It's been busy this morning- which is entirely understandable considering that half of the team's tanks had taken crippling combat damage this weekend, and even Blackjack had a few more dings and scars that needed to be patched and smoothed over- and that's actually what Patrick is supposed to be preparing right now- using a heavy file to remove the flashing and smoothing the edges for armor patches. Unfortunately Patrick isn't here. Figures.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and if you want something done, you gotta do it yourself. In all honesty though, a job like this isn't exactly your least favorite thing in the world- working with your hands had always been something you'd enjoyed doing, and building and maintaining a tank was pretty much the coolest thing you could work on with your hands. Black Jack had taken several good hits over the coarse of the fight against Saunders University Highschool- all of them had been against the Pershing's frontal armor and turret though- it's heaviest armor had weathered the 75mm rounds easily- a round that had bounced off the gun mantlet had barely scratched the armor, while the rounds against the tank's thinner hull armor had deflected off, digging shallow grooves as their trajectory had been deflected upwards. You grab a piece of chaulk and begin marking around the various dents and divots. A particularly large divot was probably caused by a fist-sized piece of debris being blasted at the side of your tank by a near miss- an excellent illustration of your reasoning for keeping your head inside the tank when the shooting starts.>If you want a job done right, you gotta do it yourself.>Go find Patrick.>Get someone else to finish this- we've got to talk with Miho about the B1.>Other.
>If you want a job done right, you gotta do it yourself.Do it ourselves, its our tank, we work on it ourselves. (Well, with our crew)

>>31108537>Get someone else to finish this- we've got to talk with Miho about the B1.Miho x Maho when?
>>31108752given Blackjack's pacing, guessing middle-end of thread, start of next.

I've gotten a paragraph done for The Way of Guderian in the last week. At this rate I should be finished sometime in May.http://pastebin.com/rvqrEXvA.
You get to work after you outline the dings with chalk- an important step especially for smaller, difficult to see damage. You grab a large power grinder and set about grinding off the flashings- bits of deformed metal still attached to the plate after the impact. You grind the edges of the various dings and divots smooth, but leave the insides coarse- you'll eventually need to use epoxy to secure the patches and a smooth surface won't hold as well.It's a nice, involved, semi-repetative task that you get lost in for a while. Sometimes its nice to just be alone with a task for a little while.Which is probably what attracts your crew to you. "Who are you and what have you done with our Commander?!" Roy says with mock suspicion. "Speak quickly, impostor!" You turn to see the twins Rose and Roy standing on the hanger floor, staring at you with exagerated disbelief."What is it?" You sigh at them as you remove your safety glasses. "You're doing work." Rose says. "You never do work. What's going on?">You have been spending a lot of time helping other crews lately.>"Well it, Patrick disappeared. Thanks for volunteering though!">Other.
>>31110195Nice, good portrayal of the conflict between being happy for someone and wanting to be happy yourself. also, now I want a 152mm plushie... or wound that be a body pillow?
>>31110275It was lewder, but I got embarrassed and deleted that part.
>>31110287>You have been spending a lot of time helping other crews lately.>these are really hardworking, motivated, and fun-loving students. We've never met people like this before, the enthusiasm is contagious!
>>31110287>You have been spending a lot of time helping other crews lately.Roy, I could somewhat understand. It's Rose that I'm wondering about. Calibrations?Also, tell them Patrick bailed, ask if they know where he went.
>>31110291Write what you know and all that.>>31110287>"Well, Patrick disappeared. Thanks for volunteering though!"Lazy bastards need to help.
>>31110322>Cut to Anzu sitting on her tank browsing the internet on her phone.
>>31110287>"Well it, Patrick disappeared. Thanks for volunteering though!"
>>31110459I said students, not politicians.
>>31110195And now I am sad, because the fluffy is not as happy as she could be.
>>31110287>You have been spending a lot of time helping other crews lately.*beat*>"Actually Patrick disappeared. So, Thanks for volunteering to lend a hand!"
>>31110652You could have stopped this. It's already too late.Guuuuiiilllt~ GUUUUIIIILLLLT~
>>31110761I was working that day. No votes from me.More importantly, write more.
>>31110652we(russell and Miho)'ll assuage her fears and discomfort, very soon.
>>31110761You ever going to do SaS again?
>>31110287>You have been spending a lot of time helping other crews lately.
