You are Elodie Rosetta Zumwalt and currently you are walking out of the showers with your newly formed crew of girls, all of them Naval Studies students just like you! You are finding common ground already with your fellow students. You’re sure that at least one or two of them you’ll meet in the course of your jobs. This couldn’t make you any happier.

Of course, they weren’t happy about having to shower at 6 in the morning on a vacation week. “Ugh…” Winona groans, rubbing at her eyes as she tries to hold her towel up. “Can’t we wake up at normal people times, Ellie?”

“I don’t see what the problem is,” says Ingrid as she buttons up her blouse. Her skirt, pantyhose, and the rest of her uniform were on the bench next to her. Ingrid’s blonde hair, normally done in a neat ponytail was all wet and drooping down the back of her neck. “You know the saying, right, Elodie?”

You smile. “Early to bed, early to rise.”

“Makes one healthy and wise,” Ingrid finishes. “Isn’t that right, Stack?” You all look over to see Stack completely fallen asleep on one of the benches, covered up in her towel. Ingrid picks up a towel, then softly tosses at it her.

Well, tries to anyway, it completely whiffs and lands next to her. Ingrid looks at you all, with a slight blush to her cheeks as she professionally walks up to Stack, then smacks her on the bum. “Yow!” Stack jolts awake, rubbing her butt. “Hey, no one gets to touch my butt without my permission!”

In the excitement of all this, you realize that Josephina has already dressed herself up and is already walking out the door. “Josephina.” She pauses, looking back nervously. “Aren’t you going to stay with us?”

Josephina coughs, twiddling at her fingers. “W-… well, I mean, er. Uh. M- my roommate is probably worried about me, I-… I don’t want to get into trouble with the deck officer.”

“Ellie’s an Officer,” says Winona. “She can get you out of it.”

“No, no, I wouldn’t want to be a bother, sorry.” She slowly slinks out the door, biting her lip. “Mer- I mean, th-“ She catches herself. “Thank you.” She immediately hurries away. She comes back. “You have my number, call me.” She then goes away again.

Ingrid nods, placing her hands on her hips. “Yeah, that’s right. I should get going too. My roommate is gonna be pissed if I don’t return those boardgames.”

Stack nods, rubbing at her hair. “Well, I ain’t doing nothing. Y’all can do as you wish.”

I'll give you something directly from my refs.

> Appearance: 5’2 in height. Short fluffy black hair with red streak done up in two tiny pigtails. Tan skin skin, blue eyes. Always seen wearing her black leather gloves for loading duties. Wears black thigh highs with white stripes near the top. Winning smile. Flat as a board.

> Uniform appearance: Dark blue button jacket with elements of WWII US Navy uniform. Light blue long sleeve blouse undershirt. Ribbon around sailor collar is red. Miniskirt is also dark blue. Comes with white sailor cap or captain’s cap with the LGA Fleur de Lis emblazoned on front for Officers (of which the MC is one).

“Oh?” She grins happily, crossing her arms. “Y’all want to tangle with moi?” She places her hand on her chest, prudly. Ingrid rolls her eyes as she pulls on her pantyhose. “Why, I would be honored to have such fine friends as you and yours to accompany me on my training regimen!”

You nod, folding your arms. “So what exactly do you do on your regimen?”

“Simple, I warm up with some exercises, then I have a one mile run.” She counts it all off on her hand. “Then we go into pull-ups, push ups, leg and arm exercises and weight-lifting, then we finish it off with loading practices. Key is to load 50 75mm shells within the span of 3 minutes.”

… Ah.

She stands up happily, patting you on the arm. “It’ll be a rip snortin’ good time! Come on!” She looks over at Ingrid. “What about you, Berry? Wanna come along and I can tone those lovely little legs of yours?”

“Unfortunately, I’ll have to refuse,” she says. “I have to tutor some General Studies kids. You guys have fun.” Aw, that’s a shame. But considering how… extreme Stack’s exercise is, you wouldn’t blame her if she were making up excuses.

