Th-that's a little harsh...:heh:

<looks at a sobbing Sharazad>

:heh::heh::heh:

Well, subtlety isn't TK's type, after all. :uhoh:

GASP!:upset:
You're going to have a problem...:uhoh:

Namely...

<drum rolls>

Magic damage...:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Heh, don't worry, there won't be so much as "magic damage" when Hayate attacks. What she can do is just refrain from using those nukes on Sharazad. That said, bombardments can still be handled somewhat, though only by the Trystahn.

It just comes with the circumstances...:heh:

:nod:

Circumstances that are difficult to deal with. :(

Me: You're being a softie again, Hayate?!:mad:
Hayate: Uuu~...:upset:

Anyway, it does somewhat compute she can be considered the 'Princess' of the Yaten no Sho as well.:p

That aside, Magic Damage...:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

It's the Nanoha-plot device syndrome that'll be your problem here...:uhoh:

And of course, *Hayate fans shoots PF with Ragnarok Breaker*
:D:D:D

W-What is this? :twitch:

*entire horizon was filled with silver beams of pure energy*

And yes, for that particular reason you mention above. :heh:

======

Creative juice running out fast! :uhoh:

That said, Aaron, I'm going to send you Chapter Five on Aurion.

NAVSPECWAR = Naval Special Warware Command
DDG = Destroyers, usually of the guided missile variety IIRC.
FFG = Frigates, as above, I think of the guided missile kind.

I think the worst part is that I knew those off the top of my head.
Ahh I see
:heh: hey it's not that bad :D I've got lots of random info stored away in my brain as well :D

Well, it depends on how old TKs O'Neill is... mind you, Graham retired when he was in his 70s. Assuming TK's O'Neill is in his 40s, thats 3 decades to work with...

Well.... we play lotsa RTSes... and read about this stuff.... and you can't read Halo or play Halo without seeing these initials.....
Wait.... Graham retired when he was in his 70's? When was that mentioned..:twitch:

:D
:heh: What would you replace it with then? :heh:
Errmm, let me get back to you on that :p


We wanted to study one of the Wolkenritter, but let's just say the results are as expected.

You tell him boss! Cut him down to size!!!

:heh: I think that after the Tais stuff, that Hayate would have banned the knights from going anywhere near the science dept :p

:D :D

Edit
Progress update:
Strikers v Aces, Part 7 of A visit to RF6
Complete at 5.2k words :D
Pending approval.

Keroko, could you read the pm's that I just sent you :D (sorry about the massive wave... it didn't fit in just one :heh:) and get back to me on any changes you feel are necessary. Ta.

I am adamant that water isn't weak! :mad:

Well, that depends. :p I'll try to think of a way to make it possible to use water. Something must be doable here ...

If its only pure water element, then you're out of luck. The only think I can think of is surrounding a person's head in water to drown them, using pure water to defend against lightning attacks and one rather evil attack.

If its liquid manipulation control, then I can think of a few other tricks.

:eek:

That's basically my concept and portrayal of my AI's new physical bodies as well :heh: And unlike Yui's current form, they're full-sized :heh:

And studying the Wolkenritter huh? If they can create Rein, surely they already have sufficient date from the Wolkies :heh:

I think Morgan Freeman Dr. Turing is gonna have to make a visit to Tsuzuki then...:uhoh:

That's true :heh: And Tais is REALLY something to make Yui feel older about herself :heh:

Although, the mature look makes her more appealing :uhoh:

*runs*
Hayate created Rein and I don't think she shared how. If she did, I'm surprised there isn't many little unison devices running about. Also if the secret of creating Unison devices is known, why are other scientists studying Agito instead of stealing the plans from the TSAB? It would be much easier to steal it then to research from scratch.

BTW, are your A.Is independent from the devices they were born in? I'm trying to give Yui independence like Rein + Wolkenritter. Oh, her form is full sized just not fully solid.

Yup, and he has a wide variety of prothetics to boot. His entire left arm, for example. As for his face.... well a picture says more then a thousand words:

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y191/Liinna/Nanoha/TonPhanan.png

Although it seems that Belka healing magic does have some effect, hence why he spends time with Shamal every once in a while. ;)

Ouch :heh:

Although is the healing magic effective because it's Belkan, or because it's Shamal? :uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Wait.... Graham retired when he was in his 70's? When was that mentioned..:twitch:

Wasn't he only 50+ when he retired? :heh:

:D
Errmm, let me get back to you on that :p

:heh:

Good point :heh: Although I would still imagine that the TSAB assisted in her creation, thus they'd have at least a rough idea of how she's created. :heh:

And my AI's are device independent. They're designed to be able to operate in almost any storage device or empty Intelligent and Armed they can be transferred to. Only with my recent Zubaida Arc and Matsuri Miyama stories though are they physically independent from any devices :heh:

You are simply a munchkin. :p

And you're bossy like my sister, you're not going get me to accept Vivio like that =P


'my character can blow up planets!'

'why?'

'cause he is the son of god!'

Lame excuse for h4xx abillities. If you make the spells ritual spells, then I can start to believe it.

Your point is there but you're over exaggerating.

Devices have been known to assist mages in their spell casting.




He can fire all those spells, non-stop for ten whole minutes?

And this doesn't strike you as even a bit unbalanced?

I DON'T FREAKING KNOW ANYMORE!

Just give me what you think, I don't even care or think about how long he can fire all those because that's not how I intend for him to fight. So even if you said 10 seconds, go ahead. 10 seconds it is.

2 seconds? Sure.

...I need my drugs. -_-



Hmm, with uberbind getting nerfed to become breakable and no longer sealing magic, balance starts to show. Still, I say that the other elemental spells will have to be either ritual spells or discarded. Having a 'special device' (read, H4xx excuse) just doesn't cut it.


It's h4xx because it converts magic into elemental?

Anything that converts magic into elemental is h4xx?

As for the ritual,


Rip. Steel. Soul.: A special field magic. The area affect depends on how much magic the user puts in. This spell increase the effectiveness of all lightning spells, including the enemy's by making the surrounding air more favorable for electricity, skilled lightning users could also control the additional special effect of magnetism.

On first cast, the spell would last about 5 to 10 minutes, deteriorating slowly as time passes. Additional casting increases its effectiveness, as well as prolonging it’s duration.

In addition, when this spell reaches a certain level, the user could then cast the super-powered version of their usual lightning attacks, consuming this field spell in the process.


In simple terms.

Cast Charge. Cast Charge. Cast Charge.

Big Bang.

So If anything, he has to cast multiple rituals.

Phew, all done :D
Thanks to TK for his intial read over of it, and to Keroko for letting me borrow tesla and Keroko-chan :D

Training Grounds, RF6

-Myristic-

Pushing out into the sky for what seemed like an eternity was reason enough for me to smile. Lately, all the work involved with the unit had consisted of desk work ensuring the books were kept, that our equipment was being maintained, etc. The others were in the air already, blue, green and yellow specks of light rapidly changing positions as each of them prepared in their own ways. Opposite me, another group was rising into the sky, the colour of their magic filling the spaces between them.

Stand by for limiter release.

Seconds after the announcement power flared around me as each of us gained access to our full strength, a rainbow of colours that was beautiful to the eye, but deadly in use. I could feel the joy in the others, the limiting of powers was something that all of us objected to, but had grudgingly accepted. We were but tenants of the Ground Forces, subject to their rules and regulations while planet side.

The Weavers made their way down to me, making lazy circles in the air. I gave them thumbs up as they drew closer, a signal for them to get ready. As they finally reached me I opened my mouth to begin to going over the plan in detail.

“Don’t waste your breath Myr, we already know what to do!” David called.

“Maybe you think you do but let’s go over it again anyway” I replied.

Juliet interrupted me and in her best impersonation of me, she said “Right the mission is simple. First, we’ll proceed covertly towards the EZ as far as possible-”

Meia continued her voice low, “Once discovered by enemy forces, we are to defeat them as quickly as possible and make best speed to the EZ, stopping only to fight if necessary. As we need to return to base at 12, a time limit has been imposed. Failure to complete the exercise by 11:30 is an automatic loss to our team, represented by the arrival of enemy reinforcements.”

At this point I was laughing too hard to care that I had been interrupted, their impersonations of me a source of great amusement. “Those aren’t getting any better…. In fact I think that they’re getting worse each time you try.” Blank faces met me as I continued to laugh, before I was stopped by Mei swinging her device straight at my head, forcing me to block, fast.

The sensor grid will be disabled for the next 30 seconds, will all participants head to their starting locations.

“We’ll have to save this for later.” I yelled as we dove, heading for ground level. Accessing the menus within the TCD, I added myself to the Weaver’s displays, the device allowing us to exchange tactical data between us, in addition to maps and other low level sensors. We touched down, settling into an easy run between the concrete spires looming above. Speed was of essence. The distance we covered before getting discovered would have a massive effect on determining the outcome.

Exercise start.

We continued on for another 30 seconds without incident, before a pink sphere of magic appeared in front of us. “Combat jackets, NOW!” I called. There was no need to be told twice; the other’s summoning forth the heavily armoured over suit, the TCD automatically altering the colour from the standard black to one more suited to our environment. The sphere pulsed once, before accelerating towards us. We leapt into flight, speeding away from the location, out pacing the sphere with ease. [We’ve been spotted too early, there’s no way to avoid combat with all of their forces now. We’ll have to make a break for it.]

[Does any one have any information about the extra forces that we have to deal with? It’ll be risky to try anything ambitious without knowing their capabilities.] David asked.

[Perhaps, but we can’t afford to waste any more time. Each passing second just gives them time to create more searchers.] Meia replied. ‘Good call’ I thought. I activated the TCB, setting a directional marker. We accelerated towards the sky in a tight diamond formation, Meia in the lead, Juliet and David behind her, with me taking the rear position.

Transitioning between the levels took place without a hitch and we continued on, going from roof to roof. Since taking to the roof tops, we had avoided another 5 searcher’s, from three different users, pink, green and red. “This is taking too long. We may have to just take our chances and fly to the EP,” I said.

“Agreed,” Juliet chimed in, “We haven’t been attacked yet, but it’s going to happen soon. Breaking stealth isn’t going to be what they’re expecting, shifting the advantage to us.”

Meia deliberated for moment, “Right, you’ve convinced me.” We took off from the roof, our departure creating a small shockwave that rattled the surroundings. [Steadily increase altitude until we hit the standard flight ceiling. We’ll spread to distance 2 to give us better manoeuvring room.] Moments after we lifted off, I felt an on overwhelming sensation in the back of my skull; ten’s of pink orbs filling the space we had just vacated, many of which impacted on the roof, raising a plume of dust into the air.

[That was close. Keep an eye out.] A streak of light in the corner of my eye was the only warning of what was to come. Acting on reflex I created a shield in that direction, a flaming sword smashing into it as it materialised. The shield’s structure began to crack, white amongst the blue, getting longer and longer as the owner of the weapon continued their assault against my defences, her long pink hair trailing behind her. The other’s realised my predicament as this occurred and I sighed in relief as my shield was reinforced by Juliet, her shield weaving together with my own. Meia and David were no slower to react, each of them firing as our shields wove together. The owner of the device had no warning, the shots passing through our shields, and took two heavy blows to the body. The force of the impact blasting her back several meters.

Suddenly, tendrils of green wrapped themselves around me and Juliet. I followed the stream of energy with my eyes, to see a figure approaching from below, fists extended. He connected with my right foot, shattering the weakened shield, sending me tumbling upwards, snapping the bind on me. Juliet responded quickly, opening fire below her. Some of the bolts were blocked by his defences, pushing him away from us. Others passed by him, following the streams of green to their origin. It winked out of existence shortly after.

David and Meia had wasted no time as we came under attack, taking advantage of our misfortune to charge their own attacks. A massive beam of dark blue lanced past me, heading towards the sword knight. Another beam tinged with green swept past Juliet, heading towards our other attacker. Juliet and I added to the attacks, bolts of arcfire filling the sky.

With the completion of our attacks, we didn’t hesitate, flying away from the scene as fast as we could while maintaining formation. We heard the attacks hit home as we turned our backs form the scene, the level of the attack guaranteed to strain their barriers and magical endurance, if not take them out of the fight entirely. We managed to advance another 20 meters before the next attack came, this time from below. A pink stream of energy wide enough to rival our previous attack appeared before any of us could dodge. It hit the combined shields of Juliet and Meia directly, some of the attack leaking around the edges. Even these scraps contained enormous power, activating my automatic defences. The attack continued on, battering against their shields. It was now 3 seconds into the attack and I sensed the strain in the shield, beginning to buckle under the load of power. Quickly I reinforced the others, lending my strength to the shield. The onslaught continued, my magical reserves being burnt away at an alarming rate, just from maintaining the shield.

“Blade Storm!” Pin pricks of light materialised beneath David, making it seem like he was standing on a thick blue cloud, far to the right of us. Each point accelerating away targeting a wide area below us, where the attack came from. 2 seconds later, the attack stopped. We flew away, gaining altitude as we went. We quickly hit the flight ceiling, any higher and we would be falling out of the sky in minutes. So far we had encountered 2 of the 7 on the opposing force, and each of them had forced us to weave. ‘We underestimated their abilities.’ I thought, ‘It’s probably a good thing that there were no other combat capable members in their division.’

The respite gained from our barrage was short lived, in seconds; a swarm of orbs broke through the clouds, closely followed by a larger ellipse of magic. I kept an eye of her as we flew, with each passing moment, the gap between us and her attack decreasing. [Scatter] I sent to the others. We broke into two, taking sharp turns to the left and right respectively. The orbs followed us, splitting roughly into equal groups, small bursts of energy dissipating into the atmosphere as a swarm in the centre collided with each other. The resultant blast played havoc with our ability to sense magic. This combined with the concentration needed to dodge the remaining attacks led to me and Juliet flying straight into another attack, from none other but than the one who knew us the best, Fate.

The air in front of us was filled with plasma lancers, golden arrows that punched into our defences. The initial salvo decimated our hasty shields, leaving the second more potent attack to slam directly into our bodies. Each hit felt like getting punched gently, but the succession of attacks left me gasping in pain. Juliet faired slightly better, being further back, allowing her to bring up another shield that was able to absorb some of the attacks before breaking. [Rear Shields!] was Meia’s panicked cry. We acted instantly. I kept my eyes forward, bringing it up as Juliet spun around, casting her own directly in front of mine. I felt a tug at my magic as she began the task of merging the strength of the two together, the connection breaking as the attack rolled in, the force of it pushing us forward.

Meia and David flew past below our feet, heading towards Fate. A barrage of fire flew in their direction which they dodged nimbly, rolling to the left. A flash of green covered the sky momentarily before fading, magical energy gathered around Meia’s body as she invoked her ultimate spell, Vandread. We followed them on their attack run, wary of attacks from behind. Meia sped off, leaving David behind as she accelerated. A line of green light was all that could be seen of her, one that speared towards Fate, striking an instant later. Nothing happened as Meia re-appeared to the eye behind Fate. The damage done was apparent as we grew closer. Her barrier jacket was smoking, tiny rips throughout. The once pristine white cloak was no longer to be seen and the bottom of half of her device had simply disappeared. She was still standing, a testament to her strength and endurance. A chain of fire radiated out from David. One, two, three orbs hitting simultaneously. Her strength finally gave and she fell, face first towards the ground, descending more rapidly with each passing second.

We rejoined Meia, the fatigue that was rapidly setting in made even more apparent by her heavy breathing. “1, maybe 2 down.” She said between pants. “How much further to the EP?” she asked.

“1 minute of uninterrupted formation flying,” David replied, “Roughly 2 klicks away.”

As he spoke, I swept my eyes around, ever vigilant for attacks. The sky to the north was clear, with the south clear as well. Suddenly, a directional marker appeared in the TCD, the other’s already moving. As I went to follow them, a series of heavy blows rained upon me. My autonomous defences were destroyed by the first, leaving two to hit home, my upper arm going numb from the force, nearly making my drop my device.

The others had fared no better, a cross of heavy fire from the east and north, sending David and Juliet tumbling away, down towards the earth. Meia was the only one unaffected, having been in the centre of the group, blue, pink and red flashing past above and below her position. Shields up, she came back up to me, hovering protectively in front, letting me recompose my self. “Looks like they’re all here now…”

“Yeah, two of the others in the initial attack are down on the rooftops, in the region where Fate crashed down.” I grimaced from the delayed sensation of pain in my right arm, the numbing effect of the bolts wearing off as we spoke. “How are David and Juliet?”

“They’re fine for the moment…”She pointed off to her right, where a silhouette could be seen, “Looks like we’ve got their attention for the time being.” I reinforced our shields, as she spoke. “There’s another two behind us, one slightly higher than the other.”

I slowly turned my head in the indicated directions, a black suited figure slightly below us, the other hovering with the sun behind her, blurring her features. The sensors attached to the TCB whirled into life, filtering out the glare of the sun, and magnifying the image. It slowly became clearer, another black suited figure, holding a deadly looking pole arm.

David’s thoughts came loud, ringing in my skull, [Meia, Myristic do you read?]

I let Meia reply as I updated the TCD, with the locations of the enemy. The data transferred as Juliet replied, [Pass the word and we’ll spring the cage.]

[David, Juliet. I’ve passed you the Tac info. Intercept the two on the rooftops attending to Fate. We’ll be fine up here. Just be careful, we’re still unsure of the status of the sword knight….] Fire from three separate directions flew towards us, interrupting me. We dodged around it nimbly, bolts colliding with each other, exploding with brilliant colour, providing a spectacular light show for all to see.

David’s mental reply came shortly after. [Beginning our attack run now.] I focused on our opponents, mentally mapping their positions in the sky, “We’re heading straight for Nanoha then?” I asked, “Unless of course you want to make this harder….”

Laughter greeted me, “I’d say that we’re up to the challenge… but it’s far too dangerous with a cannon pointed at your back.” She gave me a thumbs up, “Here’s the plan. Charge, dodge and kill. Any questions?”

“I can see why the others like you in charge…” I said dryly, “I certainly didn’t let them do what they wanted all the time.”

“Simple is best after all,” Meia shot back. “Unlike some of the convoluted plans you came up with…” She readied her device, the tip glowing with power as an overcharged arcfire was readied. I swung around, reaching for my magic, mental blocks releasing as I pulled. Bringing my device to my shoulder, I took aim and fired in one fluid motion, lancing towards the axe wielder, Keroko. Meia moved as it sped off, myself following soon after. My barriers focused solely towards the rear, relying on Meia for our forward protection.

We covered the distance between ourselves and Nanoha in a mere 6 seconds. 3 seconds in, we were surrounded by a deadly halo of energy, which ripped into our defences. Each and every impact slowly reducing the effectiveness of the barriers. Thankfully, the barrage ceased as we moved within 150 metres of her position. We were now close enough to hear what she was saying.

One. Two. Three. Her device loaded in rapid succession, the empty casings caught the sun as they fell, three points of light that stood out in the background as she yelled her next attack. “DIVINE BU—SU—TER!”

It was only 100 meters to her as she fired. A pink beam that eclipsed the brightness of everything else in the area. I rotated my barrier around to face forward, calling a round shield into existence directly behind it, followed by Meia’s own. We flew head first into the column of energy, our weakened barriers holding for a split second before collapsing. Nanoha’s attack continued on, it’s force unabated, smashing into our shields with ferocious intensity. Unlike the first time, we were prepared for the tremendous force of the beam, the second we had to prepare allowing us to reinforce the structure of the shielding, making it more resistant. Even with the extra preparations, the sheer amount of power was beginning to eat away at the shield. Everything about the attack was astounding, the power, the scale, the duration. Even the sound was astonishing, silent in flight, yet once it encountered any resistance, growing in noise, as if the attack was cheering itself on. “This can’t continue on for much longer can it?” I roared, fighting to make myself heard.

Meia shook her head, [What was that? I missed it.]

[This can’t continue for much longer can it?]

[Perhaps not… Still, it’s time to begin the counter.] I nodded. Carefully, we began to edge towards the outer edges of the shield. I held my device out, the head of the staff pushing against our shield. I glanced upwards to check that Meia was in position. She was in a similar position to mine, a slight nod indicating that her readiness.

Slowly, we slipped out past the edge of the shield. I could feel my barrier jacket getting whipped about in the outer edges of the beam. The tips of our devices held the shield in place. I tightened my grip around the bottom of the shaft. In unison with Meia, I slowly pulled the head across the face of the shield, moving further and further away from its protective embrace.

It was a risky plan. We would slip away while maintaining the shield. Detonate the shield to make it seem like the attack was a success, and hit them once they moved to confirm. It had worked so far, but we were now approaching the hardest part, holding the shield in place while we moved away from it. One sudden movement and we would get caught in the onslaught of the attack. The head of my device was now approaching the edge. Bold letters flashed into view.

[I]Objects approaching from 7 o’clock

I turned my head to the left, careful to keep my grip steady. Behind me, I could faintly make out the figures of two people.

[I’m in position] came Meia’s reassuring voice, [Myr. Move up a little, then slowly pull away for a moment.]

I followed her instructions, flinching as I pulled away. ‘I hope she knows what she’s doing.’ [Ready]

[In three, flee.]

[One] Bolts from Keroko and Tesla slammed into my side. The shield tilted further as the bolts pushed me slightly to the right.

[Two] It was nearly time. [I]Acceleration.

[Three] I pushed away at top speed. The shield collapsed behind me as I fled, the torrent of energy that had been stopped in its tracks resuming its destructive path. Looking back, I could now see why Meia had told me to shift positions slightly. Instead of following its original path, the beam was now heading a slightly different direction, straight towards the incoming fliers.

[We can worry about them later, get to Nanoha!] I mentally berated myself for getting distracted as I moved off. I focused my aim at her, sighting along the length of my device as I flew towards her. The head of my device was filling with energy, a tactic that had been developed within the unit to mask the charging of spells from the enemy. A light on the side flashed twice, showing me that we were ready to fire.

[Ready?] In response, a counter appeared on screen.

2.

1.

0. A cone of energy appeared from my device as I fired. It grew to a diameter of half a metre as it left my staff. The air crackled as it zipped past, tiny sparks of electricity leaping around the attack before disappearing just as quickly. I was a mere 50 metres from her as I fired, just far enough away for her to bring up a shield before it struck.

Focused as she was on my attack, Nanoha was caught by surprise from behind as Meia’s buster devastated her defences. The shock of it must have broken her concentration, my own attack slamming into her body a second later. I followed up with a bind, thick bands of magic that prevented her from moving. “I don’t suppose you’d like to stand down and pretend that you’ve been knocked out.” I asked her as I moved closer to her. “It’d be easier on your body.”

“Taking pity on your opponent? That’s not good Captain,” Nanoha replied. Then to my shock, she continued, “Raising Heart, Mode release.”

Alright, my master.

“I didn’t think you’d actually agree to it.”

“As much as I’d live to try and continue resisting, I’d have been taken out in seconds. Getting knocked out isn’t my definition of fun. Plus, I still have paper work to do….” She concluded with a sigh.

Before I could reply, a stream of red fire cut across the space between me and Nanoha, sending me diving backwards.

“Che, Looks like my plan didn’t quite work out.” Meia said as she returned fire with a trio of arcfires. “Then again, I didn’t really expect it to work that well either.”

“Plan?” I asked, scanning the sky below me.

“Later,” She replied tersely, “The priority is to meet up with the others before heading to the EP. We’re clear?”

“It looks like it, but they’ll be down there somewhere,” I said. [David, status?]

Silence.

[Juliet, status?]

[We’re lying low about 100 metres from the initial tac point.] A sense of annoyance and anger pervaded her thoughts. [The sword wielder caught us off guard. She’s no longer a problem, but Dave’s down.]

[Fuck.]

[My thoughts exactly.]

[Hold your postion, we’re on our way.]

[Roger]

****

1054

Crouching, I edged the tip of my device past the corner, the live video stream directed to the TCD. Doubling checking my surroundings, I swiftly ran across the gap. I was now only 20 metres from Juliet’s position, and although I hadn’t seen any sign of pursuit since Meia and I had split up, it wasn’t the time to get sloppy. ‘It’s quiet… almost too quiet.’

As I rounded the corner of the next building, the waypoint marker ticked to 6m. Stopping behind the low wall facing the complex, I glanced around, trying to find them. [Juliet, confirm your position.]

[Above, to your right.] I turned my head slightly to my right, searching when I finally saw them.

[Well at least we know that the camo works… No way that I would have spotted you on my own.]

[R&D will be pleased. Completely useless for combat however.]

[Well, we can’t have everything.] I sent, as I floated up to them. “Damm, he’s going to be sore as hell later tonight.” I remarked as I saw him, “What the hell hit him?” His jacket was shredded; you could see faint bruises developing where the jacket had disappeared.

“I didn’t get a very good look of it, but it was a chain whip of sought. I was more concerned with taking her down as quick as possible. Hard to believe she could still be standing after what we hit her with.” She shook her head in disbelief before continuing, “The control she had was incredible as well, manipulating the attack to just score the surface. I’d hate to go up against her one on one.”

I finished checking his vitals as she stopped. “We’ll have to give him a proper check later, but he’s fine to move.” Kneeling next to him, I pulled his limp body up, draping his arms over my shoulders, loosely binding him into position. Awkwardly I stood, my left arm snaking behind to support his weight. “Right, let’s go. Juliet, take point.”

Together, we manoeuvred through the streets. Meia’s icon grew solid after we had gone 50 metres towards the EP. It reassured me that she was watching close by. ‘1536 metres and counting.’ We sped up as we approached an intersection.

It proved to be a good decision.

An instant after we swept through, it exploded. The shockwave of the blast pushing me into the side of the building. Shattered fragments of glass rained down around us as we scurried for cover. Pushing our backs against the building, I began erecting a shield around us as Juliet scanned the area for signs of the enemy. It was rocked within seconds, a duo of projectiles coming from the west.

Out of the haze surrounding the intersection, I could just make out the shape of an axe. Juliet opened fire, filling the air around the blades with arcfire. The figure burst out of the haze, finally giving us a visual of the wraith that had been stalking us for the past 10-15 min. A pure black bodysuit, edged with lines of blood red. Fiery red hair tied into a ponytail, double headed axe in hand. Not the best camouflage, but one that would strike fear into those that she swooped down on. Another figure flew up to join her, blue hair streaming behind her. Her jacket was much like Keroko’s, but lined in blue.

Meia’s voice butted in, [Myristic, Juliet, keep them there.]

“So uh… what’s with the hair matching lining?” I asked, my voice booming across the gap.

[Working on it. Juliet, get ready to break for it. Meia, take the red head. We’ll take the other.]

[Understood] Juliet replied.

Silence.

One of the two quickly retorted, “You’re about to get caught, incarcerated for espionage and yet that’s the first question you ask?”

“We’re not in chains yet.” A flash of green streaked past, zipping through. It was a surreal moment, one that could easily fit into a play, our ‘angel’ of salvation appearing right on cue to save us. Although whether we would have a happy ending remains to be seen.

We blazed away from our position, Juliet slightly behind, readying her attack. Tesla’s bolts slammed uselessly into my shield, and was taken out by Juliet’s gamma ray. We cut to their left as we breezed through, opting to take the direct flight path to the EP, instead of lurking in the shadows. Meia joined us, coming up behind me as we raced through the streets, raising our altitude as we went along.

Without warning spikes of energy appeared in out path, erupting from the sides of the building, boxing us between them. Already close to the end of the ‘roof’ we continued on. Finally emerging out from it, we shot upwards.

I managed to ascend 2 metres before I was roughly jerked back down. Meia joined me on the descent. Two thin streams of green energy were wrapped around out legs, stretched into the shadows. It wasn’t the strongest of binds, but in our weakened states, was sufficient to hold us in place. Juliet flew back in, firing away. We watched in anticipation as the bolts flew down.

Nothing.

I could see Juliet nodding above us, obviously receiving guidance from Meia. Coming in closer to me, she said, “Cut the binds, I’ll take David,” as she draped his arms around her.

“Careful now, don’t want to drop him.” With that I released the final bind. She moved slowly away from us, David’s limp form on her back before she flew off, heading straight up. [Myr, D-cannon at the ready. We’ll drop it on top of their heads once we get closer.]

We were reeled in slowly. It became apparent why Juliet’s earlier attack failed once we came to within 15 metres of Shamal. [Well he’s obviously worthy of his title, the Shielding Guardian Beast. Although whether he’s capable of shrugging off 2 D’s are another question.] The gathering energy threatened to explode from my grasp as we were dragged down. I quickly managed to get it back under my control, storing it into my device.

[Once we pass 10 metres, fire]

‘Not a moment too soon, I wouldn’t have been able to hold it for much longer.’ I thought.

“Fire,” I murmured softly as we passed the mark.

A dark sphere instantaneously formed over the pair, its swirling depths an endless void of pure black. It crashed down on top of them, enveloping their figures in its destructive embrace. A gamma ray speared into it seconds later, following the tendrils that still bound us. They pulsed once before unwrapping themselves, getting pulled into the depths of the spell before we could blink.

We watched on silently as we retreated from the scene, heading upwards at speed, until we could no longer see it lying below us.

She was waiting for us as we appeared between the buildings. “Any problems?” Meia asked as we came into speaking distance.

“None,” she stated matter of factly, “I think I caught a glimpse of the other two about a minute ago, but the searcher revealed nothing.”

I shrugged, “Well even if they’re still conscious, Keroko won’t be too much of a problem. Vandread hurts… a lot. Although much more of this and I won’t be moving for a while.”

“Agreed. I haven’t been hit as much as you have sir, but what’s gotten through is going to hurt a lot later on.” Juliet said as she nodded, agreeing to my statement.

“Right, let’s get moving. Only a klick left now.” Meia said.

****

The next minute passed swiftly, with no further interruptions. My battered body protested as we flew along, at a much slower pace than what we were capable of. The roughly hour long exercise had depleted much of my energy. Judging from the others, they were pretty worn out as well.

The distance left to the EP ticked down quickly in flight, until the counter was no more.

Exercise completed at 1121.

“Next time we do this, find some easier opponents for us…I’m going to be sore for a week.” Juliet said as we made our way to the ground.

I chuckled, “No problem, I’m not that big a masochist that I want to suffer their attacks day in and out.”

“Sure you’re not.”


Just one more part to go now. It shouldn't take too long as well since there won't be any actions scenes to painstakingly construct.

Thoughts please, if you have any, even if just to say that is sucked and you have to learn to write :p

Ouch :heh:

Although is the healing magic effective because it's Belkan, or because it's Shamal? :uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Belkan. Phanan is suffering from a reverse snake poison effect. Much like how snakes are immume to venom of their own kind, Phanan has very potent healing magic, but he is immume to Mid-style healing, and many closely related types. Belkan is among one of the types apparently not affected by Phanan's immunity.

And you're bossy like my sister, you're not going get me to accept Vivio like that =P

Even though Vivio is apparently driving a wedge between NXF in the upcomming sound stage?

Your point is there but you're over exaggerating.

The principle is the same, though.

Devices have been known to assist mages in their spell casting.

Assist, yes. But not to the point where they allow the user to use multiple ellements with little apparent effort. Up untill now all elemental spells have been either cast by someone with an affinity, cast by someone with both training and a device specialized in one element, or were ritual spells (In other words, chanted).

The only known exception to that rule would be Rein, which is a Unision Device and a rarety on her own.

I DON'T FREAKING KNOW ANYMORE!

Just give me what you think, I don't even care or think about how long he can fire all those because that's not how I intend for him to fight. So even if you said 10 seconds, go ahead. 10 seconds it is.

2 seconds? Sure.

If channeling only one of the spells in that list, a minute or 5 would be the edge. And it depends on the spell in question, too.

...I need my drugs. -_-

You've just been on the sidelines of these H4XXbustings for too long and never really paid attention to them. :p

It's h4xx because it converts magic into elemental?

Anything that converts magic into elemental is h4xx?

It's h4xx because it can convert mana into any ellement. Even Durandal was build to assist the mage into converting and it was speciallized to ice.

As for the ritual,

In simple terms.

Cast Charge. Cast Charge. Cast Charge.

Big Bang.

So If anything, he has to cast multiple rituals.

Ritual spells are spells with a chant to go along with them, not just charge time.

Phew, all done :D
Thanks to TK for his intial read over of it, and to Keroko for letting me borrow tesla and Keroko-chan :D

Training Grounds, RF6

-Myristic-

Pushing out into the sky for what seemed like an eternity was reason enough for me to smile. Lately, all the work involved with the unit had consisted of desk work ensuring the books were kept, that our equipment was being maintained, etc. The others were in the air already, blue, green and yellow specks of light rapidly changing positions as each of them prepared in their own ways. Opposite me, another group was rising into the sky, the colour of their magic filling the spaces between them.

Stand by for limiter release.

Seconds after the announcement power flared around me as each of us gained access to our full strength, a rainbow of colours that was beautiful to the eye, but deadly in use. I could feel the joy in the others, the limiting of powers was something that all of us objected to, but had grudgingly accepted. We were but tenants of the Ground Forces, subject to their rules and regulations while planet side.

The Weavers made their way down to me, making lazy circles in the air. I gave them thumbs up as they drew closer, a signal for them to get ready. As they finally reached me I opened my mouth to begin to going over the plan in detail.

“Don’t waste your breath Myr, we already know what to do!” David called.

“Maybe you think you do but let’s go over it again anyway” I replied.

Juliet interrupted me and in her best impersonation of me, she said “Right the mission is simple. First, we’ll proceed covertly towards the EZ as far as possible-”

Meia continued her voice low, “Once discovered by enemy forces, we are to defeat them as quickly as possible and make best speed to the EZ, stopping only to fight if necessary. As we need to return to base at 12, a time limit has been imposed. Failure to complete the exercise by 11:30 is an automatic loss to our team, represented by the arrival of enemy reinforcements.”

At this point I was laughing too hard to care that I had been interrupted, their impersonations of me a source of great amusement. “Those aren’t getting any better…. In fact I think that they’re getting worse each time you try.” Blank faces met me as I continued to laugh, before I was stopped by Mei swinging her device straight at my head, forcing me to block, fast.

The sensor grid will be disabled for the next 30 seconds, will all participants head to their starting locations.

“We’ll have to save this for later.” I yelled as we dove, heading for ground level. Accessing the menus within the TCD, I added myself to the Weaver’s displays, the device allowing us to exchange tactical data between us, in addition to maps and other low level sensors. We touched down, settling into an easy run between the concrete spires looming above. Speed was of essence. The distance we covered before getting discovered would have a massive effect on determining the outcome.

Exercise start.

We continued on for another 30 seconds without incident, before a pink sphere of magic appeared in front of us. “Combat jackets, NOW!” I called. There was no need to be told twice; the other’s summoning forth the heavily armoured over suit, the TCD automatically altering the colour from the standard black to one more suited to our environment. The sphere pulsed once, before accelerating towards us. We leapt into flight, speeding away from the location, out pacing the sphere with ease. [We’ve been spotted too early, there’s no way to avoid combat with all of their forces now. We’ll have to make a break for it.]

[Does any one have any information about the extra forces that we have to deal with? It’ll be risky to try anything ambitious without knowing their capabilities.] David asked.

[Perhaps, but we can’t afford to waste any more time. Each passing second just gives them time to create more searchers.] Meia replied. ‘Good call’ I thought. I activated the TCB, setting a directional marker. We accelerated towards the sky in a tight diamond formation, Meia in the lead, Juliet and David behind her, with me taking the rear position.

Transitioning between the levels took place without a hitch and we continued on, going from roof to roof. Since taking to the roof tops, we had avoided another 5 searcher’s, from three different users, pink, green and red. “This is taking too long. We may have to just take our chances and fly to the EP,” I said.

“Agreed,” Juliet chimed in, “We haven’t been attacked yet, but it’s going to happen soon. Breaking stealth isn’t going to be what they’re expecting, shifting the advantage to us.”

Meia deliberated for moment, “Right, you’ve convinced me.” We took off from the roof, our departure creating a small shockwave that rattled the surroundings. [Steadily increase altitude until we hit the standard flight ceiling. We’ll spread to distance 2 to give us better manoeuvring room.] Moments after we lifted off, I felt an on overwhelming sensation in the back of my skull; ten’s of pink orbs filling the space we had just vacated, many of which impacted on the roof, raising a plume of dust into the air.

[That was close. Keep an eye out.] A streak of light in the corner of my eye was the only warning of what was to come. Acting on reflex I created a shield in that direction, a flaming sword smashing into it as it materialised. The shield’s structure began to crack, white amongst the blue, getting longer and longer as the owner of the weapon continued their assault against my defences, her long pink hair trailing behind her. The other’s realised my predicament as this occurred and I sighed in relief as my shield was reinforced by Juliet, her shield weaving together with my own. Meia and David were no slower to react, each of them firing as our shields wove together. The owner of the device had no warning, the shots passing through our shields, and took two heavy blows to the body. The force of the impact blasting her back several meters.

Suddenly, tendrils of green wrapped themselves around me and Juliet. I followed the stream of energy with my eyes, to see a figure approaching from below, fists extended. He connected with my right foot, shattering the weakened shield, sending me tumbling upwards, snapping the bind on me. Juliet responded quickly, opening fire below her. Some of the bolts were blocked by his defences, pushing him away from us. Others passed by him, following the streams of green to their origin. It winked out of existence shortly after.

David and Meia had wasted no time as we came under attack, taking advantage of our misfortune to charge their own attacks. A massive beam of dark blue lanced past me, heading towards the sword knight. Another beam tinged with green swept past Juliet, heading towards our other attacker. Juliet and I added to the attacks, bolts of arcfire filling the sky.

With the completion of our attacks, we didn’t hesitate, flying away from the scene as fast as we could while maintaining formation. We heard the attacks hit home as we turned our backs form the scene, the level of the attack guaranteed to strain their barriers and magical endurance, if not take them out of the fight entirely. We managed to advance another 20 meters before the next attack came, this time from below. A pink stream of energy wide enough to rival our previous attack appeared before any of us could dodge. It hit the combined shields of Juliet and Meia directly, some of the attack leaking around the edges. Even these scraps contained enormous power, activating my automatic defences. The attack continued on, battering against their shields. It was now 3 seconds into the attack and I sensed the strain in the shield, beginning to buckle under the load of power. Quickly I reinforced the others, lending my strength to the shield. The onslaught continued, my magical reserves being burnt away at an alarming rate, just from maintaining the shield.

“Blade Storm!” Pin pricks of light materialised beneath David, making it seem like he was standing on a thick blue cloud, far to the right of us. Each point accelerating away targeting a wide area below us, where the attack came from. 2 seconds later, the attack stopped. We flew away, gaining altitude as we went. We quickly hit the flight ceiling, any higher and we would be falling out of the sky in minutes. So far we had encountered 2 of the 7 on the opposing force, and each of them had forced us to weave. ‘We underestimated their abilities.’ I thought, ‘It’s probably a good thing that there were no other combat capable members in their division.’

The respite gained from our barrage was short lived, in seconds; a swarm of orbs broke through the clouds, closely followed by a larger ellipse of magic. I kept an eye of her as we flew, with each passing moment, the gap between us and her attack decreasing. [Scatter] I sent to the others. We broke into two, taking sharp turns to the left and right respectively. The orbs followed us, splitting roughly into equal groups, small bursts of energy dissipating into the atmosphere as a swarm in the centre collided with each other. The resultant blast played havoc with our ability to sense magic. This combined with the concentration needed to dodge the remaining attacks led to me and Juliet flying straight into another attack, from none other but than the one who knew us the best, Fate.

The air in front of us was filled with plasma lancers, golden arrows that punched into our defences. The initial salvo decimated our hasty shields, leaving the second more potent attack to slam directly into our bodies. Each hit felt like getting punched gently, but the succession of attacks left me gasping in pain. Juliet faired slightly better, being further back, allowing her to bring up another shield that was able to absorb some of the attacks before breaking. [Rear Shields!] was Meia’s panicked cry. We acted instantly. I kept my eyes forward, bringing it up as Juliet spun around, casting her own directly in front of mine. I felt a tug at my magic as she began the task of merging the strength of the two together, the connection breaking as the attack rolled in, the force of it pushing us forward.

Meia and David flew past below our feet, heading towards Fate. A barrage of fire flew in their direction which they dodged nimbly, rolling to the left. A flash of green covered the sky momentarily before fading, magical energy gathered around Meia’s body as she invoked her ultimate spell, Vandread. We followed them on their attack run, wary of attacks from behind. Meia sped off, leaving David behind as she accelerated. A line of green light was all that could be seen of her, one that speared towards Fate, striking an instant later. Nothing happened as Meia re-appeared to the eye behind Fate. The damage done was apparent as we grew closer. Her barrier jacket was smoking, tiny rips throughout. The once pristine white cloak was no longer to be seen and the bottom of half of her device had simply disappeared. She was still standing, a testament to her strength and endurance. A chain of fire radiated out from David. One, two, three orbs hitting simultaneously. Her strength finally gave and she fell, face first towards the ground, descending more rapidly with each passing second.

We rejoined Meia, the fatigue that was rapidly setting in made even more apparent by her heavy breathing. “1, maybe 2 down.” She said between pants. “How much further to the EP?” she asked.

“1 minute of uninterrupted formation flying,” David replied, “Roughly 2 klicks away.”

As he spoke, I swept my eyes around, ever vigilant for attacks. The sky to the north was clear, with the south clear as well. Suddenly, a directional marker appeared in the TCD, the other’s already moving. As I went to follow them, a series of heavy blows rained upon me. My autonomous defences were destroyed by the first, leaving two to hit home, my upper arm going numb from the force, nearly making my drop my device.

The others had fared no better, a cross of heavy fire from the east and north, sending David and Juliet tumbling away, down towards the earth. Meia was the only one unaffected, having been in the centre of the group, blue, pink and red flashing past above and below her position. Shields up, she came back up to me, hovering protectively in front, letting me recompose my self. “Looks like they’re all here now…”

“Yeah, two of the others in the initial attack are down on the rooftops, in the region where Fate crashed down.” I grimaced from the delayed sensation of pain in my right arm, the numbing effect of the bolts wearing off as we spoke. “How are David and Juliet?”

“They’re fine for the moment…”She pointed off to her right, where a silhouette could be seen, “Looks like we’ve got their attention for the time being.” I reinforced our shields, as she spoke. “There’s another two behind us, one slightly higher than the other.”

I slowly turned my head in the indicated directions, a black suited figure slightly below us, the other hovering with the sun behind her, blurring her features. The sensors attached to the TCB whirled into life, filtering out the glare of the sun, and magnifying the image. It slowly became clearer, another black suited figure, holding a deadly looking pole arm.

David’s thoughts came loud, ringing in my skull, [Meia, Myristic do you read?]

I let Meia reply as I updated the TCD, with the locations of the enemy. The data transferred as Juliet replied, [Pass the word and we’ll spring the cage.]

[David, Juliet. I’ve passed you the Tac info. Intercept the two on the rooftops attending to Fate. We’ll be fine up here. Just be careful, we’re still unsure of the status of the sword knight….] Fire from three separate directions flew towards us, interrupting me. We dodged around it nimbly, bolts colliding with each other, exploding with brilliant colour, providing a spectacular light show for all to see.

David’s mental reply came shortly after. [Beginning our attack run now.] I focused on our opponents, mentally mapping their positions in the sky, “We’re heading straight for Nanoha then?” I asked, “Unless of course you want to make this harder….”

Laughter greeted me, “I’d say that we’re up to the challenge… but it’s far too dangerous with a cannon pointed at your back.” She gave me a thumbs up, “Here’s the plan. Charge, dodge and kill. Any questions?”

“I can see why the others like you in charge…” I said dryly, “I certainly didn’t let them do what they wanted all the time.”

“Simple is best after all,” Meia shot back. “Unlike some of the convoluted plans you came up with…” She readied her device, the tip glowing with power as an overcharged arcfire was readied. I swung around, reaching for my magic, mental blocks releasing as I pulled. Bringing my device to my shoulder, I took aim and fired in one fluid motion, lancing towards the axe wielder, Keroko. Meia moved as it sped off, myself following soon after. My barriers focused solely towards the rear, relying on Meia for our forward protection.

We covered the distance between ourselves and Nanoha in a mere 6 seconds. 3 seconds in, we were surrounded by a deadly halo of energy, which ripped into our defences. Each and every impact slowly reducing the effectiveness of the barriers. Thankfully, the barrage ceased as we moved within 150 metres of her position. We were now close enough to hear what she was saying.

One. Two. Three. Her device loaded in rapid succession, the empty casings caught the sun as they fell, three points of light that stood out in the background as she yelled her next attack. “DIVINE BU—SU—TER!”

It was only 100 meters to her as she fired. A pink beam that eclipsed the brightness of everything else in the area. I rotated my barrier around to face forward, calling a round shield into existence directly behind it, followed by Meia’s own. We flew head first into the column of energy, our weakened barriers holding for a split second before collapsing. Nanoha’s attack continued on, it’s force unabated, smashing into our shields with ferocious intensity. Unlike the first time, we were prepared for the tremendous force of the beam, the second we had to prepare allowing us to reinforce the structure of the shielding, making it more resistant. Even with the extra preparations, the sheer amount of power was beginning to eat away at the shield. Everything about the attack was astounding, the power, the scale, the duration. Even the sound was astonishing, silent in flight, yet once it encountered any resistance, growing in noise, as if the attack was cheering itself on. “This can’t continue on for much longer can it?” I roared, fighting to make myself heard.

Meia shook her head, [What was that? I missed it.]

[This can’t continue for much longer can it?]

[Perhaps not… Still, it’s time to begin the counter.] I nodded. Carefully, we began to edge towards the outer edges of the shield. I held my device out, the head of the staff pushing against our shield. I glanced upwards to check that Meia was in position. She was in a similar position to mine, a slight nod indicating that her readiness.

Slowly, we slipped out past the edge of the shield. I could feel my barrier jacket getting whipped about in the outer edges of the beam. The tips of our devices held the shield in place. I tightened my grip around the bottom of the shaft. In unison with Meia, I slowly pulled the head across the face of the shield, moving further and further away from its protective embrace.

It was a risky plan. We would slip away while maintaining the shield. Detonate the shield to make it seem like the attack was a success, and hit them once they moved to confirm. It had worked so far, but we were now approaching the hardest part, holding the shield in place while we moved away from it. One sudden movement and we would get caught in the onslaught of the attack. The head of my device was now approaching the edge. Bold letters flashed into view.

[I]Objects approaching from 7 o’clock

I turned my head to the left, careful to keep my grip steady. Behind me, I could faintly make out the figures of two people.

[I’m in position] came Meia’s reassuring voice, [Myr. Move up a little, then slowly pull away for a moment.]

I followed her instructions, flinching as I pulled away. ‘I hope she knows what she’s doing.’ [Ready]

[In three, flee.]

[One] Bolts from Keroko and Tesla slammed into my side. The shield tilted further as the bolts pushed me slightly to the right.

[Two] It was nearly time. [I]Acceleration.

[Three] I pushed away at top speed. The shield collapsed behind me as I fled, the torrent of energy that had been stopped in its tracks resuming its destructive path. Looking back, I could now see why Meia had told me to shift positions slightly. Instead of following its original path, the beam was now heading a slightly different direction, straight towards the incoming fliers.

[We can worry about them later, get to Nanoha!] I mentally berated myself for getting distracted as I moved off. I focused my aim at her, sighting along the length of my device as I flew towards her. The head of my device was filling with energy, a tactic that had been developed within the unit to mask the charging of spells from the enemy. A light on the side flashed twice, showing me that we were ready to fire.

[Ready?] In response, a counter appeared on screen.

2.

1.

0. A cone of energy appeared from my device as I fired. It grew to a diameter of half a metre as it left my staff. The air crackled as it zipped past, tiny sparks of electricity leaping around the attack before disappearing just as quickly. I was a mere 50 metres from her as I fired, just far enough away for her to bring up a shield before it struck.

Focused as she was on my attack, Nanoha was caught by surprise from behind as Meia’s buster devastated her defences. The shock of it must have broken her concentration, my own attack slamming into her body a second later. I followed up with a bind, thick bands of magic that prevented her from moving. “I don’t suppose you’d like to stand down and pretend that you’ve been knocked out.” I asked her as I moved closer to her. “It’d be easier on your body.”

“Taking pity on your opponent? That’s not good Captain,” Nanoha replied. Then to my shock, she continued, “Raising Heart, Mode release.”

Alright, my master.

“I didn’t think you’d actually agree to it.”

“As much as I’d live to try and continue resisting, I’d have been taken out in seconds. Getting knocked out isn’t my definition of fun. Plus, I still have paper work to do….” She concluded with a sigh.

Before I could reply, a stream of red fire cut across the space between me and Nanoha, sending me diving backwards.

“Che, Looks like my plan didn’t quite work out.” Meia said as she returned fire with a trio of arcfires. “Then again, I didn’t really expect it to work that well either.”

“Plan?” I asked, scanning the sky below me.

“Later,” She replied tersely, “The priority is to meet up with the others before heading to the EP. We’re clear?”

“It looks like it, but they’ll be down there somewhere,” I said. [David, status?]

Silence.

[Juliet, status?]

[We’re lying low about 100 metres from the initial tac point.] A sense of annoyance and anger pervaded her thoughts. [The sword wielder caught us off guard. She’s no longer a problem, but Dave’s down.]

[Fuck.]

[My thoughts exactly.]

[Hold your postion, we’re on our way.]

[Roger]

****

1054

Crouching, I edged the tip of my device past the corner, the live video stream directed to the TCD. Doubling checking my surroundings, I swiftly ran across the gap. I was now only 20 metres from Juliet’s position, and although I hadn’t seen any sign of pursuit since Meia and I had split up, it wasn’t the time to get sloppy. ‘It’s quiet… almost too quiet.’

As I rounded the corner of the next building, the waypoint marker ticked to 6m. Stopping behind the low wall facing the complex, I glanced around, trying to find them. [Juliet, confirm your position.]

[Above, to your right.] I turned my head slightly to my right, searching when I finally saw them.

[Well at least we know that the camo works… No way that I would have spotted you on my own.]

[R&D will be pleased. Completely useless for combat however.]

[Well, we can’t have everything.] I sent, as I floated up to them. “Damm, he’s going to be sore as hell later tonight.” I remarked as I saw him, “What the hell hit him?” His jacket was shredded; you could see faint bruises developing where the jacket had disappeared.

“I didn’t get a very good look of it, but it was a chain whip of sought. I was more concerned with taking her down as quick as possible. Hard to believe she could still be standing after what we hit her with.” She shook her head in disbelief before continuing, “The control she had was incredible as well, manipulating the attack to just score the surface. I’d hate to go up against her one on one.”

I finished checking his vitals as she stopped. “We’ll have to give him a proper check later, but he’s fine to move.” Kneeling next to him, I pulled his limp body up, draping his arms over my shoulders, loosely binding him into position. Awkwardly I stood, my left arm snaking behind to support his weight. “Right, let’s go. Juliet, take point.”

Together, we manoeuvred through the streets. Meia’s icon grew solid after we had gone 50 metres towards the EP. It reassured me that she was watching close by. ‘1536 metres and counting.’ We sped up as we approached an intersection.

It proved to be a good decision.

An instant after we swept through, it exploded. The shockwave of the blast pushing me into the side of the building. Shattered fragments of glass rained down around us as we scurried for cover. Pushing our backs against the building, I began erecting a shield around us as Juliet scanned the area for signs of the enemy. It was rocked within seconds, a duo of projectiles coming from the west.

Out of the haze surrounding the intersection, I could just make out the shape of an axe. Juliet opened fire, filling the air around the blades with arcfire. The figure burst out of the haze, finally giving us a visual of the wraith that had been stalking us for the past 10-15 min. A pure black bodysuit, edged with lines of blood red. Fiery red hair tied into a ponytail, double headed axe in hand. Not the best camouflage, but one that would strike fear into those that she swooped down on. Another figure flew up to join her, blue hair streaming behind her. Her jacket was much like Keroko’s, but lined in blue.

Meia’s voice butted in, [Myristic, Juliet, keep them there.]

“So uh… what’s with the hair matching lining?” I asked, my voice booming across the gap.

[Working on it. Juliet, get ready to break for it. Meia, take the red head. We’ll take the other.]

[Understood] Juliet replied.

Silence.

One of the two quickly retorted, “You’re about to get caught, incarcerated for espionage and yet that’s the first question you ask?”

“We’re not in chains yet.” A flash of green streaked past, zipping through. It was a surreal moment, one that could easily fit into a play, our ‘angel’ of salvation appearing right on cue to save us. Although whether we would have a happy ending remains to be seen.

We blazed away from our position, Juliet slightly behind, readying her attack. Tesla’s bolts slammed uselessly into my shield, and was taken out by Juliet’s gamma ray. We cut to their left as we breezed through, opting to take the direct flight path to the EP, instead of lurking in the shadows. Meia joined us, coming up behind me as we raced through the streets, raising our altitude as we went along.

Without warning spikes of energy appeared in out path, erupting from the sides of the building, boxing us between them. Already close to the end of the ‘roof’ we continued on. Finally emerging out from it, we shot upwards.

I managed to ascend 2 metres before I was roughly jerked back down. Meia joined me on the descent. Two thin streams of green energy were wrapped around out legs, stretched into the shadows. It wasn’t the strongest of binds, but in our weakened states, was sufficient to hold us in place. Juliet flew back in, firing away. We watched in anticipation as the bolts flew down.

Nothing.

I could see Juliet nodding above us, obviously receiving guidance from Meia. Coming in closer to me, she said, “Cut the binds, I’ll take David,” as she draped his arms around her.

“Careful now, don’t want to drop him.” With that I released the final bind. She moved slowly away from us, David’s limp form on her back before she flew off, heading straight up. [Myr, D-cannon at the ready. We’ll drop it on top of their heads once we get closer.]

We were reeled in slowly. It became apparent why Juliet’s earlier attack failed once we came to within 15 metres of Shamal. [Well he’s obviously worthy of his title, the Shielding Guardian Beast. Although whether he’s capable of shrugging off 2 D’s are another question.] The gathering energy threatened to explode from my grasp as we were dragged down. I quickly managed to get it back under my control, storing it into my device.

[Once we pass 10 metres, fire]

‘Not a moment too soon, I wouldn’t have been able to hold it for much longer.’ I thought.

“Fire,” I murmured softly as we passed the mark.

A dark sphere instantaneously formed over the pair, its swirling depths an endless void of pure black. It crashed down on top of them, enveloping their figures in its destructive embrace. A gamma ray speared into it seconds later, following the tendrils that still bound us. They pulsed once before unwrapping themselves, getting pulled into the depths of the spell before we could blink.

We watched on silently as we retreated from the scene, heading upwards at speed, until we could no longer see it lying below us.

She was waiting for us as we appeared between the buildings. “Any problems?” Meia asked as we came into speaking distance.

“None,” she stated matter of factly, “I think I caught a glimpse of the other two about a minute ago, but the searcher revealed nothing.”

I shrugged, “Well even if they’re still conscious, Keroko won’t be too much of a problem. Vandread hurts… a lot. Although much more of this and I won’t be moving for a while.”

“Agreed. I haven’t been hit as much as you have sir, but what’s gotten through is going to hurt a lot later on.” Juliet said as she nodded, agreeing to my statement.
“Right, let’s get moving. Only a klick left now.” Meia said.

****

The next minute passed swiftly, with no further interruptions. My battered body protested as we flew along, at a much slower pace than what we were capable of. The roughly hour long exercise had depleted much of my energy. Judging from the others, they were pretty worn out as well.

The distance left to the EP ticked down quickly in flight, until the counter was no more.

Exercise completed at 1121.

“Next time we do this, find some easier opponents for us…I’m going to be sore for a week.” Juliet said as we made our way to the ground.

I chuckled, “No problem, I’m not that big a masochist that I want to suffer their attacks day in and out.”

“Sure you’re not.”


Just one more part to go now. It shouldn't take too long as well since there won't be any actions scenes to painstakingly construct.

Thoughts please, if you have any, even if just to say that is sucked and you have to learn to write :p

Writing it from Myr's point of view gave a unique view of the battle, though that did make it a shame that we didn't see some of the RF6 members getting beaten because of it.

True, which is why my OCs are still relatively unknowns. :uhoh:I'm a tad guilty of this myself, but I have written some stuff about them to show them off a bit.


I went "wtf?? :twitch:" :heh:Thanks but no thanks, I don't want to go GAR or crazy suddenly.Well guess you'll have to find some energy the old fashion way then.

Nawww I like this explosive and messy. :DHave you ever seen what a shotgun dose to a head? :eyebrow:

Well, it isn't that nobody else is selling. But the problem is this countries Telco lines are monopolized and controlled by a SINGLE organization. There isn't any competition at all. Wanna setup an ISP? Go through them, and because they don't own the lines and all they ISP ends up being more expensive overall and its no better either.Ahh state control even better!


Do those even exist? Oh wait...they do exist in "Zombie Loan". :rolleyes:They're becoming more and more common as someone finally figured out that an enemy that takes 10 minutes to shamble across the room to you isn't very scary. :p



Again, in World War 2, the M2 Browning .50cal could take out light armored vehicles. These vehicles were built with thicker armor than your typical drone (the Ball-type seems to have a bit more armor, but the Guntank-type doesn't seem too well-protected...). Now, if an Earth round that is 75 years old by the time of StrikerS can do that, then what more the modern rounds currently in use...Like the Raufoss Mk 211 Mod 0 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raufoss_Mk_211). High Explosive Incedniary/Armor Piercing. Or you could just use this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XM307_Advanced_Crew_Served_Weapon)... Real life heavy Bolters for the win! :D:p

One thing that has always bugged me is that the TSAB appears to be very heavily spilt, very much like the JSSDF. They don't do joint ops, and the idea of coordinating units from the different branches on an op doesn't seem to have occurred to them... one ficlet idea that I had was the OFM going through this excercise to prove the validity of the Marine Air Ground Task Force concept to O'Neill and the TSAB Brass, in hopes of getting Ground Forces, Navy and AF to work closer together.Such bickering is hardly uncommon though I know that the AIr Force has been talkign up retiuring A-10s and the army has basiclly said "we'll buy them ALL of them, straight up an d pay for them ourselves." and the Air Force threw a huge hissy fit about how the army wasn't allowed to have fixed wing aircraft they been whining about UAV's too and trying to get full control of them... probably so they can fuck them up because the Air Force is run by fighter jocks.

For all of the nightmares it gives me trying to figure out continuity, FMP is one helluva kickass ride... incidentally, I remember reading somewhere that Gatoh said that mecha are totally impractical and unfeasible as real-world weapons, but Black Technology allows Mithril to cheat and use them without regard for the laws of reality. :heh:And this is one of my favorite scenes throughout the series. ^_^
Pretty much he admitted they make no sense, so he invented science fictional technology to make them effective.

For some reason, I was always under the impression that the Enforcers were like Malaysian cops in the days of the Emergency; their primary focus is on investigation, but then they can deploy to bust heads when needed. Or, on the other hand, they could be the TSAB equivalent to SWAT, given their deployment into Precia's base in MSLN...It's really the same thing anyway as most SWAT officers function as normal police when not needed in the SWAT role.

Anyway, Liingo, I'll get to you on OFM/Enforcer interactions.... and perhaps TK as well?
I'm game just tell me what you need or want.

Thanks!:D
I'll look forward to your piece as well.:DYou shouldn't be it's sure to be ham fisted. :p:heh:


Sigh... -_-;

You all make it sound like he does that on a regular basis.:mad:
For the record, Hayate is the ONLY person to have been subjected to such a method.:heh:
For the others,

It's your own damn fault for writing it. :p

I don't see why the hell not, just because she's able to throw around lightning doesn't mean she's immume to it. :rolleyes:Seriously A flamethrower shots flames, dose that make it immune to a blow torch?




I'd recommend Phanan... but he's pretty screwed up himself.
Such people aren't normally great choices as therapists. :p


Only the Imperial Familly has pointy ears. And after reading two volumes I've yet to see an Abh actually look down on normals.
Frankly just looking their society should be a hint mostly the fact that anyone that's not Abh is automatically a second class citizen at best.




*blink* O-kay, when did that happen? I haven't read that part yet... Just look at the system the only way to move up into a position of any power is service to the state and citizenship as an Abh, but said citizen requires that your kids get Abh’fied. So basiclly in order to move out of the peasant serf class you have to abandoned your culture and arguably species and pledge loyalty to the Abh proper, basiclly it’s a eugenics/caste system for the sole purpose of assuring that Abh and ONLY Abh maintain any positions of power. That’s a caste system a pretty brutal and racist one at that. It also means that over time as more and more of the population dose this in order to gain in position humankind proper will probably begin to wane replaced by the Abh sub-species…




Rule, yes. But as said, Abh don't interfere with planetary rule after that leader is chosen. Chosen by the people of the planet I might add. Eh? Did we watch the same series? I’m pretty sure that the one planet we seem conquered just has some dude appointed, oh and then its heredity, fuck rule by merit! The people didn’t’ seem all that happy with this either given they you know EXILED the guy… from his own planet on pain of death. Also the entire thing is a joke they totally interfere with the place since they enforce all sorts of polices on them and the planets aren’t in any way free to disobey. They might not micro manage, but they’re sure as hell in control and interfering with the planets development according to there polices.


In my opinion Crest of the Stars follows the 40k principle of having no good guys. In this case the aliance of humans would be a lot like the Imperium of Men in terms of behaviour, while the Abh would be like the Tau (closest thing 40k has to 'good guys' anyway).
I’m not so sure… the author certainly seems to like them and doesn’t seem to be going out of his way to show them as morally ambiguous, but if you acutally look at how this society is built, well the facts speak for themselves IMO, and I've seen authors push from pretty damn reprehensible political ideals before...





Yeah, well, its nothing more then a thought bubbling in the back of my mind now. I can't seem to find a propper way to introduce her other then going 'I want a Unision Device' and give some lame-ass explanation.Hey everyone else has been doing it. :p UD for everyone! I have to admit it took ALLOT of effort not to make Cortana just an AI and not a UD on my part... :uhoh: I still kinda wanna do it though acutally. :heh:



Did they ever propperly explain that anyway?
Apparently if you don’t believe in it can’t affect you! Oh they tried to make it seem more dramatic but that’s what it boiled down too apparently they so fervently didn’t believe they projected some kind of “anti force field” or such shit, later on the writers realized this was sort of a pain in the ass in regards to having Jedi do cool shit so Jedi powers started to become more and more effective again.:rolleyes:

Good point, I had forgotten about those rocks. And tyes, those drones were nerfed pretty badly. In the first episodes, they were at least somewhat impressive.villain decay as I said it happens with any type of evil minion, it's just a fact of life. :p

You are simply a munchkin.:pMore or less. :p

Hmmmm.... still, that's only on the big Ball-type. The cannon fodder drones appear quite vulnerable to physical attacks... but I guess the Ball-types must be the "aces" of the Gadget Drones. K, then.

Though I note that if the Gadgets could not recognise rocks as a threat, then I believe they would not recognise HMG rounds as a threat...

And TK's right. Manga Drones were a lot more impressive. :uhoh:Stuff is always more powerful in print for whatever reason both Novels and manga tend to lean toward higher power levels.

You've got a good point here.... in the backstory, Kagerou had Lindy supporting the setting up of the OFM because of what she'd experienced in the War of Subjugation, when the Sotoans pretty much nuked their entire planet. But the assasinations...

*whips out M4R1 Retcon Carbine*

Okay, how about this senario? The OFM is established under the Navy, and is slotted and hidden away among the Enforcers, though they're really a more spec ops/wetwork unit. Lindy and Aurion back the OFM's formation, though Lindy is under the impression that the OFM will be a more covert form of Enforcer than normal Enforcers; "Special Forces" meaning different things to her and Erick.

O'Neill then finds out about this unit, and then has a brainstorm: instead of forming a new wetworks unit, since Erick is already a "Do what has to be done" guy, O'Neill posits an idea: the OFM will be a joint Air Force/Navy unit, and is in a way a testbed for the idea of TSAB AFSOC and NAVSPECWAR units. To that end, a few of the early Air mages are from the TSAB AF, handpicked by O'Neill, and the TSAB liason officer is also AF (Emili Nailo), while the Navy provides the ship (we're thinking something small, light, and long-ranged, maybe TSAB Navy's version of a DDG? Or an FFG?) and a fair number of the support personnel (investigation, intel, other support staff). So over the next 20-odd years, Lindy slowly gets further and further removed from the OFM's operational details, Leti continues to help keep them hidden, and O'Neill is the guy who's the ultimate command authority...

And perhaps in 30-odd years after StrikerS, there will be a TSAB SOCOM, built on the foundations of the OFM and AFSOC <.<
I was just using him as an example.:heh: At this rate O’Neil is going to be like an evil mastermind or something anything sketchy in the entire TSAB militray is going to be under his control. :eyespin: You're free to use him of course though more exposer is always better and the militant faction seems to be growing in numbers as well. :heh:

Sounds good to my ears... although I'd say that O'neill would be retiring long before that time's over... unless of course TK's version isn't the same age as the SG one...:heh:
Well He’s assumed to have made General a few years before StrikerS and his Bio was based on his status at the end of the Stargate series in which he was a rather highly placed general of the age of about 50 which would be his age at the beginning of StikerS. OFM forms before it begins IIRC so that works fine he’d already have been in a position to learn of and Hijack them.


Well, it depends on how old TKs O'Neill is... mind you, Graham retired when he was in his 70s. Assuming TK's O'Neill is in his 40s, thats 3 decades to work with... As for post StrikerS the military is basiclly his life though so he’s not going to retire until he’s not longer physically capable. On that note Nano joke or not it raises a good point Lindy ought to be into her 40s by now, but frankly she doesn’t look it at all and the idea that a TSAB humans average lifespan might be somewhat extended can’t be totally discounted IMO. In any case he probably has at least another 10 years in him post StrikerS, but as an officer not so much a field mage anymore he probably wouldn’t go out on missions anymore by about 5 years post StikerS I might make Guardians his last hooray as combat mage. (He shouldn’t really have been doing them at all once he got into the general ranks, but he’s still a soldier at the bottom of it all so he took any excuse he could find to take the field, or just made them up when he couldn’t find a good one.)

He’d be into his 80s by 30 years post StrikerS so that would be pushing it, but the idea that some of the stuff he set rolling before he retired might ultimately culminate in such an event isn’t impossible.

Good point :heh: Although I would still imagine that the TSAB assisted in her creation, thus they'd have at least a rough idea of how she's created. :heh:

And my AI's are device independent. They're designed to be able to operate in almost any storage device or empty Intelligent and Armed they can be transferred to. Only with my recent Zubaida Arc and Matsuri Miyama stories though are they physically independent from any devices :heh:
I would like to disagree on the point that they helped to create Rein. I mean, if they have a rough idea, why don't they get the entire process out from Hayate while they're helping her?

From what we know, Unison devices are intelligent devices taken to the extreme, But I don't think its so simple. The TSAB may have help Hayate to a point (basic construction of an A.I for example) but I think she has to do the rest herself to make that into a Unison device, Rein. Also if the TSAB has a rough idea, why hasn't Nanoha and Fate ask the TSAB and Hayate to convert Raising Heart and Bardiche to Unison devices. Why go for the more dangerous limit break modes than use an Unison device which helps boost power and a lot safer as well?

The answer I suspect is that Rein's creation is unique to Hayate, via the process similiar to that of the guardian knight system.

Assist, yes. But not to the point where they allow the user to use multiple ellements with little apparent effort. Up untill now all elemental spells have been either cast by someone with an affinity, cast by someone with both training and a device specialized in one element, or were ritual spells (In other words, chanted).

The only known exception to that rule would be Rein, which is a Unision Device and a rarety on her own.

Any opinion on a deviceless mage proficient with one affinity and ability in another with sufficient experience then?


You've just been on the sidelines of these H4XXbustings for too long and never really paid attention to them. :p

I'll be getting my turn soon when the time comes..

The benefits of UDs and the rest of the devices types were discussed some time back but a correction here. Unison does not give any power boost, merely helps the mage muti-task better on a much higher level. Agreed that Rein is unique in her origins though.

Oh lord not this again... :uhoh:

I doubt it'll be like last time. :p

Puuh, done!

AAS girly coming up!
So who ever is interested, here's Rinyas profile!


Thanks goes to PhoenixFlare for helping me with the gramma! :bow:




Name: Rinya Shuri A’Kalash
Alias: Rin
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Date of birth: March 8, MC 056
Family: Bedario Shuri A’Kalash (father), Lilira Shuri A’Kalash (mother), Rikko Shuri A’Kalash (brother)
Hair Colour: Light blue
Eye Colour: Orange

Affiliation: Time-Space Administration Bureau / Air Armament service / “Dragonfly” Squadron
Position: 2nd Lieutenant / Dragonfly 01
Wizard Ranking: AA
Magic System: Neo-Belka
Magic Colour: Green
Device: Windlanze (Armed / Spear)


Background:

Birth & Childhood:
Rinya was born on Vedir into the Shuri family of the A’Kalash tribe.
Vedir was a world covered with wide windy canyons; most of them so deep that the sunlight never reaches the bottom, thus making the Vedirians live on top of the many plateaus. It was through this planet surface that the Vedirian tribes developed a unique culture where aviation is the main way of movement and transport. So Rinya was born with the blood of aviators.

Ever since she could remember, she had always dreamt of flying. Her father, the owner and pilot of a small air-cargo freight business, trained her in flying cargo gliders so that she could later work with him and carry on the family business some day.

At the age of ten, she went to a TSAB flight show with her family. The first moment she saw the aerial mages, she knew that she wanted to fly like them in the sky, without a glider or plane.
Her father didn’t like her sudden decision and ordered her to stop the stupid thinking at once. Rinya of course, did not.

Since then, the tension within the family never vanished and at the age of twelve she left her home and joined the TSAB.

In service:
Influenced by the traditions of her home world, which reached back to ancient Belka, she chose the Belkan style of magic, even if it wasn't the best choice for someone who wanted to become an aerial mage. But, with passion and hardwork, she succeeded to enter aerial training.

