It is the year 22XX and Humanity has reached the stars. Alas, even though they have attained the lofty goal of interstellar travel, mankind has yet to conquer it’s baser instincts.Humanity is ruled by ultra-Corporations. Some own continents. Some own multiple worlds. But no matter who you are, everyone is a citizen-employee somewhere. The qualms that beset corporations of the past, copyright infringement, tech theft, still exist. If anything, they are amplified by the scale of the players.Without government to turn to for legal recourse and separated by millions and billions of miles, corporations have turned to less savory solutions to resolve disputes. You are one of those solutions.You are an elite mercenary, also known as a High Impact Public Representative, of the StrikeOut Company, a group of mercenaries who accept contracts and missions from the highest bidder. You are launched out of a spaceship in a drop pod filled with bright orange and highly toxic gel. You crash land into the target’s facilities, make a mess, do your job, and then get the hell out.You are a Fall Guy. You are a Deniable Asset.QM’s Twitter:https://twitter.com/DickishDeadDAQ Master Pastebin with archive links, pastebins, and other miscellania:http://pastebin.com/nNU28gEA
“Yeah. I’ve reached a decision. Listen you three. I’ll second you into StrikeOut-”The rest of your words are cut off by squeals of excitement and/or terror from all three girls. Slightly concerned about what you’re getting them into you raise your hand for silence. All three comply. “Alright. Like I was saying, I’ll second all three of your applications to StrikeOut’s basic training program. If you can hack it through that, you have the capability to be a real merc. If you can’t handle it, you’ll wash out faster than you can blink. They don’t force anyone out. People will just leave.”Miyuki looks nervous, Chisaki excited, and Hikaru determined at your words. All three nod. “That said, I’m really pleased to see that you’ve got the guts to ask for this. You’ll be trained under the best instructors in Human Space. Shit, I might even volunteer to do a CQC course for you guys.”You pause for a moment and reconsider. “Actually you know what? I will do a CQC course for you guys, since you were brave enough to ask nicely.”There’s a moments pause before all three girls cheer again. You’re pleased to see them so happy when suddenly you notice two very large things headed in your direction. Before you can say anything Miyuki has you quite literally smothered in a fierce bear hug. She holds you in place for nearly a minute before releasing your head. You inhale deeply desperate for air. Miyuki looks confused for a few seconds before blushing scarlet and bowing before you. “I… I…”>What do you say, Ivan?>”It’s alright, I’m fine.” [reassuring]>”Welp, at least now we’ve figured out your signature attack.” [teasing]>”Try to not do that again.” [aloof]>write in

>>30946393>”Welp, at least now we’ve figured out your signature attack.” [teasing]"And your face is going the colour of your hair."
>>30946393I should probably mention that you'll have to pay back Strikeout for everything if you pass.
>>30946393>”It’s alright, I’m fine.” [reassuring]act slightly surprised and apologize if we hurt them in the fight, Miyuki about the excuation
>>30946393>>”It’s alright, I’m fine.” [reassuring]"Actually, you three, I've got some questions for all of you.""Miyuki, you were using a LMG in the show, but I got the feeling that you were somewhat unfamiliar with it. Is that your preferred loadout, or was that suggested to you?""Hikaru, you were the only one who, well, survived. You could still have a career in SpaceHeart*Love. Why exactly are you following your friends to StrikeOut?""And how exactly did you three join up together as a team?"
Good write ins anons. Writing.
>>30946393>>”It’s alright, I’m fine.” [reassuring]>>30946555Good questions. Let's ask them.
>>30946393>Suddenly TITSI am ok with this.Oh, and drawing of Ivan too I guess. No tits, sadly. Animooted, because why not.Probably going to call it a night. Thanks for the thread Fall Guy. I will catch the rest in the archive.
>>30946393”Welp, at least now we’ve figured out your signature attack.” [teasing]Did we ever get that JohnxVix slashfic some guy way talking about a few threads back?
>>30946656>THE TAT MOVESHOLY SHIT THAT'S AMAZING
>>30946656D-D-Drawfag-sama I...HOLY SHIT DUDE THAT'S FUCKING INCREDIBLE
>>30946656Goddamn that's fucking awesome!
