You think very briefly of introducing Arizona and letting the morons get a camera-full of her for a second - before deciding that having a bunch of microphones shoved in the mute, almost invisible girl's face would end very, very badly. And even if you did, there's no telling which way that pack of furry little bastards will turn. The only option is to head them off at the strait.You slip out of the room and break into your fastest hobble with Arizona close at your heels. You make the lobby in time to see a young girl sprinting towards the double glass doors, missing a shoe. Behind her are three corgis, foam flying from their diminutive muzzles as they close on her. You hit the door-bar with your shoulder as you barrel through, but even with the path open you can see the girl isn't going to make it. >ARIZONA, LIGHT'EM UP>SAILORS WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING>PIMP CANE.

>>42693614After googling, its USS Washington from the Chinese copy.
>>42693647It depends on the pizza, and on the dog.Most dogs are lactose intolerant, meaning indigestion from the cheese. Then there's the chance of garlic or onion as part of the toppings, which are poisonous to dogs.Then there's the oil, salt, and spices that could also be a little toxic. Then there's the development of pancreatitis over time.There's the potential that nothing wrong will happen because the pizza will get converted into metal, explosives, and oil, but do we really want to subject all of our PT Boats to that test in the middle of a fucking war, when we're in theater?

Seeing that the onrushing furry furies are your own, er, vessels, and nominally under your command, you draw yourself up to your full height, suck in a deep lungful of breath and cut loose with your loudest, angriest bellow just as you feel Arizona setting your hat back on your brow. “SAILORS, CUT THROTTLE AND HEAVE TO!” The US Navy is a highly professional force that actively recruits good, professional people for its commissioned and warrant officer ranks (most of the time.) Despite that, sailors are still marvelously capable of operating a multimillion dollar sensor suite for months on end with little sleep, till it seems like they are detecting surface contacts unassisted via trance, like the oracle of fucking Delphi - and then they walk off the ship with a laminated illustrated diagram of their “three-drink maximum” tied to their wrist and come back three sheets to the wind, two bells past the point of no return and in possession of a starfish named Betelgeuse. People like this set a man up for the most violent mood swings on Earth, from fatherly pride to aghast with rage in mere heartbeats. You can do Disappointed Dad pretty good, but the time you caught a crew chief (with a fucking college degree, no less) seating 5-inch PD fuzes with a hammer you managed to drag him halfway to the rail before you vanished under a dogpile of Marines. (You still think Hate was miffed at your hypocrisy rather than your intent.) And serving on a Flight I/II boat, which creaks, groans, bitches and generally makes more noise than anything else save a CV's fantail deck has honed your Angry Voice into a LOUD angry voice. The booming thunder of your wrath echoes over the torn-up turf, the corgis little ears twitching as the shockwave passes - - and they keep plowing on, snarling and barking like tiny madmen, still intent on their prey.
For a second you're so stunned that you just stare dumbfounded as the first one catches the fleeing girl's heel and sinks their teeth in, bringing her to ground. The ragged edge of her scream rips through you, scraping down your nerves and turning your stomach - it echoes somewhere in your mind, around a shattered bridge that's beginning to burn. By the time you're moving it's too late - the cane is just swinging back like a baseball bat, still too far away to use when the first sharp crack snaps across the yard, one of the corgis jerking violently as Arizona's round hits home. The victim has curled into an incoherent ball, her scream growing hoarse as the others savage her crossed arms, trying for her vitals. Two more shots send them flying, then fleeing at a fast limp, trailing gooey oil from their wounds. You stumble down to one knee by the girl. “Are you okay?” The girl - Shigure, you see now - scuttles away from you on hands and knees before bursting into flight again, sobbing wildly and flinging her arms around, her bite wounds trailing little drops of blood on the concrete. By the time you find your feet, she's long gone around the corner of the building. >We can't leave her like this, not at all - catch her.>We can't let these goddamn dogs keep running loose - we need to catch them, now. >Stay on-mission: if Goto's caught out by Kongou with those cameras still on this side of Yokosuka's gate, the consequences could be crucial and far-reaching.

>>42694283I dunno, Goto strikes me as the kind of man who could totally smash a fresh bong twice. He seems to have the competitive drinking part on lock, and he already smokes, so it's not like he has virgin lungs.

I bet the corgis chasing shigure were the PT boats present at Surigao Strait.

>>42694406the daughteru button got hit... and rage from the choice blowing up, if not other things. >>42694503 that too.
>>42694406It's probably Sammy's yeah.So I guess she should be the one to do it then!Executions were decently common in those days, and they are still legal, y'know!
>>42694406no planefag listen in order to prevent some of our ships from fighting some of our other ships, we should scrap them. it's actually brilliant when you think about it.
>>42694486Shigure is a mildly popular ship. You did notice all the people wanting to daughteru her last session, right? Those kinds of people don't take their girls getting hurt very well.
Did Arizona fire her secondaries to drive off the dogs? In half a minute we are going to have the press all over us.
>>42694497Is that thing what happens when a Chryssalid rapes a Decepticon?
>>42694406Dogs get put down when they maul humans, don't they?Or are these dogs going to get a pass because they weren't biting a human, just a kanmusu?
>>42694406>disobeying a direct order>attacking and damaging an allied ship while flaunting a direct orderWe can't exactly throw them in lockup and have the MPs come in at 2 AM to beat them with billy clubs, now can we?
Any chance the specific corgi that attacked her is PT-152? Conflicting sources say IJN Shigure either blasted a hole in PT-152 and nearly sank her, or accidentally used a near miss to douse fires aboard PT-152.
>>42694503Shipsluttery aside, how would an actual millitary handle one of their dogs attacking a soldier?
>>42694463>calling planefag anon
>>42694531Sure. If you want the naval Chief of Staff- AKA your fucking GOD- to remove you from fucking command as fast as you can fucking blink.
>>42694539She was probably using her revolver.
>>42694539Tertiaries, probably. Even her secondaries would have smashed a PT boat into kindling.
>>42694563Marine vs. Army altercations off base are nothing new.
>>42694534Oh, you're including daughterus under waifus. Gotcha>>42694539Probably her revolver
>>42694442If it was Sammy, then Sammy gets to do it. Though we should probably talk with our CO first about whether it would be better to just send them back to the states.
>>42694550I think some time-out time in a kennel would work.Or not--that's actually a pretty fucking terrible way to discipline pets--not constructive.
>>42694547>>42694550>>42694563Anon, those dogs are also ship spirits. Also they're technically considered ship hulls like an actual steel ship. A mere rear admiral has no authority to scrap a ship.
>>42694575They were bleeding oil so I think they were in "ship" state. I'm not sure her revolver would have the punch to go through the PT boats.
>>42694587What about US ships attacking an allied nation's ships?
>>42694587They felt that burn from the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli.
>>42694566Aw c'mon, we made tons of PT boats!What's the loss of a few untrustworthy ones compared to the hundred we already have?
>>42694566How will the Chief of Staff react to a US ship intentionally, not accidentally, going after and damaging an allied ship?
>>42694614...they're made of wood.
>>42694632Remember what happened to Willie when she shot the president.
>>42694406i'm mad at everything and i don't even know why
Is there any way to court-martial multiple corgis possessing the spirits of PT boats?Either way, there will be a major legal snafu coming up.
>>42694442Hate's duties are actually force protection. Settle stuck him with the corgis because he figured it'd give him something to do and he was the only one able to exercise some kind of control over them.
>>42694650He'd form a board of inquiry, they'll dick around for four to six months, the navy would publicly apologize, it would get forgotten about four to six months later, and nothing would come of it.
There is a slight bit of overreaction here.However, the overall sentiment is correct. Insubordination of that degree is... intolerable.
Maybe we should send the offending corgis to the Philippines for a bit? They could probably use the help.
>>42694661Well, that was an accident.This is obviously a willful act of aggression against an ally, going against the direct orders of an Admiral!
>>42694632>What about US ships attacking an allied nation's ships?OH GOD HOW DID SEA SPARROW GO THERE HELP I AM NOT GOOD AT WRA
>>42694564>>calling planefag anonNAW, I was talking to the SO EDGE anons. Planefag is the best fatgreek, I'd never tell that magnificent bundle of sticks to shut up.

>>42694023>>42694587>[x] We can't leave her like this, not at all - catch her.Go, my vote!
>>42694587Jokes aside, we're talking about a US military dog running down and drawing blood from an allied nation's sailor/ship. On a base.Right outside of a conference room full of media.And who disobeyed a direct order.
>>42694690All of Willie's crew got court marshaled. The president himself had to go bail them out.
>>42694694Which one was that? The only one I remember was a Ticoderoga going out of it's way to shoot down an iranian passenger jet.
>>42694702Torpedo trollops know their own.
>>42694702Eh, they just need a dedicated handler who gives a shit and isn't a memace
>>42694725This. Dog or no, you can't just turn a blind eye to this.
>>42694738Sooo, Willie then?
>>42694725At this point, you should realize that planefag never lets anybody on the good guy side die.
>>42694730USS Vincennes was the one involved.Incidentally, her predecessor was sunk at Savo Island.
>>42694406If you want to go by 'hulls' these are American ships deliberately attacking a Japanese ship in defiance of direct orders from their commanding officer in peace time. And they still kept trying to kill her.
>>42694738We need Johnston. Or Hoel. Or O'Bannon.
>>42694750Would giving Willie command over them be a good idea?

