We're on the cusp the endgame here, so we're now at the point where we have to resolve a bunch of dangling plot threads, Loyalty Mission style!So which idol do you want to play as, first?>Pick an idol, any idol!
>>37146539>>Pick an idol, any idol!Morgan.
>>37146539MorganGoth loli mode go!
>>37146539MorganMight as well see the Russian perspective.
Did lewdbro or anyone make Christmas misletoe shenanigans story?I was considering writing one myself and a Valentine one but Warthunder is keeping me busy/
>>37146539ColeWanna know her reaction and how shes taking the adoption
Don't know why, but I having the feeling that Producer could be meeting the girl's parents.>Relative of Morgan tells her to leave Clover forever and make a decision as the new family head.>Julie's parents/relatives come up to us and demand their share of the money since they're "family".
>>37146539Get the most uninteresting out of the way first.>Niko.
>>37146684I'm more interested in Melissa and Julie then in Cole though. Also I thought we voted for the Producer Coupon during Christmas, what happen to that?
>>37146539The meidoOr Artemia
>>37146845The coupons will play a role.
>>37146886Will we go through all of our idols?Or is this the only thread we will do this then the end-game?
>>37146539You are MORGAN KALUGINA, a young Russian sniper and an idol for Clover Entertainment!You've just gotten off a small photoshoot. Just a few glamour shots for the latest winterwear. Apparently, your white hair and pale eyes made perfect shot for thick coats and warm hats. This was a solo job today, so you were actually by yourself, which was rather uncommon since you were usually with at least one of the other idols, or put under the watchful eye of the Producer or Jenner.>You don't have any other jobs today, let's have a bit of fun!>Nah, you better be heading straight back to the office.>Other
>>37147211>OtherAsk to see the designer, rant about the clothes effectiveness in the Siberian cold.

>>37147211>You don't have any other jobs today, let's have a bit of fun!Maybe she can go find a boyfriend.
>>37147211> You don't have any other jobs today, let's have a bit of fun!>inb4 We are mistaken for a boy. .. again
>>37147211>>Nah, you better be heading straight back to the office.
>>37147211>You don't have any other jobs today, let's have a bit of fun!>>37147252No, they dream of Dire Bears and anti-material rifles.
>>37147211>You don't have any other jobs today, let's have a bit of fun!
>>37147278We meet the Producer's Nephew on our way to have fun.
>>37147211Ah, today was a rare day to have a bit of fun on your own! Besides, if the Producer REALLY got worried, he could always just ring you up on Harbinger, or vice versa.You take a bit of a stroll down the street, grab an ice cream cone, and just relax, taking in the scenery. Through all the windows, you could see various clothes and other goods, now all on sale since the holidays were over and stores needed to unload excess stock. Perhaps you could get some new clothes yourself. All you had were the shabby casual wear you had brought with you from Russia, and you had a lot of saved up income. Perhaps a wardrobe upgrade was in order.Maybe even a gift or two for that nice Marine Scout Sniper you met...>Clothes!>Gift!>Other
>>37147749>>Clothes!Idol costumes just don't really cut it, you know?
>>37147749>shabby casual wearDo you anons think she has a full tracksuit?
>>37147749>Clothes!As an idol we have to look our best.
>>37147749>Clothes!>Gift!We're only getting him one gift, we'll just keep our eyes peeled while shopping for clothes.
>>37147749>Clothes!Secretly buy more goth loli outfits.
>>37147749>Clothes>GiftBut only if we spy something we think is nice while window shopping.
I bet P-san's mom wore stuff like pic related when she was younger.
>>37148002Sparky would make for a better Alice.Maybe Morgan should get all the other idols embarrassingly cute clothes?
I think if we do get a gift, we should buy something for the producer something as thanks.and as a smokescreen.
>>37148002Are you implying she was on drugs!? Fiendish lies!
>>37147749Hmmmmm, perhaps some new clothes would be nice. Thankfully, this street simply had no shortage of clothing outlets, giving you no shortage of choice. You spend the next hour or so just going down the lane, buying up whatever you found to your fancy. This was something you could never imagine doing in Russia, what with its drab environment and mood. Everybody there just took things so SERIOUSLY. Also, the dislike for foreign brands, too. That was also part of it.You've got all sorts of clothes. Dresses, skirts, simple shirt and jeans, even one of those weird sweaters with a hole in the chest that seems to be all the rage today. You also a got a few dresses of the... "frilly" kind. Not that you would tell anybody...You pick one rather nice one and head for the dressing rooms...>roll 1d20

