Time to be helpful! Time to write to the regulars! Yeah!
Aw, cripes, what do I say? It’s like all the good stuff has already been said already. Be thankful! Be independent? Eat lots of good food and be merry? Enjoy your time with family?
Ooh okay I got it! Heheh! Okay. This is Zuikaku, rebel crane of STEC! Since everyone’s out and about today, I thought I’d say something on behalf of everyone. You’ve got plenty of advice about what you should do, but do you ever think about why?
Why be thankful? Why be happy?
“The best is yet to come, so live your best life!”

While shipgirls are known for their colorful, distinctive, and even occasionally outlandish outfits, the reality is that there is much still to be learned about the nature of their clothing. Chemical and structural analysis, for instance, reveals nothing out of the ordinary relative to their mundane counterparts. On the field, however, their resilience is a totally different matter – as durable as the shipgirls themselves.
Efforts to attempt to replicate shipgirl clothing for non-shipgirl purposes have been so far, unsuccessful. Nonetheless, a number of breakthroughs have been made. Below we present one such project – codenamed Variable – that was halted prior to the Abyssal War.

Curator’s note: The contents of the message makes it rather abundantly clear that this is right before Admiral Yin’s promotion. Tch, sometimes I wonder if all this classification/NDA is a bit pointless.
Note from New Jersey: This letter and others are part of a rotating display of my correspondences with shipgirls, admirals, and other persons of interest prior to, during, and after the Abyssal War. I voluntarily donated these to STEC Archives after obtaining permission from the involved parties. The contents are unaltered, so expect spelling errors and the occasional splotch of coffee.
