I'M LATE, I'M LATE, FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE.> Sunday, September 8th, 2013SITUATION: http://pastebin.com/Ac5gJdwqMECHANICS: http://pastebin.com/Se82xDLeCREW ROSTER: http://pastebin.com/qVD3DM17THE SHOP: http://pastebin.com/ZMy4Q2sqArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Girls%20Und%20Panzer:%20LGA%20QuestYou are Gertrude Pool, Sophomore Class President and new commander of Lafayette Girls Academy’s revived Tankery Team.It is SUNDAY.What exactly happens on Sunday, you’re not exactly sure. Your dorm is still hot as an oven, so it’s more or less time to get the hell out and do something worth your time. You quickly shower and toss on a T-Shirt and your cargo shorts. Nancy’s probably at church right now, so there’s no real need to go to her directly. You still have to go to Michelle’s place to prepare the presentation.> Go wake Kitten> Head directly to Michelle’s> Embark on another subquest (Specify)> Hang out with someone> Other
>>28305893>> Head directly to Michelle’s
>>28305893What time is it? Don't want to go to Michelle's too early, after all.
>Go wake Kitten>Head to Michelle's afterwardsWell, in case it's a tad too early we might as well pick up Kitten first.
>>28306006>Don't want to wake Michelle>Let's wake Kitten insteadNo bullying Kitten please.
> Head directly to Michelle’s> Go wake KittenWelp, nothing for it. Time to hit the road. You eat your perfectly balanced breakfast of milk and cereal, then head out of the dorm and into the burning hot sun. Shit it’s not even summer anymore and it’s still perfect weather for getting one’s tan on.You decide on waking Kitten first though, maybe she’ll want to come. You need to pick out new clothes for her anyway.You head downstairs then knock on her door, and to your surprise, Kitten answers, already dressed in her uniform.“Kitten,” you say. “You’re already awake?”“All that sleeping I did yesterday ruined my sleep cycle, so I’m pretty much awake now.”You nod, smiling. “Excellent! Want to go to Michelle’s place? She knows a lot about tanks!”Kitten shrugs. “Sure, might as well continue to melt like ice cream out here.”The two of you head on over to Junior dorms. They’re not particularly far, mind you, but the summer sun that doesn’t know that it’s fall is really putting on a damper on you and Kitten. At least you’re not running.Kitten says, “So, this Michelle person, is she alright?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28306105Yeah, she's cool. But, uh...try not to talk TOO much about tanks around her.
>>28306105> PoliteBy the way since you were late does that mean we can continue until 10:30?
>>28306140Yep, around 10:30-10:40ish.
> Polite“Michelle’s very nice and a very smart, hard worker. Just don’t mention tanks around her though.”Kitten raises an eyebrow. “Why’s that? I thought you said she knew a lot about tanks.”“Well, you know, the Aces all have a history, I don’t want them to start having flashbacks like some ‘Nam vet.”Kitten nods. “Alright then, get my hopes up for nothing with tanks and shit.”You mockingly pout at her. “I’m so sorry, Kitten. But maybe you two have something in common! Maybe you play the same video games or like the same movies.” Kitten simply rolls her eyes at that.You arrive at Michelle’s place then knock on her door.No response.> Continue knocking> Leave> Other
>>28306301Are there any windows or a keyhole or something you can look through? If the room is dark, leaving is best, if not might as well knock some more.
>>28306301> Continue knockingPersistence is Trude's real last name.
>>28306301>> Continue knockingIf that fails call her on her phone
>>28306301> Continue knockingIT'S ON NOW DOOR! YOU DARE IGNORE ME? YOU WILL OPEN AND I WILL CONVERSE WITH MICHELLE!
>>28306301We do not take kindly to unanswered doors.
> Continue knockingYou continue knocking on Michelle’s door. After a time, you almost decide on giving up, until the door opens. Michelle greets you in her pajamas looking very tired.“I’m sorry,” you say. “Did I wake you?”Michelle shakes her head, sniffling. “Nah, I’m just a little slow. Flu’s really got me this weekend. Something you need?”You say, “Ah, I was just wondering if you wanted to like, prepare for the presentation.”“That tomorrow?”“Think so.”Michelle nods, coughing into her elbow. She gestures you in. “Alright, come in. Watch yourself though, I’m still not exactly in the best shape.”You wave her off, chuckling. “Oh relax, me and Kitten are from the South. Our immune systems are as impenetrable as a nun’s chastity belt.” You suddenly realize you forgot to introduce Kitten. “Oh yeah, this is my friend, Carol. We call her Kitten.”Kitten nods, mumbling out a “hello.” Michelle nods back.“I’d shake your hand,” says Michelle. “But who knows where my hand’s been.”Righto, where to start?> Goof off> Work> Other
>>28306492> Goof offGotta give Michelle a slow start.
>>28306492> WorkMan, I guess she really was wrecked.Bolter probably decided to just visit her.
>>28306492> Goof offLet's bring her spirits up a bit first.
>>28306492>> Goof offgoof ofa bit, then get to work
>>28306492>WorkThe faster we're done the faster we're not at ground zero for the umbrella virus and we're out of Michelle's hair. besides, we got shit to do.
> Work“So, how exactly are we going to do our presentation, Michelle?”Michelle lies down on her bed while you and Kitten take the couch. Michelle says, “Well, I prepared a powerpoint on some different flowers and such, Chrysanthemums too. I think we can just coast on by by just reading off the powerpoint.”You lean back in your seat. “Ah, that’s no fun. Why don’t we spice things up?”“How?”You shrug. “I dunno how. And don’t give me that ‘you suggested it’ crap, I’m just suggesting it.”Michelle scratches her chin. “Eh, I suppose maybe you can stop by and get actual Chrysanthemums.” Michelle looks over at Kitten. “What are you doing here, by the way? I don’t think I’ve seen you in class before.”Kitten shrugs. “I take online classes.”Michelle nods. “Ah, what Department are you?”“Ah, I’m not Naval Studies?”Michelle skeptically asks, “What’s your job then?”Kitten blushes, looking away. “Uh… I don’t have a job.”Michelle nods. “You should get one.” She looks over at you. “Anyway, you gonna do most of the talking or should I?”> I’ll do the talking> You do the talking> We’ll both do the talking
>>28306709>> I’ll do the talking
>>28306709>> We’ll both do the talkingFair amount of work for both of us.
>>28306709>We’ll both do the talking>Something about there being a flower store and we could just get a few and then read off the power point? It's an english presentation, not the state of the union, so I think we'll be fine.
>>28306709>We’ll both do the talking
>>28306709>> We’ll both do the talking
>>28306709> I’ll do the talkingUnless she wants to.We need all the public speaking practice we can get to be a good leader!
>>28306709>We’ll both do the talkingWe could bring in Ramirez ha!
