Couple things. Been having some gnarly storms roll through- not long lived, but lots of lightning, some of it pretty close. We're actually also under a flood advisory, so if i disappear, blame the weather. Still working on that world notes thing, but I don't have an ETA on it, sorry. actually already cut some things out of it- the timeline, namely, so hopefully it'll have it done sooner rather than later. Not this week though. Been working on some other projects too, outlines for a couple pieces of writefagging I want to do for SWQ, couple historical battles that, honestly, are too balls out nuts to miss. Those'll probably go up when SWQ comes back though. archives here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Strike%20witches%201989and pastebin cliff notes here: http://pastebin.com/zFxWNup1++The noise of Joe's pickup truck carries far enough that, even when he's just passing the tennis court a couple of blocks down, you can hear it. Still, it's a healthy sounding engine, not like what you'd expect, given the truck it's in. Of course, you'd have expected that, given that both your uncle and Joe tend to pass their time by rebuilding car motors. You've spent most of the day handling paperwork, mostly performance reviews on the wyvern. You're impressed, though honestly the airframe and engine performance doesn't seem like that much of an improvement over the earlier model. 1/3
>>25644759eh minnesota got hit hard over the weekend also...and more storms tonight
That said, though, you're impressed so far with it's cockpit improvements- especially the integrated sensor systems installed. Merlin's own report- filled out in her neat cursive- sits on your desk, waiting to be handed over to the techs with yours. You'll take care of that tomorrow- this round of improvements and tweaking is supposed to last at least a week, but you doubt you'll spend all that time on the ground anyway- if nothing else, you're pretty sure you can get some flight time in with one of the spare tomcats on the base, if for no other reason than to stay current on the airframe. Merlin's busy packing for her leave- less than a week, since she has to be available for the next testing cycle. You chuckle to yourself at that- she's been the major source of feedback for the Chance-Vought team, not you, and they protested her leaving. Still, Ice told them in no uncertain terms she'd earned the leave, and it wouldn't be canceled. You're down in the living room, keeping Goose company. She's doing a lot better- whatever 'old witch trick' they used seems to have been the ticket. She's kinda quiet, though- you two don't interact much, and it's hard to tell exactly what stories Mav's been telling the girl about you. Patty, meanwhile, is on emergency leave herself- her grandmother having died last night. She only just got the phone call about an hour ago- she'll be gone a couple days. While she didn't explicitly ask it, you figured you'd help look after Goose in the mean time. 2/3
The TV's playing some national geographic program or other- something on the Yellowstone fires. Goose is engrossed in it, you're only half paying attention, trying to go over the laundry list of changes done to your bird in this iteration. All small stuff, really- tweaking, is what they'd called it. Getting it set 'just so'. Normally, that’s a job that would fall to you and your ground crew, except right now you don't have one. They're still technically being trained, though apparently they're out of the top one percent of the fleet's ground crews. Still, there's something disconcerting about dealing with nothing but civilian techs, even when they're as close to the navy as these guys are.Outside, you can make the distinct sound of the pickup pulling into the building's lot. You tend to forget that this building was specifically constructed for a mixed squadron, and you don't really have a driveway. Shit, there's a duty desk up front, though right now you don't have anyone to man it anyway.  Greet Joe and Rufus at the door.  Nah, let the Boss or Slider handle it. Rufus likes them both.
>>25644811>[x] Greet Joe and Rufus at the door.
>>25644811[x] Nah, let the Boss or Slider handle it. Rufus likes them both.Also, HAHA, STRIKERS, ect

Hopefully get more interactions with Goose though. Best night of the week!>>25644759Hope you feeling better then this morning, not coughing up shit, though you probably wouldn't be running the thread if you weren't.
>>25644811[X] Greet Joe and Rufus at the door.Puppy!
>>25644811Hey goose want to see my puppy?
>>25644811> Greet Joe and Rufus at the door.Also, yay! Moar Goose!
>>25644935More Goose time please.
>>25644811>[x] Nah, let the Boss or Slider handle it. Rufus likes them both.
>>25644876I rather doubt Joe will mind being greeted by Slider or Ice.
>>25644811> Greet Joe and Rufus at the door.Goose time.
>>25644811[x] Greet Joe and Rufus at the door.So, guys. Based on the contents of the letter last week, I'd say the theory about Konstantina being a clueless virgin gained a few points. Really, Comrade Stork?
>>25644811> Greet Joe and Rufus at the door.Puppy tiem. Also, we don't need Joe falling in love with the WHOLE squadron. That's clearly Frank's job.
>>25645120It's quiet fitting.
>>25645120We should send her some American Porno.as a gag gift. say we cant get anything else through the EEVUL CAPITALIST ILLUMINATI censors
>>25644759> Greet Joe and Rufus at the door.
>>25644811[X] Greet Joe and Rufus at the door. >>25645120I bet she doesn't even know how to cook.>call comes into Moscow in the middle of the night>high-level member of the Politburo answers"COMRADE, I HEARD FROM MY DAHLINK AND WANT TO LEARN HOW COOK! SEND CHEF IMMEDIATELY TO TEACH ME HOW COOK!!""Comrade Konstantina....do you have idea what time it is?"
>>25645374And then she calls the KGB chief to ask him what sex is again."I THOUGHT WE ALREADY SENT A BOOK TO YOU ABOUT THAT!!"
