Has to do with the Noir and Magia crossover that Decu and I will be doing soon. Have fun everyone!There are a lot of questions out there that people ask that they want the answer to. This is a story about those kinds of questions.What makes someone a person?What makes someone dependant?What is it about a person that makes them tick?Love! Or maybe not.What is it?Friends? A love life? Passion? Desire? What’s your answer, Faust?
>>28497542[x] Spirit! Passion! A red-hot flaming soul!Put 'Quest' in the subject field next time. People get mad if you don't.
>>28497542[X]That depends on which person you're asking about.
>>28497542[x] Being humanIts what makes someone... human, right?
>>28497542>[x]Everything. Love, Passion, Friendship. Just the ability to feel and experience life.

Belief?The ability to experience life?Maybe, maybe you're right. I may be a bit jaded after countless years of observing. Maybe... but I digress. That's all I wanted to ask you. Make sure you remember it in the very end of your life, okay?_________________________________________The voice in the dark quiets. The world around you lights up. "Faust-san."Another voice? "Faust-san!"A plea for help and a gunshot. The yellow bullet discharged from the barrel of your senior penetrates whatever was about to attack you. It's large, round and very sticky. Whatever it was, it wasn't clean. "Are you alright?" the twin-drilled middle-schooler puts a hand on your shoulder.  "Yeah, I'm fine, don't worry about it. Let's gut the witch." "I'd watch out, that thing can make you have hallucinations." Don't speak a word. Get right to chopping up the beast. Custom

“I’d watch out. That thing can cause hallucinations.” you shake your head from side to side, righting yourself up. Mami looks to the monster then nods.“Then we’ll finish it fast.” she smiles as she raises a hand. Your legs move so fast your mind has a hard time catching up. The end of the fight was already near. No opportunity to show off surfaced. The monster could cause hallucinogenic reactions just from the contact of its skin. What could you, a dual wielding swordsman, do against something that threatening?One black sword appears in your right hand. A white in the other. The Soul Gem at your neck blasts with a yellow light. Small threads tie themselves around the hilts of both swords. “You’re up!” the swords rip through the air from the strength of the throw. Instead of spinning like they used to - they advance toward the enemy straight on.The two swords separate from one another and start to dance around the colossal meat monster. They make quite a few round trips until the beast is unable to move. It screeches in protest but it cannot get free.“Tiro-” a large cannon materializes in front of Mami. Large metal legs dig into the ground to support the weight of the massive weapon. “Finale!” a yellow pillar of light escapes the barrel of the magical gun. The blast pierces through the bound monster. Mami’s attack completely overtakes the enemy. The familiar clink of the Grief Seed on the ground is proof enough of your new victory. Grab Grief Seed, immediately purify your Soul Gem. Congratulate Mami on a job well done. Was that a hallucination? No, that had to be more real. Custom

“Good job, Mami. Much quicker than usual.” you walk over to pat the blonde on the back. She returns a smile, placing her hand on yours. “Thank you for binding them up.”“Couldn’t you do that without me, though?”“I could have, yes, but having another set of hands to do it lets me set up for Tiro Finale that much faster.” she pulls her hand away and in a flash, reverts back to her casual clothes. A pink sweater. “Setup? You just shout ‘Tiro Finale’ and that’s that. Nice of you to try and compliment me though.”“I would appreciate it if you weren’t so negative.” Mami crouches low to the ground to grab the Grief Seed. “It’s who I am.” a shrug. “I’d think you would be used to it by now.”“‘Used to it’ doesn’t mean I still don’t find it annoying, Faust-san.” You sigh.She gives you a glare. Fine, fine, you win. I’ll do my best to stop, Mom. I can say what I want. Don’t say anything. Custom

