You glare down at the aged man, thinking of how to extract what you wanted to know from him...>He's a pirate. They only respond to force.>He's scared.

>>46867598Well, you don't the guy to outright faint and not give you any decent info. Maybe you needed to start of with a bit of a... softer touch. If you needed to be tough, well, there was always Tank standing behind you. "All right, then, Genger." You smile as you kneel down in front of him to try and appear less imposing. "I'm not gonna hurt you. My name's Samantha, but you can just call me Sam. You know my sister, Carly?""W-well..." Genger stammers, unsure of whether to answer you or not.>Roll 1d20

>>46868160A solid, admirable roll. Good job, m80.
>>46868160Thank you Based Gods.
>>46868160better this than the 1s from last night's thread.
I bet the bridge crew that were sucked out of the ship are fine for a few minutes since they probably have emergency space helmets.The guy in the heavy armour was environmentally sealed in it, and probably has an oxygen supply, while the bridge crew probably had one of those hardlight helmets. They'll be fine like the bad guys in a Saturday Morning Cartoon.
>>46868389To be fair, that made things interesting last night.If not mortifying, anyway.
>>46868389Where was this?
>>46868126You just give him a sweet, disarming smile, which seems to do the trick. "N-now that you mention it, you do look a lot like her." Genger nods rapidly, starting to calm down but not quite all the way there. "W-what crew are you running with?""I'm Accord Navy." You point out, and remember that you weren't wearing an insignia on your armor. A precaution to uphold plausible deniability. "Navy!?" Genger's eyes widen again."Relax. We're here because we've got a deal with your boss, Felicity." You grunt. "But before we hand you over to her, I'd very much like to hear what you know about Carly.""W-well." Genger coughs. "It all started years ago. when she was practically a kid. I was the ship's navigator and Carly started off as part of the apprentice crew. Skilled kid, though pretty damn lazy most of the time. Pretty damn good a ducking responsibility, too."Yeah, that sounded like Carly."Anyways, during one run, we get hit by a pirate raid, and Felicity herself comes aboard. Turns out she's on one of her recruiting runs where she 'asks' for 'volunteers' to join her pirate gang.""She kidnapped her?!" You grit your teeth."N-no, Carly signed up for it." Genger shakes his head. "Was the first one, actually.">You liar!>Fuck, I should've thought so.>Other
>>46868650>Fuck, I should've thought so.
>>46868622Especially in the whole existential crises and the horror of questioning of what the 'self' is. Woel thinks she went to sleep for the surgery, and wakes up, only to find out that she is not only in an Abyssal body, but her original body is already inhabited by herself. She thinks she's the original. Now she has to go the the mainland and essentially 'retire' for the time being despite having the same memories as Hoel.
>>46868650>>Fuck, I should've thought so.
>>46868650>(Take note of this, you'll want to bring it up with Felicity later for confirmation)>Continue
>>46868595I'm surprised we even managed to ram a guy in heavy armour out into the void in the first place. That guy's Heg suit had armour plates instead of shielding, so it was probably heavier than ours, and all we did was use 50% power which would just normally knock him off his feet.We're either super strong for our size, or we just subconsciously used Biotic Charge to enhance ourselves.
>>46868650>OtherNo reaction. "Go on."
>>46868752>subconsciously used Biotic ChargeMy thoughts exactly.
>>46868752Psionics bud. It's always psionics.
>>46868650>>Fuck, I should've thought so.>>46868752>subconsciously used Biotic Charge to enhance ourselves.Same. I for one almost couldn't believe how my idea of the shield charge actually happened and worked so well!
>>46868952100% Accurate with the 'height adjustments'
>>46868952Nice one Mudhen, though I thought Sam's power armor was as tiny as she was
>>46868952SWEET SAM WITH POWER ARMOR!
>>46869033Well, it could always be compensation for verticality.I think Sam would also look great in Space Knight armor with those little Shield Projectors/ECM domes on the back
>>46868952>"Ha ha! I am the tall one now!"
>>46868650"Fuck, I should've thought so." You groan. Carly always had a bit of a rebellious streak, which was partly why she was never able to get into the Academy. You'd always been a rather moderating influence on her and you had always feared of what she'd get herself into if you weren't around. "Okay," You return your attention to Genger. "Where is she, then?""I don't know!" Genger whimpers. "We got separated into different crews after that. Heard she was being groomed to be one of Felicity's lieutenants, but other than that, i don't know!"You turn to Tank, who shrugs. Looked that that was the extent of his knowledge. But maybe he knew other things...>That's enough interrogation for now. You got what you wanted.>Press him for more info.>Other
>>46868695Well, it leaves open the possibility that Woel and Hoel will team up in the future to torment poor Anna.So, so many possibilities.Anyway! Sister is a willing pirate. What do?
>>46868952Why is Sam decked out in Pharah from Overwatch's power armor?
>>46869159>Press him for more info.
>>46869033Oh shit, was it? I thought I remembered Tank lifting her into a set and then going on a tall rampage last time.
>>46869159>>Press him for more info.
>>46869159>That's enough interrogation for now. You got what you wanted.We need to talk to Felicity.
>>46869159>>That's enough interrogation for now. You got what you wanted.I don't think he knows anymore. But if Felicity wants him back with his head still containing the normal amount of holes she'll tell us more.
>>46869159>That's enough interrogation for now. You got what you wanted.
>>46869159>Press him for more info.>>46869169Reminds me more of Rifts really
>>46869159>>That's enough interrogation for now. You got what you wanted.
>>46868952At this point in time, I think Sam just needs an entire wardrobe of all these outfits (power armor, maid, bunnysuit, etc.). Only a matter of time before we have to infiltrate someplace by dressing up.
>>46869187Wait nah, I reread it, armor's similar to Tank's. My mistake.
>>46869159>>That's enough interrogation for now. You got what you wanted.I think that is all he knows, the captain would know more.
>>46869159You decide to stop things here for now. You already got the info you wanted, so there was no point in pursing things further. "All right, just sit tight and we'll get you back to your crew in short order." You say as you walk out of the cell, unable to stop your armor from just stomping out. Tank dutifully closes the cell door as Genger exhales deeply and slump down in relief, like a man just taken off the execution block. Tank puts a hand on your shoulder, wondering if you're okay. "I'm fine, Tank." You grunt. His grip tightens. He's not convinced. "I'm. Fine." You reiterate. Tank quickly lets go. You then open up comms to the Gullinbursti. "Bradford, are we at the RV point, yet?""Not yet, Captain." Bradford replies. "We've just dropped out of FTL and are on our way there. What do you need?">You need to talk to Felicity right now. >Just let him know the transport is secure.>Other
>>46869504>You need to talk to Felicity right now.
>>46869504>>Just let him know the transport is secure.>>46869290She'd look rather nice in that outfit.
>>46869504>>You need to talk to Felicity right now.
>>46869504>You need to talk to Felicity right now.We still have something she wants.Once she gets her crewman, she'll have no need to stick around and answer our questions.
>>46869686No Anon you got it wrong IF she wants her crewman she's got to stick around.
>>46869546>"And what do I have here in my hat?">"A GUN"
if carly was felicity's henchman, we could have killed her at some point in time!what if carly's favorite food is lobster? And she was there, with tons of lobsters just for personal consumption?
>>46869504"Bradford." You say grimly. "I want to you to open up a comm line with Felicity.""Captain?" Bradford asks curiously."Just do it!" You bark."Yes, Captain." Bradford complies.Your comm piece buzzes as you hear Felicity's voice, distorted but strong."Hmmm? What do you want, dear Samantha?" She purrs.>Talk to her now, over the comm.>You need to meet her privately in person.>Other
>>46869890>>You need to meet her privately in person.
>>46869890>>You need to meet her privately in person.Business between Ship Captains.