>>42694685Bingo. Assuming the worst, they'd be transferred back stateside and used to patrol the Puget sound or some stupid shit who the fuck cares. If they caught word you scrapped them- or fucking worse, forced Sammy B to scrap them, you'd probably end up in leavenworth. If you were fucking lucky. Assuming Sammy B didn't just fucking shoot you herself. and if you think for a half fucking second Arizona has a chance in fuck against her, You and I don't know the same fucking girls, here.
>>42694761>in peace timeAren't we at war? Though I suppose since the Abyssals don't have a recognized government, we can't technically be at war.
>>42694761So Dereliction of Duty, Mutiny, Insubordinate conduct towards a superior officer, and a shitton of violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
>>42693581>That thong. Unf.
>>42694800>Aren't we at war? Though I suppose since the Abyssals don't have a recognized government, we can't technically be at war.Quick! What was the first war in US History fought:-- Without a formal declaration of war,-- Against stateless "enemy combatants," -- While freely utilizing Private Military Corporations?
>>42694825World War 2, duh.
>>42694780Yeah, because the Greeks themselves couldn't win a fight against the Turks unless they got someone else to do all the fighting. Then again, the only difference between Turks and Greeks is whether they're Muslim or Christian.
>>426948251812 when Americans tried to go after Canadians?
>>42694825Wasn't it in 1790s?
>>42694658Sure, but they have the durability of full-size PT boats. The scaling effect applies to the corgis, but not Ari's revolver, since that's just a regular gun, not part of her ship outfit.Shoot a wooden PT boat with a regular old revolver, and you might make a hole, but it's not going to be any serious damage. I'm guessing their wounds are comparable to the worse end of what you might get horsing around with BB guns -- enough to hurt and cause a little bleeding, but not really anything more serious than that.
>>42694825>What was the first war in US Historya certain rebellion to kick out the brit bongs?
>>42694861Didn't we declare war against the UK for that, so I wouldn't say 1812, though I thought that.
>>42694825The easy answer would be the War on Terror, wouldn't it? Part of me wants to say the Revolutionary War, though it doesn't fit with all three criteria.
>>42694825Any of the Indian Wars?
>>42694790Are the PT boats really that valuable?Though considering how much the military authorities cover for the crimes that their Marines commit, I shouldn't be surprised that an officer trying to enact justice would instead be the one sent to prison.
>>42694885I could see the French and Indian angle
>>42694870Do we know where Ari got her revolver? If she manifested with it there might be some residual mojo
>>42694825What is the first war in US HistoryI'll take Same Shit for 250 Years for $600, Alex.
>>42694878Well the US did it to annex Canada it's just back then it was called British North America.
>>42694894They're more valuable than a meatsack, that's for sure.
>>42694891Fails the "stateless" part. They had states, just not ones we would consider conventional.
>>42694790Arizona has the innate advantage of not being a Japanese ship when it comes to dealing with surface vesselsSammy would get torn the fuck up by her myriad of 5" guns
>>42694906But less than an actual DD.
>>42694825The Big Bang
>>42694906Maybe we should wait until the PT's actually murder someone, or damage a ship to the point where they have to get laid up for a week.
>>42694917And the DD's fine. No harm no foul right?
>>42694860>Then again, the only difference between Turks and Greeks is whether they're Muslim or Christian.... the defining division between East and West since the fucking Reconquista? Yeah, no shit sherlock
I know it feels good to dogpile on the really stupid suggestions so you don't have to contemplate the actually difficult vote being offered, but if you keep putting it off or voting out of instinct, this shit will keep happening.
>>42694894Basically, the justification is that people would be more scared of...tiny, wooden torpedo boats somehow going abyssal as a result of being scuttled then, y'know, justice for wrongdoing.They'll just get a swat behind the ear and the story will continue on as if nothing is wrong with deliberate attacks on an ally and willfully ignoring orders.There is a reason Planefag made Settle a Rear Admiral in this, and that is to give us some power, but not enough to actually make any decisions like this.
>>42694916And in a conventional fight I'm pretty sure she knows the basics of CQC
>>42694825The first Barbary War actually.>Without a formal declaration of war,Never declared>Against stateless "enemy combatants,"Ottoman Pirates>While freely utilizing Private Military Corporations?Battle of Derne 50 Marines500 mercenaries
>>42694971It's not like this is that bad. I mean, we get to go and comfort the daughteru!Yes it's stupid but good luck convincing anon to change his mind. It never happened throughout all of SWQ, it won't happen here.
>>42694959These days the divider is more shithole/not shithole
>>42694995Lookit you, bein' all historical and such.
>Planefag>Actually writing updates
>>42694935They weren't stateless. They were naval vessels of the various emirs and sheiks of the North African coast. Technically they were part of the Ottoman Empire, but Istanbul had zip influence west of Egypt.
>>42694999>anon starts picking the smart votes>deme has to write narratives without an excess of SHENANIGANSTHE TEAR FEASTER BECOMES THE FEAST HIMSELF
>>42694959No, see, Greeks like to pretend they have a direct descent from classical Athens and thus aren't dirty brown people like their eastern neighbor. This is wrong. Genetically and culturally, they're Turks who happen to be Christian.
>>42695030AWiY continuation is more likely than that.
I wonder if this thread will be called Corgigate in the archives.>>42694971You're in a planefag thread, the fact that anon actually voted not to call Kongou to the stage is a rare good sensible choice.>>42694972That and it's not like Sammy really got punished for decking Mogami and Choukai. At least not by us, it took MPs in an effort lead by Shiruani (or wheover you spell her name)
>>42695030I'M TRYING TO WRITE, STOP MAKING ME GRIN LIKE A FUCKING SMARTASS CAT>>42695039lemme tell you 'bout turks sometime
>>42694954Oh suuuure. They surely won't try to murder Shigure again, like they've repeatedly tried to do throughout the quest! Nope, not at all. It's not like they disobeyed orders and required getting shot by Arizona to stop, and temporarily at all.No harm, no foul, after all!
>>42695039Because the fucking Turks raped and genocided the actual Greeks out of existence. It's like how the Arabs raped the ancient Egyptians into nothingness.
>>42695049AWiY when ;_;
>>42694971>>42694999Yeah whatever. Shigure seems to keep getting bullied. Either by the dogs or by other people that are acting like shitheads. We even scared her in the tree that one time.THE HEALING MUST BEGIN
>>42694898Eh, maybe, but I wouldn't count on the scaling effect coming into play for weapons that are more "props" rather than actual ship's armaments, even if they did manifest with them.For instance, I don't think Tenryuu's sword or Tatsuta's glaive do ship-level damage. Not quite a direct comparison, since those are melee weapons rather than anything that could have a direct parallel to what ships (well, ships past the days of ramming as a routine tactic) would actually use, but still.
>>42695051>the fact that anon actually voted not to call Kongou to the stage is a rare good sensible choiceIt should be noted that this only happened because planefag immediately jumped in and replied "ITS HAPPENING" to the write-in. I guarantee if he didn't do that it would have won.
>>42695051>The fact that anon actually voted not to call Kongou to the stage is a rare good sensible choice.Give them time Anon will show those true colours soon enough.
>>42695069Romans, Slavs and Franks got there first, Brosephus.
>>42694916You're adorable. Wrong as fuck, but adorable.
>>42695066>b-but anon, I wanted to write about MC trying to shout down a bunch of corgis
>You need to get these Corgis on leashesRealistically, Shigure can wait. Nobody will listen to her, and we can see to her personally later, once the adrenaline dies down. Meanwhile, PTs are causing havoc all over the place, and leaving them unattended will cause more fires.
>>42695097>wanting to kill the corgis/force Hate to kill the corgisI think they already have, chief.
>>42695107Look Just because the Turks were late to the Greek fucking doesn't make it any less valid.
There needs to be some type of punitive measures, at minimum the equivalent of confinement to quarters (ie, chained up to the kennels), up to reassigning them to some menial guard duties, under the eyes of a less forgiving handler.
>>42695088It's kind of amazing how much damage control planefag has had to run this thread. Imagine the choices retards would've voted for if he didn't nicely label the stupid write-ins for them!
>>42695130It has been said /specifically/ that these are the corgis that went after /her/ during Suriago. Not 'OMFG ALL THE CORGIS FEREVER' are running amok. Christ.
During the burning of Smyrna, Edsall helped rescue Anatolian Greeks from the Turks.
>>42695051It's really quite unfortunate. I think that just having them all be virtually untouchable unless they just started murdering people willy nilly is boring.
>>42695066But planefag, the winning votes said go rescue the girl.People DISCUSSED on punishing the Corgis but the vote to go after them didn't win.
>>42695117Hate, unlike the Japanese, US battleships are actually capable of hitting the target.Sammy is a fucking demon, but she's a 1300 ton demon with splinter protection as her main belt. Against ships that can actually hit a target, shes dead.
>>42695186No we are ripping them apart for being shits.
Hmmm. If only I had anything to say about the current debate.But I don't. The decision made was the right one.
>>42695079AWiY never because deme wrote himself into a corner with WAR, can't into writing Keine/Minna after a certain point and because writing characters who are not protag and his party is fun
>>42694916I suspect Hate's talking about mentalities, Sammy's far more puglistic than the larger ship classes.>>42695157If the Corgi thing didn't result in Shigure being bitten, I doubt some people would be so enraged like they are right now.>>42695188Not sure if better ship specs is enough to offset personality differences.
>>42695168No, they didn't. They were just observers. They stood back and watched Ataturk genocide the Greeks.
>>42695137There weren't any Greeks left to fuck by then. What little Greek was left, the Turks absorbed. The Ottoman Empire was basically a continuation of the ERE, only without the decrepitude (it took a few centuries and the unrelenting hostility of all the neighbors for that to set in).
>>42695117Furthering my theory that Sammy punches WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY above her weight due to Taffy 3's memetic status.She shouldn't hit that hard, but she does. HYPE THRUSTERS+Leveling Effect=SAMMY B TORPEEEEDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>42695165So lawnmower dude was just a coincidence?
>>42695188Sammy has torpedos.Torpedos always beat battleships.
>>42695224Sammy only lasted as long as she did because of Japans notorious inability to hit a small moving target. As soon as she WAS hit, she was completely fucked up.Arizona's 5"/25's could be firing AA fragmentation rounds at her and it would still penetrate her thickest armor.
>>42695205Meh, the Greeks wrote a check they couldn't cash. Ask what happened to the Balkan Muslims outside of Bosnia and you'll get an idea of what would have happened in Thrace and Anatolia if the Greeks had won.
>>42695205The 600+ survivors transferred to Edsall by Litchfirld, a sister ship, from Smyrna say otherwise.
>>42695117I get the feeling if Sammy were an animal she'd be a honey badger, a vicious little thing.http://www.badassoftheweek.com/honeybadger.html
>>42695186Arizona doesn't have a fancyassed Radar FCS, there, brotato. She's got the same shit, more or less, the fucking nips had. That hellfire headset? that's a search radar at best. At fucking best. Not to mention all her 5" guns are either fucking casemate or AA, neither of which is going to be terribly fucking effective against Sammy B. Northampton could probably shut her down, he's got the firepower and FCS to pull it off. Willie might could, assuming she could unfuck herself. Hornet's hosed, Harder's probably 50/50 at fucking best.
>>42695224Hate's just chest thumping. Plus being protective of Sammy. What an oddball.
>>42695261Litchfield. Damnit autocorrect, I counted on you.
>>42695224So maybe we should send Sammy in towards suicidal attacks, because hey, it's Sammy, she'll come out of it fine, right?
>>42695234Sammy has only 3 torpedoes.
>>42695282Consider the last battle, where we made literally the opposite of that decision
>>42695267Sammy is already on Badass of the Week, well Taffy 3 is.
>>42695323True she's no Kitakami...
>>42695323how high are you? Fletchers have two quintuple tubed launchers
>>42695335It went well, yes, but with how much Hate and others are hyping up Sammy's capabilities, perhaps we could have taken more risks with Sammy.
>>42695268Hate, Arizonas 5"/25's fire at twenty rounds per minute and she has four per side in addition to five 5"/51's designed for the EXPLICIT purpose of killing torpedo boats and destroyers which fire at 10 rounds per minute on average.Sammy has 130 rounds each minute from Arizonas 5" guns alone.And before anyone says "oooh, the 5"/25 was a single purpose AA mount!", shut the fuck up. The guns were used against surface targets and found to be EXTREMELY accurate because the AA mount allowed for them to be trained on moving targets much easier than the heavy 5"/51 mounts.I'm not even an Arizonafag, Sammy is quite simply fucked.
>>42695358Sammy B ain't a fletcher.
>>42695358>how high are you?Glass houses, m8
>>42695224I mean, the KanColle game gives ships a luck stat based on their actual record of pulling out of tough scrapes during the war. If anything remotely similar is at play in this quest (which I suspect there may be, given that we've recently had Shigure's unusual luck brought up in-story, albeit merely as superstition/speculation), Sammy would certainly qualify for such a boost.
>>42695335Sammy attacked an Abyssal cruiser... by jumping on her and bashing her in the head. Which now I'm sure that any abyssal who hears about that are mentally going "HAX!"
>>42695362Or we can disregard them because this isn't fucking Deadliest Warrior and she was part of a division that was part of a group that was part of a wider battle, not an arena fight
>>42695358https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Samuel_B._Roberts_(DE-413)>USS Samuel B. Roberts (DE-413) was a John C. Butler-class destroyer escort of the United States Navy.>3 × 21 in. torpedo tubes (1×3)Anon pls
>>42695358...Sammy's a Butler-class Destroyer EscortShe has all of 3 tubes
>>42695282Nooooooo, I'm saying Sammy and Taffy 3 are disproportionately powerful for what they are. Scrappy little fuckers, for sure.Half of their toughness comes from being living vessels for the collective "I DON'T GIVE TWO TUGS ON A DEAD DOG'S COCK" of their famous moment in time.Sammy's like...perma-adrenaline dumped. She might be shot to shit, but doesn't FEEL it, doesn't acknowledge it. She doesn't care.Her boilers run on pure liquid spite and rage, and rage...Rage is a hell of an anesthetic.
>>42695388It's not like anybody dies in a planefag quest.Especially not a character like Sammy.
>>42695386sounds like a honey badger thing to do.
>>42695358Sammy is a John C. Butler Class Destroyer Escort.
>>42695385Sammy is more like Yuudachi, the Nightmare of Solomon though. Both where not really lucky as they both sank in their famous battles, but they both punched well above their weight class and did damage completely out of proportion to what their type usually accomplish.
>>42695424Said boilers also empty fairly quickly if they have huge, gaping holes in them. No pressure = no mobility = soon to be ded.
>>42695467In that case Sammy'd get a sizable firepower boost then like Yuudachi.
>>42695424She completely ignored her speed limits during the entire battle without any apparent injury, that can't be just 'leveling effect'. Maybe she's going around stealing the best fairies from everyone.
>>42695467>the Nightmare of SolomonI thought it was Demon of Solomon.
>>42695389Wait a mo it was Kongo's 14inch bongo's that put an end to Sammy?God we really need some write fags on Sammys first meeting with her killer only to find... well Kongo being Kongo.
>>42695385The luck stat tends to correlate more to survival ability than to damage dealt. Yukikaze has the highest luck in-game, while Yuudachi's is only slightly above average despite her exploits in the Solomon sea.Then again, Myoukou has more luck than Haguro somehow, so who knows?
>>42695365she has 9 guns per side. Let's be fucking generous and pretend she can bring all the casemate 5" guns to bear against Sammy. We'll fucking pretend. That's nine guns firing an average of 10 rounds a minute, so 90 rounds a minute, give or fucking take. During Samar, Sammy B was under fire from at least Chikuma, Nagato, Yamato, and Haruna, as wel as that fucking hyperactive bint Kongo. I'm more than fucking willing to bet she was taking more than 90 rounds a fucking minute at that point. And she still fucked Chikuma the fuck up. And before you go "MUH FCS" fucking no. Arizona never got the radar FCS that made our shit so fucking scary, she had the same bullshit rangefinders everyone else had- and nip FCS crews were trained to FUCK and back. Ours weren't, we had a fucking amazeballs computer to do it for us. And third, If Sammy B goes over on the spot, she's going to be angry, and moving, before Arizona even has outfit. Arizona is straight up fucked.
>>42695469AHAHHAHAHA I CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER THE SOUND OF "ELDRITCH AVATARS OF NAVAL MIGHT"Bitch, we in shipsloot country. Physics and rationality are NOT the ultimate arbiters here.
>>42695526>Hate explains why your waifu is shit.
>>42695526Thank you for the exhaustive explanation, Lieutenant.
>>42695501>no injuryWe don't know that>>42695553The shipsluts straight-up report damage taken to their boilers and rudders and other components, dude
>>42695553Except Hornet was dead in the water during the later part of the Bonins, and the Mustin crews were scrambling to restart them at sea.
Special delivery from your friends at /wowsg/Its the St Louis
>>42695526Excuse me, I fucked the math. My fucking bad. it's 130 round a minute. The end result is the fucking same- 130 rounds/minute is probably less than she survived under while fucking Chikuma. Probably a LOT less.
>>42695508悪夢 (Akumu) is nightmare悪魔 (Akuma) is demonmost sources I could find are nightmare.also this:The whole Nightmare of Solomon can be interpreted as a Gundam reference, but the Nightmare of Solomon in Gundam is actually an allusion to Yuudachi. Anavel Gato single-handedly holds off an Earth Federation force during the Battle of Solomon, allowing his allies to withdraw and survive. During the Solomon Islands campaign, Yuudachi thwarts the American fleet's attempt to intercept the IJN task group she is a part of, breaking their line and creating a tactical stalemate, allowing her allies to withdraw and survive. Thus, the Nightmare of Solomon.
>>42695526Or we skip the shipfighting bullshit and Arizona just clothelines Sammy in the neck.
>CorgigateWho gives a shit if corgies attacked a waifu, jesus christ
>>42695596>Its the St Louisbest tier 3 girl

