Well, there is just one thing. You have another mission lined up in a few days or so, right? Is that on hold now because of Oriko, or what?"Ah, you're referring to the mission involving the off-shore facility?" Kyuubey shakes his head. "No, that mission's still on your docket, Matsuda. Do you realize how that will look like to our client - and all the other Officios? About us dropping our active assignments simply because of a small group motivated by the most puerile and immature of pursuits - revenge?"...Well. You're not sure you've seen the Incubator as angry as this before. Even angrier than he was earlier, with Jyuubey.Kyuubey turns to look at you, before sighing. "I...well. I'm sure you have more reason to be displeased than I do, Matsuda. But I can't help but feel that this could have been avoided had I not asked Kharn to use a lighter hand with the Third." Huh. He did that, then?
>>28207906"Against my own better judgment, yes." Kyuubey shakes his head. "I thought it would have been...a much more compassionate way of dealing with things. Everyone, including the Eighth, told me that I was in the grip of insanity once more, to absorb the Third Officio into my own instead of simply having them destroyed. Every one of them favored the easier, cleaner solution. But it didn't feel right, to me." The mutant cat reaches forward with a paw, tapping something on his keyboard, and all the screens on his monitor array blank out. "It didn't feel proper. And now...well." You stay quiet at this. You're not exactly sure, but it seems like Kyuubey needs a bit of comforting right this moment."Kharn wanted them gone. She wanted to break every single one of them. She would've killed them all herself, if I'd let her. But after they all went down on their knees and surrendered, I had Kharn stay that chainsword of hers and allow them to rise once again, as part of the Ninth. ...I should have asked Kharn to make another throne out of their skulls. Or maybe even a coffee table."Kyuubey glances at you, his face as unreadable as it has always been. "Well, go on, Matsuda. You do have that engagement to get ready for, don't you?" He turns back to his monitor array, the screens coming alive with yet another tap. "Don't let my complaining about my own careless mistakes keep you."How do you react?
>>28207906the most exciting time of the day has finally arrived!
>>28207922"Everyone makes mistakes. You made one for the right reasons. It's one of the reasons I'm glad *you're* my boss, and not one of the others."Exit, stage left.
>>28207922"I'll finish off the leftovers in due time, as the new Warmaster.Fine, I'll do that mission, but afterwards I'll hunt down and end the Third's Remnants full-time. Let's not have this happen again."
>>28207922Grab fuzzy Overlord.Scratch behind ears.
>>28207922[X] Give him a disdainful snort. "Coulda been better, but cleaning up then and cleaning up now makes no difference. Adds up to the same. Don't interrupt my dinner." and then "Goodbye"
>>28207922Head to our office, check out the packages and just spend some time with our feet up not being attacked by visions.Once we are there, it might be worth calling whoever is in charge of interrogations to see how things are going with the people we caught at the concert. We need to pilfer a couple of their soul gems for Pinky at some point, after all.
>>28207922[x] "For what it's worth, I don't think you made a mistake. Morality of it aside, you shouldn't devalue compassion, especially with how it makes you look to your employees. A girl's less likely to jump ship if her boss values her as a person than as an expendable resource. I heard that somewhere, but can't remember where."And time to go to our office.
>>28207922"We can't see the future. Who knows things might have been worse if you would have destroyed them."Then just leave.
>>28207960>cleaning up then and cleaning up now makes no difference. Adds up to the same.No it doesn't. Cleaning up now means eliminating only those girls of the Third that went rogue. Cleaning up then would have meant killing every single member of the Third, regardless of loyalty.
>>28207922Nod and make to move but stop."For what its worth, I don't think it was that bad of a call. Kharn may be able to kill most but a core would have still survived, and this act may have played out exactly the same way, just with a hardened core.You care, Kyuubey. And thats more than what I can say for most of your brothers."
>>28207964"We can't see the future accurately. Things might have been much worse if you had killed them all."Office.
>>28207922[x] "It wasn't a mistake. You gave them a chance, and they spat in your face. They only thing you could have done better would have been to purge Ahriman's loyalists before integrating them."
>>28207922[x] its not his fault, Oriko isnt even a magical girl, much less part of the third.
"The road not taken, huh?There's no point in second guessing decisions you already made. Like as not you'd be sitting here bemoaning a lack of manpower."
>>28207922Sacrificing many for the sake of a few wouldn't be fair. It was the right thing to do, not like we can't handle a few troublemakers.
>>28207922"It's not like you to bitch about something you can't change. Do what you can now and don't worry about things like that."
>>28207922>>28207960Let's go with this. Besides, his compassion earned him valuable resources like our seer. That's good, practical thinking.
>>28207922Friendly reminder that a new voting limit was implemented recently
>>28207906[X] "My advice is forget about the maybes of the past and instead focus on the realities of the now."
is it just me or does anyone else get the feeling that this kyuubey,is much different from the cannon one and may end up being our greatest ally? i almost feel like there is a marshmallow end to this quest .
>>28208068Hes a good boss.
>>28207922"Mistake's a funny word for compassion boss, for what it's worth I kinda like you're brand of madness, so don't ever get cured ya hear?I'll see you tomorrow."
>>28208068theory: there was a wish in this time line that made him more humane.
>>28208081That's... actually very plausible.
>>28208068>>28208069Kind of yes, Kind of no. He is better in someways. But at the same time not trustworthy since he looks for his own agenda that just happens to the same at the moment.On the other hand he is more emotional so less likely to kill us for no reason. On the other hand from that he is also more emotional so his plans won't screw up as much because he can see the human element better.
>>28208068Its funny, he's the closest thing we have to a Big Good in this setting.Him, of all people.I think its one of the biggest plot twists of MGNQ.
>>28207922right then, this whole prophet business is his fault, so Mami's safety is his responsibility, anything happens to her, we kill him, over and over again
>>28207962Could we please stop with the>Feed Pinky soul gemsplease?
>>28208096Well, the fact of the matter is, unless something really really huge happens I can't really see our agendas diverging.We've got the same overall goal right now: Preserve the status quo. We're both very happy with the current state of affairs, and want to keep it that way. The Officio system is definitely something we want to keep around, after all.
>>28208108Quite frankly, if anything happens to Mami, I think he'd let us.
>>28208110Well, we do have a bunch of violent, Mami-murdering rebels to put down. Feeding them to Pinky pretty much guarantees they won't get back up ever (I think).
I wish we could contact the cultists and sick them on Oriko. Could be interesting and save us the trouble.
>>28208110We stopped her from feeding on one of the soul gems from our own officio, and we ignored her when she tried to get our attention before we met with Haruka. She's going to be really, really mad with us. We're going to need something to pacify her.
>>28208126Same as shooting their Soul Gems, but without the risk lo passing off Pinky for offering gems she doesn't want. It's a terrible idea honestly
>>28208114Yeah agreed. The biggest danger with him so far is pretty much him seeing a reason to get rid of us. Like a way to effect pinky or something then taking it.Right now we are pretty safe. I wouldn't be buddy buddy with him but we can trust him.>>28208110Yeah. I could see Chaki doing this if and only IF they really pissed her off enough to send them to hell itself. As is I don't think she is pissed enough not to just torture them herself.
>>28208144>The biggest danger with him so far is pretty much him seeing a reason to get rid of us. Like a way to effect pinky or something then taking it.We can avoid that by basically ensuring that losing us is not worth effecting Pinky.
>>28208126>>28208132What part of Pinky not wanting to eat those Soul Gems do you not understand?Do you want to antagonize her again?
>>28208184She never said she didn't want to eat them.At that point, the only soul gem we had on hand was our subordinate's and then she mentioned that she only eats 'select' soul gems.It's not that she doesn't want to, its just that she might not find them appealing.
>>28208184Its simple.If she doesn't want to eat the soulgems, we offer pancakes as a consolation prize.
>>28208175If Chiaki dies, Pinky will have a lot of free time on her hands, which she'll probably use to fuck shit up even faster than she's already doing.also, feeding gems to Pinky will come back to bite us eventually.
>>28208196Man, feeding Pinky Soul Gems doesn't sound right with me AND it runs the risk of pissing her off by offering her gems she doesn't want AND reminding her how we snubbed her on the one she did wantI think it's more effective and generally safer to just go the pancakes route.
>>28208217>it runs the risk of pissing her off by offering her gems she doesn't wantAsking whether she wants, say the bitches that hang out with Oriko is always an option.
>>28208217This.People are just trying to find reasons to be edgy and grimdurr.
>>28208229No, its not edgyfags at work here. This is a more insidious evil.Waifufags.
