Sorry for the late start, got a bit caught up trolling the Warframe forums. Place is a joke, haha. Trying to foster some more butthurt by just blocking mods now, they seem to not approve of that. Anyway. Archives here:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Strike%20witches%201989pastebin primer here:http://pastebin.com/zFxWNup1++“So what's in the fridge?” You ask, letting your pack thump to the table as Mav heads for the refrigerator used for leftovers and snacks. She opens it up and hesitates for a second, looking around. “Uh--- Bigass pot of something, couple drinks, looks like some chicken, and... ooh! Dessert!” “Yeah, how about you leave that for last. Drink me.” You say, holding up a hand on your second sentence. Mav, responding by reflex, slings a can of coke at you- fast enough to do damage if it hit a soft spot. Fortunately, you're able to catch it, the sting of it's impact causing you to shake out your hand as you set it down. “So what's in the pot?” You ask, as she pulls it out and opens it up. “Dirty rice? Lotta stuff in it though, looks like it's a meal on it's own.” She answers. “Sounds good. Get a spoon, I'll get the plates.” you say, standing up and heading to the cupboard. “But get it all out here. I'm hungry.”She nods, turning around as you set the plates on the table and take a look into the pot- she's absolutely right, the rice looks like it's practically a meal on it's own. The chicken, meanwhile, is fried- and while you're no great fan of cold fried chicken, right now you're more than willing to make an exception. “Georgette didn't cook this.” Mav says, halfway through her second piece of chicken- bitch took the three drumsticks you saw, though, on the other hand, she did leave all the breasts for you, so you won't complain too much. 1/2
You shake your head, agreeing- there's too much spice in it, and you can't really see Georgette making fried chicken and dirty rice anyway. “My money's on Brigitte.” You say. Mav nods. “Yeah, she's been talkin' bout doing us up proper. Her words, man, don't look at me like that. It is pretty good though.”“Georgette's cooking is still better.” You say, though you're saying it just to be contradictory. Mav responds in kind, holding up a wooden spoon like a sword, her other hand holding the remnants of her second drumstick in her mouth. “Fite me bitch.” She demands, brandishing the spoon. You have to work not to choke on your food. “Oh, so there's Frank!” Alyssa interrupts the moment, her prosthetic leg making a light tink noise as she enters the kitchen. “With Patty? How scandalous.”“Oh, completely.” Clarissa says, not far behind her sister. “We're all shocked. We never thought you two would go for each other.”“You know, since you're so busy elsewhere.”Mav just shakes her head, declining to comment, and tilts her head towards you. “Francis, you wanna field this one?” “My name's not Francis.” You protest. “But since you've got your mouth full like usual...” “We just sat down, Sherks. Can this wait?”  “You promise not to make us laugh, and We'll listen.”
>>33430566>[X] “You promise not to make us laugh, and We'll listen.”Anything to distract us from the heresy that is cold chicken.
>>33430566> “You promise not to make us laugh, and We'll listen.”and if Merc MIA we'll know who to be questioned
>>33430566> "You promise not to make us laugh, and we'll listen."The culinary crime of cold fried chicken is partially forgiven due to delicious dirty rice and the one true soda.
>cold chicken>heresyAnon, I'm afraid you need disciplined.>>33430566>[x]"You promise not to make us laugh, and we'll listen."
>>33430566>[x] “You promise not to make us laugh, and We'll listen.”
>>33430566> “You promise not to make us laugh, and We'll listen.”
>>33430566>[x] “You promise not to make us laugh, and We'll listen.”Cold chicken isn't that bad, when you're staving.>she did leave all the breasts for youTo bad Fronk's a tail man. Best night of the week unless there's storms and power-outages!
>>33430632I shall get the lighter and spray can....
>>33430711That reminds me, the other part of the news. Storms rolling through, may get a power outage. Don't think so, they're pretty scattered, but never know.
>>33430752all I have is centruylink acting like assholes
>>33430711Cold chicken is heresy. I thought microwaves were invented already?
>>33430796Cold chicken is delicious.
>>33430566"You know where I can get ahold of a cargo plane? For reasons."
>>33430566> “You promise not to make us laugh, and We'll listen.”>>33430823Agreed. Good chicken is good chicken hot or cold.
>>33430566 “You promise not to make us laugh, and We'll listen.”If it's done right, cold chicken can be alright too.
[x] “You promise not to make us laugh, and We'll listen.”“You promise not to make us laugh, and We'll listen. Otherwise we're gonna run you both out of here.” You say, emphasizing your warning with a stolen drumstick held menacingly at them. “Oh fine, be all businesslike.” Alyssa complains. “Tabby wanted to see you.” “About work.” Clarissa adds. “Well, kind of. It's about work and the things Samantha's been doing.”“Oh, and Brigitte said she needed to talk with you too.” “Brigitte?” You ask, trying to get mav to say something about the drumstick. For her part, she just grabs another piece of chicken from the plate. Alyssa nods. “Yeah, Brigitte. Something about Sammy? I don't know, she wouldn't say.”“Could be worse.” You admit. “Hey, any idea where we could scare up a squadron hack?”Clarissa nods. “Yeah, actually. There's a little boneyard at Wattisham, up north. Looked like there was a couple of birds that'd work up there, but you'd need to check for yourself and most of them would need work. There's supposedly a big boneyard out near Bristol if you want to go check that out.”“That might actually be fun.” Alyssa says, after a second. “Hey, let us know when you go.”You nod. “I'll try to. So, it was just Ice and Brigitte?” 1/2
Clarissa shrugs. “And Sammy, but she always wants to see you. You see the shop she has? God, I'm just scared of what will happen if someone gives her a team to work with.”Alyssa looks at her sister. “Shit, she's practically already got one, the Vought guys love her.”“How time critical is this?” You ask. “I've still got shit to do for tomorrow.”Alyssa shrugs this time. “Tabby sounded like she wanted you as soon as possible-”“Lewd.” Her sister interjects.“Brigitte didn't make it sound too important, but that's Brigitte. She's kinda weird. Sammy, eh. You know Sammy.” Well, I'll finish chow, then I'll go see one of them.  Guess I'd better get moving, then. (who do you want to go see first?)
