You are a Magical Girl, and your past is coming back to haunt you. Again.It's nothing new. Pinky, the Golden Weapons...all the shit you've been going through could be traced back to you and your bad decisions. The thing is, though, you don't remember making those decisions at the time, giving you that tissue-thin veneer of solace that whoever made those decisions weren't really YOU, and...you might have done things differently in their stead. So there's that.This time, though, you do. You remember with painful clarity that it was you who asked Misaka to help you retire Kirika. You remember that it was you who put the cute, brown-haired Russian behind the sights of the rifle that reduced the blood-crazed, Golden Weapon-wielding bitch to hamburger - a split second after you stuck her in the chest with a combat knife. It never occured to you that something like this would happen.It never occured to you that the girl whose entire face lit up in joy whenever you remembered her name could ever be identified by yet another Golden Weapon-wielding bitch as Kirika's murderer and thus get marked for murder herself. All because some white-haired bitch couldn't stomach the fact that her ex went fucking insane and needed to be put down like the rabid dog she became....No. No time for that now. You've got no time to waste on regrets, or thinking about what you should've done instead. You did what you could. You made the decision with what you had at the time. Pissing and moaning about it isn't going to do anything. It isn't going to save Misaka from dying in witchfire - a death that Haruka, one of the last remaining Prognosticators of the Ninth, had woken up screaming about.You just hope that this isn't the start of some sort of fucking trend.
>>33182127The room you're in is deathly silent as you lower Kumatora's smartphone from your ear, after Yuma's call abruptly ended in the middle of one of Haruka's more bloodcurdling screams. Everyone else looking to you to say something, to say anything, their faces showing expressions that range from skeptical curiosity to pale alarm. You don't notice them at the moment - you're too willing yourself to think clearly amid the panic rising in your chest and the anger coloring your vision red."...Chiaki-san?" Mami is the first to speak, her own face pale with concern. "What is it? What's going on? What did Yuma call about?""Murderface?" Sayaka asks, almost at the same time. "...No. It's not...she's not going after Misaka, is she?""...Kong?" Even Wendy seems to be perturbed, her dull copper eyes widening just the slightest bit. How do you react?Adjourn the meeting formally, request that another be set up at a later date. You have urgent matters to attend to. Then excuse yourself along with your retinue. ...No need to involve these cultists.Oriko just fucked herself, and you need all the help you can get. "I need to get somewhere fast.

>>33182201Mig is too slow. Might make a solid second choice if Pete is unavailable.Also, consider the possibility that this is a trap.Not that it makes any difference to what we're gonna do, But still, at least consider it.
>>33182136>[x]Oriko just fucked herself, and you need all the help you can get. "I need to get somewhere fast. Faster than humanly possible. I'll explain on the way, but I need to get there now."Unless they have better idea, we're pulling a MiG, so 2 people can go with us. I'd vote for Wendy (the red Culexus is her prey as well) and either Kyouko or Sayaka.
We can't ignore that this may be a distraction. Doubtful, but it's a possibility. I'd say Kumatora and Rhea escort Mami & Hanegawa back to the officio; there Mami can lockdown the office, organize reinforcements to pull our ass out of the fire, and can help Haruka down in the silent room. Hanegawa can take notes on professionalism.Sayaka and Kyoko are with us, unless one of them goes back to lead the rescue team. Wendy and co. are welcome to come along if they're still interested, but regardless we're going in head first and gutting everything in our way. Motorcycle are our best bet I think; not even sure how we'd even land a MiG in the city.As an aside, the best way to deal with what Midori did is call her Hanegawa for right now. That'll get her attention and let her know that that shit does not fly. Personally, I'd say her offense warrants her only being called Midori at home, and her losing public displays of affection rights, but that's just me.
I'm up to date, fucking finally.>>33182136>[x]Oriko just fucked herself, and you need all the help you can get. "I need to get somewhere fast. Faster than humanly possible. I'll explain on the way, but I need to get there now."

>>33182223>if Pete is unavailable.We don't have the beacon and Tiny Pete is probably already protecting Misaka.
Wait a fucking second, if I recall the final moments of the stadium fight corectly, we learned (other than that Wendy still has awesome butt) that she has access to some sort of teleport technology.
>>33182228Whatever happens, Midori stays here.Infact, get Mami to throw her into a silent room for us.She can mess with Chiaki, but no-one messes with the Warmaster on a job.
>>33182259That was fast.
>>33182245>Tiny Pete is probably already protecting MisakaThat wouldn't be an issue. Misaka is ranked higher than us according to Petes AI, so he wouldn't abandon her to come to us without her say-so.And obviously she's not going to send him to us if she actively requires his presence.But, she has Blade Wolf too, so...
>>33182269I also didn't change my tag. Teach me to come to threads mostly asleep.6 and 9 are not the same number, kids.
>>33182250>>33182228This. Sayaka would do the same. But Kyouko isn't that dumb anyway.
Super busy week so I haven't been able to draw anything. Only finished this drawing which was almost done before anyway. Here you go!
>>33182136OKAY THAT"S BETTER
>>33182283Just go sniff a line of catnip or something, that should get you up... or not.
People, let's not get our pitchforks for Oriko yet. We did promise Kirika and revenge cycles are stupid.Is anyone here following To the Stars?What did you think of the latest chapter?
>>33182300>let's not get our pitchforks for Oriko yetAhriman however, is fair game.
>>33182246Bodyslide tech is useless in this situation. It's not a free teleport, it's a mark/recall kind of thing.
>>33182289>those detailsMY DICK
>>33182300Of course.When we get then, we turn the shield and draw the pig sticker.
>>33182369job 1 we extract Misaka, THEN we crank the shield and obliterate everything.
>>33182228>>33182284>>33182250No, Midori comes with us. A Callidus might come in handy and we ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT to leave her with Wendy.
We still have 2 shield charges, right?
>>33182390>we ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT to leave her with Wendy.why not anon don't you trust Wendy?
>>33182228This would be a very childish reaction from Chiaki. Simply talking to her in private and explaining (like a mature person) to her why she should not act like that in professional settings, and then ordering her never to do so again should be sufficient.
>>33182390punishment needs to be applied immediately for effective training. And I suspect Wendy will be tagging along if we need a Callidus.
>>33182390Sort of agree. Definitely don't want to leave Midori alone with Oriko targeting everyone close to Chiaki. But Midori should definitely know, at least, that her lack of professionalism was noted. Calling her Hanegawa again in public might be a good wake up call for her.
>>33182422Given Midori's actions just now, it's harder to trust *her* with wendy.
>>33182403assuming Pinky keeps her end of the deal.
>>33182390Why? What's she going to do? Something that would make us think less of her as a person? Something that might make us take a second look at our relationship?Do you think they will kill each other?I expect her to act with a degree of responsibility and trust when our life is about to take a turn for the worst. This goes for Wendy as well.
>"Yeah, Midori, what you did wasn't the brightest idea. I mean, sure, it was hot and I'm not hiding that we're together, but doing it like that right there was a bit of a dick move. Wendy had to cope with dying, coming back to life and then the fact that I meanwhile managed to completly forget everything about her, even that fact she exists in the first place. So when we finally get to see each other face to face, you just rubbing it in that I'm with someone else now is a dick move, you see?">"S-sempai?">"So from relationship point of view, this should be the part where I bend you over my knee and paint your derriere the same shade of pink your face has when we kiss. But I got a feeling you wouldn't take it as a punishment.">"...">"Well, there's also the part that when I'm Warmaster on the job, I can't let my personal life interfere. It was quite sensitive negotiation and the other party didn't look favorably at what you did. Got that?"Just an bit of brainstorming ... too bad Chiaki will never get to actually talk that much.
>>33182440If she knows we have made contact with the three stooges, then she will probably be pissed.
>>33182426it's a seperation of role. When we're playing Warmaster, she needs to know that dat ass is off limits.Honestly it's likely to be as difficult on Clingy chiaki as Midori
>>33182457The problem isn't that she might already know - If she knew, we'd probably already know about it.The problem is what might happen if she finds out about it.
>>33182426Possibly the second part, but the first is warranted I feel. She's our aide but if we can't count on her to be professional during a diplomatic meeting, its more than appropriate to voice our displeasure. I cant believe we're the professional one in the relationship.
>>33182470Yeah. And thats why Chiaki should do what a warmaster should do. Clearly communicate with her subordinate and explain that how she acted was inapproriate.A warmaster should not start pulling some passive-aggressive crap and refuse to use her name or some such nonsense.
>>33182513I just assumed we were going to call her Hanegawa in business settings briefly to show her it ain't time to play around.
>>33182482She might just be waiting for us to activate the timestop so she can mess us up or somesuch.
>>33182429Thats kinda why I want her and mami back at the officio. It's the safest place I can think of, and there they can get a strike team together to get to us and Misaka
>>33182300I liked it, but I don't think this is the place to discuss it really.
>>33182485>I cant believe we're the professional one in the relationship.We're on the clock as Warmaster, meaning full-on timepiece-wearing-rubber-penis mode.
>>33182447>>33182429>>33182428>>33182431>>33182422I don't know what she is going to do. I don't know what Midori OR Wendy will be trying to do if we leave them alone. Since we have enough shit at our hands as it is, we might not want to take any risks in that direction, never-mind that Midori needs a good paddling for the shit she pulled.That said, Chiaki and Sayaka as MUSCLE and DIVERSION and Midori to slip in, get Misaka, get out. Since we know that she managed to do exactly that in Siberia with Kharn and ourselves.That I do not trust Wendy is beside the point, its because we know WHAT Midori and Sayaka can do.
>>33182513There is absolutely nothing passive about the aggression I intend to use.
>>33182513This. It was her first "offense", and it was basically her first time she was taken along on this kind of Warmaster stuff.We just need to explain to her that what she did was inapropriate and WHY it was inapropriate.
>>33182578Exactly losing our shit over her first screw up in an really emotional situation is just stupid.
