However, even though the mission was a success, it didn't end the conflict between Kasna and Biala. Not even close. With their immediate concern handled, the major nations dusted off their hands and returned home, content to let the two nations continue to bleed each other dry. It wasn't their problem, after all. >And it isn't yours, either.>It kind of bothered you, actually.>Other
>>37578607>It kind of bothered you, actually.Dick move, Coalition, dick move.
>>37578607>It kind of bothered you, actually.
>>37578607>Other>It isn't your problem, but it might be eventually, which kind of bothered you.
>>37578607>It kind of bothered you, actually.Something is up...
>>37578607>>It kind of bothered you, actually.
>>37578607>It kind of bothered you, actually.It rustled Karla's jimmies, oh yes it did.Should I still call this best night of the week...?
So guys, Flanker or Eagle, and which variants should we aim for?Personally I would be happy with either, though I think I like the Flanker a bit more because muh Terminator, but an Eagle a fine too, though it would clash when we go to parties with our squadmates.
>>37578684I say go with the SU series. We need more AC protags with Russian stuff. Not to mention if we get a SU-34, we get a toilet and a galley as well as room to move and lie down!
>>37578684I'm with you on dat 37 but either is fine
>>37578684Bro, dick move.Don't stoke the fires this early in the thread man.
>>37578706I'm tempted to get a Fullback later on when we are married to Jaeger, just so we can fly around together.
>>37578607>It kind of bothered you, actually.This is what led to Belka being what it is today.
>>37578684either is fine.I believe /tg/ can discuss this with civil tone and absolutely with no name-calling at all.
>>37578684For me it depends on how each plane is, their stats and pros and cons over each other, hopefully Merc will actually give us access to that stuff when we inquire about getting our new plane.It fucks fat dicks to just be buying blind.
>>37578706Identify yourself! Otherwise I'll sic big O on you.Are you Pixel, Mudhen, or some new drawfiend?
>>37578759None, just throwing out a concept idea that couldn't get out of my head. I actually did all of this on Microsoft Word 2013....Anyways, the cards on the back are supposed to have either suits or our flight's individual emblems.
>>37578607>It kind of bothered you, actually.>>37578684Honestly? Terminator's a good one to pick.SU-47 STRONK
>>37578607>And it isn't yours, either.We're a mercenary, and people will always kill each other.
>>37578607>>And it isn't yours, either.>>37578684Su-27 A SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT
>>37578824>SU-47 STRONKYou mean the 37? because the Berkut is a flaming piece of shit, and at that tier we would be saving up for glorious Widow-chan
>>37578607I read through the archives this week and ACQ is great, thanks mercy.And Karla is the best.
>>37578759>>37578774But if anything, I'm just a phony who just discovered how to modify images on Word '13 less than a day ago.
>>37578684Flanker for sure.Dat eventual SU-37.
>>37578774This looks cool man.To bad pixelfag wont be around today. I bet he'll like it.Also, good work getting it done in Word. The four separate suits are a nice touch.>KAMEN RIDER BLADE INTENSIFIES
>>37578741>This is what led to Belka being what it is today.No, if anything, it was a desire to mess in the internal affairs of neighbors that led to it. Staying out of neighbors' business would have kept Belka from starting wars.
>>37578851It's a joke. Terminator's best for us.
Hypothetically speaking, let's say Belka calls and Karla answers.But how the hell do we break the news to her mom? It's one thing to tell her that Karla secretly was a merc for the past few months and thrown into some pretty life threatening situations (i.e. Solo Wing Incident, Nimbus, etc.). However it's another thing to tell her that Karla's now fighting for Belka, under the government that her mother doesn't trust even after the Belkan War ended.
>>37578868See >>37578875 bro.And will you continue to throw other ideas in the pile?
>>37578875>To bad pixelfag wont be around todaySomething is up?
>>37578915I don't want to answer. I want to go full Pixy.
>>37578915>and Karla answers.Except she won't.
>>37578919Probably, but we'll see what happens.
>>37578915She would be like "Hey mom, take uncle and get out of Belka because I'm about to blow up the capital."
>>37578944She probably won't, but if the world goes crazy and somebody invades Belka first for a change I imagine she might
>>37578933I think he's got family commitments to take to, or something.He said as such in the #swq channel.>>37578950Looking forward to it! Always good to see more drawfiends with great ideas.
>>37578684I'm voting for the Flanker over the eagle, especially since we don't particularly like the people who flew them. But I want to know how much a Super Flanker would cost.
>>37579040I don't think Karla hates Cipher, she was too young for that. Maybe a little disdain for making her country lose but she probably admires the hell out of his piloting ability.
>>37579101But still Dad flew a Flanker. We should add a small patch of orange and black tiger stripe onto the Valkyrie pattern, or a single tiger stripe feather within the pattern.
>>37579040But Karla has already made her disdain of Yuke designs known in-character.
>>37579144Nah that's dads. We should be unique. Paint jobs I mean. I'm down for a Flanker to get a 37
>>37579157>mig a shit therefore SU a shit tooshe made her disdains about a specific plane with Yuke origins known, and there is a massive difference between their gen 1 and 2 plans and their gen 4 planes.and her father flew a Flanker, that has to mean something to her
>>37579167He meant we should have like a single feather of our Valkyrie paint job painted like dad's camo, as a tribute to him.
>>37579144>>37579176In other hand, she only know recently that her pops flew flanker so she might have no particular feeling for flankers.
>>37578607It kind of bothered you, actually. You couldn't help but feel that you left a job half finished. Not only were the two nations still fighting pointlessly, but all those refugees were still trapped in the DMZ, unable to return home. You kind of know what it's like to be cut off from your home, and you wouldn't wish that on anyone.Regardless, there wasn't much you could do about it now. You were just a simple mercenary that was part of a PMC.Not like you could fly off there on your own and end the war by yourself, right? That was just freaking silly.Well, you might as well start figuring out what to do for the day. There currently weren't any active missions so you were kind of free to do what you wanted today.>Go hang out with your squadron.>See if Samantha has any important news.>You should talk to your Mom and Uncle.>Go tease Jager a bit.>Check out the shop>Other

