    "We had an engine fail on short final, after we came back to base with a hydro failure. So no landing gear. We uprooted two stop-nets and only survived because we landed into the wind."

    Gertrude blinks. "So?"

    "We walked away like nothing fucking happened. Then we thought about it and were like, so, lets get so drunk we can't see straight. And we did. We woke up two miles away in the cellar of a house of ill repute."

    "Ill... repute..." Gertrude says, wrinkling her nose.

    "Yeah, we all hate the fucker, the cops like to hide behind it since it's right next to the road from base to town."


    Having forcibly demonstrated why she should leggo your arm, you're able to proceed up the winding staircases of Castle Barin's old turret towers unmolested. You reach the top of the first one, and lean out the window. It affords a fantastic view of the Channel, the waters sparkling in the early morning sun.

    "There." You point. "The window." You step back from the window yourself, before you're spotted. "She's in that other tower turret."

    "I'll go fetch her-"

    "We should both go," you say, sighing. "If this is because of something I did... I should go."

    "What *did* you say to her last night, in the cellar?"

    You avoid Gertrude's eyes. "Ask her yourself. I'd rather not be telling tales."

    You start down the steps when Gertrude stops you. "We found her. We don't really need to fetch her. A Wing Commander doesn't get much time alone... she should have one morning, at least."

    You glance over your shoulder at Gertrude. "So we just report her position and get on with it?"

    Gertrude shrugs. "Yeah. I guess we just... get on with it." She doesn't move, however.

    Top brass is wondering where the hell she is. She can't just stay up there. We have to go get her down at some point.

    Talk to Trude for a bit, then assuming we somehow get through a conversation with her that doesn't involve getting kicked in the balls and her stomping off we both go get Minna down from her tower.

    You pause. Gertrude has a very good point. You've no idea what you would've said to Minna that you haven't said already, anyways.

    "Lieutenant, did you want to ask me something?"

    "What gives you that idea?"

    "You're apparently friends with Min- Commander Wilke, so you probably knew where she was. So you must've brought me up here alone to ask me something." You glance at the window. "Or defenestrate me."

    She finally smiles. "No, just talk."


    "Why... why *did* you save me?" she asks. "I mean, not, not *why,* but... why?"

    You just tilt your head, too weary to try much on that one.

    "I mean, why take the risk? You're just a ma- ah, I, I'm sorry, I didn't-"

    "Just go on."

    "Ah. I mean. You don't have magic. You don't have a shield. It was almost suicide, doing what you did. Why?"

    You sigh and lean against the wall. "I.. Gertrude, I... I try not to think about it too much, you know?"

    She nods a little. "Before you get any deeper into this unit, don't you think you should?"

    "... no?"

    Gertrude gives you this serious, soulful look. A very soulful look. You recognize this instantly as a guilt tactic she probably uses on Minna all the time.

    And god damn it, it works. You surrender with a sigh. "There's a whole ton of reasons, but, mostly... I love it. You know what it's like, flying, you know?" Gertrude nods. "But I also love the challenge. There's no fight purer. Every gallon of gas you burn, the lighter your ship, ... and the closer you are to running out. To death. The tighter you cut the turn, the closer you are to stalling and falling out of the sky. It's so paradoxical. You're the closest to perfection when you're the closest to being dead. Just like a plane, it defies physical laws. You can't cheat gravity forever. Or death."

    "You're not scared?"

    You snort. "Fuck no. But if I could have a long life, or fly for ten years before dying in a crash, I'd take the ten years."

    "What about the Martians?"

    You feel the growl creep into your voice without meaning to. "They just piss me off. If they want our planet, they're going to have to earn it. Be as good as the people who built it and defend it. Be as good as me."

    "I see," Gertrude says thoughtfully. She smiles at you, a little warmer this time. "You know, my friends call me Trude."

    Freshly re-introduced, you and "Trude" descend the stairs once again.

    "Shouldn't we let Mi- Commander Wilke know the brass wants her?"

