My word! What kinds of mischief did Henke and Harrington engage in as roomies?

One went on to become a loose warhead and the other a loose cannon!



Several IIRC, ACM at low altitude over the academy rigatta when the commandant took a dive. IIRC it's alluded to in various stories and books e.g. MMH FoD

You have a point!

Cthia's Greatest Holiday Hits 2017

From: The Admiralty Re: When Not To Abandon Ship

1. Discovering that Pavel Young is your Captain is NOT a legitimate reason to abandon ship.

2. Jumping out of an airlock at the news that Elvis Santino is your Captain is now considered reckless abandonment.*

*Yes, we've considered your plea that the Admiralty leaving you in the hands of that buffoon is also reckless abandonment.
Medusa got its name because the weed is so good it makes your hair wriggle like snakes. Your ass can't move, but your hair dances a jig.
The first time the SLN used their big hammer against the stubborn Manticoran nail...

"SOB! THE FUCKING HAMMER BROKE!"
Far far into the future... Harrington in an old hags home...

"Get those wheelchairs back in closer!"
When Benjamin first asked Honor to help his navy after her falling from grace, Honor replied...

"I've fallen and I can't get up!"
Terekov is worse than Macaulay Culkin. Shit always happens when they leave him alone...

The only difference between him and Honor is that Terekov wears his tick on his wrist.
The SLN is strategy and tactics blind. They would probably think that 'smoke and mirrors' is an allusion to marijuana and cocaine.
Coglin's long awaited lawsuit against Honor's reckless driving which blew the nodes of his Dispatch Boat, has finally been settled. His correspondence from Manticore...

"She has the proper license now. Remember the phrase, 'Driving like a bitch out of hell?'"
The RMN begins indoctrinating potential officers beginning with Sesame Street...

An R-M-N L-A-C confronted an S-L-N B-C on G-P. The C-O of the L-A-C radioed the B-C to heave to. The B-C radioed "Eat my dust." The C-O of the L-A-C, being KOed by the remark, sent a few carrier pigeons to deliver his response. The long-legged birds of the L-A-C made the P.S. of the final message quite clear... "R-I-P."
While in battle, why does Honor have a habit of rubbbing her nose when she's thinking?

It has to do with the Pinocchio effect. She is always trying to convince herself that she isn't what the Opposition painted her...

"I'm not a bloodthirsty bitch. I'm not a bloodthirsty bitch."
The paste made from the Liebenden Nußbaum tree possessed a natural bioluminescence which made it glow in the dark. It was also a powerful contact aphrodisiac, and it was often blended with a smorgasbord of euphorics.

Nussbutter sure gives a new meaning to glow worm. Talk about spread eagled.

The excitement of your partner is very motivating... "I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S BUTTER!" :o :o :o

And talk about removing the stumbling blocks and lighting up the runway!
"‘The Solarian League is like a hog. You have to kick it in the snout to get its attention.’”


And sometimes you've got to fry a little bacon!
"Nimitz! Why are your eyes rolling?!"

<Get out Honor! I'm having phone sex!>

"Phone sex? But you don't have a phone."

<Telempaths don't need phones!>

"But your transmitter is broken!"

<But my receiver ain't! Now get out!>
If a high ranking female officer had timely walked in on Young and short stopped the entire rape attempt right when he reached out for Honor then Young would have had to explain himself. Beginning with Dimitri.

"What have you gotten yourself into now?"

"I was just horsing around."

"It appeared to the officer you were going to try and mount her."

"You see a horse, you try and put a saddle on it."

"That horse is from Sphinx! And she ain't broken son!"

"Oh? Then I would have enjoyed the ride."

"You'd've gotten yourself thrown and ended up with a broken neck you idiot!"
Some things you really shouldn't read while eating. Email from my niece...

"Give all of the captured Solly ships to the Stilthies, they can get high in them. It worked for the Sollies."

"That really is hilarious honey, the Stilthies were getting soooo high."

"Not only that Uncle. They were getting so high they were hallucinating. Same as the Sollies."

" :lol: "


My niece...

How do you increase Solly SD compensator efficiency?

Retard retardation.


How many Solly SDs does it take to return home from a mission?

Several hundred to be destroyed. Several hundred to be captured and one smart enough to have feigned sadness from engine problems before completing the trip.