>>28306728>>28306738>>28306748>>28306754Actually, hold on guys. We should do the talking since Michelle has a Flu, we shouldn't let her condition get worse
>>28306709> I’ll do the talkingPeople, Michelle is fucking sick.
>>28306709> I’ll do the talking
>>28306773That's not how the flu works, dude.Flu means 100% feeling like shit 100% of the time. Besides, she's a big girl. If she says she can present with us then that's that.
>>28306709> I’ll do the talkingSo apparently I can cross off 'basic attention to detail' off thing /tg/ has.
>>28306834That doesn't mean we should just shit on more work on her.Newsflash, feeling shit tends to screw with your public speaking abilites.
>>28306709>We’ll both do the talkingNo need to hog the spotlight unless she doesn't want to speak in front of the class or somethingAlso, go recruit the otakus you bums
>>28306709> I’ll do the talking>>28306862Not a fucking chance, I'd take the Hall Monitors over those loons.
>>28306862Why on earth would we want them? That'd just traumatize Nancy even more.
>>28306877Man, why are you so buttmad about the Wapanese?They and Kitty are not that different, just putting that out there
>>28306877Oh man, I bet the stasi would be great in a fast, agro medium tank.
> We’ll both do the talking“We’ll both do the talking. 50/50 you know?”Michelle groggily waves her arm at you. “No sympathy for the afflicted, you monster.”You shrug. “Meh, it’s only fair.”A knock comes at Michelle’s door. You stand up to answer, but she immediately cuts you off. “No no, I’ll get it.” She walks over to the door and opens it up.“Michelle, good to see you.” Wendy Kniep, clad in her Naval Studies Engineering uniform. She has a bag of goodies in one hand. “I brought some sweets and orange juice for you, figure it’d help that flu.”“Oh, thanks, Wendy.” She motions Wendy to come in, to which she does, and when she notices you and Kitten, she looks surprised.“Well, Gertrude Pool! You made quite a stir with the whole Storage G thing.”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28306890Kitty doesn't actively traumatize the crews. More like the opposite.
>>28306899>Polite"You know, that's just how we do. And we totally found that tank I was looking for."
>>28306899>> PoliteI feel this could go both ways considering we left some members behind
>>28306899>> PoliteI was just looking for my tank.
>>28306904Still though, we try to get Kitty to be less socially awkward around people through tankery, why do we deny them that chance?
>>28306890I didn't know Kitten speaks in broken jap all the time along with watching anime porn without a headset while there are other people around while having completely traumatised Nancy.They aren't even in the same ballpark moron.
>>28306928Because they actively harass Nancy.
>>28306938Well no need for name callingWhile Kitty is quiet and reserved, the otakus are loud and obnoxious, both indicate a lack of udnerstanding for social norms
>>28306899>BoastThis is a situation you've gotta boast.
>>28306961I'd take quiet and reserved over loud and obnoxious any day of the week.
>>28306928We're not a fucking charity case, we help Kitty because she's Kitty. The otaku lost their chance by harassing Nancy, someone else can help them.
>>28306961Kitty we have personal knowledge of being harassed in middle school. We know nothing of the otakus besides their obnoxious and Nancy hates them.IC we wouldn't want to recruit them.
>>28306973Well if you want to keep this quest dull and uninteresting fine by meJust saying that it would spice things up a little, we don't always have to take the "best" course of action, sometime, we should take the fun one
>>28306961...uh. Quiet and reserved aren't "lack of understanding," it's "personal(ity) traits," just like "loud," is.What point are you trying to get at anyways?
>>28306986I didn't know taking on a bunch of obnoxious retards counted as "fun".
>>28306986Can you please take this passive-aggressive thing somewhere else?I mean...really.
>>28306989>What point are you trying to get at anyways?it would be fun to try to get them to work as a tank crew, and with the rest of the team, is all I'm saying
>>28307002And yet here you are
>>28307007Avatarfagging is against the rules, bro.To address your point: I disagree for all the reasons I and other anons have stated prior to this post: They're rude and awful people and why would we want to associate with them?
>>28307005I didn't start insulting other for disagreeing, there should just be a consensus about it and that'd be it.But no, we have to trashtalk since I think it'd be fun
> PoliteYou wave her off. “Oh, it was nothing. We were just looking for tanks you know?”Wendy nods, skeptical of you. “And you sure found a tank. A T28/T95 GMC.” You can hear Michelle snicker briefly in the background.“Well, it’s a tank isn’t it?”“Technically it’s a very very heavy tank destroyer/assault gun.”Jeez.Michelle pops a cough drop into her mouth then sits back down on her bed. “So, Wendy, how have you been?”Wendy shrugs, crossing her arms. “Eh, Naval Studies is a lot of work but at least I don’t pay tuition like you rich people.” She looks over at you, almost glaring at you. “Speaking of which, what’s going on between you and Octavia?”You and Kitten glance at each other briefly. “Uh…” you say, “Huh?”“Octavia told me you’re directing the play, but she let slip something about helping you with something. And I know that something is with Tanks.” With that, Michelle also looks at you, skeptical. “What’s your angle?”What’s your angle?> Truth> Lie> Change the Subject> Other
>>28307023And what is your point supposed to be? That you're an obnoxious retard? If you want to convince us, you better come up with a better message than amusing ourselves with the shenanigans of the retard club.
>>28307038Posting images on an imageboard isn't avatarfagging
>>28307045>TruthWe don't stand a chance without veterans.
>>28307045>Truth>Shrug to "She needs help with the play and Tankery needs all the help it can get."
>>28307045> TruthThey're not idiots. Don't treat them like they are.
>>28307045>TruthThere's no reason to lie.
>>28307052A "retard club" saved Ōarai Girls' Academy's ass during the previous tournament
>>28307045> TruthI'd rather have to work harder for their help than to lie to them.
>>28307045> TruthIt's not like we have anything to hide, Trude asked her if she wanted to help tonking and she agreed in return for help with the play.
>>28307038I kind of agree with you on this.However, doesn't the tournament allow up to 12 to 15 tank crews in a fight? So wouldn't it be a good idea to recruit any club we can get? Especially, if the clubs are limited.Then again the anime club will be at the bottom of said list
>>28307079The online tank girls were nowhere near as bad as these otakus are described.
>>28307079There are honestly no words.
>>28307089I don't know on the maximum/rules, but there's also such a large student population on Lafayette that we don't need to go scum sucking for crews.We don't have the tanks or budget to support that many in the first place.
>>28307045>Truth>>28307052Not who you are replying to, but they could be a diamond in the rough. All they need is some shaping and they'll stop being obnoxious loud retards. Who knows if an Ace lies behind the layers of annoying?Or there could be nothing to them beyond obnoxious retards, in which case we'll have fucked up royally.I agree with >>28307089 when he says if we need extra teams, they'll be the very last club we'll ask.
