Time for some late night VMQ!Archive (1 and 2): http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/6K5rjbC1Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandDon't know what Valkyria Chronicles is? Check it out here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyria_Chronicles or http://valkyria.wikia.com/wiki/Valkyria_WikiYou are LUCAS WILLIAMS, a student in the Sturmfuhrer Academy and currently enrolled in its elite TIER ONE Program. You've already got your little squad together and ready, but you've run into a bit of a problem. This "teambuilding" exercise you're currently on is less "teambuilding" and more "oh god everybody is out to get you". More specifically, your teachers probably found it amusing to make everybody gang up on what was presumably the most powerful team. Yours.Thankfully, you not only succeeded, but you soundly trounced the other teams thanks to a combination skill, guts and sheer dumb luck.You also found out that your squad sniper, Morgan, is actually a girl posing as a boy, for reasons still unstated. However, you agreed to keep the whole thing a secret from the rest of the your squad.You also found out in the middle of your training that you had a hidden dark side, a destructive bloodlust that triggers whenever you see someone you care about get hurt. Thankfully, you've been taking special training to suppress that urge, so it really shouldn't be a problem in the foreseeable future.You've now graduated from Tier One, and now are an official part of the Demons of Randgriz. Not only does this meant that your school days are over, but also that you're now expected to fight when called on...(cont)
At last!Also, remember what I said about the writefaggotry being ready by tonight? Yeah, I was wrong. Tomorrow, though! It's about Williams and Heloise!
>>27095145READY TO ROOOOOLL OUT
Sleep is for the weak.
I still can't believe what just happened yesterday with those double 1's...
>>27095145You sigh as you pack up the last of your belongings and take one last look at your dorm. It's been your home for the past five years, and now you're just going to be leaving it behind. Sure, you were merely moving to the barracks at the main Demons of Randgriz compound adjacent to the academy, but it still felt like you were leaving home."Bye..." You say to nobody or nothing in particular as you close the door. You wonder who will take residence in this room after you leave.You load your gear into the waiting truck. As you look back, you see Morgan, Runaround, and Edwin coming out with their gear as well.Now that you think about it, Lara and the other girls are probably moving out of their respective dorms as well.>Head straight to the barracks. You really should make sure your stuff gets there safe.>You got a bit of time. Go meet someone. [specify]>Other

