FLAG CHALLENGE #NUMBER: 234
Banner of the Magic Maidens
Evil has arrived. Whether it is a swarm of alien monsters, an international crime syndicate, or malevolent demons from another dimension, the world is in danger of plunging into darkness, and the armies of nations prove incapable of harming the diabolical entities threatening humanity. But hope and justice may yet triumph, as rumours of young girls acquiring mysterious powers and weapons began to surface into the limelight. And all they need is someone to lead and organize them, an organization to turn a scattered group of defenders into a powerful fighting force - and a banner to go with it.
Design a flag centered around Magical Girls, whether it is for an international or national crime-fighting organization, a faction, or even a country run or inhabited by Magical Girl(s). The rules are as follows:
Submissions Open: Now
- The organization or faction must be based on Earth. No magic lunar kingdom, no spacefaring alien mascots running the show, you get the drill.
- There must be at least one element of the flag tying it to Magical Girls, based on the lore you have written. I am not asking for a full story, but some explanation is needed.
- The use of existing magical girl shows is currently forbidden. However, if too many have trouble coming up with entries, I may consider lifting that rule.
Submissions Close: 20th October, 2020, 2200 hours (GMT+8)
Brilliant.共産 奇跡 少女"To be a 共産奇跡少女, or Communist Miracle ☭ Girl, there are 3 tenets you must learn:
KYŌSAN KISEKI SHŌJO
Go~! Workers of the World! Go Go Go! Reach up to the Stars, Past the Earth and Mars! Grab your Scythe, grab your Wand! To GO GO GO Beyond~!
View attachment 592268
I. There is no such thing as Magic only the miracles that can be performed by those proletarian women who harness the innate inner power of the working class, the energy of Communism personified. The Workers' Spirit. These communist miracles are your power, but you must remember from where they derive: your devotion to the ideals of Marxism, Equality, and Sisterhood!
II. Your wand is your life, for a Miracle ☭ Girl's unique wand is what allows the power of communism to flow from within yourself and be rendered into the ability to shape and cheat reality as you wish. To break or lose your wand is lose that power, and to lose the ability to serve the State in its march towards the Stateless Utopia. Such a failure is unbecoming of a Miracle ☭ Girl. Keep your wand at hand and always well maintained!
III. Evil must be vanquished no matter where it hides or how it takes form. And evil is found in no greater way than in Capitalism and the exploitation of the Working Class. To destroy evil, we must destroy capitalism. Never forget this mission, but never turn away the chance to combat the woes of our civilian sisters- and brothers-in-labor!
These three tenets dictate what it means to be a Miracle ☭ Girl. Learn them. Study them. Memorize them. And in time, if you are worthy to wield this great power, you will even understand them."
~ Miracle-Marshal Nosaka Yunyun, Speech at the People's Glorious Miracle ☭ Girl Academy, Osaka, Japan, 1960
"I won't bore you with the science. Partly because I don't know it, partly because it doesn't matter. If procedure works, you get a Heart Gem. If it's stable, the gem gets to go in a wand you design. And with your wand you can do anything."
~ Miracle ☭ Girl Shūsui Aoi, Lance-Corporal, 1st Honshu Battalion, 1957
"A lot of civilians think it's a matter of point, mutter funny poetry, and shoot. But it isn't! Yes you have to aim, but it isn't just poetry, it isn't a magic spell. It's a poetic phrase we learn to evoke the correct image, the correct desire deep in our hearts, deep in the Well of Communism deep in our proletariat being. We call that poetic phrase a 気合歌詞 (kiai kashi) or a "power lyric". The desire of the power lyric, once it reaches that energy of Communism within, or 労働者気 (rōdō-sha ki), the Workers' Spirit, then flows into the wand. The wand... interacts with quantum particles in the right way, it turns desire into will, and will into action.
For example, watch as I point my wand and say the power lyric for making a blast of ice. Oh wondrous frost, or blessed chill, spring true the cold wind of entropy! See? See how this flower has been frozen solid so rapidly? Because I willed it, and but it only happened because of my true faith in the cause of communism. Hm? Why are young girls the bulk of our forces? Because women have more compassion and empathy for their fellow. It's simple biochemistry! And the youth are always the most fanatical, without the bitterness and cynicism so many adults get. Why would we waste time training old men, when they have the least natural talent for communist miracles? They can serve in the Workers' Liberation Army, like they have for years. And that isn't an insult! The WLA was the original backbone for the revolution in Tokyo, and what enabled the State to spread so far on land. Miracle ☭ Girls ensured victory in Tokyo and broke enemy militaries, but its the Army that did the heavy lifting.
Ah, yes. I have heard of this... Astolfo Martel. He knew his chances of being accepted, even with his talents, were slim. It's logical he would disguise himself. I fully support allowing males and girls past the prime ages to apply! I do. I just have doubts that he is really so... powerful. I think it might just be politics. But, hey, I might be wrong. I doubt it, though."
~ Miracle ☭ Girl Anastasia Serebrekov, Lieutenant-Major, 3rd Baltic Battalion, 2006
"Let this committee dismiss all concerns. Firstly, our research has shown that these... abominations called fascist thaumaturgy and liberal vodunology are both weak perversions of true communist miraclecraft. For the fascists, their thaumaturges claim they are drawing in Þrúð, a sort of divine energy from their racial gods. From this sentence, we see their lunacy. We already knew this when the fascist nations not only descended into paganism, but offically embraced a henotheistic doctrine that every fascist race possessed its own equally existent pantheon. The failures of their system against glorious communism drove them mad long ago. This madness means that when they think in devotion to their gods, they are unwittingly thinking about a greater good that binds all humans and makes them equal, as they are creations of the same divine. This is quite obviously a misinterpretation of the Workers' Spirit.
This is seen similarly in liberal vodunology. The voodoo-girls of the failing, corrupt democracies to the West claim that they use aether, a sort of energy field made up by lwa, a term once used by oppressed negroes for spirits, now reconstituted by bourgeois false science to mean the energy of a human 'soul'. Of course they cannot even agree on this, as all liberals are wont to argue. Some claim instead that lwa or souls are made of aether. Regardless, it is yet again a binding energy they call upon. The fascists believe they draw it from heavens, raining down as a blessing, while the liberals believe they pull it in from the air around them. Because of this, their magic is weaker, as their mental image is incorrect, as they should be drawing from the Workers' Spirit within, not anything without.
Our findings confirm what we all knew. The thaumamädchens are barely able to send more than six bolts of lightning from their Wand-lugers, and voodoo-girls struggle to hit mach 3 on their power-brooms, let alone our bare standard mach 4 travel speed. Their miraclecraft is inferior, for they have not discovered anything but what we already know, misinterpreting it and utilizing it in such a fashion as to weaken themselves. And they must. For to recognize our science as correct is to admit the truth of Communism as the only moral, proper, and natural ideology of humanity. Which they will never do. The fools."
~ Elsa Degurrechaff, Representative for the Vienna Commune, Chairwoman of the State Committee on Foreign Miraclecraft, 1970
It's kind of hilarious seeing someone with the surname Degurechaff declaring communism to be the be all and end all, considering Tanya's comments on the subject in the Movie.
I think it's fine. You did say it's Earth's branch of the IWF. :3@Remitonov Is my submission OK? Or does it break the rule of "The organization or faction must be based on Earth. No magic lunar kingdom, no spacefaring alien mascots running the show, you get the drill."?
I can edit the description, though I will argue that while an alien starts it, the IWF-Zodiac is human based, human controlled, and based only on Earth, even if the rest of IWF is in space.
