So Sthenno doesn't trust Schneizel anymore. That's pretty much signing his death warrant unless he can figure out a way to out-maneuver her.

 

Akira and Fong seem to at least be getting along on the battlefield. Maybe Li will stop being a jerk and go back to the way he used to be.

 

Hopefully Suzaku and Nunnally can escape Euryale and I wonder who this Enoch guy is.


 

Thank you DeaconPhenix but I have to admit that your fight scenes in your Bleach fanfiction are magnificent...the creme de la creme and I mean that sincerely. :smileyhappy:

 

Things are going to get a wee bit more complicated before they iron out and the story gets moving even faster...but I'll not spoil it for you guys/gals. :smileywink:

Eurayle and Medusa squabbling was great, making it even better when Sthenno flips out.

 

I think Schneizel is now what we non-Britannians call "screwed".    :smileyvery-happy:

 

Wow, the Taiwanese orphange was really terrible!  Is is just me, or did Lena not appear in this chapter (aside from being mentioned)?  Fong's a jerk, and I'm naming myself president of Akira's fanclub.

 

What a cliffhanger indeed!  I have a feeling that neither Suzaku nor Nunnally are going to find anything pleasant at Kamine Island.  Oh shiz.

 

Great work Kodai-kun!  Looking forward to the next turn!!


 

Thank you anime_goddess-Chan.

 

While I think I excel at writing Science-Fiction/Adventure I can't hold a candle to your ability to write drama/romance.  You've got the knack for it dear.  Your Christmas Carol episode was great and I would never have been able to write a scene like that.

I draw on my real life experiences in the military for my action writing, so I'm kinda lost when it comes to hard-core romance which I'd like to be able to write. :smileysad:

So I'm a bit jealous of your talent...but in a good way :smileytongue:

You inspire me to try harder as does Deacon with his character interactions and situations as well as his vivid scenery (another point I need to work on). :smileyhappy:

 

As for Lena's lack of a real role in this Turn; that was due to her getting some time in the last one while everybody else kinda did nothing.  She and Mika will have greater roles as this fanfiction progresses but for now I'm concentrating on the original CG characters and Akira/Fong who will be real busy in Chapter 12/13.

 

I started the next chapter tonight.

 

It is called Turn Eleven: Schneizel's Plan and may be ready by Sunday IF I can finish drawing the Lancelot of the Lake which makes its debut in this Chapter.

I totally can't wait. It's been really good so far, and I wish this could actually be made into a third season for the anime it's just that good. I'm already salivating over turns 11, 12, and 13. By the way, do you have all this planned out till turn 25 or are you just winging it, you don't have to answer that question if you don't want to :smileyhappy:

So, we got the Code Geass writing master here. If you guys are interested in the parallel of that in the Bleach universe, stop by my thread and check out the story. Nah I'm no master but hopefully its half as good as this story. And yes I was advertising on your page Kodai :smileyhappy:

I have to get help from my best friend (who's a guy) when it comes to the action parts, so I'm jealous that you can write them so well.  I'll probably become something of a student of yours and maybe get better at it from reading your fic.

Looking forward to the next turn!  We seem to be keeping up on our schedules very well.  Yay us!

CODE GEASS

DIRGE OF DAEDALUS

 

Turn Eleven: Schneizel's Plan (Part 1)

 


 

            "The scale and magnitude of Charles Zi Britannia's plans were rivaled only by those of his son Schneizel.  Before the reign of Emperor Lelouch, Schneizel had his father's utmost confidence and trust and thus had at his disposal the resources of all of Britannia and much of the world.  Schneizel had always plotted to unseat his father, of that I am sure.  Many were the nights that I overheard Lady Marianne bickering with Charles over how lax he was with Schneizel and how Schneizel's lust for power would someday be the 98th Emperor's undoing.  Little did Lady Marianne realize how right she was or how far and wide Schneizel's ultimate plan extended.  Schneizel was a master strategist, and like his brother Lelouch, knew that the world could not be won in a single battle, conflict, or war, but rather a series of such events were required to claim a total global victory."-Excerpt from an interview with Jeremiah Gottwald by JBS [Japan Broadcasting Station] senior special-news correspondent Milley Ashford during their flight to Japan on the Ikaruga dated July 30th 2024 a.t.b.   

 


 

            "Tahiti is quite a place," Kallen said to Gino as she lay upon a foldable beach-chair on the sands of the Island dressed in a white two-piece bikini.  It had been two days since the Avalon arrived at the small island and their ship was now replenished with food and supplies.

            "Don't get too comfortable," Gino smiled as he handed her a piña colada dripping with condensation in the tropical heat of the island.

            Kallen took the glass from him and drew a long draught from the straw of her cocktail, "Mmm...That is good." She smacked her lips and smiled at him. "What nothing for you?" Kallen eyed Gino's glass of coconut juice.

            "Nah, I'm not big on alcoholic drinks," Gino laughed as he pulled up a chair next to hers. "Besides, how can I woo you if I'm drunk off my tush?"

             "Oh is that how it is?" Kallen snickered as she eyed his tanned muscular body that was covered only at his waist and groin by his skimpy swim-shorts. "Trying to get me to drink so you can have your way with me huh?" Kouzuki rolled her eyes. "Typical male...what do you think Anya?" Kallen called out to where Lt. Alstreim was standing at the edge of the beach with her hands shading her eyes as she looked out towards the horizon.

            Anya turned to Kallen, "I think we're about to be attacked."

            No sooner had the girl said the words did the alarm claxons from the aerial frigate above them sound off.

            "Oh just great!" Kallen said jumping up out of her chair and discarding her drink.

            Gino grabbed her hand and pulled her along with him as he raced towards where Tamaki sat fishing off of the wing of the aerial shuttle they had come there in.

            "Tamaki start the engines!" Gino yelled as Anya caught up to him and Kallen.

            "What?" Tamaki asked as his fishing line started to pull.

            "START THE FRIGGIN PLANE YOU JACKASS!!" Kallen yelled at him. "Can't you hear the sirens?"

            Tamaki gave them a befuddled look and pulled the headphones off of his head. "Oh crap!" He exclaimed.  Tamaki dropped his fishing rod and ran into the craft as he heard the wail of the alarm from the Avalon.

            Kallen and the others piled into the little ship right behind Tamaki.

            The four of them were inside the aircraft in moments just as the sun's light began to glare off of a silhouette of a large aerial warship coming over the horizon.

 


 

            "The Avalon is in sight Prince Schneizel." A female lieutenant said on the bridge of the Thor. "Shall we fire on her sir?"

            "No," he said standing up. "Fire near her like you're trying to hit her, but don't damage the ship."

            Schneizel smiled as he watched the Avalon on the overhead monitor.  His Lieutenant gave the order to fire and the cannons of the aerial-battleship spewed forth a hail of artillery shells towards the vicinity of the Avalon.  The volley showered the coastal town below the air-frigate it with barrage after barrage of deadly exploding rounds; leveling much of the ocean-village in the process and killing many of the inhabitants.

 


 

            "How could they?" Cecile was mortified. "These people have done nothing wrong."

            "Yes, but that's really never stopped Schneizel before," Lloyd adjusted his glasses. "I suppose if we want to stop him from killing these poor islanders we had better get out to sea."

            "But we'll be sitting ducks out there," Kannon warned.

            "No," Nina contradicted him as she analyzed the placement of the bombardment from the Thor. "They haven't used their Hadron cannons and their artillery rounds are falling short of hitting us."

            "Which means?" Kannon asked her.

            Cecile glared out at the large battleship, "They don't want to hit us."

            "Correct," Nina nodded. "We're being driven out away from the Island."

            "Have Kallen and the others returned yet?" Lloyd asked changing the subject.

            "Yes, but what makes you ask Lloyd?" Cecile wondered what good four Devicers could do against the Thor.

            "We've completed repairs on their Type-21s and those machines are fully charged." Lloyd shrugged his shoulders, "Perhaps we should have them act as cover for us while we escape."

            "LLOYD!" Cecile gritted her teeth. "Are you suggesting we sacrifice them?"

            "No, no," he said putting up his arms defensively. "Those fighters are supersonic; they can outrun the Thor quite easily.  I was only suggesting that we have Kallen and her team attack the Thor while we build up speed to escape and then they can rendezvous with us later."

            Cecile smiled at him, "That's not a bad idea Professor Asplundh."  

            "Really?" Lloyd said putting his arms down.

            Cecile turned to Nina and Kannon, "The deck crew of Avalon has never dealt with the Type-21 before.  Nina, do you think the two of you can help prep those fighters for immediate launch?"

            "No problem," Kannon said with a smile. "I've read the manual for the Type-21S a few times over."

            "You have?" Nina looked at him with surprise. "Where?"

            Kannon gave her a devilish grin, "While lying in Kallen Kouzuki's bed on the Thor."

            Nina gave him a jealous scowl, "What were you doing in Captain Kouzuki's bed?"

            Kannon only smiled.

            "Oh Nina," Lloyd said pulling out a small box from his lab-coat.

