This seems kinda familiar, right gents? Haha! Ah, 1800 on a Tuesday and I'm running a late. The more things change, I guess Anyway, don't know if this'll be a regular thing, probably not (Thank fuck, I'm sure some of you are saying! hahah!).I'm going to link the storytime thread as the archive of the quest so far- the guys maintaining it have done an outstanding job, in my opinion, and have really gathered up everything and done an outstanding job in making it all accessible and pulling in the most relevant stuff from the threads. https://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/kant-o-celle-quest-a-kantai-collection-game-transcribed-from-4chan.345865/ I suppose that's all that's really relevant, so let's get this party going. See if I remember how to do this, even! haha! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++It raining. OF COURSE it’s fucking raining, you think. Of fucking course. It had to be something, might as well have been fucking rain. You actually can’t bitch too much- first official op of the war and you came out smelling like roses. Four ships recovered from the oathbreakers, at least one of them destroyed in return, and one captured. You try not to dwell on the too Japanese commandos that won’t be going home too much. You’re even partly successful. Yamato’s already led her sister inside, with the throng of ships following them at a respectful distance, leaving you and the three German ships standing outside. You look at them, they look at you- the meaning is clear enough. They don’t know where to go and are waiting to follow you. This ain’t what you signed up for, but right now you figure it’s fair enough. Someone will be along quick enough to take charge of them, you just gotta show them where to rack out. Not that you’d know where. The shipgirl barracks whatever the fuck they call it is the old BOQ, renovated a bit and that’s it. There’s plenty of empty rooms, but you’re normally about as far removed from who goes where as you can be- shit, Settle probably doesn’t even know, that sumg fuck. You can see him grinning back there with- Arizona. Now, if anyone would know what the fuck rooms these girls are supposed to go in, it’d be her. ‘Course, you could also try to grab Yams and see if she knows of an empty room- you’ve gotta get your shit back from her anyhow, right?  Ask the mute. You’ve got her charades bullshit figured out well enough and she’d know if anyone does Go get Yamato to tell you. She’ll know an empty room even if she has no idea where they’re supposed to go.  Fuck it. Find the first empty room and drop them off there. You’re tired too god dammit.
 Go get Yamato to tell you. She’ll know an empty room even if she has no idea where they’re supposed to go.

>>1005656[x] Ask the mute. You’ve got her charades bullshit figured out well enough and she’d know if anyone does.No reason to give Musashi more teasing oppurtunies than necessary, and going to Yamato's room is giving ammo. Ari leading also gets Musashi used to US ships faster.It's back, baby...
>>1005656>[x] Go get Yamato to tell you. She’ll know an empty room even if she has no idea where they’re supposed to go.wait so instead of our regularly scheduled Settle Shitshow we're getting Tom Clancy's Horatio Haremblower?
I went to Pearl Harbor for the 75th Anniversary. I flew about 4,855 miles with pic related in my pocket, and then had it in my pocket for four days of touring Oahu. It got a little crumpled, but I was able to bring it aboard the memorial on Dec. 5. Nearly forgot to take pictures, too.>>1005656> Go get Yamato to tell you.

>>1005704pls go and stay go attention whore
Wait, when did Musashi show up?
>>1005709You give it so freely, though...
>>1005716In Ghost's novel
>>1005716in the novel Ghost wrote that immediately precedes this thread so far as timing goes.
>>1005709Just ignore him, and like a retarded child locked in a closet, eventually he will shut up.
>>1005716Oh look! I fucking KNEW this was gonna happen. christ.Ghost wrote a big-ass writeup that takes place sometime further along than the main threads have tread that covers a ridiculous amount of shit.It's been linked in the irc, on ghost's twitter, and on spacebattles. If you don't follow any of those, you were shit out of luck. I'm sure somebody will have the link handy now.
>>1005726Looks like 4chan thinks the link is spam>>1005721pls
Isn't this deader than dead?
>>1005733How can it be dead when it's running right here
>>1005716in a sidestory written by ghostdivision, the OP of this thread.so now we have mushy, max, lebe, some baggy old kraut cruiser and a brainwashed abyssal waif.you know when you give your car keys to your teenage son? it's like that, but with the KCQ canon.
>>1005656[X] Ask the mute. You’ve got her charades bullshit figured out well enough and she’d know if anyone does

>>1005733The hope seems to be that an abundance of salt and memes will act as a lure to summon the Greek back to questing.
I *really* need to re-read some stuff. God, how long has it been? Only things I can remember in the drought was a crisis of infinite Kongous.
>>1005656 Go get Yamato to tell you. She’ll know an empty room even if she has no idea where they’re supposed to go.
>>1005745Thank you, kind anon!
>>1005736Not by the filthy greek.
>>10057324chan thinks kota is spam
>>1005689I think the biggest thing I was looking forward to seeing was the Tears of the Arizona. My pictures didn't come out very well, but it was nonetheless very interesting to see. Chilling, as well, considering the nickname for the oil.
>>1005769USS John C. Stennis was in port, as well. She's up in the background.
>>1005718Naka in a band produced by Hate...well can't be worse than her current gig.
>>1005780There was also several divers working on Arizona while I was aboard the memorial. I'm pretty sure one of the people I've talked to as part of my job was one of them.
>>1005780Nice. My dad was a plankowner for the Stennis.
>>1005781And her opening act, Hate and the Corgis.They're not very good, but they're loud as fuck.
>>1005798>inb4 Harder records a bunch of Smash Mouth covers
>>1005794>>1005795Stennis is a big lady.
>>1005801Also, DD6 doing their little dance numbers.
>>1005811That she is. The old man took us for a day cruise out by Norfolk, VA when he was still in. I was pretty young so I don't remember as much as I wish, but thinking that I've been on one of those carriers...
>>1005821Last photo I'll dump her, I think. I'm very glad I was able to go to the 75th anniversary, I was able to get a book of mine signed by several WWII veterans. Hope y'all are happy I brought Donutzona with me.
>>1005823Ya did good.
[x] Go get Yamato to tell you. She’ll know an empty room even if she has no idea where they’re supposed to go. Deciding that rain sucks- and that soaked combat gear sucks even more- you head into the building, the three ships following you dutifully. The duty desk- as usual- is staffed by one navy officer and one self-defense forces officer, both of whom look at each other before looking at you. You probably rank them both- well, maybe- but unless they know who you are, they won’t know that. Not like you wear rank pins into combat. “What ya need?” The ensign- you just saw his pins- asks. “Nothing, just showing these three where to rack out.” You respond, starting to turn down the hallway towards the stairwell- they’re repairing the elevators, and you never trusted those fucking things here anyway. “Wait a second.” He says quickly, moving to get up out of his chair. “I’ve never seen them or you before in here. You’re gonna have to get someone to sign off on that, I can’t just let-” “I’ll vouch for him, Ensign Marshall.” Yamato says, approaching from the other hall. “Lieutenant Beauregard is probably looking for me.” “Sorry Ma’am.” He says, sitting back down. “You’re good to go, LT.” You bite back a snarled response. “You know where these three are supposed to sleep?” You ask, following your friend down the hall she came from. She shakes her head. “I’m not even sure where Musashi is supposed to go. She’s staying in my rooms with me.” “Empty rooms?” “There’s some at the end of the hall. The last rooms down there. I think they’re even unlocked, so housekeeping can get in.” “Desk has the key?” She nods, turning into the stairwell. “I can go get it, if you want.”  Yeah, if you would.  Nah, how about you show these three where they’ll be sleeping, I’ll go get it.
>>1005823kredit to team
>>1005833> Nah, how about you show these three where they’ll be sleeping, I’ll go get it.
>>1005833> Yeah, if you would.Krautboats won't let him go, methinks.
>>1005833[x] Yeah, if you would.
>>1005833> Yeah, if you would.If you could post when you call the votes that'd be good, I think Ari was actually winning there by the end.
