[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!]

I wonder... If there is an over-encompassing, universal force from which every other force is born, then what would be its opposite? Wouldn't it be the personal force that's unique to you and you alone?

[Prometheus shrugs in response to Werter's musing.]

Or maybe I'm just waxing pseudo-philosophically. In the end, Primeval Force was no universal power; it was a parasite born from the paradox of a stable time loop. And it is no more.

Now then. I think I'm done being a hero for now. Time for something even more challenging; I still have that degree in biochemistry to get! I used my strength to protect the world in times of war; now it's time to make it a better place to live in times of peace.
With science.

Well, this is it. Two years, eight months. Such a long time, but I guess my journey with the Chalice is finally over. Heh, I've been talking about it all the time, but I never expected it to actually happen like this. One chapter in life ends, another starts.

I'll be leaving soon. All my stuff was packed already, re-packing it didn't take much time. I have places to visit before the final battle; need to introduce Miki to my parents, and vice versa. If anyone wants a drop off at Berlin or Fuso, or somewhere on the way, I guess you can tag along.

It won't take long, we'll be back before the battle with Primeval Force. Both Prometheus and Nebula can be disgustingly fast when they want to. Don't do anything stupid while I'm gone, okay? I'll see you again soon. And then, we'll finish this.

[1] It was good to see all those familiar faces again. And some of those strange, unfamiliar ones.

Kurou, Al... I hope one day, we will meet again.

[Werter and Prometheus are busy unloading stuff back into their room. There's a note on the door, which reads:

I'M OFF TO MAKE SURE THE WORLD WON'T BE FLOODED BY HORRIBLE MONSTERS FROM OUTER PLANES. IF THERE'S A WAY TO RETURN, I PROMISE I WILL FIND IT. IF THERE ISN'T, AT LEAST I'M EXPLORING STRANGE ALIEN WORLDS. EITHER WAY, THIS IS SOMETHING I HAVE TO DO. I'M SORRY.

Fortunately the note was completely unnecessary in the end, because they were away only for a minute in this universe's time!]

[2] [There is one more matter that needs to be taken care of...]


Wait! Change of plans! You don't need to deliver that letter anymore! Stop!


"Uwah! It's been only 10 minutes! I'm so confused!"

[Werter is chasing a Servbot. The Servbot has a letter in his hand. The envelope reads TO MIKI.]

Well then. The situation intensifies. The short version is that all of Black Lodge and Cthulhu are defeated, but Master Therion is alive and soon, the gate of Yog-Sothoth will open, releasing hundreds of overpowered eldritch abominations on Earth. This could be stopped if we kill Therion, but he happens to be behind the gate himself. We have a few weeks at most.

Shall we give up? Hell no. I've already seen some pretty dire things and didn't give up then. We know almost everything about Master Therion now, and Maxene has some information to share as well. Knowledge is power... And, as a scientist, all my power comes from knowledge! Soon, we should have a plan to stop Therion for good; to break the cycle of his constant rebirth. This is not the end for humanity; it's merely the beginning of another huge challenge ahead of us. But since when does that stop White Chalice?

[Prometheus, who's lounging nearby in a small pool of regeneration-increasing liquid like it was a jacuzzi, raises a sign in response to the speech. It reads: 7/10.]

[There's a familiar ship back in the hangar, arrived quietly and without fanfare - under the circumstances, it's not good to draw attention to advanced alien technology. And on the comms, one of the passengers -]

Hello, everyone. We're back. With some good news, which I should probably let Lily deliver.

But whatever about our news, I imagine a lot must have happened here while we were away. I'm relieved to see the planet's still in one piece, to be honest...

What have we missed?

[If you're quick on the draw, you might intercept Laura while she's still in the hangar, but the likeliest place to find her is in the mess - she's wasted no time in brewing some tea and getting a taste of home. The look on her face is somewhere between bliss and the verge of tears. It looks like Cosmic Ark had an effect on her, too, as she's still wearing what looks like an Angel Force-style outfit - though without the bulky metal armour, except for a small headpiece.]

[Pandora's Box]

After the encounter with Wayne Waco and his mercenary company in Seattle, and the whole 'Alice gone crazy' disaster, Matthew can be found, slightly in that most classic of haunts for tormented souls–

–The Gentleman's Defensive Theology Club Lodge. Leaning against the swollen (thankfully unbroken) head of one of Herb's idols Matthew is swallowing a measuring beaker's worth of a truly noxious cocktail, while staring at a worn Jade Falcon patch in his other hand.

"What now?" You can hear him mumbling to himself. "What the stravag now?"

