One year and eight months ago, you were a Magical Girl.Sent to visit the Eighth Officio in America, along with the Equerry of the Ninth and your direct superior.You'd expected this to be just a simple milk run. Just be the requisite honor guard for the Equerry, not that she needed guarding in the first place. A decent chance to get out of Mitakihara and go sightseeing, bring back a couple of souvenirs for your significant other.As it turned out, it was completely the opposite.
>>26427722You didn't expect the weather being so fucked up that you hallucinated a pink-haired girl with black pits for eyes cackling about how Kyoko was going to die in the immediate future. You didn't expect being reminded how shitty your school life was, to the point that you very nearly started an war between three Officios - including your own.You didn't expect being asked to go into a deactivated Silent Room, where a Magical Girl was being caged like an animal. A crazed animal that could corrode anything metal and flesh just by being in the same vicinity. To get close enough to her to slap a Culexus collar around her neck, which would...make her easier to deal with, or something. You're not too sure about the particulars, there, but that's what you've been told.But of all the things you didn't anticipate, it's wearing this...strange suit of armor that they've stolen from god knows where, and actually being comfortable in it. As if you've worn it before, somehow. As if it was made to fit you exactly, molded to your own shape.It's probably just a convenient coincidence, though. You probably would have been weirded out by it, how the armor seemed to fit you like a glove, if you were just as superstitious and irrational as most of your fellow Magical Girls. You've heard some of them murmur prayers and appeals to a 'Blessed Lady', whispering her name for luck just before throwing themselves into the fray. Nothing harmful, all told, but it spoke of a reliance to something ethereal, something unknowable - something that probably doesn't exist....Then again, you've seen weirder things in your tour of duty. Things that really have no right to exist, no matter how much Kyuubey reassures you that they're nothing to worry about. There were also your dreams, which you've never really taken seriously, despite them being so frighteningly real that you stayed awake for nearly a week after a particularly-harrowing one. [1/2]
>>26427727Afraid that if you closed your eyes, you'd see Kyoko impaled at the end of your sword again, her limp form twitching around the blade as it cut into her spine.Maybe...maybe a Blessed Lady isn't really that far fetched, considering you usually fought a twisted manifestation of despair incarnate two, maybe three times a week.Maybe it wasn't such a sign of weakness to at least say something. If she didn't exist, fine, all you wasted was a breath and a couple of words you won't be needing back. But if she's real...well, it probably coudn't hurt. May at least improve your chances of getting back to Kyoko in one piece.Not a bad tradeoff, then."Alright, Sayaka, do you hear me?" Malal's vox-corrupted voice is scratchy through the headset you're now wearing underneath the helmet. "Checking to see if we've got comms straightened out."You reply to the affirmative as you stand in front of the inner entrance leading into Sub Zero, the Eighth's biggest Silent Room. Malal, Totally Awesome Sweet Alabama Liquid Snake, and Amber are outside the outer entrance, which had slammed closed and locked behind you earlier with the sepuchral finality of a heavy coffin door being shut. "Good. Now, you've got the collar with you, right? And the two Grief Seeds in case you need them?"Yes. You've got them. Malal saw you place them in your inventory. Reckless as you've sometimes been, you're not as stupid as to get into this kind of thing without a spare Grief Seed or two."Good. Now, the Anti-Magic Field for the Silent Room proper is still up. The moment we open the inner door is the moment we're turning it off completely. So you need to get inside the room as quickly as you can, because we'll only be giving you a couple of moments before we close it again. This is in case Sabrina gets it into her mind to try and break out."[2/3]
Fully armored Sayaka-chan!
>>26427729Of course. Perfectly logical. It's what you would do, anyway."...Right." A moment of seeming hesitation from the Equerry. "Is...is there anything you'd like to say before we get this op started, Sayaka?"What, your last words? Your chuckle echoes around the metal helmet you've clamped down on your skull. What does she think this is, some third-rate anime or soap opera?"...No. I'm just trying to ask you if you've got a message to pass to someone, just in case."You roll your pauldron-encased shoulders, trying to get used to the armor just a bit more. Sure, this is all nice and snug and maybe comfortable, but you're not going to be able to move as quickly or as fluidly as you could with just your costume.Just in case, huh...?How do you respond?
Threadly reminder that the updated Ebook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDbEbook will be updated an hour or so after Chikuwa.
>>26427735[X] Nothing that I'd rather not say in person.
Rolled 16>>26427735"I'd do it myself. Kyoko would hate it if I didn't."
Rolled 6>>26427735"Can I get a set of what Amber's wearing? It looks good. (On Kyoko)"
"Why couldn't we do this while she was asleep exactly? Or knock her out with a stun gun?"
>>26427792Oh god.Do it.The unspoken "on kyoko" will ignite flags.
>>26427735[x] "Now I'm not saying I believe in jinxing...but fuck no. And if things go to shit you can quote me on that. I'm sure Kyōko would appreciate it."
>>26427735[X] "Tell Kyoko not to make a mess."
>>26427756Whoops, meant to have my name on when I mentioned the Ebook.>>26427735>[X] "Nothing I can't tell them myself when I come back."
>>26427735[X] I'll them myself when we get back.
>>26427778Alternatively: "...'Love me do'. She'll understand." Just because I wanted an excuse to post this one, really.
>Twitter doesn't update>miss the voting windowFUCK IT I'M VOTING ANYWAY.>>26427735[x] "Fuck bitches, kill witches."
Wonder why Sundays are always slow.
>>26427907Isn't that Kirika's line?
>>26427916Sunday mornings are usually pretty slow. It'll pick up in two hours or so.
>>26427927>morningHA HA I FUCKING WISH
This seems relevant.
>>26427735"No. Screw you. I´m coming back alive whether you want it or not!"We`ve had enough of this bullshit and now they have so little faith in us that they think we will die even if we are killed.
>>26427735"...Tell Kyouko I said 'hi'."
>>26427735I like this. [x]>>26427792
Wow, it looks like Sayaka is having some bad nightmare about the other timelines.I wonder if the others are having nightmares as well? Or if not then why?Perhaps it as something to do with the always in turning into a witch in every timeline she contracts?
>>26428046could be Sayaka's dream is predicting the future - we have seen Midori running around wearing Girl A's face after all.
>>26428104>My face when the twist is that Chiaki will die and we'll have to finish the quest as Midori pretending to be her.
>>26428122Aside from the obvious drawback of Girl A being dead, I... actually think this would be quite piquant.
>>26428122If we make more retarded decisions at crucial times this is something that might happen. >Miracle fucking Midori takes up our legacy and tries to stop Pinky from ending the worldThat reminds me, I can`t fucking wait to the next Midori write-up!
>>26428122>"The girl with the pink hair said if I kill you, I become you Sempai."
>>26428147I personally am waiting on the sayakaxamber writeup./stares at cooldown
>>26428158Yandere end twist is fine too.
>>26428158Chiaki's response: "Why in hell would you want to BE me?!"
>>26428185Because being your own boss is the American dream.
>>26428200but midori is japanese bro
>>26428185>>26428170>One of the few people to actually care about us, and the only one getting use to clean up decides to murder us so she can use our skin as a body suit>Themurderfaceexperience.jpeg>>26428207And AMERICA is the world
>>26428200But they're Japanese...
