>LAST TIME ON GEASS QUEST: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/39010176/ >Thread times and updates posted here: https://twitter.com/Crosswire >Quest is usually run on Saturday starting at 3:30 PM ESTYour name is Shirley Fenette and you’re feeling great.Why wouldn’t you? After all in the past few weeks things have been nothing but sunshine and rainbows for you! At first you were just struggling to deal with the death of your entire family and the fact you’d been filled with immortal cells that are slowly warping your body in slow and terrifying ways, but now you’re being hunted by two evil cabals and have become the most wanted person in the largest empire on the planet.You’ve come to the conclusion that it honestly can’t get any worse than this. It just can’t and once you’ve hit rock bottom the only place to go is up, right? Right? Right. You tell yourself that over and over again in your head as you as continue to fly the Bradford towards Hawaii where you hope to find the Avalon and your friends. It’s been about five and a half hours since you fled from that Britannian military base in Seattle, and the sun is starting to set. While the Bradford has plenty of fuel, you haven’t seen any island big enough to properly land on. You peel your eyes off the radar you’ve been eyeing since you took off and look behind you, seeing Rolo and Gino. Rolo stands hunched behind Gino’s seat, cramped and uncomfortable while Gino sits slumped in his chair with his eyes closed, his breathing unsteady, making it hard to tell if he’s asleep or unconscious. “Is he alright?” You ask and Rolo frowns.“I stopped the bleeding as best I could but he lost a lot of blood and the bullet’s still in his leg. If he doesn’t get medical treatment soon, he’s probably going to get sick, and we can’t exactly afford to be hauling around a dying man with everyone after us.” >(1/2)
>>39281799“I know that.” You say, turning back to the monitors surrounding you. As you stare across the wide open ocean as it’s dyed a crimson red by the slowly setting sun you spot something in the distance.At first it doesn’t completely register for you, your mind trying to rid itself of the twinges of guilt spawned from dragging Gino into all this, but as you look down on your radar screen and see a large blip your heart practically jumps out of your chest.There in the distance, is the Avalon, set against the setting sun like something out of a painting. It flies through the sky slowly, making no sudden moves as you approach. Thanks to flying so low to the water it’s unlikely you were detected by radar and the Bradford’s blue paint job must make you somewhat hard to spot against the see.With your heart beginning to race with anticipation you consider what to do next...>Try to contact your friends aboard the ship via phone.>Try up to the Avalon and try to land.>Stay low and out of proper visual range until dark. >Other (write in)

>>39282289Glad you're running today dude. Good to have a thread.
>>39281817Does the Avalon have any weapons besides the big weapon looking thing on the front, cause i dont remember it ever shoting anything in the show, only acting as a carrier
>>39282317Shirley's not familiar with the armaments of the Avalon, but it does have defensive armaments of some kind. That long thing in the front is the Knightmare Catapult. >>39282302I am too. Lately a lot of bad shit has been happening on top of trying to get a job, so I'm happy to be able to hop into the OP seat and have some fun again.
>>39282393i thought the long thing on the side was the catapult the one onthe front doesnt look practical for that purpose
>>39282485Nope. That long thing in the front is basically a big ass railgun catapult for launching the Lancelot and other Flying Knightmares. That smaller protrusion on the side is a small landing pad for VTOLs and other craft to set down in.
>>39281817>Try to contact your friends aboard the ship via phone.Suzaku or Milly.
>>39282558ty for clearing that up
>>39282664No problem. >>39282289You keep the Bradford low to the water and out of radar range as you fly past the Avalon and circle around, slowing down to stay in it’s rear blind spot or at least where you think the blindspot is. Looking out at the setting sun you briefly contemplate waiting till dark and trying to sneak aboard, but decide against it and pull out your phone.“Are you sure this is a good idea?” Rolo asks from the back.“Essentially the whole world is after me at this point and I can’t fight everyone. I need the help of my friends. They’ll help me...they need to help me..."You begin to dial Suzaku's number, your heart beginning to pick up the pace as your thumb taps against the plastic keys. Once all the numbers are in you raise the phone to your ear and wait, listening to the dull electrical ring tone. After a few rings you hear something on the other end, a yawn, and a familiar voice."Hello?" Suzaku asks groggily over the phone."Suzaku, it's me, Shirley! Listen I-""Excuse me?" Suzaku asks eruptly, his tone going from tired to hostile. "Shirley? You're Shirley? You definitely don't sound like her." You hold back a groan as you remember your voice had changed after your throat was cut. Since you don't sound like your old self Suzaku probably thinks you're one of the people who kidnapped...yourself."My throat got injured and my voice changed because of it Suzaku." You explain but you can tell from a scoff on the other end of the line that he's not buying it."Alright, if you're really Shirley then tell me something only she would know."You pause, trying to think of something that only you would know personally about...>Any ideas Shirley?
>>39282884You pinned me against a freaking wall and made me go back to school. Also, how did you know Shirley was in the military?
