TWITTER: FUCK ITARCHIVES: DOUBLE FUCK ITPredictably, your mood went straight to hell after the phone call. After trading threats and dire promises with a dangerous man, your emotions are naturally keyed up for a fight - but today, there's only more paperwork. Hamp liberates a book from your shelf and is happily tearing through it at impressive pace as you catch up on the mundane, but vital matters that go into running even a small military force - even one with such streamlined supply requirements as yours. There's an official dietitian report on your shipgirls; complete with calorie counts - the most notable addition is that Hornet has taken to adding sliced pickles to her hamburgers. Damage reports are better - a report from Wainwright has landed in your in-box detailing Hornet's surprisingly rapid recovery. There's a PS on the bottom...“Hamp?”He looks up at you. “Ayo, skip.” “Have you been to see the doctor?”“Sawbones? What for?”“You kind of got the shit shot out of you in that scrap, didn't you?”“So? Didn't have my bow blown off or anything.” You squint at him. “But... doesn't it hurt?”
He looks politely thoughtful for a second. “For a while? I guess?” He shrugs and turns the next page in his book. “Well, when you get a chance visit the hospital and let the doctor have a look at you.”“I'm fine.”“I know. He needs help with a theory,” you half-lie.“Whazzat?”“Seems to think American ship... people heal a mite faster.”Hamp snorts. “No shit.” The next e-mail is a quick briefing update on the state of sea control in general - and it catches your attention instantly. Icebergs have been spotted drifting much too far south, especially for this time of year, threatening to cause hazards in shipping lanes. Of more immediate importance is reports of intensified anti-convoy activity on the part of the abyssals - a pair of submarines were run off by a pair of Chinese destroyers escorting a grain convoy over the Sea of Japan, and the LCS-1 engaged a pair of surface raiders in an after-dark running gun battle for an hour before the abyssals were forced to disengage under smoke, minutes before P-8s from Hawaii could arrive. You fire off an email to the intel division requesting more details on the submarine attack. Freedom's surface battle, just from the sitrep, sounded legendary - but the submarines are in your backyard and they worry you far more. You remember the SSN skippers reports after the Bonin islands - their protracted undersea duel with very canny subs. Your inbox is finally clear, and you lean back with a sigh.All things considered... you're not really sure what to do. [ ] Write-in. Yes, pure write-in this time. Quality can trump quantity, if its very very good.

>>44822133>[ ] Write-in.>Go talk to Goto, like we meant to do before the yak bastard spooked us. Maybe Yamato is with him
>>44822133[x] write inYou know, maybe I should meet with Goto, discuss this whole Yakuza thing with him.After that, probably check up on other shipgirls, have a chance to introduce new characters.As a side note: Arashi. Now that girl has ISSUES, considering she unwittingly led the dive bombers that sank Akagi, Kaga, and Soryuu to their location and reversing the course of the war for the Japanese.
>>44822133[x] Write a report and send a letter to Admiral Thomas and Goto about the phone we just had with the Yakuza, their relations with the Yakuza group that tried to kill us, what details and connections we uncovered, and a recommended course of action that threats to USN military readiness and ability to protect vital supply convoys to Japan be met with EXTREME PREJUDICE by Japanese police assets.It's not like the Japanese police to pass up a chance to go full Edo Penal Code on someone.
So wait, are we just going to forget about Iwo Jima?
>>44822318Doubt there's much we can do on that front. Got a real admiral handling things there atm
>>44822133>[x] Write a report and send a letter to Admiral Thomas and Goto about the phone we just had with the Yakuza, their relations with the Yakuza group that tried to kill us, what details and connections we uncovered, and a recommended course of action that threats to USN military readiness and ability to protect vital supply convoys to Japan be met with EXTREME PREJUDICE by Japanese police assets.This is probably a good idea.>>44822318Iwo Jima might be good too, but Thomas has it covered.

>>44822133Sit back, take a short breather, maybe get some fresh air before getting back to work. And check in on perhaps getting a chew toy or something for the Corgies.

Planefag your favorite daughteru wants a hug!
>>44822377I'll go with supporting this one.
>>44822318We were always observers. There's admirals who have actually got the job of RUNNING that show; we were just watching and seeing how it went. If they need us, they'll call. Then its time to strap the fuck in because if they need us, it is NOT going well.>>44822133Okay guys, we need to think:What have we ever said, "We need to ____ later?" Like, is there absolutely ANYTHING that's been waiting for a solution? I'd LOVE to say 'fairies' but I know there's higher-priority shit to deal with first.So let's have it. A list of What Needs Doing.I know that sorting shit out with our harem fleet is on there, as we did Arizona a disservice.Talking to Goto about Yamato is also on the list, but that's recent.What have we been sitting on for far too long? Can anybody think?

Anyone notice how the KanColle fanfic world never has USS Texas as a character? Why is that?
>>44822118Alongside Talking to Goto...>Shoot Wainwright a text, ask him how things are with his job outside of his formal reports
>>44822598Maybe because Texas is a shit state.
>>44822527Kind of low-key, wouldn't you say? But yeah, that needs doing. Drop it off at the armoury?>>44822459I'm going with this.The girls need help. We can try and try as much as we wish, but we cannot provide that all of the time. Sure, an open-door policy, or loosening the chain of command so they see us more as a friend than an office would be great, but it's only a start!These shipgirls need the kind of help we can't give. And maybe a shrink that's trained and used to humans can't help either, but it's a goddamn start.There's a hundred other things to do, like figure out the fairies role or how they could help us with upgrades, but first and foremost, we need to see to the mental health of our kanmusu.
>>44822586Tits need to be toned down a big, they're bigger than her goddamn head. Other than that I like it. Got a bit of a shortstack feel to it.
>>44822586Is it just me or is she more STACKED than Lexington? >>44822596I'm pretty sure all of Settle's ships are to some degree.

>>44822377>Go talk to Goto, he probably should hear about the call from the Yakuza. It'll also give us a chance to talk to him about what needs to be done to get Yamato out into the fightThis.Also, maybe a chance to introduce new characters? Pic related.
>>44822459THIS THIS THIS.Develop programs for newly returned ships, ships that have trouble adapting to the modern world, ships that had shit existences previously, and ships that are well settled in the modern world but might need some check ups and getting in touch with their ship-ness.
>>44822619>Drop it off at the armoury?I still say we find one of the half-dozen shipgirls with swords of their own, or just do it ourself.
>>44822619Rule no 1 of psychiatry: Every case is unique and very similar to others at the same time.>>44822645You don't say?Honestly, any warship that served in the first half of the century is bound to be a treasure trove of psychological issues.
>>44822618Don't let anyone from Texas hear you saying that.
>>44822657Not gay if it's a reverse trap.

>>44822673I reiterate, ARASHI! She accidentally led the dive bombers that sank half of the Kido Butai to their location.
>>44822618>Maybe because Texas is a shit state.
>>44822692If Northhampton is a reverse trap, explain the beard.Pic unrelated.
>>44822709And if we waited half a year to propose it, results would take a year from now.So what? Needs to be done. And they'll slowly get better over time.

>>44822703Winston Churchill once said that the fuel of the Navy was Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash. Well, they got rid of the lash and the rum, so what's left?
>>44822729It's actually just coffee grinds.
>>44822729>If Northhampton is a reverse trap, explain the beard.makeup?Also, women can have beards too, they're just far more likely to shave them.