>>26428220Geography must get confusing in that caseImagine waiting at the American airport to board a plane from America to America with a stopover in America for refueling
>>26428240hey man, America has states for that kind of thing.
>>26427778 >>26427782 >>26427832 >>26427836You bounce on your feet a couple of times, trying to get rid of the tension in your frame, amused at how much of a din you're making. With all the armor plates banging around with your every move, you sound like a fucking kitchen during an earthquake."Sayaka? Sayaka, are you there? Mary, are you sure the Anti-Magic Field is off where Sayaka is? I can't--" You hear Malal panic slightly on air, and you chuckle again before replying.No, no last words, you say with a grin hidden by your helmet's faceplate. Nothing you can't tell the person concerned in person when you come back - and besides, even if you were that much inclined to leave a message, it's none of their business anyway."...Alright, Sayaka. We'll open the door and shut down the field on your mark. Once you've got her collar on, just send a signal and we'll get you out of there. Good hunting--"There's a sudden fumble of microphones at the other end, followed by a muffled vox-corrupted squawk of surprise - and suddenly, Mary Sue's voice comes on."Sorry 'bout that. Sorry, sorry...Mickey!" She all but shouts your stupid nickname into your ear, making you wince. "I'm just, uh, I meant what I said earlier! If you don't want to got through with this, it's okay to chicken out! We'll just send someone else--"What? She's telling you this now? ...No, seriously, it's fine. For fuck's sake, you already told her in the coolest way possible. Is she trying to upstage you or something? ...Goddamn americans, really can't read the mood..."Hahah..! S-sorry, just...t-this really means a lot, ya know. Not just to the Officio an' everyone here, but...to me, too." Mary Sue's voice, excitable and irritatingly cheerful as it is, becomes subdued, low-key. "Whatever happens, Mickey, I owe you one. An' a Springfield never forgets."What, like an elephant, then?[1/2]
>>26428252"Exactly! ...Wait, what? Didja just call me an elephant--"You shake your helmeted head, before telling Mary to get off the frequency and get Malal back on. Besides, it's too early for any gratitude - you haven't even stepped into the room proper, for fuck's sake."Y-yeah. Sorry." A giggle. "Uh, Miss Malal, here you go--" Another series of muffled talking, and the reassuring voice of the Culexus replaces that of the Warmaster in Training. "Right. Before we were unexpectedly interrupted...good luck, Sayaka. The Blessed Lady protects."...Heh. The Blessed Lady protects, indeed.You give them the signal, and the metal double doors in front of you unlock themselves with a series of clicks, before sliding apart. Showing nothing inside beyond a misty, smoky darkness. Well, here goes. You step forward, your new armor clanking with every step. Into the room, into the darkness.The door behind you slams shut literally a moment after you've cleared the threshold."Both entrances on total lockdown. Anti Magic Fields disabled." Malal intones. "You're on your own, Sayaka. Operation Start."Right. Operation Start, indeed.You walk forward, deeper into the room, making sure to keep your eyes open and your ears sharp. ...As sharp as they could be, anyway, trapped inside a strange helmet that looks like something out of some eldritchian nightmare.For a Silent Room belonging to the highly-funded, much-lauded Eighth...the insides of Sub Zero resembles that of an untidy, abandoned stockroom.Even in the horrible lighting conditions - with only a few flickering lights here and there to provide illumination to some of the wide and vast room's corners - you could easily see that Sub Zero didn't start out, exactly, as a holding pen for contracted prisoners. [2/3]
>>26428240No wonder americans are retarded by default: They suffer instant SAN-loss at birth.
>>26427730Why is Madoka covered in chocolate?
>>26428257From the suggestion of what could have been living areas, and the still-disassembled frames of bunk beds, and the rusting lockers...this was supposed to be a Culexus housing facility. For Culexus to be able to enjoy interaction, at least with each other, without fear of making people around them throw up or get an embolism or something....As much flak as you give them, as frank you are to their faces that you're uncomfortable around them - you can't help but admire someone who'd sacrifice so much to serve. You're pretty sure they didn't wish for something that'd benefit themselves, as no one would probably wish to live such a cursed existence. No, they probably wished for something so altruistic, so selfless, that they ended up cursing themselves. Their wish benefited someone else completely, with nothing left for them but the karmic check to pay for. Not a wish at all, but a curse....Well, that, or they just wanted to be able to wear leather 24/7. Who knew, really?With nothing but your own breathing at the clanking of your armor as company - and no Sabrina Blackburn spotted so far - you let out a sigh in frustration, before stopping as you see a dark form huddle against the corner of the farthest end of the room. A light flickers above it, making it flinch - revealing itself as a young woman, slightly taller than you, wearing a grimy hospital gown, her dirty ashen-blonde hair hanging down her shoulders in tangled clumps. She seems to be pressing her hands against the metal of the walls, making wet handprints the color of rusting blood.Visual on the target, you notify Malal. She acknowledges this with a burst of static, before reminding you not to damage her too much. Just to subdue her, nothing more.Right. Well. You're not melting yet at least, so maybe this could turn out peacefully.How do you approach Sabrina?
>>26428243The post never mentioned states just that AMERICA is the world so everything would be called AMERICA
>>26427735>>26428252Awesome. Just in time, Decu.>>26428267[X] Slowly and in full view. The last thing you want is to startle/ freak out the girl.
>>26428267enter slowly, hand her the suit, tell her it will keep her from melting everything if she puts it on
>>26428267This girl turns every place she goes into Silent Hill. Surely, this will go well.
>>26428267[X] Cautiously.Use your bad touch powers for good, not evil.
>>26428267[x] Friendly greeting."So, you're Blackburn then, I presume? Not like anyone else would still be around in here... I'm here to help you with your 'melting everything forever' problem."
>>26428301Not until we start seeing Pyramid Heads Anon, not until that.
>>26428267[X] don't startle her, make her understand that we're here to help.>maybe Pinky did give Sayaka a weapon, but Sayaka discarded/refused it and then later Kirika picked it up/got it as a gift?
>>26428267Well. with the armor on, it's not like there's much chance of approaching silently at all. [X ]I guess a "Hello? I'm here to help" sort of thing would be a good way to start off? Not really sure. Whatever the case, be as non-threatening as possible.
>>26428267[x]"Uh.. hi! My name is Miki Sayaka, I´m from the Ninth Officio in Mitikahara, Japan. You are Sabrina-san, right? I´m here to help you. Uh.. don`t mind the silly attire."[x] Try not to freak her out.This girl has been holed up here for quite some time and Sayaka has no reason to be a bitch to her.
>>26428267Wow, considering how we look. I am not sure if we can appear friendly.Well the clock is ticking....>[x]Enter slowly, let her get used to your presence.
>>26428317All things considered, sneaking up on her is the last thing we want.
>>26428311[x] something like that
>>26428267[x] Stay still, and speak."Hey there. Sabrina, right? Listen, I know this armour looks freaky as hell, but I'm here to help you. You wanna leave this room, right?"