>>30946656God damn Drawfags making me feel like an inferior shit. Dammit that is amazing
>>30946656Seeing as how we needed to get artificial facial hair, I assumed Ivan to be clean-shaven. Awesome work though.
>>30946505>My only regret is that we didn't nab Airwa as well.Who knows, if the three girls do well in StrikeOut's basic training, word might filter back that Ivan took them under his wing and is making them into real mercs.If she gets tired of the idol thing, she might very well reach out to us at some point and ask for the very same favor.At this rate, Ivan might end up becoming a regular StrikeOut recruiter in the long run...
>>30946656Hot damn that's amazing.On another note, Nickname Suggestion: "Rasputin"Russian and hard to kill.Also, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiSdTQ9DW9g
>>30946726I thought so toobut looking at that ridiculously awesome piece of draw faggotry I find my mind has changed
>>30946656The only thing you missed was a gleam in his ceramic teeth.Other then that, goddamn, anon!
>>30946656holy shithave some cats anon
>>30946656Wow, his face. He's beautiful.
>>30946656Ivan is mah husbando.
>>30946656Dude, that's absolutely amazing! The level of detail, the moving tattoo, the subtle axe in Ivan's name! Just excellent man!
>>30946656My headcanon was that he was cleanshaven, but otherwise it's perfect.
Alright guys, sorry about the delay. I was just trying to recover from that glorious creation based drawfag blessed us with. Am writing.
>>30946940Feel free to recover for as long as you need. I'm still kinda tipsy myself.
>>30946940I think I can speak for all of us when I say that's totally understandable. That thing is freaking mind blowing.
>>30946393Gentlemen, we have found a way to incapacitate someone without the use of stun guns or bean bags.

I will try to get one of Ivan and Simge in costume done at some point in the near-ish future. Probably not animated though.As for the beard, I always assumed Ivan was only clean shaven when convenient. Otherwise he was honoring his heritage from the motherland. Plus I didn't like how the face looked without it. But since it is like 1 layer, here is what he looks like without it. Don't say I didn't warn you. Now I must slumber for real.
>>30947126You fucking bastard. The only problem people had with it...and you had a solution. You are a truly based drawfag
>>30947025>Gentlemen, we have found a way to incapacitate someone without the use of stun guns or bean bags.Indeed, because fun bags are just as efficient!
>>30947247Their only downside is that they only work on a significant percentage of the male population, as well as a noticeable female minority.
>>30946393"Hey Val, reminds me of the other night!"
>>30947126Yep, that's now my head-canon for Ivan. Great work Anon.
>>30947126Anybody else thinks he looks like Harry Dresden?
You inhale deeply once more, your lungs luxuriating in the flow of oxygen. “Welp, at least we’ve managed to figure out your signature attack.”Miyuki’s face only grows more scarlet, which prompts a bit more teasing from you. “And now your face is going the color of your hair.”Miyuki makes some sort of “eep” sound, which only triggers an outburst of friendly laughter from you. You pat her on the shoulder. “Hey now, I was only teasing. I’ve got a more serious question for you though. The LMG… Something tells me that you weren’t the one who made that particular weaponry decision?”Miyuki shakes her head, hair bouncing from side to side. Something else bounces from side to side too, but you decide that it would be crass to pay too much heed to that. “No, a producer suggested it to me. Something about maximizing appeal.”“I figured as much,” you mutter. “So is there any other sort of gun you’re more comfortable with?”Miyuki frowns. “Not really. I guess the ones with high recoil make certain... parts of me more sore.”“Well, I’m sure you’ll find a more comfortable weapon during basic that addressed your particular problem,” you say smiling reassuringly.Miyuki nods and blushes slightly, looking down at the ground. Just then a question occurs to you and you call out to Hikaru. The bespectacled merc hurries up to you, pushing her glasses back into place. “Hey Hikaru,” you say voice light and curious, “I gotta ask. I thought you made it to the next season of SpaceHeart*Love. A future as a merc-idol. But you seem to be the one leading your friends to StrikeOut.”“Why would I do that you ask?” replies Hikaru as she adjusts her glasses. “Simple. They are my friends. I will not leave them behind like that. We will succeed together or fail together.”

