“If you don't mind me asking, how did you first manifest?” She looks surprised. “You don't know?” “Requesting classified documents from my own government is simply a pain. Requesting them from the Japanese means you get to wait for the embassy to do the paperwork.”“Oh.” She drains her beer with gusto – you try to remember how many of the big pitcher's she's downed, and find that you lost count. Shouldn't matter, she's a ship, after all. “Well, I wasn't summoned. Do you remember that battle a few months after the war started, when Akagi was almost sunk?” Akagi had been one of the first Japanese ships summoned – if you can call it that. A young JSDF officer had been praying at a shinto shrine before an expected engagement with abyssals. This included prayers to his grandfather and great-uncle, who had both served – and died – aboard Akagi. The dossier had noted with hilarious dryness how he'd spent five minutes apologizing to “the miko” for not realizing she'd been in attendance when he'd showed up. After a demonstration of her 'abilities' it took *her* ten minutes to lure him out from under the shrine's porch. Her arrival had been the last lighthearted thing about her for a while; the JSDF was small, America had her hands full mobilizing mothballed vessels and moving the surface fleet to a war footing and the 7th fleet was cut off from resupply for eight to twelve weeks when things kicked off. A heavy load had fallen on Akagi, and she'd had some close calls. “There were a few, weren't there?”
Shoukaku nods. “In one of them, she got caught between two Abyssal torpedo bomber squadrons – caught her in a perfect pincer. The first thing I remember...” she shrugs. “Not the first, I mean, I remember the day I was launched, and the day I sank, but... it's confusing. I just felt this flash of terror through my heart, my core – 'it's happening again'. And before I knew it I was launching fighters, trying to build boiler pressure – I didn't want to be hundreds of miles away again, when they needed me there.” “... is it strange?” “Not at first,” Shoukaku replies. “I mean, we know people – we were crewed by them, so of course we know people – and we know what we are, what we were built to do. We don't have to worry about religion or purpose. But after a while, it... it does get strange. I didn't even know what sleep was, at first. When they first gave me a bed, I just bounced around on it for a bit like a little girl – I knew what a berth was, but that was so... so bouncy.” A smile at the memory, but it soon fades. “A lot of the girls – even the ones who arrived early – they haven't really adapted yet. Developed hobbies, or friends.”“Do you have any?”“Friends?”“Hobbies.”“Well,” she says shyly, picking at her shirtsleeve. “I know it sounds terribly airheaded, but I like clothes shopping. It's like being able to repaint yourself any time you want, you know? I go through fashion magazines and try to put together good outfits.” She flushes slightly. “It... sometimes looks silly to other people, but sometimes they like what I make, too.” Something as simple as putting on clothing – a whole new world, for a returned ship spirit. “Shoukaku, mind if I ask you something about work?” “Not at all.”
Might want to update your twitter too.
>>40143496“My boss told me I should pick a secretary ship – to help with the paperwork, and... because I need a bodyguard, apparently.” “Oh,” she says. “After the incident with Kaga-” “Indeed. But...” you shrug. “I know Arizona and Hornet would guard me if I asked, but I don't want them to be stuck with that all day every day. And I'm thinking it might help close the diplomatic gap if I asked a Japanese ship to do the job.” “Well, there's no shortage of candidates,” Shoukaku admits. “But I can tell you this much; the job is largely about mediating between other ships during spats. So you want someone level-headed and fair, or at least good at defusing tense situations.” A shadow flits over her face. “Like that incident with Kaga. I didn't handle that very well. And someone that's comfortable with paperwork and writing e-mails and such, so the more energetic gung-ho types probably wouldn't be a good fit. Honestly, I think Arizona would be good at it, from what I hear.”“True... but if I wanted a Japanese ship?” “No shortage of candidates, like I said, but have you considered Naka?” You raise your eyebrows. “Naka?” “It's very hard to carry on an argument when she starts getting cute,” Shoukaku points out. You recall the way she shut down Hit'Em Again Harder with about five seconds of innuendo and a little leg flashing. “Good point,” you admit. “Does a secretary ship not deploy?” “There's no rule against it, or anything,” Shoukaku says. “We're pretty much making this up as we go along, after all. But it's partially useful for giving a ship who's underemployed something to do so they don't go stir-crazy.” “Speaking of...” you cut your eyes each way dramatically - “who's Goto's secretary ship?” Shoukaku avoids your eyes as she wrings at her napkin nervously. “I'm not supposed to tell...”
I'm just imagining O'Bannon as a red-headed Irish girl that has potato rations hiding around.
>>40143496>Something as simple as putting on clothing – a whole new world, for a returned ship spirit. Well, now we know what to get her for her commissioning day.
>>40143496>And before I knew it I was launching fighters, trying to build boiler pressure – I didn't want to be hundreds of miles away again, when they needed me there.Shame the IJN didn't have that attitude in 1942 huh?
“Goto swore you to secrecy? That monster's covered every angle, hasn't he?” “No no, it really is a secret,” Shoukaku tells you. “Everyone knows her, but nobody's supposed to talk about her.” “Heh,” you reply with amusement. “She launched eighty years ago, guys, we all know you built a really big battleship, you can drop the veil of Asian mysticism now.” Shoukaku blushes slightly and wrings her napkin so hard the paper tears.“.... you have got to be shitting me,” you mutter as cool realization seeps through your bones. Shoukaku shakes her head, biting her lip. “Everyone's worried about the nationalists,” she says sotto-voice. Now you understand why Shoukaku was surprised to hear about Space Battleship Yamato. “Yes, but-”“They don't tell me this, directly,” Shoukaku whispers, “but... you pick it up, after a while. I know people are scared of us.”You open your mouth to object, but she presses a dainty finger to your lips. “That's understandable, it's no surprise. But Japan's an island nation with a tiny navy, and nobody knows if the Chinese are too busy with the Abyssals themselves to worry about us, or if they hope to take advantage while the Americans are occupied.”THAT much you know is true – it's been the talk of USN wardrooms as well for months now. You heard from an Annapolis friend of yours, another Burke skipper, that he was ordered to load nuclear-tipped missiles on his ship not long ago, and not long after rumors had circulated that China had almost attacked Taiwan and only backed down under 'severe threat.'“Japan isn't unstable,” Shoukaku whispers. “Not at all, but there's enough fear – people worry they might take their chances, just like on 2-26. So please keep it secret!” You nod silently, and Shoukaku sits back in her chair, looking relieved. “A-and don't let Goto know I-”“Of course not,” you promise.
Just then, your phone starts buzzing angrily in your pocket. You fish it out to see Hate's number on the screen. “Just a sec, it's the Corporal.”“Of course.”You swipe your thumb across the green phone icon and press it to your ear. “Hello, Hate.”“The hell did you sneak off to?” Hate grumps. “I'm hungry.” “Sorry,” you say, not feeling very sorry. “It looked like you found your meal already, last I saw.” “Har-dee har fucking har,” he grouses. “Seriously, where.” “It's right next to the station,” you tell him. “You can't miss it.”“.... the Gundam cafe?” “Yep.”“... you stupid cockmunching son of a bitch,” he breathes with true horror. “If your powerlevel was any lower you'd need a fucking pacemaker to tock your ticker, you screaming retard. What have you done?”“... what?” You hear the muffled sounds of Hate's phone being manhandled. “Oh fuck, you're already on twitter. Get out of there. Get out of there now, you stupid son of a bitch!” >Fuck that. You're finally having a nice night, and you ain't going anywhere.