>>26428267Call out to her, say that Mary-Sue has sent us to help her and we are coming to help her stop melting things
>>26428315Considering what we're wearing, I think we ARE the Pyramid Head here.
>>26428267"I'm the mermaid monster and I'm here to eat you."
>>26428267try not to startle her, tell her Mary Sue sent us to help get her out of this hole
>>26428340If only this had blue hair.
>>26428338Nyet, we haven't even raped a single Meguca yet. I wonder what Sabrina's wish was.>>26428348That's a light shade of blue, just about Sallaka's shade.
>>26428311>>26428320[x] Those combined while pulling your helmet off to show her, that you are indeed a human being. Wearing the armor was probably a bad Idea in the first place. I mean, look at this thing, it doesn`t exaclty scream 2NON-THREATENING!" at you.
>>26428345[X]forget my check - sorry
>>26428367Taking the helmet off?We won't look 'human' for long if we do that.
>>26428359>I wonder what Sabrina's wish was"I wish I had my own room"
>>26428367You'd eat those words if she's really gone crazy here and the first thing she tries to do is Shining Finger us.
>>26428367Well at least I don't need to worry about what idiotic ideas people will think to do.Removing Sallaka's helmet isn't that bad, so far as batshit retarded things to do goes.
>>26428378I'd seriously wish for that. Sleeping in the living room sucks balls at times.>>26428384If you have to, do only so Sabrina knows we aren't going to do anything unwanted, and for a brief moment.
>>26428377I wonder how Sayaka rotted so quickly in that route. Wasn't Kyouko only a day late?
>>26428267[X] walk directly up to her and put the collar around her neck. Do not talk do not pause. Talk later.
We need to pull Wolverine hereand gently approach her while our everything is melting off.>Does It hurt miss?>Not as much as other things I've experienced. Please, take the damn thing already
>>26428267>Hey there. I'm here to get you out of this place, how does that sound?And a as-friendly-as-possible-with-this-suit wave.
>>26428399Well, bam! Have a silent room.No need for thanks
>>26428403Japanese summers are muggy. Sayaka's nonmagical corpse had enough time to cook.
>>26428431This, but replace Mary Sue with "Totally Sweet Awesome Liquid Snake... Alabama"
>>26428399>>26428418Why would you blame the Incubator for that? He just offers you work in exchange for a wish. Blame fate, karma or yourself for fucking you over.Remember, if you just sucked it up and changed your fate through hard work instead of such a silly thing as a wish, all this wouldnt have happened.
>>26428311 >>26428317 >>26428320 >>26428335You decide to go for the friendly approach. Hopefully it goes over okay - friendly isn't something you do very often. Or very well, at that."Yo!" You raise an armored hand towards her, slowly and carefully, trying your best to be as non-threatening as possible. Your voice sounding weird and hollow from inside the helmet, and spoken in the thin air of the Silent Room. "Sabrina, right? My name's Miki Sayaka, I'm from the Eighth Officio."The silence in the Silent Room - even if Malal had all but confirmed that the Anti-Magic Field's been turned off - is so thick it's palpable. The girl doesn't even turn around or even move to acknowledge you. You take this as a good sign - at least she's not being aggro, which is the main thing here.You try to fill the empty air, here. Get her accustomed to hearing you talk. "Listen, I know this armor looks freaky as hell, but I'm here to help you." You pause here, to see if she'd react at all. The girl remains motionless, and you continue. "You wanna leave this room, right? I can help you get out of here--""Why?" Sabrina suddenly speaks, her voice rough, hoarse, deep from too much crying, too much screaming. "Why'd they turn it off? I'm hearing their voices again. I-it was fine, it was quiet, before they turned it off."O...kay. Apparently she wasn't even listening to you. Probably means the Anti-Magic Field, huh..."I was okay before they turned it off, I...I couldn't hear them before they turned it off." She rests her head against the blood-smeared wall, her shoulders shaking as she continues to speak - her words tumbling out of her mouth in a panicked, desperate torrent. "W-why'd they turn it off? Please, they need to turn it back on again." Sabrina's voice rises to a keening wail as she bangs her bloodied fists against the metal wall. [1/2]
>>26428678Screeching, crying up to the ceiling above her, where the rusted husk of a surveillance camera rotted in its perch. "TURN IT ON! PLEASE, TURN IT BACK ON! I DON'T WANNA HEAR THEM AGAIN, PLEASE! TURN THE ROOM BACK ON, I PROMISE I WON'T TRY TO SNEAK OUT AGAIN! I PROMISE TO BE GOOD! PLEASE!"You step forward, to try and calm the hysterial Magical Girl down - before you catch a whiff of scorched metal. You glance down, and see that the tips of your gauntlets are glowing red, as if you've just stuck your hands into a furnace. You grind thumb and forefinger tip together carefully - and you notice flakes of crimson rust fall down to the ground from the point of contact.It's not even warm, despite all appearances - but even you know that the metal's being slowly eaten through. You look down at the rest of your suit, and notice the same thing happening to the various points and edges of the armor's plates. Burning, smoking pockmarks here and there, rust flaking off with every movement....Shit. Not much time to fuck around, then.How do you react?
The collar will help to keep the voices out.
>>26428729"Put this on, and we can stop the voices."
>>26428729[X] Restrain her and put the collar on. Try to calm her down while we do so.
>>26428729[X] I have something for you that will help, I'm here to help Mary keep her promise!
>>26428729Give her the suit, tell her to put it on so they can turn the silence back on
>>26428729[x]FINE. YOUR PUNISHMENT IS TO TAKE THE DAMN COLLAR.DO THAT AND WE'RE RESTORING THE FIELD
>>26428729[x] Get her attention. Make her calm down. Present collar."I'm going to put this on you. It might help with the voices. If it doesn't, you tell me, okay?"
>>26428729[X] Stay calm, report what you heard to Malal while giving her the collar.>>26428715No kidding. This can only get worse if she went Alma.>>26428619Teenagers. Not exactly the most mentally stable people.
>>26428729[x] "The sooner you put this on, the sooner we can stop the voices."Try and make it voluntary, before using force. Also take note that the 'voices' she's hearing are magical based. Could be worth looking into. It's possible she can use telepathy and can't control it.
>>26428729[x] Continue with the friendly approach. the rust will only get worse if she focuses it on us instead of magically flailing about.
>>26428729[x]Pull off helm[x]Hold up up the collar[x] "Calm down! This is why I am here. Look, this thing here will help you with your powers and will make the voices stop. But you need to wear this. "
I am still trying to remember who Sabrina is referencing.
>>26428729Walk towards her slowlyThey will turn it back on soon but first we have some equipment for you that will help stop the voices, once we get it sorted out you won't hear the voices ever again and you will be able to go outside, you will be able to see the sun again. Wouldn't you like that?
>>26428729Tell her we can't can't turn it back on. The collar will work in it's stead. Then jump in there and get it on as quickly as possible.
>>26428729>[x]shout "This suit has its own anti-magic field. Let me put this on you and you won't hear them ever again!"Start tying to put the suit on.
>>26428729[x]"Hey, Sabrina! I'm not a voice, I'm a friend! Mary sent me in with something to help you. Just give me a chance, if you put this on, it should solve your problems!"Walk towards her, slowly. We need to at least close the distance in case we end up having to rush her down.
