Milly yells as she goes to reunite with fellow Belkan pilots. You see her fellow pilot cadets shoot her envious, but lighthearted glares, you guess because she was personally rescued by you. You give a casual wave in response."So, where to now?" Jager asks as he stands beside you, watching the you Belkan pilot cadets mobbing poor Milly to tell them juicy details about you. "Samantha has basically let us borrow this plane for the next few days so we can go... well... practically anywhere, I guess."All the possibilities...>You know, there's a certain professor I know in Dinsmark...>You know, I met a certain guy in Directus...>I kind of want to see what Sand Island looks like these days...>Ever been to Oured?>Other

>>42590999>>Ever been to Oured?Wait correct me if I'm wrong... Now that I think about it, isn't Oured where the memorial to the Circum-Pacific soldiers was?The one we visited in the first thread or second thread.Maybe we should go there.>>42591313>The capital, of course, has a lot of entertainment and date spots. There's a good chance that former aces lurk there.Plus also this I guess.
>>42590999"Well, I do kind of want to see what Sand Island looks like these days..." You muse."Heading back to your old stomping grounds?" Jager raises an eyebrow. "Sounds interesting, but didn't they close down Sand Island years ago?""To be fair, that would probably make it easier to get to, considering it used to be a military base." You point out."True." Jager nods. "But I doubt it's a place that you can just go on a whim.""Bah, who's going to know? The whole island is abandoned anyways." You shrug. "I suppose." Jager frowns, not quite convinced.>We'll just fly in. Not like anybody is there to stop us.>Okay, we'll take a boat in from the mainland. Scout things out first.>Other
>>42591634>Okay, we'll take a boat in from the mainland. Scout things out first.
>>42591634>We'll just fly in. Not like anybody is there to stop us.
>>42591634>>Okay, we'll take a boat in from the mainland. Scout things out first.Fishing Trip? Are we going to meet Alice and Carol hunting for Sharks?
>>42591634>>Okay, we'll take a boat in from the mainland. Scout things out first.
>>42591634>Okay, we'll take a boat in from the mainland. Scout things out first.If I see some of those rock and roll records in the water I swear to the Valkyries...
>>42591634>>Okay, we'll take a boat in from the mainland. Scout things out first.It's more scenic.
>>42591634>>We'll just fly in. Not like anybody is there to stop us.btw>Not like anybody is there to stop us.Officer training 101: "Do not taunt Murphy"
>>42591634>>Okay, we'll take a boat in from the mainland. Scout things out first.It'll be nice to feel the sea breeze, and a boat ride would be more romantic.
>>42591096So after the update, we can into prop planes and restrict rooms. Thoughts?
>>42591634>Take a boat in>Pack lunch and swimsuits >Have Jager help us put on sunscreen
>>42591782So what kind of boat are we talking about?Company Yacht? Old PT Boat? Missile Boat?
>>42591634"Mmmm, I think we should just take a boat there. Take our time, you know?" You smile."Sure thing." Jager nods as he boards the plane. "You fly us there. I'll call ahead and see if we can't arrange some transport in advance.""Sure thing." You nod as you head for the cockpit. It was a good thing you still had all that commercial airline experience. It's a simple thing to plot a course to the airport closest to Sand Island and take off. Meanwhile, Jager pokes his head in."Just as I thought, they don't run ferries out there, and none of the locals are willing to go out there. I'll rent a boat, but I just wanted your input first." He says."On what?" You turn from the console."What kind of boat we rent." Jager grunts.>A yacht. Travel in style.>A speedboat. Gotta go fast!>A regular sailboat. You're in no hurry.>Other
>>42592120>>A regular sailboat. You're in no hurry.
>>42592120>A speedboat. Gotta go fast!Just in case.

