So, 7 days to die is addictive as hell. I'm going to have to watch that, hahaha. Kinda cut into time I'd have otherwise used writing last night, though I should still have the next chapter of Raikov done this weekend. Hopefully. Archives here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Strike%20witches%201989++“Sir Bishop!” Wendy says as you head downstairs, feeling about like the walking dead and probably looking like one as well. You yawn at her. “What did I say about calling me that?” You ask. She grins at you. “Alyssa and Clarissa were quite clear, sir. I am to call you that at all times.” She says, grinning. “Would you like breakfast?” “In a minute.” You grumble. “Coffee first.” “I'll get that for you.” She says, heading for the kitchen. You'd respond, but you're interrupted by Merlin, who gives you a quick hug as she descends the stairs and then squeezes past you. “M-morning, Frank.” She says as she does. “H-have you seen Kimiko? I-I wanted to talk to her.” You shake your head- after all, you just woke up yourself. You'd reported in to Ice when you got back- she'd greeted you and asked you how it went, and even returned the smile when you told her that was classified. Of course, the joking had died off when she'd said that Davis was due in today, and that nothing had come through, yet, that would allow her to deny detaching Merlin, and that if Brigitte didn't come through, she realistically didn't have any options. The front has been quiet, at least from your standpoint- other than the occasional raid, there's been almost no air threat, though the Soviet military maintains powerful- and numerous- AA defenses with it's units, with just about everything in the book out there. It's made the front almost a no-fly zone for anything other than specialized SEAD aircraft, and has made the majority of the work fall on the allied armies. 1/2
Even the fandances have dropped off- their last sighting, according to her, was a little over a week ago, where they ambushed a four-witch patrol, wounding two, and then disappeared again when reinforcements showed up. Allied command seems to think that it's a result of the horrific losses they took in the attack on Berlin- analysts are still piecing together the damage, but according to them, something like 40%+ of the Soviet air force on this front was either damaged beyond repair or lost in the huge air battle there. While the allied nations took losses as well, the heavy air defenses of Berlin claimed a hell of a price from the attackers. Interviews with POWs seems to indicate they weren't told the defenses near the city would be so heavy, which partly explains it. She hadn't indicated that she had anything for you- honestly, right now, there really isn't much. The SEAD birds out of various bases, including Torun north, are flying almost nonstop, and you've already heard rumors of a plan to open up the front to strike packages and more CAS aircraft, but nothing that involves you, yet. Wendy returns with a pair of cups of fresh, hot coffee, handing one to you and the other to Merlin. Merlin sips hers, then nods. “T-Thanks Wendy. It's g-good.”Wendy nods and smiles. “Is there anything else?” She asks. “H-have you seen K-kimiko?” Merlin says, still holding her coffee close enough to her face that it fogs part of her glasses. Wendy shakes her head. “Afraid not. Do you want me to look for her?” “N-no, that's ok. I-I can go. D-do you want to come with, Frank?”  Nah, I want to go find Brigitte and talk to her.  Sure, why not? I need to talk with Ice first, sorry Merlin.
>>37206181> I need to talk with Ice first, sorry Merlin.
>>37206181>[x] I need to talk with Ice first, sorry Merlin.
>>37206154>Wendy getting Frank coffee and breakfastShe's perfect!
>>37206181> I need to talk with Ice first, sorry Merlin.inb4 Davis is Longstreet's granddaughter
>>37206181> Sure, why not?Don't see why not? I mean do we have anything pressing.Also I got this a while ago but forgot to post it but since Wendy is here....
>>37206181>[x] Nah, I want to go find Brigitte and talk to her.
>>37206181>[x] I need to talk with Ice first, sorry Merlin.Brigitte is good to her word and if what she had planned didn't work out she'd of told us by now. Still wondering what she has planned though. Best Night of the Week!>Alyssa and Clarissa were quite clear, sir. I am to call you that at all times.” She says, grinningHow did I know that was going to backfire?
>>37206181>[X] I need to talk with Ice first, sorry Merlin.
>>37206320FUCKING PERFECT 10/10
>>37206320Why is OnePunchMan in uniform, stuffing money into Wendy's tits?
>>37206181> Sure, why not?
>>37206380Because I asked for the scene where Frank threatened to stuff the money she tried to politely deny down her shirt if she continued to refuse.Also the Artist thinks of Frank as OnePunchMan I think.
>>37206181>[X] Nah, I want to go find Brigitte and talk to her.Let's find the killer kitten and see if anything on her side of the deal has come up.
>>37206462I like OneShotFrank. Good stuff. More please?
BTW did we give the stockings to the rest of spellcaster?Or what gifts did Wendy get?
>>37206181 I need to talk with Ice first, sorry Merlin.>recaptcha IceelIt must be fate! Let it be so!
>>37206154Where can I find these elusive Raikov chapters? Is there a pastebin somewhere? I think I missed them. As a bonus, here's a rifle the Russians made, its a full auto .50 cal rifle that can be fired standing up.
>>37206584There's only been one so far and it's at the end of one of the recent PJ threads, forget which.
>>37206181>[x] Nah, I want to go find Brigitte and talk to her.We should, you know figure out whats what before talking to Ice.
>>37206181> Nah, I want to go find Brigitte and talk to her.
>>37206584>>37206629http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/36632437/Ask and someone will deliver.And i just looking for them recently too.
