I have already given my review on Reddit. Just giving my thanks again. Stay healthy, my fellow AL fan!

I am both completely unsurprised and yet somehow disappointed that you are ALREADY setting Thorson up to be cheating on Kaga from Day One. "Yeah, it'll just be a political marriage, he can still keep a harem of mistresses!" Is he not even going to TRY?

It would genuinely be a much better story if he and Kaga slowly warmed to each other and put other distractions aside.

I hope he can get the matter of the alliance resolved soon, it’s like a boiling pot about to explode with all the issues in one place.

Great chapter! Thank you.

Oh man, can't wait to see how this marriage proposal is resolved, especially when they decide to shift their focus to the ironblood. Can't wait.

Huh, makes one wonder if he will go with the Harem route in the end. As far as I know, Federal and State Law don't ban mistresses', but I don't think Polyamory is legal. With an exception in Utah of all places. But that doesn't seem like a good reason to pack up and move to a different state. I suppose, at the end of the day, the one that Andy here loves above all else would be the one with the ring. Seems like a reasonable conclusion. It is pretty clear that he doesn't have the heart to give up any of them. And I think it is obvious that both he and Kaga are going to try and find an alternative solution.

So here is what I think based on the current developments. We know that Kaga respects Andrew on the grounds that he proved to be her better. That though she doesn't get it, she at least understands that the bonds he has with his fleet is what helped get him the victory. Something she lacks for the most part, beyond unquestionable loyalty. We also know that Andy respects her despite his hatred for her and Akagi. So, ultimately, I think they can come to an understanding to cooperate. He can't make this decision alone though, Nimitz must be there to hear all of this. We know that Nimitz seems to be a bit partial to Kansen, he did award Hornet the Medal of Honor, so I think he would be a bit more cooperative on this. Marriage, I believe, is not the answer here. The alternatives will be much harder to pull off though. But I think if Andy can get Kaga to cooperate, get her Human superiors to the diplomatic table, keep Akagi on a tight leash with Nagato's help, and rally what remains of the Imperial Navy against the Sirens, then things should go relatively well. Depending on where in the War we are, Andrew can use this to convince Congress to end the war sooner and with less bloodshed, if Truman is in office then this could work. I can't speak for FDR though. To be honest, neither option is a guarantee, Imperial command could just disavow the whole thing and the war would just continue. This could change if the Emperor steps up to the plate, which could mean either an extended war, or an early end.

I look forward to the next installment.

Oh DAMN that was definitely not something I was expecting. A political marriage offer out of left field, and to Kaga of all ships unexpected and brilliant, I love it

Oh, this is just too good. You are a genuinely good writer, and this is by far the longest *well-written* piece of AL content I've been able to find on here, so I've kept reading despite the fact that I despise harems. Or at least harems where the author is making a serious effort to sell it as a good thing instead of either comedy or the degradation of all parties that it ultimately always is. There have been parts where I've had to seriously grit my teeth.

But this...

Thorson cannot turn this down. Nagato is the ultimate authority among the Sakura, both in this AU and what passes for AL canon. Akagi and Kaga were only able to lead because she was not present. Fuso and Yamashiro's authority came from appointing themselves Nagato's mouthpieces and stand-ins. They may not turn their guns on him, but if Nagato orders them to simply leave Thorson, then the vast majority of his Sakura ships will do so. On the flipside, Nagato isn't lying. Tying Kaga to Azure Lane in this manner will get the total cooperation of every single Sakura ship for one reason or another. Thorson has no reason not to do this other than that it'll suck for him personally.

Which frankly he deserves IMO. This is a well-deserved punishment for both him and Kaga. She has to give herself over as the wife of her most hated enemy. And Mr. Serial Philanderer is going to have to stick to one bed and one only; or else the guy who put on such a show of faith on Easter, loudly proclaims his Christianity, and uses Christian prayers at multiple points including every time he presides over a funeral will have to explain to God why he wiped his ass with the Sixth Commandment's letter as well as its spirit. Oh, and if he cheats on Kaga Nagato will have every reason to declare the alliance void. That's how these things work.

They should have San Diego sing at the wedding reception to really set the tone.

I'm going to follow this for now, though undoubtedly I'll regret that when you probably have him still continue the harem somehow and present it as a good thing.

Laffey wins the duel against the Hiei in this timeline!

Ten battleships against half that number, this should've simply been a steamroll in favor of the Union once they got in range. Though to be fair you nerfed the Sakura because the Yamato and Musashi were present at the real life Midway IIRC.

Aw, see, Admiral Spruance does care. Good, I didn't understand the original portrayal of him as an asshole. There weren't really an assholes in the US Admirals other than I suppose King, and Spruance was a good commander.

I very much wonder if we'll get to see the later models of battleship. South Dakota is the only one you've shown so far that was truly modern. After the current event as I write this, and the introduction of the Iowa-class/New Jersey, I can only imagine Miss NJ easily breaking Tennessee in half without even trying.

Three different women in less than a couple hours?

This absolute unit.

At least he got back with Cleveland, who is still by far the best girl out of the options available to him.

Carriers: can strike enemies from hundreds of miles away.

Battleships: can strike enemies from thirty miles away at most.

Battleships look badass. They ARE badass. But it simply is utterly irrational to pretend that in naval warfare, they could ever ultimately compete with airpower.