>>39282884The stupid sun-glasses plot.
>>39282884I slapped the shit out of you when you had the thought of joining the black knights
>>39282884>>Any ideas Shirley?"Remember Xinluu Kuu and her Sunglasses?""Remember forcing me to go back to school?""Remember getting me out of that prison after the traitor royalty shunted me in there?""Also... Do you recognize this voice at all?"
>>39282884Eh, remind him of carrying us naked back to the Avalon from our party right before the kidnapping. >Wanna join me and Euphemia next time?
>>39282931>>39282989>>39283016>>39283111(Writing post now...)
>>39282884Wait, wait, how about this>Only I would know? Fuck you Suzaku, when I finally manage to finish these martial arts lessons of yours I'm gonna kick you ass so hard you're going to regret ever doubting me.
>>39283194“Well I tried to hide my identity from you using sunglasses, you blackmailed me into going back to school, you broke me out of prison when Cornelia turned traitor, and I’m pretty sure you were the one who carried me back to the Avalon when I got drunk and naked with Euphemia.” “...Shirley, is that really you?”“Yes! God, Suzaku when I finally get those martial arts lessons from you I’m going to kick your ass for doubting me!”“Yeah you’re definitely Shirley alright…” Suzaku says, his tone relaxing back to the friendly one you're used to hearing. "So what the hell happened? We figured out Pailsen had kidnapped you shortly after he left but when we reported it to command they didn't even bat an eye at the whole thing.""It's a long, rather unpleasant story that I can go into detail about later. All that's important is that I escaped, and I'm kind of wanted for treason...""Yeah we heard about that on the news, but no one here buys it." Suzaku's words calm your racing heart and bring a smile to your face. You knew you could count on your friends. "What about Milly and the others? Are they onboard?""Yeah. We dropped off the students in Hawaii so they could get a ride back to the homeland, but the Black Knights attacked before they could leave. I had to rescue them and bring them all aboard so they weren't hurt in the fighting. We'd drop them off somewhere safe, but this whole area is crawling with EU, Chinese, and Black Knights forces." "Is it safe for me to come on board then?" You ask and Suzaku sighs."I don't think it is. Cecile, Lloyd, and everyone else thinks you're innocent...but we got this weird new test pilot shortly after you left. Her name is Kobato Hanato, claims to be an Honorary Britannian assigned here to help test some of the newer machines Lloyd through together from the Knightmares you brought in. Her paperwork checks out...but something about her just seems odd.">(1/2)
>>39283584The timing of the girl's arrival and Suzaku's uneasy feelings about her make you wonder if she's an agent of Pluton or an assassin from the Geass Order You look back to Rolo and ask. "Do you know of any assassins named Kobato Hanato?" He shakes his head. "Names mean very little to assassins. We generally go between different ones every assignment, it's unwise to use our 'real' names. Though I don't doubt the possibility that she could be an assassin in the slightest."Going back to your phone you start speaking again. "Suzaku I brought a pair of friends along, one of them needs medical attention. Is there anyway I could land on the ship without being noticed?""Maybe. There are two hangers we use for taking aircraft, but only one's in use at the moment. You could land in the empty hanger without anyone spotting you if you were quick enough, but it'd be pretty tough." Suzaku's voice grows noticeably uncomfortable"I could probably tell Cecile and Lloyd what's going on. They could clear your landing, but it'd be difficult to hide it from that Hanato girl. She always seems to be hanging around where I am..." You consider your options, noting that you still have plenty of fuel to stay in the Avalon's blind spot till nightfall. >Try to land the Bradford on the Avalon without anyone spotting you (Requires piloting roll)>Tell Suzaku to inform Cecile and Lloyd of what's happening and land with permission, hopefully while avoiding the attention of this Kobato girl...>Wait till dark and try to land while everyone's asleep.>Other (Write in)

>>39283800>Other (Write in)Can you describe the girl?>Try to land the Bradford on the Avalon without anyone spotting you (Requires piloting roll)Another nat 1 incoming
>>39283800Would it be difficult to pass Gino onboard and stay in the blindspot?
>>39283800>>Try to land the Bradford on the Avalon without anyone spotting you (Requires piloting roll)
>>39283800>Tell Suzaku to inform Cecile and Lloyd of what's happening and land with permission, hopefully while avoiding the attention of this Kobato girl...
>>39283898Stay in the blindspot after passing him on I mean.
>>39283898>>39283923No as the Avalon's blind spot is merely visual and you need to keep your distance to remain being spotted. If you want to drop of Gino, you'll need to land, and once you do that taking off again would probably just get you spotted.
>>39283991To avoid being spotted. Ugh, spelling issues already. You've only remained undetected because you're flying low enough to avoid radar and have positioned yourself in the visual blindspot of the Avalon. To land you'll need to fly into the Avalon's visual and radar range, though if you're fast enough it'll only be for a few brief moments.
