[After the battle at Anchorage, one has to wonder what happened to Gipsy Danger. MIA and falling off the radar after the Plasma Blast into Knifehead. Well... somewhere further up the coast, a massive behemoth of sheared and torn metal trudged onto the snowy, frosty beach with debris crashing to the ground with every step. A low groaning, shrieking noise filling the air as it just couldn't keep going and plummeted to earth with a tooth rattling crash. A fallen giant in every way. A figure stumbled from the ruined Conn-pod. Unsteady on his feet and nearly falling multiple times. Several injuries were revealed from the damaged sections of his suit, his eyes, clearly visible from the broken helmet betraying shell-shock like you wouldn't believe as he staggered about as if searching...]

Yancy?! YANCY!!!

[He didn't want to believe... he saw it happen of course... he saw his brother get pulled away and die. Both with his own eyes and Yancy's. But denial was a powerful thing, especially coupled with immense stress, mental fatigue and blood loss. He crashed into the ground like his Jaeger, struggling to force himself back to his feet... he had to keep looking... but everything was getting so blurry. He could barely even register what was happening around him, let alone the cold.]


(OoC: Because I am a terrible terrible person, I needed to do this scene in a post. Feel free to have someone pick Raleigh up. Note that the timeline for this is both after Anchorage as well as the Symphogear mission.)

[Well folks, it looks like there's going to be some standard day to day broadcasting here and there. But wait, what's this? It seems that one channel has an interview pop up with a pair of Jaeger pilots. Two very specific ones in fact that you are all familiar with. Raleigh and Yancy are practically drinking in the cheers of the audience before they take their seats.]

"Becketts! Good to have you here. I'm sure you've been very busy making the world safe from the Kaiju, but I'm glad that you've found time in your busy schedules to drop by."

Hey, can't exactly forget about the people we're trying to protect can we? When it boils down to it, a Ranger's just like any other man or woman. We're all human

"But the both of you are definitely something special, I can tell you that. But anyway, lets get to our questions shall we? Now we've heard that along with the PPDC, the two of you have also been working with the Unity Group, can you tell us a little about them? Nothing classified of course, just the day to day."

Yancy, you want to start us off?


Shortly after the battle of Manilla, people get this message on the U.G. comm channel:

"Ranger Yancy Beckett here! To all those that helped hold the Miracle Mile at Manila, I just want to say, good work. I'm proud to have fought alongside you. And on that note...

Beckett raises a clenched fist. "We should try forming a social club! You know, to strengthen our bonds and all that!

So what do you think: should we set up a Kaiju-Slayers club, or a Motion-Capture Piloting club?"

[Very shortly after the previous battle there seems to be another silver-haired girl wandering around Alhambra Base. In her hand is a small map with what seems to be directions to the base. The expression on her face seems to indicate that she's annoyed with something.]

First those darned guards wouldn't let me in, and now I can't even find her anywhere!

...Maybe I should have told her I was coming first.


[A bit later the same girl can be found in front of a vending machine with her fist shaking in anger. One of the bottles seems to have gotten jammed. ]

Why you...

[She seems to resign in defeat for a moment before glancing around carefully. Once she assumes that no one else is around she lifts the large machine over her head like it was a toy and starts shaking the machine wildly. Eventually the bottle of tea finally emerges from the machine and she sets the machine back down calmly.]

Haha victory is mine!

[3] [Locked to ???]

[A long day of wandering later, the girl has collapsed outside Alhambra in failure.]

Wheeerrrrrreeee are yooooouuuuuuuuuuuu!?

[She sounds utterly defeated.]

Those who stop by the Sakihama Base's main hanger bay may notice a new addition to the mecha menagerie, techs repairing minor damage to it's back and right arm.

You may recognize the mecha in question– from the news, by reputation, or from your model kits: the Kaiju-slaying Jaeger, Gispy Danger!


At the base of the Mark III Jaeger, while welding sparks rain down over their heads, two brothers in matching bomber jackets clink their bottles of beer together.

Yancy Beckett looks up as you approach, and fishes out another bottle from the cooler. "Hey there! We were just celebrating our fifth battle; care to join us?"


Later on, you can see Yancy hanging out in one of the lounges, chewing on his lip as he works on a Rubix cube. Care to offer some advice?


Around the same time, you might run across Raleigh in the gym, sweat staining his tank-top as he runs through a set of staff forms, using martial arts techniques from all over the place. Surprise attack him?