“Fine, fine, you win. I’ll do my best to stop, Mom.” “Usually a child is more obedient.” Mami puts a hand to her chin. Again with the chastising. You really can’t say that you don’t deserve, what with you being a Negative Nancy as of late.“I’m in the rebellious phase. I am a teenager.”“Already? It’s only been a few months.”Mami continues with the teasing. “Can we just go home now?” your body blasts with a white light. The only thing that remains is the Mitakihara Middle School uniform.“Yes, we can.” Mami finishes purifying her Soul Gem before tossing it toward you. The Grief Seed hovers over the white Soul Gem before pulling the taint from it. “Kyubey.” you holler for the white rat.“Faust, Mami. Good job defeating the witch.” his compliment means absolutely nothing to you. Well - Mami’s usual comments have weight to them since they’re from someone you actually like. The furball? Not so much. The Grief Seed falls from your hand down to the ground where the Incubator catches it. He tosses it into the compartment on his back to ‘devour’ it, so to speak.“Faust-san?” Mami looks to you as she stands there at the other end of the alley, ready to go home. “Are you okay?” it seems like she’s going to be asking that a lot. I’m fine, just thinking about Homura. How can she be so ungrateful? Perfectly fine. I’ll just answer this for you - don’t keep asking me every two seconds. The answer isn’t going to change. Nothing, just hate Kyubey is all. Custom

“I’m fine, just thinking about Homura. How can she be so ungrateful?” You throw your life on the line to protect everyone. Defeat, or rather, delete Walpurgisnacht and everyone gets out peachy keen. There no casualties yet she is still distant, cold and aloof toward you? What is the deal there?“I’m sure she has her reasons.”“You’re SURE she does?”“Akemi-san isn’t the type to be irrational. If she has a problem with someone, I’m sure there’s a good reason.” you can say that so easily after knowing her for a few months? “Why don’t you talk to her about it?”“Talk to her? I would have better luck getting Kyouko to go on a diet than get a straight answer from her.”Mami chuckles at the comparison but then shakes her head. “It’s better than just standing by and doing nothing.” You suppose Mami is right but still, it feels strange. Getting Homura to talk straight to you? She’s the type of person to act first and ask questions later. Alright Mami, we’ll do it your way. I’d rather get Kyouko to go on a diet. Still doesn’t feel right. Going to have to decline. Custom

Do I have to read all of the Magia series (and retcons) to understand what's going on?I do know who this Faust is, at least.
>>28499969I believe for this one, you only have to read up to Rebuild. Seems to be taking place in the middle of it.
“Alright Mami, we’ll do it your way. Maybe I can convince Kyouko to go on a diet too, if this actually works.”“I never thought of Sakura-san as heavy.” “Just an observation, nothing important but yeah, I’ll talk to Homura tomorrow at school. What’s the worst that could happen?”You freeze then look up to the sky. Is that red? “Faust-san?”“Nothing, spacing again.”“... Okay.” Mami doesn’t ask if you're okay. At least that request got through.Now you wish she asked since you’re starting to see things that aren’t there. “Damn…” you steady yourself. Mami is already walking a ahead so she doesn’t hear you mumble and nearly fall over yourself.You brave through it all the way back to the house. The first thing you do is take a bath, get cleaned up and go to bed. You’re a bit nervous, thinking about your meeting with Homura tomorrow.
Morning comes the instant you fall asleep. Getting dressed and cleaned up in the bathroom is easy enough. Breakfast is already out when you exit the bathroom. “Pancakes, Mami?” you sit down on one of the many colorful cushions that decorate the living room.“I would have made eggs, but I was just in the mood.”“Mood for pancakes? Alright then.” you shrug. “Thanks!”“No need to thank me.” Mami takes off the apron, setting it aside all neatly folded. Right after she joins you at the table with a plate of her own.You give a modest smile while looking down at the grand breakfast. It was really something to have someone else cook for you everyday. This warmth wasn’t something that anyone could feel. You count yourself lucky before digging into the sappy goodness with a fork.______________________________Mitakihara Middle School.