While she was normally good at teamwork, the somewhat reckless nature of her attacks made it difficult for her to adapt to the ways the aerial mages fought, and she nearly dropped out of aerial training. To her luck, an instructor saw the potential of her being more of a melee attacker than a ranged combat mage. Rinya was given an instructor that taught her the fighting style of a Belka Ritter, and, considering the history of her homeworld, she was given her own Device that was created after a traditional Vedirian aerial melee weapon.

Thanks to this, Rinya was able to graduate from the training school as one of the top ranking students, as an A-ranked aerial mage.

Dragonfly:
After graduation, Rinya was assigned to the Air Armaments Service Squadron "Dragonfly", an experienced battle squadron that handled patrol and rescue missions.

Rinya's first big mission was when Dragonfly helped other units in the search for a Class-1 criminal that was detected in Central Midchilda.

Dragonfly found the fugitive, but, Rinya, who was the most inexperienced, was the first to be wounded in battle and was ordered to retreat at once. She later discovered that Dragonfly was totally wiped out.
Rinya wanted to return to battle immediately, but, for her condition, was ordered to stay behind. While she was being treated at the first-aid station, the criminal was captured.

Road to Officer:
As the only survivor of Dragonfly, Rinya was sent on leave and she visited her family on Vedir, but the still-existing tension between her and her father made her return to Midchilda quickly.
Back in service, she supported other aerial squadrons on different missions.

It was the JS incident that brought her to the attention of her superiors.
During the battle against the Saint's Cradle, Rinya was flying around the battlefield, supporting other units and engaging Drones in direct combat.
Through her bravery and quick-thinking on the field, she was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and was sent to an Officer's course, her official rank now determined as AA.

Personality:
Rinya is a bright and energetic person that some people would even call her reckless.
She can be very proud and stubborn sometimes, but this is only to hide her true feelings when she is insecure.
Rinya loves flying and is very glad she joined TSAB because of it. She still thinks very fondly of her old home, even though she is not on good terms with her father.
She also tries to see the good in people first.

Windlanze
Windlanze (Wind Lance) is a device crafted after a Vedirian wind-rider's lance.
In ancient Belka, these traditional weapons were used by Vedirian knights in aerial battles and air jousting.
Swung in fast flight, the lance could deal massive damage on impact to its target.
Windlanze is additionally equipped with a second form and a Belkan cartridge system.

Modes:
Klingenform (Blade Form):
Windlanze’s standard form is a short spear with a long blade.

Zwillingsklingenform (Twin Blade Form):
A second blade appears on the other side of the now-shortened hilt. This form is used when battling more opponents at once.



Defensive Spells:

Knight Armour:
Rinyas Knight Armour is a green and white bodysuit. Armour parts cover the upper torso, shoulders, forearms, knees and feet. The Knight Armour is designed to prefer mobility over protection.

Sturmschild (Storm Shield):
Shield spell in form of a triangle.

Windtanz (Wind Dance)
A spell that increases the casters speed and allows almost instantaneous movement.

Offensive Spells:

Luftmesser (Air Knife):
A spell that is using magic to compress and accelerate the air around the device. It enables the caster to create blades of wind and throw them at the target.

Windschnitter (Wind Reaper):
A more powerful version of Luftmesser.
This spell needs a cartridge to be activated.

Sturmangriff (Assault):
A spell that uses Windtanz as base.
Magical energy is infused into the blade of the device enhancing its ability to penetrate shields and armour. The caster is then boosted forward, allowing him a single strike with the enhanced blade.
This spell needs two cartridges to be activated.

Even though Vivio is apparently driving a wedge between NXF in the upcomming sound stage?

Having just Nanoha and Vivio conversing isn't driving a wedge into anything... =_=

...Except my overcooked brain at the moment.



The principle is the same, though.

You're just inflexible... >.>



Assist, yes. But not to the point where they allow the user to use multiple ellements with little apparent effort. Up untill now all elemental spells have been either cast by someone with an affinity, cast by someone with both training and a device specialized in one element, or were ritual spells (In other words, chanted).

The only known exception to that rule would be Rein, which is a Unision Device and a rarety on her own.

It's h4xx because it can convert mana into any ellement. Even Durandal was build to assist the mage into converting and it was speciallized to ice

...
...
...

WHY KEROKO WHY?! WHY DO YOU HATE ME :upset:?! IS IT BECAUSE I'M A GUY?! CAN YOU NOT ACCEPT ME FOR WHO I AM?! CAN YOU NOT UNDERSTAND MY FEELINGS :frustrated: ?!? NO WAIT, IT'S BECAUSE I'M YELLOW, ISN'T IT :mad: !!!


...Because I've clearly said several times that Jeno.

1. Has two devices.

...But let me release the fat cat now.

2. Executioner has a completely white blade with a black handle, while Exorcist is a black blade with a white handle.

3. The non-active form of both swords in the sheath for the other half. That's how he could carry two of them at once. With one active and one inactive

4. Executioner, the one he uses most of the time, converts to electricity. Exorcist, converts to fire.



If channeling only one of the spells in that list, a minute or 5 would be the edge. And it depends on the spell in question, too.

I assume that 'list', is only for the bigger spells right?



You've just been on the sidelines of these H4XXbustings for too long and never really paid attention to them. :p

No no, I mean I really need my drugs... Fever's going off the roof.



Ritual spells are spells with a chant to go along with them, not just charge time.


That's why I said you're so inflexible -_-

When you break it down, the most basic and necessary balance for all one-turn-:rolleyes:, I mean nukes, is that they all require long casting time. Is it really an enormous different between Standing still and mumbling a few words, and standing still silently as long as that exceptable time length is meant?

That said though, Rip.Steel.Soul. does have a chant to be cast, which is different from all/most field type spells.

Writing it from Myr's point of view gave a unique view of the battle, though that did make it a shame that we didn't see some of the RF6 members getting beaten because of it.
:heh: Yeah, can't do much about that when you're writing in first person. Once the next part is done, I'll be swithing over to 3rd person for most of my fics, but I started this in 1st and am going to finish it in first. If I ever feel like doing something random later on, I might go back and write those scenes in the perspective of some of the other particpants, but don't hold your breath waiting :p It'll be a while if I do.

Hey everyone else has been doing it. :p UD for everyone! I have to admit it took ALLOT of effort not to make Cortana just an AI and not a UD on my part... :uhoh: I still kinda wanna do it though acutally. :heh:

Well it's nice to know that you're human and not just haxx buster incarnate :p

Well He’s assumed to have made General a few years before StrikerS and his Bio was based on his status at the end of the Stargate series in which he was a rather highly placed general of the age of about 50 which would be his age at the beginning of StikerS. OFM forms before it begins IIRC so that works fine he’d already have been in a position to learn of and Hijack them.

In any case he probably has at least another 10 years in him post StrikerS, but as an officer not so much a field mage anymore he probably wouldn’t go out on missions anymore by about 5 years post StikerS I might make Guardians his last hooray as combat mage. (He shouldn’t really have been doing them at all once he got into the general ranks, but he’s still a soldier at the bottom of it all so he took any excuse he could find to take the field, or just made them up when he couldn’t find a good one.)

He’d be into his 80s by 30 years post StrikerS so that would be pushing it, but the idea that some of the stuff he set rolling before he retired might ultimately culminate in such an event isn’t impossible.
Wait what..... Geez, I'm surprised that they didn't try to lock him up to make sure that didn't happen.... Although chnaces are he'd just break out again to save your ass if you did that...:uhoh:

I see, that makes sense on the other things :D

On an unrelated point, what would the rank of 28 year old be? Assuming no rapid promotions due to heroic duites and such, and having been in the military since he could be. Captain/ Major? Just trying to see if the rank that I've given my OC's are correct.
Oh lord not this again... :uhoh:
:heh: I remember this diccussion

@KYRAL
Very nice :D Did you make those pictures yourself?
Horray for an OC that for once isn't from earth :D :D

Spells seem good. Nice job overall! :D

And with that I'll be heading to sleep. Night all.

So who ever is interested, here's Rinyas profile!


Thanks goes to PhoenixFlare for helping me with the gramma! :bow:




Name: Rinya Shuri A’Kalash
Alias: Rin
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Date of birth: March 8, MC 056
Family: Bedario Shuri A’Kalash (father), Lilira Shuri A’Kalash (mother), Rikko Shuri A’Kalash (brother)
Hair Colour: Light blue
Eye Colour: Orange

Affiliation: Time-Space Administration Bureau / Air Armament service / “Dragonfly” Squadron
Position: 2nd Lieutenant / Dragonfly 01
Wizard Ranking: AA
Magic System: Neo-Belka
Magic Colour: Green
Device: Windlanze (Armed / Spear)


Background:

Birth & Childhood:
Rinya was born on Vedir into the Shuri family of the A’Kalash tribe.
Vedir was a world covered with wide windy canyons; most of them so deep that the sunlight never reaches the bottom, thus making the Vedirians live on top of the many plateaus. It was through this planet surface that the Vedirian tribes developed a unique culture where aviation is the main way of movement and transport. So Rinya was born with the blood of aviators.

Ever since she could remember, she had always dreamt of flying. Her father, the owner and pilot of a small air-cargo freight business, trained her in flying cargo gliders so that she could later work with him and carry on the family business some day.

At the age of ten, she went to a TSAB flight show with her family. The first moment she saw the aerial mages, she knew that she wanted to fly like them in the sky, without a glider or plane.
Her father didn’t like her sudden decision and ordered her to stop the stupid thinking at once. Rinya of course, did not.

Since then, the tension within the family never vanished and at the age of twelve she left her home and joined the TSAB.

In service:
Influenced by the traditions of her home world, which reached back to ancient Belka, she chose the Belkan style of magic, even if it wasn't the best choice for someone who wanted to become an aerial mage. But, with passion and hardwork, she succeeded to enter aerial training.

While she was normally good at teamwork, the somewhat reckless nature of her attacks made it difficult for her to adapt to the ways the aerial mages fought, and she nearly dropped out of aerial training. To her luck, an instructor saw the potential of her being more of a melee attacker than a ranged combat mage. Rinya was given an instructor that taught her the fighting style of a Belka Ritter, and, considering the history of her homeworld, she was given her own Device that was created after a traditional Vedirian aerial melee weapon.

Thanks to this, Rinya was able to graduate from the training school as one of the top ranking students, as an A-ranked aerial mage.

Dragonfly:
After graduation, Rinya was assigned to the Air Armaments Service Squadron "Dragonfly", an experienced battle squadron that handled patrol and rescue missions.

Rinya's first big mission was when Dragonfly helped other units in the search for a Class-1 criminal that was detected in Central Midchilda.

Dragonfly found the fugitive, but, Rinya, who was the most inexperienced, was the first to be wounded in battle and was ordered to retreat at once. She later discovered that Dragonfly was totally wiped out.
Rinya wanted to return to battle immediately, but, for her condition, was ordered to stay behind. While she was being treated at the first-aid station, the criminal was captured.

Road to Officer:
As the only survivor of Dragonfly, Rinya was sent on leave and she visited her family on Vedir, but the still-existing tension between her and her father made her return to Midchilda quickly.
Back in service, she supported other aerial squadrons on different missions.

It was the JS incident that brought her to the attention of her superiors.
During the battle against the Saint's Cradle, Rinya was flying around the battlefield, supporting other units and engaging Drones in direct combat.
Through her bravery and quick-thinking on the field, she was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and was sent to an Officer's course, her official rank now determined as AA.

Personality:
Rinya is a bright and energetic person that some people would even call her reckless.
She can be very proud and stubborn sometimes, but this is only to hide her true feelings when she is insecure.
Rinya loves flying and is very glad she joined TSAB because of it. She still thinks very fondly of her old home, even though she is not on good terms with her father.
She also tries to see the good in people first.

Windlanze
Windlanze (Wind Lance) is a device crafted after a Vedirian wind-rider's lance.
In ancient Belka, these traditional weapons were used by Vedirian knights in aerial battles and air jousting.
Swung in fast flight, the lance could deal massive damage on impact to its target.
Windlanze is additionally equipped with a second form and a Belkan cartridge system.

Modes:
Klingenform (Blade Form):
Windlanze’s standard form is a short spear with a long blade.

Zwillingsklingenform (Twin Blade Form):
A second blade appears on the other side of the now-shortened hilt. This form is used when battling more opponents at once.



Defensive Spells:

Knight Armour:
Rinyas Knight Armour is a green and white bodysuit. Armour parts cover the upper torso, shoulders, forearms, knees and feet. The Knight Armour is designed to prefer mobility over protection.

Sturmschild (Storm Shield):
Shield spell in form of a triangle.

Windtanz (Wind Dance)
A spell that increases the casters speed and allows almost instantaneous movement.

Offensive Spells:

Luftmesser (Air Knife):
A spell that is using magic to compress and accelerate the air around the device. It enables the caster to create blades of wind and throw them at the target.

Windschnitter (Wind Cutter):
A more powerful version of Luftmesser.
This spell needs a cartridge to be activated.

Sturmangriff (Assault):
A spell that uses Windtanz as base.
Magical energy is infused into the blade of the device enhancing its ability to penetrate shields and armour. The caster is then boosted forward, allowing him a single strike with the enhanced blade.
This spell needs two cartridges to be activated.

Nicely done overall and your shop skills are awesome. Have fun with her then. :D



...Because I've clearly said several times that Jeno.

1. Has two devices.

...But let me release the fat cat now.

2. Executioner has a completely white blade with a black handle, while Exorcist is a black blade with a white handle.

3. The non-active form of both swords in the sheath for the other half. That's how he could carry two of them at once. With one active and one inactive

4. Executioner, the one he uses most of the time, converts to electricity. Exorcist, converts to fire.

And the impression would have been held that he dual wields two devices at one go until you clarified this though I do remember Jeno only using one in his intro. It's better to put such info out in the open first to avoid misunderstandings.


I assume that 'list', is only for the bigger spells right?

5mins for any offensive spell is very long even considering a large mana pool, much less the more taxing buster and bombardment spells of the bigger list.


When you break it down, the most basic and necessary balance for all one-turn-:rolleyes:, I mean nukes, is that they all require long casting time. Is it really an enormous different between Standing still and mumbling a few words, and standing still silently as long as that exceptable time length is meant?

That said though, Rip.Steel.Soul. does have a chant to be cast, which is different from all/most field type spells.

Field much like the ygo concept though I would think this falls under the area of special kinds of barriers.


Having just Nanoha and Vivio conversing isn't driving a wedge into anything... =_=

...Except my overcooked brain at the moment.


No no, I mean I really need my drugs... Fever's going off the roof.

Get to bed then! :mad:

Just popping in to comment while I prepare my next OC for presentation:

I would like to disagree on the point that they helped to create Rein. I mean, if they have a rough idea, why don't they get the entire process out from Hayate while they're helping her?

From what we know, Unison devices are intelligent devices taken to the extreme, But I don't think its so simple. The TSAB may have help Hayate to a point (basic construction of an A.I for example) but I think she has to do the rest herself to make that into a Unison device, Rein. Also if the TSAB has a rough idea, why hasn't Nanoha and Fate ask the TSAB and Hayate to convert Raising Heart and Bardiche to Unison devices. Why go for the more dangerous limit break modes than use an Unison device which helps boost power and a lot safer as well?

The answer I suspect is that Rein's creation is unique to Hayate, via the process similiar to that of the guardian knight system.

My take is that the original design plans for the Tome's Administrative Program may have been preserved in the Tome's archives itself.

The problem is this. If Rein II is an actual device like RH (meaning her real body is actually that fragment that fell from the sky after Rein I's demise), I doubt Hayate could reconstruct her without technical help from the TSAB. In this case, if Hayate can retrieve the design plans, the TSAB will be able to rebuilt something that's similar to the original one.

However, if Rein is actually a program that is pretty much an extension of the Tome like what the Wolkenritter were in the past, I believe creating her shouldn't be too hard for Hayate, provided she has the know-how (magical construct programming?).

Either way, I believe research data and designs of UDs can be found in the Infinite Library, like almost everything else. Reason why people hasn't been touching them can be due to the fact that UDs are too dangerous for just anyone. The Tome passed through the hands of heaven-knows how many meisters after its corruption and everyone, almost including Hayate, were overwhelmed and suffered the price. Let's not forget that the chances of UDs overwhelming the magus is much higher compared to their ID cousins. Indeed, the benefits of a successful Meister-UD relationship are greater than those of a Magus-ID, but the dangers due to incompatibility issues are also much greater too. In fact, it is because the dangers outweigh the benefits that UDs were eventually given up on.

Now, let's put the heavy arguments aside and....

That's why I said you're so inflexible -_-

If Rein II is an actual device like RH (meaning her real body is actually that fragment that fell from the sky after Rein I's demise),

Indications are that Rein2's body is as "real" as the Knights'. However it is not the fragment left behind after Rein I's demise. That became Schwekertkreuz, Hayate's staff.

Reason why people hasn't been touching them can be due to the fact that UDs are too dangerous for just anyone.

Not to mention, for perfect compatibility, it seems the user needs to donate part of her Linker Core to the UD.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Hayate already have Schwekertkreuz before she even got the fragment? I'm certain I saw Hayate use it when they were owning the corrupted defense program.

BTW jimmy, where did you derive that part about linker core donation? I don't think it was even remotely hinted anywhere.

The two staffs are the same in naming. And to lend weight to Estavali's theory, Rein Eins managed to pass on a message to Rein Zwei in the form of a dream in SS03, indicating that not everything was completely deleted asides from the spells the original tome had.

Seriously A flamethrower shots flames, dose that make it immune to a blow torch?

Exactly. I mean, just why the hell would fate become immume to lightning type spells just because she can cast them more easilly? :eyespin:

Such people aren't normally great choices as therapists. :p

'Doctor, I have a great and terrible emotional wound, its keeping me up at night, what should I do?'

'Start drinking, and don't stop untill things get better. Or black.'

Frankly just looking their society should be a hint mostly the fact that anyone that's not Abh is automatically a second class citizen at best.

Just look at the system the only way to move up into a position of any power is service to the state and citizenship as an Abh, but said citizen requires that your kids get Abh’fied. So basiclly in order to move out of the peasant serf class you have to abandoned your culture and arguably species and pledge loyalty to the Abh proper, basiclly it’s a eugenics/caste system for the sole purpose of assuring that Abh and ONLY Abh maintain any positions of power. That’s a caste system a pretty brutal and racist one at that. It also means that over time as more and more of the population dose this in order to gain in position humankind proper will probably begin to wane replaced by the Abh sub-species…

Eh? Did we watch the same series? I’m pretty sure that the one planet we seem conquered just has some dude appointed, oh and then its heredity, fuck rule by merit! The people didn’t’ seem all that happy with this either given they you know EXILED the guy… from his own planet on pain of death. Also the entire thing is a joke they totally interfere with the place since they enforce all sorts of polices on them and the planets aren’t in any way free to disobey. They might not micro manage, but they’re sure as hell in control and interfering with the planets development according to there polices.

I’m not so sure… the author certainly seems to like them and doesn’t seem to be going out of his way to show them as morally ambiguous, but if you acutally look at how this society is built, well the facts speak for themselves IMO, and I've seen authors push from pretty damn reprehensible political ideals before...

Hmm, apparently the series and the manga have vast differences. I have never watched the series beyond the first episode, as I tired of the wussy Jinto within five minutes, only barely managing to watch to the end. The manga version at least has enough guts to wing it.

Plus, Manga Lafiel (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y191/Liinna/SeikaiTrilogyv01-CrestoftheStars238.jpg) >>>>>>>>>>>> Anime Lafiel (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y191/Liinna/lafielt.jpg).

In the manga, the Abh don't interfere with on-wordly politics aside from making them part of the Empire and regulating space travel (this is even commented on), Also, the representatives or lords of such planets are chosen by the people.

Then again, I still have to read the third part, which may cast some shadows on the Abh.

Hey everyone else has been doing it. :p UD for everyone! I have to admit it took ALLOT of effort not to make Cortana just an AI and not a UD on my part... :uhoh: I still kinda wanna do it though acutally. :heh:

So do I, but for me its a tad more complicated. Its impossible for Keroko to even unision to begin with, concidering the state of her Linker Core. It would completely destroy any UD trying to Unision with her.

That leaves Tesla...

Who is Belkan...

Ancient Belkan at that...

...

...

GAH! Windows! Windows! Must open windows!

Apparently if you don’t believe in it can’t affect you! Oh they tried to make it seem more dramatic but that’s what it boiled down too apparently they so fervently didn’t believe they projected some kind of “anti force field” or such shit, later on the writers realized this was sort of a pain in the ass in regards to having Jedi do cool shit so Jedi powers started to become more and more effective again.:rolleyes:

Wait wait wait, that was their explanation? That's like saying 'I don't believe in the flu, so I don't get the flu.' You can't be unnafected by something that's pretty much a part of fucking life. Not to mention there are bilions in the Star Wars universe itself that don't believe in the Force.

Yees, minus yet more points for NJO.

Having just Nanoha and Vivio conversing isn't driving a wedge into anything... =_=

...Except my overcooked brain at the moment.

No Fate. That alone will make the Legion go bananas.

You're just inflexible... >.>

Says the one defending obvious H4XX.

...
...
...

WHY KEROKO WHY?! WHY DO YOU HATE ME :upset:?! IS IT BECAUSE I'M A GUY?! CAN YOU NOT ACCEPT ME FOR WHO I AM?! CAN YOU NOT UNDERSTAND MY FEELINGS :frustrated: ?!? NO WAIT, IT'S BECAUSE I'M YELLOW, ISN'T IT :mad: !!!

Well, yes, you are yellow. But that has nothing to do with this.

...Because I've clearly said several times that Jeno.

1. Has two devices.

...But let me release the fat cat now.

2. Executioner has a completely white blade with a black handle, while Exorcist is a black blade with a white handle.

4. Executioner, the one he uses most of the time, converts to electricity. Exorcist, converts to fire.

Huh, I thought that was different forms for the same device.

I assume that 'list', is only for the bigger spells right?

Actually, five minutes was more for the 'standard' ones. Big spells equall big drain. Channeling those types would be bellow five minutes.

No no, I mean I really need my drugs... Fever's going off the roof.

Te.. Then what the hell are you doing arguing here? Shoo, shoo, off to bed. We can always finish this later.

When you break it down, the most basic and necessary balance for all one-turn-:rolleyes:, I mean nukes, is that they all require long casting time.

That said though, Rip.Steel.Soul. does have a chant to be cast, which is different from all/most field type spells.

Magical nukes, no, but like I said elemental spells have -without a conversion abillity- always been chanted.

Any opinion on a deviceless mage proficient with one affinity and ability in another with sufficient experience then?

Casting normal magic and magic of his affinity would give little problems, magic of other elements would be seriously harder, and without a device to aid him loooong.

Puuh, done!

AAS girly coming up!
So who ever is interested, here's Rinyas profile!


Thanks goes to PhoenixFlare for helping me with the gramma! :bow:




Name: Rinya Shuri A’Kalash
Alias: Rin
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Date of birth: March 8, MC 056
Family: Bedario Shuri A’Kalash (father), Lilira Shuri A’Kalash (mother), Rikko Shuri A’Kalash (brother)
Hair Colour: Light blue
Eye Colour: Orange

Affiliation: Time-Space Administration Bureau / Air Armament service / “Dragonfly” Squadron
Position: 2nd Lieutenant / Dragonfly 01
Wizard Ranking: AA
Magic System: Neo-Belka
Magic Colour: Green
Device: Windlanze (Armed / Spear)


Background:

Birth & Childhood:
Rinya was born on Vedir into the Shuri family of the A’Kalash tribe.
Vedir was a world covered with wide windy canyons; most of them so deep that the sunlight never reaches the bottom, thus making the Vedirians live on top of the many plateaus. It was through this planet surface that the Vedirian tribes developed a unique culture where aviation is the main way of movement and transport. So Rinya was born with the blood of aviators.

Ever since she could remember, she had always dreamt of flying. Her father, the owner and pilot of a small air-cargo freight business, trained her in flying cargo gliders so that she could later work with him and carry on the family business some day.

At the age of ten, she went to a TSAB flight show with her family. The first moment she saw the aerial mages, she knew that she wanted to fly like them in the sky, without a glider or plane.
Her father didn’t like her sudden decision and ordered her to stop the stupid thinking at once. Rinya of course, did not.

Since then, the tension within the family never vanished and at the age of twelve she left her home and joined the TSAB.

In service:
Influenced by the traditions of her home world, which reached back to ancient Belka, she chose the Belkan style of magic, even if it wasn't the best choice for someone who wanted to become an aerial mage. But, with passion and hardwork, she succeeded to enter aerial training.

While she was normally good at teamwork, the somewhat reckless nature of her attacks made it difficult for her to adapt to the ways the aerial mages fought, and she nearly dropped out of aerial training. To her luck, an instructor saw the potential of her being more of a melee attacker than a ranged combat mage. Rinya was given an instructor that taught her the fighting style of a Belka Ritter, and, considering the history of her homeworld, she was given her own Device that was created after a traditional Vedirian aerial melee weapon.

Thanks to this, Rinya was able to graduate from the training school as one of the top ranking students, as an A-ranked aerial mage.

Dragonfly:
After graduation, Rinya was assigned to the Air Armaments Service Squadron "Dragonfly", an experienced battle squadron that handled patrol and rescue missions.

Rinya's first big mission was when Dragonfly helped other units in the search for a Class-1 criminal that was detected in Central Midchilda.

Dragonfly found the fugitive, but, Rinya, who was the most inexperienced, was the first to be wounded in battle and was ordered to retreat at once. She later discovered that Dragonfly was totally wiped out.
Rinya wanted to return to battle immediately, but, for her condition, was ordered to stay behind. While she was being treated at the first-aid station, the criminal was captured.

Road to Officer:
As the only survivor of Dragonfly, Rinya was sent on leave and she visited her family on Vedir, but the still-existing tension between her and her father made her return to Midchilda quickly.
Back in service, she supported other aerial squadrons on different missions.

It was the JS incident that brought her to the attention of her superiors.
During the battle against the Saint's Cradle, Rinya was flying around the battlefield, supporting other units and engaging Drones in direct combat.
Through her bravery and quick-thinking on the field, she was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and was sent to an Officer's course, her official rank now determined as AA.

Personality:
Rinya is a bright and energetic person that some people would even call her reckless.
She can be very proud and stubborn sometimes, but this is only to hide her true feelings when she is insecure.
Rinya loves flying and is very glad she joined TSAB because of it. She still thinks very fondly of her old home, even though she is not on good terms with her father.
She also tries to see the good in people first.

Windlanze
Windlanze (Wind Lance) is a device crafted after a Vedirian wind-rider's lance.
In ancient Belka, these traditional weapons were used by Vedirian knights in aerial battles and air jousting.
Swung in fast flight, the lance could deal massive damage on impact to its target.
Windlanze is additionally equipped with a second form and a Belkan cartridge system.

Modes:
Klingenform (Blade Form):
Windlanze’s standard form is a short spear with a long blade.

Zwillingsklingenform (Twin Blade Form):
A second blade appears on the other side of the now-shortened hilt. This form is used when battling more opponents at once.



Defensive Spells:

Knight Armour:
Rinyas Knight Armour is a green and white bodysuit. Armour parts cover the upper torso, shoulders, forearms, knees and feet. The Knight Armour is designed to prefer mobility over protection.

Sturmschild (Storm Shield):
Shield spell in form of a triangle.

Windtanz (Wind Dance)
A spell that increases the casters speed and allows almost instantaneous movement.

Offensive Spells:

Luftmesser (Air Knife):
A spell that is using magic to compress and accelerate the air around the device. It enables the caster to create blades of wind and throw them at the target.

Windschnitter (Wind Cutter):
A more powerful version of Luftmesser.
This spell needs a cartridge to be activated.

Sturmangriff (Assault):
A spell that uses Windtanz as base.
Magical energy is infused into the blade of the device enhancing its ability to penetrate shields and armour. The caster is then boosted forward, allowing him a single strike with the enhanced blade.
This spell needs two cartridges to be activated.

Nice art. Especially her device. She's stubburn, reckless, loves flying... Oh yeah, she would get along with Keroko juuust fine. :D

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Hayate already have Schwekertkreuz before she even got the fragment? I'm certain I saw Hayate use it when they were owning the corrupted defense program.

You mean when she was Unisioned with Reinforce I, being pretty much über in every aspect? Sure, she already has Schwertkruez, because Reinforce I gave it to her. It was lost when Reinforce kicked the bucket, and the fragment that fell into Hayate's hand became Schwertkruez.

Tormenk
2007-11-18, 11:08
So do I, but for me its a tad more complicated. Its impossible for Keroko to even unision to begin with, concidering the state of her Linker Core. It would completely destroy any UD trying to Unision with her.

That leaves Tesla...

Who is Belkan...

Ancient Belkan at that...

...

...

GAH! Windows! Windows! Must open windows!

Considered the idea of just having Rein unison with Tesla? :heh:


No Fate. That alone will make the Legion go bananas.

Next best thing is to have Yuuno in on it as well. :D

Oh well I can dream.. >_>


Actually, five minutes was more for the 'standard' ones. Big spells equall big drain. Channeling those types would be bellow five minutes.

Actually a common idea is that doing all that is easy. Well easy for those of that level but difficult for those below and the strain of simply continually feeding magic into a spell and device is pretty taxing to exhaust pretty fast IMO.


Magical nukes, no, but like I said elemental spells have -without a conversion abillity- always been chanted.

Chrono with Eternal Coffin. Wish there were more examples though.


Casting normal magic and magic of his affinity would give little problems, magic of other elements would be seriously harder, and without a device to aid him loooong.

Another roadblock to smash then. How would 3 centuries of practice and experience do?

Oh, thats pretty much a given. Now I'm turning on the fan to blow away the crack of giving Tesla a UD a-la Signum and Agito.

Selkirk's joke was also amusing. If only...

I'm not sure I understand what you mean... all that is easy?

Chrono with Eternal Coffin. Wish there were more examples though.

Nope, Eternal Coffin was ritual as well. Chrono does a chant, albeit a short one, before launching the attack.

According to Triad: "Permafrost, construct a frozen coffin and deliver eternal sleep unto this beast."

Though I myself would rather translate permafrost to something more fantasyish, like 'lasting frost' or 'eternal frost'

Another roadblock to smash then. How would 3 centuries of practice and experience do?

That would make me wonder where he/she would get said 3 centuries. :p

'Doctor, I have a great and terrible emotional wound, its keeping me up at night, what should I do?'

'Start drinking, and don't stop untill things get better. Or black.'
What he dosen't even prescribe large doses of tranquillizers? he sucks! :mad::p


Hmm, apparently the series and the manga have vast differences. I have never watched the series beyond the first episode, as I tired of the wussy Jinto within five minutes, only barely managing to watch to the end. The manga version at least has enough guts to wing it.

Plus, Manga Lafiel (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y191/Liinna/SeikaiTrilogyv01-CrestoftheStars238.jpg) >>>>>>>>>>>> Anime Lafiel (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y191/Liinna/lafielt.jpg).

In the manga, the Abh don't interfere with on-wordly politics aside from making them part of the Empire and regulating space travel (this is even commented on), Also, the representatives or lords of such planets are chosen by the people.

Then again, I still have to read the third part, which may cast some shadows on the Abh.
The first series is really just an intro nothing important happens until the second and in that one Jinto dosen't really come off as wussy to me at all.


Wait wait wait, that was their explanation? That's like saying 'I don't believe in the flu, so I don't get the flu.' You can't be unnafected by something that's pretty much a part of fucking life. Not to mention there are bilions in the Star Wars universe itself that don't believe in the Force.

Yees, minus yet more points for NJO.
Acutally I maybe didn’t say it quite right really because I’m getting really tired anyway it was sorta complicated but apparently their homeworld (which was alive more stupidity). “stripped” them of the force… so they genuinely couldn’t feel and so didn’t believe in it at all and where sort of like “blanks” almost like a 40k Pariah. Now how exactly this “stripping” would make them immune to other people tossing them around like rag dolls… well it just dose for some reason.


Th-that's a little harsh...:heh:

<looks at a sobbing Sharazad>

:heh::heh::heh:The truth hurts she'd probably have a better chance of taking Hayate with her fists IMO. :p


GASP!:upset:
You're going to have a problem...:uhoh:

Namely...

<drum rolls>

Magic damage...:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:Acutally the the fact she'll probably be burned to ashes by long range bombardment spells might be a bigger problem.



It just comes with the circumstances...:heh:No it just sucks, come on when you think "lethal" you think fire, electricity, poison, etc you don't "water". :p Under some VERY limited circumstances it might be sorta useful, but almost never offensively.


Me: You're being a softie again, Hayate?!:mad:
Hayate: Uuu~...:upset:We need to get this girl some killing intent... :mad:


No, Sharazad couldn't defend against area-type magic. >.> In fact, none of the Templars can. But, I don't see why Hayate would want to Hraesvelgr just one person. Against a battalion of Heralds, maybe. :heh: *Pauses from pummeling unprotected infantry with 105mm howitzer and Looks at PF funny for a few seconds* :eyebrow:

There's no such thing as overkill.



Unison will be in, of course. :D

But, yeah, it's unlikely that she's going to freeze water coming atop her (that's just like dropping an avalanche on your head :p). The waves come from the front.She could just blast it before gets above her or even freeze everything around her to make an "ice damn".



Possibly the first, but as mentioned, summoning that much water would be excessively straining for Sharazad and Hayate to defend. :uhoh:Just killing the person controlling it would be quicker and easy since she'd be focused on controlling the water.

Sharazad: Haha I'm sending a tidal wave toward that orphanage now what will you do! :mad:
Hayate: Well since you're using all your power to direct said wave and have none to spare for defense I was thinking this. *magic circles appeared all around her*
Sharazad: Oh shi--
*Hræsvelgr >>>>>>>>>>'s Sharazad and the wave dies away*
:p


:uhoh:

Sharazad, don't listen to him!
No listen well, you're weak and useless why don't you just give up now and save yourself some pain you glorified super soaker. :p


I am adamant that water isn't weak! :mad:

Well, that depends. :p I'll try to think of a way to make it possible to use water. Something must be doable here ...A quick unconditional surrender seems workable. :p

Actually, I meant blasting a volume of water equal to the entire Falls, and it's not going to be widespread. It's going to be just a column of that much water in a linear line. And accelerated, too. >.>Then we're back to it be being easy to deflect since all the water can't hit at once and a continous blast of a fairly vicious liquid is just not going to do serious damage to a freaking energy sheild that could likely shrug off bomb blasts. :p Seriously I'm sorry, but trying to kill someone with water beams and crap is just making me giggle I can't take seriously.


Hayate Exploit #1: She's soft once she understands what the Templars are doing. :p

And while Sharazad's power revolves around water mostly, she is able to use other forms of attack, like wind and earth. But, her preference still remains with the ocean.Then she should just start chucking rocks she'd probably do more damage. :p

Oh, thats pretty much a given. Now I'm turning on the fan to blow away the crack of giving Tesla a UD a-la Signum and Agito.

For some reason the UD fever's pretty hot all of a sudden.I'm affected too. >_>


Selkirk's joke was also amusing. If only...

Fate's male? D;


I'm not sure I understand what you mean... all that is easy?

Spamming spells for extended periods of time beyond the first cast which would be continual pull of mana from the LC. Like a device continually spewing fire for 5mins for example.


Nope, Eternal Coffin was ritual as well. Chrono does a chant, albeit a short one, before launching the attack.

Oh my bad. Any examples of elemental spells being chanted then?


That would make me wonder where he/she would get said 3 centuries. :p

Her background's still very messy now for a supposedly normal human. Which makes me all the more to dump it in favor of making a UD to explain the seemingly longevity and ageless effect. >_>



We need to get this girl some killing intent... :mad:

Threaten to brutalize her family and friends. Much easier said than done of course. :p

Invasion of the UD's anyone?

Fate's male? D;

Exactly. :D

Spamming spells for extended periods of time beyond the first cast which would be continual pull of mana from the LC. Like a device continually spewing fire for 5mins for example.

Yeah, thats what I had in mind too. Looking at hayate for example, despite her being specialized in nukes and her huge mana pool, spaming Hraesvelgr was very taxing.

Oh my bad. Any examples of elemental spells being chanted then?

Fate did so in the manga, and if I recall once in the anime too. Chrono's Eternal Coffin in A's, Hayate's mistelstein, which is a petrification spell, and her Atem des Eises, which is an ice spell.

Its also worthy to note that Unision Devices apparently aren't limited by this. Rein cast an ice spell to capture Lutecia -without ritual-, and also aided Signum by charging her sword with fire. Agito used both flame and wind magic.

A few choice comments on Rein started it for me. :p


Yeah, thats what I had in mind too. Looking at hayate for example, despite her being specialized in nukes and her huge mana pool, spaming Hraesvelgr was very taxing.

Considering the output of each wave, no doubt lesser mages would have collapsed earlier, much less continued until possibly the 10th wave and still have juice for Diabolic Emission later like Hayate did.

I was thinking it has more to do with her style rather than elemental in Hayate's case. Rein helping Signum with her sword could be explained as Signum's own ability, just that Rein managed to boost it to a higher level of control than normal. Agito is a fine example though.

And that's another tempting bait to take up the UD offer since UDs have that excuse of dual elements. :eyespin:

Phanan: Tranquillizers don't taste as good. If your head hurts when you wake up, grab the next bottle.

The first series is really just an intro nothing important happens until the second and in that one Jinto dosen't really come off as wussy to me at all.

That might encourage me to watch again. Really, the first episode added a crapload of completely unecisary stuff. The entire first episode was 'poor Jinto' this and 'poor Jinto' that. Hell, even the goodbye from his friend was not nearly as dramatic in the manga, it was actually a happy goodbye.

Acutally I maybe didn’t say it quite right really because I’m getting really tired anyway it was sorta complicated but apparently their homeworld (which was alive more stupidity). “stripped” them of the force… so they genuinely couldn’t feel and so didn’t believe in it at all and where sort of like “blanks” almost like a 40k Pariah.

*momentarilly stops trying to cause a nuclear winter on a last remaining group of infantry*

She could just blast it before gets above her or even freeze everything around her to make an "ice damn".

Why not freeze the water while she's at it?

Noted.

Here's the next installation. Still can't find a decent name for it. Maybe I'll call it infestation or something. I suck at names.
"For the last time, I was in the bushes taking a pi- err... relieving myself. When I got back to where I left her, she was gone."

"How about the second missing person, a Mr Jack Stuward? Do you know what happened to him Mr Tylor?"

"Look Lady errr... What's your name again?"

"Nakajima. Ginga Nakajima."

"Right... Look, like I told the other guy, I don't know any Jack Stuward. I have not heard of this Jack Stuward person. Not until you guys told me the second missing person is called Jack Stuward. Miss Nakajima, let's be honest with each other. I know you guys called me in cos you think I killed Veronica. I have complained about Veronica, griped about her but never once have I wish harm on her."

"And Mr Jack Stuward?"

"I've said it just now, I don't know who the holy hells is Jack Stuward except he is the second missing person. Lady, I don't want to tell you how to do your job but it seems to me that you're barking up the wrong tree. Can I please go now?"

Glancing to the other investigator, Rad Caritas, who gives a slow nod, Ginga allowed Tylor to leave, who stomps out of the office that is used as a temporary base of operations by the 108th, slamming the door on his way out. In the resulting silence that follows, Rad laughs.

"That guy watches too much television. I mean 'Let's be honest with each other. I know you guys called me in cos you think I killed Veronica.' When he said that I was going to burst my guts, trying my best not to laugh out at him. I mean we're just interviewing him."

"You think you had it tough. I was the one he was looking at all the time. Think of what I had to go through."

"Anyway on a more serious note, what are your thoughts on this case?"

"Honestly? I have no idea Rad but I have a few theories."

"Oh? Lets hear them."

"The first that comes to mind is that all the missing people have gone missing voluntary. May be they joined a cult or something."

"Sounds plausible if a bit far fetched but what's wrong with it?"

"Some people disappeared from their homes but their shoes and outer wear are still around. If people are going out, they would at least have taken their shoes with them."

"You got a point, next theory please"

"Someone is kidnapping these people for artificial mage experiments."

"This has potential. As far as anyone knows, the only thing that links all missing people together is that they either have the potential or are mages. Why didn't you say this first?"

"After I've thought of this, I did some personal investigations to see if anyone is buying large amounts of raw materials that could mean that they have the intention of doing this. I don't know about the black market but on the legal one, the only people that are buying are the ones at the CSDB and even so its in very small amounts. Not enough for something as large as a artificial mage program."

"Still, it is worth investigating them."

"Not really. I happen to know what they are using these supplies for."

"And what's that?"

"Tais"

"Tais? What Tais? Oh wait, I remember now. Him. I see your point. Poor guy. I don't envy him one bit. Okay, any more theories?"

"None that I can think of. So what do we do now?"

"Nothing really. I'm going to contact the others in the other areas. See if they have anything else to share. Why don't you look around. Maybe you'll see something that we missed the first time."

"I'll do that. See you later Rad"

"See you later. Contact me if you find anything or if there's a change in plans."

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Combing through the last known locations of both Veronic Dalis and Jack Stuward, Ginga Nakajima came to a certain conclusion. That there was nothing new to find. Giving up in disgust, she decided to go get some food as she was getting hungry. On the way to the local eatery, she manages to bump into the last person she would ever expect to see during this investigation, one Tais Scien aka "Biggest loser of the TSAB, walking disaster in human skin".

"Opps, sorry miss, didn't see you there... Ginga-san, is that you? Wow! Didn't expect to see you here. What brings you all the way out here? This is unexpected, didn't expect to see her here of all places. She still looks at beautiful as ever."

"Tais? This is surprising, what are YOU doing here? I thought you're still involve in project E.V.A? Oh, and you're thought vocalizing again but thanks for the compliment."

"Errr... Opps? Sorry about that."

"As fun as catching up can be, maybe we could all move to someplace else instead of blocking the street? People are beginning to stare at us 3."

"Okay Yui. Ginga-san, let go grab a bite, my treat."

"Wait, Yui? This person here is your A.I Yui? I thought she didn't have a physical frame."

"Questions can wait for later Nakajima-san. Let's go find a place to sit down first."

"Right. Come on Ginga-san, let's go."

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Within the depths of the earth, Veronica wakes up, opening her eyes only to see nothing. Conjuring a small ball of light, the first thing that she sees is the ghastly grin of a rotting corpse. Recoiling back in horror, she moves backwards until she bumps into something. Fearing the worse, she slowing raises her head and sees... a man. Veronica releases the breath of air she didn't realize she was holding.

"I'm so glad to see another person. I'm Veronica and Who are you and where are we?"

"Me? I'm Jack Stuward missy and we're in Hell."

"Hell? What do you mean we're in Hell?"

"Well... its close enough for me. There's only the two of us left here, corpses around, monsters in the darkness and..."

"Wait, monsters? Us two left?"

"Whacha think killed these people? The freaking tooth fairy? There's monsters around and you or me is going to die next. Just like all the rest."

"Don't worry, I'm a bureau mage. I'll get us out of here."

"HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!"

"What's so funny? I can do it. I'll get us out of here."

"There was another of you Bureau guys around and he thought the same. He did try but he failed all the same. Overwhelm his barriers and ... Ahhhhhh!"

With a sudden yell, Jack fell to the ground and swiftly got pulled into the darkness. One second he was there, the next, he was gone. Then, it gotten quiet. Too quiet. Shivering in fear, Veronica stares at the darkness beyond her small light, too afraid to look away and yet fearing to see what may appear as well.

"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

A spine chilling scream echoes from the pitch black beyond, as if the soul of the screamer was being ripped out violently. Then, silence reigns again as the scream suddenly cuts off. And yet, against all hope, Veronica's ears picked up the sound of foot steps. Staring at the direction of the footsteps, she was nearly frighten out of her skin when a pair of golden gleaming eyes stares back. As the owner of those eyes slowly step into the light, it reveals a human girl of around 16 and yet, Veronica did not feel safe. In fact, her instincts were screaming at her to run, run, run! Run away. Run to anywhere but here.

Frozen stiff with terror, she could do nothing but stare. When the figure steps fully into the light, Veronica finally understood she is going to die. No hope of survival at all. It was not the pair of monsters that melted out of the shadows, flanking the girl, nor was it the blood soaked device on her left arm. It was also not the piece of bloody flesh that the girl is chewing. No, It was the eyes. Golden orbs surrounded by twin pools of darkness, promising that no matter what she does, she will still die. Her final thoughts, as the girl approach her, is that Jack Stuward was right. She was in Hell.

To be continued C.C please.

How did Jack get there? Anyway, nice chapter.


:heh: It dose have pretty high requirements I can only run it okay with details at medium, but it's still awfully purrty even at that level and it has Far Cry good old crazy draw distances too, sniping guys from atop a jungle hill form 1 kilometer away just dose not get old, plus now you have full on super powers to boot.
10-sqX6J7s4

Also though not shown here you can also cloak, and further about half of that is in game footage too which should give you some idea of the crazy ass graphic in this thing.


Crysis...it's fun cloaking around and grabbing those poor guys, only to throw them to their deaths.

After seeing the :nod:, i decided to do a snap update on one of my main OCs here.

Name: Ashton Marten Mcdouglas
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Birthday: February 29
Hair: Brown, low-cropped, often messy but when needed, his comb is not to far away, straightening it.
Eyes: Astral Blue- Similar to Subaru's.
Build: Medium build, strong arms and legs.
Height: 5'9"
Weight: he does not say, for fear of reprisals from girls.
Home World: Mid-childa, Unknown planet, though some records indicate Guardia, the 14th BAW as his birthplace. but that will make him Ren's... wait, he is Ren's... *gets shot*
Magic System: Dei-Type (In Anime terms, it would be a gatekeeper's gate seal, with some Cyrillic Characters ringing around it.)
Magic Color: Green.
Mage Rank: BB+
Personality: A somewhat happy disposition. Loves acting cool but he sometimes doubts Himself. Loves to pester Subaru (and Subaru pesters back) and Tia is annoyed by the sight of him. He's neutral when it comes to Elio and Carol. Almost zealot-like but does not follow orders often, making him end up in trouble, sometimes.
Affiliation: Time-Space Administraion Bureau, First Exatactical Group, TSABS Silvana. Call Sign "Cross 3".
Device: Praesulus (Latin for 'Director'), the "Directive Wand"
Device Type: Key Device, Combat Boost Support
Description: It resembles a jeweled, less armored white version of the right-hand Revolver Knuckle, though without the 'revolver', thus making it akin to Carol's BD (boost device). It has a clear crystal cross about 2"x 1.3" in area on the top of it, surrounded by four red stones at the corners.
Device History: In a previous mission of the trio, before the apperance of the Gadget Drones, they have managed to recover a group of devices known as 'Key Devices', devices that were held in mytical status in legends in all the dimensions- with powers beyond that of the established. So far, only a handful of these devices were ever activated, much less on Bureau Recruits. This is also the device from which Caro/Carol's device is based from, based on a research paper crafted from an illusive Bureau Admiral- also ranting that Uninterfaced mages (mages who have no devices- Like Yuuno), the only kinds who can easily cast supporting spells are few and far between . The device found its way into Ashton's hands when it went missing from the reseach lab when said person was about to recruit into the bureau- it turns out that Key Devices seek out their respective "keepers" when needed.

Offensive Skills:

- Since this device is for support reasons, the number of offensives it can manage is low, but he can still fight with other methods.

Kinetic Dart: basically generates and fires off a powerful dart made of physical matter, thus bypassing AMF fields. Can also be steered to hit the target anywhere.

Lancet: generates a medium-length metal lance from the device, allowing the user to hack, stab and slash. Can also bypass AMF due to the physical nature of the weapon.

Pendulum Line: Basically a moored version of Kinetic Dart

Defensive Skills:

Agile Shield: basically a seal shield, in the likes of round guard or plate shield, but can be moved faster.

Agile Guard: basically similar to protection, but can be used while moving at full speed.

Support Skills:

- the forte of a supporter mage! several of the skills are akin to Carol's, since this being the device Carol's was based upon. though some Carol-centric abilites are clearly lacking.

Deflect: a shield enhancement that can deflect shots at some degree.

http://rfonline.x2game.com/files/NewSkill/Class_CF2_DarkPriest_ReturnGate.bmp
Reflect: a shield enhancement that can reflect shots by chance.

http://rfonline.x2game.com/files/NewSkill/Class_BF1_Chandra_HealWind.bmp
Accura (Accurate Cura): a healing spell that regenerates exactly 10% of a person's health per second.

http://rfonline.x2game.com/files/icon20070701/Force_Holy_High_HolyShield.gif
Raise: increases defensive value of a target

http://rfonline.x2game.com/files/icon20070701/Force_Dark_High_Celerity.gif
Tune: increases accuracy and critical hit value of a target

http://rfonline.x2game.com/files/icon20070701/Force_Dark_Middle_BroadOutlook.gif
Strech: increases range capability of a target. He uses this on Nanoha to enable her to snipe even farther with DB-X.

http://rfonline.x2game.com/files/icon20070701/Force_Holy_Middle_IncreaseSpeed(Holy).gif
Haste: increases movement and attack speeds of a target for a time limit.

http://images.mmosite.com/rf/images/guide/skill/images/bellato/6LabouringBless.gif
Hang: attempts to freeze the enemy targeted in its tracks. if sucessful, the target stops, slows down and speeds up randomly.

http://rfonline.x2game.com/files/icon20070701/Force_Dark_High_HellBless.gif
Drain: attempts to sap the enemy of his/her/its strength. if sucessful, targets suddenly tires or shuts down.

http://rfonline.x2game.com/files/NewSkill/Class_CF2_DarkPriest_ForceShield.bmp
Block: attempts to bar the enemy's movement by putting up a wall of force, if sucessful the target hits the wall and gets damaged and stops.

http://rfonline.x2game.com/files/NewSkill/Class_CW2_Templar_Sprint.bmp
Boost Line: generates a pair of magic boost rails, allowing those inside of it to speed up movement- akin to a railgun. When used in conjunction with Subaru's Wing Road, it becomes a catapult, boosting those being 'launched'. He uses this on any ranged attack to further increase attacking power- one time he used it on Nanoha, making her Accel Shooter shots feel like Divine Buster hits on the enemy end- the same effect also occured with Tia. He also uses this on Erio to not just wreck one, but six AMF+APF (Anti-magic+Anti-physical field, called an I-field) drones with one move.

http://rfonline.x2game.com/files/NewSkill/Class_CW2_BlackKnights_HypnoticPower.bmp
Gap Generator: the bane of all AMF emmitting devices! similar to Carol's field invalider, this spell generates a gap in the AMF field present, enabling those inside the gap to use magic, as if the AMF was not there.

http://images.mmosite.com/rf/images/guide/skill/cora/images/cs_maximumanimus.gif
Animus Maximus: a buff for his summons, allowing them to go into divine unlock - a state of 150% combat effectiveness.


Much of his history was like that of a normal mid-childan child, happy family, happy life- a relative nobody, until he recruited in the bureau. After being caught with the Key device, he was monitored closely and educated separately- due to the still unknown nature of the device with him- but also due to a 'special request' from his parents. During his academy days, he had also heard about the duo of Nakajima and Lanstar- the 'non-standard duo' as he called them. He graduated a relative commoner and was assigned to the mysterious ship Silvana, under the command of the illusive Admiral Kyla, the same admiral who submitted the paper on support magic. While on board, he and the crew of the ship had heard the events of MD6 and the Relics, but unfortunately, a much as Chrono or Carim would like, the ship was in a top secret mission with the GDI, hunting a rumored X-class criminal called 'Fangwang'. Years later, MD6 members were tasked by the chain of command to work with the Silvana on the case it was handling. Admiral Kyla took temporary command of reformed MD6 in the process- being a higher authority than Hayate- thus enabling Hayate to join Nanoha and Fate in the sky once more- with two new subordinates as well- Him and another Dei-type warrior. But he has a secret in his lineage- he was one of the few recorded cases of being a 'reactive', a person who can fuse with another, turning into his/her weapon- and one of the forward stars will experience it- Final Fusion anyone?


--- The Family Secret ---

Only Ashton and his family know what sacred, poweful (and terrible- maybe) secret lies in their blood line. They are the last of a human magical subgroup known as the "reactives", a group that have extensively fluid linker core lattices- making them almost ertherial in nature, if it weren't for their vastly corporeal makeup- they are humans after all. And the most important of the facts is that they are the last descendants of the Reverie Clan, the holiest of the once abundant Reactive families- keepers and bearers of the "Divine Jewel Weapon"- a weapon that was legendary in itself, spoken about in countless epics and novels in at least three magic forms- Mid, Belka and Dei. But no one has yet to see the weapon since it was last noted in an epic dating before the sectarian war between the Light Liberal and the Dark Conservative Belka- over a thousand years ago estimate. According to legend, the divine jewel is not just a stone or a weapon, it was a person in itself, born and raised normally until the age of 16 and above, where a process known as the "awakening" occurs- often a choice in a grave situation with another person- of the opposite gender- which fuses both into one fighting entity, the reactive becoming the weapon and the other one becoming her/his heart holder.
The "Seven Glittering Jewels of Divinity" (Shinsei no Shichikohoju), that was the collective name of the seven Divine Jewel Weapons whose power was comparable to the Sealed Devices- four signifying the elements and the remaining three as symbols of the human soul- Thought, faith and love. Reverie, Ansel, Dais, Mino`thael, Metherio, Amikara and Kagami- those were the reactive clans blessed with bearing the weapons in thier blood. In time, most of the clans had vanished, making the whereabouts of the weapons they bear unknown in in time, legendary. Only the Reveries remained, though in the past centuries, no one was born of that condition. As the clan members dwindled, so was hope for the weapon to shine once again- and finally, the Conservative Belkan attack on the Royal Midean planet Aedl- home of the clan, was the final wipe- the temple that the clan maintained was destroyed, scattering members across the territories of Royal Midea and Federal Chaldea- prompting the two systems to form the Midea-Chaldea alliance- casually called Mid-childa alliance- sending peacekeepers to Belkan space in an attempt to quell the sectarian war between the conservatives, led by the High Temple of Velk, and the Liberals, led by the Saint Church's predecessor, the Iolite Temple of Asra- under the command of the so called 'Saint'. Centuries pass, with the war over, and the alliance cemented (and thus the combined space was now called mid-childa), the clansmen had already married into other groups, thus thinning the possbility of the appearance of the weapon.
That is, until Ashton was born. Upon his birth, his parents and the few clansmen they have as realtives were shocked, on the boy's chest was a small green jewel- they dug up all the archives they can get thier hands on and confirmed that the boy had a divine weapon- The 'Nilthan`den 'Aeul'- ancient Midchildan for "Armor of the Devoted Lover"- the most powerful of the seven jewels- the symbol of Love- extreme devotion and love to whoever he reacts with. He was then raised as far away from girls of his age as possible, from elementary even until his training in the bureau- where he heard of the 'Amazing non-standard duo'- so in a maximum sense, he was almost clueless about girls, except for a few things that boys do- but he never fell for anyone, always saying that 'someone fated for me is out there...'

--- The "Nilithan`den 'Aeul" ---

The Armor of the Devoted Lover as it was called, dates back to before the Reign of the Saint Royal, appearing the numerous legends- mostly epic romance of the periods. It's true form was never seen and has always been described as 'an armor that conformed to the one using it, while the 'lover' as the reactive was called, conformed to the very spirit of his/her heart holder- thus further enhancing the capabilites of it'. By some feat, the reactive only reacts with a member of the opposite gender, thus bestowing it the title- and often, according to legend, heart holder and 'heart' become one in matrimony- though in some legends, after a long saga and sometimes end up in death for the couple. There had been 54 epics linked to this relic- involving peasants to princesses and now, somone in the Stars Squad will continue on the epics...

--- The Canon of Dei ---

Dei-Type magic is a relatively old form among the 800 or so magic forms, almost as old as Mid or Velka or even older, but relatively unknown to the research community until the first appearance of the Dei Templars during the Sealed Device incident. And unlike Mid and Velka, which generally focuses on certain aspects of magic, Dei-Type is somewhat unconventional, sporting a wide array of foci that to some in the general community, were considered impossible, impractical and insane.
One case is of Mid/Velkan and Dei Summoners- The first two types generally rely on thier familiars/summons to fight against enemies, leaving the summoner, in general view, with medium protection, often in the form of more summons (Lu's other bugs/Caro's pet Dragon), a special kind of summon (Lu's Garyuu) or a team partner (Erio)- though the summoner has some form of protection (shields, barriers and such) and somewhat limited attack. Dei Summoners generally fight along (in the case of an Isis or Paimon in the field) or even ahead of their summons (Inanna and Hecate in this case), in some cases the summoner sets up the target for the final strike, 'showering' the target with degrading spells or attacking it directly.
In the case with Mid Mages, Velkan Knights and Dei Templars; Dei Templars, contrary to common belief that Dei can do melee and ranged at the same time, Dei-Type is a freeform in style- not overall reliant on the device, though there is one great weakness, for the Dei rely on the weapon to not just cast spells, but also to house the energy their 'spark' (the Dei term for Linker Core) releases to that spells/skills can be performed- so basically, simply removing the weapon from a Templar's sight and touch can cause him/her to stop casting spells/summoning- there was once a remedy for this, a piece of metal surgically implanted on the casting arm, but this caused a lot of controversy and moral outcry on the Dei worlds- so a simple armlet sufficed for those emegency situations.
So far, this magic type is still under intense scrutiny of Bureau Research, and only these vague details were shown, more of the details to be published.


--- The Summoning Arts of the Dei ---

http://images.mmosite.com/rf/images/guide/skill/cora/images/cs_animusrest.gif

Being a support type dei warriror, it was paramount for him to learn the ways of his device- not just supporting allies, but also being self sufficient in combat in his form specialization, which in dei terms, meant summons. Not the familiars or guardian beasts of Mid and Belka, these beings are only called upon when needed, and reside in a space called the 'Void' when not on duty. When killed, a summon simply moves back into the void and regenerates its corporeality, often ready after about 24-48 hours, but there was a spell to speed up the process- but it was lost to time. While bearing some semblance to Carol or Lutecia's summoning techniques, dei summoning has always been quick, effective and with variation- unlike Carol or Lutecia, who could only summon a single type of creature (dragon/bug), Ashton can select from one of four beings- called totems or specifially, animus.
They cover the four basic fighting functions- melee, ranged, support and multimission. These are the four Animus.

http://rfdb.ru/img/dop/guide_3.jpg
Paimon: Melee type. Resembles an cloaked armored knight wielding a huge sword, able to take masses of hits. In full divine unlock, it bears two blades and has speed.

http://rfdb.ru/img/dop/guide_5.jpg
Hecate: Ranged type. Resembles a woman wielding a fan, using it to blast with critcal energy shots. In full divine unlock, it can summon AoE spells.

http://rfdb.ru/img/dop/guide_4.jpg
Inanna: Support Type. Resembles a cloaked angel. When it does spells, it uses its life enegy until it 'dies' and returns to the void to rest. In full divine unlock, it can support multiple targets.

http://rfdb.ru/img/dop/guide_6.jpg
Isis: Multimission type. also called the 'floating assassin', it resembles a cloaked woman wearing a rather huge and archaic jetpack with glass wheel wings. This summon if by far the hardest summon and train, but it will deliver, able to fight toe to toe with range, melee and speed, this animus has been feared at least once- when the Aces were almost beaten by it alone, during the time of AlternateS I. But it has a weakness, it can only fight one at a time. In the full divine unlock however, that is a different issue.

--- Fusion ---

And while on the subject of being a reactive and a divine weapon, Ashton has the capability to become a weapon to his chosen 'Pledger'- a person that he fuses with- which in this case is Subaru and in a couple of cases, Teana- due to his device being capable of bending the rules- in this case, the maximum number of pledgers he can have- which is 3. In the simplest terms, he bestows armor and his weapon to the pledger, but in Subaru's case, it goes another level, in fact, four levels to be precise- the only case of the heart/pledger duo to even move a level is on the only happy-ended romance epic among the 54 or so epics tied to that device- as in only one. Kyla has designated a term for each level, 'Fusion', 'Harmony', 'Unity' and 'Finality'. Once Ash fuses, he can present himself as a spiritual image of himself, commonly floating behind and a bit above.

Level 1: Fusion

The most basic state, as the name implies, this is just a normal fusion state, with Subaru being armored in such a way that Kha had described it as 'wearing semi-old-style knight armor- so basically Subaru with some areas armored- particularly some areas of the legs, body and arms, and also gets short metal headband over her right side of her head. The two in this state are in the simplest way, trying to make sense and how to's of everything.

- No Special Moves.
- Attack power is just the above average of the two. Esitmated Combined Compound Rank: BB+
- Ashton needs permission and initial movement from Subaru before he can use her limbs - especially when it comes to summoning.

Level 2: Harmony

As the name suggests, Harmony is basically the state in which Subaru and Ashton begin harmonizing with each other's magical energies- though thoughts are still separate. It started as a result of the formation of a formal friendship between the two- well if those two are 'bound' in such a way, that's the only path they can take. In this state, they can a least share energies and even fire off a much more powerful moves. The armor in this state is much more upgraded- even the shoulders and back of the cloth barrier jacket get armor and a metal halo sometimes appears on her head.

- Special Moves: (listing four for now)
> Starlight Breaker Punch: A close-range version of Nanoha's Starlight Breaker - note: Starlight Breaker to your face, not being lobbed towards you.
> X - Buster: like the famed move from a certain net-navi/reploid maverick hunter - RK charges much more energy than her DB and releases it explosively- hitting far. Needs Buster Arm to work.
> Asura Strike (low power): simply the most powerful punch that eliminates any unlucky target- though at this power level it will only hit 1% of the time. Ashton and Subaru used this move against a Viscount (rank S according to Kha) and won, but the forces generated by the unmastered and imperfect attack, coupled with the energy wave the slain noble released, ripped open a wormhole that sent them to Elhazard. It is comprised of 10 linked long spells that the reactive has to chant continously- 'singing the songs'. Also requires Subaru's IS and the KD's NS (NS: Natural Skill, which in this case is 'Law Breaker'). It exacts a heavy toll on the duo (read the pure version)
> Rapid Revolver Router: simply a multi-pass attack with the knuckle in drill form.

- Revolver Knuckle Forms:
> Buster Arm
> Drill Arm

- Attack power is an increased 1400% of the average of the two. Estimated Combined Compound Rank: AA
- Ashton only needs permission before he can 'borrow' Subaru's limbs, quite helpful when the pledger herself is tired.

Level 3: Unity


Concept pic (http://img142.imageshack.us/my.php?image=9c6085658628881a913c51csy8.jpg)

The most advanced state that they have entered so far, resulted from a little 'side trip' to Elhazard, also called 'heaven' because they got to see most the relations of the Aces (and some OCs and CCs) that have died- among these is Mertholo Scrya, Kyla's Husband; Illicida Mornay, Praesulus' previous keeper- also a reactive and Precia and Alicia Testarossa; now living happily and are waiting for Fate to come home. Also in this side trip they also meet other the Shinsei no Shichikohoju, asides from 'God's Helping Hand' Illicida, the 'Pillars of Support' team of Rinae and Cruz, the 'Sword of Justice' team of Renos and Arila and the 'Star of Guidance'... whose name was not known but her 'device' takes the form of a key staff cannon. The armor in this state is basically the same in Harmony, but with added back and skirt reinforcement and a low 'backpack', housing three funnel drones- which Ash can only control. Also in this state is the capability to 'switch' enabled- in which Subaru and Ash can trade places during a battle- after a faint shimmer. So sometimes, Ashton takes Subaru's place in the physical world- wearing her barrier armor and using her/his weapons, while Subaru takes Ashton's place as the reactive, while she rests, her spritual nature at that moment protecting her by some degree.

- Special Moves: (listing four for now)
> Giga X - Buster: a much more powerful version of X- Buster. Needs Buster Arm to work.
> Nova Strike: a powerful full-body charge attack -akin to that maverick hunter's powerful attack. Opens a sigil 'gate' before the target/s and then charges in for the attack. Linear AOE damage.
> Asura Strike (pure): the pure form of the said powerful punch attack, able to eliminate the target with no chance of missing, but depletes energy and disables any regeneration (even external mana or health heals, even rest) for about 3600 seconds. It also requires the pair to be in sync for at least 1800 seconds beforehand, with Ash 'singing' (chanting) at least 7 of the 10 linked 'songs' (very long arias) during that period- the last 3 'songs' being 'sung' by the duo before executing the attack. It also needs full activation of Subaru's IS and the KD's NS.
> Body Switch: a special skill that allows Ashton and Subaru to trade places in combat. But the Drawback is that the bodies and minds are only switched, not the jackets- so, When Ashton is in play, he still wears Subaru's jacket- luckily the additonal armor makes the jacket look boyish anyway- and Subaru can rest in relative safety as a 'pseudo-reactive', wearing his armor.

- Revolver Knuckle Forms:
> Lancer Arm
> Gigafist Arm

- Attack power is increased by an unknown percentage. Esitmated Combined Compound Rank: SS+ (It is basically unmeasured, well with all the overpowered villains running around, who would have time?)
- Due to having 'Body Switch', Ashton can take Subaru's place in combat.

Level 4: Finality

The only unseen mode, how to bring it up has been a matter of debate, from 'forming a relationship' to taking it to a higher level- the physical one.

- Attack power is totally increased by an unknown percentage. Estimated Combined Compound Rank: Unknown, assigned the X designation for the unknown aspect of it.

===

just a snap question:

do you call a villain that has:

- Millennia of planning
- Access to/ use of technologies unheard/deemed implausible/impossible of in the Bureau
- 'Countless' numbers and types of minions.
- Ultra-Loyal subjects- yes with no hint of swaying loyalty ever.
- Said subjects powerful on their own (matter/'time' manipulation, etc).
- Has incalculable powers, weapons and techniques- so powerful that even the CCs and most of the OCs have a hard time dealing with just his subjects.
- A burning desire to Transcend Space and Time (whatever that means).
- A burning desire for total destruction just to retrieve items that are the keys to the above desire.

Haxx?

And Speaking of Mai Enna...

could this be...

*runs from chainsaw*

Nice update, and yes, that is H4XX.


AAS girly coming up!
So who ever is interested, here's Rinyas profile!


Thanks goes to PhoenixFlare for helping me with the gramma! :bow:




Name: Rinya Shuri A’Kalash
Alias: Rin
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Date of birth: March 8, MC 056
Family: Bedario Shuri A’Kalash (father), Lilira Shuri A’Kalash (mother), Rikko Shuri A’Kalash (brother)
Hair Colour: Light blue
Eye Colour: Orange

Affiliation: Time-Space Administration Bureau / Air Armament service / “Dragonfly” Squadron
Position: 2nd Lieutenant / Dragonfly 01
Wizard Ranking: AA
Magic System: Neo-Belka
Magic Colour: Green
Device: Windlanze (Armed / Spear)


Background:

Birth & Childhood:
Rinya was born on Vedir into the Shuri family of the A’Kalash tribe.
Vedir was a world covered with wide windy canyons; most of them so deep that the sunlight never reaches the bottom, thus making the Vedirians live on top of the many plateaus. It was through this planet surface that the Vedirian tribes developed a unique culture where aviation is the main way of movement and transport. So Rinya was born with the blood of aviators.

Ever since she could remember, she had always dreamt of flying. Her father, the owner and pilot of a small air-cargo freight business, trained her in flying cargo gliders so that she could later work with him and carry on the family business some day.

At the age of ten, she went to a TSAB flight show with her family. The first moment she saw the aerial mages, she knew that she wanted to fly like them in the sky, without a glider or plane.
Her father didn’t like her sudden decision and ordered her to stop the stupid thinking at once. Rinya of course, did not.

Since then, the tension within the family never vanished and at the age of twelve she left her home and joined the TSAB.

In service:
Influenced by the traditions of her home world, which reached back to ancient Belka, she chose the Belkan style of magic, even if it wasn't the best choice for someone who wanted to become an aerial mage. But, with passion and hardwork, she succeeded to enter aerial training.

While she was normally good at teamwork, the somewhat reckless nature of her attacks made it difficult for her to adapt to the ways the aerial mages fought, and she nearly dropped out of aerial training. To her luck, an instructor saw the potential of her being more of a melee attacker than a ranged combat mage. Rinya was given an instructor that taught her the fighting style of a Belka Ritter, and, considering the history of her homeworld, she was given her own Device that was created after a traditional Vedirian aerial melee weapon.

Thanks to this, Rinya was able to graduate from the training school as one of the top ranking students, as an A-ranked aerial mage.

Dragonfly:
After graduation, Rinya was assigned to the Air Armaments Service Squadron "Dragonfly", an experienced battle squadron that handled patrol and rescue missions.

Rinya's first big mission was when Dragonfly helped other units in the search for a Class-1 criminal that was detected in Central Midchilda.

Dragonfly found the fugitive, but, Rinya, who was the most inexperienced, was the first to be wounded in battle and was ordered to retreat at once. She later discovered that Dragonfly was totally wiped out.
Rinya wanted to return to battle immediately, but, for her condition, was ordered to stay behind. While she was being treated at the first-aid station, the criminal was captured.

Road to Officer:
As the only survivor of Dragonfly, Rinya was sent on leave and she visited her family on Vedir, but the still-existing tension between her and her father made her return to Midchilda quickly.
Back in service, she supported other aerial squadrons on different missions.

It was the JS incident that brought her to the attention of her superiors.
During the battle against the Saint's Cradle, Rinya was flying around the battlefield, supporting other units and engaging Drones in direct combat.
Through her bravery and quick-thinking on the field, she was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and was sent to an Officer's course, her official rank now determined as AA.

Personality:
Rinya is a bright and energetic person that some people would even call her reckless.
She can be very proud and stubborn sometimes, but this is only to hide her true feelings when she is insecure.
Rinya loves flying and is very glad she joined TSAB because of it. She still thinks very fondly of her old home, even though she is not on good terms with her father.
She also tries to see the good in people first.

Windlanze
Windlanze (Wind Lance) is a device crafted after a Vedirian wind-rider's lance.
In ancient Belka, these traditional weapons were used by Vedirian knights in aerial battles and air jousting.
Swung in fast flight, the lance could deal massive damage on impact to its target.
Windlanze is additionally equipped with a second form and a Belkan cartridge system.

