LAST TIME ON GEASS QUEST: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35895192/Thread times and updates posted here: https://twitter.com/CrosswireRules and Mechanics: http://pastebin.com/J8ehewqfYour name is Xinlu Kuu...or at least that’s what you need to convince someone of. Everything was going rather well up to this point. You’d survived another nasty battle, saved the life of one of your comrades, gotten a chance to join the Advanced Special Envoy Engineering Corp, found out you’d be working aboard the flying aerial battleship “Avalon”, and were in a much better position to exact your revenge in HIM.However as you were unpacking and getting ready to meet your boss, someone walked into your room and spoke to you, someone with a frighteningly familiar face.Suzaku KururugiThe fact you can think and recognize that name clearly without feeling the urge to ‘forget’ deeply worries you, but the way he looks you is even more worrying. Ever since you figured out HE had been lying to you, to everyone, you became very self-conscious of how other people's eyes looked. Slowly you came to realize that whenever someone’s looked you in the eyes it always felt they were hiding something, weather they were your comrades in bootcamp, strangers on the street, or your friends back in Ashford. Most of the time it didn't feel intentional, with your friends it seemed more like a reflex, like a nervous flinch to hide what they were thinking or feeling for fear of making a scene or poisoning a happy situation with an unpleasant truth. Other times it felt intentional, that the person you were talking too, the emotions they displayed, the things they said, were just calculated and produced to hide not merely what they were thinking and feeling, but who they really were. >(1/2)
>>36040835But Suzaku’s gaze is different, because when you look into his eyes you don’t feel he’s hiding anything but rather that he’s telling you exactly what he’s feeling.The look in his eyes is unnerving, a disquieted type of anger that’s both intense and calm at the say time. Suzaku’s anger doesn’t reflect in his body language at all as he stands in the doorway to your room, leaning into the frame with his arms crossed and his body relaxed in a casual manner.For a moment you’re unable to move, unable to speak, and for a brief time unable to think about anything but his gaze. Even behind the comforting tint of your sunglasses, you can still feel the heat from Suzaku’s stare.You’re not sure how long the two of you stand there, but eventually Suzaku speaks and blasts away the silence.“I’ll ask you one more time. Who are you?">Xinlu Kuu nice to meet you sir! (Lie)>I’m Shirley Fenette (Tell the truth)>Write in
>>36040851>Xinlu Kuu nice to meet you sir! (Lie)
(God bless it Twitter, let me log in so I can post this thread link!)
>>36040851>>Xinlu Kuu nice to meet you sir! (Lie)Trust no one
>>36040851>>Xinlu Kuu nice to meet you sir! (Lie)
>>36040851>I’m Xinluu KuuDon't be so nice to the faggot.
Fuck yeah, code shirley time.>>36040944>>36041018>>36041024>>36041066>>36041067Suzaku is kinda retarded, but I seriously doubt that he could forget Shirley, especially considering her "depression" episode in this timeline.Oh well, whatever.>>36040851>Xinlu Kuu nice to meet you sir!
>>36041126>especially considering her "depression" episode in this timeline.She's gone to recover after her mother committed suicide (Which didn't actually happen in the original series, now I look back on it.)Suzaku shouldn't have heard heads or tails of it after that. I think what's on Suzaku's mind is that we're his replacement, due to him being an 11 and honorary Britannian, who's Euphie's knight. Who incidentally is no longer royalty AND failed the entire 11 containment special zone of Nippon.
>>36040851>I’m Shirley Fenette (Tell the truth)Just to go against the flow. Though I really doubt Suzaku will be convinced by our lie. Suzaku might be stupid, but he isn't THAT stupid. So I don't think lying is going to work on him. Hopefully we can convince him to help us keep up the lie.
>>36041169Wait, Euphiemia is no longer royalty in this timeline? Where did we learn that?
>>36041218To create the special area of japan Euphiemia gives up her Royal name.
>>36041234oh, right.forgot about that.
>>36041169Let's hope you're right then.By the way way, Crosswire, am i right to assume that murder princess didn't happpen because of the incident with Shirley?
>>36041324Murder princess was nothing to do with it I believe.
>>36041324>By the way way, Crosswire, am i right to assume that murder princess didn't happpen because of the incident with Shirley?Not strictly because of the incident with Shirley, but rather because Lelouch didn't use his Geass as many times as he did in canon and it didn't go out of control when he met with Euphemia.Also I apologize for not putting up the thread link on Twitter, I think I locked myself out by botching my own password too many times in my sleepy haze. It should unlock in an hour or so. Sorry for the inconvenience.
>>36041367So Suzaku still has Euphy and Lelouch didn't get caught?
>>36041399wich means there is an open position in Charlies knights
>>36041367Ah, I see. Thanks for clarifying.No changes to the plan then.
>>36041018>>36041024>>36041066>>36040944>>36041067>>36041067>>36041126“I’m Xinlu Kuu, nice to meet you!” You give Suzaku a delighted smile and act as calm as you can, snapping a salute when you realize his rank makes him your superior.Suzaku remains silent as you reply, his gaze hardening and a heavy sigh escaping his lips. He pulls himself out of his leaning position and walks over to you, his movements slow and nonthreatening, but his eyes burning with an intense look of disgust. “I thought you’d be better than this Shirley…” he says with a slow shake of his head.“But I’m not-”Suzaku lunges forward before you can finish and with a single quick movement snatches the shades from your face, giving him a clear, full view of your barely disguised face. “But I guess I was wrong. Then again I’ve been wrong about a lot of things haven’t I?” He stands in front of you, one hand gripping your sunglasses and the other laying at his side, as if waiting for you to do something foolish. A surge of panic runs through you as you realize you’ve been cornered, and despite Suzaku being around your height he seems to tower over you now that he's figured out your secret. You think quickly and desperately on how you can salvage this situation…>Admit the truth, but try to convince Suzaku to keep your secret.>Continue lying.>Other (Write in)
>>36041636>>Admit the truth, but try to convince Suzaku to keep your secretThe jig is up, guys.
>>36041636>>things have changed for both of us, judge me if you all you want, this is still smething i have to do
>>36041636>Other (Write in)Start crying"Wh-wha....what do you mean? M-my name is Xinluu Kuu....I've been transferred here today..." Appear confused and disoriented "I don't understand Sir, what's wrong? Who is Shirley? I-I'm not a spy!"
>>36041636>Try not to panic>Panic>Admit the truth, but try to convince Suzaku to keep your secret.
>>36041636this is why we should have worn a mask
>>36041692Seconding, Milk the Geass aspect. I think he should have been told that by V.V
>>36041712>>36041720>>36041730this is so gonna fail and bite us in our firm ass
>>36041636>Admit the truth, but try to convince Suzaku to keep your secret.I told you Suzaku wasn't stupid. At this point all we can do is try to get him to keep our secret.
>>36041746Admitting it is going to bite us too.
>>36041737vv told him after Euphie got shot, i dont think he would risk outing hiself and the existence of geass without suzakus revenge boner
>>36041636>>Other (Write in)Shirley Fenette is a weak and naive child. She does not have the strength to do the only thing she lives for - get revenge on the person she hates the most.Xinlu Kuu, however, does. Does this answer your question, Suzaku?
>>36041765we have nothing to be ashamed of, stand tall and look him in the eyes, he has no right to judge us
>>36041692He can already tell we're lying and he's not happy about it. I don't see how lying even more when he's already onto us is going to do anything but worsen the situation. Just admit the truth, guys.
>>36041839Jesus christ, we're trying to keep our identity secret for a reason. So fucking what if he isn't happy? He isn't going to fucking kill us.
>>36041692This please.Go full C.C after she turned into a child on nim
>>36041802I like this
>>36041692This this and this
>>36041737that might not be true, since murder princess never happened, Suzaku might not have met V.V.>>36041765not really, Suzaku is usually very understanding and will most likely cover for us
>>36041636>>36041802I like this a lot more than the trying to lie to him. He's already seen through the lie, it more than likely isn't going to work. If we can convince him to keep up the lie for us, It'll work a lot better. Suzaku is usually very loyal to his friends.
>>36041908>not really, Suzaku is usually very understanding and will most likely cover for us>>36041941>Suzaku is usually very loyal to his friends.If you noticed from all of his disgusted looks at us, he isn't our friend.
I think with us being as trigger happy as we are, Suzaku is going to be VERY displeased with us either way, but maybe if we're honest he'll at least try to understand, i dunno.
