THREAD 35:

ARCHIVE: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kant-O-Celle%20Quest

Lying in a hard hospital bed, with Arizona sleeping soundly on your chest (all cried out and, judging from the circles around her eyes, exhausted after a late-night vigil,) you contemplate your options. Some kind soul left you your watch; turning your wrist over you discover that it's 0430. You sigh quietly - you've been kicking a tin can down Memory Lane while there's a combat sortie to plan. Christ.

But, for all that, you're awake, you're alive, and there's abyssals on the rampage out there.

>Call Goto. Yes, it's only 0430, but if you've read him right he might not've been to bed yet; handling both your workloads. No time like the present.
>Call Goto's staff, get his secretary on the horn. The poor bastard's probably grabbing the few hours of sleep he'll get out of the next thirty-six; and that's what secretaries are for.
>Call your own secretary to get a sitrep, first - if you've got to wake someone up, it may as well be someone with enough rapport to not hate you too much for it.
>Call Hate - he's your best friend, when you get right down to it, and here you are being very not-dead after an apparent scare.
>Press the nurse call button, let the doctors know you are not a vegetable, all evidence to the contrary, and badger them for an extra blanket for Arizona. No sense in putting the cart before the horse, imminent combat be damned.

So from the last thread, we know that shipgirls can control the the "real" ship they correspond to if they have access to it (i.e. it's not laying at the bottom of the ocean), and even do the same kind of reality-warping bullshit to restore it to combat-ready status in the blink of an eye.

Wonder if our shipgirls can learn to just manifest their full-on ship form the way the Abyssals apparently can? Not sure what combat advantage it would provide, since they're as effective as the real ship would be anyway, but it would be damn cool to watch.

Probably would take a lot of resources to do it. Magic only goes so far; at some point they'd need actual metal to use for their full ship-forms.

Also it's probably not good for them mentally to go back and forth between human and warship shape. It would both be confusing for the non-consciousness-related parts of their brains and existentially unsettling for the consciousness-related parts.

That Russian navy?
>>
Okay. So.

My earlier guess, that the Iowas couldn't come back, was wrong. Clearly a ship doesn't need to be 'finished' in order to come back. It is definitely significant that Iowa was controlling her physical body, as well as the Abyssals for that matter, but signifying what, I don't know. It could just be the early manifestations were like that, and later ones came back only as the girl form, but we know that Hornet came back within a week or two of LA, and presumably in her current form.

It's also telling that Iowa came back in her 1940s configuration, rather than her 1980s one, which seems to support the theory that there is a 'window' within which ships can be called back, which could also explain why most of the ships we've seen so far – at least on the Abyssal side – are from around the early 1900s. Although now I wonder, since a ship doesn't need to be 'finished' in order to come back, why don't we see multiple instances of particularly long-lived ships coming back from different points in her career. Which would provide a rather neat answer to the Ship of Theseus question. How is a ship the same ship if all its original parts have been replaced? Answer: it's not. (Of course, a steel battleship wouldn't have had anywhere near all of her matériel replaced, but still.) On a meta level that might explain why Naka is such a common drop.

Yet Iowa clearly remembered her time as a museum ship, which shouldn't be the case if future versions were 'overwriting' past ones. Hmm.

A little of both, though it wasn't so much a shot in the dark as it was shooting at a bomber coming in from the sun.

On the Soviet one, the faries lounges about without any order, and a drunken girl yells at them: "Who threw a valenok (traditional Russian winter footwear made of felt) on the control board? I'm asking you, who threw a valenok on the control board?!". From the American subgirl, a shaved, sober and well-dressed girl, notes sarcastically: "You know, folks, in America...". The Russian girl dismissively brushes her off: "America??! Ain't no fucking America no more!" (Turns back to the faries) "Who threw a valenok on the control board?!"

Nah the Soviet Navy of the 80's. Where the threat was either subs, cruise missiles or planes.

Even though the only true ships they had to project force were the subs.

