But seriously: Watch a bit of Moonlighting, and tell me that dynamic doesn't work with yuuya and Yui?

I have never seen Moonlighting. Evidently, I must correct this.

It's one of those 80's shows that defined a generation. Also noted for being THE show that made Bruce Willis a recognizable name.

Quote:
a mix of mystery, sharp dialogue, and sexual tension between its two leads,
(looks at Yuuya and Yui)

...right.


By the way, this has completely derailed my train of thought with my fic writing. Arrrgh.

- Sweet Jesus, if Walken was POTUS, nearly all the political problems between the US and the rest of the world would be 75-85% solved by the time Takeru turned up!

No, No, NO! Focus on finishing Muv Luv Comet then you can make the other fanfics.

I prefer President Bartlet. That man will verbal smackdown, shamed and owned all those selfish leaders in that world.

This part didn't work out entirely as planned, mainly because it's hard to put the feel of the scene in writing. The next part will contain the interesting stuff, I promise.

Quote:
This room is too clean.

Elle remained at attention. Even if she was ordered to relax, something about the place kept her tense.

Clinical White tile floor, white walls. Beige plastic tables and plastic chairs. Harsh fluorescent lighting. Only two dark colours were present in the room. One was the silhouette black image of a bandit wearing a fedora hat. Burkhart assumed it was the squadron mascot.

The other darkness of note was sitting right before her. A grey-haired balding man wearing the black-and-teal pressed uniform of the United Nations Army. The cheap plastic chair seemed at odds with his more formal wear and the Colonel's bars visible on his shoulder. A smile was on his lips, one that Elle noticed did not change as he read through an old-fashioned file folder.

"You have a question, Lieutenant?"

"Sir." The image of the dead TSF pilot still haunted her, but Burkhart chose her words carefully. " I received urgent orders to report here. But what is HERE, exactly?"

"Your duty is to obey orders. My option is whether or not I need to explain them." The Colonel's irritated voice did not match his smile.

Elle did not respond immediately, as a young man in formal white attire wheeled in a serving cart. The smell of cooked meat accompanied his stride. He did not acknowledge Elle's presence, stopping only beside Wilkes' table to open the cart's contents. A plate of steak and vegetables was placed before the Colonel, followed by utensils and cutlery.

The older man nodded. Without another word, the cart and its driver silently left the room.

The Colonel turned from the meal to her. "Lunch?"

"No thank you, sir." Elle realized she would not get a straightforward answer, at least not from her new Commanding Officer (CO).

"I assume your service with the krauts went well?"

"Yes sir." Elle replied. She knew very little of this Colonel Wilkes. Whether or not she agreed with his biases was no real matter to her job.

"I try to get to know my subordinates, Lieutenant. I want us all to be on the same page, same happy family." Col. Wilkes spoke without meeting her gaze, smile frozen on his face. "Can't say I've worked with an Ozzie before. So, tell me about yourself. Stuff I haven't already read in your file."

"The only thing not already on my file was my recent assignment."

"Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) flight with the Kraut 66th Armoured." Wilkes did not stop smiling. The disturbing fixed smile also masked whatever emotions the Colonel might have had. "How many krauts did you send home in body bags?"

Elle stiffened. The Colonel's frozen smile unnerved her, though she tried not to let it show.

"None, sir."

"Well, that's a damn shame." The Colonel attacked his steak with a knife, as if he was killing the animal on the spot. Synthetic meat didn't bleed like that. And the fixed smile made it look all the more unnerving. As if answering her thoughts: "Real Grade-A beef from Oregon. Sure you don't want any?"

"No sir." She had no idea what sort of connections the Colonel had, in order to get real meat in this day and age.

"Do you have any INTELLIGENT questions, Lieutenant?"

"My assignment, sir."

Wilkes looked at her, and for once the fixed smile seemed genuine. Which made it look all the more sinister.

"Why aren't you a TSF pilot, Lieutenant Burkhart?"