It passes the time, you get to see your friends and there's something you probably want to do in the future? Fair enough. And yeah, so what if killing witch's doesn't pay bills? What if it did though? Right, funny joke, nothing that convenient ever happens to anyone.The shadow of the school covers you. Your eyes stare right through the doors. It still feels off. Something is nagging at you. As soon as you step through that-“Faust-san?” You turn around to see a green-haired girl standing there with a bag in her hand.“Hey, Hitomi. What’s going on with you this morning?”“Nothing at all. You?”“Thinking about the future is all.”“That can be stressful.” Hitomi smiles. Yeah, the future is something that people think about often and you’re no different. What are you going to do? You’re not exactly human --You aren’t human?Then what are you?Yeah, you’re Faust. That’s all you need to know.“It is.” you regain your ground faster than you did yesterday. The flash knocked you for a loop yesterday but not today. What exactly is there to do for a girl with no background other than being a magical girl for a month or so? Absolutely nothing in this world - that’s for sure. “It really is.” there’s also the fact that magical girls don’t have long life expectancy. Come to think of it, do you know of any magical girls older than fifteen?“Faust-chan!” before you can even finish the thoat - your twin and Sayaka come up over the walkway. “Hey, Madoka.” the day already brightens up with her around. “How are you?”“We’re doing fine, thanks for asking.” Sayaka looks straight at you.“Sorry for not acknowledging you, you’re easy to miss.”“Funny, Faust, funny.” the towering blunette rolls her eyes.“I try.” you grin.

“Do you guys know where Homura’s at? I need to talk to her.”“Homura-chan?” Madoka thinks about the question. “Don’t you have her number, Faust-chan?”“Can’t say I do. Could you call her for me? Please?”“O-okay.” she answers meekly while putting the cell phone to her ear.“What’s up between you and the transfer student, Faust?” Sayaka is the first to interject into business she’s not wanted in. Oh well, it was almost a habit for her to make situations worse than they needed to be.“Nothing. She’s just being ungrateful is all.” “Ungrateful for what?”“You know - what I did for everyone.”“Oh, that.” she frowns. Wait, why does she suddenly have the long face?“I-” you’re cut off.“Faust-chan.” Madoka interrupts with hopefully good news. “Homura-chan said she would meet you at the fountain near the park… um…” Madoka is probably wondering if you’re going to skip out on class. “No, when I meet Homura, I’ll be sure to come back here with her. Don’t worry, Madoka. We should be back before homeroom starts.”Madoka smiles. Hitomi starts to walk inside, “Come on, everyone.” she waves them all in. Sayaka slides me one glance then follows Madoka inside. Best not leave Homura waiting. Stand up Homura. She wants to be a bitch to me - I'll be one right back. Sayaka, what's up with that glance?

Best not keep the lady waiting. It’s not like she has all the time in the world.

Nervousness seeps into your bones. They shake in anticipation. Was this really something that you needed to have a ‘meeting’ time for? Why out here, away from everyone else? It was something that she didn’t want others to overhear. Wait, did she predict what you wanted to talk about? Mami said it herself - Homura was the rational type. She forgot to mention incredibly intelligent. So yeah, odds are she pegged you from the start. “I’m here.” you walk“I see.” her voice is cold like always. “What is it?” and straight to the point… not like always.“Homura, you’ve been really … uh, avoiding me lately. I want to know what’s up with that. You were distrustful of me before but now it just seems like you’re ungrateful. Ungrateful for everything I did for-”“What did you do, exactly?” calm, collected.

Is this a world worth saving?”“What?” The word flies from your mouth. “Are you daft? Are you stupid?”“I like to think not.”She’s being so cold and harsh you can’t even think straight. “What do you mean WHAT did I save?”“You saved a broken dream I happened to get caught up in. A fleeting fantasy.”“... Huh?”“Tell me something, Faust. Where did you come from?” she stands up and walks toward you. “Why can you do the things that you do? Why is it this world bends to your whim and no one else’s?”You freeze. The answers to those questions… can… what? “Where did this come from?”“From piqued curiosity. From anger and a mix of sadness.” she says that in a solemn voice, as if she wished the world were somehow not a lie. I’m Faust, that’s all I can say. I don’t know the answer to your questions.

