Sorry for the kind of late start, I was busily catching up on that long, long backlog of missed sleep. I think I'm up to somewhere around 2007 now, haha. Let's see... news. well, Civ: Beyond earth is... disappointing. here's hoping it gets better in a while, or the team gets canned before civ 6 comes out. I'd accept either. Archiver here:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Strike%20witches%201989++The setting sun outside Ice's office window hits you almost perfectly in the eyes- you end up moving your chair back to avoid it. “So what's the deal, here?” You ask as she gets up to close the blinds- which, on the one hand, solves the sun problem, but it also means you can't see them towing your fighter out for the night's alert duty. Trade-offs, you suppose. She sighs, and taps one stack of papers, held together with a paperclip. “That's a bunch of papers- don't go through them-” She says, noticing you reaching for them- “That basically boils down to two things. One is that the US Navy, at the behest of the headmatron of the US naval academy at Annapolis is sending us a new witch, Lieutenant junior grade Cassiopeia Davis. They have reason to believe her talent is extremely similar to Merlin's.”“Similar.” You state. “How similar are we talking?” She shrugs. “Close enough that they don't feel there's an undue amount of risk in assigning her to take Merlin's place as your RIO, then backing it with enough orders that I'm going to have trouble getting us out of it.” She says, without betraying any emotion. “She's displayed the same talent for making machines hold together under extreme conditions and stress, to include aircraft.” “What about the rest of it?” You ask. “Merlin's not just about making sure the plane doesn't fall apart, you know.”1/2 (hopefully)
Ice nods. “Yeah, I know. And, according to that-” She indicates the papers again- “She scored marginally better than Merlin overall in RIO school, in almost every category.” “I find that hard to believe.” You say, flatly. She shrugs again. “Believe it or not, that's what it says.” You note she doesn't say she believes it either- which is kind of telling. “She's not got the same talent with missiles, though, but if this is true, she's got better control of her shield.”“So she's more defensive.” You say, shaking your head. “I don't know how that'll work with what we're supposed to do.” Ice nods. “I know. She's got the same talents with a gun, though, and most of what you've done lately is in close.” “So what's the other thing?” You ask- already trying to figure out how you're going to get out of having her assigned to the squadron permanently. 2/3
Ice hesitates- a bad sign. “The second is an order to supply one combat experienced RIO for research and development duties with VX twenty three at Patuxent River.” She says. “And coming with the new RIO like it is-”“They want Merlin.” you state, already shaking your head. “No way I'm willing to part with her.”She nods. “Frank, look, there's not a lot I can do here. Her replacement is already on the way, and they want her soon. Hell, if I hadn't pointed out that every ground element in AOR north would be gunning for their blood if they took you two away before the night raiders were stopped, they'd have left you without a RIO while Lt. Davis was in transit.” “And?” You say. “You've said before you don't have to release people you don't want to- witch prerogative or whatever. Use it now.”A look of frustration and sadness crosses her face. “It's not that simple-” Cut her off. Of course it's that simple, unless she's going to put whatever the fuck Longstreet is up to before your effectiveness.  Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.
>>35817647> Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.Hold it in Fronk.
>>35817647>[x] Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.For fuck's sake Frank, I know you're attached to Merlin and all but taking it out on Ice and Davis is not the right thing to do. At the very least give the poor girl a chance.
>>35817647>[x] Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.I guess this is payback for the stunt we pulled for those fucking brits...
>>35817647 Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.
>>35817671It was coming one way or the other after we told her no on the carrier, at most the Brit stunt simply sped it up.
>>35817647> Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.Fucking Longstreet. Do you think we can talk Slider and the Sharks into sidelining the new girl somehow? Maybe putting something in her food?
>>35817647>[X] Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.No reason to go after Ice.
>>35817671also lets not shoot up the new girl for fuck sake. she might just be a pawn in all of this
How's the pregnancy going?
>>35817647> Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.It's Ice, she wants to help
>>35817647>[x] Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.Longstreet's the bitch we're pissed at, not Ice.
>>35817647> Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.Let's not shoot the messenger.
>>35817697LETS GET PUT IN THE FUCKING BRIG!
>>35817647>[x] Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.>The second is an order to supply one combat experienced RIOhmm, never specifies who, and how quickly. I say we take Davis up into one combat mission. This will give us 2 combat experienced RIOs. Then we can send Davis right back, technically meeting the letter of our orders
>>35817697Jesus fucking Christ mate, we haven't even met the girl. This shit isn't any better than those bitches hazing Goose a while back.
>>35817647>[x] Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.I was open to the new RIO, until the second thing. As for the anger use it as fuel, perhaps we can hold our anger in so much that we can get the Gnoming to feed off of that and not our life force. Best night of the week!
>>35817732That was my thought as well.
>>35817647> Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.
>>35817732>>35817752>>35817786morons! that what she wants us to do!
>>35817801So the better idea is to send Merlin back?
>>35817647[X] Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.
>>35817738>This shit isn't any better than those bitches hazing Goose a while back.Exactly. Only difference being Goose was in our unit. The new bitch isn't.
>>35817647>[X] Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.Don't shot the messenger.
>>35817732Ya know what, that sounds like military bullshit to me. I like it!
>>35817732Loophole abuse FTW!
>>35817647> Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.Let's send the sherktwin RIO, shouldn't be more than a week before they send her back
Agh!I hate this twist because it's going to be goddamn weeks before we properly deal with it!
>>35817815we might have to. face it we pissed off the wrong people and we are now paying for it
>>35817837Because that totally means that it's alright to haze and generally bully a girl fresh out of the academy because she's sent to the wrong place at the wrong time.You're no better than the fucking Brits.
>>35817885You mean the people who we never had a chance to get off on the right foot with and will never be able to?Sorry, but we're probably going to go down spitting and screaming and resigning commissions with this if we have to lose Merlin.
>>35817885Longstreet fuck up first impressions, she set us on this path for being a blackmailing bitch. Time to play our cards, no one is going to make it out clean.
>>35817909Welcome to the Warzone, kiddo. This is what happens when you fuck with a veteran unit and try to remove one of its most valuable and cherished members for some new kid.
>>35818061Then take it out on Longstreet instead of clutching your injured ass and blaming it on the kid who had no control over this.
>>35817647>let her finish
>>35818038Let's let Ice finish talking before we plan crazy shit
>>35818061fuck off brit
>>35818083bets that Lt. Davis is going to be one of our fangirls? Worshiping the very ground we walk upon?
>>35818112we don't want him!
>>35818139I bet she's one of Longstreets girls and hates the very air we breath.
>>35818139I wouldn't be surprised.
>>35818139She is coming from Annapolis and last time we were there we left with all the witches upset, low fucking chance.
>>35818150That's what I got money on as well. Which isn't going to be good for anyone.
>>35818150Yeah I bet shes some kinda spy sent to sabotage us, playing the little sister then making us look bad so Longstreet can do things. Or shes just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
>>35818083Indeed. Longstreet's gone too far this time. When we first met her, she tried to blackmail Ice into sending Merlin back to the Academy. When we made that trip over to America during our stay at Barin, she tried to emotionally guilt-trip us.So far as we are aware, Lt. Davis has had no part in this. Further, we've never even MET her before, though we know she's on the way. Until we get direct confirmation, we leave the kid out of our retaliation.
>>35818179>>35818182I'm not sure she'll up and up be a spy, but she's definitely not going to be anywhere near as good as Merlin is and I really doubt that she'll like us very much, even if she doesn't try to actively sabotage us.
>>35818203Agreed save the hazing until/if Davis turns out to be longstreet's bitch
>>35817647> Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other.Score one to military bureucracy
>>35818209Look look, I know we love Merlin and all that but all indications so far is that the girl has just as much talent as Merlin. Only thing likely holding her back is that she doesn't have any combat experience.Jesus people. we haven't even met nor worked alongside her. Save your assumptions until then.
>>35818256People pissed because someone try to swap our experienced RIO with nuggets/boots/whatever your squid equivalent.Though i gonna see how her act first before making judgement.
>>35817732Loopholes are for FUN! And are polite ways of telling people to get fucked!
>>35818256We have what are probably at least mildly biased reports that clearly indicate Longstreet is fucking with us. Personally I have nothing against the girl except for the fact that she isn't Merlin, whom we have months/years with as our RIO and knows exactly what we need when we need it. And yes, that RIO bond means a lot in combat.
>>35818256Here's the thing. We're on the front lines. The fucking spear point right for this war. And you want inexperienced nugget in the backseat? One that is not going to have the time to figure out our flying style before being put into a brawl, you fucking high?
For anyone not following PJ witches:reposting PJ witches halloween edition.
>>35818286Eh its worse than that I think. It would be one thing if we were a normal pilot and got a transfer. It's an entirely different thing to swap an ace's RIO when he has a giant bounty on his head by the enemy and squadrons of aces being sent to ambush him.
>>35818256>Only thing likely holding her back is that she doesn't have any combat experience.And that is a major thing if our focus is targeting Ace Squadrons and other high value targets. That is also ignoring the fact we haven't bonded with her.
>>35818321And second page.On next week is Spellcaster Halloween edition.
>>35818303The possibility that they are biased doesn't necessarily determine with any certainty that the girl is actually worse than Merlin. I know combat experience counts for a lot and Merlin certainly has a strong advantage in that regard, but saying the girl is useless entirely is something else.
>>35818321>>35818347hah these are great
>>35818350I don't think anyone except that one guy has anything against the girl besides the fact that she isn't Merlin. It's mostly just she's put in a bad light because she's been placed here by Longstreet, directly or indirectly.
>>35818350For the place we're at right now? For things we need to take down? Yes, she is.
