Both Charlotte and Lucina were engaging the Zabanya and Dynames respectively, while you were hunting for their GM Sniper, which had remained hidden throughout the match until it took a shot at you.However, this GM Sniper didn't seem to be armed with a beam sniper rifle as was the standard. Instead, it seemed to be using some kind of high powered kinetic rifle. On the bright side, that mean that your armor could actually resist it. However, that made your beam hard counters like your Defender Ball's I-Field and your anti-beam chaff and coating essentially useless. Also, that gun, whatever it was, hit HARD, hard enough to put a noticeable dent into your Chobham shield with a single shot. You decided to close in on the GM Sniper's position to engage it in close combat. Your Dakka ball hung back to provide suppressing fire while your Defender Ball followed you in. Your sensors warned you of an energy buildup, meaning that the GM Sniper was probably preparing another shot.>Keep your shield. Trust it and the Defender to keep you safe.>Ditch your shield. You'll need the extra speed to close in faster.>Other
>>33994664>>Keep your shield. Trust it and the Defender to keep you safe.
>>33994664>Keep your shield.
In hindsight, I wished we fought the lower ranking team so we can have more fights in before fighting the Gunpla club.Also will we accept challenges from other teams who rank lower then us?
>>33994936I think that we should accept the challenges to keep things fair.
>>33994936Of course! It would be no fun otherwise.
>>33994936Some wording from that faggot of the Gunpla club makes me think this was one of the last few battles we might have before the special qualifiers for the world tourny.
>>33994936We can if we want to I think, but I don't want to miss the qualifiers for the world tournament
>>33994664>Keep shieldEven if broken it still makes for a mean beat stick
>>33995090Exactly. People never remember just how good of a weapon a shield is.
Didn't last thread say that the shield probably wouldnt last a second shot>
>>33995090Hell, if it get's broken, we can always use it as an impromptu stabbing weapon.
Rolled 5, 15, 10 = 30>>33994664You keep your shield raised and ready to take any incoming hits. Sure, that meant you really couldn't aim well and it slowed you down due to a combination of its weight and air resistance, but it was better than getting oneshot by that rifle that GM Sniper was packing. Meanwhile, your Dakkaball hangs back and starts pumping autocannon fire into the forest, but it can't stop the next the shot.>roll 1d20
>>33995213>>33995214>>33995229Well this sucks....Discard or use it as stabbing weapon?
>>33995213>>33995214>>33995229ShitBye bye ball
>>33995213>>33995214>>33995229D-ball is kill?
>>33995204You see the flash, but this close, you don't have time to react. The Defender Ball tries to interpose itself between you and shot, but the shooter apparently accounted for that. The bullet streaks past the Defender Ball and slams into your shield. You're not sure if it's some fluke or it was by design, but you see the round deflect off your shield and nail your Dakka Ball, and it explodes in a ball of flame.Shit.You glance at your radar, which managed to measure the speed, direction, and source of the shot, and you blanch when you see the velocity readings. Hypersonic speeds? That GM Sniper was packing a goddamn railgun!Tossing away your shield, which was now structurally compromised, you mull your options. You're down a Ball and shield. You only have less than a second to decide.>Keep pressing ahead and putting on the pressure!>Fall back and regroup.>Other

