a character in “Kalani Magica”, as played by Magus1108


♦ Judith Lillian Cohen ♦


Judith Lillian Cohen


Her entire family calls her 'Judy', for the most part. Judith also heavily encourages her friends, mainly Margaret, to call her 'Judy' as well.






Lesbian; her parents know, but Judith hasn't quite gotten the courage to tell anyone else. Especially Margaret.




Judith's hair is completely natural. Yes, that means that her hair color is naturally green. Don't think about it too hard.


Judith used to wear contacts, but once she became a Puella Magi, her eyesight was pretty much fixed up.


A Puella Magi marking on the nail of her left middle finger.


Judith is pretty average in build. Maybe a bit below average. Before she was a Puella Magi, Judith wasn't the most physical active person around.


Judith loves to wear very frilly and girly clothes. She particularly likes to wear a blouse and skirt combo. Overall she likes to dress prettily.


Judith has her Soul Gem always on her, in the shape of an nondescript ring on her right hand. She also has a large bow she always ties up with her hair that she rarely goes without.


As a Puella Magi, Judith wields a wicked and fearsome scythe. It can cut through anything, and she can increase its size to the height of a skyscraper.


Natural Skills

Judith is a fast learner; once she brings her mind to learn a new skill or some such thing, it doesn't take her long to get a good hold over it. She's also rather good at getting a read of other people's moods

Learned Skills

Judith took a crash course in fighting once she became a Puella Magi, as well as how to properly wield and use her scythe in battle. Judith also learned how to surf when she was young.


Judith can be very emotional at times, which is both a blessing and a curse. Judith is also easy to embarrass, much to her consternation.




Judith is a very touchy-feely girl, and she gets a little too close for comfort for some people.


  • Margaret
  • Yuubey
  • Her little sister Ruth
  • Her family in general
  • Being a Puella Magi


  • Stupid boys
  • Dogs
  • Guns
  • Bullying
  • Tests


Judith has an irrational fear of dogs, for one reason or another. She doesn't really like to be around them. Judith also has an underlying fear of losing her sister Ruth again, so she's very protective of her. And Judith is worried that Margaret might get hurt real badly one day, while out on a Witch hunt.


Judith is a very bubbly and energetic young girl, with a smile always on her face. She takes great joy out of life, and is always eager to make new friends and meet new people. She loves her life, and she especially loves the people around her.

Personal Life

Significant Relationships

Judith is very close and attached to her family, of course. She loves her parents, and is especially proud of her father, who's an astronaut working on the International Space Station. Judith also adores and loves her little sister Ruth, and thinks the world of her. In fact, it was her original loss of Ruth that ended up making Judith into a Puella Magi.

Judith also has a new best friend, that she acquired after making her Contract: Margaret Faust, a veteran Puella Magi. Judith adores Margaret, and thinks of her as the bestest friend ever, and best sempai she could ever have; in fact, Judith is always trying to do everything she can to please Margaret and make her proud. Judith has lost touch with many of her old friends in the past year, so her new friendship with Margaret really cheered her up and has made her quite happy. Recently, however, Judith's feelings toward Margaret have...grown, in a sense.

Judith isn't quite sure when it happened, but she's fully realized now that she's completely in love with Margaret Faust. She's crushing on her mad, and despite her attempts at hiding her new feelings, she's been quite obvious about her crush. She's taken to staring at Margaret when she thinks she isn't looking, especially when Margaret's in her Puella Magi outfit, she's become even more affectionate and touchy-feely with her, and she's taken to blushing when in Margaret's presence. Judith is a bit scared of her new feelings, but at the same time, she can't help them. Love is love, after all.


Judith has two parents and a little sister. They are, respectively, Jeremiah Cohen, her astronaut father; Mary Cohen, her reporter mother; and Ruth Cohen, her adorable little sister.


Judith grew up as a normal girl on Kalani Island, more or less, and she was more than content to live out her days in relative peace. Then...tragedy struck. Her ten year old sister Ruth, alongside many other innocent teachers and students, died during a school shooting. Judith was crushed, of course, and grew into deep despair with the death of her sister. A month passed, and then...her salvation came.

A mysterious entity called Yuubey approached her, and asked her to make a Contract with her; in exchange for becoming a Puella Magi and fighting evil Witches, he would grant her one Wish, whatever it may be.

Judith jumped at the chance, of course, and eagerly agreed to become a Puella Magi, if it meant bringing back her sister. She didn't quite rush into things, however; she knew better than to simply wish Ruth back to life. People already knew she was dead, and would be shocked, to say the least, to see a dead girl among the living again. So, after thinking about it long and hard, Judith came up with her Wish. It was quite simple, and it would save the lives of both her sister, and everyone else who had died that day in the school shooting.

She erased the shooter from existence. And thus, with his absence, her sister was brought back to life.

Judith was overjoyed to have her little sister back, and soon she was back to her old, energetic self. Not long after becoming a Puella Magi, she encountered a fellow Magical Girl named Margaret Faust. The two of them soon stuck up a connection, and Margaret agreed to take Judith under her wing. In the six months that have passed since then, Judith has been Margaret's eager partner, ready and willing to fight against the Witches that plague Kalani Island.


Magical Girl Outfit

Judith's Magical Girl outfit is fairly simplistic. It's a long, flowing, purple cloak that largely encompasses her entire body. It goes fairly well with her whole 'grim reaper' ensemble, to say the least. On another note, Judith used to be entirely naked under that cloak, which she did not know until she checked under the hood, so to speak. Now, however, Judith has added magical underwear underneath her cloak, just so she isn't entirely naked under that thing.

Judith's transformation into her Puella Magi gear is fairly simple as well. She just begins her transformation, and the cloak forms around her body until it's completely there. And, as an additional note, Judith's Soul Gem is embedded into her skin, near the center of her neck, which is thankfully covered up by the collar of her cloak.


So begins...

Judith came into consciousness slowly, blinking her way back to the real world. She gave a light yawn and rolled over in her bed, trying to settle in for a few more minutes or hours of slumber...