>>35818347Dress Blues with a sword!
>>35818347>that tarin and nungYes.
Some of the biggest problems I see with the new RIO is:1. Those test scores seem highly suspect. For her to so conveniently top Merlin in just about everything and Longstreet not snatching her up for herself.2. Some of the problems with throwing an inexperienced nugget into the front lines, like many have mentioned already.3. There is no guaranteed that the new RIO can handle Fronk's power levels like Merlin has. At best, we'll end up like we did with Katya. At worst, we'll end up with the plane literally flying apart during the middle of a dog fight and it'll be game over man, game over.
>>35818347Trick-or-treating at Best Grandma's house?
....anyone remember that joke about AC protags RIO?Like, when we pulled crazy stunts and our RIO at later point will just say "why i am wonder now.."?Same case, i think. Merlin already used with our crazy stunt by now. This girl? Still unknown. I don't surprised if she fainted or panicked from Franks crazy stunts.
>>35818404I'm guessing number one is related to the way Merlin is coming up with some wacky shit lately and the new girl is meant to be a placating gesture.A placating gesture that is obviously failing.
Problems with Davis:- not Merlin- Probably a Longstreet spy- no combat experience- no bonding- some dipshit brass fucking around with an active combat unit (which is at top of the soviet to-kill list)
>>35818412Best grandma will be saved for joint moment with best gnome and Bishops parents.Three MoH recipients and their witches wives is always good setup for something hilarious.
>>35818462Advantages to Davis:- can be for lewds
>>35818488Depends on how old she is. If she's 16 or under, you lose again Fapfic!
How small is our new RIO?Can we move things around in the jet to fit two small RIOs in?
>>35818503doesn't stop internet before.
>>35818515Fronk/89 people have been pretty good about not lewding anyone that young. Not saying it's a complete no-no, but it's not as likely.
>>35818475Awesome. Just remember that Mack's got both his eyes now.
[x] Let her finish- She's just a messenger and nothing's going to change if you end up pissed at each other. “- There's other things, too.” She says, quietly. “Longstreet sent me a letter. Separate from the orders, of course, it was 'personal' correspondence, but it got here at the same time.”You nod, waiting for the shoe to drop. Ice sighs, heavily. “It's- she basically came right out and stated if I don't play ball, she'll get me removed from command of VF three and reassigned elsewhere, and that she'd make sure the next commanding officer of the squadron wasn't so 'taken'- her word- with it's only male pilot.”“That's blackmail.” You say, more than slightly outraged by the concept. “How does she-”“It's witch politics, Frank.” Ice says. “Longstreet made a name for herself in combat too, remember. Southeast Asia, same series of conflicts as your parents. There's plenty of people who'll side with her, and you can bet when Merlin lands at Patuxent river, she'll find herself detached to Annapolis.”“So she played us?” You ask. “We lose, just like that? C'mon, there has to be something.”1/2
>>35818543Someone did a Merlin lewd. It wasn't me, though.
“Like what?” Ice asks, sitting down heavily and looking at you. “Frank, regardless of what the matron London may have given us in the way of titles and holdings, I'm still an officer in the United States Navy. These-” She indicates the papers- “Are still legally binding orders, issued to me by officers appointed over me. And on top of that, Longstreet is still one of my matrons, so I still have to respect her orders to me.” “Orders which include placing her spy with us and giving up Merlin, who she's wanted all along.” You practically snarl. “Frank, we don't know that.” Ice replies. “Look, Davis is older than Merlin, she was only recalled and trained after the matrons had some time at Barin, so maybe she's not so bad, and if she is some brainwashed flunky of Longstreet, do you really think I'll keep her? There's plenty of squadrons that want a team like you and Merlin, so they'd love to have her, regardless of her leanings.”“So either we give her what she wants, or she'll have you removed and then she'll get what she wants anyway?” You ask. Ice nods. “Yeah, that's pretty much the size of it.” What about Admiral Nixon, does he know about this shit?  Can one of the other witches help us maybe? What about Brigitte or Wendy? We could always pull a double switch with Davis and get her one or two combat flights, then pack her off.  We could send Clarissa. Money down they'd ship her back inside a week.
IDEA TIME GUYS,We bring Davis up with us by having her sit on merlins lap (assuming she's smaller, if not then merlin sitting on her lap). Merlin concentrates on weapons while Davis concentrates on shields.We get double the witch and double the abilities for the fight against Sturgion.
>>35818621>Defect to PutinThere is no way this can go wrong.

>>35818621Wait, the same theatre as our parents? Could we hit up mom for some help?
>>35818621> What about Admiral Nixon, does he know about this shit? Perhaps he can't do anything about this, but he still must know about this.> We could always pull a double switch with Davis and get her one or two combat flights, then pack her off. If this Davis girl not up to our standard legitimately, we can always pack her off. Or we can use Wardaddy routes.>>35818642We goes Razgriz now?
>>35818642>>35818655Fuck off the both you.
>>35818621>[x] What about Admiral Nixon, does he know about this shit?
>>35818621How about we both resign our commissions and tell her to go fuck herself?
>>35818569awesome.Any suggestion on how Bishop parents would like?
>>35818621> What about Admiral Nixon, does he know about this shit?> We could always pull a double switch with Davis and get her one or two combat flights, then pack her off. Worth a shot on both.

>>35818621>[X] We could send Clarissa. Money down they'd ship her back inside a week.They'll expect Nixon or a double switch, and other witches can't help us. So ask yourselves, what would the Bounce Lord do?

>>35818721All I know is that the dad should look like R. Lee. Ermy.

We could also resign in protest.The way I see safety is off, weapons free.
>>35818782We could do something worse. Something a lot worse. Transfer to the Air Force.
>>35818811Leaking anything is out of the question entirely
>>35818621>>35818764>>35818662>>35818811We have options.
>>35818450>>35818570Nope, this is definitely a setup for blackmail. And during the middle of wartime no less. It's time we took off the kiddy gloves, when it comes to Longstreet. First she tried to blackmail us with Ice's family possessions. Now she is going for a power play of forcing us to decide between turning Merlin over or Ice loses her command. It's time to call in all the matrons and get their help to bring a stop to Longstreet's tyranny.If all else fails...>Defect to Putin. At that point we might as well take up his offer to get that surgery done and become Super Saiyan Fronk.
>>35818621> What about Admiral Nixon, does he know about this shit? > Can one of the other witches help us maybe? What about Brigitte or Wendy?> We could always pull a double switch with Davis and get her one or two combat flights, then pack her off. > We could send Clarissa.

>>35818621 We could always pull a double switch with Davis and get her one or two combat flights, then pack her off.
Let's threaten to resign our commission in the middle of a war. I really want to see if it'll work out like people think it will, or if it ends up with a dead Frank and Merlin within a week.
>>35818829....even defecting to Putin is not that low compared to that option.
>>35818829In all seriousness, we'd be better choosing the Russians than them.
 What about Admiral Nixon, does he know about this shit? Can one of the other witches help us maybe? What about Brigitte or Wendy? We could always pull a double switch with Davis and get her one or two combat flights, then pack her off. We could send Clarissa. Money down they'd ship her back inside a week.Be systematic. These aren't mutually exclusive. Work your way down.
IDEA: We could leak to Konnie that the "Wall street Capitalist pigs" Are trying to send us another whore to try and stop our love for her!In short, get Konnie to ice the bitch because she's a yandere psychopath.>>35818800Yes, optional running up to her in a lecture and RKO-ing her to prove a point.And we can get away with it too.
>>35818859If you can think of a better way to get the Navy off our backs than to threaten to transfer our commission over to Chair Force, I'm all ears.
>>35818621>[x] We could always pull a double switch with Davis and get her one or two combat flights, then pack her off.>[x] What about Admiral Nixon, does he know about this shit?PREPARE FOR THE SHITSTORM, LONGSTREET!
>>35818621>[x] What about Admiral Nixon, does he know about this shit?Even if she is a matron this is some ridiculous bullshit she's pulling here.
>>35818811>>35818800>>35818764>leaking information about an active combat unit during a fucking war>acceptable at allHoly fucking SHIT, /tg/. You are some of the most selfish sons of bitches I've ever seen. Might as well call Stalin up and tell him our codes.
>>35818621>Open shades, yell angrily at the Martians to get on with it already
>>35818864Defecting would be good. Maybe we can then shoot down and kill Jess, or drop some bombs onto our brother's tank.
>>35818856It'd almost definitely be a court martial, and one that the establishment would probably win, but they'd be throwing away one of their more famous (and supposedly well-liked) aces in the process. Difficult choices for the Navy
>>35818621>[X] We could send Clarissa. Money down they'd ship her back inside a week.
>>35818830You're right, should have out right said go to the press. The attempted blackmail of an Officer of the United States Navy is not something someone can survive politically.>>35818829Short of defecting to the Soviets or the Martians, that's very worse case, like the missiles are in the air and we're 15 minutes from a nuclear wasteland.>>35818907It's not info about the unit moron, it's about the attempts at blackmail.
>>35818907Are you retarded?

>>35818919>not wanting to fly missions behind enemy lines operating from an enemy airbase and attacking the Reds from within
>>35818907No, we're leaking info that Longnose is trying to fuck our unit sideways because she wants to pull the BEST ace out of active combat DURING WORLD WAR THREE!The Idea is to spread enough to cause a shitstorm, but not enough to jeprodise the unit's operations.
>>35818621[x] We could always pull a double switch with Davis and get her one or two combat flights, then pack her off.
Well, in any case seems we are in Jake's shoes now: getting anally fucked by our superior.However Whittmann is not this bitch though.