>>28307116I, personally, am fine with that risk.Not to mention everyone who supports the freaks ignores how badly they treat Nancy.
>>28307132Not any worse than the molest-y sewing club though
> Truth“She needed help with the play, and we needed help with Tankery. Simple as that.”…Oh boy, uh.Wendy says, “Real simple huh?”You say, “She’s not driving tanks or anything, she’s just giving us some tips! She’s basically an instructor to us.”The two Aces do not look particularly impressed. Michelle says, “Listen, Gertrude. You shouldn’t go digging holes in places like this.”Wendy nods. “Yeah, I don’t know how you managed to convince Octavia to join your little Tankery program thing, but maybe you should stay out of our affairs.”You cross your arms, frowning. Kitten is starting to feel just a bit awkward, so she stands up and says, “We should be going, right, Trudy?”Wendy nods. “Yeah, you probably should.”> “Actually…”> “Yeah, we should.”> Other
>>28307143They don't make Kitten hide in a trash can and phone for extraction while on the verge of tears, so...I'd venture that sewing club's nowhere near as bad
>>28307132This si true, then again I think we're shit talking them a bit too much.Not that it's undeserved they do have some responsibility but I'm getting a feeling of misunderstanding considering how otakus can be a bit socially awkward. Not to mention during the harassment it was the hall monitors that set this up. \They could have very well have told the anime club that Nancy like this stuff in secret. and was being a tsundere or something.
>>28307143At least the sewing club are somewhat justified in that, and they've been extremely helpful in other ways. They also made Kitten their friend.Meanwhile we've got Nancy traumatised, actually traumatised, by her experiences with the anime club.
>>28307146>“Actually…”We've got a project to at least sort of finished.I guess look at Michelle and see what's up.
>>28307146Leave, but tell them we have our reasons. We'd leave it alone if we could.
>>28307146>“Actually…”Tell them the reason WHY we are doing Tankery, I doubt it'll change their views but they should know.
>>28307146> “Actually…”Fuck that, it's not like we've been begging these two to join. Octavia wants to help us, that's her business, not theirs, just as much as their past is none of Trude's business.
>>28307159Shockingly, people who have traumatized one of our friends do not make the best first impression.
>>28307146I wonder if we should pull out our trump card and say if we don't do Tankery, the school's going to be put of commission.
>>28307159That's forgetting (ignoring?) that Nancy roomed with one of them. And that they did that stuff with and without the SS.
>>28307146>"Actually..."We're gonna dig so hard, we'll awake a Balrog.
>>28307146> “Yeah, we should.”This is like lighting the wick to a bomb.
>>28307175Of all the non-staffers they're probably right there on top of the "could probably be informed without freaking out," list.I don't know if this is the right time to drop the bomb, but they're both juniors aren't they? If Lafayette closes they're going somewhere else for senior year...
>>28307189True, not saying their hands are clean, just saying that I wouldn't put the SS to pull something like this
>>28307175I disagree, this was a secret entrusted to us by the principal. I don't feel comfortable about releasing this just yet considering all we really know about them is their an awesome tank crew.I rather they come around on their own then being pressed into service that if they don't the ship is doomed
>>28307175>>28307203They'll say they'll hopefully be transferred to a school without tankery, and it'll be for the best.Looks like these girls aren't half as good as Miho at hiding their PTSD.
>>28307228Fine, then just tell them we have our own big secrets and that they shouldn't judge us either.
>>28307249This sounds good.
> “Actually…”“You know Wendy, I didn’t force Octavia to help me. I’m helping her, she’s helping me. Quid pro quo, that’s what’s going on here. I respect her enough not to dig into her past.”Wendy scoffs. “Do you really?”“Yeah! I do!” you put your hands on your hips. “I understand that something happened and that it’s none of my business! Look, this Tankery thing is important to me, in many ways you can imagine.”Michelle says, “Look, Gertrude, just don’t press us about Tankery, okay?”You nod. “Yeah, fine, Michelle. I won’t.” You look at Wendy dead in the eyes. “Because I happen to have some respect for the both of you.”Kitten tugs on your sleeve. “Can we go now?” she asks.You nod. “Yeah, Kitten, let’s go.”With that, the both of you exit Michelle’s dorm. The door is slammed behind you as you walk out. You sigh, rubbing your temples. This isn’t how you pictured your morning going.Kitten asks, “What now?”> Embark on a subquest (Specify)> Hang out with someone> Go meet Nancy> Other
>>28307284>Go meet Nancy
>>28307284>> Go meet NancyLet's go SHOPPING
>>28307284>other>hug kitten, calm down>Go meet Nancy
>>28307284>> Go meet Nancy
>>28307284> Go meet NancyIf it's still to early, I want to meet the flygirls and the planes that they might be working on. That should put a sparkle in Kitten's eyes.
>>28307284>> Go meet Nancy with KittenFinally some new clothes...for absolutely no reason that I can think of. What kind of clothes do we need? Whats our budget and what is restricted by those corrupt police gals?
>>28307284>Relax with KittenWell that was about the worst way to socialize Kitten. Still, don't regret it.
> Go meet NancyWelp, nothing for it then. Time to go see Nancy.“So, those Aces are a real piece of work,” says Kitten.You say, “They have a history, I told you this. Now that I think about it though, looks like their history is really eating them up.”Kitten nods and says, “Did I bitch that much in Middle School?”“Nah, you usually just cried into my shoulder while I comforted you,” you respond. Kitten snickers.The two of you begin your walk down the street. You check the time. Looks to be about quitting time for morning mass. Thankfully it doesn’t seem as hot anymore, but it’s still bright as fuck. So bright, you didn’t notice oncoming traffic.You bump into something. You look around, nothing. You look downwards.“Oh,” you say. “Hey, O’Hara.”“How about you step back for me,” she says into your chest. You step back, and see O’Hara adjust her glasses. She’s clad in her school uniform, black armband with the LES sigil on it. Next to her is another Law Enforcement Student, who looks tired as all hell.“Pool. Been meaning to talk to ye,” O’Hara says. “How are you doing by the way?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28307422>> PoliteDon't antagonize unnecessarily.
>>28307422>PoliteYou know...same old...
>>28307422>> PoliteI smell a recruiting opportunity.
>>28307422>> PoliteShe's being polite, we can return the favor.
>>28307422> NeutralNot the best start to the day...
>>28307422Why do I keep getting the feeling that O'Hara has a massive crush on Gertrude.
>>28307512Just your yuri senors going on overdrive
>>28307512Why you say that?
>>28307534We know she has a crush on someone at the school.
