Part two for the night. Hopefully we don't need a part three, ahaha!Original thread here, while it lasts>>37821838++[x] Knock out the floggers now. Those foxhound are well beyond range, and even if Merlin juices the missiles, they can't hit them yet. The floggers are your immediate target- they're in closer, and while they're older, slower, and overall less threatening than the foxhounds, you still can't ignore them. They've broken up into wing pairs, but they're too far out and they know it- their AA-7s unable to draw lock as the Wyvern's radar starts flashing up targets- the datalink means that you and the twins don't fire on the same targets as AMRAAM solutions begin appearing. “Let's take these guys down quick, we've got to get on those foxhounds!” You call, selecting group two- programmed in as the AMRAAMs- and hitting the trigger. Four of the deadly missiles enter the slipstream from your fighter, a split second behind the four launched from the twin's jet. The migs break away, attempting to defeat the missile shots with chaff, and, as they close, extreme break turns. It's ineffective- you can see the explosions from here. Being old fighters, they never really stood much of a chance- simple fact was they were so far outclassed they might as well have not come up. You turn into the foxhounds a second later, just as they begin launching their own missiles. 1/2
>>37829654>Hopefully we don't need a part three, ahaha!You've been going for over 6 hours, I don't think you'll last for a part three.
“Missiles in the air! We're being locked by two radars, eight missiles.” Merlin warns. “Missiles look like they're AA-9s, at this range. Jamming's up, thirty seconds to impact.” “Are they still closing?” You ask. “Yeah. Still tracking, four for us, three for the jumbo. Those three haven't launched yet.” “How soon will we be in range?” “One minute, unless they turn away. But they can't, those AA-9s are semi active, they've got to stay locked on us.”“TALDs?” You ask, referring to your chaff and flare replacements, the tactical air launched decoys. “If they're locked on it won't matter.” Merlin responds. “Twenty seconds. If you wait until about five seconds and break, I can dump them out. It might spoof a couple missiles, otherwise you'll have to out turn them. They're like our old phoenixes, they're designed to kill bombers, they can't turn.” Ok, break on my count, then start dumping TALDs Save the decoys, we can just out turn them.
>>37829720> Save the decoys, we can just out turn them.
>>37829720> Save the decoys, we can just out turn them.Its been a while since we have 2 parter.
>>37829720>[X] Save the decoys, we can just out turn them.
>>37829720>[x] Save the decoys, we can just out turn them.No reason burn our decoys just yet.
>>37829720> Ok, break on my count, then start dumping TALDs
>>37829720> Save the decoys, we can just out turn them.Tell the twins to use their own discretion, they can't pull the same shit we can as easy.
>>37829720>[x] Save the decoys, we can just out turn them.We might need them to protect the airliner if things get dicey.
>>37829713Well arent you just smiles and sunshine, mr optimist
>>37829720>[x] Ok, break on my count, then start dumping TALDs
>>37830013Well I don't want Ghost to collapse and have a heart attack or something, he usually ends up worse for wear after a real long session, and he never gets enough sleep anyway.Shorter threads are better than no threads at all.
>>37830067Ghoast will poast until his body is dry
>>37830095don't lose your way
>>37830095I'd rather he not dry up and keep posting.
>>37830131we shall then proceed to milk him for more posts
[x] Save the decoys, we can just out turn them. “Save the decoys then.” You say. “Let me know when it's three seconds to impact.” It's a tense couple of seconds after the ten second warning- they seem to last forever. You can actually see the missiles in the air now, a little black dot surrounded by a halo of fire, the glare from it's rocket motor. “Three!” She cries- then you can her grunt as the air is forced out of her lungs by her harness slamming into her chest as you push the stick all the way forward and kick in full right rudder. Your fighter slams almost to a forward stop, converting it's energy instantly into a screaming, curving dive- one that wouldn't be possible without thrust vectoring. “We're still locked!” Merlin warns. “Missiles have lost track!” You respond by immediately pulling the stick back and kicking in left rudder, flipping the fighter from a dive into a brutal climb, one that smashes you back into your seat. “AMRAAMs in range!” She calls- then a second later, as you're waiting for a solution “They've launched again! More missiles, in the air!”A second later she calls up again. “They're breaking away! We're still painted, they're active missiles!” Let these Foxhounds go, go evasive and use decoys to defeat them, engage those other Migs! You're in a head on aspect, those missiles are going to have trouble hitting anyway, and you can catch those foxhounds before they can get out of the airspace
>>37830197> Let these Foxhounds go, go evasive and use decoys to defeat them, engage those other Migs!

>>37830197> Let these Foxhounds go, go evasive and use decoys to defeat them, engage those other Migs!They're not a threat anymore if they're breaking and leaving, but there are plenty of planes that are still here which we need to focus on and lose these missiles fast.
>[x] You're in a head on aspect, those missiles are going to have trouble hitting anyway, and you can catch those foxhounds before they can get out of the airspaceWarhound catches scent of his prey and goes for the kill.
>>37830197>[x] Let these Foxhounds go, go evasive and use decoys to defeat them, engage those other Migs!fuck, getting too real for me.http://youtu.be/sobIVZ6sGis
>>37830197>[x] Let these Foxhounds go, go evasive and use decoys to defeat them, engage those other Migs!No longer an active threat, defeat the missiles then move on.
>She's really not worried. She's just excited.Merlin, the RIO that lives for battle.
>>37830334She's got a combat boner
>>37830334She enjoys all the killing!
>>37830334Schnee squadron when?
>>37830334Unlike the RIOs in Ace Combat.I feel sorry for those guys...
>>37830334It takes a strong witch to deny what's in front of her.
[x] Let these Foxhounds go, go evasive and use decoys to defeat them, engage those other Migs!You break away, pumping TALDs into the air behind you as you turn to engage the three migs heading for the airliner. “They're launching!” Merlin warns as you look back over your shoulder to see the twins linking back up with you, the missiles aimed at them similarly defeated and sailing on into the distance. You kick in the burners to try to get in range- the fight dragged you a bit away from the airliner- but it proves to be unnecessary as the Foxhounds turn and run, their missiles expended. You arrive in time to watch Ice and Slider swat them out of the sky, the last couple coming close enough that the girls are forced to take them on the shield instead of shoot them down. “Nice to see you again, Warhound.” Ice says, looking back at you before returning to her spot above and ahead of the jetliner. “You get them?” “The floggers. Those foxhounds got away.” You respond. 1/2
>>37830570"I could see the joy of combat on your face! ""Yaaaaaay."
>>37830645Shamrock's RIO had the worst of it.You know she was screaming like a banshee as Shamrock accepted he was going down and promising to kick in his knees when they landed.
“Good enough. We're deep inside turkish airspace anyway.” She says. “Those-” she pauses. “Those missiles have new warheads. That took a lot out of us.” She continues after a second. “Do us a favor, don't let too much else through.” “I don't think they're going to mess with us much from here.” You say, “Merlin, how are we lookin?” “Scope's clear.” She says. “We're good on fuel, too.” “You going to need to divert, boss?” You ask. “The Forrestal can take you aboard.” There's a distinct pause before she responds. “No, we can make the airport as long as we don't have to take any more hits.” Over Turkey and feet wet again into the Mediterranean, your radar stays clear. The CAP of the Forrestal meets you briefly, the flashing their running lights at you before breaking away to resume their patrol over the battlegroup. Before long, the scattered islands give way to Crete, and Chania airport, your destination. Home, at least temporarily, of several air transportation wings, using the southern route across the Atlantic and on into southern Europe, it also plays host to a B-1B group and several other units, and is heavily defended. “Ok, Ice, slider, you two set down right behind the Jumbo, then we'll land.” You order. “We're fine up here, how about we orbit with you, then land after they're safely down?” Ice asks.  Fine, do that. Guess it won't hurt. I'd rather have you on the ground with them to help sort out what's going on down there.
>>37830687> I'd rather have you on the ground with them to help sort out what's going on down there.>>37830334Did you know, There are three kind of RIO?The one who seek strength;The one who lived for pride;And those who can read the tide of battle.And Merlin?...She is the true RIO.

All of these talk about RIO makes me glad we don't have one for Ace Combat Quest.Poor Guy/Girl would have some nervous breakdown.>>37830900"FRAAAAAAANNNKK""Sorry boss, i'll try to cover you but NO WAY i am going there"

>>37830929It's not too late for Karla to acquire a RIO. If one of the butterflies go down we might get away with them backseating for us.

