    I had a sudden image of a version of Alteisen loaded with the cloned hands of Bright in its shoulders rather than titanium ball bearings.

    I have no idea what would happen to its targets.

    That's because Kyosuke can Bright Slap people without even using his hands - see his verbal beatdown of Sanger on his route in OG1 causing an immediate Heel Face Turn.

    He saves the actual punching for supernatural mind-control cases.

    Hey everyone! The hiatus is over, I'm back in action. I hope I did not lose too much of a reader base during the week. We'll just have to see.

    ===========

    Chapter 17: Blue Drifter

    Let's jump straight into the introduction.
    Spoiler
    Show



    Emperor: What is the meaning of this, Gattler?!


    Gattler: The people of Aldebaran are tired of waiting for the useless scientists to come with their "breakthrough"! If our planet, S-1, is ruined, we will just steal another one.
    Emperor: You cannot do that!


    Aphrodia: Yes, we can.
    Pew pew pew.
    Emperor: Remember me... for all my three lines of dialogue...
    Gattler: Pfeh, old fool. We'll blame his death on the science team. Now, time to find and invade a lush, green planet!
    Aphrodia: Yes, sir.

    And now we know what the whole deal is. Except... who the heck are these people?


    Toshiya: Hey, why so down again Renton? Cheer up, you won't be forced to stay here as a clerk forever.
    Renton: I will if you won't buy anything... you're reading this magazine for two hours now but you didn't buy it.
    Toshiya: Oops! Toshiya away! Let my friends entertain you instead!
    Julie: *plays like a madman on an arcade*
    Tex: A new challenger appears!
    Julie: Heh, I won't lose that easily...
    Tex: Youthful spirit, eh? You guys remind me of Freeden's mobile suit pilots.
    Julie: Was that supposed to be a compliment, or an insult?
    Garrod: Did someone say "Freeden's mobile suit pilots"? Here's the great Garrod! How you holding up, Renton?
    Renton: A lot of people come in, but somehow nobody buys anything...
    Garrod: At this rate you'll have to live in a cardboard box! But worry not, 's long as you got Eureka, it'll be fine.
    Renton: Eeeeh?!
    Garrod: I know you too well, Renton! We two are like brothers, I got Tiffa and you have Eureka. We will protect them together, right?


    Eureka: You talk strange things, Garrod.
    Renton: Eureka!
    Garrod: Ha! I knew it.
    Eureka: Are you not slacking off in the shop? Holland told me to beat you up if you do.
    Renton: N... no! Not at all! Money's coming in like crazy! Capitalism ho, ha ha ha...
    Eureka: Tiffa wanted to talk to me now. Don't let Garrod steal that magazine while you are not looking.
    Garrod: Caught! I'll be going now...
    Renton: Hey, wait!

    Tiffa: Something... is coming. The butterfly is forming above your head, Eureka.
    Eureka: I see. This is peculiar... what will happen with me and Nirvash next?
    Tiffa: I don't really know yet...


    Gonzy: Would you like some tea, ladies?
    Tiffa: Yes, please.
    Eureka: Gonzy? You were here?
    Gonzy: From the start.

    Wacky hijinks aside, where does the group head to now? Well, there was a seperation. Minerva and Argama went out on a Very Important Mission, and everyone else... they decided to move out to Trinity City. Because why not. Speaking of Trinity City...


    Queenstein: Nice to see you again, Duke Fleed. Did you find your reason for fighting yet?
    Duke: No, but I came here with a goal in mind. The man named Marin... I want to talk to him.
    Getsuei: He is outside, spending his time moping and daydreaming... the Fixer pilots don't seem to like him either.
    Hikaru: Oh my. Is he going to be alright?


    Jamie: Tell me about your home planet again, Marin.


    Marin: S-1 is a beautiful planet, with wide blue oceans... or rather, was! Pollution created by the last war destroyed it with minimal hope of salvation. My father was one of the scientists, working for its rebirth. But then, Gattler's forces staged a coup and decided to take someone else's planet rather than rebuilding our old one. Only by chance did I find myself here... and the rest of Aldebaran forces will be here soon.
    Raita: Isn't that a sad sob story... too bad it's all made up, because I don't see any S-1 spacemen around here.
    Oliver: And even if it's true somehow, it's far more likely that you came here with a mission rather than by chance. We don't trust you very well.
    Raita: Yeah, I think you're a spy.


    Marin: You want a piece of me?!
    Raita: Bring it!
    Marin: Roses bi...
    Duke: Stop this infighting at once! You all want to fight for the sake of Earth, do you not? Then don't waste your strength by attacking each other.
    Oliver: Don't interrupt us. It's none of your business.
    Duke: It is! For I, too am an...

    ALARM!

    Duke: Worst possible timing. This is what I call super robot drama.


    Rie: Unidentified craft are closing in. Again.
    Duke: I will stop them! Are you with me, miss Hikaru!
    Hikaru: You can always count on me!
    Duke: It must be the S-1. I understand that you want your own planet, but I will not let you take someone else's! Spin Saucer!
    Aldebaran soldier: You talk too much, I'm outta here!

    Yes, the Algae are pilotted now. The skill point condition is revealed from the start: finish the map in 6 turns. This looks like it's going to be fun.


    Toshiya: Did you need help kicking ass? Here we are!
    Minako: Yaay~! It's Toshiya, he came to save us!
    Jamil: All units, engage the enemy! Freeden cannot move on this terrain very well, we'll have to stay behind.
    Garrod: I got ya back, Renton. Show 'em what you got!
    Renton: Well, Eureka's still the main pilot so...

    Touga: Roger that. I will destroy the enemy.
    Eiji: And the doofus is in serious mode again, huh?
    Luna: Hey, don't bash Touga! He's the one who'll do the bashing!

    Roybea: Hey, Witz. Don't you think charging in so close to the enemy is a bit reckless?
    Witz: What can they do, attack us? Oh crap! Okay guys, I'll show ya what Airmaster can do!