>>25645510"Why don't you ask your wingmen?""...they're all dead. Again.""GODDAMNIT, KONSTANTINA!"
>>25645510"But it did not mention comrade stork, so I thought the capitalists may have sabotaged it"
>>25645586"You naïve fool! Comrade Stork does not exist! Book I sent you was correct!"
>>25645586>>25645608>Meanwhile the CIA is listening in and wondering what the fuck is going.
I will be disappointed if we don't get a stalinka interlude at some point
>>25645644No, they're listening in and munching popcorn because this is the best entertainment they've ever had on the job.
>>25645644"I think they're saying that the "Stork" project got sabotaged, and because of that it was canceled?""Then whats with this frank guy?""I dunno, maybe he's working for them? Or is he with another department?"
>>25645666and they are recording it so years later they can sell it on CD
>>25644811> Greet Joe and Rufus at the door.We have a while to get Rufus to mess with Ice and Slider
[x] Greet Joe and Rufus at the door. Part of you wants to let Slider or Ice handle it- Slider, in particular, hates being licked, and Rufus seems to make it a point to slobber all over her face every chance he gets- but it's kind of rude to not go to the door, you figure. Joe's radio is still blaring Iron Maiden- he picked up an appreciation for Aces high after you had him listen to it since then, his taste in music has become fairly suspect. Rufus, hanging halfway out of the passenger side window, his tongue hanging out of his mouth, swivels his head to look at you while Joe turns off the truck. He seems to take a second to process you as being you- and then frantically scrambles out of the window, landing with an audible whump on the concrete and rapidly gaining speed as he runs towards you. Rufus knocks your ass flat to the concrete, simultaneously trying to crawl into your lap and lick your face off- with poor success on either front, though not for lack of enthusiasm. Joe, meanwhile, just laughs. You, meanwhile, can't help but crack a smile, taking a minute to pet your dog before he calms down and pokes his nose in the house. “Hey, Frank.” Joe greets, tossing you a towel. Kid's smart, you'll give him that. “Hey Joe. How was the drive?” You respond, doing your dead level best to wipe Rufus slobber off your face. You're marginally successful. Joe shrugs. “Not too bad, getting on post was about the worst of it.” he laughs, and motions to Rufus. “The gate guard thought he was a couple guys in a dog suit.”You laugh at that. “Well, he is pretty damn big.”Joe nods. “Yeah. Hey, we haven't eaten since we stopped at a McDonalds near Bakersfield.” “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.” “then let's go to Santa's! Hang on, lemme see if anyone else wants to come” "well, there's this place I've been meaning to try...." Other! (write in)
>>25645767> “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”
>>25645767>[x] “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”
>>25645767>[x] "Then let's go to Santa's! Hang on, lemme see if anyone else wants to come."
>>25645767>[x] “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”Sharing is caring.
>>25645767> “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”There's food, dog, and witches here. Forget going out.
>>25645767> “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”Don't wanna get Rufus here then immediately leave...unless the twins can't cook
>>25645767We need to introduce Santa to Rufus.
>>25645767>[x] “then let's go to Santa's! Hang on, lemme see if anyone else wants to come”
>>25645767[x] “then let's go to Santa's! Hang on, lemme see if anyone else wants to come”
 “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”
>>25645767> “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”I want to see Slider's face when she sees Rufus.And Goose come to think of it.
>>25645767> “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”Hope you like fish, if not we'll go get something instead.
>>25645767> “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”But first, introduce the good doggy to Goose.
>>25645767> "Then let's go to Santa's! Hang on, lemme see if anyone else wants to come."Be a nice send-off for Merlin, too. We did say she wasn't leaving until after Rufus got here, so she's still around. Also a chance to take the girls out.
>>25645767[X] “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”Squadmates, meet Joe; Joe, squadmates
>>25645767dinner with the twins, always an adventure. Desert is even better, angel food cake is always better with two layers and cream in the middle.capcha>expects healinngonna need it after that comment
>>25645767[X] “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”And everyone can spend time with Rufus.
>>25645866we could take Merlin out to Santa's when she gets back as a welcome home party!
>>25645767> “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”Hope Rufus likes fish.And Goose.
>Joe meets the twinsOnly good could come from that.
>>25645877Well played, although given their disposition wouldn't it be Devil's Food cake instead
>>25645767> “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”Everyone is entitled to a slobbering!WE WILL NOT SUFFER ALONE!
>>25645877It took me till this >>25645971 to figure out what that actually meant... I blame it on shit sleep.
>>25645971So, you take one of the twins in her bathing suit, lay her down on the floor, while the other is whipping up a bowl of whipped cream.When that's done take the bowl and start to pour it over the one on the floor, then you move over and start to la---
>>25646054LEWD POLICE, STOP RIGHT THERE, PUT YOUR HANDS UP AND BONER DOWN!

>>25646146think of England
>>25646162thinking of England makes me rise like a flagpole
>>25646162Nope, not working.
>>25646146Think of your granny nekkid.
>>25646185>>25646192it's an old saying...which, admittedly, I didn't use all that well
>>25646192Did those panties phase through her legs? Because that's the only way I can see them getting off without damage.Ghost Panties, woo woo
>>25646227I'll be in my bunk.
>>25645767Lewd desserts aside...>>[x] “no problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”Letting the resident citizens of /tg/ have a gander at the cousin sounds like a highly entertaining Idea.
