So far, your day has gone to form - woke up with a hysterical kid in your room, witnessed Hate In Arachnid Clad, gave Kongou romantic advice of incredibly dubious value, got your bell rung by an emotionally distraught shipgirl (again) and swore an oath you probably can't keep (again.) Compared to all that, the sight of Hornet's dusky cheeks glowing as she bends rebar with her bare fucking hands doesn't faze you one bit. You scratch your jaw discreetly to cover the motion of checking the headset's controls with your fingertip. Then you lean in close to Hornet, who's wide, empty eyes are staring at her rusty iron rebar “dreamcatcher.” too distant to notice your approach.“Someone's got a cruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuush,” you drawl quietly. Hornet FLINGS her mangled metal at the ground as she snaps to attention so abruptly that her hairfeather keeps quivering a second after she's gone dead still. “Who,” she says flatly to the water. You let the shit-eating grin blossom on your face. “You.”
YOU USED THAT TITLE ALREADY
Hornet's faceglow defies easy description now; seeming to radiate luminance like the inexplicably intrinsic glow of blackbody radiation (another metaphor the PR people would have your star for voicing, natch.) She covers her face with both hands, then settles for closing her eyes and charging you blindly, hands out front. You sidestep and hook her ankle foot with your toe, sending her hopping into the shallows on one foot, arms windmilling wildly for balance. She teeters percariously for a few seconds before finally going in with a long, high-pitched EEEEEEE of alarm that probably woke up a few corgis across the base before it's silenced by the anticlimactic “sploot” of her slender body slipping beneath the water. She surfaces a moment later, raven-black hair glistening beautifully in the summer sun as she sputters and spits in your general direction. “WHAT WAS THAT FOR?” “You tried to push me in!” you observe reasonably. “Y-Y-YOOOOOU!” she howls, dashing the water at you with her fist. “You what?”“YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING!” she says, kneeling in the shallows, her hairfeather drooping sadly as it sheds water. “WH-WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT WOMEN COULD FIT IN MY MOSSICAN WITH ROOM LEFT OVER FOR SAMMY'S DISPLACEMENT!”“Oh?” you ask. “And you'd know that ho-”“Hate,” she says primly, crossing her arms over her chest, “told me *all about* the Deployment Party you two had before we shipped out!” You narrow your eyes at her. “Did he, now.” “Yes!” she says, turning her chin to one side, eyes closed, face still aglow. “How some honey was making eyes at you and you told her to take a long walk off a short pier-” “She was wearing a goddamn press badge-” “-you *groped* her-” “-AND FOUND THE WIRE-”“-and just walked away with her panting like a- like she was in season,” she states, hastily amending Hate's account.
“I didn't need a disorderly conduct charge on my record the DAY before shipping to Yokosuka-”“How is it disorderly? You're single - AND NO WONDER!” She splashes some water at you and pouts. “Well, I'll take a page out of your book,” you state. You pluck a small memo pad from your breast pocket and apply your nice pen. “To get women - stand on pier and bend pieces of metal together while they do something else.” “DREAMCATCHER!” she wails, still kneeling waist-deep in the water. “IT'S. MY. DAMN. CULTURE!” “If seething with silent jealousy from the sidelines is your culture, then that makes me a fucking WAR CHIEF!” you shout back. “Just go talk to him already!” “W-why d-d-don't you g-g-o talk to ARIZONA?” she retorts.“FRATRENIZATION!” you retort triumphantly. “AND FUCK HATE FOR FEEDING YOU THAT LINE!” “Well I'm - I - mean - he could outrank-” “HAW!” “W-well h-he was a-attached as my e-escort,” she sputters, her blush intensifying again. “Technically, uh, oh hell.” She simmers quietly in the water, saying no more. “You done?”“Mmmm.” She jabs her small hand out. “Help me out.” You take her hand in your big mitt. She immediately throws her whole weight backwards, but despite the strength in her lean body she can't budge you an inch.“That's the oldest one in the book, kiddo.” She tugs and wrestles at your arm for a few more seconds before giving up with a sigh - she really *can't* summon her Outfit at the moment. “Why are you doing this!?” she wails.You chuckle. “It's all over your face. He'll find out sooner or later.”Hornet's gaze falls. “So why sho-”“Because you're not a shrinking violet, damn it. He should see you on your terms, not as Miss Stutter McBlushy.”“I'm not Irish!” she retorts, sounding slightly offended. “I don't even-”“Oh lord,” you say, “just ask him out already!”
Hornet sniffs. “Get me out of the water, already!” You pull her up. She trips over the concrete curb of the dockside and lands against your shoulder -“-that's what SHE said,” a tinny voice announces in your ear. Hornet freezes solid. “Wh-wha-”“Dammit, I did it wrong,” Hamp's merry voice sings on, plainly audible to Hornet, not five inches from your dislodged headset. “Someone says something and you say 'that's what she said' and it adds innuendo, right? But you, uh, actually did say that. Couldn't come up with a drydock joke in time. Strip you down for retfit or something.” Hornet makes a tiny mewling gurgle like a kitten being waterboarded. “Yeah, Skipper's mic is on,” Hamp says. “Have you ever heard synchronized giggling?” On cue, some drifts over his own mic. “I'm staaaaarting to see why everyone says they make the best scary movies,” he says apprehensively. Hornet turns horrified eyes onto you. [ ] Deny everything - you just threw a hand grenade in a Semtex house, all things considered.

