[Well, time for another goodbye. Pit is there, grabbing everything they're going to be taking with them, trying very hard to keep a stuff upper lip and smile for everyone - and failing. His goddess floats around, noticeably more calm, with a pleasant smile. All's end that ends well, after all.]

It has been a pleasure. You all are the kind of humans you only find once every few millenia.
Well, guys... [Pit's voice fails for a moment] it-it's time for goodbye. Lady Palutena says she doesn't know how long it... it will be until she can open another portal. So it's goodbye for a long time. [Pit clearly has prepared this beforehand. That's not how he usually speaks] It's, it's been really fun, and... I'll miss you all. Please take care, okay?
Oh boo hoo. [And here's Viridi for the mood breaker] It's not like they're all going to die or anything. This is your stupid happy ending you fought so hard for, Pit! At least have the decency to look happy!
Shut up, Viridi! Don't you have any feelings?!
What, for leaving this pack of losers? No way.
Is that why you spent almost all your remaining power to help their planet before we went? It's going to take you centuries to be back in full shape after all those stunts, you know.
SHUT UP!

[Pit manages to laugh a bit through the tears. Still, he probably could do with a goodbye hug or twelve. Want to help?]

[The world has been saved, hopefully for the last time in a long time. The celebrations - and the mourning - have started, and in a lot of places are still continuing. But the victory isn't the only thing to celebrate - and with a lot of help, and a lot of favours, Laura and Lily have extended an invitation to the Chalice crew, past and present, to join them. If you were nearby, chances are the invitation was hand-delivered by a dutiful Servbot.]

1. The setup
[With the looming deadline of the closing portals, things move quickly! Invitations are sent, travel is arranged, a venue is prepared. What had been the White Chalice's Arboretum - now an open-air grove in what's set to become a lush forest - is the site of the ceremony itself, while the celebrations afterwards will take place in Gucun. There's a lot to be done to make ready. Are you helping, or seeking out one of the brides beforehand?]

2. The ceremony
[It's only fitting that Captain Smith should officiate. He's waiting at an arch set up by the flowerbeds of the Arboretum, where the happy couple met, where Laura's tended her memorial to her friends from before the Chalice and to those who've passed on since. Between the Kwan daughters, Epimetheus, and a brace of Servbots you shouldn't have any trouble finding your seat, even if Xue Yi is a little preoccupied ensuring Prometheus behaves. There's some time before the wedding party arrive, to talk amongst yourselves - or with some of the other guests present, who include Laura's overwhelmed-looking parents!]

3. The reception
[Of course, the real point of a wedding is the party afterwards! There's food, drink, and music - Miki pulled some strings, and Pit's showing how Skyworld does catering. After the recent battle, perhaps this is a chance to see some long-absent faces in more peaceful circumstances, or to say goodbye. Or are you just here for the embarrassing speeches?]

[This is a joint mingle post, open to dropped and retired characters as well! For all prompts, please specify whether it's Laura/Lily you want to talk reply, or others!]

Man, I'm so excited! We have almost beat all the bad guys already, Lady Palutena! Just a bit more, and then celebration party!

[Well, someone is in high spirits even though he's packing]

Indeed. Make sure you don't forget anything, though. Did you get your toothbrush? Spare crown? Feather polish?

Geez, Lady Palutena, I'm not a cherub anymore, you know. I can pack on my own.

[Pit and Palutena chat merrily while packing stuff. It should be noted that Pit seems to be "requisitioning" a bunch of the kitchen supplies, tossing all sorts of into a huge green bag bigger than himself]

Hmmmmm... think anyone would mind if we took the oven? It's so much handier than the cookery at Skyworld, I kinda wanna bring it when I leave.

They were just going to dump this module, so far a I'm concerned, knock yourself out.

Point. Alle-hop! [And he pulls the large overn out of its socket and tosses it into the bag as well. Angelic scrounging in progress, please mind your head]

2

[And while everyone is packing, what is Viridi doing? Well, she walks into the Arboretum with a grumpy face, smacking one of the automated systems taking care of preparing the Arboretum for offload into the wall while she's doing so.]