[x] I need to talk with Ice first, sorry Merlin. You shake your head. “I need to talk with Ice first, sorry Merlin.” She nods. “It's O-ok. We'll probably be h-here if you need me though.” “Sounds good.” You say, standing up and heading back upstairs to actually put on clothes- you suspect showing up to Ice's office in a robe and your skivvies would be frowned upon, regardless of the dress code of your squadronmates. So dressed, you head over to the Admin building, noting the changes around the base. With the shift of the Polish and German units here to another base, their air defense troops have similarly left, and the US Army has stepped in to fill the gap. A partiot battery has taken up residence nearby, and a pair of towed 20mm vulcans are parked in sandbagged emplacements near the admin compound, their crews lounging against them. You nod to them as you walk in the building, tracing the steps inside to Ice's office. The outer office, where her borrowed secretaries used to sit, is now occupied by a lone Airman, sitting behind the desk and apparently trying to make sense of the old filing system. “Mornin, sir.” He says. “Morning.” you respond. “You get assigned to us?” He nods. “Temporary thing, I guess you're supposed to be getting office staff of your own soon.” He says. “The commander's out right now, though, if you need to see her.” “I did.” You say, “but it's not major. Yet. Any idea where she is?”He shakes his head. “No sir, but Lieutenant commander Kerner's in her office, if you wanna ask her.” yeah, I'll do that. Thanks.  Ah, she's probably down on the flightline, I'll go look for her there.  It's not that major, I'll come back later. (What would you rather do instead? Write-in.)
>>37207025> yeah, I'll do that. Thanks.
>>37207025>[x] yeah, I'll do that. Thanks.snektime
>>37207025 yeah, I'll do that. Thanks.
>>37207025>[x] yeah, I'll do that. Thanks. Slider is doing paperwork? This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
>>37207025>[X] yeah, I'll do that. Thanks.
>>37207025> yeah, I'll do that. Thanks.any one else think Bridget and Ice are talking right now.
>>37207025>[x] yeah, I'll do that. Thanks.Gotta make sure she isn't snacking on weird things.
>>37207191That...is extremely likely
>>37207219So that's where my cage full of mice went.
>>37207219aaand Frank become the morning snack.
>>37207191Probably, it makes sense.
>>37207025> yeah, I'll do that. Thanks.>>37207255>I'mokaywiththis.jpg
>>37207255Hey, snakes can unlatch their jaws or whatever. Wonder if a Slider can do that...
>>37207293frank`s is big but NOT that big for that....oh, you talking about vore?
>>37207379Hahahaha, My first thought was literally slider eating him whole but not his mini me....
>>37207025] yeah, I'll do that. ThanksTime to sneaky snake
>>37207379I'm just saying imagine what she can do if she can do that? But yes when you said Frank became the snack I first thought of it literally.
>>37206524All I have is Decu requested work.Sorry.
[x] yeah, I'll do that. Thanks. You nod, knocking on Slider's door. “Yeah, I'll do just that. Thanks.” He nods as you step into the XO's office- to find her actually sitting at her desk, handling some paperwork of her own. “Close that hatch.” She says without looking up. “I got a reputation to keep.” You laugh, closing it and taking a seat in one of the chairs on the other side of the desk. She sets down her pen and looks up at you. “And that means you keep your damn mouth shut. You saw nothing, you hear me?” You grin, but nod. “I saw absolutely nothing.” “Good.” She says. “I'm glad we agree. So what's up.” You shrug. “Been gone for a while, trying to get caught up.” She shoves a three ring binder at you. “There's the intel reports, you can read 'em yourself.” You laugh. “Anything new here?” She shakes her head. “Not really. The air force pukes are alright, for air force pukes. That colonel's mellowed, guess she just needed a lay.” She pauses. “She needed it bad. Jesus.” You laugh as she continues. “Other than that? Eh, same shit. We've been mounting BARCAPs with the other units in the AO, but the front is almost purely a ground show. Can't get CAS in to support, they've got too much shit on the other side of the line, and the new SA-20s they're fielding are fucking lethal.” She pauses. “To everyone. The Polish lost a girl to them a couple days ago.” “Ouch.” You say- losses hurt anywhere, but in the close-knit witch community, it's even more so. She nods. “Yeah, it's why only SEAD aircraft and witches are allowed up that far right now. So what's new with you?” You grin and are about to say something about you having to kill her after telling her but she cuts you off. “And don't gimme that it's classified shit.” She warns. “Just tell me the important shit.” Merlin wants us to get VDNI. Nothing new, really. Jessica says hi.
>>37207758> Merlin wants us to get VDNI.
>>37207758>[x] Merlin wants us to get VDNI. Oh and Jess says hi.
>>37207758>] Merlin wants us to get VDNI.
>>37207758>Jess says hi. Oh and Merlin wants us to get VDNI
>>37207758>[x] Merlin wants us to get VDNI.
>>37207758>[x] Merlin wants us to get VDNIWe gonna be cyborgs now.
>>37207758> Merlin wants us to get VDNI and Jess says hi.
>>37207758 Merlin wants us to get VDNI.
>>37207758>[X] Merlin wants us to get VDNI.
Oh yeah should we get the VDNI?Remember the conversation was pretty mixed.
I still don't trust that shit also I lost power last Sunday so I will day this. FUCKING NINJA'S ARE GOING TO KILL US!
>>37207803>>37207820ThisI feel like they can get worked in together well enough.
>>37207758] Merlin wants us to get VDNI. Nothing new, really. Jessica says hi.start with 2 end with 1. SUCK IT GHOST, I MADE IT AHAHAHAHAAH
>>37207758>Look up the SA-20>>37207931I think we should get a few opinions, but after what Ghost said about Merlin's knowledge I'm leaning towards yes
>>37207936The Tengu's have Imperial jap army written all over it!
/tg/, I'd like to ask you something. Do you remember what we did with Ice before we left for this mission? At the birthday party?
