You say as you finish recounting your story to both Kelsey and Anderson, who were listening about your visit to Strana Mechty with great interest.(cont)
>>37625334"Hm, yes. We've had our suspicions that Putin or somebody affiliated with him was Sirius." Anderson nodded. "It makes sense. Helping us makes his rivals in GRU look bad, further cementing his position, and since he's not the one directly taking action, none of it can be traced back to him. Pretty damn devious.""Still, I'm concerned about the return of the Martians." Kelsey frowns. "Shouldn't your people be worrying about that?""Well, half the intelligence community believes Putin's story or are at least willing to give him the benefit of the doubt." Anderson shrugs. "My personal opinion? I wouldn't trust the guy further than I can throw him. If he's so good at backstabbing his own side, what does that say about he does to his enemies?""So you think he's just taking advantage of our fears for a personal agenda." Kelsey narrows his eyes."Like very other person on this planet." Anderson shrugs.Both Colonels then turn to you, as if expecting you to add something to the conversation.>I think Putin might be telling the truth.>Yeah, I don't really trust him, either.>No comment.>Other
>>37625340>Yeah, I don't really trust him, either.
>>37625340>>No comment."He maybe right about Martians, but didn't mean we should fully trust this guy more than needed"
>>37625340>>I think Putin might be telling the truth.
>>37625340>>Yeah, I don't really trust him, either.
>>37625340>>37625397Actually sounds pretty good
>>37625340>OtherHe maybe right, But I can't really trust him either. We need more evidence to prove either way. I am rather concerned of his drive to implant cybernetics in witches, Frank Bishop, and myself.
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>37625340>>I think Putin might be telling the truth.
>>37625510He is a tech-priest, what do you expect?
What does everyone think of Davis after meeting her?
>>37625737Sharktwins harem candidate.
>>37625786What makes you say that?
>>37625340"I don't really know." You frown. "He might be right about the Martians, but that doesn't mean we should fully trust him more than needed, either.""Well said." Anderson nods. "And even then, it's not as if we don't have contingencies in case of that event.""Either way, it was a tough mission, and I'm glad everybody came out of it all right." Kelsey grins. "In addition, while you were out, I received a very peculiar request.""Peculiar?" You raise an eyebrow."Apparently, the Emperor has invited you to dinner." Kelsey hands you a small envelope. "It will be later tonight, for just you and one other person. He's up in Seoul right now on a PR trip, but we can get you out there before sundown. I know it's short notice, but he seemed really eager to talk." "About what?" You ask."I don't know, but it sounded rather important." Kelsey shrugs.>Well, it's not like I can refuse.>Sorry, maybe another time.>Other
>>37625802Because the Menage de Frank is overcrowded and there's no way the twins will share her with Joe.
>>37625857>>Well, it's not like I can refuse.
>>37625857>>Well, it's not like I can refuse.Bring the Janis
>>37625857>>Well, it's not like I can refuse.>>37625802Just a small remark from Fronk himself, which i find more funny than if she ended in Fronk harem.
>>37625857>>Well, it's not like I can refuse.Us and one other. Should we bring Janice?
>>37625857>Well, it's not like I can refuse.You do not just refuse an offer from Emperor Takei.
>>37625857>Well, it's not like I can refuseI am getting a baaad feeling
>>37625857>>Well, it's not like I can refuse.>>37625882>>37625896Well of course
>>37625857>Well, it's not like I can refuse.
>>37625857>Well, it's not like I can refuse.Emperors just don't invite solders to dinner...IT JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN>>37625737Davis is for lewds. If Ghost had made her shy then she wouldn't be for lewds. But hey, I don't run the quest so whatever floats his goat....>>37625786No, Mav haram candidate. Mav needs some love too
>>37625910Well somebody might have like suggested Red so she can fangirl over DAI NIPPON TENNO-SAMA or something.
>>37625857>Well, it's not like I can refuse.Of course we're taking Janice.
>>37625859Point. I imagine Mav eating her up. Though Davis's preferences remain to be seen.>>37625893Well I meant by first impression and maybe Nixion's opinion of her.
>>37625954The only preference we've seen out of Davis was actually mild fangirlism to Merlin.