> Polite“I’m doing fine, thanks O’Hara.” You motion over to Kitten. “You remember Kitten, right?”O’Hara shakes her head. “Nope. She a friend of yours?”You nod. “Yeah, anyway, what’d you want to talk to me about?”O’Hara smiles smugly, clapping her hands together. “Thank you for getting Pinkerton and O’Bannon demoted to Trainee. Not only do they no longer have the power to issue tickets, brig people, or give non-continuous detention, but our Law Enforcement Studies Advisors have seen fit to promote me to Shift Leader!”You nod, smiling back. “That’s great. Really!” Not really.O’Hara nods, giggling. “Oh, you know, a freshmen a Shift Leader. Unheard of until now. Those days of getting my head eaten off by those fecking cunts O’Bannon and Pinkerton are waaaay in the past.” She looks over at O’Brain, and her smile instantly drops. “O’BRIAN! WAKE UP!”O’Brain immediately jumps, unfolding her baton and getting into a defensive posture. “WHASSAT, WHERE ARE THEY!?”“THERE’S NOBODY! YOU FELL ASLEEP AGAIN YOU SLEEPY CUNT!”O’Brain folds up her baton and points it at O’Hara. “Oi, don’t you be calling me a fecking cunt you pussyfooting jackass!”“I can call you whatever I want, I’M YOUR FECKING SHIFT LEADER!”“The only fecking shift I see is in your sexuality you-““I’M NOT A FUCKING DYKE YOU CUNT!”> “Uh…”> Leave> Other
>>28307512>>28307534>>28307550Forbidden love aside, take off your shipping goggles or go back to /u/. You can't just ship random people because they said please and thank you to each other.
>>28307550I highly, highly doubt that it's us.
> LeaveIt's best to escape while they're distracted.
>>28307512The whole flipping out thing the last time we saw her.Also could be that my yuri goggles are at maximum power.>Confessed to be foul-mouthed, short, Irish girl with confidence issues.HHHHHHNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGG
>>28307565I'm so happy those two go demoted.
>>28307565>Well that's just like your opinion man>...reassure O'Hara she's straight?
>>28305893I just want to mention that .gif syncs up perfectly to the bass of the song I'm listening to.
>>28307565> LeaveGood God, can't the Hall Monitors get someone who's not bloody Irish?
>>28307565Wait we got the goons demoted? They no longer have actual power?aww yiss>LeaveAlternate>>28307602>...reassure O'Hara she's straight?>"Look, if anyone here bats for the other team, it's me."
>>28307565> “Uh…”Advise her, from one leader to another, that bossing around people is sometimes fun. But don't let the power and authority get too much into your head.She still seems to hold a bit of idealism in her at least.
>>28307565>“Uh…”This >>28307602We got them demoted HA!
>>28307565> Other"Is this normal interaction between hall monitors?"
>>28307565> LeaveWhelp, that's nice, now time to leave, I can practically feel my ears fill up with filth.
Why are we only meeting people who are bad influences on Kitten today?
>>28307565>"Uh...">>28307606Do you know of people that's more law-abiding than the Irish? I sure don't.Also, that's two times O'Hara's been called out. That's coincidence.If a third daughter of Eire makes the same claim we turn on the Shadowruns.
>>28307678Karma for spending the rest of the day with Nancy.Unless you happen to think Nancy is a bad influence. :/
>>28307685Well, I'd say her reactions were more suspicious than the actual accusations, really.
>>28307698You gotta look at how she reacts though. It's not preposterous denial, it's aggressive/panicky "What? No! No no no no I am NOT a lesbian I swear"She's totally a lesbian.
>>28307717They were trying to liberate themselves from the oppressors.
> LeaveYou quickly grab Kitten and decide to sidestep around them.“O’BRIAN, IF YOU WEREN’T SUCH A FUCKING NIGHT OWL MAYBE YOU WOULDN’T FALL ASLEEP LIKE SOME LITTLE BABBY!”“WELL MAYBE I’D ACTUALLY GET SOME SLEEP IF YOU’D STOP MOANING IN THE FUCKING NIGHT ABOUT-!”O’Hara stomps her foot repeatedly, red in the face. “SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP! YOU FUCKING CUNT!”“THE ONLY CUNT I SEE HERE IS YOU AND I’M VERY GENUINELY SURPRISED THAT YOU’RE NOT EATING ANOTHER ONE EITHER!”“I’M GONNA STICK THIS BATON SO FAR UP YOUR FUCKING ARSE THAT YOU’LL BE SERVING AS A PARKING METER!”You continue walking. Kitten looks up at you and says, “I’m glad I don’t attend school.”You say, “Yeah, Hall Monitors are not the most agreeable people.”You continue on to the Church, and true to your earlier word, it seems people are just leaving. They’re clad in nice suits and lovely dress. You find Nancy waiting at the entrance, and she greets you happily.“President! Kitten! Good to see you! How are you doing?” she asks.> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28307565>"Uh..."This is clearly an issue with her. I say pat her on the shoulder and tell her that it doesn't matter which way she swings in the grand scheme of things. Haters gonna hate.
>>28307757You shut your fucking face, catholic pig.
>>28307757By bombing pubs in Dublin. IRA a shit.
>>28307757I'm pretty sure terrorism isn't even close to "law-abiding".
>>28307764>Neutral>What a fucking day and it's not even noon.
>>28307764> NeutralNot the best start of the day, I'd say.
>>28307764> NeutralJust had to deal with two Aces and Hall Monitors.
>>28307764> NeutralIt could've been better.
>>28307764Jesus Christ O'Hara, how are you still bothering to object so hard with these kinds of things levied at you?> NeutralWell, things could be better.

Why don't we invite O'Hara over to watch some Ryan Gosling/Reynolds/other hunky manly man movies?We can soothe the gay panic and get a hall monitor in our pocket.
>>28307920Hmm, that's a nice idea. Not for now though.
> Neutral“Eh, could be better.”Nancy nods. She’s dressed up in her school uniform. Nothing better to wear for Church you suppose. “Well, I hope I can make your day better then, President.” The three of you hop down the steps. “So, I was thinking we could maybe hit up the local bargain bin or something, see if we can’t find something that fits you for cheap.”You shrug. “Eh, me and Kitten are okay with whatever fits.”Nancy pouts. “Oh, you shouldn’t have to settle with ‘just’ whatever fits. You should look nice and-“ She gasps. “Oh, that’s right! The Sewing Club just called me to tell you about our uniforms!”“We have uniforms now?” you ask.Nancy happily nods. “Yep! We could stop by them if you want. Maybe they can just make some clothes for us or something.”> Sewing Club> Bargain Bin> Take a walk around for some other stores> Other

>>28307933>> Sewing ClubLet's go get groped.
