You are a Magical Girl, and you're about to give your boss a debriefing about the last mission you just wrapped up moments earlier. It's strange, actually. Yes, you had the option of going back to your apartment and getting some actual sleep, sleep without worrying if you'd suddenly find a giggling, green-haired idol trying to get fresh under your blanket. You also had the option to go directly to Charles', to unwind the only way you knew how (and also your favorite way). But you chose to go ahead and get your debriefing done and over with instead. Much better to do it now rather than wait till later.Sayaka would've been surprised if she found out. Mami would've been impressed. Kyoko would've grinned, nudged you in the ribs and teased you about worrying about timetables and shit like that. Turning into a watch-wearing dildo....It's not really that, is it? You just want to get this shit over with, after all. The less you have to do with the last 48 hours, the better. Besides, after this, you'd have enough time to talk to Mami about what she learned from the rogue Magical Girls you rounded up last night. And then there's the upcoming mission to prepare for, you still need to get the intel about the off-shore facility you're going to be sent to steal something from. Not to forget about your dinner date with Midori too, and--...FUCK. You ARE turning into a watch-wearing dildo.Jesus Christ, things were really much more simpler before you got this goddamn hat to wear.
>>27985185In any case, you're currently at Headquarters, in the waiting area outside Kyuubey's office. The receptionist's desk is currently empty - it seems like Mami hasn't clocked in yet, or probably already out on business, you're not sure. In her place, however, was a monitor screen turned to face visitors, and it had come alive the moment you came in, displaying Kyuubey's usual impassive face. He greeted you easily enough, after getting over his surprise of you reporting in so early. He asked you to wait, as he seemed to have company over. ...Tense company, from the way he sounded, but company nonetheless.The monitor blanked out after he told you that he'd send for you once his affairs with the visitor is settled. It's been an hour since then, and you've spent that hour checking your Shield. Checking to see if it was clicking incessantly, a sign of the eldritchian nightmare inside being a bit prissy, or if you could use the only ability that'd been your one trump card before you suddenly got saddled with weapons forged from pure insanity and hate.Nothing. Not even the quiet ticking of the mysterious, gear-infested mechanism within that was a soothing comfort whenever the world did its level best to kill you. Your Shield was silent, cold and dead. It could turn, sure, allowing you access to the mysterious second inventory that you got Tiny Pete from, and where you stashed an entire wing of jets into - but any further than that and the mechanism inside locked fast and locked hard. It took you a lot of grunting and pushing to get it back to its prior position.[1/2]
It's like we were either really good at collating data through multiple timelines or were significantly practiced at carrying out investigative/bureaucratic work something!
>>27985193You were about to try again - contemplating smashing the shield itself into the wall nearby, just to dislodge whatever it was that was sticking inside the gears that blocked you from accessing your ability - when the monitor came alive once more, showing the face of your incubator. And yes, you're well aware that facial expressions aren't something mutant cats are any good at, but this time, he looked...well, frustrated. Resigned, maybe. Just a bit of angry, too."Come in, Matsuda." Kyuubey had said, in a tired sigh. "But before you do, please remember that I do not tolerate gunfire in my office."The monitor switched off before you could ask what was that about. Gunfire? Was he worried that you were going to shoot him again? You've curbed that habit a long time ago, but he's just probably trying to play it safe, you guess. You step through the double doors, and blink as you realize that Kyuubey's visitor is, in fact, another Incubator. One with the same smug expression as him, the same round crimson eyes - but where Kyuubey was all white, this was nearly jet black all over, with only the fur covering its head and face the same hue as pure snow. The teardrop insignia tattooed on Kyuubey's back instead imprinted on its forehead, between its eyes."Brother, let me introduce you to my Warmaster, Chiaki Matsuda." You hear Kyuubey say, with no small amount of pride. "Matsuda, allow me to introduce you to my brother, the Tenth.". . .The Tenth? Here?How do you react?
>>27985185holy shit this started late.
>>27985209[x] Do you all look so smug?
>>27985209probably we should restrain the hell out of ourselveswe shouldn't give the jackass a way of getting an upperhand in anything.so silent nod and we will use professional calm.we can get pissed off and go shoot the crap out of something afterwards, such as burn a jyuuby effigy afterwards.
>>27985209[x]"I'm assuming that punching's out, too. Unless it's a war declaration between officios? Is something going down?"[x]Look around for other magical girls escorting this dickbutt
>>27985209"Dickbutt.Answer is still no by the way. Midori's mine."
>>27985209>>27985220In the grim darkness of MGNQ The only answer is Dickbutt.Also, Kyubey didn't say anthing about not stabbing.
>>27985209[x] [scream externally]
>>27985209[X] Politely and somberly greet the dickbutt
>>27985209[X]Retrieve from shieldland he fuckhugest blunt and or spikey implement of hitting we can manage. "Why shouldn't I introduce your brother to this not-gunfire?"
>>27985209[x] So you're the Tenth, huh? I've wanted to meet you for a long time. To what do we owe this pleasure?Pour in as much contempt as magically possible.
>>27985209[x] "Hey dickbutt. Hows the whole mind-control and grief-overload your own agents thing going for you?"
>>27985209[x] "Given your asshattery I'd expected you to look...smugger."
>>27985209[x] Murderous rage intensifies.
>>27985239"You're not getting Midori back, Dickbutt".
[x] think about why the 10th is over here[x] try not to think about dickbutt mutant cats in incest heat
>>27985272Something like >the bat ?
>>27985209[x] Stab him.
>>27985209>[x]Take out a cigarette and start smoking.
>we're not allowed to shoot him>everyone else in the thread has decided either insults or blunt instruments work.lol
>>27985209>"She is still mine, and you still cannot have her back. Dickbutt."
>>27985209Sorry, you can't have my bed warmer backDo you want a pat instead?
>>27985321Chiaki is tired and just finished the most excruciatingly discipline-requiring mission ever, it's too much to expect her to not go for the instinctual mutilation.
>>27985220[x]"Dickbutt."After that, COMPLETELY PROFESSIONAL. Like it never happened.
>>27985325>>27985324>>27985289>>27985259It should be noted that we're saying this as much for Kyubey's benefit as Jyuubey.
>>27985337You mean YOU'RE saying it.We have no reason to mention it unless he does so first.
>>27985209[x] "...it's ok as long as it isn't gunfire, right ? I hear that golf is a popular sport among upper management." *clubbing intensifies*
>>"Dickbutt.>>Answer is still no by the way. Midori's mine."This
Huh. Didn't expect a visit from Jyuubey.
>>27985209He said no Gunfire, right? [x]Smash Monitor with golfclub summoned from Inventory.
>>27985209[x] I think the best way to do this would be to pull out a cigarette and puff the whole thing in one go to steady ourself, and then in as much of a forced deadpan as we can "I have no idea why you felt the need to remind me of your no in-office gunfire policy, coobs. I have absolutely no reason to hate your brother. It's a pleasure to meet you in person, joobopidoobie."See how much it throws the asshole spacecats off balance. They're all kinda autistic, it should fuck with em hardstyle.
Chiaki: Almost as subtle as fine wine.>>27985360Please don't post voting over banners unless I'm signyaficantly late, thank you~
>>27985209"Did you really expect a simple witch to kill me?"
>>27985356>>27985365Ouh, these two!
>>27985370Noted. Sorry 'bout that.
I'm still really amused by how possessive of Midori everyone is.
Its too bad our shield isn't working, since we may very well have a way to get rid of Dickbutt (Or any other Incubator) for good.Grab them, time stop, feed them to Faust.
>>27985385No harm done!
Can incubators feel pain?I mean, yeah, kinda useless to 'kill' them since they just come back, but it might be worthwhile to stab them with acid daggers or something.
>>27985387We stole her fair and square. If he wants her back he can at least put some effort into it.Asking nicely is not effort.
>>27985387After the Siberia Arc, you'd think it'd be expected. She did throw herself head-first into Chiaki's barrier.>>27985399Yeah. Just wanted to post it.
>>27985387/tg/ gets clingy over waifus.
>>27985387You don't just hand over best girl, hatchan.You should know this.
>>27985405Why was "stab him" put as a threat instead of violence? I certainly meant it to be violent.
>>27985387Putting aside the matter of waifu warfare, we owe Midori bigger than just about anybody that we can remember. She deserves a good measure of loyalty.

>>27985405>>27985424>>27985439Decu is perfectly capable of counting votes himself.

I wish the bangles weren't damaged. It would be so satisfying to power them up and them crush Jyuubey like a fuzzy wuzzy grape.
>>27985426Shes great but still not best.
>>27985387Jyuubey is a serious, grade A dickbutt. Whatever he wants Midori for isn't going to be good for anybody.
>>27985436At least Mami isn't here to be disappointed in us again.
>>27985457"Mami-chan, Mami-chan! A bad incubator was in the office and I DIDN'T SHOOT HIM OR EVEN GREVIOUSLY INJURE HIM! ...I did call him names a bit, but they were long names so it-it's ok, right? Right-Mami-onee-chan?"
>Havent followed MGNQ for some months>Finally catch up again>Dickbutt is still a thing after I posted it in the first threadGoddamnit, /tg/.
>>27985469I giggled like a school girl.
>>27985470The HUE never goes away.
>>27985443Because then /tg/ would entertain ideas of Homucest.Not that it's bad but flirting with a psychotic, mentally broken version of ourselves is asking for trouble.>>27985457>>27985469I admit, that was adorable.
>>27985470Jyuubey will always be the dickbutt.At least we no longer call the boss that.
>>27985484>Not that it's bad but flirting with a psychotic, mentally broken version of ourselves is asking for trouble.>MGNQ>being this much of a pussyBitch, we fed Murder Madoka pancakes.
>>27985519>pancakes.MAMI'spancakes are enough to pacify just about anyone.
>>27985519We also got Midori killed and cost us a potential friend in Mirai.Toeing fine lines isn't something I'd recommend on a regular basis.
>>27985519And being an idiot like Kharn ended up with getting Midori killed, losing Mirai, and shortening whatever time Malal had so that we lost more answers from her as well as additional aid. You want to be Kharn? Is that it?
I'm guessing that Jyuubey is going tell us something bullshit like "Mai Meguca have rebelled! Because I don't have any power to turn them into witches or mind control them into stopping I need you to go in and kill them all. Oh and only you can do this."And the only reason why QB is giving him any attention because Dickbutt is going "You do stuff for me or I will tell everyone what you are keeping in that base in Siberia. You know that they will go Excommunicate Traitoris on your ass if they find out."Well, that's probably going to happen anyway
>>27985541>>27985569>waaahh waaahhhhhhhhh don't breathe wrong or everyone will die>OH YEAH BY THE WAY DIIICCKKKBUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTDon't gab at me when it's obvious how you really want to act you little band of skubs.
>>27985569Judging by how everyone loves the hat and loves to pick the most violent and lewd options, apparently people want us to be Kharn.
>>27985575Big difference between a little bit of friendly dickbutt and trying to sex up the crazy, superpowered alternate universe version of your self.
>>27985575I didn't even vote. >>27985583I'd rather not touch Pinky without a 10-foot stick, but that's just me.
>>27985387Some of us more than the others.
>>27985443>HomuciferIf this ever happens in our adventure, will Pinky go pic related?
>>27985583Maybe, but it is proper homusexual behavior
>>27985519>>27985569>>27985575>>27985576>>27985583>>27985541All of you, shut the fuck up.This inane bullshit is both inane, and bullshit.I think I speak for everyone else here when I say this shitflinging makes everyone enjoy the quest just that much less. Seriously, its like you're a bunch of fucking children. Cut it out.
>>27985629I could have sworn there was a chen edit of this.Oh well.
>>27985575So you want a second round of "Get Fucked".Or are you trying to bring an Incubator into Timestop again?
>>27985641fotunately deculture already shut that down. Our shield is a whole new brand of super-fucked.
>>27985632>I think I speak for everyone else hereThat's just what you think. >>27985658I suppose the important question about that is, will Timestop be available for us when we go to the oil rig.
>>27985658It's not like we rely on it these days. The only thing we use it for is Hammerspace Storage.Time Stop wasn't really that reliable past the first few threads anyway.