Scram, pests. You'd just ruin half of it. Good thing I'm here. Sending robots to do this. Pft.

[She then stands at the very center of the Arboretum, she slams her staff against the ground, which trembles in sympathy. The alarms go off on principle, but she doesn't seem to care. Instead, she breathes, and raises her hands, filling the entire area with amber-colored light]

Earth, RISE!

[And with a huge shake and a deafening CRACK sound, the entirety of the dirt and ground in the arboretum breaks loose and begins floating, a small flying island full of trees. It then begins to maneuver outward, with the chibi goddess at the helm.

Marvel, go WTF, point out that Viridi is kind of making off with our Arboretum, panic because you were caught on the Arboretum as this happened?]

[Clear the deck - on an unoccupied part of the Chalice's hangar, a magic circle appears with a ringing, ticking sound. It remains just long enough to let anyone in the area get out of its radius, then vanishes quietly - and in its place is a figure in a white cloak, one who might look familiar, and yet not, to some of the crew. She looks around briefly before summoning a screen in the air before her, connecting to the ship's network.]

Everyone - I am Agent Fate Testarossa Harlaown, representing the Time-Space Administration Bureau. I'm here to lend assistance and support Captain Takamachi. I hope together we can overcome the troubles this planet faces.

And to those I've met before, I'm glad to be back.

[Well, today's the day. The team assembled to head back into Pit's world and meet Dyntos will go through the portal today. The portal is created in the hangar, with Viridi holding this side of it.]

goddess_duet: How are you even this dumb human (Viridi What)
[personal profile] goddess_duet
1

[A short time after the latest mission, you might find a rather unusual sight walking the Chalice's corridors...]

So this is the cave you humans live in? Ugh. It's so ugly. How can you live with so little life around you? It's all metal and sharp corners.

I have no idea how Palutena stands it.


[Yup. It's Viridi. Wait, what the hell is Viridi doing here? The blonde goddess is just walking around with her staff like she owned the place. Want to intercept the former enemy?]

2

[It seems the tiny goddess has found the Arboretum, and is looking at it.]

Now THIS is more like it. An island of life in the middle of all that lifeless machinery.

[You might notice that as she walks, under her feet flowers sprout, withered plants turn green again, and even the grass grows taller and healthier] I guess there must be someone in this entire ship who doesn't have nails for brains. I'm going to rest here a bit. I have SUCH a headache.

[She then taps a tree, which bends down some branches and makes a soft place for her to lay down and have a little peace. Want to bother and/or share her place?]

[Warning note: Viridi has been enormously depowered by her stunt, so she's at about a tenth of her usual power. This means she's still about as powerful as Palutena, and a lot grumpier, because she's in a terrible mood today. Approach with care if you don't want to end up turned into a pumpkin for the rest of the day!]

[So we're at Kamogawa again. And that means it's time not only to visit some wellknown people, but for some touristing! Especially for those of us who are from another world entirely!]

1 - At the beach

[If you go down to Kamogawa's beach, you will be easily be able to find Pit trying to build a sandcastle. "Trying" being the operative word here, since right now it seems to be little more than an indistinct mound of sand with a flag. He looks rather defeated.

The reason it's easy to find him, though, is mostly because he's a couple meters away from another sandcastle. Which happens to be the size of a small apartment, and have towers, floors, balconies, and if one looks very close actual tiny sand soldiers in the battlements. And a humming Palutena in a swimsuit floating a bit as she puts the finishing touches on the center tower and putting a small flag on it that looks like a chibi herself.

Someone want to give poor Pit a hand, or poke in?]

