While the mission was a success, it didn't quite end in the way you expected. Instead of destroying the weapon stockpiles like originally planned, the weapons were instead whisked away by a mysterious Japanese organization calling itself the Epidemic Prevention Department. Well, besides that, you managed to get away with minimal casualties, which was itself a victory. You stopped by on the Soryu for another quick refuel before the final leg back to Tokyo when a crewman runs up to you. "There is a message for you, Captain." He says deferentially as he hands you a headset. (cont)
>>34047276You nod respectfully to the sailor before donning the headset."Captain Pierce, speaking." You say."Pierce, this is Kelsey." You hear a familiar voice. "A situation just came up.""Not serious, I hope." You frown."Not at all, it just requires a bit of a detour." Kelsey chuckles. "Earlier today one of our witches got in a bit of a skirmish with some Chinese witches just off the Chinese coast. Nothing serious, but she got separated from her wingwitch and her MFD is damaged, so she needs someone to guide her home.""Having us babysitting now?""I know you've just come off a mission, but all you need to do is take a minor detour and show her the way back home. I'd rather not have to retask a perfectly good bird to do it if you're in the area.">Sure, I can afford a little detour.>I'd rather get back to base ASAP>Other
>>34047282>Sure, I can afford a little detour.
>>34047282>>Sure, I can afford a little detour.>>otherBoss, can you get on the Jap's case. They took cases of the anthrax with them and I don't think it was for study.
>>34047282>>Sure, I can afford a little detour.Duty calls.
>>34047282>Sure, I can afford a little detour.also due to the C&C talk I was forced to buy Command and Conquer The Ultimate CollectionRA3 is fucking crazy and I love it
>>34047282>>Sure, I can afford a little detour.go help
>>34047282>Sure, I can afford a little detour.>other: Surreptitiously inform Kelsey about Unit 731 stealing Chinese Bioweapons
>>34047373yuriko a slut
>>34047282"Yeah, sure, I can afford a little detour." You say. "We didn't tax ourselves too bad on that mission anyways.""Good to hear." Kelsey says cheerfully. "We'll forward you her last known position and heading. She shouldn't be too hard to find.""Got it." You nod. "Also, Colonel, remember I was asking you about those EPD guys?""Yes, why?" "Well, during the mission, they 'confiscated' the weapons instead of destroying them like we were originally supposed to. Do you know anything about that?""No." Kelsey's voice suddenly took a grim edge. "I knew nothing about that. If you want, I can make some inquiries.">That would be great, sir. Something is fishy about this.>This sounds like something we shouldn't be nosing around in.>Other
>>34047619>That would be great, sir. Something is fishy about this.I would rather not be linked to a bio weapon attack in the future
>>34047619>>That would be great, sir. Something is fishy about this.The briefing sounds like a better time to talk about this, but we might as well do it now. If the Japs didn't want us to get involved in their war crimes, then they shouldn't have asked us for help.
>>34047619>>That would be great, sir. Something is fishy about this.The last thing we need is the Japanese unleashing bio-weapons.
>>34047619>>That would be great, sir. Something is fishy about this.Both options are true, of course, but let's continue poking.
>>34047619>>That would be great, sir. Something is fishy about this.that fishy smell. that smells fishy
>>34047683WE ARE OVER THE OCEAN OF COURSE IT'S FISHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
>>34047619>That would be great, sir. Something is fishy about this.
>>34047619>That would be great, sir. Something is fishy about this.Also maybe put Tarin on standbye to be safe, cause well, Unit 731 and their personal war crimes squad
>>34047619>>That would be great, sir. Something is fishy about this.
>>34047728No, its just sweaty witch vagina.
>>34047619"That would be great, sir. Something is fishy baout this." You sigh."Got it. I'll ask around. Somebody is bound to know where that order came from." Kelsays says sternly. "Other than that, is there anything else you need?""Not at the moment, no." You shrug. "What's the time window on finding that lost witch?""No hurry. She's well within our air defense zone, but all the same, we don't know how much magic she's got left. We'd rather get her home before she falls out of the sky.""Got it, sir." You take off the headset and hand it back to the Japanese sailor, who gives you a crisp salute before dashing back to the tower. You sigh as you look around. The Umibozu and EPD guys were still here, waiting for their Phrogs to get fully refueled. Your crew and witches were also hanging around though your Ghost Hawk was already fueled and ready to go. You could leave right now, if you wanted.>Is there anything you need to take care of before taking off?>Better go find that lost witch.>Other
>>34048532>>Better go find that lost witch.
>>34048532>>Better go find that lost witch.TIME TO MOVE IT MOVE IT
>>34048532>Better go find that lost witch.Let's roll.
>>34048532>Better go find that lost witch.
>>34048532Tell the EPD and Umibozu guys to hurry up and fill their birds because we have to pick up one of their jap witches before we can escort them home, and we rather not make another trip back to the ship
>>34048532>Better go find that lost witch.>Ask Tarin if she can levy any favors/contacts to get info on EPD find what they are up to.gotta use that rep for something
>>34048626They don't really need us to hold their hands back homeand Kelsey said "one of our witches", he would of said it was a Jap witch if it was one of theirs.
>>34048532"Bullseye! We're taking off!" You say, spinning your finger in the air to signal him to start up the engines."But the Umibozu guys aren't done refueling." Bullseye blinks."New mission. They'll just have to go on without us." You say. "We can have the Comanche keep an eye on them.""Roger that." Bullseye turns to the rest of the crew. "Hey! We're taking off! Finish whatever you're doing and get the hell on!"You jump in the Ghost Hawk's passenger compartment while your witches start powering up their strikers, taking one last sip of juice from their packs. Your Ghost Hawk's motors begin to power up and pretty soon, your little formation is in the air and flying north. "You get the flight data from command?" You ask Bullseye."Yeah, I got it. But it's kinda a wide search area, especially over the open ocean." Bullseye frowns. "Think we should loosen up our formation? It'll help us find her faster."You stop to think. You well within the IJN's air defense zone, so you should be safe.Then again, when has that stopped anybody?>We'll spread out. Finding this lost witch is a priority.>Keep the formation tight. I don't want to take any unnecessary risks.>Other
>We'll spread out. Finding this lost witch is a priority.
>>34048929>We'll spread out. Finding this lost witch is a priority.
>>34048929>>We'll spread out. Finding this lost witch is a priority.
>>34048929>>We'll spread out. Finding this lost witch is a priority.>>OtherBUT.Wing pairs of witches.
>>34048929>We'll spread out. Finding this lost witch is a priority.Hopefully this doesn't need to be said but all the same... Keep at least a single witch close to us.Not like the ghost hawk can defend it's self if things go pear shape.
>>34049021>it's self>itself Phone stop. Please.
>>34049000And 5 minute radio intervals of sit-reps from each separated united, none more further away than 15 minutes from the closest friendly unit.