>>39284116hm... from my extensive research, aka looking at the first result on google, this Kobato girl is from one of CLAMP's other series, where she appears to be a nice girl. Whether she's actually nice here, we'll just have to wait and see.
>>39284164maybe she is a spy for zero?
>>39284164Yeah best not to assume that. My guess is she's a plant by the guy in Britania who wants us dead and that Cecile has been geassed.
>>39284325I bet it's either C.C. or that girl, what's her name, back from our first mission, we killed one of her brothers and captured the second one
>>39284422Suzaku would recognise CC
>>39284450Uh, you're right I guess.Either way, I seriously doubt the girl is an ally, probably just another assassin with a death wish or something like that.
>>39283878>Other (Write in)>Can you describe the girl?"Suzaku, can you describe what the girl looks like to me?" You ask and there's a brief pause on the other end of the line before Suzaku speaks. "She's pretty young, stands about 5,8 with long brown hair and brown eyes. However the color of her eyes doesn't look natural, I think she's wearing contacts. Beyond that though she looks pretty normal, it's just her arrival and behavior that's odd." You give Rolo the description and he shakes his head. "I've never seen any Order agent who looks like that, but then again she could be disguised. You'd be amazed how easily people can change their appearances and voices...or maybe you wouldn't all things considered.">>39283868>>39283906>Try to land the Bradford on the Avalon without anyone spotting you (Requires piloting roll)"Well she doesn't sound too dangerous and if she is I'm sure we can deal with her. I'm going to try to land this thing on the Avalon without anyone noticing, do you think you could make it to the hanger without Kobato noticing?" "I'll try. If I can't shake her I'll lead her to the other side of the ship so you can take your friend to the infirmary. We don't have a doctor on board anymore so it should be empty.""Right, thanks Suzaku" You hang up your phone and tuck it away before grasping the controls of the Bradford and turning it's nose upwards, flying up towards the Avalon...>(Roll 1d100. Only the first three rolls will be accepted. 1 is a critical failure and 100 is a critical success)

>>39284688Nice. Hopefully the DC wasn't something ridiculous like 90
>>39284688>87Writing post now...
>>39284757>87Pulling up the nose you fly the Bradford up towards the Avalon, pushed back into your seat as gravity and the increasing speed of the Knightmare forces you back. Your hands grip the controls tightly and you do your best to stay in control while moving upwards as fast as you possibly can. However as your speed increases you realize that you'll never be able to land in the hanger at this speed, and can't possibly circle around to slow down without risking detection.“I need to move quickly to avoid showing up on their radar for anything longer than a second! But at this speed I won't be able to do anything other then crash unless..." As you think and the Avalon’s immense size becomes more apparent as you race up towards it, you remember that the Bradford is a transformable Knightmare, one with a faster Fortress mode and a slower, but far more maneuverable Knightmare mode. Vaguely remembering the controls that Gino listed off before falling asleep you decide to attempt a mid-air transformation as the only other option seems to be being spotted or crashing. Tilting the nose of the Bradford, you fly between the Avalon's wings and begin the transformation sequence as you approach the side of the hanger.Your fingers move quickly across the controls as the Bradford begins to shift and change, parts moving and sliding all over it's body, fucking up it's aerodynamics in the process and nearly causing you to smash into the side of the Avalon. Keeping the Knightmare stead you turn hard to the left as soon as you pass the mouth of the hanger, throwing out the Bradfords landspinner equipped legs as you touch down, grinding across the landing strip and sliding into the hanger, slowing down just a few feet from the rear wall.Leaning back in your seat you breath a sigh of relief. "It wasn't very quiet, but I'd assume the hangers are soundproofed...>(1/2)
>>39285257You hear a yawn behind you as Gino wakes up, smacking his lips as he fails to stretch his arms in the cramped cockpit."Are we there yet?" He asks and Rolo sighs, audibly shifting uncomfortably behind Gino's seat."Can you open the cockpit now? If I don't stand up straight soon I don't think I'll ever be able to stand straight again..." "Oh, right, sorry..." You crouch the Bradford down and open the cockpit, helping Gino out and placing him on the floor as Rolo hopes out and begins to stretch his back."Can you walk?" You ask Gino who shakes his head. "Not without help. Why, are we going somewhere?" "The infirmary. I'm not sure if everyone aboard this ship is going to be pleased to see me, but a friend of mine is providing a bit of a distraction so we can get this leg of yours treated." You say, helping Gino to his one usable leg."How kind of you. First you save my life and now you're worried about my health. Next step is worry about my diet and after that my feelings. Before you know it we'll be kissing like a proper boyfriend and girlfriend!" Gino teases as you lead him across the hanger, and you can't help but laugh and roll your eyes.You lead Gino out into the hall and Rolo scouts ahead as you move further into the ship. Once you get to the infirmary Rolo treats Gino's wound."So what now?" Rolo asks. "If there is an assassin or spy aboard this ship, they'll ether try to kill you or alert their superiors of your presence here. I'd suggest eliminating them as soon as possible, or capturing them for information...""Are you alright Gino?" You ask as you mull over Rolo's suggestion."I'm fine. But I'd appreciate getting a run down on what the hell's going on." He says in response.>Take a moment to explain Gino what's happening and how you've been set up.>Tell him later, contact Lloyd and Cecile.>You can tell him later, call Suzaku and ask him to lure Kobato somewhere you can ambush and subdue her.>Other (write in)

>>39285502>>Take a moment to explain Gino what's happening and how you've been set up.