            "Yes Professor Asplundh?" She asked, curious as to what else he wanted.

            He smiled at her, "Don't forget your contact-lenses."

            She took the small box from him, "Thank you Lloyd."

 


 

            Kallen jumped into the cockpit of her Type-21S Shogun, still wearing her bikini, and pressed the touchscreen console in front of her.  Instantly the machine came to life and the cockpit-canopy lowered down.  The smell of ionized air filled the hangar deck as the whine of the graviton impellors came up to a roar.

            "Alright Yamato no Orochi, you all know what to do." Kallen said as her KnightMare Frame was raised onto the launch catapult.  "It's payback time!" Kouzuki pushed the throttle forward and her fighter screamed away from the Avalon.

            In seconds all four Type-21s were flying in formation together.

            "How do you want to do this Kallen?" Gino asked.

            "Diamond formation from above," Kouzuki said as she monitored the Thor. "They've already raised their shields so we'll have to dive-bomb them with a hail of Gejhun missiles."

            "You actually think we've got enough firepower to knock their shields down for long?" Tamaki scoffed.

            "No," Kallen conceded. "But they'll be down long enough for us to do some damage to their weapons."

            "We should concentrate on the long-range heavy dorsal cannons," Anya suggested as the flight of four Type-21s flew high above the Thor.

            "Agreed," Kallen said.

 


           

            "The Avalon is moving out over the ocean Prince Schneizel," one of the female Lieutenants informed him.

            Schneizel smiled, "Very good."

            "My Lord," a blonde haired tactical officer blurt out. "Four KnightMares have launched from the enemy vessel.  I think they're Type-21s."

            Schneizel sniggered, "Excellent.  Launch a squadron of our Vincent-Wards and then move us into a parallel course with the Avalon."

            The female tactical officer hesitated, "But sir, we won't be able to use our Hadron cannons if we fly parallel to them."

            Schneizel raised his brow, "What makes you think I plan on using the Hadron cannons on them?"

            "If we aren't going to destroy them Prince Schneizel, then why are we bothering with them?" The blonde haired Lieutenant asked.

            "Because we're here to pick up a package," he tittered.

 


 

            "Looks like we're finally leaving the Polynesian Islands," Nina said as she looked out one of the viewports in the dorsal hangar.

            "Indeed we are," Kannon said to her as he came up behind her.  "We're leaving this ship as well."

            "What?" Nina turned to face him.

            Kannon stood pointing a pistol at her, "Please Nina, I don't want to hurt you, but you must come with me now."

            Nina looked at him and gasped at the red-orange ring in his eyes, "Oh no...Kannon, you don't know what you're doing."

            "I'm sorry Nina," He waved the gun in the direction of the shuttle Kallen and the others had used earlier. "Get inside that aerial courier NOW!"

            Nina knew that under the power of Geass Kannon would do what ever it is he was ordered to by the person that had control over him. "Try to fight it Kannon...you must!"

            Kannon forced her over to the shuttle and opened the door. "Get inside."

            "Hey you there, what do you think you're doing?" A flight technician asked coming over to where Nina and Kannon stood.

           "Run!" Nina yelled at the man but it was too late.  Kannon turned and shot the man in the chest four times; killing him.

            Nina grabbed for the gun in Kannon's hand but Maldini was too fast for her.  He allowed her to lunge forward in front of him then he hit her on the back of the head with the pistol; knocking her out instantly and breaking her glasses as they hit the metal floor.

            Kannon loaded Nina onto the shuttle and started the machine's engines.  The next moment the aircraft burst out of the hangar bay of the Avalon towards the Thor.

 


 

            "Hey Kallen a shuttle just launched from the Avalon," Tamaki said as they dove in for their attack run.

            "Nothing we can do about it now," She replied as a flight of twenty Vincent-Wards flew out from the bottom of the ship.

            "We've got company!" Gino blurt out.

            "Ignore them," Kouzuki told her team. "We need to disarm the Thor if we're to have any chance of making a clean get away."

            "There are too many to just ignore them Kallen," Anya said as she fired a salvo of energy discs from the nose mounted gunpod of her fighter.  The radiant-heat projectiles tore through two of the Vincent-Wards; destroying them.

            "Fine," Kouzuki said in irritation. "But just take down the ones you have to for a clear shot with your missiles and make darn sure you use your Gejhun warheads on only the Thor."

            "Understood," Her teammates replied in unison.

 


 

            "Who is on that shuttle?" Cecile asked the hangar deck-officer via the monitor in front of her.

            "We believe Kannon Maldini has taken Professor Einstein by force," The man replied over the viewscreen.  "Yeoman Maldini killed a member of my team during his escape."

            "Well now we know what Schneizel was after," Lloyd said matter-of-factly.

            "We can't just let him have her Lloyd!" Cecile barked at him.

            "What do you expect us to do?" He mused. "It's not like this ship can take on the Thor.  It's simply a matter of firepower."

            "No it isn't," Cecile said with a gleam in her eye. "He doesn't have that shuttle just yet."  Cecile opened up a radio channel to Kallen.

 


 

            "You want us to what?" Kallen said as she felled another Vincent-Ward with the forward firing Hadron Cannons of her fighter.

            "We need you to capture that shuttlecraft as quickly as you can," Cecile's voice emphasized the urgency of the situation. "Nina's on that thing with Kannon."

            "Well why the hell did they leave the ship?" Kallen asked as she dodged a hail of cannon fire from another Vincent-Ward.

            "We don't know," Cecile told her over the communicator. "But I have a hunch that Geass is behind this somehow."

            "I wouldn't doubt it," Kouzuki responded with a scowl. Kallen changed frequencies, "alright guys listen up, we've got to intercept that courier plane and bring it back in one piece."

            Tamaki balked, "How the hell are we supposed to do that with all these KnightMares firing on us, not too mention the Thor?"

             "I've got an idea," Gino said.

            "Let's hear it," Kallen invited any suggestions at this point.

            "We should knock out the shields of the Thor and finish our run as planned, then break off as quickly as possible towards the shuttle." Gino knocked out another Vincent-Ward with his gunpod then continued. "After that we can disable the courier and fly it back to the Avalon."

            "Sounds like it could work," Anya said in her dry monotone while she finished off another of the Vincent-Wards.

            "I'm in," Tamaki chimed.

            "Okay, let's do it," Kallen said as she let loose with a full salvo of Gejhun missiles at the top of the Thor.  The hail of torpedoes impacted the multifaceted green shielding of the warship and dissolved a large portion of it.

            The other Black Knights rained down a volley of the anti-shield projectiles upon the battleship; knocking down the rest of the ship's energy protection.

            Kallen transformed her fighter into KnightMare mode and flew down next to the port-side dorsal main cannon.  She pressed the top button of the left control stick with her thumb which caused the front half of the gunpod of her fighter to close shut and extend out like a police-baton.  Kallen drove the tip of her gunpod onto the side of the turret and pulled the gunpod trigger on her control stick.  The tip of the gunpod unit radiated a heat wave into the large cannon just like the clawed hand of the Guren MKII would have done causing the turret to rupture and explode under the pulse of intense energy.

            Gino did likewise to the starboard turret while Anya and Tamaki felled the aft mounted long range dual barrel artillery piece.   

            "Let's get that shuttle!" Kallen commanded as her Shogun flew off the top of the Thor and transformed back into fighter mode; her three companions were right behind her.

 


 

            Schneizel gripped the side of his command chair to steady himself and keep from falling down.

            "They've destroyed our long range cannons!" The blonde haired tactical officer shouted.  The woman looked perplexed as she studied the screen in front of her. "Prince Schneizel the Type-21s have broken off their attack and are speeding away from us."

            Schneizel held a blank expression, "Launch all of our Gareth KnightMares after them and tell our Devicers not to attack anything in the area but the Type-21s." He knew where the four fighters were headed.

            "All of our Gareths sir?" The girl inquired unnerved by the intensity of his order.

            "That is what I said my dear." He told the Lieutenant in an icy tone.

            "Aye sir," She replied obediently.

CODE GEASS

DIRGE OF DAEDALUS

 

Turn Eleven: Schneizel's Plan (Part 2)

 

 


 

            The Yamato no Orochi flew towards the courier shuttle at great speed and transformed in unison as they came to within a hundred yards of the plane.

            "Kannon stop!" Gino ordered him over the radio as they matched the speed of the shuttle and came up along side it.

            "I'm afraid I can't do that," Maldini replied as he swerved the shuttle towards the waves of the ocean below in an effort to avoid capture.

            "Why are you doing this Kannon?" Anya asked him.

            "Because it is the will of my Prince," Kannon responded in a mechanical tone.

            "Is that why you came here Kannon; to kidnap your friend for Schneizel?" Kallen tried to reason with him hoping he would hesitate long enough for her to grab hold of the shuttlecraft with her Shogun.

            "No...I..." The orange glow in Kannon's eyes flickered causing him to let go of the ship's controls as he struggled with his deep feelings for Nina and the command Schneizel had given him. "I...I must obey Schneizel."