> Sewing Club“Let’s head over to the Sewing Club building. See what’s what.”Nancy nods. “Whatever you say.”The three of you head for the Sewing Club building. The Sewing Club building isn’t unique, many other clubs take entire buildings as their clubhouses. For example, the Cooking Club takes an entire restaurant to themselves, and you often hear rumors about the Film Club in the old haunted Hollywood building.Kitten and Nancy make small talk along the way.“So, Kitten, what do you think you’d look good in? Maybe a nice sweater for the upcoming weather?”Kitten shrugs. “I’m in the same boat Trudy is. I don’t care.”Nancy rolls her eyes. “That’s what they all say.”You arrive at the Sewing Club Building and enter. The lights are on, the clothes are no longer splayed or tossed around but are instead neatly lined up in racks. Anna greets you at the counter.“Gertrude! Kitten! Nancy! Good to see you three! What brings you here?”> Uniforms> Clothes> Other
>>28308088> UniformsWe don't give a shit about the clothes.

>>28308154Well, if we could squeeze all of it in a day and if they aren't too swamped with requests. Yeah sure, let's go for it.
>>28308088>> Uniforms>> Other: Would you guys be interested in making costumes for the school musical?
> Uniforms“Well, Nancy told me you had uniforms and-“Anna beams like a spotlight. “WE DO!” She quickly grabs Kitten and before she can react she’s suddenly pushed into the backroom.“Mamie! Bess! The uniforms, s'il vous plait!"“Hey! What are you- OW! What the fuck! What the hell is that?!”“Just hold still!”“Wait! WHY ARE YOU TAKING MY UNDERWEAR OFF?!”Lord knows what they’re doing back there.You and Nancy stand outside the curtains of the backroom for a minute or so. Then, the curtains open, revealing the Sewing Club and Kitten.Kitten stands there awkwardly, red in the face. The Tankery Uniform she now wears appears to be more of a variation of the Naval Studies Uniform. It was a navy blue jacket with a red sailor collar, a red skirt, and to top it off, a blue field cap.“Leather jackets and pants are optional of course,” says Anna. “But what do you think, Gertrude, too derivative?”> Looks great.> Yeah, too derivative. > Fuck if I know.> Other
>>28308269> Fuck if I know.
>>28308269> Looks great.> OtherAsk Kitten how comfortable the uniform is.
>>28308269> Fuck if I know.No clue.
>>28308269>Other>"Maybe a little more green? I mean, that's the classic, right? And we did pretty well in WWII so why change... One of those big, comfy jackets.">Talk about costumes for the play>Also shopping>Maybe ask why Kitten's underwear had to come off
>>28308269>> Fuck if I know.
>>28308269>You look very dashing Kitten! We'll certainly out-fashion the other teams like this, an important leg up in psychological combat.
>>28308269> Yeah, too derivative. > Fuck if I know.>Something a bit more traditional?I think this is a case where pictures are needed
> Fuck if I know.“Well, hell if I know, I’m not a fashion connoisseur like yourself, Anna.”Mamie says, “Maybe olive drab instead of navy?”Anna scratches her chin, pensive. “Perhaps. I don’t want to give us too much of an army look…” Anna lifts Kitten’s skirt up an inch, and is quickly slapped on the hand by her. “Hmph. I suppose there’s nothing for it. We’ll scrap the design and go back to the drawing board.” She quickly pulls the curtains back. There’s the sounds of rustling and Kitten shouting, then quickly the curtains are drawn and she’s back in her school uniform.“That wasn’t fun,” says Kitten. Anna simply pats her on the head.“Oh, don’t be such a sadsack, Kitten. You’ve got the makings of a model in you!”“Yeah, I’d really like to see my body artificially enhanced and then get yelled at by Tyra Banks on national televisions, that sounds like real fun.”You say, “Anyway, Anna. I actually wanted to talk with you, you think you could provide costumes for the upcoming play?”Anna nods. “Of course! Sewing Club’s duty is to make clothes for any purpose.”You nod. “Great! And I suppose it’s free!”She nods back, smiling. “Oh, you helped the Sewing Club regain its former glory, of course it’s free!”Nancy says, “Speaking of which. We were looking for some casualware, do you think you could help us?”Anna claps her hands together, giddy at the prospect of clothes shopping. “Lovely! What are you looking for exactly?”> Let Anna choose> Something practical> Something really nice> Other
>>28308468>> Something really nice

>>28308468>> Let Anna choose>> Something practical>> Something really nice>> Other>"Well, we were just gonna go...look at stuff"
>>28308269>> Yeah, too derivative.Army, not Navy. More drab green, less sailor more GI. What about sleeveless? No, too 'nam.Pockets. Lots of pockets. Did I say less blue? Because we're tankers not navyfags, replace all blue with OD #7. Do we have a school crest? Because combine that with a white star or tanks or shells.And leather. How long is the skirt? Too short? Should they be pants? Would that be too dyke-y?Are there gloves? Are there hats? Are they nice hats? What if we give our tank commanders different colour hats? What if we give our team captain a different, larger hat?
>>28308468> Let Anna chooseSurprise us.

>>28308496drab green?What we need it feldgrau
>>28308468>Let Anna choose
>>28308534We're not some fuckin' nazi sympathizers. Lafayette is American as fuck.
>>28308557Feldgrau is just a color, it has no connection to the Nazis apart from them using it, too, for the first years of warThey latter were forced to dilute the dye because of material shortages, which turned it into a brown-ish color, but stillWell anyway, point is, it's a practical color, it's looking pretty good, and makes us stand out from all the green/brown tones the other teams are likely to use
> Some mixture of ALL OF THEM“Well, I suppose I’d like a mixture of practicality and fashion. I’m not of a fashionista so, maybe you could help me choose?”Anna grabs you by the shoulders and starts leading you through the racks. “LET ME SHOW YOU MY WARES!”As you’re led through, Anna quickly picks out all manners of stockings, skirts, shirts, dresses, jackets, and some weird things you’ve never heard of but apparently are actually incredibly common. Nancy and Kitten also given the same treatment by Mamie and Bess and soon enough, you’re all in the backroom with a pile of clothes and some very eager Sewing Club members.“Okay, Anna, uh…” you begin.You don’t get farther than that before you’re stripped like a banana.After a few minutes of trying, testing, and some weird touching, you’re finished.Nancy is decked out in a dark blue jumper dress, with a white shirt underneath and black knee highs. Her hair has been styled into a ponytail, held together with a red scrunchie. Now that’s looking cool.You meanwhile have been put into a navy blue button down shirt with an accompanying black skirt. Simple, practical.Kitten unfortunately had the honor of being dolled up by Anna, and it very clearly shows. She’s put into a pink sundress, a gray cardigan, topped off with a white bow tying her hair into a ponytail.“Wow, Kitten,” you snicker. Don’t laugh, don’t laugh. “You… clean up nicely!”Kitten, who’s still red in the face, simply says, “Yeah, fuck you too, Trudy.”Anna comes in between you two, smiling. “Are you not satisfied?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28308667>> PoliteI THINK IT LOOKS CUTE
>>28308667>Boastif only because Kitten is fucking adorable with her little bow.This also reminds me that I too need my own fall/winter cardigan/sweater.