“And what about you, Winona?” asks Stack. Winona gives a thumbs up, smiling. “Great! Me and you are gonna get along like mashed taters and gravy!”

You and Winona collapse onto the gym floor. The gym currently is occupied by a few Naval Studies kids taking some laps around, some stretching, others taking the opportunity to play some pickup basketball as well. You and Winona however couldn’t even make it to the bleachers before collapsing of exhaustion. It was like every muscle in your body was screaming at you to stop.

And yet Stack wasn’t even phased. She was sweating of course, but she didn’t even seem tired. “Alright, I saved the best for last!” She rolls up a cart of simulation shells next to a loading rack. “Loading!”

Winona whines. “Can we not? I’m tired.”

“Ah, don’t be a pussy, Nona,” says Stack. “I do this all the time!”

“You ever consider that maybe people aren’t as strong as you,” you say quietly. She scratches her chin, pensive.

She shrugs. “Eh. Want to at least try?”

> “I’ll make an example. Let’s do this.”

“I’ll make an example for us.” You roll up the sleeves on your already short sleeved PT shirt, right up past the shoulders. You walk up to the loading rack, spinning up your shoulders and arms, keeping them loose. “How do I do this?”

“Simple,” says Stack. “You pick up a shell.” She bends over, then hefts up a shell, then rams it down the simulation breech, flicking her pushing hand up as well. “Then do that. Try and do it as many times in three minutes.”

“Alright.” You get yourself ready. Winona still lies on her chest, watching you. Stack hits the timer on her phone. Now! You hurry to pick up a shell.

You groan, slowly lifting it up. You can feel the edges of the bottom of the shaft dig right into the palm of your hands. “Don’t lift it from the bottom, lift it from the sides!” says Stack calmly. Alright, alright. Next time. You tip the round in, then shove it in. “That one doesn’t count. You didn’t bring your ramming hand out of the way.”

Ah fuck. Alright. You hurry to grab another shell. You can feel your body absolutely screaming at you to stop. But it’s too late now. It was always too late. You shove it in, this time lazily bringing your hand up. “Alright. One.” You grab another. Looks like you’re catching your second wind. You shove it in, this time faster and with more pop to your hand. “Two.”

And another! “Three!”

Ha! You can do this all day! “Time!” What. She holds up her phone. That was three minutes!? “I gotta say, three in three minutes isn’t too bad.”

“How come you didn’t count the first one?” asks Winona.

“If you don’t bring your ramming hand out of the breech, it’ll eat your hand,” says Stack. “That’s what my mama taught me.” Ouch. “But good work!” She gently pats you on the arm, and you twitch a little in sore pain. “You just need a bit more practice is all, I declare. How’s the body feel?”

If she were to gently tap you, you’d die.

“I’m tired. So tired,” you say. “I think if you were to touch me, I’d probably die.”

“Hm.” Stack rubs her chin, nodding. “Alrighty. Go ahead and take five. I’ll bring y’all some water.” And with that, Stack leaves the gym to grab a few bottles of water for you and Winona.

You sigh, walking over to Winona, then sitting down on top of her. “Get offa me,” she says.

“No,” you say back.

She groans as she flops her head onto the floor. You flop backwards as well, letting your body just collapse and stop working for a minute or two. It’s not even lunch time and you’re already about to die of exhaustion. A regular morning jog every other day is fine. But doing this? How does Stack do this? Is she planning on joining the military or something?

But as you stare up at the ceiling, Griselda comes into view. “Oh, hey, Ellie.”

“Griselda,” you say. “Can I help you?”

“Well, I’m glad I caught you and Winona here.” She smiles happily. “I recruited another crew today! Janek is letting the Junior Polish Student’s Association join in on the fun! That’s four whole crewmembers too!”

