So, news!

Nothing really major here, haha. Been looking at airbrushes for models, but that's a whole separate thing- and of course, I'm broke. Again. oh well, that's how these things go, I guess.

http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Strike%20Witches%202016 Archive here!

==========================================================================================================================

Without combat sorties, you're finding there's painfully little for you to actually do. Aboard a USN carrier, you could still act as a landing spotter, at least, but here you can't even do that- you don't know IJN procedure well enough yet. You're less worried about yourself and more worried about Kyou though, as she alternates between pacing the cabins and sitting sullenly next to you. You've flipped on the lone TV in the cabins, though you're really just using it as background noise, honestly- the show itself is a bit difficult to follow, and you're pretty sure you picked it up sometime in it's midseason, so a lot of what's happening doesn't make much sense.

At the moment, she's pacing again, looking out towards the flight deck as the thump and roar of another aircraft launch penetrates through the ship's structure to reach you. Just because you're being held back doesn't mean anyone else is- if anything, the operations tempo has increased.

"This is intolerable!" Kyou finally says, ceasing her pacing to drop herself next to you, arms folded. That mask of self-control you saw initially is slipping off more every day, you note- at least, in private. "We should be out there, destroying their aircraft and supporting our troops, not remaining here like this! Chinese wyvern killers or no, they can't beat us anyway!"

You nod- you figure it's better to let her vent now, since she's dispatched Wendy to get the three of you a meal from the galley, and Merlin's up on the bridge, helping install an AI tank for the Kaga's intelligence- she'd indicated she had several shipped in, and that similar installations were going on in the USN as well. You wonder where they're all going to go- the bridge and flag plotting room, you're sure, perhaps the captain's cabins and maybe the CiC. You get a sneaking suspicion she's got enough to install a tank here, as well- at least one.

She sighs. "Instead we must sit here and wait."

"At least till your parents summon us." You respond- something she's indicated she expects to happen. It's a good time for them to do so- though they're probably waiting for the reinforcement drakes to arrive in theater first. Even if you're not flying sorties except for critical ones, it's better to have you available should something happen.

"Of course." She says. "And I fully expect them to have read up on the traditions surrounding the wyvern."

You look over at her questioningly.

"They'll wonder why Muninn remains unpainted." She says, simply. "I had intended to discuss that with you."

You nod. "Makes sense."

"I had some designs in mind." She says. "However, I am aware you'd intended to give Muninn a voice in the matter, and there is also the matter of Wendy's aircraft. Having it painted the same as Muninn would, of course, drive home the concept that she is an inseprable part of our team now. However, allowing her to determine her own scheme may indicate that while we do not intend to ever part with her, she is still going to be allowed some freedom."

You quirk an eyebrow. "You almost make it sound like we own her."

Kyou frowns. "That's not my intent, though it could be argued that's not an incorrect assessment. After talking with her, I was of the distinct impression that this arrangement is almost ideal to her. However, I believe if that is a discussion you wish to have, it must be with her, not me. What do you think of paint schemes?"

[] Let's wait for Muninn and Wendy, then we can discuss it.
[] What did you have in mind?
[] I was figuring we'd just get LSU colors.

[x] Let's wait for Muninn and Wendy, then we can discuss it.

"Let's wait for Muninn and Wendy, then we can discuss it." You say.

"Very well." Kyou says, then stands up again. "I am not sure how you are handling this so well. Does it not bother you to know we could be making a difference right now, and are being held back?"

"We're being held back to prevent them from developing a hard counter to us." You point out. "And we've already shot down sixty odd aircraft. I'd say we've made an impact."

Kyou shakes her head. "The PLAAF alone numbered several thousand combat aircraft." She responds. "According to our best estimates. We have hardly damaged them."

"And there's no way they'd have been able to deploy them all to Korea." You point out. "And we made a difference for those two witches."

"Dragon made the recovery, not us." Kyou responds.

"And Dragon couldn't have done it without us." You say.

Kyou looks over at you, frowning. "I would, of course, find the one pilot who has more patience than myself." She says after a second, sighing. "And that is the great tragedy of our arrangements."

You quirk an eyebrow as she smiles. "We could at least entertain ourselves in other ways, were it not for the possibility of Wendy or Merlin returning at any time."

"Alas." You return with a grin. "The sacrifices we make."

"Not to offend, but I wonder if it is a concern your father has." She says, still pacing.

You shrug- the private life of him and the witches has never held much interest for you- it is what it is. Once, years ago, you'd asked maman about it, but she'd just laughed and shook her head. Her advice had been don't worry too much about what mistakes other people want to make- and if they make it work for them, be happy for them, but don't worry about it.

Still, the characterization of the setup as a 'mistake' has long stuck with you. They're happy together- at least, that's the appearance the put out- but at the same time, you know that none of them really have any time alone, either. Or didn't, anyway- that's changed, of course, since most of the kids have moved on.

You'd comment on it, but Wendy elects to return at that moment, carrying four containers of food.

Kyou smiles and nods at the older witch as she sets the food down. "Sorry that took so long, mum." Wendy says. "They were serving one of the strike elements when I arrived, I thought it better to wait."

Kyou nods. "Yes, it was. Thank you, Wendy." She says, motioning for you. "We will wait to eat if you don't mind fetching Merlin?"

Wendy shakes her head. "Of course not. Back in a flash!" She says, turning and heading for the hatch, moving far more quickly than you've seen.

"I doubt she'll have her own ideas about our heraldry." Kyou says.

[] Probably not, but we have to ask.

[x] Probably not, but we have to ask.

"Probably not." You agree. "But we have to ask."

Kyou shrugs. "If you insist." She says, her tone indicating that she's very much not sure why you have to ask, but willing to do so. She indicates you should sit while Wendy gets Merlin, and smiles when you take a seat next to her.

Wendy and Merlin are back quickly- Merlin's been in the hangars, working on Muninn, and her clothing shows it, the dull gray IJN work coveralls she's appropriated from somewhere unzipped to her waist and tied off, while her green USN undershirt looks pretty dirty- there's a couple unidentified fluid stains on it, and more than a little dirt. She smiles a bit self-consciously and blushes very lightly when she steps in. "Maintnence." She says as an explanation. "Since you're not on nonstop combat sorties, now's a good time to get in some higher order checks."

"How is our aircraft?" Kyou asks.

Merlin smiles. "Oh, in almost perfect condition." She says, walking past the table to step into the head and wash her hands. "The usual wear and tear we'd expect, but nothing out of the ordinary. There's some flash damage to the dividing bulkhead of your centerline bay, but we're probably going to be removing that anyway."

"Why is that?" Kyou asks.

"We'll want the uninterrupted space." Merlin replies. "I never did agree with the change, and that bulkhead isn't important at all. The only thing it lets us do that we couldn't have otherwise is mount two shorter rotary launchers, but those don't matter for you anymore anyway."

"Will this change our combat ability?" Kyou asks.

Merlin shakes her head. "It won't matter to you, but it will matter to the loading crews. It also means you can carry some of the longer systems we have, like air launched tomahawks, and it means if we want to carry things like the EML, we won't have to take it out then."

