How does Loni react to the thought that his uncle, and a large part of the last few years of his life were all a lie?


"Yes! Yes, finally fucking yes! Finally, I got them all. After so much trouble, after being imprisoned by those jerks for so long, threatened, forced to lie in wait... All the seals." He's close to tears - from elation. But there's a shaking to his steps and his words, as if he could hardly believe it all.


"..."


"Now we can do it. We can make our wishes come true. Everyone will see it - I'm the Lady's chosen. I'm the hero. That's who I truly am!"

"And I have it all because of you. It's all thanks to you!"

He's not addressing Ilinka or Desta. Instead he talks to the other person in the room.


Me? Ahm... don't mention it. Really.

[Actually taggable part, locked to you know who]

A room in an abandoned, but surprisingly comfy once you get to know it, hotel. Far away from Unity Group, SSR, and all of the world's issues, this is where the trio spent their last few days. But now, one of them walks up to the exit.


"Alright guys. Time to go for me."


"Dude, no. This'll be some really bad shit, I can tell. Just don't go."


"Loni, please..."


"Yeah, I know... I know you're both worried. But, I gotta get some answers, you know? This can't wait anymore. Sides, I always come back safe, right? That's what I do. And I won't be alone out there..." He recalls the voice. The voice that keeps talking to him.
"So I'll be fine. Don't worry about me, okay?"


"That's why I worry! I worry about you, because you won't be alone..."

Commander-in-chief Antov ordered a quick briefing - in person, not through the broadcasting system. He's there, and he looks very tired. Almost like if he had to deal with a certain inspector drilling into his head how much in trouble Unity Group is due to the latest incident. Which is exactly what happened.

"So. I will try to make this fast."

"Despite our evacuation efforts, the fact remains that there's a big hole where the center of Montreal used to be and there are thousands of people dead. The Republic of Quebec is not an ESUN member so they could interpret it as an attack on their territory."

"They decided not to, fortunately. The Quebec government understands what we were trying to do and it was an accident, but still... the situation doesn't look too good. Macross will move to space at earliest possible opportunity, and I received explicit instructions to keep it away from population centers. Moreover..."

"We are handing over the -Saber units. This is an act of goodwill so to speak. Nobody was using them anyway except for Gavin and his friends, right? Speaking of which... the one good thing that came from this is that there was enough pressure insisting Ilinka Venczel stands trial, they actually pushed for it. She will face a court in four weeks from now on. The Sabers will be transferred out shortly before that."

"This is confidential information and you are not allowed to share it, especially the part about Venczel."

[2]

The Commander didn't want you to spread the word - and it's pretty obvious that one of the reasons for that was so Loni doesn't find out too soon.


"No, no, no, no no no no no no no fucking NO!"

He holds his head, eyes staring in shock, in between bouts of thrashing about.
Did Loni learn about the commander's decision somehow, I wonder?

"Not too long ago I said Unity Group is not a prison, but..." Commander Antov looks over his reports. Since when did UG accumulate so many prisoners to take care of?

A chance for you to converse with some of them (well except Sielje, she gets her own thread).

[1]
Ilinka Venczel doesn't do much - she mostly sits around in her cell without any displays of emotion, as if used to it. Despite not being a prisoner but merely someone under house arrest, Desta is similarly not too communicative, brooding by himself (presence of guards non-withstanding).

Apollonius, on the other hand...


"Aaah! I'm sick of this shit!"

He throws a book he was reading on the floor.

"I never expected being held hostage to be so fucking boring! Is that your plan? To bore me to death?"

"At least let me pilot once in a while! I see BrightSaber and it's collecting dust! Are you guys really so stupid to let a good unit and its pilot go to waste?"

[2]
"It is over..."
Aaron Anso Antema, the sole remaining Lady's Good Men member, is pacing around his cell.
"My uncle is dead and his cult has fallen. Our dreams, shattered. All because of that one man..."

"Loni Gavin. You have bested me." He admits bitterly.

[3]
Serak - Peola's mother for those of you who are not Ashe - unlike the other prisoners who are either emotionlessly sitting around, brooding, throwing tantrums or moping while pacing is...


"DI'SARTHI! KRA SATH KURS'HUK! ER'KITHARI MAR YARSARATH!!!!"

Screaming out things that Peola has continuously refused to translate while trying to pummel her way out of the reinforced cell she was placed in. Not only that but every time her fist rams into the walls she recieves an electric shock. The lack of damage to the walls and the faint scent of burning hair has yet to deter the scarred woman from her futile escape attempt. Eventually she would slam her head into the wall only to end up getting launched to the floor by the next jolt. The tirade of alien curses has yet to cease as she gets to her feet and tries again like a clawless cat trying to scratch a curtain.

Look, it's another announcement. All UG pilots were informed to come in person or look at the nearest screen, which shows Antov's uneasy face just now.

"This is a high-priority broadcast. Do I have everyone's attention? Good. So..."

"The good news is that we found the Lady's Good Men headquarters. It's in Africa and satellites do not show anything in the area, so it's most likely underground. It wouldn't surprise me if it was Professor Dupond's find, the ancient installation. Anyway, that's the good news."


"And the bad news is that there's a high energy reading detected in the area. I have no idea what the Good Men are up to, but they're doing something. It's too risky to send you guys in through the faux crossgate, even if we'd figure out how to activate it. You'll have to dig your way in, and my suggestion as to how is already on the Commander's table."

[2]

"They're going to fight Lady's Good Men? The final battle, and then it's over? ... Without me?"

Hey, look who else heard of the announcement, somehow. Gavin is not even angry, throwing himself around or cursing loudly like you'd expect him to be.