“We have a Junior Polish Student’s Association?” asks Winona.

“Apparently so!” Griselda happily grins, slapping her cheeks proudly. “That brings us up to four tanks! One more crew and we can field ourselves a full team of five in time for our duo with Kursk this weekend, hehee!” She blinks, looking at you two. “So, you two aren’t looking aren’t so hot.”

“Unfortunately, we’re not,” you say. “Stack is a very good girl, but she has worked us to the bone.”

“Aw, that’s terrible.” Griselda kneels down next to you two. “Man though, last year, you should’ve been there when Wendy was still instructing us. It was like Full Metal Jacket but with girls and tanks instead of Vietnam and Marines.” She looks up with her eyes, in thought. “Hm. I kind of miss her, actually.” Stockholm Syndrome in its infancy. “I’m sure you’ll get used to the work ethic of Tankery athletes though. We have to keep loose and strong if we want to match other teams. Kursk especially.”

“Why Kursk though?” asks Winona. “Isn’t this our first year in the tournament? Why are they matching us against them?”

“Our ITL standings,” says Griselda. “It should be fine though, Oryola’s pretty honorable. She won’t dump us with ISU-152s and SU-100s… at first.” That doesn’t make you feel better. She helps you up, then gently walks you to the bleachers so you can sit down. Winona as well gets the same treatment, and she immediately leans up against you. “Hey, Stack!”

“Howdy!” Stack comes over, bringing up a pair of waters for you and Winona. Thankfully, she’s already uncapped and opened them both, which means the first thing you two do is chug to your heart’s delight. “So, Griselda. How are the tanks doing?”

“Heinlein’s letting me buy off one of their old Pershing’s. The IS Chassis is in too as well. And get this, I’m going to use the last reserves of our cash to get ourselves a Sherman!” Stack grins happily at that, nodding. “Ain’t that great?”

“The best,” says Stack.

The latter. Unlike JSF or ITL Tankery, Judges deem KOs based on whether or not a shell would actually damage anything important if it penetrates.

However, if a penetrating hit is deemed to have done enough damage to the interior and to have "killed the crew" in one blow, then you're basically out of it.

> “Sure, why not.”

You sigh. “Sure, why not?” Griselda smiles, helping you to your feet. “It’s not like I have much else to do today anyway.”

“Awesome!” Griselda happily grins, helping Winona up as well. “You two are going to love the Pershing, it came in today with the Poles as well! They should be at the Hangar right now. I’ll bring the Dodge out front.”



The cool winds and the surprisingly gentle ride in the back of Griselda’s Dodge WC51 truck. Must have been modified with a better suspension you think. Stack and Griselda ride in front, talking tanks and tournament politics with each other as the two of you ride on into the hangar. “What the…” Griselda blinks as she slows the tank up to the tanks outside. You all stand up in awe at the Pershing.

Which has now been painted very conspicuously. The edges along the tracks were trimmed red, with the hull being painted bright white. The turret as well was red, and along its sides were white stylized wings. You’ve heard of this, the Polish Hussars. Four girls were busy standing in awe of it, happily. “What did you girls do!?” yells Griselda. She shuts off the engine to the Dodge, and hurries over.

This was the Junior Polish Students Association. Tinier and apparently much more enthusiastic versions of their seniors. “Griselda! Cześć! Jak się masz?”


>> No.45802105


“No, no. Listen.” The Polish girls all look at her, attentively. “When I said you could have any tank you wanted, I didn’t say just any tank! I was hoping that you’d…” They all stare at her, apparently not understanding. “… why did you even paint it that way anyway?”

“Powodzenia,” she says. They continue communicating with Griselda in Polish to her, and they all happily giggle and laugh in enthusiasm. So the Pershing now belongs to a quadruple of tiny happy Polish girls who… only speak polish.

At least the other tanks look good. Griselda must have given them a good scrubbing or two. The Centaur, the Panzer III, the Sherman, and the Churchill.

