[ERROR] No.25234611 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

You are a Magical Girl, and you're currently in a meeting with the four most high-ranking Magical Girls in your Officio - well, after you, of course. You can't help but smirk at that, somehow. A couple of months ago, you wouldn't even have dreamed of talking to them face to face like this - not that you wanted to, anyway - but the fact that you can, now, seemed to help sink in that you were in fact Warmaster. You're a big deal. The biggest.

Hell, you probably could ask them about the underwear they're wearing, and they'd have no choice but to answer without giving you any lip.

...Not that you would, of course. Not that you would at all.

Fucking, no-good, piece of shit hat.

>> No.25234621


Anycase, you started things off with introductions. Easy enough, right? You began by saying your own name - which got you nothing but surprised stares. "Chiaki...Matsuda, Warmaster?" The girl in the kimono had asked, breaking the awkward silence. "I beg your pardon, but isn't the current Warmaster's name, um...Murderface?"

Yes. Yes, that's your name, you replied. But you're going by Chiaki Matsuda, now. It's a much better name, anyway.

"...I suppose so, but it doesn't have the same ring as Murderface." The girl shrugged here. "I've always thought it was a good name. A very brutal name. Right, Ashford? Ashford?" She turned towards her more diminutive companion, nudging her with an elbow, while Sayaka all but positively seethed at her direction.

. . .Right. Well. You moved on from there, noting that this particular officer may be a handful to deal with.

You got their names easily after that. The mouthy girl in the kimono is Karasawa Enishi, Callidus Rank Leader and the Officio's current Etiquette Officer (whatever the hell that meant). Short stuff with the glasses and pigtails and weird-ass gun is Rea Ashford, Vindicare Rank Leader and Logistics Officer. Sayaka, well, you already know her. The one in the Culexus hardsuit, though...all you got was a burst of static, and a murmured "Omegon". Which...didn't really tell you anything other than the fact that whoever was underneath that helmet may or may not be Yuma.

But it's got to be Yuma, right? Malal wouldn't be wrong here, would she?

Putting that aside, you began to brief them from behind your desk, taking a seat on the throne as you did so. You told them, as succinctly as you could, about the package you received. The head, and who it was made to look like, and what you think it means. No doubt they've been asked to reassign girls to Mami as security duty - this is the reason why. You note here that Sayaka's eyes narrow at this, the blue-haired Eversor standing up straighter.


>> No.25234626


You then tell them about why you summoned them here - the Prophet. You have reliable intel that a Prophet is involved in all of this, and may be the key to finding the one wanting Tomoe Mami dead. Once Kyuubey finishes compiling the list of potentials, they'll be the ones to apprehend them for questioning. They are to be brought back to the Officio alive - standard Silent Room protocol. Dead, only if nothing else can be done.

Finally, you told them about the Golden Weapons. If they find a lead about them, or hear rumors about them, or even know about someone using it - it is to be reported to you directly and immediately. No one engages without you knowing and being on-site. You stressed how dangerous they really are, even if they manage to disarm whoever's been waving the Golden Weapon around. Only you can handle them safely enough, and even then it's still a risk, due to a procedure you underwent in Siberia. Both Rea and Enishi blinked at this, Sayaka remained her usual scowling self.

"...Well. First impressions aside, Warmaster, I do believe you've got everything handled. I was getting worried that we'd be needing to wait until your aide translated everything into intelligibility. I have high hopes, and welcome our new Warmaster." Enishi smiles and bows, the gesture elegant even in when curt. "Rest assured the Callidus are at your command, Matsuda-sama, and we will keep watch for these Golden Fiends."

"The Vindicares echo the sentiment," Rea murmurs in her usual deadpan tone. "We will hunt down this Prophet and prepare him for the Warmaster's justice." Her amber eyes glint from behind her glasses.


>> No.25234637


"You know what I'm already going to say, Murderf--" Sayaka is just about to reply in her customary irritated manner - until she catches the gaze of the two other Rank Leaders staring at her sullenly. "...W-what I meant to say was, likewise, Warmaster." She amends herself quickly. "The Eversors will have this prophet's skull for your throne before too long."

. . .What?

"Sorry. Reflex." Sayaka grumbles, looking away, scratching the back of her neck in embarrassment.

Well. Anyway. That seems to be it, you think. More or less.

Is there anything else you'd like to ask them? Tell them? This should be the time.

>> No.25234686 [DELETED] 

Oh boy, the most exciting time of the day!

Within the week, we'd like a report on each section's forces, current strengths and weaknesses, and any priority matters that they consider should be looked at, and have it forwarded to our aid, Kyouko.

We'll impress on them we'll try to make this place a bit more professional at its core - that is, we'll get the job done. Then, check for any immediate current concerns that they might have.

Try to resist the urge to snark at Sayaka and shoot anyone.

Ask them to keep an ear out for rumours of Golden Weapons. We already know about Kyoko Sakura's spear; that was modified from a safe weapon and is not relevant.
After that, dismiss everyone but Sayaka, and call Mami. She didn't seem to take our previous warning seriously and, despite the inherent unpleasantness, will need to be informed that this isn't just some insane rant posted on the internet or stuffed in the mailbox.

Well, that is pretty much it, you decide. You don't want to hold them up for too long, you know they've got a lot of things to do, as Rank Leaders.

You exchange phone numbers with them, though, before dismissing them, so they can contact you the moment they find anything about the Golden Weapons or the Prophet. They should feel free to call anytime, but in the off chance that you can't be reached, then they're to call Sayaka, your Equerry, or Tomoe Mami herself. Both Rea and Enishi blink at this, and even Omegon lifts her helmet to look at the suddenly-awkward Eversor.

"My. Rank Leader AND Equerry, Miki?" Enishi snaps a paper fan open with a flick of her wrist, covering a coquettish giggle with the trinket. "You're certainly moving up in the world. Maybe we should start saluting you also?"

"Eat a dick, Karasawa," Sayaka snarls, before glaring at you. "Why couldn't you have waited 'till your ratification ceremony? Why'd you have to bust that out now, huh?"

There's nothing wrong with the Rank Leaders knowing about it. What the hell's her problem, anyway?

"It's the look of the thing, for fuck's sake! Dammit, Murderface, I haven't even told my own goddamn squad--"

"Relax, Miki. I was just making fun." Enishi tuts from behind her fan, again, before looking at you sidelong and then bowing again. "It has been my pleasure, Warmaster." She says, before making her leave. Rea stares at you for a moment too long, before nodding and following the kimono-clad Callidus out of your office as well.

"...Well, now I gotta tell the girls, and they're going to make a scene about this," Sayaka gnashes her teeth, raking one gloved hand through her hair in sheer frustration. "Thanks, Murderface, really." She makes to leave, but stops just as she passes Omegon. "And you. You'd better stop fucking hiding from Kyoko, she's been asking about you. I'm not going to keep lying to her face about you any longer."


