[It takes mechanics to get the Mark Zwei open when it's brought back onboard the Tatsumiya Island sub.  The sight inside is both beautiful and horrifying; with so much of Ryo's covered in strange green crystals.  The Mark Zwei didn't stop the assimilation process, just drastically delay it.]

... I was a dead man even before I got in the Mark Zwei one last time.  And... I wanted to make these last moments, the most important of my life.

Everyone... thank you.  The L-Boat... Tatsumiya Island... we would not have survived if not for you...

[At any rate, he's moments from death.  If you have something to say, for the love of God this is your last chance.]

[And then it happens.  Maybe he was in the middle of talking with you, reassuring you that things were going to be alright or maybe you'd already made your peace with him.  But the crystals shatter, leaving nothing more than a fine dust.  And Ryo Masaoka is finally no more.]

[For anyone who decides to pay a visit to The Wall, you'll find that the entire length of it's been repainted over, and then in massive letting, absolute defeatest talk.]

We are all going to die here.  Every one of us.

[And not only that, there's Ryo, having grabbed another TSX pilot by the collar and... well for the first time ever, anyone present can see Ryo look furious.]

Why do something like this?  Hope of success is one of the things that's keeping this operation from being a failure!  We're halfway through the operation, and aside from that last attack-

That's rich coming from you, Ryo!  We're risking out live day in and day out!  And you're one to talk... you're the one using that new Fafner model... you know, the one who ISN'T going to kill you after only a short time of usage!  Besides, you ran away from the Island while the rest of us trained

You make it sound like I was just fooling around all day!  I was risking my life too to gather data on the TSX's performance!  The only reason those machines are working as well as they are is because I nearly killed myself using one!

Yeah, you did!  And you did it to get out of using one NOW, by picking and choosing when to fight!  Hiroshi's dead and Sumiko's in the hospital, just lying there!  The doctors can't do anything for them... but oh, your little friends from the Chalice; THEY'RE the ones that can be patched up good as new!  But it doesn't matter at all... you know why?  Because WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE-

[The pilot never finishes.  Abruptly, Ryo's fist comes crashing down into his face, all of his strength and weight put into it.  For one with such a sickly body, it's surprising that the blow completely floors the TSX pilot... but that's exactly what happened.  A moment later and Ryo himself falls to his knees, panting heavily as he glares at the fallen pilot.]

... This mission... it's going to be a success!  I never doubted that when I agreed to it!  We've fought tooth and nail and the people who are injured or who have damaged mechs can recover while others take up the slack!  Think about it for a moment...!  For a week, a whole week we've been fighting Festum!  And for that week we haven't been defeated... we're still here!  With no backup and no aid we've held our own against them!

That's reason enough to believe we'll make it home!

[Several hours had passed since the last Festum attack, Ichitaka had drifted in and out of critical condition. Being right next to his systems when they had exploded he was far from doing well when he was first brought into the infirmary. Suffering several burns, cuts,shrapnel embedded in him from the explosion, and a concussion.

Thankfully the medics on the L-Boat were some of the best within a few hours he seemed to have stabilized ,the Doctors sending him to another room to let him rest. Waking up next to coma patients wouldn't exactly be a good sight for someone who was just injured.

He wakes up in the middle of the night slightly confused.]

1) [Ever since that guy was sent to the hospital, Tohya has been spending as much of his waking time as possible fighting in Coustwell. Festenia as well. They are ignoring the scheduled shifts, and are commonly the first on the scene during a Festum attack. Tohya's complaining has also taken a distinctly different bent, mostly complaining to himself about how fucked up the whole situation is. If anyone comes out using a TSX, he contacts them and tells them he has this down, he will keep them from having to pilot as much as possible. He might not be able to save the island, or save everyone from the festum. But if he can save at least one pilot from being killed by their own Fafner, he will do that. Besides, for some unknown reason the Cytron seems to quiet the Festum's voice. He doesn't know why exactly, but he will take any advantage he can get.]

2) [Unfortunately, this takes it's toll. Now the Coustwell is in the hanger, missing both it's arms and there is an obvious black hole shaped piece of it's upper legs which is missing. Neither Festania nor Tohya is complaining. Instead they are both looking up at the unit. They are battle scars, and they survived, and for now that is enough.]