>>37207988im not for one fear i have if both our mids our trying to control the plane then one person might end up brain dead.
>>37207931The way I see it we need more hard data on it from actual use and honestly we need to work out our Gnoming issues before we get some that allows us to push harder.>>37208039Yes and?
>>37208039we pulled out a strap from our pocket and she shut down for the majority of the party.
>>37207931I want to get it, but the only person I think could give it to us is behind soviet lines and didn't give us a way to communicate (Putin's surgeon friend at project Lazarus).
>>37208039Yes I remember.Also does anyone get the Caption of the latest post? I don't quite get it.
>>37208085I don't trust Putin or the KGB
>>37208044The jack-out time is slightly concerning yeah, it took a bit of time for Laika to be extracted right?>>37208085I'm pretty sure we've got Top Men on our side of the fence who have been reverse-engineering the shit out of those implants
>>37207931I'm on the opinion that we ought to get more information, and even then it'll have to be some version that isn't invasive. On a more hard-line note: Does Frank really need another potential complication when his talents aren't 100% figured out?
>>37207931i say no. far too much unknown.
>>37208055>>37208072Good to see you do. Keep that in mind the next time you decide you want to blow off steam.
>>37208112I don't either, but he's got the best doctors for VDNI with him.
>>37208164then he turns us red with a chip in our brain!
>>37207758> Nothing new, really. Jessica says hi. Oh, and Merline wants us to get VDNI.
>>37208156I'm not getting your point here.
>>37208112We can mostly trust Putin until Stalin is removed from power. Right now we're allies of convenience and it would be no different if the Martians were actually going to try for round two. That also means trusting a spook though.>>37208148>Does Frank really need another potential complication when his talents aren't 100% figured out?That's the key question there.
I'm not sure why people are assuming that we'll be taking another trip to Siberia if we go for the implant. The US has doctors capable of this kind of surgery, they've had more than one example of the implant to look at in use, and the people Brigitte bagged were probably involved in the project's implementation as well.My biggest concern remains the gnomery and the 'safely eject hardware and eject media' time
>>37207931I'm of the opinion that we're already such an asset, any down time for us is not very good. Better to let other pilots raise up to our level while we stay in the field.
If we are going to get the implants now would be the best time since the war is currently a ground war with very limited air power do to the amount of AA the Russians are using.
>>37208290You're now manually realizing that everyone who attains Ace of Aces status gets rotated back to the mainland PDQ to run flight school for the newbies.
>>37208282People probably aren't thinking in regards to the surgery.>>37208290>Better to let other pilots raise up to our level That's a pretty good point, we can always use more avatars of death along side us in the sky.
>>37208244>wind somebody up to the point of practically offering to be their Dom>turn around and fuck another woman behind her backIt's not like we don't know how she feels about us.
>>37208381>turn around and fuck another woman behind her back
>>37208438nothing as long as no one finds out about it!
>>37208456I won't be surprised if Ghost has Frank be uncomfortable with the situation and an impetus to ending the waifu war
>>37208456Good to hear.
>>37208501ghost feeds off this shit and you know it!
>>37208438What's wrong indeed. Who needs even the most basic of morals?
>>37208501Alternately, inb4 Brigitte is currently pulling a Cupcake with Ice
>>37208456Those are fucking rape eyes!>>37208548Pilot!
>>37208381She'll accept what we do and like it.Cause she's a good little sub.
>>37208582I bet she's in to that shit!
>>37208548You're assuming a hell of a lot of commitment that hasn't actually happened yet. Ice is not our waifu yet
>>37208361That's what the US did during WW2, aye. That gave them a huge advantage over the Japs and the Germans, that they were able to replace their losses with well trained recruits. However, this is slightly different. This is a modern war. There is not enough wartime production to warrant sending someone this good(mostly because of some unknown talent that is probably not replicable by any more than a handful) over other (more conventional) aces.
>>37208582>we have literally hit the point of trying to cuckold IceReally? Really?
>>37208549>"If ye be wantin' to have your way wit' de Baron, you'll be passin' my inspection first"
>>37208622>weNah, that's just the chucklefuck on the opposite side of the 'taking things too seriously' spectrum
>>37208617>You're assuming a hell of a lot of commitment that hasn't actually happened yetWe were one step away from offering to hold her leash. We know how she feels about us. You can't flirt like that and try to pretend like it means nothing.
>>37208548Yeah and we all know how that ended, eh Makoto?Are people still upset about the whole sleeping with Brigette thing?
>>37208678I got the harem end, don't know about you.
>>37208678nothing can be done to CHANGE it but I was against it when it happened. No real reason to complain about it now though. The past is the past, deal with the present
>>37208678>Are people still upset about the whole sleeping with Brigette thing?
>>37208619Plus modern wars have rarely lasted long enough for that to happen sans the Iraq-Iran war and Vietnam
>>37208676If there's nothing in writing, there's nothing wrong.
>>37208712>>37208678Same with me, voted against it, but not going to bitch about it.
>>37208716Remember Cupcake? It'll never end. Ever. Even if in a few threads we find Brigette and Ice doin' it.
>>37208676Flirtation is not commitment
>>37208622Hey now, it's only a few of us thinking that way.>>37208678Yeah and while it wasn't the choice I voted for, ya just gotta deal with whats chosen.
>>37208733Just like old times then.
