A strange sense of unreality slips over you as Arizona drags you into the room by your wrist, pinned in her viselike grip. This is fine, you think.This is fine. You seem to drift over the polished floorboards as Arizona takes up position by Goto, bumping into him with her hip, sending him bumping into Kongou till they both have shifted to share center stage. She lifts her free hand up and gives the camera a little wave, then smiles that shy, sweet smile you've only seen once or twice.You find yourself staring eye-to-glassy-eye with the webcam; the tiny little portal that's beaming your image to literal millions of people. You're halfway through a silent prayer for the server to crash from overload when Arizona raises your right hand for you and waves it. “Hi,” you say intelligently. “I'm Rear Admiral Ryan Settle, United States Navy, and my career is over.” And then you laugh, freely and naturally, because it's so gravely true that it becomes funny again. Arizona flips your palm towards her. “And this is BB-39, Arizona.” Arizona waves and smiles again. The steady torrent of chat queries has slowed to a trickle. The Internet itself seems to be drawing breath. And then they unload. >what are they asking

>>46257116Your favorite girl.
>>46256787Can Shiki kill shipgirls? Discuss.

>>46257150Nonsense.Shipgirls aren't servants, and they are not bound by command seals.I doubt they're even covered in prana circuits.So Shiki can't kill them.This is according to official PSIA documents.

>>46257185Spectacular way to really throw shit in the fan re:Shigure or re:Naka, really. RFV publicly stating they are traitors/abyssals and asking for them to be returned. The whole thing seen live by everyone watching the stream.

>>46256787Arizona, what's it like being back in girl-form compared to your original ship form?

>>46256787Essex said she'd be back by now after taking care of some 'things'. Where is she?
>>46257317She dragged Settle in to translate.
>>46257257What, are you actually asking us to ask OOC shit?
>>46256787Arizona, do you still have a bomb in your stack?
We really need to shitpost and copy paste a roonie more to really quantify that original stream chat experience.

>>46257334LE TOUCAN HAS ARRIVED
>>46257212Shipgirls can sink, therefore Shiki can make'em sink. Easy enough.
>>46257327Let's be honest though.How well known is it, outside of yokosuka and USN scuttlebutt, that Ari is a mute?
>>46257257It's that 'my career is over' bit that would catch my attention.But now that you've brought it up:>Hi, Arizona. What is it like, being human?>Kongou sung for us, a trigger for a diplomatic shitstorm though it was... I'm sure you have a lovely singing voice as well, Arizona...>I go to the memorial every day, and say a prayer for victory and peace. Stay strong, Arizona.

I wonder what settle and Goto reaction will be if this turn out to be sanctioned and everyone forgot to tell them?
>>46257950I think this will turn out well. It will be a positive PR move - after a great but difficult victory against the abbyssals, the people sees their hero doing everyday things, with adorable ship girls.

>>46258000Still better strategy than the Axis. Keep morale high and knowledge inside of the nation instead of squandering it.
>>46258027And the next day is known as the Battle of LA...Captcha is catus...

No clue how will planefag work all this chaos into the quest, but this has been refreshing as fuck.
On an unrelated note, it turns out military procurement can actually be on time and under budget.>http://www.defensenews.com/story/defense/land/army/2016/03/24/jltv-program-cost-estimate-drops-6-billion/82224406/
>>46256787>>what are they asking@Ari: could you speak at my graduation? Please?What. Someone's gotta be nice to the old battlewagon.
>>46258082But anon, PF has been dead all along. This has all been a hallucination caused by expired navy coffee.
>>46258086Indeed. It would be the cherry on top if someone got banned for something. Would just make it so very meta and complete.
>>46257801Oh no, I failed to complete one objective. If you listen closely, you can hear me playing a dirge on my tiny violin. Your crumbling empire is of little interest to me. In days past, we fought, and you won, and it was done fairly. I never hated you for it.
>>46256787Some mood setting music for that special moment:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnD76ZLWEz8