So what Geass does Kobata has?Mind reading? Intent sensing? Unstoppable charisma?I vote for just avoiding her

>>39285502>Take a moment to explain Gino what's happening and how you've been set up.Best to keep him from getting confused.
>>39285669ThisWe can explain the details later
>>39285502>Take a moment to explain Gino what's happening and how you've been set up.What could possibly go wrong?
>>39285581>>39285617>>39285719>>39285739>>39285787>(Writing post now...)
>>39285836Deciding not to leave Gino in the dark you take a seat and explain what's going on. You tell him about Pailsen, about the immortal cells, Pluton, and the creepy Geass Order and how you haven't done anything to warrant being charged with treason.You make sure to leave out certain details, like your vendetta against Zero and the death of your family for the time being given time restraints and everything going on.However just as soon as you finish speaking Rolo taps your shoulder."Someone's headed this way." He says."Who?" "A girl, matches the description of what Kobato girl Suzaku mentioned."Shit!" You mutter under your breath as you look around. There are plenty of places to hide, you could easily drop out of sight to try and avoid confronting the girl...or you could hide, wait till she enters the room, and then jump her...>Have everyone hide, avoid confronting Kobato.>Have Gino hide, but try to ambush Kobato and subdue her when she enters the room.>Greet her normally, confronting her directly.>Other (write in)
>>39286406>>Have everyone hide, avoid confronting Kobato.we dont know what she is capable of
>>39286406>Greet her normally, confronting her directly.She probably has geass that would find us all
>>39286406>Have Gino hide, but try to ambush Kobato and subdue her when she enters the room.
>>39286406>Have Gino hide, but try to ambush Kobato and subdue her when she enters the room.Can Rolo do a time stop?
>>39286406>Have everyone hide, avoid confronting Kobato.
>>39286406>Other (write in)Can Rolo knock her out using his Geass or does Nunnally's command prevent even that?I mean, he wouldn't be killing her...
>>39286406Could rolo use his geass and tie her up tightly with bandages or something?
this could be the ex princess
>>39286406>Have Gino hide, but try to ambush Kobato and subdue her when she enters the room.>Rolo can you cuff her while using your geass? it isn't harming her.
>>39286568There is no way Spinzaku's girl is walking around and he's too stupid to notice her.
>>39286568You think it's Euphemia? She was going to alter her appearance. But wouldn't Suzaku still recognize her, if that was the case? Unless he did and just didn't want to say anything over the phone in case someone was listening, I guess.
>>39286591But what if she has a Geass of her own?
>>39286568Oh right. I'm pretty sure this is gonna be euphemia with her new false identity provided by Lloyd
>>39286529Rolo cannot directly attack another individual, lethal intent or not. >>39286539>>39286572Rolo could however use his Geass and use the perception stop to restrain her using a pair of handcuffs he grabbed if you wish him too.
>>39286406Okay, supporting >>39286572 then
>>39286687Definitely geass and restrain then
>>39286793We should also try our hardest to move while he uses the geass just for practice
>>39286613She said that she had a way of doing it so effectively no one would be able to tell.
>>39286812Good plan, but I don't think it relies on practise. It's more 'What percentage of Shirley is biologically CC' that provides the geass resistance.That said, I do want to see how much it has increased since then.
>>39286847Ohh.It's probably Euphemia then.Which means this is going to be a right laugh.
>>39286855Yeah I think he will probably selectively target only kobato anyway
>>39286971I don't think he can selectively target, can he?
>>39286971HIs geass doesn't work that way, instead it affects everyone within a certain area iirc
>>39287015>>39287013Yes, The area can be as large as he wants, centered on himself, after it is cast, someone can walk inside without it triggering. You see this when he stops Orange temporarily and tells Sayoko to get him while he's frozen. Although Orange cancelled that Geass before they could do anything so I dunno if it works like that.His heart stoppage is proportional to area.
>>39287015It's area based, radiating out from him, but he can control how large the area is, I believe. Bigger areas put more strain on his heart.He didn't seem to give a fuck when he did it to Lelouch at the OSI base, but when he did it to the entire school, he was breathing hard, and when he did it to save Lelouch he was actively killing himself.