>>44822755>Winston Churchill once said that the fuel of the Navy was Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash. Well, they got rid of the lash and the rum, so what's left?
>>44822734Procrastination is bad, yeah. If we have the time, I'll back it.>>44822773Objection, we've seen Hamp shirtless. He's a man.
>>44822619>Sure, an open-door policy, or loosening the chain of command so they see us more as a friend than an office would be great, but it's only a start!Uh, I think our main fucking problem is that not enough ships see us as an officer. We are an Admiral: we are there to lead, not play at being a shrink. If we CAN by some miracle, sort out a problem someone has, halle-fucking-lujah, but it is not and has never been the reason we're there.
As far as shit 'counseling' goes, so far the best results seem to have come from honest human interaction. Naka with Wayne, Goto telling off Hornet, Shigure and MARINE, Yamato and Hate. Kaga and Goto, etc.I'm not honestly sure how to go about it or anything but somehow encouraging the girls and the humans on base to mingle more will probably be an excellent help.There's the obvious security issues and superstition and all that, but still.
>>44822663All that's brilliant as well. >>44822709 And fuck 'proposals'. We're the one in charge of the US Navy's kanmusu in this theater! If we really push it, we could probably get a goddamn Executive Order passed by tomorrow!Plus I just love the scenes where the shipgirls/boys are all open-mouthed at the world they've come back to. This thread could literally be JUST that and I'd still read it.
Do we have *any* idea where to go next re: Arizona? Like let's pretend we have a free slot in our itinerary reserved for Arizona things. What do we even want to accomplish?Are we going to give Shoukaku the "Sorry I can't continue this in good conscience" speech? Walk back our previous talk as hard as possible? Ignore her and hope that this becomes the status quo?
>>44822804er, ship counseling, not shit counseling.>>44822798Yeah- they need to have human connections, but having it be basically only with the admiral is kind of fucking things
>>44822812Too bad we don't get many older ships, like Age of Sail. They'd be fun.
>>44822819Well something clearly needs to be done, some sort of resolution to her clinginess. Perhaps, the infamous "just friends," speech, but of course that isn't likely to end well. I don't think there's really any safe answer there.
I see a lot of "TALK TO GOTO" so I'll take "Go talk to Goto about Things as well as Yamato" as the winner here! WRITING
>>44822796Hamp could just be /really/ flat chested.
>>44822804>translation: I've never been to counselingWho says it has to be in front of a literal shrink, although I'd recommend that for ships that got treated terribly or have some "I failed to save them" complex.It could just be group sessions and activities.
>>44822819For the moment? Nothing.Does Shoukaku need the speech?No, Shoukaku needs a different speech- the "stop fucking clinging to me when I keep trying to pry you off, just because I was nice to you and took you on one date doesn't make me your goddamn waifu you spiritual neckbeard" speech.
>>44822804>I'm not honestly sure how to go about it or anything but somehow encouraging the girls and the humans on base to mingle more will probably be an excellent help.>There's the obvious security issues and superstition and all that, but still.This sounds the best to me.What is the situation like as far as social interaction goes? What happened with Shigure doesn't paint a pretty picture. I suspect ship girls stick to themselves away from everyone else.Need to change that.
>>44822798We can't treat them as girls and expect them to fight effectively.We can't treat them as ships and expect them to not go insane.We need to treat them as both. We're their Admiral AND their friend/lover/father/big brother at once. Shipgirls are literally THE most complicated military asset humanity has ever had, because they ARE humanity and the sum of their steel parts all in one adorable package.>>44822854Working on iiiit... Blame Mount and Blade, man... At least XCom2's not out yet or I might not even BE here!Nah, I'm kidding. Like I'd miss Planefag for anything.>>44822881Well... It DOES need to be done, but seriously, we need something set up to help their mental health.
>>44822891I would argue that human interaction with the outside world would probably be a somewhat poor idea, considering the otakus.
>>44822881How long until Essex is on base?I want to see her kill the waifu.Again
>>44822804Counter-point. Naka and Harder.>>44822812Okay, if it can be pushed through. I have little faith in bureaucracy.>>44822819Treat Arizona as a daughter is our best case scenario.Average case is strict professionalism.Worse case is that she's already well on the way to becoming an Abyssal.As for Shoukaku, we'll see when we get there/see her again. >>44822886I'm afraid not. Hamp is clearly a man.
>>44822743I like that one a lot better.
>>44822881Oh fuckin good. So that's where she ran off to. WELP.
>>44822891Well, the various writeups have painted a few pictures. Some of the girls are getting along sweel with the other military personel, notably Marines. A few of them are comfortable with the civilians, but they're a lot more mixed and more likely to be spooked.
>>44822928I didn't mean the outside world, I meant others in the armed forces.
>>44822943You better go get her.: ^ )
We should get them pets, they're good at helping human soldiers deal with trauma.
Have some Cleveland
>>44822919Damn you, you pansy, nanny state britfag, you've got the least stiff upper lip I've ever seen in my life.You bitch more than a woman on her period!
>>44822965Fair enough, I can see it working to an extent. Perhaps they could set up an event, a cook out, perhaps, a meet and greet where they can socialize safely?
>>44822975Corgis for everyone!
>>44822934>Treat Arizona as a daughter is our best case scenario.
>>44823006YOU TRY FUCKING A GRAVE
>>44822975They need big dogs, I think. Shepherds of some type.Big, affectionate and not likely to bark at everything.>>44823006Strict professionalism it is.
>>44823006So would you want a pet corgi?If not then could you tell us what you would want as a pet?
>>44822934>Treat Arizona as a daughter is our best case scenario.>Worse case is that she's already well on the way to becoming an Abyssal.Ahahahaha.She's upset because she cares. We're upset because we care. She's jelly, not suicidal.
>>44822975This sounds nice. Get them a Great Pyrenees, those things are patient as hell. Don't listen well to orders, but they are warm and loving to their flock. Tadakichi-san for instance, from Azumanga Daioh.
>>44823020>YOU TRY FUCKING A GRAVE>>44823022>Strict professionalism it is.
>>44822934>>44823006Don't worry about Bentus, Arizona, hes a hardcore shoukakufag, the braindead obsessed kind.
>>44822992What ever happened to the British way of suffering in quiet desperation? >>44823020Was that a challenge?
>>44823043I never said the worse case scenario was the most plausible one.In fact, my worse case scenario for all ship girl interactions is "becomes an Abyssal".
>>44822934>Treat as a daughterFuck no, she's a battleship. A strong ship of the fleet, not something to baby.
>>44822934>Treat Arizona as a daughter is our best case scenario.>Treat a woman who has a romantic interest in us like a daughter, completely bypassing and trampling on her feelingsRight, sure. There is absolutely no fucking way that this could backfire horrifically on us. No sir.

>>44823085Well, keep finding and sharing it. It'll make planefag get creative with his reaction posts with there's no more images for the thread.
>>44823078>implying he didn't leave because his people needed him
>>44823093And as we all know, once somebody's feeling are hurt/crushed, they will never recover. Ever. That single conversation has completely cemented Arizona's feelings and opinion of us, forever.
>>44823096He most certainly can, especially when he has fucking liver cancer.

I'm not even honestly concerned with any of the harem and I know that isn't happening.Admirals command fleets. Face it, we're getting a fleet ending.

YOU try running an empire while you're trying to re-build your damn country and recover from a beating like that!