>>37830900>>37830929>>37830939>>37830950>>37830988Frank then proceeds to fly to megalith, hoping that the "true" Konstantina will protect him. Or at least hold them off long enough to het a hip upgrade.
>>37830960Or whats-his-face. You know, the guy from asset protection. The one Karla keeps being lewd too.
>>37831006And then he finds out that the horde of Konstantina is the result of NANOMACHINES viruses who rebuild it victims into a copy of Konstantina.
>>37831067Jager is a ground pounder, not a pilot or backseater that requires years of specialist training.
>>37831067Jager, our boyfriend we've totally taken possession of.
>>37831067Jager.And canonically, his appearance is based on Speirs.
>>37831082Yet for some reason, some people seems want to see Tarin compete against Karla for Jager.Canonically, nothing will happen (maybe). For me? Thanks for the idea, anon.
>>37831068Worse...The "true" Konstantina is in on it and openly lets her clones in, forming an army to love and protect Frank.They form a splinter state, becoming an inverse form of North Korea, where the people keep their beloved trapped with them doing everything in his name. And they also have nukes.Ice, Nixon and Putin instantly tableflip.
>>37831127>Yet for some reason, some people seems want to see Tarin compete against Karla for Jager.Wut? No one has been saying that.

[x] Fine, do that. Guess it won't hurt.You hesitate, then nod. “Fine, do that. Won't hurt to have an extra set of eyes up here, especially now.” It seems to take forever as the jumbo lines up on the runway and makes it's approach- it comes as a huge sigh of relief when the wheels finally kiss the pavement. As it starts to taxi, joined on the ground, now, by security forces vehicles, you look back over your shoulder. “Ok, your turn bo-”“BREAKBREAKBREAK!” Merlin screams- you instantly throw the Wyvern into a break as something punches through the air space you just occupied. “I'm hit! I'm hit!” Alyssa cries- you look back over your shoulder to see her wyvern stalling out, it's aft port quarter gone, the area around it a mangled mess. Two Fandances, one painted a three tone scheme, the other jet black go screaming across the sky above you. Ice's fire pings harmlessly off a shield as they twist away. “It's coming apart! I can't control it!” Alyssa cries. “Get out! Get outta that jet!” You order, turning to engage. “Lock those bastards up, Merlin!” “I'm trying!” She calls. “Laser range finding is the only thing working!” You're about to respond when the three tone ship vomits a cascade of missiles into the sky, just as you watch Clarissa ride her ejection seat up and out of her broken bird, Alyssa following her a second later.“Frank, Multiple locks on us!” Merlin warns, her voice excited as you hammer the wyvern into a break and practically break the TALD dispenser trigger. “TALDs are working!” “What the hell was that?” You ask, watching the two fandances break apart, the black one continuing away, the three tone fighter coming in to mix it up. “EML, I think. I saw the discharge pulse on tesla.” She says.  Ice, Slider, I want you on the ground. Now.  Ice, slider, You two take the black one, I got this one.  You two keep this one busy, I got the black one.
>>37831343> Ice, Slider, I want you on the ground. Now...well shit.You two better pay it with your burning wreckage now.

I am the shitposter who wants to see how far Frank can take it before he burns up and out. I am the shitposter who wants to see him win against impossible odds, or die trying.
>>37831403I think you're forgetting what Fandances can do
>>37831343> Ice, Slider, I want you on the ground. Now.This is why I didn't want Frank to land.
>>37831343>[x] Ice, slider, You two take the black one, I got this one.>>37831403The Fandances are stealth fighters that used to do this shit all the time on the Western Front. Why are you surprised they could do this in a theater that has less well-developed air defenses?
>>37831403Nah I'm calling OMGWTFHAX on these cunts too, you don't manage to get this far into "heavily defended" airspace completely unnoticed and sneak up on a Wyvern OVER THE FUCKING AIRBASE.>>37831450No I'm not, they are not stealth planes, nor can they teleport.Where have they been this entire time? Hiding between our centerline bays?
>>37831450>>37831459>The Fandances are stealth fighters that used to do this shit all the time on the Western FrontNo they didn't, we at least picked them up then, and also>>37831459>a theater that has less well-developed air defenses?Did you not read >>37830687 ?Heavily defended my ass, its like they didn't have a single fucking radar or a single person looking skywards and these two teleported right behind us magically.
>>37831464The jumbo was actually a cargo variant and they were hiding in the fuselage for maximum assassination
>>37831343>[x] You two keep this one busy, I got the black one.It was too fucking easy. See if we got any other friendly birds in the air, the Forrestal CAP maybe?
>>37831343>Highly advanced Fandances with Shields, EMLs and ADMLs.>[x] You two keep this one busy, I got the black one.Take out the one that CAN punch through shields, If I remember correctly their ECM is shite so some agiles should kill it quickly.Lets see if we can preserve as much as possible, salvage is a nice bonus.

Why did we land first?
>>37831495>See if we got any other friendly birds in the air, the Forrestal CAP maybe?How about THE MOTHERFUCKING HEAVILY DEFENDED AIRBASE WE ARE RIGHT ON TOP OF?
>>37831511Yes, yes that too.
>>37831503>Lets see if we can preserve as much as possible, salvage is a nice bonus.Fuck that, we got an intact Fandance already, we were the ones who stole it.These two cocksuckers, they burn in their ejection seats as we drive them into the ground.>>37831507We didn't land anon, the fuck are you reading?>>37831506They still can't magically teleport into the main hub of NATO transportation in the region.
>>37831503>Lets see if we can preserve as much as possible, salvage is a nice bonus.Nope, we're not letting these fuckers remain in any piece thats larger than our fist.
>>37831343> Ice, Slider, I want you on the ground. Now.They are tired after a long flight, their shields cannot take another hit after absorbing the missiles aimed at the Jumbo. We saw that their weapons couldn't break through the shield. Maybe after long enough, but these two can't currently deal with these threats. It would be reckless (okay less reckless) to get them grounded.
>>37831343EMEMY ACE UNIT HAS APPEARED!SPANISH GUITAR INTENSIFIES!

>>37831343[x] Ice, Slider, I want you on the ground. Now.Their shields can't take anymore, and their weapons can't penetrate the shields that the Fandances can generate.With the All-Directional Missiles that they have, the Witches would be toast.
>>37831411Yeah fuck it, changing to>>37831343 Ice, Slider, I want you on the ground. Now.
>>37831343Well that escalated quickly.
Gentelmen, the time has arrived. Someone will die... Ice and Slider are way too low on magic... the twins are under chutes and we are just one jet.Gentelmen, I leave the decision in your hands... I wish you the best
>>37831548Damn good point, we just need to get them on the ground safely, and hold off these two cuntflaps until local defences can scare them away.
>>37831610Fandances don't do shields, they do bullshit ADMM and EML spam with optional drones
[x] Ice, Slider, I want you on the ground. Now. Well fuck.
>>37831534>They still can't magically teleport into the main hub of NATO transportation in the region.They could have been launched by a pair of Typhoon-class submarines that were converted to be submersible aircraft carriers.And the Fandances do have stealth capabilities. Not as good as a dedicated stealth fighter, but still enough to allow it to disappear from radar intermittently.

>>37831633these fandances do have shields though.>>37831631Ice and Slider are getting on the ground, the twins should be safe, we're at a relatively low altitude and we're against 2 planes over a "heavily defended" airfield, if any of the cast die from this, then I'll cut off Ghosts thumbs.

>>37831653Typhoons don't have enough deckspace for that, nor are there any close enough.>but still enough to allow it to disappear from radar intermittently.Which is still not enough to remain completely undetected the ENTIRE WAY back here where they manage to loiter around over the heavily defended airbase and are only revealed when they fire at us...yeah nah, thats fucking bullshit.