Kyou nods, pleased enough with the response, then turns to Wendy. "Wendy, we were discussing the paint scheme our aircraft will use." She says, shooting a glance over at you. "We had intended to ask you if you had any ideas or preferences?"

Wendy shakes her head with a smile. "I'm quite sure whatever you decide will be perfectly acceptable to me." She says.

Kyou nods. "I suspected you might say that, though Morgan insisted we ask." She says. "We had also intended to ask Muninn, if that's possible?"

Merlin smiles. "It is." She says, then pauses. "Or will be, anyway. I'll run down to the hangar deck and have the holotanks brought up. I've only got two, so you'll have to decide where you want them. It's a fast install though, shouldn't take me more than twenty minutes?"

"If you'd like, I can get them and you can eat." Wendy offers. "I don't mind at all."

[] You and Merlin eat, and then go get them.
[] That's fine, we'll wait to eat while you do that.

[x] You and Merlin eat, and then go get them.

You shake your head. "You and Merlin eat first, then go get them." You say- Wendy sits quickly, as if obeying an order, and Merlin takes a seat next to her. You stand and pass out the Styrofoam containers, opening them to find rice, grilled vegetables and grilled beef. It's different than you'd have remembered from Japanese food places in the 'states, but similar enough that you don't mind. The beef is overcooked, of course, but that's to be expected- it's not like there's a mess in existence that doesn't just sear the unholy hell out of their beef and call it good. You'd call it a waste, but it's safer than undercooked, you know, and a lot easier. That and you doubt this is very high quality beef to begin with.

Still, it's good enough, and you all eat quickly. With Kyou here, you know there's no limit on how much you're allowed to eat- they'll serve you at any time, just on her orders- but you also know she wants you to do as little as possible to flaunt your 'status'. That involves eating at the same times as the crew, so as to not create extra work for the cooks.

Merlin and Wendy take off pretty quickly after finishing- Merlin seemingly eager to allow you unrestricted access to Muninn and Tessa, and they return just as quickly, Both carrying a cardboard box. "I had two tanks sent for you." Merlin says, explaining. "I'd planned to install them both in the main room here, to allow both Tessa and Muninn to interact with you at the same time, but I can install them in different rooms."

Kyou shakes her head. "I don't believe allowing them access to our bedchambers is a good idea." She says, turning to look at you. "Would you agree, Morgan?"

[] Yeah, best to put them both out here.
[] I'm not sure, it might be nice to have a room where we can talk with them privately.

gonnna call it for the night here, gents! Been sleeping pretty poorly and it shows- kinda konked out on the keyboard there for a bit, haha!

I probably won't be hanging around too much this evening, but as usual, I'll answer questions or comments while I do. Otherwise, till tomorrow, gents, cheers!

[x] Yeah, best to put them both out here.

You nod. "Yeah, best to put them both out here." You agree- the concept of Muninn having all-hours access to you is a bit much.

Merlin smiles, as if reading your thoughts- and unpacks the two tanks, taking about twenty minutes to splice them into the existing communications lines. Both tanks light up almost immediately- one with the now-recognizable form of Tessa, looking slightly disapprovingly at the other- displaying a raven in a tophat.

"Dare I ask?" Kyou says, and Muninn blinks, then shifts to an avatar you'd have guessed watched a bit much matrix- sunglasses, trenchcoat, combat boots.

"No." Muninn responds. "So this is what you do in your off time without me around?"

"We rather enjoyed peace." Kyou says, frowning. "We were discussing our livery."

"Oh! I had the perfect design. Hang on..." Muninn says- then flashes his coat to the most hideous eye-melting neon pink and garish chrome leopard print possible. You're reasonably sure it's the most hideous thing he could have found- though you're sure the bright, shiny colors are part of the reason he's interested. AIs are a lot like witches- they're seperate from any underlying theme, but, like a witch and her familiar, some behaviors will carry over. Crows like bright things- Muninn likes bright things.

"This. But, you know, all over." He says, his avatar shifting to a rotating model of the Wyvern painted in the outlandish scheme.

"I am not allowing myself to be painted like that." Tessa announces, primly. "That is quite possibly the most atrocious thing I've ever had the misfortune of seeing. And that includes the lime green and purple version of the same thing."

"You just have no humor." Muninn retorts. "It's amazing. look how shiny it is!"

"I think it's out of the question." Kyou responds, looking over at you.

[] Yeah, we're not doing that.
[] You do have to admit, it would be distinct.

>>4068813

Ohh, that'd be nice, just a solid chrome silver paint job might be really cool looking.

>>4068843
You're not wrong about that. I just... I guess I expected better since it was an AI but then again, there's the NSA cluster AI and the less said about that the better. But it does point out that these things aren't necessarily sensible by normal person standards.

>>4068868
Hmmmm, while I'm a sucker for the Candy Apple Red I'm not sure if racing stripes would really work on a Wyvern. Perhaps accents of some kind on the tails and the outer edges of the wings so it's still visible even when folded in?
>>
>>4068813
[] You do have to admit, it would be distinct

Chrome with Navy blue or black could look really sharp.
>>
>>4068878
Ooooooh, I can dig that

>>4068878

I do like the idea of Candy Apple Red with Pearl White accents on the wings and tails. It would look particularly sharp.
>>
ok, votes called!
>>
>>4068851
Solid chrome isn't exactly easy on the eyes; but the way WW2 fighters were done with aesthetically placed anti-glare panels would be baller.
>>
>>4068896
It's not. But the Candy Apple Red would be.
>>
[x] Yeah, we're not doing that.

"Yeah, we're not doing that." You respond with a shake of your head.

"I must be the only one here with a sense of style." Muninn says, sighing. "Fine." the model disappears and he reappears.

"Muninn, display the scheme we had discussed." Kyou orders.

Muninn scowls at her, but does as he's told- the wyvern reappears in a gloss-white scheme, similar to the imperial guard's colors, but with a traditional-looking cherry blossom piece done across the aft half.

"That's rather better." Tessa says.

"It's nowhere near shiny enough." Muninn retorts. "What about purple and tiger stripe?"

"Could you not?" Tessa asks, patting down the front of her avatar's maid uniform. "You, clearly, have been spending too much time with Lovelace."

Muninn looks over in disgust at Tessa, who smiles sweetly. "Of course, you could avoid these outcomes, yet you choose not to."

"Just be glad it's not you." Muninn sulks. "Anyway, this is silly. Maybe if it was high gloss I could get behind it."

Kyou shrugs. "I imagine it would be, once it was coated and treated." She says- Merlin nods.

"Flat colors are easier to do, but most of the time brighter colors like this turn out glossy. Dawn Raider was the worst, because of that red wing of theirs. They wanted it flat."

"Of course, we have not heard Morgan's thoughts, either." Kyou says. "Do you have anything in mind?"

I liked the idea for bright colours but nit in muninn's retina-annihilator scheme.