>>25646245Back in the old days, with the first series of Merlin engines, strikers occasionaly backfired, this sometimes caused the pants the witches wore to catch fire, to avoid damage to their legs and other bits, they developed quick eject pants.While no longer used in aviation today because of developments in safety in both the mechanical and magic parts of the Merlin Jet engines, the quick eject pants remain a popular item as wear for the more adventurous ladies, witches and normals alike.
>>25646295S-s-say...y-y-you wouldn't know where I c-c-could...maybe...buy, uh, some of t-t-those. For my...for my...research purposes!
>>25646358they sell them on AmazonI'm not lying...
>>25645767>[X] “then let's go to Santa's! Hang on, lemme see if anyone else wants to come”
[x] “No problem, I think the twins cooked evening chow.”You nod, following Joe to the back of his pickup to get out the bag full of Rufus' stuff. Joe grabs his own pack as well. “No problem,” You say, hefting Rufus' 'bed'- a battered poncho liner that's seen far, far better days. “The twins cooked, I think. Hope you like seafood.” “Seafood's alright. They pretty good at it?” Joe asks, following you inside. Rufus trails behind, narrowly pulling his tail out of the door before you close it. You nod. “Solid enough. Mostly fish. Both of them aren't above experimenting with the food though, we had spam and seafood jambalaya one night.”Joe looks at you. “That doesn't sound real good.”You laugh. “It wasn't.”Rufus, meanwhile, has made his way into the living room. He pads up behind Goose, who freezes when he sniffs her, and you're about to yell when he curls up next to her, watching the TV. She looks down at him, then back at you.“I-is this...?” She asks, putting one hand tentatively oh his head and scratching gently behind his ears. You nod. “Yeah, that's Rufus. Don't worry, he's a big baby. If you want him to go away, tell him to go find Slider.”“Hey, wow. That's a big dog.” Alyssa says, walking in behind you from the kitchen. “Hey Goose, you think you could ride him? We can find a saddle” Her sister adds. Goose looks down at Rufus, who's got his head craned around, and is looking at the twins- whom, you can't help but note, are partially covered behind you and Joe. “M-maybe...” Goose answers, her voice unsure. “Anyway, dinner's ready. You too Frank and.... wait, who's this?” Alyssa says. “He's kinda cute. Frank, are you hiding the cute ones from us so we only have you to pick from?” “This is Joe. Joe, meet the twins.” “He's family. Behave, you two. Assuming you know what behave means.”
>>25646422> “He's family. Behave, you two. Assuming you know what behave means.”
>>25646422[X] “This is Joe. Joe, meet the twins.”I offer this sacrifice in the hopes of obtaining peace.

>>25646565they'll be using it for something else at this rate
>>25646539The life of a sharktwinfag is quiet and full of suffering.Katya is the best choice for fronk nonetheless from a practical standpoint. Twins shall be relegated to the stuff of dreams.
>>25646422 “This is Joe. Joe, meet the twins.”
>>25646593This is Joe AFTER meeting the twins.
>>25646422> “He's family. Behave, you two. Assuming you know what behave means.”Well, I'd like to at least make an effort to save Joe from the sharkpit...Whether or not he'll thank us for it is another matter entirely.
>>25646422>[X] “This is Joe. Joe, meet the twins
>>25646602joe getting tied up and stuffed in a box by the twins would be funny as hell.
 “This is Joe. Joe, meet the twins.” “He's family. Behave, you two. Assuming you know what behave means.”BOTH
>>25646630So...>"This is Joe. Joe, meet the Twins. Have fun, but if he says stop you stop"
>>25646539At first I was like what?Then I read the rest of the thread, and discovered something strange.
>>25646422> “He's family. Behave, you two. Assuming you know what behave means.”Family normally means not chucking him into the sharkpit.
>>25646652But lewd snarky fit shark girl pits are the best.
>>25646664Agreed, if I had a brother, I'd have him throw me in the lewd snarky fit shark girls pit
SHIT SON, TIME FOR WICHIZU!>>25646422> “He's family. Behave, you two. Assuming you know what behave means.”
>>25646682Plus this is the best way to demonstrate to him that witch relations are a tough thing to handle. And if he CAN satisfy them both? Well.. Pic related.
>>25646422>[X] “This is Joe. Joe, meet the twinsPoor boy will be torn apart.
>>25646682Son, let me tell you something. I do have a brother, and I would not throw him in the lewd snarky fit sharkgirls pit. I would jump in myself. And he could go fornicate himself.
>>25646711I don't think it's an issue of CAN he satisfy them...I think it's more "will he survive them satisfying themselves"
>>25646744His hypothetical brother could be gay.
>>25646757If my brother was hypothetically gay I STILL would not throw him in. He can get his own damn lewd snarky fit sharkgirls pit.
So I haven't been here in a while, who is for lewd and not for lewd? I know Merlin is not for lewd.
>>25646744>not high-fiving your brother as you both plow the girls from behind while they make out with each otherIt's like you don't even care about family.
>>25646789no no no,I not refering to your brother but his and he said he'd have his brother throw him in.
>>25646800Goose and Maverick are not for the lewd. Ice, Katya, and Slider are A-OK!
>>25646586>Katya is the best choice for fronk nonetheless from a practical standpoint.Does that mean we'll have an excuse later to 'accidentally' wind up listening to Korobeiniki with Katya in earshot?