[2]

Later on, a more determined, if still gently swaying Matthew can be found wandering the halls of the White Chalice, up and down it's many levels, hangers, bridges, lounges, and greenhouses. To anyone he runs into, he takes care not to slur his words and asks:

"What do you think love is?"

[Late at night, Werter watches the stars in the clear sky. He actually has a real telescope now! Prometheus, on the other hand, only has binoculars, but doesn't seem to mind.]

Either way though when the cockpit opens...]

Guten Tag!

[Was Luger, pretty bruised and a little worse for wear - but looking downright cheerful! But that's not what's odd. He's wearing an oversized sombrero to boot, and had a poncho that reached to his feet and both were stained with all sorts of things you would rather not guess about.]

Kairos Aspida... You know what I think?

With the current situation, it's probably impossible to beat them in a straight fight. Not without total warfare, weapons of mass destruction and a huge loss of life. And, frankly, that's not worth it. We don't deserve it, they don't deserve it.

For the time being, we should lay low when it comes to them. Try to limit their influence and the spread of their ideals, maybe. But attacking them won't accomplish anything for now. Not until the situation changes, not until we have some kind of brilliant plan. In the meantime, picking a fight with them is almost as bad as joining them.

At least that's what I think. Maybe I'm mistaken, I've never been too good at politics. If anyone needs me, I'll be in my lab.

Recently, Roads mentioned the idea of an anti-evil god club. It was likely a joke, but White Chalice has an established tradition of taking jokes seriously.

Herb also has set up a gentleman adventurer's club, with the word "gentleman" being used in a gender-neutral way. But with no clear focus, there are few members.

Let us combine these two! A club for adventurous ladies and gentlemen, who focus on protecting humanity from evil gods and other supernatural forces, both by finding out more about them and battling them directly. We already have a club room, even - pretty well-furnished, if you don't mind cobwebs. And we could call it the League of... Hmm... I'm not very good with names, I'm afraid.

1. Laura's room

[Visitors or passers by the day after Lily's departure will find her engaged in a strange-looking mix of tidying the place up and packing for a trip. It shouldn't be all that time-consuming a task, but it seems to be taking her a while - unsurprisingly, if you witness one of the times she stops on finding one or another item to put away or add to the packing pile, having to sit and turn it over in her hands, looking a million miles away.]

2. Network (filtered)

[Doctors, spacers, aliens - a number of people aboard find Laura getting in touch over the next few days. She doesn't waste much time on pleasantries.]

What do we have aboard for long-distance, long-term travel? What would you need?

3. Hangar

[The rest of the time, she's in the hangar.

A lot. Working in and around Lily's ship, she's there so much it's not unlikely she's sleeping there, too. The ship itself doesn't show much sign of change, but its surroundings do - computer workstations multiplying around it, cables snaking out and to and between them. The captive Pepen's cage, too, soon moves to beside the ship, its own set of cables wiring the angry golden creature in to the whole shebang. Having called amnesty on her hangar duties for a while, Laura's returning the favour by staying out from under the feet of the other techs, but that doesn't mean the buzz of activity, or the occasional stream of profanity that erupts from the ship, or the obvious frustration in her body language when she taps away at the workstation the Pepen's wired in to, don't draw attention.

Sessions with the Pepen seem to be the most frequent. Other times, she's working at the ship's controls, or waist-deep in a maintenance duct somewhere. At least one evening, she can be found dozing in the pilot's seat with a blanket wrapped around her, lit by the glow of the screens.]

Thank you, Michelle. I'll be sure to put these to good use. Between this and my device, Baphomet will not know what's coming.

Every time the Invaders have poked their noses into human business, Hayato has responded with a flurry of activity and energy, frantically organizing everyone around him and doing everything he can to prepare for the encounter.

This time, he has no ship of his own. His army has shrunk down to its core of most loyal and skilled troops, all of whom know what to do. Zoldark has already mobilized the armies of Earth, probably with far more proficiency than Hayato himself could. Shin Getter Robo is in top condition. Hayato himself has given command of his army over to his most trusted (if NPC) lieutenant. This time he will be going as a simple warrior.

There's nothing left to do.

Instead of anything suggesting a cheerleading uniform she's wearing her ordinary tracksuit, looking not far different to when she started training with the 501st, in fact - which, given that Lilly presumably will not be introducing either simulated or live fire in to the exercise, probably says something about how comfortable she is with the whole idea...]

Experiment successful. Hah, that was close...

[3] I analyzed what's left of the rock monsters that terrorized the city. They are pretty similar to Elementals, but I'm almost certain they're not related to Baphomet. The lack of any Elemental sightings means he's still recuperating after his last defeat. Good.

