You ask for what has to be the hundredth time."Yes, you've asked that a hundred times already..." Rochelle sighs. "...sir.""Just making sure." You sigh.Currently, your girls were getting ready to secure a stolen Toha Heavy Industries weapon, which would cement their sponsorship deal for your company. (cont)
>>34517853Currently, your girls were slowly surrounding the target warehouse. Rochelle's team, consisting of herself, Sparky, and K-Zwolf, would hit the back door, while Cole's team, with Julie and Melissa, would hit the front. Morgan was taking position on a nearby comm tower to provide sniper support, while NEMO and Stig were standing by with the Hornet gunship and the SUV respectively.The general plan was to have the girl breach the warehouse and secure the cargo, while Stig comes in with the SUV to haul it out while the girls evacced. Meanwhile, the Captain would provide a distraction and draw off the Russians."Are you sure you want to do this?" You ask the Captain. "Those Russians probably have some serious hardware.""Which is exactly why I need to draw them away." The Captain says bluntly. "No offense, but the sort of heat they're packing with pulp your girls, no matter how well trained they are.">All right. Good luck, then.>I'm still tasking one of the teams to assist you.>Other
>>34517867>All right. Good luck, then.
>>34517867>>All right. Good luck, then.Our job is the mission and the captain knows what their doing.
>>34517867>>All right. Good luck, then.
>>34517867Hook up the captain to the harbringer system. She jumps into a backup body, and assumes direct control of her current one. That way she can't be killed
>>34517867>>All right. Good luck, then(It will at least distract the Russians a bit to a a different position besides the captain is trained for this).
>>34517867>>All right. Good luck, then."Keep in contact if things get too hot, Cap."
>>34517994anon, I REALLY want to believe that was a glitch...
>>34517994What have you done!?!Mod ban for you in 3, 2, 1....
>>34517994You dun goofed.
>>34517867Do we have anything in order to detect traps? Like mines which our SUV drove into when trying to retrieve NEMO? I mean we are going for a frontal assault but that doesn't mean we should go in reckless.Also I was searching up some individuals with lightning powers such as a Electro, and found a way for Cole to overcome her weakness to water here.Electromagnetic Manipulation (Formerly): An experimental procedure temporarily heightened his powers, allowing Electro to store and absorb a seemingly limitless amount of electricity. He could fly by generating a massive field of electricity which could propel him through the air. He also seemed to gain the power of magnetokinesis to a certain degree, allowing him to manipulate magnetic fields and move objects in a manner similar to that of Magneto, and could overcome his old weakness to water by using the electromagnetic fields around him to vaporize water before it could touch him. He was able to defeat Nate Grey by manipulating the bio-electric currents in the human brain to turn Nate's own psionic powers against him, and do the same to make Spider-Man beg. Presumably, had he further explored the implications of this power, he would have been able to control people's entire bodies this way as well, and might have been able to control machines in a similar way. He was also able to painfully paralyze anyone by overcharging their synapses' bio-electrical transmissions. However, Electro somehow seems to have lost these new abilities after he threw himself into the Hudson River, resulting in an explosion.http://marvel.wikia.com/Maxwell_Dillon_(Earth-616)
>>34518037>>34518070>>34518144Anybody have any feedback on my plan? >>34517959Every one seems to be distracted by the brony
>>34518180>>34518248>>34517959These are all good plans that should be put up for consideration. Also yes can we focus less on the brony and more on the quest, I think it was just a joke, which strangely got me to LOL for it being so random.
>>34518366Have to admit, it made me chuckle. It's like I'm back in 2012
>>34517867"All right, good luck then." You sigh as you cut the connection. You double check the position of all of your girls once again. Finally satisfied that they're in position. you decide to make the call."All right, Rochelle, Cole, move your teams in. Morgan, stay on overwatch."All three girls whisper their affirmations as they quietly begin to move in. Outside, there wasn't really any signs of serious opposition other than some plainclothes thugs trying (and failing pretty badly) to hide their weapons. There couldn't be any more than six total on the outside."Producer, would you like me to initiate an attack run?" NEMO asks.Well, an attack run from the Hornet would certainly soften up the enemy defenses, but that would pretty much let them know right away you have air support, and you knew that sometimes it was good to have a trump card ready and waiting.>Send the Hornet in now.>Keep it in reserve.>Other
>>34518555>Keep it in reserve.
>>34518555>>Keep it in reserve.
>>34518555>>Keep it in reserve.K-Zwolf has heavy assault set right?
>>34518555>Keep it in reserve.Stay in ambush position.
>>34518555>Keep it in reserve.until we get the enemies attention we should storm in otherwise if we use the Hornet now they will obviously stay inside to stay defended and obviously NEMO can't attack the entire place otherwise we risk destroying the merchandise.
>>34518624And I hope to god Sparky's Typhoon system is ready.
>>34518637I'm thinking when the Capt draws the Mercs, the hornet wipes them out, unless the Mercs are holding back some members in defense.
>>34518555"Stay in reserve, NEMO. We'll call you in when we need you." You say."Roger that!" NEMO chimes, not discouraged at all. "I'll be ready and waiting!""All right girls, move in." You command.>Take out the guards quick and loud.>Take out the guards slow and silent.>Other