>>1005849I try to start writing the updates about 15-20 minutes after posting, but I'll do that, sorry.
>>1005833> Yeah, if you would.>>1005842>Krautboats won't let him go, methinks.Anon has the gist of it. They're probably damn near superglued to him at this point.If they were ubootes I'd have said the devil dog was getting himself a wolfpack.
>>1005833> Yeah, if you would.
>College starts again tomorrow>KCQ is running todayFuck, why did it have to run today...
>>1005833 Yeah, if you would.
>>1005833> Yeah, if you would.This gives us time to make Ensign Limpdick feel the pain that comes from disrespecting the Marine Embodiment of Hatred.
>>1005867If we wanted to interact with him we would have gone to get the key from him instead of sending Yamato to do it
>>1005833>[x] Yeah, if you would.
>>1005833>[x] Yeah, if you would. eh, we can come back and mess with those guys on a slow day, if we ever manage to work our way that far down the shitlist.
>>1005854Yamato helping Hate find a quiet, out-of-the-way room when?
I see the greek hasn't paid his debts yet
>>1005891His dog died, so giving him some extra time is justified.Do hope he resumes soon, though.
ok, votes called, update writing!is that proper English? close enough! haha!
What's this? A Carrier on the Horizon?
>>1005860Don't worry. This isn't even the real KCQ anyways.
>>1005932That's an odd Deckload for an IJN Carrier...
>>1005934It's the first KCQ in around 6 months. I'll take anything I can get. Yes I know that there is at least one other Kantai-Collection quests on the board, but I don't like it.
>>1005939Whoever landed an F-18 on that thing has some explaining to do
>>1005932>>1005939>>1005946ayyy, very nice
>>1005946And apparently said Pilot is getting his ass kicked by... a woman in an archery outfit?I don't even know anymore.
He's busy putting fresh hot glue on his Shoukaku statue.There's no time to repay denbts when fapping is to be done.
>>1005932>>1005939>>1005946Just noticed the Hornet and are those Hellcats, Dauntless' or Devastators? I can't remember naval bombers
>>1005961Meant to reply to >>1005887
>>1005960Nice work on the tail of the Hornet
>>1005963Hellcats and SBD Dauntlesses; what could be recovered from Hornet's CAP/Scouting flights.
>>1005960>>1005946>>1005939>>1005932Needs a little more seafood, don't you think?
>>1005982Yeah, yeah, post it and let's get on with it
[x] Yeah, if you would. “Yeah, if you would.” You respond, nodding. “I’ll show these three where they’re sleeping and get them squared away, then I can get my shit back from you, if you don’t mind.” She shakes her head. “Crab left a message for you, too.” Oh boy. “Ok, I’ll get it from you later. You wanna just come up when you get the keys?” She nods, stepping past you back into the hallway. “You remember where my rooms are?” “Yeah, third floor.” “The empty rooms are all the way down past mine, at the end of the hall.” “End of the hall, got it. C’mon, let’s get you three some beds.” You say, watching Yamato for a second before leading the way up the stairs. “She seems nice.” Nurnberg comments.You nod. “She’s good people. Deserves better than she’s gotten so far. Hopefully her sister coming back changes shit for her.” You leave off the rest of the statement- if it doesn’t get her into the fight, where she wants to be, you’re going to probably start training her on the low. Musashi proved you need the support sometimes.The rooms are a corner suite. Nothing fancy, especially by civilian standards, but there’s a bedroom and a kitchen in there, so it’s as nice as anything they’re gonna get otherwise. You reach over to hit the lights and usher the two destroyers in. They walk about two steps in and stop, looking at the rooms and then back at you, expectantly. Just what they’re expecting, you have no idea. Nurnberg, meanwhile, is looking through the rooms, turning on lights and getting a feel for the place.  They’re probably tired- show them the bedroom then bail. You can’t afford any more rumors anyway…  See if they’re hungry or something- last food any of you had was on the flight back from Guam.
>>1005999> See if they’re hungry or something- last food any of you had was on the flight back from Guam.Especially considering the whole 'abyssal prisoners' thing, some nice human food seems like a priority.>you’re going to probably start training her on the lowOh honey, I'm sure she can handle herself just fine once she's off the chain
>>1005999>[x] See if they’re hungry or something- last food any of you had was on the flight back from Guam.

>>1005999> See if they’re hungry or something- last food any of you had was on the flight back from Guam.Feels kinda OOC for Hate, but then again it's not really a normal situation either.
>>1005999>[x] See if they’re hungry or something- last food any of you had was on the flight back from Guam.Slowly, Hate begins the decent to watch-wearing dildo...
>>1005999>[x] See if they’re hungry or something- last food any of you had was on the flight back from Guam.shipgirls are the only ones who can truly appreciate our mad culinary skillz.
>>1005999[X] They’re probably tired- show them the bedroom then bail. You can’t afford any more rumors anyway…
>>1006039>>1006054Considering how this man approaches breakfast, I think he can appreciate the value of a good meal
>>1005944Which one and why, if I may ask?
>>1006064I know that Merc is/was running his own kancolle quest, pacific strikers or something like that, and there's that shipgirl commander quest that's around.
>>1006056Shipgirls are the only ones who won't be killed by them...and maybe krogan.
>>1006064I can't remember the name exactly, I think it's ship commander or something? No offence to the QM, but the MC's change from fat guy to fat venom snake copy in the first few threads is stupid, I don't like his quest. But at the same time, it's one of the few Kantai-Collection based quests on the board. At least that I've seen.
Ok, votes called!
>>1006069>>1006077Pacific Strike and Shipgirl Commander.Haven't read PS, but I couldn't get through the first few threads for SC
>>1005680goddamn it anon
>>1006088I couldn't get through the first few threads of SC either, hell I dropped it after the first few threads. Now while it might have changed I don't particularly want to go back to check, there are some good quests ran by other QMs.
>>1006095But this isn't one of them!Haha! Ok, sorry. I'm writing, I swear.
Must not cancer today. Only finest speculation on Japanese Boffors Coppy! DAKKA FOR THE DAKKA GODS!
Which boatslut is best boatslut?
>>1006123In KCQ: Kongo (dess~)In KCQ writefag stuff: Prinz EugenIn normie KC: Graf Zeppelin.
>>1006131I like the cut of your jib sir.Also, hope to see the NakAFV again sometime.
>>1006123In the quest so far? Probably Tenryu. Musashi is a contender from what little we've seen of her.In Kantai Collection as a whole?Jun'you or Nagato
[x] See if they’re hungry or something- last food any of you had was on the flight back from Guam. You’re about to say something when your stomach emits a chain of loud gurgling rumbles, tapering off into a drawn out-squealing that slowly fades away to leave three sets of eyes looking at you. “You hungry?” You ask, getting nods from all three ships. They’re probably too fucking awestruck for words. “Alright, dump-” You cut yourself off- they don’t have anything to leave in the room at the moment, so it’s kind of stupid to tell them to dump their crap and you’ll show them where to eat. Not that you’re sure any place is open this time of night, other than the mess. Well, that’s not entirely true, you know there’s some 24 hour joints in town, you’ve been to a few of them variously with Hornet, Tatsuta and her sister, and Yamato before, but you don’t know if you can get hold of a government card that quickly. Maybe if you hit up Naka…“What sounds good?” You ask dumbly, scrambling for time. “We don’t care.” Max responds. Well, at least she talks, you think. She spent most of the flight home asleep, and said all of three words after that. So she’s managed to double her count. Good on her. “Whatever you want to get is fine with us.” Her sister- Lebe, her name comes to you after a second- confirms. “We don’t mind.” Nurnberg nods, right as there’s a knock at the doorframe behind you. You twist in place to find Yamato dangling four sets of keys. “Three for them, one for me.” She explains, handing them out. “I’m supposed to be in charge of this floor, since I’m Goto’s secretary.” You nod, watching the two destroyers turn the keys over in their hands, wonderingly. “Well, pocket those and we’ll go get some chow.” You say. Max nods, half to herself, putting the key in the top of her boot, while Lebe starts a bit at your voice before taking off her cap and sticking it in the inner band there. “Good to go?” You ask- they all nod. “Um..” Yamato says, behind you. “Do you think you should go eat like that? You can leave your equipment in my room, if you want...” She’s got a point. Wandering into a place in town- or even the mess- in full battle rattle with a SMG hanging off your front probably won’t go over too well, and you ought to secure Fenrir, as well.  To hell with it, the chumps can fucking deal. Besides, no one’s gonna question it right now anyway Yeah, you might have a point.  Probably better to secure it in the armory anyway. We’ll head there first.