            "I've got them Kallen," Tamaki said as he flew towards the shuttle with a burst of speed. His KnightMare came up and grabbed the top of the ship just as a Hadron bolt slammed into the side of his Type-21.

            "Yahhhhhhhh!" Tamaki yelled as his fighter fell from the sky.

            "Tamaki!" Kallen's Shogun raced to grab hold of her old friend's machine.

            "Don't you guys have something better to do?" Gino shouted at the mass of Gareth KMFs that were rapidly closing in on them.  Gino blasted two of the swarm of sixty mecha out of the sky with a salvo from his gunpod.

            "We need to give Captain Kouzuki some cover," Anya said as she cut down three Gareths and dodged a hail of Hadron bolts.

            Captain Kouzuki's Shogun caught Tamaki's Bushido right before it hit the ocean surface. 

            "You alive in there?" she asked as her KnightMare skimmed over the ocean waves causing a spray to kick up behind them.

            "It'll take more than that to take me out," he joked.

            "Good thing your shields were up. I don't think your Bushido suffered any damage," Kallen said as they dodged out of the way of a swarm of missiles. She fired a barrage of Hadron bolts from the shoulder mounted cannons of her Shogun at the offending Gareths. "We'd better get back after Kannon."

            "Thanks Kallen," He replied sheepishly.

            "Don't mention it," She said as they boosted up towards the battle above them.

            Gino blasted another Gareth out of the air, "There's too many of them!" He just barely rolled out of the way of a barrage of Hadron cannon fire only to have a swarm of missiles impact the omni-directional absolute defense shields of his Samurai.

             Anya swerved her KnightMare out of the way of a salvo of missiles and shot them down with her Samurai's forearm Hadron cannons. "Our shields can't take this punishment forever and the shuttle is getting away from us."

            "I can see that," Kallen said as she tried to penetrate the screen of KnightMare units, but the Gareth pilots were getting better at avoiding their attacks while still keeping them at bay.

 


 

           

            "Prince Schneizel, a small aerial shuttlecraft is approaching and hailing us," His brunette communications officer said without emotion.

            Schneizel smiled, "Very good Ensign, put him through."

            Kannon's face appeared on the main viewscreen, "I have what you ordered me to acquire Prince Schneizel."

            "Excellent work my friend," Schneizel stated warmly. "Kannon, you are to proceed to the main hangar immediately.  I'll inform the deck-officer to open the primary ventral hatch and allow your courier to land."

            "Thank you Prince Schneizel," Kannon spoke mechanically. "I look forward to seeing you in person again soon."

            "And I you," He said with a grin.

            "Kannon out," the Yeoman's visage disappeared off of the screen.

            Schneizel turned his attention to his tactical officer, "You may now bring the ship about and fire the Hadron cannons at the Avalon."

 


 

 

            "Kallen the Thor is changing course and pointing in our direction," Tamaki bellowed as he riddled a Gareth with energy discs from the gunpod of his Type-21B.

            "It looks like they're preparing to fire their Hadrons!" Gino said.

            "There's no way the Avalon can survive a hit from a full barrage of the Thor's main batteries," Anya added.

            "I know, but what the hell can we do about it," Kouzuki gritted her teeth in frustration.  She knew they'd never get through the swarm of Gareths fast enough to stop Schneizel from obliterating the Avalon.  Kallen thought as fast as she could but nothing came to mind.  "Dammn it!" She cursed out loud while she maneuvered her fighter through the battlespace in order to dodge another barrage of Hadron bolts from a flight of Gareths.  "We can't lose here...we just can't-"

            A flash of green caught her eye diving through the clouds from above them.  "What the?" Kallen blurt out in surprise as two of the Gareth KnightMare Frames that pursued her were reduced to molten slag by a pair of recoilless cannon rounds.

            "Is that you down there Captain Kouzuki?" a man's voice asked over the radio.

            "Rivaltz?" Kallen asked forcing down a lump of relief in her throat.

            "Hey, that's Major Ashford to you Ma'am," he laughed as his squadron of twenty Type-21Os ripped through the Gareth KnightMares.

            "Major Ashford you need to stop the Thor!" Anya yelled over the radio.

            "Don't sweat it Anya," Rivaltz said nonchalantly. "General Xingke has that situation in hand."

            A stream of artillery scale Hadron energy rushed past them towards the Thor.

 


 

 

            "We've been hit!" The blonde tactical officer screamed as the Thor shook under the onslaught of Hadron energy.

            Li Xingke's image appeared on the overhead viewer, "Surrender Schneizel or we'll blow you out of the sky."

            "Cornelia," Schneizel tittered softly to himself, "Not bad my sister."  He looked up at Xingke, "I'm afraid you're not in a position to demand my surrender." Schneizel made a cutting motion with his hand to his communications officer and Xingke disappeared from the screen as the transmission was shut off.

            "Sir there is a fleet of thirty airships coming over the Island of Tahiti, they appear to be in attack formation and are targeting our location with their weapons." The tactical officer stated in a worried tone.

            Schneizel smirked, "Don't worry about them.  Please tell me how badly are we damaged?"

            "We've sustained moderate damage to our portside hull armor, but that is all right now sir." The girl said.

            Schneizel humpfed at the thought of Cornelia outwitting him by luring Xingke's UFN fleet to this area, "Order our Gareths to withdraw at once."

            "What about the Avalon sir?" The woman inquired.

            Schneizel spoke smoothly, "Aim just to the starboard of her and fire all Hadrons at Mont Orohena."

            "But the volcano will explode!" The woman gasped.

            "Precisely," Schneizel smiled.

 


 

 

            The UFN armada cruised at five-thousand feet above the Island of Tahiti.  The main batteries of the various types of airships began moving into position as their gunnery crews fine-tuned their barrels to fire the long-range bombardment against the Thor.

            "Kallen," Rivaltz radioed her. "We need to withdraw at once.  The UFN fleet is about to fire on the Thor with everything they've got and we're in the crossfire position."

            "Roger that Major Ashford," Captain Kouzuki said as she and her three teammates transformed into jet mode.  The Yamato no Orochi flew up into formation with Rivaltz's squadron of Outbackers.

            "The Thor just fired her main Hadron Cannons!" Gino yelled over the radio.

            Kallen turned around and looked out the canopy of her fighter just in time to see the triple-blast of Hadron energy slam into the base of Mont Orohena.  In the next moment the active volcano erupted into a massive plume of smoke and ash; sending chunks of molten lava hundreds of feet into the air and causing a dense screen of debris that made it nearly impossible to see.

            "That son of a **BLEEP**!" Tamaki swore out loud.

            "Kallen, Schneizel is getting away, we should pursue him immediately." Anya said in a frantic tone.

            "There's no way the fleet can find them in this volcanic plume," Rivaltz said. "We'll just have to wait until we can clear this cloud."

            "No, we've got to capture the Thor now!" Kallen said frantically as the realization of Schneizel's victory sank into her psyche.

            "What's the rush?" Rivaltz was taken a back by Kallen's outburst. "We'll get him eventually."  

            Kallen's frustration caused her voice to crack, "We can't wait Rivaltz...Schneizel has got Nina!"

            Major Ashford looked down at the large mass of volcanic smoke unable to see the Thor but knowing that the ship was speeding away to parts unknown with a person he considered to be one of his closest friends.  "Nina," Rivaltz whispered to himself.

 


 

 

            "We need to move quickly and quietly," Enoch said to Nunnally and Suzaku.

            Painful as it was to crouch on her cybernetic legs, Nunnally did her best to keep up with the two men as they slowly made their way through the dimly lit KnightMare museum.  The sun had set hours ago and the museum had closed but the security systems of the place were horribly lax for a facility which held two FLEIJA warheads.  The idea had been to conceal the weapons in plain sight with obscurity being the best security against theft.

           "There are two guards at the base of theLancelot of the Lake," Suzaku said as he looked over at the large machine.  It was basically the Lancelot Albion with the wing system removed and replaced by a pair of Cecile Croomy's version of Rakshata's Graviton Impellor wings with a Hyper-Velocity Bazooka mounted on each Impellor pod in the same manner as the Type-21O Outbacker.

            "It's impressive," Suzaku said in exhilaration at the thought of piloting Lancelot again.

            "Yes it is," Enoch said as he looked over to where a reconstructed specimen of the pink Lancelot-Frontier stood.  A dim blue LED light flashed twice from behind the left leg of the pink-KnightMare. Enoch pulled out a small LED penlight from his coat pocket and flashed three pulses back at the light source.

            "A friend?" Nunnally whispered to Enoch.

            "Yes," He smiled at her.

           Nunnally sensed that there was something more to his smile than he told her causing her to **BLEEP** her head in curiosity. "Who is this person?"

            "The Red Dragon," he told her. "The Lancelot of the Lake only has room for two.  Thus you and Suzaku will be going on it while she and I travel in that Lancelot-Frontier."

