Code Geass Heroes' Awakening R2: Turn 18 Part 3
Tokyo, 9:19 p.m. The Shinkiro was being restrained by the Valkyrie Squadron's Vincents, the Percival in front of it.
Luciano: It's truly an honor to meet with a criminal of your caliber.
Lelouch: Really? That's pretty funny, coming from a murderer.
Luciano: The killings were justified. It was war, there were terrorists and criminals abound...
Lelouch: Your own teammates.
Luciano: My own teammates- Hey! How did you know about that?
Lelouch: It's the internet. It never forgets.
Luciano: Hmph. Whatever. Hold still, while I pierce through your precious little life.
Lelouch: I'm good, thanks.
The Shinkiro attacked the Percival with the Slash Harkens in its knees, scratching the armor of the Percival, before being retracted, the legs being pulled tighter.
Luciano: Whoa! Didn't know about that... Anyway, where was I...?
Lelouch: I believe you were, as Alistair puts it, "getting wrecked".
The Shinkiro fired its Hadron Cannons at the Percival, but the Percival blocked the shots, with its shield

Unknown Britannian flagship, 8:40 p.m. Charles sat in his seat on the bridge, as his new ship made its way to Japan.
Charles: Are the preparations nearing completion?
Britannian Commander: Yes, sir. Our operatives at the Thought Elevator in Area 11 are nearly finished.
Charles: Good. (thinking) After all these years, my plan will finally be complete. As long as the Black Knights and Tokyo Mavericks are destroyed, once we arrive, everything will be perfect. I know you'll be by my side, soon enough, for this, Marianne.
Britannian Commander: Your Majesty, was it truly wise to not bring the rest of the Knights of the Round with us?
Charles: (out loud) There is no need. They shall defend our homeland, as will Bismarck. Do not falter, and do not surrender. The terrorists' days are numbered.
Meanwhile, in Tokyo, the battle for the defense of Japan continues, as the Ikaruga shot down some Britannian airships, with its large cannon, the other turrets shooting at Knightmares in range.

Tokyo, 8:23 p.m. The Ikaruga was in position above the city, and several ground force Knightmares took their positions, as well as the Shinkiro, Akatsukis and Koga Saburo.
Zero: Still working on that Float Unit, for the Tenkai?
Guilford: Afraid so. Hopefully, Darlton can keep the destruction to a minimum.
Zero: He's a heavy weapons guy, so he better be careful.
Guilford: He and his sons are fighters, so whatever ground units come by, they'll be ready. Plus, all the other Burais on standby, in the construction sites.
Zero: Oh, yeah, we never got to use those...
Guilford: There are loads of designs for Burais and Sutherlands.
Ohgi: Done talking, guys?
Guilford: Yeah, I ran out of things to talk about- Wow, that's a lot.
Zero and Guilford saw the large army of Britannian airships and Knightmares approaching Tokyo, as well as some Enclave Knightmares.
Zero: At first, I thought to use the Gefjun Disturbers on the trains to get into Tokyo. But, it's good how plans change.

Kururugi Shrine, 6:38 p.m., before sunset. Lelouch was pushed into a limo, the door being shut behind him and every door locking. Lelouch panicked a bit, and saw a TV screen turn on, Schneizel appearing on the screen.
Lelouch: Schneizel!
Schneizel: (over screen) Apologies for the rough treatment, Lelouch, they don't know they're about to die.
Lelouch: What are you talking about?
Schneizel: I'm on your side, and I've got an ear to nearly every part of the ground. I know that you asked Guilford to help you.
The previous day, military warehouse in Tokyo. Guilford entered the dark warehouse, looking around and holding a cup of coffee.
Guilford: Alright. I'm here. So, who wants to talk to me?
Lelouch: (approaches Guilford) Hello, Guilford.
Guilford: Hi...yourself. Is there a reason why a high schooler wants to talk to me?
Lelouch: Euphy and Kallen are also high schoolers.
Guilford: Fair. So, what's up?

Aboard the Ikaruga, 2:00 p.m. Rakshata and Lloyd were working on the Guren, with Kallen waiting, impatiently.
Kallen: Is it done, yet!?
Rakshata: No whining. It doesn't make this any faster.
Lloyd: Though, to be fair, Cecile's designing skills are top notch.
Kallen: Speaking of which, where is she?
Lloyd: Oh, I told her to pilot her Sutherland, wherever she wanted. She's an excellent pilot, and her unit has the Blaze Luminous.
Rakshata: Now, that's a marvelous idea. And, I do believe Jeremiah will be please, once he realizes my update to the Okuninushi is complete.
Kallen: With Lloyd's help, right?
Lloyd: Her original design seemed a bit off, so I gave my two cents.
Rakshata: And, what a glorious two cents it was, my friend.
Lloyd: By the way, you should see my gift for Euphemia, under that tarp.
Kallen was confused and removed the tarp covering a Knightmare, and revealed it to be a sort of copy of the Lancelot, with a different style of helmet and a white and light purple paint job.