>>1006186> Probably better to secure it in the armory anyway. We’ll head there first.
>>1006186>[x] Yeah, you might have a point.TO THE WAIFUROOM
OK! gonna go get food, might be a bit more of a delay than usual. Prolly run to skubway, they're like, 10 minutes up the road. Back soon!
>>1006186> Yeah, you might have a point.
>>1006186>[X] Probably better to secure it in the armory anyway. We’ll head there first.Only because we're still carrying Fenrir around.
>>1006186 Probably better to secure it in the armory anyway. We’ll head there first.daughteru rumours are fine, but waifu/sisteru rumours can be problematic
[X] To hell with it, the chumps can fucking deal. Besides, no one’s gonna question it right now anyway.Just another day in the life. If you need to ask, you don't need to know.Also, think we could get Fenrir some Type 3 shells for maximum !!FUN!! and profit?
>>1006186>[x] Yeah, you might have a point.Hate's stuff is too high-level for the regular armoury. We should stash it back at the warehouse that Hate had made into his den.
>>1006186> To hell with it, the chumps can fucking deal. Besides, no one’s gonna question it right now anyway
>>1006186 Yeah, you might have a point.

>>1006232ANYWHERE HATE STANDS BECOMES AMERICA
>>1006232who's gonna stop him
>>1006186> Yeah, you might have a point.May not be regulation, but I suspect that Yams is better security than the armory has.
>>1006232What did you say about our extended state's? I'll have you know we're still working on the integration, but soon we will explosive the flag!
Ok! Have dinner, votes called. eating and writing!look at me i can multitask!
I'm here, I'm here! Sorry, I didn't see this thread was up because I have no FUCKING EYES!>>1006131>>1006141...And neither do you two, though I'm thankful.So some of us do have some writeups for you all, but we're not sure whether to go ahead with them or not--on checking with Ghost, he advised reposting anything shared here in the next main thread, and I'm inclined to agree.So, well, here I am, putting it to you. I've got about an hour and could probably leave my stuff for someone else to post on my behalf, like Deme's done. I actually have two things for you guys--Nakatime material from a different perspective, and some porn. It's "canon" in that it happened, but I specifically wrote it to be easily replaced with a fade-to-black and fade-in to the next bit. Are you guys interested in either? Both? Save it for a proper thread? Let me know.
>>1006318Ayy, Naka-chan! Nice to have you.Lay it on us now and in the next real thread, I'd say. Ghost already made a mess of when to post thins with Rebound, so might as well just go ham.
>>1006318Hey Naka, good to see you.>Are you guys interested in either? Both?Yes, both.>Save it for a proper thread?That depends on if this thread is getting archived with the rest. If it is getting archived then you should post it, if not then you should save it.
>>1006318I mean i don't think it'll do any harm
>>1006336death and destruction never looked so cute. Now we need to put Hoppo in Naka's outfit.
>>1006318>next main threadWhat did she mean by this?
>>1006359PF will post a new thread this year.
>>1006367You really are new to this board, aren't you?
>>1006318Porn is always good.
>>1006367I don't understand that sentence. Could you try and reword it?
>>1006318>nakatiem lewds>>1006367he hasn't updated Alice for a year and we haven't heard a peep about Totally Not Sky Captain
>>1006318Just hit us, darling. If you're worried about the fun stuff, throw it up in a pastebin.
>>1006395There's a point where we needed to fap and we've clearly passed it
>>1006318What I'm saying is gimme the lewds because who knows when the next chance will be.
[x] Probably better to secure it in the armory anyway. We’ll head there first. “Probably better secure it in the armory.” You state, earning a nod from Yamato. “And you said Crab had to see me.”She pauses for a second. “He did, yes.” Yamato isn’t sure what to make of Crab- but then again, most people aren’t. It’s not every day you meet a stop-lossed warrant officer. Which is what makes Settle’s calling him a Sargent even more funny- but that’s between Settle and Crab as far as you’re concerned, and Crab’s just as happy to collect pay and operate underneath the radar, same as you. “Alright. Well, come on. Are there govs out front?” You ask, referring to the small fleet of vehicles kept for the shipgirls in the parking lot. They’re only rated for work on base, but you’re not worried about it- besides, you can sign out something hilariously impractical for the narrow Japanese streets if you need to. “Mhmm. You want me to drive?” Yamato asks, kind of hopefully. “Nah, I got it. let’s go.” You head back down to the desk, singing out one of the SUVs sitting in the lot and jumping into the driver’s seat, having to adjust it so you can find a reasonably comfortable way to sit with your wargear all on. Not for the first time, you wish you could just summon and dismiss this shit the way the ships do. The drive to the armory is short- and this time of night, there’s almost no traffic on the road, a welcome thing, considering how fast and aggressively you drive. The armory- the original armory- was here just for the use of the base security element. Back when the war started, Crab took the building over for maintaining and repairing the shipgirls’ guns. Of course, that was before anybody knew they self-repaired the way they did- which left Crab with an amazingly well outfitted machine shop, a crew to run it, and precious little to do. He may bitch about it a lot, but the projects you give him are practically all he does beyond his own insane shit. Pulling up into the gravel lot, you notice the lights are still on- and you can practically feel the music hammering through the ground. Crab does like his woofers. You get out of the suburban to hear the muted strains of Devildriver’s ‘swinging the dead’ pounding through the air. You turn as the rest of the doors open and the girls all pile out. You’re not entirely sure exposing them to Crab right now is entirely healthy… but on the other hand, they’re going to have to meet him sooner or later.  Have them stay in the truck- you’ll just drop off your gear and be right back.  Might as well make sure they’re not too traumatized by him- let them come along.
>>1006395He probably would write more if he wasn't getting kicked in the face by life every other week.
>>1006424> Have them stay in the truck- you’ll just drop off your gear and be right back.
>>1006424>[x] Have them stay in the truck- you’ll just drop off your gear and be right back.After their Previous body horror experience, Crab will be waaaaay too much.
>>1006424> Have them stay in the truck- you’ll just drop off your gear and be right back.Somehow, I don't think Crab + Krautbotes is a good combination.
>>1006424> Might as well make sure they’re not too traumatized by him- let them come along.The next time they meet him he's probably going to be a lot more frantic and overbearing.you know, because they got refit by Abyssals.Living, integrated Abyssal tech. Kind of a big deal, not something he'll be able to ignore once he learns about it
>>1006424> Have them stay in the truck- you’ll just drop off your gear and be right back. getting them fed is our priority right now, not scaring the living daylights out of them. We can do that when they're not exhausted or just out of a traumatic experience.
>>1006424>[X] Have them stay in the truck- you’ll just drop off your gear and be right back.These girls were just subjected to unholy body horror, and were almost brainwashed into turning on humanity.They don't need to be exposed to the worst human being since Hitler.
>>1006441You know actually when I put it that way, Crab is either going to trigger them hard or be completely unable to phase them. An angle grinder seems almost cute compared to faceless body-horror mechasurgery husks.
>>1006424>[x] Have them stay in the truck- you’ll just drop off your gear and be right back.Have Yams get in the driver's seat. For when we have to run from the crazy, saw-wielding crab.
