You have a dream. A dream where you as a black ranger, Marie as white ranger, Raye as red ranger, Yuu as pink ranger, Yuuki as blue ranger and Kanna as green ranger. With the 6 of you fighting the forces of the alien queen Sach Iko and her general Nata Lya you pose yourselves with explosions in the back calling the evil to be vanquish.......except that both of you are evil in normal people sense....HEY WHY I AM INSIDE THE MONITOR!! AM I THE A.I.? I WANNA BE A RANGER TOO!! YUUKI IS A RANGER TOO THAT ISN'T FAIRWell I'm a robot comic relief. *Beep Bop* We can be ridiculous at each other at the rangers base. *Beep Bop*Does that mean Yuuki is the traitor who turned a new leaf to help the rangers?Beat's me. *Beep Bop* For some reason, there are people talking inside your head. You just ignored it and move on to kung-fu fighting and backflipping cause that is what rangers do.EXPLOSIONS.....................................>Archived threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Revenge%20Quest>Previous thread: >>>3380696>Junko Skill List: https://pastebin.com/ppWJz89J> Mari Skill List: https://pastebin.com/DuPyuzx2>Other Cast: https://pastebin.com/BgrNeUe9>Pastebin info: https://pastebin.com/u/CorruptorQM>Twitter for updates and runs(QM may sometimes forget to post): https://twitter.com/CorruptorQM>Something to take note: I use 1d100 roll under which means Nat 1 is critical and Nat 100 is critical fail>Write-in is fine as long as it fits the narrative.

My tacos have difficulty expressing into words that thesaurus can't help me on that end.>Last of all, relax and enjoy the ride.....................Morning comes and the group is now together. Civilians secured after they try to take them out. You wake up still on your shrine maiden costume. Then you feel in your sleepy eyes as the twinkle of lights flashes through your closed eyes. Rubbing the sand in your eyes your senses came to a clarity that several shots of photograph is being captured. Then your sudden realization like some kind of magic, everything is gone. Like there is no one in your room. You can probably blame it with your exhaustion. Your paranoia hasn't given you any time of the day when it comes to Marie obsession of you being a model..........................After your daily ritual of everything youself, you have you day wide open.>Go somewhere (where?)>Do something (what?)>Train (what?)>Investigate (who?)>Write-in

>>3416737>Do something: Get the team of girls together. Call Kanna and tell her to meet up with the rest of the team.>Quick team meeting with the team and Okada, see if he made any progress with Sachiko's location. Share what you found out from Yuuki last night. Ask Okada where you could get dual fans and a backpack for Yuu's shire maiden gear. See if the girls can detect Arc.>Afterwards, Go somewhere/investigate: Your old house. Arc was there. We might need to know why.

>>3416826Picking up your phone, you dial Kanna's number. After three rings, it picks up."Help, Kanna is sticking like a leech I-"There was a sudden muffled and some tumbling sound along with a background noises of something falling from the table. Then Kanna speaks up."Hello senpai! Please disregard my brothers plea. He can be playful at times you know~""Yeah, can you come to the mansion? We gonna have a meeting to-""OKAY I'LL BE THERE!! Onii~ Please don't go away alright....Or I'll be sick again and oooohh i don't want you to let go....""Mhhhmmmmphhhhh!!"The calls ends and you offer your prayers and sympathy to Kanna's brother. You could probably relate how she was close to losing his brother but is it kinda extreme? You could probably do the same to your mother if it comes to that but not in that way Kanna do....................Waking up Yuu was a hassle. You don't know how Yuu's mother woke her up everyday because she sleeps like a sloth especially in summer where rumored that she sleeps 24 hours a day once. It was a miracle that she wasn't dehydrated or getting an ulcer. Maybe because she eat a ton of food. You can only thing what is the budget of a Mitsukoshi household when Yuu is around. You feel like she is eating for 10-15 persons.........................*At safehouse*"WOW SO MANY FOOD!!""Wow Mitsukoshi-san you cook a lot of food huh.""Well, if you have a daughter of a glutton. You are going to cook something........in large portions."Mako sisters happily digs in with how large their portions are. Ako sheds a tear how she is happy to be alive.(1/2)
>>3416920>>3416920......................After all of them are here along with Okada who is busily punching the calculator and writing it on his ledger. The meeting starts."Thank you for coming here everyone. Yesterday was a success. It was also very ugly as Sachiko and Natalya is playing dirty. They included civillians. There was no casualties but they made a civil unrest. Last night Okada found a witness along with the tapes of the CCTV and the manhunt is started. How was the progress Okada?""While check points has been all around town along with patrols and civillian participation. There was a handful of police officers that are missing and or not reporting for duty. I surmised that they found the duo but quickly subdued. If I have to guess, they are trying to split the force by looking for the lost officer while looking for them. But they would only dug the grave deeper than they ever had to. Also the Interpol also reported that Natalya is also wanted in the country for Multiple Murders mostly on the mafias, Illegal possession of drug which possibly some of his clients defending, kidnapping, and forging.""Also I'll probably need a backpack and a dual fans for Yuu's shrine maiden gear."Everyone snickers at you except Yuu and Yuuki who just lowers her head blushing while the other tilts her head in confusion. You shut them up with a glare which they behaved immediately."Consider it done my queen.""Then, let's go to my house. Someone is expecting me.".....................You are now in front of your house. This is the house where your family and you grow up. Sweet and bitter memories were experienced in the house you lived. You enter your house where your group are in surveillance. Yuu and Kanna goes inside Yuu's house while you goes inside accompanied by Yuuki."Nothing is inside.....maybe she wasn't here.""Well.....I think she was tired of waiting."The living room is fine albeit with dust. The kitchen too. Opening the fridge is the empty contents. You see some dishes in the sink."Did Arc just raided our pantry?"Ignoring the question for the moment, you go upstairs first to your mothers room. The room is still the same with nothing of note. You exit and go to your room. Opening it you see a girl sprawling at your bed snoring loudly. Yuuki giggles while you aren't amused someone is sleeping in your bed. If Yuu was here she would be kicked out. Wait....why would you think something like that?>Wake Arc up>Wait for Arc to wake up>Leave her be>Write-in

>>3417061>"Marie, call Kanna and Yuu and get inside the house.">"Something happened?">"Nothing, just a visitor.">"Alright....."Minutes later the gang is here."Girls scan for traps and listening devices we have to be careful. Natalya was involved with this girl. Marie get Kanna and Yuu here.""Already did. Me and Kanna did the search on my house in case someone is lurking. Everything is clean.""Alright, Raye could you put on some tea and make a quick breakfast. It might be a good apology for the clothing incident she will probably get up for that.""Understood my queen""Should we bind her Yuu?""I dunno. But damn, she snores loudly huh.""Yeah....in fact I kinda want to burn the bed. It was my favorite sheet too.">Bind Arc?>Yes?>No?
>>3417090>No?She will probably take that as an attack is imminent.We just want to talk.
>>3417090>Yes?She trashed our home and our other encounters with her have been hostile. we don't know what she wants in here and for all that we know, this might be a body double or a trap, specially since she has been here for two days.>B-but we corrupted her warehouse. and she might just want to talk with usShhhh
>>3417090>only if she seems aggressive. >Get You and Marie to stand watch with you while you wait for her to wake up.
"Only if she seems aggressive. Yuu and Marie, go stand watch while I wait for her to wake up.">30 minutes later......"Can I plug her mouth? The noise is driving me insane.""Considering the noise that we are making, I'm surprised that she isn't waking up.">1 hour later"My queen, the food is ready, here is the tea. I also cleaned the kitchen and the living room out of dust."Raye brings a tea set and her in maid outfit. She seems to like being a maid."Please put it on my table over there."She puts the set and bows then goes out of the room."So how long are we gonna wait to wake her up."Then Arc starts to stir. All of you stood straight like some kind of yakuza waiting and staring at her.She sits on the bed rubbing the sand from her eyes. Then she looks at you, then on both sides."I must have been dreaming, or I'm too exhausted." Arc mumbles...."No Arc, you aren't dreaming.""Mmmnnnnn......."Arc lie down again and tries to sleep, then she bolts up straight as the situation in her head goes through her brain as suddenly, girls are now inside the room."Wait, who are you? What are you doing inside the house.""THIS IS MY HOUSE AND THAT IS MY BED YOU ARE SLEEPING!!""Oh....you must be Junko Kurosaki.""Yes and I need some explanation why you are sleeping in my bed. But first, tea."................................You go down the living room due to the fact that fitting 6 people is kinda tight. Also you don't have a lot to sit on which you elect to go downstairs. "Sorry for barging in. Kinda strapped out in cash and have to find somewhere to huddle in. Found something a hope source and I was hoping that someone would help a fellow magical girl like me. But it was abandoned and also the same time reeked with corruption. So, I made base here. Sorry about everything.""No no....I think I'm happy to provide something in return I mean we did something on that warehouse too.""Oh that.....it wasn't mine anyway. It was for my friend who likes.....ugh."You elbow Marie which she grunts in pain in her side. Then she bows."I'm sorry too for messing with your gifts or whatever it is. I'll make it up to you.""Like what?""I can provide some high end pairs. Don't worry, I didn't wear it. It's still inside the package.""I guess, I can report that I bought something better then.""Alright....with that out of the way. Arc, I don't want to make this long but. I need you help.""About her I assume?""Yes.....""As much as I want to help you but now.....I'm just an observer. Currently there are 3 people that are interested in this situation too. I suggest to make it quick. I don't know what they will do if they found you something too powerful.....especially you Junko Kurosaki, a former Magical Girl turned corrupted.>I know, but still I need you strength>I understand, I'll find someone to help us then>How can we make you help us. What are your conditions?>Write-in
>>3417135I don’t think we knew those were gifts. Not sure we’d understand sending lewd underwear as a gift either.1)If any of us find her, can we at least agree to put aside our differences and focus on sachiko and Natalya? I don’t know if Yuuki will agree, but we mostly won the first time from surprise,the second time they nearly caused collateral damage, and I don’t want to see what they escalate to next. They dont care if anyone dies. Or more like they revel in it?2)there is a girl with a massive amount of corruption who isn’t a shadow. I doubt a dozen magical girls or shadows are capable of getting rid of it. You are not to harm her or her family. If you know about any sort of curses that could have caused that I’m all ears. If you’re still getting any bright ideas about doing anything to her reconsider that she’s probably been keeping the corruption down. I honestly don’t know how I didn’t notice her when I was alive.3) I noticed yuu had some corruption when she was healing Kanna last night. Can you purify them?
>>3417135>"Feel free to eat while we talk. The food is for you...I understand you are observing but Sachiko and Natalya have shown no hesitation to endanger the lives of civilians, magical girls, or shadows, if necessary. They were behind the airport attack yesterday; I don't know how much more attention Natalya can draw before people start asking questions about her magical ice and its source, people of the non-magical variety. I really just want to get everyone on the same page to deal with the common threat. If they have went after us, and Yuuki, they will come after you.">"I need some answers. What is going on here? I think Sachiko has taken up the work of her father. He was kidnapping girls for some reason, then killed his other daughter, and became a shadow. The original team killed him and Sachiko acted out revenge three years ago. That much is clear, but why create a second team only to start killing us later. I know you and Natalya were there. I know you and Natalya were involved with some sort of shadowy organization; potentially everyone involved was. What is its goals? If they are benevolent, how could they allow the situation in this town to deteriorate so totally?">"Furthermore, who are these three individuals. My benefactor has managed to reach out to someone or someones involved in magic. Are they threats? Should I take precautions?">"I know your an outside observer but I need all the help I can get, be it from you or others. Is there any way I can aid you? I have access to a benefactor with funds to spare. I can help you with that. Maybe I could find you a more secure base. Sachiko defiantly knows about this place. If you have any conditions that would let you work with me, let me know. At the very least take my phone number. That way we can keep in touch and avoid stepping on each others' toes like the whole warehouse thing. By the way I'm sorry about all of that. I don't know what came over my team. A bunch of girls shouldn't be so facinated by someone's panties and lingerie. Uhhh...*blush* or maybe I do know."sorry that took so well, manged to pick up a stomach bug sometime this weekend.
>>3417135adding to>>3417204>"Could you examine my friend Yuu, I believe you met before, and our junior member Kanna. I thought I saw traces of corruption on Yuu while she was transfusing hope energy to Kanna, yesterday. I can't seem to pick it up.">"Is there another way to produce a magical girl besides a hope essence. I have a prospective member for the team but I had to use the hope essence I had to deal with some of Natalya's handiwork"
>>3417135Interesting. Lots of small and subtle retcons that return the importance of Junko's status as a partially corrupted magical girl. that's nice.>How can we make you help us. What are your conditions?>Or, would it be possible for you to train us? I know that we lack in combat experience and yuu could benefit from a more experienced MG that doesn't want to kill her.>"I need some answers. What is going on here? We know nothing about sashiko -supposing that's her real name- other than she steals powers and convert the MGs into shadows to delete the evidence.>Is there another way to produce a magical girl besides a hope essence? >>3417185>I don’t think we knew those were gifts.

Uhhh...*blush* or maybe I do know."?? are you implying junko is an exhibitionist or a pervert?
>>3417227Mary/Marie gave her the birds and the bees talk last thread or at least the this is how girls love girls version. After that I think she can put two and two together why Marie was so fascinated by underwear.
>>3417231After that I think she can put two and two together why Marie was so fascinated by underwear.well yes, but junko isn't Rei. Given how secluded and serious she is, i don't think she will divulge her private life (and whatever things she discovers about herself) to any stranger that appears in front of her. Specially Arc and specially if it involves fancy underwear. Marie would eat her alive if she knew that junko has begun to like fancy stuff.
>>3417235I meant it less like Junko divulging her personal feelings about Yuu and more like accidentally stumbling upon your friend's porn stash. Even if you have similar tastes it's still weird and awkward. Unless your both the bawdy type (Marie and Raye included here), and then, High fives and head nods all around.
>>3417242...oh. the "i do know" part refers to the second to last sentence, not the last one. Now it makes sense.
"Feel free to eat while we talk. The food is for you...I understand you are observing but Sachiko and Natalya have shown no hesitation to endanger the lives of civilians, magical girls, or shadows, if necessary.