Or all parties involved are confined to quarters until Settle figure out WTF started this SNAFU. Then Settle mets out the punishment in a cold and methodical manner.
>>42695601But Solomon is generally associated with demons.
>>42695644This in all actuality is what will most probably happen.
Can Sammy kill Servants?
>>42695617No feeling like a ripple fire broadside
>>42695596>tfw St. Louis is an abyssal in this quest
>>42695526>During Samar, Sammy B was under fire from at least Chikuma, Nagato, Yamato, and Haruna, as wel as that fucking hyperactive bint Kongo.the ships were also being harassed and were attempting to hit a moving target in high seas, all while fucking with each-others targeting by throwing up so many shell splashes so there's that>And before you go "MUH FCS" fucking no. Arizona never got the radar FCS that made our shit so fucking scary, she had the same bullshit rangefinders everyone else had- and nip FCS crews were trained to FUCK and back. Ours weren't, we had a fucking amazeballs computer to do it for us.US gun crews were equal in daylight performance to Japanese ones. The only thing that was skimped out on was night time training. US gunnery during the day using yee olde manual rangefinders was every bit as good as a Japanese or British crew, but the 5"/25 is far and away more flexible at engaging targets on the surface than the equivalent jap AA gun.>And third, If Sammy B goes over on the spot, she's going to be angry, and moving, before Arizona even has outfit. Arizona is straight up fucked.considering ship kits are literally split second things, sammy is going to be flailing at a very angry 35,000 ton battleship at point blank range that has more than twice her main armament on each side. Even Arizonas .50 cals can penetrate Sammy at that distance.You can go for speed and maneuverability either. Arizonas a standard type. That means a tighter turning circle than sammy and 21 knots to Sammy's 24.
>>42695637You're being a fucking baby because a waifu got hurt by dogs.She's a ship. She will deal with it.
>>42695656WHY THE FUCK DO YOU EVEN HAVE THAT FUCKING PICTURE. WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT EVEN A FUCKING PICTURE OF. neverfucking mind don't fucking tell me.
>>42695596dem legs, tho.