>>28208244Oh boy oh boy, time for a witch hunt!
>>28208217Pinky would also be "I want the purest soul gems, like the ones of your friends. The soul gems of evil girls are disgusting."
>>28208244>WaifufagsI want to know how many of anons were whiteknighting our seer instead of treating her as as a precious resource that she is.
>>28208263We haven't fought a Witch since thread 1, so I guess it's about time! Hahaha!
>>28208274So what was all that shit in Siberia if not a witch hunt?
>>28208274Ugh, Witches are SO last season.Now, a mass produced MGs reformed form the Witch state is the new hip.It allows them to have actual angst and dialog and weird quirks and killing them is sooooo dramatic!
>>28208274We weren't fighting or hunting a Witch then, so no. >>28208297This anon understands how it works!
>>28208303>We weren't fighting or hunting a Witch thenMidori _kinda_ was, you know.
>>28207945 >>28207954 >>28207963 >>28207983You shake your head, here. For what it's worth, you don't think what he did was a bad decision at all - and you're speaking as someone who regularly makes bad decisions, and are being punished for quite a few (including those you can't even remember making). This thing with the Prophet would've happened no matter what, or at least that's how it looks like to you. And it's not his fault if they took the second chance he gave them and just spat it back in his face. Some people just don't deserve second chances."I suppose. I've never really thought of it in that manner." Kyuubey seems to chuckle, here. "I'll take your words to heart, Matsuda. Right after I overcome my surprise at actually being consoled by one of my own Magical Girls - and my own Warmaster, no less." He shakes his head, his long ears swaying with the movement. "Maybe I really am going insane as they say."Insane or not...well. He's not to let it get to his head, but there's no other Incubator you'd want to be signed up with.There's a moment of silence, here, and you could swear that Kyuubey seems to be taken aback by your words."I...yes. That's..." He stumbles for a moment. "...Thank you, Matsuda."Heh. Stupid alien cat bastard. You turn around and make to exit his office, waving at him from back over your shoulder as you do so.. . .You manage to get to your own office without any problems or delays - although you do stop for a minute to glance at the office next door, namely Malal's. What could be inside it, you wonder? Did she leave anything there inside for you, a clue you could use to help you with the trail of breadcrumbs she's having you follow?Well, you guess there's the servo skull she left you, and it seems Yuma's finished fixing it. You can't help but be curious still, however. Maybe you can ask Yuma to let you in Malal's office sometime.[1/2]
>>28208403You step into your own office, and immediately see the two packages on your desk. One's a bit bigger than the other, and looks like it's from some upscale clothing store that you've never stepped into before. The other is an ordinary, if beat-up looking cardboard box with the word 'REMOV' written on its lid with black sharpie - making it obvious who's it from.Just as you try to take the lid off of the second box to get a look at what's inside is when you hear something coming from inside the Warmaster's Quarters. Like someone's sleeping in there, or something....It's Mami. Sleeping in your own quarters.Your personal blonde goddess of victory, in her business suit, but with the blazer off. She's kicked off her shoes, too. Lying on her side, looking peaceful and serene on the really big bed built to sleep an entire orgy. She's...she's hugging one of the pillows close to herself, too. In the way that you'd hug someone you're sleeping with.What do you do?Fantasize about being that pillow.Wake Mami up. What's she doing here?Other.
>>28208403[x] Let it cross your mind to wonder whether "Malal" could have been more than one Culexus.[x] Let it cross your mind that the suits are fairly generic probably to encourage exactly that kind of suspicion[x] Fucking Malal
>>28208416>[x]Fantasize about being that pillow.You don't give such chances without expecting me to take them.
>>28208416[x] Headpat, back to business
>>28208416[x]Lets get REMOV started. Memory lane!!!
>>28208416[x] Wake Mami up GENTLY. What is she doing here?
>>28208416[X]Wake Mami up. What's she doing here?Gently.
>>28208416>[X]Wake Mami up. What's she doing here?
>>28208416>[x]Other.Examine content of the packages.
>>28208416>[x] Let her sleep. Proceed to unwrap packages.
>>28208434>>28208438daw, noooo. Let her sleep.Also, [X] remember to taunt Kharn later about Mami sleeping in your bed.
>>28208416[X] Other-[X] Let her sleep - she probably needs it and definitely deserves it.
>>28208416[X] Wake Mami up. What's she doing here?
>>28208416[x]Wake Mami up. What's she doing here?
>>28208416[X] Ignore Mamis acquire REMOV
>>28208416>[X] Fantasize about being that pillow>[X] Carefully cover her with a blanket (or her blazer in lieu of one) without disturbing her rest
>>28208416>[x]Fantasize about being that pillow.then>[x]Other.let her sleep, if a hard worker like Mami feels the need to take a nap she should be allowed to rest. We can ask why she's doing it here once she wakes up on her own.
[x] time stop. become the pillowor without the hue, let her sleep she wanted to get away from stuff for a bit, go check the boxes
>>28208462[X] Oh, I like this! Switching to this!
>>28208449"Hey Kharn. I succeeded where you failed. I got Mami into my bed."*bluff check fail due to charisma -1*"Ha ha! You are trying to pull the fast one on me, yes? She just slept in bed while you watch, da?""...fuck everything."
>>28208468[X] Leave Mami a blue rose if the ones in our inventory are still fairly fresh
>>28208473>implying it's still not more than Kharn got
>>28208416[X] Carefully cover her with a blanket (or her blazer in lieu of one) without disturbing her rest.Seems like a good choice!
If we have time we should read up on MMxMM before our date. for christs sake we should know a about this girls life work a bit more, could help fill awkward silence, as well as get an idea for what kind of relationship she wants.
>>28208416[x]Fantasize about being that pillow for much too short a time, then wake her up.
>>28208497I think, you know, actually asking her about herself during the date, would be a more effective way to get to know her than making assumptions about her porn, and a better conversational topic to boot.
[x]cover with blazer, get to work
>>28208416This a bit changed.>>28208462>[X] Carefully cover her with a blanket (or her blazer in lieu of one) without disturbing her rest[x]Start up Remov
>>28208416>[x]Fantasize about being that pillow.>[x] Try to become that pillow, or replace it.Mami~
>>28208432>Updated my journal.
>>28208416>Fantasize about being that pillow.
>>28208509its still something we should read, its like dating a musician and never listening to her music, aside form MGing this was her life before us. Given its popularity people will recognize us and begin talking about shit we have no idea about.
>>28208497All I want for Christmas is a MMxMM writeup.
>>28208537[x] become the pillow
>>28208416>Fantasize about being that pillow.Then get Mami to help us play dress up for our date tonight
>>28208416>>28208462 This works well!
>>28208416Polite reminder that the voting period is now over
>>28208416Leave here be. She's probably had a long day. Drape her blazer or a blanket over her to keep her warm, then explore what's in the boxes, but quietly.
>>28208416[X]Touch butt and grope her gently.[x]Compare Sensation with other butts you touched so far. [x]Fantasize being that pillow while pulling this face[x]Carefully cover her with a blanket (or her blazer in lieu of one) without disturbing her rest after all that. We had a hard day at work, time to give ourselves a prize.
>>28208416put the hat on her
>>28208266>>28208270Because the idea of Haruka being taken made me literally giggle a little.
>>28208266> implying we weren't treating her with kid gloves because Omegon.
>>28208602But she is taken.Pinky has dibs on her soul.
>>28208602I only just now realized her costume is based off a Final Fantasy white mage
>>28208615ButPinky has dibs on everyone's souls
>>28208627We're not the one with the harem end as a goal, Pinky is.
>>28208568Heavy risk, there...BUT THE PRIZE
>>28208636Kharn and Pinky are running a bet who gets more girls.
>>28208627Timid Maodokami looks looks out for a nice, shining soul>Why, don't worry, little one, I hav->DIBS ON THATFaust shouted.Poor Madoka is now on the verge on crying.Bad Faust.Bad.
>>28208644Pinky taught Kharn the tongue trick as a reward/to give her a chance.
>>28208636Why settle for Chiaki when you could have ALL the possible Homus?And now we know why someone keeps making us restart the world.
>>28208547Maybe the musician would appreciate someone who doesn't know about their music, and lets that color their opinion of them.
>>28208416>It's Mami. Sleeping [...] on the really big bed built to sleep an entire orgy. Must be tiring.
>>28208648Every time. Every time.
>>28208662That's some right proper Homusexuality right there.
>>28208660Kharn and Pinky invented the tongue trick together.This is the reason Kharn managed to de-witch herself.