>>37579209>Check out the shop>>37579253We have 27300 at the moment. The Flanker costs 30k. Are we going to trade in our current plane?
>>37579209>Go tease Jager a bit
>>37579341yep, we're trading up
>>37579341Wait another mission, I think. The F-16 is too sexy to give away.
>>37579363Plus the stock Flanker, being an air superiority fighter, is gonna be mediocre at best when dealing with ground targets until we upgrade it into a Strike Flanker or whatever, and that's gonna cost a LOT.
>>37579363>>37579393>>37579341Not to mention that it's always nice to have a Back Up plane just in case something happens.
So about our plans to buy a Biafra Baby
>>37579412>just in case something happens.Like our base is under surprise attack and some rookie thinks its time to shine.But i don't object if we keep Falcon if we upgrade into Flanker.
>>37579444it will be a wedding present to us when we get hitched to Jaeger
>>37579444We could probably buy it for less than a starter plane. Hell, it would probably cost less than a Korean War era jet.
>>37579444Leave it to Jager, one of this day he'll loot one for us.
>>37579474>>37579469>>37579461I'm glad you guys respect the awesomeness that is THAT plane.
>>37579474I kind of want to get a Caribou to be our mobile home with Jager

>>37579623Shamrock was doing high-risk recon, not a kamikaze attack.
>>37579209Well, it's been a while since you've seen Jager. Perhaps it's time to go pester him for a bit! The first place you check is the training grounds, but you just see regular Artemis grunts out there. You check the on base tavern, but it was far too early for anybody to be hanging out in there. On a whim, you decide to check out the firing range, and sure enough, you see Jager and Tarin at the end practicing their marksmanship. Seems like Jager was coaching his subordinate on proper shooting technique, but from the looks of it, he was kind of wasting his time. She was practically demolishing the targets left and right. You're polite enough to wait for them to finish before approaching them."Hey there, Jager." You grin as you step in. "Busy as always, I see.""Don't you have planes to fly?" He raises an eyebrow."Oh, come on, no need to be so grumpy!" You smile. "I just wanted to see how you were doing, that's all!""Hmph, well, you might not be busy, but I kind of am." Jager sighs. "Unless you want a lesson?">I already know a thing or two about guns.>I'd love a lesson!>Maybe another time.>Other

>>37579765>I'd love a lesson!Never know when we might have to eject, save a helicopter team, evade pursuers and then ambush them.
>>37579737New stupid theory: Lara is Garuda 1.
>>37579829But that would mean that whenever she gave out a command....Tangiently, it's nice they updated the COFFIN.
>>37579765>>I'd love a lesson!>>37579787ask him to teach us how to use long rifle first... preferably laying down...
>>37579888Hope he rolls 2 20s
>>37579923And we'll roll a 1.
>>37579829Hmm... Wasnt it Lara that even mentioned she has experience with CFA-44's? Could it be that she fought Pasternak?
>>37579873I can just see Lara cheerfully ordering allied assault down on a single ace pilot. Though if she was Garuda 1 it'd probably end up something like this: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3925241/1/The-Ultimate-Ace
>>37580034Yeah, she probably did.
>>37579765>I already know a thing or two about Guns.
>>37580034She was at the Liberation of Gracemeria.
>>37580034The other pilots were fighting alongside Talisman against Pasternak, so of course.
>>37580034>>37580055Well technically every Emmerian pilot in the skies that afternoon fought Pasternak. It was probably like a modern version of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEQhzuc6Yoo Around the 11 minute mark and beyond.