    Even Airmaster Burst has enough firepower to take down the Algae in one shot. But not the Nirvash, apparently. And since the enemy liked to attack the latter, some forces are still alive by the start of turn three. Not good, but what can you do - you go forward and destroy what's left. And when that happens...


    Aphrodia: Initial scouts were destroyed? Then we'll move in with the full attack force!


    Oliver: So the S-1 are not made up after all. Let's do it, Raita.
    Raita: Let's shoot 'em all down!

    Aphrodia: Fools! I brought special reinforcements!
    Leele: Ah! They're teleporting?
    Touga: How is that even remotely possible?
    Queenstein: That is not teleportation. That is subspace hopping.
    Raita: Whatever you call it, we're getting our asses kicked out here!
    Holland: All units, scramble! We'll try to trap them!
    Talho: Crap, that was a bad idea!
    Getsuei: But I have a good one...


    Getsuei: We need you to help us, Marin.
    Marin: No way. Not after how you treated me. And what did you do with my spaceship, anyway?
    Getsuei: I modified it a bit, so it could serve in our defense.
    Marin: So you want to use even me as a weapon now?!
    Queenstein: Yes. Do not interpret it the wrong way - we want to hire you. Not for selfish needs though. Blue Fixer needs you to defend the Earth! Or would you rather it followed the fate of your old homeworld?
    Marin: ...

    Aphrodia: It's the traitor! Marin Raygun is here!
    Raita: Raygun? Ridiculous name aside, Marin is inside that unit?
    Marin: Yes. It's me, Marin.
    Raita: We don't need help from an alien!
    Oliver: We were doing just fine here.
    Duke: Don't be ridiculous! He saved your lives and this is how you repay him? Just because Marin is an alien? Then you must know... I am an alien too!
    Marin: What?
    Duke: I am Duke Fleed, the prince of planet Fleed! I came down to Earth escaping the aggressors from Vega. You should treat me as you treat Marin.
    Hikaru: That is, you should be nice to both. Otherwise, you will have to face my reasonable, well-mannered wrath!
    Raita: I guess... we were total jerks right now, weren't we?
    Oliver: Yeah.
    Eiji: Alright! Everything is settled so you should do the thing.
    Toshiya: That's right! Combine! This is what Super Robots do!
    Marin: These units can combine?
    Queenstein: Of course. What else could Getsuei do with your craft but to able it to combine with others?
    Marin: In that case... try to trust me, you two! And if you won't, I will defend the Earth anyway! Let's go!

    Marin: Baldios! Charge up! Thunder FLASH!
    Renton: Way... too cool...

    Ladies and gentlemen, I present you the combining super robot Baldios. It. Is. Awesome.

    Aphrodia: Baldios? So that is the name of this robot? But don't worry, we still have enough firepower to take you down!
    Marin: We'll see about that! Subspace Thrust, activate! Shoulder cannon!

    Matthew: That's some crazy stuff going on out there, Leader!
    Holland: We'll be no worse than that, fighting giant jellyfish or not. Let's go, beach bums!

    Unfortunately, most other units are not in range, so we can't launch a full scale offensive yet.

    Raita: These S-1 guys are attacking us again!
    Oliver: We have enough defensive systems to take them down. You know what to do, Marin.
    Marin: I'll dodge them with a short range jump! And now! Bal Saber! Subspace Beam!

    Not only is Baldios absolutely gigantic (it stands at 100 meters tall, equal to size LL - which increases damage dealt and reduces damage received!), it has a chance to automatically dodge all enemy attacks once Marin reaches 130 or more morale. So yeah. It's a great unit.


    Ritsu: Are you having trouble, Aphrodia? I thought so, so I decided to come by and drop some reinforcements.
    Aphrodia: Don't get full of yourself, Ritsu!
    Ritsu: In that case, you should be alright without my battleship to help. Farewell!
    Toshiya: Woah, the Eldar are here? Are they in alliance with S-1?

    Marin: In that case, we'll just have to take down their battleship!
    Aphrodia: It's the traitor Marin! My brother... he died because of you!
    Marin: Do not be ridiculous! Aphrodia, you have only your beloved Gattler to blame!
    Aphrodia: Shut up! I'll never forgive you!

    Duke: We must help Marin. Let's destroy all the escorts!
    Hikaru: Of course, mr Daisuke! "Marin" Cutter!
    Duke: I can't believe I just heard that.

    Garrod: What is this tentacle parrot thing?
    Renton: Eureka, let's go!
    Eureka: Right. Hear my voice, Nirvash...
    Renton: Uh oh! What kind of voice was that, this is bad!
    Eureka: Hold on tight, I'll try to lose it!
    Hilda: Eureka's in trouble, what do we do?
    Holland: Rescue her, of course! Double time now!

    Touga: Our situation is disadvantageous. Permission to combine into Gravion?
    Sandman (appearing out of nowhere): GRANTED!

    Touga has enough SP to cast Spirit twice now, so as soon as he has 110 will, I technically can summon the Gravion. Very useful.

    Mizuki: Powergaming sure is fine, isn't it?
    Eina: Yes, but please do not overdo it, Master Player!

    Witz: Woah, don't forget about me! Annoying guys... I'm in trouble here!
    Roybea: Hang in there. We're not the only ones whom everyone forgot about, Witz.
    Setsuko: Umm...

    Duke: Let's do it again. Are you ready, miss Hikaru?
    Hikaru: I will lend you my strength!
    Duke: Combination CROSS!

    Wish I had the air and ground versions too, but eh - Kouji went to Gallia. He hoped to find Duke Fleed there. Isn't that sad?

    Toshiya: Let's show 'em our super robot spirits, guys! God Saucer!
    Kiraken: That did the job!
    Julie: But somehow, that was not as impressive as what others did.
    Renton: How can you talk so casually while fighting monsters?! And... surviving through high speed acrobations...
    Eureka: Will you need the paper bag again?

    Matthew: Watch out, Leader! Don't get shot down again!
    Holland: As far as I'm concerned, that never happened.
    Toshiya: Here, have a more flashy attack, Julie! Musouken!