Hey Command, What age are we right now, anyways?
>>27095500Yeah, how old is everyone?
>>27095350>You got a bit of time. Go meet Morgan.>>27095239Will there be lewds? Will Heloise and Williams finally hold hands?
>>27095514>>27095500Everybody besides Simo and Bragg are 18. Simo and Bragg are roughly 1 year older.
>>27095548Are they still pissed at us?
>>27095548So you're saying that I might actually get an excuse to post this other than just wanting to?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Urtiyp-G6jY
>>27095559I don't think Simo is ever going to live that moment down.
>>27095537Sugar fueled sexytimes.
>>27095580Live down what?
>>27095613Read the previous thread when we rolled double 1's.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27071561/
>>27095350>You got a bit of time. Go meet someone. [specify]Falynn or John
>>27095626That was epic. Also an epic fail.
>>27095350>You got a bit of time. Go meet someone. [Lara]Little sis route is a go.
>>27095651It was proof that we ain't playing Jager anymore. Lucas can't hold his liquor for SHIT.
>>27095626REMINDER TO EVERYONE: LUCAS CANNOT HOLD HIS LIQUOR!!!!
>>27095668>Lucas can't hold his liquor for SHIT.Yet.He's Tier 1, he shall learn to hold his booze.
>>27095681I expect everyone and their dog to attempt to slip liquor into Lucas' drinks.
Didn't we roll like 2 20s in a row during Jager's drinking contest with Sam? Lucas can't be the protag with a liver that weak.
>>27095350>>You got a bit of time. Go meet someone. [LUCINA] throwing my hat in for this.
>>27095705I'm not sure if we can when we promised Morgan that we wouldn't do something like that again.
>>27095713If it was me, I would be pretty damn wary of the drink after a blunder like that.
>>27095735We rolled I swear to god like 3 20s in a row normally. That was the average.
>>27095735Jager =/= Lucas
>>27095771Indeed, it'd be really disappointing if we ended up as a carbon copy.
>>27095765That's because of the (Valkyrian?) blood flowing through his veins that allowed him to drink everyone under the table.
>>27095350You decide to go look for Lucina to see how she's adjusting to the change. You feel that she wouldn't think it's such a big deal, considering her dorm was always pretty bare. Her interior design philosophy was pretty similar to her usual mindset, which was keep bare essentials and nothing else. Sure enough, you see Lucina walking out of the girls' dorms with only a single duffel. The girl was definitely efficient, if nothing else."Oh Lucas, you're done packing already?" Lucina blinks.>What do you say?
>>27095806I guess the best way to make sure Lucas doesn't end up as a copy of Jager is to put him in situations worse than what Jager went through during the first quest. (i.e. WP weapons, fighting Valkyria, etc.)
>>27095856Greet her... and maybe talk about elaborate on what you thought of her yesterday after the shopping
>>27095806Yeah. So far Lucas seems more "MAI HONUR!!" and much less "In this guys face!!"
>>27095936Don't worry, I think he'll worry less about his honor when he has a job to do, and last thread taught all of us that just because it was a non-combat situation, Dice Rolls do affect things seriously even if nobody dies.
>>27095856"Any idea where we're going to be going after this? We're getting deployed, right?"
>>27095856Apologise for abandoning her to the clothing wolves.
>>27095856Hey. I just wanted to check in to see how you were doing.
>>27095856Please don't tell anyone about me in that maid uniform.
>>27095996Of course, we need to make sure they don't know it's us that cleans the camp.
>>27095963Hard to say really. I kind of think he would do his job because his honor says he has too. Which could make him a fairly terrifying a foe to face. Morale? He doesn't have one and he won't stop coming and working until he wins. Course this is all just from how he acts so far.
>>27095963Right. Like we are now locked on Morgan and beginning to develop a taste for wearing dresses (a couple more critfailed social rolls should do it).
>>27096111I guess this is because there is mystery surrounding Morgan, while the rest of the back-stories are more straightforward.
>>27096111I don't think we're locked on any route, we still got the entire game to play. It's just that Morgan had the most interesting subplot so far.
>>27096196If she pulls the ruined for marriage card, Lucas will have no choice but to commit. lol
>>27095996Don't remind her about it. That secret goes with us to the grave.
What we do know about Morgan:1. She's a girl2. Likes Tanks and Military Equipment3. May originate from the Empire (?)
>>270962364. May or may not be a Valkyria.
>>270962364. Ought to try makeup to look cuter5. Bad experiences with men in the past6. Doesn't mind hand holding
>>27096154Hey, I was hoping for our blue haired, slightly awkward and brokenly strong childhood friend, but I think once you factor in the drunken kiss we've shown too much interest in Morgan to back out without taking a chance on her and watching it crash and burn. Also, we get to create an oddly effeminate fake personality while pursuing her to throw off any suspicion that we might be after a girl in disguise.
>>27095856"Hey, Lucina, I just wanted to say I'm kinda sorry about leaving you out to the wolves during the grad trip." You say apologetically. "I know you're not exactly comfortable doing all that 'girly' stuff.""Well. I guess I sort of deserved it for letting the twins have their way with you." Lucina sighs. "But honestly, it... actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be..."You then see Lucina look away for a second and her cheeks reddening just a tad. >Ohoho, I wonder what the twins would think if they heard you say that...>So uh.... what exactly did you think about that whole crossdressing thing...?>Other
>>27096274>>Ohoho, I wonder what the twins would think if they heard you say that...>>So uh.... what exactly did you think about that whole crossdressing thing...?
>>27096253Apparently, Valkyrian Powers only activate after near-death experiences. So until she gets close to death her powers won't activate (Unless she was close to death once before coming to Gallia)
>>27096196>Morgan had the most interesting subplot so far.>most interesting?Morgan? Not Uncle Vinnie's niece?
>>27096274>>So uh.... what exactly did you think about that whole crossdressing thing...?
>>27096274>...so uh...Come on guys. We have to keep up appearance if we want to keep Morgan's gender under wraps.
>>27096307Sparky has an interesting background, but she tells us what happened. Morgan's background is only told in small excerpts and hints. Our collective minds pull out theories for those scraps of info and make our own backstory to compare to others.
>>27096274"Is there something you are embarrassed about?I had one of the worst nights of my life. Found out I can't hold my liquor, and I humiliated myself and Morgan in front of the entire team. Not sure how I'm going to be able to stand in front of the team anytime soon.
>>27096274>Other"You okay Lucina, your face is getting red are you sick?"We are naive knight!
>>27096353You say that, but just wait until Uncle Vinny shows up.
>>27096367Oh god, do it.
>>27096274>Stay silent.Don't give her any reasons to use last night's dress up for blackmail.
>>27096367And then put our forehead to hers to check her temperature.
>>27096367Heh heh, nice
>>27096403Oh god, are you getting worse. Quick, grab my hand, we need to get you to the nurse!
>>27096353The interest in Morgan is about her past, about how her life went wrong. The interest in Sparky is what's she's doing right now, in the moment.
So besides our LMG and pistol, should Lucas have a personal defense weapon like a compact shotgun or an SMG?
>>27096449Eh, I think Sparky has plenty of interesting stories to share.
>>27096353Plus, the ways we've been discovering those hints have often forced Lucas into very sensitive situations. They have been quite entertaining, and I think that they are often the driving force behind a lot of development, not just in Lucas and Morgan, but their relationships with the rest of the team as well. I can't see Simo looking at Lucas the same way after the incident.
>>27096428>grab my handYou want to ERP do it in the appropriate thread asshole!
>>27096457>using a peashooting in lieu of our MACHINE GUN
>>27096367>Lucina embarrassed and showing emotion.>Does not compute>Engage naivety
>>27096285Yeah, I'll second this.
I just hope Lucas doesn't become as dense as Shirou.
>>27096367oh god this. Including putting our forehead to hers
>>27096274"Hey Lucina, are you okay? Your face is getting kinda red." You say a bit worriedly. "...huh? I'm fine!" Lucina stammers.Oh no, you weren't falling for that again. You know that Lucina never liked admitting weakness, and it was not uncommon for her to hide illnesses or injuries. Whether it was because of pride or because she was just that secretive, you weren't sure, but you've made it your duty to knock some sense in her whenever she tried to pull that stunt. You still remember the time she tried to go to PE with a broken arm, after all."Come on, Lucina, come here." You say, taking Lucina's forehead and pressing it against your own to check for fever.>roll 1d20
>>27096564"This is totally not a kiss!"The twins break in the room with convenient timing!
>>27096449(Semi-Drunken Rambling)Hell, maybe Morgan is a freakin' Imperial Princess next in line on the god damn Imperial Throne of the whole damn Empire.Maybe she's a Valkyria who reacts to Sparky's special Ragnite chunk and turns into a single-shot one-hit KO unit for one thread at a time.
>>27096604Oh GOD DAMN IT
