You study the legal pad carefully, and then cautiously peer over the top at Admiral Thomas. Vice-Admiral Robert L. Thomas, commander of the US 7th fleet, a three-star who commands at least 80 ships, 40,000 men and a few thousand marines as well. You haven't really thought about it much, but with all the kanmasu - musu? masu? Whatever; all the shipgirls running around this place, Goto's commanding a force at least a third the size of the entire JMSDF itself; at least in combat assets. Whatever his actual rank is, his actual pull amongst his own military is probably greater than the rank on his shoulder might suggest.

And here you stand, the One-Star-Wonder.

“Pardon, sir, but... you two want my advice on this?”

They blink.

“... me.”

“Settle,” Thomas says after a moment. “What do you think you're here to do?”

“Command a division,” you answer promptly. “And look after the United States Navy's returned shipgirls - and boy. And we happen to have about a division's worth of ships. Maybe two, if you squint.”

“Sure, that's what the CNO stamped on your orders,” Thomas says. “But you're also the only commanding officer who's survived close combat with multiple abyssal forces.”

>> No.40960004

“What about t-”

“Spare me the modest hero bullshit, Settle,” Thomas says curtly. “I've read the reports. I've read reports you're not authorized to read. I say you're the USN officer with the most intimate experience and understanding of the abyssal threat, so I want your input on our force compositions.” He leans against the table and crosses his arms. “Besides, I've spent my time trying to put 7th fleet back together. I hear you've spent your time familiarizing with the kanmusu.”

“That's a word for it,” you mutter dourly, but bow to the wisdom of the man with the two-star lead. Scowling at the legal pad, you finally set it aside.

“I'd suggest CarDiv 1. I've been with Hornet since she first returned, and if nothing else, she's frikkin *fast* about launching CAP. The only thing worse than a slow shot is a slow shot that misses, as far as she's concerned. As for the surface complement... I suggest we deploy the sub-girls - sub-people? Whatever.”

“Are you suuuure?” Goto asks. “This is a perfect chance to close for night surface action after the day battle.”

“Well, here's my concern,” you say, picking up a laser pointer off the table and shining it on the map. “This is going down just north of the Bonin islands, right?” You shine your light around. “So here's Yokota airbase, a few miles north of here... and here's Kaneda AFB on Okinawa... and here's Anderson, on Guam. Kaneda is almost 800nm distant, Guam is pushing 1,000, and Yokota is about 450. Unfortunately Yokota is mostly JSDF aircraft right now since we're splitting longer-ranged stuff between Guam, Singapore and Kaneda to try and cover the island chains and the South China Sea. So Super Hornets from Kaneda or Anderson are going to *have* to tank to reach. F-2s from Yokota can just about reach the AO for a strike mission, but they'll have to tank as well if they want to loiter.” You set the laser pointer down. “And we all know how excited the Air Force is about putting their KC-135s up against abyssals.”

Both men frown. The abyssals ability to show up damn near anywhere cost the Air Force two tankers early in the war, which shook everyone's confidence badly - entire doctrines needed to be re-written, and the enemy could always cheat the rules of time and space in some new and awful way. “So, what's your point, Settle?”

“My point is, the tankers will need escort, which reduces the number of fighters we can keep on CAP, so on and so forth - basically, if we screw up and our decks are put out of commission, unable to launch or recover or god forbid, dead in the water -” you shake your head. “It'd be Mikuma all over again; a mad melee to get the hell away from their airpower range. And we just can't throw up enough air cover from land right now, not spread so thin with so many planes in maint cycles. So I figure, we give them as few targets as possible.”

They absorb this silently and thoughtfully.

“As for ASW, I want the SSNs,” you say flat-out. “We still don't know exactly how these bastards move around, so maybe they'll be kept at bay and underwater poking along at four knots due to constant air patrols... and maybe they won't. Nautilus pursued the Japanese carrier fleet for the whole damn day while they were conducting active air operations and was never spotted. And these crews have been training recently for ASW against Chinese diesel boats, yeah?”

Thomas nods.

“Right. Keep them close, let Harder and the Japanese subs do what they do best. The SSNs can keep up with our surface forces, too.”

Thomas smiles. “I'll accept Settle's decisions, then - Goto and I have been talking each other into and out of these positions all morning.”

