I was thinking of something along the lines of a really long saga between abyssals, ship girls and humanity. Something really epic that uses the concepts of grudges and objectives.

- I might actually think of something but I'll need help with this. Can I put up some snippets (haven't written them yet) and ask for a bit of help?

I might even...end up doing it differently from the TV series, but I'll need the time to put the ideas to text before anything else. I'm thinking of making it standalone, kind-of-sort-of meta (EG the ships are actually characters in a game--but not the kancolle browser game as we know it), but not sure if that will fly (or float). Will try to write somethign, hopefully will have better luck with that.

Something like that would require knowledge of at least a few divisions and squadrons (if not at least one fleet for the Japanese) and then par it against some variant of an American or other Allied Task Force. Fifth Carrier Division ran into Task Force 16 a lot. That being Shokaku and Zuikaku running into USS Enterprise and her escorts (a few heavy cruisers, maybe a light crusier, and a half dozen or so destroyers) across 1942 up to 1944 (after a fashion).

Those are generally left up to you at the moment. There presently are no Allied (American, British, French, or Dutch) ships in the game, just Japanese and a few German (though that may change in the next few months). So relationships and reactions of the shipgirls to their American counterparts is unknown.

Generally it is thought that the setting is modern or modern like. Some could see it as an alternate universe 1942-45, but the shipgirls, at least some of them, seem to have some memory of what happened to them as ships, or the spirits they represent.

Anyone here read Hieda no Akyuu's Ambience series of fics?

He's got two of them up, Ambience: Platoon (Moebius Four) and Ambience: A Fleet Symphony

In both stories, in the wake of 9/11, the US Navy, in collaboration with their Japanese allies, begin developing naval weapon platforms that were compact, like the size of a human. Essentially ship-girls. However, both of these fics are alternate universes of each other.

Platoon Moebius 4 is a diary of a USN Commander sent to Okinawa and tasked with commanding the fleet of ship-girls, which in this fic were made for the JMSDF, and essentially takes place in our 2014.

Fleet Symphony, however, is an alternate universe, where the project was rudely interrupted when the US and Iran started chucking nukes at each other in this universe's year 2010. In addition the project was developed by the USN, FOR the USN, and a handful of the girls never made it to their final destination when the bombs fell. The story opens, in 2029, with a post-war-born waste-lander having found a lead to where one of the girls were kept, leading him to a basement in the ruined suburbs of Houston, Texas, and comes face to face with Murakumo

I actually found Fleet Symphony to a very gritty spin on the franchise, despite verging into uncharted territory. Seeing the ship-girls fight as both conventional infantry, and then quickly switching to their naval roles was quite interesting too.

What we need...IS MORE CROSSING WITH ARPEGGIO! Boy, those potentially have so much fun.

In relation, I though of an antagonist fleet for both series I called the Cross. Controversially, they're American using weapons to counter out the Fog and ship girls. The drive is how America was utterly humiliated when they, the considered mightiest navy and air forces were wiped out their respective Army/Marines were cut from their homeland. purpose to reclaim and reconnect the seas and world they once lost.

Because they're based off of American ships, they'd be Hero Killers. For those with Mental Models, they're made of adult fanservicey women rather than young moe girls.

A fanfiction story with Allied shipgirls. The question would be if they crossed over with their Axis counterparts, or if they are "trapped" in their own version of events againts the Abyssal threat. If they are trapped, than the reader might assume the Abyssal are allussions to the Japanese ships (if only in the Pacific), but there versions of certain boss types would start to resemble Allied ships lost in those event battles, rather than the Japanese ships. Allied shipgirl events might not be the same events the Japanese shipgirls are faced with, or the tale it different for them. A lot of Events in the game are allusions to battles. There are two sides to every battle. A winner and a loser. Though sometimes you can be both. (Win a battle, but fail the objective. Jutland is this. The Germans won that battle based on ships sunk, but lost the objective because they still could not sail freely of the Royal Navy blockade).

