i think.""Good let's get out of her-"*BANG*A loud crash of container box was heard a little ways from your position peeking out you see....."Yuu?"....................Battle BGM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcG3rONzw98You didn't expect something like this but there are a group of people who are loading something on a ship. You don't know what is inside but you feel that Mari is one of those in the container. There is 25 people with different weapons ranging from blunt weapons, wooden batons, pistols and worst an assault rifle. You summon your knuckles and readying your stance.>Yuu Skill list>HASTE: Buffing yourself or your teammate, increases speed for 3 post>EMPOWER: Buffing yourself or your teammate, increases attack for 3 post>EVASION: Buffing yourself of your teammate, increases your senses for 3 post.PASSIVE: Danger Sense: When Evasion and Haste is buffed.

>>3194969Yes of course.
Gonna cook and eat some dinner. Keep voting. Excited to see how this will turn out.
>>3194994I'm just laughing my ass off at how hard anons have failed at fooling Yuu.
Regardless of if Yuu calls for backup it will take some time for them to arrive. Her best bet is to try to draw the thugs into a funnel, since the guys up front aren't armed. There is two paths we can take. >>3195042Well right now she is storming boat full of yakuza thugs instead of storming Okada's mansion so the plan kind of worked. Considering how good the girls are at committing to the most lethal choice of action it's no wonder why Junko died. Someone was going to get killed doing something stupid eventually.
>>3195042but we did manage to fool Yuu. She still doesn't know that we have mari under our command and still believes that mari is skipping town or trying to rescue the other kidnapped girls
Dumb question. Can Yuu call the police? Last time I check a bunch of guys with guns and kidnapped girls is not kosher over there.
>>3195136I dont think she is thinking properly and her position has been revealed.
>>3195150Fair point that makes calling the rest of the girls an issue too. Double Goddammit Yuu.I thought you were the smart one.
>>3195154on the bright side, when/if she fails, we can rescue her and nurse her until she recovers.
>>3195159I thought something like this was going to happen, but I thought Yuu would waltz right into the club where Mary's massacre took place. Then she would proceed to get her ass kicked by the shadow in there.
>>3195154She doesn't want the other girls to interfere with the curbstomping she wants to give Mari and normal humans are kinda weak. Mary massacred an entire building. Yuu can handle a small group on a dock that can't even reach her if she jumps. She could just do a Cuchulain and chuck rocks until they all die.Magical girls are way stronger than everyone there. Heck, these guys are evil enough that she could probably just do some modified memory wipe spell to knock them all unconscious if she had a knack for enfeebling magic. The assault rifles are the "threat" and even if Yuu has crappy shields she can just shove one in front and walk to them. I dunno how she knows there are assault rifles inside but I'm gonna assume her scanning figured that out. The real issue is if MGs are glass canons or not since they seem superhuman in every other way.>>3194927Assuming that I understand the stuff Junko and Mary have been doing casually.(eg. I saw no mention of climbing up so I'm assuming they actually jumped/hopped up to a rooftop instead of looking for a fire escape or using shields as steps.)>Haste>Rip off a metal something (pole?) from the ground and toss it at a blue guy.

>>3195206Corruptor what kind of cover is on the ship/what is its general layout?
>>3195239just full of container crates stacked to each other. That is why there are people on the bow and at the entrance.
>>3195206Are those ele magics exclusive to Rei? I'm wondering if there's something weak we can do that's still useful vs regular humans? Eg. Rei could do giant rocks but Rei would end up doing something weaker like a sandstorm if she tried that? Theses guys are just an obstacle in her path right now.I recall there being tons of holes in the warehouse from what I assume are partially from attacks the girls made. Would it be reasonable to say that Yuu could just punch her way through the deck and then tear through the ceiling when she's below where Mari should be or even just break the supports to make Mari fall down to her?
>>3195251Anon, she just has buffs, her hands, and her feet. Mary is with Junko so...>>3195248No superstructure or gantries? How far/ high are the containers from the guys at the entrance. Sorry about all the questions.
>>3195251As far as the girls know. All of them can learn elemental magic. But to do it takes a lot of time, concentration and some little talent on it. For example: Mari have a wind affinity due to having a clue of shooting arrows very very fast. She just meditating with the supervision of Rei and obtained Wind Magic.Yuu on the other hand has a versatile skill set although she didn't bother to learn magic since she wants to be like Junko.....or at least its her opinion of whatever Junko has, she also have. (Although that would be pretty ridiculous for Yuu that from the start they have different skill set already.)
>>3195262The crates are stack in 3's i think that is 2 storey building high or 3. No gantries. It's just a heavy equipment doing all the work since the wharf is just an abandoned dock.
I know I'm probably only talking for myself but I'm generally disinterested in the fighting and rather we move on with plot.I know it serves for us to learn your system and you to iron out some issues, but I sit this one out.the decision to not call the other MGs wanting to do it alone to find Mari is more rather meta
>>3195268OK. Well I unfortunately have to go to sleep so that I can have at least some sleep before i cram in all the studying for a test that I should have done this afternoon. Since people can't see her powers and you said she tries to copy Junko;>Wait for the guys to come a little closer, jump over them or use some little mini shields as stepping stones if we aren't in a revealing skirt.>Else, parkour our way past the bulk of them with wall runs. Knock out any people that get in our way.If her actions are superhuman enough If the other anons think Yuu wants to call for backup instead of confronting Mari herself then those actions can happen before she runs in.What are the chances that she uses mini shields as makeshift dusters in combat?
>>3195315kind of not much time for a phone call when you dynamic entry into twenty guys, some armed.
>>3195315I think it's the opposite. She's only after Mari to confront her for what she did. If she calls for backup, the backup could easily just mindwipe her again from her perspective. I'm not sure how she expected to beat Mari given Mari's ranged advantage but I guess that lack of stamina is a carryover from when she was an MG.
>>3195233>>3195235So parkour it is like>>3195318 while knocking them along the way and then subdue the ones with AR.>>3195318She has no mini-shields please refer to>>3194927 for Yuu Skill lists.
>>3195318>we aren't in a revealing skirtWhat genre are we in again? What if the horn-dog thug is the guy we are jumping after and he is going to be too busy gawking a frilly pantsu to fire his weapon.
The goons are creeping to her closer as Yuu frantically looks for a way out. Even though you can 1v1 them very easily, against a group is a different story. Best thing is to hit and run. Bolting trough the side, the goons starting to chase you. Jumping at the crate, the ones that carries blunt weapons are charging at you>DANGER SENSE ACTIVATEDThe guys at the entrance are readying their pistols as they fire at your position. You dodge the incoming bullets as one of their allies got hit by a stray bullet. Another one approach you to hit your head and you immediately duck and kick him on the stomach sending him below and knocking 2 guys below. The last one is chasing at you while you run ready to jump at the ship where one guy at the bow of the ship readying his sights at you. Jumping the ship he starts to fire yet the shots are too wide as he didn't expect you to jump very very fast. The one chasing you who likes to pretend like he can sort of fly, drop so quickly on the water. Flying through the ship, you extend your feet which your cheesily shout.>FLYING KICK......You roll your eyes on Yuu actions. It seems she is still watching those cheesy hong kong martial arts action flicks that her mother likes to watch. No wonder she likes knuckles as her weapon."My queen, my queen!!

Either she thinks Yuu's got this (Then why was Junko scared off by a couple of guys with pistols during Mari's kidnapping?) or her corruption is worse than I thought.
>>3195319even I could write an app that sends my GPS coordinates to select phone numbers at the press of a button. but that was besides the point.>>3195321I didn't mean that our player knowledge on what our actual MC wants would skew any decision. I meant I'm not interested in playing out fights when I want the story to progress.for me it's uninteresting how exactly she runs away or disables them all or gets caught, than what the outcome will be.Id find it somewhat boring to have the fight for a day of our time, not furthering the plot.But as I said, that's probably only me
>>3195417>>3195419>Rei anything on your side?>I do but the charter flight that the Okada requested was cancelled.>What about you Kanna?>I tried finding anyone with rich looking lady but there isn't.

>>3195456Because seeing Yuu means that the other MGs are nearby and if they are not, well, we can rescue her before she dies.
Running towards the crate near the entrance you jump on it and try to topple it on the people below. Yet you struggle very hard as the container budges little by little. Should have buffed EMPOWER to make this easier though. Still what on earth are these crates content inside are?Roll1d100+10 (+10 due to heavy loaded container crate contents.)

>26>DC:25 Almost successleaning yourself on the other side of the crate, you push you feet and the crate slowly moved. When the crate is almost at the falling point some goons noticed that a crate is falling in their head. But the crate starts falling down rolled through the entrance. Some were crushed under the weight and some were stuck on the heavy load of the crate. Checking the aftermath below, you see the crate doors dented open to see a white kind of powder. The goons realized what was inside start scooping and snorting on their noses. Your peeking was interrupted by bullet fires. You immediately go to cover thinking how you will deal with these firearmed bad guys.>Enemies: 8 left (3 of them are sniffing whatever in the container)>DANGER SENSE: 3 TURNS>HASTE: 3 TURNS>EVASION: 3 TURNS>Action?>Force Punch/Kick (who?)>Buff (what?)>Call the girls>Write-in (free action)
>>3195461for the first part I once again plead boomer. I wasn't going to make the call without at least proc her passive.The sparring session with Mary took three rounds I think. I can understand your frustration with protracted combat like this. It's partially the sheer number of guys we are dealing with. I've been avoiding combat for similar/plot reasons.>>3195494In combat like this you need to keep giving us an updated map.
>>3195501I forgot to upload it sorry. It's currently past midnight and im too sleepy.

>>3195494Yuu believes Mari is somewhere on this boat, no?So she could jump right to the wheel and rev up those engines to break it from it's mooring? I'm totally gonna do that after we get rid of those three dudes on the boat.Tis a shame that we can't just punch the boat in half.> What that anon said and shoot the ar at the lights.
>>3195898Once we cleared the gunmen, there is nothing stopping Yuu from pressing her advantage in close combat. There are a pair of viable choke points. The first is the loading port (red oval) it funnels the hand to hand guys around the fallen container and we can fall back and further bottleneck the guys between the shipping containers on board (lavender routes). There is kind of an alleyway created by shipping containers to the north of the map (Blue oval.) It would forced the unarmed guys to come at us one by one and force the guys with blunt objects to come down from their perch. I have a rough plan to deal with the gunmen too. I just want to see how Corruptor moves them before I give it away.These guys display...lot of loyalty for a hired gun. Seriously if I were them I would consider cashing in my pinkie fingers to get out of this alive. We just crushed like eight of them with the container.A calculated gamble. I wasn't expecting the dc to be so high and I thought we could crush the gunmen and cut the ship off while Yuu called for backup. It did not work out that way but it didn't fail outright either. There are just some goons hired to watch/ offload brocane this seems kind of above the pay-grade.
>>3196100forgot the picture.
>>3196100>lot of loyalty for a hired gun.the power of Not!Cocaine. or they get paid a lot.
>>3196112 I just came up with another plan. Yuu's little stunt here probably cost somebody a lot of money. The Yakuza are also antsy about somebody killing off the entire trafficking operation. What if Junko forwarded the names on our magical girl hit list to the yakuza who run this operation. We might need to kidnap Yuu and get her family out of town, but the last thing Sachiko and Co. would expect is the Yakuza coming after them. Once they help us deal with the other girls we can double cross them when they expect to give up Yuu. It gives us a good use for this https://youtu.be/pgoRsVYb4J4 when the meet (as it always does) goes south.
>>3196154hmmm... moving yuu and her family out of the city seems way too hard, but we can adapt your idea. what if we tell the yakuza we can kill the girls for them? we were going to kill them either way, so doing this gives us some information on their safehouses and such, so that we are more prepared when we decide to act against them(because we obviously won't let them keep trafficking people).
>>3196112I think the unarmed ones are junkies that the yakuza have because they would never leave their cocain supply. The armed ones are there to keep them n line and prevent what’s happening from happening.>>3196154We’re teenagers. We aren’t a criminal mastermind. We are an actual manifestation of rage. I don’t think we should be capable of manipulating yakuza nor should that idea come across. It also means collateral damage everywhere and we don’t get okada’s shadow army to be weakened from having to fight magical girls. Priority a,. Revenge. Priority b, crashing the shadow plane with no survivors.
>>3196168It's just a hair brained scheme. I have not put much thought into it. The girls expect to deal with shadows, but they are probably poorly prepared for ruthless human adversaries to pursue them. Probably a good way to get one or more of them to fall into despair without resorting to massive collateral damage from constant shadow attacks.
>>3195517>>3195889>>3195898Still with you superior agility, You jump like a cat that the gunman can't aim you with how little the walkway is. Going at the stern of the ship you wait for the guy to be overhead and drop off where you shout your cheesy line again."FLYING KICK"Dropping like a speed of sound, the poor guy collapse with several broken bones and a whimpering boy in pain. There are two gunmen left when you hear them say."FUCK THIS MAN I NEVER PAID FOR THIS SHIT. I'M BAILING.""HEY HEY WAIT FOR ME."The two guys who have been stopping the 3 goons to stop sniffing saw the 2 remaining gunmen run, also escaped on their own. Seems today you somehow won the battle.>Enemy left: 3 (still sniffing the unknown drug)>DANGER SENSE: 3 TURNS>HASTE: 3 TURNS>EVASION: 3 TURNS>?????????? gained.Opening all container crates contents met with similar results. It seems that you didn't bust a human trafficking but rather a drug ring. That still leave a lot of option though. You just call the cops and....wait no signal? Sachiko will be worried about you if they don't reach you. Maybe getting out of here will be a first priority. And it seems Mari's message of going out of the town probably succeed. Or whatever she planned that is. Your only lead you can chase here now is Junko. But where she is.........................."You see that Mary.""Uhuh....she is good.""Yes in fact this is the first time Yuu killed a person. You see back then, we don't fight criminals. We just leave them to police. What we fight was shadows and shadow bosses. I wonder when will Yuu realize that she killed almost 10 people today."You deeply inhaled when a familiar scent tickled your nose."Smelled that Mary?""Smelled so sweet.""That is fury Mary. And when fury is channeled, the enemies will fear. Fear for their lives. Let's wait for a bit so we can harvest some corruption here alright?""But I thought that is my new friend. Can we meet her?"Hmmmmm>Will you meet her?>Yes>No
>>3196338>No>Yuu's appearence here is no coincidence. She is looking for you, Mary. And if she is nearby, the orther girls are nearby and that is bad news for us.
>>3196338>Nonot right now.I imagine her having gotten some trace amounts of cocaine too, not letting her sleep at allshould we call Okada to have his people rile up the news story as another massacre?

>>3196380cocaine works differently than you may think.imagine it as supercharged coffee.
>>3196389but isn't cocaine highly addictive? or am i confusing it with meth?Either way Yuu is in for a looong night.

I'll wait for my new friend."You watched Yuu jumping out of the docks and away from it. Seems she is retreating."Let's go down Mary."Looking at the aftermath it seems like some kind of battle took place. Except Yuu is the Rambo here.Now that moives kinda rub on you. Seems Yuu forcing you to watch with her also stuck with you.There are 3 guys who are very high in whatever they have snorted right now. You feel disgusted by the display yet the corruption in them flows like a roaring flame. You extend your arm and opened your palm and collected whatever corruption that was left. After siphoning all of the remaining corruption, you got a big ball of raw negativity right in your hands.>Eat it alone?>Share it with Mary (how much %?)>Use to empower your swordYou also looked at the 3 people who are ignoring you.>Mary have fun with them>Kill them yourself siphoning corruption with your sword>Leave them be

Calling Mary to come close you to take half of what you gathered and split with Mary."Here Mary, free meal. Savor it.""Thanks my queen."Both of you eat the sweet sweet corruption. The taste is to die for. After consuming all of the negativity, you felt something tied inside your head.>"Mmmmmm. Yummy. Queen is good. I love my queen."But when you looked at Mary, she is still eating. Did....you just made a mental link?>TRAIT DISCOVERED: BONDED - Mary and Junko established a mental link to each other.

