"We did it."

The Universe was saved; from wear, battle and heat damage, the Zaku 2000 Kai looked pretty beaten up. How was the pilot?

At this point, Bernard Wiseman wanted to do many things. He could not believe that he was alive, and felt like he just accomplished something no one else has. He was about to depart himself, asking his roommate about what the life of a mechanic and "junkers boy" was like. However, he still questioned a few things -- like the future of Zeon for example.

Also, there was this: Will he ever see the rest of his Chalice friends again?

Who wants to talk to Bernie before he leaves?

Who knows. With a little faith, he'll meet everyone again in the sky one day. (いつか空に届いて)

It seemed very serious; Zaku Kai was wrecked badly and now Bernie had to leave. He had his bags.

"What should I take?" Bernie's body felt heavy. It felt like a permanent parting from a diverse group of companions who didn't mind that he was a Zeon, and he also felt that he couldn't have a chance like this again.

"Thank you, White Chalice. Hm?" In his room, Bernie noticed something from the drawer -- those two interesting things that he bought way back.

"Yep, can't leave that." Then there's also a photo. Looked like a collector's item or something from a magazine.

Bernie was hesitant to pick it up. He took a moment to think, and then he nodded his head.

"I'll make it right," Bernie said, taking the photo. "Oh yeah!" Also another picture of a reliable friend.

"I am so surprised that I'm alive...what did I just see? All of it?"

It took a while; at first, Bernie looked like he's been through Hell, a journey. he looked so surprised or his mind was gone.

Then, he dropped onto his knees. His eyes and cheeks were soaked.

The final enemy has revealed itself...

The end of our struggle for peace is near, I can feel it. But...

How the heck are we supposed to find some sort of omnipotent primal energy source that seems to be the forefather of all exotic energy sources? For that matter, I'm not even sure we'd be able to hurt it!

Short of something genocidal as shutting down and destroying all the sources it would have for interacting with our world, I can't think of any permanent solution here. We no longer have LordGenome's Bio-Computer to help locate it. Absorbing it and containing it seems to make things explode. And if this is truly an omnipotent energy we're dealing with, there's a heavy probability that conventional weapons won't phase it, and exotic weapons will simply fuel it! Even if we did destroy it, wouldn't it have a similar effect to killing Artifex?

It seems lately we've been dealing with nothing but madmen and self-proclaimed gods lately...does anyone have any ideas for moving forward at this point?

Since the Sanc intervention, Bernie has been out of combat. Who remembered that Bernie was a new Zaku? Which made its debut when the Chalice "went berserk".

So far, his first couple trials has been a success. He's sitting in between the Zaku's shoulder and head, just contemplating]

"I'm actually pretty proud of myself," he said, patting the Zaku's head.

"This whole time, I've been such a fool...everything that EVIL, my whole relationship with Oishi,'s all been because I've blindly followed the path of JUSTICE. Always playing hero and acting courageous...pushing my ideals on everyone without a second thought...have I chosen the wrong path?"

1. [The mission ended on a bittersweet note. And afterwards, you might run into a certain white-clad mage - now decked out in heavy looking gear - as she touches down on the deck. There's a serious look on her face.]

I'm sorry; inter-dimensional space has been rough lately, but I hurried back here as soon as I could.

I'm glad that everyone seems to be holding up since the last time we met, and while we're at it...I do have some good news to share...


2. [A while later in the hangar, Nanoha is holding a small holographic clipboard as she inspects the equipment she used in the mission: The Fortress and Strike Cannon. The individual parts are floating - occupying one of the mecha stations, and Raising Heart in its standby form is hovering just above her left shoulder.

If some of you couldn't tell already, this stuff is new even to Nanoha. That's also why she's inspecting it: to make sure it won't do anything she doesn't want it to. Her first impression?]

Mm...maybe they would have overdone it if they'd kept at this...

Second thought, which reminds me...why shout attacks anyway?

Sorry, just a weird day. We saw Newtype monkeys, an invention of one of the Zabi Family. It just shows how we're not so different from one another. They were so efficient. It's interesting how warfare has developed. Now there's mobile AI.

[Finally, White Chalice arrived in Orb. We will be here for a while, so make yourselves comfortable! Fortunately the oceanic country is a peaceful and prosperous one, so you can spend this time in comfort. Not to mention the high class hotel that was booked specifically for us to reside in - covering a lot of ground, with many facilities and easy access to nearby malls, what luxury! There's a giant Christmas tree in the lobby to put everyone in festive mood, and even though the climate is not exactly what you'd call winter-like, Orb mobile suits are flying around the place and showering it with snow a few times every day. Talk about dedication. Or wastefulness.]