[[MarKus is cannibalizing the newly unmanned TSX model, breaking it down into spare parts. This and that he sets aside for Shirley, but most of the others, larger parts, are set aside and organized for compatibility with others. ]]


10:32 pm

[[MarKus starts working on Shirley's striker, even if she isn't around to consult.]]


1:11 am (Tuesday)

[[MarKus starts attaching two extra TSX arms to Imber's Pauldrons of Epic Rock Punching. Extra reach for the mecha that doesn't have any guns.


4:33 am
[[MarKus enjoys a sandwich while he directs a plan. Most of the mechanics about are cool with it, setting up spare Ruge Lances and guns about the deck, covered by plating. The other pilots won't know about it at least.

One mechanic mouths off, which he is promptly introduced to the hand MarKus is holding his sandwich. Now's he's double pissed.


8:01 am
[[MarKus finds it a good idea to start painting bands on ALL of the mecha onboard. Mostly in a color that stands out on the standard paint job. One band for each day. No, he didn't ask permission for this.]]

11:43 am

[[Again, without permission, MarKus continues his painting binge. Ryo's Mark Zwei is not a metallic orange. No, this wasn't ironic to being similar to the Festum, but to stand him out as the Ace. He is the reason they're all on this ship anyway.

2:44 pm
[[MarKus is logically MIA. The Technica is out fighting though. When it comes back...]]

3:34 pm
[[MarKus is back, and he's got it in his head to try and link up a Ruge Lance to the Type-T's systems. In the process he smashes his fingers with a wrench.]]

4:03 pm

[[MarKus is in the infirmary getting bandaged. He suddenly got the "genius" idea to blare music in there, juxtaposed to our comatose little friend there.

It's not waking him up at all.]]

5:38 pm
[[MarKus instructs an update of all the mecha's armbands. He's apparently got some serious props amongst the mechanics there.]]

6:42 pm
[[MarKus oggles Unit 04's massive... massiveness, while enjoying a sammich. He orders the Behemoth and all LUPUSes to be fully loaded.]]

No fucker. LOAD IT! Every fucking unit loaded, and if you can put one in the chamber you put ONE IN THE CHAMBER! [[It's almost time for another Rider Punch!... But the guy gets away without being decked.]]

7:21 pm

[[MarKus drags ass and gets to tuning Shirley's Striker again...]]

8:07 pm
[[MarKus proceeds to give the Strike Unit a fresh coat of DROOL. He's apparently passed out leaning over on it.]]

[Haruka's been discharged from the hospital. She's not started taking shifts piloting yet, but she has started doing regular exercise. If you've been by the pool at all, you've seen her doing laps back and forth. She's ran around the entire L-boat a few times already today, so you might have seen that.


There's not too much to do on the L-boat, especially if you're not working as a pilot. Haruka's time has been pretty much completely devoted to working out, eating, and sleeping.

Catch her mid-exercise, or during a break?]

[After what felt like an eternity Ichitaka, Haruka, Rushbird, and Imber were rescued by the L-Boat. While he was perfectly fine with volunteering to stay aboard it...even if at this point they didn't really had a choice. He couldn't help but worry about Haruka who was now being tended to by a medic...at least he hoped she was.

The Ichitaka now was a far cry from what he was usually like, for once he actually seemed legitimately depressed. In only a few days he had gotten his friend injured then stomped on her feelings after and gotten his machine wrecked even worse than before. While he wanted to go see Haruka as soon as possible he decided to wait a bit until he got the clear from someone.

Until then he was stuck doing maintenance on Rushbird on his own. Thankfully there were good enough instructions on the Rushbird's files however Ichitaka was getting more irritated as he continued to struggle on the repairs.

Having enough he kicked the arm of the Super Robot and left the hangar in a huff.

Taking a seat in the main monitor room the countdown still ticking down to when their mission would be over, at the moment however all Ichitaka was doing was being depressed.

He could use someone to talk to....]

[So much data to hand over to the the higher-ups in Alvis.  Combat performance, his own physiological breakdown due to using the TSX, reports that the Festum were acting as far out as the moon... And before long Ryo is back onboard the White Chalice, eyes just as red as ever, and now in front of a new Fafner]

I have good news and bad news for everyone.  But I'll start with the bad because the good news is in response to it.