This will make communication easier."Excuse me my queen."The Shadowspectre Okada gave to you appeared on the back. The car is left behind him."Okada request you to come to his mansion immediately. It seems the shadow that he was tracking has been starting to move.""Alright ready the car. Mary come, let's go home."Mary dutifully follow you leaving the junkies to their sorry state. Both of you ride to town where Okada is waiting for you at the mansion. Seems there is a situation that needs to be contained..............................>Yes Officer, i heard some crash and some gunshots i'm scared. Please come here i think i'm afraid that they will attack........>Yes please do. Thanks!Dropping the payphone, you exited on the booth hoping the police will sort this out. Yet something you realized since you are running with adrenaline with a bit of anger on someone.You killed people today.This would be the first time your hands stained with people blood. Not literally but you get the jist. Still they are bad people and you try to justify it to yourself that they deserved it. Walking through the lonely road you suddenly collapsed from exhaustion."Guys Yuu is here!""Quick! carry her."You hear a familiar girls in the distance. Seems you will be passing out and leaving it to them to carry you."Yuu! Yuu! What happened.""Girls she is unconscious. Let's carry her to her home.""Let's go."And so the 4 girls failed to find Mari and all they think that Yuu has the answers.ACT 1: Mari's Go Around>Disappearance: Success>MG Group Opinion: Worried>Junko almost succeed taking out Mari but instead of killing her, she converted her into a loyal minion. Now reborn as Mary, Mary will do anything to make her queen happy and the girl previously known as Mari is now dead. Personal, Mental, Psychologically and Spiritually. Probably worse than death itself. All Junko needs to do is tie loose ends and the girls will not pursue. Congratulations.(1/2)
>>3196503.............................Arriving at Okada's mansion you immediately go to Okada's office with Mary still dutifully follows you. Opening the door he seems to be on a never ending paperworks and signing them. Seems Okada is busy himself."Ah my queen. Sorry i get lost with these contracts. You know how running several companies around the city. Want a company my queen? No no... that would attract many unknown. I guess after all your crusade maybe you can take some of mine. Too much is burden in my shoulders you know.""I'm not interested in playing corporate nazi like you Okada. What is the situation on the shadow i let you tracked?""Seems he is moving inside the building. If left them be, they will realize there is an exit and there will be a string of unknown murders and massacres. Worse it would be a public places. Like Malls, Schools, Hospitals and Buildings. Still the shadow is still having trouble with its conciousness forming so my estimate is it would take 3 days before it will form something out of it. I suggest that you should rest my queen. You can take the shadow after you have rested. For now my shadows are scouting the building and blocking any exits that the shadow that he may discover.">Sleep>No we have to chase this shadow right now>Write-in
Gonna go out for a bit. Will come back in an hour or 3.
>>3196503>No we have to chase this shadow right now
>>3196503>TRAIT DISCOVERED: BONDED - Mary and Junko established a mental link to each other. You can now telepathically talk to each other as long as there are no nearby MG which act as an EMP....wait a minute. Now she has a direct way to communicate with us and probably won't stop talking! FUCK.
>>3196509>dealing with the shadowI’m torn. We just played out one big fight and Junko would be walking right into another. I’m going to wait to see what more people vote on. I’m leaning to rest and take the shadow first thing in the morning, but after Okada’s park attack we can’t exactly trust him to contain the new shadow and prevent civilian casualties. Do anons still think Junko cares about that?I kind of wanted to meet Yuu that night. It was the right decision to wait though. She can’t run the whole goody two shoes argument that killing is wrong with Junko now that Yuu has personally taken more lives then her (exuding our role in Mary’s debut). I still want to get to Yuu before she winds up getting corrupted. I thing she is valuable as a living MG and not another loyal pawn. I might have misunderstood Junko’s feelings towards her. I felt that Yuu might be one of her only weaknesses, since Yuu was Junko’s only real friend. Should Junko give Yuu a call to check up/start hammering out that meeting? What do anons think? It seems we managed to hit Sachiko hard. What might happen if she loses Rei too?
>>3196588>We just played out one big fight and Junko would be walking right into another. But we did nothing.
>>3196594The we in that sentence was referring to the player base. I realize that I use we to refer to Junko quite often and someone would make that mistake.
>>3196601my point is still the same; we as Junko did nothing. Mary is the one that is "weakest" right now because she puked her insides, but other than that we are more than fine thanks to the fresh corruption we absorbed.
>>3196509>write in: ask Mary how she’s feeling before committing to a decision. “Mary I know you are always up for a fight but remember what we talked about tonight—about teamwork and speaking up if your not able to fulfill a plan one hundred percent. How are you feeling? There is no reason to rush if you aren’t ready. I wouldn’t feel disappointed if you need to rest.”
>>3196394The most addictive drug in general would be tobacco. Tobacco is addictive after one dose which I vaguely recall is an absurd addiction time that makes it the Chlorine Triflouride of addiction. Everything else tends to take a while for the body to actually get a drug dependence.Yuu also won't actually know what the stuff is that she has a craving for.Treatment for addiction generally consists of finding something not as bad to get the person hooked on instead. Ergo she's going to be snatching muffins.
>>3196693wasn't that heroin? well, whatever, its a rather interesting explanation either way.
>>3196707I guess the way to explain it is tobacco theoretically gives you cravings after the first dose.Cocaine doesn't, but you keep on taking it because it feels awesome. By the time you actually notice the physical addiction (usually by actually running out of cocaine)I'll try and give an awful example/metaphor/simile.Take your brain . It fills itself with your various hormones and makes sure everything is running.Drugs make you feel high (duh)Your brain generally tries to keep everything balanced while the drugs throw things off balance.Drug addiction is when your brain has noticed that the drugs have some of it's job covered and decides to not make them on it's own since why work when you can get it from an outside source? Withdrawl is because your brain doesn't give two shits about doing it's old job anymore and things go about as well as you'd expect from your body not producing things that it's supposed to be making/regulating.Now there are also psychological addictions which is probably what anons were talking about in retrospect. eg gambling addictions. But liking something too much because you enjoy it is pretty low tier for addictions.
Ok I'm back. Gonna count some votes now. Also writing. Here is some extra.>"Damn what happened.">"We just heard some gunshots but not like this.">"Say....wanna bail?">"I agree. I'm so gonna hook with Ayaka-san now to forget all of this.">".......do you have another girl you know?">"...... yeah but first let's get out of here."
>>3196833Hey horn-dog thug and his buddy survived. Good for them.
Rolled 2 (1d3)>>3196524>>3196561>>3196635Well since the vote is spread ill just go roll which one.1 = Deal with shadow2 = Sleep3 = Ask Mari
>>3196847>>3196833I love happy endings.
>>3196849Your body felt fine yet with how the happenings around from Kidnapping Mari to converting, then train which drained you a bit of energy to executing Mari disappearance. It's been a long day for you. Last thing you need is to trip something and a shadow will stab you in a gut."Mary are you tired.""I think i'm still sick."You forgot Mary has motion sickness. Sighing you let her rest on her room which Mary runs probably to the nearest bathroom."Cute girl. Take care of her my queen. It's not as a shadow of me speaking but rather as Yoshinobu Okada. Seems she loves that girl but the girl is scared with money. Instead it drove away her friends because she was so high class that a normal people wouldn't want to mess or make friends with her without looking like they were gold diggers.""I didn't know a shadow can show empathy.""You showed mercy my queen. Despite we are evil, we also feel human emotions as we consume and shape to be like them. If we're just a shadow our thinking would be a thirst of power, and desire to corrupt around us.""Philosophical are we?""Say after this what will you do?""What about you Okada?""Well since i won't be dead i will be forever a corporate mogul until civilization collapse itself. Gonna spin a lot of tales to do that though. Maybe i will aim to get all the industries and companies. But that is just my sinful part of me talking. What about you my queen?""I'll go take a nap. Keep me posted on that shadow."".....I understand."Going to the room you throw yourself on the bed. Thinking about what happened right now, you already crossed one person from your group. You wonder how you will confront the others. You close your eyes and let the sleepiness consume you."3 more to go."......................You awoke suddenly when you felt nothing below you. No in fact you are floating to a dark abyss. At first when you were stuck here you can see your whole body but right now you can't even see your hands. Although you can faintly see your body but that is already pushing it already.>"Hello me."Your turned around to see where the voice came from. You looked around yet the surrounding area is so dark you can't make anything out of it.>"Not to worry. It's fine if you can't see me. You see you are already on a path of being a complete shadow. Keep it up and i'll reward you something. Don't worry you can keep everything you have right now. Your memories, your life...well although you probably outlive anyone but isn't that great? Humans sought immortality and you will be forever a teenager. How glorious.>Who are you?>Show yourself!>I don't want any of this!>Write-in
>>3196887>Write-in>Isn't it? Too bad, the answer to whatever you want to offer me is no. I'll kill the girls then crash everything down with no survivors if you even dare to attempt something.>Unless you want to make a deal with me. I tried to contact you once before, now show yourself if you really want to talk.
>>3196887"So you're my dark side? Or the shadow half of me? That's fine, I guess. We both want to get revenge, so can we skip the ominous offers of gifts and speak earnestly with each other? I'd rather count you as a friend than some mysterious force within me I need to be wary of."
>>3196887>Write in seconding:>>3196903 plusWhat’s the path of being a complete shadow? >>3196902I think antagonizing the evil voice in our head is a bad idea.
>>3196911consuming corruption when we knew what it did was a terrible idea from the start, and yet here we are.
>>3196923Trust me I’m with you on the “crash the entire System it’s probably all bullshit, anyway” path. Call out the monster in Junko’s Head is probably a good way to get her bitch-slapped at the worst possible time.
>>3196911>>3196929But right now is the best time to get into a conflict with the shadow. We still have our hope powers and we are not so gone that it will try some bullshit like controlling our body, because if the shadow was powerful enough to overtake us it would have done such by now. Do you really think it won't betray us the moment it can?The motherfucker is on OUR playing field, we won't be threatened by it and if it wants to make a move it will be by OUR rules. Otherwise it can fuck off and find another victim.
>>3196933It’s the same thing that showed up when Junko first used rage against the shadowlings in the first thread and it did control our body. Junko was out of the slums in the park and had trashed the place. I would hazard a guess that it killed the kid Junko was trying to save too. We should practice with our hope powers first before trying something that risky.
>>3196954On my defense, that only happened because we didn't know how to control ourselves. Now we can control that rage(at least that's what i understand from the pastebin).>We should practice with our hope powers first before trying something that riskyideally yes, but who knows if on our next encounter for some reason is stronger. Right now it wants to bargain, to lure us to do its bidding because a fight is not worth to it. we can't accept any kind of deal it makes us because it will set us on an uphill fight against something we won't be capable of winning against(because our 'allies" will be shadows and Yuu which her fate is still undecided, but edges on staying a "pure"MG)
>>3196902>>3196903"So you're my dark side? Or the shadow half of me? That's fine, I guess. We both want to get revenge, so can we skip the ominous offers of gifts and speak earnestly with each other? I'd rather count you as a friend than some mysterious force within me I need to be wary of.""Interesting.....don't worry. In fact you already gave me what i want. I'm just here sitting and waiting for you what are your next moves. I do enjoy converting pure little girls into evil little minions of yours.""Isn't it? Too bad, the answer to whatever you want to offer me is no. I'll kill the girls then crash everything down with no survivors if you even dare to attempt something. Unless you want to make a deal with me. I tried to contact you once before, now show yourself if you really want to talk.""Deal? No no no.....you already gave me a part of what i need. You get corruption and i'll be satisfied. In fact you got a plenty already. Notice how your vision so black? Just a little more and you will get what you want. Remember the essence from the boss shadow? It empowers you but also corrupting your soul more and more. Later more mutation will come. I'm not even surprised that there aren't mutations on your physically or mentally. Or you are a talented prodigy you are to consume the corruption to empower you magically. Oh wait! you are a previous MG right? Oh silly me. No wonder. You guys destroy corruption but since you dipped too deep with negativity your corruption empowered your magical skills and breaking anything that would harm you physically and mentally. Ah i can see it. A group of corrupted agent of darkness. Will you include Yuu into your personal army of revenge? Fufufufufu~ i will be waiting for your next move.....Junko."WAIT YOU FUCKING BITCH GET BACK HERE!"...........You opened you eyes immediately and sit. Your head is pounding but it recedes seconds later. Seems you found your other half on your dreams.....or conciousness or whatever. Still you rise up a looked at the window."Still early morning huh.">"Mmmmmm Queen give me more headpats......yes.....more.......hmmmm"You really need some kind of thought filter....or maybe train Mary to control her thoughts. Nothing to do you go to the bathroom to ready yourself for a new day...............Refreshed and ready to take on your crusade for revenge, you go to Okada's office. Currently he is just sitting snoring loudly. Surprising that even Okada sleeps too."Hey wake up!"Okada jolts awake immediately and saw you standing."Sorry my queen. It seems writing contracts took a lot out of me. So you are here for the shadow right?""Yes, what is the status."".....Still at the building but currently it's not moving.""Not moving? meaning?""Maybe it sleeps. I dunno i can't really tell.""I'll check it out. Go tie some loose ends with Mari disappearance. Tell her parents about it too.""Alright my queen. I'll do my best."(1/2)
>>3197009Going to Mary's room. You opened the door and see she is still sleeping dreamily with you doing the heatpats and all of that.Simple girl."Mary wake up. We going to hunt something."Mary slowly opened and rub some dust on her eyes. Yawned like a bear again who woke up from hibernation (wait you already thought of this twice.) You greeted Mary with a smile."Good morning Mary. Having a good sleep?""Yes my queen! you gave me a lot of heatpats too.""Yes i'm sure i did. Now get ready and we will be out in 30.""Yes my queen!"And so Mary stands up and waited....for you."Mary i meant you need to take a bath to clean yourself.""Potty?""..................."What happened next was you never expected from a 17 years old girl................Feeling exhausted on what was happened on Mary's bathroom you immediately set out where the massacre happened. When you arrive at the site. There aren't people around. The whole building was taped with police line and the entrance was blocked. You see some ways on how to enter the building.>Jump from one of the open balcony>Rooftop>Who cares about the entrance, Kick it.>Send Mary to scout.>Write-in
>>3197009Well, shit. At least we remember what happened and I guess its time to contact Yuu because new we are really over our heads.Also, for the love of all that is evil, we have to stop consuming corruption.>>3197037FOR FUCKS SAKE MARY!>Send Mary to scout.>If you have any problem or doubt, talk to me.
>>3197009>your corruption empowered your magical skills and breaking anything that would harm you physically and mentally.At least this gives me some peace of mind regarding body snatching and stuff like that.
>>3197037>>RooftopI don’t want to split our forces. >17 year oldI knew Mari was older but I thought the group was the typical late middle/early high school age-range for magical girls?
>>3197119Mari is currently on senior high. If kids when graduated at elementary aged 10-11 then middle school is 13-14 and high school is 16-17.
Lack of votes huh....well i'll just throw this as extra>*at Rei's house*>"Junkooooooooo im hungry.">"Stop pouting Yuu, Rei is making muffins for us.">"Then tell her to hurry up i....Her stomach grumbles from hunger>"Uwaaaaaaah hurry up Junkooo or i'll eat this table.">"Okay okay! I'm going."Going to Rei's kitchen you see her getting the muffin out of the oven. Rei noticed Junko approaching but now with menacing face.>"If you gonna ask that you wanna share my muffin. I'm sorry. This is solely for me.">"What? at least share at least one.">"When was the last time Yuu content with one muffin.">*Flashback*.....>NO YUU STOP EATING THOSE OR REI WILL KILL US.>Never. My hunger knows no bounds so i will eat everything i see....and taste yummy. AND REI MUFFINS IS THE BEST AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.>YUUU PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAAAAAAK>NEVERRRRRRR>"Yeah i think she would ask for more.">"Now that you realize it. Now scoot. i have to cool these down."Putting the muffins on the windows you pretend to go out of the kitchen. Then sneak inside. When you are in front of the muffin. Rei is towering in-front of you.>"No."Defeated you go for different approach. Like inside a cardboard box>"No."Or going on the backroom>"No."Or pretending to go to bathroom.*click*>"NO DONT LOCK ME HERE IM REALLY USING THE BATHROOM."Or sneaking at the window. But she suddenly shut off the window making your poor fingers throb in pain.>"Definitely no."Defeated you return to Yuu empty handed. Yuu eyes lost light when she saw you nothing on hand.>"Yuu....i have nothing.">"Boooooo Junko you are better than this. If you don't bring me a muffin then we aren't friends anymore.">"Wha- you can't do that!">"Who are you. I don't even know you. Hmmph."Yuu turned on the other side refusing to look at you. Giving up on her childish act you decide to go upstairs to check on Mari. Maybe she can console you with all these rude people around here. Looking at the kitchen you see Sachiko and Rei speaking something.>"No.">"Hey i'm not Yuu!">"My answer is still no."Who killed her dog and made her a boss? Maybe Yuu. She is the one to blame. Going upstairs and opening the door you see Mari huddled up in a corner looking for something secretive. Slamming the door gently, Mari was startled and immediately slammed the book shut whatever she is reading.>"H-hey Junko. What are you doing here.">"Nothing. Yuu being Yuu and Rei is a mean person.">"I-I see...uhh can you give me a moment of privacy here?">"Why does people push me away for some reason. Ugh!"You slammed the door shut stomping out and decide to go home. But not when Rei confronts you.(1/2)
>"Hey what happened?">"Apparently people like to PUSH me out and i'm leaving. I'm going home.">"Wait what happened?">"Apparently Mari wants her "privacy". She is reading something secretive. Apparently her face was flushed red. Maybe something about your books."Rei realized what Junko said and her face goes crimson. Immediately Rei rushed to her room and called out Mari.>"MARI DON'T TOUCH THOSE BOOKS!">"EEEEEEEEEEEK!"Looking at the muffins you see that they are wide open.>"Now is my chance."Immediately you go grab the nearest paper bag and start putting all the muffins to feed the Yuu. You grab one muffin and called Sachiko.>"Open wide Sachiko"Sachiko was very confused when she was called out but good thing her mout was wide open. You don't care if she yawn or hear your request but you immediately shoved a muffin on her mouth and realized what she was eating. Immediately she ate the muffin and said her thanks. You run to Yuu and dangle the paper bag which Yuu eyes lights up.>"JUNKO MY FRIEND! YOU BRING ME MY SACRIFICIAL BLESSING!">"We need to get out of here first or Rei will rain us with elemental fury.">"Un! Let's go."And so you immediately wear your shoes and escaped Rei's house with a muffin in hand and a laughing Yuu on the other. The aftermath was a week of Yuu apologizing to Rei, a lot of peace offerings from Yuu (muffins), Sachiko (eating a muffin, accomplice), Mari (you don't know why) and You(the culprit). And a declaration that on that day forward, Yuu and Junko are banned from entering Rei's house. Nevertheless it was a fun experience for both of you. And probably an agonizing experience from Rei. At that point onwards any suggestion to hang out on Rei's house was met with a piercing gaze which Yuu always pushed too far. And get iced on a nearest wall.(2/2)
>>3197773>Lack of votes huh....well i'll just throw this as extraI forgot to actually vote since I had to sleep.>Talk over the general combat plan with Mary Nothing fancy. Just how we're getting in. How we're getting out.>Look for an open window. Use the shields to just walk into the building via that. Anyone that sees will think we're tightrope walking or that it can't be helped.
>>3197037>Talk over the general combat plan with Mary Nothing fancy. Just how we're getting in. How we're getting out.>Look for an open window. Use the shields to just walk into the building via that. Anyone that sees will think we're tightrope walking or that it can't be helped.
>>3197883>>3197890"Okay Mary. Listen to me carefully. Whatever i say, you should do it. Don't do whatever i didn't tell you to. We don't know how this shadow will fight but for now let's stay cautious alright?""Okay!""Good now follow me."Summoning a shield enough for one person. You summon five at a time and traverese slowly in the middle of the street. Good thing no people are around. After minutes of slowly walking through the building, you manage to arrive without difficulty. The door window was already broken and shard of glasses are crunching on your foot. Closing you eyes, you try to ping the corruption.................It's too hazy."Mary, let's go to the hallway. and watch my back."As you waddle from hastily thrown furniture to some remnants of a dried blood you exit the room, you encountered something with a rotten smell. Covering you nose, this is so different from a corruption you almost take."Mary are you alright?""Hm? well what about?""That rotten smell? You seem to be fine.""Oh that?"She inhales a lot of it. And gives you her signature manic smile. In her own low voice she tries to be a menacing woman."I liked it very much. Sweet sweet death that is."Seem you have different taste. Maybe Mary has a wanderlust of killing people. Which you will try to curb a little............After looking around from room to room you have arrived where the stench is too heavy, you incline to puke a lot but not for now. If you surmise, this shadow is the shadow of death. The death was too many which most of here are bad guys that all unfulfilled vices they do, or their greedy human nature. Took into physical form, merge into a being and a shadow took advantage of it. Slowly inching closer, you open your link mentally to talk with Mary.>"Mary, get ready for anything. The shadow may attack once we enter his room. Don't let her escape on the room or we will go find him again alright?">"Yes! I'll do my best."You see a crawling miasma leaking through the door. This is where the shadow is now hiding. Closely opening it you see a human. In his 30's you guess and would scare a normal citizen with his intimidating face. Well currently he is sleeping so the advantage of attack is yours. If you can utilize it perfectly that is.>Sneak and get closer>Attack immediately>Write-in
So whats the general idea? Kill him?If so:>sneak and use the black hole on him.
>>3198263We kind of just got a big warning about how absorbing too much shadows might end up making us like Okada except OG Okada at least was allowed to die. I'm personally going with training up our MG abilities too.>>3198255>Let Mary know that we're going to purify the shadow instead of absorbing it this time, but be ready to kill it if anything bad happens. Mary can probably siphon off the miasma to help with her stamina issues too?>Power up our blade with friendship (Yuu), set a shield and sneak closer to it for a strike but be careful incase it's faking or wakes up. >Attack.
>>3198309But blackhole doesn't makes us absorb stuff. It just sends it....somewhere, otherwise we are full of all the stuff we absorbed from mari's room.As for the shadow warning, i tought it said it cant overtake us? Because it was intrigued that we were showing no mutations whatsoever(also our character page says we are outright immune to status effects, and getting body snatched definitely counts as a status effect)
>>3198326Which is exactly why it's currently the perfect target to brush up on MG abilities. It's know to be weaker than us so it's perfect for a basic training exercise or even to experiment with weird combinations without much danger. (That's assuming that summoning our own shadowlings to repeatedly purify for practice would weaken us overall like some sort of negative xp gain.)Voices in our head is always something to be concerned about. It thinks us being more powerful (corruption wise) is good for it and for all we know this is some Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde situation where when we go to sleep it can take over our body and actually be the dark queen. Plus if it said that the thing that stops it from taking over I our MG powers then the moment we lose hope for whatever reason it might be able to just take over.I would also not completely trust anything it says it can't do. People lie to themselves all the time.
>>3198350Fair points, i suppose. >>3198255Changing from >>3198263 to >>3198309.
>>3198326I'm glad this anon got it. The shadow was confused why you didn't show mutations like picture related when you talk to your inner shadow. Basically Junko trades power for corruption. Will you gonna eat this boss corruption and empower yourself more to aid you in your quest for revenge? Or will you stagnate yourself from the very one you have been living for and your single life line? I have some skills that you will like when you defeat this shadow and consume its essence you know.
>>3198370>the more corruption we get, the more powerful we become.That's good to know; im still concerned about lack of side effects, but since everything we currently know leads towards no side effects, well, its a relief of sorts.
>>3198255>Let Mary know that we're going to purify the shadow instead of absorbing it this time, but be ready to kill it if anything bad happens. Mary can probably siphon off the miasma to help with her stamina issues too?>Power up our blade with friendship (Yuu), set a shield and sneak closer to it for a strike but be careful incase it's faking or wakes up. >Attack.Pestilence, Death, Junko is wrath. When are we meeting famine.
>>3198384Scratch that I mean war.
>>3198309>>3198384>"Senpai. Will Yuu be ok?">"I don't know Kanna. But i hope she is doing alright.">"Still how the hell Yuu end up there.">"Maybe she caught Mari and gave chase. And attacked her?">"No that is impossible. Mari-sempai wouldn't do that! Right?">"Girls please calm down. I know Mari is probably dealing her own problems right now but we need to respect her privacy. Although i might say her text is kind of rude but why would she send a text from an unknown number. Would it be not suspicious if she sent it on her own phone?">"Yeah i agree Rei. This is very suspicious. If i have a theory, Mari was forced to text something like that and why she didn't text to her parents, or her relatives and why us? Because she trust us that she would rescue us.">"Un! What Sachiko-sempai said!">"Girls i know Yuu is still recovering but let's search for clues. Let's return to where Yuu collapsed and investigate there.>"Alright Sachiko.">"Yes Sempai!"writing
>>3198406Huh. A+ on the mental gymnastics they made
>>3198392Isnt mary war? She is a bloodthirst animal when let loose.
>>3198420Mari's insecurity is mostly her own thing. In essence, you oversold it.
>>3198451That might make sense. I assumed that the process of becoming a shadow had something to do with the strongest negative emotion the person felt before death but these shadows are special for some reason. war could be okada. War profiteering and all thatConsidering the absurdity on display from the girls here, Yuu’s well reasoned battle plan last night. Junko probably could take out the girls with completely mundane means and avoid the corruption train. antagonizing our shadow self actually confirmed something. She is not Junko. Otherwise she would have already known Junko was a fallen magical girl. Junko may be “the dark queen” but she is just a piece on someone else’s game board. Both magical girls and shadows are being manipulated by something.
>>3198470I think is more based on their wants. Okada is greed, we are vengeance, Mary is...envy? jealousy? i'm still not sure where on the spetrum she falls.
>>3198477I would have assumed the head of a group of human traffickers would have also been freed or lust but instead he’s death. There is something that we are missing. We should also ask Mary if she has a “shadow self” in her head as well. Even if such a concept will probably go right over Mary’s head.
>>3198486Maybe the brutality of Mary's attacks left everyone with a deep fear of dying and that created the thing we are seeing right now?>We should also ask Mary if she has a “shadow self” in her head as well.that's a good idea even tough i think she and her shadow might be one, considering the original mari is for all intents and purposes dead and replaced by this more innocent but brutal person. We should also ask her if she heard any of the things we said on our encounter with our shadow.
>>3198309>>3198369>>3198384>"Ooooh i wonder how should i stab that person right now.">"Mary focus! We are not going to kill that shadow. Instead we purify it.">"Puwi-what?">"Purify! It means we are going to banish the shadow. Or exorcise in religious term.">"But Mari doesn't know about purify.">"Hmmm yeah i forgot. Yuu is the one who would purify these kinds of shadows."Still you have the shadow in front of you. And your means of purifying is stabbing the monster until it wont stand up. You still have your hope blade to coat your sword but still you coat your sword with whatever hope left in your body. You can't see the light blinding light you previously had but rather a faint white shadow that barely dominates the black sword you are holding.The shadow is still sleeping.>Let's retreat for now and get Yuu...maybe she can reason with us and help us banish this shadow.>No fuck it. Go inside and kill it.>Conversation? If Okada says it formed consciousness then probably you can reason with the shadow?>Write-in
>>3198548>No fuck it. Go inside and kill it.we came for a fight and have our hope blade.
>>3198548>No fuck it. Go inside and kill it.
>>3198548>Let's retreat for now and get Yuu...maybe she can reason with us and help us banish this shadow.This is a nice way to contact her.
>>3198563>>3198565Sneaking inside, you and Mary are stealthily move through this dilapidated office where the person in question is sleeping on a desk. When you are in a considerable distance where you can stab the person and Mary draws her arrows very quietly. Both of you attacked simultaneously.>Roll1d100 for surprise attack