Allied events would be tragic for 1942, and into 1943 it there would still be some instances of loses, but by the allusions of 1944 and 1945, the Allied shipgirl numbers are such that tragic level events are rare. The only major one I can think of in 1944 was is actually a moment of heroism and an Allied victory (Samar). Taffy 3 was overwhelmed yet basically defeated the Central Force of the Japanese Navy just by shear deturmination, courage, and I suppose psycological warfare (hundreds of planes and destroyers that charged battleships would be enough to scare even an admiral. And is this case it was a Admiral that had lost his flagship earlier and didn't want to have another one sunk out from under him that day).

But if those Abyssal are to be Allied ships lost facing the Allied shipgirls. Yorktown would be the one at Midway. Arizona at Pearl. Prince of Wales and Repulse at Singapore. Four heavy Cruiser Hime at Savo. Destroyer Hime and Escort Carrier Oni and Destroyer Escort Oni at Leyte. And no torpedo cruisers.

USS Fletcher was the first of her class, commisioned less than a month after the Battle of Midway. She made it into action just in time for the Battle of Guadacanal against Hiei and Yuudachi. A month later she was denied permission to fire torpedoes at the Battle of Tassafaronga for five minutes due to the Admiral thinking the Japanese were too far away. The target ship was the Yugumo-class destroyer Takanami, who was sunk by gunfire later that night. Fletcher later rescued survivors from USS Northampton.

In 1943, Fletcher sank the submarine I-18. She later escorted the carrier groups during invasions.

In 1944, Fletcher was used to partrol for submarine and support invasions with shore bombardment duties. She escorted the invasion forces to Leyte, but left the area before the Japanese fleets arrived, thus missing the Battle of Leyte Gulf. She most of the rest of the war supporting actions around the Philippines.


Post-war, Fletcher was rebuilt for more anti-submarine work and reclassified as a Destroyer Escort. She served in Korea, and spent most of her career in the Pacific until decommissioned in 1969. She outlived Yukikaze by only a few years. Fletcher was sold for scrap in 1972.

Rear Admiral Nora W. Tyson, commanding officer of Carrier Strike Group Two from 2010 - 2012. First woman to command a US Carrier Strike Group. This was the carrier USS George H.W. Bush's first deployment.

I'm going to recommend The Greatest Generation by sasahara17, which is on ff.net atm.

Basically, a USN intelligence officer goes to Japan to learn more about kanmusu and figure out what's the deal with the Abyssals... but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Seconding this recommendation. It actually became so popular that the people working on the Pacific doujins recommend it as a must-read.

*****

For something else, here's some short crack I wrote, no idea how it came about:

Quote:
"Commander, here's the reports- Commander?"

Akatsuki released an indignant pout at the empty office, her person of interest nowhere in sight.

"How rude! Telling me to come here then standing me up!"

As she walked over to the Admiral's desk to leave the sheaf of papers she carried with her hand she became aware of a very delectable smell that tickled her nose. A pleasantly burnt aroma, that smelled like...

"Coffee?"

Indeed, there was a cup on the table with the inky-black steaming hot beverage on the table, neatly prepared by the edge of the desk facing towards the door - the usual courtesy he gave to the shipgirls who came into his office. Akatsuki couldn't suppress the smile on her face even as she tried to look indifferent.

"Hmph! Preparing a treat for me, he shouldn't think this makes up for his in... in... inpro-", she coughed into her hand, "absence!"

Documents now firmly on the table, she held the prepared cup with both hands, savoring its smell as she blew on it. Truth to be told, Akatsuki did feel some trepidation as to the Admiral's choice of drink to serve today: he never served coffee before, only tea (she tried it once and didn't like it... only because the teas wasn't to her standard, honest!), warm milk ("Commander, I'm not a child!"), or hot chocolate ("Commander's the best!"). The alluring smell wafted over her nose, promising sweet temptations to Akatsuki's tongue. She paused.

But isn't coffee bitter? she rightfully thought, having heard the stories from her fellow shipgirls.

Then again, she was an elephant lady wasn't she? True, adult ladies should be able to drink coffee!

She breathed deeply, face scrunching as though bracing for a life-changing decision, with one last look at the concoction brought the cup to her lips, then carefully took a sip of the now lukewarm drink.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm-

It...

"IT'S DELICIOUS!"

It wasn't bitter at all like she expected, in fact it was very sweet, and slightly chocolatey too! Eyes wide with amazement, she drank faster now, her newfound ambrosia giving her tongue warm, silky pleasures as she savored it.