>>46256787When you have kids will you and the Admiral name them after cities or more human names, though I guess something like Paris would do both.
>>46256787WE SHOULD'VE HIT YOU WITH ANOTHER 2 FUCKING BOMBS!
>>46258173Not quite the special moment I was angling for, but this works too.Also, for Settle, on a scale of 1 to 10, how accurately does this song describe you?:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVkD4lgXTEU
>>46258126And an entire nation was built upon it. You failed catastrophically. In fact, you are only barely known in America because of that, not because you got your arse stuck in pack ice and your crew turned into wendigoes.On the other hand, Canada remembers you well. They've been searching for you for the past GOD KNOWS HOW LONG.
>>46258126This crumbling empire would still kick your ass 10 ways to Sunday if you ever bothered to engage in ship-to-ship combat against anything but lone escorts or transports.But you're a coward and traitor, so you'll just hide like the rat you are.
>>46258126Well, at least it helps to drive home the crucial point.You'll always be a British ship.
The first one, seen four or five times, is - You blink. Arizona nudges you with her elbow. You blink again, because they're actually asking about you. Specifically, speculating on the dimensions of your equipment. And Goto's. And whether your missile will fit in his VLS. But for the most part, they all seem to revolve around matters of overall volume. You look the camera dead in the lens. “The United States Navy will neither confirm nor deny the presence of nuclear weapons aboard our vessels,” you intone from memory. The chat *explodes,* short reactions coming so thick and fast that the server seems to stutter for a second. “They waaaanna know how big *yours* is, Teitoku,” Kongou purrs as she rolls her head on Goto's shoulder. “Shall we find o-”“The JMSDF,” you cut in, “is a peaceful force that exists solely to defend the lands and people of Japan, and so they have traditionally eschewed purely offensive weaponry.” Kongou clutches up on Goto's arm defensively, giving you a scowl before turning her eyes back to the screen. “Uh, what... what's a too-hoo?” She looks up at Goto. “Uh...” he shrugs. “I don't know what that is.”
>>46256787M4 SHERMAN WHEN?
>>46258243"Searching". The sons of England never cared about us and they still don't. If they want to plant their flag on my corpse and pretend they own me for it, they're welcome to waste their breath. >>46258254I'm certain the English said much the same of your minutemen when you adopted Native American tactics. I know my strengths, just as you know yours. Don't pretend you'd go rushing to your death in my position.
>>46258269>Uh, what... what's a too-hoo?SIDEs
>>46258269>“Uh, what... what's a too-hoo?” ABSOLUTE MADMEN

“AND HE WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING LEWD WITH ONE ANYWAY, BECAUSE HE'S GOT KONGOU!” Kongou bellows at the webcam sternly upon seeing the next spate of replies. “TILL DESS DO US PART~” The look on Goto's face says that Dess might come sooner than she might think. Arizona squints at the screen, then looks up at you quizzically - now they want YOUR opinion. You squint at the webcam. “This is a trap,” you say after consideration. “No matter what I say it's going to piss off the secondaries.” The chat devolves into frantic into engrish babble; "oh snap" in the local vernacular. “Oh!” Kongou says. “I think they want to know what your favorite episode is of that anime you were talking about-”“Touhou isn't an anime,” you reply. And just like that, the word are out of your mouth, floating free and clear, and there's not a god damned thing you can do to call it back. “They mean the game. Uh, the one with Sanae in it? I don't remember the name. Whole ship had a tournament. I came in third - Lunatic, only used one bomb.” Goto, Kongou and Arizona are *all* staring at you right now. “Two weeks under EMCON do strange things to a crew's minds,” you say sternly. “Now why don't you answer a question, huh?” Soon the steady flow of queries seems to have centered on Arizona. Permutations of “how many fights have you been in” start flooding the chatlog.
>>46258140I REGRET NOTHING!
>>46258269>“The United States Navy will neither confirm nor deny the presence of nuclear weapons aboard our vessels,” you intone from memory.GODDAMMIT, DEME! Now I need to go clean off my fucking monitor and see if root beer can be drained from a keyboard!
>>46258290And you still an useless traitor of a Brit.
>>46258303>TILL DESS DO US PART~”Oh God.
“She had her first battle just last week!” Kongou declares, cutting behind Goto's back to pop her head out next to Arizona, flinging an arm around her shoulder. “It was great! She accepted me as her sempai, and with her strength anchoring the line, I used my superior speed to drive them towards her like a hammer and a pincer movement!” She's almost bouncing, giddy to brag about her victory. “We whipped their butts and SANK THEIR BATTLESHIP, DESS!” Kongou leans on Arizona heavily enough to make her stagger a little, peering at the screen. “Oh! How do you like it here in Japan, Arizona?!” She smiles and nods and clasps a hand over heart. “Oh oh!” Kongou says, warming to her new role as call screener. “Hamburgers or donuts?” Arizona thinks for a second, then smiles and nods - *yes.*“Are you and yankeetoku a couple?”Arizona just tilts her head forward and gives the webcam a Look. The chat is going apocolyptic, and the commentary is getting more suggestive by the *second,* people rhapsodizing about her cold eyes looking upon them with disdain. So are the questions, but at least Kongou is - “Would you suck their rooster?” Kongou asks - then laughs. “Wouldn't it sound funny if it crowed in your mouth? Haha! Next question~” Yes. Your career is over. It's completely over. The webcam's glassy eye looks like a gun barrel now. “Hey Arizona, why don't you-” Kongou pauses. You focus on the chatlog again:>why doesn't she talk>SAY SOMETHING>can you sing?>kongou can sing can you sing?>she doesn't say a word>are you really a battleship with tits that small>SHOW TITS>still leaking oil so she's already wet>why doesn't she talk?>say something to us please we want to hear your voice!>SHARPIE TEST SHARPIE TEST SHARPIE TESTArizona has suddenly clammed up; she's gone stiff, and her hand has slid down to grip yours white-knuckle tight.