Ships were just recommissioned to give the soviets even a worse case of the economic shits.

The first thing you do is reach out and press the nurse call button; a little blinking red LED informing you that Help Is On The Way. Your responsibilities loom large, but your deep desire to understand *what the fuck just happened* is slightly larger. You're downright afraid to go feeling around your body, but do so anyway - discovering a large fluffy gauze bandage on the upper-right side of your dome.

Probably means they shaved your hair, too. Oh well, you're used to wearing a cover everywhere anyways, you can get away with it indoors. Maybe you'll even stick your hands in your pockets. Yep, that star is going straight to your head. The transformation into Flag-Rank-Fucker is well underway, if not complete. Hell, you're even in bed with a beautiful underling.

You rub Arizona's hair affectionately, and find the energy to chuckle. Once upon a time, that would've been a serious concern. But after seeing how much baggage the “kanmasu” carry, how displaced out of time they are, even understanding how deep and powerful the undertow of awful memories can be - the thought of those gulfs being bridged by mere lust is laughable. You've got to cling to each other as tightly as possible just to keep semi-sane, really - maybe that's why Kongou is always driving Goto up the wall. And, come to think, maybe he likes being driven, just a little bit - it's so much easier than dealing with the darkness welling from within these girls.

You think back to the date with Shoukaku - how stunned you were when she showed up in casual dress, looking for all the world like an ordinary young woman (aside from that shimmering quicksilver hair, enchanting, haunting,) and how quickly the facade of normality had slipped; as she found entire sections of “her” city obliterated during the War; her sudden pathetic eagerness to know if humanity viewed her as a person or as a disposable machine.

Fraternization is small-fry compared to *that.*

I wonder if that's the differentiator between shipgirls and Abyssals: Abyssals are those whose vessels have been repaired/modified by whatever Cthonian menace is skulking about on the seabed, giving them their distinctive 'abomination' appearance. Shipgirls are those who have become separated from their vessels, so whoever is messing with the wrecks have no power over them and they turn up as just the shipgirl without the vessel.

Underwater surveys may make it possible to identify possible a handful of future Abyssals (if a known wreck has suddenly gone missing) or possible shipgirls to summon (if a wreck is discovered unmolested).

The door latch works with a quiet click-clack, and you hear the nurse arriving, her sensible shoes click-clacking across the tiled floor. The privacy curtain is tugged aside gently, and you find yourself staring at your nurse.

Who is Shoukaku.

In a nurse uniform.

A very, very flattering pale-pink nurse uniform that ends halfway down her thigh, where the tight white stockings take over. The clipboard she clutches against her chest does little to hide how the tight starched fabric accentuates her impressive bust, and as always that shimmering silver waist-length hair is impossible to ignore, especially with the little pink cap on her head setting it off so nicely. Her warm, affectionate smile seems to slide right off her face as she gets a good look at you.

You and Arizona, who is still fast asleep on your chest, her arms wrapped possessively around your middle; rich red locks tumbling across your tear-damped shirt.

Suddenly, fraternization seems like a big deal again.

So, you need to design a new ship class to fight the Abyssals with.

What would you choose as the secondary battery?

>>40867121
It'd have to be cost effective, since the Abyssals can pop up out of nowhere and it takes so much money to sink one. I'd say going back to having armor would be useful, considering what the Abyssals are. Perhaps something like a WWII heavy cruiser?
>>
>>40867121
Cruiser. But with larger main batteries, say ten or eleven inches?

Cruisers. Probably with guns on the fore end, missile tubes on the aft end. Secondaries? Prolly something that can function as anti aircraft and anti-missile systems.

Main armament: railguns. A 5" deck gun won't cut it against many Abyssals, and a 16" deck gun is going to mean building a new battleship to put it on.

Secondary battery: 5" deck gun(s) and a VLS. Missiles are proven technology, and an excellent "oh shit" button, even if hideously expensive.

Size: Initially, probably a destroyer. Maybe a noveau-battleship or cruiser if the railgun thing works out.