>>28208679Kharn is but the apprentice. Pinky is still the master and holds the Ultimate Tongue technique in secret. Now that Kharn has gone full hetero, we are the new apprentice. She will show it to us once we're ready.
These spoilers are arousing and disturbing me more over time.
>>28208728whelp time to fap.
>>28208602Just cleaned up the faces a bit and cropped it. Maybe I'll finish it some time
Rolled 3>>28208911Is the whole thing suppose to swing up or only the visor?
>>28208926Decu liked a model where the entire faceguard swings up, instead of just the visor (which is what I had been drawing for Malal so far)My excuse is that Yuma's helmet is a new model.
>>28208926I think he drew it so that both options are available?
>>28208911They look so cute together.
>>28208954Haruka, too, would puke her guts out if Yuma opened her visor. They could never be together properly. Yuma is doomed to a life without love.
>>28208954They're probably going to die together, too.
>>28208960Actually, given that Haruka spends her time in an anti magic room, I think the two of them are actually OK.
>>28208960Even in a full-power Silent room?
>>28208960If she's lucky she could be like Kyouko and have a high Culexus tolerance.
>>28209014Yes, lovely.This is perfect!
>>28209014This looks lovely. I think we should make it a goal.
>>28209017>>28209035uhthis is not the reaction i was expecting
>>28208449 >>28208450 >>28208457 >>28208462Despite wanting to leave the sleeping blonde alone - you find yourself moving close to the bed, before carefully sitting down on its edge. Slowly and deliberately settling your weight down, so as to not disturb her.. . .It's a rare thing, to see Mami like this. She's always been the kind of person who always presents herself properly to other people - taking care not to appear vulnerable or anything less than the perfect Magical Girl she'd always been. The last time you saw her break character was when she apologized to you at the airport, right before you left Siberia. And you felt so special then, to be trusted and held in such importance by her that she allowed you to see that side of her, the side she normally worked hard to conceal from view.And now she's...she's sleeping on your bed. Well, technically it's not really YOUR bed, since you have your own, back at the apartment - but it's the Warmaster's, and you're the Warmaster, so it counts as your bed. Right?Eat it, Kharn, you scream mentally at the former Warmaster enjoying her retirement in Bumfuck, Siberia. Eat it.Well, anyway. You should probably let her sleep - no doubt she'd worked through the night again, if her rumpled office clothes are anything to go by. She probably just planned to rest her back for a bit after bringing you your clothes, but fell asleep right away....Gah. If you didn't have anything to do right now, you'd replace that pillow she's hugging with yourself. It'd...it'd probably feel really nice and comfy, wouldn't it? To be squeezed between those soft, warm arms, your face buried into her chest--[1/2]
>>28209035I thought it already was.
>>28209049"...Nn? Chiaki-san...?"You freeze right in your tracks, your eyes wide behind your glasses, a cold sweat breaking out all over you as you hear the shapely young woman underneath you murmur your name in the sweetest voice you've ever heard. The fact that it's slightly slurred from sleep seemed to even make it sound more...loving, somehow. As if she'd just said it while dreaming of you.You look down and see her smiling up at you, her soft amber eyes hooded."Oh, it really is you, Chiaki-san." She giggles here, the sound of it - along with the sight of her teasing smile - turning your resolve into so much jelly. "I thought I was dreaming again. Have...have you come to take advantage of me in your own quarters?" How do you react?
>>28209058[x] "Yes. Yes I have."[x] Hug her.
>>28209058>[x] That's my line. Has Coobz been giving you too much work lately?Also, we should totally call Kharn and say that we got Mami in our bed.
>>28209058Deadpan "Yes".Then when she starts getting flustered or looks like she's about to say something, follow up with "I need to take advantage of your style, help me dress up for dinner".
>>28209058[x]"Do you want me to?"Lets tease her and take her off guard
>>28209058"Yes".As sarcastic and deadpana s possible.
>>28209058>>28209082[X] Think this works best
>>28209058[xxx] "Uh, blazer...was gonna cover..."
>>28209058"......again?"My shadowruns are screaming at me to flee or pull a gun.
>>28209085What will we do if when she says "yes"?This way lies catastrophic spaghetti containment failure.
>>28209058[X] "N-no! I wanted to pick up the stuff but then you were asleep and I need help getting dressed and and and."
>>28209058"No, but with a word you could change my mind."
>>28209058>How do you react?>[x] Drop spaghetti out of your pockets.It can't be helped.
Rolled 10>>28209058"Well you ARE lying on my bed. Seems like an invitation."[X] Attempt very hard not to spaghetti too hard.
>>28209082This>>28209085Instead: "Unless you had something else in mind...?" Deadpan.
>>28209082[X] This is good, I like this.
>throwing spaghetti all over potential mamihugsguyswhat are you doing
>>28209140The lure of spaghetti is seductive...
>>28209058[x] blush at the thought and point at the blanket. And apologize for waking her up.
>>28209140staying in character?
>>28209140Chiaki is not a social creature at her best.
>>28209140>see Mami wake up>start stammering>spaghetti pours out of our shield>somewhere in the distance we can hear Pinky's laughterFUCKING TIMESTOP
Would be highly amused if this was just Midori pulling a disguise.No, I don't have any idea why she would do such a thing.
>>28209140Turning it around would be unrealistic, given Chiaki's awkwardness and Mami being a social goddess.
>>28209058[x] "Yep, starting my own trophy collection."
>>28209177Oh I like this one. Supporting the use of timestop to cover our optional incompetence.
>>28209177can we please order 20 plates of spaghetti at dinner and stuff them in our shield? ya know, just in case?
>>28209058[X] Smile. "Just a little bit."
>>28209058>lean down and kiss the girl for fucks sake!
>>28209213If Pinky eats Mami I am going to kill you.
>>28209213>Our emotional incompetenceSpellcheck! Why must you do this to me every time!
>>28209058>Pat own head, remove hat if present.>Jump onto bed.
>>28209192I'm not saying turn it around.I'm saying HUGS FOR THE HUGS GODDESSBecause Chiaki doesn't really have anyone else to be a mother-figure, and she hasn't show her appreciation lately.>>28209242Hey at least it wasn't 'incontinence'.
>>28209058[X] "Wouldn't that be nice? I might do just that."
>>28209058And another voting period closes. I'm certain she's laughing at Chiaki right now
>>28209213thats not a vote, and neither is yours...
>>28209073[x] Hug the mami
>>28209058[X] "Yes. Yes I have."[X] Hug her.[x] Also grope her butt.I remember Chiaki slapping Mamai's buut various times before. Why did we stop?
>>28209254Although 'emotional incontinence' would probably suit Chiaki a lot more.
>>28209286>>Why did we stop?Characterization marches on. It happened once, by the way.
>>28209266Uhh, yeah.>>28209177here, Decu, just want to clarify that was in NO WAY meant to be a vote at all.
Rolled 13>>28209260One third laughing, one third jelly, one third yan
>>28209290Right up there with explosive amnesia.
>>28209293Hmm, only once? I'm probably confusing with the other girls she slapped the butt. It's been some time.
>>28209306"Miss Matsuda, I'm afraid you seem to be suffering from emotional incontinence coupled with frequent bouts of explosive amnesia."
>>28209324...my lungs can't take that much laughter....owie.
>>28209286>>28209293Because she gave us a disappointed look and this is like .. the second worst thing after finding out that Mumi is dead.Sleepy mumi is best mumi.
So about the girl that appeared in the mirror in the Silent room. She had a silhouette behind her. Was that supposed to be Homulily? I thought she looked different.
>>28209425That was Punky, Pinky's evil(er) twin.
>>28209432>PunkyIf that name for her wasn't canon already, it is now.
>>28209425It's related to 3rd Movie spoilers.
When can we start looking like this?
>>28209460Damn I hope that movie will be on DVD/Blue Ray to be subbed soon... even though it's not been that long since it hit the theaters.
Rolled 9>>28209460Tyrant. Lording your spoiled self over the rest od us who have not watched it. love you anyways
>>28209484They'd look perfect together.
>>28209514I actually live in a country where it wont be showing any time soon so I just gorged myself on spoilers...
>>28209460>>28209484I'd prefer to avoid spoilers if at all possible until I can see the movie myself, just to throw this out there.Also, you guys have generally been good about keeping spoilers minimized, so thanks and keep it up.
>>28209527Same, sucks being in backwater places with no regard for non Hollywood cinema
>>28209528Same.I haven't visited /a/ once since it aired. I'm missing so many NNB slow-pan scenery gifs I just know it.