>> No.25235182



>> No.25235189


All the enraged Eversor gets in reply is a nod, and it only seems to make her angrier. She goes to storm off, before you stop her by calling her name.

"What." She snaps. "Is it. Murderface."


"...Warmaster. Christ, please, don't be difficult about this--"

You shake your head and tell her that there's going to be a small gathering at your new apartment later. Mami, Kyoko and Midori are going to be there, so she might as well be, too.

Sayaka's silent for a few moments, before you see her shoulders droop in surrender. "...Housewarming, eh? Fine. I'll...I'll bring some takeout. Probably someething to drink, too. God knows I'll need some." She turns to glare at you, but softens somewhat with a tired grin. "Later, Murderface."

You bid her goodbye just as she closes the door behind her, leaving you and Omegon alone.

The Culexus seems to be shaken from what Sayaka snapped at her, by the way she's no longer leaning against the wall, but rather tense and wringing her gloved hands together.

She glances at you, then at the door, but seems to catch your intention, and stays instead. Waiting for you to make the first move.

You get up from the skull throne and make your way towards the Culexus. You're not all that sure if this is really Yuma, but you know what Malal told you, and you're going with that.

You take out the box containing Remov from your inventory, and hold it out to the girl. The visor of her helmet reflects your face for a couple of seconds, before two gloved hands reach out to receive the package. She takes the lid off just as you ask her if she knows anything about it - your voice low, careful, measured. If a bit hesitant, you'll admit. You still have no fucking idea who this is.

"...Remov," comes the whispered reply, all warmth and character ruined by vox corruption. "The Betrayer's Servitor Skull. Yes, I know about this, Warmaster. I bought it myself, when Miss Kyoko took me to buy presents for everyone." She shakes her head. "...Why's it disassembled? Even the memory unit's taken apart. You'll have to do some serious repairs just to get it flying again..."

Well, that's what she'll have to do. Malal did tell you to have her fix it.

"...Malal? Miss Malal told you?" Despite the vox unit in her helmet ruining her words, you can't help but hear suspicion in her tone. "How? I--"

You take out the note that Malal had left you along with the box. She reads it quickly, and grows silent for a bit before letting out a sigh. "...I see. Alright, Warmaster. I'll have this put back together for you as soon as I can. It'll take a while, but I'll try to make the wait a short one." You notice that her grip on the box is shaking slightly, but it disappears as soon as she places the lid back. "I can't fathom why you'd want to find out what the Betrayer's thoughts are, but orders are orders."

...At least that confirms what she feels about Kharn. Somewhat.

But another thing...so she's Yuma, right? She's not anyone else? It's just that you can't tell, what with the helmet and all.

You seem to have hit a sore nerve somehow. You weren't even trying to, but there it is.

"Is there anything else, Warmaster? Only I've got a skull servitor to put together, and you've got your housewarming party to get to."

It would be a nice gesture, and Sayaka seemed to think that Yuma was being really withdrawn since the incident. Although it seems that Culexus tend to make some Meguca sick to their stomachs.

Yes, which is exactly why Yuma isn't going to be happy to know that Kharn has been made a housewife.
It means that Kharn's won. She survived EVERYTHING, and still came out the other side alive and can now live out her life on a Grief Seed-a-month pension. She's gotten something that most Magical Girls will never get, and that Yuma, as a Culexus, can never have.

You guys think it's funny, but from a Magical Girl's perspective, Kharn got the true best ending, when before the best end you could expect was dying in a fight before you have a chance to Witch Out, followed by second-best, which is being retired by a friend before you can Witch Out.

Omegon - or Yuma - shakes her head after a few moments. "No apologies necessary, Warmaster. That was a long time, and I was aware that you were not yourself when it happened." The vox destroys what sounds like a chuckle coming from her. "And that doesn't really make me feel better, to hear that the Betrayer got a happy ending when Miss Malal didn't. But I appreciate the attempt." With one arm hugging the box to her, she gives a salute. "If I can be excused, then, Warmaster."

...Wait. She can come to your housewarming if she wants. You were just about to invite her.

"I know, Warmaster. And I wasn't going to accept it." Yuma shrugs again. "Nothing personal, but we don't really know much about each other. I'm just your subordinate, and I'd very much like to keep it that way, if it's all the same to you." Another vox-ruined chuckle. "Really, Warmaster, it's fine. Don't look like I pissed in your cornflakes just for the kick of it. Besides, no one invites a Culexus to a housewarming party - that's bad luck, and brings evil spirits into your home."

That's a whole lot of bullshit and she knows it.

"Maybe. But really, if you want to make me feel better about the entire thing, Warmaster?" She walks towards the door, gloved hand reaching out for the doorknob and twisting it. "You'll take the Betrayer behind the shed and put her out of her misery. Barring that, well...just try not to be Kharn 2.0 and you'll be just fine."

...Right. Alright. You...guess you can do that.

"Hopefully you don't forget. We Culexus don't, you know." She salutes you again. "Warmaster."

She steps through the door and closes it behind her. Leaving you alone in your office with your throne of skulls and a rapidly-sinking sense of defeat.

You don't even want to consider how busy tomorrow will be. You've got that mission with Kirishima Ruri slated for then, don't you? Great. At least you got all the bothersome stuff out of the way first.

You grab a fistful of the hat and tear it off your head, tossing it on the table as you lean back on the uncomfortable throne made out of head bones. Surely the entire place won't go to hell and back if you take a short nap. It's not even a nap, you're just going to rest your eyes a bit. Yeah. That's all it is.

Just resting your eyes...

. . .


You feel someone shaking your shoulder. You grunt something vaguely offensive, and turn to the other side. The shaking becomes more insistent, and you grunt something else more offensive while slapping the hand away.

Fucking hell, who do you need to kill to get some sleep around here?

"Sempai, you can't sleep here, you'll get a stiff neck or something." It's then that you recognize the voice, even with your mind still cloudy from sleep. "Besides, uh, you asked us to take the thronen to storage, right? The replacement's here, and we're just about to pack it away."

What? Oh...oh, right. Yeah. Replace this stupid thing, yeah.

You blearily open your eyes, and see Kumatora looking down at you. Behind her are some of the maintenance guys you've seen working around the floor, unpacking what looks to be a rather comfortable - if intimidating - high-backed black leather chair. The sort Bond villains use.

"Anyway, um, Miss Mami told me to wake you up, since you're supposed to have your haircut tonight. Also asked me to tell you that everyone's waiting for you back home, and I'm supposed to drive you there."

