You weren't exactly sure what uncultured Zentradi did to their cultured brethren, but most of the stories you heard weren't nice. Anyways, Julie was quickly carted off to the infirmary while you, Amy, Lara, and Anna were rushed to a quick debriefing. "I have to admit, we never considered the applications for more... aggressive types of music on Zentradi." Karla nods sagely as she looks through the mission report. "Really?" Dorothea cracks a very rare wry grin. "Is there something the vaunted Intelligence has overlooked?""More like we weren't sure what sort of effects it would have." Karla shrugs. "What if it resulted in them powering up? They're a warrior race, after all. But with this data..."Karla taps her finger on the table in tempo with a muted recording of Amy's song that she used to repel that Zentradi Ace. "Perhaps we were looking at it the wrong way. Instead of emboldening uncultured Zentradi, this type of music might intimidate them."You see Dorothea's eyebrow raise ever so slightly."Are you proposing we 'field test' in a future battle?" She asks suspiciously."Well, of course." Karla nods with a smile. Dorothea frowns, obviously not entirely sold on the idea."Hey, that shit worked. I saw it myself!" Lara speaks up. "Stopped that Ace dead in her tracks when an entire fleet couldn't do that!""M-my sensor readings also showed a much higher than average fold resonance in Amy, too!" Anna points out. "I think because she likes that sort of music more...?""Hey, were you spying on me?!" Amy glowers."I was just doing my job!" Anna squeaks.Now all eyes were on you for your opinion. >It's worth giving it a shot. >Sounds a little too risky.>Other
>>2260934>>It's worth giving it a shot.
>>2260934>It's worth giving it a shot.
>>2260934TIME FOR SOME DECULTURE!>It's worth giving it a shot. Because heck why not and we need them to LISTEN TO OUR SONG!
>>2260934>>It's worth giving it a shot.We're gonna fill their ears with METAL
>>2260934>It's worth giving it a shot.The upped resonance thing makes sense. If Amy's into it, there's gonna be more to power it up.
>>2260934>It's worth giving it a shot.Who says an idol can't ROCK OUT LOUD, huh?We should totally have her watch some Fire Bomber; might give her some inspiration.
>>2260934"It's worth giving it a shot." You shrug. "I mean, what do we have to lose at this point?""Exactly!" Karla chuckles. Amy just rolls her eyes. "I'll keep that in consideration." Dorothea nods. "That will conclude the debriefing for now. You are all dismissed.">Talk with Karla and Amy about further applications of song theory.>See how Julie is doing in the infirmary.>Head down to the hangar with Lara to see if you can get your replacement fighter yet.>Escort Dorothea and Anna back to the bridge.>Other
>>2261049>See how Julie is doing in the infirmary.
>>2261049>>Talk with Karla and Amy about further applications of song theory.
>>2261049>>See how Julie is doing in the infirmary.
>>2261049>See how Julie is doing in the infirmary.>>2261049
>>2261049"Hey, Lara, how about you head off to hangar first? I'll catch up to you. You tell your wingmate. You actually kind of wanted to check in on Julie. She was in pretty bad shape last time you checked."Huh? Sure. Where are ya going?" Lara wonders.Hmm, was it really a good idea to tell her? Last you remember, Lara and Julie apparently didn't get along too well. >Tell her.>Don't tell her.>Other
>>2261103>>Tell her.Just need to confirm everything is O.K.
>>2261103>Tell her.Just checking up on a fellow pilot and nothing else. Be cool, woman
>>2261103>>Tell her.Whenever we get that date, should we both have disguises to stop a few certain sleuths spying on us?
>>2261103>>Tell her.Also, a little off topic butIs there an agreed upon appearance for Harry? Or at least any kind of physical traits to describe him? I finally caught up with the quest after reading through the archives and I've been enjoying it so far, makes me want to draw you guys stuff if you wouldn't mind.