So what does Melissa’s auged leg look like? Does her aug look like a boot, or does it resemble an actual foot with toes?
>>34518880She probably has both. A human looking leg and a combat-spec leg.
>>34518880>>34518908Why not install something that allows remote control access to the VTOL. Nobody would ever suspect the leg to be the controller!
>>34518953I honestly don't understand that sentence.
>>34518880It's a peg leg.
>>34519000We pirate idol group now.I don't have a pic for this.
>>34518701>Take out the guards slow and silent.We need to know when the Captain distracts them, which I'm not sure she has done yet.

>>34519123Good job!>>34519106Uh oh...
Can we use Morgan to translate if we ever get into a situation where negotiation is a viable option?
>>34519166We can use the 20 to negate the 1, or use Star Power.
>>34519193Morgan is already translating. She translate with bullet.>>34519224The 20 belongs to someone else, but using the Star Power is ideal because Morgan has a 19 as well.
>>34519224That's a good idea, supporting
>>34519247No, meaning convert the 20 into starpower and maintain our current starpower
>>34519100>To make things simpler, since this is a group roll that 20 will negate the 1.The three front guards are dispatched without issue. Cole rushes the first one and hits him square in the chest with an electrified punch. From the way his body smokes after she's done with him, you're sure that his heart was fried. The other two guards are handled with plain brute force, as Julie smashes her shield in the skull of the second guard while Melissa punches the ribcage of the third guard in.Meanwhile, the one guard on the roof is taken out with a clean headshot, courtesy of Morgan.In the rear, Rochelle and K-Zwolf working together take out the two guards stationed there. Sparky stays back, because nothing she's carrying is even remotely subtle. One broken neck and pulped torso later, and the rear entry is clear as well."Hey, how are we supposed to know when the Captain is going to draw away the mercs?" Rochelle asks."She said we'll know it when it happens." Cole says."So... when is it?" Julie wonders.That was odd. You haven't received any updates from the Captain, and she wasn't responding to your pings. Then again, she normally cut comms when she was being sneaky. But still...>Wait for the Captain to make her move.>No time to waste. Move in now.>Other

Nice, I have a reason to post this.
If Melissa does get to fight her nemesis, she needs to make the obligatory Princess Bride reference:>"My name is Melissa, you took my friends from me. Prepare to Die."

>>34519315"Just wait." You say.A minute or two later, you hear an explosion at the corner of the warehouse, causing a good chunk of it to go up in flames."All right, I got their attention." The Captain says flatly."What the hell did you shoot?!" You yell."Simple thermobaric warhead." The Captain says matter of factly. "Better move in now."You can hear lots of screaming and yelling as the guards try to organize in the face of the sudden attack. True to the Captain's words, if there was any time to attack, it was now, while they were confused."All teams move in!" You yell!"Breaching!" Rochelle yells as Sparky, cackling with laughter, blows the back door open with her rocket launcher."We're going in!" Cole says as Melissa uses her fist to literally rip the front door open.>Focus on Rochelle's team.>Focus on Cole's team.>Spot targets for Morgan.>Other