>>33182513>A warmaster should not start pulling some passive-aggressive crap and refuse to use her name or some such nonsense.Given that they're all Japanese, and using Japanese naming conventions, an adjustment of the way her name is used is actually a fairly nonagressive way of indicating displeasure with an individual.It seems a lot harsher than it actually is to westerners.
>>33182566We're talking full on homunatrix.>>33182578>We just need to explain to her thatThat's where I'm going with this. I'm just taking the fun diversion where we take the relationship pants back for a while.
Moving the subject a bit. How many here still support trying to rescue Oriko from Ahriman? I find myself curious about that.
>>33182604>We're talking full on homunatrix.
>>33182623For me it depends on Misaka's survival.
>>33182623Yes, I'd like Kirika to have a good ending. The last conversation we had with her was nice.
>>33182623We promised Kirika that we would give her a chance.The promise was for giving Oriko a chance, not that we would actually succeed. Even Kirika was doubtful of that.So, I support trying, but I won't be too bummed if we fail.
>>33182623Same plan, depends on how things play out.
>>33182470They're both clingy, so they can cling to each other.
>>33182623Pretty much this>>33182639
>>33182623Assuming Misaka lives through this, I'm willing to support the rescue plan.If she doesn't, going full Morderface on Oriko's ass will be the only acceptable choice both IC and OOC.
>>33182623I'm still on board with this plan
>>33182651all them cranes, man
>>33182300Thanks for the heads-up on that update, I missed it up till now.
It is time to purge the those who hurt little sister!!
>>33182666Witching out would probably be more appropriate actually.
>>33182623If she's salvageable, I want to save her. Put her under watch and have QB to run some tests on her. Need more info on GWs corrupting non-MGs.Otherwise, we kill her.
I feel it's less passive aggressive and more akin to a mother calling there child by their full name. It's an audible warning that she's in serious trouble later.As for Oriko, I'm fine with trying but she's not getting mor3 than on3 chance at it before we start the violence.
>>33182719I imagine violence is probably going to be inevitable no matter which way we proceed with Orika.All we can really try and do is funnel it in the direction of the deserving.
>>33182738Such as burny. Fuck her.
>>33182713No, not really. Losing Misaka would hurt Chiaki a lot but there's still couple other people she cares for so she would force herself to pull through.
I don't think Chiaki would ever be able to face Souji again if something happened to Misaka.
>>33182688I think I'll go back and color that one later this month, when I'll finally have some vacations. Shouldn't take too long, and adding color and transparency to it might be pretty cool
>>33182759It would make the call to them about the call about Kharn's trophies we sent over awkward. Er.We still need to do that, by the way.
>>33182767That's up to you, both new drawing and colorings of the older ones are most welcome.
>>33182792I thought we already sent them back.
>>33182828We did. We just never got their reactions about recieving them.
>>33182828We did (save for Wendy's). We just didn't talk since.
>>33182849Thanks for the clarifications anons.
>>33182828We did.And by me, I mean we made Kumatora do it.Girl has earned her promotion.
>>33182861She gets Wendy's panties as a promotion.
>>33182884Cutest and best.
>>33182884Why're all the BRSes so based? Dead Master meguca when?
>>33182884>all dat qtHere have a coobs
>>33182921There's already a golden scythe. In fact, there's already two of them. Both used by the same person.
>>33182921That was confirmed to be a thing from the Siberia arc.
>>33182127>[x]Get a ride.
>>33182967Can they fold together into one big scythe?I bet they don't! Risa is clearly superior!
>>33182150 >>33182157 >>33182160 >>33182165You nod at Sayaka, while handing Kumatora her smartphone back. Oriko's gone and fucked herself, yeah.The confirmation sends a ripple of shock throughout the room, one that's much more clearly felt by your retinue - your best friend, especially. "N-no, Oriko wouldn't...! Murderface!" Kyoko stammers, her one eye widening in panic. In fear. "M-Murderface, Oriko knows Misaka, she loves that little kid, there's no way she'd go after her just because--""She would," Sayaka says hollowly, coldly. "Anyone who wants payback would. It makes perfect sense - you don't just go after the one responsible, you go after everyone else involved." She shakes her head. "Misaka was the triggerman. Logical target. We just didn't think she'd...actually go through with it. Don't think you did either, Murderface."No. No you didn't, and that admission alone makes you want to murder something in the face. Not just because THIS is happening, but because it had the ability to happen in the first place. You should've immediately gone and secured everyone involved in Kirika's murder, not just the targets you thought Oriko would go after just to mess with your head. A small part of you wonders if you could've avoided this by killing Oriko too, right after she slapped you. Iori would've seen you murder someone in front of her in cold blood, and you'd probably would've made an enemy of Kyoko for life, but...Christ, quit it with this bullshit! You don't much time! You grit your teeth, before addressing the entire room - telling them about what you need: a way to get to Misaka, as fast as humanly possible. ...No, even faster than that.The room is silent for just a few moments, before Wendy steps forward. "...Schpeltiger's right outside. It's fast enough to break the land speed record if we punch it." She pauses for a moment, seemingly hesitating. "...Can only take one passenger, though. Maybe two, but that's already pushing it."[1/2]
>>33182986>Not KONG! >Not GRAB MY BUTT! >Not ~First Degree Murder!~Ya blew it!
>>33182986>Kong grab my -mumble mumble->Dammit, Kong, I said my broom, not my bum!>Geez, nevermind, just hold still already.
>>33183004Schpeltiger? That's...wait, that's the bike Malal used, right? Back at Varrigan. Yeah. You remember it.You glance at Mami for approval, and she nods. "Wendy is a capable biker, and Schpeltiger's faster than anything we have at the Officio. I daresay she'd be able to get you to Misaka quickly enough, barring teleportation, and even that's unreliable." ...Right. Okay. That's good. That may just be what you need.What do you do?Take the Schpeltiger with Wendy and another passenger.Kindly pass on the offer. You have other ideas.

>>33183027I kinda want to take both Wendy and Midori, just for the off chance that they might bond, but also because they both know about/have met pinky. So if we need to pull them to a time stop, things should not go out of control.

I see the Wendy samefagging is going strong.. You can tell when they are samefagging by how their make little changes like leaving [x] out or using X instead or add a new sentence for no reason so the system doesnt flag it as the same reply.
>>33183027[x] ...barring teleportation ? how unreliable are we talking about here ? could we teleport the Schpeltiger with us ?
>>33183083Fiery explosive entry into a explosives and munitions warehouse is not the most prudent of plans.
>>33183027Can't we call misaka's pet terminator, get inside then teleport it back? She rode in it in Siberia.
>>33183027>[x]Take the Schpeltiger with Wendy and another passenger.Take Kyoko. It's probably better for her psyche if she's personally involved in solving this situation with Oriko.

>Burgerbutt action timeAww yis
>>33183188A plane can dodge in 3 dimensions though, making it harder to hit.
>>33183163On one hand flying at low altitude to break LOS will mean slower airspeed, on that other hand, that's still faster than a bike, especially since we don't need to follow roads.
>>33183180See >>33183134Dont pretend to be stupid please. If it wasnt samefaggotery people would actually be able to make the same post over and over again.If you try to post the same text however, 4chan prevents you from doing it, so the easiest way to avoid it is change minor things in that post.
>>33183190I like this idea.
>>33183178if it's an option, I heartily endorse Tiny Pete.I honestly can't remember what the state of play is with his beacon though. Last thing I remember, sayaka had it.Order of preference:(1) Tiny Pete(2) Schpelltiger(3) Sayakar>>33183181she may be able to see it coming, but because it's ground based it's not basically a huge sitting duck while it closes the distance.
>>33183190How many people here know how to fly a mig?
>>33183181No, but terrain offers protection.TSFs stay on the ground for this reason.
>Midorifags getting butt hurt that best girl's getting screen timekek
>>33183216Jesus...I can only say that I was the first you quoted, and that's it. The rest may be same-fagging, but I wasn't.
>>33183222Are we even going to fit in his cockpit? I like it thought.
>>33183027I can't choose, why is this so difficult?
>>33183154This is my first thread and I'm samefagging now...whatever.
>>331832271. Its a dense city.2. Planes can dodge in 3 dimensions3. We have no reason to assume that they will expect us via plane nor that they have a way to intercept us anymore than we have reason to think that they will intercept us via bike.Your argument is flawed.
>>33183208Assuming we aren't the only one that can fly a MIG. We grabbed more than one if I remember correctly.
Uh, peoples, where are we going to land the MiG ? You can't park it easily...
>>33183211The problem is landing in a crowded city without crashing. Unless we're fine slamming it into some buildings or our weapons depot, we'll blow a lot of time trying to set down.
>>33183216Or instead of samefagging, it's a lot of people who like to provide their commentary at the same time as their votes. Also, the first option implies it'd probably be prudent to figure out who we want to bring, so it strikes me as a good point for a little write-in anyway.
>>33183222>Not posting the fastest versionhttp://gifsound.com/?gif=manga.clone-army.org/gallery/mgnq/SAYAKAR-DRIIIFT_2_small.gif&v=F3KOnv9MVNY&s=28
>>331832837/11 style.We crash it into something. Obviously before we do that we jump out of it. Lets use our superhuman perks from time to time.
>>33183283Braids could presumably stop it via telekinesis.
>>33183283Parking is unnecessary.Telekinetic fields allow for complete vertical take-off and landing.
>>33183283Who said anything about landing it?>Chiaki Matsuda had to fly her mig really fast back to the officio but Chiaki Matsudas fuel ran out. Chiaki Matsuda jumped fast out of the mig and landed on big metal hands.
>>33183287MiG-21s are scrapyard tier in terms of fighter jets, just roll inverted and jump out.
>>33183270>This is my first thread and I'm samefagging now...whatever..........I think I better start building up a bigger reaction image folder, I have nothing quite expressive enough to be an appropriate response to that guy's post.
>>33183287>The problem is landing in a crowded city without crashingWe don't need to land, or did you forget that telekinesis let's us just stop the plane wherever we want?
