So! winter storm going on- translated for everyone not in the area, that basically means it's balls cold and there's freezing rain. While I don't expect this to become an issue at all, if I stop posting somewhere along the way, it's safe to assume the internet is down for some reason or other and there's riots and looting and pillaging and whatnot all commensurate with the end of the world as we know it. Archives here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Strike%20witches%201989and the character sheet is... somewhere and out of date, haha. If you want to jump in, ask in the thread, If one of the guys doesn't help out, i will. ++“This runway sucks all that is ass.” You state to Mav, walking down one side of it, illuminated by the lights and the setting sun. “Too narrow and there's no room for error.”“You're being a colossal baby.” She says, picking up a pebble and flinging it out to sea with a brutal side-arm toss. “Like this is worse than a carrier deck.”“There's no catapult and no wires.” You point out. “And there's almost no room for error at MTOW, let alone if we try to land heavy. There's no reversers on the Wyvern, and no drouge.” You shake your head. “You witches have it easy.” Mav snorts. “Yeah, sure we do. Instead of wrecking a jet, birdstrike can kill us, if an engine fails, it can take a leg with it, and oh, yeah, you get to walk around in your panties all day and just have to deal with everyone mentally undressing you the rest of the way.”“Oh don't bullshit me.” You say, laughing at the last point. “You like that last one just fine.”1/3 (I think)
She grins. “Yeah, maybe. We got into a squadron with incredibly nice asses.” She looks over at you. “How did that one work out?” You laugh and shrug, bending to pick up another small pebble- FOD, while important for witches, is nowhere near the same threat to them and their procedures to control it aren't that great. You've done three or four walks with the ground crews, and each time, you've found something. “Luck?” You say, neatly matching her throw- there's not much point in competing with her, you'll end up winning but it's just as likely you'll throw your shoulder out doing it. She chuckles. “Yeah, sure, and that's why you're having such a miserable time with Katya?” You shake your head. “I have no idea what's up with her. First she's all over me, now it's like she can't even stand to be in the same room.”“Pfft. You're being dramatic.” Mav says. “Besides, it's a defense mechanism. You know that.” “It- what?” You ask, stopping. She stops two steps beyond you and turns halfway to face you. “C'mon, we've seen this before. Penny Benjamin? One of us takes a tumble, suddenly she hates me?” “Yeah but-” You protest, remembering the incident. Penny was witch who flew briefly with the unit before being transferred out, less than six weeks after her assignment. She and Mav had had a fling, of sorts, until there'd been a training accident and Penny had ridden a parachute into a swamp. She'd been flying with Mav at the time, who'd called in the mayday, and while Penny wasn't hurt badly, just a few scratches and bruises, she avoided Mav the entire rest of her time with the squadron. 2/3
Mav shakes her head. “No, but nothing. Hell, Frank, think about it. First you're some invincible, infallable knight in shining armor, then bam, you crash a tomcat with her in the back and she ends up with a leg snapped like a Popsicle stick.” She shrugs. “So now her image of you is all jacked up and she doesn't know how to handle the concept that maybe you aren't perfect.”“But-” You protest, and she shakes her head again. “But nothing, aviator. Look here, she's already said she wasn't really approachable back in the USSR. War hero grandmother, important family, all that. Of course she doesn't know how to handle a boyfriend, and you ain't exactly the best with girls, neither.” She says, her accent becoming more pronounced. “I'm perfectly fine with females.” You state. Mav laughs. “Frank, you're a fighter pilot. Y'all ain't exactly noted for being the smoothest operators ever.”You pause, then nod. “Hey baby, I'm a pilot?” She laughs again. “It works about as well as hey baby, I'm a witch.” She says. “Great for one nighters, godawful for anything approaching a lasting relationship.”“So what do you think I should do?” You ask. 3/4(oops)
She shrugs. “I think you're asking the wrong person. Shit, if I knew Katya, Slider, and Ice were getting all hot and bothered about me I'd be clearing everyone out of my room to take advantage of it.” She grins. “Shit, if I'd thought I had a chance, I'd be chasing Ice all over the place. I bet she's a freak, man, look at her.” You laugh and shake your head. “I don't see that going over so well.” She echos your laugh, nodding. “Probably not, but it's a nice thought. Then again, man, have you seen Slider's hips? Cripes. And Katya...” She bites her lip. “Mmmmhhhh.” “So what would you do?” You ask. She shakes her head. “I'm not exactly the best person to ask, here.” She says. “You know that. Look, if it were me, I'd sit down with Katya, and try to straighten things out.” “Of course,” She continues, “If you want to talk, you'd best hurry, she's getting ready to leave for Dunottar for a few days to greet the incoming Russian matron and her aggressor witch.”“Russian- aren't we still at war with them?” You ask. “I mean, there's Putin's guys, I know, but..”She nods. “That's who these are. The matron is one he's vouching for, and the witch is too. He said he's known both of them quite a while.” “Well, wonderful.” You say.  “Where's she at? We should probably hammer this out before she goes.” “We can handle it when she gets back, I don't want to run the risk of it backfiring till after she's back here.”
>>29855905> “Where's she at? We should probably hammer this out before she goes.”Holy shit, it's actually happening.Quick! Before Surprise Russians!
>>29855905> “Where's she at? We should probably hammer this out before she goes.”

>>29855951Because there is very little possibility of putting our dick in her!

>>29855905[X] “Where's she at? We should probably hammer this out before she goes.”Also, holy shit! First time I made it to the very start of the thread!
>>29855905>[x] “Where's she at? We should probably hammer this out before she goes.”Let's knock this out before...>Russian matron and her aggressor witch.God dammit. Bet's on who it is? Best night of the week if you aren't in below zero weather!>>29855951Cause things.

>>29856577Holy hell I haven't heard that song in years
>>29856577Why won't they just make an Ace Combat HD collection for 4,5, and Zero? They've been making HD remasters for everything else.
>>29856525The guy who pulled out Tauberg's sword is here. Be careful!
>>29856671Because Namco hates making money
>[x] “Where's she at? We should probably hammer this out before she goes.”Its happening.
>>29856716What style have we been playing as anyway? Knight, Soldier, or Mercenary? There are three kinds of aces after all.
>>29856756I'd say Knight more or less all the way, slightly leaning soldier.
>>29856671There's actually some good news, if things pan out. The PS4 is supposed to be getting software emulation of PS2 titles in the future, and they're talking about the emulation allowing for HD resolutions.I don't care if I have to buy them again, I would buy AC4,5 and Zero again just to play in HD.
>>29856797Fuck dude I'd by the PS4 just for those games.
So any bets on Konstantina being the aggressor witch?
>>29856896almost counting on it
>>29856756>tg>Ever NOT playing a knightThough we have been known to go full mercenary. WAR CRIMES, FUCK YEAH!
>>29856896You're not getting my money.
[x] “Where's she at? We should probably hammer this out before she goes.”“So where's she at?” You ask, noting that you two have reached the end of the runway. Mav shrugs. “I dunno- oh, wait. No, I actually do know.” She says, checking her watch. “She's probably down in the hangar, getting her shit loaded. She's flying up on a RAF chopper, I think it was.”“Then why would she be down there?” You ask. “'Cos, in her words, she was anxious to get this foolishness over with.” She says, with another shrug.You snort. “I take it she's not too fond of being sent out as a greeting party? Why didn't they just come here anyway? All the other ones did.”Mav shrugs a third time. “I really don't know. Something with a traditional greeting to the witches of Scotland or some shit, hell Frank, why are you asking me?” “Cos you're here?” You say. “Pfft, yeah. You used that excuse for everything and you'd have known what tattoos I have. Too late now though, sucker!” She says with a laugh.“Damn, really?” you say, feigning disappointment. “Yes, really. Shit, you think I want to have to deal those ravening harpies thinking I stole their man or some shit? Damn, Frank, I thought we were friends!”You laugh at that, shaking your head. The two of you walk into the hangar built in under the castle from the open door to the tarmac. 1/2
>>29856896>>29856907Yeah, if Putin sent anyone else she'd kill them and wear their skin just for the chance to get close to Frank again.
Inside, it'd be cramped with even a few more jets- there's been serious talk of keeping your wyverns in their 'carrier' configuration, with wings folded and only opened up out on the tarmac, which is significantly bigger. You've noticed the place is pretty far removed from most land hangars you've been in as well- more memorabilia, it's half hangar, half museum. You noticed the propellers- curtiss constant-speed airscrews, you're told, mounted to the wall, a photo in between them. You keep meaning to go get a look at it, but you've always been sidetracked. There's a series of Strikers along the back- you've identified P-51s, Me-109s, and a whole host of other wartime models, all of them, you're told, maintained to perfect working order and brought out occasionally for memorial flights. There's a crew around your fighter- yours has been tagged the unofficial testbed, and most of the things mounted to it are later mounted to the twin's jet after some work. Downtuning, Clarissa called it- things that work for Merlin without a hiccup, she can barely power. They've been discussing installing a way to split the load between her and her sister, and you hope they can pull it off- your jets would be nigh unstoppable if they could. Mav taps you on the arm and motions that she's going to go join the group around your jet, leaving you to nod and find Katya, adjusting her bag for flight across her back. Her bag isn't quite packed full, but it's certainly more than you'd be taking for a few days. “Hello, Frank.” She greets, sounding nice enough. “What brings you down here? Come to say goodbye?” “It's hardly goodbye.” You say. “You're only going to be gone a day or two, aren't you?” She shrugs. “That is the plan, yes. We are at war, though, and things can happen.” > Say what?