>>3198620I almost forgot we use a roll under system.
>>3198620I was surprised that it was even a yakuza. I figured one of the victims had ptsd since that is some rank incompetence on the police's part to not sweep the building. Or do the police know more than they let on and leave spooky supernatural shit alone?
>>3198620For cases like this one, You can always post the text you already wrote as long as we kill the enemy at the end. That way you don't need to change course that much.
>>3198632Well i guess i'll post the shadow last stand
>>3198620>Press F to pay respects to the shadow.>>3198632could always post it in a pastebin as a bonus.
>>3198632What he said. This was a bit of a training exercise so we end up crippling it so hard that we just dominate it while testing stuff out. I was hoping to practice some hope/friendship infused shields.
>>3198631Or some police are scared shitless that maybe one of those bastards still hiding. And some exaggerated stories considering what happened inside the building. If anything, blame Mary. She had too much fun.
>>3198646Mary would count under spooky supernatural shit. I'm sure somebody shotgunned her and she kept on going at some point.And to clarify (although I'm sure people generally got what I meant) I meant as in victims of the Yakuza.I guess we're gonna have to sweep the building for any victims that were tied up and left along since the police didn't sweep things.
Both of you simultaneously stabbed and released an arrow so much that the shadow that was sleeping croaked immediately in pain. With your combined effort of not wanting to recover. Mary kept peppering her arrows throwing it with her hands wildly like a javelin while you stabbed and slashed the shadow until you see the person is an unmistakable pool of black mess, gore and a sizzling hiss of hope burning the shadow to extinction. The yakuza which for some reason is still alive has still the strength to look at you two."Ugh....why.....was it bad for existing such as i.""With a shadow of death? No. Not a chance.""Heh...maybe nobody really want's me huh.""Cut your sentimental bullshit. You are going to die and that is final.""Not until i do THIS!"The shadow begin to expand and and grow in size. You and Mary jumped outside the room and looking for the nearest window for you to get out to. Upon exiting the building you can still see the shadow still ever expanding until it released a dust like particle. And it go towards your position."Shit! Mary run! Don't let that smoke get you!"Jumping around from building to building and away, the dust is still chasing both of you. You don't know what or where even how to contain this thing but first thing first. How to lose it?>The slums>The city>Residential area(Write-in is not available here)
>>3198692>The slumsHate to throw them under the bus, but probably the fewest people there.
>>3198692Well there goes any hope of checking for survivors.I'm assuming that this is the daytime, so houses might actually have the lowest population density atm?Find a (hopefully empty) building or large room to trap it in and slam things shut with a shield. Preferably MG powered/enhanced shields to try and resist whatever effect that smoke hasHow big is this dust? Is is still extending from the building or did it actually cap out in size and chase us like an evil cloud from Fern Gully?
>>3198714And if that doesn't work we black hole the fuck out of it.
>>3198714It's like you are being chased by a plague of locust or something like a cloud.
>>3198726we already won. this is just fluff
>>3198729Sounds like a black hole situation. Not sure how long we can maintain it but that clouds/dust aren't well known for being able to resist vacuums.
>>3198734Yeah. I'm just saying. Why sacrifice anyone when we have something that would dispose of it without possibly sacrificing innocents?
>>3198741Corruptor barred write ins for this one. Plus the black hole takes some setup time in combat
>>3198696>>3198698>>3198705Not wanting to get more attention about girls jumping from skyscraper to skyscraper in the middle of the day, you decide to turn around and go to the slums where you first visited. Jumping and ducking through the alleyway you see a lone homeless man sitting on himself huddled from the harshness of cold mornings. But you ignored him and go past him. Suddenly a scream was heard. You turn around to see some portion of the dust seems to attack the homeless person. Not wanting to observe what was happening to him, you resume your sprint to the slums............"Mama! What is our breakfast for today?""We have noodles and eggs for today. Call your sister and brother so we can eat alright?""Yes Mama."Running outside to call your brother and sister, you see 2 girls running towards you. They jump so high it was very cool. But looking behind me was......"MAMA!!!".............Oh god this is worse than you thought. You don't even know what is happening right now but you can't afford to stop."My queen my queen. The dust cloud is getting smaller and smaller."Looking back you see that it is getting smaller. As another passerby unknowingly walks through the dust or smoke cloud the person waves his hand around and then collapse a portion of its dust. It remained on the body and even looking further seems to have similar result. Yet the dust is still half from its original size."My queen. Should we look for more people?">No let's go to the forest. Maybe it attracts animals too>Maybe the prison is a good idea. They won't be missed.> Lets round on the slums might as well contain it here.>Find an open space and ready your black holegonna eat some dinner brb