>>37831693>Typhoons don't have enough deckspace for thatReal-world ones may not, but that doesn't preclude SWQ-verse Typhoons from being submersible carriers. especially as the Fandance is specifically capable of being launched and recovered by Typhoon submersible carriers.And you're forgetting the existence of Stealth Witches, which can have their magic amplified by being connected to a plane's powerplant.Just like how the Twins and Merlin can't manifest a shield with a regular Striker but they can create shields for their planes when they're connected to a plane's Striker interface.You're ignoring a whole slew of in-world technology and you're just making yourself look ignorant.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ckDg2hZPq4I've got a soft spot for the Anarchy Reigns OST, and it fits so fuck you.
Since we dead.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIZqtLHH6RU
>>37831781>but that doesn't preclude SWQ-verse Typhoons from being submersible carriersThat subcarrier wasn't a Typhoon... It was IIRC a couple Typhoons stuck together with huge modifications
>>37831847Stupidly, badly, less than intelligently, like fucking retards.It's okay, anon. The first step to solving your problem is admitting you have one.
Place your bets Gentlemen! Who do you think will die?IceSliderSherk twins Lol they dead anywayFronkMerlin And FronkEverybody dies
>>37831871How the fuck did we vote badly?No-one asked for stealth jets, aside from that on guy who put "Inb4 Fandance"
>>37831781>You're ignoring a whole slew of in-world technology and you're just making yourself look ignorant.Am I? You're the one seemingly ignoring every single piece of tech in the Med, and on Crete, that these two would have had to pass through, to get at us in a fucking holding pattern orbiting a airbase chock full of defenses and detection gear, meant to stop exactly this from happening.
Rolled 2 (1d6)>>378318851: Ice2: Slider3: Sherk twins Lol they dead anyway4: Fronk5: Merlin And Fronk6: Everybody diesDice Gods, GO!
>>37831885Everybody (or just fronk, it's tanana all over again)
>>37831895Nixon warned us that this mission was gonna go to shit.Like, it's not like we weren't warned beforehand.
>>37831906You amd i are enemies now
>>37831885I'm gonna go for option G:[x] The Russians
>>37831899If they got witches, then magic can trump tech
>>37831821We're not in Turkey, we're a long fucking way away from turkey right now, with several fleets and airbases between us and Turkey.
>>37831916that looks like the best option.
Well this is certainly a hell of an update to come out of class to
>>37831871Okay now you're just being retarded, how the fuck does any of what you've said correlate to what we've voted for?>>37831916>>37831932Yep.
>>37831906YOU FUCKING IDIOTAlso, my vote: > Ice, Slider, I want you on the ground. Now. Let's play safe, just in case.
>>37831885>[x] FandancesWe can figure out what the fuck just happened later, lets focus on splashing Ivan.
>>37831821dude were at Crete right now.
>>37831952Such is the price of war
>>37831952I'd actually be impressed that they hit her from this far away.I would not even be mad.
>>37831955You're late, and that vote already won more than 15 minutes ago.>>37831965Oh fuck off troll.
>>37831965She will never be forgotten...maybe...
>>37831952she is still in Poland.
>>37831973I would be, and probably everyone else that isn't you or the resident troll writefag.
>>37831984Extremely lucky stray bullet.
[x] Ice, Slider, I want you on the ground. Now. “Ice. Slider. I want you two on the ground. Now.” You say with a calm you don't feel. “Frank we-” Ice starts to protest. “NOW.” You order. You see her falter in the air- then make tracks for the airfield. “Frank I can't get a radar return on them!” Merlin calls. “The tan one's coming around, I lost the black one!” “What happened to the rest of those mini missiles?” You ask. “Airfield guns got most of them, some damage on the ground.” She says. You turn into the attack, the tricolor Fandance breaking away from you. You're almost taken by surprise- instead of breaking into your attack it snaps away from you- a basic mistake, almost rookie shit. Still, it snapped into it's new heading almost effortlessly. You're fortunate Agiles are IR guided- or at least, carry an IR seeker head. You quickly pump two of them into the air after the Fandance, watching them acquire. The Fandance drops countermeasures, then begins to turn- far too early- in an attempt to defeat the missiles. “Frank! Three o clock! He's gonna fire, he's gonna fire!” Merlin cries, forcing you to break off your pursuit of the three color fandance as the black one sends another railgun slug screaming through the air at you- it misses, and you come enough to look up and snap another agile at it, using your helmet display. 1/2
>>37831899Yes, you are. Because you're ignoring Witch capabilities to be undetectable to tech (something that Ice mentioned at Barin, and that Merlin's development of magic sensors was a monumental breakthrough), that the Russians (instead of the Imperial Japanese, oddly enough) are obsessed with submersible carriers and that the Fandance can be carrier launched (which they must have been because the Fandance has a short operational range).And once again, magic. Magic is a fucking reality in this world, seeing as that's what won the Martian War.
“Got them!” Merlin calls. “These two have been active against the TAF for a while! Tan one is nicknamed the jackal, the black one is the raven! This is the first time they've been seen together before!” “Great. So at least they're not usually a pair.” you grunt, standing the wyvern on it's right wing and spinning away from an attack by the Jackal. “Any other data?” “Nothing!” She says. “the Turks have a high bounty on them though.” “I can see why!” “Missile lock! Missile lock!” Merlin cries as the jackal fires that hail of mini missiles again. It hurts, physically, to outfly them all. Both the G forces and something new. “Warhound, warhound, how copy?” You hear, suddenly over the local net. “Little busy tower.” You respond- only people that talk like that are tower guys and grunts. You wonder which this is. “Warhound, I got someone wants to talk to you.”  Tell them to stow it! I'm busy up here! If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!
Anyone remember from last thread how Ghost promised us that we would hate Volgin even more?I bet he has something to do with this.
>>37832023> If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!
>>37832023> Tell them to stow it! I'm busy up here!Fuck help, we got this
>>37832023[x] If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!I really hope it's not Ice telling us to not push ourselves.
>>37832023 If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!"Spit it out already!"
[x] OtherThey can talk but I can't promise I'll answer!
>>37832023 Tell them to stow it! I'm busy up here!
>>37832023>[X] If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!
>>37832023 If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!
Oh, maybe Volgin was on the plane.He's the "defector"
 If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!
>>37832023>[x] If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!I swear to fuck if the Russians were carrying a TLS onboard their transport plane and JUST told us...
>>37832023> Tell them to stow it! I'm busy up here!Part of me wants to hear the advice, but the other part of me is concerned about wasting cognitive resources talking to some asshole about a thing that doesn't have a 100% chance of helping us.
>>37832023> Tell them to stow it! I'm busy up here!
>>37832072>a TLSA what now?
>>37832059If Volgin was on the plane...Who was the phone?
>>37832023>[x] If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!The question is, who's going to be on the other line? Someone that can help or was the plane filled with GRU?
>>37832023>[x] Tell them to stow it! I'm busy up here!
>>37832086uuuuuh a transport layer security?
>>37832023> It hurts, physically, to outfly them all. Both the G forces and something new.
>>37832023>[X] Tell them to stow it! I'm busy up here!
>>37832101Yep, time to get those piece of Tomcat-chan out of our chest and get VDNI
>>37832086Tactical Laser System.It's a laser cannon that's meant to be mounted on a plane. Originally the Morrigan and its successor, the Falken. From Ace Combat 5 and Ace Combat Zero.
>>37832086TacticalLaserSystemBacically the thing on the pictured jet. It can one shot other jets.
>>37832023[x] Tell them to stow it! I'm busy up here!
>>37832086Tactical laser systemfor maximum buddytimes
>>37832120>>37832122Sokolov already built that for the Air Force though...
>>37832137And for ones hitting renegade SOLGs
>>37832117We are likely going to wake up in a hospital bed in Strana Mechty.>>37832138And the Russians don't have an equivalent?
>>37832023>[x] If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!
>>37832169>And the Russians don't have an equivalent?They did, then we stole the scientist who made it, Sokolov was THEIR guy making all this stuff, he's now ours.
>>37832179>Sokolov was THEIR guy making all this stuff, he's now ours.Granted, since the Fandances are equipped with All-Directional Missiles and Electromagnetic Launchers, they've got them too. Maybe they already have the plans and processes needed to make more.
>>37832179It's certainly possible that someone else took over, I mean shit we're fighting a pair of Fandances right nowIn any event, time for me to drive home. Fly safe you bastard
>>37832199Well they were, then we stole a Fandance, killed and captured all their scientists working on Fandances, and now we just had the rest of their scientists defect...
>>37832023> If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!Tell us quick before we sacrifice our ears for more CRAZY HIGH GS
>>37832208They've had Fandances for a while, though we did just decapitate their production and research when we did that op with Brigette.
You know what a massive blindside right now?The person who wants to speak to us is Putin. Who then tells us to drop to below 2000 feet.
>>37832242I imagine we're already under than.
>>37832023> If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!make it snappy, tower
>>37832242I would not expect that, that said I don't think that will happen. If it does I'll be fucking shocked.
>>37832242And risking international Incident?Putin won't that stupid. Unless he is very desperate, or he got something else with same effect.
>>37832242Hitting his own sides aces with a burst missile is way too blatant. He is working against the soviet government, but not openly.
>>37832242Stonehenge is all the way in France though, and Putin sure as hell isn't allowed to fire it.
>>37832290Putin is Incarge of the KGB, not Russia. Thus he doesn't have to give a shit about politics.
>>37832300>Hitting his own sides acesThey are not on his side.
>>37832315The only one on Putin's side is Putin.
>>37832300That could have changed, maybe he decided to make his move. That being said I still think the plane was a Trojan Horse.
>>37832300>He is working against the soviet government, but not openly.Uhh, I think sending two of his witches along with the Matron-General to Barin was openly working against the Soviet Government...
>>37832300I dunno. I doubt it's him, but it'd be a pretty easy sell to higher brass>they were over an Allied air base>dog-fighting the eagle himself>shit went wrong
>>37832333i believe that was due to the witches conclaves coming together to study something new independent of the state of the warring nations.
>>37832345Mistakes were made
>Be listening to Ace combat themes, BVB and 5FDP while waiting for Ghost.The wait is killing me.>>37832345He also has beef with the GRU, he'd probably pin it on them.
>>37832333WITCHES DO AS THEY PLEASEEXCEPT EACH OTHER IN SOVIET RUSSIA
>>37832333I thought that was witch politics, and I doubt the Soviets would turn down an opportunity to learn what makes one of NATO's top aces tick.
>>37832369>to study something new independent of the state of the warring nations.pfthahahahaha>>37832385>and I doubt the Soviets would turn down an opportunity to learn what makes one of NATO's top aces tick.>thinking Stalin got that intel from those witchesoh you are funny anon.
>>37832385At this point it's kill or be killed, and the soviets are not picking option two.
>>37832410They are GETTING option 2 weather the like it or not.
Well anons, I'm off for a shower, I hope that we are still alive on my return.
Time to give Merlin some new PTSD to deal with.
>>37832495Pretty Thick and Strong Darkchocolatecake?
>>37832540Exactly.We are going to get Merlin soooo much cake.We also need a buttload of downtime after this.
>>37832566And surgery-that tomcat heart is getting to us
>>37832566Gotta survive before downtime first.
>>37832566Maybe its time to just get Katya, Ice and Slider to a room and holding hands until morning
>>37832566Don't worry, we'll have plenty of downtime.WHEN WE'RE DEAD!
>>37832616>only holding hands>No mention of tying up Ice>No mention of Slider domming Ice>No mention of Katya teasing a tied up Iceಠ_ಠ
>>37832616Yep, its been too long coming, after this we get all three together, clear out the hanger, get them in top of the Wyvern, drop our pants and say "Who's going to be first?"
>>37832566If we get the implants we'll be relearning shit but we will also have some down time.>>37832616That's pretty lewd anon, I approve!
>>37832641who said they would stop at morning anon?>>37832642oh god that mental image is awesome
>>37832641sorry, not interested in hardcore stuffs. >>37832642*Beat*"paper-rock-scissor?""okay"
>>37832659We could get Fapfic to write it!
[x] If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!You turn away from another attack, spoiling a shot the raven was trying to line up on you. “If it'll help me beat this thing, I'm all ears!” You call. You can hear Alyssa in the background, talking to someone. Finally, a new voice comes over the radio. His English is heavily accented and he sounds hesitant at best. “U-um, hello? Is this the Demon?” “Among many other names.” You say, somewhat tersely. “Little busy up here.”“A-ah, right! I am sorry. My english is, how you say, not so good.” You break away from a gun run to yank your fighter into the vertical, spinning it around it's axis using the 3d thrust vectoring and slipping under the jackal as it screams overhead, kicking an agile loose at it. “The pilots of those machines, they are not so skilled.” He says. “They are very young, and-”“Not so skilled my ass!” You cry, diving away and kicking into an aileron roll. “They are equipped with vehicular direct neural interface.” He says. “It makes controling their aircraft as simple as breathing for them.” He says. “But there is another thing. They are witches. The both of them are poorly trained, they were rushed into service when-”“When you lost white butterfly?” You say, suddenly chopping your throttle to nil and popping your airbrakes wide open, slamming against your harness and watching the jackal, who was trying to slot in, go shooting past. 1/2
“Yes.” he says, his voice becoming... unstable. “They are like her, they do not deserve to die. They are not knowing what they do!” “That doesn't help me at all.” You point out, placidly. You don't feel placid, but you manage to come across as calm. You shoulda been an actor. “They are young an inexperienced.” He says. “They have relied on their technology until now. You are a better pilot by far and your equipment is better.” “So you called me to tell me they don't deserve to die and that I can beat them.” You ask. “Well, gee, thanks for the moral dilemma, but-”“If you can get onto their radio channels and I can talk to them, I believe they will land.” He says. “Merlin, how long would you need?” You ask, diving away from the two of them breifly, before zooming up and over the top. “Sixty seconds. Less if you get in tight. They're communicating.” She says. A minute- it's doable, but damn is it going to hurt to do.  Done deal, doc.  No way. I'll try to damage them and force them down.  Sorry doc. If it makes you feel any better, it's my decision. You tried.
>>37832616>Not spending next few days in a coma after once again pushing yourself to the limit.
>>37832694> Sorry doc. If it makes you feel any better, it's my decision. You tried.
>>37832694> Done deal, doc.
>>37832694>[x] Done deal, doc.at this point talking them down may be easier than killing them
>>37832694I'm a bit leery of this. Done deal, doc.
>>37832694>[x] Done deal, doc.Powerful niggarty indeed.
>>37832694>[x] Sorry doc. If it makes you feel any better, it's my decision. You tried.We are dying, people!