>>36041957His disgusted looks are because we are lying. Suzaku doesn't like liers, but if we give him a good reason why we have to lie, he might cover for us.
>>36041636>Admit the truth, but try to convince Suzaku to keep your secret.Give him the old 'Absolutely dead inside' stare. He knows it well, it should get through.
>>36041988>His disgusted looks are because we are lying. Suzaku doesn't like liers, but if we give him a good reason why we have to lie, he might cover for us.Are you sure it's not because we enjoy killing the eleven black knight scum?
>>36041802Yeah, let's do this.
>>36041963we might need to tone it down and save it for zero...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEJfHaVVRFk
>>36041636Is it possible we can do a final destination vote?>>36042013How in the hell could he possibly know that? I very highly doubt he has access to our personnel file, even if he is a higher rank then us.
>>36041692Nah, he's already got our number.>Admit the truth, but try to convince Suzaku to keep your secret.
>>36041802I'm likin this. Lying isn't going to work anymore, I mean REALLY. Suzaku might not be the smartest guy but I'm pretty sure he can recognize one of his own friends.
>>36042043>Nah, he's already got our number.Still then, why admit the truth?What GOOD will it do to admit we're in the military now?
>>36041802voting for this
>>36042055>>36042072>>36042043Guys. I get that the jig is up. But why tell him the truth?
>>36041636>>36041894changing my vote to>>36041802
>>36042063Because otherwise he's going to go digging.
>>36042117So what if he goes digging? What will digging do for him?
>>36042100cause lying to him will only make things worse at this point
>>36042063>>36042100Because if we admit to Suzaku, we might be able to convince him to cover for us so that we don't get kicked out of the military. The reason we used a fake name is so that they wouldn't find out that we were committed to a mental institution for some time, which would make us ineligible for the military.
>>36042127How will it make things worse? He's obviously fucking pissed at us. And that's not going to change.>>36042137>The reason we used a fake name is so that they wouldn't find out that we were committed to a mental institution for some time,What? Where did you hear that?
>>36042041Right, forgot he is still a test pilot here. Still, I think it is entirely possible that Lloyd shared some footage of the promising new pilot.>>36042100Because he does not know about geass, knows us, hates lying people and we don't want to antagonize him any more than necessary?
>>36042170>Because he does not know about geass, knows us, hates lying people and we don't want to antagonize him any more than necessary?Why? What will antagonizing him do which is so bad? Seriously, there's no reason to tell him the truth, it's not going to help us in any way
>>36042180there is no point in lying at this point, we are better than that
>>36042158I'm having a hard time finding the post, so let's ask Crosswire.>>36041636didn't we get committed to a mental institution and we are using a fake name so that we can still serve in the military?>>36042180He will rat us out and get us kicked out.
>>36042180So that he won't go SHE"S KILLING MUH ELEVENS, LLOYD PLS THROW HER OUT SHES CUHRAZY or something.Also,> Revenge, Strength, Truth
>>36042158>>The reason we used a fake name is so that they wouldn't find out that we were committed to a mental institution for some time,>>What? Where did you hear that?Right fucking there. Thread 2, op post.>>35629302>No one can be allowed to know your true name, after all joining the military under a false identity is illegal enough as it is, if anyone found out you'd been mentally institutionalized prior to joining it could complicate matters even further. Even as Kuu it wasn't easy joining the military, your ‘condition’ almost got you turned away for being medically ineligible for service. It took the pulling of a lot of strings by your late father’s friend, Dr. Pailsen, just to get your new identity setup and have your condition overlooked.
>>36042180And how is lying more when he already knows we're lying going to help, exactly? If we admit the truth, we can at least try to convince him to understand our situation. Lie more and he'll be more pissed at us, and we might just be making an enemy out of him.
>>36041683>>36041695>>36041756>>36041802>>36041993>>36042014>>36042043In your fear and panic it's tempting to go all the way in your lie, to lose yourself in it, to break down in tears, deny your very existence in the small hope that Suzaku will believe you and let you go without any consequences. However you're stopped when you realize something:That's exactly what you would have done as a child. As scattered and spastic as the memories of your childhood now are in your mind, you remember constantly lying as a child, like most children do. It was about little things, accidentally breaking a dish, stealing a piece of cake from the fridge, things that seem foolish to lie about now but seemed terrifying back then.Only instead of lying to your father or your mother you're lying to Suzaku, who despite having some connection with...him, remains in your mind as a good person and one of your friends. You decide to tell him the truth."Suzaku. Shirley Fenette is the naive little school girl who was too weak to stop her own mother from killing herself, she could never take revenge on the person who she's come to hate the most." You look Suzaku in the eyes, dropping your defenses and speaking with just as much anger and disgust as Suzaku was moments ago, your own 'truth' spilling out."But Xinlu Kuu has the strength to get revenge, to make a difference, to become stronger and exact justice on Zero!" You say the name and your head immediately begins to throb in pain, but you bite down on your tongue and focus on what's in front of you, fighting the urge to forget.Suzaku's gaze actually softens and his look of disgust becomes a deep frown of worry."Revenge isn't justice Shirley. It won't bring your father or your mother back. Killing isn't going to solve anything." Suzaku states, now sounding more like the boy you talked to in school.>(1/2)
>>36042204So you don't have an argument at all. It comes down to nothing.There IS no reason we shouldn't continue lying to him. Why should we lie? So we don't have to explain why we're shooting refrain-alikes into ourself to keep our memories, so we don't have to explain why we're in the military, so we don't have to deal with him intruding into our plans.>>36042226>So that he won't go SHE"S KILLING MUH ELEVENS, LLOYD PLS THROW HER OUT SHES CUHRAZY or something.Lloyd's a heartless bastard, we're a devicer, a part, nothing more.>>36042239We're not IN the Military any more. We're in the special research decision which accepts anomalies. Hell, Suzaku, THE anomaly. A numbers isn't allowed to pilot, there would be an outrage if we were brought out because of that.>>36042250Oh well, now we get Suzaku being a bitch at us the entire quest. Great!
>>36042250That's just perfect.
>>36042271did you not read the post? Already he is being sympathetic with us. It's only the first half, calm the fuck down.
>>36042250God fucking damn it
>>36042297>Already he is being sympathetic with usWhich is completely against our goals, and will likely back fire on us because he doesn't want us to become a massive murderer. Oh wait, that's exactly why we're here, isn't it?
>>36042314Not murdering everyone just breaking Lelouch as badly as he broke us.
>>36042314its not like he has the authority to stop us anymore, and even if he tries i can imagine the military brass ignoring him out of spite
>>36042314How is against our goals? Our goals is to are to get strength to get revenge and the truth. If we have Suzaku on our side, it will make it a lot easier.
>>36042344But he can likely out us and screw us over if we go over his line.
>>36042250"Then why are you fighting Suzaku? You're a pilot of the Lancelot, you've killed plenty of people. Why? It's not going to solve anything." Suzaku looks conflicted but shakes his head. "I'm fighting to stop people front dying Shirley, I want to end this fighting so no more innocent people need to die.""And that's what I intend to do. Once Zero's dead the Black Knights will fall to pieces, then no one else will have to die from suffocation or grief." Suzaku remains silent and stares deep into your eyes with you staring back unflinchingly. Neither of you move or say anything, as if looking into one another's eyes is all you need to say at this point.As if losing some kind of silence contest Suzaku is the first one to speak."I don't agree or like what you're doing Shirley. Revenge is only going to tear you apart and ruin your life. I'd turn you in here and now to stop you from making this decisions...but if I did you're probably face criminal charges and most certainly go to prison..." Suzaku's turns his back on you as if knowing you're armed with a knife and fully capable of stabbing his in the back."I'm willing to let this drop and play along on one condition. I want you to start coming to Ashford with me. The others are worried to death about you, Milly practically seems manic nowadays. If they ask where you've been or where you go we can tell them you're still undergoing therapy..."You think long and hard for a moment as silence swallows the room again. Going back to Ashford would be uncomfortable considering...he is still going there. However Suzaku only has the time to go infrequently so it wouldn't be like you'd be going back to school full time, and considering Zero could launch an attack any day it's likely you'll be rather busy with your 'therapy'.What do you wish to do Shirley?>Accept Suzaku's offer>Deny Suzaku's offer>Other (Write in)
>>36042388>>Deny Suzaku's offer
>>36042388>Accept Suzaku's offergod damn it!