    "Oh, she knows," Trude says. "She probably knows where every brass hat on the island is without having to strain herself. It's part of her unique talent. And you're pronouncing her surname wrong. 'Wilcke,' not 'Wilke."

    At the foot of the stairs, you find Sean, freshly shaved and dressed. He's working on a truly massive sammich, his trademark style.

    "Shuff," he says. "So Charlotte is looking for you, Luke just landed in a -61 and he says he's going to rip your balls off and stuff one in each ear if you don't report to him..." he checks his watch - "five minutes ago, and Perrine is stalking Ian."

    "And Ian is...?"

    "Trying to get Sakamoto to let me keep that sword I borrowed."

    "About that. Why the hell were they there, anyways? That's almost as bad as suits of armor with real swords standing in every hallway, I thought that was Hollywood bullshit."

    "It is. It's a display case for weapons used by Witches in ancient times. They're all expensive antiques."

    "Why do you want the sword, anyway?"

    "What we huh what."

    "Might get the DSC from our own people too, if we get lucky. But none of us were grievously wounded and we were fighting with Sp- Witches, so who knows, they might gyp us. HEY!" he exclaims, and waves to somebody behind you before running past you. Turns out it's Sakamoto, holding the claymore in one hand, with a big bow tied on it. She laughs that boisterous laugh of hers, and you decide it's time to get on with things.

    Turning the first corner, you nearly run over Perrine. Her head was at skulking height, so it hits you in the chest.

    "Just can't keep off me, can you?"

    She yells, punches you in the arm, and storms past.

    Figuring Major Luke came in via aircraft, you stroll on down to the hangar, where you find a shiny new P-61A sitting next to your poor, shot-up bird. Luke is standing near it, looking at the damage, poking his fingers in the bullet holes.

    You stroll on up. "Sup, Major?"

    He turns, and you see he's got a cigar in his mouth. You both stand there, puffing your cigars at each other, for several seconds.

    "Give it up, son. I'll always be cooler."

    You shrug, conceding the point. "So, how are we going to get this beast fixed?"

    "I'm not. Your crew chief is."

    Your body suddenly goes cold.

    Your crew chief emerges from behind your Widow. His eyes are dark pools of cold, chilly hate, and his look promises vengeance. He slinks back behind the Widow, but the ambient air temperature remains depressed.

    "Anyways. I'll ferry that shitbucket back to our strip. That-" he thrusts his cigar at the other 'Widow, looking much like Patton as he does - "will be yours."

    You whistle. "Brand-new."

    Luke gives you a shit-eating grin around his expensive cigar. "Prototype."

    "You lousy rotten bastard-"


    "-KISS ME."

    "Base fulla half-naked girls and he wants to kiss *me,*" Luke says. "I'm just that damn good looking."

    You sprint to the new aircraft, ducking under the wing to inspect the engine nacelles. "It hardly looks like it's turbo-supercharged."

    "They had a hell of a time cutting down on the bulk of the ducting. They actually had a Witch help with the parts fabrication so we could a few prototypes modified; so everything will be sorted out by the time the assembly lines can crank out the bits."

    Your Officer-Sense spikes. "Sorted out? Sort out what?"

    Luke waggles his hand in the air. "Some of the ducting doesn't seem quite right; manifold pressure likes to wobble at inconvenient times; especially when you change supercharger gears. You're our new ace-in-a-day and point-man on Witch Island, though, and you've got damn funny luck with machines, so this fucking deathtrap is all yours, son!"

    Test rate of climb, maximum forward airspeed, general handling characteristics. Avoid high and low altitude maneuvering: we don't want a flameout or a stall, and we certainly don't want her to lock up.

    I wonder if having a souped up engine is going to hurt our range, though even if it did, the increase in service ceiling, speed, and rate of climb is probably worth it.

    Depends upon if the supercharger was geared differently. Could run the same manifold pressure with less power needed for the supercharger. Thus reducing parasitic loss. Besides, this tub has space for drop tanks, doesn't it?

