You had to fight tooth and nail to keep Dahl and OB forces from sabotaging your efforts. Dahl with a massive bombing raid and OB attempting to slip Tu-160s under your nose. However, you had managed to thwart their attacks for now.You also had the small bonus of managing to nonlethally shoot down Lilian's fiance, who was in the process of being picked up by an Atlas rescue team. "Good job everybody, but you're not out of the woods yet!" Loki warns. "I'm picking up fresh contacts moving in. They've breached Atlas' outer air defense line and are heading in on an intercept course for the Gyges. Number and composition currently unknown.""All right, who wants the honor of taking first blood, then?" Samantha asks. "We may be in the air, but we're still barely holding together. Even a few hits might knock us out of the sky, so it's important none of those bandits get within striking range!">Intercept>Stick with the Gyges>Other

>>41443582"I think we'll hang back for a bit." You say. Honestly, you were a bit exhausted from all that tangling you did with the Dahl fighters. Mickey definitely wasn't a pushover."All right then stick close to the Gyges." Samantha says. "Wolf, how about you and your team go and soften them up. We're going to need intel on their composition, anyways.""On it, boss!" Wolf's Raptor waggles its wings as it banks in the direction of the enemy contacts. "Too bad you're staying behind, Stripes. We haven't flown together in a while!""Heheh, maybe next time!" Lara chuckles."Butterflies," Samantha continues, "you're not Artemis pilots so I can't actually give you orders, so I'll leave what you do up to your discretion."Ooooh, oooh! Let's go! Those Aardvarks were hardly any challenge at all!" Thunder says excitedly."M-maybe we should stay and help Valkyrie..." Inazuma suggests."That depends, do they need us here?" Echo says calmly, indirectly asking you if you needed their aid.>Tell them to go with Wolf.>Tell them to stick with you.>Other

>>41445016Gah, I guess that was from a long time ago...
>>41444620"I think you should go help out Wolf. That poor bastard is bound to get himself in trouble." You suggest."Roger that." Echo says obediently."Hey! I take issue with that!" Wolf protests. "I'm adventurous, not reckless! There's a difference!""Well, you're just fine either way!" Lara laughs. "Good luck!""Aw geez." Wolf mumbles, suddenly quieting down. "All right! Butterflies moving out!" Thunder says happily as their three Nosferatus hit afterburners to catch up with Wolf's team. Within a few seconds, they're just specks on the distance. You return your attention to the Gyges, which was slowly moving along at its own, terribly slow pace, debris still flaking and sloughing off like dead skin. "Ummm, Samantha, are you sure it's wise to keep flying that thing?" You ask nervously as you fly alongside the massive airship. "I mean, it's looking like it's going to literally fall apart in the air at any second.""No, it's totally not safe, but we don't have much of a choice." Samantha says glumly. "If we land this thing again, chances are it's never coming back up under its own power, so it's imperative we get it the Pillar, which has the facilities to effect better repairs."(cont)
>>41445115"Hey! I'm doing my best here!" Smokey gripes. "You should be thanking me that we even got off the ground at all!""Yes, this is only the fiftieth time you've told us this!" Samantha groans."Well I for one am enjoying this trip!" Treister laughs. "All this turbulence and shaking is adding so much uncertainty, and that's EXCITING!"You can almost imagine Samantha banging her head against a control panel, though she's probably resisting the urge lest it cause more damage to the crippled airship."Looks like Wolf Team has engaged the bandits." Loki announces. "Getting a better picture through their radar. Two squadrons of S-32s and a squadron of Su-34s. Butterflies will in firing range in fifteen seconds. Both the S-32 squadrons are being led by a Morgan each.""Sounds like they mean business." Lilian says worriedly. "Do you think Wolf and the Butterflies can handle it all?">I don't think so. We should go help.>We'll just have to trust that they can.>Other

>>41445142"We'll just have to trust that they can." You sigh. "We're the last line. If anything gets past them it's up to us to stop them.""You are right." Lilian sighs. "But it still bothers me having to leave them along with Morgans. If it's those same ones before, then we might have a problem. They seem to be very experienced.""Well, at least we got rid of that douchebag Tombstone." Lara spits. "That guy just rubbed me the wrong way.""Yeah, well, that's one small comfort." You chuckle."Still.... I hope Wolf's gonna be okay." Lara says a bit wistfully.>Heh, do you like him or something?>Stay quiet.>Other
>>41445635>>Stay quiet.Normally I'm all for poking fun, but let's let this one pass.