>>27096604accidental harem go?
>>27096604yes! 20! But what did we crit on? Lucina going tsundere?
>>27096604Lucas is so dense it rolls back around and actually becomes swag
>>27096629I thought Lucina was more kuudere than anything.
>>27096629Her forehead spontaneously combusts.
>>27096661"Your temperature is rising, face is becoming flushed, heartbeat is increasing, pupils become dilated. Lucina, did you like the dress so much you spent your entire pay on it?
Lucas nat 20s only when the girls are concerned.
>>27096736Or nat 1s when going gay for Morgan.
>>27096601(cont'd)Maybe she's Kilroy.She could even be Clementia Forster's new project.
>>27096629She suppresses an instinctive punch and tells us that we looked too cute as a maid~
>>27096766Crap, did anyone but Simo and Bragg, see us kiss Morgan or were they too drunk to realize what happened?
>>27096766In all fairness, the fact that she kind of looks like a guy makes it easier for us to let our guard down.
>>27096797Edwin was gone, Roundabout was busy playing a stig.Not sure about the pilots. Maybe Fleur
>>27096797Doesn't matter. It'll get out (along with our apology/punishment) soon enough. That second 1 means Lara saw the whole thing.
>>27096766Could certainly use some 20s on that front :(
>>27096847Nah, that was one of the best nights I ever had, a cascade disaster!
>>27096489Ever tried to swing a GPMG around in close quarters? It's not easy.However, from a practical standpoint, our pistol should do fine. This isn't a multiplayer fps where all the other players have regenerating health and can survive being shot in the throat just because your pistol only does a little bit of damage.>>27096590>Whether it was because of pride or because she was just that secretive, you weren't sureREAL MEN HIDE THEIR FEELINGS! Why? BECAUSE IT'S NONE OF YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS!
>>27096590"Jeez, Lucina, you're burning up!" You blink, finally your head away from Lucina's. "Are you sure you're okay?""It's not a fever!" Lucina insists. "It's just... well...""Well...?" You cock your head curiously. "IlikeditwhenyousawmeinthedresssoIboughtit." Lucina mutters quickly and quietly."Wait, what?" You blink.Lucina's eyes dart from side to side and she zips open her duffel bag to reveal the same white dress she had been wearing in the store, neatly folded and packed into a protective plastic bag."I... bought it when nobody was looking." She continues. "Don't tell the others please... I don't want them thinking less of me...">Sure, it's our secret.>I don't think it makes you weak at all.>Other
>>27096891Luckily we somewhat salvaged it.
>>27096901>Sure, it's our secret.>I don't think it makes you weak at all."well...uh...at least you're feeling okay!"
>>27096901>Sure, it's our secret.but>I don't think it makes you weak at all.
>>27096901>I don't think it makes you weak at all. But yeah, I can keep it a secret if that's what you want.
>>27096901>Sure, it's our secret.
>>27096901>>Sure, it's our secret.But you know Lucina, >>I don't think it makes you weak at all.In fact i think it makes you look really lovely.
>>27096901>>I don't think it makes you weak at all.
>>27096901>>Sure, it's our secret.But between the two of us>>I don't think it makes you weak at all.
>>27096901>Sure, it's our secret.She looks plenty weak in it. She can't eve hide knives or grenades with modifying it.
>>27096901>Sure, it's out secret.>But Lucina, I don't think it makes you weak at all.
>>27096947>implying she needs those to break you in two>implying you wouldn't enjoy being broken
>>27096940>>27096937Seconding these. Bitches Love Lucas.
>>27096937Do it, yes.Both + Compliments
>>27096901>>27096937 this one is good
NOTE TO EVERYONE: PLEASE DO NOT MAKE LUCAS DRINK IN ORDER TO KEEP OUR FRIEND'S SECRETS, OR ELSE...
>>27096947"What are you talking about? There are two perfect places to hide grenades!
>>27096999THIS ACTUALLY MEANS THE REVERSE, WHERE ALL OF OUR FRIENDS PRESSURE US TO DRINK!ALSO> ALL CAPS!
>>27096999If it means he keeps crossdressing.I want to see Lucas pull this off.
>>27096901Also, where does this pic of Lucina come from? I'm not that far into the game, so is it further into the game or the MU needs a S rank relationship with Lucina?
>>27097056Maybe those crossdressing skills will come in handy when deep striking behind enemy lines.
>>27097045Next thing you know, we have everyone's secrets.
>>27097119I'm sure Liz may have a few custom fitted meidofuku with all kind of hidden pocket and weapon holster in her collection...
>>27097056Isn't that incredibly dangerous? She won't be able to get clear fast enough.
>>27097139it's a good thing everyone was blackout drunk so no one remembers the revelations!and only some of them were pretending to be blackout drunk
>>27097081AFAIK it's fanart or from an artbook or something. It's not in the game.>>27096901"Okay, it's our secret then, Lucina." You nod. "But you know, I don't think it makes you weak at all. In fact, I didn't have the chance to say it before, but I think you look really lovely in it."Lucina's face goes instantly red again and you get the feeling it's not because it's a fever. You're about to ask if she's okay when you're suddenly interrupted by Simo."Hey! Lovebirds! We've got no time to cuddle!" You hear him yell. "Once you get your gear squared away, report to Briefing Room 3 ASAP!""Well, see you then, Lucas." Lucina nods as she heads off.You're about to follow her when you are suddenly stopped by Simo, who just glowers at you."Okay, now that you're sober, we're going to have a proper chat, now." He narrows his eyes. "What exactly is your relationship with Morgan?">Lie>Tell the truth.>Turn the question around on him.>Other
>>27097202>Tell the truth.>Turn the question around on him."I'll tell you sir, but allow me to ask the same of you as well"
>>27097202>>Tell the truth.
>>27097202>>Tell the truth.there is not much of one, we know about her secret but we're just friends
>>27097202>>OtherWe're just friends.
>>27097202>Refuse to answer>Turn the question around on him.Morgan said NO ONE MUST KNOW.Follow the knight's code.
>>27097202>Tell the truth.
>>27097202>Tell the truth"Damned if I know. Apparently sobriety is a condition of surpressing the stupid berserker not thinking impulsivity."
>>27097202>LieLie through your teeth. Make homosexual implications.
>>27097202>LieThat we're just close comrades.>Turn the question around on him.Swore an oath. Not matter what shit befalls Lucas, he will not betray that oath unless Morgan okays it.
>>27097241Let's not go the Honor Before Reason route please.
>>27097202"We're just friends. Let me ask you the same question."
Maybe Simo won't send us off to be interrogated by Elizabeth.
>>27097254Go with bisexual instead of homosexual. I did just walk in on us flirting with Lucina so we might want this to be somewhat believable.
>>27097202>Turn the question around on him.
>>27097202My vote goes for anything that doesn't involve telling Simo the truth.>>27097264You wanna be the chinese cartoons protagonist, you'd better play the part.
>>27097241>>27097260Either works.As long as we don't spill the beans.
>>27097202>Tell the truth.For the truth is most... truthful. Wow, I can't think of anything witty to say today.
>>27097202>Tell the truth.Simo is not a moron, and he's pretty much going to kick our ass when we try to weasel out of it.
>>27097202Go with >>27097260 please
>>27097293Same here, don't reveal any secrets, but don't put too much attention to the secret.
Knights do not lie.
>>27097260What he said.
>>27097260I'll change my vote:>>27097279to support this.
>>27097202You seriously consider telling Simo the truth about your knowledge of Morgan's true gender. Lying to your superior officer isn't exactly something you like doing, but you made a promise to Morgan and you're going to keep it no matter what.However, rather than outright lie, you try to deflect Simo's attention by reversing the line of questioning."Well, sir, I'm not going to tell until you tell me what your relationship with Morgan is. You two seem awfully close for students who supposedly never met." You retort.Simo gives you a hard stare.>roll 1d20
>>27097375unless sworn by an oath to do so.
Rolled 4>>27097383oh boy
Rolled 6>>27097383I have a bad feeling about this.
>>27097396... You're shitting me.There go our chances with Morgan. It's all over. :(
>>27097395You were right.
Rolled 17>>27097388>>27097395>>27097396We died fulfilling our oath
>>27097412>>27097416That it, no more rolling for me today.
>>27097411No, Simo is going to see through this attempt to deflect the question, and ask us again what our relationship with Morgan is. Which we tell the truth "We are just friends", which is true
>>27097411Eh, so we get drummed out of the unit. We can make new friends wherever we end up, right?
>>27097446well I got the 20 today and part of the double 1 yesterday, so it's evening out.
>>27097452Nah, I don't think it's going out that far. Maybe a harsh dressing down, or maybe demoted from command?
It's not that knights don't lie due to honor, they just are terrible liars.
>>27097478We're Demons now, low-ranking ones, but at least we deserve to know some info about Morgan.
>>27097388>>27097395>>27097396This is what happens when a knight tries to lie I guess...and after such promise with Lucina!
>>27097395"Nice try, Lucas, but you of all people should know anybody who took Mrs. Parker's Interrogation course can see through that 'reverse questioning' BS." Simo says simply. "Now answer the question.">Just say you're friends. >Tell him you know Morgan is a girl.>Other
>>27097478Worse.Simo's her brother.