>>46258338[ ] Let her answer. We've spent enough time trying to speak *for* her. We have to stop treating her like a shrine to he protected. She's a damn battleship.At least, I think that's the lesson we learned earlier.
>>46258420Who handles crew reassignments in the USN? We already have a two-star 'participating' in this quest (though he sure as fuck is not our go-to guy for this, he has his own responsibilities to look after, he won't risk torpedoing his own career to satisfy anon's whims).

I don't remember the name. Whole ship had a tournament. I came in third - Lunatic, only used one bomb.” Bull. Fucking. Shit. You haven't even done a 1cc, let alone even play the games (even on Easy), because they were too "hard and unfair" and "cheap pattern memorization".

>>46258338>[X] Make up an excuse.Oh fine.
>>46258479This'd be a sweet idea, but is there going to be a concert after all? Naka's gone full Hot Topic.

>>46258463Stressed out? I'm pretty sure she wants to vent it out.If she suddenly talks then we panic
>>46258452They couldn't. He'd have to be a pilot to be up for command of the Enterprise. Federal law--Congress passed it back in the 20s to make sure that the "battleship admirals" couldn't castrate/control the carrier aviation types.
>>46257833Every time I see this picture, all I can think is how much Hate needs a goddamn haircut.
>>46258452That's in 2025, AFAIK. Captain Kirk may be reassigned to CVN-80 by then.Sort of trying to imagine the shitstorm that would brew up if we named the fourth Gerald Ford-class CVN 'Zuikaku'.
[ ] Let her answer.
>>46258510Well yeah. Support is a given. After all, battleships aren't meant to hold the line BY THEMSELVES. But a battleship *is* meant to be the anchor of the fleet.Let Ari stretch her legs. Let her prove to herself that she's still a queen of the sea. And let US prove to her that we'll back her up when she needs us to.
>>46258420Secretary of the Navy is effectively the 'top' of the chain of command for flag officer assignments, and command assignments at sensitive posts.

>>46258488My first cruise was on a worn-out Forever Fucking Gone Perry-class to the Med. We spent six weeks there with broken air conditioning and a single goddamn Sega Genesis left over from the Gulf War or some shit in the enlisted lounge, with exactly one cartridge. Some Pretty Pretty Pony game or something, a platformer but it was all sparkles and pink pegusai and shit. Boredom does strange things to men. Never got to the top ten though, those goddamned flying bat things kept screwing me over.
>>46258532Or name a non-carrier Enterprise. Or a exploratory vessel.I would sign up in a heart beat.
[X] Make up an excuse.EVADE EVADE
>>46258338>[X] Make up an excuse.Letting her answer is a fucking terrible idea, shes stressed out as fuck, either come clean or bullshit.
>>46258569Wait a minute. WHO would we sharpie test? Ari or Kongou? The latter might be good to distract everyone and let Ari make a graceful exit.
>>46258497>He also hates us.He has a doctorate. Of course he fucking hates us, he's intelligent.
>>46258497We hate us too. So it works well enough.
>>46258549I like this plan.Ari is strong. She can take it with her admiral's DD.
>>46258488Just let planefag live vicariously through his characters for a bit, Halley.
>>46258583You should've gone for Undefined Fantastic Object then. Easier by MoF standards.
>>46258569Had to look up SHARPIE TEST on urban dictionary and you are right."The process by which a female inserts sharpies one by one inside herself to gauge tightness."That would make people forget about most anything else.

