You'd be lying if you said that you weren't excited and nervous at the same time. Next to you, fellow tournament entrant and friendly rival Charlotte stood impatiently, looking at her phone's clock."They're late." She grumbled. "We'll miss the flight.""I'm sure they're on their way." You chuckled.Since finding transport as well as room and board was costly, your parents and most of your friends weren't coming with you, and would only arrive if either of you made it to the finals. However, the Gunpla Commission in charge of the World Tournament paid for all expenses for fighters, and since it assumed a fighter/builder team, each entrant got two tickets. Between both you and Charlotte, you had two extra tickets to give any of your friends. In the end, you both decided to bring...>Nominate 2 friends to tag along!
>>34825450>Karen and Jake
>>34825450Lucina and Mac
>>34825450Lucina and Jake
>>34825450Lucina and Amy.
>>34825450>Nominate 2 friends to tag along!>Lucina>HollyWhat? She's been our primary builder after all.
>>34825450LucinaMacNo Holly? She's a part of this success as the rest of the team.
>>34825450>Holly & Karen
>>34825515...You're right.Holly needs to be here.>>34825450Holly and Karen.One for building, one for tactics.
>>34825527I never said you couldn't bring Holly...
>>34825450>Lucina>HollySomeone needs to take care of our balls.
>>34825450>Holly>KarenOur sister and part-time builder and Team President that gave us this chance.
>>34825515>>34825543No Balls, no life...
>>34825504>>34825450Switching to Lucina + Holly
>>34825515>>34825527It is time we find our own skill as a builder and stop relying on our little sister. Let us find our own building path.
>>34825515Maybe the loli is in the bag
>>34825450Lucina and Holly.I'm picking Holly because just to see her squeal we took down a high tier gundam with just balls
Did anybody save the Jack drawing anon posted in the last thread or two?
>>34825450I think Jack will pick Holly, no idea who will Charlotte pick.
>>34825545>>34825572Holly deserves to go though.Besides, I'm hoping that she encounters the Gyan Princess, who should be a middle schooler by now.
>>34825450Lucina & Mac
>>34825450Okay, so Lucina seems to be lock. So time to narrow things down! For the second tag along, we'll be picking from the next most suggested!>Holly>Mac>Karen>Jake
Hey, random question: How big are the Balls? Because the OP image shows them as being as big as they are in canon, but they don't seem to obstruct us when docked nearly as much as they I'd expect if they were. I'm imagining them as being proportionally more basketball sized compared to the Jester.
>>34825710Holly should have been the lock but eh.>Holly
>>34825710HOLLY, she should go just to see Balls compete and kick ass internationally.>captcha 42
>>34825710>HollyShe has given us great upgrades for the Jester she'll probably be a big help in helping us keeping an edge in battle.
.......oh yeah, if we pull the Ballcrusher again>IN SOVIET RUSSIA, BALL CRUSH YOU!
>>34825710>MacMale siblings shall henceforth receive priority over ladies of ill repute.
>>34825710>MacBros before hos. In this case, sis
>>34825710HollyThis should have been the obvious picAnd why do you fags hate our best bro Mac so much?
>voting Lucina over Mac10/10 guysAt least Holly's winning now and not Karen.
>>34825845I like him fine. What I want to know is why people like Luciana so much. I am thoroughly unimpressed by her.
>>34825890Waifu bait and absolutely nothing more.It should have been us, mac, and holly
We've ignored mac for pretty much the entire quest. Hell, he hasn't been in a single fight!
>>34825890Last time Lucinafags didn't pick Lucina for every choice, it bit them in the ass.So they're being a little too obsessed this time, so it can't happen again.Can't really blame them.
>>34825890I like Lucina
>>34825890Karen or Mac would have been better than lucina
This is fun.We obviously brought Holly.That means Char brought Luciana.The rivals are staying together.
>>34825710Finally, Lucina arrives with Holly in tow."Yo, what took you so long?" Charlotte calls out."Ah, well, apparently, airport security thought that I was the type of person that would 'cause trouble'." Lucina sighs. "So it took extra time for them to search all my bags.""You should've seen the look she gave them when they suggested a strip search." Holly snickered. "Never saw armed uniformed guys backpedal so fast!""We haven't even left the airport and you two are already causing trouble..." You sigh. "ATTENTION. FLIGHT 272 IS NOW BOARDING. I REPEAT, FLIGHT 272 IS NOW BOARDING." The intercom buzzes."Come on, that's our flight!" You quickly usher the girls to the boarding deck. There, you turn in your tickets and are led to the front of the plane. First Class. The Gunpla Commission certainly knew how to take care of its fighters."Whoaaaa!" Holly squeals as she ogles at the pure luxury of the compartment. "Look at all this SPACE!""So, where are you gonna sit?" Charlotte asks.You pause, and suddenly get the feeling that you were just asked a very dangerous question.>Charlotte>Lucina>Holly
>>34825959Don't worry, he's holding down the fort with everyone while we're gone. What's the worst that could happen?
>>34825959Ands that's just sad.
>>34825959I'm kinda hoping that there'd be one breather thread where Mac, Karen and Amy go up in a friendly match against the Olympians.While basically pulling off the Domon, Milliardo and Puru trio routine in Dynasty Warriors Gundam.
>>34826019>>HollyI would say Lucina but play it safe
>>34826019>HollyGOTTA TALK BALLS. Only safe answer.
>>34826019HollyTalk about balls.
>world tournaments almost always have exclusive things>that feel when we get Holly a World Tournament 2014 edition Ball kitit's just a single ball with some decal stickers with a shiny gold plastic casing for the "body" because that shit's always phoned in.
>>34826019"Window seat, obviously. I like heights."
>>34826019>HollyTime to dote on the little sister
>>34826019 >>Charlotte"You know if you wanted to sit next to me, all you had to do was say so~"Tease the char.
>>34826019>>CharlotteCome at me, bros.
>>34826019>HollyGotta keep tabs on her, see that she doesn't fiddle around the luxurious stuff and make sure that she isn't actually prone to airsickness or some such.
>>34826019Holly.Ignore waifus. Acquire Imouto.
