"So, how's the jaw?" Erika bristles as she turns to see Rose, leaning against the rear of Black Jack. Her hand subconciously moves to rub her jaw as she stares daggers at your gunner. It takes everything you have not to smile at the thought of Maho's second-in-command getting knocked senseless. You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and you realise that you only really planned how to get back early enough to encounter Maho- now that you're here you've got absolutely nothing planned. You remain silent until Miho looks at you- her tone is friendly as usual, but you see a flash of anger her her eyes. "You're back early, Russells."It's not a question, more a statement of fact and, underneith that, of disappointment. You pause for a second, looking from Miho to Maho and back again. "Nearly busted a track link- just barely got it back here on it's own power." You glance down at the mangled track link. "We were actually a few minutes from heading back out." Not exactly a lie- just not entirely the truth.And Miho knows, but isn't willing to call you on it in front of her sister. Instead she nods. "I see.">"So, what's up with the Char?">Greet Maho. Let's try to get a measure on her.>"We'll finish up here and head back out.">Other.
>>31249116>"So, what's up with the Char?"
>>31249116>"We'll finish up here and head back out.">"So, what's up with the Char?"
>>31249116>Greet Maho. Let's try to get a measure on her.Remember what we're here for, gentlemen.
>>31249284>>Greet Maho. Let's try to get a measure on her.>>31249284has a point.
>"So, what's up with the Char?"
>>31249379yes, seconding. We will apologize to Miho later over dinner: "Miho, honey, I am very sorry for ignoring you earlier. I just don't like it when someone important to me goes into a proverbial lion's den. In America, if a friend of yours is in trouble, you help them out, even if they say otherwise. In fact, its when they say, 'I don't need help' that you get involved. I love you that much Miho, you're the world to me." *que loving embrace*>getting way to invested in this, am I?.
>Greet Maho. Let's try to get a measure on her.Oh dear hopefully Miho doesn't hold this against Russels too much.
>>31249116>"So, what's up with the Char?">"We'll finish up here and head back out."We have angered the Miho.We are doomed.
>>31249717not if we remember the top 2 rules for relationships:1. Yes, dear.2. Bribe, bribe, bribe.
>>31249116>"So, what's up with the Char?">Greet Maho. Let's try to get a measure on her.>"We'll finish up here and head back out."
You turn your attention from Miho to her sister. "Maho. Good to see you again." You offer a hand to shake and she accepts. Years ago your Grandfather had taught you how to properly shake hands- firm grip, squeeze but don't crush, look them in the eye but don't stare."Commander." She greets back, accepting your handshake with a polite nod. You want to try to figure her out, but she doesn't give you much to go on, besides polite, single-word sentences. This might take a bit more doing than you thought.You smile sincerely as you withdraw your hand. "Thanks for your help with the B2. It means a lot that you're willing to take the time to help us." "It's is our responsiblity to help other teams whenever possible." Maho says. "The qualities of senshado should be followed before and after the match." Stone cold professional- you're completely unsure how this girl could be related to the shy, occasionally clumsy Miho.>"So, how was your fight against Chi-Ha-Tan?">"Your second doesn't seem impressed with Black Jack- what do you think?">We weren't prepared for tsun of this magnatude.>Other.
>>31250579>We weren't prepared for tsun of this magnatude.Its ok, we can recover.>"Your second doesn't seem impressed with Black Jack- what do you think?"reposit with her second not exactly living up to what she just said.cool, calm, and collected people. the better we handle this, the less we get girlfriend disappointment. *the mental image of Miho looking disappointed is physically painful! :(*
>>31250579>"So, how was your fight against Chi-Ha-Tan?"

>>31250579>"So, how was your fight against Chi-Ha-Tan?">"Your second doesn't seem impressed with Black Jack- what do you think?"
>>31250717what he said, more or less.
>>31251068Nah, I just don't like any of the other options better.
>>31251335ok, just checking... I've been in enough of these situations that this has me feeling nervous and chatty, is it that obvious? either way, the sooner we get to the issue of dating the second daughter of the Nishizumi family, the sooner I can stop rambling.