>>37148412But Morgan has no chest to hold Loki in check.>>37148348It's rolls like this that makes me wish we had it for the drinking event last week.
>>37148514Get it for Julie then (or maybe Jenner and Lilith), between the three of them, they can each have a large cat.
>>37148327However, you get the oddest feeling. That sniper sense you never thought you'd feel. That sixth sense telling you something was not quite right. You follow your gut feeling you spin around, just in time to see the glint of a sniper scope.And you were having such a good day, too. You twist to the side just as the first bullet hits, punching through the glass window and burying itself into the carpet. No bullet report, not even an echo. None of the other patrons in the store seem to have noticed it. Suppressed shot. You dive behind a clothes rack to further obscure you in case of a follow up shot. Well, this was problematic.>You might need some backup on this one.>It should be just one shooter. You should be able to handle this.>Other
>>37148809>>You might need some backup on this one.
>>37148809>You might need some backup on this one.
>>37148809>You might need some backup on this one.I don't think we even have a gun on us now.
>>37148809>>You might need some backup on this one.We can probably handle it, but the Producer wouldn't want us to do it alone. Besides, sniper teams work in pairs.
>>37148852Our power armor is completely out of the equation, too...
>>37148809>You might need some backup on this one.We don't have our rifle, and why go it alone when there's no reason to bring the Tomb Squad to make that sniper/spotter team have a very bad day?
>>37148941Since the Idol Olympics are coming up, do you think Genemods are essentially the equivalent to performance enhancing drugs?If they are allowed, does that mean we also must disclose the what it does, and who made it?
>>37148809Eheh, perhaps you should call in backup. Sure, there was the pride thing, but pride could only get you so far before getting you killed. "Um, Producer?" You say over Harbinger a bit meekly, sounding like an embarrassed schoolgirl. "I think I might need a bit of help...""What kind of help?" Producer sighs. "The 'what kind of underwear to buy' help or the 'help I'm getting shot at' help?"Now that was unfair. There was only one type of underwear you could wear in Russia, and it was the kind that prevented you from freezing to death. You STILL weren't quite used to the pair you were wearing right now."The latter." You sigh. "I'm pinned down by a sniper.""I see." Producer says grimly. "I can get NEMO to drop off your gear. Do you need backup?">I just need my gear.>Some backup would be nice.>Other
>>37149282>>I just need my gear.Though if NEMO would like to serve as a spotter that would be nice
>>37149282>>I just need my gear.
>>37149282>Some backup would be nice.
>>37149282>Some backup would be nice.A sniper could always use a spotter.
>>37149282>>I just need my gear.Nemo sounds like an ideal spotter.
>>37149282>>Some backup would be nice.Some peeps to flush out the target and deny areas of movement would be nice.
>>37149282>I just need my gearNEMO can work as our spotter no need endangering the others.
>>37149282>>I just need my gear.'If we bring in too much people, the prey will bail.
>>37149282"Some backup would be nice." You say. "I could use a spotter, and there might be more than one shooter.""Got it, uh, let me check the schedule..." Producer says and you can hear him rifling through some papers. "Um, most of the idols are already out, but I can send out...">Pick 2 idols to assist!
>>37149637A sneaky idol?Cole maybe, depending on her hacking skills. SHe could get cameras to search for snipers.
>>37149637>Julie and Rochelle
>>37149637Rochelle and Julie
Incoming Tombs Trio. I feel like they take most of the spotlight when it comes to combat ops. (For generally good reason, but variety is nice sometimes...)>Rochelle>Julie- if her shield can stop a sniper round.
>>37149637>Rochelle>Sparky Spot them and flush them out.
>>37149637cole and melissa
>>37149637Whoop, this is me...>>37149710
>>37149637Let's get Rochelle, our comrade, and Julie.
This might not be a good battle theme, but it sounds rather cyberpunk-ish and Idol like.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAGzlZbPGWg&list=UU4L4Vac0HBJ8-f3LBFllMsg