“ My experience says differently,” Goto says, “but that doesn't mean spit, since our subs haven't had much chance to operate, so I've got not experience to go on, there. I trust your judgment on Hornet, I'm no career fast-attack skipper and-” he checks his watch. “We're simply running out of time. It'll take us all day to get the girls ready and on the water if we start right now.”

“I suppose...” Thomas begins.

“You could consider...” Goto chimes in.

After you're done groaning, you all clear off the tables and get to work. Shoukaku stays close by your side, clearing off tables, fetching extra office supplies, placing calls and even running out for food, returning with some take-out curry. Goto and Thomas both watch you carefully from the corners of their eyes when you open yours, so you gird yourself before biting. As expected, it's *incredibly* hot. Unfortunately for your two “allies,” you earned the nicknames “ironbelly” from the crew (and “fucking lunatic” from the ship's doctor) for eating monkey brains on your first cruise to Indochina, so mere agony on the tongue is old hat. After Goto raises his eyebrow a milliliter in silent salute, he pops the plastic lid off his own meal and digs in-

“aaaahhhhoooooooot,” he gasps, stealing Thomas's warm Pepsi and downing it in one go. “Shoukaku, what the hell is that?”

“Hmm?” she says, steadying herself with a grip on your shoulder as she leans over to peer at Goto's dish. “Oh, dear. I must've ordered the same one for all three.”

Goto gives her a lidded-eyed look that whispers “traitor.” Shoukaku lightly trails her fingertips along the back of your neck, sending little electric shivers down your spine, and she turns her profile to you long enough to wink as she walks away to her next assignment.

As you polish off your curry, Yamato bursts into the room with an armful of folders. “I've got them, teikt- oh!” She stops dead in her tracks when she sees you.

“... who is this?” you ask innocently.

Goto glares dirks and daggers at you.

Hate walks into the room behind Yamato, properly dressed and looking absolutely wired. Goto's eyes widen in horror.

“... who is this!?” Yamato says, turning to Hate with badly-feigned suprise.

“Yamato,” Goto says, rubbing his face. “Come here. Come *heah.*”

You lean back and manage to sail your empty takeout container into the trashcan from halfway across the room. As you're turning to ask Hate to stand in a corner where you can keep a close eye on him, there's a disturbance outside. Hate produces an M9 from his waistband and racks it by shoving the rear sight against a table edge, refusing to relinquish his massive 64 ounce travel mug of coffee.

The door shudders beneath a blow, then pops open as the latch fails, a bruised MP scrabbling across the floor away from the portal. Standing in the doorway is Harder. His eyes are wide and wild, his small hands curled into hard-looking fists. He's breathing raggedly, hunched over, somewhere between a prizefighter and a feral wolf. Thomas backs against the wall, prudently scared of the boy wielding the power of a five-inch gun... at the very least. Goto and Hate just regard him with the emotion you're fast becoming used to - mild interest, in case the same old shit evolves into something novel.

Harder makes a beeline for you, flopping to his knees and grabbing your uniform jacket, beeseeching you.

“SKIPPER.”

“Harder.”

“HELP!”

“... what's wrong, sailor?”

“NAKA. SHE. A THING. EVIL. WITCH. EVIL. EVIL! AMBUSH!” He shakes you desperately; you wave off Hate; your head is rocking on your neck but it's in no danger of whiplash. “A DATE! NO ESCAPE! A FUCKING DATE, SKIPPER!”

“So...?”

“I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GIRL, SKIPPER! TEACH ME HOW TO GIRL!”

And that's when that no good lousy dirty rotten son-of-a-bitch jarhead shitkicker in the back of the room begins to laugh like a lunatic.

The brunch buffet in the O-Club wasn't half bad, Parker decided- for an officer's mess, at any rate. It wasn't as if he disliked an early breakfast, but after his interview with Akagi, he thought it prudent to plan his meals around carrier practice. The Line was before him on a whole new level: one involving girls that could turn into warships and possible scandalous intent. But as he tucked into his bastardized meal of fried eggs, bacon, and fries, he couldn't help but overhear four destroyer-girls at their own table.

“But it's true! Drinking milk really will make you a Lady!”

“Nu-uh! That's just settlebutt someone made up!”

Parker choked with laughter at 'settlebutt'. He had heard of these girls: the infamously cute DesDiv 6, the 'daughterus' of the fleet that don't want no trabble. They turned in his direction at the sound of his distress.

