Very Welcome to Ojamajo Loops! Before we start, I want to explain something: This is not my idea. Well, it is, but the original rights are to Innortal and Saproneth, who made and codified this kind of stories, respectively. Now, to the rules to make a loop:
The Rules of the Loops:
One person in a Loop, often the main character, is an Anchor. They are the person who first starts time looping.
There is always at least one Anchor present in a given Time Loop snippet, though it may not be the local one.
The standard pattern for a Loop is that the Anchor (and whoever else is Looping there) come to awareness in a loop at a particular point in the story. From there, events will play out as influenced by the Loopers present, acting with the benefit of their foreknowledge, until either a predetermined end point is reached or all the Loopers have copped it.
To be Awake is to be aware of the Time Loops (that is, to have gone back in time this time.)
The Anchor is the only character guaranteed to be Awake. Even after others have started Looping, it is mostly random as to whether they will be Awake this particular Loop.
Crossovers, fusions, and alternate pasts can also take place. It is perfectly possible, for example, to have the characters Awaken into a Loop which conforms to a fanfic universe rather than reality.
Loops do not have to be in chronological order, but it is strongly preferred that they not require a mutually contradictory order (where A must be before B and B must be before A.)
Just about every Looper is very, very stir crazy.
Now, let's begin!
"Yawn... again? I thought this time I would pass the 18 years..." Doremi Harukaze said. For a while, she had been returning to her past, to the time then she discovered the magic in first place, until she was going to be 18 years old. Rinse and repeat. She saw that she was the only one remembering; whenever she told her sister or friends of it, they just said it was a weird dream.
"Well, if it's going to repeat... I'll better make this good. And I have some ideas..."
"Mom! Doremi's talking alone!"
Doremi stood in front of the Maho-Dou. After that last loop, she wanted to make this quick and use her magic to age to 16.
"Okay, here I go." she said, holding a thing she acquired in her last loop: A smoke grenade. "I have to thank Randy for this..."
She reached the door.
"Whuha?!" The sound startled Majo Rika and Lala, who was sent into the air.
'Now!' Doremi thought, launching the grenade to the front of both magical beings. the effect was fast. in few seconds, the entire store was covered in a pestilent smoke. A few seconds later and before Majo Rika dispelled the smoke with a wind, Doremi escaped the store, holding the three taps she and their friends had.
'And thanks Snake, for the Solid Eye.' she thought, putting both taps into her Subspace pocket. Now, how to give them to her friends and one to Onpu, that was another thing... and she berated herself for not thinking about it.
Aiko sighed. It was that time again. When she and the other Ojamajos went to Osaka to see her mom take care of that man. Even if she knew it was a misunderstanding, that image still wasn't pretty. Even after tens of loops, it still hurt.
"Uh, Doremi?" she called her friend/Anchor.
"Yes? What's wrong?" Doremi said. She was polishing her pink Scissor Blade.
"Can we avoid the trip to Osaka? I just don't want to..."
"See your mom? I see," the pink Ojamajo said, "It still hurts?"
"Yeah. I mean, I know what it is, but yet... I can't feel pain when I see that." Aiko chuckled. "Heh. Funny, no?"
"Maybe. But I can relate," Doremi said, looking at the confused Osaka girl, "Every time we lose Hana, even if I know we will see her again in a few days, it feels... bad. And I have been in more Loops than you." Her grip in the sword/scissor loosened, but she regained it quickly. "But that's ok. That means you haven't suffered Sakura Syndrome, that you still feel something when the things happen. I can recall Lina and Ranma lost their feelings once, and it wasn't pretty."
She smiled, a creepy smile. "And, as long as you continue feeling something, you won't end in Eiken."
"... really?! That's the punishment?!" Aiko then took her Jewelry Tap from her Subspace Pocket and transformed. "Forget what I said! I'm ok with going to mom's! Please don't send me there!" she shouted, flying in Osaka's direction. Doremi just chuckled, and returned to polish her blade.
"Ok... next time, don't attack Majo Tourbillon when she's in her 'I-hate-humans' phase." Doremi said, stripping herself of the solid sap the old queen had thrown onto them.
"Agreed," all Ojamajos said.
"Dear Kami, it looks like she took a page of the CMC's book..." Onpu said.
"Good morning! The owner of this shop is a witch! Goodbye!"
Doremi closed the door as soon as she said that. She knew that was bad... but she couldn't help it; the way the witch flew across the room was too funny to let it pass.
Doremi and Onpu were outside of the Maho-Dou. With a bit of help from a teleporter taken from Engie's things back in a TF2 Loop, they were ready to make their plan. Also, Onpu was able to teleport back and forth from Doremi's house to wherever she would be.