I know we're all about diplomacy and stuff, but shouldn't we try to hasten the things a bit? Doesn't look like she's in the mood to listen to what we're saying...
>>26428729Since slapping her to establish dominance might backfire...[X] calmly walk directly up to her and snap the collar around her neck.Tell her while doing so that they will turn the room back on if she wears the collar.
>>26428803Some of us want a melted mermaid.
>>26428789I don't think we've had a physical description of her before, so we won't know until we save her and get her cleaned up.
>>26428826I am still holding out for Spellman.
>>26428758>[X] I have something for you that will help, I'm here to help Mary keep her promise!seconding.
>>26428729>>26428779[x]Sure, try this.
>>26428789The name Blackburn sounds familiar. Killer 7?
>>26428729[X] Keep talking. Try to calm her down. Have her focus on your voice, ignore the others. Assure her that she's a good girl, that the collar will help the other voices quiet down. Once she puts the collar on, they can turn the room back on.
>>26428729[X] start cautiously closing the distance between us, we need to get within reaching distance of her."Mary Sue sent me with something to stop the voices, you just need to put this on ok?'
Maybe we'll get Amber points if we save Sabrina properly.
>>26428789Sabrina is referencing Sabitsuki from .flow, a Yume Nikki clone notable for trying to have some discernable story (although it's still very vague and open to interpretation). The gist is basically as we've seen here, Sabi is host to some form of virulent infection or biological agent that "rusts" everything around her, eventually including her own flesh and mind, and is either pursued or held captive by a squad of gas-masked nurses with violent tendencies.
>>26428879Ahhh. Thanks anon!All those Japanese games out for my SAN points.
>>26428851Curtis and Ayame Blackburn, so yeah, Killer7.Sabrina secretly in charge of organ harvesting/child slave trafficking.
>>26428879Damn son, and I thought Alma had it bad.
>>26428879Darn, how much acid do I need to be on to play these games?
>>26428932All of the acid anonAll of it
>>26428932As much as what was needed to make them.
>>26428932Not enough, apparently.
pastebin.com/Aq1CmgEA Sabrina's file, gents.
STRENGTH ASPEED BMELEE BHaha, we are in for a good fight.
>>26429045We really need to track down that fucking cat and shoot off her fucking legs. Wait no, this will make us recruit her, lets just BLAM her for heresy.
>>26429082More like we're in for a PIME TARADOX if we're not careful and get Mickey's ass killed.
>>26429114>implying Sayaka can die, even if she's killedOnly Soul Gem destruction can keep her down for more than a minute.
>>26429045We already lost a ton of points with Yuma, maybe we can go for Sabrina later on and have a second chance at getting someone with a hardsuit and moe personality.
>>26429119>Implying her ability to make fucking everything decay won't also melt our soul gem into dust
>>26429109you wouldnt want to recruit her?because seriously, we could use someone like her getting us intel, it would be shittonnes better than what coobs gives us
>>26429114We will just find out that Sayaka got a rotten spot that never healed. We will then discover it during Kyoko quest when we sex her.
>>26429139That was only because we brought up something she didn't really want to talk about.
>>26429170"Hey! Answer my questions or I'll melt your fucking tits off!"Espionage at its finest.
>>26429166Metal and flesh. Soul gem has a little of the former but it could probably be repaired if damaged.The actual gem itself is in no danger.
>>26429180clearly not following the conversation...
>>26429182I don't think we're been conveniently shown an actual limit to the melting power, and now isn't a good time to experiment with an optimistic heart!
>>26429180That fucking cat as in the neco-arc of mg's are real.com
>>26429211Oh I'm retarded, thank you for explaining to my dumb ass. Someone said 'cat' with a picture of Coobs so I assumed we were talking megucas.I stand by the rest though. American-style espionage is clearly threats.
>>26429211We'll get to that in a thread or so. I'm with the knee-capping party though, that bitch needs to talk.
>>26428267Oh hey, It's corner guy.
decu where are youare we melted yet
>>26429208But now -is- a good time to experiment.It isn't like Sallaka is going to -die- or anything.Of course, he could always have Pinky there to offer her a Golden Weapon in exchange for keeping her from dying.
>>26429229Best kind of espionage
>>26429281I don't think we've ever heard a guarantee that we can't game over by causing a time paradox. And Decu has given us choices before in past flashbacks that could have possibly done just that.
>>26429234a softer approach might be needed, getting NECO to give us information willingly would be ideal.getting violent with reporters is not a very good thing to do, especially one so skilled in infiltration.
>>26429281But what kind of weapon could do that?> So this is where the shield comes in.
>>26429313Eh, I think the thing to remember here is that she interviewed Malal. She's obviously been around for a long time and Kyubey hasn't done anything. Probably because, ultimately, she's just a hack with a laptop and a website that nobody takes seriously. If she were an actual threat, Kyubey would've killed her a long, long time ago. Maybe guessing here, but it sounds reasonable to me.
>>26429313Perhaps. Lack of sleep is getting to me.>>26429373Maybe. But who knows? Chiaki might just be her "big break", so to speak.
>>26429373Yeah, but know she's blurting out intel on an active operation. Considerably bigger deal than baseless rumours and made-up stat sheets.
>>26429373That and who knows. The more followers on Twitter might mean the more popular she gets in-story. Not sure if Decu would do that though, but it would be interesting.
>>26429373She's on Kyubey's payroll
Is it time?
>>26429479She IS Kyubey....Okay, even I'll admit that's pants-on-head retarded.
>>26429523That does bring up an interesting question, though.What if a magical girl wished to be an incubator?
>>26429373My current operating theory is that she's actually Ruri herself. But we'll find out in due time I guess.
>>26429582DECULTURE!Oh god we've already fucked it up. We don't say these until some random point after Nihao Nyan
>>26429598...or is it?
>>26429544I assume the incubator laughs at them. But in a really annoying way, because they can't feel emotion. Or they're not supposed to, anyway...
>>26429604No it's really dumb.
>>26429544Wouldn't they be a really shitty incubator? like, jyuubey level? Because their wish's effects are directly proportional to their potential for despair. So madoka wishes to help, becomes godoka.Or if your really unlucky they take it literally and make you into some other sort of incubator. bonus points for mg's being witch incubators anyway
>>26429270are you thinking of SCP-187?
>>26429624>witch incubatorYou rang?
