>Archivehttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Shadows%20of%20Zeon>Normal RuntimeFridays and Saturdays at 10pm UK time (5pm EST; 2pm PST).>Twitter@QMKingofHearts.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47mLY8vX3L0The date is October 23rd, UC 0083... at least, you think it is. You are Commander Dominic O'Hara... right? That's still your name? Yes... you're pretty sure it is. What were you doing just now? Oh, that's right. You were visiting Rossweisse, and you suppose you must have fallen asleep at her bedside. Huh, so that would explain how you managed to find yourself in the middle of a darkened forest all of a sudden. This must be a dream... or a nightmare? Yes, judging by the suffocating pressure and the dim red of the blood-tinted moonlight, this is probably a nightmare. Looking around, you can see shadowy figures moving and shifting amidst the darkness of the trees, which themselves stand silhouetted in the red glow. Some are familiar enough to you: your teammates, your machines, your family. Others are more difficult to figure out, lying just outside the edge of your comprehension as if taunting you with only the briefest glimpses. Still more are amorphous, leaving only the fleeting impression of both their importance and the horror of the unknowable. (1/2)

>>34014943>Stare at the moon, there's something disturbing and wrong about the whole sky hereIs it a full moon?
>>34014943>>34014970THATS NO MOON
Rolled 35>>34014943Ah, the good old realization that you're in a dream. Hit the darkest parts of the forest before we wake up. Newtype, ho!
>>34015027Aye, it is. But that's not what's 'wrong' about it.
>>34015039ITs a Gunda()(F-)W A()_PFUiOr you know... sides
Rolled 49>>34014943So this is us confronting The Sorrow?Try and wake up before we drown.
Rolled 32>>34014943>Walk into the very deepest shadows, confront what lurks there (1d100)Well, this is different. What's lurking there in the shadows?
>>34014943> Explore the forest of figures, starting with those of your loved ones
>>34014943>Stare at the moon, there's something disturbing and wrong about the whole sky hereOkay, this is weird.
>>34014943>Stare at the Moon, there's something disturbing and wrong about the whole sky here.
Rolled 3It's pretty obvious the moon is a colony burning up during reentry. Walking into the forest will give us a premonition for the future probably.And the forest of figures will probably let us increase our social links amongst the newtypes on our team.So voting for the psychic premonition.>Walk into the forest
So apprently Char's talking about running Bright Quest soon. I honestly have just given it up for dead.
>>34015143The moon could also be the reflector array of the Solar System. That's potentially going to happen soon, we could be having premonitions of it.
>>34014928Also, kindly note the youtube link in the OP.It sort of sets the tone.
>>34014943>Explore the forest of figures, starting with those of your loved onesLet's grind some social links.
We're having a shared Newtype dream with Rosse, aren't we.
Rolled 93>>34015200I was thinking it could be that also after I posted. Might also be the Phallus nuking the Naval Review. I'd still bet it's a colony.
>>34014943Worried by the red light, which casts the deep shadows that seem to spawn the shades and images that swirl through the forest that surrounds you, it strikes you that something is very wrong with this whole place. Lifting your gaze to the heavens, you can now see what has filled your heart with such unnatural dread.Against the blood-red sky is a familiar silhouette: the asteroid Axis has partially eclipsed the moon, and your forest is sitting in the middle of its umbra. The faded red glow of the moon behind it feeds the long shadows, but all around it are further signs that something is amiss. Aurora streamers of brilliant crimson and gold and purple wind across the entire sky above you, and shooting stars fall all around you. Each travels across the sky in an arc towards your left, and most quickly burn themselves out. But every so often you can feel a slight wave of pressure, and in those moments you know that somewhere one of the falling stars has come to Earth. The shifting direction and intensity of light causes the shadows around you to split and swirl and dance to their own logic."Beautiful, isn't it?" you hear a voice. "I mean, in its own way."Turning to look behind you, you find Carya standing amidst the shadows, while Catrina sits on what seems to be the silhouette of a rock. Both of them seem far more real to you, untwisted by the forces that have shaped the landscape around them... though the pale glow of their bare skin does seem "otherworldly".>Talk to the 'Sisters'? (write-in questions)>Continue exploring without them.
>>34015467>Talk to the 'Sisters'Is this our past, a premonition of what's about to happen, or both?
>>34015467>Talk to the 'Sisters'?Is this dream theirs, ours, or perhaps we're both 'guests' in someone else's dream?
>>34015467> Talk to the 'Sisters'? (write-in questions)More like terrifying. This is the end, isn't it? The one where both sides kill each other off?Are you really here, or are you part of my dream?
>>34015467>Talk to the 'Sisters'? (write-in questions)"Urgh damn Newtype dreams. Is this a premonition of things to come? or a warning about the things I've done?"
Rolled 91>>34015467"You could've picked a better spot for a date.""So, if you two are here, where are the other weirdos? Shall we go searching for them?"
>>34015467>Talk to the 'Sisters'? (write-in questions)"Is the rest of the team here, too, or is it just the three of us?"
>>34015467>Talk to the 'Sisters'? (write-in questions)"Yes. I don't want to ever see it for real, though. So did we just fall asleep, or is there some sort of Newtype oversynch going on here like that one time with Haman?"
>>34015674That reminds me, when are we going to "do it" with Haman again?Get your mind out of the gutter lol I meant piloting
>>34015702Possibly once we get the Slattern. Or whatever we call it post-development. I was fond of "Helianthus" as a proposed name. But yeah, that one requires a Newtype copilot, so it would be perfect for her.
Huh, so it's Axis. That's interesting. The moon is in full lunar eclipse even with Axis occluding the light partially. Easily explained as magic. I'm thinking the tendrils being shat out by Axis indicate it's attacking the moon while the pieces falling to Earth is debris from Axis as the moon retaliates. Basically Zeon and the Federation are going to get into another pissing match.We know this OOC, so it's moot.
>>34015806Yeah sunflower was a good name.
>>34015806Or call it the Lilum Jager.
>>34015809Or it could be the Axis Shock. Doesn't quite fit, since it's red instead of green, but that could be explained by someone else using the psycoframe other than Amuro. Like Dominic, perhaps.