>>33431390> Guess I'd better get moving, then. (who do you want to go see first?)Ice. Best not keep the boss lady waiting.
>>33431390>[x] Guess I'd better get moving, then. (who do you want to go see first?)Lets she the bosslady first, than everyone's favorite Voodoo SEAL Witch.
>>33431390> Guess I'd better get moving, then.Take the drumstick with us and head to see the boss first. Maybe take a few pieces of chicken with us. She probably hasn't eaten. After we sort that, Brigitte.
>>33431390> Guess I'd better get moving, then. (Ice)Take the drumstick with us.
>>33431390>[X] Guess I'd better get moving, then. (who do you want to go see first?)Ice first, since she seems to be in a hurry. We can visit Merlin after if she needs to be involved.
 Well, I'll finish chow, then I'll go see one of them.Chow before bitches. We can see Ice then.
>>33431390>[x] Well, I'll finish chow, then I'll go see one of them.We are hungry.
>>33431390 Well, I'll finish chow, then I'll go see one of them. (Ice first)
>>33431390>Well, I'll finish chow, then I'll go see one of them.Nobody is going to get mad if we finish eating. Pussy whipped as fuck, except you have to get the pussy first before you get whipped by it.
>>33431390>> Well, I'll finish chow, then I'll go see one of them.
>>33431451>She probably hasn't eatenEven though she ate last time we checked, we still need to stay on top of her. About that.
>>33431390>[x] Well, I'll finish chow, then I'll go see one of them.
>>33431390[x] Well, I'll finish chow, then I'll go see one of them.
>>33431451>Take the drumstick with us and head to see the boss first. Maybe take a few pieces of chicken with us. She probably hasn't eaten. After we sort that, Brigitte.This. I like this.
[x] Guess I'd better get moving, then. (who do you want to go see first?)You sigh, then stand up, carrying the drumstick with you. “Guess I'd better get moving, then.” You say, sadly looking at the plate of food. While you're sure there's still going to be some left, you'd have liked to have gotten a good meal in, though the four pieces of chicken you did have will last you a while. “The boss up in her office?” You ask, standing up and grabbing your bag of loot. Mav looks at it, then at you, then shrugs and digs into her dirty rice. Alyssa shakes her head. “Down in the hangar, or Sammy's wizardry tower.”“I wouldn't call it a tower. Maybe a lair?” “Maybe they should give her the messed up tower! I heard they were thinking about renovating it.”You shake your head, walking out the door and turning down to head to the hangar.There's a slight commotion down here, with a crowd of witches- some you recognize, some you don't- standing around the roll-up door separating Merlin's shop from the rest of the hangar. You're lucky, you think, that you're as tall as you are, standing over most of the witches pretty easily. It makes you easy to notice. “Frank!” Ice calls from inside the shop. “Hey, over here!” A couple of the witches in the crowd half-turn to get a better look at you, and they move out of the way as you pass. The boss is on a striker rack, one of the two housing Merlin's testbed units. You notice the boss is barefoot- a sign either she's been in the strikers or she's planning to be in them soon. “Heya boss, you wanted to see me?” You ask, gnawing absently on the drumstick. She eyes it, and you offer the half-eaten piece of meat to her. “Drumstick?” “Thanks, I already ate.” She says, and you shrug, going back to chewing. “Change of plans, you suddenly became a lot less interesting.” 1/2
You narrow your eyes. “What are you on about?” She indicates the prototype. “The Matrons and the Navy want to see these in action yesterday, and they're willing to scrub your flights to do it. You'll square off against Natalya at the end of the week, then you're on the hook to help us put these through their paces.”“Why does that sound boring as hell?” You ask. “Probably because for you, it will be. They'll want to see it in action against you, though.” She says, standing up so you have to crane your neck back to look at her. “Here, watch out, I'm going to start them up.”She mounts the units with practiced ease, and you can hear the slight hiss of something pressurizing. When she does, along with the low whine of hydraulics. “Adjusting the fit.” She says, when you look at her quizzicaly. “So here's the deal. I have to take these up to a range to start showing them off. Admiral Nixon is chopping his way here right now, I want you to stay put and greet him with Slider. Informal, don't worry about a dress uniform, he said he's flying in.”You nod, taking a step back as she starts the strikers up and retrieves their weapon out of the rack, connecting the feed from her right side unit to it, then slinging it and reaching for a MFD and HUD headband. “As soon as he lands, he's going to want to join us up there. Get with Slider for flight planning, I'm leaving her back here to help out. And find Mav, I need to talk to her. Got all that?” No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral? I think I may have missed some things, yeah. (Questions? Write 'em in!)
>>33432250> No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?
>>33432250[X] No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?>>33432227Now in gif
>>33432250> No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?Can't think of anything to ask.
>>33432250> No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?We need to get our explanations in order NOW and we need every minute to talk it over with our buddies and put together a good snowjob. "Honest, boss. We totally haven't screwed over the Navy in how we handled this whole research thing, no matter how much it looks like we have!"
>>33432250>[X] No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?
>>33432250> No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?I'm really wondering what the cost for Merlin's little striker prototypes are.
>>33432250>[x] I think I may have missed some things, yeah. (Questions? Write 'em in!)"That mean I'll be able to use missiles against you?"
>>33432250[X] No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?
 No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?Sounds like the matrons have found a new toy to ogle over. To bad we aren't off the hook.
>>33432250>[x] No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?If someone comes up with a good question I'll change my vote but for now.>>33432351What you on about? The new shit they want to see is all of two threads old, meaning they are a few days old at most. The "research" was a Matron thingy. Hell the only thing I can think of that we screwed anyone over with was the sparkle detecting radar and that was for good reason.