>>29856938We need to talk. About what happened in the Tomcat.
>>29856797>Dogfighting Yellow-13, Ofnir Squadron, and Pixy>In HD
>>29856938"Well...goodbye."Turn and walk away.
>>29856969Well I guess this is good as any.>>29857025Very funny anon.
>>29856938Whatever we say, we need to make sure that the ground crews and anyone else loitering around (especially Maverick) don't listen in. They will never let us live down admitting that we aren't invincible avatars of some long forgotten god of aerial combat.
>>29856969In lieu of better ideas (and I'm horrible when it comes to dialogue) I'm going with this.
>>29856577RIP in peace chopper
> Say what?"Can we talk about the Tomcat beforehand? We dodged that issue long enough."
>>29856969Gonna add my support to this. She's been off since then...and then when she got assigned away from us on the Sara, we didn't talk with her then, either. We're long overdue for the chat.
>>29856938I'll second >>29856969 & >>29857144
>>29856969This works>>29856917>“Pfft, yeah. You used that excuse for everything and you'd have known what tattoos I have. Too late now though, sucker!”
>>29856938This >>29857144 and this >>29857095 are good.>curtiss constant-speed airscrews, you're told, mounted to the wall, a photo in between them.Well gee I wonder what that's about, ha!
>>29857239I can only imagine the things written on them>HAH! I ESCAPED>NO MINNA NO
>>29857504>Coitus constant-speed airscrewing
>>29857535sounds like bugs bunny
>>29857659I wonder, is there a display with rockets and a drop tank?
>>29856938>>29856969Seems the logical response.Sorry the character sheet hasn't been updated lately. I meant to this past week but we had several family emergencies. Not a real excuse, but just explaining why it isn't done. I'll try to get it up by next week.
>>29857912Another week really isn't much of a delay.
>>29857504and the breaking starts
>>29858272I am calling the pound if that shit starts
>>29858272What breaks? There are no breaks.
> Say what?You look around to make sure no one's in earshot- the nearest person is one of the crew, working on something in the small space between your jet exhausts- you're not sure what, since you're pretty sure that's just empty space, but you'll ask later. “We need to talk, then. About California. And what happened with the Tomcat.” You say, Stepping closer and dropping your voice. She starts, and you hear an intake of breath- but she nods. “Y-yes. I did not think you were going to bring that up. But not here, come. Follow me.” There's a series of offices cut into the rock walls along the sides of the hangar, and one of them- unoccupied, even devoid of furniture, serves as a convenient spot for some privacy. You both start at the same time, then stop awkwardly. She motions for you to go ahead. “Listen, I'm sorry.” You say. “I should have stuck with it on the ground, and I should have never taken mav up on her offer. It was stupid of me and it got you hurt.”She smiles sadly, shaking her head. “I do not think you owe me an apology.” She says. “You were doing as your instinct demanded. It is just...” She pauses and shakes her head again. “It is just that it made me realize you were not who I thought you were. This is not a bad thing, and it is not your fault.” She adds, hastily. “But...”“But you've been acting like it is.” You state. “If I'd have known it would cost me this...”“You would have done what differently?” She says. “Allowed it to be Tabitha? Perhaps told us no? No one had any reason to suspect anything until then. It is just...”1/2
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML4Jx76vSTkYo buddy. Still alive?
>>29858310Aww come on anon, it's there are no "Brakes"There are plenty of "Breaks" mostly in pelvises.
She pauses, wrapping her arms around herself. “Samantha is right. There is something there. I... felt it. It was terrifying. How she can- you can- “ She shakes her head. “It is not natural. We crashed because I was afraid, not because of anything you did.”“Oh no. None of that shit.” You state. “Look, we've all accepted there's something going on, yeah, ok. But don't you start blaming yourself for something you didn't do. It was my aircraft, it was my responsibility. I crashed, you got caught in it.”“If I had been Samantha, we would not have crashed.” She says. “We crashed because you are used to a level of support I cannot give. I do not think any witch other than her can, but that is not the point. It is not your fault because you cannot control yourself the same way we can. You were looking for support that just wasn't there, Frank.” “I flew the colonel's Corsair just fine.” you point out. “And that thing is a single seat prop plane that's like a horse-drawn cart compared to my jet. And I didn't have problem number one in that thing, and-” You state, carrying over her attempt to protest- “And I didn't have a single problem when I was flying with Orion or anywhere else, even with Merlin, up till what? Tanana?” She shrugs. “There is much we do not know.” She says, simply. “Yours and hers are unique talents. Not even the oldest records show anything like them. That is why we are here.” “So I keep hearing.” You state, drily. “But that's not the issue at hand, Katya.” She shakes her head. “I know this. I- I am sorry, Frank. I have been behaving poorly. Perhaps we should go see London when we get the chance? Just you and I?”  “I'd like that, yeah.” “Nah, I've got somewhere in mind.” (You totally don't, but you can make something up. Maybe Paris?)
>>29858386> “I'd like that, yeah.”
>>29858386> “I'd like that, yeah.”No reason to refuse, and it'd be kind of dickish to refuse at our reconciliation.
>>29858386> “I'd like that, yeah.”can't think of somewhere nice that wouldnt be a cliche and bomb cratered
>>29858386>[x] “I'd like that, yeah.”
>>29858386> “I'd like that, yeah.”Not like we have anything else to do.
>>29858386[X] “I'd like that, yeah.”
>>29858386> “I'd like that, yeah.”Might as well
 “I'd like that, yeah.”We are not going to get a permit to leave Britain. So London is really the best we can hope for in the short run.
>>29858386> “I'd like that, yeah.”As tempted as I am to say something ridiculous and crude, like 'my bed', it's best to just go with it in this case
>>29858386> “I'd like that, yeah.”I'd prefer Paris, but fat chance of that.
>>29858386>[x] “I'd like that, yeah.”On the way back we should stop by Eastchurch, ya know to find a watch shop.
>>29858386>[X] “I'd like that, yeah.”Honestly, can't think of anything better. What would be the London equivalent of Roman Holiday?
>>29858526Unless Conrad was/is also a gnome of living forfuckingever, he's long gone to the great mechanic shop in the sky
>>29858386>[x] “I'd like that, yeah.”Although at this point we really should stop stringing the witches around. It was kind of reasonable at first to hold to the idea of waiting until the war ended, but he's not stupid. He knows three of the Witches want him. If Katya still wants to pursue a relationship then I think at this point we kind of owe her a straight yes or no.If yes, then we put the shipping behind us and let Ice and Slider move on; if no, then we can pursue Ice or Slider and let Katya move on. But remaining indecisive isn't really tenable anymore except as harem comedy and it's getting old.
>>29858562>shop is run by his son>the word gnome comes up in conversation>cuckoo clock springs out and whaps us>>29858577I think that's what we're heading towards, honestly. Mav just called out the stakes and state of everything, and we're probably going to lock whatever route within the next few threads
>>29858577so we cant be friends anymore? go fuck your self
>>29858577Yeah, I'm getting sick of us being at our throats every single fucking time this comes up.
>>29858604Where the hell do you get that from? Of course Frank can still be friends. The end of the romantic tension, and resolution of the shipping conflict, would make it easier to be friends with the other Witches.Well, and maybe we could hang out with Mav some more afterward.
>>29858687And Goose.I really want more Goose.
>>29858687>resolutionNot while there are Russians around to ambush us, m'boy
>>29858706mav & goose are generally package deal
>>29858602One would hope, assuming surprise russians don't interrupt it.
>>29858723Think the Martians are going to take up that tradition?
>>29858723Aww Konstantina and Katya aren't that bad!
>>29858577Agreed.>>29858604He never said anything about that anon.>>29858562>implying he isn't pushing 100>he still punches with the same strength he punched Immelmann
>>29858736>implying surprise russians won't galvanize us into a dramatic pre-combat kiss and frantic post-debrief bouncing
>>29858780Fronk is generally too hospitalized for that.
>>29858766>Martians then show up in the middle of the fight>All that is heard is the sound of two prop engines >"Hello Boys! I'm BAAAAAAACK!!!"
>>29858859>then a Russian missile blows him out of the sky
>>29858859Wonder what happened to the first three
[x] “I'd like that, yeah.”You nod, venturing a smile. “I'd like that, yeah.” You say. She nods. “It will have to be later though,” She says, opening the door and motioning you out. “I am not looking forward to this. Ah, the difficulty in being the only Russian witch close to you and Samantha.” She laughs. “I expect to be doing nothing but answering questions.”“That bad, huh?” You ask, chuckling. “Well, no, and I am hoping they will have mail for me, but I am still not looking forward to this.” She says. “But I have been out of contact for a long time, and I suspect there will be many questions.” She glances sideways at you. “Especially about the nature of our friendship.”You grin. “Well, I am catnip on legs....”She laughs. “Indeed. That is why I plan to tell them I am carrying your child.”You have to work to not swallow your tongue. “You what?” You manage to croak out after a second. 1/2
>>29859711Well, it will likely be extremely effective.