>>34015857If we're going with Unicorn's explanation, then red light is the one of destruction (since the Unicorn's NT-D was in charge of the psycoframe) and the green light is the one of possibility (since Banagher).So in this case, shit's going down. The falling stars are falling colonies, Axis is going to hit Earth, and everything in general is going to be fucked.
>>34015467"You could have picked a better spot for a date," you joke. Carya laughs a little to herself, but Catrina merely shrugs."You're running the show," she replies. "We're just guests.""So is this a dream, or a premonition?"Carya's laughter finally fades, and she shakes her head at you. "Neither. It's more like your subconscious mind.""You're a powerful Newtype," Catrina adds, "but none of us can really see the future."Carya walks over to you and grabs your hand. "Here, let me show you what I mean."The sisters take you into the forest, until you reach a small clearing. Before you stand... the sisters. Or rather, what's left of them: the shades of the sisters are standing back to back as their bodies are chewed apart by bullets striking them from all sides. Their faces are twisted in agony and fury, and a fine mist of their blood and shattered bones hangs around them. "Not a good day for us," Catrina observes. "But you see what's wrong with this being a premonition?"You force yourself to stare at the grisly scene before you, until you're struck by a sudden realization."There's two of you," you reply. "Catrina has her own body."Exactly," Carya tells you. "It can't be literal, so from there the whole notion of it being the future kind of falls apart.""Then what is it?""Your own worries," Catrina replies. "Specifically, fear of losing people you love. The others are all here too.""Are you really here?" you ask them suddenly. "How do I know you aren't part of the dream?""You can't," Carya replies. "At least not until you wake up. But we've been here before, and you've been to our subconscious before. It's just that usually none of the three of us remember doing it.""And remember," Catrina adds, "we're always with you Dom... and we always will be. So relax a little and just trust us for now, 'kay?"(1/2)
>>34015920"I see," you reply, a little disappointed that you can't know for sure whether the sisters are really with you or not, but willing to take it on faith for the time. "So all this is probably symbolic? And we can't take it as literal...">Ask what they think about something?>Continue exploring the Forest (1d100)>Try to wake up (1d100)
Rolled 7>>34015961>>Continue exploring the Forest (1d100)Adventure
>>34015906Was that how it worked? I never quite got where they were going with that. But if that's the case then yeah, that fits perfectly.
Rolled 11>>34015961> Continue exploring the Forest (1d100)
Rolled 93>>34015961>Try to wake up (1d100)I don't wanna be eaten by a Grue.

Best girls. All of them.
Rolled 39>>34015961>Continue exploring the Forest (1d100)
Rolled 47>>34015961>Explore zero forest!
Rolled 41>>34015961>Continue exploring the forest
>>34016050>>34016017>>34015991Way to go turbofags, now we're stuck with shitty ass rolls.
Rolled 40>>34015961>Try to wake up (1d100)Nope. Newtype dreams suck.
>>34015961Should we point out that we now have the ability to engage in a traditional. threesome? Seems a shame to let the opportunity go to waste
Rolled 69>>34015961Try and split our senses. If this is our dream and since we realize it's a dream, we should be capable of making our 'sight' fly throughout a dreamscape while we sit and talk to the twins.All it takes is a little bit of imagination in Dreamland.
>>34016010Basically. When Banagher gets in charge of the machine in episode 5 (I think, the one where the Garancieres gets into orbit with the recently freed Marida aboard) the Unicorn's red psycoframe becomes green.
>>34016125No, I've seen the series. I just didn't know that's what that meant. I thought they were just doing a callback to Amuro. So what does the yellow psychoframe on the Neo Zeong mean? Denied possibilities, maybe?
>>34016180Dunno, considering Frontal's Ideals, stagnation maybe? To counter the "possibilities" and "destruction".
>>34016100sounds amusing to at least mention
>>34016180I'd guess so. Or that a not fully awakened Newtype was in charge of the machine. That's why Ridhe's Banshee and the Neo Zeong were glowing yellow.If so, then the colors fit the "awakened" status of the pilot - red means that the Newtype isn't fully awakened, yellow that he's awakening to his potential, to green where the Newtype is fully capable of breaking the laws of physics. Also, they fit the color spectrum - from red through yellow to green.Then again, it's possible we're putting way more thought into this than the authors themselves.
Rolled 36>>34016332"We're Bandai, we ain't know display shit we be speaking mang!"
>>34016332Possibly, but Banana only was Red or Green. I'd consider at that point that Riddhe wanted to keep things as they were, which is similar to the idea of stagnation I mentioned >>34016231But to be honest we're looking at this too in-depth, because the most depth Unicorn had was Sieg Zeon and "!Fuck yeah! Look at all these old suits kick ass!".
>>34016435Possible that it's stagnation as well.Then again, this thing exists and its psycoframe is fucking blue. So >>34016406 is right and they just went for what looks cool and what would sell.
>>34015961"You know," you observe casually, "we could actually have a literal threesome here, now that you both have bodies."Catrina laughs, but Carya shakes her head. "Remember you're still sleeping by Rossweisse's bed. If you want to risk a wet dream, be our guest." Catrina laughs even harder as you move through the forest towards some of the shifting shadows just beyond where you saw the sisters being eviscerated. One of them is a great, lumbering thing that stays just outside your reach, and eventually disappears into what appears to be an open grave dug into a low hillside. As you approach the grave, you feel the hair stand up on your neck, and your skin starts to burn and peel. With a cry of pain you stumble back and away from the grave, and into Carya's arms.Suddenly, the burns are gone entirely, and the grave stands empty before you."Are you okay?" Catrina asks, worried about the pain she sensed."Yeah," you insist. "No clue what that was about.""Nevermind that, look up there!" Catrina tells the two of you. High in the sky you see four balls of white light that rapidly fade and cool into a dull orange, then red, then finally a deep violet. The auroras flare up and slither across the sky, resonating with the lights.Just beyond the moon, you swear you can see Mars shining like a blood-red ruby, glittering with a malevolence that makes you shudder.Then, as suddenly as you found yourself in the dream-world, you sit up next to Rossweisse's bed on the Albion. You're fully clothed again, too... well, that's everyone else's loss, you suppose. "You okay?" Carya asks behind you, rising from her chair.>Final chance to ask the Sisters something about your 'dreams'>Ask how the Sisters' dreams have been lately?>Move on. You can figure out what just happened later.