"So how was your first match?" You think for a second. "You were placed against Chi-Ha-Tan Academy?" She's a professional, you know that much- so you decide to appeal to her professional achievements."Correct." She says. "It went well." She spares a glance at Erika, who beams arrogently. "They fought well, but in the end they were no match for our team." You aren't in the least bit surprised- Chi-Ha-Tan had styled themselves around Chinese tanks- their line-up largely consists of early-war Japanese, American and Russian tanks. "Your match against Saunders went well- even with a Nishizumi leading the team I did not expect much."It's a polite, friendly way of saying your team got lucky. This strikes a nerve with Miho, who finally speaks up. "It's the Nishizumi way not to underestimate your opponent." She says. "Our team fought well."Miho glances at her sister, eyes narrowing. "Your team fought like amateurs." She states coldly. "If Kay were as serious about winning as she is about her jean shorts and hair she would've taken your team without breaking a sweat.">Let Miho handle this.>"Nothing that comes up against Black Jack is going to walk away victorious!">"Why do you say that? What did we do wrong?">Other.
>>31251787>>Let Miho handle this.
>>31251787>Let Miho handle this.She's the brains, we're...good at lifting heavy things.
>>31251787>>Other.When in Rome
>>31251787>Let Miho handle this.
>>31251815yeah, we're in enough hot water as is. But If Maho or Erika keep hitting her, we hit back, unexpectedly: we take the blame ourselves. 'it was my choice to attempt pursue of Saunder's remaining forces rather than link up. My captain has informed me of my error and disciplined me accordingly. in the future we will fight as a proper unit. 'also, You put Miho instead of Maho again. BJ. Might want to take another swig of caffeine before you write again.>>31251908meaning...
>>31251966>meaning...When someone invites you into their house, you don't talk shit.
>>31252269so you think we should hit back, probably by referencing the high velocity, 90mm, Tiger killer a few feet from her? I think we should save aggressive responses for when Miho gets attacked personally... which given Maho's tack will be next post.
You feel yourself balling your fists as your blood heats up. You hold your tongue, though- you're in trouble for being here as it is- Miho doesn't need you picking a fight with her sister. Besides, that's her job. "Mother's words." Miho says quietly, the same steel in her eyes as her sister. "From your mouth." That hit Maho hard- nobody knows how to hurt like family. "We're going to prove you wrong though." She takes a few steps back to stand next to you.Maho glares at the two of you, but you see a twinge of pain under it. Erika is the who delivers the message though- she laughs. Harshly, before stopping to wipe her eye. "Oh. You were serious?" She pauses. "She's serious!">"We'll see if your tank has as much of a glass jaw as you do, Blondie.">"Guess I'll see you at the finals then. Whether you see me before I take you out is another matter.">Other.
>>31252816>"We'll see if your tank has as much of a glass jaw as you do, Blondie."Cruisin for a bruisin
>>31252816>"We'll see if your tank has as much of a glass jaw as you do, Blondie. see, back in the states, a guest abides by two rules: never insult your host, and NEVER insult your host's girlfriend. let's see you put your money where your mouth is: your over-engineered, under-powered, piece of scrap against BlackJack. "Girlfriend has been insulted: DUEL MODE ENGAGED! also, 'sorry Miho, I tried, but negotiations have broken down. '
>>31252816>"We'll see if your tank has as much of a glass jaw as you do, Blondie."
>>31252896Hell yeah, let's do this!
>>31252816>"We'll see if your tank has as much of a glass jaw as you do, Blondie."Except instead of 'Blondie', use 'fraulein'.also >>31252896Ol' Jack is just as underpowered, engine-wise, at least.
>>31252943>Ol' Jack is just as underpowered, engine-wise, at least.Funnily enough the Pershing has a similar P/W to the KT but manages a higher top speed
>>31252975That's because of FREEDOM.
>>31252943see >>31252975>>31252988oh, you did. anyway, that's why we fight. we fight for the freedom to live your own live, beholden by no one, and for the honor of our GF! FOR MIHO!also, we can still kill her long before she can kill us. I do like adding the mocking 'fraulein'. Adding this to my post of>>31252896!

You look Maho dead in the eye before nodding at Erika. "Blondie's got a big mouth and a glass jaw." You put on your best cruel smile and don't break eye contact. "Roy?"Roy responds from behind you. "Yeah?""Go get a 90mm HVAP round and write 'Erika' on it." You blink slowly, like an annoyed cat."Oh that's adorable." Erika says cruelly. "A round with my name on it?" She laughs again."Your schoolboy bravado doesn't impress me, Commander." Maho says, glancing back to silence Erika. "We'll see on the field just how you measure up. You'll learn just how weak you really are." She waits a beat. "Which assumes you even get there.""Why wait?" Miho says suddenly stepping forward aggressively. "You think we're weak? Prove it."You look at her. "Miho..." You manage, but she's on a roll."Russells and Black Jack against Erika and Blue Frederich." Her voice is iron at this point, Your place, your time.>FEED ME TIGERS.>"Uh, Miho? Do I get a choice in this?">Other.