>>25646800The crazy Russian has become off limits. She is too pure for us.
>>25646800Merlin is not for Lewd, I'd say Goose and Mav as well. Beyond that free range.
>>25646808I do care. I care about girls more.>>25646809Oh, misread that.>>25646817So we still haven't made a decision on that one yet?
>>25646817And Katsumi, if what Jessica thinks is in any way true.>>25646818No objections.
>>25646818I'm certain we could foster some multicultural relations.We turn it up to drown out joes screams.
can we get a count of throw/not throw
>>25646789Why jump in the pit of lewd shark-girls when you have a warm pussy-cat comforter, tight snake pants, or cozy(insert Ice familiar here). Why you can even go for a quiet night of hand holding with a certain magical plane-talker or evenNIXON'S ESCORT SERVICE! YOUNG PILOTS WITH LOTS OF STAMINA! ORDER NOW!
>>25646586More like the twins arrived too late to change the current outlook (which is Katya dominating, and Ice and Slider sort of fighting with each other.)Only way things could change is some big breakthrough and seeing how character development isn't Ghost's bestest suite, it's unlikely.
>>25646872"I'm not a crook!" Also, MERLIN NOT FOR LEWDS.
>>25646818Agreed. Then we can bang her silly while a captured Konstantina is forced to listen to her excited squeals.
>>25646818>>25646850>>25646860i don't get it
>>25646872"Hello this is Nix- Wait a minute konstantina, i recognize that number. We're still at war, so either defect or get you bosses to surrender and maybe- hello? hello?">Knock knock
>>25646872Personally I prefer the adorable cossack's granddaughter.>>25646901Its a russian love song.
>>25646872>>25646892Too late for anything with Merlin, she's taken. Though the fact anon leapt after hearing a certain offer of Katya implies some unflattering things.
>>25646924"how did she get here so fast!?"
>>25646975She ran, sir
>>25646947Merlin was never for lewd.Also, who the hell let our sweet little Merlin get a boyfriend? Why were we not present with a shotgun as a stand in father?
>>25646869Current count by my reckoning counting only posts with [X] or  because some people clearly don't have an x on their keyboard.>This is Joe. Joe meet the twins.15>He's family, behave ladies.12
>>25646901>>25646940More specifically, a Russian love song where the girl is named... Katya.It's also the Tetris theme.

>>25647049I will always vote for Slider.If it were an Election year, I would write her name on the ballot.
>>25647049You do know that Merlin is not for lewd is a long standing joke, yes? Also, Katya is best choice.
>>25647049at this point its more likely to become Ice AND Slider than that one side gives up...

>>25647216Well damn it, now I have that song stuck in my head. Who wants to turn merchant after this war with (Insert girl choice here)?
>>25646422>[X] “This is Joe. Joe, meet the twins.”
>>25647229There are worse things to be I guess.Like a lawyer.
>>25647229>Well damn it, now I have that song stuck in my head. Who wants to turn merchant after this war with all the girls?FTFY
>>25647252I am liking this choice more actually. But who would be our wise wolf?
>>25646422> “This is Joe. Joe, meet the twins.”> “He's family. Behave, you two. Assuming you know what behave means.”The alternative was to throw Goose to the sherktwans. And we're all out of Johnny Walker.
>>25647267Isn't Ice's familiar a wolf?
>>25647267Who ever has wolf familiar stuff, IDK?
>>25647252Merchant of DEATHSlider had frinds lined up in Afrika, after all.
>>25647267Well, characterization points to Ice, but her familiar is an arctic fox. Konstantina has the wolf familiar.
>>25647305Time to go head hunting. In the corporate sense.
>>25647298We area 88 now? or the air branch of Militares sans frontiers?
>>25647327"Slider some guy with an eye patch just came by with a work order. No I can't remember what his name was, but he had a bitchin robot arm and shrapnel coming out of his head."
>>25647359"And he was eating a snake."
>>25647370"And was asking a guy 'WHERE IS THE BOMB?'"
>>25647370"He mentioned something about the fundamentals of CQC, do you know what that means?"
>>25647387I think you win, sir.
>>25647387Sure, we could always take our familiar.
>>25647359"He tried to attatch the wins to some sort of balloon, but they convinced him they were a "later boos fight like ocelot". Still no idea what that means"
>>25647394He saw one of those large steel cogs we use in the Wyvern's landing gear, and just stared at it for two minutes.
[x] “This is Joe. Joe, meet the twins.”Part of you, you think, should feel bad for throwing your cousin to the sharks. The other part of you says the fucker owes you if he manages to get anywhere. You smile. “Twins, this is Joe.”“We have names ya know.” Alyssa says, sliding up to you. “Ya know, other than twins.”“Mhmm,” Clarissa says, mirroring her on Joe's side. “Fine. Joe, these are the twins, Lieutenant senior grade Alyssa Styles and Lieutenant senior grade Clarissa styles. Lieutenants, this is my cousin, Joe Knight.” You say with a small sigh. “Better?” “Much.” Alyssa says. “Chow's ready.”Joe, meanwhile, seems to be slightly tongue-tied. You're kinda worried for him- true, the twins are the worst of the lot, but if he's got trouble now... Of course, the fact that Clarissa is actually leading him- by the hand!- into the dining hall isn't helping much. Alyssa would be doing the same with you, but Ice chose that moment to come down the stairs, and one poisonous glare ended that plan. You're not actually sure you've seen either of the twins back down that fast, save for maybe when they went overboard trolling Slider. Ice, for her part, hardly even acknowledges your presence, giving you little more than a chilly nod. Slider, the next one down, doesn't appear to be in a much better mood- can't help but wonder what bad news landed on those two. Goose is followed into the chow hall by Rufus- you're actually kind of surprised he didn't wander off when he smelled the food. He pauses when he sees Slider.Slider stops dead in her tracks when she sees Rufus. “Frank who said you could- “ She's cut off when Rufus tackles her and starts licking her in the face. To be fair, you consider the phrase “Whargarble” fairly eloquent, everything considered.  “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!” “Rufus! Behave!” Other! (write in)
>>25647470> “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”Have some more slobber.