>>28209528>Also, you guys have generally been good about keeping spoilers minimized, so thanks and keep it up.Yeah, we are getting a bit ahead of ourselves when Mami is concerned, but other than that, we are good.Show of hand is here actually anyone that hasn't watched the original series (and/or first two movies)?
>>28209503More like end season, actually. And no, we can't get that upgrade.It seems someone else has it.
>>28209581I haven't, so I leave the votes that relate to those to the people who know what they're talking about
>>28209581I haven't though I've read the Manga(s)
>>28209581I haven't seen the movies yet, sadly. No releases here, and I can't afford to fly to the other end of the country to go see it.
>>28209581Havn't watched either movie...
>>28209581Currently reading through the manga but apart from that I never watch Madoka stuff.
>>28208297We've seen what happens if a magical girl comes back from being a Witch. It gave us Kharn. I think even if we could harness that ability, I think any sane Officio would think twice before trying to replicate it.
>>28209604You're not doing yourself a favour. Although Another Story was interesting, the main story is best in anime form.
>>28209604... but the mangas are mostly bad.>>28209620The first two movies are basically recaps for the series, with a tiny amount of new footage.Seriously guys, if you haven't got a GOOD reason for not watching the series, you really should give it a go.
>>28209581>>28209601>>28209604>>28209636I've seen the series, but I know theres a couple of folks here that haven't, and you really should watch it. Grab the Meguca version of the Blu-Rays off Nyaa and go to town.Also, the Mangas were made after the animu, so you dont have to worry about the standard mango > animu trope.
>>28209639It also gave us Chiaki.But yeah, protagonist position aside, that really doesn't help that case any.
>>28209639What a happy coincidence we happened to sign with Incubator that passes for insane among his kin.
>>28209667mainly I don't wanna be depressed most of the week following (that seems to be the general concensus around the part of the tubes i normally hangout)
>>28209673>you dont have to worry about the standard mango > animu tropeSpecially since the manga are atrocious. Kasumi started good, but then it remembered it was a Puella Magi series, so grimderp it went. Same with Oriko.
>>28209639>sane Officio>sane>implying any bigger paramilitary group would discard the idea of a magical supersoldier
>>28209575>I haven't visited /a/ once since it aired.It's not like you're missing anything of value other than Kill la Kill hype and speculations about series finale.
>>28209653Hay man it's not like I don't want to but I'm a cheap bastard with too much pride to pirate stuff.Also I don't want the people I live with to find out my anime interests.
>>28209073 >>28209082 >>28209085 >>28209095You look down at Tomoe Mami, utterly speechless. Never had a bed ever looked as inviting as it did now, with the warm, soft blonde stretched out on top of it. Your cheeks burning fiercely at what she'd just implied, it takes you an awkward eternity to grumble out a reply. But what you actually replied with, well...it's anything but awkward."Yes." You hear yourself say, in a completely deadpan voice, with a confidence you didn't even know you have. You blink in surprise, at the same time Mami does - and you immediately reach up and pat the top of your head with a hand. You're not wearing the hat, right? You stuffed it into your inventory earlier before you met Haruka, right?...Yeah, that's right. You did. You're not wearing it."Chiaki-san...?" Mami looks up at you, propping herself up with an elbow. "I was actually just--" She tries to begin, rather flustered, but you cut her off as you allow yourself to fall forward on top of her. Both your arms wrapping around her as you pull her into a hug. "A-ah, Chiaki-san...!"You close your eyes as you press your face against her neck. Allowing yourself this one moment of self-indulgence - at least, the sort that doesn't have you killing bottles of Kong left and right. Soft. Really soft. And so, so warm.Honestly, you can die right now. It's over. It's done. Fuck Pinky. Fuck th e Golden Weapons. This is your Flesh of the Fallen Angels, right here.It's here, then, that you feel Mami's own arms curl around you as well, another soft giggle escaping her lips and tickling your ear. "Hee. I was trying to tease you, but I guess that backfired on me a bit, huh?" Her grip shifts a bit, and it's here that you feel her fingers running through your hair, smoothing it down your back. "Silly Chiaki-san. What am I going to do with you?"...You're not even sure what to do with yourself, sometimes. So that makes two of you.[1/2]
>>28209581Watched the show, read Kazumi Magica and Oriko Magica. Havent watched any movies so far, though.
>>28209682Actually, both Kharn and Chiaki are special cases.For one, Chiaki's psyche was put back together by Madoka herself.For two, Kharn came back from being witched out not once but twice. And the first time was seemingly sheer willpower.>>28209687>What a happy coincidence we happened to sign with Incubator that passes for insane among his kin.You know, it's worth considering whether we're -technically- contracted at all. We're not signed with THIS Kyubey, so far as we know.
>>28209667>The first two movies are basically recaps for the series, with a tiny amount of new footage.Fuck. And the third comes out here on February....Maybe I should call in all my Christmas presents from the family and head across the country to see it. I do have an Uncle there I could stay with.
>>28209727Mami makes a small noise here, the sort that she makes when she's worried. "...Did something happen? I heard from Kyuubey that you were going to talk with Haruka-chan, to find out more about that nasty Prophet business." Her hand moves back down to your back, rubbing a spot there that makes your entire body tingle. "Is there anything you'd want to talk to me about, Chiaki-san? Anything at all, I'm here to listen."Your personal blonde goddess of luck and victory is trying to comfort you, here.How do you respond?
>>28209727Good job setting those deathflags, guys.Superb job, really
>>28209727>Silly Chiaki-san. What am I going to do with you"absolutely anything you want"
>>28209745[x] Tell her what we saw in the mirrors, during and after the seeing
>>28209745[x] >relaxI just want to rest.Preferably not alone
>>28209745[X] I... I'll tell you later. I'm still trying to sort everything out... Can you help me get ready?
>>28209745[X]Hug tighter and tell her that Oriko's the prophet.Then ask her to help us save her (Mami, not Oriko).
>>28209745"Then listen to me when I say to not do anything stupid: Don't do anything stupid.It's Oriko. Oriko is the Prophet."
>>28209727>that whole updateNoice. Laughed out loud, even.
>>28209745is there anything that we need comforting from? im fairly sure we are good so just thank her for being there for us i guess?
>>28209745"Its complicated and at the same time it isnt. This Prophet was targeting me all along, I´m sorry I got you involved in my stuff."
>>28209745I know exactly jack and shit when it comes to clothing fashion and date conversation. Help!
>>28209745[X] "She showed me who the Prophet is... It's Mikuni Oriko."
>>28209745[x]Nothing worth ruining the moment with. We have more pressing matters for the rest of the day, after all. And thanks.
>>28209770[x] +1Tell her everything.Include the bit at the end.
>>28209745>>Trying to tell Mami about the Prophet right now. Guys stop! You'll ruin everything! It can wait until morning!
>>28209705About the one good thing from the manga was Yuma IMOKirika wasn't bad to start with but she went stupid
Come on guys lets not try to be late for our date."I want to organize a meeting with all the high ranked MGs on the subject tomorrow. I'll tell you all about it then."This meeting will be about the threat to the Officio and how not to get involved unless told otherwise.
>>28209745[X]"Its complicated and at the same time it isn`t. She was after me all along and because of that you got involved. I´m sorry for that. "[x]DO NOT TELL HER THAT ITS ORIKO BUT DONT OUTRIGHT LIE TO HER ABOUT IT. Should she ask, we will answer until then keep yer yaps shut.
>telling Mami the through.Have you learned nothing? Mami is too Naive Good for her own good, she'll doom us all and wonder what went wrong.[x]No truth for her, guys. Come on
>>28209745Nope. just want to enjoy this, the only time I have really felt comfortable since I woke up this time as this person
>>28209831>Come on guys lets not try to be late for our date.Mami is literally the entire list of people that Chiaki would be willing to risk Midori's wrath for.
>>28209745[x] Don't ruin itMami is the reason dealing with Kirika was such a pain and Oriko is doing this due to her death which Mami will think she caused, don't tell her.
>>28209745[x] "She told me that I'm going to end the world. Of course, she also told me that I was going to murder her before leaving, and I didn't, so whatever.Other than that, Oriko is the Prophet, has Ahriman's Golden Staff, is probably being possessed or at least influenced by Ahriman's vengeful spirit, and almost managed to kill us during a Seeing. Which Omegon says is impossible.Y'know. Nothing serious.She's going after you to get me back for Kirika. She has a bunch of very competent, very loyal followers. Please be careful."