>>37579765"I'd love a lesson!" You say cheerfully. "Come on, show me!""A-all right." Jager sighs, apparently not expecting this answer."What about me?" Tarin asks curiously."I... don't think you need any more instruction." Jager points to the target, with all of the shots hitting dead center."Okay, come on!" You grin."Right, right. I suppose they at least taught you the basics when you enlisted?""I know which way to point the long end, if that's what you mean." You grin.Jager just gives you a look, unsure of whether the innuendo was intentional or not. "All right, just hold it both hands like that, keep your feet apart, and straighten out your arms, just like that." Jager says as she shifts your limbs around into a proper firing position. "This will all ensure proper accuracy. You think you can hold this stance?">Yeah, I can handle myself.>I don't know. I might need a bit of "help"~.>Other

>>37580598She didn't have a class, bro. Do bosses have classes?Go back and actually read VMQ.
>>37580413You fire off the entire magazine into the target. Never once did your aim falter or deviate, and even from here, you can tell you got a tight grouping in the center of the target."Not bad." Jager whistles. "So, tell me the truth. Is this really the first time since basic that you've used a gun?">It is. Beginner's luck, I guess?>Ha, you got me. I do practice from time to time.>Other
>>37580598>I was talking about her previous appearance in another merc quest bruh.Since Karla isn't royalty in this quest, it's safe to say he was talking about the same quest.>>37580621>Do bosses have classes?Kinda, Bosses are a class unto themselves.

>>37580630>Ha, you got me. I do practice from time to time.
>>37580681>Bullets are quite expensive you know."Only if you're a poorfag firing weird calibers and don't handload.
>>37580681Wouldn't there be surplus ammo and weapons with the wars going left and right?
>>37580752If the countries don't sell milsurp or allow importation...
>>37580681Then she'd probably have higher evasion and defense stats.Also, I think she'll have a plethora of offensive Potentials and no support ones, like Ammo Refill or Act Again.
>>37580630>>Ha, you got me. I do practice from time to time.
>>37580752From what I can tell, in Mercverse, Estovakia losing the war on Emmeria caused an economic collapse bad enough to facilitate exporting ALL their military technology. If they felt the need to sell CFA-44s and Nimbus missiles, they probably have quite a large amount of mundane surplus that they're funneling into the market. Basically the Strangereal equivalent of Russian surplus.>>37580764Artemis exists as a separate international entity, I'm going to assume they don't buy their arms from civilian channels.
>>37580630>"I'm a woman of many talents Jaeger."
Man, I kinda feel bad. I have no idea if Tarin actually likes Jaegar but considering how often she loses in Merc's other stuff I'd feel kinda bad if Karla got to him first.
>>37580937>Artemis exists as a separate international entity, I'm going to assume they don't buy their arms from civilian channels.PMC's do in the real world, why wouldn't they?Hell, there are barges sitting floating in the Indian Ocean where PMC's can rent out guns and ordinance.
>>37580937We were a private citizen for a very long time. Still are, technically. Unless we purchase through the company, which isn't always allowed, then it is still an issue.

>>37580992I love Kuudere though, I hope Tarin wins a bowl if we were a Male MC or we take control of Tarin
>>37580630"Ha, you got me. I do practice from time to time." You smile as you twirl the handgun like a gunslinger and place it on the counter. "Never knew when you need to use one, right?""Having more skills doesn't hurt." Jager nods in agreement, his eyes communicating a newfound respect. "Still, your technique could use a bit of cleaning up. If you want, we can always arrange for extra lessons.""Heh, private lessons?" You grin."If you're that self conscious about your skill, sure." Jager shrugs.Ooooooh, that was a good one, you'll have to give him that. "Anyways, I need to run some inventory, and I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want to stick around for that." Jager picks up the handgun and safely holsters it away.