>>34517853Hi merc!>Spot targets for morgan.
>>34519675"Morgan, I'm going to help spot targets for you. Is that all right?" You ask."Any help is appreciated." Morgan says as she resights her gun. Fortunately for her, the rest of the team's optics and sensor systems were feeding targeting information to her. It was all a matter of interpreting the data and figuring out where best to shoot from here. Having a second head to sort the numbers would increase her effectiveness greatly. Below, you could see the fuzzy outlines of the other two teams as they moved through the warehouse, taking out a few more guards as they made their way to the cargo. However, from the sensors, you could see two possible hostiles up on the catwalks, as well as at least four more contacts hidden in a side room that looked to be an armory, no doubt gearing up.Farther back, you could see four very large blobs chasing after the Captain's signal. They were alarming close."You sure you don't need help?""I'm fine." The Captain says, though the gunfire and loud Russian cursing in the background suggested otherwise."Where do I shoot, sir?" Morgan asks.>Hit the guys on the catwalk.>Hit the guys in the armory.>Assist the Captain.>Other

>>34520759Funnily enough, I have it partially written up. By the way, do we have any details about Morgan's butt? It's related.

>>34520873It's probably boyish, or small.
>>34520873Boyish hips probably.
>>34520873I would imagine it's compact. It's there, but it's not "you could totally bounce quarters off of it" big.
>>34520905>>34520925Yes. I whole heartedly agree.

>>34520905>>34520969How old are these girls again? They are at least 18 right? Sometimes I forget. Cole acting like a kid at times sometimes I wonder.
>>34521025Yep, out of highschool at least (with the Tomb girls being the exception).
>>34520805Did we get a Multi kill?
>>34521025I assuma AT the highschool level.
>>34521025Between 16--19 at least but I'm also including Falynn and Himawari
>>34520624Morgan sights in her rifle and easily plugs the first guard with a headshot, sending his body toppling over the railing and into the warehouse floor below. Like a machine, Morgan shifts her aim to the second guard, taking him with solid torso shot. The second guard spasms and collapses to the catwalk.Meanwhile, Rochelle and Cole's teams have linked up in the center of the warehouse, forming a defensive circle around a single crago container."I think this is the one!" Rochelle yells as she glances over the serial number. "The number matches the one the Captain gave us!""Good job!" You grin. "How about how are the hostiles?""So far we're doing pretty good!" Rochelle yells. "But I think we have a least six, maybe more crawling around here! All the fighting is starting to interfere with our sensors!"You glance over at the Captain's direction, but see no sign of either her or the mercs.>Clear out the warehouse, just to be sure.>Send in Stig now and get the cargo out of there.>Other

In the event that one of our girls gets stuck in a coma or heavily injured, I think that we should use the Harbinger so that she can “live” for a few hours (using only volunteers, or K-Zwolf, of course), and find out what the hell happened to her before going back. Hell, maybe she could spend a few hours a day Direct Controlling someone and catch up with events.

>>34521169Well that would be an interesting story to tell to their parents. That their little girl's in a coma, but her mind is now controlling a robot dog that's armed to the teeth.
>>34521229Isn't Mad science wonderful? Then again, we also have one of the best doctors around, he can patch them back up quickly.
>>34521320Hell, he could patch them up while their mind is still trying to get used to their temporary body.
>>34521229Well, of the combat idols, the only ones who seem to have parents are Rochelle and maybe Sparky.
>>34520873>Pic obviously related
>>34521556Huh...now I feel like shit. I mean, Morgan has parents, but they're probably in Russia, and the Tomb girls don't really have any family members.Do the Tomb girls go out by themselves on their days off? You know, go out and make friends, or are their only friends at Clover?
>>34521085"All right, girls, keep a close eye out. Stig, get in there and we'll hook up the cargo so we can tow it out!"You hear Stig rev his engine to show his affirmation You see the marker for the SUV closing in on the warehouse. He reverses straight into the hole Melissa made and the idols get to work hitching it onto the SUV."Producer, bad news." Captain grunts. "I lost track of one of the mercs.""What?" You blink."I'm not sure when but before I knew it, I saw only three chasing me instead of four. I think one of them might be doubling back." The Captain says. "Just a heads up.Damnit, that wasn't good. >Keep the idols together and focus on getting the cargo out of there.>Send a team to keep an eye out for the merc.>Other

"Looks like the remaining guards have rallied around him, and he looks scary as fuck."You hop into Cole's POV and you can see a hulking figure in black armor stomping slowly but steadily towards the warehouse, his massive gauntlets and shoulders bristling with weapons. You could see a heavy MG and grenade launcher in his arms, as well as a massive axe slung on his back. And on his faceplate was painted the image of a snarling bear.Meanwhile, he was flanked by eight regular guards, who were lagging a bit behind, obviously intending to use their more heavily armored comrade as protection.You quickly switch over to Melissa's readouts, and notice her vitals were skyrocketing. Both Cole and Julie, suspecting what was happening, each put a hand on Melissa's shoulders to keep her down."I can handle it." Melissa snaps."Sure you can." Cole and Julie grunt at the same time.However, before the merc can get into range, he pauses and looks straight up."Oh dear, it looks like he's spotted me."