>>28209745seconding >>28209771 & >>28209772
>>28209745[x] Tell her about the seeing.
>>28209837>Have you learned nothing?actually. No. I don't think Chiaki has. Not about Mami anyway.>YFW Mami shoots us in the soul gem
>>28209745"Kyubey just thanked me. Unironically. I'm still trying to comprehend it.">>28209824>Kirika wasn't bad to start with but she went stupidI am noticing a patern here.
>>28209290"Emotion incontinence" actually describes Midori a lot better, since her form of spaghetti involves being unable to keep herself from saying dumb things or keeping her heart off of her sleeve at all.
>>28209745[x]"It just seems like all I can do is destroy lives.."
I am entirely against telling Mami the truth. It'd be the same as the Kirika debacle.She'd try and TALK first. We have to tell her the truth, but not right now. It can wait. Come on guys. Play smart. Even Chiaki wouldn't tell her knowing what happened the first time
Guys srsly, dont be late. Explain. everything. later.
haven't watched or read a damn thing about madoka puella whatever, with the exception of this quest.
Guys, we alerted Oriko today, and Mami may well have made new plans for tonight. If she goes out without being informed of the threat, she'll be in huge danger.
>>28209875>>28209874>>28209862>>28209837>>28209831>>28209772>>28209822Yes, later. later is better
Wait. Mami found out about Kirika's retirement. She tried to talk Kirika out of it If we tell her about OrikoSHE WILL TRY TO TALK ORIKO OUT OF IT!
>>28209745"Shh... Spoiling the mood.">Snuggle up to her"I've missed you."Alternately"... Have you ever hated me, Mami?">yes/no"I think I've done something that will make you hate me (again)."
>>28209877And if we tell her, she'll go and try to TALK to Oriko, like she did with Kirika even after the other already had a kill order on her head. We really shouldn't tell her now. Tell her to stay at home or something.
Oy, you bastards. Don't spill everything to Mami. Tell it after we've buried Oriko. Don't involve Mumi.
>>28209745There's a new golden weapon user out there... and she may be targeting you... and they won't negotiate or compromise. Stay safe, Mami. I don't want to be Murderface again.
>>28209877Seconding this train of thought.*Mami goes out**Mami is brutally murdered by the Prophet**Chiaki burns Mitikahara to the ground*
Tell her later. Just tell her not to go out unless highly necessary. Warmaster's orders. Classified.
>>28209745Changing >>28209873To [x]"Lets just stay like this for a while longer"
>>28209745>[x] Tell her errything about Oriko
>>28209745[x] "I don't want to ruin this moment, but I have to. Mikuni Oriko is the Prophet, and she wants to kill you."I for one believe that if we don't tell Mami, then she'll try to "save" Oriko like she tried with Kirika. We need the Professional Mami to view Oriko as a threat to be terminated.
My vote is with the tell her later crowdBut if the tell her now fags win then AT LEAST tell her also that WE will try to save her, and that she should TRUST us with that. Its the only way she wont get involved.
>>28209889She also almost died in the process with the Kirika case. Chances are she MIGHT have learned thing or two.
>>28209877or we can just confine her to the building with a large bodyguard of MGs...I mean we're warmaster, we can do whatever we want
>>28209911Mami is really fool-hardy when it comes to her friends. Case in point, Kirika and Chiaki. I think this is a really, really bad idea...Also the voting period is now over so, shucks.Using Wendy because I really like this banner
Dont tell her anything (yet)Plan a meeting the next morning to officially announce how the Officio is to react to any threats from Oriko the Prophet. Have a talk with Mami afterwards to entrust us with dealing with this ourselves.
>>28209705Going grimderp was hardly the only thing wrong with Kazumi. It actually had some interesting ideas buried, but holy fuck was the execution monumentally retarded.
>>28209889>>28209891She didn't know about the Golden Weapons before. Mami may be a bleeding heart but she isn't stupid.
>>28209943Mami has a golden musket. your argument is invalid.
>>28209943Mami is the person who has wielded a Golden Weapon the longest. She had the Golden Rifle before Chiaki arrived in this timeline. Mami knew and she still tried to talk to Kirika. Mami gets stupid when it comes to people she cares about. I think this is a really bad idea, but I'm only one vote so who knows how this will turn out
>>28209929>She also almost died in the process with the Kirika casewhat?>>28209950Had. She threw it away in Charlotte's barrier.
>>28209934>Wendy's hat collection
...lets hope this doesn't fucking backfire.each hatingweYes captcha we will if our personal blonde pancake goddess of love dies.
>>28209967Except we have seen proof that golden weapons return to their owners at least once
>>28210005Placing in a vault for safekeeping =/= deliberately throwing away in a witch's barrier.
>>28209964>Mami knew and she still tried to talk to Kirika.To be fair, her own experience with golden weapons suggested that they weren't that much of a threat.>>28209967>Had. She threw it away in Charlotte's barrier.That wasn't her first. It wasn't her last.The golden weapons can't be got rid of that easily.
>>28209967>Had. She threw it away in Charlotte's barrier.It's not like Mumi's shtick is pulling out dozens of rifles when convenient, right. Unless you plan on saying that her golden weapon was one-shot-only. That's retarded.
>>28210000>...lets hope this doesn't fucking backfire.remember the advice we gave to Kyubey. There's no point in beating yourself up over the choices you've already made.
>>28209964Yes, but, how do you think Oriko was planning to get at Mami? If Mami still thinks that Oriko is a friend, because we didn't tell her about Oriko becoming the Prophet, then she could be invited for tea and cakes with a cyanide spread. If we tell her that she is being specifically targeted, and that this is Oriko involving and killing innocent civilians and targeting her specifically, then we can try to get Mami to go Full Professional and not be captured by Oriko.
>>28210036Well, not like arguing about it anymore makes any difference at this point. I'll just cross my fingers and hope for a good resolution.
>>28209934When I see that banner I always think of Space Station 13 and those fucking engineers that mess up the singularity. And the parrot.
>>28210018>That wasn't her first.Pretty sure it was.>It wasn't her last.No evidence to suggest that whatsoever. In fact, just the opposite; she discarded what appeared to be a perfectly viable weapon, during a combat situation, based purely on gut instinct. Even if the musket DID return, she would maintain that wariness.>>28210026She deliberately threw it away into a witch's barrier. She didn't fire it, she didn't hit something with it, and she didn't un-summon it; she made a concious decision to cease all interaction.I'm not saying I'm certain she no longer possesses it, just that the evidence would suggest such. I would not be surprised if she pulled it out again later; nor would I be surprised if it has been in someone else's possession this entire time.pls be charlotte it would be so adorable
>>28210073In my defence, as one of the people who voted for 'tell her now', I was going off her speech to us about not hiding things when we tried to be subtle about rescheduling, and the assumption that if we tell her about this but make it clear to her that our priority is her safety rather than doing anything to Oriko, she's less likely to take risks.>>28210100If the Engineers cant set up the singularity they're incompetent (or you lucked out and none of them have Engineered before).
>>28209934>Using Wendy because I really like this bannerYet another reminder that Hatchan has good taste.
>>28210114When she drew her first musket in the barrier she breathed a sight of relief. Because it was sliver, not gold.That implies shes come across it before, has likely used it before and is scared of it.
>>28210114>That wasn't her first.>Pretty sure it was.If you remember correctly, QB asks Mami if her eyes returned to normal. Henceforth, it's safe to assume she HAS used a Golden Weapon before. Mami knew what the weapon was as soon as she pulled it out.
>>28210133>>28210142And these are the basis for my comment of "Mami had a golden weapon earlier than anyone, before Chiaki even arrived in this time-line". The basis I was too lazy to look up, so thank you for that!
>>28209934We need a picture of Wendy with a Phanto mask.
>>28210175We need a picture of wendy with a wall of masks deciding which one to wearOr Wendy dressed up like one of the paday crew ( 2 piece business suit ) with a huge wall of masks behind her walking off putting one on
>>28210150How about plating the entire skeleton golden and making the person into a living artifact a la Wolverine? That would be a pretty horrifying opponent to face.
>>28210216And a more horrifying weapon to use after we kill it's wielder.