I really just want to get everyone on the same page to deal with the common threat. If they have went after us, and Yuuki, they will come after you.""If they have then my sister Natalya would be here.""Sister? Are you related by blood?""No, I should say.....battle sister."Arc starts to eat that Raye serve. Then she looks at you."This has no corruption right?""No I mean why would we?"Arc starts to dispel whatever leftover corruption on the plate and starts eating."I need some answers. What is going on here? I think Sachiko has taken up the work of her father. He was kidnapping girls for some reason, then killed his other daughter, and became a shadow. The original team killed him and Sachiko acted out revenge three years ago. That much is clear, but why create a second team only to start killing us later. I know you and Natalya were there. I know you and Natalya were involved with some sort of shadowy organization; potentially everyone involved was. What is its goals? If they are benevolent, how could they allow the situation in this town to deteriorate so totally?""Hmm.....that is a long story.""I don't mind waiting.""I was also the one who was kidnapped. But I escaped. Them someone found me and trained me to become one. I didn't know I was already a magical girl.......or maybe I didn't because that shit experimented on me. But back then I was a scared little child. Then Natalya found me and quickly became friends. Fast forward 5 years later, I contacted someone. A magical girl. It was via Natalya whom I gave the intel to Yuuki to raid the specific lab."So teaching me some ice parlor tricks was for your own personal business?[/red]"And it stopped but it's not sunshine and rainbows for everyone. Someone must have got the notes. And now she is probably using it to do something. I mean, Natalya. A former agent from our organization. And the girl who thought that we murdered his father. She would come to the organization and destroy it but she needs a lot of power hence killing you in a process to make her stronger. Sorry if I cannot give you a detailed story. It's.....a traumatic experience for me.""So now it goes to a full circle.......First was you escaping from a mad scientist. Then picked up by someone and trained. Then send someone to do your work and now got killed in the process because they thought the organization sent them to do it and now.....she is going after your organization. Is that correct?"Arc nods.(1/2)
>>3417276"Furthermore, who are these three individuals. My benefactor has managed to reach out to someone or someones involved in magic. Are they threats? Should I take precautions?""As long as you don't target them then all is well. It's not that they arrived in the country yet. And also I don't know them. But it would be a matter of time.""Could you examine my friend Yuu, I believe you met before, and our junior member Kanna. I thought I saw traces of corruption on Yuu while she was transfusing hope energy to Kanna, yesterday. I can't seem to pick it up.""Huh? What? Really?" Both Kanna and Yuu repliesArc holds their head and closes his eyes. Then a few seconds later she retracts them...."Any leftover corruption in them are now cleansed but I cannot remove the negativity inside them. It whats makes the person a person. Only a crazy fool thinks he is happy all the time.""Is there another way to produce a magical girl besides a hope essence. I have a prospective member for the team but I had to use the hope essence I had to deal with some of Natalya's handiwork"""Why? But to answer your question.....I think it's a secret. A secret I don't know about."You sigh....but you moved on....."How can we make you help us. What are your conditions?""What about this....I'll help you track Sachiko and Natalya for you and that's it. It is up to you how you will deal with them. Is that acceptable? Like I said, I am now an observer now. I hope you would understand.">Accept?>No (Make demands?)>Write-in

>>3417282>”If you need funds. My benefactor can help. Furthermore, we could find a more secure place for you to set up base.

But when she rips off a person full of positivity, she gains an emotional feeling and powers. I'll go out now before she became crazy from over charging."Arc immediately runs out of the house while you try to stop her as you have too many questions to ask. Opening you phone, you called Okada.""Okada the bag and costume?""Ready""Drop it off at your yacht and we will pick it there."You drop the call and face the group."While my plan it to train again to further our teamwork I think this could be dangerous if left unchecked.""So Junko what should we do?">Find a master list of missing person>Call Arc to aid the search>Look for spots where the police where missing and start tracking>Drop off the wharf and get Yuu gear.>Write-in

Everyone replied."Then let's go everyone."Yuu and Kanna goes away first while you grab your phone again and call Arc."Arc, we will help you search Natalya, give us some clues how to find her.""Then search someone who has a cold hope energy.

>>3419407You felt a cold sensation at the slums area where it was cleverly hidden with the amounts of corruption. "Girls I found her location. We need to go to the slums and fast before more people are gonna be victims."Everyone goes out of your house and move to the slums. You texted Yuu that you're going to the slums and meet you there............At the slums you look for something where Natalya would go and made a base. You also had the possibility that Sachiko is with Natalya. Slowly you see a building tenement with 5 storey building threatening to collapse. There is an underground parking which is already half covered from the concrete debris.>Start your search on the underground parking>Start your search on the rooftop going down>Scout the area first for traps>Call Arc, you found Natalya.....maybe>Wait for Yuu to arrive>Write-in
>>3419466>>Wait for Yuu to arrive. She has Kanna with her and Kanna's eyes.>Scout the area for less specialized traps and get a general idea of the building and surrounding terrain.>>Call Arc, you found Natalya.....maybe
>>3419466>Send the shadowshades to scout the area.
Considering Natalya has mostly taken the cities' finest hostage (and we know the cops are corrupt or incompetent. Hopefully she has Mako's "boyfriend's" dad) we might want to consider demolishing the building so that it collapses into the parking garage with Natalya inside of either.
>>3419500Lets leave that as plan "D", because she can kidnap any random citizen that was unlucky enough to be nearby. The shadowshades should be able to safely scan the area without raising any suspicion and can relay whatever information they obtain back to us.
>>3419530I agree, I just can’t help but feel this is is a trap for us to enter either building and it explodes on us for daring to have the idea. If we can hide the shadowshades due to the corruption masking the area, they can act as fine remote cameras, but we should wait for everyone to get here before entering the buildings. Especially Yuuki and Arc. Their teleports would be really useful.
>>3419480>>3419490"Hello Arc?""Yes? Found something?""I did but we didn't come it yet. We were waiting for Kanna and Yuu to be here. Right now, Marie and Raye are searching for physical traps around the building.""I found one too but it's just a group of bodies here 6 to be precise.""Mark that location, we need to let the authorities known.""Can we leave them here for now? If we defeat Natalya, the energies sucked will return. I'll go to your position now.""Alright....."Marie and Raye came back from scouting and reported their findings."There are couple of person standing like some kind of zombie. It really unnerves me." Marie reports"I believe that they are just sentries or eyes. I saw a thread like connection inside the the building." Raye reports"So Natalya is here then?""100% yes, but what floor? That's anybody's guess."Kanna, Yuu and Arc arrives on your position away from the building. You tell Kanna to scan whatever she could see on the building."What is the situation Junko?""Arc, there are couple of human surveillance camera who could can see and probably hear and smell us. What can you suggest?""This is bad. This is why she is the best when it comes to protecting VIP's and escort mission. No one has gone past her absolute defense. She can move on the go when needed forcing us to fight the horde.""The horde?""She likes video games that she calls it *The horde* ""Oh! Like that orc brute and the rest of the warband?" Kanna happily replies...."Yeah that.....""What did you see Kanna?""Lots of people inside. More or less 30 in different floors. But the men are concentrated in the basement." Kanna reports.Arc closes her eyes and says."I know what she is planning. Stay here everyone. It would be the best.>Wait we will come whether you like it or not>What why?>We'll stay here then, call us if you need backup>Write-in

>>3421256>“Arc, what are you planning?”>We'll stay here then, call us if you need backup.>On the meanwhile, lets see if we can find vantage pointsWhen out of earshot of Natalya's forces call Okada and tell him to be ready to protect the civilians. The Yacht is also blessed with a hope barrier if they need to get out of town.
>>3421256Also>Tell Arc that Natalya can block teleports just in case she doesn’t know that.
>>3421313I don't think a hope barrier will deter the magical girls.
>>3421371It won't, it just keeps them from detecting Okada once he is there.I wanted to set up another base, especially a mobile one just in case of compromise.
>>3421382What could deter the magical girls is having the ship sail out into international waters while the group is fighting them.
>>3421444“Arc, what are you planning?”"She is springing a trap for you Junko. She will seal you even if it kills her. I will spoil the fun on her and when that happens, You can move in and go for Natalya.""We'll stay here then, call us if you need backup."Arc summons a spear with a flag in it and jam it on the concrete."This is my real spear, if the flag disappear leaving a polearm, you can now go inside. Take the pole arm too while you're at it. It will lead you to where I am possibly where we are fighting.""Alright.....we got it. Best of luck then."You watch Arc jumps out of the position and into the building, your group watch the spear flag fluttering against the wind................You are Agent Codenamed: Arc. And your former partner is doing a nasty trick even after these years. You left the group hoping that you will resolve it yourself, interrogate and apprehend her to drag her back to the organization where she will be undergo her 5th behavioral correction. As far as you know, it was a very nasty method that you don't want to think about. Nearing the building, you can now see where most of the mindbroken people really converging on the basement. But is that a trap? You know that she can cast illusions that is too good to be true. But you have your own tricks on your sleeves too.>ARC SKILLS>EYES OF TRUE SIGHT: Arc eyes will never see deceit or illusions.

>>3421618You elect to dispel them even if it trips Natalya knowing someone is dispelling her "eyes" around the building. One by one they drop like dolls cut from the strings of a puppeteer. You keep at it until there are 6 of them remaining where you see Natalya in the middle of the room still casting."Natalya, you are under arrest for terrorism and betraying the organization. You will be undergo a level 5 behavioral correction in our HQ. Surrender now Natalya.""And you expect me to say yes?""I was hoping.""What about no?""Thought so......""You pea brained little shits, go attack her, I'm almost finish with what I do here.""OH NO YOU DON'T"You rush in where you......>Focus of dispelling Natalya strings to free them>Ignore the hostage and go straight to Natalya and stop the sealing ritual>Write-in

>>3421804\You jump off the hostages and try to attack Natalya. Of course if it was that easy, you would be done here."ICE WALL"A wall of ice comes in front of you walling you a few short meters in front of Natalya."The reason I pick basement is because there are only two things you can go to. Either you go back to the ground floor and run through the door behind my back or you could start chipping the ice which, feel free to do so.""Why are you doing this Natalya?""I'm sick of being a fucking doll to that organization. I want to be free damn it!""This is not the way you are going to be free. You are just making more problems.""Then I will make more problems until the organization will be too tired to deal with them.">Use Thunder Spear (meelee? range?) to break the wall>Use Sonic Thrust to break the wall>Run back outside and to the back door>Destroy the ceiling and into the other side>Write-in
>>3421829>Give the wall a few thrusts to fool natalya, then destroy the ceiling and bomb dive into the other sideNatalya might guess that we are going to go trough the ceiling, but unless she walls all of it, she won't be able to know from where we're gonna pop up.
>>3421829>Give the wall a few thrusts to fool natalya, then destroy the ceiling and bomb dive into the other sideThe thing we have to be careful of is the unstable nature of this building
>>3421848As long as we don't damage the pillars, it should be fine. Actually, Natalya is helping the building with her wall.
>>3421829>Give the wall a few thrusts to fool natalya, then destroy the ceiling and bomb dive into the other side>>3421858Convinced me
>>3421858>>3421873 The interesting question is where is Sachiko? Is she doing something simultaneously or has she ditched Natalya for being a liability?
>>3421884It would be logical for them to split up. The police primarily wants Natalya and depending on how sashiko thinks, Nat's usefulness is already over and sashiko is using her to get rid of the heat while she escapes, or they are working in tandem and she's either going to jump in, or is doing something else.
>>3421897Exactly what I was thinking. While we're still waiting for QM, what the hell happened to Natalya. It didn't sound like she was always this bad and has almost been mind wiped as many times as Yuu (or one or two more). The organization should know that that will only make a headstrong person worse. I was under the working theory that there was some sort of rivalry between Arc and Natalya and Natalya felt she could never best Arc. Still being a teenager at the time Natalya decided to act out as teenagers can; fall in with the wrong crowd for attention. Her powers made her too good with the wrong crowd and she slowly became what she is now. Not sure how that stacks up with our new info but I still thing Junko might be able to give her a job opportunity considering how things play out
>>3421927>Junko might be able to give her a job opportunity If by that you mean, killing her and overriding her being with a shadow, yes. She tried to kill our mom and our friends. Misguided teenager or not, she's not getting out alive.Also, i'm confused about their ages. Unless sashiko, arc and natalya are 17~18+, the new information doesn't quite add up unless they are REALLY green and everything happened in one year or two at most
>>3421942 yeah I was thinking of turning her into a shadow. I originally saw the scenario playing out as A) Arc goes all out and shanks Natalya a few times B)Sachiko either before or during the attack abandons Natalya C) gravely wounded, Natalya manages to skulk off and goes somewhere to die.D) Junko mangages to find the dying girl and has some sympathy like Junko did for Mari. Junko knows what it's like to die in agony all alone. So she give Natalya the option to become a shadow or to keep Natalya company as she dies. The only thing that complicates this is the organization took Natalya's emotions away so she can use hope energy, which is the not the smartest idea. Natalya is college aged(18,19,or maybe 20), she is just passing herself off as a high school student. Sachiko is 16 or 17. I think Arc is the oldest in her early twenties. We don't know how long Arc was in captivity. Sachiko's father could have held her for years.
Give me a few more minutes.....finishing something.
>>3421988No problem>>3421942 to further elaborate. I was also working under the assumption that Natalya was being manipulated like everyone else. Notice how the airline attack, Kanna, even the ambushes were played like Natalya's ideas and Sachiko was just going along for the ride. AKA how Sachiko operates. I was also working under the assumption that Natalya had emotions and was operating out of some missplaced loyalty to Sachiko for saving her once before and hostility to Arc. I thought with her magical army and magic works how I say it does that she was basically what happens if combined chuuni with actual magical ability and she would brake hard (just like Mari) when reality bit her in the ass. Plus, i don't trust the organization yet. Arc seems okay but mind wiping someone five times is brutal and Junko is not just any shadow but the dark queen. They might not take that well.
>>3421974I disagree with D). On thing is Natalya trying to kill us and our friends, that's acceptable because we know what we're getting into. Another whole different thing is to endanger random civilians and trying to murder your family when they are trying to escape and with us being revenge ande vengeance personified Us taking her over won't be some pretty, painless, quick event. It will be raw brutal and will last a looong time(maybe even going as far as us not killing her and caging her inside like how mari was) specially after what she did.She's basically getting pic related one way or another.oh. i had forgotten the natalya bit. With Arc being 20-22, everything makes sense, i think.>>3422012>Notice how the airline attack, Kanna, even the ambushes were played like Natalya's ideas and Sachiko was just going along for the ride. AKA how Sachiko operates.Sashiko works differently tough, she plants an idea and then lets the group she's in eat itself one by one while she subtly manipulates the rest. If arc's description or Nat is right, she is a sociopath that only finds joy from combat and definitely has no regards for human life. Actually, the only thing that keeps her "loyal" to sashiko is that debt they talked about and that japan is "interesting"; she's basically mary with a higher level of education and more common sense.
>>3422029I had formed this idea before we talked to Arc and knew about Natalya having her emotions stripped through mind wiping (at least I think that's what we learned. Natalya didn't always sound like a sociopath when she was helping Yuuki ect).I think the thing keeping her loyal to Sachiko is that they have the same target as an end goal. The Organization.
>>3421844>>3421848>>3421873Boss calls me for some number figures. I have to crunch some numbers to give because they want it next thing in the morning. Anyway back to writing.
>>3422056You give the wall a few thrusts to think that you are trying to break the wall. Natalya laughs at you."What can you stick do to my wall? All your doing is poking through it." Looking at ceiling, there are little cracks on it. Hoping that the whole floor holds. You try to thrust with all your might, with a running start you see the wall shines a little bit reinforcing the wall. But you didn't hit it. Instead, you jump up and into the ceiling. and rush to the other side. Then some icicle juting up in the floor making you dodge and away from the other side of the wall. The you see another wall forms albeit slowly. With some spikes coming at you and the wall slowly closing in, you need to move fast.>Roll 1d100-10

Rolled 31 - 10 (1d100 - 10)>>3422063
>>3422039I don't think they have the same target. The girls(as far as we know) are the ones that killed Sashiko's father, meanwhile natalya wants to break free from their grasp.
>>3422071>"So now it goes to a full circle.......First was you (Arc) escaping from a mad scientist. Then picked up by someone and trained. Then send someone (Sakura's team through Yuuki) to do your work and now got killed in the process because they (Sachiko and Natalya) thought the organization sent them to do it and now.....she (Sachiko) is going after your organization. Is that correct?">Arc nods.Arc also mentioned that Sachiko is amassing power to go after the organization but I forgot where it was in the text.