[x] Merlin wants us to get VDNI.You shrug. “Merlin wants us to get VDNI.” You say, waiting till she opens her mouth to respond before adding “And Jess says hi.” She chokes briefly, then looks at you. “Asshat. One problem at a time. Merlin wants VDNI?” “No,” you correct “She wants both of us to get it.” Slider shakes her head. “I don't know shit about it, other than whats in there” She points at the intel binder. “Seems risky though.” You shrug. “Hard to say, there's no testing I know of on this side. The little bit we've seen of it is pretty damn impressive-” “But we don't know what kind of risks there are.” Slider says. “Besides, aren't you good enough? This seems like a waste.” “Every bit counts.” You point out, and she nods. “And- well, like I said. We saw what it let someone do and it was-”“Like that matters.” Slider responds. “You can already do impressive shit, Frank. You don't need it.” “I'm just putting forward what we know.” You say, shrugging. “I'm on the fence, myself.” “Frank, you know what Sam's like with new tech. She loves it, all of it. Something like this? Shit yeah she wants it. Kids a whatsit. Technophile in the biggest way. But we don't know the risks, we don't know how long you'd be down re-learning everything with this in you and-” She shakes her head. “I don't agree with her at all.” “Like I said, I'm on the fence.” you say again. “It's not like we need to decide soon anyway, we've got some time.” 1/2
>>37208738>>37208726I expected you people to have a little more tact.
>>37208797>/tg/>tactYou have no one to blame but yourself.
She snorts. “Yeah, as long as they don't open up the Soviet AA enough to let in strike packages.” She says. “I'm not gonna hammer this into the ground with you, you get that I'm against it. Now what's this with your sister?” You laugh. “Nothing, we saw her a bit while we were waiting for transport back here. She said hi.” “That's probably not all she said.” Slider says. “But I'll let it go. Now, you got anything else for me, or are you just gonna sit here and stare? I mean, there's a closet right over there-” As much as I'd like to, I need to go find the boss.  Tempting, but I'mma go talk with Merlin some about this VDNI thing. You wouldn't be able to handle it anyway. You seen Mav? I kinda want to go get her opinion.
>>37208814[x]Other."How serious is that offer?"
>>37208814>[x] You wouldn't be able to handle it anyway. You seen Mav? I kinda want to go get her opinion.Mav time is good time!
>>37208814>[X] As much as I'd like to, I need to go find the boss.We really need to make sure Brigitte came through. Otherwise, Frank will have lost his purity over nothing.
>>37208814>[x] As much as I'd like to, I need to go find the boss.

>>37208814> Tempting, but I'mma go talk with Merlin some about this VDNI thing.

>>37208814[X]closet so about VDNI
>>37208814>[x] As much as I'd like to, I need to go find the boss>>37208928MORE DATA NEEDED!
>>37208928OH MY GOD NOSTALGIA BOMB
>>37209001Watched that cartoon all the time as a kid. Grandma had a VHS tape with three episodes- I can still remember the majority of the plot for two of 'em.
>>37209031Hell, I had a couple of the comic books of it. I loved that show and the comics too.
If anybody could be as much of a challenge in bed as Brigitte, it'd definitely be Slider.Or Katya. Dat endurance.Or GMILF Minna(Psychomoto is surprisingly meek)
>>37208814>[X] The others would kill me if they didn't get a turn the first time.>>37209217I think Wendy might actually be a contender, if only because of her dedication.
>>37209286Wendy would be the girl who was never pleased because she thought you were never pleases so she'd want to do it again.
>>37208814>[x] You wouldn't be able to handle it anyway. You seen Mav? I kinda want to go get her opinion.
>>37208814> As much as I'd like to, I need to go find the boss. Go Slider go~
>>37208814 As much as I'd like to, I need to go find the boss. Easy eyes
Ice told the other girls, didn't she. We're probably going to find all of them in our bed this evening.
>>37209626not like were doing any thing Merlin sleeps in the same room.
What I don't get is how Soviet SAMs always seem to be so much better than NATO ones like the Patriot.
damn 44 people showed up at one point about the same as wulin hero quest.
>>37209724NATO does better aircraft and air to air, started in WWII. Soviets were always more about mass warfare and the army, similar reasons.
>>37209724Life just isn't fair, is what I figure it boils down to
>>37209696Well, just cuddling is already big improvement.
>>37209031It wasn't grandma, it was aunt...barb? I think. I'm not sure. Either way I've got the whole series on a hard drive, somewhere.
>>37209724Soviets invested a shitload more in having a good IADS system for their ground forces, whereas the US spent most of the Cold War being all HURFF DURFF MUH AIR SUPERIORITY MUH USAF.Also a lot of US AA projects were kinda flops. Ref: Sergeant York.
>>37209780MOUSE! Are you going to kill of Jake and his crew or just hand them off to someone else?
>>37209836You realize those options are not mutually exclusive, right?
>>37209780I hate to be debt collector but...Tonks when?As now just some storyfagging is fine too.
>>37209836Read his twatter bruh.
[x] As much as I'd like to, I need to go find the boss. You grin. “As much as I'd like to, I need to go find the boss.” You say, standing up. She shakes her head. “That's another thing. You two don't sort yourselves out, I swear to god I'll spank you both.”“Promises.” You respond, grinning at her. “Yeah, you say that.” She says. “Every dude ever does. Hurr hurr what's better than screwing one witch? Screwing two!” She looks at you. “Go ask Joe how that's working out for him.” You pause at that. “Message received and understood.” you say, putting a hand on the doorknob, and grinning back. “But that doesn't mean I damn sure wouldn't try. You and Ice, huh?” “Not even you, Frank. Not even you.” She says. “Now git. I have shit to do.” You laugh, leaving the office and closing the door behind you and heading out of the office. Reflecting on it, you know, Joe really isn't doing so bad, but you haven't talked to him in a while. Either way, you figure Slider's maybe half-right, at least about the first part. You head down to the Hangar, figuring that Ice'll be down there if she's not up in her office. Your intuition turns out to be correct- she's by her striker racks, working with the ground crew on the heavily modified YF-23 units.“Heya boss.” You greet, walking forward. She half-turns and nods at you. “Hey Frank.” She says, wiping her hands off on a rag. “What brings you down here?” “Looking for you.” You say. “Mind chatting for a bit?” “Not really. What about?”  Merlin wants VDNI. What do you think?  Has Brigitte come through for us yet? What's the deal with Davis?