>>2261103"I was going to go check up on Julie in the infirmary to see how she's doing." You say simply. "...oh." Lara says after a brief, awkward pause, her typical cheer now noticeably drained. "Is that so?""She was in bad shape when we last saw her, so I just want to make sure she's okay." You continue."Yeah, yeah, I get it." Lara nods and sighs. "Just... just be careful around her, okay?">Um, sure thing. >Seriously, what's the problem with her?>Other
>>2261169>Seriously, what's the problem with her?
>>2261169>>Seriously, what's the problem with her?
>>2261169>Um, sure thing.
>>2261169>Um, sure thing. >Geez the way you speak makes her sound like some kind of man-eater.
>>2261138We'd need some pretty good ones. Like Dorothea letting her hair down and wearing JEANS!>>2261169>>Um, sure thing.
>>2261188I want Lara in a idol dress. Or Karla in her birthday suit.
>>2261193Karla would probably try to seduce us in an attempt to get info.
>>2261197and that will be wrong why?
>>2261169"Seriously, what's the problem with her?" You frown. "You always get like this whenever she's in the same room or if her name is even mentioned?""It's... well... it's complicated." Lara crosses her arms defensively and looks away. "Can we talk about it later? It's something I need a drink for."Jeez, was it really that bad...?>I'd like to know now. >All right, over drinks it is.>Other
>>2261214>All right, over drinks it is.
>>2261161>Is there an agreed upon appearance for Harry? Or at least any kind of physical traits to describe him? I finally caught up with the quest after reading through the archives and I've been enjoying it so far, makes me want to draw you guys stuff if you wouldn't mind.Well, none exactly so far, so you'll just have to use your imagination!
>>2261214>>All right, over drinks it is.And no playing airplane!
>>2261214>>All right, over drinks it is.
>>2261214>All right, over drinks it is.>>2261188There's always the pilot suit as an option.
>>2261214>>All right, over drinks it is.Lewd our wing mate or the Snoop.
>>2261214>All right, over drinks it is.>Other: *whisper* hopefully i wont need to bribe security again to get my hands in another security footage
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>2261214"All right, over drinks it is." You grin. "And that's a promise." "Right." Lara nods, a bit of her smile returning. "I'll see ya then!" Lara trots out of the briefing room which you just notice is now completely empty, everybody else heading off to take care of their own duties. You head off to the Pacifica's infirmary section. They had to micronize Julie to make first aid easier, but other than that, you didn't know anything else about her condition. You then reach the infirmary door and open it->Roll 1d20
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>2261283
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>2261283Time for tits?
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>2261283
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>2261283>>2261221>you'll just have to use your imagination!Ahh.. Well, alright. Thanks!
>>2261283You walk in and expertly dodge a throw pillow as it sails past your head and slams into the wall next to the door. "I told you already, I'm PERFECTLY FINE!" Julie roars as a pair of orderlies try to keep her in her bed."Julie, I know that Zentradi biology tends to be a bit more... resilient than humans." The doctor on duty sighs as if this was not the first time he's had to deal with this. "But you suffered some serious internal injuries which need to be monitored.""I hate just sitting around doing nothing." Julie pouts and crosses her arms like a spoiled child. "I need to get my suit fixed so I can get payback on that red bitch!""Oh, Captain Neumann, I didn't expect to see you here." The doctor nods at your presence. "Hopefully you can talk some sense into her?""Oh, hey there~!" Julie coos. Huh, well, what were you going to say?>You should really listen to the doctors. >Do you know anything about that "red bitch?">What's up between you and Lara?>Other
>>2261337>You should really listen to the doctors.
>>2261337>Flirt with her?If she doesn't behave she'll get a spanking?
>>2261337>>Do you know anything about that "red bitch?"
>>2261337>>You should really listen to the doctors.
>>2261337>You should really listen to the doctors.>Other"While I'm not any more of a fan of her than you are, going out there when you aren't at 100% and not thinking straight is basically asking her to shoot you down again."
