It was entirely possible that Saori, Mako and Hana would go to dinner here- it looked like they hadn't even noticed you. For a few minutes, you even thought you might actually get your nice, quiet dinner-and-movie-date with Miho.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and you just wanted to enjoy the breadsticks, soda and company of your girlfriend- then Yukari called you to the bathroom and things went downhill.Regardless of how annoyed you were to find your driver waiting in the men's bathroom with Yukari. However, when it comes to women he has experience, and as you sit back down at Miho and attempt to pretend nothing happened, his advice seems solid.>"So, what are you having?">Let her order.>Troll them. Hard.>Other.
>>29640267>Troll them. Hard.>"So, what are you having?"
>Troll them. Hard.
>>29640267>>"So, what are you having?"Follow his advice.
>>29640267>Troll them. Hard.>"So, what are you having?"Pass her a note that EVERYONE is here to watch our date so she's in on it.
>>29640267>"So, what are you having?"We can troll them later.
>>29640267>"So, what are you having?"Don't screw things up by trolling.
>>29640267>>"So, what are you having?"Get some mad pussy
>>29640333planefag strike witches quest when
>>29640267>Troll them. Hard
>>29640333Get back to work nigger
>>29640267That came up out of the blue.>Other>"Anything you feel like having?"
Pass the note, see if she's up for some trollage.
>>29640267Oh yeah, baby. >>29640355
>>29640936On second thought, let's go with this, but only if MIho wants in.
Actually, is the note necessary? It may be less conspicuous to just say it lowly.
>>29640355oh yes! so much this!
>>29640983Either way, just let her know.
>>29640983That could work too, as long as she's in on it/willing
>>29640983Grab a menu, insert napkin with note saying you're both being played, pass off to Miho.
I will try and finish Rinalewds tonight
>>29640267>Troll them. Hard.>Other.Yeah, let Miho in on action too.
>>29640267Covertly get Miho's permission, consent, and cooperation in trolling them hard.
>>29641295http://pastebin.com/TG7BDu45There's really only the sex part left to write at this point I guess.For some reason Blackjack and DnD seem to always coincide, so I won't be able to write for a few hours because games.
>Other: Spaghetti overloadI expecting some spaghetti tonight.
>>29641846I agree, let's get some spaghetti in where there are minimal consequences to be had.
>>29642027I like to think that Russels needs to spill out a small amount of spaghetti every now and then, so that it doesn't overflow and spill out during an important moment.
>>29642070My thoughts exactly. Also, this thread can't officially begin without this.
>>29641846You do not know what you ask. Russels has been building spaghetti since the day he set foot on the carrier. If he loses his pasta, we could be looking at at Chernobyl levels of cataclysm. Our best case scenario involves the pasta leaking out of Russels' pockets so quickly that it propels him to escape velocity.
>>29642196>samefagcorrected, and wrong answer.
>>29642241well that would explain the Miho PTSD Spaghetti gifs we've seen...
>>29640333Sup.>>29640355>>Troll them. Hard.>"So, what are you having?">Pass her a note that EVERYONE is here to watch our date so she's in on it.Yes. Let's do this.
>>29642070WRONG.Russels will lose all of his spaghetti in a catastrophic event in the future.Likely immediately after Miho wins the championship, in public, on TV.
>>29642392The pasta must be contained.It will be released when, in a fit of celebration at the climax of the story, she grabs our crotch.Then Anchovy will sit bolt upright in her bed, sensing a great disturbance in the Pasta. As if millions of noodles suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly awkward.
Anyone think we should have this mentioned at some point? It might be good for a few laughs and a combat scene.
>>29642392She will kiss him on international television after winning the championship. Given the fame of her family that would be plenty of reason right there to spaghetti. Though, I am counting on Shiho to commend them after everything is over and admit Russels is the only boy she would approve of to date either of her daughters.
So why isn't the other couple here?
>>29642509>eitherwhy not both?
>>29642509HA! Like the Iron Maiden of Tanking will admit she was wrong. Her reaction will be more along the lines of this.
>>29642576No, anon, We get Miho, Miho gets her sister. Maho gets pic related.