>>33995414>>Keep pressing ahead and putting on the pressure!Charge!>>33995454Hell no.Don't use our trump card now. We need it for the 4 way.
Well that wasn't a good start to the thread.
>>33995414>>Keep pressing ahead and putting on the pressure!No time to waste. If that railgun is based on real world physics at all, the capacitors will need time to charge, and the barrel to shed excess heat.
>>33995414>>Keep pressing ahead and putting on the pressure!TURN ON THE TRANS-AM LET'S DO THIS
>>33995597I don't know why you'd apply real world physics to literally fantasy/sci-fibut some real world counterpoints, high discharge one shot batteries and barrel swaps. To continue the theme of real world, veteran M34/42 whermacht crews could dump and charge a barrel in like 3 or 4 seconds.
>>33994664>that gun, whatever it was, hit HARD, hard enough to put a noticeable dent into your Chobham shield with a single shot.We must claim it as Isorla, and use it to build the ultimate sniping Gunpla, the Nu Gundam Whitefeather.>>33995414>Keep pressing ahead and putting on the pressure!>>33996165>veteran M34/42 whermacht crews could dump and charge a barrel in like 3 or 4 seconds.That's because of the way the barrel disconnected. It just popped out to the side and slid right out. You slid the new one in, slapped it back to the center, pulled back, twisted, and it was on. But using that kind of barrel disconnect on a sniper rifle is a bad idea as it costs you accuracy.
Rolled 16>>33995414You grimace and pour more energy into your thrusters. You were already committed, so you had no choice but to keep moving. Your Defender Ball hangs close to you, deploying its Planet Defensors into a wide field large enough to cover you. You fire your head vulcans and expend pop smoke, anything to throw off the sniper's aim.(cont)
>>33996165Exactly, not to mention that if it is a railgun they don't use that kind of barrel.
Guys, I just had a thought.What if GBFQverse is MercCommand Valhalla, the same way GBFverse is Gundam Valhalla?We're fighting Elsa.Which means, if we take her down, she's gonna be yet ANOTHER competitor in the Jackbowl.
>>33996554You finally see it. The GM Sniper. Apparently, it decides to stand its ground and you can see the long barrel of its railgun raised in an effort to hit you before you can get too close. The barrel glows an ominous blue and you know you don't have much time.>Quickdraw. Hit it with your beam rifle before it can fire.>Use your Defender as a shield to get closer.>Fire flashbangs and boost in.>Other

>>33996675>Fire flashbangs and boost in.Quick drawing means we will be moving in a way which gives us a clear shot; he will require the same thing to hit us and is already prepared to shoot.
>>33996675>>Quickdraw. Hit it with your beam rifle before it can fire.
Rolled 19>>33996675You don't think. You flip on your hip mounted grenade launchers and hit the triggers for the flashbangs. With a WHUMP, two flashbang grenades launch in the air. Your optics momentarily shut off to protect you from the sudden glare. Even if your opponent had optic protection, that still meant there were a critical few seconds that they couldn't see, which was all you needed. >roll 1d20
>>33996671MY BODY WOULD NOT BE READY...
>>33997030You drop down right in front of the GM Sniper's position, firing your beam rifle as you drop. However, the GM Sniper manages to barely stay one step ahead of you. It boosts backwards the moment the flashbangs go off, knocking down trees like toothpicks and battering its own armor in the process. The GM Sniper then slings its railgun and starts sprinting away from you, drawing a beam spray gun from a hip holster and firing wildly at you as it runs.>Pursue it.>Stay calm and snipe it as it flees.>Other

CHAPTER MASTER IS A GO
Time to appease /tg/ dice with appropriate music:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A358-QODoI0
Rolled 13>>33997153You take a deep breath to calm yourself down. You had the advantage in this position. The beam spray gun had crappy range, and even then, your Defender Ball's I-Field made sure the shots never hit you, anyways. You kneel down and take careful aim, centering the fleeing GM Sniper in your sights.>roll 1d20
>>33997316Eh, I'd prefer this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHXoYo_YgfY
So, I was thinking about how our Defender Ball is a bit slow. Decently powerful, but I thought of a way that we could get both power and speed. It'd be a bit expensive, but it'd work.Armor it with metal gubbins, or just get a die-cast Ball if possible. (Probably not, but still.) Don't bother with the weapons, because we can do better. We can do pic related.)Call it a Wrecking Ball.
>>33997485Fucking finally. Good job anon have a loli.
>>33997650I don't like lolis.
>>33997691You what? But she just wants your approval and head pats.
Say anons, I had a thought.So, you know how Sei devised a system that gathers up stray Plavsky Particles and uses them to enhance performance?What if one were to construct a weapon, which gathers them up, concentrates them, and blasts them at the enemy. A "Plavsky Buster" if you will. Put it on a kitbash of Nu and Nobel for good measure.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBArXz3cWos
>>33997647I'm not too familiar with the Gundam universe weapons, but could we arm it with lighter energy weaponry to compensate for the defensive equipment it's packing?
>>33997787She'll have neither and like it.
>>33997505You exhale, even though you know that didn't really affect your shot, and pull the trigger. The beam lances out and strikes the fleeing GM Sniper right in the waist. You can see the legs lose power and the entire machine topples to the ground. You almost turn away when you notice that the GM Sniper is still moving.Persistent bugger.>Leave it. Without legs that Sniper won't able to get back into the fight.>Finish it off. Just to be sure.>Other
>>33997791Wouldn't "Plavsky Breaker" be a closer term for a recycle-and-return type of attack?
>>33997843>>Finish it off. Just to be sure.It is now a turret with a railgun.
>>33997843>Finish it off. Just to be sure.A sniper without legs is still dangerous.
>>33997818You're missing the point. We're not giving it any weapons because it doesn't NEED any weapons. It IS the weapon.