Ah. Right. Um. Well. You'll be ready in just a few, you reckon. You sit up slowly, scratching your head while smacking your lips.

"You got some drool on you, sempai. Left corner."

...Thanks, you tell her, just as you wipe at your mouth with your sleeve.

Yeah, you're doing great as Warmaster. No problem.

The drive to your apartment is a short one. Not much traffic, considering rush hour and everything. Kumatora seemed all too ready to leave, but you shanghaied her into coming along with you. Might as well start things off right, even if you did somehow mess up with Yuma earlier, eh?

As soon as you come within a few feet of your apartment door, however - with Kumatora tagging around, clearly pleased at being invited (she couldn't stop thanking you) - it's then that you hear an echoing report come from behind the door. Followed by what sounded like Midori and Kyoko shrieking, and Sayaka cursing herself a blue streak.

"Sempai, that sounded like...!" Kumatora's face goes pale as she tugs on your sleeve.

Yes. A gunshot. You can't place what caliber.

It's...it's fine. No reason to overreact. Must've been something that only sounded like a gunshot, not a gunshot exactly. You're being paranoid. Stop being paranoid.

...Still, you pull a gun from your Shield, just in case. You let out a sigh in relief; it's not golden, just your usual Beretta M9. You thumb the safety off and glance at Kumatora - she seems to be ready for anything, too, judging by her expression. You nod at her, and then knock at the door with your free hand.

Nothing, except some whispering. You knock again, and hushed giggling reaches your ears. Finally, after what seems like an eternity, the door's locks undo themselves with a series of clicks, and it revolves out of view to reveal...Tomoe Mami, unharmed and intact.

...And her white dress shirt seemingly soaked through and rendered transparent by...champagne? Do you smell champagne?

"Oh, Chiaki-san, you're just in time!" Mami greets you with a beaming smile - her cheeks flushed, but whether it's from champagne or in the embarrassment of being an inadvertent participant to a Wet T-shirt contest, you don't know. "Well, I suppose a bit late, since Kyoko-san got impatient and got started with the food. Sayaka's gotten her under control, don't worry."

It's then that she notices you staring, and looks down at her own blouse. "Ah, er, I wanted to get the champagne open when you came in, but I sort of had an accident, and--" It's then that you hear a certain russian arms dealer giggle somewhere inside your apartment, along with what suspiciously sounds like a ravenous beast gorging itself on food.

Misaka? Misaka's here?


>> No.25237318


"I picked up Misaka-chan to join us, since I thought you'd want her to be here, too." Mami smiles. "That's alright, isn't it?...Oh, hello, Kumatora-chan! Pleased to have you join us!"

"A-ah, good evening, Miss Tomoe," Your subordinate hastily bows. "S-sorry if I'm unexpected. The...the Warmaster invited me, and--"

"Oh, no, it's fine! It's fine, right, Chiaki-san?"

You can't stop staring.

Pale lace design, minimal frills, yet tasteful. Front-clasp. Push-up.

"Sempai? Sempai!" Kumatora elbows you hard in the ribs, making you wince but not making you break your stare. "Sempai, Miss Tomoe asked you--"

Yes. Yes. Things are fine forever.

Another dig in your ribs, and you finally break out of your trance. You turn towards Kumatora and give her thanks, before murmuring something approaching thanks to the blonde. Averting your eyes from her front.

...Mami really does get this reaction from you, doesn't she?

"Well, come on in, anyway! You should have told me this was going to be a housewarming party, Chiaki-san, I'd have made more food!" Mami ushers the both of you into your own apartment. "Good thing Sayaka-san came here just in time, and we ordered out a bit more. Western food, burgers and pizza, just for something new this time. And yes, before you ask," She says as you open your mouth. "...I made you pancakes. It's by your chair. I also brought you what you asked for - we'll look at it together while I'm giving you your haircut, okay?"

Okay. That's fine. It's...fine.

You manage a smile as she leans in to place a kiss on your cheek.

"Welcome home, Chiaki-san. For real, this time."

Yes. For real, this time.

You're not sure if you deserve this, but you don't particularly care. Not right now.

You can only wish that this doesn't end all that soon.


>> No.25237335


. . .

Upon entering, you see the small handful of people in the world you actually give a damn about. Sayaka is sitting on the living room sofa, with Misaka on her lap. Kyoko is sitting in front of the food-stocked table, cross-legged, dual-wielding two slices of cheese-laden pizza. Midori is holding a half-empty bottle of champagne, her own white shirt also soaked through and clinging to her chest, revealing interesting....curves. A printed banner is pinned up up on the wall, spelling out the letters 'CONGRATURATIONS, MURDERFACE' in cheerful, kiddy typeface.

Both Misaka and Midori immediately exclaim as you enter, and you manage a smile before getting the wind nearly knocked out of you through a russian arms dealer missile right into the gut. She hugs you for all you're worth, and you give her a thorough head-patting as she tells you just how much she's missed you, and how you should promise never to forget her again.

You promise, of course. You never will.

"Oi, Murderface!" Kyoko cheers, holding up a slice of pizza. ...Judging by the boxes stacked on the living room table, Mami's ordered enough for an entire squad. "Nice party! Thought it was just gonna be a regular sleepover, hah!"

"It was going to be, until she suddenly changed her mind," Sayaka snaps. "...Welcome home, anyway." She tosses this your way, and you give her a nod.

Midori works up a smile of her own, despite...well, the wet shirt and everything. "S-sorry about the mess, sempai. Just wanted to help out."

You shake your head. It's fine. She doesn't need to worry. You'll just clean it up later.

"Well, I'll help out!" She insists, before grinning and giving you a hug. "Welcome home, sempai. And, er, maybe put the gun away?"

Ah. Yeah. Right. Away the gun goes, back into your Shield. That's taken care of.

Well, looks like the housewarming party is in full swing. Kumatora's joined Kyoko, but not after greeting Sayaka and asking permission.

Just went back and checked, we both have it wrong.

We put the hat on him before handing him to Kumatora, but Kumatora made no effort to take him before we handed him over. And she showed no particular reaction to him one way or the other.

>Your response is of course to take off the Warmaster Cap and place it on the Incubator. Of course, it's a miserable fit - the hat's not quite made with mutant cat head sizes in mind - but as it tips forward, the brim effectively rendering Kyuubey blind, his...prehensile secondary ears or whatever they're called move up to carefully lift the headgear out of the way. "...Matsuda, please stop joking around. Really, this should be beneath you." The Incubator is miffed now. "What purpose does this serve?" Science, you reply. With the damnable hat on him, more or less, you hold him out to Kumatora, who's now just looked up, blinking in surprise. "E-eh? Semp--er, Warmaster, what is it?" Kumatora's brow furrows, reflexively reaching out to take Kyuubey from your hands. "Does...does the Incubator need me to carry him to the elevator? If that's the case, I can easily--" No, no. Does she feel anything when looking at this particular Kyuubey? The one with the dashing hat? "Well, it is a rather fetching hat, Warmaster," Kumatora says after a moment, staring at your boss. "No offense to Sir Kyuubey, of course, but I rather think the Warmaster wears it much better."

