Right after Halloween had concluded, it was straight back to work as you had to make preparations for your upcoming big arena concert. It was just consecutive days of practice as Ushiyama repeatedly made the girls memorize and repeat set over and over and over. Even with Captain-level training and endurance, the girls were being pushed to their limits. However, that was good, since it would push them to be better.On top of that, they were also receiving maid training from Maria. While you had no intention of making them into full time maid idols, you did figure they could use a few lessons in manners, at the very least. Plus, the Old Man went through a lot of effort to get those maid uniforms, and you'd be damned to let such fine outfits go to waste.(cont)
>>36192054"Good morning, Producer." Jenner greets you as always."What's the agenda for today?" You ask, pecking her on the cheek.Jenner shoots you the "no intimacy during work hours" look before shaking her head and pulling up a list."Well, we're due for a meeting with Ushiyama to get an update on the girls' progress with the routine. The girls are training with Maria right now, if you want to see them. Also, DeRosa called. It seems that there's something important he wants to talk with you about. Oh right, and you never did get around to assigning that new equipment we got when we raided his place.>Talk to Ushiyama>Check on the girls.>Talk to Derosa>Check on your new gear.>Other
>>36192065>Check on your new gear.
>>36192065>Check on your new gear.Time to give the Jetpack to our Sniper
>>36192065>Talk to Ushiyama
So who should get the flamethrower? I'm not too familiar with how to integrate it into our group since flamethrowers are a rather niche weapon.
>>36192065>>Talk to Ushiyama
>>36192065>>Check on the girlsI want to see how their doing.Cole being polite, that should be funnyAlso Merc did we gain any influence during halloween?
>>36192164I have half a mind to give it to Julie since she is the vanguard. However, burning someone is kind of different then shooting someone. Especially the screams and smell of burnt flesh kind of had an effect on flamethrower crews in WW2 if I recall. I rather consult Lilith if they can mentally handle that.
>>36192303I mean we could restrict it to just destroying material instead of people. Things like equipment, weapons, etc. if it they have a problem burning people.
>>36192333Flamethrowers don't work that way and Sparky can already do that.Actually giving it to Sparky is not a bad idea but she already has several weapons on hand
>>36192221Yes, that will be factored in later.>>36192065"I'll go check in on that new equipment first." You say. "All right, I'll be waiting for you up here, then." Jenner nods.You make your way down to the workshop, where Falynn, as always, is busy maintaining the Viper and making sure all of the repairs to it stuck. You could also see NEMO's holographic body flitting about the outside of the Viper, seemingly taking every little detail of the vehicle in."Hey, Falynn, you got a minute?" You ask."Oh! Just a sec!" Falynn clambers out of the top hatch and drops down to the ground, her tools clinking and clattering as she does so. "What do ya need?""You gave a look over on those two pieces of gear we obtained, right?" You ask."Ah yeah, the flamethrower and jetpack!" Falynn nods. "Real neat stuff. Just a sec!"Falynn shuffles off to the armory, and comes back bearing the two items in question. The flame projector looked fairly innocuous. Really, it seemed like a tiny spray gun, though in fact it spat ignited napalm. The other item was a power armor with an installed jetpack. Useful for getting around quickly."Now, this baby here is a Weyland Yutani Flame Projector!" Falynn grins. "It can be used as a weapon attachment, or as a separate weapon! Shoots out highly flammable napalm in a wide area, so anything you need toasted is toasted!">Ask Falynn something about the flame projector. (Specify)>Assign the flame projector to anybody?>Other
>>36192379Sparky is walking artillery, better to give it to someone more likely to see action close up.
>>36192490>>Ask Falynn something about the flame projector. (Specify)How long can it fire a continuous stream without refilling the fuel?
>>36192490>>Ask Falynn something about the flame projector. (Specify)How bad is it if the weapon's hit? And how many uses?>>Assign the flame projector to anybody?JulieFrontmost and all that.
>>36192490>>Ask Falynn something about the flame projector. (Specify)What's the effective firing range?
>>36192490>Assign the flame projector to anybody?Julie, it'll go well with that shield.
>>36192490>Ask Falynn something about the flame projector. (Specify)Can it spray something else than napalm?
>>36192490>Assign the flame projector to anybody?Either Jules or Melissa. Probably Jules. It swems like it can be used one handed and with the shield, Julie can make the most out of it.>Ask Falynn something about the flame projector. (Specify)How long can it be used it a full burst. Doesn't look like it can hold a lot of ammo.
>>36192490>Assign the flame projector to Julie.
>>36192303Well I guess the votes for Julie sort of makes sense since she is a Tombs girl. They've already seen the worst in what people can do and may be a bit more mentally prepared for what needs to be done.
>>36192601Shes also the frontmost most of the time thanks to her shield.And with her shield, she can shield herself from attacks and backblasts as she closes.
>>36192490>Weyland Yutani Flame ProjectorI see someone has been playing Alien: Isolation
>>36192713And if the jetpack armor can do stuff that isn't from Halo....then we'll know he knows about Assault Exos
>>36192490>Ask Falynn something about the flame projector. How much is the fuel and maintenance of the flame projector?
>>36192753Archangel armor pack from X-com anon.
>>36192753So we train Morgan to do "High Mobility Manoeuvres" alongside standard flight in case she finds herself actively engaging enemies, or compromised?
>>36192795Is it bad that I want to give to Sparky and turn her into a Rocket Angel?