>>39286793“Rolo, can you use your power to cuff her?” You ask as you grab Gino and hide him under a nearby gurney, draping sheets over the side to hide him from sight.“Sure.” He nods and fishes a pair of steel handcuffs out of the backpack on his back. The two of you wait on both sides of the door, listening to the quiet footsteps as Kobato Hanato proceeds to the infirmary and slowly pushes open the door. “Hello? Is anyone here?” She asks as you spy a mop of brown hair poke itself into the room. The girl’s voice is calm and sweet, but you don’t trust it, not even for a second.As soon as the girl steps completely through the doors and begins to look around, Rolo activates his power and you freeze up, able to watch and see what’s happening, but ultimately frozen and helpless.Rolo moves quickly, handcuffing the girl’s arms behind her back and managing to cuff her legs together for good measure. When his power stops he’s left somewhat breathless and the girl turns to face him upon hearing his breathing, immediately losing balance due to her cuffed limbs and falling to the floor.“Ahhh!” She shouts suddenly, managing to land on her side instead of falling completely flat on her face. You rush over and grab Kobato, hoisting her off the ground and flopping her onto a nearby medical bed where you strap her down and draw out your gun.“Alright Kobato, you’re going to tell me who you’re working for and what you’re doing here or I’m going to make you tell me…” Pointing your gun at the girl, Kobato struggles against her restraints in a panic“N-No! Shirley you don’t understand it’s me!”“Who? Stop playing games, I’ve never seen you before in my life!” You grit your teeth and Rolo walks over, offering you a knife.>(1/2)
>>39287326Oh goddammit. >>39286878you were right
>>39287326She had plastic surgery?That's some dedication right there.
>>39287326“I’m Euphemia! If you don’t believe me check my face, under my chin…” Kobato looks at you with fear in your eyes and you stare back with suspicion, holstering your gun you reach out and put your hand underneath her chin.After first feel nothing by bare skin, but then you feel a small nub and grab it between your thumb and index finger. Pulling on it, the girl's skin begins to slowly peel away as you pull, until her entire face has been removed. Instead of revealing muscle or bone however, the skin reveals more skin underneath and once the flesh like mask is removed you stare into the all too familiar face of Euphemia. Your eyes go wide and you nearly drop the flesh like mask on the floor in surprise"E-Euphemia! It's you! I'm sorry I had no idea..." "It's fine, just don't drop the mask! It's fragile and I only have another spare..." It's weird hearing another voice coming out of Euphemia's mouth, but still not as weird as hearing another voice coming out of your own mouth.After unbuckling and uncuffing Euphemia you hand back her mask and she quickly reapplies it, looking once again like a completely different person."I'm sorry about the cuffing and almost stabbing you Euphemia, I forgot you said you were going to disguise yourself...""It's alright, you obviously had more important things to worry about. I'm just happy to see that you're OK!" Euphemia exclaims, hugging you as Gino crawls out from under the nearby bed to watch."You look...different." Euphemia comments, seeing your eyes and the roots of your hair."I could say the same for you." You comment, looking her over.>"What's happened while I've been gone?">"How'd you disguise yourself so well?" >"Let me introduce you to my new friends, Rolo and Gino...">Other (Write in"

>>39287810“Here let me introduce my friends, this is Gino Weinberg, and this is Rolo. Gino helped me get here and Rolo...well he's been with me since I got away from that bastard Pailsen." You gestured between Gino and Rolo with the Gino waving from his spot on the floor and Rolo just frowning."Well it's wonderful to meet you two, though I wish it were on better circumstances...""So Euphie, what's happened since I've been gone?" "Well the Black Knights have taken over most of the Hawaiian islands and damaged a majority of our fleet in this area. Chinese subs and a few EU ships are providing support to Zero and his troops who are setting up shop on the islands, probably to launch an attack on the homeland. It's only a matter of time before a counterattack is launched, but Zero's probably expecting that..."You try your best not grit your teeth at the mention of Zero, but fail. "What about me? Did you hear how I've been charged with treason by the king?" Euphie nods. "I did. I assume the people who are after you are friends with my father. That or my father's directly after you...""Ether way, I'm in a shitload of trouble aren't I?""A tremendous understatement, but yes you are.

>>39288237I think he would get upset because he doesn't want her to be in any danger

>>39288539“Why are you hiding this from Suzaku?” You ask and Euphemia just looks at the floor, her expression growing sad.“He’s too overprotective of me, he’d never give me a chance to fight if he knew who I really was. Besides, Euphemia has a bad reputation after the failure of the Special Administrative Zone of Japan. At least as Kobato I can get a fresh start and actually have a chance to earn some respect…” “You should really tell Suzaku one of these days though, you shouldn’t keep secrets from him. Especially when all this is going on…”“I know that, I’ll tell him as soon as I feel the time is right.” Euphemia looks up from the floor and into your eyes, her eyes filled with solicitous worry. “So you won’t tell Suzaku? You’ll keep this all a secret?”“Of course Euphi, er I mean Kobato! Your secret is safe with me. I should be able to keep your name straight now that I don’t have to lie about my own now.” You laugh a little at the comment but honestly hope you don’t mix things up."So what are you going to do now?" Euphemia, or rather Kobato asks."Well we should get Gino a wheel chair since he can't exactly walk and then...">Contact Lloyd and Cecile, tell them what's happened and that you're on board.>Suzaku, to explain the situation with Kobato not being a threat.>Other (Write in)
>>39288791>>Contact Lloyd and Cecile, tell them what's happened and that you're on board.
