    "Wh-who are you!?" Minna manages to stammer.

    "D~uh, I just told you~" Katherine says, rolling her eyes dramatically. "I'm from Missouri! Where are you from?"

    "P-Prussia..." Minna manages, looking extremely confused.

    "Oh cool, you ever make a bra with coconuts?" she queries eagerly, then blatantly looks down at Minna's chest. "Or, uh, seashells."

    Minna blinks. "What," she states, an edge in her voice. The implications of that last statement gave her thoughts something to coalesce around, apparently.

    "I've done the coconut thing," Sakamoto says evenly.

    Several pairs of eyes turn to stare at her.

    "What?" Sakamoto says. "When in Rome and all that, right?"

    "Right on!" Kathy says, thrusting her hand out. Sakamoto is savvy enough to know what she's going for, and trades a high-five with Kathy. "China represent!" The blonde's hand blurs, and before you know what's what, a gunshot rings out.

    Witches plummet for earth, diving and rolling under tables, chairs and each other. Sakamoto keeps a serene face, facing her death with a Warriors Honor. She gravely looks down to examine her wound with stoic fortitude... and dusts unbelieving at an unmarred white uniform.

    "Buh?" she says, actually looking put-out after all that buildup.

    "Sorry," Katherine says, not sounding sorry at all. She twirls a revolver around her finger with deft skill, smacking back into the holster on her hip with a satisfying SMACK! of steel-on-leather.

    You squint at the gun.

    "That cannot be a Colt," you say evenly.

    "Single Action Army!" Katherine declares proudly. "Single action is the mark of a true marksman!"

    "You shot a gun at me," Sakamoto says in a distant voice.

    "They're just blanks, scaredy-cat," Katherine objects. "I'm not CRAZY or anything."

    Your eyes track to the ceiling and find a small hole in it. You wisely say nothing.

    "So, uh, Minna," you say, crouching to address her where she huddles under a table. "You want to talk about terrifying and depressing War Stuff that will probably lead to suicidal sorties?"

    Minna eyes Katherine O'Hare. "If we can do it outside? In a fucking heartbeat."

    "You're INSANE!" Luuchini declares, almost bouncing around as she circles Katherine. "Can I try? Can I?"

    "Sure!" Katherine says, drawing the revolver, and Minna hauls you along as half the Witches bail out of the pub and the other half dive to dogpile O'Hare.

    "Okay," Minna says a few minutes later, leaning against the brick wall of the pub. "We're outside. We're alone. What did you want to tell me?"

    "I've got a theory about the beams and stuff. It has to be connected to Trude's sister."

    She gives you a dubious look. "How, exactly?"

    Well, the Alium beams seem to be converging on her last known position, for one. Plus how when Sanya accidentally intercepted the transmissions she saw the the hospital along with all the other places that got attacked by infiltrators. Coupled with the fact that Chris is MIA, its too much to be a coincidence.

    Another thing. Chris was missing from the hospital BEFORE the rockets hit. The aliens certainly didn't dig her out of the rubble faster than the repair crews. That means the hospital WAS the target, not one of several. They sent multiple rockets because they needed to cover their tracks and knew that we would probably shoot some down. (which we did)

    What i'm trying to say is that it's a testament to their oddity that they tried far more ridiculous techniques, when simpler strategies (Like attacking the wounded or incapped, finding out how they tick) would have come first in a humans mind.

    If Chris isn't a witch, but is from the same family as a witch. That could mean she does have some degree of talent, or at least a LOT more than an average person. Sanya went nuts because she was exposed to the martian signal beams while trying to sleep. And Sanya was affected because she has the whole magic radar/signal talent.

    What if Chris has the same ability? ALL of the martian signal beams are focused on a single location nearby where Chris went missing. If she is in a coma, she would essentially be asleep this entire time. And even if she isn't, she is in all likelihood located at ground zero for all of these broadcasts.

    "So, uh, those Martian signals are narrow directional broadcasts, right? And at least a few of them converge near that hospital Trude's sister was in, right? And it's really weird that she just like went poof, right? And all this went down right before a major invasion is launched, so I figure, like..."

    Minna is giving you The Look.

    "... like. There's stuff. Happening."

    "And that's it?" Minna says, looking extremely dubious.

