Last evening was probably the best, and also your worst. Maybe this is why no one would like to be friends with you except Yuu who leeches you in every food stalls, restaurant and buffet she could see. Or the ragtag bunch of emotionally unstable teenagers and a corporate mogul who acts like your awkward uncle in your birthday party. Couple it with your mother who feels like high school all over again (as said by her when she's drunk), couple with a crazy girl who wants to kill you and other innocent teenagers because of her unknown unfinished business last time you fought. It was something that you will ask her after this blows up. Or not because you will kill her, or make her suffer. Whichever comes first.>Archived threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Revenge%20Quest>Previous thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3338532/>Junko Skill List: https://pastebin.com/ppWJz89J> Mari Skill List: https://pastebin.com/DuPyuzx2>Other Cast: https://pastebin.com/BgrNeUe9>Pastebin info: https://pastebin.com/u/CorruptorQM>Twitter for updates and runs(QM may sometimes forget to post): https://twitter.com/CorruptorQM>Something to take note: I use 1d100 roll under which means Nat 1 is critical and Nat 100 is critical fail>Write-in is fine as long as it fits the narrative.

>>3380696You were minding your own business stretching yourself to wake you body up. Then someone knocked on your door. You open it to see Raye in her maid costume."My queen? Someone is looking for you.""Who is it?""It's Yuu. She is currently at the door.""I'll be there."Raye bows and goes on her way. You go to Yuu who is already waiting at the door. Upon seeing her, she waves at you."Junko! I have something to say.""Yes, what is it?""You see I was fiddling with my bag and-"Then Marie opens the front door of the mansion. Seeing the both of you she says her greetings."Hi both of you! So I have been meaning to tell you about something, Can I borrow you for another fash-""NO! ABSOLUTELY NOT!""What? You would look cute with my clothes I bought today, right Yuu?""Huh? Oh! Uhmmmm, I don't know?""Oh well, I think I'll grab Mako when she gets here.""Please don't bully the girl Marie.""I can't promise anything."Marie walk away from you with a skipping steps. Yuu resumes her conversation with you."So where am I? Oh right! S-"Then Raye slides besides you."My Queen, breakfast is ready."You shrieked in surprise hugging Yuu in her neck and carried you in a princess carry. Yuu with your sudden movement who is also surprised at your action. Good thing she catches you. You stuttered reply makes Raye bows in apology."I-I'll be there later.""Sorry for the surprise, excuse me."Raye goes back to the kitchen doing whatever she is doing."S-sorry about that Yuu. You can put me down now."Yuu puts you down and compose yourself. Yuu again resumes her conversation."So I was fiddling with my bag and-"(1/2)
>>3380717Then Okada's Bodyguard appears at your side. Both of you step back from the sudden arrival of the shadow. He then bows and said..."Okada wants you at his office after your business my queen. Now excuse me."The shadow disappears and then Yuu frustratingly resumes her conversation."So I WAS fiddling with my bag AND-"Then the doorbell rings. Yuu sighs and you look at her apologetically. Opening the door, it's Mako with her bag."H-hello, I decided to accept the position as a housekeeper.""Good! You can speak with Okada for the moment about your house and lodging. I'll also need to clear a room which is clean since you passively suck corruption which is a bad thing about this mansion as a hodgepodge of corruptive energy.""Hm? I like the atmosphere here though.""Well because that what is corruption energy is like....very liberating.""I see....""Anyway go to the second floor on the biggest door you can find. You can talk with your employer there."Mako nods and bows and excuses herself. You go back to Yuu who is sulking right now."So what is it Yuu?""...........""Yuu?""Anyone in your business right now Junko? Seems its a bad time talking to you.""No, to be honest this is the first time it happened to me.""Alright, So I WAS fiddling WITH MY BAG and-"Then Yuu phone rings. You raised your hand nothing to do it them and she begrudgingly huffs and mumbles about interruptions. Picking the phone up she answers with a grump."HELLO?""Hi! Yuu, this you mother. You see, were going to a vacation an-""ALRIGHTHAVEASAFETRIPBYE!"She ended the call and turned off her phone. She looks at you smiling that no one will bother anyone."SO I WAS fiddling WITH MY BAG AND-"Then your phone rings. She is now mad. Fishing your phone in your pocket you answer it with Kanna on the line."Senpai I-"But Yuu snatches it and turned off your phone. Then she resumes what she is saying."SO I WAS FIDDLING WITH MY BAG AND I FOUND SOMETHING THAT I COULD USE THE BAG AGAIN!""......is that it?""Yes.""Good. Can I go now?"She stomps her feet in rage. There is a lot to do this day. Then you hear some squealing and someone shouting. You probably need to resuce Mako from the menace called Marie.>Bag of randomness (5/5 remaining. Yuu discovered how to recharge the bag.)>Go to Okada's office>Resuce Mako from the clutches of evil Marie>See you mother off from their vacation>Check up with Kanna, Yuu interrupted the call>Listen to Yuu, she has probably more to say>Go somewhere (where?)>Do something (what?)>Train (what?)>Investigate (who?)>Write-in
>>3380722>Listen to Yuu, she has probably more to say>Afterwards, Resuce Mako from the clutches of evil Marie with Yuu
>>3380722>Listen to Yuu, she has probably more to say>Check up with Kanna, Yuu interrupted the call. It could be important.
>>3380833"Sorry Yuu, for some reason, this is the first time people called me for something.""Sorry for overreacting too. I guess I was pissed off for no reason.""I think I would be pissed if someone kept interrupting me. Breaks the mood you know.""I hope you know what you are saying Junko."You tilt your head in confusion while Yuu just shakes her head."Anyway, when I was inspecting the bag, I tried to look for something that I can use it again. Thinking about it, I pull out a coin, 2 cakes, a hot serving of curry and a handgun. And so if the idea of this bag is to get something, why not put it something too? And so I put the packet of curry back, a cake that I really want to eat but for the sake of experimentation, some coins of equal value fro what I got and I put back the handgun in the bag and viola! A shiny light exploded, well not really.....and I can get anything inside the bag....AGAIN! Although when I tried to put some coins less than what I got, it spits out like demanding to give something great or equal of value. I'm scared Junko....what if I pulled out a tank and I cannot pay it. It seems like this bag is something kinda like a loan shark.""Really?""Un! So please whatever you request, make it something that I can pay back. It may be great in the start but thinking about it in the long run, it seems scary from the prospect that something may have gone wrong if I didn't pay the bag that was used for......"(1/2)
>>3380897"Yuu, I want you to calm down first alright? No one will request that absurdly, but first....""EEEEEEEP!!!! HELP MEEEEEEEE!" Mako shouts......"We gonna rescue a fair maiden inside the house shall we?"Yuu nods and you run inside where you see Mako already in her underwear. She runs with unbelievable speed while Marie just skips and hops at Mako like a playful child. You give chase and gives Marie the flying kick that Yuu probably watches. Marie who is distracted at the underwear cladded Mako failed to notice you until its too late. The kick connects on the back of her head skidding on a soft carpeted floor. Marie face is something that you call a perverted dreamy smile. Hefting the unconscious predator, Yuu rushes to her soothing her that everything is alright."Sorry about that Mako, need someone to pacify her, she regulates her urges by this and seems it's out of control. Did you already speak with Okada up?""Yes we have. He speaks about the terms and conditions here inside the mansion. And also the do's and don'ts. I think I failed the first don'ts already.""What are you doing in Marie's room anyway?""Nothing, I was gonna clean your room first. Master Okada say that I have to skip Marie room or when she isn't there. I think I already know why.""Well at least you are safe for now. Keep up the good work Mako."She bows at you and you go to the room where you put Marie in bed dreamily groping something and murmurs your name. You shivered in fear. Thinking about it, Kanna called you earlier. Maybe you should go to her house."Junko?">Call Kanna>Go to Kanna's house>See you mother off from their vacation>Go to Okada's office>Go somewhere (where?)>Do something (what?)>Train (what?)>Investigate (who?)>Write-in
>>3380902>Call Kanna>If there is no answer round up the girls and go to her house.
>>3380987Picking up the phone, you open it and wait for the phone to start itself. Then you call Kanna."Hello! This is Kanna voicemail! Please call me later or give me a short message. Keep it brief though!""Kanna didn't pick up her phone. I don't want to say it but maybe something happened to her.""Let's go then Junko!"Calling Raye and Marie who is incapacitated from your kick earlier, you move to where Kanna house is. Looking at the outside seems to be normal. You then ring the doorbell. Nothing, fearing for the worst, all of you go grab the door but when you touch the doorknob, you yelp in pain not in heat but in extreme cold it burns. Yuu kick the door and and you see the interior of the house. The hallway is now an icy corridor and you go inside ignoring the sudden drop of temperature."Kanna? Kanna? Where are you? Girls! Search for Kanna"You check the living room which is slightly messed up. Broken vase and some manners of different kinds of things are sparwl around the floor. Kanna seems to throw it on Natalya when she was assaulting on her home. Then you hear Yuu shouts at you."JUNKO! KANNA IS HERE!!"You go to the bathroom where you see her encase in an ice on the tub. "Junko! We need to thaw this first and quick!">Bring the tub outside and use firestorm>Use Firestorm here. Time is of essence>Try to break the ice with the three of you>Write-in
>>3381087>"raye, have a firestorm ready for Kanna">Break the wall and haul the tub outside. Either kanna is already dead, or she can hold on for a little while
>>3381087>Ask Sakura what to do here>Raye, have firestorm ready for Kanna.>Girls keep your eyes open. If Natalya has been here she might be lying in ambush.Hopefully Kanan didn't just die so Yuu could bullshit at us.
>>3381087Supporting >>3381091 and >>3381102
>>3381102>Ask Sakura what to do hereOther than unfreeze her or turn her into a shadow? we don't need to ask her such simple question.
>>3381110Oh I was just trying to avoid springing some bs magical trap that we already know that Natalya is capable of creating.
>>3381113oh. well, that makes sense.
Well depending on what happens here we might want to pay a "friendly" visit to Sachiko's mother. We can possibly get some answers and work off some stress. Either Sachiko won't care or it might unnerve her when what's left of her mom comes crashing through her warehouse door.
Gonna eat for a bit. Be right back
>>3381269Apologizing to no one, you kick down the wall which made a hole in a wall. Yuu got what you are planning and starts to make a hole big enough to fit the tub outside the home."Raye.....go out and ready your firestorm. We need to thaw the ice."Raye quickly go out from the hole of the wall you destroyed and you move where you summon all of your strength to drag the tub out of the house. Yuu helps you on the other end to make it faster. You drop it where it has ample space where you can do the spell safely and then shout at Raye."NOW!!"Raye immediately released the spell. You cast your own firestorm to help thaw the ice faster. After a minute, you call Raye to stop. You see the tub is singed black and the ice is now a puddle of water. You see Kanna floating on a still cold water."Yuu, go back inside and look for towel. We gonna transport her to the hospital."Checking on her, she does't have any breathing. But her pulse is very weak. You don't know what to do."Junko, here it is!">Yuu, call the ambulance quick. Kanna is still holding on!>Go to the nearest hospital....which is 17km away from Kanna's house>You have Dr. Nagi phone number, ask for advice.>Write-in
>>3381269>Yuu, call the ambulance quick. Kanna is still holding on!>Raye, go and heat some water>Marie, help me find new clothes blankets and towels for her

>>3381318"Yuu call ambulance quick! And while at it, go get some new clothes and blankets and more towels. Raye, heat that tub with your firestorm and make warm water. GO NOW!"Immediately they go on their respective places and start whatever you're requesting. You call Okada for Marie to wake up and go to Kanna's house. Then you lie Kanna on the towel you put down on a soft grass outside the sun. Chins up and body straight, you discard the wet clothes of Kanna first. You fish out your phone frantically dialling the Doctors number. Good thing she picks up immediately."Doctor, it's an emergency. My friend got encased in a block of ice but we manage to thaw it. Now she is shivering from the intense cold and we need some first aid if you have one.""Give me the address and I'll send the ambulance. But I won't ask why would she be inside of a block of ice but you need to find something warm. She would have an severe pneumonia from the intense cold. Same from your friend happened last time she was here. Dry her first. I recommend to dry her trunks area first or she will experience shock. Also don't dunk her on the warm water of she will experience heart arrhythmia. Instead look for water bottles and put warm water on it. Wrap it on a cloth and softly apply it on her skin. Alright? If she has weak pulse or she doesn't breathe start CPR. C"My queen, the tub is now heated!""Go get some bottle, anything will do!"Looking for Kanna's body who is now start to shiver from the intense cold. You then carry her on the tub. She starts to gasp for more breaths."Kanna, wake up. Wake up please."Yuu returns with clothes and many towels. "Yuu, help Raye look for any plastic bottles and fill it with warm water. Then wrap it with the towels you got and softly apply it on her skin."You go to where Kanna is and wrap her body with towels. You start doing CRP but you don't know how. Then you hear ambulance sirens near and you go outside to see where you flag them where you are right now. They immediately go down the vehicle and tell the paramedics about what happened to Kanna minus the encased in a block of ice. They nod and gave her fist aid. After 5 agonizing minutes, Kanna starts breathing albeit labored. The paramedics signal it that she is ready to be transported to the hospital. You watch them hastily carry the stretcher to the ambulance and you make Yuu come with them......in case of emergency. The ambulance then runs to the nearest hospital to help Kanna."My queen, what shall we do?">Let's visit someone's home. I think she won't mind.>Let's go home. We have warehouse or two to visit.>Write-in

>>3381346hmmm...what if we go with arc instead?
>>3381348Arc will try to "kill" us again. We have no in character reason to expect her to help. Unless it is some sort of desperation pitch.
>>3381340>>Let's visit someone's home. I think she won't mind.
>>3381349well, just keep in mind that"visiting someone" is the expected move, or at least more expected than trying to find nat's warehouse. After all, we "know" where sashiko lives and is logical to try to retaliate against her right now.

You are going to personally wring her neck the next time you see her. You walk to where Sachiko house is located....................*??????*"Hey Sa-chan, I already iced that girl over there.

For now we are safe.""Thanks."Going to the doorbell, you press the button and wait. Then someone came out."Oh! Are you the attorney that will take care of my newbly bought house? Mrs. Yumegawa said that she will send some attorney to settle the payment. But aren't you too young to be one?"You look at Marie and Raye.

>>3381466You start to run as fast as you could to the airport. You made Marie and Raye go on first on the airport so they can help search along with the shadowshades that Okada summoned. The three of you also don a disguise to not stick out but considering how fast are you running, you will pick up a lot of attention. But who cares when your mother is probably in danger. Dialling your phone to call your mother, it picks up after several rings.""The number you have dialled is either unattended or out of coverage area. Please try your call later."Shoot.

She look at the names and the seats they are having and give some instructions where to sit. The she saw the names of their target. Both of them are speaking happily. Something about too easy. She smiled at the two female passengers and guide them to their seats. After all passengers are boarded she walks away and gets her walkie talkie."Target is inside. I also primed something inside.