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story."

This is because we were holding him out at her, making her assume we wanted her to take him.

It wasn't that the hat made her want to take him, it's that the fact that we were holding him out to her made her assume we WANTED her to take him.

This...this is the first time you've been to a party. Well, one that's being held for you, anyway. You've been dragged along to Kharn's celebrations, that much you remember, and there was always the Officio get-togethers with the raffles and the Christmas parties and so on. You've always been a wallflower in all of those things, drinking yourself to sleep in a corner. But now...well. This is your party, and you get to enjoy it any way you want.

You pat Misaka on the head a few more times, before taking off your hat and putting it on her. It doesn't seem to have an effect, although she does look cuter with it on. You send her back to Sayaka, whose expression seems to soften when she sees the russian arms dealer with the hat. ...You very nearly laughed, but your attention was stolen by Midori taking you by the arm - wet t-shirt and everything - and leading you to your chair, where your own stack of freshly-made pancakes sat on the side table, waiting for you. You stop by Kyoko for a second to touch fists with the red-haired Eversor, who continued to stuff her face of pizza without even missing a beat.

...You mumble thanks without staring too much, allowing yourself pushed onto the most comfortable chair in the world. You ask her if...if she's going to change, or something? Doesn't champagne get sticky?

"Well, um, I'll just take a shower later, sempai. Besides, it's not that bad." She pulls at the collar of her shirt, before letting it snap back - confirming that she's, uh, not wearing anything under the cotton material. Mami seems to be in the same school of thought, although she'd unbuttoned her shirt down to the fourth button, which...well, draws your eyes like nothing else. "Ah, in any case, please enjoy yourself, sempai! There's a lot of pizza, burgers are coming in any moment now, and you've got your pancakes!"


>> No.25238174

By god maybe we should do this...

Could we do this? Is this doable?

>> No.25238175

Really? I'd have to say that it seems pretty doubtful.
And intentionally? Implying that you'd easily do it unintentionally because you don't think your ideas through properly, given the idea you put forward.

>> No.25238177


"Take it easy with her, Midori-chan. Our Warmaster doesn't mix well with parties." Mami chides the Callidus, as she pours you a glass of the bubbly stuff. She pushes it into your hand. "Here. Now, you know I try not to encourage your drinking, Chiaki-san, but there's an occassion, and it's just champagne." She clinks her bottle against your glass. "Cheers!"

You murmur the customary reply, before taking a sip of the strange bubbling fluid. Mami, meanwhile, takes a healthy slug from the bottle.

With that, you try to enjoy your housewarming party as...best as you can. Which means that you immediately tucked into your pile of pancakes. Blissfully spearing, chewing and swallowing each and every forkful. It's pancakes like you've never had them before. And with the captivating scenery in front of you, well...sometimes you wonder if this is the universe trying to give back for everything it's taken away from you, even just a little bit.

As the proceedings continued, Kyoko revealed a surprise: she'd found your old bomber jacket, the one she gave you that one Christmas. You'd forgotten about that, actually - in fact, it was the one you were wearing when Kyoko set you on fire - but it seems to be repaired, looking like brand new. You put it on, and continue eating pancakes while the rest of the party continued. After a few drinks, it seemed that Midori remembered what she was there for, too - and had placed herself behind your chair, styling your hair in every which way, barring that of actually cutting it.


>> No.25238192


The party wound down much too early. After three bottles of champagne and the rest of the pizzas tucked away, Kyoko and Sayaka decided that they needed to get back. Well, Kyoko did, Sayaka was much too drunk and grabby to be left in your apartment. Misaka was fetched by Tiny Pete, of all people, and you watched the terminator hurl itself over the railing - its descent slowed down by the deafening roar of what looks like a massive jump-pack attached to its back. Kumatora, still sober yet really full, excused herself, but not before giving you an awkward hug of your own and taking one from Mami herself.

Midori was a lightweight, clearly - she fell asleep on the couch after three glasses of bubbly. Sayaka had made sure to put a pillow under her head and covered her with a blanket. The Callidus, now snoring and dead to the world, left you and Mami alone in your apartment.

"Well, Chiaki-san. Let's get that haircut of yours out of the way, alright?" She says this with a smile, and you nod. You've finished the pancakes, all except the bottom two. You're saving this for...later. For someone who, despite how insane and bloodthirsty she may seem, is actually very lonely and in need of some company.

Working quickly, sitting behind your comfy chair, Mami had you set up for your haircut. With the cloth drape to prevent the cut hair from falling on your clothes and everything.

"So, Chiaki-san, how do you want your hair to look like?"

I was pretty shocked to see Kong show up on time, but I didn’t say anything about it - Miss Tomoe was there, and she’d probably made a point of escorting her. No...Guess I should say Miss Tomoe dropped her off, like an obliging older sister. Or an overenthusiastic young mother, getting her little girl to play with the other kids for the first time. She smiled her bright, understanding smile – edged that night with a little bit of mischief – as she urged Kong forward, closer to me. ...It was definitely more like a mother. Couldn’t tell offhand if Kong really wanted to be here, but it seemed like Mommy Tomoe knew what was best.

Really hoped it wasn’t just for my sake.

They’d spent a lot of time deciding what Kong should wear, though. Or at least, Miss Tomoe had. Kong herself looked completely out of place. Wouldn’t look at me. Probably embarrassed about how...clean she was. Like she’d slept. Showered. Hadn’t been drinking, or even smoking, for at least the past few hours. It made her look younger. Cuter. Like an ordinary girl. I felt like kind of a pervert after a couple of seconds, but it wasn’t like...wasn’t like this was a booty call or something. She shooed Miss Tomoe away as she leaned in one last time to fuss with the collar on her jacket, and after the blonde left, she mumbled something to me and held out her hand. Turned bright red, too.

“...Don’t let go. Not for a second.”

...It was cool out, that night. Not freezing, but colder than we usually got in Santa Destroy. Cold enough for little snowflakes to fall from the sky, glittering in the city lights like a thousand tiny stars. I could feel them melt against my skin, tiny prickles of chill and water that dissolved instantly. Looking back, we left a trail of empty space in our wake, as she tugged me along with her small, slender hand.

That night, the whole world was gray. Everything except for her, anyway. Kong. ...Murderface.

It felt grounded and real, more real than it did in color. ...Didn’t tell her any of that, either. Would have been weird. Even weirder than being dragged down the street by my hand. If I did tell her, she probably would have thought it was stupid. And it would have shattered this peaceful, all-consuming silence, something I felt like she didn’t want to do.