Kagoshima coast, Japan. It was somewhat quiet, only the sounds of waves on the sea could be heard, on a seemingly peaceful morning. Suddenly, gunshots rang out, cannons were fired, signaling the start of Japan's defense from Britannia. Several Mavericks and Black Knights Sutherlands and Glocesters were firing at Britannian models of the same, which had Float Systems, and the Shen Hu began assisting the ground forces, rending the flying units apart.
Xingke: Looks like Zero's hunch was right. We'll have to hold them off, as much as we can! For now, we wait for Zero's signal, and we'll head back to Tokyo!
Black Knights and Tokyo Mavericks: Right!
Meanwhile, Lelouch walked through some familiar surroundings, from his childhood, hearing a radio telling of the beginning defense of Japan. Lelouch stopped in front of a large set of steps, leading up to the Kururugi Shrine.

Conference platform, China, 10:00 a.m. Many people were gathering on the artificial island, for the ratification ceremony of the United Federation of Nations. Lelouch was in his room aboard the Ikaruga, talking with Diethard.
Lelouch: Are the preparations nearly finished?
Diethard: (over phone) Yes. Tohdoh and Xingke are in their respective waiting rooms.
Lelouch: Excellent. After I meet with India and Guinea, I'll be at the assembly. (closes phone) C.C., please don't leave this room. I'll come back. Okay?
C.C.: Of course! See you, later!
Lelouch: (smiles) Naturally. (puts on Zero mask)
Meanwhile, in the Black Knights' waiting room, Tohdoh was being prepared for the ceremony, by Chiba, while the others were celebrating.
Tohdoh: Honestly, having to wear makeup feels disgraceful.
Chiba: Don't worry, it's the masculine kind. The kind that makes sure sweat doesn't show up.
Tohdoh: Fair enough.
Chiba: So, sir... Um... There's something that I'd request of you...

Britannian Homeland, 3:00 p.m. Luciano walked into a hangar and looked up at the newly rebuilt Lancelot Sigma.
Luciano: So, you're the friend I made, all this time, and not Suzaku, hm? Sigma, I believe it was?
Sigma: Luciano...
Luciano: I hate to bring bad news, but your Director has perished. The fault lies with Zero and Alistair Wake.
Sigma: WAKE...
Luciano: Save your energy. We'll attack Area 11 and take it back, soon enough.
Bismarck: Luciano. Your Valkyrie Squadron has arrived, and the development of Gareths is complete.
Luciano: How wonderful. The Confederate Enclave's forces will help tremendously, with our forces. We'll wipe those Elevens off the face of the Earth.
Bismarck: We're only after the Tokyo Mavericks and the Black Knights. Civilian casualties will be at a minimum.
Luciano: That's your opinion, Knight of One. You're rather close to the Emperor, so one would think his thought process would rub off on you.

Aboard the Ikaruga, 3:25 p.m. Lelouch sat down in his room, C.C. standing next to him.
Lelouch: That was an adventure and a half. I'm certainly glad we dealt with two birds with one stone, by accident. The Emperor of Ego should be stuck in that dimension, for a while. If that's the case, Britannia may attack Japan, at full force, when he gets out. I hope there are shelters...
C.C.: Um, master? What should I be doing?
Lelouch: Then, there's this situation. (looks at C.C.) C.C., I'm not your master. I'm your friend.
C.C.: Huh? But...I've never had a friend, before...
Lelouch: You do, now. (smiles) You have lots of friends. You're not homeless, in the slightest. You live with me, and I'll protect you, no matter what.

Sword of Akasha, 3:09 p.m. C.C. was standing with Charles, at the top of the stairs.
C.C.: My life doesn't have meaning, anymore. The people I've met over the years, the spiteful ones, the kind ones, they all vanished, in the end. That is the curse I have lived with, for centuries.
Charles: Now, it can end, C.C. Your torment is finally over.
C.C.: Yes...
Suddenly, a surge of energy emerged at the bottom of the stairs, Lelouch in the cockpit of the Shinkiro and Alistair next to the Shinkiro.
Lelouch: C.C.!
Charles: You opened the Thought Elevator?!
Alistair: (starts walking up the stairs) Hello, again, Emperor of Ego.
Charles: Don't you have anything kinder to call your world leader?
Alistair: Not when it's so obvious.

Lelouch: What is this place...?!
Charles: I must admit that I am disappointed in you, Lelouch. You shrouded yourself in lies, and now you seek the truth.
Lelouch: I'm through with lying. I've been through, for nearly a year.
Charles: If that is the case, then why are you Zero? You hide behind a mask and a false name, and look where it has led you!
Lelouch: Well, the outfit isn't solely for style, to be honest. I saw something similar, in an American comic book.
Charles: You've lost Suzaku, your dear friend. As well as Nunnally. Your lies have brought them pain!
Lelouch: That's your opinion. They already know I'm Zero. I'm not in this, for fame and glory, you know.