>>36192490>Ask Falynn something about the flame projector. (Specify)What's the fuel capacity?
>>36192852Well morgan stands to benefit the most from it.
>>36192869Meh, I'd rather have the Rocket Angel.
>>36192601Cole has Electricity so giving her another element will be weird.Melissa, it might ignite some sort of trauma.Julie is the only viable candidate but I think we should at least give her fair warning before using it.Something in Vietnam II when they have to use flamethrowers to flush out the enemy and to hear dying screams and burning flesh. She needs to prepare herself for that.
>>36192490"So, how much fuel can this thing hold? How far can it shoot?" You ask as you turn the device over in your hands."Well, it can carry enough fuel for about five seconds of continuous fire." Falynn says."That doesn't sound like a lot." You raise an eyebrow."Well, I've never been COVERED IN FLAMES before, but I'm pretty sure in that situation five seconds would seem like a REALLY long time." Falynn grunts. "Anyways, since this thing is so small, it can only really shoot about ten, twenty meters tops. Would make good for close combat and area denial, that's for sure. Very effective shock weapon, too.""Sounds like just the weapon for Julie." You grin. "Can you work your magic on this?""Oh yeah, definitely." Falynn cracks a grin. "What do you want?">Compressor Nozzle: Doubles the effective range of the Flame Projector.>Blue Flame Upgrade: Significantly increases the maximum temperature the Flame Projector can generate.>Air Mixer: Doubles the Flame Projector's ammo capacity.>Nonlethal Spray: Converts the Flame Projector so that it fires a thicker, sticky solution that can immobilize targets. Does not burn.
>>36193091>>Nonlethal Spray: Converts the Flame Projector so that it fires a thicker, sticky solution that can immobilize targets. Does not burn.Keep our options open.Call it the "Switzerland"
>>36193091>Compressor Nozzle: Doubles the effective range of the Flame Projector.
>>36193091>>Nonlethal Spray: Converts the Flame Projector so that it fires a thicker, sticky solution that can immobilize targets. Does not burn.
>>36193091>Nonlethal Spray: Converts the Flame Projector so that it fires a thicker, sticky solution that can immobilize targets. Does not burn.This will be handy for neutralizing combat idols
>>36193091>Nonlethal Spray: Converts the Flame Projector so that it fires a thicker, sticky solution that can immobilize targets. Does not burn.Sometimes we want to capture, not kill.
>>36193116Why not "Goo Gun"? Wait a minute, didn't we have this discussion in MGH Quest?
>>36193116no just call it the nonlethal spray
>>36193174Yes. Yes we did. I miss Alice.
>>36193174Yes... we did.
>>36193174I doubt the spray is thick enough to be called "goo"
>>36193174I think we did, probably why they referenced it
>>36193174We did indeed.
>>36193206>Loki will never try to trick us againYou're making me sad, Anon.
>>36193274Fuck Loki, I just miss Alice.
>>36193206But Alice is a magical girl idol in this world
>>36193297Loki did nothing wrong!
Okay, we'll throw Julie in a training simulation and we'll see how she handles the effects of the flamethrower on people. If she has a problem with it, then I guess we can just limit her to non-lethal spray.
>>36193274Why do you have to do this to me, Anon?;_;
>>36193305I miss that >>36193297 one.>>36193316Keep saying it! maybe someone will believe it! But it won't be me!
>>36193322anon it is getting turned into the non-lethal spray we do not have a flamethrower anymore
>>36193297Great fucking quest.
>>36193091"I'm actually not too keen on burning teenage girls alive, so I think I'll go with the nonlethal option. Think you can do that?" You ask."Sure thing!" Falynn nods. "I always did like a challenge!"Next up was the Archangel Jump Jet. This was a military grade combat armor. Well, it didn't really classify much as armor, at least when compared to similar power armors. After all, it had be light enough for the titular jump pack to operate efficiently. The Archangel used compressed air to allow the wearing to jump great distances, either horizontally or vertically, as well as slow falls. It even allowed the user to hover for several seconds. Very good for the operator that needed to stay constantly mobile.>Who will you assign the Archangel Jump Jet to?
>>36193420MorganAfter what happened to her with that VTOL...
>>36193091>Nonlethal Spray: Converts the Flame Projector so that it fires a thicker, sticky solution that can immobilize targets. Does not burn.A goop gun can be rather fun.
>>36193420>Who will you assign the Archangel Jump Jet to?Morgan, since her job revolves around rooftops
>>36193420>The Archangel used compressed air to allow the wearing to jump great distances, either horizontally or vertically, as well as slow falls.Or perhaps boost dash from side to side....
>>36193420Morgan. No question about it.
>>36193463That would require the nozzle pointing sideways, which it can't do.
>>36193420>Who will you assign the Archangel Jump Jet to?Morgan.
>>36193463>>36192753We're going into Advanced Warfare are we? Just waiting for Atlas mercs to show up.
>>36193477Good point. The only probable way of side dashes I can see happening is if Morgan tilts her body in one direction to manually point the nozzles.
>>36193463Seems a bit like the reaper suit from Starcraft. High mobility, minimal flying.
>>36193578It pretty much a light armor version of Archangel armor from X-COM enemy unknown. Same game Dr.Vahlen is from coincidentally.
>>36193495I reserve my excitement until Kevin Spacey comes along and tries seducing Vahlen.