>>34016594>Move on. You can figure out what just happened later.I don't think we should read too much into our dreams, and we have more pressing issues.
>>34016594>Final chance to ask the Sisters something about your 'dreams'"Did you see that too?"
>>34016594> Final chance to ask the Sisters something about your 'dreams'
>>34016701Sooo... what question do you want asked?
>>34016774Do they remember the dream, and what do they think it meant?
>>34016774What color is the moon?
Rolled 88>>34016594>Final chance to ask the Sisters something about your 'dreams
>>34016774If they saw it too. And if they did, what's their take on it? How crazy are we, Doctor Marseilles?
>>34016860She be thikin we cray, nigguh
>>34016594>Final chance to ask the Sisters something about your 'dreams'What was that thing that went into the grave.
So, are we going to be overprotective of CC now that we've seen her die in our dreams?
Rolled 58>>34016594"Yeah denied a threesome.""Just dreams. A little too vivid with you dieing and being eviscerated."
>>34016934Nah, I'm sure it's something Dom already worries about. Such is the problem with dating your wingman. Which it occurs to me has a double meaning, seeing how CC has been trying to hook him up with the other Newtype girls. Huh. Neat.
>>34017001CC best pimp
>>34017021CC best period.
>>34017103Strike bitches?I can get behind it.
>>34016594"Yeah, just that that dream was a bit too vivid," you explain. "Especially the part with the two of you getting killed.""Yeah," Catrina replies, scratching her sister's head, "that's kind of a whole thing. It happens.""But you saw that shit, right? At the end?""Looked like high altitude nukes," Catrina tells you. "No idea what they signify, but it can't be good."Carya nods. "Yeah, but I wish I knew what that shadow you chased was. It looked humanoid, but kinda bulky. I got a sense of weight, but aside from that it was way too vague to act on.""Well," you conclude. "I'm glad it's over, at least.""Hang on, cowboy," Catrina tells you. "Who said you were done?""Karen's about to call a meeting," Carya adds, "so we need you to wake up."Then, as suddenly as you found yourself in the dream-world, you sit up next to Rossweisse's bed on the Albion. You're fully clothed again, too... well, that's everyone else's loss, you suppose. Wait, didn't you just do this?>Test to see if you're really awake this time>Wake Rossweisse, tell her about the meeting>Don't be silly, of course you're awake. Head back to your room, and let Rossweisse sleep in. She's earned it.>Other
>>34017161>Other"That wasn't funny."
>>34017161>>Test to see if you're really awake this timeAnd the perfect test is to eat our sidearm.
>>34017161>>Don't be silly, of course you're awake. Head back to your room, and let Rossweisse sleep in. She's earned it.
>>34017161Wake Rossweisse, tell her about the meeting
Rolled 9>>34017161Pinch ourselves. Hard.Go and grab a pot of coffee. The entire pot. Go to the meeting.
>>34017161> Don't be silly, of course you're awake. Head back to your room, and let Rossweisse sleep in. She's earned it.Do we know what the GP-02 looks like? Because we just dreamed about chasing it and dying to the nuke.
>>34017161>Test to see if you're really awake this timeAcquire animal crackers. If they aren't present, then we're back to reality.
>>34017161>Test to see if you're really awake this time
>>34017264I feel like you're still taking it too literally.
>>34017161>Wake Rossweisse, tell her about the meetingAsk her if she feels up to it, if not, let her go back to sleep.
>>34017161"Not funny," you mutter mutinously. Still, it does suggest you should find a way to check to see if you're really awake this time.You search your person for animal crackers, but only come up with your service sidearm. Well, that'll have to do. You quickly eject the magazine and check the chamber: you carry in condition three aboard ship, so there's no round loaded in the chamber. Then, you open your mouth and give the slide a few probing bites. Each time your teeth meet solid, room-temperature metal: it tastes and smells like gun oil."Yup," you nod as you replace the magazine and return your sidearm to its holster, "that's real."Suddenly, you're very much aware that Rossweisse is staring at you in confusion."... what?""I got hungry," you lie. "I'll probably have to settle for coffee. You feeling better? There's a meeting in a few minutes with Karen if you;re feeling up to it."Rossweisse nods and sits up, only to find that she's not wearing anything from the waist up as the sheets fall around her thighs. With a slight blush she covers her chest with one arm, and pushes against your forehead with one hand."Out," she tells you with a grin.You turn to leave her quarters. "Sure, see you there."It'll be a few minutes before the meeting, so you have time to drop in on someone beforehand...>Show up to the meeting early>Haman>Audrey>Team Secretary>Other
>HamanAll hail our Spiritu-err Newtype Liege, Haman Karn!
>>34017697> HamanLets see how she's doing. Maybe she heard of this Gato guy.
>>34017697I made the suggestion to eat your gun as a joke, but you went and made it seem in-character. Goddammit.
>>34017697>OtherLet's get some breakfast, maybe we can run to the meeting with toast in our mouth.
>Gato tries to slag the feds>Point out how we have a Zeon Ace and the daughter of the former leader of Axis on our squad.Problem Zekes?
>>34017697Hit Gato's cell. We've still got to give him the muh ideals.
>>34017804Is that a good goddammit or a bad goddammit?Because after waking up from a dream like that, gnawing on something is a pretty low degree of craziness compared to what would be possible.
>>34017792Does anyone else think it's odd we've got Blitzen with us still? Haman's clear of any status as a Zeon sympathizer by the time we've spent with her, but we don't really know Catherine that well and we met her as a prisoner taken from the Delaz Fleet. Kind of weird we haven't sandboxed her.
>>34017867No but I like her so...
>>34017867We rolled a 99 to seduce with food.And are you really complaining?She qtp2t
>>34017980Much better than her rival.
>>34017980>someone named that picture the same way I didwut, are you me?