>>37832694[x] Done deal, doc.
>>37832694> OtherGet Merlin working on talking to them while we try to damage them and force them down, but no promises.
>>37832694> No way. I'll try to damage them and force them down.It will more convincing if we can scare them anyway
>>37832694 Done deal, doc. Any other option ends in tearsNot like this one does any better
>>37832726No, we are being injured. There is an important difference between the two.
>>37832694> Done deal, doc.HA HA TIME FOR ACE COMBAT BULLSHIT

>>37832789>>37832806i thought he gave us Bridget lewds tho?
>>37832863That was Hornet.
>>37832863Uh, no. That was Feelthy. Fapfic hasn't written anything ever.
>>37832863Hornet gave us that.
>>37832881>>37832884>>37832889i was wrong then thank you for fixing that.
>>37832779That remains to be seen. Provided my time is tied up with my main project and all. I have little time to work on anything more at the moment. I do have Ideas I wanted to put down, I just don't have the time.
>>37832694> I'll try but no promises.
>>37832769>if it works we're gonna get really drunk after thisEven if it does work we're getting wheeled out of this plane on a gurney...if we're lucky
>>37833056The White Knight's Burden, truly ours to carry
>>37833097Guardian of Witches. We never found out what ever happened to the people Bridgette captured.
>>37833118They were not witches, not our concern.
>>37833056Either way we're getting drunk at some point after this because holy shit, this has been exciting. When we eventually get back to Poland, Mav and Youngspawn better have some moonshine for us.>>37833118Didn't need to know, if we get the implants we might find out.
>>37833147>if we get the implantsoh we're getting them after this clusterfuck
>>37833171the fuck we are, that shit in our brain, you think that's any safer that fucking shrapnel in our chest?
>>37833171Depending if we are going to be wheeled out there, they might just put them in while we are unconscious.
>>37832694>[x] Done deal, doc.PAY THE BLOOD PRICE! Our Gnomery-goodness will serve us well!
>>378332031, its not in our brain, its located near our brain stem, and 2, yes, seeing as its designed to be safe, and not designed to be luck our plane exploding under usalso did you not bother reading the last 5 threads at all?
>>37833171not if it case brain damage, psychosis, paranoia, Alzheimer's or early death.
>>37833203It's been confirmed for non-intrusive (easy to remove). It's also got few known health risks.All together, upgrading is our best chance at survival.
>>37833203Wow, someone didn't bother to read the previous threads at all, seriously pretty much every single concern got addressed, and its a hell of a lot safer than shrapnel from being shot down...>>37833217Right, so you didn't actually read those threads and now you're just samefagging without basis.
>>37833171Oh definitely, they're probably the only way Fronk going to make it out of the war alive unless we come across some voodoo magic shit.
>>37833203Well someone's gotta man up and do it
>>37833203Don't merlin has designed less intrusive version of that implant?>>37833232Don't forget to enhance our lung.Then our heart.Maybe our digestive system while at it.Hmm, some mechanderite will do nicely....
>>37833241>voodoo magic shitBrigitte route confirmed
[x] Done deal, doc. You sigh internally. Externally you can't- you're inhaling against a ribcage that feels way, way too tight against your lungs. “Done deal, doc.” You say. “Sixty seconds.” “Get in close, Frank.” Merlin directs. “They've got a tightbeam communications link, the closer you can get, the faster I can do this.”You slot in on Jackal, closing to well inside gun range, trusting that an unskilled kid isn't going to buy into the concept of a warrior's death and pop her speedbrakes in your face, causing a collision. Her control over the aircraft is damned impressive- You're struggling, even now, to match her turn for turn. You're keeping an eye out for Raven, too, who you expect to attempt another of her slashing, hit-and-run attacks. You're hoping she does. Merlin's head is under the hood- she's struggling to get your radio, ECM suite, and her talent to let her do what she wants. You'd have missed the Raven had it not been for the colision alarm screaming in your ears. You react by instinct, rolling the wyvern inverted and slewing onto a new heading. 1/2
>>37833250Don't forget the hip and dick upgrades.We want them both to survive the coming storm.
“Hey Sam.” You say, chuckling to yourself and feeling something start to pool around your nose in your mask. “How close did you need to be.”“As close as you can get.”“How's two meters?” You ask. You're inverted, underneath Raven, matching her practically by feel- you don't have the luxury of VDNI, this is all talent and skill. Merlin is unimpressed. “Close enough.” She says. You peel away from Raven as the Jackal comes in on a run, loosing a pair of missiles at you- standard AA-11s, your last TALDs defeat them easily in combination with your turn. “We're in!” Merlin beams. “Doctor? We're in.” he doesn't thank you, but you note the two fighters roll wings-level and stop maneuvering. At least they're listening. You're almost surprised when they turn out to sea and adopt a steep, but workable, glide path. “It worked.” You say, astonished. You set down right behind them, curiously not feeling too drained. Tired, yes, hungry and sore, but not that dead tiredness that seemed to have soaked into your bones after Berlin, or after your clash with the headhunters over Poland. You're directed towards the same hangar, though you're not escorted by armed humvees with weapons pointed at you the entire way. Your curious flight pulls inside, and you note the four witches on the ground waiting for you, Clarissa wearing her arm in a simple sling, her flight suit ripped open at the shoulder. You shut down and pop your canopy as a middle-aged man steps from one of the humvees and someone wheels a ladder over for you. Ice is the first one up it. “Frank you-” She says, tears forming in the corner of her eyes as she looks at you.  Look awful, I know. How are the twins? I'll live. Let's meet these kids.
>>37833277I am pretty convinced we only need Hip upgrade.Fronks Mighty Missile will held as long as the Hip endure.
>>37833277Frank's main armament is fine the way it is, the hips and perhaps stamina will need an upgrade.No need to fix what's not broken.

