It had been quite a hectic trip, and you're left feeling more exhausted than any combat mission.It also didn't help that Red had bought a Nintendo game system for Laika, which she had played all night on the last day, and she kept endlessly humming the tune to one of the games that she had been playing. Hell, she was still doing it now.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiuSCkprkZ0And the boarding ramp isn't even fully down when you see an airman waiting patiently at the bottom, clutching a clipboard, no doubt listing the day's assignments."You've got a busy day ahead of you, sir." The airman salutes.You sigh and shake your head. Back to business a usual.>Go catch up on things with Kelsey.>Go check out those new toys General Granger sent your way.>Make sure your squadron gets settled back in.>Other

>>36907195Your saying it's not.Frankly I;m kind of excited to see Frank.Also hide our witches.
>>36907195Well, bringing back Russian newest toys back to his own side would make some news, at least on some select community.----and Some Christmas 'special' And attempt on giving face for some select males.
>>36907062>Go catch up on things with Kelsey.>>36907238Red's gonna be a victim of a drive-by head patting isn't she?

>>36907310mangafag i love you, full homo.
and the power comes back on just in time!now to crank to heat up!
>>36907339We'll soon have Laika followed by a bunch of Drones.
>>36907447God damn riggers!
>>36907468>witch riggershielded drones...NOPE!
Aaaand i am officially suck on making romance story.Will stick with lewds for next time.
>>36907505That's oddlty sweet.Also no SW89?
>>36907447>>36907468Too bad we couldn't get her a set of prosthetics. Then again, we already have our hands full with her without legs...
>>36907498what would a witch add to a shadowrunning team?
>>36907505Ugly you suave motherfucker.
>>36907719More like a rebound guy but still kind of suave.
>>36907717Close Air Support
>>36907956I am sure lone star will have witches on a list or some shit
>>36907988Lone Star has all the runner archetypes on call anyway.'runners still pull off their shit anyways.
>>36907062"Janice, make sure the rest of the squadron gets squared away." You say. "I might as well pay a visit to the Colonel.""All right, we'll be waiting!" Janice says as she carts Laika away. "Come on, Laika, let's get you changed...""Awwwww, but I wanna see the new plane!" Laika whines."We will..."You hitch a ride with the airman over to Kelsey's office. On the way, you notice a lot heavier security than last you remembered. The MPs were patrolling the area more aggressively, and you even saw Navy SEALs stalking the base, particularly around one of the hangars reserved for Navy birds. You make a silent note of it as you enter the office."Captain Pierce, good to have you back." Colonel Kelsey salutes you quickly. "I've only been gone for a few days." You chuckle."And a lot's happened since then." Kelsey grunts. "First of all, the Navy apparently managed to nab an intact Fandance.""Ah, so that's why they've got SEALs running all around the place?" You ask."That's right. They're keeping it under tight lock and key until they can get some techs over to check it out."(cont)
>>36908062"I thought that was Sokolov's job?" "Hah. He was the first guy they asked, but he totally snubbed them in order to work on that new bird General Granger sent over. The XF-19 it was called? Anyways, he's been busy retrofitting it with a new COFFIN 2.0 system so it'll be ready for Laika to fly.""I see." You nod. "And the war in general?""The lines are starting to stabilize. We've trapped and encircled the majority of the Chinese offensive forces in central Korea and the IJN and IJA managed to finally seize Pyonyang. We're waiting for additional Army units to arrive to shore up our lines before we make a push to the original Korean border.""Sounds good." You nod. "So anything for us?""Not right now." Kelsey shakes his head. "But for now, we'll probably focusing on rear echelon duties. Civilian relief efforts and all. We've covered a lot of ground, but a lot of infrastructure was destroyed and we haven't fully secured it. Lots of small towns and villages in need.""Got it, sir." You nod. "So what do we do now?""You'll be on standby in Tokyo for the time being. The brass don't want you being sent to the frontline so soon after the medal ceremony.">I guess I can understand that.>Speaking frankly, sir, that's stupid.>Other
>>36908062we should get laika to come over.She could help with identifying parts of how the special systems of this modified fandance works.

>>36908201and then BOOM overlords in tokyo!
>>36908090>>Speaking frankly, sir, that's stupid."There is a need, as you said before. It is a waste to not meet it."
>>36908090>>36908132>>>Other>Perhaps we could send laika to help the techs on the fandance?yes please.let the merlin and laika meet
>>36908261....we should get some choco cakes then.
>>36908090>Frankly, sir, that's stupid, but I can understand it.
>>36908261>let the merlin and laika meetAre you insane? Weaponized cute in that quantity would destroy everything!
>>36908310Death by moe preferable to death by robo-stalin or martian.
>>36908310I could take it! cute does not work on me!
>>36908310And then some sick fucks would try to ship them.
>>36908090>>I guess I can understand that.And that is why American soldiers have historically hated getting the MOH while on duty, because the brass didn't want to risk them getting killed they would pull them away from the frontlines.