>>46869779oh dear. that she better not jam guns into my noodles.
can we just be candid and innocently ask how is carly doing? Just optimistically believe she is fine and DAD HAD DIED WHY DIDNT SHE COME HOME FOR THE FUCKING FUNERAL?!
>>46869890"Hey Felicity, some things have come up, and." You sigh. "Can we meet privately? In person?""Oh, how forward of you!" Felicity giggles. "Should I bring the sexy underwear?""Felicity, I'm serious." You groan. "Can you meet me or not?""Of course!" Felicity nods. "I'll send a shuttle over between our two ships, and we'll meet there. How does that sound?""Fair enough.""Bodyguards, or shall we meet alone~?" You look at Tank, who slowly shakes his head. He of course does not trust the lady pirate. >Go alone.>Bring Tank with you.>Other
>>46870180>>OtherBring Carly, i'll come alone. I know she is there. Don't fuck with me.
>>46870180>Bring Tank with you.

>>46870376Bringing Tank along like a big dumb deaf-mute to discuss pirate sister with her pirate captain why?
>>46870407>>46870414>>46870461You do realize she could capture and hold us ransom REALLY easily now yeah?
>>46870486Stay in power armor that can toss a space marine out the window.
>>46870486yes and? We become the sub and be part of her harem.win, win
>>46870180"We'll do it alone." You say. "As a sign of trust.""Oh, gladly!" Felicity chuckles. "I look forward to seeing you!" That's when the comm line cuts off. "Bradford, prepare a shuttle for me." You instruct him."Roger that, Captain." Bradford sighs. "I don't like this."Tank taps you on the shoulder. He doesn't like this either. "Just do what I say." You grunt as you clamber through the docking collar to the Gullinbursti and head straight for the shuttle bay. You quickly board the shuttle and its autopilot begins to take you to the RV point with Felicity. It's then that you remember that you've completely forgotten to take off your power armor...>Take it off>Leave it on>Other
>>46870544>>Leave it on
>>46870544>Leave it on>>46870486We're still in control of the prisoner, and we have Molly's ship nearby.
>>46870544>Leave it on
>>46870544>>Take it offAsking to meet alone and neglecting to mention you're wearing a tank strikes me as likely to be taken as a sign of bad faith.
>>46870544>>Take it off
>>46870544>Take it offSnake, this is a diplomatic mission.
>>46870544>Take it off
>>46870544>>Take it offWe'll we're meeting one on one. So unless we both get into a sword fight with massive clothing damage, I say take it off.
>>46870544>>Take it ALL off, go nude
>>46870637Harem route go!
say... could we swap to the other more mobility oriented suit? It might be a bit less threatening but still provide some safety.
>>46870730We're already in the shuttle, and didn't bring the light suit with us.
>>46870730I think it's too late, since we're already on the shuttle and the other suit is in the Gullinbursti's armory.
>>46870730Given that the ultimate protection is the Gullinbursti holding on to the prisoner Felicity wants, and also being able to wreck her shit if she does something stupid, I don't really see the need to go in such a way as will obviously put her on edge.
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>46870544>Other>Roll to seduce
>>46870754ah, right and it'd be suspicious to stop off at the ship first... ah well.
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>46870831Best of three!
>>46870869I don't think anyone's gonna beat that.
>>46870869The dice have spoken! Sam might go into the shuttle in her armor, but she isn't leaving in it...
>>46870906Sexy strip tease as Sam does some gymnastics to get out of her power armour while sweaty?
>>46870544You decide to leave your armor on. You couldn't be too careful, after all. You're still dealing with a pirate, and over a potentially touchy issue. You wait for your shuttle to dock with Felicity's, and the airlock door opens.And you're surprised by how well furnished Felicity's shuttle is. Velvet carpet lined the floor and the sofas, with genuine wood furniture littered around and soft interior lighting. It seemed that Felicity really did have an appetite for the fine things in life. "So, Samantha, what did you want to talk about that was so important?" Felicity purrs."Carly." You growl, glaring at the pirate. "Oh, OH!" Felicity's eyes light up. "I KNEW you looked rather familiar! Things make so much sense now"! Felicity starts laughing uncontrollably.>Quit the bullshit. You knew, didn't you?>You really didn't know?>Other
>>46870980>Quit the bullshit. You knew, didn't you?We both know you're not stupid Felicity.
>>46870980>Quit the bullshit. You knew, didn't you?

