Woohoo. got me some pizza like the fat slob I am, beer, and gots mah tunes. let's see if we can wrap up this Aleutian islands thing and get somewhere warmer!

++

The sound of morning cartoons, of all things, wakes you up. You're initially confused- there's no TVs in the place other than the one up in the lounge- but you don't remember going to bed, either.

Cracking one eye reveals that you ended up just sleeping on the couch. Someone- probably Merlin or Goose- draped a blanket over you, and thought to put your boots on the floor in front of the couch- amusingly, with the heels together at a forty five degree angle. You haven't done that since your days at the academy. Rolling over and stretching also reveals why your feet stayed warm- Ice fell asleep on the couch too, twisted sideways with her head leaned back and her legs folded up next to yours on the edge of the couch.

All in all, it's fairly impressive- she's gotta be fairly flexible to be able to get comfortable like that. Either that or she just didn't want to wake you up. Hard to say, really.

You yawn and stretch again, turning your head to look at the TV, where four humanoid turtles are busily doing ninja things through the opening credits. You're honestly not really sure what that's all about, but apparently it's interesting enough for Maverick and Goose, both of whom have bowls of cereal on TV trays in front of them and are watching with rapt attention.

1/2

>> No.22997269

Well, kind of rapt, anyway. You can hear them talking in between mouthfuls of whatever it is they're eating.

“They're kinda cute like that.” Goose says, taking another bite of cereal.

“Who? The turtles?” Maverick answers, confused. “I mean, I guess, if you're into that sort of thing.”

Goose giggles a bit. “No, silly. Frank and Tabitha.”

“Oh,” Maverick responds, adding in a small laugh of her own. “Yeah, I guess so. Just don't let Katya know we think so.”

“Is she really that jealous?” Goose asks, sounding kind of surprised.

Maverick nods. “Well, kinda. She thinks Ice is only interested now that she's done the hard work of showing that Frank can care about things past a target and his crew.” She shrugs, her accent becoming a bit more pronounced. “But she coulda just asked me, too.”

Goose giggles again. “Frank says you're just telling stories about that and you never did anything.”

“Frank just doesn't want to corrupt your innocence or something.” Maverick says. “Besides, he doesn't know what Rick and I were doing anyway.”

For now, you elect to remain quiet, interested in the conversation. Well, kind of- of course you knew what she and Rick were doing- after all, you occupied the bunk just above Rick's aboard the Saratoga anyway. And got to listen to him brag about 'bagging a witch' early on, followed by listening to him talk about how great Patty was as a person later. It got old, fast. Then again, you suppose most first loves do get old fast when you have to hear about them constantly.

Goose makes a strangled noise. “I-I don't really think I want to hear any more about Rick, Patty.” She says. “You talk about him an awful lot. Why don't you write him?”

Maverick's shoulders slump visibly. “I dunno.” She says, her voice small. “He... I... We. We kind of grew apart, I guess. It just wouldn't be the same.”

Goose doesn't say anything in response to that.

They sit quietly for a minute, then Goose speaks up again. “So how do you think they're going to take the news?”

Maverick shrugs. “No tellin'. Slider thinks Frank and Merlin are going to be happy as hell, and Ice will go back to being the frost queen of the pacific. I dunno about the rest. Slider's pretty happy though. What about you? You excited?”

You can't see Goose's face, but you can hear a hesitant note in her voice. “I don't know. I... I'm always nervous landing on carriers. It's so easy to mess that up.”

Maverick wraps an arm around her young charge's shoulders. “I was like that too. Just watch the steelwings sometime when they're on approach. Hell, halfa them can't even see the deck if they get their noses up too high. If they can do it, you got it made!”

This is one of those all too rare chances to see Maverick dealing with Goose without anyone else around. Plus you never knew that she'd been that shook up about Orion- maybe everything since then has just been an act? Hard to say, but it kind of seems that way, at least to you.