>>33997843>Finish it off. Just to be sure.
>>33997900Hate to be That Guy, but there's a difference between honor and generosity. Just think of it as a coup de grace.
>>33997900>>33997935There are three kinds of aces. We're the kind that can read the tide of battle.
>>33997978Ace combat right? Don't think I played the one you are referencing though.
>>33997935"...We protect the meek, and give our lives for honour, but that does not mean that we are generous. Since generosity will cost us our lives..."
>>33997843>Finish it off. Just to be sure."Sorry, buddy.">>33997866Shit, you're right. Starlight Breaker is recycle-and-return. Divine Buster is straight-up raw power.
Rolled 8>>33997843You aim your beam rifle at the GM Sniper and prepare to take a few more shots at it, just to make sure.>roll 1d20

>>33998306Fuck, I am glad I went for a smoke and didn't roll sooner.
>>33998285How the hell would you stat Diabolic Emission or Ragnarok Breaker as Gundam weapons in the first place?
>>33998391Plavsky Particles, son.
>>33998284>>33998285>>33998298Well it's still a success...
>>33998261It feels kinda cheap, but in a game like this, you always had to make sure the kill was certain. You pump several more beam shots into the fallen GM Sniper until you're absolutely sure it's down."Charlotte, Lucina, I got their third person." You announce. "How are you two doing?""Still trying to catch this Dynames." Lucina grunts. "Those dual pistols of his make it hard to get close.""Managing with the Zabanya." Charlotte says, her voice fraught with concentration "Got a couple of his rifle bits down, but I'm mostly just dodging his beamspam at this point."Well, it seems like they were handling themselves fairly well.It's then that you see a gleam of metal in the GM Sniper's wreckage. Maybe the rifle was still intact...?>Attempt to salvage the rifle.>Go assist your team.>Other

>>33998710>>Attempt to salvage the rifle.If we can use it, it would be a big advantage.
>>33998781Actually, the Ball has no armament.The Defender ball doesn't have anything at least
Ok, you guys DO know that this is obvious booby-trap bait right?
Rolled 14>>33998821Yeah. Sadly, I seem to be too late to vote.
>>33998710>Go assist your team.
>>33998817What I was trying to explain was that Planet Defensors, which the Ball does have, were able to be used offensively in Gundam Wing on occasion.
>>33998821The temptation of OOOOH SHINY!!! seems to be too much for us to resist, even it it blows up our arms.
>>33998821Eh, it seems iffy on if its trapped. Freshie with a trapped heavily custom rifle doesnt seem sensible. But GBF is stupid like that so 50/50.
>>33998710You trudge forward towards the fallen GM Sniper. Your Defender Ball takes point, in case there were any nasty booby traps left behind. While fighters normally wouldn't use their enemy's weapons, there actually wasn't any sort of rule against it, and with a goddamn RAILGUN at your fingertips, there was no way you could resist.Unfortunately, when you pry the rifle out of the fallen GM Sniper's arm, you notice there's some slight damage. You frown ,and hope that it's merely cosmetic.>roll 1d20

Rolled 9>>33999029Oh god it was my roll I'm so sorry.
>>33999016You wince as you examine the railgun. Apparently, one of your beam shots grazed the rifle, melting some the casing and damaging the components inside. From what you could tell, the battery pack was basically gone. The capacitors looked intact and charged, so you're sure the rifle is good for at least one more shot.Assuming it didn't explode in your hands.>Take the rifle.>Ditch it.>Other

>>33999253We need to chop up more Strike Freedoms to please the RNG gods!
>>33999115You sigh and gently set the rifle back down. While you were tempted, the risk was too great for potentially little gain. Such a waste of a good rifle. You check your sensors again. They're starting to get fuzzy from all the GN particles the Zabanya, Dynames, and Exia were generating, so you don't have a clear idea of what's going on. You switch to visual sensors, and see the Dynames and Exia dancing in the air as they try to jockey for position. Meanwhile, the Zabanya was pouring beam fire wildly into the trees below, prevented from being able to assists its partner thanks to well timed heavy beam shots and machine gun fire from Charlotte.>Assist Lucina>Assist Charlotte>Other