>>26428749 >>26428756 >>26428762 >>26428769Malal wasn't kidding when she said that Sabrina might have a few screws loose after her stint here, fine. But this isn't just being slightly unhinged - this is crazy. Pure, undiluted, the sort you don't get involved with. Someone broken hard enough that they're just desperately clinging into whatever scraps of sanity they had left....You can't help but feel sorry for Sabrina. No one deserves their Wish to turn around and bite them in the ass like this. In fact, you feel sorry enough that it loops around to being...well, slightly puzzled about the Eighth. About Mary. Surely, even with their often overbearing sentimentality, the Americans would've recognized a lost cause the moment they saw it? That keeping Sabrina locked away like some caged animal was far more inhumane and cruel than just giving her the bullet to the Soul Gem that she deserved? ...You could do that, right now. Grant her the mercy she deserved.You let out a sigh between gritted teeth. ...No, no time for doubt, not right now. Your orders are to get the stupid collar on her, nothing else. And orders are rarely up for interpretation, no matter how much you wanted them to be.Pulling out the collar from your inventory - the obsidian ring glowing a faint red, as angular veins of crimson light pulsed across its surface, in time with an unheard heartbeat - it's here that you step forward. Carefully. Cautiously. Slowly, with both your hands raised.You try to tell her - above her sobbing - that you have something to help with the voices. You just need to put it on her, and the voices'll stop for good. And it won't hurt a bit - it's just some sort of fancy collar, after all. She just has to wear it and it's done. Nothing to be afraid of, right?"It...it can help?" Sabrina seems to snap out of her crying, turning to look at you with bloodshot eyes. "You...you can make it stop?"[1/2]
>>26429688You nod, trying to look as reassuring as you could while wearing a helmet with eyeless, gaping pits for eyes and a fanged, toothy grimace for a mouth. You take another cautious step. And another. Closing the distance between you little by little.She seems to be calming down, at least. Sneaking a look at your gauntlets, the scorch marks seem to be cooling, no longer glowing red-hot as before. Good. That's good. Maybe this won't be too bad after all. Maybe this'll go off without a hitch--By the time you spotted the rusted length of metal pipe in her hand, gripped by fingers wrapped in blood-encrusted gauze - it was already being swung towards your face in a brutal arc towards your face. Even with the helmet on, you could tell that this was going to hurt.And it did. In fact, she had enough force in the blow - a blow she shouldn't have had enough room to gather that much momentum - to send you hurtling backward, the bell-toll of the pipe's impact against the helmet still ringing in your ears. Even with the armor weighing you down, she managed to make you fly. You only had a moment to curse your fucking horrible luck before a rotting wooden bedframe broke your fall, crumbling into soggy, worm-tunneled flinders underneath you.Only as Sabrina started to stalk towards you, her back hunched as she gripped her rusty pipe in both hands - did you idly realize that her sudden attack had made you lose grip of the collar as well. It would be somewhere in the room, on the ground, in the dark.Fuck."LIAR! YOU...YOU MADE THEM TURN IT OFF, DIDN'T YOU?!" Sabrina shrieked, the unclean edge of insanity making her accusation shrill, scraping painfully against your ears. With surprising agility - almost bestial, feral in how she flung herself on top of you, she brought her pipe down right into your already-dented helmet in another crushing blow. "TELL THEM! TELL THEM TO FUCKING TURN IT BACK ON! TELL THEM IT'S NOT MY FAULT! IT WAS NEVER MY FAULT!"[2/3]
>>26429696You reach up with a gauntleted hand to ward off her blows, to protect yourself while still being in a stunned daze - only to find out that your entire left arm, up to the elbow, had been reduced to a melted, fused stump. Cancerous, rotting bone jutting out where the joint should have been....Man. That's not even fair at all."TELL THEM OR I'LL MELT YOUR OTHER ARM OFF, YOU FUCKING METAL DEMON THING!" Sabrina shrieks again, this time trying to jab the end of her pipe into one of the eye holes of your helmet. ...She's not succeeding, but it'll be a few moments she'll be punching it right through your brain.How do you react?
>>26429702Roll. Throw her off.Pin her with our body long enough to wrestle the collar onto her.
>>26429702Get angry. Tear the helmet off and scream back at her."I'm not some fucking metal demon thing! I'm trying to help, damn you!"
>>26429720need to find the collar again first.
>>26429688>>26429696>>26429702[X]Regen your left arm like a motherfucker and sucker-punch her. Go for the collar, fast.
[x] hack off one of her arms while screaming some variation of "PUT THE FUCKING SUIT ON! shes a magic girl she can take that shit.
>>26429702[X] Regenerate arm, shove her off, scramble to find that damn glowing collar.maybe open our visor to for a bit to see it better."I'm trying to help you, you crazy bitch!"
>>26429702Do we have any options for assistance? Maybe that other warmaster that was hanging around? We're not gonna be able to do a hell of a lot with only one arm.
>>26429702[x]We may not have our speed, but we still have our strength. We still have a good arm to punch her in the gut. Knock crazy off of us, and make a run for the collar. It's probably still glowing, so we ought to be able to see it at least.
>>26429702[x] "THEY CAN'T TURN IT BACK ON BECAUSE YOU BROKE IT! PUT THE FUCKING COLLAR ON!"
>>26429734>>26429738What's the point of regenerating the arm when the armor is obviously gone on that hand?
[X] Slug her unconscious and put the damn collar on her.No more Ms. Nice Sallaka.
>>26429702Fling her off, regen asap and tell malal to turn the field back on for a bit. "If you attack me again i'll have then turn it off again. now i need to get this collar put on you to help you, do you understand?"
>>26429702I will get them to turn it back on but you have to put the collar on first!Kick her so we can try and get some distance between us and possibly regenerate
>>26429702ANGRY PICOLO ARM REGEN PUNCH HER OFF OF YOU!!!!
>>26429756She'll be expecting a punch using our remaining hand, not from the very hand she just melted off.Of course, looking badass and having another hand to block that thrice-be-damned pipe helps as well.
>>26429756Having two hands can be useful for things and stuff.
>>26429702[x]Sucker-punch, roll her off, start looking for the collar.
>>26429756you want us to keep this handicap?we need that arm functional, even if it's just for one blow.
[x] NOW NOWDO THE PICCOLO THINGJUST DO THE PICCOLO THINGWhatever you do, just... please.
>>26429702[x] Get regen started on the arm, get Malal to turn the anti-magical field back on for a bit to calm her the fuck down, then starts the threatening."Put the damn thing on and the field stays up. If you don't, every time you so much as think about sleeping, we'll drop it again.""Last chance Saberina. Demon or not, I'm trying to help."
>>26429702Try and get her off and give her head the heaviest whack we can manage. The go hunting for the collar.make sure we're focusing our regen on our existing arm as well as the one she's just removed, as she's no doubt going to try and reduce that one to mush as well as soon as we start fighting back.
Sabrine better be fucking grateful for all Seyiku is going through for her. Like a fruitbasket every Christmas levels of grateful.
>>26429702oh boy. No one said that it would this easy. >[x]Regenerate arm and punch her off.I doubt the arm is going to last but it will surprise her. We need to get some grief seeds for this.
>>26429702regenerate our arm, and try to punch her off. Pull a sword with our right, see if we can incapacitate her with it before she slags it
>>26429702Regenerate arm, shove her off, hunt for the hopefully still glowing collar."This room isn't going to last any longer. If it breaks the voices will never stop! If you don't want that then put this thing on!"
>>26429702[x]Take of helm with one hand. [x] Be adamant about her wearing the collar[x]"Look, I am a Magical Girl just like you and I am here to help, for fucks sake! They can`t turn the Anti-Magic Field because it was failing, it wouldn`t work any longer and neither would you. I can help you with the voices but you need to trust me. You need to put the collar on. Just think about it for a minute, you have nothing to loose. You have been down here for a year and Mary Sue and other people have been working the whole time to help you. Me being here, is your last chance to survive this, Sabrina. I know it wasn`t your fault. It was no ones fault, but if you want to be saved, you need to put takethe first step!"I say instead of getting physical we try the diplomatic route, she melting our arm of including the armor pretty much shows that she will melt us before we can do anything.