>>27097512>>Just say you're friends.
>>27097513oh god, it fits, Simo got the genes from Elsa and Morgan got the genes from Alek
>>27097512>>Just say you're friends.It's true.
>>27097512>Just say you're friends.This is the truth, just withholding information.
>>27097512>Just say you're friends.We aren't lying and we're not breaking Morgan's trust either
>>27097512>Just say you're friends.
>>27097539A. We don't know this for sureB. We promised not to tellC. He didn't ask the specific question about Morgan's gender, so we don't have to bring it up
>>27097512>>Just say you're friends
>>27097512>>Just say you're friends.Hell just say all it was was being so godly wasted we didn't even know who we where kissing.
>>27097512>We're just friends>>We Vowed!<<
>>27097512>Just say you're friends.It's the truth.
>>27097545Or maybe, it would be like a Solid-Liquid relationship like in MGS1.
>>27097591Gather ye round, children, and I'll tell you a tale of soldiers, conspiracies, and a total disregard for the principles of Mendelian genetics.

>>27097591>>27097642I would like to think Lucina has a younger sister that inherits the worse traits of their parents and a in between sibling that's the best balance of both.
>>27097512"Me and Morgan are just friends. Nothing more and nothing less. What happened during the trip was just a bad reaction to the alcohol." You say simply. It was definitely the truth, just not the whole truth. You hope Simo isn't sharp enough to catch it, though.>roll 1d20

>>2709775110 is fine
Fuckin dice what the hell?!?!?At least these aren't combat situations...OH GOD
>>27097769Heh, wait for his reaction.
>>27097718Do you remember VMQ1, where we'd get pretty slick rolls on a regular basis? I guess that just ain't happening anymore. Ah well, 10 isn't terrible.
>>27097789Jager was a fucking man, Lucas is just a little boy. The rolls reflect that.
Rolled 1>>27097807Give him a year or two.The girls will make a man out of him
>>27097680I love Metal Gear, but I gotta agree with Mantis on this, the whole thing with the nature of Solid, Liquid, and Solidus makes NO sense.
>>27097751>>27097812dammit, even the uncalled for rolls suck ass
>>27097812The dice take my side.
>>27097751Yea, Lucas doesn't seem to have the non-combat/knight punching roll luck that Jager did.E STATUS LUCK
>>27097700Simo just glares at you long and hard. He's obviously not fully convinced."Fine. I'll let you off the hook for now. But I'm keeping an eye on you, Private. Pull a stunt like that again and you're DONE. Got it?""Crystal." You nod."Good." Simo sighs. "Look, Lucas, I don't enjoy having to grill my own juniors like this, but in this line of work, keeping secrets from your squaddies is surefire way to get someone killed."Your eyebrow twitches at the hypocrisy of Simo's words.>Just let it go. It's not worth it.>Confront him about why he's being so secretive about his ties with Morgan.>Other
>>27097843>Confront him about why he's being so secretive about his ties with Morgan.
>>27097843>>Just let it go. It's not worth it.We can do our own investigation.
>Confront him about why he's being so secretive about his ties with Morgan.
>>27097843>Just let it go. It's not worth it.We already tried to get him to tell once. Once we prove ourselves I'm sure either he or Morgan will let us know.
Rolled 18>>27097843>Confront him about why he's being so secretive about his ties with Morgan.
>>27097843>Just let it go. It's not worth it.No need for bad blood. We can ask Morgan later when we tell her about what happened.
>>27097843>Confront him about why he's being so secretive about his ties with Morgan.Keeping secrets from your squaddies is surefire way to get someone killed, after all.
>>27097843>Just let it go. It's not worth it.
>>27097843>Just let it go. It's not worth it.We're on thin ice with Simo as it is. Let's not do anything rash. There will be another time.
>>27097843>>Just let it go. It's not worth it.
We can always ask Morgan about her ties with Simo rather than the other way around.
>>27097843>Just let it go. It's not worth it.I sure it will be revealed at the most dramatic point of the campaign
>>27097843> Just let it go. It's not worth it.We'll learn anyways if we go down the Morgan route
>>27097843>>Confront him about why he's being so secretive about his ties with Morgan.we could say the same about him keeping secrets
>>27097843>Confront him about why he's being so secretive about his ties with Morgan.lol hypocrit
>>27097843>Let it go. sometimes the best way to keep a secret is to let the topic drop.
>>27097843>Confront him about why he's being so secretive about his ties with Morgan.lets just get it out of the way so we can stop dealing with it later
Rolled 6>>27097843>Just let it go. It's not worth it.Not really worth it. If we need to know we can see if morgan knows.
Are we ever going to choose a real route to go down with the girls? As much as I don't like the idea of upsetting one of them it's gonna get awkward eventually.
>>27097843"speaking from experience Simo?"
>>27097955>the waifu'er appearsseriously, you are ruining this quest right when it needs to gain tractionfuck off and let the relationships happen organically down the line
>>27097955you faggots are making this nauseating
>>27097976He is just asking. Don't need to get all defensive
>>27097955It's only thread 6, calm yourself son. There is no need at all to lock a route this early in a quest. Seriously.
>>270979886 fucking threads into this quest and this is all that has happened
>>27097999I don't think we'll be locked onto Morgan's route until we know her entire story.
>>27097999>>27098006Her route appears to be intriguing, though.
>>27098006Stop thinking this is a VN or something. There aren't really any routes
>>27098029fucking thisall you faggots who just who 'OH GEE WHO SHOULD WE FUCK LETS FOCUS ON THEM ITS TOTALLY A VN GUISE RITE?" need to fuck off
>>27098020shut the fuck up dear god
>>27097976Christ calm down, It was just a question.>>27097985Go fuck yourself, I was just wondering.>>27097999At least you were somewhat 'nice' about it.First time I've actually posted in any of this series, and this is what I get for just asking a simple question. Fucking christ.
>>27097843>>Confront him about why he's being so secretive about his ties with Morgan.
>>27098055this is what you get for treating it like a date simit is not, and you will get shit on when you're stupid about it
>>27098055You kind of get used to it when you comment on 4chan.
>>27098055I'll be sure to keep any and all questions to myself from now on.
>>27098055This ain't a date sim, and you're on the wrong board for that.
>>27098055Not any of these guys, but sorry about that. We seems to get a little bit sensitive about the usage around the words like "route"
>>27098068Considering that even merc uses "routes" and "route lock" to explain stuff; it is just terminology.Don't get your panties in a bunch.
>>27098089I get my panties in a bunch when retards use such things and get it into their heads that this is all the quest is about and ruin it
take a deep breath
>>27098108this is what Merc gets for encouraging it even when he is staunchly opposed to such things
>>27098097I see no way the original question made any insinuation that that was all the quest about, merely whether a general choice was made.Just like the Karla / Sam debate when VMQ1 was new. Even then, the Sam choice was already in the majority.
>>27098087Nice way of saying most people on /tg/ are retarded and love to go on about terminology while missing the overlaying point of the question.
Shut the FUCK up, gentlemen. Please.
>>27098128When the first thing someone asks can be summed up as "which route we picking quise?" there is plenty to insinuate, and the fact that its cropping up so early as prevalent is getting really fucking annoying.Why can't they just let the relationships for organically like normal people as we get to know them and work with them?
>>27098133>love to go on about terminology while missing the overlaying point of the question.Honestly, this is a large majority of 4chan. I can certainly understand people getting upset about something like that, but not this upset. It's nearly as bad as watching /a/'s reaction to rec threads (which has some basis in necessity)
>>27097843You decide to let the comment pass. Simo was already fairly pissed and you didn't want to complicate the situation further. Either way, you could try asking Morgan what exactly his problem was. You make your way to the assigned briefing room, where most of the squad has already assembled. At the front of the class, a projector has been set up, with Bragg sleeping in one of the front seats. Simo comes in shortly after you do, and smacks Bragg in the back of the head to wake him up."Okay everybody, settle down." Simo coughs, clearing his throat. "As you should all know, you have all signed up to join the Demons of Randgriz full time. This means that you will be obligated to participate in missions. Remember, training is over. This is the real thing, and we aren't using paint rounds or anything like that."Simo takes a long look at the assembled squad before continuing."Also, because we are not an official unit within the Demons of Randgriz, we will now no longer be designated Alpha Team. Instead, we will adopt a unit name to set us apart from the other SOF teams that operate within the Demons. Normally, the CO makes the name, but I'm going to be open to suggestions...">Your squad needs an official unit name! What will it be?
>>27098171>we are not an official unit within the Demons of Randgrizthat "not" not meant to be there?
>>27098171The Wolves of August?
>>27098171>Strike OneWe have a Skyranger, we can't just ignore that.
>>27098183that would be nice if we had a person fulfilling the role of B.A.
>>27098171Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13.
>>27098183A for annihilation.
>>27098171Sons of The Boss
>>27098188Typo. Meant to be "now"
>>27098162More or less it is a OCC thought process. Which one will we think/focus on the most given the interactions so far?Ultimately it is the interaction defined by how we play him that matters to this organic growth you speak of. Asking so early is a tad dumb though given most people don't really care.I honestly though kind of want to not pair him with anyone. His waifu will be his honor for no women is as satisfyingly as living a pure life.
Rolled 6>>27098171Fangs of (Write in)