    "One more thing," you say. "Sanya had her mind flooded by Martian mindfuckery just because she was asleep near one of the broadcasts. Like a radio with the tuner removed, pulling in every signal nearby. And there's some... weird component to the Martian signals. You know... Martian-y."

    That means "possible psionic factors" but Minna reads between the lines well enough. "Right, so?"

    "How long has Trude's sister been in a coma?"

    Okay, so, plan to deal with Chris:
    Zorch her with radar/radio, Trude disarms and/or KOs. Ian maybe possibly frags her Strikers.

    The widow had its adventure too... We've saved the witches twice with it, and probably turned the tide during the naval battle.

    She couldn't go all the way with us though, and we need to respect that.

    We'll be back to her soon enough... Get that nose art on er.
    >> Starshadow 02/29/12(Wed)04:34 No.18147508
    She gave her all for us. She deserves a rest. And a tuneup. And some repairs. And a commendation. And a goddam bath. Just like us really. Fucks sake guys, when is the last time we actually SLEPT?! In a BED?!

    And now were even deeper in shit. I totally called it on the alium brainwashing. Lets follow that logic a bit further

    1. Chris has been in a coma for along time
    2. Aliens are broadcasting Psi signals
    3. Sanya succumbed to the signals in a few days and she only caught a bit of the full magnitude.


    1. Chris wasn't abducted, she woke up under alien control and escaped the hospital.
    2. The buzz bombs were sent to wipe out all evidence.
    3. Chris is now hiding somewhere in the vicinity of London
    4. If Chris is awake that means she can actively fight back against the controlling signals.
    5. The aliens turned the signals up to 11, to maintain control or to... provide power?


    1. The aliens mounted a massive assault on Britain. But this isn't just a straight up attack, this is a EXTRACTION. And we need to stop it fucking ASAP or Chris is never coming back.
    2. If we triangulate the beams and locate ground zero, we find Chris.
    3. If the transmitters are destroyed the signals weaken.

    The only way out of this mess is to capture and subdue Chris. Get her into a signal shelter ala Sanya, and mount simultaneous attacks on all major transmitters. I hope the Richelieu and Spee survived, cause were going to need more dakka...

    “Alexandria Field, this is Tomcat Oh-Two-Actual requesting clearance to land.” Below he could just make out the outline of Fortress Alexandria, perched atop a hill overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The voice that came in reply was, of course, female. The voice was crisp with just a hint of an accent James couldn’t identify- definitely not European, probably Japanese- they had a pretty big stable of Witches, and a lot of them had plenty of experience flying over China and Korea before the Martians had dropped in.
    “Tomcat Flight, you are cleared for landing on runway oh-one.” Yep, definitely Japanese. And, from the accent-transcending iciness in her voice, none too pleased about the arrangements. Of course, for all the shit that the 48th had talked about the witches, the idea of moving from a dustball prefab airbase somewhere west of Bumfuq to a fully-furnished Witch Base had been greeted with the enthusiasm some children reserve for Christmas. The excitement came from the combination of Real Food, a better supply chain, and magic pantless and apparently female people running around. (Roughly in that order, as well.)
    >> It's almost 2AM, Thank God I've not got anything to do tomorrow. Writefag 02/29/12(Wed)04:45 No.18147562
    “Roger, Alexandria Field. Thank you, kindly.” He couldn’t help but add the slight Texan drawl that he’d picked up from Huntsman. “Alright, Tomcats, two by two, starting with Blue Flight. Me and Flip’ll stay up and cover you.” The kid had definitely found his place in the squadron, despite being there less than a month. He got along well with everyone, knew his shit in the air and was a damn good artist, leastwise better than the two guys Franklin had beat the shit out and chased off for painting his plane. (He’d later found himself rather enjoying the “irony of such a disgustingly racist caricature being painted on the plane of the finest negro pilot in the Army Air Corps” and had kept “Black Betty”.)

    And two-by-two the P-38’s descended, perhaps the first male-piloted fighters to do so in the Fortress’s operational history, it was probably a historical moment. James just wanted to get on the ground before one of the pilots got themselves killed. Ten minutes later he was rolling to a stop and not a minute too soon as he already saw a girl squaring off against Bozo, backed by another three witches.