>>31110786I actually have to go and take some more stuff from my old house to my new house right now, so later maybe.>>31110815It's on my to do list. Easter break is coming up, so I might work on it some then.
\dum de do
>>31111377your picture is missing something: one gaijin hugging Miho and Yukari from behind.
>>31111441Oh, he's there, he's just short so you can't see him behind Miho.
>>31111377Hey look. Saori doesn't have a massive forehead
>>31111492we never did specify Russel's height and Miho is tall for her age... Ok, I'll buy that, but what's he wearing?
You lean back and look at your two turretmates. "I know..." You apologize. "Been spending time helping other teams instead of you guys..." You look at them and smile. You gesture out over the various crews. "Listen... For the most part these girls don't know what they're doing yet- they don't know what they've gotten themselves into." You shrug before leaning back onto the tank. "You guys know what to do- and for the post part I trust you guys."Roy looks from you to Rose. Rose rolls her eyes."What?" You say. "What?!" A heartfelt speech to apologize for your absense and they're rolling they're eyes! "You talk too much, Commander." Rose states. "Also, Miho was looking for you- evidently the last place she was expecting to find you was your tank." She smirks."I know, right?" Roy says in mock amazement. "A Commander working on his own tank!"You groan. "Well, thanks for volunteering to take over then, guys." You grin at them before tossing Roy the safety glasses. "Try not to scratch the paint!">Go find Miho.>Go find Patrick.>Speak to Anzu about Hippo Team.>Other.
>>31111616>Go find Miho.
>>31111616>Go find Miho.let's get the family angst dealt with, or at least the sister half of the issue.
>>31111616>Go find Miho.The Girlfriend wants us.We obey.
>>31111760two words that are key to a successful relationship: Yes, Dear.
>>31111830In this relationship I suspect the two magic words are instead "Panzer Vor"
>>31111855yeah, that makes more sense.
>>31111377The heights seem pretty off there.
>>31111616GO FIND MIHO
>>31111616>>Go find Miho.Panzer vore!
East coast reporting in. Carry on.
Miho looks down at your from the open commander hatch of the Panzer IV. "Oh, there you are!" She chirps with a smile. "Where'd you go?""Was working on Black Jack." You say, beginning the climb up the side of the German medium tank."Really?" Miho says with a slightly confused look. You blink back at her- alright you need to spend more time with your tank."So what's up?" You ask before taking a seat on the top of the turret next to the hatch."Down here!" She says before ducking into the turret- you turn and crawl in through the loader's hatch."So. We've got a Bergepanther." She says with a sigh. "She'll be bringing it this afternoon- probably late since they'll need to load it and transport it. Luckily they're not that far away..." She speaks quickly, practically throwing the words away from her.>"Slow down Miho.">"Who's bringing what now?">"That'll get the b2 out easily!">Other.
>>31112527>>"Slow down Miho.">>"Who's bringing what now?"Start from the top, Miho.
>>31112527>"Who's bringing what now?" *sees look on face and remembers last time Miho got worked up* "it's your sister isn't it?"then we >>31112542 while she answers.
>>31112527>>"Slow down Miho.">>"Who's bringing what now?"also this>>31112542
>>31112527>Hug her, then "Take a breath Miho, now is Maho bringing to over or someone else?"
>>31112527>"Who's bringing what now?"
"Miho." You say, cleaning over the gun. "Miho! Calm down." You give her a stern look. "Who is bringing what this afternoon. Start from the beginning." You reach out and brush her shoulder, attempting to calm her down. It seems to help."I-I called Miho..." She starts, completely unsure of herself. "I said that we had found a tank, but that we lacked the equipment to get it out and that we needed a bigger recovery vehical and then I asked her if we could use the Bergepanther because it was the only thing that had the lift capacity..."You blink under the onslaught of her gigantic, ever-accelerating run-on sentence. You stop her before she passes out from lack of any kind of inhalation. "So, we have a recovery vehical?" You ask, attempting to get her to slow down. "That's great!" You say with a smile. "We can get the B2 out of the pond...""Um, Russells?" Miho says, her look clearly not matching your enthusiasm for the news. "We need to talk..." She looks down and fidgets. "About my sister.">"It's your sister. She's helping us. What's wrong with that?">"It's just your sister... I don't think she hates me.">"What's wrong?">Other.
>>31113557>>31113557>"What's wrong? She was very professional before... Is she going to take issue with, well, US? "Also, you wrote Miho instead of Maho.