STORIES FROM THE FLEET PART FOUR: TOJO'S REVENGE (Or, how I learned to stop worrying and love the curry)I was in a unique position when I was stationed in Japan. One of my uncles has lived there for the better part of forty years. It was actually one of my major motivating factors to get stationed in Sasebo, as he lives about an hour-and-a-half away from the base. I'd regularly visit him and his family on three-day weekends or during leave.I had been at Sasebo for a few weeks, still relatively new the Navy Life (like the Thug Life only slightly less homoerotic), and went to visit my uncle before my ship arrived. My cousin, who was only a few years older than me, spoke perfect Japanese and English, and offered to take me out sightseeing the local area.After a few hours of playing tourist and seeing where my cousin worked, he asked me if I had tried sushi yet. After letting him know that I had not, he took me to one of his favorite sushi-go-rounds. After an hour or so getting to re-know my cousin and enjoying the many delicious varieties of sushi, we headed back to my uncles place, where they had prepared a room for the night for me.That night, only a few hours after going to bed, I awoke to strange sounds. Realizing that my stomach was communicating... something to me, I quietly go up. Suddenly, an EMERGENCY PUMP AND DUMP BLOW BLOW BLOW MAN ALL DC LOCKERS PREPARE FOR MASS CASUALTIESI clenched my stomach, while I tried to fuse my ass cheeks together to keep anything from leaking out with the kinetic force of a 25mm gun. I struggled to my uncle's bathroom in unholy agony, where I promptly realized that the Nation of Japan still secretly remembers World War II. The profane smell that emanated from the toilet after Tojo took his revenge could've been used to clear bunkers.I've tried sushi once more since that time (mid-2004). The results are still the same. Since then, I've espoused the virtues and prestige of Japanese-style curry.

>>40144253Don't even need to whore them out.Just offer them a chance for teatime with Kongou.
Am I the only one disappointed Shokaku did not volunteer herself for our secretary?
>>40144287No, no. Offer them an opportunity for teatime with an officer (noncoms are technically officers) who saw live action and regularly interacts with the shipsluts. And don't tell Hate until five minutes before-hand.
>>40144290>Thinking it'd be that easy
>>40144290She'd rather be our sexretary.
The Hario Radio Tower is a set of three wireless broadcasting towers where the Imperial Japanese navy sent out the signal to attack Pearl Harbor on the 7th of December, 1941, launching America's involvement in the Pacific Front of World War II. It's located in close proximity to the town of Sasebo, and can easily be viewed by ship while entering the harbor. Nowadays, it's considered a cultural landmark for Japan.
>>40144112I'd have to sah that planefag's writing is wholly superior to most of the trash that's printed nowadays, especially the "big hits" that all the kids rant on about. To each their own, of course, quests are not a medium most people can enjoy or understand. And, hey, this random person on the internet is writing a riduculous, "fun" story with/for us, that's a lot further than most other authors would be willing to go.
>>40144290It'd be pretty crass for her to offer herself as our secretary.Don't worry anon, when the time comes we can just choose her.
>>40144345Ever get thrown to Okinawa? Like, Osprey training or something?
>>40144290Slightly, but humility isn't a bad trait. Though the real kicker is that the girls we've seen aren't perfectly fit for the role, maybe save for Naka, but well that'd complicate other things.>>40144112>>40144346He has talent, but he's prone to coasting off of it. That being said, should he actually plan and all that other stuff, what would be made would be amazing.
>>40144345>Cultural landmark for Japan>launched the war where they got demolished like no other warkek
>>40144290I would rather have Shoukaku too, but it'd be awful forward of her to do so. Still gonna vote for her when the time comes though.>>40144403Naka is a pretty good choice but I have too much of a raging waifu bias for Shoukaku to choose anything else.
>>40144431I'm still voting for Naka. She's bro-tier AND one of our only methods of restraining Harder.
>>40144431She is ticking off every item in the /tg/ wife checklist.It is almost as if she is too perfect.
>>40144290Dude, that's reverse psychology she's pulling.

>>40144486So Hate, what's your story?
>>40144486But Hate, you'll look positively radiant in this dress!
>>40144421Hey man, they got to rape and murder A LOT of chinese people before the end of the war.
>>40144503That's nice bro.
>>40144290It's pretty obvious she's the kinda person who assumes fault where there isn't any, so she considers herself unqualified due to her (lack of) involvement in the mess with Kaga.
>>40144485Yes. Due to the only battle they ever won. Which they only won because the enemy was asleep.The military history of Texas is kind of hilariously embarrassing.
>>40144464>Site of a noble last stand of volunteers against the imperial ambitions of General Santana>Texas goes on to win the warlol okay
>>40144486It's this or paperwork, Hate. Choose.
>>40144499I would have liked a more bro ship to be our secretary. Too bad none of the bro ships aren't in the quest.
>>40144499>>40144503Even if we know, it is no defence against her.
>>40144503I can only speak for my own vote, but I have no intention of shipwaifuing.
>>40144535Are you saying Naka isn't a bro ship? Check yourself before you wreck yourself.>>40144538At least we can say "TOLD YOU SO" when morons vote her in. Waifu votes are the worst.
>>40144527>General Santana Yeah, if Texas had been fighting a Pillar Man their rebellion would have gone a lot differently.

>>40144525Considering that the Mexican Army outnumbered them by 3-1 and had significantly more combat experience to boot, I'd call even a single victory pretty impressive.
>>40144387God, I've been to Oki more times than I can care to remember. Our helo pads never took on Ospreys while I was in; we usually went there to pick up Marines and/or the baby amphibs that our ship launched, like LCACs, AAVs, LCMs, or LCUs.Pic related is a view from pierside at White Beach Naval Facility.(All these captchas with sushi. FML)
>>40144566I was thinking more like Hayashimo or Asashimo. Mogami falls just a little short.
>>40144585Everyone's got a story to tell, so what's yours?
>>40144576Wasn't a fan of Babylon V to be honest.
>>40144605You can't seriously think any of those ships are going to appear, do you? Choukai is the most obscure shipslut to show up in this.
>>40144589>(All these captchas with sushi. FML)This time it'll work for sure!
>>40144345Actually, it's only believed that the radio station was the one that sent the attack message. There is no proof that it had any involvement in the Pearl Harbor attack. Still, why is that sign in English? Kind of odd to be on a Japanese cultural landmark.
>>40144587Except that the part of the army that wasn't asleep did not, in fact, outnumber the Texans. And even then, they lucked out by capturing Santa Anna.
>>40144634I thought Kiyoshimo was the most obscure and she already showed up.
>>40144581I don't know about everyone else, but I find the idea of a fucking mute as a secretary hilarious.
“Yeah, no,” you tell him.“... what.” “It's the first nice night I've had in a while and I'm not bailing out because a few slobbering fanboys are waiting outside with hand-lettered signs,” you reply. “It's about time to go home anyways – just meet us at the garage.” “YOU DO-” he manages to get out before you hang up. “Is there trouble?” Shoukaku asks. “Apparently someone recognized you,” you tell her. “No big deal – it's about time to go anyways. I'll settle up and we'll be on our way.” She stands up with you, gripping your arm possessively. “There's no need-”“Let's get out of here quickly,” she says tersely. “Is something wrong?” “Those letters I told you about – I wasn't joking. Entirely. A few guys got the idea to write about wanting to 'take' me just like the Cavalla did. A long stalk and a surprise attack.” “Don't sweat it,” you tell her. “We'll be out of here in no time.”
>>40144664>fucking muteArizona is not for lewds.
>>40144672SHOULDA CALLED THE SPEC OPS, BRO. SHOULDA CALLED THE SPEC OPS.
>>40144672oh god what
>>40144672>I'll settle up and we'll be on our way.”But we're already Settle...
“T-think we could slip out the back?” she asks. She seems to be turning green at the mere prospect of meeting one of the slavering otaku who've been harassing her. “My dear,” you reply, “I've given the shore patrol the slip a few times, but I'll be thrice damned if I'm going to take a lady slinking through an alleyway. We're leaving, and nobody's gonna stop us.”Taking heart in your words, she makes no complaint as you pay the tab and let her escort you out the front door – but the instant you step into the muggy summer twilight, you're blinded by camera flash after camera flash; a semi-circle of people directing camera phones and camcorders at you both. Shoukaku shrinks against you as voices start crying out from the crowd – whether they're applauding or rude, you can't tell. You don the slim sunglasses hiding in your breast pocket; (necessary to see much of anything when the sun's low on the water, having some at all times is a habit.) You just pull Shoukau along gently as you make to part the circle – but they refuse to budge. Which is fine by you – your frame is quite sufficient for a little shoulder-shoving. You wade right in without hesitation, bumping people aside. You hear Shoukaku yelp, and before you can react the sound of an open-handed slap claps through the air; sending one camera-boy spinning on his heel before he collapses, unconscious. You hear a hoarse voice shout something vaugley familiar in Japanese, and your peripheral vision captures two men moving forward as a team, holding between them - - you spring towards them, a shout on your lips, but they upend the bucket over Shoukaku before you can reach them. She shrieks as cold water soaks her to the skin; including her white shirt. She claps her arms over her chest defensively – and the crowd immediately moves in, no longer fearing her blows, cameras already being thrust downward for a shot up her skirt. >Remove otaku. REMOVE OTAKU>“Hate. It's time.”>other?
>>40144672>“Those letters I told you about – I wasn't joking. Entirely. A few guys got the idea to write about wanting to 'take' me just like the Cavalla did. A long stalk and a surprise attack.”Fucking cute.Starting to wonder if we should pack a pistol next time.
>>40144664I don't see the problem.
>>40144655And she didn't even get anything more than a namedrop. Face it, she wasn't really in the quest. Choukai at least got some screen time before she was Sammy'd.
>>40144696We're going to Settle harder.
>>40144672>A few guys got the idea to write about wanting to 'take' me just like the Cavalla did. A long stalk and a surprise attack.Fucking owned.