"Those guys, trying to scare me like that! It's not bitter at all!"

First thing she'll do after finishing this delectable cup of coffee was correct her sisters and Tenryuu on what coffee actual-

Why's it so hot here all of a sudden? And why do I feel... so... drowsy-

To her credit, despite the sudden onset of lethargy that came upon her Akatsuki had the presence of mind to put the cup down on the table, before she hit the ground with a nice view of the whirling ceiling fan above her. One spoken thought crossed her mind before darkness took her:

"So this is... coffee..."

**********

He kneaded his shoulders a bit, rotating them a bit to get some nice, satisfying cracks out of his joints. While the Admiral wouldn't say that he was an extremely busy man, he still had to do a lot of work to keep the base running, in this case keeping the supply acquisition paperwork in order. He had gone out to personally get some of the forms from the acquisitions department, and now he stood in front of the door to his office.

"I can finally try it..." he smiled with expectation, promises of the best drink he'll ever have putting him in a happy place, before he shook his head to remind him that he could do that inside his office.

He had mail-ordered this stuff he heard about from some friends called "Black Blood of the Earth", a coffee that supposedly contained 40x the amount of caffeine of a single coffee, which for the kind of job that this Admiral did was absolutely perfect - after a while, the usual coffees no longer did anything to his alertness, so having what amounted to the Godzilla of coffees was just what he needed to stay awake during long, boring nights with all the paperwork.

His friends had also shipped him a bottle of real Russian Vodka, saying that he spike the coffee with it for the best flavor. Given what he heard about Vodka from Hibiki - he was sure she only had second-hand knowledge of its effects, or he'd have some stern words with the destroyer shipgirl - he couldn't wait to try out the combination that would keep him wide awake and working even through the most mind-numbing of jobs.

The sudden summons from the acquisitions department had interrupted his first taste of the concoction, which he had left on his desk in a hurry, but now nothing can get between him and his coffee!

"Oh, Commander. A pleasant afternoon to you~"

The female voice that greeted him inside was smooth as velvet, filled with a raw sensuality that the Admiral had never before had the pleasure of being exposed to in his entire life.

Then he saw who had greeted him and his thought processes ground to a halt.

"Akatsuki?!"

The young destroyer girl giggled with a demure charm he had never seen from her, her crystal-clear laughter like honey to his ears.

"Ara, you seem surprised to see me Commander. Were we not supposed to meet at this hour? Should we meet later tonight maybe?" she smiled amusingly, her eyes reflecting her humor. "Ara"? Since when did she say stuff like that?!

"N-No, it's not that..."

She was sitting on one of the chairs, back straight, legs crossed like those businesswomen he had met before. On her left hand was a ceramic saucer, and on her right she gingerly held up a cup with two fingers as she took a sip out of-

Wait a minute-

"Akatsuki, that's my cup."

Of all the responses he was expecting, he didn't expect her to gently put the cup down on the saucer, meet his gaze, and then lick her lips.

"Indeed it is, Commander~" her thin smile and piercing eyes made him feel like a deer being stared down by a lion as she put away the tableware. "It was most delectable coffee..."

With grace and poise he knew only supermodels should possess, Akatsuki stood up, ran a hand through her hair to brush it aside with flourish, strutted towards him, and with a deft touch slowly ran a finger down his chest. With a tiptoe, she whispered by his ear in that silky siren's voice:

"... and now, it's time for dessert~"

Japanese men have always been taught to stand their ground, and face danger bravely and honorably even if it cost them their lives.

The Commander was not that Japanese though.

"IrememberedIhavesomethingtodogoodworkAkatsuki !"

He broke many land speed records on his escape that day as his brain was consumed by a single thought:

What the hell just happened?!?!!

**********

The office was empty once more, save for its lone female occupant, who simply giggled at the actions of the man who was once there. She put a finger on her lips, cocking her head sideways with a determined gleam in her eyes.

"I'll give you a headstart Commander, but know you can't escape from me~" the lilt in her voice bordering on feral. "But first,", she walked over to the table, and once again gingerly took the saucer and cup in her hands. "...a lady never wastes her drink."