    Nevermind that Godsigma runs low on energy. That's what Trinity Charge is for.
    How late is it, anyway? What, Turn 5 already? Time to shape up! And by that, I mean analyze Aphrodia's space carrier (or whatever her unit is named), so she takes more damage. Then finish her off.

    Witz: Let's go, I'll attack head on!
    Roybea: I got your back!
    Setsuko: I'll support you, too.
    Roybea: A shield? That's bad... my shot was completely absorbed!
    Toshiya: Then we'll have to hit HARDER! Musouken, Heavenly Strike!
    Marin: Strongest Subspace attack: Thunder Flash!
    Aphrodia: Do they really think they can sink this ship so easily?

    Yes, yes we do. I am so confident that I will give her a break for now and try to wipe out all the mooks instead.

    Touga: Gravity Crescent!
    Leele: Shoot!
    Duke: Screw Pressure Punch!
    Holland: Damn, this mountain terrain is a pain to navigate...
    Garrod: Even though you're flying?
    Setsuko: A chance to attack! Gunnery Carver, full burst! ... What do you mean, it's almost over anyway?
    Toby: Don't worry, we didn't completely forget about you! I think.

    Witz: Stubborn guys! I'm under attack again? Take this!
    Aldebaran soldier: Aaargh, it worked well the previous time!
    Aldebaran soldier: Attack the big robot instead. Take this, Marin Raygun!
    Marin: Shoulder cannon!
    Aldebaran soldier: That was a bad idea!

    Eureka: Nirvash, time for another stomach-upsetting maneuver.
    Renton: Oh no!
    Eiji: It looks like these guys could use some inspiration. Let's do it, Touga!
    Touga: Gravity Pressure...
    Luna: Leave It To Me PUNCH!
    Renton: My spirit is suddenly ablaze with passion! LET'S GO!
    Eureka: YEAH!
    Space Black Knight: I'm done for! My newtype abilities didn't work!
    Leele: It worked so well... it's scary.

    Marin: I'll finish you off, Aphrodia!
    Aphrodia: Hmph. Did you forget already? You're not the only one with a Subspace Thrust system!

    That's right. Not only does Aphrodia have a barrier. Not only can she support other enemy units, with terrible results as these Hilarious Outtakes will show you. She too has a 50% chance to automatically dodge any attack. Well, on high enough morale, anyway.

    But that changes nothing. Invaders will be defeated, fair and square.

    Duke: Prepare yourself. Double Haken!
    Holland: Listen up, giant monster parrot! This is how Gekkostate rolls, we won't take crap from anyone. Now, die!
    Setsuko: Last enemy remaining. Sorry, here I go!

    Touga: Gravion will eliminate the hostile battleship. Everyone, focus.
    Mizuki: I see it! You'll be able to hit it from here.
    Touga: Right. Graviton Tornado!
    Luna: Punch! This is the power of a drill!
    Aphrodia: Aah! Get us out of here, helmsman!

    Skill Point, get! And we didn't even lose anyone. Hilarious outtakes do not count.

    Duke: I am glad this ended alright. But now, I must go.
    Marin: What, are you leaving us already?
    Duke: Yes, I still have to find my reason to continue the fight. Stay strong, Marin Raygun.
    Toby: Glad we could see you again, Duke Fleed!
    Setsuko: We will tell Kouji you're alive and fine.
    Duke: Thank you. Let's leave.
    Hikaru: Make sure he behaves, okay? I know Kouji can be a troublemaker sometimes.


    Gattler: The S-1 force was destroyed. However, it was only a scouting unit anyway. I am not concerned.
    Butcher: Good! If you lost your armies to some ragtags over and over, well that's no good.
    Teral: Like you do all the time, right?
    Butcher: Ooh? Did you say something?
    Teral: Nothing at all, Butcher the Killer.
    Butcher: Ohoho! Since we have a new member of our hellish alliance now, let's play a game. Yes, a game.
    King Vega: I have no time for games. I need results. Is it true that Duke Fleed was in that area?
    Gattler: Apparently he was...
    King Vega: Good! I can't wait until I squeeze the life out of his throat.

    Teral: Sir Gattler, I'm glad you are more humane than these two. Acting for your race's survival... that's noble.
    Gattler: Yes. I would not work with them willingly if I had other choices.


    Toshiya: Hey everyone! I am home.
    Minako: Toshiya! I'm glad you're safe and unharmed! It would be terrible if something happened to you! I'd cry myself to death!
    Rie: That's... too clingy...
    Julie: We're back, professor. Did you need us for anything?
    Kazami: I am glad you returned, but no. I do not need your duties for anything other than to protect us from all the invaders. Our last project was to complete the Baldios, and thanks to Sandman's funding we finished on time.
    Getsuei: If we don't develop any new units now, let's work on upgrading old ones.
    Toshiya: Then, how about a Shining Fing...
    Kiraken: You want to get sued?!

    Raita: Hey, Marin. I want to tell you something...
    Marin: Baldios needs repairs. I must go now.
    Raita: And there he goes... damnit.


    Oliver: Don't worry. He accepts your apologies. I'm sure he does.
    Raita: How can you be so sure?
    Oliver: I can't. But we're not stabbed or shot yet, so he can't be holding a grudge.


    Holland: Heh, good we decided to come visit, huh?
    Queenstein: Indeed. Otherwise, we'd be in trouble. Thank you, you are really like a defense force for the Trinity City.
    Holland: Us? Don't be ridiculous, Gekkostate goes where it pleases! We have nothing that tethers us to the ground!
    Matthew: Say what you want, Leader, but some of our guys seem pretty happy to be here!

    Renton: Miss Setsuko...
    Setsuko: Yes?
    Renton: I have a question... who is this man who is always with you? He wears similar clothing, too, so is he your brother or?


    Toby: Oh, you mean me? I'm just Setsuko's partner. We knew each other for a long time and we're best friends together. Or maybe... even a bit more, if you catch my drift. I saw you blush around, so sorry to shatter your dreams - but you got no chance, kid.
    Renton: AAAAH! My heart is broken!
    Setsuko: What were you two whispering about between yourselves?
    Toby: Hehe, it's a secret. Secret.
    Setsuko: Really? Oh well... see you later, Renton!
    Renton: I am in despair. Romantic incompatibility has left me in despair!
    Eureka: Renton, are you alright?