>>40144642That sign is actually part of a sidewalk display featuring multiple highlights of the Sasebo area. The locals are, surprisingly, proud of both their history and their friendship with the Navy base.I spent a not-insignificant part of my life in the Sasebo area. I miss it a good deal.

>>40144699>>“Hate. It's time.”"Cry 'Havoc!', and let slip the dogs of war!"Always wanted to use that line.
>>40144869Navyfag, do you got any more stories to tell?

Votes pretty overwhelmingly called.
>>40144921It said akagi was one of the first, not the first.

>>40144940Ah, and here I was about to vote within the same trend.Poor dear. We must defend her honour.
>>40144937Because Settle doesn't have a sidearm. What do you think he is, a pilot?
>>40144399>That being said, should he actually plan
>>40144699I propose that next time such a situation may occur, we have Sammy in the near vicinity. Heaven and hell have mercy on those poor bastards, because she sure won't.
>>40144937Because we don't have one
>>40144966>Officer>No sidearm>No sword
>>40144937Is Settle even strapped? I don't remember there ever being any mention of him carrying a service sidearm.
>>40144960Well it was a surprise, and she's not made (completely) out of metal any more, having cold water suddenly dumped on you would be a pretty rude surprise.
>>40143496>build boiler pressure How lewd.
>pictures of Settle and Shoukaku circulate the net >Everyone assumes they're a couple and it's a huge PR hit>Settle has to take responsibility >Settle has to make Shoukaku his secretary >Overtime, they slowly become more comfortable with each other and form a relationshipThis is getting WAY too lewd.>>40144939>OOC knowledge>Not voting in character
>>40144939Settle doesn't exactly have the powerlevel of the average /tg/er. Or something worse than an average /tg/er considering how few of us know what Akibawhatsits is like.
So remind again why Settle doesn't carry a sidearm. Because this is another one of those /tg/ decision making times.
>>40144986>>40144985He was out for an evening with a lady. Of course he wasn't armed.
>>40144987Yeah but the bottom of the Pacific has got to be a lot colder than that stuff.
>>40144996>in characterEvery time I see this in quests, it's solely so that people can vote for retarded decisions. You're not trying to be "in character", you're just trying to tank the quest for your own amusement.
>>40144937Settle doesn't have one. Probably specifically to take this option off the table.
>>40144939>Assuming people know what Akihabara is like
>>40144986Why the fuck would we *not*? Are we not a good, freedom-loving red-blooded American?
>>40145006HANDS HOLDING HANDS ARE AS BAD AS HANDS IN POCKETS BUT LEWDER
>>40145004It's like unloading a gun when it's being transported. Retard prevention, essentially.
>>40145028Presumably she was pretty dead before she got anywhere near the bottom.
>>40145038We're in "no handguns allowed" Japan.
>>40144967Planefag, get out from under that golfcart this instant!
>>40145006>Not being equipped to defend said lady from ne'er-do-wellsUnbecoming of an officer or a gentleman.
>>40144986Settle's got his cutlass or saber or whatever the fuck it is Navy officers get. Now go Google "sword wounds."Lose your lunch. While I don't think laying about with our sword in a crowded Japanese shopping district is the best of ideas, I also think that defending the honor of one of our charges, a lady, and a warship, to boot, is the best of ideas.Therefore, we hit them with our sword.
>>40144906I've got plenty of stories to tell. Some of them might even be truthful.I was stationed on the USS Fort McHenry (LSD-43) and the USS Tortuga (LSD-46), both out of Sasebo, Japan. I've been to Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Hong Kong, STRAYA, and the Philippines; as well as port calls to Okinawa, Yokosuka, and Tokyo. I was a Crypto Tech, and had numerous secondary duties, including the ships' security team, gun crews, DC teams, and flight deck crew. I've gotten shitfaced in exotic locales, and marveled at the stars on a cloudless, moonless night at sea. What do you want to hear about?
>>40144996>PR hitMore like PR disaster. A shipslut and a human--as a couple, no less! There would be so much goddamn controversy that the talking heads at all the large news networks would be debating the concept for weeks, and the public radio stations for months more.
>>40145035It’s full of adventurers and shit, right? Or did Log Horizon lie to me?
While we wait there is something I've been curious about. How much did you guys learn about WW1 and WW2 in school?For me the curriculum I went through was basic. It talked about events in very broad terms, we went over there fought these battles and came home as heroes much patriotism something something remembrance day. Looking back it seems so empty because all it taught me was that these events happened and almost nothing about how and why they happened. Back when I was in school wikipedia didn't exist and after it launched it still took years to become useful with decent cited information. The wiki notability nazis certainly didn't help. The public library catalog system at the time still ran on DOS, and unless you were willing to pay sticker price it was almost impossible to find a history book less than 20 years old.So up until planefag did SWQ I never had much drive to do research on my own. Some of the things I've learned since then have kind of blown my mind. Was it the same for you guys?
God damn it I look away to play robocraft for awhile and THIS is what I come back to?
Can't believe all these people are wondering why settle isn't armed.A) its Japan, not even the beat cops have guns.B) Flag rank and up Dont carry. Especially when they are nominally off duty.
>>40145074>guns>japana y y y l a m o
>>40145095Seeing as how even about ten years ago I was the one correcting my teacher on WWII, yeah it was. Luckily he was a cool dude and just out of college so he didn't try to correct me back.
>>40145095I actually learned more about Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union as societies than the actual war itself. Admittedly it was because of a elective, but still.
>>40145064She died ugly. Four torpedo hits in quick succession. 4/5 of her crew (both sailors and airmen) died with her. I linked a description of her final hours in an earlier thread.
>>40145079Any neat stories coming from Thailand, Singapore, or the Philippines?And as part of the base security team, did you mainly have to deal with drilling for disasters or were you also called in to break up fights while on board?
>>40145095>Was it the same for you guys?Man FUCK no.I read the shit out of every WWII book I could get my hands on because the tanks and guns and planes looked so damn sweet.
>tfw yelling while firing a gun wildly into the air is a valid option but we can't even do it now
>>40145155You been through Tigers in the Mud?
>>40145095I got an extremely basic framework of what caused each war, who won each war, and how they led to the next war. Meanwhile, my father is and was a WWII milhist nut so I went into those sections of the classes better informed than anybody sans the teacher and left with nothing new, aside from a lot of irritation since the teacher wouldn't let me give details.
>>40145133>Japan not letting US service officers carry their duty guns>being no gunslol Japan>>40145116>Not letting your cops have guns>Flag rank and up don't carryPatton says you're wrongalso>not always carrying
>>40145095Pearl Harbor, the Battle of the Bulge, Russia getting backstabbed by Germany, and the atomic bombs--pretty much the broad strokes. It was only really in high school and afterwards that I started to delve into specific aspects of the war.
>>40145079Before you were talking about sharing some more spoopy scary stories, how about more in that vein?Oh, and where's the best place to watch the stars in your travels?
>>40145038Japan's firearms laws are not American firearms laws.Besides, we have a corgi. Why carry pistols when you can have an automatic artillery piece?
>>40145064http://www.combinedfleet.com/shoksink.htmYeah. She was.
>>40145185>carrying duty guns OFF DUTYA Y Y L A M OT HISGUY
>>40145169>tfw Carius passed on earlier this year but I didn't even get a chance to visit him at his pharmacy
>>40145169Nah. Is it any good? I read Patton's Panther's, which was pretty great though.Pic relates is GOAT WWII literature, by the way.
>>40145095More like, most history classes, even AP US History, stopped just before WW2. Most of the focus was from 1776-1930 + Depression and recovery, and if there was time left in the semester, WW2 and the Cold War.Everything I've learned was from watered down sections of highschool textbooks and various parts of history textbooks from the first few semesters of college (Top 10 university).Even then it's still very sparse and far below the level of many of the readers here.
>>40145095I learnt it because it is my history. Perhaps more than most Americans.Since I'm a Belgian-born Canadian and both of my grand-parents on my mother's side lived under the Occupation.And I knew my Great-Grand-Mother, who lived under BOTH Occupations and lost two brothers and an uncle during the Great War.I had both the motivation and the sources to learn of the Wars, directly.
>>40144934Getting qualified to shoot them is piss-easy. Aim at target (usually a floating target), pull the trigger, contain your erection.Getting assigned to crew one is entirely different. That requires be a 'part' of the Armory: volunteering to help the Gunner's Mates even when it's shit work, be a part of rifle/pistol/shotgun qualifications, knowing the Secret Handshake, and most of all not being a complete spaz around them.I was actually GIVEN the keys to ammo lockers because I was considered an asset to the ships' Armory.
>>40145213fuck me>>40145211Are you actually capable of not shitposting?
>>40145212https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sydney_Valpy_Radley-Walters Don't forget this guy
>>40145213Oh it's fantastic. Otto Carius gives an excellent review of the eastern front from a german perspective, and it really is quite eye opening. The descriptions and details on the Tiger itself are incredibly good as well.
>>40145230He isn't. It's literally what he does. Never takes off his trip either.
>>40145218Read "Inferno" by Max Hastings. It’s a pretty good one-volume history of the war. Look up more specific stuff after that.
>>40145185>Patton Was a fucking nutcase in the middle of a fucking warzone. Settle is off duty on a date. I don't carry my piece when I'm out in public with the wife.
>>40145095Eh, let me put it this way. In high school when our history teacher eventually brought up WWII, half the class had no clue. One person even asked who won. I snapped.
>>40145230Maybe I wouldn't have to shitpost so hard if there weren't so many wrong people.
>>40145230Crix is /v/ incarnatealso the reason i left #swq
>>40145260>he doens't carry everywhere he goeslaughing tinhats.gif
>>40145227There's a secret handshake? Is it, like, a literal secret handshake or just some bits and pieces of info only known to those in the know?
>>40145260>Was a fucking nutcase in the middle of a fucking warzone.He was a goddamn hero and a genius.His EDC kit is fucking impressive too.
