1. (Mostly explanations - really, really long)
[The island hideout owned by Shu is now back in operation. The damaged Granzon is docked quietly in its hangar after a long absence, while its pilot, along with a certain familiar on her usual shoulder perch, touch down on the floor.]

Cut for length )


2. (More of an actual prompt - dated to about a day after Birmingham.)

[Some people wandering around will find Shu and his bird standing somewhere with a good view. This means either the top of a building that overlooks part of Sakihama City, or the Star Rose's observation deck, or any such place.

You also overhear a conversation.]

"It's pretty amazing, huh? Almost like we never really left! Looks like the situation's almost the same too, except for the changes that the lady with the alien hair told us about...and this whole rich, influential uncle thing."

"All the more reason I feel that we should have ended our own battle in La Gias."

"On the bright side, Master, I don't think most people expected to hear so much from you yesterday. You definitely don't seem to be the type to have concerns like that, either."


"W-well, you see, you're kinda...or er...to other people you're..."

[The bird flails while trying to think of how exactly to describe what she means.]
[On a less important note, some may have noticed that a certain amnesiac professor is now missing from the bases as well. In fact, the last time you've probably seen him was after that death-trap of a mission in La Gias.

There is a note on the local terminals however. It reads:]

Hey there!

If you're reading this, Master and I have finally gotten permission to go off on a quick trip. There's something really important that we need to take care of, and we took the Granzon with us, obviously.

We'll be back as soon as we can, promise!

PS: I had nothing to do with rigging the stoves to explode. It was obviously the scarecrow!
1. [The safe harbor that Shu was referring to is a cave some distance away from the battle zone. There's ample space for everyone to store their machines, and necessities such as food and water are all available.

As you're getting accustomed to the layout however, a particular bird/familiar approaches you.]

So since Master isn't really himself right now, I owe you guys some explanations!

The most likely reason you've been brought to La Gias is a large-scale summoning spell. I've got no clue who the caster is, or why they did it, though.

If you've got any other questions, I can try to answer them.

[She does look a BIT more serious when it comes to the next part, however.]

...By the way, I noticed some of you recognize Master from before. Just letting you know that reminding him of the past all at once right now would be a baaad idea. That goes especially for some of you.


2. [It's not long afterwards that Shu can be found next to a VERY familiar looking device in one section of the cave. Those of you who have been with the Unity Group before would recognize this as a TSEN Device, but Shu looks confounded by its presence there...]


3. (Open)
[The combatants from the mission have returned! But since then, you might have gotten a glimpse of one of the new people who returned with them, or for something more obvious: that mecha in the hangar. Chika's advice about those memories of his has also spread one way or another, but it's not like you'd run into him a lot anyway.

Said person is regularly found in the records' rooms of the bases (or something equivalent like a library); suspiciously going through a small number of both written and digital documents. They're not top secret stuff, so he's not breaking any rules, but still...]


((OOC: Yes, this still takes place in La Gias for prompts 1 and 2, and is the explanation as to why everyone can go home so quickly. This way we won't get multiple posts of 'what now?'. Plus, this means our newly introduced player can go ahead and frontdate to after this event if he wants to make his own post.

OOC 2: Walt tag is for anyone from the mission to tag, enjoy.))