>>27985632Hahah, chill, anon.Isn't this just usual in questing? Moreover, I usually find this entertaining, and one of the reasons I don't just read Decu posts.
>>27985641You're wasting your breath. The next time we fuck up will be something new and unprecedented. Like refusing to play Pinky's "gotta collect them all" game to her face which will result in everyone we know brutally dying.
>>27985674As long as hammerspace works and we have gold weaponry on our side (DEagle will do if Yuu still needs to rest), we shouldn't need timestop get through the mission.Heck, we didn't need it now other than for spooking Noriko and saving one of subordinates.
>>27985698We could've used it during the fight, tho.
>>27985690I'm still waiting to use that "Really stupid idea" image I found.
>>27985708We could. If we decided to feed the Vindicare girl to Pinky.
>>27985698But timestop is for spooking people and lewds!
>>27985723You mean, every time we go into timestop, there's a chance of being nonconsensually lewded by Pinky?
>>27985734>a chance of being nonconsensually lewded by Pinky?>lewded by Pinky>nonconsensuallyImpossible!
>>27985734She's currently angry at Chiaki and is making her sleep on the couch.

>>27985220 >>27985259 >>27985263 >>27985271...Well. Now you know why the mutant cat reminded you. If he hadn't, you'd probably have immediately drawn whatever firearm you could get your hands on and shot the little bastard to pieces as soon as you set your eyes on him. Yes, your memory may still be a little spotty with what happened back then at Siberia, but you remember enough to know that most of it came down to the fucker being butthurt about you keeping Midori for your own.Midori's yours, you remember telling him, in no uncertain terms. Midori's yours, and you're not giving her up. If he thinks he's still got claim over her, then he can go fuck himself.What name did you call him again? You remember calling him something, again and again on that computer screen, the Incubator ending up so flustered about it that you could taste his frustration in his typewritten words. Granted, it was a completely different you back then, and your memory of that time was strange in the sense that it felt like viewing a fuzzy camera recording of the events, rather than an actual experience - but some of it you could remember clearly. This wasn't one of them, but the nickname was so good, you'd feel really bad if you forgot it.Dickbutt...? Was it dickbutt? It's dickbutt, isn't it? It's here that both Kyuubey and the Tenth seem to bristle at the same time. "Now, Matsuda," Kyuubey starts, a warning tone in his voice. "I realize my brother has made certain decisions in the past that he must answer for, but there's really no call in tainting your first meeting in person with vulgar, puerile insults."Huh?...But you didn't say anything. What the hell are they talking about--oh. Huh. You must've been thinking out loud. That's...well. You weren't planning on doing that, honest.[1/2]
>>27985751Magical Girl Amber, pls go.
>>27985755"I'm sure." Kyuubey lets out a sigh, here, before turning back to the Tenth. "Younger brother, please forgive Matsuda. She's just wrapped up a rather large assignment only a few hours ago, and she's had little chance to rest as it is. I'm sure she didn't mean to call you that, she..." Your Incubator stops as he sees you raise your hand. "...Yes, Matsuda?"You lower your hand, and nod towards Jyuubey. Yes, you didn't mean to call him Dickbutt then, but you mean to do so, now."I don't think that--" Kyuubey tries again, but you cut him off. Turning back to Jyuubey and saying the word with as much venom as you possibly could deliver with your gravelly, deadpan voice.Dickbutt.Both incubators bristle again, as if on cue, and your Incubator is visibly more irritated now. "Now, Matsuda, see here--""It's fine, older brother." It's here that you realize that Jyuubey's been staring at you all this time - and that his voice, which you hear in your mind for the first time, sounds weedy and nasal, as opposed to Kyuubey's calm yet professional tones. The same sort of voice used to complaining and whining. "It's no surprise that someone who takes after the Betrayer so much has no concept of common etiquette. I do hope you'll take this as yet more proof that you have made the wrong decision - again - in choosing who to lead your Officio." Jyuubey shakes his head. "A poor replacement for Tomoe Mami. Now, if there's someone more deserving to lead the Ninth Officio, it's her."Ho. This little fucker's just baiting you now, isn't he?[2/3]
http://www.gizoogle.net/tranzizzle.php?search=https%3A%2F%2Fboards.4chan.org%2Ftg%2Fres%2F27985185&se=Go+Git+Dis+ShiznitI'm just going to leave this here.
>>27985768"Tomoe Mami recommended Matsuda, and lobbied for her election." Your mutant cat of a boss replies before you could react, here. "I've no mind to seek a replacement, or keep the position unoccupied any longer. Whatever deficiency you think Matsuda may have, rest assured she is working to address them to become the Warmaster I chose her to be." Kyuubey's tone of voice, then, had never sounded colder. "And besides, you could hardly blame her. Sending an agent of your own over to disrupt her vacation?"Jyuubey sniffs, clearly offended. "I merely wanted to retrieve my Callidus in a peaceful, amiable fashion. Even after she attacked my agent - without provocation nor justification, I may add - I tried again a second time, thinking that she might listen to reason after getting her pound of flesh." The Incubator shakes its off-hued head mournfully. "Instead, I am grossly insulted, humiliated, and deprived of yet another agent. Another one, on top of the one you helped her steal, older brother." A clicking of its tongue, and Jyuubey turns its impassive gaze at you. "Perhaps I can reciprocate by stealing one of your agents, then, older brother? Someone important to your staff, like the one-eyed scarlet one? Or maybe Mami Tomoe herself? I wonder, how would that go?"...The little bastard's looking at you, as if daring you to react.What do you do?Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.Flesh of the Fallen Angels.
As if we care about his assessment of our capabilities. He's the worst kind of incubator.
>>27985784>Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.Give him a smile. A wicked one. While laying a hand on our DEagle. I dare ya, bitch.
>>27985784Keep your trap shut.
>>27985784[x]Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.Goddammit, we are NOT Kharn 2.0. We are not going to get played this easily by Jyuubey.
>>27985784Just snigger.The thought that one of our girls would want to go and join in officio after he goes about detonating their soul gems is ridiculous.Kyuubey's a good boss.
>>27985784[x] Point out that we were, in fact, provoked and and fully justified in attacking his agent. He would know this perfectly well, as he was controlling her mind at the time.
>>27985784[x]Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.This one's easy. If you know he's trying to rile you, see how deep he digs himself.[x]See if coobs wants his report now or after he's dealt with his... brother
>>27985784[X]Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.
>>27985784>>[X] I'll come back later when you're less busy. Just go home. No need to stay here at all. Kyubey can come visit us for his debriefing like before.
>>27985784>[X]Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.
>>27985784She attacked us with bears. that is provoking
>>27985784[x] Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.Gotta do better than that.
>>27985784[x] Give him the "Is this nigga serious?" face
>>27985818This is the best idea
>>27985784[x] Remind him of the fact he made one of his subordinates blow up in your face purely out of spite.[x] Which he mindcontrolled into a berserker rage beforehand.[x] Since he clearly doesn't give a fuck about his subordinates we were suspicious of his ulterior motives due to his blantant lies.[x] So no, trying to do that would not go over well at all.[x] Also Midori came of free will. Eat that, skubmeister.
>>27985784[X] Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.[X] "Is there anything you wanted me for, Kyuubey?"
>>27985784[x]OtherTell Jyuubey to get to the point. He obviously came here to make us do something.
>>27985813What makes you think that the subject has to be willing for the Contract transfer to occur? All he needs is access to the Soul Gem.Did you even consider that?
>>27985784>[x]Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.Light two cigs at the same time, drag them in one go. "Doubt that you'd be able to."
>>27985818I like this, let Jyuubey know he isn't even worth the time. There's a time and a place for everything, except for dickbutt.
>>27985784[X] "I find it interesting that you refer to the cold-blooded torture and murder of innocents a 'peaceful, amiable fashion', Incubator. I worry that your definition of 'ruthless, unprovoked attack' involves puppies, kittens and rainbows."
Guys, I think Jyubey may be trying to trick us into admitting something about Siberia...?
>>[x] Give him the "Is this nigga serious?" face
>>27985784[x] Write-in>Even after she attacked my agent - without provocation nor justification, I may add"No Provocation is a blatant falsehood. Your agent killed two of our personnel, and even if they were non-magical personnel that is a blatant act of aggression, to be met with force. You blatantly disregard the well-being of your own employees by throwing them away at my feet, you have only yourself to blame when I keep them."
>>27985784"It's not our fault your officio's incompetent compared to the 9th Officio.. Which is probably why you're here..."And then ask why we're here
>>27985784>[x]Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.Chuckle.
>>27985784[X] "Kyuubey, I am so sorry that you must suffer sharing relation with this cowardly excuse for an incubator."
>>27985784"I can destroy your whole officio on my own. Do you think it wise to invite me to do so?"
>>27985846so he gets someone who is more likely to be a mole, betray him or would just run back for Kyuubey to do the same unless he keeps controlling her directly.How to keep hold of a autonomous asset if they don't want to stay?
>>27985872Which is why we simply don't dignify Jyuubey with an answer and ask Kyuubey if he needs anything else from Chiaki.The other anons have already said it: Jyuubey isn't worth our time.
>>27985878we're here to give debriefing on Ruri mission, silly
>>27985836Do we really want to spill our hand about how much we actually know?That can be reaffirmed with Kyubey after Dickbutt leaves
>>27985872I think he already knows >10> Do you think I'm interested in that...that thing that my older brother keeps locked up in that place?>10> Like some sort of rabid pet?>10> He's already got most of the other Incubators against him because of what he's done.>10> Allowing the Betrayer to live was the first of his mistakes.
>>27985784>>27985818[X]"Right, if you're just going to play fantasy and make believe, Incubator, then I'm afraid I have better uses for my time. Boss, we'll go over the debriefing at a later time."Then leave.
>>27985895We didn't need to give the debriefing while Dickbutt's here.There's obviously another reason, otherwise Kyubey would wait until Dickbutt left. He knows we're not on good terms
>>27985906He already knows, he wants us to ADMIT it.
>>27985784[X] keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.
Qoobie may not tolerate gunfire.But he said nothing about good old-fashioned physical violence.
>>27985784[x] Time for going home >>27985818
>>27985784Hes not worth our time.[x] Snigger and shake our head.[x] Do you want me to give my debrief now, boss?
>>27985784[x] get serious and tell him to leave midori, and the rest of the ninth for that matter, alone before we're forced to do something drastic. and violent.
>>27985784[X] Sick burn"Its not our fault that your...employees are so unhappy with your employ that they're willing to jump ship, nor that they are so incompetent that you have to resort to distorting the truth in an attempt to poach actually competent girls from another Officio in order to make up for your own lack of quality...resources."
I really think we shouldn't give this little shit the time of day.by speaking up or acting violent, he will already have won.
>>27985909Exactly, we wouldn't be in this room if Kyubey did not want us interacting with Dickbutt.This is why I think we should respond, with some form of>>27985814>>27985843>>27985875>>27985942
>>27985907>>27985818This. Just leave.
>>27985784[x]Stay calm and provoke him instead[x]"Two of your famous Saints are already dead, how many more do you have left? Ah, right, I forgot, you killed them yourself by turning them into Witches."[x]Hairflick
>>27985888>How to keep hold of a autonomous asset if they don't want to stay?Constant threat of immediate Witch out or Soul Gem destruction, having her paired with a more loyal agent with a killswitch, and assuming direct control.Besides, he's not doing it to gain an asset, he's doing it to deny us one. It's basically a threat to take Kyouko or Mami and force us to kill them because he'll direct control them into fighting us like he did with Mirai. And even if we take them down non-lethally, he'll remotely self-destruct the Soul Gem via Witch out.That doesn't require them to be willing at all.
Guys, we don't have proof to back up half of these other than our own faulty memory and knowledge from Midori's point of view. Really, let's just leave, please
God I wish we still had broken timestop powers that would allow us to stitch a big floppy cock n balls to his butt.
>>27985977Or just open a window and throw the damn thing out so we can give our report in peace.
>>27985977What about Kharn and the radio logs from Siberia?I mean, thats probably what Jyu wants, but still.
WHITE KNIGHT, ANONS! WHITE KNIGHT FOR HER!
Patience, comrades, Dickbutt shall taste our wrath in time. Right now we have other priorities to focus on.