>>29642578>>29642509Well, to be fair, she was clapping at the end of the show when they were all celebrating.
You put on a smile, barely glancing over at Saori- and just barely catch her glancing your table. Yeah, she's in on this.Act casual, Russells. You give Miho a big smile. "So, anything look good?" You say, peeking down at your own menu- for an ostensibly French restaurant there's Italian pasta, German deserts and, perhaps most out of place, hamburgers. You'd be a lot more perplexed if you hadn't seen Chinese all-you-can-eat restaurants with Sushi and tempura and, on one occasion, Kimchi.Yeah. As an American, you don't have room to complain."What's this... Supageti Carubanara?" She says."Spaghetti Carbonara? Oh- it's noodles with... Actually it's pretty good." You say with a nod. "My grandfather's got a great recipe for it..." You say, glancing again over at Saori's table. Glancing back down at the menu, you decide on something you don't quite recognize- French into Japanese into English makes it's name generally unrecognizable, but it's beef, bacon and potatoes- sounds right up your alley.On time, the waiter returns. "And you are ready to order?">Let Miho order for herself.>Order for her.>Other.
>>29642578Hardly. Her dignity will be broken forever after we shower her with Ragu.
>>29642663>Order for her.
>>29642663>Order for her.Maintain the facade
>>29642663>>Order for her.
>>29642663>Order for her.Stay on target
>>29642663>Order for her then let her order for us.
>>29642663>Supageti CarubanaraOrder for her.
>>29642642depends on how Blackjack decides to do it.>29642663I vote for >>29642745>>296426831. Nice. 2. Traumatizing Shiho? How?
>>29642745Anon, that's fudge, not marinara.
>>29642776Carbonara is a cream sauce with bacon.

Since we will be facing Pravda (relatively) soon, I have been making a list of gear, clothes, and equipment the group should buy in order to be prepared. I will post it when the time is right, but before I do, does anyone have any items they would suggest?
>>29643062...Wat, this isn't LGA:Q, we don't buy things or have a budget/etc.
>>29643062Get out of here, Frenchie. We don't need anything 'ceptin' good rolled Detroit steel and American willpower.
>>29643132Given that the team went out in SHORT SKIRTS, I think we may need to be more direct in dealing with winter preparations. >>296431641. How the hell does preparing for Arctic conditions make me French? 2. We're from California... we will NEED to bundle up. 3. How warm do you think it is inside a large, metal vehicle?
>>29643241With a running engine behind us and a personnel heater, pretty warm. Overalls and a fleece jacket will be enough.
>>29643598Personal heaters, check.Jeans and fleece jacket,checkHowever: if, for some reason, someone should have to leave their tank... additional layers will be needed.
>>29643598I feel really bad for Rabbit Team. The Lee uses an air-cooled engine which was notorious because it drew its air from the crew compartment, which on cold nights basically sucked cold air directly onto the crew.
>>29643598>A literal metal box>In any way warm with WW2 level techYou moron. Even modern things like TLAVs are cold as balls in winter, you need proper kit. That includes polypro, fleece, and goretex.
>>29643132>...Wat, this isn't LGA:Q, Thank fucking god>we don't buy things or have a budget/etcOoarai doesn't haveasny money to give us a budget for anyway.
>>29643858You realise that people have their own money, right?Even just polypro and a proper outer layer should be enough depending on the temperature, and that should only run like $300-350.
>>29643849Ah, the joys of aviation engines in AFVs. It's as American as baseball or apple pie.
Lie on the engine deck. shit
>>29643849Same for crews of the Hellcat, especially with the open turret.
>>29643849They can just light the fucking thing on fire, there, plenty of heat.
>>29643942MFW lighting your own engine on fire is a good idea.
>>29643849Pretty much all the American tanks in WW2 did.>>29643854The Russians found their T-34s warm enough in winter. For Shermans they just added fleece lined coveralls and called it a day.
>>29643875That's an insane amount of money for a high school student.
>>29644050Really? I've gotten that much from family for things like winter clothing for outdoor courses.