>>28308667> PoliteThat Kitten outfit sounds adorable.
>>28308667>> Boast>"This is hella cute. Thanks!"
>>28308667>Boast"It looks like FUCK YES. Specially Kitten"
>>28308667> PoliteMight be pretty good, but ask the Sewing Club to get something practical for Kitten too.It'd be a shame to waste the cuteness, if she'll just lock up at home all day afterall.Also, did I strike anywhere close with the LGA uniform in pic related?
>>28308797Funnily enough, that's more or less similar to how Naval Studies look.And that is pretty close I suppose.Jesus, I need to learn how to draw.
> Polite“It all looks very good, Anna. Thanks!”Anna is ecstatic. “Excellent! I do have an eye for casuals you know!”Nancy nods. “It all does look good.” She looks over at Kitten. “I’m especially impressed with Kitten, she looks so cute!”Kitten looks away and says, “Please don’t start, Nancy.”Anna nods. “Anyway, all of this is free of charge. That’s the least I can do for the girl who put the Sewing Club back on the map. I’ll have some proper uniforms for you all later of course.”You nod back. “Of course, Anna.”“Though,” Anna scrutinizes Kitten’s figure. “I suppose Kitten could use a nice swimsuit-“Kitten says, “No.”> Talk with the Sewing Club> Talk with Nancy> Talk with Kitten> Head out and walk around> Embark on a subquest (specify)> Other

> Talk with the Sewing Club“So, Anna, has the Club been doing well?”Anna smiles, then her smile starts to fade slowly. “Eh… not really.”You raise an eyebrow. “Not really?”“Well, we did advertise at the Club fair, we even sold some of our wares. But nobody actually comes by. As it turns out, on an Academyship where nearly all of us wear uniforms most of the time, new threads are apparently in low demand.”You frown. “Ah, that’s a shame. You’re really talented at this stuff, you know?”Anna nods, waving you off. “Ah, don’t worry about me. The Sewing Club has handled ourselves in the thickest of situations. My boyfriend always tells me to-““Wait,” this is new. “You have a boyfriend.”Anna nods, non-plussed. “Of course. Didn’t I tell you?”“… no?”“Hmph. I guess I should make it a bit more obvious then. He doesn’t live on the Academyship, he’s actually back in Richmond. Long distance relationships are always so difficult you know?”You shrug. “I wouldn’t know.

> Subquest: Operation BertramWelp, time to work on the play then. You look over at Nancy and ask her, ”Nancy, when are our auditions for the play?”Nancy says, “I scheduled them for Wednesday, in between our Tankery practices. Of course you’re free to reschedule them when you like.”> Note: Like Tankery practice, you can also schedule various parts of the Play. The only date you can’t reschedule is October 18th, which is the day the play goes live.You nod. “Alright, thanks.” You pull out your cellphone and check the time. Oooh, nearly lunch time.But no, you need to focus, you need actors, you could use some more money you suppose. Most of all, you need music. Music, music, music, think. You can’t exactly blast dubstep on stage and expect the actors to sing to that.You’re not gonna subject the audience to that kind of torture.Of course, music won’t matter without actors. Although auditions are days away, you at least need to guarantee that SOME people will come and audition.So, where do you start then?> Actors> Money> Music> Other

Good thing this isn’t West Side Story where you need to find actors that can Act, Sing, AND DANCE AT THE SAME TIME. Goddamn it, why couldn’t your Theatre Arts kids be like that?Well, at least you don’t have to worry about gender ratio. Regular landlubber high schools would probably have a huge majority of women with just the occasional token guy.

> Lunch at McDonaldsYou take a big bite into your cheeseburger. Hell, it’s not Nancy’s cooking, it may be processed meat, and eating too much of it can give you a stroke, but damn if ain’t good. Nancy ordered herself a salad while Kitten took a cheeseburger and fries to go along.You take a couple of glances around, just a lot of students going about their day.You say to Nancy, “Nancy, you see anyone who looks like they want to be in a play?”Nancy shakes her head. “Nah, I assumed you would.”And it’s definitely out of the question to ask Kitten.You sigh. “Well, this directing thing is turning out to be harder than I thought.”Suddenly, a nearby trashcan lid bursts open, revealing Georgia Jones and Stella Hutchins, reporters from the Lafayette Runner. “WHAT A SCOOP!” yells Georgia.… Were they just-Georgia looks at you, beaming, “So you’re directing the play! That’s a real interesting thing! Mind if we have an impromptu interview?”> Sure, why not.> No thanks> Other

> Sure, why not.“Nah, I don’t mind.” You look at them, still in the trashcan. “How long were you waiting in there?”Georgia prepares her notepad and says, “Doesn’t matter. What matters is a good story. Charlotte and Edna are actually waiting over in Burger King but that’s irrelevant to our interests at the moment. What I want to know is more about you.” She climbs out of the trashcan and sits across from you, with Nancy scooting over to give her space (or to get away from the fact that she sat in a trashcan in a McDonalds.)You rest your head on your hands and lean forward on the table. “So, what do you want to know?”Georgia licks the tip of her pen and begins writing. “So, Gertrude Pool.

> “The play needed my help, so I decided to help.”“Well, the play ran into some troubles pre-production. The director we wanted couldn’t do it, not to mention budget and other issues, so I decided to take up the reins. Simple as that really.”Georgia nods, satisfied. “Always helping others, that’s a good trait to have in this kind of world.” She flips a page on her notepad.“So,” she continues. “Red Dawn: The Musical. It wasn’t exactly well received when it was first adapted for Broadway, and I honestly don’t think it’d do well now. Why is our fall play this year going to be Red Dawn, instead of something a little more respectable like uh… Les Mis, or Oliver, or maybe even Arsenic and Old Lace?”> “I happen to like Red Dawn.

The Movie. Not the remake.”Georgia nods again. “I can relate.” She flips another page in her notepad. “So, last question and I’ll let you get right back to your lunch.”“Shoot.”“So, while you’re obviously directing both the Tankery Program and the play at once.

Normally I’d have more questions but this is all a bit impromptu.”You nod, smiling. “Oh, don’t worry about it, Georgia.” You look over at the trashcan. “So, are you…?”She shakes her head. “Nah, I got my story.” She motions Stella to follow her. “We’re outta here!” They quickly leave the McDonalds.Well, that was certainly interesting.