Nothing is allowed to interfere.” her eyes are completely cold. These past few months mean nothing. The time spent together. Nothing.The sleepovers. The time you talked to her as Madoka and the time you talked to her as your own self. Absolutely nothing. This was the Homura of a single-track mind, the one that only wanted to save Madoka-Wait.

"I'll show the same resolve. If you want to protect Madoka, I'll protect this world and you, Homura. I'm not letting you go down that endless labyrinth again!" the twisting corridors of time would be the only thing that Homura has for a guide. In the infinite possibilities that she could endure - she would eventually turn into a witch. After all, every human being, every magical girl has their limit.She hesitates then frowns, "This isn't the Madoka I want to protect. This one is just like this world - a fantasy. Something imagined by you or someone else. It's not my timeline, my world."She says it's a fantasy because she says it is. But… "What if this world is real and yours is fantasy, Homura? If they're both the same in that respect - then why is it so hard to choose the one you know over the one in the unknown?""Because it's not-"[1/2]
"Yours? You're really stubborn, you know that?" you scoff. "Damn, just dammit." your hand runs through long, pink hair. "Homura, I don't want you to do something stupid. I care about you, okay? I don't want you to throw everything that I- no, that we worked for away. I don't want that all to amount to nothing but apparently you do. Wait, is that it? Is it because YOU didn’t do it, Homura? Is it because you weren’t the one to save Madoka?" “If Madoka was truly saved, I would be happy even if someone else was the one to do it." she begins. "As long as she could smile, be happy and live on, I would be happy. She wouldn't have to endure the pains of a magical girl, she wouldn't Witch." her stoicness begins to fade and replacing it is worry. "But this world, this Madoka - that illusion. The only thing it makes me feel guilt. Overwhelming guilt at what I left behind." she hesitates but continues her monologue. “Faust, I will do anything for her. Absolutely anything to see her smiling face again. If you can't understand that feeling, then I suppose no one will." … I understand, Homura, but I’m sorry. I can't let this world fall just because you want to go back. Dammit! You… you love to make this harder on me, don’t you? Don’t YOU? Custom
>>28502392[X] "I don't understand this at all! I saw her smiling just this morning! I...I think I'm missing something big here, actually. Just...just what are you talking about, exactly? Why do you keep saying that this world isn't 'yours'? Madoka is Madoka, isn't she?"
>>28502392[x] "And what exactly did you leave behind? Seeing Madoka die a thousand times? This is not an illusion, it's the real world, but perhaps you are so used to failing that you can't understand when you succeed"
>>28502392[X] "I don't understand this at all! I saw her smiling just this morning! I...I think I'm missing something big here, actually. Just...just what are you talking about, exactly? Why do you keep saying that this world isn't 'yours'? Madoka is Madoka, isn't she?"-[X] Think on it a bit.--[X] Make a connection between what Homura's saying, the bizarre voice asking you weird questions, and the strange red sky you saw before.
>>28502494Oh fuck, Homura might be right.
>>28502392[x] Dammit! 'Left behind'? Do you really think that you can go back to your original timeline? How many timelines have you passed through, never getting any closer to the one you started from? You've been walking farther away from where you started without even realizing that you're going in the wrong direction!"
>>28502507Yeah, pretty sure she is.Either that, or she's being retarded as all fuck.It's a really, really tough call.
>>28502507>>28502494>>28502526We might be in a barrier?Is it our own barrier, subconciously?
>>28502593Maybe.Either way, once we get Homura to back down slightly, we should ask for proof. Since while we have our suspicions...we want to be sure.