>>35818964What he said.
....Maybe i am just full of bad ideas today.
>>35818981Yeah, but Bitchtits is hot. Longstreet isn't.I wouldn't mind getting anally fucked by bitchtits, though
>>35818964>>35818932>>35818940And you don't think the Russians can make use of that? That they can't play up that for chaos?
>>35818957I'd like to see Bridgette come to kill Frank, Merlin, and anyone that left with him if that happened.
>>35818964>>35818994The problem is that she's not trying to pull us, she's trying to pull our RIO. And she's providing an equally competent (on paper) replacement. And Merlin would theoretically be helping with war-ending research (or so the story would go). Going to the press could and would backfire stupendously
>>35818621> What about Admiral Nixon, does he know about this shit?> Can one of the other witches help us maybe? What about Brigitte or Wendy?> We could always pull a double switch with Davis and get her one or two combat flights, then pack her off.> We could send Clarissa. Money down they'd ship her back inside a week.All of the above, and if none of that takes resign. Not exaggerating. When witch politics starts having a negative impact on unit fighting effectiveness, it's time to draw the line.
>>35819059Good point, sir.
>>35819059The question is why cant she just train the replacement if their powers are so "similar."
>>35818981Whitmann has her reasons and in all honesty they are very legitimate. Longstreet is doing her very best at damaging an active combat squadron in the middle of a major war. Did I mention that active combat squadron is one of the most effective fighting units in this war? >>35819059>on paper Keyword there, the kid hasn't been bloodied. Combat could break her.
>>35819093Combat experience is a valuable resource. Especially the kind of experience Merlin has
>>35819059>Going to the press could and would backfire stupendouslyAnd wouldn't it be great to see the Fall of Frank Bishop?Stripped of his rank and honors, disowned by his family, court martialed and vilified by the media?Because the press can turn so quickly, and public opinion is so mercurial.
>>35819093Because Davis is actually a spy/ assassin who's supposed to kill us via magic backflow if we step out of line.Ask Ghost.
>>35819108Sure, but if your defense to the inevitable rebuttal and questioning is IT MIGHT GO WRONG, you've got a problem
>>35819059Well depends on the capability and how Davis deals with Frank. Remember what happen to Katya, when they were flying the tomcat she felt something overwhelming that a witch with her specs couldn't cope. Also I propose we should treat her decently once she arrives.
>>35819156Yes.We should test her in a jet other than the (jet we are flying) first. Just in case.IF we test her at all...
>>35819156>Put Davis in the back seat>Do our damned best to make the Wyvern VTOL before we even spool the engines up through sheer gnome>Once she comes to in a day or three send her back
>>35819156This is a very good point. A lot about Frank's talent has yet to be explained, and it seems to somehow be inherently aggressive and bloodthirsty. If we do have to put up with this spy I'd like to see how she handles this.
>>35819202We don't HAVE a jet that can do that though. We got the authority to fly anything but our plane taken away remember?
...You all are wrong.This is perfect setup for fronk to defect. To establishes his own witches states. Where the witches can fight for what they believed, not for matrons's political whim.Yes... Fronk will defect and create....[Spoiler]FRANKTOPIA....Okay, Outer Heaven then.[/spoiler]
>>35819232Another good point. Thanks for the reminder.
>>35819143Did he actually say that out of the thread?
>>35819232>stick some fiddycals inna bat>strafe rooskiesCombat mission in a plane we can fly. Bam.
>>35819246I am moderately sure he is joking.
>>35819246Fuck, I hope not.
>>35819238METAL GEAR TIME!Longstreet: no frank no!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gbe_HIL46lY
>>35819262>Stick fiddycals inna bat.>Ice grounds our ass immediately.
>>35819238I've been waiting for this since it was first talked about so many threads ago. Merc pilot quest is a go.
>>35819262>stick merlin and davis inna bat>twice the witch, twice the bounce
>>35819246>>35819265I wouldn't worry about it.
If we do the mission for everyone's favorite SEAL Voodoo Witch she said she'd do us a favor. No I'm not suggesting that favor be some wetwork. Probably.
>>35819349>wanting to assassinate a friendly officerThat puts us at "literally worse than Leigh-Mallory" level, though.
>>35819349Oh, oh yeah. We totally need to do that thing for Bridgette right the hell now and get all the favors we can. Spec-ops squadron?I dunno, just spitting ideas.
>>35818621> What about Admiral Nixon, does he know about this shit?i also remember something about us promising to go merc when they wouls seperate us from merlin
>>35819349We also have Konnie for disposal of unwanted intervention.Also, wets see if we can modernise a bat.The soviets will cower in fear as we bounce them harder than the NBA finals.
>>35819396Citation please. This is very interesing.
>>35819404>wetsNot sure if unintentional or implying...
>>35819404>>35819349So, who do we kill? Longstreet? Davis? Both of them?
>>35819384Longstreet is far from friendly, shes doing better at hurting the squadron then the Soviets ever have. That post was mostly a joke.>>35819396That or it was them pulling Ice from being CO.
>>35819384>>35819386It would convenient and hilarious if that mission weren't super time sensitive. Play the delaying game.>I need an experienced RIO for this mission>When's the mission>Secret, ma'am
>>35819438Friendly as in "on our side", not friendly as in nice.
>>35819455I think we could still pull that, at least long enough to try and stall for more options. "Super secret mission for the Cajun witches Ma'am, sorry.">>35819456Not even sure Longstreet is on our side anymore.
>>35819384Leigh-Mallory did it because he was a bitch.We do it because Longstreet is actively harming our ability to fight. I'm not even sure she's not a Soviet agent at this point.
>>35819430Contingency only.We don't WANT to kill them. But should the need arise it's best to prepare.
For me, our option now is either suck it up and hope for the best or goes independent.We can arrange fronk and merlin goes into 'accident' when flying bats, declared dead and try our luck with Putin....Still, the reprecussion will likely not small.
Dear god stop posting about killing longstreet before you scare Ghost away.
>>35819517Please stop that line of thinking right now. Holy hell you people are stupid.
If worst comes to worse and we cant stop merlin from being returned stateside, we should have merlin ask to head to one of the aerospace companies to continue her work on superstrikers.I think a bunch of CEOs of aerospace companies will be ready to fend off any attempts by longstreet to get her hands on her.She'll at least be in a place she enjoys, rather than in a lab, prodded like a lab animal
Why do I suddenly feel that this is all just a ploy by the martains, having mind controlled Longstreet, Stalin and others to make the war happen, be long and arduous, before invading again.
>>35819517They ARE ancient aircraft we had pulled out of a junkyard... It's perfect!
>>35819555It's the Venusians man, I keep telling everyone!
>>35818621>Other:>Is there anyway we could swing something using the "Guardian of Witches" title?Just a thought, although I feel like it won't be to any realy effect.
>>35819482>>35819490Just to play devil's advocate, consider her point of view:>try to advance position of American witch coven>Continually stymied by 2 relatively junior officers>Both are hard to touch because ace squadronShe might be s total bitch, but I'd hazard a guess that she's trying to do it for "her" witches, and considers Ice and Merlin near-traitors for refusing to acquiesce to her whims
>>35819555You need to loose those shadowrun goggles mate.
>>35819546And she'll have her boyfriend to keep her company and sane.Meanwhile, longstreet's plant has gone full spellcaster and has joined our side against that slag.
>>35819583She likely has very good intentions, but her methodology is HIGHLY flawed. I agree with you on your points though.
>>35819438>>35819417 took me some binginghttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/24961666/#p24965933
>>35819538>>35819538>>35819538No, my point is for now we have no other choices than accepting it and see loophole to get Merlin back or get her in better position later. Any other choices have severe consenquences for us and our allies.
>>35819585Nah, Stalin makes a bit of sense. The whole "cyborg with martian tech" thing and the Martian Dreadnoughts outta nowhere up in Alaska support that.Longstreet is just a bitch.
>>35819585Paranoia is best -noia.
>>35819583I think a decent portion of us agreed long ago that while she wasn't necessarily wrong, she was going about it completely wrong, like >>35819615said. Plus, by this point she's made it personal on several levels, so I don't think we're going to back down.
>>35819618Thank you sir.
>>35819620>We can arrange fronk and merlin goes into 'accident' when flying bats, declared dead and try our luck with Putin.That shit right there. Stop that. It's fucking idiotic.
>>35819615Road to hell, etc.The problem is that she's trying to advance the witches and not naval aviation - or the military - in general. Which is what she SHOULD be doing. at least, in my opinion.
>>35819583No, she's still a bitch who's trying to harm the war effort because her feelings got hurt.She's no better than a traitor now.
Isn't there some shit we can do with our titles? I mean, sure they're ceremonial, but isn't there something behind the "Guardian of Witches" title that lets us do some shit?Longstreet's putting undue duress on most, if not all, of our witches for her own personal gain. She switches our RIO for her own purposes, and having one that runs the risk of serving multiple masters severely compromises your ability to fight, and most importantly, protect your charge.
>>35819585There's a quest about Quberpunk kidnapping with many shadow runs, an assassin quest where you play a cat girl (haloween shenanigans) and SW89.They would boil over eventually.
>>35819583So she's a autistic control freak then. If 'advancing the position of American witch coven' means obscuring the heritage of an orphaned witch under your protection for political gain, she is a bitch by definition as far as I'm concerned.
>>35819669This anon has a point, our title is recognised as long as we are in countries who recognise it (I think). We can use it to tell Longnose to fuck off.