All right, on checking with Ghost, he's okay with me posting them now.You might recall that when we last left the little cruiser that couldn't, she'd just finished bluffing Tatsuta, trying to get her to stay alive by dangling the threat of harming Tenryuu over her head, on pain of letting herself die. In the hall after leaving, Harder admitted that he'd heard everything, and Naka realized that it felt like ages since she'd been able to see his face.A final warning: HERE THERE BE LEWDS. http://pastebin.com/76B2SNnG Actual Nakatime can pick up after this without having to read it and lose nothing, if you're not of a sort. The next post will be what comes (hurr) immediately after.
>>1006424>[x] Might as well make sure they’re not too traumatized by him- let them come along.crab's a bad person, but it's still better than being tentacle raped by mimes.
>>1006449And this was -after- they were treated like shit by humanity in the first place, mind you!
>>1006424>[X] Have them stay in the truck- you’ll just drop off your gear and be right back.
>>1006424[x] Might as well make sure they’re not too traumatized by him- let them come along.Like ripping a band-aid of, meeting Crab is best done quickly so as to minimize pain.
>>1006451I can just see them doing a confused head-tilt when he pulls out the grinder."Is this normal here?"

Pssst hey post lewd DD's
And with that, it's time for H-H-H-HARDERTIME!>>1006460In her sleep, Naka murmurs and turns over, wrapping her arms around you a little tighter. In the dim light of the room, you pull her close again, gently brushing the hair from her face to see her expression. Peaceful. You love her. You know she loves you. You know being with her is helping. You know it every time you go to bed together, spending an hour holding her to warm her cool little body, every time her heart starts beating again after you're done, how she lays a hand on her pale chest and feels it when she thinks you're not paying attention.But she's still pushing you away, and it's killing you both.You know it every time her fingers brush your face after that hour, feeling your lips turning blue, every time you see the silent apology and quiet defeat in her eyes when she finds a cut on your chest from her steely hair, every time she slips into the fugue and goes into something that isn't sleep. You know it every time she wakes up, sounding more drawn and exhausted than when she fell under, asking dazedly how long, or where, or when she is. But right now, she's asleep, slender arms around your middle, her heartbeat slowing again. It'll be gone by the time she wakes up, you know from experience. She whispers your name, a little smile playing on her cold lips.God, even like this, she's so fucking beautiful.You lie there, holding her close, brushing her arm lightly for you don't know how long. Then it happens. You can practically feel her stiffen, body going colder and deader, the light and life fading from it. Her eyes open--not a tired flutter, but as mechanical as raising a shade--and the blue lanterns beneath wink on. Your breath rolls over her nape, only to turn to scattering needles of frost. Her muscles relax just enough to bring her slack, lying like a frigid corpse as her fingers untwine and the girl you call Naka vanishes from the room.Damn it. Damn it damn it damn it. Worst of all--worst than seeing her fall limp, worse than wondering (again) if she'll ever wake up, and worse than the biting cold that goes deeper than bone to someplace you can't name--worse than all of that, she told you to get away from her. She made you promise.And god fucking damn every little thing, you're gonna do it.
>>1006480'Just for an hour,' she pleaded, and you repeat to yourself bitterly, mocking yourself as you yank your hat on over a cloud of breath. 'I couldn't handle it if I woke up and I had...' You pause just long enough to lay your coat over her, now staring straight up into her ceiling, unmoving, unblinking, maybe unthinking. She's Down There somewhere. And, disgusted with your weakness, you storm out of the room. You were never one for walking. Walking time is thinking time, and thinking time just reminds you how fucking stupid and bullshit this is. And submarines, well, you think in four dimensions, with some of the best computers the Navy had to offer. You're good at thinking. You think at a sprint, and second by second, turning it all over again and again, your steps become a stomp. Finally, at the furthest dock out on the water of Yokosuka, with no more stomps ahead of you, you flop down bonelessly, ass hitting the pier a little harder than you'd like, and scowl out onto the sea. You should BE in there, damn it. You should be doing something that isn't THROWING FUCKING ROCKS AT THE FUCKING OCEAN FULL OF ICY FUCKING FISHCUNTS THAT ARE KILLING YOUR FUCKING CRUISER.You wrenched your arm hard, slinging the last stone, muscles already telling you what a bad idea it was. You ignore them, winding up for another--Only to be arrested by the lightest of tugs on your wrist. You turn, snarl already on your lips, to find an already-flinching little Jap. Ugh, one of those destroyers, that was exactly what you didn't want right now."U-um," she stammers, her hair a snaggly mess. "Excuse me.""Get lost, squirt," you hiss, with all the meager restraint you can manage. You go to throw, and she tugs again."A-are you okay?" She persists, sounding way less okay than you are. "I-I just want to--""I said FUCK OFF," you growl lethally--wincing as you remember the look on Naka's face as you argued about this in the CIC not two days ago. "I'm not in the mood. Leave me alone, or I'll..." "O-or what?" She squeaks, eyes teary. "You'll [b]kill[/b] me? A-again?"Your eyes widen. This girl--[i]Expended four torpedoes and one Jap destroyer.[/i]
>>1006424> Might as well make sure they’re not too traumatized by him- let them come along.
TL note: goddamnit no bbcode for non-OP. Oh well, always something, removed from future parts.>>1006486"Ikazuchi." That was her name.She gives a shaky little grin, finally letting you go to toss a wary salute. "Reporting for duty!" You stare at her, eyes watery under her brown mop top, smaller even than Naka. With a huff, you turn back to the sea, looking away as she carefully folds her legs to sit beside you. "Whaddaya want?" You grumble."To help you," she replies earnestly. You side-eye her in silence as she picks up one of your rocks. You scoff darkly. "You can't help me.""You're worried about Miss Naka, right?"You turn back to her, ignoring the thundering in your heart. "How'd you know?"She giggles. "We all heard about your fight. Hibiki thought you cheated on her. Akatsuki thought you broke up with her. Inazuma..." She trails off as she sees the scowl on your face deepen by several magnitudes."She's not wrong," you tell her bitterly. "Though I guess..." Just saying it out loud hurts. "I guess she's gonna break up with me.""...Why?" she asks gingerly."Because she's a fucking idiot," you roar, pounding the dock with your fist. "Because she's scared she's going to hurt me and so she'd rather just go commit stupidcide than listen to me or take my help or let me in." You plunge back into stormy silence, your own eyes starting to sting with tears you bitterly fight down. Arms curled around your front, you rest your chin on your knees, struggling to focus on taking the next breath. For a long time, Ikazuchi says nothing. You actually forget she's there for a while."We're worried too," she murmurs quietly. "About Miss Tatsuta."Right, Fatsuta almost caught it in that fight--maybe she did and it just hadn't caught up to her yet. You'd almost forgotten. And yet, that morning, you'd threatened to drop her like Little Boy. You don't know what to say to that. Ikazuchi kicks her little feet and throws a stone, plunking somewhere out in the dark. "We were scared. But seeing Miss Tenryuu trying not to cry... that was the worst." You frown. Crazy one-eyed sword bitch always did have this gaggle nipping at her heels, didn't she?"So," she continues bravely, wiping her eyes at yet more tears coming unbidden. "We tried to cheer her up. And... well, you look like you need cheering up too."You turn back to look at her as she wings another stone. Finally, with a huff through your nose, you pick up another of your own and fling it after. "I don't know what I'm gonna do," you admit, staring intently out into the black water. "I can't find it, I can't shoot it, I can't kill it. All I can do is--is watch." Watch her get taken from you. "'Let you in?'" Ikazuchi asks, winding up to hurl another stone--it glances off at a shallow angle, tumbling off her palm early.
>>1006425>AuntieDon't you mean, "big sister Kongou dess", spooky sleeves?