            Nunnally looked hard at Enoch, "Who is...she?"

            "Don't worry about her," Enoch said with a smile. "She's my great-granddaughter whom I nursed back to life and healed during the dark days of the Black Rebellion.  You don't have to be concerned about her loyalty, she would never betray us."

            "Looks like those two guards are practically asleep," Suzaku said at the front of the line. "We should move now."

            "No Suzaku wait!" Enoch called out to him but it was too late.

            Suzaku leapt up at the first guard and did his signature dual spin-kick at the man.  The lithe male guard bent over backwards in a martial arts flip and kicked at Suzaku; the guard's foot landing squarely into Suzaku's groin.

            Suzaku landed hard and held onto his manhood.

            The second guard went to hit Suzaku with his police-baton but was surprised by a figure wearing a mirror-visor red colored helmet (very similar to the one worn by Zero) with a plume of fiery-red hair streaming from the top-back of it nearly down to the floor. The figure wore a blood-red colored armored jumpsuit with pink highlights that held tightly to a figure that was clearly that of a woman's by the shape of her voluptuous body.  The woman launched a snap-kick at the guard with the baton which landed on the man's chin sending him reeling backwards to the floor; knocked out cold.

            The first guard came at her with a spin-kick but the woman blocked it with her gauntleted forearm and knocked the man unconscious with a round-house-kick to the head.

            "Are you alright?" The modulated electronic voice of the woman asked Suzaku as she extended her hand down to him.

            "I'm okay," he winced taking her delicate hand in his.

            "Red Dragon, we need to get out of here," Enoch told her.

            She nodded in reply as she helped Suzaku to his feet.

             Suzaku gave her a bewildered look as they made their way to the energy filler storage containers behind the two mecha. "You fight well."

            "Thank you," the electronic voice replied. "Grandfather taught me for years."

            "May I ask why you wear a mask?" Suzaku couldn't help but be curious of this female Zero who stood before him.

            "She was injured deeply during the Black Rebellion...and...scared horribly." Enoch said as he manned the automatic loaders and powered up both KnightMares.

            Nunnally grinned at Enoch over some private thought.  Suzaku could only look on at her with a confused expression and wonder what it was.

            "They're ready," Enoch said as he and the Red Dragon climbed onto the lift that led to the Lancelot-Frontier cockpit hatch.

            Suzaku helped Nunnally onto the other lift and steadied her as it rose to the open cockpit of the Lancelot of the Lake.

            Both couples entered their respective KnightMare Frames and inserted the keys to the machines.

            "You two ready over there?" Suzaku asked as Nunnally found a comfortable spot to sit down behind his Devicer seat.

            "As we'll ever be," Enoch replied.

            "Then let's do this," Suzaku said with renewed confidence despite the pain between his legs.

 


 

           

            "I can't believe we are almost too Japan," Lena said excitedly as she held onto Akira's arm.  The two of them were standing on the observation promenade of the Ikaruga looking out over the Island of Okinawa.

            "We should be in Tokyo in a few hours," Tetsuo said as he leaned on the railing near them. 

            "Can you believe it's only been a little over a month since we left?" Mika mused.

            "Seems like years," Gregor added as he rested next to Mika on the rail.

            "Do you guys think there'll be a battle here?" Tetsuo asked to his companions.

            "I'd say it's a guarantee Tetsuo," Villetta said as she walked out onto the deck with them.  "The UFN long range scouts we've been in contact with say that there's been a major battle near the Society Islands.  There have also been reports of a large air-fleet heading towards Japan from New Zealand."

            "Schneizel," Akira said bluntly.

            "Probably," Villetta said to him with indifference.  "According to Captain Chiba, the UFN is now at war with Britannia and the Principality of Brazil.  No doubt this is all a part of some elaborate plan by Schneizel now that he's allied with this new force of Geass users."

            "Japan is going to be the decisive battle again isn't it?" Lena lamented.

            "It sure looks that way," Villetta answered her with a sad expression.

            "What happened to your pride?" Li Jiang Fong said walking onto the deck. "You all act like we've been defeated already.  So long as we're alive we have a chance to beat this enemy, Geass or not, we have to fight them with everything we have and never give up."

            The others looked at him in awe of his change in demeanor.

            Fong nodded at Akira who smiled in return. "Together, we're unstoppable."

 


 

 

            "Where are you taking me?" Nina yelled at Schneizel in defiance as a contingent of four soldiers brought her to the bridge of the Thor.

            "Funny you should ask that question," He smiled upon seeing her enter the room. "I've brought you to my personal palace on Pitcairn Island." He gestured for the guards to release her so she could look out the viewports.

            Nina gave him a smug look, "I can't see anything without my contacts on."

            Schneizel waved his hand dismissively, "By all means Nina, put them on.  You're a guest here now."

            Nina took out the box that Lloyd had given her from her lab-coat and put the contact-lenses on.  Nina looked out the viewport. To Nina's amazement the center of the forty-seven square mile Island was a massive military-citadel comprised of what looked like refineries, power-stations, manufacturing centers, and heavy battlements armed with various types of weaponry.

            "Where did all this come from?" Nina knew that there was no way Schneizel could construct such a facility without a large number of workers and over a considerable period of time.

            "I had it built when you were only seven years old."  He gave her a wide grin, "Back during my haughty days of dreaming about usurping my father through a grand, and quite covert, plan.  I even created my own personal knighthood; The Order of the Silver-Cross; with which I planned on conquering the world.  Like all Imperial teenagers, it was a foolish, wasteful, and childish pursuit at the time.  However, when I first met Zero face to face in China I began contemplating the possibility of him being my brother Lelouch and thus a powerful rival for the throne of Britannia.  Therefore, I immediately set to rebuilding my Order of the Silver-Cross and reactivating this facility."

            "But how could you keep this place a secret?" Nina wasn't buying his explanation. "Surely the UFN knows of this place."

            Schneizel laughed, "Forgive me Nina but you must understand that this Island is in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean.  The UFN doesn't know of or care about this place, nor is it likely they would think it to be anything but a remote, insignificant, isle inhabited by Polynesians or Pirates even if they did know of it."     

            "I see," Nina looked down at the ocean below. "What is it you want of me Prince Schneizel?"

            "I need you to build me something," He said softly while walking up behind her.

            She clenched her fists, "I will never build you another FLEIJA!"

            Schneizel gently put his hand on her shoulder and whispered in her ear, "I would never ask you to Nina."

            Nina turned towards him; their faces only an inch apart, "Then what am I to build for you?"

            He looked into her eyes through his wire-rimmed sunglasses, "The FORGE I've heard so much about."

            She eyed him cautiously. "Why do you need me to build a FORGE here?  There are obviously power-plants on this Island, why is a FORGE so important?"

            He touched noses with her, "Because my dear Nina, your new reactor can generate all the power I require too implement my plan."

            "What is your plan?" Nina was shaking slightly as he leaned in towards her.

            He kissed her gently on the lips, "an end to War."

Also  :smileysurprised:  I totally know who's behind that mask!!

 

And poor Suzaku's manhood.   :smileyvery-happy:

 

Schneizel continues to creep me out.  You're portraying him similar to the way I plan to.  :smileyvery-happy:

 

Nice job!  Can't wait for the next turn!!!

Thank you anime_goddess-chan! :smileyhappy:

 

I'm happy you liked it.

 

The Kannon x Nina situation is only just getting started. :smileywink:

 

As for the KMFs in this one.  The Lancelot of the Lake is my drawing (from penciled graphic paper image to finish), the Lancelot Frontier is an offical image from MAHQ (probably scanned from one of the anime artbooks for the series).

The way I draw and color my images is as follows;

 

a) Research real-world armor types (mediaeval mostly), compare them to real-world Tanks, Battleships, small-arms, and other weapons.  Then I compose a basic idea on graph paper and draw over the image repeatedly until I get the look I want (makes a total mess of the paper too :smileytongue: )

 

b) When I'm satisfied with the image on the graph paper I secure it to a sheet of plain-white-copypaper (via a pair of paper-clips) and then use my Light-Table to trace it. 

 

c) When it's done being traced I remove the paper clips and ink it in with a Uni-ball .5 mm Micro pen (for thick lines) and a Precise-V5 Xfine (.35 mm) pen for fine lines.

 

d) After it's all inked I scan it into my computer and import it into Photoshop.

 

e) Once in Photoshop I save it as a Black and White Jpeg then create a new file using the Jpeg as Layer 1 and set it to the Multiply blending option.  Then I create a new layer over Layer 1 and set this Layer (layer 2) to the multiply setting which allows me to color over the Jpeg and make corrections without ever actually effecting the Black and White image below it.  Once the color layer is done I add a third layer over that (a shading layer) and set it to the Multiply blending setting.  I then use a light-gray (HTML COLOR: #D3D3D3) and the airbrush tool to make airbrush-type shading in all the right places (I also use the airbrush-tool in erase mode to help with this).  Finally I create a fourth layer that is a gradient-color layer and put this at the bottom of the layer-stack.  Then I erase everything that covers my color image thus giving the appearence of the gradient-layer being in the background.  The final touches are the Text (using the Text-tool) and a fifth layer (used for glowing, light, or canopy effects) set on the Hard Light Blending mode.