winds of destruction
>>27098223Dammit, 4chan. Stop eating mah images.
>>27098199Seconding "Strike 1", assuming the other squads also take similar designations of "Strike 2", "Strike 3", etc.
A-Team is stupid and OOC, be creative gentlemen
>>27098171Alpha Blue.>>27098223But the Wraiths' whole thing was being a combination of pilot and operator.
>>27098223>>27098236no, wait, wrong spellingRogue Squadron!
>>27098171Hey I have a question to ask /tg/ in general, what does Tier 1 mean?
>>27098183I'm going to vote against that because it just sounds stupid IC
>>27098171The knights of Randgriz
>>27098245go ask /k/ if you want an in-depth answer, but essentially, they are the best special forces, the ones you don't know about
>>27098242We can learn to fly shit. Haha.Then again the wraiths were reestablished as an NRI Team. So the fighter squadron part was dropped.
>>27098199I'm seconding this, but maybe we can replace the "one" with something better
>>27098256I was going to say the same thing, seconded.
>>27098256I like it!
>>27098223>Squadron Motto: "Pretty. What do we blow up first?"Sparky will love it.
>>27098068I wasn't trying to treat it like a dating sim.I remember a couple threads ago that we were told that we wouldnt have time for much social interaction out in the field so.. yeah.. But yeah I'll just shut up about it forever now.
>>27098256Let's go with this.
>>27098274Like a number, or a word?
>>27098223Wraiths!Or failing that, SILLY SQUADRON
>>27098297... But that's so bland. It's so similar to the Demons. Can't we break the mold for once?
>>27098299a letter from the alphabet would work better, like Strike Whiskey or something
The Storm Front
>>27098223I'll second this then.
>>27098245"Tier One" or "Special Mission Unit" is an unofficial term, mostly used by the media, for SFOD-D, ISA, 160 SOAR, Ranger Recon, DEVGRU, and the 24th STS. It has also been used to describe the UK's SAS, the Australian SASR, and the Canadian JTF2.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tier_One_%28military%29