>>31253757>>FEED ME TIGERS.SHOTS FIRED

>>31253757>>FEED ME TIGERS.BARRELS SHALL BE SHAKEN, ARMOR SHALL BE SPLINTERED! A PANZER DAY, A RED DAY, 'ERE THE SUN RISES! DEATH!
>>31253820HELL YEAH! NEXT TIME! DEATH! btw, where did you get the quote you modeled that on, its familiar but I can't place it.
>>31253883ah, yes, thanks. also, I just realized something... if we win... We get one of Kuromoromine's tanks! Panther, Jagdpanzer IV, Elefant, Tiger, JadgTiger, Tiger II, Maus... one of these mighty machines rests within our fingertips, gentlemen.
>>31253956Wat? We're not fighting for pinkslips.
>>31253956What? No. That's ridiculous.
>>31253976Why do you say that? If we beat Erika, she'll cave to the shame, and Maho will see our strength and admit her mistake. That combines to us getting a tank as rightful conquerors.
>>31254010a similar out-of-tournament challenge got us an Excelsior, so it stands to reason that we can do it again here. Why does nobody seem to see that we have a way to get better tanks without spending money?
>>31254080That was as the result of a specific deal cut by Anzu with a person who was favourably inclined to help us out.This is a hate-fuelled grudge match against people who aren't the slightest bit inclined to do anything remotely similar.
>>31253757>FEED ME TIGERS.CAME AT ME SIS!
>>31254112It's because your statement was so patently absurd it didn't warrant the distinction of an actual reply.
>>31253757>FEED ME TIGERS.I vill crush you like bug
>>31254111we can still mention it before the duel. something of "I win, I get one of your tanks, You win, I'll lever speak to Miho again." Erika'll most likely accept, and then we beat her, que tank.>>31254124ok, looking back I see the unneeded hyperbole in my statement. I still maintain that we can get a Panther out of this. What's the worse thing that can say if we win (which we will, the conclusion is not in doubt)? No. So we have nothing to lose by trying.
>>31254210It would look completely and utterly mercenary to everyone here and everyone who hears about it - this is a match over pride. Throwing material conditions into it cheapens the whole thing and makes us look like scum - thus defeating the whole point Miho was trying to prove in the first place with this.
>>312543211. I thought we were brought here for just that: a foreign mercenary crew to train the locals.2. Cheapening the moral victory and removing the point, that I understand and accept. We can find Panthers elsewhere. I concede to you anon, no hard feelings?
>>31254351Moral Victory would be if you hadn't challenged them and just smiled like it's all good.
>>31254363That's not a victory. Just Moral.It's not a victory unless you beat the shit out of them. Morally.
>>31254369which we will... in about two days, IRL.
>>31254369I'd still call it a Victory. They look like dicks, you look like a cool cat
>>31254378No, we'd look like a pussy who talks tough and backs down come showtime.
>>31254389I was talking about before the confrontation
...Is it bad that I want Erika and Rose to go at it again?
>>31254410Should have just had a boxing match
>>31254414 Next to a conveniently-placed mud puddle?
>>31254402as a wise old man once told me... it's not bragging if you're that damm good.>>31254410nope.>>31254414not quite>>31254419there we go.
>>31254419Oh yeah, and Cameras... for posterity
>>31254378I would like to uphold Russell's and Black Jack's reputation for asskicking.Seems like it would be best demonstrated in this tank duel method. Rather simple all in all.Which means anything else (hustling for tanks owned by the opponent, for one) would have to be set in the backburner. That's just unnecessary background noise at this point.
>>31254442You forget they insulted our girlfriend. Personally, I can take insults. Insulting my GF, is a Red line of no return. This is for the honor of Miho AND Blackjack.
Damnit Blackjack, Erika is a cutie, why must you malign her so?
>>31254468Insult our tank? Eh.Insult or crew? Eehh.. They can take care of themselves.Insult our girlfriend? Oh hell naw.
>>31254502Because she's a cunt.
>>31254514What ever happened to that writefag that did her backstory?I want to say it's Anchovy writer, but I can't remember
>>31254514Lies and slander, Blackjack just bullies her with this character assassination.
>>31254540I wish I knew :(
>>31254502You're not alone. she is cute, and I can sympathize with her feelings about Miho due to a snippit done way back by Anchovie writer... but I can't stand her attitude or conduct to people outside her school.
>>31254554I'm just sad that BJ has apparently decided to turn the bitchiness up to eleven compared to the canon character.
>>31254566During the Saunders fair, yes. Here, its more canon arrogance.