>>34522341>TWO STAR POWER POINTS USED>1 point remains!The Hornet's weapons whine as they rain rockets and bullets down on the enemy group. The unarmored guards are literally blasted apart, but the power armored Bear is a different story. With a massive burst of speed from his legs, the Bear jets forward, avoiding the worst of the strafing run while he fires his heavy MG at the Hornet. You see the craft take a few hits as it pulls away, smoke leaking from several parts.Meanwhile, Cole's team opens fire on the Bear. However, it really seems to bother him more than actually hurt him. However, they are successful in picking off the last of the guards, leaving the merc all alone."Damn!" Cole grunts. "Producer, if we lure into the warehouse, I think we can get him close enough where I can try and EMP him.""And I can get close. His armor might shrug off bullets, but I doubt it can shrug off this."

You know merc if you don't want to run quests, just say so, and not make increasingly evil crit fail systems just to kill off the cast.
also a 1 dosent mean they die instantly. if im not mistaken they just miss there shots.

>>34525864Well there's always the critical condition route, and the only way to pull her out of the coma is via mindmeld.
I assume it's Bear's resistance roll since otherwise he'd've asked anon to roll for Cole.
>>34525844Either a love of happenings or a fundamental misunderstanding of dice probability.In 6+ quests, he hasn't killed off cast members because that's not his QM style. Remember Falynn? No reason to make off-base accusations.

We really shouldn't be surprised by the frequency of Nat 1s in these group rolls. Remember that it's the best of 3 of 4d20 system. There's 35.8% chance that a at least one Nat 1 will occur for at least one of our idols. (Of course Nat 20s could occur as well, which would effectively cancel out the Nat 1)
>>34526014>(Of course Nat 20s could occur as well, which would effectively cancel out the Nat 1)And yet they never seem to manifest themselves. Atleast with the same frequency.
>>34525959No trigger word or killswtich indicate that Cole might not have been as much of a test subject as people are speculating her to be. Or it might just be that she /does/ have a trigger word, but we haven't heard it yet.
We'll never know what happened next.Like DBZ
>>34525841The Bear lumbers forward and slams powered fist into Julie's shield. The shield takes the brunt of the impact, but the sheer force of the blow sends her flying backwards before slamming into a cargo container. Julie is down, but not completely out, as she struggles to get back up to her feet. With a clear line of fire, Morgan takes her shot and scores a direct hit with her EMP round. The Bear's power armor is wreathed in blue electricity as electronics and other vital systems short out or shut down. The Bear then freezes like a statue, as his systems attempt to reboot. His greatest strength now became is greatest weakness, as by himself, he couldn't possibly move all that heavy armor. Which gives Melissa a chance to slam her augmented fist right into the Bear's faceplate, sending a loud CLANG resounding throughout the entire building. The Bear is actually lifted up from his feet comes crashing down in some wooden crates a few meters away."All right, we're out!" Rochelle yells.Cole moves to help Julie back up to her feet, while Melissa hesitates, looking at the door and back at the pile of broken crates where the Bear was lying.>Cut your losses and fall back now.>Try to finish off the Bear.>Other