>>33432250Probably mention she's eatingAlso I guess they won't rely on us for the next thing in witches since one of the disadvantages for them against steel wings were missiles
>>33432495I think the point is Merlin having a Corporate sponsored R&D lab at hand. Which is not cleared with any brass or has any agreement on how to handle/license/whatever the shit she chucks out.
>>33432250 No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?
>>33432495Alright, check this out. 1) We passed up an opportunity to keep gnome/witch synergy or whatever we have going on an American-only thing. 1a) We did so in favor of what's turned into a huge-ass multinational research thing, which is, perhaps fortunately, going nowhere. 2) We (and Ice) accepted honors, title and grants from a foreign (albeit allied) power. This is potentially a big issue.3) Oh, and there's what Merlin's up to. Bear in mind that one of her more reliable techs is a foreign national.
>>33432739>1) We passed up an opportunity to keep gnome/witch synergy or whatever we have going on an American-only thing.Personally, I doubt that would ever happen long-term, but that's my own opinion. There's concerns, sure, but one of the big issues is an American matron who will go out of her way to sabotage us or otherwise screw us over.I don't see keeping things strictly American as being viable or even sensible, given that issue, and its unlikely to go away anytime soon, if ever.>1a) We did so in favor of what's turned into a huge-ass multinational research thing, which is, perhaps fortunately, going nowhere. Give it time, I think you'll likely end up eating your words on it going nowhere, but that's again my opinion.>2) We (and Ice) accepted honors, title and grants from a foreign (albeit allied) power. This is potentially a big issue.Not seeing the issue here either, particularly since that falls under the "special relationship" or whatever that's supposed to be shared between us and them, but I suppose some other anons might better explain exactly why it's a big issue.
>>33432739Yea, I got the feeling the brass is going to be rather annoyed with us.
>>334327391b) In doing so, we pulled 2 of the most advanced steel-wings from the front-line. Ditto for half-a-dozen combat witches. Not to talk about all the foreign witches running around in Barin.
>>33432739>3) Oh, and there's what Merlin's up to. Bear in mind that one of her more reliable techs is a foreign national.That can be mitigated once she marries him.
>>33433005With the shit he is working with, still gonna need a big fat security clearance.
>>33432681Ok that makes more sense.>>33432739>1While I prefer what we ended up doing, I do see this is an issue but I doubt it's going to be that bad as if it was we would have likely been pulled pretty fast. The Navy let alone Nixon has the clout to do that if they saw it as a issue.>2 We may very well get into some trouble over this. IIRC Congress has to get involved when it comes to foreign titles and such.>3Recent development, while any info that has already been shared is uncontrolled I'm sure there is rules that can be put in place to protect any further development. Kenji was presumably signed off by the Navy to join the squadron on a exchange, he is cleared. We had little control over 3 specially the new stuff, number 2 is the only thing I can see us getting into deep shit with and that can be mitigated. 1, 1a, and 1b here>>33432998 are non-issues as if the Navy had an issue, they would NOT let it happen.
>>33432998You realize that would have happen if we went to America, right? There was no way they were going to just pull Frank/Merlin out and that be it. The only difference is more American witches would have been pulled off the fronts instead of one two witches from allies/non-allies.
[x] No prob, boss. ETA on the Admiral?“No prob, boss.” You say, feeling a mix of emotions. On the one hand, it's good that you're no longer the subject of everyone's intense scrutiny, on the other hand, you're not looking forward to being relegated to a chase role in a whole new series of displays and tests- especially if the program is moved back to the US. “Any ETA on the Admiral?” She checks her watch- a small piece just between her MFD and her hand. “Probably about two hours, he said he'd be flying out of London.” You nod. “And listen I-” She pauses, then shakes her head. “I want you to do me a favor. Go talk to Matron O'hare. She's been the one that's listened to me the most, and she's been the one that's helped us out with the rest. She had some findings she wanted to talk about, but now I'm afraid I won't have the time.”“You want that done now?” You ask, having to almost yell over the high-pitched scream of the strikers. She shakes her head. “No, you don't have to now. Besides, you couldn't, she's going to be in the air. But make some time for it.”You nod. “Ok, that's it. Do me a favor though and change into a clean flight suit at least, before you see the Admiral. What the hell were you doing anyway, rolling around in the dirt?” She says. “Nevermind, don't tell me.” She unlocks the strikers from the rack with a practiced movement- you can't help but wonder if that's standardized across all units, and glides forward between that gathered witches, leaving you, for a moment at least, alone in Merlin’s shop. The moment doesn't last. “Baron.” Brigitte greets smoothly as the crowd disperses, their look at the newest striker over for now. “I be needin ta have words with ya.” Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change.  Can it wait?
>>33433097>[x] Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change.
>>33433097> Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change.
>>33433097> Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change.I think we can count on this to be important, and not frivolous.
>>33433055>>33432739>2Given how it usually goes in this setting I think witch-related titles are a bit outside if Congress' control.
>>33433097> Talk and walk, Brigitte. I gotta change.
>>33433097> Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change.Boy shit starts moving when an Admiral is about to show up.
>>33433097>[X] Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change.
 Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change.Gotta multi-task. And it gets shit off our to-do list.
>>33433097> Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change. I already miss dungeon crawling with Mav
>>33433097[X] Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change.
>>33433235it is still down therehissssss
>>33433097> Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change. >>33433269We will find him yet!
>>33433439remember SHIN HELLCOW!