>>40145265how the fuck does your country even function
>>40145260>don't carry your piece out in public on a date with your wifeJesus, namefag, I bet you don't keep a knife under your pillow and a spare handgun in your refrigerator, either.>>40145275or you could try not being a cancerous cunt
>>40145285no one misses you
>>40145285I don't know who you are but you were probably a huge tool anyway, mission accomplished.
>>40145253I like how a lot of people went to his place after the war and posed with him while holding the Tamiya Carius Tiger model.
>>40145304True, but he still was kinda loony. There's often very little difference between genius and insanity.
>>40145308Its not under the pillow but its within arms reach. And no I only have the one handgun, it sleeps right next to my head.
>>40145095Quite bit actually, but I guess that just comes with living in the same city as the national WW2 museum
>>40145265Jesus.For me it was " DUH ATOMIC BOMBS WERE A WARCRIME 'MERICA IS EVIL" shit really got on my nerves.
>>40145333Results. That's the only difference.You're insane if what you do ends up blowing up in your face.You're a genius who's a tad touched when it all goes (mostly) according to plan.
>>40145307If it helps over half of my graduating class is already dead or in prison.
>>40145307Well you can't just drive to an old WWII battlefield or fort in the USA, can you? The closest I ever got was camping in Fort Flagler with the Boy Scouts, but those were WWI forts and they didn't do anything but look cool.It just wasn't as impactful in the US, nobody really bled and died on our soil.
>>40145285>Not just putting him on ignoreChrist stop being a man baby.
>>40145307I dunno but if you figure it out let us know.
>>40145367>that just comes with living in the same city as the national WW2 museumFlagstaff?
>>40145147I'll work on a Thailand story before getting to the spoopy as requested by >>40145189To answer the respective questions:I wasn't part of the BASE security team; just the ship's team. The various divisions and departments were always pretty good about handling any 'problems' in-house, so to speak. Pretty much just did drills unless something random happened, like the fucking engineering department not telling everyone there's going to be a scheduled power loss right after evening duty muster, those fucks.And the best place to stargaze at sea is pretty much any weatherdeck that's completely uncovered. That shit really makes you marvel at the universe. You can actually see the body of the Milky Way some nights.
>>40145380>BSA Oh man we got permission to get into so many places. Fort Bragg in VA was the biggest one, but the Massachusetts always loved us and gave troops priority for overnight stays on the ship.
>>40145095Mine didn't go into detail, just hitting the high points. So basically Battle of Britain, Pearl Harbor, D-Day, Holocaust, end of war, onto civil rights.
>>40145079stories from straya?
We had a high school group come on the Hornet one day, and a girl actually asked that when she heard the ship fought in World War 2. "Who won?"The response was "What language are you speaking now?"
>>40145285The fact that you went to #SWQ in the first place means you are a horrible person and your opinion doesn't matter.planefag is only excused because he writes quests I like. Everyone else from there has proven time and time again how awful they are.
>>40145414>Seeing the milky wayParuparuparu...That's youkai-speak for jealous
>>40145301... Yes...(Much like getting Shellback'd, there's only so much I can tell without losing my privileges.)
>>40145432but if the english won the war how come we don't have pictures of the queen on our dollar bills?
>>40145419Bragg is in NC.
>>40145475That's cause we speak American, fuck the queens english.
>>40145475If someone is stupid enough to as "Who won WW2", they probably would think that they are speaking American.
>>40145428FIIIIIIIIINE. First Thailand, then a spoopy, and then STRAYA.>>40145456It was one of the few perks to the high op-tempo my ship had.
>>40145322Goddamn, I wish I was able to go meet him. I first started reading about him a few weeks before he died, and was overjoyed when I found out he was still living. Then he died, and I was crushed.One of the biggest things that hit me was the type of guy he was. An interiew where you can clearly see is on tankarchives blog but 4chan won't let me post the link.
>>40145503Well, they wouldn't really be wrong if they said that America won WWII.
So why ARE we letting Hate handle this instead of using our cane to start beating otaku left and right, smashing their expensive cameras on the ground and into their faces, grinding sharp glass and plastic into their flesh with the heel of our shoes, and stomping on their throats and eyes, to give them all a tiny bit of IJA brutality in return for the welcome they gave Shoukaku?
>>40145476Which ever one is in VA, because it's been a long time since we were there. However much I loved the guns and everything, I never was much into military stuff.
>>40145535Because it's motherfuckin' Hate. He's much more creative at dealing out pain than we are.
>>40145516I like how he really wasn't bitter about the whole war thing and spent the rest of his life helping people out at his pharmacy. Really jolly guy, I hear.
>>40145477And you're all so toxic that, rather than assuming it's just some random faggot, you immediately go and pick someone out from your circlejerk to blame. A quest IRC is the worst decision a QM can make. And yet, even amongst this infamous group, #SWQ stands out as the worst. You are all leeches, feeding off planefag's charisma and talent to try and give your lives meaning. No one would miss you.
>>40145535Because that's conduct unbecoming, and assault on a foreign civilian, which would get us arrested, thrown in jail, relieved of command, and dishonorably discharged before being sent back to jail.
>>40145535His name is straight up HATE. That should tell you all you need to know.
>>40145535Because we are an officer and therefore have subordinates to delegate those tasks to.
>>40145535Probably because a gimp leg and a large crowd is a good recipe for disaster
>>40145561My god, I can smell the butthurt straight through the Internet.
>>40145535That and it's not 1v1, but 1vsMany, and Hate and his Derp of War can do that better.>>40145574That too.
>>40145534Well, no, they wouldn't be wrong, but I was focusing on someone thinking that American is a language moreso than any partially correct answer.
>>40145535Because Hate has a corgi and it's attendant "Four Ma Deuces, a Bofors, a thirty-seven mikemike, and anything else they could strap to them".
>>40145561The fact that you are *this* butthurt about it justifies its existence.
>>40145322>>40145516Here's a excerpt from when he was asked "What makes a good officer?": Humility, and concern for his soldiers. Lead by example! Conscience and loyalty. Self-assuredness, but also humility. Do more, advertise little. Be bigger than you claim. I think that is very important for an officer.
>>40145567Whereas that's standard procedure for a marine
>>40145561You'd have a point if planefag had made the channel. He didn't.
Having made your career as a warship captain, you're very familiar with group psychology and chain-of-command. No sooner has the two-man attack registered in your brain than you're scanning the crowd for the asshole with the hoarse voice, the one who gave the order – the ringleader. You spot him immediately; the only unwashed neckbeard son-of-a-bitch with two or three guys hanging near him, watching him more than Shoukaku. Now you just need to reach him, and fortunately, you have a brand-new cane. You slam it into the first obstruction's instep, sending him pitching over with a yowl. The second and third catch a poke to the solar plexus, dropping them to the asphalt gasping for breath. You leap over them before your target can fully register what's happening. He turns to run at the last second, but you catch him from behind, clamping your cane over his throat and squeezing it. You spin him around to face the crowd, and with a voice honed by years of dealing with the bright, luminous minds of the Navy's finest, call the crowd's attention.
>>40145567Not to mention an international incident. A US admiral beating up Japanese nerds with a plethora of Ultra-HD cameras cataloguing the violence? Liberal media would eat that shit up--and that's not even mentioning the SJW's hearing about how a privileged white American officer was beating down sweaty, pale nerds.
>>40145608Hoping for smoke rockets
>>40145586Well, most IRCs are massive circlejerks.I've never touched #SWQ, but he's probably winning that particular argument.
“STOW THAT SHIT, SAILORS.” Your voice thunders through the air and echoes down the concrete canyon of the street. It might not have flown in America, but Japan is a culture used to authority, and all eyes turn to see if you've got a uniform on. In that brief moment of respite Shoukaku dives back into the restaurant, safe. Your captive squirms uncomfortably under the hard wood clamped against his windpipe, but you just squeeze it a little tighter and snarl into his ear. “Not so fast, roundboy. We're gonna have a chat.” The crowd is starting to glare dirks and daggers at you as a few others try to enter the cafe – which has already been hastily locked. Mutterings and maledictions are beginning to fly – a few in broken English.“YANKEE!” “YOU TOUCH WAIFU!?” “MARINE RAPIST!” “PIG!” You grit your teeth and prepare your reply. “Y'all gonna make me lose my mind, lose my mind, up in heah, up in heah. Y'all gonna make me go all out, up in heah, up in heah-”You hook your elbow over one end of the cane so you can reach your pocket and press the right button on your ringing phone through the pocket. “Hate? You're on speakerphone.”
“Skipper, is Shoukaku out of there? Can't see from here.”“She's inside and the doors are locked.”“Good.” The crowd is starting to move towards you angrily; some filming and some picking up their packpacks like they plan to swing them at you. You feel an old, old anger rising in you, that mad fuck-everything fire of a much younger man about to jump feet-first into a shoreside bar brawl to defend a shipmate. Shoukau's had her night ruined, once again it's your fault, and now the culprits are giving you every excuse to crack their skulls. “Uh, you think you can handle them with just that cane, Skipper?” Roundboy sure thinks so, judging from the wheezing he's making. There might be a lot of them – but they're Asian otakus; the smell might be the most dangerous thing about them.And you're right pissed off. >Did the abyssals put shrapnel through our balls as well as our thigh? Of course you can handle a bunch of fucking otaku. Shoukaku's safe now – what the fuck are you worried about? >Best not to take chances – this has gotten far enough out of hand, and you've made enough mistakes. If he's got a weapon or something, you need it.
>>40145632>and that's not even mentioning the SJW's hearing about how a privileged white American officer was beating down sweaty, pale nerds.SJW's hate nerds, man. Where you been?
>>40145628Does he show up in the channel? Does he talk in the channel?Then it's his. Not creating it doesn't matter when he chooses to legitimize it anyway.