You simply stand there, awkwardly.“AHAHA, you can’t be fecking serious!” says O’Brian. “We’re not fecking theatre cunts and we certainly ain’t gonna be going up there exposing ourselves to the audience!”“I didn’t say-“ you’re interrupted by further laughter.“Ahaha! That’s a really funny thing you just told us, Pool!” says O’Hara, wiping a tear out of her eye. “Really, it is! Ahahahaaa!” She slaps her knee and continues on laughing.“Oh, come on guys,” you say.Nancy comes up and says, “Maybe you can at least be extras, the play does call for some crowd scenes.”“Yeah right!” says O’Brian. “The only crowd you’re gonna see us in is the one that doesn’t involve embarrassing ourselves in front of hundreds of people!”O’Hara nods, calming down. “Besides, we ain’t exactly Allison Krauss and Gillian Welch. We can’t sing.”O’Brian says, “O’Hara probably sings like a fecking alarm.”O’Hara counters with, “You probably sing like a Siren.”“That don’t make any sense!”“Then why do the sailors kill themselves when they hear you?”> Persist> Move on> Other
>>28310476>> Move on
>>28310476> Move onWe aren't that desperate.
>>28310476>OtherWell, I guess if you're too scared to even try we'll find someone else...
>>28310476>> Move onLet's check out the Film Club.
>>28310476> Move on... well, at least we made her laugh. Let us never speak of this again.
>>28310476> Move on
>>28310476>> OtherI was just checking. If any of the hall monitors might be interested please let me know.
>>28310476>Well, if you're too chicken we can find someone else.
> Move on“Fine, fine, I see you can’t be swayed.”O’Hara waves you off. “Right, right, go on and bugger off. We got some parking meters to fix.” They both extend their batons then proceed back to beating the crap out of the parking meter.You sigh. That could’ve gone better.The three of you move on to greener pastures. Specifically to the Film Club building, the old Hollywood Video rental store. You often hear rumors about how it’s haunted. Real funny joke that, Hollywoods are so old they have ghosts in them. Real fucking funny.Of course, it’s time to consult the Film Club. You need someone to film the play, and perhaps they might serve as a crew for your tanks.You walk in and see that the place is actually pretty decently kept. The shelves are all moved to the back, leaving a very empty room with naught but the counter. Manning the counter is a very bored looking Sophomore.“Hey,” she greets you. “Can I help you?”You nod. “Yeah, my name’s Gertrude Pool, this is Nancy Whitmore and Carol Smith, we call her Kitten. We’re looking for cameras and people to record the upcoming school play?”She nods, skeptical of you. “I see. You’re the Director of the play then?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28310662>Polite>Hollywood VideoIt's been so long since I have read/heard that.
> Polite“Yeah, that’s me. Don’t mean to toot my own horn of course.” You offer your hand. “What’s your name?”She shakes it. “Josefina Vilsmaier. Head of the Film Club.”You nod. “Nice to meet you, Josefina. Actually, I was wondering, on top of recording our play, do you think you could maybe act or be an extra or something?”In her most indifferent tone, she says, “I only record plays. Occasionally I get to make a movie, but I only record plays.”You nod. “Ah, understandable.”She leans forward onto the counter. “Anyway, I already talked to Octavia about recording, I’ll have my girls set up in the audience and other places, we’ll leave no stone unturned.”Nancy says, “Great!”> Talk to Josefina> Talk to Nancy> Talk to Kitten> Other
>>28310871> Talk to Nancy
>>28310871>Talk to Josefina
>>28310871> Talk to JosefinaShe seems bored, I bet Tankery could fix that.
>>28310871>> Talk to Josefina
>>28310871> Talk to Josefina
>>28310871> Talk to JosefinaAny other places we can check for possible actors?
> Talk to Josefina“So, Josefina, been meaning to ask…”She looks at you skeptically. “You want to know whether the Hollywood is haunted?”Nancy and Kitten turns shade paler at that. You however, are the rock in the storm. You say, “Eh, sure.”Josefina shakes her head. “Nah, it’s not haunted. That’s just rumors Fredendall cooked up to keep people from using our services.”Fredendall. “She fucked you over too huh?”She shrugs. “Yep.” A Sophomore comes out of the backroom holding a camera. “Hey, Samantha.” She gestures over to Samantha for you. “Gertrude, that’s Samantha Peckinpah, one of the Film Club members. Samantha, Gertrude.”You nod, smiling. “Nice to meet you!”Samantha beams. “You’re directing the play right?”You nod, a bit violently. “Yep. Interested in auditioning?”Samantha shrugs. “Maaaaaaybe,” she drags out.You snap your fingers. “Good enough!”> Talk with Nancy> Talk with Kitten> Go out and see if anyone else wants to be a high school theatre actor.> Other
>>28311090> Talk with KittenAsk if she has any ideas for recruitment.I'm aware this is not her field of expertise, but sometimes, a different perspective...
>>28311090> OtherYou and your crew wouldn't happen to be interested in Tankery would you?
>>28311090> "You and your crew wouldn't happen to be interested in Tankery would you?"
>>28311090>> Go out and see if anyone else wants to be a high school theatre actor.Maybe the freshman might be interested
> Other“Say you girls wouldn’t happen to be interested in tanks would you?”Josefina shakes her head. “Nah, we’re not exactly keen on tanks, are we, Sam?”Samantha shakes her head. “Nope. Sorry we can’t be of more help but that’s the truth of it.”You nod. “Right, I ain’t gonna force you.”Josefina snaps her fingers, chuckling. “Hey, maybe if we want to make a movie about tanks, we’ll definitely call you, okay?”You all laugh a bit, even if it is somewhat at your own expense.With that, you leave the Hollywood Video. Okay, the place ain’t haunted at least.Kitten says, “Can we go home yet?”> Yeah> Yeah nah> Other
>>28311090Let's also ask what they did to earn Fredendall's ire.
>>28311270>Yeah nahYou're going to soak up this extra sunshine and you will ENJOY it!
>>28311270>>28311279This but check what time is it, maybe we can see if we can at least find someone else
>>28311270> OtherCall the crews, it's time we inform them of this GLORIOUS OPPORTUNITY TO BE IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
>>28311270> YeahMight as well cut our losses. Not every day can be a winner.
>>28311270> OtherIt's time to search for the ALMIGHTY DOLLA!
>>28311270>> YeahThis wasn't a very productive day at all, besides the interview.
>>28311279They probably cut her off in traffic or something. Fredendall's a vindictive cunt.
>>28311371This.It's time we switched tracks, Operation Bertram is currently a train wreck.
>>28311371Sure, can't go worse than this is.
>>28311270This (>>28311334)Wouldn't hurt to send out some feelers. A phonecall might suffice if we can't go walking all over the place.Also this (>>28311371) if we can spare the time to make some cash.