You meet Hornet's gaze steadily, standing straight and tall. Let no man say after this day that you ever shirked your duty. “I regret NOTHING,” you say defiantly. Hornet makes a sound somewhere between a war-whoop and a growl as she tackles you, her arms wrapping around you tightly before heaving... and lifting you an inch off the ground. She huffs and puffs and draws in more air, and manages to get you two inches this time. “My god,” Hamp breathes through the radio, “STANDING position!?” With a final triumphant cry Hornet pitches over backwards - and then, quite suddenly, you're airborne. You have a few seconds to appreciate the wind ruffling your crisp working khaki before you arc towards the water and impact with a spectacular splash.

As you sink towards the sandy bottom, it occurs to you that a damaged boiler can't build much steam, or keep it long, but if you're stupid enough to stand around and let them get a draft up, well - ! You'll find yourself here, slowly settling against the bottom like a scuttled ship, watching your hat float towards the surface. You could float yourself, but you have a mental image of Hornet lofting a few of those rebar lengths like lances and keep your muscles tense to stay right where the fuck you are. It's nice down here, and cool. When's the last time you went swimming? Just put on some drunks and jumped in?

It's Hamp's...prepare for yaoi.
>>43955778I go for quasi-BC configurations, fast B with big main armament and lower-than-average armor (9 belt, 2,5 deck, etc.). Problem being, they tend to not hit anything and be big fat targets for the other CAs and Bs.Weirdly enough, I tried an almost identical config for a CA with even less armor and a bit faster, and it works wonders.

>>43955963Because she's an "undersea cruiser".

>>43955895Crix has issues, certainly. But it's a little insulting to claim to play his character and then only reference a single meme from 5 sessions ago.
>>43955948>inb4 the lifebelt is thrown by Ari
>>43955980Naka and Hate and Nettle are basically a classical chorus
>>43955997Nah, Settle is Monitor.Hate is actually Merrimack
>>43955813I am not sure if I got that reference.
>>43955997No Settle YOU ARE THE SHIPSLUT!
>>43955907>I used this underarmored heavy cruiser against battleships and got fucked for my trouble!PAGING JELLICOEBeen playing that the past day or two and I find myself loving BCs, which I call Big Cruisers, and use them as such - big cruisers. Ironically in the predread age they were literally built as small battleships and weren't much faster than them, and yet even then using them against battleships is just a bad idea. Unless you can sneak up on them at night, of course.
>>43956026It all makes sense.
>>43955997>Guys this may be Crazy but i have a Theory.>Hornet had a hard time lifting us, >We would rather be out on the front lines>Have very few memories>WE ARE HIGGINS>Which is why Higgins "Has not come back"Fuckin, no.

>>43955838That would be adorable.
>>43955944Even better - the same face he has on in that pic of him driving the golf cart with Harder shooting at planes in the back
>>43956028Shimakaze doesn't have turrets on her rig like the rest of the girls do. Instead, they are their own semi-ambulatory entities that quite frankly look completely retarded. They happen to have a life ring at the bottom.
>>43955907I'm not too sure, but i tend to have a lot of luck going with about a 12 inch belt and whatever i have left in tonnage put into guns, with them tending towards 21-23 knots. It may also have something to do with classing, you can choose BC class off the bat, and doing so may help its dodge rolls (somehow?) but im not positive on it.
>>43956050>implying you wouldn't a YamatoDon't lie to yourself Lt.

