> Monday, September 9th, 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’s time for school again.You yawn as you toss your covers off and head straight for the bathroom. A nice shower is what you need to get through the day. Ain’t nobody gonna drag your spirit down. Your spirit is what’s needed today. Got a presentation for English, maybe some managing of the play too.And that’s not even mentioning the ITL Inspectors.With your shower done, you dry off, and get dressed in your Fall/Winter uniform. It doesn’t feel as hot as yesterday thankfully enough. You also quickly down your healthily balanced breakfast cereal.There’s a knock at the door. Surprise surprise, it’s Nancy. “President, you ready for school?”> Yes> No> Other
>>28322668> YesANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER TIME FOR TANKS
>>28322668> YesIndeed.Comfy time.
>>28322668>YesYOU MAKE MY AFTERNOON TOLERABLE, QM.
> YesYou open the door, and nod to your staff. “Yep! Let’s get this ball rolling!”The four of you head down the steps and down onto the street. As the car occasional car passes by, you encounter freshmen who’ve now adapted to the situation, or freshmen who haven’t. Those who have not still carry all their recommended textbooks to school, and those have adapted simply leave it all at home.It’s usually a slow but steady evolution anyway, you can’t blame them.Lisa looks over at Nancy. “So, how did yesterday go?”Nancy shrugs. “Oh, could’ve been better. All kinds of things happened really.”Lisa looks at you. “Speaking of which, you’re now directing a play, Boss?” You nod back at her. “Sure you can handle that?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28322858> BoastOf course, we're the SCP.
>>28322858> BoastTrude's in her element.
>>28322871We're fuckin' Mana Aida down to the freak strength.
> Boast“Course I can!” You pump your fist in the air, grinning. “It’s just some play, plus I really like theatre! I got experience with that kind of stuff!”Ramirez says, “Weren’t you a tree in last year’s play?”You sigh. “No. I was the puppeteer for the Audrey II puppet.” You shudder. NOT A FUN TIME. “But anyway, same difference.”Lisa shrugs. “Suppose I can’t argue with that logic. We’re still short on money though.”You wave her off. “Ah, I’m sure it’s fine. Once we get some money rolling in from the profits of the play, we’ll be right and dandy!”The campus entrance is chock full of students coming in, chatting before class starts, rushing off to class, or just goofing off.> Head to class> Talk to your staff> Walk around> Other
>>28323049>Head to classLet's actually try to stay awake this time.
>>28323049> Head to classneed to finish that presentation
>>28323049> Talk to your staff
>Head to classDue to me fucking up my sleep schedule, I'm finally awake for one of these! Hell yeah! Any Sentinels for sale?
So Schteel, when does the tanks list refresh?
>>28323049>> Once we get some money rolling in from the profits of the play, we’ll be right and dandy!”That's optimistic
>>28323158Especially since the damn thing is in October.
> Head to classMath, HAHA.… Not so haha, there’s a quiz today.“Righto, you know the drill, eyes on your own paper,” says the Professor as he passes the quiz out to all the students. You receive your copy, and immediately you’re daunted by the instructions.SHOW ALL WORKFuck.After all quizzes are passed out, the Professor sits down at his desk. “You may begin.”Immediately, the scratching of pens and pencils start, all except yours.You look down at your quiz. It’s a multiple choice, 20 question quiz. Simple enough. You can take the hit to your grade if you don’t show work. You look over at your neighbor. Asian kid.Oh fuck, she looks stumped. THAT’S WHEN YOU KNOW YOU’RE FUCKED.> Copy off of someone (Fast)> Guess EVERYTHING (Medium)> Try and do your best (Slow)> Hand the quiz in blank (You’re fucked anyway.)> Other
>>28323254>> Try and do your best (Slow)Cheating is for cowards. Let's do our BEST.
>>28323254> Try and do your best (Slow)Fucknuggets.
>>28323254>> Try and do your best (Slow)What kind of SCP cheats?
>>28323254> Try and do your best (Slow)
>>28323254Answer what we can, guess the rest. It's multiple choice, we have a one in four chance of getting it right. That's what my math teacher taught me.Actually, write that down as working.
>>28323254>Try and do your best (Slow)Honor and duty!
>>28323254> Try and do your best (Slow)Can't say you didn't try
>>28323254Who the fuck gets multiple-choice quizzes at this age? Doubly so in fucking Math.> Guess EVERYTHING (Medium)
>>28323254>> Try and do your best (Slow)when we're pressed for time> Guess EVERYTHING (Medium)
>>28323254we try and do our best. Trudy is too much like my old captain to cheat.
>>28323398Sophmore year math is usually something like Trig/Geometry or Algebra II anyway, right?Multiple choice problems on the former seem counter-intuitive.
>>28323398You'd be surprised, the final test in maths had a twenty questions multiple choice.Although I was only doing Maths A, which is the easiest maths that isn't a special needs class.
> Try and do your bestWhatever. You’re not good at math, hell you’re not even particularly smart anyway. BUT A STUDENT COUNCIL PRESIDENT DOES NOT CHEAT OR GIVE UP.You work intensely on the first question. You’re not entirely sure what the first question even is about but fuck it you’re going to prove the shit out of that bitchass problem.Second question, solve for the 3rd side of this punyass triangle? Simple as shit. Pythagorean theorem motherfuckers. A squared + B squared = C squared punkass bitch.Third question. Ha, circumference of the circle on this cylinder? YOU’RE ALREADY DEAD.Fourth question. What’s this I hear about finding the missing side on this isosceles triangle? BITCH.All the rest of the questions fall into place for you somehow. The rest of the quiz is about easy enough to guess through. With that, you have a minute to spare before class is over.Ha, punkass bitch quiz. You probably aced it.Chemistry thankfully has no quizzes, but of course it’s still pretty damn boring. Nonetheless, the demonstration of base-acid neutralization was kind of cool. Kind of.English class is your real target though. You got that presentation with DeWitt and everything and…Where the fuck is DeWitt.You sigh and sit down. Maybe she’s just running late or something.The Professor says, “Alright, who wants to present first?”> Raise your hand. Lets get this shit over with.> Don’t raise your hand. Wait until called.> Volunteer to go last.> Other
>>28323449I don't think I ever saw multiple choice for anything that got graded or even looked at past elementary school, in any class.
>>28323329>>28323329AFTER A THOUSAND LESSONS ONE ONLY SEES MATH.
>>28323481> Volunteer to go last.Simply say that your partner isn't here yet, and you want to give her a chance to arrive before doing it.
>>28323481>Don’t raise your hand. Wait until called.Let's wait for our partner...unless she's still sick and decided to stay at home.If she gets here ask her if she wants us to do the presentation on our won, for courtesy's sake
>>28323481> Don’t raise your hand. Wait until called.Dammit Dewitt
>>28323481We raise our hands, and apologise for DeWitts absence but the Flu's propably got her down.We set examples.
>>28323501ONE OR A THOUSAND, I WILL SOLVE THEM ALL
>>28323481> Don’t raise your hand. Wait until called.No attracting any attention to ourselves whatsoever.
>>28323481> Don’t raise your hand. Wait until called.
>>28323497English was the worst offender, although it made the most sense in context. You needed to read a text and then answer multiple choice questions on the text. Thats about half of the test. Then there was an hour to write an essay or short story that followed the standard structure of whatever you wrote. And then there's a section for written answers about grammar, spelling and writing conventions.
>>28323597Man, American school sounds easy as fuck
> Don’t raise your hand. Wait until called.Fuck it. Maybe she’s late. She’ll arrive eventually right?The first few presentations are relatively fun. There’s a presentation on the martial art of Taekwondo, another on poetry, boxing. However, none of them quite last more than five minutes. You politely applaud, along with the rest of the class, the presentation on the study of the Sacred Band of Thebes.“Right,” says the Professor as he files out the grades. “DeWitt and Pool… Uh, Miss Pool.” You stand up, might as well get this over with. “No, you don’t have to stand up. Just give me your presentation details and all your written stuff.”Oh. That was easy.Too easy.> “Why?”> “Okay.”> Other
>>28323640>“Why?”>something something flu?