I wonder if Char can pull off some trick shots, like bouncing solid rounds off the Def-Ball's armor or making beams curve around the I-Field it generates, and still make those shots land?
>>33999506You order your Defender Ball to move to back up Charlotte. Its I-Field would be indispensable to warding off the beams from those bits. Meanwhile, you vector in towards where Lucina is engaging the Dynames. You approach from the cover the trees so they can't see you. You see your Defender reach Charlotte's position, where it plants itself over Charlotte and engages its Defensors and I-Field, easily batting away the pink beams the Zabanya is shooting. This give Charlotte breathing room to actually aim her cannon ,and she nails a rifle bit.You finally reach a position right under Lucina and her opponent, and you look, contemplating what to do.>Try to snipe the Dynames from the forest.>Boost up and hit it from behind with your beam saber.>Other

The Dynames pauses in the air for a second before cutting thrusters and dropping the ground as a defensive measure, barely dodging a horizontal slash from Lucina that would have taken off its head if she had been just a bit faster.However, now that it was in the trees, the Dynames lost a huge chunk of its maneuverability advantage.>Pursue the Dynames.>Lucina can handle it from here.

>>34000909Well, we DID have all those faggots talking about how they hope we get our GN Jesta Juggler trashed beyond repair in this match.And intentionally sabotaging things because you don't get your way has a sad precedent amongst participants in Merc-run Quests.
>>34000969it'd be better to clean that up and have both of us help Char. it's not like she's in deep trouble now.
>>34001107Shame too, Jesta is a great grunt suit.
>>34001170Pople want a theme or a gimmick since Jack doesn't really have a personality quark and people want something other than "build what is going to win the next match" like we've been doing since it's out of character for a guy who keeps saying that battling is about fun.
>>34001201I really don't get the whole theme thing though.It sounds like a paint job and cosmetics then parts
>>34001201Do you not like our balls? we WOULD get something, except we are somehow cash-blocked before we win anything
>>34001215Because that's all it is.
>>34001201I thought our 'theme' if you want to call it that was not Gundams for fun and challenge, Jesta might be badass but at least it's not a Gundam.
>>34001201Are we really gonna have this argument again?We've basically been playing Jack like a garage gearhead, who tweaks and fiddles with his old Corolla, trying to squeeze that next little bit of performance out of it. To Jack as we have played, squeezing protag-tier performance out of grunt suits IS fun.
>>34001215And honestly that's probably all it'll take to make people happy since then we can do weird custom stuff based around that like bullshit scarfs and eagle bombs like the rest of our crew rocks.I think that's were a lot of the dissent comes from; our teammates get these unique never before seen things and we work around what's already around, but tweak it so it fits our jester rig.
>>34001170Yeah and I like the Jesta too.
>>34001250>rest of the crewYou mean the only two people that do that... Because Nobody else does beyond Mac and Amy. And if you say 'but Jake is tank theme!' I'll fucking laugh.
>>34001271I wasn't here when we voted to get the conversion kit, but it was a pleasant surprise when I read the archive. The Jesta is my favorite MS.
>>34001201Well, it is fun. I like the battling a lot more than the non-battaling. And that isn't because the character interactions are shit or something either. So if we go with some themed build, how is it going to be any different than what we are doing right now? Trick question, it's not.
We need to get some /tg/ designed parts or have the ability to scratch build something!

>>34001345.....For some reason, throw in transformers parts? I dunno.

>>34001345"I had a few extra titan bitz and plasticard lying around so you know. Whatever."
>>34000766You decide to go after the Dynames, trudging through the trees and knocking them down as you go. Likewise, Lucina drops down to the ground to prevent herself from being made a target and she starts slicing her way through the trees as if her beam saber were a machete. You can see the top of the Dynames' head just ahead as he desperately tries to gain some distance between you and Lucina. Meanwhile, in the background, you continue to see the Zabanya and Charlotte trading beam fire. Your Defender Ball lives up to its name, continually deflecting beam shots away from Charlotte, but you know that it's got its limits. Even with the infinite energy the GN Drive provides, the I-Field and Defensors were power hungry systems and they would drain the Ball's reserves faster than the GN Drive can fill them.You continue on, knocking trees aside with one hand and hacking away at others with your beam saber in an effort to catch up.>roll 1d20

Did we agree on no plavsky shenanigans?
>>34001345Jesus, Mary, and Joesph no. Do you understand the kind of samefagging shit storm we would have on our hands if Merc let the players make custome shit? And vote on it? The bitchfits afterward would be enough to kill the quest.