>>41445768>>41445635This, maybe we can bring it out subtlety
>>41445768I'll back this. Subtle enough to pass notice, yet lets us dig deeper.
>Inb4 girly flustered Lara
>>41445768>"You guys went through a lot together fighting Estovakia huh?"I'll vote for this.
Time for some Mecha anime music for dogfighting:https://youtu.be/jfaPfW7dwXg?t=1m32s
>>41445635You know, it suddenly struck you that despite being together all this time, and knowing that had fought together in the Emmeria-Estovakia war, you actually didn't know all that much about the relationship between Lara and Wolf. However, rather than voicing your questions out loud, you decided to be subtle and slowly lead into the subject."So, you and Wolf went through a lot together fighting Estovakia, huh?" You ask lazily as you keep an eye on your radar. Wolf and his team were tangling with one of the S-32 squadrons, with Wolf himself going 1v1 against the lead Morgan. Meanwhile, the Butterfiles were unleashing hellish ADMM barrages, probably their last ones, at the second squadron. You see about eight or so S-32s instantly vanish off the screen. You can't tell if it's because they were destroyed or dove to the deck, but they were out of the fight. Thunder and Lighting stay together as a pair to engage the remaining S-32s while Echo blitzes straight to the more vulnerable Su-34s. Things seemed to be going well so far."Wha?! Why would ask now?" Lara says, bit confused."Just to kill some time." You explain. "Looks like Wolf and the Butterflies have things handled for now.""I guess, yeah." Lara chuckles. "We did go through our share of missions together. I'm not sure if it was coincidence or he was just following me around, but we usually ended up on the same missions. Usually serving as top cover for the attacks or providing air escort for our AWACS. We made quite a pair, actually!""I'm sure you did." You nod. "You ever meet Talisman?" "In person? I wish." Lara laughs. "I mean, me and Wolf did see him in the air from time to time. He was a total killstealer!" (cont)
>>41446234"Maybe he was just way better than you?" You prod."Hey! Whose side are you on here?!" Lara groans. "Well, it's his name in the history books and not yours." You point out."Aw, just rub it in, why don't you?" Lara's Eagle dips just a bit. "Though I did get back at him a couple times, mostly by sniping bandits off his tail. You wouldn't believe how suicidal that guy could be! Bastard still actually owes me drinks now that I think about it...""Well, what about Wolf?" Lilian asks, also playing along. "What did he think?""Aw, he never liked him!" Lara laughs. "Kept thinking I was attracted to him something! As if!""Oh, so he was jealous?" Lilian's voice becomes sickeningly sweet."No way!" Lara laughs nervously. "I mean, we're totally friends! I'm sure he's already drowning in ladies or something! N-not like I care or anything!">Do you really think that?>Whatever you say.>Other
>>41446234>He was a total killstealer!"Damn right I was.
>>41446245>Other"Really? From the way you two act..."
>>41446245>>Whatever you say.Let's leave it at that.