>>40145683>>Best not to take chances – this has gotten far enough out of hand, and you've made enough mistakes. If he's got a weapon or something, you need it.Time to bring on the pain.And we really need to apologise for this clusterfuck later, really should've listened to her and Hate.
>>40145683>"Just watch my back, I got this."We can probably handle this just have Hate watch our back
>>40145756>And we really need to apologise for this clusterfuck later, really should've listened to her and Hate.A good officer listens to his NCOs.
So is that Settle's ringtone for Hate, or just anybody calling him? Because frankly either of those options is hilarious for different reasons.
>>40145683>Did the abyssals put shrapnel through our balls as well as our thigh? Of course you can handle a bunch of fucking otaku. Shoukaku's safe now – what the fuck are you worried about?
Someone finally typeset the sequel to Memories of the Sea:http://g.e-hentai.org/g/817694/095308a85c/
>>40145695gee could you be the guy that got banned from #swq last night? Hmm I wonder
>>40145744Agreed. We should buy a crate of tennis balls and just let them have at it--I'm sure there's a big enough field on base to let them all run around recklessly.
>>40145683>Best not to take chances – this has gotten far enough out of hand, and you've made enough mistakes. If he's got a weapon or something, you need it.Don't let a single one of them escape.Wait, since Shoukaku is not just an officer in the JMSDF, but also one of their warships, wouldn't this constitute defending military property from a group of demonstrators?Japanese society generally sides with authority versus protesters/demonstrators. Doubly so if the demonstrators are the unwashed societal rejects and undesirables.
>>40145683>Did the abyssals put shrapnel through our balls as well as our thigh? Of course you can handle a bunch of fucking otaku. Shoukaku's safe now – what the fuck are you worried about? CRY HAVOC, AND LET SLIP THE CORGIS OF WAR!
>>40145779>So is that Settle's ringtone for HateYes.
>>40145683Enough is enough, time to reign in the stupid>Best not to take chances – this has gotten far enough out of hand, and you've made enough mistakes. If he's got a weapon or something, you need it.
>>40145683>>Best not to take chances – this has gotten far enough out of hand, and you've made enough mistakes. If he's got a weapon or something, you need it.That and I really want to see Hate in action.
>>40145683>Best not to take chances – this has gotten far enough out of hand, and you've made enough mistakes. If he's got a weapon or something, you need it.We're going to have to make it up to him, failing to heed yet another warning from Hate
>>40145632We're at War Son, if the media doesn't like it and if the SJW don't like it they can come to Japan themselves and say so.By boat... with no escort.
>>40145832Ooh, who be the might seamen demon in the background?
>>40145804I'm not. I've never been in #SWQ. Doesn't mean I don't know what goes on in there.
Something funny: Shokaku is one of just a handful of Japanese shipgirls that doesn't have to worry about meeting her killer. Cavalla is a museum ship.
>>40145851The Japanese media wouldn't like it either, which puts political and legal pressure on us from both ends of the alliance.
>>40145802So that's why Naka acts like an idol.
>>40145872you should come in and sit a spell. we can talk waifus and compare dicks and other things irc channels do
>>40145872So you're either parroting stuff you've heard from others or you're lying. Great basis there buddy.
>>40145691They hate everythign even themselves. But in their mind it probably goes like thisOtaku/themselves = Big HeroSailor = Rapist/woman hating shit lord.Shoukaku= Damsel.You do the math.
>everyone thinks the second vote is for Hate intervention That was already confirmed by the prior vote but this is basically a double confirmation, which means - oh yeah. buckle up
>>40145802...aw fuck I knew I shouldn't've procrastinated the last two days...On the other hand it kinda sucks so I guess I'll keep going.
>>40145872>I've never been in #SWQ.>Doesn't mean I don't know what goes on in there.
>>40145745Throwing more support behind this.FUN FOR EVERYONE
>>40145887The Japanese media is going to be saying whatever the government tells them to say, or at least the mass media will be.
>>40145907Well. Shit. Is it a vote for Hate intervention?
>>40145901I don't need to do any of that. Everyone from the IRC shows up here, after all, and they're all horrible.
Shit everything is going up in flames. We're really going to need that Willie D idol PR stunt now.
>>40145887>The Japanese media wouldn't like it eitherIt's a bunch of social rejects, the dregs of society, those that create "meiwaku" for everyone around them, getting their just desserts for assaulting a well-liked celebrity figure, and at the same time rocking the boat with the Americans when Japan REALLY needs that mutual defense treaty.I don't think the media response in Japan will be favorable to the otaku.
>>40144939I didn't vote in that one but looking back it's hard to tell which option actually won. It went something like:1. NO SHITS GIVEN FUCK DA PAPARAZZI2. Check please3. Evasive action!Predictably people voted for 1. Probably because they were expecting something awesome to happen like ordering desert and then pulling a fighting retreat out the back door as the otaku horde overwhelms the outer defenses. But what we actually got was a mix of 1 and 2. We got up and stated that we wouldn't let some nerds ruin our night... then paid the check and walked out the front door despite all advice to the contrary. So what actually happened with the vote there? Did 2 win? Did 1 win and 2 happened anyway?Anyhow it looks like we're about to put the fear of Corgi into some subhuman scum, so it's all good. Pic related?
>>40145872please please please come to #swq
>>40145887If anything I'd just love to see the conflicting sides of how CNN and Fox would spin the event.
>>40145938No, we're gonna need Naka-chan's STAR POWER
>>40145936So you're a parrot with a chip on his shoulder. Less than half a dozen of the people in the #SWQ come here and post with names regularly, there's many more in it. So clearly everyone is a shit.
>>40145872Pixelfag is a SWQ regular bruh.So you're saying he's horrible too?>>40145954You just reminded me of cyber idols quest
>>40145943I thought that 2 won. Then again planefag seems to have trained his audience to go PILOT way too often than needed.Amazingly enough they never learn from all the times it's blown up on them.
>>40145953>FOX>Degenerates Assault Military Personnel in Tokyo>CNN>MH370 Search Area Expanded to Encompass Entire Globe
>>40145983Still wouldn't mind a one-shot of Cyberpunk Shinobi Niko
>>40145997Sorry CNN. That plane is an alium now.
>>40145953Here, this image explains it rather well.Operation: MAKAI FREEDOM gets me everytime.
>>40145967It's not like it's hard to identify the anons who are from the IRC as well. You're probably not even from the IRC.>>40145983Art doesn't make you a good person. See; Halley.
>>40145983>So you're saying he's horrible too?He posts on 4chan.What do you expect.
>>40145994>Amazingly enough they never learn from all the times it's blown up on them.We've been giving it a hell of a try in this quest>>40145997>MH370 Search Area Expanded to Encompass Entire Globe
>>40145902And I'm telling you, they HATE nerds. Like, "We must find a Final Solution to the Nerdy Question" hate. There is of course an aversion to be seen engaging in cultural imperialism, but all this means is that the worst we can expect from that particular audience is silence.
>>40146018Kek, good point.>>40146003>Niko will never be relevant in any other merc quest>sad.gif>>40146014Where's Cirno News Network interpretation tho
>>40145872> never been to the irc> never met or talked to anyone there> assumes everyone is the sameit's bigoted generalising cunts like you that are the literal ruin of the world. how about instead of declaring yourself the Ultracunt of I Know Everything About Everyone And I Can Say If You're A Cunt Or Not you take a moment to have a bit of fucking empathy for once and THINK and LEARN before you ASSUME. It's the same as that cuntfuck racist from last thread who wants to lump Non-Americans into some group of Great Evil despite not personally knowing a single foreigner.
>>40146034To be fair it is perfectly acceptable to hate nerds.
If planefag were a ship slut, what kind of ship would he be?
>>40146016So you can identify the ones who're from IRC without having been there?Great, can you predict the lottery for me?
>>40146048Dude, do you not know where you are right now?
>>40146044It's not like being an American or black or whatever. You can choose to enter the IRC, and choose to leave it just as easily.
>>40146044So he's not-IRC Ridire?
>>40146055>planefag>turn him into a shipGee, I fucking wonder.
>>40146055a fat as fuck container ship/LNG carrier.
>>40146078you never truly leave the irc
>>40146055We told you, he'd be an Onassis Lines ship.As it turns out, they do oil tankers primarily.
>>40146071Yes and that makes it especially acceptable to hate nerds.
>>40146071Nerds hate themselves/each other almost more than anyone else does
>>40146087A PBY Catalina?
>>40146055Hughes H-4 Hercules
>>40146055You know the oil tanker from Waterworld?That.Who the fuck here would ever bother to see Waterworld
>>40146092I'm sure there are dozens of people who joined, saw a single conversation and immediately left, never to return.
>>40146071We share a site with /tv/ and /pol/. There's no hate like self-hate, because we know just how low we can go.
>>40146114"Way of the future. Way of the future. Way of the future..."
>>40146119Yeah, but Psyentific did come back, it was hilariousMaul hasn't tho
>>40146138Ah yes, using a website that a fuckstick uses makes you a fuckstick, I forgot that /pol/tards were lycanthropes
>>40146106>>40146111>>40146112Sure, why not.He can be all of them.And a plane.At the same time.
>>40146156I thought the Great Furfag Purge of yesteryear dealt with the werewolf problem.
>>40146096>>40146109>>40146138Alright, can't argue with that.
>>40146055Planefag would be one of these.
>>40146156No, but sharing a home with a fuckstick does give you pretty unique insight to why people hate that fuckstick.
You scan the crowd of sputtering otaku, pissed to the boiling point at the filthy gaijin who dared desecrate their waifu and interrupted their 'fun.' It's taken them this long just to take a step closer to you, and even now they're flinching away from your cold gaze. You're angry enough to smash skulls, and it clearly shows. Of course you can handle them...… but all tomorrow morning's news will show is not a gentleman defending Shoukaku, but an American naval officer beating the shit out of otaku with a cane. And even if you have Hate pass you a gun – or flash his own – that'll just make things even worse. You can cow them, perhaps. Perhaps. But Hate? Hate is in a leauge of his own.“Corporal?” “Yeah?” “I was wrong.”“No fucking shit you shlongobbling fuckburger.”“Excuse me?”“Shlonggobbling fuckburer SIR.” “Better. I just wanted to say, I'm sorry, and I owe you an apology.” “Save it for later, I think they're finally getting brave. I'm gonna send fuzzy in; when you hear me shout-” “No, Hate.” “Skipper-”“No dog. No gun. No.” “Then what-”“I owe you, Hate.”
>>40146179SA did the glorious furfag purge thing, and look at where they are now.
“....”“You earned this, Hate.” “Skipper.” Hate's voice is low and rough. “Are you-”“Oooooohhh yes,” you growl in return. The crowd is hesitating, listening to the conversation. “Oh,” Hate says, his voice husky with lust. “Oh, god yes. Put fatass on the phone, there.” You loosen up on the cane just enough for fatass to rasp a few pleas to his compatriots before Hate's voice comes roaring through the phone: “ZERO EXCLAMATION POINT ZEBRA ALPHA SEVEN FIVE FOH-WAR CHARLIE X-RAY MIKE TREE NINER ZULU.”For some reason, the entire crowd freezes. Widebody is the worst effected – you feel him go utterly rigid. “TRIPCODE OF LARD-ASS MCFATFUCK THE FIRST, CURRENTLY BEING CHOKED LIKE A BITCH BY THE SKIPPER.” Big boy is in mortal terror now, his breath coming in quick little gasps. “W-who this?” “I TOLD YOU I'D FIND YOU.” Your captive emits a high-pitched squeal of terror and tries to flail free, but you just rein him back in by the windpipe. “NO! NO! LIE! BOOSHIETU!” “CONFIRMED KILL THREE HUNDRED AND TWENTY. THAT'S YOU.” “LIE! HAHA!” Large Load snaps. “Three hundred! Three hundred! Fuk u!” And that's when Hate steps up behind one of the staring otaku in the crowd, claps his hands on his shoulders, and says conversationally, “hello, kill three-hundred and one.”
>>40146212Why, because it's got enough huge balls for two motherfuckers, and it moves slow as fuck?
>>40146241>“TRIPCODE OF LARD-ASS MCFATFUCK THE FIRST, CURRENTLY BEING CHOKED LIKE A BITCH BY THE SKIPPER.”>TRIPCODEOh god what
>>40146102I left my trip on, boo fucking hoo.>>40146078You can choose to like whatever you want, vote for whatever fucking political party you feel like, and decide not to go to an IRC if you so wish, but when you start going "stop liking what I don't like" "everyone is a shitter for liking the thing I don't like" is when I'm going to call you a fucking cunt. And not the good kind of cunt.
>>40146222I thought you didn't go to #swq though