>>44823188>told Kongou to act like Arizona to win Goto's heart>promptly broke Arizona's heart by saying 'never gonna happen'I don't know, anon, she might be a little suspicious about our motives and logic at this point

Higgins end or riot.
>>44823237A pansy and a haremfag, can it get any worse?
>>44823143No, but it's certainly a good way to build on the previous time we trampled on her feelings and disregarded her.>>44823206There's that, too.>>44823237The argument made last Wednesday was that Settle was a Captain, no?
>>44823237>It died when we lost a MILLION of our people in World War One and we realised that PTSD was a thing!Then what the fuck was all that stiff upper lip stuff you guys were pulling off in WWII?
>>44823283>Could it get any worseHe could also be welsh.
>>44823276Ok but imagine Higgins standing with the contents of all 96 VLS cells floating behind her gate of babylon-style
>>44823093Aaaand you honestly believe that the best way to solve this problem would be to treat her like a child? Blow off everything that's happened between them like it's not happened? More to the point, do you actually think that Arizona would be fucking happy with such an arrangement?>>44823237On behalf of all Bongs reading this thread, I'd like to state that we most certainly are not all like this guy, and we are so, so sorry
>>44823237Not only do you lack a stiff upper lip but also a proper understanding of your own history. Well done.
>>44822972Oh, she's perfectly fucking fine, I'm sure. As long as it's not her going to meet one of you fucks we're ok.
You know what I want to see?Iowa and Yamato teaming up to find the best Waifu for everyone's favorite Maine officer, Hate.
>>44822943Level with me: If Yamato wasn't who she was and some person you met elsewhere in your life, would you or would you not consider being in a relationship with her
>>44823336Upon further though, you're right. That would likely lead to further bad case scenarios.Doesn't mean we can salvage it right now.
>>44823254>promptly broke Arizona's heart by saying 'never gonna happen'Except we didn't vote for that. We voted for the "stop thinking I'm fucking worth something" pity party, and tearing ourself down because we were trying to convince her not to like us for both of our own goods.'It would destroy us both if something happened after we went for it' is almost the exact opposite of 'never gonna happen'
>>44823369I refuse to fucking answer that question on the basis that it's not grounded in fucking reality.
>>44823354Hey Hate. What would Iowa say when she finds out that you've been cheating on her?
>>44823237>peddling weapons to both damn sides and gleefully declaring, "LALALA NOT MY PROBLEM,"Opinion *utterly* disregarded. How goddamn salty can you be, that it produces delusions like that?
>>44823391Thank you for answering, and I respect your opinion. I'll let sleeping dogs lie.
>>44823393It's not actually cheating on her if he actually isn't with her in that way.Which I assume he isn't.
We aren't going to make things with Arizona any less awkward or problematic by treating her like a child or trying to restart a romance with her.Best thing to do is leave the situation be and she how she handles it, before making any moves we can't take back. Maybe asking Hornet to keep her occupied or let Arizona vent on her might be the best bet.
>>44823430And that's exactly what he's been saying.
>>44823365So a threesome involving two of the most powerful battleships put to sea and a single marine? >>44823354As far as IJN boats go, I prefer Nagato, but I certainly wouldn't pass up Yamato.
>>44823430I know, but I want to see how Hate reacts.
IOWA FUCKING HATE UNTIL HE BECOMES A FAIRY WHEN
>>44823386Actually Planefag said we ' tore Arizona's heart up into confetti'....that sounds a lot like we broke her heart Arizonafag.
The St. Louis sisters.Captcha is oceans????!
>>44823386Like seriously, what the fuck are y'all smoking.>I'm not handling the burden of command very well>They don't play by the rules, and I've given them plenty of reasons to want me dead. Nobody's really safe, you know?>You can't go making life and death decisions when you're wrapped up emotionally with... certain people like that. I've been doing it myself, I... I know.That is not the sound of 'Never gonna happen".That is the fucking sound of "I'm scared if we let it happen we'll both drown when things go wrong"
>>44823283I could be a brony? Look, I don't hate on your tastes is all I'm saying.>>44823296Well we couldn't very well let Jerry know how badly we were reeling, could we? Besides, we knew the stakes. That was the last hurrah of the Empire and it cost us another half-million. No way in hell we could come back from that. By that point, I think the wars had taken something close to 2% of the population!>>44823336>>44823340Alright, so what exactly am I doing so wrong here? Please enlighten me.>>44823405Okay, maybe the weapons thing was incorrect, but America DEFINITELY had an isolationist streak until roughly the end of WW2, you cannot even BEGIN to tell me it didn't!
>>44823393In what bizzaro world is that even a fucking issue?

>>44823482They seem underdressed.
>>44823481Well yeah, saying 'this is too dangerous to let happen' is still a rejection. Just not the dramatic declaration of finality that people seem to be thinking it is.
>>44823237>The Empire died because after slugging it out with Germany for two bloody rounds, most of which was while the Americans were sitting on their brains, peddling weapons to both damn sides and gleefully declaring, "LALALA NOT MY PROBLEM," there were only 14 villages in the United Kingdom that hadn't had SOMEONE in them die! YOU try running an empire while you're trying to re-build your damn country and recover from a beating like that!I was going to reply and then I realized that maybe people should chill the fuck out and not pile the fuck on aaaayyyyyy?AAAYYYYY? ALL OF YOU, AAAAAAY

>>44823493You wouldn't have won the Second World War if not for the Arsenal of Democracy, though.
>>44823520Different St. Louis
>>44823493>Okay, maybe the weapons thing was incorrect, but America DEFINITELY had an isolationist streak until roughly the end of WW2, you cannot even BEGIN to tell me it didn't!And look at what acting like the world police has gotten us
>>44823539GO KNOCK UP A BATTLESHIP
>>44823487Thank you, someone who gets it
>>44823555God damn it anon, as you wish.
>>44823520You're thinking C-20. The pic is CL-49.
>>44823536Close enough.I think captcha is trying to tell you something, though. >>44823531ayy lmao?
>>44823568HE CANT SHE WONT EMMIGRATE
>>44823493Not even that DURING WW2. Get your fact straight mate.
>>44823591Those shore batteries gotta be installed sometime, right?

>>44823581Figures. Tier III shipfu when?
>>44823493>but America DEFINITELY had an isolationist streak until roughly the end of WW2, you cannot even BEGIN to tell me it didn't!>Lend-lease, Destroyers for bases was Isolationist>Japanese Oil Embargo was isolationist>Washington Treaty was isolationist>Repossessing Spain's colonial empire was isolationistAmerica hasn't been isolationist since the end of the Civil War, no matter what some wold like to think.
>>44823498One where you're sort of in a relationship with a giant death machine due to being part of her crew. And her saving your life and shit. GET YOUR DICK WET IN HER POOP DECK YOU PANSY ASS EXCUSE FOR A MARINE!
>>44823487They're smoking straight up denial. They don't want to get into a relationship with Ari, so they deny that there's any attraction at all.
>>44823591She doesn't have to emigrate. Just make sure she gives berth on US soil.
>>44823354Hate, you really think we would bully Yamato?I'm wounded
>>44823630Your definition of Isolationist seems to be "North Korea"
>>44823577You're a good man. Doing two countries proud.
>>44823617Erm, anon... she's probably Abyssal. She's from the right era.
>>44823520This is the St. Louis you're looking for.Captcha bananas.
>>44823498So you're saying that she's okay with it and you have a threesome going on with the world's most buxom battleships?Lucky bastard...
>>44823663In an industrialised society, it's frankly impossible for it to be any other way. The world became too interconnected long ago.
Hey, so as a little update to our game, we've just added a new ship to the roster! The USS Jason!Also, in other news, Tashkent, in her usual Russian fashion, got our captured Abyssal drunk when she force fed it alcohol and she and Vetehinen rode it around like a makeshift jetski, pissing off just about everybody in the fleet.We are now about to assault Hawaii to rescue it from a massive Abyssal blockade.
>>44823506>>44823539Yamato lewds too when?
>>44823720We should get the Corgis drunk and see what happens.
Oh gee, look at the time!Late as usual, dammit.
>>44823720That is amazing.
I know this ain't her but tell that this pic doesn't look like Pacifics Chicago.Captcha coffee
>>44823668Being Abyssal is more a function of how the ship served during it's operational life and how it's remembered. I can dream, damn it. >>44823689That's more like it.
Only healthy ships allowed
>>44823766Bad Idea Anon, is that you?
>>44823591There's one who's already with him.
>>44823487Exactly.There's a hint of attraction and shit but acting on it right now could explode messily for both of them and not in the fun way like with the hooker the Arizona smuggled to california.
>>44823689>Dat hip-check of doom>>44823766Buddy, you do know what Torpedo Juice is right? Those little fucks could drink half the marines on the base under the table, one after another!
>>44823647And on the flipside they think that Settle cares a hell of a lot more about Shoukaku than he actually does
>>44823766Getting your dog drunk is hilarious and awesome and everyone should do it at least once.
>>44823766That's the thing anon PT crews sustained themselves on alcohol, rage, and insanity.