>>27985784>[x]Keep quiet. Don't give him the satisfaction.
>>27985994Oh, and Misaka, and Tiny Pete's logs.Honestly it'd be rather simple to prove he was lying his ass off, but that might provoke an investigation...
>>27986009>Acting like you wouldn't white knight for ramenbutt
>>27986009NOOOOOOOO! He wants to steal our precious ramenbutt! No way we are going to let him!
>>27985965Firstly by the wording of the Kyuubey's first initiation of the recontracting, he was able to recontract midori to him. Kyuubey himself says he despises the witch out and direct control clauses and so our girls don't have them. His wording was vague enough that he might not have been able to alter clauses, only contractorship. Thats one reason why we actually need to check with him if the clauses are still active with Midori.If this remains true, Jyuubey may get the kidnapped magical girl without the clauses he needs to exert direct control except the direct kill switch by being paired with one of his own.Then again if he attempts to pull a stunt like this, I'd like to see the resources he'll need to expend to capture someone on Kyoko or Mami's skills alive. The killswitch owner had also better be a damn special magical girl to not die within a few strikes from them.This'll be my last reply anyways. My reply will still alway be Bring It.
>>27985875additionally"Furthermore, you expect us to replace the girls you've thrown away with girls of our own? So you can break them too? I cannot in good conscience condone any sort of personnel exchange. You are a shit incubator, Dickbutt."
Are we still in working order?
>>27986104>die in a few strikesIt just takes one to terminate them, and I bet you could get them to have a deadswitch if the magical girl minder dies.
>>27986389Just waiting on the boss
>>27986407ia ia horticulture
>>27986389We just took "voting's over, now wait for Decu to process the decision" excessively well.
Thinking of watching the OVA's/movies soon. Are they any good?No spoilers would be awesome
>>27986446The first two movies just recap the series. There's SOME new footage but not much.Didn't know there was OVAs.
>>27986446MGNQ is canon
>>27986423I thought we were going to avoid the tree jokes.
>>27986446Wait 'til there is proper rip of the 3rd movie, then watch them all in one go.
>>27986471but the great decutree grants wishes

>>27986645nyan nyan ppoo
>>27986617Thanks for doing the eBook!
Oh great decutree, pls make me beautiful for the Halloween ball.Decu pls.
Guys, I think we might have some form of tourettes. We keep shouting random irrelevant statements.
>>27986104>Kyuubey himself says he despises the witch out and direct control clauses and so our girls don't have them.Well, that's wrong. Took a while to archive-dive to find the relevant bit.>"As for Jyuubey controlling his contractees and forcing them to Witch Out...well. Potentially, all Incubators can do the former, if they make it a stipulation in the contract itself. I make sure to leave that out, however - I only require being able to monitor you girls from afar, nothing more. As for the latter..." It's here that the Incubator falls silent. "It is...taboo, for us, to do something like that. Forbidden. But it is possible, yes."Forced Witch out is a normal part of the contract, it's just considered taboo among Incubators, because it's not energy efficient.
>>27986712It's called shitposting syndrome anon. This is a terminal case.
I wish I could sacrifice the failed summoners ITT in return for Decu's posts.
>>27986723It looks like a damn cargo cult, waiting for the decuplane to soar overhead and drop off precious cargo of MGNQ to us.
>>27986719>I make sure to leave that out
>>27985799 >>27985800 >>27985804 >>27985818You decide to keep quiet, here. No provocation your ass, the little bastard knows EXACTLY what went down in Siberia. You don't need to remind him, nor does Kyuubey need you to spell it out for him either.So you stay quiet, merely returning Jyuubey's unblinking stare with one of your own. Breaking your silence momentarily only to ask Kyuubey if this is a bad time for you to be here, and if it's possible for your debriefing to be held at a later time. As if Jyuubey hadn't just tried to bait you into snatching him up off of his seat, smashing him into the floor and then stoving his face in with your heels."It's fine, Matsuda. Stay here. My brother was just about to leave when I called you in. We'll have your debriefing in a few moments." He then turns towards Jyuubey. "Younger brother, while I understand that you handle your own Officio differently--""Of course I do," Jyuubey snaps. "And clearly in a much more superior way to yours, older brother. You coddle your agents like children, even more than your vaunted Officio system forces us to." It's here that the nasal voice of the Tenth gains a sneering edge. "Do you consider them your daughters now, older brother? Do you consider yourself their progenitor? Or is that your insanity coming to the fore once more, like it did back then?"Kyuubey is silent at this, his face coldly impassive, and it's a while before he answers. When he does, you could hear the note of derision in his voice, despite it being as cool and as collected as always. "...I was just about to say, younger brother, before your interruption, that while I have always admired how headstrong you are, as well as your frank way of speaking. But as far as trying to provoke Matsuda here, as well as contemplating stealing one of my own agents...I would at least remind you that you came to me for assistance, dear brother. And I am giving it, despite everything." [1/2]
>>27986732He only leaves out the Direct Control clause, not the Forced Witch Out clause.
>>27986737Hey the summons worked.
>>27986751Looks to me like that's simply part of the whole grief-to-entropy-reversal mechanism, rather than a clause written into the contracts.
>>27986759I wish I could hate you to death.
>>27986737He pauses here, his bushy tail flicking leisurely from side to side behind him. "Please do not try my patience, or my loyalty to my kindred. Unless, of course, you wish to see more proof of how insane I actually am."Jyuubey had broken his stare from Kyuubey only halfway through his speech, listening to the rest with his head bowed and eyes downcast, seemingly contrite. Silence passes for a few moments before he finally replies, in the tone that reminded you of a freshly-scolded child. "...My apologies, older brother. The matter with the Prophet has set me on edge.""A matter that Matsuda handled for us last night." Kyuubey turns to nod at you. "Ably and with little in the way of casualties on all sides - including yours, if I remember correctly." Your Incubator sounds amused, now."Indeed, but Yoshitaka Mine--" Jyuubey tries, glaring at you again."--is alive, with both his kneecaps intact." Kyuubey cuts in. "Which, I assure you, is a miracle after encountering my Warmaster. Your stolen client is safe, your revenue stream remains intact, and you do not have to expend energy to reconstitute a body for an agent casualty. Am I right, younger brother?"More silence, and Jyuubey bows low here again, properly cowed. "...Yes, older brother.""Good." Kyuubey nods. "I'll consider this matter settled. Now, forgive me, dear brother, but I need to attend to my Warmaster now. You and your Warmaster may see yourselves out. A car should be waiting for you outside to drive you to your destination." Kyuubey's chair swivels around with a whir of servos, making him face the array of screens in front of him. Signifying that his meeting with the Tenth is all but done.
>>27986737>"...I was just about to say, younger brother, before your interruption, that while I have always admired how headstrong you are, as well as your frank way of speaking. But as far as trying to provoke Matsuda here, as well as contemplating stealing one of my own agents...I would at least remind you that you came to me for assistance, dear brother. And I am giving it, despite everything."Rare footage of Koobie actually angry.
>>27986769QB, you're alright.
>>27986769>You and your Warmaster may see yourselves out.Wait, the Tenth's Warmaster is here? Why did we not notice this? Is she a Callidus? She's a fucking Callidus, isn't she.
>>27986769>Your stolen client is safereferring to Midori?
>>27986769>You and your Warmaster may see yourselves out.What, she won't even come to say 'hi'? What a bitch.
>>27986791No, the Tojo Group.
>>27986783>Rare footage of Koobie actually angry.I think he mentioned that's why he's considered insane by the other Incubators. He has rare moments of emotion understandable by human minds.
>>27986769"..." You watch as Jyuubey glares at the back of Kyuubey's chair, as if about to say something particularly venomous - but seems to think better of it, hopping off of the chair it was perched on and trotting towards the double doors. It's also here that you realize that a Magical Girl was also with Jyuubey - except she'd been conveniently out of sight. She'd been standing a few ways off from the doors themselves, so still and quiet that you'd have mistaken her for a statue, or part of the background.She had white hair, that was for certain, half-covered by a black beret worn on a rather severe angle. Her costume resembled something like a napoleonic general would wear, complete with epaulettes and badges and medals. A stiff riding crop slept on a sling around her waist,her legs and feet covered with thigh-high black leather boots. A monocle, perched upon her nose, shone from her right eye....You didn't even notice someone in the same fucking room as you? You probably need that break more than you thought, goddamn.You watch her open the double doors for Jyuubey, holding them open before slipping through herself - but not before shooting you one last glare. You'd have returned it, but the doors quickly closed behind them."...I apologize you had to see that, Matsuda." Kyuubey lets out a sigh. "It's always taxing whenever I have to deal with my brothers - and with him, especially." Another sigh. "What am I going to do with him, I wonder?"How do you respond?
>>27986787He has been in general, this quest.
>>27986799"Get creative, of course."
>>27986799If you wish I am sure I could find a way to permanently kill him
>>27986799[x] "Set up for his inevitable double-cross."
>>27986799"Don't let your guard down or show weakness, for one. I don't think he'd hesitate to fill your back with more knives than I have guns."
>>27986799[x] If you decide to disown him, call me. I still owe him and his Officio.
>>27986799[X] Killing stuff is cathartic. Ever tried going after a mouse?
Has the theory that the Prophet is Oriko been debunked yet?I haven't been following these threads for some time, but it was my first guess upon the Prophet's introduction, and I was just wondering if anything has been proven contrary yet.
>>27986799"Give them enough rope and they'll tend to hang themselves. Leopards tend not to change their spots. Besides, that could have gone far worse. I could have stepped on him."
>>27986799[X] "... You are not that bad compared to him I guess."
>>27986799[x]"Ask the First if you can kill him and absorb his Officio, something like I heard what happened with the Third? It'd let us consolidate our control of our current market and expand our portfolio of revenue streams."
>>27986799Ask what he meant by giving them assistance.
>>27986799[x] "You are aware that his whole 'without provocation' thing was a total load of bullshit, right?"[x] Debrief
>>27986799[x] "How about I get to shoot him some?"
>>27986799[x] "I'd suggest eliminating the competition, with as much prejudice as possible. The Tenth, the Tojo Group, and now this Prophet bitch? Too many competing factions in this city. And there's only one thing that can lead to: politics."
>>27986799"Well, I can't speak for you, but if you ever decide he needs to be taught a lesson, i'm happy to oblige."
>>27986833Possibility that the prophet might be Misaka as well.
>>27986769 >"Please do not try my patience, or my loyalty to my kindred. Unless, of course, you wish to see more proof of how insane I actually am."Oh god, coobie Riggs. I love it.
>>27986833Everything points to it being Oriko so far. Possibly with a group of ex-Thirds and possibly with the Golden Staff
>>27986833Its either Oriko, or Misaka. The former needs murderizing. The latter needs to be protected from the crazies killing in her name.
>>27986799>How do you respond?"I might have a few suggestions as what to do with him... but you'd probably see them as too primitive and straightforward to actually act upon them." pull a cigarette "Well, if your attitude passes for insanity among Incubators, I'm glad it wasn't sane one that picked me up."
>>27986787We need to tell him so. Apologize if we have ever called him a dickbutt prior (which we have, of course). Because he ain't a dickbutt.
>>27986799"I'm sure you'll think of something, but I can shoot him next time if all else fails."
>>27986846>>27986850My memory i fuzzy, but when Lucius yapped to us, she said that the Prophet has lost someone dear because of Pinky.Who would it be for Misaka? Assuming I'm remembering right. For Oriko it would be Kirika, obviously.
>>27986833We'll find out while questioning Lucius and her bitches.
>>27986737>>27986769>Dat thorough dressing downNo one Coobie should have all that based.I would follow that squirrelcat into the bowels of hell.
>>27986846Why Misaka, if you don't mind me asking?Oriko seems a more obvious choice, given her grudge against Chiaki (for killing Kirika) and what happened in the actual Oriko manga.
>>27986799[x] Wait for a double cross? He seems like the obsessive, jealous type.
>>27986799 I feel better by calling him dickbutt, sir.
>>27986837Thrid was not killed and had given up his Officio willingly.
>>27986865Misaka mainly because she has displayed prophetic abilities in the past.
>>27986865Misaka has ACTUALLY predicted that we will end the world. Like, to our face.