Modes:
Klingenform (Blade Form):

Creative!
Running low on creative juice lately. Besides I've always preferred to keep things simple.


As a defense specialist, whose strongest attack ranks at B+, it's all right.
What? I'm confused here. Who's attack ranks at B+?


You just want to see Rein being the second Shaolin master. :rolleyes:
Are you nuts? Who would wanna subject Rein to the agony of being a nun in a mountain full of senile of men? :uhoh:


It is!

Vestrell: Isn't it, goshujin-sama?
-_-' I'm starting to understand how S&W feel about Mai constantly chasing them.


This is rain compared to Chapter Four's downpour. :heh:
Rain huh? Rains can still cause flash floods. :rolleyes:


It occurs somewhere when Vivio was discovered, Vita and Rein were fighting against Lutecia, Garyuu, and Agito.
Yeah I checked. Speaking of that episode...

Lutecia: You pass.:blush:
Erio: :confused:


That's fast? You've not seen anything yet. :p
You cheese generator. -_-'


Oh dear, Sharazad dear, you just got shafted.
Sharazad: *cries at the corner*
Moment of weakness? Time to eat!!


Now, excuse me, I'm going to go into Hypertyping Mode again. :p
I take what I said earlier back. You bluecheese factory. -_-'


:eyespin::eyespin::eyespin:

*imagines PhoenixFlare chanting*

I am the key of my board.
Text is my body, and Word is my blood.
I have created over a thousand paragraphs.
Unknown to backlog.
Nor known to crack.
Have withstood pain to create many stories.
Yet, those hands will never publish anything.
So as I type,
"Unlimited Type Works"


:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:
Somehow this feels so right. :heh:


And there lies my biggest headache, making a pure-bred human live that long. :uhoh::eyespin:
Good luck with that. :heh:


It's your call but the idea is plausible at least.
Well I could probably make her cast a limited number of spells from another element with the use of chants/arias and a device aligned to that element. *ponders*


Or the elemental spells aren't that powerful compared to those cast by those aligned with it. I can think of at least one OC who has no element affinity and can still cast those, albeit being less effective IIRC. As for the case of picking up one, it is viable without taking too long. Chrono was just 14 when he first demonstrated such skill. Still thinking of other ways to get around the problem.
One must also consider than Chrono was already AAA+ rank then, which probably contributed to it somehow.


Nice expression there Erio. :nod:
:heh:


Just about all her spells are lightning, if Plama Lancer and the various shifts are counted as lightning as well. :heh:
Indeed, one would think that Plasma Smasher and some are non-elemental but when you look at it properly all her spells are lightning elemental. Though maybe haken saber isn't, not too sure.


Hmm....Mana Conversion Affinity IS the natural one, the other probable method is through a spell where one has to intentionally convert mana into the needed element.
Which needs some kind of catalyst to make it happen.


No problem :D


Well, it seems like it, Erio in the manga, before being found by Fate, used to do it all the time.
One can do it on will, as mentoned here...

What normally requires regulation via Magic, these abilities allow conversion to occur spontaneously.


I guess this backs up the previous statement I wrote that you CAN used more elements, but you'd have to focus more than with the element you have affinity with.


Ooooh, I see...interesting :D

That explains this...
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v33/zetar0n1n/white_ren.jpg
:D
Not sure. The Nanaya Shiki persona and White Ren only appear in some scenarios. Especially for Nanaya, who actually is kinda like the split personality dormant within Tohno Shiki, due to the conditioning of the demon hunting/killing instinct in the Nanaya clan member's blood.


You could cheat and attach your 7th fonist to the Saint Chruch as she practices a obscure form of sound base magics. I remember someone doing a sound base device also but I forgot who... Kaylin I think. There was abit of discussion on this but you have to go dig it up I'm afraid.
I actually thought of that too, since she is like a white mage with offensive capabilities. (Holy Lance RAWRRRR!!! Judgment!!! *cough*)

But I'm not sure if Lyrical Magic fits the concept of Fonic Artes. Although I do note that Jade doesn't need any actual singing when casting Fonic Artes, just a lot of chants/arias.


Yup, Kay is a Sonic Magic user, basically her magic specialty is sound :)

And I even have an entire Magic System based around sound and music (The Lyrical Magic System). :)
How exactly does it works?


Like I said, it was mentioned in the Eternal Coffin translation...


It is heavily implied that temperature manipulation and Mana Conversion can be leaned
Yay!!! Canon loves me. :D


Like shooting Hayate with water and watching as her clothes stick to her... contours, knocking her out through excessive embarrasment :uhoh:

*runs*Even though I feel like strangling you for suggesting that (as a Hayate-fan), I somehow approve of this scene!!! :eek:

The hell do you guys manage to keep up? And does everyone live on the other side of the world from me??? I wake up to six pages of backlog, and maybe go through two during the day. Not that it's a big thing, but...

And does anyone mind doing a Shop for me? If not that's no problem, but I can't use it myself.

So who ever is interested, here's Rinyas profile!


Thanks goes to PhoenixFlare for helping me with the gramma! :bow:




Name: Rinya Shuri A’Kalash
Alias: Rin
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Date of birth: March 8, MC 056
Family: Bedario Shuri A’Kalash (father), Lilira Shuri A’Kalash (mother), Rikko Shuri A’Kalash (brother)
Hair Colour: Light blue
Eye Colour: Orange

Affiliation: Time-Space Administration Bureau / Air Armament service / “Dragonfly” Squadron
Position: 2nd Lieutenant / Dragonfly 01
Wizard Ranking: AA
Magic System: Neo-Belka
Magic Colour: Green
Device: Windlanze (Armed / Spear)


Background:

Birth & Childhood:
Rinya was born on Vedir into the Shuri family of the A’Kalash tribe.
Vedir was a world covered with wide windy canyons; most of them so deep that the sunlight never reaches the bottom, thus making the Vedirians live on top of the many plateaus. It was through this planet surface that the Vedirian tribes developed a unique culture where aviation is the main way of movement and transport. So Rinya was born with the blood of aviators.

Ever since she could remember, she had always dreamt of flying. Her father, the owner and pilot of a small air-cargo freight business, trained her in flying cargo gliders so that she could later work with him and carry on the family business some day.

At the age of ten, she went to a TSAB flight show with her family. The first moment she saw the aerial mages, she knew that she wanted to fly like them in the sky, without a glider or plane.
Her father didn’t like her sudden decision and ordered her to stop the stupid thinking at once. Rinya of course, did not.

Since then, the tension within the family never vanished and at the age of twelve she left her home and joined the TSAB.

In service:
Influenced by the traditions of her home world, which reached back to ancient Belka, she chose the Belkan style of magic, even if it wasn't the best choice for someone who wanted to become an aerial mage. But, with passion and hardwork, she succeeded to enter aerial training.

While she was normally good at teamwork, the somewhat reckless nature of her attacks made it difficult for her to adapt to the ways the aerial mages fought, and she nearly dropped out of aerial training. To her luck, an instructor saw the potential of her being more of a melee attacker than a ranged combat mage. Rinya was given an instructor that taught her the fighting style of a Belka Ritter, and, considering the history of her homeworld, she was given her own Device that was created after a traditional Vedirian aerial melee weapon.

Thanks to this, Rinya was able to graduate from the training school as one of the top ranking students, as an A-ranked aerial mage.

Dragonfly:
After graduation, Rinya was assigned to the Air Armaments Service Squadron "Dragonfly", an experienced battle squadron that handled patrol and rescue missions.

Rinya's first big mission was when Dragonfly helped other units in the search for a Class-1 criminal that was detected in Central Midchilda.

Dragonfly found the fugitive, but, Rinya, who was the most inexperienced, was the first to be wounded in battle and was ordered to retreat at once. She later discovered that Dragonfly was totally wiped out.
Rinya wanted to return to battle immediately, but, for her condition, was ordered to stay behind. While she was being treated at the first-aid station, the criminal was captured.

Road to Officer:
As the only survivor of Dragonfly, Rinya was sent on leave and she visited her family on Vedir, but the still-existing tension between her and her father made her return to Midchilda quickly.
Back in service, she supported other aerial squadrons on different missions.

It was the JS incident that brought her to the attention of her superiors.
During the battle against the Saint's Cradle, Rinya was flying around the battlefield, supporting other units and engaging Drones in direct combat.
Through her bravery and quick-thinking on the field, she was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and was sent to an Officer's course, her official rank now determined as AA.

Personality:
Rinya is a bright and energetic person that some people would even call her reckless.
She can be very proud and stubborn sometimes, but this is only to hide her true feelings when she is insecure.
Rinya loves flying and is very glad she joined TSAB because of it. She still thinks very fondly of her old home, even though she is not on good terms with her father.
She also tries to see the good in people first.

Windlanze
Windlanze (Wind Lance) is a device crafted after a Vedirian wind-rider's lance.
In ancient Belka, these traditional weapons were used by Vedirian knights in aerial battles and air jousting.
Swung in fast flight, the lance could deal massive damage on impact to its target.
Windlanze is additionally equipped with a second form and a Belkan cartridge system.

Modes:
Klingenform (Blade Form):
Windlanze’s standard form is a short spear with a long blade.

Zwillingsklingenform (Twin Blade Form):
A second blade appears on the other side of the now-shortened hilt. This form is used when battling more opponents at once.



Defensive Spells:

Knight Armour:
Rinyas Knight Armour is a green and white bodysuit. Armour parts cover the upper torso, shoulders, forearms, knees and feet. The Knight Armour is designed to prefer mobility over protection.

Sturmschild (Storm Shield):
Shield spell in form of a triangle.

Windtanz (Wind Dance)

And AWESOME DRAWINGS. I so...SOOOO envy you :mad:.

And on that little note, I need a little help to make a slight modification to a pic of Shamsel's 'berserker' form. Anyone with l33t Photoshop skillz can help me out?

Training Grounds, RF6

-Myristic-

Pushing out into the sky for what seemed like an eternity was reason enough for me to smile. Lately, all the work involved with the unit had consisted of desk work ensuring the books were kept, that our equipment was being maintained, etc. The others were in the air already, blue, green and yellow specks of light rapidly changing positions as each of them prepared in their own ways. Opposite me, another group was rising into the sky, the colour of their magic filling the spaces between them.

Stand by for limiter release.

Seconds after the announcement power flared around me as each of us gained access to our full strength, a rainbow of colours that was beautiful to the eye, but deadly in use. I could feel the joy in the others, the limiting of powers was something that all of us objected to, but had grudgingly accepted. We were but tenants of the Ground Forces, subject to their rules and regulations while planet side.

The Weavers made their way down to me, making lazy circles in the air. I gave them thumbs up as they drew closer, a signal for them to get ready. As they finally reached me I opened my mouth to begin to going over the plan in detail.

“Don’t waste your breath Myr, we already know what to do!” David called.

“Maybe you think you do but let’s go over it again anyway” I replied.

Juliet interrupted me and in her best impersonation of me, she said “Right the mission is simple. First, we’ll proceed covertly towards the EZ as far as possible-”

Meia continued her voice low, “Once discovered by enemy forces, we are to defeat them as quickly as possible and make best speed to the EZ, stopping only to fight if necessary. As we need to return to base at 12, a time limit has been imposed. Failure to complete the exercise by 11:30 is an automatic loss to our team, represented by the arrival of enemy reinforcements.”

At this point I was laughing too hard to care that I had been interrupted, their impersonations of me a source of great amusement. “Those aren’t getting any better…. In fact I think that they’re getting worse each time you try.” Blank faces met me as I continued to laugh, before I was stopped by Mei swinging her device straight at my head, forcing me to block, fast.

The sensor grid will be disabled for the next 30 seconds, will all participants head to their starting locations.

“We’ll have to save this for later.” I yelled as we dove, heading for ground level. Accessing the menus within the TCD, I added myself to the Weaver’s displays, the device allowing us to exchange tactical data between us, in addition to maps and other low level sensors. We touched down, settling into an easy run between the concrete spires looming above. Speed was of essence. The distance we covered before getting discovered would have a massive effect on determining the outcome.

Exercise start.

We continued on for another 30 seconds without incident, before a pink sphere of magic appeared in front of us. “Combat jackets, NOW!” I called. There was no need to be told twice; the other’s summoning forth the heavily armoured over suit, the TCD automatically altering the colour from the standard black to one more suited to our environment. The sphere pulsed once, before accelerating towards us. We leapt into flight, speeding away from the location, out pacing the sphere with ease. [We’ve been spotted too early, there’s no way to avoid combat with all of their forces now. We’ll have to make a break for it.]

[Does any one have any information about the extra forces that we have to deal with? It’ll be risky to try anything ambitious without knowing their capabilities.] David asked.

[Perhaps, but we can’t afford to waste any more time. Each passing second just gives them time to create more searchers.] Meia replied. ‘Good call’ I thought. I activated the TCB, setting a directional marker. We accelerated towards the sky in a tight diamond formation, Meia in the lead, Juliet and David behind her, with me taking the rear position.

Transitioning between the levels took place without a hitch and we continued on, going from roof to roof. Since taking to the roof tops, we had avoided another 5 searcher’s, from three different users, pink, green and red. “This is taking too long. We may have to just take our chances and fly to the EP,” I said.

“Agreed,” Juliet chimed in, “We haven’t been attacked yet, but it’s going to happen soon. Breaking stealth isn’t going to be what they’re expecting, shifting the advantage to us.”

Meia deliberated for moment, “Right, you’ve convinced me.” We took off from the roof, our departure creating a small shockwave that rattled the surroundings. [Steadily increase altitude until we hit the standard flight ceiling. We’ll spread to distance 2 to give us better manoeuvring room.] Moments after we lifted off, I felt an on overwhelming sensation in the back of my skull; ten’s of pink orbs filling the space we had just vacated, many of which impacted on the roof, raising a plume of dust into the air.

[That was close. Keep an eye out.] A streak of light in the corner of my eye was the only warning of what was to come. Acting on reflex I created a shield in that direction, a flaming sword smashing into it as it materialised. The shield’s structure began to crack, white amongst the blue, getting longer and longer as the owner of the weapon continued their assault against my defences, her long pink hair trailing behind her. The other’s realised my predicament as this occurred and I sighed in relief as my shield was reinforced by Juliet, her shield weaving together with my own. Meia and David were no slower to react, each of them firing as our shields wove together. The owner of the device had no warning, the shots passing through our shields, and took two heavy blows to the body. The force of the impact blasting her back several meters.

Suddenly, tendrils of green wrapped themselves around me and Juliet. I followed the stream of energy with my eyes, to see a figure approaching from below, fists extended. He connected with my right foot, shattering the weakened shield, sending me tumbling upwards, snapping the bind on me. Juliet responded quickly, opening fire below her. Some of the bolts were blocked by his defences, pushing him away from us. Others passed by him, following the streams of green to their origin. It winked out of existence shortly after.

David and Meia had wasted no time as we came under attack, taking advantage of our misfortune to charge their own attacks. A massive beam of dark blue lanced past me, heading towards the sword knight. Another beam tinged with green swept past Juliet, heading towards our other attacker. Juliet and I added to the attacks, bolts of arcfire filling the sky.

With the completion of our attacks, we didn’t hesitate, flying away from the scene as fast as we could while maintaining formation. We heard the attacks hit home as we turned our backs form the scene, the level of the attack guaranteed to strain their barriers and magical endurance, if not take them out of the fight entirely. We managed to advance another 20 meters before the next attack came, this time from below. A pink stream of energy wide enough to rival our previous attack appeared before any of us could dodge. It hit the combined shields of Juliet and Meia directly, some of the attack leaking around the edges. Even these scraps contained enormous power, activating my automatic defences. The attack continued on, battering against their shields. It was now 3 seconds into the attack and I sensed the strain in the shield, beginning to buckle under the load of power. Quickly I reinforced the others, lending my strength to the shield. The onslaught continued, my magical reserves being burnt away at an alarming rate, just from maintaining the shield.

“Blade Storm!” Pin pricks of light materialised beneath David, making it seem like he was standing on a thick blue cloud, far to the right of us. Each point accelerating away targeting a wide area below us, where the attack came from. 2 seconds later, the attack stopped. We flew away, gaining altitude as we went. We quickly hit the flight ceiling, any higher and we would be falling out of the sky in minutes. So far we had encountered 2 of the 7 on the opposing force, and each of them had forced us to weave. ‘We underestimated their abilities.’ I thought, ‘It’s probably a good thing that there were no other combat capable members in their division.’

The respite gained from our barrage was short lived, in seconds; a swarm of orbs broke through the clouds, closely followed by a larger ellipse of magic. I kept an eye of her as we flew, with each passing moment, the gap between us and her attack decreasing. [Scatter] I sent to the others. We broke into two, taking sharp turns to the left and right respectively. The orbs followed us, splitting roughly into equal groups, small bursts of energy dissipating into the atmosphere as a swarm in the centre collided with each other. The resultant blast played havoc with our ability to sense magic. This combined with the concentration needed to dodge the remaining attacks led to me and Juliet flying straight into another attack, from none other but than the one who knew us the best, Fate.

The air in front of us was filled with plasma lancers, golden arrows that punched into our defences. The initial salvo decimated our hasty shields, leaving the second more potent attack to slam directly into our bodies. Each hit felt like getting punched gently, but the succession of attacks left me gasping in pain. Juliet faired slightly better, being further back, allowing her to bring up another shield that was able to absorb some of the attacks before breaking. [Rear Shields!] was Meia’s panicked cry. We acted instantly. I kept my eyes forward, bringing it up as Juliet spun around, casting her own directly in front of mine. I felt a tug at my magic as she began the task of merging the strength of the two together, the connection breaking as the attack rolled in, the force of it pushing us forward.

Meia and David flew past below our feet, heading towards Fate. A barrage of fire flew in their direction which they dodged nimbly, rolling to the left. A flash of green covered the sky momentarily before fading, magical energy gathered around Meia’s body as she invoked her ultimate spell, Vandread. We followed them on their attack run, wary of attacks from behind. Meia sped off, leaving David behind as she accelerated. A line of green light was all that could be seen of her, one that speared towards Fate, striking an instant later. Nothing happened as Meia re-appeared to the eye behind Fate. The damage done was apparent as we grew closer. Her barrier jacket was smoking, tiny rips throughout. The once pristine white cloak was no longer to be seen and the bottom of half of her device had simply disappeared. She was still standing, a testament to her strength and endurance. A chain of fire radiated out from David. One, two, three orbs hitting simultaneously. Her strength finally gave and she fell, face first towards the ground, descending more rapidly with each passing second.

We rejoined Meia, the fatigue that was rapidly setting in made even more apparent by her heavy breathing. “1, maybe 2 down.” She said between pants. “How much further to the EP?” she asked.

“1 minute of uninterrupted formation flying,” David replied, “Roughly 2 klicks away.”

As he spoke, I swept my eyes around, ever vigilant for attacks. The sky to the north was clear, with the south clear as well. Suddenly, a directional marker appeared in the TCD, the other’s already moving. As I went to follow them, a series of heavy blows rained upon me. My autonomous defences were destroyed by the first, leaving two to hit home, my upper arm going numb from the force, nearly making my drop my device.

The others had fared no better, a cross of heavy fire from the east and north, sending David and Juliet tumbling away, down towards the earth. Meia was the only one unaffected, having been in the centre of the group, blue, pink and red flashing past above and below her position. Shields up, she came back up to me, hovering protectively in front, letting me recompose my self. “Looks like they’re all here now…”

“Yeah, two of the others in the initial attack are down on the rooftops, in the region where Fate crashed down.” I grimaced from the delayed sensation of pain in my right arm, the numbing effect of the bolts wearing off as we spoke. “How are David and Juliet?”

“They’re fine for the moment…”She pointed off to her right, where a silhouette could be seen, “Looks like we’ve got their attention for the time being.” I reinforced our shields, as she spoke. “There’s another two behind us, one slightly higher than the other.”

I slowly turned my head in the indicated directions, a black suited figure slightly below us, the other hovering with the sun behind her, blurring her features. The sensors attached to the TCB whirled into life, filtering out the glare of the sun, and magnifying the image. It slowly became clearer, another black suited figure, holding a deadly looking pole arm.

David’s thoughts came loud, ringing in my skull, [Meia, Myristic do you read?]

I let Meia reply as I updated the TCD, with the locations of the enemy. The data transferred as Juliet replied, [Pass the word and we’ll spring the cage.]

[David, Juliet. I’ve passed you the Tac info. Intercept the two on the rooftops attending to Fate. We’ll be fine up here. Just be careful, we’re still unsure of the status of the sword knight….] Fire from three separate directions flew towards us, interrupting me. We dodged around it nimbly, bolts colliding with each other, exploding with brilliant colour, providing a spectacular light show for all to see.

David’s mental reply came shortly after. I focused on our opponents, mentally mapping their positions in the sky, “We’re heading straight for Nanoha then?” I asked, “Unless of course you want to make this harder….”

Laughter greeted me, “I’d say that we’re up to the challenge… but it’s far too dangerous with a cannon pointed at your back.” She gave me a thumbs up, “Here’s the plan. Charge, dodge and kill. Any questions?”

“I can see why the others like you in charge…” I said dryly, “I certainly didn’t let them do what they wanted all the time.”

“Simple is best after all,” Meia shot back. “Unlike some of the convoluted plans you came up with…” She readied her device, the tip glowing with power as an overcharged arcfire was readied. I swung around, reaching for my magic, mental blocks releasing as I pulled. Bringing my device to my shoulder, I took aim and fired in one fluid motion, lancing towards the axe wielder, Keroko. Meia moved as it sped off, myself following soon after. My barriers focused solely towards the rear, relying on Meia for our forward protection.

We covered the distance between ourselves and Nanoha in a mere 6 seconds. 3 seconds in, we were surrounded by a deadly halo of energy, which ripped into our defences. Each and every impact slowly reducing the effectiveness of the barriers. Thankfully, the barrage ceased as we moved within 150 metres of her position. We were now close enough to hear what she was saying.

One. Two. Three. Her device loaded in rapid succession, the empty casings caught the sun as they fell, three points of light that stood out in the background as she yelled her next attack. “DIVINE BU—SU—TER!”

It was only 100 meters to her as she fired. A pink beam that eclipsed the brightness of everything else in the area. I rotated my barrier around to face forward, calling a round shield into existence directly behind it, followed by Meia’s own. We flew head first into the column of energy, our weakened barriers holding for a split second before collapsing. Nanoha’s attack continued on, it’s force unabated, smashing into our shields with ferocious intensity. Unlike the first time, we were prepared for the tremendous force of the beam, the second we had to prepare allowing us to reinforce the structure of the shielding, making it more resistant. Even with the extra preparations, the sheer amount of power was beginning to eat away at the shield. Everything about the attack was astounding, the power, the scale, the duration. Even the sound was astonishing, silent in flight, yet once it encountered any resistance, growing in noise, as if the attack was cheering itself on. “This can’t continue on for much longer can it?” I roared, fighting to make myself heard.

Meia shook her head, [What was that? I missed it.]

[This can’t continue for much longer can it?]

[Perhaps not… Still, it’s time to begin the counter.] I nodded. Carefully, we began to edge towards the outer edges of the shield. I held my device out, the head of the staff pushing against our shield. I glanced upwards to check that Meia was in position. She was in a similar position to mine, a slight nod indicating that her readiness.

Slowly, we slipped out past the edge of the shield. I could feel my barrier jacket getting whipped about in the outer edges of the beam. The tips of our devices held the shield in place. I tightened my grip around the bottom of the shaft. In unison with Meia, I slowly pulled the head across the face of the shield, moving further and further away from its protective embrace.

It was a risky plan. We would slip away while maintaining the shield. Detonate the shield to make it seem like the attack was a success, and hit them once they moved to confirm. It had worked so far, but we were now approaching the hardest part, holding the shield in place while we moved away from it. One sudden movement and we would get caught in the onslaught of the attack. The head of my device was now approaching the edge. Bold letters flashed into view.

[I]Objects approaching from 7 o’clock

I turned my head to the left, careful to keep my grip steady. Behind me, I could faintly make out the figures of two people.

[I’m in position] came Meia’s reassuring voice, [Myr. Move up a little, then slowly pull away for a moment.]

I followed her instructions, flinching as I pulled away. ‘I hope she knows what she’s doing.’ [Ready]

[In three, flee.]

[One] Bolts from Keroko and Tesla slammed into my side. The shield tilted further as the bolts pushed me slightly to the right.

[Two] It was nearly time. [I]Acceleration.

[Three] I pushed away at top speed. The shield collapsed behind me as I fled, the torrent of energy that had been stopped in its tracks resuming its destructive path. Looking back, I could now see why Meia had told me to shift positions slightly. Instead of following its original path, the beam was now heading a slightly different direction, straight towards the incoming fliers.

[We can worry about them later, get to Nanoha!] I mentally berated myself for getting distracted as I moved off. I focused my aim at her, sighting along the length of my device as I flew towards her. The head of my device was filling with energy, a tactic that had been developed within the unit to mask the charging of spells from the enemy. A light on the side flashed twice, showing me that we were ready to fire.

[Ready?] In response, a counter appeared on screen.

2.

1.

0. A cone of energy appeared from my device as I fired. It grew to a diameter of half a metre as it left my staff. The air crackled as it zipped past, tiny sparks of electricity leaping around the attack before disappearing just as quickly. I was a mere 50 metres from her as I fired, just far enough away for her to bring up a shield before it struck.

Focused as she was on my attack, Nanoha was caught by surprise from behind as Meia’s buster devastated her defences. The shock of it must have broken her concentration, my own attack slamming into her body a second later. I followed up with a bind, thick bands of magic that prevented her from moving. “I don’t suppose you’d like to stand down and pretend that you’ve been knocked out.” I asked her as I moved closer to her. “It’d be easier on your body.”

“Taking pity on your opponent? That’s not good Captain,” Nanoha replied. Then to my shock, she continued, “Raising Heart, Mode release.”

Alright, my master.

“I didn’t think you’d actually agree to it.”

“As much as I’d live to try and continue resisting, I’d have been taken out in seconds. Getting knocked out isn’t my definition of fun. Plus, I still have paper work to do….” She concluded with a sigh.

Before I could reply, a stream of red fire cut across the space between me and Nanoha, sending me diving backwards.

“Che, Looks like my plan didn’t quite work out.” Meia said as she returned fire with a trio of arcfires. “Then again, I didn’t really expect it to work that well either.”

“Plan?” I asked, scanning the sky below me.

“Later,” She replied tersely, “The priority is to meet up with the others before heading to the EP. We’re clear?”

“It looks like it, but they’ll be down there somewhere,” I said. [David, status?]

Silence.

[Juliet, status?]

[We’re lying low about 100 metres from the initial tac point.] A sense of annoyance and anger pervaded her thoughts. [The sword wielder caught us off guard. She’s no longer a problem, but Dave’s down.]

[Fuck.]

[My thoughts exactly.]

[Hold your postion, we’re on our way.]

[Roger]

****

1054

Crouching, I edged the tip of my device past the corner, the live video stream directed to the TCD. Doubling checking my surroundings, I swiftly ran across the gap. I was now only 20 metres from Juliet’s position, and although I hadn’t seen any sign of pursuit since Meia and I had split up, it wasn’t the time to get sloppy. ‘It’s quiet… almost too quiet.’

As I rounded the corner of the next building, the waypoint marker ticked to 6m. Stopping behind the low wall facing the complex, I glanced around, trying to find them. [Juliet, confirm your position.]

[Above, to your right.] I turned my head slightly to my right, searching when I finally saw them.

[Well at least we know that the camo works… No way that I would have spotted you on my own.]

[R&D will be pleased. Completely useless for combat however.]

[Well, we can’t have everything.] I sent, as I floated up to them. “Damm, he’s going to be sore as hell later tonight.” I remarked as I saw him, “What the hell hit him?” His jacket was shredded; you could see faint bruises developing where the jacket had disappeared.

“I didn’t get a very good look of it, but it was a chain whip of sought. I was more concerned with taking her down as quick as possible. Hard to believe she could still be standing after what we hit her with.” She shook her head in disbelief before continuing, “The control she had was incredible as well, manipulating the attack to just score the surface. I’d hate to go up against her one on one.”

I finished checking his vitals as she stopped. “We’ll have to give him a proper check later, but he’s fine to move.” Kneeling next to him, I pulled his limp body up, draping his arms over my shoulders, loosely binding him into position. Awkwardly I stood, my left arm snaking behind to support his weight. “Right, let’s go. Juliet, take point.”

Together, we manoeuvred through the streets. Meia’s icon grew solid after we had gone 50 metres towards the EP. It reassured me that she was watching close by. ‘1536 metres and counting.’ We sped up as we approached an intersection.

It proved to be a good decision.

An instant after we swept through, it exploded. The shockwave of the blast pushing me into the side of the building. Shattered fragments of glass rained down around us as we scurried for cover. Pushing our backs against the building, I began erecting a shield around us as Juliet scanned the area for signs of the enemy. It was rocked within seconds, a duo of projectiles coming from the west.

Out of the haze surrounding the intersection, I could just make out the shape of an axe. Juliet opened fire, filling the air around the blades with arcfire. The figure burst out of the haze, finally giving us a visual of the wraith that had been stalking us for the past 10-15 min. A pure black bodysuit, edged with lines of blood red. Fiery red hair tied into a ponytail, double headed axe in hand. Not the best camouflage, but one that would strike fear into those that she swooped down on. Another figure flew up to join her, blue hair streaming behind her. Her jacket was much like Keroko’s, but lined in blue.

Meia’s voice butted in, [Myristic, Juliet, keep them there.]

“So uh… what’s with the hair matching lining?” I asked, my voice booming across the gap.

[Working on it. Juliet, get ready to break for it. Meia, take the red head. We’ll take the other.]

[Understood] Juliet replied.

Silence.

One of the two quickly retorted, “You’re about to get caught, incarcerated for espionage and yet that’s the first question you ask?”

“We’re not in chains yet.” A flash of green streaked past, zipping through. It was a surreal moment, one that could easily fit into a play, our ‘angel’ of salvation appearing right on cue to save us. Although whether we would have a happy ending remains to be seen.

We blazed away from our position, Juliet slightly behind, readying her attack. Tesla’s bolts slammed uselessly into my shield, and was taken out by Juliet’s gamma ray. We cut to their left as we breezed through, opting to take the direct flight path to the EP, instead of lurking in the shadows. Meia joined us, coming up behind me as we raced through the streets, raising our altitude as we went along.

Without warning spikes of energy appeared in out path, erupting from the sides of the building, boxing us between them. Already close to the end of the ‘roof’ we continued on. Finally emerging out from it, we shot upwards.

I managed to ascend 2 metres before I was roughly jerked back down. Meia joined me on the descent. Two thin streams of green energy were wrapped around out legs, stretched into the shadows. It wasn’t the strongest of binds, but in our weakened states, was sufficient to hold us in place. Juliet flew back in, firing away. We watched in anticipation as the bolts flew down.

Nothing.

I could see Juliet nodding above us, obviously receiving guidance from Meia. Coming in closer to me, she said, “Cut the binds, I’ll take David,” as she draped his arms around her.

“Careful now, don’t want to drop him.” With that I released the final bind. She moved slowly away from us, David’s limp form on her back before she flew off, heading straight up. [Myr, D-cannon at the ready. We’ll drop it on top of their heads once we get closer.]

We were reeled in slowly. It became apparent why Juliet’s earlier attack failed once we came to within 15 metres of Shamal. [Well he’s obviously worthy of his title, the Shielding Guardian Beast. Although whether he’s capable of shrugging off 2 D’s are another question.] The gathering energy threatened to explode from my grasp as we were dragged down. I quickly managed to get it back under my control, storing it into my device.

[Once we pass 10 metres, fire]

‘Not a moment too soon, I wouldn’t have been able to hold it for much longer.’ I thought.

“Fire,” I murmured softly as we passed the mark.

A dark sphere instantaneously formed over the pair, its swirling depths an endless void of pure black. It crashed down on top of them, enveloping their figures in its destructive embrace. A gamma ray speared into it seconds later, following the tendrils that still bound us. They pulsed once before unwrapping themselves, getting pulled into the depths of the spell before we could blink.

We watched on silently as we retreated from the scene, heading upwards at speed, until we could no longer see it lying below us.

She was waiting for us as we appeared between the buildings. “Any problems?” Meia asked as we came into speaking distance.

“None,” she stated matter of factly, “I think I caught a glimpse of the other two about a minute ago, but the searcher revealed nothing.”

I shrugged, “Well even if they’re still conscious, Keroko won’t be too much of a problem. Vandread hurts… a lot. Although much more of this and I won’t be moving for a while.”

“Agreed. I haven’t been hit as much as you have sir, but what’s gotten through is going to hurt a lot later on.” Juliet said as she nodded, agreeing to my statement.

“Right, let’s get moving. Only a klick left now.” Meia said.

****

The next minute passed swiftly, with no further interruptions. My battered body protested as we flew along, at a much slower pace than what we were capable of. The roughly hour long exercise had depleted much of my energy. Judging from the others, they were pretty worn out as well.

The distance left to the EP ticked down quickly in flight, until the counter was no more.

Exercise completed at 1121.

“Next time we do this, find some easier opponents for us…I’m going to be sore for a week.” Juliet said as we made our way to the ground.

I chuckled, “No problem, I’m not that big a masochist that I want to suffer their attacks day in and out.”

“Sure you’re not.”


Just one more part to go now. It shouldn't take too long as well since there won't be any actions scenes to painstakingly construct.

Thoughts please, if you have any, even if just to say that is sucked and you have to learn to write :p

Pretty nice, even if I don't have a clue what's going on. I must read the first parts.


AAS girly coming up!
So who ever is interested, here's Rinyas profile!


Thanks goes to PhoenixFlare for helping me with the gramma! :bow:




Name: Rinya Shuri A’Kalash
Alias: Rin
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Date of birth: March 8, MC 056
Family: Bedario Shuri A’Kalash (father), Lilira Shuri A’Kalash (mother), Rikko Shuri A’Kalash (brother)
Hair Colour: Light blue
Eye Colour: Orange

Affiliation: Time-Space Administration Bureau / Air Armament service / “Dragonfly” Squadron
Position: 2nd Lieutenant / Dragonfly 01
Wizard Ranking: AA
Magic System: Neo-Belka
Magic Colour: Green
Device: Windlanze (Armed / Spear)


Background:

Birth & Childhood:
Rinya was born on Vedir into the Shuri family of the A’Kalash tribe.
Vedir was a world covered with wide windy canyons; most of them so deep that the sunlight never reaches the bottom, thus making the Vedirians live on top of the many plateaus. It was through this planet surface that the Vedirian tribes developed a unique culture where aviation is the main way of movement and transport. So Rinya was born with the blood of aviators.

Ever since she could remember, she had always dreamt of flying. Her father, the owner and pilot of a small air-cargo freight business, trained her in flying cargo gliders so that she could later work with him and carry on the family business some day.

At the age of ten, she went to a TSAB flight show with her family. The first moment she saw the aerial mages, she knew that she wanted to fly like them in the sky, without a glider or plane.
Her father didn’t like her sudden decision and ordered her to stop the stupid thinking at once. Rinya of course, did not.

Since then, the tension within the family never vanished and at the age of twelve she left her home and joined the TSAB.

In service:
Influenced by the traditions of her home world, which reached back to ancient Belka, she chose the Belkan style of magic, even if it wasn't the best choice for someone who wanted to become an aerial mage. But, with passion and hardwork, she succeeded to enter aerial training.

While she was normally good at teamwork, the somewhat reckless nature of her attacks made it difficult for her to adapt to the ways the aerial mages fought, and she nearly dropped out of aerial training. To her luck, an instructor saw the potential of her being more of a melee attacker than a ranged combat mage. Rinya was given an instructor that taught her the fighting style of a Belka Ritter, and, considering the history of her homeworld, she was given her own Device that was created after a traditional Vedirian aerial melee weapon.

Thanks to this, Rinya was able to graduate from the training school as one of the top ranking students, as an A-ranked aerial mage.

Dragonfly:
After graduation, Rinya was assigned to the Air Armaments Service Squadron "Dragonfly", an experienced battle squadron that handled patrol and rescue missions.

Rinya's first big mission was when Dragonfly helped other units in the search for a Class-1 criminal that was detected in Central Midchilda.

Dragonfly found the fugitive, but, Rinya, who was the most inexperienced, was the first to be wounded in battle and was ordered to retreat at once. She later discovered that Dragonfly was totally wiped out.
Rinya wanted to return to battle immediately, but, for her condition, was ordered to stay behind. While she was being treated at the first-aid station, the criminal was captured.

Road to Officer:
As the only survivor of Dragonfly, Rinya was sent on leave and she visited her family on Vedir, but the still-existing tension between her and her father made her return to Midchilda quickly.
Back in service, she supported other aerial squadrons on different missions.

It was the JS incident that brought her to the attention of her superiors.
During the battle against the Saint's Cradle, Rinya was flying around the battlefield, supporting other units and engaging Drones in direct combat.
Through her bravery and quick-thinking on the field, she was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and was sent to an Officer's course, her official rank now determined as AA.

Personality:
Rinya is a bright and energetic person that some people would even call her reckless.
She can be very proud and stubborn sometimes, but this is only to hide her true feelings when she is insecure.
Rinya loves flying and is very glad she joined TSAB because of it. She still thinks very fondly of her old home, even though she is not on good terms with her father.
She also tries to see the good in people first.

Windlanze
Windlanze (Wind Lance) is a device crafted after a Vedirian wind-rider's lance.
In ancient Belka, these traditional weapons were used by Vedirian knights in aerial battles and air jousting.
Swung in fast flight, the lance could deal massive damage on impact to its target.
Windlanze is additionally equipped with a second form and a Belkan cartridge system.

Modes:
Klingenform (Blade Form):
Windlanze’s standard form is a short spear with a long blade.

Zwillingsklingenform (Twin Blade Form):
A second blade appears on the other side of the now-shortened hilt. This form is used when battling more opponents at once.



[B]Defensive Spells:

Knight Armour:
Rinyas Knight Armour is a green and white bodysuit. Armour parts cover the upper torso, shoulders, forearms, knees and feet. The Knight Armour is designed to prefer mobility over protection.

Sturmschild (Storm Shield):
Shield spell in form of a triangle.

Windtanz (Wind Dance)
A spell that increases the casters speed and allows almost instantaneous movement.

Offensive Spells:

Luftmesser (Air Knife):
A spell that is using magic to compress and accelerate the air around the device. It enables the caster to create blades of wind and throw them at the target.

Windschnitter (Wind Reaper):
A more powerful version of Luftmesser.
This spell needs a cartridge to be activated.

Sturmangriff (Assault):
A spell that uses Windtanz as base.
Magical energy is infused into the blade of the device enhancing its ability to penetrate shields and armour. The caster is then boosted forward, allowing him a single strike with the enhanced blade.
This spell needs two cartridges to be activated.

Hmm... I think Emili would like her >.>

A recent Sound Stage IIRC.

So then why can Agito and Signum apparently Unison well? Or could that be attributed to Signum herself also being a computer program (or... was)

Exactly. I mean, just why the hell would fate become immume to lightning type spells just because she can cast them more easilly? :eyespin:

Lightning-resistant is not Lightning-immune.

Pride as a professional scientist, sorry :heh:

It's alright.:)

Yup, and he has a wide variety of prothetics to boot. His entire left arm, for example. As for his face.... well a picture says more then a thousand words:

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y191/Liinna/Nanoha/TonPhanan.png

Although it seems that Belka healing magic does have some effect, hence why he spends time with Shamal every once in a while. ;)

I see the connection now...:D

Heh, don't worry, there won't be so much as "magic damage" when Hayate attacks. What she can do is just refrain from using those nukes on Sharazad. That said, bombardments can still be handled somewhat, though only by the Trystahn.

Well... She could like freeze Sharazad with the ice-capture spell shown in the manga...:heh:

:nod:

Circumstances that are difficult to deal with. :(


How about adding more elements to be used in your plans?:heh:


Phew, all done :D
Thanks to TK for his intial read over of it, and to Keroko for letting me borrow tesla and Keroko-chan :D

Here's Part 7 of my ficlet, A visit to RF6, weighing in at 5.2k words. If you missed any of the previous parts, links can be found at my master index (http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost.php?p=974723&postcount=869).

NAISU!:D:D:D That's what you call tactics!:D The best part was Nanoha's capture!:D

My only gripe is the seemingly lamentable lack of suitable tactics for the Aces' side. Considering Tesla and Fate (who knows about Myristic and the others) are with them. They should have been more prepared and organized; not just going solo or by two's.:heh:

Anyway, it was very good!:D Fate seemed to be the one who got hurt the most...:uhoh:

It's your own damn fault for writing it. :p

Fine... >.>

Ooh, NICE!!!:D:D:D This is what I call a complete profile!:D (w/ good pictures included)
Good work!:D I envy your drawings...:eyespin:


Not to mention, for perfect compatibility, it seems the user needs to donate part of her Linker Core to the UD.

Wasn't it more like Rein being split off from Hayate's own Linker Core? So everything Rein has came from Hayate.

So do I, but for me its a tad more complicated. Its impossible for Keroko to even unision to begin with, concidering the state of her Linker Core. It would completely destroy any UD trying to Unision with her.

That leaves Tesla...

Who is Belkan...

Ancient Belkan at that...

...

...

GAH! Windows! Windows! Must open windows!

:heh:
A Unison Device for Tesla, eh?
What'll her name be? Vectra?

You mean when she was Unisioned with Reinforce I, being pretty much über in every aspect? Sure, she already has Schwertkruez, because Reinforce I gave it to her. It was lost when Reinforce kicked the bucket, and the fragment that fell into Hayate's hand became Schwertkruez.

Pretty ironic that Hayate was more powerful when she was 9 compared to how she is now.:p

The truth hurts she'd probably have a better chance of taking Hayate with her fists IMO. :p

:heh:

Acutally the the fact she'll probably be burned to ashes by long range bombardment spells might be a bigger problem.

PF is then going to use the 'Softie Hayate' card...:uhoh:

We need to get this girl some killing intent... :mad:

Nah. Just 'Befriending' intent would do.:p

She could just blast it before gets above her or even freeze everything around her to make an "ice damn".

Like I said in an earlier post.:)

Just killing the person controlling it would be quicker and easy since she'd be focused on controlling the water.

Sharazad: Haha I'm sending a tidal wave toward that orphanage now what will you do! :mad:
Hayate: Well since you're using all your power to direct said wave and have none to spare for defense I was thinking this. *magic circles appeared all around her*
Sharazad: Oh shi--
*Hræsvelgr >>>>>>>>>>'s Sharazad and the wave dies away*
:p

'Softie Hayate'...:uhoh:
But then, what's stopping Hayate from casting 'Ice Prison'?:p

No listen well, you're weak and useless why don't you just give up now and save yourself some pain you glorified super soaker. :p

<watches as Sharazad flinches consecutively to each of Tk's statements and breaks down even more>

Oh dear...:heh:

They are villains... they are allowed, right?

<--- is trapped in a room with no idea

Saint Xverse? Why not? It's your long-running legacy of crossover fics, right?:)


And that's another tempting bait to take up the UD offer since UDs have that excuse of dual elements. :eyespin:

I'm glad I finally got over my temptation to make a Unison Device for Grandis...:heh:


So then why can Agito and Signum apparently Unison well? Or could that be attributed to Signum herself also being a computer program (or... was)

Elemental compatibility?:heh:

Like shooting Hayate with water and watching as her clothes stick to her... contours, knocking her out through excessive embarrasment :uhoh:

*runs*

Even though I feel like strangling you for suggesting that (as a Hayate-fan), I somehow approve of this scene!!! :eek:


*Aaron008R bashes LoweGear and FieryAeon with Sophia's Metal Harisen MK-III*

:frustrated::frustrated::frustrated:

In any case, I completely fail to see how that would work.:p
Her minidress is pretty much figure-hugging already. Her legs are bare in her Knight Armor. The only thing that would soak and stick is her jacket. And her fainting from embarrassment due to her jacket contouring to her shoulders does not compute.:p

Now... Let's see if this makes some imaginations run wild for me to bash into place.:p
<Hayate blushes furiously behind me>


Tk: Hypocrite.:rolleyes:

Am I allowed to swear?

That was fucking great!

Why thank you :D

Thank you... Yes, all my pics are handmade xD

And what do you mean "an OC that for once isn't from earth"?
All my OCs are not from earth! :D

:bow: :bow: Awesome, another shopper in our midst
More minions people to ask for shop work :D

:heh: Just a pet peev of mine, as recently we've had a wave of mages from Earth appearing all of a sudden, when there hundreds of worlds that can be used in the TSAB proper.

You think?
Hm... maybe I think about some more spells...
But I thought as a melee fighter she won't need much spells.
You can always think of those as you go along. I've got a a whole squad of mellee
characters and I haven't really gone into any mellee spells for them.

*Pauses from pummeling unprotected infantry with 105mm howitzer and Looks at PF funny for a few seconds* :eyebrow:

There's no such thing as overkill.
:nod: +Since all we've seen from Hayate have been Large Aoe's so it's always going to be a lot of power in the attack, regardless of numbers. Although I'd say there's a bunch of people trying to rectify that :p
Oh, thats pretty much a given. Now I'm turning on the fan to blow away the crack of giving Tesla a UD a-la Signum and Agito.

Invasion of the UD's anyone?

Pfff, UD fever was running waaay before you started that. :p
Yare, yare...
*sirens go off*
The public haxxbusters have fallen to enemy attack. All available personnel, report for duty!

Rain huh? Rains can still cause flash floods. :rolleyes:

Will read the new stuff later. Time to sleep, early for once (early for me that is :rolleyes:).
Lol... next thing we'll know that PF has underestimated his word count again and he'll dump a 10k+ short on us...:heh: Not that I mind.
Too damn much backlog for now. :uhoh:

The hell do you guys manage to keep up? And does everyone live on the other side of the world from me??? I wake up to six pages of backlog, and maybe go through two during the day. Not that it's a big thing, but...

Well I know that a lot of us live around the SE Asia region, which would account for big chunks of the backlog... although I usually go to sleep and wake up to find another page worth of posts to go over, so it's not like we all live here.

How do we keep up... Not sure about the other's, but learning to skip over the posts that aren't releveant to you is one of my methods.
Pretty nice, even if I don't have a clue what's going on. I must read the first parts.
:heh: Thanks for the comments. It's not that bad really, just a training exercise between Fate, Nanoha, Signum, Keroko, Tesla, Zafira and Shamal agaisnt 4 of my OC's Myristic, Meia, David and Juliet, all of whom are unlimmitted...

Links to the earlier parts are here (http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost.php?p=974723&postcount=869) for when you have the time to read them. :D

NAISU! That's what you call tactics! The best part was Nanoha's capture!

My only gripe is the seemingly lamentable lack of suitable tactics for the Aces' side. Considering Tesla and Fate (who knows about Myristic and the others) are with them. They should have been more prepared and organized; not just going solo or by two's.

Anyway, it was very good! Fate seemed to be the one who got hurt the most...
While Fate does know them the best, it's been a while since they've last been in a battle together. Around 8 years by my count. They may have been in contact due to the Weavers association with the Harlaown family(Chrono), but 8 years is along time to polish their team work together.

You have to remember that I was pitting a team of 4 fighters who have been involved in numerous situations together for the last 10 years, up agaisnt a team that while know each others strenghts inside and out, don't really fight together (shown in canon with the 1v1 battles).

The combo attack of the 3 knights at the beginning was successful, but they wern't prepared for the card that my OC's hold up their sleeve, the ability to launch attacks through their own shields. Getting hit point blank by what's essentially a S1 Divine buster isn't exactly the most common ways of getting countered.

Not just Fate... everyone's coming out of this heavily battered, some less than others of course. She did take a nasty hit, but the others also took equally nasty hits.

There's been no cries of haxx yet. Obviously I must be doing something right :p *runs*

Damn, I wasnt able to do much reading this weekend.


BTW, Phoenix, I know how to make Sharazad's water controlling abilities lethal... :uhoh:

If she can manipulate water at will, you could make it so that she could manipulate the water molecules inside human bodies...:uhoh::uhoh:... she would be unstoppable...:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Disclaimer: This was done in a very old anime, Tokyo Underground. Not my idea. :p


Taking a leaf out of Keroko-kun's book. IMAGE RETRIEVED!

Those are definitely burn marks.

Well, I was not denying the burn thing...just saying that the manga has way more detail. ;)

And :eek: I dont have this chapter! Could you tell me where I can get the latest chapters, please? I think I only have up till 5 translated. :)

"The series will be adapted into an upcoming anime movie divided into 7 chapters, set to be animated by ufotable (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ufotable). The first chapter will be released in December 2007 at Theatres Shinjuku."

Whether it will be fansubbed or not, is the issue here. :rolleyes:

Yeah, movies are often not fansubbed... :(

Heh, even the 2 I posted got buried in backlog, and I even asked if anyone could help me shop his eyes to black. Shiki's eyes has a tendency to turn blue when the Nanaya personality emerges. :rolleyes:

You asked? I may have missed it then... I can help you shop his eyes if recoloring is all you need. Post it again. :)

Checked moonlit world and it says,

Ren is a succubus familiar of Arcueid and her real form is a black cat. She has the power to enter other's dream. She's only mentioned in the original game to let Shiki see a wet dream, but she is the main heroine in Kagetsu Toya. It was Shiki's job to find her in the eternally looping dream, and since then, Shiki is her new master.
Before she became Arcueid's familiar, she was a familiar of an old mage. She was created out of a dead body of a cat to run errands for the mage. Because the mage was too busy in his research, they never had any conversations. The only two times the mage ever talked to her is in the beginning when he gave her name and told her that Familiars must obey an order of their master. But at the end, the mage said good bye to Ren not as a prideful mage, but as a lonely old man. The mage asked Arcueid to look after Ren after his death in exchange for his cooperation in defeating a particular dead apostle. Even though she's a small familiar, she's powerful as the mage himself. She has been able to survive for 800 years without needing to suck life energy out of (in other words, without killing any) people.
It's not that she can't talk, but it's her personality. The White Ren in Melty Blood RE-ACT is an unused selfish part of her personality that took form out of Wallachia's remain.

White-Ren to Ren is as Dark Koji is to Koji.

Very nice information! Thanks. :D I may be able to use some of this, though I wasnt intending for her to be a familiar. :heh:

On hold actually. First I need to finish up the one I'm doing, and I've gotta see how this dual/multiple elemental usage discussion goes. Then next I'm scratching my head thinking how I'm going to implement Tear's Fonic Artes into Nanohaverse. :rolleyes:

Haha, I'll be waiting for that implementation. :D

Must be getting it from SpongeBob. :heh:

:twitch: Poor guy, being called SpongeBob. :heh:

I think its instantaneously. In manga chapter 9 we see Erio's magic seemingly uncontrolled and cackling around him, I doubt he had anyone to actually teach him so it must somehow come naturally to him.

Then there's Fate's various bombardment spells, which are mostly lightning elemental based, and she summons the spell almost instantaneously.

Yeah, I was thinking along the same lines. Though at least Fate's regular spells are not entirely composed of electricity, even though they look like it; else, there wouldnt be a need for her to use Call Lightning (or whatever was that weather manipulation spell called) to defeat AMF.

Well, it seems like it, Erio in the manga, before being found by Fate, used to do it all the time.
One can do it on will, as mentoned here...

What normally requires regulation via Magic, these abilities allow conversion to occur spontaneously.


I guess this backs up the previous statement I wrote that you CAN used more elements, but you'd have to focus more than with the element you have affinity with.

Yeah. You would need to concentrate more, and probably waste more mana in the process, but still be able to do it.

Ooooh, I see...interesting :D

That explains this...
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v33/zetar0n1n/white_ren.jpg
:D

:eek: I didnt have this one! :D:D:D

I don't see why the hell not, just because she's able to throw around lightning doesn't mean she's immume to it. :rolleyes:

Haha, wait, you misunderstood. I am not denying that lightning can do that--in fact, it SHOULD, that's why since the anime has never shown such details, you would go "USO DA!" when you see the manga bringing those details up. ;)

Normal conversion tends to be long drawn out ritual spells like this one:

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y191/Liinna/Nanoha/MSLNA_02_-_04.png

So the abillity to do those things only by concentrating will be one hell of an advantage in both time, efficiency and ellement of surprise. Logically speed would depend on the strength of the spell. The more powerfull the spell, the more mana that needs conversion after all.

:nod:

Puuh, done!

AAS girly coming up!
So who ever is interested, here's Rinyas profile!


Thanks goes to PhoenixFlare for helping me with the gramma! :bow:




Name: Rinya Shuri A’Kalash
Alias: Rin
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Date of birth: March 8, MC 056
Family: Bedario Shuri A’Kalash (father), Lilira Shuri A’Kalash (mother), Rikko Shuri A’Kalash (brother)
Hair Colour: Light blue
Eye Colour: Orange

Affiliation: Time-Space Administration Bureau / Air Armament service / “Dragonfly” Squadron
Position: 2nd Lieutenant / Dragonfly 01
Wizard Ranking: AA
Magic System: Neo-Belka
Magic Colour: Green
Device: Windlanze (Armed / Spear)


Background:

Birth & Childhood:
Rinya was born on Vedir into the Shuri family of the A’Kalash tribe.
Vedir was a world covered with wide windy canyons; most of them so deep that the sunlight never reaches the bottom, thus making the Vedirians live on top of the many plateaus. It was through this planet surface that the Vedirian tribes developed a unique culture where aviation is the main way of movement and transport. So Rinya was born with the blood of aviators.

Ever since she could remember, she had always dreamt of flying. Her father, the owner and pilot of a small air-cargo freight business, trained her in flying cargo gliders so that she could later work with him and carry on the family business some day.

At the age of ten, she went to a TSAB flight show with her family. The first moment she saw the aerial mages, she knew that she wanted to fly like them in the sky, without a glider or plane.
Her father didn’t like her sudden decision and ordered her to stop the stupid thinking at once. Rinya of course, did not.

Since then, the tension within the family never vanished and at the age of twelve she left her home and joined the TSAB.

In service:
Influenced by the traditions of her home world, which reached back to ancient Belka, she chose the Belkan style of magic, even if it wasn't the best choice for someone who wanted to become an aerial mage. But, with passion and hardwork, she succeeded to enter aerial training.

While she was normally good at teamwork, the somewhat reckless nature of her attacks made it difficult for her to adapt to the ways the aerial mages fought, and she nearly dropped out of aerial training. To her luck, an instructor saw the potential of her being more of a melee attacker than a ranged combat mage. Rinya was given an instructor that taught her the fighting style of a Belka Ritter, and, considering the history of her homeworld, she was given her own Device that was created after a traditional Vedirian aerial melee weapon.

Thanks to this, Rinya was able to graduate from the training school as one of the top ranking students, as an A-ranked aerial mage.

Dragonfly:
After graduation, Rinya was assigned to the Air Armaments Service Squadron "Dragonfly", an experienced battle squadron that handled patrol and rescue missions.

Rinya's first big mission was when Dragonfly helped other units in the search for a Class-1 criminal that was detected in Central Midchilda.

Dragonfly found the fugitive, but, Rinya, who was the most inexperienced, was the first to be wounded in battle and was ordered to retreat at once. She later discovered that Dragonfly was totally wiped out.
Rinya wanted to return to battle immediately, but, for her condition, was ordered to stay behind. While she was being treated at the first-aid station, the criminal was captured.

Road to Officer:
As the only survivor of Dragonfly, Rinya was sent on leave and she visited her family on Vedir, but the still-existing tension between her and her father made her return to Midchilda quickly.
Back in service, she supported other aerial squadrons on different missions.

It was the JS incident that brought her to the attention of her superiors.
During the battle against the Saint's Cradle, Rinya was flying around the battlefield, supporting other units and engaging Drones in direct combat.
Through her bravery and quick-thinking on the field, she was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and was sent to an Officer's course, her official rank now determined as AA.

Personality:
Rinya is a bright and energetic person that some people would even call her reckless.
She can be very proud and stubborn sometimes, but this is only to hide her true feelings when she is insecure.
Rinya loves flying and is very glad she joined TSAB because of it. She still thinks very fondly of her old home, even though she is not on good terms with her father.
She also tries to see the good in people first.

Windlanze
Windlanze (Wind Lance) is a device crafted after a Vedirian wind-rider's lance.
In ancient Belka, these traditional weapons were used by Vedirian knights in aerial battles and air jousting.
Swung in fast flight, the lance could deal massive damage on impact to its target.
Windlanze is additionally equipped with a second form and a Belkan cartridge system.

Modes:
Klingenform (Blade Form):
Windlanze’s standard form is a short spear with a long blade.

Zwillingsklingenform (Twin Blade Form):
A second blade appears on the other side of the now-shortened hilt. This form is used when battling more opponents at once.



Defensive Spells:

Knight Armour:
Rinyas Knight Armour is a green and white bodysuit. Armour parts cover the upper torso, shoulders, forearms, knees and feet. The Knight Armour is designed to prefer mobility over protection.

Sturmschild (Storm Shield):
Shield spell in form of a triangle.

Windtanz (Wind Dance)
A spell that increases the casters speed and allows almost instantaneous movement.

Offensive Spells:

Luftmesser (Air Knife):
A spell that is using magic to compress and accelerate the air around the device. It enables the caster to create blades of wind and throw them at the target.

Windschnitter (Wind Reaper):
A more powerful version of Luftmesser.
This spell needs a cartridge to be activated.

Sturmangriff (Assault):
A spell that uses Windtanz as base.
Magical energy is infused into the blade of the device enhancing its ability to penetrate shields and armour. The caster is then boosted forward, allowing him a single strike with the enhanced blade.
This spell needs two cartridges to be activated.

And does anyone mind doing a Shop for me? If not that's no problem, but I can't use it myself.

Depends on what kind of shop. If its something as simple as recoloring, I may be able to help... else, might have to wait for Keroko or Lowe. :)


I'll be trying to read some stuff tonight. :heh:

LOL Yup its massive h4xx. There were so many inconsistencies in that anime thanks to those ideas... I think the producers did not know what to do with such ability after they introduced it. If I recall correctly, the guy used it once and won the battle, but then he didnt even try again later...which was weird to me. :heh:

A little random something I typed up to practice my skills, yet relevant to the OFM. Tell me what you guys think, please!



Entropy Through Order: Case Files of the Order of Freelance Mages
Prologue: Elevation

Administered World 14 - MC066- Dawn
He stood atop a skyscraper overlooking the city - the tallest one. It was the main HQ for the TSAB presence in this city, a monument to the civilians who lives here. "Peace with us," it proclaimed boldly for all to see. "Under our rule, no war will come to you. No poverty will hurt your people. Peace will reign supreme as long as you are ruled by us." At least, that's what it seemed to be, as tall as it was; a defiance against gravity. So high up, people looked like mere insects, to be crushed under a heel.

The man standing on top of the building - on top of its primary spire, to be exact - looked down as he balanced easily on one boot. His tired eyes stared down at the city's ants squirmed, moved about, and lived comfortably. They did not see what he saw, blinded by the skyscraper's loud proclaimation. Up here, all was visible to him; that there was poverty, and that peace was merely a passing dream of this sorry world. Violence reigned supreme as whoever was in charge let unhappiness reign on this world... and yet...

And yet, the citizens were convinced, totally convinced, that the man could do no wrong. They had not seen what he had been doing. Hell, the red tape covering his misdeeds would be enough to deter most anyone looking for something against the man who ran this place. But the man atop the skyscraper had seen the evidence with his own eyes when the report was laid out on his desk a week ago. He knew of the man's illegal slave trade of the homeless, the exortion he ran upon the various businesses within the city, the too-cruel police force and the lack of proper TSAB staff, the budget cuts to things like education and security with the missing money going to the man's pocket. Payoffs, bribes, "protection" in the worst sense.

A gust of wind nearly knocked the man off balance as he contemplated atop the building. He grabbed his hat as it threatened to fly off of his head while his longcoat billowed wildly behind him. The man winced as all of the wind hit him full force, then died down, as if to let him regain his balance. He wasn't ready to fall yet. It wasn't time. Dawn had just approached, and though it was his custom to complete his mission before daybreak, he needed time... time to think. Time to prepare for this mission. Time to kill a guilty man.

"Another one..." he mused to himself as he watched the city far below. "Always another one..."

Problems, sir? someone asked him. A calm, collected voice, reflecting his inner melancholy as he thought about his mission.

No problems, XO. the man responded. Just thinking is all.
I see. The ship is ready to transport you back upon successful completion of the mission. Should you require assistance, I will be there in 5 seconds.

Don't worry about it. thought the man as he unbuckled a holster on his side. I got this, XO.

Yes, sir.

The other voice went silent. The man in a longcoat pulled a weapon out of the holster on his side; a revolver - well, it resembled one. It was a gun in every way, save for where the revolving cylinder would be - instead, a green gem was mounted, suspended in the center by a series of metal rods that went from the sphere to the gun.

"Maverick," the man muttered.
[Yes, Gunslinger?]

"Default Shot, low power," the man said. "Shoot ta stun,"
[Okay.]

The man took a step forward and dropped off the spire of the building, falling to the ground below.

-

Meanwhile, less than a mile away, another man, watching the first with image enhancers, sighed and leaned back in his seat. The man, or rather, the teenager, put a hand over his eyes. "He jumped off the building. He just jumped off the building."

"Relax, Kanchou, he's got Glider Wing," someone behind 'Kanchou' said. "He'll slow his fall before the ground stops it for him." This didn't stop the young man from sighing.

"The Colonel is going to be the death of me one day," Kanchou decided. "Yare, yare..." The second man just laughed and resumed doing whatever he was doing, the soft light of the safe room glinting off of his glasses. "What's so funny, Franz?"

"Oh, nothing," the man identified as Franz said. "You're just getting flustered, is all. It's starting to amuse me,"

"...I'm glad I can amuse you so easily," Kanchou fired back. "Remind me to make a report of it for you to fill." The young man suppressed a smile as he heard his compatriot groan in despair. "It's the Law of Equal Exchange, Franz. You of all people should know that you give what you get."

"Fair enough, sir," Franz moaned. "Fair enough..."

This is Erick. A voice echoed in their minds. About to commence my mission.

Good luck. Kanchou and Franz replied simultaneously.
All right, fuckers! Say hello to my little friend!

"..." The Kanchou wondered if beating his head against the nearest wall was a viable tactical option.

-

The two Bureau mages standing guard at the front door of the TSAB building never understood how one of them went down without a sound before the other followed suit.

Erick landed hard, his Glider Wing arching out of his back in a flared position. It retracted as soon as his feet touched the ground, and before a third and fourth guard could react, he fired off two green bolts of light from his weapon, knocking them out cold. This was the low-power setting of his Device; a beam of energy more akin to a violent taser shot than a beam of energy, meant to keep a guy down for at least thirty minutes.

It would be more than ample time to worm his way to the target floor. Erick grinned as he kicked open the front door to the building with a steel-toed boot, the glass in the doors shattering as they flung on their hinges to smash violently against the wall they were connected to. Erick stepped in slowly, his clothes jingling and his hands on the gun/device itself; one hand on the hammer, the other holding it with a finger on the trigger.

"Now y'all listen here!" He shouted to the shocked onlookers in the lobby. "Y'all got five seconds to get outta here afore I start shootin'!"

No one moved.

"One!"

The lobby burst into motion as civilians and some guards bolted for the door behind Erick, brushing past him and each other in an effort to run out before the madman with the gun began to shoot. In truth, Erick had never planned on shooting the civvies - however, seeing the priceless look of sheer terror on their faces was enough to give him a small amount of amusement in an otherwise diabolical mission. Stoning his countenance, Erick started his way forward.

Erick slowly made his way to the elevators, keeping an eye out for sudden movement. He was, after all, an invader, and it wouldn't surprise him if the leader of this fine planet was already preparing to pack his stuff and leave, assuming Erick wasn't killed first. O' course... he thought. They ain't never encountered an Order mage.

The room to his immediate right opened; the stairwell door. Swinging to match the motion of the door, Erick had his Device pointed in the room before the door had finished opening, revealing a shocked and confused secretary. Erick calmed his racing heart and waved his gun toward the door, indicating that she should leave. The scared girl nodded compliance and quickly ran out of the stairwell. Taking the opposite path, Erick walked into the stairwell, coming up with a plan as he took the steps up 2 at a time.

Erick reasoned that the enemy had used his lackey guards to set up a defensive position at the elevator doors, and perhaps the stairwell. By figuring that each guard had some sort of cover, Erick figured that he would have to react extremely quickly in order to shoot all the guards and react fast enough to dodge or use his Barrier Jacket to deflect oncoming attacks. Likewise, the average Bureau guard's Barrier Jacket would probably be sufficient to deflect his low-powered shots, so he would have to use high kinetic energy to knock them out from impact or go for headshots. Assuming that there were twenty men up there, not counting if he had any Enforcers, Erick was looking at a really low chance of surviving an intial conflict.

So he'd have to find a way to subvert that and make it a winning condition.

Erick stopped on the 44th floor. One floor up would lead him to his destination, and his opponent. He grinned as something came to mind. Perfect.

Erick opened the door to the 44th floor. Being just after dawn, the upper floors had not been occupied with civilians, only guards. As there were no men on this floor (and assuming there was at least one to a floor), Erick assumed that all guards quickly moved to cover his target. A viable choice, but one that allowed for Erick's surprise attack.

Glen. he thought. Whereabouts would da guy's office be at?
Toward the north end... why?

I gotta surprise present for 'em, that's why!
Didn't we agree on holding up on the wanton destruction?!
I lied.

Erick made his way to the north side of the floor and put away his Device. As he walked, he began to concentrate and direct the flow of mana in his body to his right hand. The results were immediate; his hand began to glow with emerald power as he stopped in what he deemed a suitable position. Looking up at the ceiling, Erick couldn't help but tip his hat and grin.

Sir-

Erick cut off Glen's thought message to him as he stared at the ceiling. "Maverick, set up!"

[Sonic Move. Burst Jump.]
"Jet Magnum!" With a scream of primal fury, Erick leaped into the air and punched the ceiling. The resultant kinetic energy from his sudden speed burst plus the explosive effect of the Jet Magnum caused the ceiling to cave and burst upward, blowing apart the floor above. Erick's leap took him through the hole and right where he wanted; the main office of his target.

Without hesitating and still in mid-leap, Erick reached onto his back and unbuckled a second holster. A handle slid into his expectant hand, and from underneath his coat Erick pulled out a 12-gauge shotgun. Cocking it by rapidly moving the gun down, then up, Erick flattened his body in the air and fired a close-range blast at the shocked mage standing next to him. As expected, the Barrier Jacket took the brunt of the shot, leaving only the kinetic burst of energy from the blast and sending him backward into the wall. Cocking the gun one-handed again, Erick fell toward the hole he created and stretched out his legs and free hand, catching the edge of the hole as he fired a second blast at the other mage - an Enforcer, if Erick saw correctly - sending him head over heels into the Plexiglas wall behind him.

Erick flexed his muscles and burst out of his position in the hole, landing on the desk kneeling while pulling out his Device and pointing it at his target's head. Dropping the shotgun, Erick unholstered a standard six-shot revolver and pointed it at the door.

"Wh-what the hell?!" was all the target could think of to say. Erick grinned.
"Call off yer dogs," he drawled as rapid beating began to sound from the door; Erick had guessed the door would be locked. When the man didn't respond, he pushed the Device against the man's temple. "Now!"

"S-stop it!" The panicked man shouted toward the door. "We've got it covered!"

The beating stopped, leaving the TSAB man to shake in his seat as Erick dug the gun-Device in his temple (while keeping the revolver pointed at the door). The Order mage instantly recognized the smell of piss as the man wet himself. "Lieutenant Lanning," Erick spat the name.

"Wh-what?! What do you want from me?!" the TSAB man said, the fear in his eyes apparent.
"Yer under arrest by orders of the Time-Space Administration Bureau," Erick stated as he pulled the Device around to point at Lanning's chest as he hopped off the desk to a standing position, bringing his revolver to bear. "For exotortin' the people of this planet, to illegal slave tradin', to royally pissin' me off. Now..." Erick took a step back and pulled back the hammer on his gun. "Yeh can either go to 'Pound Me in the Ass' prison for maybe 15 years, or I can send yeh to a more permanent Hell. Make a choice, Lanning!"

Erick's stare and smirk never faltered as Lanning shook in his seat. "You... you have no proof!" He declared.

"I got all the proof right here!" Erick shouted, leveling his guns. "I'll present the evidence in court, should ya choose to come along peaceably. Otherwise, I'll be the Judge, Jury, and Executioner!"

"No! I refuse to go!" With his sudden terrified screech, Lanning pulled a Storage Device from behind the desk and fired it as he swung it to bear, sending a Stinger Ray right at Erick. The shot was dead on.

Too bad for him it missed.

"So that's how it's gunna be," Erick grumbled... from behind Lanning. "Yeh almost injured my gun." Erick twirled Maverick in his hand before holstering it. "Looks like I'll have to do this the ol' fashioned way!" Lanning was too terrified to move, as Erick had his other revolver in his neck the whole time. He almost relaxed as Erick pulled the gun back, but then screamed in pain as Erick kicked him in the back, knocking him into the desk. Erick grabbed Lanning from the collar and shoved him into the Plexiglas. "Ya just had ta fight, didn't ya?!"

Erick forced Lanning to turn around, punching him furiously in the gut and sending the TSAB official to the ground. Erick forced him to stand up and pulled out a second revolver, backing up two steps and pointing both guns at the man.

"See ya in hell, partner,"

Lanning looked up in time, dazed, to see Erick pull the trigger on both guns once. He didn't see the other ten shots as they pierced each vital organ on his body they could, killing him in the span of less than 5 seconds and crumpling his body to the floor.

Erick's guns smoked with powder as he grunted and reholstered them. "Pathetic," he muttered. Behind him, rampant beating on the door to the office began again, presumably to get in and see what had happened. Erick snorted and turned back to the body before him. "I need a drink..."

Erick saw a flash of white before his eyes, then red as a blazing lance of fire cut through the Plexiglas before slicing a large man-sized hole in it, kicking it in. Erick blinked and realized that his XO, Glen, was floating where the hole was, an impatient look on his face.