>>3422067>>3422068>16With ease, you dodge it left and right like a dancer with your partner, a dangerous spikes of ice trying to stab you. You weave and jump, run and dodge until you easily pass the wall and punch it below. There you see Natalya still casting the seal."It's over Natalya.""Maybe......"The hole you made seals above."But at least, you're going with me......right partner?""Don't you dare!!".............You're still waiting at the vantage point where the flag is still fluttering in the wind. Marie and Raye are doing catch with a ball of corruption. Kanna and Yuu are throwing rocks at the can they have set on the other side of the building. You on the other hand, still standing you feet tapping at the concrete."When does Arc need our help?" You mused...."Well she is powerful, might as well let her have the heavy load." Kanna throws a stone and missed"True, but still I'm worried. We haven't heard about her." Yuu throws and it plonks on the can."Wohoooo I win!" Yuu celebrates."Nooooooo my savings again." Kanna drops down in all fours defeated.Then the flag disappeared and then replaced with an iron pole. "Everyone! The flag is gone. Let's go."Marie throws the ball and Raye eat it. Yuu, helps Kanna up and you try to pick up the pole which is too hard to pull."Everyone help me here."Everyone is in your back and you tell all of them to pull."PULL!!! Now again PULL!!! Once more PUUUuuuuuuAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!"The iron pole goes straight to the building with the rest of the girls at the back holding on their dear life. Then you see a whole area of ice. The ceiling is broken and when you go peek, the whole area is also full of icy spikes and another pillar of ice which is probably the hole that Arc break out from.>Natalya is nearer, break the ice near her>Arc comes fist, start digging.>Call Okada, flamethrowers for everyone>Write-in

>>3422099>>3422103>>3422108You spawn your shadowshades and instruct them to take positions above and around the building. All of them nods and disappear to shadows assuming post around the building."Raye come and help me firestorm Arc out of this Ice. Marie, call Okada ask if he has some flamethrowers to deal with this ice. See if he has any updates on Sachiko, uu, Kanna see if you can feel Sachiko's hope energy. I want to know if she is on the way. Girls keep alert and when you're all done, come help us."All of them starts doing their thing. You and Rei starts firestorming the Ice. The ice slowly melts making into a puddle of water in your feet. Halfway there you go past Natalya who is still frozen and now near Arc."Junko, we have some flamethrowers here.""Then start helping us."Kanna and Marie start blowing flamethrowers but they are too amateur to handle one that Marie got almost burned her hair off. Then Marie hair starts to grow back."Remind me to shave you bald Kanna.""S-sorry, I'll put this down then.""Then, don't mind if I do pick up these then." Yuuki picking up the flamethrower."Girls, do not direct the flame to the body instead burn the ice around them. We will thaw them after this."After a little while, you have two blocks of ice where Natalya and Arc is still frozen in place."So what are we gonna do?">Let's move them too....(Where?)>Write-in
>>3422149>Someone call Okada and get a utility van to load Natalya into. Tell him to put some blankets and towels, Water bottles--same stuff we used on Kanna. Marie, do you have anything that would fit Arc and is warm? Tell him to put that in there too.>We should try to thaw Arc. She may need medical attention.>Yuu, did you put up that hope barrier on the Yacht. We could take Natalya there or back to the mansion if it is closer.>Kanna can you see any sort of trackers or anything on Natalya herself. She might have let herself get captured.>Call Nagi once Arc is thawed to set up another hospital trip.
>>3422149>Also if we head to the Yacht ask Okada to send over our "tool kit" and maybe some over-proof vodka or alchol in the van. (we might want to play with fire) We might get a chance for some interrogation and conversion.Come on phone is ovenproof really even a commonly used term anymore? Most glassware would be marked as just Microwave or dishwasher safe these days.
>>3422149Actually after checking the maps again. The Mansion is closer and it is probably more secure anyway if Natalya doesn't have a tracker on her.>Take Natalya back to the mansion
>>3422149>Call okada and tell get us two vans. One for natalya and one for Arc>Check if the girls(arc in particular) are alive.If they are:>Immediately thaw Arc>Arc goes to the hospital and we go with Natalya to the nearest safehouse.If they aren't:Bring both girls to the nearest safehouse
>>3423746"Hello Okada?""Yes my queen?""We need a van here. Two in case. Must be large.""Then a move-in truck would be better then.""That, also load it with some blankets and towels, warm water bottles too. And some clothes.""Alright, consider it done.""Yuu, did you coated the Yacht with barrier right?""Yeah, I did have some difficulty because i need to fill every gaps before it is completely coated but I manage to do it.""Good.....Kanna, see anything on Natalya's body?""No, nothing of sort."Come one Raye, let's slowly thaw Arc.Both of you then use the firestorm to slowly melt the ice until you can remove it by hand. Arc immediately breathes loudly sucking as much air as she could. Then you slowly remove her from her icy prison her hand shaking from the intense cold."T-th-that b-bi-bitch.....sh-she's tu-trying t-to ki-kill her-herself. J-ju-junko.....t-try n-not t-to let her d-die, b-becaus-se her core....is with S-sachiko."The two trucks arrive where a shadowspectre drives. Opening the back, the heat blast in your face."Load her in the truck. With luck, she would be melted when we get back to the mansion."The shadowspectre nods and loads Natalya into the truck where she would be transported to the mansion."Come Arc, let's go to the hospital."You then ride the other truck where she is given towels and some warm bottles to make her body heat slowly return."Arc what do you mean her core is with Sachiko.""Natalya.....is not a magical girl in conventional reason....she has a catalyst.....that makes her one. When I recover.....I will forcibly take it back. And I will hold onto it.""For now rest Arc, also don't sleep.....not until we arrive to the hospital.The truck goes speeding through the hospital as fast as possible........................>*at the hospital*"I must say Junko....you awfully bring a lot of girls with hypothermia or having exposed to extreme cold. Pray tell, are you involve in that supernatural something something?>No....that is absurd>No....just your imagination>No...,just no>No....?>No
>>3423805>"I must say Junko...Who is asking that question? Dr. Nagi or just some nurse or receptionist.
>>3423805>Deadpan: "Yes.">No. Of course not.So natalya works as a lich of sorts then? At least in regards of her magical power.
>>3423805>Deadpan: "Yes.">No. Of course not.if it is Dr. Nagi>"Although Doctor, you have examined me. You saw the results for yourself. Could you come up with any other answer to explain my condition.">"Dr. Nagi, while I'm here I'm curious about the condition of another patient. An older woman brought in with severe weakness and some type of heart problem. I refereed her daughter to bring her here and Okada is covering the treatment.">"There is something else I would like to talk about in private. I might know something that could help your research." so Sachiko has Natalya's core and we can't kill her, but what would happen if we corrupt her? I think that counts as killing as far as how shadows work. I didn't want to bring that up with Arc but we might need to ask.
>>3423862SpoilerI was thinking the same thing. With enough shadow powermako dumping her endless energies on her basically We could sever the connection between her core and the body by brute force alone and create a new servant.
>>3423902I was thinking her hope core would either become useless to Sachiko or Natalya recovered it she wouldn't be able to use it.I am also interested in examining her with Sakura and some interrogation with Yuu's absolute truth detector. We are still missing many details on three years ago and what this organization is up to.
>>3423829It's Dr. Nagi
>>3423914i mean, if we corrupt her, we should be able to dig out all the information we want from her. the only problem would be that shashiko will be able to use Natalya's core on herself. Not that much of a problem, given that she is only one, but its still something to consider.
>>3423927>CoreThat was what I wanted to ask about. If Sachiko could use the catalyst or if Natalya's condition has some sort of feedback loop with it. If corrupting her would corrupt the core as well. Sachiko has no use for a corruptive essence.
>>3423935i don't know if there should be a feedback loop. Maybe the catalyst works as a single way transmitter that just pumps our the hope energy that Natalya requires at the moment. If that's the case, well... we could use it on mako
>>3423937"No. Of course not."Dr. Nagi glares at you like some kind of creepy stalker while you remain with you stoic face."Although Doctor, you have examined me. You saw the results for yourself. Could you come up with any other answer to explain my condition. Anyway, Dr. Nagi, while I'm here I'm curious about the condition of another patient. An older woman brought in with severe weakness and some type of heart problem. I refereed her daughter to bring her here and Okada is covering the treatment.""We are still looking for her condition. According to our cardiologist, it was a rare something something. To be honest it's not my field but if they would recklessly do a heart operation. It has 90% fatality rate which is why they are studying it. Probably he's gonna make a research paper out of it to further his knowledge about hearts.""I see, There is something else I would like to talk about in private. I might know something that could help your research.""Who would it might be?">Who? (Write-in?)
>>3423976wait, we have someone that could help with her research?
>>3424015Immunity from the shadow of plague>>3423976>"Let's go to your lab. Remember Privacy.">"The who is me, as for the something I was speaking of: Look back about two months ago for a series of case files on sick children from close to the industrial zone and the slums. Mysteriously they all seemed to get better out of the blue. If you don't want to go down the rabbit hole of the supernatural now is the time to voice your reservations.">"I was the one that dealt with the thing causing it and it gave me certain properties in regards to resistance to diseases. It was a shadow of plague.">"I would like to help you, but you need to come up with some better experiments. I have more people you can test. Remember I mentioned house calls. Call your employer Okada. He can help you set something up. Although it might be a while we managed to capture the thing responsible for all of the hypothermia cases and she is a real piece of work.">"Be careful with this information because of the ice certain people are looking into this city and it would cause problems if you started blabbing about magic and shadows. It may cause problems for you and for me."
>>3423976adding on >>3424055>"Oh and what's your thoughts on magical girl shows when you were young? Ever wanted to be one? I don't have the components right now but would you consider it? The more and more I have to deal with in the field the more I realize I need a good medic. I wonder if your medical training would rub off on any powers you might develop. Obviously your research and career would come first but a lot of girls get in trouble out there and need help. I was one of them.">"Oh, and I'm sorry for acting like a jerk to you the last time we talked. Sometimes I can't help myself. Thank you for helping my friends."
>>3424055...Knowing that doesn't really help her at all. And if she makes some medicine based on us, well, she's spreading our corruption, not that i mind, but i'm sure there are invisible powers that keep these kind of things from happening, otherwise the shadows would have taken over the world a long time ago.
>>3424103I wasn't thinking of spreading corruption, more reverse-engineering how the plague shadow or our immunity ability works to create a watered down version in drug form.If the answer is corruption, how much disease is actually caused by that vs. traditional factors. I might still be operating to close to the assumption that magic obeys certain rules so you could look at it scientifically.
>>3424117>I might still be operating to close to the assumption that magic obeys certain rules so you could look at it scientifically.You can, but chances are that because defense mechanisms are based on corruption, a cure will also have corruptible qualities.
Sorry that took so long. Just got home from that long meeting. Anyway, writing.
>>3424376"Let's go to your lab. Remember Privacy.""Alright, follow me."You follow Dr. Nagi to the end of the corridor and on the left where you found her first. Back then, you were terrified due to a shout made you panic. Now looking at the messy room, you see that there isn't any camera or any surveillance. Maybe she made this into her own room.""We're safe here from any eavesdropper if you worried about something.""The who is me, as for the something I was speaking of: Look back about two months ago for a series of case files on sick children from close to the industrial zone and the slums.

Meanwhile natalya is unfreezing and probably regaining her strength and she tried to kill our mom, as well as us. Its the perfect time to get some good old fashined revenge.
>>3424465>NagiShe has already seen that Junko appears to be dead to conventional medial testing and We have her employer. If she started to sing we could have her removed from her job in an embarrassing way or at worst kill or corrupt her.I agree we should deal with Natalya we should just get all the information before we do something that could accidentally help Sachiko. I'm down for some fun times it's been too long since we've had some revenge.
I'll probably continue this tomorrow. Gonna sleep early....
>>3424577No problem. Thanks for running QM
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>3424414>>34244291 - let her go2 - stop her
>>3424055There’s a big problem with that idea. We are DEAD. Killing your patients so that they can’t die from disease is a very hard sell.
>>3424404What happened with those blood samples you took? I should probably get rid of them while here.
>>3425089I was w a reverse engineered cure wouldn’t be the full shadow experience. Although it does raise a fair point. Why would Junko have any immunity 1 ability that blocks disease if she has been dead this entire time. I’m still not sure Junko is really dead it seems more like corruption avoids being caught by mortals Nagi forgot what was in them and the vials were thrown out.
>>3425338>Why would Junko have any ability that blocks disease if she has been dead this entire time.Pic related. Also, Junko's not dead, because her biological functions still work, even if they are being sustained by different means.
>>3425362Like I said my whole idea to let Nagi re-examine Junko was based on idea that magic is like any other science and obeys some set of rules to a degree. I had forgotten that we edged closer to pic related in the last few updates. I agree with you. I don’t think Junko is dead, she is just undergoing some funky stuff that allows her to mess with scans/tracking all the usual magical girl stuff.
>>3425338I know they were grown out. I was voting that so that we figure out there’s a possible shadow festering wherever the samples ended up. I’m personally assuming they got incinerated which would make the problem solve itself, but it’s kind of a good idea to make sure there isn’t a shadow monster in the middle of a hospital. Whatever is coming from the patients is bad enough, but most hospital workers are drug addicted,deepssed, and some other issues I can’t recall off the top of my head. Being a doctor means that anytime you take a vacation you realize in the back of your mind that people are literally dying because you needed some “me time.”
>>3425515Chances are that there is some sort of medical "secret division" that deals with corruption and whatever monster that is too visible to ignore.
Thank God internet came back.... anyway writing.
>>3425831You decide to let her go for a moment. but you called her before she disappear out of the door."Remember, if you are interested, don't hesitate to go on Okada's mansion."The door closes and you and left alone in Nagi's messy room. With nothing to do, you elect to go out of her room and visit Arc's room. After a little while, you can hear shouts behind the door. Opening it is the nurse and Arc arguing where Arc wants to get out of the bed."Please lie down in bed, you just recovered from hypothermia and also if you keep moving your body extremely your gonna experience shock that may paralyze you body forever.""I say, I'm not an ordinary human who get those illness thingy so get me out I have a lot to do.""You stay and that is final.""No, you can't stop me.">Listen to the nurse Arc>Politely excuse the nurse>Wait, where are the girls?>write-in