The fact is, when we came down to Tatsumiya Island and they lowered the shields, the island gave away its positioninng.  The Festum probably know right where the Island is, and needless to say there's certain things here we cannot let them get their hands on.  We just came from a rough battle, I know, and most of us are not in any condition to fight... plus Ichitaka and Haruka are still missing.

The good news is there's a plan.  It was devised a while ago and we're goinng to put it into motion.  Tatsumiya Island's an artificial island, so we can submerge it and move it safely to another location.  The White Chalice and the rest of the fleet can stay with it and conduct repairs and we should be ready to go in a little while.

... In the meantime, a small portion of the Island, called the "L-Boat" is going to stay behind as a diversionary measure.  Pilots and technincians are going to stay, and they can hold off the Festum so they're never the wiser of the truth.  The only problem is they're dangerously short on pilots with experience fighting the Festum... or even just familiar with their psionic attacks.  I'm the only member of the Island who's faced them so I'm going to be there, doing what I can to help both on and off the battlefield.  With this new Nothung-model Fafner I should be able to pilot again safely... if only for a little while.

I can't and won't order anyone to go.  I don't have the rank, after all.  I want to believe we'll all make it back but at the same time I can't promise something like that.  But at the same time, I respect all of you, as well as your decisions.  If you want to come along, by all means do so.

[So yeah.  This is the IC post for people who want to "volunteer" their characters to go on the L-Boat route.  This isn't going to be sunshine and lollipops, so don't expect that.  But feel free to use this to say why/how your character is going on the L-Boat, interact with Ryo, whatever.]

[See Ryo.  See Ryo looking through security footage of his room during that one particular night.  For the most part it just seems like Ryo was hovering over a computer, doing some data analsysis.  But every so often things would flicker and suddenly change, depicting him talking to a short, somewhat cute but also unusual girl.  Not only that, Ryo's also double-checking past footage regarding the particular girl he saw that particular night, all of which has similar discrepencies.  And finally after coming to a conclusion he decides to take action.]

[Video]

It's come to my attention that the White Chalice has been... well, I wouldn't say targeted but definitely come under the attention of an unusual being.  I'm sure some of you have come across her already although I can't be certain, because it appears that the ship's cameras are rather reluctant to do their job when she's around.

Considering the world we live in and the things we've seen, especially since the incident on the moon, I think it's obvious she is more than what she appears to be.  Those of you who have seen her already will probably agree with me on this.

The issue at hand is that when she spoke to me, she offered a pact of sorts concerning my... condition.  Deciding to air on the side of caution I refused.  I have my reasons and though I'd understand if someone chose differently, at the very least remember that discretion is the better part of valor.

[It's late at night, and by all rights Ryo should be in bed sleeping by now.  Why isn't he?  Well he's looking over all the data from the TSX's sorties, along with everyone's data from the battle with the Festum.  Things have gotten ugly, and he's not sure if he'll last through another sortie in a Titan-model Fafner.  He's very much on borrowed time... and more than anything else he wants to put what time he's got left to good use.]

*Yurika's making an official announcement! The video flickers on, and she waves... as for why she's dressed as a miko, there must be some explanation for that.*

Hi, everyone! I know what happened on the moon was really terrible, and we tried our best to stop it, but we couldn't... As the captain of the Nadesico, I would like to have a moment of silence for all the people lost in the surprise Festum attack.

*A minute goes by. Once it's over, Yurika coughs.*

We're all really trying hard to pick up the work that we've had to do in the work of our narrow victory, and as the highest-ranking Nergal official here, I have a lot of contract obligations to fulfill after this, so...



Could you all please, pleaaaaaaaaaaaaase help me out with the funerals?

[As the wrecked TSX finally settles back onboard the White Chalice, Ryo is looking far from in high spirits.]

All those people... dead.   And it's been thirty years, and the closest thing we've got to  stopping them is...

[He looks back at his de-limbed Fafner, his eyes now fully red from the assimilation syndrome that went along with using it.  He had hoped to not pilot it except under extreme emergencies, and this certainly qualified.  With a trembling hand he reached up, pressing it against one of the TSX's legs and sighing.]