>>36908310Or will start misplaced 'my imoto/daughteru is better' arguments and settled with most idiotic race ever seen in US Military history.
>>36908347but merlin x chocolate cake OTPgive me the chocolate chocolate cake
>>36908352You already drew that.
>>36908351Same thing with any other soldier getting noticed. Leaders prefer them to be a "Morale Booster".
>>36908391I'll die happy if Merc canonize it.
>>36908310>Weaponized cute in that quantity would destroy everything!We must do this.
>>36908398Send him to the Witch Barracks as a "morale booster".
>>36908090"I guess I can understand that." You sigh. "But I still think it's pretty stupid.""It'll only be for a while, and we've hit a lull in the fighting, anyways." Kelsey shrugs. "Like I said, we're waiting on the Army to get off its ass and get their boots into Korea.""So I suppose we'll just be testing out Granger's new equipment in the meantime?""Seems like the best way to manage your time." Kelsey nods. "But maybe you can convince Sokolov to at least take a look at that Fandance. Damn squids won't stop pestering me over it.">Sure, I'll put some words in his ear.>Eh, the squids can wait.>Other
>>36908497>>Sure, I'll put some words in his ear.the faster its figured out the less a threat it poses

>>36908497>>Sure, I'll put some words in his ear.The meeting of the MCs awaits!
>>36908497>>Sure, I'll put some words in his ear.Also if he looks at the fandance he might get some ideas to use on the other plane.Reverse engineering is a thing.
>>36908497>Sure, I'll put some words in his ear.>>36908656I think it's more likely that Pierce will meet Merlin and she and Sokolov will nerd it our for a bit. Then Pierce will leave the room just as Frank walks in from another door.
>>36908497"Sure, I'll put some words in his ear." You nod. "Anything else?""Nope, that's all. You pretty much got free reign on the base as long as you're here." Kelsey says. "I'll call you in if anything comes up. Dismissed.""Thank you, sir." You salute and exit the office. You hop another ride to the hangar, where your flight crew is already back and hastily unpacking several newly arrived crates, while Bullseye tries to get his work done despite Nungesser hugging him from behind. Of course, Sokolov could be found digging into the guts of a sleek, brand new fighter. You're mighty impressed with how Granger was able to get that thing down here so fast. Meanwhile, Laika was also present, her eyes so wide with wonder you were afraid they'd fall out of their sockets."Sokky! Let's fly it! Let's fly it!" Laika whines."Just a second, Laika, I need to make some last minute calibrations!" Sokolov grumbles as you hear clanging from inside the cockpit. Finally, Sokolov pulls his head out from wherever it's been and finally sees you."Oh, Captain! You're finally back!""Yep." You nod. "I was kind of wondering if you could take a break from this bird for a bit and come check out the new Fandance.""Hmmmm, well, the major work is already done, so I guess I can leave it to my assistants to finish the rest." Sokolov nods. "You have a Vampire?!" Laika squeals as she zooms up to. She can't brake her wheelchair fast enough and it bumps into your leg. "Wherewherewhere?""Ha, all in due time." You say. "Let's wait for Sokolov, first."As you wait for the scientist to get his things ready, you wonder if you should bring an escort along. Sokolov's credentials alone should be enough to get you in, but you remember that SF types always did enjoy fucking with others, especially personnel from a different service branch. >Just go with Sokolov and Laika.>Better bring some backup with you.>Other
>>36908931>>Better bring some backup with you.
>>36908931>Better bring some backup with you.>Frank, meet my CO Pierce>Pierce, my brother Frank.
>>36908931>>Just go with Sokolov and Laika AND THE MEDAL
>>36909007What you want them to fuck with us even more?
>>36908931>Better bring some backup with you.
>>36908931>>Better bring some backup with you.Rex and Janice~
>>36908931>>Just go with Sokolov and Laika.>>Better bring some backup with you.I kinda want to see if Rex and Frank able to do Twin Banter.
>>36909007gotta bring janice and rex along.
>>36908931>Better bring some backup with you.Bring ALL OF THEM.
>>36908931>>Better bring some backup with youWe're probably gonna meet Merlin, we need the backup otherwise our heads will explode from terminal cute
>>36909002Bring Rex, fuck with BishopsBring the MoH too just to bypass SF bullshit
>>36909007May as well have Pierce show up carried in on a Palanquin at this rate.
>>36909110If our backup not collapsing first.
>>36908931>>Better bring some backup with you.Rex to screw with Fronk, MoH to screw with SF.
>>36909126>I AM A GENEROUS GOD
>>36909149>Meanwhile Kelsey is watching this whole incident from his window with a growing migraine.
>>36908931>>Better bring some backup with you.Rex, of course.