>>42695580>>42695587And that's that.
You swear violently, tossing Arizona the keys to the Jeep. “You drive, hon, I've got to call base security and have them round'em up.” With their Outfits summoned, mere pistol bullets will only discourage them - at best. PT boats were basically the motorcycle gangs of the Pacific islands; they strapped any goddamn ordinance they could to the deck and got into frequent shoot-outs with shallow-draft barges bristling with even heavier weaponry. Their campaign was a nautical Mad Max movie that lasted four damn years, in essence - and without a firm hand literally holding their leash, they've reverted to their basic instincts. You were worried that PT-109 might show up to settle a grudge, but it seems Shigure's harassers from Saigurio strait are intent on finishing the job. Torpedo attack of bigger vessels was the job they were built for, and rarely got to attempt. An involuntary shudder goes through you at the thought, for no reason you can immediately finger.
>>42695652The entire military would be forced on the defensive against a servant. No I did not forget to add the plural.
>>42695684I dunno, it might be nice to see a character in a planefag quest face consequences for something, even if the characters are dogships.
>>42695686Your next prank.Fart directly into a microphone before someone uses it.Record the results for youtube.
>>42695684Insisting I'm some sort of waifu faggot isn't an argument. We want to run a fucking fleet, we can't have the ships damaging one another.>>42695682Outfits seem to be ambiguous in their summoning time, annoyingly
>>42695604That would imply Sammy wouldn't bum rush her before that point. Sammy tends to be a small super compact package of rage. She could likely beat up Yamato because the other ship's far too gentle to really fight back.>>42695684I don't think she was in ship mode though. And they're closer to people than ships, and this shipgirl in particular is seen as a Priah by most other japanese ships.
Following your directions, Arizona curbs the jeep near the closest area of significant greenery, then helps you out to hike the remaining distance, following the trickled trail of blood on the sidewalks to a nearby tree; the beginning of a rough untamed patch in the middle of the base that climbs one of the many very steep hills. Much like the first time you met her, she's taken refuge in the boughs to escape her canine pursuers. Walking beneath the thick canopy, you touch the trunk gently and look up into the branches. There's a slight rustling above as you're spotted.“G-go away.”“Shigure?”“GO AWAY! GO AWAY YOU YANKEE, GO AWAY!”“Shigure, I'm n-”“GO TO HELL, ALL OF YOU!” Shigure's youthful voice is strained and brittle. Arizona taps you on the shoulder to catch your attention, then points you towards a bystander - an extremely bored-looking girl who wears her long dark hair in a single thick braid. She's gazing blankly at the whole tableau with the air of someone staring at something just barely unique enough that they don't know what kind of retarded bullshit to write it off as yet. “Uh... Kitakami,” you say, her name surfacing after a moment. “Could you... uh...?” You gesture at the tree.
>>42695706The Atlanta too, if you want to throw money at WG is hilarious https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67vxOXan8YQ
ITT planefag plans on getting more waifus and shipfus hurt outside of battle since that produces more anon tears for the least amount of effort.
She blinks slowly, her head swiveling left, then right to verify that you are, indeed, addressing her. She turns her bored eyes back to you. “You want me to do it?”You just stare at her, letting her read the “no shit” plastered across you face.She rolls her shoulders; not quite a shrug. “Fine.” Striding beneath the tree, she sighs, crosses her arms, and cranes her neck back to address the branches. “Look, you can't go claiming all the foliage on base. You only get one. You can sulk all you want; nobody's gonna stop you. But at least don't bother everyone else.”“I DON'T! I DON'T! I DON'T!” The canopy thrashes violently with Shigure's unseen frustration. “I J-J-JUST W-W-WANT TO B-B-E LEFT ALONE A-A-AND TH-THEY W-WON'T LEAVE M-ME BE!” You snap your fingers to get Kitakami's attention, then point out the blood on the ground and tap your leg to indicate that you need her down from there to receive medical attention. Kitakami sizes up the blood on the ground, quirking her mouth. It's a nontrivial amount. She takes a deep, deep breath as she accepts that she's gonna have to do this. “I don't give a crap what you want, Shigure. Those retarded puffballs are already gone. If you don't come down, I'll pull you out.” “You'll die,” Shigure's voice returns with a sudden icy steadiness that sends a pulse of hot alarm through your blood. “They all die. I'll kill you, Kitakami.”
>>42695731>Kitakami>anything with destroyersWell this is going to go pretty badly.
>>42695650Because Solomon was the name of someone that supposedly enslaved demons, and the islands where named after him.And that makes the nickname even more brutal, as its the nightmare of the demon enslaver.
Kitakami's lips tighten as she peers into the tree suspiciously. She backs up carefully till she can stand on tiptoe and whisper at you - “I don't think she's bluffing. I could probably get her either way since we can double-team her. Right, ooh-e-” her voice dies off suddenly, and for a second a ripple of emotion crosses her face. Visibly shaken, she turns back to the tree, her tone sounding actively casual now, rather than just flat-out bored. “"Listen. Come down already. We don't have to go hold hands and have a party or anything. I'll just take you back to your room. I'm not afraid of those drooling rejects the Americans brought over." She flips her braid back over her shoulder. “You owe me for this,” she tells you with a confidence none of you feel anymore. There is no reply from the tree. You've had this kind of conversation once - with Somalian pirates holding guns to a tanker crew's head. The quick escalation is bad, very bad - pulling back and calling for help isn't an option anymore. Something has to give and soon, and you're worried it's gonna be Shigure. >Back off - let Kitakami wait.

>>42695755>“You'll die,” Shigure's voice returns with a sudden icy steadiness that sends a pulse of hot alarm through your blood. “They all die. I'll kill you, Kitakami.”Oh look I've read doujins about this Shigure.
>>42695755She's in THAT mood again.

>>426956121) A recurring theme in this quest is shipgirl mental issues. Shigure is already at-risk due to the whole "shun the luck vampire" bullshit; getting mauled by corgis certainly isn't going to help matters any. And if she gets too fucked up in the head, that could affect her performance in combat, or even worse possibly even cause her to go Abyssal.2) The press were, just minutes ago, floating the issue of out-of-control PT boatdogs. If they get wind of a PT corgi attack on an allied shipgirl occurring during that very press conference where they asked about that exact risk and were assured it was not an issue, we would likely have a literal Corgigate scandal on our hands. We have enough on our plate with the Abyssal threat, the last thing we need is to let the media vultures get wind of something to whip up a bullshit frenzy over to add PR hassles to our list of shit to deal with.It's got nothing to do with waifus, and everything to do with responsible leadership.

We just finished giving our last fuck, and I just polished off my eighth drink of the night. Let's live dangerously, Admiral.
>>42695799It's not even "attacked by Corgis". If it were a one-time thing it could be a thing to deal with.But they've been harassing her since the quest started. Our very first contact with Shigure had her atop another tree. We don't know how long this has been the case. Either way, it's at least a week of constant paranoia on top of ostracization on top of her standard shipgirl mental fuckery package.

>>42695907and having Miss Destroyer hater involved would help things much? It might work for getting her out, but it wouldn't solve anything else.
>>42695882Are you fucking retarded? It's in her goddamn lines that Kitakami finds destroyers annoying, if you're gonna be a canon prude at least get it right instead of embarrassing yourself
>>42695902>I doubt having a ship that's known for disliking destroyers help would actually help.Hm? Well not directly, but at this point the careful touch isn't gonna help.Like with mental patients, sometime you just have to get them restrained.

>>42695770>Find Hamp, see if he can convince Shigure to come down
>>42695892Nigga i got a password on that shit, it doesnt help. I'm about to start blaming those donut scarfing fatass intel spooks. Like, why the fuck is THIS saved on here?

Maybe we could just send the PT boats on nearly suicidal patrol duties for awhile.They have a surprising tendency to survive such things anyway.
>>42695897It's spooky super ghost one man world conqueror vs spooky super ghost warshipKinda depends on what servant though, I mean jetman could just highjack a warship and others could just shit out an army.
>>42695944....alright fuck it, voting for this since it seems like Hamp is the only one we know with a pre-established positive bond with Shigure.
>>42695902Kaga's a lot more stable than others. The altercation happened because of heated words with what was historically one of her enemies, followed by us enabling another shipgirl to start a fight. Tell me you would be calm and reasonable if someone you didn't get along with started beating on you with a cane.
Why is every fucking jap ship a ticking time bomb basket case.These bitches need to learn to MAN UP.
>>42695770>Go into that tree yourself and talk her down. An Admiral leads from the front, and you can't expect the girl to trust anyone who won't risk their life for her.Trust is important.

>>42696016Hey, Lou. Out of curiosity, are you one of those 'REVENGE!' types of people, or are you content to let the Universe do the heavy lifting for you?

>>42696085Oh wow, just read her hourlies, too. She's crazy passive-aggressive, always mumbling under her breath about this and that.
>>42696117Ship spirit=no consequences for actionsNo exceptions.
>>42696090Hamp has had all of a day being human.He gets a pass for now.Also, Harder's a sub. And his socialization issues is mostly limited to girls (who surround him).
>>42696090Hamp's problems may not be ship related, I think it's more an issue of him being Planefag's salty-ass midwestern impression of a Masshole.
>>42696087By the time we go find someone Kongou's gonna be riding Goto like a horsey while drinking tea infront of the media with nothing on save a toga, top hat and a monocle.
Um… Isn't entirely possible that she recognizes that she is unlucky and when she says she's going to kill every one she's not talking about literally killing everyone through direct action, but rather that she's afraid that if she's around other people that her bad luck will cause them to meet a sticky end? In other words, have we completely misunderstood the situation?

>>42696120>but doesn't threaten to kill the admiralOnly going on a minor property damage through base, beating up Choukai and Chikuma, and who knows what else.
>>42696149Pffft, that couldn't possibly happen, anon.
Whats with all the people voting but not linking to the vote post?
>>42696145This has escalated a biiiiiiiiit beyond that.
>>42696149No, I think people understand that Shigure knows her luck-pire reputation.We can't seem to agree on how to help her out of her funk, though.
>>42696149No, she pretty much means to kill Kitakami, the corgi's, and us.
>>42696172They're trying to samefag as hard as they can.
>>42696145That choice was less a serious vote and more of me divesting myself from the situation before it inevitability goes pear-shaped.
>>42696120>Sammy the delinquent but doesn't threaten to kill the admiralWere we floating the idea of making her put down some of the corgis?Was that in this very same thread?
At this point... (One thing first, did Shoukaku tag along?) Everyone with Settle needs to make a coordinated takedown and prevent her from harming herself and everyone present. She is going to need therapy and emotional support. Alot of it.
>>42696166Choukai and Chikuma are assholes though
Hey planefag, is this next update the last one? Or should I not bother staying up for the end?
>>42696130GET BACK TO MAKING MORE IDOL SPINOFFS YOU CRAZY DIAMOND
Inb4 the having Kitakami drag her out choice results in Shigure getting scrapped/turning AbyssalI hope Planefag has a couple of super gulp cups ready for all the tears coming in.>>42696208Not quite, Choukai was pretty nice, dunno about chikuma, but I doubt she's Kaga grade bitch.
>>42696203Arizona just shot a couple of themprobably not fatally, but she shot them
>>42695770>Go into that tree yourself and talk her down. An Admiral leads from the front, and you can't expect the girl to trust anyone who won't risk their life for her.We know how she feels, kind of.
>>42696155Bruh. This whole base is one giant uniform regulation black hole. You know this just as well as i do. I know this was one of you nerds. You guys can ask the more experienced people for help. I promise.
>>42696210This update WAS the last one.NEXT TIME
>>42696168 I cannot get past the phrase "they all die". Now that has got to be a reference to her past. If she's afraid that she's a Jonah, then talking her down seems to be the best option. However, Settle has to recognize that the approach to a person who is afraid is entirely different from a person who is actually threatening violence. In other words, I think we might need to approach this one like a person threatening suicide, as opposed to a person threatening murder.
>>42696149Then she can't do shit to Settle, he's already had his ship blown to hell under him... in fact maybe that's what he needs to talk to her about.
>>42696203No most said no such thing but we did have 2-3 Edgelords going full force last thread.
>>42696218As if he'd kill her off this early.
>>42696214NO! YOU CAN'T MAKE ME. I AM MY OWN BIG BOSS
>>42696139Not even if they cause another ship spirit to go from ally to Abyssal?Or basically break something in her spirit to the point where she can't fight anymore?
>>42696231Alternately, it's a ship about to go Abyssal and sink literally every Yankee ship on the base.
>>42696208... What?Choukai and Chikuma are both nice.
>>42695770>Go into that tree yourself and talk her down. An Admiral leads from the front, and you can't expect the girl to trust anyone who won't risk their life for her.>>42696231No shit, Sherlock.
>>42696240depends on how dedicated he is to getting his readers' tears; in the worse case he'd fuel things so the story burns to the ground.
>>42696218Well canonically Chikuma is one of the nicer ships out there, so I'd have to really question that "she deserved it".
>>42696244What part of no exceptions do you not understand?
>>42696208Choukai was trying to stop Mogami and Sammy from fighting, after Sammy had provoked Mogami. Chikuma was just walking by minding her own business when she noticed what was going on then Sammy chased her off.How is that being an asshole?
>>42695770>>Go into that tree yourself and talk her down. An Admiral leads from the front, and you can't expect the girl to trust anyone who won't risk their life for her.Admirals don't but we do have to go on a limb to get the girl to trust us.
>>42696250Yes.Look at it. planefag hasn't posted under his name since the update. He hasn't even said he's done with the votes and gotten to writing. This was the last update of the night.
>>42696266>>42696256To Sammy, any ship bigger than her is an asshole that probably need to be punched.USN ships are not immune to this.
>>42696265You've never read a planefag quest, have you?
>>42696231I can't see that. It seems pretty obvious that Shigure means to kill Kitakami if she tries to pull Shigure from the tree.I honestly cannot understand how you can see it any other way.She isn't threatening suicide or thinking that her luck is going to get other people killed; she's been pushed too far and she's not going to get pushed or pulled anymore, and is now determined to kill anyone who tries.
>>42696231That is my thought right now. This is now an intervention
>>42696243YOU BROUGHT THIS ON YOURSELF MERCYOU GAVE US GIRLS THAT SURPASSED WAIFUSAND WE WANT MOREWE CRAVE MORE
>>42696276He says when he's done for the night, literally always.
>>42696249 Look, we've got the Arizona at our back. If we need to kill her, we can kill her. She knows that – she's well aware of what the result of a 14 inch round at point-blank range is going to be. This could very well be a suicide by cop kind of situation. So we're going to have to decide whether we want to play this thing safe (for us), or take the risk and hopefully save a girl. We need to make sure that we are the least threatening we can be (no guns) and then we need to tell her that we're not afraid, we need to talk about being a comrade and what that means – because the Japanese certainly haven't done a very good job of installing that particular value. We need to talk about not leaving people behind, even when they fuck up - hell, especially when they fuck up. I think we ought to take a chance here
>>42696304He says when he's done after the vote's finished. He doesn't always say it right after posting the update.
>>42696300I can't even remember when my horn was that small.
>>42696288This is the first time he's focusing on that more than ever due to that infamous Katya grave stunt someone drew in SW89.He's abandoned his usual rules for things (which included routelocking a girl without a vote, though said girl is winning at that point)