[x] Talk and walk, Brigitte, I gotta change. “Walk and talk, Brigitte, I gotta change.” You say, heading back towards the stairs leading into the castle proper. “Dat be fine. Lesten, de leedle one, Samantha, she be a problem.” She says. You pause. “What do you mean?” “She a security risk, baron. De aerospace boys, dey to anxious to turn her loose, let her play. Dey only seein de potential of what she can do for dem, not what happens if someting git back to people what it don't need to be gittin back to.” She says, shaking her head. “She already done turned dese witches on dere heads wit her strikers, and dey be havin Roosians with dem.”“You think they're taking notes?” You ask. “Baron, I be worried dey try to take her.” She says. “Don't go tinkin dey your friends cos one's de momma of a girl who be wantin you next to her at night and de other tinks you a warrior god. Dey still Roosian, dey still be lookin out for deirs first.” “So what do you want me to do?” She pauses. “Baron, I need ya to tell her to wait. I want de aerospace people gone, and I want her playhouse sent back to de states to wait for her. I don't be thinkin she be listenin to me, but she be lookin at you like her idol. She be listening to you, I tink.”1/2
You pause. “She wouldn't take that well at all.” Brigitte nods. “I be knowin dat. If I be havin another idea and givin you an option, I would.”“What about the matrons?” You ask. “They'll complain.” Brigitte looks at you, her eyes cold. “Dey not bein a problem, I see to dat personal.”You're starting to get the distinct impression there's a lot more to this Cajun witch than meets the eye. That look makes you really, really glad you're on the same side as you change. Dressed in a fresh flight suit, you find Brigitte waiting outside your door, cleaning her nails with a combat knife. She smiles when she sees you look at it warily, and sheathes it at the small of her back. “Don't be worrin bout dat none, baron.” She says, dismissing it. “I do no be thinkin you die so easy, even for me. You need ta worry bout yourself more, I be thinkin.” That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this. Hey, I'll go talk to Merlin, alone ok? You see where she got to?
>>33433706Nixon gets here in like 2 hours.Why not just ask his opinion?
>>33433706> That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.
>>33433706> That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.Best to take the security expert with us.
>>33433706>[X] Hey, I'll go talk to Merlin, alone ok? You see where she got to?In the meantime, what can we have Merlin do that won't be a security risk?
>>33433706>[x] That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.tasty brown has a point!
>>33433706> That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.This is going to be fun talk. I HATE YOU!
>>33433731That's actually...a pretty good idea>>33433706> That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.We should talk to her anyways, but if Nixon okays it, great. If he agrees with Bridgette, well that's at least something
 That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.I feel like I called this one, but I didn't. It's a strange feeling.
>>33433706>[x] That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.This will be so very fun.>Brigitte looks at you, her eyes cold. “Dey not bein a problem, I see to dat personal.”Brigitte is the greatest.
>>33433706[X] Hey, I'll go talk to Merlin, alone ok? You see where she got to?
>>33433706>[x] That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.
>>33433706> That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.I think we need the security expert on hand for this one, simply to help us figure out what can be done in a secure way. Merlin's not gonna want to give up her lab completely.
>>33433706[x] That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.Wait, THAT'S what Brigette looks like?Shieeeetttt, between that and "the Roosians," it's time to board the Brigette train.
>>33433887She may very well have to until we get back state side. I don't think there's enough personally under Brigitte's command to watch, her(Merlin), her gear, her lab, the squads gear, and Frank. Something got to give here and the lab/stuff she's working on is it.And remember there is a war going on. We've been fairly sheltered from it being here.
>>33433803MOUSE! Tank witches when?
>>33434026NEVERRRR GWAHAHAHAHAHAHhttp://pastebin.com/J10DvW5gHere, have an intermediary short I wrote a few nights ago. Real talk though, I should be back in action early next month. Once I work things out there.
>>33433981its kinda pulling me in to the waifu war.....
damn you shitty summer storm
Going through some of the SW1991 stuff. Ghost... Where? When? Ghost!?
>>33434109Dat ending. So hype
>>33433835Why does Erica have black bangs in some pictures?
>>33434240Thats her familiar.
>>33434240Doesn't she get them when her familiar pops out?
>>33434109You still got it you Magnificent Bastard!>>33434210When we get a Variable Fighter>>33434240Instead of ears she gets that.
>>33434210hmmmmm a full armor striker?
>>33434347that is never good to see....
>>33434347>inb4 russians already making them
>>33434347Oh goddammit, the final boss battle of the war is going to be against MechaStalin ensconced in one of those, isn't it?
>>33434109Aw man... She took the operation...
>>33434347Epic battle with Zero playing in the background?
>>33434454I thought we told her not to!
>>33434454You don't remember that thread or her options, do you?
>>33434536but we told her not to!
>>33434536Shes sitting in the tonk.Why would she be in the damn tonk if she wasn't able or mobile already. And how would she be so fast if she didn't take the operation?
>>33434568Yeah, you don't thanks for confirming that.
>>33434347Well shit, hold on to your butts, this is going to be a bumpy ride!
>>33434512>>33434558It was her choice.>>33434568Surprise Healwitch? I don't think she'd need her legs working to be sitting in the tonk.
>>33434618Was it? Its been a while.
>>33434618but we are not going to be happy about it
>>33434680Then try re-reading the thread before mouthing off. That would save a lot of time.
>>33434714nah its faster to just ask here
>>33434268>>33434253>>33434249Seems like Erica has a dachsund familiar and Ursula has a badger. They both get the dark hair instead of ears and a tail. I guess that makes sense, dachsund ears droop instead of stand up and badgers have very small ears.I can't remember if this was ever mentioned but do the shark twins manifest fins? I know they can get the teeth at least. And does Slider have a forked tongue?
>>33434731Then continue being an ignorant dumbass.
>>33434765so which was it again?
>>33434763When she's manifesting her familiar, Slider does have a forked tongue, yes.
>>33434781Go read that thread and find out.
>>33434815but im asking you
>>33434801fucking metal and lewd!
