    KS Update 118

    Probably the fact that the Royal Navy used the name Nautilus (Greek for "sailor") as far back as 1762 for a number of sloops. There have been ships in the Royal Navy named after a certain hunter from Greek Mythology since 1787, so I'm sure from then until now their paths have crossed once or twice... Other than some really generic names like Ocean or Shark, there aren't too many Belles that have so many past-life ships of different navies to draw from. No wonder "Naughtly-lass" is such a loose cannon: if it's Tuesday, I must be a USN submarine.

    La Belle Galerie Redux

    Once upon a time, forum member Dano created a chart of the Belles we knew of at the start and put them in a handy grid format for all to enjoy. That was before the current forum changes, which added this album area. This seems a logical place for such a resource.

    Update 112: On Captains & Pin-Ups

    A few more thoughts then, to add to your thought process... Shimenawa are put around any suitably impressive object capable of attracting a kami such as boulders and trees (yorishiro). Since the hulls of INJ Belles have demonstrated themselves to clearly be capable of housing a kami (go-shintai), in theory the whole perimeter of any IJN Belle's ship should be festooned with them. That would likely be impractical to do (even with hemp in place of rice straw) out to sea, but to add to a ship's dressing when coming to port? That would depend on how much extra room said ship had to house the stuff: bigger ships could afford the room for heftier, more elaborate/impressive shimenawa. Given that shimenawa delineate the border between the mundane world and the sacred dwelling of (one or more) kami, a practical alternative application might simply be at a ship's access ramp and gangplank - to remind all those going aboard that they are entering a sacred place. ...But that's just me. I do think you've over-thought of the captain's title. I would counter that a Belle ship is not a Mikoshi since there is nothing temporary about her residence in her hull. The Belle-kami dwells in an object (warship) that just happens to be able to travel, rather than being in a temporary transport to take her to a permanent home or on a festival-long jaunt though the neighborhood. Possibly a better term for a ship with a Belle would be Mitamashiro (the object that houses an enshrined kami). I wonder how many of the IJN Belles actually view themselves as "gods", especially in the Western sense of the term, given that kami is much more broadly encompassing than that. Certainly they are spirits and it would be only proper to show them great respect (even if they weren't the ones standing between the Empire and the Morganas).

    What You Can Find On YouTube These Days

    Of special note is at 4:00..."the captain lives in a broom closet". I'm not sure whether that means all captains regardless of ship size/class live in equal (lack of) luxury, or that destroyer captains live in a medicine cabinet over a sink.

    Option 1. Between the royalties and the popcorn, I figure I can make a mint at box offices worldwide out of the comedic gold. ...How else am I supposed to cover the cost of seventy cans of icing? ;p

    KS Update 104

    Except Texas is a battleship and this is the Cruiser Club. Houston could represent, but that would require her to help Redacted 8 with the cat-herding; I think there's a reason why she isn't present. As for me, Option 6. It's gonna be a loooong war at this rate so I'd rather not eat up all the tasty critters this early.

    History questions

    I found a copy of the 4 September 1939 *Rocky Mountain News*. In Denver it was reported as a German torpedo attack: Since your question is about October, I also discovered a whole site with clippings that include clippings from September 8 1939 through to 1941. Hope that helps.

    KS Update Captain's Association: On Belle & Morgana Aviation

    Given her name is for the Battle of Lexington (and Concord) she'll probably never give the RN a break... and being called a RN ship Fightin' Words. ... Crows are omnivores and will at least eat other things besides carrion. Buzzards (maybe vulture would be more accurate) are carrion eaters.