>>46870980>>Quit the bullshit. You knew, didn't you?
>>46870980>>You really didn't know?
>>46870980>>You really didn't know?She ok?
Why aren't we more angry at her again?
>>46870980>>You really didn't know?I'd believe her considering her general attitude.>>46871164She's been quite affiable and it really didn't see like she was intentionally hiding it.
>>46871164Well I think its a perfectly reasonable assumption on Sam's part that she thinks her crazy sister is no longer a part of Felicity's crew. Also Felicitys a bit of an airhead.
>>46870980"You really didn't know?" You scowl, your armored gauntlets balling into fists as you resist the urge to strangle the pirate."I had my suspicions." Felicity wipes a tear from her eye, her cat ears twitching uncontrollably. "I do see the resemblance! I just never imagined she'd be telling the truth that you were straighter than an arrow! One of the best pirates I've ever mentored and her sister is part of a NAVY! Who would've thought?! "Then you know what I want." You growl. "Where is she? I'm taking her back.""Ah, well, that's going to be a bit complicated." Felicity shrugs. "She's no longer in my employ anymore.""WHAT?!" You stomp forward and grab Felicity by the collar. To her credit, the pirate barely even flinches. "WHAT DID YOU DO TO HER!?""Me? I didn't do anything!" Felicity chortles. "Carly just did what any pirate would do. Stole one of my best ships, some of my best crew, and struck out on her own!""And you're not angry?" You frown."Angry? I'm absolutely proud of her!" Felicity smiles. "All of my other students were just so OBEDIENT and BORING. No potential in them at all! But Carly? She's one in a trillion!" "So, you don't know where she is?" You narrow your eyes."I didn't say that." Felicity shrugs. "But what are you willing to give for that information?>Your life.>...what do you want?>Other>
>>46871326>...what do you want?
>>46871326>>...what do you want?Grrr... TALK!
>>46871326>>...what do you want?
>>46871326>>...what do you want?Calling it right here--she wants a "get out of jail free" card next time she's caught derping around in Accord space.
>>46871326>. "Carly just did what any pirate would do. Stole one of my best ships, some of my best crew, and struck out on her own!"What a surprise>...what do you want?As I don't think Sam is angry enough at Felicity to start threatening her. Carly yes, Felicity no.
>>46871391I'm betting Carly went off to find some great world of alien treasures, and Sam's gonna have to find it
>>46871326"...what do you want?" You narrow your eyes in suspicion."Well..." Felicity gives a hungry smile. "It seems that you went above and beyond and not only freed my man, but the entire prison ship he was on!""Yes, and?" You ask, though you're already guessing her answer."Well, I'm already a bit short handed, thanks in no small part to the Hegemony, and you!" Felicity winks. "Not that I hold it against you or anything! But anyways, I want the ship. Or at least the prisoners. I'll make sure that they all get good homes and hot meals! Pirate's promise!"So, basically, Felicity wanted custody of the prisoners...>You got a deal.>Haggle her down.>No deal.>Other

>>46871725>>You got a deal.Nothing suggests she wants psychopaths and rapists, or is likely to impress completely unwilling or unsuitable people; and it's not like either Sam or the Accord have any use for them.

>>46871725Well, besides coming from a pirate, this seemed like a typical negotiation. Felicity was highballing to try and get as much as she could out of your. However, you weren't about to get trodden all over. You had your own cards to play, after all. Her ship was damaged and you had Molly backing up, making it a 2v1 situation against her.

I'm not exactly too sure why, other than her wanting to strike out for herself. Even though I'm happy for her and all, I still gotta track her down and PUNISH her, for the principle of the matter, so I tried to track her movements best I could...""And?" You try to hurry her along."My sources say she was last seen raiding freighters in Confederacy space. Judging from the hits, she's most likely holed up somewhere in the Stonewall Cluster."

>>46873276The point is to smash Felicity's skull in.