>>30947575>>That’s good. Good attitude to have when you’re in the shit together
>>30947575>That’s good. Good attitude to have when you’re in the shit togetherEverything I've seen from Ivan indicates that he's pretty idealistic. He would approve of that.
>>30947575>>That’s good. Good attitude to have when you’re in the shit together>>Just be careful. Friendship doesn’t protect against bullets. Or mutant cannibal teeth.I reckon both, actually. Say it's a good thing, but have their wits about them regardless.First we need to issue Thundertits with a proper bra. Then maybe some form of handgun.
>>30947562>>That’s good. Good attitude to have when you’re in the shit together.Remember, though. Being a leader means being the one who keeps everyone copacetic, regardless of the situation. Keep it in mind, OK?
>>30947575>That’s good. Good attitude to have when you’re in the shit together>>30947658I'm pretty sure she can at least handle a submachine gun.
>>30947575>>That’s good. Good attitude to have when you’re in the shit together"Good. Make sure you remember that, it will make all the difference when push comes to shove.""By the way, I wanted to apologize about the execution shot with my revolver. It made for great theater, but it probably hurt a lot at close range, and for that, I'm really sorry."
>>30947126Well, I think we've figured out Ivan's strikeout nickname."Bishi"
>>30947575>That's good. Good attitude to have when you're in the shit together.However, sometimes you have to neutralize the threat before you help your friends. It's not always an easy choice.
>>30947575>That's a good attitude to have when you're in the shit together. But be warned, at least until you're seasoned you probably won't be dropping together.
Holy shit - its a two parter!Yes!I just got back from work, and holy shit there's a second thread :#
Now all that is left is to take them under our wing, and treat them as our kin.All according to plan.
I still want Ariwa...:(
>>30947741Well, for being such a pretty boy, AND starring in a japanese idol-show, i'm 99% certain we're gonna get pegged as a real-life bishounen as soon as the parapzzi catches up to me.Also we can pretty much be guaranteed that our friends will be streaming our season finale fights back at the base.First dreads, now idols.>>30946761>Russian and hard to kill.As far as songs go, I'd put this one forth.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmISCeqtJvwits german, but damn if panzer-man doesn't have a nice ring to it.
>>30947658>First we need to issue Thundertits with a proper bra. Then maybe some form of handgun.Handgun might be good, perhaps a medium caliber.Maybe she might do good with a grenade launcher, something similar to a M79? Single shot, and she could carry several types of grenade.I would stay away from anything that fires rapidly, probably not a whole lot of fun for her, bra or not.
>>30947794Why not the austin powers treatment?
>>30947779>I still want Ariwa...It's evil, but we could always NTR/frustrate Niels and get more friendly with Tsukino, who is basically her but even more sneaky and deadly.
>>30947817>Recoil into boobsEven knowing its a joke I can't help but wince after the conversation we had with her.
>>30947817Hah! Well, we could even turn her into Aphrodite A, but that would ruin a great bust.Maybe she could carry a rocket launcher that is shoulder-fired instead, that way the recoil isn't thumping against anything sensitive.
>>30947893A minigun might also be a good option. Flamethrowers as well.
>>30947794SMGs and basic ARs would be fine low recoil weapons, in the kind of enemies SO employees face, a good handgun like our Model 223 would send Thundertits' tits to the moonGet her a pair of good SMG's to use or alternate with and she'll be set
>>30947794>>30947893Launchers and recoil-less rifles are something to consider for her.>>30947967A flamer could do as well, but man portable heavy weapons like a minigun won't work well without either supporting armature and light exoskeleton or heavy augmentation. Bullets are heavy and the expense of carrying enough to feed such a high R.O.F. weapon isn't really justifiable at the rookie level.
>>30947967>A minigun might also be a good option.The whirring/vibrating of the minigun might get uncomfortable for her, so I'm not sure that's ideal. I figure anything with a high rate of fire will make her sweater puppies sore after awhile.Flamethrower might be interesting, although I would venture that it's best for someone who likes close up fights and is at least somewhat crazy (aka PURGE THE HERETIC)She might look impressive as a Battle Sister, but I dunno.