>>28502593inb4 our deito with Midorin in MGNQ gets interrupted by a Witch appearing nearby, we go to kill it and find an unconscious girl.A long haired Pinky/Malal with her heart ripped out.
"I don't understand this at all! I saw her smiling just this morning! I...I think I'm missing something big here, actually. Just...just what are you talking about, exactly? Why do you keep saying that this world isn't 'yours'? Madoka is Madoka, isn't she?" No. There is no belief that the world is real from Homura. If there’s no life to experience here, that means that the people here are hollow. It’s all a hollow.A far cry from the real thing.“You’re… right.” the red sky that you saw yesterday for just a second. The red flash earlier today. “What’s real?”“Well it’s CERTAINLY not this.” That wasn't Homura talking or you.It was...
>>28502593>>28502605And then this entire arc is a remake of rebellion!
>>28502645ITS ME FAUSTIT WAS ME ALL ALONG
A long, white-haired girl. Piercing red eyes. The form of a human but with the appendages of what seems to be something like Kyubey.The name comes out. “Anbey, what in the hell are you doing here?”“I said I was watching you. Observing you. From the very beginning, in fact.” What was this crazy bitch talking about?“Anbey? You’re-” Homura was about to talk but Anbey held up one of her appendages, going ‘shhh shhh’ to stop her from speaking. “Nah, my turn to speak. Myyyy turn.” she stands there on the fountain, both hands behind her back. The sky had dyed itself red.The ground turned a deep, lifeless gray.Whatever was happening wasn’t good.And whatever was about to happen was even worse. Homura, we’re running. Now. Attack the intruder so Homura can escape. Talk it out, Anbey has always helped out!  Custom
>>28502645>in b4 malal runs in crowbarring everyone for this.
>>28502779> Homura, we’re running. NowBAD NEWS GOTTA GO FAST
>>28502783Can she? Please?
>>28502779[x] Talk it out, Anbey has always helped out!"Wait! What you are doing to us is wrong! Why are you doing this?"
>>28502779[X] Grab hold of Homura's shoulder.-[X] "HOMURA HIT THE SHIELD HIT THE SHIELD HIT THE SHIELD"
>>28502779>[x] Talk it outDamn, I forgot Magia also had a very annoying very powerful entity that may or may not have the hots for us.
>>28502842This.Nope the fuck out of this timeline.
>>28502843isn't it also related or some dumb shit in some of them?i actually forgot the backstory behind some of this.i also remember the protag had some weird better friendship=more random ass abilities thing.
So can someone who's read Magia sum it up for me, how it connects to MGNQ now?
>>28502904>So can someone who's read Magia sum it up for meMAGIA IS THE STORY OF FAUST, WHO WAS NOT ORIGINALLY CALLED FAUSTONE DAY SOMEONE WOKE UP IN MADOKAS BODY WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE TV SERIES AND PROCEEDS TO TRY AND ABUSE META TO MAKE EVERYTHING BETTERBECAUSE THIS PERSON IS CONTROLLED BY /a/ THEY DON'T. IN FACT THEY MAKE EVERYTHING WORSE BECAUSE /a/ IS FILLED WITH RETARDSLATER ON /a/ FOUND OUT THAT THEY WEREN'T ACTUALLY MADOKA, JUST POSSESSING HER BODY WHILE SHE REMAINS A SEPERATE ENTITYBLAH BLAH BLAH SHIT GETS RETARDED WITH MULTIVERSE REINCARNATION BULLSHIT THEN EVERYTHING GETS RETCONNED BECAUSE CHRIST IT WAS AWFULLIKE, SERIOUSLY AWFULYOU HAVE NO IDEATHE ENDTHERE'S A WIKI OR SOME SHIT IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE>how it connects to MGNQ nowWE DON'T KNOW YET. I'M NOT EVEN SURE THE OP OF THIS THREAD KNOWS.ONLY DECU KNOWS FOR SURE.
>>28502966THIS person is correct!