"Are we done?" He asked Erick.
"...yeah. We're done. Let's get outta here."

Glen nodded and sheathed the sword he had just used. Pushing his hands together then pulling them apart, he produced a length of fire, which he hurled at Erick. Erick caught the non-burning flame and tied it around his waist. "Let's go, XO. Oh, wait!"

Erick bent down and picked up his 12-gauge. "Now let's go."

Glen nodded again and flew backwards slowly until Erick was outside the building with his Glider Wing deployed. Erick took one last look back at the damage he had done, looked back at the 15-year old boy who had him suspended 400 feet in the air, and resigned himself to fate.

"I need a drink..." he repeated.

Lieutenant Jim Lanning of the Time-Space Administration Bureau was found guilty of extortion, illegal slave trade, and corruption. His sentence was death, which occured at an unspecified time and date. Despite rumors of a man wearing a longcoat and hat over a TSAB uniform, these reports were deemed void and erased by certain officials within the TSAB. All people involved with Lanning have since been transfered, and as of today, the case has never been discussed again.

LOL Yup its massive h4xx. There were so many inconsistencies in that anime thanks to those ideas... I think the producers did not know what to do with such ability after they introduced it. If I recall correctly, the guy used it once and won the battle, but then he didnt even try again later...which was weird to me. :heh:

:eek: Thanks a lot Liingo! :bow:

And yup, its on queue. :D I may not be able to read it until tomorrow, though, unless this NFL game starts to suck... :heh:
Probably a good thing... Otherwise all the battles would have been 5 second affairs...:uhoh:

A lieutenant? A bit low in the grand scheme of things. Not much that you would be able to do in terms of illegal activites since you wouldn't really have the authority over the things that mattered...

And, ummm, was their any reason for him to go through the building's interior instead of just going in straight through the window to begin with? Less chance of getting caught on surveillance that way. Less guards to deal with.

The use of the conventional weapons are going to raise a lot of questions, seeing that this is a TSAB admin world. There goes your black status.

The dialogue/story elements are fine, but just things to look at.

I'm glad I finally got over my temptation to make a Unison Device for Grandis...:heh:
More than a UD, I was tempted to make a familiar a few days back. Since Ren is suppose to be Shiki's familiar in Kagetsu Tohya, but oh well you beat me to it. :p


Elemental compatibility?:heh:
I have a feeling its more than just the elemental compatibility.

In any case, I completely fail to see how that would work.:p
Her minidress is pretty much figure-hugging already. Her legs are bare in her Knight Armor. The only thing that would soak and stick is her jacket. And her fainting from embarrassment due to her jacket contouring to her shoulders does not compute.:p

Now... Let's see if this makes some imaginations run wild for me to bash into place.:p
<Hayate blushes furiously behind me>


Tk: Hypocrite.:rolleyes:

:heh::heh::heh:


:heh: Just a pet peev of mine, as recently we've had a wave of mages from Earth appearing all of a sudden, when there hundreds of worlds that can be used in the TSAB proper.
I'm guilty of having one. :p


Lol... next thing we'll know that PF has underestimated his word count again and he'll dump a 10k+ short on us...:heh: Not that I mind.
I don't mind too, I'm just envious of how he can write so well. :rolleyes:


Well I know that a lot of us live around the SE Asia region, which would account for big chunks of the backlog... although I usually go to sleep and wake up to find another page worth of posts to go over, so it's not like we all live here.

How do we keep up... Not sure about the other's, but learning to skip over the posts that aren't releveant to you is one of my methods.
I mostly don't sleep long hours, so I'm often on hand to deal with backlogs. Otherwise I do what Liingo mentioned, don't read everything unless you absolutely have to.


:heh: Thanks for the comments. It's not that bad really, just a training exercise between Fate, Nanoha, Signum, Keroko, Tesla, Zafira and Shamal agaisnt 4 of my OC's Myristic, Meia, David and Juliet, all of whom are unlimmitted...
I forgot what happened in the previous chapters, but is the limiter release only for the Weavers? Because even though tactics and all is good and important, I just find it hard to swallow that they managed to beat a bunch of S class mages that (relatively) easily.


While Fate does know them the best, it's been a while since they've last been in a battle together. Around 8 years by my count. They may have been in contact due to the Weavers association with the Harlaown family(Chrono), but 8 years is along time to polish their team work together.

You have to remember that I was pitting a team of 4 fighters who have been involved in numerous situations together for the last 10 years, up agaisnt a team that while know each others strenghts inside and out, don't really fight together (shown in canon with the 1v1 battles).

The combo attack of the 3 knights at the beginning was successful, but they wern't prepared for the card that my OC's hold up their sleeve, the ability to launch attacks through their own shields. Getting hit point blank by what's essentially a S1 Divine buster isn't exactly the most common ways of getting countered.

Not just Fate... everyone's coming out of this heavily battered, some less than others of course. She did take a nasty hit, but the others also took equally nasty hits.

There's been no cries of haxx yet. Obviously I must be doing something right :p *runs*
I won't say its haxx, but I expected more than one Weaver going down. Still it was a good read, though I have the same opinion as someone did. The first person view kinda limited the scope and perspective of the battle a bit.


BTW, Phoenix, I know how to make Sharazad's water controlling abilities lethal... :uhoh:

If she can manipulate water at will, you could make it so that she could manipulate the water molecules inside human bodies...:uhoh::uhoh:... she would be unstoppable...:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Disclaimer: This was done in a very old anime, Tokyo Underground. Not my idea. :p That sounds quite haxxed. :p


Well, I was not denying the burn thing...just saying that the manga has way more detail. ;)

And :eek: I dont have this chapter! Could you tell me where I can get the latest chapters, please? I think I only have up till 5 translated. :)
That's weird. The manga thread should have all the chapters.


Yeah, movies are often not fansubbed... :(
I'm hoping they do this justice though, Kara no Kyoukai needs to be fansubbed for the greater good!


You asked? I may have missed it then... I can help you shop his eyes if recoloring is all you need. Post it again. :)
Actually I was thinking of learning it myself, because when I thought about it I didn't really want to trouble anyone. Reason being because I thought that even the uniform should be shopped, since obviously the air force doesn't let their mages wear Japanese school uniform. :rolleyes: But then I remembered that I planned him to be sort of unemployed at the official start of his story, post StrikerS.

In any case, having said all that. I'll need to hunt more images on him. >.<' Those 2 aren't clear enough somehow. Still would like it if you can help with this one (http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost.php?p=1257324&postcount=16121), thanks a lot.


Very nice information! Thanks. :D I may be able to use some of this, though I wasnt intending for her to be a familiar. :heh:
Well Itsuki can't slice lines of death or points of death either. :heh: Only the image is used really, how you create her is entirely up to you. That said, Ren is actually a powerful magus in Tsukihime universe so you might wanna keep that in mind. :)


Haha, I'll be waiting for that implementation. :D
Could take awhile though, or I might just change singing to singing arias. :eyespin:


:twitch: Poor guy, being called SpongeBob. :heh:
Hey why pity the alter ego? :heh:


Yeah, I was thinking along the same lines. Though at least Fate's regular spells are not entirely composed of electricity, even though they look like it; else, there wouldnt be a need for her to use Call Lightning (or whatever was that weather manipulation spell called) to defeat AMF.
I think the reason is that its weather manipulation. The lightning is formed in the atmosphere somehow, making it an actual lightning storm or something. Then it could be that chanting an aria even though she didn't really need to, increases the strenght of the spell? Just my thought.


Yeah. You would need to concentrate more, and probably waste more mana in the process, but still be able to do it.
And if its going to take long anyway, might as well make it a big spell. :)


:eek: I didnt have this one! :D:D:D
Hehe...dere-dere-ness only appears in White Ren, because she's more expressive. Ren is like...Nagato Yuki. :eyespin:

How did Jack get there? Anyway, nice chapter.

Same way as all the other victims. He got grabbed by one of Clio's summons as part of the second wave of missing people.

I actually thought of that too, since she is like a white mage with offensive capabilities. (Holy Lance RAWRRRR!!! Judgment!!! *cough*)

But I'm not sure if Lyrical Magic fits the concept of Fonic Artes. Although I do note that Jade doesn't need any actual singing when casting Fonic Artes, just a lot of chants/arias.

True, it does not fit the concept of fonic artes but I thought Tear sings Fonic hymns mostly. Just convert any fonic artes she has to fonic hymns. Ps, I want to see how you're going to pull of her mystic arts :)
While it's a great idea... It's on the super haxx side of things....:uhoh: So a massive vote down from me..

You can look for links in the manga thread or wait a little while I upload the new chapters for you.
ETA 11:20 gmt+8,DST.

Read my stuff :D

LOL Yup its massive h4xx. There were so many inconsistencies in that anime thanks to those ideas... I think the producers did not know what to do with such ability after they introduced it. If I recall correctly, the guy used it once and won the battle, but then he didnt even try again later...which was weird to me. :heh:

It may be super H4XX, but its still a usable idea. Maybe Sharazad can only pull water molecules out of a person very slowly, at point blank range , using a great deal of power, causing a lot of pain to the victim. If left too long on the victim
then the spell starts getting lethal.

Out of curiosity, what happens if the opposite happens? Instead of water being pull out, this time water is being forced in? Does it actually do anything, besides forcing the victim to need to pee a lot?

Fuck I meant Lieutenant-General >.< .


And, ummm, was their any reason for him to go through the building's interior instead of just going in straight through the window to begin with? Less chance of getting caught on surveillance that way. Less guards to deal with.

This is why Glen is bitching that "he just jumped off the building." What the plan is and what Erick does usually turn out to be two different things, whether or not they're perfectly tactical or not. Erick, being hotblood, has to do things sometimes in a hotblood manner; this includes going through the front door when the plan was to break in through the window and pwn the guy on the spot.

As for surveillance, my plan was all along to have TSAB HQ erase that surveillance, but what was supposed to happen didn't exactly pan out the way I meant it too.


The use of the conventional weapons are going to raise a lot of questions, seeing that this is a TSAB admin world. There goes your black status.

Haha that was an accidental plothole on my part >.< . Original draft had this occurring at 3 in the morning but I could not think of a logical reason why this would be going on at 3 in the morning.

The dialogue/story elements are fine, but just things to look at.

*nodnod* I understand. I'm still rusty at writing, considering I haven't done anything remotely... resembling writing in months. Gotta get back into the swing of things :heh: . I'll probably revise and redo this when I get better.

*Remembers in countless (local)history books the details of the water torture that St. Lorenzo Ruiz (1600-1637) had undergone in the attempt by the Japanese to make him recant his faith*

"Forced to drink until his stomach held no more, so much so that mater began to come out of every orifice of his body, more oftentimes mixed with blood, almost drowning him."

I'm guilty of having one. :p
[QUOTE/]
Nothing wrong with having 1, heck even I have 1 but when everyone decides to have 1 from earth, it kind of destroys the "we don't have mages" theory that's been paraded around in canon.
[QUOTE]
I don't mind too, I'm just envious of how he can write so well. :rolleyes:

:heh: Truth... I wish I could do that at times

I forgot what happened in the previous chapters, but is the limiter release only for the Weavers? Because even though tactics and all is good and important, I just find it hard to swallow that they managed to beat a bunch of S class mages that (relatively) easily.

I won't say its haxx, but I expected more than one Weaver going down. Still it was a good read, though I have the same opinion as someone did. The first person view kinda limited the scope and perspective of the battle a bit.

Nope, all are unlimited.

Meias S-
Juliet AA
David AA+
Myristic AAA+

While they're overclassed in terms of rankings, rankings alone isn't enough to decide the battle. In most of the cases, there was enough of the Weavers around to negate the rank advantage held, further emphasing the team v individual approach of the two opposing sides. If it had gone so far as 1v1 combat, then yes my team would have gottten slaughtered, no two ways around that.

I can't agree to the view that they were beaten easily however... Each of the fallen took multiple attacks before they were taken out of the battle, with only three of them taking such a beating that they were knocked out (fate, signum, david) All the others are just sore as hell.

Really, it could have gone either way, just that I was in charge of the whole thing... One battle isn't indicative of every single battle they would have. If they did have another one in the future, chances are that the Aces team would win as they have an idea of what to expect now.

Actually, I had planned to have Tesla smash one of them out of the sky right at the end with her long range javelin throw, but decided agaisn't it as they had pretty much won already. (this is going to get talked over in the next part, not to worry)

Point noted on the POV. That will be changing as soon as I finish this next part, going to 3rd. As I've previously said, I started it in 1st and am going to finish it in 1st.

Thanks for the comments :D

A little random something I typed up to practice my skills, yet relevant to the OFM. Tell me what you guys think, please!



Entropy Through Order: Case Files of the Order of Freelance Mages
Prologue: Elevation

Administered World 14 - MC066- Dawn
He stood atop a skyscraper overlooking the city - the tallest one. It was the main HQ for the TSAB presence in this city, a monument to the civilians who lives here. "Peace with us," it proclaimed boldly for all to see. "Under our rule, no war will come to you. No poverty will hurt your people. Peace will reign supreme as long as you are ruled by us." At least, that's what it seemed to be, as tall as it was; a defiance against gravity. So high up, people looked like mere insects, to be crushed under a heel.

The man standing on top of the building - on top of its primary spire, to be exact - looked down as he balanced easily on one boot. His tired eyes stared down at the city's ants squirmed, moved about, and lived comfortably. They did not see what he saw, blinded by the skyscraper's loud proclaimation. Up here, all was visible to him; that there was poverty, and that peace was merely a passing dream of this sorry world. Violence reigned supreme as whoever was in charge let unhappiness reign on this world... and yet...

And yet, the citizens were convinced, totally convinced, that the man could do no wrong. They had not seen what he had been doing. Hell, the red tape covering his misdeeds would be enough to deter most anyone looking for something against the man who ran this place. But the man atop the skyscraper had seen the evidence with his own eyes when the report was laid out on his desk a week ago. He knew of the man's illegal slave trade of the homeless, the exortion he ran upon the various businesses within the city, the too-cruel police force and the lack of proper TSAB staff, the budget cuts to things like education and security with the missing money going to the man's pocket. Payoffs, bribes, "protection" in the worst sense.

A gust of wind nearly knocked the man off balance as he contemplated atop the building. He grabbed his hat as it threatened to fly off of his head while his longcoat billowed wildly behind him. The man winced as all of the wind hit him full force, then died down, as if to let him regain his balance. He wasn't ready to fall yet. It wasn't time. Dawn had just approached, and though it was his custom to complete his mission before daybreak, he needed time... time to think. Time to prepare for this mission. Time to kill a guilty man.

"Another one..." he mused to himself as he watched the city far below. "Always another one..."

Problems, sir? someone asked him. A calm, collected voice, reflecting his inner melancholy as he thought about his mission.

No problems, XO. the man responded. Just thinking is all.
I see. The ship is ready to transport you back upon successful completion of the mission. Should you require assistance, I will be there in 5 seconds.

Don't worry about it. thought the man as he unbuckled a holster on his side. I got this, XO.

Yes, sir.

The other voice went silent. The man in a longcoat pulled a weapon out of the holster on his side; a revolver - well, it resembled one. It was a gun in every way, save for where the revolving cylinder would be - instead, a green gem was mounted, suspended in the center by a series of metal rods that went from the sphere to the gun.

"Maverick," the man muttered.
[Yes, Gunslinger?]

"Default Shot, low power," the man said. "Shoot ta stun,"
[Okay.]

The man took a step forward and dropped off the spire of the building, falling to the ground below.

-

Meanwhile, less than a mile away, another man, watching the first with image enhancers, sighed and leaned back in his seat. The man, or rather, the teenager, put a hand over his eyes. "He jumped off the building. He just jumped off the building."

"Relax, Kanchou, he's got Glider Wing," someone behind 'Kanchou' said. "He'll slow his fall before the ground stops it for him." This didn't stop the young man from sighing.

"The Colonel is going to be the death of me one day," Kanchou decided. "Yare, yare..." The second man just laughed and resumed doing whatever he was doing, the soft light of the safe room glinting off of his glasses. "What's so funny, Franz?"

"Oh, nothing," the man identified as Franz said. "You're just getting flustered, is all. It's starting to amuse me,"

"...I'm glad I can amuse you so easily," Kanchou fired back. "Remind me to make a report of it for you to fill." The young man suppressed a smile as he heard his compatriot groan in despair. "It's the Law of Equal Exchange, Franz. You of all people should know that you give what you get."

"Fair enough, sir," Franz moaned. "Fair enough..."

This is Erick. A voice echoed in their minds. About to commence my mission.

Good luck. Kanchou and Franz replied simultaneously.
All right, fuckers! Say hello to my little friend!

"..." The Kanchou wondered if beating his head against the nearest wall was a viable tactical option.

-

The two Bureau mages standing guard at the front door of the TSAB building never understood how one of them went down without a sound before the other followed suit.

Erick landed hard, his Glider Wing arching out of his back in a flared position. It retracted as soon as his feet touched the ground, and before a third and fourth guard could react, he fired off two green bolts of light from his weapon, knocking them out cold. This was the low-power setting of his Device; a beam of energy more akin to a violent taser shot than a beam of energy, meant to keep a guy down for at least thirty minutes.

It would be more than ample time to worm his way to the target floor. Erick grinned as he kicked open the front door to the building with a steel-toed boot, the glass in the doors shattering as they flung on their hinges to smash violently against the wall they were connected to. Erick stepped in slowly, his clothes jingling and his hands on the gun/device itself; one hand on the hammer, the other holding it with a finger on the trigger.

"Now y'all listen here!" He shouted to the shocked onlookers in the lobby. "Y'all got five seconds to get outta here afore I start shootin'!"

No one moved.

"One!"

The lobby burst into motion as civilians and some guards bolted for the door behind Erick, brushing past him and each other in an effort to run out before the madman with the gun began to shoot. In truth, Erick had never planned on shooting the civvies - however, seeing the priceless look of sheer terror on their faces was enough to give him a small amount of amusement in an otherwise diabolical mission. Stoning his countenance, Erick started his way forward.

Erick slowly made his way to the elevators, keeping an eye out for sudden movement. He was, after all, an invader, and it wouldn't surprise him if the leader of this fine planet was already preparing to pack his stuff and leave, assuming Erick wasn't killed first. O' course... he thought. They ain't never encountered an Order mage.

The room to his immediate right opened; the stairwell door. Swinging to match the motion of the door, Erick had his Device pointed in the room before the door had finished opening, revealing a shocked and confused secretary. Erick calmed his racing heart and waved his gun toward the door, indicating that she should leave. The scared girl nodded compliance and quickly ran out of the stairwell. Taking the opposite path, Erick walked into the stairwell, coming up with a plan as he took the steps up 2 at a time.

Erick reasoned that the enemy had used his lackey guards to set up a defensive position at the elevator doors, and perhaps the stairwell. By figuring that each guard had some sort of cover, Erick figured that he would have to react extremely quickly in order to shoot all the guards and react fast enough to dodge or use his Barrier Jacket to deflect oncoming attacks. Likewise, the average Bureau guard's Barrier Jacket would probably be sufficient to deflect his low-powered shots, so he would have to use high kinetic energy to knock them out from impact or go for headshots. Assuming that there were twenty men up there, not counting if he had any Enforcers, Erick was looking at a really low chance of surviving an intial conflict.

So he'd have to find a way to subvert that and make it a winning condition.

Erick stopped on the 44th floor. One floor up would lead him to his destination, and his opponent. He grinned as something came to mind. Perfect.

Erick opened the door to the 44th floor. Being just after dawn, the upper floors had not been occupied with civilians, only guards. As there were no men on this floor (and assuming there was at least one to a floor), Erick assumed that all guards quickly moved to cover his target. A viable choice, but one that allowed for Erick's surprise attack.

Glen. he thought. Whereabouts would da guy's office be at?
Toward the north end... why?

I gotta surprise present for 'em, that's why!
Didn't we agree on holding up on the wanton destruction?!
I lied.

Erick made his way to the north side of the floor and put away his Device. As he walked, he began to concentrate and direct the flow of mana in his body to his right hand. The results were immediate; his hand began to glow with emerald power as he stopped in what he deemed a suitable position. Looking up at the ceiling, Erick couldn't help but tip his hat and grin.

Sir-

Erick cut off Glen's thought message to him as he stared at the ceiling. "Maverick, set up!"

[Sonic Move. Burst Jump.]
"Jet Magnum!" With a scream of primal fury, Erick leaped into the air and punched the ceiling. The resultant kinetic energy from his sudden speed burst plus the explosive effect of the Jet Magnum caused the ceiling to cave and burst upward, blowing apart the floor above. Erick's leap took him through the hole and right where he wanted; the main office of his target.

Without hesitating and still in mid-leap, Erick reached onto his back and unbuckled a second holster. A handle slid into his expectant hand, and from underneath his coat Erick pulled out a 12-gauge shotgun. Cocking it by rapidly moving the gun down, then up, Erick flattened his body in the air and fired a close-range blast at the shocked mage standing next to him. As expected, the Barrier Jacket took the brunt of the shot, leaving only the kinetic burst of energy from the blast and sending him backward into the wall. Cocking the gun one-handed again, Erick fell toward the hole he created and stretched out his legs and free hand, catching the edge of the hole as he fired a second blast at the other mage - an Enforcer, if Erick saw correctly - sending him head over heels into the Plexiglas wall behind him.

Erick flexed his muscles and burst out of his position in the hole, landing on the desk kneeling while pulling out his Device and pointing it at his target's head. Dropping the shotgun, Erick unholstered a standard six-shot revolver and pointed it at the door.

"Wh-what the hell?!" was all the target could think of to say. Erick grinned.
"Call off yer dogs," he drawled as rapid beating began to sound from the door; Erick had guessed the door would be locked. When the man didn't respond, he pushed the Device against the man's temple. "Now!"

"S-stop it!" The panicked man shouted toward the door. "We've got it covered!"

The beating stopped, leaving the TSAB man to shake in his seat as Erick dug the gun-Device in his temple (while keeping the revolver pointed at the door). The Order mage instantly recognized the smell of piss as the man wet himself. "Lieutenant Lanning," Erick spat the name.

"Wh-what?! What do you want from me?!" the TSAB man said, the fear in his eyes apparent.
"Yer under arrest by orders of the Time-Space Administration Bureau," Erick stated as he pulled the Device around to point at Lanning's chest as he hopped off the desk to a standing position, bringing his revolver to bear. "For exotortin' the people of this planet, to illegal slave tradin', to royally pissin' me off. Now..." Erick took a step back and pulled back the hammer on his gun. "Yeh can either go to 'Pound Me in the Ass' prison for maybe 15 years, or I can send yeh to a more permanent Hell. Make a choice, Lanning!"

Erick's stare and smirk never faltered as Lanning shook in his seat. "You... you have no proof!" He declared.

"I got all the proof right here!" Erick shouted, leveling his guns. "I'll present the evidence in court, should ya choose to come along peaceably. Otherwise, I'll be the Judge, Jury, and Executioner!"

"No! I refuse to go!" With his sudden terrified screech, Lanning pulled a Storage Device from behind the desk and fired it as he swung it to bear, sending a Stinger Ray right at Erick. The shot was dead on.

Too bad for him it missed.

"So that's how it's gunna be," Erick grumbled... from behind Lanning. "Yeh almost injured my gun." Erick twirled Maverick in his hand before holstering it. "Looks like I'll have to do this the ol' fashioned way!" Lanning was too terrified to move, as Erick had his other revolver in his neck the whole time. He almost relaxed as Erick pulled the gun back, but then screamed in pain as Erick kicked him in the back, knocking him into the desk. Erick grabbed Lanning from the collar and shoved him into the Plexiglas. "Ya just had ta fight, didn't ya?!"

Erick forced Lanning to turn around, punching him furiously in the gut and sending the TSAB official to the ground. Erick forced him to stand up and pulled out a second revolver, backing up two steps and pointing both guns at the man.

"See ya in hell, partner,"

Lanning looked up in time, dazed, to see Erick pull the trigger on both guns once. He didn't see the other ten shots as they pierced each vital organ on his body they could, killing him in the span of less than 5 seconds and crumpling his body to the floor.

Erick's guns smoked with powder as he grunted and reholstered them. "Pathetic," he muttered. Behind him, rampant beating on the door to the office began again, presumably to get in and see what had happened. Erick snorted and turned back to the body before him. "I need a drink..."

Erick saw a flash of white before his eyes, then red as a blazing lance of fire cut through the Plexiglas before slicing a large man-sized hole in it, kicking it in. Erick blinked and realized that his XO, Glen, was floating where the hole was, an impatient look on his face.

"Are we done?" He asked Erick.
"...yeah. We're done. Let's get outta here."

Glen nodded and sheathed the sword he had just used. Pushing his hands together then pulling them apart, he produced a length of fire, which he hurled at Erick. Erick caught the non-burning flame and tied it around his waist. "Let's go, XO. Oh, wait!"

Erick bent down and picked up his 12-gauge. "Now let's go."

Glen nodded again and flew backwards slowly until Erick was outside the building with his Glider Wing deployed. Erick took one last look back at the damage he had done, looked back at the 15-year old boy who had him suspended 400 feet in the air, and resigned himself to fate.

"I need a drink..." he repeated.

Lieutenant Jim Lanning of the Time-Space Administration Bureau was found guilty of extortion, illegal slave trade, and corruption. His sentence was death, which occured at an unspecified time and date. Despite rumors of a man wearing a longcoat and hat over a TSAB uniform, these reports were deemed void and erased by certain officials within the TSAB. All people involved with Lanning have since been transfered, and as of today, the case has never been discussed again.

Case Closed
Is the TSAB declaration in the first paragraph suppose to be that? Or is it the doing of the late Jim Lanning?

I think the reason is that its weather manipulation. The lightning is formed in the atmosphere somehow, making it an actual lightning storm or something. Then it could be that chanting an aria even though she didn't really need to, increases the strenght of the spell? Just my thought.

I think you nailed it. You don't just mess around with the weather for fun. Fate's chanting the aria might not be to increase the power but to make she she does not screw up the local weather patterns with her little lightning storm. Also, "When you start tampering with the weather, you're putting your hands on the most powerful forces in the world." (Beldin, Enchanters' end game, David Eddings). Screwing up even slightly is a bad, bad idea.

@ Kagerou
A lieutenant? A bit low in the grand scheme of things. Not much that you would be able to do in terms of illegal activites since you wouldn't really have the authority over the things that mattered...

If we follow my Retcon Senario, which I posited but have not confirmed, then there are at least 3 flag officers who're watching the OFM's backs: Lindy, who's under the impression that they're a bunch of secret do-gooders (an impression that O'Neill and Erick reinforce), Leti, who has more in-depth knowledge of what they do and is more practical, going "There are things I don't want to know," and O'Neill, who's AF and using the OFM as a template for AFSOC...

Kagerou: Storywise... yeah, just the stuff that Liingo mention. Other than that....

*chuckles* This is our Order. ^___^ Franz and glasses; must be some sorta meme. Tinted glasses, clear glasses....

*snap* That's how Naomi gets his attention. She'll become a GAR tsundere meganekko. <.<

*Pauses from pummeling unprotected infantry with 105mm howitzer and Looks at PF funny for a few seconds* :eyebrow:

There's no such thing as overkill.

Agreed. Curiously, Last night, after replaying Death From Above in Arcade Mode, I had this dream of the TV operator's view... as the AC-130 attacks Gadget Drones. :heh:

True, it does not fit the concept of fonic artes but I thought Tear sings Fonic hymns mostly. Just convert any fonic artes she has to fonic hymns. Ps, I want to see how you're going to pull of her mystic arts :)
I'll have to go through the 2nd play through first, I haven't seen how her 2nd Mystic Arte and the extension for Innocent Shine works.


It may be super H4XX, but its still a usable idea. Maybe Sharazad can only pull water molecules out of a person very slowly, at point blank range , using a great deal of power, causing a lot of pain to the victim. If left too long on the victim
then the spell starts getting lethal.

Out of curiosity, what happens if the opposite happens? Instead of water being pull out, this time water is being forced in? Does it actually do anything, besides forcing the victim to need to pee a lot?
I assure you, with enough water forced in, you'll do more than just pee a lot. :rolleyes:


Nothing wrong with having 1, heck even I have 1 but when everyone decides to have 1 from earth, it kind of destroys the "we don't have mages" theory that's been paraded around in canon.
I personally see it as, a couple emerge in a span of a few decades. But that's stretching things. :heh: Think of it like a pool of power, genetics traversing generations and not appearing till a suitable "candidate" appears (a la YuYu Hakusho). Though I don't think its that Earth is said to not have mages, but lacks mages.


:heh: Truth... I wish I could do that at times
We all do. :nod:


Nope, all are unlimited.

While they're overclassed in terms of rankings, rankings alone isn't enough to decide the battle. In most of the cases, there was enough of the Weavers around to negate the rank advantage held, further emphasing the team v individual approach of the two opposing sides. If it had gone so far as 1v1 combat, then yes my team would have gottten slaughtered, no two ways around that.

I can't agree to the view that they were beaten easily however... Each of the fallen took multiple attacks before they were taken out of the battle, with only three of them taking such a beating that they were knocked out (fate, signum, david) All the others are just sore as hell.

Really, it could have gone either way, just that I was in charge of the whole thing... One battle isn't indicative of every single battle they would have. If they did have another one in the future, chances are that the Aces team would win as they have an idea of what to expect now.

Actually, I had planned to have Tesla smash one of them out of the sky right at the end with her long range javelin throw, but decided agaisn't it as they had pretty much won already. (this is going to get talked over in the next part, not to worry)

Point noted on the POV. That will be changing as soon as I finish this next part, going to 3rd. As I've previously said, I started it in 1st and am going to finish it in 1st.

Thanks for the comments :D
Yeah I can understand your points, just a bit surprised at the result of the fight.


I think you nailed it. You don't just mess around with the weather for fun.

Oh ho? You've read the Belgariad series? Yes, that is a very valid point. The whole world's weather patterns were thrown off for months when Garion decided to do his impromptu demonstration in the Mallorean series. :heh: I'm not sure if Nanohaverse would bother considering such things, but we can assume that they do and that the aria stabilizes the spell to not affect local weather patterns.


@Saint X: I don't mean forcing water into the digestive system, I mean forcing water molecules into every part of the body. what happens then?
Molecules might start breaking? Ask PF, he's the biology student here.

And the impression would have been held that he dual wields two devices at one go until you clarified this though I do remember Jeno only using one in his intro. It's better to put such info out in the open first to avoid misunderstandings.



He could duel wield, it's just not his regular style.

I'm thinking of something like,

Lightning + Fire = Plasma

Covenant's kind of plasma.



5mins for any offensive spell is very long even considering a large mana pool, much less the more taxing buster and bombardment spells of the bigger list.



Oh wait, my bad, I read it has the time need to cast a spell :heh:

So this is what happens when you type with a fever...



Field much like the ygo concept though I would think this falls under the area of special kinds of barriers.

That's because it is the YGO concept -_-



Get to bed then! :mad:

*throws pajamas onto Chaos and kick him into bed*


:p

Don't bother, by the time I finished my last post, the temperature was already 40 degs, I couldn't move even if I wanted to... =_=


No long arias? :eek::eek:

B..but... THAT'S UNNATURAL!

:joke:

My Aria is the unNatural.



'Doctor, I have a great and terrible emotional wound, its keeping me up at night, what should I do?'

'Start drinking, and don't stop untill things get better. Or black.'

But be sure to bring very trustworthy company that have deep and generous pocket.



No Fate. That alone will make the Legion go bananas.

They can't be that shallow...

... Could they :uhoh: ?



Says the one defending obvious H4XX.

No, we're just misunderstanding each other =_=



Huh, I thought that was different forms for the same device.

Well now you know =_=



Actually, five minutes was more for the 'standard' ones. Big spells equall big drain. Channeling those types would be bellow five minutes.

Like I've said, my bad, I thought you were refering to the cast time =_=

But in that case, I'll say he could only continuosly fire for 3mins on average.



Te.. Then what the hell are you doing arguing here? Shoo, shoo, off to bed. We can always finish this later.

@_@ @_@ @_@ @_@


K.O-ed



Magical nukes, no, but like I said elemental spells have -without a conversion abillity- always been chanted.

Cs8xBZG4mxk


Nope, Eternal Coffin was ritual as well. Chrono does a chant, albeit a short one, before launching the attack.


Or just spew seemingly random lines like Margery Daw... >.>

Patch 1.3

The following changes have been made.

Pure Magic:


- Summoned Swords remains the same.
- Devil's Checkmate remains the same.
- Both Serrated Spiral and Serrated Cross has been intergrated into one.

**New Spell**

Serrated Fangs:

A mid-to-long range versatile projectile spell depending on how it is to be used.

-> Arc: The projectile takes the form of a 'C'-shape. Has increased speed, as well as cutting properties. Commonly used as a long-range, high speed spell to chase down enemies.

-> Spiral: The project takes the shape of a twirling spiral when the user spins it while casting. Commonly used to tear apart large numbers of enemies packed together at mid-range.

-> Cross: Unlike the previous two, this variation consist of two fangs instead of one. The first is modified for increased impact and durability, while the second is altered for a dramatic increase in velocity, at the cost of it's 'lifespan'. This spell could only be used at close or 'short'-mid-range as it's acceleration period dies out fast. This spell is commonly used for defense breaking.


Lightning:

- Sacred Edge remains the same.
- Raigeki remains the same.

- Maelstorm Superior could now also be used at close and mid range like Maelstorm Inferior. Maelstorm Ultimate remains the same.

- Rip.Steel.Soul. remains the same.
- Heaven's Drive remains the same.
- Kyutenougenraiseifukatenson remains the same.

- Lord of Vermilion is removed.


Fire:

- Hellion's Break now also burns on both physical and magical objects.

~,~,~,~,~,~,~,~,~,~,~,~,~,~,~,~

*Shrugged*

Straight-out non-stop firing? Ten minutes or so.

...Does Reiji need to teach you the rules of HAXX?

Patch 1.2

The following changes have been made after a good night's sleep.

And one thing that slipped people's mind. ON his own, Jeno only can use pure magic. Lightning or fire could only be used when his device comes out.


Pure Magic:

- Serrated Force has been removed
- Serrated Edge has been removed
- Serrated Spiral 's manual control function has been removed, is now mid-range.
- Serrated Cross remains the same.
- Summon Swords' range has been increased to long range.
- Devil's Checkmate, is not longer considered an attack. Physical description and function has been changed to make things easier to understand for humans.

"Just like Chrono's struggle bind, just abit stronger in terms of durability."

The exception is that it could only be cast manually. When latched on, it would slowly use the target's magic to substain itself. It has a 'Hibernation' function that reduces it's durability to substain itself longer.



Lightning spells:

- Sacred Edge now leaves a tell-tale stream whenever the weapon moves.
- Raigeki remains the same.
- Maelstorm Inferior could also be used as a melee spell, the subsequent bigger versions still remains long range.
- Rip. Steel. Soul. remains the same.
- Heaven's drive remains the same. Is considered a power-up version of Sacred Edge.
- Lord of Vermilion remains the same.
- Kyutenougenraiseifukatenson remains the same. Is considered a power-up version of Raigeki.


Fire spells:

- Hellion's break does not require a physical contact to release now.
- Sons of the Firelord has been removed.
- Sulfurion Firestorm Crisis has been removed.

This is good - an improvement towards a less-haxxed Jeno.


That much is enough. Thanks.:D



No problem...

Me: You're being a softie again, Hayate?!:mad:
Hayate: Uuu~...:upset:

Anyway, it does somewhat compute she can be considered the 'Princess' of the Yaten no Sho as well.:p


I think you're starting to make Hayate grow on me... I wanna pat her head a la Aurion now...


Although it seems that Belka healing magic does have some effect, hence why he spends time with Shamal every once in a while. ;)

Speaking of which...

...how's ShamalPhanan coming along? If they need a boost, I can give it to them in LegendS...


WHY KEROKO WHY?! WHY DO YOU HATE ME :upset:?! IS IT BECAUSE I'M A GUY?! CAN YOU NOT ACCEPT ME FOR WHO I AM?! CAN YOU NOT UNDERSTAND MY FEELINGS :frustrated: ?!? NO WAIT, IT'S BECAUSE I'M YELLOW, ISN'T IT :mad: !!!


It's probably also because you're a massive pervert.


Like shooting Hayate with water and watching as her clothes stick to her... contours, knocking her out through excessive embarrasment :uhoh:

*runs*




*Aaron008R bashes LoweGear and FieryAeon with Sophia's Metal Harisen MK-III*

:frustrated::frustrated::frustrated:

In any case, I completely fail to see how that would work.:p
Her minidress is pretty much figure-hugging already. Her legs are bare in her Knight Armor. The only thing that would soak and stick is her jacket. And her fainting from embarrassment due to her jacket contouring to her shoulders does not compute.:p

Now... Let's see if this makes some imaginations run wild for me to bash into place.:p
<Hayate blushes furiously behind me>

Well, it had been a hectic weekend I went through. The work application, the exam, the stress..... I wish I had a healthy dose of Carim service vitamin today. :upset: :upset:

Anyway, to those who had read and reviewed my stories so far, I thank you for the reception. Your support is the kind I will cherish the most. :nod:

@ Erio: sorry, I must have missed the reviews back there. :uhoh:

And since I won't be tackling t3h backlog today, I present you with my opening post of the week instead. :nod:

He opened his eyes.

For a while, he thought he was at heaven. The mural painting on the ceiling, the echoing hymns, and the shadowy figure of Virgin Mary across the room. He stayed idle, unsure of whether it was a dream or something else because he no longer felt the pulsating pain in his body. He also felt marvellously at peace, being embraced by the radiant atmosphere of the unknown place.

Someone turned the door knob.

He turned to the left. A woman in black clothing was entering the room. It might be one of the angels, he pondered.

“You have finally woken up.”

He looked up at the woman. He was awed. As warm as the morning sun, a pair of auburn eyes was staring down at him in affection. He gazed into the radiant eyes, long enough for the owner of the warm gaze to smile.

“Good morning. May God bless your day.”

He did not know what was really going on, because involuntarily his left hand reached for the hands that were holding a rosary. The hands clasped his palm, and the smile was staring into began to widen.

“Where… am I?”

“You are safe now,” the woman answered, her voice a soft bell ringing in his ears. “You don’t have to worry.”

He examined the woman closer. The calm expression of the heart-shaped face was convincing enough for him to believe in her. The brunette hair was swaying down her face, touching his arm as she bent down to him.

“Are you… one of the angels?”

The woman chuckled. Somehow, the beautiful voice she possessed was soothing, the perfect remedy for tranquillity he badly needed. “An angel wouldn’t be wearing glasses, would she?” she asked.

He blushed. “I’m sorry. I thought I was in heaven, because I was supposed to be… dead out there.”

The woman smiled and put her hand on his chest, which he had realized was wrapped in bandages. “But you didn’t. God was Graceful to give you the second chance of living,” she uttered. “Besides, you won’t have bandages on your body once you ascend to Heaven.”

“I’m still alive…” he murmured, and was stirred by the warmth of her touch that was seeping into his face. “But how did you…”

“The children found you lying on the snow on the way to this monastery,” she said. “They brought you here in time before the blizzard arrived. You would have perished in the coldness if they didn’t find you.”

He tried getting up, feeling all dizzy after lying on the bed for an indefinite amount of time. “I only remembered looking for a magnolia tree, and then…” The woman laughed at the answer, and he turned to her in curiosity. “What are you… laughing at?”

“Magnolia tree in the middle of Siberian wilderness? You have got to be dreaming, haven’t you?”

He frowned. What an embarrassing statement, he pondered. “I’m sorry. I… I had been travelling… and I was thinking I would be losing my sense of direction,” he said.

“You don’t have to apologize,” she assured as her laugh was fading. “It must have been a fated encounter between us.” She touched his face again. “Of course, I will not question you on events that had brought you here.”

He cried. He did not understand why he was crying, or why he was acting like a man with a heart severely broken. The woman did nothing but wipe the tears off his face, not noticing that the pain returned to throb his chest.

“Did I hurt your heart with my speeches?” the woman asked.

“You didn’t,” he replied. “It was just… I…” He was calmed when the woman dried the last of his tears. “Thank you, Sister…”

“You don’t have to thank me, sir,” the woman answered. “It’s my duty to help those in needs.”

They heard cheers coming from the outside. “The children have arrived,” she said and walked to the door. “I have to prepare tonight’s dinner for them. Please excuse me.”

“Hey, wait.” The woman halted, and turned back to see him. “If you’re really this generous, then… please tell me your name.”

The woman chuckled. “That’s right. We haven’t known each other’s name, have we?” She corrected her posture and brought her hair behind her shoulders. “I’m Patricia Popovsky. What’s your name?”

“Hikki…” It was all he could tell her. “Just… Hikki.”

“I’m very pleased to meet you, Mister Hikki,” Patricia spoke and bowed before leaving him. He said nothing anymore, just a disturbing silence that followed. Patricia. A beautiful name to match a beautiful woman.

He winced again. The pain was pounding his chest without mercy. It was very agonizing, as if his heart was stabbed by a thousand spikes. When he finally overcame it, he was so tired he collapsed onto the bed and closed his eyes.

“Patricia…”

Night arrived. He had woken up when snow was falling outside the monastery. He looked outside, noticing how the glass panels were covered with snowflakes and crystallized ice. It was quiet, and he was expecting the occupants to be asleep.

“Ave Maria, gratia plena...”

It was faint, but he could clearly hear it. Someone was singing in the middle of the night, and his first guess was Patricia. Moving slowly to prevent the bandages from coming off, he walked to the congregation hall, finding his way through the dimly lit alley.

“Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus... et benedictus fructus ventris...”

He arrived at the hall. There she was, standing in front of the altar, shun by the small chandelier above her, singing the praising song of Virgin Mary. He remained still, not wanting his presence to disturb her concentration, not wanting her beauty to slip his sight.

Patricia stopped. She had noticed his presence. Turning to him, she carved a smile that was as sweet as it had been when he first saw it. “I’m sorry. I didn’t know you were watching.”

He took a seat on the bench. “Your voice woke me up,” he said.

She blushed. “Was my voice too loud? I’m sorry if it disturbed your privacy, Mister Hikki.”

He shook his head. “In fact, your voice had cured my illness,” he spoke. “Well… almost.”

Patricia chuckled and sat next to him. “I’m very pleased to hear that. How’s your pain?”

“Receding,” he answered. “I never thought I could travel all the way across Siberia with gunshot in my chest.”

“You mean this?” Patricia said and showed him an intact 9mm bullet. “The doctor took it out during the operation. He said it was a lucky shot, because it had missed your heart by half an inch.”

He took the bullet. He was appalled when a flash of memory struck his mind, and felt mocked by destiny that was making fun of his life. “Claes…” He clenched the bullet and shook his head in disbelief. “You didn’t… kill me…”

“Was the person who fired the bullet important to you?” He could only nod. “I’m sorry. I didn’t know.”

“I was guilty to force her to fire the gun in the first place…” he whimpered. “I thought it was the best way to end the friendship between us, but…”

“Here. Let me help.” Patricia took the bullet and attached it on a necklace before tying it around his neck. “I may not know what happened between you and her, but I’m sure God will forgive you for the sins you committed.”

“Do you think so?”

Patricia smiled. “Mister Hikki, I never lose my faith in Him.”

“Even if I had killed many innocent souls and committed crimes no normal person could forgive… do you think I still have the chance of redemption?”

“Of course you have,” she said and softly held his hand.

“But I’m alone… how am I supposed to overcome this solitude?” he replied, again stirred by the gentle warmth of the touch.

Patricia chuckled. “You’ll never be alone how many times you’re telling yourself you are,” she spoke.

The chuck struck ten times. Both of them looked at the Tsar-era wall-mounted clock. “Oh, dear. I must not wake up late for tomorrow’s morning prayers.” Patricia excused herself and made haste to her room. “Oh, yes. Are you planning to leave tomorrow?”

He was dumbfounded. What kind of question was that? “I don’t have anywhere to go. Why?”

There was a relief on her face as she heard the answer. “I’m going out to buy some groceries, and I thought I could ask for some extra hands.”

“Is it for the children?”

She nodded. “The monastery offers free lunch and dinner for them three times a week.”

He took a deep breath. “I see if I can help.”

“Thank you so much, Mister Hikki.” She headed to the alley but stopped when he called her again. “Yes, Mister Hikki?”

“Drop the suffix, please,” he spoke. “I’d rather be a modest person.”

She smiled. “Alright, Hikki. I will.”

She left him. Again. He was alone in the cold night, wondering of where he would be going next. If there was such a thing. He glanced at the bullet amulet and asked himself of how terrible it would have been if the children did not find him, or if the slug penetrated his heart. Whatever it was, he owed the kind woman for saving his life.

“Ave Maria…”

He remembered. The gunslingers and the protégés. They used to sing the choir before the Christmas party. It was fun to see the many looks of their face as Chief Natalya was teaching them. Triela’s protest when Hillshire booed her for her bad singing, Henrietta’s timid blush when Giuseppe complimented them, Claes’ warm smile when Mariel and Elsa asked her to help them.

Now it was just a memory of a distant past.

“Will I ever be forgiven for all the crimes I had done?”

Oh oh, Phoenix, here is another one, courtesy of the same guy :heh:: He controls a rather small mass of water to completely surround his victims...to drown them in mid air... :uhoh::uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

:heh:

Maybe I'll just shup up now. :p :heh:



BTW, sorry for not being able to read long pieces right now. I'll surely be able to read some tomorrow at work. :)


Probably a good thing... Otherwise all the battles would have been 5 second affairs...:uhoh:

Chapter 9

That's up to the latest translated chapter. Enjoy :D

Haha, yup. The idea is pretty interesting, but one that would render this guy unbeatable. :heh:

And THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Liingo-sama!!! :bow::bow::bow::bow:

:D

Oh crap, I just checked and I'm also missing chapter 5... Sorry to bother you again, but could you also upload that one? :D

That sounds quite haxxed. :p

:nod: No kidding. :heh:

That's weird. The manga thread should have all the chapters.

Ah, I dont visit any other thread besides this one. :heh:

I'm hoping they do this justice though, Kara no Kyoukai needs to be fansubbed for the greater good!

Sounds quite good from all you've said here! :D

Actually I was thinking of learning it myself, because when I thought about it I didn't really want to trouble anyone. Reason being because I thought that even the uniform should be shopped, since obviously the air force doesn't let their mages wear Japanese school uniform. :rolleyes: But then I remembered that I planned him to be sort of unemployed at the official start of his story, post StrikerS.

In any case, having said all that. I'll need to hunt more images on him. >.<' Those 2 aren't clear enough somehow. Still would like it if you can help with this one (http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost.php?p=1257324&postcount=16121), thanks a lot.

OK you just wanted his eyes black, right? Like this?

http://img101.imageshack.us/img101/3899/itsuki01v3zk4.jpg

Well Itsuki can't slice lines of death or points of death either. :heh: Only the image is used really, how you create her is entirely up to you. That said, Ren is actually a powerful magus in Tsukihime universe so you might wanna keep that in mind. :)

Ah, yes. :heh: She will be quite different from her Tsukihime counterpart. I did want to know how to use White Ren, though, if I am going to use her. ;)

Could take awhile though, or I might just change singing to singing arias. :eyespin:

Haha, no problem. ;)

I think the reason is that its weather manipulation. The lightning is formed in the atmosphere somehow, making it an actual lightning storm or something. Then it could be that chanting an aria even though she didn't really need to, increases the strenght of the spell? Just my thought.

Well, apparently her regular Lightning spells (the ones that come out of her, basically) are mostly composed of magic, and partially of lightning elemental. Or it could even be that the "lightning elemental" that is part of her spells is actually a property that magic is trying to emulate. That's why those attacks, while they look like elemental attacks, are still canceled by AMF, since they are mainly composed of magic. And thus she needs to use weather manipulation spells instead, which would conjure pure lightning elemental energy. ;)

And if its going to take long anyway, might as well make it a big spell. :)

Exactly. Might as well use all that energy up in a non-elemental spell. That is, if the attack is only supposed to do damage. ;)

Hehe...dere-dere-ness only appears in White Ren, because she's more expressive. Ren is like...Nagato Yuki. :eyespin:

Are they the same person, or being, though?

It may be super H4XX, but its still a usable idea. Maybe Sharazad can only pull water molecules out of a person very slowly, at point blank range , using a great deal of power, causing a lot of pain to the victim. If left too long on the victim
then the spell starts getting lethal.

Out of curiosity, what happens if the opposite happens? Instead of water being pull out, this time water is being forced in? Does it actually do anything, besides forcing the victim to need to pee a lot?

Well, if I recall correctly, the idea behind this is that our bodies are mostly composed of water molecules, and so this guy is such a powerful Water user that he is even able to control those molecules. He doesnt exactly pull water out of his victims, or the opposite... he controls them to basically grab his victims and strangle them somehow from the inside... :heh: Its basically a grab skill, I guess, but a very lethal one. It also drains quite a lot of energy.

Another interesting note about this guy, is that he could also change the composition of his water attacks so that lightning could not be conducted through them... :uhoh:

Sharazad is suddenly becoming quite powerful... :uhoh:

Somehow, I wanted Chapter 4 to have more content... and yet somehow, writing this part sapped away all my desire to do so.



Mai.

I know you hate me right now. Loathe me with all your soul. Despise me with every inch of hate you can muster, more than at anytime in your life.

You truly hate me.

You hate me for holding you back, for snatching away your dreams when it was within your reach, and crushing it under my boot.

You loathe me for my coldness, the sharp edge in my voice, my insensitivity.

And you’ll despise me, because I am me.

I would be really grateful if you weren’t angry at me, but I cannot allow your hate to subside without realizing why I acted as I did, why I made my decision.

For your hate is your pain, and your pain will be that which shall teach you what I want you to learn. The same pain that has taught me and my brother what we had to do in this cruel life.

A life that despite it’s troubles, its miseries, its sufferings, its hardships and pains, is a life you must live, a life you shall live to the best of your abilities.

For along with the darkness, this life shines with the light of joy, of happiness, of minute pleasures and short-lived ecstasies that add up to a wonderful time.

Most of all, your life shines with the light of love.

The love of your colleagues who rely on your talents and gifts, who shall always watch your back from the sidelines so you can move one step closer.

The love of your friends who shall support you in your times of need, who shall be the laugh in your smiles, the shoulders you cry on, who shall help you stand up when you fall.

The love of your older brothers, me and Wes, who cares only for your well-being, and puts you first and foremost in our thoughts, as your instructors, as your guardians, as your elder brothers.

And…

The love that I carry for you. This love I have, which slowly destroys itself at the thought of seeing you hurt like this.

Of seeing you suffer because of my words, of seeing you crying and miserable.

The love that wants me to stop this punishment and apologize for cruelty, my madness.

This same love that put you through this ordeal, because I cannot allow you to make the same error again… an error that could take you away from us…

Take you away from me…

Take away your life.

This is the love that I cannot tell you right now, as much as my heart aches to do so.

Not until you realize what you need to do.

Until you realize your mistake.

I only hope…

No, I know you are strong enough to bear this. And that in time, your strength shall see you through this lesson I must teach you.

And when the time comes that I personally confront you on this matter, I hope that my message reaches you.

-----

A click on the recorder, and the soliloquy was over. No more words were to be said to her. Only that vast, distant and melancholy space that hung in the air.

He turned to his brother, and dried his tears.

“Let’s go Wes.”

“Ah. Indeed.”



All other questions will be revealed next chapter.
Damn it! Where;s the next chapter? :frustrated: :frustrated: :uhoh:

------------

So, we get to see Hikki's past now? It's very interesting, but as what Lowe said, poor Claes.:upset:
:upset: I didn't really mean to make Claes a tragic figure in Hikki's life, but she was fortunate to not face her death. :upset:

Snippet Time

I can't believe this chapter, despite its short length, took me that much longer to write.

Here's the continuation to my previous chapter.



Cranagan City Outskirts: Residential Districts
2058 hours.

It was a quaint little place, sandwiched in the middle of other similar places in the row of houses that occupied this side of the street, so conforming, and so typical. An unassuming and simple ranch bungalow, dark and seemingly unoccupied, its appearance illuminated only by the nearby streetlamp.

Inside that house, that light was all Gwen required, sitting by the edge of her humble bed in her small, silent room, watching the rain continue to pour outside...

A soft sniffle broke the silence, and her attention was captured by her charge, her young friend whose head laid on her lap. The girl with silky long black hair, and her soft, sleeping face, with an almost angelic expression, seemingly unknown to the worries of this world.

Except for the stain of tears that ran down her cheeks.

Another sniffle and Gwen responded with a slow, gentle stroke of her petite hands through the girl’s hair.

Even in sleep, the pain still lingered.

And Gwen’s empathies found it unbearably difficult to witness.

To see Mai so hurt, so miserable, so broken, to see one of her dearest friend’s anguish to this degree. A tortured soul who can only shed her agonies through her warm, salty tears.

Her heart suffered as much as Mai’s suffered. And Mai’s pain was her own as well.

A burden she gladly carried, a pain she suffered unconditionally, if this was required of her to ease her friend’s distress, no matter how seemingly fruitless or futile.

For if there was one thing she could not stand to see exist in this world, it was pain in a friend’s soul.

Especially pain caused by the acts of another.

“… Remi no… baka…” Mai murmured. Slowly, sadly, the subconscious revelation of a sad girl unconscious.

“I know.” Gwen replied softly, even though her words would not reach their intended recipient. Words that hung in the cool, damp air, claiming the silence for herself, as she thought about certain coincidences.

It was a good thing Gwen had been here when she did, called back here to Midchilda by an anonymous note, she had been preparing herself for what was presumably another mission by her employers. Pending their forthcoming orders, she had made herself comfortable here.

No, this place was already that, here in this small ranch bungalow along Pine Street, one of many such similar houses along this street, a common bungalow amongst uncountable others like it. And yet for her, this place was most than just a run-of-the-mill house.

Once, this was home.

This was a most familiar place to her; for three years she had lived here along with the other significant people in her life – her sisters by fate, Iris, Natalia and Ashelyn, and other companions from her current employers, most notably Cyrille. This simple house was a shelter from the turmoil and stress of the missions they undertook, the assignments they endured. It was an oasis of souls, where their bodies found rest, and their minds eased of all their troubles and worries. Amidst the confusion and uncertainty, here in this humble refuge did all of them find the most valuable, yet most fleeting of all human needs: Peace.

Here in this house, they were neither mere experiments nor employers. Neither weapons, nor servants to a higher power.

They were themselves. They were friends. They were sisters.

Most of all, they were family.

Though they no longer resided under its roof, the safehouse was still there, available, with its doors ever willing to provide them a shelter when in need.

All of them. Including Mai.

‘I wanted to see you.’

She recalled Mai’s words as she comforted her on the alleyway under the pouring rain, holding her by those cold shoulders, leading her destitute heart into refuge.

Gwen could not imagine what would’ve happened to Mai had she not been there. Had she not been here in this circumstance, walking out in the rain to grab some supplies for her own extended stay. Would Mai have been left alone, drenched in the cold, bitter rain, waiting for solace that would never come? A soul abandoned in the wet asphalt alley, consumed by the emptiness of the night? Cowering in anguish and despair?

None of that mattered now. She could only be glad that fate had not dealt them a more severe hand.

She was here, here for the weeping girl on her lap, the anguished soul of a sister in need.

In need of care, in need of protection. In need of counsel, and in need of-

*Brrrrrrrrrr*

- Nourishment.

The young redhead could only manage a wan smile at her hungry charge, as she gently lifted Mai’s head off her lap and unto a pillow, lest she disturb the young maiden’s sleep.

She softly stroked her friend’s hair once again.

“I won’t take long Mai.” She whispered in her ear.

And left her with a kiss on the forehead for reassurance.

“I’ll be right back.”

And since I won't be tackling t3h backlog today, I present you with my opening post of the week instead. :nod:

He opened his eyes.

For a while, he thought he was at heaven. The mural painting on the ceiling, the echoing hymns, and the shadowy figure of Virgin Mary across the room. He stayed idle, unsure of whether it was a dream or something else because he no longer felt the pulsating pain in his body. He also felt marvellously at peace, being embraced by the radiant atmosphere of the unknown place.

Someone turned the door knob.

He turned to the left. A woman in black clothing was entering the room. It might be one of the angels, he pondered.

“You have finally woken up.”

He looked up at the woman. He was awed. As warm as the morning sun, a pair of auburn eyes was staring down at him in affection. He gazed into the radiant eyes, long enough for the owner of the warm gaze to smile.

“Good morning. May God bless your day.”

He did not know what was really going on, because involuntarily his left hand reached for the hands that were holding a rosary. The hands clasped his palm, and the smile was staring into began to widen.

“Where… am I?”

“You are safe now,” the woman answered, her voice a soft bell ringing in his ears. “You don’t have to worry.”

He examined the woman closer. The calm expression of the heart-shaped face was convincing enough for him to believe in her. The brunette hair was swaying down her face, touching his arm as she bent down to him.

“Are you… one of the angels?”

The woman chuckled. Somehow, the beautiful voice she possessed was soothing, the perfect remedy for tranquillity he badly needed. “An angel wouldn’t be wearing glasses, would she?” she asked.

He blushed. “I’m sorry. I thought I was in heaven, because I was supposed to be… dead out there.”

The woman smiled and put her hand on his chest, which he had realized was wrapped in bandages. “But you didn’t. God was Graceful to give you the second chance of living,” she uttered. “Besides, you won’t have bandages on your body once you ascend to Heaven.”

“I’m still alive…” he murmured, and was stirred by the warmth of her touch that was seeping into his face. “But how did you…”

“The children found you lying on the snow on the way to this monastery,” she said. “They brought you here in time before the blizzard arrived. You would have perished in the coldness if they didn’t find you.”

He tried getting up, feeling all dizzy after lying on the bed for an indefinite amount of time. “I only remembered looking for a magnolia tree, and then…” The woman laughed at the answer, and he turned to her in curiosity. “What are you… laughing at?”

“Magnolia tree in the middle of Siberian wilderness? You have got to be dreaming, haven’t you?”

He frowned. What an embarrassing statement, he pondered. “I’m sorry. I… I had been travelling… and I was thinking I would be losing my sense of direction,” he said.

“You don’t have to apologize,” she assured as her laugh was fading. “It must have been a fated encounter between us.” She touched his face again. “Of course, I will not question you on events that had brought you here.”

He cried. He did not understand why he was crying, or why he was acting like a man with a heart severely broken. The woman did nothing but wipe the tears off his face, not noticing that the pain returned to throb his chest.

“Did I hurt your heart with my speeches?” the woman asked.

“You didn’t,” he replied. “It was just… I…” He was calmed when the woman dried the last of his tears. “Thank you, Sister…”

“You don’t have to thank me, sir,” the woman answered. “It’s my duty to help those in needs.”

They heard cheers coming from the outside. “The children have arrived,” she said and walked to the door. “I have to prepare tonight’s dinner for them. Please excuse me.”

“Hey, wait.” The woman halted, and turned back to see him. “If you’re really this generous, then… please tell me your name.”

The woman chuckled. “That’s right. We haven’t known each other’s name, have we?” She corrected her posture and brought her hair behind her shoulders. “I’m Patricia Popovsky. What’s your name?”

“Hikki…” It was all he could tell her. “Just… Hikki.”

“I’m very pleased to meet you, Mister Hikki,” Patricia spoke and bowed before leaving him. He said nothing anymore, just a disturbing silence that followed. Patricia. A beautiful name to match a beautiful woman.

He winced again. The pain was pounding his chest without mercy. It was very agonizing, as if his heart was stabbed by a thousand spikes. When he finally overcame it, he was so tired he collapsed onto the bed and closed his eyes.

“Patricia…”

Night arrived. He had woken up when snow was falling outside the monastery. He looked outside, noticing how the glass panels were covered with snowflakes and crystallized ice. It was quiet, and he was expecting the occupants to be asleep.

“Ave Maria, gratia plena...”

It was faint, but he could clearly hear it. Someone was singing in the middle of the night, and his first guess was Patricia. Moving slowly to prevent the bandages from coming off, he walked to the congregation hall, finding his way through the dimly lit alley.

“Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus... et benedictus fructus ventris...”

He arrived at the hall. There she was, standing in front of the altar, shun by the small chandelier above her, singing the praising song of Virgin Mary. He remained still, not wanting his presence to disturb her concentration, not wanting her beauty to slip his sight.

Patricia stopped. She had noticed his presence. Turning to him, she carved a smile that was as sweet as it had been when he first saw it. “I’m sorry. I didn’t know you were watching.”

He took a seat on the bench. “Your voice woke me up,” he said.

She blushed. “Was my voice too loud? I’m sorry if it disturbed your privacy, Mister Hikki.”

He shook his head. “In fact, your voice had cured my illness,” he spoke. “Well… almost.”

Patricia chuckled and sat next to him. “I’m very pleased to hear that. How’s your pain?”

“Receding,” he answered. “I never thought I could travel all the way across Siberia with gunshot in my chest.”

“You mean this?” Patricia said and showed him an intact 9mm bullet. “The doctor took it out during the operation. He said it was a lucky shot, because it had missed your heart by half an inch.”

He took the bullet. He was appalled when a flash of memory struck his mind, and felt mocked by destiny that was making fun of his life. “Claes…” He clenched the bullet and shook his head in disbelief. “You didn’t… kill me…”

“Was the person who fired the bullet important to you?” He could only nod. “I’m sorry. I didn’t know.”

“I was guilty to force her to fire the gun in the first place…” he whimpered. “I thought it was the best way to end the friendship between us, but…”

“Here. Let me help.” Patricia took the bullet and attached it on a necklace before tying it around his neck. “I may not know what happened between you and her, but I’m sure God will forgive you for the sins you committed.”

“Do you think so?”

Patricia smiled. “Mister Hikki, I never lose my faith in Him.”

“Even if I had killed many innocent souls and committed crimes no normal person could forgive… do you think I still have the chance of redemption?”

“Of course you have,” she said and softly held his hand.

“But I’m alone… how am I supposed to overcome this solitude?” he replied, again stirred by the gentle warmth of the touch.

Patricia chuckled. “You’ll never be alone how many times you’re telling yourself you are,” she spoke.

The chuck struck ten times. Both of them looked at the Tsar-era wall-mounted clock. “Oh, dear. I must not wake up late for tomorrow’s morning prayers.” Patricia excused herself and made haste to her room. “Oh, yes. Are you planning to leave tomorrow?”

He was dumbfounded. What kind of question was that? “I don’t have anywhere to go. Why?”

There was a relief on her face as she heard the answer. “I’m going out to buy some groceries, and I thought I could ask for some extra hands.”

“Is it for the children?”

She nodded. “The monastery offers free lunch and dinner for them three times a week.”

He took a deep breath. “I see if I can help.”

“Thank you so much, Mister Hikki.” She headed to the alley but stopped when he called her again. “Yes, Mister Hikki?”

“Drop the suffix, please,” he spoke. “I’d rather be a modest person.”

She smiled. “Alright, Hikki. I will.”

She left him. Again. He was alone in the cold night, wondering of where he would be going next. If there was such a thing. He glanced at the bullet amulet and asked himself of how terrible it would have been if the children did not find him, or if the slug penetrated his heart. Whatever it was, he owed the kind woman for saving his life.

“Ave Maria…”

He remembered. The gunslingers and the protégés. They used to sing the choir before the Christmas party. It was fun to see the many looks of their face as Chief Natalya was teaching them. Triela’s protest when Hillshire booed her for her bad singing, Henrietta’s timid blush when Giuseppe complimented them, Claes’ warm smile when Mariel and Elsa asked her to help them.

Now it was just a memory of a distant past.

“Will I ever be forgiven for all the crimes I had done?”

I don't visit many other threads around either, but I count the manga thread among the few, though only whenever there's a new post (which is rarely :heh:).


Sounds quite good from all you've said here! :D
The story is a bit dark really. Ryogi Shiki is nothing like Tohno Shiki. After the accident she kind of lost one half of her conditioned split personality (something the Ryogi clan does to their children). She's an odd ball to put it simply.


OK you just wanted his eyes black, right? Like this?

http://img101.imageshack.us/img101/3899/itsuki01v3zk4.jpg
Thanks a lot! :D


Ah, yes. :heh: She will be quite different from her Tsukihime counterpart. I did want to know how to use White Ren, though, if I am going to use her. ;)
As a separate person?


Haha, no problem. ;)
It's a challenge really, since I'm not really good at creating new stuff.


Well, apparently her regular Lightning spells (the ones that come out of her, basically) are mostly composed of magic, and partially of lightning elemental. Or it could even be that the "lightning elemental" that is part of her spells is actually a property that magic is trying to emulate. That's why those attacks, while they look like elemental attacks, are still canceled by AMF, since they are mainly composed of magic. And thus she needs to use weather manipulation spells instead, which would conjure pure lightning elemental energy. ;)
That I'm not sure, but I believe there's no mistake that her spells have lightning properties. Its just that maybe its like what you said, its not completely lightning elemental. But we never actually seen an instance of Fate casting Plasma Smasher or whatever on a gadget drone, so I'm not so sure about that either.

But 100% lightning property spells on that scale would definitely need an incantation.


Exactly. Might as well use all that energy up in a non-elemental spell. That is, if the attack is only supposed to do damage. ;)
Big is good. "Maximum power is important too!" :D


Are they the same person, or being, though?
White Ren is kinda like Ren's inner evil, the part of her personality (in every sentient living being) that is evil and selfish, manifested as a separate entity through some way. Not sure on the details, Melty Blood's story isn't as fleshed out as the others.


:upset: I didn't really mean to make Claes a tragic figure in Hikki's life, but she was fortunate to not face her death. :upset:
Hikki wouldn't have gone berserk would he? Like in your other alternate timeline fic. :upset:


So can he cut through the lines of life? :uhoh: :uhoh:
Just using the image, not the character concept. Would be too haxxed if he could. :p


Thanks. :nod:

“… Remi no… baka…” Mai murmured. Slowly, sadly, the subconscious revelation of a sad girl unconscious.

“I know.” Gwen replied softly, even though her words would not reach their intended recipient. Words that hung in the cool, damp air, claiming the silence for herself, as she thought about certain coincidences.

It was a good thing Gwen had been here when she did, called back here to Midchilda by an anonymous note, she had been preparing herself for what was presumably another mission by her employers. Pending their forthcoming orders, she had made herself comfortable here.

No, this place was already that, here in this small ranch bungalow along Pine Street, one of many such similar houses along this street, a common bungalow amongst uncountable others like it. And yet for her, this place was most than just a run-of-the-mill house.

Once, this was home.

This was a most familiar place to her; for three years she had lived here along with the other significant people in her life – her sisters by fate, Iris, Natalia and Ashelyn, and other companions from her current employers, most notably Cyrille. This simple house was a shelter from the turmoil and stress of the missions they undertook, the assignments they endured. It was an oasis of souls, where their bodies found rest, and their minds eased of all their troubles and worries. Amidst the confusion and uncertainty, here in this humble refuge did all of them find the most valuable, yet most fleeting of all human needs: Peace.

Here in this house, they were neither mere experiments nor employers. Neither weapons, nor servants to a higher power.

They were themselves. They were friends. They were sisters.

Most of all, they were family.

Though they no longer resided under its roof, the safehouse was still there, available, with its doors ever willing to provide them a shelter when in need.

All of them. Including Mai.

‘I wanted to see you.’

She recalled Mai’s words as she comforted her on the alleyway under the pouring rain, holding her by those cold shoulders, leading her destitute heart into refuge.

Gwen could not imagine what would’ve happened to Mai had she not been there. Had she not been here in this circumstance, walking out in the rain to grab some supplies for her own extended stay. Would Mai have been left alone, drenched in the cold, bitter rain, waiting for solace that would never come? A soul abandoned in the wet asphalt alley, consumed by the emptiness of the night? Cowering in anguish and despair?

None of that mattered now. She could only be glad that fate had not dealt them a more severe hand.

She was here, here for the weeping girl on her lap, the anguished soul of a sister in need.

In need of care, in need of protection. In need of counsel, and in need of-

*Brrrrrrrrrr*

- Nourishment.

The young redhead could only manage a wan smile at her hungry charge, as she gently lifted Mai’s head off her lap and unto a pillow, lest she disturb the young maiden’s sleep.

She softly stroked her friend’s hair once again.

“I won’t take long Mai.” She whispered in her ear.

And left her with a kiss on the forehead for reassurance.

“I’ll be right back.”




I wonder though, what happened to Ashelyn and the others? And is Gwen angry at Smith? Enough to go hunt for his head? :twitch:

Snippet Time

I can't believe this chapter, despite its short length, took me that much longer to write.

Here's the continuation to my previous chapter.



Cranagan City Outskirts: Residential Districts
2058 hours.

It was a quaint little place, sandwiched in the middle of other similar places in the row of houses that occupied this side of the street, so conforming, and so typical. An unassuming and simple ranch bungalow, dark and seemingly unoccupied, its appearance illuminated only by the nearby streetlamp.

Inside that house, that light was all Gwen required, sitting by the edge of her humble bed in her small, silent room, watching the rain continue to pour outside...

A soft sniffle broke the silence, and her attention was captured by her charge, her young friend whose head laid on her lap. The girl with silky long black hair, and her soft, sleeping face, with an almost angelic expression, seemingly unknown to the worries of this world.

Except for the stain of tears that ran down her cheeks.

Another sniffle and Gwen responded with a slow, gentle stroke of her petite hands through the girl’s hair.

Even in sleep, the pain still lingered.

And Gwen’s empathies found it unbearably difficult to witness.

To see Mai so hurt, so miserable, so broken, to see one of her dearest friend’s anguish to this degree. A tortured soul who can only shed her agonies through her warm, salty tears.

Her heart suffered as much as Mai’s suffered. And Mai’s pain was her own as well.

A burden she gladly carried, a pain she suffered unconditionally, if this was required of her to ease her friend’s distress, no matter how seemingly fruitless or futile.

For if there was one thing she could not stand to see exist in this world, it was pain in a friend’s soul.

Especially pain caused by the acts of another.

“… Remi no… baka…” Mai murmured. Slowly, sadly, the subconscious revelation of a sad girl unconscious.