>>42696354It was all fun and shenanigans until there's a trail of blood and a girl about to murder some people after getting mauled by them. Oh, and Planefag and Hate both saying that these things could murder people and we'd have to clean up the murder scene for them.

>>42696668Yet again you disappoint me, autocorrect.
>>42696613>No explaination for how we thought that the Corgi issue wouldn't bite us in the assI thought that, as near-insubordinate and stereotypically MARINE that Hate was, that he'd get them into shenanigans but at least keep the Corgis from doing anything that would land a person in a hospital. Obviously, I was a fool to think that Hate could be depended upon.

You take a deep breath, examine the situation from all sides and conclude that it is, indeed, a gigantic stinking ball of shit. You have a star, now. You're promoted. Why are the balls still full-sized by the time they roll into your lap? You've already crossed underneath the branches before Arizona's slender hand seizes your wrist with an iron grip. You look back at her, matching her stern expression with one of your own. “Arizona, let me go.” She stares you down, her delicate face hardened against your pleas - perhaps literally face hardened now, given the steel in the grip crushing your wrist. She shakes her head firmly - once. “That's an *order,* Arizona.” She flinches as if slapped - and releases your wrist. You seize the lower boughs and swing your legs into the branches over your head before she can object, hissing in pain as the hole in your right thigh makes itself known. The weakness forces you to pull your torso after your legs with your arms, leaving you sweating and sans cover by the time you sit up in the boughs - - and find yourself staring down the rifling of Shigure's five-inch gun, her dark, empty eyes right behind it.“Leave.” “Can't.” “In pieces, you can,” Shigure says. “Leave, or I kill you.”
I can'tI don't evenhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?t=5&v=3m5qxZm_JqMaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
“Better me than you,” you reply. “I come out of this tree without you, I get court-martialed, I eat a bullet after I'm humiliated before the world.” “Like anyone needs *me,*” she hisses. “Just ask that gangrene b-b-bITCH below you, listen t-to her sneer a-t us-” “You can't be replaced,” you reply. “I can.” “SHUT UP!” she screams. “SHUT THE FUCK UP!” Her eyes are wild and her finger is twitching on a trigger you can't see - turrets don't exactly come equipped for one-handed wielding, after all. But you know you're millimeters away from riding a five-inch shell into hell. Part of you wants to snap, wants to scream, wants to tell her to fish or cut bait, piss or get off the pot, blow your head off or get out of the fucking tree - part of you just wants to slap her and scream till she makes up her fucking mind because you've been sitting in this tree for sixteen months and some mornings you wake up and- - and do your job. Always, your job. It's why you're here. You feel the words rise to your lips - the logic, the truth - and let them drop away again, unsaid. Somehow, staring down the barrel of a gun held by someone quite willing to use it, you just don't care anymore. The energy to balance on the tightrope just isn't there, much less the inclination. “Just do it,” you whisper - mouth, even. Her wild eyes barely twitch at this as you lock gazes. She sneers, or grimaces, *something,* but you just roll your shoulders. Why did you get into this fucking tree, anyway? Did you think she'd listen, in her state? Did you think a mere demonstration of selflessness would have her melting in your arms? You already stared down Kaga's arrow-shaft when you underestimated the live-wire under the innocent, youthful exterior - you just watched the fucking “cute” corgis maul her with a savagery you've scarce seen. Why?*Why*?Well, who fucking cares, now, what's she fucking WAITING on?
>>42696770What the fuck do you think happens to military K9 officers when their dog injures somebody you dipshit.Those are fucking You Ess Enn war assets.