    Intermission time!


    Next mission: And most units are once again in plot teams. Some are not, but there's enough of them for two squads so nobody gets left behind.


    Aphrodia left her Barrier behind! It's a very powerful defensive item. It reduces damage taken by 1000, and works on other members of the squad if they stay close together (read: not in Wide Formation). Whom should I give it to? Tell me if you got a favorite! Until then, it goes to Grankaiser.


    Baldios is ours! Upgrades, upgrades. And there goes all our money. Again.

    That's it!

    Next chapter: The real objective of this mission... fails! Betrayal! But unexpected allies make an appearance!

    AFRICAN BEAM!

    Baldios is a fun robot. Not the most awesome thing in this game but it's very hard to dislike, and its theme is cool.

    You know what is not cool, though? Not having Garrod as a squad leader. I hope this won't happen again.

    Well, Grankaiser does seem like the best one to give the barrier to.

    Also unlike most old school super robots i actually like Baldios. It is somehow less silly than the others. And Aphrodia is really cute, which counts for a great deal too.

    Ladies and gentlemen, we now have a Super Robot that is too awesome for flight. This is a really good payoff for how many times we've seen Blue Fixer get shot down or scared off with minimal effort from the baddies.

    Well, Baldios is from 1980, so it's not from the seventies school of very old super robots! But, on the other hand, Godsigma is from 1980 too.

    I think the coup could be stopped if the emperor didn't wear such a ridiculous hat. Not exactly the most respect-inspiring headgear, that thing.

    Manned rocket punches. Apparently Gravion was made by orks.

    Will Renton's torment ever stop?
    No.

    Well that emperor still has more self-respect than Prime Minister Borg. I'd try to find a picture of him, but i can't seem to track down any.

    By S-1 customs, only one non-lame piece of headgear can exist at a time, and so it happenes that Aphrodia had it instead of the Emperor.

    Okay, that was a lie.

    Well, we also had Big O earlier. Yes, I understand the difference between "cannot fly" and "doesn't fly, but teleports between dimensions".

    Welcome back, Cubey.

    Pity Setsuko got so little screentime, but Baldios is awesome. That does make up for it fairly nicely. Also nice to see Grendizer again, even if it's only for one mission.

    Finally, I agree that Grankaiser seems like a good choice for the Barrier, since he doesn't seem as good as the other Supers at tanking hits without becoming Gravion, and most of the Reals are quite good at dodging. Might be a little tempted to give it to Garrod and crew, though.

    Funny that you mention it, because...

    No, I won't spoil. I did play the next mission already, though. And it's nice to see it's as tough as I remember it to be. Expect an amusing ride, especially since its difficulty is not its only defining factor.

    When you get Katz, I recommend you toss him in the Turn A for laughs. Loran honestly isn't much better anyways. Also, fully upgraded Borjanon.

    Also, yeah, Gran Kaiser definitely needs that barrier, and maybe an armour module or something. There's a couple missions where it gets picked on pretty badly.

    Loran looks better than Katz. In a dress, I mean. Now you're picturing Katz in a dress. Sweet dreams.

    Fully upgraded Borjarnon reminds me of Gundam 0080. This is a pretty amusing idea. I might do it if I have enough spare money and lose my mind decide to spice the LP up a bit.

    As for tough Supers, I found Godsigma to be the best defensively. Unlike Baldios, it has a sword AND a shield, and Toshiya's skill is high enough to use both often. And of course, there is the Big O.

    I managed to save both Stella and Four on my first playthrough. It requires very specific decisions but somehow I did it. Of course, if you are forced to choose only one between the two, then the choice is obvious...

    I just noticed that I called dr Quinstein "Queenstein" a few times. Maybe nobody noticed, but I did.

    Well, update time. We're in for a fun update, we are. I remember this chapter as being a pain in the ass, but of the fun variety if that makes any sense. And I remembered correctly.

    ===========

    Chapter 18: Bloodstained Eyes

    Where did Minerva and Argama go? Why, to the prinicipality of Orb, of course!

    Spoiler
    Show

    Talia: This is why I believe our cooperation would be very beneficial.


    Yuna: But I still believe that Orb is neutral. We do not need ZAFT and its alliances. You have nothing to offer us.
    Bright: The Federation has a dim view on neutral countries. In times of strife, nobody stays neutral for long.
    Yuna: Are you trying to force us into cooperating? Preposterous!
    Bright: No, I only say the Federation will.


    Unato: The Federation is too afraid to make a move on Orb. Our military is strong, Mobile Suits are developing, and with my son's marriage to princess Cagalli, the people will support us to the last man.
    Talia: Oh yes, I wondered why you were here, Cagalli.
    Cagalli: It's internal Orb politics. You know - being a politician now, I have actual duties now, even if I hate it...
    Yuna: Indeed! So do not bother my beloved Cagalli. The talks are over - I am sorry, but there is not a ghost of a chance of any kind of cooperation. Feel free to stay around for a while though.
    Bright: That is a shame. I will take my leave then.


    Unato: Fools. ZAFT will not only doom itself, but it wants to drag down Orb, too?
    Yuna: Don't worry father. Like you said, after the marriage, everyone in our country will love and support us even more. With everyone standing as one, Orb will never be defeated! Isn't that right, dear?
    Cagalli: Mutter mutter... if there was any other way to unite Orb, I'd punch you in the face just now...
    Yuna: Please speak louder! I cannot hear you over the sound of how awesome I am. Ha ha ha!
    Unato: Now, let's make sure our guests are properly "accomodated" for...


    Murrue "Maria": Oh, captain Talia. Is that you?
    Talia: Indeed. We saved your ship a while ago, didn't we?
    "Maria": Yes, we are safe and sound in Orb now. But you are not... please, hasten up with your repairs. The sooner you are ready to leave, the better.
    Talia: Are you saying we are going to be attacked?
    "Maria": Of course not! I didn't say anything. Anything at all. Hint hint.