>>27986799[X] Savor the moment when the little dickbutt gives you reasonable cause to end him?Hey, it's Saki as Warmaster. Where is Kazumi? You said there would be Kazumi.
>>27986799[x]"If there was away to prevent him from showing up in more surrogate bodies I could rig their headquarters with explosives.."Also, looks like the Warmaster is Saki Asami.
>>27986884>>27986885Oh, fair point! Thank you both.
>>27986837>[x]"Ask the First if you can kill him and absorb his Officio, something like I heard what happened with the Third? It'd let us consolidate our control of our current market and expand our portfolio of revenue streams."[x] this
>>27986862Misaka really hates it when we forget...
>>27986886>>27986897What are her powers?
>>27986881>Thrid was not killedThat's why I said "something like", to imply some similarity but not exactly the same.Besides, just like we killed Ahriman and 100 of the Third's MG's (not including the Eversor squads we murdered for saying they were going to rape Mami), there would be blood in such a hostile takeover.
>>27986864>I would follow that squirrelcat into the bowels of hell.which is quite probably exactly what his contracts stipulate.[x] "There's a human saying about giving someone enough rope to hang themselves."
>>27986834Seconding enough rope.
>>27986799Can't you complain to, I don't know, some alien mutant cat warmaster? Even if we aren't entirely blameless in the events leading to this cold front, I'm sure all the other cats would agree that conciliation is the optimal solution here, rather than his pissy snipes and obstructions.
>>27986912Yoyos that shoot lightning and Superspeed.
>>27986950Is that accurate? I haven't read Kasumi Magika yet, but I've seen Mirai pictured with a staff while she used a silver broadsword in the quest
>>27986974Miria's staff could turn into a sword in the series, but I guess Deculture liked the sword form better. She also summoned normal teddy bears instead of taking control of real bears.
>>27986912>>27986950Addendum: It has been mentioned before, but the Saints themselves are not a major threat since their individual powers are somewhat meh in the great scale of things, they are just dangers because they fight as a group and synchronize their Abilities well, thus if Dickbutt continues to throw one Saint after another at us its no big deal.
>>27986799[x] "The little niggas always wile out. Just wait for it, and you'll be the OG left with all his bitches and swag."
>>27987002They also like to take their time with declarations and posturing, never cold blooded murder through landmines, poison or sniper rounds.One day it will get them all killed.
>>27987002Homura without timestop is pretty damn weak too though. Presumably that's why we get the Golden Weapons, they're easier to balance too.
>>27986834Nthing enough rope.
[x] That treating your subordinates well thing? Totally paying off. Remind me not to call you dickbutt again if I ever do. Also, should you ever need an officio retired and get the paperwork sorted out, we'd probably be able to manage that.
>>27986974>>27986950Little bit more than that. She can control lightning, including bioelectricity. This allows her to speed up or slow down her bodily functions. Think Kiritsugu's Time Alter with added ZAP MOTHERFUCKAS.
>>27987040I wouldn't consider being able to summon all kinds of military hardware as being "pretty damn weak"
>>27987002>Implying the Saints are no big deal>Mirai delayed us with summons and held her own in melee against Kharn for a while and she was supposed to be one of the shittier ones
it's time for the sexiest banner
>>27987063Pretty sure Dickbutt was juicing her up, and those bears were already pretty nasty, being fucking Russian in origin and possibly corrupted by long-term exposure to Walpurgis Night.
>>27987063>held her own in melee against Kharn for a whileLike a very little while, she got dismembered pretty fast.
>>27987063Imagine Kasumi getting Ahriman's golden weapon...
>>27987075>dem armpits>dat eyepatch>dat grin with fangAll my boners/10
>>27987063This is pretty much the point I was trying to make. Thank you, anon. Let's not make assumptions that might get us killed. Everyone is potentially deadly until proven incompetent, I guess.
>>27986799"High impact violence delivered with a Ninth-brand smile.Not gonna lie boss that was fun to watch, don't tell anyone but you're not too bad.
>>27987061It is, really, pretty much any supplementary material mentions that Homura's combat abilities aren't very good (compared to other MGs) except for her timestop.
>>27987084SHADOWRUNS SHADOWRUNS OH GOD SHADOWRUNS!!!!!!!
>>27987144That and 'Is okay with a gun.'
>>27987144A lot of it was she never needed to be good probablyI mean shit when you are the only person able to stop time with a snap of your fingers then brawling isn't that important
>>27987176I think our Chiaki is slightly more competent than that, if unconsciously judo throwing Sayaka twice is any indication
>>27987144Original-homu maybe. One you live through several decades of rewinds of rewinded rewinds you're gonna get good at whatever you do even if you would try not to be.
>>27987196>>27987200Spending time as Kharn's underling probably helped a bit in that department as well. There must have been times when Chiaki/Homura wouldn't have had the chance to crank the shield for a timestop, or otherwise couldn't get the shield to work due to a certain witchy deity.
>>27987218AFAIK the shield got damaged some time AFTER Homu showed up in Charlotte's barrier. Before that it worked just like in the series, instant thought-activation.No idea when Pinky started interfering.
Gaiz, if the snatch&destroy mission is still days off, we should use a day or two for mastering some of our other golden toys, like Kirika's pigsticker and our own DEagle. Maybe the chainaxes too if we can wield them comfortably.
>>27987255We need to try the chainaxes. See if Madok-I mean Malal is in one of them.
>>27987247We weren't told the status of the shield during Mami's flashback. The earliest mention was during Kharn's flashback and it was already broken then. My guess is that Pinky broke it before leaving us to die in Charlotte's Barrier
>>27987255Might be worth doing, but I think the eversor training should be higher priority. It would give us something to talk about with Kirika, too.I don't think we have time, anyway, we'll probably leave tomorrow. Important clients don't like to be kept waiting.
>>27987255But why do that when we could master Midori's body instead?I'm for Kirika time before the prophet gets super serious.
>>27987255I want to talk to DEagle so much it hurts.
>>27987277We have two days and a Midorin.
>>27987255We can wield the Gorefamily more comfortably than Kirika's evil slicy bit.For that matter we should do our Eversor training with Gorefather/Gorechild since our bangles need to rest, and the sword is also right outAlso because we can use it with the chainblades turned off, so we dont risk turning Kyouko's bedwarmer into giblets.Thirdly its a good test to see what happens when we use a golden weapon of someone who is still alive.
>>27987247Chiaki forgot she has TK abilities. She needs to crank it manually when low on magic ala end of walpugisnaght scene.
>>27987255IMHO we should take Chainaxes over (before) Pigsticker.Kharn was jully murder happy, Kirikia was sadistic murder crazy.Well, unless we go with the plan of dousing Muramasa in Kong bath, since Kirika calmed down when wasted (but that's meta knowledge from Sayaka Flashback we don't have access to).
>>27987277Where's the harm in combing eversor training with double chainaxes?
>>27987255We should really try to master our DEagle since it's been with us the longest.
We may have one too many officios.
>>27987290>Talk to Deagle>Only get an echo, like if you're calling up a radio station while your own radio is up loud>Give it to Midori>Have the kinkiest sex we've ever had
>>27987274It was mentioned, however, that we stopped time for subjective DAYS at a time, only dropping out due to exhaustion caused by soulgem corruption.Also, the Wendy writeup did indicate that it was instantaneous and without manual activation.
>>27987303>We can wield the Gorefamily more comfortably than Kirika's evil slicy bit.When I talked about comfort, I meant the size of the things. They're taller than us by default. Unless they somehow size down, I can't see us using them with any skill.
>>27987313Eighteen too many officios, actually.
Guys, what if the DEagle is Walmart Night
>>27987322>Give it to Midori>Give Midori a weapon that we had to have a crazy arcanomedical procedure done to be able to wield it without going crazy.Great plan
>>27987341Best plan, even.
>>27987340Hmmmm wait what if it's this universes Homu?
>>27987327Oh, I'm not arguing that. Kharn's flashback showed Murderface using her Shield without relying on manual activation, but it was already broken then. At some point it just got worse
>>27987322We still haven't put our hat on Midori, so the sex thing isn't out of the question.However, giving her a golden weapon is a terrible idea. Even if it's the bangles.
>>27987362There was only ever one Homu.
>>27987375Homu is all.
>>27987362>jump timelines>kill this universe self>pursue love interest>mfw
>>27987397One Homu to rule them all.
>>27987341Did we ever actually go crazy? All it really did was amplify what we already felt, like we were in an emotional feedback loop.
>>27987375I thought we were given a hint that we weren't this world's Homura, and that she may still exist somewhere else, like Madoka did.
>>27987409Judging from Kirika's involvement with the golden katana, it might be a safe bet to assume that Chiaki would have gone down the same route had she continued to use the Golden Deagle without the Siberia procedure.
>>27987409>All it really did was amplify what we already felt, like we were in an emotional feedback loop.>giving that to Midori>amplify what she feelsNo reality can handle that much Homulust.
>>27987409Hmm, two possibilities with that:>give DEagle to Midori, she gets super grumpy, we talk about guns and how idols suck>give DEagle to Midori, she gets TURBO OTAKU FANGIRL EXTREME YANDERE MODEEither is hilarious.
>>27987427We killed a Homura with a red band in her hair in the dreamworld where we were split into multiple parts.However, we were split into multiple parts. That means, she is still inside us and we are her.
>>27987458Save it for the AU fanfics.
>>27987458Just give her the fucking hat. Tainting Midori's soul with FOFA is a stupid idea.
>>27987458On a more serious note, if we're putting stock into this echo theory, maybe the deagle is empty and that's how it drives the bearer insane and captures their soul. Turns them into an extreme parody of the person they were until they snap, go kill-crazy, and get caught.
>>27986834 >>27986837...Well, if he's asking you, then you tell him about a certain human saying: that if you give someone enough rope, eventually they'll hang themselves. Also, the one you heard during a Western movie - something about a leopard changing his shorts.Kyuubey is silent for a moment, his eyes locked to the screens in front of him, the round crimson orbs reflecting the scrolling information on expensive backlit LCD. "Matsuda, while I do appreciate how rare this situation is - your trying to actually help me with my problem regarding a recalcitrant brother of mine - I fail to see the relationship between fratricide by hanging, and forcing a member of the Felidae family to change his underwear." A moment of silence. "Or is this your way of trying to lighten the atmosphere with a joke or two? Because as fanciful as the connection is, I don't find it amusing at all."What? N-no. No, you weren't making a joke. You were just pointing out--"I know, Matsuda. I was feigning ignorance as a joke of my own. I understand what you mean." Kyuubey turns to look at you for the span of a single heartbeat, before turning back to his work. "I guess it failed to amuse you, too?"Yeah. It wasn't that funny."Alas." Your Incubator lets out a sigh. "Jyuubey is so hard to deal with, sometimes. Very mercurial. One moment he's your dutiful little brother, who wants nothing more than to please you - the next he's your worst enemy, accusing you of everything from treason to sabotage. It gets tiring fast. Even the Seventh, the kindest of us all, has a strained relationship with him at best." Another sigh. "Simply leaving him alone to his own devices, and striking once he's lost everything...it smacks of treachery, and of the worst kind. It is very tempting, though, if only to remove a constant source of stress." He shakes his head. "Still, he has his contractees to take care of. I will not deprive them of their Incubator, unless I have absolutely good reason to."[1/2]
>>27987453>Give DEagle to Midori>She uses Callidus magic to acquire penis>Impregnates MurderfaceBest End
>>27987476SHOW ME DEM MOVES BAYBE
>>27987477Why? Does she need it?
>>27987489Well, why not just assimilate his contractees into the Ninth, just like how he did with the Third? Isn't there some higher authority Kyuubey can appeal to, to ask permission for that kind of thing?"You mean the First?" Kyuubey asks. "...no, such concerns are below my oldest brother. We are autonomous, a Officio to their own, and we rarely bother him with our petty squabbles unless he himself interjects." It's here that he shakes his head again. "And that kind of expansion...there is such a thing as contractee bloat. If I am to destroy my younger brother, I will have to reave his Officio clean of life, down to the last girl. And Mitakihara ill needs another bloodbath like that."It's here that his chair swivels around to face you. "Ah, listen to me, Matsuda. Bringing family problems into business." He lets out an annoyed grunt. "Let's start over. Matsuda, I asked you to debrief me on your mission with Kirishima Ruri, right?"Yeah. It's why you're here."Very well. Please begin. Try to be as concise and as accurate as you can. The information you give will benefit the Officio."How do you describe the events of the last 48 hours to Kyuubey?