>>43956198Must never of noticed the popups for them then, but im usually rolling them off their blocks by 1905-1910 without focusing research on hull design.

I might be able to avoid the Great War, if I really try... Or bring it to a swift end.

>>43956613holy shit pixel
>>43956619Old boat doesn't float....
>>43956543The French Republic's insistence on not being reliant on foreign support explains it. They refused to rely on the US Navy for Carrier support, so they built their own at great cost. The British government has long abandoned the stubborn pride of the French. Which is why they accepted lacking true (Nuclear) Carriers for so long.Politics and national pride.
>>43956638This is true sadly, they're getting her superstructure up to snuff for dry berthing. Though I'd like to think shes floating at the moment since shes in a bunch of water.
>>43956613A fine southern dish.

For a few heartbeats you consider holding your breath just a little longer and lunging at the first girl to come to your aid. The first time your shippies tried to haze the new butterbar by sending you after your “dropped keys” you swam to the bottom and stayed there till all manner of debris and panicking lads already imagining their court martial rained upon the ocean in search of your presumably lifeless body. Your unusual endurance has often proved useful like that. But you're not a butterbar anymore. You let the playful impulse drop to the seafloor and kick your way towards the life preserver - at least you won't have to swim back. You grab the lifering and burst into the clean air, finding yourself staring into darkhollow holesthat fucking blink

You squeeze your eyes shut and open them just in time to see the holes *close* and *open,* unblemished steel armor plate rolling down, then up. And then you see the third abberation, the dark line, that bends into a semicircle, like a black void invoked in the steel of the turret face itse- face- thrashing away from it as it MOVES it fucking MOVES, guns flailing as water hits its fucking *face,* that sketched-on smile and bottomless blinking pits of eyes sinking into the steel and taking tangible form as you watch; hot-rolled steel bending and flexing under the motion as much as its able, growing more pliable by the moment as you stare, and when next it blinks its metallic lids unshutter two white soft fleshy - - smashing through the water, wet clothes dragging you back as you strike out with all your strength in a breaststroke, the sound of motion in the water behind, the bullish burble of a round shape plowing through the water as it chases it's fucking chasing you - - under, it can't go UNDER, pulling with all your might for the sandy bottom ten feet down, skimming the floor as your vision begins to blur. Don't look back, you don't look back, just swim, the face the eyes the blue cerulean fire flaring in the darkness closing over your vision once more, the alien and the artificial, steel and flesh melting into black carapaces; hulls twisted and warped into monstrous grasping hands, everything wrong, everything *wicked,* behind you, behind you BEHIND YOU - [ ] Fight[ ] Flee

>posts getting shorter and shorter>threads getting shorter>more time between posts>art becoming less frequent>writefags becoming less frequentWe're on the downswing here folks, this is probably going to be dead before the New Year.
>>43957429Planefag,I think you need to get your schedule a bit more in order. It'd be better to have a 5-6 hour thread with 8 or more posts once a week (or even once every two weeks) than the current situation.
>>43957625>I have standards.
>>43957582Some remain. Mostly the older generations.When I obtain a teaching position, I'll shock and awe my students by going "Powerpoint? No, you get to pay attention to what I say instead.">>43957642Pessimism doesn't help. It demoralizes everyone, including the author.
>>43957625You should write about Chunnimomboat in her summer outfit.
>>43957666its time for this to die anyways, its been going to shit for months
>>43957666When the author has already failed to finish two other popular quests, it gets pretty hard to rid people of their pessimistic expectations.It is what it is.
>>43957666You're making me feel even older Bentus! Also, HA! SUCK IT NUB STUDENTS! I kinda do that to my staff nowadays(fuck you spell check its a word), they adjust fairly quickly but regardless it is entertaining.
>>43957712More chunnibote is always a positive
>>43957666The author actively fuels the pessimism by acting like an asshole and pretending it's all in good fun, until suddenly it isn't fun and he gets all butthurt and disappears for months when he can't handle the shitstorm he himself has created. He did it with AWiY, he did it with SWQ, and he did it again with KCQ.
>>43957712>>43957761The chunni and her sister is on my list.
>>43957715>>43957716>>43957768I'll try to remain optimistic for all of us, then. >>43957736I'm sorry for that.