    Talia wasn't the only one to "accidentaly" stumble upon interesting news.


    Quattro: Do you have my information?
    Informer: Yes. As you expected, Haman Karn started to take action. Neo Zeon made its move from the asteroid field.
    Quattro: So, the dice are starting to roll on the table...
    Informer: One more thing, captain.
    Quattro: I am no longer a captain. What is it?
    Informer: That man is here, in Orb...
    Quattro: Him? To meet him again after all these years... that will be interesting.

    Emma: I cannot say I've ever been to Orb before. What a warm place!
    Lunamaria: Well, me and Shinn lived here for a long time, so we're kinda used to it.
    Reccoa: Speaking of Shinn, where did he go to? I saw him disappearing a while ago.
    Lunamaria: Probably... well...
    Kamille: Angsting again, huh? That can't be good.
    Rey: Wait, we have company.
    Reccoa: That officer? He was observing us for a while now...




    Todaka: Captain Todaka of Orb navy. You are with AEUG and ZAFT, are you not? I have a message for you.
    Rey: Yes, what is it?
    Todaka: You should leave our territory as soon as possible. I personally have nothing against you or your agenda... but I am not everyone in Orb. Consider this a warning. Orb is peaceful, and I want it to stay that way.
    Emma: Well, isn't that nice? Nothing to cheer up your day like a threat of violence.
    Todaka: I'm not threatening you, I want to warn you.


    Kai: Officer! Hey, mr Officer! Could you spare a few minutes of your precious time?
    Todaka: Sigh, this guy again...
    Kai: Please comment on this: There is a rumor that Federation's political prisoner is held here, in Orb! Considering this, can we really call the principality a neutral ground?
    Todaka: I have no time for this, excuse me.
    Reccoa: Kai Shiden. I could recognize that mug anywhere.
    Kai: That's me. Phew... you'd thought searching for truth would be easier than waging war, but no luck. It's just as tiring, and only slightly safer. Hey, is Emma with you?
    Emma: Ahem, I was here the whole time.
    Kai: Frau Bow and the kids send you greetings. They're doing fine... but here, I'll just give you their letter. Hayato says hi too. Speaking of him...
    Kamille: Is this about the anti-Federation group Karaba?
    Kai: Shh, not so loud! Here's a thing they discovered: Amuro Ray is here.
    Kamille: WHAT?! THAT Amuro Ray, here in Orb?!
    Kai: Dammit, I told you... not so loud...


    Shinn: Mom, dad... Mayu... I'm here now. I'm sorry I couldn't protect you. I wish I was stronger...
    Obviously Kira: So, this is your family who rests here.
    Shinn: Huh, who goes there?
    Kira: I'm nobody important. Just taking a walk... I'm sorry about your loss. A lot of people died during the last war.
    Shinn: Well, I gotta carry on, for their sake. I'll get strong and live my life for the fullest so they will be happy in Heaven! Huh, a message? ! I... gotta go now!
    Kira: There he goes. Well, it seems he didn't recognize me... but he seemed cheerful enough. Good.


    Lacus: That's not true, Kira. His heart was crying.
    Kira: Really? Maybe I should suck less at reading emotions...

    The last line was a lie. Kira Yamato would never admit to something like that.

    Anyway, our heroes make a heroic... escape from Orb.

    Arthur: The coast is clear. It seems we made it safely, captain.
    Torres: Federation units detected just ahead!
    Bright: Damn! Was it a trap? All units, deploy!



    Kamille: They even have a carrier... and what is that? I do not recognize that unit!
    Lunamaria: It looks like an UFO...




    Buran: The enemy must be surprised at seeing my brand spanking new Asshimar. We'll let them wallow in shock for a little longer. Hold the Garuda at bay, send in the Mobile Suit squadrons to weaken them first.


    Ben: Roger that.


    I'm not actually sure which one is the commanding officer here. Anyway, the Titans and other assorted Feddies are here, so time to shoot them all down. How much time do we have, exactly? 7 turns. Whoo boy. Something tells me these are not all enemy units I'll face this mission.

    To make it more fun, the stage is mostly water. My units hate water. It slows them down and makes beam-based weapons very ineffective. Let's just hole up on a single island, turning it into an impenetrable bastion.

    Bright: Here they come! All cannons, fire!
    Shinn: What are these new units, fighters? Whatever, taste my beam saber!

    Some of the enemy squads come in tight formations. Let's act quickly before they can use that for their advantage! And by advantage, I mean death by TRI attacks.

    Kamille: I'll take the lead! Follow up on me!
    Apolly: That enemy squad is still going. What do we do now?
    Quattro: We'll fix that. Attack, men!
    UF pilot: Death by sidekick? NEVER!
    Talia: Capital ships, fire your ordnance!

    Somehow, we're holding up. The situation does not look too bad.

    Meyrin: New hostiles detected. They're on our back!
    Arthur: What, from Orb?!


    Rey: Astrays? No, it's a new model!
    Todaka: I don't like this... but it's a job that must be done. Lt Baba, make sure to avoid hitting their cockpits or generators.


    Baba: Roger that! I'll show them the power of Orb's transforming Murasame suits!

    Cliche lines aside, we're fighting on two fronts now. This could go really bad. Unless Murasame turn out to be real pushovers. But to be on a safe side, let's blow the whole thing up.

    Talia: Tannhauser cannon, prepare to fire!
    Buran: Heh, it looks like they want to shoot our capital ship down. I saw that coming. And we are prepared. Zamza-zah, deploy!
    Shinn: What, it's unharmed! Impossible! That's cheating!
    Kamille: It has some kind of focused barrier... but of this magnitute? I don't believe it!