>>42592120>>A speedboat. Gotta go fast!
>>42592120>>A speedboat. Gotta go fast!Like a pilot would pick anything else
>>42592120>A yacht. Travel in style.More comfortable than a speedboat.
>>42592120>Regular sailboat For the romance of it.
>>42592120>A yacht. Travel in style.
>>42592120>A yacht. Travel in style.crusin and rusinAlso when are we going for dat whiskey run for pops?
>>42592120>A speedboat. Gotta go fast!Now that I think about it, I can't imagine a burst missile leaving just a cute mark down the cheek. How much of Karla got the bacon treatment over Sand Island all those years ago?
>>42592120>>A regular sailboat. You're in no hurry.comfy yet not pretentious
>>42592310That was moreso the shrapnel of her own bird.
>>42592310what delicious tone will Karla get when she gets tanned on Sand Island?
>>42592310Back scars? Some down the leg?Shrapnel embedded in the head?
Rolled 1 (1d9)>>42592355well, i aint discriminating.Lets ask Dice god then.

>>42592396>>42592399Thank you based Dice Gods.
>>42592355Chibs you understand Carla is basically albino? she's gonna be red as a lobster.
>>42592485with Belkan-made Sunscreen, nothing is impossible.
>>42592120"Get us a speedboat. When you ride, it's always gotta be fast." You grin."Of course, you're a fighter pilot. Why did I even ask?" Jager shakes his head and turns away to relay your preference. A few minutes later, he returns to the cockpit and takes a seat in the copilot's chair."You know, you can just wait in the cabin." You say."Nah, I think I like it here better." Jager leans back in the seat and yawns. "I'm a bit beat. Wake me when we get there.""Sure thing." You nod. You watch as Jager closes his eyes and he begins to snore softly.Well, with Jager conked out for the moment, you consider firing up the radio and calling someone you know. >Call up your wingmates.>Call up your parents.>Call up Samantha>Just concentrate on flying.>Other
>>42592399then what's Jager's tan number? How deep and dark will his tan get?>>42592485dammit anon, quit ruining my plans for future cheesecake
>>42592512Not even Belkan space magic can fix that creamy skin

Rolled 11 (1d12)>>42592517>>Just concentrate on flying.>>42592523well then, lets roll again.
>>42592517>Call up Samantha
>>42592517>Call up your parents.Inb4 we call in while they're... uh... having 'lessons' in the kitchen.
>>42592517>>Call up your wingmates.