2 - At a fast food restaurant

[After some more bathing, the two divine visitors end up going for lunch at one of Kamogawa's fast food joints. When Pit comes back from the bathroom to see what his goddess has ordered, he thanks her and starts eating]

Yum! These things are great! What are these, Lady Palutena?
Buffalo wings, actually.
Well, they're great! [Beat] ...wait, did you say buffalo wings?!
Indeed I did.
Do they have winged buffaloes in this world?!
Oh, you didn't know? Sky buffaloes. They're really beautiful animals, and very good fliers.
[Pit looks at the thing in his hand in amazement, and then puzzlement] This looks kind of small to let a buffalo fly, though. And it kinda tastes like chicken.
Yes, they're small, because the Sky Buffalo has several dozen wings, and it flaps all of them to stay aloft. That's how you can get so many of these bowls from a single buffalo.
Aaaaaahhhh. That makes sense! [What, no it doesn't, how are you so gullible, Pit]

[Want to happen by, either to unravel the web of lies or to bind it tighter?]

1) [Please keep this one to one tag. There are PLANS for it. BIG PLANS.]

[One of the Chalice's many rest breaks. They managed to get a quaint little beachside town, not much really happening here. Maybe you're taking a break, maybe you're going for a walk along the beach, or getting a snack or just buying trinkets and odds or ends. Whatever the case you see plenty of these guys too.]



[What's weird is that... despite their masks and hats, they were actually dressed like stereotypical tourists, and the townsfolk weren't at all bothered by their presence. Though...]

...? Chalice?T...that means...

KUROU DAIJUUJI!!!!

[That's right. The moment the minions of the Black Lodge spotted you they dropped EVERYTHING they were doing and fled in a panic, screaming their heads off. Notably drawing more looks. Whatever they're doing here, it possibly isn't any good. You may need to chase after them. Also note that rather than menacing the populace they were just having a good time before you show up... so do be careful with how you act.]

(OoC: A good part of the chase will have banter between the pursuers. I'll have an interjection in when I think its a good point.)

2) (COMING SOON. WILL TAKE PLACE AFTER PROMPT 1)

[As the title says. You now have one purple-haired goddess standing in the hangar, not at all looking glum after the uphill battle that just ended.]

Howdy guys! I did say I'd be back, and here I am! Your purple pudding pal has returned!

[But she isn't alone. Standing quietly right next to her is that tiny Super Robot she summoned during the fight - its arms crossed like a bodyguard. All it needs are a pair of shades.

And that's not all...]

Oh, I brought some backup with me too. C'mon over here and say hi, guys!

The rest behind the cut )

[Suddenly, for a bunch of people around the Chalice, whatever they are watching on a nearby screen goes into static - and out pops Palutena's face instead, looking unusually serious]

What do you know, it worked. Sorry for the startle. I know it's a bit supervillain-y, but making appearances to many people at the same time in your world is difficult - cameras are easier. Anyway, can I have your attention for a couple minutes?

[Well, given the screen refuses to show anything else, it's not like she's giving a lot of options. The camera turns, to show... the Moon, shining like always. Seems dumb to interrupt for this!]

Seems normal, right? Well, check this out.

[And she turns the camera's point of view about thirty degrees to the right... where there seems to be another moon. There's clearly two moons on the screen. And going to check out of a window clearly shows that it's not a trick - either your eyes are lying to you or there are two moons in the sky at this moment.

Are you one of the people contacted, and if so, how do you react?]

[OOC: This is a premission log happening before tomorrow's mission. It's not limited to the people coming to tomorrow's mission though (though those are especially welcome). Palutena just wants to tell people and get volunteers for tomorrow's mission]

[Lately, Pit's been even more active than usual. Wherever something needed doing, Pit was there, lifting, mending, cooking, and generally being his happy little self, only even more so.

So if you're needing help with anything, be it fixing stuff after the latest battles, or simply needing a partner to spar with? There's a pretty good chance that this guy is about to stride over and try and give you a hand somehow (results not guaranteed). Are you?]

2

[Later, though, you might run into him in the kitchen while he hasn't seen you. And you might notice he seems a bit more out of it.

The sigh would be a hint. The absent stirring of the pot also would be a pretty good clue. But it's the fact that he doesn't seem to be noticing his toga touched the kitchen five seconds ago and has caught fire that is definitely a dead giveaway.