>>37581017You decide it's time to catch up with Mom and Uncle. It's felt like AGES since you've last had a real talk with them. As far as Mom knew, you were still flying for the airline, but who know how long that lie was going to hold up. She could be an infinitely nosy woman, after all. Meanwhile, your Uncle was chasing down the new lead Altman had given you, and he was trying to track down any survivors of Euphrates Squadron.

>>37581546"Oh, nothing much." You laugh nervously. "What, I can't check in on you from time to time?""No need to be so defensive about it." Mom laughs. "In either case, I'm glad you called! Giles has been coming by quite often these days, and... and I think he wants to go all the way!"What? WHAT? Oh god. Oh nonononnononono. That is NOT something you want to be imagining in you head. At first you were against the idea of Mom remarrying because you didn't want a "replacement Dad", and then gave you the "talk" and your poor little innocent mind was never the same since.>Th-that's wonderful.>NOOOOOOOOOPE>Other

Karla was innocent?
>>37581870Yes.Emphasis on WAS.
>>37581870When she was a wee child, yes.
>>37581870>Karla was innocent?So she believes.
inb4 Mom start asking for grandchild
>>37581756"Th-that's wonderful." You force yourself to sound happy. "I'm sure he's a very nice m-man!'"Oh, he's simply wonderful!" Mom says dreamily. "Those ABS, and the things he can do with his hands..."OKAY, time to change the subject!"So, uh, how's the neighborhood been treating you? Haven't been getting any pranks or anything, are you?"For the two of you, "pranks" was just a euphemism for anti-Belkan harassment, something that you experienced all too much when you were young. "Oh no, it's been rather quiet lately. Nothing out of the ordinary!" Mom assures you. "And you? How has the airline been treating you?"Well, now was the moment of truth. It was time to either nut up or shut up...>Nut up.>Shut up.>Other
>>37581973>Nut up.Also mention Jaeger to soften the blow
>>37581973>>Nut up.Telling the truth is kinda like pulling off a band-aid.>>37581987I'd support this.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>37581973>>Nut up.
>>37581973>Nut up.We owe her this much. She'll be upset, but when it comes down to it, best that she learn directly from us about it rather than some other person.It might even help us at some point in the future slip in a bit about us thinking that maaaaaaybe Dad is still out there, even if we suspect we were seeing things.
>>37581973>Fess up.>Brace for feels.>Brace for deathflags>Brace for AGM-65 impact
>>37581973>Nut up.>Other"Okay I guess good and bad things have been happening. I've got good co-workers, but the rival companies are mean. They even fired burst missiles at us the other day. Oh! but I found someone myself recently.

>>37581987Let's not, we haven't even gotten his number yet, and we don't know how much Karla's mom would want to know.
>>37582032I like this
>>37581973"Um, Mom, I have to tell you the truth." You sigh. "I'm actually not working with the airline anymore.""Huh? What?" Mom asks curiously. "TherewasthisonetimeIgotofferedtoflyafighterplanesoofcourseItookitnowI'mflyingforArtemisandohIwasalmostshotdownseveraltimesnowokay." You say extremely quickly."Karla, Karla! Breathe!" Mom says, now sounding concerned. "I didn't hear a thing you said!""Okay, okay!" You take a deep breath, your heart pounding faster than it ever did. Christ, you dodged fucking missiles in a calmer state than this! "I'm working for a PMC now. I'm... uh... flying fighter planes again.""What what WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!??!" Mom screams though the phone. "WHY WOULD YOU DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT! YOU'LL DIE!""I'm sorry, Mom, I can't really explain it." You sigh. "It's just.... I can't just leave it behind. I don't feel complete without it...""Ugh, you sound just like your father..." Mom grunts. "I'm coming down there first thing in the morning-""Mom, that's not necessary, really! I'm a big girl!" You try to assure her. "And uh... I met a guy.""Ooooooooh~?" Mom's tone suddenly changes from angry to intrigued. "You have a boyfriend?!"You're now wondering if blurting that out was a good idea or not.>Hahaha, did I say that? >Not exactly...>Totally>Other
>>37582233>>Hahaha, did I say that?
>>37582233>Not exactly...We're getting there, alright?
>>37582233>>Not exactly...Well, we are close, or at least getting there.

>>37582233>Totally!>.....Not Exactly.>....>I can use some advice.
>>37582233>>Not exactly..."Well, i still working on it but so far so good... This one is one fine speciment and i don't want to make him run away because i am too hasty."