>>39288791>Contact Lloyd and Cecile, tell them what's happened and that you're on board.
>>39288791>>Suzaku, to explain the situation with Kobato not being a threat.Cecille may be compromised, need to talk to her in person. Remember the last time we talked we got Rolo and friends after us.
>>39288791>Suzaku, to explain the situation with Kobato not being a threat.
>>39288805>>39288824>>39288832>>39288859Really guys? We know Cecille is compromised we should talk to her in person, not over phone or comms.
>>39289050C-cecile is fine! Pseudo mom is fine!
>>39288791>Contact Lloyd and Cecile, tell them what's happened and that you're on board.Maybe mention about Cecile acting strangely when we called her from China?
>>39288805>>39288824>>39288832>>39288859>>39289076>(Writing post now...)
>>39289050I think it's more likely that someone was listening in on the phone call
>>39289195Heh, maybe, but considering how everything was turnining out in our favor today, I wouldn't be the least surprised if the thread ends on a bright note of Shirley being shot in the head by a Geass affected Cecile.
>>39289376Or she kills everyone else and then shoots and brings us back to stadfeld for indoctrination. which is more likely since we are hard to kill. (suzaku might survive cause "live" but the rest are fucked)
>>39289376>>39289440ANONS, YOU'RE REALLY PUSHING THE PESSIMISM HERE. SCREAM UNTIL YOUR LUNGS DROWN IN YOUR OWN BLOOD, IT WILL NOT STOP ME FROM DRAGGING YOU INTO THE LIGHT OF OPTIMISM THAT IS ALL.
Rolled 46552 (1d100000)>>39289476Rolling for optimism
>>39289440But if that happens how will we make Gino our husband?I really hope we can make a contract with him eventually somehow
>>39289519We won't he'd be dead. Honestly he's the most vulnerable person here right now.Also I doubt we'll ever contract someone cause Geass in our mind is pretty evil. (zero, stadfelt, Nemo(admittedly least evil in our kind but still))
>>39289598Eh it's only really evil depending on how it's used and who it's being used by
>>39289730Still even nice girl like Nemo started using it to deny people's will and decide for them. Geass breeds tyranny and evil.
>>39289730Right, but Shirley is not really capable of making distinctions like that right now. It's too much of a potential threat, no matter who's wielding it.
>>39289755bismarcks geass didnt seem so Tyranny/evil breeding since he was happy with following charlies plan
>>39289797I'm still hoping for a totally unique form of geass. I'm sure it won't happen for a long time assuming that it's even remotely possible for shirley to form a contract
>>39289851Meta knowledge anon.Here's what Shirley knowsZero: Evil assholeStadfeld: evil assholeNemo: fledgling tyrant trying to force peace down other peoples throtsRolo: Cold assassin only not killing all of us because he got mindraped not tooGeass isn't looking good in her eyes.
>>39289937There's nothing really evil about rolos geass though.
>>39289127“I should give Lloyd and Cecile a call.” You say, taking out your phone.“Why not see them in person?” Euphemia asks as she walks away and grabs a wheelchair from the nearby corner, unfolding it and rolling it over to Gino.“Well...I think it’ll be safer just to call them.” You dial Lloyd’s number as Rolo continues to watch the hall, with Gino and Euphemia chatting behind you. After a few rings you hear Cecile’s sweet voice come over the phone.“Hello? Who is this?”“Cecile, it’s me, Shirley.”“Shirley? You sound...different.” “It’s a long story, but I swear it’s me. Just ask Suzaku.”“There’s no need, I believe you. Your voice may sound different but you still talk like Shirley does.”“Cecile…”“Yes?”“Do you remember what you told me when I called you from China?”“Called me from China? Shirley, I never got a call from you till now. What are you talking about?” Cecile’s voice grows concerned and you grow confused.“Nevermind, I must be mis-remembering things. Anyway, I’ve snuck aboard the Avalon with some friends of mine. I've been falsely accused of treason and there are some pretty shady people after me. Could you and Lloyd come to the infirmary? I have some things I need to tell you two.""Of course. I don't think Lloyd will mind having you back, I'm sure he'll be willing to help after I talk with him.""Good. Thank you Cecile."A few minutes later, Cecile, Lloyd, and Suzaku come to the infirmary. Suzaku's initially suspicious of "Kobato" but you explain the misunderstanding and Kobato apologies. Once everyone has a seat you explained how you were kidnapped, how Pailsen betrayed you, was using you for a guine pig, how he was working for Pluton, and how you're being hunted by the Geass Order who probably convinced or simply asked the king to mark you down for treason.>(1/2)
>>39289937Shirley seems a lot more concerned about getting revenge on people who have wronged her than the concepts of good vs evil
>>39289990Hugs incoming in 3... 2... 1...