>>37149637"...Rochelle and Julie." Producer says.Hm, that was good. Rochelle had a sharp eye and could help you with spotting, and Julie's muscle was always welcome, even if the girl herself was a bit dim witted at times. "All right, we're heading out." Rochelle says. "NEMO's still in gunship mode. You want to give your attacker a morning surprise before we land?"Hm, it was tempting, but blowing up a rooftop tended to attract all the wrong kinds of attention. Plus, you had your pride as a sniper to uphold...>Yes, please.>No, you'll take him out with your own rifle.>Other
>>37150040>>No, you'll take him out with your own rifle.We can do it.
>>37150040>>No, you'll take him out with your own rifle.
>>37150040>No, you'll take him out with your own rifle.
>>37150040OtherLeave Nemo onstation in gunship mode. Relay the shooter's coordinates to Morgan.
>>37150040>No, you'll take him out with your own rifle.>OtherLeave Nemo as is, but use him as a spotter.
>>37150040"Negative. Let's limit the collateral damage here, Tovarisch." You say. Well, in truth, you really just wanted to best this challenger to your professional pride."Roger that, we'll be touching down in the parking lot. Can you make it to the back?""Yes." You say and quickly head to the back to store, making sure to keep yourself obscured behind the clothes racks. Nobody seems to have noticed the hole in the window just yet.You see NEMO touch the Hornet down on the pavement outside, managing to maintain clearance from the parked cars around it. You see Rochelle and Julie, fully geared up, hop out, with Rochelle carrying a large and heavy duffel."Special delivery!" She smiles as she tosses the bag to you. You grab it and open it up, revealing your rifle, your jump pack, as well as the rest of your gear. It takes you only a few minutes to get yourself dressed and ready to go."NEMO, can you get back in the air and try to spot?" You ask."Affirmative!" NEMO says cheerfully. "So what do we do?" Rochelle asks."I'll need to set up on the roof, and I need you to spot for me." You tell Rochelle."What about me?" Julie asks.>How do you feel about getting shot at?>Stick with us and watch our backs.>Get ready to move. Once we confirm the shooter's position you go to ambush him.>Other
>>37150393>>Stick with us and watch our backs.
>>37150393>>Get ready to move. Once we confirm the shooter's position you go to ambush him.
>>37150393>Get ready to move. Once we confirm the shooter's position you go to ambush him.
>>37150393>Stick with us and watch our backs.The tank is there to take the hits for the damage-dealers.
>>37150393>>How do you feel about getting shot at?
One of the most efficient methods of tracking down a sniper is to have him shoot at a bait, but I suppose you guys don't want to risk it.
>>37150742Pretty much.Though to be honest. I was hoping to get a glimpse of Morgan's family.
>>37150393>>How do you feel about getting shot at?>>Get ready to move. Once we confirm the shooter's position you go to ambush him.
>>37150393"Just get ready to move. Once we confirm the shooter's position you go to ambush him." You instruct."Ohoho, I like it!" Julie grins as she cracks her knuckles. "You two do your thing, then!""Better hold on, Tovarisch." You say to Rochelle as you grab her hand. You then aim your other arm up and fire your grappling line, hooking up to the roof of the store and with a helpful burst from your jump jet, reel yourself up to the roof with Rochelle in tow."W-wow, I don't think I'm gonna get used to that." Rochelle sighs."It's fun, isn't it?" You chuckle before going prone and setting up your rifle into a firing position as you scan the skyline. You quickly calculate all the possible areas a shooter could have line of site from where you were in the store, but it's a big city, and there's lots of roofs and vantage points. You had to find a way to further narrow the search.You could have NEMO dive down low to get a closer scan, but that would make her vulnerable to ground fire, but either way, you'd stand a better chance of spotting your shooter.Or..., you could try drawing their attention toward you and hope your trigger finger was faster.No, not hope. You trigger finger IS faster.>Have NEMO try to spot the shooter.>Expose yourself to expose the enemy.>Other
>>37150885>Have NEMO try to spot the shooter.