>>1006503"Release later," you tell her absently. "Don't let it tumble off your fingertips, this isn't baseball. Gotta snap your elbow for distance." She picks up another, and tries again, and you nod as it sails out and disappears into the murk. "Good. And... yeah. I think she's going to try to leave. Soon."She frowns, peering into the pile intently, sifting through to find the perfect rock to hurl into the sea. "Is she mad?""No," you say emphatically. "No! She's scared. Scared of--of herself. Of hurting me. Of hurting anyone." Of hurting everyone. You're almost sure she was about to ask you to put her down, last time it came up. You're also almost sure you'd have thrown her out the window if she tried. The destroyer pauses. "Does she want to go?"You don't even need to say anything, lips tight as you shake your head. Of course not. How do you explain this to her? You can't tell her Naka's secrets. However you hate it, however much they drag her down, they're hers to hold. "...Then chase her." You look up, and she gives a nervous giggle. "Chase her!" She repeats. "Sometimes, girls want to be chased. Akatsuki would love this..." "Chase her, how?" What, dive into the ocean and punch the kraken in the teeth? "How do you chase someone who's trying to get away?""You're sure she wants to be with you?" she asks. You nod angrily. "Then just don't let her. Help her, be there for her. It's romantic!""How do I know when to chase her?" You ask. "She needs space, I can't just..." She stands up, dusting off her skirt, and gives you a little pat on the hat, mussing your hair. "You're a nice man. You'll know." With that, she throws one last stone, skipping three times before slipping out of view, and leaves just as quickly as she came. Chase her, huh?.....A few hours later, Naka should just be coming out of her trance. Light is just peeking over the horizon as the sun rises, and you're just finishing your long walk back into the port. It's funny. When you first met her--when she confronted you in the lunch room, what feels like a lifetime ago, you remember your lip curling into a wicked sneer. You told yourself, 'I'm gonna get that bitch.'And with the tape recorder in your back pocket, rolling the engagement ring between your fingers, you resolve that you're going to do just that.

[x] Have them stay in the truck- you’ll just drop off your gear and be right back. You shake your head, causing all three of them to freeze. “Stay in the truck, I’ll be right back.” you order, getting you blank looks from the two little ones- nurnberg nods and climbs back in. The destroyers though… They both start trying to stare you down, Max’s impassive look doing almost as much as Lebe’s pleading one. You shake your head again. “Stay with Yamato and Nurnberg, I’ll be right back out.” You repeat. Neither of them make moves to comply. Unfortunatley for them, you’re impatient. You step over to them, both on the same side of the truck as you, and pick up Lebe first, planting her back in the seat next to Nurnberg, who reaches out to put a hand on her shoulder as you back out of the cab and turn to Max. Who’s summoned her outfit. It almost sends your heart into your throat- but her weapons are all pointed well away from you, and she’s not moving, her arms folded across her chest, her look clear- she’s not getting back in the truck. You smile down at her, almost- almost- admiring her blatant defiance, though all that weight can’t be good on her injured leg. “So that’s how it’s gonna be, huh?” You ask. “I’m going with you.” She responds, her voice even. “Lebe might stay, but I won’t.” “Is that so?” She actually hesitates a split second before nodding. She looks shocked as you reach down to scoop her up, her outfit fading as you do so- judging by how wide her eyes get, that wasn’t her doing, either. You’ll ponder that later as you walk around the SUV to deposit her squarely in Yamato’s lap. “You sit there, I’ll be right back.” You state as you do so. “But-” “But nothing. I won’t even be a couple minutes and I trust Yamato with my life.” You respond. “That good enough?” She nods after a second. “Fine.” If you didn’t know any better you’d swear she was spoiled as hell. You end up having to hammer on the door with the butt of Fenrir before the music turns down and Crab opens it, his welding hood up. “bout goddamned time you fag.” He says. “I was fucking busy.” You say, stepping in. “The fuck do you want?” “I got your shit.” He says, pointing to a pair of large black pelican cases. “You fucking owe me.”You eye them both. “Is that-” “I fucking built the things myself. They’re to your spec, within a couple millionths.” “And the other one?” “Same fucking deal, plus a couple things I figured you’d like. I got better toys. Hot saw with metal cutting teeth. Anyway, get your shit and get out, I’m busy.” “I need to drop off my shit.” You say, heading back to the armorer’s cage.“You want me to do those mods to your fucking toy while it’s here?” He asks. “I got some ideas to bring it in line with what you wanted.”  Go for it. Nah, I’ll handle it.
>>1006559> Go for it.Let's see if Crab's got the mojo, or if the mojo is actually necessary to work on Fenrir
>>1006559> Nah, I’ll handle it.A man must handle his own gun.

>>1006559[x] Go for it.

>>1006318>next main thread
Naka's maximum range is 5,000 nautical miles at 14 knots. Harder's is 11,000 nautical miles surfaced at 10 knots. Harder only has to go slightly faster to keep up with Naka, while still maintaining a higher maximum range.That's a chase he can win.
>>1006559>[X] Nah, I’ll handle it.

What sort of ship cats do you think our girls like?
[x] Go for it.You stop to think for a second before nodding. “Yeah, go for it.”He points over at a steel worktable. “Leave it over there. Let me guess, you haven’t cleaned it since you last shot it either.” “Well, I just got the fuck back from guam, so…. Fuckin no.” “Figures. Fag. Alright, I’ll take care of it. If I can’t get it apart I won’t fuck with it at all. You can’t replace the barrel or the breech, right?”You nod. “Yeah, both of those are fucking one-off.” “Fuckin typical. Ok, fine, I’ll handle it. Want me to call you when it’s done?” You nod. “If you could, it’d be fuckin nice.” “Ok, fine. Now go back to chasing ass or whatever the hell it is you do.” He says, turning the music back up to ear-splitting volume. You drop the rest of your equipment on the table in the arms locker- you and crab are the only ones in and out of there anyway, you figure, and you can tackle the mess later. He’s already turned back to whatever he’s working on as you leave, the blinding white light of the welding arc lighting the ceiling above you, casting odd, gigantic shadows of his welding hood. Stepping outside is a welcome relief from the music- you like it loud, Crab likes it lethal. At least, damn near. The truck is running, with music playing as you get in. A local station, some flavor of the happy J-pop bullshit you can barely tolerate. Both of the destroyers seem to enjoy it- though Max is clearly somewhat miffed at you. She can deal, you think. Afterall, you’re not her father. Fuck that, that’s Settle’s gig. “Ok, where to?” “There’s always the mess hall.” Yamato offers. “What about that place in town?” You ask. She shrugs. “Do you want to go like that?” “What do you- oh.” You say, looking down. The blood on your combat shirt where you got hit is still there, though the wound itself is bandaged. There’s a small spot of red on the gauze where it’s bled through, but it looks like it’s not still bleeding. You’re also covered in dirt and sand, and probably smell terrible to boot.  Yep! Into town! Let’s just go to the mess.

[x] Yep! Into town!You think about it for a second, then shrug. Fuck the haters, right? “Into town!” You declare, stepping on the gas a bit hard as you turn out of the armory lot and make for the gate. “What’s even open?” Yamato asks. “Cocos?” You shrug- there’d been talk of a 24 hour schedule there, owing to how much business the shipgirls brought in- but it ain’t always your thing. You’d just as soon a good burger, but figure the odds. “There’s Nawlins.” “Hmm.” Yamato says, thinking. They’re a BBQ and Beer joint- who did adopt a 24 hour schedule to accommodate the base better. It’s been paying off too- you know for a fact Hornet eats there pretty frequently, and Arizona will occasionally grab an escort and head there. Even if they eat there once a month, it’s enough to pay the bills for the extended operation time, and then some. You’re stopped at the gate by the guards. “Sorry Lt, it’s regs.” the lead guard, a corporal, apologizes, taking your ID and looking in the SUV. “uh… actually, hang on, sir.” He says, holding your ID a second. “There a problem, marine?” You ask. He nods. “Yessir, there is. Admiral Settle phoned us about a half hour ago, you’re not to leave post.” “What.” He nods again. “Sorry sir, he said it was a security thing and you’d get it. He said if there was anything you wanted from off post, to let us know and we could send a runner, but you’re not to leave the base.” “Anything?” “Within reason, sir.” He clarifies quickly- there went the hookers and blow you’d have asked for otherwise.  Send a runner to pick up an order anyway, you can eat somewhere on post.  You can probably sneak off base anyway. Not from this gate, but there’s others.