“Hey, mister! Are you okay?”

“It looks like he's choking. We should help!”

The four girls had swarmed Parker's table before he could even gesture that he was fine, gently patting him on the back and fearing the worst. Parker signaled for them to stop as soon as he swallowed the errant piece of food. “I'm fine, girls. Just some bacon aiming for the wrong hole.”

The four girls gathered around him and stared.

“We haven't seen you around before.”

“Most of the other officers stop coming here after eight in the morning.”

“W-who are you, mister?”

Parker looked at each of them in turn, a smile on his face. “I'm Chief Parker, the new intelligence officer under Goto and Settle. Thanks for the assist.”

“I'm Akatsuki! I'm gonna be a lady!”

“I-I'm Inazuma. Pleased to meet you.”

“Hibiki... tovarisch.”

“And I’m Ikazuchi!”

Parker saluted them, each one returning it. “The infamous DesDiv Six; it's a pleasure to meet you all. And for the record, milk alone won't make you a lady.”

“See?! I told you! It's settlebutt!”

Akatsuki fumed as one of the other girls spoke up.

“Hey, Chief! You're from America; do you know any good cowboy stories?”

All four girls quieted at this, inquisitive looks on their faces. Parker looked away, calculating. It had been such a long time since he had fresh meat for the grinder...

“Well, I don't know any about cowboys, sadly. But I do have a few spooky sea stories... Would you like to hear one?”

He rose, grinning, to a chorus of affirmatives and pleases. He looked back at the girls as he went to deposit his half-eaten meal for cleaning. “You girls will have to come back to my office if you want to hear one, then. Last thing I'd want to do is scare the pants off some greenhorn ensign.”

The five of them headed for the door, the girls taking up position around him almost like an escorting flotilla. Right as Parker reached for the knob, however, a small figure burst through and ran into him. “Buh.”

“Oh! It's Willie-chan!”

“Hey Willie-chan, wanna hear stories with us?”

Parker just stared at the girl, the infamous William D. Porter, as the girls of DesDiv 6 surrounded her. Willie looked up at him, a terrified look on her face. She squeaked out a small “s-sorry” at him.

“Well, Miss Porter? Would you like to hear some old sea stories?” asked Parker.

“W-Willie-chan, you're our new best friend! You should tag along!”

“Yes, please join us, tovarisch.”

Willie, eternally on the edge of tears, but now smiling slightly, sniffled at him. “S-sure...”

With Willie sucked into their wake, now five destroyers followed Parker back to the HQ building housing his office. At he opened the door to his office, he gestured for the girls to enter. They all came to an immediate halt on the other side. Parker looked over them to see what the holdup was. There, sitting in his chair with a smug look on it's face, was a corgi.

He had heard of them: much like the shipgirls themselves, the massive fleet of US PT boats had started to come back to serve once more. This time, though, as derpy little dogs.

“What,” started Parker, “The f—,” there were girls present, “—fig are you doing in my chair.”

Willie chimed up. “PT-73, w-what are you doing out of your kennel? You know Hate will be mad at you!”

Parker walked around the girls and approached the errant PT-Corgi. He stooped down and stared the dog in the face, not once breaking eye contact with it.

“PT-73.” The corgi didn't flinch away as Parker raised his hand towards it. He brought his hand to its head and slowly lowered it. A smile appeared on both their faces as he began petting it.

“I'm gonna call you McHale,” he said to it with mirth in his voice.

The four girls of DesDiv 6 instantly crowded around the dog, taking Parker's place and petting it.

He rose and chuckled at the newly rechristened PT boat. “I suppose you also want to hear a story, then.” He got a 'wuff' of an affirmative in response.

Parker walked back around his desk and faced his now larger audience. “Where do I begin? It was back in... late '06 or '07. We were on our way down to Australia for a joint exercise with their navy. After a week or two of quiet steaming, our skipper decided that the gunnery teams should get some practice in. As an Amphib ship, we were lightly armed: six M2 .50 cals and two 25mm guns; all crew-served. I was the lead shooter for one of the 25's, I loved shooting that thing. Well, we had set everything up for a fun-filled day of shooting the water when the weather started to change. The reports had called for clear skies, but an old salt like me knew the warning signs of an approaching squall.”