...I sped up a little, and even though she looked away, I caught her blushing. Guess I...might have been, too. But all I had to do was pull my scarf up over my face. ...Just a little cold, Kong.

I didn’t know where we were going. Took about fifteen minutes of being pulled down Mitakhiara’s motionless streets before I thought to ask, and when I did, Kong slowed to a stop. ...She didn’t think about it, when she came here. It was just...her place. A place for her to come to be alone. To get away from the bullshit. I sort of...hoped I knew what she meant. That she wanted to share it. …Didn’t say that either, though. I just told her that I sort of understood. Used to be the same way when I’d dream. Long, aimless walks to nowhere. Fuck the destination, the journey was the whole thing. Something softened in her expression, and I shot her a smile.

...She didn’t see it, thanks to the scarf, and I felt really stupid after a moment. Like she could read my mind, though, she laughed a little bit anyway.

“I...” She stumbled over her words a little, like she wasn’t accustomed to them. “I’m glad you get it.” ...It was something rare. A moment of honesty, without the shell. The fear and distrust. ...Like the black and white world around us, it was an endless moment without all the bullshit.

...Do you like hurting people?

“What?” Couldn’t help but laugh at the look she gave me. It seemed like it’d be completely natural to Kong, but…guess she wasn’t the kind of person who thought about things like that. I repeated the question, and she made a face like I’d just sprouted a frog head.

“No. I shoot people to help save the orphanage where I grew up.” Knew it. She was lying about the amnesia the whole time.

She slipped a cigarette in her mouth, shaking her head at my shitty joke. I fumbled for the lighter in my pocket, then lit it for her. ...We had to keep holding hands, after all. She had a way of talking without taking her cigarette out – like an old pro, the hero of a detective movie - and as she responded, she passed one my way. Wanted to know why I asked.

...It was kind of stupid, but it was the first thing the old Warmaster – Miss Marigold – asked me, when I met her. ...It took me a couple of days to come up with an answer. Next time I saw her after that, I tried to stab her in the stomach. She just crushed my knife into powder. Wasn’t even worried, or angry. Kind of looked like she’d stepped in something, if I had to put a word to it. She told me I didn’t like it enough, if that was all it took to stop me. Then she got to work on beating it into me.

“...So? Do you like hurting people enough now?”

I don’t come when I stab someone in the throat. ...But it’s kind of become an art. I’m proud of it. I enjoy it. It’s what I do.

She repeated ‘an art’ to herself, with a hint of a smile, and nodded just slightly. Wasn’t that different for a Vindicare, at the end of the day. Not like I didn’t know that, but back home, we made a pretty big deal out of it. It’d only become more of a joke with the new Warmaster, Mary...Totally Awesome Sweet Alabama Liquid Snake, the Vindicare Prima. At least, among the few people that could say it and get away with it. …I rattled off a couple of my favorites.

‘Callidus don’t remember how to cry. Eversors never knew. But it doesn’t matter; Vindicares do it enough for all of us.’

‘How many Vindicares does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Nobody knows – they won’t get closer than twenty-one feet.’

…Alright, that second one was pretty bad. But it was a great way to piss them off. They always got pretty eager to prove you wrong. And when they tried to take a swing…Try punching an Eversor once, see what happens. Callidus, at least in the Eighth, weren’t a whole lot nicer about it, either.

Kong looked annoyed. Maybe even angry. ...Didn’t seem much happier when I told her she was one of the good ones. I scrambled to add ‘Like Miss Tomoe’ on the end, and it seemed to help.

A couple of quiet minutes passed, with both of us finishing our cigarettes and blowing the smoke into the air, trying to freeze it into patterns. I put mine out on the concrete next to me before I spoke again, about the second question the Warmaster asked me.

Do you like flowers? Do you understand them?

…Guess it was two, but they were asked together. Every time, together.

“...You’re making that up.” She flicked her cigarette butt over the side of the building. ...It froze mid-flight, naturally. ...I told her that no, that was one of the other things she’d ask us. That was the one she asked us the most, the most important one. Usually after trying to kill us with flowers.

It didn’t help us understand them, but it did make Annie start cutting every flower she saw in half. So that was pretty funny.

...She still didn’t seem to care. Not that I blamed her. It took...it took me a while to care at all, too. To understand it at all. ...Didn’t say that, though I started to, a few times. While we sat there.

...Blue roses. I broke the silence again. Every night with Kong, I broke the silence more times than the rest of my life combined. Kind of a nice feeling. Neither of us…really had to talk, with the other there. It was always a choice. Always important.

I fumbled with my Japanese for a minute. I’d become one of the more fluid speakers in the Officio – along with V and Annie, and nobody was sure about Nakajima – but it was...it needed to be said right. ...Needed to be worded in a way someone like...someone like Murderface would understand. Without it sounding completely stupid.

Blue roses were the first flower I came to understand. ...They’re my favorite. Symbols of mystery and impossible dreams. Just by existing, they prove that…that they’re not really impossible.

...Nope. Still stupid. My cheeks burned red, and I tried to distract myself by fiddling with my skirt.

...Kong stared at me for a minute, like she couldn’t believe what I’d just said. Her jaw worked a little, and at first, I thought she was just going to say ‘what?’ again. ...In the end, she just squeezed my hand, staring down at the frozen world below. ...Her expression had gone soft again, and after thinking about it for a second, I leaned over and pressed my lips against her cheek. Just for a second.

Just to thank her for not laughing.

The last thing I remembered from that night was the smell of her hair, along with the feel of her face buried in my neck. We weren’t drunk this time, just...happy to be together. I guess. I was happy. She...seemed to be. It was a little cold to be lying around, but she wasn’t. Even with cold concrete at my back, it was the warmest I’d felt in...a long time.

I didn’t dream, which made waking up even more jarring than it usually was. There was a heavy weight on my body, lighter than Kong, but apparently balancing on my torso. Whatever it was was poking my cheek, clearly unaware of how rare it was for me to sleep without screaming myself awake. Or dying. …Maybe that’s what it thought happened. It breathed heavily onto my face, leaving a scent of sugar and something I couldn’t quite identify.

“Wendyyy...” A small, soft whimper, from whatever was poking me. At length, I finally opened my eyes, only to see two blood-red coals in the midst of a universe of darkness. It was Lily, her face so close to mine that her bunny hood swallowed the entirety of my vision. ...It took a second to process, then gently took hold of her midsection and lifted her off of me, mumbling out a few words of greeting to the little squirt.

It was the earliest part of the morning, with the whole world cast in a blue-gray glow, and for a moment I groggily wondered if I was still frozen in time. ...That wasn’t possible, though. Not without Kong, wherever she went.