    Federation pilot: What are you daydreaming about?
    Emma: We're under attack, Kamille. Look out from above!
    Kamille: Damn it! I got hit, too! Fine then, watch this!
    Shinn: I can fire beams all day, too. Woah, that Titan is going straigh at me!
    Buran: So this is how it's going to be, ZAFT's Gundam? Here, see what my Asshimar can do.
    Shinn: What, that attack? This sucked!
    Buran: You got lucky!
    Reccoa: Hey, less trashtalking, we're in trouble here!

    The Murasame units are attacking and they're not pushovers at all. Why am I not surprised?

    Baba: This is not over yet. All units, continue your assault!
    Orb pilot: Yes, sir! For Orb's future!
    Baba: Murasame Combination Attack!
    Kamille: Uwaah!
    Emma: This is Emma, my mobile suit barely works! Are you okay, everyone?
    Reccoa: I must punch out! The Methuss was supposed to be a super prototype, what's this!

    Post-movement TRI attacks are powerful. Especially when it's the enemy who has them. I'm lucky that I lost only one unit here, and that's despite the sidekick-protecting wide formation. The question now is, how am I going to turn the tables?

    Sagusa: How do we turn the tables, captain?
    Bright: Is the position correct?
    Torres: Yes, sir! All friendlies left our area of attack.
    Bright: Then, fire the Mega Particle Cannon!
    Quattro: I'll take care of the Orb commander squad.
    Roberto: We got your back, captain.
    Baba: Is that all? That's not enough to take the pride of Orb down!
    Shinn: How about this then!
    Baba: Not yet! I can still fight!
    Talia: The time is right. Tannhauser, fire now!

    Down they go - most enemy mooks are destroyed now. Unfortunately, what is left can still demolish my whole force if I'm not careful.

    Buran: I heard the Gundam's pilot is a newtype. Come on.
    Kamille: Not so fast! Kamille kick! Shoot! Flying Armor Crash!
    Baba: Murasame Combination attack!
    Talia: That's annoying... but you're wide open now.
    Arthur: What do we do?
    Talia: Tannhauser, what else?
    Baba: Argh! That's it for me!
    Shinn: What, my sword can't break through this shield?
    Zamza-Zah pilot: Good luck using anything on this Mobile Armor. The barrier is invincible!

    Quattro: Focus on one target at a time. Sink the orange mobile armor!
    Apolly: That wasn't such a good idea, the Rick Dias just took a huge hit!
    Shinn: It's okay as long as you don't die! Fire, fire!
    Buran: Not yet... close but not yet!
    Kamille: I have him in my sights. Crash!

    Buran: My Asshimar! Looks like it's time to retreat...
    Shinn: Nice, Kamille! My turn! I'll take down the green one!
    Zamza-Zah pilot: I don't think so.

    Crash, burn.


    Shinn: AAAAAH!
    Lunamaria: Shinn! Hang in there!
    Zamza-Zah pilot: And now, for the finishing hit... gah! What hit me?
    Kamille: Black Gundam? Is it the Titans?
    Quattro: No... it's an ally.




    Amuro: I neutralized the Mobile Armor's barrier. Quick, strike now!


    Katz: I'm here too! But this cockpit is too cramped for two people!
    Amuro: No helping it, it's the only way I could've run away from that holding cell.
    Shinn: My power's almost down... I don't think I can do it.
    Amuro: Get yourself together! Focus now, you have a special power. I know you can unlock it. I can sense it. You cannot run away now.
    Shinn: Can't run away... can't run away... screw this catchprase, it's not mine! I'll do things my own way! Are you trying to start another war?!

    SEED mode activated.

    Shinn: RAAAAARGH!
    Zamza-Zah pilot: What just happened? I cannot hit him? It's like a totally different pilot!
    Meyrin: Shinn, what is happening?!
    Talia: Meyrin! Quick, send Shinn the sword pack!
    Meyrin: Y.... yes!
    Shinn: I'll exploit its weakness - giant blades! Massive damage attack!
    Zamza-Zah pilot: What! Impossible!

    Quattro: Amuro? You're inside the Gundam, aren't you?
    Amuro: Yes. So we meet again. Char.
    Quattro: We'll talk later.
    Amuro: Right. I'm taking temporary command of the Zaku squad. Amuro Ray, nice to meet you.
    Kamille: Amuro Ray really IS here! Am I dreaming?

    You are not, Kamille. You are not. The hero of One Year War is on our side now, and he kicks ass. Also, because we spared Emma's black Gundam mk II about 15 missions ago, he uses it now rather than a red Rick Dias. Not that he couldn't make any unit work for him. Why? Because he's the frickin' Amuro, that's why.

    Oh, and Katz is also here, I guess. He doesn't pilot a mobile suit at the moment, but it's not that his presence would make any difference.


    Buran: Insane Newtype and who-knows-what tricks... I'm outta here. We'll meet again!

    Shinn: All that is left is to finish the green one!
    Zamza-Zah pilot: I only wanted to pilot a cool machine!
    Shinn: You won't run away! You're done for!
    Amuro: Wait!
    Kamille: Shinn! Woah, what just happened?
    Zamza-Zah pilot: Aaah, I'll run away now! Please don't kill me!

    Shinn: What the hell did you do that for?
    Amuro: Don't you see it? You already destroyed his will to fight! If you killed him now, you'd be a murderer!
    Shinn: But... but...
    Lunamaria: Shinn, what is happening? That's scary...
    Shinn: I... don't know! Something came over me! It's unknown, but it feels so powerful... like if I was in total control.
    Amuro: Right, but with power comes responsibility to use it.
    Shinn: That sounds like something a comic book character would say.
    Rey: I do not want to interrupt your pleasantries, but more enemies are on their way.
    Talia: The Eldar, here?
    Meyrin: That's not all, Captain! Our friends are really close too!
    Garrod: Right you are! And in the nick of time, too!
    Raita: The damn S-1 aliens are with Eldar again? We'll have to take 'em all down!
    Amuro: Aliens... what kind of conflict did I get myself into?
    Shinn: Aliens, Federation or Orb - if you stand in my way, I'll take you down!

    The second, shorter and (mercifully) easier part of the scenario starts! Enemy survivors fled, for better or for worse.I don't get money or PPs for downing them, but also I don't have to waste time doing so.