We need to get you back to Tatsumiya Island...

We need to make sure things like this don't happen again.

[After the sickbay is more or less devoid of other patients, or at least he presumes so, Ryo finally checks himself in following the battle.  The TSX got by without damage, but Ryo himself is a different story and he pulls up a seat before grabbing a nearby hand-mirror and taking a look at his face.  His eyes have been feeling a little achey and...

[Oh.  Although it's faint, several flecks of carmine are visible in his irises.]

... So it's finally happening, isn't it?

I should see is Loraine has some cosmetic contact lenses lying around.

[Ryo is currently in the hangar, inspecting the handiwork of the hasty job the mechanics on the White Chalice spent putting together a maneuvering thruster setup for the TSX.]

Fighting in space... I can't believe all this time such a need went unnoticed by Tatsumiya Island...



Though on the other hand, I should be surprised, should I?  The Fetsum came from space.  I suppose on top of everything else, you and I will have to battle out here too.

[So yeah.  Ryo's chilling in the hangar, thinking about what's going to come.  Feel free to badger him.]

Piloting in Zero-G is nothing like piloting on the ground. My assisstant [He gestures to Nameless NPC#82] has assembled some training material and useful information on the subject. If you have never fought in space, I would suggest you take this time to review it and get some training in.

Most of the place is a wasteland, and what's left is under attack by monsters bigger than anything I've seen so far... Something tells me Yapan Exodus didn't exactly expect their promised land to look like this. I wonder what they're thinking now...

Something about the Evangelions bugs me. Just what exactly happened at the end of the fight with the purple one? It looked like the robot was more in control than the pilot... In a way, those things seem to be more beastial than the Angel they defeated.

[Private, possible to hack]
Robot more in control than the pilot, huh? I wonder isn't that the same when I'm piloting Prometheus...
[/Private]

I've heard we're going to space soon. That's pretty cool, but with all the things happening on Earth right now, is it really okay to leave it behind?

[White Chalice's kitchen. A pot of water is boiling on one of the counters. The tiny robot that some might know under the name of Prometheus is jumping up and down, trying to reach it - but that's not an easy feat when you're just one foot tall. Also, a band-aid has appeared on its head recently for some reason. Approach? Observe? Help out?]

After all, one cannot be too careful when an accomplice of a person who robbed you is the one who helped you with your injuries]

[He sits on one of the beds available at Medical waiting for a doctor to give him a once over before declaring him fit or unfit for duty.]

[Told to whomever looks like a pilot and is willing to listen, or just was unlucky enough to stumble near Devon.]

Unlike Dantoinne, I have no delusions. This ship does not exist to save the world. Its priority is survival.

Regardless of its reason for existence, the crew will be drawn into combat. For one reason or another - with the world as it is, it will be only a matter of time.

To fight, you must be ready to kill. To kill, you must be ready to die yourself. Are you ready to die? Or see your friends killed before you?

[It's a one-way video message that arrived from outside the White Chalice. What could it be about?

For some reason, the video shows a handsome and athletic man. He's only shown from the waist up but appears to be naked.]

Greetings, brave crew of the White Chalice! My name is Roger Dantoinne - I am the chief executive of Blackstone Arts, the most dignified electronics company. I only want you to know: please continue your actions being saviors of this world. You have my company's humble support. We will send supplies at the earliest opportunity. Let us remain friends in the struggle to survive these difficult days.

Oh, one more thing before I forget. We were generous enough to send an agent as assistance. She is not a member of my company - but please treat her kindly nevertheless. Devon can be rather difficult sometimes but I trust her unique skills will be a great help to our shared efforts!

[The message ends by showing a picture of Devon. Speak of the devil - she was in the middle of trying to sneak on board without too many people noticing. But now everyone knows who and where she is.]



Tch. Dantoinne, you bastard...

[Devon's frown mirrors the one shown in the video.]

[Aaaand, due to prompt 1, one of the Garderobe teachers has given her detention, so she's got a deck brush and bucket, and is scrubbing the floors.]

[After she's finally excused from her detention, she makes it back to the room she was assigned, and collapses on the first bed in there. It may or may not be her own]