What's not good are the implications that there's some other, similar but currently unknown force out there. Is it another god-like being? Just how many of those will we have to beat up?

Right next to him, there is the computer he uses to communicate with people, and a huge bag. Who knows what's inside? Only one way to find out! The computer screen says:]

MERRY CHRISTMAS, WHITE CHALICE! I HAVE PRESENTS FOR ALL THE BOYS AND GIRLS. HO HO HO.


[Werter sometimes can be found following the sleigh, wearing fake elf ears and a green hat. He also makes that face.]

A few days after the battle against the Inspectors, a dropship (similar to but not the one attached to the Chalice) bearing the insignia of Clan Wolf arrives.

One Ranna is there as the dropship unloads some supplies, weapon pods and mech part. While the technicians transfer them onboard Chalice, a woman wearing the Wolves' formal dress uniform alights the visiting ship without much fanfare.

Ranna salutes her. "Galaxy Commander."

The other woman returns the salute before smiling, "I come bearing word from Khan Phelan Ward - it is official, we have entered into an agreement to fight these 'Inspectors' you reported on."

She then hands over what appears to be a datadisk. "Furthermore, this is a message from your House. I am aware this is rather irregular, but we do live in irregular times - since I am already making the trip, I offered the House Leader to carry it here."

For once, Ranna appears almost speechless, before she nods, "Aff. Thank you."

The galaxy commander chuckles with some familiarity, "Perhaps you will gain a promotion after this, Star Captain, quiaff?"

A grin. "Perhaps, Jocelyn, perhaps."

After some chit-chat, Jocelyn will board the dropship once more, leaving Ranna with a contemplative look as she idles in the hangar.

2)

Some time later, invitations are send out, either in person by Ranna or left at your room/locker/email.

Dear comrades,

There will be a formal event taking place in Wolf City in the coming weeks, and I would like to extend my invitation to you as guests, friends and allies to visit our enclave in Siberia on the next dropship departure.

Should you not wish to witness the event, feel free to look around the city. As of now, we have yet to integrate our currency with the rest of Terra, so if you wish to trade and barter, you may do so using my requisition chip.

I do encourage bringing goods that you can spare in order to trade - it will aid us greatly.

Ranna

((OOC: There will be a post a few days later for the actual visit.))

I managed to ask Lex Loathe to negotiate about my brothers' release! With both the Golden Refractor and the Diana's Tear, I guess I have a pretty strong hand. I'll be leaving soon, wish me luck!

He asked me to come alone, so I'll be leaving my servbots here. Take care of them for me while I'm gone. The negotiation should just take at most a few days or so, so I'll see you guys again soon! Hopefully with my brothers!

Miss Tron is gone! Nobody is telling us what to do now! What should we do!

1. [Hangar]

[Sometime after the mission Ichitaka can be found in the hangar smiling like a loon.

He had finally rescued his Grandpa. Not only that but he had also defeated GreAT once and for all, completely gained his brother's trust, got on good terms with Imber, was maintaining his relationship with Haruka, AND on top of all of it, he finally had a spiffy new upgrade for Rushbird.]

Can't believe it took me a year to get everything done.

2. [Arboretum]

Hmmm what am I going to do now?

[It turns out that after he completed his main goal Ichitaka found himself at a loss on what to do next. Right now he's just laying down in the middle of the arboretum staring at the ceiling.]

3. [Locked to Jukai]

Hey I didn't get a chance earlier due to everything that happened but thanks. If it wasn't for you we might not have won that without casualties.

[1] First things first, once again thanks to everyone who kept talking to me when I wasn't myself. If you didn't do it, I probably wouldn't be able to regain my senses enough to tell you how to disable Prometheus. Who knows what might've happened then... Oh, and everything I said back then? I wasn't being myself, so don't take it to heart. In fact, it's best if you forget it all. Cough cough.

Anyway. When I was insane, there was a direct connection between my mind and Prometheus' database. I managed to pull out some vital information out of it, and I think I owe everyone an explanation. Grab something to drink and sit down, this is going to be long.

Long infodump here )

I managed to find plans for a mechanism in Prometheus' database. It seems to copy the effect of the ability Baphomet used on Artifex. It was never completed, but it might be our best chance here. I remember it so well that I can draw the schematics from memory... But I cannot build it myself. I'm a chemist, not an engineer. I will need help constructing it. Please, lend your help to me.

[2] [Werter is watching Prometheus and Epimetheus run inside giant hamster wheels. The wheels are connected to a power generator.]

