Let's see... news. So my best friend of 18 years died last Thursday, she's buried out in the garden. Stupid dog. That said, I did write something to run last week, but got talked out of it by a friend- it was unnecessarily dark and really didn't fit with where we've gone so far. I'll keep it around with the bad end notes I have, ya know. just in case. Archives here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Strike%20witches%201989and Character sheet/clifs notes version here http://pastebin.com/zFxWNup1 I'm also in the IRC, should it become necessary to yell at me. ++The house, on the corner of aqua vista drive, isn't quite what you expected- looking decidedly... suburban. While it's certainly large, upper-middle class fare, it's also not what you figured a retired admiral would live in. Especially not after learning the guy was a shipping company heir to boot- one of those details you never knew. You'd let Merlin call and set up the details- telling her you just preferred to drive. Honestly, you did- the open road helping you some. You think you're starting to come to grips with what's really bothering you, namely, all this magical shit- but then again, the recent string of mishaps in the air isn't exactly doing your state of mind any good either. It's not exactly any great secret that Ice has been trying to find any mention in the witch's histories of anything like what Merlin claims you did, without much luck . You're not sure you're really at peace with the concept or not- of course, you're not even sure it was you. Could have just as easily been Merlin- wouldn't have been the first time she's done something out of the ordinary, would it?1/2
And that probably hits the root of it. You and Merlin, combined, as a team, are just too damned strange for Ice. Slider's already told you- she's always been the good student, even if she was rowdy in school, she passed everything with flying colors. Top one percent of the top one percent of her class, that sort of thing. And here you two are, defying everything she's been taught. On the one hand, it almost makes you want to smile. On the other, you know it's slowly driving her crazy- you don't fit. You shouldn't be, as it were. And it's rubbing off. You don't doubt you're good in a jet- one of the best the navy has, for damn sure. But before, you were confident that you were just good, and could leave it at that. Now? It's different. Now there's that seed of doubt in the back of your mind that says that maybe she's right, and you're a gnome- stupid name, but serious implications for you if it's true. Honestly, right now, you're anxious to get back to a line unit, if for no other reason than you know you won't have the time to worry about this shit. Merlin nudges you, motioning for you to park next to a staff car- maybe one of the admiral's old friends, you think. The Harley grumbles to a stop as the front door opens and Georgette greets you, wiping her hands on a kitchen towel. “Hello Samantha, Frank. Did you have any trouble finding the place?” She asks as you walk up the driveway. “How was the drive?” “Got turned around a bit in frisco, otherwise ok.” “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”
>>26473595>[X] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”
>>26473595> “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”
 “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”
>>26473595[X] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”
>>26473595>[x] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”Reading the threads around the first time Fronk almost died reminded me we got Slider super glue for Christmas and that after nearly dying, again, we may have broke her and she may use it.
>>26473595 “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”Oh hey, that's down where my grandparents live.
>>26473595> "Not bad. Needed the time on the road."Good to have you back, good buddy. Again, sympathies and well-wishes.
>>26473595[x] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”
also quest 1 year old this month!
>>26473595>[*] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”Sorry to hear about your dog, Ghost. 18 years is a hell of a run
[x] Bang Ice and Katya at the same time, have Maverick record it
>[X] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCs2o6QU2soNew reader checking in! Sorry to hear about your dog Ghost. It's never easy. You have my condolences.
>>26473831Honestly didn't think it last too long or would be wrapped up in 30~ threads.
>Merlin's familiar is a bird>Merlin can't use strikersheh
>>26473561Shit man, sorry to hear that, got two of my own getting to that age, I know it isn't easy.>>26473595>[x] “Got turned around a bit in frisco, otherwise ok.”While street design, from what I've seen, is decent, the highways running through SanFran and especially its downtown area are supposed to be a bitch to navigate.
>>26473595>[x] “Got turned around a bit in frisco, otherwise ok.”>Aqua Vista DriveDamn, he got a place in San Rafael? That's the rich part of the Bay.
>>26473595>[x] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”
>>26473595[X] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”>>26473831Damn, has it already been that long? I remember stumbling on the first thread on the catalog like it was yesterday...For nostalgia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KV80ZFnNxng
Evening, Ghost. Bit's around somewhere.
>>26474833>>26473747Get your eyes checked, Boss.
>>26474901They're hiding. Jerk.
>[x] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”Sorry to hear about your dog. My cat of 15 years died recently, so I can relate. They may not be people, but they're still family and it really hurts to lose them.
>>26474724On tablet so I support this decision
[x] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”
[x] “Not bad. Needed the time on the road.”“Not bad,” you admit with a smile, hanging your battered jacket and your scarf on the pegs by the door. “Needed the time on the road.” Georgette nods, smiling as you hang the scarf under your jacket. “You still have that scarf?” She asks. You laugh. “It's a great for riding, yeah. Had to wash it a few times, but my dad told me about a place not far from pendleton that he used for years, little Korean lady that runs the place recognized my name and doesn't charge too much to keep it clean.” You nod to it. “I'm going to have to start wearing it on flights, seems like no fighter ever designed has adequate cockpit heating.”Georgette laughs. “Imagine how it is in strikers!”“Or on deck in the north Atlantic in the winter.” Nicholas adds, joining you in the entryway from one of the adjoining rooms. You smile and nod, arresting a salute halfway and returning his handshake. He chuckles. “Don't have to salute me anymore, Bishop. Just when I'm wearing the old uniform, eh?”You grin. “Sorry sir, just reflex.” He chuckles. “So's the sir? Please, just call me Nick.” He looks past you at Merlin, who's covered herself partway by hiding behind you. “Hello, Samantha.”“H-hi Admiral.” She says, tentatively. He chuckles. “Samantha, please. Rank doesn't apply among friends, call me Nick.”“O-ok.” Merlin answers, still quiet. He smiles. “Samantha, would you like to talk? There's a spot in the garden I've always liked, by the canal.” She looks up at you, then at Nick, then back at you, then at Nick again before nodding. “S-sure.” She says. Georgette indicates the kitchen as the two of them walk out the back of the house. “So, Frank, what happened?” “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.” “Not sure”
Hey, can somebody post up the SWQ IRC channel? I need to know this because of REASONS.
>>26475397> “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”It was more of a failed landing, but that's the gist of it
>>26475397>[X] “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”
>>26475426#swq on rizon
>>26475397>[x] “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”>[x] “Not sure”Both actually.The crash is definitely a thing that happened but the stuff after that? Fronks not sure about the rest.
>>26475397> “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”No reason to sugarcoat it.
>>26475397 “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.” “Not sure”might as well remark on both of these. Because we thought what was happening wasn't happening and we almost got a friend killed.
>>26475397> “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”As good a summary as anything.
>>26475397Not sure, but tell them we crashed.
>>26475397> “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”
>>26475397>[x] “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”>[x] “Not sure”Both, everything, nothing. Crazy stuff.
Nevermind change my vote to this
>>26475397>[X] “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”Someone who is now nursing a broken leg to boot, not to mention we consider her a friend.
>>26475397[x] “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”>lying to the GeorgettemoeUnthinkable.
>>26475426i hate to get off topic, but what do most people use for IRC, had the mIRC client but that thing is a headache with its fucking trial period, any suggestions?On Topic;>[x] “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”Clearly this caused a number of flashbacks not just for Merlin, but for a good portion of our unit. Which is bad, as well, as much as we try to stay alive, death kinda seems to ride on our wings. Might want to mention Katya was acting a bit off when we left, and what condition she is in.
>>26475397> "Crashed with someone else in the back seat."
>>26475397concur with >>26475494[X] “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”Someone who is now nursing a broken leg to boot, not to mention we consider her a friend.
>>26475479This. Exact Words
>>26475397> “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”>>26475499No greater act of heresy is possible.
>>26475540I keep #swq and #aliveandwell open for when people post funny/cute shit but I'm too shy to say anything help
>>26475397[x] “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”[x] “Not sure”
The important thing isn't the crash though. Thats affecting the people around him and thats being taken cared of. Like Nick helping Merlin.I'd say the thing thats really bugging Fronk greater is his apparent precognition.
>>26475397[X] “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”
>>26475397> “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”"Not sure" is a vague, waffly answer that tries to excuse the blame away from us. The incident that happened wasn't intrinsically our fault, but we contributed to the overall outcome of the incident.
>>26475571>funny shit>#swqdude that channel is bleeding dead even harder than before the tofucalypse
>>26475603The crash is what's got Merlin shook up, she's the reason we're here. We can move on to Frank as need be
>>26475612I see the "not sure" bit as Fronk's uncertainty to what transpired. That his version of events doesn't match what others are reporting.
>>26475641It's not completely dead, stop being butthurt that Kota's running things.
>>26475641Sometimes someone links a funny 4chan post, and having IRC open makes me feel like I have friends
>>26475653Honestly I want to talk to maverick, sometime soon. She might feel bad and I want to be bros with her again
>>26475664Still bullshit, because the end result is the same, a friend got seriously injured under our watch when we could've prevented it.
>>26475678as if kota is the problem
>>26475683Agreed so damn much.
>>26475664Yeah, fair point
>>26475653Come again? Merlin's with Nick so thats being settled.From Ghost's starting post, Fronk is starting to question his sanity so it might be time to start looking for help too.
>>26475683Not to mention getting her much needed page time though odds are people will go for the shark twins because "shiny".
>>26475728The reason we're at Nick's place at all, I mean
>>26475734The Sherk Twanz? Man, we'll be lucky if they don't try to drag us back to the hospital to see Katya again.
>>26475810I'm perfectly okay with this.
>>26475683This. Patty is probably blaming herself for the whole thing; she needs reassuring that it's not her fault.