“I know.” Gwen replied softly, even though her words would not reach their intended recipient. Words that hung in the cool, damp air, claiming the silence for herself, as she thought about certain coincidences.

There may be a day...when I learn how to write like this... :bow::bow::bow: ;)

Good thing that Gwen was there for Mai...else who knows what could have happened to her... :upset:

Cant wait for more. :D

I don't visit many other threads around either, but I count the manga thread among the few, though only whenever there's a new post (which is rarely :heh:).

That's true, rarely do people post in there. I did not know that more manga chapters were being scanlated, though. :)

The story is a bit dark really. Ryogi Shiki is nothing like Tohno Shiki. After the accident she kind of lost one half of her conditioned split personality (something the Ryogi clan does to their children). She's an odd ball to put it simply.

Very weird indeed... :uhoh:

Thanks a lot! :D

Was that all you needed? :)

As a separate person?

Well, since I've seen images of both Ren and White Ren next to each other, I thought they were different persons. :heh: Now apparently she is Ren's evil innerself.

Though now that I think about it, if they are the same person...:uhoh: I could make it so Ren specializes in Illusions, and White Ren in bombardment...Hmm... BTW, does she have a name? Or just Ren? :heh:

It's a challenge really, since I'm not really good at creating new stuff.

Those Fon Artes could be of the Lyrical Magic type... Though knowing that doesnt help much. :heh:

That I'm not sure, but I believe there's no mistake that her spells have lightning properties. Its just that maybe its like what you said, its not completely lightning elemental. But we never actually seen an instance of Fate casting Plasma Smasher or whatever on a gadget drone, so I'm not so sure about that either.

But 100% lightning property spells on that scale would definitely need an incantation.

Yeah, I also assume that her spells are partially composed of lightning elemental.

Regarding Plasma Smasher, I would assume that the Lightning Fall spell is easier to cast, or requires less energy, than Plasma Smasher. Such level of AMF could have probably been pwned by PS anyway, though.

Ah well, not much proof anywhere anyway. I made the theory above because of the existence and need of the weather manipulation spells. :heh: If Fate's regular spells were completely elemental, she wouldnt have needed to cast a weather manipulation one, ne? ;)

Big is good. "Maximum power is important too!" :D

:heh:

White Ren is kinda like Ren's inner evil, the part of her personality (in every sentient living being) that is evil and selfish, manifested as a separate entity through some way. Not sure on the details, Melty Blood's story isn't as fleshed out as the others.

:nod:

I wonder though, what happened to Ashelyn and the others? And is Gwen angry at Smith? Enough to go hunt for his head? :twitch:

I have not updated my ficlet because I am in the process of completely rebuilding it. Most, if not all, of what I have written so far is no longer true. However, since this arc takes place quite far into the future, you probably wont know what happened to my group until much later...though one thing is for sure, they are no longer in Mid-Childa. ;)

Thanks to TK for his intial read over of it, and to Keroko for letting me borrow tesla and Keroko-chan :D

Here's Part 7 of my ficlet, A visit to RF6, weighing in at 5.2k words. If you missed any of the previous parts, links can be found at my master index (http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost.php?p=974723&postcount=869).

Just one more part to go now. It shouldn't take too long as well since there won't be any actions scenes to painstakingly construct.

Thoughts please, if you have any, even if just to say that is sucked and you have to learn to write :p

And Myr gets his turn in the spotlight :heh: RF6 giving them a hard time there, though Nanoha still got knocked out :heh: Awesomely written and incredibly detailed chapter here :)

Belkan. Phanan is suffering from a reverse snake poison effect. Much like how snakes are immume to venom of their own kind, Phanan has very potent healing magic, but he is immume to Mid-style healing, and many closely related types. Belkan is among one of the types apparently not affected by Phanan's immunity.


Aaah :)

I smell an excuse to pair someone up with Shamal here due to his immunity:heh::uhoh:

Controlling the entire arsenal of an AC-130 Gunship?!?!?!?! :eek:

WANT MOST BAAAAAAAAAADLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to disagree on the point that they helped to create Rein. I mean, if they have a rough idea, why don't they get the entire process out from Hayate while they're helping her?

From what we know, Unison devices are intelligent devices taken to the extreme, But I don't think its so simple. The TSAB may have help Hayate to a point (basic construction of an A.I for example) but I think she has to do the rest herself to make that into a Unison device, Rein. Also if the TSAB has a rough idea, why hasn't Nanoha and Fate ask the TSAB and Hayate to convert Raising Heart and Bardiche to Unison devices. Why go for the more dangerous limit break modes than use an Unison device which helps boost power and a lot safer as well?

The answer I suspect is that Rein's creation is unique to Hayate, via the process similiar to that of the guardian knight system.

That's why I said "rough" idea. Which would mean that even if they had an idea, they still wouldn't have the specifics nor sufficient knowledge nor technology for anything close to a replication :heh::heh::heh:

Puuh, done!

AAS girly coming up!
So who ever is interested, here's Rinyas profile!


Thanks goes to PhoenixFlare for helping me with the gramma! :bow:




Name: Rinya Shuri A’Kalash
Alias: Rin
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Date of birth: March 8, MC 056
Family: Bedario Shuri A’Kalash (father), Lilira Shuri A’Kalash (mother), Rikko Shuri A’Kalash (brother)
Hair Colour: Light blue
Eye Colour: Orange

Affiliation: Time-Space Administration Bureau / Air Armament service / “Dragonfly” Squadron
Position: 2nd Lieutenant / Dragonfly 01
Wizard Ranking: AA
Magic System: Neo-Belka
Magic Colour: Green
Device: Windlanze (Armed / Spear)


Background:

Birth & Childhood:
Rinya was born on Vedir into the Shuri family of the A’Kalash tribe.
Vedir was a world covered with wide windy canyons; most of them so deep that the sunlight never reaches the bottom, thus making the Vedirians live on top of the many plateaus. It was through this planet surface that the Vedirian tribes developed a unique culture where aviation is the main way of movement and transport. So Rinya was born with the blood of aviators.

Ever since she could remember, she had always dreamt of flying. Her father, the owner and pilot of a small air-cargo freight business, trained her in flying cargo gliders so that she could later work with him and carry on the family business some day.

At the age of ten, she went to a TSAB flight show with her family. The first moment she saw the aerial mages, she knew that she wanted to fly like them in the sky, without a glider or plane.
Her father didn’t like her sudden decision and ordered her to stop the stupid thinking at once. Rinya of course, did not.

Since then, the tension within the family never vanished and at the age of twelve she left her home and joined the TSAB.

In service:
Influenced by the traditions of her home world, which reached back to ancient Belka, she chose the Belkan style of magic, even if it wasn't the best choice for someone who wanted to become an aerial mage. But, with passion and hardwork, she succeeded to enter aerial training.

While she was normally good at teamwork, the somewhat reckless nature of her attacks made it difficult for her to adapt to the ways the aerial mages fought, and she nearly dropped out of aerial training. To her luck, an instructor saw the potential of her being more of a melee attacker than a ranged combat mage. Rinya was given an instructor that taught her the fighting style of a Belka Ritter, and, considering the history of her homeworld, she was given her own Device that was created after a traditional Vedirian aerial melee weapon.

Thanks to this, Rinya was able to graduate from the training school as one of the top ranking students, as an A-ranked aerial mage.

Dragonfly:
After graduation, Rinya was assigned to the Air Armaments Service Squadron "Dragonfly", an experienced battle squadron that handled patrol and rescue missions.

Rinya's first big mission was when Dragonfly helped other units in the search for a Class-1 criminal that was detected in Central Midchilda.

Dragonfly found the fugitive, but, Rinya, who was the most inexperienced, was the first to be wounded in battle and was ordered to retreat at once. She later discovered that Dragonfly was totally wiped out.
Rinya wanted to return to battle immediately, but, for her condition, was ordered to stay behind. While she was being treated at the first-aid station, the criminal was captured.

Road to Officer:
As the only survivor of Dragonfly, Rinya was sent on leave and she visited her family on Vedir, but the still-existing tension between her and her father made her return to Midchilda quickly.
Back in service, she supported other aerial squadrons on different missions.

It was the JS incident that brought her to the attention of her superiors.
During the battle against the Saint's Cradle, Rinya was flying around the battlefield, supporting other units and engaging Drones in direct combat.
Through her bravery and quick-thinking on the field, she was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and was sent to an Officer's course, her official rank now determined as AA.

Personality:
Rinya is a bright and energetic person that some people would even call her reckless.
She can be very proud and stubborn sometimes, but this is only to hide her true feelings when she is insecure.
Rinya loves flying and is very glad she joined TSAB because of it. She still thinks very fondly of her old home, even though she is not on good terms with her father.
She also tries to see the good in people first.

Windlanze
Windlanze (Wind Lance) is a device crafted after a Vedirian wind-rider's lance.
In ancient Belka, these traditional weapons were used by Vedirian knights in aerial battles and air jousting.
Swung in fast flight, the lance could deal massive damage on impact to its target.
Windlanze is additionally equipped with a second form and a Belkan cartridge system.

Modes:
Klingenform (Blade Form):
Windlanze’s standard form is a short spear with a long blade.

Zwillingsklingenform (Twin Blade Form):
A second blade appears on the other side of the now-shortened hilt. This form is used when battling more opponents at once.



Defensive Spells:

Knight Armour:
Rinyas Knight Armour is a green and white bodysuit. Armour parts cover the upper torso, shoulders, forearms, knees and feet. The Knight Armour is designed to prefer mobility over protection.

Sturmschild (Storm Shield):
Shield spell in form of a triangle.

Windtanz (Wind Dance)
A spell that increases the casters speed and allows almost instantaneous movement.

Offensive Spells:

Luftmesser (Air Knife):
A spell that is using magic to compress and accelerate the air around the device. It enables the caster to create blades of wind and throw them at the target.

Windschnitter (Wind Reaper):
A more powerful version of Luftmesser.
This spell needs a cartridge to be activated.

Sturmangriff (Assault):
A spell that uses Windtanz as base.
Magical energy is infused into the blade of the device enhancing its ability to penetrate shields and armour. The caster is then boosted forward, allowing him a single strike with the enhanced blade.
This spell needs two cartridges to be activated.

Somehow, my impression of her was different when she was first introduced. Still, Rinya's proving to be a nice OC already, if only because her origins are more down-to-earth, which shows even in her somewhat underpowered spells :) :heh:

An aviation-centric world though? Sounds like USB500's Aurelia :) And as always, AWESOME drawings there :bow::bow:

Maybe its just me but for a AA mage, she seems rather weak.

Better to be underpowered than over :heh:

And who says she can't possibly counter with 1337 SK1772? :heh:


So do I, but for me its a tad more complicated. Its impossible for Keroko to even unision to begin with, concidering the state of her Linker Core. It would completely destroy any UD trying to Unision with her.

That leaves Tesla...

Who is Belkan...

Ancient Belkan at that...

...

...

GAH! Windows! Windows! Must open windows!


I struggle to understand what just happened here :twitch::uhoh::heh:


Nice art. Especially her device. She's stubburn, reckless, loves flying... Oh yeah, she would get along with Keroko juuust fine. :D


Someone's already scouting out for more Rogue Squadron recruits I see :heh::D

- Well, X in full armor could do as well... I suddenly had that Rockman EXE Axess crack about cross fusion

:heh:

- Epically Evil... that is why i'm not posting it here... *points to hints hidden in preview posts JAM, Bio-zoids, Victim, another army of evil Shaoran Clones...

Shaoran Clones? :twitch:

Nonetheless, your outline is still H4XX :heh:

Yes, it's been a while since i've worked on the Bugger... and still planning that "Awakening to Girls" scene.

With all the crack from Seto Inland...

Mermaid Drinks are HAXX. And i feel somewhat sorry for the broken Iincho...

YES!!!! POOR IINCHO NEEDS MORE LOVE!!! :upset:


Are you nuts? Who would wanna subject Rein to the agony of being a nun in a mountain full of senile of men? :uhoh:


At least she'll be safe there :heh:

-_-' I'm starting to understand how S&W feel about Mai constantly chasing them.

:heh::heh::heh:


How exactly does it works?


Lyrical Magic at its most basic is basically just manipulating Sound, allowing you the mage (or in the case of Lyrical Magic practictioners, Meistros) to modify sound in a near unlimited manner of ways. It'll basically be like an audiophile's wet dream :heh:

There is the second type of Lyrical Magic though, which'll uses the Music itself as a medium for magic - basically, the music itself is treated similarly to an element, and can be used to deliver various spells of all kinds.

Too damn much backlog for now. :uhoh:

The hell do you guys manage to keep up? And does everyone live on the other side of the world from me??? I wake up to six pages of backlog, and maybe go through two during the day. Not that it's a big thing, but...

And does anyone mind doing a Shop for me? If not that's no problem, but I can't use it myself.

How do we keep up?

Survival of the Fittest :p

And the people here live in different timezones... some of use here live in Southeast Asia, others in Europe, and some in North America. :heh:

And I can shop :)

Ah, I see. If you want to write up a piece or something, I wouldn't mind :). It's just I'm STILL getting a feel for all these OCs. There's just soo many :eyespin:.


I'll keep that in mind.

:frustrated::frustrated::frustrated:

In any case, I completely fail to see how that would work.:p
Her minidress is pretty much figure-hugging already. Her legs are bare in her Knight Armor. The only thing that would soak and stick is her jacket. And her fainting from embarrassment due to her jacket contouring to her shoulders does not compute.:p

Now... Let's see if this makes some imaginations run wild for me to bash into place.:p

A little random something I typed up to practice my skills, yet relevant to the OFM. Tell me what you guys think, please!


Case Closed[/i][/color]

Now THAT's an assassination :heh: Collapsing the floor with a Jet Magnum was awesome though :D

Erick's jump though reminded me of Gundam 00's first episode though, when the Exia was dropping out of the sky :heh:

:heh: Admit it Aaron, our poor Hayate deserves some hawt scenes for good and love! *runs*

:heh::heh::heh:



THIS MAN SPEAKS TRUTH!!!! :D:D:D

Kagerou: Storywise... yeah, just the stuff that Liingo mention. Other than that....

*chuckles* This is our Order. ^___^ Franz and glasses; must be some sorta meme. Tinted glasses, clear glasses....

Oooops indeed :D:D:D:uhoh:



And since I won't be tackling t3h backlog today, I present you with my opening post of the week instead. :nod:

He opened his eyes.

For a while, he thought he was at heaven. The mural painting on the ceiling, the echoing hymns, and the shadowy figure of Virgin Mary across the room. He stayed idle, unsure of whether it was a dream or something else because he no longer felt the pulsating pain in his body. He also felt marvellously at peace, being embraced by the radiant atmosphere of the unknown place.

Someone turned the door knob.

He turned to the left. A woman in black clothing was entering the room. It might be one of the angels, he pondered.

“You have finally woken up.”

He looked up at the woman. He was awed. As warm as the morning sun, a pair of auburn eyes was staring down at him in affection. He gazed into the radiant eyes, long enough for the owner of the warm gaze to smile.

“Good morning. May God bless your day.”

He did not know what was really going on, because involuntarily his left hand reached for the hands that were holding a rosary. The hands clasped his palm, and the smile was staring into began to widen.

“Where… am I?”

“You are safe now,” the woman answered, her voice a soft bell ringing in his ears. “You don’t have to worry.”

He examined the woman closer. The calm expression of the heart-shaped face was convincing enough for him to believe in her. The brunette hair was swaying down her face, touching his arm as she bent down to him.

“Are you… one of the angels?”

The woman chuckled. Somehow, the beautiful voice she possessed was soothing, the perfect remedy for tranquillity he badly needed. “An angel wouldn’t be wearing glasses, would she?” she asked.

He blushed. “I’m sorry. I thought I was in heaven, because I was supposed to be… dead out there.”

The woman smiled and put her hand on his chest, which he had realized was wrapped in bandages. “But you didn’t. God was Graceful to give you the second chance of living,” she uttered. “Besides, you won’t have bandages on your body once you ascend to Heaven.”

“I’m still alive…” he murmured, and was stirred by the warmth of her touch that was seeping into his face. “But how did you…”

“The children found you lying on the snow on the way to this monastery,” she said. “They brought you here in time before the blizzard arrived. You would have perished in the coldness if they didn’t find you.”

He tried getting up, feeling all dizzy after lying on the bed for an indefinite amount of time. “I only remembered looking for a magnolia tree, and then…” The woman laughed at the answer, and he turned to her in curiosity. “What are you… laughing at?”

“Magnolia tree in the middle of Siberian wilderness? You have got to be dreaming, haven’t you?”

He frowned. What an embarrassing statement, he pondered. “I’m sorry. I… I had been travelling… and I was thinking I would be losing my sense of direction,” he said.

“You don’t have to apologize,” she assured as her laugh was fading. “It must have been a fated encounter between us.” She touched his face again. “Of course, I will not question you on events that had brought you here.”

He cried. He did not understand why he was crying, or why he was acting like a man with a heart severely broken. The woman did nothing but wipe the tears off his face, not noticing that the pain returned to throb his chest.

“Did I hurt your heart with my speeches?” the woman asked.

“You didn’t,” he replied. “It was just… I…” He was calmed when the woman dried the last of his tears. “Thank you, Sister…”

“You don’t have to thank me, sir,” the woman answered. “It’s my duty to help those in needs.”

They heard cheers coming from the outside. “The children have arrived,” she said and walked to the door. “I have to prepare tonight’s dinner for them. Please excuse me.”

“Hey, wait.” The woman halted, and turned back to see him. “If you’re really this generous, then… please tell me your name.”

The woman chuckled. “That’s right. We haven’t known each other’s name, have we?” She corrected her posture and brought her hair behind her shoulders. “I’m Patricia Popovsky. What’s your name?”

“Hikki…” It was all he could tell her. “Just… Hikki.”

“I’m very pleased to meet you, Mister Hikki,” Patricia spoke and bowed before leaving him. He said nothing anymore, just a disturbing silence that followed. Patricia. A beautiful name to match a beautiful woman.

He winced again. The pain was pounding his chest without mercy. It was very agonizing, as if his heart was stabbed by a thousand spikes. When he finally overcame it, he was so tired he collapsed onto the bed and closed his eyes.

“Patricia…”

Night arrived. He had woken up when snow was falling outside the monastery. He looked outside, noticing how the glass panels were covered with snowflakes and crystallized ice. It was quiet, and he was expecting the occupants to be asleep.

“Ave Maria, gratia plena...”

It was faint, but he could clearly hear it. Someone was singing in the middle of the night, and his first guess was Patricia. Moving slowly to prevent the bandages from coming off, he walked to the congregation hall, finding his way through the dimly lit alley.

“Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus... et benedictus fructus ventris...”

He arrived at the hall. There she was, standing in front of the altar, shun by the small chandelier above her, singing the praising song of Virgin Mary. He remained still, not wanting his presence to disturb her concentration, not wanting her beauty to slip his sight.

Patricia stopped. She had noticed his presence. Turning to him, she carved a smile that was as sweet as it had been when he first saw it. “I’m sorry. I didn’t know you were watching.”

He took a seat on the bench. “Your voice woke me up,” he said.

She blushed. “Was my voice too loud? I’m sorry if it disturbed your privacy, Mister Hikki.”

He shook his head. “In fact, your voice had cured my illness,” he spoke. “Well… almost.”

Patricia chuckled and sat next to him. “I’m very pleased to hear that. How’s your pain?”

“Receding,” he answered. “I never thought I could travel all the way across Siberia with gunshot in my chest.”

“You mean this?” Patricia said and showed him an intact 9mm bullet. “The doctor took it out during the operation. He said it was a lucky shot, because it had missed your heart by half an inch.”

He took the bullet. He was appalled when a flash of memory struck his mind, and felt mocked by destiny that was making fun of his life. “Claes…” He clenched the bullet and shook his head in disbelief. “You didn’t… kill me…”

“Was the person who fired the bullet important to you?” He could only nod. “I’m sorry. I didn’t know.”

“I was guilty to force her to fire the gun in the first place…” he whimpered. “I thought it was the best way to end the friendship between us, but…”

“Here. Let me help.” Patricia took the bullet and attached it on a necklace before tying it around his neck. “I may not know what happened between you and her, but I’m sure God will forgive you for the sins you committed.”

“Do you think so?”

Patricia smiled. “Mister Hikki, I never lose my faith in Him.”

“Even if I had killed many innocent souls and committed crimes no normal person could forgive… do you think I still have the chance of redemption?”

“Of course you have,” she said and softly held his hand.

“But I’m alone… how am I supposed to overcome this solitude?” he replied, again stirred by the gentle warmth of the touch.

Patricia chuckled. “You’ll never be alone how many times you’re telling yourself you are,” she spoke.

The chuck struck ten times. Both of them looked at the Tsar-era wall-mounted clock. “Oh, dear. I must not wake up late for tomorrow’s morning prayers.” Patricia excused herself and made haste to her room. “Oh, yes. Are you planning to leave tomorrow?”

He was dumbfounded. What kind of question was that? “I don’t have anywhere to go. Why?”

There was a relief on her face as she heard the answer. “I’m going out to buy some groceries, and I thought I could ask for some extra hands.”

“Is it for the children?”

She nodded. “The monastery offers free lunch and dinner for them three times a week.”

He took a deep breath. “I see if I can help.”

“Thank you so much, Mister Hikki.” She headed to the alley but stopped when he called her again. “Yes, Mister Hikki?”

“Drop the suffix, please,” he spoke. “I’d rather be a modest person.”

She smiled. “Alright, Hikki. I will.”

She left him. Again. He was alone in the cold night, wondering of where he would be going next. If there was such a thing. He glanced at the bullet amulet and asked himself of how terrible it would have been if the children did not find him, or if the slug penetrated his heart. Whatever it was, he owed the kind woman for saving his life.

“Ave Maria…”

He remembered. The gunslingers and the protégés. They used to sing the choir before the Christmas party. It was fun to see the many looks of their face as Chief Natalya was teaching them. Triela’s protest when Hillshire booed her for her bad singing, Henrietta’s timid blush when Giuseppe complimented them, Claes’ warm smile when Mariel and Elsa asked her to help them.

Now it was just a memory of a distant past.

“Will I ever be forgiven for all the crimes I had done?”

Patricia's such a nice woman I must say, pretty likeable already for comforting Hikki like that :) Not to mention already looking cute there :D

Btw, I MUST have the rest of the transcript for Ave Maria :eek:

Speaking of Nuns, I have some of my own... including one who'll be appearing in the future in relation to a certain OC of mine :)

:upset: I didn't really mean to make Claes a tragic figure in Hikki's life, but she was fortunate to not face her death. :upset:


Yeah :upset:

Why do I get this feeling that anotehr OC like this is going to appear SOON? :uhoh:


Pretty Cure? :twitch:

I wonder though, what happened to Ashelyn and the others? And is Gwen angry at Smith? Enough to go hunt for his head? :twitch:

Don't worry, the rest of the girls are still alive and kicking :heh:

Well, if I recall correctly, the idea behind this is that our bodies are mostly composed of water molecules, and so this guy is such a powerful Water user that he is even able to control those molecules. He doesnt exactly pull water out of his victims, or the opposite... he controls them to basically grab his victims and strangle them somehow from the inside... :heh: Its basically a grab skill, I guess, but a very lethal one. It also drains quite a lot of energy.

Another interesting note about this guy, is that he could also change the composition of his water attacks so that lightning could not be conducted through them... :uhoh:

Sharazad is suddenly becoming quite powerful... :uhoh:
I read tokyo underground before but i was thinking of something else when I mention pulling water molecules out. For that lightning protection thing, pure water isn't a good conductor of electricity if I remember my chemistry and the manga correctly.

As for suggestions, I think with her water elemental control, she should be able to affect the weather.

Somehow, my impression of her was different when she was first introduced. Still, Rinya's proving to be a nice OC already, if only because her origins are more down-to-earth, which shows even in her somewhat underpowered spells :) :heh:

An aviation-centric world though? Sounds like USB500's Aurelia :) And as always, AWESOME drawings there :bow::bow:



Better to be underpowered than over :heh:

And who says she can't possibly counter with 1337 SK1772? :heh:

Very true, except she got promoted to AA from A for owning drones in the final battle and I believe we all determined that drones are mostly stupid pieces of junk desu, which does not inspire much confidence in her skill. I'm just saying there's plenty of room to strengthen Rinya if he wanted to. Although I'm very glad to see someone here has the restrain not to make H4XX characters. :)

Lyrical Magic at its most basic is basically just manipulating Sound, allowing you the mage (or in the case of Lyrical Magic practictioners, Meistros) to modify sound in a near unlimited manner of ways. It'll basically be like an audiophile's wet dream :heh:

There is the second type of Lyrical Magic though, which'll uses the Music itself as a medium for magic - basically, the music itself is treated similarly to an element, and can be used to deliver various spells of all kinds.


Speaking of Nuns, I have some of my own... including one who'll be appearing in the future in relation to a certain OC of mine :)

Wow, slow day today :p Guess we must have used up the reserves over the weekend :D


*chuckles* This is our Order. ^___^ Franz and glasses; must be some sorta meme. Tinted glasses, clear glasses....

*snap* That's how Naomi gets his attention. She'll become a GAR tsundere meganekko. <.<
GAR Tsuendere meganekko............:eyespin: Sorry Gar and tsundere in the same desciption of a person just doesn't compute for me:eyespin::eyespin:

I personally see it as, a couple emerge in a span of a few decades. But that's stretching things. :heh: Think of it like a pool of power, genetics traversing generations and not appearing till a suitable "candidate" appears (a la YuYu Hakusho). Though I don't think its that Earth is said to not have mages, but lacks mages.
Ah yep, woops, should have been "not many mages" or "minimal numbers of mages"

We all do. :nod:

Yeah I can understand your points, just a bit surprised at the result of the fight.

:nod:
Hmm, not much I can do about that..

I think you're starting to make Hayate grow on me... I wanna pat her head a la Aurion now...

:twitch::twitch:
Sooo does this mean that Arcas is going to have look out from a love-interest proposed by creator-san :p

Hey, has anyone seen Kha around?
He should be either back in Singapore by now, or making ready to go back, since semester has finished here down under..
Well, it had been a hectic weekend I went through. The work application, the exam, the stress..... I wish I had a healthy dose of Carim service vitamin today. :upset: :upset:

:nod: Don't worry, it'll all be worth it in the end. Oh and Sister Schah is looking for you...:uhoh: Seems like they want to meet up with you...

He opened his eyes.

For a while, he thought he was at heaven. The mural painting on the ceiling, the echoing hymns, and the shadowy figure of Virgin Mary across the room. He stayed idle, unsure of whether it was a dream or something else because he no longer felt the pulsating pain in his body. He also felt marvellously at peace, being embraced by the radiant atmosphere of the unknown place.

Someone turned the door knob.

He turned to the left. A woman in black clothing was entering the room. It might be one of the angels, he pondered.

“You have finally woken up.”

He looked up at the woman. He was awed. As warm as the morning sun, a pair of auburn eyes was staring down at him in affection. He gazed into the radiant eyes, long enough for the owner of the warm gaze to smile.

“Good morning. May God bless your day.”

He did not know what was really going on, because involuntarily his left hand reached for the hands that were holding a rosary. The hands clasped his palm, and the smile was staring into began to widen.

“Where… am I?”

“You are safe now,” the woman answered, her voice a soft bell ringing in his ears. “You don’t have to worry.”

He examined the woman closer. The calm expression of the heart-shaped face was convincing enough for him to believe in her. The brunette hair was swaying down her face, touching his arm as she bent down to him.

“Are you… one of the angels?”

The woman chuckled. Somehow, the beautiful voice she possessed was soothing, the perfect remedy for tranquillity he badly needed. “An angel wouldn’t be wearing glasses, would she?” she asked.

He blushed. “I’m sorry. I thought I was in heaven, because I was supposed to be… dead out there.”

The woman smiled and put her hand on his chest, which he had realized was wrapped in bandages. “But you didn’t. God was Graceful to give you the second chance of living,” she uttered. “Besides, you won’t have bandages on your body once you ascend to Heaven.”

“I’m still alive…” he murmured, and was stirred by the warmth of her touch that was seeping into his face. “But how did you…”

“The children found you lying on the snow on the way to this monastery,” she said. “They brought you here in time before the blizzard arrived. You would have perished in the coldness if they didn’t find you.”

He tried getting up, feeling all dizzy after lying on the bed for an indefinite amount of time. “I only remembered looking for a magnolia tree, and then…” The woman laughed at the answer, and he turned to her in curiosity. “What are you… laughing at?”

“Magnolia tree in the middle of Siberian wilderness? You have got to be dreaming, haven’t you?”

He frowned. What an embarrassing statement, he pondered. “I’m sorry. I… I had been travelling… and I was thinking I would be losing my sense of direction,” he said.

“You don’t have to apologize,” she assured as her laugh was fading. “It must have been a fated encounter between us.” She touched his face again. “Of course, I will not question you on events that had brought you here.”

He cried. He did not understand why he was crying, or why he was acting like a man with a heart severely broken. The woman did nothing but wipe the tears off his face, not noticing that the pain returned to throb his chest.

“Did I hurt your heart with my speeches?” the woman asked.

“You didn’t,” he replied. “It was just… I…” He was calmed when the woman dried the last of his tears. “Thank you, Sister…”

“You don’t have to thank me, sir,” the woman answered. “It’s my duty to help those in needs.”

They heard cheers coming from the outside. “The children have arrived,” she said and walked to the door. “I have to prepare tonight’s dinner for them. Please excuse me.”

“Hey, wait.” The woman halted, and turned back to see him. “If you’re really this generous, then… please tell me your name.”

The woman chuckled. “That’s right. We haven’t known each other’s name, have we?” She corrected her posture and brought her hair behind her shoulders. “I’m Patricia Popovsky. What’s your name?”

Very nice. I ended up reading your fic on fiction press, and I've noticed that you like your male protagonists meeting nice women. :D Although hopefully it's not going to be the same.
Oh oh, Phoenix, here is another one, courtesy of the same guy :heh:: He controls a rather small mass of water to completely surround his victims...to drown them in mid air... :uhoh::uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Maybe I'll just shup up now. :p :heh:

Snippet Time

I can't believe this chapter, despite its short length, took me that much longer to write.

Here's the continuation to my previous chapter.



Cranagan City Outskirts: Residential Districts
2058 hours.

It was a quaint little place, sandwiched in the middle of other similar places in the row of houses that occupied this side of the street, so conforming, and so typical. An unassuming and simple ranch bungalow, dark and seemingly unoccupied, its appearance illuminated only by the nearby streetlamp.

Inside that house, that light was all Gwen required, sitting by the edge of her humble bed in her small, silent room, watching the rain continue to pour outside...

A soft sniffle broke the silence, and her attention was captured by her charge, her young friend whose head laid on her lap. The girl with silky long black hair, and her soft, sleeping face, with an almost angelic expression, seemingly unknown to the worries of this world.

Except for the stain of tears that ran down her cheeks.

Another sniffle and Gwen responded with a slow, gentle stroke of her petite hands through the girl’s hair.

Even in sleep, the pain still lingered.

And Gwen’s empathies found it unbearably difficult to witness.

To see Mai so hurt, so miserable, so broken, to see one of her dearest friend’s anguish to this degree. A tortured soul who can only shed her agonies through her warm, salty tears.

Her heart suffered as much as Mai’s suffered. And Mai’s pain was her own as well.

A burden she gladly carried, a pain she suffered unconditionally, if this was required of her to ease her friend’s distress, no matter how seemingly fruitless or futile.

For if there was one thing she could not stand to see exist in this world, it was pain in a friend’s soul.

Especially pain caused by the acts of another.

“… Remi no… baka…” Mai murmured. Slowly, sadly, the subconscious revelation of a sad girl unconscious.

“I know.” Gwen replied softly, even though her words would not reach their intended recipient. Words that hung in the cool, damp air, claiming the silence for herself, as she thought about certain coincidences.

It was a good thing Gwen had been here when she did, called back here to Midchilda by an anonymous note, she had been preparing herself for what was presumably another mission by her employers. Pending their forthcoming orders, she had made herself comfortable here.

No, this place was already that, here in this small ranch bungalow along Pine Street, one of many such similar houses along this street, a common bungalow amongst uncountable others like it. And yet for her, this place was most than just a run-of-the-mill house.

Once, this was home.

This was a most familiar place to her; for three years she had lived here along with the other significant people in her life – her sisters by fate, Iris, Natalia and Ashelyn, and other companions from her current employers, most notably Cyrille. This simple house was a shelter from the turmoil and stress of the missions they undertook, the assignments they endured. It was an oasis of souls, where their bodies found rest, and their minds eased of all their troubles and worries. Amidst the confusion and uncertainty, here in this humble refuge did all of them find the most valuable, yet most fleeting of all human needs: Peace.

Here in this house, they were neither mere experiments nor employers. Neither weapons, nor servants to a higher power.

They were themselves. They were friends. They were sisters.

Most of all, they were family.

Though they no longer resided under its roof, the safehouse was still there, available, with its doors ever willing to provide them a shelter when in need.

All of them. Including Mai.

‘I wanted to see you.’

She recalled Mai’s words as she comforted her on the alleyway under the pouring rain, holding her by those cold shoulders, leading her destitute heart into refuge.

Gwen could not imagine what would’ve happened to Mai had she not been there. Had she not been here in this circumstance, walking out in the rain to grab some supplies for her own extended stay. Would Mai have been left alone, drenched in the cold, bitter rain, waiting for solace that would never come? A soul abandoned in the wet asphalt alley, consumed by the emptiness of the night? Cowering in anguish and despair?

None of that mattered now. She could only be glad that fate had not dealt them a more severe hand.

She was here, here for the weeping girl on her lap, the anguished soul of a sister in need.

In need of care, in need of protection. In need of counsel, and in need of-

*Brrrrrrrrrr*

- Nourishment.

The young redhead could only manage a wan smile at her hungry charge, as she gently lifted Mai’s head off her lap and unto a pillow, lest she disturb the young maiden’s sleep.

She softly stroked her friend’s hair once again.

“I won’t take long Mai.” She whispered in her ear.

And left her with a kiss on the forehead for reassurance.

“I’ll be right back.”



Grrr, still no answers *shakes fist*

Nice chapter though :)

And Myr gets his turn in the spotlight :heh: RF6 giving them a hard time there, though Nanoha still got knocked out :heh: Awesomely written and incredibly detailed chapter here :)

:D Thanks

Hopefully I can back up the action with nice fluff as well :D (Once I start writing it :p)

So then why can Agito and Signum apparently Unison well? Or could that be attributed to Signum herself also being a computer program (or... was)

Because its very much hinted at that Signum is Agito's original lord.

Wasn't it more like Rein being split off from Hayate's own Linker Core? So everything Rein has came from Hayate.

And we had that manga chapter where Nanoha theorized that Reinforce I had merged with Hayate...

:heh:
A Unison Device for Tesla, eh?
What'll her name be? Vectra?

Like I said, crack cloud. :heh: I'm not even sure this will get through. :eyespin:

Pretty ironic that Hayate was more powerful when she was 9 compared to how she is now.:p

Yet one more shaft. :upset:

Yare, yare...
*sirens go off*
The public haxxbusters have fallen to enemy attack. All available personnel, report for duty!

I fail to see how a UD would be H4XX... besides, its just one more of those ideas that most likely won't make it on paper anyway.

While Fate does know them the best, it's been a while since they've last been in a battle together. Around 8 years by my count. They may have been in contact due to the Weavers association with the Harlaown family(Chrono), but 8 years is along time to polish their team work together.

You have to remember that I was pitting a team of 4 fighters who have been involved in numerous situations together for the last 10 years, up agaisnt a team that while know each others strenghts inside and out, don't really fight together (shown in canon with the 1v1 battles).

The combo attack of the 3 knights at the beginning was successful, but they wern't prepared for the card that my OC's hold up their sleeve, the ability to launch attacks through their own shields. Getting hit point blank by what's essentially a S1 Divine buster isn't exactly the most common ways of getting countered.

Not just Fate... everyone's coming out of this heavily battered, some less than others of course. She did take a nasty hit, but the others also took equally nasty hits.

There's been no cries of haxx yet. Obviously I must be doing something right :p *runs*

Certainly, Tesla will have acounted for the weaver's strengths the next time, the next victory will not come easy. :D

Well, I was not denying the burn thing...just saying that the manga has way more detail. ;)

Ain't that the truth.

And :eek: I dont have this chapter! Could you tell me where I can get the latest chapters, please? I think I only have up till 5 translated. :)

... Have you tried the Manga thread? :heh:

Haha, wait, you misunderstood. I am not denying that lightning can do that--in fact, it SHOULD, that's why since the anime has never shown such details, you would go "USO DA!" when you see the manga bringing those details up. ;)

I don't find myself going USO DA! at it, though maybe that's because I'm generally very acceptant of such things. :heh:

A little random something I typed up to practice my skills, yet relevant to the OFM. Tell me what you guys think, please!


-snip-

Hush hush indeed. :nod: And I suppose even the TSAB would have people like this. There's a lot of worlds out there, after all.

More than a UD, I was tempted to make a familiar a few days back. Since Ren is suppose to be Shiki's familiar in Kagetsu Tohya, but oh well you beat me to it. :p

Familiars are actually a far better and far more logical choice then UD's. Unlike UD's, who are supposed to be extremely rare, familiars are very comon in Nanohaverse.

Speaking of which...

...how's ShamalPhanan coming along? If they need a boost, I can give it to them in LegendS...

Eh due to, lack of time/inspiration etc. not so much.

Snippet Time

I can't believe this chapter, despite its short length, took me that much longer to write.

Here's the continuation to my previous chapter.

-snip-



This one made me go 'aaaw' :blush:

Aaah :)

I smell an excuse to pair someone up with Shamal here due to his immunity:heh::uhoh:

Yes, yes it is. :D And the fact that he himself is a medic also helps.

He could duel wield, it's just not his regular style.

I'm thinking of something like,

Lightning + Fire = Plasma

Covenant's kind of plasma.

.... and just how powerfull is that?

They can't be that shallow...

... Could they :uhoh: ?

Have you read the latest posts? Of the one that complained there wasn't enough NXF in StrikerS?

Well now you know =_=

*shrug* indeed.

Like I've said, my bad, I thought you were refering to the cast time =_=

But in that case, I'll say he could only continuosly fire for 3mins on average.

Okay then.

Patch 1.3

The following changes have been made.

Pure Magic:


- Summoned Swords remains the same.
- Devil's Checkmate remains the same.
- Both Serrated Spiral and Serrated Cross has been intergrated into one.

**New Spell**

Serrated Fangs:

A mid-to-long range versatile projectile spell depending on how it is to be used.

-> Arc: The projectile takes the form of a 'C'-shape. Has increased speed, as well as cutting properties. Commonly used as a long-range, high speed spell to chase down enemies.

-> Spiral: The project takes the shape of a twirling spiral when the user spins it while casting. Commonly used to tear apart large numbers of enemies packed together at mid-range.

-> Cross: Unlike the previous two, this variation consist of two fangs instead of one. The first is modified for increased impact and durability, while the second is altered for a dramatic increase in velocity, at the cost of it's 'lifespan'. This spell could only be used at close or 'short'-mid-range as it's acceleration period dies out fast. This spell is commonly used for defense breaking.


Lightning:

- Sacred Edge remains the same.
- Raigeki remains the same.

- Maelstorm Superior could now also be used at close and mid range like Maelstorm Inferior. Maelstorm Ultimate remains the same.

- Rip.Steel.Soul. remains the same.
- Heaven's Drive remains the same.
- Kyutenougenraiseifukatenson remains the same.

- Lord of Vermilion is removed.


Fire:

- Hellion's Break now also burns on both physical and magical objects.

Okay, now the only thing left that needs hammering is the elemental spells being ritual thing.

Oh come on, those Hell Abyss aren't so tough once you learn to counter their nasty habit of rebouncing, popping out of the ground, and their fire elements...

(:p)

Melee skills we'll argue later, but the main point is also to show you the attitude Jeno carries to a fight. Notice Vergil's posture, style, and moves he decide to make in each of those situation...

For some reason the UD fever's pretty hot all of a sudden.I'm affected too. >_>It's been simmering for quite a while now... I seem to have reignited it.:heh::uhoh:


Threaten to brutalize her family and friends. Much easier said than done of course. :p That would probably do it... :uhoh:


Phanan: Tranquillizers don't taste as good. If your head hurts when you wake up, grab the next bottle.Acutally most pills I've had taste significantly better then alcohol and they work better, I maintain my opinion I'm going doctor shopping for one that will prescribe some heavy duty barbiturates. :p

That might encourage me to watch again. Really, the first episode added a crapload of completely unecisary stuff. The entire first episode was 'poor Jinto' this and 'poor Jinto' that. Hell, even the goodbye from his friend was not nearly as dramatic in the manga, it was actually a happy goodbye.
Never read the Manga I had warning and mostly just skimmed the first series Banners I and II are where the meat really starts.



More minions for Keroko... I mean fans, yeah, fans...


God is Keroko going to build a female Harem too…:uhoh::p


What? I'm confused here. Who's attack ranks at B+?Probably the guy with the uber defense. :p


Are you nuts? Who would wanna subject Rein to the agony of being a nun in a mountain full of senile of men? :uhoh:All her crazy protective fanboys I'd imagine. :p

snippy


Just one more part to go now. It shouldn't take too long as well since there won't be any actions scenes to painstakingly construct.

Thoughts please, if you have any, even if just to say that is sucked and you have to learn to write :pNice, course I'd seen a bunch of it before, but it was cool to see how it all turned out after I got an early look at it and it was very nice I don't have any real problem with the outcome maybe the aces will learn something here, being badass is good, but being a badass team is better. :cool:

Invasion of the UD's anyone?
I for one welcome our new Chibi overlords. :p

Yeah, thats what I had in mind too. Looking at hayate for example, despite her being specialized in nukes and her huge mana pool, spaming Hraesvelgr was very taxing.
Yeah mages don't seem to be able to unload their highest level spells for very long and even a handful of uses seems taxing, probably why we don't see Nanoha and company just leading off with starlight breakers and such.



So then why can Agito and Signum apparently Unison well? Or could that be attributed to Signum herself also being a computer program (or... was)As noted we get some heavy hinting Signum was her original master.


Lightning-resistant is not Lightning-immune.Both are extremely unlikely and unsupported elemental resistances and such just don't fit the setting IMO.


Well... She could like freeze Sharazad with the ice-capture spell shown in the manga...:heh:
See the issue here is that freezing people tends to be you know fatal what with them needing to breath and all.


Wasn't it more like Rein being split off from Hayate's own Linker Core? So everything Rein has came from Hayate.That was what I thought? :confused:




PF is then going to use the 'Softie Hayate' card...:uhoh:

More like the "Stupid Hayate" card. :p

Nah. Just 'Befriending' intent would do.:p
You can befriend them after they're dead or laying on the ground bleeding. :p


'Softie Hayate'...:uhoh:
But then, what's stopping Hayate from casting 'Ice Prison'?:p
Other then the fact that in reality freezing a human in a block of ice would probably kill them via horrible freezing suffocation?:eyebrow: "Softie Hayate" my foot. :p

<watches as Sharazad flinches consecutively to each of Tk's statements and breaks down even more>

Oh dear...:heh:
She was weak if she survives she'll be stronger if not she was unworthy to start with.


I'm glad I finally got over my temptation to make a Unison Device for Grandis...:heh:
Yeah we don't want to just make him an inverse male Hayate clone.

In any case, I completely fail to see how that would work.:p
Her minidress is pretty much figure-hugging already. Her legs are bare in her Knight Armor. The only thing that would soak and stick is her jacket. And her fainting from embarrassment due to her jacket contouring to her shoulders does not compute.:pIt might knock off her hat too. :p

That's why I said "rough" idea. Which would mean that even if they had an idea, they still wouldn't have the specifics nor sufficient knowledge nor technology for anything close to a replication :heh::heh::heh:
I happen to think it's more then rough and that they're very close to being able to replicate it ten or 15 years at most, but that's neither here or their and dosen't really effect OCs coming around during the StrikerS time frame, still for anyone set a few decades in the future I wouldn't object to them having UDs, but that's just me.

Yeah, I know about what plasma really is in real life. But the way I see it in the game and novel when the plasma grenade goes of is simple;

1. It can burn.

2. It has sparks.

But like I've said, it's all experimental at this point. I don't even have a proper scene where I could use it.

This is why I have him carry a sheath.

Darn can't view it anymore. :(

Snippet Time

I can't believe this chapter, despite its short length, took me that much longer to write.

Here's the continuation to my previous chapter.



Cranagan City Outskirts: Residential Districts
2058 hours.

It was a quaint little place, sandwiched in the middle of other similar places in the row of houses that occupied this side of the street, so conforming, and so typical. An unassuming and simple ranch bungalow, dark and seemingly unoccupied, its appearance illuminated only by the nearby streetlamp.

Inside that house, that light was all Gwen required, sitting by the edge of her humble bed in her small, silent room, watching the rain continue to pour outside...

A soft sniffle broke the silence, and her attention was captured by her charge, her young friend whose head laid on her lap. The girl with silky long black hair, and her soft, sleeping face, with an almost angelic expression, seemingly unknown to the worries of this world.

Except for the stain of tears that ran down her cheeks.

Another sniffle and Gwen responded with a slow, gentle stroke of her petite hands through the girl’s hair.

Even in sleep, the pain still lingered.

And Gwen’s empathies found it unbearably difficult to witness.

To see Mai so hurt, so miserable, so broken, to see one of her dearest friend’s anguish to this degree. A tortured soul who can only shed her agonies through her warm, salty tears.

Her heart suffered as much as Mai’s suffered. And Mai’s pain was her own as well.

A burden she gladly carried, a pain she suffered unconditionally, if this was required of her to ease her friend’s distress, no matter how seemingly fruitless or futile.

For if there was one thing she could not stand to see exist in this world, it was pain in a friend’s soul.

Especially pain caused by the acts of another.

“… Remi no… baka…” Mai murmured. Slowly, sadly, the subconscious revelation of a sad girl unconscious.

“I know.” Gwen replied softly, even though her words would not reach their intended recipient. Words that hung in the cool, damp air, claiming the silence for herself, as she thought about certain coincidences.

It was a good thing Gwen had been here when she did, called back here to Midchilda by an anonymous note, she had been preparing herself for what was presumably another mission by her employers. Pending their forthcoming orders, she had made herself comfortable here.

No, this place was already that, here in this small ranch bungalow along Pine Street, one of many such similar houses along this street, a common bungalow amongst uncountable others like it. And yet for her, this place was most than just a run-of-the-mill house.

Once, this was home.

This was a most familiar place to her; for three years she had lived here along with the other significant people in her life – her sisters by fate, Iris, Natalia and Ashelyn, and other companions from her current employers, most notably Cyrille. This simple house was a shelter from the turmoil and stress of the missions they undertook, the assignments they endured. It was an oasis of souls, where their bodies found rest, and their minds eased of all their troubles and worries. Amidst the confusion and uncertainty, here in this humble refuge did all of them find the most valuable, yet most fleeting of all human needs: Peace.

Here in this house, they were neither mere experiments nor employers. Neither weapons, nor servants to a higher power.

They were themselves. They were friends. They were sisters.

Most of all, they were family.

Though they no longer resided under its roof, the safehouse was still there, available, with its doors ever willing to provide them a shelter when in need.

All of them. Including Mai.

‘I wanted to see you.’

She recalled Mai’s words as she comforted her on the alleyway under the pouring rain, holding her by those cold shoulders, leading her destitute heart into refuge.

Gwen could not imagine what would’ve happened to Mai had she not been there. Had she not been here in this circumstance, walking out in the rain to grab some supplies for her own extended stay. Would Mai have been left alone, drenched in the cold, bitter rain, waiting for solace that would never come? A soul abandoned in the wet asphalt alley, consumed by the emptiness of the night? Cowering in anguish and despair?

None of that mattered now. She could only be glad that fate had not dealt them a more severe hand.

She was here, here for the weeping girl on her lap, the anguished soul of a sister in need.

In need of care, in need of protection. In need of counsel, and in need of-

*Brrrrrrrrrr*

- Nourishment.

The young redhead could only manage a wan smile at her hungry charge, as she gently lifted Mai’s head off her lap and unto a pillow, lest she disturb the young maiden’s sleep.

She softly stroked her friend’s hair once again.

“I won’t take long Mai.” She whispered in her ear.

And left her with a kiss on the forehead for reassurance.

“I’ll be right back.”




Considerable for the effort to show Mai's ties to both Smith and Gwen. I went awww too. :nod:

Nah, that's Tesla's department.

I for one welcome our new Chibi overlords. :p

Now there's a thought, a female UD with a Laharl-like personallity...

See the issue here is that freezing people tends to be you know fatal what with them needing to breath and all.

Concidering Rein tried to freeze Lutecia, obviously magical freezing is not nearly as lethal.

I happen to think it's more then rough and that they're very close to being able to replicate it ten or 15 years at most, but that's neither here or their and dosen't really effect OCs coming around during the StrikerS time frame, still for anyone set a few decades in the future I wouldn't object to them having UDs, but that's just me.

Personally? I think they have the technollogy, they just don't bother to replicate them because devices are far more reliable.

No, by the time of your post, my brain was literally cooked.

You know thats not going to help your recovery, right?

The lyrics of the song.

Oh.... meh, didn't really like it.

Are your that troubled by this, Keroko? Are you losing sleep over it? Is it constantly hounding you? Have you in fact, sweared by blood that come hell or high water, you're going to force me to attempt to come up with something poetic?!

I don't even like poetry :frustrated: !!

Doesn't need to be poetic. :p Just a few words, something cliche like 'I sumon the lightning' would do. The point is that using multiple elements has so far happened only once in canon. And that was Hayate, who used ritual spells. In fact every time someone without an atunement cast an elemental spell, they at least mubled some sort of incantation.

Though really, now I want to see your attempt at poetry. :D

Oh come on, those Hell Abyss aren't so tough once you learn to counter their nasty habit of rebouncing, popping out of the ground, and their fire elements...

(:p)

Melee skills we'll argue later, but the main point is also to show you the attitude Jeno carries to a fight. Notice Vergil's posture, style, and moves he decide to make in each of those situation...

Noted. :nod:

It was speculated by Zest, hinted by Agito and even Signum said that Agito's fire felt 'strangly comfortable'

You can always think of those as you go along. I've got a a whole squad of mellee
characters and I haven't really gone into any mellee spells for them. :heh: Same, pretty much though I know about what they can do I just don't have a list it's all pretty standard stuff thoguh and pretty much all simply variants of canon spells.
:nod:+Since all we've seen from Hayate have been Large Aoe's so it's always going to be a lot of power in the attack, regardless of numbers. Although I'd say there's a bunch of people trying to rectify that :p
Pretty much it seems Hayate can basiclly select between Grenade Launcher, Bazooka, and Howitzer when it comes to spells. :p


Lol... next thing we'll know that PF has underestimated his word count again and he'll dump a 10k+ short on us...:heh: Not that I mind. Acutally that seems almost assured.


Well I know that a lot of us live around the SE Asia region, which would account for big chunks of the backlog... although I usually go to sleep and wake up to find another page worth of posts to go over, so it's not like we all live here.
Indeed we had a quick poll a little while back of where everyone lived and this thread seems to feature and improbably large number of Malaysians in particular as I recall.:heh:


How do we keep up... Not sure about the other's, but learning to skip over the posts that aren't releveant to you is one of my methods.
Yeah I tend to first quote anything that concerns me then skim for stuff that doesn’t, but that I find interesting or note worthy.

While Fate does know them the best, it's been a while since they've last been in a battle together. Around 8 years by my count. They may have been in contact due to the Weavers association with the Harlaown family(Chrono), but 8 years is along time to polish their team work together.
And just get more powerful and learn new skills in general.


There's been no cries of haxx yet. Obviously I must be doing something right :p*runs*Well I got a copy before hand so I had a fair idea what might be coming so I’m obviously not going to be crying hax.

More than a UD, I was tempted to make a familiar a few days back. Since Ren is suppose to be Shiki's familiar in Kagetsu Tohya, but oh well you beat me to it. :pWell that wouldn't have been any kind of problem those are common as dirt.


:heh:Admit it Aaron, our poor Hayate deserves some hawt scenes for good and love! *runs*

:heh::heh::heh:

Aren't you supposed to be one of the guys defending her honor? :eyebrow:

I don't mind too, I'm just envious of how he can write so well. :rolleyes:Allot of it really is practice the more you do the better you'll get I look back at some of my writings now (I have stuff I wrote over five eyars ago on my HD) and cringe so to repeat like anything it comes down to practice, practice, practice.

I forgot what happened in the previous chapters, but is the limiter release only for the Weavers? Because even though tactics and all is good and important, I just find it hard to swallow that they managed to beat a bunch of S class mages that (relatively) easily.
I don't given said S ranks penchant for rather abysmal tactics and teamwork.

I won't say its haxx, but I expected more than one Weaver going down. Still it was a good read, though I have the same opinion as someone did. The first person view kinda limited the scope and perspective of the battle a bit.

That sounds quite haxxed. :p
Sounds.:eyebrow: Never mind that I'd call this fluid control which is entirely different then a water elementalist.

If we follow my Retcon Senario, which I posited but have not confirmed, then there are at least 3 flag officers who're watching the OFM's backs: Lindy, who's under the impression that they're a bunch of secret do-gooders (an impression that O'Neill and Erick reinforce), Leti, who has more in-depth knowledge of what they do and is more practical, going "There are things I don't want to know," and O'Neill, who's AF and using the OFM as a template for AFSOC...
Yeah that works and provides more opportunity for friction between him and Lindy, but on the flip side if you think about Lindy’s husband is dead and O’Neil is long divorced and both of them are way older then most of the cast or OCs...

Agreed. Curiously, Last night, after replaying Death From Above in Arcade Mode, I had this dream of the TV operator's view... as the AC-130 attacks Gadget Drones. :heh:I’ve had weird dreams after nights of heavy gaming/anime too…

Oh yeah :heh:Plot contrivances can sometime bring out some of the most unusual romances ever :heh:I've never minded a few of them, but I prefer to keep them limited and not build entire scenes or stories around them obviously, lord knows I'm going to need a few to make the Felix/Vita angle work.:heh::uhoh:

Nah, that's Tesla's department. You sure Keroko seems to be doing a fine job as well. :p


Now there's a thought, a female UD with a Laharl-like personallity...

Evil UD: Kneel before me!
Peasant Serf: Umm how you're like a foot tall? :confused:

Concidering Rein tried to freeze Lutecia, obviously magical freezing is not nearly as lethal.Or she would have ended up traumatized for life when she figured out it WAS and that she’d accidentally murdered a little girl. :p

More seriously I can see maybe freezing their feet or something, but acutally encasing someone in Ice just strikes me rather deadly no matter how you spin it, and anything less is probably just going to be a minor irritant as even a very weak mage would be able to smash a bit of ice around his limbs rather quickly so you'd need to basiclly bury him to have much effect.


Personally? I think they have the technollogy, they just don't bother to replicate them because devices are far more reliable.
That's another option, but UD do have some uses so you'd think we'd see a few of them. *shrugs*


It was speculated by Zest, hinted by Agito and even Signum said that Agito's fire felt 'strangly comfortable'Snickers *as he finds the idea of fire being comfortable inherently humorous.*:p

Controlling the entire arsenal of an AC-130 Gunship?!?!?!?! :eek:

WANT MOST BAAAAAAAAAADLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Haha, this is one of my favorite missions. Evar.

Now THAT's an assassination :heh: Collapsing the floor with a Jet Magnum was awesome though :D

Erick's jump though reminded me of Gundam 00's first episode though, when the Exia was dropping out of the sky :heh:
Lol, I guess Kagerou finally saw Gundam 00. On the other hand, jumping off buildings is in a lotta muvies... I'm in the midst of writing something similar, but it's a snatch and grab, contrasting the assasination.

GAR?

Tsundere?

Meganekko?

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v11/USSKenji64296/jawdrop.gifhttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v11/USSKenji64296/jawdrop.gifhttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v11/USSKenji64296/jawdrop.gif

What kind of ABSOLUTE WINNING COMBINATION IS THIS?!?!?!?!?!
The kind that comes by inspiration, and never by design. :p Plus, watching the Shana II op was what gave me the idea, since Shana is a tsundere who's pretty gar in the OP. That, and I suddenly realised that in order for Franz to be taking Naomi more seriously, she'd have to develop gar, because Franz respects gar.

The meganekko was crack though.

Pretty much it seems Hayate can basiclly select between Grenade Launcher, Bazooka, and Howitzer when it comes to spells. :p
If Nanoha and Fate are F-22s, Hayate is an AC-130. :D Or a B-52.

Allot of it really is practice the more you do the better you'll get I look back at some of my writings now (I have stuff I wrote over five eyars ago on my HD) and cringe so to repeat like anything it comes down to practice, practice, practice.
I know what you mean... I've been writing fanfiction on and off for 7 years, and the crap I used to put out seven years ago... *winces*

I don't given said S ranks penchant for rather abysmal tactics and teamwork.
I think this can probably be blamed on the Japanese mindset though. The standard Asian/Arab mindset appears to be skewed to the idea of one on one battles, so Nanoha & Co would be perfectly happy going in one on one...

Though I'm pretty sure O'Neill and the OFM will be looking for gunship support. :heh: Something I'm writing is a ten on 5 mock battle, OFM Assault Platoon vs Nanoha and the Forwards; I'm trying to give a realistic portrayal of how it'd work.

Then I'm going to ramp it up by bringing in a 5-man wing of the OFM Air Unit, and explore the possibilities of air cover supporting ground troops against the White Devil and her students...

Yeah that works and provides more opportunity for friction between him and Lindy, but on the flip side if you think about Lindy’s husband is dead and O’Neil is long divorced and both of them are way older then most of the cast or OCs...

Hmmm? I don't it... what's wrong with a possible O'Neill/Lindy relationship? Antagonistic co-workers learning to get along and falling in lo-

Price: "Shit, it's gotten to him! Soap! Take him down before he finishes!"

I’ve had weird dreams after nights of heavy gaming/anime too…
I'm kinda glad I'm not the only one... I have an ACTUAL vid from an AC-130U mission in Afghanistan, the real deal, no shit (the only difference from COD4 is that there's no infinite ammo and less shooting), and in that, the FCO instructs the gunners not to shoot the mosque...I suppose places of religious worship are no-nos for Spectre crews. Though the gunners just opened up on the Taliban once they got out... and they actually did snipe the infantry with the 105mm, so you aren't alone. As am I. :heh:

BTW, what's your best score for Death From Above in Arcade mode? Mine's 112k plus... <.<

"Surely you can't be serious."
"I am. And don't call me Shirley."
It was teh awesome. Some to the Awe. Totally different from the chase in terms of feeling and mood; I guess IW figured we all needed something to lift our spirits after the drama...

My laptop matches COD4s requirements, but because I'm using intergrated graphics (Radeon Xpress 1100), it lags like hell.... except on the Gunship Mission. Oh the Gunship mission... in the last 2 days, I've been playing it over and over. That, and the Nice Plane Ride. ^__^

I fail to see how a UD would be H4XX... besides, its just one more of those ideas that most likely won't make it on paper anyway.

But.. But we're supposed to be immune to these soughts of ideas :p

Certainly, Tesla will have acounted for the weaver's strengths the next time, the next victory will not come easy. :D

:heh: It's already a close call without the teamwork on the opposing side. The next time they meet (if they ever do meet) in a mock battle, the Weaver's would most likely find them selves on the losing side.. unless of course the Aces still acting as one-man armies.. which I would hope not after the demonstration that was just applied.

It would be a different story if it was the whole 8 man team... Although that's never going to happen, since it would a absolute nightmare to write.

Nice, course I'd seen a bunch of it before, but it was cool to see how it all turned out after I got an early look at it and it was very nice I don't have any real problem with the outcome maybe the aces will learn something here, being badass is good, but being a badass team is better. :cool:

I for one welcome our new Chibi overlords. :p

:D Yeah, hopefully they'll be able to take things away from this. I read it somewhere else on the forums and I totally agree with the statement.

The most teamwork that we see Fate and Nanoha do is in the op. Or something like that.

Although if they became a badass team, then they'd just start destoying everything in their path...:uhoh:

But... but... it's an AWESOME COMBINATION :D:D:D

And we're gonna have the backlog ready for him :nod:

I still don't see how you can be GAR and tsundere at the same time........

:nod: :nod:
:heh: Same, pretty much though I know about what they can do I just don't have a list it's all pretty standard stuff thoguh and pretty much all simply variants of canon spells.

:nod: You're saying this to the guy who has "standard binds, defences" at the bottom of a lot of his OC's. No point making it up if what's available is already fine :D

Pretty much it seems Hayate can basiclly select between Grenade Launcher, Bazooka, and Howitzer when it comes to spells. :p

:nod: :nod:

Indeed we had a quick poll a little while back of where everyone lived and this thread seems to feature and improbably large number of Malaysians in particular as I recall.:heh:

yep, thats true. We've got USB, nightengale, PF, FA, Goose, Kagerou off the top of my head. Then there's Chaos and Tormenk (soon Kha) right below them in Singapore. I'm not in Malaysia but I'm in the same time zone as the rest of them :heh:

Sounds Interesting :D I don't envy you the task of writing that... I know how bad it can be trying to make sure everything makes sense... ALthough admittedly it's probably a bit easier in 1st person since the POV can cut out some writing.

The assault platoon is ground troops only right? So no fliers. That's going to be tough.. Having Nanoha floating above you shooting would ruin anyones day..:uhoh: Also tough is the fact the rest of them have acess to rudimentry flight so just catching them is going to be an issue.

I can't see the first shot going all that well for the OFM, but the second round with teh Air guys should be a much better challenge.

The next time they meet (if they ever do meet) in a mock battle, the Weaver's would most likely find them selves on the losing side.. unless of course the Aces still acting as one-man armies.. which I would hope not after the demonstration that was just applied.

Like hell. Tesla would not stand for that.

It would be a different story if it was the whole 8 man team... Although that's never going to happen, since it would a absolute nightmare to write.

Agreed. :heh:

Ninja edit away!:mad:
*chuckles* Looks like the only Volkenritter who aren't paired yet are Signum and Zafira.Signum has suitors, crazy ones, but still suitors. :heh:

Haha, this is one of my favorite missions. Evar.
Indeed this is right up their with the car chase in the first COD.



I think this can probably be blamed on the Japanese mindset though. The standard Asian/Arab mindset appears to be skewed to the idea of one on one battles, so Nanoha & Co would be perfectly happy going in one on one...

Though I'm pretty sure O'Neill and the OFM will be looking for gunship support. :heh: Something I'm writing is a ten on 5 mock battle, OFM Assault Platoon vs Nanoha and the Forwards; I'm trying to give a realistic portrayal of how it'd work.

Then I'm going to ramp it up by bringing in a 5-man wing of the OFM Air Unit, and explore the possibilities of air cover supporting ground troops against the White Devil and her students...
Trying to fight flight mages from the ground is gonna be rough, but it might be doable in the right terrain and with the right forces, and O'Neil would probably skip the gunship and go right to "limited" orbital strikes... :uhoh:

Hmmm? I don't it... what's wrong with a possible O'Neill/Lindy relationship? Antagonistic co-workers learning to get along and falling in lo-

Price: "Shit, it's gotten to him! Soap! Take him down before he finishes!"
You know this was about like how the Vita/Felix thing started and now I'm serious about that... :uhoh:

I'm kinda glad I'm not the only one... I have an ACTUAL vid from an AC-130U mission in Afghanistan, the real deal, no shit (the only difference from COD4 is that there's no infinite ammo and less shooting), and in that, the FCO instructs the gunners not to shoot the mosque...I suppose places of religious worship are no-nos for Spectre crews. Though the gunners just opened up on the Taliban once they got out... and they actually did snipe the infantry with the 105mm, so you aren't alone. As am I. :heh:

BTW, what's your best score for Death From Above in Arcade mode? Mine's 112k plus... <.<
Well you know when winning hears and minds bombing religious buildings tends to be a downer... :uhoh: Also the ammo isn't even really and issue if you count you're shots during the mission I bet you'll see they aren't even close to an A-130Us max payload it has as I recall at least 100 105mm rounds for instance the thing IS a damn cargo plane that was oftne used to carry ammo for other forces. :uhoh:

"Surely you can't be serious."
"I am. And don't call me Shirley."
It was teh awesome. Some to the Awe. Totally different from the chase in terms of feeling and mood; I guess IW figured we all needed something to lift our spirits after the drama...
Yeah COD4 had a bit of a downer ending. :( the Ep did indeed do a bit to lighten it.

And the image that Signum is techically getting a fiery charge from within does not help either. :p That’ll give heart burn a whole new meaning and let me tell you it sucks, some of the pills I took when I was younger would disagree with me terribly and I’d just be laid out for hours clutching my stomach as it felt like somewhat was burning out of my gut with a blowtorch.


Will do. Though she already has the tomboy thing going for her to help.
LOL I was even going to mention she stuck me as more tomboyish, but see to me an onee-sama and tomboy are kinda opposed archetypes as the onee-sama is supposed to be elegant and proper and stuff while a tomboy well… isn’t.:uhoh::heh:

But it shows fire can be comfortable, if treated propperly, no?I never really liked it anyway it was either way to hot close to it or too cool further away I'd have just cracked the heat, the only thing it was good for was toasting marshmallows, and no I don't have a romantic bone in my body. :p

That house also had heaters that where like mini-furnaces in various rooms IE they had an real honest to god fire going on inside them when they were on, and those things lighting up with a big "fmmmoph!" in the middle of the night always made me distinctly uncomfortable. :uhoh::p


He're the best part: It's not even a gaming laptop. Its my school laptop.I bet it's just screaming "pleeease killlllll meeee!!!" when you boot up COD:4. :p

'resistant' is a better word.Indeed nothing is immune to anything really.


Hmm three out of my rigs should be able to handle that, although probably have to set my graphics at medium, or even low :heh:You'd need a true monster rig to max everything to be sure.

You don't need an OC to pair Zafira, give him Arf :heh:

Signum on the other hand... :heh:
Already has at least two guys that would probably literary fight over her... to the death. :uhoh:


I'm not sure if he has, but yeah it's a familiar scene in movies. Although I was reminded of 00 first :heh: (The only other I can think of is Motoko's habit of jumping off buildings in GiTS :heh: )
The Master Chief also enjoys jumping from things, though he prefers space ships. :p Johnson even remarks on this:

I don't even like poetry :frustrated: !!

How hard can it be to make something up? You could always do something like this:
"Jagged elements dancing in the skies, gather to my hand and explode with the ferocity you possess, Maelstorm Superior!"

"I call upon the raging elements, the fury of the storm. Come to me. Surround me and fill me with your power. With the shining gods at your side, surge and strike down all upon this stage amidst Heaven and Earth! Kyu. Ten. Ou. Gen. Rai. Sei. Fu. Ka. Ten. Son!"

Well, Tsunderes are known to get angry, and some can be quite violent...

However, some can also be angry and violent without losing it, and thus have the potential to become GAR :heh:

2007-11-19, 10:09
Although if they became a badass team, then they'd just start destoying everything in their path...:uhoh:
And that might totally kill all the drama and stuff, since they're both unstoppable if they work together....

I still don't see how you can be GAR and tsundere at the same time........
Not exactly at the same time, but close enough; Naomi turns off the tsundere when it's time to be GAR and turns on the tsundere once the time for GAR has passed.

:nod: You're saying this to the guy who has "standard binds, defences" at the bottom of a lot of his OC's. No point making it up if what's available is already fine :D
I always thought that the defenses were pretty much standardised among Devices and such, really, though binds could be more individualistic (such as Chrono's Struggle Bind or Franz's taser rendition of Lightning Bind).

yep, thats true. We've got USB, nightengale, PF, FA, Goose, Kagerou off the top of my head. Then there's Chaos and Tormenk (soon Kha) right below them in Singapore. I'm not in Malaysia but I'm in the same time zone as the rest of them :heh:
Kagerou's actually from Georgia. ^^;; He lives there, but keeps some weird hours.

Sounds Interesting :D I don't envy you the task of writing that... I know how bad it can be trying to make sure everything makes sense... ALthough admittedly it's probably a bit easier in 1st person since the POV can cut out some writing.

The assault platoon is ground troops only right? So no fliers. That's going to be tough.. Having Nanoha floating above you shooting would ruin anyones day..:uhoh: Also tough is the fact the rest of them have acess to rudimentry flight so just catching them is going to be an issue.

I can't see the first shot going all that well for the OFM, but the second round with teh Air guys should be a much better challenge.

Actually, Ivanovich and a couple of other Bravo Squad guys can fly, but nothing like on the level of Nanoha and Fate. When your squad is somewhat skewed to sniping, flight is very convinient for getting to sniping spots.

Signum has suitors, crazy ones, but still suitors. :heh:
Ah, I see. So she's the cold aloof maiden type, eh?

Indeed this is right up their with the car chase in the first COD.
Haha, yeah. Man, the commentry between Ender and Moody...

Trying to fight flight mages from the ground is gonna be rough, but it might be doable in the right terrain and with the right forces, and O'Neil would probably skip the gunship and go right to "limited" orbital strikes... :uhoh:
Like I said, Ivanovich and a couple of Bravo Squad guys know how to fly, but there is no way for them to win on Nanoha's terms, and Franz, for all his hot blood, knows that. It's an urban warfare senario, and what they do is they use ambush tactics and stay low and inside buildings, forcing Nanoha to go low... though then they have to contend with the Forwards in CQB...
You know this was about like how the Vita/Felix thing started and now I'm serious about that... :uhoh:
So now we're going to work on Lindy/O'Neill now? :uhoh:

Gaz: "Soap! For god's sake, take him out!"

Well you know when winning hears and minds bombing religious buildings tends to be a downer... :uhoh: Also the ammo isn't even really and issue if you count you're shots during the mission I bet you'll see they aren't even close to an A-130Us max payload it has as I recall at least 100 105mm rounds for instance the thing IS a damn cargo plane that was oftne used to carry ammo for other forces. :uhoh:
Hmmm.... I'd forgotten that, actually. I'll replay it again and make note of my ammo.