You gently place a hand on Griselda’s head, patting it. She looks at you, frowning deeply. The Poles all play around, chasing each other with hoses and paint all around the M26 Pershing. “I was trying to see if I could find them a nice 7TP to work with. I really shouldn’t have said they could have any tank they wanted.”

“Well, it’s happening,” you say. “What do you think?”

“Well, it’s not a bad paintjob. I’m surprised they did it so quickly.” Griselda sighs, crossing her arms.

Stack and Winona walk up. “I kind of like it,” says Winona. Stack frowns a bit, obviously quite peeved at the loss of any dignity for the tank. “Come on, you guys can’t be all buzzkills! Tankery’s supposed to be fun, they’re having fun! This isn’t University where all the tanks are Centurions or Pershings or Cold War stuff.”

“Yeah, I guess.” Griselda still frowns, saddened. “By the way though, I’m glad you’re here. The other crew has decided to reserve the Churchill as their tank of choice. I wanted to know if you were going to choose the Panzer III or the Centaur.”

“The Centaur?” Griselda smiles a little. “M’kay. It’s yours then. You, Winona, and Stack can take a test drive in it for a bit if you want.”

“Oh, I’m not sure if-“ Winona and Stack immediately come up on either side of you.

“We’d love to!” they both say.

“Great!” Griselda happily nods. Okay, thanks for treading on your toes, girls. You sigh, looking at them a bit frustratedly. You’re still tired from the morning exercises, do you really have to go and learn how to use a tank -now-? They both nod happily, then immediately sprint over to the tank and hurry inside.

You sigh. You guess you are. You gently pat the clean exterior of the tank, and immediately suck in your gut. It feels so cold. You climb up gently, then look inside to see Winona’s face in the turret. “Hey, there, Ellie! Come on in! It’s nice in here!” You slowly step on inside, then find the tank completely dark and cramped. Wow, they make it look a lot better in the promotional ads. “Stack, where are the lights?”

Stack looks back as she turns on the engine. “Oh, we’re going to have to turn on the engine if we want internal lights. You want to drive, Winona?”

“Me?” Winona looks at herself, nervously. “I’ve only ever driven tankettes and lights. Never something this big!”

“You’re better than me then!” Stack crawls up through the machinery and ammo racks into the turret with you two. “Me and Ellie here will guide you. Ellie, why don’t you unbutton and stand out.”

You nod. Alright. You open up the hatch and stand out as well. Wow. Everything feels bigger from- The tank suddenly rumbles underneath you. “What was that!?” you yelp. You hear a muffled yell. “What!?”

Stack pokes her head up. “That was Winona turning on the engine. She wants to know how far we want to go.”

That is a pretty bad idea. IIRC the IS-2 was a Bunker but it needed to carry Two-piece ammunition and different charges for each round, making the logistics in the tank and ammunition very small.

and while the frontal armor was good, the sides and rear were very thin to compensate as well.

I'm very reluctant with the IS-series.

I think some were equipped with a 100mm anti-tank gun instead of the 122mm howitzer, which should make the tank a lot zippier and fire faster thanks to reduced weight and might make it a better anti-tank playform.

Stack gave you and Winona throatmics and headsets so that the two of you could communicate more clearly. Stack was poking her head out of the loader’s hatch helping direct and guide Winona down there. It took her some getting used to, but she’s apparently figured out the driving of a Centaur quite well. Stack leans over to you. “Good thing about the Centaur is that she’s not going to speed into anything too quickly!”

You nod. “Yeah, this is alright!” The wind in your hair, the rumble of a gigantic engine behind you, and sitting on a six pounder gun? This too is Tankery.

Stack brings her fingers to her throat mic. “Alright, Winona, right turn!”

“Got it!” she respond. She slowly turns right on the driving track for the Tankery team. “Wooowheee! This baby handles pretty well!”