Parker paused at this, looking for any reaction from the girls. They were all taken in, even the corgi.

He continued. “We were already all manned up; myself slung in the 25—” Parker demonstrated a modified boxer's stance, his arms held out like a grappler, “—when the squall hit us. The skipper put out the call for everyone to batten down the hatches, but we were all stuck; we were tied in and didn't want to get blown over the side. We had to ride it out.”

His audience, even the corgi, were all leaning closer, mesmerized by his words. “I noticed it as the storm worsened: an eerie greenish glow from between the rainfall. I called it up to the bridge on my mount's sound-powered phone, asking for confirmation of the contact. They told me there was nothing else out there with us. I could see the glow moving closer; I told them we were not alone.”

They were all on the edge of their seats, now. Time for the first crescendo. “That's when I saw it clearly. An old ship-of-the-line sailing straight at us.” Gasps from DesDiv 6, and a slight whimper from Willie. “I can still see it now: that hellish green glow, the sea life draped along its hull, the torn and tattered sails with a full wind up against them...”

“What did you do then?!” gasped Ikazuchi.

Parker looked her straight in the eyes. “I called it out to the bridge.” He looked at all of his assembled audience again. “They still didn't have it on radar. By the time the bridge crew could get its act together, that ghost ship had pulled along side us and matched our speed. We weren't going very fast because of the storm; they still managed to pace us. I could see its old cannons jutting out from the sides; they were obviously setting up for a broadside. Then, CRASH!” He slapped his hands together as fast and as loud as he could, making the girls jump.

“The skipper had had enough at that point; he gave us the all-clear to engage. As I began to hear our ma-deuces start to light off, I aimed down my 25... flipped off the safety... and started to fire twenty-five millimeters of pure hate at that ghost. I kept it to controlled three-round bursts. THUD THUD THUD as it fired. I traced its fire up and down the cannon holes and the topside; I was actually able to start making out faint figures on the decks and rigging. They started to swing in closer, preparing for another broadside. That's when I saw him and knew: Davey Jones Himself, head wreathed in the flames of hell, standing at the wheel to that most legendary of ghost ships: we were fighting the Flying Dutchman.”

Quiet gasps came from the girls; a faint growl emanated from the corgi. They all knew about the Dutchman, cursed by God Almighty to sail the seas for eternity. Parker leaned back and continued, “I could see ol' Davey calling out orders; they were getting ready to fire. I aimed right for his mean old face. Right as I was about to fire, though, I got a good look right at his face: he was staring right back at me. He started to point at me; getting ready to call me out for the Locker. I wouldn't let him, though, so I fired. I fired right into him.”

Dead silence from his audience. “That was it. I fired into him continuously. I meant to bleed my ammo belts dry, and make the barrel glow red. I wouldn't give mean ol' Davey Jones a chance to call me or anyone else out that day. Eventually, though, my belts ran dry and the haze of battle left me. I looked out to see clear skies. The storm had vanished as quickly as it had appeared.”

Willie finally piped up. “W-what happened to the Dutchman?”

The four girls of DesDiv 6 bounced up as he finished.

“That was so cool!”

“Y-you were so brave!”

Parker just smiled at all of them. “Thanks girls. That's all for today, though.” A chorus of “Awwws” followed his proclamation.

“Well, I suppose if you girls are good, I'll tell you more later. I'll have to get status reports on your behavior from the admirals, though.”

DesDiv 6 popped to attention. “W-we don't want no trabble, Chief!” “We won't let you down, Chief!”

As Parker watched the four girls file out, a dark thought clouded his mind. He thought back to that day. Sure, sea stories like his were bound to carry a small degree of bullshit, but he actually HAD engaged the Flying Dutchman that day. With the Abyssal problem as his newest concern, he couldn't help but think that, maybe—MAYBE—the myths and legends surrounding the Dutchman had more truth to them. Maybe the Dutchman itself was one of them. Maybe they had been around a lot longer than just “Day Zero”.

A quiet sniffle broke his train of thought. Willie was still in the room. He looked over to her.

“Y-you were so brave back then...” Parker nodded for her to continue, “I-I'm just a screw up who can't even s-shoot straight...”