So primary missile ship.

Can the AGS piece the heavy armor that the abyssals are mounting? Since most of the dangerous ships mount enough of it to be a serious problem.

I simply said "some girls want the D". And that's true. Some people are horny. Some are not. That's kind of the point of people being people. Particularly when they form emotional connections.

I don't think Arizona is after Settle's dick, but Shoukaku is making it pretty obvious that she does, or at the very least is very interested in him as a man.

This too can be a form of coping, you know. Assert their humanity by acting like humans.

You are, suddenly, alive.
You remember clearly being a vehicle, crewed by men, and them dying as you fought and died.
You also remember a vague amalgam of your crew's knowledge- the languages they spoke, the skills they knew, the noodle shops they loved back home.

People are telling you you're still a ship. People are telling you you're a human, just like your crew was.
The first is obvious enough to prove- ships sail, carriers launch aircraft, etc.

How do you prove to yourself that you're human?
You live.
You read, you play games, you sing, you explore fashion, and perhaps you love.
>>
>>40867409
Yeah, mainly a missile ship. I'm prety sure that the AGS would be able to pierce enemy Armour with the right shells (or putting the rounds in from above).

Though the ship's primary mission would be supporting ship-grills, hence the well deck and laser targeting missiles.
>>
>>40867618
Sure but the original statement was "the world has gone weird" in what I assume was response to the fact Shoukaku just showed up in a sexy nurse outfit.

>>
>>40867637
I should mention that missile ships are probably not the best idea against Abyssals.
>>
>>40867637
Considering the number of abyssals I'd say a missile ship wouldn't be very effective because of cost and production constraints. Last thread made that pretty clear.
>>
>>40867637
Missile ships run into the same problem as existing ships:

Missiles are freaking expensive.

Also, the AGS will sink unarmored modern warships, but are likely to bounce off the armor of old battleships and ironclads even without the Leveling Effect. You need something to cheaply and efficiently kill old, heavily-armored warships with bullshit magic.
>>
>>40867666
Neither are big-ass battle ships. Besides, it's meant to support ship-girls. In an Ideal scenario the ship would carry a group of ship-girls and two AA ships (Burkes or type 45s)
>>

>Also, the AGS will sink unarmored modern warships, but are likely to bounce off the armor of old battleships and ironclads even without the Leveling Effect. You need something to cheaply and efficiently kill old, heavily-armored warships with bullshit magic.

Can the R&D upscale the AGS to say a 255mm gun eventually? Or would that require a too fucking big a ship, near WW1 Battle ship size.
>>
>>40867720
>You need something to cheaply and efficiently kill old, heavily-armored warships with bullshit magic.
What're the price figures on precision guided bombs, and modern torpedoes? Because I'm thinking the cheap option is going to involve hitting below the waterline or from above.
>>
>>40867121
>Main armament
Drone carrier. You want as many birds as possible, dropping Paveways.
The Abyssals are all older ships, so have little to no AA (and no experience with aerial threats). RADAR isn't worth a damn against them, but optical designation and IR work just fine.
>What would you choose as the secondary battery?
A whole load of C-RAM variant Phalanx. The RAM is rather pointless against incoming dumb shellfire, but the Higgins demonstrated that the ol' lead-farter can do the job.

An armoured core might be a good idea. CODLAG, keep the motors and a small battery unit inside the armoured core, along with the fighting compartment. Fuel bunkers, turbines and generators sit outside the core. Armoury sits on the periphery well away from the core, and if any VLS cells are added they are also PVLS.
Building a vessel that can take a hit and keep fighting is not going to be cheap or easy. Better to build one that can stay as far as possible. The armoured core allows it to survive a hit in case it is snuck up upon, with the holdout battery allowing for a sprint to safety.
>>
>>40867723
Battleships would be an infinitely better choice than a missile ship. More cost efficient and more effective as well.

Missiles CAN be useful, but to rely almost entirely on modern AShM against heavily armored warships of bygone eras is probably not the best of ideas. Remember, Higgins was fucked until Iowa came along.

