You are a Magical Girl, and you're on your flight back to Japan, after a rather rough week in Siberia....Yes. It's only been a week. More or less. Even though it felt like half a year. It certainly seemed that way. You even have the hair to show for it, a long thick mass just hanging down your scalp, down your back, making your neck feel a bit too warm despite the air conditioning. You probably should've tied it back, or something. You thought about getting it cut right there and then, but Midori was quite insistent that you wait until you get back to Japan, at least. She sounded like she was planning something, despite sounding very, very tired. Misaka seemed to like it, anyway.You glance at the night sky outside the window of the private plane. Narrowing your eyes slightly at your faint reflection.You're going back home. Back to everyone. All thanks to a certain green-haired Magical Girl who is snoring in her seat beside you. Both her arms curled around yours, her face nuzzled into your shoulder....You're just not sure if you're the same person she rescued, or something else....You could really go for a cigarette right now.Or some water.
>>23871034It's pretty quiet, here, inside the jet. Misaka seems to still be awake - she'd joined you in the return trip, despite seeming like she'd stay back, at first. ...It's obvious that she's not too pleased with what happened with Souji and Kharn, but you did see her give the former Warmaster a grudging hug before dashing up the stairs leading up to the plane.In any case, she's doing work with Tiny Pete, it looks like. Or what appears to be just a part of him and his helmet - she'd said it was his AI core, where his machine spirit lived, or something. It looked much like a large silver sphere with a lot of wires, the entire thing attached to the inside of the tusked helm. The rest of the giant was stashed in the cargo bay, disassembled and packed into crates....Speaking of luggage, Kharn had sent you home with quite a bit. The first was a large metal case, easily as tall as her - the golden weapons, or at least the one not currently in your inventory. Her chainaxes and Kirika's sword. You found the Desert Eagle, funnily enough, hiding inside yours - even though you don't quite have any memory of putting it there in the first place. The bangles are there too, and you remember the conversation you had with the soul residing inside them. Kotaro Yuu, or something...maybe you could talk to her a bit.The other piece of luggage was a smaller one - in fact, it's only slightly bigger than a shoebox, made of cardboard, and taped shut rather securely. It's a bit heavy, to be sure - but it's not clicking or ticking, at least....Unlike your shield, of course. Which has been ticking ever since you got back.What do you do?
>>23871036Timestop.Lets get this show started with PINKY.
[x] Check to make sure this is real deculture and not that jerk who was destroying hopes a few days ago.;~; please?
>>23871057I can verify it is the real deculture. I think the new opening image helps prove it, too.
>>23871036Is the phone still being a bitch-ass puzzle box? are there still locked messages on it?
>>23871057It's posted on Decu's twitter.I'm sure its him.
>>The other piece of luggage was a smaller one - in fact, it's only slightly bigger than a shoebox, made of cardboard, and taped shut rather securely.The box! THE BOX!
>>23871036>>23871081Yeah, check the phone.
>>23871034Booox. First the box.
>>23871036Inspect shield, try out our abilities and see what has changedSay hi to Pinky while we are in stopped timeThen ask Misaka how she is handling things and whether she found things to improve on Tiny Pete after his first real fielding
>>23871036Chat with pinky!But first check the phone.
>>23871036Timestop. See what Pinky wants with us, if she's there.
>>23871050As much as I love Pinky, visiting first might be a bad idea. Things were pretty tense the last time we talked to her in a plane. Take care of the box first, I think.
Sure let's talk with Pinky.While Midori is still hugging us.Yeah, that'd be safe
>>23871050>>23871099>>23871102>>23871107>>23871113>>23871133let's not potentially endanger Misaka and Midori while on a plane.
Goodness, I've never been online for the beginning of one before!
>>23871036Check the box
>But you've always felt just a tiny bit sick, somehow. Sluggish. A hot, sticky fever crawling through your veins, sweltering just underneath your skin. Sometimes it's dull and faint enough that you can ignore it, other times it's sharp enough popping enough painkillers to fill a pharmacy doesn't even help a single bit.You know, I wonder if the pain is still there.Anyways if we want to talk to pinky how about we move into the toilet first, shut the door, and the turn the shield. And address pinky as Madoka Kaname. I wonder what her reaction would be.
>people wanting to talk to pinky>on plane>with Misaka and MidoriGood to see that MGNQ still has terrible ideas ...
>>23871159>airplane toilet>implying Mile High Clubbisonyes.gif>address her as MadokaMaybe we should ask her if she would prefer that.
It's probably best to engage Faust/Pinky in conversation in an enclosed space, and the clicking obviously implies she's pining us to pick up the phone as it were, so yeah. Move away from Midori and Misaka and THEN use shield to talk with demonic ex.
>>23871118She still wants Chiaki to play her game. She'll be snide and sarcastic but harm her? Not... probably?
missed a very many threads. Is it purely cosmetic, bad, or very bad that murderface has purple eyes.
>>23871184Nor so much worried about Chiaki as Midori and Misaka. Pinky was rearing to kill them the last time we talked to her and this probably got even worse over the course of Midori's rescue mission. I'm hoping that all those voting for visiting Pinky first reconsider.
>>23871185The result of combining all the chiakis together?
>>23871185We went through the same procedure as Kharn and ended up with the same kind of eyes. Safe to assume they're not an issue.>>23871188YOUR MODS HAVE ABANDONED YOU.
>>23871185Speaking of the starter image.That "nothing to lose" should be edited already.
>>23871200K. I assume that procedure has something to do with witching out?
>>23871215It was to treat Golden Weapon Corruption, actually.The witching out happened after.Actually, I don't recall our eyes being mentioned at all between the two events...
>>23871244The eyes are probably a result of both events.Witching out and coming back and going through the surgery.
>>23871244in which case,[x]Gaze soulfully into the reflective surface of the mirror, and contemplate the new eyes.
>>23871159>>23871036Yea it's probably a better idea to check the box first. Pinky has shown that she can force our shield if she really, really wants to talk to us. But I wonder if we are still in constant pain or if merging together as fixed that
>>23871244After the treatment, it was clearly mentioned that Chiaki's eyes had become pure black with the pupils turning purple, just how Kharn's are pure black with red pupils.
>>23871265Is that a new one?Nice expression there. And love the creases and fold work.
>>23871281It's an old edit so I can't claim much on this one other than having the patience to redraw most of it, haha.
>>23871036>What do you do?>[x]WHAT'S IN THE BOOOX?!
>>23871340Mami's head.Bad End.
>>23871036Realize that we forgot Kyouko's damn Ushanka, ask Misaka if she happened to pick one up
>>23871370I'm hoping she actually managed to get one.Else if we're lucky, there should be one inside one of the MIGs we snagged.
>>23871370>>23871379Midori probably did it, like the incredibly helpful assistant she is.
>>23871370Well, we recovered our memories after the merger. I'm sure we remember to get Kyouko her hat. Or Midori did because that's what she's there for.
A lot of people prefer Chiaki to have short hair. But I wonder if /tg/ will keep the long hair if pinky asks us to
>>23871050 >>23871099 >>23871107 >>23871113You glance at your phone, specifically the diary app that's proven to be a bitch to unlock the entries in. You'd expect it to be a bit more accommodating now, seeing as you've gone through so much shit in the past few days - but it's still disabled, greyed out and unable to run. You grumble underneath your breath, completely disgusted at the app's temerity, before shoving the device back into your inventory. Stupid thing.Well, at least you can still check on something. The clicking on your shield, for one. You can do something about that, although you'll have to be careful about it.You turn your wrist slightly to look at your shield. ...It's still got its scar with the jagged edges on it, that's for sure. Nothing seems to be new. You can still see the gears whirring and spinning inside the thing. ...Of course, you don't quite remember most of them being gold. Or maybe...maybe they were to begin with? You're not sure. You shake your head at this, before carefully, gently, removing your arm from Midori's embrace. The green-haired Callidus mumbling slightly in her sleep as you do so, deigning to embrace your arm a bit more tightly to her before finally relenting - albeit, with a small frown on her face. You find yourself murmuring an apology, before patting her hand and then rising from your seat. Wincing slightly as various aches and pains come to the fore at the movement.Taking care of the clicking on your shield is easy. At least, you think it should be. You just have to make sure you're in a safe place to do so, away from both Midori and Misaka. An enclosed space, where at least you'll have a chance to cancel the time stop in case it got out of hand....The private jet's lavatory should be alright for that, or at least you think so. [1/2]
>>23871034>You probably should've tied it back, or something. You thought about getting it cut right there and then, but Midori was quite insistent that you wait until you get back to Japan, at least. She sounded like she was planning something, despite sounding very, very tired.See, now i'm envisaging Midori setting up an awesome entrance for us to return with.And it involves a hime-ponytail, and a Balalaika outfit replete with cigar and the Warmaster coat.
