It takes a second to register that you're not in your regular quarters, but in Carly's, sleeping on the top bunk of the bunk bed she was keeping in her room for some unknowable reason. Naturally, you had won the top bunk from your little sister, as was your privilege and right as the elder sibling. However, as you try to climb out of your bed, you realize that something is weighing you down. You toss off your bed covers, and find Carly wrapped around your waist and fast asleep, snoring softly. When did she-?!And a loud clanking causes your head to tilt up to see Tank of all people sitting on a chair that was far, FAR to small for him, facing the bunk bed and glaring at Carly behind the crimson lenses of his helmet. How that chair was supporting his weight, you had no idea. Was... was he just sitting there watching you sleep all night?!?>Ask Tank what the hell he's doing.>Better wake Carly up.>REMOVE LITTLE SISTER>Other
>>48314053>OtherAsk Tank how has that chair not collapsed yet
>>48314053>Ask Tank what the hell he's doing.

>>48314053>Wave to tank and then cuddle our little sister, It's been so long since she's done this.
>>48314053>>OtherHug the sister, we missed this too but swear Tank to secrecy
So in the unlikely event where we have the option of going for a different ship (either through our old one getting blasted to bits, or adding a new ship to the fleet), what should we like to upgrade to?
>>48314053>OtherT-tank you baka!
>>48314053>Ask tank what he is doingGday from Aus!
>>48314203Probably either a light carrier, or an upgunned frigate.
>>48314203A fucking battlestar would be nice even though it'll only be in my dreams
>>48314203Always have to go with a Cruiser for being able to operate independently for a long time.
>>48314280Unless this turns into a Gundam series, carriers are pretty terrible as lone patrol craft
>>48314203Doesn't really matter to me, as long as we get a few starfighters or drone fighters.
>>48314053"Taaaaaaaank." You glare at your bodyguard while still laying in the bed, careful not to wake up Carly.Tank immediately snaps to attention, his arms flailing as he tries to explain himself. After all, he saw Carly crawling into the top bunk while you were asleep, and he couldn't very well just leave her up there unsupervised, so he decided to just standby until you woke up. "That doesn't explain how you saw Carly getting into my bed in the first place." You narrow your eyes.Tank freezes up, unable to come up with a satisfactory answer.>PUNISH HIM>Eh, you'll let him off the hook this time.>Other
>>48314586>>Eh, you'll let him off the hook this time.Well, it has been a while since Carly slept in the same bed with Sam....
>>48314586>>PUNISH HIMDamnit Tank
>>48314586>>Eh, you'll let him off the hook this time.
>>48314586>Eh, you'll let him off the hook this time.Not like we can punish him as pirates
>>48314586>>Eh, you'll let him off the hook this time.Meh, he was probably just worried. I'm not going to berate him for being properly paranoid and doing his job as our body-guard.
>>48314586>OtherUncomfortable glare until he snaps.
>>48314586>Eh, you'll let him off the hook this time.>Just so you know in the future Tank, Carly's okayed for that kind of stuff, She's my little sister, Unless she tries to pull a prank.....
>>48314586>>Eh, you'll let him off the hook this time.>Just so you know in the future Tank, Carly's okayed for that kind of stuff, She's my little sister, Unless she tries to pull a prank.....
>>48314586You continue your accusing glare towards Tank, making him continually uncomfortable under your withering gaze. You swear you could see the large, armored warrior shrink several sizes like a meek puppy that had been caught misbehaving. However, you understood that Tank was just being cautious and had good intentions. You'll let him off the hook... this time."Well, you're lucky that I'm in a good mood." You huff as you pat your sleeping sister's head. "I'll just let you off with a warning this time. But can we have some privacy, please?"Tank salutes with a loud Clank as he quickly, but quietly, makes his escape from the room. Carly mumbles something unintelligible under her breath as she squeezes your belly tighter. >You should wake her up.>Try to wriggle out of her grasp without waking her up.>Other
>>48314924>Cuddle your little sister, It's been so long and she's so cute~!