> Other! (write in)Start talking like Steve Irwin again.
>>25647470[X] “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”I figure we may as well get our shots in while we have a chance.
> “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”>>25647470Wait, what did we do to Ice?
>>25647470> “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”
>>25647470[X] “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”Just sit back and enjoy the show.
[x] Stack patty and slider, then lick
>>25647498On second thought, >>25647492 has the right idea

>>25647492Ooh crikey! Here we have the wild rufus, doing its matin dance on the common ice!
>>25647470>[x] “Rufus! Behave!”They don't seem like they are in good moods.
>>25647470>Rufus! Lick Ice! So we can stick Ice and Slider together!
>>25647470Guess I need to be the voice of reason here....[X] “Rufus! Behave!”
>>25647492"Crikey! Look ova here everyone, we have an honest to god bear-dog attacking the indigenous snake population! lets see what happens when I poke it with a stick!"
>>25647470 “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”
>>25647470> “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”They need to cheer up.
>>25647492Oh god, do it.
>>25647527Here, ignore that vote. We must >>25647492instead.
>>25647470[X] “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”

>>25647547We are 7 years too early for that.
>>25647470>[x] “Rufus! Behave!”
>>25647470Yeah lets do this: >>25647492
>>25647492There is no other option.
>>25647608didn't stop us before>>25647492Do it
>>25647470> “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”Rufus, be a good boy and slobber on her some more would you?
>>25647492CRIKEYThis so hard...then get Rufus off her after a bit
>>25647492This so much.

>>25647470>[X] “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”Best response, the steve irwin is a bit overboard.
>>25647654Then we're imitating a neckbeard australian accent.
>Ice and Slider seem to be in serious moods>Anon proceeds to act like a bunch of retarded chuckfucks.Welcome to /tg/ folks.
>>25647470> “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”You guys realise this is quite a bit before the Crocodile Hunter even started right?
>>25647662There is a time and a place for humor. Until someone gets mad, this is it.
>>25647669DIdn't stop us before.
>>25647669We did it in an earlier thread and had the same conversation.
>>25647662This is nothing: you want to see chucklefuck player faggotry, read Deculture's quest Magical Girl Noir Quest sometime.
>>25647470>[X] “Oh, hey Slider. Rufus is back!”Cry havok! and let slip the hounds of war.
>>25647680last time I checked, Frank isn't prone to being anywhere an ignorant jackass like Young is.I suppose this is what happens when the /ak/ part of /tg/ goes through SWQ withdrawal and/or summer occuring.
>>25647683>>25647690That doesn't stop it from being any less stupid.
>>25647662>/tg/>ever not chucklefucking
>>25647662Regardless, they're not gonna tell us over dinner while we have a non-military guest over. Might as well lighten the mood
>>25647709Read Ghost's filename for Slider from his post. I don't think she dislikes it as much as she tries to put on
>>25647709Its not being an ignorant jackass, its attempting to lighten the mood through humor. I mean shit, who wants to go through dinner in a bad mood?
>>25647745Oh lawdShe's tsundere for Rufus.
>>25647745That's not the point, Ice and Slider are in bad moods. Best not rock the boat.
>>25647756BARON DOOM-VAULT BRINGER OF DARKNESS AND PLANTER OF FLOOR LEGOS!
>>25647662We can be serious once Joe has gone and we can discuss things with full opreational security. Right now, the best we can do is try to liven things up a bit before we get back to work.
>>25647762Rocking the boat would be:>SOOO what's got you're magical panties in a twistnot>adorable doggy licking Sloider!
>>25647761THANK YOU FOR THE TERRIBLE MENTAL IMAGE.

>>25647776WE WILL SHOVE A ROCKET PROPELLED MERLIN WITH CAKE UP HIS ASS TO REDEEM HIM. IF HE CAN RESIST CAKE-MERLIN THEN HE IS EITHER DEAD OR THE DEVIL.
>>25647745I'll take it as Rufus approving of Slider, which now brings the count of family members approving of her to 2.
>>25647805Wait, Merlin Merlin, like the real one but holding cake, or Cake Merlin, a Merlin made of cake much like Paper-chan?
>>25647838Merlin that has fed upon Santa's cake. Bearing another cake. The aaaw will kill him or give him diabetes which will kill him slowly.
How about cake-Merlin eating Merlin-cake. Or vice versa. ...actually that's way too lewd.
>>25647847And you want to shove her up his ass?the real reason Ghost makes these threads is to watch us and laugh.