Then again, no one ever accused you of being the most astute. After all, you routinely strap yourself to a configuration of a million moving pieces flying in tight formation and several thousand pounds of jet fuel and piss all over physics and Newton whenever you can.

Goose sighs. “Yeah, I guess you're right. They do have it a lot worse than we do. When do we have to report aboard, anyway?”

Maverick shrugs. “Dunno, Slider didn't say. I'm sure Ice'll tell us when she wakes up and finds out.”

Down at your feet, Ice stirs.

“Well,” Goose says. “It must be soon, right? They were loading up all our equipment into those two planes earlier.”

Maverick shrugs again. “Dunno. When did you go down to the hangar, anyway?”

“Earlier this morning, before you got up!” Goose says, defensively. “I wanted to help make sure the planes were ready to go, and Hank and Dale have been teaching me how to play poker and talk like a Texan!”

“Texan!” Maverick says, feigning outrage. “Why would you want to sound Texan?” Her own drawl is clearly detectable, now.

Goose giggles, but doesn't say anything.

The thumping of boots on the floor announces Slider.

“Hey,” She says to the two witches in front of the TV. “The lovebirds still- oh, nevermind. Good. You two got your stuff together?”

“Yeah.” Maverick responds. “We're good to go, just waiting on the rest of the posse.”

“Alright, good. Wanna help me wake them up?” Slider asks.

You quickly screw your eyes shut again, relying on Slider's characteristic heavy tread to judge her distance from you. Many things she may be, sneaky isn't one of them.

“Nah. I don't want to be in the same room when you wake Ice up anyway. She's gonna be mad.” Maverick says.

Slider scoffs. “Why, because we finally let her sleep with Frank?”

“Oh, yeah,” Ice says, sarcastically. “Like that was something you've been fighting me real hard on.” She whacks you in the hip to 'wake' you up. You duly act surprised.

“Wha- huh? Morning already?” You mumble, doing your best just-woke-up impression. You're not sure they buy it.

“Or what counts as morning around here, anyway.” Slider says as you twist in the couch, thumping your feet down on the floor. “Go grab a shower and get your shit togther, Frank. We've got an op.”

“Wonderful.” You say, not feeling it. “Chow?”

“Cooked.” Slider responds. “The twins made it. It's not bad, I didn't know you could make spam good.”

“You're sure it's actual spam, and not that wartime crap they got last time?” You ask. “That spem or whatever the fuck it was?”

Slider grins. “Yeah. Real Spam. With an A. Oh, and uh... try not to stare when you go down there.” Her grin turns vicious.

It works so well because no matter what the shark-twins are... suffering from, one may presume Fronk showed Slider the website she eventually acquired it from.

Hell, it was probably J-List.

"HEY SLIDER, CHECK OUT THESE TIT-PILLOW THINGS AIN'T THAT A LAUGH!"

When one of those tit-pillows showed up in his rack two weeks later, he realized his error. But it was too late to take it back.

The horror potential just quadrupled. 1989 was the Age of Usenet... back when just owning a computer with a modem made you a gigantic giga-nerd. The whole "internet" as it then existed was... 'underground,' you could say. You could Find Shit you couldn't find anywhere else. Actually, in 1989 that was probably the only way you could acquire, uh, certain product catalogs on most military bases, since the NO PORN edict was still in effect at that time, IIRC.

It was all newsgroups back then; internet that pre-dates HTTP. They still exist and some are still fairly active, but most ISPs don't even offer newsgroup services anymore - it's entirely separate from hyper-text transfer protocol and works rather differently.

Back in the day the cool kids would use modems so archaic you'd have to set your phone into a cradle with speakers that'd hiss like Satan into the handset to connect to a newsgroup server, where you'd download a list of phone-company long-distance calling card numbers to access newsgroup servers outside of your local area to get the GOOD SHIT, which was usually a plaintext copy of the Anarchist's Handbook or something equally EDGY that'd take an hour to download, if not more. 9600 baud for the win, bitches.