>>23871430"Ah, Big Sister Murderface!" Misaka chirps cheerfully as you pass by her. She's sporting a couple of bandaids and bandages on her face and hands - it appears that she got a bit banged up while piloting Tiny Pete - but she's chipper as ever, sitting on the carpeted floor of the plane with tools and various fragments of Tiny Pete scattered around her. The AI core of the hulking murderbot on her lap, the various wires connecting it to the tusked helm on the floor twitching in random intervals. "Going to bathroom?"...Yeah. Something like that, you reply, reaching out to ruffle the girl's hair, making her giggle and grin. As if she hadn't almost died trying to rescue you.What do you do?Talk to her for a bit before checking on your shield.You can talk with her later. Shield first.
>>23871443[x] Shield first. You don't normally stop trips to the bathroom just to chat with people, we don't want her to think something's up. We can probably talk with her after.
>>23871443>[x]Talk to her for a bit before checking on your shield.I think timestop is a horrible idea. Lets do it when we are on the land, which should be in few hours anyway.
>>23871443[x]You can talk with her later. Shield first.Misunderstandings, ho!
>>23871443>[X]You can talk with her later. Shield first.Talk with loli Misaka later.
>>23871443[x]Talk to her for a bit before checking on your shield.
We should talk to the demonic Pinky first, that'll probably not make her anger rise further and actively try to kill us.
[X]You can talk with her later. Shield first.Time to meet madoka
>>23871443>[x]Talk to her for a bit before checking on your shield.Misaka is a good girl. She at least deserves a thanks you pat on the head for coming to our rescue in Tiny Pete.
>>23871443Talk to her first,Quickly thank her for the help and ask how Tiny Pete is going
>>23871450Didn't exactly want to go this way, but now that we're here I agree with Purple. You don't generally stop on your way to the bathroom to chat with people. Give Misaka a pat on the head and tell her we'll be back shortly or something.
>>23871443>[X]Talk to her for a bit before checking on your shield.To fellow MGNQuesters,Stop choosing paths what i don't like. =P
>>23871443>You can talk with her later. Shield first.Make everything look normal.We'll chat with her later.
>>23871443>You can talk with her later. Shield first.Let's get it over with.
>>23871450>>23871525This.While I'd like to talk with her, it'd be suspicious.
>>23871034Are we really a magical girl with nothing to lose anymore?
>>23871625Space Lion says no, we're not. http://youtu.be/xEhOWp80V7k
It's been some time since I've been in one of these. I see some new namefriends too.Hello, everyone!Just another anon coming back.Polite sage for off-topic-ish, since the decision is clearly already made.
>>23871450 >>23871457 >>23871462You'll talk to her later, you decide. Besides, she'd pick up on the fact that you stopped on the way to a bathroom break, and figure out that you're doing something strange instead of attending to nature's call. Misaka's always been sharp like that."Okay! Make sure Murderface washes her hands! Murderface sometimes forgets!" She replies, before going back to whatever she was doing with Tiny Pete's core. Immediately preoccupied with her tools, in that intensely-focused way that children can disturbingly switch to in a drop of a hat.You get to the private jet's lavatory without any other issues. It's...a bit bigger than you thought. It even has a shower, and a small tub. Nothing like the cramped, one-person stall that you once had to hide in during one escort mission, while terrorists hijacked the plane you and your principal had switched to at the last second. You remember the entire flight crashing, and...Malal suddenly appearing to whisk you and your principal out of it before it went up in flames.You glance at your reflection on the lavatory mirror above the sink. You...look like you've always looked like. Well, except for the long hair. And the fact that there's a tiny dot of crimson in your eyes where your pupils once were. The rest look normal at least - the irises a dark purple, the whites...well, white, if a bit bloodshot.You take off your glasses and rub your eyes a bit. You should probably look into getting more sleep.The shield on your right arm is clicking. Louder, faster this time.[1/2]
>>23871716You take a deep breath, before grasping the edge of the metallic disc and pushing.The gears of your shield giving a grinding shriek, as if protesting loudly at the rather rough treatment - and it's then that the color of everything immediately fades into black and white. Time is now yours, free to be bent over a barrel and have your way with.. . .Wait, where's Pinky?Call out to her.Go out of the lavatory and explore the plane. Maybe she's hiding somewhere.
>>23871719Maybe Pinky is being polite and not spying on us when we go to the bathroom?
>>23871719[x]Go out of the lavatory and explore the plane. Maybe she's hiding somewhere.
[X]Go out of the lavatory and explore the plane. Maybe she's hiding somewhere.bitch is probably trying to surprise us somehow.
>>23871719>[X]Go out of the lavatory and explore the plane. Maybe she's hiding somewhere.
>>23871719>Call out to her.>Go out of the lavatory and explore the plane. Maybe she's hiding somewhere.Call out to her at the same time as we step out.10 bucks says shes death glaring at Midori.
>>23871034JEEBUS CHRIST! FINALLY I GET A NEW FIX FOR M MGNQ-ADDICTION!
>>23871719>[X]Go out of the lavatory and explore the plane. Maybe she's hiding somewhere.Best check to make sure stuff hasn't gone to hell beyond our line of sight. If she wasn't there initially she's probably manifesting somewhere else on the plane.
>>23871719>Call out to her.>Go out of the lavatory and explore the plane. Maybe she's hiding somewhere.Both?I mean, what stops us from calling out while looking for her?
>>23871741This, and>10 bucks says shes death glaring at Midori.I'm with ya.
>>23871719Call out to -Madoka-. If she doesn't reply in a few seconds, start looking.
>>23871719>[X]Go out of the lavatory and explore the plane. Maybe she's just somewhere else at the moment.>[X]Call out to her too.
>>23871741>10 bucks says shes death glaring at Midori.I dunno, last I checked they got along pretty well.Enough to get Pinky to consider a threesome? Maybe, maybe not. Enough to overlook minor transgressions? Probably.
>>23871719[X] OtherCall Madoka on your phone.
>>23871719>Go out of the lavatory and explore the plane. Maybe she's hiding somewhere.Then call out.
>>23871771She nearly had a bad reaction from Midori offering to carry Moemura.I expect pinky will treat this latest development as a betrayal of sorts. She'll not suffer such an insult lightly.
>>23871790Yeah, probably. Depending on how sane she is at the moment this could either go over well or extremely bad, which is why I wanted to wait until later before talking to her.
>>23871803Fuck. I thought engaging her ASAP would be beneficial because the longer a wait the more impatient/plain ANGRY she might have become.
>>23871808I think this was probably the right way of thinking. Although I wouldn't have voted for Pinky before box or phone, I probably would have gotten to it quickly.
>>23871808>>23871803Still think its best to do so.Better nip it in the bud then let her fester and plot.
>>23871719Oh boy!We need to check of pinky hasn't torn anybody apart, and that includes the pilot.Calling if we find her calling her Madoka will get her attention.>[x]Go out of the lavatory and explore the plane. Maybe she's hiding somewhere.Hurry!
>>23871719Explore to see if she's around
>>23871741If death glaring Midori is all she's doing, I'll consider this a success.
Is it Decu summoning time again?
>>23871732 >>23871736 >>23871741 >>23871762This is...disconcerting. She's not around. Pinky - Faust - Madoka is nowhere to be seen in the small lavatory. You even checked behind the shower curtain, just to be sure. Nothing there, although you found the thought of seeing her in the shower momentarily entertaining, a small grin curling your lips. ...No. No, what are you thinking? This is Pinky, here. Get your shit together.You call out her name, half-expecting your voice to be muted while speaking during a Time Stop - but your voice is clear, or as clear as it can be, what with your throat ravaged by too much alcohol and cigarette smoking. No response. You give everything another once-over, before you decide to step out of the enclosed space you wanted to confront her in. Maybe, just maybe, she's outside - which meant that Midori and Misaka were precisely in the situation that you didn't want them to be in.Shit.You all but tear out of the lavatory, nearly tearing the door off its hinges as you make to rush out of the door - when suddenly everything goes dark, courtesy of two gloved hands clamping over your eyes, slipping under your glasses and pressing your eyelids close. The smell of something cloyingly sweet tickles your nostrils, spiced with the scent of fresh blood. Sharp claw points distressingly pressing on the delicate skin of your eyelids, making them itch. You immediately freeze in your tracks, quite unwilling to have your eyes torn out."Guess who, Homura-chan," whispers a lovingly-sweet voice in your ear. How do you react?