>>3198785Never underestimate the ingenuity of idiots. I also had figured you were gonna left people mistake the black hole for some freaky terrorist attack since they can't actually see what's causing everything to start flying into it.
>>3198779>>Find an open space and ready your black hole
>>3198779What's closer, the forest or an open space? Either way we're black holing it on the spot and having Mary call Okada to get us a ride back to the mansion..
>>3198787>>3198795*at Yuu's house."Waking up feeling weak. You suddenly remember what happened yesterday. Then the sudden realization of what you did. You jolt up awake to see you are on your room. The group probably found you and carried you here. Hopefully on the window and not on the front door. A knock was heard behind your door."Yuu did you still have fever?""I don't know mom but i feel sick.""Then rest for now. I already called the school. I'm going to the Doctor to get you a medical certification alright?""Thanks mom."Then suddenly a surge of corruption was felt. It was so powerful that you covered yourself in blanket and hug yourself in fetal position on how chilling the shadow was. Like the one that you fought before Junko....."Damn it what is happening on this town."Yuu pick up the phone and then see Junko's phone sat beside yours."One day Junko.....one day."Yuu then reported her finding about a massive spike of corruption. The girls decide to find a way to excuse themselves and go to Yuu's home for the confirmation.writing

Yet you also remember that you need some time to prepare for it. Arriving at the intended destination, you mentally command Mary to find a way to distract the dust while you position yourself to ready your containment field AKA your black hole. Mary turned around and flail arrows on it. It didn't do anything but when Mary bolted in different direction, the dust clearly followed her. Now it's your turn.>Palm size: You aren't sure if it will suck the dust cloud of death but you can try. (80%)>Fist size: You already know it can suck enough but you don't know if it will suck long enough.

(200%)>Roll1d100>DC: Lowest roll will be subtracted to 100 to be added for the total charge base. Nat 100 gives you 1% charge and Nat 1 gives you instant 100+20% charge. EX: if rolled 3 you get 97% charge.I know some anon hated the turn based so i'm switching to roll base. But instead if you fail a DC it will add into a percentage based on how you roll. When succeed charging up, you will roll again if you going to succeed or fail to contain. There will be options presented with different modifiers. I will accept write-in and i'll provide a modifier depending on the write-in hopefully this will make anon satisfied no matter how your luck and RNGods leads you to.

>>3199116We've not had a second critical failure to find out even if we are getting dangerously close. It might be easier to get into that state the more corruption we absorb.

To be honest, it made you smile and want to try hard for her.

Rolled 27 (1d100)>>3199135Support>>3199137>>31991464chan’s dice system is notoriously wonky. It’s hard to come up with dice systems for it.
>>3199146...I might regret it later, but if you want to spice it up, you can also make the doubles(11, 22, 33....) crit or critfail(if there is no number below the threshold) depending on where they fall.
>>3199163 isn’t it the random aspect of random number generator behind 4chan’s dice fucked? I thought it was easier to roll doubles or numbers very close together on dice her than on a real die.
>>3199172kind of. The dice rolling system is based on the server's clock, so its never truly random; that's why you make the doubles criticals. Its still biased a little bit for the players because the doubles that don't meet the threshold don't override the normal numbers that do, but if no number passes, there is a higher chance of critfailing.

>>3198548Looks like we passed over some important information>You can't see the light blinding light you previously had but rather a faint white shadow that barely dominates the black sword you are holding.I think we might need to change our "light" fuel for a more renewable one. Happinessor maybe even TEAMWORK should do the trick and with mary on our side, something simple like playing videogames or going to the theme park should refill our tanks.
>>3199500I noticed it, but we need more info to figure out what it is. Is it just the darkness covering it up? Is it our own mental state not being strong enough? Is the amount of shadows purified fuel for MG power and making us run low?That's three different entirely viable reasons that I had immediately thought of and there would be more or others that the QM thought up and decided to use.
>>3199781I say that we are low on recent positive emotions. After all, we were in a very emotional state because our mother was being drained away bit by bit. Since we don't have that kind of encouragement right now, it makes sense that our blade isn't as bright
>>3199265>>3199188"Mary come toward me, I'll suck the dust cloud in front of me.""Are you going to be ok? I don't want you to leave me alone here.""Don't worry i'll manage."Mary rushes past you and the cloud is getting closer and closer. The ball is in full charge and you raised it where the cloud is moving head-on. You steel yourself, whatever happens you....No you will survive. And you will not fall. Extending your hand again the dust cloud and your black hole collide. But instead it started to suck off little but little. It seems that the cloud realized what is happening and is trying to pull out. While it extends some of it body to branch out and reach to your position, it seems your black hole is holding on it's own preventing the dust cloud to do anything and suck as best as it can. Still you don't know if you can hold it. The hole suck too slow to your liking that you will end up your energy to be depleted first.

>>3200396>>3200489>>3200897sorry for disappearing. Got dragged out by my friends to play a game where i always get trashed with a side of beer and trashtalking.Not confident to finish all of these dust cloud to suck itself, you are considering making another hole with your hand and enforce your hole to suck much more better but the bad side is, your energy will tank so hard you will be collapse and god know you will be either consumed by that or both of you will. Throwing the black hole to suck some of it even if it's a little bit, you stumble from the energy you expended. It's very dangerous to keep holding one not without sacrificing your whole strength to do it. Considering you are not a mage type like Rei, if both of you fight. You will probably lose head on. Running away again, Mary follows you and go into the forest where the cloud still chasing you. Going past a colony of bees the cloud....ignores one. Then you see a deer. The deer sensed you and run away from your direction but you chased it. Confident with your speed you go past the buck and the dust cloud still ignored the animal."Drat. It seems it only affects humans.""My queen.""Yes?""I think....i feel sleepy."Cursing to yourself, you forgot Mary lack of endurance. She is still running but she is slowing down. Yet the cloud is slowly gaining towards you.This is a stressful event if not one of the most dangerous one you have encountered so far.>Go back to the city. Even if it hurts you sacrifice some humans and let the cloud satisfy itself from the deaths of the human.>Split with Mary. Take the dust cloud with you so Mary can go back to Mansion.>Go find an open space again and make another black hole (palm? fist? 46/??? Warning:Mary is exhausted)>Write-in
>>3200961>>Go find an open space again and make another black hole (palm? fist? 46/???For a fight we already won this is getting out of hand.
>>3200968I know right? But sometimes enemies have their fair share of trump card in their hands and this is the first enemy have one. Gives some spice when not beating opponents in their sleep.
>>3200984Does the desire to protect others in general count for MG powers?Since it's draining most of our corruption powers to use that black hole we might have to dig deep and use our desire to not see anyone else die as collateral damage to purify the fuck out of it?
>>3200961>Go find an open space again and make another black hole(Fist)Time to finish this while mary can still hold on.
>>3200984We did elect to go in on hard mode rather than just absorbing the shadow or attempting diplomacy. If we split off Mary could we make it back to the prison? Is the 46 dc we need to roll under to add to the pool? Sorry kind of mostly slept through the past two sessions.
>>3200996I was thinking on that; maybe we could "reverse" the black hole and instead of absorbing everything it could spew raw positive emotions everywhere. A deadly last resort weapon of sorts because in order to use it effectively we would have in "storage" a lot of positive emotions that the white hole could feed upon.>>3201009I think the 46 is the amount of charge we currently have and the ??? depends on the size of the black hole we want to make.
>>3200968Oh and whoops>>3200961>make a black hole (fist sized)Forgot to write that in.
>>3200968>>3201000>>3201015"Sorry Yuu. We took a lot of time than we used to. Teachers are wary of us since we excuse a lot for superficial reason yet here we are. What can you tell about a sudden spike of corruption.""Sachiko. When i was just waking up i felt something very powerful. It.....was scary. But as the time went on it became fainter and fainter. And the corruption has spread. I think we need to go out now.""Transform girls. And follow Yuu. Yuu lead the way.""Alright it's this way.""Wait!""What is it?""Are you sure are you still fine? You collapsed yesterday.""I'm fine but more importantly, we have a citizen to save.""Alright. Just....don't push yourself.""I will. Thanks."Writing
>>3201014I was wondering if we could eventually turn our black hole into a quasar or at least absorb attacks and dump them back out on enemies. We need a source of positive emotions first. Hopefully the meeting with Yuu goes well. I wonder if Mary can act as a source if we get enough social links with her
>>3201022This is a waste of time. You can't run forever. You decide to have your last stand where you suck the dust cloud earlier. Getting out from the forest you stand up in the middle of the yard where there are devoid of people. Charging up you mentally cheer Mary to keep up as you will deal the final blow after you finishing charging. Starting you are going to finish this right here right now.>roll1d100 and goodluck

>>3201024...Yeah? Since positive emotions are generated by interacting with people(a shocker, i know) and mary is people(another socking truth), we just need to do some fulfilling activities with her, like watching movies, playing videogames,or doing stuff like that and we should be set.The brainwashing things that the MGs do also give me an idea. what if we create our own positive emotions? we implant in ourselves some happy memories, we experience said memories, harvest the fresh emotions, erase the memories and repeat the process again.Now, if you actually want to strip Mary's positive emotions from her...maybe we can? we can absorb corruption which is negative emotions taken form, it shouldn't be impossible to do the same to the positive ones.
>>3201048Nah Mary’s fine I don’t think we should eat her positive emotions or anything. I’m just surprised our interactions with her haven’t contributed that much. I don’t know if Junko would have to resort to brainwashing. What if she just meditates on a positive memory. There is a lot of stuff for us to try out still.
>>3201055well, we haven't done anything that could be considered "important". For her maybe; she seems to love the headpats and apparently leave a mark big enough in her mind for her to be dreaming about them also, her puking rainbows makes me think that she can still use light based abilities. We definitely have to investigate the matter more. Maybe on the downtime we're gonna have, because this fight is gonna leave us wasted and the waves of corruption that this shadow is leaving will keep the MGs alert for some time.
>>3201031>>3201033>>3201034>123/130Your energy is dwindling and your are now skeptical if you can still hold out. Your ball starts swirling on itself while Mary is now sluggishly moving. For the first time ever you are worried."Mary you can do it! I'm almost there."Mary on her part focused herself on not getting caught. But when she jumped on a mini fountain, she tripped and fall on the water below."Shit, MARY!""My queen help."Mary tries to stand up. When suddenly."GO!"A shadow tries to kick the cloud but it became futile as it dissipates into nothingness. Then a hoard of shadow comes swarming the cloud dust the dust itself trying to kill the massive flood of shadows."Come my niece stand up. And here eat it."Okada helps Mary up and gives a big ball of corruption. Mary obliges and eat it her body felt rejuvenated and her energy returning. Okada then disgustingly jogging towards you her pants of breath for trying to reach your position and his body jiggles from the fat in every step. Yet his help was a welcome one."Here my queen.

Maybe we can dispel whatever thing that is circling around.""Un! CLEANSE!"The buzzing sound stops and drop like flies. The man still not breathing until suddenly he coughs very hard and gasping his breath. His skin returning to its lively color and vomits something black."Rei do it.""Sir please look at me.""What is happ-""You are just sitting here and have a bad breakfast. Now stand up and look for some food that will not spoil your stomach.""Ah...yeah i think i had a bad breakfast.""Senpais....""What is it Kanna?""Then slums......it has similar situation.

>>3201092"Okada how did you find us.""At first i was minding my own business when suddenly i hear a scream. A scream my niece would only say. I immediately jump on a helicopter and rushed as fast as i could. Then jump off a little ways and rode a car here. When i saw my niece being attack my....being wanted to protect her. And so i did. It feels weird my queen but....it feels a man formerly known as Yoshinobu Okada tries to take away my body again. Maybe his spirit went 5 stage of grief and accepted it. Hope truly is a formidable weapon."Getting the corruption you hastily eaten it and the ball immediately completes the charge and then some for your energy."Damn it if i can't suck it then i will forcefully shove it inside."I will support you my queen.""Then break all your shadows and i will finish this once and for all."Okada recalls all his shadows and the cloud dust looks for target. Then it looks at you. With their target in sight you also run dragging whatever small enough to be suck inside the hole. Jumping you extend your hand and straight on the cloud. The resulting was astonishingly successful. The cloud realize that they were forcefully suck though the hole as you fall from your jump. The cloud slowly shrinking and shrinking until everything was sucked inside the hole. Closing it you gracefully land on the concrete.>You succeeded escaping the Plague of Death. Congratulation sorry about the cliche shonen cool guys arrive late to help you in times of need trope.Mary is the first to hug you behind nuzzling her cheeks on your face as how she was afraid and that you will be sad and she cries a lot. You try to calm Mary down as best as you can. Okada in the back smile at the display then frown."What is happening to me."Calming Mary down was a difficult task but you manage to calm her down.

>>3201137>>3201138"Take the car. Helicopter is too risky especially with flying girls.""Alright. Men, take the helicopter back to the next city and store it in the warehouse. Also get the car back here."Going back to where the dust cloud was last seen, there was a big black ball of corruption floating in front of you. Picking it, you return to Okada which was delighted about your spoils."So wanna eat it and power up yourself? You can also keep it in case too. Just put it on your hand or stomach or legs...no wait not your hand. You may unwillingly siphon it without you knowing. And don't worry if you keep it inside your body. As long as you don't eat the corruption, it will not do anything besides gaining weight.">Eat (gain 3 skills from shadow of death)>KeepMinutes later the car is in front of you and you all go in. Mary although reluctant but you offer your lap for her to take a nap. She happily obliges and get comfortable with your lap. The car start moving back to the mansion."We all need to keep a low profile; after the stunt that little shit of a shadow of death pulled the magical girls will be on high alert. The last thing we need is for someone to ping your chopper and think that it was somehow related in all of this.

