ARCHIVES: FUCK IT
TWITTER: FUCK THAT TOO


Fleet Activities Yokosuka is a hurricane, and at its center sits Admiral Goto.

Officers and Commanders circulate in and out of the big conference room, bearing eyes-only printouts in their special classified document folders. They all pause at the door to show their ID to the fully-armored Marines scanning the hallway suspiciously. Two more are standing inside, their M-4s hanging heavy on their straps. The very fiber of the building itself seems to vibrate slightly - a pair of JSDF F-2s circling overhead on a perpetual Combat Air Patrol. Admiral Thomas is still observing the final assault on Iwo Jima, but nearly everyone else is in this room helping to bring the base to full combat alert. Outside you hear the throaty growl of diesel engines just over the quiet purr of the cooling fans - JGSDF Type 88 shore-to-ship missiles on their way to the coast. A deeper rumble follows, the sound of clinking tracks and whining road wheels close behind - you pull aside the shade and see a hulking M-110 self-propelled gun trundling after the Type 88s. Yokosuka was a fortress before, but within an hour it will be a citadel.

Hunkering almost forgotten by Goto's right is Shigure, with Jintsuu stationed on her left. Goto hasn't let her out of arms reach since phone call first came in. He has laid claim to her, and he's serious about defending it. The Marines in the room now stand against the far wall, having been driven there by succesive glares from the dark-eyed, thin-lipped Japanese Admiral. The long-haired girl is staring at the tabletop in front of her, arms wrapped around her middle.

>>All of the above

Delegate deployment of your assets to Hamp - as a heavy cruiser he has experience with similar sized formations.

Delegate getting a tap and trace set up to Naka - liaison work is part of her role.

That frees you up to talk to Shiguire - who I suspect is trying to figure out how to surrender herself for the 'greater good' given her self-evaluation of her value is probably less than nothing.

>[ ] Call Parker - if they phone you again, you want a goddamned wiretap on it.

As tempting as calling up our fleet is...
Willie will probably be around other destroyers and they work in packs
Hamp's already here
Arizona's pretty self-sufficient as-is
Hornet still can't summon her fit-out last we checked
Harder is a fucking submarine he's just along for the ride in case of land attack
Sammy is Sammy

Also we've kicked the Shigure can enough and had other people kick it enough that it's landed firmly in the hands of somebody far better qualified than us to handle it

Unless I'm misunderstanding what that option is meant to mean

To clarify my recommendation here - I assume we'll tag team Shiguire with Goto so between the two of us we have a decent chance to get through to her without fucking up. I don't think we should leave this hanging, as otherwise we might find it half way through the coming fight (assuming a fight happens) that she's gone off to surrender herself. I'd rather deal with this shit now than potentially lose people trying to save her later if she does something stupid - especially since that would just make her feel even more like shit.

Honestly, if the Shigure option wins, I'm half expecting a three for three on the "Oh God, things got hellishly worse."

Let's leave Goto to handle her.

Goto can't play nursemaid and fight this battle at the same time -- and we can't command the JSDF elements unless we've done a lot of off-screen work familiarizing ourselves with the defensive plan for the base.

While I am sorely tempted to just ignore Shigure for fear of making a mess - everything we know about her suggests she is not going to react well to everyone going to fight and perhaps die rather than turning her over to the Abyssals. Do we risk leaving this to blow up on us later?

No, she just said we had a boat that belonged to them.

>>
>>44905816
Terror did indeed, they don't want Naka, for whatever reason, they want Shigure.

Wait a second.
Why are we assuming the abyssals were being truthful about their objective? They seemed more hung up over Naka than Shigure - What if this is just a distraction? Tell everyone OoOoOh watch out were coming for Shigure - than strike at a different target while we circle the wagons around her?

Goto's eyes darken like white-hot steel plunged into the cold embrace of the quenching bath.

“It has come to my attention that you have one of my ships prisoner. You have one hour to decide if you are willing to negotiate for the release of the IJN Shigure.”

You dig out your smartphone and unlock it, ignoring the multiple new text messages to scroll through your contact list and pick out Chief Parker. He answers on the third ring.

“Parker.”

“It's Settle.”


“Settle,” he says. His voice sounds hoarse and haggard. “Need to talk to you.”

“First,” you say, “I want to know if you can trace a signal-”

“Settle, you dumb fuck,” Parker growls, “that microwave mast in the middle of the base has more ELINT detectors on it than half the E-2 fleet. We've got a JSDF AWACS bird flying south and an E-2 out of Atsugi heading north to triangulate the signal. You think you've got to micromanage that?”