>>28502904people are speculating that the protag may or may not be pinky or at least a part of pinkyin prior continuity faust here is kind of a.... twin of madokas made from some odd energy source that people arn't quite sure comes from. faust has accidently fused with madoka before in prior episodes of the quest before so them refuseing and going batshit witchy isn't completely out of the question.also every time this faust gets involved in anything really reality shits itself and gets all kinds of fucked up.so i think thats how it gets connected.
>>28502976when the quest OP agrees its awful thats exceptionally bad/
>>28503035It got so bad that the OP had rocks fall and everyone die.Its all /a/'s fault anyway.
>>28502966>/a/ IS FILLED WITH RETARDSWell, nobody could predict how the changes they made to the script would resonate with the rest of the script.>LATER ONI thought that was almost immediately.>CHRIST IT WAS AWFULSome of the retcons were caused by the HUEs the players forced, as Kyouko's underwear can attest.>how is it related to MGNQ It isn't. But this one apparently is.
>>28502966Is it too late to kill everyone, retcon this entire quest, restart it with /tg/ in control (while still retarded, less retarded than /a/ on it's best day), AND THEN have it connect to MGNQ?
>>28503054i kind of remember following that vaguely, cause i had to at least see what in the fuck was going on.then i regretted it.i also kind of remember that happened multiple times.
>>28503073What do you think this is.
>>28503096I assumed we skipped step one and then didn't retcon far enough back.
>>28503120We're retconning RIGHT NOW.Or did you not notice the LOL EVERYTHING IS FAKE revelation thing?
>>28503120lets just go with it because odds are highly likely the universe is about to explode with faust/homura leaving to the next one.
The world is dying. There’s nothing else left here. Nothing at all. The sky cracked. The ground began to break like glass.Where was everyone? At school.Where were they going to be? Probably in an endless black expanse in less than five seconds. “Homura!” you quickly clasp your arms around her. “There’s…” there was absolutely nothing that either of them could do. The world had fallen to pieces. What you wanted to protect, you could no longer protect. It was already being destroyed. “Turn the shield! Now!”You didn’t have to tell her twice. The dial spins.Your eyes close.Anbey stops talking. The world soon blasts into nothing.__________________________When the world’s a nightmare, it’s a nightmare. When it’s a dream, it’s a dream. The mystery to this world was never found. The only thing that remained of the lost world was the long-haired girl that simply sighed in self-derision.“I suppose we’re going to have to do it again, aren’t we?”END OF EPISODE 1
>Wake up>Get on the PC>End of Episode 1Welp
>>28503158whelp rocks fell, and everyone died.time to watch as faust ends up running around in the 9th and somehow completely missing the warmaster.
>>28503153>>28503158Behold, a wizard.
>>28503194BEWARE, HIS POWWWWAAAAAHHHHUNSPEAKABLE POWERR!
>>28503215MUH POWAHITS OVERWHELMING
>>28503192<Midori> Oh hey, Chiaki, I wanted to introduce you to someone I met while running around with Kyoko last week!<Chiaki> Oh?<Midori> Faust, you can come in now!<Chiaki> what<Faust> Hello, miss Warmas-wait, Homura?!<Chiaki> WHAT
>>28503256then faust proceeds to get kneecappedand pinky has no clue what in the fuck is going on anymore
>>28503284Kneecapped and interrogated."WHO IS AKEMI HOMURA""WHAT IS YOUR CONNECTION TO THE BLESSED LADY""WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON"She loses another limb joint for every question not answered to Chiaki's satisfaction.
>>28503298reminder chiaki doesn't actually do that shit as muchbut i'd bet shed be a bit careful wondering how in the everliving fuck pink got out of the shield.
>>28503147No, actually, I didn't. I thought the retcon happened in the beginning because I vaguely remember Homura saying she was going to reset everything once or twice from the old quest, and we just picked up from one of those points. Thinking there was too much backstory I wasn't ever going to touch again, I then just skimmed this thread, which lead to making an ass out of myself.tl;dr: I'm a cunt that didn't pay attention and didn't want to re-read magia to learn where the fuck we might be.