Remember, Higgins wasn't allowed to engage in her element since she was fighting a defensive action. She was faster than the ships she was fighting, and if she'd been able to just run and shoot she'd have done a hell of a lot better.

>>40867792
The Idea would be that the ship would not engage the enemy directly. The Idea is that it would carry about some ship-girls on longer range patrols and provide long range support (sort of like an aircraft carrier, but for whole ship-girls).

The missiles would preferably be capable of hitting over the horizon or beyond the range of enemy weapon systems.

Reality or fiction? As in the latter....

She also started at point-blank range, rather suboptimal for a modern destroyer.

Nah, even places where we were able to get Harpoons and Tomahawks in play at range, there were major issues with tracking and acquisition. LRASM performance is classified above me but judging by how fucked up Charleston and Virginia beach and Norfolk got, I'm willing to fucking bet it wasn't too hot either.

Once.

>>40867990
Any particular reason why besides the fact that's probably Shokaku's aircraft attacking her.

And then Goto stayed healthy through sheer willpower since that time?

Tell the story Naka.

If we're talking efficiency, we could get infinitely more out of more attack submarines than we would from battleships. A Virginia class sub, god forbid a Seawolf, would be an OCP to WW2 based abyssals, even more than jet aircraft. They can move much longer distances than WW2 subs at much higher speeds all the while being functionally invisible to any WW2 sonar. The torpedos on most submarines these days would also be a one shot against the majority if not most abyssals.

Abyssals have displayed sonar capacity well in excess of their base models, so their exact ASW capabilities are utter unknowns to us.

I don't know. Fuck, I don't know if she was even there, officially the compositions of the forces that attacked the cities are classified too.

Ok, fucking, look, a lotta that shit is fucking rumor. Not a lot of AARs got filed, if you catch my meaning, and there was a big fucking scramble to get some kinda defense in place for costal cities.

From what I understand, though, just about everyone that wasn't landlocked got hit. Never more than a dozen bitches of all classes, but they hit fast enough no one got anything to counter them in place. LA was lucky, and there were still a few thousand dead.

But rumors also say they missed a few places. Like, they hit Scapa flow, shit like that.

And I don't know about the Chinese past that there was a rumor going around they were issuing warnings for the girls to stay the fuck out of those fucking islands they've been bickering with the Japs over since forever.

Well, I can tell you that early on when he was running himself ragged keeping up with us, he neglected eating and sleeping enough--plus I think he always drank a lot, even back then--and it had the obvious effects on his health.

So then he wound up laid up. Of course, doting on the lot of us, a few of the more impressionable ones had formed some ... erm, attachments.

And Kongou was always Kongou. You don't know fury until you've seen her chasing three destroyers out of the Admiral's bedroom with a ladle and a pink "raburabu" apron. The apron, and ... well, I wasn't looking too closely, but not much else.

Oh! That's not true.

She had a hat on. One of her little ear-clip-things, circling around its edge as she ran around with the spoon. Rumor is she got Goto to let her feed him after she literally started spoonfeeding him whiskey

“Must be a battleship thing,” you say matter-of-factly. “Less chatty than Kongou, too.”

Shoukaku blinks. “*Thing,*” she says, her tone locked and loaded.

“Well, maybe just a flagship thing,” you clarify, stroking Arizona's hair and tucking her loose bangs back behind her ears, making her look presentable again. “Akagi doesn't seem to fit the pattern, but still. They want their admirals, for some reason.”

“She seems to have found hers,” Shoukaku says softly - maybe even sadly. “She seems quite fond of you... she wouldn't leave your side for anything, no matter how much we cajoled.” Shoukaku smiles at you, and it hurts you to see how hard it is for her to lift her expression to it. “She trust-”

“No,” you cut her off abruptly. “No, Shoukaku, it's not like that.”

She tilts her head, and deliberately scans you and Arizona from head to foot. “It doesn't look like that fr-”

“Issac C. Kidd,” you cut her off. “You ever hear about him?”