"Did you found something."The shadowspectre shakes her head."Where is Marie and Raye."It points you to where they are. You walk briskly where you can see Marie and Raye already arguing on a security officer."But sir this is important, we need to meet her.""Ma'am, the plane is now on the runway. We cannot cancel the flight because of your selfish request. Now please go out or we will haul you out."Damn it you are too late. Going to where the girls are, there is a muffled explosion. The ground shakes and you hear shouts. Fearing for the worst, you go to the glass and see the plane going down to the sea where it barely takes off and crashes. You can only stare at the plane and shed a single tear in your eyes."M-mother......"See you tomorrow and thanks for reading.
>>3381482>going down to the sea where it barely takes off and crashes. Ironically that’s the most survivable type. Depending on how the plane came apart. Not as high of a risk of being trapped in the burning fuselage. Natalya should have waited for the plane to hit cruising altitude. There would have been nothing left of the plane. Hope mom squad packed those swimsuits but I’m the resident pessimist. curious if this was a save Kanna or save Mom type thing.
>>3381087I keep on falling asleep at sane hours of the night..>>3381391Manipulate memories, turn formerly normal person (or pilot) into secret terrorist.
So to sum things up:We accidentally did the same thing to Kanna that was done to us and started this whole quest.Our parents might be dead, and if they aren't then we're gonna get ambushed when we run out to rescue them. This depends on if Nat and Sachiko weren't stupid enough to not be watching remotely instead of being the highly visible sole light when or resulting corruption bloom blankets everything nearby for miles.If we don't immediately start a rescue effort (and go viral when magic suddenly shows up since even if the powers might be invisible, us shapeshifting and the interaction of everything with the magic is. Eg Raye flying. Us holding people up on invisible shields or cutting open the fuselage with an invisible claymore, or 50 foot leaps. ) then Junko is about to go full queen of darkness on the city.Somehow I doubt Sachiko thought through how good an idea Junko having no fucks left to give is when she's a shadow of wrath.I'm personally for us actually sitting down and making our army after the rescue. If creating/converting shadows out of people uses our supply, then we leech some more from Mako's bottomless well. Just pounce on her with an unending horde.
>>3381608>Manipulate memoriesNatalya was there and probably planted a bomb on one of the engines.>muffled explosion....going down to the sea where it barely takes off and crashesShe probably blew one of the engines causing the plane to have insufficient thrust to reach a safe take off speed. The plane would wind up gliding, then hitting the water belly side down and depending on speed skid (planes are buoyant, kind of have to be to fly) to a stop or start to fragment. If the plane stays mostly together it's one of the safest ways to crash a plane. See the miracle on the Hudson incident. If you don't have the speed to kill everyone on impact, what kill in plane crashes is the resulting fire and smoke inhalation from burning jet fuel. Natalya took that part out of the equation by making a spark much harder once the fuel tanks lose integrity(would start leaking from around the wings/where the engines where, the part covered in water) She could have done more damage parking a truck on the runway.>>3381635Kanna still has a chance. She is in bad shape but we got her in time.Yeah kind of hard to have a masquerade when the ballroom is on fire. So I'm also down for a desperate rescue attempt. Junko would do it even if it is just to retrieve the bodies for shadow-ication. As much as I dislike Mom squad, it's still the in character thing to do. . Plus you left out with no pulse Junko might not have to breathe anymore, so she could dive if necessary. Okada happens to keep the chopper there from my understanding and we have a good number of shadows that could shapeshift into rescue personnel and commandeer a boat. Sachiko seems to be going after Arc next so we have the breathing room. Honestly, it seems like she is counting on turning Junko and Yuu into mindless shadows to hunt and that isn't going to work so hot. So a rough idea would be>Call Okada to send two shadows to the helicopter and the rest off as first responders to commandeer a boat Ask where the mom's seats were on the plane.>Get the girls in the air especially Marie for her vision abilities. Scan for the plane and moms. If the plane is together she is on overwatch.>Junko and Raye go to or dive around the fuselage and cut the moms out. Raye flies them back to the helicopter. Get the moms to the hospital or back to the mansion depending on degree of injury.>We were a civilian plane so we don't have room for everyone. The shadows take the next most injured.>Use Dr. Nagi's help to fake mom squads death if necessary or go back to the mansion and shadow time, if things went badly.
>>3381646>Natalya was there and probably planted a bomb on one of the engines.That was when I first woke up, started catching up, and saw 44 unread replies in the thread. Kind of amazing that she fucked up so hard. If we didn't see them gloating about their supposed spectacular plane crash I'd think the whole thing is a trap for a secondary and larger bomb. I'm assuming that the idiots are trying to cover their tracks instead of doing the smart thing and just leaving the city/area to set up shop elsewhere. Or that implies that they "can't leave because they have something in the city they need/use or look for? Or the city itself is special? Since they can't assume that we'd know what they were planning, Maybe this plane crash was a distraction to prevent us from interfering when they take down Arc? They got shanked/blindsided once and they don't want it to happen again. If so then they probably wont attack us during the rescue since Arc is going to notice everyone in the crazy yandere meido cafe watching viral videos showing that magical girls really exist. It's just a super bad matchup for them too even if we get tired since the passengers will be leaking corruption as a battery for us.>Kanna still has a chance. She is in bad shape but we got her in time. Yeah, bad wording on my part to imply she's already dead. The implications of accidentally leaving Kanna to die are still gonna do a number on Junko when things calm down enough for it to click.>>3381646>So a rough idea would be I was personally thinking that >Marie gets to a control (or generally high) tower to be lookout since MGs don't have trouble just jumping up that high. She also doubles as a lookout for survivors or shark/etc related dangers.>Raye makes a land bridge (mayb even a dock/harbour?) and we shuffle people out via ice boats/bergs if her control is that good and there aren't rafts onboard. I was considering making land rise up from under the plane, but bodies might be scattered around and get smashed by the rising earth if they were thrown out of the plan. I also don't know the general oceanic topography they have as it could vary between extremes like miles of shallow water and an instant several mile cliff.Accidentally slicing people up with coral doesn't seem like my idea of a good plan either.>If Yuu can summon any healing magic in whatever state she's in, she starts using it on survivors just enough to keep them alive. She should have some experience at it even if it's only healing whatever partner she used to get paired up with to hide her MG activities from her mom.>Am I right about us theoretically being able to move the shields? We start spamming shields to lift people/debris out of the way.>I'm assuming that a bunch of people are scared. We can actually sense that and use it to locate the living. >Transport people to the emergency services that arrived and roll out.There's probably other stuff but I think that would be a different voting round.
>>3381482well, now that weird magical group will come in big numbers, because what a BIG coincidence that the most corrupted city has a plane crash after one of their agent's location was compromised.>>3381635well, Natalya was stupid enough to be recorded in multiple cameras and seen by multiple people. Sashiko might be able to erase memories, but she can't do that to records and video. specially after all of this gets uploaded to youtube, facebook, twitter, and backed up by conspiracy nuts(which basically is happening ins this very moment). I mean, she could have done that thee years ago to three isolated targets, but not now with what basically is an international incident.The people in this city might be corrupt and ignorant idiots, but the rest of the world isn't.>>3381646>So a rough idea would be[...]The best thing we can do right now is to protect the rescue ships from natalya and sashiko because it seems like they are desperate and stupid enough to assault the plane on open light. Us going in there will only complicate things because we don't know the proper way to rescue people.>>3381683>Maybe this plane crash was a distraction to prevent us from interfering when they take down Arc?Arc will come to investigate the crash, its the most logical option from the organization and her. Also, i don't think that the two of them will be able to down her. Remember that she can also teleport in a short range.Honestly, i don't know the purpose of this attack or how they managed to know that the moms were flying out. it was the most guarded secret we had. It won't stop us at all, it will only make us madder and now the eyes of the world and whatever other magical organizations are here.This is just plain villian stupidity.>Sachiko seems to be going after Arc next so weShe wouldn't even know where to start. Going for kanna should be the most logical option, but she wanted to leave a message instead, and now she effectively lost her track.
>>3381747>*????*"So did the two has a chance to survive?""Who knows, but I put the thing under the seat before I personally led them to their seat of death......or demise.""I can't believe that you have to act like some kind of sales lady to lure them out.""It was easy. But stalking them was the hard part. I'm just lucky to see them going home. It's only a matter of time stalking them when they gone out and do some shopping. In fact I have to thank lady fortune. But maybe not, I didn't put my signature tracker on them but I can smell them. They have a unique smell you know? Then again I should have put my tracker on them just to make sure.""Well that is because they have been exposed to our energies. Also they will notice if you put one. Better to make them think it's safe but it's too late for them aren't they? But I won't ask about it. It would buy us some time to ready everything. Hopefully that ice bitch shadow won't show up the third time.""Wrecked up my warehouse huh....it's not like I own it anyway.""Look forward, here she comes.""Showtime then......"
Wait why did I link someone...oh well whatever.>>3381498>SpoilersMaybe they have a different view of a "beautiful accident"
Well, since we don't have any moral chains left(other than Yuu, and yuu isn't on her best right now), I say that we fulfill the prophesy and crash this party with no survivors.>We contact arc through Yuu and ask/beg her to help us.>When she tells us "no"(because that's how the characters work here) we raid all the prisons and yakuzas hideouts we can and convert everyone into a shadow.>Then we lead a manhunt in the city. No pity, no mercy. they go down this very day.>Then we disappear and make our lives in some other secluded place.
>>3381837>bomb under the seat. here is hoping mom squad was being their usually unruly selves. >>3381905Contacting arc through Yuu is a good idea if we knew how.
>>3381912we know where she lives. Its just a matter of waiting for her to return to sleep and then we knock on her front door.If arc answers and agrees to help us, she will unknowingly save the city from being turned into sodom and gomorrah
>>3381837>.And then they switched seats with somebody on the plane. (do people still do that?)>well, Natalya was stupid enough to be recorded in multiple cameras and seen by multiple people.I must have missed that unless our firefight with her had more people awake and able to see/record what happened than I initially thought. (0)>>3381905Either that or Yuu gets all the attention since she's the last chain left. Would be nice if Marie was the one to try to stop it this time for some variety and slight redemption. Yuu also got half a year's worth of corruption sucked out of her earlier so she's gonna be a bit slower to actually turn shadow than she was in previous cases even if it's still going to hit her hard.I'm thinking this is the moment the city gets shrouded in darkness and the villains realize just how hard they fucked up if my "nightlight theory" kicks in.(if the whole place is covered in darkness then the location of any nearby light gets extremely obvious. It should be about the time that the Yakuza are coming back in since they were just trying to lay low>>3381920We know where her training warehouse and storage area is. We just assumed it's where she lives. Waiting for her there would give time for Sachiko to ambush her at whatever part time job she ends up with.
>>3381944>And then they switched seats with somebody on the plane. (do people still do that?)If the seats weren't marked(which is the only option), they can do so.>I must have missed that unless our firefight with her had more people awake and able to see/record what happened than I initially thought. Not there, but she showed her face in an international airport. Those places are one of the most secure and watched facilities in the world in order to avoid what happened right now. Right now there are people scrambling to look at cameras, recordings and such. And they will find one incredibly easy to recognize platinum blonde foreigner that happened to work as an attendant for less than a day. Given how facial recognition works right now, this can create an international incident with russia.
>*meanwhile at the hospital....*"Is she going to be okay doctor?""Yes, not to worry. Her body temperature is going to be normal in a couple of hours and she would need rest for at least 3 days week at most. Her body would be numb at first but as long as we maintain room temperature, she would be alright.""Thank you for saving my friend Doc.""Don't mention it. I'm glad that girl did her best to do first aid and called me. Anyway I mu-"Then the door opens up. The nurse who is out of breath speaks...."Doctor, we need you.....to standby..... accident at airport......plane crash....may need more staff.""Alright, let's go...."Wait what do you mean plane crash?""Sorry girl, but we need to attend on upcoming patient, please wait here and stay with your friend and call me if anything happens.""B-but my mother is probably there!""Give me the name and we'll see if she is one of them."Yuu gives her the complete name and they both go out the room. Yuu slowly walks on Kanna side and grip her hand."Mother......I'm sorry......please be safe."Yuu buries her face on the sheets as her muffled sniffs and cries echoes the white sterile room where Kanna sleeps and still recovering.
>>3381944>Waiting for her there would give time for Sachiko to ambush her at whatever part time job she ends up with.we literally have no other way to find her other than create some chaos and hope she will answer.
>>3381962The massive corruption spike blotting out the sun should do nicely.>>3381960Wait a second,, Aren't Kanna's parents trying to go on vacation too? They might be on the plan as well.
>>3381965>The massive corruption spike blotting out the sun should do nicely.It might work, but its also a beacon for natalya and sahiko.>Aren't Kanna's parents trying to go on vacation too?their plans got postponed by two weeks.
>>3381965Oh yeah they were. Sachiko really is trying to still turn everyone into shadows.
>>3381975>their plans got postponed by two weeks.Oh yeah that's right, but what happened to Kanna's brother and family. Hopefully they were out during the attack.
>>3382004Oh. they are turbofucked.
>>3382004>ParentsProbably in work>BrotherI wonder..... maybe Kanna can answer that.
>>3382027>I wonder.That's probably not a good sign.Planning on running around normal time?
>>3381957>If the seats weren't marked(which is the only option), they can do so.Geeze. Airlines actually crack down on that now? You used to be able to pick whatever seat you felt like if the plane wasn't too packed or the other person was ok with switching. (been a while since I was on a plane that wasn't packed)
>>3382076Well, you can change places if the other person agrees, but usually the plane tickets are always numbered to avoid issues with overcrowding and in theory makes it easier and faster to load up all the passengers.Only the really cheap ones don't do so.
>>33820744 hours from now I'll run
>>3382113Give me some time to write since I just came home. Anyway writing....
>>3382724You watch the accident on a glass window of the airport. The officials are also looking at the accident. Then he face both Marie and Raye."Did you say your mother is in the airplane?"They didn't answer."This is very suspicious, you must know what is happening on that plane."He reaches his radio and ask for more security about two suspicious individual but Marie knocked her out and both of them run to the nearest bathroom. You're still standing on the window you mouth agape and cannot fathom the happening in front of you.She really did it. That bitch. Junko, I know what you are feeling right now but you need to calm down and exit the building......peacefully. We don't want you to accidentally release you powers in this public place. Alright? Please listen to me.And like in autopilot. You turn around and walk solemnly, your phone vibrates but you ignored it. Eventually, Marie and Raye regrouped on you with Marie acting as a scout in case Natalya or Sachiko is around and Raye sticking close to you. You walk and walk and walk and walk. Marie then call you out."Junko? We have been walking for an hour now? Are you alright?"Then something snaps...."Alright? Heh....hehehe.....Am I alright? Say Marie? What if I should kill you right here and now. Can I say "Are you alright?" in your state?""J-Junko, please you're not yourself.""I'm already not myself since I am resurrected Marie, look at me."Already half of your body is now consumed by darkness. Half of your hair are like tentacles lashing in the air trying to grab something. Damn it I can't control it. If I had an essence....no it's still no use. This is too powerful."Raye, can we do something to Junko?"Raye shakes her head. But then an idea strikes her."Why not call Yuu? She may calm Junko down.""RIGHT! You're a genius Raye."Picking up the phone, you dial Yuu's number...............................You are Yuu Mitsukoshi, you have been guarding Kanna along with the two newly arrived shadowspectre probably from Junko. Then your phone vibrates. Seeing the caller was Marie, you rush out of the hospital to pick up the call leaving the guarding to the shadow which both of them nodded."Hello Marie?""Junko is in trouble, can you calm her down?""What is happening?""Something happened and please.....before something bad is happening.""A-alright....I'll be there. Where are you now?"Marie gives you the address of where they are now and you rushed to were your best friend is. Upon arriving to the place, you see a massive concentration of corruption.You try to move closer but it's no use. This is very heavy."Yuu, please help Junko.....">Junko is now in super saiyan mode........well not really but you know the gist. What does Yuu do in this situation?>Call her out just like she did to you?>Ask Marie/Raye about the situation. Maybe they can help you think how to approach Junko.>Maybe your bag can help>Write-in
>>3382765Sachiko made a major mistake here. Junko's wrath isn't the hot blooded unthinking sort of wrath she's hoping for to make her an easy target. It's the cold hearted type where she just silently keeps on bashing their head in with a rock. Eg Junko x Rock-chanIf she just released her corruption everywhere would that actually put her in better shape right now since it wouldn't all be inside her body?>Call Junko out>Junko, Stop! I don't want to lose you too!I'm kind of at a loss on our responses right now. I hope that was decent enough?
>>3382804It's alright, I can make responses too. I mean what kind of friend who saved her not do the same?
>>3382765>Maybe your bag can help>Write-in:>"Junko, if you wouldn't let me become a shadow, you must keep control of yourself now. No matter what happens I'm hear for you and so are Mari and Rei. Right, girls?">Hug Junko>"Do you need me to repeat all the embarrassing stuff I said at the docks--how much I need you. How I want to be with you forever. How I love you. The Junko I love would never give up hope, not now, not ever, no matter how bad it gets. Even if I lose everything it would still be okay if I have you and you have me forever.">Kiss the normal half of Junko's forehead.>"I think I can guess what happened. I heard at the hospital. Junko I'm alone now and I need you. Mari and Rei need you. Kanna especially needs you. Junko, I need you back. Please don't give up. I love you and you would never let me do the same."
>>3382765Supporting >>3382804 and >>3382827
>>3382827I’m not sure I trust the bag like that.if I were to use the bag, I would try to negotiate with it instead and give a payment for the item wanted ahead of time since it can apparently speak. That’s assuming we aren’t going into darker territory and feeding Sackiko or Natalya to the bag as payment for a light core.
>>3382908>feeding Sackiko or Natalya to the bagFuck yes.
>>3382908 I was planning on using the real estate lawyer, the payment between them, and the sick parents to feed sachiko's mother to it or turn the mom into a shadow/bomb if that didn't work out. Still need hope essences for things and I have an experiment in mind.
>>3382804>>3382827>>3382866Writing....>>3382908>Yuu: Get inside the fucking bag Sachikokeks
>>3382921the thing is that we don't have a real equivalent to a hope core. Unless we feed it with magical girls, we won't get one in return.
>>3382929 a life is worth a life, considering what we might use it on and we could find plenty of shitheads if this turns out to be something like a FMA philosopher's stone and we need lots of lives
>>3382950problem is that a hope core isn't the equivalent to a life. I'd say the core is worth more. Maybe we could feed it lots of corruption instead? After all the hope cores are created from a big shadow
>>3382928You start to inch closer and closer to Junko, the wind starts to pick up around her."Junko! Please listen to me!"The black aura around Junko slowly envelopes her whole body. The sudden pressure of pure corruption makes your body starts to push you out."Junko! Please stop.

Don't be angry at the world, instead direct it to Sachiko. The one who did this!"Then Junko in her fit of rage, shout. A dark pillar of light is seen high above the sky."JUNKO!!">Roll1d100-15 for the power of friendship.....and hugs.

>>3383069As you inch closer, the wind blows up again that makes you skid backward. But Marie and Raye step in front of you."Let us handle this. We are already corrupted anyway." Marie says...."Yuu, our queen shining light is you. Let's save her together.""Thank girls. Let's go.....and save Junko."And so the three of you walk. Raye cast Corruptive shield on Marie and hers making their movement a lot easier at it flows like water onto them. You hide behind the two people until Raye and Marie are just only a hand reach."Damn it!! We can't come closer.""Keep it up Raye! We can do it.""Is....is this only far we can go?""What do you mean?"Mako stands beside you like nothing is happening."Wow.....talk about ruining the mood." Marie snarks."So what should I do?""Well, we need to get close to Junko.""Oh her? Wait a moment."Mako comes closer to Junko and touched her shoulder. Then she carried her having difficulties as she is carrying her upright like some kind of statue. Then she pass it onto Yuu."Here. Give her a lots of hugs alright? Now I still need to weed out the backyard."Then Mako walks away and rides the car that Okada probably brought. Marie and Raye just shrugs."Junko....please wake up.".....................................Junko, this isn't a time to mope.>"......why bother anyway."Are you really that shallow? To give up that easily? Come on! Look, your friend are still waiting for you. I may don't have one right now so you could say that consider yourself lucky. Please......go back to them.You look at the light, Yuu, Marie and Raye are shaking you awake.">"Wait, I am standing earlier right?"Oh....uhm....things got awkward and Mako just hauled you like a sack and prop you onto Yuu's lap.>"............."Are you going back now?>"........yes."Good, because we have a revenge to do.The aura settles down around your body and you slowly wake up. You see Yuu in tears. Marie and Raye sit themselves exhausted. You look at Yuu and wipe her tears away."Come on, you're ugly when you cry you know.""Shut up! You still doing stupid things you know.""Guess we are both stupid then."Both of you hug at each other. Then a cough from Marie"As much as I want to reaffirm you friendship, we have a girl to hunt.""Right....."You stand up and the four of you are ready to move.>Let's go to hospital first Kanna may be wake up and ask what happened to her>Let's go to Okada and see what is the situation>Let's go to the plane crash and see if our mothers are there.....hopefully>Write-in
>>3383096>Write in:>Call Okada and see what the situation is. Make sure he triples the guard on Kanna. Ask him about the crash.>Go to the plane crash and see if our mothers are there....hopefully even if it's bad use the helicopter to retrieve the bodies and bring them back to the mansion.
>>3383096>Call Okada.>Tell me when they find our moms.>Go to the hospital. Kanna may be wake up and ask what happened to her
>>3383096>Go to the hospital to make sure they don't finish off Kanna when they realize that she's alive. If we really were wandering around for an hour then the hospitals should have taken people from the crash over there.>Call Okada We need lists of acceptable targets to build/convert an army with. They wanted a queen of darkness. They're getting a queen of darkness.I'm half considering an actual blockade to make sure they can't run.
>>3383096>Call Okada>Ask about the location of our moms.>if they are still there have the shadowspecteres get them. >head to the hospital. Check Kanna the patients there and the morgue.
>>3383096Sorry I messed up the format again.
>>3383277"Let's go to the hospital. Kanna is probably in danger there."The three of them agree with you and go to the hospital. Arriving at the entrance where a sudden influx of people who are unconscious and has different kinds of injury from fractures, blunt wounds and different kinds of body cuts bleeding from the severity of impact of the plane. "Girls, go to Kanna's room, I have to call Okada."They immediately move in where they go to Kanna, you fish out your phone and call."Okada?""My queen? Thank god you're safe. I was worried when I detected your energy level too high. I sent Mako to stabilize you. She did a wonderful job then.""Y-yeah. So......what happened to the mothers?""Sorry my queen, I'm not the one who gave the tickets to their vacation. It seems that someone might have given them. I didn't expect this to happen as I can only express my apologies and beg for you mercy to spare me.""We'll get on that. So.......did you find them?""We're still searching. I will update you when we rescued everyone. Currently half of the passengers are now rescued. It will be a matter of time to all of them to be found.""Please Okada......please find them.....in whatever state they have been.""I will try my queen. That is what I can say. I can't make promises."You sigh, at least he is willing to try. But that is not enough...."Don't try, do it! Call me if you found them."You ended the call and go inside. You asked where Kanna room is and the nurse gave you the room number. Going to where Kanna recovers you see the girls already at the bedside. Kanna is still asleep. The Shadowshades are now guarding the windows for any unsavory people hanging around. Then Yuu speaks...."Junko, she's still has a fever. The doctor says that she will start to recover after three days or at week the most. I don't know if we can wait for Kanna to recover but Sachiko is out there doing whatever her next move is. We can't afford to make her run away from what is happening right now.""I got you Yuu, but we need to plan. We don't want to get her caught out on her plans.....whatever they may be."(1/2)
>>3383339The room is silent."Maybe.....being a queen of shadows right now isn't a bad idea at all.""Huh? What do you mean?"Marie then stands up."Junko, do you even know what you are saying?""Yes, I do Marie.""Wait Marie, what does she mean?" Yuu inquires."My uncle.......have a vision. That one day, the city will be covered in darkness. All of us will be corrupted and stand beside her as an army who will wage war. It could be for Sachiko, it could be the world. But one thing is for sure. The whole country will be blanketed from the intense darkness and no one will stop her."And then Raye adds."And all of the shadow will grovel and bow on their feet as the queen returns to guide us all. And we awaits her commands."Both of them kneel on one knee and bowed at you. You stand up. The shadowspectre who is also watching the windows also bows at you. Yuu watch in fear as you face her with determination in your face."Yuu, will you go with me......one last time?""Of course....do I need to say it again?" She smirks."Then......">Let's go find Sachiko....she will pay for her crimes.>Let's go back to mansion. Okada and Mako will be our force multiplier.>BECOME ONE OF US YUU....>Write-in

Probably gonna catch all of those rapists that go after Mako too while we're at it.
>>3383341>BECOME ONE OF US YUU....
We know where Arc's warehouse is, so we could probably have somebody/thing sent to keep tabs on her so that we can react to her being ambushed now that I think of it?
>>3383408We could have some shadows stake it out, but that’s were she trains not where she lives. it might just be the time but didn’t Arc say the clothes we ruined weren’t hers? What the heck was the objective we meddled in?
>>3383412Probably just some fashionable Japanese outfits or cosplay. Her boss might be a Ouiaboux. I'm not sure why Arc couldn't just purify the clothes though?
>>3383412I'm confused but, It seems like yuuki hit on Natalya's warehouse, but at the same time we struck Arc's warehouse
>>3383424It could have to do with the “smell thing” Natalya mentioned.
>>338434"Let's try to figure out what happened to our mom's. For better or worse.""Yeah....let's.""Girls, stand up. The two of you will guard Kanna.""Yes my queen." Both Marie and Raye replies."Yuu, let's go."And so you go where the place where the scene of accident happened................Arriving at the bay area is hard as different media outlets are covering the happenings. Various gawkers and bystanders watch in attention on what could be a rare happening in their eyes. The boat ferries some who are safely rescued and some are carried via stretchers. Most of them covered their faces as the coldness of the sea where the plane crash can be seen not far away from where you are standing. It could be more or less 3-5 km away from where you stand."Let's go Junko.""Can you shapeshift Yuu?""No."Then you shapeshift yourself as a paramedic similar to the ones who are receiving patients and moving them on a mobile tent where they are resting from the shock of the accident. You then grab Yuu and drop down the building. Pushing to the crowd as you refuse the media with their interviews about the updates of what is happening, you eventually arrive at the dock where you see several people inside the tent. Both of you go to the tent first and look for your mother as well as Yuu. ...................>*?????**ghack*Arc flown out from the pillar breaking it as you where pushed by an icy bat. You were ambushed by these two witches. Seems your starting being rusty."Well, this was easy.""Shut it. We need to finish her before more of her come."You cough blood out. You stare at them menacingly."Kill me or many will come to haul your ass. Especially you Natalya." *hurk*Your wetched a little bit as your stomack was kicked. "Well she speaks the truth. How about we ice her and drop her in the middle of the river. No one will notice about her for a week before they send a new one.""Nice idea. We won't be staying that much anyway."Sachiko and Natalya face Arc who is trying to do something.Goodbye sister......She was immediately frozen by a block of ice. Natalya starts to push the block and down into the river."Won't that ice melt in the river?""Melt? Don't underestimate the russian ice. Because russian ice will ice you first.""...........""Fine, I forgot you don't appreciate puns."Both of them walks away moving to their next plan.(1/2)
>>3383477.................You have searched everywhere and double checked. You asked the shadowspectre rescuers about your mother and they shake their heads. It's impossible. The only thing they would be gone is either they we're blown into nothingness or disintegrated. You rendezvous with Yuu as she also shakes her head."J-Junko, please tell me you find them."You shake their head."S-should we go to the morgue?""The shadows says that there was no death and all were accounted for.....except the two passengers.""Please.....don't tell me."You hang your head trying to stifle your tears. Yuu starts to cry and hugs you. You do the same. You hope that whenever they are......they are happy.>Let's go home for now Yuu. We're going to speak to Okada, he could give us some information.>Let's go to the crash site. We could find them there>Let's avenge them Yuu, let's find Sachiko and Natalya>Write-in
>>3383477>How about we ice her and drop her in the middle of the river.Ice floats. What are they doing? they are asking for us to find her>>3383485>Let's go to the crash site. We could find them there
>>3383488Magical anime bullshit. Don't ask.
>>3383485>Let's go to the crash site. We could find them there
>>3383485>Let's go to the crash site. We could find them there>>3383488>What are they doing? It makes my head hurt. Anime logic completely disintegrates when thrown into any semi realistic scenario. At least we'll find her. eventually. Specially because the rivers end up at the sea.
>>3383499I know. It makes my head hurt too. But it could be easy to write because it's bullshit. And anime bullshit happens. I mean Magical Girls already are breaking the laws of physics. What can a normal block of ice which would float in the water would even do when the girl say that it will definitely sink.Natalya would.
>>3383510I'm running on the logic that they are kids and aren't really thinking about this stuff. They have shit tons of magical power but no common sense of the mundane world and little finesse with the magic beyond brute force. Sachiko even uses her mind magic as if it were a hammer. Think Kayanth El-Melloi Archibald out of Fate Zero with the added negative of youth but hey your the QM.
>>3383510well, one thing is to have anime physics, which is expected in every superhuman quest, and the other is to have anime logic.Anime logic breaks hard the suspension of disbelief, for example with Mako. Her life is so shitty, so dark and so "worse than yours", that it becomes a joke and you can't take it seriously. Worst of all is that since the players are used to "normal" logic and your characters are usually tied to it, you expect that all the other characters have to abide to the same rules, but that's not true.If you want to see one quest that does anime logic well, check mecha space pirate quest. Many if not all of the characters there are anime archetypes and have their actions based on anime logic, but said logic is tested against the "real world"they live on, with expected (and sometimes unexpected) consequences.Its a heavy-ish read, but not only is really fun, but the examples to what i said appear rather quickhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Mecha%20Space%20Pirate%20Quest
For Sachiko I'm reminded of someone's green text on /tg/ about a campaign villain: A high charisma, High wisdom, but low intelligence drow matriarch. It seems like she had schemes within in schemes but was actually just going with the flow and was flying by the seat of her pants over the entire campaign. She was just able to really exploit the actions of others around her to get her way. I think Sachiko is like this. Someone put her up to her current course of action and explained how easy it is for magical girls to fall to despair. Otherwise she has been winging it. Natalya on the other hand probably has a clean up crew when she is used as a government asset. She is the hammer. Granted personally I would put more stock in some schmuck with a container full of radioactive isotopes and the keys to your apartment but you can't solve every problem with polonium.
>>3383531I can imagine the cleanup crew.they are basically soldiers that are tasked to break all the ice cubes she makes and throws down the nearest body of water. Basically natalya freezes them and the crew kills them for good.
>>3383541Nyet comrade, why throw away the magical ice when you can use it to chill the bottle of vodka or kvass. See smart. The bits of western spy just make it better.
>>3383525"Let's go to the crash site. We could find them there. I'll find some clothes for you so you can pass as a rescuer.""All right."Calling a Shadowspectre, it gave you another set of clothes that Yuu can wear. She purified the clothes first before she wear them. Then you go to a separate boat where a shadow is driving into where the crash site is."Are you sure that is everyone?"The shadow nods. But you will try. You eventually arrive at the crash site where half of the plane is already slowly sinking. Yuu immediately dives down to look for them and you do the same.>*10 minutes passed*"Yuu did you find them?""No, but we'll keep searching.">*30 minutes passed*"Yuu try below deck, I haven't search there.""Got it!">*45 minutes passed*You are starting to be exhausted but you will search every nook and cranny. Then Yuu resurface."I found something. Help me!"You both dive and into the deep where a door was opened. Probably Yuu did it. And so both of you go in. Then you see something. A hand. You look at Yuu which she nod. You try to push whatever that was blocking. And Yuu pulls the hand that was sticking out. Then Yuu pulls it all out to see..........................Marie and Raye are reading something courtesy from the shadowspectre to fetch some books for them to have some time to kill when Kanna starts to stir. Marie noticed about Kanna murmurs."W-wa......water. Please.....""Quick! Give us water now!"The shadowspectre nods and runs out of the room."Kanna, please wait we're getting water for you to drink."Touching her head. It burns. Both physically and literally. You can't really gauge how hot her fever is without burning your skin. You call the doctor through the speaker and they will send as soon as they are available. Then the shadow returns with a pitcher of water. You give Yuu a glass of water for her to drink. Then she starts to speak."M-my brother.....is in danger......please......save.....him."Then she sleeps again................................You haul yourself out of the water. What you got was a life size mannequin. You and Yuu are both dejected on a false hope that you expected."They're....really gone huh.""I.....I don't know.""I....didn't even properly said goodbye to my mother.""I haven't called my mother Yuu.....""Junko.....""Yuu.......">Go somewhere (where?)>Do something (what?)>Train (what?)>Investigate (who?)>Write-in