Charles: My prodigal son. How have you been, Lelouch?
Lelouch: I think you know the answer. You're a wanted man, you know.
Charles: It is not easy, being understood as the world's leader.
Lelouch: (rolls behind Shinkiro) That doesn't give you the right to slaughter innocent people!
Charles: You say that, as you cower behind a machine? How pitiful- Ah, I forget. You know about my Geass. Quite clever, I will admit. Fortune is on your side. For once.
Lelouch: Tell me something, then! Why didn't you protect my mother!? If you knew that people were conspiring against her, you could have done something!

Geass Order base, 2:13 p.m. A task force of Mavericks and Black Knights Knightmares assaulted the artificial city within the dome of the base, most of the personnel not panicking and minding their own business.
Kinoshita: What the hell is wrong with these people? It's like they don't realize they're being attacked...
Seth: I think you're gonna realize that these people don't have heat signatures.
Kinoshita: I... I don't get it.
Seth: They're already dead. These guys are run by AIs, the ones used to pilot Knightmares and for mass-produced cyborgs.
Kinoshita: (trembles in fear) I think I'm gonna be sick.
Lelouch: (over radio) There's nothing we can do, for these people, Kinoshita. We can't let their bodies be used, like this. If there are heat signatures, spare them, if possible.

Lelouch: You know him.
C.C.: Excuse me?
Lelouch: V.V. Where is he?
C.C.: Look, even if I told you, he'd see you coming. He has numerous hideouts, and pinning him to just one would take forever.
Lelouch: We've got Jeremiah, for that, then. Who is he?
C.C.: ...I've got nothing to hide. He's your former dad's twin brother. He was a kid, when he got his Code. It's how he and I are immortal.
Lelouch: How'd he get it?
C.C.: That is still a mystery, even to me. His former name...it was Victor, or something.

Lelouch: Oh, dammit... I actually didn't think of that.

Jeremiah: Nickname Orange...not recognized.
Lelouch: Didn't do your homework, huh? That's pretty peculiar of you...for an Agent of Civility.
Jeremiah: (pauses) Your intellect has impressed me. How did you know?

Tokyo, 9:19 p.m. The Shinkiro was being restrained by the Valkyrie Squadron's Vincents, the Percival in front of it.

Luciano: It's truly an honor to meet with a criminal of your caliber.
Lelouch: Really? That's pretty funny, coming from a murderer.
Luciano: The killings were justified. It was war, there were terrorists and criminals abound...
Lelouch: Your own teammates.
Luciano: My own teammates- Hey! How did you know about that?
Lelouch: It's the internet. It never forgets.
Luciano: Hmph. Whatever. Hold still, while I pierce through your precious little life.
Lelouch: I'm good, thanks.

The Shinkiro attacked the Percival with the Slash Harkens in its knees, scratching the armor of the Percival, before being retracted, the legs being pulled tighter.

Luciano: Whoa! Didn't know about that... Anyway, where was I...?
Lelouch: I believe you were, as Alistair puts it, "getting wrecked".

The Shinkiro fired its Hadron Cannons at the Percival, but the Percival blocked the shots, with its shield, the arms being pulled tighter, as well.

Luciano: Are you done?
Lelouch: Not until you're dead, we're not.
Luciano: Alright, enough of this shit. Hold him there, ladies.
Valkyrie Squadron: (in unison) Yes, sir!

The Percival began preparing its MVS Particle Drill, the Shinkiro unable to use its Absolute Defense System.

Lelouch: Ah, crap... (changes radio frequency) Alistair, I could use some help, here!
Alistair: (over radio) In what regard? I'm miles away, from you.
Lelouch: Your Geass requires you to see the target, right? Hack into these girls' screens and persuade them to fight for us!
Alistair: You talking about the ones working for the Knight of Ten? Oh, yeah, Kewell's sister's there! Better not disappoint Jeremiah, then.

Inside Marika Soresi's Vincent, Marika was focused on keeping the Shinkiro restrained, and she suddenly saw Alistair Wake's face, as he was in the Masakado.

Marika Soresi: Alistair Wake!
Alistair: (over screen, smiles) Hello!
Marika: You got my brother killed, last year! I'll never forgive you-!

Before Marika could finish her sentance, Alistair activated his Geass, which found her and the other girls in the Valkyrie Squadron, calming them down and making them easy to persuade.

Marika: ...Okay, he was a bit of an elitist racist.
Alistair: True that. Hey, could you girls aid in the defense of Tokyo, instead of devoting yourselves to the Emperor of Ego? You can ditch that dick with the drill.
Valkyrie Squadron: (in unison) Okay!

The Vincents immediately let go of the Shinkiro, retracted their Slash Harkens, and flew off. Luciano was surprised at this, and looked at the Shinkiro, nervously.

Luciano: Um... We can...talk about this, right-?

The Shinkiro immediately shot its Hadron Cannons, again, dealing damage to the Percival.

Meanwhile, the Galahad engaged the Zangetsu, the swords of both Knightmares clashing and sparking, with each contact.