>>41446245>Say nothing. Let silence do the talking. Let her fluster herself out.
>>41446245>Whatever you say.
>>41446245>>Whatever you say.Ask the wolf out!
>>41446245>>Other"Hey Lara. Go cash in those drinks in sometime."
>>41446245>Do you really think that?>I'm sure he's already drowning in ladies or something!And he has yet to land a single Wild Card.>N-not like I care or anything!Uh-huh. Sure. Whatever you say. Totally not buying it.
>>41446294Dunno why, but this might be appropriate for Wolf's dogfighting theme.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV5VDZWYMwc
>>41446245"Dohohoho, whatever you say, Stripes." You giggle. "Whatever you say.""Hey, w-what's that supposed to mean?" Lara stammers."Oh, nothing, nothing." You laugh. "I'm not interested in that kind of stuff! Honest! It's just me, my Eagle and the sky!" Lara continues to insist."If you insist." You respond, trying to hold in your laughter."Jeeeeez." Lara groans."Wild Cards, heads up." Loki warns, interrupting your moment. "It looks like some Su-34s slipped the net and are headed your way. About six. Wolf and Butterfly Teams are still engaged with the enemy fighters.""Hm, it seems a bit of a waste for all three of us to engage those Su-34s at once, and our allies are still a bit outnumbered. Perhaps we can split our forces?" Lilian suggests.>Yeah let's split up.>No, we stay together.>Other
>>41446511>>Yeah let's split up.I know folks are always paranoid about 'Never split the party' but I'm nervous about those Morgans.
>>41446511>>Yeah let's split up.
>>41446511>No, we stay together.Never split the party!
>>41446511>>Yeah let's split up.Time to get that paycheck
>>41446511>Yeah let's split up.>One of us will have to stay and pull CAP.
>>41446511>No, we stay together.I smell a trap...
>>41446511>Yeah let's split up.SHENANIGANS>>41446369Wrong track palwww.youtube.com/watch?v=qI7w6_GIAXc
>>41446511>Yeah let's split up.
>>41446511"Yeah, let's split up." You say. "We can cover more objectives that way.""So how are we gonna handle it?" Lara asks excitedly. Well, good for her. Either way she gets some action, after all.>Decide how to split up your team! Currently it's just you, Lara, and Lilian!
>>41446763>Lara on Defense>Lilian and Karla will engage
>>41446763Lara helps out Wolf, Lilian helps out the Butterflies, and Karla stays on defense.
>>41446763>You two handle the Su-34s, I'll help the Butterflies.
>>41446763>"Lara why don't you keep an eye on Wolf's tail like you always do..."Lilian helps out too,.
>>41446763>We ship Lara to Wolf for shipping>We have Lillian be mommy to Butterflies,>Karla becomes Gyges Holy Aegis.I second this
>>41446857sorry about that, just deleted my vote. >>41446763Thinking about this again and I'll reinstate my vote back to what it was >We ship Lara to Wolf for shipping>We have Lillian be mommy to Butterflies,>Karla becomes Gyges Holy Aegis.
>>41446763All right, so it looks like the consensus seems to be to send Lara and Lillian out to support while Karla stays behind to defend?>Y>N
>>41446963the anime is shit!
>>41446938"Stripes, Angel, you two go on ahead. I think I can handle a few Su-34s on my own." You say confidently. "I'm pretty sure Wolf and the Butterflies are gonna need you more than I do.""Roger that." Lillian affirms. "Good luck!""Awwww yeah!" Lara whooops. "Can't let Wolf take out that Morgan! That's MY kill!" Lara's Eagle and Lilian's Typhoon hit afterburners and boost away to the distant dogfight. The signals were so close and mixed up that you couldn't tell what the hell was going on anymore on the radar screen. However, your focus is on the six contacts heading straight for the Gyges. You angle for an interceptions and thumb the safety on your missiles. However, you pause for a second. Engaging them now would be a good idea, since you didn't want them getting any closer to the Gyges than you had to. However, targeting them from long range would give them a chance to dodge, or at the very least scatter, making your job of hunting them down even harder if they managed to evade you.What you could do was hold off targeting them until the last second, where you'd practically be guaranteed they couldn't dodge, but that was cutting it very close, as they'd pretty much be in firing range at that point...>Fire now>Wait till you can get closer.>Other
>>41447169I don't care, I'm still watching.I can't wait to see the Rose Order after they showed Piña's Italica entourage.

>>41447227>Wait till you can get closer.
>>41447308Lelei? Yeah, her anime form is cute.Still prefer her manga form though.
>>41447227You decide to wait a little bit longer. You drop your speed a bit so that you'd be able to fall in right behind the Su-34 formation, in optimal missile range. As you closed distance, the Su-34s either didn't seem to notice or were too focused on their target, as they kept going straight ahead in tight formation. You were only going to have one shot at this.Taking a deep breath, you hit your afterburners, getting one last burst of speed before finally switching on your radar.>roll 6d10 (AtA roll.