"Aww, I'm sorry, but it seems we can't continue on with this mission."


She's on a roll. I try to jump in...

"The problem with their Scientist class is that their scientists never actually attended any class. So maybe that's a sure way to increase compensator efficiency. Fire the scientists."

She fires back...

"I doubt that they really wanted to increase efficiency. Why be in a hurry to meet your doom?"
BREAKING NEWS
A very old wiretapping of a secret meeting in the House of Lords reminiscent of the Watergate scandal of yore is found and "leaked" to the public. Parts of audio is inaudible as the subject seems to be spouting incoherent vehemence through gritted teeth...

"Have you all gone mad! That out of control lunatic simply cannot be allowed to have a seat in the Lords!"

"Why not?"

" :o BECAUSE IT'D ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THAT HOLIER-THAN-THOU JUMPED-UP BASEBORN BI—"

"#@&%$" (bleep)

"#%$@#@##@$@#$@#$" (inaudible)

"@%&%" (bleep)

"IS LORD OF THE WHOLE PHUCKING REALM!"
"No! No! No! Aren't you all listening?! She's a Salamader that dances on clouds with a six-legged demon on her shoulder! She's nuts I tell you! Can't you see she's nuts!"

"Stop flailing your arms. We don't know sign language."
After some time had passed...

" :roll: Just as I warned you idiots. Now she's

LORD OF THE WHOLE FUCKING REALM

THE TWO KINGDOMS!"
The first cat has been offically hired in a naval capacity as a truth detector and interrogator to assist the navy in interviewing captured SLN personnel and has been spending an inordinate amount of time at the admiralty. All is well except for one thing. It seems he has acquired some rather colorful two-leg language and can blister battle steel as well as any of 'em.

"How are you liking your new job?," asked Elizabeth upon a subsequent visit to the palace.

<Humping Hera, goddamn lame brain two-legs. If it wasn't for the SLN liking celery I'd have to give them a phucking goose egg on the sentience scale! Silly rat-bastard sons of bitches>

" :o :o"

"I think it's high time we pulled you out of the admiralty."

<Phucking A?>

It shocked Ariel so much he began signing in incoherent old archaic cat...

>I wish they'd stop wasting our skills and sending us into Solly space. There simply isn't anything worth seeing<

>Or reporting<

>I know. I'm getting sick and tired of holding my breath which causes me to overheat under my bonnet something fierce, just so's we can be stealthy. What are we hiding from anyway? The retarded idiots failed to see us even when we used that little trick you came up with on the fly of attaching ourselves to their hulls to increase endurance<


>How do you guys manage to get so close? They don't send me that far in yet<

>It's your confidence, son. You simply don't trust how stealthy you are<

> No shit Sherlock, we're so frigging stealthy that it takes a while for them to see us even when we're being obvious. That's always going to be the hardest task you're likely to be given when it comes to the SLN son. How to be obvious to idiots?<

>That's an understatement. I almost burned myself out venting my waste heat all at once trying to get one idiot's ship's attention and they still didn't know what they were looking at<

>Did you hear about the time I lodged myself right up the orifice of one of their admirals and he didn't even know I was there? He just thought he was constipated. To be fair, he was sort of backed up you know. With ignorance<

> :D <

>What, you too? ... It's that shit eatin' grin<

>Oh! Well... yea. I think its a common Ghost Rider technique. I still have some of my dazzlers lodged up a Captain's butt. Every time he passes gas I know exactly where he is<

The sh :ocked little probe that could...

>You drones are amazing. But even if they can't see you, don't they feel you when you're knocking at the back door?<

>You'd think so. But the MAlign has already thoroughly bu**ph*cked these idiots quite well. Trust us, their hymen has long been broken<
What is the most famous riddle known throughout the Honorverse?

When Harrington riddled Summervale with bullets, of course!
Every time I think of that entire confrontation of Honor going up against Summervale, I cannot stop my mind from transposing the scene in "Tombstone" when Doc Holiday (Val Kilmer) went up against the famously fast Johnny Ringo...

But first, to set it up.

"Come on Denver! Come on! Come on! Poor soul. He was just too high-strung."
Case: Zulu is a Royal Manticoran Navy alarm signal that is to be sent from a Naval vessel or installation upon good evidence that an invasion of the Star Kingdom of Manticore is imminent.