>>37626175Man I am so glad we didn't vote to be a raging dick to her.
>>37626204Nixon vouched for her so she can't be that bad.Though I was surprised I didn't feel anything involving waifuing towards her.When I think about it she hasphysical traits we already have from other girls in Frank's group so besides the surprise she wasn't Merlin/Laika size, she was meh in the 'wow' department.
>>37625857"Well, it's not like I can refuse." You chuckle. "I mean, who declines an invitation from an Emperor?""That's a good point." Kelsey laughs. "We've got a C-130 scheduled to fly out at 1600. Make sure you get there on time." "Yes sir." You nod."And remember, you're not just representing yourself or the Air Force, but the entire United States as well. Please don't fuck it up.""I'll keep that in mind, sir." You laugh."Good. Dismissed." Kelsey salutes and waves you off."You're getting rather popular among the Japanese inner circle." Anderson grins as he walks out of the office with you. "You ever consider going into politics? With your reputation and Lieutenant Foster's connections, you'd probably make President in a couple decades.""Wait, you know about me and Janice?" You blink."Me and half the goddamn base!" Anderson cackles. "You don't do a good job of keeping it on the down low.""I suppose not." You sigh. "So how about it? Eager to be called President Pierce some day?">It does have a nice ring to it...>God no. I've always tried to stay away from politics.>Other
>>37626204Yeah, she seems nice. >>37626268But when I saw her picture I almost wanted to tell Ghost to stop sticking his fetishes in the story.>>37626279>God no. I've always tried to stay away from politics.
>>37626279>>God no. I've always tried to stay away from politics.>>37626268>Though I was surprised I didn't feel anything involving waifuing towards her.I prefer waiting several more threads before saying that....
>>37626279>>God no. I've always tried to stay away from politics.
>>37626279>It does have a nice ring to it...
>>37626279>Depends on who else is running.
>>37626279>God no. I've always tried to stay away from politics.>Sounds like some sort of bad Rock/Heavy metal song
>>37626304>But when I saw her picture I almost wanted to tell Ghost to stop sticking his fetishes in the story.Tanned/black girl with silver hair?
>>37626279>God no. I've always tried to stay away from politics.At least in the PJs we know who wants us out.
>>37626279>>It does have a nice ring to it...President "Will" Pierce....I wanna make a joke....
>>37626279>God no. I've always tried to stay away from politics.
>>37626279>>OtherWhile the alliteration has a nice ring, I think I'd rather stay away from it.
>>37626305True but first impressions are a must. I mean hell I wanted to waifu Psycomoto and the twins during their first appearance since they kind of went in with a bang or made a strong impression. Well not so much the Sharks but more Psycomoto. Her entrance was 'meh', other witches had stronger entrances. .
>>37626349That sounds lewd.MENTION THIS!
>>37626349>>37626441....And then our opposition will make constant jokes about the President piercing things on the early internet forums, and make memes on imageboards.
>>37626268>Though I was surprised I didn't feel anything involving waifuing towards her.We already have the Big 3 we're waifu'ing, as well as the second tier harem with Brigette and Wendy and Mav in it, then you've got the 3rd tier harem.We're full up on waifuing.
>>37626339Yeah, brown/tan girls with the silvery hair. Also, F-14's. ....Brilliant idea!Drawfags! We need Davis and Brigette in bikini's giving Tomcat-chan a sponge bath, stat!
>>37626638NO ANON, YOU KNOW NOT WHAT POWERS THEY WIELDREVERSE THIS COURSE LEST YOU KILL GHOST
>>37626512I thought Kostantina is second tier? Psycomoto is third. But either way your right
>>37626664>KILL GHOST>not empowering him
>>37626664NO! WE MUST SEE IT! GHOST CAN HANDLE IT BUT WE MUST SUPPORT HIM! DELICIOUS CURVY BROWN IN BIKINIS PLUS TOMCAT CHAN! GHOST'S BONER WILL PIERCE THE HEAVENS AND BRING THE RAPTURE UPON US!
>>37626710Dude, just looking at unpainted F-14's nearly killed him, you've no idea how ruined his body is, it couldn't handle it.
>>37626512>We're full up on waifuing.You just went full retard man...Never go full retard...