Hey gang.Stop trying to reason with the crazy person.
>>26429897Say, are you retarded? Did you see that she melted our arm off before we even noticed? Are you really that demented that you think getting physical with her will help us of her ability is that fast and potent? Struggling will only make her freak out more. Right now she thinks she has the upper hand so we can talk to her.
>>26429950You realize she'S SECONDS away from reaching our head?
>>26429950Not really. Sabrina's already jumped off the edge. I'd say reasoning with her is a lost cause, that and I don't think Sallaka would appreciate a pipe punching through her skull.
>>26429971You realize that she doesnt need to touch us to melt some part of us off and could have melted us into a pulp already?
>>26429950Just a hunch I'm having., but I don't think trying to talk will help much either, you know...
>>26429897>>26429950I love /tg/ sometimes."The crazy chick just melted your arm and now you have cancer growths all over it. She is now reaching for your head wut do?""We talk to her and spout shitty speeches"Every time.
Our options are Diplomancer the insane, or overpower someone that melted our arm off without us noticing.Which one sounds like the better plan?No, seriously. Which one is the better plan? I have no fucking clue.
>>26430001So what? she melted one of our arms, all right, but we still have 4 other limbs to deliver hurt.
>>26430001Both are really bad but i say we play to Sayaka's strengths and subdue her with force
>>26430001Regenerate, shout, punch, regenerate, shout, punch.That's why Sayaka was picked for the mission, after all.
>>26430024Let's go with this.
>>26429950She is going to stab us in the brain. We need to do something about that, at least.
>>26430001>>26430023>>26430024Yep. At this point, no more Nice Blueberry.
>them dead-eyes on Wendy from twitterhorrifying
I'm usually all for heroic speeches and pep talks, but sometimes you need to kick the shit out of somebody. We knock her out and slap the collar on, job done.
>>26430108Sorry, it's probably the flat colors. I don't really do shading well, you see.
>>26429950Not really retarded. The crazy person who already hears voices and is hyperdestructive to the point where we can't even notice she's destroying out body isn't going to be listening to our voice. she's hearing plenty already. What's one more voice of reason in a sea of madness, really?
We have to find that collar fast. Maybe taking off the helmet to help us see the glow?
Sweet unbelievable fuck. It's 10am and the thread's still up? Awesome.I'd like to take this time to point out to everyone theorizing and speculating and so on about the Eighth Officio that ALL KINDS of shit has already been explained, mentioned, described, and covered in Wendy Cooldown's writeups.You know, those things that used to come after the end of an MGNQ thread that you breezed right past and probably dismissed as pointless faggotry?http://pastebin.com/u/WendyCooldownIt's all in there, guys. Go fucking read them already. They aren't crappy, and from what I can see, they're definitely canon. ...And if that little mention of the Seventeenth's Warmaster last thread was any indication, then Prose Magica (the story by archivalfag) is canon, too. I don't know if the Toronto Officio is going to figure prominently at all at some point, but if nothing else, it's been acknowledged in the main story, now.http://pastebin.com/u/GrizzlyniisanSo go read that, too.
time to fight crazy with crazy!
>>26430144When I go to Uni, it's 1-fucking-AM as it is here.
>>26430144>>26430148it's 10 am where i normally live and 1 am where i am now. what a coincidence.
>>26430108>>26430130Didn't she die at some point anyway? I thought it was intentional.
>>26430177Yeah according to her she had her gem exploded and the blessed lady shoved her into a new oneI thought the same thing
>>26430144>>26430157>>264301743 AM here. 3 AM Monday, that is.WOOO TIMETRAVEL.
>>26430177>>26430219I'll be honest and say that I don't remember every detail of every write-up. The request was to make her look "tired" so if she looks "dead" instead, that isn't really what I was aiming for. Unless it's "dead-tired" in which case I can accept that as a compromise, hahaha
>>26429734 >>26429738 >>26429775 >>26429785You reach up with your other hand - the entire gauntlet there already glowing magma-red, rust flaking off with every movement - and you take a hold of the pipe the crazed Magical Girl on top of you is trying to fit through the eyehole of your helmet's visor. Stopping it in mid-stab, making its wielder scream and shriek and shake in frustration. "TELL THEEEEMMMM! TELL THEM TO TURN IT BACK OR I SWEAR I'LL FUCKING EAT YOUR FACE--"...Hahaha, really? REALLY? Yeah, no. You've had enough. Actually, you had enough the moment you realized that she was too far gone to reason with. It shouldn't have taken your left arm being melted to slag for you to catch up with the situation. Way back then...you'd have gone for the most obvious option. The quickest and easiest.Putting everything you've got into your grip, you grit your teeth as you clench your fist around the pipe. The moment you feel the metal give the slightest bit is when you all but tear the bludgeon from Sabrina's own white-knuckled grip. You fling the makeshift weapon away, before reaching up again and grabbing a fistful of the crazed girl's gown and hauling her face towards your metal helmed forehead....The second nose you've broken in one day. If only Kyoko was around to see it.Sabrina tilts back on her mount, dazed by the blow, blood pouring out of her nose and mouth, to drip down her chin - the fresh crimson already clotting, already decomposing even before it's dried on her gown. On her skin. You prop yourself up with your remaining hand - and throwing fair play to the wind, acknowledging that this was somewhere you had to play dirty, it's here that you punch her in the face. As hard as you possibly can.With your freshly-regenerated hand, grown back with pure and utter rage, at the cost of searing pain comparable to that of dipping a limb into slow-burning lava. Plainly said, it hurt like a fucking bitch.[1/2]
>>26430270Hatguy I expect better of you than to forget things everWorthless to me now. Worthless.
>>26430273:metal:Hopefully this will put her out for a bit, and not leave lasting grudges.
>>26430273Kyoko is so proud
>>26430273The skin on your knuckles hadn't even had time to set yet before it's already split by the force of your punch - Sabrina's eyes going wide, before going blank as she crumples to the floor. Her jaw curiously and amusingly dislocated from the rest of her skull.You kick her off you, spitting curses and oaths against the entire Western world in general, before scrambling back onto your feet. Reaching up with both hands to tear your helmet off - which, at this point, was a rusting, dented mess. It drops to the floor with a clatter as you suck in deep, rasping breaths, tasting your own blood in your mouth, already turned rancid by the corruption of whatever the hell Sabrina actually does. ...You wince as you feel some of your teeth come loose. Fucking hell, Expiry Date Chick! You'll pay for that!Spitting out a molar, you look around for the collar, squinting at the ground, hoping to catch a glimpse of its crimson glow. Luckily, you find it easily enough, and you slip your arm through it, this time, like a makeshift bangle. Should at least help you from losing it so easily like the last time.You turn back to where you left Sabrina unconscious, to finish this once and for all - only to find that she's gone.Shit. Shit shit shit."Sayaka?" Malal's voice is disjointed, but there, on your headset speaker. "Sayaka, report. We heard something happen in there. What's going on? Sayaka!""...Fuck this. I should've gone instead. Malal, I'm takin' over, I'm gonna send in--""No. Shut up and let us do this.""But Mickey's not--""Sayaka will see this through." Malal's voice, while patient, was clearly irritated. "Sayaka? Sayaka, respond, please. What's going on? Did you get the collar onto her?"How do you react?