>>23872015I -was- sort of hoping to see you in the shower, you know..
>>23872015"Is it Hanako-san of the toilet? Cause I don't believe in Hanako-san of the toilet."
>>23872015I'd SUGGEST to greet her warmly but this isn't Gensokyo and we're no grumpy asskicking miko. Umm... "Faust? -Hey a small part of me DID kinda hope to see you in the shower.. just a little mind you.-"
>>23872015"You're still calling me Homura-chan, I see. Then am I allowed to call you... Madoka?"
>>23872039>Gensokyo>greet her warmly>not greet her with bullets flying everywhere OH DEAR GOD THE BULLETS
>>23872026You. I like you.
>>23872045What, you don't greet your friends by turning the air into bullets? Are you a wimp or something?
>>23872025I can back this decision
>>23872015"Kaname-san?" Channel Moemura to thow her off
>>23872045Hey this is not touhoues and we cannot bulletspa-...Actually we CAN.. but civility is first call of contact before playing with bullet-hoses.
>>23872015THIS >>23872026THEN THIS >>23872025
>>23872015"Hello, Faust. I suppose, in a way, it's been a while."
We should get in that "Hi. Sorry." at some point.
>>23872015Someone who I was hoping to catch in a compromising position for once, seriously doesn't it get boring always being the one surprising?
>>23872056I don't think we can pull that off with our whiskey-and-smokes voice. And if we heal our vocal cords we won't get ANY respect back at the Officio.
>>23872015[x]"I'm surprised you resisted the chance to jump out of the shower at me like in 'Psycho'." That's not exactly how it happened in Psycho, but I doubt Homura's actually seen it.
>>23872015Feels like we can do this >>23872067 and then this >>23872087as a follow up.
>>23872015"Let me guess, I should have checked for you in the toilet."
>>23872015[x] Let's see.. You're too tall to be Misaka, but I don't feel breasts, so you can't be anyone else I know...Oh wait.>:3
>>23872025>>23872026Is it Hanako-san of the Toilet? You ask this as you try to calm your racing heartbeat, quelling the compulsion to reach up with both your hands and pull her hands off of your face. You...you're not frightened, not as such, but she did get you good there, you have to admit. At the very least, you know she hadn't been messing about with Midori or Misaka, or anyone else in the plane. You satisfy yourself instead by letting out what sounds almost like a mildly-annoyed sigh, and adding that you don't really believe in any ghost who chooses to spend her time haunting school toilets."Hanako-san...? Oh. Oh! Hee, you're such a kidder, Homura-chan! Wrong guess, though!" Pinky giggles in her usual airy way, before mimicking the sound of a buzzer. "Buuu! You lost your one chance at a special, one-of-a-kind treat! And I was really looking forward to give it to you too!"It's with another giggle that she removes her hands from your eyes - and you blink them open, before re-adjusting your glasses. You turn around immediately to find Pinky standing behind you, and she's...well, strange. She's holding her hands behind her back, seemingly fidgeting on the spot while studying you with her sunless eyes of hers - much like a child debating on whether or not to confess to something naughty."Well, um...welcome back, I guess," Pinky suddenly says, bashfully. "I...I was worried when you got sucked into that Barrier. That wasn't supposed to happen." The pink-haired horror looks away. "I...I thought I'd be able to rescue Homura-chan myself, but I needed THAT thing's help anyway." She pouts as she looks at something over your shoulder, and you turn to follow her line of sight. Midori. ...You don't have all the details from the Callidus yet, and you don't quite remember EVERYTHING about what happened, but...for Midori to work with someone like Pinky to save you, well....[1/2]
>>23872340Eh, we didn't like those new eyes anyway.
>>23872357>Bashful pinkyI... What?
>>23872357"Don't worry, I didn't do anything to her," The pink-haired girl suddenly snaps at you, and you realize that you'd been staring at Midori for far too long. "I'm not that kind of person, Homura-chan. Sure, I'd pull apart anyone who wanted to steal you from me, but she helped me, too. So I'm going to fight fair with her, at least where you're concerned."...That's comforting, at least. You're really not sure what's going on here, but--"Ah, Homura-chan, you're stupid!" The tip of Pinky's shoe cracks against your shin, and you wince at the sudden stab of pain. "You're supposed to be put together back again! Why are you still being stupid about a girl's feelings?!"In...in your defense, you were hoping to see her in the shower...? Was that what she wanted to hear?"Idiot!"How do you respond?Ask her what happened in the Barrier. Why did she help find you?Ask about Malal and Mirai. Where are they now?What was the treat you didn't get?
>>23872392"S-sorry"[x]What was the treat you didn't get?
>>23872392>[X]Ask her what happened in the Barrier. Why did she help find you?Asking about others at this point would likely just make her jealous which is totally what you guys want, isn't it, you bastards?We ask what the treat was at the end of the conversation.
>>23872392>What was the treat you didn't get?I still want it. Hell, we deserve it for defying death and witchification.
>>23872392[x]Ask about the barrierI'm not sure it's the best choice, but to hell with it.
>>23872392[X] ask all the questions
>>23872392>Ask her what happened in the Barrier. Why did she help find you?>Ask about Malal and Mirai. Where are they now?Everything about the barrier for now.Also a water cooler, the toilet is not. Lead her to the seating area and get her a drink too.When thats done we can ask her about the present.
>>23872392This >>23872401We can still be moe.
>>23872401Might as well.
>>23872392"I'm not excusing it, but have I ever been good at this sort of thing?"[x]Ask her what happened in the Barrier. Why did she help find you?
>>23872392[x]Ask about Malal and Mirai, specifying that Pinky shouldn't hate them either since they also helped us survive.
>>23872401Yes. Do this.And ask about the barrier.
>>23872405This. Ask about barrier first, end conversation asking about the treat. Since we remember more of the past now, maybe during the barrier question would be a good time to apologize to her for fucking everything up, which is something we should have done ages ago.
>>23872392>[x]Ask her what happened in the Barrier. Why did she help find you?Seems the best question of the lot. We should mention at one point that we remember that all of this is somehow our fault.
[x]Ask her what happened in the Barrier. Why did she help find you?DECULTURE I MISSED YOU, DON'T WORRY ME SO.
>>23872392>So I'm going to fight fair with her, at least where you're concernedHuh, seems like Midori's earned Pinky's respect. That's good news.Anyway I'm curious what the treat was.
>>23872480If its a good present and on account of her behaviour in the barrier, working with Midori, I say she'd earn a hug at least.
ive been checking Decu's twitter everyday, every hour that i am at my computer for this. ive missed you man.
>>23872392[x] Ask about the treat.Being direct with Pinky never seems to be a good idea, especially when she's trying to be...well...nice.
> Catch up finally, two days after recap thread.> Wait frigging ages.>Actually be online, awake and off work for thread.> Keyboard craps out.FML.
>>23872392[X] Ask all the questions!
Do you think that this was the treat?
>>23872392[x]Say we'll give her a treat if she gives us a treat.
>>23872679Maybe like this?
>>23872692[X] MAXIMUM YES.
>>23872692>long_time_no_see.jpeg well theres nothing to see there anyway...