Parker stooped down to her level and gently patted her on the head. “Do you want to know a secret, Willie?” She nodded. “I was scared the whole time. Scared for my ship, scared for my shipmates, and especially scared for myself.” He pointed over to his boxing photo. “I was the Seventh Fleet boxing champion; I was also scared every time I entered the ring. But I couldn't let my fears override my desire to put on my best. I HAD to be strong; if not for myself, than for my friends and loved ones.”

Willie stared up at him, eyes now only misty with wonder. “Willie, do you want me to teach you how to be brave?” She nodded. “Then let me teach you how to fight.”

She got a scared look on her face at that. “Y-you mean like boxing?” Parker nodded.

“It'll build courage and discipline, and help you stick up not only for yourself, but for your friends.”

“I-I don't know... It sounds dangerous...”

Parker knew Willie needed this. She sounded like she was about to make a break for it, though. So he pulled out one last trump card.

“Willie, let me talk to your prizefighter.”

One of the photos down in Parker's Secret Squirrel Nest was of a kanmusu fighter plane. It had looked, for all intents, like a Second World War-era plane; save for one detail: it's pilot. A lot of questions had been raised by this photo; a lot of questions and very few answers that would never see the light of day. Parker had heard of these 'faeries' or 'Little People' that seemed to appear and disappear around the ship-girls; one theory said that they represented the very sailors that had once gone to war.

Willie froze up at Parker's order. “Y-you know about them?”

Parker simply gazed at her, no intensity in his eyes. “Willie, please let me talk to your prizefighter,” he asked again.

“C-close your eyes, please...”

Parker closed them.

He started to sweat when he heard the tiny grunts of someone or someTHING opening a hatch. He shut his eyes tighter. He closed them even tighter when he heard the rusty squeal of said hatch swing open. He could feel the blood rushing to his head when he heard the hatch close. The faeries were real. Holy shit the faeries were real. They WEREREALTHEY'REREALHOLYSHITISTHEREATINYMEOUTTHEREOHGODWHATPOKEDMEINTHEGALLEY—

His slow descent into madness was abruptly halted when he heard a high-pitched yet gruff cough for attention. He forced his eyes open to behold...

It stood roughly six inches tall. It wore the old-style of navy dungarees, with the sleeves crudely cut off. On its horribly oversized head sat a stained Dixie cup hat, tipped at a jaunty angle. Its bare, muscular arms were covered in various tattoos: Parker could just make out an anchor, mooring line, and even a tiny hula-faerie. At one of its wrists dangled a pair of tiny little handcuffs. Boxing tape covered its tiny hands. A perpetual scowl was on its face, a ragged little cigarette held in its mouth.

Parker could feel his vision fading and his brain beginning to melt at the sight of the faerie. It had made eye contact. He slammed his eyes shut and forced them open again. The prizefighter merely “hnf”'d at him.

That's right; he had a task. He had to ask this faerie—

Parker had just found a whole new Line; but this time one side led down a rabbit hole, the other to a straightjacket.

“I take it you're the William D Porter's resident prizefighter?”

A snort in response.

“Don't give me that shit, sailor; I'm your new Chief. I take it you're from engineering?”

The Faerie nodded.

>> No.40960724

>>40960705

Parker pointed to his boxing photo, the pintsize prizefighter following his hand. “That was me less than a decade ago. Now, Willie here wants to learn how to fight and be strong. I'm going to need your help with that.” This got the wee fighter's attention. “Starting tomorrow, I need you to make sure Willie is up at zero-six-hundred and at the Rec Center. I'm going to teach her how to fight. Can you do that for me? Make sure she's there and ready to train?”

It signaled its affirmation of Parker's orders with a tiny-yet-gruff “hnf”. The faerie stood to attention and saluted.

“Very good, sailor. Carry on.” Parker's eyes slammed shut as the faerie turned away. He heard the sound of a tiny hatch open and slam shut before he opened them again. There were just some things no man was ever meant to see. He stood up and opened his eyes. Willie looked up at him with a defeated glimmer in her eyes.

“Be there at zero-six, Willie. I'll make a champion out of you yet.”

Willie slumped at this, tears once more forming in her eyes. “Y-yes, Chief.” She made for the door.

As she left, Parker went back to his chair and slumped down into it. Memories of that fateful day against the Dutchman made him begin to question the nature of the Abyssals. The sight of Willie's very own prizefighter made him question his own sanity. The nearly-forgotten corgi jumped up into his lap and Parker began petting automatically.