Bismarck: Not bad, at all. Although, I did fight your friend, from China.
Tohdoh: If he gave you a hard time, then so can we. Zero included.
Bismarck: Of that, I have no doubt. A natural tactician, yet also a fine warrior, like you. The axe suits him, well.
Tohdoh: Tell me about it. With that weapon, he dominates melee range. No, wait, I think I've got it. It's why you were called redcoats.
Bismarck: And here I thought Alistair Wake was the comedian. I'm no longer in a mood for one-on-one combat! Come at me!

The Galahad and Zangetsu dashed backwards away from each other, just as the Yorktown arrived, from the north, and the Avalon, from the east. Schneizel intended to observe the battle, only engaging in combat, when attacked, while the Yorktown sent out more Knightmares, with the Lancelot Sigma and Zanzibar's Vincent commanding the forces.

Sigma: Where...is...Wake...?
Suzaku: Elsewhere. I still feel like I should pay you back, for making me feel like shit.
Sigma: Wake's allies and friends...will do... Die, Suzaku Kururugi!

The Lancelot Sigma rammed into the Lancelot Conquista, while Zanzibar's Vincent gazed at the Zangetsu.

Bismarck: Ah, he has a grudge with you. The battle made me forget about that.
Tohdoh: I think you can label that under "crap we already know".
Zanzibar: TOHDOOOOH!

Zanzibar's Vincent charged at the Zangetsu, completely ignoring the Galahad, as it relentlessly slashed with its MVS polearm.

Inside the Ikaruga, Kallen was in the cockpit of the fully upgraded Guren, Lloyd and Rakshata ready to pass out, at any second.

Lloyd: Done! Finally done!
Rakshata: The Guren was easy enough to upgrade. We'll have to rebuild the Lancelot, from scratch, if we want the same, for Suzaku.
Lloyd: Way ahead of you. Now, Guren S.E.I.T.E.N.! Fly!

The Guren S.E.I.T.E.N. flew out of the hangar, upgraded with Energy Wings of Cecile's design, and a new Radiant Wave Surger arm, completely blunt, but still powerful. When it flew into the battlefield, its wings opened, red light giving it flight. Kallen saw that the Percival was being chased by the Shinkiro.

Luciano: Why won't you quit, and die, dammit!?
Lelouch: Get back here, so I can kick your ass!
Kallen: Zero! I've got him.
Lelouch: Kallen! Whoa... Now, that's a beautiful piece of technology.
Luciano: Huh? Oh, if it isn't the redheaded Elven. I think playing with you should be a blast!

The Percival fired its missile shield at the Guren, only for it to start flying, and rending the missiles apart, with its wings, then launched the Radiant Wave Surger arm at the Percival. The arm stretched across the sky, bashing through one Vincent Ward, and another, when the Percival pushed it, to defend itself.

Luciano: Oops. Sorry, I outrank you.

The Guren then fired a Radiant Wave beam, hitting various other Knightmares on the battlefield, which exploded when the hand returned to the Guren.

Luciano: Impressive, impressive. Tell me, Eleven... You know of the prime truth of the battlefield, yes? When death happens off one, it's a crime. But, when every death is on one, heroism is yours!
Kallen: Something a guy with a god-tier complex, like you, could live with? You're even more delusional than I took you for.
Luciano: Delusional? What's wrong with war? It gives me a chance to let loose, work out my issues!
Kallen: Keep telling yourself that, asshole.

The Guren threw a disc of Radiant Wave energy at the Percival, destroying its shield. The Percival then charged at the Guren, with its MVS Particle Drill.

Luciano: Got you, now!
Kallen: Think so?

The Guren drew its fork knife, which had become an MVS weapon, and shattered the Particle Drill, with a hard swipe. The Percival then tried to attack with the Slash Harken on its head, but was caught in the fork knife.

Luciano: Ha! You fool! I still have my Hadron Cannons-!

As the Percival tried to fire its hip-mounted Hadron Cannons, the Guren launched its Slash Harkens, destroying them.

Luciano: What?!

The Guren then grabbed the Percival, with its Radiant Wave Surger arm.

Kallen: I think I realized something, Vampire of Britannia. You value your own narcissistic life.
Luciano: You...! You can't do this! You can't do this, to me! I'm better than every human out there! I'm the greatest, I'm supposed to be the Knight of One! You can't threaten a god on Earth!
Kallen: Just shut up, you douchebag failure.

The Percival then started deteriorating from the Radiant Wave energy attacking it, Luciano starting to get wounded, as well.

Luciano: I'm the apex of humanity! An Eleven can't kill the likes of me!

The Percival exploded, but wasn't destroyed, as it fell to the city below.

Gino: Thank you, kindly, Kallen!
Anya: I think I'll remember that, forever.
Kallen: Next contender!
Suzaku: Little help!?

The Lancelot Conquista kicked the Lancelot Sigma away, as the Galahad flew next to Sigma and the Guren, Mordred and Tristan joined with Suzaku.