>>37582233>Ask for advice. Distract her, Distract her.I kind of want to see Karla lose SAN points.
>>37582282Also seconding this, we need some comradery here
>>37582233"Um, not exactly..." You say sheepishly. "I'm kinda working on it, but, uh... you don't happen to have any advice, do you?"You know it was a bad idea, but at this point you were willing to do anything to deflect Mom's anger away from you."Oh, well, okay... hm.... I'm not too sure how you young people handle things nowadays..." Mom responds. "Did you get a good look at his penis? Do you know how big it is?""Okay, I'm hanging up now, Mom." You grunt."Wait! Wait!" Mom says hurriedly. "I actually don't really know what to tell you. I wish I could tell you what I learned from your father, but... well... it just sort of HAPPENED. I can't really explain it.""It's okay, Mom, I wasn't expecting a satisfying answer. In more ways than one." You sigh and check your watch. "Anyways, I need to go. I'll call you later, okay?""Fine." Mom sighs, sounding more tired than angry. "Just... be careful, okay? I already lost your father. I don't even want to think of what would happen if I lost you...">Tell her Dad might still be alive.>Don't say anything just yet.>Other
>>37582398>>Don't say anything just yet.
>>37582398>Don't say anything just yet.We don't even know if we can actually confirm what we saw.
>>37582398>Don't say anything just yet.pff, mom pls
>>37582398>>Don't say anything just yet.We have no proof. I guess Karla is more innocent at least compared to her mom
>>37582398>>Don't say anything just yet.Until we confirm it at least.
>>37582398>Don't say anything just yet.SHE CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!at least not yet.>Did you get a good look at his pOnOs?... You lost me.Also Mrs. Weiss confirmed for LEWDS
>>37582398>Don't say anything just yet.
>>37582398>Don't say anything just yet.All we have to go on right now are stress hallucinations. We should get a little more evidence before bringing it up.
>>37582443And some confirmation from Uncle that it wouldn't be COMPLETELY crazy if they were true.But yeah, nothing concrete. I'm sure Dad will understand, if he's still out there.
Calling it now.Mrs. Weiss is an M. And she likes it dry.
>>37582398>Don't say anything just yet.It's unfortunate we have no proof one way or the other. If we had something, I'd be all for telling her, or at least implying that something might be fishy.Until we have something more concrete, we'll have to consider it some sort of vision or trick of the mind due to combat stress.
>>37582398>"Oh, well, okay... hm.... I'm not too sure how you young people handle things nowadays..." Mom responds. "Did you get a good look at his penis? Do you know how big is?"Well, now we know where Karla gets it from.>Don't say anything just yet
>>37582471So is daughter like mother?>>37582476Oh no, Compare to her mom, Karla is sweet and innocent.Worse she did is a couple of off-colored innuendos, mom talks about hands and penises to her daughter.Her version of the talk is probably giving detailed information of her escapades.
>>37582502>Her version of the talk is probably giving detailed information of her escapades.In a complete deadpan Belkan style.
>>37582514She seems to be the passionate sort of Belkan.
>>37582502Nah. Karla a pure. pure vanilla, that is. Like holding hands and such.Adding to that...Mrs. Wise likes roleplay. And to be "disciplined"
>>37582398"Don't worry Mom, I'll be careful." You assure her. "I promise."You ultimately do not decide to tell her the possibility that Dad might still be alive. You're still not sure of what to think about that "event", and you didn't really have any hard proof of it, anyways."Alright, I have to go." You say. "I love you, Karla.""I love you too, Mom." You say as you hang up the phone. You take a very deep breath. That was way more emotionally exhausting than you thought it would be. You wait for a few minutes before dialing in your Uncle's number, but pause when you hear a commotion going on outside.>Continue to call Uncle.>Go see what the commotion is.>Other
>>37582530In their heart of hearts, the stoicism is just a cover for how lewd Belkans are.
>>37582563>>Go see what the commotion is
>>37582563>>Go see what the commotion is.
>>37582563>Go see what the commotion is.>>37582568So they're quick to recognize lewdness?
>>37582563>Go see what the commotion isMystery box?
>>37582568Nah it's a shell. I'm sure Miss. Weiss was once like Karla who like anon pointed out to be >>37582559But once you melt a Belkain's shell you get well....Miss.Weiss now.
>>37582563>Go see what the commotion is.
>>37582563>Go see what the commotion is.OH SHITIT'S.....THE NIGHTMARE OF SOLOMON