She laughs. “It is a joke, yes? I was talking to Tabitha and Rachel, Rachel suggested it.” she says. “I would not have thought of it otherwise.”“Right.” You say, noting that it does sound like something she or Mav would say. “So what-”“I will tell them that we are close friends, and that is that.” She says. “I know nothing more about the nature of you and Samantha than they do,.”The thudding of rotor blades carries over the noise of the hangar- outside, in the evening light, you can see a RAF Puma flaring gently for a landing on the tarmac. “I suppose that is my flight.” Katya says, turning to you. “I will see you in a few days, Frank. Perhaps We can go to London in a week or two? I would like to see Trafalgar square.” You nod. “Sounds like a plan.” You watch her walk out to the chopper- you're about to turn around when you're hit from behind by an incredible concussive force. “Hi Frank!” your sister screams from atop your back. “What were you and Katya doooooing huh? Huh huh huh? I bet it was lewd was it lewd? Man I'd lewd her. Look at that butt!” Jessica! Mom raised you better. Besides. Slider has a better tail.  We were talking about a crash. Now get off.

>>29859740>[x] Jessica! Mom raised you better. Besides. Slider has a better tail.Although Katya has the better......Ears
>>29860243Hardly fair. Slider's familiar doesn't have ears. But fluffy fox ears are the best.
>>29860053>joking at our sister>hatedude what
>>29860243I have to disagree on that.Ice has the better fluffy ears. and fluffy tail.
>>29860266Every girl is good at her specific thing, I'd want a tail hug from Slider, but I want to scritch Katya behind the ears and see what happens.
>>29860276But Konstantina has fluffy ears and tail too...
>>29860297Yes but cant beat a snow fox.
>>29860297How fluffy are we talking here?
>>29860332That's subjective anon.
>>29860297True, but every time we see her. I imagine her as a loli or the girl from Log horizon everytime I see her
>>29860341Tundra wolf + girl madly in love fluffy.
>>29860297Stalinka is indecent, and does not know where babies come from. Disqualified
>>29860341Someone posted Nureha in the last thread as a possible Konstantina... Really fluffy.
>>29860266>>29860276I'm pretty happy with the Tiger ears myself.
>>29860409Damn that's fluffy.
>>29860275Go look at all the comments on the votes against joking about Silder's tail.
This is some pretty good banter.
>>29860409If Konstantina's as fluffy as Kureha, then...well...Kinda want
>>29860480I miss the sky. We should try to get romantic to draw out the Russians.
>>29860697Well we have a horny little sister on our back. We can work with that right away.
[x] Jessica! Mom raised you better. “Jessica!” You say, gathering your arms under you and pushing up- she seated fairly far back, enough so that you can still manage a push up- “Mom raised you better. And besides, Slider has a better tail.”“Hmmm, true. True.” She says, sounding almost human. “But Katya has better hips.” You laugh, shifting your weight and rolling, forcing Jessica to either abandon her seat or get crushed. She wisely moves. “Like hell she does. Anyway. What do you want, squirt?” “Can't I just come see my favorite big brother?” She asks, pouting. “Do I always want something?” You think for a second, then nod. “Yeah, you pretty much do. What do you want?” “You're no fun. Tabby wanted me to make sure you were ok and had a witch with you and sent me because she said she had a headache and a lot of work to catch up on and I should go find you instead of trying to sneak more coffee out of people and talking to her because she was busy. Patty said you were down here talking to Katya and I think she thinks you were doing something dirty too but she didn't seem so sure and you weren't were you?” “No.” You respond. “We were just talking, that's all.” “Well that's no fun.” Jessica says. “But anyway you're here and I think Katsumi was on her way down and hey is that Samantha? Hi Samantha!” Merlin- who was just walking around the nosewheel of the wyvern with one of the striker techs, stops in her tracks and looks straight at you two. “Oh. H-hi Jessica. Hi F-frank.” She says, taking a slow step back around the wheel. “I-I uh... I'm busy s-so I c-can't talk....”You'd be able to tell she was lying, even without the blush.  You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.  Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.
>>29860531Well, it is a bit of a mood swing, having a serious fucking conversation and then our sister rolls in and is like "DID YOU BANG, DIDYA DIDYA?". I mean, if being how she is keeps her from being a psychological wreck, that would be one thing, but at some point the girl may need to put on her warface. Personally, I do not feel that time is right now, so jokes about Slider are good. The problem is that Jessica is like this 100% of the time, as far as we know.
>>29860732[X] Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.She is overdue for some teasing.
>>29860732 Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.IS HER BOYFRIEND HERE. HE IS, ISN'T HE.
>>29860732>[x] Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.You smell that? It smells like Irish-Japs.
>>29860732> Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.I think a certain boy has come to visit...
>>29860732>[X] You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.I don't want to put her on the spot.
>>29860732> Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.I smell weakness.
>>29860732> You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.Merlin's hard enough to work with alone, no sense in making her clam up harder by interrogating her with our sister right there.
>>29860732> Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.Boyfriend is here isn't he? We need to have nice chat with him. And borrow some of Silders shotguns.
>>29860732Oh dear.I wonder who the tech is.
>>29860732> Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew."Wait a minute... I smell HORMONES! YOUR BOYFIREND IS HERE ISN'T HE!?"
>>29860732> Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.Kenshin time?
>>29860732>[x] You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.Am I the only one who realizes that an ill timed tease, especially from jessica might be do more harm than good?Or did eveyone put their brains way to PILOT?
>>29860732> Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.
>>29860817>Or did eveyone put their brains way to PILOT?Are there other settings?
>>29860732> You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.Giver 'er the look. She'll know.>>29860814Obviously it's the guy she told Frank about.
>>29860812http://youtu.be/V_Y9SQhcIjw?t=9sA realistic portrayal of Frank meeting Merlin's boyfriend
>>29860732Talk with her later. Jessica needs a stern talking too about the quality of hips
>>29860732[x] You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.
yet again the castle effects the pilot!
>>29860732 > Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.Merlinnnnn
>>29860838Yes considering Frank's supposed to A) professional and B) good big brother to Merlin.And right now I think hte setting should be concerned, not having Jessica run her mouth. Even Young had a notion of a time when to knock it off.
>>29860817Doesn't have to be teasing.
>>29860732> You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.The last thing we need when talking about merlin's love life is Jessica
>>29860732 Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.
>>29860732[X] Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.
>>29860817Are you somehow suggesting that there is any acceptable course of action that isn't giving Merlin an airplane ride in front of her potential boyfriend?
>>29860732> Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.Show yourself fiend!You who dares asks for Merlin's hand!
>>29860883With Jessica involved it will be, girl can't keep her mouth shut.>>29860872More like bored SWQ fans being in hijink withdrawl.
>>29860817This castle does things to the people in it. Horrible, yet entertaining things.
>>29860732>[x] Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.well time to jump him in to the crew!
>>29860732> You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.>>29860817You're probably right. Also, Merlin being comfortable with somebody who isn't fronk is a GOOD THING
>>29860732> Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.I think a certain boy is here.Time to get a shotgun.
>>29860904Now that's just going to far.
>>29860959>shoot in ceiling
>>29860732>[x] You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.Seriously guys. WTF
>>29860981Only if we sound as cowboy as possible.
>>29860998What seems to be the problem?
>>29860732>[x] You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here. "Don't do anything too crazy.">>29860867>Fronk pulls out sidearm "I just got out of the hospital and I ain't going back!"
>>29860732> Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.Doroboneko
>>29861012We could get Mav to do it
>>29860732 >[x] Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.
>>29861058Doesn't Mav actually have an SAA lying around somewhere too?
>>29861042Probably what >>29860928said. Let the damn girl be happy, it'll be good for her ptsd
>>29861096Yeah, I sometimes wonder if she's actually Kathy's descendent.
>>29860732>[x] You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.no cockblocking merlin
>>29860732>[x] Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.WERE IS HE!
>>29861097I suggested the other option because I think Fronk meeting her boyfriend - and possibly APPROVING of him - would be better than her feeling like she's hiding something from her hero.
>>29860732>[x] You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here. Seriously dudes give ehr some fucking alone time with her boy. stop being cunts
>>29861138My reasoning too.If shes keep hiding and running, she'll get into a habit.
>>29860732>[X] You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here.
>>29861138I mean, this would be alright, but we'll have to like, gag Jessica and then bolt her to the floor.
>>29860732> Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew.If Jessice starts shit we calmly apply boot to ass and continue without her. Maybe warn her before hand. Maybe.
>>29860732>[x] You'll discuss this with her later. Without Jessica here."Jess, I got Merlin with me now, go sic Mav"
>>29861185We can sic her on Slider or something. We owe her for the Carrying Your Child bit.
>>29861236Slider just said that because she wishes it was her. Y'know, after getting married and as the result of a loving night which used a bed, covers, hand holding, and the missionary position.
>>29861236>>29860732New Plan>"Jessica, go say high to Slider for us, we need to discuss Crew things with Merlin"
>>29861275Dude, at least spoiler that shit. This is a family message board.