>>33183181Well, given that it used to be Malal's bike, I wouldn't be all that surprised if it was.
>>33183216>If you try to post the same text however, 4chan prevents you from doing it, so the easiest way to avoid it is change minor things in that post.Why even use that excuse? The ultimate, "You're samefagging." Argument is the use of proxy.Bottom line though, is that you can't prove shit. All you can do is throw around accusations when something you don't like is happening. That's a two way street. What if everyone decided to go with w/e idea you had? Still samefagging? Fuck off.
>>33183330We could use it also to provide ground support like the jets in black ops 2 (just sayin)
>all this relying on the stoogesBecause Pinky totally isn't going to catch us with her favorite sacrifice-maker
>>33183271>1. Its a dense city.Which we have to fly over>2. Planes can dodge in 3 dimensionsPlanes are shit at avoiding anything, that's why stealth is important. Oriko is way more dangerous to aircraft than any missile.>3. We have no reason to assume that they will expect us via plane nor that they have a way to intercept us anymore than we have reason to think that they will intercept us via bike.We have every reason to expect they expect everything because futurevision. If they see the bike coming, it's up to how overpowered the golden staff really is and if it can shoot through a all the buildings in a dense metropolitan area
>>331833087/11 style.you mean 9/11?
>>33183335Actually no, the bike belonged to Nicole Touchdown first, Malal just liked to use it because she was a biker and Nicole was a good friend of hers, still wont be surprised if it IS future sight proof.
>>33183318>Mig>not just stuffing it back in the shieldWaste not, want not.
>>33183363Nah man, we're going full KONBINI on Oriko's ass.
>>33183347>black ops 2Of all the things you could mention, you chose that as an example? Instead of like, real life?
>>33183368IIRC, Malal actually built it originally.I got the impression that Nicole customised it rather extensively though.Well, the first Schpelltiger, at least.
>>33183389Stuffing bigger things into the shield takes extra time. We don't have that now.
>>33183409Black Ops 2 is pretty realistic.
>>33183409Well we could hover it like the Harrier with Telekinesis.And I said I was just saying.
>>33183409>>33183421Let's not have that discussion.
>>33183362If they know that we're coming because of futurevision, then what's to prevent them from setting up ambushes and blocking off streets?In fact, why assume that it's only the Culexus and Oriko at Misaka's warehouse?Besides the fact that the Culexus herself is capable of teleporting in herself and then teleporting out, without Ahriman being in danger at all, and the Prophet's cultists all prepared to slow us down if we go by bike.
>>33183421was that the one where you could somersault tanks onto buildings?
>>33183435>hover>easy target>need to rotate on an axis and point nose at target to shoot because everything is boresight fixedYou might as well pull out a FAB-250 and throw it at them instead.
>>33183484>what's to prevent them from setting up ambushes and blocking off streetsabsolutely nothing.
>>33183517Then how is the bike any better than the MiG, when it presents just as many opportunities for being slowed down or ambushed?
>>33183534For one, less chance of turning into a greasy splatter if we're attacked several hundred feet off the ground.
>>33183488I think that's Battlefield...
>>33183491You might be onto something anonLets throw tanks at oriko till she stops moving!
>>33183484A road ambush is a fight we can at least win. Going by plane, if Oriko is -anywhere- in the city, is suicide. There's no way to avoid or block those beams. The damage is way too high to be tanked either, if I'm remembering Ahriman correctly.
>>33183560Yeah, instead we can into a greasy skid mark.
>>33183534focussed fire.If we take the mig, they can all just stay in one place and mass fire on us.If we take the bike and they don't know for sure which road we'll take, they have to cover both roads - they can only fire on us with a fraction of their full firepower at any time.
>>33183589>they don't know for sure which road we'll takeWhy would they not know that if they've got futuresight?
>>33183580Maybe I'm still half-asleep but I think Tank Anon is on to something with this plan, nya.
>>33183607>tanks>not a single steamrollerDo you even ZA WARUDU!?
>>33183595because it's an art, not a science.
>>33183619You can put Deff Rolla's on tonks
>>33183047 >>33183049 >>33183052 >>33183062You nod. You'll be taking Schpeltiger with Wendy, and another passenger. You pondered about just taking one of your MiGs and blasting towards Misaka's warehouse at full speed, but you have a sickening feeling that Oriko's foreseen you doing that, too. And her blasting you out of the sky would just be a foregone conclusion by then....Not that taking a bike's any safer, really, but at least you'll have the terrain to duck and swerve behind for cover."...Fine." Wendy nods, before standing up and making for the door that she'd just burst through only moments earlier. "I'll go ahead, get Schpeltiger warmed up and ready for us. Pick whoever's coming with, but don't take too fucking long." She narrows her eyes at Midori on her way out, with your Callidus shooting back a glare of her own.Right. Yeah. Okay.You take a deep breath - a mostly futile effort to slow your racing heartbeat - and look at your retinue.Who do you take with you on Schpeltiger? You can only take one with you, the rest will most likely catch up while you're wading knee-deep in crazy Prophet worshiper blood.MidoriSayakaKyokoReaKumatoraNo one.
How would we get the MiG in the air anyway? We used the deck of the platform as a runway from that last mission. How do we get going fast enough to generate enough lift to clear buildings? We really should look into stealing something with VTOL capabilities.
>>33183718[x]SayakaWhat we need right now is muscle. Firm, delicious muscle...
>>33183718As funny as Midori should be, let's just take Kyouko. She's a really good all-around magical girl, and Sayaka's a good choice to leave in charge of everyone else.[x]Kyouko
>>33183718>[x]SayakaWendy is also a Callidus; she can grab Misaka and get out while Chiaki and Sayaka play distraction.
>>33183718Sayaka. She was there when we took down Kirika. Let's let it come full circle.
>>33183761>>33183748I agree that Kyoko is the more balanced option, but given that Sayaka was also at Kirika's retirement, wouldn't Sayaka make for a better distraction so that Misaka can be rescued?
>>33183718>ReaWe can pull melee duty if we gotta, but we can't do that and provide fire support at the same time. We can, however, arm the fuck out of her from the shield.Plus, she's light, shouldn't take up too much space.
>>33183718>[x]SayakaSeems to be the most logical approach.Anyone picking Midori would only want 'interesting' shit to happen.
>>33183718>[ x ] MAMIAt least I will not be said if she dies.
>>33183607I think we should throw Little Baby's Ice Cream at her until she eats her own head.
>>33183718>[X]ReaKinda worried Sayaka will witch out if we bring her, considering what happened on our last Sayaka&Kyouko mission.
>>33183811I'd rather Sayaka and Kyoko both follow as close as they can.
>>33183718>[x] Kyouko Sayaka is cool, but there's nothing better than fighting back to back with our bff
>>33183718>[X]KumatoraI really want to spend some time with the best Kohai even thou I know that Sayaka or Kyoko are better chooses
>>33183796>we can't do that and provide fire support at the same timeWe have Yuu equipped.
>>33183718[X] ReaMeeting got done just in time to vote! I hope...
And let's get Mami back to the office so she can take care of Haruka and free up Yuma. Because if Red is there with Oriko, I feel we're going to need some hot Culex on Culex action to settle that particular loose end.
>>33183718[X] SayakaTime to stomp on some necks.
>>33183718[x]ReaBarely takes any room.
>>33183857and for some reason my name keeps despairing
>>33183859GET EQUIPPED WITHVINDICARE RANK LEADER
>>33183718>No one.Now is the perfect time for alone time!Just kidding>[x]Sayaka
G-guys, please vote for Rea. I like her...!
>>33183718[x]ReaBut only because Hat asked.
>>33183951Dammit hat, we can't take risks.
>>33183968We need to establish an elite MG squad whose uniform will be maid outfits only.
>>33184001The Cleanup CrewFor sweeping up the mess
Picking Sayaka is probably a good choice since we won't be leaving her with Amber.
>>33184001Hrm... Guess I could do that Maid Costume Midori that I'd been meaning to do for a while now...
>>33183951That's why we're not getting her killed her here, Hat. With all due respect for the little Vindicare, Blueberry is significantly more durable.
>>33184023He said elite, Hatnot fat
>>33184014Sabotaging Decu's favorite ship, huh?
>>33184031Top fuckin kek
>>33184031I'm sorry, my brain only parsed the maid costume comment. What was that again?
>>33183973so why the fuck did most of you vote for Sayaka then?
>>33184052Just getting my Midori bullying in for this thread, nyaPlease continue with the maid outfit and change my mind
>>33184054Because she's the most capable, has the best thought process and can tank hits out of anyone in the room.
>>33184054To sink Decu's favorite ship obviously.Or because she's got an extremely good stat spread and is very durable.
>>33184079Except we are probably against the red culexus, which she probably can't tank hits from.
>>33183951I'm sorry, Hat, I just wanted something different
>>33184116That's silly, fire only stops regeneration on trolls and hydras, and Sayaka isn't either of those, right?
>>33184054RULES OF NATURE
>>33184054To open up the apple route
>>33184116As if anyone else could've.
>>33184134>Sayaka gets set on fire by Red Culexus>her face when
Can we all pretty much agree that Sayaka deserves to witch out?
>>33184054Because vroom vroom
>>33184186Kyouko has been shown to be resistant to anti-magic. She hung out with Omegon and has mind link and shit.
>>33184222She may be resistant to anti-magic, but she's not resistant to fucking fire.Also, if Oriko were there there's a risk of Kyouko to have her emotions get the best of her.
>>33184214But why? She's in a stable (ish) relationship, becoming less of a bitch, and isn't hung up on Mr. violin.Also, she cut a metal gear in half.
Sayaka is loveSayaka is lifeSayaka is huge
>>33184274I want to run my hands all over her body.And her cupcake
Kyoko would have helped with Oriko. And is Chiaki carrying Kirika?
>>33184259Kyouko is pretty good at setting people on fire, one would think that knowing how to do that makes one able to better avoid getting set on fire herself.
>>33184406Plus, she has a red coloring scheme and reddish hair. That could mean that she has about 5-10% inherent fire resistance due to thematic bonuses, right?