>otherIts a department store right? With mannequins and stuff right? How about we try the oldest trick in the book. Have either Ro or Julie use a mannequin as bait.
>>37150885>Expose yourself to expose the enemy.
>>37150970This could work. Seconded.
>>37150885>OtherThe old ninja dummy distraction.
>>37150970Going with this.
>>37150885Wait, weren't there mannequins in the store you were just in? Now you have an idea...After a quick radio request to Julie, she "procures" a mannequin from the store and you winch it up to the roof with your grappling hook. You then dress it up a bit to resemble you and stick it up in a standing position.A split second later, the stop half the mannequin explodes into pieces. However, you pale when you see it. Not from the speed or accuracy, but from the number of shots. They happened almost simultaneously, so fast that you were barely even able to register it. There were THREE shooters.You heart goes cold. You knew of only one trio of snipers capable of such coordination. And they were your cousins.>Time to get out of here. You can't handle all three of them!>Attempt to communicate with them.>They attack a sniper, they should expect to die by one.>Other
>>37151261>>Attempt to communicate with them.
>>37151261>>Time to get out of here. You can't handle all three of them!Time to get a bit more backup. And heavy weaponry.
>>37151261>Attempt to communicate with them.What the fuck, cousins? Why didn't you tell me you came to America, we could have gone bowling!
>>37151261>They attack a sniper, they should expect to die by one.Her relatives can always make more cousins. Besides they shot first.
>>37151261>>Attempt to communicate with them.Welp this can either be a test of competence, OR they wanna kill us so they can claim the title.
>>37151261>>Time to get out of here. You can't handle all three of them!
>>37151261>>37151261>>Attempt to communicate with them.If we use radios for this, could Himarawi tap in and triangulate their positions? I'm not sure if they have radios though.
>>37151261>They attack a sniper, they should expect to die by one.
>>37151261>Attempt to communicate with them.I don't want us to be a Kin slayer.
>>37151261>Attempt to communicate with them.Let's get some exposition out of them
>>37151261>Time to get out of here. You can't handle all three of them!so, what do we know again about her family? something about a feud she was supposed to pick a side in? do we have any idea why they might be trying to kill us?
>>37151261>Attempt to communicate with them.
>>37151416You know how some families can get fucked up when there's a position of power (Murder, assassinations, etc.)?I think it's either this, or some way of saying that they do not believe that she's fit to lead.
>>37151261Well, if your family was involved on a hit against you, you had a very good idea of what it must be about. However, you never thought they'd follow you all the way to America...Not to mention ruining your day and potentially putting your friends at risk. What if Rochelle had been with you? What if she had been standing in just the wrong spot, or if your cousins' aim was just a little off?Unacceptable.With a growl, you key your radio to make a short range broadcast."I hope you didn't think it would be that easy to kill me, cousins." You say with as much venom and anger as you can manage. "You three came a long way home just to die. Tell me, what brings you here? Perhaps I will spare you my wrath if I like what you tell me.">roll 1d20