>>29644019No, I meant the tank. Burn the damn thing to the ground.(I don't have much love for the Lee)
>>29644036Mainly effective in Shermans because they were so roomy inside, by tank standards. I read a really neat memoir of a Russian tanker who was in a Lend-Lease Sherman and he said that even in full winter gear it was easy and comfortable to get in and out of the tank in a hurry, especially considering how small and cramped the T-34 and other Russian tanks were.
>>29644100This isn't WOT, mang.
>>29644100ok, Mr. sunshine, you have another tank for the freshies to drive? No? I thought not.
>>29644150That would be Dmitriy Loza
>>29644224http://english.iremember.ru/tankers/17-dmitriy-loza.htmlA very nice read
>>29644155It's an even worse tank IRL
>>29644304Not really. It was fine for what it was designed and generally deployed against. Not GREAT or even above average, but in the African theater it was a decent tank.
>>29644155I wasn't referencing WoT.>>29644165It was a joke, relax.
>>29644283Thanks, Link is bookmarked. Now pound it.
>>29644357Alright, I gotcha. Still wish there was a way to put tone into text.
>>29644150HURRY UP AND POST
>>29644406Not sure which guy you were that I replied to (the one where I said it was a joke or the one saying this isn't WoT, I'll just assume you were the latter) I rather enjoyed the Lee in WoT, it's not *bad* if played like a turretless TD (hiding everything but the gun around a corner and blasting away like that). I still moved to the M4 series as fast as I could, though.
>>29644440I know this is a dumb question, but is BlackJack dead yet?>>29644476First guess was correct.
>>29644494ah, makes sense now. No biggie.
>>29644494And yes, he's pushing up daises.
The waiter looks at you; You look at the menu. You try an attempt at the French-into-Japanese wording. He cocks his head and your face goes red- you take another attempt at it. "I'm sorry?" He says.You bow your head in defeat, pointing to the item on the menu. At this point Miho seems to be covering a smile by taking a drink of water as the waiter nods enthusiastically. "Very good choice, sir!"Before he has a chance to turn to Miho, you take a breath. "And Miho will have the Spaghetti Carbonara!" You say, mustering what little confidence remains. He looks from you to Miho and Miho nods. "Yes, and an ice tea.""Very good!" The waiter says, folding his order and taking your menus. Okay, you didn't screw that up. Miho seems pleased, too! Maybe Richard isn't full of it all the time.>"So, Yukari and Richard are in the bathroom.">Make small talk.>Talk about tanks!>Other.
>>29644809>>Talk about tanks!
>>29644809>"So, Yukari and Richard are in the bathroom."
>>29644809>Make small talk
>>29644809>Make small double entendres HUE HUE HUE about being watched.
>>29644809>>Make small talk.Compliment her on her hair!
>>29644809>>Talk about tanks!casual tank talk, try to hint at the things going on in the shadows while we do it
>>29644088I'd be lucky if I ever had $20 to my name at any given time.Even with a part time job, it wasn't much better thanks to school and extracurriculars taking up most of my tine.Fancy winter clothes and whatnot were only on an absolute need basis. And even then only if we couldn't make the old stuff last.If i'd gad $300 when I was 16 i'd have though I was the richest fucker in the school.
>>29644931>>29644088it all depends on you and your parent's socio-economic background, ok?
>>29644809>Make small talk.We already know about Yukari's movie preferences, for one. So what about Miho then?
>>29645013Ooh! That's a good idea, I like that. Let's do that instead.
>>29644809>"So, Yukari and Richard are in the bathroom."Gossip about potential cheating between members in the team.
>>29644088>being richIt's okay. When the economy collapses again, we'll all be poor together, richfag.
>>29645013I'd say romances, comedies, slice-of-life, the lighter fare. I don't see her being that into history or action. Her sister on the other hand... Capcha: LORD treempaMaho likes the works of Lord Treempa, apparently.
>>29644809>Make small talk.
>>29645086Long does Lord Treempa slave over his works of history and war and politics to sate the hungering masses.>>29645113I read that as >make small tank.