Military commo geeks made good use of it; esp. because in 1989 half the people with the equipment had access through their work. Grid 1530 with red plasma screens - first laptop used in War (Gulf war.) Same laptop they used in Aliums to run the auto-guns.

That scene of Ice in the office as Merlin was introduced made it pretty clear to me. I'm not talking about the start of the series, I mean every mention of Ice prior.

Half-step up, as I said. Remember the drug memory? That was pretty hostile. Additionally it was incredibly unprofessional.

Look, let me tell you something about what happens to unit morale when there's obvious divisions and a segment is obviously marginalized or unwanted. Morale goes straight down the shitter. And if it goes on long enough, it extends through most of the unit. I saw it all the damn time with cross-leveled soldiers in reserve units who got marginalized. It's easy to do but it really does harm. So that wasn't even Ice being 'professional', it was her being so hostile as to override all professional concerns. And being a poor leader.

[x] “Don't worry about it none, Merlin. Just do me a favor and see about getting everyone together up in the lounge before I get out of the shower.” (Give everyone their presents all together)

“Don't worry about that, Merlin.” You say, stopping by your newly-empty room to grab the clean flight suit and your own packed flight bag. “Just see if you can't get everyone together in the lounge before I get out of the shower, ok?”

Merlin nods. “Ok Frank! We'll be waiting!”

You take maybe a bit longer in the shower than you normally would, fondly bidding it goodbye. While you won't want for hot water- one of the perks of a nuclear powered carrier- the ones aboard ship, even in the witch's quarters, are much smaller and spartan.

Still, it's not long before you're dressed and ready to go, your room all closed up and your flight bag in hand. Over your shoulder is the OD green bag that's sat for a few weeks, full of presents.

There's one more thing, though, one Merlin didn't know about.

You'll never know why you bought the lingerie, but you did. What do you want to do with it?

You decide to leave the lingerie here. Honestly, it's too much of a risk to be carrying with you through the whole war, and besides, you can always just buy more later. Probably.

You hastily scratch out a note reading “for you, my love,” and pin it to the panties, before leaving the whole set in one of the unoccupied rooms on the hall.

Heading upstairs, you run into Rosalie, coming in from her own rooms.

“Do you move this often?” She asks, exhaling. “Once I was assigned to the Foch, I did not have to move from my family's home near there.”

You shrug. “Yeah, we get around a lot. This is our first time back aboard since... well, since before this was a war.” You say, thinking. Last time you did a catapult launch was... what? The flight to shore with admiral Nixon?

“It must not be easy, moving around like this all the time.” She says, causing you to shrug again.

“It is what it is.” You answer. “We go where they need us. It'd be nice to have a home again, though, huh?”

She nods. “Oui. It will be nice. And I hear American carriers are nicer than the Foch, but I'm not sure that's true!”

Upstairs, everyone's gathered. None of the girls are wearing their flight gear, and most of them are even wearing pants.

Except the twins, who seem to be wearing clothing with the combined coverage of a candy bar wrapper. Alyssa looks like she could somehow care less, while Clarissa is actively 'seducing' Ayumi. For what it's worth, she doesn't appear to be having much luck.

“So what's the big deal, Frank?” Slider asks. “Merlin said you wanted all of us here.”

“When were you in Hawaii?” Alyssa asks, suddenly focusing on you.

Clarissa follows suit rather quickly. “Where in Hawaii? By Kaneohe? We’re from Hawaii ya know.”

Alyssa nods. “Could have shown you the best burger joint in the western hemisphere. Man, I miss those burgers.”

“The ones with pineapple?” her sister responds.

She nods. “Yeah! And that BBQ sauce they made? Oh man.”

“I can almost taste it.” Clarissa says, whistfully. “Speaking of tasting things.... hey Frank!”

“Not right now.” You respond. “Presents, then verbal jousting.”