Case: WOOHOO! is an old pirate alarm signal that is to be sent from a pirate vessel throughout the 'brotherhood of pirates' upon good evidence that the Star Kingdom is under a Case Zulu -- when all of that unwanted firepower is suddenly sucked back into the magical black hole called The Manticore Binary System. The little fish are suddenly biting!
"Will someone else please take a turn snatching some of this shit off! My arm is getting tired!"

"Ok, but I ain't touching that 'Star of Grayson.' Look at 'em hovering! The Graysons don't take too kindly to snatching off their bling!"
MISTRESS THORN COOKS SPICY
Menu: Sphinxian Hot Tamales with Sphinxian Hot chili peppers served with a traditionally hot Sphinixian soup.


<Boing boing boing boing boing!>

"What's wrong Piper?"

<THIS SHIT IS HOT! Mistress Thorn!>

"WHAT DID YOU JUST EAT?"

<Your silly chili celery soup!>

"Which pot?"

<Red pot!>

" :o That's not Silly Chili Celery Soup! The red pot is SPHINXIAN SUPER SPICY SILLY CHILI CELERY SOUP! FIFTY-FIVE ALARM! It wasn't meant for you 'Cats! ... Stop jumping!"

<Not jumping! Steam coming out of ears! Acting like thrusters!>

"JANE! STOP THIS CRAZY THING! JANE! HELP!"
Honor has one of her many nightmares while sleeping.

"I FINALLY GOT MY HANDS AROUND YOUR NECK YOU WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT!"

"Stop Honor! Stop! It's me, yo—" choke choke ... gasp gasp ... "husband!"

"RE TURN TO FOR MA SHUN! RE TURN TO FOR MA SHUN!"
It is trending in Reginald's social circles that Honor slapped the GPA out of Houseman.

Well, she wasn't exactly going for the P, as much as the A.

GA.
We ain't no pussycats! —The Solarian Gender Marys
There's a commercial floating around on HD that Harrington has finally endorsed. It is a commercial about pantyhose. Honor's pantyhose were caught on video running in several places when she entered the bar to smack down Denver Summervale.

"Women, wear the hose that stands up to your anger. With our new Sallyhosen Bitchslaps, you can count on getting all of the support that you need. These leader-hosen won't get so frightened that they run too."

Did Camp Inferno have a disco?

Get a load of these lyrics. I sure know what they all listened to on the way out of the system. Surprisingly enough, Nimitz picked the selection on the juke box. Honor and Co. definitely approved. So apropos, ya know?


Disco Inferno
The Trammps

(Burn baby burn)
(Burn baby burn)
(Burn baby burn)
(Burn baby burn)
To my surprise, one hundred stories high
People getting loose y'all, getting down on the roof
Folks are screaming, out of control
It was so entertaining when the boogie started to explode
I heard somebody say
(Burn baby burn) disco inferno
(Burn baby burn) burn that mother down
(Burn baby burn) disco inferno
(Burn baby burn) burn that mother down
Satisfaction came in a chain reaction
(Burnin')
I couldn't get enough, so I had to self-destruct
The heat was on, rising to the top
Everybody going strong, and that is when my spark got hot
I heard somebody say
(Burn baby burn) disco inferno
(Burn baby burn) burn that mother down y'all
(Burn baby burn) disco inferno
(Burn baby burn) burn that mother down
Up above my head
I hear music in the air
That makes me know
There's a party somewhere
Satisfaction came in a chain reaction
(Burnin')
I couldn't get enough, so I had to self-destruct
The heat was on, rising to the top
Everybody going strong, and that is when my spark got hot
I heard somebody say
(Burn baby burn) disco inferno
(Burn baby burn) burn that mother down
(Burn baby burn) disco inferno
(Burn baby burn) burn that mother down
(Burn baby burn)
(Burn baby burn) burn that mother down
(Burn baby burn) disco inferno
(Burn baby burn) burn that mother down
(Just can't stop) when my spark gets hot
(Just can't stop) when my spark gets hot
(Just can't stop) when my spark gets hot
(Just can't stop) when my spark gets hot
(Just can't stop) when my spark gets hot
When my spark gets hot
(Just can't stop) when my spark gets hot
(Just can't stop) when my spark gets hot

Honor finally laughs about the jokes targeting her on planet.

*** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** ***

Honor can't figure out why so many couples are inviting her to their wedding.

With so many medals, she stands in perfectly for a car dragging tin cans.

Honor's ship can no longer hide in stealth. Her enemies just turn on their medal detectors.

Certain Keys on Grayson and Manticore's own Opposition are claiming that Harrington is no longer worth her weight in medals.

The Opposition is approaching Harrington to do the right thing and send her medals to the breakers. "She has enough to build an SD!"

Certain members of the Keys are teaming with bribed environmentalists and complaining about Harrington bringing heavy medals inside the city.

It seems that Honor is perturbed because so many civilians are saluting her on planet.

But they aren't. They're shielding their eyes from the sun's glare reflected off her medals. She's become a hazard.


Was Honor facing the sun when she dueled?

No wonder she didn't turn sideways. She had the advantage of glare.

Honor has so many medals that foreign governments think she's wearing body armor.

Some governments see her and think she's a Japanese creation with two-legs up in robotics.

McGuiness has rubbed so many medals that a genie pops out every time.

Honor has to wear lead shielding before every missile launch because she's shining so brightly it confuses Apollo.

The Hauptmans aren't really her friends, they're trying to mine the medals.

Honor has so many medals her ship can only tow half the amount of pods. Shannon has suggested she should just limpet them to the hull.

"Why is Harrington's ship flashing her running lights?"

"That's just Honor hurrying past the observation decks."

"Um, Milady. We're rigged for silent running. You might want to remove your medals.
Raoul is in his terrible twos? Oh! no! :roll:

"Fowl."

"Say again Mistress Thorn?"

"It's not a "foul" smell, Protector, it's a "fowl" smell. Guess who's coming to dinner? Honor and that metabolistic miscreant of a teenage mutant ninja chicken slayer are coming. Whenever the two of 'em visit together, we have to execute all of the chickens in the orbital habitat. My kitchen turns into a slaughter house when the two of them show up in tandem."

"All of them?"

"All of them. In fact, I hear the chickens are learning sign language so they can tell Raoul to 'Eat more turkey, the other white meat that tastes like chicken.'"

"I swear, those two are going to eat us out of house and home."

"Don't you mean house and planet, Protector?"

NEWSFLASH!

A MAlign sleeper agent has been exposed on Manticore. She was caught photographing Harrington's personnel files. When the photos were examined and she was interrogated, it was discovered that she wasn't exactly interested in Harrington's records.

Apparently it got back to Malign ears that Nimitz had been spending an inordinate amount of time at Saganami Island while Honor was teaching there.

It seems that the MAlign are frightened. They just wanted to know if Nimitz' first name is Chester.

When I think of it, maybe we should give Byng a little credit. Perhaps he wasn't such an idiot after all.

The first tactic he adopted when meeting a Manty force, was to shoot while their pants were down.

"But Captain, their wedges are still down."
"You want me to wait until they raise them? FUCK THAT! Fire!"

At least Byng, personally, didn't harbor any misconceptions about Manty capabilities!

Cthia, whatever you did eat and drink during the Xmas-days - please keep eating and drinking it! I literally rolled on the floor, loughing reading your holiday hits ... Thank you for that from the bottom of my heart!

You are very welcome Eagleeye. Thanks, also from the bottom of my heart for the compliment and for appreciating the effort. And for not suffering from a dislocated funny bone. Formatting can be a copper-plated Ransom on a project like this. Many last minute decisions can only be made after posting when I can view them in their WYSIWYG form. Therefore, a bit of post editing inevitable.

It was just discovered that Honor has dyslexia. She thought her name was Ohnor, which still works. So there was never any problem. How was she to know?


Militaries from the beginning of time has had their foot problems. Trench foot. Blistered foot. Cracking foot. Heat foot. Athletes foot.

The SLN is no exception. They have a foot problem too called Manty-corns. And they're always getting kicked in the ass with it.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

Manticore did recover something on Mesa. They learned that everyone living on Elm Street were having nightmares for centuries and were afraid to fall asleep, fearing that they would be awakened to the face of Krueger Detweiler.

It was called Nightmares on Elm Street. Whatever you do, don't fall asleep.

Meanwhile, back on Old Earth amidst the Mandarins...