>Apologies for the delay.>>36193420Well, it seemed to be a no brainer to assign the jump jet to Morgan. After all, the idea of an ultra mobile sniper was a very terrifying one. "What can you do with this?" You ask, hefting the heavy jump pack."Ohohoho...">Afterburners: When activated, afterburners can significantly increase the distance the Archangel can travel. However afterburners can only be used once before having to be refueled.>Hover Pack: The Archangel can be modified to continually operate, allowed it to hover indefinitely. >Grapple Hook: In conjunction with the Archangel, the grapple hook can allow the wearer to reach areas previously not thought possible, and could also be used to pull lighter objects toward themselves.
>>36194263>>Grapple Hook: In conjunction with the Archangel, the grapple hook can allow the wearer to reach areas previously not thought possible, and could also be used to pull lighter objects toward themselves.Duh, full X-COM
>>36194263>Grapple Hook: In conjunction with the Archangel, the grapple hook can allow the wearer to reach areas previously not thought possible, and could also be used to pull lighter objects toward themselves.Or rappel down something. Got to love utility.
>>36194263>Grapple Hook: In conjunction with the Archangel, the grapple hook can allow the wearer to reach areas previously not thought possible, and could also be used to pull lighter objects toward themselves.The others sound cool, but this sounds amazing!
>>36194263>>Grapple Hook: In conjunction with the Archangel, the grapple hook can allow the wearer to reach areas previously not thought possible, and could also be used to pull lighter objects toward themselves.Hook and bounce, folks! Learn to love mobility!
>>36194290>>36194300>>36194284>>36194312Does this mean she could possibly pull herself to a VTOL and hijack it?
>>36194263>Hover Pack: The Archangel can be modified to continually operate, allowed it to hover indefinitely. She won't even need solid ground to make a shot, just hover out of the effective range of their guns
>>36194263>Grapple Hook: In conjunction with the Archangel, the grapple hook can allow the wearer to reach areas previously not thought possible, and could also be used to pull lighter objects toward themselves.utility options are rather useful.
>>36194321yes yes it dose
>>36194263>>Hover Pack: The Archangel can be modified to continually operate, allowed it to hover indefinitely.
>>36194263>Hover Pack: The Archangel can be modified to continually operate, allowed it to hover indefinitely. Death from above with no end in sight.
>>36194263>>Grapple Hook: In conjunction with the Archangel, the grapple hook can allow the wearer to reach areas previously not thought possible, and could also be used to pull lighter objects toward themselves.We spider man now
>>36194321Go full Just Cause?Why not?
>>36194263>>Hover Pack: The Archangel can be modified to continually operate, allowed it to hover indefinitely.best option
>>36194263>Grapple Hook: In conjunction with the Archangel, the grapple hook can allow the wearer to reach areas previously not thought possible, and could also be used to pull lighter objects toward themselves.
>>36194263>>Grapple Hook: In conjunction with the Archangel, the grapple hook can allow the wearer to reach areas previously not thought possible, and could also be used to pull lighter objects toward themselves.
>>36194321>>36194365Hell, she could use our fully loaded combat VTOL and hang from the bottom of it while firing her rifle in one hand.
Why would we even pick the grapple hook? The jetpack is just a grapple hook that doesn't need something to anchor to.With the hover pack, she can just float in the air and snipe with impunity, like a cute russian VTOL
>>36194389or just use the hover pack>>36194263>Hover Pack: The Archangel can be modified to continually operate, allowed it to hover indefinitely.
>>36194409Because snipers shouldn't be highly visible and should be able to stay in place for hours.
>>36194409I guess anons like utility options more than specializing.
>>36194409Think of it this way: The jetpack can run out of fuel, but the grappling hook can be used even after the fuel tank's been emptied.
>>36194430Samefag isn't even trying to hide it.
>>36194263>>Hover Pack: The Archangel can be modified to continually operate, allowed it to hover indefinitely
>>36194409She'll be exposed, we want jet packs for her to be mobile
>>36194263"I kinda like grapple hooks." You say."I do, too!" Falynn nods. "I'll get that put in right away!""Thanks." You grin. "Anything else you need to tell me?""Ah no, nothing too special going on down here." Falynn shakes her head. "Stig and NEMO have been giving the Viper shakedown runs. It's a pretty hardy machine, that thing. I'd hate to be the guy you break that bad boy out for.""Good to hear." You nod.>Check in on the girls.>Talk to Ushiyama>Talk to Derosa>Other
>>36194438And with the hover pack, she can stay in place, in mid-air so her positioning isn't restricted by terrain, and can weave around buildings to lose pursuersPlus, with the hover pack, she has true 3D manueverability, unlike with the vanilla jumpack, which would only allow her to boost in one, predictable direction>>36194440But what the hook does, the jetpack does better, since it doesn't a point to anchor to
>>36194540>>Talk to DerosaThis should be good.Keep your friends close and enemies closer, as they say.
>>36194540>>Talk to Ushiyama
>>36194540>Talk to UshiyamaLet's get to business.
>>36194540>Talk to UshiyamaCan't we just ignore DeRosa? I don't like him.
>>36194540>Talk to DerosaI want to hear him whine.
>>36194540>Talk to Ushiyama
>>36194540>>Check in on the girls.Guys their in the middle of their maid training.I want to see how that's working out! If we wait we might miss out on it!
>>36194540>>Talk to Ushiyama>>36194552She can stay in place for like 60 seconds. Besides, in an urban environment you aren't going to have trouble finding a vantage point. And you can use the grappling hook and jump pack at the same time for some real Enders Game shit.