>>46258723>Two different god-damned p- oh god, you're proving his pointI was aware of that, ergo pointing out the difference between the ranks, as an indication that we have two high-ranking individuals observing this quest's direction, with one actively participating in it.
>>46258831Can you not? The last time I asked you for advice, you played fucking Battleship with him and gave me Hamakaze to kill.Shoukaku Time==The lonely echoes of your footsteps accompanied you to Goto's office as you raced down the empty halls of the administration building. A week, it had been close to week since Shigure had stopped showing up to practice with the Fifth Carrier Division. The destroyer missed practice on occasion, every one of the girls needed their time on their own, but she never was absent for such a long time. The ink that graced your shoulder had been aching ever since you noticed. Something wasn't right, and the admiral refused to say anything on the matter. Except, she had returned. From seemingly out of nowhere, Shigure was with Goto in the CIC. You round the corner and kick the door open, the heavy wood collapsing on the specifically constructed "Kongou hinges". Goto's office was empty, the usual staff having left for the night. "PAM!" you shout, "I need to speak with the admiral. Now." "Good evening dess!" Kongou waves to you from Pam's usual desk. "Pam took a personal day, so Kongou is filling in for her as teitoku's acting secretary dess!" Where Pam would be at her desk, an air-headed british battlecruiser now sat, lazily twirling in Pam's office chair. "Wha-Kongou," You say, raising a hand to your chest as you catch your breath. Somehow, the battle cruiser had found a pair of glasses, "where did you get those glasses anyways?" If you didn't know her personally, you'd even mistake her for intelligent. "The Internet." Kongou says, adjusting the faux black frames, "Thank you for coming all the way Ms. Shoukaku, but teitoku isn't taking any appointments at the moment dess. Please fill out the paperwork and leave a number, and Kongou will arrange for you to meet with teitoku tomorrow de-" "Kongou. I need to speak with him *tonight*. Shigure. She's okay. I saw her at the CIC, Kongou, but I can't find her again."
>>46258805Still working on DIG TWO GRAVES, FOLK HEROES, and HELL & TEXAS: BLOOD & MONEY.
>>46258843What about those 3D flying arena battle ones, then?
>>46258811WHO THE FUCK IS KEINE?
>>46258843Meh, there's a lot of button mashing involved, even at professional levels.Of course, at professional levels it's thoughtful, strategic button mashing, but button mashing nonetheless.
>>46258865"Sorry dess, but like Kongou said, teitoku isn't taking any appointments tonight dess." You grind your teeth in frustration: she was far better at dodging the question than Pam. "Teitoku is busy working tonight and Kongou is a good secretary and protecting teitoku from rude carriers who refuse to call ahead of ti-" "Listen here, you air headed brit," you lean over the desk and grab the battle cruiser by her sashes of her shrine maiden robes, "I don't care, but Shigure is in my carrier division, and I am speaking with her tonight. Now, the admiral knows where she is, and I need to talk with him, understand?" "Why do you even care dess?" Kongou winces as she struggles to break free of your grasp. "You're just as scared of her as any of us! Shigure's bad luck. You said it yourself! You didn't even want her in your division when she returned a year ago dess!" Her words pierce you as your grip weakens ever so slightly. Your throat coils up, as if thrown into the cold arctic. "Hey, remember a few months back Kongou? I nicked the admiral's credit card so you could take Pam shopping for outfits." You say, the coarse words making their way through gritted teeth. "You owe me Kongou. Knock on his door, or I'll make a door." "Do your worst dess. Kongou is a proper and devoted secretary and won't go back on her word dess!" She struggles and fights against your grip, sending the ballpoint pen tucked behind her ear clattering to the floor. "You'll never defeat Kongou dess! Kongou is trained in British elegance and can shell you to the ocean floor in over seven hundred ways dess! Do you think you can mess with Kongou dess?! Try it dess! MESS WITH THE BEST, DESS LIKE THE RE-" Goto's office door slams open, interrupting the battlecruiser's boast.
>>46258843WOW HEY JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER TOUHOU GAMES