>>34526151>Cut your losses and fall back nowWe don't know when his friends are coming back. We can barely handle 1 guy, let alone 4.
>>34526151>>Try to finish off the Bear.>>34526194You meant the grunt reinforcements, right?
>>34526151>Cut your losses and fall back now.I rather not be greedy and get somebody really fucked over.
>>34526250This guy will surely kill us our go after us if he knows are face. Even with all our crew we barely did nothing to him so it's best to take him out now before he comes prepared next time.
>>34526151>Cut your losses and fall back now.Because seriously, the dice are trying to fucking kill us tonight.
>>34526151>finish himCapt should have the others occupied
>>34526151>>Cut your losses and fall back now.Only a retard would put their lives on the dice.
>>34526151>Cut your losses and fall back for now.
Okay, so I'm stopping voting here so I can actually count it all...
>>34526333Do you wanna have more episodes with the dice trying to kill us? I don't want to deal with that shit so i say kill him
>>34526294I forgot about his power-armored buddies, actually. My reading comprehension isn't so good at this time of night.
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>34526151...
>>34526373The Dice Gods are fickle. They always wanna kill us by luring us with good rolls in the beginning.
>>34526380What the hell happened to the captain?
>>34526400That is a very good question.
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>34526388Go Melissa! Rolling...
>>34526400>>34526404Probably dealing with the 3 other guys.
>>34526400She's dead, Jim.
>>34526388And the armor is back online...
>>34526388Much as you'd like to stay behind and make sure the Bear is finished off once and for all, you knew you were running out of time. It wouldn't be long until police arrived to investigate the disturbance, and who know how quickly he'd be able to recover from the EMP."All right, Cole, get your team out of there!" You order."But-" Melissa starts."That's an order!" You say sternly. "Everybody fall back!"Already, you can see the broken crates shifting and moving. It looks like the Bear had gotten his armor working again and was on the move. "Come on!" Cole grunts has he half drags Melissa back. "I need some help carrying Julie's fat ass out of here!""HEY! I can still walk on my own!" Julie yells."Yeah, well we gotta be RUNNING!" Cole counters.Melissa sighs and helps Cole pick up Julie and they both carry her out as fast as their legs can take them. NEMO swoops down for another strafing run to discourage pursuitFinally, your idols manage to make it the rendezvous point a few blocks away. You would only stop here long enough to catch your breath and link up with the Captain before heading back to the office. Cole, Sparky, Morgan, and K-Zwolf set up a defensive perimeter while Rochelle and Stig tend to Julie's wounds. They weren't serious, but she had a couple of broken ribs and some nasty bruising. Certainly nothing to laugh at.Meanwhile, Melissa just sits at one of the benches, just leaning back and looking up at the sky. You knew she was probably bummed not being able to take out her childhood nemesis.>Talk to Melissa.>Leave her alone for now.>Other
>>34526423She can't be dead she must be hiding in places where big people like those mercs can't.
>>34526500>>Talk to Melissa.Good job keeping your cool.
>>34526500>>Talk to Melissa.Storytime about Producer's service that could relate to the situation?
>>34526500>>Talk to Melissa.>She can punch us if she's angry at us
So is it time to make that custom man-portable M2 Browning for Melissa?
>>34526500>Talk to Melissa.
>>34526500>sit next to hershow her we'll be there for her
>>34526500>>Talk to Melissa.Ya done good, kid.
>>34526500>Talk to Melissa.>Storytime or letting her bring her frustrations out on us
>>34526500>>Talk to Melissa.
>>34526553inb4 "roll dice to sit down" and then we roll a 1 and massively fuck up.
>>34526500Tslk to mellisaOtherSpeak about your revenge while in the army and how it cost you an injury and your comraded life or something that willsend home to mellisa that if we had stayed their longer that her new friends would be killed. Also tell her she will get him next time.
>>34526500>>Leave her alone for now.We can talk to her once we are back home.
>>34526571Relatable story? That sounds dandy. I go with this.>>34526500
>>34526630Lets do it later when we ride home or get her alone.
>>34526500You walk up and take a seat next to Melissa."Hey," You say, turning to your idol, "how are you feeling?""I don't know..." Melissa sighed as she still stared at the sky. The Hornet lazily orbited high above. "I mean, I know I should be really pissed but... I dunno. I just feel really bummed.""That you couldn't finish off the Bear?" You ask."I guess." Melissa frowned. "But it's more than that. I mean when I saw him again, I realized something...""What?" You ask."He was just as scary as I remembered him." Melissa sniffs.It's then that you notice her hands, even her augmetic one, were shaking uncontrollably.>It's all right be scared...>Headpat>Hugs>Other