Actually, I think we might be able to get rid of the new girl quite easily.We plug her into the plane and have it draw power while idling. If you recall, Mav was strait-up floored and combat ineffective for the rest of the day after less than a minute, an experienced combat witch was drained and who's to say this girl won't be down the second she tries? If she can't keep up with the demands before we even go wheels-up then there will be no choice but to send her back.
>>35819716oh shit thats right!
>>35819583Good intentions are meaningless when your methods are extremely broken.>>35819660That's a really good point.
>>35819659Many other anons have same idea, and I pointed the consenquences for pulling that kind of stunts will NOT light, and in first sentence I pointed that we better Wait and See.
>>35819732Which is likely one of the many things we will do, it's just Ghost can't post fast enough to keep up with anon.
>>35819676The best thing is: Matron O'Hare already spelled out that her chance at unifying the American covens is gone. Nobody would want her in charge of the whole thing.So she basically pushing shit for a lost cause.
>>35818621>[x] We could always pull a double switch with Davis and get her one or two combat flights, then pack her off.I will laugh and laugh and laugh when it turns out that she's perfectly capable and competent, and that there's no byzantine plot to screw over the squad behind this.
 So you want to use your why not all option now, huh? Well, alright.“So what does Admiral Nixon know?” You ask, looking for ways out. Ice shrugs. “Hard to say, maybe he signed off on the orders directly, maybe not.”“I can't imagine he'd fuck with his golden children.” You state. “He's made it clear he'll side with us in almost any fight.” She shakes her head. “No, but I don't know if even the admiral can kill this. Frank, this goes up pretty high, it may be beyond even him.”“Ok, so what about a double switch?” You say. “We put Davis in with Alyssa on a couple of those escort packages you've been flying for the Polish, bam. Combat experienced RIO, and we send her home.”Ice shakes her head again. “Not going to work, I can't stall for time that long.” She says. “They're already keeping an eye on us to make sure the second Davis gets her check ride up here, we pack Merlin off.”“We could send Clarissa.” You say, grinning. “Money down they'd ship her back in a week.”Ice shrugs. “Sure, they'd ship her back with orders specifically stating to detach Lt. Samantha Wells for transfer to VX whatever at wherever, since it's a fucking cover."
Orders are fucking Orders guys. The basis of good order and discipline of a fighting force is the understanding that Orders when issued WILL be followed. Its not blackmail, its what any commander would do if you have a subordinate who refuses to follow orders. You transfer them to another section. All this bitching will just show the higher ups that we are a squadron of whiny pussies who cry foul whenever someone messes up our perfect witch harem. (Remember perception is more important than truth). Even if we get our way I cant see anyone looking upon us favorably if we cry and bitch and moan like a child.
“How about getting help?” You ask. “Brigitte or Wendy, maybe? I mean, Brigitte's... well, Brigitte, and Wendy's a brit, right?” “Wendy's a pariah, even now.” Ice responds. “She's a good girl, and we like her, but they're more than happy to let us keep her. Something like this, she's no help at all.”“And Brigitte?” Ice hesitates. “Brigitte... I...” She shrugs. “I don't know, Frank. Witches from down there are strange, and She'd ask something from us in return.”“So?” You say. “If she could kill this-”Ice looks at you. “Frank, the bayou covens are known for poaching guys like you. They're big on the whole male magic thing. You think it's a headache now, wait till you actually belong to a coven.”  Worth it. Let's ask her. Besides, I kinda like their cooking anyway, it wouldn't be so bad.  The hell do you mean? I'm already a guardian of witches, I'm already involved.  Yeah, on second thought, I'd rather just stay a pilot and not get into that shit.
>>35819857> The hell do you mean? I'm already a guardian of witches, I'm already involved.Also mention Bridgitte's offer of a favor.
>>35819849except not really. Orders may be orders, but an order can be and should be flatly refused when it puts lives in unnecessary danger. Like this one does.
>>35819857>[X] The hell do you mean? I'm already a guardian of witches, I'm already involved.I have absolutely no problem with Frank joining the Bayou Covens.
>>35819857> Yeah, on second thought, I'd rather just stay a pilot and not get into that shit.Time to piss against the fucking tide.

>>35819857> [x] OTHERWhy don't we go ask Merlin what she thinks?
>>35819881What constitutes an Unlawful orders in SWQ land though? And is that even a thing since the concept of Unlawful orders comes out of the Nuremburg Trials
>>35819849Execpt that this is a classic case of politics fucking over the military. Longnose is trying to fuck us hard for her own selfish gain.>>35819857 The hell do you mean? I'm already a guardian of witches, I'm already involved. MASTER OF PUPPETS WITCHES
>>35819857>[X] The hell do you mean? I'm already a guardian of witches, I'm already involved.Ghost, I love SW89 and you write a good-to-great story with wonderful characters, but my brain is hurting from the feels it has right now.I just wish there was more we could do.
>>35819857 Worth it. Let's ask her. Besides, I kinda like their cooking anyway, it wouldn't be so bad. The hell do you mean? I'm already a guardian of witches, I'm already involved. she will owe us for doing the mission for her

And even without guardian duty, our RIO is getting fucked over. And being a breeding stallion for the bayou covens is small trade, at least we get good food.
>>35819857> The hell do you mean? I'm already a guardian of witches, I'm already involved.Bayou Coven might be able to help stop Frank's talent from killing him so fast, anyway.
>>35819857>[x] The hell do you mean? I'm already a guardian of witches, I'm already involved.I hate the politics-heavy threads, they make /tg/ even more retarded than usual.
I don't see how this would put lives in danger. Sending Merlin back could save a whole lot of men and women. Personnel swaps happen all the time, I doubt Merlin leaving would kill us. We should welcome new witch RIO's.
>>35819857[x] Yeah, on second thought, I'd rather just stay a pilot and not get into that shit.Because anons would rather actually belong to a Coven than admit they're wrong.
>>35819857 Yeah, on second thought, I'd rather just stay a pilot and not get into that shit.THE FAVOR FROM BRIGITTEWE USE IT
>>35819857> Yeah, on second thought, I'd rather just stay a pilot and not get into that shit.
>>35820009Honestly, I don't think you're in character enough.1. Merlin means the world to Frank.2. Switching RIO's in the middle of heavy combat is a stupid idea anyway. 3. Longstreet is blackmailing us. Beyond that, it doesn't matter to Frank. He's not that die-hard professional.
>>35820009While I mostly agree that we should give the new girl a chance, it's worth pointing out that the last time Fronk flew without Merlin in the back he totaled the plane he was in.
>>35819895>> The hell do you mean? I'm already involved.Finished up the art I posted a thread or two ago. Fully painted etc. Have a slutty strike witch.
>Bayou Coven>Voodoo witches...Why am I thinking they have some sort of pact with the Predators now?
>>35820037We haven't earned it yet though, we just said we might.
>>35820050It just takes one shared correspondence and her blackmail is outed. That or you know, do that special op for our resident Cajun for a 'favor' in return.
>>35820050There's also the whole link to the change in Frank's behavior and maturity after being paired up with Merlin compared to before they were teamed up. I'm honestly wondering if Ghost would give different options than normal to reflect that loss of Merlin if/when it happens.
>>35820091Then we do it, dumbass.
>>35820009Remember the magic AMRAAMs that decimate enemy formations before they even know what's hit them? And other magic powered things?We loose ALL but the guns and shields. It's a shit trade.And Longnose is trying to blackmail Ice into her pocket.FUCK THAT!
>>35820093>>35820102But we need ICE to know that. Which we aren't doing. That's my point, not that we aren't doing it.
>>35819857>worth it>already involvedWe're already pretty witchy anyways...>>35820009This is a good point, but these>>35820051>>35820101Are also true
>>35819952>>35820009giving merlin to longstreet puts the lives of spellcaster as a whole in danger - they all know how the frank/merlin flight team operate and fly - and can adjust as a team accordingly. They're in one of the hottest zones of the war right now, and you want to hamstring them by ripping half of their most effective fighting team away and still expect them to preform in the same capacity?It especially puts frank in danger by taking away what he knows and forcing him to relearn how to fly in combat. It's already been said that this new RIO doesn't have the same talents for missiles, despite having equal to better talents for guns and shields. Aside from that, think about the massive fucking depression that Merlin would sink into. Plus the thousands of NATO soldiers that Fronk/Merlin fly CAP for.
>>35820121Pretty sure that she just isn't as good with missiles as Merlin as opposed to being able to do flat out nothing to them.
>>35820164Merlin also has a host of other things going for her, like the magic sensors, ability to basically read our goddamn mind and the minor fact that she's the ONLY one who's been able to power Frank.
>>35819952Actually this is pretty good. We may be able to fight this on the grounds that it jeopardizes the integrity and safety of the unit.
>>35820216>>35820202Why is there no like button on 4chan?
>>35820202I'm pretty sure that Davis will be able to operate those sensors as well. And well, we don't know enough about her to determine if she power Frank either.
>>35820242Because that would make us not anon and require us to be like the unmentionable R place.
>>35820242what is this funnyjunk
>>35820146Well besides missiles she said to be marked better in her RIO training then Merlin though I'm not sure how accurate those stats are if you consider if their outdated or not. Also the fact lack of experience and we're not sure how Merlin can operate under another pilot. Or if they just stick her into weapons research
>>35819952I like this.
>>35820146Well said Maus.
>>35820216Not to mention the likely spiral of depression and ineffectiveness of Merlin due to her separation from Frank. Besides-Wait, could we DELAY the time in which the orders go into effect by saying we require Merlin to train her replacement to a minimum acceptable standard?
>>35820258Man, what do you have against Russia anyway?
>>35820267If they don't stick her into weapons research I will be immensely surprised. It's the reason why everyone's so interested in her in the first place.