>>33184315Kyoko pls Amber pls
>>33184373She might've. More likely she would have had to watch two of her friends try and gut each other, or will have to end Oriko herself. As for Kirika, she'd probably show up when we rack the shield. You know how these golden weapons are.
>>33184433Of course not, that just means she goes faster. Everyone knows that.
>>33184274Nice! Tanky Sayaka is very good.
>>33184406because knowing how to perforate someone with bullets makes you bullet-proof?
>>331844823 times faster to be exact
>>33184482What is Kyouko's top speed?
>>33184512Well, if you get formal training to use guns in a combat setting, they usually try to include ways in which to avoid getting shot by enemy bullets. So I guess that's a kinda sorta yes?
>>33184534Probably about the same as Sayaka's.
>>33184534Terminal Velocity with parachute undeployed.
>>331845341000 calories per hour.
>>331845343xfast as a normal jackoffSayaka is twice as powerful and lucky, though, and that's important
Probably should tell Mami to watch out in case this is a two-pronged attack. After all we already knew she was in danger. No exact time for death was given.
>>33184611As a heartless metagaming bastard, it'd be seriously to our advantage if Mami died here, at the hands of Oriko's goons.Every officio would join us to hunt them, and we wouldn't have to deal with her manipulation and lying antics anymore.Christ, does nobody remember that she warned Kirilia we were coming, and almost got us killed? There's no way she was naive enough to think Kirilia would run away scared.
>>33184703There'd also be a ton of girls around the world that witch out from despair.
>>33184684Eh, just saying "fat" over and over again doesn't even count as bullying nor is it reason to get defensive. True bullying is an art form
>>33184591Who drew this? This is pretty awesome.
>>33184755Haaat don't point out the low-hanging fruiiiitNow I need to think of real reasons to make fun of MIdori.Like her being clingy and possessive with terrible impulse-control and an almost-baseless jealous streak that implies some serious insecurities, nya.Still loved that scene though
>>33184769That is @grasblade, who drew the art for the hairstyles back in Thread 100 and several other thread art pieces here and there
>>33184755When will you give us MayuXMido, Hat?When?
>>33184591Oh gods.Kyouko for warmaster
>>33184794And she's also fat!
>>33184735Well, better that happen now than in the middle of some massive crisis, and best that someone else draw the anger of the world upon themselves.I'm convinced she's going to need to die, potentially by our hand after a betrayal she can't talk us out of noticing, because that would be HIGH DRAMA, and Dec's into that.That's not what I want. I want this dealt with efficiently and cleanly, without our grubby fingerprints all over it.Also, for what it's worth, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne features the betrayal of the main character by an arms dealer. Someone with lots of guns.
>>33184852But Misaka is our arms dealer.
>>33184884Stop being stupid. He means Mami.
>>33184884No, that's Pinky.
>>33184920But Misaka is our arms dealer! THIS IS ALL A TRAP!
>>33183740 >>33183744 >>33183749 >>33183750You make your decision quickly, easily. You'll be taking Sayaka with you. Mami can prep the others for immediately-deployable reinforcements and evac the moment you ask for it."Warmaster." Both Eversor and Vindicare salute you at the same time, professionally, perfectly in unison. Kyoko awkwardly follows suit a moment later, seemingly still poleaxed at this turn of events. You don't blame her - Oriko was one of her best friends, after all. It must've been pure torture to be in a room where the fate of your best friend is being discussed by people who have due reason to kill her.At the corner of your eye, you see Midori's hopeful, expectant face fall in disappointment at your decision. Her head hanging low, her gaze locking onto her shoes, as if sulking about not being picked....What's gotten into her? You shake your head here, making a mental note to talk to her in private later. What she did while Wendy was talking earlier..."Wait!" Kyoko bursts forward, one hand grabbing your arm as you make for the door that Wendy had just gone through moments ago. "I..I know Misaka's in danger, a-and there's nothing worse than that, but what about...everything, earlier? What you guys talked about?" Her one good eye looks at you and then at Sayaka in turn. "That stuff about tryin' to get through to Oriko? About her bein' brainwashed with the Golden Weapon?"Sayaka frowns. "Kyoko, this isn't the time--""I-I know! I'm sorry! But I gotta ask!" You nod at Sayaka, who simply shrugs, before leaning forward and placing a quick, chaste kiss on Kyoko's cheek. Your Equerry murmuring something to the red-haired Eversor underneath her breath, something you don't hear, before she herself goes on ahead without you. Cape billowing out behind her as she strides through the door.[1/2]
>>33184980You turn back to Kyoko. It's...well, you're still going to try to get through to Oriko, you tell her. That's still your plan, and you're going to go ahead with it. You did promise, and so that's what you'll do. But...well, that was before you found out she's actually capable of going after someone like Misaka. ...Even you, with your own skewed brand of morality, doubt that you're capable of the same thing.You're going to do your best, but if it comes to it, you'll do what needs to be done.What would Kyoko herself do in your stead, anyway? If she was Warmaster?"..." Your best friend is silent, her one crimson eye staring hard and deep into yours - and it's here that she lets out a sigh, her shoulders drooping. "...I'd, I'd do...what needs to be done, too."You nod, and give your best friend a hug of your own. It'll be fine, you promise her. One way or another, you're going to get Oriko out of this mess."...Thanks, Murderface." Kyoko sniffs. "I'll...make sure to watch over Midorin for ya, while you're gone. In case Oriko to pull anything with her, too. Um..." She glances towards the door Sayaka just left from, as if making sure her girlfriend is well out of earshot. "Could you, um..."You give her a smile. Yeah, of course. You'll keep an eye out for her girlfriend too, but it's probably going to be the other way around."Hah!" Kyoko guffaws for what seems like the first time today, giving you a slap on the back that feels like it just jostled your kidneys loose. "Stop sellin' yourself short, you're our Warmaster now! Act the bit!"Yeah, yeah.You finally make to leave, when--"Chiaki-sempai!"You turn to look at Midori, your hand already on the doorknob. The green-haired Callidus still looking a bit sulky, a bit out-of-sorts, with her cheeks nearly as red as her eyes."Please take care! And I'm...I'm sorry about earlier...!"How do you respond?Leave without a word."We'll talk later.""I'll try to."

Holy shit, I finally caught a thread that's actually running. There's something very important I need to ask everyone here:HAVE YOU EVER SEEN NECO AND HAT POSTING AT THE SAME TIME?
>>33185367Yes. Calm down.
>>33185367I'm not NECO!
>>33185367Yes. Besides, you should know that Hat is physically not capable of bullying. The last attempt ended up with something along the lines of "Alright, geez, I'm gonna draw more stuff, that will show you!"
>>33185404That's exactly what that fucking cat would say.
>>33185367We already know that Cooldown is NECO. Keep up with the rest of the class, son.
>>33185406Hat should bully people more often then.
>>33185367That's a silly implication you have there, anon
>>33185441We're not us?
>>33185476AAAA YOU'RE FREAKING ME OUT
>>33185367What, don't you know? Everyone that works on the writeups and draws for the quest are actually Decu himself.
>>33184920Holy shit, that would actually make sense.A witch was in Mami's apartment with no indication on how she got hereThen we get sent on an escort mission with Kilgore who conveniently has a golden weapon while Mami is second-in-commandThen Mami successfully turns us into a watch-wearing dildo Warmaster and we get shipped off to Siberia, and stuff of various intensity happensKeep in mind that we don't know what Mami was doing or where she was going most of the time, hell, she could have made us Warmaster just so that she could have more free timeThen we get two warnings about her, from Malal who just happens to me a medukameguca of this timeline and our resident punmaster who has a 400 thousand points bounty on Mumi explicitly tells us that her scores are based on a number of factors, not just on her whimLast, but not least, Whisky pancakes. Truly worse than Hitler.I say Mami's either dating Ahriman or she's a Mumi from one of these timelines of suffering who wants to slap Faust a couple of hundreds times.
>>33185524Decu has DID?
>>33185556Decu is Yasu.
>>33185527It would amuse me to no end if this entire time Mami was a red herring to throw us all off and someone else was pulling the strings.I doubt that's the case, but still.
Mami is pretty screwed up. How messed up do you have to be to give lap pillows to prisoners of war?
>>33185569Now say it in Red.
Back on wifi so I'll try uploading this again: the MayuMido drawing I'm working on right now
>>33185527Honestly, I've been extremely suspicious of her ever since she warned Kirika we were going to retire her.That could easily have gotten us killed, and it almost did.Considering that Malal warned us about her in the diary, and how dangerous our axe lady thinks she is, we have plenty of reasons in character to be suspicious, but she makes pancakes and smiles, and suddenly we don't care. She's also in a position to control all the info going through our Officio.Fuck. She's drugging us with pancakes and the smiles are a vector for magical mind control.(If we count OOC information, Kyuubey may also be being drugged with the pancakes, and Mami quest suggests she has a golden weapon, which raises the question of why she hasn't turned it over to the vault yet.)TL:DR - Be suspicious of Mami. Those who act 'for the greater good' are capable of the most inhuman acts of all.
>>33185618>How messed up do you have to be to give lap pillows to prisoners of war?Just the tiniest little bit.It's not like Geneva Conventions apply on Megucas.
>>33185527>>33185659There's only one way for this to end.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVi_fs2oz3E
>>33185659you know she DOES feed us food and drink constantly, my shadowruns are high enough to think shes drugging us...
>>33185659>and Mami quest suggests she has a golden weaponShe threw it away though.Fuck, and now I'm imagining Mami speaking DEAREST OF ALL MY FRIENDS in a russian accent.
>>33185404Exactly what NECO would sayI'M ONTO YOU, FUCKING CAT
>>33185618>>33185683It seems to be our most effective interrogation method yet, though.And not like we have any room to talk after we basically got our prisoner drunk and molested her, then hired her.
>>33185696Those things tend to pop up when you don't want them to.

>>33185643why does he need to say that?is there something special about RED~?

