Still dumping unhealthy hours into the Division. Just hit Dark Zone level 30! Woooo!I'm... I'm losing control of my life.Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Infinite+Stars+QuestOther Quests: http://pastebin.com/sYpqmWZgYou are Captain SAMANTHA WELLINGS, a newly minted captain of the Centauri Accord!Currently, you were waiting for Lida and other nerds in the data center to fully sift and analyze all the information that you "borrowed" from the Trade Guild so that you could pinpoint the source of a seafood smuggling operation. As a result, you allowed your crew to take some time off, but restricted them to the Eridanus Station only.However, one of your most loyal subordinates, Tank, seemed to be actually DISOBEYING orders, considering he was trying to take the orbital elevator down to the planet's surface. You couldn't ever imagine Tank ever disobeying an order, though!>Go confront Tank.>Just continue to observe silently.>Other

>>46126358>Just continue to observe silently.
>>46126358>Just continue to observe silently.Time for another episode of Sam's World: Rogue Trader Edition!
>>46126358And Tank just continues to stare.And stare.AND STARE.Then again, given the helmet he was wearing, there wasn't much else he could do. But you could tell that he was REALLY MEANING IT right now. And the poor guard bends and snaps like a tree branch."A-all right! You can go! Just... just don't tell anybody, all right?"Tank nods and gives a salute, his metal gauntlet clinking off his helmet."Well the totally expected thing totally happened." Amy rolls her eyes."Should we follow him?" Elsa asks.Well, regardless of what was said or done, this was pretty damning. Tank was disobeying one of your orders!>Tail him!>STOP RIGHT THERE>Other
>>46127102>Tail him!Sneaking mission
>>46127102>STOP RIGHT THERE
>>46127102>>Tail him!"maybe there are kittens needs extraction or something. We'll tail him for now"
>>46127102>Tail him!We must find out Tank's secrets, so that we can buy him an idol poster to put on the inside of his shield.
>>46127102>>Tail him!We got the Producer didn't we?
>Tail him!We must know!
So how long do you think it'll take for Sam to forget to put on her uniform because it feels like she's wearing 'nothing at all'?
>>46127176What kind of idols would Tank like though?
>>46127102>>Tail him!Commence virtuous mission!
>>46127240Julie, then he could have a poster of a shield holding idol on his shield. It's a double shield. Even if one shield is made of paper.
>>46127226If it feels like nothing at all, would she just assume it's already on when putting on her uniform and then walk into the bridge wearing nothing underneath?
>>46127102"Well, we tail him, of course!" You whisper back, now genuinely curious. After all, Tank revealed so little about his personal life, it was just too tempting a chance not to take. You wait for Tank to board the elevator and the door to slide shut before striding forward. The guard at the checkpoint turns to begin to tell you off, but the built in IFF in your suit immediately signals to him your rank and he immediately stands to attention."H-how can I help you, Captain?" The guard stammers."Just some official business on the surface." You say simply with a slight grin. "That won't be a problem, would it?""No, no, of course not!" The guard shakes his head quickly and steps aside, letting you pass. You wave Amy and Elsa to follow you and you all board the second elevator car down. Now, orbital elevator rides were not anything special, and were a pretty routine occurrence in your line of work. However, the only planet you've only really ever been on was Earth, and even though Eridanus was a mostly Earth-like planet, there were enough differences that it was just an amazing vista on first glance. Down below, you could see vast, sapphire blue oceans, with a pair of large emerald continents. There wasn't even a single indication of a desert or any dry spot. Eridanus' lushness was one of the reasons it was designated as the Accord's Frontier capital. "Heh, gotta admit, it looks real nice from up here." Amy grins. "Wonder how it looks on the ground?""Well, the city itself probably wouldn't look too different from what we see on Earth." Elsa shrugs. "As the capital, Eridanus still enjoys regular contact with the civilized territories.""Ah, so we still get flush toilets and not holes in the ground. Gotcha." Amy nods.You snicker a bit at Amy's comment."Well, just remember, we're going down on official business, so no funny shenanigans, okay?""Okaaaaay." Both Amy and Elsa chime.>I'm taking your word on this.>Okay, what are you planning?>Other
>>46127638>Okay, what are you planning?
>>46127638>>Okay, what are you planning?