As you were talking with them, you were also silently coordinating with Rochelle and NEMO over the positions of your cousins, and now you had a good idea where all three of them were. "I got eyes on them. Ready when you are." Rochelle says as she stares at the skyline with her binoculars.Well, you could do this easy the way and just have Julie and NEMO help you take out your cousins.

>>37152367Shouldn't we secure Viktor and Antonin first? If NEMO's already tracking Illin, we have time to spare.
>>37152535That might leave NEMO vunerable.
>>37152593But he has a sniper rifle, while NEMO is currently a fucking gunship. And even if Illin is a top-notch sniper, there's no real need to close to a distance he can engage in if NEMO's just tracking his movements.
>>37152367"Julie, Tovarisch, can I trust you to track my wayward cousin?" You ask. "Just follow him. Don't engage him just yet. I want to see if he has a base and if he's alone or not. "Got it." Rochelle nods. "And you?""I will be paying my other cousins a visit." You say as you leap off the roof and engage your jump jets, landing on the next rooftop. You keep going, leaping from rooftop to rooftop with a combination of your jump jets and grappling hook until you reach Viktor's position first, where you see him cradling his injured shoulder. When he sees you approach, he tries to make a grab for his rifle, but you kick it off the roof."You've lost, cousin." You say grimly. You don't even bother to give him medical supplies, as you're sure he brought his own. "Just accept it and wait for help to arrive.""I suppose." Viktor grumbles and turns away. "I will not pursue you any further.""Good. I'd hate to actually have to kill one of my kin." You sigh. "And... for the record, you look nice in American decadence." Viktor admits."Why thank you. Now I won't have to shoot you in the kneecaps." You smile."W-what?" Viktor blinks."Just kidding. Just stay here." You say as you blast off again.(cont)
>>37152850Antonin is the same situation, though a bit worse off in the injury department, as he had minor burns and lacerations from his rifle exploding in his hands, along with the bullet lodged in his arm. But after getting outshot by you, he was neither in the condition nor mood to pursue you, either.Now all that was left was Illin and the other conspirators. The Hornet drops down from the sky next to you and you grab onto the passenger skid."You found his hideout, I assume?" You ask."Well, yes and no." NEMO replies sheepishly. "Come on, explain.""Illin has taken refuge in the Russian consulate." NEMO says. "I have already reported this to the Producer.""What?" You gasp. "No-""That's it, Morgan, pack it in." Producer says. "We're done.""No! If I break pursuit now, they'll just come back!" You plead."I'm not going to allow you to attack the goddamn RUSSIAN CONSULATE, Morgan." Producer says adamantly.>...affirmative.>I still have that Coupon.>Other

>>37152940not really, Consulate give sanctuary to any citizens of their native country
>>37152965Hah. That'd be cool. But probably unlikely. Also Morgan is also family.Well...so much for this loyalty mission. So close, yet so far.
>>37152935>"I'm a russian citizen too. Gimme a sidearm."Oh yell yes.Plus"So what you really mean is I can only shoot him once he's OUT of the consulate. that's okay. I'm going in after him."

>>37153016>>37152957>>37152935You dipshits do know they search us for weapons before getting in right? That there will be scanners, metal detectors, and the like...Fucking hell.
>>37152998I kind of hope Morgan explains everything to Producer and get a heart to heart with him
>>37153034yeah guess you're right, not like we haven't broken into facilities 10x as secure as a consulate and have a team of trained experts and advance technology. damn, if only this was a cyperpunk quest of some kind
>>37153073It's not a matter of security, it's a matter of function. All the places we busted into were privately owned and operated. This is a government facility that has very particular laws about conduct in and around it. Different scenario/consequences.
>>37152868"...affirmative." You say reluctantly. "Rochelle, Julie, you can return home. I will stay.""What?" Rochelle blinks."Wait, Morgan-" Producer starts."I am a sniper, Producer, but I am also a hunter." You say. "If my prey has found refuge, then I will wait for it to leave."Yes, Illin and his compatriots could hide in the consulate for now, but they could not stay forever. They would have to come eventually if they wanted to escape back to the motherland."Are you sure about this, Morgan?" Producer asks. "I mean, I can put your jobs on hold, but...">I'm sure.>Actually, I'll be head back as well.>Other