>>36194602the wording for the hover pack clearly says allowed to hover indefinitely
>>36194540>Talk to Ushiyama>>36194602But she is gonna have trouble getting an unobstructed LoS, since there are lots of buildings to use as cover, and the hover pack allows her to pursue a target without breaking LoS, or get to a more advantageous position she wouldn't otherwise have access to
Oh yeah, you know how P-san had to tuck in some idols after they watched The Thing?Don't some of them sleep without clothes?
>>36194540>Talk to UshiyamaHow's our setlist? We good on the plan for the concert?
>>36194707They were probably wearing PJs, that's how you do movie nights.
>>36194760But he had to do that for a few nights.
>>36194803Probably still wearing PJs?
>>36194707>"Oh, Cole. It's not like I'm one of those Chaos Spawn or Thing Monst-Blargblargblarg">Wakes up from the nightmare.
>>36194263Never noticed the heart shaped pupils in this pic before. >maximum over-erection
>>36194540You head over to the practice hall, where you see Ushiyama at his desk, watching recordings of the girls' practice sessions. He's scribbling down notes like mad, apparently either criticizing their performances, writing up new or modifying existing dance routines, or a little bit of both. However, he wasn't the only one in the room. Lillith was also present, and she wasn't in a very good mood. Unfortunately, you had the feeling you knew what she was here for."Ushi, you're pushing these girls too hard." Lillith says with a mix of concern and frustration in her voice. "These back to back training sessions are stretching the girls' morale to the breaking point. This kind of practice is completely, utterly unsustainable.""Nonsense." Ushiyama huffs. "These are hardy girls who have endured far worse things. They are more than capable of handling my training regimes.""Because we had an honest to god drill instructor here to help prepare them!" Lillith shakes her head. "If it weren't for her, I can guarantee at least one of the girls would have dropped dead by now!""But none of them have." Ushiyama sniffs. "And we have a big BIG performance coming up, which means more and longer sets for the girls to perform. We cannot afford to slack!""You keep going the way you are, we won't even HAVE performance!" Lillith yells.At this point you cough very loudly in order to grab their attention. Both staff members turn to you and pause when they realize you're present."Ummm, how much did you hear, Producer?" Lillith gasps."Enough." You grunt."Then you know what is at stake here, Producer." Ushiyama says.>Like Ushiyama said, we can't afford to slack. The practice continues as planned.>Lillith's right, the girls can't go on like this. Lighten up the workload.>How about we give the girls a day or two off. Is that fair to both of you?>Other
>>36194892I imagine Melissa or Morgan freaking on more to that.
>>36194930>How about we give the girls a day or two off. Is that fair to both of you?
>>36194930>>How about we give the girls a day or two off. Is that fair to both of you?Maybe not a day off, but at least one day of reduced workload.
>>36194930>How about we give the girls a day or two off. Is that fair to both of you?Yeah, maybe have a day where they work less.
>>36194956This.>>36194930Or at least stagger practices. Do different things on different days so at least part of them can rest.
>>36194930>>How about we give the girls a day or two off. Is that fair to both of you?Push them as hard as you need but give them some time to rest.Besides didn't Ushiyama mention before that some idols who forced themselves too much will break, their career ruin.He'll understand
>>36194930>How about we give the girls a day or two off. Is that fair to both of you?Need a rest day here there to let the body heal.
>>36194930>Like Ushiyama said, we can't afford to slack. The practice continues as planned.We do need to go hard. The performance is a big big deal.
>>36195083It is but if they get worn out before the actual performance then there is no point.
>>36194930>>How about we give the girls a day or two off. Is that fair to both of you?Just how far away is the big performance? I'm all for practice but we can't have them passing out on the stage. A couple of days off shortly before the big show would do them and their routines a lot of good.
>>36194930>OtherLets hash out a compromise between the two of you. Yes, the girls need their practice, but broken idols are not what we are here for.
Considering how hard Ushiyama is drilling our idols wouldn't Rin drop dead my now? She has the worst physical stats out of all our idols.
>>36194930Well, you certainly were not going to take sides on this, especially when it was a dispute between two of your critical staff. However, that's what compromise is for. Finding the middle ground was always the best way, after all."How about we give the girls a day or two off?" You ask. "Ushiyama, the girls pretty much have most of the routine down at this point, right?""I would say about 80% of it, yes." Ushiyama nods."And the concert is going to happen a little after Thanksgiving, right?" You turn to Lillith."Correct." She nods."Then that settles it. The girls get Thanksgiving off. Nothing less than that. Ushiyama, that means you got until then to make sure they have the routine down 100%, got that?""Understood, Producer." Ushiyama nods."And you, Lillith?""I suppose it's better than nothing." Lillith sighs. "Okay, you got a deal.""Perfect!" You grin. Another problem solved.>Ask Ushiyama or Lillith something.>Talk to Derosa>Check on your idols.>Other
>>36195193Having done my share of performances, this is a big deal. You could ruin your voice before the concert. Especially if you do a full on week of going hard. At least in my experience, the average voice can handle one entire week of going hard for multiple hours a day before it kicks it.
>>36195307>>Talk to Derosa
>>36195307>Ask Ushiyama or Lillith something.Ask Lilith how Belle's been
>>36195307>Check on your idols.Time to check their mood.
>>36195307>Ask Ushiyama or Lillith something.See if there's anything else they need to speak about or have concerns about if not.>Check on your idols.