>>42592517>>>Call up your parents.probably should talk to the parents
>>42592584That or he forgot to put sunscreen on....
>>42592581how about maintaining a conversation while having sex?
>>42592610then what's his other tan number when he applies sunscreen?
>>42592581>>42592617Karla's mom probably has to muffle herself from having her moans of pleasure being heard on the phone while dad has to talk on the phone while carrying his wife.
>>42592617>Keeping up a conversation with your old man>While he's locking his QAAM into Mama-weiss' MegalithUhUHHHHUHHHHHHH
>>42592669>frantically launching his heat-seeking missile>muffled screaming of enemy pilot in the distancePhysical scars are enough.
>>42592767>>42592652Truly, Papa Weiss is an ace.
>>42592767>uses his special weapon >Trinity grade payload
>>42592517You decide to call up Mom and Dad and see how they were doing. It felt like an eternity since you had last actually talked to them. You kind of wonder how Dad was getting accustomed to family life again."Hello?" You hear Mom's voice as she picks up the phone."Hey Mom!" You say happily. "KARLA!" Mom squeals. "How have you been doing? You haven't been doing anything too DANGEROUS now, have you?" "Nah, just doing my regular work." You laugh."Oh, so you're still doing dangerous work." Mom snipes."Come on Mom, we went over this. I'm a grown woman now." You roll your eyes. "W-well, you'll always be my little girl!" Mom huffs."RIght, right." You roll your eyes. "How's Dad been doing?""Oh, he's getting along with the neighbors well enough. He's still getting used to the fact that our neighborhood is Osean territory now.""Oh man." You snicker. "What was his face like when he discovered all the streets in Downtown were renamed?""He was absolutely livid!" Mom cackles. "He was on the verge of marching on city hall!""OH jeez." You giggle at the though. "What's he doing now, then?""Still trying to find a hobby to pass the time." Mom sighs. "He's been trying to buy a vintage fighter plane to refurbish and restore. Obviously, due to his... err.... background. He's not having an easy time of it."You wonder. You had enough connections now that you could "expedite" Dad's troubles. Then again, he was a pretty proud guy and he might take offense at you helping him out on something like this.>I think I know a few people...>Well, wish him luck for me.>Other
>>42592977>>I think I know a few people...
>>42592977>I think I know a few people...>Other: Do you know any places that sell really good whiskey?
>>42592977>>Well, wish him luck for me.He'll probably find something one way or another.
>>42592977>Well, wish him luck for me.Truly, hard heads run in the Weiss blood.
>>42592977>>I think I know a few people...family
>>42592977>I think I know a few people...
>>42592977>Well, wish him luck for me.It'll mean more to him if someone else doesn't do half of the work.
>>42592977>>Well, wish him luck for me.We got our chivalry (pride+stubbornness) from somewhere
>>42592977>Well, wish him luck for me.
>>42592977>Well, wish him luck for me.We ain't helping this out, that's just asking for trouble.
>>42592977>Well, wish him luck for me.Finally caught up on Cyber Idols special. What next, Cole in Wonderland?
>>42593223What, you want it CLAMP-style?www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsBGVRpxhkQ
>>42593223CIMQ, Clover's Blood Trail edition when Merc?
>>42593223>Cole in Wonderlandyes.Yes.YES.
>>42593223>>42593265>>42593322Maybe have her wake up wearing pic related, and trying to derail/escape the story as much as possible while an omnipotent story teller tries to keep things on the rails so they can get her out of the story by "RAILROADING"?Then it turns out it's all a dream or something.
>>42592977>>Well, wish him luck for me.
I had an amusing thought of Amy having weird Miyuki-chan in wonderland like dreams about her teammates. Mostly involving Karla perhaps.
>>42593341So, something like The Stanley Parable?...The Cole Parable?
>>42593375>Implying she doesn'tufufufufufu~
>>42593341Rochelle the Rabbit,Rin the Queen of Hearts,Sparky the Mad Hatter,Morgan the Cheshrier Cat
>>42593427I figured Sparky would be the Jabberwock for some reason.
>>42593341So something of a mix of Alice and Wizard of Oz?Speaking of that, here's the cover that the artist did>>42593427Jenner could be the Duchess or maybe the Queen. The cat could be either Morgan, Loki, or Niko (colour scheme, mostly)
>>42593446The entire tea party is explosives.
>>42593223You have no idea what you just unleashed.Next post soon!
>>42593469ONE SHOT, YESSSSS
>>42593459They turned Toto into a cat... There are no words for my sincere disappointment in Japan
>>42593469Scribble better makes a drawing like yesterday too.
>>42593469>>42593223>mfw>>42593463BUT WHO WAS MARCH HARE?
>>42593341>>42593459>>42593469>inb4 Cole in Wonderland is actually a feverdream resulting from when Producer found out about blowing up the kitchen and punishing her by forcing her to EAT VEGETARIAN FOR 3 DAYS (and none of that half-assed "Veggie Dogs" or Veggie Meat, or those "Meatless Beef" crap)
>>42593469Merc, lets just face it. Cyberpunk Idolmaster is just too good to leave it alone. You know you want to run it again.
>>42593522>Cole gets sick when not eating meat, junk food, or sweets."Julie, you get to eat chocolate cake. Cole, here's an apple."