Warn him?]

Oi, Oi, OI! That's not how my Borot is meant to look!

[For those who haven't already met him - of which should be quite the vast majority - there's a strange guy standing in the hangar right now. He seems dressed like some of high school student, but has a hard hat on and is yelling at engineers as... a pink dome is lowered onto a portly robot's body? Doesn't look too great either...]

You've got the head facing backwards! And don't tell me you can't tell, it has thumbs!

[He's also being rather loud. Dare to approach?]

[Mad's been keeping to herself for a while. Working as quietly as possible whenever she helped out in the hangar, snagging a few books to read in the arboretum. Even her studying has a minimal amount of cursing in comparison to her usual attempts to understand the horrors of mathematics.]

[You manage to catch her as she passes through a corridor though Do you try to talk to her?]

[2]

[Mad's standing out on the observation deck of the Chalice, arms folded and watching the skies as the ship moved ever onward. She's been doing this quite often ever since Resnick's last rites, keeping silent all the while she was out there. The winds have been particularly chilly of late, so she's taken to wearing a large scarf while she was out there. Interestingly something about how she wore it evoked a familiar image for some, it was probably a coincidence though.]

...

[She takes a deep breath and sighs softly, wondering what would come after the next fight... and her musings were promptly interrupted by a tremendously massive sneeze that almost sent her off her feet. She was stumbling lightly and rubbing at her nose though. Looks like someone caught a bad case of the sniffles.]


[3]

I..said I'm.. ff-fine damnit-AACHOO!!

[Amusingly, Mad's now bedridden - though not to the point she'd need to be stuck into the infirmary. Amusingly she looks very much like a petulant child as she's pulled her knees to her chest, pouting unhappily with a rather red nose - decked out in a particularly thick pair of jammies with the blankets tugged up and clutched to her hands. To top this image off the waste basket close by is filled to the brim with spent tissues.]

Stop looking at me like that damnit! Its not funny!

[Well at least she's talking to people again. Poke fun at her?]

[Pit's in the hangar, looking at the sprawled Cherubot with a pained face. The divine robot is laying there, deactivates, most of the chest plating hanging by a thread and spearks coming off several places. The poor thing has clearly seen better days]

Don't worry, Cherubot, buddy, we'll have you fixed up in no time!

...I hope

[2]

[Not much later, you'll find him out on top of the ship, shooting illusory targets that Palutena conjures as training (that the targets are little Viridis with evil teeth is probably a choice of the goddess). Still, it's pretty damn impressive to watch - he's clearly pushing himself, and the speed at which the illusions appear and are shot down while he dodges the fake shots makes him look like someone put an action movie on fast forward. Suddenly he skids and then brandishes a weird jewel at one of them]

Lady Palutena! [And as he calls out, a light beam sizzles through the illusion, vanishing it. Palutena clicks her tongue]
Hmmm. Still haven't gotten it right...
[Neither of them have seen you approach (or so it seems), though. Bother?]

[3]

[Pit and Palutena are walking down the corridor when you come into earshot. They were clearly talking about something]

-last of it?
Unlikely. If I had to make a guess, Viridi will probably still come back for a couple more rounds.
We took out her depot, though, right? That means at least she can't blow us up anymore.
I'm just hoping she doesn't spring anything even nastier on us... she's not to be underestimated, Pit.

[If you wanted to ask something, this is probably your best chance]

Hey, any room we can put this stuff? Last thing we need to do is put our gear in someone's parking spot and get it all run over.

[Out of nowhere, a mass of shadows solidified on White Chalice, and is now walking down the ship in humanoid form. 2 meters tall, menacing black armor with pseudo-wings, horned helmet, gigantic sword, evil glowing eyes... That's a bad guy if you ever saw one! And to make it all worse, he doesn't seem fully material...]

Where are you hiding...? Paragon!

[Stop him? Talk to him? Wait until he finds Raynor and join that thread?]