Despite being clad in full uniform they're acting like ordinary people rather being ruthless or cold or cruel or vicious.

"Is...everyone safe?"

[The Earth was dark, shrouded by a cloudy barrier. Then, he thought of what it might've meant. Threats on Earth were unmolested, some resources and stops weren't available, the Chalice was vulnerable in Space...

Bernie grimaced]


"Meh...where is it?"

[It was December, and Bernie was in the hangar looking around for something. For some reason, he kept missing it, but near one of the heels of a MS was a long rolled up piece of coated paper. If anyone found it and open up, they'd see a blueprint.

A blueprint of a new Zaku model. It looked heavy and well-equipped.

[During Sanc Kingdom's defense, everyone fought and defeated two Over Being. Once again Texotic was the one to deal the killing blow on both (because that's the only way to kill them for real rather than just make them return home, remember), including literally choking the life out of one of them.

What kind of trauma and denial will the alien project this time?]

Celtic and Tlapalli are dead. I think that leaves only one Over Being left on Earth - other than me. Memories that Coztic left me tell me that Nextic is the strongest one, the last games' victor.

But if we work together, we can destroy Nextic too, I'm sure. When I, I mean we do that, well...

Earth is still threatened by so many, Over Being almost seem insignificant. I don't want those other threats to succeed either.

I want to be humanity's defender. A hero.

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.

You get a video message from Matthew soon after returning to the White Chalice. He's still wearing his armored cooling vest, stained at the front with green fluid, the hilt of the knife he used to fake stab himself still poking out of it. He looks cross.

You see Matthew lounging in one of the White Chalice's portside lodges, gazing up at the sky. Very soon, the Jade Falcon invasion fleet will be braking into orbit, and the Chalice will go to war to protect the Earth against his former Clan.

He sighs. "Simon...where are you now? And what would you do in my shoes?"

He pauses. "Actually, I can guess exactly what you would do."


You stumble upon Matthew, in the simulator room, training his butt off! He's putting his modified Nova through a set of scenarios in space, inside a ship's hanger bay, and on land, fighting against a variety of Clanner Mechs. It looks like he's...trying to disable them? He's concentrating laser fire at their arms and legs, blowing them off at their joints.

Char and his Phoenix plan was stopped, and Earth was save; the hostages from Axis were saved as well. This would give anyone a sense of accomplishment.



Despite one threat of Zeon being vanquished, and for good reason, Bernie...

(Captain...why did it have to end up like this?!)

On the WC deck, Bernie was on his knees, punching the deck floor with a fist. This was probably the first time he was really upset, and he wasn't sure if he should forgive Kairos. Or maybe he was more upset with himself?

"I totally failed," he muttered, hitting the deck again, "I couldn't..."

Sorry about before. I guess I was instinctively afraid. I always get discouraged when I see so much power in front of me. Or anything incredible really. Ever since joining the Chalice, I've been surviving a war more absurd than even the One Year.

The Chalice is here because Miss Ayame thought that what the Kairos Aspros were doing was wrong, right?

So, we have to continue what's doing right?

...but I do wonder, what was the Earth Federation and the Zeon like in the future? I think we should ask them to help us."

[Bernie is in the hanger analyzing the mobile suits, walking around back and forth with his arms at his back. That included his green Gaza D, and his old Zaku II if it's still there]

"Mmm...these weapons are a part of a long Zeon hierarchy, and yet they can't seem to surpass the gundams."

[Then, Bernie plops to the floor, crossing his arms]

"Maybe I'm a little jealous."

"That guy named 'Cello'. What did he remind of? A puppet?"


Bernie is in the hangar, observing the salvaged equipment. from the A-LAWS and Neo Zeon. Zeon soldier folded his arms.

You see the reading material he's perusing consist of... studies on Newtypes. Scientific Journals, Public Discussions - any information available to AEUG, the Chalice and the Public. Why the sudden interest? Well there were a lot of newtype pilots around - Kamille, Amuro goddamn RAY, that pirate kid Tobia... MAYBE Roux? He wasn't sure on that.  there was the Queen Bee of Zeon and Char Aznable... then there were also those Cyber Newtype- types and those Innovators... OH! And the CoOrdinators... those counted too right? Maybe?. Between his various interactions (or due to lack of interactions, reliance on gossip and hearsay.) along with what little he could understand in the various studies he read through, he came to a very succinct conclusion.]