“-uh-”

“Nevermind that,” Parker says. “I find'em, you fuck'em, so get your fucker ready.”

The connection drops as Parker hangs up.

You're still staring at the phone when it rings again. You pick up

“Sorry,” Parker says. “Forgot...”

“Forgot?”

“The signal, Settle. The one Weiss found. We went and rented a bunch of data centers in Tokyo - took them from someone else, I think - ran the SOSUS data right through them, crunching. Had... two thousand probables, whittled that down to eight-hundred or so, we've been going through those-”

“Parker,” you say. “Focus. What did you find?”

“I know where they're going to attack next.”

It shouldn't cause a significant delay, and since Goto's the senior officer here, this falls under the title "Shit Goto Needs To Know ASAP". In addition, making the report in person should make it much more difficult for the Abyssals to catch on if they're trying to wiretap US.

Even if we don't think shigure is their real target, we have good reason to believe an attack is immanent. Time is of the essence.

We can secure a cell phone about as well as an STU - but I don't know if we've done that. If our phone is capable (which it should be) we can just tell Parker to go fully secure - and then tell us.

If we're not secure we might tip off the bad guys that we know their target and they'll switch it up. More importantly, we'd be giving away that we've cracked their acoustic signatures -- sources and methods is NOT something we want to give up ... especially ones this important. The Abyssals we've seen so far predate SOSUS. They may not even know that it exists - I'd rather not tip them off.

On second thought, if they can intercept the phones then Parker's already given away too much. They'd know that we know the target of their attack, and how we got that info. So there's not much pint in worrying about OPSEC now. More importantly, if they intercepted the call they might try to whack PARKER before we get to him. So I vote for asking him now upon reflection.

They have proven themselves able to disappear without a trace rather handily. If they abort we're unable to take decisive action and Parker mentioned 800-2000 possibles?

You know, it's awfully weird that Naka talks with her abyssal self so much and said abyssal self is absurdly powerful and can innately command any other shipgirl... got a crazy theory bout that... but we should see if Shigure sees her abyssal self too. If so, theory ain't true.

>>44908179
Given Planefag's pace (no bully), that'll take a while; especially when he should get to the next action sequence because there's been nothing but talking for months (full bully).

So I'd rather have Secret Squirrel writeups reveal a part of the mystery (with Batlead), and then pass that info on to Settle who says "okay, that's neat, but I really need to get back to fucking up my relationship with Arizona" and then we all move on to the next soap opera plot point.

But, in the meantime, we get fun antics with fairies or tiny jet fighter pilots.

Adrenaline races through your body at Parker's words. “Chief, stay right where you are. I'm sending Hamp to escort you to me.”

“Your phone's secure, isn't it?”

“Considering what Abyssals are capable of, that doesn't mean shit, does it?”

There's a grunt of agreement. “I'll be here.”

You hang up. “Hamp, urgent assignment.”

“More urgent than being your bodyguard?”

“YES.”

Hamp blinks.

“Thomas can boil my balls in butter if he wants - I need Chief Parker here, and I need him here NOW.” You proceed to describe the location of Parker's office.

“That's halfway across base, isn't it?”

“Ask me if I give a shit. You've got permission to commandeer a veh-”

“WOOP,” Hamp declares, springing to his feet without using his hands. He drains his Starbucks in one long go, tosses the empty cup over his shoulder and charges out the door.

You take the time to leave the room and walk down the hall to “your” CIC, which is currently screening Iwo Jima Two - Abyssal Boogaloo. F-18s and Corsairs are choking the skies over Iwo, already crowded with towering smoke columns where successive air and gun strikes have plastered enemy positions. Helicopters are ferrying in Marines and taking off with tired-looking men in JGSDF camo - it looks like a substantial portion of the garrison survived, in one form or another. Another feed shows a Marine handing M-16s - A2s, from the look of it - out of a crate to Japanese soldiers as they trade in their battered and empty Howa 89s. One by one they move down the line to accept a cloth bandoleer of magazines and a fresh canteen, then turn to trudge back towards the fighting.

Admiral Thomas spots you in the corner and nods. You stride over to converse. “Sir. How's it going?”

“Steadily,” he replies. “The ROKs have worked their way into Surabachi - they can hear one hell of a firefight going on in the tunnels under the mountain, they just don't know between who.”

“Seems they intend to find out.”