>>41447532>I feel that they made a rated r movie into a pg action flick.Did you read the LN? It's literally 'Nanking never happened' tier Japanese imperialist wankery.
>>41447546I hope they get called out for the wrong sub there.>>41447532Can't wait for Itami's visit to his mom.
>>41447558I heard about that but it was even worse in the original web novel in which the author really wanked it hard.
>>41447459You unleash a swarm of missiles, as many as you can fire at once. Your vision is immediately blinded by smoke and fire as the missiles lance out and hit their targets barely seconds later. Su-34s shatter and break apart under the assault, leaving only one left standing. However, as if egged on by the fires of hell itself, the Su-34 hits afterburners and gains speed."Damn!" You grunt to yourself as you throttle up in an attempt to maintain lock. You see two right flashes and the Su-34 immediately pulls away, leaving two small cruise missiles speeding towards the Gyges."Incoming cruise missiles!" Loki warns."We see them!" Samantha responds. "It's only two missiles! Smokey's got the remaining CIWS turrets working, so I think we can handle it. Get that bastard, Valkyrie!">Chase down the Su-34>Shoot down the missiles.>Other

>>41447642>Shoot down the missiles.
>>41447633As Gate becomes progressively more consumable, it becomes incrementally less unabashedly Imperial Japan wankery.>>41447642>Chase down the Su-34The running theme of this thread seems to be "Trust in the competence of our coworkers"
>>41447642>Chase down the Su-34I knew we shouldn't have left the Gyges so under defended.
>>41447678Yes, unlike actual AC where few wingmen actually do good.
>>41447678I guess, I don't mind some Japan wankery that's to be expected and is no different from America fuck yeah movies. But the toned down violance makes it weird.
>>41447730>>41447678I can live with it, actually.As long as Archer is now an otaku, tis cool.
>>41447642>Chase down the Su-34orders is orders. lets go shot that guy down.though if he punches out and we recover him we should totally buy him a drink.
>>41447642"Roget that." You nod as you pull on your control stick hard. Your Eagle rattles and rumbles hard as it picks up Gs. Fortunately for you, the Eagle was already vastly more maneuverable than a Su-34, and that was before the thrust vectoring and canards were added on to your souped up version. Within seconds, you have a deflection shot on the Su-34 and let loose a burst of fire, shredding the wing off. However, your cannon shells appear to touch off some of the ordnance it's carrying, and the attack plane explodes brilliantly. "HOLY SHIT that was way too damn close!" You hear Samantha complain. "I thought you said the CIWS was working!""It was. I just forgot to check if the guns were loaded." Smokey grunts."WE COULD'VE DIED!""Hey, I got them fixed in time, didn't I? I don't get why your panties are in such a twist." Smokey sighs."Good job, Valkyrie. Immediate area is clear of hostiles." Loki congratulates you. "The rest of your flight is still engaging the enemy fighters."Indeed, on your screen, you could see the furball was still active. Two of Wolf's fighters had to drop out due damage, while the third was shot down. It was just Wolf, the Butterflies, and Lilian and Lara against the remaining two Morgans and four S-32s."We're entering the range of the Pillar's AA defenses. Gyges is in the safe zone now." Samantha reports, clearly relieved. "Better get moving. If you dally out there any longer you're going to get left behind!">Join in on the fight.>Tell your allies to fall back.>Other