[And at some point of the day, Pit appears back in the hangar, in his Aether Ring. He looks kind of terrible, his tunic disheveled and himself seemingly having a variety of burns and scratches, his laurel wreath somewhat bent. Overall, he looks like a cat just out of a cat fight. ]

Man, that sucked. And I think I'm late anyway...

[As he steps out of the strange golden orrery, you might notice a kind of torn up and burned piece of... something, looks like there were flowers on it at some point, but now it's mostly brown and black.

Clearly, wherever it is he's been, today hasn't been Pit's day.]

[Loran has mostly just been hanging around White Chalice for a few days on his errand for the Heims, but nos he's pretty bored while waiting for his chance to get back to America. As such he's buried himself in volunteer mechanic work so that he doesn't completely lose his mind. Sure the robots and people here are interesting but he just likes keeping his hands busy more.

That said you'll probably see the white haired guy poking around fixing things or just moving about, since he's a wee bit restless.]

[Laura's assembled her squad of recruits - those she could invite, persuade, or cajole into volunteering to help out with her morale-boosting Valentine's Day plan. She's just carrying out her final inspection before unleashing them on the ship...]

All right! Everyone's ready? Your costumes are okay? You know what to do?

[Of course, she's not asking anyone to so anything she wouldn't herself! She's found a toga-like white minidress somewhere, and supplemented it with a halo, wings, and a toy bow with matching quiver of heart-tipped arrows. How good a Cupid costume has she - or even you, maybe - managed in your case?]

2. (mingle/open to all)
[And they're loose! A squad of Cupids are wandering the Chalice, picking up and delivering people's Valentine's gifts. Do you have one to send? Are you expecting one, or receiving one unexpectedly? Or do you just think the whole thing is ridiculous?]

[It's a Valentine's Day courier service! There's a meme to coordinate. Prompt #1 is for volunteers and people looking to laugh at volunteers. Prompt #2 is for people sending or receiving their Valentines as arranged on the meme. Have fun!]

[1]

[Pit's in the hangar - and so is Palutena, looking fairly worried (which is not very common in the happy-go-lucky goddess), but nonetheless clearly casting some magics on some of the mechs in the hangar. Those that had been half-turned into stone, to be more precise, starting with Cherubot. In a few minutes, the stone starts to crumble, revealing the original mech underneath]

Whew. Cherubot's all right!
Thankfully Though, don't ever mention to Lord Dyntos that we got one of his robots turned to stone, okay?
Don't worry, I'll be quiet as a tombstone! Get it?
...
..what, nothing? Not even a comment?
Hm, what? Sorry, I was distracted. Let's go fix the others, shall we?
...yes, Lady Palutena. [Pit speaks uneasily as he follows her. Palutena actually passed up a chance to snark at Pit's terrible attempts at jokes. She's worried indeed.

Want to talk to either of them, or thank them for putting your stuff back into place/de-eggplantify you yesterday?]

[2]

[A while later. You'll catch Pit coming back into the Chalice from a small sortie around in his Aether Ring - Cherubot is pretty shot up, after all. He jumps out of the weird contraption, wincing on landing, and talking to himself as he walks into the corridors with a step you can probably relate to "someone trying to walk in a way that won't make wounds hurt"]

Man, not a single hotspring in the whole area. And of course the portal's gone. Ugh.

[He sounds a bit grumpy as he mutters, most likely for reasons far beyond not finding hotsprings (why does he want a hotspring anyway?) Bump into him?]

[The large Christmas tree that has been set in the Chalice is looking wonderful. Tinsel and lights and motes of what looks like snow (yes, inside a closed room) dancing around. It shines brightly with lights and cheer...

...and there's a voice coming from the top of the tree]

This is SO boring.
Now, Pit, no complaining! [Palutena answers happily. She's at the bottom of the tree, putting some finishing touches on some glowing balls of light]
Yes, Lady Palutena...