>>34001432Then there's that recurring idea of a Harlequin theme, but that doesn't seem to be going anywhere.
>>34001433This is ALSO why we don't have a defined gimmick to our build. It would be a shitstorm the likes of which has not been seen since The Merc Quest Which Shall Not Be Named.
>>34001428>>34001430>>34001436Holy shit this is great.
>>34001425And by some stroke of luck, you hack away at some trees and get a clear view of the Dynames. The enemy mobile suit realizes it's been caught and spins around, raising its twin beam pistols to fire at you.Well, you still got your anti-beam coating and some anti-beam chaff left. It'd be pretty easy to fight him in these conditions, but you wonder if you should save them for the Zabanya instead.>Dodge out of the way and fire.>Stand your ground and fire.>Charge and beam saber.>Other

>>34001684Apparently the dice are NOT Setsuna fans.>>34001713I can say that I'm honestly not. I tried to curry favor with a joke, but the dice gods were displeased by my feeble humor.

>>34001752Thank the system we're using for once.

>>34001794At least Xom is funny.
>>34001680Shiiiiiit, that's what I get for making the choices look similar. Either way the rolls worked out for you.>>34001698It wasn't much of a contest, really. The relatively piddly beam pistols uselessly plink off your anti-beam coated armor like rubber pellets. The Jesta was made out of pretty tough stuff, after all.However, the same could not be said for the Dynames. You drill three shots center of mass, sending the Dynames stumbling back. Lucina then swoops in, finishing the job by slicing its head clean off."Good job." Lucina says."You stole my kill." You pout."We're all on the same team, aren't we?" Lucina says simply.Man...You see that the battle between the Zabanya and Charlotte was still going strong. The Zabanya was down to half its bits, while Charlotte's Crimson Zulu had quite a few beam scorches and partially melted armor. The Defender was still up, but you weren't sure for how long. The Defensors were already out of energy but at least the I-Field was still up.>Go gang up on the Zabanya.>See if Charlotte can handle this guy.>Other
merc might want to look into a new way of rolling dice, it seems /tg/'s are cursed or broken.

>>34002044SMOKE! SMOKE TO GET CLOSE
>>34001849"Come on, Lucina, let's go bag us a Zabanya." You say, spinning your Jesta around to head for the last engagement."All right." Lucina's Exia falls into line behind you. "Plan of attack?""We shoot it until it stops moving." You shrug."Anything more specific?" Lucina sighs."Well take out what's left of the bits." You explain. "Without them the Zabanya's just like any other mobile suit."Up above, you could see the Zabanya trying to root out Charlotte. Now that you were closer, you could see that the pilot's bit control wasn't really that precise. All the rifle bits could only seem to shoot at the same target, which was how the Defender was able to keep Charlotte so effectively protected. You frown, since the bits' advantage would be getting around a enemy's defenses to hit them from behind.Well, not like you were complaining. >Hit the bits from the ground with your ranged weapons.

>>34002396Nice roll, anon!
>>34002396Between you and Lucina and Charlotte, you manage to pretty much down all of the Zabanya's remaining rifle bits. Realizing that it's surrounded, the Zabanya pulls back its shield bits closer to itself to form a somewhat protective barrier. It takes out its dual sniper rifles and starts firing wildly.>Continue to try and engage him from range.

Laugh as we do it.
>>34002874I think we might be fine, the Defender ball is very heavily armored, and has chonam plating on it, like our shield does.It might not be that damaged

Once it burns out or burns down, the unit is junk. You can a vacuum tube amp going until the heat death of the universe. My solid state Onkyo receiver will be lucky to survive until 2018.

>>34003136Is it true that vacuum tubes are more resistant to EMP?
>>34003136My point we don't need parts for their paint job.
>>34003166yes, but EMP hardening is very easy to do, so it's a moot point.
So what do you think are the looks of our audience's faces right now after that whole Battering Ram?