>>36195307>Check on your idols.We gotta tell them that they get Thanksgiving off, but keep working hard, the concert is a big deal.
>>36195307>>Talk to DerosaNow I wonder what this couldu possibly be about?
>>36195315But it's not just singing its also dancing. >>36195307>Ask Ushiyama or Lillith something.>Speaking of Thanksgiving, ask if they got any plans for it?>Check on your idols.
>>36195307>Check on your idols.
>>36195307>>Ask Ushiyama or Lillith something.>Ask Lilith how Belle's been
>>36195307>>Ask Ushiyama or Lillith something.Thanksgiving plans? Thanksgiving party?>>Check on your idols.It might be a little early but what do you guys think of Idol Christmas?
>>36195355Dancing isn't that bad unless you pull something. That's just physical exhaustion, and can be worked through.
im saddened my idea for miado puchi idols drawing never happened
>>36195307>Ask Ushiyama or Lillith something.Ushiyama: How are our girls measuring up to the competition? Lillith: Any word from Belle and/or the Doc lately?
>>36195409you can do it
>>36195409I find the lack of puchis in this thread to be unacceptable.
>>36195409That's like asking someone to go skinny-diving in a pool of radioactive waste, no one could handle that level of cuteness
>>36195437no i cant i have no skills in drawing
>>36195409>>36195438Tactical Puchi incoming
>>36195350Now when you say Thanksgiving, do you just mean Thanksgiving, or do you mean Thanksgiving and Black Friday? Holding an impromptu concert at the mall in the middle of the shopping blitz would really boost our notoriety. Hell, even make it a goodwill thing--come see the show, donate cash or food to a good cause, and get your presents wrapped! Its a win-win-win!Of course, it'd be nice to have our girls just enjoy a day to go get gifts and enjoy the madness of it all.
>>36195409I want idols in their costumes for Halloween. or Idol Elves....Or Idol Santas!
>>36195474Just Thanksgiving. Black Friday is a work day. We can give another off day after the concert.
>>36195475The producer is Santa. The Idols are the Raindeer, Jenner and Lillith are the elves that keeps everything going.
>>36195503.....Jenner and Lilith in Native American costumes. http://images.halloweencostumes.com/products/19095/1-1/native-american-beauty-costume.jpg
>>36195551What about Jenner as Santa, Lillith and Ushiyama as reindeer, the idols as elves and Producer as Mrs Claus
Can we lewd Lillith already or is she an adult version of imouto tier?
>>36195718As much as I want to as well. We're in a relationship with Jenner which I'm also fine with.>>36195714Mistletoe shennigans.
>>36195718We're lewding Jenner right now and having a good time with it. If she asks to join, sure. But we have something nice and we shouldnt ruin that because we dont want bad juju in the workplace
>>36195718>implying imoutos aren't always imoutos, regardless of age
>>36195718Lillith needs some down time anyway, We helped spring her best friend from a privet hell and she has her own baggage to work out but things are looking up for her. >>36195748Spiked Eggnog fun times.>>36195760This.
>>36195307"So, Lillith, have you gotten any updates from Belle? How is she doing?" You ask."She's actually doing very well." Lillth smiles. "She's been responding well to the treatments, and Dr. Vahlen says that she's stable enough to be able to begin moving around.""That's great news!" You grin. "Maybe she can come visit for the holidays.""Yeah... maybe." Lillith's expression falters for a bit."Too soon?" You raise an eyebrow."Maybe... yeah..." Lillith nods sheepishly. "I mean, I'm still not really sure to act around her...""Just treat her as a friend." You shrug.Lillith just pauses before chuckling uncontrollably."Always so blunt, Producer, but you're right. I'll think on it."With that, you leave Ushiyama and Lillith to their business and begin heading up to the dorms where your idols were. That was where they were holding their impromptu maid practices. However, as you head up, you see a familiar sight...The Old Man peeping in on the idols' practice sessions. Typical.>Shoo him away.>Join him.>Ask him what he's doing.>Other
>>36195854>Ask him what he's doing.
>>36195854>Shoo him away.Come on man. Don't be like that or at least don't be so obvious about it.

>>36195854>>Join him.>>Ask him what he's doing.learn from master ninja.he still needs to teach us how to steal the brad
>>36195854"Old Man." You say, standing next to him."Producer." The Old Man acknowledges your presence."What exactly are you doing?" You ask, but you already know the answer."Just observing your girls." The Old Man cracks a grin. Easy on the eyes, but rather terrible at being maids.""Lemme see." You say. Normally, you could just peep in using Harbinger, but you were still an old fashioned kind of guy.Inside the common room, all of the girls were dressed up in their maid uniforms, while Maria paced back and forth between them lecturing them on what would be expected of them. Amusingly enough, it seemed as if she was grilling Cole on the proper posture."Wrong wrong wrong." Maria tuts, a prod in her hand as she paces around Cole as she tries to hold up a tray of cups. "Your knees are bent, your back isn't straight, your chin is too far down, and your free hand should not be gripping your dress like that.""S-s-shut up!" Cole stammers, obviously not used to being in maid costume, nor being put on the spot like this as the other girls quietly snicker. "I'm new to this!""Excuses." Maria tuts and quickly lashes her foot out, sweeping it under Cole's legs and knocking them out from under her. Cole yelps as she falls to the ground, and you close your eyes when she loses her grip on the tray......only for Maria to deftly intercept it in the air with only one hand, planting it firmly on the bottom of the tray while she put her free hand on her hip."As you can see, proper maid should never lose grip of her tray."All of the girls "oooh" and "aaaah" and clap softly while Cole tries to get back on her feet, though her unfamiliarity with her maid uniform gives her difficulties before Rochelle helps her up."Well, part of the reason for this was to get the erm, 'rougher' girls to pick up some etiquette." You say to the Old Man."Heh, so you say." The Old Man chuckles.>How about we go get that drink we promised?>Keep watching a bit more.>Other

>>36196259>>Keep watching a bit more.