>>42593566>>42593522The end times cometh.
>>42593522"Father, oh Father, why do you forsaken me?"
>>42593492I don't think those illustrations are from a Japanese artist. But goddammit, some of Kriss Sison's desgins are really cute.
>>42593677That looks like a combination of Cyborg Ninja and Venom Snake with the eyepatch on the wrong eye.
>>42593677The artwork is amazing, the Toto thing is triggering me a bit
>>42592977"Well, wish him luck for me." You laugh. "I'm sure he'll be able to get a bird eventually.""That's what I'm afraid of the most." Mom mumbles. "I was just getting used to having him around again, too!""What, afraid he's going to pay more attention to the plane than you?" You grin."Yes."Well... that was pretty blunt."O-oh." You stammer. You decide not to pursue this matter any further.The rest of the flight is rather uneventful. You have half a mind to just turn the autopilot on and take nap yourself, but you don't want to wake up Jager or anything like that, and you needed someone to monitor the flight controls, just in case. Fortunately, you don't have to wait long. You come up to your designated airfield, an old military post that used to be the stopping point for planes before the final leg to Sand Island."Hey, sleepyhead." You poke Jager in the ribs. "We're here.""Wha-?" Jager snorts as he's jolted awake, his head and eyes darting around to gauge his surroundings. No doubt from years of honing his combat instincts. "That was fast.""What can I say? Not my first passenger flight." You grin. The coastal town here, which once existed solely to cater to supplying and entertaining personnel at Sand Island, seemed to be doing surprisingly well for having its primary source of income gone. From what you could tell, the town transitioned to tourism to keep itself afloat, which was pretty smart of them, you think."Well, the boat should be ready." Jager says as he picks up his pack. "You ready to go?">Let's go.>Let's check out the town, first.>Other
>>42593716>Let's check out the town, first.
>>42593716>Let's check out the town, first.Do they have good whiskey?
>>42593716>Let's GoInb4 we magically meet the Razgriz secretly acting as the Celestial Being of Strangereal.
>>42593716>>Let's check out the town, first.
>>42593716>Let's check out the town, first.The island's not going anywhere.
>>42593716>>Let's check out the town, first."Maybe we can find some info about Sand Island, and we need to buy some food too"
>>42593716>>Let's check out the town, first.Grab some lunch for the trip.
>>42593716>Let's check out the town, first.WHISKEYAlso stock up on some potions, repel, nest balls, antidotes, maybe some great balls if we're feeling ballsy.>Well... that was pretty blunt.We oughta get Mama and Papa on a date.
>>42593716>Let's check out the town, first.Maybe they'll know about something cool we can see. Or something horrible and dangerous we can avoid.
>>42593741>Muh InterventionNah, not happening, since we all know that at least one Wardog is in the capital.
>>42593716>>Let's check out the town, first.We need to keep our promise to Smokey, also I want Karla to drag Jager clothes shopping
>>42593716>Let’s check out the townGrab lunch, rum, things to mix with rum, sunscreen, and condoms.
>>42593840But we already have condoms anon, we're a fighter pilot.
>>42593840>>42593821>>42593815>>42593811>>42593762>>42593755You guys think there is a diglett cave nearby?
>>42593677Welp that's another suit to add to the collection.
>>42593860Well, I suppose if Jager taught his Dugtrio Flash he might get to take it into a cave later.
>>42593849We can always use more.
>>42593912More importantly, we don't have Circum-Pacific War Novelty Condoms yet.
>>42593900>Using Flash to navigate a cave>Not taking on all the zubats that come at ya>mfw
>>42593947Aren't those the ones that make you pull out just before you finish because you were sticking it in the wrong hole?
>>42593716"Hey, how about we check out the town, first?" You ask, tugging at Jager's arm. "We still got time to spare.""All right." Jager says, carefully eyeing the sun. "If we're going to go, we need to do it before sundown. I don't want to try to navigate unfamiliar waters in the dark.""Gotcha." You nod as you survey the town. You had only been here once before, on a brief stopover before being transferred to Sand Island. You notice that the town's sole casino, which by far was the most popular attraction back in its military days, was still there and still the most prominent landmark. However, it now also seemed to be advertising itself as a hotel as well. Off tot he side was a small shopping district, holding all of the usual goods and souvenirs a coastal town like this this would sell to visitors. Down at the coast, there was a fairly large beach, that had the same snow white sand that inspired Sand Island's name. There was also a large and fairly new dock facility, where you could see a number of boats. Milling about were a mix of both old time fishers who had been here since time began, and new blood yacht owners looking to break in their new purchases. It was honestly kinda funny, but you knew these guys would know the lay of the land.>Go to the casino>Go to the shopping district.>Go to the docks.>Other