>>1006919I have an image of that as a almost-but-not-quite mustache that has only one purpose in life- helping filter coffee. Now we know where the permastuble comes from!

>>1006997>WIPWork in Porngress, from the looks of it
Trying to find the last nakatime writeup (the one previous to this current thread). Any Anon feeling helpful?
>>1006990If we can make the dumbasses questioning our requisition items go barking into a pit of troll dolls, I think we can justify feeding them a noodle cart. One super-dreadnought, one light cruiser, and two destroyers is practically a task force, and in those words and cost comparisons we can pull this off.
>>1007004Can we also get them those little ice cream cones?
>>1006997Going out on a limb, I'm guessing this is for you guys' MaidRpg sessions. If that's true, then its obvious that fap angel isn't on the left, because no Greek female has that nice of an ass.
For anyone unaware, chapter 6 of AWOL has gone up since the last main thread, and chapter 7 is damn near done currently.http://pastebin.com/aneyCn6J
>>1007012Yes. Thank you for stating the obvious. Any other insights, anon?>>1007030Oh ho, it's not MaidRPG.It's KCQ artwork he requested.
>>1007043...That means meido cosplay!
>>1007027what is going on in this picture
>>1007071When a plane went down, their home carrier would reward the return of its pilot with ice cream.
>>1007079but that's a murican pilot?
>>1007093the Lure of Ice Cream knows no boundaries or race, nation, or terror-from-the-deep-ness.
>>1006997I'm going to guess Arizona to the left and Yamato to the right, simply because left is showing off the butt and right is overall much bigger.
>>1007106>Implying Planefag would commission Yamato and not his ultraneetwaifu Shoukeine
>>1007111Kongo and Tenryuu
>>1007112Also incorrect.>>1007115You'll get it someday, I'm sure.And why the hell would *Deme* of all people request Yamato? That's Ghost's thing, not the Greek's.
>draw a girl>call her a boat>oh, and now she's a maid toogod dammit wapan
>>1007118Saberface 1 and Saberface 2, obviously.
>>1007118Shoukaku and Hornet?
>>1007118It's been so long that I don't actually remember the relevant characters.
>>1007118I bet you know a lot about the Greek's thing, Ms. Neco
>>1007079Yeah, a gallon of the cold stuff for each pilot. The pilot in the Hoppo pic is Killer Kane, he was worth 95 litres.
>>1007118Ok, so I remember reading somewhere that planefag's weak to megane. The only boatslut that fits the description that I know of is Ooyodo and I dont think we've seen her this quest. Is she at least one of them?
>>1007118btw in the interest of constructive criticism that hand and arm on lefty is pretty tiny, especially when put right next to that massive ass.
>>1006900fwiw, i genuinely miss your threads
>>1007118Then it's obvious. It's show cock and arizona.
>>1007138Well their is Kirishima too, sexiest of the Kongo sisters.
>>1007138Remember folks! Arizona has reading glasses for when she does paperwork.>>1007142It is prety scrawny yeah
>>1005656Hory sheetIt's back
[x] Send a runner to pick up an order anyway, you can eat somewhere on post. “Fine. Let us get an order together, have one of your guys draw a truck.” “A truck, sir?” “You know how much these girls can put away?” He turns pale- the rumors, such as they are, aren’t all confirmed to everyone- most people aren’t aware of just how much a shipgirl can eat. Thank god, you think, that none of the carriers are here- Hornet can put away about six dozen double quarter pounders in the time it takes you to eat two. And the fries. And the drinks. At least it won’t all go to her thighs, you think. The runner- a private, with a fresh MCT haircut- was smart enough to bring a notebook. Kid must have worked as a waiter once upon a time- he takes the long order down just fine, reads it back, and then takes off, a government credit card secured in a pocket on his IOTV. Leaving directions, you decide to all return to the German girl’s new rooms to eat. You and Yamato sit in the living room as they explore their new rooms a bit- Z1 and Z3 quickly laying claim to the bed, leaving Nurnberg the fold-out couch you’re currently on. She shrugs when Yamato apologizes, saying it’s better than she’s had in quite a while. The corner rooms have a reasonable view of the docks, where you can see repair work ongoing to the steel ships moored out there, Yamato’s old drydock occupied by a tico. She looks at it for a while before turning away. You’re about to ask if she’s alright when there’s a knock at the door. The destroyers- both exploring the kitchen- freeze at the sound. You file that one away- probably not a response you wanted to see- and move to open it, finding the runner there with a cart. He looks a bit harried. “This isn’t all of it, sir.” He says, helping to roll the cart into the room. “I’ll have to make another trip at least, maybe two.” “That’s fine, marine.” You say, nodding. “Get to it, they’re gonna be pretty hungry.” 1/2
>>1007168gb2 Dreamworld cunt
>>1007131shoukaku was a feint. planefag wants to rasp his stubble against hayashimo's tights.
“Yessir.” He responds- probably hoping you didn’t catch him staring at Nurnberg and Yamato. But you did. Oh, you did. The Germans have all clustered around the cart- you have to hand Yamato the paper and foil trays over the destroyer’s heads. “You girls go sit down, we’ll get this.” “We can help!” Lebe insists. “Let us help?” She seems so desperate you nod, allowing her to take your place in pulling the trays from the cart and hand them over to Yamato, who opens them up and sets them on the counter, putting some on the table as she decides what they’ll start on. You’ll probably get a plate yourself- though you don’t even count on that. There’s easily better than a hundred pounds of food there on the table by the time it’s all said and done, with paper plates and plastic utensils from Yamato’s room rounding out the settings. “Dig in, girls. it’s only gonna get cold.” You say, smiling along with Yamato as the three hungry ships help themselves. Given the way they dig in- about like one of Crab’s fabled hot saws going through a side of beef- you’d say it’s appreciated. It almost- Almost- makes you forget that Settle is gonna give you nonstop shit about this whole deal. But that’s alright, you got his range and heading- he’s got nothing you can’t counter. Afterall, you do talk to Arizona. You know what she’s bought.
>>1007180>Arizona bought something. RIP Settle.
>>1006997Which one is Essex?
>>1007180>what she’s bought.!!!
And that's it from me! Haha! Brought back some memories, man. I kinda miss doing regular runs, but with school I can't figure out where I'd work them in. Shame. For anyone wondering- IDK if this'll restart things or not. It's honestly something I wanted to run just because, catch a change of pace from my usual and maybe do something y'all would enjoy. Don't know if you did or not, but hopefully you had fun! Anyway, if we start seeing regular KCQ again, I guess I'll see you guys there! As always, gents, hope you enjoyed, and cheers!
>>1007186Maybe she's took a que from Harder...
>>1007195what did she bought?
>>1007195Next Time, Hate takes Yamato and the Zs to DIDNEY WORL?
>>1007186>>1007191>>1007201This was actually brought up a long, long time ago. Before Bonin I think, even.
>>1007195Much appreciated!Now I have to go and reread so goddamn much stuff.
>>1007195thanks for the run
>>1007195You did good work.I hope you do this more regularly, even if Deme never pays his denbts.
>>1007195as much as i enjoyed, it made me realise how much i miss the greek>>1007205like i remember that goddamn long ago
>>1007197Seems unlike her. >>1007205Unless it was baking then I've got no idea.