>>43957768Planefag has nasty tendency to overwork himself and burn out. He just wants to give everyone everything they want, and make everyone happy. But no one person can do that, and when he fails he gets discouraged and runs off.
>>43957822>kota pops into a quest he doesn't read just because he is somehow mentioned in it

RE: Writefags dyingWe're not all dead (yet). I can't speak for anyone else, really, but between my work schedule kicking up before the holidays start and a horrid case of writefaggers' block; I haven't been able to slap out anything of quality recently. I hope to get one or two new 'bins done before this particular Settle's Day(tm) is over.
>>43957818I could toss her in, But I don't have any plans for her yet. >>43957832Well, I learned a lot from my very first one I posted. Perhaps the future ones I could get into as a writer. These are more challenging than I realized.
>>43957633There is also this one, and some time to make coffee one I didn't save.
>>43957929That NavyFag, I can agree with.
Writefags should just do a mini CYOA, shit's easy and random
>>43957947>xean outlet for every plug, a plug for every outlet, right kotapet

>>43957968This amuses me... now where is that fucking baby alligator picture when you need it?
>>43957988busy working on a really, really big project, can't. Maybe over the weekend? Probably not though.
>>43957876Believe it or not, he does. That's why he keeps running these 2 hour long threads that go nowhere when he should just say "Fuck it, I'm tired tonight and I'll get to it another day"
>>43958001I...what?>>43958017http://ask.fm/planefag/answer/132419886304>>43958049Bah, you could just do one for shits and giggles after thread. Don't even think about where it's going, just be the keyboard.
>>43958055So his purposeful trolling of readers with waifu drama is all just part of "giving people what they want", I seeyou don't have to shill for him any further, he's not even reading the thread.
No bully the fap angel
>>43957929What Navy said. I'll have a Deutsch writeup by Saturday, possibly two. Depends on how busy the next few days are/if there's a thread then.
>>43957429Assuming you possibly read this in the morning:Do you follow the official Touhou mangas? Wild and Horned Hermet and Forbidden Scrollery?Do they give you IDEAS for AWiY?
>>43958162He literally asks for it so he can whineblg about it later on his Ask or at the end of another thread he cuts out on early.
>>43958124Based on how vehemently people defend the trolling, it seems that way
>>43958124Again, he can't give everyone what they want. I like the waifu "trolling", and I suspect a majority of the readers here think likewise.And really, if you don't want waifus you really need to reconsider why you came to the quest. Kancolle is literally built around the concept.
>>43958231Strike Witches was built for Fanservice and Waifus and that's not why they came for SWQ. Deme's kinda about turning shit on its head a bit while secretly embracing parts of it
>>43958231I came here for the naval combat, abyssal mystery aspects and planefag-brand 'cute girls with PTSD', personally. Though I don't mind the waifu shit
>>43957354MAYBE! Milch Cows are what the Germans called supply u-boats that were used to extend the operational range of other u-boats.They were known for having big fuel tanks.
>>43956610Not completely true. We have 7. Texas could NEVER be returned to service. She was extremely poorly cared for in the 60s and 70s. Most of the interior is off limits cause its nothing but sharp-edged rust piles. Her hull is so weak we can't risk moving her to a shipyard for the repairs she needs - even in the Gulf of Mexico the tides and waves might break her in half if we move her. We are just waiting for her to quietly decompose so that our shameful failure is complete.
>>43958231some messing is standard with Planefag, but with KCQ he seems to be going much more out of his way to mess with readers for its own sake.
>>43958258I came to SWQ for the waifus...
>>43958305It's a good analogy to the state itself, beautifully tragic.
Space Battleship Arizona when
>>43958331Minna uber alles!
>>43958305It's also because she's over 100 years old. Steel only lasts so long in salt water.The "tides and waves" part is hokey though. They'd just send her down to Gulf Copper again like they did the last time she went into the yard.
>>43958386Minna a shit.A shiiiiiit
>>43958374>Meanwhile, on Bizzaro /a/...
>>43958403Trude was meh.
>>43958395I think you underestimate just how little care the ship has had.The metal below water is so thin and rusted that you could probably sink the ship in a day with a small hammer.
Shirley or Erica would have been great.
>>43958305Thankfully her superstructure, sans engine areas is still in decent enough condition to dry berth her. So once that's fixed here in a few years time they'll set her on blocks and drain her little alcove and she'll be free to sit and be admired for as long as people keep supporting her.
>>43958374Why does that sound so tempting.
>>43958458We should've gone for Lynette....sweater puppies and dem thigh highs.
>>43958446I'll fight you
>>43957072>FightI wonder if we're actually hallucinating from PTSD and flee means we try drowning ourselves.I'm sure planefag wouldn't do that.
>>43958486Bring it, bitch
In other news it looks like Bismarck's going to have a kid.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USNS_Bismarck_%28T-EPF-9%29
>>43958482The way PF writes, she would have been boring as shit. We would have said something stupid, and she would burst into tears every time, and maybe one time she would stand up to us/some other witch and that would literally be the end of her character development
>>43958517Pawn to e4
>>43958482That too, but Minnafags did a good job with their sister-zone tropedos.>>43958531Who could tell? She was a rather minor character due to how Minna took over. And Minna herself seemed boring at first but look at how he handled her.
>>43958548>E4YOU SONOFABITCH I STILL DON'T HAVE GRAF ZEPPELIN AAAAAAAAAAA
>>43958531As great as Lynette is, she was too young. Hence the breakdown from being ogled
>>43958231>>43958267This is my first Planefag quest. I'm enjoying how much the waifu trolling is bending people out of shape. It helps engage the audience.But more than that, I'm enjoying that his quest is adding a lot more depth to the Kancolle universe. It's more than just "oh look the ships are sexy girls now." I like the abyssal mystery, the PSTD and how the shipgirls are handling suddenly waking up in the future.
>>43958548YOU SUNK MY BATTLESHIP DAMMIT!
>>43958531Call me a suck up, but I think PF would have written an interesting romance no matter who we chose.>>43958548Knight to D3. Checkmate>>43958557>And Minna herself seemed boring at first but look at how he handled her.>First time we met her we stumbled out of our plane and fainted