>>26430315"Working on it. She's a feisty one."
>>26430315[x] "Contact with the outside world is really ruining the horror-movie feel,to be honest. So far so bad, but nothing to awful yet, though pacifying the target is harder than expected. Hold the reinforcements for now."
>>26430315[x] "She is batshit insane and melted my arm. So no. Also, I've lost her.I did punch her real good in the face, though."
>>26430315back into a corner or wall. cant let her flank us. block any attack and clamp the dam collar on her.
>>26430350[X] This one. With adding that it was very satisfying to punch her in the face. While >>26430361 also.
>>26430315[x] "No, she went fucking ballistic. I don't know where she is. Is there anywhere she hides in here? I hurt her pretty bad, she thinks I'm a monster, she might be done fighting."
>>26430315>[X] "Working on it. She's a feisty one.">[X] Stay on your toes, find Expiry Date Chick.
>>26430315"Nobody else comes in. If I'm not out in an hour, just glass the place, she's too far gone."
>>26430315Tried but she resistedMaking another attempt.Tell amber the armour didn't do much good
>>26430315"Lost sight of target. This is proving harder than anticipated."Then we put our dukes and pray that she doesn't come at us from behind. Worst comes to worst, send reinforcements. Top choices would be one or both of the two warmasters sitting around doing fuck-all.
>>26430315[X] pick up the headset on the move, find that bitch."this shit hurts like fuck, she's insane and she disappeared. Did i mention this hurts?"keep a wall on our back and go look for the ungrateful cunt.
Coloured Sayaka bitcheeezzzzSince she hasn't got much black, it kinda feels empty.Dunno wat do with the eyes though. Left them as they were.
>>26430315I was hoping we'd see sayaka's headbutt combo again.[x] "armor is mostly gone, lost visual, in decent shape, she's no eversor though, sit tight marry sue" Then put those honed senses to use, we aren't kirlika's prodigy for nothing.
>>26430437Nice. Very nice!
>>26430315[X] Carefully look around before saying. "I'm fine currently got in a brawl with her and lost the collar for a moment. Now she has done taken off."
>>26430437im kinda sad she doesnt have the double forte golden hair clip
>>26430315[X] She's gone ballistic, now she's just gone. Wasn't this supposed to be simple?
>>26430482TBH I never really saw the need to give her a special meguca hairclip.
>>26430437Awesome. Anyway, I'm out.
>>26430472She looks pretty heroic in this. Maybe it's Sayaka's ominous witch armor or something.
>>26430507Her whole thing is music, m8. The fortissimo clip ties that to her outfit.
>>26430507it's a Dan Kim thing.
>>26430522Sayaka-chan is a true heroine.
>>26430548Actually, the fortissimo clips are from the movie version of her costume, I think.
>>26430557Why so shiro-like in appearance sayaka?
>>26430315[x]Yell/Complain: "Why do I always have to deal with the crazy ones!? All I wanted to be is a Hero of Justice! She`s hiding somewhere in the darkness, keep the door locked!"[x]Keep looking for Mrs. Instrumentality.
Sorry everyone, but I'll have to end this thread a bit early. Not really feeling all that well due to the week before, but we'll finish this arc in tomorrow's thread, at least! And it'll start earlier than usual and I mean it this time!Thank you for your participation, and feedback is appreaciated! I do believe there is a short writeup incoming!
>>26430757Thank you for this, Deculture.
>>26430757Do rest well! A dead QuestMaster will do us no good...
A lone girl walked the streets of Mitakihara, ruby-red eyes scanning the streets around her as the cool spring air brushed across her face. She hunkered down in her jacket, wondering for a moment if it was worth trying to wrestle her long, green hair into the hood. …Probably not. It wasn’t THAT cold. No colder than it had been the last few months, anyway, the gently-falling snow a cruel underscore for the wild changes in her life lately. Not something she wanted to think about, at the moment. Not when she’d finally gotten a little peace from a certain senselessly cheery redhead and the sycophants surrounding her…boss. Someone she would have liked to call her friend, even with the circumstances as they were. …Despite all her worries, this city made her feel warm. An old, nostalgic glow filled her soul gem, along with the gentle gnawing of an old, obnoxious friend. She was trying to quit. Really, she was. And for a while, in spite of everything, she was winning. But the siren call of the cigarette machines made the old, forged Taspo card in her pocket burn. One of the passerby gave her a look as she stepped up to it – she was a little young, wasn’t she? …No, it was his imagination. A trick of the light. The woman he’d thought was a teenager just then was most assuredly an adult. Not a nice, productive office lady or some college student, though. Just a curvy young woman with tired, sunken eyes and a bustline that was working hard at demolishing an old yellow t-shirt. An escort, most probably. He was entirely sure he’d seen her walking here from the red light district… ---(1/2)
>>26430757Thanks for the Thread! Don't push yourself too much, we'll understand if you need to rest a bit.
>>26430757Praise be to Decu!
>>26430778An old, smoky bar. An ageless black man. A bottle of expensive whiskey. That was what she’d resorted to that night, in the end. A thousand and one memories rushed back to the green-haired girl. Maybe this wasn’t where she needed to be – no, she knew this wasn’t where she needed to be, thanks to years of experience in her field and the Chirpee app on her phone. Murderface – Matsuda Chiaki, this time around – wasn’t going to be out. She was babysitting now. Warmaster, now. Part of the Idol Voices Around the World event, or whatever it was. She might have even been safe in bed right then, with Kirishima Ruri’s head between her legs. …No. That didn’t sound like her. But it made the girl’s blood boil just thinking about it, and the only way she could think of to cool it down was another shot, under the watchful but indifferent eyes of Charles. Not that it mattered. She couldn’t afford to get falling-down drunk. She never could, anymore. She was a Callidus. A professional. Not even when she was here, back in this bar, in this city, thinking about that person, could she just drink like a normal fucking person anymore. The red-eyed girl reminded herself after another couple of shots that she didn’t have much time to waste here. It wasn’t a vacation, much as she wanted it to be. The air had changed in Mitakihara. It had gotten heavier, or maybe it was a sort of underlying scent; a sugar-and-corpses smell that lingered in her nose now, no matter where in the city she was. Or maybe… Maybe it was just that, as she knew better than anyone, things here were going to get much, much worse.
>>26430581In powers and in ideals.Not to mention in the untimely end of archer
>>26430787How negative. Gotta chin up!
>>26430757thanks for running, don't burn yourself out now ya hear?http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread is archives, write up and all.goodnight gents.>>26430778>>26430787she's right, that doesn't sound like Chiaki at all!
>>26430778>>26430787Is this noir Midori?Because either it's noir Midori or Chiaki is a seriously bad influence.