>>37833436maybe if you could stop shitposting long enough to be the best then you might be worthy of that but no all it is is shitpost shitpost shitpost you're like my mother-in-law, you never leave well enough alone
>Frank passes out and wakes up like this.
>>37833297> I'll live. Let's meet these kids.Did someone say hugs?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRfKaJytYG0
>>37833436How is it feel to have 'fans' like this?
>>37833463He's already woke up getting lap pillow-d by SliderThe man has seen the promised land, and it is good
>>37833462Jesus Christ dude, leave it alone. Can't we just enjoy the ride.
>>37833487Not to mention has tattoos.
>>37833462god damn man
>>37833462The only shitposter here is you anon.
>>37833436Oi.Oi, you.Just wanted to say that I just caught up with this quest while adhering to the rules of the drinking game outlined here >>37824359.I just wanted to say that at this point I've gone through 6 drinks in 40 minutes, and this was the last post before I caught up at last. I'm fucking plastered thanks to your efforts.Cheers.
>>37833535you are posting coherentlyyou are CHEATING
>>37833535You've done me proud anon. You've done me proud.
>>37833535Arn't you just proud of your self now?
>>37833552Maybe he he's german or russian or some shit.
>>37833535Putting a name on just to make this guy drink more.
>>37833462Speaking of shitposters, here's the guy that hates namefags.
>>37833552>>37833572It took me, like 10 mins to bang out that post.The fact that it is coherent pleases me so.So yeah.I am proud.Cheers.
>>37833535Have you really been drinking whenever OP wrote 'it's' instead of 'its'?
HEY GHOST.THIS anon >>37833602 needs more drinks.HIT EVERYTHING ON THE DRINK LIST THIS NEXT UPDATE.
 Look awful, I know. How are the twins?
>>37832208>Ghost is still goingGoddamn, even if we're probably about to end.
>>37833626Do you want to kill him?
>>37833463What doujin is that from?
>>37833645He did say it would probably be a late night but you're likely right.>>37833602You're my hero anon, you type better drunk then I type normal.
>>37833597But we all hate namefags. The only reason you should be namefagging in here is if you're creating OC for the quest or are writing for SWQU, i.e Merc, Mouse, Deme, Dante, and they're barely tolerable as it is. Hornet writes smut and feels on the side, Halley and Burning Grey do art, as does that guy who does the scribbles, and they're all faggots too. Fapfic? Fluff? They're cancer who don't contribute anything past sperging, so yeah, totally fine to blast them.
>>37833656Not doujin. It's a manga about aliums fighting and having human partners to provide temporary power boosts to them.
>>37833656Since its from Sekirei.... i gotta bet its not from doujin but from manga.
>>37833656Manga and it more feels the it looks its called skierie i may have missed typed the name but its close enough you will find it
>>37833678What's the hate on Hornet then? Ya hate him for the feels or smut?
>>37833669He's been running for ten hours and is on EST, I think it counts as a late night either way>>37833678I have a very hard time noticing the name field in most cases. I see someone yelling about namefags, look back, and go 'oh'.
>>37833696Anon hates him for the shitposting and shitstirring he does, he's also an unrepentant trolling asshole whenever he's not posting feels or smut.
 Look awful, I know. How are the twins?“Look awful.” you finish for her, pulling her down into a hug. She looks surprised, but doesn't fight it. “How are the twins?” She straightens up as you let go, but still hovers on the edge of the cockpit as you unstrap everything. “Still in shock, I think.” She says. “Clarissa hit her shoulder on the canopy rail when they ejected, we think it's broken.” “Fuck. Help me up?” You ask. She nods as you unhook your mask, letting a breif cascade of blood out of it. “God, Frank... “ Ice hisses at you. “I know.” You say, glad she's a witch as she helps you stand and exit the cockpit. You're a bit lightheaded, but everything seems to work. “How ya feeling, Merlin?” “S-sleepy.” She says. “Should I have Rachel carry you?” Ice asks. “N-no, that's-” Merlin interrupts herself with a jaw-cracking yawn. “That's ok. I-I'll just rest for a second, ok?” You look at Ice, who shares your worried glance. “Just a few seconds, kiddo.” You say. 1/2
>>37833678That's no excuse to shitpost, or follow him around and whine and bitch at every imagined slight. You're still shitposting whatever prevalent attitudes are.
>>37833678If it wasn't for Assholes like you shitposting about them, no one would care about them. Damn son, just chill already.
It's a bit of a challenge getting down the stairs, though by the time you're at the bottom, Merlin is exiting the cockpit herself. “How are you two?” You ask, walking over to Alyssa and Clarissa. Alyssa shrugs. “I'm- we're ok.” She says. “That- that was close.” You grin. “Tell me about it. At least you're not doing time in a burn ward.” Ice shoots you a look there, though she doesn't say anything. Alyssa nods. “Yeah, there's that. Hey, look, Frank, We're going to go lay down a while, ok? They've gotten us rooms at the hotel next door.” “Ok, take it easy.” You say, swaying on your feet now. You'd figured the lightheadedness was temporary, apparently you were wrong. Ice steps in next to you, wrapping an arm around your chest just under your arms, and pulling your arm over her shoulders. “Thanks boss.” you say, your words slurring a bit.“Maybe we ought to be going, too?” She asks. “Get you in a bed for a while?”  Lemme meet the kids, first.  Yeah, you're probably right.
>>37833720You are so full of shit. Like anyone but you cares. Grow a thicker skin, bitch, nobody's getting baited by this imaginary troll.
>>37833738> Lemme meet the kids, first.
>>37833738> Lemme meet the kids, first.VDNI, ho!
>>37833738>[X] Lemme meet the kids, first.INFANTS TERRIBLES
>>37833738> Lemme meet the kids, first.Nightmare fuel!
>>37833738> Yeah, you're probably right.
>>37833738> Lemme meet the kids, first.See them on eye and say:You all are pretty good
>>37833738[x] Yeah, you're probably right.We should get checked out by a healwitch first, though.
>>37833738> Lemme meet the kids, first. I worry what they might have done to these witches.
 Lemme meet the kids, first.
>>37833738>[x] Yeah, you're probably right.Not looking good for us is it?>>37833743I'm hardly imaginary, this is honestly the most insulted I have felt all night!
>>37833738> Yeah, you're probably right.Let's not have our first impression be vomiting blood everywhere. As metal as it would be.
>>37833738> Yeah, you're probably right.>>37833743I wasn't even the anon raging about him, face it, there are plenty who don't care for his antics outside of his writing.
>[x] Meet the kids. (keep it brief for safety) "You did well, kids. I haven't been pushed this hard for a while."
>>37833738>[x] Yeah, you're probably right.No need to scare them, don't suppose there's a healwitch around? Probably used up our luck for the day.
>>37833738>[x] Yeah, you're probably right.Like to meet them but god damn we need to get checked out first.
>>37833738>[x] Lemme meet the kids, first.Wipe the bib blood stains off, then go see the kiddies. We might get them in our squadron if we make nice with them here and give a good impression. We get two more impressionable nopants to prod us into getting the plane-to-brain stuff, and Merlin gets some new friends (and tech).
>>37833738> Yeah, you're probably right.We need medical aid ASAP.
>>37833738>[X] Lemme meet the kids, first. "You and Slider can join me in bed after if you want."
>>37833738>[x] Yeah, you're probably right.
>>37833738> Lemme meet the kids, first. Gaze upon what is by all rights a very tame face of war
>>37833781Squadron is over operational size already, sorry to burst your bubble.
>>37833781>We might get them in our squadron"Sorry son, no can do""But Nixon sir-""We got a deal with Chair Force. These kid goes to your brother Rex"
>>37833804Pffft, like that every stopped anyone from getting added.
>>37833766Hey, at least you get to enjoy drinking, goddamn I'd love some beer, or brandy or vodka.
>>37833795>very tame>taking the already-existing magical child soldier paradigm and lathering a healthy helping of ender's game on top of it
>>37833738> Lemme meet the kids, first.Lessee dem Rooskies first. Gotta dish out a knucklewich for that perfectly fine jet they gutted.
>>37833804>More steelwings.We're not QUITE over capacity on that front. >>37833738[x] Lemme meet the kids, first.
>>37833738> Yeah, you're probably right.Should be a heal witch near by or at least on base and we really should get looked at before meeting them. Fuck we sound fucked up.
>>37833830I meant Frank's half-dead, blood-besmirched mug as he's basically carried around by a witch
>>37833738> Lemme meet the kids, first.See what we would become! Also who would win in a dogfight Merlin/Frank vs Laika?
>>37833804Not really, nothing governs the size of a squadron, and we've only got 2 planes, we could easily fit another two in, and expand the roster plenty.
>>37833878Depend.If it become endurance battle then Laika has better chance to win, otherwise they pretty much equal.>>37833889Well, normally its around 12-24 steelwings, i imagine they are more or less same for witches.
>>37833889actually we only have 1 plane now.
>>37833912Oh yeah, Wyvern - Twins will be very hard to replace, due to lack of operational models. (At least ones with modifications that merlin has made.)
>>37833889>Witch pilot on witching plane with witch RIO And extra witch in the pod.That's a lotta potential witch.
>>37833912Oh yea, Damn, replacing that one will be a bear. Those planes aren't cheap.
>>37833912I'm so glad the twins are ok though
>>37833934cost isn't a concern when you are fighting a global war...and besides, this means the twins will finally get a upgraded Wyvern which will be equal to ours, IIRC the twin's Wyvern didn't have a few of Merlin's latest upgrades
>>37833942ohh ya so am i
>>37833934still cheaper than casting resurrection spell.
>>37833942>inb4 they're captured by Cretan police and shot for being Soviet agents because of mistaken identity
>>37833926Their's didnt have that many mods to it, didn't it?Ours was specifically modded to our needs.>>37833942Same. Wonder how long that shoulder will take to heal.
>>37833942That is true.
>>37833967Healwitches are a thing.
>>37833965We just saw them, mang.
>>37833967>Wonder how long that shoulder will take to heal.Healwitch bro, she'll be fine within a week unless Ghost decides she needs to sit on the sidelines for 8 months randomly.
>>37833981...it could still happen.
>>37833980But will they use it on them. Since the heal witches are obviously triaged to deal with the near death cases. Plus the twins still do need to sit it out for abit while waiting for their replacement plane.
>>37833981A lot can happen between two buildings in Greece, dude
>>37833949I was thinking the cost to get the materials to make them. The $$ is likely nothing right now, but the bleeding edge tech to create a Wyvern is likely to get harder and harder to do as the war drags on.
>>37833998Meh, if they have problem with local police it'll because drunk shenanigan or public indecency.
>>37833998Yeah and I guess Robo-Stalin could be a magical girl.>>37834000Goose is a heal witch, she can probably do broken bones.
>>37834014Not for tonight at least, shock is a hell of a thing....I hope somebody's walking them to their room, come to think of it
>>37834007>I was thinking the cost to get the materials to make them.The cost of the materials is the cheapest part of a plane...>but the bleeding edge tech to create a Wyvern is likely to get harder and harder to do as the war drags on.pft nope, Nato is dominating and has control over all their resources, they are not going to be facing shortages of things like Nazi Germany did.
>>37834000Witches are pretty rare and valuable, and there is a war on. Getting combat-experienced witches in a prominent front-line unit back to fighting shape would be something of a priority, even if the twins are smalltime.
[x] Lemme meet the kids, first. You shake your head doggedly. “Not yet. Lemme meet the kids.” “Frank-” “We'll be quick.” You say. “Sides, not like I'm going anywhere without you right now anyway, right?” “Y-yeah. I guess.” She says. The canopies on the fandances are single piece- they rise forward and lock so you can't see the pilots. The armed guards don't look too intimidated, but it takes time before a pair of slender legs appears across the side of the canopy. The girl is taller than you expected- you peg her age at 12 to 13, maybe 14 but only just. She looks around, terrified, but doesn't try to get back in her aircraft. She stands there for a second before a man in civilian clothes, escorted by a pair of security troops, arrives in another humvee. She sees him and shakes her head, spitting rapid fire Russian at him. He responds gently as she tears up- then says something and points to you. The other fandance's canopy opens, the dull black paint seeming to soak up the light around it. A girl with startling silver hair, cut short, steps out, descending the stairs while trying to keep her flight suit top down below her waist with one hand. 1/2