>>2261337>You should really listen to the doctors.It's usually at this point in the story when the Macross MC figures out a new technique or gets an upgrade.
>>2261337>>You should really listen to the doctors. >>Do you know anything about that "red bitch?"
>>2261337>You should really listen to the doctors. Or Else they'll get the Chief Medical Officer to bench you.
>>2261337>Flirt with her?
>>2261337>Flirt with her to get her to stay still and listen to the doctors
>>2261308>>2261221>>2261161I was throwing this image out there in the early threads, though one anon was adamant that a SpecOps like Harry wouldn't have his hair like that.[SPOILER]Mostly it was part of a running joke that he's secretly a clone of Roy/a clandestine super pilot project.[/SPOILER]
Flirt with her
>>2261337Oops forgot to link it>>2261384
>>2261337"You really should listen to the doctors." You instruct her. "They've got your best interest in mind.""Mmmmmm, fine." Julie huffs and then smiles. "Only as long as you hang out here for a bit with me.""I got time to spare." You shrug. and take a seat next to the bed. The orderlies back off."I'll come back in a few minutes after we process the scans." The doctor says as he makes his exit. "Hmmm, so, I heard you got your ass wrecked by that Red Bitch too, didn't you?" She asks with a wry grin.>She just got the jump on me, that's all.>She was beyond anything I've faced before.>No comment.>Other
>>2261392>She was beyond anything I've faced before.
>>2261392>She just got the jump on me, that's all.
>>2261392>Mutual Destruction, Made sure she remembered me.
>>2261392>>She was beyond anything I've faced before.
>>2261392>>She was beyond anything I've faced before.>>2261354>new techniqueCan't think of anything that hasn't been tried before IRL or in-show unless we just decide to do high-G manoeuvres and sudden changes in direction.
>>2261392>>She just got the jump on me, that's all.>>2261372Yeah, I remember seeing that pic thrown out there a few times while reading through the archives. I didn't really see any anons agree with it though so I wasn't sure if everyone went with it. Then again, nobody (except for that one guy from what I remember) disagreed either, so eh.Also, I was wondering about that. I don't get the the connection between the pic and the Roy clone/super pilot project thing. Who is that guy?
>>2261410I also remember an alternative where we were either descended from pure non-cloned humans, or have DNA from every Flying Ace.
>>2261392>>She just got the jump on me, that's all.
>>2261414Project New Man, heh...
>>2261392>>Other“She’s pretty good...”
>>2261392>She just got the jump on me, that's all.Gotta have some of that pilot pride.>>2261410From some mecha show called something Resonance. I just found an image of him in a cockpit and pilot suit that looked vaguely like Macross then the jokes about him be a clone started so I just rolled with it.
>>2261392"She just got the jump on me, that's all." You frown. "I just got caught out at a bad time.""Don't we all?" Julie chuckles and gives you a little smile. "I get the feeling you don't fight Meltrandi much, do you?">Yeah, they're comparatively rare.>I've had my fair share of scuffles with the fairer Zentradi sex.>Other
>>2261444>I've had my fair share of scuffles with the fairer Zentradi sex.
>>2261444>Yeah, they're comparatively rare.
>>2261444>>Yeah, they're comparatively rare.
>>2261444>>Yeah, they're comparatively rare.Any tips?
>>2261444>>I've had my fair share of scuffles with the fairer Zentradi sex>>Care to test me?
>>2261444>I've had my fair share of scuffles with the fairer Zentradi sex.>>2261469Support this
>>2261444>Yeah, they're comparatively rare.>>2261464"Care for a practical demonstration?"
>>2261444>>2261482I would support the saying.
>>2261444>I've had my fair share of scuffles with the fairer Zentradi sex.Totally not implying anything about night battles.
>>2261444>>I've had my fair share of scuffles with the fairer Zentradi sex.