>>26475397>[x] “Not sure”
>>26475810you mean "how to basically ensure no one else gets screen time this thead?"Not to say Merlin fans weren't at fault either early on before Katya tried to take over hte story. But I've been trying to make up for that.
>>26475835We can't really just do a 180 and go somewhere else all of a sudden. Later, maybe.
>>26475878Yeah, you people realize it's a three-hour drive from china lake down to long beach right?
>>26475928And we're in San Rafael now, which is on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge.To say that we're a bit of a ways away from the rest of the unit is an understatement.
Anybody here play War Thunder? also>[x] Not sure
>>26475540Xchat, Hexchat, some variants of mIRC that disable the trial nonsense. I use Hexchat myself.>>26475397[ ] UNLEASH SPAGHETTI
>>26476265payday2 and planetside 2 as a galaxy pilot. Gota drop the troops on to the cap point from HIGH above
>>26476265Played. Got tired of the immense bullshit that the devs kept doing and the sheer idiocy of the community at large.
>>26476491Still better than that PoS they call World of Warplanes.
>>26476525So I've heard. Never really bothered with that or World of Tanks. Always preferred Cold War and onwards jets over props.
>>26476525WoWP at least isn't a massive p2w shitheap like WT. I don't deny that WarThunder is the better WW2 air sim, but it's become nigh-unplayable now if you ever want to get over Tier 4. God help you if you want to fly a bomber.
>>26476612My preferred tier was around 5 to 8 where the US and British trees had some frankly amazing planes. But anything above that I really didn't want to bother with. Far too much emphasis on cannons for my taste.But yeah they are trying their utmost hardest with that considering ammo racks are going to be consumables now and such.
[x] “Crashed with someone else in the back seat.”“Crashed with someone else in the back seat.” You say, shaking your head. “I thought I had it- I did have it- I...I don't know.” “You crashed? Again?!” Captain Blackwell's voice comes from the kitchen as you step in- you stiffen and salute by reflex. “Jesus Christ, Bishop! Why the hell do you hate aircraft so much!” “Emile!” Georgette chides, planting her fists on her hips. “Not in this house!” Captain Blackwell looks suitably admonished. “Sorry Mama.” She says, looking at her feet. “I just- What happened?” You shrug. “The bird felt like it didn't want to fly. Other than that, not sure yet, ma'am.” You respond, indicating Merlin and Nick, outside. “It shook my RIO up pretty badly, she wasn't there.” Georgette nods. “And Samantha called because she wanted to talk to Nicholas.” “Why would she want to talk to papa?” Captain Blackwell asks. “Because he knows what it's like.” Georgette says, simply, stirring a pot of something and indicating you should sit at the table. “And because he thinks their commander is in over her head.”“So I've heard.” Captain Blackwell supplies, dryly. “We haven't even been in for a day yet and I've already had calls from the academy, asking about Lieutenant Commander Bishop and Lieutenant Wells.” She shakes her head, then looks at you. “What are you, Bishop?” “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.” “I am the one foretold in ancient prophecy to spit in the dark one's ey- you're not buying this, are you?”
>>26477058> “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”Serious business is serious.
>>26477058> “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”I'm... having a mind blank, remind me who this is?
>>26477058> “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”This is not the time for bullshit.
>>26477058> “I am the one foretold in ancient prophecy to spit in the dark one's ey- you're not buying this, are you?We Rand now, but who'd be Mat?
>>26477058> “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”
>>26477058> “I am the one foretold in ancient prophecy to drink the waters of life as only the Bene gesserit have-you're not buying this, are you?”
This, crashing is a bit of a trauma for us, while other numerous dialogue might work, this does not
>>26477058>[x] “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”
>>26477058[X] “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”With "If I knew, things would be a lot easier to deal with."
>>26477058>[x] “I am the one foretold in ancient prophecy to spit in the dark one's ey- you're not buying this, are you?”Honestly, if he's going to act like we crash planes for the fuck of it, he can have some smartass as a side dish. We at least try to FLY sensibly, its just that everything else wants to fuck that up.
>>26477058>[X] “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”
>>26477058[x] “I am the one foretold in ancient prophecy to spit in the dark one's ey- you're not buying this, are you?”
>>26473690>Slider super glue for ChristmasSo that is what they call it? No wonder her panties stay on.
>>26477058> “I am the one foretold in ancient prophecy to spit in the dark one's ey- you're not buying this, are you?”This, but add something afterwards about gnomes.
>>26477132Here, in all seriousness should be something like "I have some calling me mythical creature good with tech, others a butcher, some a Hero. Me I don't know, at all.">>26477114Our Boss from the Saratoga.
>>26477058> "I am the one foretold in ancient prophecy to spit in the dark one's ey- you're not buying this, are you?"I've advocated smartass answers in the past, may as well keep at it. We're all off-duty anyway, and I'm preeeeeetty sure we can get away with this one.
>>26477058[x] “I am the one foretold in ancient prophecy to spit in the dark one's ey- you're not buying this, are you?”Which one's Blackwell, again?
>>26477269Oh, right.Damn, it's been too long
>>26477278The captain of the Saratoga.
>>26477058> “I am the one foretold in ancient prophecy to spit in the dark one's ey- you're not buying this, are you?”
>>26477058> “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”Not in the mood for smartass or jokes.
>>26477058>“I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”i think it's time to add in this.>"but i have looked into this as much as i can.... but i keep finding something about gnomes..."
>>26477358tell that to the people out for lol so randumb hijinks.
>>26477378that's the summer crowd in here.
>>26477378We're not all out for randumb hijinks, it depends on how the character says it, you can be a frustrated by inane questions smartass, I use it constantly at work, to the agreement and mild annoyance of all.
>>26477425hard to tell considering what happened with SWQ with people out of hte way for hijinks and with it on hiatus,the same people might be reading other related stories and trying to get their fix, hence things like BEEFCAKE CARWASH.
>>26477425>people are having fun in a manner I dislike!>they must be summerfagsNo.
>>26477058 [ ] "Sure wish I knew, Ma'am. And I don't hate plane; that's my brother Jake. He's the groundpounding bastard. It's his job to hate planes."
>>26477058>[x] “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”>our captain is GeorgettespawnI'm unsure on how to feel about this.
>>26477462So is SWQ like permanently dead?
>>26477527Last word from Fap Angel was RETURNS THIS SUMMER.He's got like 3 weeks left before he's a liar.
>>26477527Planefag is finishing up his Wizard/Touhou quest, honestly don't remember much about it.
>>26477527I think its safe to assume so at this point, the "back in the summer" didn't happen so I'm not going to get my hopes up, unless he writes a Maid Quest style epilogue to give us some closure.
>Enjoying some time with your parents>The chucklefuck you sent to Top Gun walks inhahaa
>>26477556Well Wizard killed Remilia for starters.
>>26477574Planefag also turned her into a fucking Luchadore.I know he loves his hijinks, but that was immensely retarded even by his standards.
>>26477597I think he's bored of his stories. SWQ was getting to be a chore towards the end
>>26477527we may never know. but for now, let us follow his lead in making our MC here awesome as is the MC in SWQ
>>26477574Wizard TRIED to kill Remilia. He would have succeeded but for>>26477597that, which was caused by Keine's history hax.
>>26477623except they're different people you dumbass, Frank isn't always lol so randumb like Young can be.
>>26477615Let me reiterate, it was so stupid that even Planefag thought it was stupid.No small feat.>>26477623Last thing I want for this story is for it to turn into fucking BOUNCE shenanigans.
>>26477631the implication was that if Keine didn't stop him, he'd have died.
>>26477571Shit, that's funny as hell.>>26477615This, Gantz Syndrome right? Quest got too big and didn't know what he was doing, was just writing.
>>26477615he could have at least ended it with Minna getting knocked up by MC, as was Mio by Sean, and we know what happened between frencie and Ian.
>>26477716I'm sure he wants to finish it proper, but he wanted to take a break.
>>26477639>>26477650i SAID AWESOME, not dumb. if fap angel wanted to cut the dumb down, he should have tightened up on the random shit the posters would be allowed to have their say in.
>>264777722/3rds of SWQ was doing dumb/"awesome" things. 2/3rds of this quest is waifu wars
>>26477716>as was Mio by SeanWait, what?I must've missed this on my initial archive binge. Since when did Sean knock up Mio?
>>26477651Yes, but he would have killed Remilia, solving the incident and taking a shit on the power balance of Gensokyo in the process.And Duke could have sprung for a Resurrection or something I'm sure. Hell, he might not have needed to if Eiki was feeling generous.>>26477819Nobody has knocked anyone up yet
>>26477819 "I'm gonna fuck you until it's rape."Also, it'd be Mio knocking up Sean. Do not ask how.
>>26477730i can understand and accept a break. god bless him, i swear he could make a good professinal writer.
>>26477843Ian and Perrine.>>26477850hehehehehe, if they didn't have kids I think there would be a problem.
>>26477857If only we could strap him down and make him read everything Terry Pratchett and Sandy Mitchell wrote.
>>26477857That was kinda my issue with the quest, it really would have worked better if planefag had just written it as a story and not a quest, it would have come out a lot better because it would have been objectively better without the usual /tg/ stupidity in it.
>>26477843she didn't know that, in Gensokyo people stay dead when they're killed, and maybe becoming a ghost.Also does how it feel to be one of the current problems with AWiY?>>26477883Being a professional writer requires sticking to schedules and not overly pandering to moronic fanbases.
>>26477906>Being a professional writer requires sticking to schedules and not overly pandering to moronic fanbases.I have no idea whether you're agreeing or arguing with me.