>>36196259"How about this." You say, putting a hand on the Old Man's shoulder. "Let's go get that drink we promised, all right?""Ain't it a bit early for drinking?" The Old Man raises an eyebrow."You'd be the first man I've met who would turn down free alcohol." You point out."You got a good point there." The Old Man concedes. "Lead the way!"The both of you head down to the garage, where you get a curious glance from Stig when you sign out the SUV. You tell him that you can drive there yourself, so he could stay at the office in case he was needed. Stig just nods and lets you carry on with your business."You know, it's been a real long time since someone invited me out to drinks." The Old Man says as you drive. "Much less another guy.""I promise there's nothing homosexual about this." You grunt."Oh yes, of course." The Old Man nods. "We're just two completely heterosexual men completely secure in their sexuality.""I can't tell if you're joking or not." You frown as you finally arrive at your destination. It was just a local bar which didn't really have anything special other than just being near your office. You and the Old Man take a seat at the bar. Save for the bartender, the rest of the building was eerily empty, but it was still pretty early. You both order some beers, which are promptly brought out, nice and chilled.>Ask the Old Man where he got he maid oufits.>Talk about Rin.>Talk about his past.>Other

>>36196752>Ask the Old Man where he got he maid oufits.>Talk about his past.
>>36196752"So... where exactly did you get those maid outfits?" You ask. "Not exactly something you can find in your local department store.""Oh, well, let's just say that I know girl. Really into that sort of thing." The Old Man smiles as he sips his beer. "Once you've been around as long as I have, you get to know some pretty interesting people.""By stealing their underwear?" You raise an eyebrow."Well, that's one way!" The Old Man chortles. "You know, you've been awfully dodgy about what you used to do for a living." You frown. "Not even Rin really knows what you did.""You really want to know?""I usually like to know the people living under my roof." You shrug. "Both as a courtesy and as a precaution.""Hmmmm, that kind of thinking isn't wrong." The Old Man nods. "What if I told you that I used to be a panty thief?""No, really? I'm completely shocked!" You gasp in mock surprise. "Scandalous!""I know, right?" The Old Man grins. "I mean, that was my literal job description. "When I was young, tabloids and news sites would pay a king's ransom for the biggest movie star's boxers, or a supermodel's personal lingerie stash. And, well, let's just say I needed the money.""Uh huh." You glower, making a note to inform Jenner of this."Turns out, I was awfully good at it. Moved on to bigger scores after that, but, well, once you start stealing women's bras and panties it's a hard habit to stop. A very hard habit.""Do, let me get this straight. You were a professional thief, whose calling card was stealing womens' underwear?" You ask."More or less."

>>36197219"...I have no words." You shake your head."What can I say? I've lived a rather interesting life." The Old Man chortles. "And in my retirement I've found things to be incredibly dull. Moving into your office was a breath of fresh air! Plus teasing those fine ladies of yours never gets old!""Uh huh." You say. "You do realize me and Jenner are...""Don't worry, it's not like I don't have a concept of privacy." The Old Man shrugs. "And I'm not a thief anymore, so I return what I take."You get the feeling those were hollow words to Jenner and Lillith. "Anyways... um..." You pause. "Do you think you could teach me your ways?""Ohohohoho." The Old Man grins.

This has been a pretty quiet and slow thread today; I mean we haven't even hit autosage yet
>>36197462"It would make teasing Jenner so much more fun." You laugh. "But honestly, I think it's good to have a diverse set of skills.""True true." The Old Man nods. "Tell you what. I know you're really busy with this whole upcoming concert business. How about after that, I'll give you some tips?""Looking forward to it." You grin. "And let's just keep this between ourselves, all right? Jenner doesn't need to know.""Lips sealed." The Old Man nods.Suddenly, your phone begins to ring. You check the caller ID and see that it's Jenner. Knowing that you really can't ignore her, especially on work hours, you pick up the call."Jenner, what's up?" You ask."DeRosa called again. He wants to talk to you. He says it's rather important." Jenner grunts. "Where are you, anyways? Stig said you signed out the SUV and left with the Old Man.""That's not important right now." You interrupt. "You're saying DeRosa called?""He's on the line right now.""Is this about the attack?""I'm not sure. He hasn't said anything.">Patch him through to me. I'll take care of this now.>Put him on hold until I get back.>Just ignore him.>Other

After the concert should we apply our new skills on Jenner and Lillith?
>>36197974You sigh. You might as well take the call now. At this point he probably wasn't going to stop so you might as well get it over with."DeRosa." You say as the call is patched."Producer." DeRosa similarly replies.There's a brief moment of silence."So, did you hear that an unknown group of vandals attacked my office and destroyed and stole my property?" DeRosa asks."What terrible news." You gasp. "Who could have done such a thing?""Who knows?" DeRosa says suspiciously. "Especially since you have such a big concert coming up...">Play dumb. You don't know anything.>Admit you did it to send a message.>Other
>>36198192>>Play dumb. You don't know anything.