>>28209773 >>28209774 >>28209808 >>28209810 >>28209899You pull Tomoe Mami's soft, warm body tighter against you, not replying right away. This moment is...it's too perfect to spoil with talking about prophets and cults and people you're going to kill sometime in the near future. But she did tell you to be more honest, and it does concern her, so..."Chiaki-san?" Mami urges you again, her voice soft, barely above a whisper.You tell her, then. About the seeing. About what happened during the seeing - and what you found out from it, namely who the Prophet really is, who she's after, and what she has up her sleeve.You're scared, you tell her. Not of the Prophet herself, but...what she's willing to do to get to you. She's already made it clear that she's going to go after Mami, and you don't want to happen, so you're going to take care of it yourself. This Prophet business, you'll handle it personally, so that you can cross it out and Mami will never have to worry about it ever again.You just want Mami to be safe, you murmur into her hair.Because you don't want to be Murderface again.Mami is silent for a few moments before she replies. "...If you say it like that, Chiaki-san, then how can I worry even the slightest bit?" You can hear the smile in her voice, as much as you can feel the soft, pliant warmth of her body underneath you. "Although, Oriko-san being the Prophet...I still can't believe it. I thought...I talked to her about Kirika, told her that it was an unavoidable tragedy, and it wasn't your fault at all, but..."It's here that she pushes you back slightly, to look at you directly. "...Have you told Kyoko about this, Chiaki-san? If you haven't, it may be advisable for you not to tell her for now. She and Oriko-san are very close, and she may not take the news all that well..."How do you respond?
>>28210811[X] I'll let her know... but for now, could you help me get ready?
>implying the tell-her-now fags had more voteswhat?
>>28210811Hey guys, remember how we were telling how creepy It is that Kyouko got herself a golden spear?Now correct me If I'm wrong but wasn't Ahriman's shtick to brainwash her followers?
>>28210811[x] "I've only just got word of this. I'll tell them later, but you've got to help me prepare for tonight first."
>>28210811[x]"But what if Oriko tries to get to me through Kyoko? She has no scruples left anymore; she might hurt Kyoko to hurt me, and Kyoko's nice enough to get used."
>>28210862>>28210829>>28210857Guys, what are you saying?Mami said to NOT tell Kyouko about Oriko being the prophet.
>>28210811>[x]Agree but get Mami to promise not to try to reason with Oriko like she tried to do with Kirika. Just let us deal with it.
>>28210811[X] Maybe not now, but I will have to at some point.[X] You should start getting ready.
>>28210811[x] "She's not a target so It can wait until needed, but I can't keep my equerries out of the loop for long" then relax and inhale the sweet, slightly pankace-y scent of Mami.
>>28210871I read it wrong! Change >>28210862 to WON'T tell her.
>>28210811[x] "It's because of that friendship that she needs to be warned.">>28210851Kyouko was never exposed to the staff. She got Misaka to modify the spear because she though Kirika's sword was hella cool. It has nothing to do with Pinky.
>>28210811[X] "I haven't told her yet but I will have to at some point. Could you help me get ready for dinner?"
>>28210829>>28210862>>28210857>>it may be advisable for you not to tell her for now>>lets go tell herwat.
>>28210871Oh, you're right. Sorry, I'm falling half asleep. Change my vote for not telling her, then
>>28210888finally let me delete it
>>28210871Oops.Then my vote changes to this.>>28210896[x]
>>28210871And what did she say about being truthful?Ooriko knows kyoko. That she may try to use her may happen, or Kyoko may find out about her identity at a bad time and freeze in indecision.It's best that she finds out early. And hearing that shes the one behind the attempts to kill Mami should be enough for her to understand what needs to be done.
>>28210811Seconding this post:>>28210896>[X] "I haven't told her yet but I will have to at some point. Could you help me get ready for dinner?"

>>28210896Fourthing (so far?) this one
>>28210892>Kyouko was never exposed to the staff.You can't know that for sure. And what I meant was that Kyouko can now get an actual Golden Weapon and no one would notice. Kyouko included
>>28210811Kyoko needs to know, maybe tomorrow. We need everybody who knows Oriko if we're going to have a chance of talking anything out.

>>28210811How about we go ask someone that knows her best?[x]Tell her we will ask Sayka.
>>28210811Right then! Kyouko was mentioned so let's use her banner, why not?Also, wow, we're already on page 6? what is this, bizarro /tg/?
>>28211001Nicehatguy~! Can we get a picture of Murderface dragging Wendy through her timestop from Blue Roses?
>>28211001>Not "lick my armpits"Damn cat.
>>28211091I just got up, nya! It was damn Hatguy, don't blame me for his deviance!(thanks Hatguy for filling in as banner girl while I got some sleep!)
>>28211127So the Truth tends to doze off sometimes? That's great to know.
>>28211166Where do you think the tabloids come from? It's when Truth takes a cat nap
>>28211166THE TRUTH IS EVER VIGILANT through video cameras with footage to be reviewed in fast-forward later okay
>>28211222kinda slow there, bro.
>>28210811Too late, but may as well add my shadowruns:THIS IS A CALLIDUSWE DONE FUCKED UP
>>28211241Bumps are bumps. Though it seems we've hit the limit. I just like the image of Chiaki snuggling with Mami.
>>28211272Uhmmm....She is too soft. It has to be Mami.
>>28211091>>28211127>licking Kyouko's armpits instead of her navelI'm slightly disappointed.
Remember how Oriko shot at us through the seeing?What if we can do the opposite, pass a locator through the mirrors, or even a bomb through it?
>>28211297There is only one callidus softer than the softest sofa at soft sofa store.And if we have just fallen for her, there will be no regrets.
>>28211319that Sayaka with the navel / soul gem combo.
>>28211335Pretty sure that was the Staff.
>>28211335I don't think we are/have a mage of Ahriman's caliber hanging around.
>>28211335push kyoko through with orders to seduce oriko in front of all her followers
>>28211183So justice would..[Spoiler] sunglasses [/spoiler]Take catnaps?
>>28211372But Oriko knows the future so It's mudada
>>28211319>>28210811>>28211372Haha! Time for a say Kyoko!
>>28211402What if we dress up as Kirika and has a Callidus spell placed on us to look like Kirika? She won't be able to resist no matter what the future says.
>>28211402that is, unless Kyoko ACTUALLY falls in love with Oriko! As long as Sayaka is fine with threesomes of course.
>>28211442I think she'll be fine.
>>28211431So basically, we make Oriko go IT IS SO WRONG BUT IT FEELS SO GOOD we win?
So what team do we take with us once we go Prophethunting?
>>28211454I think she'd be even more wanting to murder us.
>>28211463> implying we need a team
>>28211518She's surrounded by her own bitches. And a Culexus. And has the staff. Yes, we do need a team. Perhaps several.
I wish I was here earlier. I would have suggested we take a picture of Mami sleeping on the Warmasters bed and send it to Kharn. Really rub it in.I suppose we could still ask Mami to pose for us.
>>28211579^^oh god so much this
>>28211463>>28211546The A-team.Sayaka, Kyouko, Tiny Pete. Rea on sniping. Midori, Enishi, Yuma on support. Kyubey actively monitoring the situation and sending backup if needed.
>>28211602I like this, though I don't remember Rea>>28211579doubt she'd approve of it
>>28211463KirikaYumaKyokoSayakaWendy1 Eversor squad1 Vindicare squadI don't know if we should bring Midori or Mami.
>>28211602>>28211627You do realise that Oriko will know exactly who we're bringing and will counter them perfectly, right?
>>28211623shes the Vindicare rank leader. We actually should probably talk to her, Kyubey was saying she had some info for us a few threads ago.
>>28211640We have more manpower than she does.Overwhelming force!
>>28211640there's only so much that can be done against a precog, just have to try keeping her from having a way out
>>28211640Why do you think she has access to counters for everyone?Doesn't help to see what's coming if you can't do anything about it.
>>28211640The trick to dealing with a seer is to force them into an uncounterable situation. That is to say, a super sneaky plan probably won't work? But rolling in with guns blazing and all the firepower we can muster could, assuming we could pin them down in one place. Which any other plan would also require.
>>28211659That's a good way to accidentally three squads of our OWN magical girls.
>>28211640We can just use dice roll on the spot to determine who to send. Nothing for the prophet to predict beforehand.
>>28211695...Except that doesn't actually stop her from predicting the results. She isn't reading our minds, she's reading the future.She could make a killing gambling, though.
>>28211695... that achieves nothing.
>>28211640>>28211672>>28211677Don't forget she has MAGIC on top of the prophesying. Magic is the ultimate ain't-gotta-explain-shit counter.>>28211695Unless the precognition works in the way that she sees each and every dice roll as it happens beforehand.Also this is a good way to shoot ourselves in the foot with a shit dice rolled team.