>>37209724NATO didn't really put a ton of work into SAMs. They had the advantage in fighters. The Soviet doctrine knew that, and Soviet formations relied on heavy SAM and AAA forces to cover them, while NATO formations relied on friendly air units. That and the fact that the US couldn't into AAA.Same sort of thing at sea. US had the edge in carriers, so Soviet naval forces relied on AShMs and SAMs, knowing that their naval air wings would lose to a US carrier air wing.That and Khrushchev was obsessed with missiles, so the Soviets pretty much abandoned tube artillery for missiles, so they had an advantage in missile guidance.
>>37209904>[x] What's the deal with Davis?Business first.
>>37209904> Has Brigitte come through for us yet?
>>37209904>[x] Merlin wants VDNI. What do you think?
>>37209904> Merlin wants VDNI. What do you think?> Has Brigitte come through for us yet?
>>37209904> Has Brigitte come through for us yet?> Merlin wants VDNI. What do you think?
>>37209904> Seduce Ice
>>37209904>[X] Has Brigitte come through for us yet?>[X] What's the deal with Davis?I was tempted to include all three, but I decided moderation is better. I limited myself to two options for once!
>>37209904> Has Brigitte come through for us yet?> What's the deal with Davis?
>>37209904>[X] Has Brigitte come through for us yet?
>>37209904> What's the deal with Davis?
>>37209904> Has Brigitte come through for us yet?Dammit Brigitte we've done more than enough 'favors' for you, now save Merlin!
>>37209904>[X] Has Brigitte come through for us yet?>[X] What's the deal with Davis?VDNI becomes moot if Merlin get shipped back to suck Longstreets ass.
>>37210034and now she wants MORE!
I still curious about this Davis girl.If we succeed in saving Merlin, we should keep Davis for awhile to see if she real deal.
>>37210146a couple of test flights to see sure but that is it.
>>37209904> Has Brigitte come through for us yet?> What's the deal with Davis?Aren't these basically opposite sides of the same question?
>>37210146I say again that if she's related to Longstreet I'll laugh my ass offAlso >Slider trying to get through to Fronk about waifus and him actually listeningcould it be? Could the reckoning be at hand?
>>37210146That I think was the idea, unless Brigitte's plan involves her some way.>>37210208He's thinking atleast.
>>37210241frank always has been he just keeps up an act.
>>37210208if she is related then we can teach her not to be a asshole think about it!
>>37210241>>37210259Not to mention with Slider he always jokes around with her about that.
>>37210344He's been serious a few times.
>>37210208But what if Brigette was Davis?
>>37210325Or more likely she just isn't an asshole naturally, is expecting Fronk to be hostile, and then we proceed to look at her, look at Wendy, and continue laughing at the absurdity of it all
>>37210358calm down M. Night
>>37210362that's why we play it smart and be neutral at first!
>>37210358Thanks god Ghost is better than M Syahmalan.
>>37210358I would laugh my ass off!
>>37210362>and continue laughing at the absurdity of it allAnd that's the moment Fronk goes off to be a monk as the craziness of sparkles is too much.
>>37210344That's because Slider is best girl
>>37210413Everyone knows this already
>>37210346Sure, but they always chew the shit like that so I think on both sides they don't know if they are joking or not.
>>37210487That's why I like Slider, you're never sure if she and Frank are actually flirting or not.
Futa Psychomoto.Yes or yes?
>>37210731get the fuck out of here /d/
[x] Has Brigitte come through for us yet?“Has Brigitte come through for us yet?” You ask. She looks around. “Yeah, kinda. C'mon, let's go somewhere a little quieter.” She turns and leads you out of the hangar, heading towards the base chow hall- it's open all hours, staffed by civilian contractors. “So, it's not something that blocks the orders per se.” She says, as you walk. “But they've been withdrawn.”“How the hell did she do that?” You ask. “I mean-”Ice shrugs. “I don't know, and she wouldn't tell. We're still stuck with Davis for the time being, but worst case, I can farm her out to the 3rd and let Colonel Wilkins get her some flight time.” She says. “It still leaves us overstrength.” You point out. “Yeah, but if it's Longstreet driving this kind of shit, that doesn't matter.” Ice says. “She's got the ear of a lot of people with pull, but she doesn't have too much herself where the active duty force is concerned, status at Annapolis or not.” “Why's that?” You ask. 1/2
>>37210731>Overconfident outside the bedroom, meek and unsure witchdick in the sackDoesn't belong here but I approve
>>37210731get out Kota
Ice shrugs. “Because Brigitte's a monster? She's got friends all over the place, witch and conventional. All it takes is one bad wiretap and boom. No more political career.” “Ah. So she's playing dirty politics too?” You ask. “I never took her for the type.” “Brigitte doesn't mess around.” Ice points out. “Speaking of, how did it go out there?” “About as well as we expected. Can't really say more than that, sorry.” You say. She looks back at you. “You know my security clearance is much higher than yours, right?” She asks. You nod. “And you know that kind of thing is completely compartmentalized?” You respond with a grin. She laughs. “Yeah, good point. So it went well, that's good.” She says, opening the outer doors and holding them for you- you return the gesture with the inner set. “So, anything else I need to know?” She asks, getting in line- you pull a tray too, having not had morning chow yet.  Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.  Nope. What about here? Slider says Soviet AA is murder.