Rolled 5 (1d20)>>48315201
>>48315201You decide to cuddle your sister. It's been so long and she's just so damn cute like this! You shift your body around a bit so you can get into a better position to pull Carly's head up closer to your lever, and with one powerful YANK you break her grip on you and grab her in your own hug, nuzzling your cheek against hers."Gooooooood morning!" You chime happily. "SAM WHAT THE FUCK!" Garbles as she furiously thrashes in your grip. She manages to worm herself free and leaps off the bunk bed, landing on the deck with catlike grace. "I'm sorry, you just looked sooooo cute sleeping with me like that!" You laugh."The fuck I did!" Carly complains. "You kidnap me or something?"Looks like she didn't remember...>Oh yeah, I totally kidnapped you~.>Nope, you came up here all on your own~!>Other
>>48315573>>Nope, you came up here all on your own~!

>>48314257BY POKING FUN AND MAKING MERRYA JOURNEY WON'T BE HALF AS SCARY
>>48315573"Nope! You came up here all on your own~!" You giggle. "L-LIES!" Carly wails."I guess you still really love your dear old big sister!" You continue to tease."I'm the captain of this ship! I don't need to take this kind of abuse!" Carly fumes as she stamps her foot impetuously. "Awwwww, is widdle Carly upset? Does she want her bottle?" You coo."Agh!" Carly throws her arms up in the air in frustration before spinning around and stomping for the door."Awwwwww, Carly, don't be like that!" You laugh. However, she's already out the door. Still in her pajamas.What a silly girl.>You should probably go save Carly from some embarrassment. >You should go track down Tank to see what he's up to now.>You should go see if Scott and Arty have killed each other yet.>Other
>>48315929>You should probably go save Carly from some embarrassment.
>>48315929>You should go see if Scott and Arty have killed each other yet.And we find them cuddling in each other's arms
>>48315929>>You should probably go save Carly from some embarrassment.Does she wear space themed print on her pyjamas they?
>>48315929>You should go track down Tank to see what he's up to now.
>>48315929>>You should probably go save Carly from some embarrassment.
>>48315929>>You should go track down Tank to see what he's up to now.
>>48315977>Not Pirate themed PJs with skulls and crossbones, pirate ships, and cutlasses.
>>48315977>>48316030Even better, Carly wears SPACE PIRATE themed pjs.
>>48315929>You should go see if Scott and Arty have killed each other yet.
>>48315929>>You should go see if Scott and Arty have killed each other yet.
>>48315929You quickly leap out of the bed, landing on the deck with not quite the catlike grace Carly does, but at least you don't trip and faceplant on the floor. You then chase Carly out of the room, fortunately managing to catch her in the hallway before she can reach the lift."Caaaaaaarly!" You cry out."What!" Carly spins around, a foul look on her face."You're still in your 'jammies." You point out. Carly then looks down, in her pirate themed pajamas with skulls and crossbones emblazoned all over it and her face immediately fires up red. "C'mon." You laugh as you pat her on the shoulder. "Let's go get changed." You're both silent as you return to the room and strip off your pajamas to change. However, as you reach for your uniform, Carly stops you by grabbing your hand. "Wait a sec!" She wags her finger. "You really think you can just parade around my hideout with an Accord uniform?""Why not?" You raise an eyebrow."Image, Sis! Image!" Carly tuts. "How are the rest of my crew gonna trust me if I bring an Accord officer on board?"Your sister then digs into her closet and tosses a pair of well used and worn pants, a shirt, and a jacket. Simple civilian garb that the pirates generally wore."That should do it!" Carly nods.>You're not gonna dress up as a pirate!>You suppose it's the wise choice.>Other
>>48316184>>You suppose it's the wise choice.
>>48316184>You suppose it's the wise choice.
>>48316184>>You suppose it's the wise choice.Nice to have some casual stuff. Might take a while to remember that it isn't skintight.
>>48316184>>You suppose it's the wise choice.When in rome...
>>48316184>You suppose it's a wise choice.
>>48316184>You suppose it's the wise choice
>>48316184>You suppose it's the wise choice.I suggest a comfy sweater.
>>48316243>The only sweater on the ship is a green one like Bradford's>it really is one of Bradford's
>>48316274>Across Carly's adventures, she 'found' a shit ton of different outfits and costumes for Heists and Robberies, and for some 'personal uses'.
>>48316184>find something outlandish.