>>4069007
Though i'm not opposed to incorporating kyou's stuff on there if we can do so without it looking like ass, yeah. Chrome is also a nice compromise. Also shiny gets bird-son on side.

This, along with Kyou's cherry blossoms would be great.

I am more a fan of a muscle car look, but adding some cherry blossoms to it would probably compliment it quite well.

Here >>4068986

Maybe make it look like the cherry blossom on white is wearing/chipping away to show chrome underneath

wait is this a vote or are you just asking to clarify what we're after
>>
>>4069102
just asking to clarify. Stuff like this I do wanna be more careful with
>>
>>4069100

Partially but also because I think that the sharper angles on the Wyvern really wouldn't go well with Chrome.
>>
>>4069108

I wouldn't having red with racing stripes and Cherry Blossoms though.
>>
Ok, I'm going to narrow this down, based on what I'm reading. Feel free to correct me!

1) WW2 era P-51 Chrome w/antiglare panels and Sakura tailfins
2) Candy-apple red with white racing stripes.

It's between those two?
>>
>>4069123

Yeah, it is at least that's what it seems like to me; I prefer the Candy Apple Red.

>>4069123
Yeah that looks right.

Also, >>4069080, was me. I just switched to my phone now.

[x] Well, I did have some ideas... (write in!)

You frown. "I did have some ideas." You say, leaning forward. "Muninn, can you copy a war-era Mustang scheme onto the Drake?"

"A mustang?" He says. "But that's an army airforce aircraft! You're not going to make me dress up like one of them now, are you?"

"The IJAF and IJN operated the type during the war as well after the home islands were invaded." Kyou points out. "And there is little dishonor in paying homage to one of the most capable American fighters of the era."

"Yeah, but it was an Army fighter." Muninn complains.

"You'll also note it's chrome." Tessa points out. "And, thus, quite shiny. Or is it you intend to complain about any suggestion they make?"

"I-" Munnin starts, then frowns, turning to Tessa and sticking out his tongue. "Yeah, well, you're just mad that maids are silly."

"I'm rather fond of them." Kyou says, shooting a glance over at Wendy. "Besides, I do like the scheme, though if I may, I'd like to preserve the artwork I'd suggested."

"On the vertical surfaces?" You suggest. "The tailfins?"

Kyou nods. "That was my thought, yes."

Merlin leans forward, looking at the modified models that Tessa is projecting- Muninn's sulking. "That's pretty sharp." She says, nodding and leaning back. "And shouldn't be too hard to get done, either."

"Will we be able to do it aboard ship?" Kyou asks. Merlin shakes her head.

"No, there's no room or equipment here for anything like that." She says. "But we can fly to Shimofusa airbase and do it there, that's where the imperial military is thinking of standing up their Wyvern base anyway."

Kyou frowns. "Shimofusa? Not Atsugi?"

Merlin shakes her head. "That's all I know."

"Hm." Kyou says, then shakes her head. "I'm not opposed to it, though perhaps it should wait for the reinforcement wyverns, as most of our work will."

That's going to be it from me for the evening! I know that last update had a pretty long interval, I wanted to make sure we got the paint scheme agreed on (more or less!) before moving on.

So Ghost why didn't the Muscle Car Livery get a mention? Would have at least been nice to have it get mentioned and to see the reactions of the cast to it.

>[x] I think so too.
Welp, sad to see my paint job didn’t win but a -51 style paint job won’t be to shabby either.
>>
>>4069422

Still should have received a mention though. Plus I can actually see it getting vetoed by the ground crew on the grounds of it being able to dazzle pilots that are coming and going as it's sitting on the ramp which could result in a crash. Safety always comes first.
>>
scheme I just thought of, sadly probably too late, is pic related, but with a wolf instead of the lion, and maybe a different colour than orange

re: mustang scheme, we going with naked aluminium and trim colours, or invasion stripes green and bare aluminium?
>>
>>4069814
another late idea is similar to pic related, but completely skeletonised, though not actually painted like the real structure and placement of equipment beneath the skin, the artist could have some fun with making up stuff to disguise and trick onlookers
>>
>>4069814
>re: mustang scheme, we going with naked aluminium and trim colours, or invasion stripes green and bare aluminium?

I am against it, primarily for safety reasons and if the Navy is smart they will likely veto the scheme as well on the same grounds, because for Wyverns you can have a unique livery but the Navy has to approve it first. I can tell you right now that having something that bright on a Flight Deck during Flight Ops is just asking for trouble, as in distract or dazzle a pilot on final and result in a Multi-Million Dollar aircraft either crashing into the sea or striking a Multi-Billion Dollar Aircraft Carrier, not to mention it could dazzle the flight deck crew and could result in someone getting dazzled by it which could result in an engine eating a crewmember; a flight deck is an extremely chaotic place to begin with, adding something that reflects sunlight like crazy would add even MORE chaos and not the good kind either.

Thus we would be FORCED to operate from land bases because of this scheme, which Navy would obviously be against since it limits where you can operate safely from and they would want ALL of their Wyverns to be capable of operating SAFELY from aircraft carriers. So I say it gets a VETO on the safety grounds.
>>
At least, I would assume that the Navy gets the final say on whether or not a Wyvern can be painted in the colors that a crew wants.
>>
>>4069912
>>4069915
....You do realize that there's both a high-gloss crimson red Wyvern AND a Vantablack Wyvern, right? Both of which fit your category of "dazzle". Stop being no fun allowed.
>>
>>4070083

I do realize that, but their's a difference between that and high-gloss Chrome paint.
>>
>>4069912
>>4069915
>>4070136
Dude, if "The Navy" was going to be at all likely to veto it, the literal Admiral in charge of Wyverns, who probably approved all the other paintjobs, standing right next to us wouldnt've given it the nod of approval.

You're kinda just coming across as super salty that your colours weren't chosen, honestly.
>>
>>4070136
>>4070164
Pretty much this. It sounds like you're trying to appeal to Ghost to veto what the thread chose because it wasn't what you wanted.
>>
One thing I am worried about is heat, our jet when we're blasting through the sky at Mach 3 would generate unholy amounts of it. Consider how hot Concorde when it was in flight going Mach 2.02 across the sky. Chromium Sulfate (III) which would be used in the paint for our jet MELTS at 90-degrees Celsius. Compare this to the temperatures that Concorde could generate and realize that we go even faster.

We crack the sound barrier, expect the paint to just stream away from the fuselage and will probably cause all sorts of problems as well. Another issue.
>>
>>4070198
Jesus man just stop.
>>
>>4070198
And the Gloss Cherry Apple Red scheme, like anything that isn't grungey matte grey/black, would show up like a siren on radar due to its complete lack of RAM properties, and thus would,like all of the custom wyvern schemes, never be allowed by the navy.

There's a minimum level of suspension of disbelief needed here.

So you guys would be fine with all questions of why our plane has a paint scheme commonly affiliated with the USAF despite flying a Navy plane? I am not.