I don't want anything chasing behind my back while I'm busy killing my previous teammates.""Of course my queen."The car ride was silent after that in respect for Mary's adorable snores and her nuzzling to your stomach. An adorable display you reckon.1/2
>>3201338Arriving at the mansion you princess carry Mary inside. Okada goes inside his office while you put Mary on her bedroom. Tucking her in nice and snug, you go to Okada's office to ask some questions that almost slips in your mind right now. Opening the door, you see the man in his chair eyes closed. He opens his eyes and then face you with his stoic natural face waiting for you to speak."So what's it like being Yoshinobu Okada again? I kind of woke up with my memories. Is that weird among shadows. I have a lot of questions about shadows but I've been too busy to ask.""To be honest, I don't know. We shadows don't have memories of our own. We just highjack a body that wallow in the bottom pits of despair to the point of no return. After that there is no telling what the shadow will do to your body. Maybe you are a special case and that's why you are my queen.""About that and although I asked it back then but.....why call me queen?""A week before I was born from the vices off this man and before I met you, I had a dream. Naturally shadows don't dream. We are just sin manifested by human darkest and negative emotion. Anything we do is to satisfy our craving. Craving for our sin. You Queen Junko possess 3 qualities that makes you unique.""What qualities?""Envy, Pride and your strongest one. Wrath.""Are you talking about....""It's not that but rather it is one of major sins a human can commit. It's not a based template where even with something like you have doesn't mean you are powerful. Look at the previous fight. You see that you are not powerful right?""Everyone has strengths and weaknesses.""I have to admit if someone is more richer than me and offers me to do something I would do it in a heartbeat due to my sin manifested from greed. Anyway my dream went to this. You are sitting on my manor with your obsidian black throne filled with skulls impaled. I even see Mary on it. It was five of it that was displayed behind the throne. I was in front of you grovelling at my feet. You saw my usefulness past it's own and decided to kill me to empower yourself more. It is then I woke up and did everything lest I will be killed. I try not to draw your ire or I would be nothing."To be honest, this is a lot to take in. It also crossed your mind killing Okada after you finish with your revenge. Closing your eyes, you sigh at the revelation Okada told you. It might not be a prediction that happened but most of it crossed your mind. Deviating to a different question you opened your eyes and said."Say do you have some vacation spots you can recommend Okada?""Hmm i do have many. For now rest. I will catalogue some vacation spot for you."Walking out of the office, you are mentally tired from what is happening. Going to your room you immediately fell asleep in the middle of the day.(2/2)Just updating early in the morning. Now I need my power nap again.
>>3201338>Keep>>3201340we definitely need to take a moment and think what are we going to do, because altough Okada's dream of us becoming the queen of shadows is appealing, it goes against everything that we are. maybe there is a way to reconcile both aspects of our new life, but the idea evades me.
>>3201338Just to check there is no downside to keeping the corruption and we could away absorb it for the skills later?If so we would definitely want to just hold it and see if we can slowly siphon its powers as we burn corruption. If my hunch is correct about how that works.There's a lot of interesting stuff in these past few updates. I'm definitely going to have to re-read them and some parts of the past chapters.
>>3201550[spoilers]It does sound like something the shadowy figure would do. She is definitely not Junko though[/spoilers]>We just hijack a body that wallow in the bottom pits of despair to the point of no return. This could explain our unique condition what if the shadow self is the shadow that attempted to inhabit Junko but something went wrong either due to her magical girl nature or some other reason.>dipped too deep with negativity your corruption empowered your magical skills and breaking anything that would harm you physically and mentally>"What qualities?">"Envy, Pride and your strongest one. Wrath.">"Are you talking about...."Wrath fits but what about the others? This makes it out to sound like Junko was a really shitty person. Same with what the shadow self told us. We kind of don't really have examples of that in current Junko's character. I'm getting too many Alex Mercer/Prototype vibes here. This raises the questions: Can Junko trust her memories? and Is Junko now the real Junko? More reasons to meet up with Yuu. Furthermore, if Junko was such a shitty person how was she able to become a magical girl and wield hope in the first place. The shadow self made it sound like MG's are pure in some way. Hope defiently does sound like what is changing Okada (trying to avoid his own death) and brought Mari back as Mary (hoping for a friend)
>>3201760>Spoiler That's what the shadow said. Her magical girl past altered the corruption process and we are reactig differently(for example, at this point a normal person would show several mutations and evident signs of corruption). How different the process is, i can't tell other than the fact that we use the corruption to get stronger.>This makes it out to sound like Junko was a really shitty person[...]how was she able to become a magical girl and wield hope in the first place?To be fair, all the other girls are shitty on their own. Sashimi is a manipulative bastard, Yuu probably lusts after junko and mari was a coward.Now, on the other point; we don't explicitely need hope to be a good MG. Hope was the strongest emotion that we had when we fought the shadowbane(and i think it was the one that hurts this kind of shadow the most). There is no information that says that we can't use other positive emotions to hurt shadows.
>>3201340Hey, do you have a Twitter or are on Discord (not necessarily have a chatroom) or anything of the sort?
>>3201760>"Envy, Pride and your strongest one. Wrath."It makes sense really if you think about what we knew.The wrath embodies when Junko finally snapped at the bullies.The envy is of all the other kids with fathers , that don't get bullied, or have friends. Hence she's attached to Yuu. I'm drawing a blank on the pride part but we do have okada's giant empire at our disposal and didn't even bother to use it instead of doing everything ourselves.
>>3201928I don't have Twitter but I'll make one.
>>3202318I have never though making twitter is so hard but here it is. I'm so bad at this social media thingy. Anyway here is my twitter although pray that i would not forget to post things here.https://twitter.com/CorruptorQMAlso starting writing. Should have not wasted my time setting up twitter and instead made when i have free time. It took me 3 hours because i don't want my phone to be binded that when i realize i can just delete it after signing in.
You woke up in the middle of the night. No shadow dreams and no nightmares. Just a dreamless sleep. Sitting on you bed, you collect your thoughts about Okada told you. Being a dark queen, your nature, even some things a shadow would act. Even Okada is changing as we speak. He may not hold all the answers you seek but sometimes you are afraid of what you might become until it's too late.>"Ah~~ more caaaaaake.....Mmmm! please feed me mooooore..."Seems Mary is still sleeping. But if Okada said that shadows don't dream then what are you and Mary experiencing? Does that mean magical girls are the exception? More question keeps popping out in your head, the more you think about it. Getting out of the bed you go to the mirror to see your reflection. A face that was damaged from the previous battle. A scar that marred your beauty from the shadow you fought. The shadow that swallowed you whole. That shadow who made you what you are right now. Tracing it with your fingers, the memories of battle came flashing back. Your eventual struggle, your futile attempts, your unwinnable situation, the eventual abandonment, the cries of your best friend."I will have my revenge, I swear."Turning back to the cursed visage of what you are right now, you exit the room to visit Okada to present his choices for your vacation. Albeit a short one. Opening the door to his office, he is browsing some kind of brochure from travel agencies and a laptop that says "Best tourist spots." Seems he is busy all day."Ah my queen. Good to see you here. You see i have narrowed some of the choices. Feel free to add your own if you want to.">The city. Although the girls are here doesn't mean you can have fun. Complete with shopping malls that Okada owns, arcade that Okada owns, Apparel store that Okada owns, Shoemart that Okada owns, Restaurant that Okada owns and end on a hotel that Okada owns>The outskirts. There is a famous mountain ryokan inn complete with hot springs and open baths. Good to soothe your corrupted soul.>Outside the city. There is beach and swimsuit is a must....at least according to Okada.>Inquire about the placess (which one?)>Write-in (here if you choose above, feel free to add your itinerary. Or make something new altogether.)
>>3202652>>Write-in>A trip to Not!Tokyo>Fun in the city! Theme parks! and a little bit of everything!
>>3202652Is there anywhere presented with a university that has a good archeology department nearby? Just because we're going to be relaxing doesn't mean that we can't put some college student to work on researching for us.= in the meantime.I did a glance and the Tochigi Prefecture (in Kanto) might be a good place.Nasu (in said prefecture) is known for having onsens , sake and ski resorts. It's also where the Tamamo-no-Mae was put down so it's probably a good place to learn about shadows if we can make sure to hide that we are shadows.
>>3202738There isn't since that kind of study is normally found on the capital cities. Although you can start on a local museum if you want to.
>>3202749That might work, but we're getting Okada to try and tell us how to cloak ourselves from being sensed before we walk right up to some ancient magical girl cabal and get shanked.
>>3202696I think i'll run again tomorrow and leave it so more votes will come. Gonna sleep and maybe if i wake up early and have enough votes i'll try to update till then goodnight.
>>3202652>>The outskirts. There is a famous mountain ryokan inn complete with hot springs and open baths. Good to soothe your corrupted soul.Baths are nice.
>"I think we have everything.">"Yeah Yuu and Rei are tired from those things that icky flies flying on their body.">"Senpai, i won't forgive them! They even harm little children. They must die.">"Calm down Kanna. Although we don't have information on who did it but if Yuu said that it disappeared then this must be the last of the shadow powers.">"So this is the one that Shadow of Plague that was missing and then make it's last stand?">"I would like to think it is but....it's not the same Rei.">"Ah no matter i wanna go home now. My muffin awaits me.">"Uhm....Rei can i....">"No Yuu, you will eat it all and still ask for more. Also don't forget. You are banned inside my house.">"Please get over it i'm not the same as last time Rei.">"Girls please. Let's go home for now. We have a long day and we are tired. We will meet first thing in lunch break tomorrow.">"Yes Sachiko.">"Alright.">"Yes senpai.">"Good. Also Yuu take a break. You still not recovered from yesterday. Feel free to take another day from school. I'll work something out so you can have your rest.">"T-thanks Sachiko."As the girls start to go to their own home, Yuu saw a car that was too suspicious. How the hell a rich looking car going to the slums?"Maybe a Yakuza? No not worth my time."Yuu jumps from rooftop to rooftop until she in on her way home. The day burning through close to noon as the mysteries she encounters from Junko slipping away from her little by little.
Dang I missed the updates tonight.The hot springs and inn are the safest choice. I don't think we should really run around traveling to other cities unless we can assure that there are no magical girls in the area or cloak ourselves somehow. We should probably get Mary's input too, as this whole trip idea is to see if we can build up some positive emotions with her. As much as she likes getting pampered it might get boring. Maybe we could combine some of the first option's shopping with the onsen trip. Take a long weekend. If recall correctly, Mary has been basically running around in her dark magical girl outfit and Junko doesn't have much in the way of regular clothes either. We would need to make sure that we could keep a low profile though. Junko and Mary probably don't want to get caught by someone they went to school with. Mari's disappearance still hasn't entirely blown over yet. We could also use this as a good excuse to meet up with Yuu. (I was originally worried about Okada trying to double-cross us or having been responsible for Junko's current predicament. Thus I wanted to keep Yuu as an outside force that Okada would have no clue about. Now that we know the guy is just trying to save his own skin, I'm no longer as suspicious of him.) We could leave a car, with a human driver, to pick Yuu up at a place of her choosing Sunday morning and meet up with her at the inn. Then, have the driver drop her off in the evening so she doesn't have to miss school or anything. Yuu could say that she was shooting the inn and its surroundings for photography club. Depending on the current day of the week, Junko has time to prepare Mary for the meeting. Plus it's a good idea to reach out to Yuu. I thought she would have called us with the phone number we gave her by now. We might want to reach out to Okada too. I feel bad about the guy just slaving away all the time. He did just save our hides. While this is more a girl's trip and it might look weird if he came along, he could always meet up with us at lunch or get a separate room at the inn.
>>3202652changing from >>3202696 to >The outskirts. There is a famous mountain ryokan inn complete with hot springs and open baths. Good to soothe your corrupted soul.>>3203293We should call Yuu on our vacation. The location will disorient any would be trackers and we can plan a proper meeting with her for the future. Also, yeah, we definitely need a shopping day. After Mary's little problem, i don't think she has any clean clothing (or clothing at all) left.
>>3202652>"Okada, thanks for your help back there. Things were starting to get out of hand back there. You probably saved us.">"I know you like running all of those businesses being a shadow of greed and all but have you thought about getting out of your office more. I know it sounds rich coming from a teenage girl, especially me in particular, but you should delegate more when you can. I didn't mean for you to stay up all night doing research for me.""I was planning a girl's trip but your welcomed to come along for parts. It would be weird and look even weirder if you showed up with us in some places, but feel free to head to lunch or the inn with us.">"Your welcomed to train with Mary and I. You're probably just as curious as me about what your powers can do. No offense, but you might want to work out a bit I seem to have a knack for attracting trouble. Just don't try to start jumping between rooftops right away. You don't look like you're the jumping between rooftops type.">Take a long weekend. Mix >The city.