Maho laughs suddenly. "So, you want a duel?" She laughs again, looking at Erika, who steps forward eagerly. "A foolish proposition, Miho." She turns to Erika. "Frederich is your tank, Erika.""My crew could use the target practice." Erika says, snorting as she looks at Black Jack. "We'll fight, if her boyfriend isn't afraid." She barely supresses more laughter as she looks at you.Your blood boils and drums sound in your ears. "Black Jack was created for a purpose." You say after a moment. "It was designed and built and deployed to kill Tigers." You look at Miho and give her a single nod. She nods back and you look Erika in the eye. "We'll do it. Any time, any place." You really hope you're not going to regret this. BUt as you glance at Black Jack you know you won't.
>>31254599NEXT TIME! SATISFACTION SHALL BE HAD!
NEXT TIME ON GIRLS UND PANZER QUEST.>We are not yet prepared.>Dammit Patrick.>We still have some partying to plan.

Previously: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/31169228/#p31177761“Okay now what”Elliot grabs your hand and inspects itYou cock an eyebrow, not out of surprise but curiosity“You've got a lot of calluses” the comment is something you've heard a lot “you can tell a lot by someone's hands, yours are really big”You jump on the oppurtunity “you know what they say. Big hands” you pause for comedic effect “big gloves”She takes off her glove and flashes her own handsJohn says exactly what you're thinking “what the fuck do you do”She does twirls and gives Kate a wink “go get the replacement, I've got work to do”You order John with you, it's time to do things “lets go home slice”The two of you make your way out of the Hangar at an amble, not really caring how long it takes, just being comfortable“She opened up”“Who?” you ask for clarifiaction “Elliot?”“Yeah, she's ordering us around now”You yawn “I think it's because she knows what she's doing, and we're standing around like assholes”John yawns as well “shit, now you've got me doing it”“I like it when they fight back” you joke over her assertiveness>[1/?]
>>31254699John throws you a sly grin before reaching the store room's double doorYou appraise the armor plates of different sizes. It actually looks like you could build an entire tank with the parts in here, well an entire tank minus the electronics and engine. It's all hull bits. A lift sits in the cornerYou go to inspect what looks like the Frontal Plate of a T-34, and it's covered in somekind of paper and lacquer“Hey John, I think I found it” you call over to him “covered in some weird shit, but we'll let Elliot and Kate deal with it. They can suck it”“No compassion”“Yeah” you grunt rolling the lift over and hooking the plate on “not when I have to do something that isn't my job”John gives you a hand in hauling it back. It really is hot out now>[2/?]
>>31254707“Okay” you stride over to the two girls leaning on the bare Carbon hull “I got you thing, it's covered with some weird shit” you indicate to the green stuff on the plate“We just pull it off” Elliot says “haven't you seen this stuff before?”“Nope” ours come straight from the forge “usually up to us to paint it though”“Okay well give us a hand here” she starts pulling on the paper, taking each sheet off one at a time. There's a couple hundred sheets from what you can seeYou've taken off half the paper when Caitlin still on the T32 asks “what's your tank's name?”“Doesn't have a name” you respond frankly while scrabbling to get a particularly tenacious piece off“Why not?” it's a young boy this time“Doesn't really matter” you shrug“Can we name your tank?”You turn to them “I'll consider it, if it's not shit”>[3/?]
>>31254722“Did you watch any Senshado matches?” you hear Kate say“Yeap” you help hoist the plate into placeShe waits for you to say something, but you really don't want to“What did you think?”“It was different” is all you can manage while being truthful“Different how?” she pushes“I dunno why it's different now, but back in the day, we used to be like cowboys” you brag “straight up pistols at dawn, gunfighters”“Cold blooded” John adds further emphasising your point“No doubt”“That's so cool” it's that boy that came with Caitlin speaking with enthusiasm“It was pretty gangsta” you say leaning on the newly replaced frontal plate“Hey, get off there” Elliot says ordering you away so she can start weldingYou move over to the other side of the tank and sit on the floor, Kate, the boy, and John follow suite. It's not long before you hear the incessant buzzing of the ARC welder>[4/?]
>>31254599Come on Russels, where's your confidence all of a sudden? Mano-e-mano is YOUR specialty, not Erika's.