[And looking up, on the top of the tree, there's, as is traditional, an angel. The thing is that this angel is not the usual glitter figure, but a real angel tied to the tree and making a T_T face]

How long do I have to stay here, again?
A couple days should do, I think.
A COUPLE DAYS?! Are you CRAZY?!
O ye of little faith. Do you think I'm doing this without a good reason?
N-no! I just...!
Good, then! [Palutena's voice is cheerful, but leaves no room for argument] Try to be cheery and festive while you're up there, will you? Come on, you've stood guard for longer than that! Flutter your wings a bit, ring your bell!
Yes, Lady Palutena...[And cue half-hearted fluttering. All the T_T]

[Are you going to comment on the... peculiar decoration? You can come during the conversation, or just see Pit alone up there later. He's going to be there until around New Year's Eve, the poor thing.]

[So thanks to a certain aspiring scientist, Pit has discovered the magic of... videogames! (Insert dramatic sound here). It's not hard to guess he's going to take to them like a fish to water...

[...so some time later you might find him in a corridor, talking loudly to a portable console]

...come on, Snuggles! sit! Sit! No, wait! I have treats! [The virtual pet, instead, decides to go away. Pit slumps his shoulders] Awww...
I guess pets really aren't your thing?
[Pit hangs his head even lower for a bit before shaking it and turning the console off, and putting in another game.]
Bah, whatever, that game was stupid and I didn't really want to play it anyway!
Suuuuure...
[He looks over the borrowed games] Let's see what else is here...

2

[Some time later, if you happen to pass by Pit's room, you'll find the door is open, and that he's managed to get ahold of an old console and connected it to the TV, and is playing it enthusiastically. More interesting, however, is that he's not playing alone - there's a beautiful, unknown greenhaired woman in a white dress holding the second controller.

And, from the sounds coming out of the room, apparently schooling his ass into next week.]

Oh come ON! You're totally watching my side of the screen! How did you even know I was there?
Oh, don't be a sore loser, Pit. It's just a game. [Her smile, however, expresses her satisfaction at winning pretty visibly]

...but he's spent the last twenty-five years of his life being the angelic equivalent to a combat butler to Palutena and fixing the continuous messes the Centurions and even his goddess make. He can't deal with idleness. He's been horribly bored and twitchy for the last few days, and in the end decided to screw it and help with all the chores to have something to do. Besides, he believes this counts as training! So you will find him...]

Seems to be something like that
Oh man, whatever human thought of this is a genius! Why didn't we think of making one of these? Having to beat everything by hand is so boring! Can I ask if they let me take one when I get back? Pleeeeeease?
[Palutena laughs] I don't see harm in it.

[Divergent development is a bitch at times. Gods aren't big on convenience items, seems... Still, Pit looks like he's having a lot of fun in the kitchen. Want to join him in cooking treats, or laugh at his ignorance?]

2

[...in the corridors, mopping around - supposedly. He's made some sort of mop contraption with a bunch of mops and a board, and he's basically mop-snowboarding through the corridor. Can't fault him for speed at least, though. He's done four corridors in the time it normally takes to do one.]

Careful down the corridor, cleaning in progress! Woooo!

[At least he's calling out in time for you to get out of the way - but better react quick or you're about to get a faceful of angel at high speed!]

3

[...in the landry room, with a hammer and saw and boards, knocking out some new shelves after the whole Mad laundry fiasco ruined the ones that were previously there. Pit has little idea about technology beyond using it, so he can't help the big repairs, but he's a deft hand at carpentry. He seems to be humming some sort of silly tune about an elephant while he works.

Bother?]

4

[...again in a corridor, this time frustratedly tugging and pulling at a bucket that's being pulled on the other side by a small metroid baby]

Give it back, you little alien magpie! I saw it first! And I need it to clean! And stop pulling, you're going to tear it apart!
SKREEEEEEEEE! [Roughly translated as "Yaaaaaaay, I found someone who wants to play! ^_^"]
I don't really think this is going to get us anywhere except one less bucket...

[A little help would probably be appreciated, here.]

[Yes, Pit may technically be High Captain and head honcho of an army, supposed to be treated with honors and generally on retain and free to do whatever unless there's an emergency...