>>36198223sure something like that
>>36198223That's right! We've been working our idols' butts off to get the dancing and everything perfect, how would we stage a raid among that?
>>36198192>Play dumb. You don't know anything.You're right I got big concert happening soon and really don't have the time to waste.
>>36198192>>Play dumb. You don't know anything.We played dumb with the rin incident
>>36198192>Play dumb. You don't know anything.
>>36198192>>Admit you did it to send a message.But not openly. Drop unambiguous hints that we did it in retaliation for his attempted assassination of Rin but not explicitly.
Any chance we can see more idols being clumsy maids?
>>36198192>>Play dumb. You don't know anything.I think this is a warning
I just realized Derosa still may be able to fuck with our concert.While he has limited supplies, he can probably still afford some cheap Ak-74s or instead of relying on brute force will try to sabotage like how he did with Rin with the turbine
>>36198192>>36198266Maybe something like this."Now that's just plane wrong. I hope none of your girls are hurt bad because if one of my girls was hurt badly or even killed, knock on wood, I would be very interested in revenge. But luckily it seems no one was injured in the incident."
>>36198324he can.most of their good gear was taken out on the response team to the little distraction the gangs started.
>>36198342Ooh, good thinking, supporting this.
>>36198344He still got all of his combat idols and his fighter VTOL
>>36198369maybe we can speak with our allies. do a buddy protection system.they help guard our concert, when they hold their big one, we stand guard.
>>36198192"That's a pretty serious accusation." You say, trying to sound as offended as you could. "I suppose you have some sort of evidence to back these accusations?""...not yet." DeRosa concedes. "But I have very skilled trackers and investigators at my disposal. Make no mistake, I intend to find out who carried out this heinous attack and they will be brought to justice.""Well, good luck with that." You say simply, noting to up your security procedures. "I hope your company makes a swift recovery.""Sure you do." DeRosa says with a bit of venom. "Until next time.""What was that all about?" The Old Man asks as you hang up your phone."Just a business dispute." You shrug."Ah, okay." The Old Man nods. "Anyways, you have any Thanksgiving plans?">Not really. I kind of go with the flow. >Yeah, I might meet up with some friends and family.>I'm planning to spend it with the girls this year.>Other
>>36198413>Yeah, I might meet up with some friends and family.>Or call them down/up here.
>>36198413>>I'm planning to spend it with the girls this year.
>>36198413>>I'm planning to spend it with the girls this year.Do we have family? Producer made no mention this before?
>>36198369Shit, he wouldn't do anything over the top like attempting to strafe our girls during the concert, would he? It's at times like this I wish we had a viable deterrence against aircraft capable of operating autonomously.
>>36198413Depends, if the girls are going to their own families for Christmas. I want to see Cole try to eat a Turkey whole
>>36198413>>I'm planning to spend it with the girls this year.Not like most of them have anybody else to spend it with.
>>36198413>Yeah, I might meet up with some friends and family.tfw Thanksgiving special where the idols enlist Jenner to help them stalk P-san while he meets his mysterious familial relations
>>36198413>Yeah, I might meet up with some friends and family.
>>36198464Actually, I want to see this.
>>36198464>turns out he's just meeting up with his old squad mates at a military cemetery
>>36198438We've got battle brothers, they're close enough.
>>36198482Thanksgiving dinner consisting mostly of a bottle of gin half drank by P-san and half poured on the graves.
>>36198413>>I'm planning to spend it with the girls this year.Cooking turkey with stuffing for the tombs girls.Somebody has to take care of Niko, Melissa, and Julie
>>36198504I like to imagine that half the team is still alive and they're passing the bottle around updating their friends on life. Suffering is more enjoyable with company.
>>36198482That will be a kind of quiet thread. Kind of like this one.
>>36198529What will P-san's family will be like?I wonder how they will react that the veteran now takes care of idols
>>36198561I'm more curious how they'll react to jenner.You just know she'll want to come along.
>>36198561Normal? P-san was the black-sheep of the family? Who knows.
>>36198539Aye, I for one find it a pleasantly relaxing change of pace.
>>36198578I think some of the girls will come along though.Probably Julie and Melissa since they don't have families.Niko who is trying to stay away from them
>>36198601Oh YEA.The Tomb girls come with us.
>>36198601>Niko who is trying to stay away from themWho we'll most likely push into seeing because we've told her not to be cutting her family ties?
>>36198614That'll make for an interesting dinner, I'm sure.
>>36198619Their in Japan so that will be kind of hard.>>36198614Cole might not come with us, if Dr. Valhen might invite Cole for Dinner to bond with her.
>>36198628Wonder how Vahlen would introduce her to the rest of the 'family'?
>>36198627Teaching Melissa and Cole how to cook sounds fun.
>>36198640I'm assuming she Cole's only living relative and vice-versa
>>36198647That is going to be one hell of a sad dinner.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>36198413Welp, looks like we got a tie, so time for a roll off!1. Friends and Family2. GirlsPlease note this is not a vote.
>>36198665....Boo. Just boo.
>>36198665Huuh.Friends and Family was shaping up to be the more interesting one.Booooo
>>36198665Im not sure whether to feel happy about this or not
>>36198665And something that could have been fun and a bit informative about P-san wasted. Lovely.
>>36198665Booooo. We were all getting hyped to meet P-san's rels Merc, and maybe bring a few of the girls along.
I wonder if we are going to return Maria before Thanksgiving?I hope we can see more clumsy maids....