>>30948050>light exoskeleton or heavy augmentation.Actually, I was thinking that myself.Anyway, if recoil is an issue: Laser weapons.Good ol Proton Pack and a big ass lasergun.Dem lightweight plastics, dat lack of recoil.
>>30948050>>30948059protipFlamethrowers are pieces of shit outside of anything not deliberately trying to be entertaining, like real combat and not reality TV
>>30948072>Laser weapons.Read: ExpensiveNot exactly good for a rookie.
“That’s good. Good attitude to have when you’re in the shit together.”Hikaru smiles, apparently pleased at your praise. “Thank you sempai,” she replies, smiling. “I believe that a true leader must always be ready to support his or her comrades.”You smile back at Hikaru. Girl shares a lot of your ideals about merc work. “That’s excellent to hear. Just remember you won’t be a squad leader for a long time. I’m certainly not one yet.”“You aren’t?” Hikaru asks, looking puzzled. “I believed that you were somewhere in your fifties. I thought the rookie comment you made earlier was an exaggeration.”“What? No way. I’m not even thirty years old yet. Still a baby.”Hikaru looks surprised. “Well I uh, I’m only twenty three, I didn’t think we’d be so close to each other.”“Yeah,” you say, eyebrow rising. “Yeah, no. No I’m still just a rookie. This is what, like my fourth mission? On top of a few years as a combat techie? Seriously, I’m not really anything special.”Hikaru gasps. “So this is the difference that proper training can make… incredible.”At that point Choi Lei swoops in, suavely offering to give Hikaru some advice from a more experienced mercenary. As the bespectacled former idol wanders off with your megane-loving comrade you scan the dance hall once more, taking a sip from your bottle. Simge and the delinquent leader seem to have gone missing. You’re slightly surprised. He was decent looking, but you figure Simge could do better. You’re feeling a bit tired, but you probably have enough energy for one final bit of interaction before you get back into the limo and abscond with those bottles of champagne.>What do you do?>Scene with Valkyrie, choose a topic>Scene with Chisaki, choose a topic>Scene with Miyuki, choose a topic>Some fourth thing.

>>30948152OOH, I like. Seconding.
>>30948174Eh, still that is coming up on 50 years of being out of service
>>30948152>Ask Chisaki or Miyuki about the Himawari Force
>>30948160>>30948166We can do that when they get to the merc base, though.We got short-changed on our last scene with the valkyrie, and I'd rather use this scene while we're out of the raft to do something that's NOT hate-sex (since it seems to be tiring for merc to write, and this is interesting too).>>30948112I like this one

>>30948092>Scene with Chisaki, choose a topicWe've talked with the other two girls, let's at least try to get to know a bit about her. Ask her why she decided to do the Merc Idol thing.
>>30948184>Eh, still that is coming up on 50 years of being out of servicePair the idea with futuretech, however, and you have the makings of funtimes.Weaponsmakers often go back to older weapon ideas and improve on them. It's like how they turned the old gatling into modern-day equivalents that are very much relevant.
>>30948152Going with this.
>>30948190>Dancing.Mah broski! Exactly what I was thinking.>>30948092>>Scene with Valkyrie, choose a topic... make sure to grab a merc idol costume from the gift shop on the way out, too!I suspect this is gonna end with her giving us a surprise gift too.Its gonna be something stupid, like a giant moustache, or a bottle of lube.

>>30948125I support this as well>>30948092
>>30948245Do it anyway!Fuck it, merc, do the dance thing at the beginning of next thread, no matter what else gets voted on.Last val scene was short! Give us a break here!
>>30948186Did you miss the part where they were going to get Basic Training?Those tend to go on for looong times.
>>30948152She's the only character here that we haven't had any significant interaction with yet.
Seems like a thin majority of anons would like to hear the origin story of the Himawari force from Chisaki.Dancing will wait for another day. When I'm less tired.
