"Yes!" Tigerly wiggle!

She wraps them in a faint cloud of flame - gives everyone else the vague impression they've vanished entirely -

Then: cute girl time! (She actually looks incredibly normal, like a college student ready to go to class - a very peppy college student, but. She's wearing a black skater dress printed with skulls wearing rainbow flower crowns, a red fanny pack in lieu of a belt, knee high rainbow socks, black running shoes with a glowing fiber optic inlay that's slowly circling between colors, several bracelets and a rainbow beaded choker... And no mask whatsoever.)

"Any recommendations?" she asks. "I'm not actually sure which city this is..."

Permalink

"Unless you want to meet the local heroes, probably not the Starbucks across the street. Uh, is everyone going to see us leaving...?"

Permalink

"Nah, they can't see us already - probably'll think we teleported out or something. And Starbucks gets boring - chains, y'know."

How the fuck do this tigergirl's powers work, this makes no sense.

"Right. There's uh, a bakery? That we'd have to take the bus to get to. I don't know if you- do buses."

Permalink

"I do busses! And I won't even need a bus pass or whatever."

Permalink

Let's go catch a bus, then. Does tigergirl's illusion also cover them walking out the front door?

Permalink

Yep! She's not an amateur.

"What's your name by the way?"

Permalink

"Ellie. What's yours?"

Permalink

"Burning Ruby Tiger Decima, when I'm being all tigery. But a pretty girl like you can call me Ruby."

Permalink

"That's... creative."

Permalink

"Well, I am an artist."

Permalink

"Better than Lady Venom and the Outlaw Kid, I'll give you that much."

Permalink

" - Who?" Those super do not sound like magical girl names. They're way too lame, for one.

Permalink

"They were the ones you fought inside."

Permalink

Unsure frown. "Fighting them was weird... Uh, hey, where is this, and like, do you know anything about those two - ?"

Permalink

"This is Philadelphia. Those two were small time villains. Kid is Lady Venom's latest sidekick, for the last four months or so. She tends to kinda chew through them."

Permalink

Four months is - but the masquerade's been intact, she would've heard if there were powered assholes running around Philly - 

"...So I was fighting a magical girl - Pretty Bubble Sorceress Alicia - and she used some kind of teleport spell on me, and, uh, normal looking humans spitting acid and calling themselves stupid things like Lady Venom is not a feature of the Philadelphia I'm used to. Like I think that would've hit the news?"

Permalink

"...I kind of hate that this is my top guess, but parallel worlds exist and two is a weird number of them to be, so it stands to reason that you're from one of those. Where apparently capes call themselves things like 'Pretty Bubble Sorceress'."

Permalink

"Capes?"

Permalink

"People with powers. Parahumans."

Permalink

"It's 'magical girl' or 'monster' where I'm from - nowadays people sometimes use 'meguca' for the generic even though that's totally biased towards magical girls as default."

Permalink

Snrk. "I think a lot of capes would be upset if they had to be magical girls."

Permalink

"Magical girl powers turning people into girls is actually a weirdly common complaint!"

Permalink

"If you don't have to be a girl to start, I can imagine so."