>>27987453No, no. It amplified what we felt because our soul is in the Deagle.If we gave it to Midorin, she'd end up possessed by us, like we were possessed by Kirika.
>>27987504Midori's soul is a great whiskey warmer. I think we'd all rather keep it that way. "Hey, Midori, gimme you Soul Gem. I need it for my whiskey."
>>27987512[x]"I thought the part of the contract where it sounded like she wanted me to sleep with her was just a joke, but I think she was serious. ...No, I didn't do it."
>>27987512[X] "ADGSUGHNRGDISNRBFHDJSNEFHI. That is my opinion, and I am firmly sticking to it."
>>27987504All I'm saying is that if you want HUE, then use the warmaster hat.Golden weapons are not toys.
>>27987512[X] Mention that Faust was able to disable our time stop ability, and that it still isn't working.
>>27987512[x] First, I'm not taking any more idol missions, ever.Second, turns out Ruri was never in any real danger.Third, Lucius appeared to kill me for the prophet.Fourth, I kicked their ass.That concludes my report.
>>27987533I mean the hat.If we're trying to be nice, we could just lick it.
>>27987512Give him the key points of what has transpired make mention (without adding the crazy girl) about how our time stopper is not working. Also make note that as decree as warmaster that you will no longer do idols/ (missions)
>>27987469No, Ribbon Homura is Primary Homura.We're some kind of bizarre Mirror Homura, based largely on the fact that we're left-right inverted. We apparently have some kind of connection to Prime Homura though, given that she was one part of our psyche in our Siberia Barrier. Also, Pinky ripped out our heart and threw us into a witch barrier, which is where Mami found us.Correct me if I'm misremembering anything.
>>27987512[x] Detailed about the incidents that happened during the contract. Stay professional. Also: "My Timestop has been disabled by Faust. She appeared when I stopped time to rescue Kasuga's Soul Gem. She wanted me to hand it over to her so she could eat it; I refused. She then went on a temper tantrum and disabled my Timestop ability."
>>27987469Decu answered in Q&A a long time ago that there is a Homu native to this universe and that she'll appear. Who knows if he might change his mind though about that though.
>>27987512[x] Briefly go over Ruri's flirtatiousness, her expectations, and understanding of magical girls. Include the yazuka and their experience with them as well. Go further into detail about the conditions of the attack on the concert, our role in it, and defeating the suicide bomber trick with Squad Hiryu. Mention that, like we discussed with him that night, we hallucinated dead friends like Kharn had.Also mention that Sayaka actually was pretty damn bearable.
>>27987533Fukken brilliant. We drink, Midori doesn't, but gets tipsy anyway.
Weren't we going to replace the hat emblem at some point?
>>27987512>>27987540>>27987573Yeah, those two and under no situation should we ever talk about wendy.
>>27987512"If I ever see another fucking idol it will be too soon..."
>>27987512[X] Since I can get to pick and choose my own assignments now, I'm delegating any and all idol missions to Sayaka or lower ranks. Kirishima Ruri was an annoyance and a pest, and is far too curious about magical girls for her own health. Start off by giving a quick rundown of the first day, sneaking around with Noriko and then getting pampered to annoyance by a flighty idol with too many questions. Explain the situation with Lucius againEnd with: And she tried to get me into a bikini so the next time I see her, I'm shooting to kill
>>27987613>yazukaI meant Yakuza, but I think I like this.
>>27987512[x] Kirishima Ruri spent the entire mission trying to sex me up, Enishi tried to sex me down, Pinky tried to sex me all a-ra-hound. Lucius tried to sex me in, a hallucination tried to sex me out, now I'm going to sex Midori all a-ba-hout. That concludes my report."
>>27987638Probably worth mentioning the Incubator apparently handing out Grief Seeds like candy to magical girls and offering no Officio support.
We should start a comedy group.The Ninth Perverse Joke: OVER YOUR HEAD.
>>27987512[x] Idol mission was routine for the most part.One attempt from the Tojo group engaging the principal, turned away.One attack on me in the stadium, holding the crowds hostage with suicidal magical girls. Claiming to be on a rogue group working with the Prophet, and the Tojo group was nominally involved with them, supplying them with information but disavowed them once they realised it was a setup of a terrorist attack.Took them down with help from the backup teams. Interrogation would probably give more info on the Prophet and what those crazy bitches were about. They claimed responsibility for the dead girl dressed up like Mami.No more idol missions from now on. And I think I'll avoid protection gigs if I can.
>>27987512[x] "Kirishima Ruri had no need for a Warmaster's escort. She requested my presence merely because she COULD, and so that she could find out how I tick' or some bullshit like that.She was irritating, manipulative, and horrifyingly effective at achieving her goal.The Tojo Group attempted to coerce her into signing over to them. Ruri herself stated that any idols that do sign such a contract quickly find themselves married off to corporate executives. I believe the implication there is that the Tojo Group is operating a sex slave ring, focussed on flavour-of-the-month idols, whom they sell off for good once they fall pregnant. Perfect business partners for the Tenth.And then there was that idiot 'reporter', calling herself NECO, that Sayaka seems intent on protecting. She's assured me that NECO will no longer be an issue, but I really doubt that."
>>27987512Key points:>Day 1Discovered that Sayaka is a big fan of Ruri Kirishima's work.Kirishima appears to have been approached by the Tojo Group to work for them. Seemed very adamant about not getting involved with them; however, the Tojo group managed to get Yoshitaka Mine in the hotel to talk with Kirishima, despite the hired security at the entrance. The hired security may have been enthralled or otherwise incapacitated momentarily by magical means. This may be related to Lucuis' involvement with Yoshitaka Mine, as learned in the interrogation on Day 2.Learned that there was an incident involving the death of a Kirishima fan. Apparently, this fan looked almost exactly like Ruri Kirishima, but was claimed by another family before an investigation could be launched. Do you know anything about this?>Day 2 Interrogated Yoshitaka Mine. He might have had involvement with the meguca Lucius in the past, but wanted out as soon as he learned her true intentions. Everything else you know about already.
>>27987512[X] MENTION THAT RURI'S LOVER MATCHES THE PROFILE OF A GOLDEN WEAPON WIELDER AS TOLD TO US BY PINKY.We need to know where Nanoha is, and what shes doing.
"People's ability to put up with me continues to amaze me."
>>27987667My sides, I needed those.
>>27987703Connecting "helps everyone" to "tried to befriend Faust" is kind of a stretch, I think that's about all we have.
>>27987512"Save for principal constantly swinging between bratty and flirty attitude the mission went smoothly up to the concert part. There, despite best efforts of girls under my command, bunch of rogue Magical Girls lead by certain Lucius blended into the crowd, their leader challenged me to a duel threatening that her friends will overload and witch-out should I refuse and presumably will do so anyway once she loses. I've accepted the challenge and stalled the fight long enough for our Magical Girls (with help of stadium security) to diffuse the bombers without spreading panic in the crowd. Terrorist's Sould Gems have been captured for interrogation. Right now I only know that they were acting "in Prophets name" and generally full of shit."
>>27987512[X] decribe all important events, meeting up with Ruri, getting Sayaka in as an 'adoring fan', the Tojo group entering the hotel with magical assistance, calling extra security and finding evidence of a spying cat, the stadium security, the tojo group arriving yet again and in the middle, trying to leave with the rich managers looking really scared, detaining and interrogating said people, the loss of our squad member and the challenge issued by Lucius, the coordination between squad Hiryuu and the non magical assets to single out the bombers, the fight between us and Lucius+lackeys, retrieving the soul gems of the fallen opponents and every bomber in the stadium, staggering off the field (with a little help), getting healed up and the uneventful end to the mission then on.
>>27987512[x] "47 hours of an insufferable girl pulling my strings, one hour of good, honest work. Without Miki and Karasawa to take some of the attention and work, I'd probably have gone insane. Or killed the principal, either or. The incident was expected, even if its nature provided some complications - frankly, I had half expected your brother's officio to interfere on the yakuza's behalf, and for this prophet business to wait for later, but such is life. I would certainly recommend investigation into their ties, after I nicely packed them up for you - I'd imagine they originated from the dissolved third, or maybe went rogue individually, but their associations in the time between then and now would be very important to know. Dealing with them proved rather simple, as their leader was, quite honestly, a single-minded idiot. Personally I mostly stalled them then beat them up once I got the clear, I believe the other girls could tell you more about the operation in detail, especially our dependable callidus."
>>27987734Faust explicitly mentioned the superhero shit.Also Decu retweeted it so it HAS to have something to it. explicitly mentioned the superhero shit.
>>27987764>That spoiler fuckupGood christ I hate tryping on tablets.
Chikuwa incoming, but no votes beyond this point count anywayyyyy!
>>27987678>The Ninth Perverse Joke: OVER YOUR HEAD.Not sure if Mami would go with it.
Alright, pausing for now! Thread to resume tomorrow night! Most voted action starts the thread!Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always appreciated! And we have a writeup for tonight! Questions answered after it!
>>27987860You're a tree, aren't you?
“You saw it? You saw the sacrifice yourself?” The dark-haired girl tittered across from me. …She hadn’t shut up since we sat down for coffee together. Her name was...Himiko something or other. The self-styled Shrine Maiden of the Golden Lady, my contact in Mitakihara, and yet another pain in my ass. …I tried to explain to her I was sitting in the stands, but she wouldn’t hear of it – it just made her talk more, and louder.“Was it glorious? Did-did the screams fill the stadium? Were the people there awed by Her-“ Jesus Christ, kid, have you never heard of subtlety? I cut her off before she could go off on another tangent, and she deflated in her seat, staring out the window instead.…I took a sip of my coffee. Black. Probably not what I would’ve ordered, but it was waiting for me when I got here. …It tasted pretty bad, but I guess I was grateful that Himiko – Shiraki, that was it. I was grateful Shiraki didn’t get me dog blood or something.“…What’s the Black Shieldmaiden like?” I took another sip, giving the cup a good, long look this time. It was plastered with the image of some angry-looking metal singer. …I wasn’t really sure how to answer Shiraki’s question, but she didn’t give me much time to think about it before asking again, louder this time, with a face like a pet waiting for its master to get home.“…Apostle Cooldown?” Pretty sure none of these people even know what ‘apostle’ means.The words were razors on my lips as I tried to explain what she...what Murderface was like. …No, what the Black Shieldmaiden – what Warmaster Matsuda – was like.(1/9)
>>27987887She was amazing. She was...I don’t know. Enchanting. A blossom of violence in a garden of sinners. Seeing her work was watching a whirlwind of icy hate and manic, primal joy. Every gunshot, every bloom of fire and thunder from every grenade was placed with a steely tenderness that only a killer could understand. She made murder graceful. She made it more than just a game, or a job. It was her own sort of kindness, and she loved it.…She was like me. She understood how it…felt. What it meant to kill someone. She stared through the horrible shit in the world and she stripped it away with her beauty. That was the Black Shieldmaiden. That was Matsuda Chiaki. …There was more to it, but Shiraki wouldn’t have understood, even as she leaned in closer and closer, hanging on my every word. …She was infatuated, too. But she didn’t know Murderface. She didn’t love her, she just loved the idea of the Shieldmaiden. A savior for the sick fucks out there. A hero for the crazy and the bloodstained.“I’d really like to meet her.” I bit back a ‘fuck you’. She wasn’t the one with a Kill Order on her head. All she had to do was walk to her Warmaster’s office and ask for two minutes to kiss ass. She was in the Ninth, she could just walk up to her and eat lunch together or something. My hand squeezed around my knife. Bullshit. It was bullshit. She didn’t even know her. She didn’t-Deep breaths, Wendy-san. It’s over. You died, she forgot. You don’t have a place in her world anymore.A gentle voice murmured from the table behind me, one that carried a golden warmth that made my cheeks burn a little.…Yeah. …She’s better off anyway.---(2/9)
>>27987903Much as I would’ve liked to ditch her for a late lunch consisting solely of a bottle of tequila and the barrel of my service pistol, Shiraki was most of the reason I was in Mitakihara. Apparently some Prophet and her goon squad had been giving them a lot of trouble here lately – the same Prophet, I confirmed last night, that was after Tomoe Mami. The girl Matsuda was hunting.…If I knew Murderface, the problem was as good as cleaned up already. This was basically a waste of time. But that wasn’t good enough, no matter how many times I told her. Of course she wanted to see the Shieldmaiden splatter the unworthy all over the pavement, but it was our job – mine especially – to join her. To help Matsuda hold up the unbearable weight of her sins.The sanctification of the city began when Lucius and the false Prophet were crushed by the Blessed Lady’s power, she’d told me. The gates to the Golden Land had appeared in the stadium last night, and now every drop of blood spilled in Her name would pry them open more and more. …I was supposed to oversee a ceremony, the first offering the Church in Mitakihara made to Her.Getting real sick of crazy bitches telling me what to do.We reached the old Shinto shrine at the edge of the city a couple of hours before the ceremony was supposed to start. I don’t really know from shrines, but it seemed like the place had been fixed up recently. Probably the effort of a lot of girls, treating this like an after-school club, or one magic architect. …Guess it was a little cute, if they were all as cheery about it as Shiraki.(3/9)
Wait, why do we think Ruri's Meguca crush is Nanoha again?