    Amuro: Wingmen, spread out. Let's go!
    Space Black Knight: But I am Amuro! Or was it Char? What kind of paradox is THIS?!

    Titan-color Gundam mk II has the same systems as the standard one, except for Flying Armor Crash. However, Amuro is an ace pilot who can Attack Again if his skill is high enough (and it is). He also has Ammo Save, letting him squeeze more attacks out of every weapon.

    Also, it seems I made a good choice.
    Touga: My barrier is functioning correctly. Enemy attacks are ineffective.
    Eina: I am so glad, Master Touga!

    Hey, how much time left do I have, anyway?

    Ah, it's turn six. So this one and the other. I have two bosses to choose from - I destroy one, the other runs away. Aphrodia's unit has an A Adapter, and Ritsu's a Space Booster. I think we'll go with the former, and try to down as many mooks as possible, too.

    Shinn: Think about what you're doing!
    Aphrodia: You call yourself a soldier? Pathetic!
    Shinn: That's right! Call me names, this unit is the devil!
    Leele: Mr Touga, the Gravity Crescent is ready.
    Touga: We will attack immediately!

    Passive-aggressiveness aside, Shinn's attack was supposed to disable the Space Carrier. And it kinda succeeded - except that Vulcans lower dodging and not accuracy like I hoped. Oops. Let's continue with the assault, regardless.

    Garrod: Harmonica cannon, coming through! Make way!
    Toby: Time for Glory Stars now! Barley Scythe!
    Amuro: I'll use the beam rifle!
    Marin: Take this, Aldebaran! Bal Saber!
    Aphrodia: Damn Baldios! We cannot die here! If our mission fails, sacrificing our lives will be meaningless!
    Raita: I didn't know S-1 were so weak...
    Oliver: No, it's just that we are too strong.

    Kamille: The super robot people are a bad influence, everyone starts calling out attack names now...
    Reccoa: You're the one to talk!
    Toshiya: Bad influence? More like awesome influence! Let's go - Musouken! TOH!
    Quattro: Deploy from Argama and attack! Damn... not yet!
    Apolly: Who'd expect a giant jellyfish to be good in underwater warfare!

    That's not all for bad news yet. Right - we're in for an unpleasant surprise or two. Remember what was most annoying about Aphrodia? No, not her unit's Subspace Thrust. Her offensive support.

    Garrod: This is bad, I'm getting pounded here!
    Giant jellyfish: *jellyfish noise*
    Garrod: Watch out! Hehe! Perfect save!
    Aphrodia: Fire the missiles!
    Garrod: Kh, here? Bailing out!
    Setsuko: Oh no! Garrod, are you okay?
    Bright: Don't worry, we already have a procedure for recovering downed pilots.
    Reccoa: I'm "happy" to be its first test subject, captain...

    Amuro: Shield Block!
    Shinn: Sword Cut!
    Amuro: Not bad! Wait, this feeling... I'd better defend!
    Aphrodia: Too bad, I almost had him.

    Let's try to keep enemies away from her since now on. I don't like this kind of surprises.

    Aphrodia: Kill the traitor Marin!
    Ritsu: Kill the damn Godsigma!
    Mizuki: I'm sensing a pattern here... their threats should get more inventive than that, really.

    Last turn. Aphrodia's low on HP so let's kill all mooks first.

    Setsuko: I can't let you take over the Earth! Gunnery Carver, full burst!

    And for the final blow!

    Julie: It's okay, we have plenty of energy.
    Kiraken: So go wild, Toshiya!
    Toshiya: Here I go! Dynamic kill animation, GO!
    Aphrodia: All hands, evacuate! ... Again!

    Shinn: What am I exactly? Is this the SEED factor? But didn't Freedom's pilot have something like that too?
    Talia: As far as we know, SEED potential is genetic. Whether you have it or not, it's related to your DNA, only that.
    Lunamaria: Shinn...
    Kamille: Shinn, let's try to think about what happened here for a second...


    Shinn: AAAAAAAAAH!

    So, while Shinn is taking the whole event pretty well (or not), I am taking a different thing just as well.

    Two mobile suits downed? Really? I should be more careful.

    Garrod: Hey, I want the barrier the next time!

    Friendly units shot down: 5

    Amuro: Are you going to blame me, Char? For doing nothing during the seven past years? That's right, I just hid from it all. I had enough of war, so I hid and pretended nothing happened even while the Titans' grip grew stronger.
    Quattro: No. I will not let this weight me down, like gravity weighting down the people who live on Earth. As long as you are helping AEUG, you are an ally of mine.
    Amuro: I see. Good to see you after all these years. For the first time as a friend, not an enemy.
    Quattro: Heh, maybe.
    Kamille: Mr Ray, the captain wants to see you on the bridge!
    Amuro: Alright, let's go.
    Kamille: My name is Kamille Bidan, by the way. You are a great inspiration to me, and many others too.
    Amuro: A personal hero, huh? I'm flattered... too bad not everyone thinks that way. In fact, if they did I wouldn't be here now.
    Kamille: What do you mean? You're the hero of the One Year War!
    Amuro: Yes, but the Federation is afraid of Newtypes. We are not known, and what is unknown is detested and feared. I could barely move from my own house without surveillance, and even the inside was full of spies. And recently, I was unceremoniously moved to an Orb holding facility. No, a prison more like it. I suspect they were going to experiment on me... but yesterday in the night, I heard a voice. Someone called out to me, and then the cell exploded. Outside, I found that black Gundam waiting for me. Karaba busted me out at the last possible moment.
    Kamille: That's quite a story. And it only makes me hate the Federation even more!
    Amuro: That wasn't my intention... hate the individuals, not people as a whole.

    Some time later, in a dark room.

    Shinn: Damn, is this really what I wanted? ZAFT Red, now some kind of SEED mode... but I'm still too weak.
    Kamille: Shinn, are you there? I'm coming in.