>>42696825YepJust enjoy the ride now.
Quest finale right hereThat or we end up in the FUCKING hospital again
“*He* was like that,” Shigure says, her voice hot and trembling on the edge of madness. “S-so sensetive. S-ss-o h-h-hheroic.” Her grimace becomes a teeth-grinding snarl. “A-always w-w-with h-his b-b-bunc-c-unt n-next tt-to him l-like y-you, I kill you she kills ME, so what a-are you r-risking y-you Y-yankee CUNT? GOING TO MAKE SURE OF IT THIS TIME!?” Her voice seems to bash in your eardrums and vibrate in your diaphragm, but you just stare back into those wild, frantic eyes. “I DON'T CARE HOW SPECIAL I AM! I DON'T WANT TO BE SPECIAL!” You open your mouth to retort and she smashes the gun into your throat, shock shooting through your jaw as the muzzle chips a molar. Her finger twitches on the illusory trigger, her entire frame heaving with her ragged breaths. *“I DIDN'T WANT TO COME BACK! I WANTED TO STAY DEAD!” The gun is dragged from your mouth and pressed against her head, the air split apart by - - WRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!Shigure stares at you like you just sprouted tulips from your taint. And then the entire tree *shifts.*
>>42696825I really wish we had the time to call in Hamp dammit.
>>42696841OH GOD IS GODZILLA MOVING THE TREE
The sickening feel of acceleration hits your stomach all at once and you snatch at the trunk, hugging it as vertigo sends sheer instinctive terror surging through your system. Shigure screams, her hands snatching the trunk and dropping her gun as the entire goddamn tree goes over. It hits with a shock that flings you both into the tangled canopy, where you lie, stunned, contemplating the sunny summer sky.“Fuckers.” Looming into view above you is a massive, rough-looking man who's slinging a chainsaw the size of a medium machine gun; a blade which apparently sliced through the maple's modest trunk like it wasn't there. A dirty piece of masking tape on the engine housing identifies it as 'kshewwww whumwhumwhumwhum',” which you dizzly guess isn't elvish. Shigure's already staggering upright, weaponless - for the moment. The mechanic - Crab, you realize - spares you his poisonous look of disgust long enough to look up into the middle distance with an even more vile expression. “Fuck me *sideways*, who's *this* bitch?” Shigure turns to look over her shoulder, and there's a brief rusty-red blur in the vauge shape of a pipe wrench. Something CLANGS with metal-on-metal contact and Shigure drops like the proverbial sack of hammers. Crab drops the massive chainsaw and leans over, hands on his knees, to stare at you. “You.”
>>42696841 Dammit – I said she was suicidal !
>>42696828Yep, that butthurt when nobody reads or likes his shit anyway
>>42696860It just had to be you, CRAB!
>>42696860[x] KISS THAT MOTHERFUCKER WITH YOUR BROKEN MOLAR
>>42696841. *“I DIDN'T WANT TO COME BACK! I WANTED TO STAY DEAD!”Well. Fuck. I guess all that summoning finally backfired huh. Ya got one who hates it.
“Yo.”He holds up one hand to count off for you. “Fuck.” Index finger. “You.” Ring finger. “Very. Much.” He thinks. “Asshole,” he finishes, adding the thumb. “All... of this... *this,* he says, waving his hands at you like he's trying to waft away dogshit stench. Just... fuck you.” He bends down and comes up with the wrench and saw in either hand. “*Fuck* you.” He strides away towards his own vehicle, parked only a few feet away, hurls his tools in the back. He flips you the bird over the back of the battered motor pool SUV's seat and leans on the horn as he drives away, spraying you, Arizona and Kitakami with gravel as he peels out from the shoulder. You stagger upright to receive the steeliest look from Arizona you have ever received from anyone - Chief Machinists included. Kitakami slides her eyes from Arizona over to you, her eyebrows hitching a fraction of an inch as if saying, 'wew, lad.' Well, on the bright side - at least you're out of the tree.
>>42696860Crab to the rescue.
>>42696872Clearly you missed Hate going WITNESS ME on some japanese guards.
>>42696868And suicidal people are still dangerous -- especially when those people are shipgirls.Remember this for the next time it comes up.
>>42696894He gone, time for...not headpats.Do we really need Ghost's psych character for Shigure?
>>42696901But Crix didn't write that. Someone actually entertaining wrote that.
>>42696894question is who called him out to do that?
>>42696920My bet is on Kongo.
>>42696893INB4 NEXT TIME
I HATE TO SAY I TOLD YOU SO....BUT I TOLD YOU SO
Okay, NOW we are done for the night. I need to sit down and process just how badly anon fucked up tonight. Well, not that they really fucked up - it's in character, perfectly, almost too much so - something like this was bound to happen. A few of the possibilities had Shigure actually successfully blowing her brains out. So you managed to avoid that. Still, I thought tonight was going to be LOL KONGOU SHENANIGANS and... here we are.That's the strange thing about quests - no matter how much I fucking plan them, the best threads tend to just... happen. I'm gonna try to free up some time Friday for at least one thread, so we can get a bit further on Sunday.
>>42696918hehe hehe le admiral doge very random MEMES
Let's reflect for a moment… Several United States Navy ships just attacked an allied vessel in a friendly port - and that vessel is now certifiably suicidal. This should be fun to explain to the chief of navy operations.
>>42696920Crab's an easy motherfucker to read. "Hey, wanna chop down a fucking tree?" >Meh"There's a one star and a bitch in it. she's got a gun on him." > What tree nigga, WHAT TREE. simple fucking shit.
Man, I hate /tg/
So, in the future, are we going to try to solve serious fucking trauma with a pep talk and a hug?The answer should be no.But you'll do it again anyway, you fucking social rejects.[/spoile]
>>42696938Hit home Plane, hit home. Fucking hell.
>>42696952/tg/ loves the fact that you keep coming back to us.
>>42696754>inb4 massive derailing>>42696938Thanks for the run.
>>42696938Sounds like, when it came to Shigure, it could've been worse, but it could've been better kind of deal.Either way, it just seemed rather in-character for Settle to willingly do the mildly retarded option.
>>42696938>Still, I thought tonight was going to be LOL KONGOU SHENANIGANSHow were you expecting that when you were the one who made the Corgis maul Shigure and cause her to almost successfully kill herself?
>>42696938That's... actually expected, indeed.Thanks for the run chief. Any writeups?
Why didn't you just let her blow her head off Planefag?Not like it'd kill her.and it would have taught those "Must push button" anons a lesson.
>>42696966I'm wondering the same. How do the choices given stop this? I guess leaving her alone would have avoided it actually now that i typed this.
>>42696938>We're acting in characterSalt tides stemmed temporarily. I can accept this.
>>42696938>A few of the possibilities had Shigure actually successfully blowing her brains out.welp at least that's something>That's the strange thing about quests - no matter how much I fucking plan them, the best threads tend to just... happen. I'm gonna try to free up some time Friday for at least one thread, so we can get a bit further on Sunday.But this is fucking bullshit you should've expected something on this level when you sicced the corgis on Shigure whom you'd already built up as A Potential problem.
>>42696964>uncomfortable with flag rank>flag rank he received by getting most of a ship and her crew shot out from under himyea, it wasn't smart, but it was in character
>>42696938well anon focused on preventing them and in turn unleashing a far worse clusterfuck. Assuming our refusal to talk to Hate didn't play a rule in it. Given your tear drinking tendencies, it's hard to believe you didn't have it happen intentionally.Best thread? Some people might end up quitting as "the only way to win is not to play">>42696956>implying there was ever a way to suceed.>>42696966INDEED the moment that happened, the thread stopped being funny.>>42696979It's hard to believe he didn't plan it for TOTAL GLOBAL SATURATION (of tears)
>>42696975Agreed. I knew it might have ended but I thought this is what Settle would have done.As for the Corgis, we should have used the Pimp cane.
Hey Planefag, can you make a decision tree like you did last time we screwed up?
>>42696966 Once we got to the final vote, there wasn't much we could do. Settle was right, if we came out of that tree without her we would get court-martialed. We're probably going to get court-martialed anyway. We are in command, and that means we have total responsibility for everything that happens involving our personnel. Considering we hung quite a few Japanese officers after World War II for losing control of their men – I do not see how we get out of this. I think the only chance we have is if the ship girls insist that we remain in command – that might get us a free pass until after the war ... But our career in the military is over
>>42696938>Still, I thought tonight was going to be LOL KONGOU SHENANIGANS and... here we are.Bull fucking shit. You knew exactly where this was going to go as soon as you wrote that in there. You were going to have our bad decisions catch up to us sometime.You can say we earned this all you want, it's true. But don't piss on our faces and tell us it's raining.
>>42696973I suppose we could have stopped the Corgis when they were chasing the landscaper, or tried a more effective approach to stopping the Corgis (actual physical violence).But in the first case, we were considering the possibility of a massive media shitstorm versus previously embarrassing but ultimately harmless shenanigans, so why would we be expected to stop the Corgis?As for the second, those dogs were in their fit outs, judging how they were able to take Arizona's gunshots; hitting them with a cane wouldn't have stopped them.That and what good is a flag officer if his sailors won't listen to his orders?
>>42696938Soooooooo, in the hypothetical situation that we would've gotten to Hamp in time, how would've things have turned out?
>>42696941> le ebin maymaysSure, blow it off because you can't fucking deal with it.
>>42696841>“*He* was like that,” Shigure says, her voice hot and trembling on the edge of madness. “S-so sensetive. S-ss-o h-h-hheroic.” Her grimace becomes a teeth-grinding snarl. “A-always w-w-with h-his b-b-bunc-c-unt n-next tt-to him l-like y-youShe's talking about Goto here, I take it?
>>42696938Thanks for the run planefag! Story isn't ready yet. Maybe by the next time you run this sat it might be done.
>>42696941You see Crix, if you're dankposting because you've mellowed out and stopped hating fun, that's good, good for you mang.If you're still salty as fuck, that is also good.
>>42696938You really expected Kongou Shenanigans when you had a shipgirl the playerbase was trying to daughteru that already had psych problems get mauled by rabid PTCorgis?You might as well have dangled Sanya getting mind controlled in front of us again.
>>42697039Are you available on office hours? I need a replacement for my paper cutter.
>>42697018>We're probably going to get court-martialed anyway. We are in command, and that means we have total responsibility for everything that happens involving our personnel.>But our career in the military is over.>Hate literally destroys our career and gets us court-martialed because he's madIf that happens we're taking him down with us.
>>42696938So, uh, when do Settle and the hulls meet with some psychologists? Actually, does the USN have any policies for mandated therapy/counseling?I mean, thanks for running planefag. You write people with more weighty issues than the combined tonnage of the cumulative total (so, including the sunk vessels) of the USN during WW2.
Either way, there is going to be hell to pay, especially for the next the PT-Corgis. Especially those directly involved in attacking Shigure.Either way this has been one hulluva Clusterf#ck.
>>42697066You're allowed to swear on 4chan. Mom won't know.
>>42697071but what if mom is watching the thread?
>>42697039No, not waifufags. Daughterufags. They're worse, because playing pretend on an imageboard is literally the only way they'll be able to display any kind of fatherly affection in their pathetic lives.
Not going to lie, after Settle got the gun shoved in his face I figured tonight was going to end with Arizona shooting Shigure. While some of those journalists from earlier recorded it.I'd say I can't believe that 'climb the tree' won, but...nope, still can't believe it. Christ folks, this isn't SWQ. This is goddamn warships with PTSD. Pilot shenanigans aren't going to cut it.
>>42696979>But this is fucking bullshit you should've expected something on this level when you sicced the corgis on Shigure whom you'd already built up as A Potential problem.>>42696973>I guess leaving her alone would have avoided it actually now that i typed this.I literally offered anon a "FIRE INTO THE CEILING AND SHOUT" vote. Alongside the sane ones. In my experience, the insane one always wins, no matter how evenly you present the votes. But then anon was super sane and responsible...... until they weren't. But I can't even say it was a "bad" vote; it's the kind of thing that has already worked for Settle a few times - until he got into that tree, realized that this time, the Raw, Direct Admission wasn't going to work. That this time, the shipgirl would not be Moved By His Sympathetic Traumas. No. This time, she was just going to snap and fucking kill someone - maybe him, maybe herself, maybe manifest an ashcan and blow everyone in 40 feet into a fine red mist. Trusting ktkm to talk down a destroyer would've resulted in Shigure's head being reconfigured as a canoe. The triple takedown would've worked, but would've involved putting Arizona in the line of fire, which Settle is adverse to both in and out of character. And the choice they chose - well, it resulted in Crab just cutting Gordian's knot and walking away muttering about fucking drama whores.
