Fanfic / Magica Madoka Veneficus Puella

Go To

Magica Madoka Veneficus Puella is a dead Puella Magi Madoka Magica fanfic by The Moiderah of Writing on It follows an Alternate Continuity in which Homura dies fighting Walpurgis Nacht, and Madoka wishes for a world in which her friends can survive.

She gets it.

Now, not only are the Puella Magi (now called Veneficus Puella) and the witches more powerful; the Muggles are now fully aware of the whole system, there is internal conflict between the Incubators, and the magic system has been turned on its head. Both Madoka and Homura are the only ones completely unaware of the new changes, and have to adapt. Fast.

Notable for having an author who may or may not be a troper. note 



Now has a Spacebattles thread.

And a second one.

And a third.

Currently, a rewrite is being done under the name of "Magica Madoka Venefica R". Who knows when that'll turn up.

This Fanfic provide examples of:

  • All According to Plan: Just when things are going smoothly for the heroines, the Incubators hatch a plan to manipulate Madoka and EnBey into forcing Homura to become a Veneficus Puella. The result? Madoka is incapacitated in battle, and Homura, filled to the brim with guilt for being unable to protect Madoka past and present, unleashes destructive powers beyond EnBey's control. Plus the Incubators may very well have a better source of energy to exploit.
    • And if Word of God is something to follow by, this may have been canon!Kyubey's intent all along when he had to pick a universe to drop Madoka and Homura into way back in the beginning.
  • All There in the Manual: See Spacebattles thread.
  • Alternate Universe: Madoka and Homura still remember the old world, and they have to learn how to roll with the punches. Quickly.
  • And I Must Scream: Some of the Remnants, witches who manage to sort of regain human form, are perfectly aware of their situation, while being unable to think clearly enough to act.
  • Apocalypse How: If Homura becomes a witch, it'll be an X-3+ at least (a good chunk of the universe is destroyed), provided that she isn't stopped. Same thing could easily happen if she contracts with EnBey and Madoka dies.
    • VP!Homura nearly caused a Class 0 at absolute minimum, but thanks to Madoka Taking A Level In Warrior Therapist, she was pulled back from the Despair Event Horizon and banished her demons.
    • Advertisement:
    • Word of God states "VP!Homura can destroy several universes if she wants to.", putting her squarely as potential X-5.
    • Recently, something along the lines of an X-4 seems to have happened in the original universe Madoka and Homura were from, with their alternates paying the price.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: Homura in the VP!-verse, Sayaka becomes one in the original PM-verse.
  • Author Avatar: EnBey, if this Spacebattles post is any indication.
  • Badass Adorable: Homura, who's got her glasses back.
    • Madoka, who can now spam crossbows.
  • Badass Normal: Guess who was?
    • Junko now seems to have taken up the void
  • Berserk Button: Do not harm Madoka in any way, or Homura will hurt you. EnBey is not exempt from this.
    • Same with Yoshio and Sayaka.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Homura. It doesn't inconvenience her very much.
  • Break the Cutie: Thought Sayaka got a raw deal in the original? In this fic, she was broken before the damn thing even began. It gets worse. She might be better off for it.
    • Yoshio Kiyomizu, the saved/recovered human remnant of witch Elly.
  • Broken Bird: VPuniverse!Madoka, being transported to a canon universe and undergoing the same process that Homura did in canon, for Sayaka's sake.
  • Butt-Monkey: The News Crew. The poor guys can't ever seem to get a break.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Mami, as taught by Kazuko.
    • And Sayaka who uses Irish for the naming of her moves. Madoka uses French.
  • Canis Latinicus: "Magica Madoka Venificus Puella" means "Magical Madoka [evil, lit. poisonous] Magic Girl". With "magic" as a noun, this kills the grammar—making the title make exactly as little sense as the original, reflect the world as it is post-wish, and just plain sound cool.
    • Fridge Brilliance: There is no denying that the title is worded wrongly. However, take a moment to take a look at the order of the words, and compare it with the original title. The title of this fanfic is a Sdrawkcab Title, which makes reference to how everything in this continuity has been figuratively turned upside down!
      • Fridge Horror: Veneficus Puella can be translated to mean "wizard girl", or more simply "witch". In fact, the feminine form of veneficus does mean witch.
    • The title also kills grammar with gender disagreement: unlike English, Latin words have a gender according to their postfixes. "Venificus" has the male gender because it ends with '-us', while all other words in the title are female because they end with '-a'.
  • Cast Full of Gay / Everyone Is Bi: Only two-three people are confirmed lesbians... but every other female with a decent appearance is either bi or lesbian (with the exception of Yoshio, but only because we don't know yet).
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: The author, if the Author's Notes at the end are any indication:

  • Cluster F-Bomb: EnBey, in very stark contrast to the rest of his kind.
    • Everyone, except Madoka (not counting when TorBey is influencing her) swears multiple times.
  • Crack Fic: One of the main characters is a swearing Incubator, the fights are ludicrous, and the number of references in every chapter is enormous. The most sane thing in the fic is the world, and even that's slightly unhinged.
  • Crapsack World: The world's political systems are streamlined for use by the Veneficus Puellae, the death rate is significantly lower for the girls, and the Incubator that is provided isn't actively trying to screw them over. These are good things. Meanwhile, the witches cause horrible collateral damage, the inhabitants are still incredibly disagreeable, and some are willing to rape, torture, and kill recovered Remnants out of a misguided sense of "Justice".''
  • Creator Backlash: This is now considered something of an Old Shame by its writer, who claims that it had bad characterisation, that the OC Incubator was a self-insert, that the events of the story and the story itself were both stupid, and that there was no payoff for a lot of things touched upon during it. (Post made by him on the subject)
  • Cryptic Conversation: Played with in the sense that most of the Cryptic Conversations are about what is considered common knowledge, but neither Madoka nor Homura have that knowledge. Essentially, it's an aversion of As You Know.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: As per the original, this exists in spades.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: All Veneficus Puella outfits are black and made of demons.
  • Deadpan Snarker: EnBey, Sayaka, Homura, Mami, Kyouko, Kazuko...let's just say that there's a lot of snark flying around.
  • Deadline News: A reporter and his cameraman are killed during a live broadcast of a Witch attack.
  • Determinator: Homura, who gets clubbed and beaten by lord knows how many Torbeys and keeps a perfectly straight face afterwords. Lampshaded by EnBey.
  • Destructive Saviour: Reconstructed. If it weren't for the Veneficus Puellae, the witches would be unstoppable. Despite the damage that is caused by each fight (which is mostly repaired by the witches' magic release), the Veneficus Puellae are thanked, and even celebrated, for their service.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Homura nearly crossed it, which could have lead to the destruction of Earth. Thankfully, Madoka was there to pull her back.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: People's general reacton to Homura punching EnBey in the face.
    • VPuniverse!Madoka does this to Madokami.
  • Does Not Like Men: Sayaka
  • Eldritch Abomination: The witches, obviously. TorBey and the other Incubators have elements of this too.
  • Escape from the Crazy Place: The general plot for many of the characters in Episode 21-22.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Enbey is a jerkass to the nth degree, but he draws the line at entering girl's rooms.
    Enbey: "I may be a tiny thingamabob, but there is no way in hell that I'm going to invade a little girl's home just to ask her a few questions. The thought's kind of creepy, really."
  • Even More Evil Twin: TorBey compared to KyuBey.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: EnBey knows he's racing against three things: the next Walpurgis Nacht, TorBey turning Homura into a witch, and Madoka's death. If any of these come to pass very bad things will happen. So what does he do? Contracts Homura. Which backfires spectacularly.
  • Fantastic Racism: Possibly. Kyouko exterminates entire clans of familiars if just one of them steps out of line.
  • Fix Fic:Magical Girls now have an Incubator that isn't trying to screw them over, but there are still witches around, more powerful/deadly than before, and the other Incubator makes Kyubey look nice in comparison.
  • Flechette Storm: Madoka's more impressive attacks are this.