    Kamille: I know I'm not the one to tell people to stop angsting, but listen: try to cheer up. You didn't do bad today.
    Shinn: Hrmm...
    Kamille: And the SEED factor - nobody suspected you of having it, but it seems you do after all. Doesn't that give you strength you always wanted? You wanted to protect everyone, right? Now you can. Don't worry about it being "strange" or unknown to you. I am a Newtype and nobody has issues with that. It's not something we do. That's what the Feddies do.
    Shinn: You know Kamille, I never looked at it from this side.
    Kamille: I'm an engineer, different points of view is something I have to specialize in to keep a mind open for new ideas. Well, I will go now. If you feel better, go out and join everyone. Nobody wants you to sit in the dark for the whole day.
    Shinn: Mayu... I have the strength now. Do you hear me, Mayu? I will protect everyone. I swear.


    Kamille: Mission successful! Shinn should be alright now.
    Lunamaria: It really worked? Amazing!
    Apolly: It takes an angst-riddled teen to help another angst-riddled teen, huh?
    Kamille: Hey, I resent that.
    Luna: Oh, that's right Lunamaria. If you like Shinn so much, why didn't you go talk to him yourself?
    Lunamaria: I, uh... um! I wasn't sure what to tell him...
    Meyrin: But you two are childhood friends, you should know him better than everyone else, Luna!
    Minako: I wish Toshiya was my childhood friend... but no luck! Pfft...
    Toshiya: I am still a friend, childhood or not! A friend of everyone present here!
    Minako: That's not what I meant...

    Shinn: Hey, guys...
    Lunamaria: Shinn! Are you okay now?
    Shinn: I think I'll be alright.
    Touga: That is great! I am so happy for you. I never knew such depressive people existed, but I know now.
    Eiji: What a doofus... keep it up, Shinn. You ever feel down, we'll be there for you.
    Shinn: Thanks, Eiji.
    Reccoa: I have a weird feeling when these two talk with each other...

    Don't you love voice actor jokes? I can't get enough of them! Okay, okay. I'll stop now.

    But that's not all!


    Gidget: Hey, Holland! Look, a super-secret coded transmission for the Gekkostate.
    Holland: It uses the Reffer lingo to protect it from the Man, huh? Not a lot of people know this code, must be someone important.
    Gidget: Holland, you stopped breathing for a second! What's the message? Who sent it?
    Holland: Ex-ZAFT commander, the Desert Tiger. Andrew Waltfeld.

    Dun dun DUUUUN!


    Intermission time! Where I do... well, mostly nothing. I'm putting Katz in a spare Nemo. All units in the next stage are plot squads, so dunno why I really bothered.

    But like promised, Garrod will get the barrier. No more getting shot down for him!

    Hopefully.

    Next chapter: Weddings. Assassinations. Confessions. Reunions. Oh my.

    ===========

    The LP is returning to its normal updating schedule! The next chapter will be the last of the route split. Starting with mission 20, we get all my pilots back and then some more. Missions 20-25 are really entartaining, even considering the usual high SRW Z standards.

    Also, I'll update the character and organisation list a bit later today. This will include people who appeared earlier but didn't get an entry yet. And by that, I mean Kira.

    Yeah, Kai and Amufro. But you know what is bad? You let Garrod get shot down. That's very, very bad. I will let you-know-who know, and she will chibi windmill-punch you until you no longer feel your knees. A fitting punishment.

    But the credit award I got for shooting all the mooks down is greater than what I had to pay for X Divider's repairs! Garrod knows the value of money, he will understand.

    In related news, I recently acquired and partially edited a script of all the special dialogue of a certain stage, both Rand and Setuko's routes.

    That's interesting. Which chapter are we talking about? Does it include a character who really is far happier than he should be in his situation? Alternatively you can just give me the mission number, I'll know.

    Shinn: What am I exactly? Is this the SEED factor? But didn't Freedom's pilot have something like that too?
    Talia: As far as we know, SEED potential is genetic. Whether you have it or not, it's related to your DNA, only that.
    The series explains it soooo well.

    At one point someone told Kira he had "the seed", but that could easily be misinterpreted, especially since the guy saying it was a priest. Plus there was a brief mention of "Superior Evolutionary Element Destined factor" during a clip episode.

    And oh hey, I hear they were streaming Gundam eps, but the only series currently available are Wing and SEED Destiny.

    I didn't watch the series, so my whole SEED and Destiny knowledge is second-hand. Even if it's really good second hand.

    So, I'm glad that my improvisation makes more sense than canon explanations!

    So the long and short of this mission:

    The Federation are jerks
    Orb are jerks (except for people who are mysteriously powerless)
    S-1 and Eldar are jerks

    Battleship MAP weapons are awesome
    Amuro is awesome
    Shinn is...

    ...well, having Kamille around helps, at least.

    All major organisations are jerks? Welcome to Gundam!

    And yes. When Kamille is the one providing you with help and emotional support, you know you have troubles. Besides, look at this face.


    This is the face that has seen the worries of the world. Shinn looks just so miserable. You almost want to hug him. And then you remember what kind of a jerk he can be sometimes, and do not want to anymore.

    Speaking of Battleship MAP Weapons, I got the Nadesico's Y-Unit in SRW J the other day.

    Heeheeheeheeheehee

    I love my battleships in that game.

    Also, fun facts: Tenia is the ultimate anti-Gekigan-type pilot - Fury and Strike. Honestly for being the "melee" copilot, she's pretty damn useful in Bellezelute, Spirit-wise.

    MAP weapons in general are the love. My only major gripe with SRW K is how it did NOT have any, instead opting for those stupid Combo Attacks. If you implement a partner system, why penalize for using it? Grrr.

    @SAMAS:
    Okay, I expected a different mission but a friend of mine who reads this LP predicted it'd be this one. And yes, you have every reason to be excited because of this.

    W is, arguably, even worse. It gives MAP attacks to Tekkamen.

    But the Nadesico is so lame in W...even its upgrades are pretty terrible without pouring a ton of money into them.

    And Cubey, I could have told you it was mission 38. This file was posted on /m/, which is why our obscure-crap-loving mystery friend knew about it.