>>37626710Mangafag you must draw this for us! Put it on the list!
>>37626720What will we do if that happens?Will Frank sleep with the First and Second tier harem?
>>37626678Konnie is trying to break into the 2nd tier, but is thus far unsuccessful, and psychomot is in the rotating 4th tier, the mistresses
>>376267594th sphere is "missed the bus, no way to catch up"
>>37626759Who's in 3rd tier?
>>37626753Frank will properly court and marry the first tier. The second will be Let down gently, as will all the rest. Merlin Laika and Natalya will all get cuter!
>>37626788ALL OR NOTHING!
>>37626788ALL OR NOTHING!Also who is Natalya little sister tier towards?Frank or Pierce?I think Frank.
>>37626841Definitely Frank since she's Konnie's effective little sister and Konnie is Frank/murder sexual.
>>37626788Except we've already banged one of those in the 2nd tier, and have come close several times in the past with Mav.But 1st tier are indeed for bringing breakfast to bed in, I still want drawfaggings of Ice in a sheer white babydoll, Slider in nothing but a flannelette shirt thats a little too big for her, and Katya in black lace lingerie, lying together in bed while we bring them breakfast after a long night of fun together.
>>37626865Brigette, (Bridgette? Brigete? I always forget how Ghost spells it) is self admittedly not in our harem though, just a friend with benefits. I don't think we've actually been interested in Mav either, though I guess that depends on how you look at it. But the second part I agree with completely.
>>37626819but frank is a loyalist!
>>37626865What does that leave Wendy? Frank said she makes a mean breakfast, I imagine she'll do the same for Frank.Also who can't resist freshly baked English Muffins in the morning. >>37626858Not to mention I think Frank notices 'sparks' within the dead eyes of Natalya while Pierce only see the never ending abysss between Tarin and Her's staring contest.
>>37626279"Oh god no, I've made it a habit to stay as far away from politics as possible." You wince. "I like to shoot my way out of problems, if you know what I mean.""Too true, too true." Anderson laughs. "That's why I've always loved SOCOM. More focused on getting the job done than getting tied up in red tape and bullshit. Anyways, I'll be seeing you, Captain."With that, Anderson gives you a quick salute before breaking off. You head back to the barracks alone, where you find Janice, Red, and Tarin in the mess, apparently playing Jenga with Laika."Wait, you mean the tower ISN'T supposed to fall?" Laika asks, confused."Yes, that's how it's supposed to work." Red sighs. "I still don't get it.""Hey, girls." You greet them as you walk in. "Where are the others?""Oh, Ghost and Nungesser are off 'helping' the crew get the Ghost Hawk fixed." Red shrugs. "Jetstream and Euclid are taking a quick trip to Tokyo to meet some relatives. What's up?""Oh, well, I just got invited to dinner by the Emperor himself." You grin. "And I can bring one person along with me.""Oh? And who are you bringing, then?" Red asks, trying not to sound interested.>Janice>Red>Tarin>Laika>Other
>>37626961>>Janice>>37626922Frank is The God Emperor and the spellcasters is her Witch-Matriach>>37626909>I don't think we've actually been interested in Mav either, though I guess that depends on how you look at it.Personally i see Mav is quite committed with Young now so she enters NTR tier.
>>37626961>JaniceDuh?>>37626931Wendy is waifu but not for Frank
>>37626931>What does that leave Wendy?In the 2nd tier, like I said.>>37626961>Janice
>>37626961>Janicethere was no other choice, I'm so sorry Red
>>37626961>>RedShe wants to meet the Emperor!
>>37626931I always love it when you can bring back the life in someones eyes, I hope we see more of the two crazy Russians. >>37626961>JaniceIt's going to be a formal dinner Red, sorry.
>>37626961>JaniceWhy did you have to get Red's hopes up like that, Ghost?
>>37627037It's Merc, and sometimes he likes to poke at us hard.