>>28211602>>28211627Don't forget that Kyoko may be upset with us making murder on Oriko.
>>28211677No. The trick with a seer is to show them exactly what they expect to see. Figure out where she is. Make a mock up of that place. Have your own teams dress as the enemy. Get a lot of movie makeup and stage effects. Have them defeat your own team, one by bloody one. Show them unequivicobly that not only do they win, they win fantastically. Then run the SAME EXACT SCENARIO when you invade - except now you're doing it for real. Suddenly they don't have sure fire proof that you all die and fail to succeed. You've reintroduced the random element by making a singularity into a binary.
>>28211640Her powers aren't as absolute as people seem to think. If that was the case, we would be dead already. Unless she wanted us to win at the stadium.
>>28211761Unless she sees us make the mockup.>>28211771DUNDUNDUNNNNN
>>28211757Hiding things from our aide is stupid. We need to tell her, or not telling her will come back to haunt us later. Sayaka can be there as moral support.
>>28211771Well, we have a trump card that is the Blessed Lady and by extension, Golden Weapons.
>>28211761This is a really interesting plan, but it kind of relies on having a lot of information about their tactics and personnel, doesn't it?
>>28211731>>28211761You're aware that she doesn't see THE future, right? She see A future. or multiple possible futures, at best.She cannot prepare for every future, only the future she believes most probable.And the most probable future is going full-out MURDERFACE. As Hakura though we would when we cam for her seeing.
>>28211789I didn't say hide it. I'm just reminding us that we have to talk to her first and be sure that she won't hold anything back just because she's a friend.
>>28211788The whole point is to have her see us in the mockup. Now she has a vision of two futures that look exactly the same - one real, one made up, but telling completely different stories of the exact same scenario. The hard part is avoiding anything in the area that delineates an exact date reference.
>>28211771Didn't Oriko not have anything to do with the stadium attack? Besides, we already know that she doesn't automatically see everything (otherwise she wouldn't have needed to be told about our scrying), but unlike her minions going off attacking on their own, or said scrying, neither which would be obvious to look for, Chiaki's eventual assault is the one thing we can bank on 100% her using seeing for.
>>28211757We don't necessarily need to kill her. I think it's safe to assume that Ahriman is at least influencing Oriko's actions, so separating her from the Staff should be enough to neutralise her.Her followers are all fair game, though.
>>28211801>>28211806I'm just pointing out how you deal with diviners. It would be nice, but usually it's infeasible unless you have a LOT of intel.
>>28211757I thought the current plan was to use Kirika to try and sever her connection to Ahriman. Having friends there saying. "I know you're still in there." might help.As far as I can see Oriko is being manipulated by the Golden Weapon. She is the perfect vessel for Ahriman. Full or grief, hatred, at her weakest moment, and most importantly wants revenge against us.If she still wants to try and kill us after her connection with Ahriman is severed. And I know just how DERPHUE this sounds, I think we should give Kirika to her.
>>28211791You mean the Blessed Lady who may be very angry with us at the moment? Yeeeeaaahhh, No.
>>28211882Well, it was why we won the stadium fight. Not why we'll win later.Also why are we assembling an A Team when we could assemble a MURDERFORCE
>>28211845>We don't necessarily need to kill her. We sort of do.>I think it's safe to assume that Ahriman is at least influencing Oriko's actions, so separating her from the Staff should be enough to neutralise her.She will still want revenge.. No golden staff? Hello contract! With a wish a la "I want to kill Murderface" we can expect fun times. Fuck no, off the bitch then and there.
>>28211845if Ahriman is bullshiting about fighting the pinky to take revenge, then we just need to convince Oriko that Ahriman is bad news. If Oriko somehow kicked Ahriman's ethereal ass but still wants to kill us, then we need to get everyone else to convince her cus she ain't listening to Chiaki.
>>28210896 >>28210892 >>28210884You blink at her words, before nodding. You haven't told anyone yet - well, besides Kyuubey, anyway - but you'll have to tell Kyoko soon enough. If you know the red-haired Eversor, then yes, she'll probably take it badly, but not as bad as her finding out that you've deliberately kept it from her. Besides, she's your aide, and she trusts you as her Warmaster, so..."I see. Well, I've no doubt you'll make the right decision, Chiaki-san. Just be careful when you do it, and try to be gentle when you break it to her. Kyoko's a big girl, and she has Sayaka to support her when it all gets too much, but..." Her voice trails off into silence, as if suddenly deciding against completing her thoughts. "Kyoko sometimes cares a bit too much, and may do something rash. If she does, ask Sayaka to help you rein her back in."Yeah. You'll do that. ...You thank her, here. For being here for you, and...and stuff."You don't need to thank me for something I want to do, Chiaki-san." Mami smiles at you again, that smile that makes every single shitty thing in your life seem insignificant and far away. "I'll always be here for you, alright?"...Nnh. You're not sure what you did to deserve her, and you're not sure you'll ever remember. But whatever it was, you hope it was enough to get Mami forever.The blonde giggles again, before seemingly remembering something. "Oh! I nearly forgot! Chiaki-san has that dinner with Midori later, right? I brought some clothes I'd like you to try out--"But you don't need clothes just to go to dinner, you reply, hunkering down again. You'll just take another shower and just wear your costume to it, like always. Maybe with the jacket on, so you don't look like you're cosplaying. That should be enough, right?[1/2]
>>28211942"Of course it's not enough, Chiaki-san! Honestly!" Mami squirms from underneath you, but you've pinned her down good. "Midori-chan's been looking forward to this, you know! You need to make tonight special for her, and one way to begin doing that is to dress properly!" It's here that she giggles again. "Ah, but I can't show you how, with Chiaki-san on top of me like this..."A-ah. Um. Right.. . .It was much more painless than you'd anticipated, getting this 'dressing' thing down. The clothes that Mami had bought you are...well, thematically similar to your Magical Girl costume, but made to look like something that actually might exist in someone's closet. The main colors match those of your costume's - black, with some white and purple, and the pantyhose you're accustomed to is swapped out for some thigh-high stockings, so it's not that much of a drastic change. You also have a tie, which Mami had to teach you how to tie yourself (and which she decided to simply do herself, after the twentieth or so attempt). All in all, it's not that bad of an outfit, but like the maid costume, it doesn't feel...natural. Making you miss the familiar comfort of your Magical Girl costume.About an hour or so into making sure you've got your outfit down, it's then that Mami's smartphone rings, from where she left it on your bedstand. She excuses herself to take it outside the Warmaster's Quarters, and you allow her to, while you yourself fuss with the stockings biting into your thighs. ...It's a bit tight, but you guess you can manage with them."Ah, Chiaki-san, I'll have to run! Kyuubey needs me to re-negotiate some contracts - the business kind!" She picks up her blazer and throws it on, before stepping back into her shoes. "Good luck, and be sure to show Midori-chan a great time during your dinner!"Yeah. Of course. ...You thank her too, for the clothes and all. And helping you.[2/3]
>>28211942>>That should be enough, right?If you have to ask...
>>28211960"It was my pleasure, Chiaki-san!" She leans over to kiss your cheek. "Thank you for letting me nap there, too! I'll probably do so again in a few days!" She giggles here, before finally leaving, the door closing solidly behind her. Leaving you alone in your office, wearing clothes that look good, sure, but...unfamiliar. Alien.Well, it's for Midori, so. You can stand a night in some strange duds if it's for her.You move back to your office. The box labeled 'REMOV' still there, taunting you with its lid barely closed, exactly how you'd left it earlier....Eh, well. You still have a few hours before the date. You can see what kind of clues Malal left you with the servo skull.You open the box, and peer inside. ...It's the servo skull, alright, but in a wildly-different form than how you gave it to Yuma back then. It's put together now, and looks like the Culexus also threw in a cleanup job and some detailing. She also threw in a product manual of sorts, consisting of some instructions written in a folded piece of paper - and you follow it as best you could, finding the switch on the underside and toggling it to ON.The camera lens-like bulb embedded into the servo skull's left eye socket begins to glow green, then red - and the machinery sprouting out from the skull's cranium and underside begin to vibrate and hum. And then, from its place on your desk, the skull begins to rise, floating up into the air until it's face to face with you.[AWAITING COMMAND], it hisses at you from a hidden speaker, scratchy with static.Awaiting command...? Oh. Wait. The manual said it took verbal commands, didn't it? And Yuma left you a list of commands to try out. You unfold the piece of paper and look it over again.>REMOV Command List:>RECORD JOURNAL ENTRY>READ JOURNAL ENTRY>RECORD VOICE NOTE>PLAY VOICE NOTE[3/4]
>>28211960ohh i do hope we get a drawing!