>>23872401 >>23872414 >>23872465Well, here you are, then. You're some couple of hundred feet over ocean, inside a self-propelled flying aluminium coffin, having stopped time itself to have an awkward conversation with a pink eldritchian terror - who is blushing and pouting at the same time, in what could be in a cute way (if one found completely-black eyes and sharpened teeth cute). Sometimes you don't really get how you manage to throw yourself into this kind of situations....You take her pouting a bit harder at you as a sign that you should continue the conversation, and you do so - asking her about what really happened in the barrier. Yes, you're put back together. That much your remember, but everything else is a bit spotty, even after hearing it from Midori."...Midori-chan was really brave," Pinky says after a moment, eyes downcast, grinding the toe of her shoe into the carpet. "She saved me from the scary Homura-chan, the one with the ugly armor and teeth and spikes and all that. That Homura-chan was mean, really," She looks up at you with a child's distressed expression, both gloved hands reaching up to pat at her eyes. "Stuck both her thumbs into my face, screaming about how I should stop acting like a brat and stop making people suffer! The nerve! As if she'd forgotten just whose fault everything is, really!"...Yes, well. You can see how that might sour her mood."I...I don't remember much about what happened after that, to be honest," Pinky says after another period of awkward silence between the both of you. "Well, u-um, Kharn did help me get to a safe place, but everything after that..." She shakes her head. "It's just a blank, really..."[1/2]
>>23872743But why go through all the trouble, then? The both of you know that...well, it was your fault in the first place, what happened to her. What happened to everything. Wouldn't it have been convenient for her to just leave you there to die?Pinky looks up at you, her sunless eyes wide in horror. "W-what? I...I'd never leave you in a place like that, Homura-chan! A-at least, not before throwing you in there myself!" She shakes her head in abject denial, both clawed hands reaching up to clamp over her ears. "N-no, no, shame on you for even suggesting such a thing! I'd never stoop to something that low, Homura-chan! Perish the thought!"Then why--"Because I GET TO KILL YOU MYSELF!" The sudden scream rocks you back on your heels, and it echoes inside your mind like a screeching wail. "YOU DON'T GET TO DIE, NOT THAT EASILY, WITHOUT BEING REMINDED OF YOUR MISTAKES!" For the briefest moment do you see Pinky's face twist into the monstrosity that you'd encountered, on that abortive elevator trip down the Siberian Base's depths - insane, murderous justice given form of a twisted, malevolent goddess. A moment more, and her visage flickers back into the smiling face of Kaname Madoka."Besides, you haven't gotten all twenty yet! Four is a nice number, though, very lucky!" Pinky giggles, all smiles once more.. . . You probably should abandon this line of questioning. Yes, fine. What about that treat, then...? What did you just miss out on?"Oh, that!" Pinky blinks. "Um, well...I guess it's a warning, I guess? A hint of a sort! About Mami-san!"How do you react?
>>23872756Inb4 Madoka's trying to warn us about CHOMP
>>23872785Mogu-mogu was already avoided. She's probably trying to let us know that Mami has a golden weapon so that the knowledge is finally IC for us instead of us knowing from Mami's flashback. >>23872756Ask her if we can still get the hint or if there's something she wants from us first.
>>23872756just a simple what will suffice
>>23872756I think 'how on earth do you know Mami?' would be in order here.
>>23872756[x] "We already know to avoid the whisky pancakes now."
>>23872756A treat for a treat, Pinky. Tell me about the warning and you'll get something I had to give you a long time ago.It's a hug and a thank you for saving both Midori and Muderface in the barrier. A slap on the ass is optional.
>>23872832throw in a sorry as well
>>23872756mumi noWe should ask her if there's any other way to get our treat.
>>23872815I think we can infer.>>23872756"Oh. I don't suppose a non-lethal takedown is an option? I mean, I didn't have to kill Kharn to get her totally sick chainaxe things."
>>23872832this is good
>>23872743>>23872756"Haven`t we suffered enough, Madoka? Shouldn`t we try to put an end to this. You hate me, I get it. But there is no reason in involve other people in this, people who would have been easily your comrades and friends in another life. Don`t make other people pay for our mistakes. You think that this is going to make me suffer more but you seem to forget that you are not the kind of person to be immune to this, either.I don`t even remember why I did it. I don`t remember what I wished for. I don`t even remember my parents or anyone from before I´ve met you, thanks to you."
>>23872756"If you give me that treat, I'll give you one." Except the treat is one of the souvineers we got in Siberia or something. Anything like a hug will just make her latch onto us harder, and maybe not in a good way.
>>23872756Was it that her pancakes are addictive? Because I learned that lesson already.And the whiskey ones just about put me out of commission for good
>>23872756"You've given her one? And I suppose it would be too late for her once I get back?"
>>23872900the final goal is watermelon.i see nothing wrong with this.
>>23872756[x] "Her three sizes?"
>>23872900Do you want to piss her off intentionally? This is a mad goddess with the mental state of a teenage girl. Not sure how many teen girls you have interacted with, but baiting any of those I have known like this would have resulted in a hissy fit. Do this to Pinky and Homura might as well have a few limbs missing once the timestop ends. Hug is good enough to placate her. And she DID save us.
>>23872939I wonder if getting punched by Pinky would kill us...
>>23872979Probably notBeing slapped with those clawed hands? Probably
>>23872976> And she DID save us.Not really. The one who saved us was her sane half. What you want to do is thank the person that is responsible for this shit in the first place, to thank for helping you out in a situation that was caused by her. By now we should be either fed up with her, tired of her or just pissed at her.
>>23873002She distracted ARMOUREDmura from moemura and midori.Technically she saved us and midori from ourself.I think shes earned that hug.
>>23873002Pinky was the one who originally appeared in front of Midori, Godoka intervened much later. Yeah, I advocate for building a good relationship with Pinky and not testing our luck.
>tfw you realize Black Rock Homura made Pinky her bitch and ripped out Pinky's eyes. Bueno.jpgI miss BRHomura.
>>23873023Weren't they only really in danger because they were with pinky though?Or did It take a beat down from Kharn to put her in the frame of mind that Midori could do her magic?
>>23873023Agreed. We make nice with Faustyoka now.
Slightly unrelated to current events, but just finished this so here you go.Should probably get to work now.
>"...Midori-chan was really brave," Pinky says after a moment, eyes downcast, grinding the toe of her shoe into the carpet. "She saved me from the scary Homura-chan, the one with the ugly armor and teeth and spikes and all that. That Homura-chan was mean, really," She looks up at you with a child's distressed expression, both gloved hands reaching up to pat at her eyes. "Stuck both her thumbs into my face, screaming about how I should stop acting like a brat and stop making people suffer! The nerve! As if she'd forgotten just whose fault everything is, really!"Well that Homura was from the bad future where the weapons drove her crazy and made her kill everyone. >>23873002Don't bother trying to point out the sane reaction. People here love Yandare's for some reason. Then again, I can sort of guess where they are coming from.
>>23873073Cool!I'll miss Kharn's boobs.
>>23873092Oh, I also happen to love yandere`s , but that said, pinky is not a true yandere. I also think she is Pic related-levels of annoying.
>>23873157Well you're wrong. Twice.
>>23873002If you're going to go that far you may as well just lay all blame at Homes feet, since she's the one that drove Pinky insane in the first place.
>>23873182But it was Madoka's fault that Homu was upset about the whole 'forgotten God' thing.And it was Kyuubey's fault that Madoka needed to make the wish in the first place.And it was the universe's fault that Kyuubey needed to negate entropy.So fuck you, universe. Fuck you.
>>23873174Hes right thought.A true yandere would have killed midori already.Thats shes willing to come down to competing honourably with her shows shes not really one.
>>23873213No no no. She's yandere for Homura, and tsundere for Midori.
>>23873213You would be right if there was just PinkyBut inside Pinky's head is Madoka as well who would be doing her best to temper her craziness in small ways like that.If it were just Pinky 100% then yeah Midori would be gone as would pretty much everyone else
>>23872832 >>23872904 >>23872816A warning about Mami...? If this is about her whisky pancakes, then you don't really need to be warned away from them, no. You appreciate the thought, though."W-what? Whisky pancakes...? Er, no, that's not what I'm supposed to warn you about..." Pinky's brow furrows. "Wait, Mami-san can make whisky pancakes? You can make pancakes with whisky in them?"...Sure? You mean, no, you don't really know how to make them yourself, not the way Mami makes them, but if she could do that and have you end up in the Silent Room going cold turkey for weeks on end...then you're pretty sure that they can be made."I'll...probably have to look up on how to make them, then..." Pinky murmurs underneath her breath, before shaking her head and stamping her foot. "W-wait! The hint! Yes, it's not about those stupid things! I'm supposed to warn you about something that'll happen to Mami-san soon, but since you didn't guess who I was earlier, you're not getting it!" She sticks out her tongue at you, which would have been cute, if not for the fact that the gesture doesn't really translate when the one doing it has blood-pinked, pointy teeth. "Nyah, nyah! Stupid Homura-chan!"You frown at this. You're...well, you realize that you're at fault of all this, somehow, and that if you step one wrong way here, you could very well get your heart torn out. But she can give you a break, can't she? Can't things go your way just once?It's then that you decide to throw caution to the wind and offer her a deal. What if you give her something in exchange for the treat? A treat of your own, in fact. Something she'd probably like, and something you should've given to her long ago.[1/2]
>>23873223Seen no indication of any dere for the green goddess. Just grudging respect as of now.