When's Amuro going to show up in this quest?
>>34018094We are all you, Anon.All of us.
Rolled 90>>34018094Heh, got this one named the same way.
>>34018127He is still probably under house arrest since he is the Feddie's most powerful newtype and they are scared shitless of newtypes.
Rolled 46>>34018207>they are scared shitless of newtypes.Yet we got 5 of them on our team. One who's a damn Ginger. Federation should be far more scared of us, yet we got, well mostly got, our freedom.
>>34017697>HamanYou know that Haman is down on the hangar deck, so you head there as well. She's the only combatant you haven't seen since bringing Rossweisse in, and you still haven't properly thanked her for her role in the whole ordeal. Along the way, you stop by the galley and grab a whole pot of coffee. "Morning, Haman," you greet the red-haired Newtype as she handles some routine maintenance on the psycommu system you captured with her. You look her over, and see that her appearance has changed. Her hair is now long enough to tie into a proper chignon, which she's done, and she seems to be wearing a sleeveless shirt cut like a Zeon dress uniform over a skirt and stockings: all in black."Morning," she replies, pulling her arm back out of the open panel and leaning against the machine before sliding down to the deck. "How is Rossweisse?""Better," you reply. "At least good enough to get back in the game.""That's good."You sit down next to her and take a long pull at the lukewarm coffee before speaking. "I wanted to thank you for everything you did yesterday. You really pulled our asses out of the fire there."Haman leans against your shoulder and snags the pot of coffee from your hand. "No big deal," she tells you. "I wish I could have helped Bate though. I can't believe those Zeon fools actually used nuclear weapons against us.""They were desperate," you explain. "Conventions of warfare go out the window when you have your enemy cornered.""I wonder if the civilians loyal to the Principality's ideals will react similarly?" Haman wonders aloud. "A few months ago, I might have done something similar.""What changed your mind?"Haman shrugs. "My kidnappers turned out to be the 'good guys'. That tends to shift one's worldview somewhat."The two of you sit for a while and enjoy the terrible coffee before heading back up to the ready room. Karen, your fellow pilots, and the secretaries are already waiting for you.(1/2)
>>34018247I keep forgetting Dom has red hair.And every time I remember, I die a little inside.
>>34018247Yeah, we're a bigger threat to the Federation than Amuro is at this point. We're not just an extremely powerful Newtype, we're also in charge of our own unit with little operational oversight. A fact that we have taken advantage of to recruit multiple Zeon defectors and steal a test subject from one of the Titans' Cyber-Newtype projects. I don't know how we haven't been court-martialed yet. I can only assume that Hearts is holding off on it for a dramatically appropriate moment.
>>34018247Amuro is goddamn next level. His magic space powers stopped Axis from destroying the Earth. And the next most powerful newtype is only 14 years old.
>>34018331He's not there yet. He will be in a decade, but right now Amuro's not the ultimate Newtype. And who's to say how powerful we'll be by the time psychoframe is invented?
>>34018310"So," Karen begins as you sit, "you want the good news or the bad news?"Haman squeezes in next to you on the couch, momentarily triumphant over the Sisters, who have been edged out. But since Rossweisse is sitting to your left already, Catrina instead slides over Haman to lay across the three of you, completely ignoring the situation.Audrey raises an eyebrow at you, to which you can only shrug. >Good news>Bad news>Share some of what you suspect based on the dreams (what, exactly?)
>>34018321We've got pornomancer vibes and Zeon royalty on our team. Wouldn't be too difficult to go rogue and start our own faction with detractors from both camps.
Rolled 90>>34018331He's not THAT strong of a Newtype (Jew Dough and Autism out rank in in strength) but he's a pretty damn good pilot. He's only ONE person though, we're 5 pilots and 5 Newtypes combined into one unit. That includes two (well three) famous Aces
>>34018414>Bad newsGive us the bitter pill first.
>>34018414"Which ones involves punching Gato?"
Rolled 12>>34018414>"Well considering I dreamed of Nukes last night, I'll hazard a guess and say GP-02A actually wasn't in there and the nuke + suit is still missing?">Catrina instead slides over Haman to lay across the three of youI fucking love her so much. Sisters are BEST WAIFUS.
>>34018414> Bad news
>>34018414>Bad newsWhy can't we have a good news-bad news-good news sandwich?
>>34018414>Bad News"Let me guess. the Phallus is still on the loose.">Good news"Do I get to grill Gato on his ideals?"
>>34017697>>Hamanflat chests are justice, aren't they, Dom?
>>34018419Judau never refined his abilities. Amuro had around 20 years of experience killing people. Plus Amuro is probably the best overall newtype pilot. How can you compete with a guy who stopped an asteroid?
Rolled 76>>34018527Oh she ain't got a flatchest, that's for sure.
>>34018531I thought is was that Amuro was the best pilot but Judou and Kamile were better NewtypesOr something
>>34018621I was talking about Rossweisse.Also hurk at late vote and gdi CC...Though I kinda like this game of oneupmanship...>>34018414>bad news
>>34018531Judau was piloting for much longer than Amuro, because Amuro kicked the bucket, whilst Jewdough was piloting into Victory eras.But it's mostly irrelevant. >>34018645That's the theory, but it's getting into Goku vs Superman levels of retarded. Each of them probably had their own strengths and weaknesses.
>>34018696>Crossbone>Not garbage that should be igorned
>>34018765>Dissing CrossboneGet out.
>>34018765No, it's not.Just because you don't like it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist. Also it's a Victory side-story I was mentioning.
>>34018832What does it have to offer? >>34018860I never said it doesn't exist. Just shouldn't be revered as it is.