Since we're done with the thread, one more write up for the night.Everyone kept asking about Bat Lead and Akagi.I deliver exactly what you asked for.You can thank the cuntwaffle who made that Akagi scale model way earlier in the thread for giving me the idea.Akagi x Bat Lead smut.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1t-OvW0lFYlXJayMTt6pGmbtUwx-R9mhegm9o82riIaE/edit?usp=sharingAnother set of Essex write ups are probably going to drop on twitter in the next week so there's that too.
>>1007195Well fuck, I get off of work and miss the thread.
>>1007195good job ghost
>>1007221i dont know what to think
>>1007222Good, you're not wanted in it.
>>1007221HOW MANY FUCKING EUPHEMISMS FOR COCK DO YOU KNOW, JESUS
>>1007238Too bad, I'm here anyway. At least I'm not Catte dropping smut in here
>>1007195It was nice to see this again, thanks ghost!
>>1007245At least Catte actually contributes, you fuckwaffle.
>>1007195Hope to see you again soon. Been too long! Thanks a ton.
>>1007245At least Catte can WRITE smut!
>>1007245The smut is a *good* thing, cunt
>>1007245lol still salty everybody hates your shit?
>>1007245Bruh, I'm not his biggest fan by any means but that's an amazingly weak comeback>>1007195Side note, Ghost, wanna hear my two biggest gripes with Rebound? The thing as a whole was great, but there were a couple things that bugged me.
>>1007242Listen. Let this image be an explanation.>>1007252Much to planefag's eternal salt :3
>>1007245You are a sad, sad pathetic shell of a man.
>>1007262>88 pages of smutJesus christ pls share
>>1007260Absolutely! Keep in mind the Russian thing is something we're... developing. It is NOT "Hurr Russians bad" Just throwing that out for you!
>>1007281ONLY WHEN IT IS FINISHED ANON.ONLY. WHEN. IT. IS. FINISHED.Because that 51 page document at the top?It's still not done just end me please.(Also that image is out of date. It's closer to 150 pages now.)
>>1007285Is it "hurr rogue russian intelligence services are bad"?
>>1007221I'm still surprised you forgot yaranaika in that writeup.Of all the memes.
>>1007294>150 pages of catte smutIf it's anything like your picture of Fapangel and the Admiral I can't wait.
>>1007258Not at all. >>1007260Seeing that I'm exhausted and recovering from a head cold, it's about the best I can do for now.>>1007256>>1007262to be fair, it is worth having Catte around just to make PF salty over the smut. >>1007294150? damn girl.
>>1007294It just shows how devoted you are to your husband, catte. Its a good thing.
>>1007297I get the impression it's more "Russian's aren't inherently bad but good god do they go full retard when they panic also maybe a bit of hurrr"
>>1007245Fluff, deme's said his one wish on SB was forvyou to be threadbanned from the KCQ thread for stirring up shit.We can't kick you out of here, but just know your presence isn't appreciated.
>>1007303how much of Planefag ramming Catte ass do you want to read?
>>1007305You've ruined enough threads with your existance, fluff. Go get a hobby.
>>1007313As much of it as I can get, I lost my fucking shit reading the batlead stuff.
>>1007285>Keep in mind the Russian thing is something we're... developing. It is NOT "Hurr Russians bad"Funny you mention that, because that was the biggest thing.I outright stopped reading when I hit that. I sighed, tabbed away, and did something else for a half hour or so to build up the resolve to go back and force myself through it. Discovering that that segment was only a transition and not the remainder of the piece was a huge relief. I just, I got more than my fill of 'evil russians kidnapp magical little girls' from strikers 89 and pj witches. Way more than my fill. I'm seriously wondering if you used to have a little sister with magical powers who has stolen by russians and the experience left you traumatized. I'm sure you're a good enough writer to weave some explanation that makes their over-the-top behavior understandable, but that's after the fact. On its face, it was just groanworthy. If I wanted to read about max and lebe getting abused by military officials the sad panda has plenty of material in that vein.It's just a pet peeve of mine with kantai collection stories, edgy fucks just flock to the idea. 'hurr bdurr shipgirl scrapping yards' doesn't win you any favors either....Anyway, like I said, everything else was great, I just got overly peeved by that.The other thing feels more like an oversight that came from how long it took you to write- namely, how everybody acts super surprised about the Abyssals having ground troops. I'm guessing you wrote that bit before, you know, Iwo Jima. That place that's full of Abyssal ground forces that people have been fighting for a week or so by the time of Rebound. And also before the boarding action in Sunda Strait.Like I said, just a minor continuity goof that stood out to me.I also still think that posting it when you did, where you did, was a mistake- especially since people showed up to the thread who had never seen it before just like I was afraid was gonna happen.
>>1007306>>1007313I hate you all so fucking much.That's it. The meidos can wait. I'm sketching NTR for this dead fucking quest tomorrow.>>1007319Glad you enjoyed it!Sorry to disappoint, the rest of the smut is actual smut and not Nasu smut..And Yes.The entire preflight checklist and take off is accurate. I found the manuals even.Yes.The dogfight at the end, it's all dialogue and scenario taken from Top Gun.
>>1007313All of it
>>1007341So you're going to draw deme fucking keine while you sit crying in the corner?
>>1007341Thats the spirit.Draw yourself catte, these faps aren't gonna work themselves.
>>1007341>Not a nasu copypaste with words changed
>>1007341Hahahahahahahahaha. I came here to laugh at you Halley.
A M E R I C A NMERICAN
>>1007367Here's a better image.
>>1007341Catte's so tsun for planefag she NTRs herself because it's not like she actually liked you, p-p-planebaka!
>>1007341>That's it. The meidos can wait. I'm sketching NTR for this dead fucking quest tomorrow.So it's gonna be DemeXKota GOOSH GOOSH style?
>>1007341AWWW, CAN IT NECO, YOU GET OFF ON THIS SHIT.
>>1007300I thought something was missing but couldn't tell what.
>>1007386I know what I'm about. The catte does too.
>>1007399It's attention, so of course she does. Not a very complicated cat.
For those who are interested, here's the latest Bamalama chapterhttp://pastebin.com/BLzN7kQi
>>1007405She's just getting fussy cause deme hasn't run lately so she's low on attention. You'd think that being married to her own personal waterbead would be enough but nooooo
>>1007334If you don't want Russians to be depicted as awful people from an awful shitstain the size of a country, convince them to not be awful people from an awful shitstain of a country irl.
>>1007334That's all fair, yeah. Like I said, the biggest thing I know is the Russia thing- it is not lol, russia bad, but it's designed more to help lead into kind of a look at how the war is affecting nations- the emotional response it's eliciting, I guess. I don't wanna go too much farther into it here than that. As for posting it on SB... I mean, to be fair, where else was I going to post it? At least, like this, a chunk of you guys knew about it, had a chance to read it- and there's always going to be guys who straight up aren't interested in writeups and would have asked about things anyway. Poor defense on my part, I guess, but that was kinda my thought process.
>>1007412obviously the answer is to waifu catte more.
>>1007423Well it was also put on a couple of the Twitter's, so not like SB was the only place people could find it.
>>1007245get fucked fluff.
>>1007423Just getting planefag to actually fucking retweet it would have been enough of an attempt imo, but he never did. Or just waiting, though I understand what that's not attractive as a writer.And yeah, I can get that you're trying to go somewhere with it, but you haven't gone there yet and even if you do it's the first impression. O well, I'm not pretending I speak for anybody but me on this count at least.Also, that one ship that was still billowing steam was meant to be one of the Kirovs, yeah?>>1007431Even goddamn esper retweeted it! But not planefag.
Before anybody asks, there is no Destroyer Dad at the moment. Shiggy is kinda holding at 90% done, though!Also just got a wonderful surprise for the next thread of KCQPS, if anybody here reads it.
>>1007438Your first mistake is assuming planefag cares about this quest anymore. Dude has had a rough year, we will be lucky if he comes back for longer than he did for swqs revival.
>>1007500I can wait and hope.
