The mouthwatering smell of baking bread and muffins wafts through Arizona's small apartment. The oven's warmth is taxing the modest air conditioner. Willie's found her appetite again, and after wolfing down her donuts (so fast you make a note to ask if she's been avoiding the mess to the point of skipping meals,) she ends up falling asleep on the couch, her head resting in Arizona's lap. The slender “battleship” is gently stroking Willie's head, tucking stray strands of chestnut hair behind her ear.

“Baseline 9C?” you query.

“The whole package,” Baker confirms. “That isn't the half of it, either. Since she needed extensive yard work anyway, and the fleet is stretched so thin, the Navy requested we update the CIC and change the layout a bit.”

Your heart is beating faster, driving your relentless circling pacing around Arizona's empty little living room. “What, like the Flight III layout?”

“Better. Since the consoles are a lot more compact now, we were able to free up more floor space in there. And since we were rebuilding the whole bridge anyway, we worked over the forecastle to provide some cabins, a small conference and communications room...”

“What are you saying?”

“It's not a proper flagship,” Baker continues, “Not for a carrier battle group or anything, but she has much better command accommodations now. For a division leader.”

Your heart damn near stops.

“Baker, are-” the room seems to be spinning. “Baker. *Please.*”

“She's going to have her own Captain,” Baker says with amusement, “I'm not gonna jangle keys at you and tell you the tank's full. But you're an Admiral without a flagship right now, and rumor has it Higgins whole crew is *still* officially TDY-

The room is definitely spinning now. Higgins didn't just survive. She's not just coming back.

She's coming back to *you.*

[ ] It's a miracle. A second chance to do right by her, and her crew, and every man who's blood stained her decks at LA. A second chance to follow your XOs example. A chance to finally silence the demons - to finally discharge your duty in full.

Yes, a ship-girl going full size would displace A LOT of water, pretty much the effect of a large bomb going off near the ship's hull. This would damage the hull.

If anything we'd need a catapult or a trebuchete to launch them far enough away.

I'm guessing it won't be too hard to refit her for shipgirl actions. We might not be able to *rapid* deploy our girls, but if it was that hard to launch girls, I doubt PF would have let it gone unmentioned.

I followed in her footsteps, she retired from the USANC as a full bird like I will but it was a LONG time ago. Of course at the time she had only been out for about a year and then went on to public medicine. Either way she still had lots of friends in the service and as any service member can attest to, the army is a small world and army medicine even more so.

Depends on which option won. If we went for the first one, aka "oh my god Higgins I have the old ship back that I missed so much" then sure. If we went for the second one, aka "Oh my god a flagship I can finally back up my new girls the way I was meant to", not so much

Higgins isn't a shipgirl, Ari is, and CNO gave us very clear orders to keep our girls happy. We may have our old ship back, but that doesn't mean we can neglect the bonds we have formed with our shipgirls.
>>
>>46656497
>Are we still going to be able to act like her Admiral?
Yes, because we can then go into battle with her. We might not be able to ride her into battle, but that's because of the health and safety risks associated in riding her into battle. Not to mention the whole weirdness surrounding trying to get a saddle that can fit her...

Ok yeah 'Lead from the front' won overwhelmingly.

This is fine, from a waifu standpoint. She might still be worried, since Settle did confess the whole unhealthy 'replacement ship' thing and then suddenly said ship comes back to him, but I don't think there's anything in Settle's attitude to give lie to those worries, as-voted.

The rest of Baker's words drift through your mind without connecting as the full weight hits you like a sack of lead bricks.

Flagship.

The howling dark is hungry, and it's told you - in as many words - that it wants to devour your girls whole. And you've told it, right back, that it'll have go to through every human soldier who draws breath if it wants to.

And now - you can keep your promises.

Every time you ordered your precious charges into a storm of shellfire and death from a thousand miles away - every time you stood there, trembling with impotent rage as the jaws of the trap closed, with you bereft of backup and all reserves committed, praying for a miracle - every time you loathed the burden you laid on their shoulders, while you carried none. Every time, this, this is what you wished for. Your shipgirls have produced more than their fair share of miracles.