>>28211908The last resort should be killing her. If at all possible, I think we should try to save her. For Kyouko, for Mami, to get a bad ass sword that will be more agreeable in the future.If she really wants to try and kill us. I think she should be using Kirkia, not Ahriman. I don't want to kill her because she is being manipulated by a bitch, but I would kill her in self defense after giving her all to avenge her lover.Two things could possible happen if we give her Kirika. She becomes content that she has Kirika back, or she tries to kill us with her. I'm fine with either scenario, fuck Ahriman.
>>28212005>I'll probably do so again in a few days!And when she does, we take pictures and send them to Kharn as MOCKERY!
>>28212005There's a note here...something the skull's receiver being a bit on the glitchy side, so it may misinterpret commands and such. Otherwise, it's pretty smart, and you can order it around to stop playing and stop recording by just telling it to. And sometimes the software will crash from time to time - it's an unpatched software issue, and there's been no updates, so.What command do you issue Remov?

I don't want to kill her because she is being manipulated by a bitch, but I would kill her in self defense after giving her all to avenge her lover.>after giving her all to avenge her lover.What the fuck is this? Why would you allow that to happen? Are you in a play? For that matter, why would you give her yet another golden weapon? Thanks to the staff, she's a menace at range. You want to give her a sword that will make her a menace in CQC as well. Holy shit. Why would the sword even give a fuck? It certainly hasn't displayed any other emotion than KILL RAVAGE FUCK YEAH.A plan based on the idea of "redemption is possible" and "friendship conquers all". It's like she will see a golden weapon that houses the insane soul of her squeeze and will go:"yes, I see now the wrongness of my actions and I'm sorry." to us, who offed her crazy bitch of a gf. No, put a bullet through her skull and be done with it.
>>28212169no, it actually IS Kirigiri's outfit, with a few minor modifications. I'd know, trust me, hahaha
>>28212038>something the skull's receiver being a bit on the glitchy side, so it may misinterpret commands and such"remov, play voice note""deleting all info in memory"
>>28212185There are no gloves.It's not Kirigiri without gloves.
>>28212202NEVER GIVE THE QM IDEAS.serious ssipaisYes captcha it is very serious ssipais
>>28212181I hate to say this, but staves can be CQC capable - and it may not be just a stave. See: Kyoko's not-really-a-spear, Nanoha's Friendship Nuke....
>>28212047>glitchy speech recognitionNOW LEADING FORMAL GENTRY
>>28212181If Kirika still gives a shit about anyone, its Oriko. She probably won't be as deadly in Orikos body, partially because she won't want Oriko hurt..but mainly because Oriko hasn't contracted and thus can't do the time dilation thing that made Kirika so hard to kill.
>>28212219Minor modifications. No gloves, different pattern on the tie, and thigh-highs instead of pantyhose.
>>28212181Because the sword is fucking Kirika and we haven't really talked to her. Like, ever.
VOTING PERIOD IS SEXY
have to sleep now. hopefully date night happens.
>>28212227The Staff didn't help Ahriman against the Gorefather. And I dare say it's worse than a katana with a monomolecular blade. >>28212238>but mainly because Oriko hasn't contracted and thus can't do the time dilation thing that made Kirika so hard to kill.We are no swordswoman and we wrecked ass with that stupid blade. I don't want to fight a berserker just to indulge some redemption scheme of yours. Too many things can go south that it isn't funny.>>28212270What are you arguing for/against? I can't tell.
>>28212020Seconding this. When faced with the chance to get Kirika she'll prolly happily ditch the staff.
>>28212303Hmm, you know, taking this into account, I think we know how to solve everything nicely.AmberxOriko OTP
>>28212307>We are no swordswoman and we wrecked ass with that stupid blade. We wrecked ads with the gauntlets, too. And will probably do the same with the axes, too.
>>28212256You took away the best parts you monster
>>28212346...because the spirits inside them guide their owners! Yes, that's the entire point. Oriko being shit doesn't matter if she has fucking Kirika guiding her moves.
>>28212359Oriko lacks Kirikas time shenanigans. She's a fuckload less deadly without them.
>>28212378There's plenty of girls that lack time shenanigans. I still would love to not get in melee with them, much less giving them a fucking golden weapon.And we're on page 9.
>>28212359The hope is that Kirika would want Oriko alive more than she wants us dead. And thus help us bring her back to her senses. Because all she is right now is a proxy for Ahriman.
We should still have a chat with Pinky sometime today.
>>28212409Yeah, but a MASSIVE part of why Kirika was so hard was because she had.said shenanigans.Regardless, its a moot point if Kirika agrees to help us separate Oriko from Ahriman.
Due to page shenaniganshttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived!
>>28212436After we denied her a soul gem snack, snubbed her for a fortune teller, and then went out with her romantic rival, she'll probably not be in a very good mood.
>>28212465All the more reason to get it over with after everything else is done. Because sooner or later, we have to. Sleep might be nice too. Yeah, like that'll happen.
>>28212465I don't think she'll really begrudge us that last point since she likes Midorin too.Other two are still valid though.
>>28212465I actually got the feeling that she wasn't trying to snack on the fortune teller. I'm pretty sure she wanted to stop us before everything went south with the seeing.Plus >>28212496.
>>28212433The plan depends on some horribly specific things to happen. IF Kirika is still sane enough to give a damn (and doesn't just bullshit us), IF Oriko doesn't bullshit us only to get her hands on the blade etc. The things that can go wrong at every step? Way too fucking many. You don't even know if Ahriman is using her or just lending her power for a common goal. The plan is stupid and too complicated.
>>28212047 >>28212057 >>28212059 >>28212060The floating skull settles back down onto your desk, but its one glowing eye pulses steadily along with its digitized words. [COMMAND ACCEPTED. PLAYING. FIRST. AVAILABLE. JOURNAL ENTRY.]Static. Then clicking. Then, finally, you hear a voice speak. Another familiar voice, but...speaking in a different tone. A different accent, even. Rougher, unrefined, but still clearly...her."Alright, this thing should be on." It's Malal. And without the vox speaker of her helmet ruining her voice. "Uh, hello, I guess? If you're hearing this, whoever you are, then I am clearly dead. Let's get that right out of the way first. I'm dead, there's no going back for me, yes, it's all very sad, but I'm going to tell you that wherever I am, I'm probably happy and catching up on all the sleep I missed. Okay? Okay."A clearing of the throat. "Right. This account should be about the Virtuous Mission in Varrigan City, about...four years ago, I think? Don't ask Kyuubey about this, because we both agreed that no record should exist about this mission ever - or at least, records he knows about. This one is for you, and you know who you are." The voice pauses here, and when it resumes, you can hear the smile in it."And sit down. This could take a while."
>>28212508Basically this."Hey Chiaki, you do know you can just skip the middleman and ask me, right?"
>>28212547And that wraps up tonight's thread! Flashback begins tomorrow night! Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always great! No writeups today I think, so questions answered before I sleep!
>>28212571will this recording cause us to be late for our date?
>>28212571Is Kirika still sane enough to be talked to in that pigsticker?Thanks for running Decu.

>>28212571Did we get any Yuma and/or Haruka points last thread?
>>28212571Very smooth switch, decu! As long as it doesn't make us late for dinner!
>>28212611Next thread when?
Re-submit the thread for archival, since otherwise it only checks every two hours and we might miss everything after it was archived.
>>28212635way ahead of you.I always update again to include all the relevant posts+writeups.
>>28212670You're a good man anon.
>>28212612I would say so, yes! To both!>>28212624Hahaha!>>28212631Tomorrow night! Or I guess later tonight for me, since it's already 3 AM here.
>>28212520I'm just talking about the best possible case scenario.(hahaha)One step at a time anyway. If we can't even get Kirika to help, I say Oriko dies at the hands of Gorefather/child.But I would like to save her since it would make Kyoko happy and impress Mami. And for a bit of a meta reason, maybe even enough to convince her that Wendy couldn't pollute us back to our old lifestyle and let her see us in person.Plus, it might mean Kirika would be a viable weapon option. Instead of just something that sits in cold storage for the rest of this quest.
>>28212723>And for a bit of a meta reason, maybe even enough to convince her that Wendy couldn't pollute us back to our old lifestyle and let her see us in person.This shouldn't even be on the table. I'm still annoyed at Mami for pulling that. It's our decision, damnit.>Plus, it might mean Kirika would be a viable weapon option.