>>23873287"Eh?" Pinky blinks at this, suddenly puzzled. "W-what would that be, Homura-chan? I--" Her words trail off into silence as you step closer to her, a small smirk on your face, and for once you realize that you're a bit taller than her, from the way she's looking up at you, her black eyes completely wide. "Homura-chan...?"You give the pink-haired horror a hug. Embracing her smaller, slightly-warmer frame against yours, despite feeling every cell of your body reflexively flinch at this, despite her sweet-smelling, cloying perfume filling your lungs and nearly making you choke.You thank her for saving Midori, and...well, yourself, too. While you're under no illusions of what happened between the both of you - the heart-ripping and face-shooting and so on - that doesn't mean you can't be civil like this every now and then.Pinky squeaks in your grasp, wriggling slightly - and it's then that you feel her hands alight gently on your shoulders. For one terrible moment you imagine her claws suddenly sinking deep into your flesh and then ripping downwards, but all she does is to push you back slightly, her shoulders shaking.Is...is she crying?"...Too nice," Pinky sobs. "You're...you're too sweet, all of a sudden, Homura-chan...! You're not supposed to be like this to me! You're...you're supposed to hate me! I don't understand...!"She pushes against you, again, a bit more firmly, this time, and you let her squirm out of your grasp. The Shield on your arm suddenly clicking again, quickly, furiously. You glance down at it, frowning at how ill-timed it is - and when you look back at Pinky, she's wiping away the tears of blood tracking down her cheeks."The...the hint is that..." She hiccups loudly, squeaking as she did so, and she shakes her head in irritation. "Mami-san will die unless you kill the Prophet first!"The...the Prophet? What's that?"I don't know! S-someone! And this time, it's not my fault, too!"[2/3]
>>23873223Pinky being tsundere for Midori would be the cutest thing.
>>23873223Then she is not a true yandere, period. You want some real yandere, here you go. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7A3FMgydJHM>Imouto Flavourhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMeRBE1ypY4>Miko-Priestess flavourhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lc8_UwvLhx4>Homicidal loli flavourhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTfByLzmtBk>Cuhrazy Shy/Tsundere-Twin Flavour
>>23873314You step forward to ask her more questions, to get a clearer answer - you've had enough of this cryptic bullshit, you get enough from your phone as it is - when your Shield suddenly snaps back into its original position with a shriek of metal. The world regains its color as time moves on once more - and you're left standing stupidly outside the lavatory, with Misaka looking up at you from her seat."Eh? Murderface, why are you back out so soon?" The girl asks you, puzzled. "Doesn't Murderface need to poop? Is...is there no tissue paper in bathroom?"How do you respond?
>>23873314>"...Too nice," Pinky sobs. "You're...you're too sweet, all of a sudden, Homura-chan...! You're not supposed to be like this to me! You're...you're supposed to hate me! I don't understand...!"These feels.Great Decu Tree, why?
>>23873182Well, the thing was that Homura's 'reward' at the end of the anime for sacrificing everything to save Madoka was to end up in a world where she was the only one knew she ever existed.So I can't exactly l blame her
>>23873328"Smoke sensor in the toilet. Couldn't light up."
>>23873328"I forgot to tell you something important.What you did was stupid and reckless and never do it again.And you saved my life. Thank you."
>>23873343...yeah, this. Good cover.
>>23873343Gonna say this.
>>23873314>Kill the prophet first or Mami will die>Mami will die>MAMIWhoever this Prophet bitch is, she's a dead woman
>>23873328>>23873343>>23873346The Prophet is Oriko, then?As for the yandere debate, I propose we start acting sweet towards Iori, provoke Pinky in a jealousy fit and see what she does. If Iori bites the dust, she's yandere enough and Midori is just lucky.
>>23873343Holy shit agreeing with this.
>>23873328Time freeze has many uses.
>>23873364That is so cruel. And I actually like Iori.It's also really funny, though.
>>23873364Yea, that would fitDickbutt has probably contracted her
>>23873400Pretty sure our new hat with a skull on it says "I do what I want" if she has and is the prophet then she dies anyway
>>23873400I wonder if we should tell him about this.If he hears Mami is in danger, woe betide the perpetrator.
>>23873429We now need a Murderface-Version of this:>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wk0V9Aufrpg&feature=related
>>23873328[x] Write it down int your mental not-.. No, you know what, get something to write, since your mental notes aren`t worth shit and write down on your TO-DO list: >> Going through the Meguca-Database on Megucas who might have some sort of prophetic powers after contraction>> Find out why Jyubey is hellbent on getting back Midori>> Find a way to kill off Incubators for good>> Get revenge on Jyubey for detonating that soulgem, prdferably by killing him to death.>>Try to prevent the Saints from going after you and/or save them from their IncubatorI still believe that an incubator being able to instantly make Megucas Witch-out by pressing the Self-destruct button might be some kind of a big deal in this setting. Fucking you over with a contract is one thing, actively killing you another.
>yfw the prophet is kyoukoffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffu-couldn't find the pic.
>>23873564>yfw the prophet is MidoriFtfy
>>23873564Is this any good?
>>23873564Why her?She just wants Sayaka and to have a good time.
>>23873576>ofw we're the prophet.Not Murderface, us the readers.
>>23873544Speaking of juubey, isnt the killing of our personnel, the attempted destruction of a secured facility and the attempted murder of a former Warmaster and the current warmaster in training should be sufficient provocation and reason to declare open war.
>>23873343"Is that so?" Misaka blinks at your rather sheepish explanation, before she nods - but not without a frown. "Mmm, okay. But, ah, Misaka does not like it when Big Sister Murderface is smoking, you know? Smoking is bad for you, even if you're a Magical Girl! Misaka says this because Misaka looked into side effects of nicotine on someone's respiratory system!"But she didn't mind at all before, way back then. What changed her mind now?"Because Murderface is Misaka's big sister, now! Murderface now more important to Misaka than ever before!"You grin at this, before walking toward to her and ruffling her hair again.Despite the fact that you'd just gone through another one of Pinky's heart-racing tantrums, Misaka still could make you smile like nothing happened. She's a special kid, you'll admit that."Midori-chan doesn't like Big Sister Murderface smoking either, you know." The brown-haired russian arms dealer resumes work on the AI core on her lap. "She says she plans to hide Big Sister Murderface's cigarettes in places where she cannot find them!"...She said that, didn't she? Well. You'll have to see about that, then.It seems that you can talk to Misaka for a bit, here. You can also rifle through the box Kharn gave you, which is stashed under the seat you left earlier.What do you do?Talk to Misaka.Go back to your seat and investigate the box's contents.Go back to your seat and sleep the rest of the way. Everything else can wait until you get back.
So what you guys are saying is>Oriko>Midori>Kyouko>???>Prophet.
>>23873645>[x]Go back to your seat and investigate the box's contents.
>>23873645Misaka is adorable and we love her, but I can't think of any particular route to continue this conversation, and she's busy with Tiny Pete anyway.Mystery box!
>>23873648Add>MisakaShe went and did the prophetic-shit once already.
>>23873460Speaking of Kyubey, I've always wondered what his reaction to his canon counterparts actions would be?
>>23873645>Go back to your seat and investigate t--Hold on. Did we ever give Misaka the chocolate?
>>23873645>Go back to your seat and investigate the box's contents.THE BOXWHAT'S IN THE BOX
>>23873645>[x]Go back to your seat and investigate the box's contents.Let's see if Christmas came early. Or late, depending on your view..
>>23873645box box box box box box boxbox box box
>>23873645Talk to Misaka, we should see how she is handling things and if anything interesting came out from all of Tiny Pete's combat recently
>>23873698...Oh shit no. I vaguely remember that. And it kind of makes sense...I can't choose between Misaka and Mami. I just can't.
>>23873645PRESENTS>Inb4 its all the porn that we bought for souji since his new waifu won't let him keep them.
>>23873706I think we did. It was shortly after we'd arrived in Siberia, I think.
We should think about telling QB the prophet thing.Since in this universe he seems to be less of a jerk, he might actually do something about it.
>>23873698>Healing ideasPls stahp
>>23873645If the thread gets archived with a smoke/smoking related pun the description I shall now be very disappointed in /tg/.

>>23873809That's not true, we don't figure out ALL the twists. Malal's identity sure threw shit in everyone's fan for months.