>>28323640why?skeptical as fuck.
>>28323597In NZ we had to read a text and answer multiple choice questions, and then write 3 essays on a book, movie, and poem we had read during the year.It was the gayest shit ever
>>28323640>> “Why?”Question everything!
>>28323630I'm Australian, actually. Queensland in particular.
>>28323640> “Why?”I DEMAND ANSWERS
>>28323481>Basic geometryWhy is my 4th grade math mixed in with a high school quiz?
>>28323709Still though, multiple choice and an hour for an essay?We had to write 4 hours worth of an analysis about a fucking Romantic poem, and that shit had better been in depthHaven't had a multiple choice test since elementary school
>>28323640> “Okay.”Just go with it
>>28323736I once had to analyse the fuck out of some German guys poetry. showed up drunk as a skunk, aced it anyway.
>>28323691Three essays? At once? At the end of the year?I could understand if it was right after you read the stuff. Also, it's a little surprising that they wouldnt grill you on grammar and shit.>"Why?"They were right about how fast you post. That's scary. It's like you're focusing your attention on the thread and not playing World of Tanks between posts.
>>28323640>"Okay.”Let's not ask for any details in front of the whole class, we can do that after the lesson
>>28323736I have multiple choice shit in Uni on the occasion, but that is generally because the professor is lazy and if they can accomplish 70-80% of the test via scantron, they will.
> “Why?”You walk over and hand the Professor your written material. “Uh, can I ask why I don’t have to present today?”The Professor takes your material and starts grading it right before your eyes. “Well, DeWitt’s still out with the flu I’m sure you know. But, also, she’s transferred to a different English class.”You slowly nod. “Okay then.” You quickly return to your seat. Not gonna press that further.But DeWitt transferring to a different English? That’s weird as fuck.Kind of understandable in context maybe, but still. Why would she just transfer out? Is it because of tanks? It’s probably because of tanks.You sigh as the last of the presentations continue on.ALARMBUT ENOUGH OF THAT, TIME FOR LUNCH> Find your staff> Head straight to lunch> Other
>>28323770>German guys poetryEichendorff by any chance?That guy's poems were always lame as shit
>>28323691>a book, movie, and poemOf your choice?
>>28323736I dunno man. They gave us three pages and we had to use all three of those pages if we wanted a good mark. An hour really isn't that long. Also, my handwriting is utter shit.
>>28323801>transfer out because tonksman, they're thin-skinned.
>>28323801find staffI think DeWitts avoiding us>>28323819No idea who it was, but he was a major league drug addict, so thats my theory one why I aced
>>28323801>Find your staff
>>28323801> Find your staff
>>28323801>> Head straight to lunchOur Staff know to find us there.
>>28323831We have to induce a long-term tankery flashback to get her on our teamIs there a PsyOps club?
>>28323801> Find your staffI guess she didn't want to be friends with us.
>>28323865Honestly at this point I'm not sure what flashback I'm dreading more; Ace team tonk history or what happened in middle school to Kitten.
>>28323801> Head straight to lunchThey've been there already the rest of the time.
>>28323881>Ace team tonk history or what happened in middle school to Kitten>Remember, X years ago, when we were in middle school?>I was there last night..
>>28323824no, it's the teacher's choice. The good thing was that the people marking the Exams never read the book or poem, so you can bullshit your way through it.
>>28323881Kitten is fine. Say "tanks" near the Aces and they lock up. They are the worse off
>>28323947Of course the Aces were more damaged by it, but the thought of Kitten in pain burns holes in my heart.
>>28323928>the teacher's choiceAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
> Find your staff“Hey, Nancy!” you say as you approach your staff in the halls.Nancy smiles. “Hey, President! Not going to the line ahead of us?”You shake your head. “Nah, I got some thinking to do.”All of your take your place in, and as you wait, you think. Thinking on it, the Aces’ history with tanks has to be something tragic. Maybe someone got killed, or horribly maimed or injured. What could have happened that could turn them off from tanks?Hm. It’s an interesting thought, you almost feel like a conspiracy theorist.You didn’t even notice you got your lunch and you sat down at your table with a nice plate of rice curry. The rice is less rice and more… paste.Jesus Christ how horrifying.Lisa says, “We had a quiz in our math class this morning, was pretty easy. What about you, Boss? You have a quiz in your class?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28323997> BoastWe aced that quiz hard.
>>28323997Fucking Math> Neutral
>>28323997>BoastFucked that bitchass test UP fo shizzle
>>28323997>was pretty easyOh, good for Lisa then.> Polite
>>28323997> NeutralIt's MATH.
>>28323997neutral.cuz boasting is gonna bit us in the ass
> Neutral“Yep.” You shrug. “I think I did pretty well, especially since I didn’t study.”Lisa rolls her eyes. “I suppose that’s what happens when your time is taken up by tanks, plays, and other such nonsense.”Nancy says, “Now now, Lisa. You can’t fault Gertrude for slipping on her academics. This is important stuff!”You dig into your rice paste. Ugh. Lunch food. Why is it suddenly worse now? Fuck it, whatever. You need to eat what you can for PE anyway. You briefly wonder what Kitten’s doing right now. Then you remember the Sewing Club decided on visiting her during lunch. You chuckle a bit at the thought of it.Then you remember Anna has a boyfriend. That came right the fuck out of nowhere.Then you also remember tanks. “Oh, yeah, guys. You don’t mind staying after today with me right? The ITL inspectors are supposed to arrive today.”Nancy nods. “No trouble at all, President.”> Converse casually> Talk tanks> Other
>>28323997>Maybe someone got killed, or horribly maimed or injured.It's acknowledged as a possibility in canon, too.
>>28324184> Converse casuallytime for tanks is later!
>>28324200Nonsense anon, tankery is 100% safe!
>>28324200>>28324213We really need to find out what happened if we can, next time we get the chance for a free action.
>>28324184> Converse casually
>>28324228If someone was killed or otherwise maimed I assume there would be some form of article about it.Would we easily be able to find out what middle school they went to through records we have access to as SCP?
>>28324184>Talk tanksFor having our first match really fucking soon our team knows decisively little about tanks
>>28324184>> Talk tanks
>>28324184> Converse casually>>28324228Hell no, right now we need more money, not pissing off the Aces.We really need to upgrade the Stuart and Churchill once and for all.
>>28324261We already found the middle-school from that easy article the Schteel gave us. >>28324282I'm not saying we ask anyone. Just run some searches online and see what we find. And we can upgrade one of them right now, we just haven't done it yet.
>>28324261>If someone was killed or otherwise maimed I assume there would be some form of article about it.Speaking of the internet, are there any recordings of Heinlein Academy in battle?Do they have a blog?Knowing how they usually operate could give us an edge
>>28324325We literally don't know a fucking thing about tanking and the enemy commander's nickname is Ace.We're pretty boned. We really should look up some strategies. Maybe tonight at Kitten's.
> Converse casually“So, how are you guys been doing so far in your classes?”Lisa says, “A’s across the board.”Ramirez nods. “Same.”Nancy nods as well. “Me too.”You look at all three of them. There’s no way in hell YOUR grades are as good as theirs. Lisa looks at you skeptically. “What about your grades, Boss?”You cough. “Oh, you know. Good. Great! Splendid!”…Lisa says, “You’re not fooling anyone.”You sigh. “Look, I’m not an overachiever like you guys.” You thump yourself on the chest. “I am just a regular student like the rest of my constituency!”Lisa says, smirking, “I’m sure the regular constituency can do basic math.”“Oh, don’t start.”ALARMTIME FOR PE. You say goodbye to your staff and find yourself again in your school swimsuit. Time for swimming!That reminds you, you have to teach Kitten how to swim.The coach looks at you. “Pool, you’re pretty good at swimming. Mind helping some of the freshmen out?”> Sure Coach> Nah Coach> Other
>>28324348>We're pretty bonedAnd the underdog always wins!let's not try to prepare, that would ruin our advantage
>>28324282We need to convert ou bergepanzer into something usable first. So the rifle team can use something to practice on
>>28324359Yes help the freshmen. Not really sure from your choices.