>>36042388>Deny Suzaku's offer
>>36042388>Accept Suzaku's offerBecause really, it will only help us to have Suzaku covering for us
>>36042388>Deny Suzaku's offerOH LOOKEXACTLY AS I STATED.
>>36042388>>Deny Suzaku's offerhes bluffing, call him on the bluff
>>36042464Suzaku never bluffs.
>>36042388>Accept Suzaku's offerbecause honestly, just going to see people is not going to kill us.
>>36042458>Because really, it will only help us to have Suzaku covering for usHow exactly? Tell me how trusting Suzaku has helped us at all?He's guilt tripping us into dropping our objectives, and yet you still fucking defend him?>>36042348>"Revenge isn't justice Shirley. It won't bring your father or your mother back. Killing isn't going to solve anything." Suzaku states, now sounding more like the boy you talked to in school.Oh gee, it's like you missed the entire Vengeance part of that.>>36042344Oh look, you're wrong again! Unless he's bluffing, which never happens.I hope you faggots are proud of yourselves.
>>36042388>>Deny Suzaku's offerhe lacks evidence to prove we lied
>>36042493>because honestly, just going to see people is not going to kill us.No, it's just going to send us into a murder frenzy as soon as we see Lelouch, make our lives miserable and send us into a depressive spiral.Oh, and on top of that it also means we're going to be seen in the military, so Lelouch is going to take steps towards getting us out of it. Fucking whoopsie daisy huh?
>>36042388>Deny Suzaku's offerConsidering Suzaku's mental state, and how his superiors view him, I very much doubt he's got any leeway to be making threats. I'm surprised if he even fights in the field any more.
>>36042388>Deny Suzaku's offerYou may be able to push the things you've done out of you're mind and smile, but i can't. Going back there would make it worse for all of them. Shirley is dead and gone Suzaku, whatever is left of her would not give her friends peace of mind.
>>36042388>Deny Suzaku's offerdo not give in to his blackmail, we gotta stand our ground
>>36042388This is a big "I told you so" moment right here.>Deny Suzaku's offer
>>36042388...fucking great. Didn't expect expect this, probably should have. >Deny Suzaku's offerbut agree to meet with Milly outside of school?I dunno, all of the options seem bad and I can't think of anything else.
>>36042388>Accept Suzaku's offerThis is his one condition, we are righteously fffffffffffucked if we deny it.
>>36042564>...fucking great. Didn't expect expect this, probably should have.Yes. I guess those people screaming at you that you're being retarded isn't enough these days huh?>>36042567> we are righteously fffffffffffucked if we deny it.Trusting Suzaku didn't work well once, why would it twice?
>>36042578Yep, it isn't.
>>36042388changing my vote from >>36042458to supporting >>36042564 Because it seems like a good middle ground. We won't have to come in contact with Lelouch, and I'm sure Suzaku will be fine with this.>>36042578How the hell has it not worked well once? He hasn't screwed us over yet. He's just asking us to take it easy, like a good friend should. You really need to just relax.
>>36042578Do you have a better idea when he decides to reveal our true identity in response, probably getting us bogged down in bureaucracy more than going to school every now and then ever would?
>>36042388>Deny Suzaku's offerSeconding >>36042535After Kamine Island, co-operating with Zero, and the failure under Euphie, it shouldn't be too out of the question that he's not going to be taken seriously.>>36042601>>36042564What made you think telling him the truth was a good idea? I'm seriously confused about that.
>>36042612Yes. Ignore him, feign ignorance, make it clear we don't want to talk about it.>when he decides to reveal our true identity in responseConsidering >>36042614>After Kamine Island, co-operating with Zero, and the failure under Euphie, it shouldn't be too out of the question that he's not going to be taken seriously.Suzaku wouldn't be listened to. The special squad is an anomaly in itself, having one person who's a bit out of it isn't out of the question when you already have Suzaku being seen as mentally unfit AS WELL as being a Numbers.>>36042611>He hasn't screwed us over yet.Aside from this entire deal massively screwing us over in multiple ways? Jesus christ
>>36042655look, this deal is going to screw us one way or another, even if we deny it outright without making a counter-deal. So just stop complaining that you didn't get what you wanted and grow up.
>>36042388>Ask for an alternativeGoing near Lelouche at this moment might fuck us up really badly, but so would getting revealed. So an alternative arrangement would be the best scenario.
>>36042614I guess I underestimated the eleven faggot. Does he have a halo yet?
>>36042692>So just stop complainingCalling you buttfuck retarded for picking the stupid option, and then pointing it out when you say I'm wrong isn't complaining. It's calling you a retard and showing you why, with the actual series, you're fucking incompetent. > even if we deny it outrightNot at all, there's very little he can do against us. His position as Euphie's knight means jack all, and despite being our superior, we answer to Lloyd now, not him.
>>36042721>I guess I underestimated the eleven faggot.Did you mean>I guess I underestimated the eleven, faggot.Which would be indicative of you insulting me?Or, >I guess I underestimated the eleven faggot.As in, Suzaku, the Eleven, is a faggot?

As nice as going back to school would be there's a chance HE could learn what you were up too and that would complicate things immensely."Oh? Then I'll have to tell everyone the truth." Suzaku says, turning back around."Please, after Kamine Island, Co-Operating with Zero, and everything else you're practically a joke. I doubt anyone would believe you if you actually knew who Zero really was!" You snap defensively and grin, feeling you've got Suzaku beat."I'm not talking about the military Shirley. Like I said before I don't want to see you go to prison. However I won't lie to my friends and let them beat themselves up over not being able to help you when you're out here wasting your life on some stupid quest for revenge." Suzaku speaks plainly but his words turn your blood ice cold."Y-you wouldn't!""I would. I'll tell all of our friends, Milly, Rivalz, Kallen, Lelouch, I think I'd even go so far as telling Nunnally. You can ruin your life all you wish, but I refuse to let you ruin theirs as well. You can ether start coming back to Ashford with me on our days off or I can tell our friends the truth . What's it going to be?" You grit your teeth and think hard on what to do next.>Accept Suzaku's offer. You can't afford to let Lelouch find out!>Deny Suzaku's offer, accept the consequences. >Other (Write in)
>>36042799>Other (Write in)Laugh"Tell them what you like Suzaku, I'll do things my own way."As in, we'll go to school WITHOUT Suzaku to counter his claims. This way Lelouch won't believe we're in the military, and we can maintain that we're perfectly 100% fine. Yup, no mental problems here.
>>36042799>Other (Write in)FFS, kill him now.Everyone who told the truth, well damn you.
>>36042799>Accept Suzaku's offer. You can't afford to let Lelouch find out!He'd start a fucking manhunt to try and get the giant leak in his plans known as "malfunctioning Geass command" under control. And that's bad. That's really bad. Right now we probably don't even ping on his radar but if he turns his full scope of resources to us before we have a chance to grow strong enough to fight back, we are fucked beyond any measure.Also fucking Nipponese, Jesus.
>>36042847Yeah, well, no point complaining about idiots now is there?>>36042844Seconding this. In fact, lets arrange a date with Milly right after we do this.
>>36042847>>36042799Then we'll be the first pilot in line. Blame the terrorists. It works.
>>36042799Might as well chances are at this rate i'll end up either braindead or unable to remember them anyways. Zero did his work well. What they think will be irrelevant then.
>>36042799>Otherwe wont return to ashford but we will tell Milly the truth ourself. privately. there is no turning back now
>>36042844Seconding that. Should work out, and we won't be bound by Suzaku's time table either.>>36042874>Agreeing to this shitWhy don't you just sign yourself off? It's the worst option.
>>36042844YESTHISPERFECT WAY OUT
>>36042799>Accept Suzaku's offer. You can't afford to let Lelouch find out!Just ask him to not tell them we are in the military.
>>36042799Kill him, blame zero, everything's fine.
>>36042844Seconding.>>36042901>>36042847>>36042861>Implying you can kill Spinzaku
>>36042799>>Accept Suzaku's offer. You can't afford to let Lelouch find out!
>>36042844That is a terrible idea. Suzaku isn't exactly well-known for lying, and Lelouche is naturally extremely paranoid. Even if the rest doesn't believe him, Lelouche very well might try to work his magic on the off-chance that we do, because "magic eyeball command failsafe is go, what could possibly go wrong?"
>>36042844I love it!