Rolled 14 (1d20)>>46873527
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>46873527Hahaha! Choices have consequences!
>>46873549not today motherfucker, not today.
>>46873615One day, anon. One day, it will all come crashing down in fire and blood.
>>46873527Before you leave, you make sure to pat Felicity on the head, being extra careful not to accidentally crush it with your massive powered armored glove. Felicity purrs again as you do so."Oi, you spoil me too much"! Felicity giggles. "I'll have to get you back for it someday!""I'm sure you will." You chuckle, slightly nervously. Gotta keep your guard up around her from now on. With that, your two respective shuttles separate and return to their own ships."Come on Saaaaaam." Molly whines. "They're RIGHT THERE! We can just blast 'em!""A deals' a deal, Molly." You instruct her. "It'll be bad on our reputation if we renege on them.""Aaaaaaaaaaw!" Molly continues to whine."I thought you would've been happy crushing Hegemony ships." You reply."But I want moooooore!" Molly pouts.Yep, mentally mature indeed."Don't worry, there's more pirates in the void we can blast." You assure her.Upon returning to the Gullinbursti, you quickly strip off your bulky armor and take a quick shower. Even with internal cooling systems, wearing those things made you hot and sweaty. You wonder just how Tank could tolerate wearing them 24/7. After finishing cleaning yourself up, you head back to the bridge, where Bradford was overseeing things. Amy kept her hands on the helm and Elsa kept weapons powered up and ready in case Felicity got any funny ideas, while Lida kept an eye on the sensors."Captain." Bradford nods, ceding the bridge to you. "So what do we do with all of these prisoners?""We give half to Felicity, and we keep the other half." You explain. "So we're going to have to do some filtering."(cont)
>>46873838"I pulled up the ship's prisoner roster." Lida announces. "I've sorted them based on the crime they were convicted of, and they fall in to three categories."Bradford takes a look at the list and frowns."Let's see, there's the violent offenders. Captured pirates, murderers, and general scum. Next are people in for minor or nonviolent crimes, and the last are people imprisoned for political reasons.""We're seriously not going to just hand over the hardcore guys to the pirates, are we?" Amy frowns. "We'll basically just be setting them loose, then.""Loose on the Hegemony." Elsa clarifies. "It'll be their problem, not ours.'"Well, those are most certainly the types I'm sure she'll want." You sigh. Too bad, though. You had to send her SOMETHING. She was expecting half of the prisoners, after all.>Send her the violent prisoners.>Send her the nonviolent prisoners.>Send her the political prisoners.>Other
>>46873861>Send her the violent prisoners.
>>46873861>Send her the political prisoners.The prisoners who're too busy writing autobiographies and manifestos to do proper pirating.
>>46873861>>Send her the nonviolent prisoners.
>>46873861>>Send her the violent prisoners.We're setting them free on the Hegemony AND her.
>>46873861>Send her the nonviolent prisoners.
>>46873861We should keep the political prisoners, they might have useful information or connections. Some might even be accord or accord sympathetic.
>>46873861>>Send her the violent prisoners.
>>46873861>Send her the violent prisoners.>Other: Ask for volunteers from among the nonviolent crimes prisoners; after being in a Heg prison, some of them will want paybackThe political prisoners would be a goldmine for Accord Intelligence, so she definitely doesn't get them.
>>46873861>>Send her the violent prisoners.Keep the worst. send her the pirates>>Send her the nonviolent prisoners.Smuglers/theives should do fineOr do this>>46873890 For shits and giggles.
>>46873861>>Send her the nonviolent prisoners.Turning in political prisoners will net us a bit of favor with the Accord higher-ups, I'd think.
>>46873861>Send her the violent prisoners.Tell her though as a warning.
>>46873861>Send her the violent prisoners.Nothing but the best for our friends in the hegemony.
>>46873861>Send her the nonviolent prisoners.>>46873838>"Oi, you spoil me too much"! Felicity giggles. "I'll have to get you back for it someday!"Hopefully Elizabeth will have a maid outfit ready for her by then.