>>29861275Y-you can't post that on a blue board
gonna be a slight delay on this one fellas- i need food badly, and there's no leftovers so i gotta cook. discuss it out a bit if you want, or not. haha. I'm a QM, not a cop.
>>29861482I think a general method is siccing Jessica on Slider and confronting Merlin in private right now.
>>29861482>yfw ghost was actually an MP. We're on to you pal
>>29861520That's YOUR method. Don't try to pretend otherwise.
Rolled 41>>29861554Feels today?
>>29861558Then provide the counter idea instead of just saying 'no.'Also, that was SUPPOSED to say it was just my idea, though I saw at least one mirror of it. I forgot to delete part of the post when I was changing it.
>>29861275You forgot cuddling.
>>29861520I can get behind this method
>>29861524take that shit to /d/
>>29861482>I'm a QM, not a cop.Well if you were you'd be policing this lewd >>29861275 I'd hope. Even though I completely approve.
>>29861601I thought that was implied. This IS Slider, after all.
How much gripping strength does Slider get out of her tail?
>>29861626Well you know, I like to put out every juicy detail.
>>29861670How much strength does a boa have? Now add the fact that Sliders tails is bigger then the boa and add magic. She ain't letting go.
>>29861650...Post it nw?Since Ghost is eatin
That said, Slider writes Frank x Ice fanfictions. For her part, Merlin's probably shipped Frank with damn near everyone he's met in that journal of hers. Except for Merlin herself. She's not for lewds, after all.
>>29861745if anything she'd write stories with someone like her but with a body like Slider/Ice/Katya's as Frank pays attention to them.
>>29861736It's a pretty long bit, and I'd want Ghost to okay it first
>>29861745Even the plane and the long forgotten mistress Paperwork?
>>29861745What does Konstantina write?Does it involve Head pats and Frank taking off his pilots jacket?
>>29861806Who do you think WROTE Papermerlin and Ghostdiva?>>29861812Eh, probably something about her and Frank holding hands and then Comrade Stork showing up. I dunno, we've already established that I prefer White Russians.
Join me...in saluting Captain Bishop!
>>29861812>>29861850we need more konstantina stories
>>29861812THE BUTCHER PATS KONSTANTINA ON HEADBY: KONSTANTINA "HUSBAND OF BISHOP" STALINKAKonstantina is good and pretty witch, and Frank loves her forever. One day, Frank patted Konstantina on head, and they had all the babies forever. Socialism overtakes pathetic captalist strongholds worldwide, and we hold hands on your 4th of July as symbol of forever love.THE END
>>29861812I can see her drawing pictures in crayon that are about her and Fronk doing various things, mostly innocent. Though some have gory details.
>>29861926My sides. Goddamn, Hornet.
>>29861926My heart is moved!
>>29862018My Dick is moved!

>>29861926Cute Couple Continuing Perpetually
>>29862277oh god my sides
>>29862277Pretty sure the word "Blog" hasn't been invented/Otherwise, 9/10, would tell again.
>>29862442Russia is just that much more advanced that the capitalists
>>29862557But Google tells me that the word for blog in Russian is blog.How can it proceed the invention of the loan word they used to describe the invention? RIDDLE ME THIS товарищ!
>>29862673oh god that song
>>29862667Why do you assume that the Russian word is a loaner from English, and not the other way around, hm?
Ghost hurry. We are running out of things to argue about. We already agree that Slider is best and Konstantina is adorable.
>>29862769Because I understand how "Etymology" works?
>>29862842Let's talk about planes and how to explode them.
>>29862842All we need now is Ice is sexy and Katya is hot
>>29862870or how about how fronk is going to be hunted for his BOUNTY now
>>29862843You have been tricked by the revisionist ways of the Capitalists!
>>29862893oh ya the reds put a bounty out on frank I forgot about that
>>29862952I think you're using the wrong meaning of BOUNTY therehe is BOUNTIFUL
>>29862893As if people aren't fucking terrified of Frank. The reaction of the Red Dreads' escorts when he went to egress is proof enough.I want to know what the allies think of him.And what are Frank's various nicknames again? I know there's Eagle of Tanana and something involving Butcher based on Konstantina's love-driven rants.
>>29862922Sorry, but Liberty Prime told me Communism was a lie, and he's like, 4-5 stories tall, so imma take his word for it. >>29862952>>29862893Are we sure that's what they mean when we say "BOUNTY" like that in all caps?
>>29862970Bucher of My Heartthe Bering Sea
>>29862970"Those Assholes""Angel of Death"Something poetic from a Japanese dude.
At this rate we might have to end the thread early or something.....at least we made up with Katya, All that's left to do is tie up ice, hold hands with Slider, head pat Kostania, and snark with Katsumi
Fronk x Katya x Ice x Slider x Konstantina x Katsumi x Merlin
>>29863008>Lucky 7 solutionThis is not acceptable, no.
>>29863005>>29862970The Revenant.The Ghost of Christmas Presents
>>29862976as in stalin and or red command are willing to pay for him to be killed or captured
>>29863008>no Wyvern in Merlin's place>Merlin being there at all
>>29863008Cut out Merlin and we have perfect end. Merlin is little sister route and I refuse the Ore No Imoutou route!
>>29863087what happened to him using that as his callsign, its badass and he used it once or twice after tanana, now it seems to have disapeared, even though the revenants insignia are still on the wyverns tail
Fronk x Ice is the one true answerl
>>29863128I can only remember his callsign being mentioned once, maybe twice, in recent memory.
>>29863122I doubt she feels the same way, though /tg/ has strange standards,, lewding a girl that looks younger than Merlin yet not Merlin herself.>>29863128Ghost likely forgot about it.
>>29863087>The Ghost of Christmas PresentsI go back and read that thread every few weeks, makes me warm and fuzzy inside.
>>29863185>/tg/ has strange standards,, lewding a girl that looks younger than Merlin yet not Merlin herselfHuh?
>>29863140Fucking barbarian scum. Clearly Katya and Slider are the only two options.
>>29863255if this was /a/ wed be lewding our sister.
>>29863198Yeah. I wish I'd been around for that. It's one thing to read the threads in the archives, actually participating is much better.
>>29863290Katya, Ice, and Slider are best girls don't cut her out! Everyone else is downlodable content.
>>29863128"Warhound" fit better. Him latching onto a target and pursuing it is complete disregard for anything else became that much more appropriate as the quest went on.
>>29863316I know that but I don't see what that has to do with the bit I quoted.
>>29863331We could have prevented the Tomcat crash. then again it was good character developemtn
>>29863128I don't think our callsign has been mentioned narratively in a while. Nor, I think, do people frequently call us "Wardog" either. Personally, I think that while it was cool and darkly humorous when we got right out of the hospital, Frank's really avoided mentioning Tanana like that since we got back, probably because we saw how bad it tore up the squadron. They might not appreciate it if we bandied the event about so lightly, even if Frank is pretty over it (specifically. I understand there's still general anxiety about dying in a horrible firey wreck). Now that we're gonna end up dealing with a bunch of matrons, we could probably start saying we owe our amazing powers to being the risen dead. Or being one with the machine spirits, since we're like, minimum 1% Tomcat now. When there's no more room in BOUNCE Heaven, Revenant shall fly the sky.
>>29863290I dunno, man. Ice seems to have a better shot than Slider at the moment, though I like both quite a bit.
>>29863356/tg/ is no stranger than any other board was my point.
>>29863355Revenant fit how he always comes back almost dead
>>29863368Warhound. Wardog is a completely different unit.
>>29863421Right, sorry. Shows how much it's been used lately.
>>29863255I was referring to Ghost from PJ witches 89 who looks and acts young yet anon tries to lewd her.
>>29860732>otherDitch Jessica and Merlin. Run down Katya. Kiss her before she goes.
>>29863536Headpats are not lewd, you big silly
>>29863536I think we mostly do that to bother this Ghost.
>>29863536Pretty sure all the lewd comments are poking fun at, you know, the Ghost running this.>implying headpats are lewdSilly goose.
>>29863625Goose is lewd
How long until nuclear jets?
>>29863703Well she does have skills for the heals and you know what that means.
>>29860732>[x] Go fuck Jessica in a closet. Naughty girls need good hard dickings.
>>29863750Don't know, but make sure Fronk has kids before stepping into the cockpit of a VF-1, because unless they got reeeeally good rad shielding he ain't gonna be having any after.
>>29863756>>29863754Alright Ghost, please eat faster, we've hit the limit of the conversation with out you. Maybe just shout some random gibberish real quick, give us something new to talk about.
>>29863817Would people have been interested in Katya romantically if she wasn't the magic number of "18 or older"?
I fear the storm of the week may have claimed ghost.
>>29863817Just talk about Ghost lewds. It's guaranteed to rile him up.
>>29863873I will lick the stockings off her.