[x] That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.You shake your head. “That's what they all say. Well, let's go talk to Merlin. Not looking forward to this.”“You tink I am?” Brigitte says. “It goan break her heart, I know it. But I don't be havin the girls to be watchin her, an you, and de squadron's gear, an your fighter, and her lab, and everyting else. I'm not even sure I be trustin her boyfriend, he be hidin something I tink.”“Like what?” You ask. She shakes her head. “I don't be knowin, so I don't be actin on it yet. An I be askin you to keep it to yoursel, too. Don't be needin to ruin her whole world on a hunch and a worry, dis be bad enough as is, I tink.”Brigitte leads you back towards the kitchen- you must have just missed Merlin. Sure enough, she's in there with Mav, raiding the chicken. She looks up and smiles when she sees you- though her face falls a second later at your expression. “W-what's wrong?” She asks. “Merlin I-” You start, but Brigitte steps in with a short laugh. “Baron, don't you be takin credit for my ideas, now. Dis be from me, little sistah. Not de baron.”You pause, thinking about your wording now. “Brigitte and I were talking, and we'd like you to send your lab back to the US to wait for you.” You say. “Brigitte thinks that what you're doing could cause trouble if the wrong people got ahold of it.”“We not be tryin to be doin ya dirty, little one.” Brigitte says, though you've noticed Merlin’s expression is one of vague relief. “But we be worried someone be tryin to grab ya or your strikers, and dat's too much.”1/2
To your surprise and great relief, Merlin nods. “I-I know. Kenji s-said the same thing. I got carried a-away a-and now it's a problem. I-I'm sorry.” “Dere's noting to be apologisin for.” Brigitte responds- an instant before you do. “You be blessed to be havin all de gifts you do. We just askin you to not use some of dem right now, dat be all.”You nod. “Besides, think of what you could do with a full shop, stateside!” She smiles. “Y-you think they'd let me h-have one?” You return her grin, reaching out to ruffle her hair- though she's got the presence of mind to hold onto her glasses as you do. “Kiddo, I think they'll be begging you to take one.”You're able to snag another piece of chicken before Slider stops by. “Hey, Nixon's due in a couple. C'mon.”“You be a cold one, snek. Takin a man from shiken like dat.” Brigitte scolds with a laugh. “For true, dat cold.”“I'm sure I'll make it up to him later. C'mon, you can come too, since you're here.” Slider responds.  Right behind you.  Might as well grab Merlin and Mav too, let's bring the whole gang.

Remind me how old Kenji and Merlin are by this point?
>>33435392Merlin is 15 or 16 I think. Kenji is only a little older I think/hope.
>>33435296It's not under the sheets.Lewd averted.
>>33435435Haha, it's full Romeo and Juliet! Ten year age difference go.
>>33435392Merlin is 16 and Kenji is... never been mentioned, not too much older I hope.

>>33436080Your phrasing implied an improper relationship with a lady of delicate temperament, Merlin.>>33436088FUCK, I KNEW I FORGOT SOMEONE.
>>33436080I thought that was Mav who thought that... Though I can see Slider saying that too. Hell, they probably both did.
[x] Might as well grab Merlin and Mav too, let's bring the whole gang. You look back over your shoulder at the two witches, and shake your head. “Oh no, I'm not leaving you two to eat all the food. C'mon, you can come welcome the admiral too.”Merlin nods and stands up, but Mav casts one longing look at the now much-reduced plate of chicken, then stands up. “Fine, but I'm only doing this because you rank me. And it's under protest. Sir.” “Hey, so, who all knows about your nickname for Yo-” You start, before she cuts you off. “Now, don't go getting hasty on me. Uh, I mean, Frank.” You laugh. “S'what I thought.”“Anyone ever tell you you play dirty?” Mav asks. “I play to win.” You correct. The helicopter- a navy Seahawk- touches down on the pad without much trouble- you briefly envy the pilots, being able to land anywhere like they are, but, thinking about how ugly they are, and how slow and relatively boring their flight profiles are, you quickly re-think your admiration. Still, you run forward to help the admiral with his bag- a standard, OD green Sea bag tossed out of the door by the old man, before he steps down, one hand on his cover to hold it in place against the downwash.You grab the bag and greet him with a handshake as the 'hawk pilot pulls collective and lifts his bird off the pad. “Good to see you, son! Glad to see you haven't gone completely crazy here!” He says, returning your salute, then offering a handshake. “Barin does that to pilots, ya know. Makes 'em crazy.” “How can you tell I'm not, sir?” You ask, laughing. 1/2
“Son, if the worst you've done here is managed to get knighted, get every single aerospace company in the states screaming for the navy to release your RIO from her contract-” He pauses, looking at Merlin. “Hello, hon. You're quite popular, you know?” She nods, and he laughs. “And-” He continues, his train of thought apparently unbroken. “And found out your CO was the inheritor to the Russian throne, I think you'll have come off a lot more sane than the last pilot I knew who flew out of this base.”“Who was that, sir?” You ask. He laughs and shakes his head. “Army widow driver, back during the war. Caught him sneaking aboard for, get this, Ice cream.” He laughs again. “Things were different back then.”“Sounds like it, sir.” You respond, carefully. “So!” He says, clapping his hands together and rubbing them. “I hear there's been some interesting developments here. Care to fill me in?”  I can do you better than that, sir, I can show you. Yes sir, maybe we should use the commander's office? It's more secure.

>>33436147[X] I can do you better than that, sir, I can show you.
>>33435742Hmm well according to wikipedia being born on US soil is automatic citizenship. If born overseas it still applies if the parents are married, at least one is a citizen and had lived in the US at some point prior. If the other parent isn't a US citizen it gets a little more muddy, but basically it amounts to paperwork.Far as I can tell the only way Merlin could run into issues is if she is both married and has a kid before she turns 16. Which is unlikely.Imperial Japan apparently handles citizenship patrilineally, but I have no idea how dual citizenship would work in this situation.
>>33436359You're a citizen of both countries according to my second generation friends and their two passports.