“Yeah!” you say. “Let’s call them up for lunch!” You pull out your new smartphone. Finally, now it’s time to use it!

Stack looks at you. “You know how to use a smartphone, right?”

Of course you do! You just have to figure out why it only has one button.



After backing traffic up for a kilometer or two on the road you finally meet with Ingrid and Josephina on the side of the road outside of the main town area. They carry a few paper bags filled with some food. When Winona stops up next to them, you grin at them. Stack as well nods to them. “Hey, girls!” you call.

Ingrid seems less than impressed, while Josephina is apparently awed by its size. “We gonna have lunch or what?” she asks.

“Sure, let’s head up to one of the fields,” you say. “Climb aboard.” Stack helps take the food up into the tank, then helps Ingrid and Josephina up. Once they’re aboard, they sit down next to the turret. “… you two not going to ride inside?”

Josephina shrugs. “It looks cramped.”

“I don’t do well in tight spaces,” says Ingrid.

Ugh. This is going to be a thing with them.

When Winona arrives on the field, she stops up the tank, then pokes her head out of the driver’s hatch. She wipes sweat off of her brow, then throws off the headset. “It’s really hot in there!” says Winona. “How do you deal with that?”

Stack grins. “You try to wear less! It’s why Jap schools go for miniskirts and short shorts over thick overalls.” You honestly wouldn’t mind wearing that. “Come on! Let’s have ourselves a good old picnic!” Winona and Stack hop out of the tank, hurrying to settle down a blanket while Josephina digs out the food and the drinks. Ingrid meanwhile sits on the back of the tank, looking a little bored.

There aren't a lot of Czech, Romanian, Austrian, Hungarian etc. tanks that have enough service life or versatility to justify turning them into starters. At least that I know of. Most Eastern theatre factions that weren't Russian used German-loaned tanks.

As for why Russian tanks aren't a starter option, that's more of an unfortunate case of creator provincialism I guess. I'm more familiar with western tanks than I am with Russian ones, thus I tend to gravitate towards those. As an American, I like the M4 Sherman.

However, I like the idea of the players also choosing the Centaur tank in this one. Has that idea of bringing the tank back to its spiritual homeland, that of British navy officers conceptualizing landships.

However, that doesn't mean Russian tanks arem't going to be sidelined entirely. Your tournament rival in earnest is going to be Kursk Girls Boarding school, who have expanded from their "patient, casemate assault gun" options and into more versatile T-34/85s, IS tanks, and KV tanks. Some of the US schools on your side of the pond as well will be using Russian tanks purely because T-34s are pretty cheap.

In short, I will admit I'm biased, but I will try to make up for it.

You step around on the tank, then sit down next to Ingrid. “Hey, Ingrid. Listen, thanks for saving last night with those board games, I never really had stuff like that when I was a kid so, it was fun, really.”

Ingrid nods, arms folded, sitting back against the turret of the Centaur. “Yeah, it was cool. Don’t worry about it.” You hug your legs, smiling at her. She looks over at you, then looks down at her phone, apparently going through box scores.

“So er… I noticed you going through baseball cards,” you say. She looks over, curious. “Is that like a hobby?”

“Yeah, me and my Dad collected baseball cards since I was a kid. My prize is a Curt Schilling when he played for the Diamondbacks,” she says. Oh. Okay. You know some of those words but not the context of them. “Why do you ask?’

“I was just curious, you like baseball?”

She blinks, then smiles a little. “Yeah. Yeah, I do. Do you?”

After some laborious effort in getting Stack and Josephina to come back, you managed to resettle the picnic on the engine block of the tank, with the blanket there to make sure no food crumbs or anything spills into the engine. The ham and cheese sandwich is absolutely delectable, and it’s backed up by one of the rare tastes of soda you have, like a sparkling dance on your tongue it feels like. “And for dessert…” Ingrid reaches in and pulls out a small cake. “Same cake!”