She blinks. “Who?”

“Rear Admiral. My own rank. They named a class of destroyers and an Arleigh-Burke after him. Won the Medal of Honor. Died on Arizona's bridge during the attack on Pearl.”

Shoukaku's face pales. “O-oh. I, uh-”

“They found his Annapolis class ring fused to the rear wall of her bridge, afterwards.”

“I'm s-sorry-”

“You remember what we talked about? On our date? About Arizona, and me?”

She nods. “You already left one ship in a dry-dock, and you don't intend to leave another.”

“Right. She just feels the same way.” You cover your eyes, rubbing your temples as an excuse to hide your tears. The roughness in your voice - well, you're thirsty and sick, aren't you? “That's all it is, Shoukaku. We've all got our regrets, and that one's hers.”

“... I'll fetch her a blanket,” Shoukaku says, her voice gentle with sympathy. With that, she slips out, heading for a linen closet. Searching the room, you find your cell phone and a few other personal affects laid on the small table to your side. You flip through the menu, find Naka's contact number, and call.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_DV9b0x7v4

The disgustingly sugary tunes of some old ear-worm you vaguely remember begin chiming tinnily from one corner of the room.

“Aaaaah, drat.”

Your cane is leaning against the table. Snatching it up, you sweep the privacy curtain all the way open with the tip to find Naka reclining in the adjustable guest chair and blinking sleepily. A pair of earphones are resting around her neck, cord leading to a CD player on her thigh. And, of course, she's got a nurse uniform on.

“It would seem the tables haaaAAAAAAVEEEE TUuuuhhhrned, wuh,” she says through a long yawn and stretch, “Misther Bhond.”

“How long have you been awake?” you demand.

“Since Shoukaku came in. I was hoping it wouldn't stick, but then you called.”

“Hmm. I don't suppose you know what the HELL happened to me in the command room, Nurse Naka?”
>>
>>40868439
Elementary to high school age, yeah. Later models tend to look older. The general correlation is bigger ship -> older (and bigger) girl.

“You had shrapnel moving in your brain,” she says bluntly.

You feel the gauze on your skull gingerly. “Fuck. How bad?”

“No more brain damage than you came in with,” she says brightly. “Gave you some drug cocktail to reduce bleeding and put you through an emery - uh, Em Ar Eye - and just yanked it out with a tiny cut and a little robot with a magnet.”

You wince at the word 'yank.' “Your bedside manner needs some work, you know that?”

“It stops you from asking and puts you off-guard, letting me steer the conversation.” She yawns, trying to cover her mouth primly but running out of strength halfway there.

“So Shoukaku raided your agencies costume department or something?”

She grins at you sleepily. “Other way around. She found where they keep the spare staff uniforms and I had her scare me one up, too.”

You give her a lidded-eyed look. “Kick a man when he's down, eh?”

“Just trying to get him back up,” she says, giving you a wink and an impish grin, no less bright for her weariness. “But no, Shoukaku did that entirely for your benefit.”

“Uhm,” you say, glancing at the floor. You're not quite sure how to answer that, so you return the serve. “So who are *you* benefiting?”

She gives you a lazy, smoky, wicked smile. “Harder's meeting me later today, per your orders.”

“Kid,” you say with naked admiration, “next time I hear someone hand-wringing over ship-girls emphasizing with humanity, I'm giving them your business card.”

Naka doesn't grin at this - she simply bites one knuckle as she regards you with dark, serious eyes. “Yeah... I spent a lot of time learning. How to read people, and... and stuff. I was amazed at how much talking people do without, uh, talking.” Her usual frolicsome flair is absent. “So you pick up on words unspoken...”

“...” you reply.

You watch her struggle with her phrasing for a few seconds before she rolls her weary eyes upwards with a sigh. “Okay. Her?” She points at Arizona. “She is all-” she makes a circle with thumb and forefinger, and starts thrusting her other index finger through it, rapidly intensifying the speed faster and faster till her dainty little hands collapse together in a mismash of flailing fingers that slowly expand into a jazz-hands finish.