"All right, spill it, girls. What are you planning?" You grunt.>Roll 1d20

>>46128193>>46128191>>46128187This is gonna bite us in the ass ain't itI'm betting it's gonna be mafia. And explosions.
>>46128220But, we'd need to spend just as much time as him to get to a point where we could beat him, and I doubt Merc will slow down to let us catch up.
>>46128254A bedwarmer? A young cadet with spirit? New outfit?
>>46128279Maybe it's pets.
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>46128149
>>46128268That's what group gankings are for.
>>46128149"I don't know what you're talking about!" Amy says. "You're obviously just being way too paranoid, Cap!""Yeah, totally unfounded accusations!" Elsa nods in agreement. "Where's your proof?"Damn, they were right. All you had now were suspicions, but you didn't really have any sort of foundation to pursue them on. Plus, they kinda outnumbered you 2-1 in here, so trying to get physical probably wouldn't end well. "Fine, whatever." You shake your head. Finally, the elevator car reaches the ground to the Station's dirtside facility. Like the Station above, the ground facility was an Accord military installation in all respects, though really it was just a glorified customs checkpoint to manage traffic to and from the Station. Even though Tank came down before you, you weren't that far behind, and already you caught sight of his massive bulk heading for the front doors, drawing the curious eyes of the passing facility personnel.Wait...Was he heading for the front doors?To the OUTSIDE?Where the civilians were?!>Keep tailing!>You gotta stop him!>Other
>>46128365>Keep tailing!We gotta see where this goes.

Rolled 13, 4, 1 = 18 (3d20)>>46129062>Is Merc gonna roll for Tank's perception?That's a good idea!
>>46129126Tank has not very good perceptions. Needs rear-view mirrors for his armour.

>>46129126that 1>CAW IM A CROW.
>>46129126We hid in a fucking cardboard box, we are that effective.
>>46129126Thankfully, Tank doesn't seem to notice your TOTALLY INCONSPICUOUS TAILING of him. True, you were still in uniform and everything, but Tank was still in his armor and was attracting FAR more attention than you could ever achieve. Dozens of curious stares followed Tank that he either wasn't aware of, or just didn't care as he headed for his destination. It looked to be... some kind of store? Looked to a kind of mall or something. You glance at Amy and Elsa, who just shrug.Well, you went all this way already...You try to ignore all of the augmented reality "smart ads" that keep getting projected directly into your eyes. Everything from makeup, to fashion, and even idol concert tickets! Was nothing sacred anymore? There's so much holojunk clouding your eyes you actually almost lose track of Tank, up until you see him stop at what appears to be a toy store.A toy store?Well, Tank was kinda childish in his own ways, but you never figured he'd be THAT childish? However, as he enters, line of sight is broken by the numerous shelves, as well as the crowd of children inside. If you wanted to get a closer look, well, you'd have to get a lot closer...>Just wait for him outside.>Time to go in!>Other

>>46129310>Time to go in!Let us penetrate the toy store's well-used entrance with our curious bodies.

Rolled 20, 11, 13 = 44 (3d20)>>46129310"All right girls, we're going in." You whisper to Amy and Elsa."Isn't that a little... weird?" Amy whispers. "Grown women like us going into a toy store for kids?""Honestly, with you two it's hard to tell the difference." You quip."Ha, ha." Amy and Elsa roll their eyes in unison."Can't deny what's true!" You chuckle as you stride into the store as casually as possible. Fortunately, the adults inside were too concerned with making sure their kids were touching everything on the shelves to pay much heed to you and your two crew, and you slowly head to the back of the store where the counter is. There, you see Tank towering over the counter and an rather elderly looking clerk, who oddly enough didn't seem intimidated by him at all. The clerk was clearly talking to Tank, but you couldn't really hear anything at this distance, so you creep a little closer...>Roll 1d20