“Holy shit, I've really stepped in it this time, McHale.”

It could be a mix of "chan behavior/culture", as well as the people deciding that no matter what it might mean on 4chan "fag" isn't going to be an acceptable word.

I don't understand why some cultural things -- such as green-texting or over-use of reaction images -- are things that got put on the "do not do" list... but then I was also surprised to find that using smilies and emoticons on 4chan will get people yelling at you.

So... I guess some things are just prohibited... just because. On SB it's using the word fag or posts that only contain a picture (probably related to spam rules); on 4chan it's stuff like not using smilies.

Nobody knows for sure~ But several extant Japanese shipgirls survived the war only to be scrapped after their service lives were over, so probably not.

>If a ship sank while carrying aircraft that were not part of it's assigned squadrons...

Let me put it this way. Hornet can launch B-25s, if she really wants.

>If a ship girl operated aircraft that were modified land-based aircraft

See above!

>Are corgi's confined to coming back as PT boats or can some of them comeback as other equivalent boats (motor torpedo boats for instance?)

Reports are a bit sketchy due to traditional German embarrassment about their wartime misdeeds, but it's pretty much confirmed that the Germans have at least two dozen weiner dogs running circles around a base somewhere. Draw your own conclusions.

>Can a ship fitted with a well deck launch ship-girls?

Ship"girl" cutoff is Destroyer Escort sized. Anything smaller comes back as a Corgi or other ruff tuff little animal. So girls, no... but PT boats? Yes.

> If a ship that was treated badly when floating comes back as a ship-girl, are they capable of defecting to other countries?

>If an anon was to do a side-story, how much freedom would he have for adding in new things (such-as a single new modern ship)

Pretty wide leeway; if someone wants to do the story of DDG Whateverthefuck in X Sector during The Abyssal War - go for it! I can't promise storyline integration, main quest cameos and such - but as far as I'm concerned, people can consider sidestory stuff canon unless it clashes with something I've strongly established in my own writing, or the writing of my "primary" writefags who've been here since the beginning and give me a great deal of help and aid in coming up with ideas for the quest.

Their idea of "offensive" is literally a "I'll know it when I see it" thing. What counts as "offensive" is never explicitly identified and changes depending on what mod is on at the time. Even if they had a list they'd not abide by it, as evidenced by all the posters in NSD breaking the "no genocide" rule on a daily basis and only getting called on it if the mods don't like them or their politics.

Not that I know of. Subs launch torpedoes with compressed air, the act of blowing them out of the tube and through the water is what triggers them to arm. They also have minimum distance fusing that prevents them from detonating too close, doesn't help with a circular run though.

Destroyer torpedoes have bigger issues because they launch them "dry". If you trigger a torpedo but it doesn't actually leave the launcher it will just burn all it's fuel spinning and spinning until it overheats and explodes from lack of cooling water.

S-13 was a Soviet Navy submarine operating in the Baltic.

The Gustloff alone may went down with over 9000 people aboard - records are spotty - which would make it the single greatest single loss of life at sea in history.

A bigger, shinier medal than the one he got. Essentially he got the DSC instead of the Medal of Honor and was so pissed that he submerged his boat and went to sea rather than stay in dock and receive the award he'd been given, and when sent back out into the combat zone parked S-13 somewhere quiet and sat out the entire assignment without attacking anything.

Sorry, missed that one! Abyssals have never been observed walking around on land or anything, but they aren't shy about going anywhere their draft can take them - and shelling the shit out of anything their guns can reach. The Mississippi is being patrolled regularly for fear of ironclads or flat-bottomed gunboats returning from the Civil War to wreak havoc. The death toll is over a few thousand civilians killed in shore bombardments and attacks in littoral areas since the war began 16 months ago.

And nothing anyone's seen indicates that the abyssals can't go on land - just that they haven't been seen doing it yet.

Not really. A Destroyer Escort is basically a corvette - it's even smaller than a destroyer, and a WWII era destroyer weighed in at 900-1500 tons. The Fletcher class destroyers were TINY, comparatively - see this picture with crew on deck for comparison. DEs were even smaller. And destroyers were typically the smallest ships in the blue-water navy. Smaller than a DE but bigger than a PT boat is a narrow range; gunboats and coastal ASW boats, basically.