You lock eyes with the petite, hollow-eyed light cruiser, and see nothing but exhausted, flat frankness.

Shokaku route goooooooo!!

Any relationship with Arizona is not going to be a healthy one. She's so scarred from pearl that she's become a giant dependent mess of insecurity. Giving her the D isn't going to fix anything.

She needs friendship and a commanding figure to help her (i.e an admiral). Honestly, I can see the best thing we can do for her is to become a older brother/father figure for her.

Also, Shokaku is so much more emotionally well adjusted it's not even funny.

Cpl. Hate, I have a question. If Admiral Settle were to hypothetically order you to, say, take Willie Dee and Sammy out shopping at a mall instead of the PX... on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being a JDAM and 10 being Castle Bravo, how shit would be your day?

Does arizona actually look like the 'let's go on a date' kinda gal?

That whole time with Willie, Settle, and Arizona was basically the equivalent of the date arc with Shokaku. A quiet affair where Settle and Arizona rely on each other to get what they need done. Something that matches Arizona's reserved, professional persona perfectly.

I woulda said that Arizona was more the bigger sister in that case as Willie was looking up to her for guidance and Arizona was deferring to Settle.

This whole argument isn't even about Shoukaku. The Arizonafaggotry has reached critical mass, the otherfags have realized we're on her route.

Overall though, /tg/ seems a whole lot more accepting of an AZ romance than Minna's.

And they will rend us asunder like the vengeful, angry God of the Old Testament, laying waste to Sodom and Gomorrah, all because you had to get your fictional fucking dick wet, you sad tosser.

My point way back in >>40869063 was that up until Naka's "wants the D" insinuation, there WASN'T an Arizona route. Suddenly Arizona goes from silent, competent protector (with a loss-of-charge complex) to having an interest in Settle's Mk-46?

That's pretty low-tier.

In any case, if Arizona really wants the TTK it will be hard to dissuade her. Settle's resistance would crumble with relative ease. And nobody else would dare step between Arizona and her goal. Some would encourage it.

“I do not believe you,” you say with prim precision.

Naka blinks.

“My theory,” you say, touching your chest with a flourish of your hand. “Shipgirl with terrible trauma from her past latches onto the closest one-star admiral in an attempt to make up for past regrets and failings. Ooooooooor, YOUR theory-” you flip a fingergun level with Naka - “soul of America's most beloved and mourned battleship falls in love with a crippled old has-been because he half-assed a procedure best left to professionals. I'm sorry, but that's some Chinese cartoon tier bullshit, Naka. Gonna have to pitch me better logic than that.”

Naka tilts her head forward and squeezes it slowly in her hands, breathing shallowly. “Logic,” she moans. “Boys and their god damned logic.”

“Sorry, I left my Ouija board at...” you sigh.

“Do I even have to say anything there?”

“Nope,” you concede. “Talking with a literal ship spirit and still-”

“Open mouth, insert foot.”

“Yeeap.”

Naka smiles through her tiredness - somehow you two always find the right wavelength in a conversation, no matter what. “Well for your information, oh great and logical Admiral, I don't even bother with that can of worms. I just know what I see.”

You do, too - Arizona's a quiet, dutiful girl with unshakable poise and courage, eyes always steadfast on her duty. “And what do you see?”

“Well... earlier, in the command room? When you were hanging onto her shoulder, and kind of leaning on her?”

You peer at her. “Weren't you watching the battle?”

“Yeah, but my *ears* still work. She didn't take a single breath while you were touching her.”

“That's....”

True, your memory reports. You didn't really think about it at the time, but-

“Conversations with multiple people, she only ever looks at you,” Naka continues. “When you say something to her and turn away, she just keeps looking at you, waiting for you to turn back. When you're not there and someone mentions your name, she looks up like she just heard her own. When she overhears someone talking bad about you, she tenses up like a wound spring.” Naka says this all matter-of-factly; and you know her well enough by now not to doubt her honesty. “Haven't you noticed anything like that? Anything at all?”