>>37153165>Use Coupon to have the Producer help her.To be honest I want to see Morgan and Producer to work together
>I'm sure.This works."Thank you for your care and concern, Producer. I mean it."
So what will Morgan use that Coupon for? >>37153243Also say this >>37153213Let's do this, time to see if Producer's boast back in the first thread hold weight.
>>37153243>>37153178>>37153197>>37153207So you folks are happy with Morgan sitting outside the consulate until undefined period of time that can range from 1 day to several years?Either figure out how to deal with it now or just leave it be.
>>37153165>>I'm sure.Producer response"Then you have my full support, happy hunting"
>>37153281yes, now stop trying to get people to change their vote when you don't agree with it
>>37153213going with this as well... I get the feeling this is not the right way to do it.
>>37153281do you understand how snipers work most of their job is staying still for hours to days on end
>>37153313I do and I think Illin does too. Good luck getting him out in the open in next several years.
>>37153165"I'm sure." You say. "Thank for your care and concern, Producer. I mean it."Producer is silent for what seems like a very long time, before he finally replies."Good luck."Yeah, you might need a bit of that. You glance at the consulate building in front of you.

>>37153395>>Just walk in and confront Illin face to face.>>Othercall him out, he came here to take us out and staked everything to accomplish that. he either faces us a man or returns home a coward unable to complete the mission
What if this entire quest was actually Producer telling his kid how he met Jenner? Ending with P-san reassuring them that they shouldn't be so nervous for the big day tomorrow, that her older sisters will be providing security and everyone will be coming to see her first performance (friends, family, Gen 1 idols) including us, her Mom and Dad.
>>37153520>What if this entire quest was actually Producer telling his kid how he met Jenner?which kid? cole, julie, or melissa?
>>37153538His and Jenner's kid. AKA (Jenners got Preggers)
Nah, will seem kind of weird to me.I want to see Morgan use her coupon to make Producer do something embarrassing or help her try to hunt his nephew.
>>37153395Well, it's time to do what you do best, and you sit and wait. Hopefully, when he saw the Hornet fly off, Illin would think you gave up the chase. Then again, if Illin knew you at all, he's probably know that you would never do anything like that.Well, it couldn't be helped. You nestle into a comfortable spot where you had a good vantage point on both the consulate's main and secret entrances. With Viktor and Antonin out of commission and in custody, you had no doubt the consulate would want Illin out of the country sooner rather than later. Several hours go by, and it begins to grow dark. Not that it bothers you or anything. That's what nightvision optics were for. Not to mention, the cold here was child's play compared to how cold it could get in Russia.Finally, your wait seems to pay off, as you see a large unmarked VTOL come in low and fast. Considering the consulate wasn't shooting the thing out of the sky, you could only assume it was expected to arrive. You raise your rifle and look through your scope, and see only one man exit. Uncle Cherekov. He was the typical large, burly Russian who's seen his share of conflict. He was one of Father's main rivals for leadership of the family, that was no secret. In fact, if it weren't for you, he'd actually be next in line to inherit leadership.Sometimes being part of a big family really sucked.And you see a panicked Illin dash out, running towards the VTOL. He and Uncle Cherekov appear to get into some sort of argument, but had committed a grave mistake, and were standing stationary in an open position, skylined against the background.>Take the shot.>Engage in a "conversation" with your dear uncle.>Other

>>37153612>Engage in a "conversation" with your dear uncle.Don't shoot. Instead put your laser sight on the uncle. One, he's in the embassy so firing like an idiot is stupid. Two do you want to kill part of the family. I mean this could be Illin being an idiot and trying to hurt Morgan without thinking about it. Three, There's still time to talk. Don't waste it. Besides being all gung-ho and guns blazing is American. Morgan is not. Cool logic and calculated decisions is her forte. Sniping too
>>37153612>Take the shot.A very specific message. Hand or arm shot.