>>2261444"I've had my fair share of scuffles with the fairer Zentradi sex." You shrug. "So it's nothing new to me.""Oh?" Julie grins as she leans over from the bed, closing the distance between you two just a bit more. "So you've had experience dealing with us, huh? How about a Meltrandi like me...?"Jeez, Julie was certainly aggressive in more ways than one. >Answer flirtatiously.>Answer seriously.>Other
>>2261494>Answer flirtatiously.Pissing against the wind
>>2261494>>Answer flirtatiously.Might as well give Karla some fuel to burn.
>>2261494>Answer flirtatiously.First red heads, now exotic beings!
>>2261504Don't forget our wingmans.
>>2261504All the space elves and also those tentacle haired girls. And the cat girls too
>>2261494"I don't know." You grin. "I think I'd have to have a few one on one dogfights to figure that out.""Mhm. Is that so?" Julie smiles sweetly. And the movement was quick. Perhaps if she were in better condition, you would never have noticed Julie's arm shoot out to grab you and reel you in. >This is fine. >You're not that easy to catch.>Other
>>2261494>Answer seriouslyC'mon guys keep it in your pants at least until we get the 411 from our wingman.
>>2261519>Dodge and reel her in, you told her its a dogfight treat it like one.
>>2261519>>You're not that easy to catch.
>>2261519>You're not that easy to catch.
>>2261519>Dodge and counter. We did say we need a one on one to figure it out sontry that
>>2261519>You're not that easy to catch.She'll need to train for a long time before she can land this big fish
>>2261508>>2261516As long as they also have red hair>>2261519>You're not that easy to catch.
>>2261531Then counter her movement to show she is not the predator
>>2261519All right, so there seems to be a bit of a divide here on how exactly to play hard to catch, so lets narrow things down!>Dodge>Counter
>>2261541>>CounterWith headpats, it's okay she's not Windermeran!
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>2261541Well, you weren't going to let yourself get caught that easily. You reach your own arm out to counter hers...>Roll 1d20
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>2261558
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>2261558FAIL!
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>2261558
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>2261558
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>2261558...
>>2261568She took it very well.
>>2261558You grab Julie's wrist before she can grab your collar and you give her a smug grin. "Gotta be faster than that." You tut. "I'm not the type of pilot that just let's anybody catch me for free.""Nnnnn, I do enjoy hard to get prey." Julie chuckles. "Makes nabbing them all the more rewarding!"That's when you get the feeling that you're being watched and you turn around to see Lara peeking in from the door, a very suspicious look on her face."I guess I shouldn't be surprised." Lara sighs, more disappointed than angry."Oh, don't be like that, Lara!" Julie waves. "Come on! Join us!" "I'm getting a drink." Lara sighs and slips out. "You'll know where to find me, Cap.""Jeez, guess she's still bitter, huh?" Julie frowns. "Would've figured she'd have gotten over it by now...">Better go talk to Lara.>Get Julie's side of the story first.>Other
>>2261578>Get Julie's side of the story first.
>>2261578>Get Julie's side of the story first.You keep posting Sayaka Maizono for Lara like this Merc, I'm gonna start suspecting her when the intrigue kicks off
>>2261578>>Get Julie's side of the story first.
Why do I feel like all this flirting is going to backfire on us
>>2261601You don't say
>>2261578"So, I keep getting the impression that something happened between you two." You raise an eyebrow at Julie. "What exactly happened.""I keep telling her, it wasn't a big deal!" Julie groans. "A couple years back, there was this other pilot guy that Lara really liked, and well, I like teasing him a lot.""Teasing, huh?" You raise an eyebrow. "Hey, neither of them said anything, so I figured they were both cool with it!" Julie rolls her eyes. "And then one day, bam! He just transfers out without another word, and Lara blames ME for it!" "Sounds like... quite the story." You frown. "Yeah, well, if Lara wants to keep holding grudges, she's free to do that. Not like I care." Julie huffs.>Sad to hear you say that.>You're a good pilot but a bad liar.>Other
>>2261613>You're a good pilot but a bad liar.