>>3383550>>3383552>>3383554>>3383556Writing....also last update of the day.
>>3383580"Yuu......""Yes?""I'm all alone now."Your eyes moisten as you stop yourself to cry. But your feelings can't stop it. And you cry. You cry a lot. Yuu hugs you and she starts to cry too. The cries of both of you can probably be heard on the docks. But you don't care. Your only mother. The one that raised you and take care of you.....gone."Motheeeeeeeeer...........""Shhhh! There there Junko, I know it's hard but I'm still here okay? As long as I'm here, you're not alone. Alright?"You pour your hearts out as you cry away your grief and sorrow.Junko....sorry to interrupt but, remember when I said to let the corruption leave itself? If you scan maybe you will find something.You break your hug with Yuu as you dry your own tears. You shakily stand up almost stumbling. Yuu catches you and helps you to stand up. With one last ping......."Wait what?""Hm? Did something happened Junko?""They.....aren't here.""What do you mean?""They're.......".........................>*some highway in the city*"I can't believe we have to go back to the city just because you forgot to buy yourself a swimsuit Kurosaki-san.""I have to dress to impress you know? I am confident with my body despite with my age.""Yeah, thanks to you......"Various cars, trucks, taxis and different kinds of cars are now honking at each other."We're stuck at traffic.""........Sorry."See you tomorrow everyone.
>>3383584Never change, Mom squad. Thanks for running QM.
>>3383591I hope that somebody simply forgot to file paperwork about them changing to a later flight. That's still two dead people that the moms are gonna be horrified at the deaths of if it wasn't a paperwork mixup.I wonder what us crawling about for that hour looked like to mundane people. People generally can't see magical stuff unless they're looking hard but some distraught girl weeping and listlessly walking the streets after a plane crash is sure to attract attention. Even if they don't directly see something then maybe just a general aura?Arc's bosses can also hear her remotely without the use of a phone independently of Arc's will. Those idiots just confessed on tape. I hope Arc has some sort of emergency teleport. If she's supposed to be one of the top agents in even a small organization she has to have something up her sleeve to survive. It's only fair when the villains escaped and are back to normal after having a bowling ball sized chunk ripped out of their torso barely a few days ago.
>>3383983>I hope Arc has some sort of emergency teleport.probably she has. remember that she can also teleport, just like yuuki.>Those idiots just confessed on tape.this and the plane crash will definitely make the organization bring more agents by the end of the day.
>>3383983They strait up left and missed their flight somehow. Depending on how we can get the moms in the traffic jam (helicopter with a couple of shadowspectere's with a cell phone with Junko on the line. as we are on a boat a ways away) it might be a good idea to let Sachiko and Natalya think they actually killed the moms.>auraIt might let us finally approach Yuuki. She was looking for someone but didn't seem to want to see Sakura. Could it have been the dark queen?>>3383983>>3384013I think we might be able to pick up Arc if she doesn't port out of the ice. Remember we are currently sitting in a boat out at sea. If I interpreted the map correctly we are not far away from the dock district where the two warehouses are. Rivers move regardless of bullshit magical physics (a sunk item will move across the bottom unless it is ponderously heavy, and then it moves slowly) so Arc's ice cube should be moving our way. We should try to scout out where Natalya and Sachiko (if they haven't moved bases) are by their hope energy and we would find Arc by extension. Considering the shape she is in we might be able to strike up an agreement. As long as Natalya and Sachiko didn't block the transmission somehow, yeah they are both really screwed. Natalya left behind the ice on the battlefield at the outskirts of town, Kanna's house full of ice, and she bombed the plane. If we get rid of any witness that saw Junko at the airport we can have Okada spin that a terrorist attacked his airline and have Natalya as the prime suspect. We might be able to guilt trip the official that was blocking Okada from stopping the flight into committing honorable suicide and have a shadowspectere take his place. (Having a government suit that could shut down the roads or air travel in our manhunt could be handy) Considering Yuu's Mom mentioned she could easily get a job at an oversees consulate Yuu's Father might be a diplomat. A Russian terrorist/operative tries kill a Japanese diplomats wife by bombing a commercial plane. Yeah, that's going to make headlines and is going to be really hard to run from.Sachiko needs money to move. I think she might be using the real estate transaction to finance her movements. We could have Okada try to track her that way. No amount of mind wiping gets rid of the paper trail money leaves behind. That's not considering what the organization is going to do if they heard that conversation. I doubt they will be able to run far.The one thing I wonder is who's sister is Arc. I was running under the assumption she might be Tomoko but Arc recognized Natalya. It's not clear which girl was speaking when the goodbye sister thing came up.
>>3384103>She was looking for someone but didn't seem to want to see Sakura.she was looking for....sashiko, i think. After all, she's the one that killed her. The problem is that we need to talk to her alone without Raye or Yuu, because she can connect the dots and try to kill us just because we might know where sakura is.>They strait up left and missed their flight somehow.They somehow managed to break all the rules in an airplane, rent a car and leave without anybody batting an eye.>it might be a good idea to let Sachiko and Natalya think they actually killed the moms.Definitely. It might even work in our favor even more if we let them think that we are unstable because of that.>they are both really screwed. They had no way to know that Arc was bugged. Otherwse they would have stopped the transmission when we rescued Yuu. Actually, even if they scrambled this transmission, the other fight got recorded as well, yet the organization seems to not care. why is everyone so incompetent?!?>who's sister is Arc.I'm betting on natalya. Sashiko is too unstable to leave any loose ends and arc would have acted on her when she got an idea of what she did 3 years ago.
https://general.arantius.com/sinking-ice-cubesSugary ice powers seems like the sort of thing a magical girl might end up with by accident.Natayla has yet to realize the disadvantage her ice cubes present is that she actually cryogenically freezes her victims AND magical girls are more durable. Her victims can survive for hours on end if sheer luck goes their wayhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Hilliard She just needs to get fished up before it's too late.My bet is/was that the sister is the person on the line>>3384133Even if she's bugged, she doesn't have a person listening in all the time. HQ has been getting nervous lately as more and more info comes out so increased surveillance is likely. Finding out shadows panty raided her warehouse probably got them monitoring her closer in the short term like how her being hospitalized and running into Junko meant she was being heavily monitored by the time we ran into her a second time.>>3384133The thing to keep in mind just how powerful Arc is. If their best agent refers at least partially to strength then she's not supposed to actually find anything or anyone that can stick around and take her on in a fight. Assuming that we were an average group; she is/was fully capable of fighting us head on when the "standard" for taking on decently evolved corruption is an entire highly specialized group. It speaks volumes about whatever the hell Sachiko has been able to leech away for the past few years from unsuspecting victims and Natayla's prowess at murder that they were actually able to win even in an ambush situation. If Arc had told them she needed backup then the place would have ended up absolutely swarming because of how dangerous the idea of Arc actually needing backup is.
>>3384219>she doesn't have a person listening in all the time.Not having someone listening doesn't mean she's not being recorded. Anybody of her rank, with a handler that apparently hates her (given how trigger happy they were to dock her pay.) would go the extra mile to record all of her movements.>The thing to keep in mind just how powerful Arc is. Arc was literally taken by surprise. You can be the most powerful being around, but if they manage to get you unaware, the fight is over before you can retaliate. I mean, the girls aren't bullet proof, a decent assassin with a standard sniper rifle can kill all the girls with no problem, so i don't find it unfeasible that the two girls can bring down Arc, specially because she's not at her 100% right now.
>>3380696Very good intro but the last sentence feels a little bit convoluted.
>>3384257>Not having someone listening doesn't mean she's not being recorded. well...yeah? I wasn't implying otherwise? The only issue atm is if she was being listened to on a live feed by an actual person who can respond with some healing magic and good thawing out.The important part is that Arc was probably actually speaking to somebody that she knew was watching/listening while they talked about their villainous plans.I'm really not sure how durable magical girls actually are. That 911 operator probably thought we were exaggerating about Kanna being frozen in a block of ice or is an absolute champion for adjusting to the fact that magical ice wounds are now a thing. I think they have at least SOME durability to match the low level super strength or else the fights they get in on a regular basis would be fatal by accident or they'd die from misjudging the distance to a rooftop.
>>3384451>I'm really not sure how durable magical girls actually are.I don't think that "durable" is the right word. they have a crazy regeneration, but seems like other than some mild super resistance to damage, they can easily bleed and be hurt.
>*?????*The sizzling ice starts to melt itself and explodes from the outside. You crawled up from the freezing interior of the block. Sitting yourself on a floating block of ice, you see that you're at the sea with the city on sight."Better start paddling huh..."You summon your spear and dip the tip on the sea water. Like a throttle, you start to twist it as the wind below starts to propel you to the city."I'm gonna get a new phone too....damn it."Arc sails back to the city thinking those two girls who are acting crazy. Like they want to bring chaos in the city. Does this means that they want to bring a lot of noise. For what?"Sister my ass, you are the one I'm gonna get my answer from you fucking bitch."You spit your disgust as you're getting closer to the city and try to be inconspicuous as much as possible. Most of them are probably planning to have a field trip here. You are here to prevent that. Moving and weaving throughout the docks and into the city, you arrive at your apartment free from anything snooping inside. Fishing another phone case, you dial the number."HQ?""We heard everything.""Then you know what to do HQ.""As much as I want to send more, this is personal for you.....right?"".....sorry.""Don't be. You're trying to erase what your father's mistake are. New mission Arc, exterminate the class A rougue witch in the area. Go wild and no mercy.""I intend not to......she made me this in the first place."A creeping sensation slowly crawling in your body like a leech. Your expression turn from a pokerface to a manic smile that screams death. The white aura turns into black as you transform into a new one."I'll personally deliver death to then....and she will never come back."
you know, it takes surprisingly very little to turn a magical girl into a shadow(and arc is gonna be madder because she destroyed all of her clothing for nothing).
Calling the Shadowspectre who mans the boat, you order it to get to the dock as fast as possible. As you are nearing the docks you grab Yuu and jump to the docks and rush to where you felt the familiar sensation."Junko what is happening?"Not saying a word, jumping to the rooftop to rooftop until you spot a certain vehicle where you stop in the middle of the road. The car stop abruptly and the driver spit curses at you. But you ignored them and you open the door to reveal a shock faces of your mothers. Then Yuu's mother face turns into a scowl."Yuu, what is the meaning of this. And why are you in the middle of the road? Do you know there are cars around?""M-mother?""Hmph.....your crying doesn't buy me anymore. You kept doing that when you were young you young lady. I'm gonna need some expl- oooof"Yuu tackled her mom which knocks the wind out of her. She cried at her lap saying never letting go again and some apologies. You on the other hand watch your mother while your mother watch you in confusion."What is it Junko? Something on my face?"But you cant hold your feelings. You run to her and also cry on her lap. Your mother hugs you soothingly."Shhhh!!! There there, scary monsters will go away if you stop crying right? Do you remember that.""M....Mom *sniffs* I'm not a little girl you know.""Oh but you will always be my baby girl. Forever. Now now don't worry. Everything will be alright?"With the two of you cry in your mothers arms. Several cars are now blowing their car horns honking at the taxi."HEY DIPSHIT GET A MOVE ON!">Pay the driver and get the mother to the safety>Ride the Taxi and move to.....(Where?)>Write-in
>>3384650The same sort of applies to shadows. I thought they were generally invulnerable to anything other than being purified by magical girls or killed/siphoned off by us due to the regeneration, but a basic propane tank is capable of taking out that septic tank shadow.I guess healing factor combined with magical defense buffs might be a better way to describe it?>>3384873That's been noted before.>>3385303Not in the mood for this shit AND they were being rude. Summon claymore and slice their engines in half>Call Okada and ask if he can arrange for a helicopter to pick us up. Also get the info on whatever room/hotel they were supposed to be staying in. If Sachiko and Natayla actually booked it then we may have found the hiding place they were planning to go when they skipped town since they weren't planning on our parents actually leaving. We can have some shadows scout out and/or search the rooms after making sure there aren't any other magical girl collaborators in the area.
>>3385303>Ride the Taxi and enjoy the ride wherever it goes.
>>3385315When I say slice the engines in half, I mean nonchalantly before returning back to our mother btw.
>>3385315>>3385303>Call Okada and ask if he can arrange for a helicopter or a car and driver to pick us up and take us to the hospital.>Tell the moms your glad they're safe. There was a plane crash and they managed to miss it. You were looking all over for them and thought the worst had happened.>Tell them that we are going to have to move safehouses for them. One of our team got attacked and we suspect that the plane crash was a deliberate attack.>Talk to the moms about Mako's little sisters. They might need someone to take care of them while thier mother is in the hospital and Mako is "sick" with us.
>>3385315>That's been noted before.But arc is a "professional". She's someone that (ideally) has been trained to be above the standard and is backed up by an organization that should(though it doesn't seem like) want to avoid having their assets turned into shadows. It shouldn't be this simple. Hell, converting Marie and Raye was harder than this.>Not in the mood for this shit AND they were being rude. Summon claymore and slice their engines in halfWe're better than that.
>>3385350>We're better than that.No we aren'tI think you missed the implication with Arc. She was ALREADY half shadow or a different blend than we are. Arc is the previous time Sachiko tried this crap.
>>3385367>She was ALREADY half shadow or a different blend than we are.What, mind elaborating on that? Because unless the corruption we accidentally fed her when we found her unconscious slowly ate her away, she's, well was, "pure"(unless she was the girl that was missing from the newspaper?).
>>3385395Something something saber alter>>3384830Here
>>3385395>"Don't be. You're trying to erase what your father's mistake are. New mission Arc, exterminate the class A rougue witch in the area. Go wild and no mercy.">"I intend not to......she made me this in the first place."Not only does it imply she was already like that, it shows that HQ shouldn't and/or isn't actually surprised at this transformation since this is about when they're most definitely going to be keeping tabs on her.The big question now is just how much of the sachiko identity is even real since she might actually be some sort of semi-immortal witch using fake names by now.
>>3385395>"I intend not to......she made me this in the first place.">A creeping sensation slowly crawling in your body like a leech...>The white aura turns into black as you transform into a new one.Arc is something like Junko if Sakura wasn’t holding back the tide of hope energy. The blazing sun of hope energy was just covering up this side of her. It’s why she was taking a little bit of corruption as serious business. Arc is probably very vulnerable to it. She could be part the experiment four years ago but wouldn’t make sense for her handler to talk about her in the third person.
>>3385315>>3385316>>3385337Telling the rude driver to fock off and ride the sunset.....Writing
>>3385420 >she might actually be some sort of semi-immortal witch using fake names by now.I doubt that. They have the same "father" after all. It might not be a biological one, but in order to call someone father you usually need to be raised by them from a young age.>"I intend not to......she made me this in the first place.">Not only does it imply she was already like that...I understood it that the "she made me this" part was the Ice cube and whatever she had to do to return to land. I mean, she seemed surprised by her transformation into a shadow, meaning that she had no idea that she was far too gone until she saw the external effects of being a shadow.>>3385434>Arc is something like Junko if Sakura wasn’t holding back the tide of hope energy.Hmm, that's an interesting point of view. It still has some plot holes(like you will fucking die if there is more hope than corruption), but it kind of works.
>>3385469>die if there is more hope than corruptionArc's handlers know about the transformation it's not a surpriseAs for dying from hope. We don't know if that would be the case. It might hurt like hell but there was another option close to death. The shadows assumed would just kill Junko but Okada doesn't really know what's going on with Junko other than his queen prophecy. It would kill Sakura probably. In a meta sense we had the option to refuse Sakura's offer in thread four. I'm assuming if we told her to fuck off we would have become something like Arc is here eventually.
>>3385469The theory is a bit out there, but the timeline is getting ridiculously cramped with hyper competent scheming (that we've recently shown is not actually sachiko's forte) depending on how the timeline is going.Sakura didn't recognize Arc which means she MIGHT have been from an even earlier experiment by Sachiko. With the fact that we shouldn't age (established by Sakura) coming into play, the timeline easily gets extended back even further if Arc is a previous/alternate version of us.Sakura might have been the version in between which could explain why her former teammate is so hostile. She ended up succumbing more to shadow instincts or taking longer to become lucid than we did.My current bead on the timeline is Scientist (Sachiko's dad?) does the experimentsand produces Arc. (Russian involvement?) Maybe also does something to Sachiko before it all collapses?Sachiko then hunts down and finds a MG group to experiment on and kill and does this all semi competently despite her age.??????Our team becomes the next wave of victims.
>>3385520>Arc which means she MIGHT have been from an even earlier experiment by Sachiko.That makes sense: Arc is the oldest MG we know...she's in her 20's i think? But they might literally be sisters, which makes everything weirder.
>>3385461"Mom, where do you want to go?""Huh? Well we were going to the airport but it was blocked so we were going back to the house.""Then....driver, go to this building."The driver nods and you both ride on the taxi albeit it's a tight fit. You elect to go to the front seat when someone is throwing a water bottle at you. It missed but it flown right next to your cheeks."GET A MOVE ON YOU FUCKERS!! YOU ARE BLOCKING THE TRA-"Suddenly the hood of his car was cut in four ways. You rode the front seat and you urge the driver to go pointing directions to where you want to drop off. After twist and turns, you arrive at a familiar hotel that Okada once offered to you. You drop off and go to the building. The receptionist asking you if you have reservation but you show Okada's credit card which they give you a key card immediately and welcomed you stay. Outside you see Yuu's mother is mad again. Going to the pair, you can hear their conversation."I can't believe my bag was stolen." Mrs. Mitsukoshi huffs."I told you to bring your purse on you but you didn't listen to me!" Mrs. Kurosaki adds."I'm not a purse person, I'm a more bag person. Purse is so gaudy anyway.""Mitsukoshi-san please, your attitude. You are showing that in front of your daughter.""Well our daughter isn't normal anymore. What's my attitude will change that.""Everything. You are embarrasing me Mom....."And so everyone around you look at your group. Mrs. Mitsukoshi blush embarrased at her whining dispaly."How about we go to the hotel. I already have the room. Let's go."You lead them to the elevator and you see a card slot. You put it in there and the elevator closes where it goes up. After a few seconds it open to see...."Wait....the whole floor is our room?"Yuu goes out to see if it is really true. The mothers are similarly astonished. You're also surprise from the room the receptionist gave you.You all settle first and after a few minutes, you call your mother and sit on one of those expensive leather sofas."Mother, we thought that you we're on that plane. The one you was going to board crashed.""Wait what? So the reason we can't get to the airport is because of a plane accident?""Yes.""Now for some reason, I'm glad my purse was stolen from me. And maybe to Kurosaki-san who insist she want a sexy bikini."Mrs. Mitsukoshi glare a liitle bit to your mother which she can only blush."Now Mitsukoshi-san, not in front of our daughter.""Anyway mother. You are not safe here. They thought that you are already down in that airplane so we will hide you for the moment. You can have your vacation as much as you want as soon as we finish our business. We may also need you to babysit 3 girls on you as they are also in danger."(1/2)
>>3385540"Uhuh.....so we are like you nannys now huh." Mrs. Mitsukoshi said."Please, our daughters are doing the best as they can....whatever they may be.."Bless you mother for not asking too many questions. You say your excuses while Yuu talks to them. You pick up your phone and called someone."Okada?""My queen? Is everything alright?""Yeah. Mothers are safe.""I'm glad my queen. What will be your command?""Get us another safehouse close to the school of Mako younger sisters are. We are moving them along with my mother and Yuu's. And a car to drive them safely.""Alright my queen. Please wait for a while. I'll send my shadowspectre on the floor if everything is ready. And i'll send a van for the transportation so we can pick up the children. I may send Mako to convince her little sisters of hers to come with them and move.""You do that. Also....thanks Okada.""I'm not worthy of your praise my queen. But thanks."You drop your call and...>Go somewhere (where?)>Do something (what?)>Train (what?)>Investigate (who?)>Write-in
>>3385533>A five to eight year gap between children isn't that unusual especially between the first and second. Plus they might all be half-sisters with the same father.>>3385546Write in:>Stay with the moms for now. Someone has to watch them. Hug your mom again.>Use the mental link to check in with Marie.>Talk to Sakura. We have time to kill while we are waiting. If Yuu has the other half of Sakura's powers what could Sakura teach her. Could Yuu learn how to use the blessing to help obscure our movements.
>>3385546>Do something>Call marie, ask her about Kanna's progress.
>>3385546>Ask our moms for information on the hotel room they supposedly "won". Investigate it to see if anything unusual is going on with it and then relay the info to Okada if it really was paid for by Sachiko and Natayla. Some detectives or specters can probably check to see what the next name registered to the room is as it might be the alias those two were planning to use after they left the city. There's a bunch of trails that are easy to follow from the hotel and plane tickets.>Plot with Sakura like >>3385563said.>Amass army once Mako's sisters and our family are in a safe location. Let Mako sit in on the conversations. The more she understands about magical girls and corruption the better she can survive on her own if things go south.She might actually be a really effective magical girl now that I stopped to consider her abilities. If you combined purification with her being a vortex that sucks nearby corruption up she just has to purify everything 24/7 and she'd never need to even fight any shadows within her territory because she cleaned everything up.

>>3385701>"Marie, what is the situation with Kanna?">"Bad. She woke up earlier. I think Sachiko made his brother hostage.">"That bitch......anything else?">"Quiet on this front. I can rendezvous with you while Raye stays here....or the other way around. Or we two go while two uncle's shadow will guard Kanna. Your choice.>"Alright I'll get back to you Marie.You go back to where Yuu and two mothers are talking."And so Kurosaki-san is going to buy a bikini. A BIKINI!! Do you have any shame at all Kurosaki-san?""Like I said, I have every confidence with my body despite my age.""You old hag don't you glare me like that.""I'm not though, or are you that jealous....."She seductively wiggled her hips and push her chest at Yuu's mother."Mom please calm down." Yuu tries to calm down the angry mother. You just shake your head from the comedic display they are doing."Sorry to interrupt but do know anything about the trip that you "won?""Hmmmm, it was something like a southern islands and a.....gulag?""Yeah the island name was gulag."Huh? Gulag? You're confident with your geography but this is the first time you hear about gulag. Seems the ticket is fake."Anyway I'm glad that you are safe mom." You go and hug your mother again. She hugs you too while humming a tune that you are familiar to."Your mother will not go away my dear."After a little while, the sunset is setting down and slowly the night is starting. You leave your mother for a minute while you talk with Yuu privately."Yuu, this is just the beginning. We don't know where is Sachiko or what she is planning.""I know. But we don't know where to begin.""I have a few ideas.">We wait for 3 days for Kanna to recover.>Let's find that magical girl which Marie antagonized. She may help us.>Let's find the shadow ice that we fought last time. She may help us>Let's go back to the mansion. Okada can help us something.>Write-in Be right back gonna eat.
>>3385797Write in: "Once our Moms are safe we should take Mako and meet up with Marie and Raye. Us girls need to sit down with Okada and plan our next move. I'm going to talk to Sakura for a sec.">"Sakura do you have any input? You think there might be a way to get through to your friend Yuuki? I know you want to help her. It's unrelated but what does Yuu's half of your powers entail. Could she use the blessing to help us move Okada."
>>3385797Adding on to the write in in >>3385829>"Not to get you any madder Mrs. MItsukoshi, but what was in your bag. I worried that if Sachiko and Natalya attacked the plane they might have stolen your bag too."
>>3385797Oh she's going right in the sack now even if we have to break her bones to make her fit in.>Make an army. We keep on getting picked off or in trouble because we can't be at two places at once. If we can't then an army of darkness can.(The local yakuza should be back by now if hearing all the supernatural crap going on after they left didnt scare the crap out of them? All of those rapists around Mako's house seem like deserving targets)>Mako is staying where we can see/hide her if she goes outside the mansion again tonight. Sachiko might mistake her radar blip as corruption spike to be us and shoot otherwise.>Investigate onii-chan.(mostly just to confirm he's missing) We don't know if They booby trapped him or kidnapped him. Booby trapping is easier to deal with since we just dispose of them before they set it off instead of having to find whatever random hole he was shoved in.>Maybe try to plan a trap? We are decent at masking signatures. We might be able to trick them into thinking we went mindless shadow and then they try to ambush us only to discover we made tons of backup.Idea. This is a bizarrely high amount of semi public attempts on the lives of people related to Okada. He can probably make the police forces do the searching for us via political leverage at the idea that somebody is targeting the lives of anyone remotely close to a pillar of the city and we swoop in when they get flushed out.

