WEB 8 Part 32 (2nd half)
Sinon remembers Higa’s explanation that the Goddess accounts aren’t GM accounts, just very powerful Player Character ones so not to break UW people’s SoD. (Flere821 note: WTH? This goes against earlier worldbuilding info (like how Asuna’s GM gear didn’t get diced by Alice’s sword)… and after reading the next few parts, this change is purely to set up for some unpleasant scenes later >.>) Her nuking ability runs on the area’s energy, and have a cooldown period of 10 minutes. Sinon comments she likes the manual kind more than the automatic kind anyway. Her attack only wiped out 10,000 players or so, but with how shaken the players are the human side can probably break through. Sinon’s account also has the unlimited flight ability, and she used it to fly down to where Asuna was. Asuna gave a flying tackle hug to Sinon when she saw her. Sinon told Asuna their group should retreat into the ruins she saw earlier when she was flying. Sinon then asked to see Kirito, and Asuna brought her over to Kirito’s wagon.
Teiza and Ronie both mistook Sinon as a goddess, which the RW girls explained she’s not. After being told Sinon’s also a friend of Kirito’s, Teiza sighed and Ronie muttered “they all seem to be girls”. Sinon snarked privately herself the girls dived into UW isn’t even all of them. Sinon saw Kirito herself after being told his condition by Higa, and went to embrace him. Sinon thought if he has lost his self, then forget what Higa had said about it being not repairable, she and others’ love can be gathered and used to fill his heart (Flere821 note: Sinon+Kirito shippers rejoice, for the passage here are concrete proof Sinon loves Kirito, instead of just camaraderie as suggested by some).
Sinon then kissed Kirito on the cheek. Due to no knowledge about Fluctlights and Incarnation, Sinon has no clue her idea of giving love to Kirito is not that far off from the only method to cure Kirito. She also didn’t feel Kirito respond slightly to her kiss.
Sinon tried to comfort the other girls present that when they need him the most Kirito will wake up (TN note: Which has been said quite a few times now by different people. Yet after thousands of deaths Kirito is still like this…). Sinon said she’ll fly to the ruins at the south to scout out the place, but was stopped by Asuna desperately. Asuna convinced Sinon to instead fly after Vector who had captured Alice. Sinon did so, while wondering where did Leafa went, she was supposed to have been logged in at the same time.
Scene change, to the plains near the Eastern Gate. The Orc (previously translated as ‘beastmen’ tribe using Chinese version, but after seeing the Jap raw being ‘O-ku’ (オーク) in katakana I’ll go with ‘Orc’) leader named Riruperin was scavenging the battlefield for what’s left of his people after being sacrificed by the dark mages. He found the fang earrings of the princess of his tribe. The living sacrifices of 5,000 of his people were ultimately in vain, having only killed just one Synthesis Knight and the Dark Mages were wiped out in return by Alice. Vector had left, and without cancelling his order of staying to fight the humans his people are forced into a meatgrinder.
Then, he found Leafa dropping down almost right next to him from above. After some talk Riruperin was acknowledged as a human by Leafa, something he has a complex about and this was a recognition he had never received in his life. This was covered in previous sections as well (Flere821 note: though I kinda skipped this as I thought it was unimportant at the time). The ‘cannibals’, after checking Jap version, I’ll now be calling them ‘Ogres’(オーガ). Leafa asks where she landed into. There’s some BS never mentioned before in the series about her bad luck with new equipment, every time she uses new hardware it was buggy. Hence, her appearance here rather than where Asuna is. Leafa also decided to not kill anyone unless she really has to when she’s in UW, the Fluctlights are just like humans. She’s in this to fight other players that are logged in. Riruperin says he’ll take Leafa prisoner and bring her to Vector. After thinking about it Leafa agreed to go along with him peacefully, as she thinks this is the best way to get to Vector. And with her infinite healing skill she’d still be in top shape after getting there.
Then, D, the leader of dark mages, who survived the earlier attack by Alice shot out of the ground and used this chance to launch a sneak attack on Leafa.
Scene change, Berculi is trying to catch up to Vector. Berculi might have 3 dragons to cycle through, but Vector is still ahead somehow like his dragon doesn’t get tired. Berculi decided to use his secret technique, Uragiri, to stop Vector. With this technique despite how Vector’s a few dozen KMs ahead the left wing of his dragon are blasted off.