    "WE GOT A NEW PLANE," you gibber.

    Sean wolfs down the last of his sammich. "So what? It's just a loaner."

    You bound over to his couch, drape yourself over the back of it, and croon to him: "Turrrrrrbooooooo chaarrrrrrrgeed."



    "Superchargers are better. Any asshole knows that."

    "But what if you had... BOTH?"

    Sean's head slooowly rotates to fixate on you.

    "You lie."


    "Lying fucker."


    "HELL YES," he howls, and he's off to the hangars at a dead run, with Ian hot on his heels. You get there last, and buckle in.

    The engines rattle and snarl when you hit the magnetos, not wanting to start even though they're still warm from Luke's ferry flight. You sigh, and close your eyes, listening to their oscillations and rumbles as you finesse the mixture controls and radiator flap toggle. A few minutes later, one engine catches, and with a little clever controls work, the other follows soon after.

    "They're just cranky getting started," you say on the intercom. "Don't like each other much."

    "Oh. Yes. Hell yes," Ian is saying, and you hear the top turret panning about. "Looks like an upgraded control computer."

    "How good?"

    "Incremental. Same shit, mostly. But it tracks a lot smoother then the normal one."

    You bounce the throttles forward to get the Widow moving, and taxi out into the courtyard. General Patton twirls, his coat flying out behind him from the propwash, and draws his revolver, pointing at your cockpit. He apparently doesn't appreciate you interrupting whatever discussion he was having with the other gentlemen standing around.

    Fuck him, the plane doesn't have your name on it yet. You open the cowling flaps, floor the throttles brace yourself to see what the turbo-superchargers can do.

    And you do. Jesus Christ, you do.

    The P-61 SCREAMS down the runway like a black bat out of hell, the airframe trembling with the power. The heavy fighter autorotates a good hundred feet earlier then usual, and the handling feels a little lighter, just from the extra power. You check the gauges and see a good two inches more manifold pressure then you usually have. The normal P-61 is already supercharged, so you assume the superchargers on this new ride are of better-quality. Superchargers are expensive gear-orgies, and cost-efficient production of high-quality ones is an ongoing science.

    Ten minutes later you've reached 15,000 feet, and the engine performance is starting to taper off. You turn a dial and put the superchargers in their second gear-speed, and to your satisfaction the manifold pressure and other gauges perk up a bit.

    "She's got constant-speed airscrews now, too," you marvel. "Three-stage supercharger, not two. And the turbos... god damn, this bitch is gorgeous."

    "If we get fifty more MPH then the old one, I'll eat my hat," Sean says from the back. "It's still a Widow. Speed demon, she ain't."

    You eye your instrument panel, and lovingly rub your finger over the red light labeled "WEP." You haven't told Sean about that, and you don't plan to, either - let the spoilsport find out for himself.

    "Redhed, three-O'clock," Ian calls out, and you squint to the right, towards Castle Barin. Sure enough, there's a little dot approaching rapidly.

    It's not long until the P-61 closes in on what was once, previously just a red speck in the distance.

    Now much closer, it's quite clear that the speck is in fact, a neuroi bomber. However the prototype hasn;t been equipped with the 404 auto cannons sent with it yet, you can only but turn back towards the base and hope you are brought down in the mean time.

    However, before you can arc back in the direction you came from, dropping a great amount of velocity in the process, the neuroi begins to transform, shedding its heavy armour, it changes into a lighter craft, and begins to burn holes in your craft.

    As good as toast, you take the radio in your hands, cradling it, as you roll out the sky and make one final, transmition to base.

    "I love you."

    "Hello, boys. Having fun with your new toy?" Charlotte manages to make it sound quite obscene, the way she flavors the words.

    "Yes ma'am. This baby, she be smoking hot."

    "I thought as much. I was going to ask you for a ride, but since all the seats are filled I guess I'll have to enjoy that new piece of engineering in another way."