You couldn't have done better if you'd hurled a live grenade in their midst. Quite literally, because grenades do not chase people while laughing like a fucking lunatic. “WHERE'S YOUR REACTION IMAGES NOW, LARDBUCKET? WHERE'S YOUR FUCKING REACTION IMAGES NOW?”You stroll casually through the detritus of discarded backpacks and dropped cameras, and begin selectively demolishing every recording device you can find with the stout, metal-capped end of your new cane. “LETS SEE YOU SHITPOST WITH BROKEN FINGERS, MOTHERFUCKER!” A keening scream of girlish terror rises through the twilight and chokes off somewhere in the upper octaves, a nice counterpoint to the crunch-crunch-crunch of smartphone demolition. “AAAAAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO~” Hate's exultations have become outright feral. You kick one last camcorder hard enough to smash it into splintereens against the curb, and knock politely on the door to the cafe. The desk girl lets you in.“You are Admiral, yes?”“Admiral Settle, indeed.” “Ah!” she smiles. “Your girlfriend is fine. We gave her dry clothes.” She peers warily over your shoulder. “What... was...” You turn and look over your shoulder just in time to see an overweight otaku running like a mad bastard, arms flailing spastically as he's pursued by a delivery bike with a happy-looking muffin emblazoned on the back. “I think the Japanese word for it is youkai.”