And also that russian girl.""But first we have to make our mother go safety first."Both of you go back to where the mother who are enjoying the food that was delivered. And yes wine included."Mother not that I would spoil your dinner but please for our sanity sake. Don't drunk yourselves again.""Of course not. We are just drinking to celebrate from that near death accident right Mitsukoshi-san?""Of course of course. Now do you kids have something to do right? Go on. We are adults. We can look out ourselves. Also I think I won't gonna go out considering how lascivious all the things around here. I want to make this last as long as possible.""What she said.""Anyway. Do you know what is inside your purse Mrs. Mitsukoshi-san?""Oh? Well nothing really. It's just my spare underwears, some clothes. and my travel documents along with Kurosaki-san.""I see....well enjoy yourselves then. And do get too drunk."Both of them raise their newly opened champagne and drinks it.....in bottle."Mothers..." You muttered..................You and Yuu goes to the hospital where you see Kanna asleep. Marie stands up and meets you."Her fever is still there but she isn't in the worst condition like the last time. Although after her fever, she would be weak to move on. I don't know how though."They way I see it. That is because she is low in hope energy. Maybe she is worried about her brother.>"Then we need to save her brother. But we don't have means of way to track her brother."Not to worry, isn't that Yuu job to do mundane things?>"We'll ask her later then.""Anyway, we may look for potential allies at the moment.

I want to ask her a few questions without making her worse.">If we could wake Kanna up without hurting her, ask Kanna about her brother and what happened.>Call Okada and ask about the teleporting shadow and if he has heard anything in today's Chaos.

The shadow and Sachiko might be there so it is a logical place look for answers.
>>3386051Just clarifying something in >>3386083 after I woke up a bit more.>When we talk to Okada, not only tell him to cancel the travel documents but we want Sachiko and Natalya to think mom squad died. Get the mother's fake ID's and real spending money until this blows over. Tell Okada between Sackio's mother's real estate deal and mom squad's credit cards there should be a paper trail to track Sachiko and Natalya. If we could undo Sachiko's brainwashing we might be able to get answers from her mother.
>>3386074>>3386083>>3386117"Can we wake Kanna up?""I don't know. But we can try."You approach Yuu for the moment and go near Kanna."Yuu, Kanna is low on her energy. Can you spare some to her?""Sure I can."Yuu extends her hand and into Kanna's body. The light particles goes inside Kanna but you swear there is something black that was mixed in but you didn't mind it at the moment. Then you see Kanna stir."Yuu, stop...."Yuu stops and Kanna wakes up her eyes slowly opening."S-senpai?""Kanna! Good thing you are safe now.""S-senpai.....Natalya-san.....attack my home.""I know, I know. Can you tell us what happened?""I was.....going to take a bath when....my brother let Natalya in......and then she come in.....the bathroom.....half my body was......iced. Then she said that......my brother........he will keep it.......send to her country.......please senpai......save brother.......please.""I will Kanna, but we need to track him first. Do you have anything that we can help him track you brother?"Kanna nods and then fishes something in under the blanket. She gives you a picture of her family."Give it to Yuu and cast track."You give the picture to Yuu and she cast track. Then Yuu face flushed embarrased."What's the matter?""Uhm.....I think Kanna can answer that."Kanna smiles."I think that will be our secret Yuu-senpai. I mean you feel the same with Junko-senpai right?""Kanna! Not in front of her!""Hehehe.....sorry senpai.....I'm gonna sleep for now. I'm.....still tired.""Rest easy Kanna. We will rescue your brother.""Thanks......"Then Kanna eyes slowly close as sleep overtaken her."Let's return to the mansion. ASAP I remember that it is possible that Sachiko and Natalya stole something from my mother.""Let's go then, you two. Guard Kanna."The two shadowspectre stand attention and salute. The group move out of the hospital.(1/2)
>>3386161.............................>*Okada's Mansion*The door opens as you see Mako humming something. She has already a shadow in the back. She must have learned from Okada. "Mako! How is work.""Oh! My queen welcome home?""Queen?""Well most of them call you queen so why I can't?""Nevermind that, where is Okada?""He is on his office calling various agencies. I don't know who are they though."Keep it up then. And oh, we are moving your siblings to an acceptable and spacious house. How is your mom?""She was prepped for a scheduled examination if there is a chance to heal my mother.""Then my best wishes to you mother Mako, I hope you continue working with us.""No in fact this is the most pleasing workplace that I ever worked for. Or I'm just waiting for you to throw me away. Whatever comes first.""Uhm....I'll go to Okada's office now.....just work whatever needs to be worked.""Of course my queen. Call when you need me."She bows and continue cleaning the.....now that you see it clearly she was cleaning your portrait......"WAIT WHAT? MY PORTRAIT I MEAN HOW?""Oh...Uhm....Master Okada commissioned it.""I'm gonna talk about this one too."You go to where Okada office is and you see him handling 2 telephone and various mobile phones. When he sees you, he drops all calls and greets you."Welcome my queen. How can I help you?""Okada, cancel the travel documents not the flight details make them missing so they wont be forged. Also give them fake identifcation and real spending money until this blows over. Although please don't give them too much or they will spend it on any alcoholic drinks. Also we need some information about Mrs. Yumegawa. Last time we talk is about her selling the house. You may have some ties to some real estate. See if you can track it. We may have need Sachiko mother to ask."It will be done my queen. Anything else?""I'll call you when I think of something."You face around and the girls have your attention."Remember that girl that we raided the warehouse one? We gonna find her and convince to fight on our side."Alright but how? Also we have to find Kanna's brother too." >Kanna's brother in danger. Rescue him first.>Okada? What's with the portrait of me doing at the stairs?>Yuu, ping something, you can pick hope energy right?>Make enough chaos for Arc to appear?>Write-in
>>3386164>"Yuu, let me see something real quick.">"Check Yuu for corruption and clean her up if nessisary.">"Yuu see if you can ping that girl's hope energy and if you can pick up Kanna's brother.">"Girls there is no reason we can't try to find an ally and Kanna's brother tonight. That girl's warehouse is in the industrial district and there were a pair of suspicious warehouses in the docks near bye. We will scout those out. I'm trying to convince her to help us specifically because too many civilians are in danger. Those bitches were willing to cause a plane crash. I think that will help make it clear who is the real danger here.">"If we try to grab Kanna's brother alone we might set off a fight we are poorly equipped for at the moment. I want to make sure I have as much support as possible before I poke my head out again. Ideally we would set up a trap to lure the bitches away.">"Okada, any blips from the teleporting shadow? Girls we could use her help too if we could get close to her again."
>>3386164>Okada? What's with the portrait of me doing at the stairs?>Also find me the list of the private airports that are in the city. Send their locations to my phone whenever you have them. Well, thanks to the airplane bomb, most, if not all of the planes will be grounded, which gives us extra time to find the boy.>Lets go to Arc's warehouse first. We might get lucky and find her there. Then we'll go to the other warehouses. If they aren't there, we'll have to get creative.
>>3386164Adding to>>3386171"Okada, can you find me a list of private airports in the city. With the airlines grounded Natalya needs another way to transport the boy. Check to see if any ships are headed to Russia too. Send the list to my phone. The boy might be close by his transport."
>>3386164sorry to add more to >>3386171 but it seems like other anons are asleep and I know the portrait is going to come up.>" Okada, when did you get that portrait of me it's kind of embarrassing...but it looks kind of cool. Would you want one of me an Marie, no dressing up though....and could I have one of Yuu and I *blushes* for uhh, reasons.
>>3386186...no. that's not junko at all. Just read this again:>"WAIT WHAT? MY PORTRAIT I MEAN HOW?"She's not happy with the existence of the portrait.
>>3386187that sounds confused but not really unhappy to me
>>3386187fair I was taking her initial embarrassment and confusion gave way to her pride (since according to Okada, Junko has that sin), then gave way to Yuu-obsession. I don't think I got the vote in time for the update anyway.
>>3386185"Then we're going to do it simultaneously. Yuu, come here for a moment.">"Sakura please scan her for a moment."On it!You extend you hand and made a scan inside Yuu's body.Seems normal. Nothing out of ordinary.>"No corruption?"Maybe you are seeing things? Or is it because she is always near a shadow that she starts to adapt into it? I don't know really. Maybe we can make a Dark Magical Girl Passively if we keep this up.>"Please don't"Hey! I'm just speculating. Don't take this out on me.."Yuu, ping if you can find anything hope or maybe if you can find Kanna's brother.""Alright....I'll my best Junko.""Okada give me a list of airports. Private or public. Do you know all of them?""Well yes there are only one public city airport here which is now on lockdown. The other option you have is sea.""Nothing like a private strip?""No my queen. The land is too unstable to make one because the city is founded on the mountains. I do not know geography that much since I dropped off to school you know.""I see....Oh yeah! Do you remember that teleporting shadow?""Oh yes! I nearly forgot about her. But I can still detect her. She is.......with someone?""Hm?""Two people. If I have to surmize, they are in a battle?"Sachiko and Natalya found Yuuki? Fuck, they are trying to kill her to get that essence.>"Calm down Sakura......we will go there if-""Junko, I found Kanna's brother location. He is in the wharf area.....or around the area. And the one magical girl we saw at the warehouse, I kinda lost her signal but last ping was at.......your home?""What home?""Back in your old home.">Let's go to Yuuki, Sachiko and Natalya is there. She may need our help.>Let's go rescue Kanna's brother.>Investigate your old home. Seems Arc visited there.>Split up? (who and who?)>Write-in
>>3386189but would junko, the most pragmatic and serious girl from the group will ask for a portrait AND blush from all things? I could buy it from marie because she is the oldest and the one most accustomed to a high class life, but not junko.Also, no teenager finds a portrait cool when you have apps that can add a dog snout to your face and a dancing cactus to the background.>>3386190But junko is wrath among many other things. She's not defined by a single sin.
>>3386194>Let's go to Yuuki, Sachiko and Natalya is there. She may need our help.
>>3386194"Okada, how far is the battle from the wharf. If we use a vehicle could you have the shadow take him away after we check for traps.""Sakura, we will help your friend but we have to think of a way to keep her on our side.""Girls, Let's take the helicopter to the docks and see if we can get Kanna's brother back. While the bitches are distracted. Then high tail it over to Yuuki's battle."
>>3386199>>3386200I suspect that Kanna's brother might be booby trapped to keep us out of the battle. We might want check that first
>>3386210There is no reason for that. Kanna is "dead" and we are grieving with the pain of losing our mother; they aren't expecting a rescue mission and they can't use the kid as a threat against Yuuki because she doesn't care about a random civilian. The warehouse might be booby trapped with the normal traps, but not him.Also, if the girls manage to kill yuuki, they will get a huge power boost and we don't want that.
>>3386212That's a good point but Sachiko know Kanna was working with Yuu and whoever she blames as we showed up in the last battle shapeshifted. She might have figured we saved Kanna and will try to hold him as a trump card.I want to keep Sachiko off a power up too. If the boy is tracked up we should just leave him and proceed to the fight.
>>3386199>>3386200Writing also last post of the day
>>3386214The thing is that for all intents and purposes yuu and sakura(because they still ignore that junko is alive) arent available. Yuu is crying her heart out, slowly becoming a shadow, while sakura is a big unknown. But she might be close to yuu since she rescued her.Its just not possible that they expect an ambush from us after such a devastating blow. Also keep in mind that anime or not, fights last very little. One party just needs to get one real solid hit on the other before everything snowballs down. If we go to the warehouse we surely wont be able to help yuuki.
>>3386221It makes sense. I might be being paranoid. The real problem is making sure Yuuki doesn’t start another three way battle.
>>3386218"Let's go to Yuuki first. She needs our help. Girls, let's go."..................You arrive at some unknown location where you see a half finished building and sound of combat. You, Yuu, Marie and Raye are looking at one of the building not far away from the building that Raye told you."Marie, what do you see?""I see Yuuki struggling that is for sure.""Then.....">Do you want to shapeshift as Sakura?>Yes >No>Action? They didn't notice that you are here. Maybe you can take them off by surprise.>Write-in (What is your strategy here?)That took too long. Took a nap on my keyboard. Anyway see you tomorrow
>>3386237Thanks for running QM. I want to come up with a better strategy and see what other people come up with before voting.This is not a vote but I think we should not shapeshift as Sakura. (Make sure she is ready to help if things go pear-shaped though.) Yuuki may overreact again. Sachiko and Natalya think Junko and (if she knows Junko isn't dead) Yuu are going to be grieving--not operating at full efficiency; we could get them to overcommit to a losing battle again. We should set up another ambush. Have Yuu buff everyone. Junko and Yuu go in close combat with Raye as Close fire support and Marie at range again. Attempt to flush Sachiko and Natalya out of the house and into the open--where they would get raked by multidirectional fire.Alternatively, we could keep Marie closer and have her assist Yuuki at medium range as Sachiko might expect a long range attack again and Marie saved Yuuki from Arc and the brothel (if she still remembers that). The house is partially constructed so we would want to have Junko and Yuu flanks team bitch from behind while Marie assists Yuuki from another. If the roof isn’t on the place Raye could attack from above. Let’s see how team bitch handle three dimensional combat.Natalya is the priority target to me. Her AOE Russian winter attack is devastating especially because we aren’t completely in the open especially in plan B. Sachiko might have a Trio Finale type attack to also watch out for. If either bitch starts chanting for a special attack they become the priority target and get pelted with attacks. If that doesn’t work knock out Yuuki and run while firing: a fighting retreat. Raye and Junko might want to use fire liberally inside the structure. It forces team bitch out in the open where they lose their AOE advantage and the fire should make Natalya’s ice attacks less effective. It would also sideline Yuuki but she seems to not have much left in her.(QM a map would be helpful and how unfinished is the house. Have Sachiko or Yuuki blown any holes in the walls if it isn’t open. Don’t worry about this now it’s two in the morning where you are but it would be helpful later.)If we can shapeshift as a random and do the shadow girl voice, it might help keep Sachiko in the dark. but survival and winning comes first.
>>3386237I'm just gonna throw out some ideas and see if anons like any of them.I think we'll be doing the fight as Junko this time. Our wrath tank is overfilled, we got that weird tactical trait,A) Fire seems to do a decent job of weakening/melting Natayla's ice attacks. Maybe increase the temperature of the area to weaken Natayla's attacks? Yuuki might also rely on ice bullets, but they're still bullets in the end The only one on our side alive is Yuu and she can probably give herself an air conditioning buff ahead of time. With luck those two might end up with heat stroke mid battle.B) Jet fuel melts steel beams. We collapse the building they're in and hope they survive for us to interrogate. Yuuki can teleport so she's the least in danger barring Sachiko's plethora of abilities that we don't know about. Natayla might try to freeze her way out of death, but that leaves her a sitting duck for us to pick up.C) In retrospect we should have supercharged ourselves on Mako and done an alpha strike via Marie or a black hole bombD)Blanket the area in water so that if Natalya freezes anything it also ends up freezing herself since the water is everywhere.
>>3386237>shapeshift as Sakura>Have Yuu buff everyone>Marie, just like last time, move 700m away from the fighting zone and take shots against Nataly and Sashiko. I'll prepare my black hole and we'll jump in after your first shot.>>3386262>I think we should not shapeshift as Sakura.That's a bad idea. Sakura has more experience, more skills and probably more stamina than junko We do have extra rage inside us, yes, but that's useless because we aren't a good fighter, have very basic skills, and are against a mercenary and a weird military experiment or something. It also has the "advantage"of driving Yuuki into a berserk rage, which is a good thing because Yuuki needs to survive this. Also, they might over commit anyway because Yuu is here, we just need to sell the idea that Yuu is in a really bad moment right now.>Natalya is the priority target to me.Eh, both are equally important targets. If we kill sashiko, natalya might try leave the country ASAP, and if we kill Nat, Sashiko is fucked in a triple battle.>>3386513We can do B and C with no problem.
>>3386513It sounds like we are on the same page. Use fire to force Sachiko and Natalya out of the building. I was planning on using Yuu to supercharge the girls rather than Mako. (seems like a better idea to keep mako in reserve as she can't fight yet and we might need her and Okada's shadows to sabatage Sachiko's boat and recover her hostage.) my general sort of idea is:1.) Have Yuu buff Marie with speed and perception.2.) Have Yuu buff herself with speed and perception3.)Marie opens with a shot at Natalya. Followed by explosive shots for cover. Yuu buffs Junko with speed and perception. Raye moves out to firestorm the house. Junko uses vanguard on the team. (Junko and Yuu are still close by if Sachiko has a plan for dealing with ranged attacks.)4.)Junko and Yuu rush to flank team bitch. Raye attacks with firestorm from the air. Marie uses explosive shots for covering fire.5.)Junko uses firestorm to cut off team bitches path from Yuuki. Marie has time to reposition if she is under attack and can join Raye in assisting Yuuki.6.) Attempt to burn down the house so the fight spills into the open. Junko and Yuu should try to tie up team bitch for the ranged attackers. Spawn shadows, Homing sword bolts ect. (Yuu might not be the most useful fighter here against Natalya or Sachiko. She might just have to be on buff duty.) The ranged attackers ranged attack.7.) Natalya is the primary target. Most of Sachiko's plans currently have been with her help. I have a feeling if Natalya gets too wounded and the fight is going badly, Sachiko won't return the favor and will abandon Natalya to us. From there we can use that and torture to break her for information and possibly turn her into a shadow. Sachiko will probably get away due to plot armor. This much chaos (a burning building, magical girls and shadows fighting) might be enough to draw out Arc and she is firmly on team fuck Sachiko and little sis.>>3386571Sakura is better in battle but Yuuki was more worried about killing Sakura than survival or killing Sachiko. We don't want another three way battle. We might have to pull an Arc and knock out Yuuki, then we could use Sakura if things start going badly.
There is one thing I also overlooked that helps to close the power gap between Junko and Sakura here. Junko and Yuu have special combination attacks. We haven't had a chance to use them or see them yet as last training session we were working with Kanna to git gud and Yuu wasn't on our side firmly till last thread.
>>3386634There is no need to select which buffs Yuu uses on us, she can buff all of us with all of the spells. >Sakura is better in battle but Yuuki was more worried about killing Sakura than survival or killing SachikoI agree on principle, but we need to secure a kill or a heavy hit right now. Making Yuuki enter into a rage, will give her the extra edge she needs right now even if she will try to fight all of us at the same time. And who knows, maybe she won't be that mad this time.>>3386664I suppose so, but they are on a charge system for some reason (and i think they aren't on the pastebin. i can't find them). We also have combination attacks with marie and with all of us(but that one is a huge gamble). That gives us more or less 7-10 turns to end this and I'm not sure that they will go down that easily. Raye is made of cardboard and has to be protected, while Marie sucks in 1vs1 regardless of her raw power and Yuu has to physically hit someone and that places her at a disadvantage against natalya.
>>3386685>buffsIn most of the fights with Yuu we can select two at a time. I was just putting down which ones were the most useful. More power is good but I think we need to move fast and avoid taking damage especially for Raye and Marie.>combination attacksMost have been negative roll modifiers including the all out team attack. the only charge attack we have is the black hole. The combination attacks haven't been listed anywhere in the threads.
To make things easier for us and Corruptor I went back and found all of the posts with skills not int the pastebin:*Yuu's skill list (includes stuff not in the pastebin)>HASTE: Buffing yourself or your teammate, increases speed >EMPOWER: Buffing yourself or your teammate, increases attack >EVASION: Buffing yourself of your teammate, increases your sensesPASSIVE: Danger Sense: When Evasion and Haste is buffed. You will get a special buff that will alert you when there is an attack that will physically or magically harm you.>FORCED PUNCH: Dashing to the nearest enemy punching them away>FORCED KICK: Dashing to the nearest enemy kicking them with your knee.>(TRAIT) MARTIAL ARTIST....maybe - Yuu likes flashy moves and acrobatic stunts>SKILL RECOVERED: BFF - When paired with Yuu, Yuu tries to find ways to synergize their attacks with Junko defensive and offensive array of skills. (Junko & Yuu unique trait.)>ABSOLUTE LIE DETECTOR: seems self explanatory>Mass Purify: A big purifier of hope that purifies an area with heavy concentrated shadow. Any weaker shadow are killed while the stronger ones will be severely weakened. The more corruption the area is, the more hope energy will be expended.

>>3386758>In most of the fights with Yuu we can select two at a time.We only have fought once as her and it was never said that we can choose only two. We could choose two actions per turn, which is different.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3185233/#p3194927>the only charge attack we have is the black hole. From our side, yes. But Marie's unyielding loyalty has 3 charges per battle and I'm sure that the one we have with Raye(if we have one) is the same stuff.
>>3386805I meant charge attack as in takes a number of turns to set up, Not attacks with a number of uses or charges per battle.Raye's works with all rolls. I think QM might have changed how the modifier works or it is a unique skill to Raye. I'm pretty sure we have been using Marie's -10 in and outside of combat. The pastebin is kind of old and QM has played with how modifiers work in combat since it was written. To be honest, I find what does and doesn't get modifiers kind of confusing but I just roll with it (pun intended). *Raye Skill>NEW PASSIVE: Debauchery - Any rolls involving shadow related actions Rei will do. She gives -5 to every rolls. Will also work with her teammates.missed that when I found all the other stuff. Do you have any other ideas for combat? Just want to hear everyone out before I vote.
>>3386824My idea is to transform into sakura, have yuu buff us with all the buffs she can, charge the black hole and wait until marie can do another critical strike like the last one(which probably will be when they ground yuuki and are gloating about how they will kill her. That's why i want to appear as sakura).Ideally we will alpha strike them while they are stunned from Marie's bolts, severely hurting them or killing one of the two in the process. And Natalya is unable to hurt us with her russian winter or sashiko with her blasts, because we have the black hole in front of us.
>>3386571>>3386838>>3386513I'm against shapeshifting into Sakura, but what about this for a general battle strategy1.)The team holds position at the house to preserve stealth. Yuu team-wide buffs HASTE and EVASION on all the girls and herself. Yuu buffs EMPOWER on herself, Junko and Marie. Marie takes aim at Natalya. Junko casts VANGUARD on the party and starts charges the black hole (large).2.) Once the Black Hole is charged. Marie takes an aimed shot at Natalya. The rest of the team starts running/flying. Marie fires off some explosive shots for covering fire.3.) Junko and Yuu move together to flank. Ideally they would throw the black hole directly behind Natalya and Sachiko's position. Raye moves in from above to firestorm the building and use firestorm to cut Natalya and Sachiko from Yuuki.4.) With the vacuum at the back of Natalya and Sachiko, Junko and Yuu attack from the right flank deploying shadows and shields as necessary. Raye and Yuuki attack from the front behind a curtain of fire. Marie can continue to attack from range or reposition as necessary.5.) If team bitch doesn't overcommit they should exit the house into the open--where Marie can easily snipe them.made a quick map of the movements. The Ovals are the girls. Pink:Marie, Blue:Raye, Green:Junko and Yuu. The four pointed star: Yuuki, The five pointed star: Sachiko. The triangle: Natalya. The grey arrow would be the logical way for team bitch to escape the building into the open?
>>3387132Just a few notes:1)don't assume that Yuuki will help us. She might attack us because Yuu is here and probably already assumes that she is an ally of sakura. or she will pick the better part of valor and flee; that's why i want to be as sakura, because that will assure us that she will stay in the fight, even if she's gonna eventually fight us, but that's a problem for later.2)I don't think that we can throw the black hole, so we have to dash straight at the girls and hope we can shred them in pieces before they can react.
>>3387221>1I'm not assuming she will help us. I stated in some of my earlier posts we might need to knock her out and grab her. I just don't want her to be instantly hostile, which was her reaction to Sakura. We have helped her before as Junko, Raye, and Marie. She just knows Sakura grabbed Yuu not that she is working for her. If she runs off that's fine for us.2.)We have thrown the black hole before. The first time we used it was at the firing range with Mary. we were throwing them towards targets and having Mary shoot around them.
>>3386237Sakura>No not right now but let's see what Yuuki does. We might be able to transform later.Action>prepare an ambush:>The team holds position at the house to preserve stealth.