>>37153612Your trigger finger hesitates for a second, wondering whether this is something you should do. However, you shake the doubt from our mind, exhale, and calmly pull the trigger.>roll 1d20

>>37153835>>37153842I'm not too worried. We still have the advantage
>>37153817Well, with Here Comes the Snow, that's a 12, so not terrible
>>37153808You fire the shot, but maybe you were too hasty, maybe you pulled the trigger a bit too hard, or maybe it was the downwash from the VTOL's engines. Whatever the case, your shot grazes Illin's right shoulder and he immediately dives for the deck. Uncle Cherekov ducks back into the VTOL while a squad of consulate security guards stream onto the roof, guns drawn. They block your line of sight to Illin as he scrabbles his way to the relative safety of the VTOL."Morgan? Is that you?" You hear a voice broadcasting to you. >Say nothing.>You might as well answer.>Other
>>37153861>>You might as well answer.uhhh...."That was a warning"

>>37153932Or fire an emp round from our gun.
>>37153955she.... does have the teleconference, doesn't she?ahahahahaha
>>37153861"Hello, Uncle." You say with a faux cheerfulness. "My apologies for hurting poor Illin, but I will not miss a second time.""What do you want?" Uncle grunts."For you to leave me alone." You snap. "I have done nothing wrong, yet you send assassins after me like a common criminal. And for what, just because of whose daughter I am?""It is EXACTLY because of your father!" Uncle roars. "To think that our proud family will be put under the charge of... of a spoiled little brat like you one day makes me SICK."Again with this FAMILY. >I will be the next head whether you like it or not.>I never asked for this. >Other
>>37153964Damn, we should have used an acid shot earlier. That would have been nasty

>>37154043"welcome to america. TASTE THE FREEDOM"
>>37153975"And sending your only children to take out a single girl, knowing full well they may not return, instead of coming yourself shows exactly the kind of leader you would become Uncle"
Did anyone else picture Austin Powers taking Morgan's winter Glamour shots?
>>37154082Oh thank god, I thought I was the only one.
>>37153975"I never asked for this." You sigh. "But I WILL be the next head whether you like it or not. It's a responsibility I have to shoulder, and if I learned anything this land of 'decadence', it's that one must never shirk away from their responsibility."Well, at least the Producer was good for something, you think."I see. What a pity." Uncle grunts."You will take your sons and you will leave this country. Forever." You say more confidently. "And no more attempts on my life.""And if I don't?" Uncle openly challenges you."I happen to know Baba Yaga on a first name basis." You say. "You mean the same Baba Yaga that took out an entire Spetsnaz platoon by herself?" Uncle tries to keep the fear and surprise out of his voice."The very same." You say. At first you though Baba Yaga was just a myth to scare the conscripts.And then you met the Captain."So if you truly do value your life, you will leave and never return. Otherwise, Baba Yaga might pay you a visit." "This isn't over." Uncle grunts."I don't expect to be. At least not yet." You say. "And I will be telling Father about this.""Fine." Uncle responds coldly. However, he apparently forgets to turn off his mic, as you can hear him speak again, a bit more panicked. "What are you doing? TAKE OFF ALREADY, you idiot! Full speed to the airport!"With that,t he VTOL's engines whine and as tries to take off. However, you continue to track the craft with your rifle.>Let it go. You got your message across.>Fire on it. Leave a little parting gift for them.>Shoot it down with an EMP round. It's the only way to be sure.>Other