“Wendyyy...we hafta get ready for the festivaaal...” Lily pouted under her hood. She was trying not to be a brat, I could tell, but we’d stayed a few extra days in Japan just so we could all go together. Dorothy and Annie went out of their way to pick out yukata for everyone and everything. Seemed like Lily was jumping the gun, though. Probably made a mistake in telling her about how good festival food was supposed to be; we’d end up getting there hours early if she got any more impatient. …If you could be early for a festival. Wasn’t really sure.

Not like I wasn’t kind of excited, myself. But it would have been nice to… ...Ah, whatever. Not her kind of thing anyway. I scraped myself up off the roof and stretched, trying to blink the light from my eyes. Had to remember to thank the kid later. She probably snuck off to sniff me out like this, and she’d transformed to do it. Probably even used a little magic.

As we headed down off the building and back toward our hotel, I noticed something sticking out of one of Lily’s big, baggy sleeves. A little hint of blue. Asked her about it, and she gave me a wide-eyed look, like I’d caught her sneaking cookies again. She evaded the question a bit, but I managed to convince her I wasn’t going to be mad, and asked her to show it to me. It wasn't as big a deal as she was making it out to be; probably just found a little treasure somewhere. When she held it up, though, my breath caught in my throat.

...It was a blue rose. She said it was next to me. Found it before she woke me up.

Odette groaned. Rain pounded on the steel hide of Sleepy Sue. Her phone was ringing somewhere. All she could remember of the previous day was being frustrated at a lack of leads and getting drunk out of her mind with Lotte. She'd found her culprit - Fennel Vance - but little more than that. Fennel had been one of the Officio's top 'liquidators' as Fubey gently put it. Her speciality laid in terminations, assassinations, eviscerations and a host of other unsavoury ations that would drive any sane girl mad. Odette was only left to wonder why the incubator hadn't kept a closer eye on someone so deep in blood.

The one-eyed magical girl stretched her arm out, feeling around the floor of Sleepy Sue for her phone. After a few moments of unintentionally feeling up, then rolling over, the blonde Callidus, Odette grabbed hold of her smart phone and rolled back into position. For god's sake, she thought, had they really ended up sleeping together twice in one week? Odette sighed to herself. She must have been even lonelier than she thought.

"Yo," she muttered into her phone.

"Odette, it's Therese," the warmaster greeted. "We've got something about the case that you need to hear. Something big."

"Whatimezit?" The silver-haired girl mumbled.

"It's- It's almost noon," Therese replied. There was the distinct burst of static as she let out a long sigh. "I even waited until I was sure you'd be up. I told you that you should stay in warmaster suite. You're starting to slip again."

"'m not slipping," said the small Eversor as she hopped out of her cot and scooped up a pair of jeans. "Just frustrated 'sall." After a moment's thought she added, "'nd maybe a bit hungover. What's the news?"

"Two of our Eversors were investigating a murder," the warmaster answered. "Looks like they've found where your mystery girl is hiding."

"No shit?" Odette gasped as she threw on a bra and fresh white t-shirt. "Where is she?"

"A club downtown, it looks like. Working for a small-time gangbanger. But you really should hear the rest of this in person. That, and I don't think you've gotten a chance to see my office yet. Isn't that right?"

"Alright, alright," the one-eyed girl grumbled. "Your office in the same place mine was?"

"There's only one warmaster's office, Odette."

"I'm not slipping. I promise," Odette smirked as she threw on her jacket. "See you in a few."

"I'll see you then," the warmaster giggled just before the line went dead.

Sleepy Sue's engine revved as Odette pocketed her phone and took a seat at her make-shifted desk. The case files were stilled splayed out across it with lines and paragraphs circled and underlined with red pen. The former warmaster's gaze swept over each page as she let out a long breath. It all seemed so worthless now. After spending nearly a week pouring over the notes, everything seemed to just fall into her lap. With an inward chuckle, she suddenly recalled that working assignment's as warmaster was mostly the same way. She could have others running around gathering information and it still counted toward her own quota. Somehow.

Perhaps, Odette thought, it wouldn't be so bad to try an earn her position back. Therese already came dangerously close to treating her as if she were still her superior. Far too many people did. Odette couldn't decide if it was flattering or troublesome that so many still held her in high-esteem. You don't sit as warmaster for three years and expect everyone to just accept your abdication, it seemed. No matter how callous and irresponsible she had grown.

>> No.25239017

Odette's thoughts were interrupted by her blonde companion's stirrings, no doubt roused by the dull thrumming of engines. With a strong yawn, Lotte propped herself up with one arm and ran a hand through her hair.

"Mornin," Odette called out, barely bothering to look up from her work. She'd already cleared off the desk and taken out her poetry notepad, lightly tapping her pen against the wood.

"Yo," the blonde greeted. "Where we going?"

"Terry's," the one-eyed girl replied. "Said she has something for the case."

"Can I come?" Lotte asked, grinning from ear to ear.

Odette shrugged. "Up to you. Didn't think you two got along."

"Either that or I stay in the car," the Callidus responded, returning the shrug. "It's creepy to be in Sue alone."

Odette spun around, mouth agape. "Did you just call my baby creepy?"

"Yeah, I mean," Lotte waved a finger around lazily, "you hear that? Engines. WHERE ARE HER ENGINES?"

Odette blinked her one eye several times. "Okay, point."

The blonde gave a knowing nod as the two settled into a comfortable silence. They didn't have much to talk about anymore, it seemed. They'd told each other every story they had, didn't share much in the way of interests and hadn't worked together on any assignments in months. After a few moments, Odette glanced over, only to find the other girl quietly staring at her with an implacable grin on her face.

"What?" The silver-haired girl asked, cocking an eyebrow.

"You're really pretty," Lotte responded almost immediately, almost as if she had been waiting for the question.

Odette's pale face turned a bright pink as she forced herself to look back down at her notebook. "Don't be weird, Lotte. You promised you wouldn't make things weird."

True, Odette had always been told she had a pretty face. It had a certain mature charm to it despite her small stature - the kind of face that seemed liked that of a caring older sister. Or, at least, it would were it not for the near constant scowling and ill temper.

>> No.25239025

The one-eyed girl found herself tapping her pen and drumming her fingers faster and faster as her mind wandered. She was suddenly made painfully aware of the busty blonde lying buck-naked in her bed.

"Hey," Lotte prodded. "Want to go another round?"

Odette thought about it for a good second before shaking her head and rolling her eyes. "I just got dressed," she huffed. "And we're almost there."

"Ah come on," the blonde drawled, laying the covers over herself in just the right way to show off her curves while keeping the important bits hidden. "Just a quick one."