>>36042929it only works once per person
>>36042929>Suzaku isn't exactly well-known for lying,Neither is Shirley. > Even if the rest doesn't believe him, Lelouche very well might try to work his magic on the off-chance that we do, because "magic eyeball command failsafe is go, what could possibly go wrong?"See though, if we start coming to school with Suzaku, in the exact same pattern he does with the military, on top of that, being off at the same time we're deployed, Lelouch will have figured it out twenty minutes before I'd have typed this sentence.
>>36042911Might as well try. I'm getting tired of this Suzaku BS, it's taking too long and full of landmines what we can nuke.
>>36042984Yeah, well. Fact is, we just walked into the fucking nuclear land mine of telling him the truth. So take responsibility and don't go for the absurdly retarded option
him this eleven and his white knight bullshit!
>>36042950Yes, but our condition is caused by Lelouche trying to implement a command he could recycle. He might just flip the "forget" switch, for lack of a better term, just to be sure we don't still know. And if he's certain, I'm willing to bet we'll run out of medication before his vocal cords run out of breath.
>>36042844This I guess.Also we must kill Suzaku as soon as we have the chance.
>>36043025good fucking luck doing that!
>>36043025If he has the "live!" command we might as well be trying to kill Marneus CAlgar for all te plot armor he'll have.
>>36043039well get our chance eventually
>>36042799>Accept Suzaku's offer. You can't afford to let Lelouch find out!For the love of God, if we're going to go back anyway, we should at least have the decency to let Suzaku thing we're in this together. Lying sets him off, so the route we're taking is just going to make him as shittershattered as he could possibly fucking get about this. And as Lancelot's test pilot, he's a lot more valuable to Lloyd than we are, as Lloyd judges by deed instead of word.There is nothing about the idea people are currently pushing anyone could remotely consider intelligent if they stopped to think about the consequences, which are far more harmful than not. And that's not worth getting a little "ha!" moment in.
>>36043005Nukes blow up in pairs. If one happens, the other must be used to correct it.
>>36043080Kill him, throw him in the ocean with heavy rocks, done.
>>36042844>>36042858>>36042869>>36042897>>36042921>>36042911You just laugh in Suzaku's face and smile, your hands going to your hips as confidence swells into you a plan exploding into your mind."I'll down things my own way Suzaku. I'll start going to Ashford on my own, that way no one will believe you when you say I'm in the military. It's the truth, but who would believe little old me being a soldier of all things?""That's fine." Suzaku says with a shrug."W-what?""You get the same days off as me Shirley and will get called away to action the same time as me. Eventually everyone will come to realize the truth. Do you really want to put them through learning one of their friends is lying to them?" Suzaku frowns, his guard dropping and his face becoming sincere."Please Shirley, all I want you to do is start coming back to school. You can stay in the military, I'll even cover for you and make sure no one figures out what you're doing. Please Shirley...I don't want to see you or anyone else hurt..."You hesitate and look down at the floor, finding it difficult to look at Suzaku anymore. Does he really just want to protect you? Or is he trying to get in the way of your plans of revenge?>Accept Suzaku's offer and try to work with him. He's a stickler for rules, but killing Zero IS what needs to be done to stop the fighting.>Accept Suzaku's offer...but plan to dispose of him later on. Friend or not you'll throw him away the moment he becomes a hindrance to your plans.>Other (Write in)
>>36042844lets go for it
>>36043078>we should at least have the decency to let Suzaku thing we're in this together.See: >>36042964 Going with Suzaku sets off huge alarm bells. It's stupid to go with him together. Besides, Suzaku can't respect our wishes, so why should we respect his?>There is nothing about the idea people are currently pushing anyone could remotely consider intelligent if they stopped to think about the consequencesThat's what it's been like since the start of the thread, so it's like nothing's changed.
>>36043114>Accept Suzaku's offer and try to work with him. He's a stickler for rules, but killing Zero IS what needs to be done to stop the fighting.There, Jesus, I told you guys it was a fucking terrible idea. Lets work WITH the plot armor instead of trying to fight it. And he'll become our greatest ally the moment he finds out for himself who Zero is, anyway. So lets cement that train of logic instead of trying to work purely on spite here.
>>36043114>>Accept Suzaku's offer...but plan to dispose of him later on. Friend or not you'll throw him away the moment he becomes a hindrance to your plans.
>>36043114>Other (Write in)>I'll start going to Ashford on my own, that way no one will believe you when you say I'm in the military. It's the truth, but who would believe little old me being a soldier of all things?"Err, I meant more along the lines of "We're not going to tell him what we're going to do because that would be stupid"And "Not go to Ashford academy but establish contact with the people in it"Sorry if I wasn't clear.
>>36043114>Accept Suzaku's offer and try to work with him. He's a stickler for rules, but killing Zero IS what needs to be done to stop the fighting.fuck it! you win!
>>36043114I knew that the compromise idea was stupid. We would obviously have the same days off as him.>Accept Suzaku's offer and try to work with him. He's a stickler for rules, but killing Zero IS what needs to be done to stop the fighting.Because planning to off him is stupid with how good he is at Knightmare piloting and hand to hand combat. No way we can kill him.
>>36043155>>36043114That's what I was voting for, so uh, yeah.Whatever I guess.
>>36043114>>Accept Suzaku's offer and try to work with him. He's a stickler for rules, but killing Zero IS what needs to be done to stop the fighting.lets use the plot armor as a shield fokes!
>>36043114>Accept Suzaku's offer and try to work with him. He's a stickler for rules, but killing Zero IS what needs to be done to stop the fighting.While Zero being dead would be ideal, leaving him broken and his cause lost will work as well.
>>36043155>>36043114That's more along the vein of what I thought I was voting for.We don't exactly need to go to Ashford to see our friends after all, we can organize dates outside of it and pretend to ease ourselves back into it. Rather than just jumping right back into school
>>36043191see killing him is easy mode! We must make him HUMBLE!
>>36043114>"You get the same days off as me Shirley and will get called away to action the same time as me. Eventually everyone will come to realize the truth. Do you really want to put them through learning one of their friends is lying to them?" Suzaku frowns, his guard dropping and his face becoming sincere.....But this will happen even IF he's covering for us. How does this make it better?
>>36043114>Accept Suzaku's offer and try to work with him. He's a stickler for rules, but killing Zero IS what needs to be done to stop the fighting
>>36043155>>36043196Retcon for this please
>>36043227>>36043196>>36043155>>36043114ThisI realize it was unclear but the plan Shirley just came up with was pretty retarded without these.
>>36043114>>Accept Suzaku's offer and try to work with him. He's a stickler for rules, but killing Zero IS what needs to be done to stop the fighting.his plot armor will protect us
>>36043114at this point its clear joining team loyd was a terrible decision, we litteraly traded a team of potentially interesting ocs for the king self rightous arrogance bitchzaku
>>36043246Second.Crosswire, it something sounds that retarded than make sure to ask us before you write
>>36043250No. It was stupid since you fucks have no idea how to handle Suzaku.
>>36043221He doesn't bring up the opportunity, meaning Lelouche won't figure out shit until he manages to finger one of us already.He didn't in the canon either, so if we cover for each other, we could probably pass it off as Suzaku dropping us off at therapy on the way to whatever his own cover is.
>>36043273If we pass it off as a drop-off sort of deal, we could probably even make Lelouche think we're just getting a ride out of it. Just get our doc to back us up on this, and our cover is probably better off than Suzaku's.
>>36043273Suzaku didn't have a cover. He directly stated he was working for the military
>>36043114>Other"Really? Do you think telling your friends that you have to take a drug similar to refain, just to stop you from losing your mind? Or about the corpses you see after every battlefield? People don't want to know the truth. People want to know the truth that will make them happy. Pft why do you think people follow Zero?" Let's be honest, Suzaku is both a filthy Eleven, and a hypocrite. We might as well call him out on those points.
>>36043114>Accept Suzaku's offer and try to work with him. He's a stickler for rules, but killing Zero IS what needs to be done to stop the fighting.There is no way he's going to back down, and we can't kill him. Let's just work with him rather than against him and move along already
>>36043246I wouldn't mind this happening, but whatever I guess.