>>37626961"Well, Janice of course. She's my XO, after all." You say."Heh, as if that's the only reason." Red rolls her eyes."Ooooh! Ooooh! Can I come! Can I come?" Laika says, leaping up and down in her seat."I don't know, the invitation is just for the two of us." You frown. "Besides, you might be better off staying on base.""B-but I wanna cooooome!" Laika whines."You know, there's nothing stopping us from coming to with you. We just can't actually attend the dinner." Tarin shrugs. "I'm sure me and Red can keep an eye on Laika while we're there.">Sounds like a plan, Tarin.>No, you should all stay on base.>Other
>>37627037I did no such thing. ... wonder if Jess and Kat will be there?
>>37627249>Sounds like a plan, Tarin.
>>37627249>No, you should all stay on base.>>37627273oh lawdy loo
>>37627249>>No, you should all stay on base.Don't mind me, just pissin' in the wind here, folks.
>>37627249>No, you should all stay on base.
>>37627249> No, you should stay on base.Might be something afoot. Having our crew loaded up and ready might be nice if we need quick extraction.
>>37627249>>Sounds like a plan, Tarin.Blackup for the inevitable assassination/kidnap attempt.
>>37627249>>Sounds like a plan, Tarin.>>37627273Sounds to be a pain. No Frank as a filter.
>>37627249>>Sounds like a plan, Tarin.
>>37627249>>Sounds like a plan, Tarin.>>37627273If that happen i'll get my pop.
you are going to get Laika caught
>>37627249>No, you should all stay on base.That dinner is going to be crawling with Imperial Japanese SF, and we already tangled with the Tengu once, and if Laika gets recognized, there's going to be a whole mess of trouble.Better not to risk it.
>>37627249>>No, you should all stay on base.
>>37627249>No, you should all stay on base.>>37627405yeah, we can't risk Laika getting spotted or any suspicion of her
>>37627249>>No, you should all stay on base.Lets not get daughteru killed over nothing.
>>37627249"No, you should all stay on base." You shake your head. "That dinner is probably going to be crawling with Royal Guard and Japanese SF, and I'd rather not risk Laika getting exposed.""Fair enough." Tarin nods. "Just a suggestion.""But I want to go!" Laika pouts."How about this, Laika." You smile as you kneel in front of her. "Next time we get back stateside, I'll take you Disneyland, okay?""R-really?!?" Laika's eyes widen like dinner plates. Even in Russia, children have heard of Disneyland, though to them it was a mythical place that probably didn't exist."Really." You laugh and ruffle her hair. "So just sit tight and wait for us to come back, okay?""Okay!" Laika smiles."Always spoiling the children, are you, Captain?" Janice chuckles."Oh, as if you're one to talk." You smirk. "Are you ready to go?""Hm, let me prepare a few things and then we'll be on our way!" Janice starts heading for her room. "So, what's the occasion?" Red asks while you wait."No clue." You shrug. "The invitation was totally out of the blue.""Hey, maybe he's planning to adopt you as one of his sons, or something!" Red grins. "And then he'll give you a big harem of girls to choose from!""I think you've been watching too many of those cartoons, Red." You sigh."ANIME, Cap! There's a difference!" Red pouts."Yeah, whatever you say." You smile."All right, all packed!" Janice says, walking down with a travel bag. "Have you thought of what to wear?""I figure my formal uniform is enough." You say and check your watch. "Better get going. We don't want to miss the flight.">Head straight for the plane.>Take care of something before you leave. (Specify.)>Other
>>37627619>Head straight for the plane.Hide in plane sight
>>37627619Does our formal uniform include a sidearms and blade? If so>Head straight for the plane.
>>37627619>>Head straight for the plane.DIDNEY WORL
>>37627619>Head straight for the plane.Time (and the Emperor) wait for no one.
>>37627619>Head straight for the plane.
>>37627619>"Hey, maybe he's planning to adopt you as one of his sons, or something!" Red grins. "And then he'll give you a big harem of girls to choose from!">That's Frank's thing, Though Pierce has plenty of girls already.
>>37627619>"I think you've been reading too much of SWQ 89, Red." You sigh.ftfy
>>37627619>>Take care of something before you leave. (Specify.)Knock over Jenga tower. Accidentally.
>>37627823I still don't get why Laika doesn't get how to play Jenga, it's not that hard.
>>37627619>Take care of something before you leave.Ask Anderson to keep a few of his men around; that Tengu saw us, and those Japanese SF may have been able to piece together that the near-silent Hawk they saw matched descriptions of the Ghosthawk that had assisted the Umibozu and Unit 731 before.