>>33185746YOUR RESISTANCE ONLY MAKES ME STRONGER NYA
>>33185659The road to hell is paved with deliciousness.
>>33185794you mean likeGORGEOUSDELICIOUSDECULTURE?
>>33185696Exactly what I was implying.
>>33185760I really don't have anything to say to that so here's a Midori daki sketch that I need to clean up some time
>>33185659Do we know for sure that Malal was the one that wrote all the diary entries?
>>33185659One small nitpick: "Tomoe Mami will not act for the greater good. She will act in the interests of the greatest 'kindness'."
>>33185861No,it is implied that they are from different people all across this timeline.
>>33185889"The kindness of death"? "Preserving the status quo" count as kindness too.
>>33185713Fucking cat I swear to god
>>33185861I'm not sure they were really written to begin with. Haven't we lost our phone and the diary app mysteriously appeared again?It might just be part of Malal's bandaid job she did on our memory.
>>33185963We never did confirm if anyone else can see our Diary app or entries. They really might be nothing but implanted memories made to appear in our perception as an app on our phone.
>>33185984>They really might be nothing but implanted memories made to appear in our perception as an app on our phone.Now that's just crazy talk, anon
>>33185984Didn't NECO confirm the existence of the diary app however along ago when we interrogated her?
>>33185963>>33185984Wait, didn't Neco mess with our phone and unlocked the rest of the first set of entries?
>>33185984How can the diary app be realIf our eyes aren't real?This entire thing is just a barrier. We already lost. We never left Siberia.
>>33186007>>33186015NECO was dead all along, Sayaka talking with her was Sayaka being delusional and unable to cope.
>>33186007Yes she provided some passwords for us to unlock the first set of entries.by the way have we tried ORIKO in the app?
>>33186025We never left saved Iori, we're still trapped by Midori. Everything since then was just her attempt at mindbreaking us to worship her.And it worked.
>>33186058We are in the witches barrier that attacked Mami back in the beginning. The witch is still out there.
>>33186025Not saying it was mutant space cats, but
>>33186050According to the wiki, no. We ought to give it a shot when shit isn't hitting the fan hard enough to send it crashing down on our heads.
>>33186071Nah, man, we banged our head on the door. We never even went in the house.
>>33186094We never woke up. Ever since the day we "woke up" with no memory of our past has been a dream.
Everything was just a dream born from the insanity of Homu-cifer.What? i wanted to try my hand at them shadowruns
>>33186130No, waitThe events of Rebellion are happening RIGHT NOW. The barrier just took a different form, is all.
>>33186094We had a heart attack before we ever became a magical girl, and are in a coma in a hospital. Everything (Madoka, QB, time travel, etc) has just been a dream.
>>33186146I live this
>>33186169Sigh, stupid autocorrect
>>33186146Homu played Max Payne far too many times.
>>33186133We suggest calling her the Blind Good-For-Nothing God.
>>33185713Well played cat, well played.>>33185934Your rage is why I will never, ever, stop drawing Neco.
>>33185026 >>33185035 >>33185065 >>33185068...You don't want to make what could be your last words to Midori a veiled reprimand, but you have to at least make her know that you're not exactly pleased with what she did earlier. So while you accept her farewell with a nod, you return it with three words that makes her freeze right where she stands. A look of shocked dismay on her face."We'll talk later," you murmur, before closing the door behind you as you exit the suite. Immediately breaking into a run for the elevator, just as it heralds the arrival of an empty car with a 'ding'. It's as you wait for the elevator to deliver you to the ground floor that your thoughts stray back to the matter at hand - Oriko. It's...you were convinced that she was possessed, or being manipulated by Ahriman somehow. Wendy bought it, the High Priestess seemed to buy into it enough to agree with what you've got planned...and you did promise Kirika and Kyoko that you'd try. But...Misaka? To go after someone like her? Sure, the little Russian girl probably has enough guns and explosives inside her warehouse to start a war with another continent - Tiny Pete is practically a walking war crime on his own - but she's still just a kid. Just like other kids, she hated eating vegetables, she loved chocolate, and she liked being praised while getting patted on the head. She cries, she throws tantrums, and she wants nothing more than you, her surrogate big sister, to always remember her name. Going after children, even if you were that hell-bent on retribution, just isn't done.[1/2]
>>33186292Sayaka's assessment earlier sounded good enough to be true. Maybe Oriko was that driven for revenge, for payback, that killing children wasn't something she'd balk at doing, if it meant crossing all the Ts and dotting all the i's. It's not like that's unheard of. That would also mean that she's well and beyond saving - because someone that consumed for revenge won't stop until they got what they wanted. Either they win, or they die trying to. It's as simple as that.But then again, she does have a Golden Weapon with her. And your first hand experience with them tells you that whoever ends up getting one for any amount of time is bound to become a bit...loopy, especially with the spirits inside of them. Your memories of Ahriman is still a bit spotty, but from what Kharn told you, she seems like the type to manipulate and bully to get her way. There's still a good chance that this is the case here, which means that you can still rescue Oriko.There's just the fact, then, that gradual corruption and possession is the worst that a contracted folk would have. Uncontracted folk seems to be a wholly different thing entirely. The last time you fought an uncontracted person wielding a Golden Weapon, they had to burn down the entire wing of the mansion you killed him in - because apparently the walls that you painted with the Golden Weapon user's brains and guts wouldn't stop turning into flesh no matter how many times the owners tried to replace them....You'll try. You promised, so you'll try. That's the end of it. At the very least, you can say you tried your best, and no one would call you liar again. Or good-for-nothing. Something like that.A few moments later, and the elevator doors open to let you out. Ground Floor, main lobby. Stepping out, you see Sayaka and Wendy already sitting astride the white, rocket booster-infested hulk of steel and wheels that is Schpeltiger. [2/3]
>>33186307Your ex is revving the engines, and it's roaring loud enough to rattle the building's solid plate glass door. ...Jesus, what kind of fuel does it run on? How many fucking miles to the gallon does it get? Because every rev sounds like it's burning away enough for three cars' worth, it's that loud.Both Wendy and Sayaka look up at you as you approach. "...And here I thought you'd catch a quickie before you left," Wendy remarks, just the slightest bit of venom in her eyes and in her voice. She doesn't give you a chance to reply, however. "Hop on, quick. With luck we'd be there before the rush hour starts." She scoots back on the seat along with your Equerry, revealing a substantial amount of the leather seat built for the biker themselves....Wait. Why are you at the front? Why can't you ride from behind, like a normal jackoff? Why does Sayaka get to ride bitch while you can't, even though it's more fitting for her?Sayaka and Wendy glance at each other, before Sayaka pipes up. "Sorry, Murderface. You're too noodly to ride bitch. You might fall off of something, 'specially when we get up to speed."Ah. Right. Well, if she puts it that way..."Stop being so fucking picky. It's just a seat." Wendy snaps again. "Come on! I thought you wanted to save your friend, Kong? Why are you delaying a fucking rescue mission, then?"You're just thinking, you return, and it's here that you insinuate yourself between Wendy and the bike proper, planting your ass on the already-warm seat. Your ex's chin resting gently against yours as she reaches past you, her arms on either side of you to grip the handlebars. It's almost comfortable, and it is, especially with the cold morning air....Oh, and her breasts. Her breasts are pressing against your back. Twin globes of soft, heavy warmth wrapped in thick cotton, squashing themselves against your shoulder blades with every breath you take. [3/4]
>>33186329"Hold on to the handlebars too, Kong, just don't try to steer. Leave that to me." Wendy murmurs into your ear, her position more of forced necessity than anything else but sounding less and less relunctant about it. "...Mickey, hold on tight, alright?"And with that, Wendy mans the massive, ivory-white hulk of Schpeltiger away from its parking spot - away from the hotel, away from the business area of Mitakihara. Once in the highway itself - the roads still sort of devoid of passengers to the early hour, with only a few stragglers and early birds here and there - it's here that Wendy seems to open the taps on Schpeltiger, the bike roaring and then rocketing forward. Pressing you back harder against your ex's frame. Making the scenery whip past in a seamless, color-smeared blur.It's fast, but...it's not fast enough. Not nearly fast enough.The Shield clamped on your arm slowly, carefully, begins to tick again.Let Wendy handle it. She knows what she's doing. You'll get there fast enough.Use one of your two Timestops.
>>33186363>[x]Use one of your two Timestops.I'd say no, but it's a Pinky free timestop. And we gotta get there FAST.
>>33186363>[X]Use one of your two TimestopsIt's ticking, that means Pinky wants us to use it, right?Otherwise[X]Let Wendy handle it. She knows what she's doing. You'll get there fast enough.
>>33186363 Use one of your two Timestops.Misaka's death is not something that can be risked. Ever.
>>33186363[x]Let Wendy handle itNice try, Pinky. Last thing we need is pissing off her again when we desecrate her private time again.
>>33186363>[x]Let Wendy handle it. She knows what she's doing. You'll get there fast enough.Even if it was ret-conned, remember what happened the last time we used time stop and brought a passenger.
>>33186363>[x]Use one of your two Timestops.This is an appropriate time to be using it.
>>33186363>[X]Use one of your two Timestops.SAVE MISAKA
>>33186363>Use one of your two Timestops.
>>33186363>use one of your two time stops.
>>33186363>[X]Use one of your two Timestops.
>>33186363>[x]Let Wendy handle it. She knows what she's doing. You'll get there fast enough.
>>33186363Let Misaka die or thoroughly piss off pinky for bringing others inside timestop...
>>33186363[X]Use one of your two Timestops.
>>33186406Piss off PinkyMisaka must live
>>33186363[X]Use one of your two Timestops.We can not take any chances, do it for Misaka.
>>33186363>[X]Use one of your two TimestopsWith both Sayaka and Wendy on close physical contact? And they both know Pinky? No. Hell no.
On one hand Pinky has been hanging around wendy so she probably wont go full berserkah on our asses again, this might also help in telling sayaka that no its not an hallucination and all that.still im leery about it, i dont want a repeat of the QB incident.