Next time abyssals close the trap, you'll be able to back your words with action. Next time, the Abyss will find itself staring into *you* - and God help them then, for their own tricks won't.

The next time they come for your girls, the bastards will have to go through *you,* first.
>>
You make your apologies to Baker distantly, barely hearing your own words. You almost feel drunk; sandbagged by too many emotions at once. Almost staggering, you slip your phone into your pocket after obligatory goodbyes and promises of further contact as you approach the sofa. Arizona's staring into space, silent and stiff, her hand resting gentle on Willie's temple.

Always dutiful. Always ready.

“Flagship,” you breathe. “They're making her my flagship.”

She nods, ever so slightly, as if to say yes, she heard.

“From now on,” you breathe. “From now on, I fight *with* you.”

She makes no reply, eyes fixed on the carpet now.

You kneel near her, looking up into her shadowed eyes - the only lit lamps are in the kitchen, and the last setting sunrays are retreating across the ceiling. “I don't... I don't know what you feel-”

- a twitch, at that -

“- but when they-” when they rake filthy claws through my mind - “- touch my thoughts...” your breath quavers in your breast. “That last time... it's... it's personal, now. Especially with Higgins, again... they'll come for everything I care about, directly, because I've-” scared “-challenged them, and they can't take it, they *loathe* it, I think. They're going to come for mine - for *you.*”

Arizona seems to have stopped breathing.

“I-” have no goddamned idea what I'm doing - “-was never meant for this. Not now, not so soon. Men my age don't *get* this rank for a reason, and it's not just office politics, either. But this... this I can do. This is what I've been *trained* to do,” you insist, feeling the heat creep into your voice. “They want to desecrate all I hold dear and *I won't fucking let them, Arizona*.”

She tucks her chin down further, as if checking on Willie - but in the growing gloom you can see a single tear sliding down her pale cheek.

I was tempted to select option 2, but we've already been burned by not doing better with Arizona, so let's hear what she has to say about this so we're on the same page and not making assumptions about what she thinks.

We can't say that there won't be losses, because we went into Sunda Strait with the best possible fleet combination and damn near almost lost four shipgirls (chunnibotes and torpedo sisters), on top of the conventional naval asset losses...

And the first option just sounds unfortunate for continued friendly relations between Ari and Settle.

So, just looking at the option.
>1
Insisting, yet again, that there's nothing wrong at all with our subconscious desire to wind up dead for the sake of our demons. Bad call imo.
>2
Focusing on WHAT she got angry about (Settle being in danger) and not WHY that upset her so much. Not bad, but not good enough I think.
>3
Not being bullheaded is not the same as being 'beta' you fucking cucks. Doubling down and insisting there's nothing wrong with Settle or what he's feeling isn't heroic.
>>
>>46657559
Asking her what she wants is bad because what she wants is painfully fucking obvious by now.

Cup sizes are inherently relative to build and frame, as opposed to bust circumference, which is exactly that.

A woman's 3 sizes don't inherently tell you how busty she is, because a given number for the bust could be pretty much any cup size depending on the size of the ribcage those boobs sit on. A 36 inch bust could be an A cup for a fairly broad-chested woman, or a DD for a more petite frame.

The cup letter tells you how big the breasts are relative to the chest as a whole, and thus are a fairly consistent metric of bustiness. DD breasts won't have the same mass and volume from woman to woman, but they will always be about the same size relative to the woman's frame.

None of the options are great. But we do know that Arizona cares about us a lot. It's redundant to ask her as in option #3. Plus, I'm pretty sure she doesn't want us keeping our flag on another boat, so Higgins coming back is not exactly what she wants.

We want to be in the fight as much as she does, and we are just as much of a sailor as she is.

No, not live.

I found KCQ a while later and then decided to go and see wtf everyone was talking about when they kept mentioning this mythical unfinished SWQ. Then I stumbled on to '89... 4 or 5 weeks ago and burned through that, Tanks, and PJ at the same time.