Bismarck: You've improved, quite a bit, Gino, Anya.
Gino: And, you still prove to be a badass, fighting with one eye.
Anya: I learned to have a heart. Emotions will come, later.
Kallen: Not upset about losing that Vampire, are you?
Bismarck: ...Would you be surprised, if I said no?
Suzaku: Sigma's still as tough as ever...! I think we'll need both Jeremiah and Zero, to take him down!
Sigma: Die...! All of you rebellious humans will die!
Jeremiah: Ask for my aid, and you shall have it.

As the Lancelot Sigma charged, again, the Okuninushi rammed into it, still in its Siegfried Armor form, launching it back.

Jeremiah: I make orange look better, AI.
Sigma: Go to hell!

The Lancelot Sigma aimed its minigun, but was destroyed by the hyper-velocity cannon under the Okuninushi.

Jeremiah: Like it? I call it the Revenant Cannon.
Sigma: Soon, it will be called scrap! Kill them all! Outnumber them!

A large number of Knightmares approached Sigma's position, but the Guren darted to where they were, returning shortly afterward as they exploded.

Kallen: Sorry, what was that? I saw some bugs that needed squishing.
Bismarck: Ah, so you really are an ace. Not bad, at all. Kozuki, I believe it was?
Sigma: Talking, talking, talking...! Wake did so much talking...! Kill Wake! Kill everyone!
Suzaku: So, we actually did some damage, huh?
Kallen: Don't worry, I'll do to him what I did to Luciano.
Sigma: (inhuman roar)
Kallen: ...Wow. First time I ever touched a nerve.
Suzaku: I think you're figuring out how Alistair feels, every time he does that, on purpose.

The fight resumed, with the Galahad engaging the Mordred and Tristan, while the Guren and Lancelot Conquista attacked the Lancelot Sigma. The Guren used its Radiant Wave Beam to destroy Sigma's missiles, before the could be fired, and the Lancelot Conquista kept striking him with its MVS swords. When Sigma went to attack, again, his Lancelot's arms got restrained by Slash Harkens that resembled whips, with edges on the cables, which then cut off the arms, and returned to the blue Vincent that launched them, an upgrade wanted by its pilot. The Vincent was accompanied by the Gawain Nexus, a gray Sutherland with bladed tonfas, a turquoise Gloucester with MVS swords instead of a spear, and a black Burai, with upgrades to its armor.

Seth: Sorry about the wait. Had to pick up some friends and upgrades.
Bautista: It takes two to pilot the Gawain, and I prefer being a powerhouse.
Agent Florida: Good to be back in action, even if it is at the last second.
Agent Carolina: I've needed this therapy, for a long, long time.
Tex: Oh, you have no idea.
Null: I will protect everyone, no matter what. I won't run!
Sigma: Traitors...! Defeating me...?! Impossible...!
Seth: Catch you on the flipside. Again.

The Gawain Nexus destroyed the Lancelot Sigma with its Hadron Cannons, Sigma yelling in pain, as he left the system of his Knightmare. The Zangetsu had some trouble fighting off Zanzibar's Vincent, but managed to counter with several strikes with both of its Brake Swords, barely damaging the Vincent.

Tohdoh: Damn, are these guys good with engineering! Can't even make a scratch!
Zanzibar: By my pride as a soldier of the Confederate Enclave, I will end you, and establish our rule!
Tohdoh: You're just another lunatic to put down, from where I'm sitting.
Zanzibar: Eleven fool! Die!

Zanzibar's Vincent went to attack, again, but was attacked by the wrist-mounted guns of the commander Akatsukis, then struck by their chainsaw swords, in unison. The Vincent was then finished off, by the Omoikane, making rapid, yet strong cuts, with its MVS scissor blades.

Zanzibar: You're no heroes, terrorists! You're the scourge of humanity!

Zanzibar's Vincent fled from the battle, returning to the Yorktown. The Galahad was still having trouble, against the new weapons of both the Mordred and the Tristan.

Bismarck: Those weapons are as effective as they are fitting...!
Gino: Oh, we haven't scratched the surface.
Suzaku: Unison attack, now!
Anya: Roger.

The Mordred fired its Stark Hadron Cannon, and the Lancelot Conquista fired its Hadron Blaster, making contact with the Galahad, which activated its Blaze Luminous, blocking the attacks. After the Hadron fire was finished, the Tristan fired its Failnaught Crossbow, piercing the Blaze Luminous.

Bismarck: Such power...! I must retreat!

The Galahad fled from the battle, and the Black Knights and Tokyo Mavericks Knightmares set their weapons at the Yorktown, as the Ikaruga prepared to fire its Hadron Cannons.

Ohgi: It's over, for you! The world belongs to humanity, not one man! Fire!

The Ikaruga fired its Hadron Cannons, and every allied Knightmare opened fire on the Yorktown, breaking through the Blaze Luminous and causing immense damage to it, forcing it to flee from Tokyo.

Sears: Not even a chance to strike... This bodes poorly, for such foolish people. Nonetheless, the WMD is still in play.