 

f) Once that's done I save the PSD file and create a Jpeg which flattens the entire image (I also add my personal watermark to the image).

 

g) The image is then resized for upload to my photobucket account.

 

That's the whole process which usually takes me about five to six hours total (sometimes longer if I get artist's-block and have trouble with the base image).

 

The How to Draw Manga series of books by the Japanese company Graphic Sha Publishing has been a big help.

ROFL @ Suzaku. I guess that's what he gets for trying that fancy spin kick crap. I think Schneizel has some kind of evil plan. I'm interested to learn more about this Enoch guy......and that girl. I wonder what Suzaku and Nunally will find at Lelouch's tomb when they go there. Anyways, can't wait for the next turn and that's amazing that you put so much work into your drawings, it really shows with the quality of them.

I meant to ask before about Rivalz.  He took Milly's last name?  (Not that that surprises me, LOL).

Thank you...Thank you. :smileyhappy:

 

Turn Twelve was started this evening and I should be able to have it by Saturday this week (no new images that I can think of...accept maybe the Argos, but spacecraft/airships are easy for me to draw so if it's in this chapter it shouldn't slow me down much).

 

Enoch is the Red Dragon's Great-Grandfather. :smileytongue:

Thank you anime_goddess-chan :smileyhappy:

 

Rivaltz took Milley's name because they are now both Japanese citizens and when they got married they did the traditional Japanese thing and he took her last name.

 

BTW; the How to Draw Manga series of books is excellent. 

I have nearly all of the books (30 volumes) and they all come in handy (though I tend to use the Guns and Military Vol 1, and Giant Robots volumes the most).

 

Next Chapter has a title.

You don't need to thank me for reading your fanfic, :smileyhappy: it entertains me. Personally i'm already speculating about the ending but it's still too soon for me to know for sure.

Once again, very awesome chapter Kodai. I wish more people read this, it's one of the best CG fics I've read personally.

 

**BLEEP** Kannon and his weakness. He should be able to overpower Schneizel and run away with Nina lol.

 

SPINZAKU!

 

I know this Red Dragon girl should be ringing a bell, but it's also very late at night, so maybe that's why. I may have to go back and watch a few episodes to see if I can make a guess.

 

Schneizel again being a total bastard. I can't wait til someone shuts him down.

 

And haha at the KallenxGino.

 

Anyway, the artwork is amazing. If you'd ever be interested, I would love to see what you can do with characters from my fic.

CODE GEASS

DIRGE OF DAEDALUS

 

 

Turn Twelve: Battle for Kyoto  (PART 1)

 


           

            "Japan had to become a battleground again before I realized the only true path to peace.  It didn't lay in government halls or the Zero-Requiem.  It didn't require the people to be conned into hating some dictator or weapon symbolizing war.  It required only one very simple concept, a concept that the world had left behind with philosophy, morality, and religion.  All that the world's people really needed to obtain a lasting peace was the power to forgive."- Excerpt from the diary of Suzaku Kururugi dated August 22nd 2024 a.t.b.

 


 

            "Euryale, I'm picking up a pair of Automatos leaving the coastline of Japan and heading for a string of Islands near Ō-Shima Island in Sagami Bay." A beautiful woman with pale-blue eyes, like those of a gray-wolf, said staring at the goddess from within her machine's cockpit.

            "Oh? What kind are they Scylla?" Euryale asked the gaunt-white skinned woman from within the cockpit of the Gorgon.

            "The information from Hephaestus shows them to be of the Lancelot class of Britannian Automatos." Scylla's cold, elf-like features changed slightly as she attempted a smile, causing locks of her silver hair to fall down over the front of her eyes. "Shall I destroy them?"

            Medusa looked up at Euryale from her pilot's seat below and frowned.

            "No Scylla," Euryale answered upon seeing her sister's grimace.  "Leave these two machines to us for the moment.  They may have someone we are looking for within them."

            "As you wish Euryale," Scylla raised an eyebrow as she brushed her hair back. "However, I should warn you that Charybdis' sensors have detected a gateway to the river Styx on the farthest isle of that chain.  The one the Japanese call Kaminejima Island.  This pair of Automatos may be heading there to use the gateway."

            "How soon will they arrive at the island?" Euryale asked.

            "Three quarters of an hour," Scylla answered.

            "We can be there in nearly that time," Medusa told Euryale knowing that her sister would ask.

            Euryale regarded Scylla sternly, "You are to proceed to Osaka Bay and prepare for Jason's arrival.  He should be in that area within the hour for his assault on the UFN capital in Kyoto.  Once he has launched his attack you are to destroy the city, and Jason with it, is that understood Scylla?"

            The woman gave her a venomous grin, "Perfectly Euryale."

 


 

            "Attention Ikaruga, this is Kyoto air defense control," A male voice said over the radio, "hold your position at twenty kilometers from Kyoto and await further orders."

            "Twenty Kilometers?" Chiba asked out loud as Villetta, Jeremiah, and CC entered the bridge.

            "Something must be wrong," Jeremiah said.

            "What makes you say that Jeremiah?"  C.C. asked him.

            Jeremiah gave her a concerned look, "They're holding us at a position that is just outside of the blast diameter of a FLEIJA."

            "You think so?" Villetta blurt out.

            "Are we in danger?" Nagisa asked the operator over the radio. "I need to know because we have civilians on this ship and they've waited long enough to disembark.  If I don't unload them soon they may cause trouble.  Is there a port available that I can release them at?"

             "One moment Ikaruga," the air control officer told her. "I'm patching General Tohdoh to you now."

            "Tohdoh?" Nagisa was surprised as his image came up on the bridge big screen.

            "Captain," He said with a nod.

            "Hi...Kyo...I mean greetings General Tohdoh," She was so happy to see his face she nearly forgot proper military protocol.

            "It's nice to see you again too Chiba," He was being unusually informal.

            "What's going on?" She ventured to ask.

            He cleared his throat, "It would seem the Lancelot of the Lake has been stolen."

            "Stolen!" Jeremiah blurt out, mortified at the possibility of Schneizel gaining two FLEIJA weapons, "By whom?"

            Kyoshiro turned to look at Jeremiah Gottwald and furled his brow, "Yes the FLEIJA armed KnightMare was taken in the early morning hours last night.  We know who the perpetrators are but I'd rather not say in Britannian company."

            C.C.'s eyes widened as she knew there was probably only one person on Earth who had the means to steal the Lancelot of the Lake. "It's Zero isn't it General?"

            "If by Zero you mean Suzaku Kururugi then yes,' Kyoshiro didn't hide his distain for what Suzaku had done and he showed it by exposing his identity.

            He knows? C.C. wasn't sure how Tohdoh knew Zero's identity but she didn't need to be told the implications of the situation to realize the total failure of Zero Requiem. "Is he by himself Tohdoh?"

            He regarded C.C. with a scowl, "Not that this is any of your concern witch, but no he's not alone."

            "Who is with him Kyoshiro?" Chiba asked forgetting proper decorum due to the gravity of the situation.

              Tohdoh sighed, "Empress Nunnally of Britannia, a man from the UFN Russian delegation identified as Enoch Apsu and an unidentified woman."

            "Enoch," C.C. whispered to herself as she looked down at the floor to hide her involuntary expression of surprise from those around her.

            Villetta saw C.C. mutter something to herself before the immortal woman looked up at Tohdoh, "We have to go after them Kyoshiro!"

            "You?" He scoffed, "Why would I let you go after four fugitives armed with a pair of FLEIJA weapons?  You're not exactly trust worthy witch."

            "You'll let me go because I'm expendable," She eyed him carefully. "And Suzaku will listen to me."

            "She's right," Jeremiah stepped forward. "I'll volunteer to go as well. My Geass canceller may be useful if we encounter any of Schneizel's allies."

            "Why would your Geass canceller be useful against Schneizel's allies?" Tohdoh asked in a befuddled tone.

            "I'll fill you in later General," Chiba winked at him with a coy smile.

            Kyoshiro suddenly had the feeling he was no longer in control of the situation, "I see.  Very well, the two of you can go and try to stop Kururugi, but I must warn you that the UFN will not tolerate anything less then the return of the Lancelot of the Lake.  The rest of you must proceed to Kobe and unload the civilians off of Ikaruga then return here immediately.  There is an enemy fleet headed for Japan from Australia and we need every aerial battleship we have."

            "Understood General," Chiba saluted him. "We'll proceed to Kobe and return here as soon as we can."

            He nodded as his image vanished from the screen.

            Chiba turned to C.C. and Jeremiah, "I can't say I'm comfortable about you two going either, but we don't seem to have any choice in the matter.  You had better take your KnightMares in case you encounter any enemy units.  Good luck." She added as C.C. and Jeremiah Gottwald each gave her a nod and then left for the KnightMare hangar.