>>46129637However, as you watch, your spine begins to tingle. That familiar tingle when Amy and Elsa were up to no good. It was a mistake to let them stay behind you! Acting purely on instinct, you duck just when Amy and Elsa's outstretched arms push forward. If you had stayed still, they definitely would have shoved you directly into Tank's back."Aha..." You turn around, your eyes glinting with fury. "Thought you could get one up on me, eh?""Um, well..." Amy backs off. "It was just a joke! Honest!""We meant nothing by it!" Elsa laughs nervously as she tries to back off."Oh no, you're not getting away that easily!" You snatch them both by the collars and pull them back to you. You notice them visibly sweating now. Good.>INTERROGATE>PUNISH>HUMILIATE>Other

>>46130150Dohohoho, you know the PERFECT way to resolve this situation!"Well, there is ONE thing you can do for me in lieu of formal punishment..." You grin. "W-wha-"Amy never has the chance to finish when you pull them forward and the push them right at Tank, the two of them stumbling forward and slamming right into his armored back. And ever so slowly, Tank's head creaks around like a possessed doll in a horror story. He then fully turns around to tower over the now whimpering Amy and Elsa. You swear the optical lenses on his helmet narrow as he GLARES at them. You see him quickly but politely snatch a wrapped package and stuff it into his carrying pack before returning his attention to Amy and Elsa. He stares, wonder what the hell the two of them were doing here."We were here with the Cap! She led us out here!" Amy tries to explain.You duck behind a shelf as Tank instinctively looks around to scan the shop, and then looks back at Amy, totally unconvinced."I'm not lying! Honest! She's here!""We're telling the truth!" Elsa blubbers.Tank continues to glare at them. Of course they'd try to find a way to weasel out of this. They were just trying to say this to throw him off!"But she's-"Tank has clearly had enough of their whining, as he reaches down and grabs them both by the back of their collars. As Chief of Security, it was also part of his duties to administer discipline if it was required. "But but DOUBLE STANDARDS!" Amy whines. "What're you doing out here!??!"Obviously, he was on important, CLASSIFIED business, of which they were not. "B-b-b-ut-!"But Tank has clearly had enough of this. With both girls still grabbed by the collar, Tank starts dragging them out of the store, much to the confusion of all of the patrons and to the elderly clerk's amusement."NOOOO! CAP! HEEEEELP!" Amy wails."WE'RE SORRRRYYYY!" Elsa cries.>Maybe you should help them out...>This is the grave they dug for themselves.>Other

So what do you think Tank will make them do?Clean his/her power armor?
>>46130973Tank is a guy.He was reffered to as he several times by Sam
>>46130973Wash the ship.By hand.In space.With only two small sponges and a bucket of water.
>>46131008And their oxygen mixture has a touch of helium in it, so they'll be squeaking while they work.
>>46131008>>46131025And their jumpsuits are slightly see-through.
>>46130751You give a little smug wave to Amy and Elsa as they're dragged away, and they both give you poisonous glares but are powerless to really do anything. Tank continues to drag them away, attracting the attention of all the of pedestrians around them, wondering what the hell two grown women who were being dragged by a massive armored giant could possibly mean. Happily enough, Amy and Elsa's faces were redder than a sun going supernova. You then quickly make your way back to the orbital elevator. With the dual load Tank was carrying, and his generally slow pace, it was a simple matter to beat him there. Then all you had to do was ride it up and return to the Gullinbursti.You go the bridge and lean back in your command chair, a wide smile on your face."I take it something good happened, Captain?" Bradford asks as he passes by."Justice was served, Bradford." You say happily. "Justice was served.""I see." Bradford nods. "I'm also getting reports that Amy and Elsa got thrown into the brig for 'unauthorized behavior.' Do you know anything about that?" "Huh, no idea." You feign confusion. "I'll check it out later.""Of course, Captain." And that's when your comm beeps. You get a text message from Tank asking you meet him... at your quarters?!?!What... what could he possibly want to meet you there instead of the bridge for?!"Captain, are you all right?" Bradford frowns in concern.>Meet tank at your quarters.>Tell him to meet you at the bridge.>Other