>>34003166ehh....kind of sort of. vac tubes, like the units themselves, generally don't care about EMPs or anything, but they're not immune.Also the fact that they're still plugged into a wall (outlet) means that even if the EMP doesn't fry the unit itself, chances are the incoming power surge will (unless you're hooked up to some sort of surge protector or w/e).tl;dr: more resistant than solid state, maybe, but I would rather have it powered off and unplugged than risk it. Did you know vacuum tubes actually implode due to the, well, vacuum? Wouldn't want my eyes or hands anywhere near that.
>>34003234The Zabanya attempts to defend itself, but without its bits and surrounded on three sides by hostile mobile suits, it simply didn't have a chance. You manage to slash off one of its arms while Lucina takes the other. However, it's Charlotte that get's the last shot in. Her Crimson Zulu's right arm glows blue as it impacts the Zabanya's chest, literally causing its entire torso to explode outward.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlOoIMd9524Behind you, you could hear the crowd wince as the Zabanya is utterly pulverized.BATTLE ENDSORCERER TEAM WINS"Congratulations!"

>>34003260I agree with this sentiment. It's easier to bring competitors down to our playing field than catching up with their Plavsky hax with nothing but more Balls.Besides which, we only got 3 GN Drives. We just swapped out the one from the Ball with the missile shield, to our current Def Ball.