>>36043145>>36043165>>36043165>>36043170>>36043189>>36043191>>36043226>>36043249>>36043342"Alright Suzaku...I'll start coming back to school, but NO ONE can find out that I'm in the military. It's not a matter of my reputation but...it's safer if they don't know." You're uncertain if trusting in Suzaku is the best option, but going against him would just make you another enemy and you already have a very major enemy to deal with."I understand." Suzaku merely nods and gives a relieved smile. "If we need too you can skip some days to avoid making it look like you're always leaving and arriving with me. Do you actually have a doctor? Maybe you can have him tell everyone that I'm picking you up and dropping you off at therapy? I mean every time Milly's called your phone it's been someone else on the line..." "Yeah his name is Doctor Pailsen, I can call him up and-""Wait, Dr. Pailsen? That's weird, that's the new doctor that just transferred aboard yesterday." Suzaku says with a confused look."What?" You don't remember telling Pailsen you'd been transferred to the Special Corp..."Well I doubt it's the same man. Anyway just get things sorted out with him and you can start coming back the next time we get leave. It's good to have you aboard Private First Class Xinlu Kuu! I look forward to seeing how you'll serve here in the Special Corp. I'll leave you be so you can get settled in and we can talk personal matters latter.." Suzaku turns and leaves but pauses at the door."Shir-I mean Kuu. I want you to know that killing someone isn't always a proper revenge. Some people want to die and being kept alive, being denied death or their purpose, is a fate worse then death.>(1/2)
>>36043551You're about to ask Suzaku what he's talking about but he leaves before you can speak. A part of you wonders if you made the right decision as going back to Ashford will definitely complicate things. Maybe you can make it work to your advantage somehow?Letting out a sigh you finish unpacking and think on what do do next.>Go and meet your boss>Visit the infirmary, see if the Doctor Pailsen aboard this ship is the same Dr. Pailsen you know.>Other (Write in)

>>36043673fill us in
>>36043595>>Go and meet your bossLets meet the Earl of Pudding
>>36043846Not long after our cannibalism training session, after which our condition comes to light, we undergo a simple escort mission which turns into an absolute nightmare. After excelling in both and proving ourselves to be on par with both rebels good enough to have a prototype machine under their command but also not!Red Shoulders, we receive a request to be transferred to the SCIENCE-- I mean special testing squadron thingamaboober. And then so does our doc, the world-famous name brand recognition doc who who treats our one-of-a-kind unique Geass-inflicted condition.Take a wild, educated guess as to why the most SCIENCE man in all of Britannia wants his hands on someone with a possibly unique and completely unexplainable mental condition that warrants the attention of one of the most foremost neurologically specialized doctors out there.
>>36043924I got a baaaad feeling about this
>>36043880>>36043670>>36043659>>36043612You'd rather like to see if Dr. Pailsen really is aboard the Avalon, but you're pretty sure your boss is waiting to meet you. Not wishing to make a bad impression you check yourself in your mirror and leave, deciding to visit the infirmary later. Navigating through the halls of the Avalon proves more difficult then you'd expect as the ship is quite large and all the hallways look the same. After getting directions from one of the crewman you make your way to the hanger. You spy some rather interesting Knightmares at the back of the room as well as some odd looking equipment, but force your attention back to finding and meeting your boss. Unable to find anyone who looks remotely related to the noble title of Earl, you approach a rather eccentric looking man with silver hair as he looks over something on a laptop."Excuse me, I'm one of the new test pilots here and I can't seem to find my way around very well. Someone told me Earl Lloyd Asplund was here in this hanger, but I haven't found anyone that matches the description of an Earl, do you know where I can find him?"The silver haired man turns around with the most amused look on his face, as if you'd told him some kind of joke. He closes his laptop and stands up from the crate he was sitting on, proving to be at least a half a head taller then you. "So you're looking for Lloyd Asplund, are you?" The man leans over, getting uncomfortably close to you, his round glasses beaming as he speaks."Y-yes I am. Is that a problem? I was told I needed to report to him and it's my first day on the job so..."The silver haired man chuckles to himself and straightens himself, pushing up his glasses as he stares down at you with bemused and analytic eyes. "No, it's not a problem at all. You're not needlessly defective or defiant, but at the same time you're not like Suzaku. You're interesting, but will you make a good devisor?">(1/2)
>>36044385It's hard not to feel uncomfortable at the man's almost dehumanizing words and you shift awkwardly, taking a step back from the strange man."Well I'm sure I'll find out, once I meet the Earl. I'll go and look for him now, so I guess-" You turn to leave the hanger and put as much distance as you can between yourself the the silver haired man, but he speaks out before you can."Why are you looking for the Earl? You already found him.""Huh? Where?" You look around, not seeing anyone but orange suited mechanics and the man in front of you."Right in front of you Kuu." Lloyd states in a singsong voice, causing you to pause in disbelief and then blush.You immediately snap a salute and straighten yourself. "Private First Class Xinlu Kuu reporting for duty!" "There's no need for that nonsense, I'm a military contractor, not an actual member of the military. Though it's amusing to see just how different you are from my other divisor...""Is that a problem?" You ask, worry welling up in your stomach."Not really. Every mechanism needs specific parts and just because a part works better in one machine doesn't mean it'll work well in another. You should do just fine for what I have in mind. So do you have any questions before I introduce you to the mechanism you'll be apart of?">Do you have any questions for Lloud?
>>36044564nope!also god damn this man is crazy!
>>36044564What are the qualities that make me so ideal for your "mechanism"?
>>36044564>Do you have any questions for Lloud?"I've spent most of my active field time in a barely functioning Glasgow, what should I expect from my new KnightMare?""What am I expected to do when we're not deployed for battle?""How is Suzaku? I hear he's been though some rough things (Kamine island, Euphie's failure, etc)""How often do we get deployed?"I've heard of and seem the Lancelot before, is my KnightMare based off of it?"
>>36044588and we love him for it
>>36044564>"Will this unit stick mostly to tests, can we be called upon to participate in regular military operations, or is it a little from column A, a little from column B?"
>>36044588Crazy and camp, and we love it.
>>36044564"What will I be wearing?"So, we're basically Todo now.
>>36044564Ask him for his phone number.
>>36044564>>Do you have any questions for Lloud? "How do you feel about pudding?"
>People vote on doing something stealthy>OP makes our character tell this plan out loudly to person that would suffer from this plan>Because that's obviously what players voted for
>>36044663>>36044718>>36044743>>36044749These sum it up.We should totally exclaim we love pudding too when he does
>>36044604>>36044663"Well if you don't mind me asking, what makes me so qualified to be your new 'mechanism?" You're still not particularly comfortable with the term, but your boss doesn't say it maliciously almost like it's the proper term for a test pilot to him."Well for starters you managed to defeat a 7th generation rebel Knightmare in a 4th generation scrap heap. So you obviously have some manner of skill that's not dependent on the Knightmare you're using. Then there's the fact you don't seem to care throwing yourself into dangerous situations. I heard the proper report on what happened at the Odake base, you could have easily ran during the simulation and the rebel attack. However you didn't, you stayed and fought despite the danger of the situation and the limitations of your equipment." Lloyd grins at the last part, looking like a giddy school body for a moment before relaxing. "A willingness to fight in spite of technical limitations or failures and the ability to pilot 'peaky' Knightmares is exactly the kind of qualities I want in my new mechanism. You seem to fit those qualities rather well...""Uh, thanks? So how often does the Special Corp get deployed and what are my duties when I'm not deployed for battle?" You decide to switch the topic and get a shrug out of Lloyd."We're an irregular unit. We're usually deployed whenever we're needed or the Brass want someone disposable to throw at a problem that might risk their own troops. Our primary goal is data collection and weapons development, and since the best data is gained from real battles and combat it's important that we see as much combat as possible. Before the fall of the Special Zone the Lancelot was only deployed for major battles and operations, but ever since Zero's gone underground and the fighting as become sporadic we've been sent on rather menial nonsense." Lloyd looked genuinely displeased for a moment, though he appeared more irritated then angry.>(1/2)
>>36045065damn it zero stop killing the war economy!
>>36045150Well, depending on how the timeline plays out he's going to pop back up in a big way soon-ish.