>>26477809the waifu wars is an understandable evil. we're dragging in /a/ by having this based in an anime. with /a/ flooded with waifu warriors, you should have known this.
>>26477883Another thing about being a prof. writer: There's the matter of planning, idea review, and other things PF regularly ignores, relying on his raw talent alone.
>>26477597That wasn't permanent. Just aftereffects of Keine's intervention. Think of what happened to Ford and Arthur after they got rescued in HGTTG.
>>26477905It really does need plot though. Not once a week raids. I know he was building up to a massive operation of some kind but we never see anything actually happen other than force build up.
>>26477929>implyingPeople are naturally attracted to certain characters, and are gonna argue about who's the best no matter what. And /a/ hates this series of quests
>>26477938I'm pretty sure he could've come up with something saner than a fucking Luchadore, he even admitted it was pretty stupid.
>>26477925If you're the one who finds him being a professional writer funny, more agree than disagree. He has the talent alright, but not alot else.
>>26477929Hey now, some of us are euqal parts /tg/ and /a/ and know how to leave the waifu shit where it belongs, although if the writers wanted to keep this shit from getting out of hand, they need to set a clear winner from the beginning and show the develop meant of the relationship, not give us this murky water shit we've gotten in almost all SW quests.
>>26477900that can still be done.>>26477905some how in the back of my mind, he just might be doing that. putting it down as a quest here, he's stress testing the orginal story in a sense. or something like that. (shrugs) just a passing idea.
>>26477906>in Gensokyo people stay dead when they're killedNot true, Eiki can reincarnate people when she judges them.>be one of the current problemsUh, what?
>>26478003Most of the SW fans on /a/ didn't like how SWQ shits on the lore/characters. I think both are alright, but they are very different.
>>26478003When ever SWQ or a spin-off is mention they say 'Not Anime related' Bullshit. The worse ones hate the fact there is male MC's. I wish I could discuss the quests in /a/.
>>26477983Are you surprise? It's /tg/ and most writers are far more familiar with planes and guns than they are normal romance. Hell look at this Quest with Ghost trying to pull action scenes for any and all reasons.>>26477995reincarnate is not the same as resurection, reincarnate would have him being born as a kid in gensokyo with maybe some of his memories.I say current problems because well a chunk of the readers never asked for 'self righteous crusade against gensokyo'But could we just drop this before it derails the thread.
>>26478017Eh, if I wanted to follow the lore and characters in complete goosestep I'd read some doujins. The fun of a quest based on something like that is impacting/changing shit
>>26478017Funny, I like SWQ specifically because the changes PF made to the lore and background, despite how he handled the story later on.>>26477977I was the guy who found it funny, anyway, his inclination towards shenanigans doesn't help him either.I know plenty of fanfiction writers who deserve to get published, unfortunately, Planefag isn't one of them.
>>26478050Those are yurifags, the worst kind of people on /a/
>>26478089>SWQ specifically because the changes PF made to the lore and backgroundBINGO! I love this fact, it could have some work done on it but it's still better then SW proper.>>26478091It's not just yurifags that bitch about it but they are some of the worse.
>>26478089Yeah that's one of the many things stopping him: the sheer impulse to do some sort of hijinks. Sure it'd fly on neckbeard websites, but on the professional scene, it takes far more than sheer randumb humor to cut muster.I believe he hasn't reined in such things because with his level of talent he gets away with it in most places and thus feels no need to improve upon it.>>26478091that or from /u/, one of the two.
>>26478083>Are you surprise? It's /tg/ and most writers are far more familiar with planes and guns than they are normal romance>normal romance/a/ Strike Witches fans in general don't know shit about normal romance, and I'm pretty sure they're a crowd that we don't want to cater to whatsoever, if at all possible.
>>26478126It helps that SWQ, and Strikers '89, and tank witches and all of that play up the fact that magical girl child soldiers is hell without going full grimderp.Is compelling
>>26478165You're a dick and hurt my feelings :(
Guys, I don't mean to be rude... but could we keep this sort of chat til after GhostDivision finishes for the night?
>>26478228FUCK IT IT'S TIME FOR A SUMMONING RITUALNYAN NYAN
>>26478083>Are you surprise? Not particularly, and I don't think they're as bad with romance as you think they are, they just never try because I think they believe the audience wouldn't like it, but fuck, there is a reason there is always some romance in alot of action flicks, dual nature of the hero and all that fun shit.>>26478165>/a/ Strike Witches fans in general don't know shit about normal romanceWon't argue the point, I don't think its entirely true, but not enough to argue.> I'm pretty sure they're a crowd that we don't want to cater to whatsoever, if at all possible.And now you're just being an asshole.
>>26478252That's Deculture's summoning ritual. I have no idea what would be required to summon Ghost....
>>26478261hard to believe considering the waifu wars and the fact the girls are part of the draw to somethign SW related. The lack of witches in most of the related stories are why they're not as popular.Though they may be catering to those who'd prefer a moist nugget to a girl
>>26478269I'd suggest Highway To The Dangerzone, but we haven't been Topgun Quest in a while.
>>26478175>>26478126>>26478152a agree with you three.
>>26478296Or maybe they're not popular because they're knockoffs that aren't as good? I only enjoyed 89 and SWQ.
>>26478261>Won't argue the point, I don't think its entirely true, but not enough to argue./a/ is a board that routinely argues which sister is the best sister to fuck. No, they don't know shit about 'normal', that's fuckin' anime, dude.>And now you're just being an asshole.Everytime these threads degenerate into waifu wars, they go to shit. The story is good enough that it doesn't need /a/ style waifu-fagging.
>>26478327You do know most of that is tongue in cheek joking about which character they like the most right? You're being really xenophobic because some people get attached to fictional characters, when you have no proof that the people you hate and the place you hate correlate.
>>26478300>Topgun QuestAh the good ol' days.
>>26478323I wouldn't say that as most of the writefaggotries lack the sense of fun/humor SWQ at it peak does (I don't mean randumb hijinks, but the occasional brillaint caper)>>26478327>Story>Good enoguhif you're only interested in the combat scenes and even then it's mired by morons thinking it's a vidya game, just look at the Kitty Hawk.>>26478383Indeed where there was promise.
Let's try this: Mighty Wings + AC6https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bnzl8Bwwc9M
 “I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.”“I sure wish I knew, Ma'am.” You respond, trying to keep your voice level. “I'm half afraid- you know what someone said? Merlin told me- she overheard it. They said I'd burnt that cat out. Something about me, I cause jets to just fall apart.” You sigh. “What if that's true?” “Do you believe that?” Georgette asks, looking over her shoulder at you. “I- Not really. You say. “But there's a lot of people that attribute a lot of strange things to Merlin and I, so....” “So you think it might be true.” Captain Blackwell says. You nod. “You two are a strange combination, true,” She says with a snort. “But most of that's probably because we've never seen a gnome- oh, don't look at me like that. You think anybody who wasn't could have survived Tanana? Let alone the shit you did over Japan.” You shake your head, thinking. True, the last few times it had come up, the witches- Slider and Ice, especially, felt certain you were a gnome, and you'd dealt with it just fine. It comes as no great revelation that your captain thinks it's true too. 1/2
>>26478393For fuck's sake, don't start up about the Kitty Hawk again. Please, people. You've argued it to death too many times.
“We've never seen a gnome working with a witch this closely. Hell, I can count on my hands the number of gnomes that even worked with witches in general over the past fifty years, let alone in the same aircraft.” She shrugs. “It's entirely possible this kind of thing would happen with any other witch, given the same time.” “But it's still a big deal?” You ask. “I mean, you said it yourself, captain. You weren't even home a day, and they were already calling.”She nods. “Sure. Because it is unusual, and they're not sure, either.” “But you are, Emile?” Georgette asks. She nods. “Yes mama. I am. This it just a gnome and a witch working together in the same aircraft. I'm sure we'd see the same thing in, say, a tank.” She motions to you- for your benefit, Georgette still has her back turned. “Papa told us about that one pilot he met during the war- remember? The one he caught trying to steal ice cream?” Georgette laughs, and nods. “Well,” Emile continues, “If he'd have flown with a witch gunner, say, maybe we'd have seen the same thing.” Georgette shrugs. “So you think it's just their bad luck to be the first, Emile?” “Bad luck? no.” The captain says. “They're going to be the ones taught about in every academy- I'd be shocked if Lieutenant Wells didn't start finding herself swamped by offers to teach at academies after she's out of the Navy.”She looks at you. “What about you, Bishop? You given any thought to what you'll do if I'm right?”  “Not really, no ma'am.” “It won't change my plans, honestly.” Other! Write in!
>>26478383>>26478393i know, but there would only go so far. look on the bright side. at least it wasn't created as SW/40k quest....
>>26478466>I'm sure we'd see the same thing in, say, a tank.”DAT FORESHADOWING
>>26478466> “Not really, no ma'am.”We have plans?
>>26478403>>26478457IT WORKS! We have our summoning ritual!>>26478466[X] “Not really, no ma'am.”
>>26478466"I just want to keep flying."
>>26478466>[x] “It won't change my plans, honestly.”Fly about, retire, write memoirs, a witch at the side. Little baby witches or gnomes, maybe.
>>26478466> “Not really, no ma'am.”Fuck we're still coming to grips with it at all
>>26478466>[x] “Not really, no ma'am.”Quite honest.And once more I'm reminded of the "wave of the future" suggested in TW89: Witches being forced out of strikers and into tanks as batteries. It's the wet dream of testoserone poisoned /k/>>26478459If we don't learn from the past, we'll be doomed to repeat it.>>26478482>SW/40kI wouldn't read that POS in the first place as it'd likely involve killing all the witches for being Xenos.... if not worse.
