KANT-O-CELLE QUEST: CAN'T SHACKLE THE SHIGURE

You open your mouth to greet the huddled girl, only to realize you've nothing to say. Even a standard polite greeting would ring hollow in your ears, spoken through massive steel bars to echo around a cold concrete cell.

You glance back at the two guards, and they nod slightly, sidestepping just far enough that they're out of direct sight - but only a few steps away, should they be needed. You stand by the doors to the cell and wait quietly, leaning on your cane.

It takes the better part of a half-hour before she bothers to look up. You feel the hair rise on the back of your neck as she sizes you up with one baleful eye glistening slightly in the shadow - seems she's been crying.

Another eternity stretches between you. You stand stock still, focusing on a patch of concrete to her side.

Waiting.

“... what do you want?”

At last, the quiet question, drifting through the chilly space between you.

“To listen.”

You see her eyes circle the cold little cell and return to you. “How generous.”

You sigh, but hold your tongue.

“What are you waiting for?” she says sullenly. “Just kill me.”

“Couldn't you do that yourself?”
>>
She raises her arms, showing you the heavy chains shackled to her slender wrists. You follow them to their anchor points in the floor, concrete dust still surrounding the recently installed inch-thick eyebolts placed at the far corners of the cell. The eyebolts are wired to heavy-duty cables that snake under a fresh mouse-hole in the wall. “Enough voltage to send my main breakers into series, I guess. Even if I've got my Outfit on.” She draws her arms around her legs again and hugs them tight, glaring at you over her knees. “I'm not going back out. I'm never going back out. And if you let me out-” she sighs. “Just kill me.”

“How?”

She glowers at you. “Same way you killed my sisters. You killed all of us, eventually.”

“That war's o-”

“No its not!” she snaps, slamming her fist into the floor with a sharp CRACK that makes her chains rattle. “All those girls I led to death? You think THEY forgive me?” She grabs her head and claws at it. “Its happening again. It's all happening again.”

You feel a chill race down your spine. Haruna said the same thing an hour ago. “It couldn't be more different-”

“It's no different,” Shigure says, the resignation in her voice weighing heavy in the air. “Everyone with me always gets hurt. Every time.” She seems to crumple, squeezing herself into an even tighter ball, her words muffled against her legs. “We were saved by a Divine Wind, remember? We h-had h-heaven on our s-side...” Her clawed fingers rip their way down her skull, pulling out strands of long black hair. “And th-then I h-had heavens f-favor w-when e-e-veryone else had lost it, when you w-were c-c-rushing us everywhere - m-mockery, heaven sent, an insult to the Emperor himself-”

She cries, for a while. Quiet sobs fill the cell block, drowning out the muted buzz of the hallway's florescent lighting.

You wait.

Some terrible eternity later, you hear her murmur something.

“... a little louder,” you request quietly.

“Can I... get closer?”

The sounds of the guards behind you bringing their weapons to low ready demonstrates their opinion. You look back at them and raise an eyebrow in query, and they shrug - but keep their weapons up. Your funeral, buddy.

Good enough. “Yeah.” Laying your cane on the floor, you grunt with pain as you struggle to your knees, favoring your bum thigh as much as possible. Kneeling on the floor, you rest your hands on your thighs and nod towards her.

Shigure glances fearfully at her guards, then slowly unfolds herself. Her timid movements are punctuated by glances at the camera in the corner of her cell, as if any sudden movement will result in her being fried crispy by high voltage.

In fact, it probably would.
>>
On her hands and knees, she crawls across the bare concrete floor, her frequent fearful upward glances making her seem like a kicked puppy. The damn chains scrape and drag behind her, their rattling terribly conspicuous as they echo around the quiet cell. Finally she reaches you. You note the shackles are sized so she can't fit them through the narrow gaps between the new, super-thick bars - she can't reach out and grab you even if she wanted to. She rests her shoulder against the bars, drawing her legs up to one side, and sighs.

“I'm sorry,” she whispers. “You're... you're not a bad man, I don't think.” She reaches up to wipe some tears away and flinches as the guards raise their weapons and spread out to either side, guaranteeing a clean shot through the bars and past you. She clutches her hands to her breast again. “I just - I can't. I'm not strong enough, I *can't* live this again.”