>>28324359>> Sure Coach
>>28324359> Sure Coach
>>28324359Be already in the water with a Freshman struggling in your arms."What?"
>>28324359sure coachit'll propably be our freshmen
>>28324360What's the worst that could happen?
>>28324443Dude, exactly!Even if we get crubstomped, we'll grow on the experience and win next time for sure
>>28324314So we do, but we don't have enough money to upgrade them both, besides which I want that Mark IV upgrade for the Churchill.>>28324381Hell no, we're short on money as it is. I'm sure the rifle team can live without a tank for a few more day, not to mention a recovery vehicle might come in handy in the future.
>>28324359> Sure CoachWe have a reputation to uphold!
>BergepanzerWhich one? Hopefully not the Leopard 1 based one.
>>28324348We're a rookie team against a veteran tankery program of a goddamn military academy. Of course we're going to lose.The best thing we can do is learn from our experience and not get curbstomped too badly.
>>28324480We have the dragon wagon for that
>>28324359>Sure coachand this is where I pass out. At 0750 local time.
So guys, I'm just wondering, what's the Schürzen Kit?
> Sure CoachYou’re not looking forward to getting drowned by struggling freshmen, but hell, can you really refuse the coach?That same bespectacled freshmen you keep encountering in this gym class ends up as your de facto student for the day. You also have a lot of other freshmen to tutor, but they pick up on the concept of “don’t hold your fucking breath underwater” really quick. They’re all treading water and swimming at reasonable speeds by the time you’re done with them.This particular freshman though…“Please stop trying to drown me,” you say. She pants as she recovers from yet another terrible experience of trying to tread water in the deep end of the pool.“S-Sorry,” she says in between gasps. She spits out some chlorine filled water. “J-J-Just. Don’t know how to swim really.”“Clearly.” You toss the freshman’s arm over your shoulder and start paddling for the edge of the pool. “Maybe we should start you back on the breast stroke.”She nods. “Fine with me.”“What’s your name anyway? I see you a lot in this class.”The freshmen says, “Wilfred Hanna. My friends call me Willie.”You nod back. “Gertrude Pool. Sophomore Class President.”> Keep trying to teach Hanna> Let her figure it out on her own> Other
>>28324538Dragon wagon?And we still don't have enough money, the SU-122 is only going to take a few more days.
>>28324553>> Keep trying to teach Hanna
>>28324553>“don’t hold your fucking breath underwater”...wat.Isn't holding your breath underwater kinda the thing you're supposed to do?> Keep trying to teach Hanna
>>28324553> Keep trying to teach HannaI'm liking where this is going.
>>28324480So do I, but we still need to figure out the Aces or we're never going to get them on our side.
>>28324553>Keep trying to teach Hanna
>>28324569We had the bergepanzer and another recovery machine when we were finding tanks
>>28324595Yes. When you are drowning. They are learning to swim though.
>>28324553>Keep trying to teach HannaTrude no give up!
>>28324612We have time, plenty of time, our business with Octavia isn't going to be finished until October.Meanwhile we're short on money, and the tank list refreshes tomorrow to boot. It is much more pressing.
>>28324671We're not going to make 20k+ like we did before in the little time we have at night. And that's generally what we're seeing for decent/good tanks.We're also tapped out on crews for the moment.
>>28324637The Dragon Wagon is a huge flatbed truck. Google it. You are currently saying that a "railcar" is a recovery vehicle.
> Keep trying to teach Hanna“Okay, the important part of swimming is kicking and rhythm. You need both to propel yourself. Keep your body straight, and you’ll go straight.”Hanna nods. “Alright. I got this.” She kicks herself off the edge of the pool and promptly sinks into the water.Well, that could’ve gone worse you suppose.You quickly dive down and drag back to the edge. The minute she surfaces she starts flailing her arms, coughing and gasping for air until that one particular moment.You look down and see that her hand is firmly grasping your tit.Hanna has stopped her panicking to observe this, then awkwardly look at you. She quickly withdraws her hand, blushes, and grins nervously. “Ehehehe… my bad.”Freshmen.You hit the showers and start washing away the chlorine. It’s all good, but you did notice that Joanna is still absent from the class. Maybe she’s ditched the class like DeWitt did. That’d be a real bummer.Hanna walks up to you as you shower, towel wrapped around her body. “Hey, uh, Gertrude. Sorry for uh…” she scratches the back of her head, blushing. “You know.”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28324764> BoastWe've suffered worse! Just yesterday, in fact.
>>28324764>BoastI'll return the favour someday :3
>>28324764>> PoliteI smell another relationship coming on.
>>28324827I only want it if it gets us another tank crew.
>>28324764>Boast"It's like saying hello 'round these parts"
> Polite“Oh, it’s fine, Willie. Happens to the best of us.” You dump some shampoo on your head and start scrubbing deep.Hanna says, “I guess.” She seems to try and deliberate over her words, then says, “Say, you’re running the Tankery team right?”You nod. “That’s right. Why?”Hanna sighs, scratching her chin. “Well, I was just wondering, I mean uh…” she absentmindedly waves her hand around. “Uh… tanks.”You nod again, smiling. “Yeah, tanks.”“To be frank, I don’t know anything about tanks! Uh… could you maybe, uh…” She sighs, burying her face in her hands. “Could you do me a favor?”> Sure> What’s the favor?> Nah> Other
>>28324909> What’s the favor?Never agree to a favor without first checking what said favor is.
>>28324909>> What’s the favor?Ehhhh?
>>28324909>Depends on the favor. Something of a sexual nature?
>>28324909>> What’s the favor?
>>28324909> What’s the favor?Jesus, we need to introduce this girl to Kitten. She probably needs friends too judging by this.
>>28324705Which is why we should devote more time to earning that money.And we can always save the tanks for later until we get crews for them.
> What’s the favor?“What do you need from me?”Hanna looks around, then says, “Well… I’m a big fan of animation, okay?”You nod. “Okay…?”Hanna continues and says, “And I know this school does have an Animation Club, but, they’re not accepting new members.”You scratch your chin, you got this figured out. “You want me to convince the Animation Club to let you in.”She nods violently, a twinkle in her. “Oh yes! Yes! If you could, recommend me or something, or do… I don’t know, SOMETHING to get me in their club, that’d be great!”Truth be told, you know nothing about the Animation Club. Hell, there are rumors that they stalk Marshall Ney Forest in search of souls to consume, which should really tell you something about what kind of people they are.Hanna looks at you hopefully. “So, will you do it?”> Sure> Can’t. Too busy.> Other
>>28324909>SureAnything you want~
>>28325008>OtherWhy aren't they accepting new members?
>>28325008>> SureI'll give it a try.
>>28325008>OtherThose people are not your friends. Do you want to be in a club with people who don't want youJoin us instead, we'll accept you how you are
>>28325008> OtherIs she SURE she wants to join the animation club? Not a nice, calm one like theater or something?
>>28325026I'd also like to know this, maybe they have a good reason?
>>28325008> Can’t. Too busy.
>>28325008>> SureWe help all freshman
>>28325008> Can’t. Too busy.THAT Animation Club? Sweet Zombie Jesus no.
>>28325008>> Can’t. Too busy.
>>28325008> Can’t. Too busy.There are just some things you just can't help with.