>>34018414"Can't it ever be good news, bad news, good news?" you ask. "Like a news sandwich?" "So like a shit sandwich," Audrey replies, "but like on really good sourdough?" "Yeah, that'd work.""Maybe," Karen replies thoughtfully. "Good news is the HLV was shot down by the Dendrobium a few hours ago.""And the bad news is that the GP-02 might not have been on it," you continue.Karen nods. "Yup. Gato being here raises the distinct possibility that the suit was never on the HLV, and was transferred somewhere along the way.""So what do we do from here?" Audrey asks. "Or rather, what does the Federation expect us to do?""That's the good news," Reiko explains. "I got permission to spend a few days on site trying to puzzle it out before the Albion is redeployed.""And we have the prisoners from Kinbareid and the Mad Angler," Karen reminds you, "including Gato himself.""Gato's not going to say anything, in all likelihood," Catherine admits with a frown. "His type are die-hards. They'd literally rather eat a bullet than betray their precious ideals.""My, your tune seems to have changed," Haman observes. "I'm sorry I doubted you at first.""If they want forgiveness," Catherine replies tersely, "I'll find 'em a priest. So far as I'm concerned, Zeon betrayed me first."Carya nods in agreement "Amen, sister.""Halle-fucking-lujah," Catrina adds, bumping fists with Blitzen."So, Dominic," Karen continues, "I suppose you want to take point on this?">Sure, I'll interrogate Gato>Sure, I'll take the ranking sub officer>Screw it, we can all take turns grilling them both>Actually, I was hoping to follow up on a hunch (tell them a little about the dreams?)
>>34018531Yeah, except like half of that is him being kept under house arrest.Considering that he was able to take out a MS with an unarmed transport plane, with effectively half a year of experience under his belt, I'd say that's pretty damn impressive.
>>34018981> Sure, I'll interrogate Gato> Actually, I was hoping to follow up on a hunch (tell them a little about the dreams?)There's something going on with the GP-02 and Axis. Wouldn't be surprised if it's on its way over there. Or that someone over there will be targeting us specifically - and they'll go so far to drop a nuke on us.
Rolled 75>>34018981>Screw it, we can all take turns grilling them bothSisters can Bad Cop Gato first, we be Good Cop second.
>>34018981Whilst part of me wants to interrogate Gato, just so we can stand around and mock him, it's not likely to get any useful results.>Actually, I was hoping to follow up on a hunch (tell them a little about the dreams?)I wouldn't actually tell them about the dreams, I'd try and find the locations we saw in it with our collection of maps. Primarily the forest and the small hill where we noticed the lumbering giant shadow.
>>34019121>nuke usConsidering our skin starts to burn and peel in the dream and we're after a giant shadow (probably the Phallus), the chances of us being vaporized is pretty high.
>>34018981>Actually, I was hoping to follow up on a hunch (tell them a little about the dreams?)Really, trying to interrogate Gato will give us nothing.
>>34018981>Actually, I was hoping to follow up on a hunch (tell them a little about the dreams?)
>>34018981>Sure, I'll take the ranking sub officer
>>34018981Our best chance of actually finding out where they stashed the 02 is to let Gato go. Not necessarily LET him go, but make his escape appear legitimate in his mind. Lax security (basically putting Monsha on station) during a prisoner transfer between cells would give him the motivation to try and go AWOL. We lowjack a corefighter with a laser relay set up to transmit sporadically in bursts to a satellite. Have the thing setting on the launch catapult so he comes out and instantly goes for the vehicle.
>>34019200I'm assuming that the new leaders of Axis and the Delaz Fleet will be more in touch now that Haman is here. And that they'd be willing to kill her at any cost, considering how in a way she's the rightful leader of Axis now that her dad's dead.On the other hand, there's also the probability of them just nuking us because we own 4 Gundams. And that someone higher up leaked that info to them because we were digging around their secrets.
>>34018981>Sure, I'll take the ranking sub officerIn any case, try to find out who the spare pilot for the GP02 is at least.A shame since I had a scenario in my mind of bringing a slice of cake along (Gato/gateau, y'know) and at some point Gato gets told "You can't have your cake and eat it too."I can't seem to make it work though, so I went with another vote.
I think you guys are over-estimating the importance of the dream. Delaz probably don't even know that much about Axis' movement. And considering how long it takes to travel between the two, it's unlikely that they care too much. Yes, there are 4 Gundams, but they don't know that. Heck most of the EF think we're in slightly modified GMs. You're forgetting our units are off the record, which is why we had to strong-arm Nina in the first place.And Finally, no-one is going to give a shit about Haman. Enzo could pretty much say "No Haman was shot down by the evil Devil's Jester, this is just someone he claims is Haman. Kill him" and the Zeeks would follow him.
>>34019500It did give us an in-character clue about Mars Zeon.
>>34018981"As much as I'd like to make interrogating that lot a group bonding exercise," you reply, "there are a few things I'd like to mull over. I have a couple of hunches I've got that might turn into leads.""Newtypey stuff?" Reiko asks with an immediate interest. "That's gonna be so cool! I never get to see you guys solving problems up close. I'm always just watching a viewscreen, and it's so boring."You simply nod in response. "Yup. It won't be much to look at, but you can watch.""I'd be happy to help," Carya offers from Rossweisse's lap, immediately understanding your intent. "Besides, it's not like you can seduce Gato or something, so maybe we should let someone else try to interrogate him."Karen nods. "Alright, we've got him in the holding room. Who wants to have a go at him?"Haman raises her hand immediately. "I think I can soften him up. I'd appreciate it if you let me go first.""Right," Karen replies. "You can go first."Audrey nods. "I think then South should try it. Gato may respond better to someone older than any of us. A man, and someone who obviously fought in the war.""Sure, I'll get him onboard."Your group leaves the comfort of the ready room and heads down to a holding cell that has been hastily converted by the MPs into an interrogation room. Haman seems ready, but you're not entirely sure what she has planned.>Have her run her plan past you first>Give her some advice>Just let her do her thing.

>>34019612>Have her run her plan past you first>>34019623Nah we don't like the Devil's Jester nickname, which means he's probably more likely to latch onto it. He probably watched our conversation with the Admiral and Char

Rolled 38>>34019612>Have her run her plan past you first
>>34019612>>Have her run her plan past you firstJust so we don't fuck it up.
>>34019708I wasn't being rude, but Enzo had shit pretty much under his thumb when he wasn't even in control. If he's the only one there, then he had total control, and no-one aside from Mashymre will remember Haman. Looks like Glemy Toto is the only hope for Axis.