"Ok, you distract her while I do that," Onpu whispered to Doremi.
"You know, I've been in weird loops and have been part of weird plans. Heck, I even defeated Nightmare Moon with three tons of magical spheres and a caribou!" Doremi said, nervously. "But I don't think this is a good idea..."
"Don't worry, it will work out," Onpu said, "Now, give me the Goku 1-star uniform and we'll start."
"I still say a 3-Star would be a better thing to use," Doremi said, giving the clothes to the purple Ojamajo.
"Nah, this will do. Ready?"
"Yeah, let's do-" Doremi said, but when she turned around, Onpu had disappeared. "-it." She sighed. She had forgotten how fast someone could be in a Goku uniform.
"Well, let's do this."
"Welcome, welcome to my magic shop." Majo Rika said, her face covered with her hood.
"Uh... good afternoon... do you have..." Doremi thought it well. "Dream stones?"
"That depends. What kind of dream stones do you want?"
Doremi forgot how weirdly mysterious Majo Rika was when she wasn't a witch blob. "I want stones that grant my wishes, like magic." She noticed the muscles on the witch's hand tense. "Do you know if they exist?"
"W-Well, maybe, but I haven't heard-oh, right!" Majo Rika remembered the things she sold to the girl before. Those would do. "Here, there are pendants. They are not what you are looking for, but are just like it. You can wish for whatever you want..."
"Really? Can I try one?" Doremi asked.
"Hmpf! I only accept effective," the old witch said. Doremi tried her best not to sigh. Whenever Majo Rika was Awake or not, she wanted to gain money. She picked some yen from her Subspace Pocket (Majo Rika didn't notice it, though, she didn't want to finish the charade showing she had powers), and gave them to the old lady. "Thanks, now, you can try them."
Doremi picked one. 'And now, the fun begins.' "Thanks. Now... I WISH EVERYTHING TURNS DARK!"
And so it did.
"H-Huh?! What happened with the light?!" Majo Rika shouted. Whenever she tried to light something, she just couldn't.
'I have to thank Apple Bloom for making darkness lights for me,' Doremi thought, escaping from the Maho-Dou. "You know, you're right, this will work! Thanks!"
Suddenly, the light returned...
But everything else was gone.
Majo Rika and Lala just blinked. Then the witch snapped her fingers, and two packages appeared. "Well, so much for my shop. C'mon Lala, we're returning to Majo-kai!"
"And now, what are we going to do with this?" Doremi asked.
"Well, with the Porons, we can give a few to Apple Bloom and Dr. Light and see what can do they do with them. As for the other things... I can send them to the school as a gift." Onpu said.
"Good plan... but how does Hana fit in all of this?"
"... oh, Kami."
"... But for using forbidden magic, I think the best punishment is not to let you use magic for a week." the queen's voice was heard. From Hazuki's Tap, a sphere of light appeared, which became her Poron. It disappeared as fast as it had appeared.
"I see. So, you're saying my punishment is not to use my magic from that Poron?" Hazuki asked, bluntly, glasses shining with the light.
"Uh... right?" Jou-sama was confused. What did she mean with that?
"Ok, just verifying," the orange Ojamajo said, before... retrieving the same Poron from nowhere?
"This is not the Poron you have, Yuki-san. This is mine, and you said it would be the one in Majo-Kai," Hazuki said. "Now, if you excuse me, my friends are waiting for me in Maho-Dou."
With that, the magical connection with her cut suddenly, and the queen stayed there, blinking.
"...how... how did she know I was Yuki?"
"Y'know, Hazuki," Onpu motioned, "This can be a huge opportunity."
"How?" Hazuki asked, shyly.
"Well, since we all know that things will go back to the way they were when our adventures began, we can do some things differently."
"We can even have some fun too!" Hana chirped.
"I I don't know. What if we-?"
Onpu shook her head. "We won't destroy the timeline by doing this. We're all stuck in a time loop until Yggdrasil can be fixed. " She smiled. "Give it a try, Hazuki."
The orange Ojamajo took an apprehensive look at her purple fellow.
1.1- AND WE BEGIN!
1.2- i'm not the kind of guy that is cute and all. but this is a good point. i think that the fact that there are still normal loopers(well, as normal as a looper is) is because of this.
1.3- what? the cursed forest had a lot of sap this loop!
1.4- some times Doremi takes a page of Ranma and Celestia's books and trolls Majo Rika.
1.5- this should be counted as ilegal stealing? i mean, nobody reported this to the authorities and Majo Rika isn't even from the earth... well, it's stealing, but...
1.6- ah, loopholes. don't you love them?
1.7- yeah... and this is how the Loopers begin to do the wacky things they do.
