You had managed to pick up the IMC deserters and convince them to join up with the Frontier Militia. Thanks to the repair of a planetary defense cannon, which was fixed thanks in no small part to you, you had managed to buy enough time for the IMC deserters to load up and evacuate the system.So, now the Vengeance was leading a small flotilla of beat up but still brand new IMC warships and transports back to Harmony, where they could be processed. However, due to the haste in which the evacuation was carried out, that also meant the Vengeance had to take on some of the deserters as passengers, including their apparent commander, Hessler, and her lieutenant/enforcer Hess. You give a loud yawn as you wake up from a much needed rest. Rubbing your eyes, you wonder what you should do today. The ship wouldn't be reaching Harmony for at least another day, so you had plenty of free time in the meanwhile.>Go check out the workshop and see how Naru is doing.>Hang out in the hangar with BLL.>See what Tarin is up to in the bridge.>Other
>>1256922>>Hang out in the hangar with BLL.Time for Titans and SAMURAI JACK!

>>1256922>See what Tarin is up to in the bridge.>>1256930Mah nigga.
>>1256922You decide to head down the workshop to check up Naru and see how she was holding up. Now that the IMC deserters were on your side, and that you had salvaged a number of IMC Titan wrecks, she had a hell of a time trying get through it all. Maybe she needed a bit of help?However, as you enter, you immediately know that there was going to be trouble when you see Hess present, apparently pestering Naru."Wow, I never figured you'd be able to crack a Spyglass unit!" Hess circles Amadeus with wonderment. "They always said that that they were impossible to hack!""W-well, the unit WAS heavily damaged, so quite a few of its systems weren't fully functional..." Naru stammers, her cheeks red. "It took quite a bit of time rebuilding the components from scratch-""You mean you rebuilt it from the ground up?!" Hess' one eye widens in shock. "The specs are still classified, even in the Core Worlds!""W-w-w-well..." Naru turns even redder from embarrassment. >Help bail Naru out. >DOUBLE TEAM NARU>Other
>>1257175>Help bail Naru out.Poor girl isn't good with attention.
>>1257175>>Help bail Naru out.

>>1257175>Help bail Naru out.Do not anger the person who knows the ins-and-outs of how all your shit works.
>>1257175>Help bail Naru out.
>>1257175"Hey now, Naru's a busy girl. She's our ship's engineer, after all!" You grin as you pat Hess on the shoulder. "How about we leave her to her work, huh?""But, buuuuut...!" Hess whines until finally complying. "Fiiiiine. It's just that ship travel is so booooooooring!""Well, it can't be that bad." You frown. "You try sitting around on a ship in cryo sleep for at least two years and see how that feels." Hess grumbles."...point." You concede."Well hey, you're not busy, right?" Hess' eye flashes. "You know anything cool to do on this rust bucket?"Jeez, out of the Titan, Hess really did seem like a kid.>Show off each other's Titans.>Introduce her to Ramirez in the Armory.>Lead her to the bridge.>Maybe let her hang out with the grunts?>Other
>>1257357>Introduce her to Ramirez in the Armory.
Well it was nice to see Jack back on screen.>>1257357>>Show off each other's Titans.
>>1257357>>Introduce her to Ramirez in the Armory.
>>1257357>Lead her to the bridge.
>>1257357>Show off each other's Titans.
>>1257357>>Introduce her to Ramirez in the Armory.RAMIREZ, ENTERTAIN THIS GIRL
>>1257357"Well hey, if there's anybody that knows how to have a good time on this ship, it's gonna be Ramirez." You grin as you lead Hess along. The armory of course was a short walk over, where Ramirez was polishing up his cherished Devotion. "Oh, hey girls, come to check out the collection?" Ramirez grins. "Is that a Devotion?" Hess' eye shines with glee. "You can hardly find these anywhere in the Core Worlds anymore!""Because they're so rare and prized?" Ramirez grins."No, because using them is considered a war crime!" Hess replies happily."...oh." Ramirez deflates just a tad before recovering. "Anyways, what brings you girls here?">How about a bit of sparring?>You know anything fun to do on this ship?>Other
>>1257501>You know anything fun to do on this ship?
>>1257501>>How about a bit of sparring?