>>34019743Unlike running a quest, writing smut is something I've actually done before this. So I've been going over that to see what I did poorly and what I did well.Maybe next weekend. I'll have some time after I hand in my dissertation this week.
>>34019833I think KoH was implying that you're underestimating how devious the Zekes are. Remember, Haman was the one that supplied the Delaz fleet with the Neue Ziel, and apparently Enzo made a gamble that might end up improving his faction's long-term production capabilities by moving to Mars. At this point there's really no telling what might happen, and all we have to go on are the 'hunches' based on Dom's subconscious trying to tell him something.
Rolled 11>>34019612>>Have her run her plan past you first
>>34019612"So what are you thinking?" you ask Haman. "How do you plan to get Gato to talk?""It's simple. I would never get him to talk, so I'll have to settle for hurting him," she explains. "And I know just how to do that. I'll crush him without even raising my voice, or lifting a finger. That will allow others with more patience and experience in these matters than I to exploit his weakness.""Are you sure you can do that?" you ask. "Are you sure you want to?""Positive," she replies. "A murderous zealot deserves no quarter, and I won't hesitate to face such men if need be. In this case, it may be harsh, but it may also be better than handing him back over to the Federation."True, there are plenty in the Federation intelligence community who would break a man's fingers to break his spirit. But coming from Haman... you can't help but sense that watching her allies fight their way through a nuclear minefield has hardened her towards anything she sees as a threat. And right now, you reckon, she sees Zeon as such a threat.>Watch her deal with Gato as you talk with the rest of your team about your thoughts.

>>34020281"Okay, Haman," you tell her with a shrug. "I'll be watching to make sure you don't overdo it, but I'll leave it to you."Haman leans in and gives you a quick kiss on the cheek. "Don't concern yourself with me," she tells you. "I've seen the sort of villainous bastards we're up against. I don't intend to turn out like them."Then, Haman steps into the room, and sits down in front of Gato. You can hear her voice through the glass, but not Gato's. You can, however, feel his anger building.>"So, Anavel Gato. Do you know who I am?""I've been thinking," you tell the rest of your team. "There are three possibilities: that the Gundam was on the HLV and was destroyed, that it's hidden on land, or that it sank with the submarine.">"Good, that means we can skip the introductions. Do you know why I'm here?">"... no, that's wrong, Gato. I'm just here to have a chat. That's all. So, I heard Nina talking earlier. Apparently you two were an item at one point?""The submarine was outbound from the river delta, and Gato ended up in Kinareid, meaning that searching the sub is a waste of time," Karen concludes."So that leaves Africa... and we only know it landed at the Zambezi river." Audrey adds."Reiko," Karen asks. "Could you bring us a map of the east coast of Africa?">"So what made you decide to abandon her like that? ... your 'ideals', you say? Well, let's see how well you did on that front, shall we? For one thing you used nuclear weapons in violation of the Antarctic treaty, which is a disaster for the Principality remnants' political position. The Federation's citizens are still well aware that nuclear war would lead to a repeat of the opening week of the War, and nobody wants that. So I'd say you owe Miss Purpleton an apology, if THAT is what you broke her heart to accomplish.""Here," Reiko tells you as she spreads a map out across the table.

"The area's just too damn big!""Maybe we can narrow the search radius somehow," Audrey offers. "Limiting the radius will help narrow possible hiding spots to check.">"So, you realize that Nina's been pretty interested that Uraki guy, right? The one you didn't even know his name?">"Hey, no need to get angry, I'm just making conversation. Besides, your first love is Zeon, isn't it? You can't have your cake and eat it too, Gato.""That's harsh," you comment as you stare at the Selous game reserve on the map."It's true though," Catrina observes. "And it feels like Gato realizes it. Wonder how he knew?""Orville," Rossweisse reminds you."That's right, they had a mole on our ship who probably knew we had a Gundam," Karen nods. "But due to how poor communication must have been, they may not have known as much until AFTER Gato actually got to Kinbareid.">"So, how does it feel, Gato? Knowing that the woman you loved and abandoned is with a man who you didn't even think to remember? He's just a teenager, too... but then again, I'm sure a nineteen-year-old boy would have plenty of energy, at least. Youthful enthusiasm must count for something in bed."You can feel that Gato is enraged at the topic Haman raised, but at least part of his anger is aimed inward. At least a part of him realizes that he made this decision for himself, and that he could have stayed with Nina on the moon were it not for his 'ideals'."That dream," Carya asks you. "The one where the shadow fell into an open grave, and then you were burned... you think that could have symbolized the GP-02?""Oooh," Reiko adds. "Cool Newtype dreams!? How cool was it? Was it like lucid dreaming, or was it more like an acid trip?"(1/2)
>>34021265>"Oooh," Reiko adds. "Cool Newtype dreams!? How cool was it? Was it like lucid dreaming, or was it more like an acid trip?"She's so cute.

>>34021265"Neither, really. Everyone was naked.""Really?" Reiko asks incredulously. "Why?"You shrug. "Apparently x-ray vision is part of being a Newtype. There's a lot of nudity involved all around. But don't worry, I think my dream probably did you justice." You don't bother to tell her you never saw her in your dream, nor that if you had she probably would have been dying in gruesome agony.>"Don't worry, Gato. I'm sure she'll be very happy, moaning his name as he violates her body from now on. And I'm sure your dear, departed Zabi role models appreciate your personal sacrifices to continue their insane war. As for the shame of having devoted your life to such a foolish cause? That'll never go away. The innocent blood on your hands and those of your Zeon compatriots won't either.">"So no, Gato, I'm not here to interrogate you. I'm not even here to torture you. I'm just here to remind you of your own sins, and your own mistakes. Because letting you live as the foolish man you are, especially after you've ruined your own personal life and your standing as a soldier all at once, is the cruelest thing I can inflict on you.">"Goodbye, foolish little Anavel. I doubt we'll meet again, in this life or the next.""Sounds like they're wrapping up," Karen comments."I think he might cry," Catrina adds. "The thought of a guy like Uraki getting your girl on the rebound would drive any man up the wall, but now he's also thinking about all the things Zeon's had him do that destroyed his life. That's just mean.""So, the dream had the GP-02 falling into a grave," Carya recounts. "A grave on a hill, in a forest.">Focus on deciphering the meaning of the grave (1d100)>Focus on the meaning of the hills (1d100)>Focus on the trees and their meaning (1d100)Feel free to advance your own theories.