>>37582398>"Did you get a good look at his penis? Do you know how big it is?"I think the funniest thing about this is that I recall Karla wondering the same thing in a prior thread.>You haven't even seen him naked yetLike mother like daughter
>>37582563>Go see what the commotion is.We probably will get distracted from our phonecall by whatever is going on, may as well see what it is before talking to Uncle.
>>37582563>Go see what the commotion is.>>37582587Mystery box.
>>37582653Well, you know the OTHER Nightmare of Solomon, right anon?>SOLOMON YO... WATASHI WAS KAETTE KITA!!!>Nuclear Cleansing Intensifies
>>37582697If I'm not mistaken, that's the Kancolle version of IJN Yuudachi.The game devs decided to throw the line "Nightmare of Solomon" because of her actions in the Solomon Islands back in WW2.
>>37582697It's the nightmare of Solomon.
>>37582732>>37582734Oh , that Yuudachi. I had an inkling it was kancolle, but whatever.
>>37582734You know, I'd like to actually see Anavel Gato and Yuudachi face off for the title of Nightmare of Solomon, SRW Kallen-vs-Kamina style.>You were merely an inheritor of the title, Oldtype Earthnoid scum!>Oh, but I can make it sound cuter, you know~!
>>37582784You forgot to add the poi
>>37582814What can I say, I don't follow Kancolle.
>>37582563You decide to put the call on hold and you head outside to see what all the commotion is. You can immediately see a rather large crowd gathering at the runway, mostly base personnel. However, the presence of a convoy of black limousines and sedans, as well as a small army of men in suits, indicate to you that guys from Corporate were present. Your eyes hone in on Samantha, talking with some suits. Treister is also present, though he doesn't seem to be mingling with the corporate guys, probably for good reason."Hey, Samantha, what's going on?" You ask as you walk over."What, you didn't hear?" Samantha blinks. "Jonathon Irons himself from Atlas Corporation is coming in for a visit.""Wait, what?" You blink. From what you remember, Atlas was the PMC the Butterflies flew for, and from your general knowledge, was one of the largest and most powerful PMCs in the world right now. What were they doing coming down here?"Yep. Apparently, he was impressed with our performance and is coming down to negotiate some kind of deal!" Samantha grins. "Looks like Artemis is on the map!">That's great!>I got a bad feeling about this...>Other
>>37582834>>I got a bad feeling about this...
>>37582834>I got a bad feeling about this...Did someone say suicide mission?
>>37582834>Other>"Ok." Return to phone.
>>37582834>I got a bad feeling about this...NO YOUNG NO
>>37582834>I got a bad feeling about this...
>>37582834>I got a bad feeling about this...This is how our wingmates end up on the other side. Or we do.
>>37582834>OtherOk, that's good.Talk to uncle.
>>37582850>>37582834This.Let the higher ups deal with the headache.
>>37582834>>That's great!MOTHER BELKA WILL WELCOME US HOME SOONGLORY TO BELKA
>>37582877HEIL BELKADOWN WITH THE EXTREMISTS OF A WORLD WITHOUT BORDERSBELKA SHALL BE THE AMBASSADOR OF PEACE
>>37582834>>I got a bad feeling about this...fucking Kevin Spacy
>>37582877>>37582900That used to be funny, its not anymore.
>>37582914>Implying I was joking>Implying I don't want Belkan redemption>Implying I don't want Karla to fly alongside Razgriz, Phoenix, Cipher, and Mobius
Right then, shall we start making plans for taking us and the rest of Bravo somewhere safe after Irons tries to start the next world war and uses Artemis as a pawn?Because seriously, I played HAWX and CoD:AW and this is setting off all kinds of alarm bells.
>>37582956pick one anon, you can't have all three and your jokes suck ass and are obnoxious
>>37582834"I got a bad feeling about this." You grumble."Ah, you're just being cynical." Samantha chuckles. "Ah, look! Here they come!"You look at where Samantha is pointing, and see several aircraft coming in: one private jet and four Nosferatu fighters. You already suspect who might be coming in. "So I assuming those suits are from Corporate?" You whisper."Yep! That's our CEO Adrian DeWinter himself!" Samantha nods. "This is big league stuff going on right now!""I see." You nod as the private jet touches down, the Nosferatus following close behind. A man, who you assume to be Jonathan Irons, strolls out the door and almost immediately he's swarmed by suits.Meanwhile, you can see the Butterflies exiting their own planes, but keeping out of the way of the main gathering.>Go to see Irons.>Go to see the Butterflies>Go continue your phone call.>Other
>>37582977>Go to see the Butterflies
>>37582977>Go continue your phone call.