>>34048929"We'll spread things out, but our witches only go out in pairs." You say. "We may be in a relatively safe zone, but no risks.""Got it." Janice nods. She and Tarin peel off to the right while Jetstream and Euclid peel away to the left.You continue to fly over the open water searching for that lost witch. Every so often, you'll pass by an allied naval or air patrol, in which you trade customary handshakes over the radio and continue on your way."Hey, I think I got something." Bullseye quips. "Up ahead, three o' clock."You head over to the right passenger door and stick your head out to get a better look. Sure enough, you see what looks to be a single witch flying low to the water. Your training manages to identify the silhouette of her strikers as a set of F-18s. That made her Navy or Marines. While your duty transcended petty things like inter-service rivalry, you were still an Air Force crew, and you had traditions to uphold. "Hail her." You tell Bullseye. "Hoskins, Rex, get on the guns. She's most likely friendly but let's be sure. Red, get ready to put up a shield, if need be.""Aye aye." Red salutes, while Hoskins and Rex wordlessly man the mounted miniguns.The Ghost Hawk turns to intercept the witch.It was a simple enough affair, considering how slow she was going. Bullseye keys his radio to a standard naval frequency."Unidentified Witch, this is Recovery One. You are currently in Japanese airspace. Slow to cruising speed, lower your weapon, and allow us to properly ID you.""Hey you guys were the ones sent to help me out? That's cool because I've been flying out here for like HOURS or something and I think I'm just flying circles or maybe- OH MY GOD do you think we flew into the Bermuda Triangle or something?!"You see Rex's posture stiffen, though you ignore it for now and decide to take control of the conversation."Unidentified Witch." You announce. "This is Captain Pierce, US Air Force. Who am I speaking to?"(cont)
>>34049717"2nd Lt. Jessica Bishop United States Marine Corp reporting!" You see the which flip over on her back and salute you as your helo approaches.Bishop? You glance over at Rex, who quickly pulls down his face shield. He gives you the "I'm not fucking here." look with his eyes before clamping his visor down.Yep, looks like they were definitely related somehow.By this point, Jessica pulls up alongside your Ghost Hawk and waves."HEY THERE STRANGERS!" She says loud enough that she actually overpowers the sound of the engine for a second. "NICE TO SEE YOU!">Nice to meet you, too.>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Other
>>34049745>>Nice to meet you, too.oh god.
>>34049745>Nice to meet you, too.Hi... Meet Red. Have fun.
>>34049745>>Nice to meet you, too.I suspect we can't save Rex no matter how hard we try.
>>34049788Yeah it's going to happen and we'll need popcorn for it.
>>34049745>Nice to meet you, too.>Other"You the little witch that lost her way?"I'd put in some joke at her expense about Marines, but I'm not sure if there's an Air Force one that's perfect for this situation or not.
>>34049745>>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?HEY REXGUESS WHAT TIME IT IS
>>34049745>>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?No escape
>>34049745>>Nice to meet you, too.
>>34049745>>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?
>>34049745>Nice to meet you, too.>Do you by any chance know a Rex Bishop...?time for a reunion!
>>34049745Guys, GUYS.We must tell Jessica about Rex and Euclid's hot springs adventures and Rex's growing harem.I, mean, what could possibly go wrong?
>>34049880Absolutely everything...I'm in.
>>34049880Absolutely nothing, all will be right in the world, this must be done!
>>34049745>Nice to meet you, too.
>>34049745>>Nice to meet you, too.There'll be plenty of time to be a dick later.
>>34049880SO MUCH THIS! Yea, we must do this!
>>34049745>>Nice to meet you, too.Nah guys.We pair her with the japanese witches on the flight back.When she introduces herself, Elucid will rat out rex for us.
Isn't Jessica the witch who may or not be in a romantic relationship with Katsumi?Frank POV can be flawed and that came out of left field so I have no idea what is true or not?
>>34049745>Nice to meet you, too.All things in due time.
>>34049954There is no yuri subtext. Only text.
>>34049880And then Jessica tries to "encourage" Rex's relationships along.I am a bad person for supporting this.
>>34049745Rex, say something, I've giving you up ....
>>34049745"Um, it's nice to meet you, too, Lt. Bishop." You say, wondering if she ever took any time to actually breathe in between sentences."Oh you don't need to call me by rank Jess is perfectly fine!" Jess grins. "Hey, Jess." Red leans forward. "So what unit are you from? I don't recall seeing many leathernecks out here.""Ohohoh I'm sorta in a super special unit but I'm not sure if I like it that much because everybody is sooooooooo uptight and I don't think they like me very much but you guys seem pretty cool even if you're all Chairforce!" Jess says in rapid succession."Yoooooooo." Red frowns. "That's now way to be talking to the same people who just saved your ass.""Sorry! Sorry! Force of habit!">Ask her what she's doing all the way out here.>Ask her the exact nature of her unit.>Tell her about Rex.>Other
>>34049745>Nice to meet you, too....Rex is doomed.
>>34050248>>OtherIntroduce our witches to her.When she says her full name again, everything will come out anyways.
>>34050248>>Tell her about Rex.
>>34050248>>Ask her what she's doing all the way out here.
>>34050248>Other"You need a juice pack? And more importantly, were there any pursuers that we need to watch out for?"
>>34050248>>Ask her what she's doing all the way out here.Really. Why is she out here? For that matter how her shit damaged.
>>34050248>Ask her what she's doing all the way out here.Jess vs Red in a little sister showdown, who will win?
>>34050248>Tell her about Rex.
>>34050293This is acceptable as well.
>>34050248>Ask her what she's doing all the way out here.>Ask her why her shit is broken.
>>34050248"So, uh, Jess, what exactly are you doing all the way out here?" You ask."Oh you know flying out and shooting down Ivans and Charlies just like everybody else! You should've seen it too I was facing off against this Chinese witch and her gun was going BAMBAMBAMBAM and mine was going RATTATATA and we were having a TOTALLY AWESOME time till she ran outta ammo and flew away like a little sissy!" Jess sticks her tongue out in disgust. "Guess she wasn't all that bad cuz she busted up my MFD here so I got totally lost and I couldn't find Katsumi or anything and WHERE ARE THERE NO LANDMARKS IN THE OCEAN? It's so easy to get lost out here!"Um, okay."Sounds rad." Red chuckles. "Makes me almost want to take up strikers.""Whooooaaaaa, you're a witch and you're wearing PANTS?" Jess gasps."Got a problem with that?" Red growls."MAYBE I DO!" Jess grunts before cracking up. "Nah I"m just messin' with ya! But you're never gonna get a BF if you dress like that!""W-what's that supposed to mean?!" Red blushes."Oh, I see you're handling things just fine!" Janice says as she and Tarin return. "She seems like an energetic one!""Lieutenant Bishop?" Jetstream gasps when she arrives. Euclid similarly has an surprised expression."Yupyup! A lot of people seem to know me nowadays!" >Ask Jetstream what's going on. >Ask Jess to specify what unit she's from.>Rat out Rex.>Other
>>34050608>Rat out Rex.
>>34050608>Ask Jetstream what's going on. >Ask Jess to specify what unit she's from.
>>34050608>>Ask Jetstream what's going on. >>Ask Jess to specify what unit she's from.
>>34050608>>Ask Jetstream what's going on.
>>34050608>>Ask Jetstream what's going on. >>Ask Jess to specify what unit she's from.I'd rather find out what's going on than hammering on the big red button.
>>34050608>>Rat out Rex.
>>34050608>>Ask Jetstream what's going on.She attached to the emperor's daughter still?
>>34050608>Ask Jetstream what's going on. >Ask Jess to specify what unit she's from.So anyone want to start explaining... anything?
>>34050608>>Rat out Rex.>Rat out Rex.>Rat out Rex.>Rat out Rex.>Rat out Rex.>Rat out Rex.>Rat out Rex.>Rat out Rex.>Rat out Rex.>Rat out Rex.
>>34050608>Ask Jetstream what's going on. >Ask Jess to specify what unit she's from.While this is fun and all, we're burning fuel here and I don't want to get pounced by a Russian Witch Ace in a steelwing prototype while we have only half a tank of fuel.
>>34050608>Ask Jetstream what's going on.