“We weren't? I remember hearing you through the walls that one night on Maui, remember?”

“Well, we do agree on jousting, though, right?” Clarissa asks.

“Ah, it is what it is, boss” you say, digging out Maverick and Goose's gifts. “Here ya go. Again, sorry it's kinda thin, I'll make it up to you later, I promise.”

Goose looks at you, mock-sternly. “Just don't get me an ez-bake oven.” she says. “You can't make anything good with those!”

You laugh, pulling out Katya's gifts. “Here, Katya. I can't imagine you brought your chess set with you when you joined us.”

You'd outdone yourself, you thought, with the set- highly ornamental, marble and jet playing board with hand carved pieces made from American holly and bois de rose from Madagascar. The little guy in the shop assured you it was very unique, since the guy that made it made every set by hand, and showed you the maker's stamp on the underside of the board. It also coast you close onto a few hundred dollars, but you felt you could afford to part with the money.

“F... Frank it is gorgeous.” She stammers. She looks up at you. “I have nothing like it to give in return...”

“Sounds like fun. We'd better get down to the hangar and make sure we're sorted, then. Long trip for something to go wrong in.” You say, motioning to Merlin.

Ice nods. “I'm sure the twins will be down shortly.”

You grab your flight bag, now stuffed with a few of Merlin's presents- she didn't have room in her own bag- and the two of you walk down to the hangar together, where your ground crew is putting the final missiles in your aircraft now.

“Morning sir!” You chief greets you, handing you the paperwork. “Load's pretty good, eight agiles and four AMRAAMS. Pair of tanks under each wing should get ya there, I tell ya what.”

Your walkaround shows nothing worth worrying about- your chief is nothing if not thorough. The bay doors hang open, showing their deadly payload of missiles- their streamers removed- hanging on their launching arms. The bulky, angular external fuel tanks under your wings sound full, and there's even a power cart hooked up, so you don't have to burn gas to start up your APU.

Merlin, similarly, is pleased, agreeing that everything looks fine. The twins arrive sometime about midway through your walk, dressed, thankfully, in flight suits- though Alyssa has hers left unzipped enough to show she's still wearing that skimpy number underneath it. Go figure.

Satisfied with their own walks, the twins come over to discuss the flight plan- you'll stick with the transport until they land, then divert south west and land on the Saratoga. Technically, once your inside the IJAF's coverage, you don't need to be with the transports, but it's a matter of appearances.

Climbing inside the cockpit, you see the girls filing out of the house, their own heavy dufflebags on their backs, weapons in their hands. It almost looks, for a second, like a twisted picture of infantry on the march- hunched over against the weight of their bags, looking dog-tired and not slightly disgruntled.

Katya notices you looking long enough to wave, prompting you to wave back.

“You ready to do the lists Frank?” Merlin asks. “We've got a bit of time, we're ahead of schedule for once.”

“Yeah.” You say, watching the girls board the waiting transport. “Next stop: Japan.”

“I wonder if Katsumi can teach me Japanese?” Merlin wonders as the two of you start your checklists.

and that's the thread tonight guys! SOrry if it was kind of short, we kinda ended up in a rough spot on the arc, and I screwed up. Fleshed out the last part of what was supposed to be this thread too much, and ignored the first part, haha! oh well. we'll have a good one next week I think! and we're going back to a carrier, woo!

anyway, I'll see y'all next week, and I hope y'all still enjoyed it. I know the last few threads were kinda slow, and I'm sorry. we'll be getting back to things as proper soon! I promise!

Hey, quick question:
Do all machines speak in the same 'language' for Merlin? Or do different frames from different nations have 'accents'?

"Aegis was state of the art, the best SAM system yet devised, but it had one major weakness: Tico only carried ninety-six SM-2 surface-to-air missiles; there were one hundred and forty incoming. The computer had not been programmed to think about that."

It was. Read my paper back enough to where it's in three pieces now. Doesn't help that it's twenty-six years old, of course.