>>34021751Damn, Haman. You are amazing, girl.
Rolled 34>>34021751>>Focus on deciphering the meaning of the grave (1d100)Simplest theory is that the gp02 falling into the grave is that it gets destroyed, it's been a while since I've seen Stardust Memory.

Rolled 76>>34021751>Focus on the meaning of the hills (1d100)

Rolled 8>>34021751>>Focus on the trees and their meaning (1d100)He buried it.
Rolled 71>>34021751> Grave on the hill
>>34021751Also, I intend to give you some extra time to try and puzzle this out. If you can figure it out, you're guaranteed to find the GP-02. If you come close but not quite, or you just roll pretty well, you may still be able to puzzle it out before the EFF redeploys the Albion and considers the GP-02 lost in the HLV shoot-down.
Rolled 4>>34021751>Focus on deciphering the meaning of the grave (1d100)An underground space, so maybe Jaburo? I remember that one of the editions of Gihren's Greed has a cutscene of the GP02 nuking Jaburo as its intro, so Hearts might be taking inspiration from that.
Rolled 45>>34021751The Shadow. Did it have a distinct shape? Or was it an amorphous blob? Did the Shadow appear to be stalking us or were we actively following it?
>>34021908We were following it. And it was large and ponderous, which is why we're assuming it's the GP02.
Rolled 91>>34021751>Focus on the meaning of the hills (1d100)Gonna go with an absurd theory and let dice decide if it's plausible.They pulled off a Judau and buried it beneath a pile of junk metal.A random kid would probably accidentally fall into the cockpit at some point in the future too.Otherwise, the only nearby UC relevant piece of land in Africa that may symbolize a hill is Kilimanjaro.
>>34021937We also got burned as we approached the grave it fell into.I feel like that's significant, and I feel like the answer is just right there.
>>34021999 Kilamanjaro is a volcano
Rolled 98>>34021937Large and ponderous can mean any number of things. If it is vaguely humanoid we can assume it's a mobile suit of some sort. It could signify Gato's attempt at hiding it. The grave would mean it's buried while the hills/trees would signify a specific landmark to look for. Could the trees or hills be an indication as to which direction to follow him? Do we know how far we followed the shadow in the dream?
Okay. So we pursued a shadow to an open pit, the pit burned, and then it was gone. Which kind of sounds like what happened here. We pursued the GP02 to the Kinbareid mines, there was lots of fire in the form of nukes and launching rockets, and then we lost track of where it went. And in the dream, after the pit burned there were four balls of light in the sky that faded from white to orange to red to dull violet. What could those mean?
Rolled 91>>34022033>the minesA possible secondary exit or entrance? Most modern mines have another way in or out in case of emergency. They might have smuggled it out on rail carts.
>>34022033Where did the Zekes even get those nukes, again?
Rolled 25>>34022093They were abandoned as the Feds retreated from the mines.
>>34022072Kinbareid mine is an open-pit strip mine.
>>34022033Ah, I think I know why we were burnt. It's booby-trapped. If we approach it the nuke is set to go off.
>>34022018Isn't Kilamanjaro a Titans base later on? in b4 Zeon unwittingly handed it to the pre-Titans dudes.
>>34022093According to the narration, they retrieved it from the Iringa mine in Tanzania. Not sure what nuclear landmines were doing at Iringa, but that's where they got them from.
>>34022147Could be. What are the four balls of light, though?
You guys want five more minutes or so to work it out, or shall I just go with the winning vote?
>>34022121>open pit strip mineThe Zekes still hid an HLV SOMEHOW. There's a shaft leading somewhere. I'll propose my theory again that Gato pulled a Shiro Amada and found an underwater cave to hide the thing.>>34022200I'd say us.
>>34022246Camouflage netting is a thing.
>>34022200>What are the four ballsA Krogan?
>>34022218Go with whatever won, I suppose?Speculation would go into greater and even more absurd lengths if left unchecked otherwise.
>>34022283That is true. And there was no water mentioned. So it's camo netted and hidden. It's on the surface and I'd wager it's nearby. Have we inspected the shaft the HLV shot out of yet? I know we haven't done so in the thread, but on our off hour.

"We can't assume the place we saw has anything to do with the location of the GP-02. It burned you, though, remember? Your skin was peeling and everything.""We also saw those nukes," Catrina reminds you. "That could be important.""It could be hidden near the mine?" Karen offers. "It's possible we missed something."Audrey shakes her head. "I doubt it, but Kinbareid is a good place to start assuming they had to hide it quickly.""So, any luck?" Haman asks as she rejoins you. "Also, that felt way more cathartic than it had any right to.""Scary," Catherine comments. "No luck, really," you admit, "though we've narrowed the suspected spots it could have been buried to someplace underground. Likely a mine.""There was an old mine at Kilimanjaro," Haman suggests. "Maybe it's there?""That's a good distance from Kinbareid," Carya points out. "But Haman does have a point: Kinbareid isn't the ONLY mine in Tanzania.""So," Karen announces. "We canvass Kinbareid again to start off with, and work our way out from there, placing priority on checking Kilimajaro. Sound like a plan?">Yes>Modify the planDue to work I want to get done by Monday morning, I need to turn in soon. This will be the last vote for the thread.
Look, either prophetic dreams are useless without the benefit on hindsight, trap you into following your destiny and realizing you have no free will, or are one of many possibilities, and are functionally useless.I don't know why everybody wants to read into portents and such, we all know Destiny is a giant pile of shit.
Rolled 58>>34022498>YesSounds good to me.
>>34022498>YesWorks for me. And don't worry about how much you enjoyed crushing a man's spirit, Haman. It's half the fun of this job.

>>34022498I don't like this. It's almost too easy. Nothing is ever this easy. It's a trap. It has to be. The Phallus is here. There is no way Gato had the time to move the mobile suit all the way there and come back here to be captured. Look at the mountain pass we could have come in through. Does it match up with the hills in our Newtype induced insanity?