>>37627853All her life, people tell her to blow up air traffic control towers, command towers, towers with really important people. Now people are telling her to make them stay up. What the heck?!
>>37627972We should bring Tarin for rogue on rogue action if it happens.
>>37627619"Nah, let's head for the plane." You say."All right, then!" Janice says happily. "Red, Tarin, I expect you to hold down the fort while we're gone. And make sure Laika doesn't get into trouble!""Sure thing, Janice." Red says. "And that means NO SWORDS OR KNIVES." Janice says sternly."AAAAAWWWWWWWWW." Red and Laika both wail.The both of you head over to the plane that's supposed to shuttle you to Seoul. As expected, it's just a regular C-130 going on a supply run. You and Janice strap in on the side seats and endure the long, uncomfortable ride."You think the Emperor could loan us a private jet for the ride back?" You muse."It would make things far more convenient." Janice nods. Fortunately, the ride isn't really that long at all, at least compared to the flight from Washington to Tokyo. The C-130 touches down in Seoul without incident, and as you and Janice disembark, you see two suited men waiting outside near a black sedan. You see the small pins on their suits bearing crest of the Japanese Royal Guard."This way, Captain." One of the guards says in almost perfect English. "We will take you to an area where you can be more appropriately dressed.""Thanks." You nod as you and Janice hand your bags to the second guard, who dutifully takes them and places them in the trunk of the sedan. (cont)
>>37628336The two guards are nice enough, but are completely silent for the whole trip. They stop at a small building just outside the airport, which is crawling with more similarly suited men, as well as Royal Guard in tactical gear."This is our temporary security headquarters." The first guard explains. "There should be enough privacy here for the two of you to change into more appropriate attire.You and Janice are led to a small locker room, where you each take a stall. You quickly swap out of your normal fatigues into your formal uniform and step out, briefly inspecting yourself. It seemed like everything was there and in order.Then, Janice walks out. However, instead of her own formal dress uniform, she is instead dressed in a traditional Japanese kimono, with her long hair tied back in a ponytail. You wonder when exactly she got something like that. "Well? How do I look?" Janice says as she spins around to give you a full view.>Absolutely amazing.>MELTDOWN>Other

>>37628829>>37628834Well okay then.Thanks for the redemption
>>37628851This thread has been double-blessed by Nurgle.
>>37628354You try to say something, anything, but your jaw just flaps open and shut uselessly as words fail to come out. "Oho, I thought so." Janice grins and leans in for a kiss, pressing her lips against yours. The contact finally snaps you back to reality. "You don't look too shabby yourself.""It's not like I'm wearing anything different." You point out."True." Janice chuckles."So, uh, when and where exactly did you get that?" You point to her outfit."Oh, Jetstream actually gifted to me. She said it didn't really fit her, anyways." Janice smiles. "Though honestly, it's hard to imagine a girl like her wearing something like this!"Honestly, you never imagined Janice wearing something like this, either. "All right, shall we go, then?" You ask, taking her hand."Mhm! Let's go!" Janice nods.---(cont)
>>37628986Of course, the restaurant is a very, VERY fancy place. However, it was a weird contradiction of being extremely extravagant, as well as extremely discreet at the same time. The decoration and design of the restaurant looked to have been ripped directly out of the Royal Palace in Tokyo, yet the restaurant itself was hidden away in a very boring looking and nondescript office building.The two of you are led through a small back hallway, lined with Royal Guards, both witch and mundane, until you finally reach a small private booth where the Emperor sits alone. "Ah, Pierce, Janice, it is so nice to see you again!" The Emperor bows and you and Janice bow in return. "It has been too long!""Well, it hasn't been that long." You say."Perhaps, when you are young." The Emperor laughs and takes Janice's hand and kisses it. "And you are lovely as always.""Oh my, thank you, Emperor!" Janice giggles.The both of you then sit down at the table while a waitress pours tea for the three of you."Now, I'm sure you two have been through a lot since we've last met! Would you regale this old man with some of your stories?">Sure thing.>Actually, can you tell us why we're here first?>Other
>>37629008>Sure thing.Gotta respect the Emps first.