>>33436147 Yes sir, maybe we should use the commander's office? It's more secure.We still have russians on base.
>>33436419I didn't think Japan allowed dual citizenship
>>33436359Whups, quoted the wrong post.>>33436419Every time I hear about people with more than one passport I always think of that guy from Papers Please.
>>33436147> I can do you better than that, sir, I can show you.
>>33436541Papers, please, Comrade. We are of having to secure the Rodina against external aggression from the evil, Imperial Capitalist West.
>>33436454Only for naturalization. You can be born with dual-citizenship. (i.e Japanese father and American mother or Japanese father and in the US).
>>33436454As I'm aware (my information is 5 years old), Japan technically doesn't, but they don't try to enforce it either, as long as you're not doing any government work.
[x] Yes sir, maybe we should use the commander's office? It's more secure. You nod. “Yes, sir. Let's head up to the boss' office, she's out right now, but it's more secure.”The admiral follows you up, talking with Brigitte- the two of them seem to know each other and it seems like she's about on the same terms with him you are, so you take that as a good sign. You naturally take the futon, sitting in the center and leaning back- though you have to check your motion to stretch out when Merlin sits to one side of you and Slider to the other. Brigitte, thankfully, shakes her head, laughs, and sits in one of the chairs in front of the desk, leaving Ice's nice chair for Admiral Nixon. “So, son. Lot of stories we've been hearing. Can you fill me in on some of them?” He says. “Where do you want me to start, sir?” You ask. “How about with Matron Longstreet. She's been raising cain about how you sold secrets that rightfully belonged to America to foreign powers and worked to undermine her efforts to create a unified American tradition.” He says. “It's pretty serious, even if we're getting alternate stories about this from the Matrons of a lot of allied nations.”1/2
“I wasn't aware I'd sold secrets at all, sir.” You say, honestly. “And I thought this had been done with the Navy's explicit permission?” “Atlantic command's permission, yes.” He responds. “But Atlantic fleet falls under me, now, and I'm less inclined to let my best air combat assets cool their heels in some old castle.”“You mean-” You start, and he shakes his head. “We can't back out of any promises we've already made, son, but we're damn sure not going to make any more. If they haven't gotten what they were after out of you by now, they'll just have to wait. But, Matron Longstreet has been very insistent you've turned against the best interests of the American government and the Navy.” “Sir, all due respect, she's trying to make herself more important and she's just screaming because I won't play her bullshit.” “Sir, she was attempting to blackmail Commander Kazanski by withholding her property that established her link to the Russian throne. She's trying to keep the heat off herself.”

She's trying to keep the heat off herself.”I have to go with both because she was trying to blackmail Ice to get to Merlin so she could then claim credit for any discoverers that can be found from Merlin, which would be a huge boost to her reputation. When that backfired on her she continued to withhold Ice's property out of spite.
>>33436883 “Sir, she was attempting to blackmail Commander Kazanski by withholding her property that established her link to the Russian throne. She's trying to keep the heat off herself.”
We know nixon knows.Slider aside, is mav and bridgette in on Ice's secret?
>>33436883> “Sir, she was attempting to blackmail Commander Kazanski by withholding her property that established her link to the Russian throne. She's trying to keep the heat off herself.”It's not even necessarily what she was withholding that was important; that she was even blackmailing a navy officer to begin with is pretty damning.
>>33436883>[x] “Sir, she was attempting to blackmail Commander Kazanski by withholding her property that established her link to the Russian throne. She's trying to keep the heat off herself.”
Alright so this vote is more or less unanimous.In the meantime, I posit a topic.Brigitte is the best girl and also the best girl for Frank. Discuss.

>>33437303>Brigitte is the best girl and also the best girl for Frank. Discuss.Slider uses her brashness to cover over her lack of experience.With Ice, there's her submissive streak.Katya's an exhibitionist.So Brigitte's appeal must be NTR. For all of Frank's other, more established suitors. Just imagine the three of them crying and fingering themselves outside Frank's room as he nails his new Delicious Brown Best Girl.You know you want it.

It's my headcanon that Frank has twins by one of his wives and he names them Thomas and Catherine.
I bet Bridgette is a true Nawlins Saints fan.

[x] “Sir, she was attempting to blackmail Commander Kazanski by withholding her property that established her link to the Russian throne. She's trying to keep the heat off herself.”You take a breath, trying to figure out how best to phrase it, before deciding 'fuck it all' and just letting go. “Sir, she was attempting to blackmail Commander Kazanski by withholding her property that established her link to the Russian throne. She's just trying to keep the heat off herself.”Nixon shakes his head. “Son, witch politics are ten times more dangerous than the rest of humanity's. You went and got involved in them?” “Sir, I'm just relaying why she's so insistent on any wrongdoing on my part.” You say. He nods, thoughtfully. “Well, she can, and probably will defend that as internal witch business, but at the same time I can't recommend we remove you from duty for acting on behalf of your commanding officers. Especially not when it's internal witch business. If they have a problem with you, they can handle it.” He says, as if closing that topic of discussion. “Now, about Miss Wells' incredible rise to prominence in the circles of aircraft and striker designers.” He says, looking at Merlin. “I've had no fewer than a dozen handwritten letters hit my inbox from the directors of every major aerospace company working in the US- to include Marstech- asking us to release Lieutenant Wells from her contractual obligations and allow her into the civilian market, or, failing that, assign her in advisory capacity to one of them.”He looks back at you. “Frankly, son, I've heard some impossible things on the way in. What's this about super strikers and some kind of magical weapons bay?”  Let Merlin field it, afterall, they're her designs.  “Sir, Merlin's made a series of comprehensive upgrades to both the striker platform as we know it and the Wyvern. I don't fully understand it all myself.”