>>36908931Guys.Why are we not bringing Tarin as backup?She's in tight with the SEALs as was mention in the last SW'89BRING TARIN BACKUP
Idly curious...isn't it a bit meta-gamey to be bringing Rex just to fuck with Frank? Like all we know is "squids stole russkie jet". We've no idea if Frank is involved
>>36909149We know there were witches in the Battle of Thermopylae right? So would the movie 300 have muscular half naked witches?
>>36909269Muscular, yes. Half-naked - isn't that their default state of clothing?
>>36909297Now recall that scene where they're lying everywhere post romantic dinner and battle.
>>36909289Pretty sure topless will still net R rate/rank here, witches or no witches.
>>36909267Yep, but welcome to SWQ>>36909269odds are it would and it'd sell even more. what's better than badass spartans killing things? Having badass half naked hot spartan witches doing so.... and then the feels at the ending.
>>36908931>Bring Tarin.You think tarin will be seduced by the Frank?
>>36909422One sniff and she will know Frank has been contested by many side. Including Maman. She would know better.
>>36909422more like would Frank's witches be seduced by Pierce?
>>36909465So the possibility that Pierce is also a gnome still a viable one?
>>36909492No idea, I figured that Pierce might be a witch magnent as he's considerate, thoughtful, and managed to land a Grade AAA witch.
>>36909465Nah can't see it. Tarin I can kind of see since we didn't develop that deep a impression with her as Pierce?
>>36909511He is that. But that still does not rule out gnome powers. Oh I am fully admitting that he is not up to Frank's level of gnome, but few are.
>>36909330I think he meant bottom half.
>>36908931Well, you might as well come along with an escort. You take a look back into the hangar. Your flight crew looked to be pretty busy, so you didn't really want to bother them. Also, Rex appeared to be missing. You wonder where the hell he went off to. However, Janice and Tarin were present, so you might as well ask them to come along."Hey, Janice, Tarin, you mind tagging along with me, Sokolov, and Laika to check out a bird the Navy snagged?""Well, I suppose there's no reason not to." Janice smiles. "Sure!""Okay." Tarin shrugs.And so your little motley crew starts heading over the cordoned off Navy hangar. Janice pushed Laika along on her wheelchair, while Sokolov clutched a bag full of what you assumed were diagnostic tools. Meanwhile, you and Tarin bring up the rear. Of course, you see Navy SEALs begin converging in on you, and even a couple of tank witches. "I'll handle this." Tarin says, stepping forward. "Hey now, I think you chairforce are in the wrong neighborhood." One of the SEALs grunts."We're just escorting the scientist you've been requesting." Tarin says calmly. "Mhm. Well, the tech is cleared to pass, but the rest of you aren't." The SEAL grunts. "You're just all going to have to wait outside."(cont)
>>36909592"Really now?" Tarin says. Her voice and expression don't change, but you can tell Tarin was starting to shift into "YOU FUCKED UP" mode. You're about to step in when somebody else interrupts."You best be standin' down, Lieutenant." A dark skinned tank witch with a thick Cajun accent rolls in. "You don't be knowin' who you be messin' with.""Commander!" The SEAL snaps to attention. The way he straightens up indicates that it wasn't the sort of feigned respect most men showed to officers or witches. It was the sort of genuine respect reserved only for the truly loved and/or feared.Mostly feared."Brigitte?" Tarin blinks."Tarin!" Brigitte laughs.Both witches then grab each other in a powerful handshake. However, what should be a brief greeting starts to drag on, as both witches keep their grips, and you see that they're actually subtly arm wrestling each other.>Ask Tarin what's going on.>Just stay quiet and don't interrupt.>Other
>>36909624>Just stay quiet and don't interrupt
>>36909624I forgot to add that this is pretty much how it's going down.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItzslynRhwg
>>36909624>>Just stay quiet and don't interrupt.
>>36909624>>Just stay quiet and don't interrupt.....Damn, we don't bring popcorn with us.
>>36909624>>Just stay quiet and don't interrupt.Let's watch it play out with a huge grin slowly trying to get out.
>>36909624>>Just stay quiet and don't interrupt.Maman~Laika will probably goggle at the sight of a witch who can stalemate the dreaded Tarin.
>>36909624>Other"Ahem! Ladies, if we may move along? The good doctor's time is in high demand, and we have much to do."
>>36909624>Just stay quiet and don't interrupt.Kinda want to call out to the other SEAL "Ten on Tarin" or something... Nah.
>>36909624>>Just stay quiet and don't interrupt.Stay still. Their vision is based on movement
>>36909624>Snap a picture of this staredown, so that the moment may be remembered as "that time we almost all died".
Maman's speech seem to be more refined in PJs.In SW89, I had to reread several times before I understood it.
>>36909715Differences in writing style, of course. I can't really go full Cajun like Ghost can, and I've never been terribly fond of writing out accents.
>>36909624>Just stay quiet and don't interrupt.
>>36909764>Raikov chillingNice pun, Merc.