I'm personally against transforming into sakura. It seems to tire her out and being able to get advice/information from Sakura is probably more valuable than her leadership abilities when we should be able to open up more attack opportunities by tanking one of them. (It also means we lose out on being able to apply stealth to places like the penthouse floor or any other hideouts we go to until Sakura wakes up again. We don't know how it works so we absolutely need Sakura to be able to explain it so that Kanna or Yuu can put said barrier up.)If we manage to tend them on this battle that would be great, but I'm thinking that we'd need some sort of ambush/trap after luring them into a place with favorable conditions for us.Tactical leader is also our latests trump card and emergency button. We lose that if we change to Sakura.A black hole left under the building would suffice for bringing it down?Might be a good idea to check for random thrill seekers or vagrants while we're setting up demolition charges.
I forgot to make the maps so I will make them now but just to confirm. >Do you want to shapeshift as Sakura?>Yes>No>Sakura skills can only be used by Sakura
>>3387372What about sakura using junko's skills
>>3387370>I'm personally against transforming into sakura. It seems to tire her out and being able to get advice/information from SakuraThis is interesting. Supposing Sakura decides to be useful and not stay quiet, we should have a bonus against all the girls. But she can and has been picky in the past.>It also means we lose out on being able to apply stealth to places like the penthouse floor or any other hideouts we go to until Sakura wakes up again.what? that's not a skill we have; tranquility/cold blooded/skin contact is agnostic of who is piloting the body and only works within our body and maybe with whoever we are huddling with. If you mean the magic sealing that sakura did to the mansion...well, we still haven't learned how to do that, or how much time it takes to seal a house.>Tactical leader is also our latest trump card and emergency button. We lose that if we change to Sakura.Most if not all of the powers we have aren't anything special or are part of Sakura's original skillset. Hell, Tactical Leader isn't some unique skill, we're just telling the girls to fall back and attack as one. Anybody can do that.
It's probably smart to remember that the best laid plans often go awry. Anticipate difficulty and for them to not behave as desired.
>>3387372I'm going with Stay as Junko this time. >>3387428>what? that's not a skill we have; >tranquility/cold blooded/skin contact is agnostic of who is piloting the body and only works within our body and maybe with whoever we are huddling with. If you mean the magic sealing that sakura did to the mansion...well, we still haven't learned how to do that, or how much time it takes to seal a house.That's the point. We can only learn that from Sakura or have her teach it to somebody. If Sakura gets too tuckered out to chat then we completely and utterly lose the ability to ask her how she does it and having more than one place we can pop out of to ambush them from or entirely disappear from their trackers is a severe tactical advantage right now.
>>3387443>We can only learn that from Sakura or have her teach it to somebody.we don't have the time to learn that though and whatever free time we have we use it not talking to sakura and on other more important stuff. Sakura going to sleep is not an issue at all because after Yuu's rescue attempt she slept like 8 hours or so and by the next day she was up, ready and defusing Yuu's bomb. Also although the idea of hiding the rest of the girls is damn good i can tell you from a simple glance that whatever sakura did to hide the mansion requires materials we don't have(which probably includes a hope core), time and maybe learn or teach to yuu or kanna about shrine maiden stuff.>>3387372>Do you want to shapeshift as Sakura?>Yes
>Junko, I already Scanned the area. This is where we are right now."How far are we Marie to the building?">More or less a kilometer.
>>3387535>This is what I see inside. Currently, Sachiko and Natalya are pressuring her. We don't know when she can hold out any longer.
>>3387544I'll give you an hour or maybe 30 min to finalize your strategy. Or maybe I'll just write your strategy above.
>>3387544Oh boy, if they are on the rooftop, it changes everything.
>>3387556Yeah I didn’t think this was an unfinished multifloor building. With buffs and a running start could we even throw the black hole up there? I think Sachiko and co are facing towards Yuuki with their backs to the street. Is the building concrete or does it incorporate flammable materials like wood?
>>3387621building is concrete. The building north side is the one facing the road.
>>3387630So the map is inverted clockwise like this correct?
>>3387637Yes that is right....should have given a northings or whatever that map compass that points north.
>>3387630so they are in the third floor right?Hmmm, i don't think we'll be able to use the black hole....Ok, since marie can see them, Yuu stays behind with marie (while we get ready to jump on them) and empowers her with all the buffs as many times as she can. If she can stack them, the better. The first volley should be precision arrows aimed at the center of mass, while the second and subsequent ones are of the exploding kind. When marie switches to exploding arrows, yuu runs towards our position.At this moment we should be engaging the girls (and marie switches to normal arrows again)
>>3387710But we havent decided on the new strategy
>>3387661Yeah, black hole is not that useful here. Don't forget Raye can fly which gives her an edge here.>>3387544>The team holds position at the house to preserve stealth. Junko casts VANGUARD on the party. Yuu team-wide buffs HASTE and EVASION on all the girls and herself. Yuu buffs EMPOWER on Marie as many times as possible. Then, casts EMPOWER on Junko and herself. Marie takes aim at Natalya since she is exposed.>Marie fires a aimed shot at Natalya. The rest of the team moves--Junko and Yuu jumping/running with buffs take the left side of the building/Raye flies to the right side, zig zagging and sticking close to other buildings for cover. As the team moves Marie switches to explosive shots for covering fire.>Junko and Yuu engage with shields, shadows, homing sword bolts and whatever combination attacks Yuu can perform without getting herself in trouble. Raye provides close air support with firestorm. She can move under the floors to our side if the battle gets too intense. The goal would be to gage what Yuuki will do. If she is friendly move Raye towards her and Junko/Yuu will back her up. If not we come up with something.>>3387710sorry was still writing.
>>3387717>>3387723Ah then I'll wait more then....I haven't really started writing.
>>3387723I think this works.
>>3387723I can go with that.We can save collapsing a building on them for a later ambush scenario.
>>3387808i don't think we can collapse this though....its under construction, i think.
>>3387808I was thinking about Kiritsugu-ing the building but it would be dangerous with a lack of fire support in addition to Marie. Remember once Junko moves Natalya and Sachiko should be able to notice the girls again. That was what I was holding back as a last ditch scenario if everything else fails. Have Yuu damage the supports on one side of the building and toss the large black hole towards it and run like hell away.
>>3387814That makes it easier. (been taking construction courses at night and we did the relevant portions for the last week)Concrete takes a few days to dry out to the absolute minimum before you can do anything else to it (and 28 to be properly cured to the strength it's going to operate at during the building's lifespan. Dry out wasn't really the right way to describe it since concrete has a great deal of water in it for the sake of chemical reactions and elasticity but it at least is understandable in layman's terms.) Each floor should have horizontal formwork done with supports to carry the live load of all of the floors above it.Once the bottom floor dries they take some of the supports/formwork and move to the top floor to make a new floor.As such each floor is progressively weaker due to the concrete being fresher and not yet at optimum strength.Since this is a decent sized city and not a midget sized country like where I live there are probably going to be more than 3 floors on the building. This means that the process described earlier should still be in progress and as such there are nice and easy little supports we can knock out instead of steel or concrete beams that would render the floor/ceiling above incapable of supporting the weight of itself.Additionally Raye messing with the dirt underneath the foundation in a spot or two can have a drastic effect. Earth magic on the concrete would probably do.
>>3387866Huh. I was thinking it would be harder because it has lees weight on it, but i had forgotten the whole concrete deal.
Just to remind you that the "Black hole" cannot be thrown like a ball. At best you can throw it 5-10 meters away from you and even then, depends on how big the hole is, you would need to hold something so you wont get sucked.
>>3387723So? Is this your final one? Anything to add? Or to change?
>>3387878I think that's it.
>>3387874How did we move it around during the shooting range with Mary?>>3387866>>3387871Interesting. I think it might be a good contingency plan as it still doesn't deal with the angry people shooting at us. What are those supports made out of. I was thinking if the building had steel reinforcement we could have Raye alternate between firestorm and Ice blast to induce thermal stress in the steel and buckle the supports on the opposite side of Junko and Yuu.
>>3387888well... the building is already damaged and some pillars might be already frozen thanks to the fight that is going on. The exploding arrows will add another layer of chaos. It might be feasible to bring down the whole structure, unless its something like pic related. Then it might be easier since we can cut thorough an engine block with little to no problem.
>>3387888You didn't move around it. You just tossed it up while Marie shoots through it.
>>3387888The actual support is most commonly aluminum/steel but can easily be wood. The form work itself can be plastic, metal, or plywood if we're assuming they did prefabricated formwork for faster and more efficient work. I'm assuming that this is a future office building or hi-rise so it would be best for the plans or engineer to specify to pick out a two way flat plate slab rather than something more expensive like a composite slab (has steel framing so even if you knocked out the supports you'd have the metal of the floor itself holding the building up while the wet concrete falls everywhere.)TLDRVery high chance that half the stuff helping to hold up the building can burn or melt
>>3387912Raye doesn't have an earth magic spell yet so we would have to roll for her to figure it out. I think that leaves out turning this place into a much faster moving version of the Millennium Tower in San Fran.Let's assume it's not wood but steel/aluminum. between Raye inducing buckling/cracking via thermal stress and Marie's explosions, (maybe with a handful of Yuu/Junko SMASH!) Could we cause the building to implode or topple?This is a really viable plan if Yuuki isn't playing nice and the fight goes tits up. It would definitely get Arc's attention.
>>3387912Opened up my textbook for a glance (This is honestly the chapter I'm worst at for some reason)The black part is normally plyform(wood) but can be plastic rarely. Since I'm assuming it's a flat slab then its probably plywood.Everything under it is reasonably expected to be made of metal but as you may have noticed they are pretty skinny and easily moved by somebody with higher than average strength.
I have a confession to make.I was walking out to eat when I came home.I locked myself outside and I can't get inside my apartment. So I have to wait for an hour so I can borrow the keys in my apartment.Feel free to laugh at my predicament.
>>3388004That sucks. I've been there before.
>>3387723"Here is the plan girls. Yuu will buff us first and then I go in. Marie, you will be our sniper. If you can see then through windows. Shoot. Focus on Natalya more if possible. Then after I move in, you follow me and....""Wait wait wait....is that safe? Can we like stick together.""We don't want them to think that we're already here. So we will catch them off by surprise.""But what if they already know we're already here?""........Hopefully they are busy bullying Yuuki."That is so rude Junko that is my friend back there"Alright alright so here is the new one.

It may not be the most subtle and may risk exposing yourselves but it would give Yuuki time to recover herself.DYNAMIC ENTRY They'll be too stunned to react properly, either by us blasting the wall, Marie trying to kill them from afar or whatever splinters and random flying objects that the explosions create. I really want to use the black hole for the entry, but we need all the explosions we can have right now.
>>3388089>Write in: "Marie, how far is that building you can get an angle from? We should all stick together until you can get a shot off.

>>3388089>>3388121 Here is a map with my proposed actionknock out the four pillars on the second floor and the ceiling to put team bitch in a pitfall. After Marie fires her aimed shot and explosive rounds.
Uhm I forgot. Where do you want to enter? Entrance or Rooftop? Or just blow a hole in the wall in third floor. Because what i read is blow a hole in the ceiling from the second floor or did i mix it up?
Just caught back up to the thread. We’re going after Sachiko to protect Yuuki? This will be good.
>>3388149I was thinking enter at the base level entrance, head to the second floor, and then try to pitfall trap Sachiko and Natalya after Marie starts firing. Marie's explosive shots should help and Junko and Yuu can knock out the support pillars. That way they don't have much time to retaliate against Marie and are away from Yuuki, so she can catch her breath.
>>3388132"Marie, let me know when you get your shot off. Can you see the Second floor from there? If so Yuu and I will knock a hole in the second floor ceiling and bring Sachiko and Natalya to our level. Then Raye and you can reposition.

>>3388202i was thinking on that as well, but it neither makes sense. I'm betting on Natalya having threads on the lower floors.
>>3388206How did they have time to booby trap the building if they were fighting Yuuki here? Why didn't we check for traps? Looks like it might be time to demolish a building.
>>3388205Your barrage of icicles and Sachiko gun raining on the poor injured pistol shadow wielder, you kept the attack taking your time as you slowly chip away the pillar she is hiding. But something springs up on the first floor. Scanning, you see three individuals below."Sachiko......they are coming.""Alright, let's finish this then. Be ready on what they intend to plan.""Of course."Sachiko break off where, she intends to flank Yuuki. Yuuki on the other hand saw this and fire several bullets on Sachiko to make her back off."Stay down you shadow."With a fire, bullet coursing though the air.

>>3388211I can explain that for you.You see you only discovered that Yuuki is fighting Sachiko and Natalya. But what if Sachiko was fighting Yuuki first while Natalya readies everything and then she joins the fight?Take that as you will.