Newtypes... are weird.

[Seriously, the whole spatial awareness, telepathy = NEXT WAVE IN HUMAN EVOLUTION thing was kinda unsettling. Like. There was no clearly defined answer as to what a newtype was, or what one is capable of. It's also weird that no one ever considered that Newtypes could extend beyond humans if it WAS evolution.]

Bernie, in his green Zeon flight suit, was pacing up and down the corridors of the Chalice. If there was one thing he was good at, it was not looking like he was in high spirits. His head hung long, his arms behind his back. Maybe he was in a lot of thought.

"Tch, I can't believe it. What would they think of this?" Then he thought, why do they have to leave?

Bernie is in the hangar, cleaning his Gaza D. He was alive; however, he looked a little thoughtful. Second thought, while he was doing work, Bernie didn't seem to be earnest about it. In fact, he was sitting inside the lift, cross-legged and reaching out to scrub the mobile armor in circles.

As some of you might be aware, Axis Zeon's plans to conquer other space colonies at some point in the future were unveiled some time ago. In light of this revelation, we've decided that we cannot aggravate our relations with the colonies and their allies by hosting Zeon dignitaries on White Chalice.

Haman Karn and Char Aznable have been asked to leave the ship. Furthermore, should a conflict between Axis Zeon and another group friendly towards us erupt, White Chalice will likely join the battle on the other group's side, against Zeon. I'm afraid the times when we could afford to stay neutral in such situations are long gone.

[But, even as a Rider she eventually gets tired. Less than an hour later, Felicita is already de-henshined and resting on a wheelchair. She looks exhausted, but very happy.]

That was great. Thank you... it's almost as great as piloting Deva itself.
I don't know how to pay back for this...

[Speaking of Deva, it's time for the weekly training. Felicita got into her mobile suit's cockpit - with help, probably yours. The cockpit is tiny, cramped and dark. There are no monitor screens or standard controls, just a chair in the middle and a visor hanging from the low ceiling. And cables. Lots and lots of cables.]

Thanks. I'll be fine from now on.

[Felicita picks up the hanging cables one by one and starts inserting them into access ports on her body - arms and legs mostly, but there are also some on her back. Good thing her hospital gown comes with convenient holes, or else she'd be naked.]

[2] Some time after the adrenaline afterglow had faded from Haman's heart she might be found in the mess hall, sitting across the table from Mineva, their plates pushed away so make room. Mineva had string around her fingers, woven together just so that when Haman pinched it here and pulled it around, the whole designed changed and transferred easily to her hands.
An old children's game Haman had almost forgotten from her own youth, and now she played it with Mineva.

[3] [private to Hixar]
Haman had sent one of her guards out into the ship to hunt down the Gundam pilot. When the man found Hixar he handed him note penned in pink ink. 'Please come see me when you have the time. I have a business matter I wish to discuss with you. - Regent of the Principality of Zeon, Haman Karn'

In the period of time since the Battle of Beastman Mount, the land battleship Dai-Gunzan has been quiet, following the White Chalice around on a combination of autopilot and skeleton crew, a piece of Isorla bringing forth memories of a sad loss.

But Now!!! With a fresh coat of paint, some maintenance, and the recruitment of some more helping hands, the Gurren Brigade's mightiest (well, only) warship stands tall, read to cut through destiny, defeat evil, and claim glory!

Land Battleship: Dai-Gurren-Dan!

Matthew stands on the prow, inspecting with narrowed eyes the Gurren Brigade banner fluttering in the breeze, arms folded as the whistling wind blows down the open deck.

"...I should have brought a coat." He says finally. Anyone there to agree with him?


At long last, Matthew, head ensconced in Neurohelmet, leans back in his Battlemech's cockpit again.

He keys in the activation sequence, and his restored...nay, his upgraded Nova comes to life around him!

"PIK Authorization Code: A real man fights with his fists!."

"[Code Accepted. Reactor Online. Sensors Online. Weapons Online. All Systems Nominal.]"

A hatch on the main deck of Dai-Gurren opens up, and those who watch or are standing by in mechs see a strange version of the venerable Clan OmniMech come trotting out!

"Nova Messenger, moving out!"

Help him test it out? Comment?


Stealthy people on the White Chalice! You espy Matthew in a lounge in front of a terminal, chuckling as he talks to someone on the future equivalent of Skype!

"So you would be willing to come in and bolster the ranks of the Brigade, quiaff?"

Take a closer peek?