>>39289990this is the second post you say King instead of Emperor
>>39290049Good and Evil kinda went the window once Shirley went all JUSTICE and realized that she likes killing people.Bad people of course.
>>39290049Still she values people having the ability to choose, which 3 of the geass users deny to other people.
>>39290122Make everyone else bad, and the rest of the world owes them and you have the average /tg/ paladin.
>>39290180I think the idea of using their own power against them would appeal to Shirleys sense of JUSTICE
>>39290302But why? Just shoot them so much easier, or blind them/cut their vocal chords.
>>39290085(My apologies, it's an accidental slip up)>>39289990Lloyd, Cecile, and Suzaku all question the validity of these claims, but Rolo shows off his Geass and you make it clear that your body is changing and can regenerate by inflicting a few small wounds on yourself.Cecile and Suzaku are left, disgusted and speechless by the revelation to the point both of them walk over to comfort you, all while Lloyd stays seated and just looks intrigued by the information."I'm no biologist, but you and this 'Geass' power are truly fascinating. If helping you prove your innocence means I can get more data from the Lancelots and learn more about this power, then I'm willing to lend my assistance. I'd prefer that you not do anything too rash, I'd rather not like to end up a fugitive myself since it's hard to do proper research when you're on the run from the law...""If anyone asks you can say I threatened your lives, or took Milly hostage or something." You reply."So how exactly do you go about proving your innocence?" Rolo asks coldly. "The Emperor of Britannia himself has marked you for treason, only he can retract the accusation and declare you innocent.""Well...you could always change his mind." Kobato points out. "I mean, Pailsen and this Pluton group, they're obviously scheming to do something. If you could get rid of them then maybe you could appease the Emperor by exterminating possible usurpers?""Or maybe you just get your hands on Zero." Gino adds. "I mean the dude is more wanted then you. If you bagged him and brought him before the Emperor, you could literally ask for anything you wanted.""Going after this Geass Order might solve things too." Suzaku states, visibly relied by the reveal of so much corruption in Britannia. "If they're behind the request to have you accused of Treason, then dealing with them first might be the fastest way to proving your innocence.">(2/3)
>>39290336"Ether way, we're here to help you Shirley, whatever you decide to do we'll do our best to support you." Cecile says, her eyes wet with tears. You stand there, looking to everyone around you with a strange feeling in your chest. For the first time since the death of your parents and the start of your journey for truth, vengeance, and strength, you feel like you can actually accomplish your goal.Smiling wide you open your mouth to speak, to name who you will go after to prove your innocence and begin claiming the vengeance you so ultimately deserve.>You will go after Pluton, Mr. Stadtfeld, and that bastard Pailsen!>You will go after Zero, the man who killed your parents and ruined your mind.>You will go after the mysterious Geass Order...
>>39290426>You will go after Pluton, Mr. Stadtfeld, and that bastard Pailsen!We know nothing of Zero's movements and we'd be in the Black Knight AO.We know little of the Geass order and they likely have immortals working for/leading them.Rolo knows of Pluton thoroughly and we can avoid the heavy fighting until we want to engage.
>>39290426im torn between Pluton and Zero
>>39290426>You will go after Pluton, Mr. Stadtfeld, and that bastard Pailsen!Lets tackle these guys first.
>>39290426>You will go after Zero, the man who killed your parents and ruined your mind.>capture Zero and unmask him and bring him before the emperor>mfw we're basically taking Suzaku's role from the canon, but better>we end up as a Knight of Rounds with GinoImagine...
>>39290426>You will go after the mysterious Geass Order...I honestly consider this to be the root of our immediate problem. We remove them, then Pluton, then Zero and everything is fine for us
>>39290426>You will go after Pluton, Mr. Stadtfeld, and that bastard Pailsen!PAILSEN WE COMING FOR YOU NIGGA!
>>39290426>>You will go after Pluton, Mr. Stadtfeld, and that bastard Pailsen!
>>39290426>You will go after Pluton, Mr. Stadtfeld, and that bastard Pailsen!
>>39290426>You will go after Pluton, Mr. Stadtfeld, and that bastard Pailsen!They're the ones who most need killing right now. Zero will die in due time. Right now we need to keep these assholes from putting more obstacles in our way.
>>39290426>You will go after Pluton, Mr. Stadtfeld, and that bastard Pailsen!Obviously.
>>39290507The problem is that we don't know exactly how deep that rabbit hole goes. Pluton's the more achievable goal at this point, and getting them off our back could at least stop them from making an army of immortal super soldiers.Plus, we get mad bragging rights next time we see Kallen.
>>39290426>>39290486>>You will go after Zero, the man who killed your parents and ruined your mind.leaning more towards zero, cant hunt pluton while the homeland is being invaded
>>39290571we go all kefka on her now?
>>39290426>You will go after Zero, the man who killed your parents and ruined your mind.EYE ON THE PRIZE, SHIRLEY, EYE ON THE PRIZE!