Well... when you put the radar set on h- “none of that is contradictory,” you insist. “If she's fixated on me because she's trying to make up for Kidd - fuck, she *is* fixated on me.” You squeeze your eyes shut and drag a clawed hand through your mussed hair. “Aw, *hell*.”

“Admiral Settle,” Naka says seriously, “I think that's your own demons talking, not hers.”

“The hell you say?”

“I heard what you said to Shoukaku,” she says, her voice low and sympathetic. “About not losing another ship. Don't you think you're projecting?”

>Men went around calling for comrades, and several hundreds of men gathered on the flight deck for roll call even though the ocean had "already begun to swallow the front, having started to wash over the forecastle deck and was rising nearly to the level of the flight deck forward". Still the roll call continued for many sections, while others threw rafts and debris overboard and then lept after them.
>Fires and explosions continued to increase, and then suddenly the ship upended, causing "sevaral hundreds" of men to slide from their feet on the flight deck aft all the way down to a fiery hell as they fell helplessly into the open fire-filled No.3 elevator; others tried to hang on for dear life.

To hit the nail more squarely on the head (Thankfully Naka something's aware of) the shipgirls are women now. Sure, sure, they had a bunch of guys in them and knew exactly what goes on with the physical department-but here's the thing: They've never had to contend with hormones or personal interactions.

TEENAGE hormones.

And now in the middle of it you have a gal you saved the life of by pulling a bullet out of her, then one who has been hanging around a little more that has shown interest.

There's some back-and-forth here but do either of them really know you as a person? Where will this actually lead as a relationship? Hell, how well does Settle know these ships personalities now as human beings?

Setting that aside for the moment.

>How do you think I understand it so well, kid?

>Jun'yō's ship's bell was recovered by the U.S. Navy near Saipan, having been separated from the ship by a bomb impact. The bell currently resides at Fordham University's Rose Hill Campus in The Bronx. It was gifted to the school by Admiral Chester W. Nimitz in 1944, "As a Memorial to Our Dear Young Dead of World War II," according to the associated memorial plaque. It was blessed by Cardinal Spellman, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, and "[w]as first rung at Fordham by the President of the United States, the Honorable Harry S. Truman on 11 May 1946, the Charter Centenary of the University."

You snicker. “How do you think I understand it so well, kid?”

She blinks, her mouth falling open as she stares at you.

“Like that whole Shell Incident. I couldn't help myself.” The visions of LA flash through your mind again, vivid and awful once again after that goddamned coma-induced dream. “I don't think she can, either. Me, Hate - we both lost people in that battle. And then we had to watch the military and the media make us poster boys to boost morale because we were one of the few success stories of that whole godawful first month, and -” you sigh. “Arizona sailed right by her own memorial on the way to her old berth. She dropped anchor on the other side of it. She sat there next to her own goddamn corpse, with a thousand of her boys still IN it. And she didn't shy away from it, because that was her *assigned berth,* Naka. No matter how much she wanted to turn and run away from it.”

Naka sits up in her guest chair, staring at the floor. “You can't get away from it, though. No matter where you go. It happened, and it was your fault.” Her voice is so sepulchral and hollow that it chills you. She draws up her knees to her chest, wrapping her arms around her skinny legs. “So all you have left is... duty.”

You remain silent, because there's nothing left to say. Naka understands just as well as you do, it seems. She hides her face against her knees, and shortly you see her shaking slightly, as if she's sobbing, but used to keeping it silent. You pick up your cane, intending to slide the privacy curtain shut out of respect for her, but before you can poke the thin white barrier back with your awkward whacks, you see her peek at Arizona - and in those dark, wet eyes is nothing but seething envy.

The Japanese ultranationalist movement is actually rather weak, albeit vocal. Because despite the far-right's exhortations of national greatness, Imperial Japan was Not A Nice Time for anyone involved, including civilians, and there are still many many people who remember this.