>>36045150I wonder if we could get a sword like sam's
>>36045325the sword launcher? I think it could work
>>36045065"So does that mean I won't get to fight very often?" "Oh heavens no. With all the talk of Zero returning I'm sure we'll be busier than ever. Until then you'll probably be sent on some mop up operations. When you're not piloting it's expected that you assist in maintaining your machine and help the other engineers with their duties. From what your file said you don't have any background in electronics or mechanics, but all you'll be asked to do is regularly maintenance. I'm sure Suzaku or Cecile will be able to show you the ropes.""Will I have to wear a special uniform now that I'm apart of the Special Corp?" You ask, looking around at all the orange uniformed individuals moving about the hanger."Yes. I'm sure Cecile will fit you for one or something..." Lloyd states dully.“So how is Suzaku doing? I heard he’s been through some pretty rough things lately…”Lloyd turns his head and glances at you, intrigue flashing in his eyes. “Suzaku’s been performing like any good divisor should, but you’re the first person who’s ever asked how he’s been outside of Cecile. Tell me, do you have personal feelings for Suzaku?”“W-what? Of course not! I was just wondering if he was OK that’s all!” You blush and Lloyd laughs to himself as you continue to follow him.“Also, Earl Lloyd, can I have your contact information?” You ask, deciding it’s probably a good idea to have some way of calling your boss.“I’ll have you know I’m already married Private Kuu.” Lloyd states. “W-what? No! I just want to be able to contact you when I need too…” You blush again and your boss just continues to grin in amusement. "Just ask Cecile, she handles all my calls anyway." >(2/3)
>>36045382Talk to him about pudding. This is very important.
>>36045382did Loyd and Milly actually get married in this timeline?
Wait, Suzaku mentioned Kallen still being at Ashford, does that mean he doesn't know she's a Black Knight, or he does but he's still trying to be friends with her?
>>36045459depends, when in the main timeline did Suzaku learn that Kallen was a Black Knight?
>>36045482on the island
>>36045482Well it was just after Lelouch put the 'Live' Geass on him, which he mentioned earlier
>>36045382Your memory is faint, but if you're correctly then this man is married to Milly. The way she always teased you and made you feel uncomfortable like this makes her marriage to his man bizarrely fitting.Trying to make your questions to your boss less awkward, you decide to ask him something simple but personal"So uh, what's your favorite food?" "Only the greatest culinary achievement of humanity of course, pudding!" He spins around and throws out as his arms as he announces his love for pudding, actually making you giggle yourself."I actually like quite a lot myself." "Really? Well then that's just another piece of proof that shows you're a proper divisor after all!" You're just about to the end of the hanger when you ask "I've heard about the Lancelot before, is my Knightmare based off of it?"Just the word 'Lancelot' in that question makes Lloyd's eyes light up like Christmas tree's and he grins wider then ever."I was wondering when you were going to ask me about that..." He stops, moves aside and points to a set of scaffolding set up around three Knightmares. The first is obviously the Lancelot, standing tall with regal looking white and gold armor that makes it look even cooler in person.Beside it however is a machine that looks oddly similar. It's head and torso is different, and it's armor isn't remotely as regal. Paint in white and blue the green eyed Knightmare towers above you with a horn on it's head that reminds you a little bit one of those huge beetles you heard about."This is the Z-01b Lancelot Club. I made it using spare parts from the Lancelot and some experimental designs I wanted to try. The Lancelot is too good for some of my more eccentric designs, so I built the Club as a test bed for them and to try and adapt my precious Lancelot into a form more suitable for mass production."You stare up at the machine, looking it over carefully and taking in every aspect of it.>(3/4)
>>36045588Lloyd sees your interest in the machine and asks "So what do you think of it? Feel free to tell me whatever comes to your mind. The Lancelot is my masterpiece, the Club is just an experiment. I'm interested to hear what you think of it at first glance...You look up and say...>(Write in)
>>36045616I like it
>>36045616does it come in black?
some data never hurtshttp://www.mahq.net/mecha/codegeass/lostcolors/z-01b.htm>>36045650Black Knight spy!
>>36045616can i choose my own colors
>>36045616I hope we get swords with it.We like stabby things. We stab real good.
>>36045616"It certainly looks lighter than the machines I'm used to. What are the specs? Does it use the same VARIS rifle the Lancelot uses? Also can you paint it gold?"
>>36045665Ooh, it has a Blaze Luminous?And two MVSs.Yeah, I can dig it.
>>36045760Two blaze luminous (lumini?) actually.We need to get it painted red.
>>36045775>>36045787Kallen's already got red. Besides we're wearing sunglasses all the time, clearly we're a Quattro, which means gold.
>>36045808Rolo has gold.Gold and red isn't taken, I think? We could use that.
>>36045829its more yellow then gold
>>36045616>"The horn seems a bit off for something based on the Lancelot, is it a weapon of sorts or just decoration?"
how about a dark blue
>>36045829Rolo isn't relevant yet. He came after Lulu was mind-wiped, but since he's not been caught this time, he's just some assassin, and if we're only getting the Club, the Vincent probably hasn't been made yet. Also gold is reflective (maybe) which would be great for killing Zero and his laser gun. Maybe Lloyd can SCIENCE! up some reflective shit.
>>36045775>>36045808nah we should pick one of the less mainstream mecha paintjobs like http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/bluedestiny/ms-08txexam.htm or pic related
Guys what about painting it pure white?
>>36045899Silver, maybe? Silver and blue.
>>36045875>>36045903I could deal with this.What about the Weissritter, though?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NgZHPuYNvQ
>>36045903>less main stream. >suggests a Ral inspired colour scheme with red shouldersI mean if you want to suggest something unusual at least go for Purple or Orange>>36045963Silver is acceptable.
>>36045903for some reason i really like the efreet custom colors
>>36046030>>36045903Red shoulders. Like the dicks that tried to kill us.
>>36045635>>36045708>>36045721"It's...pretty cool to be honest! Looks a lot lighter then what I'm normally used to piloting. What are it's specs compared to the Lancelot? Can it use the same equipment? And can I paint it in my own colors?"Lloyd just smiles and basks in the questions about his creation, nodding slowly before speaking. "The Lanceot Club has about 70% of the performance of the original Lancelot. However it's performance is 'peaky' it tends to dip and climb whenever it feels like it, but that's probably because it's incomplete at the moment. Ultimately it's inferior to the Lancelot but it's still a seventh generation Knightmare and it cost significantly less to make. Equipment wise it has four Slash Harkens, two on it's forearms and two on it's hips, it can utilize a VARIS rifle, it has Blaze Luminous shields in it's forearms and it'll be able to use MVS blades as well."You don't really understand a lot of the weapon terms he's using but from the sound of it the machine sounds like a HUGE step up from a Glasgow. However looking at the horn makes you curious."The horn seems kind of out of place for something based on the Lancelot. Is it just there for decoration?" "Ah so you noticed the horn! No that horn isn't just a decoration, it contains a powerful ECM system that should be able to jam enemy communications and interfere with Factsphere usage. It's still highly experimental though and like I said the Club isn't finished. You'll be piloting the Sutherland Club to help test out some of the parts necessary to get the Lancelot Club on it's feet." Lloyd points to the third Knightmare in the hanger a heavily modified Sutherland with a similar paint scheme to the Club."Performance wise it's only on par with a Gloucester, but it's mostly just a straight up test bed so I can finish the Club for proper deployment. Outside of the advanced Factsphere in it's head and the Blaze Luminous shields on it's forearms, it's nothing special.">(1/2)
Black and white?
>>36046118Not gonna lie, that Sutherland is sexy as fuck.
>>36046150god damn right!
>>36045969Silver and blue. I like it.
>>36046118"But you didn't answer my question, can I have it painted in my own colors?" You ask eagerly, intrigued by bother machines."We'll see. The Lancelot Club and Sutherland Club are picky machines, I originally tried to have Suzaku test them out by they proved to dislike him quite a bit. If you're not killed within your first week of active testing then you can paint the Club however you wish. But you'll have to pay for the paint." Lloyd doesn't look particularly thrilled at the thought of the Club painted in a ridiculous color scheme, but he looks to the ever regal Lancelot and just shrugs his shoulders."Yeah!" You cheer, genuinely excited to start testing."Well I have work I need to attend too. Cecile should be able to get you your uniform, the manuals for your machines, and will answer any more questions you have. She's the women with the dark blue hair, she should be easy to find. However if you think of anything particularly interesting feel free to bother me a little." And with that Lloyd turns aloofly and strides away.You're left looking over the Sutherland and Lancelot Club, smiling to yourself.What do you wish to do Shirley?>Find Cecile, introduce yourself and get your essentials.>Visit the infirmary, see if the doctor here is really Dr. Pailsen>Visit Suzaku>Other (write in)
>>36046250>>Find Cecile, introduce yourself and get your essentials.then>Visit the infirmary, see if the doctor here is really Dr. Pailsen
>>36046250>Find Cecile, introduce yourself and get your essentials.
