    @Emerald Acid Even if it was only my girls getting trashed (along with the subtle call-back with Inazuma)?

    Yeah, I wanted to portray the battle more realistically and not as a total curb-stomp, a trap many writers fall into when using original characters (especially ones with any sort of supernatural power-set). I also intentionally left some parts of the battle unsaid, if you want to do your side of it.

    @Observer 39 Yeah, I was thinking of doing a small entry for my side of the combat, before setting up to wrap up the collab, although I've more than certainly enjoyed our little partnership.

    Woot, caught up on this side of the story too. Nice work with the collab and well done battle (both writing and fighting xD ).

    Damn cliffhangers though...

    Part Seventeen: Connections

    The two Admirals and their girls head back towards Fleet Command, the sun sinking lower in the sky. Due to Kuroshio and Hayashimo's injuries (and the general exhaustion of both parties), they decide that an overnight stay was in order. Minato and Emerald each in turn contact their respective bases, with the former getting quite the earful from Murakumo on the matter. The latter's call seem more spirited and relieved, though the young man wasn't privy to who was on the other end. They then go to both recuperate and celebrate the recent victory against the odds alongside their girls.

    As the evening goes on, the conversations that come up mostly center on the Admirals themselves, Iku and Kuroshio's insistence being the primary catalyst. Some of Emerald's previous adventures as a thief, full of heroism, intrigue and close calls. Minato's former job as a information dealer and "keeper of secrets", along with a rudimentary explanation in how he works his odd magic, complete with small demonstrations. How both came to know of the Kanmusu and of their first days as Admirals. Each topic gives rise to more questions, and in turn the discussion evolves and expands. By the time the group decides to go rest for the night, the only lights are of the stars high above.

    Minato sits in the room designated to him, writing in a small notebook with the help of a small orb of light. Notes, bullet points and small pictures line the pages as he puts the day's events down, along with all the information he gathered. He sighs, a smile on his face.

    "An interesting man, Emerald. And his group just as so." Looking back down, he rereads the names that had come up during the long discourse, along with some notes for each:

    [Emerald. Former thief and adventurer. Recruited after an encounter with Nagato and a Ri-class cruiser in a civilian area, rising to current rank after serving in advisory roles. Can manipulate Ki for offense and defense. Underwent body modifications courtesy of Akashi and Yuubari to become equivalent to a DD in terms of damage control, along with on-water mobility. Secretary Ship: Ryuujou. Other known girls at this time: Inazuma, I-19 (Iku), Shimakaze, Naka, Furutaka, Kongou.]

    [Zalfier. "Destroyer specialist" who is rumored to only use that class of ship and achieve favorable results. Another rumor consists of a supposed non-violent interaction with a higher-ranking Abyssal. Further investigation warranted. Secretary Ship: Harusame. Other known girls at this time: Akatsuki, Ikazuchi, Hibiki.]

    ["Mr. Retro". Real name unknown outside a select circle of people. A collector of old knick-knacks and paraphernalia. Other information lacking. Secretary Ship: Amatsukaze. Other known girls at this time: Ashigara.]

    Nodding, he closes the book and taps the orb. It winks out of existence, turning the room just a little darker. More work will come later. For now, I need to rest.


    Morning comes, and the two groups meet once more before setting off back to their home ports. Emerald extends his hand to Minato, who accepts it with a firm grip.

    "Thanks again for everything you did. Here's to an alliance that will last."

    "Of course."

    And with that, the two Admirals and their girls part ways. As Kuroshio takes point ahead of Minato and Hayashimo, the latter looks at her Admiral a bit sheepishly before grabbing his arm. He gives a small smile.

    "I won't leave you, unless the situation demands it. And even then, I will be with you in spirit. Always watching...right?"

    The raven-haired destroyer's face lights up as she hugs his arm tighter. "Yes...Always!"


    A few hours later, they arrive back at Buin. After telling the girls to check in with Yuubari for their gear, Minato heads to the room marked "Headquarters": his office. The door is closed when he approaches it. He gives three swift knocks.

    A cough from inside the room, followed by a young girl's voice. "Come in. The door is open."

    As he opens the door, he sees Murakumo leaning on the desk, facing him. Her face is stern, but her eyes show her relief at seeing him. "Commander."

    "Murakumo. Just who I wanted to see. " He frowns slightly. "I'd like to discuss some things...Care to listen?"

    She raises her head, a smirk growing on her face. In a playful tone, she responds, "Oh? It must be something reeaal important." She turns, sitting on the desk. "What is it this time?"

    Closing the door, the young man walks towards the chair behind the desk. "Well, part of it deals with Hayashimo. The rest will come later."

    The smirk goes to a full grin. "All right, you have my attention...Minato."

    @PixelSupreme If ya think about it after looking closer at both Observer's fic, and both of our collab chapters, it might just be obvious~

    Provided it is what I think it is.

    @Emerald Acid I think you know exactly what's going to happen. The question then becomes...how does it? Hmhmhm...

    @PixelSupreme She knows quite a bit, considering she's the veteran of the base. Mostly of her fellow fleetmates...