If we can't kill Natalya could we corrupt her?>Arc if your not at one-hundred percent don't go charging out of here after Sachiko. Sometimes it's best to bide your time and wait for help...>Wait, where are the girls?>Mental Link: Call Marie. What's going on? We need to start heading back to the mansion to deal with Natalya.
>>3426072You approach the two calming them."Arc, Ma'am, please calm down.Nurse, let me talk to my friend in private for a second?""Oh? Are you the one who bring her right? Please tell her that she should be asleep.""I'm fine damn it!""A-anyway, I'll tell her to stay. Please...."The nurse nods and glare at Arc then she goes out the door. You remove your hold on her shoulders and she sits on the bed."We need to go to the mansion. The girls gone first. Seems Natalya broke out from the ice she made herself."Damn it, this is what you are fearing."Let's go then."The two of you goes to them mansion as fast as you could......................Arriving at the mansion, you called Marie telepathically. >"Marie, what is happening.">"Natalya broke out from her own prison. We are holding her out but it would be a matter of time before she break out and inform Sachiko from our location. Mako already coated the room with corruption to make any kind of hope energy to be blocked out. Yuuki also helped. We are at the basement quick!">"We'll be there.""Arc, follow me. They are at the basement."Running down the stairs 2 floor below, you see them fighing Natalya who is busily dodging an overwhelming enemy."Wait, she is making a fucking portal.""Huh?""You can't see it? Maybe it is drowned with too much corruption. Anyway, I'll go erase the seal and you attack and distract Natalya."You nod and you go straight at Natalya who is surprised to see you."Fuck.....the queen bitch is here.""Hah! Same to you Ice bitch."Both of you fight as your teammates doing the best as they can to fight Natalya. Okada shouts at you."My queen. Raye, Yuuki and Kanna we're pulled out because they we're injured. Only me and Yuu are doing the best as we can to not let her get out of there. What are your orders my queen?"You see Yuu trying to catch up her breath. In the corner, Arc starts to erase whatever she saw.(Seal Removal progress 0/3)>Distract her by asking question or interrogation>Distract her by fighting her>Distract her by Okada's shadowspectre while you look for ways to subdue her>Write-in
>>3426153>Distract her by fighting her
>>3425530As fun as the idea is. I think. It’s more likely that shadows aren’t normally allowed to get to the level that they are in this city and weak plague types can be stopped by mundane methods. Eg. Septic tank showed that mundane means CAN harm them, so due to the nature of plague types essentially using single cell corruption vectors, most means of disinfection end up destroying the weak shadows.Stress and mood are also already known to medical science as having an effect,so even if corruption is not known about, medical science may actually have massive amounts of data concerning all of this and simply came to mundane conclusions.I am sort of curious about what the implications for HeLa cells is in universe as a result of this.
>>3426197>the implications for HeLa cells is in universe as a result of this.I'm afraid i don't connect the dots. Are you implying that that poor HeLa is not only "alive" but also conscious enough to feel and spread corruption through her cells?
>>3426153>Distract her by fighting her.>Have shadows of your own and Okada's help.
>>3426153adding on >>3426307>Marie, where are you? if you are with the other girls how are they.>Sakura get ready to help out if I'm in over my head
>>3426209Gonna give more background since many might not even know what HeLa cells are)In was thinking more like her regeneration is actually magical in nature rather than a mutation and a few other things. Mrs Henrietta lacks was a black woman that died of cancer in the 1950s due to a general lack of treatment for reasons I’m sure we can all guess on account of it being 1950s America. Her cancer cells were discovered to be immortal and literal tons of them are used In medical research to earn billions of dollars without a single dime being paid to the family.Now the implications of a universe with corruption are when you consider our own regeneration and the myriad number of horrific experiments done on black people through the centuries.So the implication here is that her cell immortality might mean she’s one of the early prototypes for what we are currently. Science doesn’t go in leaps and bounds but slowly building upon the past. Sachiko’s father couldn’t possibly have come up with EVERYTHING he learned on his own. He had to have a base to start from and the US was in full hire mad scientists and use civilians as fines pigs mode back then.
>>3426182>>3426307You summon your Shadow shades and you also called Okada's Shadowspectre. You order them to surround her and keep attacking while avoiding her strikes. You move in, trying to get a hit but she dodges everything like some kind of ballerina dancing to the violent combined attacks of yours. Still your job is to distract so you are going to make her move as far as possible to Arc(Seal Removal progress 1/3)>Roll 1d100-10 for combat

>>3426373for an iOS device you need to add a space so it would be dice+1d100- -10 then delete the added space. Ios autocorrects the -- into a solid minus sign.not a bad idea we could also use binding slash.
>>3426373blame SFUSv60J for that. he's the one that wanted to talk with nagi, but i disgress.>If she’s dodging everything then we just have to do something to induce blindness or vertigo, Right?...Yes. We could try to bind her, or maybe use the homing sword bolt to keep her distracted. Maybe use firestorm? We're in the basement and it surely has a lot of things that go boom.
>>3426393Despite you best efforts she recovers quickly even taking out your shadowshades. Although Okada's shadowspectre we're more powerful than yours, they still had a hard time closing in as Natalya easily slings spells left and right.

>>3426527The continue onslaught of you three is too much for Natalya. With your combat speed, Mary raw power and both Yuu and you pressuring Natalya is too much for her. Then Arc slings a spell at Natalya."THUNDER BLADE!!"Natalya was hit on her shoulder and got stuck on a pillar the shocks making Natalya spasms a little bit sucking her power out of her system. Arc slowly walks on Natalya where she is leaning on the pillar."Give it up Natalya."Natalya can only sigh and raise her hands in defeat."Thank you girls, I'll take it from here. Gonna catch up a plane and go back to our headquarters. But since she did make a ruckus here I will entertain one thing you want to do with her. And I have the reserve to veto anything you request if it is too outrageous. And my lips are sealed, I'll just write a report where I apprehended Natalya somewhere in the forest hiding. Scouts honor.">"My queen, let's corrupt both of them. They know too much about us.">"Mary, that is too risky, but I'll think about it.">Don't let them escape, both of them>Name your demand for Natalya (Write-in)

>>3426536>>Name your demand for Natalya>"I was going to try to corrupt her into one of us but I figure that you immediately veto that Arc.">"So if that's no, how about you let me interrogate her? ">"Also Arc if you could help me heal my team if possible. There is only so much I can do for my Magical girls. I did save you twice.">What about Natalya's catalyst. Sachiko sill has it. We should probably recover that. Could I use that to make a girl have similar powers to what ever the hell Natalya is?>Yuu get your skill ready. Absolute truth detector.anybody have any other ideas?
>>3426555some good old torture along with ripping out her memories(or at least the ones that are related to us) and experimenting with her.
>>3426560Hey I'm down. The question is will Arc play along or is she going to be a girl scout.. Plus I want to get Arc away long enough to ask Natalya questions about the organization under the absolute truth detector. (Since we know Natalya wanted away from them for some reason.) Then we can decide if we want to keep playing along with Arc or not.I wonder if Okada has an engine hoist in that garage. One of the things I was thinking requires someone suspened Natalya from above. That and a large tub. Waterboading is a little played out. Let's scale it up with a saltwater Ice bath.
>>3426536Adding on.>Mental link: "Mary can you switch back with Marie for a second. I want to know how bad Raye, Kanna, and Yuuki got injured. What the hell happened while I was gone. Let me guess, she dispelled your bind spells, right?"
>>3426562I was thinking about ripping her nails and maybe give her a blood eagle. That should wreck her regeneration enough for us to get some answers out of her. But to be honest, I'd rather use the time we have for torture and developing new abilities because we can steal Nat's memories. No need for yuu to be present and be traumatized again.Only Mary, Raye, us and a notebook that keeps track of how high can natalya scream (along with many other experiments, like can we plant a corruption seed inside her without arc noticing? or, can a magical girl regrow organs? How much corruption can a magical girl forcibly take before it begins to tax her? You know, important things that might help us in the future)
>>3426598>traumatize Yuuwe could always ask the questions with Yuu and then send her upstairs to dote on Kanna and Raye while we start the torture.
>>3426552>>3426555>>3426565"She's gonna pay for what she did to our moms. I was going to try to corrupt her into one of us but I figure that you immediately veto that Arc.""Oh? that is....one thing I will veto immediately yes.""NO PLEASE CORRUPT ME!! I DON'T WANNA GO BACK!!""Shut up!"Arc slapped Natalya which made her unconscious."What about Natalya's catalyst. Sachiko sill has it. We should probably recover that. Could I use that to make a girl have similar powers to what ever the hell Natalya is?""I already had it. The one Sachiko is holding now is fake. I put it a little bit of hope energy on it to make it convincing. But I didn't have to put it too much or she will notice that the energy is not from Natalya but from another girl. Anyway your request is?""Arc if you could help me heal my team if possible. There is only so much I can do for my Magical girls. I did save you twice. Let me interrogate her, no in fact.I want her for 8 hours. I'm not gonna tell you what i'm gonna do to her, but i'll assure you that her natural regeneration should take care of whatever I do.""I don't mind but don't kill her. As long as she is still breathing when the 8 hours is up, I'm fine about it. So where are your girls are?""Mary can you switch back with Marie for a second. I want to know how bad Raye, Kanna, and Yuuki got injured. What the hell happened while I was gone. Let me guess, she dispelled your bind spells, right?""She was too slippery that I can't land anything on that girl. Oh well at least she is now sleeping.""Go to where the others are and guide Arc there."Marie nods and urge Arc to follow her."Arc!"Arc stops."Not a word, or I'll hunt you and your organization to the ends of the world.""I would not dream of fighting you too Junko. You.....are probably the only thing that scares me the most,""As long as you understand."Arc resumes following Marie and disappears on the basement."Okada, is the room available?"Okada who is now wearing a construction hard hat while the other shadowshades are now trying to repair the damaged battlefield notice you calling him."Ah yes, it's still there.""Yuu, carry her."Yuu hefts her up carrying her in piggyback. Both of you entered the room which the state of the room where you tortured Rei last time is still there. Yuu who is now visibly concerned about the various devices beside the chair which she puts Natalya as comfortable as possible."J-Junko....are you....">Call Marie for another torture session>"Yuu, if you don't like you gonna see, I suggest you get out of this room immediately because it will be ugly.">Wake your princess>Write-in
>>3426605OR we just rip out her memories. that will work better than the lie detector and arc already told us that she wants her alive and uncorrupted. that's a lot of room to wiggle in>>3426608>Call Marie for another torture session>"Yuu, i'm gonna make her pay what she tried to do to our moms and the civilians that were on the plane, and the building, so I suggest you get out of this room because it will get ugly. Very ugly"
>>3426617We couldn't extract Rei's memories with the hope barrier Sachiko put there. Natalya has been mind-wiped multiple times. iIt won't take too long.and 4chan ate my post. fuck.>>3426608>Yuu, I'm going to start by asking Natalya some questions with your absolute truth detector. Afterwards, head upstairs and spend some time with Kanna. I don't want to force you to do anything you're not comfortable with.>Mental Link: Marie, I have an idea for a fun "joke" for Natalya. See if you can find some overproof liquor or rubbing alcohol. Then get a wash tub, the kind you might soak your expensive clothes in before washing them or any kind of tub. It just has to be big enough to fit Natalya and water. Fill it with all the ice and salt you can find. Then fill it up with water. Ask Okada for some shadows to help you carry that and if he has an engine hoist somewhere for working on his cars.
>>3426617The way I am thinking about starting this out is we can send Yuu off after the questions. hook Natalya up to engine hoist by her wrists(which would be connected to her feet in the small of her back), with the chain. then douse her in alcohol and light her on fire. Let her burn for a bit. Then we could kick the fire out or dunk her in the ice bath. Depending on how much Marie over-saturates the salt water soulution we can quite literally rub salt in Natalya's wounds while we wait for her to regenerate between torture methods. Then we go for more exotic stuff. Plus we can chill drinks while we watch her squirm. The best torture is always practical.Raye might want to watch this too depending on how hurt she is.
>>3426608I forgot to add in>>3426620>First, bind Natalya with rope and chains from the garage just to be sure. (Hogtie her)
>>3426620>We couldn't extract Rei's memories with the hope barrier Sachiko put thereWe don't know(and doesn't look like) sashiko did that. It sounds like something Kanna or Yuu did, or, she herself did. >>3426626Eh. Its way easier to just break her extremities with a sledgehammer. It also allows us to experiment on her and gives us a clear indication on her impairment status.
>>3427347>We don't know(and doesn't look like) sashiko did that.Whoever used the ability on Rei is inconsequential. What matters is Rei had weird barriers in her mind and we couldn't siphon her memories There is a possiblity we can't siphon memories from a person who has been mind wiped.I don't understand why we can't take a few minutes to ask Natalya two questions. What happened three years ago and what is the organization and why do you want to get away from it. Then you can stroke your torture bonner as hard as you want. We know Arc lied to our face for some reason (or at the very least is withholding information) and Natalya is dead set on not going back to the Organization and doing what ever it takes to bring them down. Why is important.Plus, we have gotten seemingly similar but somewhat contradictory accounts of three years ago from Sakura, Yuuki, and Arc either QM has changed his mind about how events played out or the Characters are leaving out key details. We have Natalya now and she can't lie. >can we plant a corruption seed inside her without arc noticing?This seems interesting.Arc has vision like Kanna so we could use Kanna to check, if she is conscious. >Sledgehammer.Eh, why not both. Sure it's easier but when is easy fun. Natalya likes freezing people so why not inflict a little hypothermia on her. Junko could always yank Natalya up and down on the chain to see when the bones heal.
I see you seeding a sequel or volume two there QM>>3426608Mind explaining why going back to your little organization scares you more than becoming a shadow? (I figure that this should have been a red flag for us)It sounds like there’s not really anything in this room that can scare you more than they already do. (Ifshe reveals the whole been there 5 times thing and or has a good enough sob story)>I’d actually feel sorry for you if you weren’t being such a crazy bitch that tried to kill my mother. If you broke out 5 times you can break out again just like they’re just gonna catch you again. Cooperate and I’ll make sure there’s nothing left of you for them to take back next time. (If she’s that desperate then she could have committed suicide or turned into a shadow from despair by now.ergo the organization keeps bringing her back for some reason)(After anything else we can reasonably get out of her is done)Now now, we still have some time to waste and I’m afraid that I really can’t trust anything you say even if I can resent them for helping to make monsters like you. Even if you’re more afraid of what they can do, I’m not letting you off that easy for tying to hurt the people I love. Work together with all of the shadows (including Sakura and I’m assuming we aren’t nvolving Kanna and Yuu by this point) to basically inflict a permanent penance stare on her. I think calling the curse empathy should do? Whenever she thinks of anyone that she’s harmed she feels the pain and anguish of what she’s done or s planning to do to them.If/when anyone asks what we did to her we just say that we gave her empathy. I’m sure I forgot more stuff while at work but I think that sets us up to resent the organization as well for making monsters like sachiko and Natalya while not monitoring or controlling them. Once or twice I can almost see, but 5 goddamn times? That’s why don’t you rape the joker level.
>>3428623Shoot i've been found. I have no choice but to write.Writing.....
>>3428789I should probably clarify due to the possible language/grammar barrier that I was still giving her to arc, was just possibly offering Natalya the sweet release of death if she comes back after the latest batch of mind wipes.
>>3426617>>3426620>>3426628"Get your lie detector running. I want to make this quick. And less painful possible."Yuu nods and her hand starts glowing yellow. You try to tie her with chains to prevent her from breaking out. After you got satisfied you start slapping Natalya up."Gwuh?""Good morning ice princess, this is how it gonna work. I ask questions, you answer them. Understand?""What? Where am I?""Fucking answer me you bitch!"Another powerful slap from you made the chair wobble nearly falling her to the floor. She then looks at you now with frightened face.""Oh God......am...am I back in...""You're still in Japan if you're that afraid to go back to them. But you probably be broken when I'm done with you.