>>28325070I think that was the Anime club, not the animation club.
>>28325008> OtherOnly if there's time to spare; no promises.Is there any particular reason she wants to join?Also, this (>>28325026).
>>28325026I like this.Let's not reject her outright
>>28325008> Can’t. Too busy.Wait, this is the club that's permanently traumatised Nancy right?NOPE.jpg
>>28325008otheris there a difference between the Anime and the Animation club?because it could be that the animation club makes short cartoons and stuff.it could be another anti-fredenfall ally
>>28325110We don't know that, the anime club and the animation club might be too totally different things
> Can’t. Too busy.You hesitate, then say. “I can’t, I’m sorry. I got a lot on my plate right now.”Hanna looks crushed, but nods, biting her lip. “Okay,” she says quietly. She retreats to another corner of the showers.Oh god, you don’t need this shit today. NOT TODAY.History goes by without a fuss, just going over some of Ancient Islam, nothing too special.Theatre as well, surprisingly goes by relatively well. You actually managed to sleep through it without nobody asking you to do party quirks. Roberta must still be passive-aggressively ignoring everyone, and you’re completely okay with that. French as well goes by without a hitch.ALARMSchool’s over. Where to now?> Meet your staff> Head to the Sports Warehouse> Other
>>28325172>> Head to the Sports Warehouse
>>28325172> Meet your staffEh, we could clarify with Nancy whether the Anime Club and Animation Club are different or one and the same.
>>28325172>> Head to the Sports WarehouseDid we have to outright reject her? If it turns out the animation club and the anime club are totally different things....
>>28325156>>28325163Welp, I might have overreacted.Then again, the rumors might have been true for once.
>>28325172> Head to the Sports Warehouse
The anime club is officially known as the Japanese Cultural Media Club. This was known two threads ago.
>>28325172meet with staff.>>28325233the entirely different words should have tipped you off.Anime is japanese animated series.Animation is the process of creating said stuff.
>>28325172>meet staffPoor girl. didn't have to outright refuse her. Should have just said "We'll see" or something
I demand a recount!
>>28325262Look, I freaked out ok?People that nuts should belong in asylums.
>>28325258Welp, great.>>28325233Actually, by what's been going on in the threads we should go investigate every club with weird stories and it'll turn out Frendendall started the rumors.
Didn't 'other' win? And they were almost all not brushing her off, combined with the 'sure' votes completely outnumbering 'no'.
>>28325292Even the Japanese Cultural Media Club?
>>28325258Goddamit, would have helped for someone to have mention this beforehand. Most of those that said nope I believed did so since they thought it was the anime club.We could have we recruited another club/
>>28325317Yeah, several of the 'no' votes explicitly associated them with the otakus.
>>28325309No, because we know they're weird. Bad analogy incoming. It's kinda like the difference between kids making up stories and seeing that the neighbors dog is certifiable.
>>28325309I still think we should give the otakus a chance, but hey-o
>>28325295I see 5 votes for "Sure", 6 for "Nope" and 7 for "Other"
>>28325392I'm pretty sure this is because "Other" doesn't necessarily constitute the same vote. There were a lot of different suggestions after all.But what's done is done, I'm sure we'll get another chance to meet Hanna and say that we've reconsidered.
>>28325392Schteel gives us like 5~ to vote and then gets writing.If we're late...
> Head to the Sports WarehouseYour staff will probably meet you at the Sports Warehouse anyway. It’s time to meet the ITL Inspectors. Maybe they’ve already arrived. True to your word, as you walk up to the Sports Field, you see Captain Dubois’ Sheridan tank parked next to a new tank. A very Abrams looking tank. Interesting.You walk up closer, and see Captain Dubois and another woman, dressed in a green dress uniform. Her appearance suggests she’s Japanese.Captain Dubois notices you and waves, “Hey! Gertrude!”You walk up to the two of them. “Hey, Captain.” You look over at the new lady, curiously. She smiles at you. She must be nice.Captain Dubois gestures to her. “Gertrude Pool, this is Captain Ami Chouno, JSDF.”Captain Chouno nods and offers her hand. “Pool-san. It’s very nice to meet you. Captain Dubois tells me much about you.”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28325373C'mon, man, they could potentionally be a great tank crew>Few of them, social outcastMeans they get along really well, perfect for working together in a cramped tank>Few other friendsMeans that if we win them over they will be loyal and try hard to not disappoint us>Lack of understanding of social normsAnnoying and obnoxious, but potentially hilarious
>>28325434>PoliteNew face, after all.
>>28325434> PoliteWell, that was unexpected.Next thing you know we'll be going up against Oorai.
>>28325437Your seem to be basing your continued championing of the otakus and how funny they may potentially be. That's really not IC. >>28325434> Polite

>>28325437>Actively antagonizes our second in commandno
>>28325466Oh dear god please no. We can't stand against Nishizumi style plot armor!
>>28325431But the Sure votes were a lot earlier than the No votes...and again, 3 of the 6 no votes were clearly assuming it was the otaku club.
>>28325437>Means they get along really well, perfect for working together in a cramped tankToo bad they're annoying and obnoxious.>Means that if we win them over they will be loyal and try hard to not disappoint usToo bad they're annoying and obnoxious, not to mention we're not anywhere near guaranteed these traits and probably just fine by themselves.>Annoying and obnoxious, but potentially hilariousAnnoying and obnoxious are not amusing traits.
>>28325434>Pool-sanI think I'm going to have an autism attack
>>28325434>Polite"All good, I hope."I admit, did not see her comingThis pleases me
>>28325509>>28325487>>28325467Well, guess the majority has spoken.
>>28325434Man, this is completely fucking random, but now I wanna see what a grudge match between a Japanese Tankery Team and a South Korean Team would go.I'm Korean.
>>28325431Intent should still be most important. Even if it was cut, conveniently, right at >>28325085, 2 of the 5 nos were assuming it was the otaku club, and there were a combined 7 votes to agree or try to talk about it.
>>28325566You are the worst Asians
>>28325566Them's fighting words. though I'm pretty sure South Korea used Japanese tanks during WW2 considering they were part of the Japanese Empire at the time.Unless if you mean the professional modern era tank fighting.
> PoliteYou shake her hand. “It’s nice to meet you too, Captain Chouno.”Dubois smiles, crossing her arms. “Ami here is one of the ITL’s Chief Inspectors, she also does a lot of instructing from time to time.” She goes down to your level. “She actually taught the girls at Ooarai, the ones that pulled out the Tournament from under Black Forest Peak’s feet.”You nod. Some of those words are familiar.Chouno speaks in surprisingly good English and says, “I did not actually do much. It was all in the Nishizumi style after all.”Dubois shrugs, smirking. “Pfft. You don’t do much of anything, Ami.” Chouno playfully punches Dubois in the arm. “Anyway, Pool, the inspectors are fixing up the tanks, if you’d follow me.”Dubois leads the both of you into the Warehouse where, true to her word, a lot of ITL officials are fitting your tanks with all sorts of computers, carbon lining, and other things that you don’t particularly understand. A couple of questions are in order here.> “What do you think of our line-up?”> “So how exactly does the judging system work?”> “Is this stuff fool proof?”> Other
>>28325609S. Korea would probably have a ton of WWII US tanks from the Korean conflict.
>>28325634> “So how exactly does the judging system work?”Can we game it?
>>28325634> “What do you think of our line-up?”Eh, it's meta but we already know the answer to the other two questions.
>>28325634> “What do you think of our line-up?”> “Is this stuff fool proof?”First our lineup, then to make sure we won't end up as smears on our tanks.
>>28325634>“Is this stuff fool proof?”We told the press that it is so might as well double check
>>28325634>> “Is this stuff fool proof?”
>>28325634> “What do you think of our line-up?”> “Is this stuff fool proof?”
>>28325634>“What do you think of our line-up?”