>>36909764So which one is Raikov?
>>36909892I'll pick the one with shotgun.
>>36909892the one thats not dead.
>>36909624You just decide to stay quiet and not interrupt this moment. You watch as both SF witches continue their titanic struggle, their only signs of exertion masked by Brigitte's cheerful smile and Tarin's blank stare."Yer arm be less noodly den before." Brigitte grunts."Like I said before, I don't like losing." Tarin says simply. Finally, both witches let go, massaging their no doubt ravaged wrists as they do so."How you and Maman be callin' that a tie?" "Whatever helps you sleep." Tarin shrugs."Tarin, you know this witch?" You finally scrape up the courage to speak."Hm, yes. Me and Brigitte used to work together from time to time." Tarin shrugs and then her eyes widen a bit. "Oh, I forgot. Captain, this is Commander Brigitte Laroux. US Navy SEALS. Brigitte, this is-""Maman been hearin' de stories." Brigitte chuckles and rolls closer to you, her face hovering right in front of yours. "Ye be more more handsome den de stories say, Captain Pierce.""Oho, what kind of stories?" Janice slips in between you and her, now in full territorial mode. She still had a cheerful smile on her face, but it was only barely masking KILLING INTENT."Our kind be a small and tightknit group." Brigitte chuckles. "Word be travelin' fast, and der ain't much dat gets by Maman's ears.""I see." Janice nods, her masked hostility now ebbing away, but not quite fully. "Maman be showin' ya de way, den." Brigitte waves you at you to follow her as her tank strikers squeal. "We already be gettin' someone to take a look at de plane, but she can always use anudder set o' eyes.""She talks funny!" Laika whispers to you."Dis be the way Maman always be talkin'." Brigitte says without even turning around. That causes Laika to squeak and clamp her hands over her mouth.>Were you the ones that got the Fandance?>You already have a tech looking at it?>So... and Tarin worked together, huh?>Other

>>36910210>>Were you the ones that got the Fandance?>So... and Tarin worked together, huh?
>>36910210>Were you the ones that got the Fandance?>OtherSo where is Frank Bishop at now?
>>36910395psssh, we are not supposed to know Fronk is the one who snatch the Fandance.Though i guess he is at least on bed rest now because Jess.
>>36910441Jess a shit.
>>36910441I hope that is not the case. I want to see Frank. If we're denied that because little sister then I will be mad.
>>36910451Couldn't agree more.
>>36910451JESS DID NOTHING WRONG
>>36910523Agreed she was happy to see her brother!
>>36907062>It also didn't help that Red had bought a Nintendo game system for Laika, which she had played all night on the last day, and she kept endlessly humming the tune to one of the games that she had been playing. Hell, she was still doing it now.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiuSCkprkZ0 [Embed]I fucking saw that Merc
>>36910531Whose ribs she may or may not have proceeded to break.
>>36910523OF COURSE JESS DIDN'T DO WONG, SHE DID KATSUMI.ONE IS CHINESE ONE IS JAPANESE.STOP GETTING YOUR ASIANS MIXED UP ANON.
>>36910523Are we still following this stupid joke?If so might as well blame anon for leaving Kyoko behind>>36910531Still a shit though
>>36910562>If so might as well blame anon for leaving Kyoko behindYes, I blame you for that.
>>36910562There is no joke.THERE IS ONLY WAIFU WAR.
>>36910210"So you were the ones that got the Fandance?" You ask as your group slowly heads over the hangar."Dat be right." Brigitte nods. "Not de easiest job, but not de hardest, eider.""Must've been tough." You whistle. "I can't imagine the Russians leaving those around unguarded.""Ha, Maman had a harder time keepin' de snow outta her undies!" Brigitte chortles. "It be a shame you weren't der, Tarin.""Tragic." She nods. "Seems like you learned how to do things without being babysat by me.""So, you and Tarin worked together, huh?" You say."Ha, Maman and Tarin, we be a real scary team." Brigitte grins. "Tarin be doin' de scouting wit her talent, and I be doin' de rest of de dark business."At this point, you've already reached the hangar. A pair of SEALs at the door salute you, or more specifically, Brigitte, and open the doors. Inside, you see a Fandance sitting inside, the sole occupant of the entire hangar. Several access panels and hatches were already popped, with various components already taken out and carefully laid out on the ground for closer analysis. You could see a pair of legs jutting out from one of the panels, and judging from the size, probably belonged to someone who couldn't be much older than Laika.Of course, Laika and Sokolov both take off to analyze the plane, or in Laika's case, ogle. Brigitte and Tarin stay behind near the door while Janice follows Laika to make sure she doesn't hurt herself.>Head for the Fandance.>Stick with Brigitte and Tarin.>Other

>>36910676>>36910722...w-w-what have I done... my unthinking post has spoiled imouto and daughteru... I'll go put myself in the brig now...