>>36046250>Find Cecile, introduce yourself and get your essentials.Always introduce yourself to the team mom.
>>36046449>>36046413>>36046339>>36046298>>36046293As interested as you are to investigate Pailsen, you decide it’s better to just focus on what you immediately need and head off to find Cecile. It proves to be much easier finding her then it did Lloyd, as there aren’t very many women in the Special Corp it seems.You find her alone in storage, moving around and organizing various boxes when you walk in. Even through her uniform it’s easy to tell she’s a slender, but fit women from the way she lifts some of the larger, heavy looking boxes Unlike Lloyd who had an almost otherworldly oddness to him, Cecile feels so much more grounded and approachable as a person merely from her body language. “You must be new test pilot Lloyd had scouted. I’m Cecile Croomy, it’s a pleasure to meet you Private first class Xinlu Kuu.” Cecile gives you a warm smile and extends a friendly hand to you, however as you look the women over you’re reminded of your mother and cringe.“Is something the matter?” Cecile asks, pulling her hands back at your cringe and frowning.“Huh? Oh no I’m sorry I just remembered something unpleasant, that’s all. It’s a pleasure to meet you ma’am” You give a salute by Cecile merely shakes her head.“You don’t need to salute me or anyone else in the Special Unit. Since we’re an irregular unit we’re much more lax on regulations and military procedures. You'll be expected to show proper respect for authority and salute regular members of the military, but for now you don't need to act so formal." "Oh...The Special Corp isn't anything like I imagined it to be. Maybe that's a good thing." You smile a little, but still feel somewhat uncomfortable towards Cecile with the memory of your Mother's suicide still floating around in your head."Well is there anything I can help you with?" Cecile asks as she starts to go back to organizing the boxes.>(1/2)

>>36046927>Ask her for your uniform, the manuals for the Sutherland Club and Lancelot Club, and anything else you should have.>Ask her some personal questions."How does someone like you end up working for Lloyd?"
>>36046927>Ask her for your uniform, the manuals for the Sutherland Club and Lancelot Club, and anything else you should have.C-can I hug you?
>>36046945>>36046953>>36046954"I was told by Lloyd I should pick up the manuals for the Sutherland and Lancelot Club he also said I could get my uniform and my contact information from you.""That sounds about right. Lloyd might technically be in charge here, but I'm the one who does most of the work to keep everything running smoothly. Not that that's a bad thing, Lloyd's better suited to research then maintenance or leadership." Cecile leaves for a moment, disappearing into the maze of shelves before returning with a large stack of paper back manuals and an orange uniform with a military barrette. "This uniform will probably be loose on you, but if you give me your measurements I can have a uniform and pilot suit tailored for you." Cecile offered you the bundle and you graciously accept it, whispering your bodily measurements to the women.She doesn't comment on your rather nice numbers and merely jots them down for later."So Cecile, how does someone like you end up working for a guy like Lloyd?" You ask. "Well I was fresh out of university and looking for a project to cut my teeth on when I met Lloyd. At the time I heard about his eccentric attitude and behavior, but I also knew he was a genius. When I heard that he was assembling a team to develop a Seventh Generation Knightmare I couldn't think about anything but the work I'd be doing. However as time went on and people left the project, I grew somewhat attached to Lloyd." Cecile explains, sounding a little nostalgic as she speaks."Attached how?" You ask, rather confused on the relationship between Cecile and Lloyd."It's difficult to explain, but I've been with Lloyd for so long that I just don't think it would be right to just up and abandoned him, at this point I've come to consider him family if that makes any sense...""That's a rather touching way to put things." You say, struggling to hold onto all the manuals."Thank you. Is there anything else you need help with?" >Well Shirley?
>>36047587Ask about "Dr. Pailsen."
>>36047587Ask about Suzaku
>>36047612Yeah, is it the same guy who is acting as our guardian and dealer?Also ask about Suzaku.
>>36047712>>36047729"So, how well do you know Suzaku?" "Suzaku? Well he's been a member of the Special Corp for a couple of months now and he's become an invaluable asset in testing the Lancelot. He's an excellent pilot and a rather sweet boy. Why? Are you wondering if he's single?" Cecile raises her eyebrow at you and you once again blush, frowning at the ridiculousness of being asked that twice in one day. "W-why does everyone keep asking me that? I was just wondering what you thought of him." You say, wrapping all the manuals in your uniform so they're easier to carry."Suzaku's someone who's always doing what he believes is right. He doesn't believe you need to bend or break the rules to get things done. I think he's very strong and rather noble, but ever since the Princess became ill he's been rather lonely." "The princess is sick? I didn't hear anything about that..."Cecile shakes her head. "I shouldn't have said that, but yes Princess Euphemia is rather ill. Ever since the failure of the Special Administration Zone she's been having some difficulties with her health. It might not seem like it but Suzaku’s been incredibly upset ever since the Zone failed. I hope having someone like you working closely with him will lift his spirits.”You can’t help but frown a little at that, remembering that you wanted to kill Suzaku just a little while ago. Shaking your head you ask about Pailsen.“Dr. Pailsen? Yes he transferred here yesterday though I don’t know why a such a famous doctor would want a job aboard this ship, maybe he’s just looking for a nice and quiet position here?” Cecile just shrugs and goes back to work?With your manuals and uniform in hand, and confirmation that the Pailsen on board is your Dr. Pailsen you decide on what to do next.>Go to the infirmary>Other (write in)
>>36048072>Go to the infirmary
>>36048072>Go to the infirmaryshit....now I can't hate SuzakuDamn you OP!!!
>>36048072>Go to the infirmaryadding more angst doesnt make suzaku anymore likeable, we should at least be willing to screw him over inthe future to improve our own positon
>>36048124We should kill him anyway>Inb4 people will vote for telling Zero truth about what happened and then forgiving him
>>36048204why not. if he can sell out lulu to gain more power in canon then we should have no issue screwing him over considering our goal of revenge and power. and im only sugesting we do it if there is an actual gain to be had from it like a big promotion or gaining the favour of the royals or military big shots
>>36048216 see >>36043046
>>36048216>>36048166As a guy who hasn't gotten far into the story of Code Geass, why should we kill Suzaku, aside from being the densest moralfag in the series?Also, how does code geass have different timelines? Are there differences between the manga and anime or something?
>>36048072>>Go to the infirmaryThoughy maybe we should drop the manuals in our quarters first
>>36048282im not saying we should kill him, im just saying if we can gain more influence or climb the ranks faster by screwing suzaku over we should at least consider it
>>36048282This quest takes place in an alternate universe, if that's what you're asking.
>>36048282Go read "Nightmare of Nunally" once you finish the main show. It's so completely different it's hilarious.
>>36048340it had some really sexy uniforms though
>>36048340Code Geass with Nunally as the protagonist.Everything is derailed forever and they don't even pretend to have anything to do with Code Geass beyond the characters anymore.That said, one or two things you won't get until you finish the main series, so get on that shit.
>>36048340>>36048332Thanks>>36048331Okay... I still have no idea how killing or screwing over Suzaku would help us at all. I think something like that is just petty, I'd rather screw zero's plans. That has more potential to advance our three goals
>>36048466I think the overarching problem is that Suzaku is a fuckwit who has a habit of self-sabotage when he believes he's in the right all the time.
>>36048369You take your uniform and all the manuals you got from Cecile back to your room. After dumping the stuff on your bed you leave your quarters and head to the infirmary which is surprisingly easy to find. Entering inside you realize how surprisingly small the infirmary is, at least compared to the size of the ship it’s on. Though considering how small the crew is perhaps the size of the medical facilities is correct? Looking around you find the infirmary empty and barren of life, save for a single potted plant next to a nearby desk.You turn to leave when you come face to face with a gray haired, disheveled figure standing directly behind you, one you failed to hear approach you.Naturally surprised you jump back and shout, ready to draw your knife until you recognize the old man’s face. “D-Dr. Pailsen! I thought you were a doctor, aren’t they supposed to keep people healthy? Not scare them half way to the grave?!?”You glower at the Doctor who just laughs and waves his hands in mock surrender.“I apologize, I have a habit of sneaking up on people, your father would be able to attest to that if he was still alive. It’s good to see your vocal cords still work properly though.”“It’s good to see you Dr. Pailsen, but what are you doing here? How did you know I joining the Special Corp?” "I got a job aboard this vessel so I could keep an eye on you. Your condition is rather sensitive and knowing it could worsen at any time was troubling. Now I'm at ease as with me so close by I can treat you or run tests to see if you're deteriorating or recuperating without the hassle of finding time off from your duties. As for how I knew, well...I have a few friends in the military who give me updates on your progress.">(1/2)
>>36048466the fact that suzaku has without a doubt gathered a lot of ill will from the brittanian military and probably the populace at large due to his recent screw ups and involvement with euphie. someone high up might want to see him discharged/humiliated/killed at some point, considering how iredemably assholish the empire is portrayed in canon this would not surprise me
>>36048466As I see it, Surely acts mostly on her hatred right now, so if someone tries to screw with her plans it is not unlikely that she'll want them dead. Hell, we crushed some filthy number in his cockpit last thread just for giggles, remember?Maybe once we start hanging out with MIlly things will get better? Or, since Lulu is also in the Academy, much more worse.