>>26478529And the farm, don't forget the farm. Not the one in the sky.
>>26478466> "Not really, no ma'am."Hell, Fronk don't know yet.
>>26478466> “Not really, no ma'am.”Honestly, no.
>>26478548Witches man, they'll be hunted for being witches.To be fair, magic in that setting is kind of a serious problem.
I wonder if a SW quest focusing on Minna trying to balance her own life and the pressure of command would be well recieved.
>>26478466> “Not really, no ma'am.”
>>26478466[x] "I'll never be able to fly combat with anyone but Merlin in the back. Not that I want to, but what if I need to?"
>>26478466>[x] “Not really, no ma'am.”I dunno, man.
>>26478466[X] “It won't change my plans, honestly.”
>>26478548>testoserone poisoned /k/A-10's with two seats, witch in the back. It be all we ever wanted.
>>26478466 “Not really, no ma'am.”Merlin is really attached to me and for her to go out on her own doesn't seem to be in her mind.oh yea. ad this.>"Wait, who was this gnome fellow that tried to swipe the ice cream? tell me more about him and those witches. is he still alive?"we NEED to do this!
>>26478466> “Not really, no ma'am.”Honestly, I wasn't aware that we had any plans apart from hang out with hot pantsless girls.
>>26478466>[X] “Not really, no ma'am.”
Would Frank really need to do anything after the war? He's famous and stuff, shouldn't he just have to make a book deal or something to net ez money and stuff?
>>26478509now i think about it. the Reds pulled this off first. my jimmies are slightly russled from that fact.
>>26478638Fronk has showed plans to survive and write about his experiences.He said as much to Ice, once.
>>26478684He'll go mercing in Africa.
>>26478684> “Not really, no ma'am.”On the note of post war, is there still a chance Frank can die in this thing?
>>26478618...I'll be in my bunk.
>>26478684be a teacher if he builds up the fortature to do it. on the other hand, he'll be an automatic celeibity in the media. movies and TV deals would be rolling in.
>>26478466> “Not really, no ma'am.”>>26478722Reactivate Katya Terminator?
>>26478722Very much so. ask bit about the bad end.
>>26478684We already know he plans to write a book, but do you honestly see a guy like Frank sitting back and taking it easy? Nah, he is either going to rise in rank or possibly become an instructor, anything else would feel a bit out of character to me.
>>26478722In universe, yeah. We're not omnipotent or anything and its not like someone couldn't just shoot us on the groundBut MC and all that means we'll have to fuck up bad for that to happen
>>26478708No, they just put a witch in a tank. any gnomish activity is completely conjecture
>>26478752Or he'll be like the Colonel, happily and comfortably flying
I don't think he's put any thought into his future as well... the war happening and derailing whatever train of thought he has.
>>26478747Alright I'll bite, how bad was it?>>26478752I can easily see Frank teaching at TopGun, commanding a squadron, a Air Group or going the surface command route and getting his own carrier. . . well down the line.Frank's what 26 right?
>>26478466[x] “Not really, no ma'am.”[x] Other! Write in!"To be honest ma'am, the only thing I'm really concerned with in my future is if I'm a safety hazard to the people I care for."
>>26478795>Last thread of strikers '89 returns to its top gun rootsyeah, that could work
>>26478795I'm, hoping for carerr flag rank route.
>>26478795You don't wanna know, man. It's some bad shit.
>>26478830What Frank ends up in a POW camp and dies from malnourishment bad?
>>26478830The dog dies?
>>26478853Nah, more of an emotional roller coaster than anything.
>>26478855OH GOD DON'T GIVE HIM MORE IDEAS YOU FOOL.
>>26478868>other witches go batshit on Katya out of jealousy
>>26478887Hey, we're talking about the bad end here, not the happy one...That was a joke.
>>26478855Hey fuck you.
>>26478904It wasn't very amusing.
>>26478868Watching his witches die all around him and Merlin getting killed in the back seat, followed by the final image of a nuke going off in the distance bad?
>>26478904Speaking of you, Bit. I think that after tonight you should update the Character Document. Got at least two new characters, and one's our captain.
>>26478935Something like that.
>>26478868>Forced to eject>quest returns to its top gun roots ;_;
>>26478941She ain't new, she's just been a background element for MONTHS. And I've been meaning to update it, but I've been scrambling to get stuff ready for grad school.>>26478935Oh, no, my dear boy. It's very, how shall I put it... bittersweet.>>26478952...Clever.
>>26478868Hmm...So:>Merlin is taken away from Fronk, whose combat performance suffers without her as RIO>Slider is KIA by some random witch, shit happens in combat>Ice is broken at the loss of her best friend>Fronk tries to comfort Ice, but Ice is inconsolable, says something incredibly mean spirited>Next day, Fronk KIA versus Stalinka in epic final duel>VF-3 literally falls apart from thereThat bad or worse?
>>26478935>>26478855>>26478853wrong, Wrong, WRONG! the bad end is Frank is kidnapped by our russian yandere in the middle of the night out of his bed and dragged off to russia to marry her and breed super witchs.
>>26478992But thats a good end?
>>26478992Again, we're talking about the BAD end, not the coocoo bananas ending.
>>26478962Well, we're at about an hour between Ghost's posts. Just sayin'.
>>26479045So bad end is a death rush at the russian controlled Megalith with all the witches dying for Fronk to survive to fly down the pipe?
>>26479081And I'm running a game of Rogue Trader right now. Calm your tits.>>26479105Nope.
>>26479081ghost is getting as bad in posting as BlackJack in the GuP quests.
>>26479146TOday's bad because Georgette and Nick aren't really my characters, so I'm going slow and having their writer make sure I'm not butchering them. that said, I'm on the update right now. sorry.
>>26479175>having their writer make sure I'm not butchering them.That's one of the neat things about the SW quests, all this collaboration and shit
>>26479146could always just go do something else and wait for the archive instead of get frustrated over being entertained
>>26479175AH, ok then. if you are talking with others then, i will retract my statement and offer an appology.
>>26479219i went though the archives already. i hunger for more!
>>26478962>been a background element for months>when we first met Georgette and Nick we confused Georgette for Captain Blackwell while we were still waking up from the drugs>Georgette mentions later that "Emilie said she was going to call later"Well, I'll be jiggered.
>>26479175It's cool, thanks to >>26479204I'm just gonna surf through Macross vids till post time.
>>26479326You doubted me, anon?
>>26479376I got to go out in the dark to check on the hail damage to my truck..
>>26479414Dude, dude, hail, in summer? Suckage
>>26479527it came in just as the quest started. it was golf ball to baseball size..

>>26479738that or /k/ used it as target practice. right? maybe it's time to look into a car cover port?
>>26479637Eh, I got hurricanes, we could argue all day who has it worse, though I work in car rentals,and hail is my bane, so I know the feeling

>>26479857this, i rest my case.
[x] “Not really, no ma'am.”“Not really, no ma'am.” You answer with a slight shrug. “I'd always just thought I'd go career and stay with it till they wouldn't let me fly anymore.” The captain shrugs. “The way you're going, that might not be that much longer. I've already heard that you're restricted to VF three aircraft from here on in.” She grins. “Of course, it's not unheard of for a pilot to make his way pretty far up through having history with witches. Ask Admiral Nixon about that sometime.”“Emile...” Georgette says in a warning tone. “Sorry mama.” She says, again. “Emile, why don't you show Frank around a bit? Supper is about ready, but I need to set the table.” Georgette says, turning around. She nods. “Come on Lieutenant Commander. Might as well see a bit of the place while you're here.”The house, as it turns out, is quite nice- smaller, perhaps, than you expected, but then again, there's only the two of them living here. A Bren light machine gun is mounted above the fireplace. “Mama taught us how to shoot on it.” Captain Blackwell says, noticing your gaze. “A bit different from the M-16 we carried in my day, but I like to think it made it easier in the long run.” You nod, looking at the pictures- framed school pictures, one of your captain, you think, leaning against a mustang, the keys dangling from one hand and a grin on her face. “My first car.” She supplies. “Bought it new, back in '67, just out of the academy.”1/2
>>26478017/a/non here. These quests suck because you niggers can't write cute girls to the point where SW's paint-by-numbers cast has almost double the charm and appeal of any given character in here. SWQ and its derivatives only seem to have the asinine, childish appeal of DOING IT RIGHT, and I shouldn't have to explain how treating the Strike Witches setting as a place to create serious drama is a mistake of the highest order.tl;drStrike Witches Quests are tryhards.
Other pictures hang along the walls- a portrait of an old joint fighter wing, eight witches, including a younger Georgette, arrayed in front of a Fighter- you can't ID it- in a hangar. A faded unit patch shows a bird of prey- eagle, maybe? Gripping a cracked red hexagon in it's talons, a lightning bolt peircing it's prey. Above the bird, the patch reads 502nd Joint Fighter Wing, and below, it bears the legend Brave Witches. “Mama's unit, from the war.” Captain Blackwell says, smiling as you look back at her. “After the Gloire went down.” Framed paintings of a pair of ships- you easily ID the battleship California in one, the other, you're not sure- looks like a light cruiser, maybe a destroyer. “The cali I recognize,” you say, “But what's this other one?”“The Gloire. Mama's ship in the earlier part of the war. Light cruiser with the french navy. Went down in the north Atlantic taking on three martian dreads.”“Three dreads? In a light cruiser?” You ask, kind of surprised. “Either their skipper was nuts or...”“He couldn't outrun them- they were working an ambush. He died on the bridge early on, the man that took over, LaCroix, he dispatched mama to save the ship's logs and give warning. She ended up being picked up by the California when papa dove into the water after her. The two dreads weren't a match for the royal navy battlegroup sent to hunt them down.”2/3 (oops)
“I thought you said there were three?” You ask, looking back at the painting. “The Gloire took one with her.” Captain Blackwell says, simply. A few other pictures dot the walls- including Captain Blackwell's official picture- the one taken when she received command of the Saratoga. She sighs when she looks at it. You're about to ask what's wrong when Georgette calls- dinner's ready.  “Don't dwell on it cap. We heard what happened, you did a hell of a job.” “War is chaos, captain. You can do everything right and still die.” Say nothing.  Write in!