"I'll throw you out in the rain, Laufson," Odette grumped. "You know I will. And I'll keep your clothes."

"Y-you wouldn't really throw me out naked," Lotte laughed nervously, "right?"

The silver-haired girl simply smiled and turned back to her poetry, humming to herself.

Lotte grunted and lifted herself out of bed, crawling over to the pile of clothes left on the floor. As she looked around the interior of the armoured car, the Callidus couldn't help but shiver and hold herself.

"Do you have the AC on or something, O?" She asked, quickly throwing on as much clothing as possible.

Odette shook her head. "Nope."

Lotte looked around, still holding herself, suddenly looking even more nervous than before, then nodded silently.


>> No.25239036

The tall Callidus and the short Eversor breezed through security at the Officio's headquarters, making for the first of the Violet-clearance floors - the warmaster's office. The two stood silently in the elevator, dripping wet from the rain, for several minutes until Odette felt a hand prodding her shoulder. She turned her head to find Lotte toying with a crunchy, wet and white substance between her fingers.

"Hey, O," she started, examining the stuff inquisitively, "is this frost?"

Odette shrugged and mumble a quick "I dunno" as the doors slid open.

There were several doors in the corridor; each one an office for the rank leaders. Most were empty for the time being, with higher-ranked magical girls handling business in the other major cities within the Officio's territory. In contrast to the incubator's barren hall, the office corridor was decorated with potted plants and modern art. Odette silently questioned exactly how much Therese had changed. She remembered dimmer lights and muted tones instead of bright pastel shades.

The silver-haired girl knocked firmly on the door furthest door, while her companion cried "ROOM SERVICE!"

After a moment, the door was opened, not by Therese, but by an incredulous looking Megan Laurie. The short, black-haired girl blinked a few times as her bangs fell over her eyes yet again.

"You're not the warmaster," remarked Lotte.

The small Eversor - but not quite as small as Odette, she noticed - floundered about for a few seconds before she was rescued by Therese calling from within.

"Odette?" She shouted. "Is that you?"

"Yo," the one-eyed Eversor greeted, gently worming her way through the door and past the star-struck magical girl.

>> No.25239046

Therese's office, Odette noted, was rather different from the one she used to call her own. It was modern and chic, with the walls painted a light grey and all the furniture in black. She even had a sofa pushed into one of the corners closest to the door, which was currently occupied by the second member of the Eversor duo, Mona Bernard.

Odette furrowed her brow and scanned the room as the warmaster stepped up to her.

"Was this room always here?" She asked, a look of confusion on her face as she shook Therese's hand.

Therese tilted her head, just as confused. "What do you mean?"

"This room," the silver-haired said, cautiously pointing all around, "was this always here?"

"Yes," the warmaster answered, nodding much in the same way one would to a mental patient. "This used to be your office. Remember?"

"Nah, nah," Odette laughed. "My office had those sweet woodcarvings and a throne and..." Her voice trailed off as her face contorted into a look of sad understanding. "What did you do to my office?"

"It looked ridiculous, Odette," Therese replied with a slight roll of her eyes. "You don't expect me to work in an office that looked like something out Lord of the Rings, do you? You want me to sit in a throne carved with YOUR greatest moments?"

"What did you do with my stuff?!" The one-eyed magical girl whined, clearly distressed.

"I threw it away," Therese stated bluntly.

Odette's mouth openned and closed several times as she tried to form words. All that managed to come out was, "Buh-but my throne..."

The warmaster let out a long sigh. "Look. If it's that important, your throne is still in storage. It's," she waved her hand in the air, trying to find the right words, "an icon, I guess. All of the girls from back then recognize it. I couldn't just throw it out like that."

"Good, goo-"

"But I sold everything else," Therese added with a stern look.

Odette nodded to herself, conceding the point. "Fair 'nuff."

>> No.25239052

It was then that the warmaster suddenly turned her attention to the Callidus, who had taken a laid-back position on the couch with both arms wrapped around the two junior Eversors as she regaled a story of Odette's earlier days.

"And so Snake says to Odette-"

"Laufson, what are you doing here?" Therese butted in, maintaining her serious demeanour.

The blonde looked up and blinked innocently. "What? I'm not allowed to hang out with an old friend?"

"It's fi-" Odette started, but was suddenly silenced by Therese raising her hand.

"The time when we were friends has come and gone, Lotte," the warmaster growled. "If you have no relevance to the case, I would kindly ask you to leave."

"Terry," a calm, cold voice rang out. The room temperature took a dive as all eyes were suddenly on Odette. The small girl took a step forward until she was practically standing on the warmaster's toes. "Lotte's with me," she hissed. Therese felt one of Odette's delicate hands gently alight on her shoulder, then violently pull her down to the smaller girl's level. "Warmaster or not, you do not shush me like a child."

There was a delicate clinking of chains as Therese's hammer materialized in her hand. It had always been a stark contrast to her usual demeanour - and a good reminder of her temper - to see the enormous slab of metal. The hammer was small enough to be comfortably wielded in one hand, but large enough to be used with both for a little extra power. Most striking of all, however, was the shining silver chain attached to the end of the haft, which snaked up the warmaster's forearm and coiled around it.

Odette's eye shifted to the weapon for a moment before returning to glare at Therese. "It's just Lotte. Calm down," she said, her voice coming out soothing yet stern.

>> No.25239068

The rusty-haired girl glanced down at the hammer, then took a deep breath. A chill went up her spine as she noticed that she could suddenly see the air escaping her lips. With a nod, she stepped back and the hammer disintegrated. "You're... You're right. I, uh, I'm sorry."

"Atta girl," Odette said, grinning as she slapped a hand on the warmaster's back. "Gotta keep that temper in check. If we're gonna rumble, we better make sure to sell tickets first. So what are we waiting for?"

Therese adjusted her cap and cleared her throat loudly, still slightly embarassed about losing herself so easily. "We're, erm, just waiting on Fubey. The incubator's were supposed to be having a meeting. He should be here any second-"

As if on cue, there was a soft knock on the door, sounding as if it came from a mere foot off the ground. The occupants looked at each other, as if each expecting someone else to open it. Odette caved first, giving a reluctant huff as she pulled the door open. With a dull whirring sound, the Seventeenth incubator rolled in atop his mighty steed.

"Odette, how lovely to see you," he said as he entered. "I apologize for my tardiness. I was a few minutes late to the meeting and had to stay behind for the Eighth to fill me in. Ah, Miss Laufson has joined us? I trust you are finished with your previous assignment?"

"Oh," the Callidus piped up, "yeah, was going to go see you about that. All taken care of."

"Excellent, excellent," the incubator said, beaming with a look nearing contentment. "A pleasure to have you on board then."

"Fubey, I didn't buy you that for you to ride on," Therese grumbled.