>>34825965>Last time Lucinafags didn't pick Lucina for every choice, it bit them in the ass.When was that?I like Amy but mostly because Ruby is cute as a button.
>>34826019HollyI want these waifufags blown out and gone
>>34826146Valkyrian Mercs 2.It was a massive fucking trainwreck for everyone involved.
>>34826146The Quest That Shall Not Be Named.I've already said too much.
>>34826019>HollyPicking either one is DANGEROUS. Stay neutral for now.
>>34826173SPEAK NOT IT'S NAME!
>>34826163Because anti-waifufagging WORKED SO WELL in VMQ2 AM I RIGHT?
>>34826173>that one threadYou know the one.
>>34826020Mother Base gets destroyed and we get played like a damn fiddle.
>>34826019>"You should've seen the look she gave them when they suggested a strip search." Holly snickered. "Never saw armed uniformed guys backpedal so fast!"I think its things like this that make me dislike Luciana. So tough. Don' need no man.
World thorny time huh?Guess we have maybe until the end of October to enjoy the quest then.Need to finish my Gouf ASAP. Been putting that off for way too long.
>>34826208>>34826213YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT IS MENTIONED BY NAME?!
>mfw lucina didn't even get a single vote.The waifu wars are already over
>>34826236I find it humorous. Besides that is a common skill most girls have if someone suggested that.
>>34826173Ah. The more I hear about that one the more I dislike it. Mostly because its apparently shitty character keep showing up in the Merc quests I actually read.
>>34826274Nah, Jack knows the situation so he's picking neutral ground.
>>34826274Your suffering pleases me. Now you can go try and ruin a different quest.
>>34826274There were never any waifu wars, the choice was set in stone from the first thread.
>>34826305Chars my waifu. Try again.
>>34826279There was nothing wrong with the characters. The problem is thus. In VMQ1 there were only really ever two candidates for waifu, and the decision occurred organically. Then VMQ2 gave us a whole collection of waifus to choose from, waifuwars ensued, Merc got sick of them and took drastic measures. The source of butthurt was telling people that "you didn't spend enough time with Lucina to get her" because they were busy playing the MC as a nice guy who's worried about his teammates.
>>34826123"Jack Foulke was a man who could have been an onii-san to me!"
>>34826357and Faylnn had the most problems.
>>34826236Considering how even RL SF and MoH winners are subjected to indignities by flat footed wannabes in the TSA, this pisses me off.But besides the point, let's mind the imouto.
>>34826385Thus enhancing the butthurt from people who considered her useless and annoying, but didn't play Lucas that way because it would be ooc.
>>34826357Kay. I guess I just don't care for character from previous quest showing up in completely different ones, because old players still have lingering attachments? Idol Management quest seems really bad about that.
>>34826481Merc constantly recycles character concepts, dude. Lucina herself was just the next generation of Tarin from VMQ1.
>>34826504One or the other is a very much constant concept.
>>34826019You decide to take the safe option, opting not to step on that particular minefield."I'll sit next to Holly." You say. Both Charlotte and Lucina shrug and take their seats on the row in front of you. You play a quick game of rock paper scissors to decide who gets the window seat, which you win quite handily."No fair! Two out of three!" Holly pouts."Sorry, but we can't keep blocking the aisle." You laugh, pointing at the next wave of boarding passengers. You brush past Holly and sit down in your rightfully won seat."Meanie.""Don't be such a sore loser."After a few more minutes, all the passengers are boarded, all those boring safety demonstrations are demonstrated, and the plane finally begins moving, getting ready to take off. You see how anxious Holly is and remember that this is actually her first time flying. "Scared?" You ask."O-o-o-of course not!" Holly stammers."Don't worry, flying is the safest way to travel." You reassure her. "Assuming Wing Gundam doesn't suddenly fall out of the sky and beam saber the plane in half.""That's not helping." Holly whines.Finally, the plane accelerates as the plane prepares to take off. Holly squeaks and closes her eyes, but after a few seconds the shaking stops as the plane finally lifts off from the ground and into the air."Hey... this is actually kinda cool." Holly says as she looks out the window, with a rather nice view of the city and ocean below."See? Nothing to be scared of." You grin.Now all that's left is to figure out what to do in the ten hours it will take to reach Japan.>Get some sleep. You're going to need it.>Watch an in flight movie or something.>Talk with Holly about something.>Other
>>34826682>>Watch an in flight movie or something.Awakening of the Trailblazer, just so we can troll ourselves.
>>34826682>Talk with Holly about BALLS.
>>34826682>ten hoursDamn, we have gotten through most of Gundam Seed with Lucina in that much time>OtherWork on our Jester
>>34826682>Talk with Holly about something.
>>34826737Shit, we should have sat next to Lucina so we could force her to watch Destiny. Well, missed opportunities.
>>34826682>>Get some sleep. You're going to need it.
>>34825675Here's the one with patches on the Jacket.
>>34826682>Talk with Holly about something.What's been going on in her life, anyway? We haven't asked how school is going for her recently. She been having fun?
>>34826682>Talk with Holly about how we can Upgrade the Jester.
>>34826754She could have not escaped from the horror. ''Well we can set up another time for that though.
>>34826682>>Watch an in flight movie or something.Either the second season of 00, or Awakening of the Trailblazer
>>34826774"I DON'T APPROVE OF ANY BOYFRIENDS!!!"
>>34826823"I AM THE BOYFRIENDS!!!"
>>34826682>Talk with Holly about something."Interested in meeting anyone in person during the World Tourney? How's school? Anyone still bothering you about those Balls? "She could just mention to offhand that a couple of them helped manage to take down a Neo Zeong and a Unicorn Gundam.
>>34826682>Watch an in flight movie or somethingWe should watch the Macross Frontier compilation movies.I know, it's not gundam so it's sacrilege in this universe, but they're pretty good and we don't wanna be a Gundam only scrub, do we?