>>46131109"Yeah, I'm fine." You assure Bradford. "I'll be heading to my quarters for a bit.""Understood, Captain." Bradford nods.You quickly make your way up to your quarters, where you see Tank already at the door, loyally waiting for you like a dog waiting for its master."Tank." You greet him casually.Tank nods at you. "Well, uh, this is a bit unconventional, but come on in." You say a bit nervously as you hit the door control. Your door slides open and the both of you step in. "It's not exactly very furnished yet so it might look a bit bare..."Tank shrugs. It's not like his quarters were any different.Guess he had a point there."So, um." You sit behind your desk, while Tank still stands at attention. "What's this about?"Tank shows the brig transfer report, indicating that Amy and Elsa were currently incarcerated in there. Apparently they were saying that they had left the station on your orders...>Tell the truth.>Don't tell the truth.>Other

>>46131395"Well, that IS true." You nod. "They were actually helping me tail you after you left the Station."Tank stiffens. You KNEW about that?"Of course I did! What kind of Captain would I be if I didn't!" You huff. Tank scratches his helmet. So does that mean Amy and Elsa shouldn't be punished?"Well uh, what were you gonna make them do?"Tank shrugs. Maybe just make them clean the whole armory by hand. He was always pretty straightforward like that. >They still totally deserve it.>I think they've learned their lesson.>Other
>>46131559>>They still totally deserve it.

>>46131559>>I think they've learned their lesson.I think we showed them who was the boss around here already. The sheer humiliation of being manhandled like 2 kids was probably enough.

>>46131679Because we already embarrased them by having Tank drag them all the way through town and the space station.
>>46131559>They still totally deserve it.
>>46131692>Sci-Fi Maid outfits with HEXAGON patterns.
>>46131692Sure or swim suits, or BUNNY SUITS!>>46131698We have to make them suffer.
>>46131679Well, mostly I just don't want too much bad blood between us and them. This wasn't something that malicious, and was mostly just a harmless prank, especially when we 'pwned' them during the bath scene. As such, I don't see the need to give them actual punishments for it. No need to foster more reasons for retaliation when we don't need it.
>>46131667Something like Maid outfits.
>>46131667Agreed.Sam should wear one too
>>46131784Bunny Outfits are more embarrassingly
>>46131829I'm not disagreeing with you.
>>46131829A more important question is how many maid outfits did Parker bring with her?
>>46131559"No, I think they learned their lesson." You sigh as you lean back in your seat. "And that doesn't changed the fact that YOU disobeyed orders, too."Tank nods. He's well aware of that and is willing to accept any punishment.ANY punishment?Well, there's time to worry about that later."Well, anyways, why did you go down there against orders in the first place?" You ask.Tank reaches into his pack and brings out the wrapped package from before and puts it on your desk and gently slides it to you. You look up at him, and he nods, urging you to open it yourself.With some anticipation and a little bit of caution, you slowly tear the wrapping paper open......to reveal a scale model of the Selene, your first ship. You can tell it was custom made, with every little detail loving crafted in, down to the battle damage she had suffered up until the end of her career. This definitely had have cost quite a sum to make."Tank, you... you really got this for me?" You blink.Tank nods. You seemed sad at having to leave the Selene, and he thought it'd be nice to have a reminder of her. "I... I don't know.... thank you, Tank." You smile as you look at the little Selene. It looked like it would just take off from the table and fly away at any moment.>You know, I changed my mind. You're off the hook. For now.>You realize this doesn't change my mind, right?>Other