Yeah COD4 had a bit of a downer ending. :( the Ep did indeed do a bit to lighten it.
Well, it was a downer, but at least they made up for it a bit... say what you will about IW, but that was a damn quality single-player campaign. Now if only we could somehow merge the awesomeness of that campaign with Nanoha....:uhoh:

LOL I was even going to mention she stuck me as more tomboyish, but see to me an onee-sama and tomboy are kinda opposed archetypes as the onee-sama is supposed to be elegant and proper and stuff while a tomboy well… isn’t.:uhoh::heh:
Maybe she's a tomboy onee-chan then... or an elegant onee-sama with a split personality of a tomboy?

Indeed nothing is immune to anything really.
One might say that it's like kevlar. Bullet resistant, yes. Bulletproof? Hell no.
...especially with a modern heavy bolter round... <.<

That might not be a good idea you know what the Air Crews call the B-1?

The Bone.

*runs*
Why is that- oh. Oooooh. Boner.
*runs*

And regarding the heavy bolter you mentioned a few pages back, I cannot believe I had forgotten about it or the Mk 19. Using both of those on Gadget Drones...

:heh: Indeed :D Although who else would do it. ODST's?
Yep. I actually thought about having the OFM do orbital drops, since they use ODST armor as their barrier jackets, but Kagerou talked me outta it...

:heh: Yep, can't do much about us now :p
We malaysians and asians have an innate ability to spam and to increase backlog. Look at 2ch, it's one hugeass flamewar.

And here comes another cracktastic pairing...

If it can be made to work.... I don't see anything wrong....

just a snap question:

do you call a villain that has:

- Millennia of planning
- Access to/ use of technologies unheard/deemed implausible/impossible of in the Bureau
- 'Countless' numbers and types of minions.
- Ultra-Loyal subjects- yes with no hint of swaying loyalty ever.
- Said subjects powerful on their own (matter/'time' manipulation, etc).
- Has incalculable powers, weapons and techniques- so powerful that even the CCs and most of the OCs have a hard time dealing with just his subjects.
- A burning desire to Transcend Space and Time (whatever that means).
- A burning desire for total destruction just to retrieve items that are the keys to the above desire.

Haxx?

What do you think? Of course it is. Just 2 of those are very h4xx already.

Besides, one of my favorite things in fiction is seeing villains 'struggle' and grow from their battles with the heroes. Which is why Hadlar of DnD is so appealing. :p

Yup, and he has a wide variety of prothetics to boot. His entire left arm, for example. As for his face.... well a picture says more then a thousand words:

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y191/Liinna/Nanoha/TonPhanan.png

Although it seems that Belka healing magic does have some effect, hence why he spends time with Shamal every once in a while. ;)

"Mariel-san, you handle the reinforcements of his mechanical frames. Anesthetic officer, handle the drip at 16... no, 10, and adjust according the the mechanical adjustment rates. Stabilize the adrelanine flows, and do not let overcharge of electricity bypass... This is the sensitive part..."

Following reformation of large safenus vena, to prepare for grafting on the coronary arteries, and adjust the heart-lung machine at on-off, per the surgeon's movement...

This was something extremely impossible. A tri-linked surgery on the mechanical aspects, magical and physical... A surgeon, mage-doctor and engineer together in the operating theater... It had broken all regulations of official medicine, especially since... a nurse, Astra was assigned to handle the grafting, a nurse... a nurse... holding a knife. In the worst case scenario, his license as a nurse would be permanently revoked.

But human life was at stake. The medical team faced the possibilities of trial... But this team is one... one to save life. That is why...

Astra said it. The forbidden word.

"Beaver knife."


AI DON'T FREAKING KNOW ANYMORE!

Just give me what you think, I don't even care or think about how long he can fire all those because that's not how I intend for him to fight. So even if you said 10 seconds, go ahead. 10 seconds it is.

2 seconds? Sure.

...I need my drugs. -_-

The point was that you clearly never thought things through. -_-

Just one more part to go now. It shouldn't take too long as well since there won't be any actions scenes to painstakingly construct.

Thoughts please, if you have any, even if just to say that is sucked and you have to learn to write :p

Quite nice. There are parts where it didn't feel so smooth in transition, but narratives so forgivable.

:nod:

I would like to disagree on the point that they helped to create Rein. I mean, if they have a rough idea, why don't they get the entire process out from Hayate while they're helping her?

The answer I suspect is that Rein's creation is unique to Hayate, via the process similiar to that of the guardian knight system.

We know too little to make an assestment anyway.

Besides, the first thing that crossed my mind was "why wait 2 years?"

So do I, but for me its a tad more complicated. Its impossible for Keroko to even unision to begin with, concidering the state of her Linker Core. It would completely destroy any UD trying to Unision with her.

That leaves Tesla...

Who is Belkan...

Ancient Belkan at that...

GAH! Windows! Windows! Must open windows!

I know... it's appealing...

Next best thing is to have Yuuno in on it as well. :D

Oh well I can dream.. >_>

Yes, it's a dream, because Yuuno is not in SS04's cast list. >_<

In any case, I completely fail to see how that would work.:p
Her minidress is pretty much figure-hugging already. Her legs are bare in her Knight Armor. The only thing that would soak and stick is her jacket. And her fainting from embarrassment due to her jacket contouring to her shoulders does not compute.:p

Now... Let's see if this makes some imaginations run wild for me to bash into place.:p

That's true, rarely do people post in there. I did not know that more manga chapters were being scanlated, though. :)
Yeah it was a real pain to find for me before I found the manga thread.


Very weird indeed... :uhoh:
She's also oddly attractive. :heh:


Was that all you needed? :)
Yup. Thanks!!! :D


Well, since I've seen images of both Ren and White Ren next to each other, I thought they were different persons. :heh: Now apparently she is Ren's evil innerself.

Though now that I think about it, if they are the same person...:uhoh: I could make it so Ren specializes in Illusions, and White Ren in bombardment...Hmm... BTW, does she have a name? Or just Ren? :heh:
She's mostly referred to as White Ren, don't see another name for her.

But you planning to make her....schizophrenic? Split personalities? :twitch:


Those Fon Artes could be of the Lyrical Magic type... Though knowing that doesnt help much. :heh:
Yeah but if I read LoweGear's Lyrical Magic concept right, it isn't intended for offensive spells, but some Fonic artes and hymns ARE offensive in nature.


Yeah, I also assume that her spells are partially composed of lightning elemental.

Regarding Plasma Smasher, I would assume that the Lightning Fall spell is easier to cast, or requires less energy, than Plasma Smasher. Such level of AMF could have probably been pwned by PS anyway, though.

Ah well, not much proof anywhere anyway. I made the theory above because of the existence and need of the weather manipulation spells. :heh: If Fate's regular spells were completely elemental, she wouldnt have needed to cast a weather manipulation one, ne? ;)
Yeah that's true. If that's the case then its probably true that a 100% lightning spell would require incantations of arias, while a partial one can rely on the mages natural ability to convert mana into that element.

A possible theory is that a lightning bolt of that kind of scale can't possibly be created by a mage, or at least it might probably need SSS rank or something. Though I'm stretching it a bit again. :heh:


I have not updated my ficlet because I am in the process of completely rebuilding it. Most, if not all, of what I have written so far is no longer true. However, since this arc takes place quite far into the future, you probably wont know what happened to my group until much later...though one thing is for sure, they are no longer in Mid-Childa. ;)

Trying to organize a gathering is making me go nuts. :eyespin:

Lyrical Magic at its most basic is basically just manipulating Sound, allowing you the mage (or in the case of Lyrical Magic practictioners, Meistros) to modify sound in a near unlimited manner of ways. It'll basically be like an audiophile's wet dream :heh:

There is the second type of Lyrical Magic though, which'll uses the Music itself as a medium for magic - basically, the music itself is treated similarly to an element, and can be used to deliver various spells of all kinds.
Will it allow offensive spells? Because what I understand from what I read is that it doesn't.

Like I said, crack cloud. :heh: I'm not even sure this will get through. :eyespin:
It actually sounds possible, but don't know what the others think.


Familiars are actually a far better and far more logical choice then UD's. Unlike UD's, who are supposed to be extremely rare, familiars are very comon in Nanohaverse.
Familiars actually take a portion of the mage's mana pool, though in exchange the mage gets a combat partner that can be trained to complement their tactics and skills.

Indeed we had a quick poll a little while back of where everyone lived and this thread seems to feature and improbably large number of Malaysians in particular as I recall.:heh:
Which actually surprised even me. I expected more Americans seeing as this is an American board, but I guess not many Americans are into OC stuffs for nanohaverse.


Well that wouldn't have been any kind of problem those are common as dirt.
I don't think they are really as common as dirt. IMO the mage would need to be at a certain rank to be able to maintain a constant mana linkage to a familiar. As seen so far only high ranked mages have them, I hardly think the regular grunts would be able to have one. Though that being said I don't think they are really that rare either.


Aren't you supposed to be one of the guys defending her honor? :eyebrow:
Well those scenes should only involve a special person then. :D


Allot of it really is practice the more you do the better you'll get I look back at some of my writings now (I have stuff I wrote over five eyars ago on my HD) and cringe so to repeat like anything it comes down to practice, practice, practice.
True.


I don't given said S ranks penchant for rather abysmal tactics and teamwork.
I don't think Fate has problems with teamwork, seeing that she was paired with her familiar Arf for years.


Sounds.:eyebrow: Never mind that I'd call this fluid control which is entirely different then a water elementalist.
I'd think a lot would depend on how much and how far this fluid control goes.

No, I would never have figured it out all on my own.


*Tries to put on a straight face*


Oh.... meh, didn't really like it.



Doesn't need to be poetic. :p Just a few words, something cliche like 'I sumon the lightning' would do. The point is that using multiple elements has so far happened only once in canon. And that was Hayate, who used ritual spells. In fact every time someone without an atunement cast an elemental spell, they at least mubled some sort of incantation.

I JUST CAN'T DO IT @_@ !!!! Blue-cheese I can take, epic-cheese is fine, sweet-cheese is the stuff I live on,

BUT CHEESY cliche lines like that would drive me insane!

Following reformation of large safenus vena, to prepare for grafting on the coronary arteries, and adjust the heart-lung machine at on-off, per the surgeon's movement...

This was something extremely impossible. A tri-linked surgery on the mechanical aspects, magical and physical... A surgeon, mage-doctor and engineer together in the operating theater... It had broken all regulations of official medicine, especially since... a nurse, Astra was assigned to handle the grafting, a nurse... a nurse... holding a knife. In the worst case scenario, his license as a nurse would be permanently revoked.

But human life was at stake. The medical team faced the possibilities of trial... But this team is one... one to save life. That is why...

Astra said it. The forbidden word.

"Beaver knife."

Yes, it's a dream, because Yuuno is not in SS04's cast list. >_<

*Delayed realization sets in*

Darn. :(:rolleyes:



Yeah that's true. If that's the case then its probably true that a 100% lightning spell would require incantations of arias, while a partial one can rely on the mages natural ability to convert mana into that element.

A possible theory is that a lightning bolt of that kind of scale can't possibly be created by a mage, or at least it might probably need SSS rank or something. Though I'm stretching it a bit again. :heh:

It's pretty hard to say. The storm was supercharged by Fate to throw enough energy to force activate the jewel seeds in the ocean and she was around AAA then.


Familiars actually take a portion of the mage's mana pool, though in exchange the mage gets a combat partner that can be trained to complement their tactics and skills.

In Fate's case, her own development far out-striped Arf until the two had quite a power gap. :heh:

While Fate does know them the best, it's been a while since they've last been in a battle together. Around 8 years by my count. They may have been in contact due to the Weavers association with the Harlaown family(Chrono), but 8 years is along time to polish their team work together.

You have to remember that I was pitting a team of 4 fighters who have been involved in numerous situations together for the last 10 years, up agaisnt a team that while know each others strenghts inside and out, don't really fight together (shown in canon with the 1v1 battles).

The combo attack of the 3 knights at the beginning was successful, but they wern't prepared for the card that my OC's hold up their sleeve, the ability to launch attacks through their own shields. Getting hit point blank by what's essentially a S1 Divine buster isn't exactly the most common ways of getting countered.

Not just Fate... everyone's coming out of this heavily battered, some less than others of course. She did take a nasty hit, but the others also took equally nasty hits.

Snippet Time

I can't believe this chapter, despite its short length, took me that much longer to write.

Here's the continuation to my previous chapter.



Cranagan City Outskirts: Residential Districts
2058 hours.

It was a quaint little place, sandwiched in the middle of other similar places in the row of houses that occupied this side of the street, so conforming, and so typical. An unassuming and simple ranch bungalow, dark and seemingly unoccupied, its appearance illuminated only by the nearby streetlamp.

Inside that house, that light was all Gwen required, sitting by the edge of her humble bed in her small, silent room, watching the rain continue to pour outside...

A soft sniffle broke the silence, and her attention was captured by her charge, her young friend whose head laid on her lap. The girl with silky long black hair, and her soft, sleeping face, with an almost angelic expression, seemingly unknown to the worries of this world.

Except for the stain of tears that ran down her cheeks.

Another sniffle and Gwen responded with a slow, gentle stroke of her petite hands through the girl’s hair.

Even in sleep, the pain still lingered.

And Gwen’s empathies found it unbearably difficult to witness.

To see Mai so hurt, so miserable, so broken, to see one of her dearest friend’s anguish to this degree. A tortured soul who can only shed her agonies through her warm, salty tears.

Her heart suffered as much as Mai’s suffered. And Mai’s pain was her own as well.

A burden she gladly carried, a pain she suffered unconditionally, if this was required of her to ease her friend’s distress, no matter how seemingly fruitless or futile.

For if there was one thing she could not stand to see exist in this world, it was pain in a friend’s soul.

Especially pain caused by the acts of another.

“… Remi no… baka…” Mai murmured. Slowly, sadly, the subconscious revelation of a sad girl unconscious.

“I know.” Gwen replied softly, even though her words would not reach their intended recipient. Words that hung in the cool, damp air, claiming the silence for herself, as she thought about certain coincidences.

It was a good thing Gwen had been here when she did, called back here to Midchilda by an anonymous note, she had been preparing herself for what was presumably another mission by her employers. Pending their forthcoming orders, she had made herself comfortable here.

No, this place was already that, here in this small ranch bungalow along Pine Street, one of many such similar houses along this street, a common bungalow amongst uncountable others like it. And yet for her, this place was most than just a run-of-the-mill house.

Once, this was home.

This was a most familiar place to her; for three years she had lived here along with the other significant people in her life – her sisters by fate, Iris, Natalia and Ashelyn, and other companions from her current employers, most notably Cyrille. This simple house was a shelter from the turmoil and stress of the missions they undertook, the assignments they endured. It was an oasis of souls, where their bodies found rest, and their minds eased of all their troubles and worries. Amidst the confusion and uncertainty, here in this humble refuge did all of them find the most valuable, yet most fleeting of all human needs: Peace.

Here in this house, they were neither mere experiments nor employers. Neither weapons, nor servants to a higher power.

They were themselves. They were friends. They were sisters.

Most of all, they were family.

Though they no longer resided under its roof, the safehouse was still there, available, with its doors ever willing to provide them a shelter when in need.

All of them. Including Mai.

‘I wanted to see you.’

She recalled Mai’s words as she comforted her on the alleyway under the pouring rain, holding her by those cold shoulders, leading her destitute heart into refuge.

Gwen could not imagine what would’ve happened to Mai had she not been there. Had she not been here in this circumstance, walking out in the rain to grab some supplies for her own extended stay. Would Mai have been left alone, drenched in the cold, bitter rain, waiting for solace that would never come? A soul abandoned in the wet asphalt alley, consumed by the emptiness of the night? Cowering in anguish and despair?

None of that mattered now. She could only be glad that fate had not dealt them a more severe hand.

She was here, here for the weeping girl on her lap, the anguished soul of a sister in need.

In need of care, in need of protection. In need of counsel, and in need of-

*Brrrrrrrrrr*

- Nourishment.

The young redhead could only manage a wan smile at her hungry charge, as she gently lifted Mai’s head off her lap and unto a pillow, lest she disturb the young maiden’s sleep.

She softly stroked her friend’s hair once again.

“I won’t take long Mai.” She whispered in her ear.

And left her with a kiss on the forehead for reassurance.

“I’ll be right back.”

This is very nice!:D It's grest to see what has been happening to Gwen and the others lately.:D

I have not updated my ficlet because I am in the process of completely rebuilding it. Most, if not all, of what I have written so far is no longer true. However, since this arc takes place quite far into the future, you probably wont know what happened to my group until much later...though one thing is for sure, they are no longer in Mid-Childa. ;)

Aww...:(

Well, to tell the truth, I'm really not doing too well in continuing RevivalS...:(
This old-era HAXX-fest isn't sounding too appealing now... I just want to stay as close to canon as fanon can get.:(
I'm actually thinking of scrapping more power-up developments for Aurion and just let him stay as he is. Maybe I'll just hand over a changed Tyrfing to Grandis later as a replacement if I destroy Gottes Racher in the arc I'm planning...:(

:heh::heh::uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Well, there's still the matter of water making the clothes slightly translucent...

*Runs*

Judging by the fabric, I don't think it'll work.:p

Because its very much hinted at that Signum is Agito's original lord.

Oh...:nod:

Like I said, crack cloud. :heh: I'm not even sure this will get through. :eyespin:

Won't Rein just do?:heh:

Yet one more shaft. :upset:

Meh, I don't mind that much. She's still more magically powerful than pretty much everyone in the cast. And having Reinforce-level power all the time is unreasonably HAXX.:heh: But then, the great SHAFT in StrikerS...:sad::sad::sad:

Hayate: Aaron-kun...:upset::upset::upset: <sniffles>
Me: <sigh> I know, I know...:(:(:( <strokes her head comfortingly>

See the issue here is that freezing people tends to be you know fatal what with them needing to breath and all.
That was what I thought? :confused:

Well, at least leave the head out... or maybe just hold the limbs in place...:heh:

More like the "Stupid Hayate" card. :p

Since being soft in the battle field is not a smart choice...:heh:

You can befriend them after they're dead or laying on the ground bleeding. :p

Nanoha-style X 10.:D

Other then the fact that in reality freezing a human in a block of ice would probably kill them via horrible freezing suffocation?:eyebrow: "Softie Hayate" my foot. :p

:heh::heh::heh:

Yeah we don't want to just make him an inverse male Hayate clone.

I'm doing more balancing now.:nod:

It might knock off her hat too. :p

And that balmoral looks expensive...:p

Thanks for saving me some effort. :p

No problem.:D

Nah, that's Tesla's department.

Tesla-nee?:twitch::twitch::twitch:


Yeah that works and provides more opportunity for friction between him and Lindy, but on the flip side if you think about Lindy’s husband is dead and O’Neil is long divorced and both of them are way older then most of the cast or OCs...

I know... it's appealing...

*grasping my hands who's cracking to dish stuff that is not well-thought-out through Night's regulations of control*

More to watch out for.:p

Yes, it's a dream, because Yuuno is not in SS04's cast list. >_<

Heh.:p Nice try. But that still not up to my taste.:p Majorly because of my preference of cute/MOE over elegant or seductive.:p

But most importantly...

One of the most important factors in making a Hayate pic good for me is how well you can emulate her face from official works.:) That's her primary charming point for me.:) Her body is rather secondary since the artwork in StrikerS tend to shift her figure from being appropriately shapely (:nod:) to looking like that of a tall kid. -_-;

If I were to pick a good (for me) Hayate fanservice pic,

http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/7426/hayate1ph2.jpg

Here's an example.:D

Her pose and outfit is already provocative without being too explicit. Her body proportions are excellently accurate to what I'd imagine at her age. AND she retains the daintily charming aura with her expression. Thus, a most attractive blend of the Hayate fanservice that I like.:love::love::love::D

Was that OOC of me?:p

Well those scenes should only involve a special person then. :D

Those that I plan when she's captured by Grandis are more borderline-steamy than outright hawt.:eyebrow: I think I'll be using the helpless but still headstrong angle.

BTW, he's gonna have an intense fight with Signum and Agito in Unison beforehand.:D

Reiji: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Lindy musn't be paired with the crazy gray-haired man!! She is our pure and unstained MILF Goddess!!!

There's really no pairing that would work for me in canon - N x F seems too contrived, Nanoha X Yuuno might have a chance, but Yunno is such a "meh" character that it'd be sort of a waste to pair Nanoha with her, Nanoha X Chrono is the same thing, and that's pretty much it.

The WR are computer programs - how would that work?

There's just no pairing I could possibly see for Hayate that could work right now.

Not exactly at the same time, but close enough; Naomi turns off the tsundere when it's time to be GAR and turns on the tsundere once the time for GAR has passed.

...I take back what I wrote earlier. Franz and Naomi are gonna be the death of Glen.

I always thought that the defenses were pretty much standardised among Devices and such, really, though binds could be more individualistic (such as Chrono's Struggle Bind or Franz's taser rendition of Lightning Bind).

Protection and its variants seem like the standard auto-guard spell. As for binds, I'm sure they vary from person to person.


Kagerou's actually from Georgia. ^^;; He lives there, but keeps some weird hours.

I'm Korean, damnit, Korean!

I read tokyo underground before but i was thinking of something else when I mention pulling water molecules out. For that lightning protection thing, pure water isn't a good conductor of electricity if I remember my chemistry and the manga correctly.

As for suggestions, I think with her water elemental control, she should be able to affect the weather.

Indeed, that's the idea, pure water. ;)

As for pulling water molecules out, I guess the water user would try to dehydrate his victims, lowering their stamina...or something. :heh: Not exactly sure how that would work.

And yup, there are other things that can be done with water control aside from launching it towards the victims. :heh:

Hmm... Rossetta. Any plans to bring Azmaria in as a Lyrical Magic practictioner and Chrno to keep Xealot company? :heehee:

Very nice suggestion there. :D

Where do you find these guys...

Actually, its the same guy from the same series. I'm just remembering in small bursts what he did in that anime... :heh:

Thanks. :D Though mediafire is being weird right now... Will have to try it again later.

And as always, Nighty has teh goodz.

She's also oddly attractive. :heh:

Got any pics? :D

...:uhoh:

Yup. Thanks!!! :D

NP. ;)

She's mostly referred to as White Ren, don't see another name for her.

But you planning to make her....schizophrenic? Split personalities? :twitch:

lol Its still just a weird idea still... but I guess she'd be like Fei/Id... :uhoh:

Yeah but if I read LoweGear's Lyrical Magic concept right, it isn't intended for offensive spells, but some Fonic artes and hymns ARE offensive in nature.

Another idea could be using a resonance system for spells, making them more powerful or the opposite by altering the spells' frequencies...

A Lyrical mage would fight similarly to a Bard in MMOs, where his Lyrical Magic increases the power of his allies' spells, or dampen the power of that of his enemies. Maybe I would say that whatever Lyrical spell the mage is casting affects the entire field, making either of the above true for both parties. However, we can also say that race and language comes into play here--a Mid-Childan Lyrical mage would only power up those who understand his tunes (or in technical terms, those who use his same magic frequency or magic language/code) and so his spells will only affect Mid-Childan mages. Same holds true for Belkan Lyrical Magic, or other magic systems. And of course, there are other Lyrical spells that increase or decrease defense, magic defense, accuracy, etc. (I love being a Bard in MMOs BTW. :p)

And then comes the Fonic Artes... They could be used by Fon Masters to power up their own spells... In other words, a Fon Master could be a combination of a regular mage and a Lyrical mage, but obviously with neither of its parts as good as either individually.

Ehm, just a tiny mindburst there. :heh: But damn, I so want to create a Lyrical Mage now... :D

Yeah that's true. If that's the case then its probably true that a 100% lightning spell would require incantations of arias, while a partial one can rely on the mages natural ability to convert mana into that element.

A possible theory is that a lightning bolt of that kind of scale can't possibly be created by a mage, or at least it might probably need SSS rank or something. Though I'm stretching it a bit again. :heh:

:nod: Or maybe have a device specialized in casting pure Lightning, similar to how Chrono's device can cast Eternal Coffin, which apparently is composed of pure Ice elemental...

Belka? Earth? Al Hazred? :twitch:
*goes crazy from crack*
Trying to organize a gathering is making me go nuts. :eyespin:

Al Hazerd?! :uhoh:

And you're organizing a gathering now?

So where's the other Chrono? :heh: Or was it spelt Chrno? :confused:

Yeah it was spelled Chrno. :heh:

Ding ding! LoweGear has mastered skill, "Cliff hanger maker".:heh:

lol

Err... Let's not go there...:uhoh:

Truth.

...Because I'd rather have a hawt chick like Sharazad grab me with her own hands instead...

Giving Tyrfing to Grandis sounds like a good idea to me. :D

As for my rebuild, I think I have a better idea of how to introduce my character properly this time. I also have a better story and background, I think. :p And a lot of crazy power ups I had have been scrapped as well. :heh:

Meh, I don't mind that much. She's still more magically powerful than pretty much everyone in the cast. And having Reinforce-level power all the time is unreasonably HAXX.:heh: But then, the great SHAFT in StrikerS...:sad::sad::sad:

One of the most important factors in making a Hayate pic good for me is how well you can emulate her face from official works.:) That's her primary charming point for me.:) Her body is rather secondary since the artwork in StrikerS tend to shift her figure from being appropriately shapely (:nod:) to looking like that of a tall kid. -_-;

That depends on how much you could get out of the body. Essentially, since water is 70% of the body, that kind of thing *might* just be a bit too broken, seeing as you could easily pull out a large quantity of blood, other bodily fluids, etc.

It would be like Magneto pulling out all the metal in a person's body, except a LOT worse.

Well, that assumes that there is NO limit on how much water you could extract from the body. If yes, then it's a ridiculously broken insta-kill move. If no, then it's just a viable tactic depending on how much the limit is.

Tackling half a backlog first, too much on my hand currently. >.>

If its only pure water element, then you're out of luck. The only think I can think of is surrounding a person's head in water to drown them, using pure water to defend against lightning attacks and one rather evil attack.

If its liquid manipulation control, then I can think of a few other tricks.

Hayate doesn't have a lightning attack, does she?

Anyway, drowning is possible. She just need to make the atmosphere extremely dense with water molecules that it's difficult to breathe. That's what she does to make people go to "sleep" anyway. But, it's not going to be effective against flyers. >.>

Puuh, done!

AAS girly coming up!
So who ever is interested, here's Rinyas profile!


Thanks goes to PhoenixFlare for helping me with the gramma! :bow:




Name: Rinya Shuri A’Kalash
Alias: Rin
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Date of birth: March 8, MC 056
Family: Bedario Shuri A’Kalash (father), Lilira Shuri A’Kalash (mother), Rikko Shuri A’Kalash (brother)
Hair Colour: Light blue
Eye Colour: Orange

Affiliation: Time-Space Administration Bureau / Air Armament service / “Dragonfly” Squadron
Position: 2nd Lieutenant / Dragonfly 01
Wizard Ranking: AA
Magic System: Neo-Belka
Magic Colour: Green
Device: Windlanze (Armed / Spear)


Background:

Birth & Childhood:
Rinya was born on Vedir into the Shuri family of the A’Kalash tribe.
Vedir was a world covered with wide windy canyons; most of them so deep that the sunlight never reaches the bottom, thus making the Vedirians live on top of the many plateaus. It was through this planet surface that the Vedirian tribes developed a unique culture where aviation is the main way of movement and transport. So Rinya was born with the blood of aviators.

Ever since she could remember, she had always dreamt of flying. Her father, the owner and pilot of a small air-cargo freight business, trained her in flying cargo gliders so that she could later work with him and carry on the family business some day.

At the age of ten, she went to a TSAB flight show with her family. The first moment she saw the aerial mages, she knew that she wanted to fly like them in the sky, without a glider or plane.
Her father didn’t like her sudden decision and ordered her to stop the stupid thinking at once. Rinya of course, did not.

Since then, the tension within the family never vanished and at the age of twelve she left her home and joined the TSAB.

In service:
Influenced by the traditions of her home world, which reached back to ancient Belka, she chose the Belkan style of magic, even if it wasn't the best choice for someone who wanted to become an aerial mage. But, with passion and hardwork, she succeeded to enter aerial training.

While she was normally good at teamwork, the somewhat reckless nature of her attacks made it difficult for her to adapt to the ways the aerial mages fought, and she nearly dropped out of aerial training. To her luck, an instructor saw the potential of her being more of a melee attacker than a ranged combat mage. Rinya was given an instructor that taught her the fighting style of a Belka Ritter, and, considering the history of her homeworld, she was given her own Device that was created after a traditional Vedirian aerial melee weapon.

Thanks to this, Rinya was able to graduate from the training school as one of the top ranking students, as an A-ranked aerial mage.

Dragonfly:
After graduation, Rinya was assigned to the Air Armaments Service Squadron "Dragonfly", an experienced battle squadron that handled patrol and rescue missions.

Rinya's first big mission was when Dragonfly helped other units in the search for a Class-1 criminal that was detected in Central Midchilda.

Dragonfly found the fugitive, but, Rinya, who was the most inexperienced, was the first to be wounded in battle and was ordered to retreat at once. She later discovered that Dragonfly was totally wiped out.
Rinya wanted to return to battle immediately, but, for her condition, was ordered to stay behind. While she was being treated at the first-aid station, the criminal was captured.

Road to Officer:
As the only survivor of Dragonfly, Rinya was sent on leave and she visited her family on Vedir, but the still-existing tension between her and her father made her return to Midchilda quickly.
Back in service, she supported other aerial squadrons on different missions.

It was the JS incident that brought her to the attention of her superiors.
During the battle against the Saint's Cradle, Rinya was flying around the battlefield, supporting other units and engaging Drones in direct combat.
Through her bravery and quick-thinking on the field, she was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and was sent to an Officer's course, her official rank now determined as AA.

Personality:
Rinya is a bright and energetic person that some people would even call her reckless.
She can be very proud and stubborn sometimes, but this is only to hide her true feelings when she is insecure.
Rinya loves flying and is very glad she joined TSAB because of it. She still thinks very fondly of her old home, even though she is not on good terms with her father.
She also tries to see the good in people first.

Windlanze
Windlanze (Wind Lance) is a device crafted after a Vedirian wind-rider's lance.
In ancient Belka, these traditional weapons were used by Vedirian knights in aerial battles and air jousting.
Swung in fast flight, the lance could deal massive damage on impact to its target.
Windlanze is additionally equipped with a second form and a Belkan cartridge system.

Modes:
Klingenform (Blade Form):
Windlanze’s standard form is a short spear with a long blade.

Zwillingsklingenform (Twin Blade Form):
A second blade appears on the other side of the now-shortened hilt. This form is used when battling more opponents at once.



Defensive Spells:

Knight Armour:
Rinyas Knight Armour is a green and white bodysuit. Armour parts cover the upper torso, shoulders, forearms, knees and feet. The Knight Armour is designed to prefer mobility over protection.

Sturmschild (Storm Shield):
Shield spell in form of a triangle.

Windtanz (Wind Dance)
A spell that increases the casters speed and allows almost instantaneous movement.

Offensive Spells:

Luftmesser (Air Knife):
A spell that is using magic to compress and accelerate the air around the device. It enables the caster to create blades of wind and throw them at the target.

Windschnitter (Wind Reaper):
A more powerful version of Luftmesser.
This spell needs a cartridge to be activated.

Sturmangriff (Assault):
A spell that uses Windtanz as base.
Magical energy is infused into the blade of the device enhancing its ability to penetrate shields and armour. The caster is then boosted forward, allowing him a single strike with the enhanced blade.
This spell needs two cartridges to be activated.

Very good! :D

The profile's nice as it is, and the images even more so! :D

*thumbs up*

The truth hurts she'd probably have a better chance of taking Hayate with her fists IMO. :p

Actually, her fists are deadlier than her techniques. It's just that she refrains from using them because of their doctrines.

*read Mana Disruption*

We need to get this girl some killing intent... :mad:

That would be quite OOC, unless she somehow returns to Reinforce I. :p


*Pauses from pummeling unprotected infantry with 105mm howitzer and Looks at PF funny for a few seconds* :eyebrow:

There's no such thing as overkill.

H-Holy killing intent ... :uhoh:

Just killing the person controlling it would be quicker and easy since she'd be focused on controlling the water.

Sharazad: Haha I'm sending a tidal wave toward that orphanage now what will you do! :mad:
Hayate: Well since you're using all your power to direct said wave and have none to spare for defense I was thinking this. *magic circles appeared all around her*
Sharazad: Oh shi--
*Hræsvelgr >>>>>>>>>>'s Sharazad and the wave dies away*
:p

Oh, Sharazad won't be that absurd and cast the spell off just on the spur of the moment. Flying around, channeling Elements, etc., and then start the ball rolling.

No listen well, you're weak and useless why don't you just give up now and save yourself some pain you glorified super soaker. :p

*Sharazad goes to another corner for deep contemplation and sobs*

:uhoh:

Then we're back to it be being easy to deflect since all the water can't hit at once and a continous blast of a fairly vicious liquid is just not going to do serious damage to a freaking energy sheild that could likely shrug off bomb blasts. :p Seriously I'm sorry, but trying to kill someone with water beams and crap is just making me giggle I can't take seriously.

I think Sharazad's going to show something about this first in Chapter Five. Nothing like a tidal wave, but still strong enough. :p

Then she should just start chucking rocks she'd probably do more damage. :p

Sharazad would much prefer to cause a tectonic slide underneath an ocean over flying unorthodox masses of crude dirt! :mad:

:joke:

Rocks can be used, she'll just cause a mountainous landslide. :)

What? I'm confused here. Who's attack ranks at B+?

Kratos, defense specialist, maximum offense power at B+.

Are you nuts? Who would wanna subject Rein to the agony of being a nun in a mountain full of senile of men? :uhoh:

Monks aren't senile! :frustrated:

They're enlightening! Or on the way to it. :p

Well... She could like freeze Sharazad with the ice-capture spell shown in the manga...:heh:

Uh, specific target Ice Prison? :uhoh:

How about adding more elements to be used in your plans?:heh:

So far, we have light, fire, water, earth, wind, electricity, ... what else is convertible? :heh:

PF is then going to use the 'Softie Hayate' card...:uhoh:

Can't help it, she is that way. :uhoh:

Lol... next thing we'll know that PF has underestimated his word count again and he'll dump a 10k+ short on us...:heh: Not that I mind.

Somewhere around 8K now, and I'm actually looking to reduce the word count (hence character count) so that I can fit the Chapter into one post. >.> Looks like it's double-posting again.

Anyway, I'm on hold with your Chapters, don't have time to read it yet. Sorry about it. >.>

Damn, I wasnt able to do much reading this weekend.


BTW, Phoenix, I know how to make Sharazad's water controlling abilities lethal... :uhoh:

If she can manipulate water at will, you could make it so that she could manipulate the water molecules inside human bodies...:uhoh::uhoh:... she would be unstoppable...:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Disclaimer: This was done in a very old anime, Tokyo Underground. Not my idea. :p

Control at will, yes, but she cannot affect them at will. Once she completes her spell, she can control it with very good precision, but the ones that weren't affected cannot be "targeted" just like that. It'll be so HAXX. :p That being said, once she touches you ...

It may be super H4XX, but its still a usable idea. Maybe Sharazad can only pull water molecules out of a person very slowly, at point blank range , using a great deal of power, causing a lot of pain to the victim. If left too long on the victim
then the spell starts getting lethal.

Out of curiosity, what happens if the opposite happens? Instead of water being pull out, this time water is being forced in? Does it actually do anything, besides forcing the victim to need to pee a lot?

Forcing water into a target is difficult. It's not like water goes in easily through skin or any such barriers, orifices such as mouth, ears, and well, the part at the bottom, would be much better. Well, magic could probably do that, but Sharazad's not a complete mage per se.

In any case, if you manage to force water in, the target will probably start to bloat. Water, being less viscous than oil, reaches the inner parts of the body easily enough and it's absorbed through the cells via osmosis. Excess water is gathered at the bladder and released as urine. Still, we need to consider that the kidneys can handle only a particular volume of water at any one time, so you would probably cause kidneys to malfunction (vessels bursting, etc.). That, and with enough water, the cells will start to burst as well due to hypotonicity. Some other things can happen as well, but we'll do for now. Cells dying are not good signs of health.

Oh oh, Phoenix, here is another one, courtesy of the same guy :heh:: He controls a rather small mass of water to completely surround his victims...to drown them in mid air... :uhoh::uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

:heh:

Maybe I'll just shup up now. :p :heh:

Heh, that was discussed before, but it's all right. Thanks, anyway. :p

I read tokyo underground before but i was thinking of something else when I mention pulling water molecules out. For that lightning protection thing, pure water isn't a good conductor of electricity if I remember my chemistry and the manga correctly.

As for suggestions, I think with her water elemental control, she should be able to affect the weather.

Yes, pure water isn't a good conductor because of the lack of soluble ions.

And, yes again, Sharazad can control weather. :heh:

No, silly. You would have been in serious trouble if your temperature ever hit 40 degrees Celsius. And I meant BIG trouble, as in you might fry your brains or something.

If it hits 40 degrees, then it's probably good to start having faith. Body temperature rising above the normal condition is already bad enough, and at 40, most enzymes start to denature (i.e. becomes dysfunctional). If prolonged, well, you know what I mean.

no, Chrono x Fate is a superior pairing, because it's like incest except it's not


*Smack Melodius on the head*

They're a superior pairing because they look damn good together :mad: And because Chrono is Chrono and Fate is Fate.

(Could you imagine what leet name their kids could have?)

But stupid writers will be stupid writers, so the Canon pairing I'll support is Clyde and Lindy.

USO DA!

No, seriously, even if they're not blood related, that might raise a few eyebrows. Not that I got a problem with that, but still...does not compute. :uhoh:

USO JANEI!

(Damn, my CxF blood is burning again...)

In all seriousness as well, taking into account that this is Anime, that kind of relationship isn't unheard of.

(The rare Siscon Level 3)

And I'm more than willing to bet that Lindy wouldn't really mind, Fate would still be her daughter one way or the other.


Aces, in this one's humble opinion, need to stay single in canon for now.

As if you need to tell the writers that :rolleyes:


There's just no pairing I could possibly see for Hayate that could work right now.

*REALLY wants to say something*


I'm Korean, damnit, Korean!


Well that explains... Nothing :heh:



I see...well, I never saw Bleach...:heh:


Oh yeah, now that I think about it, that is also the first time I've registered the name 'Yui' in my head :heh:

Sure there was Evangelion long before Bleach, but it's not like she left much of an impression...

She did leave however, one of the top male characters that you'll find in hell when they die.

And that might totally kill all the drama and stuff, since they're both unstoppable if they work together....

:heh: Although whats the bet that the writers believe that 1v1 are cooler.. :p

Not exactly at the same time, but close enough; Naomi turns off the tsundere when it's time to be GAR and turns on the tsundere once the time for GAR has passed. I see... Still not computing but nevermind...:heh:
Kagerou's actually from Georgia. ^^;; He lives there, but keeps some weird hours.
I see.... yep, definetly some werid hours[/QUOTE]
Actually, Ivanovich and a couple of other Bravo Squad guys can fly, but nothing like on the level of Nanoha and Fate. When your squad is somewhat skewed to sniping, flight is very convinient for getting to sniping spots.[/QUOTE]
Hmm, still going to be a tough battle none the less the first time around.

Like I said, Ivanovich and a couple of Bravo Squad guys know how to fly, but there is no way for them to win on Nanoha's terms, and Franz, for all his hot blood, knows that. It's an urban warfare senario, and what they do is they use ambush tactics and stay low and inside buildings, forcing Nanoha to go low... though then they have to contend with the Forwards in CQB...

You'd also have to hope that Nanoha is following a friendly set of ROE during the battle, else she's just going to level the builidings......:uhoh:

So now we're going to work on Lindy/O'Neill now? :uhoh:

If it can be made to work.... I don't see anything wrong....

:heh: I'm just surprised since this is just out there in terms of pairings... Coming from TK none the less...

Yep. I actually thought about having the OFM do orbital drops, since they use ODST armor as their barrier jackets, but Kagerou talked me outta it...

:D put it in!! :D DOn't worry about what he's saying :p

"Mariel-san, you handle the reinforcements of his mechanical frames. Anesthetic officer, handle the drip at 16... no, 10, and adjust according the the mechanical adjustment rates. Stabilize the adrelanine flows, and do not let overcharge of electricity bypass... This is the sensitive part..."

Following reformation of large safenus vena, to prepare for grafting on the coronary arteries, and adjust the heart-lung machine at on-off, per the surgeon's movement...

This was something extremely impossible. A tri-linked surgery on the mechanical aspects, magical and physical... A surgeon, mage-doctor and engineer together in the operating theater... It had broken all regulations of official medicine, especially since... a nurse, Astra was assigned to handle the grafting, a nurse... a nurse... holding a knife. In the worst case scenario, his license as a nurse would be permanently revoked.

But human life was at stake. The medical team faced the possibilities of trial... But this team is one... one to save life. That is why...

Astra said it. The forbidden word.

"Beaver knife."

Beaver Knife???

What's Astra doing there:confused::confused:

Quite nice. There are parts where it didn't feel so smooth in transition, but narratives so forgivable.

:eek:

I got a comment from nightengale :bow:
So it was mostly the narratives that had problems. Could you point out some of the areas?

I know... it's appealing...

*grasping my hands who's cracking to dish stuff that is not well-thought-out through Night's regulations of control*

Well its your story, so I can't really complain. :heh:

:nod:
I'd appreciate it, but there's no need to follow what I want... It's supposed to be fun for everyone :D

Familiars actually take a portion of the mage's mana pool, though in exchange the mage gets a combat partner that can be trained to complement their tactics and skills.
:nod:
Case in point, Isamu(pure close combat) and Iza(hybrid familiar with both ranged and close combat), from my OC pool.

I first heard the name Yui when I saw one of Bleach's EDs. :heh:

:D Her music is quite good!

Which actually surprised even me. I expected more Americans seeing as this is an American board, but I guess not many Americans are into OC stuffs for nanohaverse.

:heh: Just goes to show the increasingly global world that we live in.

I don't think Fate has problems with teamwork, seeing that she was paired with her familiar Arf for years.

Sure, she'd be familiar with teamwork. Although with the other's? Probably not to the extent that the Weavers are with each other. Team v Individuals.

Nope, because she already has one from Aaron...

You know you want to :D A for Arcas to approve 100% of her suitor if he comes from you :p

:heh: You're not going to be able to run very far in that :p
Of course it isn't HAXX!:p you did quite well!:D

:D

Well, to tell the truth, I'm really not doing too well in continuing RevivalS...:(
This old-era HAXX-fest isn't sounding too appealing now... I just want to stay as close to canon as fanon can get.:(
I'm actually thinking of scrapping more power-up developments for Aurion and just let him stay as he is. Maybe I'll just hand over a changed Tyrfing to Grandis later as a replacement if I destroy Gottes Racher in the arc I'm planning...:(

It's still a pretty cool scenario though... Although it was a bit on the zomg haxx side...

Meh, I don't mind that much. She's still more magically powerful than pretty much everyone in the cast. And having Reinforce-level power all the time is unreasonably HAXX.:heh: But then, the great SHAFT in StrikerS...:sad::sad::sad:

Hayate: Aaron-kun...:upset::upset::upset: <sniffles>
Me: <sigh> I know, I know...:(:(:( <strokes her head comfortingly>

:eek:

Aaron!!! What are you doing to HAYATE!! :frustrated:

One of the most important factors in making a Hayate pic good for me is how well you can emulate her face from official works.:) That's her primary charming point for me.:) Her body is rather secondary since the artwork in StrikerS tend to shift her figure from being appropriately shapely (:nod:) to looking like that of a tall kid. -_-;

If I were to pick a good (for me) Hayate fanservice pic,

http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/7426/hayate1ph2.jpg

Here's an example.:D

Her pose and outfit is already provocative without being too explicit. Her body proportions are excellently accurate to what I'd imagine at her age. AND she retains the daintily charming aura with her expression. Thus, a most attractive blend of the Hayate fanservice that I like.:love::love::love::D

Was that OOC of me?:p

:nod: As long as it isn't above 50k characters, it should be fine. Although you'd have to stop around 48-49k charcters so you could write a little for spoiler's tags and such...

WHY IS HAYATE'S PORTRAIT IN THE FAVOURITE CHARACTER THREAD NOT SHOWING?!?!?:frustrated: WHAT IS THIS HORRIBLE SHAFT TREATMENT THAT EVEN PLAGUES THE FORUMS?!?! :frustrated: :frustrated: :frustrated:



Hmm...a bit too late for that. I think Kha already nabbed Fate :uhoh:

And I nabbed Hayate...:nod:

Yosh, now with this out of the way, time to finally read some older pieces. :p

What about my works?:(

Hmm, I think I know what you mean. Aurion is such a good character right now, and he doesnt even fight whenever he appears on fics or else. ;)

Yeah. And I seriously don't want him to get more powerful anymore. Pretty much as it is, I'll use the GuardianS transition of events and just give him the prototype H.A.V.A. Type X-555 Heavy Assault device. Nowhere near as HAXX as the original design for Tyrfing. I'll call that device 'Orphenoch'.:D

Giving Tyrfing to Grandis sounds like a good idea to me. :D

I'll eliminate the gun mode and the Fusion core and just add some functions for improved mana conversion.:nod: And maybe a full drive if I can do it.:) For the currrent plans, his first device before being a protagionist, Gottes Racher is just a longsword with no other froms than it's Full Drive, which is still just a sword.

Dont listen to this, people. I'm sure he liked the pic. :p

*runs from Aaron*

<Aaron's OREWODAREDATTOOMOTTEYAGARU KIIICCKKUUU!!!!!>>>>>> Erio>

Hayate doesn't have a lightning attack, does she?

Photon Lancer: Genocide Shift and Annihilation Lightning.:)

Anyway, drowning is possible. She just need to make the atmosphere extremely dense with water molecules that it's difficult to breathe. That's what she does to make people go to "sleep" anyway. But, it's not going to be effective against flyers. >.>

Plus, as shown in StrikerS episode 16, they can configure their Barrier Jackets to isolate cetain particles from entering their breathing space.:p

Actually, her fists are deadlier than her techniques. It's just that she refrains from using them because of their doctrines.

*read Mana Disruption*

Yup. Insta-Internal Magic Flow Nullification .:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

And once again, I find Aurion to be capable of countering this just like how he can counter Serge's manipulation ability...:heh::heh::heh:

*Sharazad goes to another corner for deep contemplation and sobs*

:uhoh:

Ouch...:uhoh:

Sharazad would much prefer to cause a tectonic slide underneath an ocean over flying unorthodox masses of crude dirt! :mad:

:joke:

Rocks can be used, she'll just cause a mountainous landslide. :)

:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Uh, specific target Ice Prison? :uhoh:

Yep. The ice just forms around you.:nod:
Just like what Rein did to the drones in the manga.:nod:

Can't help it, she is that way. :uhoh:

If only she had more of Nanoha's 'friendship thru superior firepower' mentality...
-_-

Control at will, yes, but she cannot affect them at will. Once she completes her spell, she can control it with very good precision, but the ones that weren't affected cannot be "targeted" just like that. It'll be so HAXX. :p That being said, once she touches you ...

Do NOT go there!:mad:

It's still a pretty cool scenario though... Although it was a bit on the zomg haxx side...

This old-era HAXX-fest isn't sounding too appealing now... I just want to stay as close to canon as fanon can get.:(
I'm actually thinking of scrapping more power-up developments for Aurion and just let him stay as he is. Maybe I'll just hand over a changed Tyrfing to Grandis later as a replacement if I destroy Gottes Racher in the arc I'm planning...:(

*Lurks in the background in a Gendo pose.* "The Scenario is proceeding as predicted..."

Judging by the fabric, I don't think it'll work.:p
Yep most likely it just looks a few shades darker.


Won't Rein just do?:heh:No need more Chibis! :frustrated::p


Meh, I don't mind that much. She's still more magically powerful than pretty much everyone in the cast. And having Reinforce-level power all the time is unreasonably HAXX.:heh: But then, the great SHAFT in StrikerS...:sad::sad::sad:

Well, at least leave the head out... or maybe just hold the limbs in place...:heh:

One of the most important factors in making a Hayate pic good for me is how well you can emulate her face from official works.:) That's her primary charming point for me.:) Her body is rather secondary since the artwork in StrikerS tend to shift her figure from being appropriately shapely (:nod:) to looking like that of a tall kid. -_-;

If I were to pick a good (for me) Hayate fanservice pic,

http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/7426/hayate1ph2.jpg

Here's an example.:D

Her pose and outfit is already provocative without being too explicit. Her body proportions are excellently accurate to what I'd imagine at her age. AND she retains the daintily charming aura with her expression. Thus, a most attractive blend of the Hayate fanservice that I like.:love::love::love::D

Was that OOC of me?:pNot really since I've been rather sure you've been obsessed with and wanted herfrom the start, this sort of creepy breakdown of what you find attractive about her has merely reinforced that. :p


Those that I plan when she's captured by Grandis are more borderline-steamy than outright hawt.:eyebrow: I think I'll be using the helpless but still headstrong angle.The captured princess angle then eh? :p

BTW, he's gonna have an intense fight with Signum and Agito in Unison beforehand.:D
Stand by for: INTENSE SWORD FIGHTING ACTION!:mad::p

Oh, no. Please. Send me one...

<begins plotting for Arcas to disrupt the wedding a la Shrek.>You should know you can't fight true love Reiji he's doomed to fail. :p



Hayate doesn't have a lightning attack, does she?

Anyway, drowning is possible. She just need to make the atmosphere extremely dense with water molecules that it's difficult to breathe. That's what she does to make people go to "sleep" anyway. But, it's not going to be effective against flyers. >.> Umm you know the air has a saturation point where any more water you add will just fall out of it right? That's why we can have "100%" humidity the air is literately fully loaded with water anymore added will simply condense and fall to the ground as dew so this is pretty much impossible. This is dependent on temperature, but no temperature that a human could acutally survive would have a dew point high enough to allow you to drown in water vapor.


Actually, her fists are deadlier than her techniques. It's just that she refrains from using them because of their doctrines.

*read Mana Disruption*Templars are stupid too apparently. :p

That would be quite OOC, unless she somehow returns to Reinforce I. :p
Bah she needs to spend some time with the SAS then...

R5lT7kdx9gk
They'll toughen her up. :mad:

H-Holy killing intent ... :uhoh:that intent is real for me at least, you can't chose my career path and not ask yourself if you could really kill other people and I can safely say that yes I can and might well have too.


Oh, Sharazad won't be that absurd and cast the spell off just on the spur of the moment. Flying around, channeling Elements, etc., and then start the ball rolling.
She'd still certainly need to focus heavily to cast such a thing leaving her wide open for a brutal pummeling.


*Sharazad goes to another corner for deep contemplation and sobs*

:uhoh:
given that I just pummeled another one of her "powers" above she has good reason too. :p


I think Sharazad's going to show something about this first in Chapter Five. Nothing like a tidal wave, but still strong enough. :pYour a good writer, but I'm having trouble seeing this fight being anything other then giggle and eye roll inducing at the moment. =/


[quote]
Rocks can be used, she'll just cause a mountainous landslide. :)That would tend to involve having a mountain and an enemy willing to stand on it while you cause said rock slide... Plus this isn't all that impressive Hayate could just blast the side of the mountain and cause the same thing, this is like having a power to "cause avalanches" well whoopie-de-frikkin-do so dose any dude with as tick of TNT! :rolleyes::p

Can't help it, she is that way.:uhoh: People can change, she should. :p


Forcing water into a target is difficult. It's not like water goes in easily through skin or any such barriers, orifices such as mouth, ears, and well, the part at the bottom, would be much better. Well, magic could probably do that, but Sharazad's not a complete mage per se.

In any case, if you manage to force water in, the target will probably start to bloat. Water, being less viscous than oil, reaches the inner parts of the body easily enough and it's absorbed through the cells via osmosis. Excess water is gathered at the bladder and released as urine. Still, we need to consider that the kidneys can handle only a particular volume of water at any one time, so you would probably cause kidneys to malfunction (vessels bursting, etc.). That, and with enough water, the cells will start to burst as well due to hypotonicity. Some other things can happen as well, but we'll do for now. Cells dying are not good signs of health.
I'd also ask why if you can do this you wouldn't use something more dangerous like lethal chemicals or corrosive agents they'd do allot more damage allot faster then water would.

Yes, pure water isn't a good conductor because of the lack of soluble ions.

And, yes again, Sharazad can control weather. :heh:
Isn't a good one, but it still conducts all the same so firing a water jet at someone with lightning powers would still be a very bad idea. :uhoh::p


:heh: Although whats the bet that the writers believe that 1v1 are cooler.. :pA well done one on one Duels is cool, they're stupid, but they are cool you can't deny that. :p


You'd also have to hope that Nanoha is following a friendly set of ROE during the battle, else she's just going to level the builidings......:uhoh:Acutally only her really heavy spells seem able to do that and she couldn't jsut spam those willy nilly she certainly won't be leveling any buildings with accel shooter or even Divine Buster.

:heh: I'm just surprised since this is just out there in terms of pairings... Coming from TK none the less...Hey I have my crack moments just like anyone else! :(

:heh: Just goes to show the increasingly global world that we live in.
I've said much the same thing before and it's true.


:heh: Go for it! :DAlready going... :uhoh:


:heh: Truth.I'd disagree this is more like an attack helicopter and the problem with those is they tend to have to get close enough for the targets to shot back which complicates matters. I've always consider mages less aircraft and more highly mobile helicopters.


:heh: Still, we don't need people releasing supplies of crack when it's not needed.. :pAnd who's to say how much crack is needed hmmm? :eyebrow::p

:heh:You're not going to be able to run very far in that:p Acutally given that's he's probably referring to this (http://www.hl2world.com/wiki/index.php/HEV_Suit)and it's basiclly power armor he'll do fine.

If it's true love, then yes he is.

But he's banking on the possibility that it's just two older people who're tired of not having someone to *cuddle* with at night.

Either way, please work it into the scenario.

If he's wrong, just have someone blast him thru a wall... that tends to work pretty well.

How hard can it be to make something up? You could always do something like this:
"Jagged elements dancing in the skies, gather to my hand and explode with the ferocity you possess, Maelstorm Superior!"

"I call upon the raging elements, the fury of the storm. Come to me. Surround me and fill me with your power. With the shining gods at your side, surge and strike down all upon this stage amidst Heaven and Earth! Kyu. Ten. Ou. Gen. Rai. Sei. Fu. Ka. Ten. Son!"

Following reformation of large safenus vena, to prepare for grafting on the coronary arteries, and adjust the heart-lung machine at on-off, per the surgeon's movement...

This was something extremely impossible. A tri-linked surgery on the mechanical aspects, magical and physical... A surgeon, mage-doctor and engineer together in the operating theater... It had broken all regulations of official medicine, especially since... a nurse, Astra was assigned to handle the grafting, a nurse... a nurse... holding a knife. In the worst case scenario, his license as a nurse would be permanently revoked.

But human life was at stake. The medical team faced the possibilities of trial... But this team is one... one to save life. That is why...

Astra said it. The forbidden word.

Another idea could be using a resonance system for spells, making them more powerful or the opposite by altering the spells' frequencies...

A Lyrical mage would fight similarly to a Bard in MMOs, where his Lyrical Magic increases the power of his allies' spells, or dampen the power of that of his enemies. Maybe I would say that whatever Lyrical spell the mage is casting affects the entire field, making either of the above true for both parties. However, we can also say that race and language comes into play here--a Mid-Childan Lyrical mage would only power up those who understand his tunes (or in technical terms, those who use his same magic frequency or magic language/code) and so his spells will only affect Mid-Childan mages. Same holds true for Belkan Lyrical Magic, or other magic systems. And of course, there are other Lyrical spells that increase or decrease defense, magic defense, accuracy, etc. (I love being a Bard in MMOs BTW. :p)

And then comes the Fonic Artes... They could be used by Fon Masters to power up their own spells... In other words, a Fon Master could be a combination of a regular mage and a Lyrical mage, but obviously with neither of its parts as good as either individually.

Ehm, just a tiny mindburst there. :heh: But damn, I so want to create a Lyrical Mage now... :D

DON'T MAKE MY PURE-INTENTIONED SYMPATHETIC ACTION LOOK LIKE A FIRST STEP TO TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HER!!!:frustrated::frustrated::frustrated:

Mattaku. -_-; What's wrong with comforting the poor girl (with NOTHING funny planned)?!:mad:
I'm sorry Aaron, but there's no such thing :p

Even if you have no intention (yeah right) , keep this up and SHE will fall for YOU. Which then in turn leads to the Ero-scene, which then in turn solidifies people's belief that it was

JUST AS PLANNED!!!!

If not, and you dump her, which then she would suffer an emotional break down and do something stupid. People would carve an idol of you made of animal waste, and dump you in the same hole as "Shinji the Puss", "Keitaro the Wuss", and "Makoto the Bastard" and "Shinji (F/SN) the Fuc-" ...
Sorry, i'd have to agree with Chaos here... although hopefully the latter doesn't happen and you can't cast into the same league as those dammed souls....:uhoh:

The crack gas seems to have effected me more then I thought a one-shot at the least is in the works... :uhoh:

Better check your equipment then.... Looks like you've got a dud :p

Not really since I've been rather sure you've been obsessed with and wanted herfrom the start, this sort of creepy breakdown of what you find attractive about her has merely reinforced that. :p
:nod:

Stand by for: INTENSE SWORD FIGHTING ACTION!:mad::p
:nod:

A well done one on one Duels is cool, they're stupid, but they are cool you can't deny that. :p

:nod: True, duels are cool, although terribly inefficient... why waste the time when you can have your whole team steamroll over them one by one...

Hey I have my crack moments just like anyone else! :(

Already going... :uhoh:

:nod:
:D

I'd disagree this is more like an attack helicopter and the problem with those is they tend to have to get close enough for the targets to shot back which complicates matters. I've always consider mages less aircraft and more highly mobile helicopters.

Ahh, woops, got blindsided for a moment... yes that's correct. Although it's still going to be extrememly difficult without fliers.

And who's to say how much crack is needed hmmm? :eyebrow::p

Errm, I'll get back to you on thet :p


As expected of our resident Hayate-con.

:nod:

One of my possible ideas. :p

And no, I've not played it. Tell me more.

Wait, there is an English version, right?

In the distant past, a calamitous struggle between light and dark took place on this planet. The clash of the two opposing powers scoured the planet's surface entirely of life, and the two forces fell into a deep sleep...

In the world on the inside of the planet, there exists just one small village of Crysta. Ark a mischievous teenage boy, somehow causes a crisis in the village that makes it necessary for him to leave. His trip to save his fellow villagers eventually becomes a journey across time to resurrect the planet.

What adventures will his epic quest bring? Will he ever complete his journey through the dangers of an unborn world?

It's pretty hard to say. The storm was supercharged by Fate to throw enough energy to force activate the jewel seeds in the ocean and she was around AAA then.
Ahhh but remember because of her weaken state that spell almost knocked her out and it probably did drain quite a lot of her remaining reserves.

And when I said 100% lightning I meant to use a spell that is purely lightning in nature without any incantations, which the more I look at it is probably not very likely.

In Fate's case, her own development far out-striped Arf until the two had quite a power gap. :heh:
A familiar was never meant to be more powerful than the master. Because one, if the master were a cruel person that familiar might rebel, and actually win. Two, the familiar would probably need a lot more mana upkeep from the master, and if the master were actually the weaker one it would be extremely taxing. There are probably other reasons, but this is what I can think of for the moment.

But in any case yeah, I'm fine now... Not a completely recovery yeah though.

(A good learning experience, now I know what it feels like to be worried about death) If you reach anywhere remotely near 39 degrees you would have needed a shot for the fever already, and not hang around hoping it'll get better naturally, because its can be quite dangerous to your health.

Nahh we have you to do the character development part, but not the hawt rabu-rabu and "iiiiiyaaaaaaaaa" moments. :heh:


Judging by the fabric, I don't think it'll work.:p
Who knows? :heh:


Meh, I don't mind that much. She's still more magically powerful than pretty much everyone in the cast. And having Reinforce-level power all the time is unreasonably HAXX.:heh: But then, the great SHAFT in StrikerS...:sad::sad::sad:

Hayate: Aaron-kun...:upset::upset::upset: <sniffles>

Oi oi....stop hogging her all to yourself, Aaron! :frustrated:


Tesla-nee?:twitch::twitch::twitch:
Aneki!! :eyespin: Cracktastic.


Heh.:p Nice try. But that still not up to my taste.:p Majorly because of my preference of cute/MOE over elegant or seductive.:p

But most importantly...

One of the most important factors in making a Hayate pic good for me is how well you can emulate her face from official works.:) That's her primary charming point for me.:) Her body is rather secondary since the artwork in StrikerS tend to shift her figure from being appropriately shapely (:nod:) to looking like that of a tall kid. -_-;

If I were to pick a good (for me) Hayate fanservice pic,

http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/7426/hayate1ph2.jpg

Here's an example.:D

Her pose and outfit is already provocative without being too explicit. Her body proportions are excellently accurate to what I'd imagine at her age. AND she retains the daintily charming aura with her expression. Thus, a most attractive blend of the Hayate fanservice that I like.:love::love::love::D

Was that OOC of me?:p
Oh the Hayate pillow case. Would love to have one. :love::love::love:


Those that I plan when she's captured by Grandis are more borderline-steamy than outright hawt.:eyebrow: I think I'll be using the helpless but still headstrong angle.

BTW, he's gonna have an intense fight with Signum and Agito in Unison beforehand.:D
No, "いやあああああああああああ!!!!" moments? :upset:


Arcas. Hey, Arcas! Look at your Creator-san ogling your imouto in unclean ways.:rolleyes:

lol Its still just a weird idea still... but I guess she'd be like Fei/Id... :uhoh:
:twitch:


Another idea could be using a resonance system for spells, making them more powerful or the opposite by altering the spells' frequencies...

A Lyrical mage would fight similarly to a Bard in MMOs, where his Lyrical Magic increases the power of his allies' spells, or dampen the power of that of his enemies. Maybe I would say that whatever Lyrical spell the mage is casting affects the entire field, making either of the above true for both parties. However, we can also say that race and language comes into play here--a Mid-Childan Lyrical mage would only power up those who understand his tunes (or in technical terms, those who use his same magic frequency or magic language/code) and so his spells will only affect Mid-Childan mages. Same holds true for Belkan Lyrical Magic, or other magic systems. And of course, there are other Lyrical spells that increase or decrease defense, magic defense, accuracy, etc. (I love being a Bard in MMOs BTW. :p)

And then comes the Fonic Artes... They could be used by Fon Masters to power up their own spells... In other words, a Fon Master could be a combination of a regular mage and a Lyrical mage, but obviously with neither of its parts as good as either individually.

Ehm, just a tiny mindburst there. :heh: But damn, I so want to create a Lyrical Mage now... :D
Hmm...now that's an idea. Using Resonance Lyrical magic to boost power levels, they would work like arias. Ideas ideas! :eyespin:


:nod: Or maybe have a device specialized in casting pure Lightning, similar to how Chrono's device can cast Eternal Coffin, which apparently is composed of pure Ice elemental...
That works too. :nod:


Al Hazerd?! :uhoh:

And you're organizing a gathering now?
Yeah some of my friends are coming back from Australia, holidays and all (just like how Kha should be finished with exams and going back to Singapore soon). So I'm just planning a little get together since we don't really meet often (the whole lot of us got to know each other through a gaming server).


Yeah it was spelled Chrno. :heh:
I have to say I was rather disappointed with Chrno Crusade. Somehow it just didn't feel right in many ways. :uhoh:


:nod:
I'd appreciate it, but there's no need to follow what I want... It's supposed to be fun for everyone :D
Well no matter, the ones I have currently under works are all non-Earthlings. Which reminds me I need to stop procrastinating and get some ideas on how to finish their profiles. :uhoh:


:nod:
Case in point, Isamu(pure close combat) and Iza(hybrid familiar with both ranged and close combat), from my OC pool.
:O


:D Her music is quite good!
Her music is good but her voice really isn't. If you heard her sing live you'll know. :heh:


:heh: Just goes to show the increasingly global world that we live in.
:nod:


Sure, she'd be familiar with teamwork. Although with the other's? Probably not to the extent that the Weavers are with each other. Team v Individuals.
Not sure, though I'm sure as a combat instructor Nanoha would have thought team tactics, like how she taught RF6's rookie forwards. It would make sense that she should at least know teamwork herself.


Not quite, I live in Australia :D
I see. :)

Yeah. And I seriously don't want him to get more powerful anymore. Pretty much as it is, I'll use the GuardianS transition of events and just give him the prototype H.A.V.A.

Edit:I also love the use of the word MILF in relation with those unstained and pure… You know what it means right? :eyebrow:

Actually, Lindy does have another lover, though she doesn't acknowledge him.

He's ...

:nod: As long as it isn't above 50k characters, it should be fine. Although you'd have to stop around 48-49k charcters so you could write a little for spoiler's tags and such...

No worries. They're not going anywhere :D

They already pass through the limit. :heh: Guess there's no helping it. :p

I'll have to get back on many stories in the weekends.

Photon Lancer: Genocide Shift and Annihilation Lightning.:)

Ah, that reminds me. :D

I remember the first, but where does the second come from? :confused:

Plus, as shown in StrikerS episode 16, they can configure their Barrier Jackets to isolate cetain particles from entering their breathing space.:p

:nod:

Yup. Insta-Internal Magic Flow Nullification .:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

And once again, I find Aurion to be capable of countering this just like how he can counter Serge's manipulation ability...:heh::heh::heh:

Nothing too impossible. Templars' abilities to disrupt Elements in the body can be severe pain. If they choose to use it, that is. Then again, Barrier Jackets and platings impede them from doing so in the first place.

Yep. The ice just forms around you.:nod:
Just like what Rein did to the drones in the manga.:nod:

Noted.

If only she had more of Nanoha's 'friendship thru superior firepower' mentality...
-_-

Actually, I think Hayate's ability for friendship comes from her kind heart, which is good. It tones down a lot on the "magic damage" part. :p

Umm you know the air has a saturation point where any more water you add will just fall out of it right? That's why we can have "100%" humidity the air is literately fully loaded with water anymore added will simply condense and fall to the ground as dew so this is pretty much impossible. This is dependent on temperature, but no temperature that a human could acutally survive would have a dew point high enough to allow you to drown in water vapor.

:nod:

I guess the phrase "put to sleep" was taken literally. >.>

No, Sharazad doesn't cause drowning by saturating the air with water. What the saturation does is make it more difficult to breathe (by displacing oxygen with water molecules) and raising the humidity of the area until it's stuffy, which cause the victims to suffocate and faint ("sleep" :uhoh:). Of course, she always does this only in confined spaces, such as in offices and laboratories, which is why it's impossible to do it outdoors.

This should be more reasonable, no? :uhoh:

Templars are stupid too apparently. :p

*all four Templars move to one corner and cry*

Bah she needs to spend some time with the SAS then...

R5lT7kdx9gk
They'll toughen her up. :mad:

:heh:

She'd still certainly need to focus heavily to cast such a thing leaving her wide open for a brutal pummeling.

Well, there is this possibility, no doubt. I guess the only thing that will make Hayate not do so will be the plot. :p

Your a good writer, but I'm having trouble seeing this fight being anything other then giggle and eye roll inducing at the moment. =/


We'll have a read on this later. Giggles and eyerolls aside, there is a crack at the very end. :p

People can change, she should. :p

Only that I'm not changing her. :D

I'd also ask why if you can do this you wouldn't use something more dangerous like lethal chemicals or corrosive agents they'd do allot more damage allot faster then water would.

Because of the need for balance. >.>

If she could just control any form of liquid, she might as well dump arsenic/mercury/lead into the water supply, which will surely kill more than normal water does. Or she could just shoot bullets of concentrated acid. :uhoh:

Isn't a good one, but it still conducts all the same so firing a water jet at someone with lightning powers would still be a very bad idea. :uhoh::p

Since electricity is Templar-controllable, that makes a dual-element attack. :p

*senses Dark Gods astride with HAXX-busters*

Well, here's Ivanovich's spell list, finally done:


Compared to other mages, Ivanovich's spell list is quite short, with his biggest spell being roughly equivalent to Divine Buster. As Harvest takes the form of a rifle, almost all of Ivanovich's spells are ranged attacks. Unlike Nanoha, however, he focuses on highly accurate, tightly targeted attacks - very similar to Vice. Unlike Nanoha or Fate, Ivanovich uses 12-cartridge magazines for Harvest, and carries many spare mags with him.

Attack Spells:
Variable Shot: Ivanovich uses the power of two cartridges to form a barrier around a magical bullet, allowing it to penetrate Gadget Drone AMF. Harvest is capable of focusing and forming the barrier and bullet without operator input. (AA-rank, 2 cartridges)

Heatseeker Twins: Ivanovich fires a pair of heatseeking shots that home in on their target. This attack launches magical projectiles with attack power of B, AA speed and A+ homing ability. (AA-rank, 2 cartridges)

Blaze Cannon: Copying one of the standard spells used by Enforcers, Ivanovich uses this fire-based spell in like manner to a flamethrower, producing a jet of fire that shoots out forward. By adjusting the input power, he can control the strength, intensity, and range of the stream. (B to AA-rank; uses no cartridges at B, 1 cartridge at A, 2 at AA. Strength adjustible.)

Barrett Shot: Ivanovich's version of Barrett Shot is almost identical to the standard version in use, except that Harvest fires 3 shots per cartridge instead of 4, giving a slight increase in power to each shot while reducing the volume of fire by 25%. Once Barrett Shot is active, all Ivanovich needs to do is to pull the trigger, until he runs out of cartridges.

Autumn Pillar: Ivanovich's answer to bombardment spells. This spell manages to hit AAA rank using 4 cartridges and fires a concentrated beam at the target. The beam is of comparable power to Divine Buster Extension, but with a smaller "caliber", and concentrates magical energy into penetration power and range. (AAA-rank, 4 cartridges. Similar power to A's Divine Buster Extension, but with more range and lesser kinetic impact.)