>>31113557[X] "It's just your sister... I don't think she hates me."She doesn't, right?>Inb4 Maho walks in on Miho and Russels making out
>>31113557>>"It's just your sister... I don't think she hates me.">>"What's wrong?"No, she doesn't hate him, she's just rather protective of Miho. Perhaps too protective.
>>31113598and processes to insert herself into Miho's place to protect her from the 'oversexed American'.>>31113606we're going to have to through The Family Training before Maho will permit us to be together, she wants only the best for Miho. ONLY THE BEST!
Hi guys, can I play?
Rolled 2>>31112527>>"Slow down Miho.">>"Who's bringing what now?"add hugs if necessary
>>31113557>"What's wrong?"Also apply secret hugging-inside-tank technique
>>31113557>>"It's just your sister... I don't think she hates me.">>"What's wrong?"silly me forgetting to update before replying.
>>31113557>cleaning over the gun.>"I-I called Miho...">vehicalBJ You are drunk.
>>31113557>What's wrong?And why on earth does everyone here act as if Maho is one massive ball-busting bitch? Especially since she's the only one in the anime showing Miho somethibg else than scorn or mockery. Yeah, she's cold and distant most of the time, but that's their mother's fault.
>>31113557>"What's wrong? She was very professional before... Is she going to take issue with, well, US? "
>>31113557First time attempting the summoning, let's see if this works.It has been one hour.Is blackjack dead?
>>31114092no, he's juts typing the next post.
"It's just your sister..." You start. "Every time I've met her she's seemed fairly... civil." You shrug. "I don't think she hates me- even after.. uh..." You look at Miho and she blushes as she's reminded of the scene at the restaurant on Friday. "She doesn't hate me, right?"Miho looks down. "I don't know..." She looks up at you and looks deeply, deeply uncomfortable. "I don't know what she thinks. She's... difficult to read, sometimes." "Well, she already knows about me and she's always seemed sort of... okay with me but..." Dammit, you're seeing where this is going and you're not a huge fan of it- You're an aggressive personality and you don't like running from problems like this.B-but I was wondering if..." She fidgets more, looking down. "I can handle the B2 with Maho- did you want to maybe take the rest of the team out on a training match this afternoon?">"You want me to hide from your sister?">"I can do that, at least until you can talk with her.">Other.
>>31114173>>Other.Send Miho out to train the team, you'll handle her sister
>>31114173>"You want me to hide from your sister? You think she'll have a problem about us dating? because if so, we're not hiding. I'm not ashamed of being your boyfriend, and you shouldn't be ashamed of being my girlfriend. If Maho doesn't like it, then tough."
>>31114173>"I can do that, at least until you can talk with her.">>31114182Miho is the team captain. It's her job to deal with these things.
>>31114196but this is family. Miho has nobody to stand with her, but us.
>>31114173>"I can do that, at least until you can talk with her."
>>31114192what anon said.
>>31114173>"I can do that, at least until you can talk with her."This.
"You want me to hide." You say, pausing for a moment. "You want me to hide from your sister?" You drop your forehead down onto the gun's breech for a moment for pulling yourself back up. "No. I can't do that- I'm not gonna hide like some shameful family secret. I'm not some Boo Radley you can keep down in the basement." You sigh- you know Miho is afraid of her family, but she needs to grow a spine in this regard sooner or later."Who's Boo Rad-" Miho starts to ask- Yeah, Japan schoolgirls probably aren't big on references to mid-century American literature."That ain't the point," you say as you lean foreward, putting your most aggressive foot forward. "The point is that you think that by just avoiding anything that could cause any sort of problems with your family then maybe they'll all just go away. Newsflash: You already told them, they already know and you only serve to prove your mother right if you keep trying to hide me away!""Russells that's not what-" She starts again, but you're on a roll."Miho, I know your mom's scary. I knows there's some deep-seated family issues there and I know you want to avoid any sort of conflict but-""Russells!" She says, finally interrupting you back. "Please! I'm not trying to hide you." She looks like she's desperately trying to hold her composure- her Japanese stiff-upper lip and dedication to modesty wins out. "I just need to talk with Maho. I just... I want her to like you but I need to make sure you're both ready."You swallow and bite your lip- it makes sense. "Alright, fine." You say finally. "Just... I don't want you to live your entire life completely dependant on what you think your family thinks of you."