>>1257501>>How about a bit of sparring?Show me ya moves
>>1257501"So hey, Ramirez, you know anything fun to do on this ship?" You ask. "Define what you mean by 'fun.'" Ramirez narrows his eyes. "Something that's doesn't involve just standing around and waiting!" Hess pouts. "Hmmmm." Ramirez lays a discerning look on the both of you. "All right, you two seem cool, so I'll let you in on this.""Let us in on what?" You blink curiously."Well... the guys here generally partake in some... 'unsanctioned activities' to pass the time." Ramirez says in a rather suspicious tone.>Drinking>Gambling>Pit Fighting>Ummm, I think I'll pass.>Other
>>1257661>>DrinkingCan someone finally beat the Merc MC drinking test?
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>1257661>DrinkingGOD WILLS IT
>>1257661Turns out, there was a hidden bar on this ship all this time, despite the regulations stating that alcohol was not permitted on warships. A regulation that practically nobody followed or enforced, according to Ramirez. Even Tarin turned blind eye, since she was acutely aware of the positive effect drinking could have on morale. Well, drinking in moderation at least. Ramirez leads you down to the lower decks of the ship, where officers feared to tread. Here, the grunts ran the show. Thankfully, they still showed respect to Pilots, or Ramirez at least, since he managed to get through all their not so subtly placed checkpoints without harassment. You and Hess, as newcomers, draw some suspicious stares, but they otherwise don't do anything. And finally, the three of you reach the bar, where you can see some of the IMC mutineers you had taken on were already mingling with the grunts. The stench of alcohol was thick in the air."Hey, Ramirez!" The bartender grins and sees you and Hess in tow. "Oh, on a date? Things not working out with the Captain?""Nah, I'm just showing them around." Ramirez laughs and turns to you two. "Go ahead and order whatever you want. Drinks are on me!""As if that means anything. You never pay." The bartender rolls his eyes. "Point stands.""Get me the strongest thing you have!" Hess says confidently. >You need to match Hess!>Just get something more normal...>Other
>>1257796>Just get something more normal...
>>1257796>>Just get something more normal...
>>1257796>>You need to match Hess!
>>1257796>You need to match Hess!
Rolled 6, 4, 5 = 15 (3d20)>>1257796"All right, a Titan Fist for little one eye here!" The bartender nods and turns to you. "And you, miss?""Ummm, just a regular beer, I guess." You shrug."Coming up!"Then two glass mugs of liquid are slid in front of you and Hess. Hess' mug was filled with... some type of liquid whose color seemed to defy description. Hell, you could swear the drink was actually eating away at the glass like some kind of acid...Meanwhile your own drink was the regular amber of a common beer. "To getting off that rock!" Hess grins as she clinks her glass against yours.Well, bottoms up...>Roll 1d20+5
Rolled 16 + 5 (1d20 + 5)>>1257897Time for something!
Rolled 19 + 5 (1d20 + 5)>>1257897

Rolled 4 + 5 (1d20 + 5)>>1257897Here comes the nat 1...
>>1257917Looks like Holly almost beat Jager's score.
>>1257897The beer wasn't that bad, actually. A little bitter, but nothing you couldn't handle as you down the whole mug in a single go. "That's a pretty good first start." Ramirez grins. "Though it looks like our IMC friend here bit off a bit more than she could chew..."You turn to see that Hess was indeed wobbling and wavering dangerously, her head red like a balloon, a dumb smile on her face. "Anosher onnnne!" She hiccups.>Let Hess tie her own noose.>You better rein her in.>Other
>>1258030>Let Hess tie her own noose.
>>1258030>You better rein her in.
>>1258030>>You better rein her in.
Rolled 8, 10, 6 = 24 (3d20)>>1258030"Whoaaaaa, hold on there, Hess." You grab her wrist. "I think you've had a bit too much-"And then Hess shoots you a look. A look that you knew all too well from boot...>Roll 1d20
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>1258109
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>1258109
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>1258109
>>1258129Well Holly seems to be pretty good at this sort of stuff.Is Hess trying to kiss us?
>>1258109Hess then swings a punch at you, but with her reflexes rendered sluggish from the alcohol, you see it coming from miles away, and counter it by grabbing her other wrist to try and immobilize her. "FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!" You hear the bar patrons chanting. Yeah, they weren't going to be any help at all."Ramirez!" You grunt as you struggle with the inebriated Hess."I got five bucks on you, Kid, don't disappoint!" Ramirez grins as he raises a mug in a toast. Goddamnit!Meanwhile, Hess continued to struggle against your hold. Even with her reflexes dulled, her strength wasn't hampered at all...>Try to keep Hess immobilized.>Try to talk her down.>Guess you gotta knock her out.>Other
>>1258158>Try to keep Hess immobilized.