>>23873809I don't have an good reaction pic to this.So I will just throw this in.
Guys, guys!We forgot to get Kyoko that Soviet hat, didn't we?
>>23873922Jack Daniels on Jack Daniels?
>>23873926didn't we grab her a set of migs though? (though we grabbed a hat then)
>>23873951Those were for Kyoko? I thought those were for us.
So did Decu delete the tweet, or is >>23873809full of shit?
>>23873969I think he is implying that the migs might have a hat on the cockpits.
>>23873926Maybe we remembered offscreen. Or maybe Midori remembered offscreen, since she's our slave-er, assistant now.
>>23873926If she's the prophet, we can give her the hat with a bomb in it.
>>23873984Refresh the page.
>>23874005I just opened Decu's page after the post above, and refreshing it did nothing.But just now it showed up. Maybe it's because I don't actually have a twitter account? Do tweets show up quicker if you're following the person tweeting?
>>23874044Beats me. Twitter is fucking weird. Sometimes it seems like it'll only update if I open it, click over to another tab, and wait for the tab bar to show a new post. Refreshing seems like the slowest way to get new tweets to appear. Hell, sometimes refreshing makes the newest tweets VANISH for a while.

>>23873672 >>23873687 >>23873712 >>23873718You decide to leave Misaka to her work. She looks like she's well and preoccupied with Tiny Pete already - and while the sight of her in bandages and such isn't all that nice of a sight to begin with, she seems chipper enough. You give her another affectionate pat on the head, before walking back to your seat, intent on finding out just what kind of package Kharn gave you. You pull it out from under your seat, before placing it on your lap just as you sit down. A nagging thought pricks at the back of your mind as you try to find a tape edge to worry with a fingernail. Pinky's warning, as cryptic as it was, couldn't have been more direct. Tomoe Mami would die unless this Prophet died. Which meant that you needed to kill someone to ensure the survival of someone important to you. That was simple enough, nothing you haven't done before. But who? What kind of prophet? Did she mean a Magical Girl with...with precognition, perhaps? You've run into those sort of Magical Girls before. You faintly remember a Haruka, one with blonde hair, but that was a long time ago, and-- oh, for fuck's sake. In frustration, you pull the combat knife from the sheath strapped to your ankle - and with the point, you carefully slice through the tape adhering the lid onto the box. Kharn must've used an entire fresh roll of the stuff on the damn thing!After a few more moments, you finally get the lid off. You pull it away and peer into the box's contents, curious as to what needed so much taping up. The former Warmaster did say that it was the package that Malal said to keep for you - along with a few additions from Kharn herself.. . .Well. This is...a surprise. [1/2]
>>23874195Is it dildos?Because that would be a thing.
>>23874214Not just any dildos.Dragon Dildos.The type for two girls to share.
>>23874195Is it a hat?
>>23874195Glorious binding adhesive strips! Praise and glory to the Omnissiah for this wondrous invention!
>>23874195There is what appears to be a disassembled skull inside the package. It doesn't look like a real skull - you're pretty sure the normal skull isn't supposed to have tabs and slots and such, the sort you find in a plastic kit. A skull also isn't supposed to have something resembling a cybernetic eye implant poking out from its sockets, or an antennae, or such. Or inner machinery. Or a slot for triple A batteries. Or a Made in china stamp at the bottom. And the word REMOV scrawled on its forehead with permanent black marker....Did Malal leave you with a skull servitor toy? This was all the rage back then, and you faintly remember Kharn having one for a while. ...On second thought, you also remember that she did in fact name her skull servitor toy Remov, and you've stumbled on her using it as some sort of vocal diary, so--Before you could continue your train of thought here, you see a piece of paper folded and stuffed into one of the skull servitor's eye sockets. You pull it out - it's been folded that way for a long time, by the look of the creases - and you read the short message written there.>You'll need this, someday. >Fill in the missing blanks and all. >Kharn's thoughts, along with my own.>Have Yuma look at it and assemble it for you. It needs some fixing.>Take care of yourself, and don't drink too much.>MalalThe only other item from the box - at least, from what you can tell - is Kharn's old Warmaster Cap. The golden piping has a few parts where it's stained red with blood, but...it's the real deal, that much is obvious. You take it out of the box and turn it over. There's a note folded inside it, too, and you unfold it to read. What you see is rather careful, if stilted handwriting - the kind of stiltedness that comes with writing with blade for hands, most probably.[2/3]
>>23874262>Murderface!>I normally do not apologize in principle. But I want to, because it is you.>Please forgive this foolish, bloodthirsty girl from Siberia.>I only wanted to die with honor. The old way.>I only realize now that it was foolish to think so, or wish for such a death.>Much better to die for someone rather than for yourself, I think.>You are Warmaster now, and I will always be proud to have had you as my friend.>The Blessed Lady protects! Oh, and visit when you can, yes?>Ekaterina Valnikov>P.S. It cannot fit here in box, but I am also giving you my own ushanka as souvenir. You can keep it, Souji says he hates how it smells of bear all the time and it is not a hat for a mother. Do with it what you wish.Heh. Kharn....Well, that's handy. You could give that to Kyoko, Sayaka did ask you to get one for the red-haired Eversor, didn't she?That seems to be everything inside the box, though. Unless you'd like to rummage around more?Look inside the box for a bit more. Maybe there's something hidden in there? Malal's a tricky one.Close the box and try the Warmaster cap on. Just...to see how it looks. See how it feels.Put everything back in the box and sleep. You've still got most of the flight to sleep through.
>>23874289All of these things in order.Also, 'REMOV' as a password for the cellphone, the next time we get it working. I'm sure someone will remember.
>>23874289>Look inside the box for a bit more. Maybe there's something hidden in there? Malal's a tricky one.
>>23874289>Look inside the box for a bit more. Maybe there's something hidden in there? Malal's a tricky one.Always worth looking for more stuff. Then try the hat.
>>23874289put the hat on and keep looking!

Wear Warmaster cap while looking through the box.

>>23874351At the very least proclaiming her intent.
>>23874289>[x]Look inside the box for a bit more. Maybe there's something hidden in there? Malal's a tricky one.There might be a fake bottom or something >Getting an ushankaIts funny because so many people were panicking about that.
>>23874289Look inside the boxMalal did teach thoroughness so she would have hidden something in there
>>23874303 >>23874307 >>23874307 >>23874308 >>23874313You rummage around the box for a bit, while being careful with the more delicate-looking pieces of the disassembled skull servitor toy. If you remember correctly, Malal has a penchant for...well, hiding stuff for you to find later, things that you may find handy at one point in the future. She had that kind of mind that would think about every eventuality, narrow them down to which has the highest probability of happening - as well as the lowest - and prepare for those. She was never caught unaware....well, except when she died, of course. You don't remember much of that, yourself, and Kharn was pretty mum about that. She didn't even spill it the night before you left, when you and her got horribly drunk. The both of you giggled and laughed and cried and cursed about everything, and nearly got into a fistfight, but just before the both of you staggered back to your quarters, she mumbled an apology about being such a horrible person - and you only reached up and gave her a pat on the head. Sure, you had to stand on your tiptoes to do so, and had her slouch a bit for you to reach, but there it was.In any case, your further squirreling about the package reveals what looks like a small white envelope, unsealed. Inside is what looks to be a small wallet-sized picture of a girl with pink hair and crimson eyes, wearing a magical girl costume that was very, VERY familiar. It was obviously a self-taken photo, seeing as the girl was holding a smartphone up with one gloved hand - the other holding a sideways V sign with her fingers over her right eye. A forced smile on her lips.You turn the photograph over, and you see something written at the bottom. >No one must know my secret.>Kaneda Madoka[1/2]
>>23874743...Did you just get a photograph of Malal?There's something else inside the envelope, too. Some kinda strip of fabric, folded carefully....It's a pink ribbon. Nearly red, in fact. The same ribbon that the girl is wearing in the picture. Huh. There's a thing.You place the ribbon and photograph back in the box. After a bit more searching, you come to the conclusion that there is nothing else hidden, and make to close the box.Your eyes fall down to the Warmaster cap, the embroidered skull on its face grinning almost cheekily at you.Well, why not? Just for a bit. You're not ratified yet, yes, but you're NEARLY the Warmaster. Surely there isn't anything wrong if you wore the thing for just a few minutes.You lift the hat of authority carefully from the package, dusting it off, before placing it on top of your head. Pulling down on the sides gently. It's...well, it's a perfect fit. A disturbingly perfect fit. Yet another precaution of Malal's, perhaps?You turn to glance at your own reflection on the nearly-reflective surface of your seat window. . . .Not too bad, you decide. It clashes a bit with your costume, but...you could see yourself wearing it. Maybe with a greatcoat, like Kharn's. With the epaulettes and everything.You face forward, addressing an imaginary squad of Magical Girls."You, get me something to drink." You growl at one, pointing at her. "You. Get Mami over here, have her make me pancakes. You. Fill Sayaka's locker with toothpaste." A grin bares your teeth. "You, take your clothes off--"You stop at that last thought, before reaching up and ripping the hat from your head....You're tired. Yes. That wasn't Kharn's eccentricity bleeding out into the hat and influencing whoever wore it. You're tired, you need some sleep. Maybe you should get some rest.[2/3]
>>23874743Tomboy Madoka + standard Madoka uniform = Oh geez, why couldn't we have had more Tomboy Madoka moments? ;_;
>>23874743And this is Chiaki's revelation on Malal's identity.