And I don't want to talk about it. Can you maybe get me out now? I answered your question.">Start the pain train>Yuu, call Marie and Raye if she is able>Ask more questions (Write-in)
>>3429287>Mental link with marie:"Ask Okada to have a shadow to pick up Kanna's brother and bring him here. Tell him to send two one to drive and one to make sure they aren't being followed. We might need Kanna's eyes and it is a bad idea to split up.">"You think I care if you want to talk? ESPECIALLY when you're not telling me the WHOLE truth. I can sympathize with waking up with your emotions all screwed up and becoming a monster. Yuu can sympathize with losing your memories and emotions. At least for me, my sympathy went out the window when you decided to try TO KILL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY! DOES THAT MAKE SENSE BITCH?">"I gave you the option the easy way or the hard way. You see your friend helped make me into a shadow and this can...be my fix.">Gesture to the tools beside the chair. Pick up and start caressing one of the pairs of pliers and clamp a toe, hard.">"So start talking. What is the organization? Why are you so afraid of them? What are they capable of? What are their goals? What are Sachiko's plans? What is she capable of? Who taught her how to manipulate people--Her father or her mother? Where did Sachiko move her mother? I know Sachiko's mind powers can effect people indirectly how do they work? What are your capabilities? If I can figure out a little about how I work, you should have figured out a little of how you became this way.">"Yuu, if she is lying or leaving anything out stop me immediately. That would call for CORRECTION."
>>3429287Forgot something and came up with something new.>>3429339>Mental link: "Sakura, Natalya says Sachiko RESTORED her memory. Could you check her mind for a weird sort of hope barrier? Natalya might not know she is telling half truths. Would Kanna be able to see something like that if you can't?">One more important question: WHERE IS SACHIKO? WHERE IS SHE GOING?
I feel like I’m forgetting something really important we should be asking. And g t Kanna over here asap. That headache thing sounds Ike Natalya has some sort of self destruct that goes off if she reveals too much.
>>3429778We might be. I can't think of something we missed though. You might want Sakura to examine Natalya more closely than I voted for. Maybe we can figure out what science dad did to her.That's the other reason I want to bring Kanna's brother over. The house is big enough that he shouldn't hear what is going on.I just thought it was from Yuu's truth power hurting Natalya but we can never be too careful.I assume QM is running tomorrow night as usual, and not tonight.
>>3430966There are three general reasons I can think of for the headache.One, bitchslapped into unconsciousness by Arc. This is the most reasonable.Two, Sachiko trusts no one and make it so that Natalya can’t betray her when she “restored” her memories. It only being half truths is why it’s only a headache and not actually splitting in two or some weird agical explosion to take out whomever is getting info.Three)The organization did something when they wiped her to make sure she can’t leak info and sachiko couldn’t erase that programming. A type of geas basically. I’d suggest laying off the sachiko stuff for a moment (maybe healing it?). and seeing how the headache goes if we switch track to the organization. (We don’t have sufficient reason to mistrust them yet so any suspicion would be on sachiko). Then switch back to sachiko and see if it returns. Maybe via asking the same questions again?
>>3432945I had already switched the order of questioning around in my vote >>3429339 >>3429358. consider moving up the "have sakura examine Natalya option" to try and see if we can figure out what is going on.>We don’t have sufficient reason to mistrust them (the organization)I see it differently. I can see Junko mistrusting the organization for several reasons. Arc made a very poor first impression by attacking the girls after knocking out Yuuki. Arc has lied and misdirected Junko several times despite us not withholding any aid. We now know that someone wiped Natalya's memories. If Natalya spills the beans about how many times the organization has wiped her mind. That would raise an immediate red flag. (I have taken that Junko finds brainwashing distasteful ever since we found the journal entry in thread one or two. Even as crazy as Natalya is brainwashing is clearly a poor remedy for her issues.)I am still aiming to corrupt Natalya somehow but the question is how to do it without pissing off Arc. There is a logical in character reason for it besides having more people. Natalya has proven herself a dangerous threat. Just turning her over for reprogramming hasn't worked in the past and is a poor solution as we learned from Sachiko's attempts to do the same to Yuu. Sachiko could either free Natalya again or Natalya can brake out on her own. There are only two real ways to solve Natalya's threat--kill her or try to solve her problem which ,unless Sakura or Kanna can come up with something better, means corruption. I have a hunch that Natalya is a failed attempt at a sentient shadow or something like Junko. When we have created shadows, we stripped away the girl's hope energy and broke their mind before injecting corruption. Natalya had all her emotions stripped away, including the negative ones like anger, making her hard to corrupt in a conventional way. It's like someone went too far in the first step. To that end we need the info from Natalya to either convince Arc to go along with us. We could try to go over Arc's head and attempt a conference with her boss. (If you read between the lines Arc's boss (or her boss's boss) is one of the three people interested in the city and Junko has some clues to put two and two together and realize that the boss already knows about her existence. It wouldn't be the craziest idea to attempt to have a civil first meeting to see where everyone stands and try to lay out some ground rules to avoid a future confrontation.) The third is the cheatyface option of allowing Natalya to corrupt herself. Junko said she wouldn't turn Natalya into a shadow but if Junko corrupted gallons of water and left it for Natalya to drink...Natalya corrupted herself. Arc wouldn't like this but we technically kept our word--just as Arc technically has.
>>3434311My plan was for the pennance stare to do all the work on that front. If she doesnt suicide(probably the organization stopping that for whatever reason) from being forced to feel empathy for her victims, then she’d have to come back to us to beg to have it removed or die. There’s no need for duplicitous wording if we do that to Natalya. Rushing to start an armed conflict when we can calmly state our points and with the moral battle before they try to send in troops is better. Let’s at least get ourselves entrenched in our city so that it matters if we’re removed first. That was the old plan and Okada is sure to have plenty of ways to make the city/government financially invested in keeping us. The organization is its own separate can of worms and I’m treating it as such. The most we need to do with them is prep for the magical girl invasion and threaten to hurt any of them that try whatever mind rewrite crap they did to sachiko and Natalya on anyone in the city. Essentially sending a message that it’s our territory and not their personal playground.
>>3434789>"Marie, call Okada and pick her brother up. We need Kanna's eyes for this thing, after that come here downside. You and me are going to have fun with Natalya.">"Looking forward to that Junko~"You pick a metal pipe leaning on the wall and you test swing a couple of times. You walk closer to her, inching closer to her face menacingly."You think I care if you want to talk? ESPECIALLY when you're not telling me the WHOLE truth. I can sympathize with waking up with your emotions all screwed up and becoming a monster. Yuu can sympathize with losing your memories and emotions. At least for me, my sympathy went out the window when you decided to try TO KILL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY! DOES THAT MAKE SENSE BITCH?"You stab the pipe on her stomach making her dry heave knocking the air out of her. Yuu wince at the display now visibly sweating from the action you made. "I gave you the option the easy way or the hard way. You see your friend helped make me into a shadow and this can...be my fix."You swing the bat at her knees a popping sound could be clearly heard. Natalya howls in pain as she is clearly shaking in pain, tears streaking her cheeks. You drop the pipe down and opened the cloth cover where various tool are lying around. You pick a pair of pliers and clamp in on her toe....hard."So start talking. What is the organization? Why are you so afraid of them? Huh? What are they capable of? What are their goals? What are Sachiko's plans? What is she capable of? Who taught her how to manipulate people--Her father or her mother? Where did Sachiko move her mother? I know Sachiko's mind powers can effect people indirectly how do they work? What are your capabilities? If I can figure out a little about how I work, you should have figured out a little of how you became this way.""FUUUUUUUUUUCK"You rip one of her toenails out of her toe."Wrong answer.""I....I can't""What? did I hear you say you want to rid another toenail.""JUST FUCKING LET ME DIE GOD DAMN IT.""No, I want your sweet sweet voice of pain into my ears and feed me to it. Remember....."You put another pliers on another toe"THIS."You clamp it on her toenails. Natalya shakes her head."IS"You rip it out blood squirting on her feet."MY FIX"Natalya is crying in monotone now her voice losing a voice of emotion. The more you hear it, the more she is like a robot."J-Junko....c-can we take a break? She hasn't gave us info.">Yuu.......stay out if you can't stomach it.>Go to Yuu, get her hand, call to sakura and steal her lie detector>Now Natalya......wanna talk now?>Write-in
>>3434881>Mental link: "Sakura, Natalya says Sachiko RESTORED her memory. Could you check her mind for a weird sort of hope barrier? Natalya might not know she is telling half truths. Would Kanna be able to see something like that if you can't? Actually, examine her in general. I want to know what the fuck that scientist did to her.">Walk up to Yuu, who is behind Natalya. Pat Yuu on the back and whisper--"Sorry.">Now Natalya......wanna talk now?
>>3434881What was that you were saying about how you can’t talk? (Ask Sakura if she knows how to check for or alter brainwashing. Or maybe check on if Yuuki knows anything? We’ll need her help when it comes time to put that curse/grass on her anyway and I’m sure she’d get mad if we didn’t let her get a piece of Natalya or send a video.)Move onto questions about the organization until we can get Natalya’s head examined. Let Yuu heal her up. Kanna probably won’t react well to the blood.
>>3435094>"Sakura, Natalya says Sachiko RESTORED her memory. Could you check her mind for a weird sort of hope barrier? Natalya might not know she is telling half truths. Would Kanna be able to see something like that if you can't? Actually, examine her in general. I want to know what the fuck that scientist did to her."No there isn't one. In fact I cannot detect anything inside her. Maybe this organization has some kind of unique mental hypnosis or something.>"I see....well maybe if we break her, you could peek inside, see if you can find something."Alright but I wouldn't hope on it.You stand up and behind on Yuu. Whispering in her ears you uttered a word."Sorry."Then you return in-front of Natalya who is sobbing monotonously."Now Natalya......wanna talk now? Let me get back on first one. What is the organization?""I...Insufficient permission. I'm no-not authorize t-to answer y-your question."You shake you head and look at Yuu. She nods. Something is stopping her to talk about her former employer."Let's change the question then.....What are Sachiko's plans?""Amass power from you.....and whatever she do after that? I don't know.""Who taught her how to manipulate people--Her father or her mother?""I don't know. You better ask her about that."Where did Sachiko move her mother?"I don't know. Sachiko keeps it to herself."Marie then opens the door. But it's not Marie but rather her other alter ego Mary."My queen! My queen! You called? Cause I'm ready for a symphony of pain and torture you know?""Marie? What the fuck are you saying?" Yuu who is surprised on a sudden 180 degrees of her personality."Where is Kanna?""Still snuggling to his brother. I tried to pry her off but even then, I can't separate them. Even a crowbar got bent 90 degrees. See?"Mary shows a steel crowbar which really bent 90 degrees maybe even higher. Then she nonchalantly tossed the crowbar at the side the steel clanking loudly."So what are we going to do?">Natalya can't give you any info. Excuse Yuu and introduce Natalya to the pain train>Ask more question (what?)>Write-in
>>3435229>Mental link: "Sorry to disappoint you, Mary. I don't think torture is getting us anywhere here. Can you switch to Marie.">Yuu, I'll explain later. I don't think Natalya has anymore answers for us. Get me some medical supplies so I can clean her up. Then clean yourself up and bring Kanna down when she is ready. I'll keep watch. I don't want Natalya going anywhere...sorry for making you see that">Have Kanna examine Natalya, both normally and when asking about the Organization.
>>3435229>Excuse Yuu>Infiltrate her mind like how we did with Mari and Rei. we might have a better chance to bypass her defenses from the inside.We need to erase this interrogation and our encounters from her mind. When the organization discovers that we are investigating them, they will come knocking specially since they will know what we are and how unique our situation is. I'd rather return a Natalya with broken and ripped memories than let them certainly know not only that Okada is a shadow, but all the other secrets that Natalya has seen and heard today.
>>3435310It's worth a shot.>Return NatalyaThat's one of the reasons I have no intention of giving her back.That and the organization has completely failed to contain Natalya in the past. She is better off as a shadow with us.
>>3435332given how regeneration works here, i wonder if we can remove enough parts of her brain, so that the regrown parts hold no information. But i'd suppose that because of the setting the quest is based on, she would retain all of her memores.She is better off as a shadow with us.Hmm, we have a soft stop for redemption arcs, so if digging into her mind doesn't work...we could make a deal with her: "Return to me and i'll give you not only the freedom you seek, but your emotions". Yuuki still hates arc and arc doesn't know that we are allied with her. We could tip yuuki off on arc's future plans. The ensuing chaos might give natalya enough time to flee and should give her enough time to get away from arc (and everyone) or she'll return to us to complete the deal.Obiously, this is a less than ideal plan, but the alternatives aren't nicer either.
>>3435397Arc had a soft spot for Natalya, before Natalya tried killing her. They were friends. (or maybe Natalya didn't kill Arc on purpose) I think we can convince her to go along our plan. Junko definitely has enough reasons to be suspicious of what she just stumbled into
>>3435414We just need to jam her comms before talking with her.
>>3435280>>3435310>>3435332So we just gonna go inside Natalya and erase whatever things that happened here right? Will that include the day she came here? If yes then I'll write it now.
>>3435454not sure how to run it. That's why I wanted Kanna to take a look at her. I would say peek inside and see what we can find out before we start yanking out memories.
>>3435465Alright....I'll write for Kanna to come down. With some healing from Yuu then.
>>3435454I agree with >>3435465. First lets get inside her head and check the options we have before ripping out (or editing) memories, or talking with arc about a third way.
>>3435471"Sorry to disappoint you Mary. I don't think torture is getting us anywhere here. Can you switch to Marie?""Awwwwwwww. Oh well, if you change your mind don't hesitate to call me again~~"Then for a little while, something in her eyes shines. She blinks for a few seconds and then returns an refined and haughty voice."Is it done?""No change of plans Marie, go get Kanna. And also tell her that if she doesn't come here, you won't bring her to meet her favorite band.""Understood."Marie goes out the door and you go to Yuu."I know that this is pretty uncomfortable to you but 'll explain later. I don't think Natalya has anymore answers for us. Get me some medical supplies so I can clean her up. Then clean yourself up and bring Kanna down when she is ready. I'll keep watch. I don't want Natalya going anywhere...sorry for making you see that."Yuu nods solemnly and jogs out the room looking for a first aid kit. There is a long hose where you attach one onto the nearest faucet and open it. You then clean Natalya's bloodied legs, arms and her face. Various cuts from her previous fight are still slowly healing. You also clean the floor with water to wash away the blood from your stunt earlier. Confident that the room doesn't smell blood. Yuu came back with a first aid kit. You let Yuu apply bandages onto the said injuries. Natalya now is full of medical plaster around her arms, legs and face. Then the door suddenly opens and Kanna is running to your side."Wait! The floor is slipp-"But you are too late. Kanna try to stop on your side by skidding but instead she slide towards the end of the room. After a small crash and a sound of pain from Kanna. She returns to your side now carefully walking with a combination of black soot and grime on her face and her body."Kanna reporting for duty! What do you want me to do Junko senpai?""Can we borrow your eyes and see if you can saw something?""Hmmmm......I can only see physically you know? I'm not some kind of an x-ray magician something something because that would be cool if I do.""Kanna, while I appreciate that it's cool to have something like that. But this one is important. Can I trust you with that?""Alright. All I do is stare at her head or something right?""Whatever your eyes can catch Kanna."You go to Natalya and slap her cheek softly. She raise her head shivering from the cold."Awfully ironic that you are feeling cold. Isn't it your power came from the cold itself? Anyway What is the organization? Why are you so afraid of them? What are they capable of? What are their goals?""I....Insufficient permission. I'm not authorize to answer your question.""See anything Kanna?""Nope.....nothing."(1/2)