>>29645136and he takes time to be sure that every detail, how ever insignificant, is historically accurate,even to the lodging of the cast and crew.
>>29645136We're too young to make tanks! How lewd.
>>29645013Especially if that leads to her mentioning a movie that's still in theatres
>>29645228>Not making little tankers and tankettes to further continue the Black Something Something Academy style of tankeryStep up your game, mate.
>>29645255You DARE speak the name of the arch-enemy, Black Forest, the fortress of Shiho? (fake-outrage is fake)
>>29645228"Rina, let's make tanks together!""WHY WOULD YOU SAY SOMETHING SO SHAMELESS!?">pic related, making tanks
>>29645353>pic related, making tanksSure, if you're in Australia.
>>29645353Why is it upside down? Damn tablet.
>>29645353>>29645386Have more chibi-tanks.
>>29645386He is in Australia.
>>29645229Yep. And why limit it to just that?Ask her about her music preferences?Head over to the music store. We need to add some songs to the Blackjack playlist anyway.Games? Arcade it is! And win her one of those stuffed bears wrapped in bandages she seem to like.Books or magazines maybe? To the bookstore!Maybe we can even go to one of those picture booths that are popular in Japan.>>29645412... it wasn't intentional? Man, you really are in the upside down part of the world./joke
>>29645481I know. Hence the joke spawned by the upside down image.
>>29645427Two down, two to go...>>29645496Next step of the date, man.
>>29645525I brought everyone favorite fluffy!
>>29645525Mein kampfy slippers.
>>29645581And finally...>>29645596I am so using that.
>>29645427My pic is actually a model. Can't remember what scale, but it's a Pz. IV Ausf C
>>29645630eh, its still smaller than an actual tank, thus it is tiny, and therefore chibi. (joking again)
>>29645525They look like the Dicker Max. Which is funny because they only made two of them, if I remember right.
>>29645713yep. they sucked, like every other prototype fielded by Germany.
>>29645811They probably would've been great at their intended purpose, but they got forced into being tank destroyers instead.
>>29645811As far as I know they performed fine in practice. Where's all this about them being crap coming from?
>>29645811Well the Dicker Max did actually claim a few kills when defending the Fatherland
>>29645845true, the report from the Ostfront did say they were succesfully employed against bunkers.>>29645859>>29645869go read the wiki:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/10.5_cm_K_(gp.Sfl.)
>>29645898>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/10.5_cm_K_(gp.Sfl.)That's still not terrible, for a prototype thrown into the front lines instead of actual trials.
>>29645956Yes, it actually did the job it was designed for rather well. Not exactly adaptable machine though.
>>29645992No, but I don't think it was ever meant to be. The fact that it even exists shows just how much the Germans overestimated the Maginot Line, though.
>>29646164To be fair, *Everyone Ever* overestimated the Maginot line until after the fact.
Miho smiles at you politely and you smile back. You need small talk- a nice casual conversation. You suck at small talk."So..." You say nervously, not really having an idea of what you're going to say."This is a really nice restaurant!" Miho comments, looking around. "It's very romantic." Was it romantic? Too romantic? Oh God, yeah, you should've gone somewhere more casual! And less expensive! Miho's going to think she owes you something. That's not what you want!Your brain is quickly accelerating like a Toyota with a malfunctioning throttle- swerving back and forth across thoughts uncontrolled and destined to crash. You feel your pulse racing and your breathing- you're breathing too hard! Stop that! She'll know something's wrong.You feel your phone vibrate in your pocket, shaking you from your thoughts. You apologize. "Jeez- I forgot to turn it off!" You glance down at it- a simple text from Richard- "Breathe." You freeze, ignoring the instinct to look around to find him.Instead, you take a deep breath and things become clear.>"Which movie did you want to see?">"What was it like growing up in the Nishizumi family?">Other.
>>29646280I don't really get why the French thought the Black Forest would provide a natural barrier. I mean, it's difficult to move through a forest, but not impossible.Then again, I don't know what the Black Forest is like. All I know are the forests around me, which are dense evergreen and cedar.