They seem to adopt the form of whatever they're fighting, the same way shipgirl shells seem to expand to full-sized dimensions when fired at a ship-sized target. Re-read the first battle in the quest; you'll note how the abyssal ships change to "shipgirl" form when they close in with the kanmusu, and even when they're shipgirls they retain the radar returns and even visual outline (in rain or mist) of their full-sized hull.

Fucking #rekt at pearl, 9 torps in fewer minutes.

Literally caught with her skirt down, what with her torpedo bulges open for inspection and all.

Rolls over, crew banging on the hull form the inside, some get cut out, other don't. Sentries go insane from hearing the tapping.

So she has trauma for sure.

Later re floated (zombie juju magic for such a damaged ship, she effectively had her entire side blown off) and shipped out to be scrapped.

Suddenly a MYSTERIOUS storm appears out of fucking nowhere and she vanishes beneath the waves, almost dragging her tugs down with her. Her hull was never found.

Just an idea but I think Settle and Goto should get a suggestion, maybe from Parker, to capture an Abyssal. No better possible source of information about them. As to how to do it - maybe have all four Kongous dog pile on one and haul her back with their bare hands.

Also, not waifuing here but listen, we need to build a relationship with one of hte girls. Kind of like the Abyssal idea, we need information about them. And there are no better sources. I would say Shoukaku, simply because she seems to be the one most interested in us right now (though Naka's internal monologue suggests she might be too), you know establish trust.

As for "resupplying" the girls, from watching the anime (which was kind of shit) don't they just eat regular human food and somehow transform that into their ammunition, fuel, replacement planes, spare deck timber, and so on?

God, fine. The Chan-ing thing is a rule and culture thing, no more no less. I don't pretend to understand why that rule is there, but then I also didn't understand the hate for smilies (even given the post that tried to explain it).

The NSFW stuff is because some of the content that gets posted to these threads is NSFW. That doesn't mean every goddam swimsuit picture ffs, but there IS the occasional softcore pic here and there.
There's not as many rules or control over what gets posted on here, which means there's no **assurance** that it *won't* happen. Since the SB mods can't have any assurance or control over what might show up in an individual /tg/ thread, it's easier to just say to link to the archive like thus: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kant-O-Celle%20Quest

So, Death By Chains got told to change the name and not use some of the questionable (by SB standards I guess) pics. That's about it, from what I can understand.

Yes. This. Be it true or not, the other thing the old super-patriot fudds will solemnly tell you, as they explain why .45 ACP is a man-killing nuke with more STHOPPAN POWAH than .50 American Eagle is that it was invented specifically because of the Filipino-American war, where .38 Special proved ineffective in stopping ripshit-insane Filipino resistance fighters that could soak up six rounds without going down for the count.

I was there when that rule was added. The argument as I recall was that two or three people were acting like Spacebattles was an extension of /tg/ or /v/ or even /b/, making random, meme-filled and often off-topic posts or threads, which desperately needed to be stopped.

Fair enough, though I think there was only one guy who was actually causing a problem. Don't act like a typical /b/tard. Easy.

Then it became don't discuss X meme, that's channing. Then it was don't use greentext, that's channing. Then it was don't use reaction images, that's channing. Now it's basically a stick the mods brandish at people they don't like, since they can creatively re-interpret pretty much anything to be considered "channing".

The ship that's most likely to be Abyssal would be Oklahoma because she was actively ignored over most of World War 2 and then promptly forgotten afterwards.

People need to stop assuming that Target ship = Abyssal

The Abyssal ships seen so far are ones who were never used like they were supposed to be.

Planefag pointed out that the reason why the French Fleet would be abyssal is not just because they were scuttled but because they were scuttled shamefully instead of being used in war.

All of the other ships you listed as Certain Abyssals served in war, yet you're claiming Oklahoma, who missed the entire war and was only raised near the end and written off is supposed to come back wanting to fight for the side that said she was too far gone to fight?

If OK is back she's 100% certain abyssal material, she was ignored by her country, forgotten by history and sank as a wrecked hulk being sent off for the scrapyard.

Yeah, but what makes Ok questionable is that she was technically sunk in combat with the enemy, albeit from an air attack in port.

She wasn't raised earlier because like Arizona, her hull was shattered to the point of no return, and other shit was more important

It could have just ended there with her being another PTSD stricken Pearl girl, but the fact that they dredged her corpse up and re-floated her for scrapping is what adds a degree of doubt.