>>37582977>>Go continue your phone call.
>>37582977Return to your phone call but give the Butterflies a friendly wave to let them know you're there
>>37582977>Go continue your phone callUncle might even have an idea about what's going on with this.
>>37582977Neat art.>Go to see Irons.
>>37582977>Go continue your phone call.This is bad... Alert the intel community!
>>37582977What I thought the kids look like.>Go continue your phone call.
>>37582977>Go continue your phone call.I'm reasonably sure we'll get a chance to talk with the Butterflies soon enough. We need the time to talk with Uncle, since we might not have that chance later.Part of me wonders if there will be some sort of joint wing set up between our girls and the Butterflies, since there is apparently keen interest in keeping the Butterflies alive.
>>37583028Yeah they're based off some of the more popular destroyer girls from Kancolle.
>>37582977>Adrian DeWinterwell this just went down the toilet...>Go to see the Butterflies
>>37583033Karla: "Great, so now i must babysit five pilots? "Lara: "Five?"Karla: "Become your wingwoman means babysitting, Lara".*runs*
>>37583059The quest or the situation?
>>37582977You head back to the call center, determined to finish that call. You didn't really care all that much about corporate politics. However, you do remember to give a friendly welcome wave to the Butterflies as you pass, and they excitedly wave back, as well. Upon entering the call center, you dial your Uncle's number."Ah, Karla, I was expecting your call!" Uncle chuckles."Of course you were." You roll your eyes. "So, any updates?""It's going slow but steady." Uncle sighs. "Most of Euphrates happen to be dead or MIA. There's still one or two left that I'm trying to track down.""Ah, well, keep going, then." You nod. "Oh, also, I told Mom the truth.""Ooooh, I hope she took it well?""About as well as she could." You sigh. "At least she backed up when she figured it would increase my prospects of finding a boyfriend.""Ah, always a popular way to win over a mother." Uncle cackles loudly. "Anything else going on?">Nothing too important.>Anything going on in Belka?>What do you know about Atlas Corporation?>Other
Okay, calling it.ATLAS has in its employ a pilot so devastating, she instills fear in her opponents by merely winking. And she loves to "borrow" stuff.
>>37583197>>Anything going on in Belka?
>>37583197>What do you know about Atlas Corporation?TELL ME MORE ABOUT ATLAS CORPORATION.
>>37583197>Mom's going all the way with some guy, and gave me 'dating' advice *Shivers* but nothing much.
>>37583197>What do you know about Atlas Corporation?>Karla's face when
>>37583197>What do you know about Atlas Corporation?>Anything going on in Belka?
>>37583197>>What do you know about Atlas Corporation?
>>37583197More knowledge about Atlas corporation!
>>37583197>What do you know about Atlas CorporationENGAGE BIOWARE FACE
>>37582784>You know, I'd like to actually see Anavel Gato and Yuudachi face off for the title of Nightmare of Solomon, SRW Kallen-vs-Kamina style.That's unlikely but sounds cool.
>>37583238The perfect method of negotiation.
>>37583300I'd be surprised if the Kancolle devs drop some more Gundam shout-outs.
>>37583197"So, uh, do you have any dirt on the Atlas Corporation?" You ask."Well, I know the obvious." Uncle grunts. "One of the largest PMCs in the world, headquartered in Emmeria. They have massive ground and logistics assets, but not a lot of naval or air power. I heard they were shopping around for partnerships with other PMCs to cover those weaknesses."Ah, so maybe that's why they came to Artemis. "CEO is Johnathan Irons. No military history, and a businessman through and through. However, his son was in the Emmerian army and fought in the Emmerian-Estovakian war. He... didn't make it, I'm afraid."Dang, that was rough. Nobody should lose their kid like that."Other than that, pretty much everything about Atlas is legitimate. Nothing shady or illegal going on, at least on the surface. Can't say what they're doing internally, though. Belka doesn't do any business with them so our contacts are limited.""Ah, well, you told me more than enough." You thank him."Vaaaaaaaaalkyrie!" You hear a bunch of young voices chime.Oh no. Guess you couldn't escape them."Sorry, Uncle, I gotta cut this short." You say. "I'll call later when I can!" "Wait a minute, who is that-"You quickly hang up the phone and turn to face the newcomers, the Butterflies."Valkyrie! I was hoping we'd see you here!" Dawn grins. "I-It was why we came here in the first place!" Lightning nods."Hey, hey! Why don't you show us around?!" Thunder says excitedly.>Show them the hangar.>Introduce them to your wingmates.>Ask them about Irons>Other
>>37583449>Introduce them to your wingmates.>Ask them about Irons along the way.
>>37583449>>Introduce them to your wingmates.Time to give our wingmates diabetes or heart attacks.
>>37583449>>Show them the hangar.>>Introduce them to your wingmates.we need to buy our new plane too, I wonder if theres anything we can do for 3k quickly
>>37583449>Introduce them to your wingmates.PLUSHIE WARS ARE GO~
>>37583449>>Introduce them to your wingmates.
>>37583449>Introduce them to your wingmates>>37583469You fool, no mortal will be able to handle that much cuteness in one area. Who knows what will happen!We should do it anyways
>>37583449>Ask them about IronsPlease don't tell me they're going to be sticking around...
>>37583482We must do it man.FER SCIENCE
>>37583483>Sam, casualty report?>Well sir, we've had Delta squadron out due to blood loss, Wolfe and his team are pretty much recovered but will still not be available for three weeks, and Karla has her hands full with the Butterflies.>Facedesk>I knew that Irons had something up his sleeve with that offer...
>Introduce them to your wingmates>>37583482TACTICAL CUTE INBOUND! IT'S OVER!>GirldIndeed Captcha
>>37583552>Gentlemen, we're out of options. We've brought the authorization codes here, so we can get this done and over with.>Codes entered, sir.>authorization confirmed.>Sweet mother... It's time to hit back. Make it happen.>Yes sir. Ready the M03 and K4W411 missiles for launch.
>>37583449>Introduce them to your wingmates.I'm pretty sure they will tell us about Irons on their own, since they (apparently) came here specifically for us. Considering how they are, they probably told Irons all about us, as well as how we have tried to look out for them.We'll hit the girls with all the cuteness the Butterflies can muster.Plan Big Sis Valkyrie is GO!
>>37583599Next thing you know, Irons is using the Butterflies as a way to "persuade" us to be cooperative.
>>37583449"Hey, you wanna meet my squadmates?" You ask. "They're all pretty cool aces like me!""YES!" The Butterflies exclaim wildly. "Karla! So there you are!" Lara pokes her head through the door. "We've been looking everywhere for you!""Well speak of the devil." You grin. "Girls, this is my wingmate Lara. Lara, these are the Butterfli-""OHMYGOSH THEY ARE SO CUUUUUUUUTE!" Lara squeals as she swoops in like a predatory bird and sweeps all four girls up in her arms. "I'M GONNA TAKE ALL OF YOU HOME!"Yep, Lara was going to fit right in with them. "Oh my!" Lilian smiles as she and Amy arrive right after Lara. "Making new friends I see!""Aw man, as if we didn't have enough little twerps to take care of!" Amy sighs. "Lara's already enough of a handful!""Oh, come on, Amy! Look how cuuuuuute they are!" Lara laughs as the Butterflies turn to face Amy."...okay I guess they're kinda cute." Amy concedes."We gotta show them our plushies! We can have a PLUSHIE BATTLE!" Lara grins."No. NOOOOOO. They're gonna ruin mine!" Amy wails."You should at least give it a try, Amy." Lilian puts a comforting hand on Amy's shoulder. "I think it'll be a lot of fun!""...fine." Amy pouts.And so began the great Atlas/Artemis plushie war....>And that's it for tonight!