>>34826682"So, Holly, how have things at school begin going?" You ask."Ah, pretty well." Holly nods. "Everybody there's nice. A few of them are also into Gunpla too, and we were planning on making or joining a club when we go to high school.""Sounds great." You smile. "Attracting any attention from boys?" "What kind of question is that?" Holly looks at you suspiciously."Oh, no reason.""You're going to beat them up if I tell, aren't you?" "So there ARE boys after you!" You scowl."I never said anything!" Holly shakes her head rapidly."Fine. Different subject." You grunt. "Excited about the tournament?""It sounds kinda cool. It's also a really great way to meet other Gunpla builders!" Holly smiles. "If I can, I wanna meet Mao Yasaka! He won the Japanese finals and they say he's the second best builder in the world!""Should've figured." You laugh. "Well, hopefully me and my Balls can beat him if we ever face him.""Yeah! I saw when you used them to totally crush that Unicorn! It was AWESOME!" Holly giggles. "I wanna see everybody's faces when Balls win the championship!""Well hey, let's not get ahead of ourselves here, that's still a long ways off." You chuckle."Yeah, well, your Jester can still use some improvements." Holly's head bobs."Really now?" You raise an eyebrow. "What are you proposing?""I have a few ideas!">BALL RACK EXTENSION: Increases the number of Balls the Jester can carry from 2 to 4.>PLAVSKY SCANNER: A scanning device that can detect the movements of Plavsky particles, giving a brief advance warning of attacks.>REVOLVING LAUNCHER: An under barrel rifle attachment that can launch various munitions, such as armor piercing grenades, buckshot, flamethrower, and a beam bayonet projector.
>>34826682Two out of three is tournament standard for Rock, Paper, Scissors, actually.
>>34827229>BALL RACK EXTENSION: Increases the number of Balls the Jester can carry from 2 to 4.
>>34827229>>BALL RACK EXTENSION: Increases the number of Balls the Jester can carry from 2 to 4.YES YES YES
>>34827229>BALL RACK EXTENSION
>>34827229>BALL RACK EXTENSION: Increases the number of Balls the Jester can carry from 2 to 4.It's about time we picked this up.
>>34827229>why not everything?
>>34827229>>BALL RACK EXTENSION: Increases the number of Balls the Jester can carry from 2 to 4.YES!
>>34827229>BALL RACK EXTENSION: Increases the number of Balls the Jester can carry from 2 to 4.It's a poor juggler that can only handle two balls at once.
>>34827229>BALL RACK EXTENSION: Increases the number of Balls the Jester can carry from 2 to 4.Hell yeah!
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>34827229I want the Ball Rack Extension, but a warning for Plavsky hax ahead of time could be really useful. Eh, I'll roll for it.
>>34827229>>34827294Plavsky Scanner it is, then.
So guys... How are we even going to move if we have all 4 docked?
>>34827323We take them out in battle.But we must invest more money on GN Drive to make it truly spectacular
>>34827229>BALL RACK EXTENSIONWe all know we're getting this
>>34827323They have their own engines.So 4 engines our engine = GOTTA GO FAST
>>34827323I imagine we'll have the other two balls slightly higher up and over from the current ones. Sort of a v-4 backpack.When we call them back with the magnets, we essentially become an immobile 360 gun platform which could be handy if we ever have to do any single vs multi things.
>>34827323Well, I've been imagining the Balls as being around half the size they should be. And mounted on racks behind the shoulders, not directly on them. Together with all the parts hanging off of them it gives them a more elongated shape. So I'm thinking the Jester will look something like pic related in terms of general silhouette.
>>34827398Kinda like an M16 halftrack with quad M2 Brownings?
>>34827429Alternatively, maybe the Form 5 version of Sefer Rasiel would be more fitting. Both of those are just my image of it, though.
>>34827456This looks like a better mounting.The top side can house the offense oriented Balls so it can still shoot over the shoulder and also behind the Jesta, while the lower part can house the D-Ball plus one other support or defensive oriented Ball.
>>34827229>>BALL RACK EXTENSIONNever enough Balls, the Jesta Juggler should sport wings binders just to mount them.
>>34827345Add another GN Drive and people think that the Juggler is really a 00 in disguise
>>34827229"The Ball Rack Extension sounds good." You say."Heh, I thought you'd go for that." Holly cracks a grin. "Erm, it might take me a few days to get the parts and a couple more to put it all together. You probably won't be getting it until after the prelims. I'll do my best.""Why so long?" You raise an eyebrow."Well, first of all, I don't have access to all my normal tools and materials, which means I'll have to get them in Japan." Holly explains. "And then I have to actually build the entire rig from scratch.""Can't you just modify the existing one?" You blink."You can do it the lazy way, or the RIGHT way." Holly grunts. "Doing it the lazy way means the whole damn thing could fall apart on you the moment it's put under any serious stress! All because you can't wait a few stupid days!">You're right, I can wait.>I need it now!>Other
>>34827611>You're right, I can wait.In Holly we trust.
>>34827611>You're right, I can wait.
>>34827611>You're right, I can wait.We're gonna need a quality build if we want to make it anywhere in the championship.
>>34827611>>You're right, I can wait.
Do we have the beam sabers in the balls that I suggested after Holly beat an MS with a ball that one?
>>34827611>>You're right, I can wait.>Can we tweak the Balls AI in the meantime?
>>34827611>OtherWhat if I told you that there would be a reward if you got it done in time for the preliminaries?
>>34827611>not bringing your tools or having tools available from the organizersWait I guessWe need to cook up our own upgrade at some point.
>>34827611>>You're right, I can wait.Fortunately tools and stuff are cheaper in Japan (curse you shipping costs and retail markups)
>>34827611>You're right, I can wait.Trust the imouto's judgment.
>>34827676What the fuck? How did that happen?
>>34827640>>34827685How about improving the AI?Make it so that we have Haros piloting our Balls.Maybe some minor communications. When we sent our balls to face the Guntank, we lost contact so having a better response system is better>
>>34827611>You're right, I can wait.>Other"Easy, Holly, easy. I was just asking for clarification, I wasn't challenging you. I get it, proper builds are important, and I'm really grateful that you're so willing to help me with them. The Jester wouldn't be nearly as impressive a gunpla without you. Thank you, Holly.