>>44823810>There's a hint of attraction>a hintBro Goto had to bail us out after we were so concerned for Ari we trailed off all all dramatic-like something out of a romcon in front of our literal boss, because he knows that exact feel
>>44823652This. Hate can get some shore leave and spend time with best battleship.
>>44823789>South Dakota literally gave up two of her AA turrets so that she could fit an Admiral inside herAmerican Kongo confirmed, she literally sacrificed offensive and defensive power for his dick.
Well, as usual I work on sundays so won't be monitoring this.A [REDACTED] is fine too, but we really should look into the whole shipslut PTSD treatment thing.
>>44823766Sorry, no Corgis in this campaign! We're not running off strict KCQ rules!
>>44823924Boatgirl counselling sounds like a good idea.
>>44823487At least someone gets it.
>>44823482USS St. Louis and USS Helena
>>44823938I meant it more as a general idea, but gotcha. Been reading up on yours, victorian shipsluts are best shipsluts.
Hey guys!So I was browsing google idly about ol' Higgins, and I found this.
>>44823988As long as he pleases.
>>44823970It scares me that anon is finally learning in a Planefag quest.
>>44822459I dunno, she seemed fine to me.
>>44823970Hey anon, do you know how she died?>>44824012Your looking at the wrong girl
>>44823996So Settle's ship is a trap?
>>44823909She carried Nimitz into Tokyo Bay for the surrender and Halsey out. She even carried both at the same time once.
>>44823996Is that a flat-chested girl or a trap?
>>44824026Are you implying Essex will be a source of PTSD?Because I can believe it.
>>44824019Bastard! I'm now thinking lewd thoughts about spanking a battleship.
>>44823992I know, right?
>>44823996>watch out or he'll shoot you with his gas pump
>>44824036>>44824066It's not gay if it's underway~
>>44823996nigger what?It would be a way to remove the option of a Higgins route though.
>>44823996>reverse trap Higgins
>>44823996>she even looks yandereexcellent
Have some Yamato
>>44823812I hate to say this, but the whole thing is Trude all over again. Anon wants a girl without issues. I've got news for you: this is a planefag quest, they all have issues.
>>44823657'Bully' My dick. You fucks would be trying to get her naked about as fast as she could fucking blink. >>44823690I'm not even fucking sure how to respond to that. I very fucking much doubt it though>>44823765Fucking never.
>>44824055So we have an American Kongou who's into Double Penetration..
>>44824088But it's a guy.

>>44824088>>she even looks yandereWhat, like crazy?How is that even a look?
>>44824111You've got a lot to learn.
I was thinking that we don't have any tsunderes in our harem. What travesty is this?
>>44824088I didn't know your sister modeled for Kancolle

>>44824067yes, yes I am.source: http://www.combinedfleet.com/Hayashimo-TU-Notes.htm
>>44824156And? That doesn't mean things cannot be otherwise.
>>44824088What's Essex doing?
>>44824170>Naka used subliminal messaging>Anon has been mind-controlled! Anon will now do Naka's bidding
>>44824156That figures....have some morning sexy bedhead Houshou
>>44824142Tsunderes are overused and shit though
>>44824185Except that's not how that works. That's not how that fucking works at all.
>>44824216OK marine, we know you're gay but for Iowa's sake you can pretend you like pussy ok?
>>44824170You don't understand, it's harem law.We already got the "trap" with Hamp, so we need the tsundere part now. And I don't see Hamp tsun-tsuning any soon.
>>44824142We already go our fill of that in SWQ
>>44824170>>44824199naka pls sublimate me
>>44824170What do I want?
>>44824210Any personality that can be summed up with a single word is shit.
>>44824216How does it work, then? Does Iowa take the lead? Or is it Yamato?
>>44824254What a girl wants.
>>44824262Especially Idol singers.
>>44824245It's Ooi. KTKM is just her 'beard' if you will. A distraction to hide her attraction.I realize I am full of shit and wrong. Don't worry too much about it. Just laugh at me instead.
>>44824269I don't fuck Yamato. That's how that works.
>>44824245Do you think the new shipgirl is a tsundere on top of being a loud idiot?
>>44824184Ehhh fuck it here the Nimitz damage art too.Captcha is boats...Where my Alcohol?
>>44824088Reverse trap will do.
>>44824285So you fuck Iowa?
>>44824252I...I don't think you actually know what that word means
>>44824070Would it be a slapping sound, or a metallic 'ping'?>>44824093I won't deny there are a distinct number of us that want to hold her hand Lieutenant.Actually, that's a damn good point. What would to even do on a date with a girl like that? The standard cheesy stuff? You marines etc. have it easy; you at least have a little common ground with them.The most we civvies can do is stare and go, "Holy crap, she's ridiculously pretty and nice and gentle and even-tempered and strong, etc. etc."Huh, I have issues.
>>44824205>>44824189Well, here's Higgins' older 'brother' while we're at it
>>44824286Literally the worst fetish.
>>44824285Hey Hate would you be tempted to make a shotgun using two 18 inch naval rifles and then have it fire san shiki shells?
I know what Kongou wants.
>>44824285>I don't fuck Yamato. That's how that works.You're right; she fucks you.
>>44824291I'm joining you
>>44824199>>44824228>>44824245>>44824252>>44824254I hate you all.
>>44824288>I-IT'S NOT LIKE I LIKE JAPAN OR ANYTHING, Y-YOU IDIOT!
>>44824327Kongou is purest shipslut.
>>44824291>>44824184Whelp, this artist loves the big guns, eh?
>>44824311A ringing ping echoing after the slap as she blushes.
>>44824339Oh, I get it! You wanna be our Tsundere?
>>44824311Slapping sound.Buddy of mine toured one of the battleships when he was 13. Knocked on the hull. No ring, just the dull thump of something too thick to resonate from human hands.
>>44824358No, she wants to be Harder's
>>44824361Well now we know what we'll have to include when Hate and Iowa finally make Marine Landing Craft together.
>>44824339Hate leads to the dark side Naka.
>>44824339Naka is best tsundere
>>44824339>There's only one true Naka>For Naka's fleet>I am but a student of Naka>All in Naka's mind>BE ONE WITH NAKA
>>44824325The Hell with that. An underbarrel attachment for his other gun.Build the worlds greates Master Key.
>>44824339I'm very sorry that you are trapped with people who desperately want to fuck an underage boatgirl.
>>44824339But do you hate your adorable Sea Bunny?

>>44824399>underagethis word is so meaningless in this situation it's laughable
>>44824379Missouri or Iowa. I only recall that much because at the time I knew exactly 4 battleship names, and those were the only two American ones.
>>44824438Who were the other two?
>>44824423Stop being a Debbie Downer.
>>44824455Bismark and Yamato. Bismark I had a model of, and Yamato because I'm a weeb who had good TV when he was little.
>>44824426Have hope, anon.
>>44823482>raked stacksBut that's a Japanese thing

>>44824529>SWQ continuation never
>>44824531She has. It was mentioned a while back. I think Hate showed it to her.
>>44824560Hey Naka question; Just how embarrassing was this incident?

>>44824601It's all girls so it's ok. Purest lewds.

>>44825137That's actually good. It's unlikely to be something bad.I advise heat/cold on the affected area (which ever feels best) and rest. Maybe some muscle relaxants or analgesics. And no pillow forts.>>44825133Ah, we've had worse.>>44825214This is also likely.
>>44825172Those fucking things were meant to be unsinkable. Forty feet thick pykrete! Not even the Iowa's or Yamato's could achieve that.

>>44825303That's Junko, the final boss from Touhou 15: Legend of Lunatic Kingdom.
>>44825324Brittanic was sunk by either a U-boat or a mine. Olympic dodged torpedoes, then rammed and sank the ship that tried to sink her.