>>48316184"I suppose it's the wise choice..." You sigh as you reluctantly put on the casual clothes. It feels so weird, wearing something that wasn't form fitting. It made you feel so much smaller in a way. "Heh, trouble getting used to wearing normal people clothes?" Carly grins smugly. "I just need to break it in." You assure her, stretching out your arms and legs."Uh huh, sure." Carly chuckles. "Wanna grab something to eat?">Sure let's go.>I want to check on Tank first.>I want to see the state of the repairs first.>Other
>>48316439>>I want to see the state of the repairs first.
>>48316439>I want to check on tank first. Gotta make sure Mecha-husbando is playing nice with the supped up robot butler.
>>48316439>Sure let's go.
>>48316439>>I want to see the state of the repairs first.Time to see how much progress we've made.Also, maybe jokingly offer her an Accord uniform for her to wear.
>>48316439>>I want to see the state of the repairs first.Always the Captain, even if this isn't her ship.
>>48316439>I want to check on Tank first.
>>48316439>I want to see the state of the repairs first.
>>48316439"I want to see the state of the repairs first." You announce. "We've been taking short FTL jumps, right?""Yep, so we don't stress the drive too much." Carly confirms. "Just about the only thing Artya and your guy can agree on.""I'm surprised they haven't killed each other yet." You sigh."Ah, well, we won't know until we see them, right?" Carly nudges you in the side."I suppose..."The two of you head down to the engine room, where the FTL drive was located. At least you could notice some differences, in that the room did not look as if a hurricane had gone through it and wrecked everything. However, what you did see was Artya and Scott fast asleep, both of them propped up against the wall side by side, tools still in their hands as sparking wires and leaking pipes and coolant lines were scattered all around them. And all through it they were snoring softly. All that broken equipment couldn't have been essential, if they were sleeping on the job like that."Aaaaaaaw, how cute." You coo."Totally." Carly nods as she snaps a picture with her datapad. "I guess it was nice to get somebody who could understand Artya's hobby."You note the irony, considering the "language" gulf between Scott and Artya. >Better get them back to work.>Nah, they deserve some rest.>Other
>>48316726>Nah, they deserve some rest.
>>48316726>>Nah, they deserve some rest.Time for Breakfast. Call dibs on the eggs.
>>48316726>>Othertry to arrange them in a funny pose
>>48316726>>Nah, they deserve some rest.Who else can we bug? Or is therwe any way we can get in touch with FroYo if there are any outstanding contracts we can grind through in the meantime?
>>48316726>>Better get them back to work.
>>48316726>>Nah, they deserve some rest.
>>48316726You briefly consider waking them up in order to continue repairs, but you reconsidering, deciding that the two engineers deserved some well earned rest. Besides, considering that the ship hadn't exploded or fallen apart, you consider that the repairs they've managed were adequate enough. "I guess things are okay for now." You shrug."Yeah, I think so so, too." Carly smiles."WILL YOU MEATBAGS EAT YOUR DISGUSTING ORGANIC GLOP OR NOT." Bolts buzzes at it stomps into the room with all the grace and subtlety of a giant death machine. "IT'S GOING TO GET COLD IF YOU DON'T EAT IT, CAPTAIN.""Oh, right!" Carly nods and points to the sleeping Scott and Artya. "Sorry about that, Bolts! Can you keep an eye on these two clowns here?""CAN I RIP APART THAT BONESACK?" Bolts points to Scott. "I HAVEN'T PROPERLY TERMINATED AN ORGANIC LIFEFORM IN THE LAST THREE HUNDRED HOURS.""Cool it, Bolts. You'll get your chance!" Carly laughs nervously and turns to you. "That's just his way of being nice. Honest!""I AM NOT NICE. I AM A KILLING MACHINE." Bolts corrects. "I GENERALLY ENJOY KILLING SQUISHY HUMANS.">He doesn't look nice at all!>He's pretty sweet, actually.>Other
>>48317045>He's pretty sweet, actually.
>>48317045>>He's pretty sweet, actually.
>>48317059Is that tsundere Shodan?
>>48317045>He's pretty sweet, actually.>You look out for Carly, Therefore you're okay in my book!