>>27987916They’d wheeled in a huge flatscreen to watch the concert footage on. Must have been a bitch to get out here, and it’d be even worse if it rained or something. …Wasn’t really sure what kind of crowd to expect. Maybe they needed a projector or something instead. It didn’t exactly seem like much of a religious ceremony thing. Little like reviewing a tape of a bunch of fanatics firebombing a mosque before mass.Maybe that was what they did now. Shit. I haven’t been to mass in like ten years. Not since Dad stopped dragging me out of my room to take me. …Wonder if he’d be mad if he knew about all this. Disgusted, probably.Someone inched up next to me while I was thinking, like she didn’t think I’d notice. I grumbled out a ‘what’ while she was opening and closing her mouth like a fish with Downs Syndrome.“S-sorry! Sorry.” …It was one of the girls that I met up with when I first arrived. Didn’t remember her name. Somethingko. Aqua blue hair, weird eyes. Nervous temperament. Probably expected it to rain, she was carrying an oversized umbrella that I thought might fit over the TV. Maybe she was the one that brought it.Spit it out, Umbrella.“Sorry! …Are you really the Apostle she sent? The Living Miracle?”…Sure. Why not. It was like all these people did was make up stupid titles.“Real…ly?” She cut herself off halfway through the word, like she’d choked on it, and the kid seemed to shrink as I stared at her. “Right. Really. I mean, why would you lie about that, right?” She spun the umbrella in her hands.“So…did you meet her? Do you know the Blessed Lady?” Even cringing away, her eyes were wide, filled with a wonder you only see in little kids and idiots.Now that’s rude, she’s your fan, sneered another voice, faint and distorted, like it came from the bottom of a sea of thick tar.(4/9)
>>27987931…Of course I’d met her. Met her on the edge of Hell, and she…A high-pitched whine filled my ears, and a hiss that almost sounded like giggling. …Yeah. …I’d met her, and she brought me back. So I could see Kong again.Umbrella took a deep breath.“…I’m a little scared of her. Is she…is she really like this? Himi-chan’s been acting weird since she joined, and…I don’t know. I don’t want to bathe the world in b-blood. I’m not really…I just wanted to be friends with youkai...Sorry, I know this is probably…” She trailed off, gripping her umbrella with everything she had. “…Please don’t kill me…”I opened my mouth, then shut it again. It was sort of nice to know that not everyone that touched this whole thing immediately turned batshit insane. …I couldn’t give her a good answer. Couldn’t just tell her to run, not when I wasn’t sure what to believe myself. But I wasn’t going to hurt her.“…Whatever you believe,” I told her, “don’t rush into it like a dumbass. A blood cul…church is probably not worth it if you’re not ready to serve a crazy murder god. …It’s something we always told the new kids back at the Eighth. You don’t get to take it back, once you start spilling blood. That taste stays in your mouth forever.”She smiled a little, though something about it seemed kind of forced. …There was one other thing, though. Felt like I couldn’t just…I don’t know. Let the only sane person I’d talked to in a while walk away without hearing it.“…Things are gonna get messy. No matter what you do. Especially in Japan. The Ninth Warmaster – the Black Shieldmaiden, Her herald, or whatever it is now - knows that better than anyone. What that means, though…” I just shrugged, and she seemed to get the message.---(5/9)
>>27987947I barely got a minute to myself after that. As more and more magical girls filtered into the grounds over the next couple of hours, they all wanted to meet me. Ask questions I didn’t want to answer, or questions they wouldn’t like the answer to. It was, unexpectedly, a hell of a relief when the ceremony finally started. …First time I’d said that about a sermon about the Blessed Lady in a long time.First time I’d bothered to sit in on one in months, too. It was all the same, whether it was Alice or Shiraki, whether it was the Second or the Ninth. …At least they had the dignity, now, to strip away the bullshit. There was no beautiful goddess to greet us when we died. There was only a candy-scented monster with more teeth than face, and if you were lucky and the people around you were crazy enough to…to throw away way more than they should have, then you got to come back. But you wouldn’t sleep the same anymore. And everything would be cold, and she’d……Doesn’t matter. Nevermind.“Sisters! Chosen! Beloved of the Blessed Lady! The Black Shieldmaiden has returned to us, and she has anointed our city with the blood of the wicked! The minions of the Prophet, the slaves of the False World, have fallen unceremoniously before Her Golden Power! The sacrifices have begun!”Shiraki howled out her rhetoric the moment the video ended, her eyes glowing a sickly yellow-gold in the darkness of the evening. The crowd screamed mindlessly in response, beyond a few…less-than-enthused newcomers, like Umbrella.“You have now seen Her Glory for yourselves – and not just you! Every blasphemous soul in the world now knows the Truth, now understands Her Beauty! The Age of the Blessed Lady has begun! The Doors of the Golden Land have appeared in Mitakihara, in our beautiful city, pried open by the power of the Shieldmaiden, who has finally chosen to grace this world and bear our sins once more!”(6/9)
>>27987955The screams became deafening, and an acrid, unbearable scent met my nostrils as I stared down at the magical girls that had gathered.“Children of the Third Messenger, of the Tenth Messenger! Of the Seventh, and our foreign guests! Rejoice and honor the Ninth, the House of the Blessed Lady! The Officio that Our Shieldmaiden has chosen for Her Golden Army! Honor the Golden Light who leads us! Honor her Holy Blade, honor the Blood Knight! We are but servants under Her Power, and tonight! Tonight, we begin our service anew!”…Shiraki paused for a breath, waiting for the crowd to simmer down. …She was breathing hard, her face flushed. …This was worse than Annie. This was even worse than V.“Tonight, we begin our consecration of the False World, our preparation for Her arrival! Tonight, we cut away the first of its rotting flesh! Tonight, we too shall begin to pry open the doors to the Golden Land with our very hands!”Lights, Callidus-provided I guess, shone down on the altar at the front of the shrine, silhouetting Shiraki and me as we stepped out of the way. …The scent got worse. I could hear it. I could hear Her.…They’d strapped a girl to the altar. Bound tight by sacred ropes, gagged and blindfolded. Silent. Probably didn’t have a voice anymore. Maybe literally.“Victim of wicked cruelty, child of the dead world! This creature will be the first of many to know the Lady’s Grace in Her loving arms! She is ignorant and broken, knows not her own misery! She mistakes paltry illusions around her for grand Truths! She knows only vulgar platitudes for joy! But now, now she will be free, and her worthless shell will be the foundation upon which we all reach the Golden Land! Apostle Cooldown, please! Please, honor this poor soul with the Lady’s mercy!”(7/9)
>>27987961My knife flicked into my hand of its own accord as I approached the altar. ...I didn’t want to do this. I couldn’t do this. The magical lights on me seemed to burn me through my uniform. …I never pretended not to be a sick fuck. I’m a killer. But I don’t…want this.Don’t you love her? Sweet breath in my ear as something…soft pressed against my arm, guiding my knife toward the girl’s chest. …A white, bloodstained glove rested on my own, with wicked claws that seemed to pierce through the metal and into my hand.…This has nothing to do with her. She doesn’t want this.Of course she wants this. You were there. You saw her. She looked like she was dancing, didn’t she? A small, soft head rested against my shoulder. …My gazed flicked to the side, and I met sunless eyes. Beautiful, sunless eyes, and a sweet, dark scent that filled my senses.You’re doing all of this for her, aren’t you? You’re here for her. You came back for her. …I need you to do this. She needs you to do this.…No, she doesn’t. This is crazy. This is…You’re the only one who can, Wendy. You’re one of my chosen. A very, very special one. You’re my living miracle. We can show her to the Golden Land together.“…And she’ll remember me…?” …I mumbled it out loud. I didn’t mean to. My mind had gone entirely numb, save for Her words.She’ll always remember you, Wendy.…(8/9)
>>27987972…The girl on the altar screamed as the knife sank into her chest, as it cut through skin and muscle and bone. As I dragged it down to her stomach. She thrashed in her bonds, what was left of her voice cracking in her gag. I didn’t care. I barely noticed. My body moved on its own in long, practiced strokes as my knife sliced down to her pelvis, and as I drew it again and thrust it into her thigh.My arm was so light. My knife was a part of me, like it used to be. …The cold knot deep in my body loosened, then vanished. I could feel it again. Warmth. It was so easy, as my knife carved through her, as her thrashing grew faint, then limp. …It was a little too soon, though. I hadn’t even gotten to her face yet.The crowd’s murmurs grew into cheers as Shiraki shifted, a smile of heated ecstasy growing on her face. Her hands moved, a flourish that I doubted was at all necessary, the gestures of a miracle worker. The girl – the near-corpse – under me began to convulse as her wounds erupted with a torrent of blood, one that whirled into the air, curling into a beautiful spiral.As the girl was drained entirely, it became an elegant, shining snake that shimmered scarlet and gold in the light as it danced over the crowd, sprinkling red scales onto their faces. …Clever. She’d cut her wrist to add more blood to it. Made a bigger show for the people. Preaching was half showmanship, I guess.I left my knife decisively buried in the girl’s neck, but it would be gone in moments. It was me, and it never strayed very far. …I didn’t really mean to, but I smiled out at the crowd, with the soft touch of slender arms of a pink-haired goddess wrapped around one of mine, squeezing it into an almost-nonexistent bust. The stench of blood and candy filled the grounds, and I could see the love of the Blessed Lady fill the hearts of every single girl there.For the first time since my contract, I felt really, truly free. (9/9)
>>27987929>She scowls down at you, before suddenly smiling sweetly as she licks her teeth. Changing tack - as well as emotions - at the speed of light. "Well, to be perfectly honest, no, actually that's really easy to do. But it's really, really annoying sometimes, especially when they suddenly get into their heads that they're some sort of superhero! One of them actually tried to blast me with the weapon I gave her before flying off! And she was really pretty too, we had the same taste in hairstyle and everything!" Pinky blinks her midnight-black eyes after a moment. "W-well, she had long brown hair, though, and she kept blathering on something about making friends and everything..."
>>27987991We know Nanoha is in the story, but how did we assume she was Ruri's girlfriend?
>>27987982>>Wendy is deep in cultist shitWell, it was nice knowing you

>>27988006Yeah, that.Fuck Pinky being best girl, we need to put her down before (or so) this shit goes Rebellion Story.
>>27987982Now how am I supposed to top that?
>>27988006>"A hero, Chiaki-chan." Ruri breathes this out into the airconditioned cold of the room. "She's...someone kind and strong and brave. She never thinks about herself or her safety - she just does the kind of thing you'd expect Superman to be doing, if he was actually real.">...What, like saving kids from burning orphanages and all that?>"Sort of." Ruri giggles here. "She just...does it. The rescuing thing, the saving thing. All the superhero stuff. And I don't think she's got an Officio like you, or all the other Magical Girls I've encountered. She always works alone, and she never takes any reward money or anything like that.">Sounds...well, remarkable. And a bit stupid, really.>"Is it, really?" The idol's tone of voice is pensive, here. Quiet. "Isn't she doing what Magical Girls are actually supposed to be doing, Chiaki-chan? Helping people, rescuing people? Protecting everyone's hopes and dreams?"