>>35820251I was pretty sure Merlin was an integral part of them. Could be wrong. But most of the answers to any argument are going to boil down to this. Davis isn't Merlin, end of story. Davis would literally have to be able to hit Stalin in the eye with an Amraam from the moon, shit gold, pee aged whiskey and be able to get us anything at anytime to get anyone to think about Merlin leaving. Not to mention that Merlin more than likely will have a mental breakdown the second she's pulled from Franks side. >>35820293I like Russia mate, you know who I meant.
I'm sorry Mouse but I cant help but feel we are in the same situation the German pilots were in WW2. We always badmouth them for putting there Aces in combat every day until they died, while praising the allies for pulling there Aces back to train rookies. Yes, we would need to learn to fly differently.Yes, we wont be as effective in the short term. I know in the long term the US Navy/Air Force Aerospace dominance would be greatly improved with Merlin's help.
>>35820290Good Idea.On another note, Where's ghost?
>>35819952However this is a high ranking witch's orders so that may be moot especially if she has a 'suitable' replacement. Experience or not if on paper it says she is as good or better then Merlin then that is enough
>>35820202>ONLY one who's been able to power Frank.Actually. It's never been tested that well. There have only been two instances and both aren't exactly good test data.1. Flying a Tomcat with Katya. Not a good data point because it doesn't have the witch integration unit like the Wyvern and she had no idea it would be required. I faintly remember it be described as if Frank was reaching out to her for magical power or something. 2. The time Mav got in with Merlin's settings and it knocked her out. The settings have since been adjusted to not do that for non-Merlins but nobody else has flown with Frank.For some silly reason (I blame Ghost) there was never any thorough testing at Barin of what part of the Frank/Merlin team is most critical. What they should have done is have Frank and Alyssa swap RIOs and do combat tests to see if either pair had a significant difference in combat ability to the original pairs.>>35820202The magic sensors aren't a Merlin ability. They're a physical piece of tech she invented.
>>35820379SHIT THE MAGIC SENSORSCannot let people know.Merlin cannot leave. period.
>>35820379Yeah, but I was pretty sure we had told nobody about them because of how crazy that would be. And I thought that they had been adjusted so that only Merlin could use them?
>>35820428If we really had no choice on the matter and was forced to accept Davis, I doubt it would be too hard to adjust the sensors so Davis could use them.
>>35820348Then there is no reason to pull her out of combat right now, the war doesn't have years it has months before an outcome. Right now only the short term matters. If this was a long protracted war you'd be right but it isn't.
>>35820398>>35820398If anything else fail, we can always yank out the panel or the sensors for now.
>>35820348Under normal circumstances perhaps, but this is an open ploy by Longstreet to put her spy in the unit. I wouldn't even be surprised if her test results were fudged to get her in this position. And on top of all that Merlin wouldn't be in a position to help the US aero-engineering industry, she would be used as a political chess piece by Longstreet in her misguided attempts to establish an American Coven.
>>35820460Thank you, level headed annon.
[x] The hell do you mean? I'm already a guardian of witches, I'm already involved. You laugh. “Ice, I'm already involved, or did you forget? The matron London made me a guardian of witches, remember?”She nods. “Yes, but that's different, Frank. A guardian has the freedom to move between covens- so long as they recognize the position, they'll recognize you. If you were part of their coven, it's different, you wouldn't have as much freedom to move around like you do now, and you'd have their matrons over you as well.” She smiles, though it's a pained smile. “And, listen, having two chains of command sucks. Trust me, I know.” “Still beats losing Merlin.” You say. “Fuck, how long has it taken for she and I to start working together like this? We might not be combat ineffective, but no way I'd be able to pull another Berlin or strigon shootdown with this Lt. Davis, at least not for a while.” “You don't know that.” Ice says. “Could be they weren't just bullshitting us with these scores, and she actually is marginally better than Merlin.”Your flat look says all you need to- Ice eventually nods. 1/2
>>35820472>but this is an open ploy by Longstreet to put her spy in the unitBy all means, please prove it.
>>35820452>Letting Longstreet's spy use Merlin's game-changing magi-techHow's about hell no.
>>35820146Honestly Maus, we have HAD this coming for quite a while now. Did the people in this quest really think that Wallstreet would just lie down and take being snubbed by us without doing something about it?Sure it took her a while but she has found a really good way to finally hamstring us. And no she probably doesnt care about any of the reasons that you have mentioned for not tearing spellcaster apart. She HATES us, hates us with a passion. So at this point, now that an opportunity to fuck us over has just fallen right out of the sky with zero consequences, she is of course going to press the issue.This is going to go badly for us either way, we either go deep into debt with a BUNCH of other witches, whom probably have just as little care as Longstreet does in the end, or we lose Merlin. This will not end well.
>>35820428Ice just told Merlin to tell nobody about them. Which I honestly find kind of dumb in the overall scheme. They're a game changing invention that could significantly shift the balance of power between witches and steelwings. Which is probably why Ice wants it kept secret, as she is a witch. But giving even average pilots the ability to lock on to strike witches would significantly decrease the advantage witches have over steelwings. And continuing their downward spiral into irrelevance unless they learn become pilots
“Ok, look, I understand, they are bullshitting us. I know, Frank. But if the only option is run to... those witches, or go crying to Nixon, we're still in a hard place. We don't even know if they'd help!”“So we ask.” You say. “Brigitte hasn't left the base yet, she's back at the house. Call her up, see what she says.”“What about my position as guardian?” You ask. “Can we use that?” “I... don't know.” Ice says, hesitatingly. “We'd need to ask Rosalie or Wendy, probably, it's more of a European thing.”“Ok, so-” You're interrupted by a knock on the door. Ice just rubs her temples. “Ok, look. Go find Brigitte and Rosalie or Wendy, then grab Merlin and get back here in your flight gear.”You nod, standing up. “Aye aye, boss.” Grab Merlin first- you know where she's at, and you can carry her if you need to run.  Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay there Get Wendy- she's probably down on the pad, you can get her and Merlin at the same time Get Rosalie- she's probably at the house, shouldn't be too hard to find.
>>35820501>Longstreet's spySuuuuuuuuuuuure, okay, got proof?
>>35820348What the fuck do you think we were doing at Barin?God you're stupid.
>>35820515> Grab Merlin first- you know where she's at, and you can carry her if you need to run.
>>35820515>[X] Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay there
>>35820517You're an idiot if you think she isn't.
>>35820515> Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay there
>>35820515> Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay thereGive Ice a hug and tell her thanks for putting up and helping us with this. She's more than earned it for herself this thread.
>>35820515>[x] Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay thereThe others will be there later, Brigitte may not.>>35820460And further lose combat capability? You're doing the Russians job for them thank you very much.>>35820511At the time we were somewhere that the Magic Radar could have been leaked to the Roosikes.
>>35820515> Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay thereTime. Time. Time.
>>35820515>Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay there
>>35820549Buddy, all that's been presented to me is a lot of speculation and insults because I didn't buy into your shadowruns. Try again.
>>35820515> Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay thereAlso seconding >>35820555
>>35820515> Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay there>Hug Ice. She needs it.
>>35820515> Get Wendy- she's probably down on the pad, you can get her and Merlin at the same timeGo Wendy~
>>35820515> Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay thereIf we do have to whore Frank out to keep Merlin, we could do worse than going with the voodoo Coven.>>35820517>>35820494Her letter to Ice.
>>35820555Sure, why not.
>>35820517Go home Longstreet, you aren't fooling anyone.
>>35820515>[X] Grab Merlin first- you know where she's at, and you can carry her if you need to run.
>>35820515> Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay there....Should we apologize to Ice for giving her so much shit? I mean I think half the reason she used to not sleep or eat was due to Frank even if she didn't like him at all all the politics and paperwork that he causes.
>>35820515Here >>35820561May as well add this >>35820555Hugs make everything better, except political bullshit.
>>35820515[X] Grab Merlin first- you know where she's at, and you can carry her if you need to run.
>>35820593All that proves is that she wants Merlin bad, try again.
>>35820582Your condescension is why you're being insulted. Read the threads - again, if you think this is perfectly innocent, you aren't reading the same story.
>>35820555Hell yes.She goes through so much shit for us.
>>35820515Throwing my vote for >>35820555
>>35817577Tainting Morrigan with your shit art and quest? I hope you step on a rusty lego
>>35820515>RosalieHelp us with obscure witch traditions, Rosalie!Brigitte would also work
>>35820515>[x]Other: Yell "Little sisters assemble!" While thinking how hard you need them, then grab bridgitte. Or just get Wendy and Merlin at the same time.
>>35820644Youre trying particularly hard. Is there a reason other than badwrongfun?
>>35820636Yes, lots of speculation of born of the fact that she comes from a certain place, surely she's a spy!
>>35820644are you fucking blind?
>>35820515>[x] Get Wendy- she's probably down on the pad, you can get her and Merlin at the same time
>>35820644>>35820662Ouch... thats rough, mixed up his own waifu.
>>35820671Not the same anon, but it's a reasonable speculation based mainly on two things.1. She's coming at the same time we're being forced to give Merlin to Longstreet.2. It's been mentioned in thread before that Longstreet has a ridiculous amount of power in Annapolis because of her position there and her ability to influence all the students. Is it absolute proof?No, because that will never happen. Do I even think she's a spy?I'm at about 50-50 myself, there's no real proof, like I said, but the speculation isn't completely off base.