>>44825341Because, considering Canadians, it does make some amount of sense.
I just remembered something.During the US civil war both sides fought hard on the Rivers and built a shit ton of river going warships like the picture. They were use for everything from fighting, and dear lord was there a lot, to SHORE BOMBARDMENT. Do you know what happen to them?The three S's, SCRAP, SUNK, OR, SCUTTLED.And to add insult to injury how many people do you think know about these things? Not a lot

>>44825518Or Arashi, or Willie D. Or most of the Japanese light carriers.
You turn over several options in your head. Training-wise, Willie seems to have things well in hand, especially after her performance in the last battle. Sammy is... Sammy. You were hoping Naka could be a moderating influence on her ever-present bloodlust, but with Naka in the doldrums as of late, you doubt they'll be training together, much less sortieing...... wait. You pick up the phone and place a quick call. There's a brief exchange of credentials - the Navy equivalent of sniffing each others asses - and with a few quick words you've got Sammy re-assigned from the training schedule to the evening patrol slot. You chuckle to yourself as you hang up - that ought to give Naka something to mope about, all right. Hamp looks up as you pluck your cap off the desk and start cane-limping towards the door. “Where to?” he asks as he rises, book in hand. “I think I'm going to talk to Goto,” you say absently as you limp out the door. Hamp stops long enough to tack a post-it note to the door - “The Admiral is OUT-” before following you down the hall. You knock on Goto's door three times before you get an answer - and it's a female voice. “Come in, Yankeetoku~” With a sigh and an eye-roll - god DAMN it, Kongou - you enter. Yamato proves to be the greeter, resplendent and pink as always. She chooses to greet you with an exuberant hug, then carefully maneuvers around you to give Hamp one, too. He rocks slightly under the assault, holding his coffee high to avoid having it crushed.
>>44825441https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98XP-exh9QII wonder if Harder would like Mouth Sounds and Mouth Silence.
>>44825458I think you mean Bear Force. The Habbakuk was a carrier, after all.>>44825459Still, the idea of a shipgirl going hockey fight on an Abyssal is too good not to dream up. Plus the later public release of the AAR would be narrated by an uncomfortable Don Cherry
>>44824055Does Halsey even count as a worthwhile admiral after what he did?
>>44825400on that note? what about the german fleet at jutland? specifically the battlecruisers.they sunk over twice their number on the opposite line, got pummeled and barely made it home. at first were hailed as heroes who won a great battle, and a couple of days later scorned as failures and never allowed to fight a real battle again. then at the end of the war were scuttled to spite the british.
"Hey, Yamato.”“Hey!” she says brightly. “I was just bringing Admiral Goto some lunch.” “Huh,” you say with confusion. “Doesn't Kongou want to do that?” “She does, but then she tries to stay and hand-feed him.” “And she can't guilt her way in with 'I made this just for you'?”Yamato giggles. “She's a good girl, but she's not the best cook.”Goto still hasn't greeted you - he's at his desk, leaning forward slightly, eyes focused on the monitor. You recognize the expression; the firm set of the mouth, the intense eyes. You place your palms on his desktop and lean forward. “What is it?”His eyes break contact with the screen, and he seems to start a bit. “Oh. Eh.” He cuts his eyes at Yamato, then back at you. “Nothing.” A click of his mouse, and the screen ceases to perturb him. “What brings you here?” You sit down in the guest chair and sigh. Brief consideration is given to ejecting Yamato and Hamp, but... you really aren't in any position to discount anyone's advice as worse than your own. You sigh. “I just had a chat with Arizona.” Goto's eyes lock onto you like IR seeker heads. “Define 'chat'.” You rub your face. “I... just told her I know she's got a crush on me.” From behind you comes one low whistle and one girly eep. Goto keeps his glare affixed. “And?”“... and that it wasn't a good idea to go putting me on a pedestal, or getting too... involved.” “Aaaand, tell me, how did that go over, Settle?”
>>44825559>Sammy is... Sammy. You were hoping Naka could be a moderating influence on her ever-present bloodlust, but with Naka in the doldrums as of late, you doubt they'll be training together, much less sortieing...Sammy seems to like or at least tolerate Takao, so maybe she'd be worth looking into.
You recline in your chair, letting your head flop back to look at the ceiling. “She basically asked if I'd given Shoukaku that same speech before walking around base with her.” “Oh no,” Yamato says quietly. “Yeah.” You close your eyes. “She stormed off after that and small wonder.” The sound of plastic rollers on wood is heard, and then the gentle clink of glasses being taken out and liquid poured. You close your hands around the shot glass pressed into your hand and choke down the brandy without moving your head or opening your eyes. “I've never seen someone literally toss it back,” Yamato says, sounding impressed. “Sailor, babe.” You hear the chair next to you creak as something sizable occupies it - then the gentle, welcome touch of small, soft hands on your arm. “Admiral?” “Hmm?”“How do you really feel about both of them?” You open your eyes to stare at the darkened fluorescent fixture above. “Hell, I don't know.”“Do you want me to guess?”You roll your shoulders with what might be a shrug. “You like eating lunch with Shoukaku, I hear... but she comes to you more than you go to her. I think you like her company because she takes your mind of things for a while - you're just a gentleman and his lady friend, at times like that.” You sigh. “That sounds pretty accurate.” “And Arizona...” Yamato sounds uncertain. “Well, I haven't seen you together much... but everyone says you two have a kind of telepathy.” *That* makes you sit up and look at her. “What?”Yamato smiles. “She doesn't talk, you know?” “No shit.”“But you always seem to understand what she's saying.”You frown. “Have you seen how much sign language and ad-libbing it takes?”
>>44824153What was special about Missouri again that got her the honor?
>>44825488only if its how to kill them
Yamato gives you another smile, this one loaded with extra patience as she jostles you gently by your arm. “Admiral, you always seem to guess her meaning with one try. The rest of us watching that don't seem to have a clue.”“She's right,” Goto chimes in. “I have heard the other girls chatting about it, even.”“... so what?” you ask. “We think alike?” “What *do* you think of her?” Goto asks quietly. “What's the first thing you think of, when you think of Arizona? “Faithful,” you say instantly. Yamato blushes pink and smiles, prompting a frown from you. “Not like that. I mean, reliable. Always there. She's... Arizona. She doesn't have issues, or-”Three people cut you off all at the same time, their voices mixing into a babble. “OKAY!” you snap back. “Okay, she must have issues, she doesn't talk, yadda yadda, but she...” ... suppress them. Controls them. Soldiers on and gets the damn job done, her emotions be damned. “She does remind me a bit of you,” Goto says quietly. “You're both pretty reserved by default, and you both tend to hunker down and bull your way through when problems come along. Like she did in that first battle.” “So?” you ask sharply. “So? So WHAT!? So what is all this psychobabble bullshit supposed to mean? When does this produce actionable analysis, here? So we're both self-contained, so what?”
>>44825639DEATH TO SNEK.XCOM AKBAR
Goto gives you a look that makes your insides wither - and you realize you know damned well what it means. Naka told you as much, that night, where she saw your stoicism taking you - by way of empirical evidence in her own commander. “I think,” Yamato says softly as she squeezes your arm, “that Arizona has been counting on you as much as you've been counting on her.” You snort. “Then she's making a mistake.” “Is she?” Yamato says gently. “You pulled that shell out of her - you could call that a one-time misjudgment, I guess - but then you try to turn her away by telling her you're worried how much it'll hurt *her.* You're selfless to a fault, Settle - people have talked about it. The first thing you say when someone shows up, no matter what your situation is, is 'what do you need help with'?” “... but that's my *job*,” you point out. “And... I don't see how she'll ever forgive me for Shoukaku. She had a point.” You pinch the bridge of your nose with a sigh again - the headache is back, stronger than ever, and your leg is hurting like a bitch as well. Did you take your painkillers this morning? You can't even remember. “Settle,” Yamato chides you softly, “either you don't think Shoukaku feels as deeply about you as Arizona does, or you care more about her well-being, or rate her more highly. Once she's done being angry and frustrated, she's going to remember that.”You peer at her. “This is Arizona we're talking about. She's... pretty pragmatic.”Yamato giggles. “How would you know? She can't say everything she wants to, I think. And that utter devotion is the kind of things girls dream about~” Yamato looks dreamy for a second, almost swooning in place. Goto makes a sound not quite like a growl, snapping her out of it. “Anyway, you should just go talk to her.”
>>44825619Last Battleship completed/commissioned by the USN. Fitting that the last of their war machines puts an end to the war.
>>44825649>Goto>how do I into girls>"well, I haven't stuck my dick in any of them, so you're shit out of luck"
>>44825649>“So?” you ask sharply. “So? So WHAT!? So what is all this psychobabble bullshit supposed to mean? When does this produce actionable analysis, here? So we're both self-contained, so what?”It's almost like you're a father and daughter.

