    306 KB STRIKE WITCHES: D/F RADIO IS BEST RADIO planefag !!0ZviLFh59My 02/23/12(Thu)19:20 No.18072147  
    You are a P-61 Black Widow pilot of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, and you're currently being hauled along by a frantic young girl in her underwear.

    "They're killing each other! They're KILLING each other!" she wails.

    "So get an MP, what the hell do you want me to do about it?"

    "They're PILOTS," the young girl says with obvious disgust. "They only listen to other pilots!"

    "They wouldn't dare hit an MP," you say seriously.

    "They are SO beyond hitting," the girl says with panic in her voice.

    She drags you into the huge concrete courtyard that lies between the hangar and the long water-surrounded runway you so loathe. The area serves as an outdoor parking area, aircraft ramp and (as far as you're concerned) Martian schmuck-bait for any alien tempted to make a strafing run right past the castle walls and towers bristling with light AA.

    "THERE!" the girl shouts, thrusting her finger out. You follow her pointing digit to a C-47 sitting on the tarmac, its engines still ticking as they cool down. Lurking on one side of the aircraft is a long, lean-faced man with a little British mustache, wielding a toolbox in a threatening manner. On the opposite wing you see a girl in her underwear preparing to scale the fuselage, a dented fire extinguisher in her hands.

    This is going to get ugly, fast.

    While the toolbox and the fire extinguisher are well known for their combat prowess, they're not exactly effective tools for ranged warfare. Even if they do have a firearm on them they'll need to draw against an opponent who already has a bead on them. And as Minna learned earlier, that's a fucking stupid thing to do.

    All of which is to say: We're safe.

    - Figure out a way to troll Minna by having the entire base gang up on her.
    - Let someone know about that armoury situation.
    - Give our leg time to heal before we fly the ELINT mission. (ie tommorow)
    - Test effectiveness of emotional chaff by thinking the dirtiest thoughts we possibly can while Minna is giving a briefing in front of the Witches.

    You stare at the two warriors, utterly confused.

    You turn to the girl standing next to you.

    "What the hell am I looking at?"

    "DO SOMETHING!" she says, horrified.

    As you watch, the Witch hops the fuselage of the C-47 with impressive dexterity, lands lightly on the other wing, and hurls herself off, swinging the fire extinguisher down at the male. He swings the heavy toolbox up just in time, and extinguisher meets toolbox with a resounding CLANG! She kicks at his knee and connects solidly, but he reacts the way a large, solid man does to a kick from a 16 year old girl: not much. He leaps forward, shoulder-checking the girl hard. She tumbles to the ground, losing her grip on the extinguisher, and he raises the toolbox over his head to smash her noggin in.

    You shoot him in the groin.

    It is importat to note that if Minna can pick up on ambient emotions through merely having her power, without putting any effort into it, then she is also prone to picking up the feelings of everyone else around, not just us. If that is indeed so, then she will be detecting not only our lustful desires, but that of everyone else, namely every single Witch in the room, the majority of which want in our pants as much as we want in theirs(or at least rub their legs most vigoursly). To put her off in such a manner, we could just go out, look our damned best and lust over every woman in the room, though such things tend to be kinda obvious to women in heat, so beware it doesnt turn into a gang rape.

    In part because that creates an elitist club mentality.

    "FUCK-BUGGER ACK," he grunts, hunching over. He fights mightily to keep his balance, but soap bullets aren't gentle by a damn sight, and he finally topples. The girl snatches up her fire extinguisher and winds up to give him a good whack, so you put one into her pert little ass as well.

    "MEIN GOTT!" she shrieks, falling to one knee. She turns, sees you, and hurls the extinguisher at you, but it falls far short. She begins to swear eloquently in German, and good lord, can she swear well. You don't understand a word of it, but you still realize she wants to gut you and hang the sonofabitch next to her with your entrails.

    The groin-shot man tries to stagger up, and you shoot him in the shoulder. Your new 1908 suffers as stove-pipe, and you clear it irritably. You installed half-strength springs in the Walthers (filched from the hangars odds'n'ends box) but you didn't have time to convert the Pocket Hammerless. It's why Soap Bullet is generally played with revolvers.

    "Okay," you say pleasantly. "Who are you chucklefucks?"

    "Who the fuck are YOU?" the man on the ground wheezes.

    "I'm the guy who could shoot you in the nads again," you say, lifting your small pistol.

    "Ah shit, okay, okay, asshole!" the man curses with a distinctly Australian accent. "This - this bitch-"

    "Murderer!" the girl screams at him. "You filthy honorless stinking shit-scum pigdog KILLER!"

    A very, very dangerous look comes into the man's eyes at that last word, blazing right through the pain. "Say it again, you fru-fru c-"

    "Hey!" you shout. "I'll pop a soapy cap in your asses - again - if you don't shut the FUCK up and make with the intros!"