"Big Sis! Wake up!" her sister Ruth, however, was not okay with Judith lazying about in bed. The young girl jumped on her elder sister's bed, startling Judith into full consciousness as she bolted upright.

"Ruth!" the Puella Magi glared halfheartedly at her nosy sibling, more miffed by the fact that she wouldn't be able to get back to sleep now, than over Ruth's rude awakening.

Ruth gave an unabashed giggle, smiling impishly at her big sister.

Judith smiled in reply, and without warning, lunged at her sister, her hands going to her side in a mere moment. Ruth gave a little shriek, which soon turned into laughter as Judith tickled the young girl.

"St-stop, J-Judy!" Ruth managed to squeal out, inbetween her incessant giggles. Judith smiled wider and bent down, kissing her sister on the forehead.

"Oh, if you insist." Judith teased, removing her wriggling from from her sister's sides. "Now, mind telling me why you woke me up?"

Ruth grinned even brighter at her. "Guess what? Margaret's here! She says you're both going to the mall today. Can I come with you?"

Judith blinked, and glanced at the cloak. A light blush spread across her face. "Al-already?! Crap, I forgot to set my alarm..."

Judith sprung out of bed, mentally cursing herself as she hurriedly started to change out of her pajamas. Crap! They were supposed to go out on patrol this morning, and she forgot all about it! Judith couldn't believe her luck. Ooh, she just hoped Margie wouldn't be mad at her for being so late...

"Can I come? Can I? Pleeeeease?" Ruth begged, shooting her sister a pleading gesture as Judith changed.

"Sorry Ruth, not today." Judith replied, more than used to denying such a request.

Truly, she loved her sister, but it really did annoy her how Ruth always tried to insert herself into the things she did with Margaret. Judith loved spending time with little Ruth, and she loved spending time with Margie...but, at the same time, she wasn't entirely too fond of the idea of spending time with her sister and best friend at the same time. Ruth was still a kid, after all, and she couldn't take the risk of Ruth discovering she was a Puella Magi...

"Come on! Please?" Ruth begged again, her face forming into what could be described as the 'puppy dog' look.

Judith studiously avoided looking directly at Ruth, least she succumb to her sister's desire. "I'm sorry Ruth, but Margie and I have...uh, special plans for today. We can't really have you tag along."

Judith finished changing out of her pajamas, and into more suitable wear for the day. Now, all she had to do was go to the bathroom to fix herself up! She just hoped that Margie wouldn't mind waiting on her a bit longer...ugh, she should have remembered to set that darn alarm! That way she wouldn't be so unprepared!

"Okay..." Ruth pouted, slumping on the bed.

Judith turned to her sister, and strode over to her. She gave Ruth a hug, and a kiss on the cheek. "I know you like hanging out with me and Margie, Ruth. But like I said, me and Margie have plans of our own today. We can hang out together another time. Okay?"

Ruth gave a slow nod, and Judith smiled. She kissed her sister one last time before hastily exiting her room, in a rush to get herself ready for the day.

Almost half an hour later she finally fixed herself up, and rushed down the stairs, skidding into the dining room where Margaret so patiently waited.

"I'm so sorry!" Judith huffed, her cheeks tinged pink. "I-I forgot that we were, uh, d-doing stuff today, and didn't set my alarm! I'm sorry, Margaret!"

Margaret wasn't entirely sure if she actually needed to sleep anymore, being what was essentially a magically animated corpse with the majority of its biological functions still operable, but she did know that it helped. Perhaps it was psychosomatic or perhaps it had something to do with using up less energy, but for, whatever reason, it helped. Unfortunately, she herself had not succeeded in obtaining any last night.

Instead, Margaret had spent the night mostly in pursuit of the little white creature that now rested on her shoulder. Yuubey had apparently decided that while she slept was the opportune time to go out and find additional girls to make contracts with.

Almost as if it knew what she was thinking about, the Incubator looked up at Margaret in a way that she assumed to be curiously. She didn't respond though. She felt no need to, as, if he was indeed confused about the current subject of her thoughts, there was no point in explaining again.

When Margaret approached the Cohen household at the appointed time, and knocked twice on the front door, she was surprised to find that it was not Judith, but her sister Ruth who opened the door. All the same, the surprise did not register on the Magical Girl's face, she had gotten quite good at avoiding that, and she spoke in her usual lack of tone.

"Hello Ruth. Is your sister here? We're supposed to be going to the mall today." This was of course completely false. Margaret had little interest in shopping outings, even when there were not more important things to be done. The truth of the matter was that Margaret had come to pick her partner up for Witch hunting. Of course, she couldn't tell Ruth that.

In answer, the girl nodded and dashed back into the house, leaving the door ajar, presumably as an invitation to come in. After watching Judith's sister round a corner and disappear from view, Margaret and the being on her shoulder shared a look. Margaret's being a one of warning, and Yuubey's one of innocent incomprehension, much like a child asking "What did I do?" It received only a glare in reply.

When Judith finally arrived downstairs, Margaret was waiting patiently in the dinning room, arms crossed behind her back, non-expression on her face, and an Incubator on her shoulder. She nodded to acknowledge her friend entering the room, then listened as Judith stumbled over her words.

"That's alright." the veteran Magi responded simply. "Shall we be off then?"

"Um, yeah, sure." Judith replied, still blushing as she straightened herself and smoothed out her sundress. "I'm ready to go when you are, Margaret!"

Her eyes strayed briefly to the Incubator Yuubey, and she decided it was only polite to give the little alien creature a nod. Since her sister was still in the room, she couldn't openly acknowledge the creature, but at least she could share a brief mental greeting. It was the least she could do, after all, for the being that had made her life happy again.

"Good morning, Yuubey!" Judith thought cheerily, knowing the Incubator would easily be able to pick up on her thoughts.

"Good morning, Judith!" Yuubey exclaimed cheerfully, before leaping from Margaret's shoulder, onto Judith's, where he then proceeded to curl himself up against her neck. Margaret's face twitched, ever so slightly.