>>41447897"All right girls, I think it's time we called it a day." You call out. "Break off and form up on me!""Roger that. Disengaging." Lilian says curtly."Awwwwwww, just five more minutes!" Lara whines."Denied." You say flatly."Normally, I'd be with her." Wolf join in. "But I gotta make sure my guys are okay.""We're returning." Echo reports.You watch your radar as your allies and the OB forces separate. It seemed as if they didn't have the heart to carry on the battle either, now that their objective had gotten away."You win this time, Valkyrie." You hear Bablyon say over an open channel. "Next time maybe you could shoot me and poor Lancer here some attention!""Quiet, you." You hear Lancer growl.Ah, so it WAS them.Finally, your allies reform with you. You can see that all of their fighters were sporting some new battle damage, whether it be scratches or punctures by missile shrapnel, and even a few burns from too close brushes with missile explosions. It almost made you regret staying behind to fight the relatively defenseless Su-34s."Ha! We got a good haul today!" Lara boasts. "Eight kills between me and Lilian!""Oh yeah? We got twelve!" Thunder retorts."Well, well, you're just big cheaters, with your cheapass ADMMs and all." Lara huffs."S-s-stop fighting!" Lightning wails.(cont)
>>41448237"You did good out there, Echo." You compliment the lead Butterfly. "Not many people can fight a Morgan one on one.""It was nothing. All I could do was stay out of his sights." Echo says somewhat glumly."You got out alive. That's all that matters." You assure her.Up ahead, you can see the Gyges land for a second time, kicking up dirt and dust as it lands in the salt flat next to the Pillar. Fortunately, unlike last time, the Gyges' descent is slower and far more controlled, so it doesn't suffer quite as much damage. The moment the giant craft touches down, emergency and support vehicles start swarming all over it.You also see the procession of support helicopters present during the battle returning to base, carrying extra personnel and rescued pilots. It looked as if they had finally caught up, were landing offloading their cargo and passengers."Wild Cards, you are clear to land." The Tower informs you. >Go tell Amy the good news.>Go see Shiba in person.>See how Samantha handled her maiden voyage.>Other

>>41448250>OtherNOW is is the time we break out the standing-up-in-cockpit victory dance, since we didn't get a chance to break it out LAST time it was apropos.We just stole a gyges, fight superior fighters, came out with no casualties, bagged our winggirl's fiances alive, made bank in kills, AND snubbed our nemesis.Fucking victory dance boogie time.Possibly a booty dance aimed at the gyges, because jaeger is in it
>>41448302>Karla's face when
>>41448302Add in an ass-shake and we goldenAlso consider the fact that it was the ORIGNAL Vault that Atlas and Dahl were fighting over and that we stole the Gyges right under their noses.