>>28325634> “Is this stuff fool proof?”then> “What do you think of our line-up?”we need to preempt any faggotry from Fredenfal
>>28325634> “Is this stuff fool proof?”> OtherDo we retain these stuff pre-conversion?Like, installing them on the Bergepanzer and it'll still work the same even after it's converted to a StuG-III.
>>28325634You know what just dawned on me?We'll have to fight Ouarai, sooner or later
> “What do you think of our line-up?”> “Is this stuff fool proof?”“So, it’s all safe right?”Ami nods. “Tankery rounds are designed not to penetrate.” She lifts up a 75mm round meant for your Sherman with surprising ease and shows you the bottom, revealing a small gray little box. “When the shell hits the tank, this little chip on the bottom of the shell sends a signal to the judging computer implanted in the tank, which instantly calculates penetrating damage, spalling, etc.”Dubois adds, “Plus, the tanks are fitted with uparmored crew compartments, including a special carbon lining which softens the impact of shells in the event that a shell DOES penetrate. It’s also a shock absorber incase the tank does a flip.”You nod, scratching your chin. “Okay, I think I understand.”Dubois notes, “While the safety system does work. Accidents can occur. ITL usually has ambulances on standby in case something happens.”Ami nods, smiling. “So, yes, it is safe.”You cross your arms, looking down at your line-up. “Good, good.”Ami says, “If you’re wondering, yes, your line-up is incredibly unique.”Dubois says, “It’s versatile is what I’d say.”Ami nods, agreeing with her. “Versatile. I like that.”With that in mind, your staff walks in. “Hey, President!” says Nancy. And they’re accompanied by Octavia.> Ask: “So how exactly does the judging system work?”> Talk to your staff> Talk to Octavia> Other

>>28325850> Ask: “So how exactly does the judging system work?”
> Talk to Octavia“Octavia, what you are doing here?”Octavia sighs, shrugging. “Well, I came by to see your line-up.” She looks at the line up of tanks. The GMC, the KV-1S, the Panther, the Sherman, the Stuart, the S35, and the Churchill I. Expressionless, she positively trots over to the Panther, then feels the cold iron of the front glacis plate. You could almost see a smile on her face.You walk over to her, “Octavia?”Octavia coughs, clearing her throat and taking her hand away from the tank. “Uh… yeah. The initial production Panthers were kinda shit, but I’m sure you can make lemons out of lemonade here. If you’re smart that is.”You nod. “I am, in fact, smart.” You cross your arms. “Unlike your former teammates.”She says, “Look, they’ll come around. Maybe later than sooner. Just give them some time.”Well, can’t argue with that.> Keep talking to Octavia> Talk to your staff> Ask: “So how exactly does the judging system work?”> Other
>>28326044> Keep talking to OctaviaHopefully they didn't give her shit about things too.
>>28326044> Keep talking to Octavia

>>28326044>> Keep talking to Octavia
>>28326044> Keep talking to OctaviaI'm wondering how the conversation went after they found out.
>>28326044> Keep talking to OctaviaApologize if they went off on her after you talked to them, while you're confident you were in the right and they did initiate things, it was still fairly confrontational after all.
>>28326044> Keep talking to Octavia> Ask: “So how exactly does the judging system work?”IC knowledge needed. Like, throwing a track off and setting the engine on fire is enough for that white flag to pop.In which case, if the speccing of the Churchill won't make it in time for the Heinlein match, we may have to temporarily shuffle a couple of crews into the working tanks.
>>28326044>> Ask: “So how exactly does the judging system work?”> Keep talking to Octavia
> Keep talking to OctaviaAs you and Octavia talk, the Captains show off the judging system to your staff.“When a penetrating shot either ‘kills’ the crew or renders the tank completely inoperable, a little white flag will pop up.” Ami hits a button, and like that, the M4’s little white flag pops up out of the top of the turret. > KO: M4 SHERMAN (COMP. SPEC.)“These flags are fitted on all sides of the tank as well, in case of flipping.”Dubois adds, “Mobility and weaponry kills also count towards the judging system as well.” She quickly disassembles a tread off your Sherman and tosses it aside.> MOBILITY KILL: M4 SHERMAN (COMP. SPEC.)Ami presses another button, and a puff of smoke bursts out of the barrel.> WEAPONRY KILL: M4 SHERMAN (COMP. SPEC.)Octavia nods. Of course she’d know this stuff. You say, “So, Octavia, I did talk to your former teammates the other day and well…”Octavia interrupts you. “They didn’t take it lightly, did they?”“No.”Octavia crosses her arms. “Well, I don’t blame them. Michelle and Wendy especially.” She leans back on the Panther, and you do as well.You ask, “So, what exactly happened?” Octavia looks at you. “Not to say-“ you immediately regret this decision. “I mean-, I’m just curious- you don’t have to… say anything.”Octavia looks forward at the wall, away from you. “We fired a shot we shouldn’t have, someone got hurt. That’s why we’re so keen on not doing Tankery again.”You’re humbled for a few seconds, then say, “I see. Still a sensitive topic?”“Yes.”> Continue talking with Octavia> Talk with the Captains> Talk with your staff> other
>>28326290> Talk with the Captains
>>28326290> Talk with the CaptainsWell shit.No wonder Michelle took it hard, she's the gunner after all.
>>28326326any wrong shot can mess up a gunner.I'm just glad that when it happened to my tank nobody got hurt and we had a funny story afterwards.>>28326290> Continue talking with Octaviaat least apologise for bringing it up> Talk with the Captains farm general advise from them
>>28326379I support this
>>28326308Then do so now, no excuses for laziness
>>28326290>Talk to the captains Apologize to Octavia wouldn't hurt. Probably.
> Talk with the Captains“So, overall, what do you think you two?”Dubois and Chouno look at each other then back at you. Dubois says, “Well, I’m confident in your ability to learn and to grow as a Tank Commander, Pool.”Chouno nods. “Likewise. I firmly believe that greatness can come from small things.”You nod back. “Really.”Dubois shrugs. “Well, if you want us to blunt, your line up is incredibly… difficult to describe. On the one hand, you’ve got about an even mixture of tank classes, but on the other hand… they’re all very unique.”Something suddenly occurs to Dubois then and there. “Oh right!” she says. “I completely forgot. Since you are the Commander of the Tankery program, I figure I should teach you a couple of tricks, if you’re willing of course.”> LEARN TACTICAL MANUEVERS> Y/N?
>>28326452YWhy wouldn't we?
>>28326452> Y TACTICAL MANEUVERING

>>28326452>Fuck yeaWhy would we pick no?
>>28326452>YHave our tank leaders learn them as well. If you have to get the rifle team who man the GMC or Bergepanzer
> YYou nod. “I’m willing!”“Alright,” says Dubois. “Ami, if you got some tricks to explain, you should throw them in too.”Ami nods. “Of course.”> Note: You can detect enemy tactical maneuvers if you’ve already learned them.> TACTICAL MANUEVER LEARNED!> Nishizumi Hook> A very quick charge to the side of an enemy tank then round their front, and then powerslide around to their other slide, feinting the enemy tank’s turret traverse for a point blank shot to their side armor or their turret ring.> TACTICAL MANUEVER LEARNED!> Sidewinder> Zig zag your tank around while simultaneously varying speed to fool your enemy’s aim. > TACTICAL MANUEVER LEARNED!> The Honorable Approach> Ram the enemy tank.You quickly jot all that down in your notebook and make a mental note to go over the specifics of those later.Dubois smiles. “Hope you learned something today, tomorrow’s gonna be a real treat, especially with the judging equipment in!”You nod. “Yeah, thanks, you two!”> Talk to your staff> Continue talking to the Captains> Talk to Octavia> Other
>>28326608>> Talk to your staffSee if we can get the Stuart fixed for tomorrow.