With another nod in reply to her partner's words, the elder of the two made her way to the door, and, with a brief farewell to the girl they were leaving behind, exited.

After she was certain that they had walked far enough away from the house, Margaret turned her ring back into the form it naturally took as her Soul Gem. The small gemstone maintained a steady dark blue glow as it rested in her palm, its lack of reaction to its environment indicating a lack of Witches in the immediate vicinity.

Turning back to Judith, she extended her unoccupied hand. "May I see yours for a moment?" It wasn't as though she was expecting a different reaction from her partner's Gem. What she actually wanted it for was to check for any signs of corruption. In theory, she could just ask, but she could be more sure this way, as Judith might fib to avoid worrying her, not knowing the consequences that could come from that.

Margaret trusted her partner, but omitting certain details from her meant making sure that Judith didn't fall into any pitfalls that Margaret herself was helping conceal.

"Huh? Oh, uh, sure." Judith blushed slightly, and held out her palm, her transformed Soul Gem appearing on top a moment later, it's green glow untainted, aside from a very minor manifestation of dim, black corruption.

Judith handed her partner the Soul Gem, and briefly worried if Margaret would ask how the very minor corruption had gotten there, since her Soul Gem had been perfectly clear yesterday. She really hoped Margaret wouldn't ask that; it would be so embarrassing to admit she had used her invisibility powers to cheat on her science test yesterday!

"Oh, uh, by the way, Margaret," Judith started, half-hoping to divert her attention from the Soul Gem. "I finally found a nickname for you! Margie! Does that sound good to you, Margie?"

Judith smiled and giggled slightly, already liking how the name rolled off her tongue. It had been so hard coming up with a nickname for Margaret, considering her name made it so hard to shorten it into something cute. But, she'd managed it at last! She just hoped that her friend would like it.

For a moment, Margaret was extremely concerned by the slight taint that Judith's Soul Gem had, but a quick glance up allowed her to temporarily set aside her concerns about her friend falling into despair. Judith seemed happy enough, if somewhat embarrassed for some reason or another. As such, Margaret would just assume for the moment that the corruption had come from use of magic.

Though she did briefly consider asking what Judith had used the magic for, the green-haired girl spoke first.

"Hm? A nickname? Alright." She didn't really see why her name would have to be shortened, already being only two syllables as it was, but she didn't mind, and even if she did, that smile and giggle were not things that she could say no to under most circumstances. It probably wouldn't increase their combat effectiveness that much though.

"I think she wants to use it to indicate affection, rather than as a way of saving time." This was Yuubey, deciding to privately communicate to Margaret his thoughts on the situation. This was the emotionless alien, advising her on human customs and kinship. Not for the first time, the veteran Puella Magi wondered just how far she had removed herself from the people she tried to protect, and felt mildly sick, her Soul Gem succumbing partially to the corruption these thoughts created. She almost, almost, allowed this to register in her expression.

But of course, she couldn't allow that, now could she?

Instead, Margaret took a breath, regained her composure, and promised herself that she would eviscerate Yuubey later, maybe even twice, if she was feeling particularly vindictive. Then, pressing Judith's Soul Gem back into its owner's palm, making extra sure not to let go until she was certain that Judith had a grip on it, she spoke again. "It's a nice nickname. Thank you."

"You're welcome!" Judith beamed, an eager smile forming across her face. It made her feel warm inside, to hear that Margaret liked the nickname. She was always eager to make her friend happy, since Margie always appeared so...closed off and unhappy. It made her wonder why she was always like that....

She took her Soul Gem back from Judith, and transformed it back into a ring.

"So," Judith began, pondering their options. Where oh where should they start their search?

"Where do you want to start patrolling, Margie? Near the Mega-Mall, maybe?" she inquired, racking her brain for viable patrol areas. Malls, hospitals, funeral homes, rundown places and areas, and mental facilities always seemed like good places to start up their search, given the Witches' attraction to misery.

Margaret wasn't entirely sure what a mall, mega or otherwise, had to do with misery and despair, but it was relatively close and it couldn't hurt to check, particularly considering they were almost out of Grief Seeds. Plus it was a highly trafficked area, so any Familiars that wandered in there would most likely be Witches by now, and any Witches should be taken care of before they could kill anyone passing through.

So Margaret offered the slightest of shrugs, saying "I don't see why not." She then turned on her heel and, making sure Judith was following, made her way in the direction of the mall with measured steps.

About halfway there, Margaret decided that she really didn't need to be walking around with a half darkened Soul Gem, especially if they were going to be fighting a Witch. After all, an important part of protecting others was making sure that she was still around to do so. As such, she produced from her sleeve the last Grief Seed they had on hand, specifically that of the Witch, Adelheid.

How did she know its name? Well, that was quite simple; she'd figured out how to read the runes that appeared in Witches' barriers. It actually wasn't that difficult once she realized that they could be translated directly into German. As for why she spent enough time looking at and thinking about the runes to figure this out... well, she had a lot of free time before she met Judith.

Purifying her Soul Gem, Margaret looked at the two objects in her hands, before tossing the Grief Seed over her shoulder to Judith. "It still has more than enough to cleanse that minor corruption. You can hang on to it after you're done."

After pausing for a moment to consider where they would get their next Grief Seed if the mall didn't turn up anything, Margaret called again over her shoulder, this time addressing the being resting on her partner. "I don't suppose you noticed any Witches while you were skulking about last night?" The thing tilted its head in a way that she assumed one would describe as "cute", that is if one didn't know what it really was, and answered in its falsely cheerful voice. "I wasn't really looking for Witches, and I didn't get to spend as much time out as I wanted."

Judith caught the Grief Seed with a start, momentarily caught off guard. She nodded over at Margaret, and brought out her Soul Gem. She put the Gem against the Seed, and the minor corruption present in it transferred over to the Grief Seed. Once that was done, she pocketed the object away, and restored her Soul Gem back into ring form.