As Britannian reinforcements started appearing, Luciano awoke, in his wrecked Percival, wholeheartedly enraged at what had transpired, and flew the Percival back into the sky.

Kallen: You, again? I think I need to double tap, more often.
Luciano: Enough! I am a hundred and fifty percent done! You want to die? I'll gladly kill all of you, at once! And, if you want me to get urban, fine! I'm sick of you shitheads thinking you're better than me! I'm on top! Nobody else! I'll prove it!

The Percival drew what seemed like an SMG, until it extended into some sort of launcher.

Kallen: You've got a peashooter?
Suzaku: Wait, that's impossible!

Inside the Avalon, Schneizel stood up, shocked to see what the Percival was holding.

Schneizel: A F.L.E.I.J.A.?! Where did he get that?!
Kanon: We've got a snitch!

Kanon pointed at a communications officer, talking with Luciano.

Communications Officer: Sir Bradley, you are now authorized to use the F.L.E.I.J.A., and destroy everyone in the blast radius-

Schneizel snapped the officer's neck, and tossed the corpse aside, and broadcasted a message to all Knightmares.

Schneizel: Attention all units! Attention all units! The Percival has gone rogue! It's carrying a weapon of mass destruction, and must be stopped! I repeat, do not let the Knight of Ten fire that nuke!

Meanwhile, at Kyoto, the Masakado finished off the last Enclave Knightmare, and heard Schneizel's message, from his connection with Kallen.

Alistair: What did he say?!
Kallen: (over screen) He's got a nuke?! Dammit, I should've used the revolver!

Alistair's eyes widened, as the Masakado dashed off toward Tokyo. Alistair put the Masakado's speed beyond its limits, heating up the Grudge Armor.

Back in Tokyo, the Percival aimed the launcher straight at the ground.

Luciano: Every one of you can go to Hell, and rot! FUCK THIS CITY!
Suzaku: NOOOO!

The Lancelot Conquista pushed the launchers aim away from the city, just in time for the F.L.E.I.J.A. to be launched, aimed at the ocean, instead. Rising from the ocean were Civility submarines, which were then caught in the spherical blast of the weapon, which glowed bright pink. After the explosion subsided, there was a round dent in the ocean, where the explosion was, water quickly filling it up.

Suzaku: Holy...shit...
Kallen: Oh, Alistair's not gonna be happy, about that one.
Lelouch: So...was that the Geass command, or...?
Suzaku: No, that was all me.

Schneizel shook from the sight of the explosion, and sat in his seat, sighing in relief.

Schneizel: That was... That was a close one. Make sure Luciano stays dead, please.
Kanon: Taking over the traitorous officer's role, now. The Masakado's shown up, on radar! Fifteen thousand meters!
Schneizel: He must've heard about the nuke. Hopefully, he'll get his share of kicking the shit out of that-
Kanon: Eight thousand meters!
Schneizal: What?! How's it going that fast?!
Kanon: I don't know! Five thousand meters! (pauses) Zero meters!

The Masakado stopped right in the center of the battlefield, its Grudge Armor burning red hot, as it fell off, piece by piece. The Masakado's true form, as well as the limits of its abilities and weapons had been released, its true colors of yellow, white and blue made known to all that looked at it. The Masakado looked at the result of the F.L.E.I.J.A. then at the Knightmares who stopped fighting.

Alistair: Who did that?

Every Knightmare on the battlefield immediately pointed a finger at the Percival, then got some distance from the two Knightmares.

Luciano: Oh, have you come, for a second round, Wake!? Good! I'll tear you limb from limb, like the plebe that you are! (Percival tries firing launcher again, clicks empty) What?! Why is there only one?! No matter, I'll still win-!

When Luciano looked at the Masakado, it was already gone.

Luciano: What?! Where did he-?!

The Percival was bashed downward, by the blunt end of the Masakado's Godslayer MVS, and bounced off the ground, spinning. The Masakado then kicked the Percival back toward the sky, and finished it off with its chest-mounted Hadron Cannon.

Luciano: Impossible! There's no way this can be happening! Wait...! Nobody told me that Alistair Wake and the Son of Liberty were the same person-!

Luciano could not finish his sentence, as he was killed, and the Percival did not explode, but was still destroyed, leaving no ashes, when the Hadron Cannon stopped firing. The Masakado flew back up into the sky, and looked at all the Britannian Knightmares.

Alistair: Who's next?
Lelouch: Wow, would you look at the time!? It's time I went to bed!
Suzaku: I think I'll leave the rest to you, Alistair!
Kallen: I'll be at the Ikaruga, if you need me!
Lelouch, Suzaku and Kallen: (in unison) 'Kay, bye!

The Shinkiro, Lancelot Conquista and Guren S.E.I.T.E.N. sped away from the battlefield and back onto the Ikaruga, as did the remaining allied Knightmares. Schneizel was wide-eyed and motionless, as he looked at the Masakado, floating in place.

Schneizel: Okay... Don't make any sudden moves. Wait until he goes back onto the Yatagarasu...if you want to live.
Kanon: When do you think it will arrive?
Schneizel: I don't know. Just...don't...move.