>>27098307Dude, we have the sons and daughters of the original Demons. Plus we combine the Gallian origins with the Belkan knights legacy.But I'm interested. What do you suggest?
>>27098223>WraithsI'll second this in the absence of something better
>>27098336But Lucas doesn't curse.
Rolled 19>>27098256I like it
>>27098310What like, Strike Alpha? Strike Tango? Strike Romeo?Eh... it doesn't feel right. I dunno.
>>27098345How about the Demon Knights?
>>27098352true, but it's not a curse if you abbreviate.
>>27098360that just sounds crap
>>27098223>>27098255>>27098306When they break into smaller teams, they'll be called Fireteam Silly and Fireteam Dinner
>>27098361He does say what the carp and beeswax.
>>27098371he could just as well replace "fuck" with "freak" or something to that effect
>>27098371and thats really fucking annoying, to me it just seems really childish, and having a childish attitude just getts people killed in combat
>>27098345Randgriz' Inheritors?Descendant Ghosts?Sons Exemplar?Why am I thinking Space Marines?
>>27098379You.I like you.
Strike Foxtrot.Tine to get an F-word under the radar.
>>27098366>not Fireteam Beckwith and Fireteam WaughDo you even reference the OGs of OPERATORS OPERATIONALLY OPERATING in OPERATOR OPERATIONS, anon?
>>27098385I wonder if you got the reference I was making.(Not expecting to win, it doesn't sound /k/ enough)
>>27098382Not really? I mean I know plenty of people who just don't like to curse. You never know when your boss might just walk in while your in the middle of a cluster Fuck bomb.
>>27098360Actually that's really nice. Changing my vote to this.How about the Daemon Knights, it rolls off the tongue better.
>>27098389No, i'm working with Star Wars mythology for name.>>27098395Woaaaa woaaaa wo wooooo woooooa wooooooo
>>27098398having been in combat, the first thing almost everyone does is swear, really badly, especially when getting shot at
>>27098384These names just don't flow right. We need a name that's memorable, that sticks.I'm thinking something with the word Sentinel as part of it.
>>27098401...the two variations are pronounced the same...
>>27098171Men of Mayhem.
We could also go for an Ace Combat reference.Eh? Ehhh?
>>27098256I like this one
>>27098401No, just no, that sound like those idiots thinking the name JAGER STURMFUHERER is actually cool all over again.
>>27098436I'm not familiar with AC verse much, please start listing good unit names
>>27098417Yeah. I can understand it in real combat. But he really hasn't been in real combat yet. That and you said it best with almost everyone.
>>27098442>>270984498492nd. Strigon. Schwarze. Mobius. Galm. Garuda. Silber. Yellow, or Gelb. Rot. Schnee. Antares. Gault. Indigo. Wardog. Scarface. Grabacr. Ofnir. There's a whole shitload of them.
>>27098457honestly, I hope the moment shit hits the fan he starts cussing like a sailor and loses his innocence
Wraiths of Ofnir
>>27098446Oh please, that was half of the appeal of the quest.Although I'm tempted to suggest "The Belkan Knights" just to see how many people we piss off.
>>27098504i'm going to veto that just because it would make Edwin an insufferable faggot, moreso than he currently is
>>27098487I like 8492nd, its kinda obscure and random and not trying to draw attention to itself
>>27098504Not to me, that name was as retarded as it came.
>>27098531What's even better was that the 8492nd doesn't exist.
>>27098550I like it even more now
>>27098171Star Children, callsign Yellow 12
>>27098490Kind of agree kind of disagree. I want him to keep his knightly innocence. While getting a little more brutal and coldish. The jager optimism has been done already.
>>27098446The name JAGER STURMFUHRER is cool. I don't much like "the Demon Knights", but I do like JAGER STURMFUHRER. It's in that same area of absurdly cool names that nobody in real life would ever have as Stacker Pentecost, Fionn Mac Cumhaill (it's pronounce like "Finn McCool"), Sol Badguy, Matthew Bunker Ridgway (real guy), Hale Caesar, Usain Bolt (real guy), Wolf Blitzer (real guy), Marshall Law, Talon Karrde, Horace Warfield, and so on.
>>27098573We could still choose a name to coincide with the unit number. I'd say we should pick something related to our status as a black ops unit. Something more secretive and sinister. The Demonds of Randgriz had a more flamboyant name because they were a merc group that operated openly. Things are a bit different now.
>>27098171SpecialTaskForceUnicornBecause everyone knows, Unicorns don't exist.
>>27098627somehow combine wraiths and 8492?
>>27098644>Plus the chance of Lucas going NT-Destroy Mode
>>27098644I love it, and when they ask about it we tell them to stfu
>>27098171"Hm, Wraiths. I kinda like it." Simo nods. "As of now, our official unit designation is Wraith. Bragg, write that down.""Got it.""Anyways, now that we've gotten that piece of business out of the way," Simo continues, "We've got a mission scheduled."Okay, now the room was abuzz with activity, as you and your squad mates start wondering what was going on."Don't worry, this is a relatively simple mission, as far as mission go." Simo activates the projector, showing a map of Gallia's northern coast. "For the past few months, we've been picking up increased amounts of piracy and attacks on shipping trying to enter our northern ports. We've pinpointed the island they're operating from and have reason to believe they're rogue elements of the Imperial Navy.""Define 'rogue'." Falynn says, raising her hand to grab Simo's attention."They are not officially affiliated with the Empire." Simo responds. "However, they seem to have suspiciously easy access to Imperial weapons and supplies."(cont)
>>27098446That name was all right. I didn't think it was cool or anything but it was amusing and I've heard stranger in real life.
>>27098661"Anyways, the Archduchess herself believes that these attacks need to come to an end. Because this island is technically located outside of Gallia's territorial waters, the job is being forwarded to us. As such, this is going to be a joint operation between the Demons' naval, air, and ground forces."Simo activates the projector again, showing a new slide of an aerial photo of a small, rocky island."This is the enemy base, codenamed MOSES. It used to be an old Imperial Navy outpost before it was abandoned after EWII. Our intel suggests that the pirates aren't equipped with anything more than destroyer size ships, with maybe a squadron or two of obsolete fighters. Total number of soldiers is unknown , but can't be more than a hundred." Simo drones on. "The basic plan of attack is that Wraith team, along with teams Metal and Predator, will be airdropped onto the island six hours ahead of the scheduled attack. Primary objective is reconnaissance to mark priority targets for the Navy and Air Force. After that, we'll land a couple platoons of Marines to mop up. Any questions?">Well?
>>27098649That would work. Maybe we could stick an adjective in there with Wraiths, too. It'd be more effective at striking fear into our opponent's hearts, I think.
>>27098676"What can we blow up?"
>>27098676>Predatorare they afraid of the water?are they afraid of FIS?
>>27098676what do we know about metal and predator
>>27098676are we bringing plenty of Comb-B and limpet mines?we rig their aircraft and a few ships and when 0 hour hits we fuck them up
>>27098676Behold team metal
>>27098676Aw balls, 8492nd didn't make it in. :(>Ensure we have air cover prepared so we're not blown out of the sky by their fighters, on the off-chance that we're spotted. Priority targets should be their aircraft and the ships carrying them, so we can establish air superiority. Watch for AA guns, as well. Our flyboys will make mop-up a breeze, once we own the skies.
>>27098676Will we be airdropping recon vehicles?
>>27098676What's the backup plan if any of us are detected or the plan goes belly up?
>>27098644Curses. I got here too late for it to gather steam.Ah well, shit happens.>>27098677It's not supposed to strike fear. Our enemies shouldn't even know we EXIST if we're doing it right. They should think we're either unidentified mercenaries or part of whoever they're officially fighting. Our designation just gets used for internal stuff.
>>27098676"Is there a plan if they get lucky and spot us?"
>>27098676Shore defences? Location of airstrips? Known entrances? Maps? ANY THING WE SHOULD KNOW, LIKE METAL GEAR?
>>27098604Army's quarterback over the last couple years was named Trent Steelman. Tell me that isn't perfect>>27098676Are there any secondary objectives, and do we have any additional intel on possible resistance, etc?
Somehow, I just know that this seemingly small pirate problem will erupt into something much bigger.
>>27098805well they are imperials being funded and equipped by the empire...I just hope it leads to a cold war with nothing but covert actions taken and not "hot" conflicts
>>27098805Oh most definitely. Which is why it's important to ask what's the backup plan and what kind of resources will we have at hand?
>>27098805And then we sight METAL GEAR.And then Solid Lucas has to sneak onto a ship to fistfight a notRussian soldier
>>27098867with our rolls, we'd lose
>>27098676"Rules of engagement?" Lucina asks."Recon only. We engage only as a last resort.""What do we know about Metal and Predator?" Charlotte asks."Metal and Predator are our two most experienced teams, both personally led by Ramirez and Tarin respectively before they retired from active duty." Simo says. "Because you're still green, we're bringing in our best to watch your backs.""How is insertion going to work?" Mary-Kate asks."Each team will be on a separate Skyranger, going in at night from three different directions. We'll be airdropped on the northern end of the mountain. The terrain there is too rough to maintain any permanent defensive positions so detection won't be much of an issue.""And what about vehicles? Runaround asks."We will be issued a team vehicle shortly." Simo nods. "We'll be reporting to the Foundry to take care of that later.""And what if things go tits up?" Sparky asks."If the mission is compromised, we're to link up with Metal and Predator and retreat to the northern end of the island until the primary force arrives. The terrain up there will favor small units like us."With all questions seemingly answered, Simo turns off the projector."The mission will be scheduled to take place in two weeks, so you better prepare accordingly. Keep in shape, review your training, and check your gear. On that note, you're all to report t the Foundry to be issued your weapons and field kit. Dismissed."With that, Simo and Bragg exit the room, no doubt to continue refining their plans while Wraith team begins to disperse.>Might as well head to Foundry like Simo said.>Try and find Lara to see if she got the same mission.>See if you can talk to Mom about this.>Other