>>34827605This is a good point. We SHOULD try and go up to twin drives on all our stuff, if we can find the cash.Imagine the power of TEN GN Drives to fuel Trans-Am with.>>34827611>You're right, I can wait.Patience, my young padawan.
>>34827685Better Communication System/AI with our balls.We might need that since we're carrying a lot more of them now and will be much harder to keep track.Also the whole Gunpla has souls in them so I imagine our Balls having souls will one day talk due to AI and we have coordinate our tactics
>>34827762First we need GN drives on the other balls.
>>34827762>start match in trans am>2 hours later, still have juice left>literally tap into the speed force
>>34827611"Don't worry, I was just asking." You chuckle. "I can wait.""Yeah, yeah." Holly yawns. "Anyways, I'm beat. I'm gonna take a little.. nap..."And just like that Holly dozes off. You just smile and cover her with a blanket.>Get some sleep, too.>Talk with Charlotte and Lucina.>Watch an in flight movie.>Other
>>34827822>Talk with Charlotte and Lucina.
>>34827822>Talk with Charlotte and Lucina.Character development!
>>34827822>>Talk with Charlotte and Lucina.>Watch Seed Destiny with Lucina.
>>34827822>>Talk with Charlotte and Lucina.
>>34827822>>Watch an in flight movie.Watch SEED Destiny with Charlotte and Lucina, MST3K the whole shit.
>>34827822Inflight movie then sleep.It's like an 8 hour flight from La to japan land I think. We have time for a quick film then a rest. We'll need it.
>>348278948 hours? Its like 13 hours from NY to Beijing. Is the pacific really that small?
>>34827793>Jack's face when>>34827822>Talk with Charlotte and Lucina.>Watch an in flight movie.SEED DESTINY MARATHON!
>>34827894>>34827922It's 11 hours 28 minutes according to travelmath.com.
>>34827857>>34827888>>34827929>Lucina's face when
Writefag here, while waiting for Merc to post an update, second story is up on pastebin...http://pastebin.com/zKaNzvTeAlso will be heading out to the Gunpla Expo later today, there's an MG Acguy I'm looking to get...
>>34828043Tears of suffering and cries of "WHYYYYY"Not from Shinn Asuka, but from Lucina
>>34827822"So, you two girls excited for the tournament?" You ask, leaning in from the gap between their seats."Damn right!" Charlotte grins. "Fighting against the best of the best in whole damn world! Kinda sucks that Sei Iori won't be competing this year, but a lot of the big names are still around.""And while I'm just going to have to watch from the sidelines, it's still a rare opportunity." Lucina smiles. "I also brought my Exia, in case you need a backup.""Wow, thanks." You blink. "Though I hope I won't need to use it.""That's understandable." Lucina chuckles."Hey, we've still got 8 or 9 hours till we land." You grin deviously as you pull out your laptop. "That should be enough time to watch the entirety of SEED Destiny.""Oh, well that will be interesting!" Lucina nods.Charlotte gives you a terrified look."What are you thinking?!?!" Charlotte hisses."Hey, it's something to pass the time." You laugh as you hit the play key.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPd_E2Q4KnU"NOOOOOOOO!" Charlotte wails.Unfortunately for her, thousands of feet in the air, where all the nearby passengers are asleep or too drunk to care, nobody can hear you scream.---When the plane finally lands, things become kind of a blur. You vaguely remember disembarking from the plane, where you're picked up by a chartered taxi and taken straight to the special dorms set aside for the tournament fighters. You see quite a few other fighters arriving, but you're too damn fatigued to really try and meet or figure out who they are. You and Holly are lead to your room, where you just collapse into bed and pass out.(cont)
>>34828142"Jack. Wake up, Jack." Holly pokes you in the cheek."W-what?" You blink rapidly as you try to remember who and where you are. "What happened?""You been asleep for almost twelve hours." Holly says, chewing on some Pocky. "It's already like, 4pm local time? We're supposed to be going to that pre-tournament party tonight."Oh yeah, you nearly forgot about that.>Guess I should get ready for that, shouldn't I?>Eh, maybe I'll ditch.>Other
>>34828159>>Guess I should get ready for that, shouldn't I?mingling, free food, etc.
>>34828159>Let us go to this party!
>>34828159>Guess I should get ready for that, shouldn't I?It will be a good opportunity to scope out the competition if nothing else.
>>34828159>Guess I should get ready for that, shouldn't I?
>>34828159>Guess I should get ready for that, shouldn't I?What about Holly though? Is she coming along, or is she gonna go and pick up those tools for the modding process instead?
>>34828159>Other"TO THE PARTY, MY SISTER! Now, who wants a Gundam ride?!" Pick her up, put her on our shoulders, and run around.
>>34828159>>Eh, maybe I'll ditch.How else will we be meeting another potential Newtype waifu?
>>34828159>Guess I should get ready for that, shouldn't I?Definitely should try and meet the Italian dandy again, maybe even meet Ral here too. I wonder how they will react to our fight against Neo Unicorn.
>>34827929thats actually easy to say if your reading it zero point zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero one if im not mistaken at least.
>>34828257I just say 10^-15 seconds. Scientific notation is your friend.
>>34828203ORE GA GUNDAM DA!!!TOBE, GUNDAM!!!
>>34828203Now this good.
>>34828282thats true but i felt like that might be cheating either way its not hard to say at all.
>>34828203My heart is going trans am over this. Please do it.
>>34828203THIS. Also wear a cardboard box and a RX-78-2 mask.
>>34828311>not dressing ourselves up in an incredibly detailed GM-Head costume>implying Karen isn't our wingmanfu
I wonder what does Lucina think of Destiny?
>>34828417And now I'm imagining a Karen cameo at the world tournament. I kinda want it. A lot.Why is she so great?
>>34828471We probably traumatized her.