"Sir." Elle's heart stopped a second, and she hoped Wilkes didn't notice her face turning pale. "The Royal Australian Armed Forces CSAR team had an opening for an Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV) pilot. I took it."

"UCAV pilots don't see much combat." The Colonel pronounced it 'YOU-KAHV'. A pause as he chewed on a hearty bite of steak. "Are you afraid of combat, Burkhart?"

"No sir." Elle nodded. "I'm afraid of people dying when they don't have to."

"Psh." Wilkes stifled a laugh. With that, he set down his utensils to focus his cold stare at Elle. "Your assignment is to fly chase for two of the TSFs on my project."

"Chase planes, sir?" Burkhart wondered aloud. Chase planes were basically observers, like TSFs or aircraft making video recordings of performance. A UCAV pilot to be assigned as one was overkill. "Automated drones can do that. Or other TSFs."

"It's not the machines I want you to monitor, it's the pilots."

Elle was further puzzled. "Not sure I follow, sir."

"Mental alertness. Stress. Any sort of insecurity." Wilkes went back to his steak, cutting it anew. "I would like to make sure my TSF pilots are up to scratch."

"Sir." Elle couldn't help the sarcasm creeping in her voice. "I'm a pilot, not a psychiatrist."

"I know what I ordered, Lieutenant." Another bite of steak. "I ordered someone who can do their damn job."

Burkhart shut up. The bandit logo on the wall seemed to mock her.

"Make your own introductions to the crews. Talk to crew boss in the hangar, he'll get you up to speed." Wilkes was now fully focused on his meal. "Door to your right, walk down the stairs. Do it now."

Elle's heels snapped together. "Yes sir."

"Eat or be eaten, Lieutenant." The Colonel's eternal smile flashed teeth as he waved the knife at her. "Remember that."

Burkhart saluted, and did not look back.

Not even when Wilkes finally gave his greeting.

"Welcome to the Pit, Lieutenant."
...Also, because it should be obvious but apparently isn't--yes, the Colonel is modeled after Jack Nicholson.

I can always make Agent Harbinger and his Happy Fun Time squad work their magic and move on~

But that would be too simple. Also, Ball's in Goose's court for the time being. Meanwhile however, a forum on ff.net for Comet discussion is up and running.

And Yuuya's from Alabama now. Man, I'm evil.

@wavehawk:

Yeah, that was...disturbing. Sufficiently disturbing. *Especially* the beef part.

- If it's sufficient, then it's passable. I still feel it could be done better, but it was a pain to write this section without me BECOMING Colonel Wilkes.

I'll try to finish the next bit by Sunday or Monday night, but no promises.

Incidentally, just a heads up: the guy who writes Eishi of Zero showed up on Spacebattles seeking help. I've directed him here since I'm kinda not in a good position to render assistance.

Be kind to him - his mistakes seem mostly from ignorance (hasn't played the games yet, due to living with parents), unlike a certain other person we all know.

So yeah, sammy, if you see this, post away.

Also, I'll be happy to share what I know with other authors. If they're being reasonable about it.

At here. We've been repeatedly telling him he needs to stop and understand the setting first, then continue.

...he actually asked, in innocent ignorance, if it were possible for silicon-based life to exist in the world of Muv-Luv.

- Or at least he should check out the Muv-Luv Wiki. Or these threads. Or, I dunno, just do a bit more research before writing something.

When English Teachers tell you to "Write what you know", they mean: "take time to learn about what it is you're going to write", not "Write ONLY what you know". (...and this is why I'm going psycho writign my fic--double- and triple-checking that what I'm writing makes sense in context of the world I'm writing it in...)

Quote:

- Definitely tell him to read this thread first. I think we've already covered MOST possibilities for Silicon-based life in Muv-Luv Alt that weren't already explicitly stated in the VNs/supplementary material/playthroughs...

Not final. It feels like I'm chopping a tree with a blunt axe here.