That said, here's a more unique option that makes everyone happy: While we do have a primary color of Chrome, we do the Cherry Blossom in Candy Red after being given a Chrome Base with the same being done for the canards, wingtips, and tails. The end result should be like the car pictured which is Candy Red over a Chrome Base. Everybody wins, some people get their Chrome and some people get their Candy Red, plus it adds a level of color that's unique.

But I am still irked over the fact that the Muscle Car look wasn't even mentioned at all.
>>
>>4070299
>makes everybody happy

that compromise makes nobody happy, and frankly while I understand your frustration at you not getting you preferred scheme you are really taking the butthurt over it to an extreme here.

Do you plan to contest every single vote you lose like this?

Dude nah, that doesn't make everyone happy, as evidenced by the fact that it didn't win.

>>4070299
What strange reality are you living in where a compromise makes *anybody* happy?
>>
>>4070312

No but it doesn't seem fair that the muscle car look wasn't even mentioned.

>>4070351

It's a good compromise because the Mustang crowd gets their chrome and the muscle car crowd gets their Candy Red.
>>
>>4070381
...It's literally just your scheme with a token bit of chrome trim.

That's not a good compromise, that's a dismissive token sop. The "Mustang crowd" *wants the Mustang scheme*, not your muscle car scheme with a bit of extra trim.

[x] I think so too.

You nod. "Yeah, I think so too." You agree.

"During the down time, I have prepared a number of documents on our combat performance." Tessa offers. "Perhaps you'd like the access them? I can forward them to your email or to your personal computer directly."

"You can access those?" Kyou asks, sounding a little surprised.

Muninn nods. "Of course. Civilian encryption is a joke, and they're included in the ship's network locations. Don't worry, we haven't looked at anything."

"But you can." You say, and the AI nods.

"Of course." it says. "But any AI could, really."

"Most won't because it would be extremely rude to Kaga." Tessa supplies. "The computers aboard ship are considered hers, so attempting to access one without her permission would be in incredibly bad form. And it's not as if Muninn needs to attract her attention further, is it?"

Muninn mutters something under his breath, but shakes his head.

"If the ship's AI is troubling you, perhaps I should speak to her." Kyou says with a smile. "Afterall, she, like all imperial equipment, technically answers to my grandfather."

"That'd just make it worse." Muninn says.

"What makes it worse is you've turned yourself into the must-have accessory." Tessa comments. "You'll note no other wyvern has this problem, nor do any of my kind."

"Yeah, but you're not me!" Muninn responds.

"I am in an MIU net with the same people." Tessa points out. "And my hardware is identical to yours."

"It is not!" Muninn says. "You only have six core units, I have eight."

"And I can draw on far more distributed units." Tessa says.

"If you two intend to bicker like this constantly, we can have the tanks removed from here." Kyou cuts in, looking at you. "I am sure Morgan agrees."

[x] Siblings fight, it's just how things go.

You shrug. "Siblings fight, it's just how thing go." You say, getting a slight frown in return. Still, you look at the two AIs- trying to channel maman when you and Elizabeth were arguing.

Kyou frowns. "Siblings shouldn't fight this much in front of the rest of their family."

You nod. "I'd rather they bicker here than in flight though."

"We can multitask, you know." Muninn says "Bickering is just one of our talents."

Kyou sighs. "Can we at least shut them off on command?" She asks.

Merlin nods. "Oh yes." She says. "Muninn, shut off for a second, please." She says- and Muninn's tank blinks out. He reappears a second later.

"That was rude." He says.

"Sorry." Merlin responds, then turns to you and Kyou. "That's a hardwired command on the hardware itself, so they can't keep the tank on if you tell it to shut off. You have to specify who you're talking to, though, so it won't just keep powering off if you say shut off."

Kyou nods. "And the second method?"

Merlin motions for you to follow her, and walks around to the tanks, pointing at a covered switch. "That's a hard power shut off." She says. "it disconnects the power supply to the tank. You shouldn't have to use it much, but it is an option."

"One that would be rather jarring, I'm sure." Tessa says. "If it's acceptable, I think I'd just prefer to shut down normally and return to my reading when I'm not expected to be here."

"You can just as easily read there." Muninn says. "Unless displaying an avatar is too much for you to handle while you're reading?"

Tessa frowns. "I can, of course, handle both things. I'm more concerned for your sake. What should happen once the rest of the intelligence learn that their favorite accessory now has a dedicated display tank for interacting with the imperial princess and Morgan Bishop?"

Muninn pauses. "You wouldn't."

Tessa smiles. "I already did." She announces primly. "Of course, I have also offered a few guests a chance to visit using my hardware as well. I should expect they will be rather better behaved than any of yours."

"Guests?" You ask.

1/2
>>
Tessa nods. "Of course. You must understand, among the intelligences, we're rather popular, owing to our position at the front and our close contact with the mother, and all of you. Quite a few of them would love to meet you, and have a chance to speak with you directly. Lovelace is already bragging of his few minutes spent in briefing you."

"That was a male?" Kyou asks. Tessa nods again as Muninn mutters something.

"Lovelace prefers to present as such, yes." She says. "Although he does so in a manner that leaves it up for question."

"Why not simply switch, as Muninn does?" Kyou asks.

Tessa looks at Muninn, then shrugs. "It is difficult to tell." She says. "Though Muninn prefers to remain fluid, instead basing his personality and thought patterns around his namesake."

"Muninn was a raven, not a crow." You point out. Muninn himself shrugs.

"Same thing, more or less." He says. "Corvids are corvids."

You frown- that's not quite right, and you're pretty sure crows aren't gigantic pains in the ass, either. Then again, maybe they are- you don't remember them being too much of a problem, but maman made sure that she fed them every so often, and they liked her. She always claimed they were more than they let on, but you suspect that's just superstition, even with all the things you've seen.

"Regardless, you could put more effort into not being a prat." Tessa says.

"Tessa." Wendy says, and the AI maid blinks.

"Sorry." She says, a second later.

"Regardless, I think that's enough for now." Kyou says, standing up. "I will be going to the combat center to see what I can of the situation over Korea. Morgan, would you mind accompanying me?"

You shake your head, standing up. She keeps up like this, though, you think, you're going to have to get a collar and a leash.

Sorry about the late start guys, had to figure out something for dinner and it took longer than I'd anticipated- I burned the roux a couple times from being in a hurry.

=========================================================================================

Shimofusa airbase looks kind of small from the air, with only one, fairly short, runway and four hangars, it's a far cry from Miramar. There's not many aircraft here either- Shimofusa had once served the IJN as a maritime patrol aircraft base, but was closed in the late 90s. Standing empty for almost 20 years hasn't done it any favors- though you note the runway and buildings look maintained, and there's already construction equipment on the north and south ends of the pad. You can see the construction workers turn to watch your fighter on approach, some of them even getting the other's attention as you touch down.

There's a few other aircraft on the pad here- two white-painted light utility helicopters, both bearing the crysanthemum seal, indicate Kyou's family is here- and the presence of a trio of IJA heavy-lift helicopters indicates that the guard is here in force.

"That's a lot of guard witches." Kyou notes, picking out the ones you can see. "With so many here, my grandfather must be present."