>>30948152>>30948178>>30948185I'd like to hear that bit of backstory. Besides, Val can get us to do the Naked Mattress Mambo in a FTB.
Rolled 9, 3, 6 = 18>>30948246oh yeah.dance modo time.
>>30948092>Scene with Valkyrie, choose a topic"Well Val, I know the mission wasn't enough of a challenge for you, but we did get some excellent loot out of it."Have a conversation that slowly devolves into constantly escalating innuendo.Find out what her drink of choice is then, if we can't hit the dance floor, abscond with her at the appropriate time.
>>30948186Chisaki's the only character we haven't interacting with in a significant fashion, and it isn't like we haven't already have a lot of interaction with Valkyrie anyway.
Rolled 6, 4, 9 = 19>>30948290>Besides, Val can get us to do the Naked Mattress Mambo in a FTB.Thats kind of the point.I'd rather do something besides "the usual", since we have a chance here, and I'd rather not squander the opportunity.We can talk with the Himawari Chicks on the flight back to the base easy peasy.>>30948299Tooo laaate anon. Merc, remember this one for next time, please - its a good suggestion.
>>30948092>>Scene with Chisaki, choose a topic
>>30948275I will accept this only if we get distracted by Val absentmindedly groping a near helpless Miyuki.
>>30948325Fall Guy and Merc Command are two separate QMs. Fall Guy ran a quest before this one, called Obnoxious Ghost Quest under the trip SpiritGuided.That's the same name as his IRC handle if ever you're in the hugbox.
Rolled 5, 6, 5 = 16>>30948306The point isn't the amount of interaction, tho - its the quality.Also, if you're that dead set on the anime waifu, dance with her (she's an idol, she can pull sweet moves), just to make val jealous, before swapping partners to her.Accomplishes both things, also potential for much amusement comrade
>>30948217Chem throwers, hosing things down with chlorine triflouride. Technically still a flame thrower.
>>30948365Derp. I got confused. LULZwhat's the hugbox?
>>30948393The IRC channel a lot of QMs lurk in. It used to be linked in QTG.
>>30948370Val would kidnap Miyuki for the night as soon as we left the table.
>>30948412I got linked to one for AI quest on rizon Fuck it, I got irc tho. Link me? Suptg is kind of a cesspool at times.
>>30948365Considering the subject matter at hand I'm not surprised he got QMs confused.

You decide to get acquainted with the last member of your recent recommendations, and wander over to Chisaki, who is determinedly pounding down as much of the free alcohol as she can lay her hands on. You like the cut of her jib. You flag her down before she leaves on yet another booze run.Chisaki turns around to face you, the pink of drunkenness suffusing her features. “What’s up boss?”“Nothing much Chisaki. Was wondering if you had time to jaw.”Chisaki grins. “I got plenty of time to jaw with a guy like you. What about?”You begin to lead the way back to the bar. “Just curious. Was wondering how the Himawari Force was assembled.”“Huh. Pretty cool story I guess,” Chisaki replies as you both take a seat at the bar. “We didn’t sign up together you know? We all applied separately to be merc-idols and stuff.”“So people can apply in teams?”“Oh yeah,” confirms Chisaki, slurring slightly, “Most do in fact. We were a bunch of morons for not doing so in the first place to be honest. Really hurts your chances otherwise.”“I guess you guys teamed up pretty quick then?”Chisaki takes a long drag from yet another beer. “Yeah. It was the first school festival they called them. People could register in teams or they could be randomly matched up. I was the one who started it all up actually,” Chisaki points to her chest proudly. “Everyone thinks it was Hikaru, but they’re wrong, it was me.”
“Oh?”“Yeah. I was the one who first suggested the idea to Hikaru. She’s too proud to admit she needs help most of the time, and Miyuki’s too damned shy to ask for it. So I had to be the one who started it all. Hikaru could do the long shot competition, I could do the obstacle course, and Miyuki could do the public appeal portion. We were a perfect team.”You snort. “I can see the logic behind putting Miyuki up as public appeal.”Chisaki pouts. “Yeah I guess. Seems all guys are about are huge breasts though.”“Hey that’s not true,” you protest somewhat guiltily. “Asses are pretty great too!”Chisaki beams at you. Rather she beams at an area of space a few inches to the left of your head. “Thanks Ivan… You’re a nice guy, you know that? I didn’t think we had a snowball’s chance in hell when Hikaru said we should ask the guy who beat us for a recommendation.”>Anything Ivan wants to say?