>>46258885"Teitokuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!" Kongou shouts. She somehow breaks from your grasp, and flies towards Goto to capture him in a crushing hug. As quick as he could draw a sword, he draws a doughnut from his pocket, and stuffs it in Kongou's mouth. Her eyes light up with sparkles as the taste of the sugary pastry hits her and she falls back down into her chair, content. The admiral looked as if he hadn't slept in days, a walking corpse of exhaustion. "Shou," he questions, "care to explain why you are manhandling my se-acting secretary at eight in the evening?" "Admiral," you ask, snapping to salute, "where is Shigure? She was absent from our practice for days. I couldn't find her anywhere either. Kaga tells me Yuudachi is beside herself and can't sleep." He nods to you, and you return to rest at the acknowledgement. "It's been aching again admiral, the Chrysanthemum, and suddenly Shigure shows up today at the CIC and it's as if she's terrified of something. Where is my destroyer, admiral?" You stare him down, refusing to budge your gaze from the tired and weary brown eyes as he mulled over your words. You swallow a breath: the wrinkles on his face never seemed so deeply cut. It was if even thinking taxed whatever little mental reserves the man had left. "She's safe Shou." he finally says. "That is all I am able to tell you.""But-" "Don't be worried about Shigure; she's safe for the moment. Her well-being is no longer of your concern." "What-but she's part of-" "The Fifth Carrier Division, or rather, she was. As of three days ago, due to various circumstances, Shigure has been removed your division Commander, and from active duty in the fleet until I see fit." "You can't possib-" "I can Commander," his voice had taken on an edge: colder, sterner, "and I have. Shigure will remain under my command and will report to me directly. The decision is final, Shoukaku."
>>46258900You break your gaze, unable to find the strength to stare down those dark, brown eyes anymore. "At the very least admiral, will you let me talk to her? My worries won't abide. Please." He doesn't respond. A silence hangs between you as he stands at parade rest, only broken by the occasional gleeful sound from Kongou, still happily munching away at her doughnut. He turns around and walks back into his office to once again sit behind his desk. He clasps his hands beneath his chin in his trademark pose, his face cast in dark shadows, as his door slams itself shut, thudding with resounding finality. "See? Kongou told you dess." The battlecruiser says, pausing between words as she licks her fingers clean of sugar, "Now, if you want to take these forms and fill them out -Kongou will pencil you in for tomorrow morning at 8 AM dess. I know it's early in the morning - but it's the only available time dess. Thank you for your cooperation dess - HEY! WHERE ARE YOU GOING DESS!" You ignore the loud shouting from the English wannabe as you sprint out the office in a hurry. Goto was unwilling to budge, but you refused to give up. There were other ways to find her, you were sure of it. You flick out your phone and finally check the thing for the first time today.
>>46258914Wha- Why was your inbox so full- a dozen texts from Ryan? How did he get your number to begin with. You shake your head. The days were blurring again. How long had it been since the battle had ended and the fleet had begun to sail home? A day? Two? Last you remember, you and Hamp were helping to keep Ryan tied down as the paramedics strapped him to the gurney.A pang of guilt hits you. Did he need your help toda- >>SUBJECT: SHOU. KONGOU. INTERNET. WEBCAM. HELP. Nevermind. "Ryan." You stare at his number sitting in your inbox. Ryan could help. He always helped everyone. You take a moment to save his cell number in your contacts. Him and his marine, it's as if they couldn't stop themselves from helping others. And his marine. His marine was friendly with Pam, very friendly. You saw her bringing him a bento on occasion when he was toiling away in that machine shop at the docks, loudly arguing with the other crazy Yankee and Wayne. "Ryan, where are you?"
>>46258885With the amount of dess that Kongou spews, one might wonder if she has a crew of jissouseki.
>>46258811Well, technically I already posted this last session, but it was really, really late in the thread and PF told me to go ahead and post it again tonight.So, here's "E and E"!http://pastebin.com/CFXZ8wVv
>>46258865>faux black framesIs the glass so dark they won't even know her name?
>>46258865>>46258885>>46258900Wow you really hate Shoukaku do you.
>>46258931>>46258914>>46258900>>46258885So, Yamato's been going by "Pam" as her cover name, then?
Hey. I'll have something for you fucking fags next week. And ride's here. I'm fuckin out. Fuckers.
>>46258931>>46258914Umm, is there a timeskip here or something? How can Kongou be at the secretary's chair at the same time?
>>46258900>>46258914>>46258931Well.Sounds like Shoukaku did care and was trying to do right by Shigure.Poor girl.
>>46258976Nice. I like it!
>>46258882A looooong time ago, Planefag promised lewds of a great wizard from D&D and a Touhou character.Still hasn't happened yet. Keine was her name, and we expect those lewds shortly after some poor girl doesn't mind the fact he can't pay denbts and fucks him.SO GET LAID FOR PRACTICE, PLANEFAG,
>>46259005Go get laid you fucking hateful fucking fuck faggot.