"The emperor?" Wendy asks.

"Yes." Kyou says as your wheels kiss pavement with a squeal. "I had wondered when he intended to meet my partner, though I didn't expect him to be here." She pauses. "Which is foolish, I suppose. He was a pilot too, many decades ago. I am surprised he never made a significant effort to meet your father, Morgan."

It is kind of strange, on the surface- your aunt, Jessica, married into the family after the last war, and has lived in Japan ever since, and Frank was awarded an order of the golden kite 5th class during the war as well. Still, that's not a particularly high award, and wasn't revisited when the emperor opened the higher classes to foreign troops. Still, it's not really worth worrying about- your father got enough decorations from all over that not meeting the emperor isn't that big a deal.

"I never knew he was a pilot." Wendy says.

"Of course. He flew the F11F-1F super tiger during the later part of the nineteen fifties, and stayed in the type until he ascended to the throne in the late seventies." Kyou responds. "His aircraft is still preserved at the Yamato museum in Tokyo Harbor. He has stayed abreast of aviation developments, however. I am sure he isn't just here for us."

You kind of hope not as you follow a ground guide to a position outside a hangar and begin shutting down- the ground crew here seems to be timing themselves, running in with the umbilical link even before your turbines have fully spun down, though they stay well clear of your intakes as they do so.

1/2
>>
"Is this public or private?" You ask. Muninn didn't see any wireless traffic that would indicate civilian news vans, but that doesn't mean they're not there- or that they're not simply forbidden from live reporting, and only equipped with recording equipment.

"Private, I am sure." Kyou responds. "They would have warned us if it were meant to be public."

"That's good." You say, gathering your gear as you unbuckle from the ejection seat and head down the ladder, waiting at the bottom for Kyou- pointedly averting your gaze as she climbs down and setting out the pair of slip-on shoes for her as she hits the pavement.

Sure enough, as soon as you've debarked, you're approached by a group of imperial guard- all of whom pause a respectful distance away while their commander gets closer and bows to Kyou. "Greetings, princess." The man says. "I am colonel Tetsuhara, and have been directed to escort you to your family."

Kyou's bow is somewhat shorter- proper, you're sure. "Allow me to gather my compatriots and you can." she says, her speech somewhat terse. You get the feeling there may be history there- though you're not certain.

The man nods and steps back, and Kyou nods at Wendy, who closes to join you. "I expected as much." Kyou says to you, switching to English. "This isn't formal, but I doubt the guard are happy about it. Grandfather probably decided to come regardless of their ability to prepare the area, and so they're worried about security."

You glance around- while you're reasonably sure there's some locations for a marksman to take a shot from, most of them are at least five or six hundred meters away- and probably watched by the guard present for just such a move. The rest of the base is probably secure- barring an assassin in the ranks, it's likely secure enough that, in broad daylight, there isn't much of a threat.

Kyou smiles as you think. "I wonder if it is as obvious to everyone what you are thinking, or if that is merely part of the MIU link for myself." She says. "I am sure you think that the location here is more than secure enough, especially with this many guard present?"

[x] I think so. I can see a couple ways in, but nothing I'd want to try in daylight with no preparation. You shrug. It's how you're wired, you know- you were, afterall, the child of one of the most feared special operators in the world, possibly the best in her craft. You tend to pick up a lot- and she made an effort to teach you more than enough. Not for the first time you muse you could have made yourself a very, very wealthy man in the criminal world. You shove the thought aside and look around again. "I think so." You say- the biggest security risk you see is the civilian buildings on the far side of the woodlines- and even those, you're sure, are being watched by the troops of the guard. "I can see a couple ways in, but nothing I'd want to try in daylight with no preparation." Kyou smiles. "And I am sure you're thinking like an American as you do so." She says, lightly. "And forgetting that the imperial internal security apparatus is somewhat more effective than your FBI and firearms are rather more rare in the country." You nod- you were figuring that if you were going to take a run at it, something long distance would be your best bet- and even then, there's not too many good positions for it, especially with this many guardsmen about. You're sure there's more than one countersniper team up in perches here- and you'd seen more than one imperial army gunship nearby. You're guided inside one of the hangars- it looks like it's been empty for a while, though, even here, you can see signs of work crews- lifts, welding equipment, and materials laid out to repair and update the building. You count at least eight witches present- plus about a platoon-sized element of imperial guard. Given the number of choppers outside, you figure that's a low estimate, there's probably closer to a company sized group here. Inside, you can see Kyou's mother and father, along with her brother and an older man you assume is her grandfather. Still you look over at her- she gives a tiny nod. "My grandfather." She says, quietly. "I'll try to do most of the speaking, but I expect him to be interested in you, Morgan. His English is excellent, but he's also fluent in French, should you prefer that." "French?" You ask, and she nods. "Rumors say he had a French mistress in the nineteen fifties." She says with a shrug. "If he did, she was gone before my father was born. I'm aware you're fluent in the language, but I am not, nor are my family." "I'm conversational in it." Wendy offers. Kyou nods. "I'd expected as much." "What do you suggest?" You ask. Kyou hesitates. "Of course, greeting him in Japanese would be most proper, though he may appreciate a chance to greet you frankly in a language he knows no one else here will understand." She says. "Grandfather is often stern in public, but remember he was a fighter pilot." [] I'll stick to Japanese, then. Maybe if your family wasn't here. [] He should appreciate French more, then.

[x] He should appreciate French more, then.

"I'm sure he'll appreciate French more, then." You say with a very slight grin.

"While I know it is unnecessary, I do ask you don't embarrass me." Kyou says. "I am unsure how you could, but you understand what I mean."

You nod.

Kyou guides you to a stop about a yard from her grandfather and bows- a move you and Wendy mirror. "Greetings, grandfather." She says. "We are honored by your presence."

"Hmm." The old man responds. "Is this the son of Bishop I've heard so much about from our matrons?"

Kyou nods. "Yes, grandfather. Lieutenant Laroux-Bishop is my pilot and partner."

He nods, then looks at you. "And I'm sure the son of Nyx herself speaks French as well." He says in flawless metropolitan french.

You straighten up. "Of course." You respond, seeing a very, very slight smile tug at the corners of his lips.

"I suspected as much." He says. "I'm told you also make the guard quite nervous. That's unusual."

You nod. "I have since Kyou and I's first flight."

"No shock there. Let's not be too rude, however. We'll have to talk later." He says, then switches back to Japanese. "I'm told your flight is proving to be a boon to our forces in Korea. I've been approached by my command staff about withdrawing you to help instruct our first Wyvern crews." He says to Kyou.

"We will do as directed, grandfather." Kyou says. "Though, if I may, it would be premature to do so without IJN wyverns to teach."

"The navy's beginning selection for crews now." Kyou's father says, and her mother nods.

"And witches are volunteering in incredibly large numbers." She says. "Looking, I'm sure, to meet a pilot like yours."

Kyou shoots a glance over at you. "I imagine their luck should have to be excellent to find one." She says.