>>37210818> Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.
>>37210818>> Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.
>>37210818> Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.and slider wants to spank us.
>>37210818>[x] Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.It's the hot topic at the moment.
>>37210818>[X] Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.
>>37210818> Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.And also looking someone else to test it first, maybe.
>>37210731No.Now go back to /d/.
>>37210818>[x] Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.
>>37210818> Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.Besides, Soviet AA was always murder.
>>37210818>[x] Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.Ice is probably going to say no.
>>37210818> Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.I bet Ice'll be pretty tore up about this, because>super-pilotvs>MUH PILOT
>>37210818> Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.Definitely leaning towards NOPE for me at least. Especially since Merlin was also interested in it for sticking with us. That's no longer an issue thanks to Brigette.
>>37210860>Implying Ghost isn't readying his tear mug for when each waifu warrior has a different opinion on it
>>37210818>[x] Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions.Soviet AA being murder is known to all of man.
>>37210818> Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions. >>37210731 If you are who I think you are, no matter what I say, you'll do that anyway.
>>37210889>no longer an issueFor now. Merlin also thinks the VDNI could reduce Fronk's reliance on whatever the fuck he has, which would probably be a pretty persuasive argument to Ice, since she's certain that it's killing him.
>>37210921lemme guess, the one who draw 'art' for Green lantern girl quest thing? GS kinda riled because that in twitter.
>>37210962I'd rather go for one of the voodoo options Brigitte suggested. No Martian Soviet Red tech in this pilot's brain, thanks!
>>37210979 Yep, I am betting that him or her.
>>37210962We haven't even tried the conventional methods at dealing with the Gnoming, so making the jump from doing nothing to 'lets get this bleeding edge medical implant stuck to our brain stem' is a bit much.
>>37210995>>37211226I was under the impression that those methods required a harem end. If that's what comes out of this discussion, I'm totally okay with that.
[x] Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, kinda looking for other opinions. “Well,” you say, taking a plate of ham and eggs- then motioning for some more scrambled eggs to be added to it- “Merlin's big into this VDNI thing, and I was kind of looking for some more opinions on it. I talked to Slider and she was pretty against it.”Ice nods. “Yeah, I can see that. I don't really know, Frank.” She says, picking out a corner table and sitting down. “I mean, there's a lot of supposed advantages, but the health risks are totally unknown.”“Could be nothing.” You say, remembering how normal and healthy Laika was, or seemed to be. Ice nods. “Could be. Could also do all kinds of things to you that we don't know yet. And we've never tested it with two people in the same aircraft before, either.” You shrug. “The reds were working with that, though.” She nods again, cutting a piece of ham. “So I hear. But their definition of acceptable risk and ours are two totally different things.” “Yeah, sure. But it was being worked with.” you say. “And Merlin thinks it might reduce how hard I have to push up there.” Ice pauses. “Does she?” “That's what she says.” You respond. “But at the same time, yeah, it could, but it could also give us a hell of a boost when we do have to go hard, you know?” Ice chews her lip. “I know what you mean, yes.” She eventually says. “What's wrong?” You ask. “If she's right-”She nods. “I know. But what if she's not?” “It's Merlin.” You respond. “When is she wrong about tech? Shit, you use stuff she designed-”“So do you.” Ice says. “My point exactly. Kid's a genius when it comes to this sort of stuff, shouldn't we trust her?” Ice looks conflicted about it. “I'm not sure.” She finally says. “Why?” You ask. 1/2
“Don't get me wrong, I agree. She's nothing short of a genius with technology. But she also always skews things. Like her strikers.” She says. “Magically, they're the easiest thing I've ever used. But they're hard to learn because of all the tech she crammed into them. ECM? Since when did witches have that? Missiles?” She shakes her head. “Part of the reason I haven't asked for more is how complex they are.” She says. “She doesn't always think about other people- have you seen her seat in the Wyvern? I don't even know if Davis could have operated it.” “So you think she's misrepresenting it?” You ask. She shakes her head. “No, I think she's just letting how she is color her opinion. She doesn't see a risk because it's technology, she thinks if there's trouble, she can handle it.” She takes a drink of coffee. “Maybe she can, but is it worth the risk? I don't know, Frank.” “That's about where I'm at, too.” You say, nodding and finishing the last of your eggs. “They weren't as good as yours.” “Wha- oh.” Ice laughs. “I haven't made eggs in a while, have I?” “Nope. You ought to fix that.” You say, grinning. “Here, lemme get your tray.” She nods and hands it to you. “So what are you going to do now?”  Go talk to Merlin more about this.  Go see what Mav has to say about it.  I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.
>>37211469> Go see what Mav has to say about it.
>>37211469>[x] I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.Haven't heard from Katya in ages.
>>37211469>[x] I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.She has the most combat experience of us all.
>>37211469> I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.i want ever ones thoughts
>>37211469 Go talk to Merlin more about this.
>>37211469>[x] I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.
>>37211469 I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she saysKitty katya
>>37211469> Go see what Mav has to say about it.Time for best girl
>>37211469>[x] Go see what Mav has to say about it.
>>37211469> I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.Two down, lets makes it three now.
>>37211469> I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.Girl survived Afghanistan, would be interested to see her take on this.
>>37211469> Go talk to Merlin more about this.Definitely a good thing to ask her is if she thinks Fronk can handle it, not just the both of them can handle it.