...but he's spent the last twenty-five years of his life being the angelic equivalent to a combat butler to Palutena and fixing the continuous messes the Centurions and even his goddess make. He can't deal with idleness. He's been horribly bored and twitchy for the last few days, and in the end decided to screw it and help with all the chores to have something to do. Besides, he believes this counts as training! So you will find him...]

"To friends, comrades and fellow warriors: It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us in celebration of our Founding Day."

Everyone on the White Chalice would have received the invitation signed off by both Ranna and Resnick. A brief itenary has been included.

[1]

The day begins at the promenade, where both old and newly-inducted (from the Jade Falcons after the battle against the Invaders) Wolf warriors have gathered wearing Clan Wolf's dress uniform. Ranna and Resnick are at the front as a message is played:

"To all citizens of the Inner Sphere do I, Aleksandr Kerensky, send greetings.

Know that I have taken the remnant of the Star League Defense Force which has remained true to its purpose beyond the boundaries of the Inner Sphere, beyond the Periphery. I have done this, neither out of disappointment with those whom we leave behind, nor out of spite or disdain, as some will say. No, we have left the Inner Sphere because we love it too much to see it destroyed. In the wake of the Usurper's coup, and the long, bitter fighting that came with it, I fear that my forces would do incalculable, possibly irreparable, harm to our society. We are sworn to ward the Star League and its subjects, not destroy it.

Thus, we have left the only homes we have ever known to place the destructive capability of this armada beyond the reach of those who would use it, not for defense, but for conquest. Perhaps, with the might of our 'Mechs and ships out of reach, the leaders who now grapple with one another will relinquish their dreams of subjugating their neighbors and learn to live in peace with them.

Perhaps, one day, should mankind step back from the brink of the abyss, we, our children, or our children's children will return, to once more serve and protect and guide the Star League in mankind's quest for the stars.

Farewell."


When the message ends, all the present clanners bow their head and utter reverently, "Seyla." They then begin to mingle, share stories and socialise with each other and whoever is present.

[2]

Lunch at the mess hall is definitely more lively than usual - Food has been prepared and arranged on the tables buffet-style. Both clanners and non-clanners have contributed to the pallet available. There are rumors that Resnick himself was responsible for one of the dishes.

Feel free to try them out!

[3]

A flyby!... By a Jumpship. The deck is bustling with activities as a temporarily installed large screen shows the 300m-long Jumpship that had carried Ranna here, Keen Eye, doing a high speed burn near Earth orbit, its pletora of lasers lighting up the space around it (and pointed away from the planet, of course). The feed must have been taken by one of the aerospace fighters.

Drinks are served, both alcoholic and not. The mood is jovial under the night sky.

((This is a full-on holiday for the clanners. Feel free to interact with Ranna, Resnick, both and everyone else!))

HOLY SHEET! INVADERS! Innumerable Invaders are here to infect and eat your face. You will become one with the hive-mind crazed with power and evolution unless you start shooting back like a go-damn boss! There are hundreds of these things, and only so many of you.

READY!? GOOOO!]]

[Mad's lying down in the arboretum, trying to nap. Key phrase being TRYING. That mission she went on went wrong in so many ways and had far too many eyeballs for this hero to even get the chance to drift off... and HOW the HELL did those invaders turn themselves into FREAKING PUPPIES?!]

Argh... shit's messed up...

2)

[Mad's looking through the part of the Hangar where several of the weapons are kept. She's pondering... Maria needed more firepower. A lot more. But what to pick out?]

Man... times like this I wish I actually learned more about these things than their fucking controls...

[Because at this rate... if Mad did this by herself she'd probably end up smashing her own things.]

Where's that Lowe guy when you need 'em?

As Hayato Jin has outlined the Invaders for us, it is only fair that I do the same for the opponents we fought from my universe. What you met out there was not Clan Jade Falcon as we had originally thought. It was The Word Of Blake.