"Simon?" Matthew calls out cautiously as he walks down a set of halls. "Simon the Digger? We should talk, quiaff? About the legacy–"

He cracks open the door to a large supply room. He blinks as his eyes adjust. Then his eyes widen.

"The stravag has he been doing?" He blurts out. He pulls out his comm pad.

[Public Channel.]

"Fellow members of the White Chalice. I have a...question to ask. It is a normal freeborn funerary practice to make stone sculptures of the deceased in large quantities, quiaff?"

1.[You're walking somewhere alone, when the CGI form of Alice chooses to bother you from a nearby computer terminal.]

Hey! Hey! Guess what, guess what, guess what!

2.[There are, of course, missions against AI opponents for the various mecha simulation things. But today, there's a new one! And while normally they have an Easy to Very Hard ranking, this one is in a class all by itself.

Difficulty: Lunatic
Terrain: ???
Opponents: ???
Summary: Defeat the Red Queen.

(The bottom battle will just be for extreme cool things, and will change every time someone tries it.)

[There was a petit blond in the hangar who was dressed more like a prep school student than a mech pilot, but the quiet confidence in his bearing belayed his comfort in such a setting. He glanced around the facilities in uncertain but eager curiosity, pushing his flight goggles-- an unusual accessory, given his sense of fashion-- up onto his forehead as he gathered his bearings. He stood near the Gundam he had exited, and looked up at it almost sympathetically as he took stock of the damage to the shield and the armor itself.]

You did well out there, my Sandrock.

[There was a note of fondness in his tone, as if the suit were a long time friend rather than a tool that was designed for war. His smile brightened after a moment when he had another thought.]

I hope they don't mind us coming on board.

[...there was no explanation about who 'they' were.]

After the White Doll awakens mission.

[Loran is on the ground and dealing with the news that Mr. Heim is dead, the casualties to the town he came to recognize as his home were severe. There was no way console the mistress and now he finds himself walking through Nocis city after the fires have been put out, quite depressed about the whole thing and muttering to himself.]

Why would they have opened fire like that? I don't understand.
Surely she wouldn't have approved this.

[He looks between the wreckage and the White Chalice. Something tells me his easy days were over.]

[The white haired volunteer that was scurrying around days before? Not so much this time. Now he stands in the White Chalice hanger, gripping a tablet manual and staring at the White Doll- the others said it was a Gundam. So that makes him a pilot now doesn't it?]

This isn't going to work.
Just shipping me off...but of course he's not gonna' listen to me.
...White Doll. I know it's not your fault.

[Guess who got traded for the sake of his town's safety.]

[[His work load having lightened recently, MarKus finally has "me" time to sit down and draw. Not that drawing was ever really one of his hobbies... But let's peek in...]]

Maybe I can use the LeaBuckle in the cockpit... [[And he starts sketching only to quickly abandon it.]] No, that's stupid... [[And the crumpled paper is thrown.]]

Mmmm, maybe a guitar like Todoroki? [[And he starts doing that but... that is soon, too, thrown aside in frustration.]] No, how's that going to work besides a huge club...

FUUUUUUUUUUUCK! Who knew designing a machine was this hard! [[RAWR! He tears his bandanna off and throws it on the table.]] How about...

[[And he's sketching again. Come find out what he's doing, or, perhaps he hit you with a stray, shitty, lineart of his old machine with unnecessary Rider attachments and themes.]]

* Door is open; Bernie is in his room, sitting hunched over with a pen and paper. What in the world was he doing?

"Dear Chris,, no. UGH!" *And a ball of crumpled paper is tossed into the trash. He groans, and leaned his head onto his hand. He wondered over and over what to do before Valentines came. A gift for one or a gift for everybody? Bernie takes in a breath*

"No matter what happens, no matter what Axis does, no matter what the Federation thinks..." He pauses, We can still be friends..

2.) [On the Deck!]

* On the Chalice deck, maybe you can chance sitting next to Bernie. He raises a big question...*

"Is there someone here that you like?"

[Setsuna has been gone for some time, and it's only now that he's come back from the Ptolemaios. However, he didn't come back empty handed.]


[Mechanics, if you enter the hangar,you'll see a team of Haros in floating terminals waiting to greet you. Yellow, Blue, and Red flap their wings happily as they rush over to greet you.]

Greetings! Greetings! Orders? Orders? [Setsuna has pulled through, and now you guys have a set of repair Haros to assist you. These are the same guys who help maintain the Gundams of Celestial Being, so their competence is without question.]