>>28326608>Talk to Octavia"You got some experience with tankery, in your opinion, can love bloom, even on the battlefield?"

>>28326702I think it'd be harder in practice than in theory.
>>28326725depends on the drivers skill, and what the tanks can handle.
> Talk to your staff“How you guys doing?”Nancy says, “The judging system is so sophisticated! I still feel a little nervous though.”Lisa pats Nancy’s shoulder. “Ah, don’t be a wuss, Nancy. It’ll be fine! It’s not like anyone ever died in a tank!”…“It’s not like anyone ever died doing Tankery!” she quickly interjects.Ramirez says, “Nice save.”You put your hands on your hips, looking at your tank. “Well, tomorrow we got Tankery practice, girls. I’m sure we’ve got a lot more to learn about Tanking and stuff like that.”Lisa nods. “Anything you want to get done?”> Yes (Specify)> No> Other
>>28326784Yes.Fix Stuart. See if we can hit things with the guns if that's what we're talking about.
>>28326784>YesLet's read up a bit about tanks, like famous tactics, the most common tanks and their weaknesses, a bit of general knowledge can never hurt.
>>28326784>Yes Fix stuart and talk to Hanna about her think with the animation club
>>28326784Seconding this (>>28326812). I got a feeling we're about to be thrown into a practice match against one another, so another CompSpec tank is a must.Might pose a bit of a problem since the Rifle Club is currently without a tank, and the Freshmen will have to make do with the Churchill's... temperament.Crew shuffling for just this one occasion might do the job.
> Yes“Yeah, Lisa, can you call Mr. Mishka and tell him to level up the Stuart?”Lisa nods. “Yep.” She quickly pulls out her cell phone and makes the call.> - 6,000 DOLLARS“Alright then,” you rub your hands together. Progress is being made. You love progress.The ITL officials run up to Captain Chouno and say something to her in Japanese. Chouno nods and says to Dubois, “It appears we’re done! All your tanks are now Tankery Legal!”Dubois smiles, patting Chouno on the shoulder. “Great! It was a real treat seeing you again, Ami. Don’t be a stranger you hear?”Chouno nods. “I hear you.” She looks over at you. “As for you, I expect great things from you.”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28326998>> Polite"Then we are two. Thank you for believing in me."
>>28326998> PoliteThank her properly.Dough Moe 'Arry Gateau.
> PoliteYou offer your hand. “Thank you for today then, Captain Chouno. I won’t let you down.” Captain Chouno politely shakes your hand, then she and the ITL Officials take their leave in their wickedass tank.Captain Dubois walks up to you. “Captain Chouno ain’t no fool. She knows when to intervene and when not to.” She pats your shoulder. “And like her, I do expect great things from you.”You blush, scratching the back of your head and smiling a bit. “Oh, thanks, Captain Dubois.”She snaps her finger. “Anyway, I gotta hit the road. See you tomorrow.” She climbs up into her Sheridan, then drives off.You look back into the Sports Warehouse, and note that Octavia is still leaning on the Panther, straight up at the ceiling.Your staff is also talking amongst themselves near the Sherman.You check the time. 5 O’Clock.

I’m fine.”You nod, concerned. “Okay, just making sure. I mean, I’m sorry if I pried or anything.”Octavia shrugs. “It was bound to come out soon, I’d prefer sooner rather than later. It’s not like anyone died or anything.” She checks the time. “Whoops, looks like I should head out.” She stands up straight and gives one last longing pat of the Panther. “You know, the Panther’s my favorite tank.”You smile. “Really?”Octavia snickers as she leaves. “Oh, you could ask Kate, she prefers the old Tiger.” She stops and quickly turns back to you. “Speaking of which, wanna know what we named our Tiger?”You nod. “Sure.”“The Steelmuncher.”Hm.

She’ll want to be briefed on the situation anyway.”With that, you lock up the tanks and leave the sportsfield and head for the dorms.Lisa says, “I think today went pretty well. I get to ace a math quiz, we get tanks, all that kind of stuff!”Nancy ponders on it. “I just hope tomorrow’s gonna be light work. I get the feeling the Instructor’s gonna throw us into battle.”You wave Nancy off. “Captain Dubois ain’t gonna do that. She knows we’re inexperienced. It’ll be a terrible thing!” Actually, you’re pretty much aware that she will do such a thing, but there’s no need to let Nancy know that.Lisa rubs her stomach. “Still, I’m hungry as all hell. You cooking for us Nancy?”Nancy smiles, something that she likes for once, “Yep! I’ll see what Kitten has to offer us!”“If I know Kitten,” you say, “It’ll probably just be nothing but instant noodles, soda, and chips.”Lisa raises an eyebrow. “How is Kitten not totally fat from her inactivity?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

> Boast“Oh, Kitten keeps herself active by cleaning her dorm. Somewhat excessively, but she does keep a rather shapely figure…” You think on it now. Kitten and a nice guy she can relate to. Someone she can play video games with, someone she can talk anime and movies with, someone she can trust to rely on and vice versa! Oh, that’d make so happy.Wait a second, you just described yourself.FU-Nancy says, “Well, since Kitten doesn’t have a lot in her kitchen, how about we stop for groceries then?”You nod. “Sure, sounds good.”Thankfully and quite conveniently, a grocery store happens to be on the way to the dorms. The four of you enter in, and you’re immediately immersed in chilly air-conditioning. You quickly exhale and rub your hands together.Nancy asks, “So, what do you want for dinner?”> Go all out> Nothing too special> Whatever you’d like, Nancy> Other

I’m no cook myself.”Nancy nods. “Of course, President!” She looks over at Ramirez and Lisa and says, “Would you two mind helping me pick stuff out?” They all follow Nancy into the shelves. With that, you decide to wander around.The grocery store is not exactly populated, because by now people are eating dinner either at home or a restaurant. You see the occasional student pick out some instant noodles but that’s about it.You wander over into the drinks section. Maybe an eight pack of soda would be nice or-You stop suddenly in your tracks. Odd, you don’t see anything blocking your path.“Pool.” You look down. It’s O’Hara, again stuffed right into your chest. You quickly step back.“Sorry, O’Hara, it’s just…” you look down at her. “You’re so… short.”O’Hara nods. “Well, stop your lights there. I hadn’t noticed.” She’s carrying a basket full of what appears to be fruit and cans. Gotta admit, the girl must eat healthy. “So, what brings you here?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28327887>> PoliteI didn't realize that we were that tall or busty...
>>28327899We are neither.

> Polite“Well, I was just wandering around. My staff’s buying groceries. We’re gonna have dinner later.”O’Hara adjusts her glasses a smidge, and then sighs. “Good for you.”…“So…” you shuffle a bit in place. “How’s your day going?”O’Hara shrugs. “Went fine. Me and O’Brian are off duty for now, so I’m taking the time to buy meself some groceries.” She shows you the basket of things.“Cool, cool,” you say. “How is O’Brian, anyway?”She puts her free hand on her hip, unamused. “O’Brian’s sleepy as fecking ever.”“You two room together right?”She nods. “That’s right, and she always tells me she can’t sleep because apparently I talk in my fecking sleep.”As if on cue, O’Brian rolls down the aisle on a shopping cart. “That’s because you’re always-““SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP O’BRIAN!” She stomps her foot, immediately red in the face. “YOU FUCKING CUNT! WE’RE IN PUBLIC! YOU KNOW BETTER!”O’Brian, indifferent to everything apparently, says, “Well, you cunt, maybe if you ever watched your language you wouldn’t have to worry about being in public.” She looks at you two, then back at O’Hara, smirking. “She your fecking girlfrie-““NO NO NO!

>>28328070I want to ask >>28328147 but we better clear it with the crew first. Still, even if she invites it on herself, she's getting treated pretty badly, she could probably use a friendly atmosphere.