Let me briefly explain their history. Three hundred and fifty years ago in my universe, The Star League united interstellar civilization. When the Star League collapsed, two of its greatest institutions went their seperate ways. The Star League Defense Force exiled itself into the Deep Periphery, where we would become The Clans. The Star League Communications Service, which was responsible for faster than light communication throughout the Inner Sphere and Periphery, became Comstar. Comstar gradually developed a mystical bent, seeing technology as sacred and carefully guarding it against the ravages of the Succession Wars.

It is ironic that we would clash, but we two descendants of The Star League did, on the world of Tukayyid. As a result of the defeat of the other Clans, we signed a fifteen year truce. Primus Anastasius Focht began reforms of Comstar immediately afterwards, secularising it.

The more conservative parts of Comstar split off to become The Word Of Blake. They see themselves as holy warriors. Ambushes, killing noncoms, false flag operations, they do not shy away from any of these dezgra tactics.

That is our enemy. They intercepted the Jade Falcons and pretended to be them to try to lure us into a trap.

It was...only the quick thinking of Star Captain Ranna that prevented the jaws from closing around us.

[2: Action]

After the Blakists dropping artillery on their heads, Resnick can be found in the gym, pounding on the bag. He grunts with each shot that lifts it on its chains, rattling them. This is not a display of finesse and technique. It's a man letting off steam.

Hayato's face is broadcast to everyone on the White Chalice, but it doesn't stop there. The signal is being broadcast to every ship within range of The Tower's transmitters, and then by signal repeaters and the few remaining comm satellites to all the space colonies and all the rest of the Earth. Hayato's message is available and visible to just about anyone in the Earth Sphere.

"Many of you may know me, some as a hero or savior, some as a monster or murderer. Today, that doesn't matter. You all have been tormented by the Invaders for fifteen years now as we have struggled to live on the Hell that Earth has become. The fear of the Invaders only matched, in some of you, by the fear of the Getter that drew them here.

I tell you now, there is an end in sight. The Dragon that almost awakened fifteen years ago, during the Second Impact, has returned. The Invaders want it, for Getter Rays are like food to them.

I tell you all, we cannot let them have it, for that will be the end of our species. Following this message is a set of coordinates and a date a week from today. The Dragon is there, and we must make this our last stand to stop them from claiming it. I know humanity can band together against a threat like this. I know it because we have before, and we will again. This isn't the greatest challenge humanity will ever face, but it is a big one, so for once in your lives, remember that you aren't just Federation citizens, or Zeon Soldiers, or Fuso Warriors. We are all Homo Sapiens!"

[Know those Mobile Suit-shaped balloons that some pilots use as decoys? One of them is in the water behind White Chalice now, being tugged on a rope. And because the ocean is far from calm right now, the balloon is tumbling and crashing through the waves cheerfully.

And hey, a tiny human figure is riding on it!]

Ahahaha! That's one way to get over your fear of the sea!

[And after all that cluster disaster, the other pilots suggested to Pit he should visit the Chalice. He in truth did not take a lot of convincing, especially after being told maybe the Chalice mechanics could help poor Cherubot's singed armor - and maybe set the flight module right, it's kind of haphazardly stuck right now. In any case, he seems to be talking to himself in two voices as he jumps off his cockpit like the seven meters of Cherubot were no thing after packing the strange and bulky halo-adorned robot in a free space]

Man, those were some really cool mechs these humans use.
Indeed, they seem to have technology only the gods have back home.
I'll have to ask them how they work later!
This is just so you can add more weapons to Cherubot, isn't it.
...mmmmaybe... Anyway!

[And with that, he turns to the people currently in the hangar]

Nice to meet you all, my name's Pit! I'm an angel under the wise and radiant goddess Palutena!
Flattery is not letting you dodge the issue, you know.

[So here you have... what looks like a pretty fit fifteen year old with wings and in a toga and sandals and an honest-to-Zeus goddamn laurel wreath greeting you cheerfully while talking in a double voice - and the second one sounds like a woman's voice. And he says he's an angel of all things.

So yeah. Your day just got seriously weirder]