She continued to walk with Margaret to the mall, and not for the first time, she was rather glad that being a Puella Magi enhanced her body. By now her feet would be aching from so much walking, but she didn't feel a thing! In fact, she rarely tired at all, these days; something she was especially thankful for in Gym class.

Just another bonus for being a Magical Girl, Judith mused.

They continued their trek for some time, relatively silence keeping them company. And then...

"Hey, Margie! Do you wanna have a sleepover tonight?" Judith suddenly inquired, a cheerful, bright smile upon her face. It had been a little while since they had had the chance to have a sleepover together. It would certainly be nice to have one again! Maybe she could manage to convince her friend to let her braid her hair, too! Ooh, that would be fun!

Margaret was slightly relieved that Judith hadn't chosen to ask what Yuubey had meant by that, seeing as she didn't really have an answer she would be happy to give away.

As they walked on, the main sound being the taps of their footsteps, Margaret would periodically glance back over her shoulder to see that Judith was still alright, and that the third member of their group hadn't gone anywhere. He still needed to stick around to collect the energy from the used up Grief Seed, at least as far as she knew, and it wasn't like he would actually get anywhere even if he tried to make a break for it, but she still felt the need to check.

Just when they had almost reached the mall, Judith spoke up. "Hey, Margie! Do you wanna have a sleepover tonight?" Margaret didn't even have to consider the answer for a moment. "Alright. Shall we have it at my house or yours?" Margaret knew for a fact that there wasn't anything else in the way of this plan, since, aside from keeping an eye on Judith, any other responsibilities she had, namely Yuubey and homework, could taken care of wherever she was.

In addition, it actually might make her feel better. This thought actually managed to succeed in putting a tiny smile on Margaret's usually implacable expression.

In her hand, her Soul Gem flashed, indicating the presence of a Witch's labyrinth. Turning to Judith and showing her this, the elder Puella Magi asked "Ready?"

"Your house, of course!" Judith enthused, grinning widely. "Your house is always best for sleepovers."

Judith then saw her friend's Soul Gem flash, and listened to her query. Judith gave a determined nod, and declared, "I'm ready as ever, Margie!"

With that said, she raced off with her friend, as they started running to the direction of the Witch's Labyrinth. With their Puella Magi enhanced bodies, it didn't take them long to reach their destination.

In the middle of the street, she and Margie crossed through the Witch's Barrier, startling a few passerbys who happened to look at them as they disappeared. As soon as they entered the Labyrinth, Judith grinned and took out her Soul Gem, proceeding to transform.

A flash of brilliant, jade-green light enveloped Judith, her transformation begun. When the light cleared, Judith's regular clothes were gone; instead, they were replaced by a long, billowing, purple hooded cloak that trailed to her feet. And in her hands, she gripped a single, wicked and sharp looking scythe, with a blade that extended quite a few feet.

"Let's go!" Judith declared brightly, once Margaret herself transformed. She spared a single glance at Margie's rather...form-fitting outfit, but didn't dwell on it for too long. They had a Witch to fight, after all!

As they started to traverse the Labyrinth, Judith found herself morbidly impressed with their surroundings; an old, dilapidated town stuck in winter greeted her every gaze, and a big Christmas tree at the town's center caught her gaze especially. Hm, was the Witch housed in that tree, perhaps?

Her musings were cut off when she heard a scream in the near distance. Judith halted for a moment, eyes wide. She immediately changed course and rushed over to the direction of the scream, and just in time, too. The Witch's Familiars, apparently life-sized gingerbread men, were encircling a pair of girls her own age.

Judith swooped down in an instant, twirling her scythe. She bisected a segment of the gingerbread men, watching as their forms crumbled into the thick snow.

Before the Familiars could react, she leaped through the hole she had carved through their encirclement, and jumped over the stunned civilians, landing behind them. She swiped her her scythe again, cutting through the remaining evil gingerbread men.

Once all the nearby Familiars lay crumbled on the ground, Judith turned to the now fortunate girls, beaming at them as she grinned with victory.

"Hi! I'm Judith. I'll be your rescuer today." she declared sweetly, as she planted her scythe upon the snow. She paused in thought a second later, leaning against her scythe.

"Oh, drat!" Judith fretted with a frown, looking over to her fellow Puella Magi as she joined them. "I just totally wasted my one opportunity to say, 'Come with me if you want to live'! Aww. I'll never get another chance to use that now, Margie..."

Chiyo had no answers for Aolani's questions, and was too terrified to speak even if she did. Instead, she could only cling wordlessly to her friend's side, as the gingerbread men grew steadily closer.

Just then, when there seemed no hope of escape, a figure appeared, seemingly from nowhere, garbed in a flowing cloak of deep purple, and armed with a lethal-looking scythe, wreaking havoc in the monstrous choir's ranks. Each creature releasing a low moan of pain, and spraying a thick dark-red frosting from its wounds as it was felled.

The animated pastry massacre complete, the girl then turned to Aolani and Chiyo, planing her scythe in the ground, and cheerily introducing herself. "Hi! I'm Judith. I'll be your rescuer today."

Chiyo could only think of one description for this person, who had just saved their lives by wielding an improbably large and deadly farming tool against a crowd of monsters. "A magical girl..." Chiyo's voice was one of hushed awe as she spoke this surprisingly accurate conclusion.

They were then joined by what seemed to be the remainder of the magical girl's group, a small, catlike creature with a cute smile and fluffy tail, and a girl in a faintly glowing suit of armor, who did not seem at all pleased with the situation.


Margaret's own transformation was significantly less bright, in fitting with her personality she supposed. She simply placed her Soul Gem in its place just above her collarbone, and her clothing was instantly replaced by a dark grey jumpsuit, that clung to her skin, allowing maximum freedom of movement. Then, starting at her Soul Gem, armor began to unfold itself over Margaret's body with the clicks and scrapes that would accompany it if the suit were truly mechanical. Finally, a blue glow surrounded her, ready to guard the Magical Girl from harm.

For just a moment afterward, Margaret thought she felt someone's eyes on her. A glance over at Judith however, revealed her to already be making her way forward, into the heart of the labyrinth.