“Yamato, honey,” you reply, “I don't even think I *feel* that way about her yet-”“You don't have to,” she insists, shaking your arm hard enough to rattle the chair. “Just don't push her away and... let things develop or die on their own, okay?” “Yamato - I'm an *Admiral.* I can't... I can't favor any one ship. I've got to command, I've got to lead...” you sigh. “And I've been doing a piss-poor job of it sometimes,” you mutter under your breath. “I mean-” you turn your eyes to Goto, sending a silent plea.Goto glares you down, those dark, intense eyes calculating quickly - and then you see something relent in the taut carriage of his wiry frame. “... no,” he replies quietly. “No.”“... what,” you say flatly. “No, Settle,” Goto sighs. “You can't just push her away and call it professionalism. Even the most patient ones have their limits, and...” he rubs the back of his head, a sudden awkward fidget. “I... they're girls, but... there's schoolgirl crushes, and then there's, uh, Kongou.” He gives you a Look. “She really did come to you for romantic advice, didn't she?”You make a noncommittal rolling motion of your shoulders that might not quite entirely not be a shrug.
>>44825619What's his name was born there.
>>44825724>You make a noncommittal rolling motion of your shoulders that might not quite entirely not be a shrug.HERE IT COMES

Goto harrumphs. “Yeah, I wouldn't confirm or deny that one either, you asshole. Still... Kongou changing fronts is like... El Nino. She simply *is,* for the most part.” He shakes his head. “Settle, it's changing fast. It's not going to be like the last sixteen months were, not anymore. We both know its coming. There won't be a status quo that lets those stress cracks form without opening them - failure's going to be catastrophic. You-” he pauses. “*We* have to make some changes, I think.”You absorb that silently, holding Goto's gaze long enough that he can see you've digested it. “Now,” Goto says at length. “While you're here - what else needs doing?” [ ] Ask him if he's seen the report you sent in immediately after that nice phone call from the Yakuza - you want to loop Yamato in on your overall plans.

>>44825998You're good people anon. My kind of people.
>>44825619Actually? Fucking nothing but politics.South Dakota was the most decorated battleship there with 13 battle stars, several campaign medals and three separate unit citations. Battleship X (because she was claimed killed and considered confidential) had been in the Pacific to participate in both Santa Cruz and Guadalcanal (She was part of Enterprise's task force and provided AA cover for her) before her engineer had a major fuck up and left her blind and helpless juuuust as Kirishima, Atago, and Takeo were fresh out of destroyers to savage. Kirishima only hit her once hilariously enough while Washington blew her to shreds without suffering a single hit. She then went back to the east coast and got patched up, helped out the USS Ranger and alongside her sister the USS Alabama (who still exists by the way) was part of a task group assigned to Norwegian waters to catch and tear the Tirpitz to shreds if she tried to break into the North Atlantic. After spending a few months doing that, South Dakota was sent back to the pacific for the rest of her career, being the first US ship to shell Honshu and participated in most of the major naval actions in the pacific during the remainder of the war. It should be also noted that SoDak's service record was only beaten by the North Carolina, and old Showboat simply had been around longer. Hell, her sailors even stole Nagato's flag in Tokyo harbor when they were docked alongside her. Missouri got the gig because of two real reasons, one of which makes *some* sense the other being political bullshit. 1. The Missouri was Admiral Halsey's flagship, and one of the two biggest ships there alongside the Iowa. She simply had more room than her smaller older sister. 2. The most likely one: MacArthur being his usual political bullshit self, swapping the location at the last minute to score points with Truman. The Missouri had been commissioned IIRC by Truman's daughter and Missouri was Truman's home state.