Shock Bolter: Modified from Franz's Blitz Bolter, Ivanovich uses this spell in hand to hand combat. It is essentially the same spell, sans lightning element.

Defensive Spells:
Barrier Jacket: Standard OFM Assault Platoon Barrier Jacket, resembling ODST armor.

Protection: Standard Barrier-type spell.

Round Shield: Standard Shield-type spell.

Jacket Purge: Following the principles of Reactive Armor, Ivanovich can detonate the outer layers of his Barrier Jacket as a defence, revealing the battledress fatigues he wears below.

Other Spells:
Flier Fin: Like Nanoha's original Flier Fin, but with less manuverability. If Nanaha's manuverability is that of a RAH-66 Comanche, Ivanovich's manuverability is like a CH-46 Sea Knight.

Chain Bind: As with Yuuno's version.

Flash Move: Speeds up Ivanovich, typically used in dodging or to tackle escaping targets.

Roger that Wildfire the crack writing is currently in progress keep up the fire until it's complete! :mad::p

Stuff like this is why despite all the shit I’ll have to deal with I still want to join the army.
Army Strong, eh? Just curious: Why Army and not Marines?

The crack gas seems to have effected me more then I thought a one-shot at the least is in the works... :uhoh:
Go for it! I'll cover you all the way!
*sees a growing crowd*
...better make sure I have plenty of 105mm.

Bah she needs to spend some time with the SAS then...

R5lT7kdx9gk
They'll toughen her up. :mad:
Quite. Price's execution of Al-Asad took me by surprise, even though it would be what an SAS operative would do.
that intent is real for me at least, you can't chose my career path and not ask yourself if you could really kill other people and I can safely say that yes I can and might well have too.
One might say that if you don't want to kill, you shouldn't join the Army. So, what's your planned MOS? Infantry? Armor? Special Forces?

A well done one on one Duels is cool, they're stupid, but they are cool you can't deny that. :p
That might be what Nanoha is all about: cool fights...

Acutally only her really heavy spells seem able to do that and she couldn't jsut spam those willy nilly she certainly won't be leveling any buildings with accel shooter or even Divine Buster.

I'd disagree this is more like an attack helicopter and the problem with those is they tend to have to get close enough for the targets to shot back which complicates matters. I've always consider mages less aircraft and more highly mobile helicopters.
I was basically thinking the same thing. I'm pretty sure the TSAB looks down on mages throwing around powerful spells wily-nily in population centers. It's then a race between time for the ground team to evade her and her Wide Area Search while setting up their ambush, while dealing with the Forwards, all at the same time.

Yeah Signum/Maiden? I don't think so. :eyebrow:

Well....Signum...in a kimono....or a white gi... standing under a waterfall.... :uhoh:

Snippet Time

I can't believe this chapter, despite its short length, took me that much longer to write.

Here's the continuation to my previous chapter.



Cranagan City Outskirts: Residential Districts
2058 hours.

It was a quaint little place, sandwiched in the middle of other similar places in the row of houses that occupied this side of the street, so conforming, and so typical. An unassuming and simple ranch bungalow, dark and seemingly unoccupied, its appearance illuminated only by the nearby streetlamp.

Inside that house, that light was all Gwen required, sitting by the edge of her humble bed in her small, silent room, watching the rain continue to pour outside...

A soft sniffle broke the silence, and her attention was captured by her charge, her young friend whose head laid on her lap. The girl with silky long black hair, and her soft, sleeping face, with an almost angelic expression, seemingly unknown to the worries of this world.

Except for the stain of tears that ran down her cheeks.

Another sniffle and Gwen responded with a slow, gentle stroke of her petite hands through the girl’s hair.

Even in sleep, the pain still lingered.

And Gwen’s empathies found it unbearably difficult to witness.

To see Mai so hurt, so miserable, so broken, to see one of her dearest friend’s anguish to this degree. A tortured soul who can only shed her agonies through her warm, salty tears.

Her heart suffered as much as Mai’s suffered. And Mai’s pain was her own as well.

A burden she gladly carried, a pain she suffered unconditionally, if this was required of her to ease her friend’s distress, no matter how seemingly fruitless or futile.

For if there was one thing she could not stand to see exist in this world, it was pain in a friend’s soul.

Especially pain caused by the acts of another.

“… Remi no… baka…” Mai murmured. Slowly, sadly, the subconscious revelation of a sad girl unconscious.

“I know.” Gwen replied softly, even though her words would not reach their intended recipient. Words that hung in the cool, damp air, claiming the silence for herself, as she thought about certain coincidences.

It was a good thing Gwen had been here when she did, called back here to Midchilda by an anonymous note, she had been preparing herself for what was presumably another mission by her employers. Pending their forthcoming orders, she had made herself comfortable here.

No, this place was already that, here in this small ranch bungalow along Pine Street, one of many such similar houses along this street, a common bungalow amongst uncountable others like it. And yet for her, this place was most than just a run-of-the-mill house.

Once, this was home.

This was a most familiar place to her; for three years she had lived here along with the other significant people in her life – her sisters by fate, Iris, Natalia and Ashelyn, and other companions from her current employers, most notably Cyrille. This simple house was a shelter from the turmoil and stress of the missions they undertook, the assignments they endured. It was an oasis of souls, where their bodies found rest, and their minds eased of all their troubles and worries. Amidst the confusion and uncertainty, here in this humble refuge did all of them find the most valuable, yet most fleeting of all human needs: Peace.

Here in this house, they were neither mere experiments nor employers. Neither weapons, nor servants to a higher power.

They were themselves. They were friends. They were sisters.

Most of all, they were family.

Though they no longer resided under its roof, the safehouse was still there, available, with its doors ever willing to provide them a shelter when in need.

All of them. Including Mai.

‘I wanted to see you.’

She recalled Mai’s words as she comforted her on the alleyway under the pouring rain, holding her by those cold shoulders, leading her destitute heart into refuge.

Gwen could not imagine what would’ve happened to Mai had she not been there. Had she not been here in this circumstance, walking out in the rain to grab some supplies for her own extended stay. Would Mai have been left alone, drenched in the cold, bitter rain, waiting for solace that would never come? A soul abandoned in the wet asphalt alley, consumed by the emptiness of the night? Cowering in anguish and despair?

None of that mattered now. She could only be glad that fate had not dealt them a more severe hand.

She was here, here for the weeping girl on her lap, the anguished soul of a sister in need.

In need of care, in need of protection. In need of counsel, and in need of-

*Brrrrrrrrrr*

- Nourishment.

The young redhead could only manage a wan smile at her hungry charge, as she gently lifted Mai’s head off her lap and unto a pillow, lest she disturb the young maiden’s sleep.

She softly stroked her friend’s hair once again.

“I won’t take long Mai.” She whispered in her ear.

And left her with a kiss on the forehead for reassurance.

“I’ll be right back.”

*cue Ave Maria*

Touching. Added with the fact that it's raining outside here, I felt I wanted to cry for Mai. :(

Name: Rinya Shuri A’Kalash
Alias: Rin
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Date of birth: March 8, MC 056
Family: Bedario Shuri A’Kalash (father), Lilira Shuri A’Kalash (mother), Rikko Shuri A’Kalash (brother)
Hair Colour: Light blue
Eye Colour: Orange

Affiliation: Time-Space Administration Bureau / Air Armament service / “Dragonfly” Squadron
Position: 2nd Lieutenant / Dragonfly 01
Wizard Ranking: AA
Magic System: Neo-Belka
Magic Colour: Green
Device: Windlanze (Armed / Spear)


Background:

Birth & Childhood:
Rinya was born on Vedir into the Shuri family of the A’Kalash tribe.
Vedir was a world covered with wide windy canyons; most of them so deep that the sunlight never reaches the bottom, thus making the Vedirians live on top of the many plateaus. It was through this planet surface that the Vedirian tribes developed a unique culture where aviation is the main way of movement and transport. So Rinya was born with the blood of aviators.

Ever since she could remember, she had always dreamt of flying. Her father, the owner and pilot of a small air-cargo freight business, trained her in flying cargo gliders so that she could later work with him and carry on the family business some day.

At the age of ten, she went to a TSAB flight show with her family. The first moment she saw the aerial mages, she knew that she wanted to fly like them in the sky, without a glider or plane.
Her father didn’t like her sudden decision and ordered her to stop the stupid thinking at once. Rinya of course, did not.

Since then, the tension within the family never vanished and at the age of twelve she left her home and joined the TSAB.

In service:
Influenced by the traditions of her home world, which reached back to ancient Belka, she chose the Belkan style of magic, even if it wasn't the best choice for someone who wanted to become an aerial mage. But, with passion and hardwork, she succeeded to enter aerial training.

While she was normally good at teamwork, the somewhat reckless nature of her attacks made it difficult for her to adapt to the ways the aerial mages fought, and she nearly dropped out of aerial training. To her luck, an instructor saw the potential of her being more of a melee attacker than a ranged combat mage. Rinya was given an instructor that taught her the fighting style of a Belka Ritter, and, considering the history of her homeworld, she was given her own Device that was created after a traditional Vedirian aerial melee weapon.

Thanks to this, Rinya was able to graduate from the training school as one of the top ranking students, as an A-ranked aerial mage.

Dragonfly:
After graduation, Rinya was assigned to the Air Armaments Service Squadron "Dragonfly", an experienced battle squadron that handled patrol and rescue missions.

Rinya's first big mission was when Dragonfly helped other units in the search for a Class-1 criminal that was detected in Central Midchilda.

Dragonfly found the fugitive, but, Rinya, who was the most inexperienced, was the first to be wounded in battle and was ordered to retreat at once. She later discovered that Dragonfly was totally wiped out.
Rinya wanted to return to battle immediately, but, for her condition, was ordered to stay behind. While she was being treated at the first-aid station, the criminal was captured.

Road to Officer:
As the only survivor of Dragonfly, Rinya was sent on leave and she visited her family on Vedir, but the still-existing tension between her and her father made her return to Midchilda quickly.
Back in service, she supported other aerial squadrons on different missions.

It was the JS incident that brought her to the attention of her superiors.
During the battle against the Saint's Cradle, Rinya was flying around the battlefield, supporting other units and engaging Drones in direct combat.
Through her bravery and quick-thinking on the field, she was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and was sent to an Officer's course, her official rank now determined as AA.

Personality:
Rinya is a bright and energetic person that some people would even call her reckless.
She can be very proud and stubborn sometimes, but this is only to hide her true feelings when she is insecure.
Rinya loves flying and is very glad she joined TSAB because of it. She still thinks very fondly of her old home, even though she is not on good terms with her father.
She also tries to see the good in people first.

Windlanze
Windlanze (Wind Lance) is a device crafted after a Vedirian wind-rider's lance.
In ancient Belka, these traditional weapons were used by Vedirian knights in aerial battles and air jousting.
Swung in fast flight, the lance could deal massive damage on impact to its target.
Windlanze is additionally equipped with a second form and a Belkan cartridge system.

Modes:
Klingenform (Blade Form):
Windlanze’s standard form is a short spear with a long blade.

Zwillingsklingenform (Twin Blade Form):
A second blade appears on the other side of the now-shortened hilt. This form is used when battling more opponents at once.



Defensive Spells:

Knight Armour:
Rinyas Knight Armour is a green and white bodysuit. Armour parts cover the upper torso, shoulders, forearms, knees and feet. The Knight Armour is designed to prefer mobility over protection.

Sturmschild (Storm Shield):
Shield spell in form of a triangle.

Windtanz (Wind Dance)
A spell that increases the casters speed and allows almost instantaneous movement.

Offensive Spells:

Luftmesser (Air Knife):
A spell that is using magic to compress and accelerate the air around the device. It enables the caster to create blades of wind and throw them at the target.

Windschnitter (Wind Reaper):
A more powerful version of Luftmesser.
This spell needs a cartridge to be activated.

Sturmangriff (Assault):
A spell that uses Windtanz as base.
Magical energy is infused into the blade of the device enhancing its ability to penetrate shields and armour. The caster is then boosted forward, allowing him a single strike with the enhanced blade.
This spell needs two cartridges to be activated.

THE GEMINI SISTERS II
CHAPTER 4

He opened his eyes. “Oh, I’m back at the hall,” he murmured and looked around him. “But who are these people? And why they look like knights or something?” It took the street performer a few seconds before he realized the murderous glare of a scar-riddled knight and feigned unconsciousness “I didn’t see it… I didn’t see it… I didn’t see it…”

“Reiher! Give him CPR!”

One of the people appeared behind the armoured knight. “Yes, sir!”

The dark-skinned, Afro knight did what he was told. Matilda and female Belkan knights blushed at the yaoi-bait scene. Freya and Aura were appalled. Keiko had to turn away in embarrassment.

Yutaro snapped. He kicked the Afro knight out of the way. “What… what the hell was that for?!” he screamed, hoarsely gasping for air.

“Sir! It appears this boy is alright,” the Afro knight reported.

Yutaro had recovered from the frightening experience and sat on the floor. “What the hell is really going on?” he demanded. “Who are these people, anyway?”

“Brat! You don’t know who you’re dealing with!” one of the foreign knights snarled.

“You dare questioning the Von Dietrich Clan,” his friend added and withdrew a dagger. “Shall I cut your tongue into pieces?”

A woman coughed, and immediately the two hostile knights retreated to their spot. “My apology for the complicated matters we caused,” the woman spoke. “Pleased to meet you, Wakamoto Yutaro. I am Katrina von Dietrich, and this is my husband Kaiser Erick von Dietrich, Chairperson of the von Dietrich Clan.”

Yutaro turned to the said Chairperson. Mr. Von Dietrich immediately shot him a murderous sight. “Knight? He’s more like a Yakuza to me!” Yutaro gulped.

“And the man who performed the CPR to you just now is Reiher,” Mrs. Von Dietrich continued. “Don’t worry. He just wanted to save your life.”

“It is my honour,” Reiher spoke, his Ray-Ban mysteriously sparkled.

Matilda and female Belkan knights sighed. “Reiher-san…”

“Excuse me for interrupting,” Keiko spoke. “But why is the Von Dietrich Clan suddenly here? As far as I am concerned, the last time the Belkan Knights and the Von Dietrich ever came to contact was 225 years ago during the Miranda Confrontation.”

“That is correct,” Mrs. von Dietrich replied. “We’re here for family business, actually. It appeared one of our family members had faced a very serious incident.”

“We are the honoured dragon clan,” Mr. Von Dietrich spoke. “We are strictly forbidden from revealing our true form to regular people whatever the reasons we have to face.”

“Dragon clan? So you can transform into a dragon?” Matilda asked.

“Dragon?” Yutaro remembered the time he saw Freya’s unknown form. He twitched. “Crap! Does this mean…”

Mr. von Dietrich’s reply was to withdraw his Zweihander and aimed it at Yutaro’s neck. “This brat saw my cute Freya’s identity, and he is not supposed to see it! How dare he… how dare he do THIS and THAT to my cute Freya while I wasn’t around!”

“Kaiser Erick, please calm down!” Reiher pleaded and strangled Mr. von Dietrich.

“We fiercely protect this secret for generations from the lineage of our ancestor Daniel the Great,” Mrs. Von Dietrich spoke. “The law of Von Dietrich states that anyone from this family who exposes his or her true identity to the society will be sentenced to death. I am sure Miss Galatea has explained it to all of you.”

“It’s fortunate that the Knights of Yellow Rose had agreed to keep this matter secret from the public,” Galatea spoke. “Things would have turned to worse if the people get their hands on this incident.”

“I object! Freya did that to save Yutaro’s life! What would you do if you faced the same situation as her?” Poseidon snarled.

“Then Yutaro will have to be executed as well,” Mrs. Von Dietrich said. “The secret of the dragon clan cannot and shall not be revealed to the world whatever the consequences this family have to face.”

“No way…” Poseidon chided.

“I hate to agree, but this is the law we have to abide,” Mr. Von Dietrich continued and again turned to the frightened Yutaro. “But not before I slay the brat into pieces!” he roared and tried killing the boy before Reiher strangled him.

Mrs. Von Dietrich later grinned. “But of course, we can spare his life if he agrees to become a member of this house,” she said.

“What does that suppose to mean?” Matilda said.

Mrs. Von Dietrich pointed to the ceiling. “Yutaro will have to marry Freya.”

The suggestion sent a very deep shock into everybody in the hall. Yutaro, especially, found himself shaking uncontrollably due to the suggestion. “No freaking way!”

“Married? My cute Freya marries that useless piece of flesh?” Mr. Von Dietrich growled and plunged the Zweihander into the floor. “He must step over my dead body first! Nobody is allowed to marry my cute Freya until I say he can!”

“But dear, he already knew her identity,” Mrs. Von Dietrich spoke. “If he doesn’t want to die, then he has to become her groom.”

“Never! I’ll only say yes when I SAY yes!” Mr. Von Dietrich replied.

“Papa!”

Everybody turned to Freya. “If you refuse to bless our relationship,” she said and suddenly fell onto her back. “Then just execute me!”

“But Freya, you can’t live with that maggot!” Mr. Von Dietrich replied.

“This is my life! I’m the one who decides it! Not anyone! Not even Papa!” Freya replied.

“Oneechan is right!” along came Aura’s voice as she, too, lay next to Freya. “If she has to die, then let me die with her!”

Mrs. Von Dietrich sighed. “Look at that. Father and his twin daughters. Always refuse to accept each other’s difference,” she said.

Poseidon nodded. “They’re twins, after all.”

“Freya…” Yutaro murmured.

Mr. Von Dietrich trembled. “If that bastard wants to marry my cute Freya,” he murmured and pulled out the Zweihander, “then he must prepare to accept his death! My brethrens!”

The von Dietrich knights transformed into dragons. “ROAR!!!!”

Yutaro fled the people but was stopped in the middle of the way by a dagger tossed by Reiher. He turned to the Afro knight, and was horrified as the person sported a smile that was as calm as it was threatening. “I might not know your affair with Meister Freya, but you must accept the suggestion or face the consequences,” he spoke.

Matilda and female Belkan knights sighed. “Reiher-san…”

“I don’t have time to answer the question!” Yutaro took a detour but was ambushed by an oversized salt-water crocodile when he approached the door. “A crocodile!!!????”

“THANK YOU FOR THE MEAL!!!!” Draco Tsukihiro cheered and pounced at Yutaro, but its tackle missed when the boy dodged. “Shit. When I thought I could have my free meal right now…”

“How can a crocodile become a dragon clan member?!” Yutaro asked.

“Should I tell you the answer?” Draco Tsukihiro asked in sly voice and again pounced at Yutaro. “Do not run away! I will eat you piece by piece!”

Poseidon kicked Draco Tsukihiro to the wall with a roundhouse. “A beast’s worthy opponent is a beast,” the white tiger spoke and opened a kung-fu stance. “Yutaro, go. I’ll cover you.”

“I owe you one, Poseidon-san!”

Yutaro left Poseidon with the pissed Draco Tsukihiro and faced Mr. Von Dietrich. “Can we have a peaceful discussion?” he asked, and was forced to dodge the Zweihander when the Kaiser refused. “I thought this is a democratic government!!”

“Hold it right there.”

The mayhem stopped. Mr. Von Dietrich and his followers looked to the front and saw Frieda standing at the entrance door. “May I know what is going on, everybody?” she asked and corrected her eyeglasses.

“Okaasan!” Freya and Aura gasped.

“Miss Frieda, help!” Yutaro left the chaos and hurled towards Frieda. “You have to help me! These people are going to kill me!”

“I heard you’re going to marry Freya,” Frieda said. “Well, why hadn’t you told me of your feeling towards her before?”

“Why in a sudden you ask me that?!” Yutaro wailed and flailed his arms.

“Who the hell are you, bitch?!” one of the dragon-men snarled.

The Gunslinger Knight turned to the people. “I’m the Gemini Sisters’ custodian,” Frieda replied and withdrew Beowulf. “Frieda Johansen. I’m also their surrogate mother. Pleased to meet you.”

“Then we’ll have to kill you as well!” The dragon-men charged at the Gunslinger Knights when bullets suddenly knocked their swords off their hands. “What the hell is that?”

“Touch Miss Frieda and die,” along came Takeru’s voice as he appeared behind Frieda (clinging onto his back was a timid-looking Yumemi). He withdrew Schwarz Todd, loaded the dual handguns and opened a Gun Kata stance. “So, shall we dance?”

“I thought the Belkan Knights and the von Dietrich clan are at peace!” Matilda spoke as the von Dietrich knights and the Belkan knights fought each other.

“This has nothing to do with peace!” Mr. von Dietrich howled and swung the Zweihander at Yutaro’s head -- again, it missed. “This is family business!”

Mrs. Von Dietrich sighed. “Men…” She left her sitting spot and approached Frieda. “Ms. Johansen,” she said and bowed to her. “We must thank you for taking care of our twin daughters along our absence. We owe you a lot for your deeds.”

“It doesn’t matter,” Frieda said with a smile. “I have long considered them as my beloved daughters.” She later took off the eyeglasses and bowed to Mrs. Von Dietrich. “Now, if you excuse me.”

Frieda left the smiling mother behind and jumped at Mr. Von Dietrich who was blindingly attacking Yutaro. “Aura! Freya! Take Yutaro out of here!” she shouted as she blocked the Kaiser’s Zweihander.

“Got it, Okaasan!” the Gemini Sisters replied and seized Yutaro’s hand. “Yutaro, follow us!”

Galatea and Sao decided to stay neutral throughout the frantic brawl (and let Takeru’s little sister and Keiko join them). “What is your next plan, Master?” Sao asked.

“What if we follow Yutaro and ask him more questions on… his feelings?” Galatea suggested. “Sao, provide escape route.”

“Yes, Master.”

Sao transformed into an Oxtongue Rifle and was caught by Galatea who, then, fired an energy beam onto the wall. She holstered the weapon over shoulder and sported a grin. “So, who wants to follow me?”

The escapees landed on the lakeside. Yutaro fell onto his butt as the Gemini Sisters let go off him. Freya and Aura landed on a piece of boulder and sat on it. They were still in their dragon-girl form, and Yutaro could not help asking himself if this was the reason their family objected their relationship.

“That was so close…” he gasped. “Thank god father isn’t here…”

The twin sisters suddenly blushed. “Father?”

Yutaro laughed. “No, no! I mean I was fortunate my father isn’t here, or he’d kill me,” he answered. “That reminds me. If that meeting can be thought as a reunion, then why aren’t you happy to see your parents?”

“Sou…” Freya threw their sight into the evening sky, as she returned to her normal form. Suddenly, and mysteriously, a Japanese classical song played in the background, and cherry blossom petals materialized in thin air. “We cherish our freedom, and we want to enjoy our life as much as we can. Papa has been strict at deciding our path of life, and he doesn’t believe in one’s freedom.”

“Freya…”

Aura took her twin sister’s hand. “This is the path we have agreed to take since we joined the School,” she spoke. “If Papa doesn’t agree with us, then we’ll fight for it. Even though our life is at stake.”

The sky suddenly trembled. Yutaro looked up and saw a giant wyvern soaring above them. “I get a bad feeling about this…”

“Papa!” the Gemini Sisters gasped.

Mr. Von Dietrich jumped off the wyvern and landed in front of Yutaro. “Finally found you, maggot…” he spoke and withdrew the Zweihander. “Took me a long time to outsmart the gunslinger knight, but I finally got away.”

“We thought Okaasan is unbeaten!” the Gemini Sisters protested.

By now, Frieda, Takeru, the Knights of Yellow Rose, Reiher, Galatea, Sao, Mrs. Von Dietrich and everybody else arrived. They had ended the brawl without losses on both sides, but found themselves too late to stop Mr. Von Dietrich’s execution.

“He’s one tough opponent, I must admit,” Frieda spoke.

“Dear! Can you ever stop for a while and spare the boy?” Mrs. Von Dietrich asked.

Mr. Von Dietrich seemed to ignore his wife’s advice and was equipping the Zweihander with cartridges. “I hope you have prepared your last will, maggot,” he spoke. “Do you have anything to say before I send you to the afterlife?”

“Can we… have a negotiation for a while?” Yutaro suggested.

“Stay still. I’m going to cut you into pieces…” Mr. Von Dietrich spoke, his eyes shooting blood.

“Dear!” Mrs. Von Dietrich shouted.

“Papa!” Aura cried out.

“Yutaro!” Freya screamed.

Yutaro was desperate. He needed to do something. He knew he was not at fault. He knew he had to make things clear.

And Mr. Von Dietrich had lifted the Zweihander high over his head.

There’s only one final option.

“Father-in-law!”

Yutaro knelt before the Kaiser and slammed the rock-hard ground with his bare palms. “Please give your daughter to me!”

Freya was startled. Aura gasped. Galatea batted an impressed eyebrow. Mrs. Von Dietrich smiled. Matilda clapped her hands. Keiko sighed in relief. Takeru nodded. Frieda chuckled. Poseidon tossed a victorious fist.

“If you want the secret to be safe, then let me become a part of your family!” Yutaro added and bowed to Mr. Von Dietrich. “So… so… SO PLEASE BLESS OUR MARRIAGE, FATHER-IN-LAW!”

“You… you…” Mr. Von Dietrich dropped the Zweihander, grabbed Yutaro’s collar and threw him into the lake. “JUST GO TO HELL AND DIE!!!!”

“I thought this is the best option!” Yutaro yelled as he fell into the lake.

“Yutaro!” Freya transformed into dragon-girl and jumped into the lake to save him.

Galatea wrote down something in the notepad. “Wakamoto Yutaro. Today, he declared he would accept Mrs. Von Dietrich’s offer and became a member of the clan. This automatically earns him the right to marry Freya and become her groom.”

She smiled. “This is relevant to my interest.”

This turns out be a quite interesting soap drama. :heh: :heh: and I can already imagine the real Yutaro's attempt to dry Freya's legs. :uhoh:

TEARS OF THE NORTHERN WIND
CHAPTER 4, part 1

// 2nd November, MC0072. Kiev, Ukraine //

The hunt had begun.

The Riot Force 6 and the 21st Unit were exploring every inch of the capital city for clues of the Gale Whistler. The Phantom Squad and the 82nd Division also joined force, as well as the Linebackers. It was a race that would pit them against time and the unforgiving reality of the world.

“Did you find anything?”

Nanoha shook her head. “It’s still early. I can’t say anything about it.”

The Ace quartet continued their search around the boulevard. “Don’t you think it’s weird, Nanoha-chan?” Hayate asked as she picked up a piece of metal debris. “A Lost Logia belonged to a king, a boy said to be a Chronomancer, and a lost civilization serving as a planet’s protector? This is far more complicated than the Relics' case.”

“I’m more curious of this place,” Keroko said and looked around. “Did anyone of us realize this city had used to be a battlefield?”

“How can you tell?” Fate asked. “There has been no recorded battle on Earth for four years.”

The Aces continued searching. This time, they headed to the mausoleum, walking past people who paid them no attention. The chill began biting them; did the citizens deliberately ignore them?

“[Have you found any clues, Nanoha-san?]”

“We’re heading to the cemetery,” Nanoha responded to Yuuno’s radio call.

“[The cemetery? Hang on. We have latest information about the Gale Whistler’s girlfriend. I’ll let Armstrong-san explain.]”

“Girlfriend?”

“[This is Armstrong. The name of the girl is Yuu. She perished while protecting the Gale Whistler from his berserk sister. She was buried along with thousands of citizens who died in the Battles of Kiev.]”

“No wonder why there aren’t any visitors here,” Hayate spoke. “This place brings them painful memories.”

“[According to documents we recovered, the Gale Whistler had used his Chronograph power three times. The energy reading taken by our agents during the event showed it exceeded all expectations.]”

“Hold on! You can’t be this serious, Ojiichan. How can we be so sure he’s more powerful than anyone of us?”

“[Keroko, the boy is stronger than anybody else for one sole reason: his father was an Immortal. Added with his Chronograph circuit and his years of experience as a street combatant, he’s not to be taken lightly.]”

“Immortal… that doesn’t sound good, does it?”

“Where can we find him anyway, Ojiichan?”

“[We’ll search this city first. If there’s no trace of the Gale Whistler, then we’ll proceed to another location.]” The Aces did not answer the transmission. “[Ladies? What’s the matter?]”

“Someone’s visiting the grave. We’ll speak to you later.” Nanoha approached the lone person the four women saw, who was at the time putting a flower bouquet on the tombstone. “Excuse me.”

The person turned to Nanoha, revealing a pair of radiant sapphire eyes that had the sparks of acceptance. “Haii?”

Nanoha was startled. “You’re Japanese.”

The person nodded. “Haii.”

I assumed while writing this first part that everybody's available after StrikerS, unless they have other plans. :uhoh: :uhoh:

BTW, the person at the ending? That's Hikki's WAIFU. :uhoh:

Well, here's Ivanovich's spell list, finally done:


Compared to other mages, Ivanovich's spell list is quite short, with his biggest spell being roughly equivalent to Divine Buster. As Harvest takes the form of a rifle, almost all of Ivanovich's spells are ranged attacks. Unlike Nanoha, however, he focuses on highly accurate, tightly targeted attacks - very similar to Vice. Unlike Nanoha or Fate, Ivanovich uses 12-cartridge magazines for Harvest, and carries many spare mags with him.

Attack Spells:
Variable Shot: Ivanovich uses the power of two cartridges to form a barrier around a magical bullet, allowing it to penetrate Gadget Drone AMF. Harvest is capable of focusing and forming the barrier and bullet without operator input. (AA-rank, 2 cartridges)

Heatseeker Twins: Ivanovich fires a pair of heatseeking shots that home in on their target. This attack launches magical projectiles with attack power of B, AA speed and A+ homing ability. (AA-rank, 2 cartridges)

Blaze Cannon: Copying one of the standard spells used by Enforcers, Ivanovich uses this fire-based spell in like manner to a flamethrower, producing a jet of fire that shoots out forward. By adjusting the input power, he can control the strength, intensity, and range of the stream. (B to AA-rank; uses no cartridges at B, 1 cartridge at A, 2 at AA. Strength adjustible.)

Barrett Shot: Ivanovich's version of Barrett Shot is almost identical to the standard version in use, except that Harvest fires 3 shots per cartridge instead of 4, giving a slight increase in power to each shot while reducing the volume of fire by 25%. Once Barrett Shot is active, all Ivanovich needs to do is to pull the trigger, until he runs out of cartridges.

Autumn Pillar: Ivanovich's answer to bombardment spells. This spell manages to hit AAA rank using 4 cartridges and fires a concentrated beam at the target. The beam is of comparable power to Divine Buster Extension, but with a smaller "caliber", and concentrates magical energy into penetration power and range. (AAA-rank, 4 cartridges. Similar power to A's Divine Buster Extension, but with more range and lesser kinetic impact.)

Shock Bolter: Modified from Franz's Blitz Bolter, Ivanovich uses this spell in hand to hand combat. It is essentially the same spell, sans lightning element.

Defensive Spells:
Barrier Jacket: Standard OFM Assault Platoon Barrier Jacket, resembling ODST armor.

Protection: Standard Barrier-type spell.

Round Shield: Standard Shield-type spell.

Jacket Purge: Following the principles of Reactive Armor, Ivanovich can detonate the outer layers of his Barrier Jacket as a defence, revealing the battledress fatigues he wears below.

Other Spells:
Flier Fin: Like Nanoha's original Flier Fin, but with less manuverability. If Nanaha's manuverability is that of a RAH-66 Comanche, Ivanovich's manuverability is like a CH-46 Sea Knight.

Chain Bind: As with Yuuno's version.

Flash Move: Speeds up Ivanovich, typically used in dodging or to tackle escaping targets.



Nice spell list here, nicely detailed and useful while maintaining respectable power levels :)

THE GEMINI SISTERS II
CHAPTER 4

He opened his eyes. “Oh, I’m back at the hall,” he murmured and looked around him. “But who are these people? And why they look like knights or something?” It took the street performer a few seconds before he realized the murderous glare of a scar-riddled knight and feigned unconsciousness “I didn’t see it… I didn’t see it… I didn’t see it…”

“Reiher! Give him CPR!”

One of the people appeared behind the armoured knight. “Yes, sir!”

The dark-skinned, Afro knight did what he was told. Matilda and female Belkan knights blushed at the yaoi-bait scene. Freya and Aura were appalled. Keiko had to turn away in embarrassment.

Yutaro snapped. He kicked the Afro knight out of the way. “What… what the hell was that for?!” he screamed, hoarsely gasping for air.

“Sir! It appears this boy is alright,” the Afro knight reported.

Yutaro had recovered from the frightening experience and sat on the floor. “What the hell is really going on?” he demanded. “Who are these people, anyway?”

“Brat! You don’t know who you’re dealing with!” one of the foreign knights snarled.

“You dare questioning the Von Dietrich Clan,” his friend added and withdrew a dagger. “Shall I cut your tongue into pieces?”

A woman coughed, and immediately the two hostile knights retreated to their spot. “My apology for the complicated matters we caused,” the woman spoke. “Pleased to meet you, Wakamoto Yutaro. I am Katrina von Dietrich, and this is my husband Kaiser Erick von Dietrich, Chairperson of the von Dietrich Clan.”

Yutaro turned to the said Chairperson. Mr. Von Dietrich immediately shot him a murderous sight. “Knight? He’s more like a Yakuza to me!” Yutaro gulped.

“And the man who performed the CPR to you just now is Reiher,” Mrs. Von Dietrich continued. “Don’t worry. He just wanted to save your life.”

“It is my honour,” Reiher spoke, his Ray-Ban mysteriously sparkled.

Matilda and female Belkan knights sighed. “Reiher-san…”

“Excuse me for interrupting,” Keiko spoke. “But why is the Von Dietrich Clan suddenly here? As far as I am concerned, the last time the Belkan Knights and the Von Dietrich ever came to contact was 225 years ago during the Miranda Confrontation.”

“That is correct,” Mrs. von Dietrich replied. “We’re here for family business, actually. It appeared one of our family members had faced a very serious incident.”

“We are the honoured dragon clan,” Mr. Von Dietrich spoke. “We are strictly forbidden from revealing our true form to regular people whatever the reasons we have to face.”

“Dragon clan? So you can transform into a dragon?” Matilda asked.

“Dragon?” Yutaro remembered the time he saw Freya’s unknown form. He twitched. “Crap! Does this mean…”

Mr. von Dietrich’s reply was to withdraw his Zweihander and aimed it at Yutaro’s neck. “This brat saw my cute Freya’s identity, and he is not supposed to see it! How dare he… how dare he do THIS and THAT to my cute Freya while I wasn’t around!”

“Kaiser Erick, please calm down!” Reiher pleaded and strangled Mr. von Dietrich.

“We fiercely protect this secret for generations from the lineage of our ancestor Daniel the Great,” Mrs. Von Dietrich spoke. “The law of Von Dietrich states that anyone from this family who exposes his or her true identity to the society will be sentenced to death. I am sure Miss Galatea has explained it to all of you.”

“It’s fortunate that the Knights of Yellow Rose had agreed to keep this matter secret from the public,” Galatea spoke. “Things would have turned to worse if the people get their hands on this incident.”

“I object! Freya did that to save Yutaro’s life! What would you do if you faced the same situation as her?” Poseidon snarled.

“Then Yutaro will have to be executed as well,” Mrs. Von Dietrich said. “The secret of the dragon clan cannot and shall not be revealed to the world whatever the consequences this family have to face.”

“No way…” Poseidon chided.

“I hate to agree, but this is the law we have to abide,” Mr. Von Dietrich continued and again turned to the frightened Yutaro. “But not before I slay the brat into pieces!” he roared and tried killing the boy before Reiher strangled him.

Mrs. Von Dietrich later grinned. “But of course, we can spare his life if he agrees to become a member of this house,” she said.

“What does that suppose to mean?” Matilda said.

Mrs. Von Dietrich pointed to the ceiling. “Yutaro will have to marry Freya.”

The suggestion sent a very deep shock into everybody in the hall. Yutaro, especially, found himself shaking uncontrollably due to the suggestion. “No freaking way!”

“Married? My cute Freya marries that useless piece of flesh?” Mr. Von Dietrich growled and plunged the Zweihander into the floor. “He must step over my dead body first! Nobody is allowed to marry my cute Freya until I say he can!”

“But dear, he already knew her identity,” Mrs. Von Dietrich spoke. “If he doesn’t want to die, then he has to become her groom.”

“Never! I’ll only say yes when I SAY yes!” Mr. Von Dietrich replied.

“Papa!”

Everybody turned to Freya. “If you refuse to bless our relationship,” she said and suddenly fell onto her back. “Then just execute me!”

“But Freya, you can’t live with that maggot!” Mr. Von Dietrich replied.

“This is my life! I’m the one who decides it! Not anyone! Not even Papa!” Freya replied.

“Oneechan is right!” along came Aura’s voice as she, too, lay next to Freya. “If she has to die, then let me die with her!”

Mrs. Von Dietrich sighed. “Look at that. Father and his twin daughters. Always refuse to accept each other’s difference,” she said.

Poseidon nodded. “They’re twins, after all.”

“Freya…” Yutaro murmured.

Mr. Von Dietrich trembled. “If that bastard wants to marry my cute Freya,” he murmured and pulled out the Zweihander, “then he must prepare to accept his death! My brethrens!”

The von Dietrich knights transformed into dragons. “ROAR!!!!”

Yutaro fled the people but was stopped in the middle of the way by a dagger tossed by Reiher. He turned to the Afro knight, and was horrified as the person sported a smile that was as calm as it was threatening. “I might not know your affair with Meister Freya, but you must accept the suggestion or face the consequences,” he spoke.

Matilda and female Belkan knights sighed. “Reiher-san…”

“I don’t have time to answer the question!” Yutaro took a detour but was ambushed by an oversized salt-water crocodile when he approached the door. “A crocodile!!!????”

“THANK YOU FOR THE MEAL!!!!” Draco Tsukihiro cheered and pounced at Yutaro, but its tackle missed when the boy dodged. “Shit. When I thought I could have my free meal right now…”

“How can a crocodile become a dragon clan member?!” Yutaro asked.

“Should I tell you the answer?” Draco Tsukihiro asked in sly voice and again pounced at Yutaro. “Do not run away! I will eat you piece by piece!”

Poseidon kicked Draco Tsukihiro to the wall with a roundhouse. “A beast’s worthy opponent is a beast,” the white tiger spoke and opened a kung-fu stance. “Yutaro, go. I’ll cover you.”

“I owe you one, Poseidon-san!”

Yutaro left Poseidon with the pissed Draco Tsukihiro and faced Mr. Von Dietrich. “Can we have a peaceful discussion?” he asked, and was forced to dodge the Zweihander when the Kaiser refused. “I thought this is a democratic government!!”

“Hold it right there.”

The mayhem stopped. Mr. Von Dietrich and his followers looked to the front and saw Frieda standing at the entrance door. “May I know what is going on, everybody?” she asked and corrected her eyeglasses.

“Okaasan!” Freya and Aura gasped.

“Miss Frieda, help!” Yutaro left the chaos and hurled towards Frieda. “You have to help me! These people are going to kill me!”

“I heard you’re going to marry Freya,” Frieda said. “Well, why hadn’t you told me of your feeling towards her before?”

“Why in a sudden you ask me that?!” Yutaro wailed and flailed his arms.

“Who the hell are you, bitch?!” one of the dragon-men snarled.

The Gunslinger Knight turned to the people. “I’m the Gemini Sisters’ custodian,” Frieda replied and withdrew Beowulf. “Frieda Johansen. I’m also their surrogate mother. Pleased to meet you.”

“Then we’ll have to kill you as well!” The dragon-men charged at the Gunslinger Knights when bullets suddenly knocked their swords off their hands. “What the hell is that?”

“Touch Miss Frieda and die,” along came Takeru’s voice as he appeared behind Frieda (clinging onto his back was a timid-looking Yumemi). He withdrew Schwarz Todd, loaded the dual handguns and opened a Gun Kata stance. “So, shall we dance?”

“I thought the Belkan Knights and the von Dietrich clan are at peace!” Matilda spoke as the von Dietrich knights and the Belkan knights fought each other.

“This has nothing to do with peace!” Mr. von Dietrich howled and swung the Zweihander at Yutaro’s head -- again, it missed. “This is family business!”

Mrs. Von Dietrich sighed. “Men…” She left her sitting spot and approached Frieda. “Ms. Johansen,” she said and bowed to her. “We must thank you for taking care of our twin daughters along our absence. We owe you a lot for your deeds.”

“It doesn’t matter,” Frieda said with a smile. “I have long considered them as my beloved daughters.” She later took off the eyeglasses and bowed to Mrs. Von Dietrich. “Now, if you excuse me.”

Frieda left the smiling mother behind and jumped at Mr. Von Dietrich who was blindingly attacking Yutaro. “Aura! Freya! Take Yutaro out of here!” she shouted as she blocked the Kaiser’s Zweihander.

“Got it, Okaasan!” the Gemini Sisters replied and seized Yutaro’s hand. “Yutaro, follow us!”

Galatea and Sao decided to stay neutral throughout the frantic brawl (and let Takeru’s little sister and Keiko join them). “What is your next plan, Master?” Sao asked.

“What if we follow Yutaro and ask him more questions on… his feelings?” Galatea suggested. “Sao, provide escape route.”

“Yes, Master.”

Sao transformed into an Oxtongue Rifle and was caught by Galatea who, then, fired an energy beam onto the wall. She holstered the weapon over shoulder and sported a grin. “So, who wants to follow me?”

The escapees landed on the lakeside. Yutaro fell onto his butt as the Gemini Sisters let go off him. Freya and Aura landed on a piece of boulder and sat on it. They were still in their dragon-girl form, and Yutaro could not help asking himself if this was the reason their family objected their relationship.

“That was so close…” he gasped. “Thank god father isn’t here…”

The twin sisters suddenly blushed. “Father?”

Yutaro laughed. “No, no! I mean I was fortunate my father isn’t here, or he’d kill me,” he answered. “That reminds me. If that meeting can be thought as a reunion, then why aren’t you happy to see your parents?”

“Sou…” Freya threw their sight into the evening sky, as she returned to her normal form. Suddenly, and mysteriously, a Japanese classical song played in the background, and cherry blossom petals materialized in thin air. “We cherish our freedom, and we want to enjoy our life as much as we can. Papa has been strict at deciding our path of life, and he doesn’t believe in one’s freedom.”

“Freya…”

Aura took her twin sister’s hand. “This is the path we have agreed to take since we joined the School,” she spoke. “If Papa doesn’t agree with us, then we’ll fight for it. Even though our life is at stake.”

The sky suddenly trembled. Yutaro looked up and saw a giant wyvern soaring above them. “I get a bad feeling about this…”

“Papa!” the Gemini Sisters gasped.

Mr. Von Dietrich jumped off the wyvern and landed in front of Yutaro. “Finally found you, maggot…” he spoke and withdrew the Zweihander. “Took me a long time to outsmart the gunslinger knight, but I finally got away.”

“We thought Okaasan is unbeaten!” the Gemini Sisters protested.

By now, Frieda, Takeru, the Knights of Yellow Rose, Reiher, Galatea, Sao, Mrs. Von Dietrich and everybody else arrived. They had ended the brawl without losses on both sides, but found themselves too late to stop Mr. Von Dietrich’s execution.

“He’s one tough opponent, I must admit,” Frieda spoke.

“Dear! Can you ever stop for a while and spare the boy?” Mrs. Von Dietrich asked.

Mr. Von Dietrich seemed to ignore his wife’s advice and was equipping the Zweihander with cartridges. “I hope you have prepared your last will, maggot,” he spoke. “Do you have anything to say before I send you to the afterlife?”

“Can we… have a negotiation for a while?” Yutaro suggested.

“Stay still. I’m going to cut you into pieces…” Mr. Von Dietrich spoke, his eyes shooting blood.

“Dear!” Mrs. Von Dietrich shouted.

“Papa!” Aura cried out.

“Yutaro!” Freya screamed.

Yutaro was desperate. He needed to do something. He knew he was not at fault. He knew he had to make things clear.

And Mr. Von Dietrich had lifted the Zweihander high over his head.

There’s only one final option.

“Father-in-law!”

Yutaro knelt before the Kaiser and slammed the rock-hard ground with his bare palms. “Please give your daughter to me!”

Freya was startled. Aura gasped. Galatea batted an impressed eyebrow. Mrs. Von Dietrich smiled. Matilda clapped her hands. Keiko sighed in relief. Takeru nodded. Frieda chuckled. Poseidon tossed a victorious fist.

“If you want the secret to be safe, then let me become a part of your family!” Yutaro added and bowed to Mr. Von Dietrich. “So… so… SO PLEASE BLESS OUR MARRIAGE, FATHER-IN-LAW!”

“You… you…” Mr. Von Dietrich dropped the Zweihander, grabbed Yutaro’s collar and threw him into the lake. “JUST GO TO HELL AND DIE!!!!”

“I thought this is the best option!” Yutaro yelled as he fell into the lake.

“Yutaro!” Freya transformed into dragon-girl and jumped into the lake to save him.

Galatea wrote down something in the notepad. “Wakamoto Yutaro. Today, he declared he would accept Mrs. Von Dietrich’s offer and became a member of the clan. This automatically earns him the right to marry Freya and become her groom.”

She smiled. “This is relevant to my interest.”

This turns out be a quite interesting soap drama. :heh: :heh: and I can already imagine the real Yutaro's attempt to dry Freya's legs. :uhoh:


It's SnH All Over Again! Not that that's a bad thing :heh::D

But... Takeru actually appears!!!! :heh: And with Frieda too? :D MOST AWESOME :D

TEARS OF THE NORTHERN WIND
CHAPTER 4, part 1

// 2nd November, MC0072. Kiev, Ukraine //

The hunt had begun.

The Riot Force 6 and the 21st Unit were exploring every inch of the capital city for clues of the Gale Whistler. The Phantom Squad and the 82nd Division also joined force, as well as the Linebackers. It was a race that would pit them against time and the unforgiving reality of the world.

“Did you find anything?”

Nanoha shook her head. “It’s still early. I can’t say anything about it.”

The Ace quartet continued their search around the boulevard. “Don’t you think it’s weird, Nanoha-chan?” Hayate asked as she picked up a piece of metal debris. “A Lost Logia belonged to a king, a boy said to be a Chronomancer, and a lost civilization serving as a planet’s protector? This is far more complicated than the Relics' case.”

“I’m more curious of this place,” Keroko said and looked around. “Did anyone of us realize this city had used to be a battlefield?”

“[We’ll search this city first. If there’s no trace of the Gale Whistler, then we’ll proceed to another location.]” The Aces did not answer the transmission. “[Ladies? What’s the matter?]”

“Someone’s visiting the grave. We’ll speak to you later.” Nanoha approached the lone person the four women saw, who was at the time putting a flower bouquet on the tombstone. “Excuse me.”

Now THAT's an aria :heh::D

Thanks. Although I can't really take any credit for the arias aren't totally original. I took bits and pieces from here and there and hammered them into a whole.

Nothing too impossible. Templars' abilities to disrupt Elements in the body can be severe pain. If they choose to use it, that is. Then again, Barrier Jackets and platings impede them from doing so in the first place.
I guess the phrase "put to sleep" was taken literally. >.>


No, Sharazad doesn't cause drowning by saturating the air with water. What the saturation does is make it more difficult to breathe (by displacing oxygen with water molecules) and raising the humidity of the area until it's stuffy, which cause the victims to suffocate and faint ("sleep" :uhoh:). Of course, she always does this only in confined spaces, such as in offices and laboratories, which is why it's impossible to do it outdoors.

This should be more reasonable, no? :uhoh:

... She's going to affect your body system by drawing Elements through the skin. Well, many things can happen, such as the blood boiling, body shriveling, etc.
Just a thought, as it seems like Sharazad is going to be heavily out gunned by Hayate, why not gain the advantage of terrain? Get Sharazad to grab on onto Hayate and force her to drop into the ocean with intense pain via elemental disruption. Once in the water, Sharazad would have the advantage. Of course, getting into touch range is going to be a problem... How about fog or erupting geysers from below? :)
I assumed while writing this first part that everybody's available after StrikerS, unless they have other plans. :uhoh: :uhoh:Well, Tais is available if you want him although he's not going to be useful much except for humor. Please return him back to me after 4 months, for my Clio story.

:heh::heh:


Yeah. And I seriously don't want him to get more powerful anymore. Pretty much as it is, I'll use the GuardianS transition of events and just give him the prototype H.A.V.A. Type X-555 Heavy Assault device. Nowhere near as HAXX as the original design for Tyrfing. I'll call that device 'Orphenoch'.:D

Good name. :D


If only she had more of Nanoha's 'friendship thru superior firepower' mentality...
-_-

She would have tons of friends then. :heh:

And always count on you to escalate things farther... =_=;
No such thing for YOU, that is.:mad:

And fall for ME?! XD Incredible crack! XD XD XD

More like falling for the OC I'm planning.:D

:hmm: :D:D:D


BTW, I see that the relationship thread has become an annoying place again, huh?:rolleyes:

Ignorance is Heaven. For some it's their delusion of Hell that is. :rolleyes:

Some love? More than enough I assure you. No other CC has such support here and it's enough to form the Hayate Defense Club. :heh::D

As nice that picture is, it lacks one very important thing:

Delicious Asuka/Rei

GAiNAX likes to whore out Shinji/Kaworu and Rei/Asuka because it's the only two things they can whore out without the entire fandom jumping on them, even though they do it anyway.

Even someone like Shinji has his time with pairings. :heh:

AsukaxRei though? :eyespin::eyespin:


Fun fact: GAiNAX is doing the manga for the Shinji Ikari Raising Project, which is pretty much Shinji/Rei fluff. Anno's new studio is doing the manga of Angelic Days, which is Shinji/Asuka.

Geeze Anno how subtle can you get? (Another fact: Asuka's his favorite character :rolleyes: )

Fact learned. Though Rei seems to be mighty popular among the local fanbase, as a supposedly Japanese girl. :heh:

Ahhh but remember because of her weaken state that spell almost knocked her out and it probably did drain quite a lot of her remaining reserves.

And when I said 100% lightning I meant to use a spell that is purely lightning in nature without any incantations, which the more I look at it is probably not very likely.

Must have forgotten about the 100% part. :heh:


A familiar was never meant to be more powerful than the master. Because one, if the master were a cruel person that familiar might rebel, and actually win. Two, the familiar would probably need a lot more mana upkeep from the master, and if the master were actually the weaker one it would be extremely taxing. There are probably other reasons, but this is what I can think of for the moment.

Just that Arf eventually became the one who would need protection in a firefight. :heh::heh:


Right, let Gen do things the messy way and destroy the whole bunch of them. I'll send Itsuki after the false shepherd. :heh:

Give him some better protection before you do. He might come back a changed man. :uhoh:

If it's true love, then yes he is.

But he's banking on the possibility that it's just two older people who're tired of not having someone to *cuddle* with at night.

Either way, please work it into the scenario.

If he's wrong, just have someone blast him thru a wall... that tends to work pretty well.

I’m not acutally going to start with a wedding. :heh: The piece I'm working on will be about how they came to start dating to start with, albeit told via flashbacks some indeterminate time into the future if it goes anywhere or not I don't know, but the urge to write something about this has totally taken hold. :uhoh:


Well, here's Ivanovich's spell list, finally done:


Compared to other mages, Ivanovich's spell list is quite short, with his biggest spell being roughly equivalent to Divine Buster. As Harvest takes the form of a rifle, almost all of Ivanovich's spells are ranged attacks. Unlike Nanoha, however, he focuses on highly accurate, tightly targeted attacks - very similar to Vice. Unlike Nanoha or Fate, Ivanovich uses 12-cartridge magazines for Harvest, and carries many spare mags with him.

Attack Spells:
Variable Shot: Ivanovich uses the power of two cartridges to form a barrier around a magical bullet, allowing it to penetrate Gadget Drone AMF. Harvest is capable of focusing and forming the barrier and bullet without operator input. (AA-rank, 2 cartridges)

Heatseeker Twins: Ivanovich fires a pair of heatseeking shots that home in on their target. This attack launches magical projectiles with attack power of B, AA speed and A+ homing ability. (AA-rank, 2 cartridges)

Blaze Cannon: Copying one of the standard spells used by Enforcers, Ivanovich uses this fire-based spell in like manner to a flamethrower, producing a jet of fire that shoots out forward. By adjusting the input power, he can control the strength, intensity, and range of the stream. (B to AA-rank; uses no cartridges at B, 1 cartridge at A, 2 at AA. Strength adjustible.)

Barrett Shot: Ivanovich's version of Barrett Shot is almost identical to the standard version in use, except that Harvest fires 3 shots per cartridge instead of 4, giving a slight increase in power to each shot while reducing the volume of fire by 25%. Once Barrett Shot is active, all Ivanovich needs to do is to pull the trigger, until he runs out of cartridges.

Autumn Pillar: Ivanovich's answer to bombardment spells. This spell manages to hit AAA rank using 4 cartridges and fires a concentrated beam at the target. The beam is of comparable power to Divine Buster Extension, but with a smaller "caliber", and concentrates magical energy into penetration power and range. (AAA-rank, 4 cartridges. Similar power to A's Divine Buster Extension, but with more range and lesser kinetic impact.)

Shock Bolter: Modified from Franz's Blitz Bolter, Ivanovich uses this spell in hand to hand combat. It is essentially the same spell, sans lightning element.

Defensive Spells:
Barrier Jacket: Standard OFM Assault Platoon Barrier Jacket, resembling ODST armor.

Protection: Standard Barrier-type spell.

Round Shield: Standard Shield-type spell.

Jacket Purge: Following the principles of Reactive Armor, Ivanovich can detonate the outer layers of his Barrier Jacket as a defence, revealing the battledress fatigues he wears below.

Other Spells:
Flier Fin: Like Nanoha's original Flier Fin, but with less manuverability. If Nanaha's manuverability is that of a RAH-66 Comanche, Ivanovich's manuverability is like a CH-46 Sea Knight.

Chain Bind: As with Yuuno's version.

Flash Move: Speeds up Ivanovich, typically used in dodging or to tackle escaping targets.
Not bad pretty conventional all told, but that fits his profile I think Johnson wouldn't really be one for too much flash and theatrics I think he'd just want to get the job done.


Copy, we have you on strobe! Hang in there!The crack writing operation is proceeding smoothly expect completion within approximately 24 hours!


Army Strong, eh? Just curious: Why Army and not Marines? They have a larger Military Police Corp and an ROTC program at several colleges near my home (the nearest navy ROTC is several states away) state colleges are significantly cheaper for residents so my parents would really prefer I go to a state school, they wouldn’t force me, but the army is fine for me so I’ll probably do so.

Quite. Price's execution of Al-Asad took me by surprise, even though it would be what an SAS operative would do.I had a feeling when I saw him tied to the chair he wasn't leaving that room alive.


One might say that if you don't want to kill, you shouldn't join the Army. So, what's your planned MOS? Infantry? Armor? Special Forces?
I don't see how anyone can't consider the fact they might need to kill people when they joint the army, but some clearly don't think it through very throughly and then whine when it comes time to do the dirty work. :rolleyes: Anyway obviously from the above comment I want to be an MP I'm too big for Armor (6' 4" I'd be bonking my head all over the place:p:heh:), but maybe I can get into one of those neat little armored cars they've been getting. :D

That might be what Nanoha is all about: cool fights...
And even hear StrikerS is barely passable.
I was basically thinking the same thing. I'm pretty sure the TSAB looks down on mages throwing around powerful spells wily-nily in population centers. It's then a race between time for the ground team to evade her and her Wide Area Search while setting up their ambush, while dealing with the Forwards, all at the same time. Well when trying to enforce civil order bombing schools, clinics, churches etc to get at a few guys inside is usually a poor tactic…


Well....Signum...in a kimono....or a white gi... standing under a waterfall.... :uhoh:It is a classic warrior pose... :uhoh:

:twitch::twitch::twitch:

This is going to be a problem...

Leonidas vs. O'Niel for Lindy's hand in marriage? :uhoh::uhoh::uhoh: Not really I see it going something like this…

iORmi46dowo
Never bring a sword (or spear) to a gunfight. (yes I know you meant the OCs, no I don't care:p)

T
Actually, Lindy does have another lover, though she doesn't acknowledge him.

He's ...

Leonidas von Khrull.

*runs*Of course she dosen't acknowledge him since she already has a boyfriend. :p

Nothing too impossible. Templars' abilities to disrupt Elements in the body can be severe pain. If they choose to use it, that is. Then again, Barrier Jackets and platings impede them from doing so in the first place.Not attempting to use an advantage like this is just so incredibly lame...


Actually, I think Hayate's ability for friendship comes from her kind heart, which is good. It tones down a lot on the "magic damage" part. :pIt's only good from the stand point of her enemies which makes it rather bad for HER.


I guess the phrase "put to sleep" was taken literally. >.>

No, Sharazad doesn't cause drowning by saturating the air with water. What the saturation does is make it more difficult to breathe (by displacing oxygen with water molecules) and raising the humidity of the area until it's stuffy, which cause the victims to suffocate and faint ("sleep" :uhoh:). Of course, she always does this only in confined spaces, such as in offices and laboratories, which is why it's impossible to do it outdoors.

This should be more reasonable, no? :uhoh:
Not really the amount of water vapor that be suspended in a gas mixture is dependent pretty much entire on temperature. If you reach that saturation point any further water vapor will begin to condense as a liquid, and at temperatures humans can survive at that this threshold is FAR to low to allow for "drowning in air" This is just an intrinsic property of water and physics once that saturation point is reached further water added to the air will mix will simply condense out.


Another problem is that water vapor is LIGHTER then air (which includes a number of heavier molecules) and so will in the lack of outside forces simply tend to float away and up into the sky, this is why we get clouds and rain the water rises it cools down, the saturation point drops and it falls out of the air as rain.

Being indoors would have little to do with anything it might slightly effect the temperatures variable (maybe significantly if climate control is in use), but that could HURT the process inside of an air conditioned building for instance the cooler temperature would reduce the condensation point allowing less water to be in the air mix. They're wouldn't be any kind of "Containment effect" on the vapor either before you argue that first off 99% of buildings are poorly sealed at best obviously since we kind of need some air flow to survive inside them so the vapor still has plenty of places to go and even in a sealed room the water would still begin condescending out and jsut forming puddles now over the course of some long period of you might still be able to drown someone in a sealed room this way, but that would occur by said room eventually filling with standing water and doing the job the old fashion way, not by choking them with water vapor.

*all four Templars move to one corner and cry*
Well you've got this killer special move and you don't even try to use it?! Come on how weak is that what are you all pussies?! :mad:

Well, there is this possibility, no doubt. I guess the only thing that will make Hayate not do so will be the plot.:pWhich I'm sorry, but I consider piss poor writing anytime a writer resorts to "he didn't use this super power to utterly crush his enemy because I, the author, command it so" just pisses me off. This goes beyond a mere contrivance or act of plot into just insulting my and the character intelligence.


We'll have a read on this later. Giggles and eyerolls aside, there is a crack at the very end. :pNot quite sure what you mean by this honestly.

Only that I'm not changing her. :D
She's not going to make a very good general if she keep holding back and not wanting to kill people. :rolleyes:


Because of the need for balance. >.>

If she could just control any form of liquid, she might as well dump arsenic/mercury/lead into the water supply, which will surely kill more than normal water does. Or she could just shoot bullets of concentrated acid. :uhoh:IE she might be somewhat useful. :p


Since electricity is Templar-controllable, that makes a dual-element attack. :p

*senses Dark Gods astride with HAXX-busters*I don't mind combo attacks within reason and a lightning/water combo is pretty bog standard the water is pretty much just a glorified wire of course with the electricity doing all the work though. :p

Cant wait to get my hands on Mass Effect. *drool*Indeed, but curses for the slow ass mail system in this country!


And Tk, new IS: Silver Video Retriever..? :uhoh:Na IS: Video Spam. :p I just got my hands on the full version of Fraps and I've been learning to play with video dub so I've gotten a little tube happy lately. :p

Can't a guy has some soft sides too? :(

*runs again*Sure, but when you spend all your time talking about sadistic ways to cause nervous breakdowns don't be shocked when people are surprised by you showing it. :p


She would have tons of friends then. :heh:

Plus they'd all be really strong, after all no weakenlings would survive the "befriending" process...


How did my name manage to find its way here? :heh:

Katrina:"Don't fool yourself. Your name appears there only because of me."

Omae.Damare. :rolleyes:

Faust von Herrschaft >>>>> KatrinaHitting her for telling the truth seems sort of harsh. :p


Simple. Motivation. He wants his OCs to have a history he can proudly recall. And it's probably a lot of fun for him as well. :nod: :)

Plus he's a bit older then many here so might not be juggling as much stuff, but that's total speculation, but I've found that the older the author the more consistent the updating tends to be. *shrugs* College students in particularly tend to be terrible about regular updating me most certainly not excluded.

Some love? More than enough I assure you. No other CC has such support here and it's enough to form the Hayate Defense Club. :heh::DShe has pretty much become the OC threads Canon mascot it seems... :heh:


AsukaxRei though? :eyespin::eyespin:
"And then a plot contrivance happens!" in this case a wizard may also be required and involved.


Fact learned. Though Rei seems to be mighty popular among the local fanbase, as a supposedly Japanese girl. :heh:A dotting submissive specie of wood any man with the slightest spine could probably push around at will. :rolleyes: No I don't like Rei much at all... wonder girl indeed.


And some implications at this point if they ever get together..

Lindy= God's wife? :eyespin:

Chrono Halaown = Chrono O'Neil? :eyespin::eyespin:

Chrono = Son of God = Shinji? :eyespin::eyespin::eyespin:

*Senses massive dread wave behind him*

:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

*runs to the ends of the universe* The idea of O’Neil as Chrono’s step father is indeed to me at least absolutely hilarious.

O’Neil: How’s it going kiddo?
Chrono: I’ve told you to stop calling me that. -_-
O’Neil: Is that any way to talk to your father?
Chrono: You’re not my father.
O’Neil: *feigns shock and emotional injury.*
Chrono: What the hell dose she see in you anyway…?
O’Neil: If it’s any consolation I can’t figure out what your wife sees in you either.

Besides, Lindy deserves some loving after all that time alone and destitute you know :nod:Love for everyone! XD

My friend, that is one of many of the OC's mind-altering powers :nod:Just don't let the word out or the man will come ban our delicious crack! :mad:



Lindy maybe a Goddess in our eyes, but she's still human :heh:

Hurried and rushed backlog scrambling, internet at home is fried. Litteraly.

I bet it's just screaming "pleeease killlllll meeee!!!" when you boot up COD:4. :p

As a matter of fact, it actually shut down on me after trying to play it for an hour. :heh:

Fortunately, I brought out his brother, who has twice the memory. Finished it last night. :nod:

Yeah COD4 had a bit of a downer ending. :( the Ep did indeed do a bit to lighten it.

I liked it. The moment that gun was shoved to me I had this huge grin on my face as I pulled the trigger.

That’ll give heart burn a whole new meaning and let me tell you it sucks, some of the pills I took when I was younger would disagree with me terribly and I’d just be laid out for hours clutching my stomach as it felt like somewhat was burning out of my gut with a blowtorch.

I'm fortunate to say that I have no experience in the matter.

LOL I was even going to mention she stuck me as more tomboyish, but see to me an onee-sama and tomboy are kinda opposed archetypes as the onee-sama is supposed to be elegant and proper and stuff while a tomboy well… isn’t.:uhoh::heh:

It is? I thought that was the general term for it... Didn't Signum get called 'onee-sama' in certain fandom circles?

I never really liked it anyway it was either way to hot close to it or too cool further away I'd have just cracked the heat, the only thing it was good for was toasting marshmallows, and no I don't have a romantic bone in my body. :p

I always find a crackling fire to be soothing. Nice place to do calm things like posting here, too bad we have none at home.

That house also had heaters that where like mini-furnaces in various rooms IE they had an real honest to god fire going on inside them when they were on, and those things lighting up with a big "fmmmoph!" in the middle of the night always made me distinctly uncomfortable. :uhoh::p

I'm not, but then I'm used to such unexpected sounds.

She'd be more like ane-san or anego then :heh:

Is that the term? Allright then.

Phanan: That's Dr. Phanan. Fully licensed to cut you open and weld you shut again.

Btw I thought he died and Face incinerated his body with a Tie interceptor?

In StarWarsverse, yes.

"Mariel-san, you handle the reinforcements of his mechanical frames. Anesthetic officer, handle the drip at 16... no, 10, and adjust according the the mechanical adjustment rates. Stabilize the adrelanine flows, and do not let overcharge of electricity bypass... This is the sensitive part..."

Following reformation of large safenus vena, to prepare for grafting on the coronary arteries, and adjust the heart-lung machine at on-off, per the surgeon's movement...

This was something extremely impossible. A tri-linked surgery on the mechanical aspects, magical and physical... A surgeon, mage-doctor and engineer together in the operating theater... It had broken all regulations of official medicine, especially since... a nurse, Astra was assigned to handle the grafting, a nurse... a nurse... holding a knife. In the worst case scenario, his license as a nurse would be permanently revoked.

But human life was at stake. The medical team faced the possibilities of trial... But this team is one... one to save life. That is why...

Astra said it. The forbidden word.

"Beaver knife."

And thus we discover why Phanan usually doesn't like visiting doctors other then himself.

I JUST CAN'T DO IT @_@ !!!! Blue-cheese I can take, epic-cheese is fine, sweet-cheese is the stuff I live on,

BUT CHEESY cliche lines like that would drive me insane!

Oh, now I really want you to write them. :D

So... they could use a boost...

*shrug* well, yeah.

Tesla-nee?:twitch::twitch::twitch:

:heh: Really now, is it that unexpected? Tesla is a strong yet kind and helpull girl. Having her brains, many people would want her help with various things. Her tomboyish additude may give an atraction factor. Instead of boys wanting to protect her, the girls want to be protected by her.

I’m not acutally going to start with a wedding. :heh: The piece I'm working on will be about how they came to start dating to start with, albeit told via flashbacks some indeterminate time into the future if it goes anywhere or not I don't know, but the urge to write something about this has totally taken hold. :uhoh:

One of the things that suddenly pops up and you just have to do it. :D


And even hear StrikerS is barely passable.

Just SignumFate battle in the desert leaves most of the fights in StrikerS cold. :rolleyes:


Not really I see it going something like this…

iORmi46dowo
Never bring a sword (or spear) to a gunfight. (yes I know you meant the OCs, no I don't care:p)

Rofl. :D


The fluoride I've inserted into all you guys water supplies is making you more vulnerable to my hax busting messages of course... :p

Fluoride doesn't cut it. Dump your own brand of crack in for best effect. :p


Hey let's not get too mean Amy is pretty hot IMO I wouldn't complain about having her as a wife myself.:p

Not at all. Just that the two really didn't show that much chemistry beyond the teasing onee-san and embarrassed-serious imoto feeling to develop that far along and I'm taking a poke at the more tender moments they have. :p


:eyebrow:

Taken from a parody of Vader's lines where certain choice words were replaced with "pants". :D

"I have your pants."

"You lack the pants."

"You have no pants."

Ok I made up the last one. Maybe the 2nd as well. :p


Sure, but when you spend all your time talking about sadistic ways to cause nervous breakdowns don't be shocked when people are surprised by you showing it. :p

*scratches side of forehead*:heh:

Undeniable. Guilty as charged. :p

But hey, I'm sure everyone has their soft spots. Doesn't make me any weirder because of what I see as interesting. :mad:


Plus they'd all be really strong, after all no weakenlings would survive the "befriending" process...

Thus far her befriending all failed. Defense Programs and drones aren't very good friends to have. :heh::p


Hitting her for telling the truth seems sort of harsh. :p

No no I would never do that!:twitch: Just enough to restrain her thats all. :p:uhoh:


Plus he's a bit older then many here so might not be juggling as much stuff, but that's total speculation, but I've found that the older the author the more consistent the updating tends to be. *shrugs* College students in particularly tend to be terrible about regular updating me most certainly not excluded.

Which I keep forgetting he is. :heh:


She has pretty much become the OC threads Canon mascot it seems... :heh:

Mascot seems a bit high up. :heh:


"And then a plot contrivance happens!" in this case a wizard may also be required and involved.

:confused:


A dotting submissive specie of wood any man with the slightest spine could probably push around at will. :rolleyes: No I don't like Rei much at all... wonder girl indeed.

From the popularity polls, it seems just as likely they support Rei over Asuka simply because of ethnicity. :heh: The two each have their strong points of course. ;)


The idea of O’Neil as Chrono’s step father is indeed to me at least absolutely hilarious.

O’Neil: How’s it going kiddo?
Chrono: I’ve told you to stop calling me that. -_-
O’Neil: Is that any way to talk to your father?
Chrono: You’re not my father.
O’Neil: *feigns shock and emotional injury.*
Chrono: What the hell dose she see in you anyway…?
O’Neil: If it’s any consolation I can’t figure out what your wife sees in you either.
Chrono: …
:p

How about the rest of the family? Daughter? Daughter-in-law? Grandchildren? :D:D:D


Protagonist Decay. :p:uhoh:

Shafted. :p


Shit like this just makes me want to beat the Japanese with baseball bats, those A-bombs must have really fucked them up in the head.:uhoh:

You get things of opposites in equal lengths. *shrugs*



Rei is actually the most popular Eva girl of all of them, if the rather massive number of fans and merchandise on her is any indication :heh:

:nod:

The Air Freshener works better than expected :nod:

Nah. I just had to throw the last line in for laughs. :p


Unfortunately, Aaron is immune to that image you described :heh:

And THIS image of Hayate isn't fanservice, it's BADASS :D

Immunity? Whats that? Is it delicious? :D

YES. One of the few artwork that accurately portrays Hayate right down to her device as well as making her look super badass. :cool:

I HAVE THE POOOOWWWEEERRRR!!!!

NUUUUUU Not you too! :upset::eyespin:

Can't dispute this. :D:heh:

Hurried and rushed backlog scrambling, internet at home is fried. Litteraly.

Sounds mighty serious. :twitch:


I liked it. The moment that gun was shoved to me I had this huge grin on my face as I pulled the trigger.