>>37629008>Sure thing.Let's try to not get baited
>>37629008>Actually, can you tell us why we're here first?What can you tell me about your reasons for inviting me?>[Engage Shepard.exe]
>>37629008>Sure thing.And don't mention that we kidnapped an Imperial Japanese spy from his job in Korea, shot at and likely killed a few Imperial Japanese SF, and got into a fight with a Tengu.
>>37629008"Well, we haven't been doing much since we last crossed paths in the United States." You grin. "Mostly, we've just been testing new equipment, like brand new strikers and planes. Did a couple of missions on the side, but nothing too special.""I see, I see." The Emperor nods. "Is that so?""Pretty much." You shrug. "Also, how is Katsumi doing, by the way? I actually haven't seen her since the whole rescue mission.""She is doing very well!" The Emperor responds happily. "She is already back on active duty and has already participated in a number of decisive battles!""I'm sure she did very well." You nod. "Yes, yes, though it is rather regretful that she never managed to gain revenge on the White Butterfly for downing her. It would have been poetic, no?" The Emperor chuckles."Um, yeah, it would have." You nod. You weren't sure if it was safe to mention anything about Laika to him.At this point, the first courses start to arrive. Bowls of hot miso sip and dishes full of fish and other assorted seafood are placed in front of you."I hear the war effort on the Japanese front in Korea is doing well?" Janice asks as she begins filling her plate."My guards would not have let me step foot in Korea if that wasn't the case!" The Emperor chortles. "But yes, our armies have steadily been pushing the Chinese north. We expect to reach our original borders within the month.">And what will you do then?>So why did you really call us here?>Othere
>>37629438>Neat.>So why did you really call us here?
>>37629438>>So why did you really call us here?
>>37629438>And what will you do then?I know he's expecting us to be the blunt American.I just can't tell if it would be a pleasant surprise if we don't do it, or if he'll be disappointed if we don't act according to his predictions.
>>37629438>So why did you really call us here?First comment on how it's nice that the war is going well for them or something. Make it polite, we are his guests after all
>>37629438>And what will you do then?
>>37629438>>And what will you do then?
>>37629438>And what will you do then?Invading and holding China will not be as easy as it was when it was fractured before WWII. I hope he realizes this.
>>37629564>invading ChinaI know this is Imperial Japan we're talking about, but I'd hope that their strategic planners wouldn't be this dumb
>>37629601Hey, MacArthur tried to be that dumb but thankfully he wasn't allowed to follow through on the dumb.
>>37629614MacArthur could have done it though or at least beat the North Koreans.
>>37629729He *did* beat the North Koreans. That's not in dispute.The salient problem is he wanted to launch a full-scale invasion of mainland China using Nuclear Weapons. Which is monumentally idiotic on it's own merits, but even more so considering that by the time he suggested that, the Soviet Union also had nukes.Besides, the only great skill MacArthur's ever shown is at coming out of his monumental fuckups relatively clean.
>>37629614>>37629729Where is MacArthur in all this anyway?
>>37629925Long dead, i'd assume, given it's 1990.In period SWQ? Being a dumbshit in the Pacific, IIRC.
>>37629925He died in the 60's in our time. Unless he's got a top-tier Healwitch wife, he's dead here too.>>37629968He also got impersonated by General Bradley so he could tell BTFO of Joseph Kennedy for being a giant dick.
>>37629998Which has the side effect of trolling MacArthur as who do you think the family'll blame for this?
>>37630056Given MacArthur's ability to get away with some damn near criminal levels of idiocy(possibly his Gnome power), I wouldn't be surprised if he managed to weasel his way out of that controversy.