>>35820515>[X] Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay there>[X] Get Rosalie- she's probably at the house, shouldn't be too hard to find.Let's not try to send into a depression until we really have to.If Brigitte vanishes into thin air at a moments notice she needs to be covered first.And Rosalie has the upbringing to actually understand this Guardian thing, in the end Wendy is just that pariah the brits didn't want, so she is pretty much useless in this political bullshit.
>>35820649>Imouto Signal Activate!>Imouto Witches Assemble!>Jess! The Best>Merlin! The Whirlwind!>Wendy! The Every Ready!>These are the heroes that will protect Frank's chastity from the League of Lewdness!
We could leak the orders and letter to the Polish, German and French forces here and that would do a lot of work for us.
>>35820515[x] Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay there[x] Get Rosalie- she's probably at the house, shouldn't be too hard to find.
>>35820724I'll admit to near passing out from laughing at this. And that's not hyperbole either.
>>35820724>Wendy>protecting fronk's chastityWENDY A SLUT
>>35820671Look anon, during Frank's excursion it was made clear that the pretty much every witch to come out of Annapolis believed whatever Longstreet was saying about us unquestionably. Whoever she puts with our squad is all but guaranteed to be inclined to prioritize her orders over our squad, and will be passing on everything she sees and hears back to her Matron.
>>35820724>These are the heroes that will protect Frank's chastity from the League of Lewdness!Jess would sell our chastity to Slider for a cup of coffee. I wouldn't complain.
>>35820729No, just spread the scuttlebug to the ground crew and tell them to spread to the grunts.The howls of protests should be loud and long and extremely vulgar.
>>35820724I won't lie. If this was a show I'd watch it every morning with a bowl of cereal.
>>35820748blah blah blah trial by fire when new girl realizes she has to re-evaluate her loyalties and becomes more loyal to the team and not her crusty old gramma back at academy blah blah blah.Let's just keep Merlin and skip going through those motions.
>>35820724But Wendy probably wants to Hold hands and cuddle with Frank.
>>35820724>Jess! The Best
>>35820711Do I think that she's completely innocent and pure?No, as there's reasonable expectation that she's influenced in some way by Longstreet.But that's a far cry from outright damning her from the start because she came from a certain place. People need to get their heads out of their asses and at least talk to the girl before making any concrete judgments.>>35820748Oh boo, we got a couple of glares, that obviously means that Longstreet has martian mind control rays at her command!
>>35820748>pretty much every witch to come out of Annapolis believed whatever Longstreet was saying about us unquestionably.Not that Anon but I was thinking about that the other day and thought that some of them could have been angry at us for pissing off Longstreet further and putting her in a worst mood making her a bigger cunt.
>>35820795Which is what a lot of us are advocating, the wait and see on her personally. It's just the whole thing with "Merlin leaving right then" that we have an issue with.
>>35820724>"Imouto Merlin. Status report.">"According to the readings on my scouter, it seems that there is a high probability of sexual tension occurring in Frank's proximity in the next thirty minutes!">"Hmm... what should we do? Imouto Jess?">"If I use my Imouto-Tackle at just the right opportunity, the Lewdness readings should drop right down, only to be replaced with brotherly concern and affection towards me! Err... us!">"Hmm... We'll talk about this later, Imouto Jess, but the plan sounds sound. Imouto Witches, Kawaii Up and Roll Out!">*Go! Go! Imouto Rangers! GO!*
>>35820748>pretty much every witch to come out of Annapolis believed whatever Longstreet was saying about us unquestionablyAnd they would be right. If those witches believed in Longstreet's big United Witches Coven idea, they had every right to be pissed at us, because we HAVE been undermining that at every turn.
>>35820893The way things are going, they will be getting their United Witches Coven, it'll just be under the leadership of the Louisiana Covens. Which I guess would make them French Covens. Perrine will be their lord and master.
>>35820724>>Jess! The BestI think I knew who wrote the script.
>>35820880I want to hurt you now for some unknown reason...
>>35820973>Perrine will be their lord and master.>lord and master>LORD2 things. First, is Perrine hiding something?Second: Lords? in MY America?FUCK NO
>>35821025>he doesn't know about Emperor Norton
>>35820992It's Imouto Rainbow!
>>35820973what about Matron O'Hare we did say we trust her she could you not the witches
>>35821025If you want to avoid lords in america you'll continue disrupting any attempts at coven formation, leaving witchery to military and corporate entities.
>>35821025Actually Perrine is well liked and Loved if I remember one of the captions.
>>35820893We haven't done jack to undermine an American Coven, at the very least not directly. Even then that was under orders, if you're referring to the Barin escapade. The only other thing we've done that could possibly be construed as such was forcing Longstreet to stop blackmailing Ice with her own birth certificate.
>>35821025ITS BIG! ITS HARD! AND ITS OUT OF CONTROL!
Whew, I managed to catch up! Hey, guys, what's going so far...>Longstreet power playMust... control... urge to froth... from rabid fury...>[X] Grab Merlin first- you know where she's at, and you can carry her if you need to run.
>>35821055Nobody likes Perrine.Not even Kota

>>35821045SEND FOR THE MAN!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfWGdN-BX0Q
>>35821043I just had the amusing mental image of Frank and his family being able to trace lineage back to Emperor Norton. I think if I remember right that the man died without any heirs, but the mental image amuses me too much.
if frank only had geass
>>35821063what about matron O'Hare we could back her when a they talk about uniting the covens
>>35821135He would probably end up using it to get extra ice cream/food rations. Frank's no Suzaku or Lelouch.
>>35820242>namefagging>like buttonfucking casuals
>>35821154>when a they talk about uniting the covensHello mario
Maybe this power play is because O'Hare is make her own play to take over and make a United American coven with her leading
>>35821208i dont know what that means explain pls
>>35821262He's making fun of your bad grammar.I laughed with him.
>>35821234She did imply that she may make a move if Longstreet's position was poor but I doubt that is what is going on, too many other things that it could be at the moment.
>>35821318nobody makes a power play unless they are in a corner or if they can achieve a long standing goal
>>35821318True but I think she is getting desperate. She must have pulled a lot of favors to pull this shit off though. If anything to possibly bullshit Davis's stats
>>35821275im tired typo's happen if you cant sleep and haven't slept for 19 hours
>OH DEAR IT APPEARS THE FLIGHT SURGEON WAS INCORRECT I FEEL TO WOBBLY TO FLY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
>>3582143610/10 would laugh again.
>>35821436Except then we would be likely putting the rest of the squadron into jeopardy.Nice effort for thinking though.
>>35821475>IT APPEARS WE HAVE MIRACULOUSLY RECOVERED IN TIME TO FLY
What we need to do is communicate with more people and see what our options are, THEN make choices.
>>35821475>OH DEAR IT HAS EFFECTED OUR WHOLE SQUADRON>SOMETHING THAT CAME IN THE MAIL IS LITERALLY MAKING US SICK
[x] Get Brigitte first- you know where she is now, but god only knows how long she's gonna stay thereYou stand up and, for a second, think about giving Ice a hug, you do appreciate what she's doing, here, even if you're both mutually frustrated- and more than a little angry- at the situation. You change your mind when she answers the door, calling for whoever is on the other side to come in. An unfamiliar witch walks in, dressed in an IJA uniform- what the hell an imperial army witch is doing here is anyone's guess, but you immediately detect an aura of... unnaturalness around her. Crazy, for lack of a better word- though you've always been told that Crazy tends to recognize it's own kind, so maybe you shouldn't say too much. Her red eyes size you up briefly, and she nods- you return the gesture, noting that she carries the matched pair of swords of a samurai at her hip. You frown, walking away- you seem to remember the tradition was killed in the late 1800s, but you're more than willing to admit there's plenty about Asian history you don't know- you were far more interested in more modern wars, to be honest, not the rest of history. Wars shape everything around them, you once heard, and all history is centered around them. You're not sure if you agree with that, but it's hard to argue. You find Brigitte in the kitchen- raiding the fridge. While Ice had told you she wouldn't be living with you, she basically is- camping out on the couch under a poncho liner every night, cooking and generally relaxing, from what you've seen. She laughed last time you accused her of being a bum, and just said she was 'resting up'. She doesn't even look up from the fridge when you walk in. “Baron.” She says, as a greeting. “What be bringing ya here now, hmm? Ya supposed ta be sittin out on dat concrete, waitin for dem raiders to show, oui?”“We- that is, Ice and me, we needed to talk to you.” You say. 1/2
>>35821401If Longstreet actually bullshitted Davis's stats then we will kill her on the ground. Hell look what we did to Mav on JUST startup. And while it MIGHT solve our problem for us (Dont want to leave the entire squadron Out of Commission afterall, but then this IS Longstreet), it would hurt Frank to do so in far worse ways than outright losing Merlin would. He is ALREADY having nightmares.
>>35821501>Polish and German Airforces quarantine us until further notice>NO ONE ENTERS OR LEAVES>Fronk adds "The Flying Plague" to his list of titles
>>35820535>What the fuck do you think we were doing at Barin?Doing everything we possibly could to not be accurately tested and examined, even with the base doctors on-staff to check over our physicals before and after flights for both Merlin and Frank, doing everything we could to not actually do real testing except to fly against the aggressor witches.