I suddenly feel very tame in what I enjoy. :uhoh:


It is? I thought that was the general term for it... Didn't Signum get called 'onee-sama' in certain fandom circles?

Entrophy Max iirc. Those are pretty good along with awesome artwork as well. :D


:heh: Really now, is it that unexpected? Tesla is a strong yet kind and helpull girl. Having her brains, many people would want her help with various things. Her tomboyish additude may give an atraction factor. Instead of boys wanting to protect her, the girls want to be protected by her.

It's probably the other side of her wasn't that obvious that people think it unexpected. Much like someone else here that has an un-obvious side. :D

Good work!

Thanks.:D

The cases you've listed are of creators interacting with their OWN CREATIONS. This is a case of a Creator-san interacting with a Canon Character.

VERY different dynamic for me - people are allowed to screw with their own creations as much as they want, but if they cross the line into messing with others' things...

Thing is, I'm not screwing around with Hayate!:mad:

"DON'T MAKE MY PURE-INTENTIONED SYMPATHETIC ACTION LOOK LIKE A FIRST STEP TO TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HER!!!"


But it sounded so first person :D

Secret desires?

First person because it was me she's talking to.:p

Grissom: "You can always say stop..."

The question is would you stop if I told you to?:eyebrow:

*Lurks in the background in a Gendo pose.* "The Scenario is proceeding as predicted..."

Let's just say I want more Real-type to Super-type now.:p

Yep most likely it just looks a few shades darker.

:nod: And also heavier if the fabric is absorbent.

No need more Chibis! :frustrated::p

So you really do want more chibis after all...:heh:
Well, I'm not really planning one...:heh:

*See protective fanboy mob lurking behind Aaron* I'd start running buddy.:uhoh:

Like hell. I'm their head.:p

<gets mauled>

I don't know any mage that couldn't blast a little ice of his limbs would have to be pretty weak. =/

How about lotsa thick ice?:heh:

*ponders using the Barrier Jacket system to poof up tons of designer hats to sell for huge profits*

Ooh. Promising.:D

Not really since I've been rather sure you've been obsessed with and wanted herfrom the start, this sort of creepy breakdown of what you find attractive about her has merely reinforced that. :p

Creepy?:p Well, you could say that.:p

The captured princess angle then eh? :p

Yep.:D I'll then do my own brand of fanservice that utilizes only minimal explicit undertones and relies more on the interactions.:D

Stand by for: INTENSE SWORD FIGHTING ACTION!:mad::p

Neck and neck, it'll be!:D
Actually, not too much. Signum is stronger than Grandis when she's in Unison. But I'll have him manage to defeat her and knock out + nab Hayate later.:D

A well done one on one Duels is cool, they're stupid, but they are cool you can't deny that. :p

:nod:
Though I'd like to do more team tactics when I get to the Hayate's week as a Damsel in Distress arc.:D

Getting ready to take advantage of her emotional fragility if I don't miss my guess.



A medical instrument. Also called sickle knife... if I'm not wrong.

KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!! WHERE ARE YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!????????

Where indeed?:(

:nod: :nod: :nod:

As expected of our resident Hayate-con.

H-Hayate-con?:twitch::twitch::twitch:

Now where have I seen this before... :uhoh:

Like Chaos said, this is the part where the girl falls for the guy even when he doesn't feel anything.... :uhoh:

Hayate pulling a DC II Nanaka? :eyespin::eyespin::eyespin:

Or... *Aurion drinks youth potion*

*aftermath*

Aurion: Nah, I don't think I'll try that again. It was an unnerving experience. :heh:
Hayate: I think I was a little bit longing for...
Aurion: For who? :)
Hayate: For Hell’s Inquisitor. :p
Aurion: Eh? :twitch:
Hayate: But I can't see him anymore... So, that love has ended. :)

:eyespin::eyespin::eyespin:

To tell you the truth, I already have a few crack scenarios of that scenario in my head...:heh:

Nahh we have you to do the character development part, but not the hawt rabu-rabu and "iiiiiyaaaaaaaaa" moments. :heh:

I'm finding it hard to put a scenario which makes Hayate go 'Iyaaaaaa~!':heh:

Dakara, I sai-:thinker:

IDEA!:D:D:D

:eek:! You're cutting down on the h4xx...? What's up with you all of a sudden? :p

I realized what I really wanted.:) I don't need any more power-ups than what is present. In fact, I'll scrap some of them and just add Aurion's stronger manipulation ability (w/ glowing eyes like in the GuardianS: From the Edge chapter) and Orphenoch.:D Tyrfing'll get a major overhaul and be slated for Grandis later.

What's wrong is that those hands that initially start patting the top of her head tend to go down...

...:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

To her back when she starts crying?:rolleyes::p

Aaron is starting to snap... *hides*

:nod:

Actually, Lindy does have another lover, though she doesn't acknowledge him.

He's ...

Leonidas von Khrull.

*runs*

:twitch::twitch::twitch::twitch::twitch::twitch:

Ah, that reminds me. :D

I remember the first, but where does the second come from? :confused:

Shamal was the one who cast this when she was saved from Chrono by the masked man (actually Aria). She invoked the Tome to unleasha HUEG lightning strike.:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Nothing too impossible. Templars' abilities to disrupt Elements in the body can be severe pain. If they choose to use it, that is. Then again, Barrier Jackets and platings impede them from doing so in the first place.

:nod:
But still, I'm prepared.:)

Actually, I think Hayate's ability for friendship comes from her kind heart, which is good. It tones down a lot on the "magic damage" part. :p

:nod:

*all four Templars move to one corner and cry*

And thus, Tk3997 defeats all of the main antagonists in GuarianS...:uhoh::uhoh::eyespin::heh:

Well, there is this possibility, no doubt. I guess the only thing that will make Hayate not do so will be the plot. :p

Softie...:heh:

Only that I'm not changing her. :D

Just improving her.;)


Well, here's Ivanovich's spell list, finally done:


Compared to other mages, Ivanovich's spell list is quite short, with his biggest spell being roughly equivalent to Divine Buster. As Harvest takes the form of a rifle, almost all of Ivanovich's spells are ranged attacks. Unlike Nanoha, however, he focuses on highly accurate, tightly targeted attacks - very similar to Vice. Unlike Nanoha or Fate, Ivanovich uses 12-cartridge magazines for Harvest, and carries many spare mags with him.

Attack Spells:
Variable Shot: Ivanovich uses the power of two cartridges to form a barrier around a magical bullet, allowing it to penetrate Gadget Drone AMF. Harvest is capable of focusing and forming the barrier and bullet without operator input. (AA-rank, 2 cartridges)

Heatseeker Twins: Ivanovich fires a pair of heatseeking shots that home in on their target. This attack launches magical projectiles with attack power of B, AA speed and A+ homing ability. (AA-rank, 2 cartridges)

Blaze Cannon: Copying one of the standard spells used by Enforcers, Ivanovich uses this fire-based spell in like manner to a flamethrower, producing a jet of fire that shoots out forward. By adjusting the input power, he can control the strength, intensity, and range of the stream. (B to AA-rank; uses no cartridges at B, 1 cartridge at A, 2 at AA. Strength adjustible.)

Barrett Shot: Ivanovich's version of Barrett Shot is almost identical to the standard version in use, except that Harvest fires 3 shots per cartridge instead of 4, giving a slight increase in power to each shot while reducing the volume of fire by 25%. Once Barrett Shot is active, all Ivanovich needs to do is to pull the trigger, until he runs out of cartridges.

Autumn Pillar: Ivanovich's answer to bombardment spells. This spell manages to hit AAA rank using 4 cartridges and fires a concentrated beam at the target. The beam is of comparable power to Divine Buster Extension, but with a smaller "caliber", and concentrates magical energy into penetration power and range. (AAA-rank, 4 cartridges. Similar power to A's Divine Buster Extension, but with more range and lesser kinetic impact.)

Shock Bolter: Modified from Franz's Blitz Bolter, Ivanovich uses this spell in hand to hand combat. It is essentially the same spell, sans lightning element.

Defensive Spells:
Barrier Jacket: Standard OFM Assault Platoon Barrier Jacket, resembling ODST armor.

Protection: Standard Barrier-type spell.

Round Shield: Standard Shield-type spell.

Jacket Purge: Following the principles of Reactive Armor, Ivanovich can detonate the outer layers of his Barrier Jacket as a defence, revealing the battledress fatigues he wears below.

Other Spells:
Flier Fin: Like Nanoha's original Flier Fin, but with less manuverability. If Nanaha's manuverability is that of a RAH-66 Comanche, Ivanovich's manuverability is like a CH-46 Sea Knight.

Chain Bind: As with Yuuno's version.

Flash Move: Speeds up Ivanovich, typically used in dodging or to tackle escaping targets.



Quick, concise an effective.:) Nice!:D

THE GEMINI SISTERS II
CHAPTER 4

He opened his eyes. “Oh, I’m back at the hall,” he murmured and looked around him. “But who are these people? And why they look like knights or something?” It took the street performer a few seconds before he realized the murderous glare of a scar-riddled knight and feigned unconsciousness “I didn’t see it… I didn’t see it… I didn’t see it…”

“Reiher! Give him CPR!”

One of the people appeared behind the armoured knight. “Yes, sir!”

The dark-skinned, Afro knight did what he was told. Matilda and female Belkan knights blushed at the yaoi-bait scene. Freya and Aura were appalled. Keiko had to turn away in embarrassment.

Yutaro snapped. He kicked the Afro knight out of the way. “What… what the hell was that for?!” he screamed, hoarsely gasping for air.

“Sir! It appears this boy is alright,” the Afro knight reported.

Yutaro had recovered from the frightening experience and sat on the floor. “What the hell is really going on?” he demanded. “Who are these people, anyway?”

“Brat! You don’t know who you’re dealing with!” one of the foreign knights snarled.

“You dare questioning the Von Dietrich Clan,” his friend added and withdrew a dagger. “Shall I cut your tongue into pieces?”

A woman coughed, and immediately the two hostile knights retreated to their spot. “My apology for the complicated matters we caused,” the woman spoke. “Pleased to meet you, Wakamoto Yutaro. I am Katrina von Dietrich, and this is my husband Kaiser Erick von Dietrich, Chairperson of the von Dietrich Clan.”

Yutaro turned to the said Chairperson. Mr. Von Dietrich immediately shot him a murderous sight. “Knight? He’s more like a Yakuza to me!” Yutaro gulped.

“And the man who performed the CPR to you just now is Reiher,” Mrs. Von Dietrich continued. “Don’t worry. He just wanted to save your life.”

“It is my honour,” Reiher spoke, his Ray-Ban mysteriously sparkled.

Matilda and female Belkan knights sighed. “Reiher-san…”

“Excuse me for interrupting,” Keiko spoke. “But why is the Von Dietrich Clan suddenly here? As far as I am concerned, the last time the Belkan Knights and the Von Dietrich ever came to contact was 225 years ago during the Miranda Confrontation.”

“That is correct,” Mrs. von Dietrich replied. “We’re here for family business, actually. It appeared one of our family members had faced a very serious incident.”

“We are the honoured dragon clan,” Mr. Von Dietrich spoke. “We are strictly forbidden from revealing our true form to regular people whatever the reasons we have to face.”

“Dragon clan? So you can transform into a dragon?” Matilda asked.

“Dragon?” Yutaro remembered the time he saw Freya’s unknown form. He twitched. “Crap! Does this mean…”

Mr. von Dietrich’s reply was to withdraw his Zweihander and aimed it at Yutaro’s neck. “This brat saw my cute Freya’s identity, and he is not supposed to see it! How dare he… how dare he do THIS and THAT to my cute Freya while I wasn’t around!”

“Kaiser Erick, please calm down!” Reiher pleaded and strangled Mr. von Dietrich.

“We fiercely protect this secret for generations from the lineage of our ancestor Daniel the Great,” Mrs. Von Dietrich spoke. “The law of Von Dietrich states that anyone from this family who exposes his or her true identity to the society will be sentenced to death. I am sure Miss Galatea has explained it to all of you.”

“It’s fortunate that the Knights of Yellow Rose had agreed to keep this matter secret from the public,” Galatea spoke. “Things would have turned to worse if the people get their hands on this incident.”

“I object! Freya did that to save Yutaro’s life! What would you do if you faced the same situation as her?” Poseidon snarled.

“Then Yutaro will have to be executed as well,” Mrs. Von Dietrich said. “The secret of the dragon clan cannot and shall not be revealed to the world whatever the consequences this family have to face.”

“No way…” Poseidon chided.

“I hate to agree, but this is the law we have to abide,” Mr. Von Dietrich continued and again turned to the frightened Yutaro. “But not before I slay the brat into pieces!” he roared and tried killing the boy before Reiher strangled him.

Mrs. Von Dietrich later grinned. “But of course, we can spare his life if he agrees to become a member of this house,” she said.

“What does that suppose to mean?” Matilda said.

Mrs. Von Dietrich pointed to the ceiling. “Yutaro will have to marry Freya.”

The suggestion sent a very deep shock into everybody in the hall. Yutaro, especially, found himself shaking uncontrollably due to the suggestion. “No freaking way!”

“Married? My cute Freya marries that useless piece of flesh?” Mr. Von Dietrich growled and plunged the Zweihander into the floor. “He must step over my dead body first! Nobody is allowed to marry my cute Freya until I say he can!”

“But dear, he already knew her identity,” Mrs. Von Dietrich spoke. “If he doesn’t want to die, then he has to become her groom.”

“Never! I’ll only say yes when I SAY yes!” Mr. Von Dietrich replied.

“Papa!”

Everybody turned to Freya. “If you refuse to bless our relationship,” she said and suddenly fell onto her back. “Then just execute me!”

“But Freya, you can’t live with that maggot!” Mr. Von Dietrich replied.

“This is my life! I’m the one who decides it! Not anyone! Not even Papa!” Freya replied.

“Oneechan is right!” along came Aura’s voice as she, too, lay next to Freya. “If she has to die, then let me die with her!”

Mrs. Von Dietrich sighed. “Look at that. Father and his twin daughters. Always refuse to accept each other’s difference,” she said.

Poseidon nodded. “They’re twins, after all.”

“Freya…” Yutaro murmured.

Mr. Von Dietrich trembled. “If that bastard wants to marry my cute Freya,” he murmured and pulled out the Zweihander, “then he must prepare to accept his death! My brethrens!”

The von Dietrich knights transformed into dragons. “ROAR!!!!”

Yutaro fled the people but was stopped in the middle of the way by a dagger tossed by Reiher. He turned to the Afro knight, and was horrified as the person sported a smile that was as calm as it was threatening. “I might not know your affair with Meister Freya, but you must accept the suggestion or face the consequences,” he spoke.

Matilda and female Belkan knights sighed. “Reiher-san…”

“I don’t have time to answer the question!” Yutaro took a detour but was ambushed by an oversized salt-water crocodile when he approached the door. “A crocodile!!!????”

“THANK YOU FOR THE MEAL!!!!” Draco Tsukihiro cheered and pounced at Yutaro, but its tackle missed when the boy dodged. “Shit. When I thought I could have my free meal right now…”

“How can a crocodile become a dragon clan member?!” Yutaro asked.

“Should I tell you the answer?” Draco Tsukihiro asked in sly voice and again pounced at Yutaro. “Do not run away! I will eat you piece by piece!”

Poseidon kicked Draco Tsukihiro to the wall with a roundhouse. “A beast’s worthy opponent is a beast,” the white tiger spoke and opened a kung-fu stance. “Yutaro, go. I’ll cover you.”

“I owe you one, Poseidon-san!”

Yutaro left Poseidon with the pissed Draco Tsukihiro and faced Mr. Von Dietrich. “Can we have a peaceful discussion?” he asked, and was forced to dodge the Zweihander when the Kaiser refused. “I thought this is a democratic government!!”

“Hold it right there.”

The mayhem stopped. Mr. Von Dietrich and his followers looked to the front and saw Frieda standing at the entrance door. “May I know what is going on, everybody?” she asked and corrected her eyeglasses.

“Okaasan!” Freya and Aura gasped.

“Miss Frieda, help!” Yutaro left the chaos and hurled towards Frieda. “You have to help me! These people are going to kill me!”

“I heard you’re going to marry Freya,” Frieda said. “Well, why hadn’t you told me of your feeling towards her before?”

“Why in a sudden you ask me that?!” Yutaro wailed and flailed his arms.

“Who the hell are you, bitch?!” one of the dragon-men snarled.

The Gunslinger Knight turned to the people. “I’m the Gemini Sisters’ custodian,” Frieda replied and withdrew Beowulf. “Frieda Johansen. I’m also their surrogate mother. Pleased to meet you.”

“Then we’ll have to kill you as well!” The dragon-men charged at the Gunslinger Knights when bullets suddenly knocked their swords off their hands. “What the hell is that?”

“Touch Miss Frieda and die,” along came Takeru’s voice as he appeared behind Frieda (clinging onto his back was a timid-looking Yumemi). He withdrew Schwarz Todd, loaded the dual handguns and opened a Gun Kata stance. “So, shall we dance?”

“I thought the Belkan Knights and the von Dietrich clan are at peace!” Matilda spoke as the von Dietrich knights and the Belkan knights fought each other.

“This has nothing to do with peace!” Mr. von Dietrich howled and swung the Zweihander at Yutaro’s head -- again, it missed. “This is family business!”

Mrs. Von Dietrich sighed. “Men…” She left her sitting spot and approached Frieda. “Ms. Johansen,” she said and bowed to her. “We must thank you for taking care of our twin daughters along our absence. We owe you a lot for your deeds.”

“It doesn’t matter,” Frieda said with a smile. “I have long considered them as my beloved daughters.” She later took off the eyeglasses and bowed to Mrs. Von Dietrich. “Now, if you excuse me.”

Frieda left the smiling mother behind and jumped at Mr. Von Dietrich who was blindingly attacking Yutaro. “Aura! Freya! Take Yutaro out of here!” she shouted as she blocked the Kaiser’s Zweihander.

“Got it, Okaasan!” the Gemini Sisters replied and seized Yutaro’s hand. “Yutaro, follow us!”

Galatea and Sao decided to stay neutral throughout the frantic brawl (and let Takeru’s little sister and Keiko join them). “What is your next plan, Master?” Sao asked.

“What if we follow Yutaro and ask him more questions on… his feelings?” Galatea suggested. “Sao, provide escape route.”

“Yes, Master.”

Sao transformed into an Oxtongue Rifle and was caught by Galatea who, then, fired an energy beam onto the wall. She holstered the weapon over shoulder and sported a grin. “So, who wants to follow me?”

The escapees landed on the lakeside. Yutaro fell onto his butt as the Gemini Sisters let go off him. Freya and Aura landed on a piece of boulder and sat on it. They were still in their dragon-girl form, and Yutaro could not help asking himself if this was the reason their family objected their relationship.

“That was so close…” he gasped. “Thank god father isn’t here…”

The twin sisters suddenly blushed. “Father?”

Yutaro laughed. “No, no! I mean I was fortunate my father isn’t here, or he’d kill me,” he answered. “That reminds me. If that meeting can be thought as a reunion, then why aren’t you happy to see your parents?”

“Sou…” Freya threw their sight into the evening sky, as she returned to her normal form. Suddenly, and mysteriously, a Japanese classical song played in the background, and cherry blossom petals materialized in thin air. “We cherish our freedom, and we want to enjoy our life as much as we can. Papa has been strict at deciding our path of life, and he doesn’t believe in one’s freedom.”

“Freya…”

Aura took her twin sister’s hand. “This is the path we have agreed to take since we joined the School,” she spoke. “If Papa doesn’t agree with us, then we’ll fight for it. Even though our life is at stake.”

The sky suddenly trembled. Yutaro looked up and saw a giant wyvern soaring above them. “I get a bad feeling about this…”

“Papa!” the Gemini Sisters gasped.

Mr. Von Dietrich jumped off the wyvern and landed in front of Yutaro. “Finally found you, maggot…” he spoke and withdrew the Zweihander. “Took me a long time to outsmart the gunslinger knight, but I finally got away.”

“We thought Okaasan is unbeaten!” the Gemini Sisters protested.

By now, Frieda, Takeru, the Knights of Yellow Rose, Reiher, Galatea, Sao, Mrs. Von Dietrich and everybody else arrived. They had ended the brawl without losses on both sides, but found themselves too late to stop Mr. Von Dietrich’s execution.

“He’s one tough opponent, I must admit,” Frieda spoke.

“Dear! Can you ever stop for a while and spare the boy?” Mrs. Von Dietrich asked.

Mr. Von Dietrich seemed to ignore his wife’s advice and was equipping the Zweihander with cartridges. “I hope you have prepared your last will, maggot,” he spoke. “Do you have anything to say before I send you to the afterlife?”

“Can we… have a negotiation for a while?” Yutaro suggested.

“Stay still. I’m going to cut you into pieces…” Mr. Von Dietrich spoke, his eyes shooting blood.

“Dear!” Mrs. Von Dietrich shouted.

“Papa!” Aura cried out.

“Yutaro!” Freya screamed.

Yutaro was desperate. He needed to do something. He knew he was not at fault. He knew he had to make things clear.

And Mr. Von Dietrich had lifted the Zweihander high over his head.

There’s only one final option.

“Father-in-law!”

Yutaro knelt before the Kaiser and slammed the rock-hard ground with his bare palms. “Please give your daughter to me!”

Freya was startled. Aura gasped. Galatea batted an impressed eyebrow. Mrs. Von Dietrich smiled. Matilda clapped her hands. Keiko sighed in relief. Takeru nodded. Frieda chuckled. Poseidon tossed a victorious fist.

“If you want the secret to be safe, then let me become a part of your family!” Yutaro added and bowed to Mr. Von Dietrich. “So… so… SO PLEASE BLESS OUR MARRIAGE, FATHER-IN-LAW!”

“You… you…” Mr. Von Dietrich dropped the Zweihander, grabbed Yutaro’s collar and threw him into the lake. “JUST GO TO HELL AND DIE!!!!”

“I thought this is the best option!” Yutaro yelled as he fell into the lake.

“Yutaro!” Freya transformed into dragon-girl and jumped into the lake to save him.

Galatea wrote down something in the notepad. “Wakamoto Yutaro. Today, he declared he would accept Mrs. Von Dietrich’s offer and became a member of the clan. This automatically earns him the right to marry Freya and become her groom.”

She smiled. “This is relevant to my interest.”

This turns out be a quite interesting soap drama. :heh: :heh: and I can already imagine the real Yutaro's attempt to dry Freya's legs. :uhoh:

TEARS OF THE NORTHERN WIND
CHAPTER 4, part 1

// 2nd November, MC0072. Kiev, Ukraine //

The hunt had begun.

The Riot Force 6 and the 21st Unit were exploring every inch of the capital city for clues of the Gale Whistler. The Phantom Squad and the 82nd Division also joined force, as well as the Linebackers. It was a race that would pit them against time and the unforgiving reality of the world.

“Did you find anything?”

Nanoha shook her head. “It’s still early. I can’t say anything about it.”

The Ace quartet continued their search around the boulevard. “Don’t you think it’s weird, Nanoha-chan?” Hayate asked as she picked up a piece of metal debris. “A Lost Logia belonged to a king, a boy said to be a Chronomancer, and a lost civilization serving as a planet’s protector? This is far more complicated than the Relics' case.”

“I’m more curious of this place,” Keroko said and looked around. “Did anyone of us realize this city had used to be a battlefield?”

“How can you tell?” Fate asked. “There has been no recorded battle on Earth for four years.”

The Aces continued searching. This time, they headed to the mausoleum, walking past people who paid them no attention. The chill began biting them; did the citizens deliberately ignore them?

“[Have you found any clues, Nanoha-san?]”

“We’re heading to the cemetery,” Nanoha responded to Yuuno’s radio call.

“[The cemetery? Hang on. We have latest information about the Gale Whistler’s girlfriend. I’ll let Armstrong-san explain.]”

“Girlfriend?”

“[This is Armstrong. The name of the girl is Yuu. She perished while protecting the Gale Whistler from his berserk sister. She was buried along with thousands of citizens who died in the Battles of Kiev.]”

“No wonder why there aren’t any visitors here,” Hayate spoke. “This place brings them painful memories.”

“[According to documents we recovered, the Gale Whistler had used his Chronograph power three times. The energy reading taken by our agents during the event showed it exceeded all expectations.]”

“Hold on! You can’t be this serious, Ojiichan. How can we be so sure he’s more powerful than anyone of us?”

“[Keroko, the boy is stronger than anybody else for one sole reason: his father was an Immortal. Added with his Chronograph circuit and his years of experience as a street combatant, he’s not to be taken lightly.]”

“Immortal… that doesn’t sound good, does it?”

“Where can we find him anyway, Ojiichan?”

“[We’ll search this city first. If there’s no trace of the Gale Whistler, then we’ll proceed to another location.]” The Aces did not answer the transmission. “[Ladies? What’s the matter?]”

“Someone’s visiting the grave. We’ll speak to you later.” Nanoha approached the lone person the four women saw, who was at the time putting a flower bouquet on the tombstone. “Excuse me.”

The person turned to Nanoha, revealing a pair of radiant sapphire eyes that had the sparks of acceptance. “Haii?”

Nanoha was startled. “You’re Japanese.”

The person nodded. “Haii.”

I assumed while writing this first part that everybody's available after StrikerS, unless they have other plans. :uhoh: :uhoh:

BTW, the person at the ending? That's Hikki's WAIFU. :uhoh:

Since I haven't watched Seto other than some clips, I'll be looking forward to more of this.:D Naisu!:D And BTW, The Aces meet Mai! @_@

Good name. :D

Thanks.:D

Which brings me to this..

Great pic!:nod::D:D:D
Hayate looks awesome here!:D:D:D

I’m not acutally going to start with a wedding. :heh: The piece I'm working on will be about how they came to start dating to start with, albeit told via flashbacks some indeterminate time into the future if it goes anywhere or not I don't know, but the urge to write something about this has totally taken hold. :uhoh:

Wiiiii~! Cracktastically promising!:D

And that 'Wii~' reminded me of Sakura the Unison Device...:(:(:(

It's only good from the stand point of her enemies which makes it rather bad for HER.

:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

She's not going to make a very good general if she keep holding back and not wanting to kill people. :rolleyes:

:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

She has pretty much become the OC threads Canon mascot it seems... :heh:

Righteously so!:D:D:D

The idea of O’Neil as Chrono’s step father is indeed to me at least absolutely hilarious.

O’Neil: How’s it going kiddo?
Chrono: I’ve told you to stop calling me that. -_-
O’Neil: Is that any way to talk to your father?
Chrono: You’re not my father.
O’Neil: *feigns shock and emotional injury.*
Chrono: What the hell dose she see in you anyway…?
O’Neil: If it’s any consolation I can’t figure out what your wife sees in you either.
Chrono: …
:p

WIN!!!:D:D:D

:heh: Really now, is it that unexpected? Tesla is a strong yet kind and helpull girl. Having her brains, many people would want her help with various things. Her tomboyish additude may give an atraction factor. Instead of boys wanting to protect her, the girls want to be protected by her.

I see your point...:heh::D



EDIT: The Hayate pic in the Fave Char thread is working again!:D

Yeah some of my friends are coming back from Australia, holidays and all (just like how Kha should be finished with exams and going back to Singapore soon). So I'm just planning a little get together since we don't really meet often (the whole lot of us got to know each other through a gaming server).

It would be a small world it I've met some of them..:heh: Where were they staying?

Well no matter, the ones I have currently under works are all non-Earthlings. Which reminds me I need to stop procrastinating and get some ideas on how to finish their profiles. :uhoh:

But procrastination is good..:uhoh:

Her music is good but her voice really isn't. If you heard her sing live you'll know. :heh:

I see... Although that's unlikey to happen as I don't think shes going to be having a tour to oz anytime soon...

Not sure, though I'm sure as a combat instructor Nanoha would have thought team tactics, like how she taught RF6's rookie forwards. It would make sense that she should at least know teamwork herself.

But we never see them doing anything of the sought... If anything its was Teana who was in charge of developing the teamwork, not Nanoha..

What's wrong is that those hands that initially start patting the top of her head tend to go down...

...:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

Indeed......:uhoh:
*runs*

Actually, Lindy does have another lover, though she doesn't acknowledge him.

He's ...

Leonidas von Khrull.

*runs*

Dare? :p

They already pass through the limit. :heh: Guess there's no helping it. :p

I'll have to get back on many stories in the weekends.

:heh: Oh well, it's not like the rest of us care :p
:nod:

Nothing too impossible. Templars' abilities to disrupt Elements in the body can be severe pain. If they choose to use it, that is. Then again, Barrier Jackets and platings impede them from doing so in the first place.

Use it!! USE IT!!

Because of the need for balance. >.>

If she could just control any form of liquid, she might as well dump arsenic/mercury/lead into the water supply, which will surely kill more than normal water does. Or she could just shoot bullets of concentrated acid. :uhoh:

Yep, that would indeed be better.
Well, here's Ivanovich's spell list, finally done:


Compared to other mages, Ivanovich's spell list is quite short, with his biggest spell being roughly equivalent to Divine Buster. As Harvest takes the form of a rifle, almost all of Ivanovich's spells are ranged attacks. Unlike Nanoha, however, he focuses on highly accurate, tightly targeted attacks - very similar to Vice. Unlike Nanoha or Fate, Ivanovich uses 12-cartridge magazines for Harvest, and carries many spare mags with him.

Attack Spells:
Variable Shot: Ivanovich uses the power of two cartridges to form a barrier around a magical bullet, allowing it to penetrate Gadget Drone AMF. Harvest is capable of focusing and forming the barrier and bullet without operator input. (AA-rank, 2 cartridges)

Heatseeker Twins: Ivanovich fires a pair of heatseeking shots that home in on their target. This attack launches magical projectiles with attack power of B, AA speed and A+ homing ability. (AA-rank, 2 cartridges)

Blaze Cannon: Copying one of the standard spells used by Enforcers, Ivanovich uses this fire-based spell in like manner to a flamethrower, producing a jet of fire that shoots out forward. By adjusting the input power, he can control the strength, intensity, and range of the stream. (B to AA-rank; uses no cartridges at B, 1 cartridge at A, 2 at AA. Strength adjustible.)

Barrett Shot: Ivanovich's version of Barrett Shot is almost identical to the standard version in use, except that Harvest fires 3 shots per cartridge instead of 4, giving a slight increase in power to each shot while reducing the volume of fire by 25%. Once Barrett Shot is active, all Ivanovich needs to do is to pull the trigger, until he runs out of cartridges.

Autumn Pillar: Ivanovich's answer to bombardment spells. This spell manages to hit AAA rank using 4 cartridges and fires a concentrated beam at the target. The beam is of comparable power to Divine Buster Extension, but with a smaller "caliber", and concentrates magical energy into penetration power and range. (AAA-rank, 4 cartridges. Similar power to A's Divine Buster Extension, but with more range and lesser kinetic impact.)

Shock Bolter: Modified from Franz's Blitz Bolter, Ivanovich uses this spell in hand to hand combat. It is essentially the same spell, sans lightning element.

Defensive Spells:
Barrier Jacket: Standard OFM Assault Platoon Barrier Jacket, resembling ODST armor.

Protection: Standard Barrier-type spell.

Round Shield: Standard Shield-type spell.

Jacket Purge: Following the principles of Reactive Armor, Ivanovich can detonate the outer layers of his Barrier Jacket as a defence, revealing the battledress fatigues he wears below.

Other Spells:
Flier Fin: Like Nanoha's original Flier Fin, but with less manuverability. If Nanaha's manuverability is that of a RAH-66 Comanche, Ivanovich's manuverability is like a CH-46 Sea Knight.

Chain Bind: As with Yuuno's version.

Flash Move: Speeds up Ivanovich, typically used in dodging or to tackle escaping targets.

Nice and straight to the point. Fits *thumbs up*

I was basically thinking the same thing. I'm pretty sure the TSAB looks down on mages throwing around powerful spells wily-nily in population centers. It's then a race between time for the ground team to evade her and her Wide Area Search while setting up their ambush, while dealing with the Forwards, all at the same time.

True... although from what we saw, the battles always seem to conveniently take place in non-populated areas so they don't have to worry about collateral damage.:rolleyes:


What's the message? :uhoh:

The Church has heard about your works and would like you to feature them in future. We'd like to meet you so we can discuss the detail.

Search within your pants. You know it to be true.

ROFL :D :D

And some implications at this point if they ever get together..

Lindy= God's wife? :eyespin:

Chrono Halaown = Chrono O'Neil? :eyespin::eyespin:

I’m not acutally going to start with a wedding. :heh: The piece I'm working on will be about how they came to start dating to start with, albeit told via flashbacks some indeterminate time into the future if it goes anywhere or not I don't know, but the urge to write something about this has totally taken hold. :uhoh:

:D Sounds good

The crack writing operation is proceeding smoothly expect completion within approximately 24 hours!

Even better :D

Not attempting to use an advantage like this is just so incredibly lame...

It's only good from the stand point of her enemies which makes it rather bad for HER.

Well you've got this killer special move and you don't even try to use it?! Come on how weak is that what are you all pussies?! :mad:

Which I'm sorry, but I consider piss poor writing anytime a writer resorts to "he didn't use this super power to utterly crush his enemy because I, the author, command it so" just pisses me off. This goes beyond a mere contrivance or act of plot into just insulting my and the character intelligence.

She's not going to make a very good general if she keep holding back and not wanting to kill people. :rolleyes:

The idea of O’Neil as Chrono’s step father is indeed to me at least absolutely hilarious.

O’Neil: How’s it going kiddo?
Chrono: I’ve told you to stop calling me that. -_-
O’Neil: Is that any way to talk to your father?
Chrono: You’re not my father.
O’Neil: *feigns shock and emotional injury.*
Chrono: What the hell dose she see in you anyway…?
O’Neil: If it’s any consolation I can’t figure out what your wife sees in you either.
Chrono: …

Immunity? Whats that? Is it delicious? :D

YES. One of the few artwork that accurately portrays Hayate right down to her device as well as making her look super badass. :cool:


Yes, immunity is very delicious, best served with sauce :nod:

And more badass Hayate is required :heh:


Yes. Literally.


My room is right next to the router, so when I heard a bang, I went to check it out. The thing looked quite crispy when I opened it.

Thing is, I'm not screwing around with Hayate!:mad:Yet.

And because you fervently wish she could talk to you for real. :p


The question is would you stop if I told you to?:eyebrow:
I think we all know the answer to that and I've already said it in this sentence. :p

Let's just say I want more Real-type to Super-type now.:p

Real men use Real-types. ;):p



So you really do want more chibis after all...:heh:
Well, I'm not really planning one...:heh:
Not really no, but I did feel like being contrary. :p

Yep.:D I'll then do my own brand of fanservice that utilizes only minimal explicit undertones and relies more on the interactions.:DMy preferred kind as well.


Neck and neck, it'll be!:D
Actually, not too much. Signum is stronger than Grandis when she's in Unison. But I'll have him manage to defeat her and knock out + nab Hayate later.:D
Signum seems to be getting into a bit of a losing rut in the OC and canon recently. :heh:
:nod:
Though I'd like to do more team tactics when I get to the Hayate's week as a Damsel in Distress arc.:D
Good, good team battles are fun as well though admittedly more of a pain to write.

Now I am the master...!:mad:



For some reason, I want to see a scenario where Tesla suddenly finds out she has an all-female fanclub :uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:
Well she can ask Signum for some advice on handling it at least. :p


As a matter of fact, it actually shut down on me after trying to play it for an hour. :heh:
Fortunately, I brought out his brother, who has twice the memory. Finished it last night. :nod:Nice.


I liked it. The moment that gun was shoved to me I had this huge grin on my face as I pulled the trigger.
Well yeah, but everyone else you know died. =/


I'm fortunate to say that I have no experience in the matter.
Yes, yes you are. :uhoh:


It is? I thought that was the general term for it... Didn't Signum get called 'onee-sama' in certain fandom circles?I prefer to call her a stone cold killer but that's just me. :p

I always find a crackling fire to be soothing. Nice place to do calm things like posting here, too bad we have none at home.
Nope dosen't really do anything for me, I tend to find the sound of running water more soothing myself rainy days are my favorites, but we haven't been getting man down here recently. =/ Plenty of FOG today though visibility is about 100 meters.

I'm not, but then I'm used to such unexpected sounds.
Vermont is unnerving quiet at night no cars, or trains, or sounds in the distance just DEAD SILENCE so anything that breaks it will freak you out a little or it did to me anyway.

Well, it's a bit hard to trust you when you're continually fondling her....:uhoh:
That would be a major contributing factor to our lack of trust.


One of the things that suddenly pops up and you just have to do it. :DMore or less. :heh:


Fluoride doesn't cut it. Dump your own brand of crack in for best effect. :p
Of course you just keeping thinking that....


Not at all. Just that the two really didn't show that much chemistry beyond the teasing onee-san and embarrassed-serious imoto feeling to develop that far along and I'm taking a poke at the more tender moments they have. :p
Well that half because they skipped like 10 fucking years of development and didn't even throw us a damn flash back ep or something. =/

Taken from a parody of Vader's lines where certain choice words were replaced with "pants". :D

Ahh I remember that meme well we had an entire thread about it at Spacebattles. :heh:


But hey, I'm sure everyone has their soft spots. Doesn't make me any weirder because of what I see as interesting. :mad:Undoubtedly, but you commented on why people found it surprising and I told you. :p


Thus far her befriending all failed. Defense Programs and drones aren't very good friends to have. :heh::pHence why the process weeded them out as unworthy!


No no I would never do that!:twitch: Just enough to restrain her thats all. :p:uhoh:
Ahh so you perfer bondage to beatings. :p

Which I keep forgetting he is. :heh:
It's easy to forget, but at our stage of life even one or two years age can make a difference.


Mascot seems a bit high up. :heh:
Frankly just look at the posts whose constantly being discussed? Nanoha? Fate? Pff no it's always Hayate! Nanoha and Fate may rule the FF thread, but the OC is Hayate's house! :mad:

From the popularity polls, it seems just as likely they support Rei over Asuka simply because of ethnicity. :heh: The two each have their strong points of course. ;)What Rei's "making an excellent piece of furniture"? :eyebrow:


How about the rest of the family? Daughter? Daughter-in-law? Grandchildren? :D:D:DPatience, patience all in due to time. ;)

Shafted. :p

YES. One of the few artwork that accurately portrays Hayate right down to her device as well as making her look super badass. :cool:

Nah, that wouldn't have the problem.

Who's the lady in the yukata? :eek:
That's Ryogi Shiki, possessor of the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception. :) However, hers is said to be even more powerful than Tohno Shiki's. Why are their names the same? Well again, playing around with different naming conventions and stuff. The Japanese language sure is interesting, one is written as 式 and the other is 志貴.


That is definitely possible, and one of the main uses of combat-applied Lyrical Magic :)
So Erio's ideas on how to apply it to combat works along your idea?


Ahhh! So THAT's who this girl is. I was always wondering who the hell she was when I saw her images... :heh: Really nice. :D
Attractive ain't she? But like I said she's weird. :heh: I mean she wears either kimonos or yukatas to school. :D


Dont worry, I still havent created her properly. :heh:
Take your time, I know I'm taking mind. Can't help it because I probably won't be able to have another holiday once I start working, at least not one that is weeks worth.


I think I'm going to create a Lyrical mage who plays a flute. :D
Flute eh? I need to think of something too. :)


Ah, I thought you meant an OC reunion, actually. :heh:
Nope. :heh:


Yeah... same here. At least it was entertaining, though. :D

:eyespin::eyespin::eyespin: Mind you I stopped watching that lousy excuse for an anime after 4 episodes. I've never watch an anime where I wanted to kill the main character so much before, he deserved the boat. :frustrated:


Shh. :uhoh:
Oh hohohohohoho! Guess right. :heh:


Only time would tell. :uhoh: :upset:
Well from the short history in the profile that I still remember, he'll end up fighting the Aces no?


:heh:

It wouldn't be bad if he rips off... the clothes, only.

*runs*
Might as well start stripping people totally. Though I don't think that's how its supposed to be used. :uhoh:


:heh: it's been my writing style since I posted the Animax entry (gawd, it didn't make it to the final round :upset: ). But I can't bet my money on that. :uhoh:
Oh? You entered that? Well too bad really. A Japanese won the final event, felt like it was cheating or something, somehow. :heh:


:nod: another "lifeline cutter" character courtesy of TYPE-MOON. And she's badass, too. :D
She is, if she feels the need to eliminate someone, she won't hesitate to.



THE GEMINI SISTERS II
CHAPTER 4


*snip*

*snip*

This turns out be a quite interesting soap drama. :heh: :heh: and I can already imagine the real Yutaro's attempt to dry Freya's legs. :uhoh:
"This is relevant to my interest." ??? What interest? :twitch: And this chapter made my eyes spin really wildly. :eyespin::eyespin::eyespin:


and I can't resist posting this as well.

TEARS OF THE NORTHERN WIND
CHAPTER 4, part 1


I assumed while writing this first part that everybody's available after StrikerS, unless they have other plans. :uhoh: :uhoh:

BTW, the person at the ending? That's Hikki's WAIFU. :uhoh:
Yeah expected that to be Mai. Looks like this chapter will lead up to the discovering of Hikki's location, and then the Hikki vs Aces battle. :)


Chrono just simply has too much fun combing Amy's hair. :heh::rolleyes:
You know the drill. First its the hair, then eventually Amy might sniff crack and ask him to do her makeup. Then one thing after another and they would be start doing...erm never mind. :uhoh:


Just that Arf eventually became the one who would need protection in a firefight. :heh::heh:
Hmm...perhaps. Though more likely Arf felt that Fate didn't didn't require her help anymore, so it was probably better to be off the frontlines.


Give him some better protection before you do. He might come back a changed man. :uhoh:
Don't worry, he has more or less my mentality, in that "YURI FANS MUST DIE!!!!" So he'll be safe. :D


I'll pass. Just for today. ;)
And I'm still running low, well lucky him.


All is revealed. :eek: Hayate+pillow case = -fill in the blanks of your choice-

Meanwhile I'll just run for my life. :uhoh:
Yeah that's a pillow case. There's even some with Nanoha and Fate on it. Anime characters on pillow case are a norm in Japan, though really only the otakus buy them. And of course I'm sure a lot of you know about some of them who paint and draw their cars with anime characters on them, some with very glaring panty shots. :rolleyes:


School Days held something nice for me among the trainwreck.:( More drama lines at least. :D

And..

Don't you mean one-too-many? :rolleyes:

:D:D

...

:uhoh::uhoh:
School Days was so crappy I didn't consider it watchable. It became obvious not halfway through the whole series that I realize that little faggot just wanted to lift some skirts. :eyebrow:


Saw episode 7 of Rental Magica...and I must say...
Lapis-chan = :love: MOE :love:

Hauuu~ omochi kaeri!!!
*takes Lapis-chan and runs*
Oh dear, FlameSparkZ seems to have something for this type of characters it seems. :heh: She's kinda like Treize IMO.


you don't seem to be doing much on that front besides drooling over her though. :p
I have my hands full going through my mountain pile of unfinished games. :heh: Besides the rabu-rabu stuff is good enough in Aaron's hands, and Chaos would probably do the "omg nooooooooooo" moments.


Hayate now comparable to bag of chips. :p
Well you don't fondle a bag of chips do you? :uhoh:


Another one that thinks Tesla Onee-Sama dose not compute... :heh:
Onee-sama definitely doesn't compute. She's more like a super intelligent girl friend that people would turn to when facing problems.


*Officially adds FA to Perv list* :p
:upset: *sob*


Happens all the time along with other peoples character own other creators. :heh::p
:heh:


Thing is, I'm not screwing around with Hayate!:mad:
I have a feeling Aaron didn't get the hidden meaning when we mean screwing around. :heh:


Yep.:D I'll then do my own brand of fanservice that utilizes only minimal explicit undertones and relies more on the interactions.:D
Hoho...would be interesting to see this happen. :D


Neck and neck, it'll be!:D
Actually, not too much. Signum is stronger than Grandis when she's in Unison. But I'll have him manage to defeat her and knock out + nab Hayate later.:D
:twitch: He'd have to pull of something like "omgwtfhaxx!!" for that to happen.


:nod:
Though I'd like to do more team tactics when I get to the Hayate's week as a Damsel in Distress arc.:D
Damsel in distress huh? That does describe her pretty well sometimes. :heh:


To tell you the truth, I already have a few crack scenarios of that scenario in my head...:heh:
Aaron has sniffed Lowe's crack gas! :twitch:


I'm finding it hard to put a scenario which makes Hayate go 'Iyaaaaaa~!':heh:
Well maybe not when Grandis and Hayate first meet. Such a scenario would sound better when they start to slowly get attracted to each other. What better to spark off the whole thing with a 'IIIyaaaaaaaaaa' scene? :heh:


I'm not!:mad:

<continues stroking her hair>
Your mouth says no, but your hand says yes. :rolleyes:


I thought it was a wallpaper...:heh:
Nope. Its really a pillow case. :heh: If you look at the size of it carefully you'll agree that its true.


Dakara, I sai-:thinker:

IDEA!:D:D:D
I have successfully seeded the beginnings of a (crack?) idea into Aaron's mind! :D


To her back when she starts crying?:rolleyes::p
Her back might be sensitive. :naughty: *hears soft moaning coming from the direction of where Aaron and Hayate is*


Shamal was the one who cast this when she was saved from Chrono by the masked man (actually Aria). She invoked the Tome to unleasha HUEG lightning strike.:uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:
And she still needed a short aria for that one.


It would be a small world it I've met some of them..:heh: Where were they staying?
Melbourne.


But procrastination is good..:uhoh:
Well not exactly. Procrastination can come back to haunt people, but right now its probably better that I enjoy my holidays. Still I should probably start or I'll never be able to continue past where I stopped in my story. :heh:


I see... Although that's unlikey to happen as I don't think shes going to be having a tour to oz anytime soon...
The live I was talking about was on TV. :heh: Animax is showing Music Station (a highly popular Japanese music program on TV) on Fridays. She showed up a few times, and her real voice just doesn't match what we hear in the anime songs we hear.


But we never see them doing anything of the sought... If anything its was Teana who was in charge of developing the teamwork, not Nanoha..
Ahhh true but Nanoha was definitely the one who taught them the basics of tactics. Teana was the one who seem to have the tactical mindset and leadership qualities, so she took charge as leader during missions and often makes up plans and ideas on the spot.

I'll still credit Nanoha with the teaching basics of tactical combat.


Yes, immunity is very delicious, best served with sauce :nod:

And more badass Hayate is required :heh:
Sorry, immunity takes away the fun and shock in "wtf?" moments of fanservice, so its bad! Bad!! :frustrated: :heh:


Youch :heh::upset: I really didn't think my guess would actually be true :heh:

Modem kept on too long? :eyebrow:
I switch mine off whenever I go to sleep.


Not screwing around, just screwing her right?

*runs very fast*
You should have leave it for him to keep guessing what we were secretly meaning with that phrase. :heh:

Eva is somewhat on the blurry divide between both though :heh:


It's a direct hit!!!! :D:D:D

This is a job for PLOT DEVICE!!!!!!! :D:D:D

*runs*
Don't worry I've got it covered! Aaron has already been seeded with ideas. :D (Somehow suddenly I feel that seeded sounds so wrong I wonder why. :rolleyes:)


And she's crying because your other hand's on her ass? :uhoh:

Skirt lifting. :eyespin:

Eva is somewhat on the blurry divide between both though :heh:

Not super as most super but quite close in real to certain aspects.


:heh::heh: They never run out of steam do they?

Inexhaustible. :heh:



Real men use Real-types. ;):p

I sense traces of GAR here. :D


Exploiting magic for personal gain is great fun!

Among them telepathy seems the most abuse worthy. :D:uhoh:


Unleash the crack, it's fun!

Wow happy Tk is high. :heh:


*Posses dramatically atop a pile of his defeated foes*

High on GAR or is it crack? :heh::heh:


On the other hand.
" ~ Someone told me love will all save us.
But how can that be, look what love gave us.
A world full of killing, and blood-spilling.
That world never came.~" :uhoh::p

My kind of music. :D :joke:


Well that half because they skipped like 10 fucking years of development and didn't even throw us a damn flash back ep or something. =/

10 years was wasted, especially during that stage of their lives. Might not have been so bad if there was more development shown other than details. Only Nanoha's incident serves to show anything towards her growth. =/


Ahh so you perfer bondage to beatings. :p

No. :)


It's easy to forget, but at our stage of life even one or two years age can make a difference.

*sighs in agreement*


What Rei's "making an excellent piece of furniture"? :eyebrow:

That much is conceded. She is interesting to study for her mentality alone and her impact on the other two children.


Indeed Badass Hayate nearly dosen't compute, and that's sad. :(

Part of the shaft. :upset:


I'm just feeling a bit loopy today it's the last day of classes before I'm off for a solid week, I'm on cloud nine!



Nice. I'm slugging until X'mas. :(


Hey, she's nicer than some of the people I've met in RL....
+ Who wouldn't want a chick who can cook, clean, blow people up..... :heh:

Leave it to the Wolkies to blow people up, or rather reduce them to bits and pieces. :uhoh:


Well, he went home during the mid-semester break earlier this year, so I don't see any reason why he wouldn't be going back home for the long holidays before uni starts again next year.... in MARCH

Wiii, loooong holiday :D

1/3 of the year? :eyespin:

I'LL KILL YOU!

He's lost it. :uhoh:


:nod:

A young maiden's purity is in Aaron's hands...

Lol, things I thought I'll never say :D

And you're well on the way to even brighter greatness. :D


... =_=

I never watched School Days, and I really did only play one.

Do not discount the impact of one. ;)


Fate's hair is longer.

No arguments here. Long hair is very versatile. :D


Only if he's good looking.

:rolleyes:


It's worse than you think.

All the fluffy contamination as mutated him into a super-bug.

That's not my sentence :heh:

OC Signum seems to have become afflicted with the Worf Effect (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheWorfEffect)… Anytime someone wants show how bad ass they are they go kick her ass. Frankly I'm worried about how much longer she'll put up with it before she comes looking for blood... :uhoh:

First line of the page says it all. :heh:


*Looks at everyone else suspiciously* If anyone else goes to "Comfort her" they're dead understood? :eyebrow:

Actually a big red bullseye just appeared. :uhoh:

Frankly just look at the posts whose constantly being discussed? Nanoha? Fate? Pff no it's always Hayate! Nanoha and Fate may rule the FF thread, but the OC is Hayate's house!

and THAT is why I am in this thread because hayate is win.

Same issue with StrikerS as well

The thing is, the development happens in the manga/soundstages/etc, and very few people have access to them, at least not as many as they do the anime.

Stupid question - what's a tsundere?


Hmm, whats the college times like in the US? As in when semester's start and end.

fall Semester is usually from mid-August to mid December
Spring Semester is usually from early January to early May.

Anyway, let me see if I can do a little better with my OC creation.


Name: Xalinth Tamerlan
Age: 19
Affiliation: TSAB Armored Division, former mercenary.
Magic Colour: Dark Red
Magic Type: Neo-Belka
Home Planet: Midchilda
Device: Weisenfangkreuz (White Fang Cross)



An attractive man, with intense, small brown eyes and dark red hair. He is of above-average height, 6'1, 175 pounds. Life as a mercenary has made his features more scruffy, compared to his clean-shaven TSAB days, and he has decided to retain that look. He usually wears a black uniform with the TSAB crest on the breast pocket, and long black trousers.

His armor consists of a black, longsleeved shirt with a red Belka symbol on the front. His pants and shoes are jet black as well.




Weisenfangkreuz is in the form of a crossbow, burnished completely white. It is about 2 feet long, though it can quickly extend 2 feet into a spear to provide some defense in a melee situation. It was given to him upon his completion of his TSAB training by Yagami Hayate, who gave him a great deal of personal training to develop his ranged magical skill.

Hauptsonnenpfeil (Mega Solar Arrow...?)- This sacrifices range, and speed to increase power.

Power: S

Glänzender Angriff (Meteoric Assault) - A bombardment attack that loads a large amount of energy into the device (requires a cartridge load), fires into the sky, and the energy bombards everything in a 150-250m radius.

Power: S (in terms of total output, not per shot)
Speed: AA
Range: AA
Accuracy: N/A
Casting Speed: B
Area of Effect: B

Xalinth Tamerlan was born to a rich Midchildan family who had great influence in politics and policy. As a child, he was expected to follow in the path of the several members of his family who have had TSAB posts in the past, particularly his brother, who died in service. He begain training in the TSAB at the age of ten.

However, in his heart, he resented the control his family had over his life, and even though he actually was interested in magic, he was very rebellious, and was initally very resistant to his early magical training.

Because of his latent magical talent, and because of his training, he was already an AAA class mage. He was comissioned to recieve personal training from two elite mages - Ace Hayate Yagami and Der Kleriker, Kha Alexi Testarossa. By the time he was 16, he had completed his training, received the intelligent device Weisenfangkreuz, raised his rank to class S, and looked to be on the fast track for greatness.

But suddenly, as a commissioned officer, he became incredibly rebellious. He started ignoring orders. His behavior became wildly unprofessional...to say the least. He became very disrespectful to his superiors - saying highly...scandalous...things to people.


Nanoha, could you get off my case? Go dyke around with Fate or something.



Hey, the real magic is not in Weisenfangkreuz, its down here (pointing to his crotch while talking to some female trainee mages)



Mmmmm, Vita-chan, I'm usually not into that kind of thing, but I'll become a lolicon just for you baby.


That was the general line of his indiscretions.

Hayate and Kha tried their best to rein him in, as well as keep him from being dishonorably discharged. But just as when it looked as that would be a matter of time...he suddenly quit service and disappeared. He (under questionable circumstances) purchased a small ship capable of dimensional travel, and started wandering aimlessly. He traveled randomly to both administrated and non-adminstrated worlds, taking part in random conflicts for pay. His travels eventually brought him to Earth's Uminari City, where he met up with Yamamoto Takeru, a young Japanese teen who turned out having a great deal of magical power. Even though he was still comparatively inexperienced, as well as not very skilled in melee combat, he trained Takeru to the best of his ability, and even purchased a device for him, called the Muramasa.

In his heart, he knew that Takeru would need TSAB training to fulfill his potential. But he was too proud to go back.

But a chance meeting with Hayate, who was vacationing on Earth for a few weeks, and a frank discussion with Takeru finally convinced Xalinth to return to the TSAB, and accept any punishment they would impose on him.

To his suprise, it was decided in his absence that he would not be penalized for his previous indiscretions, due to the influence of, to his suprise, Nanoha - the person who he antagonized most. He resumed his service in the TSAB from that point on, while Takeru Yamamoto began training in the Belka style as a melee attacker.




Strengths: Exceptional ranged attacker. Great versatility and range. Very intelligent and cerebral mage, who is very precise in the way he consumes his magic; therefore, he can fight for a long time. Excellent at taking out opposing individual personnel. His ability to break defensive barriers with a single shot is very rare among mages and is incredibly useful as a support option. Can evade enemy fire with ease with his quickness and evasion.

Weaknesses:

Not a threat at all in terms of melee combat - in that area he's limited to little more than blocking and parrying. Very undefensive - he does not use barrier magic, and his barrier jacket is designed to provide the greatest amount of manuverability possible. Can bombard in a sense, but does not direct the shots due to the effort it would take at this point at his magical career. Certainly cannot "nuke".

Attack Stats:
Melee: C-
Range: S
Wide-Area: F

Defense Stats:
Speed: AAA
Physical Defense: C
Magical Defense: C

Support Stats:
Barrier Magic: F
Healing Magic: F
Binding Magic: F

Terranigma is quite good, especially with its rich plotline and I daresay quite detailed graphics for SNES. Saving a world from scratch is epic indeed. :D

:nod: :nod: :nod:

Shaping history had never been more fun... except Civilization IV, but that's a different genre altogether. Though frankly, I would kill (( catgirls )) to see Terranigma remade with White Engine by Team ICO + Level 5.

:twitch::twitch::twitch:

This is going to be a problem...

Nah. I'm dying of laughter here. :heh:

And thus we discover why Phanan usually doesn't like visiting doctors other then himself.

Well, I still have plans to write an operating theatre scene, which is why I'm clocking up a little on :eyespin::eyespin::eyespin: medical terms.

Thing is, I'm not screwing around with Hayate!:mad:

Of course you aren't. You're being sincere about it. :)


To tell you the truth, I already have a few crack scenarios of that scenario in my head...:heh:

JUST AS PLANNED.

Now to see what Aaron can cook up...

Rei is actually the most popular Eva girl of all of them, if the rather massive number of fans and merchandise on her is any indication :heh:

Very true. Although...Asuka is my #1 :D


For some reason, I want to see a scenario where Tesla suddenly finds out she has an all-female fanclub :uhoh::uhoh::uhoh:

:twitch:
...right


YES. One of the few artwork that accurately portrays Hayate right down to her device as well as making her look super badass. :cool:


:D
I still find Hayate's Barrier jacket design to be my favorite out of all of them. :eyespin:


So you really do want more chibis after all...:heh:
Well, I'm not really planning one...:heh:


Xgouki: Hmm...

Shamsel: Don't you even think about it...

My room is right next to the router, so when I heard a bang, I went to check it out. The thing looked quite crispy when I opened it.

Very undefensive - he does not use barrier magic, and his barrier jacket is designed to provide the greatest amount of manuverability possible. Can bombard in a sense, but does not direct the shots due to the effort it would take at this point at his magical career. Certainly cannot "nuke".

Attack Stats:
Melee: C-
Range: S
Wide-Area: F

Defense Stats:
Speed: AAA
Physical Defense: C
Magical Defense: C

Support Stats:
Barrier Magic: F
Healing Magic: F
Binding Magic: F


Hmm... Neo-belkan user, ok. Neo-belkan ranged user ... unusual since neo-belkan is mostly melee with some range but USB500 done it before. Hmm... very low defence, but high shooting power... a glass cannon, nuff said. Hmm... a AAA glass cannon, I wonder how he pass the mage ranking exams... small detail. Hmm... extremely rude (to many) + glass cannon + still alive??? Does not compute.

I have no idea how to rate this character. Seems ok, but personality and history wise seems rather screwy. Someone take over.

Reminds me that Koizumi Itsuki Der Pfeifer from my OC's uses a Lyrical Instrument in the form of a flute :uhoh:

Yup. :D But he didnt use it offensively... :uhoh:

:heh: Lemme see :heh:

And yes, once she gained her physical body, Asuka can use Khaydarin, although much limited in ability than Kay, since the siblings in their bodies are E rank in terms of magic level :heh:

Although Asuka would rather get her own specs as opposed to taking one of Kay's most important keepsakes :heh:

:nod: And she'll probably want one like this...

Hauuu~ omochi kaeri!!!
*takes Lapis-chan and runs*

Rental...Magica...huh?

...Maybe I'll have to watch this...

*whistles*

Not really I see it going something like this…

iORmi46dowo
Never bring a sword (or spear) to a gunfight. (yes I know you meant the OCs, no I don't care:p)

I love that scene. :D

Indeed, but curses for the slow ass mail system in this country!

Maybe I'll wait until I get a HDTV first, though...that game looks way nice. :D

Na IS: Video Spam. :p I just got my hands on the full version of Fraps and I've been learning to play with video dub so I've gotten a little tube happy lately. :p

lol Wait, some of those videos were captured by you?

Perhaps, but I have to admit it's also pretty hilarious for the irnoy alone. :heh::uhoh:

Yeah I also think its hilarious... but poor Aaron is surely hurt. :heh:

The fluoride I've inserted into all you guys water supplies is making you more vulnerable to my hax busting messages of course... :p

:uhoh: ITS A TRAP!!

I think I'll be avoiding that you wouldn't want to hear my try to compose song lyrics... :uhoh:

Its Lyrical Magic without Lyrics!! :p

I realized what I really wanted.:) I don't need any more power-ups than what is present. In fact, I'll scrap some of them and just add Aurion's stronger manipulation ability (w/ glowing eyes like in the GuardianS: From the Edge chapter) and Orphenoch.:D Tyrfing'll get a major overhaul and be slated for Grandis later.

And yet...you still havent realized what's really important...AurionXHayate*cough**ahem*

To her back when she starts crying?:rolleyes::p

When she starts crying after you were so rough from doing this:
And she's crying because your other hand's on her ass? :uhoh:

*runs*
?
:eyebrow::p

*runs*

:nod:

A young maiden's purity is in Aaron's hands...

Lol, things I thought I'll never say :D

Aaron's so lucky...

Oh yeah like Mai chasing you around all the time for spraying that can of crack spray. :heh:

Lowe actually loves when Mai chases him around......:uhoh:

That's Ryogi Shiki, possessor of the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception. :) However, hers is said to be even more powerful than Tohno Shiki's. Why are their names the same? Well again, playing around with different naming conventions and stuff. The Japanese language sure is interesting, one is written as 式 and the other is 志貴.

Attractive ain't she? But like I said she's weird. :heh: I mean she wears either kimonos or yukatas to school. :D

Makes her cute though. :D Itsuki's love interest maybe...? :uhoh:

So Erio's ideas on how to apply it to combat works along your idea?

Flute eh? I need to think of something too. :)

With my idea I just described how Bards work in MMOs... especially the ones from Final Fantasy XI. That's why I'm thinking of a Lyrical mage that plays a flute. :D

FFXI is surely not the best MMO, but I gotta say that it is the one I enjoyed the most out of the ones I have tried (the others were RO, WoW, Lineage II). Being a Bard in that game, I just had to concentrate in buffing my party and healing when needed...I did not have to fight at all...and yet, strange, but it was incredibly fun. :D

Take your time, I know I'm taking mind. Can't help it because I probably won't be able to have another holiday once I start working, at least not one that is weeks worth.

The only problem I have is that, since I'd like to write a story, I cannot post any OCs that havent been introduced yet in it... I actually have maybe over 20 OCs I have already completed with Lowe, but cant post them yet. :uhoh: :heh:

"Ditch the first 11 episodes, the last one is the only one you'll need to watch!!!"
"Oh rly?"
"Yeah rrrrreallly!" *shows the boat*
"Holy mother of its a boat!!! Nice boat!!!"

:eyespin::eyespin::eyespin: Mind you I stopped watching that lousy excuse for an anime after 4 episodes. I've never watch an anime where I wanted to kill the main character so much before, he deserved the boat. :frustrated:

:heh: I dont know why I finished watching that... oh well.

And according to Keroko, Prism Ark's main character, Hwayeh or however that's spelled, is pretty bad, too... :heh: I havent watched that yet, but he does seem to be the same as Makoto from what I've seen... :uhoh:

Damnit, the situation is worse than I thought...

P.S - Jail could easily do this song as well...
Ooo...nice song :D

Oh dear, FlameSparkZ seems to have something for this type of characters it seems. :heh: She's kinda like Treize IMO.
A bit, yeah :heh:

I can't help it, they're so cute :D
Oh, and I forgot to mention...

She's a Homunculus



Rental...Magica...huh?

...Maybe I'll have to watch this...

*whistles*
Yep, the male lead's childhood friend is voiced by Ueda Kana (Hayate's VA) :D

And according to Keroko, Prism Ark's main character, Hwayeh or however that's spelled, is pretty bad, too... :heh: I havent watched that yet, but he does seem to be the same as Makoto from what I've seen... :uhoh:
It's not Hyaweh who's bad...it's what the MFI team did with the plot that makes you go :eyespin:
The anime is but a mere shadow of the game...a very small one.

Ahh, woops, got blindsided for a moment... yes that's correct. Although it's still going to be extrememly difficult without fliers.
Like TK said, difficult, but not impossible. It's more of a battle of tactics compared to most StrikerS training sessions.
Nice spell list here, nicely detailed and useful while maintaining respectable power levels :)
Thank you, thank you. *bows* I bet it's the shortest spell list EVER, for an OC charecter.

With her wet gi sticking to her... lines... :eek:

WANT

It's too bad this will never happen in the anime, but if it did, it would be so win....

I’m not acutally going to start with a wedding. :heh: The piece I'm working on will be about how they came to start dating to start with, albeit told via flashbacks some indeterminate time into the future if it goes anywhere or not I don't know, but the urge to write something about this has totally taken hold. :uhoh:
Well, it'd certainly be a match that most people wouldn't see coming. I bet the Aces & friends will be shocked at it. ^__^

Not bad pretty conventional all told, but that fits his profile I think Johnson wouldn't really be one for too much flash and theatrics I think he'd just want to get the job done.

I think it might be the shortest spellist for an OC, but yeah, that's what I was aiming at: getting the job done without too much flash and theatrics.

The crack writing operation is proceeding smoothly expect completion within approximately 24 hours!
Copy, we'll remain on station to support!

They have a larger Military Police Corp and an ROTC program at several colleges near my home (the nearest navy ROTC is several states away) state colleges are significantly cheaper for residents so my parents would really prefer I go to a state school, they wouldn’t force me, but the army is fine for me so I’ll probably do so.
Ah, I see... makes sense then. Be all that you can be! *thumbs up*
I had a feeling when I saw him tied to the chair he wasn't leaving that room alive.
I was expecting interrogation followed by having to carry his ass all the way to the extraction chopper, so Price shooting him in mixed anger and disgust after the phonecall was a bit of a surprise. In hindsight, I should have seen it coming...

I don't see how anyone can't consider the fact they might need to kill people when they joint the army, but some clearly don't think it through very throughly and then whine when it comes time to do the dirty work. :rolleyes: Anyway obviously from the above comment I want to be an MP I'm too big for Armor (6' 4" I'd be bonking my head all over the place:p:heh:), but maybe I can get into one of those neat little armored cars they've been getting. :D
Yep, though the Japanese seem to be of the impression that the armed forces exist for disaster relief and to be cannon fodder.

And even here StrikerS is barely passable. Well when trying to enforce civil order bombing schools, clinics, churches etc to get at a few guys inside is usually a poor tactic…
Yep *nodding* That's what Franz is counting on - but Nanoha is also aware of that, which is why she's using a multi-pronged search, with Subaru, the Forwards, and her WAS looking for the hiding ground troops...

It is a classic warrior pose... :uhoh:
Plus under that gi she's naked and she's only wearing the gi....:uhoh:

Hey let's not get too mean Amy is pretty hot IMO I wouldn't complain about having her as a wife myself.:p
When I saw Chrono combing Amy's hair I realised that there was a romantic possibility between the two of them... and she is pretty hot.

Plus they'd all be really strong, after all no weakenlings would survive the "befriending" process...
*chuckles* Indeed, almost all of Nanoha's friends to survive the befriending process are pretty powerful.
The idea of O’Neil as Chrono’s step father is indeed to me at least absolutely hilarious.

O’Neil: How’s it going kiddo?
Chrono: I’ve told you to stop calling me that. -_-
O’Neil: Is that any way to talk to your father?
Chrono: You’re not my father.
O’Neil: *feigns shock and emotional injury.*
Chrono: What the hell dose she see in you anyway…?
O’Neil: If it’s any consolation I can’t figure out what your wife sees in you either.
Chrono: …
:p
Lol, yes! Carry on with this crack - it needs to be written! Wildfire remaining on station to provide cover!
Shit like this just makes me want to beat the Japanese with baseball bats, those A-bombs must have really fucked them up in the head.:uhoh:
It's not just the Japanese. Anytime people go on and on about Asian values... for crying out loud, Asians are collectively the biggest ethnic group of freak perverts in the world...


Signum seems to be getting into a bit of a losing rut in the OC and canon recently. :heh:
Good, good team battles are fun as well though admittedly more of a pain to write.
Keep your fingers crossed, I'm attempting that...

Actually, now that I think about it, I wonder if Nanoha's method of training teamwork is based on the following: she notes that Teana has a natural gift for tactics and leadership, and so decides to set things up so that in EVERY practice, Teana has no choice but to be the leader, forcing her to level up her leadership quickly through sheer hard work...



*Posses dramatically atop a pile of his defeated foes*
The floor's slick with their blood. :D

Frankly just look at the posts whose constantly being discussed? Nanoha? Fate? Pff no it's always Hayate! Nanoha and Fate may rule the FF thread, but the OC is Hayate's house! :mad:
It's more fun to play with her, I guess, compared to Nanoha and fate...

The one armed gimp had that bullet to the brain coming.
Fuck yeah, especially with a 1911, the pistol of the just and righteous, the weapon with the holy union of .45 and 1911, built by Saint John Moses Browning from the plans he received from God on the mountain.

Attractive ain't she? But like I said she's weird. :heh: I mean she wears either kimonos or yukatas to school. :D
With a leather jacket too....

The thing is, the development happens in the manga/soundstages/etc, and very few people have access to them, at least not as many as they do the anime.

Yep, which is truly a sad thing... many creators don;t bother about the outside world. This is one of the reasons I give Hideo Kojima props: the man acknowledges his foreign fans as much as Japanese fans.

Stupid question - what's a tsundere?
Asuka Sorhyu, Akane of Ranma 1/2, Rin Tohsaka: these are examples. A tsundere girl (or tsunderekko) has mood swings between the tsun - angry, agressive, PMSing, slapping - and dere - where she's all shy and insecure.

Many tsunderekko suffer from split personality in this regard... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsundere http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Tsundere


Name: Xalinth Tamerlan
Age: 19
Affiliation: TSAB Armored Division, former mercenary.
Magic Colour: Dark Red
Magic Type: Neo-Belka
Home Planet: Midchilda
Device: Weisenfangkreuz (White Fang Cross)



An attractive man, with intense, small brown eyes and dark red hair. He is of above-average height, 6'1, 175 pounds. Life as a mercenary has made his features more scruffy, compared to his clean-shaven TSAB days, and he has decided to retain that look. He usually wears a black uniform with the TSAB crest on the breast pocket, and long black trousers.

His armor consists of a black, longsleeved shirt with a red Belka symbol on the front. His pants and shoes are jet black as well.




Weisenfangkreuz is in the form of a crossbow, burnished completely white. It is about 2 feet long, though it can quickly extend 2 feet into a spear to provide some defense in a melee situation. It was given to him upon his completion of his TSAB training by Yagami Hayate, who gave him a great deal of personal training to develop his ran