While observing the details of the barrier, Margaret covered her mouth and nose with a hand. While the most prevalent scent in the air was of warm, freshly baked cookies, sugar if she was not mistaken, it didn't completely cover up the smell of rotting pine, and some sickly sweet scent that the veteran Puella Magi thought better of trying to place.

The scream gave Margaret even more pause than it had her partner. It wasn't the fact that people's lives were in danger, though that isn't to say she didn't care. What made Margaret stop dead in her tracks was the person making the noise, a girl of about their age.

A frantic glance about at first revealed Yuubey to be nowhere in sight. As the gingerbread men fell out of the way however, she could see it exactly where she had feared, casually strolling past Judith, up to the two girls.

In a flash, Margaret was past the already fading corpses of the Familiars, picking Yuubey up by the scruff of his neck, and turning to Judith. "Get them out of here safely. I'll deal with the Witch, and meet you in the food court."

And with that, she was dashing away at top speed, Incubator firmly clutched in her left hand, while she summoned a knife into the other.


The Incubator said nothing as the girl that had spent nearly every waking moment of her life for the past six months trying desperately to prevent him from doing his job yanked him away. Up until now, he'd tolerated this, mostly due to the amount of energy he would gather when she and Judith finally did succumb to despair, and the fact that they kept the Witch population under control, which could normally prove problematic on an island such as this one.

Now, however, things were different. The girls he'd been trying to contract with before now were of no better than average in potential, in fact the biggest advantage to this would be how much closer it might push these two to the edge, rather than the emotional energy of the girls themselves. What he'd just seen though, could not be ignored in quite the same fashion. Besides, Margaret was beginning to get dangerously close to costing him more energy than she would produce, and that was something that would not be allowed to transpire.

Yuuby prepared himself to disappear the moment she was distracted by the Witch.

Judith & Aolani

"Oh! Okay." Judith gave a startled blink, but accepted Margaret's order readily. The Witch still had to be fought, of course, but they also needed to get these girls to safety.

"What...what the hell is going on here?!" Aolani demanded a second later, her head still reeling by the sudden turn of events. She was more than thankful for their sudden rescue, of course, but still....what in the actual hell was going on here?! Life-sized, demonic gingerbread men, girls their own age dressed up in odd costumes carrying lethal weapons...and that cat-like creature that the armored girl carried away, with its red, beady little eyes...

What, was she in some sort of....anime, now, or in one of Chiyo's dating sims?! What the hell had happened to reality? Real life wasn't like this! Or at least, wasn't supposed to be like this! All of this was so....impossible! There was no way this could actually be happening! Someone must have drugged her or something, and she was simply having a psychedelic episode right now.


She hoped so, at least. Because the possibility that this was all frightened Aolani. It turned her entire world view upside down, to say the least...

"I know the two of you must have a lot of questions," Judith soothed, speaking to the frightened civilians in a calming tone. Thankfully, she had some experience doing this; this wasn't the first time they had rescued someone from a Witch's Labyrinth. Though this was the first time they had rescued someone their own age...

"However, your questions are going to have to wait. I need to get the two of you out of here ASAP! A Witch's Labyrinth isn't a safe place for us to just amble around and talk." she continued, as she took up her scythe. "Now, follow me! And don't stray, no matter what happens! Okay?"

Aolani simply gaped at the green-haired girl for a few seconds, before snapping her mouth shut. She gave a weary nod. At this point, she was more than glad to get out of this...whatever this was. And the sooner, the better!

The blonde gripped Chiyo's hand tightly, more for her own sake than to comfort Chiyo, and gestured for the scythe-wielding teenager to lead the way.

Judith gave them a smile, and a small giggle escaped her lips. She dissolved her scythe, walked over to them, and spread out her arms.

"Actually, I think this would go a lot faster if I just carried you." the Puella Magi opined, issuing another giggle at the thought.

Aolani raised a skeptical eyebrow. "Carry us? At the same time? I doubt you're that--!"

Before the half-Native Hawaiian could protest any further, Judith proceeded to wrap them both in a strong bear hug, effectively taking them both into her arms.

"I'd carry you both bridal style," Judith mused, a small smile on her face. "But, I'm not sure how that'd work out with carrying two people at the same time. So...this seems like the most effective method to me. Sorry for the inconvenience!"

Judith then dug her heels into the snow, gripping the girls tightly...and leaped into the air, soaring high into sky of the Labyrinth.

Aolani, meanwhile, chose that opportunity to scream, shutting her eyes fiercely as she desperately tried to ignore the fact that they were so damn high in the air, and the only thing stopping her from having a bad fall was a simple bear hug, and oh god oh god oh god ohgodohgodohgodohgodohgodohgod she was going to crash so hard--!

Judith, for her part, politely ignored the blonde's girlish screams. She couldn't blame her, either; this was rather scary for a civilian like them. Heck, she herself would probably be screaming her lungs off, had their positions been reversed!

Judith continued her leaping, bouncing off of the roofs of the houses in the Labyrinth, as she carried off the girls to safety.

With the immediate threat to their lives dealt with, Chiyo was actually feeling much calmer. Heck, she was even starting to feel a bit elated. This was actual physical proof that magic was real, that there were heroes that fought behind the scenes in the name of justice, and that maybe the things she was interested in really weren't as ridiculous as she'd been lead to believe.

Unable to contain her growing glee, Chiyo looked over at Aolani, only for her face to fall as it became clear that her friend was not taking this nearly as well as she was. This became especially apparent a moment later, when Aolani reiterated her previous question. Thankfully, there was someone here who might be able to answer.

"I know the two of you must have a lot of questions,"

Chiyo's eyes lit up with curiosity and delight, and she opened her mouth to loose a stream of various inquiries about the laws this universe abided by, but was interrupted by the magical girl finishing her sentence.

"However, your questions are going to have to wait. I need to get the two of you out of here ASAP! A Witch's Labyrinth isn't a safe place for us to just amble around and talk. Now, follow me! And don't stray, no matter what happens! Okay?"