>>25647863I thought that was the reason like 85% of quest-runners did it
>>25647838> Cake Merlin, a Merlin made of cake much like Paper-chan?Oh no...Not again. And I can't find Paper-chan image, so here's this.
>>25647863Its an expression. I don't really want to shove her up his ass.Thats the only reason anyone EVER runs a quest or DMS
>>25647858Thats not lewd, that cannibalism/vore or attack on Merlin where cake is trying to break down the walls but it turns out the walls are full of cake and cake is people.
>>25647893>the cake is made of PEOPLEEEE
>>25647893Soylent Cake, or To Serve Cake?
>>25647893Depending on how you interpret 'eating' it's pretty damn lewd.
>>25647918Referencing attack on titan, It go ruined for me early on but I might watch it just for fun.
>>25647941I did get the reference, and I was just making reference's of my own.
>>25647941What if Fronk is a PLANE
>>25647941how long till attack on titan quest do you think?
>>25648022it's 2-cour, so I'd guess not until the series is over...at least
>>25648022Not until some with enough fortitude to kill every character comes along.
Did someone saytitans
>>25647881But what if Ice put cake on herself?
>>25648147I AM THE SEX WITH THE BEES AND THE EAGLES!
>>25648147the fact that this exists fills me with confusion
>>25648190I guess that would make her a Dairy Queen
>>25648225So Ice can make soft serve with her breasts?
>>25648331Never put that image in my head again.GHOOOOOOOOST.
>>25648400Need an Ice version. Someone commission deculture.
>>25648331throw in those little sprinkles they put on the ice cream and I am sold....god I want some DQ
[x] Other! (write in)“Crikey!” You exclaim, in your best worst Australian accent. “It's the legendary beah-dog! See how 'e attacks 'is prey? That slobbah, highly disgusting to yah common Slidah, and because she laughs so hard, she can't defend herself!” “Frank-” Slider says, between bouts of laughter. “If you don't get this dog offa me-”“Enough.” Ice says, not exactly in a tone of voice that warrants no argument. “Frank, get the dog off Rachel, please.”You shrug, moment over. “Rufus.” He pauses, looking up at you. You motion to the lounge area. “Go lay down.” He regards you for a minute, then, with what you can only think of as the dog equivalent of a shrug, he plants one more slobber-filled lick on Slider's face and wanders into the lounge, laying down in front of the TV. Dinner is Ahi tuna steaks, mostly. The twins have proven inventive before, but in this case, seem to be going for tried and true. Of course, with them, you should just be thankful it's not fish sticks and spam. That's happened before too. Joe ends up sitting next to you, with Merlin occupying her usual seat. Chow's pretty quiet, all told- Joe's not really functioning at full capacity, and the twins aren't helping, both of them doing their damnedest to silently flirt with him. Goose is the one who eventually gets something resembling conversation going. “When's Patty coming back, Miss Tabitha?” She asks, quietly. Ice shakes her head. “Two or three days, Goose. Sorry it was such short notice.”“It's ok.” Goose says, quietly. “I just don't have anything to really do. Patty always comes up with things. It's pretty different from the farm and I don't want to get lost.” “Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean.”  “Well, I did want to get some time in on some of the other airframes around here, want to fly with me?” Other! (write in!)
>>25648446>[x] “Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean.”
>>25648446Are we taildragger-certified? If so:> “Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean. I'll see if I can't convince the Colonel to let me take up one of his old warbirds too"If not:> “Well, I did want to get some time in on some of the other airframes around here, want to fly with me?”
>>25648446>[x]"Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean."Mayhaps Goose is a Martian War buff?
>>25648446>[x]“Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean.”
>>25648446[X] “Well, I did want to get some time in on some of the other airframes around here, want to fly with me?”Let's get Goose away from strikers and let her just enjoy the flying part.
>>25648409But i did...
>>25648446> Other! (write in!)"So, Goose, how's Maverick?"
>>25648446>[x]"Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean."
>>25648446 “Well, I did want to get some time in on some of the other airframes around here, want to fly with me?”We still need to figure out what had Slider and Ice were in not so great moods when they came down.
>>25648508Patty IS Maverick. I think the last thing we want her to do is think about how she's not here because her grandmother died
>>25647492It's Aussie time!
>>25648446> “Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean.”We're gonna need to talk with Ice after this,What the hell is going on.
>>25648518>figure out what had Slider and Ice were in not so great moodsYes, right after dinner.>>25648508Really? Right now she is at a funeral, probably a bit upset.
>>25648446[x] “Well, I did want to get some time in on some of the other airframes around here, want to fly with me?”[x] Other! (write in!)Figure out what's got Slider and Ice worked up. In private, if need be.
>>25648446> “Well, I did want to get some time in on some of the other airframes around here, want to fly with me?”
>>25648571This too, but after dinner. Don't wanna worry Goose or Merlin/give away intel to Joe
>>25648446[X] “Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean.” Quality time with other little-sister-Witch GO!!
I missed the last couple sessions, and I just wanted to say to Ghost, thanks for putting the CAF in the quest. They are extremely relevant to my interests, and I am ashamed to say that I had never heard of them before.>>25648446>[x] “Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean.”"This is a CAF Witch. If found lost or unconscious, please hide her from Yankees, revive with mint julep and assist her in returning to friendly territory. CONFEDERATE AIR FORCE"
>>25648571Editing my post, after dinner, of course. No sense in getting the others worried if they aren't.>dntatest affectionoh you, Captcha
>>25648446> "Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean."And yeah, after dinner and in private, we should talk to Ice and/or Slider. See what's up.