You keep your promise and keep silent as she cries some more, still whispering - “-in the water, so many men screaming save me, save men, but-” she wipes at her eyes with the backs of her hands - “they were still *there,* I had to run, I couldn't-!”

More silence.

More tears.

More speech.

“You fought them, didn't you. Personally.”

You nod.

She closes her eyes and leans her head against the bars - here, in the light of the fluorescent lamps, you can see she's a pretty young thing; or would be if she wasn't weeping so much. “Is there... is there any... anything left, in them?”

You think back on the horrible blue radiance you first glimpsed at LA; the instinctive, bone-deep thrill of panic as a circuit somewhere deep in primordial memory was completed. The empty, remorseless eyes of BB-3 as she looked up at the drone feed, looked at *you* - you're sure, now, she knew you were watching - in the final moment before her magazine brewed up. “No, Shigure. They're...” Hatered. Hatred in a humanoid shape, but sure as hell not personified. “... they're just evil. Full stop.” You remember Naka's tearful admission in your office last night, her words about having one foot on the Other Side, and shiver. “Nothing to do with you. *Nothing* like you girls.”

One last tear slips down her cheek as your lie rings hollowly around the cell. “Thank you for trying,” she whispers.

"I'm not done trying yet," you tell her.

She smiles sadly, opening her eyes to look at you - bright blue, their gorgeous hue shimmering prettily as they fill with tears.

"But I am."

The shimmering azure hue of her eyes flares bright like wind-blown embers - and then she rips the bars apart.

Oh, I know it's likely too late. I mean, the odds of a man with a bum leg running fast enough to escape THAT, even with the guards and a nearby armoured vehicle?

I'm actually smiling at this development. It's going to be fun.

>>43531908
Do you really think that the shackles will hold long enough for the guards, shocked at seeing a ship girl turn into an Abyssal, to activate that?

On the other hand, Free Abyssal to experiment containment methods with.

Just remember to tag her BEFORE she gets into the water.
>>
>>43531933
IF you aren't willing to try, you've already failed.

Besides, this could work in our favor. It could prove that we CAN capture abyssals

Not to be too morbid about this, but if she survives... we've got an Abysal to experiment with/on.

In which case, how the hell are we going to kill her? With the pea shooters the guards have on hand? I'm fairly certain we can try talking her down before they manage to bring in the heavy weaponry to actually kill her. And honestly, anything that will kill her will probably result in our death as well, either as collateral damage or from her rampage before they deploy it.

We all said this the first time she went nuts, in the tree. Remember? We thought we lost big time, then fucking CRAB pops up out of nowhere and saves the day (we should probably thank him for that, if begrudgingly).

Things might not end perfectly well, but it won't be as simple as Shigure just dying. That's way too simple for planefag. No, even if everything goes south, there will be much more fuckery involved.

We took the initiative and confronted our most pressing problem first, leaving Shigure to stew while we went to go get help but instead spending three threads talking to destroyers and talking to Goto would have only made the problem worse. if anything, she would have broken out while we were coming back with our backup.

The chains go first; already at full extension, she only needs to grab them and yank to snap them and sever the lethal circuit. The bright sound of face-hardened steel snapping under several hundred tons of pressure is followed by the deafening screech of steel tearing like paper as she swipes the bars out of her way; the locking mechanism on the door rollers shattering far easier than the bars themselves. You get a last glimpse of her eyes from two inches away as her palms slam into your chest -

- and just like that, you're sprawled on the floor, chest aching and ears ringing. The guards are limp and prone beside you, the Barret's long barrel bent at an angle, one huge cartridge casing still rolling away sedately. The commotion down the hall tells you help is on the way - but you don't think it's going to matter.

Shigure is sitting with her back against her cell's wall, out of sight from down the hallway. She's rubbing her hand against a shattered piece of the cell door's edge, the jagged metal squealing like steel on steel as she rubs it. You see her wince and glance at her hand - it's lightly scratched this time, only a trickle of blood coming out.