>>34050608>>Rat out Rex.Oi Rex buddy, your sister is here. Say something dude.
all this same fag!
>>34050608>Ask Jetstream what's going on. >Ask Jess to specify what unit she's from.NO RAT
>>34050852Same fags on both side. Merc, please why not freaking ALL of it and shut down the same faggings.
>>34050894I'm down with this.>Jetstream, the fuck is going on?>Jess, the fuck unit are you attached to?>Rex, do you know her, and if so, is she always like a squirrel on a cocaine rush?
>>34050608>Fuck it, we're going with all three."Whoa, what's this all about?" You blink and turn to Jess. "What unit are you from, exactly?""I'm Princess Katsumi's best buddy!" Jess points a thumb to herself proudly.You look to Jetstream for a better explanation."Lieutenant Bishop-""JESS!""Jess here is Princess Katsumi's favored personal bodyguard." Jetstream explained. "So, in effect, Jess here is a member of the Imperial Royal Guard.""Dang." You whistle. "I guess that's a pretty good job for a Marine.""So THAT'S who your wingwitch was?" Red blinks.Now you sort of figured why Kelsey never specifically named them over the radio. A Japanese princess seemed to be a pretty big deal."Anyways," You grin. "Jess, how would feel if I told you I worked with a guy named Rex, who has the same last name as you?""HOLY SHIT YOU KNOW REX?!" Jess' eyes widen to the size of dinner plates. "Whereishe!?!"Meanwhile, the still masked Rex turns to you. You suspect some sort of deathglare was hiding behind that visor of his.>Tell her.>Don't tell her. >Other
>>34051249>>OtherPoint at himToo late
>>34048929>Spread out like Janice's legs in the bath
>>34051249>Don't tell her.
>>34051249>>34051270No words needed
>>34051270It was always too late
>>34051249>>34049880This is only the beginning Rex. ONLY THE BEGINNING.
>>34051270No no, point to the guy next to him facing away. Scare the shit out of him.
>>34051249Say "Yeah, I know a guy who's got that name. Due to reasons he's in hiding now, but I'm sure you'll find him soon if you look hard enough."Then shrug as you nod in his general direction.
>>34051249>Don't tell her.I suppose it's futile; people are going to rat our Rex, even though he doesn't want us to.I hope he does take this personally, because he does have an actual reason to. It'd be more interesting.
>>34051344What do you expect from /tg/ and a red button.
>>34051344shut up you big baby
Is Jessica still in her strikers and flying outside? There ain't much she can do besides talking his ear off.
>>34051249Do you think she could convince her royal family member princess friend to give us access to the restricted files of the EPD to see if we can figure out what's really going down with them?
>>34051411Don't think so but if we tell her what happened, she can apply royal pressure to make sure the stuff doesnt get used.
>>34051411Or the princess can do it herself or set some restrictions/observers instead.
>>34051249>>Tell her.>OtherAny idea where the princess is now, last known position, etc.
...Wait. Wasn't Kasumi at the castle?
>>34051249You just point at Rex."REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEX!" Jess boosts perilously close to the Ghost Hawk and literally bear hugs Rex, nearly pulling him out of the helo."Jess." Rex grunts. You're not sure if he was being his normal untalkative self or if that was all he was physically capable of saying."Howhaveyoubeendoingyoudon'tcallorwriteoranything!" Jess squeals as she rubs her face against Rex's chest.Farther back, you can see Euclid giving Jess a bit of a dirty look. You can guess a few reasons why."Now now." Janice finally finds a time to intervene. She gently grabs Jess by the back of the collar like a naughty cat and pulls her away from the Ghost Hawk. "I think you should take a deep breath and calm down.""Yeah yeah sure!" Jess nods and makes a loud inhaling noise. "So what have you been up to Big Bro?!"Sighing, Rex raises his visor and takes his mask off. "Nothing much. You?""Oh you know the usual. Flying around like a badass and shooting bad guys and hanging out with Kat and everything!""Sounds nice." Rex grunts."Hey and who's that?" Jess points to Euclid, who is hanging back just behind her."That's Euclid, one of our witches." You explain.Jess then whips her head back to Rex."Big bro, big bro she's like wow not stopped staring at you since I showed up you should totally seal the deal if yuhknowwhadImean it totally worked out for me and Kat and she doesn't mind it when I ambush her anywhere though she usually manages to hold me off until we get some place a lot more pri-"And that's when Rex leans out of the helo and karate chops Jess right in the middle of the forehead.Meanwhile, Euclid's face was flushing red with horror. >Just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.>Better step in before they start killing each other.>Other
>>34051564>it totally worked out for me and Kat and she doesn't mind it when I ambush her anywhere though she usually manages to hold me off until we get some place a lot more pri-"WELP
>>34051564>Just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.
>>34051564>"Big bro, big bro she's like wow not stopped staring at you since I showed up you should totally seal the deal if yuhknowwhadImean it totally worked out for me and Kat and she doesn't mind it when I ambush her anywhere though she usually manages to hold me off until we get some place a lot more pri-"So I guess it's true or friends with benefits?
>>34051564>Just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.Ahh this is delicious. Mention that Rex has another girl who likes him and spent his leave with her. They even held hands!
>>34051564>Just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.REJOICE REX THIS IS THE PATH YOU HAVE CHOSE
>>34051598I just hope it's a passing phase.
>>34051564>>Better step in before they start killing each other.Merc don't you NTR Ghost
>>34051564>>Just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.Poor euclid
>>34051637How can you be this retarded.Jess and Kat have been a thing for fucking weeks already.
>>34051646you know the fate of frank and his brothers....
>>34051564>>Better step in before they start killing each other.CONFIRMATION WAS WORTH IT BUT WE DON'T WANT A BIGGER INCIDENT
>>34051564>"Big bro, big bro she's like wow not stopped staring at you since I showed up you should totally seal the deal if yuhknowwhadImean it totally worked out for me and Kat and she doesn't mind it when I ambush her anywhere though she usually manages to hold me off until we get some place a lot more pri-"Aw shit, I guess it is true then. It did kind of came out of left field though and suddenly. I guess that is what bothered me more then anything else. Least Mav gave us build up from the start.Not sure if this was due to fan speculation or some ghost just decided it on a whim.
>>34051564>"Big bro, big bro she's like wow not stopped staring at you since I showed up you should totally seal the deal if yuhknowwhadImean it totally worked out for me and Kat and she doesn't mind it when I ambush her anywhere though she usually manages to hold me off until we get some place a lot more pri-"TMI.Gonna have to struggle to keep a straight face when meeting the princess now.
>>34051674FUCK YOU WE DO!>>34051564>>Just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.in the name of kane!
>>34051664Normally I agree with you but I guessed it bothered me since that reveal came out of nowhere I guess.
>>34051679Jess Quest already made it pretty clear that she thought pretty highly of Katsumi, and her actions in that thread probably started their relationship.This is /tg/ though, and unless we see actual sex, it hasn't happened.
>>34051664Ah yes, the dense anon. I already KNOW that. I'm burned out of 'Oh, hello! I'm a lesbien!' characters as of late. It's been done to death, Bi-sexual is not so over done, and I can buy that with Jess.
>>34051772why do you care so much
>>34051772...get the fuck out
>>34051772Jesus fucking christ piss off already you retard
>>34051746Yeah sure, She thought of her as a friend or something and treated her very nice but I thought it was friendship or something and anons putting on the shipping goggles. But yeah between then and now was really out of nowhere though, and Jess said she was her best buddy?So there friends that fuck each other? I'm thinking about this too much.