>>36198706To be honest I was hoping for a combined vote
>>36198706>>36198684Welcome to what happens when people prioritizes the girls over everything else.
>>36198720You know he rolls for ties. He does that every time.
>>36198731So true, I've got to remember this whole fiasco next time this kind of a vote comes around.
>>36198684>>36198706>>36198706>>36198731Maybe we can invite them over
>>36198754Oh I hope so anon, I hope so.
>>36198754No where near as fun as going to them.
>>36198770It depends on some of the idols who have families like Rin, Rochelle, Cole, and Sparky might fo to their family to celebrate.For idols who don't have famiilies or are a ways away like Morgan, Niko, Julie, and Melissa might be a good idea to brign along
>>36198665"Ah, well, I was planning to spend it with the girls." You say. "Some of them don't even have families to spend it with. Hell, some of them didn't even know what Thanksgiving was up until now!""True, true." The Old Man nods. "Will they all be staying?""Well, that's a bit tricky." You frown. "Cole, Julie, Melissa, and Morgan are definitely staying. I know Rin, Rochelle, Sparky, and Nico have families they can spend the holidays with. It might very well be a split group.""Well, you could always ask them all to stay." The Old man grunts. "I mean, I'm not sure if you've noticed yet, but those girls would do pretty much anything you say to get on your good side...""Are you implying something?" You raise an eyebrow."Maybe I am." The Old Man crack a smile.>I can ask them to stay, sure.>It's not my place to pressure them to change plans.>Other

>>36198794>It's not my place to pressure them to change plans.Its a time for families. How about we turn it around. What will he and Rin be doing?
>>36198824I didn't know you were me, anon.
>>36198794>>36198811>>36198823Let's go with this, If it's that split maybe we can do this?
>>36198794>>36198811Supporting if possible.
>>36198840Hey, as one the people that liked (and voted) that train trying to retroactively change something after the vote... leaves an even worst taste than losing it to dice.
>>36198811i also support this if possible
>>36198865Well what can we do with just P-san, Jenner and half our idols?
>>36198824>>36198860Is this for all our idols or just the ones who don't have plans?
>>36198794"Nah, it's not my place to pressure them to change plans." You sigh. "In either case, I guess I can just grab the girls that stay behind and take them with me to see my own folks.""Oh? The Producer is going to finally revealing his mysterious past?" The Old Man chuckles."There's nothing mysterious about it." You laugh. "I just never had a lot of reason to mention it.""Well, I am sure that it will be an interesting experience, then." The Old Man holds up his glass. "To family, then.""To family."The two glasses clink in the empty bar as the two eccentric men downed their drinks.>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget to catch PJ Witches on Sunday and Ace Combat on Tuesday and Wednesday!
>>36198891>and Ace Combat on Tuesday and Wednesday!Back to Back Ace Combat?Also what happen to our idols and maria once us and Rin's father left?
>>36198891Nice save, Merc! Thanks for the run!
Thanks for the run, Merc!
>>36198891>Ace Combat on Tuesday and Wednesday!eeeh?Also thanks for the run.
>>36198891Thanks for the thread Merc.Also what about Maria? Does she come with us too? Seems kind of sad and dangerous if we leave her alone on Thanksgiving?Also what was our influence increase from Halloween?
>>36198908>>36198924Whoops, I meant Tuesday and Friday.I am really tired right now.
>>36198930Or we could just let her go. The plan was for her to be let free for some meido lessons for our girls.
>>36198891Thanks for running, Merc. See ya next time.
So guys any ideas of what P-san family is like?Like any siblings or family quirks?
>>36198936Why do I now imagine a parody of "Make a Man out of You", but with Maid training instead?
>>36198932Thanks for the run there Merc, you had me worried at the finish there but I'm glad you proved me wrong. Sweet thread.
>>36198936True, but that depends if she feels like their at least decent maids. Seems like a type that will want to teach them to be a certain standard
>>36198943I'm hoping for a sister. One that's older and very scrutinizing of Jenner. Maybes bothers but really who knows.
>>36198960I wonder about that though I imagine his mother might be doing that or daawing over the idols.I thought Morgan has family? or are they in Russia.Also I thought Valhen might invite Cole to Thanksgiving.
>>36198968>daawing over the idolsPreferable outcome. Along with the age old question Grandchildren when?
>>36198975Half my mind wonders that it will result in which one of you is dating him.Or I imagine them asking a load of questions of what Producer was like when he was younger. Or Mother puttting them to work and teaching them to cook
>Tarin shows up in the middle of dinner preparations
>>36198986>Or Mother puttting them to work and teaching them to cookIf it's anything like my home, this will be most likely outcome. >>36199002Along with the rest of the old squad. Also, everyone calls her Cap. Including family.
>>36199011Cole will fry something.Melissa will be utterly lost on what to do.Morgan and Julie might be the most normal to handle cooking. Though it will end with them asking Producer to tastetest Also Tarin vs Jenner spare round 2?
>>36199037>Melissa will be utterly lost on what to do.Give her things to chop. She'll do fine.
>>36199043With her arm blade sounds unsanitary. I wonder how the other idols who are staying with their families find out they missed a chance to see Producer's family
>>36199068Well she doesn't have to use the arm blade, Anon. She could use a normal knife.Frown and complain. Make plans for next year to go?
>>36199079Then where's the fun? though I imagine her in charge of something delicate or the stew/I imagine Rochelle will be the most disappointed or Rin I think.