>>26479944>[x] “Don't dwell on it cap. We heard what happened, you did a hell of a job.”
>>26479944[x] Clap her on the shoulder.
>>26479944>[x] Say nothing.She just had her ship heavily damaged. She probably lost a fair amount of her crew in the process. Anything we say will look like a childish attempt.
>>26479944> Write in!>You did the best you could with what you had, cap. That's all they can ask of us, then it's down to the rest of the world
>>26479944> "Don't dwell on it, Cap. We heard what happened, you did a hell of a job."And do this.>>26479975
>>26479929wait a sec, i remember that event!>>26479944 “Don't dwell on it cap. We heard what happened, you did a hell of a job.”also add.>"I do wonder who that Gnome Pilot was that tried to steal that ice cream."
>>26479909>The house, as it turns out, is quite nice- smaller, perhaps, than you expected, but then again, there's only the two of them living here. A Bren light machine gun is mounted above the fireplace.>“Mama taught us how to shoot on it.” Captain Blackwell says, noticing your gaze. “A bit different from the M-16 we carried in my day, but I like to think it made it easier in the long run.”Oh right, she's a veteran of the Eastern Front. Makes sense that she's the one who taught the kids how to shoot a gun.
>>26479944>Other Just place a hand on her shoulder. "You did all you could."
>>26480072Ice's gramma is German?

>>26479944[X] “Don't dwell on it cap. We heard what happened, you did a hell of a job.”
>>26480168It would explain the work ethic and the tendency towards discipline, wouldn't it?
>>26480168>German grandmother>Polish last name
>>26480168i guess Ice bleaches her hair then. she should restore her orginal red hair then.
>>26480214altered history universe. maybe Ice's dad was a polish emigrent to germany to escape the iron certian?
>>26480272Or he was an American with a Polish last name who married the half-German daughter of one ice cream stealing gnome.
>>26480314>>26480272I think the point was that Germans and Polish people didn't tend to mix very well after 1939.
>>26480314that works better than my idea.
>>26480366 World changed after the Martians.
>>26479929[ ] "Holy crap."
I think it's just some retarded ass theory involving Young, similar to "Young is current president" that was going around earlier.
>>26480428duh.jpgStill fun to wildly and baselessly speculate.
>>26480366Like >>26480389 said, Martians knocked out the Nazis pretty quickly, though not before the invasion of Poland. Having to work together against the Martians probably changed things.

>>26480941we were right ALL ALONG! THANK YOU BASE 8BIT AND GHOST!
[x] “Don't dwell on it cap. We heard what happened, you did a hell of a job.”While the captain doesn't exactly engender the easy kind of friendship you've formed elsewhere, you can't not say anything. It isn't in you to just be quiet. “Don't dwell on it, cap.” You say, shrugging. “We heard what happened, you did a hell of a job.” She nods. “I still lost people, Bishop. Nothing can change that. Thanks for your concern.” You don't quite know what to say to that, really. You stand at the table, looking kind of lost, as Georgette sets down dinner. “Sit, sit!” She orders, putting down a basket of rolls. “Nicholas will get the drinks. I hope you drink Milk.” You nod with a smile and take a seat next to Merlin, who, for her part, looks no different than before. Then again, you ask yourself, she wouldn't look different at all, would she? The dinner- roast beef- is excellent, challenging even Rosalie's cooking. You'd almost, almost consider the high heresy of calling it as good as your mother's cooking, but nothing is as good as mom's cooking. Nothing. 1/2
>>26481026Kirk was probably a gnome as well.
>>26481026YESbut >borg witch
So, when Nick asks you what you think, you respond as best you can- “It's the best I've had in a while.” He chuckles at that and nods, agreeing. “She's great with roast like this.” He says, nodding to the platter- half gone by now. “Of course, I think her frog legs are the best.” Georgette giggles at that, and Captain Blackwell makes a noise of disgust. “Papa!” She chides. “Not around guests, please.“Nick, for his part, just laughs. You help to clear the table after dinner, heading back out onto the back patio with everyone. On the way out, you notice a framed newspaper- French- with the headline “Amour Francais, fait en Amerique” and a picture of a one-eyed Nick embracing Georgette while she kisses him. Georgette notices, and smiles a bit. “That was taken in nineteen forty three. It caused quite a stir when Nicholas and I fell in love.”You chuckle. “Aren't all witches like that?” She laughs. “No, no. Not at all. Clostermann kept her relationship quiet, for the most part. But she helped so much during the reconstruction that the papers always had plenty to talk about anyway.”You're outside for an hour or so when the phone rings. “I've got it.” Emile says, getting up to answer it on the fourth ring- right before the answering machine catches it. She pales a bit, then sets the headset back down in it's cradle. “Bishop, Wells. You two get back to your unit. The reds invaded Iceland.”
>>26481052...FUCK. There goes SOSUS.
>>26481052The photo the newspaper ran with.

Again, sorry about missing last week- that dumb mutt meant a lot to me. We'll be back next week, of course, barring unforeseen catastrophes. Till then, I hope you guys enjoyed the run!
>>26481052so wtf is happening with Katya, or is she forever destined to be shoved off screen with no character development or interaction with the MC?

>>26481052Hopefully there will be a meteorologist and a few marines - were they marines? - hiding out on the island to call in enemy numbers & deployments.>>26481090>Again, sorry about missing last week- that dumb mutt meant a lot to me.Nah, man, don't be. A good number of us know that feeling and it is incredibly far from pleasant.
>>26481133frank has yet to get laid. this has to be fixed in a hurry.
>>26481105Isn't it beautiful?>>26481141Good session tonight, Ghost. Time to eagerly wait til next week.
I wonder how much resources the Soviets have that they can keep throwing around all these random offensives. I mean, the bulk of their forces are undoubtedly in Europe, they're siphoning stuff off to the Middle East, and their entire Pacific offensive was basically wiped out to the point where it's mostly China's show now.
>>26481139Probably 6 PM>>26481105Isn't she laid up in the hospital? It's been like one day in-story hasn't it?>>26481152He got his eye back, or is that a glass one?>>26481142>cue Ray monologue>>26481178>Frank has yet to get laidHe's a fighter pilot. If he hasn't been laid yet, then something is amiss with the universe
>>26481169i saw he should be open to a wide spread of kink, but not too extreme. oh man, is gonna be good!
>>26481140>>26481186and fuck you tooalso, Ghost, fuck you too for having her off screen for 14 million threads then only reappear to be sent off screen again
>>26481212He's married to a healwitch. Which do you think?
>>26481105That'd be a pretty lousy way to end things and I'm not even a Katya fan.
>>26481212>It's been like one day in-story hasn't it?yeah, and we were going to pick her up seeing as she could leave 1 day after, but noooo, we can't let her have any screen time no sir
>>26481133Well, currently he seems to be leaning towards Ice, Katya, and maaaaaaaaaybe Slider. You don't see anyone pulling for Mav (which is kinda a shame, given her namesake you'd think she'd play more of a role in things).Gotta say, I don't think it's a good idea for Frank to just pick one in the middle of all this. At least to do so openly. Right now VF-3's gotta keep their heads in the game, and while they ARE military, it's primarily made up of teenaged girls, most of whom are attached to Frank to one extent or another. There's already enough drama as is.
>>26481238Cry more, anon.More importantly, she didn't want to go with Fronk.
>>26481238We went to dinner dude. To assuage the worries of most adorable and definitely not for lewds RIO. That is top priority. I could understand your frustration if we had gone out with Slider or Ice or something.>>26481229I have no idea how extensive witch-healer powers are. I know they can stitch you up right good, but can they regenerate a leg or an eyeball or something?
>>26481264What?I wasn't talking girls dude, I was talking shameful kinks and fetishes
>>264812126pm, what time zone?
>>26481264>maaaaaaaaaybe SliderCome on, it should be better than maaaaaaaaaaaybe>You don't see anyone pulling for MavThis is kinda sad considering that she was supposedly our ladybro at the beginning of the quest. Whether as possible waifu or not, we should hang out with her more...but that'll depend on Russians attack!
>>26481289Well Miyafuji regenerated something like 70% of Youngs liver after it got punched out by martian robot.
>>26481289Yoshika completely regen'd Young's liver, and she was going off of raw power with no technique. An experienced trained healwitch is probably capable of a lot of things, especially considering her saving Frank's life earlier.
>>26481264Well, even if Fronk does pick a girl, don't expect to the waifu fags to let the issue go. Like in VMQ, the MC finally hooked up with a girl 2/3 of the way in, and some people were STILL complaining about how they didn't get the pairing they wanted to the very end.
>>26481296Oh.Well, I think he likes taking an F-14 refueling probe up the ass during sex. Shameful really, seeing as how the F-18 is so much better at everything, forever, but kinks are kinks
>>26481238that's more Ghost avoiding character interaction>>26481289she's one of the older and notable ones so it's not out of the question, though I seriously question the quality of modern heal witches and what they'er doing with them.>>26481316The way I see it it's Katya, Ice/Slider tied. yeah Maverick got ignored badly due to Merlin and Katya, especially the latter. Then came the shark twins.>>26481333Sour Karlafags were sour.