The incubator made the Roomba do a quick three-sixty as he entered the room, then hit a button causing it to go about its usual vacuuming route.

"Ah, but this way I can clean the office everywhere I go."

Odette couldn't keep her eyes off of it as she took a seat on the sofa's arm. "What did the Eighth say about it?"

"He," the incubator started, making a point to avert his gaze, "thought it was a bit silly. In much stronger terms."

The one-eyed girl smirked. "I give him two weeks before he gets one."

"One," Lotte added. "He won-"

The blonde was interrupted as Therese loudly cleared her throat. "Ladies," she said, sweeping her gaze across the room, "I believe we're all present."

Mona shared a brief look with her partner, then nodded as she pulled her phone from her pocket. "This was recorded last night at about, uh," she flipped the phoen around and squinted at it, "just after eleven. We thought we were interrogating a man about a gang-killing. We got a bit more than we bargained for."

With a swipe of her finger, Rossi's testimony began playing. The room was silent - save for Fubey's Roomba going about its route - as the terrified man describe Charles Helk, Club Mist, the girl with the golden chain and finally the soul gems being sold on the black market. No one said a word for several minutes after it ended. Odette nodded to herself as the information processed, each piece slowly falling into place.

"Meg and Mona, was it?" The one-eyed girl finally asked.

"Y-yeah," the taller Eversor answered.

Odette turned to Therese and the incubator. "These two are getting promotions, right?"

"They have only been with us for a month and a half, but," the incubator pondered, stroking his chin with his prehensile moustache, "I suppose something could be arranged."

Therese nodded in agreement, then turned her attention back to the recording. "So I suppose that's it then. We hit the club and see what we can find."

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, kiddo," Odette laughed, making a calming gesture. "Hold your horses here. We don't just storm the castle without a plan."

"O's got a point," Lotte added. "That just ain't the way things are done."

>> No.25239091

"Then what do you propose we do," the warmaster asked, adding a stressed nearly growled, "Odette?" as she cast a glare at the Callidus.

The silver-haired girl paced around the office for several minutes, deep in thought, before finally leaning back on Therese's desk with a satisfied look plastered on her face. "Alright, here's what we're gonna do," she started. "We'll hit them tonight. After we're done here, I'll take Lotte and check out Chuckles' apartment, see if we can dig anything up. That note left at my place still doesn't make sense. I'll swing by when we're done and pick you up. We get Lotte to scout the club, figure things out. We make our plan and then, and ONLY then, do we bust this thing open."

The rest of the girls sat stunned at the sudden strategy laid out before them.

"That... that works," Therese mumbled.

"Odette one," Lotte smirked, chuckling to herself, "Ter-Bear zero."

Odette snapped her fingers and pointed at the blonde. "You shut up."

Meanwhile, the two juniors were whispering amongst themselves, slowly drawing the attention of the rest of the room. After a few moments, the taller of the two cleared her throat while the other twiddled her thumbs nervously.

"We, um, we were just wondering," Mona said, taking a nervous gulp, "if we were still on the assignment. Just, cause, y'know, the thing with Helk is technically ours. I mean, it's okay if you don't want us-"

"That's fine," Odette nodded and shurgged. "I'll pick you two up after we're done too. It'll be a party."

"Actually," Therese said, glancing at the clock on the wall, "I just remembered I have an appointment later. You four okay to hang out until I'm done?"

"We can take care of them until then," Lotte smirked, sidling up to the two juniors. "I can tell them the story of Odette's sweet sixteen party."

"Oh hell no," the one-eyed girl groaned. "Come on, Lotte. Nobody wants to hear that one. Let's get going."

The blonde stood up, then turned to Therese after a thought crossed her mind. "You go on ahead. I need to talk to Ter-Bear in private about something."

After a look of collective confusion, the two junior Eversors left the room followed shortly by Odette and the incubator. Therese sighed as she stepped around her desk and took a seat.

"Well?" She asked expectantly, folding her hands and cocking an eyebrow. "Make it quick."

"Listen," Lotte sighed, taking a moment to collect her thoughts. "I know you don't like me. Jealous that I'm fucking Odette and you're not or whatever the fuck it is. That doesn't matter right now."


"You had to have noticed it," the blonde stated firmly. "The cold. You felt it, right?"

The warmaster nodded slowly. "What of it?"

"'What of it'," Lotte groaned and rolled her eyes, "you fucking know 'what of it'. Today the rain was freezing on her damn jacket." Lotte threw down her arms and shook her head violently, her words panicked. "She's coming back."

Therese glared at the Callidus as understanding suddenly struck her. "So what is this? A warning? A threat?"

"Dunno," the Callidus made a sly grin and giggled to herself. "Maybe both, maybe neither. But I'd watch out if I were you. Even I don't know if I should be afraid or not."


Odette pulled her ear away from the door and stepped back, trying to lean against the wall and act natural. She took a deep breath and looked up and down the hall. For a fraction of a second, she could swear she saw a girl with long silvery-white hair and a black baseball cap grinning at her from the end of the hallway. The one-eyed girl shoved her hands into her pockets, suddenly aware that they were freezing cold.


And that's a wrap. Happy 100th thread, deculture!

Then you could atleast be honourable about it and delete your illegitimate vote

>> No.25239296

Oh, stop being such a nigger.

>> No.25239298

So. A hundred long, awesome, content-filled threads. People lining up to do artwork and writing and contribute their own little pieces of the universe you've built. Crowds of fans just waiting for the next thread. How does it feel to be this awesome, Decu?

>> No.25239432

Apparently exhausting, I think he went to bed already.

>> No.25239510

Well, he said "questions answered after the write-ups", and the write-ups only finished, like, ten minutes before my question.

>> No.25239530

Chiaki and Midori Ponytails lining up into a heart art when?

>> No.25239543

He also has to be up for work in like four hours, think he stayed up late to make sure we finally got to the haircut.

>> No.25239577

Deculture is on moon time, that means it is roughly 2:40am his time

He is probably in bed given he has work in the morning which for him is only a few hours away

>> No.25239579

He completely disappeared off the radar.

>> No.25239683

I never imagined I'd ever get this upset over a cliffhanger based on hairstyles, of all things.

>> No.25239714

Ah, I see. Even more awesome than I'd suspected, then.

>> No.25239728

>> No.25239915

See, I can't be arsed to actually count the votes myself.

>> No.25240756

Dude, I was out doing my groceries and then catched up on the hair thing. Don`t be so fucking That Guy.

>butthurt shortfags
>Some people joined later
>Some people were away while Decu was still posting
>They still vote even if it doesn`t count

What the fuck is wrong with you? Why so anal retentive? Do you have some sort of mental sickness that compels you to ruin fun?