>>41448250All right, so uh, are you guys really serious about the victory dance thing? It's hard to tell if you guys are being serious or not. Otherwise we'll default to the next most voted choice!Answer truthfully, please!>Y>N
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>41448434Doesn't feel in character, but thats never stopped tg before.Coin toss
>>41448434>YAsgard wills it!
>>41448434>>NDoesn't real fit Karlq to me
>>41448434>YThe campaign to nab that highly contested vault was long, hard, drama inducing, and hard. But it was worth it. But I feel like this should be done in a more private setting or when Karla gets drunk.
>>41448434YDude, seriously, hit up youtube a moment.Just LOOK at all the dancing soldiers. Bored, carriers, viper classes, training exercises.plane jocks no exceptions
>>41448434Oi. Just stop and take a moment and look at all the shit you put us through recentlyits not just a dance, its a milestone marker.Also i want to see you write it, and all the other characters reactions to it.SO>Y
>>41448521It would probably be cringe worthy embarrassing anon.
>>41448434>NSave it for Jager when we're in private.
>>41448521Too spontaneous, wait til she is drunk.
>>41448542Not with armchair rolling.Also, risk none gain none!>>41448553gosh no, the nofun brigade will spam N's just as hard then.Unless you're offering to flip sides there once liqour's involved.
>>41448434do you really have to ask that? really, merc? In your heart of hearts, of all the romance plots and cutesy dialogue?I mean, really?You ran Idols.You shouldn't have to ASK when dancing is appropriate.
>>41448568I'd switch for drunken shenanigans
If we're gonna dance in this quest, it should be during the celebration party! That or when we're wearing something more appropriate for it.
The nofunbrigade is strong in this vote. I see much salt flying.
>>41448434N>>41448608I'm fine with fun. I like fun. I just don't like out of character fun.
>>41448607If we swapped for this over our typical flightsuit we'd already be dressed appropriately
>>41448623How is it out of character?We just s-ranked the deathstar trench run.Pants-shitting is out of character. Victory dance is not.>>41448605may have a point though.
>>41448568>Unless you're offering to flip sides there once liqour's involved.I am.
>>41448648>How is it out of character?Really?
>>41448648Hmm, the mostly serious, no fun allowed stoic Belkan doing a random happy victory dance after a long and grueling battle...yeah, that's out of character.
>>41448664>Stoic Belkan hijacks glorious national secret heritage>not excited at grand theft aircraft forgresswhy yes of course its tg.Also, karla allows more fun than you think. There's constant teasing and slip ups because 'its funny'. Its not out of character, its about belkan supremacy. Or are you saying belkan stoicism sucks? Because that's what i'm hearing from you. that you don't think glorious belkan engineering is worthy of celebration and making cheap excuses about it.
Merc kill?Seriously it's 4 am. I wanna go bed.
>>41448434Well, considering all the shit you went through in the past couple of days, you believe that a little show of victory was in order. Just a little victory dance in the way that only a fighter pilot could do.Extremely, abominably low passes over unsuspecting people.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VOlaQafkv4"Wild Card Four, you're coming in too fast, reduce speed!" You hear Tower warn."Don't worry Tower, I got this." You grin as you aim for the large gaggle of people standing beside the landed Gyges.Your altitude warning begins making angry beeping noises at you as the number of feet off the ground you are begins to drop from triple digits down to two. You ignore as you put your hand over the throttle. You had to time this perfectly.The moment you bottom out of your dive, you push your throttle forward, pouring as much speed into your engines as possible. Your Eagle screams over the crowd, sending people running or diving to the deck for cover. Just seconds later, the wake of air being dragged along behind your craft hits the crowd as well, sending loose items flying everywhere."Wild Card Four!" You hear Loki furiously chastise you. "You are in violation of-""Hey COOL! I wanna do that too!" Lara squeals as she buzzes the Gyges. You see the Butterflies follow suit, managing to maintain their three plane formation the entire way."KARLA! WHEN YOU LAND YOU ARE SOOOOOOOO DEAD!" You hear Samantha yell in frothing rage. "I DIDN'T SURVIVE FLYING A RICKETY AIRSHIP ONLY TO NEARLY BE PULPED BY ONE OF MY OWN PILOTS!""You sound mad, Samantha. I think you need some rest." You tease."ARRGHGLHGLA!" You hear Samantha rage into incoherence."Haha! That was AMAZING!" Treister laughs heartily. "Do it again!">GOTTA GO LOWER AND FASTER>Once is probably enough.>Other

>>41448710>>Once is probably enough.>>41448703Seeing as how Karla can do what she wants, yeah whatever you think buddy. I still think a random victory dance is out of character.

>>41448710>>Otherhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jelae8E1s0EHey. hey merc.Daaaanngeerr zooooone.

>>41448710"Sorry sir, I think once is enough." You laugh. "I don't think poor Samantha's heart can take any more.""You're damn right it can't!" Samantha wheezes.Finally, you land for real, your Eagle's wheels finally touching the ground after what seemed like an eternity. Behind you, the rest of your flight start to land and disembark. All around, you can see the various ground crew clapping and giving you a thumbs up as they pass. Obviously your low pass was a big breath of fresh air for their routine. However, you see that the few suits that happened to be outside shot you poisonous looks. Looked like everybody was a critic. You head over to where your flight buddies have also landed to link up with them."Well I'm beat. What are you all going to do now?" You ask."I'm gonna go see how Wolf is doing." Lara grins. "Gotta punch him for getting in the way of my missile shot! Would've bagged a Morgan if it weren't for that!" "I think I'll go see Shiba." Lilian sighs. "Maybe I can convince him to go back home.""We're gonna go see Dawn and Auntie Amy!" Thunder smiles.You snort as you try to hold in the laughter at the words "Auntie Amy." You're sure she was gonna LOVE that.>Follow Lara>Follow Lilian>Follow the Butterflies>Apologize to Samantha>Other