Kyou's mother smiles. "Of course. There are already grumblings among your sister's friends about the number of westerners our children seem to be seen with these days. It would be good to have a good traditional couple to play up in the media."

"We've agreed to assist with navy selection for a valkyrie unit." Kyou says. "Perhaps that will help?"

"Perhaps." Kyou's mother says with a nod. "Though, i would ask you think before you elect to keep her for yourself."

"I doubt we'll be allowed to." Kyou responds. "We already have a very capable wingmate, and we do not intend to let her get away from us."

"So I'm told." Kyou's father responds with a slight frown. "Regardless, the army and the navy are both pleased with your performance, and we have had requests from the usual suspects for you to speak with them."

Kyou frowns. "We will do as directed."

"For now, we're told you're here to have your aircraft painted and have Merlin Wells do some work on it?" Kyou's father says. "While that's being done, you will be expected to return to the palace."

"We had planned to remain in quarters here." Kyou responds. "We don't wish to remove ourselves from the troops living arrangements."

Kyou's father nods. "Of course not. But regardless. We have arranged transport."

"I think the lieutenant should ride with me." The Emperor says. "I wish to talk with him."

Kyou looks over at you.

[] I'd prefer not to be separated from my crew.
[] Of course.

[x] Of course.

"Of course." You say with a respectful bow of the head.

They don't say anything else- other than Kyou ordering Wendy to follow her. While it's not legally binding- not really- you see absolutely no reason to counter it, and know that Wendy's just as safe with Kyou as she would be with you- moreso, perhaps. Kyou is far more possessive of the older witch, and is probably a lot more capable of arguing the point with her parents than you are.

Instead you follow the emperor to one of the choppers, noting that the guard, while clearly wary of you, don't make any overt moves to advertise it. Inside the Helo, you're directed to a rearward facing seat, while the emperor sits diagonally across the cabin from you as two guards climb in, one directly across from you, one a seat over. The emperor nods and puts on a headset, plugging it into the panel above him as he straps in. You mirror the action, finding the headset hooked to the side of the seat. The guards, however, leave theirs off, instead simply slipping on ear protectors- they don't need to talk.

"I've always preferred to fly with the doors open. I hope that doesn't bother you." He says in french as the rotor above you starts to turn. "It is one thing I've always been jealous of. Hard to leave the canopy open in a supersonic aircraft."

You nod.

"I'm reliably informed that the decision to fly with my granddaughter was entirely yours." He says. "I'm well aware your family has a history with mine, however I want to make certain of your reasoning."

[x] Kyou and I got along the best on a personal level. That's more important than anything else with a drake.

"She and I got along the best on a personal level." You respond. "That's more important than anything else with a drake."

"I see." The emperor responds. "So the rumors of your relationship?"

You hesitate, unsure exactly how to respond- the old man smiles. "I was a fighter pilot too, once." He reminds you. "And chased my fair share of witches."

You nod, and he chuckles. "Regardless, I'm sure she would have never agreed in a case where she wasn't equally happy. I'm told the Wyvern does necessitate an impossible level of trust between it's crewmembers, and fosters a closeness that is otherwise difficult to imagine."

You nod again- realizing, not for the first time, that you do sort of wonder how Kyou's managed to fit in so well with you. Of course, you know why- but at the same time, you don't really care either.

"Now, I will ask about the older woman accompanying you." He says.

"Wendy?" You ask.

"Yes." He says. "My intelligence apparatus made sure to appraise me of this, however, I wish to know if the decision to involve her was yours or my granddaughters."

[] Mostly mine originally, but Kyou's been the driving force about retaining her latley.

[x] It was a mutual decision. You can't really make unilateral decisions in a Wyvern.

"It was a mutual decision." You say, as the chopper soars over Tokyo- you'd been flying over the outskirts almost since you'd lifted from the base, but now you're out above the skyscrapers of the city proper. "You can't really make unilateral decisions in a Wyvern."

The Emperor blinks. "That hardly sounds like a fighter aircraft at all." He says.

"It's one of the oddities of the jet." You admit. "Three minds, one purpose."

"I'm sure there's something to be said for that." He says. "My Tiger was a single seat aircraft, of course. Unilateral decisions were the only ones to be made." He leans back and smiles as the chopper takes a gentle bank, giving you a view of the imperial palace as the pilot lines it up on a pad that looks more than large enough, even from here, to handle the two light utility helos now coming in on it.

The palace compound is a comparatively large island of green in the middle of the downtown city, separated from the nearby skyscrapers by a wide moat, walls, and a road that encircles the whole compound. There's the original castle, along with three smaller palace compounds- and of course, the support buildings for the staff and guards, along with the imperial gardens and the public areas.

As the chopper crew starts to set it down, the sink rate reminding you of an express elevator- it's a probably a defensive measure, you think, designed to minimize the time the chopper spends hanging in the air as a target. You notice, as the ground seems to rush up to meet you, the small group of people waiting near the pad- Kyou's return, no doubt, has been looked forward to.

The pilot proves his expertise by setting the little helo down lightly- after his quick descent, it's a mark of an excellent driver to pull that off. You're ushered off the aircraft first- and are ambushed a second later.

"Oh my gosh Morgan!" Your aunt Jessica exclaims, not quite running over to enfold you in a hug just beyond the chopper's rotor danger area. "How are you? Oh gosh you've grown! I'm so glad to get to see you again!" She says. You're told she never used to pause to breathe- though you're sure she still speaks a little too fast. "How have you been? We've heard stories about you in Korea already!"

>>
Katsumi- your other aunt- crosses the pad as the emperor is escorted off of the other side of the helicopter. In privacy, you guess, there's less need for ceremony and formality- the man is free to move around his home as he wishes, clearly. She looks over at Kyou and Wendy move to join you from their own helicopter. "Hello Neice." Kyou says, then smiles. "Hello Wendy. Good to see you again."

"Aunt Katsumi. Aunt Jessica." Kyou says, nodding the two witches. "does today find you well?"

"Hi Wendy!" Jess says. "What are you doing here? You fly with Morgan and Kyou?" She leans in. "Are they treating you right?"

"I- uh. um.. I am quite happy?" Wendy responds.

"Good!" Jess says. "So how are you Morgan?"

"Jessica, perhaps they would prefer to talk somewhere other than on a helicopter pad." Katsumi says.

"Oh, right!" Jessica blinks, then smiles. "We were just about to take lunch, if you'd like to join us?"

"I leave the decision to my pilot." Kyou says with a slight smile. "Though I am eager to allow him to display his own talent for food to my family."

It's been a while since you ate aboardship- you had a meal just before the aircrews going into Korea on the first packages of the day, and it's been a fair few hours since then.

You frown. "If Kyou wants me to cook, then I'm going to have to get started soon."

"You can cook? Hopefully better than Frank." Jessica says. "I mean he's ok, but he never really got past things you can grill and burgers aren't super popular in the imperial palace."

"Maman taught me, mostly." You say. You're neglecting the host of other 'teachers' you've had, of course- but Maman got you started.