>>33438175MERLIN IS NOT FOR LEWDS
>>33438201oh give it up
>>33438102>Merlin want to give us built-in strikers so we can fly without a steelwing, unlike her
>>33438230I'm not even the guy to whom you responded, but the fight will never end
[x] Let Merlin field it, afterall, they're her designs. You jostle Merlin with an elbow, and she looks up at you, then looks at the admiral. “W-well.” She says, hesitantly. “I-I, made s-some changes to s-strikers. I g-got to thinking about h-how they're just parts of a s-system, but our fighter they're based on is a w-whole system by itself. I-I just tried to copy that.”Nixon nods. “So what all can these new strikers do?” “W-well. They c-can house full sized m-missiles, about a-as many as one of our small bays on t-the wyvern per striker. W-we designed conformal pods f-for ammunition and utility, s-so we can attach countermeasures o-or ECM or even some rockets f-for ground attack.” She continues, warming up to the subject. “W-we also designed a n-new helmet that combines t-the MFD and HUD displays they h-have, a-and worked missile controls into their weapons.” She looks at Brigitte. “W-we found a way t-to work with personal w-weapons Brigitte, b-but we didn't get any built yet. M-maybe if we keep the shop a day o-or two more.”“Wait, so you're telling me you designed strikers with the ability to carry full sized missiles?” Nixon asks, leaning back. Merlin nods. 1/2
“Jesus, that's...” He shakes his head, awestruck. “That's huge. No wonder they were after you.”“W-well, that's not a-all. I a-also designed an e-extradimensional bay for the w-wyvern. With i-it I think w-we can carry f-four times the weapons payload.”“Four times-” Nixon asks. “B-but it needs a witch.” Merlin finishes. “That-” He pauses. “What bout going back to the states? Do you want to? I'm ready to cut orders for you right now if you want.”Merlin shakes her head vigorously. “N-no! I w-won't go home w-without F-frank a-and everyone else.”Nixon nods. “I'd figured you'd say that.” He leans back again. “That's the big two issues for now. Your titles and holdings we're not going to start with because as far as we're concerned, that's witch business. Now, if you don't mind, I need some chow and I need a bed.”“I know the feeling, sir.” You say, laughing. “There's some damn good chicken down in the kitchen.”You're not sure who looks happier to hear that- Nixon, to hear about the food, or Brigitte, about the compliment to her cooking.
>>33438509>One of you already used the pic I wanted, have a delicious brown girl.jpgIt was this... >>33434210 wasn't it?
And yep, that's it for the night. I'm sure someone will beat me to the post on that, haha. THere is some good news, a good friend of mine's been working on some stuff, said he might post a bit tonight, so we'll see. haha. In the meantime, guys, I don't have anything else, so we'll be back next week at the regular time! Till then, gents, cheers!
>>33438596Thanks for the run, boss. Take it easy.
>>33438596Thanks for the run.
>>33438619Tell us! You monster!
>>33438596See you next week.
>>33438596Thanks for the run!I will admit to missing last week/two weeks ago's forever runs though
Thanks for running, Ghost!Also, update on the NTR fic. Progress is moving along steadily, re-reading the Rollercoaster to get all the characters down. And I mean all of them. Rough outline is in done, will be posted after next thread.
>>33438596Thanks for the run, it's always a PLEASURE!
"I didn't think the mountains would look that pretty with the sunset reflecting off of them.""It's the snow on the top," he told her. "Just like ice or water. 's pretty." With a tilt of his foot, he set the hammock rocking again, as the sun went down in Wyoming."As pretty as I am, Emmett?" she asked, her familiar's ear flicking his nose. Scrunching it, he scoffed."Ha! Nothing's as pretty as you, Missus Ramsey.""Flatterer," she grins up at him, and rests her head against his chest again. "Shamelessly," he tells her cheerfully, and they both fall silent to watch the rest of the sunset.
So at first, this was just going to be a short. A dirty short. I might still take it that way (onscreen, that is) if I feel up to it. If so, expect a pastebin for the smutty stuff. In the meantime, here's the start to what might be a longer thing.Maverick was out trying to forget Orion again. Three hours, two bars, and four drinks in, she was starting to have a little luck. The music thumped, the lights strobed, and the Japanese club scene was roughly what she expected it to be. The local color was certainly interesting enough, but nothing--and no one--was jumping out at her. She had a reputation to keep up, dammit. But so far, no one in this bar or the one that came before it stuck out to her any more than the Synthpop rattling her glass.And that was when she saw her rack. "Oh, yeah," she muttered to herself, downing her drink as she stood, "that'll do." With a target for the night--a pretty redhead in uniform, it turned out--the Lieutenant put on her best military swagger, and sauntered over to her table, getting a better eyeful as she went.A natural redhead in the sea of dark hair or exotic dye-jobs populating the nightclub, Maverick's buzzed mind dove immediately for the gutter, wondering faintly if the top and bottom matched. The girl was a standout in more ways than one--cool and calm with a tall glass of beer, surrounded by giggling kids with fruity mixed drinks. And sweet lord, her curves. Her bomber jacket (genuine?) couldn't hide them as she leaned over the bar, a low-cut little black dress clashing grandly and perfectly with her coat and her surroundings. Maverick recognized military bearing immediately, and it excited her even more. This was going to be fun.
>>33438667you sicken me
>>33438692"Hey there," she said with a Suave grin, "you don't look IJN. What are you doing in a place like this?"The first thing Maverick noticed was the eyes--turning sharply to fix her at the intrusion, sizing her up. She recognized that look. After a moment, the redhead grinned and replied, with just a hint of a... German? Accent. "Little girls, mostly. Haven't found a real woman in the bunch.""You have now," Mav replied, slipping in to the spot beside her. "What's your outfit?""Luftwaffe," said the redhead. "Katherine Young." That raised more questions than it answered--Maverick caught on to the game immediately. Leave her guessing as to her rank, or if she was special forces. Maverick grinned back. "Patty Mitchell, United States Navy. What brings you out here?""Visiting family friends," she replied, taking a long, slow sip of her beer before cringing theatrically. "Bah, piss swill. Tell me, Miss America," Young asked, "you know anywhere I can get a real drink in these islands?"Mav's grin widened. The hook was set. "Maybe," she offered. "Come on, let's get out of here. And call me Patty."Despite her complaint, Young lifted her glass and drained it swiftly, slamming it back down on the counter and wiping her mouth with the back of her hand. "Lead the way."