[x] Oh no. No no. No secrets between crew. You look at Jessica, who grins. You nod- then catch her by the collar. “Behave.” You warn. “This is important. Behave or you will regret it.”“Ooh, whatcha gonna dooooo?” Jessica practically sneers- it's always a challenge with her. “Do you want to find out?” You ask, looking at her with cold, dead eyes. You stare at her long enough she flinches, then breaks eye contact. “N-no. Sorry Frank, I'll behave, I promise.” “Good.” you say with a nod, blinking. “Oh Merllllinnnnnn....” You say, casually walking around the nose of the jet, your sister trailing slightly behind. “So, whatcha working on?” You ask, noting she's standing awful close to a guy in the IJN's Camo- jetai, you think they call it. She spins around with a squeak, the blush evident on her face. “W-well, um... w-we were i-installing new jets a-all day a-and did a-a lot of work on the a-avionics and p-putting in a new canopy a-and some n-new sensors a-and working on the com-computer a-and....” “Sounds like a lot of work.” You say, impressed. Even for a full crew, that's easily a week's worth of work. “N-not really, Ke- er, ah, K-katsumi's striker t-tech was a-a lot of help and...” She stammers. “I-I can show you t-tomorrow?” She says, kind of hopefully. “Well, I'm pretty busy tomorrow, and I'd like to get a walk around sooner, rather than later.” You say. “Especially with new jets in there. What's new? And You're Katsumi's striker tech, huh? Nice to meet you, I'm Lieutenant commander Frank Bishop, USN.” You say, holding out a hand- but tacking on your rank anyway. He accepts the offered handshake- and while you don't see a challenge in his eyes, you do see steel in there when he looks at you. “Lieutenant Sakamoto Kenji.” He says. “IJN.” 1/2
>>29863873Wasn't Merc doing something of that nature?
>>29863873Or Red/Tarin/Pierece. Tarin cuts and Red heals and keeps Pierce going all night.Ghost is a fan.
>>29863932>Sakamoto KenjiI think we've found Mio/Sean's descendent.
>>29863932HAPPENINGWE HAVE MET THE ENEMY who desires to steal little sista
>>29863835Depends on how far below that "magic number" she was. Age of consent in most states is like, 16 anyway. Actually, this is something that I don't think comes up a lot, how old is Frank again?>>29863873You are magic good sir.If that didn't work I was going to have to say his name thrice.
You nod, with a grin. “Thought so. So you're my RIO's boyfriend, huh?” He nods. “I have that honor, yes.” Physically, he's not impressive- but neither is he disappointing. His shockingly red hair stands at contrast with his skin, which is slightly paler than both Katsumi and Ayumi's, even if just a hair. You can't help but notice that, while they're standing close togther, neither he nor Merlin is touching the other- though you're not sure if that's because they're not sure what to do, or if it's got to do more with public decency and modesty than anything else. “You've been helping down here, I guess?” You ask, looking over at the jet. “Y-yes, when I have time.” He says. “Her imperial highness' strikers are maintained to a very high level, but it's not th-” He cuts off, his eyes focusing off beyond the wall for a second. “S-sorry.” He says, looking back at you. “Thought I heard something. Her strikers are kept to a very high level of maintenance, but it's not that hard to keep them there, so I help with your aircraft, when I can.” “H-he's been a lot of h-help!” Merlin says, suddenly. “H-he gets a-a lot of the c-concepts when I-I explain them, w-with the others I-I have to d-draw pictures s-sometimes. W-without him t-this would h-have taken a lot l-longer”  Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble. You sure he should be helping, Merlin? This is pretty advanced stuff.
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.Hangars are dangerous, after all.
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.Paler skin and shocking red hair. I wonder.
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.
>>29864030no.....no no no
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.We must find him when he's alone. So we can nice long chat with him.
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.She wouldn't let him muck around with things if she didn't have faith in his ability.>He cuts off, his eyes focusing off beyond the wall for a second. “S-sorry.” He says, looking back at you. “Thought I heard something.Wonder what tripped the sense?
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.Seems nice enough
>>29863932>Lieutenant Sakamoto Kenji> SakamotoGuess we know who wears the pants in that relationship.
>>29864002>[X] Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.>What did you hear?
>>29864002[X] Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.Damn and he was doing so well before he started stuttering.
>>29864002>[x] Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.We'll wait until we're alone with him to give him the "if you hurt her..." speech. Which will probably just be the "I'll trounce you in an honorable bout of manly fisticuffs, but you'll wish I'd killed you because the Witches will FIND YOU" speech.>>29864079I mean, it is still Imperial Japan. The red hair is probably bad enough. Unless anime makes it cool somehow.
I say we trust Merlin to pick a good guy. We don't need to play scare tactics on the kid.
>>29864002[X] Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.Also airplane ride time.
>>2986399624-26I call it a magic number because if a girl is over it, anon's interested, otherwise "not for lewds, little sister only", an example would be Red PJ witches 89 when it was revealed she was 18, a bunch of guys changed their minds about her fast>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble..
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.But first we must ask "Helping you with the plane huh?" Then wag our eyebrows like THE ROCK himself.
>>29863932>You ask, looking at her with cold, dead eyes.I see we managed to find the cold of our grave and use it.It's never far away. All we have to do is put a hand to our heart.
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble."You a virgin?""Yes sir.""Keep it that way; ain't gonna be no fuckin' tonight."
>>29864149Still, Janice masterrace
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.> You sure he should be helping, Merlin? This is pretty advanced stuff.Both. This is a bleeding edge piece of US equipment. As nice as it is that Merlin has found someone on par with her to help, we've got to consider that someone might get butthurt that a foreigner is assisting her.It's not about us not trusting Merlin or Kenji, it's about them not getting nailed by some secret squirrel.
>>29864158Wasn't The Rock's thing the single eyebrow raise?>>29864185Merlin would explode and stutter at Frank until he died of laughter.
>>29864197Tarin is, remember that smile
>>29864149That was one guy samefagging his displeasure over perceived jailbait not actually being jailbait
>>29864158If it was anyone other than merlin, we could probably make some kind of joke about fluid dynamics or curved surfaces or something else. But given that it is Merlin and both of them are half way to a nervous wreck, we probably should save that for later.
>>29864197OOOH Yeah! Fine example of woman, sort of about time a woman appared in a girl instead of girls.
>>29864002[x] Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.>He cuts off, his eyes focusing off beyond the wall for a second. “S-sorry.” He says, looking back at you. “Thought I heard somethingHellcow inc
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.In order to gauge his worthiness, we can't just be a protective older brother. We must become The Protective Older Brother.
>>29864002> Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.Emphasize trouble
>>29864247No...it can't be!
>>29864231Muh nigga.>>29864245Janice has only, what, a year over Tarin?Wasn't it Pierce - 25, Janice - 23, Tarin - 22, & Red - 18?
>>29864291I was speaking more of the norms of SWQU89, Tarin's an exception to any norms.
>>29864291It's level maturity she displays over the others not so much the age, Anon.And really Tarin is Tarin.
>>29864366And the titties.Them Raker tits.
>>29864349Well I see what you mean. She's the only one so far that's really came off as motherly.>>29864366I'm a bit surprised, really. I'm 2/2 for SWQ spinoffs where I'm fine with whoever the MC ends up with. Everyone's great.
So, at what point is it most hilarious to ask Kenji if he's armed with his "special" whistle?
>>29864284IT COMES FOR OUR SOULS!
>>29864366Tarin is Tarin which means best girl! You make that sound like a bad thing
>>29864420"You know what this is?""An... emergency whistle, sir.""You're wrong. It's a beacon. Which you will use so I can find you in the event my RIO is about to be... compromised. Am I clear?""Y-yessir."
>>29864405Personally I want Tarin to win cause that smile. Raker is my second favorite so i won't mind too much (though I want Tarin!) Red head, still little sister in my mind
>>29864450Well I wasn't saying it's a bad thing. Just pointing out like >>29864349 where she's kinda of the exception to a lot things that SWQ girls tend to display in terms of characteristics.
I wish for more time in the air.
>All the men on base are issued whistles>They know that they don't help>Make pacts with the other men in their unit to come running to eachother's aid if they hear one>One day a dude gets cornered by a witch and blows his whistle>'Haha sucker' as it only draws more witchesNever trust your buddies when it comes to women
>>29864497Like what? I like Raker, I really do especially the scenes we had with her but....Tarin.
>>29864591As much as I want to swear a vow to always help a brother who blows his whistle...It's a terrible fucking idea. You'd just be adding one more guy to the mix witches mob the location. We'd need, like, a team in Juggernaut suits carrying giant fire-extinguishers filled with icewater.
>>29864665Just flashbang the whole crowd and then extract the men before fleeing. Obviously the suits would have to conceal the wearer's identity.
>>29864665>implying there isn't one already set up.Always have a QRF. ALWAYS.
>Every man on base makes a pact blow their whistle once and head to where they heard a whistle, the first one he he hears multiple one quickly>Witches pick up on this>Start heading for whistles even if they know the guy they're after is somewhere else>Because he'll be heading there tooAnd thus began the great rape orgy.They even have ears and tails, we MGQ-lite naow.
>>29864701>>29864737You try this once or twice and then you discover that the dudes you 'rescued' are pissed at you for interrupting and that they were only using the whistles to establish plausible dependability
>>29864701I like the icewater idea better, but I suppose flashes could work. Everyone wears like a welding mask or some more professional flash/heat protection.>>29864737Normally, I'd believe this, except the whistle is an old, under-used reg, and the only people who know it's a terrible idea are witches, the people witches tell, and experienced mixed unit guys. Also, aren't we in a witch holding right now? Why would they prep an anti-witch unit in their own base?>>29864828No, I think everyone knows that that's not a good idea. And if they don't, fuck that guy. He's an asshole.