>>37211469> I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.she might be able to know more about the VDIN or get more info on it.
>>37211469> I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.
>>37211469> Go see what Mav has to say about it. Time for some screen time for Mav!
>>37211576Dude, she defected before the war even started
>>37211636If her mom's still around, she might be able to get more info.If not, eh, she's a nightwitch, she can do something from that front.
>>37211469>[x] Go see what Mav has to say about it.HA HA! It's Bro time!
>>37211469> I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.Haven't heard from her for too long.
>>37211469 Go see what Mav has to say about it. Lets talk to an old friend
>>37211452>but it could also give us a hell of a boost when we do have to go hardFrank, do you honestly think your body can survive going any harder then it already can?>>37211652I'd be shocked if her mom could get more info as I doubt Putin's faction has any part currently in the VDNI program Ivan is running.
>>37211469>[X] I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says.She might be more familiar with Russian safety standards.
>>37211768Why not? They have cybernetics tech out the wazoo; stands to reason they'd at the very least have a finger in the VDNI pie.
>>37211781>Russian safety standards.What's that?
>>37211768If Putin and friends have enough pull to requisition entire divisions of Russia's best (including goddamn Vampyrs) and possess cutting edge cybernetics then they have enough political muscle to at least have a finger in the pie.
>>37211833we are doomed!
>>37211814Vodka storage capacity
>>37211768At least, knowing Putin, he will already sniffing around on this VDNI. They might get better data than us too.>>37211814Meh, if it working as intended and not blowing its user immediately its all good to go.
>>37211833I love that song
>>37211791>>37211825Pre-War maybe but at this stage of the war they aren't exactly on speaking terms, Stalin likely has the VDNI program solely in the hands of his people. Hell the people the SEAL's grabbed are probably more knowledgeable about it then one of Putin's people.
>>37211833Fucking saved! My sides are in orbit!
>>37211929That's entirely speculation on your part, though.
>>37212052So is Merlin's claims that the VDNI will be just fine.
>>37212074Merlin's are founded on a detailed in-universe understanding of things. Yours aren't.Though frankly that's a farcical comparison to be making in the first place, really.
>>37211791Because it's not part of their mission. The whole point of all the augs at Megalith is to make crippled witches combat ready for Martian War II: Alium Boogaloo, why would they take part in steelwing R&D?
>>37212034that song will fit Merlin in the future but in a good way
>>37212052I'm going by the fact that Stalin was a paranoid as hell and that he knows someone is holding fresh troops back for something, so why wouldn't he take the major program that'll make a difference in the war and make sure it's only people he can trust? Why wouldn't he lock the program the fuck down?
>>37212144and after what went down you just KNOW people got purged hard!
>>37212108Detailed in-universe understanding colored by her personality flaws that make her lean more towards technology than the human side of the problem.
>>37212127Because they *had* steelwings. Remember Putin mentioned that the augs he was offering fronk were for their "best pilot" before he flipped to Stalin's side?
>>37212383And yet she still has a more balanced understanding of the overall situation than you do.
>>37212655>oh yeah Frank the health risks of putting something designed by Russians inside your brain aren't that bad>a more balanced understanding
>>37212699Which just goes to show how fucked up your interpretation is, doesn't it?
[x] I might go talk to Katya about it, see what she says. You shrug. “I might go talk to Katya, see what she has to say.” Ice nods. “Fair enough. And if anyone's going to know about the Soviet convept of acceptable risk, it'll be her.” You grin. “Among other things she'll probably have to say on the matter.” Ice laughs. “Yeah, I'm sure. Well, ok Frank. If you need me, I'll be in the hangar most of the day. I'm sure the paperwork is piling up, but I needed a break.”“I think,” You say, opening the doors for her as you leave the chow hall. “You're one of the only people I know of who think of hard physical labor as a break.” She laughs, waving as the two of you go different directions- You head towards the rec center, while Ice heads back for the flightline. The base rec center isn't that bad- a couple pool tables, a large TV, some arcade games. Along the back sits a piano, with Katya at the keys. She's not playing, just kind of sitting there- the room is otherwise empty. “How is it there's a piano at every place we've ever gone?” You ask, causing her to start and twist to look at you. You grin at her. “Seems like a hell of a thing to ship around.” She shrugs. “It is a thing among witches.” She says. “What brings you to me now, Frank? It is somewhat early to be alone togther, yes?” You laugh. “Anytime, anyplace.” You respond. “And no, I was looking for an opinon.” “Ah, this I can help you with. What of?” She asks. “VDNI.” You say, taking a seat nearby. “Merlin thinks she and I should get it.” “Hmm.” Katya says, standing and taking a seat nearby. “What are you thinking about that?” You shrug. “I'm not sure.” You say. “Slider's against it, Ice seems to be undecided. There's a lot of risk, especially since we don't really know what would have been acceptable risk for the guys that made it.” 1/3