>>34051704Indeed. That came out of no where. Forgive me Merc, that didn't go well with me.
>>34051772Man most days you manage to hover around mostly tolerable but this is some next level dumb shit right here
>>34051821Are you also Fluff and just posting anon, because you sound just as stupid as he is.
>>34051564>>Just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.Interesting...
>>34051789Because I generally like Mercs work. He seems to be an alright fellow. I am just giving honest criticism. >>34051797>>34051809Thank you and I love you too anons.
>>34051704>>34051828How can you anons be this stupid, it didn't come out of nowhere unless this is the first thread you've read in a Strikers '89 universe quest.
>>34051832So someone else has a different view on something, so that make me dumb? OK, sorry you feel that way anon. >>34051871No, that anon is not me.
>>34051564You know, common sense and decency would have told you to put a stop to this a long time ago, but honestly this was just too damn funny. Especially when you gauge the reactions of the others. Hoskins is just chortling endlessly, while Red, Jetstream and Euclid were all massively embarrassed at the scandalous things Jess revealed. Tarin was just looking on as if wondering what the heck was all the commotion, while Janice just looked on with that cheerful smile of hers, like a mother watching her little children bickering."It's not what you think." Rex grunts. "There's nothing between us.""Hm okay sure whatever you say." Jess says, clearly not convinced. "But man I'd totally make a move on her if I wasn't already with Kat you know? Unless OHMYGOD you've got eyes on another witch?! WE HAVE A LOVE TRIANGLE ON OUR HANDS HERE!">Tell her about Ghost.>Stay quiet.>Other
>>34051907Unfortunately, criticism doesn't work if the one giving it is a fucking retard.
>>34051871No, I'm not Fluff just probably overthinking the issue. it didn't bother me at all with Young spawn but that was with Mav and it kind of showed it. When Frank POV told us the relationship kind of came out of random probably due to us not hanging out with Jess other then her jumping out and surprising us so that piece of character development was kind of glossed over.I'm not against it and probably overthinking it again but it would have gone over better to see a bit of the development or something like that.
>>34051907>I am just giving honest criticism.No, you're not.>>34051956>OtherTell Rex to tell her about Ghost
>>34051956>Stay quiet.Yeah, no that's just beyond a dick move.
>>34051956>>Stay quiet.we had our fun
>>34051956>Tell her about Ghost.Rex, we were recently in europe.
>>34051941How is it stupid besides the Jess side-quest, what other development have we seen other then from Frank mentioning it?
>>34051967Jess X Katsumi has had *far* more actual buildup than Mav X Youngspawn.You're both over-thinking and ill-informed.
>>34051956>>Stay quiet.Rex is already liable to try to kick our ass after this. No need to send this hellion after a secret squirrel witch.
>>34051956>>Stay quiet.Nope. Don't say anything.Not our business to volunteer information.
>>34051956>>OtherShut it down"Alright kids, thats about enough. Bishops, we need to get back to the ship before any pursuit shows up."Save the Rex.
>>34052016When was this? Besides Anon's speculation and the Jess Side-Quest?
>>34052066(That alone is still more buildup than Mav and Youngspawn had, but I digress)There was an aside/writefagging AGES ago just after Japan that involved Jess, Kat and Coffee that was separate from the Airliner thing. Plus Jess had been pretty attached to Katsumi in all their screentime since the two showed up.
>>34052065We're not going back to the ship... We're heading back to base. And considering we've been seeing regular naval patrols I highly doubt there's a pursuit going on.
>>34051956Changing from >>34052029 to >>34052065
>>34051956>Stay quiet.>>34051967That is what I am saying, but those other anons are rather overly emotional here. It is refreshing to see someone else who isn't verbally abusive to others in here.
>>34052132You're a retard.
>>34052147you are just proving his point!
>>34052161He has no point. He's a retard.
>>34052132If you didn't see it coming, let alone already know about it, then you're a blind monkey.Which is true seeing you're about as intelligent as one.
>>34052119I do remember that story. What I took from it is that they are just good friends, that was it. No sex.
>>34051956>>Tell her about Ghost.Doooo ittttt....
>>34052192Ladies and gentlemen, may I give you Exhibit A:The Retard.
>>34052182that might be true but you are just as retarded
>>34052192At the time, sure. It was clearly a buildup to a relationship, though. People don't magically start fucking at first sight.
>>34052119Oooh ok, I was not aware of that. I didn't pick up SW 89 until the whole Katya and Frank crash in California. I thought write-ins were not canon at the time and anons's just shipping (The Mav futanari thing did not help me) and I avoided them until Feelthy's snippets.So I apologize for that.The latter part though about just spending time though at the time I just thought of Jess just being Jess and her doing wacky things because she's on a caffeine high all the time.
>>34052192You're a Retard.
>>34052209Remember, anon considers sex to be the culmination of interpersonal reactions, so if they don't see sex, it hasn't happened, and the characters in question are just friends.
EVERYONE IS FUCKING RETARDED TONIGHT!
>>34052270blame /u/ and lesbians, that's always a good targetBut seriously, Ghost must be laughing his ass off at this
>>34052255That is exactly how I see it. Merc does not write lewds in here.
>>34052293well he is a dirty kane lover
>>34052298Jesus fucking christ shut the fuck up already you faggot.Congratulations on ruining the thread.
>>34052293I hope so! These anons are just so worked up and excitable tonight. I for one am also laughing at the angry ones in here. My jimmies are not russled at all.
>>34052298I... what. How does any of what's gone on equate to "lewds". What kind of absurd leap of awful logic do you have to have to make that connection?What the fuck are you smoking?
>>34052364The mere implication of sex is lewd for those who've never had it.
>>34052298are you high? I want to know
>>34052298You do realise he's mocking you and your viewpoint, right?
>>34052293yes and no. I do understand how some anon are confused, since Frank really hasn't seen much of Jessica if you think about it- just a little bit in Japan and then Barin, and since he's really the only major point of view we get (aside from occasional oneshots in other character's shoes- planning a couple of those now, actually) I can see as to where it could seem like it's completely out of nowhere. That's even more true because I try and make some effort to keep things kind of within perspective as frank- he doesn't want to believe Jessica is 'one of those' witches, so they're just really close friends. At the same time, I mean, her last thought before passing out in the airliner incident was to admire Katsumi's Chest, so....And, finally>Stay quiet. Jess is many things. Cupid she ain't. though god knows she'd try.
>>34052298Dude, Lewds doesn't have to always be the signal of a relationship. I mean sure I thought what had happen in Ghost's thread when Frank mentioned it a while back to be a surprise but to make the connection is a bit of a stretch.
you all sure getting worked up just for trivial things.I am more concerned when Katsumi fly off from Barin to Japan.
>>34052391And this Ghost has spokenth, and all is well on world.
>>34052426All will be well when Fluff dies in a chemical fire.
>>34052391Huh, But Merc kind of confirmed the issue at the same time they said their best friends?That is a little weird and I kind of feel for frank.Do you and Merc have discussions on these issues or do you let each other kind of wing it?
