prismphantom: (Distraught Survivor)

[When the Soleares returns it just half-lands, half-crashes.  The kind of damaged inflicted on it will do that.  But the damage to the AS is nothing compared to what its pilot just went through.]

Albhard you...

... Twice I thought I saw you die... so why...



[The strong face she had managed before finally gives way to unapologetic sobbing.]


stupidhonor: (stoic determination)

[Sielje remembers well the talk they had, about the Zehirut. And the simulated exercise with Albhard. It felt like it was just a moment ago, and now he's gone.

She approaches the sobbing wreck, eyes closed and a somber expression on her face.]
stupidhonor: (lack of heart)

What happened... was a brave and selfless act of sacrifice.

Your comrade's heroism will live on in our memory.

[She does not seem very confident while saying this, though.]
stupidhonor: (extreme emotion)

From: [personal profile] stupidhonor


...

[This dramatic feeling... it is not unfamiliar to Sielje. This is happening again.]

...

I am sorry...

Because this time... It is for certain. The realization always hits the worst after the emotions wear off.

The realization that your friend is dead, and there is no way to cheat it? It is now. This is why you feel this way.

If it is any consolation, Albhard Bailaran died a hero. Without his sacrifice, the Balmarian aces would have caused many more casualties on the battlefield before being stopped.

It was not fate. It was the hands of the enemy that did it.

...You are the last one, Selena Recital. You, and Elma.
abugslife: (hey you can see her horns for once)

From: [personal profile] abugslife


It is Cobray Gordon. I am sure of it. And he was acting weird during the battle, right at the end.
abugslife: (great enthusiasm)

From: [personal profile] abugslife


Cobray fits the descriptors. And this would not be the first time the Balmarians are acting condescending towards "inferior" species.

...Unless there is another...

It's harder after we see them manage to cheat death once...

a_linear_mind: (What did you just say?)

From: [personal profile] a_linear_mind


Don't you think you're being unfair Selena, if he was able to do any of that he would have. You should know that better than I do.

From: [personal profile] a_linear_mind


It hurts, I know it does.

...if you want someone to blame then blame me, not the person who gave up his life to save everyone there.

a_linear_mind: (What did you just say?)

From: [personal profile] a_linear_mind


No, but I was part of the group who fought the first Zehirut. Maybe if I had destroyed it sooner the Balmarians wouldn't have been able to make the adjustments they wanted to.
a_linear_mind: (So...what do you want)

From: [personal profile] a_linear_mind


Selena...

[Willis closes his eyes for a moment, trying to think of the right words to say.]

Then...try not to don't blame Albhard or anyone else that was there for their decisions either.

...

[Calvin's own Genoace made its own landing not too long after. He was still shaky from the engagement but he wanted to help. That being said he felt his words flee from him as he got closer.]

I'm sorry...
in_over_his_head: is downright hilarious (And then I swore at him.)

From: [personal profile] in_over_his_head


I can't say I know for sure if he really was giving up too easily... but you saw the damage the Grungust took...

...

[Internally he debates his next words... this may make it worse... but it may help her as well.]

... If your positions were exchanged... would you have done the same? Or let him risk being caught up in what would happen next trying to save you?
in_over_his_head: I mean seriously (I have no words)

From: [personal profile] in_over_his_head


[Calvin just grits his teeth and facepalms at his failure internally. No he was not good at this at all. But he couldn't exactly back out either.]

Nobody would have settled for it. And everybody would have some reason to want to get out alive. But think. You're an information specialist aren't you? Is he the sort of person to just give up that easily in any other moment? Correlate. Look at everything you know and think it through.

[Its all Calvin could do to hope he didn't just trip up again.]
in_over_his_head: (I don't get paid enough)

From: [personal profile] in_over_his_head


Gh!

[Calvin simply takes the hit. He probably should just quit while he's ahead.]

...Alright.... I get it.

[With nothing more to be said he leaves, unable to do anything else aside from merely making things worse.]