>Mari and junko visit the city to check all it has to offer>Cue montage and song related as background.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpk8ym8iqWU
>>3203312(2/2) >Proposed Itinerary >Friday Morning: Shopping. Start out at one of the malls. Mary is going to need basics. Junko could always use a bit more variety. What's a trip to a mall without some new makeup or perfume. Maybe get those swimsuits for later and maximum embarrassed Junko. Maybe pick up some games and movies for Mary. Some shoe shopping too. The girls could both use a good pair of boots. Who wants to go jumping from rooftop to rooftop in heels. It might be useful to get a good camera with a variety of lenses and a bag to hold it all. Could use it for recon work or just to unwind. >Early afternoon: Lunch at Okada's restaurant. It might have a private room for business meetings or private parties. Use that. Would probably only take an hour afterwards, salon appointment. We would want to use someplace that Mari didn't use before. Rent the whole place out. Why just stop at hair and nails? Do they do massages? >Evening: Retire back to the hotel. All that shopping calls for an impromptu fashion show. Junko is probably going to have to teach Mary to dress herself or tie shoes(the poor girl). Put on one of those movies and order room service. Go to bed. >Saturday morning: Get in the car and travel to the ryokan inn. Get checked in and all that. Hopefully it is the type with a sitting room for meals and a separate enclosed bedroom(if we are mixing business with pleasure). See about food. >Afternoon: Hey if there is mountain scenery, might as well go for a hike. Try out that new camera so Yuu can mock our noob mistakes later; get those boots broken in. Head back and get cleaned up at our room. >Evening: Soak in the hot spring. Who knows what hijinks Mary could cause? Get dinner at the inn. Ask Mary how she is enjoying herself. Go over last minute preparation for the next day. >Spend Sunday Relaxing if we don't meet up with Yuu. We could always spend some time with Okada outside of work if he accepts going along with us. If we set up the meeting with Yuu. >Sunday: Have Mary wait in the bedroom. Tell her that we are going to be discussing some nasty stuff and the meeting might get emotional. Only come out when we tell her to. >Meet Yuu in the sitting room. She probably has a lot of questions to ask. Do our best to answer them. Try to explain how our powers work. Tell her about the shadow self and that we need to do more research into magical girls and shadows. As I explained in>>3189199 Tell Yuu a semi-truthful account of Mari's death (leaving out that we killed her and making up the details for that to fit). Introduce her to Mary. Leave the rest of the day for the three to hang out if the meeting goes well. I would flesh this out when its not so early in the morning/closer to when it comes up in the story if anons make it a reality.
>>3203329>shopping mallwhat? like a peasant?Maybe something more high end.I want a Gothic Lolita dress for Junko.
>>3203385Rich people can just reserve the entire store/mall for themselves when they shop. Everyone else would end up kicked out
>>3203468yeah, because that doesn't raise attention
>>3203479And what are the peasants going to do about it?
>>3203488blow Mary's cover
>>3203555How? They were kicked out of the store.
>>3203385Not all shopping malls are created equal. https://youtu.be/3D4a3krGq00 I think Okada would own at least one on the higher end side. Plus it is discrete and the girls need basic clothes before worrying about flashy stuff like formal gowns or suits.Junko dosen't strike me as the gothic lolita type. Mary on the other hand... Imagine Junko trying to get Mary into a corset and a hoop skirt. That might be more embarrassing than underwear shopping.>>3203468That's what I was planning for the salon. It would be an easier affair. Just generously cover tips for all the stylists for the amount of time the girls are there plus a little more for the house.
Wow....I didn't know shopping for clothes is serious business.
>>3202696A trip to not!Tokyo where disneyland exist....or equivalent to one>>3203195>>3203293>>3203301>>3203312Hot springsWell Hot springs win. Seems Junko wants to take it easy.
>>3203780"I think a hot springs would be nice.""Yes. Away from the city, nature surrounds you and quiet too. I'll make reservations for two. But currently it's evening so at best you can go first thing in the morning. You also have to take a bus since going to a car would defeat the purpose of going to vacation. And oh, here is some cash if in case Mary wants something.">Recieved 100,000 yen"In any case that would be enough for you to go to the city and buy some casual clothes although if you visit my store here is my business card. They will know that you can get anything you want. Also please don't lose it because it is not just a card but rather a thinly disguised credit card that has a blank check. Also don't recklessly swipe everything. It would hurt my soul very much""I'll try, no promises though if Mary goes to a restaurant and feeds herself for 50 people.""That is all i can ask for....please look out for Mary.""What about you Okada? Want to come? Although this is a planned for a girls night out. And also you would stand a lot.""Ah no worries. Unlike you who can thinly disguise as civilians without making an MG suspicious unless you are in close proximity with them, I'm not as exactly subtle as you are, or even Mary. You see the reason i don't leave is because i can't control my corruptive aura for me to supress. My being outside means i am broadcasting my own position for all magical girls for them to hunt. I am risking my life when i was saving Mary my queen. I thought i would fail you that those you want to kill are going to us but from a stroke of luck they seem to be....ignoring us.""That is because when one dust cloud chasing us, a small part of it latch on a person making them unconscious. If it goes by the shadow of death powers, It may be slowly sucking it's lifeforce until it is dry and left to rot. Or so my theory goes yet i was too busy not to get caught so i ignored it.""How lucky i must been. No no no, rather it is a genius plan for queen to execute. Leave something for other magical girls to investigate on their own while chasing something that is already gone. It's going to frustrate them some more.""It was not intentional but whatever. So you are not coming.""I'll be safe here inside the mansion. Like i said. This one is coated with hope energy that the shadows are afraid to touch the outer walls. As long as no one goes inside, no one will find us. The ones who coated this one? I don't know. Maybe back in the days, this was a once base of magical girls?""Maybe. I'll go now and rest in my room.""Goodnight my queen."Going to your room, you sat on your bed thinking about something. Then you remember one time about when you were a magical girl back then.>"Junko, Yuu, sit down and make yourself comfortable. Close your eyes and concentrate. Look for a light deep inside. It could be anywhere, it could be somewhere.">Sit down and concentrate, look for the light (1d100)>No (Rest for tomorrow)

>>3203841>>3203845>>3203867>*Yuu's home, afternoon*Returning home, you sneaked on your window hoping that your mother didn't knocked the door to check on you. It is then that you hear your front door open and hear your mother's voice."I'm home. Are you awake Yuu?""I am mom."Your mom then opened the door and sat by your side."Oh good. I was visiting your school for your medical excuse when your homeroom teacher gave me this."Reaching out the paper you read the contents."Traveling consent formWe are hereby asking permission to take Mitsukoshi Yuu for a 3 days and 2 nights for a field trip to Ryumeki Mountain Ryokan Inn as part of nature studies and to familiarize the importance of nature for the young generation to take care of our forest to be experienced for the future generations onwards. By signing this paper, you have accepted the terms and conditions with your consent that any untoward accident should happen, the school will not be held liable from any accident that would happen from the duration of the field trip.""The mountains huh...""I already signed the papers if you want to go but if you are still feeling sick feel free to tell me so we can call your homeroom teacher and cancel your reservation.""Alright mom. Thanks.""Anything for you."Writing... congrats I have something in store for you.
>>3203894Sitting comfortably, you slowly remember what you gained. Waking on a dark abyss, you can't still see what is in front of you. Yet at the same time, something is tugging you from somewhere. As you let the tugging sensation guide you, the vision you had is slowly getting clearer and clearer. But someone blocked the way.>I didn't expect you to find your way back to light"Out of the way.">No. Because if you come closer past me I...no both of us will start hurting."I don't care."Moving past her she stops you pulling your arm.>Do you realize who you are? You are a fucking shadow Junko. And if you go nearer, you are going to be hurt and most likely be killed."Well why don't we kill each other then.">Your ridiculous. Stop this. You are not ready yet."What ready? What do you mean? That I'm not corrupted enough to do your bidding? That I'm not acting queenly?">No you fucking dunce. You are not ready unless you have enough darkness to fight the light and have the balance in-between so you can survive the hope inducing pain that you are going to feel you stubborn fool. Please listen to me.>Listen to the shadow?>Yes (nothing to gain)>No (hurts a lot but it will be worth it. If you survive that is.)
>>3203918I forgot to put another option.>Compromise (go closer where you can feel the pain bearable where you can draw power from the light.)
>>3203918>"NOW you are acting all nice and friendly Miss "I already got everything i need from you". Fuck. You.>No (hurts a lot but it will be worth it. If you survive that is.)
>>3203918>"NOW you are acting all nice and friendly Miss "I already got everything I need from you". Fuck. You.>"Why should I trust you? What do I have to lose from fucking dying? I'm fucking dead already. Pain! You asshole, you don't know the first thing about pain.>No (hurts a lot but it will be worth it. If you survive that is.)Who Dares, Wins
Might be busy at work today so no time for longer posts/ideas. How close is that floaty ball of death and what are the chances that we could shunt all of the pain off into it?
>>3203998its...inside us. so i think we could definitely try that.
>>3203998>>3204021I'm not sure it will work but we might as well try anything. What about thinking positive thoughts too? (Saving Mom, Happy times with Yuu, Brushing Mary's hair)
>>3204084You forgot the most important one; proving this fucking shadow wrong.
>>3204087Damn right, especially I'm pretty sure that this shadow is the one that ate Junko back in the abandoned warehouse. She picked the wrong girl to mess with.
>>3204090So it accidentally self immolated?
>>3204130The shadow wasn't expecting us to be such a stubborn and dense motherfucker.
>>3204130 Considering what we have found out about shadows in the past few updates. The shadow latched onto Junko's body and tried to manipulate Junko into getting more corruption. Probably to attempt to displace Junko's soul. It did a really poor job.
>>3203954>>3203925Write-in and a solid NOWriting
>>3204326>And that's how Junko committed an hero.
"NOW you are acting all nice and friendly Miss "I already got everything i need from you". Fuck. You.">I'm helping you here and try not to get killed!"Why should I trust you? What do I have to lose from fucking dying? I'm fucking dead already. Pain! You asshole, you don't know the first thing about pain.">"THEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU FUCKING DOING YOU IDIOT."Ignoring the shadow you step forward. You shake your arms to break from the shadows grasp. Nearing the white blinding light, your skin starts to sting, then you feel a burning sensation through your body. You felt like melting from your body. Yet you power through. You don't care if someone says you can't do it. You can prove them wrong.>"Shield!"A stack of 5 shields comes in front of you where later by layer are slowly melting while you resummon the ones are destroyed. Yet suddenly the light intensified. Your shields dropped down and you fell down from the brilliance pf the light. You try to crawl yet your body feels like it's eating away your own soul. You can't even gaze the intensity of the shining beacon you once have.>"The things I do for this girl....HERE CATCH!"Something rolled on your side. Weakily reaching for it, you feel a familiar sensation that you know too well.>"Eat that shadow of death essence and maybe you can survive from your stubborn thinking you idiot. I fucking hate your guts you stupid oaf.">Eat?>No
>>3204396>>Eat it while middle finger saluting the shadow.What a healthy relationship we have with our inner demons.
>>3204396>>Eat it while middle finger saluting the shadow.
We should probably try to drag the shadow into the light with us. I want to see what she thinks of that. To keep up with the quotes: "To the last I grapple with thee; from Hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee."
>>3204449I don't think we have enough strength to do that and i'm pretty sure that our shadow is already scared shitless because we are basically killing ourselves right now.
>>3204408>>3204413>>3204419"Girls, did you received the papers?""Yeah senpai. Too bad they picked a boring spot. I wanna go to the beach!""Well that is too bad. It seems that we are going near the city. But that is fine since in case something happened, we can go there instantly. And we have a lot of time to sneak out since the teachers can't really bother to check all of us. We just need a good time to sneak out.""I would rather not Sachiko. It's nigh time for me to take a break from all those happenings.""What happened Rei?""....one....ole....my.....fins.""Excuse me?""Nothing"Writing
>>3204464Plus it's not like we can't just drop the curtains whenever we feel like it if we survive this to fuck with it in the future.
>>3204473I have high hopes that our shadow won't try to be a dick again after this little stunt.
>>3204489She will. It is just a question whether or not we can have an opportunity to kill her.
>>3204494eeeh. she could have let us fizzle away, but instead gave us the corruption core. I'm not taking away the (huge)possibility of her being an asshole to us again, but in this moment she is good in my book.
>>3204502More like it didn't want us to take it with us.
>>3204502We always had the core on us. We could have always used it.
Eating the big ball of corruptive energy, your strength is slowly coming back. Your shield is reforming itself in front of you, letting you have time to stand up. Steadying your balance, you almost fall down, but you hold on. With determination in your eyes, your whole body exhumes corruptive aura, and explodes around you, dispelling some burning sensation from your body.>NEW SKILLS AQUIRED>R̴̛̀́̀E̶͜͟͠S̨̀͡͡U̷͝Ŗ̕̕͟͞E̷͜͞C̢̢̀̕T̴̸̵͠͞Į̶̧̀͝O̡̧N̵̢͘̕ ̨̛́-̧̡͜͞ ̢́͠O̷͢͝͞ņ̛́͞e̢ś̸̸͡͠ ̨͡J̧͠͡u̴ǹ̴̢̕͞ķo̢͟͠ ̡̛̀̕f̕͜e̷̕͞l̴l̶̢̀͘ ̡̡̀͘͞o̢u̡̡̕t̷̵̨̕ ̧͝ơ̴͘̕͞f̡̡ ̛͟b̀̀̕͢͜a̡͘t̡͡͡ţ̸̕l̴̶̀͞e͘,̷̷̶̛ ̢͢͜͜s̀h͞͝e̷͘͘ ͢͢͡w̧̧̕į́́̕͢l̶̴̸l̛͜͞ ̴̸b̨̨e̷ ͘͟r̨̀͜͟e͢͡͠͞v̨̀̕i̶v͘e̷̴̕d̴͝ ̶̡o̷̕n͞c̴̶͝͝e͜.̷̶̵̷̧ ̧̨̛C̛̀͢ą͢ǹ̕͜ ̴̨̀͘a̧̕͠l̵̢s̶̀ò̸͜͜͢ ̡b̷͠e̸̶̴̕ ͠u̷̶s̀é̴̕͘͞ḑ̵̕̕͠ ̸̡t̵̷̀o͢ ̢̛̀͢͟ą̛͞ļ̵ļ̶̸͡͞įe̴s̵̀̕͠.̡ MUTATION CONFIRMED....DESTROYED BY OUTSIDE SOURCECHE̢AT͠ DȨATH -̛ On̕c̴e J͡ưnk̵o͡ ̡r͢ec͟ei͟v̀e͜s a̢ ̵fatal a̴t̕t͞ac͞k ̸that́ w̢iļl̀ kil̵l̡ her,̕ ̵ins͡t́ea̢d̢ it͠ ̡wil̀l reg̡e̴ne̷r̨a͟tȩ ̵h̛e͟r̴.̢ ́Onl͘y ̛wo̕r͞k͝ o͠nce͞ àņd́ ̧w͢i͠l̷l ͝not̴ tr͘i͠gg͢er̢ ̨Ra̴ge ͡II.̴͞I̡ḾMU͘N̨ÌT̡Y͘ (UPG̷ŖADE)̕ ̀- ͘Im͜m̨únity̨ ͞t͟o͘ ̶c͠u̡r͞ses ͘and̵ bin͢ding͢ ̛s̷pe̕lls.SUM̡MO͝N ͘S͡H͡ADÒWBA͜NE͘S - ͡Summ̴o͞ns ͡t̀h͞e͠ s͟e̸c̀ónd ̨str̨on̸ge͟st s̡haḑo̸w.̸ Li͟mit̛ęd̴ t̛o͟ 5 sųmm̀o͟n̨s.DU͘E̕ TO͡ C͠O̢RRUPTIV͡E PO̸ẀE̶R DI̵MI̸NI͠SHI̴NG̨ F̸R̵ÒM ̢L͞IGH̵T, C͡HÓOS̨E O̸N̶E B͘E͘FO̶ŖE ͡I̷T'S GO͞N͞E͟You gave the shadow a middle finger before you run to the light.