>>2261613>>You're a good pilot but a bad liar.
>>2261613>>You're a good pilot but a bad liar.Julie actually does care, and besides she didn't get lucky with the other guy either.
>>2261613"You're a good pilot, but a bad liar." You grin."Hmph! Yeah, well, you can go do what you want!" Julie huffs as she crosses her arms and leans back on her bed, eyes closed to avoid eye contact. Jeez, for a woman who could grow to the size of a building, she could be incredibly childish. "You promise to stay here and listen to the doctor?" You ask her, just to make sure."Yeah yeaaaaaaah." Julie nods, eyes still closed."Good." You nod and smile. "See you later."Julie gives you a brief wave as you get out. As you make your way to the bar, you wonder if you should talk to someone else about the situation first. Perhaps a third party would have a better perspective on this?>You should go talk to Lara right away.>Dorothea and Lara are fairly close. Maybe she know something.>Kellerman definitely knew what was up.>Other
>>2261629>>Kellerman definitely knew what was up.
>>2261629>>You should go talk to Lara right away.
>>2261629>Dorothea and Lara are fairly close. Maybe she know something.
>>2261629>You should go talk to Lara right away.Probably should get there before she has too much to drink
>>2261629>>Dorothea and Lara are fairly close. Maybe she know something.
>>2261629>Go see Lara
>>2261629>You should go talk to Lara right away.
>>2261629You head straight to the bar, where you see Lara already in the process of getting herself drunk, a number of empty shot glasses already collecting in front of her. "Oh, hey Cap." Lara sighs. "So I guess you wanna hear what happened?">Go on ahead.>Julie already gave me a bit of an idea.>Other
>>2261660>Go on ahead.
>>2261660>Go on ahead.In vino veritas.
>>2261660>>Go on ahead.
>>2261660"Go on ahead." You say as you take a seat next to Lara. "I'm listening.""Yeah, well, it all starts with a guy." Lara sighs. "A pilot. One of the coolest and most laid back I've ever known, and one of the few that could keep up with me in the sims."Ah yes, that pilot Julie mentioned that Lara was interested in. "His name was Wolf." Lara pauses an chuckles when she sees your confused expression. "Yeah yeah, really fucking stupid, but that was the name his parents stuck him with and he never bothered changing it.""And I take it something happened." You say."JULIE happened." Lara almost spits that name. "Hard to believe, but we used be friends, back in the day.""A shocker." You nod."She was always pretty loose when it came to guys." Lara grunts. "Always bringing back a new one to our room every time, but I never judged her for it. Not until, well..."Lara pauses and takes another shot, adding another to the pile of empty glasses.>Let her continue, she obviously needs to steel her nerves.>She should probably moderate herself a bit more. >Other
>>2261700>>Let her continue, she obviously needs to steel her nerves.
>>2261700>Let her continue, she obviously needs to steel her nerves.Harry "DrunkGirlsTellMeTheirLifeStories" Neuman
>>2261700>Let her continue, she obviously needs to steel her nerves.We're surrounded by alcoholic women
>>2261700>Let her continue, she obviously needs to steel her nerves.
>>2261700>>Let her continue, she obviously needs to steel her nerves.>>2261711Let's just pray that we're not passed around like a used pillow
>>2261707>>2261711Harry's the Lush Whisperer.
>>2261700You decide not to disturb Lara as she does more drinks to loosen her tongue. "And then she starts fucking flirting with Wolf right in front of me. Guess sleeping with fifty guys wasn't enough, she wanted to get her hands on the one I was into for once."Lara slams a glass down on the table with a loud THUNK. You were almost afraid she'd shatter it in her hand. "But no, Julie kept making the moves on him. Wolf couldn't take being caught in between the both of us and transferred out. No words, no goodbyes, not even a fuckin' letter." Lara spits bitterly. "And then Julie just shrugs it all off like nothing ever happened! Easy for her, I guess. She doesn't care who she sleeps with that... that..."Lara throws a glass down on the floor in frustration as she screams."THAT FUCKING SLUT!" >She needs to calm down, pronto. >Just let her vent it all out.>Other
>>2261725>>Just let her vent it all out.