>>37583621>And so began the great Atlas/Artemis plushie war....Oh, the humanity! Think of the poor plushies!Thanks for the run. Looking forward to more Butterflies' hijinks, and finding out what Mr. Irons' visit will mean for us.
So...are we ever going to question why 4 young teenagers with no prior flight experience were chosen to fly some of the most advanced (and not to mention expensive) fighters in the world?
We should bring the butterflies with us when we go to buy our new plane, just so they can haggle with Smokey so we can get it cheaper
>>37583674Child soldiers, wonderfully pliable when they have nowhere else to go and see you as a father figure.
>>37583674Probably something to do with pliable minds.
>>37583674They've got about the same level of potential as Infinity's Camilla.I can take that as the explanation.>>37583682Tch, Quint is immune to M03 and K4W411, I bet.
>>37583674Aside from the fact that young minds are the easiest to mold/shape into loyal pilots who will move Heaven and Earth for whoever granted them wings to fly?Eh, could be anything. We probably won't even have to ask, depending on how impressed with us Irons is and what his plans are.Depending on Irons' age, maybe at least one of them could be the daughter of his dead son?.
>>37583674Probably not. Even for strangereal this is fucking stupid, but whatever.
>>37583674We asked why they were flying at all back when we met them, but they do have some very expensive planes yeah
>>37583640With side order of pillow fort?
>>37584013>Plushie war>With PILLOW FORTSWar is hell.I like it.
>>37584013You know it
