Sadly, by the time we learn all that no one will care anymore. Already people have moved on. I wonder, is Japan still interested in Frozen Trainwreck?

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And itís also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

Honestly, I felt some of the flashbacks(specifically the ones dealing with Treize and the early days of OZ) were better than the main story.

Not much of a comeback if he didn't get the initial joke ^_^;

Holy mother-f'in cow!If that could be turned into a fanfic that fits withing the gundamW world, I think I might read it.
So this would make Treize, Dorothy, Heero Pilot, and Trowa No-name cousins.... If this last statement was true, then that means that Trowa No-Name is Mariemaia's great step uncle something or other...? Now, if only we could make Duo Relena's long lost half brother!

The idea of Duo being Relena and Milliardo's long-lost brother is amusing, but I don't think it'll scan. But speaking of back stories...

I have the Episode Zero manga, and there is no mention of "Solo" in it, except for the written blurb at the end of Duo's part. The online scans I have seen don't mention him anywhere else either. Where'd this information come from?

Well even if it was more popular then GW when it started going a full year with nothing new and reusing all the character designs all the while not actually showing the new units outside of some fucking Cloacks, I can't really blame everyone for moving on.

The only Wing character that could ever carry things for very long on character alone was Treize, so having this long with no real new characters or Gundams is freaking retarded.

I think Ep.0 is the only place Solo is mentioned... I scanned through my GW tech manual and the gundam encyclopedia but he isn't there. I hope he shows up in GotD at some point in the story. What I want to know is, where did people get all the info about Solo?
  • Under Duo's name in the wiki character list for the series it saids: "In Episode Zero, it was revealed that he (Duo) chose his name to commemorate a boy named Solo, who he looked up to when they were part of a street gang as children; Solo had previously told the young Duo that they would always be together, but later died from a disease that swept the colony"
  • the gundam wiki saids: "Duo adopted his name after the gang leader, Solo, died of a fever.("If Solo's with me, we'll be Duo.")
I've read on other info pages that Solo died of some lung disease, or a fever, or god know what else has been written. Yet, like Nanobreaker said, the only mention of Solo was in a single sentence that only tells us that Duo meet Solo and that he died of a virus. So ya... where did all this info come from?

At this point I'm willing to suffer almost anything to get to the point Heero gets a fully revealed Snow White just so we can move on Wing Gundam Zero from time to time in the shit he gets into.

Love Zero and he is my favorite mecha ever (aside from Grendizer), but he has the same damn attacks in everything he does with little to no variation and I'm bored.

I believe that information about Solo is just fandom. Episode Zero mentions nothing like that.

It can't be fandom. It makes sense!

A timeline is nice but I still want chapters. Maybe they'll surprise us when they come back with a peak at a suit

It is mentioned in episode sero, in the sum-up at the end of Duo's chapter. He's mentioned in the part where they examine where his name comes from.

Edit: Nevermind, found it via the Gundam Wikia - Solo is only in the novelization of EW. O_o

Catching up after a long break (lol finals), so bear with me. Just gonna bullet/ link what I'm replying to instead of quoting, for brevity's sake:

-The Bloom family is of Russian descent according to Catherine's profile in the official guidebooks; this makes sense as they're intended to evoke traditional Russian circus acrobat families. Catherine should be in her mid to late 40's in FT as she's 2-3 years Trowa's senior.

-@Ikuze, are the images you posted here from Chapter 13 as well Or Chapter 14? Just checking so I can properly caption when I put them on the wiki. Also your notes about James Maxwell are interesting, I hadn't caught those. G's reaction makes so much more sense now XD

-Thanks for Vo.02, Deacon

-The information about Solo does come from the EW novelizations. I know I found it definitively at some point, but I'm blanking at the moment. I'll link if I find it again. It was definitely in Sumisawa's writings though.

Phew. What is even happening in this novel anymore?

EDIT: Also can anyone confirm for me that this is the cover for Chapter 14? http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/File:20...2120_421_o.jpg
Or is the BW image of Katherine and Phobos that Ikuze linked the cover? (Or are they both, lol, that's happened once too..)

I'm at work, but according to the timeline: MC-0001 = AC-187 (given that there is an AC date right below it). So that means MC-0022 = AC-211

Yeah that's Chapter.14.

So that just puts all of the original pilots in their late 20's early 30's >.> If Duo Jr. is around 14/15 that would mean he was born around the time of Endless Waltz A.C. 197, and hypothetically would give an explanation for Duo nearly choking in the end credits, if he just learnt he was going to be a "Daddy".