>>26481333Wasn't that more of lamenting what could have been?
>>26481333yeah but that would only be a fair comparison if the two choices were Ice/Katya/Slider VS Stalinka...
>>26481321>>26481330Yea, but at least some of it was still there. IIRC Nick had his eye basically washed out with peroxide didn't he? Like...there's nothing left there. That'd be more...summoning an eyeball from the ether than regenerating one.>>26481353>>26481355To their credit I thought that the Karlafags were pretty decent about the whole "picking Sam" thing after a thread or two. Plus, we saved her in the end like a good knight.
>>26481392I was a Karlafag but once the choice was made, I went with it and accepted it, but here, its like the prospect of making a choice is forever on the horizon but never gets closer
>>26481392He had the socket disinfected with iodine, yeah. But the optic nerve is still there, even after the husk of the eye was surgically removed.Besides, it's magic. Ain't gotta explain shit.
>>26481348You're creeeeeeeeeepily obsessed with NotSanya, bro.>>26481333waifufags gonna waifufag.Way I see it, in terms of pure character interaction, Ice is probably the one. She's the one who's changed the most because of Fronk. She clearly likes him but is trying to be a responsible CO.At the same time, Ice is probably the girl who, even if she doesn't get the man she's in love with, and while it would hurt her for a long time, she'd still cheer him on in the end. It's kinda funny how she thinks Slider is better for Fronk and Slider thinks the opposite. They both deeply care for him.
>>26481446>They both deeply care for him.And each other.
>>26481415I honestly would have been fine with either (guess that's credit to Merc's writing) but I voted for Sam because A) I thought it'd be more in character and B) I don't think I could stand even the thought of devestatedly-sad Sam face>>26481446>It's kinda funny how she thinks Slider is better for Fronk and Slider thinks the opposite. They both deeply care for him.I know right? They also want the best for the other as well. I prefer Slider but...I think I could stomach an Ice "victory"
>>26481446> Ice is probably the girl who, even if she doesn't get the man she's in love withyou say that like fronk won't get all three in his bunk, at the same time
>>26481152>their wedding bands match their eyesShit nigga, that's kawaii.
Hmm, there's isn't a picture of Captain Blackwell right?
>>26481476they need to hurry up and realise they are lesbien for each other
>>26481415indeed and Ghost keeps on throwing battles in the way of meaningful character interaction/development/etc. (so that means the shark twins wasting time don't count)>>26481446Not really, I'm just being in favor of fair play, that and the fact katya has the least development in spite of having the most screen time irks me.And if both Ice and Slider fans unite under one girl, the resulting group would outnumber Katya's legions (not that it's going to be worth much at this rate) Honestly as it is ice and Slider are at a stalemate barring something tipping the scales ala Sam's confession.
>>26481491>>26481494You're going to hafta forcibly hold hands with GhostDiva to get a harem end.>>26481497Huh...you're right. That's cute>>26481509>Ghost keeps on throwing battles in the way of meaningful character interaction/development/etcWar. War never changes
>>26481509>indeed and Ghost keeps on throwing battles in the way of meaningful character interaction/development/etc.he better not leave Katya behind because the reds invaded iceland
>>26481509>And if both Ice and Slider fans unite under one girl, the resulting group would outnumber Katya's legions (not that it's going to be worth much at this rate) Honestly as it is ice and Slider are at a stalemate barring something tipping the scales ala Sam's confession.What it would take would be one of the girls finally deciding to be selfish.
>>26481499Nope. Only thing we have on her is that she looks like Georgette, but younger and with blonde hair that isn't in pigtails.
>>26481528I doubt Fronk (or the voices in his head) would allow that to happen. Even of the ONI spooks want her. I'm not a Katyafag, but that seems a bit off even to me...unless it's her choice
>>26481528>>26481509I just wish he would hurry the fuck up and get Georgette to heal Katya, because otherwise, fronk is going into combat without his wingmate, breaking pretty much rule #1 of dogfighting
>>26481509Fair play? Come on dude, the readers have been making choices that have lead to events. More readers might like choices involving other characters. It's not about 'fair', it's about what people are voting for.Besides, we have NO idea what is going to happen in the future. Chillax.
>>26481564and very much a douchebag move, at that point he may as well railroad fronk and some random hooker together as a couple
>>26481491YES! ignore the other plain options! 4some for the win! i'm completely serious about this. Frank hopefully settle down with one of them and marry her, but the other 2 can at least be content that they got to share him. and maybe sneak way with an illiegitmit child of his! he IS a gnome after all. a witch and a gnome having kids are probably going to bare children of considerable talents and powers.
>>26481566There are other witches.Sounds cruel, but until Katya's 100 percent, she's gonna be outta the game.
>>26481571don't remind me that the Katya fans's mindless devotion more or less resulted in Maverick and Goose getting ignored and whole threads being mostly wasted due to there being NO FUCKING DEVELOPMENT.It's like they only like her because she's an older Sanya that idolizes frank to the point of putting out on demand
>>26481594And katyafags only have themselves to blame.
>>26481613the other witches are not his wingmate, it takes a lot of time and effort for a lead and wingmate to work well together and form a bond, and randomly swapping one out for another because you couldnt be arsed getting a heal witch to make sure your wingmate is in the best possible care is fucktarded and going to get people killed
>>26481594You...seem to forget that it was pretty much OUR actions that broke her leg. If we do have to leave her behind (even if we do, I don't suspect it'll be for long...) it won't be Ghost railroading.
>>26481628>It's like they only like her because she's an older Sanyayou keep bringing this up, and as a Katyafag, i can honestly say, this never enters my thoughts on the matter
>>26481640and it shold be OUR actions that make up for that, its not out of our means to get a heal witch to fix her legyou ignore the fact that she could have fucked up the plane because Stalinka has her grandma hostage
>>26481649Hard to say AS SHE NEVER GETS ANY DEVELOPMENT BEYOND THAT.hard to have new reasons to like someone when they're nigh-static.>>26481634He knew them longer he knows Katya. That and Katya REFUSED the healing treatment.
>>26481064>>26481075>>26481052FUCK YOU TOM CLANCY
>>26481628Well, we're on our way to another major story arc, so we'll see how things shake down. Honestly I think VF-3's been living the most charmed life possible, all things considered. They've ridden the edge for so long, they have to slip eventually. Iceland is likely going to be...hotly contested.I do have a suggestion for Ghost: Write longer story posts. I know the three hundred character limit eats all the dicks now and forever, but I think if you stretched the exposition a bit more, you could alleviate some of the complaints people have had (some, you'll always have people crying over their favorites).
>>26481671Oh look it's conspiracy bullshit covering up the fact they made a stupid choice.
>>26481674I expect Katya's tune to very quickly change if we're getting deployed to Iceland.
>>26481683>actually taking it seriouslyhahahahahaha
>>26481674>Hard to say AS SHE NEVER GETS ANY DEVELOPMENT BEYOND THAT.fucking this, the amount of time she has spent pushed offscreen is getting stupid
>>26481628>because she's an older SanyaThis gave me the funny image of Fronk and Katya about to get intimate when 60-year old MC Young runs into the room, yells "ADORABLE COSSACK NOT FOR LEWDS", smacks Fronk, and runs away. With no explanation>>26481681You think these posts are short, go read GuPQ. God bless BlackJack...the quest is fun, but 1-1.5 hours for 1 post is odd>>26481691You mean refusing the witch-healz?
>>26481717>You mean refusing the witch-healz?Yup.
>>26481717>You mean refusing the witch-healz?I doubt she would keep refusing in the face of the squadron getting deployed against the reds again
>>26481717>You think these posts are short, go read GuPQ. God bless BlackJack...the quest is fun, but 1-1.5 hours for 1 post is oddI heard it's because he plays WoT in between posts. But either way it's one of the main reasons I sort of stopped following that quest.
>>26481717>You think these posts are short, go read GuPQ. God bless BlackJack...the quest is fun, but 1-1.5 hours for 1 post is odd1.98 words per minute for 6-7 hours and all that was achieved was putting on a shirt...
>>26481634The 'other witches' were his wingmates for longer than he's ever known Katya. She's a good fighter, no one is saying otherwise, but everyone in the squadron who was there from the beginning would do anything they could for eachother.Katya's the outsider. A good person and great witch, but stop pretending she's the 'only' option for a wingmate.Shit, they even have a proper steelwing to fly with Fronk. VF-3 can make up a temporary loss.
>>26481743he does, and I started playing my NA account just to kill him when he does
>>26481713That too, all in the name of avoiding character development as we can't have that in SW89. Oh look Russians are attacking yet again.
>>26481776Kill him some more so he can get back to fucking writing.I swear it's going to become a meme here at this rate.
>>26481713>amount of time she has spent pushed offscreenyou mean after all the time we spent with her before this, like taking her on a road trip? She's had quite a bit of screen time...just not as recently. I'd guess that it's somewhat of a backlash against the screentime she had earlier. Waifu wars ho!>>26481743>>26481762I honestly don't mind it. I can't follow PST quests on weekdays (I tried to make an exception for VMQ, but usually couldn't stay for long lest I fell asleep at work), but on the weekends I usually open the quest thread in the background and go about doing other things
Dunno if anyone's around, but I wanted to pop in and just say that TW89 will return this friday, 1500 EST.Should be a good one! :D
>>26481052>“Of course, I think her frog legs are the best.” Georgette giggles at thatEw.>That post about healwitch powers being used so men can keep going and goingEWEWEWEWEWWWWWW
>>26481787*movie announcer voice*"In a WORLD, where 'AVOIDING CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT' means 'I'M NOT GETTING WHAT I WANT', and CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT is COMPLETELY IGNORED simply because YOU are BUTTTERMINATED, ONE ANON will FIND A WAY to BITCH......about ANYTHING."