>>42594085Well, you couldn't go on a trip without proper supplies, right? The shopping district was the most natural choice."Come on, soldier. We're gonna need to properly equip ourselves for this outing!" You say happily as you tug Jager along. "You know, food, water, sunscreen, and proper attire!""Proper attire?" Jager raises an eyebrow."Summer wear, of course!" You roll your eyes."All right." Jager nods. "I'll go handle the foodstuffs, then. I suspect you're going to want some 'privacy' with your purchasing decisions.""Oh, you're so thoughtful!" You kiss Jager on the cheek. "We'll meet back here in an hour then, okay?""Affirmative." Jager nods and gives you a mock salute."Quit it! People are watching!" You hiss.Jager quickly makes his escape, leaving you to your own devices. You wander over to one of the clothign shops, which was of course selling outfits more fitting to the warm coasts in this area. You casually pace down the isles, your eyes wandering and looking for something suitable.>A sundress. Nice and wholesome.>One piece swimsuit. Sexy yet conservative.>Two piece swimsuit.

>>42594876>>42594797Daily Reminder that Karla wearing a badass black suit and pants exudes enough sexy to make Jager wet.
>>42594566You pick out a nice looking white, one piece swimsuit. You didn't feel the need to go absolutely all out, at least not yet, anyways. You also purchase some sunglesses, sunblock, and a big straw hat in order to protect yourself from the sun. Satisfied that you've gotten what you wanted, you pay for your items and are prepared to head out the door when an elderly woman sitting at the door squints and gently grabs your hand."Young lady, have you been in this town here before?" She croaks. "I could have sworn I've seen you here before.">Yeah, this is my second time here.>Must be your imagination>Other
>>42594984>>Yeah, this is my second time here.

Did Karla packed her "Special' underwear like Jenner did?
>>42595129Who says she isn't wearing it right now?
>>42594984"Yeah, this is my second time here." You nod. You figure that she must've been here when your flight stopped over all those years go."Ah yes, you were here with that flight of trainee pilots, right? The last batch before the war ended." The old woman nods sagely, and her eyes open up slightly. "Whatever happened to them? I haven't seen any of them come by since the base closed..."Your heart seizes up at this. This old woman, she honestly didn't even know what had happened.>Tell her the truth.>Don't mention it to her.>Other

>>42595472>Tell her the truth.
Sorry about the delay!>>42595472"They didn't make it, ma'am." You say sadly, trying to keep your breathing even. "There was a war on, you see.""Ah, it's a shame." The old woman shakes her head sadly. "A lot of fine young lads they were.""I am so sorry." The shop clerk comes and gently takes the old woman's hand. "My grandmother is very talkative. She just doesn't know when to stop.""No, no, it's all right." You say softly. "Honestly, it's kind of nice to have somebody who remembers us.""Yeah, I suppose." The clerk gently guides his grandmother to the back of the shop and pauses. "Wait a minute, you look kinda familiar. You don't happen to be the Valkyrie, are you?"Oh shit.>Right on the money.>You must have me confused with someone else!>Other

Y'all think Kirk the dog recognizes us even if we haven't interacted with him in the past?
>>42596181Perhaps, mostly just by Karla's scent.
>>42596181>>42596219Guys.....I think the dog's dead or reaching his last years.
>>42593469>>42593483>>42593496>>42593505>>42593526Okay, let's think about this, Merc. Are we running with the Disney version of the Alice story, the American McGee spin on the story, or a full-on cyberpunk retelling where wonderland is basically a deep, deep part of teh Tombs that has been overrun by greenery and taken over by the local mutant folk?Also Merc XCOM Quest when?
>>42595947You don't verbally answer his question. You just give him a knowing smile and put a finger to your lips, winking as you exit the shop. Jager is already waiting for you outside, his arms loaded down by bugs filled with various supplies. You also rather jealously note that he was attracting the attention of the other girls around, so you establish your claim by wrapping your arms around his and dragging him off to the docks. "You sure took your time." Jager observes."Yeah, well, something came up." You chuckle. "Is that our boat?"You point to a small, sleek boat with red stripes, sitting at the end of the dock."Yep, that's the one." Jager nods, jingling the keys in front of your face. "At full speed, we can get to Sand Island before sundown, though we'd probably have to spend the night there. We don't have enough time to come back before dark.>What a shame.>I'm not complaining.>Other
>>42596245>>What a shame.Say it in the most utterly Belkan stoic way possible.