>>1007520>>1007500>having faith in an AsukafagAt least his taste in NGE girls is good (Rei a shit! A shit!)
>>1007520We need a KCQ of that picture....>>1007529U wot m8?
>>1007540Funny you should post that picture. Scribs did one for Rebound, but he's redoing it. Unbeknownst to him, I still have the original copy he gave me. Not sure if he's cool with it being posted, but I'll ask.
>>1007558Yamato vs German ship trio for the seat of being Hate's Valkyries.I kind of want now. Also had a oldy but goody as well and hope it shows up too.I wish Lebe has more lines!
>>1007587I still love the censored pile of... something in there. Well, that and the sentient flame.
>>1007624TINY DD DAUGHTERUS CANNOT INTO FOOD MANUFACTURE
>>1007624We know the DDs are Daughterus but what about Nurnberg? Also if they are as good at cooking as Frank's daughterus, Settle is going to catch a hell of a time with paperwork and dealing with Fire Marhalls
>>1007642Frankly I'm more interested in seeing what happens when Hate's rescuees finally meet Naka.They were captured by the Abyssals, and Musashi even forced to fight for them against her will, so maybe they can help give Naka some perspective on her situation that others couldn't.
>>1007666Plus, you know, that destroyer we captured. A live prisoner is kind of a gamechanger even past what's in max and lebe.
>>1007672True. IIRC, she seems like she wasn't a willing Abyssal in the beginning, and was broken down, but still isn't really accepted by most Abyssals.
>>1007666>>1007672Oh yeah that too, that goes without saying though it s one of the small SOL moments i enjoy.>>1007682Makes me wonder how many got converted like that.
>>1007633Even when they're witches, it'd seem. >>1007642I think that's largely going to be up to the threads. But we'll see. >>1007666Funnily enough, Nakaposter and I have talked about that pretty extensively. So have Erebus and I...
>>1007709By who from the POV of Nurnberg or Hate?
>>1007717For Nurnberg? Probably a couple of different POVs.... I've been considering her character arc for a while, I think I've decided on where it ought to go.
>>1007731I don't know whether to be excited or scared?Might have to fight the Yamato
>>1007709It goes without saying Melp and the terrible twosome will be involved in anything related to Naka's condition.Though I've actually come to see those two bints slightly differently after thinking on it. "Ships are themselves and the memory of their crews", and the crews of those two ships basically went insane with lead poisoning. Thus, Terror and Erebus are basically the equivalent of human children who injested or were exposed to high levels of lead and became violent due to how lead affects the human brain. So I no longer believe they are irredeemable, simplyvanother level of victim, though redemption will probably be hard to achieve with their current mindsets and actions.
Wait, wait. So what in the fuck did i miss? When did we find Musashi?! Fuck get sick for three days and you apparently miss everything around here.
>>1007768Read ghost's novel, rebound linked in this post>>1005745
>>1007775There's fucking novella now? Gods damn i thought Planefaggot decided he hated this shit or something, fuck.
>>1007768Ghost write up, In which Hate follows Fronk's footsteps and acquires daughterus.And yes, he's still in denial.
>>1007782I like how yet again Ghost takes up a concept abandoned by Gap-an-elf for no reason.
>>1007760Lead poisoning, starvation, and exposure. Don't forget the starvation and exposure.
>>1007787He does it better though. Straight up.
>>1007844Look i still totally agree with you. Problem is, if he WON'T post then the content does not happen. If the content does not happen the quest keels over dead. This is literally the first time in 7 months I've seen hide or hair of this quest. I didn't even know that you had written a novella or done anything in the intervening time. I probably would have missed this if i didn't decide to check /qst/ before going to vomit...again.
>>1007411>>1007411Bama a cute!
>>1007231Sometimes I wonder too
>>1008033>Aussie fleet fucking never.
>>1008053I NEVER ASKED FOR EM>>1008062I'm looking into things
>>1008064Honestly at this point taking control of this quest from Gap-an-elf is probably going to be the only only way that it ever moves forward.
>>1008067yeah like fuck I'm volunteering for thatNah I was looking into writefags
>>1008070Like i said, its the only way the quest moves forward, or we get once every 2 months an update/writefagging. Not saying you should volunteer, i don't think anyone ever will.
>>1008072I might- MIGHT- run Hate gaiden till He gets back on his feet, just to keep it going. Problem is unless I run a lot of shit in the past, I can't really go forward too much, ya know?
>>1008074You have already advanced the plot by a lightyear with that novella alone mang. Im just sad there is no Nakatime after 7 months. Literally the only thing keeping me invested in the quest after all of this time. I want those two to be happy GOD FUCKING DAMMIT!
>>1008076there was a nakatime in this thread though?
Dang, I hate missing threads because of work. Glad to see all of you are still chugging along with us, at least!If anyone is still interested, Akigumo's Sketchbook still has two more chapters to go, so I hope you look forward to it!
>>1008077Ah well shit sorry been trying to read the novella inbetween sessions of vomiting. Fucking random chesseburger put me down for three days now.
>>1008082hey no worries mate, get well soon
>>1008082If you get the chance, let me know what you think! Always looking for feedback.
>>1008111I liked it alot. Personally don't know really how the Abyssals got their hands on Musashi considering other writeups, had her killing the shit out of them, but whatever, minor things. Also the sheer amount of DAWWWWWWWWWWWW you put into the little destroyers is, as always adorable.
>>1008114I'm fairly certain the Ghost's novel is the first story in KCQ to feature Musashi in any notable fashion, unless she was in one of the stories posted completely anon that i may have missed.
>>1008116I think there were random CNN reports that mentioned something fighting abbyssals in the South China sea and we all assumed it was Musashi.
>>1008116There was one writeup where someone mentioned the combat signature or some such shit of a pair of destroyers fighting an abyssal Heavy Cruiser in the South Pacific giving off the readings that Yamato would. I assumed that this was Musashi. But hey like i said little problems.
>>1008076same here, although those nakaposts did get me into reading a bit about this quest.>>1008082>Fucking random chesseburger put me down for three days now.I'm genuinely curious about how this is even physically possible.how can a mere burger put down a person for three days straight? what is that burger?
>>1008252by that burger being a Salmonella Slider
>>1008252Probably an undercooked one. Was a chophouse cheddar from the Whataburger in mah shithole town.
>>1008128FYI, that was a chapter of Merc's Destroyer Dad where the daughtereu of the week was Kiyoshimo and she spooped out and gave off the signature.>>1008121I dont remember the discussion attributing it to Musashi, but I know Deme and the writeups never confirmed who or what it was.
>>1008128I think that was the DD what wants to grow up into a BB.
>>1008121I vaguely remember there being a writeup about Musashi thatwas soundly rejected by pretty much everybody, but that was ages ago and I might be thinking of something else entirely. Something about Musashi being Filipino just because she was brown? Dunno.>>1008074As fun as this thread was, I think that'll kill the quest even deader honestly. Shoveling more material that fap angel has to read and account for is just gonna smother it all, at least by my uninformed outsider's reckoning.
>>1008505>will kill this questLmao
>>1008111WITCHES SEQUEL WHENI miss writing for those ;_;
>>1008526I know people have doubts, and not without reason.But saying 'oh, he'll never get it going again' and continuing to laugh at those who still are holding out hope doesn't exactly boost deme's flagging morale.
>>1008093Much thanks, Anon
Next thread when?
>>1008651Maybe if this wasnt going to be the third time he's dropped a story despite spitting hot fire about his work in qtg, youd have an argument
Something I tossed out a few months back; had an idea back when PF was running regularly and decided to run with it during his hiatus. Dubious canon status until Ghost or PF says otherwise."Bad Fish": http://pastebin.com/dPaG4t87Might do more one-shots like this if people like the idea enough. I have one for CV-12, Jeremiah O-Brian, and Pampanito on the back burner as well.
>>1012747Thank fucking God! I had utterly forgotten about that.