>>34051956You briefly consider telling Jess about Ghost, but you decide you're better off not adding fuel to the fire. Janice, however, seems to sense that things have run their course and decides to intervene."Now now, I think we've all had enough fun for today." Janice says a bit louder than usual to get everybody's attention. "I think we should focus on getting back to Tokyo before a MiG decides to jump us while we squabble here."Shaken back to their senses by the one voice of reason, the witches start to disperse into a looser combat formation. However, you do see Jess hanging close to Euclid, talking about something. Whatever it was, it seemed to be suitably embarrassing, judging by the fact that Euclid's face keeps getting redder and redder."Sisters, huh?" You say to Rex."Sisters." Rex sighs and shakes his head.Finally after a bit more flying, you're greeted by a pair of Shinden 2s, and a Japanese witch, no doubt from the Royal Guard. "HI OGAWA!" Jess waves as she shoots forward. "Heyheyhey, where's Kat?""PRINCESS KATSUMI is currently resting at the palace." Ogawa says rather icily. You get the impression she doesn't like Jess all that much, and blurts out the next part almost reluctantly. "The Princess is very anxious to see that you are well.""Well okay let's go!" Jess nods an turns back to you. "Thanks for the help guys! Rex IT'S NOT OVER!""I know...." Rex sighs. (cont)
>>34052469With that bit of business done, you return to Tokyo with little issue. You and Red disembark from the Ghost Hawk while your ground crew starts to get to work getting it back into the hangar. "Man, Jess sure is a hyper one." Red sighs. "Yeah, I never thought I'd ever find a witch more annoying than you." You grin."H-hey!" Red punches you lightly in the shoulder. "That's not funny!""It kinda is!" You chuckle."Whatever." Red grunts. "So what do we do now?"Technically, you were now officially off duty, so you could go grab some rest. Then again...>Talk to Jetstream about the Royal Family and Royal Guard>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.>Go find the Umibozu and see if they made it here fine.>Talk to Rex about Jess.>Other
>>34052469Based Janice.She knows what to do.
>>34052488>Go find the Umibozu and see if they made it here fine.
>>34052488>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.And we still need to find out if she apologised to Rex.
>>34052488>>Go find the Umibozu and see if they made it here fine.
>>34052488>Talk to Rex about Jess.Talk about sisters and why they're all annoying.
>>34052488>>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.AND>>Where to find the Umibozu and see if they made it here fine.
>>34052488>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.
>>34052488>>Go find the Umibozu and see if they made it here fine.>>Talk to Rex about Jess.
>>34052391Very well then. I will accept that and hold my peace. >>34052407Indeed they are. I express my thoughts on it civilly and most of the other anons appear to lose their self control.
>>34052457bit from column A and a bit from column B. we work out general ideas dealing with the characters, help each other kind of 'get' the character, then it's like, ok go. He and I have a pretty good working relationship, though, so it's not ever been a big deal to swing stuff like this. As for Frank, well. Jessica knows her brother, and is likely to hide it from him until she can make the biggest possible explosion with the announcement. Like sending him an imperial wedding invitation. hahahahaha.
>>34052488 >>Go find the Umibozu and see if they made it here fine.
>>34052488>Go find the Umibozu and see if they made it here fine.We did technically leave them in the lurch, even if they were in secured airspace.
>>34052488>>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.I'm going to love this.
>>34052488>>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.
>>34052488>>Go find the Umibozu and see if they made it here fine.Eyes on the targetAnti Biological warfare
>>34052488>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.>>34052391>Implying Jessica isn't going to try playing Cupid anyway.
>>34052488>Go find the Umibozu and see if they made it here fine.>Talk to Rex about Jess.
>>34052488>>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.Well this is should be funny no matter what
>>34052488>>Talk to Jetstream about the Royal Family and Royal Guard>>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.>Talk to Jetstream about the Royal Family and Royal Guard>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.
>>34052555....so if that happen (for lulz), is that means Fronk is member of Japanese Royalty?
>>34052488>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.Well we still need confirmation of that apology and well...This is going to be pretty damn funny.
>>34052555Oh ok, Thanks for the context. Sorry for the trouble from earlier and understanding my confusion on the subject. Imperial Wedding....I feel sorry for Frank.and what do you mean by 'those kind' of witches? That sounds like something that Mav will give him flak for.
>>34052488>>Talk to Jetstream about the Royal Family and Royal Guard
>>34052488>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.Either she's going to go beat red again or... Well there really isn't an 'or' here.
>>34052641Or Jess helpfully fills us in, as Euclid doesn't seem able to speak all of the sudden.
>>34052488>Talk to Jetstream about the Royal Family and Royal Guard>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.
>>34052672Based on what was written. Jess isn't around anymore, happily or sadly, depending one's view.
>>34052488>>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.LEWDS
>>34052615I also feel bad for Frank, But I feel worse for Katsumi. If she really is the heir to the throne or even close in line, and how I understand Japan and their culture, her family would forbid and reject her getting married to Jess. A tragedy.
>>34052753>I'm an expert on Japan, having watched many animes and read many mangas from my comfortable home in notJapan, and
>>34052488You decide to talk to Euclid about what Jess was saying to her. Whatever it was, it seemed to be really getting her worked up. The first thing Euclid does is storm off to the firing range, where she sets up her bow and starts shooting arrows at the targets."Huh, I guess that's how she lets off stress." Red remarks."Makes sense, considering your method of stress relief is cutting things." You sigh. "True." Red nods. "Hey, Euclid." You call out. Apparently, Euclid was more high strung than usual as she gives a loud squeak and accidentally lets go of her nocked arrow too early, sending the arrow flying wildly into the protective berm at the rear of the range."C-captain!" Euclid stammers. "What are you doing here?""I was just wondering what you and Jess were talking about on the way back here." You say. "It seems to have gotten you really worked up. It wasn't anything too bad, was it?""N-n-no, it was nothing!" Euclid laughs awkwardly. "Just some friendly bonding, that's all!">Uh huh, okay sure. We'll go with that.>She was trying to set you up with Rex, wasn't she?>Other
>>34052792>She was trying to set you up with Rex, wasn't she?
you lot can navigate this minefield.
>>34052792>"Just some friendly bonding, that's all!"I read that as family for a second. My reading comprehension is failing me.>She was trying to set you up with Rex, wasn't she?
>>34052792>Uh huh, okay sure. We'll go with that.
>>34052821>I read that as family for a secondThat's probably how Jess saw it too
>>34052792Uh, well.Ok, I've got nothing.
>>34052792>>She was trying to set you up with Rex, wasn't she?
>>34052792>She was trying to set you up with Rex, wasn't she?>>34052846OH SNAP!
>>34052753You're a Retard.
>>34052615Yeah, mav and young (and to a lesser extent, the twins) would give him shit if he tried to air out his doubts on the subject if and when he learns of it. He's being completely unrealistic- basically expecting his sister to be completely virginal and pure till forever, effectively, not taking into account that it's Jess, and she's always been out to try new things, not just flavors of coffee. >>34052607Well, kinda-sorta. If she marries Jess, Katsumi is out of the line of succession (she's pretty low anyway, behind all her brothers), but she's still considered imperial royalty. In-setting, the rules of succession and marriage are pretty convoluted for the Imperial Japanese. What you really need to worry about is Frank becoming a Romanov. hahahaha
>>34052792>>Uh huh, okay sure. We'll go with that.
>>34052893>What you really need to worry about is Frank becoming a RomanovBishops will be one most interesting family there.Too bad nothing comes up from that Arabian Princess with Jake. Or is it....
>>34052893>What you really need to worry about is Frank becoming a Romanov. hahahahaWhat happens in that case?Because thats what things are leading to if we set Ice up as the (figurehead) leader of a reformed russia
>>34052923>>34052935>>34052893Take that, von Habsburgs.
>>34052923Jake will marry american.mah sushi
>>34052893So it's a character flaw on Frank's part and while he is being completely unrealistic. I can't help but feel for him on that issue, you tend not to think of your sisters like that or in those situations especially with other women but Mav and the others have a point as well, it's a matter of perspective.