>>33186363>[X] USE IT
>>33186363>[x]Use one of your two Timestops."I-it's not like I want to help you save the girl, I was just getting lonely, Homura-chan!""Riiiight."
>>33186363>[x]Use one of your two Timestops.Warn them first that we're going to activate it..Also, to the people talking about pissing off Pinky. This is a timestop that Pinky gave us.
>>33186363Timestopping is a bad bad idea. Pinky won't be happy that we will bring others to the timestop-world.But not timestopping is strongly implied to get Misaka killed, which is also a very bad thing.Argh. Well, Pinky knows both Wendy and Sayaka so lets risk it.[X]Use one of your two Timestops.
>>33186363>Use one of your two Timestops.Anything to save Misaka. We can use them both if it gets the job done.
>>33186423And I chose the wrong option lol. This is what happens when you're on the phone and on the phone. Just to make it clear, my vote is AGAINST using time stop now
>>33186394To be fair, it was Kuuybey. Kuuybey isnt really a friend to Pinky. Plus, having Sayaka meet Pinky would ease up things for later.
>>33186406This is why I hoped we would bring Midori with us, because at least Wendy and Midori have personally met and interacted with Pinky to some degree. Sayaka on the other hand has mostly been pestered by Pinky trying to convince her to turn in to a fish.
>>33186436Yes, however that does not mean that Pinky won't be there, just that she promised not to mess with the timestop.And if she knows about the three stooges...
>>33186423But Hat-chan, aren't these two Timestops specifically freebies given to us by Pinky?She wouldn't break a promise, would she?
>>33186436>Pinky>helping out of good willYou should've learned by now to not trust eldritch horrors
>>33186363[x]Let Wendy handle it. She knows what she's doing. You'll get there fast enough.Hell no.
>>33186446>on the phone and on the phone
>>33186478She'd also crazy and probably seething with jealousy right now, and we're with Sayaka. As another anon pointed out, if it were Midori it miiiiiight be alright, but Sayaka is just going to mess things up. Sayaka and Pinky in time stop is just gonna delay us, probably before we even move, and use up one of our freebies
>>33186363>[x]Let Wendy handle it. She knows what she's doing. You'll get there fast enough.I trust in wendy with this.
>>33186363>[x]Use one of your two Timestops.GOTTA GO FAST
[x]Let Wendy handle it. She knows what she's doing. You'll get there fast enough.
>>33186517Wendy has already been strongly implied to have met with Pinky, so she's fine. And we are warmaster, so Sayaka will listen to us, even if she doesn't like it. Trust her.
AHAHTIME FOR BEST GIRL
>>33186469To be fair, Pinky might not feel all that happy about Midori considering Chiaki had sex with her.And she is unlikely to kill Sayaka directly. Try to convince Sayaka to witch out yes, but unlikely to just kill her.Right now, my biggest concern is if she was looking when Braids used telekinesis and Dildoes flew the MiG.
On one hand, using a timestop with Sayakar close might be a terrible, terrible idea.On the other hand, our adorable Russian loli is in terrible danger.Decu why you do this>[X]Use one of your two Timestops
>>33186557Have you forgotten the venom and anger with which Pinky talked about Sayaka for refusing one of her gifts?
This really seems like one of those things where if you don't use it now, you'll be too late for something, but if you do use it now, you'll get into a scenario where you wish you saved it for later instead.I won't vote because I'm perfectly content with either option.
>>33186446Hat, go to sleep, pls, you're drunk and adorable.
>>33186558Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, OH BOY!!!
>>33186363>[x]Use one of your two Timestops.I miss Pinky, anyway.
>>33186517>Delay>TimestopHat, stop being dumb
>>33186363>[x]Use one of your two Timestops.Damned if we do, damned if we don't. This at least has a better chance at saving our Russian.
>>33186582Yeah, we are so fucked no matter what we do.
>>33186436>This is a timestop that Pinky gave us.That doesn't really matter when Pinky is going to be there because she inhabits Timestop-space.She only said she'll let it be activated, not that she won't do anything once we're in Timestop, or that people we bring with us won't be attacked.
>>33186631Which vote won? Timestop?
>>33186604Hey, time stop just means it's frozen for everybody else. If Pinky is mad enough at Sayaka, then she /will/ delay us before we can even move or cancel it outright before we do. My main concern here are Sayaka and Pinky, and getting knocked out of time stop before any real amount of distance is covered
>>33186640I wonder if it would have been possible to tell Sayaka to lean back so she would not touch Chiaki and then trigger the timestop. That way Sayaka would not have been pulled into it.Ahwell.
>>33186639By a landslide.
>>33186582Dunno anon, had the same thinking in VMQ2. Dropped it that thread and still regret not voting.
>>33186578Damn. Really hope Sayakar listens to us and doesn't BITCH OUT.That feel when you might have kill misaka. =(
>>33186672If she's not in Timestop, then how do you expect to move her with us?
>>33186660Time for a Bad End!
>>33186146Actually, the events of Rebellion took place hundreds of millions of years ago.Madoka broke out of the barrier, and Homura was sealed away as punishment.Madoka has been attempting to "reform" Homura. From our perspective, it could have been only a few loops ago. But in reality it's been been hundreds of millions of loops, or more.Our past selves are all hopelessly out of date. There's a war brewing with forces beyond our comprehension and Madoka has been forced to enroll us, dumb and blind, practically against her will, which she hates doing because we're chaotic as fuck and almost invariably wind up turning a situation on it's head just out of sheer stubborness.>can't live with 'em>can't live without 'em
Time for some 時よ止まれ! ! !
Alright, pausing thread for now! Next thread tomorrow night, same time! Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always encouraged!We have one writeup for tonight! Questions answered after it!
>>33186712So you don't realize that it doesn't matter if Sayaka is a bitch or not, because Pinky is the one that is angry and wants her to Witch Out, and is going to delay us because of this?
Magical Assassin Wendy Cooldown vs. The Great Sage of the Outback Leman RussAfter the fucking debacle Crazy Cunt put her through, I was astonished Papers was still with us. Still…all there. Mostly there, anyway. More there than most people’d be, facing down their own witch. Let alone on their first witch hunt. She’d be a hero, in a better Officio. …Not ours, but not this outback hell on the asshole of the world, either. They were treating this like it was nothing. A brief stop in medical, enough to get her patched up and a few extra seeds as a precaution, then…Well, I brought her back to her room. She didn’t need to be badgered and questioned after that. I knew Mary’d use it as a springboard for our negotiation; we’d all agreed this was neglect of the highest order – sending a fresh-faced noncombatant rookie into a barrier without so much as a real support team was practically murdering her. She was damn lucky Crunch could take that witch out as fast as she did, because I sure as shit couldn’t, and luckier that the grief seed was enough to get her back to the Officio.…Someone had to look after her, though, and I volunteered instantly. I wanted to make sure Crunch didn’t fucking touch her after that stunt. Well, that, and I was sure I’d shove my knife through Leman Russ’s smug fucking face if she tried to handwave this. Last I talked with Annie, she looked like she was pretty close, too, and she LIKED Russ.[1/11]
>>33186714Does Homura not move people (Sayaka for example) in timestop. That implies that people are pulled into the timestop world only if they are touching Homura at the moment the timestop activates.We see this in the anime when Homura interferes in the fight between Sayaka and Kyoko and "teleports" Sayaka to safety just before Kyoko would have hit her.So if Chiaki were to activate timestop, and THEN grab onto Sayaka, Sayaka would be pulled along but not be part of the timestop.
>>33186714Well... The effects of the time stop don't occur immediately when an object stops being in contact with Chiaki. Bullets will fly a short distance, lobbed grenades will arc when thrown, etc. One could assume that if Sayaka's in contact with the bike and not Chiaki, that she'd get dragged along without actually being pulled into it, ie: she would remain outside and she'd just experience being transported immediately. Well, at this point, it depends on how Decu chooses to write things. I can never really dislike Pinky time, I just hope it doesn't result in Misaka dying over Pinky throwing a tantrum
Elly’d been up for a few minutes now, looking all the world like death on two pudgy legs. Didn’t have an ounce of color in her anymore, and every time she’d open her mouth to try and talk, she couldn’t manage anything but a hiccup. Good thing I kept candy stashed away in my inventory (usually for Lily, sometimes for Annie or Nakajima) to take the edge off with; I got up a couple of minutes ago for just long enough to move to the other side of her bed, where she still had a hand to hold, and she made this terrified little noise, like a cat choking on a hairball.It’d be cute on any other day.Her hand squeezed mine again. It was…tiny, way too small, and it felt so frail right then. She kept glancing down to the stump where her arm used to be. Kid didn’t deserve this – any of this, not what we did to her, not what the Sixth did to her. Not what that crazy sword bitch did to her especially. Fuck. Just thinking about it made me want to stab a fucking lovehole in everybody in Australia. I was smarter than that, but shit. It might have been worth it.…Footsteps in the hall. Soft ones, but there was no hesitation in them. I think the kid heard them too; she bit down on the sucker I’d given her, and her nails dug into my hand. Just as I expected, they stopped outside the door. Papers shot me a look, as if she were begging me to stop whatever was coming next.“Fuck off!” I hissed at…yeah. I was pretty sure I knew who it was already. Wasn’t Vagina Spiders, she was louder, when she didn’t need to sneak around. Wasn’t Crunch or the door would be off its hinges already. Her Majesty had no reason to visit Papers, and since we’d made this incident into the lynchpin of our proposal…[2/11]
“I’ll never quite understand you Americans. People call us a lot of nasty things, but even we typically start with ‘Please, come in’, or at very least ‘How you goin’?’” She knocked (as if it made a fucking difference) and let herself in, smoothly closing the door behind her, and gave me a small, mischievous smile that made my heart skip a beat (entirely against my will).The Great Sage of the Outback Leman Russ was small and slender, almost frail. Silky red-brown hair fanned out behind her as she walked, and settled evenly around her as she sat next to me on the bed. I didn’t leave much room for her; I wanted to stay between the kid and these sheepfuckers for as long as I could. The air filled with an indescribable sent, a wild, fresh smell that I’d been told reminded Mary of her and Annie's hometown, minus some cow shit. Elly wrinkled her nose and turned away a bit. Seemed to be bugging her, too. …It was hard to put into words the significance Russ seemed to give a room, but I’d been told before that that was, like, the most basic trait of a good Warmaster. It was a damn accomplishment, when you’re half-dog or…whatever the hell she was. …Her dress looked like it cost half my monthly salary, too. Five digits easy.“How are you feeling, Eleanor?” The kid peeked out at her Warmaster and her lips parted. …There was a second of hesitation, then her nails dug into my hand all over again.. …She tried to take the sucker out with the hand that wasn’t there anymore, if I had to guess. I shot Russ a look.“Your fucking retard rank leader almost killed her, almost definitely crippled her. Permanently. Does she look alright to you?” I growled, and Russ just nodded, as if she’d barely heard what I said. Smug fuck.[3/11]
>>33186743How does Timestop work?Does touching a person after Timestop is activated pull them into Timestop?Do they have to be in contact when Timestop is activated?