>>36048608Shirley is capable of keeping her murderboner in check when not in content, and we need to reveal and break lelouch before we decide to kill him or not.
>>36048505"You've been spying on me?" You ask with a frown."Shirley I'm a doctor and a friend of your father. You have an affliction that could very well make you forget how to breathe one day. I don't think making sure I know where you are and what unit you're joining counts as spying." Dr. Pailsen says with a flustered sigh."Still, why couldn't you just call me and ask?" "Because you getting personal calls from a famous doctor would arouse suspicion. However this isn't the first time I've followed and researched soldiers with unusual afflictions before. I used to do this a lot in my youth, so the people who I get my information from merely think I'm chasing after another entry in the medical text books." You consider that for a moment and guess it makes sense. Dr. Pailsen is famous and well respected, but from what you heard and from what he told you he was a bit of an asshole in his youth. It's better off if everyone thinks he's just studying you instead of actively helping you."I'd like to run some tests since you're here now. Before we begin can you tell me how you've been feeling since you first took your medication?""Huh? It's been almost a week since I took it, why do you want to know how I've felt? Are there lasting side effects?"Pailsen shakes their head. "There shouldn't be, but I need to ask to make sure."You give it some thought and realize you feel...>More emotional, but ultimately healthier.>Restless, but more energized.>You feel fine, no real changes that you can feel.
>>36048650She can, yes. Sometimes. Just pointing out that there is a murderboner thing going and it is entirely in character for her to think of dealing with Suzaku one way or another - but that doesn't mean she will do it.
>>36048731>>More emotional, but ultimately healthier.
>>36048731>More emotional, but ultimately healthier.The whole screaming and raging thing.
>>36048731>More emotional, but ultimately healthier.
>>36048331>More emotional, but ultimately healthier.
>>36048731Haha, so murderboner is really a side effect from the drugs? >More emotional, but ultimately healthier.>Think for a while.I... I think I killed some people. More than a dozen actually. But I don't feel any guilt over it. I'm not really sure this is normal
You know, now that I think about it, Dr. Pailsen being here makes it a lot easier for us to sell the 'Suzaku is driving me to my therapy sessions' thing.
>>36048919again lets keep the plot shield around!
>>36048919And we Can avoid Lelouch under the don't want him to see us like this ploy.
>>36048942that might be a lot harder to sell, unless he did go with the whole us pretending to forget him as a way of dealing with the break up thing.
Of course, now that I think about, I wonder where Mao is, because he could be bad news for us.
>>36048919Does Suzaku even have a vehicle and a driving license?
>>36048964We seriously need to avoid him as much as possible though. We're the protagonist in a code geass so murphy's law is going to be against us at every turn. Odds are he sees us for more than a few minutes he'll know.
>>36048986I think mao is dead mang.
>>36048987doesn't really matter if he does. Our doctor happens to be on the ship he is often on, and it is more convenient that we go to him on the ship then it is for him to come see us. We can describe it as Suzaku being our escort to help us get by security.>>36049019Is he though? Because he only truly died in the 2 season, and we don't know if that has come to pass.
>>36049044no he is killed by cc in the first season when took nunnaly hostage
>>36049065Oh, it was the first season. For some reason I thought it was the second season.
>>36048986Mao is corpsetastic
>>36048761>>36048768>>36048786>>36048809>>36048820"I feel perfectly fine Dr. Pailsen, if anything I feel physically better then I have in quite a while. However lately I've been feeling very...emotional. When I'm in battle I just get so overwhelmed with feelings sometimes all I can do is think about how much I want to kill the enemy! And when it's over...I don't feel guilty about killing them."Dr. Pailsen taps his chin and nods his head. "I doubt that's a side effect of the drug...unless some of your memories are being restored. Your emotional state could become erratic as you remember and experience your old memories as if they were new ones. However I don't like guessing these sort of things, let's get to some tests to see for sure.""Alright, I swear you worry about me more then my own grandfather did." You say as you take a seat and get your arm ready for some blood taking. “It’d be so much easier to not worry about you if you’d tell me about who you were convinced killed your father. He was killed in the Narita landslide, so you must be after one of the Black Knights, or maybe someone else was responsible... "“Like I said before Dr. Pailsen, I don’t wish to talk about it. I don’t want anyone involved with this, you've already risked enough helping me so far…”“Of course, of course. Your father would be proud at how protective you are of others, even as you hunt his killer."Pailsen takes some blood, asks you a load of questions, has you do some memory exercise, and runs a myriad of other tests and scans on you. About an hours worth of work he comes back, looking over the results of your test with a rather pleased look on his face.>(1/2)
>>36049146“After some thinking and consideration I think you should take your medication once a week as a preventative measure against anymore attacks.”“Really? I thought you said-”“That was just a precaution. Now that I’m so close by I can take any action if something goes wrong. Besides, despite the painful side effects of the drug it might ultimately help prevent any further memory loss on your part and might just restore some of your memories of your rampant emotions are connected to them like I believe."“R-really?” You ask with a smile.“It’s not a guarantee by any stretch of the word, but it’s better to try and fail than not to try at all. Just keep taking your medication and come see me every week for a check up. Your ‘condition’ is on the books, so if anyone asks why I’m seeing you so much try to play it off like I’m trying to make my way into the medical text books again by naming your ‘illness” The Doctor laughs at that and you can’t help but grin as well."I'm planning on going back to school again, if any of my friends call you could you tell them I'm still in therapy with you and that Suzaku's bringing me here for treatment?""Of course. In fact I know the Ashford Family personally, I could arrange some things with the school so you won't have any issues attending your duties here." "Really? Thank you so much Dr. Pailsen!" You can't help but reach out and hug the hold man, actually causing him a bit of physical discomfort from the way he gasps.After apologizing for grabbing him a bit too roughly you get a restock of your medication and are left to your own devices.It's still fairly late, 10:00 PM, just two hours away till midnight. Is there anything you want to do or would you like read up on your manuals and head to bed?>What do you wish to do Shirley?
>>36049276Call it a day for now.

>>36049350Blue and silver
>>36049276Probably take the medicine now, since it has been a week since we last took it. Best to get it out of the way.
>>36049276Journal, then manuals
>>36049350>>36049366>>36049376>>36049387Going back to your room you write a short diary entry, not much to add today that doesn't involve well, you, but you summarize the days events as best you can without giving out anything personal.Stashing the diary away, you go to read over the manuals but think back on Suzaku. You're tempted to just read over your manuals and head to bed, but you feel you need to talk to Suzaku. Leaving your room you make you find Suzaku's quarters and knock on the door. After a few moments of waiting a sleepy eyed Suzaku comes to the door. "Yes what is- Oh, hey Shirley...""Listen Suzaku I'm not entirely sure how I should feel about you. A part of me sees you as a friend and another part of me sees you as just some hypocritical prick. However...I appreciate that you're concerned about me and I apologize that I've had to mislead everyone. However what I'm doing isn't just for me, but for them as well. As long as Zero is still alive no on is safe, nothing is sacred, until he's dead I can't fall asleep without worrying I'll wake up and find someone else I love is dead." Suzaku frowns but he doesn't speak out against you."But...thank you for not ratting me out. I know you probably don't agree with what I'm doing, but I'm not out to endanger innocent people. I'm only after Zero and the ones who follow him.""Just remember what I said." Suzaku says as you're about to leave. "Sometimes death is exactly what people want. Killing isn't always the best revenge."Thinking on that, you return to your room, skim through the manuals and then shoot up with your medication, becoming paralyzed and wracked with pain before slowly slipping off to sleep...(And this is where I'll end things today!