“Ooooh.” Stack leans in, licking her lips. “Give me the biggest slice.”

“Oh, right, because everything is bigger in Texas, Stack?” says Ingrid smugly. Stack frowns a little, peeved. “I think some cake would do you a bit of good.”

“Yeah, I can’t believe you’re actually Texan,” says Winona. “You look more like you came south of the border.” Ingrid and Winona giggle a little at Stack’s expense.

“I don’t like being bullied,” says Stack as she crosses her arms and pouts.

“We’re just joshing you.” Ingrid ruffles Stack’s hair a bit. “Here, I’ll give you the big slice.” Stack’s eyes light up immediately as she takes her slice. She immediately digs in. Winona and Josephina as well take a bit of cake to eat as well, and happily smile at its taste.

And as for you, a bit of chocolate filling with a vanilla frost and a cherry on top? This thing is an absolute slice of heaven. Hm, hm, hm. You grin happily. Oh you could stay out here all day!

“Well, I mean- won’t boys kind of upset the point of this being a Girls Academy?” you ask.

Griselda smiles a bit, giggling. “We are. It’s only for the summer. We’re just trying to build good relations with schools on the land.”

“Ah, fuck those landlubbers!” says Stack. “We’re fine as we are! We don’t need no stinkin’ boys!” She folds her arms, pouting furiously. You roll your eyes. You’ve dealt with boys before, they’re perfectly normal people if you treat them that way.

“Uh, guys.” Ingrid stands up in her seat a bit, holding onto the side rails. “Look.” You all turn your heads towards the setting sun.

And out of it come the silhouette of dozens of planes. Single-engine fighters of all types, twin-engine bombers like the Lockheed Hudson, and even a pair of mighty B-17 Flying Fortresses, all accompanying a gigantic C-5 Galaxy. The roar of their engines is deafening as they fly low over the buildings and trees of LGA, shocking many bystanders standing in the streets and forcing them all into cover. The ground underneath shook from the arrival of their planes, and in effect made your tank feel tiny in comparison.

It was like being invaded. All of you were shocked. “Jesus Christ,” says Winona.

Stack snorts. “Show offs.”

“Griselda!” Gertrude and her staff, along with the command staff of the Skycraft team led by Marina Polikarpov and Captain Spruance as well greet you. “Wow, I’m glad you brought Ellie here too. She’ll be a good example of what a low level Naval Studies Officer looks like.”

“What?” you ask.

“Ah, don’t worry, you won’t need to speak,” says Gertrude.

Captain Spruance nods. “Indeed. We are simply introducing the boys to their new environments. They will be bunking here on the Skycraft fields in portable facilities.”

Gertrude checks her watch. “Oooh jeez, we should get to the lecture. C’mon, Cap.” Gertrude pats Captain Spruance on the head, to which the Captain immediately and angrily slaps Gertrude’s hand away. To her credit, Gertrude plays it off well, giggling as you all walk into the hangar.

Over a hundred boys were seated in the center of the hangar, accompanied by their coaches and training staff. You actually saw that there were some girls intermixed with the crowd as well. At least it isn’t all boys. Maybe those girls can keep them in line. Maybe their Captain is a girl! You all stepped up the stage, then sat down as Gertrude took the podium. “Hello, boys of the Kill Devil Hills High School Skycraft team. My name is Gertrude Pool, Senior Class President. Here with me is Captain Spruance, Marina Polikarpov of LGA’s Skycraft team, and Ensign Elodie Zumwalt. Let us formally introduce you to Lafayette Girls Academy.”

They all applaud politely. They wear leather jackets and green flight suits, having just dismounted from their planes it seems. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors and ages, but they were boys alright.

You honestly don’t see what the fuss is about, they coming aboard. You’re not even interested in romance these days anyway.