You know which ship should be in one of the writeups about the Bongs? HMS Glowworm: when a duel against two German destroyers became the losing side of a curb-stomp battle against the faster, more heavily armed heavy cruiser Admiral Hipper, her captain, Lieutenant Commander Gerard Roope VC RN, attempted to torpedo his opponent, playing what was a small ship's hole card against larger ones in those days. When this failed, he charged his burning ship in to ram. Glowworm was on fire from end to end, her guns knocked out, and her Action Stations klaxon stuck on due to a shorted-out wire connection. The Germans were being attacked by a flaming ghost ship that was screaming like a banshee and determined to ram them. It could only have one ending, but when it was over the German cruiser had had 130ft of armour plate and half its own torpedo tubes ripped off, while Glowworm carried Roope and 108 of his men to Valhalla. Captain Roope was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross - at the recommendation of the German cruiser's captain.

I kinda wish I had a camera with me when I asked him. He just looked up from his desk at me without actually lifting his head and said "What?"
"Are destroyers for lewds?"
"Why on God's Green Earth are you asking me that Colonel?" And then he actually looked at me and got this 'Oh my god you have got to be fucking kidding me' look on his face before saying "This is for me of your weird nip weeb shit isn't it?"
"Sort of sir." Then I had to show him KCQ and explain that to him before he finally gave me the answer we now all know.

“Don't,” you say quietly. “Come on, don't - don't do that.”

She makes no reply, sitting statue-still in the gathering gloom.

“I know... at the hospital, I... I was hasty. And angry. But I *can* take care of myself, Arizona. I think I proved that much. Standing on a bridge - I proved that too, didn't I?” You hear the frustration in your own voice and let go of it with a sigh. “I can *do* this, Arizona. I can finally do my damn job!”

She says nothing, motionless.

Gripping the sofa's arm, you lever yourself up with a grunt, fighting the tight snarl of your leg wound, where the muscle doesn't want to flex. Frustration swells in your chest till you feel fit to burst - so soon on the heels of the good news, this intransigence from your most trusted subordinate, the one you owe the most after your follies - it's almost too much to bear. Safe in the dark, you grip your head and twist your fingers through your close-cropped hair, trying to squeeze the growing headache back down where it belongs. Arizona's bowed head, bare of its usual hat, is just a phantom in the shadows. You close your eyes and see her again in the doorway; shorts and t-shirt, duster tied around her waist like a hoodie, or an apron; blue eyes all asparkle.

They're girls, Goto said. Girls. But Goto doesn't see the Warship in them, and that's why he never noticed Naka's slow slide towards the abyss. You always sensed it strong in Arizona; the calm, rock-solid determination to serve, to realize her true purpose in the fires of battle, standing square between carnage and Country - the first and last line of defense, the sword and shield combined - the battle line.

But she didn't look like a battleship today.

Just a nervous girl carrying a gun two sizes too big for her delicate frame.

A girl.

You squeeze your head tightly, trying to cram the blasphemous thought back into the churning tentacles of your Id - but it's there to stay, sticky like tar and even now flickering alight, a flame that'll burn underwater if it wants.

You were ordered - give her whatever she wants. Ordered. By God himself.

... but isn't that what you should have been doing from the beginning? Isn't that your job, in the end? Not just to lead - but to lead from the front. To place yourself between them and those who would do them harm - to preserve the precious assets - no, the beloved daughters of the Nation? To support, and protect?

No matter *what* the price?

“... I.” You suck in a rattling breath. “I... I'm just doing my job the best I know how. Because I... I don't know what you want, exactly. And... and I... I know you'll *never* ask. But you shouldn't *have* to.” The pressure in your head is tearing it apart. “I'm not... I'm not supposed to do this. Admirals... don't do *this.*” Never let them see you crack - and never, ever let them see you cry. Fetch my red shirt and my brown pants, as the old joke goes. You can cry on your own damn time - but when you carry the burden of command, you carry the courage and morale of every man and woman under your leadership. You're the guiding star, the fixed point in space that everyone can steer by, the Old Man.