>>34828159"TO THE PARTY, MY SISTER!" You below, picking up Holly and planting her on your shoulders as you run around the dorm room, making silly pretend flying noises."Aaaaah! Jack! S-stop!" Holly says in between bouts of terror and laughter. "Never!" You yell!""It's that that moment the door opens, and you accidentally bowl over into Charlotte and Lucina, ending up in a tangled mess on the floor."Should... should I even ask what was happening?" Charlotte blinks."Brother/sister bonding?" Lucina asks quizzically."Jack being real stupid." Holly grunts."Figures." Both Charlotte and Lucina nod."Hey!" "Anyways," Charlotte gets up and brushes herself off. "I assume you're going to the party tonight?""Yeah, no reason not to." You say."It seems like a good way to get to know the other fighters." Lucina points out. "Yeah." You nod, and then frown. "Wait, is this going to be one of them fancy parties?""Yesssssss." All three girls say."Don't you read the brochures?" Charlotte sighs.

So what are your favourite Gundam Openings/Endings, Anons?I always liked this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A358-QODoI0
>>34828929I don't think even Merc is foolhardy enough to invite the shitstorm that would result from HER appearing.
>>34828983I'm quite partial to Silent Voice, the second opening for ZZ. Men of Destiny from Stardust Memory is pretty good, too.
>>34828983G Gundam's 1st OP is definitely one of my favorites.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0a4vB9FjtHY
>>34828990Whos in idolruns?
>>34828972Exactly!>>34828990She appeared in other quests before. As long as she doesn't suffer from a inferiority complex we're good
>>34829022Different anon here, the difference is that she's a supporting character on our staff.
>>34829035and she'll be a supporting character here too
>>34828983I always liked the 08th MS team op and the 2nd Gundam X intro.

>>34828588You suppose you should concentrate on making yourself look presentable. After all, you need to make a good first impression on everybody. You banish Holly to the the girls' room so you don't have to worry about her pestering you and you get to work, taking a quick shower, meticulously combing your hair, and finally putting on the suit. You have to admit, looking in the mirror, you look pretty snazzy. You suppose it's time to check on the girls, too. You head out to their room, which is conveniently located next to yours, and you knock on the door. "You girls ready yet?""Almost!" You hear Charlotte say.So, you spend the next few minutes waiting awkwardly in the hall. Every so often, some random fighters would pass by, similarly dressed. You'd just give them a brief, acknowledging nod. Finally, the door opens, and the three girls come out, and you're just left speechless.Holly is probably them most conservatively dressed. A simple frilly black dress and white stockings. It's the sort of thing kids would wear at school events, like recitals. Simple enough.Lucina was dressed in a blue gown with long, black pantyhose going down her legs. It was rather alluring.Charlotte, of course, was wearing a red dress and top, opting to go bare legged."So, how do we look?" She asks.(cont)
>>34829301"You all look... presentable." You say neutrally.Charlotte just rolls her eyes while Lucina smiles a bit."We should be going." Lucina says, leading the way. The party hall is not that far, located on the same property the dorms and main stadium are. The four of you file in and see at least a hundred people present, fighters, dignitaries, and other assorted VIPs. It was all pretty overwhelming.Already, Charlotte and Lucina start to attract attention, and you don't even really have to guess why. Holly sticks close to you while you look around.You see Ricardo Fellini trying to woo Charlotte and Lucina. Charlotte looks like she's having none of it, while Lucina seems more oblivious to the flirting.You see Ral chumming it with an elderly man at the refreshment table. And then there's Mao, who is trying to strike up a conversation with that girl who won the German qualifiers, and not having a very successful time at it.Then again, there's a lot of other fresh faces here. Maybe you can just mingle casually.>Go see Fellini.>Go see Ral>Go see Mao>Mingle casually.>Other

>>34829318You first head off to where Mao was. After all, Holly wanted to see him so bad. Getting a closer look, you see he was actually pretty effeminate looking, with squinty looking eyes. You had trouble believing he was one of the best builders in the world, but Holly has no reason to lie to you, and, well, Holly in your mind was one of the best builders in the world, too, so you guess you shouldn't be making such judgments. "Ooooooh! It's Mao Yasaka!" Holly squeals and bolts forward ahead of you. You see her grab Mao's hands and start fangirling over him, stars in her eyes. It was actually kinda funny. Meanwhile, the German girl is temporarily forgotten, left to the sidelines.>Listen in on them.>Talk to the German girl.>Other
>>34829728>>Talk to the German girl."Sorry for stealing Mao. My sister's a big fan of jis."

So, I kinda made a thing. I took a picture of the Delta Gundam, greyscaled it up, made it slightly transparent, and then I drew some modifications over the MS itself.Mainly the head, but still.It's grayscale because I have no idea what to do for a colorscheme.
>>34829728>>Talk to the German girl.
>>34829728>Talk to the German girl.Gluten tags.
>>34829728>Talk to the German girl.>"So, did you also stumble into this hobby after starting out assembling tank models first?"I recall that she used a modified Loto, and that's pretty much it.I don't want to tack on assumptions on her personality based on Infinite Stratos yet.She might just get Jake as a fan, depending on her answer.
I think the ball extension will look something like this.
You know what we should do?We should totally make the two new balls out of clear parts.No one knows the balls exist until TADAAAA
>>34830027Oh shit there is a ball extension?
>>34829728As Holly is squeeing over Mao, you turn to the silver haired German girl."Um, hello?" You approach carefully. "Do you speak English?""Danke." The girl says. She doesn't snap at you or anything, but it's said with a force and conviction that it makes you stop in your tracks. "I apologize, I mean yes." "Ah." You nod. "I'm Jack Foulke, one of the fighters. I assume you're the German entrant.""Correct." The girl nods. "Laura Schnee. German representative for the Gunpla World Tournament."There's a few more seconds of silence between the two of you."You... don't talk much, do you?" You say."If there is nothing to talk about." Laura shrugs.>Talk about Gunpla.>Talk about her fight history.>Go talk to someone else.>Other

>>34830165She fought against her once.
>>34830156I don't see why not, some Zeta Plus variants had them.
>>34830195I'm re-combing the archive here to confirm.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/34330339/#p34337305And found this bit while doing so.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/34330339/#p34336685Merc, is it Schnee or Schwarz?
>>34830198I'm not questioning why so much as I'm grinning like a madman about it. Although on something like the Delta, the output on the cannon would have to be decreased, or a better reactor with higher output would need to be installed.Than again, it's Gunpla and not an actual Gundam, so you don't really need to question how something works; it just does.