While this was a bit disappointing, it also served to interest her even further. Witches? Labyrinths? Chiyo assumed that the strange place they currently found themselves in could be referred to as a labyrinth, so did that make the gingerbread men witches? No, she had used the singular, implying that this place only belonged to one being. Would that make the cookie monsters its minions? If so, it had to be pretty powerful. And to think, the other girl had decided to handle it alone. Chiyo decided that these girls must be incredibly strong.

Speaking of which, Chiyo just remembered that Judith, as she had introduced herself, had just asked a question, and Chiyo had been temporarily lost in her musings. "Ah, sorry. Yes, ma'am. Thank you, ma'am." Even if the circumstances were a bit odd, and she had just saved their lives, Chiyo still had trouble talking to people she didn't know, especially if she had just done something that could possibly be taken as rude.

At her side, Chiyo felt Aolani squeeze her her hand. Thinking that this was an offer of comfort on her friend's part, she turned to give the blonde a look of appreciation, but was struck by the expression Aolani wore. Clearly, she was not taking this well at all. It seemed that, in this situation, it was she who needed comfort. In response to this, Chiyo squeezed her hand back, and offered a reassuring smile, while trying to ignore the small part of her that was ecstatic that she could offer help to Aolani.

This train of thought was completely derailed when Judith suggested, or rather, stated her intention, that she carry them. Aolan, of course, jumped immediately to the possible logistical problem. Chiyo however, had a different issue with this completely.

That was when the girl in the purple robe engulfed them both in a bear hug, lifting them off the ground, and pressing the three of them together. Now, Chiyo normally blushed when coming into contact with her best friend. Being pushed up against her and another girl... The comment about bridal style carrying didn't help either.

Seeing as heights were one of the few things that Chiyo actually wasn't afraid of, a few of the others being horror films and the dentist, she actually didn't have nearly as much of a problem with that aspect of their current position as she did the fact that someone she didn't know was still touching her.

Aolani however, seemed to be in quite a state, Unfortunately, given the fact that she was basically pinned to Judith, there wasn't much that the purplette could do about it, and she doubted Aolani would be able to hear anything she tried to say over the sound of her own screams.

Judith & Aolani

Judith guided them swiftly out of the Witch's Labyrinth, reaching through the barrier and back into the normal world, landing them back into a mostly deserted alleyway.

Judith let go of them both, and backed away slightly, looking at them, especially Aolani, with concern.

"Are you both alright?" Judith inquired, switching her gaze back and forth between the two of them.

Aolani, now quite pale, managed to give a brief nod. She steadied herself against a wall, and continued to squeeze Chiyo's hand. In a more calmer situation, it'd strike her as odd that she was the one seeking comfort, for once.

"Y-Yeah, I'll be....j-just, just give me a minute." she wheezed out, her throat quite sore from all the screaming. She gave a grunt and rubbed at her throat, feeling a little embarrassed now by her earlier hysterics.

"S-Sorry about that. I just....don't like heights. At all." the blonde added, as she slowly regained her breath. Already, some color was returning to her face.

God, this was unreal. Just what the hell was going on here?

They spent another minute in the alley, taking a little time to recover and process all that had happened. Then, Judith dissolved her transformation, reverting her Soul Gem back to ring form, and appearing back in her dress.

"Margie said we should go to the food court at the mall, so let's go ahead and do that. It shouldn't take her long to join us there." she proclaimed. Aolani gave a slight shrug in response, unsure of what to say at that moment.

With the decision made, the three of them left the alleyway and walked to the mall proper, which thankfully was only a block away from where they had appeared. The odd trio made their way into the mall, and Judith guided them over to the food court on the third floor. She chose an table for them near the back end of the court, far away from anyone else, and took a seat.

"So. You two must have a lot of questions about what just happened. I don't know if I can answer everything, but I'd be willing to try." Judith sweetly stated, a smile on her face.

Chiyo gave a sigh of relief at being let go. It wasn't that she had anything against Judith, the girl saved both her life and that of her best friend, so it was hardly as though she could have made a better first impression. It was just that Chiyo was not at all comfortable with physical contact with people who she didn't know well.

"Are you both alright?" Judith had asked. Chiyo's first thought was to turn to Aolani, who gave a brief nod, leaning back against the wall, while continuing to hold onto the purplette's hand for reassurance. Chiyo beamed at this, elated be able to help out in some small way, even if it didn't do much, and Aolani probably would have been fine without it.

For another minute or so, the three remained in the alleyway. Chiyo spent this time trying to do what she could think of to make Aolani feel better, which mostly consisted of not letting go of her hand until she did, and remaining as close by as she thought Aolani would like. The older girl's personal space was a bit difficult to judge. Then again, Chiyo found that difficulty in almost everyone, so perhaps it was more likely that the problem was her's. Then, she watched curiously as Judith caused the robe to dissolve, revealing normal clothing beneath, and transformed her gem into a ring. Chiyo considered asking about this, but decided to wait to speak until she was spoken to.

The three made their way to the food court, since Aolani didn't have any objections, and Chiyo was hardly going to rock the boat by suggesting that this was actually something that would probably be better spoken about in a less public area.

When they sat down at the back of the room, Judith finally said what Chiyo had been waiting for. "So. You two must have a lot of questions about what just happened. I don't know if I can answer everything, but I'd be willing to try."

With a glance over at Aolani, almost as though she were asking permission to start asking questions, the smallish girl let fly a torrent of inquiries. "Are you magical girls? Do you fight for love and justice? Who was that other girl who ran off to 'take care of the Witch'? Are there more of you? What is a 'Witch'? Were the gingerbread men its minions? How did you get your powers? Where do you weapons and costume go when you aren't carrying them? Are they stored in that ring you made? Was that white cat-thing your mascot? Why did the other girl take it with her?"

Chiyo realized that she was asking questions far too quickly for Judith to answer, and with a great deal more intense enthusiasm than she ever displayed, turning red with embarrassment, and immediately became quiet. Well, more quiet. She actually hadn't been very loud at all by normal standards. "Sorry, ma'am. I didn't mean to be so excitable."