“Bet your ass.” Thomas rubs his face and shakes his head briefly - it doesn't look like he's had much sleep of late. “Force commander keeps trying to switch radio channels, but Essex just finds them again.”

“Modern encrypted radios?”

“Hmm.” Thomas smirks a bit. “I think the LHD is giving her a running commentary via signal lamp, personally. Every time we put a drone camera on them, Essex goes quiet for a bit.”

“They're playing favorites?”

“Sure. She's kind of 'their' ship, if you think about it.” Thomas smiles a little... but it soon fades as the Global Hawk cameras keep panning over the smoking, charred ruins of Iwo Jima. You take your leave quietly and return to Goto's impromptu office. You almost run into Hamp and Parker as they barrel through the door.

“Chief,” you say.

Parker doesn't bother to salute. The dark circles under his eyes, stubble on his chin and unbuttoned collar on his shirt tell you everything - he's been working for twenty-four hours straight - maybe even forty-eight. “Over here.” He grabs your sleeve and pulls you into a corner.

“He's been acting really strange,” Hamp says, sounding a bit put out. “Didn't even blink when we took a curb at thirty.”

“Done worse,” Parker croaks.

“And the hedges.”

“Much worse.”

Hamp frowns a bit. He's got a new cup, a big plastic travel mug, and he's holding a small container of powdered creamer. He upends it over his mug, shaking it vigorously.

“Settle. The signal we heard... we didn't tell anybody what it *was.*”

“Well what the hell was it?” you snap.

“Their voices,” he whispers.

Your heart sinks into your stomach, an awful, dreamy sense of detachment stealing over your senses.

“Their god damned voices,” Parker whispers again - and you realize its not work keeping him from sleep. “And... and even-”

“What!?”

Parker closes his eyes and huffs. “Nevermind that, the point is - we correlated the SOSUS recordings with satellite data on civilian ship tracks, and found a god damned gaggle of signatures in the middle of the Indian ocean.”

You swallow. “What do they sound like?”

Parker fixes his hollow eyes on you - and holds up his phone, plugged into a pair of earbuds.

You tighten your fist as your stomach turns sour - and nod. He pushes them into your ear and taps “play.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0PvZGVPiJU

Steady tones; low moans, roll and ride through your head and down your body, a sonorous, almost soothing hymn. You feel the very fiber of your being vibrating in time with the deep harmonics that seem to thrum deep within, the steady pulse of the drum only your own heartbeat-

“FUCK!” you snap, yanking the earbuds out. Parker is watching you unblinkingly, sad knowledge on his face. He just nods.

“Now... the other. We had a hard time ranging those chants, because the SOUSUS is concentrated around geographic choke points, on the continental shelf, where you can anchor the arrays... which is how we picked up this next one.”

He watches you, wide, staring eyes pinning you to the wall till you pick up the earbuds in shaking hands and pop them back in.

Drums. Just drums, thundering and rumbling, too low and too slow, their cadence clashing on occasion. There are no snares, no smaller drums, no rimshots, no pauses, and almost no variation in the steady, rolling thunder. It sounds distorted somehow - sluggish compared to what it once was. But there is a patient and terrible resolve in the thundering beats that chills you to the core for no reason you can name.

You tug the earbuds out. “Where the hell did this come from?”

“The new array off Sangiang. It was set up to catch anything that slipped past the Panaitan array - Krakatau's acting up again and the mini-quakes are swamping out a lot of data. All the islands... the shallow seafloor... the sounds bounce. Especially low-frequency, like this. But somewhere between Java and Sumatra, for certain.”

“What are you telling me, Parker?”

“At least one of these have to be abyssal, sir. But I'll be damned if I know which ones.”

You stare at the headphones in your hands, the terrifying underwater songs still echoing around your soul.

The first is a morning song, probably them communicating what happened to whatever they communicate before. And swearing revenge.

The second is easy. That's... that's a fucking rowing beat. They're moving somewhere, perhaps Australia, and they're moving there in force.

My guess is the first one is like a war chant, while the second one is to coordinate movements, like drums were used in rowing navies and on land to coordinate large phalanxes.

>[ ] Work this out yourself - this is precisely the kind of shit you don't need her listening to, especially not after that one-foot-in-the-deep speech she gave you.
Try playing it at higher speed. It may well be recognizable cadences if you speed it up so it doesn't feel sluggish any more.

The second one might be a call for summoning? Whether or not it's summoning a ship-girl or Abyssals is up for debate. But I'm going to guess, judging by the position and the fact that they are drums that we might encounter British ships as HMS Repulse and Prince of Wales were sunk there.