>>48317045>He's pretty sweet, actually.>If you generally enjoy killing humans, when do you not enjoy it,
>>48317045"He's pretty sweet, actually." You giggle. "And if he looks out for you, Carly, then he's okay in my book!""ERROR. NO PREPARED RESPONSE." Bolt's head jerks around a bit. "Awwww, look at that, you made him flustered!" Carly laughs. "I guess he likes you, too!""COUNTERPOINT. DUE TO 90% FACIAL SIMILARITY MY FACIAL RECOGNITION SOFTWARE CANNOT GIVE PROPER DATA INPUTS TO MY IFF SYSTEM TO DIFFERENTIATE SAMANTHA FROM THE CAPTAIN." Bolts tries to explain. "Suuuuuuure. You stick with that explanation!" Carly cackles as she pats the giant killbot 's arm. "Well, me and Sis are gonna grab some chow. You hold down the fort here!""AFFIRMATIVE." Bolts gives an electronic sigh. "He's an odd robot." You note to Carly when you're fairly sure you're out of range of Bolts' auditory sensors."Yeah, well, you try having your AI core rot in a dump for god knows how long and then cobbled back together by whatever black technomagic Artya uses." Carly shrugs. The two of you then reach the mess hall which... is much larger and more crowded than the one on the Gullinbursti. Well, it made sense, considering the Longclaw's systems had to be operated manually and weren't automated. Nobody seems to mind Carly's presence or yours, as the two of you blend in the with crowds of pirates, all wearing an assortment mishmash of clothes ranging from regular casual wear and scavenged work clothes to cobbled together suits of combat armor and exotic accessories. Truly, this was an army of individuals. (cont)
>>48317344"Come on! Sit down!" Carly motions to a table that is kept conspicuously empty, no doubt reserved for her. There's already two trays of food prepared and placed on the table. Not exactly the processed stuff you get from the Gullinbursti's fabricators. It was the real deal that had to be stored, prepared, and manually cooked. Still, you had to admit that cooked bacon smelled WAAAAAAAAAAY better than the fabricated kind. "So... that Tank dude." Carly continues as she crams bacon (that's pretty much the only food on her plate) into her mouth. "Does he like, ever take that armor off?""I'm sure he does." You shrug as you sip at the extremely powerful coffee."Have you ever SEEN him take it off?" Carly raises an eyebrow as she chews."Not really. He's pretty private like that." You shake your head."Not even his helmet?""Nope.""Jesus, Sis!" Carly frowns. "You mean to tell you've got this guy at your beck and call AND YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE?""I guess not." You shrug. "AND THIS IS SOMEHOW OKAY!?" Carly gasps. "Like... aren't you even the least bit curious? What if Tank's a robot, or an alien or... or... actually a GIRL?!?">I wouldn't mind~.>I guess I never thought about it. >Now that you mention it...>I'm not really interested.>Other
>>48317349>I guess I never thought about it.
>>48317349>>I guess I never thought about it.Meh.
>>48317349>I guess I never thought about it.>I wouldn't mind~.
>>48317349>I guess I never thought about it.>I wouldn't mind, Tank's a part of the crew and a great friend.
>>48317349>I wouldn't mind~.
>>48317349>>I guess I never thought about it.
>>48317349>>I wouldn't mind~.
>>48317349>I wouldn't mind~.>I guess I never thought about it.
>>48317349>>I wouldn't mind~."And I got feeling if i try to see him without his helmet, the cosmic will just throw something to prevent me doing so"
so what are the chances of tank being a girl?
>>48317433Zero percent.Tank is not a girl.Tank *is*.
>>48317433Tank is an alien cyborg girl.
>>483174330%, Tank is simply Tank.
>>48317349"I guess I never thought about it." You shrug as you nibble a strip of bacon. Holy crap was it good!"Really?" Carly gasps in shock. "Like, you've been with him for what, YEARS, I assume, and it's never occurred to you what he looks like under that mug?""Nope." You shrug casually again."Christ, you're a real weirdo, you know that?" Carly points an accusing fork at you. "How'd he even BECOME a cop, anyways? Don't they have to, you know, actually check his ID?""Well, I never exactly asked questions." You shrug again. Man, this was some really fucking good bacon."How'd you even meet, anyways?" Carly narrows her eyes."Now THAT, is a story for another day" You smile as you finish another strip of bacon."Fuckin' tease." Carly groans when her comm beeps. "Yeah?""U-um, we're r-ready for the final jump to base!" You hear Carly's navigator, Anne, squeak through the comm. "U-unless you have anything else to do?""Um, I don't think so." Carly glances at you. "Ya got anything you want to take care of, first?">Let me track down Tank. >Nah, I'm good.>Other
>>48317552>>Nah, I'm good.