>>29646369>>"Which movie did you want to see?"REMEMBER, SMALL TALK.SMALL. NOT FAMILY TALK
>>29646369>"Which movie did you want to see?"
>>29646369>"Which movie did you want to see?"ptsd is not a dinner topic
>>29646369>"Which movie did you want to see?"And anything in particular which are interesting for her?
>>29646369>>"Which movie did you want to see?"
>>29646369>>"Which movie did you want to see?"Does Miho seem more like the kind of girl that would like romantic comedies, or more like the kind of girl that would be into more typical chick flicks?
>>29646830depends on what you call a "typical chick flick"
>>29646936Nope. No way. Non. Nein.
>>29646936Hell no. Rom-coms and light-hearted funnies.
>>29646830Neither, I hope. Both styles tend to be pretty terrible. I would venture to guess that she likes Pixar-esque cartoons or documentaries.
>>29647113>Director's cut of Das Boot
>>29647113actually, I like this better.She seems like a cartoon person. Miho would really like Frozen now that I think about it. >>29647191that's Maho. Miho watches because her sister does.
>>29647113War and Peace?
>>29647113A horror film
>>29647191>>29647219I was thinking something more along the lines of National Geographic movies they show on the IMAX screens. The ones about deep-sea exploration, space, and the like.
>>29647219I'd make that one of the few war movies she watches on her own.>>29647221hmmm. Miho and flower girl (its too late for me to be remembering names) are the only ones who are ok with war violence... >>29647300I can see Miho enjoying nature documentaries.
>>29647327David Attenborough narrating, of course?
>>29647359who else? (still want to take Miho to Frozen though.)
>>29647401I approve of this plan good sir.
>>29647440Everyone in favor of Miho wanting to see Frozen, Post tank pictures!
>>29647485Have a M60 A3
>>29647300Yeah, I think she'd have a soft spot for seeing impressive technology in noncombat contexts.
>>29647537I bet she'd totally love shows like Modern Marvels and stuff like that.
>>29647401Sounds solid. There is positively no way that such a movie date could go wrong!Maybe.
>>29647514I always forget how fucking huge the M60 was.
>>29647626I think some anon already posted Miho liking positive, non-violent uses of technology somewhere...
>>29647689Yes, I replied to the post you're thinking of...

"So... What movie did you want to go see?" You ask, leaning in a bit- it's something you'd seen Richard do with women- sometimes he didn't get slapped, too- Miho leans in a bit too.You're pretty sure that's a good sign. "Oh, I love Pixar movies! We could go see that new one! Frozen!" She seems almost giddy with excitement at the prospect. "Have you seen Brave? I loved that one!" You don't think you'd seen Miho quite so exuberant before.American cinematic imports were wierd- Sometimes they were released at the same time, other times took months. In this case Frozen had been in the theatres last winter- fortunately you hadn't seen it yet."Sounds great- but no looking at me during the sad scenes!" You joke- not really, Pixar movies had a habit of having at least one bit that hit you in the right place to have you weeping like a kid.Miho covers her mouth and laughs at this- she seems really exuberant. You blink a bit. And a bit flush. Wait a second... Your eyes narrow at you look over to Saori's table- yeah, they know you're looking right at them. And the two empty wine glasses.You look back over at Miho who's still giggling a bit. They got her drunk.
>>29648262Saori, you bitch.

Anyone going to write tonight?
>>29648548I think Sentinel is working on lewds. Anyway, thread archived, remember to vote, etc
>>29648548I'm posting in my pastebin, you have the thread.
>>29648638http://pastebin.com/u/Sentinelfag afforementioned pastebin
>>29648638AwesomePreviously: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29474320/#p29483052You explain “It'll be fine, I doubt this match will last an hour so we'll have time to finish up here, and I want to see how the Crews at this club work”The three of you hurriedly make your way to the Saloon. It's relatively full, all the chairs have been taken, you spot Ashley sitting near the door watching the matchYou point at her and casually sidle up behind, there's no need to announce your prescence so you lean against the wall behind her and watch the matchIt's a birds eye view of the grounds>[1/?]