 


 

            "Here is my greatest ambition Nina," Schneizel waved his hand before the massive machinery that was spread over a room the size of a football stadium.

            "It looks like a Gejhun generator," Professor Einstein said as she examined the mechanisms.

            "That's exactly what it is," He smiled.

            "But what good is a Gejhun generator of this size Prince Schneizel?" Nina knew the large device would only be effective within the area of the island and perhaps some of the surrounding ocean; a diameter of no more than sixty or seventy miles.

            "It is not just a Gejhun generator Nina." He snickered. "It is in fact a Gejhun pulse energy transmitter."

            She gasped at the implications of such a device, "A transmitter?  But that means you could broadcast a Gejhun beam."

            "Exactly," he walked over to a screen nearby and activated it.  A digital representation of the Pitcairn Island base was shown as a red dot on a 3D global atlas. "With this device and the Global Transmission Array of the Thor we can transmit a Gejhun pulse of intense magnitude to any place on Earth via the satellite network that surrounds the planet." A green line shot out from the red dot to multiple blue dots representing satellites which in turn shot forth rays of yellow onto the 3D globe in various places.

            She gave him a dark look, "You could disable every KnightMare on the planet."

            "And end war forever," He told her softly.

            "So this is why you need my FORGE?  To compensate for the immense power requirements of such a large Gejhun device," Professor Einstein glared at him.

            "It's the reason I hadn't used this device before and the reason my father thought of it as a foolish hobby of mine rather then a real threat.  And he was right, that's all it really was until you came into my life.  Your FORGE has the power to produce all the energy I need to make my dream come true."

            Nina shook her head slightly, "It's a pleasant dream Prince Schneizel but you know that even without KnightMare Frames or Sakuradite powered airships the nations of the world would still go back to warring with each other in other ways.  Your brother Lelouch proved that when he tried to focus all of the world's hate upon him and for a time they did, but it lasted less time then it took to create such a sentiment.  How would your world be different?"

            "My dear brother assumed that men's hearts had a propensity for good and that if they were shown the horror of war they would never wage it again.  It was a nice sentiment but idealistically foolish.  I'm a far more practical man then that.  I understand that the have-nots always want what the haves possess, and in turn the haves seek to protect themselves from the have-nots.  It is this lack of mediation of resources...a lack of a planned society that causes such wars."

            Schneizel's scheme intrigued her, "And you plan on creating such a planned society with this machine, yet you have no way of enforcing such a plan should countries not go along with your vision."

             "I have a contingency for that as well," He smirked.

 


 

            "I fail to see the point of us attacking this Island nation," Heracles complained from within the cockpit of Helios. "We're already spread out pretty thinly and this invasion will thin our forces out even further.  What is so dammn important about this place?"

            "We need the Golden Apple deposits at Mount Fuji to finish powering Tartarus.  Once we have that we won't have to continue this bloody campaign." Jason told him as Talos and four legions of Hoplite-Spartans flew in formation towards the coastline of Japan.

            "Why don't we just ask Akira to get it for us?" Heracles joked.

            "You think we'll meet him here in this battle?" Jason asked his friend.

            "Of course," Heracles bellowed. "Don't you want a rematch with the whelp?"

            "I'm not so sure I do," Jason hesitated. "This isn't going to be like last time.  This time we'll have to fight for real and he may get hurt."

            "I understand your fondness for the young warrior Jason, but this is war and there are certainly worse ways to die than in battle." Heracles reassured him as their mecha crossed over the shoreline towards Kyoto.

            "I know my old friend, but I think we should try and minimize the casualties in this assault if we can.  We're not here to conquer this land." Jason said.

            "Ha!" Heracles burst out jovially. "I thought you just said this wasn't going to be like last time and here you are already ordering restraint."

            Jason sighed, "I suppose I did say that didn't I?"

            "That's okay Jason," Heracles laughed heartily. "It'll be more of a challenge if we just try and disable them rather them slay them, especially when they'll certainly be trying to kill all of us."

            "I'm not sure I share you enthusiasm over such a contest my friend," Jason sniggered. "They're machines nearly destroyed the Gorgon and its flight of Harpies.  We may find ourselves in a similar situation."

            "Nonsense!" Heracles scoffed, "As if Euryale and her monkey-brained sister could match the likes of us in battle.  Those two are better at spreading vile rumors and wooing men to their bed chambers than engaging in a real fight."

            Jason tittered, "They're accomplished soldiers Heracles..." He laughed. "They are skilled in combat."

            "Jason," Orpheus' voice cut into the channel.

            "Yes Orpheus? What is it?" Jason's tone became serious.

            "Sixty-five enemy Automatos and twelve airships are inbound and closing fast," Orpheus said.

            "What kind of Automatos are they?" Heracles asked.

            "Mixed...however there are twenty of the transformable types," Orpheus replied.

            "Order our Spartans to engage them but to exercise restraint." Jason heard Orpheus sigh over the radio before he continued. "I don't care how many of their machines you cripple or destroy Orpheus just try not to injure their pilots."

            "But Jason..." Orpheus started to say before Heracles cut him off.

            "You heard the Captain!" Heracles boomed. "We're here to acquire the Golden Apple from Mount Fuji not slaughter a bunch of mortals."

            "Aye sirs," Orpheus said obediently.

 


 

            "I've got a bad feeling about this Mika," Lena told her over a private channel as the Japan Jaguars flew their KnightMares towards the coordinates given them by Captain Chiba just on the outskirts of Kobe.

            "Why, is it because we're the last line of defense?" Mika asked her.

            "Maybe," Lena looked out at the Zangetsu and the Guren MK II as they flew side by side.  "I just worry about those two." She said.

            "You mean Akira and Fong?" Mika inquired as they came to their guard position and stopped.

            "Yes," Lena answered her in a meek tone. "I don't trust Li Jiang.  I know he understands the situation and he'd never do anything to forfeit a victory, but I remember what he said to me in the mess hall..."

            Lena had confided in Mika what had really happened between her and Fong, "You mean about killing Akira?" Mika ventured to raise the question knowing it bothered Lena.

            "Yah, that's what I mean," She bemoaned.  "I think that if we win this battle Fong will try to hurt Akira."

            "No way Lena," Mika stated with confidence. "Fong would be shot out of the sky by me personally if he even tries it."

             The discs of explosions lit up the sky over Osaka in the distance in front of them, "Looks like it has started Mika," Lena said.

            "Get ready everyone," Villetta's said over the general radio frequency. "The enemy has broken through the first line of defense and has split into three groups. The center group is currently engaged with our second line and may be here soon."

            "Don't worry Lena," Mika said. "If you want, we can stick by Akira during the battle."

            "No, we'd only get in his way," Lena huffed, "Mika...can I ask you something?"

            Mika giggled, "Sure Lena, you can ask me anything."

            Lena hesitated for a moment before posing the question that had been bugging her since the KnightMare Competition at Sidney, "Are you in love with Akira?"

            Mika thought about it for a moment, "Honestly-"

 


 

            "Here they come Akira!" Fong exclaimed as the first few Hoplite-Spartans broke through Kyoto's second line of defense.

            The Greek machines tore through a pair of Vincent-Wards at the rear of the second line of JDF KnightMares.

            "Permission to engage the enemy Major Nu," Akira radioed the Jaguars' commander.

            "Permission granted Lieutenant Nobunaga...good hunting," She replied quickly as several more of the Greek KMFs got past the Osaka defenders.

            "Thank you Major," Akira dodged a blast from the Hades cannon of a Hoplite Lance and cut off one of the wings of the mecha's Icarus units; sending it spiraling to the ground below.

            "You're not taking this city!" Fong yelled at one of the Spartans as Guren dodged a Hades bolt and grabbed the arm of the Greek KMF; in the next instant the Automatos' arm was molten slag.  The Hoplite followed up with a Chaos-beam attack but Fong rolled Guren out of the way and used the Katen Yaibatou blade to cut the Spartan in half at the waist.

            "Don't get too far ahead of us Fong!" Villetta yelled at him as she used the lance of her Jikisan-Akatsuki to penetrate its Aegis Shield and run a Hoplite threw at the waist; the Automatos exploded after she withdrew her weapon.

            Li Jiang flew the Guren as fast as the machine's glide-unit would take it; zipping through the mass of Hoplites looking for a target of opportunity.  He found one and dove for it.

            "You're mine!" Fong said as he reached out with the Fukusha Hadou Kikou radiation wave claw of Guren.  The oversized KMF hand bounced off of a golden radiance in front of the Hoplite.

            "We meet again," Heracles said over the general radio channel to Fong as Helios swung its club at Guren.

            "YOU!" Fong spat over the comm. as Guren barely moved out of the way of the great adamantine weapon.

            "Li Jiang, you can't take him alone," Akira flew towards Fong but the Talos flew up in front of him.

            "Have you forgotten what I taught you already Akira?" Jason scolded him over the radio. "I could have cut you in half just now.  Don't let yourself get distracted in battle, it's how you managed to defeat me last time remember?"

