Fear is your only god

 I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Bene Gesserit litany against fear

Earlier this week, glorious Jan warlord F4bske informed me of a gate camp in Iesa and I sent VJ to clear it.

When VJ landed on the Netsalakka gate in his Maelstrom, there were a flashy Tengu, a Drake and a Harb on grid. VJ started shooting the Tengu and the two battlecruisers went GCC on him. With sentries focusing on the Harb, VJ took him out first and this killed the Drake just as a Hurricane and two Scimitars were landing (KB link). The 100MN AB Tengu was never a realistic target and the Cane did not even aggress even though he had two logis backing him by that time. So VJ just popped the wreck and jumped out, exchanging gf's with the pirates.

Today, after our scout reported pilots of the same corporation in Iesa, VJ offered them a rematch by jumping in. They took a few minutes to undock in two Maelstroms and a Tempest.

And then they never aggressed, just trying to bump VJ away from the gate with little success. In the end, VJ drifted out of jump range himself and they brought a Basilisk to the field, but still chose not to aggress.

VJ is being smug all day.