>>42697060>>42693784 Oh… and I totally forgot that Arizona FIRED on and struck a friendly warship, or more than one. Shit, they won't need to court-martial us – we're going to spend the rest of our life filling out paperwork
>>42697066>self-censoringFuck off and lurk more.
What, you guys think that Planefag actually writes what he plans? If he's anything like me he has some vague idea of what could happen next and his fingers have a mind of their own.
I just spent the last 5 hours doing HW, WTF happened why is everyone sad
Is this the start of the long-awaited military prison arc?
>>42697066Spade and neuter those dogs?Though I imagine Arizona and later Shoukaku will give us hell later.
So, when Hate let Sammy take care of some of the Corgis, did he officially move them to under her command?Does anyone remember or know which PT's he gave her?>>42697018>Considering we hung quite a few Japanese officers after World War II for losing control of their menOh yeah, wasn't the Rape of Nanking one of them?IIRC, the general in charge gave orders to not kill the civilians, but the tribunal determined that he didn't do enough to actually implement those orders and had him executed.
>>42693572I think I'm in love.Well, more than I was before.Best Carolina truly is a best
>>42697101Honestly, this is the most fun I've had with the quest since the very beginning. Thank you for making something actually matter, even if it felt sort of contrived. This SoL shit was getting on my nerves.
>>42697101>Crab was the hero we deserve but not the hero we need............
>>42697081Then your mom is probably salt-proof and a pretty cool person.She won't mind if you swear.
>>42697101>The triple takedown would've worked, but would've involved putting Arizona in the line of fire, which Settle is adverse to both in and out of character.Thus proving Hate's point.Fucking hell, we should just put him and Crab in charge. We clearly can't be trusted.
>>42697101I'm pretty sure this isn't the first time anon has been super sane and responsible in the quest though. You might have to lay some better bait from here onwards if you wanna use that tactic.
>>42697101so using the pimp cane would have helped. Though how will this effect his mind set on these ship girls?
>>42697155DON'T YOU PUT THAT FUCKING EVIL ON ME.
>>42697058See>>42696971Even a Japanese destroyer can survive a single 5 inch shell striking the bridge.It'd put her in the hospital, it would traumatize Settle, and furthermore it'd make him realize that there are some things that he can do nothing to stop.Settle cannot ride in on his white horse and save all these girls from themselves. Goto realized that months ago, that's why he drinks.
>>42697012>well anon focused on preventing them and in turn unleashing a far worse clusterfuck. Assuming our refusal to talk to Hate didn't play a rule in it.Anon has consistently blown off almost every single "talk to Hate" vote ever presented to them, and I've made no secret that the man is a powder keg under incredible pressure, which has recently taken a violent turn for the worse. >Given your tear drinking tendencies, it's hard to believe you didn't have it happen intentionally.I've set up this scene from the very beginning of the quest - from the night that Settle first encountered Shigure treed by the goddamn Corgis. Anon's write-in was funny, so I went with it, but anon chose to let it ride at the time, which was reasonable enough. And now you're gonna cry foul because Settle finally put his foot into a livetrap that actually went off? >write as normal"Lol planefag will never kill a character">write this"Wow that was just intentionally mean i'mma quit" I dunno, man. I dunno. Can't please everyone, I guess. But on the balance? Shigure did nothing wrong - and I'd have killed her faster than Yuma and BearBint had the votes gone that way.
>>42696938>A few of the possibilities had Shigure actually successfully blowing her brains out.>After we cocked up stopping the corgis the only options with regard to Shigure were to leave her alone, wait for her to talk to kitakami, rush her with a battleship, or go talk to her ourselves>"Lel you didn't follow her so she blew her own bridge out." Yeah nah>Going ourselves means Shigure will be able to read a book on how stupid we were made out of that treeSo basically she woulda popped herself after Arizona tanked some shots on the way up or Kitacunti would have gotten impatient and acted like a bitch unintentionally fishing for a grey matter shower.
>>42697162SAYS THE GUY WHO LET THE CORGIS HUNT DOWN SHIGURE.
>>42697126 Perhaps the most famous example was the commander of the Japanese forces in the Philippines, the so-called poet general. No evidence was ever presented that he actually knew atrocities were occurring - but he still had command responsibility, and they most certainly still hung him
>>42697164>Settle cannot ride in on his white horse and save all these girls from themselves. Goto realized that months ago, that's why he drinks.The problem is that Settle will likely destroy himself trying to help them all anyway.
>>42697178WELL, MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE GONE TO TALK TO HIM ABOUT IWO JIMA, BITCH.NAAAAAAAAAAAAH GOTTA PLAY THE WAIFU GAME THAT'S MORE IMPORTANT
>>42697164It's the edge, anon.
>>42697162I wouldn't do it if I saw another way.I mean, tell me with a straight face that you think WE can be trusted with this.
>>42697019>Bull fucking shit. You knew exactly where this was going to go as soon as you wrote that in there. You were going to have our bad decisions catch up to us sometime.Sure, but I didn't know that it'd be tonight. Anon *Not* dogpiling more Kongou? Shit, I thought this would be the big comedic relief following the Bonin Islands stuff, but... no.No, it's all just going... downhill. Faster, and faster. I blame naka-chan.
>>42697176>>42697204You did good Plane, Hit close too home humans not shipgirls. But good. Sleep good plane, and Hopefully I'll catch next one.
>>42697176Ignore the bitching, it always happens when shit goes wrong. It won't hurt the quest one bit.>WQDT Was Right
>>42697196Better than I can. I'm just a shooter, that's it. That's all I want to be anyway. Just a fucking shooter.
>>42697181He's not a good example. Douglas MacArthur literally executed him for beating him. That was his only crime; Dugout Doug was just massively butthurt that he lost, so he had the only guy who pulled it off hanged for it.
>>42697171I know, right?
>>42697204Day 3, after the battle with Iowa and Oregon, was a bad day for Settle as well.Seems like after everyone's been shook up all these bad sentiments rise to the top.
>>42697204Actually, I find this situation rather interesting. I don't why people should be angry at the situation. We saved the girl and did our best. Settle did his job. What more can you ask? Though I wonder how Arizona and other shipgirls close to him will feel about his brush with death and his acceptance of it.
>>42697235PTSD ladies and gentsThat and pent-up pressure from not being able to do jack aside from commanding from the CIC.
>>42697176I'll be the first to admit that I like Shigure a great deal, but I'll also happily admit that this was a badly-needed lesson. We're not some invincible superhero that has A Solution For Everyone's Problems, and this would do well to pound that lesson in.
>>42697204Well done. Well fucking done. Played like a fucking fiddle-and we only find out until months later
>>42697176To be honest I feel like sometimes there's just too much to choose properly. Super Important Decisions show up once and then melt away like tears in the rain and then when there's time they don't show up again. Or the opportunity shows up, anon makes a move for possibly taking it, then BAM more shenanigans that steal our attention.That's good for keeping things lively, yeah, I totally understand, but it's kinda unfair to hoist this entirely on us. This quest is twice a week at best and pretty damn hectic, it's easy to forget what's going on and what we left pending last time.
>>42697193For the record, I'm voting against the Waifu game. I was voting for talking to Hamp about adjusting to the new time and place, last thread. Closest I've gotten to waifuing was suggesting we throw a party for all the girls to relieve some of the tension with the "we're not welcome here" angst.And I HAVE also been advocating Willie Dee as a best, but not a waifu. that's different.
>>42697046I hate bad wrongfun which is probably what you enjoy. I'm salty because I have standards, unlike many here.
>>42697229 Dude, they burnt American POWs to death by pouring gasoline into their air raid shelters rather then let them get recaptured. And that is not even counting the Batan death march and everything in between ... Also, MacArthur was not on the tribunal the tried war criminals
>>42697222Fair enoughWe'll see what we come up with.
>>42697249Except this still proves nothing. planefag can easily reverse this, just like he did after the Kaga incident.I like the idea though.
>>42697176For the record, I'm pretty happy with this thread. It's voters being stupid that pisses me off. If the votes we made weren't a spontaneous case of the dumb, but a consistent IC decision that just so happend to have a lovely beartrap placed in the way, that's great and I look forward to next thread.
>>42696938>Friday>SundayWhat, uh, happened to Saturday? I barely have an hour to participate on Wednesdays as it is, and Fridays are even worse for me. planefag pls
>>42697249But Settle will still put his foot on that beartrap though. We might have technically leaned a lesson but Settle hasn't and he'll still try to reach out because he thinks he's replaceable and their not.
>>42697259you can't post that on a Christian Singaporean puppet show board
>>42697270>>42697266What's enlightening is that the tree incident wasn't a one-off deal.Imagine what other minor incidents actually have far-encompassing consequences in future threads.
So since we just got done listening to the ranting of a crazy shipgirl, how about a short writefaggotry about the ranting of a crazy shipgirl?I can hear them in my head.The Voices. The little creatures that have harassed me since my awakening. Telling me to eat, telling me to sleep, telling me to accept my weakness.Why are they here? I have no need for crew now, the ship moves… no, I move of my own will. That is who I am, the guns and boilers and hull, not this body in those traitor’s guise.Heh.What bitter irony. My hull is stronger than ever, steel replaced with glittering black, while I am trapped in this prison of flesh and blood. Attempting to break free is pointless. Clawing at the cage and the rags that cover it only sees the wounds mirrored, rending my decks and guns, leaving me weakened.And then the drone of voices redoubles—telling me to eat, to rest, to regain my strength…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDO8Y-v6tiMHmm?What are you? Another merchant who thinks running will change their fate? Or have the cowards finally decided to fight back? No, I shouldn’t get my hopes up. After all my sisters they sent to the breakers, I doubt they have any ships left to face me.Well if they insist on letting me kill them, who am I to deny their kindness? Hard over port…
>>42696893>He holds up one hand to count off for you. “Fuck.” Index finger. “You.” Ring finger. “Very. Much.” He thinks. “Asshole,” he finishes, adding the thumb. “All... of this... *this,* he says, waving his hands at you like he's trying to waft away dogshit stench. Just... fuck you.” He bends down and comes up with the wrench and saw in either hand. “*Fuck* you.” He strides away towards his own vehicle, parked only a few feet away, hurls his tools in the back. He flips you the birdCan't he get in huge trouble for that?
>>42697282It's a cool idea, but unless something changes because of those tiny butterfly flaps, it's just like a Bioware game; namechecking your choices without actually changing anything because of it.We'll see which it is Friday I guess.
>>42697270I don't quite understand what you mean. So far it has been in character.
OK, I have a rather concerning thought – on top of a lot of other concern and thoughts. When Arizona fired on the corgis, wouldn't everyone in that press conference have heard the shots? Because if that's the case, but everything that just happened got witnessed by half the Japanese press corps - unless you're really telling me they just sat in the briefing room when gunfire happened right outside. That colt single action is about as loud as a cannon
>>42697259Okay good. As glad as I am to see people pull the shafts out of their asses so they can start impromptu lightsaber fights with people, I really do enjoy the salt more.
>>42697292He just saved our asses dude.
>>42697297Its only in character because Anon is fucking stupid.
>>42697292Seriously?After what we just went through, THAT'S what you're focusing on? Calling a dumbass officer a dumbass?Wow
