I dunno, I mean, "Flandre, second of the Scarlet-class* battleships**" has a certain ring to it.

Oof. That must be no bueno.

   Based on the type of and sheer volume of fire available to her, I'd definitely lean towards assault carriers.

True. And it's better to eat a Union Core than a Neuroi core because (a) the former doesn't necessarily overwrite your mind, and (b) Corwin's there to help midwife her rebirth as a vampire battleship.

My lips are tingling, my head spins when I move it, and I get all kinds of random disconnected thoughts even more than my divergent neurology already does. Last night, I came up with the idea for an all-cat remake of the Metal Gear Solid series, produced by Kitty O. Kojima. :V

But I'm on a taper to get me off it, so my psychiatrist and I can try and see if another antidepressant actually helps more.

Alas, of the three historical ships actually named HMS or HMAS Vampire, two were destroyers and one a WWII-era submarine, none of which, I contend, has sufficient grandeur. :)

This reminds me of when I was coming off the Demerol after they took away my dope-on-demand button, a couple days after the fucked-up cancer surgery from hell, and I dreamed what I am reasonably sure, in my hazy recollection, was a complete yakuza-themed action buddy comedy I starred in opposite Beat Takeshi.

Well, that's better than what I was initially afraid of, which was something along the lines of "welp, lost my insurance, HERE WE GOOOOOOOO~" :/

So what would a vampire battleship feed off of? I have this partially formed mental image of a ship whose bow splits open, revealing steel fangs, and chomps down on lesser vessels, sucking all the fuel out of them. Not a very functional sort of idea, outside of certain anime universes (might fit in Gurren Lagann for example.)

I could actually see there being a market for such a game, and it would open up some new possible stealth and movement mechanics.

The downside is that it would inevitably followed by Kitty O's deliriously incoherent passion project, Cat Stranding.

   Doesn't "deliriously incoherent passion project" describe most of Kojima's work?

(okay, I suppose the "passion" part may be variable and/or negotiable.)

Based on the gameplay I've watched online, Death Stranding takes the above to levels that are positively Annovian.

   I can't help but compare a vampire ship to the Abyssals in KanColle.

Granted, so far we've only seen the Reckless, and she's apparently unique, but as we have all seen stranger things have happened.