>>26430787Magical Noirdori Quest
>>26430872Seems to be, unless she has an older, more cynical sister who is also a Magical Girl and also has feelings for Chiaki.
>>26430757thanks for running
>>26430872>>26430888Definitely looks like future-noir-Midori AU stuff. Since unless Pinky is fine with leaving us fooling around with Ruri and singing shit, it's not even slightly possible.
>>26430902Could be since she looks like a Sonozaki
>>26430914That's what I thought, but there's this:>She was babysitting now. Warmaster, now. Part of the Idol Voices Around the World event, or whatever it wasBoth referencing the current job and implying we're new to the Warmaster thing.
>>26430482there you go XD
>>26430778>>26430787Must be some sort of NOIR Midori Imposter. Since our Midori tries to stop Chiaki from drinking and smoking it cant be the same.
>>26430943Hmm, that's true, I just glanced over it and didn't recognize whatever Voices Around the World is supposed to be (could be the stupid filming I guess). Well, we'll see.
>>26430971Green hair, big boobs, yellow shirt. Sounds like Mion. but Midori only mentioned having brothers, no sister.
>>26430971Well, NECO did claim that Midori must be a really good actor and that she has everyone fooled..
>>26431008It'd be strange if Chiaki used to know someone else from Midori's family. Of course, it's easily possible for whoever this is to not have said anything to Midori about it, for a variety of reasons, but it would still be a huge coincidence.
>>26431031The text really, really heavily implies it's not Midori. The way Chiaki's described makes it clear that it's someone she's not met since she was Murderface, after all (and knows about her amnesia to boot).
>>26431008Oh god, crazy crossdressing brother obsessed with his sister.
>>26431062>It'd be strange if Chiaki used to know someone else from Midori's family.We used to frequent their ramen joint with Kharn.
>>26431086But what about the huge tits?
>>26431109Melons.Literal melons inside a bra.
>>26431086Code Veronica much?
>>26431095'Used to frequent' seems a bit strong, did we really go more than once? You'd think we'd be less...mythical to Midori if we were even rare regulars, since she worked there a ton. Plus, if we'd met anyone from her family there, would she REALLY not have mentioned anything about it? I've been assuming that if it's her relative, she hasn't said anything because she didn't know, which goes out the window if we got to know them right in front of her.
lets seePerhaps the midori we know actually used her wish to try to save the 'real' midori's life and what actually happened was that our midori ended up resembling the dead 'real' midori instead.
>>26431313Doesn't explain why this new Noirdori knows about our job.
>>26431313Kazumi Magica spoilers: This is literally what one of the magical girls wished for. In fact there were two cases like that.
>>26431355Everyone probably knows about our job, wasn't it partly webcasted already?
Oh, sweet, I'm in time for Magical Girl Noir Quest! And it seems to be getting pretty good too-->>26430757>pic related
>>26431385Blame deculture living on the moon and adhering to moon schedule.
>>26431378The current Idol job, sure. But I meant both that and the Warmaster bit.Frankly, I think it's just Midori, but super depressed about taking what seems to be a leisure job without her. Letting her imagination get the best of her.
>>26431440Midori does look like she gets into some dark moods when she's jealous.
>>26431440Can't be Midori. Charle's Bar is right in front of her house. She drops by the bar and doesn't visit her parents to make sure they're alright? That isn't her.
>>26431440>>26431451Except that it doesnt make much sense. If she wathcing the Webcast like we think she did anyway its pretty obvious that we`re not very fond of Midori. If this Shotstory is supposed to show how Midori REALLY is like then this would be a HUGE retcon if you remember that we were in head in the Syberia-Arc and while it was apparent that she has a fairly low self-esteem there was nothing that ever hinted she is like that. tl;dr: If this is canon its a huge asspull.
>>26431709It can be canon without being an asspull if it isn't Midori.
>>26431709>that we`re not very fond of Midori. I meant Ruri.
>>26431580Kyubey is protecting them, remember? Chances are he relocated them first thing.>>26431709Maybe. But emotions have a way of changing your outlook, and at the time she was in full-on "Save Murderface-Senpai" mode. Now she's starting to wallow in jealousy and depression, assuming this is her.Not a big deal, though. We're going to find out eventually. No need to fight over it now.
>>26431776Guys, it's obviously not Midori based on (in addition to the fact that this person is completely different from when we controlled her):>Murderface – Matsuda Chiaki, this time around - wasn't going to be out.Even if Midori actually was like this somehow, only people we knew before the first thread who actually used the 'Murderface' moniker would think that way. Midori has no reason to think of Chiaki as Murderface at all, and she 100% definitely wouldn't give any particular weight to our changing names (unless we secretly knew Midori before everything and she's a master of deception, which would also be a huge ret-con).
>>26431860didn't mean to link, by the wayalso despite everything, the idea of Midori being so good a callidus that she hid her previous knowledge of Chiaki not only from everyone in-story, but even people literally reading her thoughts and moods, is amusing.
>>26431860Midori did call Chiaki Murderface at first. Everyone knew Chiaki as Murderface because Murderface is the most infamous magical girl worldwide. Midori only started calling Chiaki "Matsuda-sempai" when she was driving us to Garcia's mansion and we told her to stop calling us Murderface.
>>26431860>>26431872She certainly knew ABOUT us before, both by reputation and by the fact that we'd gone to her family's ramen shop more than once with Kharn in the past.
GREEN HAIR IS THE DANGER
>>26431891>>26431902Oh definitely, but A: there's no reason (or sign) that she thinks of her as Murderface over Chiaki, B: using Chiaki's last name makes it seem like the person doesn't know her by that name at all, and C: she has no real reason to tie the name-change with our amnesia (she could probably reason out the connection, true, but there's no reason for that to have any meaning to her beyond that since she used the name Chiaki both before and after the only time she - presumably - observed said memory-loss).
>>26431943I'm actually starting to think it's Midori from our home timeline.

>>26431957Simpler t think that it isn't Midori but another Callidus who looks like her
>>26431957Entirely possible. We still don't have any idea how Homura and Pinky got to this timeline, so there's still room for others.
>>26432217Chiaki probably timeline-hopped, assuming she's the REAL Homura and not somehow a clone. Pinky is an omnipresent god-witch who exists in ALL timelines, assuming she's the witch form of the real Madokami.
>>26432257But it doesn't seem like a normal timehop, as there's already a Homura in this world, and Decu confirmed it. And there was also already a Pinky here.
>>26430778 >She hunkered down in her jacket, wondering for a moment if it was worth trying to wrestle her long, green hair into the hood.>Just a curvy young woman with tired, sunken eyes and a bustline that was working hard at demolishing an old yellow t-shirt.Writer mistake, or intentional discrepancy?I guess she could be wearing the t-shirt under an unbuttoned/unzipped jacket, but you'd think that'd have been mentioned.Or just part of the J̶e̶d̶i̶ Callidus mind trick she used then.
>>26432335Madokami saved Magical Girls wo witched out long before Madoka would have existed. If Faust is just the witch form of Madokami, why wouldn't she be able to make time her bitch in much the same way?And she did already say in this flashback that she's not very good with linear time.As for Chiaki, maybe this is what happens when she tries to jump timelines with a broken shield?