"Oh man Brigitte? her cooking was SOooooooo good!" Jessica responds. "So what do you plan to make? You're lucky, I've managed to westernize them some, ya know."

"Western food is very 'in' right now." Katsumi offers. "American and European food, specifically. Especially American food, though."

"If I start now, I can do gumbo and rillons." you muse. "Though I'm not sure where I'd find the things I'd need for it."

Kyou smiles. "if you will share with me, I can arrange for anything you may need." She says. "This is, as they say, my home. I know where anything is."

[x] If You'll help, then I can cook something a little more difficult, yeah.

"If you help, I can cook something a little more difficult, yeah." You say with a nod.

Kyou smiles, then turns to her- and your- aunts. "If you will excuse us, aunts." She says with a slight bow, and Katsumi returns the smile.

"Of course." She says. "I look forward to hearing complaints of your invasion of the kitchens."

"I'm going to be quite interested in seeing this as well, I must admit." Wendy says as she follows you and Kyou. "I've seen your father cook a few times, and your mother as well, but no one ever told stories of their food quite the same way I've heard of yours."

"Morgan is very gifted." Kyou responds. "I am told, however, that when he prepares chili, no one is allowed to observe, or even learn the precise ingredients."

You nod. "It's an oath." You explain. The chili isn't really even your recipe, you're just playing custodian of it.

Kyou leads you into the palace- then almost immediately downstairs, where you find the kitchens. You're instantly jealous, too- the kitchen, despite being small enough to not feel huge for one cook, is, on first glance, more than capable of feeding a large staff and the imperial family comfortably easily.

Kyou glances around a bit. "It's been quite some time since I was here." She says. "These kitchens are largely used only for the palace inhabitants, and even then most of the staff prefer to eat at their own residences."
>>
It's a shame, you think, as you take a quick walk around the kitchen. There's two stoves, which of course is far more than you need, set into opposite sides of a center island. There's a large refrigerator in the back wall, next to a walk-in freezer unit, and what looks to be a well stocked wine rack.

Of course, the ingredients at hand, despite what you were just told, aren't what you need- there's flour and vegetable oil, so you can make your roux, and there's green bell pepper, onions and celery, so you've got your trinity, but beyond that, you're kinda in a fix.

"Is there anything you need?" Kyou asks, looking over her shoulder at a girl you assume is part of the household staff.

"A cheap red you don't care much about, at least two pounds of pork belly, andouille, chicken breasts, a cheap beer, chicken stock, and where's the spice cabinet?"

Kyou smiles, turning to the staff girl and rapidly issuing directions to her before walking past you to open up what you'd assumed was a small pantry to reveal the spice cabinet. "Will this work?" She asks

Most of the ingredients aren't labeled, but you know the fresh herbs by sight, though you'll really only need the thyme, and of course the sugar- which looks like it's not used much, and a handful of other things. "Oui." You say, getting a smile out of Kyou as your accent comes through.

"How can I help?" Kyou asks, walking across the room to gather two aprons and handing you one.

[x] How good are you with a paring knife?

"How good are you with a paring knife?" You ask, pulling one out of the rack near the stove and spinning it around in your palm before handing it to her, handle first.

"What do you need me to do?" She responds, taking the knife and setting it down to wash her hands. "Wendy, would you prepare some coffee, please?"

Wendy nods, proving more able to navigate the unfamiliar kitchen than you by opening the cabinet with the bagged coffee beans on the first attempt. Meanwhile, you show Kyou what you're after, dicing up the bell pepper, celery, and onion quickly. She moves slower at it than you do, but proves more than able to handle the task- and working right next to her isn't that bad, you think. You could get used to it.

With the two of you working, you're done quickly, finding yourself waiting a few minutes- you can't start a fast roux without everything to hand, and none of the other ingredients are here to start anything. Wendy gets the coffee on quickly, displaying those domestic servant skills she's developed for herself- and that Kyou looks more than happy to use.

You're about to suggest that the two witches go change when the servant comes back, with another of the house staff, you assume, and three bags of groceries. They speak to Kyou, quietly, and then take places along the wall, watching intently, but not moving. "They moved as quickly as possible." She says, opening the bag- the wine they've chosen clearly isn't as cheap as you were thinking- probably in the sixty dollar range- but it's a red, so it'll do. The pork belly is cut clumsily to your eye- not poorly, but certainly not by a butcher used to it. Still, he gave you a fattier cut, which is exactly what you want in this case. The sausage is labled as 'genuine creole andouille' which you're not as sure about, but it's labled as being made in LaPlace, so you'll accept it. Fortunately, everything else looks about how you expect it to- packaged a bit differently, but otherwise the same- though you've never tried to make a gumbo with a rice beer, and they brought you Ashai dry.

"So this is a roux?" Kyou asks as you pull down a large pot and pour some oil in it, motioning for kyou to bring the flour over. "Is this necessary?"

"Oui." You respond, heating the oil quickly and pouring the flour in. "De rouc, it be de base of de whole pot. Ya get dis wrong, everyting else be wrong, oui."

"I see." She says, looking over the rim oof the pot at the rapidly darkening roux. "Is it difficult? It doesn't seem to be."

You nod, watching the roux brown quickly. "Oui, Roux be tricky sometimes." You say, stirring it enough to keep it moving. "Once ya get dis, de gumbo be easy, dis be de only hard part." Kyou watches intently as you rapidly get the gumbo into the pot and start browning the chicken.

Of course, her attention is really piqued when she sees you unwrap the pork belly- they got you three pounds, which is more than enough for this. You beckon her over. "Bring de knife." You say. "I be showin ya how ta cut up de belly for rillons."

"I imagine these are not the french recipe?" Wendy asks with a smile.

You shake your head. "Dese be like the sweeter version o cracklins." you say, frowning. "Like wine caramel pork belly, oui."

"Wine caramel pork belly?" Kyou asks.

You nod. "Oui. You ready?"

She nods, watching as you pull the slab towards you and cut it into strips quickly- slightly thicker than thick cut bacon, and then you cut a slice up into cubes. "About dis size. Ya don wan ta have ta bite one in half, non." You say, and Kyou nods, frowning as she concentrates, carefully cutting peices almost exactly the same size. You laugh after a second, and she looks up at you. "It don have ta be precise." You explain, waving Wendy over to give you a hand as well. She proves to be a bit more of a skilled hand at it, and you leave the two to cut the rest of the pork belly up, keeping an eye on them as they do so, and when they finish you have them drop the cut up pork into a baking dish and salt it, though both move over to join you as you make the wine caramel- You're not sure about the wine itself, but it is a full-bodied red. You'd have normally used something far less expensive, but you imagine this is the 'cheapest' wine they could imagine serving.

Wendy eventually goes to change as you add the meat to the gumbo, but Kyou seems almost enthralled by the food, hovering near the stovetop and the oven where the rillons are cooking. "How is it you learned to make all of this?" She asks. "Surely your mother didn't teach all of this as well."

You shake your head. "I be learning much of dis on my own." You say, smiling. "I watch a lot of cooking videos, oui."