>>48317552>Nah, I'm good.
>>48317552>Let me track down Tank.
>>48317552>>Nah, I'm good.Time to get to business.
>>48317552>>Let me track down Tank.
>>48316332I'm just waiting for the "Stuck on a Tropical Island Paradise Planet" so we have an excuse to put everyone in swimwear.
>>48317703>Not the 'two people trapped together so they're forced to undergo character and relationship development before getting rescued at the end' episode
>>48317552"Nah, I'm good." You assure her."All right, Anne! Full speed ahead!" Carly responds through the comm. "A-All right! Jumping in thirty seconds!" Anne warns before the comm cuts off.On cue, a warning siren blares throughout the ship, letting everybody know an FTL jump was imminent. Even though usually nothing happened, most of the crew still braced themselves and their belongings, just in case. The world goes fuzz for a second as the ship transitions from sublight to FTL speeds, and you can feel your stomach churn. The Long Claw's dampening systems to mitigate the side effects of sudden FTL travel weren't nearly as powerful or advanced as those on the Gullinbursti, so the jump was a bit "rougher."You follow Carly to the bridge just in time for the Long Claw to drop out of FTL, showing a gray, rather barren planet."Nice place." You observe somewhat sarcastically. "Hey, when you live free, good living space is a bit hard to come by, so beggars can't be choosers!" Carly grunts before trotting over to Anne, who was busy working the controls and generally looking very stressed. "S-so we're just going to stay in orbit, right?" Anne stammers. "Nope, we gotta get this baby in dock for a full overhaul!" Carly tuts. That means we're gonna have to land!""L-L-Land?!" Anne starts to visibly sweat."Um, is she okay?" You ask with concern."Ah, don't worry, Anne always gets a bad case of the nerves!" Carly laughs loudly to try and put you at ease. "C'mon, Anne! You've done it a hundred times before! There's nothing to it!""O-okay!" Anne nods as she takes a deep breath and grasps the controls.>Ask Carly what Anne's deal it.>You should probably strap yourself in...>Other
>>48317807>>You should probably strap yourself in...Maybe put on an EVA suit just in case, not that we don't have faith in Anne.
>>48317807>>You should probably strap yourself in...Welp
>>48317807>You should probably strap yourself in...
>>48317807>>You should probably strap yourself in...
>>48317807>You should probably strap yourself in...TORI KAJI IPPAI
>>48317807You... decide to sit in one of the nearby chairs and securely strap yourself in. Just in case."A-all right! Beginning descent!" Anne whimpers as she points the Long Claw's bow towards the planet below. "So uh, what's the name of this planet, anyways?" You ask Carly."No idea!" Carly grins. "Nobody really living here anyways, so it doesn't really matter all that much.""I see..." You nod and then wince as the Long Claw hits atmosphere, causing the entire ship to shudder."Oh crap, I probably should have made sure if Artya got around to patching up the hull damage." Carly puts a hand to her chin. "Ah well, it's no big deal.""No big deal?" You groan. "Well, worst thing that can happen is the hull breaks up and we all die!" Carly cackles."What?!" You groan."WHAT?!" Anne shrieks. "Don't worry! Everything will be fiiiiiine!" Carly cackles right as a you can see a piece of hull plating snap off and fly past the bridge windows.>Remain calm.>PANIC>Other
>>48318055>Remain CalmSo this is how we die.Proceed to murder sister if we make it out alive.