>>27098895>Might as well head to Foundry like Simo said.
>>27098895You head off the Foundry, like Simo suggested. Like the barracks, the Foundry was kept separate from the rest of the academy. What little you know if was that it was Grandpa Qyburn's personal laboratory. However, over the years, as he got older, he started doing less and less research and began letting his apprentices start running things. The old coot was still alive, but largely retired from active R&D responsibilities.The Foundry itself is a rather innocuous building, looking like any other simple office complex, though out in the back you can see the large smokestacks of material fabrication facilities so the scientists there could manufacture needed equipment on site.Strangely enough, it seems that you're the first person to arrive, so you enter on your own. You enter the front door, where you're ID checked and stripped of most of your gear before you're allowed in. You're not even allowed to wander the complex without an armed escort. You guess that espionage is a very serious concern in a place like this.You're finally led to a door labeled ARMORY. Your escort opens the door for you and motions for you to enter.What you find is something you're not really expecting.There, facedown on a work table, is a young girl with a hooded jacket. She... appears to be asleep.>Gently wake her up.>Just wait politely.>Look to see if anybody else is around.>Other

Here to pick up your gear?""Yeah." You nod. "The name's Lucas, Lucas Williams.""Nemo, Assistant Researcher." The girl yawns. "Specializing in aircraft avionics and general weaponry.""It's nice to meet you, Nemo." You nod. "Umm, aren't you a bit... young?""Geinus isn't limited by something as arbitrary as age." Nemo mutters as she stretches her arms out. "Most of the Demons' current weaponry and 70% of the Falcon are derived from my designs, and speaking of weapons..."Nemo gets up from her chair and lazily leads you to the back of the room, where you see row upon row of weapons snuggled safely behind a chain link fence. The way Nemo moves, you're almost afraid she's just going to fall asleep on her feet and fall over. Nemo then pulls out a large keychain and starts filing through the keys."You got in right when we're doing some big changes." Nemo continues. "We're phasing out wood as a building material for firearms and transitioning into weapons made 100% out of steel or plastic components. Basically all of our current weaponry will enjoy a 20% weight saving over previous models."Nemo then leads you to rack where you see three different kinds of heavy and light machine guns."These are the latest designs out of the Foundry." Nemo yawns again. "Tier One equipment for Tier One personnel. Take your pick."(cont)

>>27099601FN MAG.I'm the guy who called the 60 the definitive GPMG and even I know what he meant.
>>27099601Probably making reference to the FN MAG. Just about everybody but Ze Germans and i think the spanish in europe issue those. PKMs are pretty popular in the third world.
>>27099617nope>>27099627yephad many a fun time behind a MAG 58
>>27099663M240 is the US military's designation for the MAG. So he was technically correct, he just used an individual nation's designation rather than the name of the gun.
>>27099663isn't 240 just what the US calls the MAG?

>>27099758Standard Gallian designation for automatic weapons.>>27099494You pick up the MAGS M60. Sure, it wasn't as light as the MAGS 9 or as powerful as the HMAGS, but a general use weapon tended to trump specialized ones, especially when you're operating in small, individual units."You know, I've actually been wondering, has anybody ever tried replicating the Ruhm?" You ask ""Hm, it was bit tough just trying to track down that weapon. We lost track of it shortly after the end of EWII, in which I assume it was under some sort of private ownership or just plain forgotten. The fact that it was literally one of a kind didn't help either. Either way, we've only recently rediscovered it. So... maybe give me a few months and we'll see what I can come up with.""Okay..." You stow the M60 back on the rack for now. "What's the rest of the squad getting armed with?""Well, Simo prefers to use the newer model GSRs outfitted with the new .338 caliber rounds. Bragg likes the HMAGS. The rest of your squad is probably going to armed with this..."She then pulls out an almost alien looking, black gun."The TMAG 27 is designed to be the next generation general issue assault rifle for Gallian forces." Nemo drones on. "As I said before, it's built entirely out of steel and plastics. Not a single wood component. It also uses a smaller cartridge to save on weight.""Huh... okay." You nod. "And vehicles?""We've actually got three that can be chosen from." Nemo leads you to another section of the armory. "Due to the nature of how our SOF teams operate, heavy armor is out of the question, so we've been developing alternatives to heavy armor that's light and portable enough to be airdropped along troops."(cont)

>>27100000It's meant as an assault rifle, not a SAW.Wasn't the big complaint about the 27 was that some idiot thought that a machine gun with only slightly more rounds than an AR a good idea?
>>27099949>RHINO GENERAL PURPOSE APC: Based on a Federation design, the Rhino is cheap and easy to maintain. Otherwise, it is essentially just a metal box on treads. Unmodified, its armor isn't particularly thick and it is open topped. However, it's portable and very fast for its size, allowing it to reach areas most other vehicles would find difficult to navigate.VIPER INFANTRY FIGHTING VEHICLE: Unsatisfied with the apparent lack of protection used in both Emmerian and Federation APC designs, Gallian engineers decided to go a different direction and designed the Viper to not only act as an APC, but give it substantial defensive and offensive capabilities as well. This eight wheeled vehicle is armed with a turret mounted 25mm autocannon as well as disposable lance launchers to deal with enemy armor. It's own armor is thick enough to repel most small arms and it can still carry a squad of troops. However, it's almost twice the size of the Rhino.TYPE-41 LIGHT TANK: A deviation from the current Main Battle Tank design philosophy, the Type-41 is specifically designed to be airdropped, and sports the heaviest armor and most powerful weaponry in the form of a heavily upgraded 76mm high velocity cannon. However, naturally, it trades troop carrying capacity for firepower.
>>27100027and then said idiot approved it for use and took away the AR's m249 for that thing, and given its fussy gas system and its love to crank up its ROF when dirty, its the worst thing you could give to a automatic rifleman

You should probably suggest it to Runaround when you see him."Wait, how exactly are we supposed to drop these things from Skyrangers, anyways? Aren't they a bit large?""Tow gliders." Nemo responds. "Crude, I know, but we've got solutions in the works.">Thanks, I gotta be going now.>Actually, I got something else to ask... [specify]>Other
>>27100014The big question to be asked here is whether this not-M16A1 will have the same jam-o-matic problems that the M16 had.