Sorry for the delay guys, I got held up by some business!>>37629438"And what will you do then?" You ask."Nothing." The Emperor says simply."Wait, what?" You ask. "Care to explain further?""I may be the Emperor, and I may be old, but I am not foolish." The Emperor sighs. "I know that Japan, even with the aid of the Korean Defense Force, does not have the numbers or the logistics to press beyond our borders. I fear that as an empire, we have reached the limit of our expansion.""Yeah, that is a legitimate concern." You nod. "And you can bet the Chinese will fight your for every inch of territory.""Very much like how we fight for our own. For all of our differences, that is one thing we share in common." The Emperor nods. "And it is on that subject that I move on to the true reason why I called you here.""I suppose it's not for an autograph." You joke."Will!" Janice smacks you on the shoulder."Haha, not quite!" The Emperor chortles, but his expression quickly become somber again. "This is a question I must ask you not as a Captain of the US Air Force, but as a family friend."Oh man, this sounded pretty serious. "What is the question?" Janice asks, her eyes narrowing."What would you say if I granted Korea it's independence from Japan?" The Emperor asks. Wait... did he really say what you think he just said?>Something that should have happened a long time ago.>I don't think the timing is right.>I think it's up to you.>Other
>>37630268>I think it's up to you.You're fucking Emperor Takei, you can do whatever you want.
>>37630268>I think it's up to you.>You know the area and it's people best. Do what you feel is right for them.
>>37630268>>I don't think the timing is right.>>I think it's up to you.Honestly not now
>>37630268>>I think it's up to you.
>>37630268Also there will be another brief delay in posting so please bear with me.
>>37630268>I think it's up to you
>>37630268>>I think it's up to you."You are the Emperor, and while in long term that might be a good decision, you should not be too hasty."
>>37630268Up to you. But I'd lean towards independence, being American and all that.
>I don't think the timing is right.>I think it's up to you.>Other: Do it once, do it right
>>37630268>>Something that should have happened a long time ago.This is of course assuming the ruling party wants to join the allies and that there isn't a huge fracturing expected so it just turns into North Korea 2 abject suffering boogaloo.
>>37630268>I think it's up to you, but I also think you should.
>>37630268>Something that should have happened a long time ago.FREE KOREATOJO GO HOMEBOOT THE GOOKS
>>37630268>I think it's up to you."I think independence would be good for the Koreans. I also think you should be prepared for the backlash. I can't imagine everyone in Japan would agree with the move, and I would also imagine that the Koreans themselves may not be so quick to forgive you."
>>37630268>I think it's up to you.
>>37630268>I don't think the timing is right.The Kim family is around. It would be very bad if il-Suk and his spawn took power of a freshly independent Korea.
>>37630268>Something that should have happened a long time ago."Korean sentiment towards foreigners now is low, they have long held to thier history of independent rule and granting it would firmly turn Korean opinion in japan's favor."
>>37630268"Honestly, I think it's up to you." You scratch your head. "I mean, you're the EMPEROR. Isn't whatever you say law?""Ha. Of course you Americans find the issue so simple." The Emperor smiles. "Actually, this was something I had been thinking about a long time.""Why are you willing to let go of your largest colonial possession?" Janice asks."When you grow old, you begin to think about things, and look back to the past. I see imperial powers like England, France, and the United States letting go of their colonies, and I realize Japan stubbornly tries to keep its grip on the past. I think it is time to move on. To prove Japan has what it takes to advance and better itself.">Sounds just like you to say that.>I can't imagine everybody will agree.>Are you sure Korea is capable of self rule?>Other
>>37630605>>Sounds just like you to say that.>>I can't imagine everybody will agree.>>Are you sure Korea is capable of self rule?

>>37630605>Sounds just like you to say that.>I can't imagine everybody will agree.You're okay, Takei.
>>37630605>I can't imagine everybody will agree.>Are you sure Korea is capable of self rule?
>>37630605>>Sounds just like you to say that.>Are you sure Korea is capable of self rule?
>>37630605>Are you sure Korea is capable of self rule?Didn't we hear about some issues regarding corruption in local government a few threads back?
>>37630605"It sounds just like you to say that." You grin and nod. "But I can't imagine everybody would agree with the status quo changing like that.""Oh, I do not expect such a thing, either." The Emperor nods in agreement. "Many of my advisers and members of my court have warned me against it, though I think it is mainly because they fear of what might happen. They're too stuck in the old ways to be able to change effectively.""Well then." You raise a glass. "To change then.""To change." Janice smiles as she raises her own glass.The Emperor pauses briefly before smiling."To change, then."All three of your glasses clink, right when you hear what you believe is an explosion.>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget Ace Combat on Fridays and Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday!.