Next to you, Griselda has already fallen asleep. On the other side, Ingrid is busy fussing about on her phone, checking box scores it seems. You look all over the row next to you and find that your entire crew is distracted. Stack and Winona have fallen asleep on each other, while Josephina is apparently desperately trying to stay awake as Gertrude speaks.

You sigh, staring forward and looking at some of the boys. You can see a few of them whispering to their friends or goofing off. At least Griselda and your crew aren’t alone in this. You’re going to give them a stern talking to when this is all over. “… and lastly! We are all in this together, for a safe and secure community. If you need help, our Law Enforcement Studies students will be happy to assist you. Just dial 333 on your cellphones and we’ll have a couple of units dispatched to you. Any questions?”

Everyone raises their hands.

“… I’m already dating someone,” she says.

Their hands go down. Even the girls too. Hot diggity.

“Right, let me introduce Captain Spruance and Ensign Zumwalt. Girls?” The crowd applauds again as you and Captain Spruance come a walking to the podium. Please don’t put the spotlight on you, please don’t put the spotlight on you.

“My name is Captain Amy Spruance!” declares the Captain. “Welcome aboard my ship! I am the leader of all Naval Studies kids aboard this ship, and my authority is absolute! You can tell who we are by the hats we are wearing!” She holds up her hat, and you in turn hold up your hat as well. “Remember these hats, they are our symbol of authority!”

Captain Spruance, please.

“I will make things brief, don’t cause trouble, and get along with our students.”

“That’s it,” she says. “Ensign, you want to say anything?” You shake your head. “Alrighty. Finally, your team Captain, Jack Cochran.” The crowd applauds more loudly as the boys stomp and whoop for the arrival of their team Captain, a boy named Jack Cochran. He steps up to the podium, his leather jacket bearing a white armband with a blue chevron on it. You and Captain Spruance sit down.

“Alrighty, everybody!” he says. “First things first. Listen to the Coaches. We do as we say. And we have the best summer of our lives.” The boys applaud once more again, happily. “Thank you, thank you.” He must be popular. “I’d like to thank Gertrude Pool for making this possible for us. We are going to use this opportunity to practice our asses off, and we are going to take the Fall Classic by storm! Who’s with me!?” The crowd stands up, loudly cheering and applauding Jack. “Yeah! Alright! Sit down, sit down!” The crowd starts settling down, going back to listening to him.

You roll your eyes, folding your arms. How much is this going to take?


You finally exit the lecture with your crew. Everyone’s half asleep, groaning, having missed almost everything. But Gertrude was kind enough to meet with Jack after the fact. “Don’t worry, the boys and girls are well-behaved. We won’t tread on your toes,” he says.

“Good, good,” says Gertrude. “And hopefully we won’t have any teenage pregnancy cases on our hands.”

“Yeah, yeah, nobody wants that,” he says quickly. “But hey, you guys are free to come watch us.”

“Same,” says Gertrude. “Take care, Jack.” They shake hands happily.

Jack calls for his ride. “Hey, Jeep Jockey! Bring the Jeep around!”

Gertrude leads you all back to the cars. “Sorry for making you all sit through that.”

“It’s fine,” says Griselda as she rubs her eyes. “I made Elodie sit through it anyway, I should be apologizing.”

“It is quite alright. I’m just happy to be spending time with you all,” you say. “Though, an apology would be nice.”

Griselda nods. “Sorry, Ellie. Sorry, guys.”

Winona yawns loudly. “It’s been a tiring day. Let’s just go home.” You agree with that by and large.

“I’ll drive you guys back,” says Griselda. “Night, Sis. I’ll see you in the morning.”

Gertrude waves goodbye to you all as you mount up into Griselda’s Dodge truck. “See ya later, alligators! Can’t wait to see you perform in the matches!”

You sigh, neither can you honestly.