>>27987991>>27988069...Hm. At the very least, this bears investigation.
>>27988057I believe in you.
So, when do we kill Wendy, and how much of our Officio will we purge to rid it of this cult?
Pretty great writeup. Thanks!
>>27987982And lo, did Wendy go from 'maybe fuck' to 'NOPE'
>>27988094>>27988057... How am -I- going to top that?
>>27988069Given what we know of the Seventh, that could be any of his girls that went freelance like Yuu. Hell, it could be Sallaka for all we know.The link is tenuous at best.
>>27988094I still really love this drawing, hahaha
Time to put Wendy down like a mad dog.
>>27988101>>27988107>>27988134But why would you do that?
>>27988057If it helps, I like Odette a lot more than Wendy, even more so after this writeup.
>>27988113Still, thats two mentions of someone with an awful lot of dakka being a superhero. >>27987982OH JESUS WENDY IS THE PROPHET
>>27988094Guess I better quit slacking off...
>>27987982We need a Kumamon pyre macro that says "Why? For the glory of the Blessed Lady"
>>27988143KILL HERPURGE THE HERETIC WITH CLEANSING FLAMESUFFER NOT THE WITCH TO LIVE
>Remembers the "Hahaha!" about Midori's act a dozen or so threads agoOh god, Midori's in the cult, isn't she?
>>27988143It's okay, murder-tan, I still like you.
>>27988173I think there's a good chance that the cult will take and sacrifice either Kumatora or Midori.
>>27988145Oh gosh~Too bad Odette route will never be an option.
>>27988189Or maybe that was Kumatora that was just sacrificed.
>>27988200We're crushing everyone's hopes today, between us.
>>27988218No happy endings allowed.
>>27988143We have a strict one yandere only policy and textually, Pinky got here first.
>>27987982I am going to bitchslap the next person who says we shadowrun too much, when shit like this happens.
Okay, this cult is getting purged as soon as we catch wind of it in-character.
>>27988200it's not like that! I mean in general and I hope that she'll have a happy ending.I'm actually hoping for Midori to win Chiaki.
OH GODFUCKMAMI IS A CULTISTITS WHY SHE SPONSORED USITS WHY SHE WANTS TO TALK TO THE CAPTIVES FIRSTITS WHY SHE WAS SO DEDICATED TO KIRIKA LIVING
>>27988218>>27988233You're route a shitYou're a shitMelty Blood is your only redeeming portrayal
>>27988248But what happens if we get yandere Midori?
>Chiaki's trying to put an end to the cultist shit in her name, permanently>Chiaki and Wendy finally meet face-to-face when one isn't about to pass out from blood loss>After a moment of heasitation, Wendy throws herself at Chiaki>Begins to break down, cradled in Chiaki's arms, about how she never wanted any of this to happen>"I only ever wanted to see you one more time, Kong...">Chiaki strokes Wendy's hair>"...and tell you how much I loved you.">Chiaki gently kisses Wendy's forehead>"I know">Murderface, tears betraying her ever-stoic glare, decorates the surroundings with what's left of Wendy's brain
>it turns out EVERYONE is a cultist except usWell... when in Rome...
>>27988250You Shadowrun without probable cause.This shit right here? Probable cause.
>>27987982You are now aware that we have only JUST hit episode 3.
>>27988278>Chiaki doesn't get why shes crying>She still cant remember who the hell this crazy chick is, other than the girl who kills her in her dreams sometimes
>>27988277We'll just have to burn that bridge when we cross it, won't we?
>>27988250Let's be honest here, a lot of the shadow runs that made the Ruri arc unpalatable were really unwarranted
>>27988262Thinking about it. She was absent from her place when we entered the officio.
>>27988315We know who she is by now though, and that she was our ex.
>>27988262>Mami ends up one of the leaders of the cult>Chiaki torn between exterminating the cult and saving MamiWhat do /tg/?
>>27988336>>27988262mother of god.SET SHADOWRUNS TO MAXIMUM
>>27988380Kill the heretic
>>27988107You joking anon? If pinky's still on the table, Wendy sure is too. We'll just need to get rid of this cultist shit first, of course.
>>279883She will be purged, like the rest.The Mami we knew and loved is dead.
>MAMI'S A CULTIST KILL HERFrom white knights to batshit in a heartbeat. Never change, /tg/
>>27988380Mami would never condone such bloody sacrifice and if she did, she stopped being the Mami we know and love and became an obstacle.
>Mami is a known golden weapons user>had to resign from Warmaster for dubious reasons>notable absencesWhat if she is the prophet?
>>27988417Hang on.Magical girls are liches. They don't die unless their Soulgem is smashed.What if the 'sacrifice' didn't die and just bled on everything?
>>27988442I think when blood magic is involved things get wonky, especially whn souls are thrown into the mix.
>>27988421>Golden Weapon user>Being the ProphetHave you EVEN been paying attention? Golden Weapons are gifts from the Blessed Lady, and the Prophet and her faction are anti-Blessed Lady.
>>27988442>What if the 'sacrifice' didn't die and just bled on everything?Can we be sure that it was a Magical Girl?And even if it was, with Pinky drawing out their blood like that, maybe Soul Gem destruction isn't necessary for the soul to be consumed.
>>27988250>>27988328>>27988421See what I mean? The shaowruns are getting a little bit silly again
>>27988442Yeah, I was thinking that throughout. And I don't see why the cult would give the tiniest shit about non-MGs - certainly not to earn that insane tirade - so I can only assume she was one.
>>27988452>You have to kill the Prophet to save MamiOH GOOOOOOOD.Also, maybe we got off on the wrong foot with Lucius, in light of recent...events.
>>27988411You know, considering how the Callidus squad we sent for to support us for the Ruri misson keep going on about the Blessed Lady, it wouldn't be a stretch to imagine that something like half the Officio is compromised by cultists. And I can imagine the officio descending into civil war as we have to purge the cult.
>>27988456>Hating fun this much
>>27988486I think a bit of idol-like behaviour could turn them all around into a cult of personality on Chiaki here. They already percieve her as the shieldmaiden, all we have to do is denounce those preachers as heathens and make ourselves head of the cult, then curb the shit out of their murderous tencencies.
>>27988497I can get behind this.
>>27988486>All of the Officio is cultists>Even Kyuubey>We are the only ones not in the know>...Well, maybe Sallaka too.
>>27988486You're not thinking right, anon. They revere Chiaki. And only a few of them have any kind of contact with Pinky. We simply purge those (Wendy and, if shadowruns are right for once, Mami potentially excepted) then take control of it ourselves! Rule #1, no worshipping, just believing is enough. Rule #2, no sacrifices. Rule #3, be nice!
>>27988497I wonder how the cult would react to Chaiki saying something along the lines of "I'd really like nothing more than for your goddess to find a place to live that isn't inside my timestop and to stop fucking up my shield."
>>27988497>then curb the shit out of their murderous tencencies.Actually, aren't their murderous tendencies the result of Pinky's manipulation and corruption of their minds through these rituals? I think they're already all compromised.
>>27988548Party in Murderface's shield!
>>27988411Gotta love it. It's why we love yanderes; they remind us of ourselves.
I want to clear something up here. Why is everyone suddenly getting their purge on for Wendy? Because she (rather reluctantly) stabbed a bound sacrifice that, if it were a Magical Girl, may possibly still be alive? Because we already knew our ex was at least as crazy and murderous as we are, so that alone can't be it.
>>27988620This is true. Hell, we already know we regularly splattered captured magical girls in the Silent Room as Murderface.
>>27988620For me, it's that, reluctant or not, she still willingly aided Pinky in her plans. And I don't like the sound of her plans.
>>27988620Because TT is full of wimpy jellybeans. Wendy did that for Chiaki, so as far as we're concerned, we have her complete loyalty. Only those who will get in our way of saving Pinky need to be removed, Wendy stays.
>>27988682Technically we're still aiding Pinky in her plans.
It's...it's from that unlisted number, again. The one that sent you that message, way back in Iori's suite. In Midori's illusion. Asking you to wake up. The message before that told you to give up, and move on.The message now was no different, no less cryptic.No less irritating.>Don't bother with the procedure. It's not worth trying. It's not worth the risk.>No matter what you do, the outcome will be the same.>You should just give up. Isn't it time you gave yourself a break?>Who the hell are you?You tap at the SEND button, ignoring that small and often-ignored logical part of you that said that there is no way that message is going through. Kharn said it herself - if the reception inside the base didn't suck, what with you being deep underground, then any outgoing signal would probably be heavily dampened to the point of uselessness. But logic, right now, clearly wasn't working, with this nameless ray of sunshine able to send you a message.The message goes through.And the reply pops up immediately after. Surprise surprise, it's as cheerful as ever.> My identity is not important. Only my message is important.> The real Akemi Homura would have understood. She would have known that it was hopeless.> Let this be the last time you try to do the impossible.> Let this be the end. You cannot save her. You cannot save anyone.>A Fool.So, who was this? Wendy?
>>27988666>>27988620Because it happened right in front of everyone's eyes? Look, everyone knows Mami is evil to some degree, she LIKESmurdering people, any sort of people. It is the entire reason why she is so good at fighting and killing. Yet we don't care. That's easy because we never saw her do any right in front of our eyes. If you had twenty pages of Mami: After Action Reports lying around you'd be thinking of her very differently.Also Wendy is clearly not only nuts (that was clear since day one) but also very very possessed and may not be in control of her actions anymore. And that's a loose cannon you can't have kicking about.
>>27988666Theres a difference between killing people and twisting their souls into the service of a batshit insane goddess.
>>27988682>willinglyI'm not sure this counts as willingly. After all, Pinky's been throwing her voodoo magic at Wendy for quite some time. And even without that, Pinky's got her existance in her hands, both being responsible for her living, and easily able to cause her death.
>>27988708Doubtful. She wouldn't have known "the real Akemi Homura."
>>27988708We don't know for sure yet, but there's a chance that it might have been Malal, since she was shown tinkering around with phone programs and encryptions during the Kharn flashback.
>>27988744It doesn't sound like anything Malal would say...
>>27988719>not taking the Nanoha solution and saving herDo you even magical girl?
I remember hearing this term somewhere:>Homura HeresyIt's time, isn't it?
>>27988787I always thought redeeming Vegeta was retarded. Some crimes need to be paid for.
>>27988787But that's Nanoha's schtick. Chiaki will just fuck it up.Now, if we recruit Nanoha to do the saving, that might work.
>>27988802You sounds like a JUSTICEfag. I'm a murderhobo. I'm for saving her, you're for killing her.Oh god, the irony.
>>27988793Betray emprah-goddess Pinky, converting a few of her most powerful servants? Sounds like a plan.
>>27988828Nanoha is a murderhobo without the murder
>>27988828We can also jam her into the silent room for years on end or give her soul gem the Walpurgisnacht treatment. Preferably both when I think about it.
I do love it when a writeup provokes discussion.
>>27988857That's a decent idea, really. One WP-treatment to go!
Look, one or two murders are neither here nor there. Hell, I bet we could forgive Lucius if we overthink it a bit.Here's my proposal: We rename Wendy Cooldown Wendy Stabbby Mcstabby, and we make a rule that whenever she starts stabbing people all we need to do is say "STABBER NO STABBING" and she stops. How's that for compromise?
>>27988857What the fuck for?>>27988906Wrong, nigger. We say who to stab and when. Her talents are too useful not to use.
>>27988929We don't tell her who to stab, we just drop her off and let her rip, and then tell her to stop once she's done. It's fine!
>>27988941Now we're talking in the same language. I approve.
>>27988929>>27988941>>27988948You assume that she'll actually do as we say, instead of Pinky tells her.
>>27988971Remind me, who does she love?
>>27988971I assume it would involve breaking Pinky's control on her, seeing as how her motivation is entirely to get Chiaki to remember her.