Goto touched upon it awhile back.

Oh, that's easy.

Keeping up an empire they never wanted and established mostly on accident. The last 20 years or so are essentially about the USA realizing "Oh Gods, we've turned into the British Empire Fuck Fuck Fuck, how do we get out of this?" and trying to stop being an empire without also leaving themselves open to being exploited by another nation.

Really, America wants to go back to being a pseudo-isolationist country like it was before the World wars, but people (Mostly European powers, really) keep bothering them about shit and then they feel like they HAVE to get involved.

They lost because they lacked the resources to properly employ it. They also never developed a purpose built heavy bomber. Tens of thousands of B-17s struggled to fuck over the German war machine, a few thousand HE-111s and JU-88s is not going to work.

>but I don't get maximum overenvy.

So they both just agreed that all parties present have Old Regrets from Past Traumas. They understand each other based on that.

Except Arizona can soothe her past traumas by diving into Settle's arms and sleeping on his chest while Settle strokes her hair. Meanwhile Naka is in the corner, foreveralone and wondering just how nice it'd be to have someone cuddling and stroking HER hair.

I'd be jelly too.
>>
>>40870697
Naka really really wants there to be someone to be there for her, for her to be able to hug and cry on and be told everything is going to be ok. Possibly even had that with Goto before.

So she's jealous Arizona has that.

>>40870599
Yes we should have simply isolated them so they can keep to their own ways like those pigmy tribes in Africa.

Arizona got Settle pretty easy, he fell into his lap.

Naka finding someone like that will be much harder.

>>40870845
Again, Planefag's Arizona is not Pacific's Arizona. Much of the same art is used because it's easier.

>But the range has already closed to seven-thousand yards; letting your battlewagons put both port and starboard secondary batteries to good use. Kongou and Arizona seem to vanish in clouds of horrendous violence, the sheer concussive blast of their full batteries surrounding them with vaproized sea spray from the heavy swells crashing over their, erm, 'decks.'

Envious because Settle takes care of Arizona like a father would, while Goto is detached from his shipgirls.

I blame Kongou.

Ah, Internet. Way to be a jerk.

Goto's burned out, he's done too much, suffered too long, at this rate they're going to have to bring in a third man.

Leave Goto to deal with Kongo and the other capital ships, have the rest and DesDiv6 stuck with someone who can spend time with them.

Though it looks like Hate sort of does that job already.
>>
>>40870905
It's just a volume problem. Goto had to manage dozens of ships.
Settle hasn't broken the double digits.
>>
>>40870879
Oh. Yeah. Hitler switching the bombing campaign from the RAF fields, who were being hammered very hard, to London, which he couldn't destroy, directly cost him the Battle of Britain. He might have lost anyway if he kept the original bombing plans going, but he DEFINITELY lost when he decided terror bombing was the way to go.
>>
>>40870891
what
>>
>>40870879
To be exact, they bombed civvies and claimed military victories to appease command, because command wanted things they couldn't deliver.

So instead of hitting actual targets, they hit civvies because otherwise command would ream their ass. Which backfired hardcore.
>>
>>40870905
I don't blame Kongou, I blame that fact that he has like, several dozen maladjusted whoreships to wrangle while Settle has five and he also has Hate (who seems to have practically adopted Sammy)

What? No. They were ordered to switch targets by Hitler himself. He was anally annihilated that the RAF bombed Berlin (despite the fact the Luftwaffe had already burned down Rotterdam).
>>
>>40870900
Even if it's flat I doubt Settle will want to think about Arizona's chest that way.
While Planefag's AZ is not Pacific's AZ, it's pretty clear from the other drawfags that the base design is the same and planefag hasn't objected it.
>>
>>40870940
I think he's saying that one of the dudes who does the US ship girls stuff reads the quest.

Well you both a have point, I guess.
I just think Kongou, despite not being one of the first ships to come back, has ruined Goto's perception of shipgirl-command staff relationships.