>>36910615You head over to the Fandance, though honestly, you weren't THAT impressed since you had already been able to see one up close. Granted, it had been shot up and sinking into the ocean, but you see it once, you've seen them all, right?What interested you more was the tech that was already examining the Fandance. Sokolov was busy studying the components that had already been pulled out, while Laika rolls over to where the tech was digging through the Fandance's guts and pokes her leg."Hey. Heeeeeeeeey." Laika says.You hear a loud, high pitched squeak, followed by a THUD as the tech undoubtedly banged her head against the Fandance's hull in surprise. She then slides out of the access hatch, and your suspicion that she was no older than Laika was confirmed."W-w-w-what did you do t-that for?" The tech wails."Hi! I'm Laika!" Laika says cheerfully as she holds out her hand, completely oblivious to the tech's alarm. "What's your name?""Ah, er, um," The tech stammers as she's obviously caught off guard. "S-Samantha... b-but you can call me Merlin.""OOOOOOOH! A callsign?! That means you're a pilot?!" Laika grabs both of Merlin's hands. "Ah, I'm um, n-not exactly...!" Merlin's face turns red as she's not sure how to react to Laika's straightforwardness. >Now you wish you had popcorn.>Better step in and put some space between them.>Other

>>36910942I picture it kinda like either of the criticality incidents with the demon core. It's a razor's edge before the cute goes prompt and gives everyone a lethal does, you know?
>>36910873>"Now that I think of it, have you ever got a callsign, Laika?"FUEL THE FIRE
>>36910873>>Now you wish you had popcorn.>>And InsulinThe funny thing is that Merlin's older than her in various ways.
Hey, regarding the 89er-verse, what exactly is the situation in the Middle East?>Now you wish you had popcorn.
>>36911005No-one's supposed to know she's the White Butterfly
>>36911028Same old shit but add witches I bet
>>36910873>>Now you wish you had popcorn.>>36910974Heartless!>>36911005I support getting her a call sign. Hummingbird, perhaps? Something hyper and loves sweets?
>>36911028Arabs are being incompetent at war as per usual, as far as we know.
>>36911005THIS.ADD THIS.>>36911030We need to give her a new one then.>>36911028And South East Asia too.Is Vietnam join in the fray too? or they just chillin?

CUTE AND CUTE ACCESSORIES
>>36911056Goddamnit, even more to add to the building suptg archive backlog.
>>36910873Man, now you wish you had a bucket of popcorn."Oh my, they look so cute together, don't they?" Janice chuckles."Mhm." You nod."I-I'm actually not a p-pilot!" Merlin stammers. "Well, t-technically I'm not...""Say WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!" Laika gasps. "I-I'm a r-radio intercept o-officer!" Merlin says. "I h-help the pilot fly the plane!""Oh. OH, So, like a copilot or something?""S-something like that...""So you can get a callsign, even if you don't actually FLY THE PLANE?!" Laika says incredulously."I-I guess so..."My god, you couldn't have seen two more polar opposites. A shy, bespectacled girl paired up with a loud, blunt, and straightforward one. "Willy!" Laika calls out to you. "I wanna callsign now!""Laika, I'm not sure that-""NOOOOOOOOOOOOW!" >Any suggestions for callsigns?
>>36911157>>Any suggestions for callsigns?Hummingbird is okay.
>>36911157And so it begins...
>>36911157Albatross. She is our lucky albatross>>36911136I just cleared my backlog and now I feel emptyMGNQSWQ89false dendriteprincess guardAce combat Cyber Idols Quest
>>36911157Banshee They are female specters that don't have legs and can rack up a huge death toll. Fitting.
>>36911179That's actually not half bad
>>36911157The Pilot Formerly known as Butterfly
>>36911179I want it!
>>36911177Princess guard is shit, saved you some time on the others.
>>36911177>AlbatrossSeconding. Doesn't hurt that I appriciate Monty Python, so will laugh whenever her callsign comes up.
>>36911157Hummingbird. Because it's cute and hyper, and also because it's surprisingly psycho towards very nearly anything else for those who want a psycho title for our little daughteru
>>36911224That was more a hemmingway reference than a monty python one. At least I think it's hemmingway.
>>36911177VMQ 1 & 2Magical Girl Hunter Quest
>>36911219That list was the stuff I finished reading/re-reading.>>36911263Fuck that's right I just finished those too. I think I've finished MGNQ 3 times at this point.
>>36911219Fuck u faggot ill fite u m8
>>36911263WMQ 1 is goodWMQ 2 is shit.
>>36911285Go read Zeonquest and Shadows of Zeon.
>>36911274I see someone just read Ribbon Warrior too.Too bad Te-Ke is kinda of shit in-game.
>>36911291And lose, yes, we know.
>>36911157Okay, so the choice seems to be a run between:>Banshee>Hummingbird
>>36911285>>36911291Shit is still shit. Immediately lost interest when guard guy lost his sword to blue haird asshole.