>>41449028She can drink if she wants!
>>41448899You walk over to the landed Gyges, where you see more repair crews swarming over it as they try to get the thing back into optimal condition. Near the back, you can see Sam and Smokey coordinating the repair effort. Well, more like Smokey coordinating the repair effort. Sam was standing in the back dealing with what looked to be a massive headache."Hey there, Samantha." You say, approaching slowly. "Um, sorry about that low pass...""No, no, don't worry about it." Samantha sighs. "I know you fighter pilots need to let off stress, too. It's just tough to do when you're busy all the time.""I can relate." You nod. "I mean, we fighter pilots can be really damn busy, too.""Yeah, it's just.. managing the effort to get this damn airship fixed is just a huge timesink. Haven't even come up with a decent name for it yet!" Samantha groans. "Christ, I think I need a drink.">That can be arranged!>I'll take you up on that someday.>Other

>>41449186>Detective LokiDammit, Freyr got the short of the stick in that anime. Also, smug shota Loki is smug.>>41449168Well it's either that or Skíðblaðnir.Obviously, the name of Freyr's ship is harder to pronounce.
>>41449043"You know, Samantha, that can totally be arranged." You smile as you wrap your arm around Samantha's shoulders. "We were planning to have celebratory drinks to commemorate this victory! How about you join us? What do you say?""Well..." Samantha looks at you and back at the Gyges. "Ah, fuck it, somebody else can worry about that shit for now.""That's the spirit!" You laugh as you lead her to to the tavern. "Come on, the other should be there by now!"Sure enough, once you get there, you see everybody else has arrived. Of course, there's Lara and Lilian. Amy is present as well, her arm in a sling but otherwise looking to be in good spirits. Wolf was also there, as well as Jager and Tarin. There was also a group you were not aware was going to be present: the Butterflies."Aren't you kids a little young to be drinking?" You raise an eyebrow."How did you even get in here in the first place?" Samantha asks curiously."W-w-we just asked nicely!" Lightning claims."Obviously, with our totally mature demeanor, we totally fooled them into thinking we were old enough!" Dawn huffs proudly, now having largely recovered from her injuries."I somehow doubt that." Echo responds."Besides! It's no fair if you guys get to have all the fun! We contributed too!" Thunder says semi-angrily. >Sure, who's gonna stop us?>Better wait a few more years.>Other
>>41449220>Sure, who's gonna stop us?
>>41449220>OtherServe the Butterflies really tasty fruit juice while making them think it contains alcohol.

>>41449253I believe he is under arrest now, after all he is still rival mercenaries.
>>41449286well we're the one who down him, so we could just take him into our custody, our custody being at the bar under our supervision
>>41449307Someone should sing this at the bar.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2AC41dglnM
>>41449306I don't think that how custody work, anon.While i believe Artemis is making him comfortable as they can during his detention time (fluffy bed and air conditioning and 24h medic), he roaming freely on their facility is last thing they will do, unless Shiba agree to work for Artemis.
>>41449351he wouldn't be roaming freely anon, Lillian would have him on a leash
>>41449357I never thought I wanted to see this in art form.>>41449319Also alternate videoke track for Karlahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-4XsDQYDi4
>>41449220"Fine, you can stay, as long as you drink NON-ALCHOLIC stuff." You say as you glare at the bartender to make sure he heard you clear as day, as well."Awwwwww, fine." Thunder grunts.There's already an assortment of drinks at the table, ranging from cheap beers to expensive hard liquors. The Butterflies are sat down at one end of the table, and are only served juice and non-alcholic cocktails. However, they seemed perfectly fine to be in the current company of adults. Probably don't get out much, either."Oh thank god." Samantha grabs a bottle of whiskey and takes a deep pull from it. "God I needed that.""All right, everybody!" Lara stands up. "I'd like to propose a toast to Karla here, of which without her we wouldn't be here today! Hear hear!"Everybody, including you, takes a quick sip from their mugs and shot glasses. "Aw yeah, I needed that." You grin. "Okay, as per flyer tradition, I feel that we have to do that time honored tradition of proving our best by drinking our best.">CHOOSE YOUR CHALLENGER