>>25648480>Are we taildragger-certified?If we aren't we should rectify that.
>>25648446>[x] “Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean.”Let's try this and see what happens.
>>25648446>[x]Come fly with me
>>25648862You sonofabitch. You just made me remember horrid memories best left forgotten.
>>25648691I agree, but it wouldn't matter if we found a P-61 in the Colonel's collection
So many votes for WW2 Strikers, we must get Goose some quick eject pants if her interest in WW2 strikers grows, I know my interest is growing. >>25646295
So, what do we think has Ice's panties in a twist? Paperwork? Squadron shenanigans? Feelings for Fronk? Striker Sickness? That time of the month? Its actually irrelevant, because the cure is that old whiskey we have. Had.
>>25649249Call Merlin. We need to stock up on whiskey. If it ain't Glengarry's finest, we'll settle for some JOHNNIE WALKER
>>25649297Merl hasn't left yet.
>>25649249I think it's something else that Frank's blissfully ignorant of until it's likely too late to really do anything about it.
>>25649249I have a theory, and you may not like it. Remember how there were talks about sidelining Merlin and Fronk? There may be more clout behind that than we thought.
>>25649349Regardless, a happy CO means a happy squad. And the cure is MORE DAKKA that whiskey the colonel gave us.
>>25649249More likely that shit is going down. Again.
>>25649373>>25649370So we might have to go SW Merc Quest, and be like JAGER STURMFUHRER?
>>25648206it's a thing
>>25649370If so, we'll, TIME FOR PR DISASTERS!
>>25649418I'd be all for that, but no. We're tied to our squadron, those that depend on us, the Navy in general, and all the red tape in the world that all of the above provides. We have to soldier on, for better or worse. If some serious shit goes down, then maybe going merc will become a good idea.
>>25649449Does this mean we get to buzz the tower?>>25649459Remember what we told Ice? She leaves, we leave. And I'd like to think most of the squad would too.
>>25649480True. But in practicality this could cause quite a disaster. It'd have to be for a damned good reason as to why some of the most vetted Navy forces suddenly decided to up and leave. Doubt we'd have it easy just saying, "Nope," and departing, too.
>>25649581It'd be for a damn good reason. We aren't getting sidelined for some political bullshit, and we aren't leaving Ice on her own if she quits. If the Navy has a problem with that then they can go fuck themselves.
>>25649581The Navy would be the worst off. Private sector would LOVE to get its mitts on Frank. Same for the others.
>>25649715>>25649693;_; You guys make me proud. So be it. If the world wants us dead... We'll just have to create our own paradise.
>>25649793Fronk is a man of pride, he makes his path through the world with his own two hands. And if anything or anyone stands in his way, well, I feel sorry for their next of kin.
>>25649809>>25649826So we are in agreement.>widow minedriShut up, Captcha.
[x] “Hey Goose, how do you feel about War era strikers? Piston engine stuff, I mean.” “Hmm. Hey Goose, how do you feel about war era stuff? The piston engine strikers, I mean.” You ask, leaning back. She hesitates. “I... I'm not sure. I've never tried flying those.” She says. “Hmm. Well, do you want to try?” You offer. She hesitates again. “I... I don't know.”“Still worried about how the wyvern strikers treated you?” Ice asks, softly. Goose nods. Rosalie smiles and jumps in. “Piston strikers are much more gentle, goose. I can show you, if Frank's friend will let me.”You shrug. “He probably won't have a problem with it at all. He's been after a witch or two to help out with some old strikers they got, old spitfires, I think it was. Want me to give him a call?” Goose nods. “Ask him if he would like me to come along as well.” Rosalie says. ++ gotta cut it here tonight, guys. something in the medical column came up. Sorry. Hope y'all enjoyed the truncated run.
Gentlemen, I have our theme song.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9FImc2LOr8
>>25649939GHOST I LOVE YOU.
>>25649939G'night, Ghost. Enjoyed it for sure; lots to superstition about. Hope everything's okay.
>>25649939Seeya ghost.Please stop coughing up blood.
>>25649939>Rosalie and Goose.
>>25649995>Taking two Witches for some show-time, all the while sidelining our various waifus who will no doubt be watching with utter furyMy body is ready.
>>25650071They'll understand and appreciate us more.
>>25649939Thanks Ghost, hope things work out.
>>25650102Will they? Or will they tie us down when we sleep and recite a mantra of "Ours forever," over and over as the world burns?
>>25650165Well as long as the girls work together I'm fine with it. All 5 of them.
>>25649939Please dont die ghost!
>>25650184Don't think Ghost'll do a harem route for us, man. Pretty sure he's against it, as much as I hate to admit it.
>>25650240He is against harem route, which is kinda hilarious seeing as he hates the waifu wars, and going harem route would get rid of all that
>>25650240I'm sure the creators of strike witches never intended to show glorious male pilot as a romance choice and potential rival to witches, yet here it is. Just dream with me anon, and if that doesn't work hopefully someone will write about it.
>>25650240It's a reality but some foolish sorts are too stupid to realize it.
/r/ Ghost Diva image for reasons
>>25650306>>25650276Heh. That or he enjoys the fighting and frustration it causes. I would.>>25650282Indeed! Perhaps once the writers' kit comes out we'll all do some OC.