HONORED COURT I AM HERE TO HOLD THE DEFENSE OF ONE WENDY COOLDOWN, MAGICAL GIRL BY PROFESSION, FUCKING NUTS BY REBIRTH.AS WAS MADE KNOWN OVER THE COURSE OF THIS TRIAL SHE DID INDEED MURDER A FELLOW MAGICAL GIRL IN COLD BLOOD. HOWEVER I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A CASE FOR HER NOT BEING IN POSESSION OF HER MENTAL AND BODILY FACULTIES IN FULL WORKING ORDER AT THAT VERY TIME, IN FACT THEY WERE IN POSESSION OF ONE MADOKA "FAUST" KANAME WHICH WILL BE ADRESSED IN ANOTHER TRIAL VERY SOON.I HEREBY WANT TO SUGGEST THAT HER PUNISHMENT BE LENIENT AND REFLECTIVE OF HER CURRENT STATUS. ONE AND A HALF YEARS OF SILENT ROOM PAIRED WITH RE-EDUCATION TO PURGE HER MIND AND A WALPURGISNACHT TREATMENT OF HER SOUL GEM IN ORDER TO RID HER OF ANY LASTING INFLUENCE OF AFOREMENTIONED INDIVIDUAL.THE DEFENCE RESTS, YOUR HONOR.
>>27988990She serves Pinky, she is only alive because of Pinky, Pinky has set up shop inside her mind and soul.Her loving Chiaki won't be enough.
>>27989018Really, retard? Really? Who gets her all warm and fuzzy inside? Is it Pinky? YES, IT IS!
>>27989043Except it's not...
>>27989027She serves Pinky because her love for us, she was resurrected by Pinky (wasn't it Godoka actually?) to get back with us and that setting shop up is negligible. She's ours.>>27989043Reread the update, cocklord? She's thinking of us all the fucking time?
>>27989043>how can my little sister miss this much subtextPinky is Wormtongue, Chiaki is the kingdom. Wendy is only listening to her because she's supposedly giving her what she wants. If we show Wendy the light, she won't need Pinky anymore.
>>27989004This member of the jury is swayed. However, if the other sides sets up a blatant strawman without shred of evidence, or bribes me with warm waffles in the jury room, I am liable to switch sides at a moment's notice.
>>27989016Maybe we need to get Midori on the case.
>>27989071Pretty sure it was actually Pinky who resurrected her because of the emptiness and cold she always feelsNotice Midori was resurrected by Madoka and she came back normally We do need to do something to sever Pinky's control over Wendy though she would be too useful in murderfucking this cult to pieces to just kill
>>27989111Well to be fair, it's possible (though unlikely due to context) Wendy came back normally too; everything else could have been manipulation/corruption after the fact.
>>27989111Should ask Decu tomorrow about who brought her back.And the way I see it, Wendy is our gal on the inside of the cult. We find this out IC, give her the sign and she purges the more maniacal members for us.
>>27989027But love can overcome all! That's what magical girls are about!
>>27989143You sure you shouldn't be reading Sailor Moon Quest, son?Also, everyone knows it's befriending that overcomes all, and leads to love. You got your causality mixed up there.
>>27989027That might be, but writing it off as undeniable fact with the current information available is a very large stretch.
>>27989105THE CASE FOR MURDERNATING WENDY:In that one night, Wendy has done more to pile nup bullshit that'll inevitably stand between us and getting drunk as hell then waking up to Mami's pancakes than everyone else combined.
>>27989143Love and justice always prevails!
>>27989071>>27989047>My arm was so light. My knife was a part of me, like it used to be. …The cold knot deep in my body loosened, then vanished. I could feel it again. Warmth. It was so easy, as my knife carved through her, as her thrashing grew faint, then limp. …It was a little too soon, though. I hadn’t even gotten to her face yet.How about you fucktards actually read the things instead of glancing at them?
>>27989204So ultimately, what really got her wet was neither us nor Pinky, but the act of stabbing a helpless young girl.
>>27989204>…This has nothing to do with her. She doesn’t want this.>Of course she wants this. You were there. You saw her. She looked like she was dancing, didn’t she? A small, soft head rested against my shoulder. …My gazed flicked to the side, and I met sunless eyes. Beautiful, sunless eyes, and a sweet, dark scent that filled my senses.>You’re doing all of this for her, aren’t you? You’re here for her. You came back for her. …I need you to do this. She needs you to do this.>…No, she doesn’t. This is crazy. This is…>You’re the only one who can, Wendy. You’re one of my chosen. A very, very special one. You’re my living miracle. We can show her to the Golden Land together.>“…And she’ll remember me…?” …I mumbled it out loud. I didn’t mean to. My mind had gone entirely numb, save for Her words.>She’ll always remember you, Wendy.Doing it because of brainwashing and love of Chiaki. Not because she enjoyed it. Read yourself.
>>27989204I wish I could beat your faggot ass, I really do.>>27987903>But she didn’t know Murderface. She didn’t love her, she just loved the idea of the Shieldmaiden>>27987903>She didn’t even know her. She didn’t->>27987916>it was our job – mine especially – to join her. To help Matsuda hold up the unbearable weight of her sins.>>27987947>Yeah. …I’d met her, and she brought me back. So I could see Kong again.>>27987955>And everything would be cold, and she’d…>>27987972>“…And she’ll remember me…?” …I mumbled it out loud.
>>27989204You may need to read up on correlation!causation anon. Just because she's a loon that gets off on gore, doesn't mean she did this BECAUSE she gets off on gore. She clearly has an understanding of how fucked up it is, and very good self-control in most cases. I'd imagine that's why she took up MGing in the first place, for a chance to direct her urges at more deserving targets (whether that worked out or turned out to be entirely too optimistic, well that's another matter).
LOOK YOU FOLKS. SHE GETS OFF ON MURDERING FOLKS, BUT SHE KNOWS IT'S WRONG AND IS DOING IT BECAUSE PINKY IS ORDERING HER TO DO SO AND DUE TO PINKY TELLING HER IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO BE REMEMBERED BY HOMURA.PINKY'S TRYING TO CORRUPT HER FURTHER BY MAKING HER GET HER MURDERJOLLIES OFF. STOP HER MURDERJOLLIES, STOP THE CORRUPTION. Unless she's too far gone by the time we get around to facing her, in which case she gets the full .50 deagle Madoka soul gem salvation treatment.
>>27989290>>27989223She killed before and after being resurrected, but never felt warmth while doing so. That only happened when she ritually murdered for Pinky.How can you cockmonglers not see this?
>>27989325I see no proof for that, she might have been like this all along.
>>27989342Sure. Deny the truth, uphold the inane.
>>27989325She only feels warmth when murdering for pinky now because she only feels cold otherwiseWhen she kills for pinky she gets to feel properly alive again through whatever shit the insane goddess is doingShe never felt warmth before when killing because she was properly alive and therefore always felt it.Learn to fucking read you mongoloid cocksucker
>>27989360Says the guy not even bothering to bring arguments.>>27989380That's what I'm saying, you retard? She only feels warm and fuzzy because of Pinky!
>>27989395And we're saying it's because Pinky is fucking with her head, not because she wants too.
You know.. This part>My arm was so light. My knife was a part of me, like it used to be. …The cold knot deep in my body loosened, then vanished. I could feel it again. Warmth. It was so easy, as my knife carved through her, as her thrashing grew faint, then limp. …It was a little too soon, though. I hadn’t even gotten to her face yet.could have happened purely because of these>“…And she’ll remember me…?” …I mumbled it out loud. I didn’t mean to. My mind had gone entirely numb, save for Her words.>She’ll always remember you, Wendy.As in, she thinks that through murder she'll get her chance at Chiaki and thus the warmth. Basically she needs a purpose to devote herself to.
>>27989413Does it matter where the crazy comes from? Not really. In the end she's still a mad dog and needs to be put down.>>27989430Which currently is Pinky.
>>27989325Even if the warmth was Pinky-induced, there's zero reason to think that it's a make-or-break kind of thing. If anything it's just Pinky's method of conditioning so that she can control her better, feeding her already unnatural obsession with murder and stabbing so it eclipses her reason, judgement and Chiaki-obsession. And given the series of events in this write-up, I'd hardly say it's gotten to that point yet - while she appreciated the kill once it was done, she never felt compelled to do it by that need for warmth or whatever. Only her wish for Chiaki actually convinced her to do it, there's none of the addict's desperate craving in >>27987972
>>27989454>Which currently is Pinky.You mean Chiaki.
>>27989454Yeah, that's where the argument is coming from.Most of us think we can save her from/channel the crazy. You just want to put her down.
>>27989460If we follow your argument then she did it against her will. She's already Pinky's sockpuppet and as such lost.Nice to see that we are on the same side.>>27989478Which is retarded. You can't control crazy. That's what crazy means.
>>27989488Magical Girls, redemption, saved Karn from a witch barrier, yada yada. Neither of us is going to change the others mind.
>>27989454Actually it does matter, she has inside info on Pinky's plans and her entire cult so killing her loses us all the information and the chance to use her to wipe it out in one shot by using WendyAnd on her own she is no more crazy or broken than Chiaki, are we going to put a bullet in our own soul gem as well because of that?
Whatever the result, I vote that this whole shitstorm ends in Chiaki flipping out in front of the cults."Fuck YOU, fuck YOU, fuck YOU, and ESPECIALLY fuck you Wendy for being enough of a dumbshit to believe anything that crazy bitch says!"
>>27989503>change the others mind.I can accede to that point.>>27989509But she won't ever be alone, because Pinky is inside her gem.
>>27989488She didn't exactly do it against her will, she simply didn't resist when she was presented with the hope that the one she loves will love her again.So... You have to wonder, just how many apostles are there? There is no way Wendy is the only one, is there?
>>27989488How does that follow exactly? I just reasoned out why she's NOT Pinky's sockpuppet, even if Pinky obviously has a hold on her - that hold is only through Chiaki, which means that there's still a decent chance it can be broken. And anyway, to be reluctant enough that Pinky has to step in personally to convince her, combined with her obvious lack of reverence for Pinky, are more than good enough indicators that she's nowhere near the level of fanaticism of other Blessed Lady goons.
>>27989526Pinky's also inside our timestop. I fail to see how it's relevant.
>>27989526And? We have a piece of walpurgisnacht in our gem and Midori has us controlling her gemThere are ways to get around that shit already in universe so it isn't the end of everything If we take too long and she ends up fully under her control then we will need to but while Wendy is still Wendy and able to think and even object to what she is doing then she is redeemable
>>27989554Our timestop is an ability we can just not use.Not using your soul, your very being, is a bit hard.
>>27989589>Our timestop is an ability we can just not use.Didn't Pinky force it to activate at least once? There's also the time where she made it tick like a motherfucker when she wanted to talk to us, and she got pissy when we didn't respond.
>>27989624Yep, on the way home from Siberia she dragged us into time stop because she wanted screen time
>>27989624The easier explanation is: she views Chiaki different from Wendy and all the other pawns. She has no objection to just forcing them to serve her without question, but she wants to break Chiaki the proper way, with their 'game'. That's why Chiaki is a-okay with the timestop, and Wendy and the rest are in danger.
>decu promised to answer questions after writeup>first question is if he's a tree>decu avoids answering any questions after writeupI think the gig is up.
>>27989702I mean jig. Jig is up.
>>27989666You know what I think we should do?Rip the shield off our arm and throw it at Pinky. Because fuck her, and her bullshit. When it was just her, us, and a handful of psychopaths? That was fine. But this shit is over the line.Besides, the damned thing's brought us nothing but trouble. All its really good for nowadays is the inventory and weighing one arm down.
>>27989725I sorta agree on the ditch the shield sentiments, since its basically just dead weight with Pinky cockblocking everything we could use it for, and especially since it'll fuck over the whole shieldmaiden thing if we don't actually have a shield...but thats a bit extreme.
>>27989852Well, maybe we could try leaving it at home for a mission, just see how it goes you know?Of course, what would probably happen is someone else finds it, puts it on, and fucks everything up.
>>27989900We could just stick it in our inventory.
>>27989931They'd steal from that too the bastards. And I'm not sure that's usefully distant, depends on how hammerspace works I guess.