> Other“Not yet. Maybe we can find a way to raise some money.” You tap your chin, pondering on it. Think, think, let the music flow through your brain. Guitar, fiddle, all that kind of stuff.Wait a second, where the fuck is that music coming from?All of you look down the street, and as you see it, you walk down to see what all the fuss is about and where that music is coming from.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZw7DpKs910It’s Ashleigh Burnside and Cathy McDowell. Ashleigh’s playing the fiddle and Cathy’s backing her up on the guitar as they play to a group of people. Occasionally someone tosses in a dollar or two.Ashleigh looks up at you. “Hey, Gertrude! How’s your day going?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28311475> NeutralIt could definitely be better.
>>28311475>> NeutralIT'S SHIT!
> Neutral“It could be better,” you say.Cathy frowns. “Aw, that’s too bad.” They finish off their song, and the small crowd that has formed gives a polite applause and their hands in their money.Nancy asks, “Why are you out playing music?”Cathy says, “We’re trying to help you guys raise some money.” She looks down at the sorry looking amount of money in her guitar case. “We’re not exactly doing well on that front.”You raise an eyebrow. “Well where’s the rest of you? Can all of you play instruments?” A lightbulb is being constructed.Ashleigh nods. “Yeah, we’re actually a band. We don’t have a name though.”Cathy says, “However, I think Tara and the others are probably doing better on their side.”Tara says, “We’re not.” Cathy jumps at Tara, Andrea, and Tabitha appearing behind her. “We’re only managed to get 50 dollars.”Cathy looks down in her guitar case. “That looks to be about 50 dollars too.”You sigh. This day could definitely go better.Cathy scratches her chin. “Eh, I suppose we should just pack it in from here.” She looks over at you. “Unless you got something planned?”> “No, we need money, keep playing.”> “Yeah, pack it in.”> Other
>>28311618> “Yeah, pack it in.”Just bail on everything and do something fun with the rest of the day.
>>28311618> “No, we need money, keep playing.”Ask if you can help anyway you can. Trude has proven herself to be a hypeman during the fair maybe it could work now?> OtherAlso ask if they can help with the music for the play?
>>28311618> “Yeah, pack it in.”100 bucks isn't bad, but it's not the small fortune in cash we need to keep a Tankery Club going. Might as well try something else.Also, guys, next time we go Operation Betram. There's some prima donna Orchestra Kids whose faces we need to beat in.
>>28311618> “Yeah, pack it in.”I really don't think we should keep slave-driving them for so little.It's nice they want to help out so much though.
>>28311675Can we just ask them to help out with the music?Much easier then asking the orchestra kids
>>28311739That depends, are they skilled enough to produce Red Dawn's soundtrack?Because we don't have much to go on at this rate, and we need every little bit we can scavenge. We are not half-assing this, we owe Octavia that much for agreeing to put her past behind her and help us out.
>>28311783We should at least ask.
> “Yeah, pack it in.”“Yeah, we should pack it in from here, girls. You’ve had just as much luck as we did.”Cathy hands you the 100 dollars. “Sorry we couldn’t be more help to you, Gertrude.”> + 100 DOLLARSYou take it and wave it off. “Nah, it’s fine, girls. Actually, do you think you all could do me a big favor?”Cathy nods. “Sure, what do you need?”“Well,” you begin, “I am directing the fall play this year. We need music.”Tara raises an eyebrow. “You want a bluegrass band to provide music for Red Dawn: The Musical?”You nod. “Yes.”They all look at you like you’re crazy. Then Cathy says, “Eh, crazy enough to work I suppose.”You smile. Finally, some real progress. “Thanks, girls. You’ve been a real help!”Cathy smiles, nodding to you. “We do what we can!” She looks over at Kitten. “Kitten? Wow! You look adorable!”Kitten says, “Don’t start.”> Head home.> Talk to the Freshmen> Talk to Nancy> Talk to Kitten> Other
>>28311791Don't be surprised when they turn out to be good enough.
>>28311811>Don't be surprised when they don't turn out to be good enough.Gah.
>>28311810Hell's Bells, I hope all the other Ace quests aren't as difficult as Octavia's.As it is we have a massive chunk of time eaten up until October.
>>28311810> Talk to the Freshmen
>>28311810>> Talk to Kitten"But you are! I'm gonna take you home like your wanted!"
>>28311810>> Talk to the Freshmen
> Talk to the Freshmen“So, you’re a bluegrass band?”Cathy nods happily. “Ever since Middle School! We even played at our school dance once!”Tabitha bluntly states, “They threw tomatoes at us.”Cathy continues as if nothing was said, “It was all kinds of fun! You a fan of bluegrass?”You shake your head. “I don’t listen to bluegrass all that much. I’m a bit of a ‘whatever sounds good’ kind of music person. I don’t lock myself down to one taste.”Cathy nods. “Understandable! I sometimes listen to Queen every now and again.”“Queen is awesome.”“I know.”You check your watch. 5 O’Clock. Eh, good time as any to head home.You look over at Nancy, “Nancy, me and Kitten are gonna head from here.”Nancy nods. “Alright, I’ll see what I can do with what time is left today.”“You sure? I mean, you don’t have to.” Nancy simply waves you off, shaking her head.“No no, President. It is my duty to try and make things better for you. Go home and relax, I’ll take it from here.”You nod. “Okay, Nancy. Give me a call later, alright?”You and Kitten make your way home. All things considered, today went okay.Kitten notices that look on your face. “Everything okay, Trudy?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>bluegrassIsn't grass green? Grass isn't an instrument either.
>>28312010>> NeutralWish we could have done more
>>28312010>> NeutralCould've been better.
>>28312010>NeutralCould have gone better.
> Neutral“Well, Kitten, things could’ve gone a bit better.”Kitten shrugs. “Hey, at least we got things done, didn’t we?”“We didn’t get enough done, I don’t think.”It suddenly occurs to you that tomorrow is when the ITL Inspectors show up. Boy, that’s gonna be fun. At least you’ll be able to take your mind off the play.You look down at Kitten and sigh. “Cathy’s right though.”She looks up at you. “What’s she right about?”“You do look adorable.”“WHASA-“ She puffs her cheeks out, blushing. You can’t help but giggle a little. “Oh come on, Trudy! You know Anna only made me wear this stuff so I’d look like some Barbie Doll shit!”You say, “But you really do, Kitten. Honest.”Kitten sighs, crossing her arms. “Meh. I hate this outfit. It feels like the skirt is gonna blow up if the wind looks at me wrong and this bow looks so fucking stupid and, ugh I hate it, hate it, hate it!”“You’re totally gonna keep that outfit aren’t you.”“… yes.”
That's where we'll end it today folks, sorry for starting late AGAIN but I'll start tomorrow at the regularly scheduled time at 3 PM EST.No, I'm serious this time. I will.Follow the twitter at: https://twitter.com/AdBa19I'll see you next time.