Judith & Aolani

Judith gazed at Chiyo with increasing surprise, caught off guard by her barrage of questions. Well, she was sure...enthusiastic, about all this. And rather accepting of it all, too. Not that that was a bad thing, though; at least she was taking this better than her friend there.

Aolani, meanwhile, shifted in her chair, her mental process still up in arms over all that had happened. But, she was starting to recover, thankfully, and now she was able to start thinking rationally about this whole situation. Well, as rationally as anyone could think over what they had just experienced not fifteen minutes ago.

"Sorry, ma'am. I didn't mean to be so excitable." Chiyo stated after a moment of silence.

"It's fine, don't worry about it." Judith immediately assured, smiling brightly at the purplette. "And you don't have to call me ma'am. Just plain Judith would be fine with me..."

The green-haired girl paused, blinking as she considered something. "Oh, I'm sorry....I don't think I caught either of your names."

"Aolani Stevens." the blonde gestured to herself, and then over to her friend. "Chiyo Wakahisa."

"Pleased to meet you both!" the junior Puella Magi beamed, smiling once more. "And as I said earlier, I'm Judith. Judith Cohen."

Judith straightened herself in her seat, and prepared to address Chiyo's questions, before she paused again. She glanced over at Aolani, and blinked, recalling the half-Native Hawaiian's name, from somewhere else...

"Aolani....hey, aren't you in our school's track team?" Judith inquired, gazing curiously at the older girl.

Aolani raised her brow in surprise, before giving Judith another look. Come to think of it, she did look...vaguely familiar.

"Uh, yeah, I'm that Aolani. We...go to the same school? That' interesting coincidence." the blonde replied evenly, eyeing the green-haired girl.

Maybe too much of a coincidence? Well, then again, it wasn't like she had ever interacted with Judith before. Hell, she hadn't know she even existed before today. So maybe it was just a simple, innocent coincidence.

"It sure is! We've never rescued anyone from our own school before," Judith replied thoughtfully, thinking the matter over.

Well, Margie was gonna be surprised by this, no doubt! She wondered if this would be a good thing, though. The few times they rescued civilians from a Labyrinth, they usually never saw them again. But that wouldn't be the case here, it seemed.

"Oh! Sorry, I still need to answer your questions, don't I?" Judith stated, turning her attention back to Chiyo. "Well...let's see. Where to start...

"The technical term for what me and Margie are is 'Puella Magi'....which basically translates to 'Magical Girl' in regular English, so yeah, we're Magical Girls." Judith allowed, nodding her head.

"Uh...I guess we fight for justice, but I don't know about love. For the most part, we just fight Witches so that they don't hurt anybody. Or, and to get their Grief Seeds, too. The other girl was my very best friend, Margaret Faust! I just call her Margie for short, though. Don't call her Marge, though. She hates that. Uh, I think there's more of us. Yuubey and Margaret say there are, but I've only ever met one other Puella Magi, and that's Margie. A Witch is...well....uh, it's kinda hard to explain. I might wanna let Margie explain that. And yes, the gingerbread men were its minions; they're a Witch's Familiars.

"I got my powers by making a Wish with Yuubey; Yuubey himself could explain that whole process best, I think. Uh, my costume and weapon just sorta disappear when I don't need them. And I suppose you could call Yuubey our mascot; oh, the, uh, white cat-thing is named Yuubey, by the way. Sorry for not mentioning that earlier! And...I don't know. You'd have to ask Margie that."

Judith finished her little speech, and nodded politely at Chiyo. "I hope that helps answer your questions. Though I'm really not the best at answering all this. Really, asking Yuubey or Margie would be best. They have a lot more experience with all of this then I do. I've just been a Puella Magi for six months."

Aolani followed the little answer session as best as she could, though she wasn't entirely sure what to make out of all of it. Hell, she still had a hard time accepting that this was at all real. She kept expecting to wake up in Chiyo's bed, finding out that this whole thing was just some sort of bizarre dream...

Unfortunately, dreams didn't quite work that way, and Aolani knew she was very much awake. And that fact actually kinda scared her. To think, this might actually be real...God. felt like the world as she knew it was breaking apart at the seams...

Aolani suppressed the urge to groan, and rubbed at her forehead, feeling a minor headache coming on. Underneath the table, she slipped her hand over to Chiyo's side, and slipped her hand into Chiyo's, squeezing it slightly. It didn't help her much, but just the simple feeling of her friend's palm against her own did help to calm her slightly.

Chiyo & Yuubey

As usual. Chiyo let Aolani do the talking when the subject of introductions was brought up. Her uncharacteristic talkativeness really only applied to the subject that had caused it. In all other regards, she was as shy as she normally was.

Chiyo listened carefully as the Magical Girl, or Puella Magi, as she now knew her to be, answered her questions. As she listened, she felt Aolani take her hand underneath the table, causing the gamer to smile once more. Magic was real, and Aolani was relying on her, at least somewhat. From that perspective, this was probably one of the best days of Chiyo's life.

The explanation raised almost as many questions as it answered, though Chiyo supposed that was part of the nature of these things. She considered asking about the things that Judith had just brought up, but the girl had already said that she was not the best person to explain.

Just as she was about to ask Aolani if she had any questions, a new voice was heard.

"If you'd like my help explaining anything, I'd be glad to offer my assistance."

Suddenly, sitting as though he had been there the whole time, the creature from earlier was on the edge of the table, in front of the chair next to Judith's. Debatably, he may have been, since Chiyo never actually saw him move, she was just fairly certain that she would have noticed him earlier. Then again, she wasn't exactly the most observant person, at least in her own opinion.

Having extended his offer of help to Judith, Yuubey turned his head in Aolani's and Chiyo's direction, and, without opening his mouth, began to speak. "Judith already told you my name, but we've yet to be formally introduced. I'm Yuubey. It's good to meet you, Aolani Stevens, Chiyo Wakahisa."