>>46131862>You know, I changed my mind. You're off the hook. For now.>>46131870That's worse for Bradford, he'll have to go get a new sweater.
>>46131862>>You know, I changed my mind. You're off the hook. For now.Oh... for me?... *sniff*... Thank you Tank.
>>46131862>You know, I changed my mind. You're off the hook.>Hug the Tank
>>46131862>>You realize this doesn't change my mind, right?Just stay there for half an hour or something.Also, HUGS
>>46131862>>Other>You're making really hard to punish you tank.
>>46131862>You realize this doesn't change my mind, right?Maybe have him show his face also apply hugs
>>46131862"I wouldn't be a good Captain if I let my senior officers break my rules, especially doing favors for me."
>>46131862Merc, what about the write in?
>>46131862>>You realize this doesn't change my mind, right?The thought is nice, but JUSTICE does not make exceptions
>>46131862Hug the Tank
>>46131862>You realize this doesn't change my mind, right?Regardless of reasons, he did disobey orders.
>>46131862>You realize this doesn't change my mind, right?How can a ship be considered orderly if the chief of security disobeys orders?
>>46131862>>You know, I changed my mind. You're off the hook. For now.If we can be nice to the girls, then we can definitely be nice to Tank.
>>46131862>>You realize this doesn't change my mind, right?>>46131892This.
>>46131870Tank loved the sweater so much, he had a suit custom made to look like one.
>>46131953I'm surprised we did, I thought the dress up/humiliation won?
>>46131862>>46131892This.They learned their lesson but that doesn't mean we can't mess with them
>>46131969>I'm surprised we did, I thought the dress up/humiliation won?From looking at the update that didn't win. So no, no humiliating maid outfits.
>>46131862You stand up, round your desk, and give Tank a great big hug, pressing your cheek against his breastplate. It was surprisingly warm. Tank hesitates, not expecting the move, but gingerly and awkwardly returns the hug."You realize this doesn't change my mind, right?" You say with a smile, still hugging Tank.Tank understands."And we'll have to figure out something for Amy and Elsa too. They don't need to spend time in the brig, but they tried to prank me, so I need to assert my dominance over them."Tank suggests that maybe Elizabeth could help with that. Hm, that wasn't a bad idea. Those Intel types always knew how to make people squirm. But what do for Tank...>ANY SUGGESTIONS?
>>46132057The maid outfits the other anons mentioned.
>>46131862>>You know, I changed my mind. You're off the hook. For now.
>>46132057No armor suit for one shift.
>>46132057Maids are not lewd enough. Go Bunny Suits or Cat Girl
>>46132057Bunny Outfits.They will be literal Bridge Bunnies.
>>46132057Pink power armor for 24 hours, no hiding.
>>46132075>>46132071>>46132087>>46132088>Putting Tank in a bunny/maid outfit
>>46132091er... for tank I mean, for the girls... how about 1 hour with natalia with no restrictions. (or is that pushing it?)
>>46132057>>46132075Adding to this.Tank wearing Hot Rod pink. Maybe Helmetless
>>46132083Naw, make him paint his armor with paint to look like a completely casual outfit is better.
>>46132057Have him show what he looks like
>>46132057I gotta go with maids, especially a sci-fi maid, but I'd be fine with a bunny suit.
>>46132101You know it will look cute and Sam is sadistic.
>>46132101I actually missed that last line. BUT I STAND BY MY DECISION. WE WILL HAVE TANK IN A MAID OUTFIT, EVEN IF IT'S WORN OVER HIS ARMOR.
>>46132101>we just put a bunny ear headband over his helmet.
>>46132106Anon please--by the time they come out of that medical office they'll either be Rule 63'd or be formless flesh blobs with random appendages.
>>46132075Bridge Bunny Outfits.Like, bunnies but with uniforms
>>46132141I don't think Merc would let anything too terrible happen to them.
>>46132057We put childish Space Ranger decals on his armor.It's temporary but he'll need to use some elbow grease to remove eventually.
>>46132186Bunny outfit with no, fish nets.For shame anon, for shame.
>>46132141hehehehe... maybe just have them test the two concoctions sam's already downed, see if they have the same effect...
>>46132141>formless flesh blobs with random appendagesNatalia isn't AM dude. Or is she?
>>46132210I want this to happen
>>46132057Well, it looks like things have boiled down to these choices.>BUNNIES>MAIDS>WHY NOT BOTH?
>>46132250>WHY NOT BOTH?
>>46132250>>WHY NOT BOTH?
>>46132190OOOOHH!!! That's perfect! Make him paint his armor to look like one of those characters from a movie or show! To infinity and beyond!!!
>>46132228considering natalia's image source material they're more likely to end up with extra eyes and arcane powers.
>>46132250>>WHY NOT BOTH?How can we have one without the other?!
>>46132106>>46132141>>46132172If you wanted to be real mean about it just have Natalia hand them two glasses of water saying that testing her new "concoction" is their punishmentthen sit back and watch the emotional breakdown unfold
>>46132250>WHY NOT BOTH?plus maybe those two potions...
>>46132250>why not both?
>>46132250>>WHY NOT BOTH?>implying it was ever a choice
>>46132141>>46132172>Natalia's other experiments were 'inspired' by a certain genemodded idol and a human/alien hybrid.
>>46132336>All alien and genemod knowledge locked behind corporate and government doors>Wants to recreate them in her lab>Sell them off to the public for knowledge's sake
>>46132261>Arcane powersShe awakens their psychic potential?
since both seems to be winning... does sam pick who wears what or do we force them to choose which outfit they wear?
