Yes, I've grasped the concept of 'trailer', question being, well...a trailer, for a fanfic? How?

Next bit of my fic--the Date one. I think it'll be unexpected.
Quote:
Silent moonlight was raining on the surface of the water. It isn't what I expected.

In the cold dry night of the desert, I saw the girl standing armored and tall in the
quiet, lonely dark. Her machine was silent in its stance, but the maiden's heart within her trembled like the turbulent oceans.

She turned to me with those questioning eyes, a hint of soft gentility clad in her cloak of beautiful steel.

"I wish I had met you sooner," she replied, the girl-woman hiding both her smile and tears under a tone of familiarity.

Looking at her I could only ask myself...how did it come to this?

-------------------------

Infinite Stratos: I Don't Wanna Know (What She Said)

-------------------------

I like cold weather, but could never get used to cold mornings in June.

Canberra in particular is exceptionally bloody cold. Being the nation's capital, it's meant to house politicians. There's not much else to see here except fireworks and adult magazines. So if you're not a politician, and don't really care much for fireworks or porn, there's really nothing to see here.

I'm not a politician by the way. Still, working with the Australian Security Intelligence Organization (ASIO) isn't too bad. I'd much rather be living in Sydnety or Melbourne, but alas, I go where the job is. There's not a lot of excitement to speak of. This is in Canberra, after all.

To clarify, ASIO is like the American CIA. You’re probably wondering how I could be working for such a top government organization and complain about my life being boring.

Well, since Australia generally has good relations with its neighbors, there really isn't anything to get excited about.

Also...I'm not a spy. I was an Office Admin All-Rounder.

To the yanks out there---that's Australian for Gofer. Which means that when I am sent out to do things, it's usually not something to do with major threats to Australia as a whole. More often than not it was the morning coffee and biscuits run.

So I was wondering why I was being called to the boss' office so early in the morning. Maybe he hated the coffee today, or maybe he needed me to fetch the daily paper. My boss at ASIO was a third-generation Italian by the name of Sam. A real good person to work for as long as he wasn't arguing with his newly ex-wife. Which was pretty often these days.

As I stood in his office door, I could hear a number of multilingual phrasings of profanities and the sound of Sam throwing his phone out the window. Again.

Uh-oh. I tried to grin but grimaced and waved.

"You wanted to see me, Sam?"

There was a gruff grunt as Sam mumbled about how men never get anything post-divorce anymore. He motioned me to sit, which in Sam's book meant pointing vehemently to a chair and saying "SIT." I sat.

Sam ran his hands through his non-existent hair for a second before fixing me in his sights with a shake of his head and sigh.

"What do you know about the Infinite Stratos Academy?"

"Huh." Didn't expect that. "It's an all-girls school for Infinite Stratos pilots located in Japan."

"I know that. I want to know if you've been keeping up to date on your current events."

That's right. Even though I'm just a junior-junior admin, this is still the ASIO. If I wanted to keep my job and get promoted, I had to know what was going on where.

Let me fill you in: The Infinite Stratos system, or IS is a powered exoframe originally developed for space exploration. Somehow things didn't work out as planned, and now it's instead used as either a novelty sporting prosthesis or a weapon system. For some reason that no one could figure out, it only works for women. Thus, IS Academy is an all-girls school.

Wait. A young man in Japan was able to activate an IS, something unheard of until recently. That person was enrolled in IS Academy, but then a large number of individuals with personalized IS systems have also turned up in the same school. And all of them seem to be in the same group as that young man in some way.

It's a political smorgasbord or nightmare depending which way you view it. That group had representatives from China, Great Britain, Germany, France, and even Russia. It's like the bloody United Nations in there.

I tell all this, succinctly, to Sam.

"Glad to see someone here has some idea of what's going on." Sam seemed to relax at this, which is good. He's a lot more pleasant when he's not stressing out. "What does that mean for us? Australia, I mean."

I could see Sam's point. Australia as a country shares good relations with China and America. We're also a commonwealth nation, so we have good relations with Great Britain (not that the Poms' bloody whinge any less every time we kick their tail in Cricket). And given that Japan's already tried to invade us once, we're on pretty good terms with them, too.

Kidding aside, however, Australia does have a bit of an issue.

There's only a limited number of Infinite Stratos units in the world. Thisis something declared by international law. I never figured out what standard they use to figure how many which nation gets, but...

...for some reason Australia gets one.

You heard it right. My beloved adopted country, the one with large tracts of sand, dust, and really really REALLY homicidally annoyed kangaroos and drop bears who just want to be left alone and not chased by crazy tourists, gets just ONE lousy IS with respect to the entire population.

Okay, it's definitely true that Australia's population is too small to warrant a large number of IS. And it's somewhat true that most of the wildlife in-country is far deadlier than an IS (non-Australians think I'm joking when I tell them that wombats are capable of killing you in the most horrible way imaginable--by sitting on you).

But there's still the principle of the thing.