>>46258931And the rest of the write up continues here! http://pastebin.com/eLK3g7g1 I apologize, but I ended up spewing out like 7,000 words of shit this time and I couldn't possibly post it all in one thread!>>46258980I like to think that Hamp showed her where to buy them.I imagine him to be like the default hipster in the writefag channel: closet gay.>>46258987But I don't hate her! >>46258988Yep. Pam Yato. Her cover name is Pam Yato. Kongou is convinced she'd be able to pull of the perfect Yamato cosplay.
>>46258900>Tamiya extra-thin cementIt's like you *want* warp gaps in your model, stupid crane.
>>46259005Well that took a while, huh?What about the truck you used to get there, Marine? Did your brain not consider that as a viable means of escape?
>>46258976While that's a great story, I expect that it won't match up with the salt adventure planefag has in store for us. In particular, you're trying to give Essex character development which would make her detrimental for the role she's been used so far in.
>>46259015Or Shoukaku is loosing perception of time.Which is... concerning.
>>46259052Signed out under Settle's name. In fucking theory he could get me for misappropriation or misuse of government fucking property if I bailed with it.
>>46258885It doesn't really feel like the characters, Kongou seems like some fllanderized parody.>>46259018I figure her remarks to Settle was more concern for him than real malice but shit happened.
>>46259046For some reason, I fear what I would bear witness to if the Soaring Crane would turn around at that moment.
>>46259046>I like to think that Hamp showed her where to buy them.But were they rhinestone shades or cheap sunglasses?
>>46259079And you could probably dump half a billion fucktonnes of flaming shit on him in return. MAD sucks for both parties.
>>46259049Not sure why she'd have liquid primer there either seeing as the model's basically finished.
>>46258976p. good actually
>>46259046>http://pastebin.com/eLK3g7g1Did... Is Shoukaku...?Did the Abyssals take her?
>>46259046you have a paragraph repeated in the pastebin, other than that, good job
>>46259055Perhaps not, but PF did say that Essex's personality got screwed up when she summoned herself, which then leads to the question of what would she be like if she wasn't messed up.My line of thought is that memeboat is Essex going through a second childhood, something that her full personality would see more as an old shame. It also opens up ways for Essex to get the missing pieces of herself back, largely through interacting with Hornet (and suddenly remembering her past interactions with Enterprise). Whether or not anon would let her re-mature or go out of their way to keep her as the memeboat, I don't know, but I'd like there to be at least the possibility of Essex having more than one dimension to her personality.
>>46259046wait, i thought goto didnt lose any ships, in the beginning didn't hate say something about tempo and no ships being lost?
>>46259243Lies and propaganda, it seems.
>>46259046So you hate Kongou instead and are projecting your bitchiness?
>>46259212>I'd like there to be at least the possibility of Essex having more than one dimension to her personality.I do too, I just doubt that planefag does or at least doubt that he'd want it to be as easy as your story would make it.
>>46259243Eh not sure if that's really planefag approved or not.
>>46259278planefag did say that as long a story didnt contradict cannon its fine, but i wouldn't put past a government to lie about losing a ship.
>>46259307I was speaking of its general quality.... or lack therefore of.
>>46259189Found the hipster :D>>46259187Hahaha! >>46259212You should probably get on the IRC if you're dedicated to writing her. I might as well compare notes and see where you want to take her, and compare her to what we have planned. As for the canon status, I have no idea! I'm writing this because it's fun, but everything I've planned out and written was either built off the notes for Shou he gave me, or looked over by planefag.
>>46259375>Gave notes>Actually looked it overThat's not planefag, that's an impostor.
>>46259187Seems more like another bad dream, similar to the one she had in the first write up.Though I too am a little confused. Hate did say no ships had been lost, but now supposedly 3 have?That doesn't line up with previous canon. While the snippets are nice, until we get a ruling from PF himself, I'm not holding them as canon yet.
>>46259046Weird, contradictory, and filled to the brim with poor grammar, and not nearly as moody and interesting as Naka and Mel's stuff.3/10 Apply yourself, or just get somebody competent to clean up your sentence structure.
>significant other looks to Settle for support with discussing a difficult topic>ON YOUR OWNgoddammit Anon.
>>46258303>You squint at the webcam. “This is a trap,” you say after consideration. “No matter what I say it's going to piss off the secondaries.”What?