>>23874780M-Malal... Why did you have to leave us..
>>23874780>A grin bares your teeth. "You, take your clothes off--"It's a good thing Midori is still sleeping....is she?
>>23874743>Inside is what looks to be a small wallet-sized picture of a girl with pink hair and crimson eyes, wearing a magical girl costume that was very, VERY familiar. It was obviously a self-taken photo, seeing as the girl was holding a smartphone up with one gloved hand - the other holding a sideways V sign with her fingers over her right eye. A forced smile on her lips.I am eagerly awaiting the inevitable drawing of this.
>>23874894I expect a bulging cross-vein, since Malaldoka clearly does not like her magical girl outfit.
I wonder if Pinky knew that Malal was her alternate universe counterpart?
>>23874780You stuff the hat back in the box, jam the lid on the top and slide it back under your seat. Your motions making Midori squirm beside you, her arms seemingly curling around yours once more. You let her - she'd deserved that much - and you pull off your glasses and lean back, closing your eyes.Sleep comes disturbingly easily, but it's...strange. As if it'd been waiting for you all along.. . .You open your eyes again, and...this time, you find yourself standing inside a bar. It looks like Charles' bar, but different. For one, the lighting's bad - it's faint, not illuminating so much as making the darkness dirty. It smells faintly of blood and death and stale whisky, and you've the slightly sinking feeling that there are bodies strewn around the floor or lying propped up in corners, with flies buzzing around them. Some of them are wearing Magical Girl uniforms, each one recognizable.You take a step forward. The sticky crunch of broken glass drowned in blood crinkling a merry tune underfoot. At the noise, the bar's lone occupant turns to look at you. A young woman, probably your age, with tired eyes and brown hair that looks as if it'd been braided tightly before but had only been untied now, as if deciding that she's much too old for them. She's wearing a pink longsleeved sweatshirt with a checkered pattern at the chest - and what appears to be a horrendous amount of blood splashed on her front. Her skirt, a dark maroon, is torn and ripped, but she doesn't seem to mind.[3/4]
>>23875051"...Hey." She murmurs, her voice managing to sound much more...ravaged than yours, despite being quite clear and free of any damage sustained by drinking or smoking. "Wasn't expecting you this early. Can I buy you a drink?"You glance at the bar. There doesn't seem to be anyone staffing it, but the bottle racks are full of Kong bottles. ...As for the girl, she seems to be drinking a tall glass of the stuff. Beside her glass is an ordinary-looking kitchen knife, the surface made dull through years of use in the kitchen. It doesn't even gleam, but it does look sharp.Anyone can buy me a drink.Who are you? What is this place?
>>23875064>Anyone can buy me a drink.>Who are you? What is this place?
>>23875064>Anyone can buy me a drink.>Who are you? What is this place?>porquenolosdos.jpg
>>23875064>Anyone can buy me a drink.
>>23875064Both, yo.Who is this Wendy? Bad news?
>>23875064>Madotsukioh boy, if this is portents of what's to come, we mindfuck now. >[x] Anyone can buy me a drink.
>>23875064>[x]Anyone can buy me a drink."I suppose there is a reason why I am here"
>>23875051>>23875064>A wild Madotsuki appears.Jep, Stoli-Time, just to make sure.
>>23875051[x] Both.Also, I got a real Silver Lights vibe reading that post.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJESxP2s2zE
>>23875128In Yume, she's a lone maybe suicidal girl with a strange connection to dream worlds. We don't know anything else about her, really.
>Kaneda Madoka>KanedaThen... Who's Tetsuo?
Magical Girl Madotsuki.
>>23875234>Hotline Mayumi>Not this instead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qd5StdHmYZUDo you even Yume Nikki?
>>23875553ow my cred
>>23875361I'm obviously missing something. Is this official or just a fanart of what if?
>>23875628It's obviously a fanart depicting Madotsuki as a Madoka magical girl. It's not really something very complicated to understand.
>>23875105>>23875111>>23875128You take a seat on the bar beside her. Sure, you reply, after getting yourself settled. Anyone can buy you a drink. But they should at least have the courtesy of telling you who the hell they are, and where you are right now at the moment."...Wendy." She replies, a small smile on her face. Her accent is...strange. Fluent Japanese, sure, but with the sort of hesitation that Americans had. "When they told me the new Warmaster of the Ninth had a mouth, I wasn't expecting this. Anyway, hold on." She turns towards one corner of the bar, where...a shadowy figure seems to be, where it wasn't a moment before. The girl whispers something to this shadow, and it disappears.You blink at this, and it's then that you realize that you've been holding a glass full of Kong Whisky all along. ...You don't even remember picking it up from the counter, where its paper coaster is."Freaky. I know. Don't think too much about it. I don't." The girl murmurs, before knocking her own glass back, downing it like a champ. She exhales as she places the drained glass down. "You're in a dream. More specifically, you're in my head. Or...or maybe I'm in yours. I'm not clear on that either." She nods at you. "But this isn't the first time we met. I bet you don't even remember who introduced us, do you?"...No, no you don't."...S'okay. Not your fault." She holds out her glass to you, as if asking for a toast - and you oblige her, your full glass and her empty one clinking together. You take a sip from yours, wincing at how it tasted like...like...well, whisky."Don't stress out over it. It doesn't matter, much." Wendy swirls the...what appears to be blood in her glass. "What's going to grind your gears later on are the questions that's been bouncing around in your head for the past few weeks. Which are...well, what I've been wondering about too."[1/2]
>>23875051>>23875361So it's Vomit-chan?>Shanks omylvoiPinky? Since when were you Captcha?
>>23875681Really? What questions are they?"Oh, that's easy." She seems to smile a bit tiredly at this. "The first one - do you like hurting other people? The second - who's left all of those diary entries in that smartphone of yours?" She places her glass down on the counter, and picks up the knife. "...And finally, the third - why are we having this conversation?"Silence, between the both of you.And then--The Golden Desert Eagle is in your hand even before she started moving. A flurry of movement, your glass ending up smashing on the floor into a thousand bits and pieces - and you feel the stinging kiss of a well-honed blade cutting a millimeter into the skin of your neck, just as you press the barrel mouth of your gun against her forehead.". . .The Blessed Lady protect you, Kong," Is all you hear from her, right before she slices your throat open with one quick flick of her wrist. Her face disintegrates into a meaty hole a split second after that, the rest of her body flying back and smashing into the flicking jukebox in the corner.You grasp at your throat, the Desert Eagle slipping from your blood-slickened fingers and thudding heavily onto the floor. You can't breathe no matter how hard you try, and the wound's just too big to try and clasp closed. ...She probably sliced you open near to the bone...You collapse to the floor, choking all the while, trying to pull breath into your lungs with sickening futility. The moment that you die is the moment you wake up, again. Back inside the plane, beside Midori.A quick glance at your smartphone says that it hasn't even been ten minutes since you last checked it.. . .God dammit.
>>23875710[x] Go to car
>>23875710And that should be it for today's thread! Thank you for everyone's participation, the next one will be next weekend! Feedback is quite appreciated!Questions before I go to sleep!
>>23875710It's ok Murderface, sleeping is hard sometimes.
>>23875681>>23875681>"You're in a dream. More specifically, you're in my head. Or...or maybe I'm in yours. I'm not clear on that either." >MGNQ is all a dream that Madotsuki had before she hits the ground.