>>40145227>>40144869Hey Navyfag what do you guys do with all the spent brass from the deck guns? It looks like it just pools all over the deck or is immediately ejected overboard depending on the position of the gun.Does it ever get used or recycled? What about the belt links?
>>40146510The pretty cashier blanches. “Oh... okay. Shou is back here, please come?” You nod politely and allow her to show you into the back room, which looks like a staff break room. From somwhere behind the vending machine, Shoukaku speaks up.“Uh... stop.”“All stop, aye aye.” You wait.“... Shoukaku?”“Don't look.”“You're dressed, right?”“... technically.” You sigh and roll your eyes. “Shoukaku, if they dressed you in a bathing suit or some dumb shit just tell me and I'll go back there and break my cane off in their asses. I've had enough of this cartoon bullshit for ten lifetimes already-”Shoukaku finally steps out from behind the vending machine, and your brain overrevs with a smoking scream louder than a shaft shorn of its props.

>>40146619Is it that hard to say get fucked?
>>40146616If you thought the feddie dresses were bad, just think of the AEUG uniform that Fa wore.
>>4014661610 internets says that it's also a few sizes small on her.
>>40146569Depends. They usually kick it overboard unless the deck-peckers get to it first. Good souvenirs. I've got a 25mm casing in my liquor cabinet.

It would be so much better if Shokaku was wearing Izana's pilot suit.

>>40146657I don't think not yet, though we might have scored and lost some favor with Shoukaku.

She's wearing one of the staff's sci-fi uniforms – it seems similar to a tight red leotard that hugs the curve of her waist and accentuates her bust. Her 'skirt' is a thin, transparent gauze materiel that accentuates her bare hips and firm, pale thighs wonderfully; like pantyhose, but better; her every movement making the gauze shift enticingly over her skin. She's retained her black leggings, which end just under the 'skirt,' and as she catches you staring from the corner of her eye she tugs them a little higher with hands clad in elbow-length gloves. This does not help one god damned bit. “The fuck is this?”“It's all we had that fit her,” the cashier says from the doorway behind you. “Her hips are a little too wide for anything that, uh, covers the hips.”“She can keep it!” her co-worker adds, and they both slink away with stifled giggles. “I can't go out in this,” Shoukaku says grimly. >Why not? Everyone will take you for a cosplayer – it's perfect!>Would you like me to dress up for moral support?>I'll call the base and have them send a ride over; they can come right to the door.

>>40146910Little late there, sport.
STORIES FROM THE FLEET PART FIVE: THAILAND BLUESThailand is, to me, Adult Disneyworld. There's just so much fun shit to do there in the touristy areas. Drinking, shooting fully automatic weapons from former Warsaw Pact nations, drinking, cheap well-made tailored suits, drinking, bootleg movies and games, drinking, massagie girls, drinking, and ping-pong shows.This is not one of those stories, as on the night in particular I'll be telling you all about, I had a raging headache that wasn't alcohol-induced. Surprise.We had been in port for two days, of a seven-day, duty-section-only, liberty port call. For some unexplainable reason, I had woken up that morning with a skull-splitting headache. I wanted to do nothing more than stay in my bunk and keep the jackhammering of my skull down. Two of my divisional buddies, fellow spooks of the crypto world, Petty Officers H and F, had decided otherwise for me. H and F wanted me to Go Out and Have Fun.Those two dragged me all over the port we were in (I literally cannot recall if it was Pattaya or Phuket). We went to several bootleg vendors, a suit store for those two chucklefucks, and had an early dinner at a (very loud) fancy restaurant just on the edge of town. Afterwards, H and F insisted on dragging me down to the beachfront strip of bars and clubs for drinking.(1 of 2)
>>40146848>>Would you like me to dress up for moral support?>>I'll call the base and have them send a ride over; they can come right to the door.Fuck it, why not.
>>40146848>I'll call the base and have them send a ride over; they can come right to the door.Also use our jacket too.
>>40146848>Would you like me to dress up for moral support?>I'll call the base and have them send a ride over; they can come right to the door.Us doing something dumb is the perfect way to brighten up her day again.
>>40146848>I'll call the base, they’ll send us a ride>Would you like me to dress up for moral support MOST IMPORTANTLY>I'm sorry for how this went to shit because I didn't listen to you about going out the back
>>40146924(2 of 2)Again, I was fucking miserable with a headache that would not go away, and those two had to know it. We went into one of the clubs, where my buddies promptly sat me down. Two club-girls magically appeared from a back room and gathered around my friends. While they made conversation, I noticed across the club a cute local straddling what must have been the most morbidly obese expat in the country, with his shirt off. I was, frankly, disgusted. Disgusted at my headache; disgusted at the beer that was failing to cure my ailment; disgusted by my carrer choices that had lead me to here; but mostly disgusted at the FAT FUCK taking advantage of this poor Thai girl.I got the attention of the girl flirting with H, and pointed over to the girl with the lardass. "Do you have 'VIP' rooms?" I asked. She affirmed. I asked to see the mama-san. I explained to the mama-san that I wanted lardball's girl for an hour of 'VIP treatment'.Well, I went into the VIP room with Lardball's girl and made the gestures for sleep to her. She got on the bed and looked at me with the "r u 'avin' a giggle m8?" face. I simply sat down in a chair and pulled my ballcap down over my eyes.An hour later, the mama-san came knocking, waking both me and the girl up. The girl explained things to the mama-san as I was led out, and right in front of my buddies (who still hadn't got any), both the girl and the mama-san gave me great big hugs and kisses on the cheek. Both H and F gave me the "WTF?" look as I sat down next to them, with a look of refreshment on my face. A little while later, we headed back to the ship. "I don't know about you guys, but I had fun today," I told them.They both gave me a look of utter hate. I never told them what happened in that VIP room.
>>40146848>Would you like me to dress up for moral support?>I'll call the base and have them send a ride over; they can come right to the door.>Give her our jacket, if we have one.