>>1258158>>Try to keep Hess immobilized.Let's try to pin her in a non-lewd way.
>>1258158>Take this fight to the ultimate field of honor - the Titan hangar
Rolled 20, 4, 14 = 38 (3d20)>>1258158"D-damnit, Hess!" You grunt as you struggle with her. "Calm the fuck down!">Roll 1d20
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>1258206
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>1258206>that 20
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>1258206[laughter stops]
>>1258206However, with a deep roar, Hess manages to break your grip and shoves you off, pushing your back onto the bar. And then she pushes, sliding you across the entire top, sending glasses both empty and full flying everywhere until you finally fall off onto the ground, leaving you dazed. "YOU THINK YOU CAN DEFEAT ME? THE SILVER KNIGHT?!?!" Hess roars, standing atop the bar like a conquering hero."C'mon, Kid!" Ramirez tries to goad you on. "You can take her!">Tackle her off the bar.>Sweep the leg!>Throw a mug at her.>Other
>>1258221>Tackle her off the bar.
>>1258221>Sweep the leg!
>>1258221>>Sweep the leg!
Rolled 20, 3, 15 = 38 (3d20)>>1258221You frown as you swing your arm out, trying to sweep Hess' legs out from under her to knock her down a peg or two.>Roll 1d20+2
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>1258276New plan. Can we just point Hess at all our enemies while she's drunk?
Rolled 1 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1258276Goddamn.
Rolled 17 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1258276>>1258286This is gonna suck.
>>1258276>>1258286Hess is a goddamn drunken master!
>>1258276Unfortunately, Hess was much more amped up now that her blood was running, and she leaps up to avoid your sweep. The moment her feet touch down on the bar, she sends her foot out again, kicking you solidly in the chest and sending you falling onto your back, the gathered grunts backing off to avoid you.Suddenly, Hess is on top of you, straddling your belly ass she pulls you up by the collar with her hands. Her one eye glares into yours, the powerful stench of alcohol rolling off her breath. "So what now, Militia?" She asks.>Admit defeat.>Keep fighting.>Do something REALLY crazy...>Other
>>1258306>Do something REALLY crazy...Time for the unorthodox...
>>1258306>Do something REALLY crazy...
>>1258306>Do something REALLY crazy...THUNDERDO- I mean, TITAN HANGAR
>>1258306>>Do something REALLY crazy...
>>1258306>Other>Look behind you!She has to be drunk enough for this to work
>>1258306>Do something REALLY crazy...Let's go for broke.
>>1258306Well, you were out of options. It was time to do something REALLY crazy.Thinking fast, you grab Hess by the collar as well and bring her head close and lock lips with hers.And the whole crowd gasps, a pall of silence falling across the entire room."FUCK YEAH!" One of the cheers.And the whole room bursts into applause and laughter. You then look back at Hess, who's personality seems to have done a complete 180. She was now off you, huddled in a corner with the most embarrassed look on her face."T-to think my first time would be taken so forcefully...~" Hess stammers.Um...."Well damn, Kid, that was pretty uh... novel." Ramirez tries to hold in his laughter. "Try not to do that in the field, okay?"You just nod absentmindedly, too drained to really talk back at him."Well, I suppose we better get her out of here before someone here starts getting 'improper' ideas." Ramirez sighs.>Let Ramirez handle it.>You should handle it.>Other
>>1258398>>You should handle it.MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
>>1258398>You should handle it.Does this mean we need to kiss BLL now?
>>1258398>You should handle it.Got to be a proper lady.
>>1258398>You should handle it.
>>1258398>You should handle it.>>1258420Where would we kiss?>>1258421
>>1258398"I guess I'll handle it." You sigh. "This is partially my fault, anyways.""You go do that." Ramirez chuckles. "Have a safe trip back!"Fortunately, you don't really have any difficulties carrying Hess back to her temporary quarters. Apparently all of the excitement had simply tired her out. She was already snoring softly by the time you set her down on her bed.With nothing else to do, you head back to the hangar to check up on BLL. However, you see his optic glaring at you when you enter. "Uhhhh, is there something wrong?" You blink."RAMIREZ TOLD ME WHAT HAPPENED." BLL rumbles. "I THOUGHT WE HAD SOMETHING SPECIAL, HOLLY."Oh goddamnit...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week! This little mini-run is coming to its conclusion soon, so stay tuned! And don't forget KanColle on Friday!