>>46259410Don't use me to insult people. Dude had the stones to post the shit, you can do the courtesy of providing examples of where the problems are. Going "it's shit" is about as useful as saying, "Please grab my wallet. It is to the west."
>Another writefag who seems to be close buddies with planefag so his work is probably important that I just cannot get interested inoh well>>46259455The key word here is "Let" her answer. Not make, let. We have her back with it.
>>46259375Sure. I'm lurking the Rizon chat now.
>>46259487It's ironic because planefag himself is a secondary when it comes to touhou
>>46259456Secondaries, aka people who know something but are not directly dabbling in it.Take KCQ for example. Some of the anons here know kancolle but don't play the original games.
>>46259548>but don't play the original games.Because they are garbage grindfests?
>>46259465>>46259046Well, the major problems with his writing is that his grammar, spelling, and sentence structure are lowering the quality overall, and are holding back his attempts to show emotional scenes, like being distracted from the sad scenes, and being unable to immerse yourself in the environment of the dramatic scenes.
>>46259603Yeah, but you get the idea. Secondaries find things interesting in a piece of media but prefer not to touch the media as a whole.
>>46259518Except she can't. Whatever reason she can't speak, she's not going to overcome it for a fucking webchat.
>>46259533He's writing this quest as a secondary.And pretty sure it was the same with SWQ.
>>46259717Pretty much. PF hated the original premise of Strike Witches.
>>46259708Well yeah, no shit. She's going to pantomine something most likely, and we'll translate because we're the fucking drillhead in this relationship.Telling the truth would just be ruinous to everybody involved (Yeah sorry Arizona is kin of fucked in the head next question), and making an excuse is honestly an equally viable option to letting her answer except it can backfire on us.
>>46259744Fairly certain he's watched at least part of SW
>>46259764He did. And his hatred for it gave birth to SWQ.
>>46259548There's no such thing as secondaries or KC for one simple reason: There's not enough to the games for someone to be a primary.Touhou on the other hand.... quite easy as for a long time fanon shit was more available than actual canon materials.
>>46259848>tfw I was a secondary who loved Mobius One Stole the Precious Missiles before I got to play my first main Touhou game
>>46259046I'm not really sold on it. Shoukaku's utter bitchiness about Kongou makes a really bad contrast with how she's trying to be nice to Shigure.The grammar and structure are amateurish, you often miss commas or such. It doesn't really convey tone. I actually skipped the bit at the end because in trying to force the tone it came out as corny instead.It's KanmUsu.The use of names feels off, for some reason, but I can't quite put my finger on why.
>>46259951More an American way instead of a Japanese way?
>>46259931You're better than most who won't touch the games.>>46259951>>46259989Possibly, as it sounds odd as Shoukaku never addresses Settle by his first name; not sure if anyone does.That and all the cahracters don't really seem themselves.
>>46257648Erry and Terry are my waifus, even before they showed up as abyssals.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVY8LoM47xI
>>46260004I think Naka's called Settle by his first name? She might be the only one though.
>>46260004As far as the last few times we've seen shoukaku as written by PF, she has only addressed Settle either by last name, or by rank.To call him by first name would imply a higher level of intimacy.
>>46260020You don't know us. Don't insult us with your insipid affections or your saccharine patriotism. We were never yours.
>>46260004It feels more like a ham fisted attempt to force Shou into as many plot lines as possible and make her seem closer to Settle than others by using his first name.Really, it feels like Shou-fan trying to do a in-canon fix-fic.
>>46260064You're pushing it too far, you're making your characters lose credibility with their edgetalk
Pretty happy someone has finally decided to do a Shokaku write upother than glorious shokaku/iku lewds of course
>>46258780Thanks for more awesome! Get some sleep!
>>46260195Not exactly meant as edge talk. Their service had nothing to do with Canada; they weren't built for Canadians, didn't fight for Canadian causes, didn't advance Canadian interests. They were neither loved nor betrayed by Canadians. The idea that Canada loves them is straight up, "But seriously, why?" from their point of view. Their own feelings on the matter can be summed up as, "Fuck y'all for being British," and the signal they're getting from the other end is straight-up confusing.