>>36911323>Hummingbird>>36911326It's a lot easier to not be mad when you are reading the archives. It was a pretty good plot twist but a dick move none the less.
>>36911303Zeonquest starts great and sucks once you go back into spaceJust like every other Gundam series>
>>36911219I've read PGQ up until about the tournament where you fight that border guard dude before I stopped, I just couldn't take the waifuwar bullshit any longer. It was a bit of a shame because archelon's quite talented at SOL writing but he really needed to put his foot down on the shitposters who were purely in it for whichever female character they were into.
>>36911343Also the fact female guard became a lesbian for maid, mage girl got shifted for princess and several other things I don't remember but got me annoyed.
>>36911323Whoops forgot my vote>Banshee
>>36911254Older reference than that. The albatross was named as the bird of good omen in Coleridge's Ryme of the Ancient Mariner.
>>36911323>BansheeIt fits really, Seeing she is 'Offically' Dead.
>>36911326It got better immediately after that.So I guess we're all better off that you waifuwarring faggots jumped ship.
>>36911367Not all characters of the opposite gender need to bow down to the MC and try to suck his/her dick upon meeting him/her.>>36911378That was it. I was thinking of that but thought Hemmingway for some reason.
>>36911388How do you think they Russians will react when they find out her death was highly exaggerated?
>>36911399Tried it but several things still bugged me, when my favorite character (female knight) ended up with the maid, mage girl got the shaft for the princess, several other things as well and well I wouldn't stand the border guard's POVI just couldn't stand it anymore.>>36911360Same here but I tried the other one of his story but it wasn't to my taste.
>>36911430Hopefully they will never find out.
>>36911413Totally understandable and that's fine but there were other reasons in the story and the whole border guard fight turned me off on the story
>>36911399That's the biggest thing that I hate about quests is how the waifuwars just poison the well so quickly.>>36911453Recently it's picked plot wise. Things are actually happening.
>>36911470it's picked up plot wise. herp
>>36911470RecentlyOn thread 222 last time I saw it on the board.I'm sorry, but if it picked up by that time, it's going to be a struggle to read and I binged read MGNQ took me about a few days straight.
>>36911323>BansheeLets do this.
>BansheThat doesn't sound like a cute name for Laika but that's just me.
>>36911323>>BansheeI have no idea what the significance behind these names are but I like the sound of it.
>>36911323>>HummingbirdThe other had too much dark/death for my taste
Think about it guys.Frank/Merlin uses Specter as their call sign, right?Laika can use Banshee to match up with it.
>>36911620You want to give our daughteru a dark and morbid name? Fluuuff! I'm disappointed in you!
>>36911620But Banshees aren't cute
>>36911620Isn't it Revenant? And i still prefer to give Laika something less dark as callsign.
>>36911620The flip between Revenant and WardogIt's not consistent
>>36911323"How about Banshee?" You suggest.Laika pauses in deep thought for a moment."I LIKE IT!" Laika says happily."W-wait, you're a pilot?" Merlin blinks."Yep yep!" Laika nods rapidly. "One of the best!""B-but how can you, without y-your legs?" Merlin asks."That's simple! I just plug into it here!" Laika brushes her hair aside to show Merlin her implant."Is that-" Merlin gasps as her eyes widen. "A VDNI implant? Y-you're one of the defectors!?!""Mmmmmmm, I guess you could say that." Laika shrugs. This time, it was Merlin being aggressive, as she lunges forward and grab's Laika by the shoulders."W-what's it like?! Do you f-feel what the plane does? C-can you really control it with your m-mind?!""Ah um, it's uh, kinda hard to explain." Laika says, her position now reversed. "It's like... you and the plane are one, you know? Like the plane's parts are all parts of your body.""I see..." Merlin says thoughtfully."Laika, it's time to go!" Sokolov says. "We need to test the XF-19 now!""Right, coming!" Laika chimes."X-XF-19?" Merlin asks."Oh yeah, it's this cool new plane this nice old man decided to give us!" Laika says happily. "C-can I come see?" "SURE!" Laika smiles. "I don't see why not!"(cont)
>>36911620Specter was just the call sign for the mission fluff, Revenant is their permanent call sign.