>>34003727"So, Rebecca." You say, pointing to her GM Sniper in her hands."I was pretty surprised you went with a nonstandard rifle. A freaking railgun. Why swap it out with the regular beam weapon? You could've easily punched through my Chobham shield otherwise.""Well..." Rebecca shrugs. "Beams seem too easy to hard counter, as was evidenced by your Ball's I-Field and your anti-beam chaff. A kinetic weapon doesn't have to worry about any of those. The only concern is to fire a powerful enough shot that it wouldn't care that much about armor anyways.""So a railgun.""Yep." Rebecca nods and smiles. "Made it myself, actually. Capable of firing a slug at Mach 10, but that's at full power and usually not recommended.""Pretty nice." You grin. "And one more thing. I kinda noticed that you were the only person on your team that, well, no offense, actually fought like a sniper.""Yeah..." Rebecca sighs. "Seth and the others confuse beam spam with 'sniping'. Kinda frustrating, actually.""We'd have had a lot harder time if you had all stayed hidden." You continue."Yeah, that's what I suggested." Rebecca shakes her head. "But... that's what happens when your only knowledge of sniping comes from video games and action movies. And I'm just a lowly freshman. Who's going to listen to me?""True." You concede.>Interesting. Anyways, I gotta go.>It doesn't sound like you're happy with your team...>Other
>>34003944>It doesn't sound like you're happy with your team...you don't catch any fish if you don't go fishing
>>34003944>>It doesn't sound like you're happy with your team...
>>34003944>It doesn't sound like you're happy with your team...The Jackbowl needs more competitors!
>>34003944>It doesn't sound like you're happy with your team...
>>34003944>Mach 10>Speed of heatYea baby
>>34003944>Other"While it's not my place to say, if you're not having fun on your team you could always shoot for a different one."
>>34003944>>Interesting. Anyways, I gotta go.
>>34003944>Other"You could opt to begin small changes from within. But if you find yourself still unhappy with it somewhere down the line, our club's doors are always open."
>>34003944>It doesn't sound like you're happy with your team...As if there is any other option.
>>34003944I support this: >>34004014
>>34003944>It doesn't sound like you're happy withe your team...
> Short, bespectacled freshmen sniperDoes she also look like this?
>>34003944>>It doesn't sound like you're happy with your team...>>Other"This is not poaching. But if you ever have doubt with your team, we always glad to welcome you"
>>34004128>this is totally poaching
>>34004116NO! NO! NO! If she looks like that, we kick the bitch to the curb! We'll have none of that shitpile in THIS Quest!
>>34004142Anon. It's a picture. Nothing more. Christ.
>>34004116I was thinking Morgan with glasses
>>34003944"It doesn't sound like you're happy with your team." You frown."Oh, I'm sorry if I came off that way!" Rebecca blinks and then chuckles. "Even if we don't see eye to eye, they're still lovable goofs.""Plus when they graduate that means you'll be in charge of the team." You hypothesize."Bingo." Rebecca laughs. "But I'm honored that you offered. I'll be rooting for you in the school tournament!" With that, Rebecca gives you wave and heads off to join her team. They're still looking a bit glum that they've been knocked out of the top four, but all it is is just some hurt pride, nothing more."Getting awfully friendly with that sniper girl, there." Charlotte says as she steps up next to you. "I didn't think she was your type.""What, jealous?" You laugh. "Curious, more like." Charlotte laughs."Well, it is true that jack never passes up an opportunity to talk to a pretty girl. I think it's a trait he inherited from his father." Lucina grins."Really now..." Charlotte glares at you."Whoa, hey, don't take it the wrong way!" You blanch. "My dad was and still is a completely upstanding man!""Hm, sure." Charlotte grins. "Anyways, um, I know it's kinda last minute, but I was wondering if you guys, the whole team, I mean, would want to come over to my house this weekend.""You mean your castle?" You joke."Shut up.""I don't think 'castle' is the correct term..." Lucina frowns."Ah, you know what I mean." You say to Lucina before turning back to Charlotte. "What's the occasion?""Erm, that's a surprise." Charlotte says. "I mean, I haven't asked Karen or the others, yet, but I wanted to get your answer, first.">Of course I'm interested.>Sorry, I have other plans.>Other
>>34004156I don't think you understand how BAD the source of that image is.I fucking READ the LNs after hearing they got better eventually.They never got better.I'd argue they actually got worse.
>>34004167>>Of course I'm interested.What the hell do you think we'd choose?
>>34004167>Of course I'm interested.
>>34004167>>Of course I'm interested.
>>34004167>Of course I'm interested.Team bonding is important.
>>34004186>Of course I'm interested.
>>34004173Again. Picture. Don't let the character that's behind that picture color everything. It simply representation of looks for someone within the quest.>>34004167>If everyone else is down, yeah, sure.
>>34004167>>Of course I'm interested."Well, it is true that jack never passes up an opportunity to talk to a pretty girl. I think it's a trait he inherited from his father." Lucina grins>Lucina developed a sense of humor! Is that the occasion? Break out the soda pop everyone!
>>34004220> within the quest.To add here. Maybe, at that, since we'll most likely not see her again.
>>34004167>Of course I'm interested.>Is it to celebrate Lucina developing a sense of humor?
>>34004220I think you'd change your tune if he posted an image of a fusion danced Hitler and ebola.
>>34004227I always thought of Luciana as more in between normal and Tarin. Like how the children of immigrants are more American than their parents, she's a normal girl that inherited a cool and stoic nature from her mom.
>>34004167>"Well, it is true that jack never passes up an opportunity to talk to a pretty girl. I think it's a trait he inherited from his father." Lucina grins.I feel we could have added that as a way to get Lucina off guard that. "I never thought you considered yourself pretty if that's the case."
>>34004220For the record, >>34004256 is not me.Comparing SAO to Hitler is completely absurd. Hitler is nowhere near as bad as SAO.>>34004227Lucina always struck me as having a strange and unique sense of humor in Merc's other quests. The kind of person who makes comments SHE finds amusing solely for her own benefit, and just laughs internally.
>>34004267True, But I remember several times Lucina doesn't get a joke or something flew over her head (though a few were gundam so that is understandable) So her saying a joke now, I think will be surprising and to tease a friend
>>34004280Service (military or public sector (medicine, etc)) humor is...different.>>34004287See above.
>>34004280Refer to >>34004287But I can see your point on that and maybe makes sense or at least this version of her. I do want to catch her off guard on her own joke though
>>34004167"Of course I'm interested." You nod. "If you're going through all this trouble, it's gotta be important to you, right?""Ah, I guess it is." Charlotte nods. "Lucina?""I don't see why I wouldn't go." Lucina says. "Great! I'll go talk to the others, then!" Charlotte smiles as she dashes off to tell the rest of the team the news."I wonder what that was about?" You blink."Perhaps we'll find out." Lucina says."Yeah...." You nod. By this point, the hype from the battle had died down, and the gathered students were starting to leave for home. However, you see Kenneth, too. You're not sure why, but you have the feeling was glaring at you, hes expression saying that things weren't over. Not by a long shot.>And that's it for tonight! Next thread next week as always. Don't forget Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and PJ Witches on Sunday!
>>34004373Go eat a dick, Kenneth.Thanks for running Merc!
>>34004373Aww, no teasing Lucina about her new sense of Humor?
>>34004373>you see KennethStopped reading there. Pic related.Thanks for running Merc.
>>34004373>Not by a long shot.l8s.