>>37834017>Goose is a heal witchTIME FOR GOOSE TO SHINE!!>inb4 ghost shifted her again.
>>37834000>Since the heal witches are obviously triaged to deal with the near death cases.Have you actually been reading this quest or any other 89 quest?Healwitches come in all shapes and sizes and roles, from pediatritians to surgeons to doctors to pararescue field medics, but they are not a single role.
She calls out to her- friend? Sister? You're not sure, though you can't see much familial resemblance, and they both walk over to you and Ice, slowly. Fearfully. One of them, the one with the reddish-brown hair, the first one out, begins speaking at you in Russian, her voice trembling. She looks up at you, tears in her eyes. You smile sadly and shake your head. “No habla, kiddo.” you say. A look of confusion crosses her face and she switches to German. You feel Ice stiffen at that, and a few looks go around the room. You shake your head again. “Don't do that one either.” She shakes her head, openly crying now, and wraps her arms around your midsection, her tears soaking the front of your flight suit. You look at Ice helplessley as the second one joins her, the both of them wailing their eyes out. “What did they say?” You ask the doctor. “That they were sorry.” He says, simply. “And why do they speak fluent german?” Ice asks. The doctor looks distinctly... uncomfortable, and you get the sudden feeling you just stepped in something nasty. Just your luck.
>>37834051>inb4 That's it for this week!
>>37834051...Oh God Dammit.
>>37834051Probably thought it was VR like Laika
>>37834051Kidnapped German Witches from the Soviet's initial invasion of Germany?Kids of kidnapped German Witches that were hidden by Stalin?
>>37834077Probably the first one, fuck.
>>37834035>that picTheir Krauts?>>37834051THEY'RE FUCKIN' KRAUTS? The FUCK did that happen? The hell Ivan! I'm actually shocked right now.
And that's it for the night!So, let's see... that's what? about ten hours? haha. Probably not doing a marathon run like this again, at least not for a while. Anyway, we may do a Saturday thread, but it won't be from Frank's POV. I have a couple people I'd like to do, but we'll see. I'm kinda out of it right now, and have to get started on Raikov 3. But that's it for the night, guys! thanks for sticking around so long, we'll be back, if not Saturday, then next Tuesday at the regular time. So, till then, cheers gents!
>>37834051I don't know how to react by now....Putin will need to explain a lot of thing.
>>37834094Cheers Ghost, get some sleep now.
>>37834091Nah Young's youngest is older than those two.
>>37834094How long till replacement plane?
>>37834094>Possible Saturday thread!YAY!>Not Frank POVBoooo, Well unless its Ice or one of Spellcaster, can't complain too much.
>>37834094Thanks for the thread Ghost.>I have a couple people I'd like to doI bet you do, lewd Ghost.
>>37834094Thanks for the run! We should have a drink sometime.
>>37834094Cheers, Ghost. I can't participate as much as I'd like this semester, but you do good work.
>>37834095Who said it was Putin?
>>37834094Thanks for running Ghost, youre quest got me drunk as fuck before a long ass flight, and for that, I thank you.
>>37834094If Frank doesn't get a MOH for this mission then the entire high command needs their shit slapped hard.
>>37834128Fuck off Loki
>>37834094Thanks for the run bro.
>>37834094Good run as always Ghost! I did not expect this ending.
>>37834128>>37834139At least he might got some idea what happen here.
>>37834128...God dammit Merc/LokiIt was Volgin who sanctioned the kidnappings wasn't it.
>>37834128I totally trust you Merc.
>>37834136Doesn't he already have one?
>>37834128that fuckin' cat>>37834094Thanks for the run, even though you've made me very late to get to sleep.I doubt that you're sticking around for answers, but does Frank look more or less dead than the last time they had to drag him out his fighter?
>>37834164no he was denied it since he acted against orders.
>>37834168 less transitioning to more. The damage had more time to manifest in the air post-berlin.
>>37834179>he acted against orders.which action was that for again?
>>37834087Captured, defectors, GDR, German minorities in the Baltic states and Russia.
>>37834128why the fuck haven't we killed volgin yetfucking seriously we need to snuff him out now
>>37834164Nop, since Tanana was against orders but I don't think Berlin was so he might be awarded it for that.>>37834190No such things as the GDR, Poland was split. Could be Volga Germans but by the reaction of the doc I don't think so.
>>37834190>GDRIIRC it was Poland that get divided on this 'verse, not German.>>37834198Patience, anon. Patience.
>>37834184IIRC Tananawe were told to bug out, but instead we played the hero>>37834182Thanks.
>>37834201Or they are just educated. Maybe trained as spies.
>>37834190GDR never existed, and the Baltics retained their independence. Well. Up until this war, at least.
>>37834182So he looks worse?But his body is not registering the pain s before?
>>37834223More like doesn't look so bad because he hasn't had time to stew as much yet
>>37834223pretty much. His body doesn't know how bad it's hurt right now, it's still getting damage reports in. Kinda like radiation. It's lethal in a high enough dose, it just takes time to kill you.
>>37834223I think what he's saying is that we got on the ground quicker and it hasn't hit us yet. Basically Frank's remaining minutes of consciousness can probably be counted on 2 hands right now
Guys, imagine if all of these were decided with /tg/ dice.I shudder when thinking about this.
>>37834272Was the blood that come out from the mask just a bad nosebleed's worth or an entire mouthful?
>>37834272Shit that is serious. So we kind of effectively reduced Frnk's life span didn't we?So who do you have in mind for the different POV?
>>37834293It was enough to pour.
>>37834289>HERE COMES THE SNOOOOW>NAT 1
>>37834272I was half-expecting those fandances to be using masers from the way you were describing the pain as something new
>>37834289That's one of my great regrets, that it's not because I'm dumb. Next time, though. ohoho, next time....>>37834293Mouthful.
>>37834318>That's one of my great regrets, that it's not because I'm dumb.Ghost, it would be incredibly dumb to leave it up to the dice, so don't be stupid in your sleep deprivation.
>>37834289>>37834318Depending how the story was told, it'd start to sound like a particularly painful Prince of Persia run...>no no no, that's not how it went>maybe I'm mis-remembering things
>>37834318>that it's not because I'm dumb.Uhh its more the opposite, that its not because unconsciously you're smart enough to not use /tg/ dice, when quests go "We need dice" and they don't ever bother answering "Why do you need dice really?" then its a bad idea to use dice, this quest would be worse off if it did use dice.
>>37834313Do we use low roll or high roll?because for low roll that really nice.>>37834318Hahaha. In other hand, yeah. We don't really need dice for this quest. Maybe for mini-games though.
>>37834370High roll of courseBecause Wrenloft.
>>37834318How roughed up is Frank?You compared it to radiation, so is he suffering at the stage where he is losing motor skills more often/spots or are the intervals between him rocering are taking much longer?Also how isSlider taking all of this?Also what did the twins say while Slider was trapped inside?Also if we did this even a bit wrong could the condition would have been worse?
>>37834318I'm glad we're nodice for sw89. They certainly have their purpose, but that purpose is to remove the CYOA-esque incentive to choose the best choice while simultaneously robbing the voters of agency- good choices can end poorly, bad decisions can be amazingly successful.One may say that that's realistic but this is a narrative, not a simulation. Nothing wrong with any of those, but they serve very different purposes and audience tastes.
>>37834392>Also if we did this even a bit wrong could the condition would have been worse?Both witches dead, no idea about the kidnappings, frank and merlin both tired out terribly, out of action and in a coma for at least a week.
>>37834400>One may say that that's realisticIt's certainly not realistic to end the quest with the MC dying because when they were walking down the street they rolled a 1 on a random encounter table, tripped on the pavewalk and snapped their neck when they fell over.I shit you not, this has happened, and more than once...Dice have a purpose, in this quest however they don't belong.
>>37834392Fairly, and degrading. Not sure where we'll pick up next week just yet. couple ideas thoughNot quite yet, the quiet time in Barin and relative quiet in Poland has helped. She hasn't seen. yet. Well, they came up with a new nickname for her, so there's that. No. Saving the girls was the worst personal health choice here. well, physically.
>>37834429No, that strictly falls under the category of "The QM/DM/ST is being an absolutely autistic chucklefuck." Like all of those 'that gm' stories about rolling skill checks to climb stairs that totally aren't made up.
>>37834444>No. Saving the girls was the worst personal health choice here. well, physically.I have neither surprise nor regret
>>37834444But best for our soul, for sparing these Russo-Teutonic whizkids.And capturing their juicy, juicy jets is the optimum strategic outcome.. ALL THE ESPIONAGE!
>>37834444>No. Saving the girls was the worst personal health choice here. well, physically.Saving the girls was the complete right choice.Now if we hadn't saved our deoys and made it that the MIGs didn't shoot off so many missiles that Ice and Slider had to intercept some with shields, I'd had been happy to have them up flying with us.
>>37834478If we really take them with us, i can imagine the girls at base will greatly amused.
>>37834478Its only the 2nd and 3rd VDNI fandance we've had a part in capturing.KEK
*Ice Afeard*"Frank?" Tabitha asked for the fifth time in a row, trying not to cry in front of the man she was all but carrying down the corridor.She'd seen Frank like this before, that was what she told herself. She should be used to it by now, used to seeing him come back from a hard fight as though he was only minutes away from-"I'm here." Frank finally replied, his head rolling forward to look down at her."...Sure about that?" She smiled sadly up at him, trying to put on a brave face."Sure 'm sure," he moaned, blood leaking from his lips and dripping onto his flight suit. "Oh... oh man..."They stopped walking in the corridor right then, Ice whimpering as she reached up to wipe the blood from his face. She could see it in his eyes, see the life draining out of them. It was as if he knew he had only minutes to go.'Not like this, please no.'"God dammit, Frank." She whispered, unable to stop the world from growing so damned watery right then."Sorry..." he managed to say. "Usually not this bad-" and then he coughed, a miserable heaving cough that robbed him of all strength in his legs. Blood splattered to the floor, and he collapsed against the witch. Tabitha had to adjust herself to catch him before he slipped to the floor. "Just need a nap, is all-""N-no, I am not taking you to your room, we are going to the hos-""Tabitha." Frank said, with sudden forcefulness that froze the witch in place. "Dealt with it before. Just need to sleep.""Frank you can't-""Please do this for me." His plea destroyed any of her objections right then. He knew. Had to know."Okay, I'll... take you to bed.""Finally bein' honest..." Frank croaked, still managing to smile. She managed not to sob while laughing.-
>>37834448But that is exactly what happens when a QM decides "you know what my quest needs? Dice, we need some dice just so we can roll dice."
>>37834542Oh no, no no. It's far, far too late to try and shoehorn them in now. sorry for giving that impression!
>>37834515Sure, but there are probably updates or differences in the design details that can help us understand how the Russians are making progress here.It's not like we captured the first V2s, but having more than one jet to pick apart is a great boon. Learn and Incorporate, Merlin! Learn and Incorporate it all!
>>37834542No, that's what happens when the QM decides "I need an excuse to write horrible shit"
>>37834555My point was that it doesn't matter what time you try to shoehorn them in, if there is no good reason for including them, if the quest is not better because of their addition, then don't add dice to quests.Too many QM's out there just think that they need dice to make a quest 'whole', very few ever actually get the benefits out of them, most of the time they just cause problems needlessly.
Huh.What if.What if we incorporated the Germans into our squadron?Mixed Wyvern/Fandance/SuperStriker Witches Spellcaster?
>>37834555Ghost, what are the numerical callsigns for the witches in spellcaster?
>>37834523Laying it on there a bit thick Feelthy, might want to dial the edge back a fair bit.
>>37834577These girls need therapy and intel relaying, not attempting to fly with a squadron who doesn't share a language while they lack complete training.
>>37834577Personally, I want them transferred into PJ unit. Give Laika more friends, maybe. enlarge Pierce family