>>25650338>Heh. That or he enjoys the fighting and frustration it causes. I would.he has said several times he does not enjoy it, I don't know why he keeps enabling it honestly...
>>25650414He is tsundere for our arguing. Alternatively he legitimately does not understand waifuing. Truly we do not deserve him.
>>25650414maybe hes acting reluctant so that if it happens nobody will give him (too much) grief.
>>25650444>>25650449having talked to him on IRC about it, it honestly seems like he is trying to avoid any 'battle' between the waifus, but in doing so, it just postponing the inevitable and letting it fester.he should just get it out of the way as soon as possible so he can continue with all aspects of the story, instead of continuously trying to dodge the issue
>>25650507Honestly, the waifuing has been pretty civil here compared to other quests.He might be able to get away with just UST.
>>25650507In defense of Ghost, we should be able to accommodate him by keeping it to a minimum and not hold up threads to keep things expedient.
>>25650536its been civil because any character development involving a 'potential' waifu has stagnated completely and people have lost interest or forgotten about it
>>25650565I HAVEN'T FORGOT FRANKS TRUE TRUE OTPNIXON'S PILOT ESCORTS! WHERE THE ESCORT FLIES TO YOU!!
>>25650550or he could get it out of the way, and we would only have 1 thread full of arguing and then continue with the story, instead of having arguments whenever a potential waifu has screen time because the chilluns can't recognise when it is a good time to have those discussions
>>25650565Partially this and partially that things are heavily in Katya's favor at the moment.As it is, both Slider and Ice camps aren't much of a threat but should there be some development that tips things, the fans will unite behind her and then the stage will be set for the true battle.
>>25650630>the stage will be set for the true battle.I cannot understand why Ghost would set things up for that, is he a masochist?I mean, all it is going to do is detract from the quests quality and hold up the story until its gotten out of the way
You know, I'm kind of wondering when Ramwitch is going to show up.Ghost said that we could eventually meet her later.
>>25650625>>25650630>>25650663You three seem to be uniting. Because I am self-destructive and an embodiment of our collective hivemind, I will have to say that I do not like this. Let's just bury the hatchet and get on with things: LIKE WHAT'S GOT SLIDER AND ICE SPOOKED. Come on. Suspicions?
>>25650663Because I doubt he knows better but at the same time Ghost isn't that well known for character development, preferring to pull Russian attacks out of nowhere or some other hijinks. This also hurts the state of the waifu matter as if Katya actually got character development, she might actually win over the other fans or actually resolve things WITHOUT a waifuwar.>>25650696yeah..... when Goose and Maverick get page time every thread.>>25650704Not enough clue really.
>>25650729>Because I doubt he knows better but at the same time Ghost isn't that well known for character development, preferring to pull Russian attacks out of nowhere or some other hijinks. This also hurts the state of the waifu matter as if Katya actually got character development, she might actually win over the other fans or actually resolve things WITHOUT a waifuwar.Pretty much this, and what annoys me most is that Ghost just sends her off screen for an indefinite amount of time when things get close to actually going somewhere. All he is doing is stalling the war, and making sure it will shit up the quest so much more when it happens.
>>25650844It's been a flaw for a while with something ALWAYS FUCKING COMING UP as soon as we make remotely decent headway getting to know a girl.
>>25650890I just wish he would get it out of the way so we could get on with things because this constant stalling of characters development has stagnated this quest and its starting to lose is lustre
>>25650931The "Oh no attack right now!" is a bit of a cliche but I honestly don't mind it. I mean, SWQ went friggin' nuts once it became 85% castle shenanigans and 15% combat. Not that I minded too much, but there is a balance somewhere in between
>>25651070I don't mind it when its used well, constantly using it to ward off any character development is not using it well...
>>25650931Yeah I can't say I'm as excited as I used to be as most threads are painfully predictable-Katya taking up threads-Sharkgirls stealing attention from others-Russian attacks basically blocking character development-Maverick and Goose hardly getting any screen time (Rosalie is a lesser example)>>25651070Being used well is one thing but not when it seems to exist just to block off anything else going on.That and SWQ was at its best when it's balanced between combat, hijinks and character progression.
>>25651090I don't think it's been used too poorly, just overused. Like...we ARE a combat unit. It's expected that we'd be scrambling on a semi-regular basis...not like Konstantina and the reds are gonna give us a break to know our squadron better. When we're out of combat (Top Gun and...now let's see how long that lasts) we actually get to spend some time with the squadron
>>25651180I agree with everything except>-Katya taking up threadsKind of hard for her to do that when she has ceased to exist for the last bunch of threads
>>25651265I was referring to BEFORE her bus trip.
>>25651180>>25651090As an example, I just went through the archives right quick. We haven't been in combat (and therefore haven't had the "opportunity" to get Russian-bounced) in 10 numbered threads (not including .5s and JessQuest). Long story short, in my personal opinion it's a minor problem.Also, to SOME degree the character screen time has been decided by player actions. IIRC there have been opportunities to talk to Rosalie/Mav/Goose, but we haven't really taken them (and I think Ghost lightly chided us for that a thread or two ago when he talked about how we're "not as close" as we once were with Mav.
>>25651364I wonder why (coughkatyafanscough), though the very early parts and the over Merlin focus, I do take my share of responsibility for that.