>>29864862You sure are putting a lot of thought into avoiding sex with attractive women.
>>29864862It's why weapons aren't allowed to be carried by rank and file soldiers when on base. When something goes wrong, and with the age group given something will most certainly go wrong, you gotta be prepared for it.
>>29864828>plausible dependability>Think he would take responsibility?>I dunno, maybe.
>>29864927wow autocorrect got me pretty good there
>>29864921Death by snu snu is still death.There are better ways brother.
>>29864820CHARLES MAH HEAD
>>29864977I don't follow.
>>29864079That relationship was founded on "I'm going to fuck you until it's rape." Let's hope he takes after his grandpa more than her
[x] Well, glad to have the help, then Kenji. Just don't get yourself in trouble.“Well,” You say, nodding. “Glad to have your help. Just don't get yourself in trouble, ok?” He nods. “Of course. Her imperial highness knows I'm helping, she cleared it.” You nod. “Yeah, and what about our CO.” Merlin looks at you. “S-She doesn't k-know... I-I didn't think it would b-be a p-problem...”“I'll handle it.” You say. “If he's helping...”“Y-yes! H-he's helping a-a lot.” She says, hurriedly and adjusting herself a hair closer to him. “Well, alright. I'll handle Ice, no problem. When do you think we'll be ready to fly?” You ask. She shrugs. “I-I don't k-know. P-probably not t-tomorrow, maybe d-day after?” You nod. “Sounds fine. I won't say anything about that to the boss yet, you can tell her when we're up. So, new stuff?” 1/2
“Y-yeah.” Merlin says, her blush fading. She points up at the canopy- a one way, gold tinted plexiglass replacing the previous armor plate. “T-that's the big n-new one.” She says. “I-it's got a-a display s-system l-like the o-old one but you can use your eyes n-now too. T-they thought it was a g-good idea if the COFFIN w-went down.”“And the sensors?” “R-refining the o-one I designed.” She says. “I-it's been f-fully integrated n-now. I-I even w-worked on it s-so it c-can detect things l-like us. W-we have f-full d-datalink now, t-to, so w-we can use d-data from linked f-forces with the c-canopy display.”You nod. “Sounds like a winner. And the jets?” “E-experimental units. G-general Dynamics m-made them based o-on my notes. T-they work like o-our old ones, but they w-were designed that way, so they use l-less power from me.” “And the avionics changes and computer upgrades are the same?” Merlin nods. “M-more or less.” She says. “Just a f-few upgrades to keep t-them working with the n-new systems. A-and there's some reliability u-upgrades.”“Glad to hear it.” You say. “So day after tomorrow?” She nods. “Y-yeah.”You grin. “You anxious too?” She hesitates, then nods. “Y-yeah.”
That's it for the night! Hoping the pacing was a bit better, I am working on that. We'd have knocked out more, I think, but I do have to be to work in the morning (at least, as of right now, we'll see how long that lasts) No further news, we'll try, *try* to run early next week, though saying that seems to bring on this curse nonsense that everyone seems to talk about. IDK. Anyway, guys, hope you enjoyed the run, and we'll see you next week! till then fellas, cheers!
>>29865200Thanks, Ghost. G'night.Now where's dem feels? Hornet?
>>29865200I have waited a long time for Merlin's boyfriend to show up. Fun run Ghost!
>>29865200Thanks for running!
>>29865253http://pastebin.com/u/HORRUU-NEEEETOOHThis is gonna run a bit long tonight.-For a week, it seemed like the Russians gained a little more ground every day. Holly MacLeod was worried about it. She was worried about lots of things. Although the Reds were still far away from Elemdorf, there was an increased sense of urgency on the base. The Army was doing the best it could, but round-the-clock CAS and routine air strikes on the Soviet advance was only slowing them down, much to the embarrassment of the Air Force. The distance that separated the front line from where Holly slept during the long Alaskan nights didn't seem quite as massive when she flew. In the evenings, if the conditions were right, she could see the rapid flashes of explosions on the horizon while she and Chris flew BARCAP in their assigned sectors. It was an eerily beautiful sight to behold. Morale was falling among the witch wings of Elemdorf even as kill counts increased. It was one thing to tell them to try and keep their chin up and do the best they could, but it was another thing for them to rationalize that despite their best efforts, they were losing. The 3rd Wing was getting run ragged by double-patrols in hunt of Russian night witches. Holly recognized the importance of flying herself to exhaustion chasing phantasmal radar contacts across the sky, just as much as the next witch. She was also getting fed up with having nothing to show for it.Commander Kazanski had tried pressing for more information about Bishop's whereabouts earlier in the week, but when it became clear that Holly "wasn't having any luck", she stopped asking. That suited the Colonel just fine: it was hard to watch the hope drain out of Kazanski's face every time she asked. Holly knew that she'd have to say *something* eventually- she just wasn't sure how to say it, and dreaded having to say it.
>>29865358It wasn't all bad. Since the new patrols had started, she'd gone back to Will's barracks almost every night for a movie and dinner. Knowing that Will was actually waiting for her back at Elemdorf was enough to put a smile on her face. For a few hours a night, he let her forget about her duties, forget about the phone call, forget about Bishop and Spellcaster. She could relax, and just be Holly MacLeod. It hadn't occurred to her how much she'd needed that in her life until she actually experienced it. Later tonight they were going to watch Big Trouble in Little China; it had been her turn to pick. It worried Holly that she was looking forward to movie nights as much as she was, as though it were a crack in her Wing Commander armor. But she wanted to see that movie again, and more importantly she wanted to see it again with Will. She just wasn't sure she deserved to. "You'll see him soon, hon." Chris' voice snapped Holly out of her thoughts. "Is it really that obvious?" Holly yawned. The double patrols were really starting to add up. It didn't help that Will's poncho made her feel comfortably warm, even thousands of feet off the ground. Comfort and tiredness were a terrible combination. "Of course it is." The blonde laughed over the radio, sliding into formation next to Holly. "We share a room. I've seen that look on your face all week." "Well, I won't be seeing him for long." She was clearly disappointed. "Crew rest, Chris, crew rest." "So go sleep in his room." "N-no way!" Holly cried out. "Like that's the easiest thing in the world, gawd!" "It can be..." Chris let her voice trail off suggestively. "We're not like that at all! " Chris didn't press the subject any further, to Holly's relief. She was pretty sure she'd show up very bright on a thermal scope at that moment. Will was a swell guy and all, but come on, they'd practically just met!
Merlin is stuttering up a storm. How do we deal with this?
>>29865401"Alright, just kidding. Kinda." Chris gave Holly a friendly pat on the shoulder. "I should know better." "A-anyway-" Holly stifled another yawn as Chris giggled at her. "I was gonna grab chow with Will after we finished all of our paperwork for this patrol." Holly looked over at her friend, frowning suddenly. "Sorry I've been ditching you all week- you're more than invited to join us. Late lunch is better than nothing, right?" "Don't be silly, Holly, you two should enjoy what you have," Chris said. "Why don't you let me handle the paperwork so you can have more time with Will?" "I'm a Wing Commander, not a high school student!" Holly replied heatedly, trying to deny how good that idea actually sounded. "I can't accept that offer no matter how much that appeals to-" She cut herself off, taking a deep breath. "Lunch isn't going anywhere in the short time it takes for me to file a patrol report." "Truuuuuueeeeee..." Chris grinned, "Y'know, if I do go to lunch with you guys, I could ask him if he has a twin brother or something... eh heh..." For a moment, Holly also thought about Will having a twin brother. She promptly lost a few hundred feet of altitude. - "CIRCE 1-1, your flight path is clear, maintain your present course," Lt. Wells spoke over the radio with all the enthusiasm a depressed 15-year-old girl could muster. "Welcome back to Elemdorf." 'Poor kid...' Holly really had meant to try and talk to the young Spellcaster witch. After barely managing to normalize relations with Kazanski, Holly wanted to sit down with Wells to at least explain herself to the kid. However, if it was intimidating just to think on how to break the news about Bishop to the Icelady, Holly was downright scared of talking to Wells. The last thing Holly wanted to do was somehow make things worse for the young witch... but something had to be done soon.
>>29865447As she led the four-witch flight around to make a direct approach towards the 3rd Wing's hangar, Holly found herself looking for Will, thankful for the benefits of her eagle familiar. He waiting for her again, sitting at the driver's seat of his small cart, her striker stand attached to the back.Holly was more than happy to be coming home, if just for that.There was heavier activity on the ground today. Two new runways were under construction on the northern side of the base, prefab hangars springing up near them. With more squadrons being assigned to Elemdorf from the lower 48, an expansion had been long overdue. Holly suspected that something big was going to go down over the next few days, but all she had for the moment were her best guesses and the rumor mill. There was no denying that a lot of men, witches, and material had been shifting around on the US side of the line. Intel had been directing reconnaissance aircraft and witches to try and pin down the location of that damned Soviet flying carrier, which had been making a real nuisance of itself since the war had-"Hey Holly, do you see that?" Chris asked over the radio, pointing towards the west. It only took Holly a few seconds to find what her wingwitch was surprised by, and she could see it in greater detail."Some kind of steelwing." Holly squinted slightly, looking for markings of some sort. The aircraft banked towards Elemdorf, and she was able to get a look at its overall shape. It was a vicious looking jet, like nothing she'd seen in any aircraft recognition guide she'd studied. Forward swept wings folded outward for better low speed stability, she assumed. From the side it looked almost like a honed dagger pointed at the heart of the base, with no clearly visible external stores. What was most interesting about the aircraft was the distinct lack of a visible canopy. Where she imagined it should be was a small bump of metal closer to the nose.