She nods. “Ah, yes.” She smiles. “The western impression that Soviet engineering is dangerous and flawed?” “Kinda.” You say. “I can't imagine it'd be lethal or anything, but-” She shakes her head. “No, it would not be. At least not and still be accepted. But it may be dangerous.” She looks at you. “Pilots are expensive, even more than witches.” She says. “We must be trained, but it is much simpler and shorter to do so. A pilot, they are expensive, and a good pilot, like yourself, that is talent that cannot be trained.” “But what's that got to do with VDNI?” You ask. “You are not seeing it?” She says. “Nothing like this VDNI would be developed for mass use, yet. It is for the closest thing they have to you and little Samantha. Pilots they cannot afford to waste with poorly engineered and unsafe systems.”“So it probably wouldn't kill me.” You say. She shakes her head. “Or physically harm you, especially if it has been modified by western hands or with western oversight. Safety is often a concern enough to burden a system down to where it is no longer working or effective, it seems.” She says. “I sense a but in there somewhere.” You say. She nods. “Of course. There is a risk with any technology, especially such as this. Tell me, how do you think it works? One pilot, one machine, they are one being with this system, no?” She asks. You shrug- as you understand it, that's a close enough description. “But what will happen with two operators in the same machine?” She asks, then shrugs. “I do not know, and I doubt anyone else will either. That is the risk as I see it.” “Do you think it's worth the risk?” You ask. She shrugs again. 2/3
“I am not certain.” She says. “It could allow you an amazing edge in combat, one that perhaps does not require you to hurt yourself as you do every time. It could also give you nothing you could not already achieve and take from you the man that you are. I would not enjoy that, no one else would either, I am thinking.” She says. “In the end it is your decision. I do not know if I would take it, but I will not think differently of you if you do.” You nod. “Thanks Katya.” She shrugs. “For giving my opinion?” She asks. “We should talk more often, you would not be wanting them so much then, I am thinking. I have many.” “We'll see.” You say, grinning as you stand up. “So were you going to play?” She nods. “I had planned to. Perhaps you would like to hear it? My grandmother taught me the song. I am told her father composed it.” “Sure.” You nod, twisting around to watch her as she walks to the piano and sits down at the bench. You've heard the song before, you're sure, though you can't place it. It's peaceful, though- you find yourself enjoying it pretty quickly, even though Piano music isn't really your thing. The end is drowned out by the roar of multiple high-bypass turbofans- the big ones they stick on cargo jets. You and Katya both go over to the windows to see multiple C-33s in the pattern, landing one by one at the strip. “Air supply?” You ask. She nods. “Torun north is the major transportation hub.” She says. “But we are close enough that we can be used for overflow flights. I am thinking some of those are for us.” “Maybe. This is the military we're dealing with.” you say. “Our stuff probably landed at Torun North.” She laughs. “This thing, it is common everywhere.”Well, you think. That makes you feel somewhat better. At least the reds have the same problem with supply being strange and arcane as you do.
>>37212786>no Mav this threadGHOSTDIVA!
>>37212813I share your feels, anon.
>>37212786Thread needs to be archived, by the way.
>>37210896>>Implying Ghost isn't readying his tear mug for when each waifu warrior has a different opinion on it
That's it for tonight! Hahah. I hadn't planned out as much content as I usually do for this thread, partly because I was bashing my head against the desk trying to write the next Raikov chapter- I kinda hit writer's block two or three times on it. It's going Ok now, though, so that's good. Anyway, guys, I don't really have much for here tonight. We're back on the normal schedule from now, so barring any strangeness, figure on regular Tuesday runs unless you see something on the twitter!As always, hope you guys had fun, and till next time, cheers!
>>37212872Thanks for today boss!>>37212857All three kinda lean to negative though. No outright 'You should, Frank'.
>>37212872Thanks for the run!
>>37212872Good run tonight Ghost, see you next week!
>>37212872Good run as always Ghost!
>>37212872Thanks for running Ghost, howre those Raikov stories coming along?
>>37213089They're... coming. lol. I had massive problems starting this chapter, but it's going ok now
>>37213161So are Red and Raikov.
>>37212813Mav next thread, i don't guarantee it
>>37212872No Mav opinion Ghost?Also what about Davis, I thought she would show up this thread?
>>37212857I have my waifus but in this case this doesn't hold much weight, they have some solid opinions but overall not much detail that outright states no.Just a lot of Ifs.Merlin's no better.>>37212895Kind of.Slider was a no,Ice and Katya are on the Fence, I wanted to hear from Merlin and Mav though.
>>37212813>tfw Mav will never win>tfw Futa Mav will be more likely than Mav/Fronk
>>37214076>futaplease go away and stay go
>>37214076>>tfw Futa Mav will be more likely than Mav/FronkFuta MavXYoungspawn is canon.
>>37214093That at least got written.
>>37214064>I wanted to hear from Merlin and Mav though.merlin is quite optimistic on this.And i really want to hear mav's opinion too.
>>37214076>tfw Mav will never winI'm all for a Slider victory, but Mav would've been way up there as well
>>37214113Well of coarse but I wanted to hear her justification on it and she has the most insight on the system then anyone else.
>>37214146Don't worry, Mav's harem will occasionally orbit through our Third Sphere harem.
>>37214108That doesn't mean it is good, or canon.Canon is that Maverick is in lesbians with Youngspawn, happily so.
>>37214102except the futa part.
>>37214205Thats what the magic is for Ghost, and you just know that Youngspawn acquired a detachable penis somewhere in her travels.
>>37214205The Holy Ghost hath spokenth, and all well in this thread.
>>37214205What, it's Mav/FutaYoungspawn?
>>37214232So if PF is the Father and GhostDiva's the Holy Ghost, who's the Son? Merc? Maus? Kota?
>>37214231No.>>37214255No. McFucking kill yourself, Kotters
>>37214205What would have been Mav's opinion on this?Also despite the opinions I felt that there wasn't much details on the system itself/
>>37214283>Also despite the opinions I felt that there wasn't much details on the system itself/Pretty much, mostly because we're talking to people that don't know the system, if we could talk to some guys to work on it and study it full time then we might get that info, but for now its too much of a risk
>>37214328Yeah but we don't know who to go ito though?
>>37214424Sokolov?Isn't this derived from his work before he defecting?
>>37214617I think so but he's not there.