I wonder didn't we do to Bear what he did to Melissa, by killing all his comrades and leaving him lying on some crushed crates?
>>34526571Does mellisa even care anymore. I think what her new purpose would be is to protect her friends(who are now like her family)
>>34526677>Hugs>>34526680Quite...Karmic, don't you agree?
>>34526677>>Hugs>>Other>StorytimeMaybe our own fears. Insecurities?
>>34526677>It's all right to be scared...>Headpat
>>34526677>HugsYou are not alone anymore, we can take him.Also, you getting Captain training. Good luck.
>>34526691Exactly, was wondering if anyone noticed.
>>34526677>Hugs AND HEADPATS and then gentle reassuring words
>>34526680Major point needed is some limb loss or equally traumatic loss....I hope the EMP blast permanently fried his toys.
>>34526677It's all right be scared...>Headpat>HugsOtherstorytimefear is an illusion
>>34526677This >>34526680 + storytiem
>>34526677>>It's all right be scared...>>Hugs>A story from your time at the service.
>>34526677>OtherFear is the mindkiller...
>>34526677That's why we have friends. A girl that can shoot electricity, an explosives expert, a living legend, a marksmen, and a girl that is as tough as iron.He's tough but not invincible. Whether it'll be bullets, rail guns, explosives, shaped charges, air strikes, or a simple punch in the face. We'll figure it out.
I desperately want to adopt all of our parent less idols.
>>34526677Storytime of this>>34526571
>>34526751>>34526677Thats why we have friends
>>34526756Agreed. Get all the hassle out of the way, especially with Cole's vague ownership.
>>34526677>>It's all right be scared...>>Hugs>A Story of Vietnam II? Something involving fighting guerrillas, the dark forest night in which people her age can come in and slit throats at night, but to keep pressing on.Or something like that
>>34526756Who's the mother figure?Jenner, Lillith, or....us?
>>34526677Tell her we are her new family(and just adopt her and the tomb girls)
>>34526677>>It's all right be scared...>>Headpat>>HugsAll of the above. This is /tg/, where hugs, headpats, and storytimes are always in high demand.
>>34526809Captain is their father figureWE ARE THE MOTHER FIGURE
>>34526830AGREEDWAIFU WAR OVER!
>>34526680not really we only killed some gang bangers as far as I read none of the mercs died
Now I really wished Decu managed to make a Melissa and Producer picture during his draw thread. I should try again next time.
>>34526809I would say Lilith simply because being a councilor probably comes off as more motherly.
>>34526756I don't mean to upset the apple cart, but doesn't that seem a little /too/ touchy? I mean these girls have had rough lives, yeah, but this is a business we're running, not a fucking orphanage. Aside from that, adoption is such a massive step in interpersonal relationships that I think that we'd be worse off for doing it.
>>34526889we are not the boss we are mid level
>>34526889pretty much thisthough the only one we should adopt would be Cole so we can have legal protection if some Corps decide the take her in for testing
>>34526889You have a point but she is shaking, I would normally go for headpats but is afraid. I think Producer would do this. I may be projecting but if a 16-19 year old girl is deathly afraid....I don't know, help her? I don't know how to convey this
>>34526889Let's be honest, this is a Daughteru Simulation quest at heart.
>>34526889I did not mean it in character, I should have been clearer about it.Cole is a bit different however and I would support adopting her in character.
>>34526909Seeing as Cole is most likely a clone, genetic ownership would fall under Vahlen, seeing as it's her genes and all. Whether or not genetic ownership translates into legal guardian status seems like something the courts could sort out, but, in my mind, makes logical sense.
>>34523533I'm way late at answering but Sparky has the backpack Typhoon, which doesn't need augs.
>>34526948the courts don't have to know and probably don't care about her past and Vahlen would probably agree that we would make the better guardian
>>34526923You tell her you did the right thing, put a coat around her shoulders to make her know the world hasn't ended yet, and tell her you're always available if she wants to talk.The key here is to think less like a dad and more like a Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor.
>>34526948Family law is the worst law.In the United States, she would probably meet most state's criteria for emancipation and the concept of legal guardians would not apply to her.Besides, she'd probably turn 18 while the court proceedings are still taking place. Family courts are not very fast.
>>34526948That's if clones are seen as "People" in the first place and not as property...
>>34526977I guess your right but I on the other hand the Producer likes to think of himself as their dad/parent/guardian
>>3452703113th amendment and the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th amendment are probably still intact.