>>43958646Cry for Trude Kota cry for her because she was a looooser!
>>43958645I play a card facedown.
>>43958645You are a suck up, the Minna romance was not well written.Planefag doesn't write romance well, and I don't think he cares to try. He writes it as a necessary evil to questing at best.
>>43958669roll a 1d20 to see if it's a trap.
>>43956691>What is she eating?EVERYTHING.
>>43958664Trude is always a winner
>>43958670>He writes it as a necessary evil to questing at best.Now there's a mighty big assumption you have absolutely no proof of. I really enjoyed the Minna/Young romance, and felt it added a lot to the quest.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>43958701
>>43958745Keine also a cutey
>>43958745>>43958670It turned out decent enough in the end, though at first, she was just a bog standard bitchy character that people went for becaue "hurr durr tsundere"
>>43958395She's not in salt water. She's in fresh water, the San Jacinto River.
>>43958669Shock your morph
>>43958778Speaking as a minnafag, I went after her because the dynamic between her and Young was interesting, and because it gave us the opportunity to develop Young's character more than any other potential romance.
>>43958804Pass priority, it resolves.Reveal the morph to be Deathmist Raptor Dammit you caught on.
>>43958781She's in brackish water. Not sea water, but not quite fresh water either
>>43958829How do you say such things without slapping the shit out of yourself.
>>43958778I thought we went for her in a desperate bid to avoid inevitable court-martial by sucking up to our immediate superior?
>>43958880No we went after her because no matter how much of a pilot we were seeing a young woman having a breakdown hit our buttons to save her.
>>43958880It was more a mutual calling of bullshit and they then somehow tripped into being a couple than a romance.
>>43958868Ad hominen will get you nowhere anon>>43958880It started out as that, but I remember thinking when we decided to go out of our way to get her a nice watch that something was up.
>Griping about short thread, the sky is falling, the quest is dying, price of herring is rising, etcGet a grip folks. PF said no promises on thread length tonight. This is free entertainment, and good free entertainment which is a miracle all by itself. How entitled do you have to be to whine because you aren't getting what you 'deserve' from him? Do you go into McDonald's and ask for extra special pure organic sea salt to go with your french fries too?Grow up.