    The man grimaces. "RAF 112th Squadron Leader. Caldwell."

    You turn to the girl, whom you take for a Witch. "And you?"

    She glowers at you from the ground. "Major Wendeline Schröer, Staffe- er, Squadron Leader. Basically."

    "Okay. What the fuck were you guys doing?"

    "She tried to kill me," Caldwell says immediately.

    The girl glares at him. "You tried to kill ME," she snarls. "AND my brother!"

    "It's my war and I'll kill if I want to, bitch," the man snarls. "Old news. Once we're done with the Martians, we'll settle up with you."

    You look at the two downed pilots (hurr) and search your soul for the right approach to this thorny problem.

    You shoot Caldwell in the groin again.

    "FUCKAERFDFVBGDF" he gurgles, curling up around the impact. "SHITWHORE BASTARD OH FUCK!"

    Before 'Wendeline' can react, you shoot her in the back and ass. She falls to the ground, gasping with pain. Soap Bullets do, indeed, fucking hurt when you're almost naked. God damned Witches and their skimpy outfits.

    "It's like living in a fucking museum," you mutter. "Look, don't touch. But I have to! I HAVE TO TOUCH!"

    ".... are you okay?" the girl next to you asks cautiously.

    "... sorry, nevermind."

    You turn and limp towards the hangar, whistling idly.

    "Aren't you going to-"

    "Bogeys incapacitated, problem sovled, yaa-hoo."

    "... but-"

    You stop suddenly and round on the girl, staring at her with huge, intense eyes.

    "Do you know what this is?" you ask her quietly.

    ".... no?"

    We could probably figure out whether they're doing that by checking the signal for some sort of distortion related to having to enter the atmosphere.

    "Ah," you say. You introduce yourself properly, and even salute. "Now, is there anything I can help you with?"

    She puts a hand on her hip and glares up at you. Quite a ways up; she's not very tall. "So now you get all polite."

    "Well, I'm not under pressure now."

    "And you know I outrank you, so you're backpedaling fast."

    "But the Suez...?"

    Barely any. Most of the time leading up to D-Day was the annihilation of the western Luftwaffe and cutting the railways to Germany. Between the active annihilation campaign, the loss of pilots over Britain, and the need to pull fighters back to Berlin or the eastern front basically left a handful of aircraft.


    Fun Fact: Patton got to sit across the channel from Calais during D-Day to make the Germans think he was leading an invasion force over to that French city. In reality, he commanded a bunch of wooded tanks and empty tents. Depending on how good martian intelligence is, this all could be the most elaborate ruse ever.

    On the theory that she's a filthy groundpounder (and a short, cute, blonde ground-pounder to boot) and thus no competition for kills, class or prestige, you graciously deign to help her find Commander Minna and report the issue of the homicidal newcomers.

    "Why don't their commanders work this out?" Minna says irritably, scraping at a wad of soap on her shirt as she talks.

    "They're all in big-wig General-only staff meetings!" Miles all but wails.

    "What's with the hate-boner between 'em, anyways?"

    "Caldwell and Wendeline... well, they tangled during the War. Caldwell shot her down and a week later, he and her brother tangled and shot the hell out of each other."

    "That's inexcusable," Minna says. "We've all flown alongside somebody we shot at. Things are too desperate for anything else."

    "... Caldwell has a reputation," Miles says awkwardly.

    "For what?"

    "... shooting pilots under their parachutes," Miles says, scuffing the floor with a boot. "And he kind of strafed Wendeline and the soldiers who picked her up after she crash-landed."

    Minna blinks. "Oh. We'd... better get security on those two. Did you detain them?"

    The impression I got was that it's rather limited in scope, so there's a question of how fine-tuned it really is. Emotion could be a very precise statement of exactly what we're thinking, or just a very general sense of whether we're happy/sad/angry. That can make a big difference.

    It's a matter of etiquette and considered to be gentlemanly combat. Consider that you have to put more effort (at least one more run against a pilot already out of the fight), actually harming your own chances at surviving the fight in the process, just to take out a helpless enemy.

    After sending some MPs and the doctor to collect the combatants (Minna didn't approve of your "shoot them in the dick" method of detainment,) you track down Sean and tell him you're ready to get with the radio tracking. He's eager, as he should be - if not for him, nobody would know about it to start with. Ian, however, is nowhere to be found.

    After telling Major Miles how to get to the kitchen, you call the extension line that's been run to Sanya's electromagnetic bomb-shelter in the basement. Paddy answers halfway through the first ring, and you tell him there's a ravishingly cute British tank Witch in the kitchen who looks tired and stressed. You figure you owe the SAS a little consideration after Paddy kept his mouth zipped about the whole "shooting pistols at your commanding officers" thing.