>>27100170>>Actually, I got something else to ask...Guys, we should totally look into creating the Fulton STARS program. Skyhookan out of sticky situations would be as cool as all hell.
>>27100183What, is the army sabotaging it, bad powder, no clean kits, and no chrome-lined chambers?
>>27100185This. And try to tease out any relationship to genius girl.
>>27100183>>27100216Considering the gun's design is being handled by actual engineers... no.
>>27100216This is the special forces, I'm sure they come with cleaning kits. Though if they're brand new, it's possible nobody has figured the other two out yet.
>>27100170>>Actually, I got something else to ask... [specify]Her phone number of course.Anyway >>27100185is good.
>>27100242"Hey guys, self-cleaning means exactly what it says!"
>>27100236the engineers that made the original pre a1 models were good too, but it was army bureaucracy and stupidity that ruined it and got it a shit reputationthere was nothing wrong with the rifle, but plenty wrong with the training, the ammo and the supplies/maintenence
Also, if I'm remembering this correctly, too many chefs. Stoner had a solid design, then the military, in it's infinite wisdom, gave his baby to a committee of other guys to fuck with before adopting it.
>>27100313the rifle would have worked fine if the military supported it and trained its grunts better with it instead of going "HEY GUISE, NEW GUNS THEY AWESOME AND YOU DON"T NEED TO CLEAN THEM OR ANYTHING"
>>27100170"You know, whatever happened to Qyburn?" You ask. "I haven't seen him around in quite a while.""Oh, Qyburn? Hmmmmm...." Nemo. "Last I heard he was going off to oversee some 'special project' that was in the works for quite some time. I haven't seen him for the past couple of years. It's must been us assistant researchers keeping the Foundry running in the meantime.""I see." You nod. "Anyways, thanks for going through all the trouble designing this gear for us.""Don't mention it. It's my job, after all." Nemo yawns. "I'm just... gonna take a quick nap. I'm sure you can find your own way out...."And with that, Nemo slumps back down on the work table and starts snoring loudly. Odd girl. You wonder if her colleagues are weird like that as well.----------------------------------------And just like that, it seems like the last two weeks passed by like a flash of lightning. You find yourself sitting in the back of Barfbag's Skyranger, trying to ignore all the jarring turbulence knocking the aircraft around. Behind the craft is the specialized glider holding the squad's Viper."We'll be reaching the LZ in about fifteen minutes!" Barfbag yells from the cockpit. "Prepare to drop!"Well, this was it. The big jump. Even though you and the other Wraiths have been spending the past two weeks prepping for this moment, you're still wondering if that was enough time.>Try to talk to someone before you drop.

>>27100388You notice Falynn is sitting next to you, and you see she's checking her gear for what had to be the thousandth time after you took off. It seemed like her way of dealing with the anxiety. "Falynn, are you all right? You seem pretty nervous.""I'm f-fine." Falynn mumbles quietly. So quietly you can barely hear her over the roar of the Skyranger's engines. "Nothing to worry about here."Fine? The poor girl was literally shaking in her boots.

You smile.Falynn gently raises her arm and you can feel her hand ruffling your hair."Look, Falynn." You say quietly to her. "We're going to be fine, and we're going to get through this alive. We got through Tier One together, right?""Yeah..." Falynn nods. "But I'm not strong like Bragg, or as stealthy as Lucina, or as smart as Edwin, or as fearless as Charlotte or...""...or?""...or as brave as you." Falynn says, blushing a bit, but then frowns. "I'm just... second rate.">What do you say?
>>27100713'Falynn there is no one else I would trust more to have my back in a fight than you. Now stop worrying and ruffle harder!'
>>27100713>"Me? Brave? Far from it. I've just got lucky and got good squaddies to cover my back!"
>>27100713"You didn't make it through our training by being second class.."
>>27100713"You remember all the others who tried out for the tier 1 program? All the ones who couldn't take it, all the ones who dropped out? You beat them all: you were braver, you were stronger, you were smarter. That makes you one of the most diciplined and well trained soldiers in the country and I'd trust you with my life on the field of battle any day."
>>27100713"Want to know something Falynn?"/sneaks alook at the other"I'm actually really scared right now. You saw the last time i went out of a plane right? I'm going to have to do that again and I'm not sure I brought enough underpants."Get her laughing. It'll calm her down."And no Falynn, you're not. Edwin, Charlotte, Lucina, everyone also has things they can't do. Edwin doesn't know how to stop being a ass and Sparky doesn't know how NOT to use explosives. Thing is Falynn, no one here is as good as machines as you. You ARE the best Engineer in our year and no one could match you. And even if you were second-rate, which you are most certainly not, you're second rate in a team of elites. Thats many times better than anyone else out there and losing by a few positions to someone like Lucina? Well, that really speaks better of you than worse."
>>27100713"Considering you managed to get into tier 1 at all? You underestimate yourself."
>>27100713Falynn, you're anything but second rate. A second rate soldier wouldn't be about to jump out of an airplane. A second rate soldier wouldn't be sneaking around an enemy base--hell, a second rate soldier probably wouldn't even have gotten this far.A second rate soldier would be part of those Marines gonna be mopping the island up after we've scoped out all the pretty targets for them to shoot--and last time I checked, Falynn, we're not the ones stuck at the staging area waiting to get intel on what to shoot at once we move.
>>27100713"Want to know something Falynn?" You lean in even closer. "I'm actually really scared right now. You saw the last time i went out of a plane right? I'm going to have to do that again and I'm not sure I brought enough underpants.""Yeah, I remember that." Falynn giggles. "You were screaming like a little girl all the way down."And no Falynn, you're not. Edwin, Charlotte, Lucina, everyone also has things they can't do.

>>27100941At that moment, the red light illuminating the cabin suddenly switches to green."OKAY! WE ARE NEARLY AT THE LZ!" Simo yells. "EVERYBODY STAND UP AND HOOK UP! COUNT IT OFF!"Everybody checks their gear to make sure it's all there and begins shouting off to confirm it. Once Simo is satisfied he wrenches the cabin door open. He then looks back at Barfbag, who gives the thumbs up."OKAY GO GO GO!" Simo yells, pushing the Wraiths out one by one.Soon enough it's your turn to step up to the door. It's so dark out, you can't even the see the ground below. All you can do is close your eyes, take a deep breath, and jump.>And that's all for tonight! Next thread will be sunday 6-7pm PST!