>>42596245>OtherTruly a travesty but we're just going to have to deal with it.
>>42596245>>What a shame.Activate Belkan stare
I guess this means that we f-hold hands overnight.
>>42596348>>42596365What, while eating Jager's f-steak?
>>42596245"What a shame." You say in a completely deadpan manner. "Whatever shall we do?""Tragic." Jager responds in his own deadpan manner. "At least we can use the base as shelter.""Now that's some positive thinking!" You laugh.The two of you then board the speedboat, with Jager carefully stowing the supplies in the back. He then motions for you to sit. "You flew the plane, so I'll drive the boat. It's only fair." He says."Great, because I don't even know how to drive a boat." You laugh. Shaking his head, Jager takes the controls, and after carefully guiding the boat away from the docks and out into open water, guns the engine at full power, shoving you into the back of your seat."Something tells me you always wanted to do that." You note Jager's grin."Oh yeah. Not much opportunity to drive a boat like this." Jager laughs. The first few minutes are the most hectic, as Jager works to avoid the other boats near the shore, mostly other tourists like you who brought or rented their own boats. Not to mention the occasional surfer. Further out, all you saw were fishing boats, both commercial and recreational. There was little reason to be out in deeper waters, after all. However, as you get closer to Sand Island, you don't see any boat traffic at all."Pretty ominous." You frown."I'm pretty sure that has something to do with it." Jager points to a line of buoys, each one bearing a sign saying "NO TRESPASSING. MILITARY FACILITY." in large red letters."Well, it's not like there's anybody guarding the perimeter here." You say, pointing out the obvious lack of patrol boats or aircraft that would normally be out here. "And those buoys don't look to be in good shape, either.""I suppose." Jager frowns. "But still...">Let's keep going.>I guess we can turn back.>Other

>>42596540"Let's keep going." You say. "Right." Jager nods and throttles up, blowing past the buoys. He continues full speed for a few more minutes, until Sand Island becomes visible on the horizon. He then looks up. "Lot's of birds around here."You crane your head upwards and do indeed see dozens, no, hundreds of gulls in the air. "Yeah, Sand Island used be a nesting ground for all sorts of birds." You nod. "Naturally, the army chased them all out when they built the base. And naturally, once the army left, the birds came back.""I see." Jager nods. "I guess one of the side effects of the base shutting down is nature returning to its natural state around here.""Yeah, without all the noise and the pollution from the base, the beaches around here have suddenly become a lot more enticing." You shrug and then pause.Was that an airplane you just saw?Jager immediately cuts the engines to the boat, meaning he just saw the same thing."An enemy?" Jager frowns. "Some kind of scout?""Don't know." You frown. "It's small, single prop. Definitely civilian."The two of you continue tracking the plane, which starts to drop altitude as it heads closer to Sand Island."Looks like it's landing at the base." Jager says. He digs into one of the bags and takes out a handgun."Whoa, is that really necessary?" You gasp."That plane could be carrying anybody. OB spies looking for you, smugglers using the island as a forward base, or other possible hostiles.""Or, it could just be a bunch of rulebreakers like us heading out to the base for some thrills." You point out."Still, can't hurt to be prepared." Jager grunts.>Fine. Can't blame you for that.>You won't be needing that gun.>Other

>>42596701"Fine, I can't blame you for that." You concede. Jager nods and puts the pistol in a concealed holster."We'll be hitting shore soon." Jager says. "Just stay close and we'll sort this all out. Jager then brings the speedboat up to one of the docks that serviced Sand Island base. Like everything else you've seen so far, the dock was abandoned and in minor disrepair. Obviously nobody had used it in years. Jager docks the boat, the helps you disembark before going into combat mode, drawing his pistol and instinctively hunching down to make himself a smaller target."I don't see the plane." You whisper."It's had plenty of time to land and hide." Jager notes. "Let's check the hangars first."Jager quietly and carefully leads you out to the airstrip, which was now cracked patch of asphalt littered with grass and bird droppings. Suddenly, a whole flock of seagulls flaps away in alarm and Jager whips around to check the source......only to find a black labrador retriever playfully scattering the seagulls. The dog pauses when it sense your presence, and then just blankly stares at you and Jager, it's head tilting to the side as it tries to decide what to do."There's no need for the guns." An old but friendly sounding voice calls out from the open hangar. You then see a large, bald, bearded man walk casually out, wiping his greased hands with a rag. "There's nobody out here but that dog and an old man with a love for old planes."You can't help but feel you've seen this man before. You narrow your eyes and then it suddenly clicks."...Pops?">And that's it for tonight! As always next thread is next week!