Not a trireme, not in this part of the world. If anything, it would be the Korean Fleet that was lost by that idiot, Won Kyon during the Imjin War.

Second one is a bunch of war drums. Judging from the beat they are using
They aren't using it to keep time while marching.

This sounds like the kind of sound you make once you complete a encirclement for a siege and you don't want the defenders getting rest.

Or that they are more or less doing a come get some routine between two armies.
>>
>>44908847
>[ ] Write-in: guess the purpose of each song, and their meaning. Sailors sang for many reasons, and entertainment was the least of them.

The war drum are definitely fucking war drums, there's no doubt about that one. Someone's marching to war... but who? Sure, probably Abyssals, but something doesn't seem quite right about it. About either of them, really. Not really eldritch-y and unfathomable horror-y. For all we know it could be the British Navy and Vikings rousing themselves to the defense of their fellow man.
>>
>>44908954

So the first one is soothing and apparently started 'persuading' Settle. If I had to guess I'd say they were trying to work their magic on someone or something, like the thing with Naka's songs. Maybe some sort of summon?

The second one I dunno.

The only superstition I am aware of for sailors is the Siren Song that lead sailors astray. The 'soothing hymn' is probably the Abyssals while the 'low and slow clashing cadence' is probably the volcano.
>>
>>44908847
>[ ] Write-in: guess the purpose of each song, and their meaning. Sailors sang for many reasons, and entertainment was the least of them.

The first one sounds like a funeral dirge, but listen to the words more carefully.

>You become free from the bonds that binds you!
>You are free from the bonds that bound you!"

They're not singing a ship to death, they're welcoming another warship into their ranks. Another ship has turned its back on mankind and joined up with the forces of the deep.

The second song's beating to quarters. Ships are sprinting in ragged formation, they're going somewhere, and they're going there flat out.
>>
>>44908896
Helvegen is a dirge/death chant, so that's either
>someone sank
or
>calling those who sank in the past, join us

The drums is probably like drums were used for in the past: communications

If I had to guess, the first is like a recruitment beacon and the second is more tactical/military in nature
>>
>>44908943
Maybe, but the fact that it IS sluggish could also be a clue.
I think it might actually be a summoning song- their forces are still groggy, still waking up, hence why the beat is still sluggish

One of the wendigo-boats could pop up, launch a few rounds off at the base, and submerge again before strike craft vector in on her.

Hell, those bomb-ships could literally recreate something like the Battle of Britain - pop up every now and then, escorted by a screen of weak, otherwise useless ships, fire off a few rounds at the base, then retreat while the escort screen potentially sacrifices themselves so as to prevent the wendigo-boat's death.

Sure, they may lose a few destroyers - but if they hit the carrier, the CIC, the radar tower, or the barracks...
>>
>>44909021
If it's the fleet Admiral Yi built and commanded and then was lost under Won Kyon, the Japanese are FUCKED. Do you even know what Admiral Yi's achievements were? He NEVER lost a battle, and he had no experience as a naval commander prior to the Imjin war. Plus, his ships were far superior to the Japanese ships, who were basically armed transports. If it is that fleet, I reiterate, the Japanese are FUCKED.

Wait a second. Norse song. Could this be the hymn of the Lonely Queen of the North herself?

So, drums and horns were used to coordinate armies, send signals, and such. If the Abyssals are communicating through Whale-Speak, can't we hijack the Whale-Speak and flood the waters with junk orders?

>>44909100
EXACTLY! Essentially, during the Imjin war, the Japanese brought a knife to a gun fight. It's part of why Yi was able to sink over half their fleet in any given engagement while sustaining almost no casualties and no ships sunk on his side.

These two. They're welcoming someone new, and they're running somewhere hard.

Didn't Planefag say we'd be seeing an Aussie ship return soon?

When did he say they'd be returning on our side?
>>
>>44909137
While it is depressing that they can recover losses, it is heartening to learn that they have some form of logistics.
>>
It's too irregular to be a rowing beat.
>>
>>44909057
That was actually my first guess for the first one. It sounded more like a sad call to arms for me. Probably mustering for some sort of follow up attack to whatever is about to hit next.
>>
>>44909170
If it is, I'm guessing HMAS Armidale.
>>
>>44908847
>[ ] Write-in

The first is either a recruiting call or is intended to wake any inactive Abyssals.

The second probably serves to direct the Abyssal fleets.

Not rowing, but still a march of sorts, or a call to arms. They're planning something. War drums is probably where the hammer's gonna fall.