>>34830261>or a better reactor with higher output would need to be installedGN DRIVES, EVERYWHERE!
>>34830097>OtherAsk about what made her get into the tournament.
>>34830097"So, I remember seeing your battle in the German qualifiers. You use a Loto, right?" You ask."Correct." Laura nods. "The Loto Leopard is designed to fight and win against any opponent.""But Lotos can't fly, right? That kind of puts a damper on their mobility." You point."The Loto Leopard has ample anti-air counters." Laura says. "It's a product of proud German engineering and will not go down easily.""I see.""Anyways, I make it a point to watch every other national qualifier to get an idea of who I'm fighting." Laura says, frowning. "But I do not recall seeing you. You don't happen to be a special entry, are you?""Right on the money." You say. "Ah." Laura nods. "Since you know what my Gunpla is, I believe it's customary to show me yours." Well, you guess it's the polite thing to do."Well, I used to run a GM Juggler, but I converted it into a Jesta and then I sort of started calling it the Jester after that.""I see... that's a rare variant." Laura nods. "Well then, Mr. Foulke, I look forward to seeing you in the finals if you make it there."Laura then snaps off a professional salute and marches off, presumably to go "talk" to other fighters. You turn to check in on Holly, and see that she seems to be in a very heated staring contest with Mao. You're... not sure what they're doing but you're pretty sure you're better off not disturbing them.>Talk to Fellini>Talk to Ral>Mingle in the crowd.>Other

"You're a very lucky guy, Mr. Foulke. I'm almost jealous.""Whatever you say." You grin."So I see you made it here along with Charlotte, here!" Fellini continues. "Good! That means I'll get the chance to test your mettle!""Be careful what you wish for." Charlotte gives a toothy smile. "You might regret it.""Oho, that's the spirit!"

Btw are you looking for Custom Gunpla for fodder, i would gladly have my GenoBuster get fodderized off screen
>>34830564"So, Fellini, who do you think the top runners this year are?" You ask."Well, in my personal opinion, not including me, I think you need to watch out for most of the returning finalists. The Renato Brothers, Luang Dallara, and Julian Mackenzie are fighters you should watch out for. I shouldn't even have to mention the Meijin, too. For the newcomers, the only ones that stand out in particular are Charlotte here, and Laura Schwarz.""Nothing about me?" You grin."Well, I have to be honest with you, but you don't have a history and you didn't fight your way through the qualifiers, so it's not surprising you're a relative unknown." Fellini grins. "But hey, even that's got it's silver lining. That means other fighters might not take you seriously until it's too late.""Yeah, I can see that." You nod. "Also, it's our first tournament, so how exactly do things work?""Well, the first week are the preliminary rounds, of which there are eight." Fellini explains. "The events are changed up from year to year, and generally they're supposed to test all aspects of Gunpla and their fighters. You get four points for winning each round, and by the end of the eight rounds the top 16 fighters are put into the final bracket.""And what kind of events can we expect in the preliminaries?" You ask."It depends." He shrugs. "The events are changed up from year to year, but the two most popular ones that always stay around are the first two: the Free for All where four Gunpla are pitted against each other, and Battle Royale where every Gunpla is put on the field at once.""Yeah, I remember those." You nod. "Pretty hectic.""Of course. You have be on top of your game to get through all eight." Fellini nods. "But it shouldn't be a problem for you and Charlotte. You two are a cut above the rest. I can tell.""Thanks, Fellini." You grin.>Ask Fellini something else?>Talk to Ral>Mingle with the crowd.>Other

"I've got some other people to see, so I guess we'll be parting ways for now."You, Charlotte, and Lucina split off from Fellini, who gravitates to another group of cute girls. Heh, never stop being who you are, Fellini."Ah! If it isn't Jack!" Ral chortles. "Found you way into the tournament, I see!" "Yep." You nod. "Mr. Ral, you've already met Charlotte here. This girl here is my friend, Lucina. She came along to cheer us on.""I see, I see." Mr. Ral smiles and turns to his partner. "Chinan, stop being rude and greet them!""Huh? What?" The old man blinks as if he was just snapped out of a trance."You were ogling them, weren't you?" Ral sighs."Of course not!" Chinan huffs. "The Master of the Shingyo School of Gunpla would not stoop to such lows!"Ral gives him a look that shows he's completely unconvinced."Anyways." He sighs. "This man here is Master Chinan, of the Shingyo School of Gunpla."You heard of the Shingyo School, supposedly one of the most respect Gunpla building schools in the world. Known to be notoriously exclusive, the school has had few students and even fewer graduates. To your knowledge, Mao was the only known person in the world to be considered a Shingyo "master" apart from Chinan."It's a pleasure to meet you, Master Chinan." You nod respectfully."Yes... yes..." Chinan nods, and then suddenly puts you under an intense glare. "QUICK! Who is your favorite Gundam girl?!"OH SHIT>Think fast!
>>34831147Lucina!Just jokingGM Head girl?
>>34831147Charloote, only answer
>>34831147"Hmm, that's a tough question. Are you sure I can only pick one?"
>>34831147There is no right answer, all Gundam girls are best.If you ask me, it's pic related.
>>34831147Felt GraceI don't think there is a truly right answer, and Chinan's something of a pervert.I.e. He's not likely to test your gundam knowledge like Ral would do.
>>34831147Answer "CHAAAR !!" in a panic only then to realize the word 'girl' didn't register.

Leave it to /tg/ to make a simple question horrifbly complicated.
>>34831147>"RossweissePhysically Marida Cruz
>>34831147Well, I guess if we want to score points with him, we'll have to go with Ramius. Gundam isn't really known for grade A waifus, anyway.
>>34831316>Leave it to Gundam fans to make a simple question horrifbly complicated.ftfy
>>34831316Because they want to score waifu points by saying Char.