>>34527031Look, it's clear as day that her genome was subject to extensive modifications before she was born, and as such probably wouldn't count as Vahlen's clone under any sort of law. Sure Vahlen's genes provided the template, but unless she has secret lightening powers we don't know about, its safe to assume there were some MAJOR alterations to said template. In biological terms, they are sisters, as they simply aren't genetically identical.
>>34526677"It's all right to be scared." You say, wrapping your arms around Melissa and bringing her in close for a hug. Melissa buries her face in your chest and actually starts crying."I was so SCARED!" She sobs."It's all right." You say, trying to calm her down as she wraps her arms around you. "Everybody's scared at some point, Melissa, and anybody that says otherwise is a goddamn liar.""Even you?" She asks."Especially me." You chuckle. "I wasn't always the brave, charming Producer you see now. I used to a raw recruit, and I had to face all sorts of scary shit.""Like what?" Melissa asks."Well, for example, in Vietnam II, I had to fight kids even younger than you are." You grimace. "Nasty things, too. A lot of them were pumped up with steroids and all sorts of illegal augs, too. Barely even recognizable as human, much less children. And let's not even start talking about the tunnels...""All right, I get it." Melissa chuckles a bit. "I feel a little better now.""That's more like it." You grin, and then finally break the hug when you notice more than a few of your idols (who will not be named) glaring jealousy at the both of you. "Don't be so bummed, though. I have the ugly feeling that won't be the last time we cross paths with the Bear.""Yeah. I'll be ready next time." Melissa nods.(cont)
>>34527122"Cute moment." You hear the Captain's voice say."Captain!" You turn around, and wince. The Captain had certainly seen better days. Her body was all scratched and scorched, and she was also missing an arm."Oh, don't worry. I took it off on purpose." The Captain says, wiggling her empty shoulder. "I have a pretty powerful bomb installed in my left arm. Makes for a very nice distraction.""I'm sure." You sigh. Well, mission accomplished. You got the goods, and everybody got away more or less fine. You've pretty much got the THI sponsorship in the bag, though you have a feeling you've got some pissed off Russians gunning for you now.Well, can't make friends without making some enemies too, right?>And that's all for tonight! As always, next thread next week. Don't forget PJ Witches on Sunday! We'll also be having a bonus thread of Gundam Build Fighters on Monday afternoon, so keep an eye out for that, too!
>>34527134Thanks for the thread, I feel satisfied with the ending>and then finally break the hug when you notice more than a few of your idols (who will not be named) glaring jealousy at the both of you.Oh don't play us with this Merc. WE both know it was all our combat idols
>>34527134Well it looks like Ivan is going to be gunning for our head, just a couple of days before Deniable Assets Quest comes back too.
>>34527134Thanks for running!Our idols crave producers affection!
>>34527122>You grin, and then finally break the hug when you notice more than a few of your idols (who will not be named) glaring jealousy at the both of you"Why does Producer never hug me?"
>34527122>then finally break the hug when you notice more than a few of your idols (who will not be named) glaring jealousy at the both of you.They jelly.
>>34527173>then finally break the hug when you notice more than a few of your idols (who will not be named) glaring jealousy at the both of you
>>34527134Thanks for the sweet thread Merc, next time we must start liberally applying hugs to our idols.
>>34527173Because headpats are for a job well done. Hugs are for consoling and reunions.Actually the only Idol I don't imagine glaring is Sparky. I can picture Morgan glaring a bit.
>>34527187Not the post I wanted to quote. Whatever. Softest.
>>34527134"That's more like it." You grin, and then finally break the hug when you notice more than a few of your idols (who will not be named) glaring jealousy at the both of you. "Don't be so bummed, though. I have the ugly feeling that won't be the last time we cross paths with the Bear."We need names though Merc. TELL US!
>>34527218All of them mate. Just in varying degrees.
>>34527236>Swimming in absolute bliss tierMelissa>[INTERNALLY SCREAMING] tierJulie>Can pinpoint the exact moment her heart breaks tierRochelle and Cole>Somewhat Indifferent tierMorgan and The Captain>Gives no fucks tierKZ-Wolf, and NEMO
>>34527298Where is Sparky.I think Morgan will be inbetween Internally screaming and indifference
>>34527320Probably gives no fucks.After all, she has explosives and Edwin.
>>34527348Yeah the only time we interacted with her is her intro, and dressing her down for the wall.
>>34527367I honestly wish she was there for the Wake Up incident, that would've been utterly hilarious.
>>34527405I had enough fun as it was with that.Producer would have gotten a chest full of shranel or tear gas or somethign