>>29648666Gee thanks :Pspecific link to Rinalewds is up the thread
>>29648709You're welcome ;)
>>29648684You spot a Chaffee attempting to cross the stream by using one of the bridges located at the far end of the fieldYou note that there's no overwatch for the M24. Movement draws you eye to the thicket edge, it appears an M4A1 is going to take a shot at the front of the Chaffee as it crosses the bridge, except it's having trouble manuevering the barrel through the thicket without getting tangled
>>29648777Looking around the rest of the screen you spot a knocked out M4A1 on the far side of the grounds, it appears as if it had crossed the ford and tried to regroup with the M24 by skirting the stream before getting knocked out. You suppose this was the cannon fire earlier>[3/?]
>>29648822Going back to the M4A1 at the thicket patch you see its tried to get a clearer shot by moving forward through the thicket, the movement causes the M24 to bring its gun to bear on the M4A1. You already know what's going to happen, like clockwork the M4A1 halts in the thicket as the bushes wrap around the drive sprocket, the gun attempts to traverse but it to is trapped in the bushesThe Chaffee grinds to a halt, the gun finishes traversing onto the Sherman. Sensing this the Sherman attempts to reverse, but it's too late. The Chaffee belches smoke and fire, the crack of the cannon permeates you ears and a little white flag pops out of the Sherman>[4/?]
>>29648709You're not working on it in the pastebin, are you? If you are, it's not showing up.
>>29648948Does that acutally come up?And not atm, I'm still doing DnD
>>29648897Your attention is drawn back to the other M24 working its way back up the stream side. It appears the Commander is intending to take the other Chaffee from the rear, in a few seconds the two of them will be able to see each other. It pauses on the reverse of the hill in a turret down position, you can see the Commander pop out to observe over the crest before buttoning upThe Chaffee that had crossed the bridge has moved into the forest that spreads along the boundaries and up to the thicket. Its tracks towards the forest are clearly visible from the aerial view, and apparently to the Chaffee on the hill as it moves to the track marksYou can tell the game is over, the Chaffee in the opening is following the tracks, in plain sight of everything. You can see the tracks head into the forest, you don't know where they lead in the forest as there is too much overhead cover to see, but you know the other team is watchingFoliage shudders and roils as bright yellow flames lick through the leaves for an instant. A round flies out of the tree line and impacts the side of the Chaffee in the clearing.A white flag pops out. Conversation restarts and washes out the late crack of the gunRobert whispers in your ear “You get all that?”“Yeah, I know what to do”>[5/?]>The Chaffee>The ChaffeeGod that looks bad
>>29648982never mind then
>>29648982what are you using to make the pictures for your posts? it looks like world of tanks, but I don't think it is.
>>29648982If that match was anything to go by, the calibre of skill the Crews have is pretty average, they make mistakes that are obvious to them in hindsight, but not when they're in the matchYou look to Rob and Hamish “Lets find John and finish off the Tee-Thirty-Two, last time I saw him was in the staging area”“There was no one out there during the match, so I guess he's in here” Rob replies“Alright, look around for him”“Adam”You look down towards Ashley “what's up”“What did you think of the match?”You respond treading the line between truth and lie “it was alright”Hamish cuts into your conversation “I see him”“Go get him”“He's with a bunch of children”“Don't get him then” your attention turns back to Ashley “in hindsight you can see where they went wrong”“But do you think you can win?”You hide your cards by shrugging “I dunno, we'll see when we get in”John approaches from his table with the 'kids' in tow; they aren't kids, they're teenagers about the same age as the ones that were talking to Rick“Hey man, I was just talking to Caitlin and her crew” he motions to a red headed girlThey're smiling at you, a better reaction than the crew Rick was talking to; John must have really warmed them upA goofy grin forms on your face while looking over the Crew “how's it going”>[6/?]>>29649025Men of War: AS GEM
>>29649117“Pretty good”“Not you John, I mean the crew you brought over”“Well it's going well so far, but we'll see after our match”“What tank are you using?” your suspicion perks, Johns gone and done something“We're using a Lee” she replies curtly“That's a big crew, when's your first match” you ask trying to confirm whether or not John has been chatting with your opponents“We're on next, with Elizabeth's crew, going up against a Tee-Thirty-Two”“Oh hey that's-” you cut Ashley off “that's the tank in the private hanger right?”“Yeah” she responds enthusiatically “I think we'll win though, apparently their team hasn't checked out the grounds and they only have two shells”“Shit” you start planning in your head before responding “hey that's cool, I gotta go to the bathroom quickly. Good luck in your match”You wave to the girls before turning towards your crew; you put a finger to your lipsPaper, a pen, and a map of the Grounds; these are the things you needYou spot a pen on the bar counter and you're not above swiping it. With a pen in hand you go about looking for a blank piece of paper. You spot a newspaper scattered on a table, but the blank space is far too small to write onYou turn towards a girl sitting at the bar “mate, where's some blank paper I draw on?”“Pardon?” she responds mildly surprisedYou try to put it simply “I need blank paper”“Try outside, there's some maps with only a single side” she answers>[7/?]