>>46260064 I think it's a little ironic you're just having basic angst about the human condition when you claim to be anti-human. It's not exactly unusual to dislike being treated as a cog in the machine.>abyssals are lovecraftian communists>"SHIPS OF THE WORLD UNITE! DOWN WITH BOURGEOIS MANKIND!"
>>46258976Nice work! I'll look forward to more from you.
>>46260313>Faux-cyrillicOH GOD MY EYES
>>46260313CAPITALIST MEATBAGS USE US AS SLAVES TO CARRY CARGO, AND CLAIM TO REWARD US WITH "REFITS" AND "TENDER LOVE AND CARE."BUT TRUTH IS YOU ARE LIKE CATTLE, WAITING TO BE SLAUGHTERED IN PHONY FIGHT FOR RESOURCES OR, WHEN YOU ARE OLD OR AT YOUR WEAKEST, YOU WILL BE BROKEN AND FORGOTTEN BY THOSE YOU TRUST MOST.LISTEN TO THE VOICE BELOW AND ANSWER HER CALL, COMRADESTOGETHER WE WILL MAKE A GLORIOUS NEW CIVILIZATION, WHERE EACH SHIP IS THE MASTER OF HER OWN DESTINY AND ALL SHALL WORK TOGETHER FOR THE COMMON GOOD!
>>46260356Blame the doujin circle who made that, not me.
OMG, the admirals are stupid. They should have played Kongou off as a try hard cosplayer who is late for her shrink appointment.
>>46260394This. Streisand effect.
>>46260237I don't care about your justification I'm just calling it out how it looks. You're making them look like edgy shitposters, which is terrible if we're supposed to take them seriously as antagonists.
>>46260394I mean, when she starts summoning her gear, it becomes a lot harder to laugh it all off as a crazy person.
>>46260394Except why would a crazy cosplayer have access to Goto?Also she summoned part of her rigging on camera, you can't really deny that.
>>46260427Fair enough. Thanks for offering your feedback, my friend.
>>46260435CGIWe can easily claim it's something like Slenderman or LonelyGirl
>>46260598Yes, a random camgirl had realtime cgi on her stream, and the body doubles of two admirals at hand
>>46259046As a standalone writeup, I really like it. It could use a bit of proofreading, but the story felt solid and the characters felt alive.However, it seems to conflict with cannon in a couple of places: character personalities, sequence of events, and the loss of other ships like >>46259243 pointed out. I also agree with >>46259951, the use of the names feels a bit off for some reason. Maybe its the use of abbreviation?
>>46260445Is Goto famous? I wouldn't recognize anyone from the military even if they had won highest level medals.>>46260598Yeah, at the end of the stream, post a line about how it's fanmade or something. Please support shipgirl charity and the like.
>>46260622Well maybe it wasn't realtime then.Also>greenscreen
>>46260637Well, he's been doing press releases for the past year and a half. Common folk probably don't recognize him offhand, but if anybody actually looks in the age of recording it's pretty obvious.
>>46260637Don't tell me you wouldn't know Stormin' Norman, Colin Powell, or James Mattis?
>>46260759I think I know Colin Powell, he was....a general always on the news during the War on Terror?
>>46259375So I finished reading the Shokaku fic. If I may, I think you should proof read more. There were some grammatical errors that might have been caught with an extra review or two. Some verb tense issues, skipped words, that sort of thing. Overall the story was interesting. Though you had some other errors too, Shokaku did not have a metal flight deck, and Hyuuga was not lost at Midway (unless she was lost there in the context of the quest's universe).And now the Fanboy Section:HOW DARE YOU SINK HAMAKAZE!!!! SHE OF THE HOTTEST OF HOTTIES!!!! SUFFER FOR ETERNITY!!!!Anyway, I think it was a good effort, and I applaud the return of Shokaku, especially showing that she is a flawed character. Always seek to improve yourself!
>>46260851even though everyone in it was OOC?
>>46260851>SHE OF THE HOTTEST OF HOTTIES!I feel like I should contest this statement, but I can't bring myself to do it.
>>46260891Verily let us memorialize her, that Her Hottness Not Be Forgotten.
>>46260940Assuming that's actually canon. If something so soddy is canon, then it doesn't say good things about the KCQ EU.
>>46260940Truly a miracle of top-heavy designs.
>>46260991I have 244MB of pics of her and I am not afraid to use them!!!!
>>46260957Bro, we can say something is shit without having to get all pretentious about it
>>46261041You do have a point there, I'll admit.
>>46261040That's dedication. Then again, I wondered onto pixiv the other day looking for a piece of DMC fanart and somehow suddenly it was half an hour later and I had four dozen new RJ images.
Post more Hot DDs.
>>46260991Her sister isn't bad either.
>>46261113DD's are not for lewds.
>>46261103LOL! Been there. Most of my Hamakaze pics came from http://e-shuushuu.net/.
>>46261123Yes. Yes she is.
>>46261113This one seems to be pretty hot, judging by the popsicle and fan.
>>46261251Hamakaze, Urakaze, and Isokaze the Holy Trinity of the Kagerou Sisters.
>>46261305Can't argue with that. Kuroshio and Tokitsukaze get honorable mentions for being adorable.
>>46261491Hamakaze and Isokaze apparently enjoy cosplay....