>every single Fandance sent into action has been capturedCommies gotta be butt flustered
>>37834606or shot down.
>>37834604I am reasonably certain that it does not work that way comrade>>37834598Here's a radical thought, maybe see if their actual parents are still alive
>>37834606>maybe if we throw enough Fandances at him, he'll literally fly himself to death!
>>37834614if volgin is involved... either dead or hostages back in russia.
>>37834618Nah see now we've got enough of our own Fandances to send them back at their Fandances, while Frank recuperates in Southern France with Ice, Slider and Katya.
>>37834606>>37834611>"Damned American dog! Everything we send against him, he shoots down. Those he does not shoot down, he seduces to his side. Who is this man?!"
>>37834618That just might work, though
>>37834635Except we won't be able to fly for a long while now we're out of action, we need witchery medical magic, we need to get Tomcat-chan out of our ribs and we need to get VDNI and adapt to using it.

'Tuebor', we're living up to that, aren't we, guys?
>>37834752>>37834771>>37834778'Tuebor' is the Bishop family motto, it's Latin, means 'Will protect'.
>>37834523She tried talking to him as they slowly made their way down the corridor. Tried to discuss the fight against the Fandances, but ultimately Frank was unable to remember what he'd done in the sky. He couldn't even remember what the two girls he'd just killed himself to save looked like. He asked if the twins were okay several times, straining to hear Tabitha assure him that they were okay, banged up but alive and well.He didn't notice when she steered him away from his assigned room, eyes open but seeing nothing. He didn't react when they left the barracks, his only reaction to the early morning sun was to shiver.Heavy enough that she struggled to carry him, but she didn't dare summon her familiar now. He felt cold, unutterably cold."So tired," he groaned. "Just wanna...""I know, Frank, I know I know I know."-"This is a hospital isn't it," Frank mumbled his accusation."Couldn't help it," Ice sniffled. "I'm sorry Frank. I'm sorry I worry so much.""Jus' something t' get used to," he grunted, trying to adjust himself on the bed. The most he was able to do was move one of his arms an inch. She lay against him, arms wrapped tightly around the shivering pilot, trying to keep him warm even as he seemed to just sap the heat away from her own body."Rachel says you're a piece of shit for m-making me cry," Tabitha shook her head. "A-acting like this is nothing-""Barely feel a thing.""She's telling the others," She squeezed him. "Except for M-Merlin, she's asleep too, t-totally out cold. You're going to have the whole squadron in here any minute now, so try to stay awake, okay?"No response."Okay?" she asked again, giving him a light shake."Uh huh." For a moment, their eyes met. To her, it was as though he was looking through her, seeing something she couldn't."We all got a lot to say, be rude of you to just... go away.""Goin' nowhere fast.""Asshole.""Guess I am."
>>37834803Agents of B.I.S.H.O.P.
>>37834845Tabitha stole a glance at the door to the hospital room, hoping that Rachel had returned. Ideally with a doctor or nurse in tow."Hey Frank?""Nnngh.""You... were really amazing up there." He'd finally stopped shivering right then. She could hear his heart beat slowing through his chest, his breathing less erratic. "I wish you could see it like I do. Th-there's nothing else like it.""Huh.""You could have killed those kids, I- I even wanted you to do it, wanted you to stay safe. But you saved them. Y-you're a hero to m- them.""Guardian of Witcherrsss..." he slurred. "Shall Defend.""A Guardian does me no good if he's..." Tabitha couldn't even finish, burying her face against his chest, trembling as she felt one of his hands rest on her back. "God, Frank...""...Guess it does gehme into some trrrrbrrr.""I know it's not up to me, but I hate seeing you like this!" Tabitha wailed. "I hate that I can't help you!""Helpin' me jusfine...""I'm not Rachel, I'm not Katya-""Tab-""Just your commander, it's all I *should* be, really!" His bloodied uniform was clenched tightly in her fists. "It would be so much easier to watch you kill yourself if I didn't care so much about you!"She felt his hand slip away from her back.-There was a time when Tabitha Kazanski did not feel this way about Frank Bishop.She could remember the arguments from before he had taken on Merlin as his RIO. How he seemed to do everything in his power, in conjunction with his fellow Asshole-At-Arms to piss her off. The flybys on the Saratoga that had gotten coffee spilled on her nearly a half dozen times. Rachel's 'betrayal' by saying that he wasn't "all that bad." Purposefully loud conversations between him and Maverick about "technique" for relieving specific needs at sea that always happened to take place in front of her office door. Even now she hadn't entirely forgiven him for that last bit.In a lot of ways, she had to thank Merlin for changing Frank.
>>37835291Toot, toot!USS Fronk heading out to the Arctic Sea!
>>37835291Aw yiss, writefagging.
>>37835291It was more than just turning over a new leaf. Merlin had given Frank a new purpose for flying. He flew for her, for his fellow squadron-mates. He somehow managed to worm his way into Spellcaster's family. When Maverick struggled to understand why Orion had left her behind without so much as a goodbye, Frank had been her shoulder to cry on. When Rachel had her own moments where her brave and wild front couldn't deal with the reputation she'd earned, he never judged her. When Katya had left everything she knew behind for a new life, Frank had become an Ace in a day to rescue her.When the reality of war cost Tabitha sleep, made her worry night after night that there would come a time that she would be unable to keep her squadron in one piece, Frank had been there to ease those fears.When he learned of Wendy's own personal hell, he dove into the world of witch politics without hesitation to rescue her. Gone face to face with a Matron to retrieve something precious to Tabitha, something she thought she'd never see in her lifetime.At Tanana, he'd almost given his life for witches and pilots he barely knew. Did it time after time over Japan, over Iceland. Over Berlin. Poland. And now he'd done it again, for a pair a witches he could barely remember saving now.She was afraid he'd finally succeed giving his life up for someone else, before she could say what she needed to say to him.-"It's unprofessional," Tabitha began, "for me to act like I do around you, and I know that. I know that Commander Laroux is right, that I'm trying to hold you back.""Nobody's perfect." Frank muttered."Hah... j-jerkass, I'm tryin' to say something here..." She took a deep breath, stealing another glance at the door, familiar manifesting on its own as she looked back at him. "There's... people who are here right now because of you. We all owe you so much, and you're just... fading away like this."When he didn't respond, she crawled atop him, legs straddling his waist.