>>3388241>>3388248 adding.>Yuu start to buff all of us Maximum HASTE: PRONTO. >Marie blow open a hole on the third floor.>Sakura unless you have a better idea. I'm going to rig this building to collapse and we will jump and grab your friend and leave her with an opening to escape.
>>3388251well, i'll correct myself. Marie can't see where everyone is, which is functionally the same for our purposes. we just need a big hole for a quick entrance and exit
>>3388251>>3388248Please specify what floor or pillar you want to destroy to get onto the 3rd floor.
>>3388257That's what I'm going for in >>3388255Have Marie knock a huge whole in the third floor for us. Use the Haste buffs to jump/fly through it and jump down before the building comes crashing down.>>3388259A hole in the building wall as close to Yuuki as possible. We will exit the building and dynamic entry before it comes down.
>>3388261AH right....writing it then.
>>3388259>>3388263Yuuki, Might be able to figure out what we are doing and bail out anyway because she is in a tight spot and is about to be flanked.map added for clarity.
>>3388267>"I'm not planning to kill her, I'm planning to save her. Now unless you have a better idea. I'm going to rig this building to collapse and we will jump and grab your friend and leave her with an opening to escape."I...I trust you then. Please save her."Yuu, Haste!"A floating sensation in your body is felt. You feel weightless as your jump are getting higher without trying.>"Marie on my mark, blow a hole in third floor.">"On it!"Marie readies her arrow as she has her sights on the wall ready on Junko's mark."Girls once Marie blows up a hole in the wall, you will back me up so we can extract Yuuki out.""Alright Junko, were behind you."Running out of the building, you group of three are ready."Marie.....NOW!"Arrow sails from the building zooming through the wall and explodes."LETS GO NOW!!"You all jump in and into the hole where you see Yuuki clutching her shoulder as black blood oozes on her body. Then you hear Sachiko says.NOW!The two of them rushes onto you and you move the three of you where you immediately pick up Yuuki away from them. Sachiko and Natalya fires magical bullets and ice as you try to dodge the incoming projectile where Yuuki hides. The three of you back off a little bit where they are standing on a hole of the building.I must say that you are late onto the party. But it also work for us too since this will be your grave"WHAT DO YOU MEAN?"You will see.....Then you realize. If this building is bobby trapped to the ground then."SHIT GIRLS BLOW A HOLE IN A WALL!! THIS IS A TRAP""NOT A CHANCE!!"Then you see outside that the whole building starts to be encased in ice. She is planning to trap you here. Sachiko fires a bullet at you and you summon your shield. Raye fires off some of her powers but the fire rate was too fast that she elect to poke out and hide from the incoming bullets. Yuu tries to heal her which Yuuki shouts in pain. Shit Junko I know this skill.....she will summon a numerous icicles around us and it will stab out body. Million needle Icicle trap.>Million Needle Icicle Trap: Trapping the target which summons a million Icicle around you stabbing you body......as of date, no one survived to tell the tale.>Natalya is springing a trap on you in 3 turns. If you cannot break off then it's game over. Sachiko is pressuring you to not to get close . Natalya is cleverly hidden behind Sachiko. Marie can't see you or Sachiko except if she goes inside which is not recommended. The floor top and below are considered to be trapped with unknown effect and the whole area is entrapped into ice which the only way out is where Natalya and Sachiko is blocking. What will you do? Will Junko escape from the Russian trap? Will Sachiko be victorious or will Junko win with their skin of their teeth. Find out tomorrow in Magical Girl Revenge Quest.TIME TO SLEEP! See you tomorrow.
>>3388298I'll post the choices tomorrow after i get my sleep. I got a great headache and i would like to lie down. The thread next time would be late as usual. Anyway thanks for reading.
>>3388300Can you update the Maps too with the options. I'm confused where Marie is that she has no line of sight but could blow a hole in the wall.
Assuming that the building isn’t collapsing from the weight of all of this ice, what about this ice is different from the rest of her ice that we’ve been melting? Raye can kinda boil sachiko and Natalya alive in there since they’re the only living beings here.If there’s something stopping Yuki from teleportation we can just dispel it
>>3388351I have a plan, two actually. I just want to see what the map looks like.
>>3388351>what about this ice is different from the rest of her ice that we’ve been melting?This ice is PLOT™ ice. it does whatever bullshit its needed at the moment.Ok... if natalya and sahiko are on the entry hole Marie made(and natalya is behind sahiko). Lets just order marie to blow them to pieces or make it rain on our position. That will break off their concentrationOr we bumrush them. Natalya has to keep concentrated or the spell fails. Sashiko is one can only target one has to stay immobile or we kill natalya.
>>3388685That is part of my plan. Team bitch is in a nice strait line for us towards the exit. I will start typing as soon as I finish up some boomer yard work.
>>3388725i was also thinking in summoning all 7 shadowshades(although i feel they will be made out of paper), healing Yuuki(so she can flee away) and having Yuu cast hasten on all of us . Sashiko cant possibly hit 10 moving targets at the same time. also lets buy some grenades. The could easily deal with this specific situation
>>3388298"Junko, if you have a brilliant plan, please do it. I don't want to die a virgin" Raye comments"Wow, that was the first time I heard you saying that Raye." Yuu comments back as both of them are trying to hide behind Junko."Shut up! I just want to read the climax of the book I read which will be released next two weeks" Raye replies."HEY YOU TWO! HOW ABOUT TRY TO HELP ME AND NOT HAVING A CONVERSATION BEHIND MY BACK AND DO SOMETHING TO RELIEVE SOME PRESSURE!">Raye, call Okada. He could use some help to us.>Mentally call Marie, see if she can find a blindspots that could target Natalya>Mentally call Sakura if she has any hidden Miko skills that could help them get out of here>Raye, break off from us and split on the other side so Sachiko will fire in two direction.>Write-ingoing back to sleep. My head hurts and so my eyes too.
>>3388785>Mentally call Marie>Marie, they are blocking the exit hole you made. Hit them hard with an explosive shadowrain.>Yuu, buff us with hasten>Summon al 7 shadowshades and have them weave towards natalya>Raye use a continuous firestorm on sashiko. Bullets can't stop fire.
>>3388809>>3388785>Also, begin running forward. our shield is holding and there isn't a force pushing us back.
>>3388785>Mental Link: Marie, get ready to fire. They are blocking the exit hole you made. I know you can't see, but I can. I will spot for you and guide your shots in. If you can see a blindspot, exploit it. Natalya is right behind Sachiko in a strait line. I'm going to try to push them forward when everything is ready. I'll give you a signal.>Raye, bullets can't block a stream of firestorm. Get ready. I'll give the word when.>Yuu, don't heal Yuuki, buff her. Buff all of us. I'll give Yuuki some corruption to heal.>Sakura, take a look at Yuuki, She is not moving like she normally can. Do you see a string? If so, if Yuu, Yuuki, and I pull hard enough, you think I can pull Natalya into Sachiko's back. It would distract both of them. If not, dispel Yuuki. We need Yuuki back in the fight.>Sakura we are two minds but we are really going to have to fight as one to get out of this. If you are holding anything back I need to know or we both die. I need to stay awake to guide Marie. Can you use my hands to use your special techniques and corruption blade? I'll tell you when. I have two more contingency plans. I could see if I can charge the black hole while you fight. If push comes to shove let's get angry, I could try to summon that thing I became today. >Yuu, Get behind me and ready to heal me. I really, really love you, you know that. Lend me your energy, we fight as one when we push forwards.(if there is a string)>(Yuu,see where my hand is, there is a magical string. You should have the power to interact with them too. Start pulling HARD. You too Yuuki.)(try to pull Natalya into Sachiko afterwards or not if there is no string)>Marie, start firing now. (describe where the shots are going)>(once the shots get close) Raye NOW, Left flank. Yuuki, you free? do your stuff. >Yuu, Sakura shields up, Spawn some shadows. let's push forwards into the enemy.The stuff in parentheses are event dependent and stage directions. You don't need it in you dialogue QM. Also what does the Map look like before you call the vote? >>3388809What do you think anon. I was going to write up an outline of the battle plan but the first vote came in early.
>>3388957i honestly don't think it matters. For some bullshit reason marie won't be able to target the bitch pair, (even when she made the entry hole in the first place) and then when " all hope is lost" Arc will come to save our asses anyway and then we will be "shocked" from her turning into a shadow.The thread won't hurt yuuki.Remember that one of the ways to remove it was to turn Yuu into a shadow.Yuu can't heal us because we are still primarily a shadow and i'm not sure that telling yuu that we love her will have a positive impact. it might make her blank and go unconscious like last time.
>>3388984 Anon I thought of the Arc thing. shh...just let’s see what happens. That’s why I was thinking of going dark queen. I had a bit more emotion planned out in the write in as Junko is between a rock and a hard place and it occurred to her she might die. So there was some kind of goodbyes to all the girls in there. I’m not the happiest with how I wrote it out. I’m tired from staying up and my allergies are acting up. I’ll take a nap and see if I can write better. Also I should have probably mentioned that my vote is trying to use Tatical Mastery and all of the various modifiers with the girls.
>>3388984The thread thing is if a thread is what is keeping Yuuki from teleporting it goes to Natalya. Ever went fishing and caught a really big fish. They can pull you pretty hard and snap the line. Since N&S are in a line. I was thinking we could pull N into S to stop the assault. Then we would counterattack. N might have to stop her spell as there is one way in and out here. If we pull team bitch into us they would get trapped with us.
>>3389061Its just not fun when you can call what's going to happen and you are forced on taking an specific route because its what the plot demands. we can't use normal physics to our advantage, we can't be creative with out attacks because of reasons and our foes attacks completely disregard physics and basically can do whatever they need to do. the only thing for us to do is literally wait.>>3389069just like the first floor that was completely rigged for no reason, there will be a way for them to avoid being pulled by the lineI don't think the thread will work like that. It seems like whatever happened to her only managed to root her, because otherwise natalya or Yuuki would have pulled the other a long time ago.
>>3389094 I understand that. I was worried about things going down this sort of path. Railroading sucks because it makes your actions not matter. It was what I was complaining about last thread. I'm at least trying to contribute by at least trying to add something cool to the fight before the inevitable bad end or Arc reveal. >>3388785>>3388809>>3388984I feel too shitty to write right now and I don't like how my post>>3388957 came out. Here are my general notes. I know people will question why some stuff is in there but like I said earlier, I think it has occurred to Junko that she and possibly all her friends might die here. She wants to say goodbye but keep their spirits up because she is too stubborn to ever quit and wants to go out fighting.*mental call to marie. Junko tells her to attack the building blindly. Junko will be her eyes. She trusts Marie with her life--what she said in front of the mansion after the Yuu/Arc run-in. If it seems hard Mari and Mary or is it really Rika need to work together like Junko and Sakura. One views the outside of the building and fires, the other takes the descriptions and images Junko feeds into the mind link to help adjust the aim. Attacks from the right side of Junko. Junko tells them they are like her older and younger sister and they should never fight or fall to despair. To encourage them she ask for help to pick out one dress for someday: A simple white gown the implication being it is either for what could pass for a wedding Junko could have someday or for Junko's funeral--a kimono is too stuffy for her. *Junko asks Raye to get ready to use aoe firestorm on S&N from the left flank. Junko is sorry that Raye gets in trouble for having bad friends who don't understand Raye (the implication being Junko is one herself.) After this we will try to be a better friend to Raye our-self. (I had thought of this before the die a virgin comment--maybe Junko would approve of being pure?)*Junko asks Yuu to stop trying to heal Yuuki--it will only hurt the shadow. use buffs instead. Junko heals Yuuki with some of her corruption. Junko asks Yuuki to trust her. Everyone except S&N are friends here that includes Sakura. it seems like Rika could be in Marie We won't let Yuuki die alone. We all fight together. Examine Yuuki's condition with Sakura: probably find thread.*Junko tells Yuu how critical she will be in this fight. Since Junko can't be harmed by hope anymore, Yuu needs to heal Junko and keep her focused if dark queen is used Junko really, really does love Yuu. A kiss for good luck? Junko/Sakura hands Yuu the thread on Yuuki-either to pull N into S and towards the team or to get enough slack to free Yuuki. Junko tells Yuu that if Junko dies Yuu should take her hope essence and keep fighting. It's like the cliff we walk forward together forever, whatever comes of it. If we fall we fall together(1/2)
>>3389529(2/2)*Junko talks to Sakura. Time for complete honesty, nothing held back, two minds must fight as one. Sakura will take over fighting to start off Junko feeds info to Marie. Both must work together for this to work. Grab the string on Yuuki and show the other girls where it is or dispel Yuuki. bring up the black hole--if initial fighting fails Junko will charge it. Pulls in S's shots, draws S&N closer to their own killzone. Put Natalya's thread in the path of the black hole? Suck her in? Idea from Okada's mecameca wave: the black hole sucks a lot of energy in and it goes to the void? use it to make a quasar beam attack. Has the shadow of death dust in it? Try charging the black hole with corruption and hope, love and hate,ect. Give it everything in battle. Yuu will help with charge. If charging fails use the dark queen--tons of corruption energy, and pushes magical girls back. Have Yuu hug us from behind and the shadows hold Yuu, siphoning corruption to make up for the hope burning them.round 1: Junko/Sakura, Yuu, Raye, and Yuuki pull the thread to try to off-balance S&N. When Yuuki is free. Junko orders attacks from all sides. Marie-right, Raye-left, Yuuki-behind. Sakura takes over and advances forward tanking S with shields, meat-shields, and Yuu healing. Try to tie up S&N with signature attacks.Round 2.)Black hole, draw S&N toward us and death or make them flee to freedom. Yuu helps with charge. Other girls keep S&N bottled up, so everything is in a line. Try the beam attack.Round 3.)Dark Queen: Sakura and Junko get angry about what has happened and that friends will die and try to go super saiyan. Yuu holds us back so we don't destroy our friends world, just S&N's. If everything else didn't get Arc's attention this will. Try to turbo charge black hole. Tie up S with tentacle hair to expose N. Only half is dark. Try to use hope attacks with the other side.
>>3389529My problem with this is that the Yuu-junko write-ins fluff feel too out of character. Junko is naturally stoic and has more important things to worry about at the moment(basically getting all her friends and Yuuki alive and in one piece). Kissing Yuu or saying all the lovely-dovey stuff will only break her concentration from the madwoman that is trying to gun them down and will wast the scant seconds they have before the ice closes on them.Also, death stops being important when its being thrown around at every corner. This is specially important because, Kanna almost died in the morning and then the moms "died" and were "reborn" just a few hours ago. The brain simply runs out of hormones to make you feel something, which definitely is the case here. Maybe if they were fighting a few days before they could care, but not right now. And junko doesn't like dresses, period. That's one of the few hard rules that corruptor gave us about junko. Now that i look at it from another angle, we neither have the time to look for a thread. The ice dome is already covering most of the building and our only exit is in front of us. looking for it and hoping it will help us and not outright kill yuuki with a new bullshit power, is wasting time we don't really have.>>3389533the options take too much time. Sashiko only needs to keep us away and us trying to figure out new techniques or experimenting stuff is only giving her that time for free. Pushing forward while raye uses firestorm on them and Marie attacks in their general direction because for some reason she cant see the hole she made, and if there are more holes, why the fuck can't we escape through those? is the only real way we have to get out alive. Blackhole is the other one, but requires us to drop the shield.
>>3389680>Junko/Yuu:Yeah I shaved it down to a quick I love you in the actual write in for the exact reason of time. this was just my notes. Like a said, I think the real possibility of death is hitting Junko and it would be something important to want Yuu to know before they die. I didn't really think that Junko has become jaded toward death, but the psychological/neurochemical implecations of what the girls deal with is a good argument. I didn't think of it when I was writing out notes bleary eyed at whenever the last morning update was.The dress thing is a hard and fast rule i know It also got axed from the write in. Once again just dumped my notes. I always liked the purity white thing in wedding and Japanese funerals and Junko herself has a purity/impurity theming going on. It's something of a joke as Junko doesn't think she is getting out of this--I will never be Marie's dress up doll over my dead body. Well I guess i'm going to be dead soon so might as well make her pick out something somewhat tasteful.I would have phrased it like that or something. I dropped it in the final write in.>options Yeah, I know too much time. QM has already told us the obvious logical choices don't work because PLOT. I mean if Marie's vision is obscured, why dosen't she cut thought the floor of the building she is standing on, so she is level with the third floor. She figured out that trick during the Arc fight. PLOT. So I was aiming for magical bs/cool? stuff since time is abstracted down to turns.You know Yuu could move the shields thaks to BFF while Junko does the charging. We should use our abilities I am trying to use Tactical Mastery from last thread. The situation seems dangerous enough. I just forgot to spell it out. I guess I did now.
>>3389680>Pushing forward while raye uses firestorm on them and Marie attacks in their general directionAlso that is my turn 1 and why it is the first option. Sakura’s specials are the best for pushing forward so that’s why I added her in. Turns 2&3 are desperation.
>>3389778No problem, I get it when someone just dumps notes. I've done it before and well, its a hard and fast way to get all of your ideas out and then you worry out about clearing the mess later on.>use Tactical MasteryI guess we could use it to push the shield and ram sashiko or natalya. we'd get the inherited minimal bonus of -15, plus all the others small bonuses...-5 because we are fighting with Yuu, another -10 because sakura has input on them... another -5 because we have the empowered bonus, for a nice total of -35.>>3389793i hope we can end this in one turn. we only need to literally run in one direction. it shouldn't take us more unless PLOT happens which probably will be the case.
>>3389833I feel like it's less PLOT and more the situation wasn't conveyed clearly enough for posters to make informed decisions. Even if the place was supposed to be rigged, there should at least be subtle meta warnings. This kind of out of nowhere issue works better in books than collaborative stories.
>>3390094>I feel like it's less PLOT and more the situation wasn't conveyed clearly enough for posters to make informed decisions.I feels it falls somewhere between A and B.I mean, would you really leave your partner to fight a dangerous shadow alone, just to booby trap the lower and upper floors just because you might be ambushed by someone you just killed and another person that will be frantically looking for their mother?
>>3388785to make it clear I didn't mention it in >>3388957this is what I am tying to set up:>>use Tactical Mastery>I guess we could use it to push the shield and ram sashiko or natalya. we'd get the inherited minimal bonus of -15, plus all the others small bonuses...-5 because we are fighting with Yuu, another -10 because sakura has input on them... another -5 because we have the empowered bonus, for a nice total of -35.
Alright just give me some time to sift your write ins>Yuu I love you....Critical hit. Yuu is incapacitated in this battle. Her last words were>"I have no regrets. I can now die with Junko peacefully"Although Raye has different opinions which fall on the deaf ears. Meanwhile Marie in the distance, hears the words. She salute and uttered her last words.>"Take that Raye. Team white Lily wins. I will write a novel worthy to be told all around the world."The end
>>3390169i think most of us can agree on this>>3390159
>>3390187Yep the map is the same last time above. I'm just going to post it again.
>>3388298>>3390187I personally feel like we could just splash them with water to make everything there backfire, but I can go along with it.My own suggestion if my brain wasn't going blargh all day would have been to have Marie shoot randomly and use our mental link as a range finder so that she uses the last turn to shoot a massive amount of attacks directly at them.
>>3390253A hose would technically work too I suppose? They need one for making the concrete wet anyway.
>>3390259>>3390253I don't get it. Why throw them water? that would only make them wet. the ice is forming outside the building.>have Marie shoot randomly and use our mental link as a range finder The problem isn't that marie can't hit the mark. she definitely can. The problem is that this is a quantum building and marie can see and not see at the same time on the floor, even if two of them are on the hole she created. And if we order an strike right now, the chances of one of the explosions hitting us in the middle of the charge are almost assured.
>>3390283>>3390294They're chucking magical ice everywhere. if they're wet, then the ice (and the cold) is going to spread to them first because it's going to also freeze the water that's soaked into their clothing. Think of it similarly to how you don't stand in a puddle when there's electricity going around since it's working on the same idea. If that doesn't go for you. Imagine being sopping wet and then having to walk into a giant freezer like they're currently doing to the building. They're human. They can freeze to death. We (probably) can't.
>>3390315And now that they're wet you can just make more water connected to them in some way like a puddle that the local person with ice guns can just shoot instead of them to freeze the pair.
>>3390315i got your description fine(and the idea behind it as well), its just that i understood from the text was that the ice was growing from the ground up and not specifically from natalya herself.
>>3390324That can work as well, but i'd rather use the three turns we have on getting out from this "instant death trap".
>>3390326I figured it would make them pause any ideas about spamming ice that can accidentally hit them too as well as >>3390324 to basically negate Natayla's main offense.
>>3390324i originally didn't know where we could get the water from but the building might have a fire sprinkler system. I'm willing to try stuff.
>>3390353if the building is under construction there should be water nearby, but we would be wasting turns on hauling the water while avoiding sashikos shots. Using fire yields a similar effect, but i'd rather get out of here with the bonus of tactical leader than trying to set them on fire/get them wet.
Sorry about the delay. I was talking to a carpenter who will fix my door since I kinda kick the door for me to get inside. Currently just arrived after buying a door knob and some plywood and now my door is being fixed....So what i see is,,,>Use Tactical Leader>Summon 7 shadowshades to take off the pressure>Raye uses fire storm>Charge to themAnyway writing.

>>3390437>"Marie! Can you see the third floor from here?"\>"I do but I cannot see two thirds on the way. I can barely see you shield here. Maybe they are behind the concrete wall I destroyed?">"Then can you try and use you explosive arrows on the ice. It could break.">"I'll try."Marie aims to the ice on the wall.