But when you're alone in the dark, you know what you really are - a fucking joke, promoted far above his competence level.

You're not the right man for this job.

But there is nobody else here.

“But I have to,” you gasp. “I'm responsible. I've... I owe you everything I can give-” even if it's a Captain's service, not the Admiral she needs - “-and I can't give it if I don't know, so I beg you, *tell me.*”

There's a gentle creak of sofa springs; a soft rustling of cloth. You squeeze your eyes shut, not wanting to see what you just asked for, some delirious part of your head hoping you'll wake up to a saner world where you didn't just wind up and kick years of training and proper procedure into the gutter. You expect the click of a light switch, but instead you feel a gentle tap on your shoulder. Lowering your arms, you feel the shaft of your cane obstructing your motion.

You accept it, turning to face Arizona. Her face is half-lit, half shadowed by the faint glow of the stove-top light in the kitchen. She lifts her hand and mimes a cane-walking motion, then points at you.

“... okay, that one I don't get.”

She grabs *her* head now, then stabs her finger at the open floor between living room and kitchen before making a shooing motion. *Go.*

You go, hobbling towards the kitchen. Stopping at the threshold, you look back over your shoulder. She beckons you back, so back you go, hobbling up to her. “So what does this-”

-without warning, she kicks the cane out from under your hand just as you're trusting your full weight to it. You're so surprised you don't even have time to yelp as you fall -

- right into her arm as she catches you around the waist. You feel her sag dangerously as she takes your full weight; she's still in Girl mode, with no Ship to steel her frame - but she manages to get her hips into it, slinging you upright with a grunt.

On steady footing again, you stare at her, the gears crunching into motion in your skull as she pokes you meaningfully in the chest.

“... but-” her hand clamps over your mouth, and steel or not, her grip is pretty damned firm. You see her blue eyes flashing as she shakes her head, catching the dim light of the stove light.

Not really. Tsushima certainly was humiliating for the Russians and cemented Japan as a great power, but it's not like Russia winning against a non-European navy was utterly groundbreaking, nor was an Asian power getting its ass handed to them.

The only real change would have probably been focusing on its army more than its navy. Which results in the Chinese meatgrinder, same as the standard history.

What would actually cause butterflies for Japan would probably be better outcomes from the Post-WW1 all you can eat kraut buffet. Japan's ww2 mindset stems directly from the feeling they got shafted post-WW1, not from overconfidence after Russia.

Because nobody should really feel overconfident after defeating Russia.

As well they should. Nursing care is where patient recovery makes or breaks. What's more common; a fuck-up during a surgery, or a nasty drug-resistant MERSA infection contracted at the hospital? Nurses are the ones that check charts and actually administer drugs and do the day-to-day. That's where diligence is required, and diligence is hard, especially with the kind of grueling shifts nurses work. My grandmother's life was saved by a competent nursing staff when her own doctor's dipshittery would've killed her.

Fuck yeah, nurses.

I like most of the first option, except the insinuation at the end that we doubt she can handle it. Hence the modification -- it's not that we think she's weak, it's that it simply wouldn't be right to ask her to bear our burden on top of her own.

No man is an island.
Even if he was, that wouldn't save him from a shipgirl. Naka had to help herself because she didn't have so much fucking external weight on her- Settle does. He still has to take care of his internal shit, but that won't do him any good if he fucking buckles.

Sodak is probably responsible for the 5 inch hits - she never stopped firing them even with her main control out due to the engineer shorting out the system. Washington is responsible for every one of those 16 inchers though.

When I was catching up on the last thread I did realize another reason why Yam might be sleeping on you.

Specifically, she might be using you as a substitute for a destroyer puddle. She's not sleeping in a destroyer puddle both because that would probably give away her status and because she thinks it's beneath her station.

You're both right, probably. IIRC SoDak didn't have a turreted secondary battery, and even if she did, those are small enough to be trained by hand. Without power, though, you're firing on local control (no automatic setting from the fire director) and laying the guns by hand, both of which are shit ways to do it, especially at night.

So she was blazing away, but her accuracy was predictably shit.