Giving yourself time to recover from a near death experience, you lie yourself on the bed.>"You are not ready, unless you have enough darkness to fight the light, and have the balance in-between so you can survive the hope inducing pain that you are going to feel, you stubborn fool. Please, listen to me."What does she mean? Ironic a shadow wants to help you, when she should go and corrupt your whole being. Skeptical as to the shadow's actions, you try to stand up, yet after many failed attempts, you decide to hold onto something to stand up for a couple of minutes. With your foot strength slowly coming back, you walk slowly out of the room and into Okada's office, where he is sleeping again on his chair.You walk over to the sleeping shadow. "Okada! Wake up."He looks distressed. "What happened, my queen? Did someone attack you?" You shake your head. "No, I think I had a bad morning."He seems relieved at that. "Oh...well, take care of yourself. But the good thing is, you can go and have your break now. So good luck, and have fun outside, my queen.""Yeah, I will."Going to Mary's room was penitence. You can walk, but you walk like a limping girl. You steady yourself close to the walls until you open Mary's room, where she is combing her hair with a towel wrapped around her.She looks at you giddily. "My queen! Look, I go to bathroom myself and clean! Did I do good?""Good job Mary. You did great."She beams. "Yay! Queen praised me!"You smile thinly. "Call me Junko. We are friends, right?"She nods rapidly. "Yeah! Sure, Junko!"Now the whole day is yours....but where to start?>Go shopping for clothes.>Go to the mountain ryokan inn immediately>Write-inHere is your vacation episode. Since you didn't vote for beach one so no beach episode. Maybe one day. Also Skills are now update...in a bit.
>>3204646>Go shopping for clothes.
>>3204646>Go shopping for clothes.>Make Mary piggyback us until we feel better.
>>3204646>>Go shopping for clothes.Go to Okada's mall first thing when they open. Start out with clothes shopping. Both Mary and Junko need basics. Text Yuu when we have some free time on both her regular phone and the burner we sent her. ' Hi Yuu, this is Junko. I thought I would have herd back by you now. Please get back to me. I wanted to meet up with you but I can't do anything if you don't want to talk with me. Please, I'm not mad at you.
https://pastebin.com/ppWJz89JJunko Skill List is updated.
>>3204650>>3204659>>3204668Shopping for clothes is....please be kind to me. I haven't visited any apparel store to myself since most of my clothes are either gift or bought by my momWriting.....
>>3204717You don't miss much. Its just a normal store that only has clothing. In the medium-low class stores you usually have to grab your own clothes and then take them to the changing booth to see if they fit or you like them, but sometimes in the high class one there is employee that can help you choose and brings you clothes directly to the booth.
>>3204717Confident that you can stand on your own, you wait for Mary to change her old clothes. You can see some remnants of dried blood. You really need to visit the apparel store and choose clothes for Mary that isn't covered by blood. Or try not to be covered by blood. When Mary finished changing her clothes, you decide to walk outside the mansion to take a breather for yourself. Ever since you arrive here, you always jump around from building to building, going to your destination. But now you are currently walking. The strong breeze sweeps past you, and Mary has to hold her skirt down in a hurry in order to keep herself modest.At least she knows decency at least.Walking to the nearest bus stop, you sat down to wait for the bus to come. "Junko, what are we gonna do?""Hm? Well we are going to have some fun.""Like killing people?""No Mary! I mean, go shopping, eat somewhere then sleep together....""Ooooooh! I like that. Let's go now.""Wait! Not now. We have to ride a bus first.""Why? We can go jump around there right?""You see Mary, you need to relax and enjoy. Do you like to play right?""Yes I do!""Then follow me and behave yourself.""Alright."The bus arrived and both of you hop where your destination will be at the city center.....................Arriving on your stop, both of you step out where you see the hustle and bustle of the city. Giant T.V. with commercials of different brands and with different models. Giant posters about discounts, beauty products and games are also hanged around giant buildings. Below is a plethora of small and medium stores ranging for gadget, restaurants, hobby shops, cafe, clothing stores and convenient stores. Checking on Mary you....wait where is she?Are you ready anons? For another Mary bizzare adventure? Be back in 2 hours. Have something to do.
>>3204809>>3204717That had better be a clueless marathon to better your quest.
>>3204809Thankfully we can mind speak with her. But who am i kidding? contacting her like that is cheap and no fun.>Inb4 she got abducted again and she let herself be taken because she thinks is part of the "Mall experience".
>>3204809>Be back in 2 hoursliar
>>3204809My name is Mary. Junko is my friend and I love her very very much. Back at the bus, she was talking about what should I do. But I was busy looking at the windows because of the pretty colors from the moving screen I saw. There are also many people too! I wonder if Junko gives me a permission to kill them all? Then I saw something. A shadow expertly hides from the people around them. Junko kills shadows, so if I kill that shadow, Junko will praise me. Ah~ i want Junko to headpat me again. Going down from the bus, I immediately gave chase."Get ready shadow! I will kill you~~"Skipping with a step and dodging people left and right, you go where you last seen the shadow. Walking a little ways, you see an alley where possibly, that shadow would go into. Not until you were stopped by a girl in a weird costume."Hey! What a cute girl you are. And oh~ seems you fit that type or archetype.""What is it old lady? Do you wanna die?""PERFECT! You are hired. Come, come....you need to wear this."Dragged by a stranger, both of you go inside the establishment and into the backroom where rows upon rows of weird costumes are on display."Here, wear this. I know this is perfect. And here is your prop."The strange lady gave you a plastic ax. You have a more sharper ax than this one, but the lady is smiling at you. Maybe she wants me to kill people using this ax."Remember, stick with your archetype and satisfy our customers wishes. Alright? Then let's go here."She then, leads you to a waiting room where similar dressed girls are talking to each other. She leaves you to your own and say you will be called later. With nothing to do, you sat down on one of the vacant chairs on the corner."Hey! Did you got dragged by that lady earlier?""Yes! I think she ask me to kill people with my ax!"Showing her the plastic ax prop, she snickers at your display of enthusiasm. You pout at her while she giggled. She probably didn't know the joy of killing people."So you are the yandere type huh. Girls doing that archetype are pretty rare these days. Says it's not cute at all and only masochistic perverts are only their customers. Well I'm Reiko. I'm the tsundere archetype. We have 3 people of the same being the others are younger sister and the other one is an onee-san.(1/?)
>>3206021"Reiko-san? You are needed here. Go to the kitchen and deliver this to Table#13.""Well that is my cue."Reiko stands up and walks away, but she faces you with a smile and said "Hey good luck out there. The more convincing your act is, the higher is your pay. See you later." She waved at you and goes on her way to deliver the food.You sat there for minutes, twiddling your fingers. For some reason you have a nagging sensation in your head that something you have to do. Maybe you will remember it later."Uhhh Yandere-chan? Go to the kitchen and bring the omurice to Table#3."Yandere-chan? Reiko told you about it, maybe you are Yandere-chan. Standing up, the butler leads you to the kitchen were he passed you the dish."Now deliver this to Table#3 and don't forget to act alright?"Now where is table#3...Oh! There it is. Moving through the tables and chairs where various customer interact with their maids, you arrive at Table#3 where your customer awaits."Ah! This is great! This place haven't had a Yandere type character here for so long that I'm too excited to see how you do. Anyway what is your name?""Mary!""Good! Like a bloody Mary. This is perfect! So will you feed me Mary?""How about i kill you first then eat your body whole?"The customer(?) seems to be ecstatic about your act. He was....happy? Maybe he want to die that badly."Kyuuuuuuuuuun! MOEEEEEEE.""Well what about you feeding me then. Maybe i won't have to kill you.""I'LL DO IT!! PLEASE ORDER 10!! NO 20 I WANT 20 OF THESE!!"You give your most creepiest smile to the customer(?) in front of you.and he melted in his seat. You start to eat his dish in front of him while the customer(?) was satisfied looking at you dreamily........................Eating 20 dishes with little portions was not very fulfilling for you, but your partner in front of you was happy that you manage to eat 20 of them.The maids around you look with different kinds of expression while the lady who dragged you here, pumps his hands secretly. Even the customers are even considering ditching their maids and now looking at you."Say customer.""What is it Mary?""You will pay right?""Oh! Oh yes, here take this. And also a tip.">Received 5,000 yen."Thanks Mary-chan. I'll see you next time.....Oooooooh! This is great. This establishment is great, 5 stars naturally. I should write a review about this fantastic place."The customer(?) walks away with a happy face. Meanwhile others are trying to switch their maids with you hearing that they want to be paired with Mary-san. The counter in-front was overwhelmed by the sudden request that it was a chaotic pandemonium who brought down when a goddess landed on their place bringing eternal happiness to those who likes you.Or so you thought.Yet you see the shadow you saw earlier and you remember! You are chasing that one so Junko will praise you. Going to the backroom, you opened to see the tail end of the shadow and gave chase..
>>3206021>Siesta being tsundereoh well
>>3206023Through alleyways, you barely keeping up with the shadow that was running away from you. Feeling tempted to use your arrow, yet Junko said that you are going to behave. Shaking your head, you see the shadow getting out of the alley again. Frustrated, you run faster until you are forced to stop, skidding through the concrete and into the group of people who are watching something. Not wanting to run over the people watching, you jump through the group of people and gracefully landed on....stage? The girls on the back are shocked by your sudden reveal. The people on the other hand, are very happy. One of the group frantically said..."Hey! Don't stop dancing. You! dance with us."You try to dance with the girls from the best of your ability and the people are loving it. With your smile and your dance....well their dance. The crowd drew larger and larger. You wonder if Junko is watching you now?..............Running around the big city, you kept telepathically call Mary. No response. You are worried if she was abducted again. Was it something your skill you gained earlier made a contradiction with your previous skill? Not wanting to think for the worst case scenario, you saw one establishment who are flooded with people trying to get inside."HEY WHERE IS YANDERE-CHAN I'LL PAY 10,000!""NO I'LL PAY 12,000""FUCK OFF I'LL PAY 20,000.""WANNA GO AT ME BRO? HUH?"What the hell is happening here? You try to get closer and ask one of the bystander."What is happening over there?""Apparently there is one maid named Mary-san who made customers go act like that. I don't even know what is great with that Mary-san but i think they are just a bunch of perverts. If i were you, you shouldn't go near that place.""Thanks.""No problem young lady."Mary? At the maid cafe? What on earth is she doing?"................3 songs are finished and the people are raving. They are chanting Maid-san in front of the group, and the girls behind you are waving and blowing kisses to the fans."Thank you for listening to our song. Hope you liked our surprise!"The crowds are cheering at the group."I hope you buy our albums! Now available at the stores near you. Thank you very much."The girl bows in front of the crowd and some of them broke off. Maybe buying the album the girl is talking about."Hey! Good job out there girls. That was the best performance i could ask for. It's like you perform on the big stages." The man claps at your group happy about the recent outcome.The group bows at the man. "Thank you producer-san.""You! Are you looking for job? You seem to be pretty athletic yourself. Also keeping up with a dance even you didn't practice the steps at all? Truly fantastic. Wanna be an idol?"Shaking your head, you saw another glimpse of shadow and this time. It entered the building."Sorry but I have somebody to chase. Maybe later. Bye!"Running through the crowd again, you are dead set killing that shadow once and for all.(3/?)
>>3206055Going inside the building, you saw the tail end of the shadow again on an empty hallway. You give chase to the shadow and saw sneaking behind the door. Opening it greets you with another set of clothes. And a lot of them. Going through the sea of clothes, you caught the shadow with your hand. But you got tripped by one of the clothes stand making the shadow break away from you and into another door. Standing up and ignoring the clothes falling down on their own. The door opened to see a middle age man furrowing at the mess. Then he looks at you. He grabs your hand and you got dragged to another stage."I kept looking about you and now you made a mess on the costumes room? Have you no manners? You kept being late and late again. Now the battle maid scene is going to start and i want you to act the best as you can alright? Here is......Oh nevermind. You already have the ax already. Now go!"Pushing you through the stage where people sitting watching the show. The man in front of you boldly says...."You assassin! You killed my family! And now, I already found your true identity. You must now die with your sins, and i will have my revenge. En garde."And so the fighting sequence begins. He tries to lunge at you but you expertly dodges and slammed the ax at his side. He raised his shield and tries to fight back with series of slashes. You dodge, flip and cartwheels around the stage. The people are reacting to the scene witnessing, probably the best fighting act in the stage. Feeling that the one who attacked you felt tired, you go for the kill and kicked the shield out of his hand. He retaliates with a sword and with the power of your ax, the sword flew out of his hand and knocked back. Grinning you slowly come closer to the man murmuring something."Hey this is not on the script."Not listening. You raised you ax and try to cut his neck. He screamed loudly. Then silence.Wait! No blood. Looking at your ax, you forgot that you are using the plastic one. Tossing the ax you left the stage. The curtains closed and the people standing up applauding the scenes that they saw. Looking at the man who is shocked about the happenings and the girl who is similarly dressed as you."Manager! You replaced me with her?""YES YOU ARE FIRED!"The girl cried and run outside the room. The Manager who was broken from the shocking state, put her hands at your shoulder and shaking your body."That was great. Truly magnificent. Are you interested in acting. You certainly have talents for acting. What do you say?"The shadow slowly sneaking away from the room and you catch sight of it. Slowly walking to the sneaking shadow you try to pounce it.And failed.(4/?)
Running outside of the room the man chasing you asking to come and join his troupe. Then the producer earlier where the girls are now eating ice-cream at the nearby stall saw you and chased you again. Then later, the lady in maid costume also saw you that you are needed to the cafe. Going closer and closer to the shadow, you bumped someone and fell down with your butt. Standing up you see that Junko is the one you bumped."Junko! Junko the shadow is here. We need to kill it!".......................That hurts...a lot. Feels like you got hit by a truck and then some. Looking at the culprit, it was Mary. He was tugging your hand and said something about a shadow."Mary! What the hell are you doing?""I saw a shadow, and it escapes. So i chased it. And then it goes there and there an-""Stop! We need to....wait. Why are you wearing that maid costume.""Oh! The lady gave me these.""HEY I DIDN'T GAVE YOU THAT! THAT IS COMPANY PROPERTY."You see 3 people jogging at your position panting. After a little while they are crowding at Mary."JOIN MY ACTING GROUP!""NO! JOIN MY MYSTICAL 4 NO MAKE IT 5 SINCE YOU ARE ALREADY A MEMBER!""SHUT UP YOU TWO I FOUND HER FIRST!"The three of them are arguing and Mary is....blushing?>Drag Mary out of here while they are....preoccupied>Ask them what Mary did.>Write-inWe will go to our regular schedule this Sunday. Happy weekend anons. And hope you enjoy this little filler of mine.
>>3206103>Drag Mary out of here while they are....preoccupied
Oh yeah don't forget to follow my Twitterhttps://twitter.com/CorruptorQMFuck yeah shilling is now crossed on my bucket list
>>3206103Disappear with Mary. We can try to ask her what happened later and drop off a new meido outfit to that cafe on the way out
>>3206252I bet Mari would be very happy with how Mary is developing into.
*In Okada's office*Okada sits on his chair as the T.V. was left open in high volume. Echoes of the commentator voice rings through the large empty room of his office. Sipping a hot coffee from your table, you lean yourself in this comfortable leather chair."Stock Markets are soaring high as Okada Enterprise made a bold move in investing on entertainment industry and made a huge profit in return. Does it mean that Mr. Okada is interested to venture in media industry? Here and more on Money Talks. Now back to news.""We are now live on city center where a maid cafe was taken by storm, as people are lining up for a huge reservation about one maid that made this cafe made it's successfully hit. Dubbed as Yandere-chan or Mary-chan (no picture shown) was making waves as fans of a certain act was very taken aback with how convincing the act she made. We had an interview about the person who got lucky to table with Mary-san."You spit your coffee at the sudden revelation about your niece. What the hell you queen is doing right now?"At first I was skeptical but when she says she will kill me? I shivered in fear. Her manic smile, her creepy giggle even her smell. She smell liked dried blood! She is perfect!! PERFECT!! I tell you. I wouldn't mind bankrupting my savings account and then kills me on a random alleyway for her to leave me rot there for all eternity.""A-as you can see...uh....back to you guys.""In entertainment news, Mystical 4 has revealed a secret member in front of the crowd. She was wearing a maid costume and although the pictures are blurred due to the intensity and beautiful choreography of the group, the people treated it as if they are in the concert. We have an exclusive interview with the producer of Mystical 4.""To be honest, the group is assessing her talents as she was very rough in the edges. But with practice and u der my guidance, we can unveil her as soon as we can. For now there are no plans due to her contract aren't finalized at the moment.""Other producers from different talent agency are also searching for mysterious maid who made her way into the stage. Also they posted a sum of money for anyone who can provide information of the mysterious girl. Moving on, the culmination of the worst play on town was met with critical success as the final act was being played by a girl which the manager wished not to be named. On scene is our resident opera man."I'm here with one of the people who wat he'd the whole play. Tell me what is your opinion about the whole act?""At first it was funny. I thought I came here for political intrigue but all I saw was a comedy. Not until where the last fight came in. They deviated from the original canon that it was the most satisfying ending of all. The prince is corrupt already that the assassin move was jus-""Ok ok... spoilers alert. Back to the studio.""And that is all for news, next is Asserting Asset."You sat there dumbfounded. Just what are the girls doing right now?
>>3206192>>3206252>>3207082You drag Mary out from those noisy group until you are confident that they aren't chasing you."Mary, what on earth did you do?""You see Junko....."You sat on a carefully hidden cafe on the street while Mary describes her.... adventure. While thinking about the consequences of Mary being found out by your former group, hopefully nothing will happen. Worse case scenario, Okada will fix it."....and then I found you.""Mary, we already have this talk. And you know I care for you. But don't go on your own, or at least tell me when you found something. Alright?""A-are you mad Junko?"Putting my hand on Mary's shoulder, she stiffs at my action. "As much as I want to scold you, I don't want to ruin this mini-vacation of ours. Let's find your clothes and be on our way. Ok?""T-thanks Junko...for not angry at me.""I just hope you understand what I'm saying.""Un! I'm sorry.""Let's go then."Mary leads you where the previous maid cafe Mary was temporarily employed. Approaching the building, a girl came to both of you running."Hey! Mary, you ditched after the first customer? You are very mean you know. Some customers are treating it as a tease you know? Oh! I forgot about these. Here are your clothes and your pay.>Mary received 45,000>Total money: ¥50,000"Thanks Reiko. Oh yeah this is Junko, my bestest friend."Mary hugged me from behind nuzzling her cheeks on my face. I just stand there expressionless. Since when did I last interact with a normal person?"Nice to meet you Junko. Anyway I gotta go. Hope to see you tomorrow Mary. Bye!"Waving her hands to us, she ran upstairs and into the nearest metro. Mary happily waving at her while you do a half hearted lazy wave on her."Isn't she's the sweetest girl?""Maybe...""Now I wanna torture her. What kind of face does she makes?"Ok back to shopping trip. Dragging Mary on one of the bigger malls in the town, you looked for any stores that was owned by Okada. Thankfully, some stores have some little footnote where Okada surnames are written. There are various store on display but which one will you go first?">Clothing stores (cheap, branded, high end?)>Okada's clothing line (a little bit of everything)>Foooooooood (Mary was nagging you earlier)>Shoes (Both of your pair look pitiful)>Arcade (You missed playing Alley Fighting 2 Turbo Edition)>Karaoke (If anything about Mary told you about then she can sing....right?)>Write-inJust an early update for you all. Now back to sleep.
>>3207836 >Okada Enterprise made a bold move in investing on entertainment industry and made a huge profit in return. Does it mean that Mr. Okada is interested to venture in media industry?Well looks like Mary could be his first big client. She a cosplayer, idol, AND an actor.>>3209202>Okada's clothing line (a little bit of everything)Looking for basic stuff. Might as well support our benefactor.Reediting this because I realized that we are voting for what store to go to first and not what stores we want to got to. It's still early.>Afterwards:>Shoes: Could use some new ones. Good boots are always useful.>Clothing stores: Branded/High End. We might as well pick up a couple of nice pieces. Not sure how much 150,000 yen will get us though.>Write-in: Camera Store: Might as well pick up a nice camera and lenses. I'm not a /p/hotographer so somebody else might want to comment on it. (I would lean to a high end DSLR since we operate in low light at night a lot). Will be very expensive but I would just use Okada's card for this. It's technically a business expense.
>>3209202>Clothing stores (branded)We definitely have the money.
Will run in 2 hours
>>3209235>>3209518Visiting Clothing stores then....writing.
Going inside the mall where a steady of people lounging, shopping, or just chilling from the hot weather outside. Rows upon rows of restaurant dominated the ground floor with a large supermarket in-between. Mary immediately salivated from the smell of restaurant and fast food chains. Not wanting Mary to run again on her own, you immediately go to the escalators where clothes are generally sold. Walking past some of the branded and high end designer stores, you entered Okada's shop where a large selection of clothes ranging from toddlers, kids, teens, adults and even men's section. 3/4 of the space alone are full of girls wear while the rest are for the men. You and Mary go to the section where you can buy your casual wear."Junko, Junko....look!"Mary carried a mannequin that wears a yellow sundress and a white straw hat with pink ribbon tied on the base of the hat. A panicked saleslady tries to ask Mary to put the mannequin back where it belongs. Still though, Mary on a sundress.....>Yellow Sundress+Hat cost 6,000>Buy it for her?>Buy it for yourself? There are other selections too which caught your eye, or choices which you can casually wear.>Black T-shirt, assorted designs (2,000)>White T-shirt, assorted designs (1,200)>Colored T-shirt, assorted designs (1,700)>Assorted T-shirt all colors no design (1,400)>Assorted short skirts (1,700)>Assorted long skirts (2,000)>Underwear set (2,500)>Write-in (i'll write the price)Sorry i took so long.