            "Jason," Nobunaga said unsure of the Greek's intensions.

            "You ready for a rematch?" Jason asked in a mild tone.

            "Always," Akira replied.

            "Good," Jason had Talos raise its sword in salute.

            Zangetsu did the same.

Turn Twelve: Battle for Kyoto  (PART 2)

 


 

            "We need to get out of here Kaguya!" Jiang Reika said as she pulled Sumeragi towards an aerial shuttle in the hangar of the UFN building.

            "No Reika, we have to stay here and provide leadership during this crisis." Kaguya protested. "It is our duty."

            "General Tohdoh has already given the evacuation order and most of the UFN council has fled the building Kaguya.  Even General Tohdoh is moving his command to the Ikaruga.  We need to get there too if we're to have any hope of getting out of this alive."  The Tianzi dragged her friend up the ramp into the shuttle with the help of two of the ship's crew.

            "NO DAMMN IT! I will not run from this enemy!" Kaguya struggled to break free.

            "They have two FLEIJA warheads Kaguya. We have to get to safety." The Tianzi pulled with all her might on Sumeragi.

            "Nunnally and Suzaku would never use those weapons against us Reika and you know it," Kaguya shot back as she lost her footing.

            The four of them fell into the shuttle.  A lady-crewman inside the egress pressed the hatch door button and closed the ramp; in an instant the shuttle was in flight.

 


 

           

            Gregor spun out of the way of a Hades blast and fired a burst of autocannon rounds at the offending Hoplite; his rounds bounced off of the Aegis Shield of the mecha as it closed in towards his Gekka.

            "You okay Gregor?" Tetsuo asked as he was engaged by another of the Greek machines.

            "Don't worry Tetsuo I've got this one," Gregor said to his wingmen as he fired a burst of autocannon rounds at the Hoplite.

            "You pretty good," Orpheus called to Gregor over the radio as he had his Hoplite flip the Thunder-Lance over and thrust the adamantine spear towards the Gekka.

            Gregor parried the spear with the Katen Yaibatou revolving-blade. "You're not bad yourself.  It's a good thing for me that your shield lowers when you attack."

            Orpheus laughed, "You noticed that did you?"

            "I did," Gregor said as he waited for Orpheus' next attack.

            Orpheus had his Hoplite stow its spear and shield onto its back.  The Spartan then drew its sword and saluted Gregor, "Your friend Akira is an honorable man, are you?"

            Gregor had his Gekka salute Orpheus' Spartan, "I am."

            Orpheus laughed, "Jason was right about all of you. It's a pity we have to fight."

            "I agree," Gregor said as he waited for Orpheus to make the first move. "What's your name?"

            "Orpheus," the Greek said proudly.

            "I'm Gregor," He said with confidence. "Since you're a guest in my country allow me to offer you the first move in this duel of swords Orpheus."

            "Thank you Gregor," Orpheus said as his Spartan lunged at the Gekka.

            Gregor barely dodged the sword thrust, "No problem" He spun the Gekka around and slashed at the Hoplite.

            The swords of their machines crossed.

 


 

           

            "Wow, I haven't been here since they finished this place." Suzaku said as they walked through the large archway with their Lancelots. The ancient hall was lit by a series of six large brass cauldrons on each side of the tomb that burned an odorless, smokeless, substance that Suzaku figured must have been a natural gas fed system of some kind. The entire chamber had been redecorated from its former state of disrepair, though the ancient pillars and walls were unchanged. All along the center of the chamber were representative marble statues in full military regalia and actual weaponry of every Emperor of Britannia before Lelouch.  Forty-nine statues lined each side of the eight-foot wide red-marble runway that led to the dais at the far end of the chamber.  There upon the dais lay the crystal, vacuum sealed coffin of Lelouch Vi Britannia.

            Nunnally was leaning over Suzaku's shoulder looking at the viewscreens as the two mecha came to a stop at the foot of the runway.  A flood of emotions coursed through her as the shape of the crystal coffin came into view.  Tears filled her eyes.

            "Are you okay with this?" Suzaku asked her.

            She turned and smiled at him, "Of course I am...it was my idea remember."

            He let out a soft laugh, happy to see her smiling despite how painful it must be for her to see Lelouch again.  His own feelings were getting to him, "Yah I guess it was.  I'm sorry."

            "There's no need to be sorry Suzaku..." She paused to wipe the moisture from her eyes. "Those of us who really knew Lelouch all loved him."

 


 

           

            "The island is in sight Euryale," Medusa said as they approached Kaminejima Island.

            "I don't see the enemy Automatos on my scope Medusa," Euryale was annoyed as she scanned over the whole of the Island with the Gorgon's instruments.

            "They must be at the gate inside whatever temple it is hidden in," Medusa told her.

            "The Kingdom of Mu hid their gates well," Euryale lamented. "I'm not picking up anything on our sensors. We'll have to spread out our forces and scour the Island visually for the gate."

            "That could take too much time Euryale.  Jason has already begun his attack on Kyoto and..." Medusa started to say.

            "Wait my sister, I'm picking up two more enemy Automatos closing in on the Island."  Euryale activated her comm. "Attention all Harpies, proceed underwater immediately and await further orders." 

            The whole legion obeyed without question and plunged into the waters outside of Kaminejima Island; just as a pair of KnightMares came into view over the far side of the isle.

 


 

 

            "I tell you C2, my scope was reading a large number of KnightMares just to the east of Kaminejima." Jeremiah protested.

            "If they were actually there they must have dove into the sea and there's nothing we can do about them right now," C.C. said as they flew towards their destination. "We have to get Suzaku and Nunnally out of here as quickly as we can."

            The Shinkirou and the Jikisan-Akatsuki flew in a staggered line formation towards the North-East side of the Island.  Within moments they were in sight of the concealed gateway to Lelouch's tomb.

            "I don't see either of the Lancelot units on my scope Jeremiah.  They've probably gone into the chamber with them."

            "That was smart thinking on their part," he said. "That way they're totally concealed."

            "It's a good thing we know where the Thought-Elevator is or else we'd never find them." C.C. said as she flew her KnightMare down to the mouth of the Geass-Ruin's entrance.

            Jeremiah followed suit and landed his KMF next to hers.  "Should we go inside with the possibility of an enemy force so close?" He asked.

            "We have too," C.C. said. "Let's go in with our KnightMares just in case there really is a force of enemy KnightMares out here and we need ours fast."

            "Do you intend on forcing Suzaku to return the Lancelot of the Lake?" Gottwald wondered if she'd actually follow Tohdoh's orders.

            "Yes, but I'm not doing it because of what the UFN wants." She answered with defiance in her voice. "I'm going to force him to return the FLEIJA warheads to Kyoto because we may need them to defeat this enemy we're fighting."

            "I see," He said impressed by her strategic line of thinking.

 


 

 

            "There!" Medusa remarked with excitement. "They've shown us the location of the temple."

            "Excellent," Euryale stated with pleasure as she opened up a channel to her legion of Harpies. "Units three through twelve will join up with us to take the Empress and kill Zero and his allies.  All other units will proceed to Kyoto and attack the city from the rear now that Jason has begun his assault."

            The Harpy units broke into two groups, with nine of them forming up around the Gorgon and the other thirty-one speeding off towards the city of Kyoto.

 


 

           

            "The gate to the Thought-Elevator is just behind the velum-screen at the far end of the chamber." Nunnally said as she and Enoch walked towards the dais while Suzaku and the Red Dragon secured their mecha. 

            Nunnally started down the long Red-Marble pathway.

            "Wait!" C.C.'s voice called out to them over the loudspeaker of Shinkirou.  "You must stop!"

            "C2?" Suzaku said as the Shinkirou and the Jikisan-Akatsuki entered the chamber. 

            "Yes Suzaku," She replied as she opened up the hatch of her KnightMare and stood up.  "You can't take the Lancelot of the Lake from here.  You have to return to Kyoto at once.  The city is under attack and those FLEIJA may be our only hope of winning against this enemy."

            "C2 we need to get Nunnally back to Britannia to stop this conflict," Suzaku said to her.

            "Britannia is not the real enemy here," Jeremiah said as he opened his own hatch and got up from his seat. "Bringing her to Britannia is not going to stop this conflict; in fact it could make things even worse."

            "What?" Nunnally said in confusion.  She knew they what they spoke was the truth but she was confused as to how it could be possible since Britannia had declared war against the UFN.

            "If Britannia is not responsible then who is?" Suzaku asked with a skeptical tone.

            "A force of Geass users who claim to be the ancient Olympian Gods of the Antediluvian world and their conspirator who awoke them...Schneizel," C.C. said to them. "We don't know how Schneizel revived them, but we do know they are helping him and their weapons are superior to most of what the UFN and Britannia possess.  A fleet of their warships may be laying siege to Kyoto even as we speak."

             "The Gods of Olympus?" Enoch frowned. "I'd thought they'd all departed Earth millennia ago."