"Such as the one you were watching when we first met?" She asks. You nod again.

"Oui."

She shoots a glance at the servants- and they step out of the room. "I had suspected you were hiding a talent." She says, after a moment. "That tea you made for Merlin- that was not normal. This food cannot be either."

You shake your head. "De food jus be home cooking." you respond, a little taken aback. You knew she suspected something, of course- you suspect things yourself, maman was very specific and unusually picky in the specific methods you had to use to prepare the various small things she taught you.

Kyou frowns. "Nothing that smells this good can be normal." She responds. "Truly, I must have done something to get the gods to smile upon me."

You blink feeling a little relieved. Truth be told, It's not something you enjoy looking too closely at yourself, honestly- and while you owe it to Kyou to be honest, you don't really know where or how to begin- or how even to describe it.

Instead, you have to watch the food like a hawk, noting that, you figure, just about every single witch in the palace makes at least one trip to the kitchens as you tend the food- and Kyou never leaves, nor does Wendy after she's changed clothes. Kyou's mother, especially, makes more than one trip down- and shoots more than one meaningful look at her daughter.

Dinner, you think, should be interesting.

I really like the "Cooking with the Morgan" skits, probably more than I should have.

And that's going to be it for the week! I think we did alright- pacing was a bit slower than I'd have liked, were you guys happy with it? The thread ended up shorter than usual, about 14 pages in my word processor, but we got to where I'd hoped to. Lost some detail time thanks to doggo tonight, which isn't great, though. She's still a good doggo, just a bit frustratingly murder happy!

Anyway gents, as usual, I'll be around some to field questions or comments, but otherwise, till next week, cheers!

Aight then. So how did the Southeast Asian Intervention go in the SWQ timeline?
>>
>>4084695
All that delicious food and drink, and only a morning run to keep us from bulking up ? Or does Morgan need to increase nightly gymnastics ?
>>
>>4085290
>only a morning run
I'm fairly sure the bloody, magically-charged, hyper-intense wolfsex Kyou does to him counts for a substantial quantity of calorie-burning.

It's a blanket term used to cover a more or less constant military action in southeast Asia (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and the easternmost parts of Thailand) from the late 1950s on into the early 70s. It started in the 50s with the US (mostly- there were also IJA and Australian contingents present) supporting the government of Vietnam against martian holdouts, which then became a more general 'security action' involving Cambodia and Laos- an expansion of the war, ostensibly to continue dealing with the last pockets of holdouts that also involved a number of attacks on the Pathet Lao and Khmer Rouge in the region as well. By the mid 60s, the US was losing support at home for the war, though- and by the end of the 60s, it was gone, with the population of the US believing both that the job was done and it was well past time to bring the troops home, and unable to understand why American troops were dying in a country that should have been able to handle the job itself- especially a communist one (Or communist leaning, at any rate). Similarly, the IJA wasn't willing to commit a lot of troops to helping a communist nation with what it viewed as 'internal issues' without significant American pressure to do so (Especially considering the rather dim view an imperial nation's forces took of a communist nation and vice versa), and pulled out as the American drawdowns commenced. By the early 70s, the US had mostly pulled out, with just a few 'advisers' remaining in country, along with some airforce and marine units at the larger bases- and they were gone by the end of '73. By '74, the US was out of the region entirely, with the whole thing having been a considerable drain on the nation's military morale and having cost the government a lot of goodwill from the people of the nation.

Welp, that's actually not too bad as far as making me need to rewrite my basic idea (again). Of course, I won't even think about posting anything just yet, we're way too early in SW2016 for that and I still have books to read, movies to watch, and a playlist to finish.
>>
>>4086874
Have you figured out yet what is blocking your formatting ? I like walls but not this much.
>>
>>4088710
*Walls in general.

Just to confirm, Morgan and Kyou are actively fucking by now, right?
>>
>>4090393
I mean...yeah I thought that was PRETTY FUCKING OBVIOUS. What do you want, "And then they fucked?"
Ultra-smut?
High impact sexual violence?
>>
>>4090772
Maybe some ballbusting.
>>
>>4090879
Yeah, Ghost, is Kyou dom or sub?
>>
>>4090957
With the title of "Wolf Princess", one would assume she prefers being on top. However, I am open to the possibility her liking to switching roles every now and then for something new and exciting.
>>
>>4091052
Don't think Japanese citizens know about her "private" preferences.
>>
>>4091052
Collar, leash, doggy style

Pull fluffy tail.

I mean, if you really wanna go there...midnight walks.

noice

Not much room for that on a carrier though

I couldn't resist.

>Midnight walkies

Awwww yeeeeah.

Even better, she's already got the tail and ears. No need for accessories.
>>
>>4092122
That makes me think, actually - since there's more than enough canine witches around, there's probably one or two "Dog-waking parks" around the place.

If you know what I mean.
>>
>>4091911
Is she really that lewd enough to be an exhibitionist though?

>>4092122
Could always just wear a large coat.
>>
>>4092250
Honestly we have no idea about Kyou's sexual preferences beyond that She fucks hard enough to leave bloody nailmarks down Morgan's back.

Beyond that it's all mostly just horny-on-main speculation.
>>
>>4092278
Pretty sure she's not an exhibitionist. Dominant in bed? Almost certainly. Riding us like a bronco at the rodeo? Again, almost a certainty. But someone who gets off on being seen and embarrassment? Yeah, almost certainly not.
>>
>>4092330
Yeah. The original premise of "Dog collar and leash in private" is much more sensical than exhibitionism.

That said, that's not gonna stop these boners.
>>
>>4092338
See I don't even see that frankly. That doesn't strike me as her thing. Like I just don't see her as being into any of the BDSM stuff at all. Like, when I say "dominant in bed", I mean in an animalistic sense, not a fetish sense. Like she shoves Morgan on to the bed and has her way with him, not "Oooh you've been a NAUGHTY boy." Snu snu, not whips, chains and leashes.
>>
>>4092420
It's less BDSM and more pet play; the entire premise was a reversal of her usual dominant/animalistic persona to something submissive to Morgan and playing on her familiar's traits.

That said;
>chains and leashes
>incompatible with animalistic snu snu

boy you haven't experienced what a good Dom is capable of, have you?
>>
>>4092479
Pet play is degenerate, go back to /d/ please.

>>4092507
/d/enied.

You cannot escape the lewdness.

Just be thankful it isn't Mindlink Lewds then it'd be more surreal than anything else.

Why the fuck does anon always go straight from
>HURR DURR DID DEY FUK?
to
>BUT WHAT ARE THEY? SUB OR DOMMMMMMMM?
in 3 seconds flat, and devolve the rest of the thread into fetish spam

Because this particular thread is nearly dead off the board, having some light shitposting about lewds hurts nobody, and anon is permanently fucking horny *anyway* so best to do it here instead of derailing an active thread.
>>
>>4092563
Hey, I may be an orange board /d/generate but all I asked is if Kyou tops or bottoms.
>>
>>4092861
Uh huh. Yeah.