    “Oi! HEY! What in the fuck, Bozo?!”
    >> FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! Writefag 02/29/12(Wed)04:46 No.18147573
    The Blue Flight pilot turned to acknowledge James, and in that second the witch struck, delivering a wicked jab to his turned head. And from there, it was a melee. The other three witches squared off against the rest of Blue Flight, with the rest of the 48th pilots wisely pulling themselves back. “Hey! Dammit! BREAK IT UP!” James tried to get in between the two groups and force them apart, and was rewarded with one of Bozo’s stray punches, knocking him back and nearly to the ground. The pilots were larger, and Mancini at the very least had been in the odd scrap more than once, but the girls were fast and, well, fast.

    He was just getting himself ready to have another go at breaking up the brawl when a gunshot echoed down the runway and everything froze. Slowly, the congregation looked towards the source, a tiny, angry Asian woman holding what looked in her hands to be a grossly oversized M1911. “Listen up. I’m only gonna say this once and then I’m gonna be angry. I want you boys back over there, and you girls to your barracks, now.”

    Silently and with their eyes glued to the girl with the gun, the two groups separated; the four witches slinked back off towards the main building, shooting venomous glances back towards the pilots. Blue flight attempted to both skitter back behind James and attempted to do so in a way that kept their pilot’s coolness. It wasn’t terribly effective.

    Destroying the transmitters is going to be ridiculously difficult if they are as far into martian territory as we assume.

    It's going to be tight... but I think we may be force to take the "befriend the shit out of Chris" route.

    Alien support is going to be ridiculous... They're mounting a full assault on Britain as a DISTRACTION god damn it.

    We need interference from Sean
    We need precision from Ian
    We're gonna need the whole 501st on this for force.

    And most importantly... We're gonna need the biggest shit eating grin and shiniest pair of aviators in both universes. We know this is going to end up being a battle of beyond strength of arms or tech.

    We're gonna need to call on a higher power... We're gonna need.

    The girl holstered her weapon. “You got a handle on these chucklefucks?” She asked in a surprisingly good American accent. She must’ve seen the confusion on his face about this fact, since she added with rolled eyes, “I was born in Portland. Think you can control these assholes until your CO gets here?”

    James blinked, trying to reorganize his pilotly essence. “What if you’re talking to him?” He said indignantly.

    The girl rolled her eyes again. “First off, Chucklefuck Number One over there belted you pretty good in that fight and neither of you have batted an eye at it.” James threw an angry glance back at Bozo, remembering the fact.

    “Sorry, ‘bout that Knight.” He said apologetically.

    The girl continued. “Second, I’ve met Captain Bristol. And thirdly, it figures that the White Knight couldn’t resist dicking around in someone else’s fight, good to see you finally got popped for it for once.”

    By now James had recovered and adapted to the situation. “And what about you, eh? Your girls just out here for a tan? Bet they got exactly what they wanted: a brawl with those barbaric male pilots, just what you guys need to send us off packing, eh? A good scrap an a bloodied witch nose? Looks real good.”

    “You dumbshi-“ The girl started before she was interrupted.

    “Lt. Chin.”

    The girl snapped to attention. “Commander.”

    “Why was there a fight on my field?”

    “I wasn’t here to see how it started but-“

    “I’ll find out from Miss Frantisek later. And who is this?” She said looking to James expectantly. Her voice was certainly the one that he’d heard over the radio earlier. It was smooth, almost demure, but with an unmistakable tone of command- she spoke and those around her listened.

    “Ma’am. First Lieutinant James Anders.” He gave a smart salute. She was a witch, but this was her base and she was a superior officer, and he figured they’d done enough damage already.

    “Ah, the White Knight himself.” She commented. “I’d ask that you keep a close watch on your fellow airmen until Captain Bristol arrives. Lt. Chin?”


    “Would you show Lt. Anders where his squadron’s quarters are located?”

    He could tell she had definite reservations, but with gritted teeth she replied with an enthusiastic “Yes, ma’am.” And with that, the enigmatic Japanese lady that he assumed was Flight Commander Rina Okabe turned and departed.

    “Well, Miss Chin, lead the way.”

    “Kiss my ass, pilot.”