>>28503327Huh.Well, s'coo. No biggie.
>>28503315>reminder chiaki doesn't actually do that shit as muchThats never stopped anyone from joking about it.
>>28503367oh i agree, and i do believe she'd actually kneecap her just out of the chance to do so, but i think the blowing limbs off from there she'd stop, because she has subordinates to do that for her.you see, shes "classy" now so she doesn't need to do the dirty work herself now.
>>28503385"Midori.""Y-yes...?""Show her...the TONGUE THING."
>>28503256[X] Grab Pinky[X] Activate Shield[X] WHAT IN THE EVERLOVING FUCK IS GOING ON?!!!oneone11!
>>28503493Its just ten minutes of everyone standing there, screaming WHAT at each other for different reasons
>>28503503143 pinkies, various shades of homura and one Malal just sitting there rubbing her hands together going "Just as planned"
>>28503521Also one (1) Kharn, trying to get them all into a bed with her.
>>28503602>implying kharn didn't pick up literally all her bad habits from malal
>>28503602no, she's too busy hitting on the two Mamis.
>>28503624>kharns entire goal in life is to duel wield mami>implying that isn't the most noble goal ever.
>>28503624<Kharn> HA HA! NOW THERE ARE TWO NEW MAMIS! TWO CHANCES FOR ME TO SUCCEED WHERE I HAD ONCE FALTERED!<Malal> There's no reason to think it'd go any differe-there she goes...and here she comes. How'd it go?<Kharn> ...I need a huuuuuug ;_;<Malal> There, there. There, there.
>>28503624Meanwhile, under some stairs:Ekatarina and Deep-Throat sit playing Pokemon.
>>28503662Kharn is moe.
Meanwhile, Midori has FOUR Homus to choose from.
>>28503705again.Fortunately she's a Chiakisexual now.
>>28503705Wait, four?Chiaki (noir), Homulucifer (noir), Homura (magia)...Who's the fourth?
>>28503863Homura (noir)We haven't seen her yet, but Decu did confirm she's around.It's -possible- she's the same as Chiaki, but not actually confirmed.
>>28503883I'm like 90% sure that Chiaki is Noir Homura. Just for the thematic parallels with Malal.
>>28503883I thought he was talking about Homulucifer when he said that.
Gilliam Yaeger @GilliamYaeger 21m@ThatOneBard 1. How did you think it would end? 2. NEXT THREAD WHEN----------Shinobu @ThatOneBard 12m@GilliamYaeger 1) More slaughter. 2) Not sure!Guess we dodged a bullet there!
>>28503913Homucifer is definitely -not- Noirverse's native Homuhomu.
>>28503931Oh, right. the NATIVE one.Decu did say the native one was running around with universe-powers, right? that might be how I confused the two. (either that, or am I just pulling whatever shit is flying out of my ass at the moment.)
>>28503971>She has universe-related powers.Yep.I think he might mean native universe-related powers. Which means noir powers.And Chiaki has incredible alcohol imbibement/chain smoking powers.
>>28504007>And Chiaki has incredible alcohol imbibement/chain smoking powers.those come as standard with the soul gem.
>>28504097Yeah, but none do it as much as Chiaki does.Or did.
>>28503662What happens in the Shieldstays in the Shield.
>>28502152We'd like to believe so but THE FUTURE REFUSED TO CHANGE. Seriously, our meddling only made things worse. By playing at being the hero we became just another villain. >>28502085MGNQ is Magia fanfiction. Yea.
>>28503863Five, actually.Chiaki (Noir), Homura (Noir), Homucifer (Noir), Homura (Magia) and Moemura (Magia).Near the end of the first iteration of Magia, Mami and Kyouko are dead and the fight against Walpurgisnacht is in full swing. Suddenly TIME PARADOX, and we pick up a Kyouko, Mami, meguca Madoka and Moemura from Timeline 3, that is, right after they fight Sayaka's witch, but before Mami snaps and kills Kyouko before being killed by Madoka.Faust manages to talk them out of despairing, and they join the group.