>>44825767>[o] Ask him if he's seen the report you sent in immediately after that nice phone call from the Yakuza - you want to loop Yamato in on your overall plans. Yamato Nadeshiko is a wildflower. Yamato doesn't need protecting from politics.
>>44826058Wrong Kirishima hit Sodak alot more than that.http://navweaps.com/index_lundgren/South_Dakota_Damage_Analysis_Introduction.pdf
>>44826188And then he gave himself a Medal of Honor for leaving tens of thousands of his own troops behind at Corregeidor to be brutally treated by the Japanese victors. The fucker.
>>44826130>>44826152They actually have the chair he brought on the SoDak at the memorial she got built because unlike Lucky A and M, USN didn't deem her worthy of Museum ship status (bullshit honestly, same with Washington). MacArthur brought his own fucking CHAIR to the ship he decided not to use for signing the surrender, and left it there. What a cunt. South Dakota's memorial also incidentally contains a part of the Arizona recovered from her while building her Memorial.
>>44826058>Hell, her sailors even stole Nagato's flag in Tokyo harbor when they were docked alongside her.I love sailors, that is all.
>>44826230Huh. I thought she only got hit with one 14 incher though?
>>44826058Fun fact about Washington, shes the ship that everyone loves to bully.>ignored by press who instead focus on Showboat>Kirishima kill is originally credited to SoDak by the news>doesn't even get to stay in port long enough to be repainted and gets rusty>crew extremely angry for basically the entire war because nobody even acknowledges their existence
>>44826176When is Essex? I'm worried about what's happening while she's offscreen.
>>44826130I think we all agree on that point.How did he rise up so high despite fucking up so often?
>>44826253It's late, alright? I'm going to bed and catching the rest of the thread tomorrow...Plz no more trauma and depression in Nakatime...
>>44826277Literally the Akari of the US Navy.
>>44826277Well that's her fault for being named after the shittiest state.
>>44826281Temporally speaking, sometime.
>>44826308>Plz no more trauma and depression in Nakatime...AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
>>44826281Enjoy this time, we won't be able to pretend she doesn't exist in the near future.
>>44826270SoDak was only hit with ONE AP shell. All the other shells were high explosive. Which, unlike in World of Warships, does squat to armor ships.
>>44826308If anything, we need trauma, depression, and kissing in Naka time.
>>44826308THE RIDE NEVER ENDS
>>44826281Within the next two threads. You can quote me on that one.
>>44826308>Plz no more trauma and depression in Nakatime...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_n5E7feJHw0
So who wants to see Naka cosplay as Akarin~?
>>44826270Thats correct. Kirishima was basically at spitting distance and still missed all but one 14" shell out of multiple broadsides and volleys. Her secondary 6" guns scored a few hits as well, causing negligible damage.Meanwhile Washington rolls in and hits Kirishima 20 times with 16" shells a few minutes later.
>>44826370I don't want her Abyssal form to add invisibility to its list of superpowers.
>>44826335Good, she is best waifu.
>>44826277She and SoDak's crews got into a fistfight after Guadalcanal over that - though I'd attribute a few of the five inch gun hits to SoDak because of how close up they were with Kirishima, there's no doubt the 16 inchers were all from Washington. SoDak's fire control had been shot to shit and even before that short circuited by her chucklefuck of a chief engineer - she was firing pretty much blind the entire battle. >>44826338No shit sherlock - so only 1 hit that mattered. You tried Kirishima.
>>44825586Forget the German Navy, what about the Austria\Hungary Navy?
>>44826373The funniest part is that Washington took no damage - because they thought all the shellfire was coming from the SoDak and kept pounding her before she slipped away and they finally realized what was going on.
>>44826416Austria is landlocked, idiot.
>>44826416>Forget the German Navy
>>44825686>Yamato giggles. “How would you know? She can't say everything she wants to, I think. And that utter devotion is the kind of things girls dream about~” Yamato looks dreamy for a second, almost swooning in place.Oh goddamnit girl. Who the fuck is it, I wonder. God fucking damnit.
Are ships flags their panties?
>>44826435Not back then it wasn't
>>44826445>Who the fuck is it, I wonder.The World Wonders Hate.
>>44826445Worried about your sister getting in bad company? I know dat feel bro.
>>44826391We saw her for less than fifteen minutes, anon. You can't just hand the crown of 'best waifu' off based on such limited observations.
>>44826176Last one of the night, yeah? I mean, seriously. If you're hurting, take some time to heal.No one (except the trolls, but fuck'em) would begrudge you postponing because of that.
>>44826445it's Crab, I bet
>>44826445So you're admitting it now?
>>44826435Not Austria Hungary. They controlled modern day Croatia and Bosnia.
>>44826449Massachusetts had a shell from Jean Bart actually rip a hole in her flag during Operation Torch.so she probably has a big hole in them somewhere
>>44826467>Hate gets a harem of battleships
>>44826445>Who the fuck is it, I wonder.Gee I wonder who it could be? Who could share her feelings about not being able to fight due to factors outside their control? Who has been spending their time with her and not treating her like she's made of glass?GEE WILL THESE PIECES OF THE PUZZLE EVER LINE UP?
>>44826398>SoDak's fire control had been shot to shit and even before that short circuited by her chucklefuck of a chief engineer - she was firing pretty much blind the entire battle. At least he didn't let the singularity loose.
>>44826449No their panties are their inside paint. Which explains Hornets lack of panties since the USN scrape it all off when it was found to be flamible
>>44826500Battleships are too high maintenance.
>>44826509I wouldn't have put it past the guy - it didn't help her crew was pretty much all green aside from some reservists.
Kirishima hit more than once but in the end who sailed away matters more.http://www.navweaps.com/index_lundgren/Battleship_Action_Guadalcanal.pdf
>>44826470Also she is shit. Shit shipgirl, shit gimmick, shit attitude, shit design, shit artist.
>>44826523They put reservists on a battleship? A latest of the line battleship at the time?
>>44826445I know. But I promised not to tell. ;-)
>>44826500>Implying he doesn't have a harem already.
>>44826445WE FUCKING TOLD YOU BRO BUT NOOOOOOOOOOO LIKE A SISTER YOU BETA FAGGOT
>>44826541This was back when reservists know their shit.
>>44826088But the important thing is that never happened on board.
>>44826535Everything but the design of the ship I agree with. Essex's were pretty good carriers that had been designed with the experience gained from the Yorktown class carriers.
>>44826416>Austria\HungaryThose failures never amounted to shit.
>>44826541Dude, at least their first captain was a fucking hardass who pretty much drilled everyone like a motherfucker and REFUSED to duck when faced with incoming shell fire - nearly killed him but it set an example. "It's beneath the dignity of a US Battleship Captain to give a damn about a Jap's shell."
>>44826565Reservists have never known their shit, bro
>>44826565My mind is full of little fucks.How did that happen? Were they WW I vets?
>>44826574>start a war>immediately become subservient to Germany
>>44826568No I mean the character design. It doesn't integrate anything about the actual boat.
>>44826550How many ship-girls have seen the vid of Settle sword-fighting those 2 yaks?What were their reactions?
So what I took from Goto is that we just need to let shit happen and stop trying to push Arizona away out of some sense of duty or whatever.Is that about the gist of it?
>>44826579>"It's beneath the dignity of a US Battleship Captain to give a damn about a Jap's shell."I like him. What happened to him after the war?
>>44826568I think he meant the drawing design
>>44826596Alright, fair point. Then yeah, I agree on all fronts.
>>44826494BIG MAMIE NOT FOR LEWDS.More seriously, Massachusetts a best.
>>44826598A lot of them popped murderboners, and are now have crushes on Settle.
>>44826598>What were their reactions?Hayashimo dripping.jpg
>>44826449>http://hijiribe.donmai.us/posts/1852275fuck image limit
>>44826416There may or may not be something involving them coming eventually.Just wait a bit.
>>44826594>start a war>drag Germany into it>immediately lose to some fucking serbs>lose to russians>everyone blames them for some reason
>>44826535Are we ever getting pixelfag art of her, or is this it?
>>44826602Will we go talk to her after it or are we going to stew on it for a few weeks then forget about it?
>>44826602Yep. He said they both (as in Goto and Settle) need to change.
Sendai: N-night battle..... NIGHT. BATTLE.
>>44826602I think it was more that we need to get our head on straight and figure out what Arizona means to us....daughteru.
>>44826640Pixelfag got banned, dude.
>>44826535You are still fucking salty about the artist holy shit.
>>44826435https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austro-Hungarian_Navy>Austro-Hungarian Navy>Active: 1786–1918>4 Dreadnoughts>9 Pre-dreadnoughts>4 Coastal defence ships>3 Armoured cruisers>6 Light cruisers>30 Destroyers>36 Torpedo boats6 SubmarinesYou were saying?
>>44826641Depends on PF and how shitposty everyone is feeling.
>>44826670its shit art, I'd be salty too.
>>44826654>I think it was more that we need to get our head on straight and figure out what Arizona means to us....daughteru.Nice troll, my friend.
We should team Essex up with Sammy. Keep all the Charge! in one place.>>44826662What did he do? And for how long?
>>44826598Well, Tenryuu loved every bit of it. I'm rather impressed myself. I say over half of the girls here have seen it within 24hours of it happening. By know, i would think all of us have seen it. As to what they think of it. Well, you better ask them your self about it.
>>44826640Do you think he'd even want to draw it in the first place?
>>44826588Basically and this was back then where everyone know some mechanical shit. And how to fix stuff. So you know that her Head Engineer was a grade A DUMDASS.Hell I bet she'll toss him half way across the US when she comes back.
>>44826670nah, halley is just an all round cunt and a bad artist
>>44826670The artist is an asshole, but he feeds off negative attention more than even feelthy did so we should probably not discuss them any further.Fuck it is so awesome that feelthy is gone, fuck that faggot
hokay here's the planOccasionally as a writer you get an update which just has to be a long fucking update; there's no real point in there for voting options to be offered and if you did offer them, they're just an excuse to take a break while everyone votes on something rather inconsequential. So instead I'm just going to write a bigass update and post it in a new thread, okay?
feed me chechens
>>44826662Source: your ass.Pixelfag's been busy with IRL stuff is all there is to it. If he wants to draw something, he'll draw it, but I reaaaaaaally doubt it'll ever be of KCQ's interpretation of Essex.
>>44826752I am Ok with that.
>>44826752Fine with me, go for it.
>>44826752>Occasionally as a writer you get an update which just has to be a long fucking update; there's no real point in there for voting options to be offered and if you did offer them, they're just an excuse to take a break while everyone votes on something rather inconsequential.