We welcome you to our 5 star restaurant where we guarantee you a scenery you wont forget. Infact the scenery so good that you can see a girl flying the sky."T-thats impossible proprietor. Haha...""Well yeah, in fact we offer you free of charge if you see one.""HeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLpppppppppp"The three of you budge your eyes as you see a group of girls flying on the window."Your meal is now free..... enjoy the night."You kiss your wife again. How lucky your honeymoon is.........After several buildings, billboards, water tanks, rooftop aircons and a statue mascot which you don't know what it is, you all drop down near the slums where you stay back then. Everyone was exhausted and all stay down to have a breather. After a little while you stand up albeit shakily."Let's not do that again""What? That was fun.""No Yuu, that wasn't fun.""So what are we gonna do with Yuuki?"You see Yuuki lie down sleeping. Hmm...>>Go somewhere (where?)>>Do something (what?)>>Train (what?)>>Investigate (who?)>>Write-in
>>3390789>Marie where did they go?
>>3390789>"Sakura, inspect Yuuki for any trackers. I think I should talk to her when she wakes up Sakura." >"Girls, we could bring her to the mansion or call out Mako to give her a charge.">"We need to recharge ourselves. Kanna's brother is still held hostage" Raye call Okada. tell him to help us out and to send some shadows over to dock's were Kanna's brother is being held. I want to figure out if that is a trap too.">"Marie, where did those bitches go to?"
>>3390789>>3390806forgot to add. >Junko gives a small heal to Yuuki, shadow first aid.
...we shouldn't be that tired. the only thing we did was to run and nothing else.>>3390806Either way, lets bring mako to our position to recharge ourselves while okada sends his shadows to scout the warehouse. If we are lucky, Nat and sashiko will go there (and will be in a worse state than us because not only they tried to ice a whole building, they also fought yuuki beforehand and they can't recharge like the shadows).
>>3390820As much as I want to push the issue and kill or incapacitate Natalya. We really need Kanna back before we enter the warehouse. We could have Okada and Mako's shadows siege them out.I have a feeling that S&N will be close to their hostage anyway. So that's why I want the shadows to sweep the area before we go in.
>>3390843but one of the brother's probable locations is the warehouse. N&S are tired, exhausted and we have mako that can recharge all of us but Yuu. Right now is the moment to hunt down whatever places they might use as a hideout. hell, we should tell okada to initiate a police manhunt against both girls for being "terrorists". Nowhere will be safe for them.
>>3390789>Sakura said something about a thread. We need to make sure there isn't a bomb on her like there was on Yuu/You. >Ask Sakura how to do a barrier like at the mansion.We can setup places to ambush them like they tried with us.>They seem to be working almost entirely on ambushes. We need more than our small group to hunt them down . (shadow army)I got an idea but I wanna see what you guys think of it. Natayla likes kidnapping and there's been a ton of kidnapping cases lately in addition to probably summoning interpol for terrorism. Clearly she needs to become implicated as a person of interest in the spate of recent kidnappings (and that son of a police officer that we gave cement shoes). Onii-chan is less of a hostage/danger with a SWAT team breaking down their doors than with us. ssuming that they don't outright kill the swat team and cause the military to start hunting terrorists, they would have to decide between ditching the warehouse that they (probably) have him hostage at, or standing their ground and becoming the most famous international terrorists on the planet. The police would think Onii-chan might be the officer's son so they'll be less trigger happy and prone to accidentally killing him. The pair can erase memories but they can't erase all of the people in support/logistics that are also helping out the operation remotely.>>3390820Mako can easily be mistaken for one of us and they'd shoot first before checking on who she really is. Even if they did realize she wasn't one of us, Sachiko would try to absorb her powers since they would be a significant upgrade. (this is going under the assumption that Sachiko is too stupid to be able to do actual experiments and/or vivisection. If Mako moves before those two are dead or at nighttime it should be from one shielded safehouse to another while protected and possibly with a vehicle that a barrier is installed on.
>>3390893Natayla's "mercenary" work is probably infamous enough to get her on an international watchlist if she thinks so little of doing an airplane bombing.
>>3390893I support asking Sakura about creating barrier. I've been voting for it since thread five. It would let us move Okada around freely. We could use the Yacht as a mobile base of operations. Make safehouses and ambush points of our own.We might want to regroup at the mansion too. I forgot Marie is back at the battle site.
>>3390893>Mako can easily be mistaken for one of us and they'd shoot first before checking on who she really is.she won't be with us. my idea is that she comes in a nondescript van, we jump in, get recharged, leave near wherever we want to go and she returns to the mansion. At no moment she will be in harm's way unless THE PLOT demands that N&S become stupid again and attack a random van that might as well be an uber or a taxi.>Clearly she needs to become implicated as a person of interest We can do that with a single call from okada. Both are literally terrorists and the goverment of japan(and many others) will do anything to have those two behind bars or dead. >>3390925>I forgot Marie is back at the battle site.Hopefully she saw where the duo went.>We might want to regroup at the mansion too.We should strike while the iron is hot. I don't wan't to fight them at a 100% again and mako can move to our position. Lets use the resources that we have and hinder their capacity to regroup.
They aren't very good mercenaries, really...
>>3390946We were point blank in front of Mako and we could barely tell she wasn't a shadow before.If they see a giant mass of corruption walking past them when all the shadows they know of are trying to kill them, they would have to be incompetent buffoons to leave her be. The immediate assumption would be that she's a powerful shadow and if they don't shoot her it would be to follow her. Once they see she's with us, she gets targeted or booby trapped as she can't see magic.>>3390959Only Nat is the mercenary and she's outnumbered by people she didn't even know would be there with her cover immediately blown so that she can't properly plan or set traps. The fact that she hasn't died from every magical element in the city being out for her blood is a miracle.I wonder if Natayla even has a way to hide from Ace detective Yuu's tracking spells?
>>3390986>point blank in front of Mako and we could barely tell she wasn't a shadowI'm starting to wonder if giving her the last push over would be that bad for her. It seems like she is almost immune to corruption now, so she might be like us if she becomes a shadow.
>>3390986>We were point blank in front of Mako and we could barely tell she wasn't a shadow before.>If they see a giant mass of corruption walking past them when all the shadows they know of are trying to kill them, they would have to be incompetent buffoons to leave her be. you already said that we can't see the beacon of corruption that mako is until we released her grief. she is safe. Like i said before, the only way that N&S find her out is if THE PLOT wills it. >>3390996I wouldn't risk it. Also, Junko's not like that.
>>3391000>I wouldn't risk it. Also, Junko's not like that.I agree, if we were ripping her soul out like we do with normal shadows. I was just pointing out that newer entries makes it sound like we as an audience overreacted to Mako and her corruption predicament. The standard process might not apply to her. I still don't want to risk it.
>>3391000Even when we visited her house it was highly conspicuous because all of the corruption for several blocks was waltzing towards her. It's a goddamn miracle that none of the MG groups managed to notice her when she was alive. I do not remotely get how you think she isn't a giant batch of neon floodlights. At least before everyone wasn't constantly scanning, but now everyone s doing sonar blips.>>3391013We'd need a light core at the least to maintain her soul, we have little idea of the process used to make anyone the way we are, and it might be a waste to do that anyway since if she was a MG she might be able to just keep on spamming mass purification as the shadows keep coming like she's a magical bug zapper.
>>3391028 >Even when we visited her house it was highly conspicuous because all of the corruption for several blocks was waltzing towards her.>I do not remotely get how you think she isn't a giant batch of neon floodlights.I can't find the specific part where it says that Mako was draining the corruption of several blocks. from what i remember, it was houses.Regardless, it takes several days for that to become apparent(given that the restaurants she worked on closed after three months. she will be moving, which means that her draining effect won't be as visible (specially if she's moving in vehicles that move at very fast speeds) and its visibility depends on the amount of corruption. She is rather visible on the slums, but close to invisible in other zones. Also, she has been living in this city long enough that at this point she might be confused by the myriad of corruption points that are in the city. If she were that important or unique, she would have be hunted down way before these events.>It's a goddamn miracle that none of the MG groups managed to notice her when she was alive. She's still alive and very much human.
>*Undisclosed location somewhere near the city center.*Two vans were driving through a small gate. The two vehicles barely fit when parked. Opening the door first was Mako and her sisters who are excited to see their new home."Onee look! A big house."It was a two storey with the third floor as a rooftop. According to Okada. There is a retractable roof that could be pushed with a button. The 3 younger sisters of Mako rushes inside who can't wait to see what the room looks like."Ah so noisy, I can't believe we have kids who will babysit."Then it was the mother's. Mrs. Kurosaki and Mitsukoshi. They look at Mako who is already bowing."S-sorry...p-please take care of m-my s-s-sisters ""Now, now Mitsukoshi-san. Don't scare the girl. There there.Mrs. Kurosaki soothes Mako who is shakily bowing at them. Then the three go inside."Onee look they have a biiiiiiiig T.V.""Let's watch it later okay?" Mako pats Ako's head."And they have a biiiiiiiig bed""Isn't it nice Chika?" Mako also pats her head."And I found a biiiiiiiig snake.....look""Awwww that-..........""........."".........""........."Then everyone panics why the youngest sister has a snake wrapped in her body. Nevertheless, it was a day they will never forget..........>Okada's Office"Alright, say to the director that if the shares will never raise to 25% next week then consider himself fired."You drop the call as you lean exhausted on the chair. Then you remember something."Did I ever took out all of my exotic animals on that house Mako sisters are staying? Hmmmm.....Well I guess I may have but what is this sensation I feeling right now........What would my queen would do in this situation."Then another call broke your train of thought. You pick it up as another problem is presented again. Just a normal day in an office.next run will be on Sunday. See you tomorrow
>>3394584Tomorrow is April Fools Day. Are you interested in a special episode? I'm going to make a separate thread for this.>>3390799>>3390806>>3390817>>3390893Writing
>>3396344"Marie, where did those bitches go to?""I saw them go east. There are only few places there, either the outskirts of the cities or to the mountains.""Come to my position now.""Alright, I'll see you there."You go to Yuuki and carry her where you lean her on a broken concrete pillar. She stirs for a bit but didn't wake up.>"Sakura, can we destroy the thread?"Easily, now that I scanned it. It was a debilitating thread. No wonder she can't teleport out. I would suggest not to remove it for now so she can't escape. Don't worry, it's not dangerous.You stand up and face the girls."Girls, we could bring her to the mansion or call out Mako to give her a charge.""My queen, Okada says that she is currently moving with your sisters along with your mother on another safehouse.""I see, then let's go.">"Marie, go back to the mansion.">"Understood."Your group then go to the mansion carrying the unconscious Yuuki and your group....................Arriving the mansion, you go to your room and put Yuuki to sleep. Yuu nreaks up with you to check up her mother on the new safehouse which Raye happily guides. Marie goes to her room to take a rest.Junko, we should wait for Mako to arrive. I have a plan to make her one with us.>"What is it?"There are some options. We urge her to join us, if not talk her about it and if that doesn't work then we just going to show her who is the boss.>"Any other options?"There is one but you wouldn't like it.>"Will you clue me in?"Scissors>"Huh?"Yep, stay pure for us Junko. You precious in this world.>Wake her up now>Wait for Mako to wake her up>Go to Okada for the meantime>Go to the safehouse your mother moved in>Write-in
>>3396477>Send Mom a quick text message that Yuu and Raye are on their way to visit. How is the new house?>Go to Okada for the meantime>Update him on how the battle went. Ask if he has any new info about Sachiko and Natalya? Did he find anything on that real estate deal or your mother's credit cards and travel papers? We need some shadows to surveil where Kanna's brother is hidden.>Ask Okada if he had a chance to talk to Marie about her corruptive impulses. Since we have some free time it might be a good time to try to work with her.>Afterwards, Check in with Marie.
>>3396477>I guess I will support this >>3396540
>>3396540>>3396638Slow day huh....writing.
>>3396646Fishing out your phone, you text your mother that Yuu and Raye will come over there. They probably arrived by now but you still send one. You also add "how is the house?" you end it with loves and kisses. Hopefully she would reply soon. For the meantime, you go to Okada's office where he is currently calling someone on the phone. When he noticed you, he drops the call and faces you."My queen, something is happening.""What was it?""I got a hold on some information about other magical groups in another country. Seems they want to visit our city due to.....rampaging energies of corruption these past few months.""Wait how did you hold such kind of information.""Connections my queen. I just got them last week. I didn't really use it in fear that they might strike me because of what I am.""Hmmm.....we can use this to our advantage. Keep them in tabs. Maybe we can use this to target Sachiko if push comes to shove.""True.....anyway, I have the papers and some documents from the one named Mrs. Yumegawa. She was already out of the country 2 days ago. She was a scientist who studies the psychological aspect of human being. To be honest, I don't know what that means. But if is possible that she and her daughter are in cahoots. For now I have used my connections on where she could have been staying abroad.""Keep at it then, what about the brother of Kanna?""We scouted the area and we didn't bother to get close as it could possibly trigger something that would harm him. Also the hospital called that Kanna is now in stable condition and she is just recovering her energy. She was very weak so to say.""I may going to visit her again. Anything more to report?""I sent the shadowspectre to track the duo to their hideout. I'll call you if I have any leads.""Alright, Okada. Did you speak with your niece?""I do, but it seems to be that we don't know how to approach each other. Marie would speak some jokes, drag me and dress in her clothes among others. I just nod and laugh but I don't....really know how. Human emotions really are such complicated thing.""I know that you are just a shadow who just discovered all these things but if you are overwhelmed, you can take it slowly.""Thanks my queen. I'll do my best.">Go to you mother's home>Check with Marie>Stay with Okada and inquire some more (what?)>Go back to your room and speak with Yuuki>Write-in
>>3396777>Send text messages to Yuu. "How is momma and the girls? I got some interesting info from Okada. Seems more magical groups are interested in the city. Mrs. Yumegawa is a psychological researcher of some sort. Can you ask Raye if her memories have improved? We might need to ask her parents if they met Mrs Yumegawa professionally. Keep in contact with me.">Check up with Marie. Thank her for all her help and friendship. Ssk to try meditating with her, so we might be able to communicate with her inner shadow--like Junko can communicate with Sakura.
>>3396777>>Check with MarieWhy not.
>>3396777>>3396866Forgot to add one more message for Yuu.>Kanna is stable, but weak. we need to get her brother back and visit her again.
>>3396777>>Check with Marie
>>3396777>Go to the warehouse and save the brotherWe have a location and the girls aren't nearby, so we have enough time to carefully comb the area and rescue the brother. If we take any longer, the brother might die from dehydration or the pair will return and ship him away.
>>3396947"I'll see you again Okada."You leave him on his own devices and exit on his office. You get your phone and text Yuu in the meantime."How is momma and the girls? I got some interesting info from Okada. Seems more magical groups are interested in the city. Mrs. Yumegawa is a psychological researcher of some sort. Can you ask Raye if her memories have improved? We might need to ask her parents if they met Mrs Yumegawa professionally. Also Kanna is stable, but weak. we need to get her brother back and visit her again.Keep in contact with me."Then you visit Marie in her room. Knocking three times, she didn't answer. You excuse yourself by announcing and enter her room. Looking at the room, it was littered with different kinds of dress, make up and some shoes. You tip toe each and everyone until you see her in the bed sleeping.>Leave her be>Go somewhere (where?)>Do something (what?)>Write-in
>>3397096Gonna cook something to eat. Be right back
>>3397096>Leave her be>Talk with about the possibility of several magical girls pooling up their hope energies and jump starting a new MG.
>>3397096>Find the hair brush, Junko used on Mary all the way back.>Wake Marie up gently and offer to brush her hair.>"Marie, I've been really worried for you ever since you came to me and told me you were a full shadow. You're my friend and you matter to me. I wish I could spend more time with you like this, but it's been one constant emergency to another, lately. I want to see if we can talk to your inner-shadow through meditation. It worked for me. After that we will see what happens. I don't want to force you into anything you wouldn't want, Marie, but I'm not going to leave you to lose control of yourself." >Leave your phone out to see if messages come back in.
>Leave her be
>>3397174huh, forgot to add "sakura"to my text
>>3397174>>3397177>>3397199>>3397328>>3397218You leave her be for a moment and go back to your room. Yuuki is still sleeping so you elect to have a conversation with Sakura.>"You heard what Okada said right?"Yes, although this worries me after all. I hope that someone would try not to urge to come here. To be honest, I cannot fault you on something that already happened. All we can do is to adapt to the situation and hopefully it won't come to something worse.>"To be honest, I just want this to end. I.....want to do something."Like what?>"I....want to be a public servant. A city mayor maybe running for governor of the town. Back then, me and Yuu would go play like some kind of pretend where I am the president and I would decree that there will be free food which Yuu happily cheers. Now that I think about it, I could be one as long as I get the criteria for being a candidate."I remember Yuuki wants to be one too. Studying law early to get her a great starting point was very taxing to her. Yet she enjoyed it because she wants to become a lawyer. Even she wouldn't be a Magical Girl, she want to help people not with destruction but with words. Maybe that is why Sachiko took advantage because she was so good in public speaking and trying to weave with words which me and Rika would undoubtedly agree to it. Still I should have trusted my friends more that her. It hurts me everyday that I am reminded of my mistakes.>"It's alright, we will get her back someday.Junko, I also have another confession to make>"What was it."After this....I don't know what would I be after I finish my revenge. And I also worry that we merge or maybe we didn't. But I know it will affect your body.>"What do you mean."I'm thinking.....If I take all of the darkness with me, you will be a normal magical girl again. But I empowered you with darkness. Both in life and soul. I'm afraid that one day when that time comes.....It may also affect you.You both stay silent as the sounds of Yuuki breathing carries to your ears. You just close your eyes and say.....>"We will get there one day Sakura. For now, let's focus our objectives for now."S-sorry for that.>"Don't be."Then Mako arrives at your room who bows at you."You needed me my queen?>Mako, we may need your energy to empower Yuuki>Mako, we may need your energy to empower Marie>No, return to your duties>Go to hospital and visit Kanna>Call your available team and mount a rescue mission to save Kanna's brother.>Write-in
>>3397404>Mako, glad to see you back. Where is Yuu and Raye? There is a couple of matters we need to get too. Marie is tired and needs some help.>Call a team meeting. Go over Sakura's plans for Yuuki and what to do to save Kanna's brother.
"Mako, glad to see you back. Where is Yuu and Raye?""Ah! They're busy wrangling something.""Something?".................."MOM DON'T STOP ME!!""NO I WILL NEVER LET YOU GO!""STOP I WILL GO INSIDE.""YUU!! YOU ARE TOO YOUNG TO DIE.""I WILL NOT DIE MOM I JUST WANT TO GET THE PHONE BACK!!"Yuu pries open the mouth of an alligator when your phone slipped to your fingers as you try to reply Junko. And with bad luck, it shoots though the mouth of an alligator."I mean why would be an alligator be here of all places?""Yuu I'm begging you, stop this.""Noooooooo! That is my matching phone with Junko!""We will just buy a new one!""NO CAN DO!! THAT IS IMPORTANT."Then Yuu dives to the alligator mouth as you pry open it with your feet."Young lady that position is inappropriate, you can see your bum to the whole world.""W'er inshid ti 'ouse."Then the alligator mouth snaps close."NOOOOOOO YUUUUUUUU"Mrs. Mitsukoshi valiantly tries to open the alligators mouth. Then something breaks on her back."Ack! my back.....help......Kurosaki-san my back...."..................."Okada keep exotic pets? In that house?""Ah don't worry, Master Yuu and Master Raye is currently doing their best to wrangle all of them. I called the animal shelter to deliver them to the zoo that Okada owns.""I......see. Hopefully they are alright.Back at the house."NO I'M NOT ALRIGHT IT'S TOO DARK IN HERE!! Oh my phone....."Anyway, there is a couple of matter we need to get too. Marie is tired and needs some help. Let's go to her room.You go to Marie's room who is now snoring loudly on her room. You urge Mako to come with you. Then you instruct her."Mako, hold you hand out to her hand and hold it. Yes, that is right....now close your eyes, visualize a water........now what do you see?""A....black goo?""Yes now flow it to your arms and into your palm."Mako tries to do what you say, until you feel a thrum of corruption. Even though it is raw, it still a corruption. Marie tired expression now turns into a smile giving a relaxed sigh. You tap Mako's shoulder and nods which she stop. Thinking about it, you should save Kanna's brother but Yuu and Raye are busy doing something at your new mother's and mako sisters house. Marie will be waking up in a little bit and Yuuki is still at the room.>Wait for Raye and Yuu to come here>Wake Marie up and fetch Yuu and Raye here>Go to Okada and order her shadowspectre to take care of his mess in the new safehouse.>Go to the hospital for the moment and speak with Kanna>Write-in
>>3397459>Mako, there is a new girl in my room. If she wakes up call me right away.>Wake up Marie, Yuu and Raye aren't back yet. I'm worried. We need to have a team meeting and there is something I want to talk to you about in private later.>Okada, get a car for us we are going over to your safehouse. There might be trouble.
>>3397459>Okada, can you give me the phone number of the safehouse? I wanna check if they are fine.>Mako, there is a new girl in my room. If she wakes up call me right away.
>Yuu's inside the alligatorWell, she's dead. either the acid, the pressure, the putrid smell or the lack breathable air will get her.
>>3397512"Mako, there is a new girl in my room. If she wakes up call me right away.""Yes my queen."You then go to Okada which you just peek your head on the door."Okada, get a car for us. We are going over to your safehouse. There might be trouble.""Us?""Yes....us.""B-but my queen, it would be akin of something like a radar if I come with you.""Fine....at east give me the phone number of the safehouse. I wanna check if they are fine."Okada gives you the number of the safehouse that you want to go. Then you try to call it. After three rings, a familiar sound is on the end of the phone with the most monotone voice ever."Okada animal wrangling services how can I help you....""Yuu, I heard something about wrangling animals. What is happening there? Are you fine?""Yes, got almost eaten by an alligator in fact. But thanks to that show about survival in the jungle. I just press something that would let the alligator vomit me out. I'm.....I feel that even a million show will never make me feel clean.""I......see. Can you come here?""Give me a moment and I will be there with RaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAye""What is happening.""GOD DAMN IT RAYE!! I'LL KILL YOU!!"You hear a phone dropping and someone's running. Then a squeal and a shout. Then silence."Anyway, we will be there okay? Bye."The phone call ends and you elect to go and wake Marie up. (1/2)
>>3397551..............An hour later and all of them are here. Yuu smell really permeates the room with unknown smell."Yeah yeah......I know." Yuu grumbles..."L-let's start this meeting anyway. Okada reports that Kanna is in stable condition albeit weak. We should find something that would replenish her energy. Yuu is the only source of our hope energy and I hope that we could find something that would speed the progress.""What about getting it on her bag?" Raye inquires...."That is for Yuu to decide. Anyway according to the reports. He was held on some small house near the industrial zone. We don't know if there are invisible traps place there. I don't want to walk there blind again.""Then we should go to Kanna, she may be weak but her eyes would prove to be useful." Marie suggests."True, but we want to speed her recovery. And we don't know if Sachiko and Natalya are going there." Yuu speaks...."No, they were going on the outskirts of the city. We don't know the exact location. Okada will fill us with details ones he has more info.""Then what would it be Junko? Bring Kanna with us or not?" Yuu inquires...."Also there is the one who we rescued. I think this is on you. Last time she would try to attack us.""That was not the one. We rescued her two times already. It was the one who likes risque underwear." Raye speaks...."We will speak to her when we gonna meet her. We need all allies we can get. Please don't throw or do something that may antagonize her please.">Go with the rescue mission>Go to the hospital to fetch Kanna and go to rescue mission>Hold the rescue mission for a moment and talk to Yuuki>Write-in
>>3397554>Go to the hospital to fetch Kanna and go to rescue mission>On the way there talk with sakura about jumpstarting a magical girl without a hope core.
>>3397554>Girls here's the plan. We are going forward with the rescue mission tonight. We could use all the help we could get. That includes Kanna and Yuuki. Yuu, Raye, get some blankets, water, warm clothes, what ever you can think of to keep Kanna safe. We need her eyes. Yuu if you want to use your bag, do it. If you could find it all the mansion that would be the best. I don't know what Yuuki will do.">"Marie and I will talk to Yuuki. Marie knows binding magic now so if push comes to shove we could knock her out for awhile again. I don't want that to happen. We could really use the extra hands.">"I want to try and get a move on asap."
>>3397617"Girls here's the plan. We are going forward with the rescue mission tonight. We could use all the help we could get. That includes Kanna and Yuuki.

We could really use the extra hands.""We'll find some what you said Junko." Yuu comments."How about you go back to the bath for now? It really stinks."The whole room now smells like something rotten. Yuu immediately darts away from the room yet the smell stays."Would Okada permit to just....burn everything here?""Just give it some ventilation and it will go away."Filing out of the room you go back to where Yuuki sleeps. Mako sits on the chair knitting something."Oh my queen! Yuuki still asleep. I'm just making something to kill time."Then you notice that her fingers have different kinds of pricks."Thanks Mako, go to Raye and have that bandaged."Mako looks at her fingers and just nods. You go to where Yuuki sleeps.>Will you transform as Sakura to speak with Yuuki or not?>Yes>NoThat's all for today and see you tomorrow!
>>3397632>No, Start the conversation as Junko. Let's get a feel for how Yuuki thinks. Tell her that Sachiko and Natalya have started attacking civilians and we need her help for a rescue mission for a sweet little girl's older brother. Us shadows should stick together. It's much nicer to have a hideout with good food and warm beds than to slink from abandoned building to construction site. That's no way to live. Let Sakura give whatever input she wants though.Depending on how she responds, we can tell Yuuki that we work with Sakura. Sakura was very concerned for Yuuki and despiratly wanted to save her. It's clear how Sakura regrets what happened and trying to make it up to her. Junko could tell Yuuki about getting revenge on Mari--How Mari was just being used by Sachiko too. That Mari killed us and by hurting her we solved nothing. The pain didn't go away, what was done was done. Mari had help killed Junko but it was clear she was sorry for her actions and she made up for it by saving Junko's life later. All we accomplished by lashing out at Marie was making our friend's life worse and Junko has a bigger problem to solve now for it (corruptive impulses). After the mission we can let Sakua and Yuuki work out their issues.Night QM.
>>3399554"Step back for a bit Mako, she may lash out on you. Marie, ready your bind spell""Oooooooooh~ Kinky.""Mind out of the gutter, ready when I say so...."You gently wake up Yuuki and she starts to stirs up. Slowly, her eyes open and saw you again."You.......""Yes I am that same girl that save you.....twice now.""I see......""Tell me, are you Yuuki?""No, my name is Nei....""Alright Nei, I know this is intimidating at first but I know when I see a shadow when I see one. You may see me something like a Magical Girl too who hunts them but in reality.....I'm also one of you. A shadow too. And I won't mince words but we need your help. Sachiko and Natalya have started attacking civilians and we need your help for a rescue mission for a sweet little girl's older brother. Us shadows should stick together. It's much nicer to have a hideout with good food and warm beds than to slink from abandoned building to construction site. That's no way to live. At least there is safety in number.""Can I talk to the shadow inside my head?""Sure, take your time. Raye! Go fetch her something to eat and drink.""Yes my queen."You go to the group who is watching Yuuki talk to herself."Say Junko, what will we do if she refuses." Yuu speaks..."Yeah, we need more people if we have to gang up with Sachiko." Marie comments...>We just need to show that we are dead set on one thing. Kill Sachiko>If push comes to shove, me and Marie will do our old school ways.....corrupting her into submission>We let her go, She'll come to us if she really needed help anyway.>Write-in
>>3399671>"We make sure Nei and Yuuki hear us out. Nei seems like the kind of girl we want to help out. As for Yuuki, Sakura was mad when she first started talking to me.

Stewing in pure corruption in the void does things to people., I remember what it was like for me. I could only imagine what it would be like to be down there for years. It might take time but she came back to her senses.

Who is this girl?""AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH SO CUTE PLEASE BE MY LITTLE SISTER!!"Great.....another little sister complex"S-Senpai PLEASE HELP MEEEEeeeee""Yuuki please stop molesting our member!"It took a lot of pulling and gentle push from Kanna to pry off from her ironclad grip. You were already contemplating getting a crowbar but good thing it didn't come to that."Kanna, we need your eyes. That is why we are bringing you to where you brother possibly is.""Sure.....please carr-""I'LL CARRY HER!!" Yuuki immediately raises her hand volunteering.>Let Yuuki carry Kanna>Let Yuu carry Kanna>Let Marie carry Kanna>You carry Kanna

Kanna if you need anything let us know.">"Yuuki, I know you don't do orders but wait up for us and come along. We don't know what we are walking into yet.

There you let Marie look at the distance if there is any people outside."Nothing on there Junko." Marie reports...."So what kind of boy are we looking anyway?" Yuuki asks....."Looks like in high school?" Marie responds..."Yeah....then be right back." Yuuki immediately teleports."WAIT DON'T"roll 1d100 to see who Yuuki bring.

>>3403261>>3403266>>3403269>>3403278>>3403283You asked Mako if she seen Yuuki, she points you at the library which she guides you. You enter the vast books where you see Yuuki burying herself in piles of books."Sorry to interrupt Yuuki but you want me to tell about Natalya?""Oh? Did I? Hmmmm....say what do you want to know?""All of them if you could.""Alright.....Before Sachiko came into our group, she was just a newly minted girl who was sent here to have some kind of examination. She has a "battle sister" as she called. Her name was Arc. She and Arc are part of some kind of organization that I don't want to know. And don't be fooled that she is part of Russian military. That is just her gig. A freaking military otaku. She is just a college student nothing else. Although I would agree to her being a mercenary. She would hang out with mafias and gangs for money....or at least I was told. She told me some of her skill since we have similar power. Except that I use guns to cast my power, she uses hands directly. I only have limited skills back then and she helped me to expand my skills since she has crazy ideas. It worked though. Anyway, so when she was in danger and we go to rescue her, then I saw her with Sachiko. Sachiko saved Natalya from whatever shadow attacked them. And Arc unconscious."Wait...so Arc and Natalya attacked a shadow and?""Well I don't know the events, but we just surprised that we have a new magical girl in-front of us. And so young too. It could be our fault that we didn't asked what happened to them as Natalya haul Arc away and disappeared. Maybe she is now pulling favors now. Any questions?">Do you have anything to ask about Natalya? (Write-in)
(Slow night huh...we will continue this tomorrow. I will also include the write-ins about the news and Marie possible therapy.)
>>3403453Sorry, still writing the questions, but I had to check some things in thread seven and four first.>Thanks for running QM
>>3403414>"Yeah I doubted Natalya was a real operator, the girl seems way too sloppy to be a real spy or military asset. They would think twice about throwing magical ice and explosions around in a foreign nation and still being around when the evidence comes to light. Do you know how deep her connections run? What sort of gangs are we talking about here? We might be able to hit her backers.">"Why hasn't Sachiko just wasted Natalya for her powers yet? Friendship hasn't stopped Sachiko in the past. Could Natalya have some leverage on Sachiko? Maybe, we could turn them against one another. If this is all a contract to Natalya could we buy her out, or just pretend to for the sake of a ambush on Natalya alone?">"Yuuki, describe this "Arc" girl. There is this other girl in the city; we've bumped into her a couple of times now but she doesn't seem to be working with Natalya or Sachiko now. Could something have happened?">"Does the name Tsugawa Tomoko ring a bell, who is she? Do you know anything about Sachiko's mother? She is a psychological researcher of some sort. What about her father or fathers, the mother remarried at some point?">"Sakura mentioned she saw Sachiko defeating a powerful shadow, and that she had fought Natalya in the past, but she never mentioned working with Natalya, an Arc, an Organization, or anything about an examination. How do you know all this? Where did you meet Natalya? How were you friendly with her, while she was trying to kidnap Sakura. I won't judge you, Yuuki. The past is the past, what matters is moving forward.">"When I saw you first fighting with Sachiko she said you took something important from her. What happened? You seemed to be talking about a man. He seemed important to Sachiko...important enough to fight and kill over. What the HELL is all this about? I had no part in any of this. Why did she fucking kill me? Yuuki, I need answers. I need to understand why Sachiko is doing all this to anticipate her next move. Please don't hold information back from me I just want to help both of us.">"Yuuki, tomorrow do you want to train with us girls? Maybe we could both teach each other some new tricks. You can teleport but I know a girl who can fly. Cool, right? Maybe you could try some different elemental magic? wind or fire bullets would make for a one two punch with your ice. Plus I know how to summon smaller shadows. It could keep enemies away from you in combat."
>>3403414Thought up a couple of more questions in addition to >>3403517>"Yuuki, how did you come back? If you hadn't figured it out, Sakura made sure Sachiko didn't get a hold of her hope essence. I did, but Sakura told me Sachiko got yours. If we are going to take out Sachiko we better make sure she can't come back to go after us again.">"How did you meet Nei? She seems meek but really nice. Mako will probably get along well with her. It's not my place to pry into your business but I hope you're treating her nice. Sakura and I try to share our body. Is there anything in particular she or you might want? I want you guys to be comfortable with us.">"Is there anything you would like for me to say to Sakura? She was really concerned for you and wanted to save you. She was sorry about what happened between you. She is normally more talkative, I think the stress got to her and she passed out. Maybe she will be up tomorrow. I'll let you know when she is up, if you want."