>>33186746No, but I don't believe that Pinky will deliberately delay saving a child. She's shown that she's been willing to work with us before, and she isn't completely bonkers (yet). Believe in Pinky!
“She’ll need a new arm, then, and her leg…did she injure it in the barrier? The medical team mentioned she’d cracked her shin. It’s going to be hard for her to run until it’s healed properly.” …Running really wasn’t something Papers did. Except...away. She was pretty good at running away.“One of your girls fucked up her leg. And we’ve already got plans to deal with it. All of it. Back in Santa Destroy.” I emphasized that last bit, in case she didn’t get the fucking message.“I’m sure you do.” Again with that condescending tone. “And do you have a Culexus?”“…Why do we need a Culexus?” I had to fight to keep my knife out of my hand already.“For Eleanor’s sake, we’d like to wipe her memory of that…incident. You understand the severity of coming into contact with one’s own witch, of course.” Aaand I lost it. Lost the fight, felt one hand curled around an old, wooden handle as Papers squeaked and clutched the other. As if she wasn’t shaking enough already.“You’re gonna scramble her fucking brain? No, this conversation is fucking over. We’re taking her. Now. “ I started to stand, and Elly followed suit, leaning on me. Russ’s eyes flicked to my knife, but only for a moment. She just sighed. “You may be willing to start a war over this, Miss Cooldown, but I’m not. I will not, however, allow you to just walk away with her.” I looked down at Elly. …Don’t even think she knew what was going on. She just wanted to be out of here. She never asked for any of this. She winced as she shifted her weight again, and I eased her back down onto the bed.[4/11]
“If there are no further complications – and that’s still an ‘if’ at this point – we’re willing to offer her a memory wipe, if she chooses. Is that more acceptable? Giving her the choice?” Her eyes narrowed just slightly, and I felt a chill in the air. That much, at least, Elly didn’t seem to pick up. I sunk down on the bed next to her.“…Yeah. But she’s…” I squeezed my knife, then dismissed it. ...She was a kid. Would she even know if she could live with that kind of memory? …I’d met a handful of people that had dealt with their own witches, and you had to be made of some pretty strong shit to walk away intact.“She’s a member of the Sixth, Miss Cooldown.” Her tone shifted. It was colder, now. Commanding. It matched her new expression flawlessly. …It sounded better coming from her than the distant kindness she’d been showing, though. At least it wasn’t vaguely insulting. “It hasn’t escaped my notice that you’ve been doing nothing but coddle her since you got here.” The Warmaster’s tail swished behind her, and for a moment, I was a rabbit in front of a wolf. I glared back as steady as I could.…I’d split her fucking stomach if she gave me a reason. She knew it, too. Not sure if I could have taken her in a fight, but I was already making a plan. Don’t doubt for a second that she was, too.“Do you really think she’ll be better off rotting in the Eighth, Miss Cooldown?” Her eyes were a deep red, more natural than Annie’s or Miss Marigold’s. Staring down Leman Russ was like staring down nature itself.“We’re not gonna let that happen again. What happened before was…disgusting, and we’re not letting our little shitcubator pull that ever again.” It was all too easy to get pulled into her rhythm. I found my own tone evening out, even as every muscle in my body was coiled, ready to rip her throat out. [5/11]
>>33186778With the way it was implied that the bike was not fast enough, I would speculate that it was a hint from Decu that not using timestop would result in Misaka dying.As such, I would think the one in greatest danger is not Misaka, but rather Sayaka or Chiaki (if Pinky knows we broke our promise to her).
>>33186824The latter seems to be the case. At least I'm pretty sure there hasn't been an instance of the former in the series or movies.
“That isn’t what I mean. Do you really think a pretty cage full of sweets and video games is going to be any better for her?” I couldn’t read her. Not at all, and it made me edgy. She didn’t seem angry. Didn’t seem upset. Just…steely. Entirely sure of herself. Like she walked in and owned the both of us.“Better than Crazy Cunt. You know. The reason she doesn’t have a goddamn arm right now.” Least it was easy to stay pissed.“This isn’t about Crunch, this is about Slam. The reason I’m hesitant to let her go with you isn’t that I’m worried she’ll end up overworked and broken, it’s that I’m worried you won’t push her at all. For an Officio that claims to be full of cold-blooded assassins-”“Oh fuck off, the kid’s traumatized.” If Papers hadn’t been clinging to me like a baby bear cub I would have leapt right there. I could practically feel my knife on that haughty bitch’s throat. “Warmaster Springfield has been working her ASS off to get rid of the image that our girls are all bugfuck crazy monsters. You’re just shitting on us when we’re trying to do something nice for somebody we fucked over!” Her tone wasn’t changing at all even now, and it was really starting to piss me off. Elly shrunk away from me as I all but yelled at Russ.“She can’t sit in a room and do nothing forever.” She raised her voice slightly, just slightly, and that was all it took to make the whole world quiet. “And you have no place encouraging it. She is in my Officio. You are not. And if you were, you would damn well not be allowed to continue treating her like a helpless kitten. You of all people should know better, Assassin.” She hissed the word out, like she didn’t believe it. She was mocking me.…Maybe I’d gone soft. Maybe she was right.[6/11]
“…Eleanor. Do you have anything you’d like out of life?” Russ spoke again, her tone gentler now, and she turned her liquid steel gaze on Papers.“Just leave her alone-““I wasn’t talking to you, Miss Cooldown. I was never talking to you. I didn’t even realize you were in here until I smelled car exhaust and processed beef, and I wouldn’t let you stay here if I weren’t completely sure you and your American friends would throw a fit. Let her answer, please.” I opened my mouth, then shut it and looked to the kid.“…candy shop…” she mumbled, numbly. At the Warmaster’s urging, she repeated herself, louder. “…I wanted to open a candy shop.” The kid’s faced burned red, and I couldn’t help but smile a little. …Never would have guessed.“…I want to keep you with us forever.” Russ beamed at her, the first genuinely pleasant expression I think I’d ever seen on her. With just a few words, Elly broke the tension in the room in half. “But we’ve got a lot of work to do first.”…She’d be alright. I’d heard a rumor once or twice that Russ had a family – a husband and a couple of puppies - and I’d believe it, with that expression. It was almost nurturing, and a little tiny part of me was kinda jealous. I tugged my hand away from Elly and moved to her other side, placing my hand on her shoulder instead, urging her toward Russ.“…C’mon, kid,” I murmured to her. “It’s okay. I’m still here.”“We’re going to keep you here at very least until you can defend yourself properly. Heather was clearly not the best choice for easing you into an Eversor’s lifestyle, and you clearly have a ways to go before you’re ready to attempt her level of…training.” …Even her own Warmaster had to force it out when it came to Crazy Cunt. [7/11]
>>33186824I'd have to rewatch Rebellion, but didn't Homura stop time and then grab Bebe, pulling her into the time stop after it was already activated? I'm not 100% sure how that scene went
“You’ll be expected to train on your own, or find your own trainer at a more suitable level. In the interests of allowing you to focus more on your goals and your training, you will no longer be required to do paperwork for the Officio.” Russ nodded again, mostly to herself. I think. Papers gave me a look, apparently entirely bewildered. Confused. …I don’t think she ever expected someone to say she got to stop doing fucking paperwork, and I especially doubt she ever expected anybody to take her dream seriously.“You will, however, be expected to continue contributing to the Officio’s operation. To that effect, you’ll be working under my younger sister, Jael, in managing one of our side-businesses, Sundry Offerings. Ideally, you can also get a bit of experience behind the counter this way.” I was starting to feel like an asshole. Seemed like she’d really come up with a plan that…actually gave the kid what she needed to get going. Didn’t even occur to any of the rest of us.“You’re going to need to show a little more backbone, but you have a goal now, don’t you? And we’ll be happy to help you work toward it as you train to become an Eversor.” Yeah. She was definitely a mother. Looking at Elly now, it seemed like she might have been thinking more about her than even her parents ever had, let alone us. “Of course, to do that, you’ll need to kill a witch on your own OR defeat one of our Eversors in single combat.” Papers gave me another look. She needed somebody to back Russ up before she’d believe it. …Poor kid couldn’t even do that much. Fuck.‘Don’t fuck this up for her,’ the wolf glared at me over Elly’s shoulder. She all but mouthed it. My eyes snapped to her, then down to the kid’s, and I ruffled her hair.[8/11]
“…Seems like Crunch is out of the picture, kid. And you’re off the hook for bitch duty. Why don’t you, uh…You think you’ll be okay sticking it out here until you’ve gotten your footing? We can talk about taking you back into the Eighth once Miss Russ is satisfied.” The Warmaster gave me an approving smile, and my cheeks burned a little. …Papers looked a little hurt, but gave me a nod. “We’ll be testing you again as soon as your leg’s healed, so get to training as hard as you can before then.” Russ and I relaxed in near-unison, but Elly went as stiff as a board.“What.” Elly squeaked the word out in her small, choked voice. “I can barely even walk, how am I-““You’ll manage. And Jael and I’ll be delighted to help you along the road to your own candy shop while you train.” Was that…excitement? She was really into that fucking candy shop. Maybe she just liked seeing the kid grow a purpose; I sure was.“…What about Crazy Cu… …Crunch?” Her shoulders slumped. She’d given in, like she…kind of always did, I guess, since I’d known her.“Heather’s taken a forcible leave of absence for the next…month.” The Warmaster’d barely betrayed her emotions so far, but the way she said it made me think it wasn’t exactly the punishment she had in mind. “You don’t need to worry about her for now.”Papers twirled the little red sucker in her hand and nodded slowly.“Maybe she’ll die,” I offered. Russ let out a small sigh, but it made the kid smile awkwardly up at me. Maybe she forgave me a little.“I don’t want her to die. …I just…want her to leave. Forever. But a month is…okay. I guess.”[9/11]