Just realized something. We're half screwed if we face off against a ship that has ECM, CIWS, or some form of active protection that messes with our missiles.
>>46132449At that point, when do the Ethereals show up and congratulate us on transcending before abducting our newly "awakened" teammates to create Avatars of their own?
>>46132281Wow, kind of reminds me of that weird manga trench flowers.Maids in trench warfare.One of the weirder manga's I read
>>46132449that could be fun too...
>>46132250"Eheheheehhehe." You giggle as thoughts and pictures filter through you mind. "EHEHEHEHEHEHEHE."And for the first time in possibly ever, Tank begins to fell just a tad nervous.Just a tad."Don't worry, things will become clear all too soon." You giggle. "Just go let Amy and Elsa out of the brig."Tank nods, salutes with loud CLANG, and quickly shuffles out of your quarters.WELL. You suddenly had a very busy day...>Go find Elizabeth to hash out details about the "punishment". >Go see Lida about the data analysis.>Other
>>46132541>>Go find Elizabeth to hash out details about the "punishment".
>>46132541>Go find Elizabeth to hash out details about the "punishment".
>>46132541>Go find Elizabeth to hash out details about the "punishment".Strike while the iron is hot.
>>46132541>Go find Elizabeth to hash out details about the "punishment".Priorities!
>>46132541>>Go find Elizabeth to hash out details about the "punishment".If I remember correctly, Amy didn't like the 'slut suit' that was her uniform. Looks like she's finally going to get what she wanted.
>>46132541>>Go find Elizabeth to hash out details about the "punishment".Eliza! Ze outfits must be perfect!
>>46132541>Go see Lida about the data analysis.We can save the punishment for a line-crossing ceremony.
>>46132591We're in space. Is there a line-crossing to be done any more?
>>46132607Maybe here certain routes of FTL travel count for line-crossing.
Well, if we run out of bunny ear headbands, we could always go for cat ears.Wonder if hardlight ears are a thing...
>>46132639Forcing young spacemen and spacewomen to mop the the ship with an actual mop to clean up space rain.Shoving several greased up men or women into a closet. Then having a farting competition.Rowing the space boat to capture the flag (a dirty dirty underwear worn by the dirtiest able seaman)
>>46132652Going by the session on the Guild space station, hardlight tech seems to be a secret technology, not for sale on the market yet.
>>46132713True, but fucking around with multi-billion dollar tech for petty purposes is always fun.
I wonder how this will backfire
>>46132541You head down Elizabeth's temporary quarters and knock on the door. "You can come in!" You hear her voice chime.You enter to see Elizabeth working studiously on her datapad. She looks up to see you and smiles."Oh, Captain, what brings you here?""Well, it turns out that I need to figure out some extrajudicial punishment for a couple of my crew." You say. "Amy, Elsa, and Tank for disobeying orders."Oh?" Elizabeth raises an eyebrow, her intrest piqued. "What kind of NJP are you thinking?""I was thinking about making them wear something embarrassing." You say.And that's when Elizabeth's eyes flash. "I know just the thing!" She grins. "Just leave it to me!">Wow, that's very efficient of you.>Um, is there something I should know...?>Other
>>46132794>>Um, is there something I should know...?If it's maid outfits, tell us right now, Parker.
>>46132794>>Um, is there something I should know...?
>>46132794>>Wow, that's very efficient of you.
>>46132794>>Wow, that's very efficient of you.What do you have...and also>>Um, is there something I should know...?
>>46132794>OtherYou wouldn't mind if you... um... let us try it on first...To make sure it's properly embarrassing.
>>46132794>Um, is there something I should know...?
>>46132794>Wow, that's very efficient of you.
>>46132794>Um, is there something I should know...?>That bodysuit Parker
>>46132794Was Parker's suit influenced by the plugsuits of Asuka and Mari?
>>46132971Well, the girl that Elizabeth's art is based on DID come from Eva...>>46132794"Um, is there something I should know?" You blink."Oh, well..." Elizabeth reddens a bit. "Sewing is one of my many hobbies...""Sewing?" You raise an eyebrow."Maid outfits, specifically." Elizabeth laughs nervously.PERFECT."I think that would be suitable!" You nod."Even for Tank?" Elizabeth gasps. "Especially for Tank." You confirm."Oh, oh... well, it's a good thing I got all their sizes beforehand!" Elizabeth beams.Wait, she... already has their sizes...?"Did.. .did you get the sizes of everybody?" You ask nervously."The entire crew, obviously! I have to be thorough!" Elizabeth nods."Wait, that means that... that... she measured you...">SQUAD BROKEN>You think I can get one for um... "private reasons?">Don't involve me in this evil!>Other
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>46133061>>SQUAD BROKENRollan for SAN loss
>>46133061>OtherJoin in, so that no grudges are borne.
>>46133061>You think I can get one for um... "private reasons?"
>>46133061>>SQUAD BROKENAs our mind breaks, we get a flash of clarity. That means she has measurements for Bradford's maid uniform.
>>46133061>>You think I can get one for um... "private reasons?"
>>46133093>>46133089>>46133082Guys, don't you want Sam to get a maid outfit?
>>46133061>SQUAD BROKEN"But...when? How?"
>>46133061>OtherEven Tank? How the hell did she manage to catch him out of his armor?
>>46133100Not really. I mean we;ll get one eventually or have one of the girls pull a revenge stunt.
>>46133061>>You think I can get one for um... "private reasons?"Always nice for a disguise.
>>46133061>>You think I can get one for um... "private reasons?"She must swear into secrecy about it. Nobody must know.