>>3435596>"Sakura?"Yes?">"I think we going to get inside Natalya's mind."Wait what? You want to dive inside Natalya mental space? I don't recommend it.">"Why?"Did you even hear what she said? She was ripped out of emotions. Naturally if you go inside someone, you'll get drowned or like being killed like some kind of virus or parasite.>"You know awfully a lot Sakura. It's getting suspicious."I'm just guessing you know. Videogames teaches that a lot to you.>"Uhuh.....so wanna go in?".........Fine. But when it's too dangerous, we're going out. Understand?>"Thanks."Now extend your hand onto the head of Natalya.You did as you were told by Sakura.>"Close you eyes and......."A sudden jerk to your body as your mental state was thrown. Then suddenly, you are outside a frozen wall.Hello Junko.....You see Sakura the same time where you last talk. A tall beauty who wears a shrine maiden outfit and an umbrella in her back.Last time you just injecting corruption to make them your minions, now you are diving inside someone to learn something? Awfully adventurous of you Junko. Not minding the dangers of something inside another person's mental state.>"Yet you are here Sakura. What is your excuse."I JUST DON'T WANT YOU TO DIE HERE YOU KNOW!! HMPH!While you can see Sakura trying to pout cutely, you watch the high rising wall of ice which extends to god knows where.So what are you gonna do?>Let's explore for now>Come back I think we cannot get on the other side of this wall>Call someone?>Write-in
>>3435602>>Let's explore for now
>>3435602adding on to>>3435617>Sakura, let me know how much time passes, while we are in here. We only have so much time. If this is going nowhere pull me back.
>>3435602>Let's explore for now>Transform into sashiko.>Sakura, Marie let me know how much time passes while I'm in here.If her mind is a machine, lets become something she wouldn't immediately tag as a hostile.
>>3435646We could try it but we have sakura with us and she fought natalya when we recovered yuu. junko can't do voices, so the minute we need to speak our cover is blown.
>>3435773>"Let's look around for now."You transform yourself into Sachiko but it prevents you to.>"Huh? Why I can't transform?"Oh....well we are on another person's mind. She is the supreme ruler of her own body so it's not suprising if you can't use your skills.>"Oh well, let's just hope that no one sees us. Sakura, let me know how much time passes, while we are in here. We only have so much time. If this is going nowhere pull me back."Alright.Both of you walk looking for something that resemble an entrance. Yet you can't see anything except the wall on your right. >"Say.....how many hours we have been walking?"About 2 hours? You didn't say how long we are going to walk anyway.You think that you can't gleam whatever info here.>Get out. You get nothing out of it.>Keep walking>Write-in
>>3435831>"Get out. You get nothing out of it. We would have to brake down her mental defenses more before we could get anything out of this .She has no emotions to attack in this state, so all we have left is to inject corruption and Arc vetoed that.">"We need to talk to Arc...off the record. I want to know what the fresh hell we have just stumbled into. They programed a dangerous girl like a robot and let her off the reservation. If I learned anything from dealing with Yuu, this brainwashing stuff doesn't work how you want it too. There are way too many variables for Natalya to pick back up her crusade against the organization and seek revenge against us. We are only safe if she is dead or corrupted. Arc has been jerking me around this whole time and I don't buy the whole I'll just leave you out of this routine. The bitch saw me as a corrupted and started staying at my house."
>>3435831accidentally cut off part of >>3435872>"She told me Natalya's catalyst was with Sachiko, while she had it the entire time. The bitch was tracking Natalya the whole time and probably could have put Natalya down too.">Call Arc for a pause on our eight hours and an off the record meeting at the mansion.
If Natalya specifically can’t talk about the organization ,questioning about Sachiko forces her to be unable to talk, and her line about Sachiko needing backing/equipment was a half-truth, then it seems fairly obvious hat Sachiko has organizational backing for what she’s doing right now.
>>3435915>"Let's get out of here. We get nothing out of it. We would have to brake down her mental defenses more before we could get anything out of this .She has no emotions to attack in this state, so all we have left is to inject corruption and Arc vetoed that."Arc will not agree on that but go for it.You close your eyes again and then when you return to your own body, you wobbled out almost falling down until Yuu catches you from your shoulder."Oh thank god you came back!""Why the face Yuu?""Sachiko is already above attacking the mansion."No way......(See you tomorrow everyone.)
>>3435922yup seems like it. The organization is fighting itself and does Arc know it.
>>3435928At least we got a decent excuse to shadowcifate her. Her one remaining emotion and willingness to be changed might actually make that a breeze. Unless we just stop halfway to remove the mental blocks? The big problem is Arc is not gonna take any of the news well.Kanna + and mri probably would have worked better or making n X-ray glasses spell.
>>3435932Well sachiko’s attack gives us a really good reason to turn her depending on how the fight is going.
>*one hour after Junko dived inside Natalya mindspace*Kanna stares at Natalya's head for an hour now and it seems to be it would take long before Junko is going finishes whatever she is doing. "Uuuuuuu.....I need to preserve......for the VIP ticket of my favorite band."Then you saw something above Natalya's head. It was some kind of circle with inscription on it. Then it disappeared."Huh? What was that?""What was what Kanna?" Yuu asks."I saw something.....a yellow circle with something inscribed on it.""Yellow? You mean like a yellow aura?""Uhm....yes?""WAIT THAT'S!!"Then a rumble was heard above. Dust fell down from the ceiling. Then a shadowshade opens the door."Okada says that someone is attacking the manor and trying to break in.""Oh shit! Everyone hold her until Junko comes back. Come on everyone!" Marie commands. Kanna follows while Yuu wait for Junko to come back."Junko......please come back quick.......!"
The sound of combat is clearly heard above. You and Yuu are still on the 2nd basement where you try to coax Natalya out with questions."Sachiko is already above attacking the mansion.""Wait how?""Kanna saw an aura with inscription on it. Sachiko probably put something to Natalya to secretly track her knowing she would be caught.""Let's get to the top first and help them.""What about her?"You summon your sword and charge something. Then you release it on to Natalya. Yuu tries to stop you."No Junko! Don't kill her!""BINDING SLASH!!A ghostly chain surrounds Natalya's body on the chair. You desummoned your sword and grab Yuu's hand."That's should do it. Now let's go.""At least, tell me what you are going to do before making a decision.""No time, now let's go."..........Going on the ground floor. You are on the front door."They are all outside, com-"The door suddenly opened an Arc go past sailing into the stairs crashing herself. Then you see Sachiko glowing with a loads of hopeful yellow energy floating slowly and hovers down to the ground."I must thank you Junko. I thought you were going to dispel the seal Natalya made in the slums but I guess you forgot it when you try to rescue two useless members of that wretched group. I can't wait to beat you up. Your group of friends are lying in the ground hanging on their dear life. What took you so long.............Junko Kurosaki?">Fuck you bitch, I will personally wring your neck myself>It's time to payback your wrongdoings to me 4 months ago.....*Leader*>No words, attack her....>Yuu.......get ready>Write-in (insults? Opening remarks? Monologue? Welcome address? Or maybe some strategy?)
>>3436171A map of the situation would be useful before we commit to any plan but this is my rough idea for now.>Stall for time.>Make a discreet gesture to Arc behind your back to stay down and do the same for Yuu to stay put and "zip it".>Mental link to Marie in between sentence to Sachiko: See if you can rouse her and switch personalities. We need to get the rest of the team back into the fight. Where is Mako and Okada? We need shadows and a field of corruptive energy could be useful to deal with all this hope energy.>Mental link to Sakura same as above: "Before you freak out I'm stalling. If you have a mass heal ability now is a good time to let me know about it. Could you start charging the black hole? if you can do it without getting caught go ahead.">Be ready to cast Vanguard and summon Shields the moment Sachiko turns aggressive. Then get Yuu to start the buff train.>"Sachiko, I was indulging my curiosity. Real curious bit of work *THEY* did to your friend. Can't say I really approve but brainwashing has it's uses and shutting up a big mouth is one of them.">"As for the seal, I didn't fight Natalya there. Someone neglected to mention it. Almost like they were trying to kill two birds with one stone or keep you distracted. I think you understand having a healthy dose of paranoia">"I'm surprised you left Natalya alive, though.">"If she hadn't opened her big mouth all those years ago, the organization would have found their disposable assets and none of this would have happened. As she said though, your goals aligned. I can't help but wonder why WE are fighting--why you went after me? I was a lonely, bullied, girl, who grew up without a father. I was your friend. You think I would have said no if you told me some faceless organization killed your father over internal politics and we should take them out? You're not that foolish. We could have been sisters in arms but instead you killed me and I started asking questions.">"Which brings us to today, You see thanks to both our actions and especially thanks to your friend, Natalya. We got investigated. *THEY* know everything now, and apparently more people like them are asking questions about us. That's a big problem for both us. Even if you still have help in the inside of the organization, leadership is both tipped off and spooked. They know you're coming now, that's a disadvantage. As for me, you saw how they treated an anomaly like Natalya, what do you think they might have in store for me? I'm not looking to be someone's puppet agent or constantly repulsing attempts at extermination. Before you ask, yes I was helping their agent. She was working towards my goals at the time and you know the old saying "keep your friends close and your enemies closer.">"So as I was saying OUR goals are aligned, so why waste the energy here while the real enemy is off skulking in the shadows planning how to kill both of us. This fight is a needless risk or a trap on the victor. Partners?"
>>3436328>"She is springing a trap for you Junko. She will seal you even if it kills her. I will spoil the fun on her and when that happens, You can move in and go for Natalya."Natalya never completed the seal in the slums. Also if it works like Arc's>HOLY SEAL (Status Effect): 1st Seal - Takes away Magical ability (making any magical casted very weak) 2nd Seal - Takes away Physical ability (making any physical skills very weak) 3rd and final Seal - All skill and actions sealed and also binded whenever hits. Cannot be dispelled.Junko is immune to status effects. This is a bad plan. Sachiko's advantage is that she took out the team for a little while. Granted she has been fighting for about an hour and she doesn't know the shadows can recharge with Mako.
>>3436171>dispel the seal Natalya made in the slums...what seal? the one that natayla was trying to make on the basement of the building? interesting.>Write-inWhat took me so long? easy. You aren't worth my time. You are just an annoying little girl that cries for her daddy every night until she falls asleep. Don't get me wrong, i do wanna kill you, but you aren't on my top ten priority list.>Then rush past her and run to the other girls.
>>3435928>The organization is fighting itself and does Arc know it.Its another group. Fighting a proxy war like this its wasteful at best. it makes more sense that another faction is doing this.
>>3436459Not a bad idea. It might be better than trying to buy time for the girls. You do want Yuu to use buffs for at least speed. >>3436462Also a fair inference. I was going on this logic >>3435922.
>>3437714>You do want Yuu to use buffs for at least speed. Nah. The plan is to make sashiko "see red" and focus only on us and not on what we're trying to do. If we want to win, we need our allies back which means that we have to drag sashiko away through any means. Verbally insulting her, downgrading her importance to us and outright insulting her intelligence just seems like the best options available at the moment.
>>3438045Did you only took in consideration one anon?
>>3438045sorry I was out when you stated writing. I didn't mean to finish voting until we got a map. to avoid having to switch plans like the office building.
>>3438045Sorry for the delay I have been caught by work that I have to pass so please wait for a bit .
>>3438244Also here is a crudely drawn low quality map from me. Now I must return to get whatever things that was needed to pass so I can get back home and resume.
>>3438273No problem. Thanks.>>3438069Bit annoying Sachiko is standing in the door way. I don't think we can get around her there?
>>3438282Still if you have plans, you can still add it. I still didn't start writing. Also I'm already at my car so it would be a few minutes until i get home.
>>3438282All the other girls but Yuu are out, so we have to "revive" them, so lets trash talk at sashiko until she starts to attack us. Lets see how many soft spots we can hit before she sees red.
>>3436328Arc was knock unconcious. Hoping that she is still fine you signal Yuu to zip her mouth. Calling Marie in your head hoping that she is still conscious.>"Marie? Are you there?"Nothing.......You inwardly curse yourself. Looking at Sachiko, her smile just getting wider and wider."Sachiko, I was indulging my curiosity. Real curious bit of work *THEY* did to your friend. Can't say I really approve but brainwashing has it's uses and shutting up a big mouth is one of them. As for the seal, I didn't fight Natalya there. Someone neglected to mention it. Almost like they were trying to kill two birds with one stone or keep you distracted. I think you understand having a healthy dose of paranoia.""Fair.....I have a healthy dose of paranoia too.""I'm surprised you left Natalya alive, though.""I needed her knowledge anyway. Tried to pry it off?""We didn't get any.""Of course, because that is a standard confidential information. Good thing she didn't blow in your face though.""..............""Just joking, If it did then I would be the one who got blown up.""If she hadn't opened her big mouth all those years ago, the organization would have found their disposable assets and none of this would have happened. As she said though, your goals aligned. I can't help but wonder why WE are fighting--why you went after me? I was a lonely, bullied, girl, who grew up without a father. I was your friend. You think I would have said no if you told me some faceless organization killed your father over internal politics and we should take them out? You're not that foolish. We could have been sisters in arms but instead you killed me and I started asking questions. So as I was saying OUR goals are aligned, so why waste the energy here while the real enemy is off skulking in the shadows planning how to kill both of us. This fight is a needless risk or a trap on the victor. Partners?"""Sorry, I don't trust everyone, especially the one who wears the skin of my teammate. Show yourself Sakura. There is no need to use Junko's body. If not then I will force it myself AND TAKE YOUR ESSENCE!!"Sachiko rushes towards you and you signal Yuu to get the buff up. Both of you shined with green aura making your body lighter and dodge out of the way. But she still moving to a new target which is Arc in the back. You summon a shield to block the lunge."Heh.....excellent defense. And this is from ta hundred person soul full of hopes and dreams. Seems Natalya didn't refined it and just gave it to me raw. No matter. It's still usable."(1/2)
Sachiko lunges again on your shield and you enhanced it to try and block the blow. But it was so powerful that it broke your shield but in a last minute you summon another one that would prevent to pierce her head and just stuck on the concrete wall. Sachiko picks Arc up from her neck and throw to Yuu which Yuu tries to catch Arc and got thrown out of the door. Looking at Yuu it was your mistake as when you try to look back, you already see Sachiko shoes coming to your face which you get a faceful of it and skidding out of the mansion.."Is that your best shot?"Looking in the side is Mako with two shadowshades guarding her looking at the far side of the mansion. She got the worried face as you try to look at Sachiko who is coming closer at you.>Summon a shadowshades to attack Sachiko but one who will deliver a message to Okada (what?)>Summon a shadowshades to attack Sachiko but one who will deliver a message to Mako to (what?)>Switch to Sakura>Write-in