>>23875710Magical Dream Master Villain Madotsuki.Well, I can die happy now.
>>23875750Thank you for running, Deculture.>>23875753Hahaha I like this idea.
>>23875750Why is Midori the best by such a wide margin?
>>23875750Alright! Thanks for the thread! I'll try to update and upload the Ebook before the thread dies.
>>23875750are we gonna get long-haired chikuwa?
>>23875750Thanks for the thread, this one came as a surprise!
>>23875750Just why are you so handsome and great?
>>23875750..Do you consider yourself a healing-type writer?
So I guess we just met another Warmaster?The simultaneous kill implies It's going to be hard.I wonder If some other Incubator is goinf to scout Oriko for spying purposes
>>23875778Big boobs and she's willing to put out, but nowhere near as dumb and backstabby as Kharn.
>>23875750After the quest ends, would you release artbook notes about potential paths and bits you thought of that didn't end up getting used?
>>23875778I don't know! :'D Maybe because she's talented!>>23875799I hope so! >>23875824Not...not really :'D I wish I was!>>23875820Hahaha no!
>>23875829She sorta got us by surprise. Next time this won't work and it doesn't look like dying in a dream is dangerous, for now. We can handle her.
>>23875851Oh, most likely, yes!
>>23875750Will we ever see what happened to that loser Kyosuke?
>>23875750If we play our cards right and get Pinky to be tsundere for Midori, could we aim for a threesome ending?
>>23875870>Actually wanting to kill Madotsuki
>>23875870We moved before her with a gun and she still managed to slice our throat.That's fast. Pissed Kirika fast.Which is actually pretty fucking fast
>>23875852you thinking of changing gears because someone guessed a planned twists too early?
>>23875886Most probably, yeah!>>23875908That's...I guess that's possible...
>>23875919To be honest, it's in her dream world. I wouldn't try to fight Madotsuki in her dream world, but that doesn't necessary mean she's as fast in real life.Still, caution is advised.
>>23875944Everyone shut up, we have confirmation that the best end is possible. This is now out goal.
>>23875938Hmm, no, not really. The course is set, and changing it around like this is sort of cheating.
>>23875980How many months till next thread?
>>23876025Give It two weeks.Decu is on the roll
>>23875944Looks like everything is coming up Zoidberg!
>>23875909They she tried to kill us.
>>23876090So did Pinky, and yet we get >>23875908
>>23876090who knows what she tried?
>>23876090She said beforehand that its a dream. You can`t kill anyone in a dream.
>>23876119That's totally different. Pinky acts adorably moe as fuck sometimes. If Matsokuducky wants adoring fans, she'll have to prove herself.
>>23876173You can't be sure of that in a world where killing happens inside SOMEONE'S dream.
>>23876183I think she just proved herself several inches into Chiaki's neck....Wait that came out kind of gross
Well we got the next hurdle ahead of us when we get back. Getting the aides. Sayaka is going to be a problem.
>>23876090THAT'S HOW MAGICAL GIRLS SAY HELLO YOU NITWIT
>>23876244The only militant aides we need reside within the golden weapons. One girl army ho!
>>23876244Getting Kyoko is not a bad idea. Getting Sayaka is fucking retarded, beyond retarded even.Do you really want us to have a aide that will question us every turn? That's what we do not need in subordinates. Will give a bad example in front of other girls and make us seem lesser in front of our peers.
>>23876244Even after we give her girlfriend a sweet hat?If we can actually sit on our overwhelming sarcasm gene and memetric hatred of her, we can probably get her to come around on most things, honestly.If all else fails, at least she could be useful in a "she would fuck someone up if they were a threat to Mami" scenario which is fast approaching.
>>23876244>Sayaka is going to be a problem.Haha no. We just need to act like a cold superior.>Miss Miki, I believe that comment was unnecessary.>Miss Miki, I don't think that's the tone to use when dealing with. your. superior.>Miss Miki, I believe I gave you an order. Something you value SO MUCH.
>>23876294a contrasting point of view could prove usefulas long as sayaka follows orders to the letter it doesn't matter if she hates our guts.I have a feeling she wouldn't appreciate us monopolizing kyouko either, gotta take both or none.do we even have any other aide candidates?
>>23876294I would say having an aide that will question us is probably not a bad idea, actually. Also, archive's up.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Quest
>>23876343But we already have Midori as the voice of reason
>>23876331As long as she doesn't object and question us in public and in front of other girls then I can live with it.But if she does, then she has to go.Though I think she's professional enough not to do that....
>>23876354There will be too much workload for Midorin to handle on her own. She's good but she's no Malal
>>23876354we need a opinion with no rabu-rabu bias
>>23876379This Wendy girl seems like a real up-and-comer.Let's get her.
>>23876294The only thing worse than an aide who hates your guts is a cabinet full of grovelling yes-men. We may not get along well with Sayaka, but as long as she can keep things professional it will definitely pay to have someone around to play the devil's advocate.
>>23876379>>23876411That's what QB is for. Honestly, we're not building a nation here. If Kharn managed to be an awesome Warmaster, I get the feel the job involves a lot of murdering and little to no issues where having an aide that hates our guts would be beneficial. Sayaka is too much trouble to be worth it.
>>23876379we need an opinion without hate-hate bias?Really, 3 aides, isn't that a bit excessive? Usually a warmaster has just one, having 3 of them would just tell other offices and warmasters that our office lacks skilled magical girls. People should think of ramifications of their choices instead of trying to build a harem everywhere.Personally, I think just Mami would have been the best aide
>>23876302>If we can actually sit on our overwhelming sarcasm gene and memetric hatred of her, we can probably get her to come around on most things, honestly.I agree. IIRC, relations between us were actually starting to warm up a bit before we left for Siberia. I imagine it would be quite feasible to get at least to the level of a civil working relationship, even if we may not ever call each other "friends".
>>23876411Russia's average govenment would easily prove you otherwise.Chiaki has /tg/ mind.Now we only need some not retarded mascots
>>23876424I honestly think Malal was actually running the Officio while Kharn did all the awesome stuff Mami would be a good choice, but I got the impression she was closer to a secretary for Kyuubey already, and wouldn't be interested.
>>23876433>I think just Mami would have been the best aideI agree, however, she seems to have already been taken by QB as his personal secretary.
>>23876473>>23876498Hmm, I guess QB wouldn't appreciate us stealing his secretary.... sigh
>>23876473>>23876498Gaiz, what about Yuma?
>>23876528We know she's apparently mechanically inclined, since Malal suggested we have her fix the servo-skull. But beyond that, and her being a Culexus, we don't know much about her.
>>23876536The one who will put our skull together.>>23874262
>>23876528That...might be a good idea, actually. I hadn't thought about Yuma, but it would be a good position for the Last Culexus anyway.
>>23876556Oh, okay. Must have missed it.Have we had encounters with her before?
>>23876571We're about to. And Kyoko knows her well from the QB contracting and Christmas specials. So for all we know (and are about to find out), she's a good girl.
>>23876528Didn't Malal explicitly take her as her protege?it was kinda implied in the christmas special
>>23876370Midori seems to have a lot of potential, given Malal's wholehearted endorsement and the whole Sibera arc stuff, but that's also a potential weakness for her: she's inexperienced. She doesn't seem to have a lot of experience in dealing with people, and will certainly be thrust far outside of her comfort zone if she formally becomes Warmaster's Aide. I don't doubt that she'll help Chiaki grow immensely both as a Warmaster and as a person, but she doesn't necessarily compensate for many of Chiaki's weaknesses. Not to mention the possible backlash from appointing her as an aide; I'm sure the rank-and-file may be OK with that given their infatuation with the Magical Midori series, but it may further inflame Jyubey and make irk a few other Officios. Not to mention that she's been part of the Officio for barely a week. If she gets appointed, she will need to learn quickly and accomplish much to prove that this was an unconventional but great idea. Kyouko's probably the best choice, professionally speaking, but Sayaka needs to be placated or dealt with. If Malal's tenure was any indication of how an Aide will work, then Kyouko may as well be Chiaki's shadow. There was talk of creating another position for her that won't effectively demote her from Rank Leader while allowing her more time with Kyouko. Perhaps something along the lines of a Vice Warmaster? If she thinks that she can do a better job than Chiaki, then she'll get a chance to move up to a more influential position within the Officio and prove it. As for Yuma, we don't know much about her other than that she's apparently good with machines and is a bit of an otaku.