>>46873861"We'll send over the violent prisoners." You instruct them. "The Hegemony can consider it a favor that we're giving them a chance to arrest them again. Just be sure to tell them and Felicity that if any of them show up in Accord space, we will be VERY disappointed.""On it, Captain." Bradford nods, obviously unhappy with this arrangement. Quickly enough, the transfer is complete. The prisoners Felicity wanted are shipped over to her ship, officially making them her and the Hegemony's problem now. Meanwhile, you have a captured prison transport as well as a number of liberated prisoners that Accord Intelligence would very much like to talk to."All in all, not a bad haul." Elizabeth smiles as she she goes over the prisoner list. "A lot of would be defectors and and dissidents here. People we can use.""Uh uh." You say absentmindedly, staring out the viewport."Something bothering you?" Elizabeth asks."Pffft, there's always something bothering her." Amy rolls her eyes. Oh, that's right. You hadn't told them about Carly yet, but... should you? At this point, the only person on your crew who knew was Tank, and he was pretty lipped. >Tell them.>Keep it secret for now.>Other
>>46874340>>Keep it secret for now.
>>46874340>>Tell them.I don't see why not. MY LONG LOST SISTAH IS PIRATE. LETS GO FIND HER!
>>46874340>>Tell them.Trust the crew
>>46874340>>Keep it secret for now.Keep business and personal matters separate
Reminder Woel best girl.
>>46874340>>Tell them.no reason not to, Sam has known these people for a long time and Elizabeth being a super spy will probably find out anyways
>>46874340>>Tell them.Better let them know on our terms instead of someone else's
>>46874340>>Keep it secret for now.This is a Tank and Sam special secret. No spoilers.
>>46874340>Keep it secret for now.
>>46874532She lives on in Outer Heaven
>>46874340"Yeah, well, I found out what my sister is still alive and turned pirate." You sigh."What!?" Everybody's attention is suddenly grabbed, and you feel a bit awkward as the entire bridge's eyes are drawn to you."Y-yeah." You nod reluctantly. "Apparently she got recruited by Felicity at some point, and then she split off to pirate on her own.""My condolences, Captain." Bradford nods in sympathy."Aw shit, that sucks." Amy gasps."Shit." Elsa shakes her head. "So what will you do about her?" Lida asks.>I honestly don't know.>I'm gonna drag her ass back home, that's what.>It seems like it's what she wants.>Other
>>46874769>>I'm gonna drag her ass back home, that's what.
>>46874769>>I honestly don't know.There has to be a reason somewhere.
>>46874769>>I'm gonna drag her ass back home, that's what.And see Dad.
>>46874769>>I'm gonna drag her ass back home, that's what.One way or another, she's coming with me!
>>46874785Trying to find the planet of space elves? Locating missing populations with psionic potential? Eternal hedonistic orgy? Making a male clone of Sam/herself?
>>46874769>I honestly don't know.
>>46874769>I'm gonna drag her ass back home, that's what.
>>46874855Depends on how much of an adventure she needs, or if she's concerned about helping people. Besides, everyone knows that boy!Sam is 10x cuter than regular Sam despite him being the typical 90's "Mom, stop embarrassing me" kid.
>>46874769>>I honestly don't know.>>But I want to hear why she did that.
>>46874769"I'm gonna drag her ass back home, that's what." You growl. "We didn't go through all that effort of putting her into space just so she could go pirate!""Awww, that some sisterly love, right there!" Amy chuckled."Makes me almost wish i had one!" Elsa joined in. "I thought the Captain was already basically our sister." Lida frowned."Pffft, more like an overbearing mother." Amy rolled her eyes."You three can stop that now." You glower at them. "Awwww, does the Captain need a hug?" Amy coos.>All right, but only a small one!>No hugs, we're still on duty.>Other
>>46874972>>No hugs, we're still on duty.
>>46874972>>No hugs, we're still on duty.>inb4 Amy offers a kiss instead
>>46874972>No hugs, we're still on duty.>>46874947>90s kidSo he also rides a skateboard and talk about things being awesome and gnarly?