You are just an old hag that cries for her daddy every night" "wah, wah, daddy, why did you leave me alone with a bitch of a mother and nobody else?""Fuck you!"Sachiko rushes on you again and you summoned all your summonable shadowshade except that you let the other one go to Mako which you relayed your thoughts to your shadow messenger. Inside the door. Yuu hefts Arc up and carry her where you see Okada urging for Yuu to come. Then you try to go over to the left side where you see Mako hefts Yuuki and Kanna up. You kept the distraction away from Mako as she tries to sneak and rescue until they're successfully out of the area."Come on. I'm just dancing around you. What if I try to hit you with my sword? No you aren't worthy with my sword.""THEN EAT MY BULLETS!!"You summon your shield again from the oncoming barrage of bullets that hails onto you. Meanwhile Mako and another shadowshade is now picking up Marie and Raye.>Roll1d100-10 best of three beat my roll

Taunt to get bodied. True combo.
>>3438787Sachiko, her rage boiling over, seems to lose her head entirely as she starts firing every which way. You can only look on in shock as the bullets fly, and cries of pain sound from seemingly all directions as everyone takes the brunt of her fury, a hailstorm of bullets at all angles as she's trying to gun you down. You try to ward the assault off with your barrier; the constant, magically enhanced bullets combined with old-fashion kinetic force slamming into it strain your efforts as you move. You’ve GOT to get to cover at this point...yet your barrier drops in a fizzle mid-run; your mind only numbly realizing as your legs move on autopilot that her onslaught is just too much- it couldn’t sustain the hell of both elemental and normal bullets. In a near mindless sprint, you barely register wicked-hot touches here and there, like someone’s cutting you, but the pain just hasn’t registered yet. Grazing hits, as you try to run to the mansion.Sachiko’s voice erupts in sadistic joy from behind you, and you hate that you’re giving her a reason. "YES, RUN YOU FUCKING BITCH!!"And suddenly, feeling erupts throughout your body again- starting from your bicep, when a bullet properly finds its mark and suddenly it’s your voice adding to the pained chorus as you shriek out loud. Stumbling over the steps, you almost fall down as you try to drag your body inside the mansion, the adrenaline fading fast. In a last push, you jump over the threshold, sliding to the side of the mansion door, quickly closing it as you breathe deeply, trying to reorient yourself- a few seconds of reprieve from the bullet storm. Suddenly, footsteps- you lift your head in surprise, only to see Yuu sprinting to you, quickly offering her arm to help you stand and gain some distance from the entrance, closer to the stairs. Limited cover, but it’ll have to do.(1/2)
>>3438860Her voice is concerned, and close to panic. "Are you alright, Junko?!"You have to shake your head. "Not quite. My sword arm..."You try to clutch your arm, oozing with black blood. You’ve got no time to heal it, or even get it properly bandaged…That thought leaves you briefly when you hear a massive cracking, then a crinkling sound. A peek out shows Sachiko, expression wide eyes and full of mad glee as she barges in; almost immediately she’s turned around and starts hitting the door, the windows, even the hallway exits with heavy ice bullets, icing them solid with a thickness you know isn’t going to be easy to break through. It’s obvious what she’s trying to do..."THE FINAL STAGE IS SET, JUNKO!! AFTER YOUR DEATH, I WILL PERSONALLY KILL EVERYONE HERE... AND MY POWER WILL BE ENOUGH TO TOPPLE EVERYONE WHO FUCKING GETS IN MY WAY!!"With your beaten state the best you can bring to bear, Sachiko is already cackling mad with laughter. Yuu looks worried, and you?You just grit your teeth. One of you isn’t getting out of this building alive. "Alright...get ready.">Yuu will distract Sachiko for now while you try to heal your sword arm.....even if it's a little bit.>You and Yuu will encircle Sachiko to minimize both of you hit with her guns>Write-in(See you tomorrow and sorry for the delay. Was kinda sleepy.)
>>3438863>Have Yuu heal Junko's sword arm, since we aren't harmed by hope energy.>Summon more shadows to get Okada and buy time.>Have junko rebuild the sheilds and use vanguard and have Yuu cast as many buffs as possible especially speed.>Attack together in combination.best I can come up with. we are inside the mansion now. with all of the corruption could we charge the black hole easily.night QM. I slept most of the night myself despite having the tv on.best i can come up with.
>>3438863We need a map first.>"Of course you have the power, but that won't bring back your dad, you pathetic hag.">>3438810There was a 10% chance of completely fucking us over and another 10% chance of completely fucking her over regardless of what we do. Those are damn good odds if you ask me.>>3438873This battleground has us in a disadvantage. The best thing that we can do right now is to let her burn out all that extra energy she has, because we obviously can't get her right now. Ideally, the madder she'll get, the more reckless she'll become and the more energy she'll use up.So, lets jump to the second floor or to the back of the mansion and let our natural regeneration take care of the wound(or heal ourselves while we run), call some shadows to our location to heal us(either sashiko shoots at them or we get healed) and then jump outside. At this time Raye and mary should be up again, so we have more ways of pestering her.Yuu can also pull out stuff from the bag god i hate that thing, is so useless maybe we can pull the gun again and give it to a shadowshade to take potshots against sashiko's back.
>>3439341> I disagree on the battleground depending on the layout. We have cover inside the mansion, which we didn't have outside. Sachiko fights a lot like Mami from PMMM except with magical Garands (she also has a short ranged Obrez'ed version, which is sort of heresy to my inner /k/, and ice rounds) We can use the cover and shields to try to reduce the engagement distance down to <25 feet at which time drawing and aiming a firearm against a charging attacker becomes difficult. Since we are dealing with garands they have a famous quirk: when the gun runs out of the eight rounds in the internal magazine the gun ejects the en bloc clip with a loud "ping" sound. Making it easy to figure out when she is drawing a new rifle. Use cover to get close, rush her from her non-dominant side, and counter attack her left arm. It will be hard for her to bring to bear the rifle in her right hand as she would aim it across her body and we could block it with a shield. That would reduce her volume of fire and give Mako more time to heal the shadows.Otherwise I agree. Let her wear herself down. I think we should send one of those shadows off to Okada and have him send more back up/get Kanna to her brother so she can get back in the fight. There is no reason Yuu can't heal us. She knows how she just can't heal normal shadows because hope energy. Junko isn't normal. Arc is laying around somewhere and the longer she isn't in combat the more she heals. Unless Sachiko sealed Arc's energy by accident.Also seconding >use the Random Bag, 'cause why not.
>>3439461>Since we are dealing with garands they have a famous quirk: when the gun runs out of the eight rounds in the internal magazine the gun ejects the en bloc clip with a loud "ping" sound.The problem is that these are magical guns. the only thing they have in common with the real gun is that they look the same.>We can use the cover and shields to try to reduce the engagement distance down to <25 feet at which time drawing and aiming a firearm against a charging attacker becomes difficult.So we force her to draw her sword? It might work, specially if Yuu buff us with evasion. We also have the sword shards that can help us distract her even more.
>>3439528>sword shardsWhat are these? I might have forgotten about something.another thing I forgot is the interior of the mansion is heavily corrupted enough for Yuu to start passively absorbing corruption from hanging around there while depressed. While Sachiko has the hope energy of one hundred people, she is standing around in a sea of corruption really pissed off. That should help wear her down.
>>3439562I misremembered the skill, but it still works the same>HOMING SWORD BOLT - A shockwave left from your sword causing it to home on the target as long as the target was seen.>That should help wear her down.Yeah, that should work, but if we consider arc and how she is still normal, we can infer that there was a retcon regarding how magical girls and their corruption work. Now it seems that the girls are harder to corrupt, but if we keep shitting on sashiko, this might be a moot point.
>>3439664 Arc probably works like Sachiko as Arc was science dad's original experiment. As for the magical girl thing. Arc wasn't running around the mansion with murderous rage but who knows. I'm curious if Arc Alter is still cannon as I'm pretty sure Sachiko sealed Arc's hope energy instead of us. So Arc Alter should be showing up shortly.
>>3439704Hmm, it would be more interesting to see that Arc can transform at will from light to dark, but then again she already told us that she fears fighting us. I'm not sure if she can do that after the retcon.>I'm pretty sure Sachiko sealed Arc's hope energy instead of us.I don't think she managed to do that.
>>3439562Not really how corruption seems to work from what I recall. Hope energy generally beats corruption but a magical girl personally despairing/etc opens a floodgate.. tlrdr outside corruption gets burned, internal corruption starts a chain reaction. It might be interesting to see if we can channel that transformation we had before into a fighting form, but this probably isn’t the time.There’s probably some reason Sachiko doesn’t use all off her powers at onceHow loud are those magical guns? I feel like a hailstorm of bullets in the middle of Japan when everyone is swarming around looking for terrorists might be above even Okada’s bribery paygrade. He could probably get a warning and some delays, since all the cops would have to break out the armory,. It’s interesting that Sachiko apparently hasn’t figured out that we are actually Junko. I’m assuming that all of this taunting is supposed to give her excess wrath to possibly weaken her bonds to her hope powers?It’s that this moment that I also really regret not expanding our black hole a little more. It would be an excellent bullet shield atm if we had a way to maintain it or remote control it.
>>3439968>tlrdr outside corruption gets burned, internal corruption starts a chain reaction.That's the idea, but i don't know if it works like that anymore. Mind you, i'm using Arc as a point of reference, which is not a good thing to do.>There’s probably some reason Sachiko doesn’t use all off her powers at onceI think that's because she can't use them at once. I think we were told about that specific thing either when sakura talked with us the first time she wasn't feral or when we wanted to rescue Yuu.>How loud are those magical guns? I feel like a hailstorm of bullets in the middle of Japan when everyone is swarming around looking for terrorists might be above even Okada’s bribery paygrade. He could probably get a warning and some delays, since all the cops would have to break out the armory.That's an interesting point. Even if the "guns" don't produce any noise, the impact and subsequent explosion will.>It’s interesting that Sachiko apparently hasn’t figured out that we are actually Junko.We should use that to our advantage. We have to ask sakura what other things we can say to hurt sashiko even more and maybe tell her that she doesn't deserve to fight us in our "real" form.>I’m assuming that all of this taunting is supposed to give her excess wrath to possibly weaken her bonds to her hope powers?Definitely. With sashiko being reckless, angry and inside a house choke full of corruption, her hope powers should be overworked and being drained faster than what she is expecting.
I'll draw a map first then I'll start writing. Sorry for the late start. Life hasn't been very good on me since last week.
>>3441035Here is the map now writing....

>>3441059*Meanwhile at Okada's Office*Okada is struggling to open the door as he could see ice in the hinges of his door. In his back are Marie, Raye, Kanna, Yuuki and Arc who is attended by Mako."Mako, can you use your corruptive power to wake Mari up?""Y-Yes!"Mako charges Mari....after a little while she wakes up."Ugh.....I feel weak.""Please lie down Mari-sama. You aren't well yet."But at the corner of the room where Arc is having a considerable distance is pooling some energy.....an energy that this whole room exudes...................................Summoning you shadowshades again, you let Yuu heal your sword arm. But Sachiko gun them down with little effort and set the sights on your which made you duck for cover. Yuu resumes healing your arm."How do we do this Junko?""Give me as many buffs as you can. I'll do the same and hopefully we can shorten the distance where she can't fire us in close range.""COME OUT YOU TWO MICES...OH WAIT MAYBE I'LL DESTROY EVERY COVER!! AND THEN IT WILL BE A TURKEY SHOOT. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!""She's insane......" Yuu comments....."Yuu, how about you get something on your bag?""Oh yeah!""The slingbag came back to her like some kind of accessory and she rummages inside.""Go while I'll find something that will help us."You get out of your hiding spot and shout....."You may have the power Sachiko, but that won't bring back your dad, you pathetic hag.""I'M SEVENTEEN YOU DUMB BITCH!!"Summoning your shields again, you go closer where hopefully you can force her in melee.>Roll1d100 to close the gap as >>3439528 mentioned

>>3441326With a surprising burst of speed thanks to Yuu's speed buff, you go in Sachiko melee range in seconds that she failed to fall back and compensate the range to shoot at you. Deliverying a nasty sucker punch at her stomach, she skids away from you while you ready for another attack. You don't want Sachiko to recover."Junko! I got something."Yuu hefts a gun that was a trademark to a certain soldier who carries it to the jungle tearing trees, wood, and people apart. But now, Yuu is the one looking where she can shoot this kind of gun.""Is it this one?"Then a torrent of bullets come to you as Yuu vibrates from the thousands of bullets expelled from the gun.>Roll1d100-10 Sachiko is down and Junko is getting out of the way.

I just realized that regardless of where she shoots, Yuu is gonna literally fly away in the oposite direction. That's gonna be fun.
>>3441352Paying it back is gonna be interesting. Mini guns have No regulation on them in he us (as in no licenses needed) because the cost of the bulletsk is so damn high that you’re shooting away thousands of dollars a second.It’s a bit late to mention this too but shouldn’t those animals in the penthouse have had. Zookeeper just to keep them live in general?
>>3441395probably is a magical minigun? One that feeds from Yuu's mana or something? Technically Okada can pay for the ammo, oh well, we'll see what happens.
>>3441342>>3441345>>3441348Yuu forget how to brace as she underestimates the recoil of the mini gun. While Sachiko got hit by a bullets that was expelled by Yuu, it was short lived as she literally sliding back with the smooth tiled floor."Wa-wa-wait Junko help!!!"Yuu kept sliding back as Yuu hands strafing left and right."STOP PRESSING THE TRIGGER YUU!!""I can't stop!!! I can't let go!!""Bite your tongue!"Yuu bites her own tongue and she let's go the gun where both of her hands covers in her mouth. But that also introduce another kind of pain. The minigun slams on Yuu's feet."Ah fuck my foot!"You can only offer sympathies to Yuu. Looking at Sachiko, She stands up with bloods on her body. "Round two you fucking shadow."Sachiko rushes to you when suddenly the door in Okada's office breaks and Arc in her black outfit and the unmistakable smell in her."Arc has been corrupted?" Sachiko blocks Arc punch and back off a few distance to Sachiko."Miss me Yumegawa?""Why don't you just die.""Sorry, but I also have phase two. The one you try to force onto me.""I should have just rip that essence of yours so you could stay dead you betrayer.""FUCK OFF!!"Arc and Sachiko now engage in each other in battle. Yuu limply walks onto your side."Junko, let's check upstairs. It's where I put them for rest.">Go to second floor and see if you can recover them all to help Arc>Go tell Mako it's time for her transformation>Go tell Okada it's time to do his mekameka wave>Write-in

>>3441430i suppose it means that we corrupt her. Not ideal by any means.
>>3441412I was hoping not to mention that it might have unlimited ammo until it was too late.>>3441417Mako,you are too squishy to stick around and if you run she might shoot thinking that I’m trying to escape.