>>34052923Well, with them the important bit is literally every single witch in Saudi is a princess. Even if something happens there, it's unlikely to amount to much. other than that you could then say that 75% of the bishop children married into royalty. (in before witchGhost is related to the French crown or something)
>>34052935>Because thats what things are leading to if we set Ice up as the (figurehead) leader of a reformed russiaJust imagine the country created and lead by Fronk's harem, Ice the political figurehead, Sloidah the head of armed forces, Katya the head of external security, Brigitte the head of internal security, with ties to America through Merlin and Nixon and Japan through Jess.
>>34052960I can't wait for Jake to meet german bitchtits againthe hatesex would be amazing
>>34052893Oh? I had originally presumed she was higher in the succession line than that. I stand corrected then.
>>34052935>Russia>Reformedlolno.Though Putin might at least recognize Ice lineage though not as figurehead.>>34052960>not saying Tops.Though Sushi is great too.>>34052991>you could then say that 75% of the bishop children married into royaltythats enough. Huehuehue
>>34052991In before Rex picks up a loli from the English royal family and if Ghost is part of the french part of the french crown.The restart of the 100 years war will come.
>>34053041>The restart of the 100 years war will come.Its been going on in the bedroom of Rosalie's parents for many years anon
>>34052995That would be an awesome country!>>34053012Well, If Russia was re-organized into a representative monarchy like how England is, it could work with Putin as the MP.
>>34053012Kind of like the English Parliament and Government does for the English Royal Family? what about the german? >>34052995Where is Stalker?
>>34053102Fluffy in waiting
>>34053072>>34053102I wonder if Russian common peoples will accept an American as head of government. Unless there are strong grassroot movement to bring back Romanov, i doubt Ice as monarchy scenario will happen.
>>34053124Head of KGB or a part of it?Ghost did Konstantina hitch a ride to France?
>>34053102England is not a good example as they were the only ones to truly pull something like that off and have it stick.Russia is much more like France in regards to any type of Royalty. It would end with a lot of blood and dead Royalty.
>>34053102>Where is Stalker?Secret Police or Royal Guard
>>34053166We get through this war, saving russia from the martians and stalin, we may have something to stand on.
And oh, I'd be lol'ed if Whitmann turns out to be descendant of some Prussian Blue Blood.Blame Merc and Ghost to give me weird idea.
>>34053156Maybe not as head of government years of communism and technically a system that did not break will probably not welcome Ice as a new head of a government.Maybe accept her as part of the old monarchy and treat her as a diplomatic representative or something will be more likely
>>34053189No. We wouldn't. Forcing anything onto Russia is laughable at best.
>>34053193there's the possibility that she might not want to assume any sort of power.
>>34053216And thank you for being the one voice that remembers that characters can and will make they're own decisions without the players around. Really people. Ice will not take this nor accept it. Not even at gun point.
>>34053216>>34053247True, I'm not saying she'll accept the power but she will whether she'll like it or not be recognized as the heir to the royal family of the Russain monarchy.Anything other then name and title will be up to her but those will stick if it were to become known
>>34053193>>34053166Maybe, If it turns out that Stalin himself have been turned to the Aliens side and been their agent all these years, the disgust of the people might be enough to do a complete over haul of the governmental system. If Ice becomes a Matron herself. she can use their pull to affect the change. The economic system? Who knows yet.
>>34053216That is very true. But Ice will cross that Rubicon or not when it is time.
>>34053415Unless it is a very extraordinary situation that requires Ice to use Romanov card since other options are much, much worse... Even that, she might step down after crisis averted.
>>34052893So such a shit slinging will happen in the story then.
>>34053216Possibility? Why would Ice, who has no real attachment to Russia outside of an obscure familial connection that her grandmother and mother have kept away from her for her sake, throw away everything she knows and loves just to TRY and be an authority in a country whose pilots she's been culling almost as hard as one of Stalin's purges?I'm convinced that some of these ideas come from folks who don't actually read the threads, they just wait for votes that might be tangentially related to their waifu to show up.
>>34053559Don't forget that she doesn't even speak the language.
>>34053559>they just wait for votes that might be tangentially related to their waifu to show up.This bit wasn't really needed. The rest before then is spot on. People really just don't read the threads or off in their little worlds making shit up as their canon or whatever. It's sad because people will somehow take what they say seriously vote like for stupid things like it.
>>34053638>vote for some action/plot choice>5, maybe 10 anons vote if its particularly busy that night>SPEND TIME WITH A WAIFU???>20+ votes within five minutes of the choice being offered
>>34053712Welcome to SWQ.And somebody need check on Merc. He might died from laughter.
Sorry guys, posting is delayed right now. I'll try to get started as soon as possible!
>>34053735We might have to start a second thread like Cyber Idols/
>>34053712This actually bothered me up until earlier today, then I had an epiphany. I'm just going to start making the action choices a lot more important. Sure, your decisions on the ground matter, but you made your name in the sky, and what you do in the wyvern is going to matter a whole lot more in the long run, IMO. At least, that's the plan. we'll see if that ends up being workable or not
>>34053868I don't think that'd change anything, that and the last time air votes had a weight, we got the kittyhawk.
>>34053868It's not going to change Boss man. People will still not vote on the action scenes because it doesn't have their waifu in it.
>>34053868Weren't the action choices important to begin with, I mean Brain and Tanana were my favorite due to the choices, the Kittyhawk also as well
>>34052792"She was trying to set you up with Rex, wasn't she?" You narrow your eyes. "She kept saying all these lewd things!" Euclid cries. "What does 'helping him lay the pipe' mean?!"You weren't sure if you wanted to tell her that."Ah, well, I'm sure she's got good intentions." You say."Considering she's got a very warped idea of what's 'good.'" Red adds in."Shut it, Red, you're not helping." You sigh. "S-she said she'd be my cupid! Or something like that. I don't even know what that is!" Euclid continues.>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.>Tell her Rex is already committed.>Other
>>34053868Uhh dude, that changes literally nothing as that's the way things already are right now...Trying to mess around with things like that won't impact the waifufags and will only cause problems.
>>34054009>>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.>>Tell her Rex is already committed.
>>34054009>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.>Tell her Rex is already committed.
>>34054009>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.
>>34054009>>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.>>Tell her Rex is already committed."So yeah. Unless you alright with har-Red, i just kiding, keep that sword out"
>>34054009>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.>Other: You should probably talk to Rex though before you get to hung up on pursuing thing. Not our place to talk about Rex relationships
>>34054009>>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.>>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.What Rex says is up to Rex.He needs to take care of his shit, don't butt in.
>>34054009>>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.>>Tell her Rex is already committed.
>>34054009>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.Goddammit Jess.
>>34054009>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.>>34054082This, the rest is up to Rex.
>>34054009>>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.It's too soon to speak of if he's committed or not. and trying to do so might backfire.
>>34054009>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.
>>34054009>>Ask Euclid what she and Jess were talking about.Make sure she knows what's on in her head first
>>34054009>>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.And >>34054081Not our place. At all.We kept our silence on the heli, no need to rat him out now.
Guys why are we putting words in Rex's mouth? I can only see it ending badly mainly via a pissed off Rex.
>>34054009>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.Tell her she has to talk with him, if she does want to pursue Rex.
>>34054009>>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.
>>34054009>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.It's way too soon to say he's committed, considering that he isn't really sure himself.
