I would, but I thought a casual day out would fit better with Athena's current atmosphere.

I appreciate the suggestion though.

-I can't believe I actually stayed up so late, I think imma get some sleep for a bit-

But before sleep...

Here's a scene

@age: So the engineer can accelerate to third year even though her IS piloting skills are pretty bad?

@ Demi
... it's just a demonstration of "Nice guy no more"

(The again Ichika is going to break the NECK if Dan and Rin don't stop him there)

@Yachi
Well some of us prefer make things dark and edgy

EDIT: Yachi refer to us logging in in the first day of the new year LOL.

Go ahead if you want to write it, I'm not responsible for that, period.

Ichika is the Atoner here....borderline Karma Houdini even, still I'm not going to make him crazy sadistic murderer.

Too lazy to write. I don't do well with character interactions.

EDIT: How bad are the complications of an unclean break in the bones? As in fragments are scattered inside the body.

Can cause muscular and vascular rupture. Risk of infection, necrosis and all weird stuff ended with amputation.

Hence the reason of urgent correction and fragment removal surgery.

Partial. Not anywhere near done.

...not helped by the fact that I snuck a look at the latest issue of the Gunslinger Girl manga in order to gain inspiration for writing more of [Ren]'s storyline and was racked by further depression.
Spoiler for Gunslinger Girl-related, not IS-related:


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

July 3

There was just enough evidence to make it stick, Haruko thought as she confirmed her information. Alone again in the apartment, she was finishing up her report on the recent incident.

The man whom [Ren] had cornered had been put under arrest on illegal firearms possession charges, a moderate offence under Japanese law. Kokuto had found the man had a previous history of stalking female students, despite never being convicted.

What bothered her was [Ren]’s unwillingness to share any information about the matter. There were no file records or notes left about the matter, and Kokuto was unable to find any record of [Ren] ordering a dozen tracing chips from Johohonbu HQ. If [Ren] was keeping track of what happened, Haruko was unable to find it on the computer they shared.

The door opened and closed, prompting the analyst to watch [Ren] enter the apartment. The girl seemed to betray no emotion at all as she entered wordlessly, tossing her baseball cap and jacket aside as she dropped onto her bed.

Haruko kept her awkward silence for a moment. There were plenty of questions she needed to ask, but she was sure none of them would be answered. At least, not with a straight face.

“I’ve ordered a bunk bed.” Kokuto blurted out, the words falling clumsily from her lips. “You can’t make me sleep on the floor for the rest of this assignment, you know.”

[Ren] did not seem to care. “Do whatever you want. It’s HQ’s money.”

“I want the bottom bunk.” Haruko paused only a second to wait, for a response that never came. She continued to explain her reasons, regardless of whether her partner cared to know. “And a proper table, too. You can’t expect me to eat or read at this tiny desk.”

[Ren] still gave no response. Haruko could see he girl’s eyes were open, even though she lay on the bed as if sleeping. She wondered if [Ren] slept like a snake did, with her eyes open the whole time. The analyst then tried another angle of conversation.

“About that guy you cornered? They managed to get the firearms charge to stick.”

“Spit it out.” [Ren] impatiently replied, suddenly sitting bolt upright on the bed. The eyes fixed onto Kokuto like a viper ready to strike. “What are you REALLY asking me?”

And there we have it. Kokuto bit her tongue, mainly to keep from speaking her immediate thoughts aloud. There weren’t many questions to ask, but she decided on the one that bothered her the most. “Orimura Ichika. Why are you so fixated on him?”

[Ren] did not respond, other than looking away. A few seconds passed before Haruko realised that it was an affirmative response.

“You’ve met him before, haven’t you?”

“Aren’t you a genius.” [Ren] still did not look at her. For the first time since they’d met, Haruko found her partner trying to avoid her gaze. Like how a snake avoided the gaze of one superior to it. “There are things you don’t need to know.”

“I’m supposed to be your support. I can’t support you if you’re not level with me.”

[Ren] took her time in answering. “You’re treading dangerous ground.”

“Bite me.” To the best of Haruko’s knowledge, they were not to make personal contact with Orimura in any way. The whole point of the assignment was to protect that individual from threats most people were blissfully unaware of. “When did meet him?”

“Before I joined the Johohonbu.”

Not accelerate but seriously I believe that it is still possible to progress to 3rd year from 2nd year as part of the Maintenance Branch.

Edit: Maintenance Branch can be taken from 2nd year onwards....

Don't forget: They need to study the entire manual of IS(which they usually do, unlike Ichika) before they can enter ISA.... and I think they still need to take an entrance exam before they could enter IS....(Ichika is an exception because he is the only male pilot)

which means their knowledge on IS are at least decent enough to learn how to do maintenance on IS....

Probably the first year is the "sorting" year where they try to separate those who are good at piloting and those who aren't, to save time (on training those with poor piloting) and number of IS (less pilots means more time for better pilots to train)

Hmm.... I could already saw where is this going. This also virtually blocked "Male I.S. Engineer" Route. Damn.

Could you think a scenario that such route is possible even with this class-branching stuff? Fanon is okay, I need it.

Two possibility:

1. Somebody who is already in Engineering Department before the IS is introduced (Cite as having more experience)

2. An IS engineer Before the first batch of graduates from Maintenance branch.....(Maintenance branch could be recent thing which begins a year or two before Ichika enter ISA...)

Edit: *(For the second one, it is due to not having any female IS engineer yet.)

MOAR Edit: Either way, the Engineer had to be experienced enough to stay in employment....

Well, IMO, engineers don't really need to be able to pilot an IS. All they need is a someone who's willing relay to them how an IS works, what can be done to improve/change its capabilities/specs.

If someone really would like to see a male IS engineer, they can pretty much make it such that he only does maintenance but cannot pilot it.

The only combat value that would have for the male engineer is that he will know just about every weakness/notable strengths the particular IS unit has.

Also Zero, how does my arcade draft look?

*Cough*gender discrimination*cough*

The unable to pilot is an excuse why female are hired instead of male...

And plus: HOW in the world is the male is going to learn about something as advance as IS when they don't teach them in normal school?

Edit: By something, I means the basic of IS operation and maintaince....

The learning part could probably subverted if there's someone kind enough to teach them voluntarily. Doesn't have to be in school where they learn stuffs, right?

The only thing that irks me is the gender discrimination part, but I suppose I can understand that.

Not that I'm planning any male engineers story... yet.