“Tomorrow, I want you to come by after lunch,” she says. “I’m gonna work together some practice tomorrow and Friday right before the match. We’ll have a small free for all to try and gauge how your crew works. Then Friday, it’ll be practice at the range.” Fair enough. Griselda walks you and Winona back to your room. Ingrid, Stack, and Josephina went back to their own rooms, each one saying good night to you all. Might as well give them some space, you don’t want to seem clingy. “Got all of that?”

“Yeah,” you say.

Winona yawns, already pulling her jacket and her blouse off. “I’m beat!” She flops onto your bed. “Good night.”

“Winona, that’s my bed,” you say.

“I’m too tired to get up onto the top bunk, lemme have this just for one night,” she begs. You look at Griselda. She shrugs, keeping her lips pressed tight.

“Your bunk is so comfy.” She turns her head. “Besides, Cuddles is already on your bed.” What. How did that snake get out!? Cuddles pokes out of your pillow, hissing and slithering. Winona needs to make a better cage for that cute little monster.

“Whatever.” You look over to Griselda. “Sorry, I-“

She smiles, waving her hand. “It’s fine. Good night, I expect you after lunch, alright?” You nod. After lunch, got it. The two of you shake hands, and off she goes. You shut the door behind you, then turn to Winona groaning as she clutches your pillow.

“Come on, scoot over.” She sighs, rolling over to the very edge of your bed.

“Thanks,” she says.

You nod, then gently reach out for Cuddles. He hisses a bit in fright, curling up into a ball before you pick him up. You place him back down in his terrarium, then shut the lid tight. You don’t want him slithering about on your body while you sleep. Good lord, he’s cute, but damn it, that’ll keep you up for ages. You pull the blanket out of her bunk, then toss it over her, then grab your own and lie down. You shut off the lights. “Night.”

“Night,” she whines.

“Could you scoot over just a teensy bit?” you ask.

“No,” she says as you both snuggle beneath your separate blankets.

I had planned on working on a self-made visual novel at some point but I put it on the backburner considering how college is going.

Though yeah, something like Recettear maybe or something, I dunno.

All the dirty fanction and recording devices were now distributed across the academy.

What are the chances the Film Club and Anime Club will join Gris-Gris this time around?

>> No.45810128

Depends on how desperate Gris-Gris gets if she can't find a 5th crew before Friday.

>> No.45810146

Someday...When we gather a crew, like how he makers of Katawa Shoujo started out in /tg/ as a simple idea.

>> No.45810159

Isn't she desperate already? and doesn't she need to patch up some empty slots for crew members like the polish?

>> No.45810169


>> No.45810192

The idea is there.

She's not THAT desperate. And as for patching up holes in the crew, I honestly generally don't count holes in a crew roster unless it's actually important. Usually the missing crewmember is the radio operator, whose role can be easily filled by the Commander.

A dating sim, involving girls that have various disabilities, that was created by a few guys in /tg/. It turned out to be a surprisingly very good game with deep characters and beautiful artwork.

>> No.45810238

wouldn't that cause problems with crew efficiency? Since the commander and radio operator need to work separately or else it will overwhelm the commander job?

At the very least wouldn't it mess with coordination?

How about Frendell joining?

Now a crew just need to be gathered. An artist, a coder, maybe a few people willing to voice act for a dollar, and a budget to work with.

>> No.45810275

Like I said, I don't count holes unless in a crew roster unless it's -actually- important. There's no real need at the moment to simulate loss in crew efficiency at the moment.

As for Fredendall, she's already graduated, she's gone.

>> No.45810295


Didn't she get held back a year, because of the Great Frendall post election fire incident, so she'd end up graduating along with Trude's year?

>> No.45810296

Because the number of tanks is small and a radio operator isn't that necessary and if we increase it to a larger amount then would it matter?

>> No.45810343

She was a Senior in Gertrude's Sophomore year. She got held back, and still graduated on time the following year.

-Actually- Important is the key word. I don't consider holes in a crew roster important enough to simulate unless it fulfills a role narratively.