"This... isn't fair. This is all wrong. This isn't how it's supposed to go at all. I'm the hero... I'm the hero, dammit..."

He looks depressed.

"Yes? I'm sure you must have a lot of questions for me."

Following the recording, you can talk to the commander in chief in his office. He looks a bit uneasy and twitchy as usual. But also relieved, like if a great weight was lifted from his shoulders.

[2]
How about talking to Loni or Desta? Even though not in cells, they are under constant watch to make sure no one tries anything funny. Not them, nor people who are there to visit them.


"Fuck... so this is how we'd end up, imprisoned by our so-called 'allies'. If I knew... shit!"


"Just wait until we get out of here, Loni."

[3]
Lastly...


"..."

Ilinka is sitting in a cell. She doesn't pay attention to anyone who comes and goes, but if you call out to her - perhaps she'll respond?

Unity Group's finance-related problems have eased over time. Nowadays they are pretty much gone and situation is back to how it was before.

But now, you get a reminder why the problems started in the first place.


"Holy crap! It's like Christmas came early!"

Loni's here. And so is his new unit. In the hangars, equipped with twin beam katanas, stands a stark white unit. The top of the line one of a kind prototype - the BrightSaber.

[2]
What about the old FightSaber? It's still being used, as a matter of fact someone is taking it through a training course right now. It jumps from cover to cover swiftly, shooting down target drones with gravity blasts while avoiding their counter fire.

Once the course is over, the time and score displayed are impressive. Browsing the results database would show that despite the unit being underequipped compared to its loadout from before, it scored higher than Loni ever did. But he's not the pilot this time.


"Yes, that's acceptable. I can work with this."

Ilinka is.


"Nice, Ilinka. This is a much better ride than a crappy old Gespenst. Now you won't need rescuing all the time anymore!"


"..."

By the way, Desta's nowhere around. Maybe the third of the Gavin party is not in mood for Christmas spirit.

[Locked, non-interactive.]

"Shit! FightSaber was already lagging behind, and now that my sword is destroyed... I can't save anyone like this! To be able to protect my friends, to do that - I'll need to work hard to get my own, up to date machine."

"Yeah! It's time to do this! I'll show you guys what I can do yet."

[The actual post you can respond to:]

Something's not right with Unity Group bases. Resources distributed towards unit maintenance and repairs trickled to bare necessities, the quality of food served in mess halls took a noticeable hit, even water in the showers is measured now! What the heck is going on? The man responsible for support has the answers.


"Gavin requested a new unit for himself and somehow, the request was approved. The thing is, we're covering expenses related to its construction, and since it's supposed to roll out fast, it's not cheap. I'm cutting costs where I can just so UG stays afloat."

Logistics Specialist Dirchs looks exasperated. Not by this question, but by the situation.

"And before you ask, no I don't like it either. Just hang in there. This is not a permanent setup. It'll pass soon... I hope."
"Fuck!"

Loni kicks the wall of the hangar angrily.

"That Constans guy is one thing, but against Ingram, FightSaber was absolutely useless. If he hurt Ilinka... damn, I knew we couldn't trust that guy! There was something really shady about him all the time."

"At this rate, FightSaber's going to need an upgrade. It just won't cut it anymore."

"Good job, Unity Group. The Lady's Good Men have been defeated without civilian casualties. We have captured a number of enemy pilots and intelligence, and analysis of discoveries made is underway."

"The noose is tightening around their necks."

Do you have anything to say to Major Ingram before the transmission ends?

[2]

"Hey."

Look who's there. This time though, Apollonius "Loni" Gavin looks a bit apologetic.

"After what happened, me and Desta talked a bit and he's got something to say now."

[3]


"Tch. I got distracted for a second and ShotSaber's all busted. Top notch mecha my ass..."


"That man... I made a mistake and let him go. He was an enemy..."


"What happened out there? Was that the true power of friendship, or something like that? Why don't I have that kind of power, is something missing?"

It seems each individual member of Loni's team is busy angsting over something. Confront one or more of them, maybe?
"Hey guys, the place feels like a morgue today. Glum faces everywhere... someone died or something?"

Look who's back at Sakihama - FightSaber is in the hangar, and Loni is walking around the base corridors. He seems to be heading towards the kitchens, in search of cake and other festive foods.

"Me and friends just took down a big cell of those Good Men weirdoes, so I'm here to resupply. Our victory calls for a celebration, let's party!"
srwu_mods: (Default)
([personal profile] srwu_mods Jun. 28th, 2014 04:54 am)
Three units have taken refuge in Sakihama's hangars. One of them is a Gespenst mk II Kai, but the two others are new. FightSaber and ShotSaber - the former is red, equipped with a long chainsaw sword, the latter is blue with two beam pistols wielded akimbo. And yes, they have the large gun (graviton cannon) as well.

In addition to the units, their pilots are here as well, hanging around FightSaber's feet.


"Alright guys, let's introduce ourselves. I'm Apollonius Gavin, Loni for people who know me. And these two are my precious friends, Desta Mlakar and Ilinka Venczel."


"Hmph. You're awfully happy to be here, Loni."


"It's good to cooperate with you, Unity Group."


"Yeah, you see, we're not really going to join Unity Group or anything. We work best in a small team, we don't really follow orders from Major Ingram either. But we know a lot about 'the Lady's Good Men' or whatever these weirdos like to call themselves. So, ask away?"

Going to ask Loni's group about the mysterious enemy faction? Or are you just here to say hello and get to know them better? Or perhaps confront Desta about him shooting the retreating and immobilized enemy pilots during the mission?