>>29864002I'm honestly surprised that this hasn't been mentioned yet.>Take him aside for a moment>Place both hands on his shoulders, look him dead in the eye>"Merlin is not for lewds"
>>29865486It was like a personal statement to its enemies, a demand to be feared and respected."I... I don't know what that is. Can't see markings from this angle-" "Whaddyamean you don't know, Eagle-eyes?" Chris asked, readying her M249. Holly and the other two witches prepped their own weapons."I mean I don't know." Holly shot back, taking another look at her MFD and wondering why she had no contact on the display, no IFF squawk. 'Okay, now I'm officially worried.' Holly increased her magic flow to the strikers, her fellow witches trailing close behind. Her eyes stayed locked onto the unknown fighter, actually considering having her flight make ready to engage and wondering where the hell the rest of Elemdorf's CAP was. She switched back to the tower's frequency, taking a breath to calm herself down before she started her contact report-"Revenant, you are clear to land on runway 34," Wells was saying over the ATC frequency. "If you overshoot, turn west, do not turn east.""Revenant copies all, Elemdorf Tower, runway 34." The voice of the pilot was distorted by the radio, giving the callsign a more ominous tone. The fighter made another course correction, and as it banked once again, Holly finally got a clear view of the markings on the stabilizers and main wings. As if on cue, her MFD beeped, and the fighter's contact and IFF code appeared on the small display."We're good, Chris," Holly said, flicking her M-16 back to SAFE before shouldering it. CIRCE flight breathed a collective sigh of relief."False alarm?""Y-yeah. Data-link failure, or lag, or something." Holly started laughing nervously to herself, massaging her temples to ease the tension. "Gawddamnit, I am too tired for this shit right now." She knew she was whining out loud, and didn't care. Nobody in the flight could blame her.
>>29865200Thanks for the run Ghost was fun. I especially like the intro post.
>>29865524"I'm with you on that." Chris kept staring at the strange fighter for a moment longer before she relaxed. "Crew rest is gonna be *awesome*, I'm gonna sleep forever. Or two hours. Whatever!" Her sentiment was definitely shared.-Landing had been easy: no bad weather, no crosswinds, great visibility throughout the whole approach. With the sun already setting, it was honestly perfect flying weather. Holly would have been more than happy to play for just a bit longer in the sky, if she wasn't been so tired, or nervous from her momentary scare a few minutes before. That and Will was waiting for her.He'd driven his cart out to greet her within moments of landing, a pair of techs along for the ride. As soon as they finished securing her strikers to the stand, she jumped into the open seat next to Will."Hey you.""Hey yourself." He handed Holly her boots and cowboy hat, part of their firmly established post-flight ritual."So didja miss me?" She pointed at a pair of binoculars hanging from his neck, and then started poking his chest. "Didja?""Yeah. I was looking for you up there when word came in that your flight was close.""Oh?" She smiled up at him."Got distracted by that crazy fighter though.""Oh. I see how it is, steelwings over ladies, huh? Huh?" Holly put on her best pout, whapping Will upside his head with her hat."Not a fan I take it?""We thought it was hostile," Holly said, glowering at the jet as it rolled down runway 34. "Just a bad combination of me being tired, that... thing being in my sky without warning, and maybe a bug in the MFD data link." "Shit," Will punched the steering wheel of the cart. "We did a full work up on your e-gear today, got no downchecks or anything. I'm sorry Holly, I'll have the boys run more-""I seriously doubt that it was your crew's fault," Holly turned back to face Will. "Data links with AWACS and ground stations fail for any number of reasons."
>>29865446I was wondering the same. She stops in combat.
>>29865572"Still, it musta been quite a scare," Will said. "If it was something on our end, we will find it. Trust me.""I just... thought the base was about to get hit and got worried. Really worried, y'know? I tried to hide it from the others, but I started thinking about you on the ground, and what if that had actually been a Soviet fighter, and what if there were more and... yeah." She laughed nervously. "It's silly, right?""I think you'd have more reason to be concerned if you weren't worried, Holly."She didn't agree with him entirely, but she wasn't exactly going to stop him when he was in the middle of being nice to her."... Thanks, Will.""I guess I shouldn't invite you to see that jet up close with me?" Will asked. "I can always see it later, it's just that the whole crew is kinda goin' nuts over that thing, and-""Nononono! I'll go with you," she said quickly. "Just...make sure it doesn't try to eat me or something. You'll protect me, right?" "You're a witch!" Will protested. "I'm just this guy, you know?""Just this guy, he says," Holly snorted. "You're a wrench-head, so threaten to dismantle it or something!"-Will had things to take care of before he could meet back up with Holly, namely getting a team assigned to run more thorough checks on the MFD data links for the whole wing. This gave her some time to wrap up a patrol report. After enough prodding, Chris convinced Holly it was okay to allow her to take the reports to intel. With that settled, Holly moved outside and caught a good glimpse of the new super jet as a marshal slowly guided the craft into the hangar next door.She decided that she didn't like it any better on the ground. Even at low power, the engines sounded like twin banshees, a distinct whine that couldn't be mistaken for any other steelwing. The lack of canopy was really bothering her--she kept wondering how the pilot could see, assuming there was a pilot.
>>29865610At the same time, she could understand why the techs would like the thing. It was clearly the latest and the greatest from whomever had designed it, and there was a certain... sexiness to the design. If you liked curvy metal monsters that were the stuff of Holly's nightmares.'Definitely assigned to Spellcaster,' Holly thought with some dread."That's going to be a problem," Chris said as she joined the Colonel in watching the show."Did you even deliver those reports?""I've always been a faster runner than you," Chris grinned. "You're like the slowest eagle ever when you're on the ground.""I am not!" Holly snapped. She looked back inside her own hangar, hoping that Will was on the way... and nope, he was apparently involved in some sort of argument with one of his crew chiefs. Dammit."Y'know, he's a lot like you," Chris observed. "He really takes his job seriously.""He probably thinks the crews might have missed something with our data links." Holly frowned. "I told him that's mostly likely not what caused our little issue earlier, but I don't think I convinced him.""Where have I heard a story like that before, I wonder?" Chris started snickering to herself. "You two are made for each other."Whatever!" Holly crossed her arms and concentrated on glaring at the taxiing jet, praying that Will would finish his business soon and whisk her away to some hot food-"Colonel MacLeod!" The voice shouting her last name belonged to Kazanski, but it was a lot angrier than Holly expected. Icelady's hands were balled up into fists as she marched at a brisk pace at Holly. "MacLeeooooood!""Oh shit," Chris mumbled, immediately stepping up between Kazanski and the Colonel."I need to talk to her, *right now*!""She's on crew rest.""Crew rest, is she?" Kazanski brushed past Chris, deftly avoiding a grab at her arm as she did.
>>29865648Chris' familiar was out a moment later, but a look from Holly halted her in place. Lt. Kerner jogged up, trying to herd Chris away from both COs."I tried to stop her," Kerner was saying. Chris looked as through she was ready to flatten the shorter witch."Nice looking steelwing, isn't it MacLeod?" Any warmth in the atmosphere simply vanished as the white-haired witch was suddenly in Holly's face, pushing her against the hangar wall. She looked half way between throwing a right hook, or breaking down in tears on the spot. "Still on crew rest? Can you chat for a minute?""What the hell are you-""Tell me you didn't know," Kazanski pleaded. "Tell me you didn't know I was getting a replacement pilot!""Replacement?" was all that Holly could say."You did, didn't you?" the Navy witch accused. "Because I socked you when you deserved it? Because I'm not Air Force?""I didn't know!""You're the Wing Commander!" Kazanski shouted in disbelief. "How can you *not* know?!""Tabby, come on," Kerner tried to counsel her commander. "Let 'er go or there's gonna be trouble.""Yes, let her go," Chris announced darkly, her doberman familiar out for all to see. "Let her go, or you'll find out just how far I can take witch privilege to cover up what I'm about to do to you both."Holly had been trying to do her best to get over what had happened. Everything she did, no matter what, was ultimately in the interest of the witches in her command. She knew that she'd wronged Kazanski, and had tried to make up for it. Now her XO was seconds away from starting a fight, Kazanski was accusing her of going over her head to pull in a replacement pilot. Holly was tired, hungry, and all she wanted to do was sit down with a nice guy and maybe her best friend, and be able to put aside her duties for just a short time.