“I jus bet ya do.” She says, standing up and closing the fridge door with a bump of her hip. “And maman, she be sharin, but I don't be knowin if de white witch be able to keep up, oui?” She grins. “We might be leavin her behind and out of breath, you an me.”You shake your head. “Not about that.” “Ah. Ya thought about what I be askin, den?” She asks. You nod. “Merci, baron. I be along, let maman get her choos. Don need ta be walkin around barefeet heah, too many rocks. Not like de dirt back home.”The two of you make your way over to the pad, where Wendy sits with Katya and Merlin- the last in the wyvern, the other two in folding lawn chairs, next to their striker racks, behind your jet's intakes. “Frank!” Merlin calls out, causing the other two to look up. “Brigitte!” “Heya kiddo.” You say. “Mind hopping up with us to Ice's office?” “W-what's wrong?” She asks, climbing out of the cockpit- barefoot, you notice. You shake your head. “it's- let's not talk about it here, ok? Could be nothing.” You say. “O-ok, Frank.” She responds, smiling. “C-can you carry me? T-the ground here has too many rocks!” You laugh at her unknowing echo of Brigtte's sentiments. “Do you require myself or Wendy?” Katya asks, from her seat. “I would prefer us to stay here, we cannot be all away if there is a scramble.”  Yeah, I need Wendy real fast. We'll be down soon. Do you mind coming along real quick? Wendy can hold down the fort.  No, it's ok, we've got it.
>>35821514>PSYCHOMOTOQuickly! Seduce her!
>>35821532>not carrying a basket hilt claymore and a katana>IJN family joining the IJAI doubt it
>>35821549> Yeah, I need Wendy real fast. We'll be down soon.>>35821554I don't think it works like that Fapfic.
>>35821549> Yeah, I need Wendy real fast. We'll be down soon.
>>35821549>[X] Do you mind coming along real quick? Wendy can hold down the fort.Maybe Katya can hook us up with the Russian witches.
>>35821549> Do you mind coming along real quick? Wendy can hold down the fort.i need the best witch
>>35821574Good point.Hope that she seduces us!
>>35821549> No, it's ok, we've got it.I don't know what Wendy could do to help with this right now, best keep it on a need to know basis.Also;>PSYCHOMOTOFucking run Frank, run till they cannot find you.
>>35821549> Do you mind coming along real quick? Wendy can hold down the fort.The more we've got to work with the better. Maybe Katya (through GHOST) knows something we missed.
>>35821549>[x] No, it's ok, we've got it.>>35821566She could be Miyafuji's kid or grandkid.
>>35821549[X] Do you mind coming along real quick? Wendy can hold down the fort.
>>35821549[x] No, it's ok, we've got it.
>>35821554We need some Japanese in our 'murica-sponsored joint fighter wing. The princess moved on to do her own thing, after all.
>>35821549 > Yeah, I need Wendy real fast. We'll be down soon.
>>35821549>nah, its okayWe don't need to get more people involved than necessary...especially when they're part of the ready teamin before conversation is interrupted by sortie because we're supposed to be on alert[/spoiler
>>35821648>>35821642>>35821600>>35821587Not going to say you're wrong, but didn't Ice ask for Wendy?
>>35821549> No, it's ok, we've got it.Nothing really either of them can do, and Katya's right. We need to leave a scramble fight available.
>>35821549[x] Yeah, I need Wendy real fast. We'll be down soon.
>>35821549> Yeah, I need Wendy real fast. We'll be down soon.Please
>>35821549> No, it's ok, we've got it.
>>35821549> Do you mind coming along real quick? Wendy can hold down the fort.
>>35821668>You're interrupted by a knock on the door. Ice just rubs her temples. “Ok, look. Go find Brigitte and Rosalie or Wendy, then grab Merlin and get back here in your flight gear.”
>>35821549>[x] Do you mind coming along real quick? Wendy can hold down the fort.
>>35821668We could get Rosalie instead of Wendy; Ice just needs a European Witch to explain the details of what being a Guardian entails.
>>35821668no she said wendy is effectively useless for this problem
>>35821643Miyafuji was also IJN, though not nearly as fanatical as Sakamoto. I'm not quite sure how it is in this timeline (probably not much better because of Yamamoto's actions) but the hatred/rivalry between the IJN and the IJA made US service rivalries look like incredible friendships
>>35821668Not really. >“Wendy's a pariah, even now.” Ice responds. “She's a good girl, and we like her, but they're more than happy to let us keep her. Something like this, she's no help at all.”Rosalie would be more helpful with European traditions, and she's not here. Katya might have a new suggestion.
>>35821673Now i have this weird idea that Tarin, Spiegel and Bridgitte keep contact to each other to keep eyes on Bishops.And with this IG witch... add Jess on it too.
>>35821704Rosalie would help us more than Wendy. The only way I can see Wendy helping us is if somehow magically her family has any left over pull to come out of left field with.
Wonder if we can get Longstreet canned for personally fucking with the most combat-effective team on the Front.
>>35821549 Do you mind coming along real quick? Wendy can hold down the fort.
>>35821722I just want to know why an IJA witch is reporting to Ice of all people.
>>35821752>That much power.>TouchableHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>35821549> Yeah, I need Wendy real fast. We'll be down soon.Wendy a best
>>35821735>We wrote the book on trying to torpedo pilot/witch relations and by jove we're not about to let some American bint take that!!
>>35821763Can't President McAwesome get us out of this?
>>35821549>> No, it's ok, we've got it.
>>35821787>>35821735... Crazy enough to work? When all else fails, bounce witches?
No matter how good the new witch is, she won't have the connection to Frank that lets Merlin draw on his power. That plane is going to suck her dry and spit her out. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
>>35821711>druggy soviet witchesNOOOOOOOOOOPE!
>>35821796Bush senior is President McAwesome?>>35821758It is interesting that they sent a IJA witch, maybe they wanted to get rid of her for being too crazy for the Japanese.
>>35821845SEND US YOUR CRAZY BITCHES! FRANK CAN BREAK EM!
>>35821845>too crazyThis is not a thing for the Japanese military
>>35821845>>35821866Frank is witch rehab. I like this idea.
>>35821845>too crazy for the JapaneseThat right there is some off the charts level crazy. Like, make Young look like a well balanced individual level of crazy.
>>35821845Bush is not president here. It's a ww2 aviator guy (not Young).
>>35821890But Young is rather well balanced for everything he's going through. >>35821896Yeah, Bush Senior, who flew in WWII
>>35821896Bush Senior was a WW2 aviator.
>>35821887why am I thinking of "my cat from hell" now?
>>35821876Jess is in the royal guards. There are nuttier witches than her in the Japanese military. Think on this.
>>35821912OH GOD! shes going to cut our limbs off!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8Mq2WDzhgk
>>35821926I'm pretty sure she'll leave the important one.
>>35821926And then promptly get impaled by Wendy's bayonet, throttled by Sloidah's tail, and hacked to pieces by Bridgette and her tomahawk. Forget Guardian of Witches, Frank is probably in the safest hands of any soldier on the front.
>>35822030What are Katya and Ice doing?Each other?
>>35822030You forget whatever Konstantina use.
>>35822030it was a fucking joke....
>>35822030Konstantina will just a shovel, and Katya her hands. Ice will freeze the body
>>35822133>Ice will freeze the bodyExecution?

>>35822525>>35822342>>35822319> thinking I'm kotaGet back to pooping
Note: I just noticed we were on page 9. looks like this'll be a two thread night, huh?++[x] Yeah, I need Wendy real fast. We'll be down soon.You nod. “Yeah, I need Wendy real fast. We'll be down soon.” “Do not be hurrying on my account.” Katya responds with a grin. “I am sure I can handle it by myself.”You laugh. “I'm sure.”Wendy doesn't ask what's going on, instead standing up and walking over, her flight gear still on. “Shit, that reminds me. Gotta take a detour real fast.” You say, heading towards the support shops. It takes a couple minutes for you to get everything on, and a couple more to stuff the rest of your required gear in a flight bag and close it. With it in hand, you step out, surprised to find Merlin on Brigitte's shoulders. She shrugs at you. “T-the floor was cold!” She says, motioning you to come over so she can switch back to yours. “Ya know, you're kinda being spoiled, here.” You remark. “I mean, how many other girl's pilots would carry them around because their feet get too cold on the ground?” “H-how many other girls e-even have pilots?” She responds. Touche. The four of you head back up into Ice's office, where the Japanese witch is still sitting. The door's open, so you just walk in- the two of them aren't talking, and Ice is going over what, you suspect, are transfer papers. She looks up as you enter, nodding and handing the papers back to the witch. “Glad to have you aboard, shosa Sakamoto. We'll get you briefed in and ready for ops tomorrow. Till then, go sit out in the hall while we get some other business taken care of, and when it's done I'll show you to quarters.”The Japanese witch nods- standing up and saluting, which Ice returns, then walks out. You get the distinct impression she's sizing you up as she walks past- almost like a predator. 1/3 (probably)
>>35822592>shosa SakamotoPSYCHOMOTO CONFIRMEDOH GOD DO RAPE FRONK
>>35822517There's acceptable lewds, like Merlin and Kenji holding hands in public (scandalous) or Merlin riding Fronk's shoulders (don't tell me she doesn't enjoy having his head between his thighs.) And there's lewds like anything involving Longstreet that isn't hatefucking the bitchiness out of her, which is physically impossible.