>>31254740“How'd those matches go” Kate asks restarting the conversation from earlierYou stretch out before replying “for us, it came down to seeing our opponent before they saw us”“The first shot is usually the last” John adds. You nod in agreement“We didn't have all this running and gunning you see Jap tankery, you'd stalk each other for hours, waiting for the other to slip up” you slam your fist into your palm “then you hit them with everything”“Don't you like the Japanese way?” Kate asksYou shake your head “I like winning”“Ooohhhhhhh, you gonna take that” John covers his mouth in mock shockKate shrugs “I like it, though what I want to know is how long you've practiced”You answer with a smile “couple years, though we took a break for two, and here we are now”“Did you have an Instructor?” the boy asks “we need one”“We had one” you let them in on your background “but most of the manuevers I learned from watching and reading, what I really learned from him was how to get inside someone's head”“So he didn't teach you the manuevers” Kate asks “that's not very instructional, and how did you even afford one, you must have been fifteen”“Okay” you say “let me rephrase that, he was more like a partner”“In crime”You surpress a laugh at John's terrible joke>[5/?]
>>31254776“We had a tank, and he had some skills. And we made a bit of money”“Oh cool” the boy says “so you had like a sponsor?”You shoot John a sideways glance to keep his mouth shut “Sure” you keep a straight face as you say it for believabilityThe boy seems to go along with it, but Kate's little smirk probably means she isn't buying it. You wouldn't either“What tanks have you fought?” the boy says obliviousYou start thinking. That's a tough one considering you've fought a lot, it blurs together, but the ones that stand out are pretty interesting “lets see, a Tiger two”“Really?” the boy says exictedly “did you win?”“Hell yeah we did” you respond with equal excitement even though it's one of the reasons you're here today “we put them in the ground, no contest”“One of those Panthers with the long eighty-eight” you say feigning ignorance, and then add “same team as well”“A Jagdpanther?”“Yeah, that one” you snap your fingers “lets see what else... oh, one of those Shermans with the long gun”“A Firefly?” You shrug “probably, there isn't much that can make it through the turret so the bigger gun doesn't matter">[6/?]
>>31254804“What else John” you ask trying to remember moreHe thinks for a moment “a bunch of Hellcats once”You remember this one vividly now “yeah, that was the team that was stalking us, that shit was crazy”“What like following you around?” Kate asks confused“Yeah” you realise how it sounds “but like in the match, their guns weren't strong enough to pen from a lot of angles, so they were trying to find the perfect shot, and because they were so fast we had to keep moving or they'd take us”“Definitely one of the better teams” John saysYou nod in agreement before continuing “Onw of those Russian Assault guns, with the big ass bore”“An I-eeS-U?”“That's the one, managed to take it out before it hit us”“Yeah, it would have punched through your front, a one-fifty-two is huge” the boy saysYou go into more detail because it's not that straight forward “we were hull down, so it wouldn't have penetrated, I mean she's got six-hundred mills of armor on the turret front” you grin “so it's not like it would have penetrated, the real danger is if it had hit and damaged the turret ring”He nods “yeah, that makes sense”>[7/?]
>>31254850You lean back some to see if Elliots done. She isn't“You know before you joined, I've never heard of your fights” Kate asks “your tank is pretty rare, I'm surprised”“Most of our matches were pretty underground” you realise how dumb it soundsLuckily John clarifies “our matches weren't really publicised, and they were never in this State”“Oh” kate responds “that explains... somethings”“Like what?”“I don't think there's a school or club around here that fields a Kay-Tee”“Course not” you blab “it was Kuromime's”“Kuromoromine's” John corrects you “and the Panther thing was theirs as well”“Whoa” the boy says with a look of disbelief. Seems that team is hot shit“They shouldn't have used such a funny name for their school, shit's redonk”“No way” Kate saysYou smile “you can believe what ever you want”She's curious now, she definitely wants to know more“Anyway, yeah we've got a couple matches under our belt”“You know what would be cool” the boy says looking at you “if you came and coached us">[8/?]
>>31254850You can't help but smile. It's kind of like the smile you get when a girl takes her top off infront of you, literally uncontrollable"Well then you should be happy to know I am”“How much are you getting payed” John asks“Six-hundred per session” you tell him “not too shabby for a day's work”He puts on a not-bad face“Ashley isn't going to be happy about this” Kate sighs“That's too bad, she's going to have to deal with it">[8/8]

>>31254850>six-hundred mills of armor on the turret front11.5 inches does not 600mm make.Not that it matters, BR-540 isn't all that great at penetration.

>>31255279It's just something the MC does. As in if it's a close enough, it's good enough.Which is why he also doesn't bother with proper identification of tanks, or asking people their names.>>31255300Nah you're probably right. The way I play the dialogue is that one person speaks, then another person responds, and they have a back and forth for some amount of time, during which I won't bother writing about how they say it. And then someone else will come in where I'll say they've said something.I'll look into it though.