Unknown Britannian flagship, 8:40 p.m. Charles sat in his seat on the bridge, as his new ship made its way to Japan.

Charles: Are the preparations nearing completion?
Britannian Commander: Yes, sir. Our operatives at the Thought Elevator in Area 11 are nearly finished.
Charles: Good. (thinking) After all these years, my plan will finally be complete. As long as the Black Knights and Tokyo Mavericks are destroyed, once we arrive, everything will be perfect. I know you'll be by my side, soon enough, for this, Marianne.
Britannian Commander: Your Majesty, was it truly wise to not bring the rest of the Knights of the Round with us?
Charles: (out loud) There is no need. They shall defend our homeland, as will Bismarck. Do not falter, and do not surrender. The terrorists' days are numbered.

Meanwhile, in Tokyo, the battle for the defense of Japan continues, as the Ikaruga shot down some Britannian airships, with its large cannon, the other turrets shooting at Knightmares in range.

Ohgi: They've really built up their forces, since our imprisonment!
Minase: Oh, we've got a problem.
Ohgi: Don't tell me. Knights of the Round?
Hinata: ...For the most part.
Ayame: We've picked up signals from the Yorktown, Knights of the Round, Zanzibar, Agents of Civility and their AIs. Sigma is one of them.
Tamaki: He's still kicking?! That's bullshit!
Suzaku: I agree, Tamaki! Alistair and I killed him!
Zero: The same could've been said about the Knight of Ten.
Suzaku: Okay, fair enough.
Ohgi: Be careful, about the Yorktown. Without the Yatagarasu, the Ikaruga barely has a chance at piercing through the Blaze Luminous.
Zero: Are Gino, Anya and Alpha ready?
Gino: On our way out!

The Mordred, Tristan and Vincent Alpha launch out of the Ikaruga, Alpha's Knightmare having some recent upgrades to its arsenal. Then, the Okuninushi joined the fray, surrounded by armor from the Siegfried, and covering its body with it. The armor itself had missiles, Slayer Harkens, and a cannon on the bottom.

Jeremiah: This upgrade is very fantastic. Just what I had in mind.
Zero: I'll bet, Jeremiah. What's the status of our American friends?
Jeremiah: They'll be along, shortly. They had to pick up some friends. In the meantime...

Some Britannian Knightmares surrounded the Okuninushi, recognizing Jeremiah.

Britannian Soldier A: It's you! Orange!
Britannian Soldier B: Orange? The traitor, Orange?
Jeremiah: Ah, yes... Orange. (smirks) That's the name of my loyalty.

The Okuninushi destroyed the Knightmares with its Slayer Harkens, piercing through the cockpits. Suddenly, several customized Knightmares entered the battle, belonging to Civility.

Zero: Agents and AIs, all around.
Suzaku: Still at it, after V.V.'s death?
Agent California: The next of kin is our new Director.
Agent Louisiana: You can't eradicate our organization, by simply killing the leader.
Garuda: Civility is infinite. We are strength, and our glory will be that of Britannia.
Cerberus: No matter what you do, you'll all die! And, I'll be cheering at your demise!
Bathory: You humans lead such meaningless lives. It's only natural that we machines take it, from you. (giggles, sinister tone) I want it to rain blood!
Zero: Right. Serial killer rich bitch. So, who's in the emerald Vincent? Some tool?
Suzaku: That would be Garuda. Definite leadership skills, but, like you said, he's a tool.
Zero: Kinda running low on names, huh?
Suzaku: Well, they certainly still make sense. Garuda's got some smarts on him, like the creature he's named after.
Zero: However, his flaw is very obvious?
Suzaku: Yep!
Garuda: Sigma shall soon arrive, along with the Knight of Ten. The Knight of One will soon follow.
Zero: Bring it on, then.

The Shinkiro engaged Garuda's Vincent, while the Lancelot Conquista fought against California's Vincent, and Tohdoh's group clashed with Cerberus, Bathory and Louisiana's Knightmares. The Lancelot's MVS blades quickly traded swings with California's Vincent, sparks flying with each impact of the blades.

Agent California: Not bad, young one. I'm surprised you can keep up with me.
Suzaku: I've had practice. Plus, speed's kind of my thing.
Agent California: I'm certain. Now, let's see you handle my Geass!

Agent California's bangs were held back, revealing her Geass, increasing the speed of her Knightmare's attacks. However, Suzaku's eyes began glowing red, and heard Lelouch's voice, as well as Alistair's.

Lelouch and Alistair: (in unison) Live!

Lelouch's Geass command, on top of Alistair's Geass persuasion, to rescue him from Sigma, made him easily dodge Agent California's attacks.

Suzaku: Can't kill a man with a dead death wish, can you?
Agent California: Little brat!

As the Lancelot continued fighting California's Vincent, the Zangetsu blocked the attacks of Cerberus and Bathory's Gloucesters, and the Akatsukis of Asahina, Chiba and Urabe countered, with their swords, damaging the Knightmares, some.