Put simply, Australia doesn't have a representative candidate in IS Academy, and by further extension we have absolutely no idea how or why that young japanese guy managed to put together such an impressive multinational team. We're the only major power in the region left in the dark.

"Where is this all leading?" I asked Sam aloud, though I hadn't meant to.

"One of those aforementioned representatives is arriving in Melbourne in a couple of days, to demonstrate their third-generation unit and exchange information," I heard his voice trail off. "I want you to stick to her like glue and get her talking about this Orimura Ichika person."

"Whowwhoawhoa, isn't that a field agent or case manager's job?" I was just an entry-level junior admin. I wasn't qualified for it.

Sam had this look on his face, the kind that said 'you're not my best choice, but better you than the box of lunatics I have in the basement.'

No choice but to agree here. If I did well, it was a sure promotion. If not, I could kiss my chances of being employed ever again down the drain.

"Go to Melbourne, check. Quiz them about their classmate, check."

"And WHATEVER you do, don't piss them off," Sam gave me stern warning. "These are teenagers wearing weapons of mass destruction. I don't want to wake up one morning trying to explain to the Prime Minister why there's a giant hole where her home town used to be."

"Wow." Despite myself, I couldn't help but smirk. "So do you want me to take her on a date? Is that something I can put on the government tab?"

"I don't care how it's done. Keep her entertained. Pleased. Well fed. NOT angry," He started showing signs of a typical Italian male in middle age--swinging his arms around in frustration wanting to strangle someone. "...HAPPY for lack of a better word!"

"Done," I agreed, though not without a modicum of doubt. "So, who am I meeting tomorrow?"

"The pilot candidate you will speak to is the IS Representative for China, Fan Lin Yin."

...I have undeniable proof that God exists. He really does.

He's a TV sitcom writer.

I'm surprised that none of you are surprised that it's NOT Charu I was going to write about...?

Haha, I knew you wouldn't, don't underestimate me, the Newtype-Ninja-Combat-Baker *insertmynamehere*

What I'm surprised about is writing it in Australia, well, it's not like I could write mine in the Philippines,

we wouldn't even get one IS, amirite?

I admit I didn't write the character as myself, but then, would Light Yagami fit into IS?

- Technicality. Australia supplies raw materials (such as Iron and=controversially Uranium) to Japan and China. And while China hasn't sent weapons to us for joint exercises, they are more than willing to share some bits of technology with us (thought it';s more them learnign from Aussies ofrom where I see it) ...So in terms of realism and believability that's perfectly plausible.

Iya, what I meant was, well, I'd think people would avoid writing something like this with their own country as the setting

or something like that.

As for the fic, it would be interesting to see someone write Laura into theirs, I just don't see her as the dating type, really

- There's no reason for any of the representative candidates to turn up in the Philippines.

As I said, it was more plausible for an IS representative to turn up in Australia than for someone like myself to turn up in Japan in general--and IS Academy in particular. Also, the way the 'date' is set up works a bit better than other possible (Ichika as a friend, or losing a bet, or somehow the girl beign polite and acceptign your date---no, that'd only work with Charu and only if she takes pity on you)...

- The balance between male and female in military power wouldn't be as skewed as it is
- How do you explain away giant mecha, anyway?

If you're trying to keep the story in-universe, you're going to have todo a bit of due diligence and find out what the loopholes are that allow you to put these kinds of things in...

...or you could do like Kamen Rider Decade and just mess things up because you just waltzed in from an alternate universe...

There are about a couple others out there on the loose but the AC to IS ratio is heavily lopsided in the IS's favor. The other ravens are not exactly interested in taking over the world. just being mercenaries working for the biggest credit. The problem is finding who would hire them so they turned to a dirty living being petty warlords.

And in my case of ACs in the world, thanks to the openess of the alaska treaty, they took minaturization tech to allow smaller AC for the same combat potential, of course not everything could be used. The best they have do is make ACs smaller, they are only slightly bigger than an IS while retaining many traits of an AC. The only benefit of the doubt is the ravens are augmented with the OP-I, giving them improved capabilities at the potential cost of sanity.

Fun thing, I ALREADY inserted Wanzers from Front Mission Series in my Crossover

Spoiler for Lol:


Hey, you don't say we ditched those fancy technology that easily cost a whole corporation (I look at you, Dunois) don't you .

EDIT: And for some reason, Australian Wanzer shown up in Japan...AARGHH!!! MUST MAKE AN EXCUSE!!!

^ An IS is way too broken to be beaten by an Armored Core, there would have to be a hundred, in the air, with nukes.

Now, I've gone and done a new fic (the date one).

Cuz well, the last one I did wasn't very good, so I tried to make a better one.

The key word being 'tried'.

Well, here it is, for better or for worse:

Infinite Stratos:
Kamizame: the Newtype-Ninja-Combat-Baker


I know right?

Okay, so I tried to make him ore like me, well, these are the unfortunate results.

Still, feedback would be welcome.

Don't worry, my M-tendencies will kick in, give your worst.