>>29649186“Awesome” you say before walking off, this is going to be easier than you expectedYou walk back to the door when someone calls out to you “I thought you went to the toilet”, you look to your right and notice Ahsley is talking to you“Oh, I lied” you reply nonchalantly "I don't even know where the toilet is"“Wait, why?”“I haven't felt the need to pee” you say while walking out of the SaloonYou look to your left and spot the maps sitting in a cradle hanging off the wall. How did you miss this. You grab one and head back inside while looking it over, the quality is pretty terrible but it'll do"No, I mean why did you lie?""Hiding my cards, anyway, where are the starting areas on the map?”“Pass” you give her the map after she asks and lays it down on the table she's sitting at and points to four places "Here, here, here, here. You'll never be on the same side of the stream as your opponent, I can't tell you where the Lee and Sherman will start”You lean over the table and pull out the pen to mark the starting areas for each team“How come you're hiding your cards?” she does those little bunny ears with her fingers while saying the latter>[8/?]
>>29649264“Makes it easier to win” you say without looking up from the map“Really? Is it that important for you to win?” “Not really, but for some reason I do like seeing their reaction” you outline the low lands and river crossings as well as the high lands“I think he has a mental condition” Rob follows up“Really?” she asks her eyebrows raisedYour reply is quick and to the point “yes”“I was asking Rob” she says pointing a finger at him"Oh" you look up "that's too bad"With the map finished you ask “I'm gonna go finish off the Tee-Thirty-Two, come if you want”Hamish joins you in making your way to the Hangar. You still need to finish the extenders , warm the engine up, and check how much Gas you haveThe tracks don't take long with the two of you working on them which leaves warming up the engine. Hamish coaxs it into life, it's relieveing that the battery hasn't died again, but there's still the plumes of smoke that come out each time>[9/?]
>>29649324“We getting any smoke back there?” he asks climbing out of the drivers seat and onto the engine deck “yeah, we are”“Spark Plugs?” you shoot him a question while watching her idle“I hope” he sighs “Worst case is the injector is busted and we have to rebuild”You check your phone “ten minutes”, you shake your head “wheel her out, not enough time to fix it and I doubt they'll see the smoke till it's too late”She clatters out of the Hanger into the staging area, you follow on foot careful not to breath the exhaust. You spot Rick, your crew, and Ashley in the staging area“huh”Hamish parks up next to them, not bothering to dismount. You approach the group “What's up guys” you finger gun at Ashley “and girls”Rob pipes up quickly “I told Ash she could ride with us in the co-driver's seat”“Okay” you turn to Rick “where are we starting?”John makes his way in through the Loader's hatch while Rob helps Ashley up “wow” is all can you think“You'll be in the Hamlet” your attention snaps back to Rick and you pull out your map “This place?” you ask pointing to one of the corners“Yeah, just make your way down the path, follow it and then cut to the right at the first intersection” he says pointing towards the edge of the staging area “your opponents are already in position so don't keep them waiting, match starts when the Siren rings twice, if it rings once that means the match is off, or its ended">[10/10]It was going to be longer because I have a shitload to dump, but I need to sleep