>>30948754YessirWill also react violently with wet sand, CO2, and basically anything else that isn't a thick slab of metal.In case of spill or leak, run the fuck away and come back much later. Not a good thing to carry around where people might be shooting at you.
>>30948754Not melt concrete undergo combustion with concrete, and yes a combustion product is hydrofluoric acid; a contact poison which is absorbed through the skin and reacts with calcium in your bones and your blood.Those test engineers I mentioned, lets just say things didn't go so well for them.
>>30948810Has Val already left with the remaining third of our loot and if so do we know her room number?This will define how I answer your prompt.
>>30948837I remember a report about that shit from a accredited industrial chemist included a recommendation that, when dealing with a spill of that stuff, he suggested a good pair of running shoes.
>>30948865oh damn I forgot to address that!yes.
>>30948810"Sure, anytime. Wanna drinking competition?"
>>30948902Well, considering all the alcohol around...Why not?

Rolled 7, 10, 5 = 22>>30948929
Rolled 8, 5, 2 = 15>>30948929
Rolled 6, 3, 10 = 19>>30948929Glue glug
>>30948895Ah well, no fun times with Valkyrie this trip.I suppose my vote is to mingle, fail to find an interesting hook up (or succeed) and head back to our room after more drink and fun.
Rolled 5, 8, 2 = 15>>30948929oofhopefully not as bad as her
Rolled 1, 4, 5 = 10>>30948827Minor nitpick metal containers do not burn because they come pretreated with a fluoride coating preventing any reaction from occurring. If the layer is scratched it will burn like almost everything.
>>30948929Wow she rolled terribly.Goddamn.
Rolled 8, 1, 7 = 16>>30948929You can't do subtraction on /tg/ dice btw.
>>30948810Hey, no problem. I've learned long ago that being a dick just means you end up being a dick and nothing other then that.Also, tell Miyuki to stick with OMPs and assault rifles for low recoil guns. And that I'm sorry for the execution shot. Shit looked like it hurt.
>>30948929I almost want to get Miyuki to join.Anyway, looks like someone is a thousand years too young to take us on in a drinking contest.
Rolled 8, 5, 5 = 18>>30948929That poor girl.
>>30948954Well shit, time to stop rolling for me.
Rolled 20 - 3>>30948959Yeh you can
>>30948959Which is surprising, I thought I saw an anon do it at some point. Regardless, your victory was assured.Writing last update of the night. No thread tomorrow/today. Need to recuperate.
>>30948962Holy shit I completely forgot about that execution shot.Yeah, apologise to Miyuki if we can.
>>30948968Miyuki left with Val. See >>30948895.
>>30948984Gotta do dice+3d10+-4
>>30949005indeed, seems to be so. For future reference!
>>30948984Wait, she rolled a 2? We have to get her to a hospital for alcohol poisoning? That's...actually a fairly fitting end to this.
Rolled 9, 7, 5 = 21>>30948978>>30949005Still doesn't show a proper result for after the subtraction so it's the same as if you weren't adding a negative.
>>30948984And the tradition of quest MCs completely dominating NPCs in drinking competitions continues.
“Yeah well,” you say, looking back at the bar, “You’re not quite in just yet. There’s just one last thing I need you in particular to do.”Chisaki gives you a look that conveys a strange mix of suspicion and excitement. “What?”“Drinking contest.”The two of you knock shot glasses together and down the first shot in tandem. Chisaki wobbles and immediately faceplants into the Bar. You wince and pull her upright. Poor girl seems to have fallen completely asleep. You help carry her out of the bar and wait with her outside in the cold night air while a medi-HOEV arrives, carrying her away to make sure nothing worse than a punishing hangover befalls the girl. The urge to party completely driven out of you by the necessity of caring for another drunk, you flag down your limo and order him to take you back to the hotel suite that Love Wetworks Limited put the four of you up in. Taking care to abscond with all five bottle of champagne hidden in the mini-fridge you return to your suite, where you collapse on your bed, quite tired. You send in a special order for two idol uniforms to the LWL tailors. They already had Valkyrie’s sizes on hand. Elda’s you had to guess on. Pretty sure you got them wrong, but those merc costumes are pretty stretchy, so things should be fine.Satisfied by your day’s work, you kick off your shoes and fall into a deep, peaceful sleep.