Run, run, you still need to make many more gigawatts to make up for the trouble you caused. And no complaining! You got off easy anyway.

[[Gainer hadn't even bothered to land King Gainer properely. Landing him on one knee, it was positioned for him to leave the cockpit, but... for the longest time, he didn't.

Some nut that considered himself Cynthia's "father" just made off with his best friend and only rival.

And what rubbed it in even MORE was that he'd gone up against an opponent he didn't even have the time to get a hit in on, or study. An Overskill Blizzard stronger than his own? WHAT MADNESS WAS THIS?

How long is Gainer going to mope in there? And who's going to drag him out?

[[However later... Gainer has been pulled free and is, thusly, enthralled in his game again. Because that's unusual, isn't it?]]

[Post Battle of the Behemoths]

[1]

After the mission, Ranna is in the hangars, overseeing mechs with battle-damage being transfer from the Wolf dropship back to the White Chalice. There are some new additions - mechs painted in the Jade Falcon colors as well.

In fact, another young woman with sharp and refined features is standing besides Ranna, wearing a Falcon uniform, and a visible chord wrapped around her wrist. She does not appear to be restrained at all. Whatever a bondsman is to the Clans, it is not the typical definition of 'prisoner'.

See how they are doing?

[2]

Later, Ranna is by the Chalice comm console, a map of the planet on display. There are symbols all over the map, most of them have some form of Wolf or Falcon iconography attached.

She listens in to the reports, her expression calm.

[Thanks to Hadou Ruri pulling some strings, White Chalice gets access to Miskatonic Unversity's library. Not the dangerous or sanity-damaging parts, of course, but it's still an impressive collection of occult tomes. Werter is taking advantage of it and doing research on Baphomet, browsing through books and comparing his notes and videos from previous battles with the Disciples. He appears frustrated.]

Artifex... Who the heck is Artifex? Conor mentioned that name before... I am so close yet so far to solving this mystery! Argh!

1. [After the last fight, Werter can be seen where he left it - inside the mech-sized Prometheus in the middle of the village, keeping up the plasma field around it to stop the moisture from escaping while work is being done on a more permanent solution. He can't do anything for now but watch the workers, so needless to say, he's bored.]

Not all of a hero's work can be exciting, I guess. I wish I brought a book.


2. [After the town is protected again, Werter (and Prometheus as well) can be seen in an unused room on the Chalice where he tended to disappear over the last few weeks. Only it's not unused anymore, but filled with various lab equipment - stuff he already had, or traded, or borrowed. A lot of it is improvised, including pots and glasses taken from the ship's dining room, and the primitive computer used by Prometheus to communicate with humans can be seen in the corner. Werter looks over his work, including a note on the door:

WOLF* CHEMISTRY LABORATORY
Assistants welcome.
* - not to be mistaken with Clan Wolf]

Well, this is nowhere near close the level of the lab back at college, but it should be enough for my experiments. Just one last thing...

[Werter takes a white lab coat from a nearby rack and puts it on in one smooth gesture. So does Prometheus - yes, apparently someone made a tiny lab coat just for him. They stand next to each other, arms crossed with confidence.]

There. My vacations were long enough. Time for science.

[ Casshern has been taken into White Chalice custody. While the Chalice's brig contains only three maximum security cells for high-risk prisoners, Casshern willingly entered one of them, without even needing to be restrained. While the cells were humanely furnished, they were considered "maximum security" due to the fact that they have built-in airlocks that open and blow the prisoner out if they attempt to escape or cause any damage to the ship.

Casshern also willingly submitted to a few initial tests; his AI has been scanned, though it proved to be extraordinarily complex, and matches no known signatures of other known AI producers; and Casshern turned over a blood sample. Yes - Casshern had blood.

There is a large sign at the security checkpoint: "WARNING: HIGH-RISK PRISONER - TURN OVER ALL WEAPONS AND SHARP OBJECTS HERE - ABSOLUTELY NO HOSTILE ACTIONS"

Casshern can be found seated at the edge of his bed, staring at the floor. His helmet is seated on a small table, and he hasn't touched his food. ]

They said its just a precaution until they look at my programming, but...

[ He'll say as someone enters. ]

If... If I killed Luna... if I caused the Ruin... I deserve this.

[After the return from Area 11 Werter has been assigned to the infirmary for rest. He's currently using a laptop in his bed, browsing photos of the various creatures encountered during the mission, while absent-mindedly playing a game where you have to use undead to defend your house from carnivorous walking plants in a separate window. It's not a pretty sight. And the photos are pretty dreadful too.]

It is happening way too often lately... What the hell is going on? Am I just running out of steam?