>>28328147That won't be misconstrued at all. Oh no...I'm stupid enough to be all for it.
>>28328173Eh, it's not like it could get misconstrued as romantic dinner, given it's the whole group and all. Can't walk on eggshells worrying about everything.
>>28328070> “Well…”The girl could use a less hostile enviroment
>>28328070> “See you, O’Hara.”
>>28328147You know what? Sure. Why not? She seems on the level.
> Other“You know, O’Hara, if you want, you can have dinner with us.”O’Hara raises an eyebrow. “Eh?”You shrug. “Nancy’s a real good cook! Plus, I think we should get to know each other better you know? You seem like the only hall monitor I’ve met that isn’t a complete jackass to me and my people.”O’Hara looks tonguetied, and she’s still incredibly blushed after that incident with O’Brian. “O-oh… I don’t know. I mean, uh… eh?”“Should I take that as a yes?”She sighs, crossing her arms. “… Fine.”O’Brian immediately rolls back into view. “So, she is-“ She’s immediately greeted by a banana to the face. “OW! Cunt.”With that in mind, O’Brian pays for her own food and leaves, happy to get some sleep without O’Hara messing things up. With that in mind, you explain to your staff that O’Hara is gonna have dinner with you all.Nancy beams. “Excellent! It’ll be so nice to have a new face to talk to!”O’Hara crosses her arms. “Yeah, yeah. Just no hugging or kissing or anything.”Once your food is all paid for. You hit the road towards the Sophomore dorms, with O’Hara trailing behind all of you.> Talk to Nancy> Talk to Lisa> Talk to Ramirez> Talk to O’Hara> Other
>>28328294>Talk to O’HaraOink oink, piggy, you work for us now.
>>28328294>> Talk to O’Hara
>>28328294> Talk to Nancy
>>28328294> Talk to O’HaraSo, she doesn't get along well with the other hall monitors then? Why's that?
>>28328383She's an honest cop.
>>28328383>So, she doesn't get along well with the other hall monitors then? Why's that?Because she's not a corrupt bitch?
> Talk to O’HaraYou step back a bit and hang next to O’Hara. “So, O’Hara, tell me about yourself.”O’Hara looks surprised at you. “Tell you what about myself?”You shrug. “Oh, anything in particular. Interests, goals, stuff like that.”Lisa says, “Actually, why are the other hall monitors so mean to you? That’s something I want to know.”O’Hara says, “Because I’m mean to them. That’s how Irish people do.”Lisa says, “They seem pretty particular about the fact that you’re a lesbian.”“I’M NOT A-“ You stuff one of O’Hara’s apples into her mouth.“Now, relax, O’Hara,” you say. She simply takes a bite out of the apple and frees it from the clutches of her mouth. “We don’t care if you’re straight, gay, bi, or transsexual. This is America. You’re free to be whatever you want!”Ramirez says, “Technically, we’re not in America.”“Same difference, Ramirez.”O’Hara scoffs, a tinge of red in her cheeks. “Honestly, I don’t know where these rumors start. Those fecking cunts will come up with anything to amuse themselves.”With that, you arrive at Kitten’s dorm. You knock on the door, and after a minute of waiting, Kitten answers, clad in her school uniform. “Hey, Kitten,” you say. “We came for dinner!”Kitten looks at the stuff in the bags. “Awesome! Come in! Take your shoes off though, I just cleaned the floor.”All of you enter into Kitten’s recently cleaned dorm room. You can smell the air freshener and other cleaning products used in this undertaking.“So, Trudy.” Kitten walks up to you, allowing you to take your blazer off. “How’d your day go?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28328473>>28328480Pffffffft. Yeah, right, sure.The other two girls are just massive cunts to her.
>>28328473>>28328480Let's not make assumptions anons. For example, that's not necessarily O'Brian's issue (of course, there are other obvious reasons for her, but still).
>>28328491> BoastGotta overcompensate for yesterday!
>>28328491> Boastbut don't put too much energy into it, today was kinda shite, wasn't it.
> Boast“Oh, I think it went well, Kitten.” You pet her head, and she playfully slaps your hand away. “Anyway, you remember O’Hara right?” You pull O’Hara next to you.Kitten shakes her head. “Not really, no.”O’Hara scoffs. “Well, I suppose you’re a law-abiding student if you never see me then! I’ll have you know that I lead a Shift and have as many as five other hall monitors reporting to me!”Kitten nods. “Okay then.” Yeah, she lost her.“Anyway,” O’Hara says. “Shall we have dinner?”You nod, snapping your finger. “Yep, Nancy’s cooking. Nancy?”Nancy into her natural habitat, the kitchen. “On it, President!”Kitten points to her laptop, “You don’t mind if I put a movie on, do you?”You shake your head, “Nah. Go ahead. In the meantime,” you quickly reach under your shirt and CLICK. SWEET RELIEF.O’Hara looks at you funny. “Did you just unhook your bra?”You look at her. “You don’t when you get home?”“NO! That’s- Ugh.” She quickly goes somewhere else.> Talk with Kitten> Talk with Nancy> Talk with Lisa> Talk with Ramirez> Talk with O’Hara> Other
>>28328726>“NO! That’s- Ugh.” She quickly goes somewhere else....The mind virus spreads?
>>28328726> Talk with KittenAsk how her day has been.O'Hara clearly needs time for herself, dealing with the idea that not everyone is worried about looking gay at any give point of the day, so leave her for now.
>>28328726>> Talk with Kitten
>>28328726> Talk with KittenGive O'Hara a chance to cool down first.
> Talk with Kitten“So, Kitten, how was your day?”Kitten shrugs. “Pretty interesting. Sewing Club came by, of course, but they actually showed off their new uniforms for the Tankery Program.”She had your curiosity but now she has your attention. “Really, what were they like?”Kitten says, “Hey, I’m no fashion model. They did drop a lot of the blue and went for Olive drab though. It looks really professional now.”“Great stuff, anything else?”Kitten fiddles with the project. “Well, I did watch some porn, play some video games, stuff like that. Then I got the dorm cleaned. Suffice to say, pretty boring day.”“Hm, I bet I’d like to step in your shoes for like 10 minutes just to see what it’s like, Kitten.”“You wouldn’t like it.”You mockingly pout at her. “But I like you, Kitten!”Kitten mockingly pouts back at you. “So do I, but we can’t have everything, can we?”> Talk with Nancy> Talk with Lisa> Talk with Ramirez> Talk with O’Hara> Other
>>28328908>> Talk with NancySee what Nancy's cooking.
>>28328908>You mockingly pout at her. “But I like you, Kitten!”>Kitten mockingly pouts back at you. “So do I, but we can’t have everything, can we?”seriously its a miracle how no one else started teasing about us and kitten being a couple.> Talk with Nancycmon lets eat
>>28328908> Talk with LisaThe other two are busy (kind of for O'Hara), and Ramirez...just go with Lisa.
>>28328908> Well, I did watch some porn> someThat's lightweight
>>28328908> Talk with RamirezWe will get you to have a real conversation Ramirez. Just you wait.
>>28329021To be fair, maybe her sex-drive isn't that big.
>>28328908> Talk with RamirezIf she isn't in the mood for small talk, maybe she can enlighten us as to why the Animation Club isn't accepting new members?It's probably funding problems and Fredendall again I bet.
> Talk with Nancy“Watcha cooking, Nancy?”Already out on the counter are steaks, fries, onions, and all manners of foodstuffs. Nancy simply says, “Sirloin steak with fries, onions, and maybe some leafy greens like broccoli. Simple and easy to make.”Oh god, steak. You rub your stomach.“You want to help me cook, President?”Oh hell no. You wave her off. “Oh nonono, I don’t cook. I don’t even help cook. I don’t even think about cooking. I don’t even think about NOT cooking.”Nancy gasps. “But what happens if you get married, won’t your husband expect a nice home cooked meal?”You say, “I’ll say to you what the Spartans said to the Macedonians when the Macedonians threatened the Spartans with all kinds of things if they took Sparta.” You snap your fingers at her. “IF.”Nancy frowns. “That’s sad, President. You don’t know any nice boys?”You scratch the back of your head. “Well, there’s a reason I go to a GIRLS academy.”> Talk with Lisa> Talk with Ramirez> Talk with O’Hara> Other
>>28329133> Talk with LisaWe don't speak to the local Jew much.