>>30948984Seriously thhough it at all possible we should link up with Val and miz if at all possible, with drunken teen or not
>>30949148And that's it for today/tonight's thread.As always, great time running for you guys. Doubly so thanks to that awesome drawfaggotry. I swear to Christ, there will be a satisfying Valkyrie scene at some point, I'm pretty fond of her too, just not while I'm so worn down.Won't run tomorrow, need to rest.
>>30949170Next thread shall have more Valk I hope.Very excite for it.
>>30949170>I swear to Christ, there will be a satisfying Valkyrie scene at some point, I'm pretty fond of her too, just not while I'm so worn down.S'all good FG, you've been running for 12 hours+ go get some well deserved rest, we can have Valkyrie funtimes next thread.Thanks for running, cya next time.
>>30949170>I swear to Christ, there will be a satisfying Valkyrie scene at some pointAs long as Thundertits will be involved I'll be pleased, maybe Ivan and Valkyrie could properly 'welcome' her to SO next thread.
>>30949170>As always, great time running for you guys. Doubly so thanks to that awesome drawfaggotry. I swear to Christ, there will be a satisfying Valkyrie scene at some point, I'm pretty fond of her too, just not while I'm so worn down.Please let the next one have everything we passed over from now till then.
>>30949170Thanks for another great thread Fall Guy.
Did Simge lose waifu status?
>>30951757Simge is no waifu anon, Simge is brosis, Vix is Lord Jack Churchill's waifu
>>30951757Smige, and probably most of the seasoned merc women, is looking for some action but not anything resembling a serious relationship with a coworker. They're too used to fellow Mercs dying to want that. So Smige never had waifs status, she had friend-with-potential-fun times status, and she still does.
>>30951757No, but I am deeply disappointed by her. She could have done much better than that little delinquent shit.
These threads seem to have to run out of steam. Sad, really.
>>30952273What do you mean by that?
>>30952374Slower post rate, fewer replies, that kind of thing.
>>30952425uhh not really, this is todays second thread after FG ran for 12+ hours, previous one had well over 600 posts...
>>30951757I dunno, I think she's still fine. I mean, Ivan's clearly playing the field, no reason Simge can't too.
>>30954045Its a requirement for waifu status. Angry Italian bitch is the only qualifying waifu now.
>>30954474We can do it anon. We can waifu Simge.
>>30949148>sharing a suit with Valkyrie>No indication of her and Miyuki when we get thereDammit Ivan, you should have waited for them to get back from the ladies room before heading out!
>>30954526I want to waifu our axe.
>>30954526Just to be clear, what exactly do you mean by "waifu" in a future of casual relationships and fleeting hook ups?
>>30954863Considering how much that axe is an extension of Ivan himself, that's like saying Ivan should waifu his right hand. Which I'm sure he does on occasion, but it's more of a business transaction that any emotional intimacy.
>>30954870Kill her so she can never be with another.
>>30954820And share the champagne?!?
>>30954892>not waifuing your handThe emotional connection between a man and his hand is more powerful than anything else. Also dat axe.
>>30954899Man, we really waifu'd Dreads hard.
>>30946386And I want everyone whining about waifus to leave the quest forever and I think that's more likely to happen when Fall Guy reasserts "no long term relationships among mercs."We can't all live the dream.
>>30954905And maybe the thundertits...nah, we wouldn't want to scare them off before basic.
>>30954952Dreads will always be in my heart
>>30954944There are always better hands.
>>30954972Then why are you being unfaithful to him, looking at Smige that way? Have you no honor?!