>>44826752That's fine, Fap Angel. Just make sure you aren't neglecting your back.
>>44826757>busy with IRL stuffnot really, him and merc are playing a kancolle tabletop game and he's been drawing for that instead
>>44826752That's perfectly fine.
>>44826752No, that's not OK, I want that update out by the deadline even if you have to skip QC.
>>44826752Hang in there PF!>>44826757This. He's got a lot of realworld stuff to do and work on right now, I don't think he even has time for Merc's art requests, where he is really based in.
>>44826752I trust in the planefag.Planefag is lovePlanefag is life
>>44826752will this thread even be up at that point? Or should we watch the main page for the next thread?
>>44826787why do you quote all of that lad?
>>44826752sounds solidno sense giving voting options for talking if we're going to do all of them anyway, I guess.Fuck, I used to read Golem Quest, and currently read Alchemical Solutions, I'm fine with giant blocks of text.
>>44826508BULLSHIT>>44826550WHO THE FUCK IS IT>>44826559SEMPER FI MOTHERFUCKER DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS?
>>44826598Sendai's gonna night battle us in a negligee.
>>44826806>why do you quote all of that lad?BECAUSE I CAN
>>44826752Just do your best boss, most we can ask for.
>>44826797Are they playing it in real life?That would count.
>>44826814>SEMPER FI MOTHERFUCKER DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS?Yeah it means "not as good as the Army"
>>44826752Sammy shot my fucks again.Captcha is TEACaptcha is fucking KONGO....
>>44826814Face it Hate, you have two fine fine battleships who both want you to swab out their barrels and put some powder loads into them.
>>44826797The real and obvious answer is that pixelfag never dedicated to drawing for planefag. He never "left" he just stopped dropping in.
>>44826828I'd be 100% ok with sendai waifu
>>44826814I GUESS IT MEANS THEY'LL HAVE TO HOLD YOU DOWN BECAUSE YOU CAN'T FUCKING ACCEPT THE TRUTH
>>44826844Are marines still considered a special force level of training?
>Naka waifu never because already takenMake her happy, Harder.
>>44826892Hes gotta keep her alive first, m80
>>44826814>SEMPER FI MOTHERFUCKER DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANSNot like two marines have never fuck before.Oh wait I just went to a wedding for two Marines.
>>44826917He should track down Erry and Terry then.
>>44826814It looks like some one is in the nile, yea.
>>44826609I don't know. He got injured pretty badly and was forced into retirement I think. Brilliant guy though.
>>44826814Oh you are so cute when you get fussy Hate. No wonder Yamato, Iowa, and at least 5 over girls here are nearly swooning to your charms. You'll have to guess Hate. I. Won't. Tell. ^_^
>>44826986SO GO FUCK IOWA THEN
>>44826967Wait, found him. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Leigh_GatchHe ended up a vice admiral.
>>44826994Which other 5 girls?
>>44826986Yes, you'll always be loyal to her, and her to you.'Til death do you part.
>>44827008Of the service fleet though. And judge advocate general.He had a good end. An admiral is still an admiral, no matter what fleet he commands.
“The South Dakota was already known as a hard-luck ship. Some ascribed it to the state of South Dakota’s failure to follow the tradition whereby states presented their namesake dreadnoughts with a handmade silver service. The governor didn’t deliver, and the consequences were inevitable. During a shakedown run in the Chesapeake Bay, she went aground and lost electrical power. In speed trials off Casco Bay, Maine, the South Dakota collided dead center with a whale. Unable to slow down during the stringently prescribed test of the power plant, the ship ground the hapless mammal in half.”
>>44826938Well, I'd normally rate his chances against a pair of hilariously outdated -sail boats- as being fairly good, but Terror and Erebus seem to have Boss Ship powers, or something.I mean really, bomb vessels being effective against Buchanan, the leveling effect is outrageous here, son.
>>44827013He'll find out soon enough. Although I'm not counting those.... dog boats... of his. I just don't know what to think of them yet.
>>44827008“The first time the South Dakota’s main battery was tested with a full nine-gun broadside, the wave of blast pressure pushed through the passageway where Captain Thomas Gatch was standing, tearing his pants right off him. The vast power of the sixteen-inch guns required a perfect physical apparatus to ensure not only their working order but also the safety of the ship.”
>>44827057Yeah, during either Santa Cruz or Guadalcanal he ended up nearly decapitated by shell fragments and had his leg busted the fuck up, lot like settle. When asked why he didn't take cover he quoted what I said above. Absolute give no fucks commander.
>>44826864I'd a Jintsuu too desu
>>44827064>r, and the consequences were inevitable. During a shakedown run in the Chesapeake Bay, she went aground and lost electrical power. In speed trials off Casco Bay, Maine, the South Dakota collided dead center with a whale. Unable to slow down during the stringently prescribed test of the power plant, the ship ground the hapless mammal in half.”Sammy also did this
>>44827080I never said do it alone.
>>44827064I love naval traditions.Now we know we won in battleship vs whale.
>>44827087They're dogs.And one of them happens to have a fairy based-off/actually the soul of a former assassinated US president.
>>44827111Run into a whale? What else did she do other than the usual Taffy 3?
>>44827094>Shoot guns>Pants come offUSA USA USA
>>44827130What'd Taigei-chan do to you!?!
>>44827118But what about with the leveling effect?
>>44827024I'm loyal to one one way. I'm loyal to another in a completely different fucking way.
>>44827116>>44827080I mean, they're doing a major fucking spying and propaganda operation. If that's not worth an assault team, I don't know what is.
>>44827064Hah, yeah. She'll be one hell of a clumsy ship girl.
>>44827143Well her crew stole an ice cream maker off a capital ship, but that seems standard naval fare.
>>44827143Just before the whale incident someone on her crew "acquired" an ice cream making machine for her.
Yo. I know it's been said before a thousand times, but help an anon out. If we wanna do some writefaggotry, does it need to be run past PF, or do we just post it?
>>44827174Whale is my favorite ice cream flavor.
>>44827154Now I love stories like this.>>44827194Go home Japan. You are drunk.
>>44827183just DO IT
>>44827183You can just post it, but if it's retarded we'll mock you and if it doesn't make sense we'll ignore it.
>>44827183go for it, nerd
>>44827213Shia Labouf Pls go
>>44827194Funnily enough, that's kinda what they did with the evidence. Also, I think one of her sailors snuck a dog on board to be mascot, which might partially explain her affinity for the corgi's.
>>44827179People sometimes give the Sodak's shit for being smaller than the NC's and Iowas. The fact is that they were surprisingly fast and could have easily blown the Bismark's out of the water in any sort of gun duel they were stupid enough to try to fight with them.
>>44827183Either or. If you want to make sure you're not stepping on toes or contradicting canon you run it through #swq. if you don't give a fuck, just post it.
>>44827183How much does it being part of the quest continuity matter to you?
>>44827160But are they loyal to you as you are to them?Or is one loyal in the same way as the other?
>>44827183Probably show it to PF first.
>>44827183It's a free country, post it if you want.Attempting collaboration would probably increase the quality of the writing though, and also make it more likely that your fags get cameos in the real quest
>>44827228>that's kinda what they did with the evidenceGo on.
>>44827161It'd be cool if the monitors that were named after them, I02 and I03, ended up coming after them.After all, if anything, their the ultimate proof that they weren't just totally forgotten and abandoned by the UK.Besides, those monitors are cool as heck, and fought in both world wars.
Remember that goat sailor on a submarine?>>44827228>kinda what they did with the evidenceWait what.
>>44827229No, it's just that that's something sraight out of a comedy sketch. I can hear the corny slide whistle and laugh track in my head.
>>44827183Run it past Halaxis first
>>44827183Also helps to get in contact so that we can figure out if the boatsluts your using are important in someone elses story.
>>44827228No, what they did with the whale was they jarred some of the remains so that when they said "hey we hit a whale not a sandbar honest it wasn't our fault" they would have proof.They also hazed the captain about it during her crossing the line.
Well until next thread have the Akatsuki class singing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KG1h1iuuZc
>>44827160BUT ARE YOU LOYAL TO WHAT THEY WANT OUT OF YOU
>>44827309>>44827160>Insert TR-8R of sick spins here
>>44827270Halley doesn't run squat.
>>44827160Hate, she's let you have her guns.I'm pretty sure that she is going to want your "gun" eventually.
>>44827270This is the first time I've ever heard of Halaxis being any sort of gatekeeper for writefags.