>>39290604save the best for last you fool!
>>39290594Well, Kallen doesn't care about her father that much, they're rather estranged. Still, being the person who crippled Zero's greatest servant, destroyed her home and killed her father has a delicious appropriateness to it, doesn't it?
>>39290665also she killed our father!
>>39290682Yes, that too, but Shirley's mostly focused on Zero. It's ultimately his fault her father is dead. So hurting Kallen is a means to her revenge, not an end.
>>39290475>>39290500>>39290538>>39290551>>39290564>>39290570>>39290586>>39290554>>39290656"I'm going after Pluton." You say, eagerness and excitement filling your voice as the idea of finally striking back feels like it's becoming a genuine reality. "Dr. Pailsen and Mr. Stadtfeld are no doubt conspiring against all of Britannia. If they have access to immortal cells, who knows what they're going to make? I'm going to stop them, clear my name...and let them taste true justice!""We'll have to figure out where to start though..." Suzaku says when Rolo speaks up."I know where we can start..."(Annnnnnnd this is where we'll be ending things tonight!)
>>39290731Thanks for running dude. Same time next week?
>>39290731Thanks for running. We do good this thread? Were you surprised the path we chose?
>>39290731we have our team now we can begin the climb up from rock bottom
>>39290731Thanks for running, Crosswire. See you next time.
Archived!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/39281799/>>39290760Probably, unless I get a job interview or something. I shouldn't have anything to do next Saturday, but I'll let you all know if anything comes up.>>39290776You did excellent this thread, I'm relieved too. Things were bad for Shirley for quite some time, now you guys will have a chance to get in some nice cathartic murderous revenge. Thank you all for playing! See you next Quest.
>>39290825Did Lloyd ever make a new frame for us or fix our old one? Upgrades?
>>39290859Oh yeah, I'm still hoping for a Florence...
>>39290825meaning she is going to kill EVERYONE next battle due to the fact she is so pent up
>>39290859You'll just have to find out neeeeext thread.But yes, Lloyd has some goodies ready.
>>39290825>nice cathartic murderous revenge.Hell yeah, finally.
>>39290911Awesome. Pudding always pull through.>>39290871Hoping for Lloyd's genius to give us our own unique frame with a unique name.
>>39290945Eh, I'm absolutely fine with an original frame as long as it has some sort of stabbity stab cutting things attached to it.
>>39290945I bet we end up with that exoskeleton one he mentioned a while ago
>>39291097I don't remember that. What was it? Please tell me it would result in a Knightmare Frame that doesn't have an ungainly cockpit block sticking out of the back. I very much want that. Because while there are some KFs the escape pod hump looks good on, the majority of them wind up looking stupid.
>>39291157It's mentioned in thread 17 I think.
>>39290825Thanks for running dude.
>>39291072Your lack of imagination is disturbing.>>39291097that'd be great for small scale missions but would it have enough firepower to drop a knightmare?
>>39291349I have absolutely no idea but I'd like to find out
>>39291387Yeah thing is one hit and we're 100% CC. A human even in an exo suit getting hit by knightmare weapon equals gibs or disintegration.
>>39291349I just have a passion for these things anon. Even though i know how stupid that is, it's still like burning with the heat of a thousand suns or something.
>>39289937I dunno, she seems to be developing somewhat of a rapport with Rolo.
>>39291615Yeah mostly because he can't hurt us and we're stockholming him.>>39291498Yeah thing is we don't want to go toe to toe if we'd get rekt, not even Shirley is that crazy.
>>39291464>100% CC100% positive result! Geass immunity, and a mask requirement. Actually, a mask might be required already, given the whole fugitive thing.
>>39291757Yeah and we'd be a puppet on strings then as we'd stop being Shirley completely.
>>39291731Berserker Shirley is pretty crazy though, I mean just look at our battle with Zero or one of the earlier encounters we had.
>>39291794Well yeah, but she knew enough to know Kallen would wreck her if she attacked straight up. It's a cunning madness.
>>39291757we dont want to be a cc clone, if we cant reverse the effect we can settle with cc/shirley fusion
>>39291817Did she really know? I thought we VARISed the shit out of her simply because it was the most efficient way to deal with her and not because Shirley had an actual grasp of Kallens fighting abilities. Anyway, in case of Florence the slashy things are foldable it seems, so it's not really that different from having a couple of MVS swords mounted on some hardpoints. Well, maybe there's that ease of access, but overall it's more about aesthetics I guess? Yeah, that's it. As long as it's fucking edgy mech i'm fine with it.
>>39292089We knew Suzaku was better than us at that point, he said Kallen was better than him, transitive property.As for design? Why not let Lloyd work his magic?
>>39292135...You're right anon. Still don't remember it very clearly, but something like that definetly came up in one of the earlier threads.And for design, we'll see what our options are next thread I guess. Gonna be good either way since its fucking Earl Pudding himself who's designing our stuff.