>>29865685Something in Holly MacLeod's head just snapped. Her own familiar flashed into existence, body alight with magic as she shoved Kazanski away hard enough that she tumbled to the ground."Commander," Holly began quietly. "I appreciate that you're upset, but I've been running two patrols a day for the last week just like everyone else in the command," her voice raised into a shrill shout, "and I do not need your particular brand of shit right now!" Before Kazanski could respond, Holly hauled the younger woman back on her feet, spun her back towards the wall and slammed her into it. "Get your hands off-" Kazanski started to protest."Oh no, this is not how this is going down, you insubordinate little *child*!" Holly cut her off. "You do not get to pull that act with me!" "Holly, hold on a sec, you don't have to say one damn thing to these people." Chris said, surprised by the sudden outburst."Lt. Colonel McPherson, stand down," Holly growled through her teeth. "I will deal with you in a moment." That was enough to get Chris to send her familiar away and take several steps away from Kerner, standing at attention."MacLeod," Kazanski snarled, struggling to get away from the wall. "If you don't let go of me, I swear-""That's COLONEL MacLeod!" Holly roared. "You think you can pull this shit just because you're in a mixed unit and your precious pilot went MIA? Just ignore the chain of command, pretend that witch privilege lets you act like a little girl just because your *feelings* got hurt?" Pushing herself away from Kazanski, Holly found herself pacing in a circle, trying to calm herself down.
>>29865745"You've lost one man, Kazanski. Whole Air National Guard units have been wiped out since this war began. Other squadrons have suffered such heavy casualties that the survivors are being used as replacements for other empty billets. Over a hundred USAF pilots have died in Alaska, Commander. Has that thought, for even one second, crossed your mind?" Holly had to stop for a moment, struggling to fight the growing lump in her throat, a tremor building in her voice. "Can you tell me what makes Bishop more special than all of those dead men? If you can't tell me, maybe you can explain it to the ones who are still waiting to get shipped home. Explain it to the friends they left behind, while you're at it."The Navy witch opened her mouth to respond, but she couldn't find the words to even start."My God, Commander. I am sorry about Frank Bishop. I'm sorry that you're getting a replacement pilot, but I didn't know. I swear to God I didn't know, I'd have said something! If you told me you didn't want a replacement, I'd have tried to deny the transfer! I'm responsible for the lives of forty-eight USAF witches, and the lives of your squadron on top of that. I have a whole wing's worth of maintenance specialists that answer to me. You think I want to take time out of worrying over the lives of my girls just to find a better way to piss you off? Haven't I done that enough?" Kazanski remained silent, staring at the Colonel, but unable to muster a response. Behind Holly, the jet had finally entered Spellcaster's hangar. The Navy witch stalked past the Colonel wordlessly, off to confront the new arrival. Kerner followed her closely, sparing MacLeod a glance and mouthing 'sorry' before she vanished into the hangar, calling for her commander to slow down. Holly stood her ground for a moment, breathing heavily until she was certain the Navy witches were out of earshot, before walking over to the hangar wall, leaning back, and slamming her forehead into it.
>>29865798"Holly?" Chris asked nervously."Goddamnit," Holly spat."Holly I'm-""I'm not mad at you, Chris." She gave the wall another headbutt, this one a lot softer than the first. "I'm never going to get things right between myself and that squadron, am I?""Permission to speak freely?""You've never had to ask before.""Fuck 'em. Navy pukes, the lot of 'em." Chris placed a hand on Holly's back as the redhead sniffled through a laugh."Everything is so simple with you.""You handled that as best you could, Holly, better than I would have. I think I'd have just started punching." Chris sighed. "I think I'm seeing why you have a problem with mixed units.""Gawd. Finally someone sees what I see." Holly turned back around to look at Chris, wiping tears from the corners of her eyes. "Maaaaaybe I shouldn't have done that, my head hurts.""Of course it does, you idiot." She poked at the growing red spot on Holly's forehead. "Gonna leave a mark for a bit. Want me to find a heal witch?""Not for something dumb," Holly groaned, sitting down and nursing her head. Damn, that really did hurt. "Where's Will? Keepin' a girl waiting like this..." "I'm sure he's on the way." Chris took a seat next to her friend, watching as two more witches ran past them into Spellcaster's hangar. Members of the squadron no doubt. "For what it's worth, I've been in the office as much as you have over the week, and I've seen nothing that indicated they were getting a new pilot or aircraft.""The hell is the point of being a Wing Commander if they're just gonna have shit go over my head like this?" Holly asked."To deal with the aftermath when stuff goes wrong, of course." Chris wrapped an arm around Holly and pulled her in close. "And when that happens, you can always lean on your friendly executive officer to take some of the heat off your back."
>>29865685>>29865745>>29865798Ice had that coming.
Somebody needs to get a bucket.
>>29865868It was a tender and quiet moment between the two friends, one that Holly would have been happy to enjoy for the duration of her crew rest. It just wasn't in her to ignore Lt. Samantha Wells as she ran past the two witches, sobbing loudly as she followed the rest of Spellcaster into their hangar. It was too late to stop her from seeing the man who was replacing her hero.-The witches of VF-3 reminded Holly more of a firing squad than a band of unbelievably furious women. The exception to this was little Wells, who almost fell to her knees in disbelief as the pilot descended from his fighter. The helmet completely obscured his face, fitting the callsign 'Revenant' too perfectly. He stood tall and confident, sizing up the angry girls before him, making Holly almost want to knock that stupid helmet off his head personally. Some might have described it as 'swagger'. Holly thought the man was being a deliberate asshole.'Damnit, Wells shouldn't even be here,' Holly told herself. 'She's just a kid, doesn't deserve any of this! I should have put in her transfer back to the lower 48 myself!'"Hey, look," Kazanski snapped, moving towards the pilot, familiar manifest, fists clenched so tight that the knuckles were somehow paler than the rest of her. Frost trailed every step she took. "I don't know who the fuck you think you are-"And she stopped. Her mouth moved silently, but no words came out. The rest of the witches gathered behind Kazanski all seem to stagger in place.The pilot had reached up to remove his helmet, revealing the smirking face of Frank Bishop. His arms were held open, as though beckoning his fellow squadron-mates to come to him."I AM THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PRESENTS!" he roared triumphantly.
>>29866032OH SHIT FEELTHY WHAT ARE YOU DOING I CAN'T TAKE THESE FEELS MAN
>>29866032"F-Frank?" Kazanski's voice betrayed everything, how much she missed him, how she believed she'd never see her friend again. Her familiar vanished, the frost melting behind her as she took another hesitant step forward. She was already crying, not fighting it whatsoever, unsure if this was all a dream or nightmare.“In the flesh, Ice.” Bishop said, dropping his hands back to his sides. “Well, mostly flesh.” The pilot frowned, poking himself in the ribs. “There's some Tomcat in there too, now.” He looked back up in time to catch Kazanski as the young woman came flying at him, wrapping him in a tight hug and sobbing fiercely into his chest. The rest of Spellcaster joined them a second later, bringing Bishop to the ground despite his best efforts to stay standing.“Y-you big s-s-stupid! Did you know h-how worried we were!?” Kazanski wailed, her voice muffled as she continued to weep into his sternum."You rotten bastard sonofabitch, I hate you!" Lt. Kerner cried out, giving Bishop a few well deserved punches to the shoulder. "How dare you do this to us!""Bud' ty proklyat!" The Russian witch sobbed. "God damn you, Bishop! I-I saw you die and I could do n-nothing for you! You sent me away! Why would you do this?!""Frank!" Wells could do little more than keep crying out the name of her pilot. "Frank! Frank! Frank!"The impossible and unexpected reunion had become very hard for Holly to watch, especially when the whole world was suddenly so damned blurry. Her anger towards Kazanski was gone, blasted away by the miracle she'd witnessed. Somehow, everything had worked itself out. Against her own grim predictions, Georgette Mackintosh had done it. Bishop was alive and buried in his witches, the weight of Holly's lies lifted ever so slightly from her shoulders.She quietly walked away, hoping that they hadn't noticed her even for a second, not wanting to disturb the moment.
>>29866063She needed to call home, more than ever. She wanted to tell Mom and Dad that she was alive, unhurt, and that she loved them very much.-The tears refused to stop, which made the walk away from Spellcaster's hangar difficult. Holly kept trying to look around to check if anyone could see her like this. At best she found blobs that might have been people, and larger blobs that were probably steelwings being guided out to the runways. She ended up walking into one of the people-shaped blobs, and was surprised to discover that it was Will."Whoa! What happened to you?" His eyes widened when he saw the red bump on Holly's forehead. "Are you hurt?!""C-can we see the jet later?" Holly asked. "I th-think we should s-see the jet later.""What's goin on?" Will persisted, worried by how upset Holly was. "Are you okay?""M-more than okay, I j-just don't want to interrupt a f-family, that's all." Shaking her head, she reached forward and pulled Will into a hug, trying not to cry as hard as she was. He straightened up in place, unsure of what to do as she squeezed tightly against him."Are you sure you're okay?""I'm sorry Will," Holly cried. "I can't have lunch with you, I need to call home, I need to call home r-right now!""That's okay, Holly." After another moment of hesitation, his arms wrapped protectively around the witch. "It's all right. You do what you gotta." Will wasn't sure what had happened, but he did know that Holly badly needed the hug. They stood connected together like this until she calmed down."Thank you..." she whispered."'Swhat I'm here for."Pulling away from Will, Holly lingered for a moment longer to look him in the eyes, mustering up the barest hint of a smile before sprinting off towards the phone exchange.-