>>34831356if it was on /m/ girls would be mentioned, not Char 20+ times.>>34831360It's not something to score waifu points on. that's "dumber than /b/ during the summer"
>>34831147WELLIt seems it's a tossup between these two!>CHAR>Rossweisse
>>34831397>>RossweisseBecause Char is a dude man
>>34831371>that's "dumber than /b/ during the summer"Charfags in a nutshell, folks.>>34831397>RossweisseBecause the other answer is the most retardedly blatant waifufagging ever.
>>34831403Well if it was for best gundam lead then Char will be obvious, this vote not so much
>>34831397>>RossweisseFucking retards>>34831403I don't give a shit about either, not everything is about waifus, sometimes its just a simple question.And you know what I'm going to go for some other girl just to fuck over twettle dumbs, and twettle dumbers
>>34831397>RossweisseReally the correct answer to the question was Laura Rolla, because it'll make everyone (except Lucina) laugh.
>>34831397>RossweisseI'm all for charlotte, but CHAR is just stupid
>>34831453Chinan'd likely look at us weird (considering he's interested in shapely beauties, not traps or The Char)At this rate it will be like VMQ2 all over again.
>>34831453>Laura RollaOr that bitch from Gundam Wing.but that will be a bad joke
Man....I didn't even know who Rossweisse was before this, I wanted to choose Marida dammit.
>>34831473Chinan was pretty bro in the series though and lives on the ideas of "whatever you love is fine." I think he'd laugh rather than think us weird.
>>34831480welcome to waifufags and the mindset that ruined VMQ2. Instead of fun question, they assumed it was a waifu earning point thing.Though I'd have thought that Merc would do the smart thing and lock things before now, something he should do before a game losing decision is made due to "muh waifus"
If nothing else, this choice is an excellent analog to the more serious, inevitable Waifuing choice.Yes, people. The waifuing is very real. And is still going strong, even after everything that happened on that other quest.
SheeshI can feel the thread going sour.
>>34831531I wasn't apart of VMQ2 but if this kind of shit ruined an entire Quest then this is a BAD thing.
Can we at least laugh it off afterwards and say something like "Oh, you meant which one of them I think is hottest. Murrue Ramius, then, definitely."
>>34831569he kinda told every one to chose a best girl. it was inevitable and totally worth it.
>>34831585It killed Merc's interest in the setting, that's how bad it was. Odds are this is going to follow if not doing quests entirely (at least ones with teenagers as they're the ones that invite the retard waifufags, the ones with adult characters are more reasonable)>>34831593Out of Gundam series, not in the quest.
>>34831569You and me both...>>34831593Waifuing sucks...All Gundam girls are best.except Quess and Nina Purpleton because they are a cancer.
>>34831618We shoulda been a frelling pilot.
Haman Karn. I respect anyone that can wear their hair like that and get away with it.
>>34831659I don't think that'd have changed things considering the trends seen as there would have been a girl, likely lucina/tarin and shit would hae still broken out because mix a teenage guy and having to choose one girl and EVERYONE LOSES THEIR FUCKING MIND!
>>34831665I respect anyone who can wear a cape in public and make it look good. Not as much of Zeon can pull that look off as think they can.
>>34831665Oh please, she's just stealing Sayla's iconic hairstyle.I'll bet Haman doesn't even have pink nipples
>>34831397"Um, well, I always kinda liked Rossweisse." You say quickly."Who?" Lucina asks."Who?" Charlotte blinks."Ohohoho!" Chinan chortles. "You certainly have unique tastes in both Gundam girls and Gundam fiction! I'm surprised you even know of that novel!""Well, I AM a really big fan of the series." You blush a bit."Don't listen to this old fool." Ral shakes his head. "He's rather shameless when it comes to female Gundam characters.""Stop being such a spoilsport, Ral!" Chinan chuckles. "It's all in good fun!""Then who's your favorite girl?" You ask."Murrue Ramius!" Chinan says without hesitating. "That frontal armor of hers is simply unmatched!"Frontal armor? But Murrue didn't even pilot a-Oh.OH.You turn to the girls. Lucina looks a bit confused and Charlotte just shakes her head."ANYWAYS." Ral coughs to change the subject.

>>34831742I supported it since I had to actually look this up and considering is was so obscure. Jack would definitely like this.
>>34831702>Excited>Other"It hasn't really sunken in yet. Right now I'm just happy to be here, but in a day or two I'm sure I'll be freaking out. Ask me again after the first round of the preliminaries, I think I'll be less biased then."
>>34831702>A bit nervousWe got in without having to fight in the qualifiers, so it's fair to think that we're disadvantaged
>>34831702>Excited>A bit nervous.There are a lot of big names and promising players around.
>>34831742I hope you're actually talking about the pilot herself and not Lucina with that remark.
>>34831786Oh wow, dude.Paranoid much?
>>34831796Did you not read the constant CHAR vs Rossweisse votes? It was basically a proxy waifu war over nothing.
>>34831702>>I'M TOTALLY FREAKING OUT
>>34831786My eyes are only for Rossweisse.
>>34831786Ok seriously that is a bit much.I can understand the quiet trait but it was mostly due to how obscure it was and seemed safe compared to the Char votes
>>34831816Man is it really obscure? I've know about it long time.
>>34831806Seems to me a lot of people were going "Oh god that 'muh Char!' shit's retarded, better back whatever has the best chance of beating it."
>>34831816Welcome to waifufags and their 'logic'. Quiet slim serious girl? Sounds familiar.
>>34831848I was one of those people.I just wanted to answer what I liked honestly by saying Marida but...well, yeah.
>>34831702"Both excited and nervous." You admit. "I mean, how can I not be? I'm standing in the same room as the best Gunpla fighters in the world!""That is true." Ral nods. "I won't sugarcoat this. Your journey to the top will a long and hard one. But, if you believe in yourself and your Gunpla, then you will go far.""Thanks, Mr. Ral." You smile. "Though that advice was meant for you as much as Charlotte here." Ral nods to your rival. "I look forwarding to seeing how you will do in the tournament!""Now, if you excuse me, I need to check up on my lazy, good for nothing student." Chinan says jokingly. "I suppose I should accompany him." Ral sighs. "You never know what that old coot is up to. I shall take my leave here."As the two old men make their exit, Charlotte turns to you. "Hey, Jack, it looks like the party is starting to wind down. You wanna get a dance in?""Ah, perhaps we can take turns." Lucina says."Yeah, I guess. That's the fair thing." Charlotte nods. "How about it, Jack?">Sure, I'll dance.>Maybe later. I wanna mingle more.>Other
>>34831910>>Sure, I'll dance.