Friendship hasn't stopped Sachiko in the past. Could Natalya have some leverage on Sachiko? Maybe, we could turn them against one another. If this is all a contract to Natalya could we buy her out, or just pretend to for the sake of a ambush on Natalya alone?""Nah Natalya is a prideful one. She will never leave a job unfinished. She won't be swayed easily. Also Natalya is strong not dumb. She probably already know what her plan is.""Yuuki, describe this "Arc" girl. There is this other girl in the city; we've bumped into her a couple of times now but she doesn't seem to be working with Natalya or Sachiko now. Could something have happened?""Natalya and Arc are part of an organization I don't know about. She along with Arc were newly minted girls who is investigating the one we defeated. Something happened probably if they have parted ways I mean you already know what Natalya did. She like flashy ones consequences be damned.""Does the name Tsugawa Tomoko ring a bell, who is she? Do you know anything about Sachiko's mother? She is a psychological researcher of some sort. What about her father or fathers, the mother remarried at some point?""She is dead.....by his father. His father became a shadow from the loss of her daughter. Grief and loss made him a powerful one that we have to kill. She probably see what we did to her father if that was the case.""Sakura mentioned she saw Sachiko defeating a powerful shadow, and that she had fought Natalya in the past, but she never mentioned working with Natalya, an Arc, an Organization, or anything about an examination. How do you know all this? Where did you meet Natalya? How were you friendly with her, while she was trying to kidnap Sakura. I won't judge you, Yuuki. The past is the past, what matters is moving forward.""I meet Natalya when she was asking for direction. Then we encountered a mugger who mugged my bag. She blasted her with an ice magic. Of course I was surprised as how she could casually throw a magical spell on a public. I have to tell everyone that she thrown a block of ice. And so when I show her my skills we became friends. Also she wants me to join her organization.....something about a bonus when referring her. Anyway she told me everything. She doesn't hide secrets I think if she can easily spill them."(1/3)
"When I saw you first fighting with Sachiko she said you took something important from her. What happened? You seemed to be talking about a man. He seemed important to Sachiko...important enough to fight and kill over. What the HELL is all this about? I had no part in any of this. Why did she fucking kill me? Yuuki, I need answers. I need to understand why Sachiko is doing all this to anticipate her next move. Please don't hold information back from me I just want to help both of us.""We killed her father. You see, her father was a scientist. We don't know what field but we caught him in broad daylight kidnapping children to school. Even made Sachiko a bait but I think she was naive or maybe she knew already. There we saw an abomination we have seen but he was already crying and transformed into one of the hardest shadow we fought."""Yuuki, how did you come back? If you hadn't figured it out, Sakura made sure Sachiko didn't get a hold of her hope essence. I did, but Sakura told me Sachiko got yours. If we are going to take out Sachiko we better make sure she can't come back to go after us again.""I can't explain it myself. I just heard a plea to help and next thing I knew I am inside of a body of a broken woman. Then there were deaths everywhere. I was weak at that time and so I tried to siphon the corruption around me. It was too powerful that I have to split it into two. But I didn't know that is a mistake. Another shadow was born from death. I got a skill to teleport with the power I have collected and used it to get out of that building. Since then I didn't return as I was looking for information how to kill that smug bitch.""How did you meet Nei? She seems meek but really nice. Mako will probably get along well with her. It's not my place to pry into your business but I hope you're treating her nice. Sakura and I try to share our body. Is there anything in particular she or you might want? I want you guys to be comfortable with us.""I didn't meet Nei, I just like...placed here. I just hear her voice and I offered mine in exchange. If I wasn't nice to her I would be gone....literally. It would hurt her too. Also I like this body....she has big boobs. I mean mine was smaller when I was alive....""What was that? I didn't hear the last one.""No nothing.""Is there anything you would like for me to say to Sakura? She was really concerned for you and wanted to save you. She was sorry about what happened between you. She is normally more talkative, I think the stress got to her and she passed out. Maybe she will be up tomorrow. I'll let you know when she is up, if you want.""I'll call you when I'm ready. I.....have a lot to say about her."(2/3)
>>3405304"Yuuki, tomorrow do you want to train with us girls? Maybe we could both teach each other some new tricks. You can teleport but I know a girl who can fly. Cool, right? Maybe you could try some different elemental magic? wind or fire bullets would make for a one two punch with your ice. Plus I know how to summon smaller shadows. It could keep enemies away from you in combat.""No.....magical secret.""Fine, anyway I'll leave you be.""Sure, I'm here when you need me.....or don't."Yuuki returns to reading and you go to the living room where you see Yuu watching the news.>"The cause of crash was an engine failure due to an extreme cold temperatures."Then the expert commentator comments to the absurdity of the report.>"But that is impossible. Airplanes engines are already running hours before flight. Even then, it is 30 degrees Celsius. That is no way that is something would happen.>"We don't know if it is really true as the investigation is still running but we will find out in the coming days. We just happy that everyone was accounted for..""Yuu what are you watching?""News.....seems they starting to know.""Yeah......Okada said that we have caught attention of various magical girls around the world.""What? Are they going to....""Okada is doing something as we speak....."Then you remember Okada sleeping up. Nah he can do it. You trust him."Alright.....as you say Junko.""Anyway I'm going to Marie. She seems to be......stressed.""Alright, I'll be here in a moment."Then you see her grab her 3rd bowl of popcorn as you see two popcorn bowls that are already empty and another 2 bows set aside. You can only shake your head..........Knocking on Marie's door, you open it to see......"Please stop it! I don't want to wear that.""Oh come on! you like this...""Auuuuuuu~""Marie! Stop bullying Mako!""Ah my queen help mee waaaaaah~""There there........go now before she pounces on you.""HEY I'M NOT A WOLF!!""Yeah, you are already one anyway.......Marie.""Yes?""I want to talk to you about your inner-shadow. I know it's late but I'm worried for you. I want to try meditating before we go to sleep to see if we can talk to her.""Why? We're just going on fine."Hmm.....how can you say this."What I mean is, to commune with your inner shadow and become one"How?""Let's meditate alright. Sit yourself in comfortable position and close your eyes. Ignore your surrounding and don't distract by the sounds around you. Now breathe in......breathe out........Do this in repeat.">Roll1d100+10 on how Marie will fare (+10 because she is easily distracted.....and not so patient)
Rolled 46 + 10 (1d100 + 10)>>3405309
Rolled 65 + 10 (1d100 + 10)>>3405309
Rolled 33 + 10 (1d100 + 10)>>3405309
Rolled 24 + 10 (1d100 + 10)>>3405309I would have figured they would have more of an agreemnt by now. Mary may have been a bit manic, but she could at least be somewhat reasonable. (probably since we're the queen and all of that.)
>>3405339>>3405352>>3405397>43Marie squirms a lot in her seat and tries to scratch an itch. You stop her movements to make her focus her own surroundings and to herself."Marie, don't be distracted you need to tap your own self."After 2 hours she seems to be caught out, you feel proud to yourself. You try to call her name."Marie?"*snoooooore*"Great......">Wake Marie up>Leave her be (do something?)>Write-in
>>3405518>Wake Marie up.>"I believe in you Marie, I know you can do it. How do you focus before shooting your bow? Try that. If you do well I will buy you a snack tomorrow."
>>3405518Hey, Sakura, what are the chances we can commune with her shadow and try to mediate things?
>>3405518>Leave her be>Hey, Sakura, what are the chances we can commune with her shadow and try to mediate things?
>>3405518>Hey, Sakura, what are the chances we can commune with her shadow and try to mediate things?If that doesn’t work>Wake Marie up and try again.
>>3405715>"Hey, Sakura, what are the chances we can commune with her shadow and try to mediate things?"Pretty high since she is asleep. We can talk to her easily if the person asleeps. Do you want to talk with her?>"If possible. Yes. I would.Well then, let's do it!You extend your hand and into Mary's head.Careful, not to strong or you'll push Mary. Should have lie her down.Then after a minute of your meditation you hear a familiar voice."Queen? QUEEEN! Do you want to play with Mary?">What do you want to say to Mary? (Write-in)Apologies to the delay. Something came up and I just finished it.
>>3405841>Yes Mary, I missed you. Can I hug you here? How have you been, have you been getting along with Mari? I've been worried about both of you. I want my friends to get along.
>>3405841>How have you been doing?
>>3405846does junko do hugs? I don't think so.
>>3405853I think she has hugged Mary in the past but it's like one am in the morning here so I'm not rereading thread two and three right now.I know she hugged Marie because she accidentally burned her when Marie revealed she was a full shadow.
>>3405853as much as I said i wasn't going to check Junko does do hugs and head pats with Mary. As far as I can tell the line is NO DRESS UP. as it even seemed rape-y with normal uncorrupted Marie.
>>3405841Supporting >>3405846 >>3405851
>>3405846>>3405851>>3405897WritingYeah Junko do hugs but NO DRESS UP! I think she has a phobia about dressing up after I made that omake.
>>3405862>>3405890I don't know about you, but i don't feel like junko is the first to engage in...sentimental? affectionate? stuff. Given her backstory, personality and current status as a vengeance incarnate, i don't feel like she initiates them(yet she reciprocates them). Then again, Mary was Junko's pet of sorts, she surely has some soft spot for her.>>3405904oh well, my curiosity has been satisfied.
>>3405915After rereading everything Junko isn't as stoic as she would like to portray herself. She has broken down on more than a few occasions. I think she does reciprocate emotion more often but, I think she would be sentimental and affectionate with people she holds close especially considering her background being lonely, isolated, and bullied. Mary definitely falls into being close to Junko. I don't think pet is fair description of how she treated Mary, more like a little sister/daughter.
>>3405904"Yes Mary, I missed you. Can I hug you here?""Of course, HUUUUUUUUG"You hug Mary, she immediately sinks to the feeling of your cuddly hugs. You forgot how adorable Mary was.....even it was a short time."How have you been? have you been getting along with Mari?""Of course, but I wish I have more to kill though hehehehe, I'm getting.....antsy? Yesh! I SAID A BIG WORDS WOHOOO!!""Awwww good job Mary......but I've been worried about both of you. I want my friends to get along.""We're getting along though. So my queen. When will I could kill many people. I want to kill my queen. PLEASE!!">Mary, it doesn't work like that.>Mary, I want you to suppress those urges, it affect Mari too.>I don't have many people to kill but there is two people I would glad for you to kill.>Write-in
>>3405937>I don't have many people to kill but there is two people I would glad for you to kill.>specially since they tried to kill my mom.
>>3405937>"Mary, I don't want you to be like this. We only hurt bad people and that is if they are bad enough to deserve it. There are two really bad people that I know that deserve to die, but we need to hunt them down first. Your blood lust is spilling over and it's hurting Mari and me too. I want you to be happy, like when we were playing together or doing stuff on our trip. How can I help you? I don't want to see one of my best friends and my little girl acting like this. I could try something but I'm scared you and Mari would fight and I don't want to lose either of you."
>>3405972>>3405982"Mary, I don't want you to be like this. We only hurt bad people and that is if they are bad enough to deserve it.

Please wait for a bit."Marie disappeared like a smoke and you wait for a moment. You don't know how many minutes you are waiting. As you have thought that she already disappeared, she came back."Okay my queen. Here I am."You see her in a......sentai costume?"When I was watching that big rectagular box that show wonderful moving pictures, I saw this and then it goes zoom and wooosh and TRANSFORM. So when Mari is tired, she can switch with me and I will take her place and transform. Do you like it my queen?>SKILL DISCOVERED - BODY DOUBLE: If Mari get's tired, she can switch with Mary to be in place. Mari skills will never carry over Mary skill and Mary skills will never carry over Mari skills. It has three stages.>Marie - A hybrid of ranged and melee skills.>Mari - A pure range with no melee skills. Wind attack are now available and her previous Magical Girl skill and bonus to range rolls>Mary - A pure melee with no range skills. Mary shadow attacks are available and bonus to melee attacks>MARY SKILL DISCOVERED: Axe throw - Mary will throw her axe to the target and she can call it backEX RAGE III - When Marie, Mari and Mary is out of energy. A pure raw corruption will take over her body and will do anything to kill the target......or die trying.JUNKO SKILL DISCOVERED: Leash - Junko can release Body Double for Marie at her command. This is also a trigger if Junko wants to use her Rage III.>What do you want to say to Mary? (Write-in)>Go out and wake Mary up>Do something (what?)>Go somewhere (where?)>Write-in
>>3406037I forgot, you can choose what stages you want to be. >EX: first is Mari then Mary then Marie.Feel free to discuss how you will make Marie do her final form........or whatever that word or phrase is.
>>3406037>"It's great Mary. I glad your willing to help. I was afraid that you might have forgotten about me or thought I forgot about you, or even come to like hurting Mari. I know she did some bad things but I gave her a second chance for a reason.">Pat Mary's head>"See Mary I have a shadow in my head too. Her name is Sakura. When I first woke up she was really mad and was pushing me to do bad things--not just revenge but like hurting Ms.Yuu or blowing up the world, stuf you saw bad guys do on TV. Eventually my hope energy built up and she was able to come back to her senses.>"Sakura do you want to say Hi?">"Mary-sweetheart, if you ever feel like your impulses are overwhelming you and you are going to lose control let me know. Sakura and I can try to balance you and Mari like what we did. It involves hope energy and I know how scary that can be. I almost died but you girls saved me.>Mary do you talk to Mari a lot? I don't really know how you guys work, could you both be here in your mind or is it a only one at a time sort of thing. I want you girls to work together.
>>3406037I know this obviously's not how it happens because these are magical girls and they all transform inside a beam of light or clouds of darkness, but i'd like to think that the transformations between the maries are like pic related.>It's great Mary. I glad your willing to help.>Pat Mary's head>Mary do you talk to Mari a lot? I don't really know how you guys work.See Mary I have a shadow in my head too and i'd like to compare how different are our dynamics.
>>3406041As far as final form and stuff I want to see marie/mari/mary gestalt work similar to Junko and Sakura, Ideally if we could help Mari get hope powers back so she could become a hybrid like Junko and not have to worry about getting burned by hope or dying. I think that is still a long term goal. I might need to re-read the update a few more times to grasp what just happened. it's nearly 4 am here so I'm slow on the uptake and using my keyboard as a pillow a couple of times tonight didn't help. I don't know what we might want to make the trigger word. >>3406059I was just about to write I thought everyone had probably crashed for the night.
I feel asleep and im still catching up when my computer doesn't crash for long enough, but did we consider asking Mary if they HAVE to be hmans she kills? She could take up "sport" hunting to get her own meals. Become a champion bullfighter. Kangaroo hunting is a legit profession. She'd actually be encouraged to slaughter too many of them.
>>3406418I just assumed it was humans since her battle junkie skill was about killing people. >"But my queen, whenever i kill a person it....empowers me. I feel like i get more energy that it used to...">MARY SKILL DISCOVERED: BATTLE JUNKIE - For every kill gives her energy to replenish her stamina. Energy includes fear, despair, pain, anger and loss.We should have Sakura try to examine the M-girls individually if possible. I need to re-read the updates from last night too everything is kind of still a blur.
>>3406060>I don't know what we might want to make the trigger word.Does it need to be a trigger word? we could easily order the maries to switch with a mental order.>>3406418We could open a butchery only for mary. Of course its not the same as cutting people, but chopping different (live?) animals all day might satiate her.>>3406418>Mary now has a homing axe.FUCK. YES.
>>3407190>trigger word I was thinking the same thing--just use the mental link, However one dosen't hurt as I think there are ways to mess with the mental link. I can't remember if it is immune to magical bs or not.>Mary's very own abattoir I don't know if that is necessary. Mary seemed to respond well to Junko telling her to cut it out, So, we might be able to just help her channel her urges into something more productive than death or DRESS UP. Depends how the whole dynamic between Mary and Mari really works.I think we are also being prompted to figure out how the new Mari/Mary/Marie dynamic will work but I want more information before we commit to anything. I thought we had succeeded in fusing them before Sakura told us otherwise. plus I want to find out how wrong my whole Mary is a mindbroken Rika theory is, since it seems to be less and less likely. Unrelated but sometime during the next day we should check why Arc was at Junko's old house. Dead drop perhaps.Also how did everyone think the questions were in:>>3405301>>3405304>>3405309I tried to cover all the bases and get as much relevant information out of Yuuki and a bit of fluff too. If anyone can think of anything else, we could always ask before letting Sakura straighten stuff out.
>>3407386>I can't remember if the mental link is immune to magical bs or not.Then what about mentioning us dressing up? something like: I remember the cute dress that (marie/mary/mari) showed me. Whoever we name is the cue for that personality to take over.>I don't know if that is necessary. Mary seemed to respond well to Junko telling her to cut it out, So, we might be able to just help her channel her urges into something more productive than death or DRESS UP. Depends how the whole dynamic between Mary and Mari really works.I have the feeling that just telling her to basically "shut up and soldier" will end up in mary eventually blowing up and going into a basically endless murder rampage. Giving her her own abattoir will give her something productive to do.>we should check why Arc was at Junko's old house.I had completely forgotten about that.
>>3407534>I had completely forgotten about that.We never actually learned about it in character as far as I remember so there was no reason to ever check.>I have the feeling that just telling her to basically "shut up and soldier" will end up in mary eventually blowing up and going into a basically endless murder rampage. Giving her her own abattoir will give her something productive to do.Probably depends on how the QM interprets bottling up urges. The pop culture idea is that bottling something up makes it explode like it inevitably would when the reality is the exact opposite. You bottle up rage/etc and you get better at keeping it bottled. You lash out with rage/etc and you get better at lashing it out. Which one is the right idea depends on whether the QM uses fantasy or reality and I'm leaning towards guessing that QM will use the pop culture idea.Giving her a release is more about allowing her a hobby that she enjoys doing, which actually is acceptable than "letting off some steam."A shame that we can't just give her a random fps and be done with it.
>>3407585>The pop culture idea is that bottling something up makes it explode like it inevitably would when the reality is the exact opposite. You bottle up rage/etc and you get better at keeping it bottled. You lash out with rage/etc and you get better at lashing it out.Where did you learn that ?
>>3407585>We never actually learned about it in character as far as I remember so there was no reason to ever check.Well, I think we knew about someone or something snooping in our house. It was one of the options along helping Yuuki or rescuing the brother.>Giving her a release is more about allowing her a hobby that she enjoys doing, which actually is acceptable than "letting off some steam."And how is letting her have her own slaughterhouse not the right way to let her relax?
>>3407600It's honestly been so long ago that I forgot. The closest thing to a reason for anyone to think raging out actually makes you calmer (while clearly ignoring the fact that you just raged out at something) is the fact that you get a bit of a rush afterwards just like any other physical activity would do.And I mean, how many people have we ever seen that regularly "explode" whom are perfectly calm and rational for the rest of the day/month/year instead of that asshole on a hair trigger?>>3407605I didn't say it wasn't? I was just pointing out that it's more for her "relaxation" than trying to abate tendencies since the idea that it would abate her tendencies is fundamentally flawed.
>>3407629>I didn't say it wasn't? I was just pointing out that it's more for her "relaxation" than trying to abate tendencies since the idea that it would abate her tendencies is fundamentally flawed.oh. fine for me then.
>>3407534I never really said tell Mary to “shut up and soldier on” all I meant was Mary seemed more than willing to try to work with us to try to get to the root of her issues, which I suspect is the dual shadow nature. If we can help her solve the problem that causes her to act this way why merely treat the symptoms of the problem. If we can’t help solve the impulses then we try to channel them with stuff like slaughterhouses or hunting.
>>3407807"It's great Mary. I glad your willing to help. I was afraid that you might have forgotten about me or thought I forgot about you, or even come to like hurting Mari. I know she did some bad things but I gave her a second chance for a reason.""No my queen, I like Mari and I like you to dress up you too.""..........""My queen?"You just pat Mary's head in hopes to forget the thing that called Dress up. Your eyes goes a thousand yard stare as Mary giggles at your affectionate headpatting. After a little while, you break out your traumatic experience and resume the conversation."See Mary I have a shadow in my head too. Her name is Sakura. When I first woke up she was really mad and was pushing me to do bad things--not just revenge but like hurting Ms.Yuu or blowing up the world, stuf you saw bad guys do on TV. Eventually my hope energy built up and she was able to come back to her senses."Mary freezes. You stare down at her feeling her body stiff."What's wrong?""My queen? You don't like Mary anymore?""Huh?""Why do you call another girls name?"She stands and face you brandishing an axe."Queen is only mine......no one else hihihihihi....""Mary please calm down your impulses are overwhelming you and you are going to lose control so please calm down for me.....please?"Mary slammed her axe in front of you and breath in and out. Then she goes back to her innocent crazed face."Okay.....I'll be calm. As long as you don't say that name. I'll be a good girl.""A-Alright......Mary do you talk to Mari a lot? I don't really know how you guys work, could you both be here in your mind or is it a only one at a time sort of thing. I want you girls to work together.""Of course......we talk how cute you will be on this dress or that dress or when we are eating I pick what looks like yummy and watch a lot of books. Mari is a very interesting girl. She show me how possible both girls show each other passion by.....You hear Mary crude explanation about Mari fetishes and taste. At the end of her long explanation, you are already beet red. Couple with what you have said and hear to Yuu it all now make sense."O-okay....uhm......I'll be.....going back....alright? Stay good both of you."You exit the meditative state and run to your room...............*meanwhile inside Mary's head*"Hey good job Mary.""Did I do good Mari-onee?""Of course.....still you don't want to tell her?""Not yet.....still you are right. She was fun to tease from.""Awwww because you all act innocent and such. Anyway, I'm going back now.""Alright.....see you soon."Marie wake up from her position and crawl to her bed as her feet was asleep from those hours of sitting. Then you return to sleep...............You are inside your room washing your face to forget all of those. Feeling refreshed and free from thoughts away, You think what will you do next.....>Go somewhere (where?)>Do something (what?)>Train (what?)>Investigate (who?)>Write-in
>>3407870Make a mental note to train with Mary later so that everyone can adjust to her switching. (Gonna be a pretty nasty surprise if the two fools try to engage Marie in melee)Train in shadow creation. Try to make them mor specialized like birds that can relay information/pictures via telepathy. An armored pony/Pegasi we can use as a mount. Kept kittens! They must be cute and/or fluffy! (They’re probably gonna end up all black)
>>3407870>Tell Okada to initiate a police manhunt against Natalya and Sashiko>Investigate who was in our house yesterday.
>>3407870QM it's still late evening right?>"Ask Sakura if it is possible to duplicate the barrier on the mansion. Is it part of Yuu's powers?">See if Okada is up. Bring him a blanket and tell him about the information Yuuki gave us. How has tracking Sachiko been going?
>>3407904I want to investigate Junko's old home, but do it with the team when the girls are fresh in the morning. We don't know what we could be walking into.
>>3407896I severely question the random words autocorrect forces in when I type. How does spy translate to kept?>>3407916I can support the barrier movement.we need hidings spaces when the magical girl swarm descends.
>Mari is a very interesting girl. She show me how possible both girls show each other passion by.....You hear Mary crude explanation about Mari fetishes and taste. At the end of her long explanation, you are already beet red. Couple with what you have said and hear to Yuu it all now make sense.Did I just read that right? Did Junko just get the world's worst/weirdest version of the birds and the bees talk from Mary of all people? Well at least Junko understands what Yuu wants now.
>>3407953>Did Junko just get the world's worst/weirdest version of the birds and the bees talk from Mary of all people?Worse. It was just bees and bees
>>3407916yes late evening>>3407953her poor virgin earsF
>>3407923I was about to propose sleeping, but i think this is a new day. The airplane crash and the fight were one day then yesterday we rescued the brother. This is confusing. I just assume we have quantum days and its day and night at the same time and that the day lasts as long as its needed.
>>3407976I assumed that we only sleep/eat out of habit since we're dead and technically could need neither of those things.
>>3407976True, it's my fault. I should keep attention to in-universe time to make in consistent.....or at least a little bit.
>>3407983>I assumed that we only sleep/eat out of habit since we're dead and technically could need neither of those things.we do get tired and hungry. I don't know if we would "die" if we don't eat, but sure it helps in staying at a 100%.
>>3407976I was going to suggest the same too after we figured out the barrier thing I have been pushing to figure that out since thread 5 and kept Okada up to date. I was going to suggest making it like a sleepover with Yuu, but we may not have any extra beds/sleeping bags so they might have to share Junko's . Mary might have changed how platonic any cuddling might be.
>>3407990As in that's more psychological than an actual physical need to do so. Eg Superman doesn't need to sleep eat or do a bunch of other stuff, but he does it anyway since he was born human and as such he thinks that way.
>>3407994>I have been pushing to figure that out since thread 5Don't worry about that. Sakura is always asleep>>3407996>>3407996This is just me ranting, but he does get tired. Not at the same rate as a human, but it eventually wears him down.I think you are right on that. At least on the hungry aspect, i'm pretty sure we still get mentally exhausted like a normal person.
Had an idea about how to try to get through to Raye like we did to Mary earlier in the story.What if we asked Raye, where she found the blankets (we wrapped up Kanna earlier) for Okada and tell her to wake us up at a decent hour in the morning to try a cooking lesson, maybe bring Mako too.If Junko keeps hanging around Yuu, Junko better figure out how to cook for her and it gives us a hobby to share with Raye to get closer to her. Plus, we can make Raye and Mako get to know each other better.
>>3408024Depends on the writer and even then the writer actually saying that he requires sleep is exceedingly rare. SO rare that I'm fairly sure it's only one writer that said that to "correct" the previous idea that he doesn't need sleep food or anything else due to his powers that another writer had written.
>>3407870Adding on to >>3407916 since I can't resist the fluff>Ask Sakura if it is possible to duplicate the barrier on the mansion. Is it part of Yuu's powers?>Ask Raye where she found the blankets earlier. Junko is bringing one to Okada. Ask Raye if she would mind waking up Junko at a decent hour for a cooking lesson: something simple like eggs and pancakes. Invite Mako along too. Junko makes Yuu's pancakes with love and not the way Raye has been >See if Okada is up. Bring him a blanket and tell him about the information Yuuki gave us. How has tracking Sachiko been going?