>>26481808>Gonna be visiting the family this weekendHuzzah, but I'll have to catch this one in the archives
>>26481808ABOUT GOD DAMN TIME!thank you
So if Frank nails Katya, Ice and Slider, who wears the strapon?
>>26481825Wait shit I'll be at work still, woo
>>26481808thank you Base MightyMouse!
>>26481808LIEEESI DON'T BELIEVE YOU ANYMORE MOUSSSSSSE
>>26481837>>26481836>>26481833>>26481827>>26481825Deepest apologies for the delay. The Air Force doesn't really care about you guys. Or me. Just my job.:(
>>26481848Slider.Katya likes people who take charge, Ice is into being restrained
>>26481808Wait, I'm going on a fucking cruise this friday.SONNUVABITCH
>>26481801It's be a face palm inducing thing considering it's not so much screen time but screen time without character development.
>>26481903most cruise ships have internet
>>26481925I don't have a laptop though.And participating using a phone is an incredible pain.
>>26481848no strap ons needed. the girls will be top down, bottom up, side by side in a row for Frank. and if a strap on is needed, remember slider has a nice tail....
>>26481906Character Development does not mean "Fucking The Brains Out Of MC".
>>26481925>On a cruiseCome on anon, let's go do something! We're on a giant boat!NOT NOW I MUST INTERNET
>>26481944I did that in the cabin once but it was raining all week.....I wanted to fish so bad
>>26481943Of couse I know that but Katya didn't expand beyond what we knew at first.
>>26481940>slider has a nice tail...Considering that she's canonically never gone beyond first base...this brings up a lot of questions. Questions that I simultaneously want and do not ever want answeredcaptcha: was ManMareYou did not just fucking insult my pure Slider, captcha
>>26481875you serve my nation bro, any and all delays are forgiven.
>>26481885but Slider already has a strapon, her tail
>>26481885Ice gets tied to bed, Frank rails her, Katya rides her face?
>>26482001>Using such a lovely constricting tool for penetrationSlider/Ice otpOr hell, Slider/time traveling MC Young, I heard he's into erotic asphyxiation
>>26482032>no Slider>Perfectionchoose one and only one
>>26482037so young is a time lord now....god help us all
>>26482037>Time traveling MC Young>Implying Minna didn't follow him througheven if Slider had eyes for anyone but Fronk, she'd hafta fight through a wall of pent-up Teutonic sexual frustration and guilt before getting to him...and if she did: Cupcakeski Scenario, Round II
>>26481993Well, maybe if more people voted to do more things that lead us in that direction, we'd get there. But they haven't. So we're not seeing it. Let it go.
>>26482012Frank rails Ice, fingers Katya and Slider to the left and right of ice......and Merlin watches it all though a crack in the door.
>>26482100People voted for Katya time and one would think Katya time would lead to that. Pardon me for actually wanting to read something resembling a story and not an excuse to have jet battles.
>>26482127You forgot paperwork-chan.
>>26482127while not feeling that japanese boy's attempts to rail her
>>26482138Again: the definition of "story" is not "revolves around the character you like". Grow the fuck up, anon.
>>26482127Merlin was just looking for an extra pen!
>>26482158I don't really care for her I'm just sick of her having no development despite taking up three threads.And for you I bet story is nothing but jet battles.
>>26482127Stack of Ice+ Katya or Ice+ Slider?
>>26482146i guess both of them watch frank,ice,katya,slider get to it. it helps get the two of them worked up and gives them pointers they can learn from. besides, Katya wouldn't mind the viewers....
>>26482138>not an excuse to have jet battles.That is literally the reason for at least half the story. PF started writing SWQ because he was bothered that men and their awesome planes were completely sidelined in "canon" Strike Witches. The story is about the characters, sure, but it is also about their actions. They are military pilots. They fly planes (and magical plane legs) in war. I like SoL, but expecting a story about a fighter pilot in a war to not have jet battles is like expecting Moby Dick to not have whaling
>>26482215And of course during all this Konstantina is lying in Frank's bed, very confused that he's not there
>>26482217PF actually had Minna develop some, otherwise we'd ahve more people trying to shit things up out of spite
>>26482255Sure. I'd argue that Katya has also developed somewhat as a character as well. That doesn't have anything to do with complaining about jet battles in a story about fighter pilots though...
Holy shit, are there bitter Katyafags in here? Time to have fun. Like other people said, there's really no excuse to throw a bitch-fit because your waifu isn't represented every single minute. She was in the previous thread, for crying out loud.Also... Has it ever occurred to the Katyafags that other people, perhaps even the quest writer himself, do not like Katya?
>>26482240She even brought PillowFrank over for a threesome
>>26482187>I'M NOT BUTTMAD THAT KATYA ISN'T 'WINNING', I'M JUST BUTTMAD THAT KATYA ISN'T 'WINNING'! ANTA BAKA ANON-KUN!For what it's worth, I'm following this because I think the character interactions as a whole have been very interesting, in addition to some cool combat sequences. I don't know what more you want, you're one person voting among a horde of people. Go write your perfect fanfic where Katya gets all the character development and fuck off already.
>>26482309>perhaps even the quest writer himselfCHOO CHOO
>>26482309If Ghost didn't like Katya he wouldn't have her worship Fronk so much.Of course it's entirely possible that we shattered her trust when we crashed, but hey
>>26482240she is just waiting to ambush him to rape and/or kidnap. then to NTR the other girls.
>>26482331>m-my views might not be shared by the writer!? RAILROADINGgrow the fuck up
>>26482319>Konstantina>PillowFrankThis is disturbingly adorable>>26482309>perhaps even the quest writer himself, do not like Katya?I don't get that feeling with Ghost. Merc was pretty forthright with his fondness for Sam, but if anything, I'd guess that Merc's favorite is the Shark twins or Mav
>>26482341What if she lewds the other girls while Frank watches, powerless to stop her?
>>26482306care to present cases of that? If you prove a good point, I'll shut up.>>26482340This and he didn't have problems giving her whole threads of screen time. It's not something you do for a dislike character.
>People complain about Katya not having any development>Last thread, Katya has some development with her perfect view of Frank possibly being shattered>STILL BITCHING ABOUT NO DEVELOPMENT, ALONG WITH "SHE DIDN'T APPEAR IN THIS THREAD, BAWW"
>>26482374I don't think she knows how. She'd get them all naked and tied up or something...then confusedly look at Frank for guidance>>26482377>care to present cases of that?Do you mean character development? Honestly these are little things off the top of my head that I doubt will convince you, but here goes. We've learned that Katya:>likes books>likes chess>is worried about her family in mother Russia because she defected>didn't get along with her previous commander>was something of a celebrity in the Russian military because of her family name (this had its ups and downs)>served in Afghanistan and doesn't like to talk about it>Is absolutely terrified of losing Fronk after he went all white knight to save her when she defected>Due to same saving, somewhat idolizes(idolized perhaps?) Fronk as the man who can do no wrong>Last thread either reconsideration of Fronk-idolization or reconsideration of relationship with Fronk (we don't know yet)Those are off the top of my head, and some of them might be OOC knowledge gifted to us by Ghost, I can't recall
>>26482475Valkyrian Mercs Quest. Finished up a week or two ago. Fantastically written, I'd recommend you read it in the archives...ended up being like ~50 threads iirc
>>26482479Those are all valid points. I'm not the person you're trying to convince, mind you. I agree that those are all evident of character development, but I highly doubt that some of the people here will agree.It's funny, honestly. All the fighting and whining probably does way more to hurt Ghost's sympathies towards waifu'ing than help it.
>>26482479Mmmm touche, though it seems undernoted compared to Ice's gun mania
>>26482360>I don't get that feeling with Ghost. Merc was pretty forthright with his fondness for Sam, but if anything, I'd guess that Merc's favorite is the Shark twins or MavYou, good sir, know nothing of my tastes. NOOOOOOOOTTTTHHHHIIIIINNNNNNGGG.It's a tie between Katya and Slider
>>26482568Why not Ice, good sir?(Honestly just curious)
>>26482479*Katya attempting to obtain American porno for research. Smut store peddler VERY CONFUSED by Russian accent*
>>26482595Ice is a close second to them. She just feels too much like a team mom to me to put her at the front of the pairing list.
At this point, I'll just vote against interacting with Katya on general principal, simply because I know it's going to make a certain subset of people irrationally angry every time they don't get exactly what they want.If the choice is Goose or Katya, Goose every time. Slider or Katya? Fuckin PLEASE, Slider forever. Katya and Ice? Ice melts, and Katya can burn.As long as the people whining about Katya just GO. THE FUCK. AWAY.
>>26482542Well, loving books is a much quieter hobby than cackling over OPERATORTIER weaponry>>26482568>Merc's favoritesOh shit. I totally meant Ghost's favorites. I guess my brain assumed that because I was posting in a quest thread at 2 in the goddamn morning that it had to be VMQ. Still a bit sad that the ride is over>>26482598This fabulous man right here(>>26482568) wrote VMQ. Fun times
>>26482568We gonna see a new quest from you anytime soon?
>>26482622now you know how I feel about Sam...
>>26482629glad to see that the quest will suffer because you are petty
>>26482645Planning a pseudo-sequel to VMQ in a month or two. Probably planning to put up a SW89 spinoff oneshot in the meantime as well.
>>26482629I think it'll calm down though I could be wrong. I'm personally aiming for getting more Maverick and Goose time, hopefully without the shark twins getting in the way.