Guys, the VTOL isn't in teh embassy any more.Do we really want to let them get away when we can drop them from the skies, and corall them with our allies?Would father REALLY want us to foist responsibility for our combat onto his lap, or take responsibility for our messes like a true leader?This is our loyalty mission. Our last one good shot - literally - at a good, fitting ending.The question is not to shoot or not.The question is do you all have the heart to push it to the limit? To walk along the razor's edge? To walk the dinosaur?
>>37154109>>Fire on it. Leave a little parting gift for them
>>37154182letting them go is fine, they get to go home in disgrace while daddy learns that his brother and nephews got their shit slapped by a little girl. It's the stronger political move. besides, what were you planning on doing to them once we captured them, killing him is off the table.
>>37154109>>Let it go. You got your message across.>>37154182You might want to get a bandage for the bleeding caused by your edginess.
>>37154227Well either way I hope Morgan uses the Producer Coupon to end the thread. Or something nice involving the Producer at least
>>37154109>Well, at least the Producer was good for something, you think.okay wow Morgan, way to just be a bitch
>>37154243I hope that's just Merc fucking up as opposed to it being a sign we fucked this up with our foot long vengence boners
>>37154132>>37154142>>37154243She was thinking that in jest. I guess that didn't come across that way in writing.
>>37154271Probably the former.
>>37154237>Going on a date with Producer in the biggest frilliest dress.
>>37154317Or have him help her hunt his Nephew. The most dangerous game
>>37154109Well, you might as well let them go, but that didn't mean you couldn't punish them for a bit. You resight your rifle and aim it at the VTOL's landing gear, popping off all three landing struts in quick succession. You wonder whimsically whether the pilot was any good at belly landings. At the very least it'll make their landing fairly uncomfortable. You make quick call to NEMO to come pick you up, and soon enough you're back at the office, now at an ungodly late hour. You didn't think Producer would be there, but as you get off the Hornet, you could see him slumped over table, asleep, a cup of ice cold coffee in his hands.Had he been waiting for you this whole time?"The Producer was insistent that he stay until you return." NEMO says. "Not even Jenner could dissuade him."Oh Producer... you really shouldn't have. You can't help but smile warmly.>He looks cold. Drape a blanket over him and continue on to your room.>Wake up the Producer and thank him for all the help today.>Stay alongside the Producer.>Other
>>37154332This is an euphemism of setting up an date / hunting trip?
>>37154342>>Wake up the Producer and thank him for all the help today.>>Stay alongside the Producer.
>>37154342>>Wake up the Producer and thank him for all the help today.

>>37154317Wait, is P-san wearing it?>>37154342>>He looks cold. Drape a blanket over him and continue on to your room.Give him a kiss to the forehead/cheek.
>>37154352Knowing Morgan, it might be both or all three.>>37154342>Wake up the Producer and thank him for all the help today.>Stay alongside the Producer.With a hug or kiss on the cheek?
>>37154342Brew a fresh pot of coffee, the good stuff

>>37154342>Stay alongside the Producer.
>>37154342>>Wake up the Producer and thank him for all the help today.>>Stay alongside the Producer.>>37154365But do this, kill/hug/cuddle!
>>37154342>Wake up the Producer and thank him for all the help today.>Hug him, or kiss on cheek if appropriate>Use coupon for this.>>37154317.
So Morgan wakes up Producer, thanks him, then embraces him in a tight hug. A few minutes later Producer awkwardly asks if she can let go.She then uses her coupon to take advantage for a prolonged hug
>>37154342"Producer..." You poke him in the arm to wake him up."Wha...?" Producer's eyes slowly flutter open. "Morgan? You're back!""I am. And uh, thanks for everything today." You smile and give him a big hug. "I didn't really do that much, honestly." Producer chuckles, humble as ever."You've done more than you know." You laugh and kiss him on the cheek. "You know what we talked about earlier? About my family?""Yes?" "I think I've finally settled on a decision." You say confidently."That's good." Producer chuckles."Do you have room for one more?" You ask as you grab another chair and snuggle beside the Producer, draping a blanket around the both of you."I really shouldn't-""I still have that Coupon." You say as you nestle your head against the Producer's chest. Dear god you suddenly feel so very tired."Oh, all right." Producer sighs with a smile and pats you on the head. "Just, uh, don't tell the other girls about this, all right?""Lips. Sealed."Then you hear a loud purr."The same goes for you too, Loki." Producer grunts. For some reason he just didn't seem to like your new pet kitten."Now don't be so mean to Loki!" You pout as you pick up the kitten and tuck him against your chest. "What has he ever done to you?""More like what he WILL do to me." Producer shakes his head. "Not cat person, are you?" You giggle."Not in the slightest." Producer laughs as he drapes a blanket over the both of you.Hmmmmm, perhaps today wasn't such a bad day after all.>And that's it for tonight! That wraps up Morgan's mission! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget PJ Witches on Sunday. I'll also try to run an make up thread for Ace Combat on Tuesday to make up for the maintenance on Friday!
>>37154478Daaaw, that was nice. Thanks for the thread Merc it was great! We will be doing this for all the other idols?
>>37154478This seem to be the most appropriate picture.