            C.C. looked down at the gray-bearded old man and snickered, "You look ridiculous Enoch."

            He smiled up at her, "It suits me for the moment.  It's nice to see you again Eli..."

            "C2!" She told him with a cautious smirk.

            "Oh?  It's C2 now is it?" He laughed.

            "I hate to interrupt but we may all be in danger here," Jeremiah stated firmly. "We should be leaving here immediately."

            "Agreed," The Red Dragon said in her modulated voice from atop the Lancelot Frontier.  "If what you say is true then we may be in danger here."

            C.C. looked at her in surprise, "Who might you be?"

            "She's the Red Dragon," Enoch smiled at C.C. "My Great-granddaughter."

            "WHAT?" She said in shock. "Then that means she's..." an explosion rocked the interior of the chamber as small rocks and debris fell from the ceiling.

            "Looks like they're here!" Jeremiah exclaimed.

 


 

             

            The Gorgon sped over the tops of the trees of the Island with its entourage of Automatos in tow.  In moments the spot where the two KnightMares had been came into view.

            "They've gone inside," Medusa said.

            "The fates have smiled on us," Euryale made a wicked grin as the Gorgon settled down on the surface of the Island over what was certainly the roof of the temple.  The great wings of the Kolossos-Automatos folded up onto its back as the machine removed its newly-acquired Golden-Toxin bow from where the weapon rested on its hip armor.

            "Let's flush them out," Euryale added as the Gorgon pulled back on the energy-string and formed a large gold-energy arrow.  In the next moment the great Kolossos let loose the missile into the roof of the underground structure.

             "Be careful Euryale," Medusa warned. "We don't want to bring down the whole cavern upon them."

            "I know Medusa..." She started to scold her sister when an energy beam raced towards them. "MOVE!" was all Euryale could get out.

            Medusa tried to roll the Gorgon out of the path of the deadly beam of light but its left wing was grazed at the shoulder.

            "Our Icarus unit has been hit!" Medusa yelled.

            Euryale didn't respond to her sister, she had the black and gold colored enemy Automatos in her sights. "Take this!" She spat at the machine as she let loose with a barrage of Hades cannon fire from the tubular head-guns and corralled the Shinkirou into a bolt she let fly from the Gorgon's bow. 

 


 

 

            C.C. ejected from the doomed KnightMare as the golden-missile of the Kolossos tore through the mid-section of her machine.  Shinkirou fell from the sky and impacted into the head of the Gorgon; exploding in a ball of fire as it did so.

            "C2!" Suzaku called out as he unsheathed the pair of enhanced MVS blades from the sides of the Lancelot of the Lake.  Two Harpies attempted to intercept his KnightMare but Suzaku's skill was too great.  He easily slipped through the first Harpy's sword thrust and cut the head of the machine off with his first maser-vibration-sword.  With a sweep of the second blade he ran the enemy KnightMare unit through; killing the pilot and destroying the machine.

            Suzaku went at the next Harpy with a fury and did a double bladed twist and spin towards the Greek-Hoplite mecha; his first blade cut the arms of the Harpy off whilst the second cut it in half at the waist.

            Kururugi searched around for another Harpy unit when he caught sight of the pink Lancelot Frontier cutting down its third Greek Automatos with short, crisp, sword parries and blocks that ended with the MVS of the pink machine going up through the center of the doomed Harpy's main body.

            "Suzaku, leave this battle to us," Jeremiah ordered over the radio. "You have a duty to the UFN and to Britannia.  Get that KnightMare of yours to Kyoto and stop this invasion, they're depending on you over there." Gottwald said as his Jikisan cut through its second Harpy. "And don't worry about us we can handle this motley crew."

            "But I can't just leave Nunnally," He started to protest.

            "We'll protect her Suzaku," The Red Dragon told him as she skillfully knocked the sword from her fourth Harpy and stabbed the metal beast in its mid-section; the Lancelot withdrew its weapon and the Automatos exploded.

            Seeing Jeremiah's Jikisan-Akatsuki slice through the last Harpy finalized Kururugi's decision, "Alright, I'll take my leave of you and go and help Kyoto, but promise me Jeremiah that you'll get Nunnally to safety."

            "I will," Gottwald said as he joined up with the Lancelot Frontier to take on the damaged Gorgon on the Island below them.

            The Lancelot of the Lake sped off towards Kyoto as the Red Dragon asked, "Let's take this one together."

            "Agreed," Jeremiah said as their two machines came down in front of the Gorgon.

 


 

 

            "The Gorgon's Gaze unit has been disabled," Euryale told Medusa, "And our guard detail is gone."

            "My controls are sluggish Euryale," Medusa moved the control sticks as quickly as she could to dodge an MVS attack by the Lancelot Frontier; one of the blades clipped the shoulder armor of the Kolossos.

            "I'll deactivate the battle-computer," Euryale said as she touched a button on one of the screens in front of her.  "You'll have to fly her completely on your own and we won't be synchronized can you do that?"

            Medusa let out a laugh, "Against these two fools...are you kidding?" With full control in her hands Medusa easily swerved out of the way of an attack by Jeremiah's Jikisan.

            "Good, then we can still take these two," Euryale said regaining her composure as she used the adamantine claw of the Gorgon to grab one of the Akatsuki's MVS blades and snap it in half.

 


 

 

            "It's still too powerful for us!" The Red Dragon blurt out as she watched a hail of energy bolts tear through Jeremiah's Jikisan from the tubular head guns of the machine.  She dodged a shower of blasts that came at her machine as it swerved in behind the large mecha.

            The bolts blew off the left arm, leg, and head of Gottwald's KnightMare Frame but its float unit still allowed it to move, "Dammn it!" Jeremiah cursed as he fired a barrage of autocannon rounds at the Gorgon from his machine's arm mounted gun and used the assault to give the Red Dragon an opening.

            The Lancelot Frontier leapt up over the Gorgon as Jeremiah plunged his Jikisan into the Kolossos and ejected, "NOW! Cut down through the damaged armor of its head!"

            The Lancelot Frontier dropped from the sky in a dive with both of its MVS swords and drove the blades into the top of the Gorgon all the way down to the hilts through its neck. 

            The Red Dragon ejected from her machine as the snake-like head cannons of the Gorgon blazed long enough to blast off the legs, arms, and chest armor of the Lancelot Frontier before going dead.

 


 

 

            "We've lost all power!" Medusa exclaimed.

            Euryale grabbed her sword from the side of her pilot's seat. "That pink machine pierced our energy cells.  The Gorgon is shutting down."

            Medusa wasn't sure what Euryale was up to until her sister opened the rear hatch.  The young pilot grabbed her own sword belt, "So now what?"

            Euryale smiled, "Contact Scylla with the emergency communicator and tell her to begin her attack." Euryale gave her sister an evil grin, "This battle is not over."

Great chapter as always!

 

Well at least they cant enslave Lelouches sister and others on that island with Gottwald on the job!

 

I wonder...hmm save this thought for next week if what I think will happen happens. But with C2 on the island wont have to think about it that much. :smileytongue:

 

I need a supply of refrain for real...

This is my first time commenting on this fic, mostly cause I've been busy reading the others and just got the chance to sit down and read through this one.

I must say, this is one of the finest, most well written CG fics I've ever set eyes on; your attention to detail and the flow of the story are superb.

The little hints you drop at the beginning of every chapter are really interesting, they give us a look into the future beyond or just after this fic.

The ways you've had people set up at the beginning and how they've progressed through the fic are very beleivable, as are the repercussions of the characters actions.

And the drawing, can't forget them; those truly are amazing in their detail and coloring.

Here are some of my favorite parts so far:

        The accidental flashing incident on the cruise, because that was just to funny for words;

        Suzaku's dream journey to the afterlife, for the information he received there;

        And the introduction of the Red Dragon, cause I figured out who it is from bits of info in the fic.

All I can say now is keep up this great work.

Another great turn as always. ORANGE-KUN PWNS! It looks like Suzaku might have to stain his hands with blood again using the Fleiya. Even if he uses that on the enemy it will break his heart to have to use that weapon again. Poor Suzaku, :smileysad: It looks like a big battle is just starting, and it's about to get bigger. Looking forward to the next turn, and it sounds like Schneizel is up to no good lol. Good luck writing the rest of the series!
And as the sword pierced the heart of the great King, His heart called out to it's counterpart. His body slowly fell, his soul drifting away. As the great King lay before his only kin, he spoke his last words. Then, The great King, The God Emperor, The only one brave enough to die with our sins, stilled, Never to stir again.

Another great chapter and another great battle Kodai. Looks like Suzaku is going to have to get his hands dirty to stay alive in this one and that was some handy teamwork between Jeremiah and the Red Dragon (who my dumb brain cant pick up on).

Thank you...thank you. :smileyhappy:

 

Jeremiah is certainly an asset in this situation but his more conventional cybernetic abilities will aid him in the next chapter.

 

Oh...Chapter 13 is the proverbial clincher.

I've been waiting to write this one since Chapter 1.

 

Thanks again for reading.