    "There's no way you're humping the exhaust ports. Not before I do, at any rate." You watch as Charlotte approaches rapidly, grumpily begrudging her amazing climb rate. The power/weight ratio of Striker units is amazing, and that's before you consider the radios. The magically-integrated earbuds the Witches use are lightyears away from the hundred-fifty pound vaccum tube set you're lugging around in your own aircraft. If you could ditch that fucking thing, your new fighter's performance would be even more spectacular.

    "You won't be humping anything. Some people might get jealous, and you wouldn't like them when they're jealous," Charlotte says wryly. You're about to ask what the hell she means when she interrupts.

    "Anyways, flyboy - I challenge you to a race."

    My numbers were off. Went back and checked the actual episode. Prior to the update that actually got her up to mach 1, she was topping at 800 kph.

    According to Wikipedia the max speed of a P-61 is 690 kph. Sean says he'd be amazed if we got an extra 50 mph. So that's about another 80 kph, 770 kph total.

    If WEP can push us past that prediction and the quest takes place before that modification, we might actually have a real race on our hands.

    Replying to this question from the other thread
    >I haven't seen/read the series; could someone give me a run down of which witches are in lesbians with each other and such.

    Eila and Sanya are pretty much in love with each other, even if they haven't actually confessed
    Lucchini loves to play/boast about Charlotte's breasts, and she's pretty possessive about them. But she's pretty immature. Charlotte herself seems to enjoy it.
    Perinne has a one-sided crush on Sakamoto, and gets jealous when others interact with her.
    Miyafuji loves to ogle tits, and has a tendency to 'accidentally' grope the others.
    Minne might feel something towards Sakamoto, since she behaves like Minna's boyfriend used to. But going by this quest, she could eventually feel the same about the protagonist.

    At least, that's how it is in the show. The OP could be doing his own thing with the characters. I don't really mind.

    That's what I thought.

    You see, I've actually worked on the Strike Wizard Idea for a while now.

    You see, SWizards would be the SW equivilent of Bombers- Slower, but far harder hitting.

    And instead of Familiars and such, they are guided by elementals. Fire/ Ice/ Water/ Ect.

    It would also provide a two-fold effect on both the MC and the SW.

    1. The SW would have to get used to being more common. The SWizards are a new development. And far rarer then SW. The MC would also have to deal with it. He could no longer get away with crazy crap, and would be 'coddled' in his role.

    2. A new kind of combat is born. More akin to WWII then the current model. The SW Acting as escorts for the longer lasting, but slower Assault Wizards (Made them more differentiated for ease.) With the AW actually able to seriously wound the Main bases of the Martians.

    Could very well be. I do remember reading that some people had sent posters of Charlotte to him requesting autographs.... I'm sure that would have been a WTF? moment.

    Here's a good question. What nationality is our intrepid MC? American? English?

    Fans have never been able to substantiate that rumour, so many disregard it.

    Although the USA doesn't exist in Strike Witches. There's the United States of Liberion instead. I guess the continent is still called North America so American should still be accurate.

    The United States of Liberion is also shaped like a giant star (a...sort of lazy...sort of retarded one...but very much a star).

    American, well they have their own name for it but I beleive we aren't using that in our alternative plotline.


    I figured Reprisal has less tension in it, the mission it's used in is basically a much lighter tone then the rest of the story and has the wing helping out a local city neutralise gas attacks, most of the mission is just flying between buildings and listening to the radio chatter.

    lol @ china simply not existing.

    So how come Africa and Europe are the only continents that don't get a major restructuring?

    I never noticed that China, and most of the Middle East were simply not there before...

    That's an outdated map. In one of the episodes a map is shown on the wall, and the world is pretty normal save for Liberion still being a star.

    If I had to say it's probably because most people are somewhat familiar with the conflicts that took place in these regions during the period, alongside how many of the aces come from countries in Europe.

    Or maybe they just threw darts and decided not to give Europe the shaft, who knows.

    Also, thanks all for answering my question. Always good to know what country our intrepid hero hails from.