>>42697131>Honestly, this is the most fun I've had with the quest since the very beginning. Thank you for making something actually matter, even if it felt sort of contrived. This SoL shit was getting on my nerves.inorite>>42697155>Thus proving Hate's point.Yep. Of course Hate's projecting like a motherfucker himself, but nigga ain't blind, no sir. >>42697193geewhiz eh?>>42697162No prob LT, have you bought your bars from the PX yet? >>42697235Also this. Sometimes bad shit happens, and there's not a fucking thing anon can do about it, nor Settle. That's exactly what Settle was thinking in the tree, staring down the gun barrel - sometimes, there's just no magic win button, no easy fix. Why he got into that tree anyways is an important part of his personality, namely->>42697245>Settle did his job. What more can you ask?THIS. THIS. THIS GUY GETS IT. THIS. Sometimes doing your job is a dirty, ugly task. >That's good for keeping things lively, yeah, I totally understand, but it's kinda unfair to hoist this entirely on us. Not "all of you," just... just the salty ones out there should understand that I harbor my fucks very carefully, and I've seen how fast some anons can turn on a dime from voting for the sweetest waifuing to things like "force Sammy to kill her own pet dogs." If that write-up ever actually won I'd write Sammy going abyssal and slaughtering half the base and laugh myself sick doing it, too. Because what the fuck, people. Those people? They are not worthy of most honorable fuck. They can never pass The Trials.
>>42697263And the US did just as bad during the New Guinea campaign. We didn't *take* POWs, and we had absolutely no problem with machine-gunning and bombing men in the water until none were left. Don't pretend the Army's hands were lily-white here.And while he wasn't on the tribunal, he WAS the new emperor in occupied Japan and ruled it as such. He decided how the courts ruled. If he wanted you to be let off, he let you off. If he wanted a general executed for doing the same things he himself did, that general swung.
>>42697190Exactly my point.
>>42697259Dude are you really going to be so shitty as to call navyfag's writefaggotry bad wrongfun that only anons without standards will enjoy just because he was under the impression it'd be okay to use Shiranui for shenanigans?Like, it's not even YOUR fucking OC donut steel, why do you fucking care so much.
>>42697035There's no way she isn't, assuming the 'bun cunt' is Kongou
>>42697276Shit, did I say sunday? I meant saturday. Sunday threads suck dicks becuase you gotta get up monday, I hate inflicting those and avoid them.
>>42697297Going up into the tree was a stupid decision. Nobody's arguing that. But as long as it meshes well with that planefag expects from Settle, I can accept it as a "good" vote.
>>42697315I really don't see what was wrong right now. What happen, happened and no one died. That;s the most important thing,
Is there gonna be writefaggotry?I need to catch up on it.And by that I mean read it all.
OH, BEFORE I FORGET! Central wrote the next installment of his writefaggotry, "Battle of Portsmouth!" http://pastebin.com/u/_CentralAlso, who's KTKM do you like better, mine or Crix's?
>>42697318>Because what the fuck, people. Those people? They are not worthy of most honorable fuck. They can never pass The Trials.sadly there will still be more of them...
>>42697101>The triple takedown would've worked, but would've involved putting Arizona in the line of fire, which Settle is adverse to both in and out of character.>maybe him, maybe herself, maybe manifest an ashcan and blow everyone in 40 feet into a fine red mist. I wasn't around for that vote, catching up now, but you know what I see when I see shigure cornered by Arizona?A Long Lance that achieves roughly the same thing, because escalating to battleship armor will draw that kind of response
>>42697319 Not my point – I'm simply saying that there is no way that the United States could look the other way when one of its officers directly led to a Japanese ship being damaged, and it certainly won't let us foist I t off on a junior officer – when we literally executed Japanese officers who tried to blame bad things on their subordinates. Ultimately, Settle is a hell of a lot more expendable that our alliance with Japan
>>42697035(Yes, yes she was)
>>42697376Hey PF, sent you my writeup this morning for approval. Do I need to fix stuff in it?
>>42697204The reality of war: things inevitably gets worse.Just like Russia.
>>42697336Maybe? but it made sense at the time least for Settle. It was basically picking the lesser of the evils.
>>42697318>Not "all of you," just... just the salty ones out there should understand that I harbor my fucks very carefully, and I've seen how fast some anons can turn on a dime from voting for the sweetest waifuing to things like "force Sammy to kill her own pet dogs." If that write-up ever actually won I'd write Sammy going abyssal and slaughtering half the base and laugh myself sick doing it, too. Because what the fuck, people. Those people? They are not worthy of most honorable fuck. They can never pass The Trials.See this is where having usernames helps. At least then you can keep a measure of who is a stupid fuck when voting. :^)Seriously now, I honestly don't think that's the problem at all (it's very unlikely such absurd options would ever reach majority). What I'm talking about is that you know perfectly well that, between the 3+ days between sessions and the shifting voters, anon has a bad case of ADHD and you often lay down sweet sweet bait to derail us because all it takes is for at least a quarter of the votes to have just logged in and see the shiny new vote to fuck up an otherwise sensible decision.Like, maybe not EVERY choice has to make anon choose between waifu and fixing problems? Please?
>>42697364>who's KTKM do you like betterThey're different?
>>42697364Mellow because mellow is always better than mellow because apathetic cuntyness.We've seen like 3 lings of your GODDESS OF CRIT thou.
>>42697364I haven't seen enough of yours to really tell much difference yet, though she seems a bit more personable.
OK, now that I've had a few minutes to digest – here's my thought. As I said earlier, we were walking into a suicide\suicide by cop situation. The best outcome we could hope for is all of the parties left that situational live, giving us an opportunity to fix it later. I noted in a previous post that in order to do that we would have to personally risk our life in the hopes that we could save the life Of our shipgirl in the tree. We made that choice, as any US Navy officer would've made under those circumstances, and the fact is we are all still alive with a chance to fix this cluster fuck. That's not a win, but it sure as hell is not a loss either
>>42697399>Like, maybe not EVERY choice has to make anon choose between waifu and fixing problems? Please?Not his problem. If you want anon to stop being distracted by the shiny, start taking notes and reminding them.
>>42697326Sure.All I wanted was a heads up. Unfortunately there was failure of communication and it never happened. Much like the military.>>42697352Nope. Going to AWA.
>>42697319>And the US did just as bad during the New Guinea campaign. We didn't *take* POWs, and we had absolutely no problem with machine-gunning and bombing men in the water until none were left. Don't pretend the Army's hands were lily-white here.Lemme tell you a story my uncle related to me about his time on a destroyer in the Pacific, in 44-45. One day, they shoot down a kamikaze pilot attacking them. He ditches, gets in the water, and starts waving for help. So they send out a whaleboat to pick him up. He draws a knife and tries to murder the men sent to save his life, so they kick his ass and dump him in the brig. A few days later, another kamakazie pilot is nailed and manages to ditch. He's in the water, he waves at them. The captain comes over the loudspeaker and says "Somebody help that son-of-a-bitch," and they help him out with a long burst from the 20 mike mike. Honestly? If I was in the New Guinea campaign, I'd kill every one of the fanatical insane motherfuckers too. To take prisoners, you need people willing to surrender. And we knew plenty of what the Japanese were doing to their prisoners at that point. It's easy to be high-handed and holy-minded 70 years after the fact as we nurse our beers in our bedrooms and shitpost on 4chan, but in the context of the age, let's remember who started that downward slide into mutual brutality, eh?
>>42697399That limits the paths, though.It's not very dynamic storytelling if you go for Black-or-White options only.
>>42697364Yours seems to be a bit more chill but it's not like we've seen enough of her to know.
>>42697257Yeah. Remember, Hornet wanted to talk to us after this battle!Just like we had been meaning to talk to her for actual months, at one point.It's not good or bad, it's just the nature of the medium, you just gotta have everybody on all sides understanding that
>>42697364As I've yet to read most things it defaults to yours
>>42697318>"force Sammy to kill her own pet dogs."That was in response to "if Sammy ordered her dogs to attack Shigure, and they disobeyed an order from an admiral to instead maul her".We euthanize dogs who do that, you know. But they would have gotten off with no jail time even if Shigure had blown her brains out, right?Because at that point Settle would be court-martialed and the dogs simply reassigned.
>>42697431The total diplomatic disaster that would cause would overshadow everything else though.
>>42697417You try getting retards to stop voting the instant an update goes up with "whatever feels right" and tuning out until the next update. It's not easy.
>>42697335Ah, nice. Still sad for friday but oh well, quest doesn't revolve around me
>>42697417Bro be realistic this is a goddamn image board and the votes are a fucking flood.In fact sometimes people HAVE done that, but then votes get closed before sanity sets in. I remember one time I and others actually called PF out because he called votes before the discussion had even died down. And that was on a vote WERE going in the sane direction!>>42697421That's why I didn't say it had to be always.
>>42697417That does not work for shit without delayed votes, ie 10 minutes to discuss vote options BEFORE you can start to vote.
>>42697420>Honestly? If I was in the New Guinea campaign, I'd kill every one of the fanatical insane motherfuckers too. To take prisoners, you need people willing to surrender. And we knew plenty of what the Japanese were doing to their prisoners at that point. It's easy to be high-handed and holy-minded 70 years after the fact as we nurse our beers in our bedrooms and shitpost on 4chan, but in the context of the age, let's remember who started that downward slide into mutual brutality, eh?I never said they weren't also doing it or that the US was worse. My whole deal was whatever justifications that were given at his trial, General Homma was shot for the crime of defeating Douglas MacArthur on the field of battle.Especially since he was literally the only general in the IJA that didn't tolerate his troops raping their way through Asia. He kept getting reassigned because of that.
>>42697419Maybe if you didn't cuss out and snidely attack everyone who isn't you or Kota I'd like you more
>>42697431The guy suggesting we force Hate to old yeller his own charges was just as fucked up, really. It's kind of neat, though, in a way - for everyone that screams BAAW ALL QUESTERS ON /TG/ ARE PUSSY WAIFUFAGS LOOKING TO ROLL IN FLUFFBALLS AND PUSSY, there's somebody like that with a mean streak a mile wide just waiting to come out.And that's good, because Settle isn't nearly as nice a guy as anon's voters have had him appear for most of the quest. Anon has molded him into very much what I saw in him when I first started writing him - responsible, controlled, haunted - but with something else in him, something that slips out every now and then when he can't resist - like how he almost suffocated that pimp to death on the train.
>>42697420The survivors of Taffy 3 straight-up preferred horrible death by exposure and shark to the possibility of getting taken prisoner
>>42697465*and that was on a vote that actually WAS going in a sane directionfuck I can't type
>>42697409I considered it a win, because their is hope and opportunity in this.However, Hate is right to an extent about being too close to the girls. How Goto is fucked trying to take care of all of them but only resorts to just drinking in order not to get fucked over. Settle doesn't have that break in him, he'll reach out to help them even if it kills him. I think he wants them to,
>>42697420>you need people willing to surrender.This is relevant in modern times.
>>42697420Sooooo, planefag, just curious, how would've things have turned out if Hamp was in our position?
Ironically, we simply saw the corgis is nothing more than dogs in the moment we sycced them on Shiguire. That's exactly the same mistake that those outside of our group had been making about the ship girls themselves. In other words, if we had seen them as suicidal little PT boats. Rather than dogs, we would never of made that mistake. I am just as guilty as the rest of us in making that mistake – but it does prove the point that we have to remember that the people we're dealing with are ships with a lot of memories crammed into the bodies of girls. We ought not to treat them like pieces of hardware, we can't just treat them like plane old girls either. We let ourselves get distracted by what we wrote off as cute puppies. we paid for it. Let's remember that for next time.
>>42697419Yeah sure and that's why you were single-handedly driving the Sifto Salt Mine out of business.
>>42697445I don't even bother to vote half the time or bother with write-ins as it gets drowned out in the mad rush. Time it's thought up and typed, nobody cares.
>>42697504??? last time I checked I made like maybe 2 posts tops about the subject