>>46133146It means the end of the thread when Sam faints.
>>46133061>SQUAD BROKENSam go berserk!
>>46133146It means we'll crawl around on the floor while yelling about being under fire.
>>46133162Don't you want to see that?
>>46132794>>46132808>>46132822>>46132830What these guys said.>[Citation Needed]
>>46133100It'll happen eventually. I just find this the more hilarious option
>>46133146i'M afraid it will stop the dress up.
>>46133177I'd rather see Sam in a maid outfit.
>>46133187What makes you say that.Also why would Sam want to wear one, she's the one preparing the punishment not reciving it
>>46133225 She wants to surprise tank in half of one
>>46133262You mean something like this?
>>46133313Terrible picture. Boobs way too big.
>>46133313dammit, the next time we're punishing them will be the naked apron.
>>46133061"You um, think I can get one for um... 'private reasons?'" You ask nervously. "Of course! I'll keep it just between us, obviously!" Elizabeth giggles as she puts a finger to her lips. "I can get started on that right away!""Please do." You nod. This was gonna be GREAT.Suddenly, your comms beep as Lida tries to contact you. "Captain." Lida says calmly. "We've decrypted and analyzed the data. I think we know where the smuggling ring is located."Well well well...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week! Don't forget KanColle on Friday!
>>46133359Thanks for the run, Merc.
>>46133359Thanks for running, Merc!>>46133327So more like this?
>>46133359Thanks for running Merc. Have a good week.
Need more maids.
So who'd be a better base for meido Sam: Nightmare of Solomon or Gotta Go Fast?
>>46133381Yeah. I was mostly speaking of Saya since she's utterly flat but Sam as well.
>>46133463Actually, Merc's been using a pic of the Very Merry Month of May, so let's go with her.