>>34053920They were, up until the barin arc, to some extent. Natalya was the real big one there, and you guys got out of that one without any damage. So I should say we're going back to them having some real weight, as opposed to how most of this season has been. >>34053918Their loss, then. You think the waifu(s) aren't going to be watching (or hearing) about what Frank's doing up there? If they elect to skip it, well, that's on them. Next time Frank ends up in a coma (or worse) for amazing heroics, I hope their write ins are good. Nah, that's probably a bit harsh, but you get what I'm saying. there will be repercussions, and if someone elects to just skip that stuff because it's not what they like, well, that's fine, but hopefully they can handle the fallout. >>34053912Well, and Berlin (the notes there were pretty extensive, tbh, with more than a few characters at stake. not to mention the city) And before the Kitty Hawk, you had Tanana and the first contact with the flying carrier, just off the top of my head.
>>34054009>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.Don't stuff words into his mouth.
>>34054009>>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.>>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.
>>34054009>Tell her Rex is already committed.
>>34054162>Their loss, then. You think the waifu(s) aren't going to be watching (or hearing) about what Frank's doing up there? If they elect to skip it, well, that's on them. Next time Frank ends up in a coma (or worse) for amazing heroics, I hope their write ins are good. >>Nah, that's probably a bit harsh, but you get what I'm saying. there will be repercussions, and if someone elects to just skip that stuff because it's not what they like, well, that's fine, but hopefully they can handle the fallout.That is entirely the wrong attitude to take on the issue Ghost.Don't go shitting things up and punishing everyone just because some waifufag does not get as much out of the air combat as the rest of the quest.
>>34054151Which is one of the reasons why I suggest she just go and talk to Rex about this stuff. He's not sure with Ghost and really is looking to wait until the end of the war to do anything. >>34054162>if someone elects to just skip that stuff because it's not what they like, well, that's fine, but hopefully they can handle the fallout.What's going to happen is a shitstrom, Boss. They're going to freak and start playing blame game and on a whole the action scenes are going to turn into Waifu arguments. Which is not going to fun in the least bit.
>>34054162>So I should say we're going back to them having some real weight, as opposed to how most of this season has been.Heres the problem, you think things haven't had real weight and a few anons have been playing not seriously as a result, don't go and fuck things up just because of that.What you've said is the opposite of confidence inspiring.It seems like you're trying to chase your tail and focus solely on those few who don't effect the quest, and you're going down a very dangerous path because of it, for no good reason, to the detriment of the quest itself.
>>34054009>Ask Euclid if she really wants to pursue Rex.>Tell her to ignore whatever Jess says.Rex' love triangle, Rex's business.
>>34054264>>34054242>>34054211Well, if you gents feel that it's that bad a plan, I'll rethink the whole thing.
>>34054211>>34054242>>34054264>>34054264You guys do have a point but I feel as of late with the new season was mostly test flights against witches which besides maybe Natalya had no real consequences.When we go into real battle, things might pick up. Barin was a little slow and Ghost himself suffered delays on certain weeks during this arc,
>>34054311Take things slow dude, no need to think of those few anons misguided perception of things as such a big an issue, otherwise you create problems for yourself.You've been doing fine so far, and I think the cause of these worries is probably the stagnation of affairs at Barin, which makes sense, but its the exception rather than the rule.
>>34054347when it does happen someone should remind anon that it's not like a video game. We don't need another kitty hawk.And if Ghost really wants to shut down the waifuing? Route Lock.
>>34054009"Euclid." You sigh. "Do you really wan to pursue a relationship with Rex?""I... I don't know." Euclid mumbles. "Dunno, the looks you always give him kinda suggest otherwise." Red says."W-what?" Euclid blinks."Come on, you think Jess was the only one to notice?" Red rolls her eyes. "We all did, but we were just nice enough not to say anything.""In either case." You speak up again. "This is something I suggest you talk to Rex about. And don't listen to whatever Jess says. She may have good intentions but I don't think romance is one of her strong suits.""I'll think about it..." Euclid nods glumly."All right then. Carry on." You nod. Satisfied for now, you turn around and move to leave the firing range, Red following close behind."That's a kind thing you did there, though a bit too blunt for my liking." Jetstream grins as she leans on a wall near the exit. "Though I don't blame you. For girls like Euclid, sometimes you have to be blunt.">So what do you think about this situation?>What's the whole deal with Jess being in the Royal Guard anyways?>Other
>>34054390>So what do you think about this situation?
>>34054390>>So what do you think about this situation?
>>34054390>>So what do you think about this situation?>>What's the whole deal with Jess being in the Royal Guard anyways?
>>34054390>>What's the whole deal with Jess being in the Royal Guard anyways?
>>34054390>What's the whole deal with Jess being in the Royal Guard anyways?
>>34054378>And if Ghost really wants to shut down the waifuing? Route Lock.That is the opposite of good storytelling/QM'ing anon.At that point its a You Vs Them affair which you can never recover from, something you never want.
>>34054211It's the correct attitude to take.Why should he coddle "readers" who aren't really paying any fucking attention to parts of the quest that don't directly impact how many love points they get with their current dating sim stand in? It's not his job to make players happy at the expense of the story, either by forcing harems or by making it so they can't fail.If Frank dies or otherwise fails at a task because these anons made a boneheaded decision with their dicks as opposed to their brains, that's not Ghosts' fault. He should totally be allowed to exercise his rights as a writer to write the outcomes of bad decision making.
>>34054480>He should totally be allowed to exercise his rights as a writer to write the outcomes of bad decision making.Goddamn SU-152.
>>34054480Anon, take your arguments back to the QTG where such unhealthy and poor design ideas are welcome.Such 'attitudes' lead to nothing but the death of quests, and no one enjoys the path they take down that road.
>>34054480While I might agree with you on the attitude of what your meaning, do understand that Barin was a bit of a slow arc with no consequences in regards to the sparing and had been months since we played anything in terms of battle like Berlin.If shit happens in a actual battle that has consequences due to waifus then yeah, it will be bad
>>34054492I hated that in German's story. No one listened to reason other then the rookie.
>>34054480>at the expense of the storyEverything you suggest destroy's the story...Its not about coddling the few annoying anons, or spiting them which fucks over everyone else.You don't run things like that, you communicate the issue to those who stand out and they deal with it themselves, you don't ruin things for everyone by taking to the story with the hammer of Bad Practices just to try and deal with a few anons who are honestly a nonissue in the first place.
>>34054521Nobody expect GS pulled THAT. Now we know better.
>>34054547I did, from a mile away and it was common sense you take out the threat first before tending to the wounded, instead we rushed in front of a SU-152 and had our friends die due to one personAlso anons can't freaking resist BOLD LETTERING.
>>34054476The waifufags will not stop otherwise, as long as it's not locked, they will think they can turn things around, resulting in the endless warring. Part of their psychology, same with freaking out and blaming anyone other than themselves when things go pear shaped.
>>34054498'Unhealthy'? Please. It's only unhealthy because you literally want things handed to you regardless of whatever stupid choices your players make, and it's not fair of you, who contributes nothing to the quest in any way, shape, or form, to demand the person writing it to bend over backwards to make you happy every single time.Both you and >>34054537 are assuming I'm saying the quest MUST stop the instant there's a failure. I'm saying that we should be allowed to fail and have it affect the story because we were too stupid to actually pay attention to what we were doing.Go back to qtg and complain anonymously about QMs not paying attention to your brilliant ideas that are born from hours of not actually writing shit.
>>34054557In GermanSchteel MechaMusume Quest, Anons make a string of bad decision which led MC get blasted by SU-152 and get her killed. Thus ending the quest.>>34054570Personally i never expected dead part. Maybe get seriously wounded or amputated, but no dead.