>>34831910>Sure, I'll dance.
>>34831910>>Sure, I'll dance.After that, we'll dance with Lucina, and maybe Holly if she's available.
>>34831839Rossweisse is only shown in a fairly obscure light novel.The only reason why I know she exists is due to Shadows of Zeon.
>>34831910>>Sure, I'll dance.Do it.
>>34831931Based Merc.SoZ is funn
>>34831931>>34831910>Sure, I'll dance.I just don't know.... What about ALICE?
>>34831930What are the odds that she's still in an imaginary gunpla battle staredown match with Mao? Pretty high, I'd say.At least she'll get the best advice on where to get the best quality tools for her future build projects. I'm looking forward to that.
>>34831910>>Sure, I'll dance.Both best girls!
>>34831863But their's like one for almost each gundam series though?
>>34831910"Sure, I'll dance." You nod. "I'm really, REALLY rusty, though. I only learned this in school.""Don't worry, I remember the steps like the back of my hand." Charlotte grins and holds out her hand. "I can lead, if you like."And she isn't kidding. The moment you take her hand, she pulls you close and literally starts dragging you across the room like a giant mannequin."Learned all this from your travels, huh?""Yep. Got dragged to a bunch of fancy parties with them. Learning to dance was something of a necessity." Charlotte says with a hint of bitterness. "But the skill has its uses."Finally, the song ends, and you're left catching your breath as Charlotte steps off the sidelines."He's all yours now." She says to Lucina.Lucina shyly takes your hand and lets you lead. You remember pretty vividly that she failed the dance lessons pretty hard. She had accidentally stepped on her partner's foot so hard it broke a toe.It still aches sometime to this day."I'm not sure if I can keep up..." Lucina mumbles."Don't worry. Charlotte got me all warmed up." You say, taking the lead the lead this time. However, unlike Charlotte, you keep the pace a bit slower than the actual song, to make sure Lucina can keep up, as she keeps eying every step she takes cautiously. It was a huge contrast from the way she normally moved, with such fluid grace and confidence.Finally, the second song ends, and Lucina stand beside Charlotte as Holly butts in for her turn. It was a bit awkward since she was so much shorter than you were, plus she had no clue what the hell she was doing, but you manage to make it work.(cont)
>>34832145"So, you have fun with Mao?" You ask."Oh yeah, we got into this huge argument over who's Gunpla was better, and then we got into an imaginary Gunpla battle and then we promised to actually battle sometime in the future!" Holly said happily. "But I have to admit, he really does know his stuff. I can't wait to see his Crossbone Maoh in action!""You probably won't have to wait long." You grin. "You gonna be his girlfriend?""Pffft! He wishes!" Holly rolls her eyes. "Besides, he said he was taken already.""Really?" You blink. That was surprising."Yep. But whatever." Holly shrugs. "I'm gonna make the Jester better, so you better promise me you'll kick his butt!""I will, you laugh." You laugh. "I will."Finally, the party finally winds down and the guests slowly start to leave. You and Charlotte decide to leave as well so you can turn in early. The actual tournament was due to start tomorrow, and you needed all the rest you could get.Tomorrow was going to be an interesting day.>And that's it for tonight! The next thread will be on Tuesday! Don't forget Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and PJ Witches on Sunday!
>>34832145Holly was probably standing on our shoes.
>>34832159Who would Mao be dating?
>>34832179The girl he liked in the anime, whatsherface, from that one inn, and that mob dude.
>>34832159Aw yeah. I'm itching to see how Jack's build will fare against the Renato's for one.
>>34832179This girl, Misaki, from that Inn episode with the Yakuza guy.
>>34832216What did Lucina think of Seed Destiny?Also did Char try to open the Emergency exit to the plane?
>>34832206>>34832216Yeah, as soon as I get back from looking up her name, merc posts it
>>34832230>What did Lucina think of Seed Destiny?What does ANYONE think about Destiny?
>>34832159Will thanks for running it am going to read Advance of Zeta: The Traitor to Destiny and Gundam Sentinel again now.
>>34832245>What does ANYONE think about Destiny?That Super Robot Wars did it better.
>>34832245that it' retarded on so many level some have lost faith in humanity?
>>34832230Lucina couldn't make any sense of it. And since the flight attendants wouldn't serve her alcohol, Charlotte tried to slit her wrists with a plastic knife.I may have embellished some details.
>>34832267>That Super Robot Wars did it better.You got that right anon!
>>34832216Holly is safe folks, Mao likes older girls...
>>34832276sounds about right
>>34832276hahaha! The scary thing is that it is possible to do that though.Cutting yourself with a plastic knife.I just imagine that Jack restrained her for going too crazy while making her not turn away from the horrow
>>34832276So holly was a sleep for the whole trip?
>>34832295But Mao is an Okay dude. and We can kill him if he does anything.>>34832276So who won the imaginary gunpla battle?The Super Ball or Crossbone Maoh??
>>34832230We already showed her 00, right?Because I think she'd be all confused about "Wait, why is this bullshit working?", as Celestial Being is pretty much one great big "take that" to Destiny style armed intervention, demonstrating that "it doesn't fucking work".
>>34832353Lucina doesn't seem to care much for the mechanics and cares more if sword A can cut through Gunpla B? That is why we gave her a sword binder instead of a GM Drive (Which we should do sometime)
>>34832353Except it did work. The three major blocks became unified and made the federation. That was the plan all along. Just Ribbons went "mine", and made the A-Laws/Titans
>>34832353Somewhat, though the gundam pilots were rather aware of what they were doing was wrong but thought it was the best way to go about things.That and unlike Kira and Co. CB mainly took out one side in a conflict, not attacking BOTH. Only exception was when the three major blocs (working together) lured them into a trap.
>>34832380Should have shown her the Astrray manga instead.
>>34832741Why not showing her G Gundam?