>>28506993oh god, MGNQ is getting a Moemura?We need a pime taradox so we can get a Ekarina too, and have an awkwardness party with Moemure, Ekarina and Tomoko.
I archived the thread, seemed like a good idea at the time.
Is MC in Yuris with Mami or are they just good friends?
>>28508479It could go either way.
>>28508479She's in MAGICAL with Mami. Clearly.
>>28508479>>28508479Magia was — as per /a/ tradition — always more about crippling paranoia and rabid DESPAIR than fucking waifus.
>>28508755so since /a/ have waifu threads they don't focus so much on the waifus on quest and /tg/ since it have Shadow Run thread don't shadowrun that much into the quests?make sense to me
>>28508836…that makes a surprising amount of sense.It would also explain why /a/ can be so incredibly (disgustingly, according to QTG) vanilla in quests since they already got their rocks off somewhere else.
>>28508647>>28508755Tried to be. Failed.
>>28509193Why did she bounce off? I don't remember the reason.
>>28509347Mami was too busy being a magical girl, Faust vanishing and not to forget the fact that Mami may be STRAIGHT.
>>28509562>Mami>StraightI dont even
>>28509562>first spoilersDamn, even the MC got retconned?>second spoilersFucking heresy.
>>28509591She's straight in MGNQ, too.
>>28510074Nothing says she's not bi.
>>28509959Magia Rebuild goes into more detail!
>>28510417I just sort of singed it with the tags on the archive, hope I did alright.
>>28510074She WAS either straight or bi at the timeNothing says she didn't jump ship after because he was so badOr she just kept going both ways like apparently valnikov does
>>28508755>>28509193>>28509562> actually keeping the /u/boat in checkMy respect for /a/ and this QM just increased a bit.
>>28510546Don't give /a/ any credit, it was pretty much all the QM
>>28510561True, every time /a/ tried to launch the /u/boat the QM gave them despair instead.Or at least when the MC tried to /u/ it up. Other characters were free.
>>28510600I gave them the QB.
>>28510600Hmm, /tg/ would probably have sperged about railroading and dropped it...
>>28510618Our telekinetic QB launcher needs ammo, after all.>>28510627It's not railroading as much as it is punishment. Perhaps if they stopped trying to waifu so hard, the setting wouldn't have been so fucked up.But if there's something that defines /a/, is their single minded determination to get their waifu. And masochistic tendencies.
>>28510714>It's not railroading as much as it is punishment.I know. I'm just saying that /tg/ wouldn't have tolerated that at all. Since if there's one thing that defines /tg/ it's their inability to get the message or accept failure as being their own fault.
>>28510714Perhaps the same could be said of all boards.
>>28510741Being slapped seemed to do the trick in Fatal Streets. Everyone went "welp, we came on to her too hard. We better tone it down, boys"
>>28510889Even in quests that let you waifu (whether /u/ or not) that kind of matter-of-fact shut-downs of dumb, overaggressive come-ons should be mandatory - Golden Empire improved massively after players took the hint that maybe they should just cool it and stick to being friendly, for example (even if it took a remarkably long time for the then-/a/-expats to do so).
>>28510889Did it? I remember lots of WHY YOU GONNA BE THIS WAY QM?! posts.
>>28511031I've seen Golden Empire hovering around. Is it pretty good?
>>28511366>Is it pretty good?Very.
>>28511366I like it. It's not really a Madoka-based quest in the same way this/MGNQ is though, only uses the magic system (but modified). Also the voting for the first chapter and a bit is seriously terrible, as referred to above.
>>28511380>>28511394Alright, after I catch up on Magical Girl Noir, I'll give it a read.
>>28511721Enjoy, it's really nice.