    You limp around base for an hour or so, slowed up by your wound, trying to track down Ian. At long last you find him at the long shooting range installed on the east side of the island.

    From a distance, you see Ian standing at the end of the range, which is a good 100 yards if its an inch. Hell, perhaps 150. He's loading his M1917 revolver for another go.

    Well, alternatively, you don't shoot wounded soldiers because a wounded soldier is actually more harmful to the enemy than a dead one. Although it's not something that you really want to admit to thinking about.

It's not like being on the ground, where they can find another gun and nail your ass right away, until they get a new, expensive piece of military hardware to fly with (assuming they didn't land on your side of the fence and avoided being captured/killed) they can't do jack shit to you.

    the dude telling you to ask pilots was just trying to get your ass kicked.

    look, just think of it like this. its part of the culture of being a pilot. you dont masturbate on the public bus do you? i mean, it would feel good and as long as you dont finish on someones shoes you haven't hurt anything. but yet if you did try it there would be lots of screaming and youd probably see the inside of a jail cell for at least a while. plus ruinous fines. why? because its just frowned upon that much in the community.

    A wounded infantryman, sure. Their training time is much lower than a pilot's, so they're worth more wounded and sapping resources. But a pilot's value is in all the training he had to go through. Kill him, and you cost the enemy that huge amount of expensive training up front, and you cost them the opportunity to have a wounded pilot train new ones.

    The Romans tried not to kill enemy civilians when they could avoid it, because capturing fresh slaves on a regular basis was hugely important to their economy.

    The Golden Horde stopped killing civilians as a regular thing when they realized that dead people don't pay you protection money.

    Generally speaking, the only polities that have killed civilians as a standard thing instead of due to undisciplined troops and/or occasional terror raids have done it because they have some ideological reason to want to murder large numbers of people. They also tend to fail spectacularly and quickly, because everyone around them treats them the same way you would a rabid animal that moved into your neighborhood.

    Jamming your fingers in your ears, you wait for Ian to start shooting before limping up behind him.


    Ian jumps about six feet, trying to hurl himself over the shooting bench before turning far enough to see who it is. He smacks you upside the head, hard.

    "FuckHEAD, I'm holding a GUN!"

    "SORRY DON'T KNOW HOW LOUD I'M TALKING," you bellow, waggling the free fingers on each hand to illustrate. "HEARING PROTECTION IS IMPORTANT YOU KNOW?"

    "... whatever," Ian says, irritated. He empties his gun and loads a new clip. "Hey, help me out with something."

    "You can rub that cream on yourself, p-pervert."

    He sighs and gives you a poisonous look.

    You blink. "No wiseass comebacks? Are you sick or something?"

    "Just put this on, dumbass," he says, shoving some earmuffs into your hand.

    You don the muffs.

    He hands you some binoculars.

    "You see that metal plate down there? Hundred yard mark?"

    You nod.

    "Go stand over there."

    "What? Why?"

    "Go stand over there and take the muffs off."

    You shrug, making a big show of how dumb you think he is, but you do as you're told - Ian is rarely in such a mood, and you know there's a reason for it. You remove to about sixty feet away, and remove the muffs.

    Ian raises his revolver, and fires six times, at a decent speed. Standing off a bit, with no muffs on, you can hear the CLING! CLING! CLONG! CLENG! CLANG! as five of his six shots strike the plate.

    You amble over again. "Shit, that's..."

    Ian doesn't look at you. "That's really fucking good."

    You shrug. "Hundred yards with a revolver isn't impossible," you say dismissively. "Gotta keep you humble."

    He quietly shakes the empties from his gun and inserts a new clip. "Yeah, with .357 magnum, perhaps. But .45?"

    ".... eh."

    He beckons you closer. "Put them on again."

    Donning your muffs, you look at the box Ian is indicating with his finger. Opening it, you find stacks of clay pigeons.

    "Put a really nasty spin on 'em," Ian instructs you.

    You nod sagely, wet a finger and hold it up to check the wind direction. Peering down the length of the range, you make a great show of checking the terrain... then you hook your foot behind Ian's, trip him, and hurl the clay disk at a forty-five degree angle away from the range entirely.

    You used to throw the discus in high school, and you manage one hell of a toss. The pigeon zips into the air, moving like a bat out of BLAM! claydust



    You look down at Ian. He looks pale, and there's something like fear in his eyes.

    "Help me up, asshole." You oblige. He sighs shakily and sets his revolver on the bench. "I've always been great, you know, but... after I shot the legs off that tele-bot the other night..."

    "How long have you been out here?"

    "A few hours." He nods at a bucket near you, and you see quite a heap of spent brass in it. "I've tried every impossible shot I could think of... and... they're not impossible. Not anymore." His hands are shaking, and he's leaning on the shooting bench heavily. "I could never do this shit before, but now... I... I think there's something to this Gnome bullshit."