[Elsewhere in the hangar, Setsuna is staring at the 00 Gundam, the new Weapons pack equipped and ready for deployment. Perhaps you might be interested in asking him about it?]

[[King Gainer managed to drag in another Overman... However, it's not...

Well, it's empty. Very empty. Setting down the black Overman, he eventually dismounts King Gainer to go over and investigate it himself.]]

Wow... what in the world is this thing...

[[And as Gainer climbs into the cockpit, it closes up around him. XAN boots up with Gainer at the controls! This... cannot be good! Gainer's in a mysterious Overman that just ate him inside!

[Luger seems to have stopped smoking for a while when you found him. In fact he set the cigarettes as far away from himself as possible. His eye was shut, he was leaning against a wall and he was trying to concentrate on something to anyone observing. He was trying to block out the voices. Trying to force them out of his head. It was trying to fix a broken dam in a howling monsoon.]

[Still... the considerable effort he's putting into it... he stops after a while though, shaking and making for the cigarettes.]

[Talk to him?]


[At the hangar, Luger's observing his Leo quietly. This machine got him out of a lot of trouble, he never left it behind for anything else, he never really modified it aside from giving it a new gun. And now he wonders... should he move on? Should he stay? Should he take this old and battered machine with him when he finally confronts the beast?]

Do you think I should leave him behind when the time comes?

[Patrolling, whee.  For the Aile it's an easy enough task, since the thing was originally just meant for recon purposes.  But just as it's almost time for the group to head back to the Chalice, Josh suddenly lets out a grunt of pain.]

D-damn!  This is...

D-don't worry, I'm alrigh-

[But he stops.  Because things are not alright.  Not at all.]

Goddammit don't tell me that they've actually...!

[The Aile then suddenly blasts off in one direction at the blink of an eye, and with the head start it's going to take some time before anyone that was part of the group catches up to him.  And before that happens, you'll see what got him panicking in the first place: an absolutely devastated town.  Countless buildings are still on fire, as well as numerous piles of dead bodies.  Judging by just that, one might just think it was ordinary raiders... but the fire only claimed a portion of the town.  Another looks more like it was just carpet-bombed with heavy ordinance, and yet another seems more like everything and everyone in that general section was just torn to shreds.

[And the Aile just stands there, facing it all.]

... They did this.  The Ruina...

... And it was recent.


[Saying Josh is Mr. Scowlyface when he returns to the Chalice is a bit of an understatement.  And when the Aile lands he's already just skulking off, fists clenched.]


... Fucking...


[He could feel it.  Just leeching off residual feelings was one thing.  He had honestly felt them... and for that matter he could feel the pain and terror of all of those people they slaughtered.  And they got off to that bullshit?!?]

Remind me the next time we can catch the ear of anyone in Bian's alliance.  Because I don't think the Feds or Britannia are going to do jack shit to deal with the Ruina if they stay in North America.

[1. What I got! ]

Wiseman went missing momentarily.

Bernie hasn't seen battle in a while. He kept up wuth his Gaza's maintenance, and made sure no know treated the Zaku units like mannequins or the like. This time, when he was off duty, he left the ship and came back with a couple of interesting things. He wandered towards the deck, his favorite spot.

Looks like Bernie was on board with the comics and the gaming.

[2. Around the halls... ]

If anyone was walking through the Chalice halls, and turned a corner, they would meet up with this.

"BOOOO!" Then, there was a laugh, and Bernie pulled off the mask. What in the cosmos did he buy?

[Simon's in the hangar, looking up at a new, shiny, fire-truck-red mecha. Yes, it's Gurren Lagann, the symbol of his and his bro's teamwork. He's definitely pleased about its performance... but he's still a little hung up on having nearly gotten Kamina killed immediately prior. The kid just shakes his head, a self-sure smile on his face.]

I won't run away any more... Kamina needs me. We'll fight together, whatever happens.

[[MarKus noticed something strange one morning going to look for his favorite toy and hope to call up some extra hands for work today.]]

Well shit on a shingle... I guess Tsukasa really is gone...

[[That sucks balls, but, well, no sense in being a baby about things. It does take away from his extra curricular heroism though.

So for the first time in a while, MarKus ignores work and runs some checks on his own machine. Sadly, the red-scarved mech has been collecting dust... Well, as far as MarKus cares.]]

You know, I'm supposed to be glad that I'm not using this thing, but... there's obviously still fighting... I wanna play my part to.

[[Yes, come bug him, please. Even if he's blasting all kinds of noise, and you probably didn't hear a word he said from afar.]]