>>40147001Yeah, there's just something about the fat fuck expats in overseas countries that just disgusts me; even moreso when I see them obviously taking advantage of the locals.
>>40146848>Would you like me to dress up for moral support?>I'll call the base and have them send a ride over; they can come right to the door.Go out in smart casual, come back a Zeon admiral. That's how Settle rolls.
Why don't both Zeke and Feddie agree on this: Shoukaku would make either uniform look good.

>>40146939Yeah this apologize we aren't total dicks.
>>40147008Same here, Preach it brother
>>40147098Just as there's a Japanese boat shipposting on /tg/, yessiree.
>>40147056Mineva's a good person. But her entire family planned and carried out a war that killed half the Human race. It's like not hating Nazis because Hitler's niece is moe as fuck and happens to be a good person.
>>40147069No, and I don't know what you're insinuating OF COURSE IT WAS FUCKING DELIBERATE
>>40147008Gonna be honest, I could never get into megatokyo.I blame dwarf fortress.
>>40147130One of Hitler's nephews (IIRC) lived in America and fought for the allies.
>>40147008A very slow, very gradual snowball effect is what happened.By the by, has anyone checked the webcomic or keep up with it? It seems like the two idiots are still stuck in Japan and the story has drastically shifted spotlight away from them and onto the support cast.
yes there will be a third thread holy jesus christ this thrad is so fast why
>>40147054Sadly, it's always the one or two bad eggs that spoil everything for everyone.One Marine, ONE, who couldn't get his dick wet with a lady of negotiable affection, decides to rape her, and gets over a thousand other Marines and sailors kicked out of a port.Individuals like that ruin the fun for everyone and usually end up facing the worst possible bunk-room punishments possible, and not just by their fellow junior enlisted. No, that shit trickles down from ALL the ranks. Even the COs.
>>40146736If we swap out what we are wearing for a costume would Shoukaku be able to wear our pants?
Someone archive this before it dies.
>>40147157Its just like the good old days of SWQ, ten threads a night.
>>40147157Your playerbase can't shut the fuck up. There is also a 100 of them.
>>40147141By the time Dwarf Fortress was a thing, Megatokyo hadn't been one for years. If that's when you entered the /tg/ side of the Internet, you didn't miss much.
>>40147164>One Marine, ONE, who couldn't get his dick wet with a lady of negotiable affection, decides to rape her, and gets over a thousand other Marines and sailors kicked out of a port.Sounds familiar.Almost like Olongapo for some reason...
>>40147153Nah, I think most gave up when Piro started to update as slow as some QMs.That and after largo left, things started to get unbalanced.

>>40147190>That and after largo left,largo left so early in the comic that everything that came to define it was Piro's work entirely. I don't know why that stupid rumor persists.
>>40147194A good deal of people.
>>40147178>There are salty nerds in the archive.moe /qtg/ ghost threads that are salty as fuck because their super special snowflake quest barely manages to pull in any players while this turd of a quest snags a 100

>>40147234like right now? linkplz
>>40147186Yeah. Sadly, I fucked up (another drinking story) before they lifted the Olongapo restriction the first time.
>>40147227Well, he was a balancing influence. You can say what you want about the story, but for the amount of time it takes Piro to draw a single fucking page it's inexcusable that he turns out the rough drafts that he does. If he's taking that long, he'd better be giving us finished product.
>>40147265I drive a 2004 honda stick shift, and listen to dad rock. I think i'll be ok
>>40147184About the time Boatmurdered came out, yeah.>>40147194Well I just reread MEQ because of this stupid thread, so I guess I do.I wonder what would happen if /btg/ started getting archived. I wonder what kind of a score the fucking Vulpes shitstorms would have.
>>40147265I find suptg's archival system to be much easier to navigate, especially on while on the phone.
>>40147273As a Flip I hate how a lot of the people here can't seem to learn from those experiences.
>>40147266He's making shit up. Nobody talks about you at all over there.
>>40147227today? Yeah for sure but back then when people actually got into it while it was hot, Largo's writing was a thing.>>40147278Indeed his stuff (and thus the comic Largo's subplots) offset Piro's stuff nicely.
>>40147302That's not true. One guy is trying to stir shit. He's also the guy posting here about it.
>>40147177There's no way that shit happened...is there?
>>40147335Not *ten* threads, but routinely 3 per night. Running 3 times a week.SWQ was insane in its early days.
>>40147349it was a crazier time back then.

>>40147395Barely went anywhere. Hah. We had belt-fed SRM launchers, myomer weaves, and a pre-clan mech that out-Jenner'd a Jenner and refused to die. The greatest flaw of MEQ was timescale; That is, designing a mech and having a successful business are orders of magnitude apart.
>>40147395>dead quest that barely went anywhere.Hey! We got a fucking contract for the HZP, with very lucrative percentages, without even a working prototype and just the design schematics.

>>40147662Adobo is fairly easy to cook and richly-flavored to boot, which lends to it being a staple of Filipino cuisine.
>>40147662 Dude, I fucking hear you. On the USS John C. Stennis 2001 cruise it was fucking Pork Adobo. I like that shit just fine, but after the third straight week of left over pork adobo for motherfucking midrats I just went down to the ship store and bought every fucking chili ramen bowl they had.

wow. we're way past bump limit. and on page nine.next thread?
While we're only on page 9, I guess it can be time for...(more) STORIES FROM THE FLEET PART SIX: RETURN OF THE SPOOPYAll warships are haunted; this is a fact of life. Whether it's the spirit of the ship itself, or those who have either died or merely passed on the ship, there's a ghost or two somewhere in those passageways. On the Fort McHenry we had two 'haunted spaces', manned by the ghosts of suicides. The Tortuga had one, this time an accidental death.The first Fort Mac haunting is in one of the 'surge' berthing compartments, reserved for Marine riders or other temporarily attached elements. The guy hung himself off of one of the piping systems running through the overhead of the compartment, and no one found him for a few weeks. There were no riders during that time, so everyone thought he went AWOL. Since then, the practice has been that no one goes into those spaces unaccompanied while there are no occupants. That particualr berthing space has a lagged pipe that ALWAYS has a ringed groove around it from where the guy hung himself. It always shows back up even if they re-lag it. It's always 65 degrees in there, even during the hottest days of summer on the equator with the AC units down. Marines who are assigned to there complain about strange smells and the odd creaking sound that isn't natural background ship noises.(1 of 2)
>>40147756Yeah, but PGQ is shit.
>>40147727You're mess staff should've just fried the leftover adobo. Deep-fried pork adobo cuts are good stuff, especially with soy sauce/barbecue sauce.

>>40147756I really did try to like PGQ at one point. I really did. Thing was its literally waifus wat do, at the VERY LEAST gap an elf tries to put neat stuff into his quests to spice them up.
>>40147768(2 of 2)The second Fort Mac haunting is the flight deck, right on the aft portion. A sailor hung himself (what is it with sailors and hangings?) from the aft flagstaff and dangled over the side while in port. The morning after, the ship down the pier from us called us up to let us know we had something (more like someone) hanging from our fantail. Every now and then, on cloudy nights, a Presence can be felt back by the flagstaff, and every now and then a length of rope can be found hanging off of it.The Tortuga haunting is on the port side wingwall of her welldeck. During rough seas, amphibs usually flood their ballast tanks so we sit lower in the water, minimizing the effects of the ocean as much as possible. A deck seaman, on his way back to the aft lookout station during heavy seas, fell over the lifeline along the wingwall and into the empty welldeck. Poor guy died on impact. His spirit still walks the portside wingwall every now and then. We actually had one Boatswain's Mate who refused to stand the aft lookout alone because of the ghost. The guy was over six feet tall and built like a brick shithouse. I once actually saw the ghost myself. I was back in that area performing maintenance on some DC equipment, wehn I saw someone approaching me down the wingwall. I couldn't make out who it was, glanced down at the fire nozzle I was cleaning, looked back up, and the guy was just GONE. No other way out from wingwall from where I was and where I saw him. I promptly NOPE'd out of there after securing the fire nozzle.