>>30954953>implying anyone is being seriousAnon, I think you might need to relax, stress is bad for your heart.
>>30955010I really want to push the Simge thing since based Drawfriend said he'd be doing a picture of Ivan and Simge in costume
>>30955025...yeah, but that's just bringing her into our spcircle of friends and having excellent sex with her from time to time. The waifuing you're talking about is between Ivan and Smige's characters, which is probably more likely to persist next season if Ivan and Smige don't waifu each other.I want more of Drawfriend's incredible work especially on of Val in the costume we got her but I don't think that's a good reason for trying to force a relationship that but it's nature and the nature our mercenary work cannot be rushed.Mercs generally aren't built for stable relationships, you know?
I really loved this mission. If we get the opportunity to make another appearance, the Himewari girls can play as servants for us and Lady Vix. There is a virtually inexhaustible supply of material here. School trip to the countryside? LJC and Vix in tweeds for pheasant hunting or pinks for fox hunting (Vix's outfit obviously will be worn incorrectly or in some disrepair). Girls as meidos, game-keepers, etc. Beach episode? LJC and Vix in a sailboat armed with harpoons, girls as sailors. Mountains? Alpine gear, girls as sherpas. I could go on and on. We should consider negotiating, through the proper channels of course, some sort of long-term contract with the idol company.This assumes the Himewari girls make it through basic, or stick around long enough for us to do another merc-idol mission.
>>30955171I agree with you, but I feel like longer term monogamy might be possible anyway. Clayton can clearly manage it. Besides, when you are slated to literally live forever, 20 some odd years of monogamy is like a drop in the bucket
>>30956073While I don't disagree with you, I thought that Clay was shacked up with a non-merc. Look, I'm not against monogamy per-say, I just don't think it's appropriate for a young merc like Ivan and I don't really see any of the available female StrikeOut members we've met (unless you want to NTR Niels) as interested in long term commitment. Now, I could see that spchangingnafter a few years of close friendship and great sex, but I don't se Smige or anyone else from the corp shacking up with Ivan anytime soon. If you want something resembling a traditional courtship, theirs always that nurse or our HR officer, both of those seem less into taking huge risks and having a constant flow of adrenaline. On the other hand, neither of them are augmented, so we'd have to play very tame with them...
>>30957473Agreed. Lord only knows what sort of long term relations the various women in our lives are into anyway. Since I seriously doubt that megacorps are particularly interested in enforcing a single idea of marriage pluralism is probably the order of the day.
>>30957473I concur. I know FG has been considering the possibility of a time skip so we can get through a few months worth of boring/repetitive missions without having to go into detail about them. That might be a good way to cement our relationship with the other mercs, both in a romantic and/or platonic sense.
>>30955012Not the same anon, but I guaranfuckingtee the waifufags that ruin other quests are in here.
>>30958372Probably, but I want to see how they react when it turns out that they can't find a virgin (except Neils) or any woman interested in a committed relationship.
>>30958541I think there's probably a girl interested in committed relationship out there, but based on the world FG has created, there not a chance in fucking hell that we'll find any virgins. Everyone is like mid to late twenties at least, and the DAQ-verse seems to have much looser sexual moors than RL. We won't be finding any virgins.
>>30958471In my experience when complaining about waifu fags people are talking about one of two things:1. Romance/funtimes getting too much screen-time (their definition of too much may or may not be reasonable)2. The sheer poisonous atmosphere that inevitably occurs when you ask many different people to all agree on a single girl.
>>30958471There's two major threats waifufags pose to a quest, and I'm not too concerned with one of them.1) They end up redirecting the focus of the quest to romance and doing various things with their waifu. I don't see this being a likely problem, since FG doesn't much care for writing stuff like that.2) They create a toxic atmosphere when people start arguing over which girl the MC ends up with. FG has a lot less ability to control for stuff like that, and that's what I'm personally worried about.
>>30958593>2)I think FG's willing to ignore outright stupidity. As for the toxic atmosphere, suddenly the waifu's in question will be happily seeing other people and gone on long missions. He has enough flexibility to let things happen or not deal with them without breaking the universe.