>>3441488Hmm. Actually. We’ve not really done many combination tracks with Yuu despit that being what we were known for when we were alive. I assume Yuu has some random normally useless spell that she can use to enhance this?
>>3441488>I was hoping not to mention that it might have unlimited ammo until it was too late.probably? I mean, the gun managed to shoot without any ammo whatsoever. I'm pretty sure we can return the thing back and the bag will be happy
>>3441426>>3441430>>3441439"Yuu buff Arc. After that, go to second floor.""On it!"You go upstairs where you Dodge some bullets that Sachiko fires until you arrive in Okada's room. You see Marie sitting but weak."Ah Junko......sorry, I might be out of commission for a while. To weak to move.""Mako, your hand."You grab Mako hands and siphoned whatever corruption inside her and transfer it to Marie. Little by little, her strength gets back and now ready for combat. You go to Raye who is sleeping and do the same. She wakes up too an you hear Yuu grunting."Jun.... Junko. What should I do with this gun?.""Oh? Okada, would you like to be a proud owner of the minigun?""I'll pass, also you know our country prohibits any kind of guns especially heavy ones.""Get it back inside your bag Yuu." Yuu nods and return the minigun in the bag.""Yuu go to Kanna's brother. I know that will recover Kanna up." "Alright....."Now with Raye and Marie in your side, the battle below is getting fiercer. Tiles broken, chipped concretes, broken vases and some wall damage has been around the place.

>>3441535>Mako, help me heal Yuuki>Okada do you have any shadows left to help support us?>Cast vanguard to protect the girls and get your shields ready to protect them when you exit the office.>Girls stick with me and my shields and stay close to cover.

>>3441566I think we can do with a fist or palm sized hole. Bigger than that and it becomes a danger to everyone.
>>3441573>>3441566So that stills stands but we have mako help us charge it up before we re-engage. Didn't we need a free hand to use it, we might need Yuu or a shadow to hold one of the shields.

Getting some glancing hits from both opponents you stand back and have a breather. You have been fighting her for a while now. Marie and Raye on the other hand fought hard to continue the pressure. Casting Vanguard, the three of you are bathe in shimmering shine. Popping a shield here and then, you relegated yourself to support Marie and Raye. In the top, Yuu starts buffing Marie and Raye."Yuu, call Mako and have her heal Yuuki."Yuu nods and run to Okada's office. Sachiko noticed this but prevented by Raye firestorm."Tch..... annoying insects "Feeling that they can hold on for a little while, you go to Okada's office where Mako is transferring corrupted energy to Yuuki."My queen, she is receptive to my energy but she didn't wake up. Something must be happening." Mako reports.Not wanting to leave Marie and Raye behind you call Okada to your side which he ducks behind you."Can you call your remaining shadowspectre?""I could."With a whistle, the shadowspectre jumps from the second floor from Okada's office on his balcony and now standing by in front of you.""Alright.....also how is your mekameka wave?""It's.......not complete.""Wanna try it now?""I think I'll pass. I don't want to blow myself up you know?">Urge Okada to try>Command Okada's Shadowspectre (what?)>Get back at supporting Marie and Raye>Wake up Arc>Write-in
It’s too bad that we can’t just hide a black hole bomb inside a shadow specter to glomps sachiko like a Saibaman....that isn’t a thing we could actually do, right?
>>3441776...a Carl Gustaf recoilless rifle. That thing is safer than the RPG(you literaly explode if you trip and fall on the tip of the primed rocket) and well, is recoilless. Yuu won't fly on the oposite direction this time.>>3441784>Get back at supporting Marie and Raye>"Yuu, i'm not sure you'll be able to use that" "Please don't fire it until we get outside."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk6K1zTBcI4>>3442021we need to be touching the black hole to control it
>>3441774How large is the hallway of the mansion because if it is >33m, we could use thermobaric rounds to clear the ice and damage Sachiko. (HEAT is ineffective because Sachiko will puncture before the secondary charge ignites) It will react with the air and create an explosion and fire.>RPG-29 with TBG-29 round >>3442046I don't think the same issue applies to the 29 as the round is inside of the tube. only the RPG-7 has that issue and the RPG-29 is now being commonly used in middle eastern conflicts.Also I'm assuming the mansion is big enough to avoid the normally horrendously bad idea of setting off fuel-air explosives indoors.>>3441784>Summon some shadowshades to assist the shadowspectre. Have them shield him while he brings Arc back in cover. Afterwards the spectre and the shades should go down to the basement and begin to torture Natalya. Use her pain to create corruption and promote up new shadows. Inject her with a bit if you can.>Mental link to Marie: "Make sure that shadowspectre gets through. Afterwards regroup on me. Uncoordinated attacks are doing nothing. We need to work together. We can blast her and the ice with what Yuu's got.>"Okada, forget it I have another plan. Behind me, back upstairs. I need you and Mako to create more shadows. If they are weaker send them down to the basement.">Have Mako recharge Junko, while Junko throws some homing swordbolts to cover the team. Have Marie and Raye fire at Sachiko as they withdraw to keep her busy. Once they are clear have Yuu fire the rocket.
>>3442046Define “us” we re a mass of both positive nd negative magical energy which arguably men’s anytime we use the Royal we when talking bout our subjects/creations it’s techniclly accurate as they are both figuratively and literally extensions of ourselves.Otherwise, Junko la noche mode via channeling our wrath, make hair clones like son wukong or 99% of Chinese witches,and bind her down long enough to materialize a black hole inside her.
>>3442083Oh and obviously Yuu should stand with a hallway behind her to avoid the backblast issues.
>>3442083>Summon some shadowshades to assist the shadowspectre. Have them shield him while he brings Arc back in coveri think corruptor changed Yuuki's name for Arc's. Otherwise it would have been stated in the writing that arc got knocked down.>HEAT is ineffective because Sachiko will puncture before the secondary charge ignitesIt's still gonna puncture sashiko though. That is a decent sized hole in her body. The problem with the explosives is that is an explosive in a closed room. It will affect everyone involved, even Yuu and junko.>I don't think the same issue applies to the 29I assume that the bag will pop out the unsafest RPG. And the other point still stands, the Gustaf its a recoiless rifle, the RPG will push you.>>3442105>Define “us”I meant "we"as in junko. Junko needs to be touching the black hole in order to control it. Otherwise it will either explode or destroy everything in its path.
>>3442105If you mean using the dark queen. I think that might be were this is going but I want to soften Sachiko up first.Nothing says soften up like a concussive shock-wave of displaced air that liquefies organs followed up by violent chemical reaction that lights the oxygen in the air on fire (and the blond in the frilly dress, and her wooden stocked rifles, her bullshit magical ice, and her pretty little lungs.)
>>3442133The problem is that the same thing will happen to all of the girls in some degree. Arc will be fucked, then depending on how close they are, marie and raye might be as well. The "safest" ones will be junko and yuu, but they will still feel the pressure because there is no place for the shoclwave to go because sashiko sealed the windows and doors.
>>3442130no arc in alter form, got knocked out again>Then Arc again was thrown to the wall where your picture of you sitting on a throne with a jet black dress smiling.It's a write in so I'm writing a launcher in.I think the 29 is recoiless as it just uses a rocket that fires in the tube and not an initial gunpowder charge to make the projectile clear the launcher before igniting the rocket like other RPG's. It is in common use in the middle east today so it's not too rare. If we can get outside of the 33m blast radius we should be good.Plus wouldn't the HEAT round ignite once it hits the floor since Yuu would be firing at a diagonal angle.>>3442160If the girls are outside of the 33m blast radius and behind cover they should be okay, now the fire on the other hand that might be the issue. However, we need fire to clear the magical ice, if the shockwave doesn't break it first.
>>3442083The ground floor if we remove the stairs is 25 meters. If we include the second floor hallway (just on the door to Okada's office) it would be 30m.
>>3442201To be honest is it too long? I would think it's more like 10-15 meters anyway
>>3442201I mean it’s a huge mansion and it’s never been established. I was thinking fire the rocket down onto the ground floor (with the hallway is at yuu’s Back to avoid backblast) and have everyone jump under partial cover. Up to you Qm if it could work. If the distance is greater than 33 meters they miss the blast. I’m on my phone so I can’t edit the map right now to point out what I would be thinking. What about firing the round at the iced over front wall?
>>3442168>arc got knocked out againOh. oh well.Honestly? i'd rather not use the rocket launcher right now. Marie and raye are engaging sashiko so they will be in the blast area and well, corruptor already said that all of us are inside as well. i'd rather return the RPG to the bag and pull out something else.
>>3442264I know. I want them to fall back to cover regardless if we launch anything as uncoordinated attacks aren’t accomplishing anything. I think the girls need to try combining their fire.
>>3442264I was trying to find a way to clear out the ice so we could push Sachiko back outside. What about having the guy that manages okada’s weapons range bring some explosives to clear it off. (I can’t remember his name but it seemed like he was a hitman or mercenary for okada.
>>3442291it takes a car ride and about 20 minutes to go to his house. By the time he comes, the fight will be long over.
>>3442414Okada’s not really doing anything else besides maybe spawning more shadows. It’s worth a phone call.
>>3442083"Okada you'll be going to the basement where you will guard Natalya. Hurt her if you need to. You all, guard Okada and the floor he is going to."The shadowspectre salutes and get ready at the stairs. You go to Arc who is groaning."Can you still fight?""Fucker dispels corruption in every hit making you weak. And also siphon anything hope if you are an MG. We need to throw more corruption at her so we can overwhelm and drain her hope energy faster.""But can you still fight?""I am....give me a minute.""Mako come here!"Mako runs onto you casting her vanguard in case."Give me your energy. Yuu what did you got?""I got a bazooka!""Is it alright to fire that thing inside?""Yuu shrugs.""Fine.....better than nothing. Okada.....on my mark. Ready.......Go!"You get out of your hiding place and throw sword bolts onto Sachiko."Raye, Marie, range attack!"Raye and Marie give their distance while you throw your unlimited supply of sword bolts. The bolts, arrows and ice where all blocked by Sachiko multiple gun that switches ice and fire to melt then. After a little while Raye is beside you."My queen I can't take this anymore, she chips our energy slowly and I don't know Marie can hold out too.""Everyone hide!"On your command Yuu already aims the weapon at Sachiko."Eat this bitch.">Roll1d100 DC:30 hopefully Sachiko won't "ice it"
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>3442520OH SHIT YUU, YOU MADWOMAN!
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>3442520
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>3442520
>>3442533>>3442541One more before it will be unceremoniously drop off like a piece of.....metal? I mean what is the ammo casing made off?
>>3442552Welp there it is.....
>>3442561I mean I know this is magical bullshit but can she really hit a rocket that leaves the tube at 280m/s
>>3442555Eh. Not really? If it impacts against anything that is solid enough it will explode because that's their design. You'd need to slow down the rocket in a very long path or "grab" it by the sides so the charge doesn't activate.The easiest way to resolve this is that either sashiko moved, and/or the rocket failed and slammed itself against the wall(creating a nice hole).
>>3442568Yuu already has spidey-senses.its not far fetched for Sachiko to have fast reflexes and Yuu isn’t exactly an expert in handling guns.. the bag really needs to give her some magically enhanced nunchucks or other misc martial arts weapons. Maybe even a lightsaber or headband of protection from bullets.
>>3442555>>3442561Yuu fires the weapon to Sachiko and almost stumbled but held her ground. She didn't probably do the stance to fire a rocket. Then again you're teenagers who has access to...... probably everything. Yet for Sachiko, time slows down as she can see the rocket fly very fast to her position. It also helps that she can see their moves that she could easily dodge their attacks and get a hit on them. But this one.....it's too fast. Her power drained a significant amount. Enough to encase the rocket coating it with ice. Then time resumes normally as the rocket drops like a useless metal."Really? Seriously?" Sachiko sneers.Well.....that didn't work but Okada manage to get to the basement and that is your own small victory. Looking at the iced missile it is near the door. Also you noticed that Sachiko is now visibly panting.Maybe.....>Raye firestorm that missile to break the entrance.>Lure Sachiko to the door and blow her up along with the iced door>Keep throwing Ranged attacks on Sachiko>Write-in
>>3442573>>3442577Plus the Russian made round I was thinking of has a operational temperature range of -50C to 50C...because Russia
>>3442585Russia is truly a magical place.
>>3442584>Mental Link: Marie fire an explosive round at the missile>Use homing sword bolts to distract Sachiko>Raye, Firestorm at the missile.
>>3442584Its interesting to note that although frozen, the rocket is still live. If we launch it with enough force to break the ice it will detonate.>Use homing sword bolts to distract Sachiko>"What can i say? at least my plans are more simple and more successful than yours.">Mental Link: Marie fire an explosive round at the missile when sashiko is closest to it.
>>3442584>Use homing sword bolts to distract Sachiko>"What can i say? at least my plans are more simple and more successful than yours.">Mental Link: Marie fire an explosive round at the missile when sashiko is closest to it.
on an unrelated note(and just because i thought it was cool), it seems that hand held miniguns exist.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdGueKkjQlk
>>3442873Pretty cool. I don't really know what the tactical advantage would be over standard lmg like the M249B (less barrel heat if you run the microgun at a lower rpm? Mount them on vehicles, wouldn't want the increased penetration of .50 from a browning). Hey, things could go pretty sci-fi if you mounted it on something from Boston dynamics or the military actually manages to get powered exoskeletons working
>>3442925I was thinking it could be used to defeat "homemade" armor. Or you could bolt one of these on a police helicopter and have a relatively light turret that is capable of delivering high volumes of fire.
>>3442962Seems like a bit much for your average 'Murcan police department. Especially with all the government subsidized war on terror surplus that got basically handed out. I'm imagining the lawsuits right now when some swat officer dumps 2,000 rounds on the wrong house.
>>3443000Maybe the army could use them for vehicle turrets? instead of having the soldier exposed manning the turret, he can be inside, controlling it via cameras and a joystick.
>>3443026yeah I was thinking killbots too. I know the military had already adapted some bomb disposal robots in Iraq with LMG's and 40mm grenade launchers for breaching buildings with suspected suicide bombers inside. forgot where I was reading about it.Now imagine a microgun mounted to one of Boston dynamics robo-dogs. That's some Metal Gear Solid type stuff right there.
>>3443026oh vehicle turrets. I read that as automated turrets. Yeah its a fine use
I guess Qm isn't running tonight.
>>3443893My apologies for that. Semana Santa (Holy Week) in our town and everyone is busy including myself.
>>3443979No problem. Night, QM. Are you running tomorrow or picking up after Easter? This thread is already on page 9.
Wow, I finally caught up.