>>48318055>>OtherHug the Anne. Headpat spam
we ded, long live the thread
>>48318055You just close your eyes, take a deep breath, and lean back in your seat. There was no sense panicking now. If the ship was gonna break up and kill you all, then there wasn't much you could do about it, other than die with some sort of dignity. However, Carly's whooping and shouting was not helping at all. "YEEHAW! RIDE THAT WIND, ANNE!" Carly cheers."I-I need to concentrate, Captain!" Anne wails. "Aw, ya got this in the bag! Or do ya need a little encouragement~?" Carly giggles. "D-don't touch me theeeereeee!" Anne complains and giggles at the same time. "I-I-I t-ticklish there!"Finally, the rumbling stops, and you finally work up the courage to open your eyes, thankfully seeing that the Long Claw had managed to break through the atmosphere intact, and was now casually flying a few thousand feet above the planet's surface. Down this low, the ground look just as dead and desolate as it did up in orbit."Inviting place." You grunt."It takes a bit of getting used to, yeah." Carly nods as she give Anne one last pat on the back before returning to you. "The atmosphere is breathable, but there just aren't any nutrients in the ground to support plant life,. Guess that's why they abandoned trying to terraform the place.""Huh?" You blink."Oh yeah, our hideout is this old terraforming complex." Carly grins. "Used to be some kind of missile launching facility where they'd launch rockets seeded with chemicals and other shit into the high atmosphere to try and encourage plant growth. But the place was abandoned waaaaaay before we got here!"(cont)
>>48318267"Interesting." You nod. "S-sorry about the rough entry!" Anne apologizes profusely. "A-atmospheric flight isn't exactly my specialty!" "No worries." You give a reassuring smile. "We made it in one piece, so everything's fine.""T-thank you!" As you talk, the Long Claw begins to descend to what looks to be a series of missile silos dug right into the rocky ground. Among the silos, you could see massive rectangular opening, no doubt leading to an underground hangar or storage area. Anne carefully maneuvers the Long Claw with care and precision into the hangar, finally setting the Long Claw down."And we're home!" Carly says happily. "Let's get our shit unloaded and get this ship fixed!"A cheer rings throughout the ship as the landing ramps open up, disgorging hundreds of pirates while dozens more pour in to perform service. "Well, I'm gonna go meet with my lieutenants." Carly explains as she heads for the exit. "I gotta convince 'em to go along with this, so just wait here till I'm done, okay?">Sure thing.>Oh no, I'm going with you.>Other
>>48318289>Sure thing.>I'm gonna go find out where Tank's gotten to.
>>48318289>Sure thing.>Meet up with Tank.
>>48318289>Sure thing.>Find Tank.
>>48318289>>Oh no, I'm going with you.I swear that one of these days, we'll find the remains of an intelligent alien species on one of these barren planets
>>48318289"Sure thing, I guess." You sigh as you lean back in your chair again. "Let us know what happens, then.""Sure thing!" Carly chuckles as she gives you a little wave and dashes out of the bridge.Well, at least this gave you the opportunity to go and find Tank. However, before you can even think of heading out, you immediately receive a ping on your personal comms. A direct message from Tank.Something was wrong, and it was making him uneasy.And by this point, you knew that whenever Tank was uneasy, trouble usually followed...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week! And don't forget KanColle on Friday!
>>48318414Thanks for running, Merc!
>>48318414See you next time, Merc.Considering that Carly knows where the hideout is located, my guess is that some of her comrades don't like the idea of her leaving with that knowledge...
>>48318414Thanks for running as always!
>>48318414Thanks for running!
>>48318395And then that'll probably be the single event that reveals to Sam about terrible secrets held between the factions as they're all locked in a shadow war over alien tech, and how to use it to modify their forces.
>>48318414Thanks for the run!
>>48318454Let's just prepare for the possibility that we may need to stir up a lot of trouble in a mad dash through hundreds of pirates, and back to the ship to get Carly out of there (Or we become some sort of god-tier psychic diplomancer in a few hours and negotiate her release).And that's not considering the possibility that Carly may be hunted by some salty people looking for revenge if we do make it out of there.
>>48318476>Turns out the space elves are still alive, but merely observing, and biding their time
>>48318518If we really want to stir up some chaos, we could always do a good old fashioned sibling switch.We look similar enough to Carly to pose as her if we make a few adjustments to Sam's physique and hair, and I think we can pull a pretty good impression of her.
>>48318597"You thought you were talking with Captain Carly, but I, the cute tactical genius, "Captain Carly" arranged to have a slightly less cute body double take my place!"
>>48318645But the boooobs.
>>48318723We'll just have to assist Carly in making hers bigger.
>>48318723>>48318723Oh, well, I think we can find some tape somewhere around the ship to bind them down a bit. Or we can say that, "The Great Captain Carly" is using a push-up bra, or padding (the Cute Captain Carly most definitely does not use padding due to any perceived insecurities).
>>48318723Whose are bigger Carly or Sam?