>>26482568Oh right, and since you're here Ghost, I might as well tell you I'm thinking up writing yet another sheet.IT'S A FUCKING DISEASE AND IT NEVER STOPS.
>>26482651I'm sorry for this pic anon. I had to
>>26482666>why can't you like what i like?Tell that to the half dozen other people who go ape-shit every time something doesn't go their way, bub.
>>26482629Calm down, all you're doing here is coming off as butthurt and petty.
>>26482666>THE QUEST WILL SUFFER IF MY LOVELY FICTIONAL NOTSANYA DOES NOT GET MORE ATTENTION THAN EVERYONE FOREVEReaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit
>>26482651oooh, sour sour
>>26482677>Oh right, and since you're here GhostAre you >>26482639 who's getting our names confused?
>>26482683I'm not a katyafag, but the kind of action you support, is just being an asshole, and using the excuse of "oh well others do it so I must" makes you even more of an asshole and makes the problem worse
>>26482677>Ghost>MercI made the same mistake as wellMerc x GhostDiva fic when
>>26482709Nope, but I'm guilty all the same.
>>26482709No, he's someone else who made the same mistake. I am Spartacus
>>26482692lol, not even a katyafag, just realising that the attitude he displayed would get people killed and hurt, like doing the kitty hawk deliberately just to spite certain individuals...
>>26482738Kitty Hawk was gonna die anyway~Whether or not Frank believes it, he's not actually the one thing that determines an entire battle every time. He's part of something much larger. Sometimes, shit happens. He'll have to accept that eventually.
>>26482801Yeah seriously.>2 anti-ship missiles>3 targets>takes both missiles to down the primary targetYou can argue leaving the rest of our flight to the dogs, but there was only so much we could do to the big guys. war is hell
>>26482801wasnt my point, my point was if there were only 2 options, the first, involved interacting with Katya in some way, the second, was cracking the planet in half, that faggot would vote for the second to spite everyone else
>>26482801Thank you! We made the best choice we could. We had two ship-killers, and it was rather clear that those dreads were more heavily armored than the carrier. Remove the threat you can actually affect.
>>26482801You think Frank's having a tough time coming to grips with that? Just wait til the undetermined moment in the future when fuckin' MC Young has to come to grips with it. The first time audacity and/or gnoming fail to save someone or something dear to him the dude's gonna go catatonic.
>>26482801That sounds like railroading though it's more bs to cover the fact they choose poorly.>>26482823Wasn't that due to one of the missiles being off target?>>26482837I doubt it'd happen, it's not how SWQ works.
>>26482862>one of the missiles being off target?IIRC they were both fantastically on-target. Just not enough hitting power>it's not how SWQ worksYes, shenanigans are all well and good, but I wouldn't put it past PF to have us lose a secondary witch or a gnome or a large ship under our care. Remember how poorly Young reacted when his little sister showed up to war? Yea, imagine if he watched a witch go down in flames...he would become alcohol
>>26482862The first one hit an engine block, wasn't enough to take it down.
>>26482862Having events occur in a story is not railroading you titanic moron.Fronk and Merlin are not the perfect team. They can't win the war alone, and they can't even win battles alone. Alaska should have proven that to you, but you're still insisting on bring that shit up every time you feel your favorite character isn't getting screen time, you use it to cry 'OMG RAILROADING'.
>>26482862>Wasn't that due to one of the missiles being off target?Both were direct hits.>I doubt it'd happen, it's not how SWQ works.Yea no, this is SWQ 89, where we see OPFOR witches losing legs and the MC purposely targeting cockpits on occasion.
>>26482907Besides the missiles, the matter that we didn't clean up the other things allowing others to help would have affected things if not for some anon thinking in vidya terms that all they had to do is take out the main target and everything would be alright.SWQ has a general vibe of fuck yeah! leaving the more serious stuff to the other stories/quests. If SWQ was going to serious up, it'd have done so long ago, and doing so in the future it come off as a certain cool guy jumping over some sharks.>>26482910It did slow it down though which could have brought time for other things.>>26482929By the way you're presenting it there was nothing to do to save the ship not matter what we choose, so in a way that's a railroaded event.Not that it matters as it's just a game to you.And the character stuff? way to grasp at the strawman. People like you are why SWQ-universe stuff are hated.
>>26482985Eh the one shark twin is missing a leg more due to someone's amputee fetish than real drama as it's never brought up for dramatic things.And I said it'd never happen in SWQ to answer the question of the chance of it happening in SWQ proper ,not here where it's a bastard mix of bleach (tons of characters), bad 80's action movies about killing commies, and air combat.
>>26482990>SWQ has a general vibe of fuck yeah! leaving the more serious stuff to the other stories/quests.Were you not around when MC got robo-stabbed? Or when Sanya almost brained Minna because of Martian mind-beams? Or when we legit pointed a gun at our superior officers? Or when Robin showed up? Shit used to be serious...and I'm not confident that PF won't ever turn it back that way, given the opportunity.>>26483041He's talking about the dogfight where we basically buzzsawed off a Russkie witch's leg with the machinegun and watched her plummet into the Bering strait.
>>26482990Sometimes in life there is NOTHING YOU CAN DO. You're making assumptions based on nothing other than the fact that you are buttmad that you are not getting your way in a game where multiple people are involved.You're pretending that you know FOR CERTAIN that the Kitty Hawk could have been saved. Are you fucking clairvoyant? You can't know these things. It's not possible to know.What if we saved the Hawk, but in the process Katya was killed while protecting us from the Soviet fleet? Or Ice? Or Slider? Or anyone, really? What if we got a bad end and we were killed along with Merlin?Your entire argument is "B-B-BUT OTHER PEOPLE VOTED AGAINST ME! THEY WERE WRONG! MY DREAM SCENARIO SAYS WE COULD HAVE WON FOR SURE!"People like you might hate people like me in a SWQ thread, but everyone else hates /tg/ because of people like you.
>>26483041>someone's amputee fetish than real dramaits a fucking great way to introduce a witch flown steelwing, adds backstory and a sense of believability to the characters and makes them interestingall without being fetishy
>>26483087Technically that was Katya. We set her up for the shot, and she shot that Russkie witch's leg off....By the way, we've seen that witch again, but we decided to muck around in the pool instead of investigating.
>>26483119I'm curious to hear the story behind them going through flight training on steelwings. We need tot talk to them in a non-prankwar context
>>26483041Problems with your post aside,are you implying Ghost has an Amputee fetish?Hue
>>26483152>...By the way, we've seen that witch again, but we decided to muck around in the pool instead of investigating.uhh, i didn't think that witch got rescued
>>26483152Wait, that witch by the pool REALLY was that ruskie witch?
>>26482990>>26483112At the end of all things, this is a story on the internet about magical girls that fly plane legs. I can understand being somewhat frustrated with each other, and I really should be inured to this by now, but ya'll could probably both afford to turn it down a couple notches>>26483152I thought that was an unrelated American witch without a leg? Huh
>>26483198I never got that impression, which was why i didnt vote to investigate itnow i sads
>>26483198Why was she by the damn pool and not in a holding cell?
>>26483184>>26483198Whoa, WHAT. This I did not know!
>>26483194magical girl child soldiers, mind.I agree that there's a balance to be struck between fun and grimderp, and I think that's been done so far
>>26483198>Cue anon frantically talking to every female amputee on baseGhost set himself up for one hell of a trollercoaster>>26483217It's not even a balance between fun and grimderp. I think SW89 has done that fantastically, and SWQ did it well for the first 1/2-3/4 of the quest. I was just talking about how buttmad two anons were over their differing interpretations of a story written online
>>26483254Meh, I dunno about that. You wouldn't have known it was her if not for me. YOU'RE WELCOME, GOOD BUDDY.
>>26483254>Cue anon frantically talking to every female amputee on baseThis actually puts my prospective SW quest into question...
>>26483254Though speaking of grimdark, an attended IED would really fuck up a tank witch's day.>Be inna iraq>Come under small arms fire, put up shield>Pipe bomb beneath you detonates and shreds through your torse
>>26483287>You wouldn't have known it was her if not for me. YOU'RE WELCOME, GOOD BUDDY.I just tend to assume that you guys are working the one-two punch angle
>>26483301HOVER TANKS MANNED BY GNOME/WITCH CREWS, PROBLEM SOLVEDhope i didnt just spoil TW89's return
>>26483312not really. I'm going to skin him with an axe, now.
>>26483362I did this for all of you, '89 crowd. REMEMBER ME.
>>26483383It's not that I mind- You'd have gotten to talk to her a bit, and her marine savior, but it's not like they were gonna be major characters.
>>26483362Well since it has already come to this, could you say the rational why she wasn't in a holding cell? Even for her own protection? There most have been alot of servicemen who lost friends onboard the kittyhawk.
>>26483362>>26483398WELP if Ghost already has plans for that russkie which it looks like I'll have to come up with something else for that SW quest I was thinking of.
>>26483409well they are now, seeing as we know about it and shall wage a crusade to find her, though it will be funny when we comb the base to find her, finally meet her and go "uhh hi, I helped blow your leg off"
>>26483416Do the other ruskie witch.The one who surrendered in the face of 3 tank barrels after seeing her comrade get the mozambique drill.
>>26483416you need to get into the swq IRC with Ghost
>>26483411Just been released into the protective custody of the academy there in San Deigo. You didn't see her witch minder because you didn't talk to her.
>>26483437Which was why I was sort of asking about it when the thread began. I didn't actually know she showed up again 10 threads ago.
>>26483409>>26483416I don't think I have a reaction image for how bafflingly amused this makes me
>>26483436God, that battle was such a great bit of writing. Can't wait for more tonks on friday