>>2261725>Just let her vent it all out.
>>2261725>>She needs to calm down, pronto.
>>2261725>She needs to calm down, pronto.>Did you tell Julie that you didn't like her flirting with Wolf before he left?Yeah, it's a question Harry already has the answer to, but Lara needs to realize she should have told Julie to knock it off before things got this bad.
>>2261725"I HATE HER FOR SCARING HIM OFF, AND I HATE MYSELF FOR STANDING HER BACK AND LETTING HER DO IT!" She continues to yell. Thankfully, there was nobody else in the bar to hear this. The robot manning the bar simply dutifully sweeps up the broken glass as Lara continues to vent."I just.. don't want the same thing to happen to you, Cap." Lara puts her hands on both your shoulders, her flushed red face close to yours. "I don't want you running away because of Julie.">Don't worry, I can handle her.>Don't worry, I'm not interested in her. >I think you're overreacting.>Other
>>2261757>>Don't worry, I'm not interested in her.
>>2261757>Don't worry, I can handle her.>And I'm not even interested in her anyway.
>>2261757>>Don't worry, I can handle her.
>>2261757>Don't worry, I'm not interested in her.
>>2261757>Don't worry, I can handle her.
>>2261757"Don't worry, I'm not even interested in her anyways." You reassure her. "It's fine, I promise.""Huh.. well..." Lara mumbles, suddenly looking very tired. "That's nice to hear, I guess. I'd hate for Julie to come between you and Dorothea."Wait, what's making her say that...?>Wait... what?>We're not together.>Thanks for looking out for us.>Other
>>2261791>>Thanks for looking out for us.
>>2261791>Thanks for looking out for us.
>>2261791>Thanks for looking out for us.>Wait... what?
>>2261791"Thanks for looking out for us." You grin and pat Lara on the head. "It's what I do..." Lara slurs.You wonder if it was worth suggesting to Lara she tried to mend bridges with Julie. Maybe it was beyond repair...>Suggest she just go talk to Julie.>Suggest she go get some sleep.>Other
>>2261810>>Suggest she go get some sleep.
>>2261810>Suggest she go get some sleep.
>>2261810>Suggest she just go talk to Julie.
>>2261810>>Suggest she just go talk to Julie.
>>2261810>Other>Offer to mediate between Lara and Julie if Lara ever decides to talk to Julie.
>>2261810>>2261815But only if she wants to, or we have to before it becomes a Isamu vs Guld situation.
>>2261810"You know, Lara, this is just a suggestion." You speak up. "But maybe you should just go talk to Julie.""Uuuuuuuuggghhh." Lara whines. "Do I have to?""I just think you should." You shrug."Fuck, I'll think about it." Lara grunts. "But no promises.""That's all I ask." You nod."Waitaminute." Lara narrows her eyes. "We've been sitting here all this time, and you haven't drunk a single drop!""No, I'm good-""DON'T BE SILLY!" Lara grins as she pushes a full glass in front of you. Where did she even get that? "BOTTOMS UP!"Looks like this evening was going to go on longer than you thought...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week, and don't forget Frontier Knight on Saturday!
fuck....i fell asleep. I kind of wanted to flirt with Lara and we ended up confirming her with the admiral...
>>2261817Thanks for running, even though I only caught the tail end, it was nice.
>>2261817and of coarse i wake up just to see the end.
>>2261817Thanks for running, Merc!I wonder if Wolf quit NUNS entirely and became a P-san for an AI idol?SEE YOU NEXT DECULTURE!
>>2261838Don't you mean an AIdol?
>>2261817Thanks for the run OP!
>>2260934thanks for running. and thank you other anons for playing.