>>3211680I think mary is taller?some part of my memories tell me is true, but i can't really recall from where i got that info.
>>3211711Yep Mary is taller but the store has 3 different sizes. Small, Medium and Large. Proportions can go fuck themselves (or at least on a mid-tier clothing store)
So if i rank the girls shirt sizes it would be thisSmall - KannaMedium - Yuu, Sachiko, JunkoLarge - Mari/MaryFor skirts however I'm sorry. I'm not well verse what is an ideal size for waist/hip as normal or not screwing the character proportions.But if i have to describe them characteristically...Sachiko is literally Mami from MadokaRei is Yuuki from HaruhiMari is Euphemia, Mary is YunoYuu would be Asuka but for some reason i want to replace her as a tanned tomboy who bothers Junko very much but eeeeh.Kanna is the one tanned twintail tomboyish kouhai which i planned for Yuu back then. Azusa (tanned) would be her character.
>>3211664>>3211680>>3211682The saleslady was trying to fix the wrinkle of sundress that Mary did. Approaching her, she immediately greeted you."Hello madam, how can i help you?""I'm buying this dress. I think she liked it.""I see. Then I'll get a new one and see if anything would fit her size.""Thanks."The saleslady walks away to get your order. Meanwhile Mary is busily looking at the different shirts that are displayed on mannequin."Mary come, help me pick some clothes here.""Okaaaaaaay."Then you start your shopping starting on the underwear section where you bough two pairs of underwear for both of you. At least the underwear has comfortable fabric. Going to the T-shirt section, Mary brings 2 short skirts, and a plain T-shirt for herself. You picked your favorite color black t-shirt and added it on the pile. Looking for pants, you go for a knee size pants. Good for hiking when you decide to go to the mountain. Not wanting to splurge on a single store, you go the dressing room to see if any clothes fits you. Minutes later and after trying all clothes save the underwear, you go to the counter where the lady is waiting with the sundress and a hat."Wow Junko! The lady bring that thing i told you about earlier.""Well, that is for you Mary.""Really? Thanks!"You ring all your purchases and put them in different bags>4 pairs of Underwear 10,000>Yellow Sundress+Hat 6,000>Assorted short skirts 3,400>Assorted T-shirt plain 1,400>Black T-shirt, designed 2,000>Assorted pants 3,000>Total 25,800Seriously my formatting is shit forgive me.>100,000-25,800 = 74,200Going to the Shoemart where a lot of heels shoes are on display.

>>3212129>>3212046>>3211957Choosing the sport shoes, you asked which one was the best shoes suitable for extreme situation. The salesman suggested you the running shoes due to being used regularly, it can also withstand the stress from every step, jump and even when sliding from any surface. Trusting the salesman you bought two pairs for you and Mary to fit into. Hopefully he is not ripping you off, or you will rip him a new one. Once found your exact pair, you ring your purchases and go on your way."Junkoooooooooo the smell...I'm hungryyyyyy."Well you are also famished youself, but you want to finish these shopping before hitting the plates.

>>3212305Food. Make sure she knows proper/basic etiquette. Or at least is able to use chopsticks? Mary's skill set seems really unbalanced? Or is what happened earlier almost all going from muscle memory?>Japanese arcade We must pilot a Gundam>Souvenir shopping We need something for our mom and Yuu.
>>3212325Fuck chopsticks. Forks are way better and everyone knows it.As far as i know, this is Not!Japan, so everything goes/
>>3212331It's supposed to be Japan. We just seem to be slightly localized to allow for random pun attacks by the QM
>>3212309>>3212314>>3212325>>3212331"Ok Mary, let's go down and get us some food.""YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!! LET'S GO NOW."Trying to calm the hyper Mary while not embarrassing yourself to many people are you is a hard battle but once you said that both of you will go home, she was stiff as a board. Taking her hand you go to where you can see all of the shops.>Fast food chain>All-you-can-eat buffet>Ramen shop>Chinese restaurant>Pastries?>Write-in>>3212337Guilty as charge
>>3212342>All-you-can-eat buffetMary is a bottomless barrel, so we might as well abuse the system a bit and who knows, she might get some extra recognition out of it.
>>3212342>>All-you-can-eat buffetHopefully Mary doesn’t get herself sick again.
>>3212344>>3212345>>3212348RIP staff of that restaurant.Writing
>>3212356Knowing Mary, she will eat the same thing all over again and have your bills stacked up to the ceiling. Spotting an all-you-can-eat-buffet, you go inside to see rows upon rows of soups, different kinds of cooked riced, meats, vegetables, salads, pastries, cookies, and a little bit of everything. Mary at this point, has her saliva pooling at her mouth. Once you let go of Mary's hand, she goes past you, zooming through the food and stockpiling them as best as she can. The staff was very surprised but you waved you hand which makes them relaxed yet wary from both of you. Reaching the counter, you paid the necessary fee and go to the food table yourself taking modest amounts of food.>-3,000 Total 21,200Sitting where Mary is wolfing down her food, you also start yourself eating slowly. While the staff brings you complementary water which you surmised, for Mary, in case she chokes herself. The building of food goes down and down and down until her first plate is empty. She set aside the first one and starting eating the second one. After you ate you own portion, Mary already ate her 10th plate. The staff who has been hanging behind you reminded you that if she goes there to get food again, they will start charging for every food she gets. Mary on the other hand....>Roll1d100 because Mary hunger knows no bounds

>>3212397>>3212403>>3212405Burps aloud. The amount of air she burps was enough for your hair to be blown away for a second. Good thing you covered your face from the incoming saliva. Meanwhile the waitress who saw the entire thing, stood shocked. Getting some tissue paper, you wiped you arms and sit a little bit to let some of the food you ate digest........After the waitress pulled out herself from the embarrassing display of your partner which you start not giving fucks about it. You are getting slowly desensitized by her childish behavior that simply ignoring it would be the best way. Of course there would be exceptions. But seeing Mary happily rubs her belly makes you smile a bit. Minutes later, you go out the establishment thanking all the staff for their delicious food. The staff on the other hand, was relieved that a monster was going out of their restaurant lest they would go bankrupt.Maybe Okada should own an All-you-can-eat-buffet. Well you can pitch that in after you vacation.Now your tummy is full, you felt that you want to....burn this food you ate. Or go to the mountain inn right now.>Go to the mountain inn>Arcade (You missed playing Alley Fighting 2 Turbo Edition)>Karaoke (If anything Mary told you about then she can sing....right?)>Write-in
>>3212417>Arcade (You missed playing Alley Fighting 2 Turbo Edition)
We will continue this tomorrow. Goodnight everyone.
>>3212417>Camera shop: Look at a nice camera and lenses. It’s totally for reconnaissance on the magical girls; vacation photos are a bonus. Look into stuff like camera drones if they have them. If the clerk seems like less than reputable or the hentai sort ask if they have pin-hole cameras or wireless cameras we could easily hide. Might as well bug our ex-teammates homes.>This will be expensive, but technically it’s for shadow business. Call Okada ahead of time and use his card for the purchase. If any questions come up use the excuse that it’s for Okada new film business (if he tells us about it) or “we are security contractors for Okada and expect discretion” if he does not.
>>3212417>Arcade (You missed playing Alley Fighting 2 Turbo Edition)>>3212465I don't think we are that tech savvy in order to make a cctv circuit.
>>3212417Arcade and Souvenir shopping for Yuu and mom.
>>3212893That’s a fair point. I just thought of the surveillance thing last night. It’s something worth looking into. Rather than having to break into the MG’s houses multiple times. Junko could corrupt some stuff drop camera’s and keep watch from the mansion. The idea of picking up a nice camera was for something outside of all the grim business to talk to Yuu about and so Junko could surveil the school without being there.
>>3212987In that case we could try to bug their cellphones and their laptops.
>>3213006That’s a good idea but wouldn’t it be harder than hooking up some cameras to their home WiFi (especially because Junko may remember some of their WiFi passwords from her days as their friend.) to broadcast where Junko could look at it remotely. If we could bug their phones we would know exactly when the magical girls are active and where they are going. Maybe Okada knows a professional who could help us?>>3212417>>3212465>Souvenir shopping for Yuu and mom.Adding this to my vote it’s too sweet not to do. Plus gives us an excuse to call Yuu.
>>3212987They're teenage girls. Their location data is probably public so you don't need to try so hard to track them.
>>3211815>spoilerI gotta say I hate it when people describe stuff with other stuff that you have to have seen to know.sorry, but I shouldn't have to do research because you're too lazy to give a proper description.
>>3212422>>3212662>>3212893>>3212982>>3213101"Mary, let's visit the arcade. I think we gonna have some fun.""Let's go!"Looking for arcade is an easy feat. Either they are located near food court or at the top most floor. But thanks to the directory you found, you arrive at the arcade where cabinet games are waiting to be played. Although there is a fairly large group who are huddling over something. Must be a new game. Asking one of the observers, he happily answers...."Yeah this is the new game, Alley fighting 3rd Alpha. Some of these guys are joining a mini tournament although I won't call 127 players a mini tournament though. They still lack a slot.""Prize money?""100,00. Surprising for a mini tournament. Hence, a lot of entries. So.....>Are you interested in joining?>If yes, please enter your IGN for Junko>No and play with Mary.
>>3213586>If yes, please enter your IGN for Junko>Shadow Queen
>>3213586I’m probably going to be in the minority here but >No and play with Mary.127 people is a lot of players and it might be a little hard to explain how Junko came back from the dead to own some noobs.
>>3213586Was meant to say 100,000 but I lack a zero here. GDI>>3213612You are not fighting 127 players Anon. If we go for single elimination you only have to fight 7 matches. Although that is my fault not explaining it. Oh I mean blame it on nameless NPC.
>>3213655I understood that we weren’t playing all of them. I just meant that that’s a lot of potential witnesses since Junko is still missing/presumed dead. It would be awkward if she played or was spotted by a classmate. The money is tempting.
>>3213706I understand. Should have bought a cap huh. And a face mask.
>>3213728Junko could always shapeshifter if she could sneak away from the crowd for a sec. Can’t believe I forgot about that.

>>3213781"Where can i sign up?""On the counter. Ask for the AF3A Tournament. They will ask for 1000 as tournament fee. They will give you a card that saves your character data forever so it's a win win for the first 128 player to have this kind of bargain."Thanking the nice guy, you move a little ways and have a chat for yourselves. For extra measures, you shapeshift some of your facial features and small changes in your body that prevent your former teammates recognizing you."Alright, Mary here's some money. Exchange this for coins and go play some games here. Remember, don't go away from this room. OK?""Alright Junko. I'll be a good girl."Both of you go to the counter where Mary exchanged her money for coins (-1,000 for Mary) and you sign up for the tournament."Mary how many coins did you buy?""10""Good enough. Have some fun alright?""Okaaaaay...ooooh, mister, mister. What is this Revolution Dancing?"You left Mary on her own and go to the designated cabinet so you can practice a little bit. After knowing some new moves and new combos, the organizer told you some rules which you already knew. After the finalization of all things, the tournament starts.Roll for the first 5 match.Round of 128 - DC 85Round of 64 - DC 60Round of 32 - DC 45Round of 16 - DC 30Round of 8 - DC 20>Roll5d100 best of 3 and may RNG Gods bless you (if the rolls something like 40-60-55-20-9 where the 55 didn't met the DC means Junko is eliminated on Ro32. Just for the sake of you and me, We will just simplify it rather than doing this play by play. For Nat 1 i will award you bonus action where you can do impossible feats.....in arcade.)

The tournament starts and you used your favorite character. Match starts at an easy pace. Your opponent clearly didn't know how to play when you noticed his moves keeps attacking. Must be a button masher. You time your attacks after every attack frame animation of his attacks until the bar goes to 0. You don't even have to use your combos. Next round was an even easier opponent. You quickly dispatch him wi