>>33186864Like I said, there is a specific instance of this happening in both the anime and the movies, where Homura moved Sayaka in a timestop without Sayaka realising what was happening.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgNgVQJIvU0
>"A-ah? You...you did? Pancakes?" Pinky gets back up on her feet, patting her blouse and skirt down with an almost cat-like fastidiousness. "...So that was what I smelled. I thought for a moment you'd brought someone else in here with you, Homura-chan!" She stands in front of you, hands on hips. "If you really did that, then I'll be very angry at you, you know!"Good job, guys
“A month will be plenty of time. I’m sure she’ll be a changed woman when she returns.” Russ reached out to pat Elly’s other shoulder, and the two of them exchanged awkward almost-smiles. “She shouted as much herself. Repeatedly. While she insisted she be allowed to pay for the ‘most magnificent robot arm’ we can have designed for you.” Another self-satisfied nod. “We’ve already begun making arrangements with the Second’s Mechanicus division.”“She…what.” Elly opened her mouth, then shut it. …She didn’t want a MAGNIFICENT ROBOT ARM or whatever Crunch wanted for her. She wanted a regular arm, so she could do regular things. …That’s how she was. But she kept quiet and nodded. A dark look crossed Russ’s face; she probably understood, but……Well, we’d have done the same thing. ‘Regular things’ aren’t always an option for us anymore. Maybe she’d be able to get an extra, something more ordinary, and swap them back and forth, once she was bringing more of a paycheck in.Russ stood and stretched, her ears twitching just a little, but I called out to her before she could leave. …One thing was bugging me.“…It was restricted, wasn’t it? …The place she took us. Only way I can see to explain the…the witch. And she just gets a month off and an apology check?” Elly’s witch. There were only a handful of places in the world where that could happen. …Kid didn’t need to know even that much, though.“It isn’t your place to question our Officio’s policies, Miss Cooldown.” Russ smiled coolly at me. Seemed like that was all she did. “But Heather was entirely within her rights as a Rank Leader. We do understand that her judgment was…subpar, but we’re all hoping a month of training with the warrior-nuns in the Seventh will do her some good, in more ways than one. Is there anything else?”I started to shake my head, but paused halfway through.[10/11]
>>33186886Oh so she did. I guess that might be the only way she can control who moves in time stop with her voluntarily.
“…I’m gonna stay with Elly until we head out. That gonna be a problem?”“No, no problem at all. Expected, really; we’ll have your gift basket delivered to Miss Slam’s room, and you two can share it before you leave.” With that and a few swishes of her tail, she was gone, and Papers collapsed against me, losing herself furiously in her cherry-flavored sucker.I just hugged her for a little while.[11/11]Thanks to Deculture for letting me write and for some of the artThanks to Cooldown for writing the entire thing after I handed her an outline and a concept
>>33186948To be fair, she did "give it back to us" for a couple of time stops, so she may not actually be present.
>>33186981Hopefully that's the case.
>>33186743Since the votes have been counted I might aswell ask. What would have happened had we NOT used the timestop?
>>33186743Thanks for running!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived and updated!>>33186973Not the supreme happy end I was hoping for but it still put a smile on my face, thanks you!
>>33187025But that would ruin the surprise of waiting until tomorrow!
>>33187001it's a pretty thin hope, but ...oh.oh.shit.witchfire.Remind me why we brought Sayaka again?Because, y'know... predestination is a tricksy thing.What if rushing off to "save" Misaka is the very thing that causes her death?
>>33187053No I mean the alternate path.We chose timestop, so we get to see what happens in the timestop. I was just wondering what would have happened with the "path not taken".
>>33187025>>33187075I would rather not know, too much potential regret.
>>33187085Hey, you never know. Pinky might be in a good mood and its all sugar and candy for everyone!
>>33187075I wish I had the 'In a universe where we chose the katana...' image handy.
>>33186949“A month will be plenty of time. I’m sure she’ll be a changed woman when she returns.”HA HA HASORRY RUSS, THE CRUNCH TRAIN HAS NO BRAKES
>>33187106Can't say I'm not curious but its really not my cup of tea.
Oh, and whoever it was that saved this:>>33186614Made me smile.>>33187038She has to work for her happy ending instead of sitting there hoping it drops into her lap.>>33187117Ahaha!
Our Grand High Lord and Master is dead for the day, so you're stuck with me. Questions?
Actually if we go all tranquil fury and when pinky starts getting all full of steam we look her in the eyes and go "Madoka, Please help me save misaka, you can do whatever you want with me after that but just help me save misaka" or something like that, i think that could actually work you know!
>>33187176Will we get a writeup about the meeting from Wendy's perspective?
>>33187199>not hairflipare you even trying
>>33187207I've thought about it, but I don't think it would add a whole lot that wasn't apparent in the meeting aside from a conversation with the High Priestess and maybe another one with Seyiku.I'll think about it in more depth.
>>33187176What is Wendy opinion on Pinky and Sayakar?>>33187222I tought that was an automatic action?
>>33187239Pinky's...complicated. She can't say she likes her, but she owes her a lot. But she wouldn't say she likes Amber, either, and they're best friends.Mickey's alright. Good people, got her head on straight. Manages to be a potent Eversor without being bugfuck crazy, good on her. They don't exactly hang out, Mickey's more one of Amber's friends. Or Sab's, somewhat more awkwardly.I will say Sayaka actually didn't have confirmation on whether Wendy was alive until this meeting; she was going by what Amber had said, and was still somewhat skeptical.
>>33187176Why is Leman Russ Holo?
>>33187364Why not? Hell, The Wise Wolf is shockingly appropriate for Russ as portrayed in Prospero Burns (minus the whole "I'm so ronrey" bit, I suppose)
>>33187364Once in a while we at MGNQ like to at least somewhat respect the canon of the things we're stealing from. The Kohaku expy is cheerful. The Madotsuki expy is sleepy and dream-oriented. The Sonozaki Shion expy seems to be just a little bit secret crazy.Likewise, Leman Russ is Holo.
>>33187364Because she's the Primarch of the Space and Wolves.It's a running /tg/ gag thing
>>33187409Does Midori know what she did was kinda asinine or is she still being all jelly and rationalizing right now?
>>33187295Speaking of Sab, is she on active duty now or what? The girl had potential if she could control / direct her powers.
>>33187468She apologized, so I guess she knows she stepped out of line. And since Chiaki basically scolded her, she probably knows she going to be punished. I suggest a maid costume
>>33187468Midori's a little dumb, but she's not that dense. I think she probably still feels completely justified while maybe acknowledging that she acted kind of rashly.>>33187494Not too long after Sayaka and Malal bailed the Eighth out, Sab started training and soon went into active duty as part of the Wonderland Corps. Right now, she's officially KIA.Like Wendy. And Amber.
>>33187515>not a butler costumeIt's like you don't know how punishment works. You need to at least make them uncomfortable while getting your jollies.
>>33187548Well, I'm already drawing her in a butler costume, so I guess that works. I just wanted an excuse for the maid costume, really
>>33187543>she's officially KIA.GODDAM->Like Wendy. And Amber.So what you're saying is, there is a chance?Maybe that is who they're trying to get out of the cult?
>>33187592I'd say there's at least a chance.
>>33187569Actually, I'll just try to draw her as both now, hahaha.
>>33187515>maid costume>Not a ramen chef outfitTorture is an art.Though honestly, its a matter of boundaries. Really it was sweet and in just about any other situation it would have been welcome.Its a matter of hats. We were both literally and metaphorically wearing the warmasters hat.Honestly, just saying "we'll talk" is probably sufficient.Unless she does it again.So, what we're looking for is something that acts as a deterrent against that behavior.We should probably start by asking her why she thinks we didnt take her on the Misaka rescue and correcting any misinterpretations
>>33187854Did we secure the hat before riding? Don't want it blown away or anything like that.
>>33187854Because to be blunt, NOT taking her was intended mostly as an immediate behavioral correction....man, we might have picked up more of Mami by osmosis than we realised.
>>33187606Aside from Tiny Pete and the other robot Sayaka brought back as salvage, does Misaka have any other active defenders around right now? Does she have any favors she could have conceivably called in that Chiaki & co. could see as reinforcements/defenders during the mission?
>>33187913I would have thought not taking her on an obviously high-combat and dangerous scenario where we already had a more combat-ready (and depending on how you look at it, expendable) Callidus with us was a logical choice, really, even beyond the discipline bits.>>33187924Blessed Lady help us all if she called her sister-in-law.
>>33187854Nah, well... Midori has already implied that while she likes helping her family, she doesn't want to be a "ramen chef" for the rest of her life. I'm all for punishing her and letting her know that she did something dumb. Telling her "we'll talk later", while it wasn't my choice, will give her some time to reflect on her actions. After that, well, some light punishment and that might embarrass her without hurting her feelings is what I had in mind. Ramen chef is a tricky subject that I'd rather avoid, considering our previous conversations with her. Sticking her in a maid costume? Comedy gold. Also an excuse to draw Meidori
>>33187913Err. Callidus, Eversor. Combat rescue. Who would you pick?