She reaches out for the closet guard and yanks a fragmentation grenade off his vest. A few bullets crack down the hall and ricochet off the far wall a few times before someone starts screaming like a madman uprange - presumably out of consideration for you and your would-be protectors.

“Can you move?” she asks, turning the grenade around and around in her hands as she studies it.

“Aaahhhuhgh,” you manage.

“It's okay,” she says softly. She reaches out again, grabs one of the guards by his tactical harness and heaves, sending him sliding across the floor several feet. Then she reaches out far enough to grab you by the shirt, and the next thing you know you're sailing across the concrete like a damn curling stone. You're still too stunned to speak, much less move, but you can still see Shigure in the curved security mirror mounted in the middle of the ceiling; another recent addition for guards patrolling the hallway, away from the guard booth and its CCTV screens. She grabs the last guard and tries to heave him down the hallway as well, but this time he barely moves - her shipgirl strength has already faded. Sliding her hands under the man's shoulder, she heaves with all her might and manages to turn him over, placing his armored back to the cell.

Then she walks into the center of her cell, closes her eyes, and pulls the pin.

When I fought the Abyssals that first time, the only reason we got a missile lock was because a Coast Guard cutter rammed one of them. She was cut up bad, but there were still survivors. I saw them, abandoning ship.

Not sure if this is the right thing to say.

Shigure is placing blame on herself. "Everyone with me always gets hurt. Every time." Not sure how pointing out that Settle isn't the best person will help.

I think something more like pointing out that if Shigure kills herself now then she won't have the opportunity to change "Every with me always gets hurt. Every time." into something different. She'll end up letting that be written in history. She needs to be motivated to try to change that herself.

Don't forget Yamato, since without both Settle and Goto she's forced into even more seclusion. Hate goes AWOL and dies hunting Abyssals. Naka simply disappears. Harder goes lonewolf even worse than before. Arizona would probably go on a roaring rampage of rage/despair. Shoukaku becomes the new mute. Willie just quits.

And how the fuck do you think that'll look to the Americans? To the American shipgirls? Hell, to most of the kanmusu?

I'm honestly predicting that the Americans will demand their ships back, given that the Japs don't give a shit about the waste of such important strategic assets. The kanmusu'll go into a tantrum spiral. Japan'll fall to the Abyssals.

Shigure killing herself would fuck pretty much EVERYTHING.

the concussive force behind a frag isn't even enough to kill a person, unless they're directly on top of it. bouncing around a cell isn't going to make it any stronger, since it loses force with each redirection.

there's like 1 pound of explosive (Comp B.) in a Mk67 frag. You can stuff like a lot more in a briefcase.

That's Hate.

>>43533194
Of course we can't save everyone. But we can try. And hasn't that been Settle's character? He'll save whoever he can, even if he has to move mountains. Shit, he SUMMONED Northampton through sheer force of will.

>This isn't some save Shigure or save other people, not both, decision.
It kinda was, yeah.
>>
>>43533266
less than half a pound, actually.
>>
>>43533194
You seem to be confusing "Wanting to try to save everybody" with "Getting mad that we can't save everybody".
I won't be mad if we can't, but I feel like we have to try
>>
>>43533194
And next time something like this happens and we don't do anything, Planefag will tell us that we could have done something.

Better to do something than nothing, anon, because then at least you can say you tried.

I was going off of the fact that inside Hitler's concrete super villain bunker the bomb killed him, but in his regular villain wooden staff building, it didn't.

They do. The problem is that they drag us down with us.

And you need to stop being a bitter, jaded cynic. You do that, I'll gladly take the pain planefag has in store.

Yeah, but that ruins it for the rest of us who actually care.

...Yeah? No shit? You seem to be imagining that wanting to save someone means throwing a fit if you fail.

Even if things go to hell, you must be alright in your heart

Trying something futile doesn't make you a good person, just a stupid one.

Everybody seems to think planefag is gonna write this as some fucking hugbox-chronicles feel good adventure.

I mean really you could use the archive as a proof of concept on psychological studies of white-knight syndrome.