They disturbed a massive tomb by doing that, lots of bad karma from that. The mystery is only compounded by the freak storm that took her and nearly sucked her Tugs down with her as she was being towed to the scrap yards.

We have no clue where her wreckage is. shes probably one of the few ships to have died twice.

Then why didn't Arizona come back as an Abyssal? They ignored her for the same reasons they did the Oklahoma: it would cost far too much to repair her for how much she was damaged. They still considered it, but by the time they had been able to right her and refloat her, it was late 1943 and she was HORRIBLY obsolete. Hell, she was obsolete already in 1941 because of her engines.

Though to be honest that --
>That's all it is. Whatever limited function the rule was originally intended to serve is long gone. Now it's just "4chan is a Bad Place, only Bad People go there or talk about going there, and Bad People get Punished".
is more or less how I feel about the 4chan view of, and reaction to, smilies. "Huh, weird. Still can't believe it gets a reaction like that. Or that there's a connection between a smiley-face and behavior; whatever connection it first used to signify is probably long gone by now. Well whatever it's board culture I'll just try to keep it in mind."

I'm just as confused as to why a forum would frown upon over-use of reaction images though.

Smiley hatred largely came about as a result of floods of AOL Instant Messenger preteens flooding the boards years ago when 4chan first started showing up in the news being accused of cyber-bullying, terrorism and other general hooliganism. The underageb& swarmed in thinking that 4chan would be a cool, rad place where they could blog about their daily lives and chit-chat with each other or post videos or pictures of them torturing cats, prompting /b/ to run most of them off with porn or, in the lattermost case, swift investigations that revealed their identities and reported their activities to the police. That time period is also the reason why namefags tend to be disliked unless they're namefagging for a good reason, like quest running.

So Anons still tend to have twtiches about smilies and unnecessary namefagging/camera whoring/whatever. Spacebattles, on the other hand, has a cadre of moderators who are all political allies, collect a swarm of like-minded posters around them, and then stamp out or demonize anything they don't like while ignoring when their own group does the same thing.

They're nothing but hypocrites.

Hm. An interesting way to put it.

Though for myself, I think I'd rather get a PM saying "Change this, this, and don't do that" like Death By Chains did (even if the reason ends up being "Because those are the fucking rules") than to post two a semi-colon and parenthesis and suddenly get people yelling "You are trash and I hope you die in a fire". ((Happened on one image-board long ago, made me go "Bwuh?" and try to remember to keep local rules in mind.))

Moderators can't be everywhere and can't respond immediately. But posters are right there in the thread with you. The response is far more immediate and likely to happen, compared to the "whenever somebody reports you, if they bother to, or if a mod happened to be in the thread at the time".

Of the A class destroyer the only thing the UK wanted to have apply was that they reach 27 knots.

The first 6 they made only made 26 and were seen as failed projects.

The British scrapped those as soon as they could along with 21 of the latter versions before they bothered to even classify the surviving ones as A class.

By that logic, every warship the US has used should come back as an abyssal out of jealousy. Face it, the Oklahoma is somewhat well known because of her loss at Pearl Harbor.

Settle, Crab, Parker and probably Wainwright can confirm that a shipgirl's 'crew' can survive outside of their body, so their interiors could concievably be hospitable to humans.
Hate's experience on Iowa could suggest that there's no spiritual barrier to someone outside of a shipgirl's crew entering her, though the circumstances of her hull make this more sketchy.
The Shrinking Effect has been confirmed to work in both directions on ordnance, and we're planning on testing it with their mounts, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it extends to humans.

The fairies themselves are scary because they're such an unknown factor, it even scares the girls.

The fairies obviously know 'what' the girls are and the fairies most likely know 'what' the Abyssals are but they aren't talking and aren't going to talk.

Yet the shipgirls, and humanity for that matter, are now depending on them.

They're doing all this to keep the girls going and helping us, yet they have made no contact or any request for something in return.

So what's the catch?

Really I would almost suspect that the ship girls are some type of android body that these fairies made to let these spirits fight, but that leads to question why they made them, what does it do to fairy kind if abyssals are killing humans? Humans have killed humans for centuries without a single fairy appearing, why now?

Are the fairies somehow partly responsible for the Abyssals and this is their attempt to make amends?

No one knows but they do and they aren't sharing.