Ice waves at the door and sits back down, her public face gone in an instant, replaced by one that's just... tired, for lack of a better word. She looks worn-out, like she needs a longer break than you know she can get with the war on. “Dog that hatch, then let's chat.” She says. “Wendy, what do you know about guardian privileges?” “What they taught us in the academy, mum.” Wendy responds. “A guardian, especially one appointed from up high enough, is almost untouchable- if a coven recognizes guardians at all.”“So what about Frank?” She asks. “I'm sorry to put you out like this, but it's not a big deal in the states, we don't learn much about them.”“Oh, it's no trouble!” Wendy exclaims. “I'm glad to be of help! One like Sir Bishop, well. His position was granted to him by the Matron London, so his authority only has two places above it- a matron in direct service of the crown, and the queen herself.” “And with other covens?” Ice asks. “It depends.” Wendy responds. “If the coven recognizes the crown's witches, then his status would be the same as it is in the united kingdom. He'd be able to take almost any action to protect his witches, assuming if it were challenged, he could support the action.” Ice nods. 2/3
“Pardon, but I tink mebby ya be forgettin something.” Brigitte says. “De covens o de states don't all be followin de same rules. Me an my sistas, we don't be tinkin de baron be anyting like dat. He just be... “ She hesitates a second, looking for the right term, then shrugs. “He be who he be. Dat be makin him special, but it don't be givin him no power, less he wan ta be tryin ta make it.”Ice nods again. “And there's the other trouble, the navy coven doesn't have an official stance on a guardian.” She says. “So it may not work anyway.”“W-what's going on?” Merlin asks. “I-is something happening to Frank?”  Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth) They want you to head back to the states and help with research and development at Patuxent river, Merlin (Leave out the blackmail and where the orders are coming from.)
>>35822622Now this is why we need wendy.She wouldn't have forgetten any of this shit since she'd have to repeat that shit back.
>>35822642> Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)
>>35822642>[X] Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)
>>35822642> Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)Be truthful. The full truth to our family.
[x] Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)
>>35822642> Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)no bullshit here
>>35822642> Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)Let's have Psychomoto kill Longstreet.
>>35822642>[x] Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)Normally with being before a potential op I'd be wary but I'm not one for telling half truths to Merlin.
>>35822642> Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)It's your favorite Matron at work, Merlin. Get mad.
>>35822642> Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)We conveniently have a representative of a rival US coven right here. I'd say we embleish how much of a bitch Longstreet is but it doesn't really seem necessary.
>>35822642>Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)
>>35822642>[X] Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)Yeaaaah, about that. I also want to advocate a group hug on Merlin after giving her the whole story. She's probably going to ant it. On the other hand, maybe we shouldn't to try and start weaning her off of Frank's presence. Ughhhh.
oh godremember how much Merlin hates Longstreet? And how unstable she is right now?Do you think she might kill herself to spite Longstreet?
>>35822684>Let's have Psychomoto kill Longstreet.That's the best idea you've had all thread, Fapfic.
>>35822702We're better than that.
>>35822684No.Let's have Psychomoto lewd Longstreet.Until da matron ahegaos.
>>35822722I definitely considered it waaay up when I posted earlier about her depression and seeing if there was a way to delay the execution of the orders.
>>35822722If she actually got transferred?Probably not, but she'll definitely be unhelpful for anything Longstreet has in mind. She'll simply be ineffective due to nerves/hating Longstreets guts.
....guys, i just remember something.Konstantina right now rather 'tolerate' Merlin. But if this transfer issue go thru and we ended with this Davis girl... Our performance is certainly lowered, and our Russian won't see Davis in good light.
>>35822724Pursuing a unified American coven is a lot harder when the other covens know how much of a fucking tosser you are. Just sayian.
>>35822642[x] They want you to head back to the states and help with research and development at Patuxent river, Merlin (Leave out the blackmail and where the orders are coming from.)I'd like to see if an unbiased viewpoint would agree with us, or not.
>>35822642>[x] Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)
>>35822642> They want you to head back to the states and help with research and development at Patuxent river, Merlin (Leave out the blackmail and where the orders are coming from.)we don't need to stress her out too much
>>35822642>[X] Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)>>35822722She just might unknowingly do a "Nina during the latter half of 0083 Stardust Memory", making the possibility of witch-Gato stealing one of her nuclear-equipped super-strikers terrifying possible.
>>35822729gonna write that now (actually never just like everything else because fuck IB)
>>35822729Only if Frank lewds Psychomoto first.
>>35822756Oh dear god, I don't want to deal with that again. We just got her to behave!
>>35822642> They want you to head back to the states and help with research and development at Patuxent river, Merlin (Leave out the blackmail and where the orders are coming from.)
>>35822642 Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)
>>35822723Longstreet would probably make Psychomoto eat her own sword.
>>35822782You mean Psychomoto lewds Fronk.
>>35822722Pull in the reins on the shadowruns for a minute there, that is a bit out there I think.>>35822760Pretty sure most of them know to a certain degree she is a bitch and there's no reason to lie about the level of bitchiness if they do know.
>>35822801I really don't think Longstreet could do that. But we have no basis for their strengths either.
>>35822801>eat her "sword"hue
>>35822804They're all going to end up on the floor/rug anyway in the end. Does it really matter which order or who initiates?
>>35822804Can Frank put up a fight that isn't in a jet?
>>35822804Frank gets in the wyvern to check a few things out, assuming that's Merlin in the back seat. Suddenly Psychomoto is ontop of him and the canopy closes and locks.
>>35822778>fapfic actually writingI won't hold my breath.
>>35822830and the rest is FAPFIC ANON job
>>35822722Hell no.To completely spite Longstreet, she'll ask Nixon to approve her transfer to Vought Chance to continue her work on the Super Strikers.Back in the US and untouchable~Because money.
>>35822804Poor Frank. Eventually he's gonna need a witch at all times to not get swamped by admirers.
>>35822836I write more than Kota.
>>35822870That's not saying much
http://pastebin.com/fPHSdiKBRead this, felt like fixing it up, giving it a rhythm or whatever, stuff like thatSorry if I'm stepping on any toes, I'll take it down if I am
>>35822870And the Sahara's wetter than the Atacama
>>35822862Who are they going to have guard him that won't jump his bones?
>>35822756>>35822791>BELOVED, WHY ARE YOU OF FLYING SHITTY>"Sir, did that witch just call you-">Oh they made merlin go back to the states, now the wyvern isn't able to stand up to what I can normally do>I AM OF SEEING BELOVED, I WILL DISENGAGE UNTIL SHE IS OF BACK>They're planning to keep her there permanently>ONE WEEK LATER>Longstreet found dead, chocking on a model tomcat>Box arrives on Base>Box has holes punched in it>Merlin is in the box, bundled up in a sleeping bag for cushioning>Other witch has vanished
>>35822827I'm sure, he does have brothers and a sister and I would be surprised in the whole time he's known Mav they haven't gotten in fights with others.>>35822848Defense Contractors vs a Bwtich, I wouldn't mind seeing that shit flinging contest.
>>35822848well, this still mean she won't together with Frank.Though i'd like to think PTSD Merlin in Annapolis only to visited by Stalinka that offers Fronk plushie as truce.
>>35822924She won't be with him for that time.And to keep that sort of star employee, they may accept her requests to accompany the equipment for 'limited field testing' with VF-3.And she'll still be doing what she loves.
>>35822910>sleeping bag>not fronk body pillows
>>35822957>Not a crate full of Fronk Beanies
>>35822957They didn't have time to produce enough, and Konnie was... unwilling to hand hers over
>>35822830>>35822957 Come on buddy. Nothing better than some good old fashioned high impact sexual violence in enclosed spaces.
>>35822982>How Cossack 2.0 was conceived
>>35822902Shark twins, Merlin, Maverick, Goose umm... Rosaline? Uhh Wendy? Yeah that list is depressingly (or maybe encouragingly) short.
>>35822974Which is why we would find Konstantina ALSO in the box, arms wrapped around Merlin and keeping her safe for her beloved. Because Konnie wouldn't trust just ANYONE to get the job done right. I mean, look at the mess Longstreet has made.
>>35822892>http://pastebin.com/fPHSdiKBOh wow, I wrote that I meant to write another one of those but didn't have the time. Thanks for the grammar proofing. I was never very good at that
>>35822998And yet their opponents is a Afgan War veteran, A Snake Lady with Benelli, a long-lost heir of Romanov, A Russian Yandere super witch and a Spec-Ops Voodoo Witch.Yeah, such a fair fight.
>>35823019oh god this sounds adorable.
>>35822998>Sharks>not lewd>MerlinOkay, this is fineNOT MERLIN IS FOR LEWDS>Mav>Not wanting Fronk>GooseWho?>RosalineProbably busy doing frog things>Wendy>Not wanting Fronk
>>35823060NOT MERLIN IS FOR LEWDSOnly with Kenji you sad, sad man
>>35823060we dont really know what mav wants she could be secretly wanting frank
>>35823060Sharks are in a somewhat committed relationship with another Bishop. Mav fell for Youngspawn.
Still, after all of these heat to this Davis girl...In the end /tg/ will ended waifuing her.
>>35823035Couldn't let a good poem waste its potential
we gonna need a new thread we at page 10
>>35823100>MavWhat is a threesome?
>>35823119Chill out guy, Ghost will post the next thread when he has the next update.
>>35823107Probably, depends on how she first introduces herself or how attractive she is.
>>35823130youngspwan dose have the hots for frank
>>35823107>going after Davis>not giving her to Merlin
>>35823164She has Maverick. Frank isn't a blip on her radar outside of combat.
>>35822992>text says "Pedophiles go to Gulag"
>>35823198>What is a cover story?
>>35823158Is there any not attractive young witches there?Even if she is a bitch, at very least /tg/ will make fafic of Fronk hatesex her.
>>35823198>Pedophiles go to GulagSo that's where she's taking Young?
>>35823230IT WAS ALL A LIE! THE REDS TOOK THE REAL YOUNG!
>>35823228Point. >>35823190Young is a freak, I can imagine her doing something like this.
>>35823230How Young do you have to be before pedophilia doesn't apply?
>>35823259Don't youngspawn wondering about Frank 'ordnance' when he is passed out?
>>35823264I don't gnome, ask someone else
>>35823268Psychomoto and Youngspan ambush frank is what I'm hearing.