>>37835645Oh, I figured that as well, but if we DO get dropped, there's still somewhere where he can post the rest so i can read it.
>>37835583"Frank?"His eyes were focused elsewhere, a contented look on his face. She leaned closer, listening for his heartbeat, for breathing. Nothing."You're NOT going to get the last word with me again!"She shook him by the shoulders, felt for a pulse. CPR, just like she'd been trained, pounded on his chest when he failed to respond."...You can't do this, Frank," she sobbed. "Can't leave me, not like this." Her fists beat against his chest again and again until grief made it impossible to even manage that."You can't leave us Frank. It's not fair."She pressed herself against Frank, hugging him and wishing she could pull him back to the world. Not believing he was gone."Come back to me, Frank Bishop. Th-that's an order."Closing her eyes, Tabitha pressed her lips to his, the blue light of her magic drowning out the world around them.-She awoke to someone poking her rather vigorously on the back.
>>37835782>She awoke to someone poking her rather vigorously on the back.Slider or Katya's witch dick? Or both?
>>37835782"You order him to come back to you?" Rachel asked. "That's in like the third or fourth book of Dragonri-""R-RACHEL!?"Tabitha tried to push away from Frank, realizing that there were a pair of hands, his hands, holding her against him. A look of terror spread across her face as she noticed the camera in her XO's hand."Uhbwuh haaah huh..."Hearing a loud snore, Tabitha looked back to her pilot. She found him sleeping peacefully, that same smile remained plastered on his face."I walked in, just as you kissed him and did the... thing." Slider said quietly, sitting in one of the guest seats. "You just... collapsed, Tab. Out like a light.""Guh...huhbuh-""I finally managed to find a doc to come in. We, uh, couldn't quite separate you guys. You were hugging him almost as hard as I would have.""F-Frank was-""Dead clinically, when you did that. Wasn't he?" Rachel looked away; Tabitha couldn't respond. "We determined he's fine, more or less. Won't wake up for a while, he's utterly exhausted. Like you." She stood up out of the chair. "Well, time to get some photos printed. I'll... I'll s-see you later.""Rachel, you can- I can-""Thanks for saving him, Tabby." Slider said, tears running down her cheeks when she finally looked back at her friend. "Stay with him awhile, won't you?" She walked briskly out of the room, not looking back."Goddammit, Frank." Falling back against Frank, Tabitha let out a shaky breath.At least he was warm again.