>>33438707Yeah, the pic is the best part of this. All those typos and shit.As for the pic, I asked a friend of mine to help and he generously provided.
>>33438714hey buddy, you still alive?
>>33438868>>33438714You seem to need this.
>>33438858The art looks familiar, as does the coloring. Name of the drawfag?
>>33438868Unfortunately for us both, that's the end of it so far. Hopefully it was at least enough to get you interested.
>>33438917He's done some stuff for the original SWQ. Pic related.
Man, whichever one of you recommended I read Shattered Sword...thank you very much. Been a great read thus far
>>33439156Ooooh, I want to buy my own copy come to think of it. Thanks for reminding me.
>>33439156So it is good? You just sold it for me.
>>33439191I've been enjoying it, yes. It does a really good job of filling in specifics that weren't as well-covered in Sunburst and Kaigun
>>33438975I'm interested faggot. now write more
>>33439264WORKING ON ITWELL NOT RIGHT NOW BUT IN THE ABSTRACT SENSEI'LL TRY MY DAMNDEST, YELL AT GHOST TO KEEP TALKING ME UP TO FIGURE OUT SHIT GOING ON
>>33439156It is a good read, innit? Kaigun's a lot more dry, more technical and clinical in how it goes over things. That doesn't bother me, and they're all still miles better than the shitpile that is masters of the air. so whatever.
>>33439345Man, I LOVED Kaigun. I thought that level of nitty-gritty detail was really...well...interesting. I was also impressed by a reference to The Face of Battle in Shattered Sword. That was a read and a half
>>33439345>masters of the airSeriously? Someone thought that was a good title for a book?People never cease to surprise me.
>>33439455I'll put it to you like this. It's about the 8th AF in the ETO. at least, it purports to be. It spends more time- by far- agonizing over the decision to not bomb the extermination camps than it does on Shcweinfurt I and II combined. it spends a full chapter on bombers interred in Switzerland. It's Total, unmitigated garbage and I sincerely regret buying it.
>>33439505Well, I'll thank you for the warning then. I'll avoid it if I ever see it.
>>33439505IIRC Don Miller does that. He's one of those weird breed of military historians who doesn't like talking about the actual history but all the fru-fru save the trees hug each other bullshit
No feels or is the for para witches?
>>33434454only just catching up on the thread, but where was it stated in that that Rockfield was in the tonk? she's only mentioned at the very end
>>33439809I assume she was watching.
>>33439809Probably implication.The last few lines are the actions of the crew members of the boozehound.
>>33439809>>33439920>>33439955It's like you guys didn't read the pastebin or the threads for TW89...
>>33439982She wasn't going to take the Scorpion, and she wasn't the witch in the tank, right? So she can't have been inside the tank.
>>33440017Wait, I just reread that. He went out of his way to conceal the identity of the witch because it being Rockfield was the reveal, not that she was watching the excersise.
>>33440017Read line 5. And think of what rank she is.
>>33440038but MSC is likely Magical Systems Crewman
>>33440081>>33440038Yeah, it's not how you abbreviate Master Seargent. That's MSGT
>>33440081very likely, seeing as it says exactly that...
>>33440017Untrue. At no point during thread 19 was Rockfield pushed away from the Scorpion. She was told to do her research and make an informed decision.
>>33440259what were her choices again? would she be able to crew the tank if she didn't do the scorpion?
>>33440281yep, she would just need a wheelchair to get around outside of the tank
>>33440314Right, cheers anon.(Still faster to ask in the thread)
>>33440281Yes, the difference was waiting for a healwitch to become available (which is odd, in every quest theres always one right around the corner) which IIRC was said to be a wait around the 6-8 month timezone, the scorpion would just get her walking again before thatI hope she went for the healwitch though, that would be the smart thing and she would still tonking it up
>>33440365I remember it being said that while heal witches aren't rare, ones with the skills to heal an injury like her's are, and they are busy with others parts of the war
>>33440449One would think an integral member of a cutting edge frontline SOF unit would be important enough...
>>33440449Pretty much this. Healwitches themselves aren't all that difficult to find, but the ones who can fix up major damage are the very experienced/very powerful ones...and they're rareOnly reason Fronk's alive is because he was afforded access to a witch of that sort of caliber
>>33440525Also even if you can find an expert witch these things still takes time. Georgette is one of the best and it took her a long time just to get Fronk to the point where he wouldn't spontaneously die. And it took Yoshika a whole day to fix Young's liver.
>>33440697>And it took Yoshika a whole day to fix Young's liver.Any bets Oldshika is the Sakamoto's fanily doctor in '89?
>>33441441>Housecalls involve boob-groping as a friendly greeting
>>33438667Looking forward to it. Don't disappoint!
>>33441554feelthy you cunt, don't be a cunt
>>33441554I'm just excited that I'm getting fanwank for my writing, I can't help it
>>33441604so excited you completely missed
>>33441629I did complete miss! You have gotten me good, anon-kun
Rolled 3>>33441629>>33441648At least he isn't shooting blanks.
>>33441554I'll try to avoid it. Although I have to admit, getting the tone down for this is pretty tough.
>>33441661he probably does, knowing his tastes he's got to be sterile, no one that terrible should ever reproduce
>>33441680You're not having any fun. See, the NTR writer is actually having fun, I'm having fun, but I don't see you having any fun.
>>33441719Hes having fun abusing you
>>33441781I'm being abused?
>>33441830Well don't leave me hanging here, show me where this is happening!