>>36911667The XF-19 is already waiting on the tarmac. Laika quickly gets changed into her specialized flightsuit and hops in as Merlin eagerly watches. The techs then shoo you all away as the plane's engines begin to power up. You and Janice head off closer to the hangar, where Sokolov has set up a small control center while Merlin moves off to a spot a bit further down the tarmac to get a better look at the plane. Finally, the clearances are granted, and the XF-19 begins to roll down the runway. The engines roar as the experimental plane takes off. Two F-16s follow close behind as chase planes."All right, Laika-" Sokolov says."Banshee." Laika corrects him."Okay, Banshee." Sokolov sighs. "Let's take it slow and easy. Do some basic maneuvering."You see the XF-19 do a few turns, but notice the plane shudder and shake as it does so. "Banshee, you're losing too much altitude in each turn!" Sokolov warns. "I know!" Laika grunts. "It's this plane.... it just won't listen to me! It's like... it's like it keeps fighting my inputs!"You see the XF-19 level out in the air, though it's still a bit wobbly, even in level flight. You notice the F-16s drop back a little further."I think... I think I found the problem." Laika says. "It's the flight computer!""Are you sure?" Sokolov blinks."Yeah... yeah I'm sure." Laika says. "I'm turning it off.""No! Wait! We have no idea what will happen!" Sokolov cries then turns to you.>Tell Laika not to do it.>Trust Laika's instincts.>Other
>>36911639Either that or Banshee from X-Man. Which ever works for you.Still what she is driving is a weapon of war.>>36911651>>36911656Oh, you might be right there. Close enough though.
>>36911680>Trust Laika's instincts.
>>36911667>A VDNI implant?BLAKE ELEISON
>>36911667>Trust Laika's instinctsGirl ain't normal, she'll pull through
>>36911680>>Tell Laika not to do it.
>>36911680>>Trust Laika's instincts.Oh boy I sure hope the American COFFIN system came with an ejector seat.
>>36911680>>Trust Laika's instincts.she has an ejection seat if need be
>>36911680>Tell Laika not to do it."Land first, THEN mess around with your controls."
>>36911680>USE THE FORCE LAIKAI hope we've showed her that movie by now
>>36911680>>Trust Laika's instincts.
>>36911680>>Trust Laika's instincts.Also: That Merlin HHHNNNGGGHHH~>>36911698Indeed, those who fight to preserve technology and knowledge are the grandest crusaders of all!
>>36911671Also that's more Frank than Merlin. Oh well leave it to /tg/ to go sticking cute daughters with butcher names.
>>36911744It's what I love about SWQ and it's many spinoffs.
>>36911800I was not looking forward to the second part of that I was in it for the mayhem. We need more Frank in this.
>>36911680>Tell Laika not to do it.Let's try it back on the ground, or at least get some more altitude before doing something that could wreck the plane.
>>36911800Some like the balance of things, not just all /k/ all the time.
>>36911680>>OtherTell her to get some more altitude before she attempts that. See if we could get one of the witches to go up with her.
>>36911680"Let's trust Laika on this." You say."A-all right." Sokolov nods."Turning off flight computer... now." Laika comments. Suddenly, the XF-19's flights seems to be much smoother. That is, until it literally falls out of the sky. However, rather than panic, you get the impression that Laika was still in full control. The XF-19 dives down to the ground until the last second, when it goes nose up so that it was perpendicular to the ground and its thrust vectored engines roar. And amazingly enough, the plane just HOVERS there, nose pointed to the sky as the engines kick up clouds of dirt and dust. You can't imagine the level of control it would take to tun the engine thrust to perfectly counter the plane's weight, but Laika somehow manages it.(cont)
>>36911992"See? I was right!" Laika giggles as the engines roar, putting the XF-19 from a hover into a powerclimb in a blink of an eye.http://youtu.be/UZFn96KWYBA?t=44sThe next few minutes are an absolute show of impossibly tight turns and flips you didn't think were possible in any plane, a testament to the XF-19s engineering combined with Laika's control abilities. All the while, you can hear her laughing over the radio like a kid in a candy store.You manage to pry your eyes away from the scene long enough to see that someone else has joined Merlin in watching the show. You can immediately tell that he's a Navy flier, no doubt Merlin's pilot. While Merlin has a look of utter fascination on her face, you can tell with some amusement that the pilot in question was trying very hard not to look impressed.Wait a minute. You narrow your eyes at the pilot. Have you seen him somewhere before...?Suddenly, your train of thought is broken when you hear the roar of the XF-19's engines. You turn back to see Laika diving at the ground, pulling up at the last second and performing a low altitude flight, and by low, you mean you could actually reach up and touch the plane if you were crazy enough to try it.Oh, and Laika was doing it upside down, too.And you've never heard her be more happy. "This is the one!" She laughs. "This is the one I want to keep!">And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget that a special Christmas edition of Cyberpunk Idols is this Wednesday, with Ace Combat on Friday and our regular Cyberpunk Idol thread on Saturday!
>>36911992laika plsdon't give daddy and mommy a heart attack.
>>36912007Frank and Pierce walk into a bar soon? Maybe?
>>36912007....Dammit, why did you wait for Frank to show up in the last minute.
>>36912007Thanks boss.And oh lookie, you giving Fronk some idea.Well done, Laika. Well done.
>>36912007Thanks for the fun with based Laika, Merc!>Wait a minute. You narrow your eyes at the pilot. Have you seen him somewhere before...?Ahaha, Frooonk!
>>36912007Thanks for the run Merc, See ya next time.