>>46875178yaymy vote wonunlike in the upcoming POTUS election
>>46875178BEAR HUGS ARE BEST HUGS
>>46874972"All right, but only a small one." You grumble. "C'mere!" Amy says with a smile as she wraps her arms around you."Group hug!" Elsa joins in. "Group hug." Lida echoes.Heh, you know, this was kinda nice-And that's when you see Amy's smile take a sinister turn.Oh no.THAT BITCH."Hahaha! Ya totally fell for it!" Amy cackles. "No escape now!""You just walked right into that one!" Elsa grins."Traitors!" You yell."Hey, Elsa, the Cap says she down, right? Maybe we should brighter her mood?""Uh huh." Elsa nods. "How about a wardrobe change?"Oh no, they wouldn't-"Elizabeth, how's that 'slutty maid' costume going along?""Finished in just the nick of time!" Elizabeth says proudly."You too?!" You gasp."Sorry, Captain, but I just couldn't resist!" Elizabeth smiles brightly. "It was a very demanding project!""Bradford!" You look to your First Mate."You know as well as I do that I don't get involved in these petty squabbles, Captain." Bradford says as she stares ahead out the viewport. "You got yourself into this one, Captain.""TRAITORS! ALL OF YOU!" You bellow as you're dragged out of the bridge."I wonder what Tank will think when he sees you in your new digs!" Amy giggles."FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF">And that's all for tonight! As always, next thread is next week, and don't forget KanColle on Friday!