>>34054593>assuming I'm saying the quest MUST stop the instant there's a failureNeither of those posts suggest that anon, you're the only one dealing in absolutes here, and that leads to shitstorms and quest death.
>>34054390"What do you think about this whole thing with Euclid?" You sigh. "Will it affect her combat ability?""I'd love to say no, but honestly, I'm not sure." Jetstream shrugs. "What I can tell you, though, is that Euclid is just a young girl who's spent all of her life in an academy and hasn't had much contact with the outside world until now. Rex is just the first male that's made an impression on her. It's nothing more than a juvenile crush.""Does she know that?""Probably not." Jetstream shakes her head. "I'd say we give her time to sort things out. I doubt Rex reciprocates her feelings anyways, right?""Not particularly, no." "Then I suggest we wait and see. If her emotions get to the point where she isn't combat capable, I'll pull her off duty myself." Jetstream says. "Does that sound fair?""Fair enough." You nod.>Thanks for answering.>What's the deal with Jess and the Royal Guard?>Other
>>34054593Jesus Christ shut the fuck up, you're almost as bad as Fluff is.
>>34054634>What's the deal with Jess and the Royal Guard?
>>34054609>Thus ending the quest.The quest was going to end that way all along, GS wouldn't have had it any other way.>Personally i never expected dead part. Maybe get seriously wounded or amputated, but no dead.So you just ignored everything the QM himself said about the quest?
>>34054634>>What's the deal with Jess and the Royal Guard?
>>34054609It was a Su-152! it had a Russain 152mm cannon! That shit took out Tiger IIs and panther tanks from a a distance away. We received a shot almost point blank range.The setting itself was already dark as hell and already hinted that people will die. Going for a rookie who may have already died while the thing was still on the loose was dumb on all levels.I'm not trying to insult you or your intelligence but just remembering that brings back angry feelings
>>34054609Not surprised considering the main thing GS does is pander to yurifags; he and his fanbase are ILL-PREPARED for actual combat and the results showed.>>34054634>>What's the deal with Jess and the Royal Guard?
>>34054634>>What's the deal with Jess and the Royal Guard?>>OtherHave we checked on Umibozu guys? If not lets check them.
>>34054634>Thanks for answering.Christ people. Enough talking about other peoples quest inside someones else thread.
>>34054634>What's the deal with Jess and the Royal Guard?This ought to be good.
>>34054647Well, he did say we might get PTSD ending.>>34054649Nah, i can't excuse myself for my bad decisions anyway.
>>34054713I think he said that to calm down the backlash but honestly it was dumb, really, really dumb. What made me laugh even more was the fact that even though it said we can turn to face the tank, we tried to anyway due BELIEVE and WILLPOWER. It struck a very bad nerve with me
>>34054713>>34054737>Quest he said inspired off All Quiet on the Western Front>Not ending in bad end either wayAnd seriously, this is all i'll say. Taking this frakking thing to QTG, not discuss it here.
>>34054634"Anyways, what's the deal with Jess and the Royal Guard?" You ask. "Seems like something big happened and we missed it.""Yeah, why's a Marine in your country's Royal Guard? That would be like if a French Foreign Legion guy got into the Secret Service." Red adds in."Well, it's a bit of a complicated story." Jetstream shrugs. "Jess was part of the US Navy task force sent here to help us consolidate our capture of Kamchatka, as well as assist in our defense against China. It's no secret that Princess Katsumi had flown with Frank Bishop.""Okay." You nod. "So she naturally took a liking to his sister?""Exactly." Jetstream nods. "But it wasn't until after Jess singlehandedly prevented an airliner from crashing that things began to change. After that event, Jess become something of a national hero in Japan, despite her foreigner status. That gave Princess Katsumi enough clout to convince the Emperor to allow Jess to be her personal bodyguard, which would make her part of the Royal Guard by default."(cont)
>>34054972"And I'm guessing the rest of the Royal Guard aren't happy with it?" You ask."You have to understand," Jetstream sighs, "it is normally very, VERY difficult to become a Royal Guard. Only those born in a select few families, tracing their lineage back to the earliest Japanese clans, are even eligible to join the Royal Guard. Otherwise you would have to do something truly extraordinary in the service of the Imperial Family to be considered a spot. Naturally, there would be some discontent at a foreigner being let in so easily.""You make it sound like they would frag her at any time." Red frowns."The Royal Guard is still an honorable institution. The order came from the Emperor himself and they will respect it." Jetstream says. "But if Princess Katsumi were ever to be killed in battle or, god forbid, disowned from the Royal Family, I fear Jess would follow her soon after.""Yeah, well, I'm under the impression she doesn't really care about that sort of stuff." You shrug."True." Jetstream laughs. "Anyways, Red, would you like to practice your swordplay while we have the time?""Sure!" Red grins and nods. "Wanna watch, Cap?">Sure. I want to see a real sword fight.>Sorry, I've got other things to take care of.>Other
>>34054989>>Sorry, I've got other things to take care of.We had stuff to do like check our other crews right?
>>34054989>Sorry, I've got other things to take care of.
>>34054989>>Sorry, I've got other things to take care of.Check on crew, make sure japs are not gonna throw biological weapons, etc.
>>34054989>>Sorry, I've got other things to take care of.Work work.
>>34054989>Sorry, I've got other things to take care of.Besides, we already know that Red's good with a sword. Maybe if we remind her this she won't feel so bad about us running off.
>>34055018These are the last of things on the agenda and I doubt our commanding officer will have the information so fast. >>Go find the Umibozu and see if they made it here fine.>>Talk to Rex about Jess.
>>34054989As much as you wanted to see Red and Jetstream duking it out in a mock sword battle, you were the CO, and you had certain responsibilities to take care of. Sacrifices had to be made for the greater good."Sorry, Red, you know how things go. Always busy with something." You say, patting her on the head."Honestly..." Red pouts. "You make all sorts of time for Janice, though.""I'm going to pretend I didn't hear that." You grin as you walk off, waving as you go.You start heading back to the main hangar and round a corner when something small and fast runs right into you. You manage to keep yourself from falling backwards, but you still had the wind knocked out of you."Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry, Captain Pierce!" You hear a girl squeak.Wait a minute, you've heard that voice before..."Ghost?" You blink."H-Hi, Captain." The little stealth witch says cheerfully.>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget to catch Gundam Build Fighters on Friday and Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday!
>>34055189The battle of the lolis have begun! Can't wait for next saturday
>>34055189Ghost! What strings did she pull.
>>34055189Hah.Hahahahahah.HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.THIS IS THE FUTURE YOU CHOSE, REX.
>>34055189Rex: "I didn't ask for this."
>>34055212No. no it's not. I'm taller and surlier than she is. Don't have dem hips, either.
>>34055189Next Sunday will be amazing.
>>34055189what happened to changing the run day for PJW89?
>>34055189Thanks for the thread Merc
>>34055227Lets hope Jess not somehow hear about THIS.
>>34055268Are you kidding me?That'll be the BEST BIT.
>>34055268I too would also like water to not make me wet.
>>34055268Jess is best little sister! also cupid. Poor, poor Rex.
>>34055275Eh, I disagree...a lot. Merlin is best little sister.As Cupid.... well, I imagine she'll compare him to frank in terms of conquests
>>34055275Jess's attempts to get Rex a harem will be hilarious beyond reason.
>>34055275Next thing you'll be saying Merlin is for loodz and pants are the best
>>34055300I never seen Merc do Harems though
>>34055318there always be first time for everything....
>>34055318I never said that she'll be successful.