    War heroes die in combat all the time; that part's easy.

    You seize Ian in a head-lock, clamping your hand over his mouth. "JESUS FUCK MAN."


    Your eyes dart around suspiciously. You catch sight of light glinting off the dormitory windows of Castle Barin, and drag Ian bodily behind some nearby bushes.

    "GRRMRMRRR," Ian says. Or rather, growls.

    "Nobody. Can. Ever. KNOW," you hiss into his hear. "Silence, you hear me!? Silence!" You release his mouth.

    He plants an elbow in your gut.

    "Hurf," you say politely, and fall to the ground.

    "Jesus, what are you so paranoid about?" Ian says irritably. "Either they know, or they don't. And judging from the sign you hung on the plane, I'd say our secret is blo-"

    "Hiding in plain sight!" you proclaim. "Plausible deniability!"

    Ian grabs you by the shoulders and shakes you. "God dammit man, I don't like this any more then you do!" For the first time in your recollection, Ian seems truly rattled. "But we've got to come to terms with it. Especially you." He leans back, shaking his head. "I heard about that dust-up with Chuck. It's only a matter of time before somebody cottons to it, and when they do - Christ, with the way you've been acting - what the hell are you gonna do, SHOOT them?"

    no, we get to do that because we gave the two witches in command a stress explosion about the whole male magic thing.

    You can when there's no pretenses of secrecy between the two.

    Remember, we seriously were thinking along the lines of getting murderated in the hanger office.

    Not to mention, we already broke any sense of official tension with the soap shenanigans.

    Beyond that, it ended up being the culmination of a dozen threads of interaction, and it was a muted effect at the greatest.

    Lovey dovey? that was rather more quietly awkward than lovey dovey.

    And MC had cried the initial emotional surge out, drank more away, then played a game letting adrenaline and endorphins work the rest out of his system.

    This was followed up by Minna approaching us for the apology, no way we'd have gone to her that early on.

    On top of that we still found it weird that she came to us so early.

    "Ah! Ha! Haha! Yeah! Um."

    Ian's face goes pale as utter horror steals over his visage.

    "You... you... you didn't..."


    Ian cocks his revolver.

    "SOAP!" you shout, thinking fast. You tug your new 1908 out of your waistband and pop the magazine out, showing him the bullets. "Soap! We've been playing for a few hours!"

    Ian gives you an incredibly suspicious look, but lets the hammer down on his revolver. "How did you get that too feed, anyway?"

    "... what?"

    "The bullets have no nose. They're too short. How did you get them to feed in a Browning gun? There's a reason you play soap bullet with revolvers, man."

    You do a passable fish imitation for a few seconds. "Uh. MAD skills."

    "Mad' is the word for it, all right," Ian says dubiously. "So, what did you track me down for, anyways?"

    You tell him.

    I guess one option would be to put something or *someone* there that you wouldn't be willing to shoot at.

    Actually, I chose the rockets because, considering how damn SMART this particular Martian Commander is being, as soon as it twigs to the fact that we're attempting to triangulate its transmitter, it's going to send a squadron of steam-sleds at us and we're going to need the rockets.

    Actually, it would. Remember what the German dude said, that he was infodumping us because gnomes magic better if they know they can do the impossible. And they were working on the assumption that we didn't know about our gnomeness but that we would piece it together soon.

    Consider this: disregarding the possibility of MURDER BY WITCH CONSPIRACY or GUINEA PIG FOR EXPERIMENTS, is being a gnome a good thing? With absolutely no drawbacks?

    True, but we're also justified in trusting them.

    Fine, you want it dumbed down? Working with the witches is necessary for our survival. And pretending that we can trust them in combat but not trust them on the ground will get us killed. There's more overlap than you might think. We either trust the fully, or not at all. In combat, there is no other way.

    We're soldiers, it isn't their job to tell us everything. They tell us to patrol here, go there, fuck shit up somewhere else, and you know what we do?


    We trust them because that's how military works. Not because they share every highly sensitive detail of their plans with us.

    I don't follow you. I'm assuming you're responding to the "wouldn't compromise anything" part, but I don't see what it being a good thing has to do with that. Us finding out seems like it would be better, since it would let us manipulate it better, which in turn leads to more dead aliums.

    Except the lack of trust isn't about their military action you retards, it's about their actions in relation to our personal being.

    They say "fly here and do something" we fucking fly there and do it.

    They start investigating our lives with no reason, and dropping ominous hints about what will happen to us because of it, we no longer have a reason to trust them, since they clearly are focusing on us as a target.

    If we don't know, current evidence would support not trusting them for now. It might be close, but I think the scales tips that way, especially since we still haven't properly resolved that whole episode.

    And to be fair to that other guy, given the above, we're still not sure that sticking with them won't get us killed anyway.