There was a pause, in which, Yuubey turned first to each of them, before finally glancing at the exit. Hm, perhaps the Witch was causing Margaret a bit more trouble than he'd thought it would. Just as well, as it would give him a bit more time to talk to these two without her interference.

"If you have the time, there's something I'd like to ask of you two. I want you to make a contract with me, and become Magical Girls!"

As it uttered the last part, the being tilted its head and closed its eyes, its voice going up slightly in pitch, making its unwavering smile seem all the more cheerful.


Margaret dashed through the streets, Grief Seed still in hand. Thankfully she bothered to dismiss her Magical Girl attire, else she'd be receiving even more curious glances than she already was.

As she ran, the veteran Puella Magi quickly considered the situation. The Witch's barrier itself was just barely out of the way, and wherever they came out likely would be as well. She was fairly certain that she had been holding onto the Incubator long enough for them to get out and start making their way to the food court, at that point, Judith would follow her instructions well enough to take them there even if Yuubey attempted to interfere. Also, since he claimed never to deceive, and Margaret had never seen him do so directly, she probably didn't have to worry about him saying that she had sent him with different instructions.

As such, they would most likely be at the food court, where it was too public for them to actually make a contract. Even so that didn't really guarantee anything.

Briefly, Margaret considered calling out to her green-haired partner, not to let the girls contract until she arrived. She decided against in however, as, while she would likely do so without complaint, she would expect an explanation at some point. Combine that with the fact that there was little immediate danger of them contracting, and the risk was not worth the gain.

With this in mind, she stopped outside of the mall's front door, taking a breath and composing herself. There would be no sense in Margaret rushing in when time was no longer of the essence. Yuubey could teleport, or at least move in such a fashion as to emulate teleportation, so he would already be there, saying what he wanted to say. What was important now was that she have her wits about her, so that she could counter his plotting verbally rather than physically, and she would need to remain calm to effectively do so.

So, clearing what little emotion had made its way onto her expression, Margaret pocketed the Grief Seed, and stepped into the mall.

Judith & Aolani

Aolani jumped slightly at the sudden appearance of the...creature known as Yuubey; she was even more startled when it spoke without even opening its mouth.

What the hell? How was it doing that? It...didn't really make any sense! How could it talk without using its mouth? Unless...maybe it was some sort of...projected telepathy, perhaps? That...could be it. It certainly seemed the most plausible explanation, all things considered.

...Good God, she was starting to buy into all this, wasn't she? Ugh. Then was hard to debate the reality of their situation. However...disbelieving it was, Aolani, reluctantly so, knew that this was all real, somehow. After all, she doubted a hallucinogenic drug would be this vivid. Besides, from all accounts, Chiyo was seeing the exact same thing as she was. And the blonde was fairly sure that, if she and Chiyo had been drugged, they wouldn't be sharing the same hallucinations.

Still....she might want to check later, just to be sure. It would be...embarrassing, to ask Chiyo for a urine sample, but if it helped her determine that this whole mess was actually real, well, it'd be worth any embarrassment.

"Oh! You want to Contract them, Yuubey?" Judith questioned, surprised. Well, that was unexpected! But...a good surprise, all the same! Maybe she and Margie would have some more friends/allies in their fight against the Witches. That would be great, to say the least!

"Contract? Become Magical Girls?" Aolani inquired, steadily overcoming her disbelief over the situation. A part of her did feel a little...silly, talking to this cat-like creature, but she managed to ignore that. "What does that all mean?"

Yuubey nodded in reply to Judith's question, before turning to answer Aolani's.

"Witches are dangerous creatures born from despair, that wander the Earth cursing whoever they can. Normal people can't see them, unless they wander into the barriers they hide within, like you two did. This means that Witches, if left unchecked, will go around killing people, with no one able to stop them."

The small creature paused for effect, looking in particular at Chiyo for a moment, before facing Aolani, who had been the one to actually ask the question, once more.

"There are however, a few girls who have the power to do something about it: the Magical Girls. They have the abilities to track down and defeat Witches. That's where I come in. I seek out girls like you, with the potential to become Magical Girls, and offer them a contract. In exchange for agreeing to becoming a Puella Magi, and fighting Witches, I can grant you any one wish."

The Incubator was hoping, well, as far as he could hope anyway, that this last part would catch the pair's attention. The wish part tended to peak humans' interest. The fact that he had implied that they'd be saving the lives of people who would otherwise be killed probably wouldn't hurt either.

Chiyo & Margaret

If Chiyo had previously been glowing with enthusiasm, she was now positively blinding with it. She, of all people, could fight monsters and save lives? Plus, she would get magical powers, the uses of which were clearly not limited solely to fighting, and she would get a wish on top of all that? Chiyo wasn't one who liked to be rushed, or do things hastily, nor did she have a wish in mind at the moment, but just the idea of being useful made the whole deal quite appealing in her eyes. And, if she was honest free magical powers sounded pretty cool too.

She looked to Aolani, in an attempt to gauge her reaction, when suddenly, the girl who Judith had been with, Margaret, she had said, walked in. She still wore that same non-expression, though Chiyo, trained in the art of reading girls by her years of playing games that depended on your ability to do so, did manage to pick up a slight feeling that something was off. More than that though, the dark-haired Magical Girl's serious demeanor was immensely intimidating to Chiyo, who shrank into her chair the moment that she arrived.

Margaret wordlessly approached the group, pulled out a chair, and, with a brief nod of acknowledgment to Judith, sat down. Her posture was perfect, and she offered the two humans at the table a polite smile as she extended her hand to the one who wasn't cowering in her seat. "My name is Margaret Faust. I apologize for not introducing myself before, but there were more imminent concerns to be dealt with."

Looking from Judith, to Yuubey, then back to the girls, Margaret asked "Has everything been explained to your satisfaction, or is there anything that you would like me to clarify?"

Since the Incubator had already made his offer, it was too late to just send them on their way. No, if she wanted to prevent these two from contracting, she'd have to make the idea seem unattractive enough that they would refuse it of their own free will. This would obviously be much more easy if she just told them why she was opposed to it, but of course that wasn't an option.