>>36912007>Suddenly, Russians Attack>Laika/Fronk Tagteam>Entire Far East theater shits it's pants
>>36912048too bad we decided it would be better if Laika only got involved as recon, without armaments.Still, if anyone could ram another combat aircraft with a modern fighter and get away with it as a kill rather than suicide...
>>36912079She carries self-defence armaments on the Eagle, I expect this'll have them too.
So what would've happened if we didn't go through proper procedure, and yanked Laika out when we rescued her from a watery grave?Would the BAD END be her still being part of the plane as we completely sever the link?
So....who's better Laika or Frank?
>>36912155brain damaged daughteru maybe
>>36912182For now Laika lead the race.We'll see if Frank will close the gap.
>>36912276>Frank not leading Laika by football pitches.Mangafag, have you ever read SW89 thread? Like, even once? You are aware of some of the shit Frank has pulled with a fighter, right?
>>36912276I don't know maybe with airshow stunts maybe but after Berlin, kind of hard to top that.Then again Laika doesn't get nearly killed after what Frank pulls.
>>36912322She does get blown the hell out of the sky though, courtesy of the Japanese Imperial Guard.
>>36912294I don't recall Frank ever try that hovering Yukikaze trick. Yet.>>36912322Yet.I just see a clip of VF-21 fighting the X9-Ghost and for some reason, i see Frank in Guld's place.
>>36912354Didn't he do some crazy shit with Slider though?That should count for something?
>>36912354Frank's duel with young spawn. He flies his plane BACKWARDS to get a bead on her.
>>36912368I need to re-read that part again later before i can comment.>>36912373Make it two.
>>36912381Make it two what exactly?
>>36912403I need to re-read two thread now.
>>36912403Frank's aerial exploits.>>36912381Also Mangafag, do you have stuff prepared for SW89 or you only had enough time for PJs?
>>36912429If i am not distracted with WT or WoT until SW'89 , I'll draw some art involving Big Three and Konnie.
>>36912466Christmas with Frank yay!Having to spend it with Jess....Boooo!
>>36912518Jess ruins everything.
>>36912565She ruins haremfags dreams, which are the best dreams to ruin.
>>36912768Not just haremfags dreams anon, she ruins everything.
>>36912783It's a shame you're so wrong.
>>36912795I honestly wish I was, anon.
>>36912817I wish I was wrong that about people being buttflustered over a shitty threesome getting broken up as well.
>>36912768So you must love Jess then.Frankly her personality is annoying, her love advice kind of makes it worse.
>>36912857I think how it was handled as well, Feelthy's snippet doesn't help her personality as well.
>>36912901He's probably given up on his side story because so many people hate it.
>>36914576the side story was actually pretty damn good, was actually fun reading about Jess for once
>>36914576Or it could just be that he's too busy to properly work on it right now.I still don't get all the vitriolic hate against Jess.
>>36914712She broke up a harem and that triggered some anons.
>>36914744someone clearly didn't read anything at allshe didn't try to break up a harem, she was trying to make one, and was interfering in Rex's relationship and being annoying about it
>>36914810I suppose they had their Incestual Lolicon fantasies shattered by seeing how little sisters *actually* act.
>>36914810It was a fair bit more than that, was just correcting that anon who was trying to commentate while clearly not even knowing anything about the situation.
>>36914872What is the fair bit more that these nerds care about? Because they make it sound like she's tried to kill Frank or something.Is it that she's a lesbian?
>>36914887Go and read the threads she's in because I'm not going to regurgitate 4+ threads worth of content for you.
>>36914898I have read the threads though, and I don't think she did anything wrong except almost causing a threesome between Rex, Euclid, and Ghost.Mind you, the 'relationship' with Ghost wasn't even a set thing until he was told to confront both girls about it, and then he chose to be with Ghost, much to Euclid's disappointment.I think the real answer is that Anon doesn't like it when 'pairings' OR 'harems' are threatened in any way.
>>36914956>Mind you, the 'relationship' with Ghost wasn't even a set thing until he was told to confront both girls about itIt was a thing long before then, it was a thing ever since they spent their R&R time in London and Scotland months ago.
>>36915028It was barely mentioned and even Rex didn't even seem to be taking it serious until he was told to confront the girls about it. Ghost basically had yet another puppy-love crush on a guy who apparently has 'em lining up to get 'rescued'. He barely contacted her and they'd been separated for weeks before she just showed up in Japan, and we'd already had threads where Euclid was doing the typical Japanese 'romance' bullshit where he accidentally walks in on her naked and she punches him because LOL SO TSUN.I still don't see how any of this explains the Jess hate, outside of those people projecting personal complexes.
>>36915137>nd we'd already had threads where Euclid was doing the typical Japanese 'romance' bullshit where he accidentally walks in on her naked and she punches him because LOL SO TSUN.And that somehow means anything? Ghost and Rex were an item long before then and your blind and delusional if you can't see it.