>>28329133> Talk with Lisa
>>28329133> Talk with LisaLisa we're running out of funds what do?
>>28329133>> Talk with LisaDoes she have a brother named Bart?
> Talk with Lisa“So, Lisa, how you doing?”Lisa is lying back on Kitten’s bed, checking out a copy of Doc Savage. “Doing good. Gotta say, Kitten keeps a tight ship around. Makes my dorm look like a garbage dump.”You shrug, sitting down at the foot of the bed. “Well, Kitten’s one to clean, you know? Keeps her occupied.”Kitten looks over from the projector and says, “Maybe if you all would take the time to clean, it’ll look just like mine.”You wave her off. “Yeah, Kitten.”Lisa says, “Still, real interesting. I don’t particularly remember ever cleaning after myself though.”“Why’s that?”“My family always hired a maid or two.”Well, that figures. “Well, I suppose Kitten would make a nice maid then!” Oh, you can picture it now. Kitten with that cute white bow in her hair, a nice maid outfit, a lovely warm smile. She’d greet you at the door and say-“Stop thinking about me in a maid outfit, Trudy.”> Talk with Ramirez> Talk with O’Hara> Other
>>28329298You can't tell me what to do!> Talk with O’HaraI'd suggest Ramirez but...Ramirez. You know?
>>28329298> Talk with Ramirez"Ah, welcome home mistress! Would you like first? Dinner? A bath? Or maybe...you want me?
>>28329298> Talk with RamirezWE WILL GET YOU TO HAVE AN ACTUAL CONVERSATION DAMMIT.Also, how loaded is Lisa compared to Fredendall?
>>28329298> Talk with O’HaraIt has been bugging me how the other two Hall Monitors were able to pinpoint Nancy's uncomfortable past with her weeaboo roommate.
>>28329341Probably about equally but without the direct academy connection. Or maybe not.
>>28329298> Talk with Ramirez
>>28329298Attempt to converse with Ramirez. Continue to be distracted by Kitten in a maid outfit.
>>28329298If there an option to admit we're gay for Kitten yet?In the mean time>Talk with Ramirez
>>28329362BURN THE WEEABOO. KILL THE NEET. PURGE THE BRONY.*Jumps into fire*
>>28329379>>28329298Converse with Ramirez about Kitten in a maid outfit.
> Talk with RamirezUgh, you’re melting with how cute that image. Of course, Kitten is no psychic. She can’t tell you what you can and can’t think.“So Ramirez, what’s up?”Ramirez shrugs. “Not much.”…You sigh. “Ramirez, you’re not particularly good at conversing with other people, are you?”Ramirez again, shrugs. “Well, there’s a reason I’m still single and the fact the only people I ever talk to are the Theatre Tech kids and you guys.”Wow, that got depressing real fast.“Well, Ramirez,” you say. “You can always talk to us about… stuff. Anything, the weather, tanks, modern art, all that kinds of stuff.”Ramirez nods. “Okay then.”…RAMIREZ-> Talk with O’Hara> Other
>>28329133>“Well, there’s a reason I go to a GIRLS academy.”>>28329298Oh, you can picture it now. Kitten with that cute white bow in her hair, a nice maid outfit, a lovely warm smile. She’d greet you at the door and say-
>>28329469> OtherFuck it."Ramirez! Hold a conversation with me!"
>>28329469>> Talk with O’HaraSee what our little O'Hara is doing.
>>28329469> Talk with O’HaraCan we get a new sub-quest: Find a conversational-subject Ramirez might actually give her non-prompted thoughts on?
>>28329469>> Talk with O’Hara"Ramirez! Tell me your opinion on maids!"
>>28329483If this doesn't cut it, nothing will.
>>28329483Pfffft, this is too funny not to vote for.
> Talk with O’Hara“So, O’Hara, how are things with you?”O’Hara is curled up at the foot of the bed, looking less than amused at all this friendly interaction. “Well,” she begins, “I suppose I could be doing worse.”You sit down next to her. “Oh, come on, O’Hara. We’re all friends here!... technically, I mean, we don’t really know you all that well and you do associate with people who fuck us over a lot, but hell that doesn’t mean we don’t want to know more about you!”Kitten says, “Yeah, I’m interested in hearing why you got into Law Enforcement Studies.”O’Hara puffs her cheeks. “None of your concern.”You say, “Of course not, but it’d still be pretty interesting.”O’Hara waves you off. “Oi, I don’t ask you which side of the bed you wake up on in the morning. I’m just here from some free food. Maybe a movie too.”Kitten says, “Yeah, I decided to pick out Gettysburg for-““GETTYSBURG!?” O’Hara has turned from a soury Irish girl into a very giddy Irish girl. “Oh! I love that movie! The novel’s great too you know, you know! I oughta say the topic of the Civil War is a very interesting thing you know, I tell you what!”… didn’t see that coming.Nancy says, “Dinner’s ready!”> Get your food.> Converse with someone (Specify)> Other
>>28329659>> Get your food.DINNERTIME
>>28329659> Get your food.>Watch Gettysburg. No riffing on it while O'Hara's listening.
>>28329659>> Get your food.We need to talk to Hanna tommorow.
>>28329659> Get your food.I wonder what she thinks about Lincoln (movie).
>>28329659> Get your food.Switch from thoughts of maid outfits to aprons.Then snap to reality where Kitten probably has a scarf tied to her hair and a mask over her mouth while using a vacuum cleaner or a feather duster to clean up. She's still cute that way though.
> Get your food.You quickly snatch up your food from Nancy. “Thanks, Nancy!”Nancy nods. “No trouble at all!”Soon, the food is distributed, and Kitten has gotten the projector working. O’Hara quickly sits up front by the bed, ready for some Civil War action and intrigue. You’ve never seen O’Hara like that, Christ.Then again, you haven’t seen O’Hara all that much since you met her.You begin digging into your food, and boy howdy it’s delicious. The steak is so juicy and chewy, and the fries simply go crunch crunch crunch motherfucker. Nancy’s right, you definitely need to learn to cook so you can make shit like this.Kitten turns out the lights and turns on the projector. She holds up the remote.You say, “Everyone ready?”“Ready!”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTcaRk0ZRJ4> END DAY
>>28329751True, true.Also Kitten has all day to clean up, hardly fair to compare her place to the rest of you.
And that's it for tonight. Will run tomorrow at the usual time of 3 PM EST to 10 PM EST.Follow the twitter at: https://twitter.com/AdBa19See you next time.
>>28329782Cozy End.Thanks for running!
>>28329800I'LL BE WAITING SCHTEELGood job running today.
>>28329800Awesome thread, see you tomorrow.Say, what's O'Hara's opinion on Lincoln?
>>28329800Finally, I can get to sleep. Stupid timezones.Awesome thread, GS.
Archive anyone?I got a couple of questions for those with knowledge on tanks.>76mm gun M1>75mm gun M31.) Are these guns Sherman exclusive, or are they compatible with other Allied vehicles/platforms?2.) Is this also the same case with the Valiant's 75mm gun, or does the gun itself have its own set of problems like the tank itself?
>>28329800Thanks for running, boss.
>>28330095Valient is a terrible tank overall.The 76mm is mostly sherman exclusive the 75mm might be used to outfit a chuchhill mark 3/4
>>28330394Isn't we finished one when we have gunnery practice several threads ago?