>>34022635So the Nuke we're afraid of was the land mine?
Rolled 46>>34022602I didn't mean it in that sense, meant more of the embarrassment/arousal sense.

>>34022630>pic related even?
>>34022630Yeah, Haman being dominating and strong-willed is a feature, not a bug.
>>34022661They've almost certainly rigged the location where the Phallus is being kept under wraps with nuclear mines.Our skin was peeling and we were suffering catastrophic burns - which signifies radiation burns.

He's just lamenting his shattered hopes and dreams."As your team files out, you notice the Sisters and Rossweisse making motions at Haman with their hands, and trying to be sneaky about it. Playing along, you walk out into the hall, only to be tailed by Haman as you head towards your quarters. Finally, as you reach for the door, Haman slides herself in front of you."Dominic?" she begins. "I've made up my mind.""Oh? About what?""I think you know already," she tells you, grabbing your shirt with both hands and pulling you closer. "But here's the thing. I'm not going to ask if it's okay.""... okay?"Haman grins wickedly at you. "That's right. I'll get what I want, and you're going to give it to me. I don't want you to be okay with it, I want you to tell me that YOU want it."She rises up on her toes and pulls irresistibly down on your collar, and kisses you... deeply, insistently, and sensually. After what feels like an eternity, she releases you. "I look forward to hearing your response," she tells you before slipping away towards her own quarters.Well, that certainly was new.>Until next weekend

Rolled 55>>34023042Sheeiiiit. Great thread, KoH, look forward to every one!
>>34023122I did enjoy. Personally, I thought Haman crushing Gato was the high point. That was a nicely written section. Not to say that the thread wasn't good overall. See you next time, Hearts.
Honeslty I didn't really like the dream sequence that much, but having Haman go Queen Bitch and break Gato's spirit was fucking delicious.
>>34023122Will thank you op and no Team Secretary that make me sad.
>>34023203The dream sequence was a calculated risk. I wanted to try and give you some direction without the risk of accidentally giving you the solution to finding the GP-02. But you're more or less on the right track, and even though I feel it got a bit bogged down it did its job overall.May or may not briefly visit someone else's subconscious at some point to draw a distinction. Depends on if enough people really decide that the first trip to dreamland sucked.
>>34023373It sorta seemed like Haman changed a lot in this thread.
>Twins are kill>Shadow Phallus disappear into a grave on a low hillside>hair stands up on neck, skin peels and burns>burns gone, grave empty>four krogan balls of white lightIs the basic gist.Depending on the size of the mine (stripe mines are fuckhuge), the 02 could easily be hidden right under feet or buried in the side of the mine itself.
>>34023416I think she realized how much she liked being forceful and dominating and is letting some of that come into her interactions with Dom. This is still Haman Karn we're dealing with, after all.
>>34023483Eh, I liked the mentor vibe we had with her. Not sure I like this direction.
>>34023373I like it. It was out there.
>>34023503We can mentor her in other ways, anon.
>>34023503Oh, I think we're still going to be the mentor role. She's just going to be a bit more assertive. Think of it as the fantasy where the student seduces her teacher.
>>34023503I'm certain I don't. Oh well.
>>34023454I wonder if they disguised it as mining equipment. It worked in Bright Quest...
>>34023416This side of her always existed, and seeing her former faction nearly nuke the man she loves brought it out a little.It's just that in this universe it seems like something she avoids until she needs to protect something she cares about or her sense of justice is offended. In this case, Gato managed to do both.
>>34023594So, KoH, will the girls in your fapfic have their own kinks or...? I already said what I imagine each'd be like, but I wanted to know what you thought.
>>34023638Amusingly enough, I always saw Haman as a sub.
>>34023675I am strangely okay with this.
>>34023675I was going to crop Haman's head on a 688, but then I couldn't stop laughing too much at my stupid joke.
>>34023638I've considered how each would view their relationship, and the personality quirks that could be relevant. But the point of doing the smut, at least from my perspective, would be to flesh out the characters involved in terms of their emotional connections. Physical intimacy is just one area where those connections are on prominent display.Going so far as to introduce specific 'kinks' to that feels like it partially defeats that purpose in my mind, and if the focus is too heavily on that I might as well write some 40k smut or something instead. That's just kind of how I feel about it.
>>34023736I mean, she's always been attracted to strong men, people who are as good or arguably better than her in her chosen specialty. Plus, she got attracted to Dom after he beat the crap out of her, clearly a total M type.
>>34023594I more meant it seemed like she lost some of that eager puppy feeling, which was what I liked the most about her.
>>34023831Its clear to me now that in canon, Judau didn't spank her enough.
>>34023871She's probably still upset right now, and more than a little sexually frustrated. So she's swinging more towards the "evil dictator" side... or as far as she can without crossing some kind of mental line in the sand.Hopefully, with enough exposure to Dominic, she'll stabilize somewhere between canon Haman and CDA Haman.
>>34023373>I wanted to try and give you some direction without the risk of accidentally giving you the solution to finding the GP-02.But it's bullshit in the end, because it's set in stone that the Titans will be born one way or another. So you're just trying to make it long and painful. Or setting up plot filler.
>>34023981Looks like we have to, then.
>>34024064Titans will come eventually. The Phallus simply sped up their implementation. I do think it is a little aggravating we're getting info through psychic teenage angst rather than good old boots on the ground investigative work.
>>34024064All the answers and potential solutions to the GP-02 problem are in play, as well as a lot of foreshadowing on how future events will play out. Every single thing mentioned in the dream sequence is relevant to one of those somehow. It's up to you as players to put it all together in time. I look forward to seeing if you can do it or not.
>>34024260Wait, it's in a grave. Is there a boneyard around for discarded mining equipment? Equipment is left on-site all the time to rust and rot as it is uneconomical to break it down and transport it out.
>>34024413Samefagging.I just had a thought. If the mine is still active, then the ore is being transported out for processing. The 02 could've hitched a ride on a train or truck while we were assaulting and escape in the confusion that followed the mines detonating.
