Personally I don't think this is the case. Walpurgisnacht was essentially the cause why Homura made that specific wish and became a PM. Before can accept the implications of Walpurgisnacht=Homura I need more evidence than just her design.

Well, personally I'm curious about Mami's wishes. The other PM (Puella Magi) have each of their wishes, so they have the ability based on their wishes. Like Madoka wants to save the cat from the car (I don't know what her other abilities, except her archery skill), Homura wants to protect Madoka (hence the space-time manipulation ability), Sayaka wants to heal Kyosuke (her nigh-invulnerable healing factor), and Kyoko who wants to all people want to listen to her father's sermons (well based from the wiki, her ability based from light and illusion but she ditch it since her family massacre).

Judging by her numbers of muskets and her "Unlimited Musket Works" ability, what she really wishes to have is "she doesn't want to be alone"?

Her wish when she became a MS (PM) was to not die. Pretty sure that her powers from that were similar to Sayaka's, maybe a mix between Sayaka's healing and Homura's time travelling depending on how she worded her wish (if she said "I want another chance to live a great life", for example, she'd probably have simple, weak time travel abilities and hyperhealing). But seeing how she was in a very tight situation when approached by Kyuubey, I highly doubt she wished for anything more complex than "I want to live". She admitted that she didn't think her wish through, evidenced by her failure to include her parent's safety in her wish.

I don't think that Mami's muskets are from her wish, unless she wished for another chance at life to shoot whoever caused that car accident

Q: There's a few place in the script that I'd like to touch on, first about Mami and Kyoko. How is their "wish" connected to their powers when they became magical girls?
A: In Mami's case, her wish "to connect to life" [editor's note: she wanted to live] gave her the power to "tie" and "combine" things together. That's why her power comes from the ribbon. By using the ribbon as a weapon, she can use that to produce guns that are useful in a battle. In ep3, Homura is stopped in her tracks by being tied up. That is her true magical power. She has the most experience so has a lot of different magical powers beyond those of her original powers.

Guns versus using katanas?

I guess. Though she's fine with kicking opponents at close range.

Found out that Walpurgis Night has no beginning (a witch from the start).

Are some drama CD dialogues hinted at the episodes (aside from Mami and Kyoko's part)?

And what are the 2ch jargon related to Mami's decapi- *chomp*

No date yet, and it's three movies. From what I recall, the first two are basically recaps/retellings.

Just because she doesn't turn into a witch doesn't mean the soul gem doesn't get consumed by grief. It's when the gem would normally cause a witch to appear that Madoka "defeats" the witch before it is made, causing the magical girl to disappear. And no idea what you're talking about in terms of curses. Madoka already destroyed her own witch.

by curses i meant the monster...she doesn't know they exist right?

madoka gem was about to get consumed by grief but she stopped that??? oh i get it since her wish was to stop witches even if she turns to a witch it will be prevented right??

remember the earth-sized witch in the last ep? it madoka's witch, but since her wish is to erase every witch in past, present, future in every world with her own hand, she destroyed her own witch and created a paradox. after that, her life have no beginning and end anymore, she shifted to another plane of existence and become a god