Bathory: You cannot kill the new blood god, humans!
Asahina: Wow... Didn't know psychosis could cause such gruff.
Chiba: On a girl's voice, too. (shudders)
Urabe: Seriously. Just...creepy.
Tohdoh: And, that punk is loyal, like a dog. Guess that's where you got the name.
Cerberus: Shut up!

The Omoikane clashed with Louisiana's Gloucester, their MVS scissor blades sparking upon contact.

Agent Louisiana: You've gotten better, Kanda.
Kanda: I fought an army of Primeblood ace Knightmares, by myself. Why wouldn't I get better, to stand a chance against douchebags, like you?
Agent Louisiana: Very impressive, indeed. However, you stand no chance, against our full might.
Kanda: Keep your opinions to yourself, baldy.

The battle kept going, as the Shinkiro fired its wrist mounted Hadron Cannons at Garuda's Vincent, which blocked the shots with its Blaze Luminous.

Garuda: Your tactics and combat skill precede you, Zero.
Lelouch: I can say the same, about you. Though, you did fight Alistair, for an amount of time.
Garuda: If you think the amount of aces you have on your side will increase your chances of victory, you're mistaken.
Lelouch: And, that's the thing, you hunk of junk. I've learned something from Alistair. If the odds have been against us, from the start...then, we've already won.

The Shinkiro drew its Tesla Cannon and fired it at Garuda's Vincent, damaging both it and the Blaze Luminous. The Shinkiro then brought out its axe and repeatedly cut the Vincent, damaging its Float Unit, as well.

Garuda: Well played. So, you've been learning from Alistair. Next time, you will die. (Vincent explodes)
Lelouch: Stoic, arrogant punk...

The Zangetsu and commander type Akatsukis struck both Bathory's and Cerberus' Gloucesters, damaging them severely.

Cerberus: Damn it all! This isn't over, terrorists!
Bathory: (laughs) It'll be a maelstrom!

Both Gloucesters exploded, just as the Omoikane cut off the limbs of Lousiana's Arbiter.

Agent Louisiana: Damnation! You've yet to see the end of me, little lady! (Arbiter flees from battlefield)
Kanda: God, that accent is somewhat freaky...

The Lancelot Conquista gained the upper hand against California's Vincent, and destroyed all of its knives, while dealing heavy damage to it.

Agent California: Shit, shit, shit! What is it, with you do-gooders, anyway!? You'll never amount to anything! ...Narc! (Vincent flies away)
Suzaku: Huh. Never been called a narc, before. ...That insult made, no sense, now that I think about it.
Lelouch: The first wave's been dealt with. Everybody rest up, and-

Before Lelouch could finish his sentance, Slash Harkens came from several Vincent units, and restrained its arms and legs. Then, the Percival flew up to the Shinkiro.

Luciano: Hello, Zero! Are we late to the party?
Lelouch: (under breath) Oh, not this asshole...

Tokyo, 8:23 p.m. The Ikaruga was in position above the city, and several ground force Knightmares took their positions, as well as the Shinkiro, Akatsukis and Koga Saburo.

Zero: Still working on that Float Unit, for the Tenkai?
Guilford: Afraid so. Hopefully, Darlton can keep the destruction to a minimum.
Zero: He's a heavy weapons guy, so he better be careful.
Guilford: He and his sons are fighters, so whatever ground units come by, they'll be ready. Plus, all the other Burais on standby, in the construction sites.
Zero: Oh, yeah, we never got to use those...
Guilford: There are loads of designs for Burais and Sutherlands.
Ohgi: Done talking, guys?
Guilford: Yeah, I ran out of things to talk about- Wow, that's a lot.

Zero and Guilford saw the large army of Britannian airships and Knightmares approaching Tokyo, as well as some Enclave Knightmares.

Zero: At first, I thought to use the Gefjun Disturbers on the trains to get into Tokyo. But, it's good how plans change.

Zero pressed a button on a detonator, and the Gefjun Disturbers activated, projecting waves outside the city, rather than inside it. The approaching Knightmares and battleships suddenly stopped and fell to the ground, exploding before they could reach Tokyo.

Ohgi: Nicely done!
Tohdoh: Guess they don't have anything other than Sakuradite, to run their Knightmares and ships.
Zero: Unfortunately, I can only use that move, so many times. The generators need a couple minutes to recharge.
Tamaki: Damn...
Zero: What's the status of the Guren?
Lloyd: Almost done! Although, I think the caffeine is starting to wear out.
Rakshata: We're both going to need some sleep, after we're done.
Zero: You've earned it. And, Xingke's condition?
Ohgi: He's out, like a light. That fight with the Knight of One really drained him.
Zero: That must mean Bismarck isn't in top condition, either.
Suzaku: (Lancelot Conquista flies out of Ikaruga) I'm all set, now!
Zero: (thinking) Suzaku... You wanted to save me. I know that. You were right to run off, when you did. I'm not letting you have any more regrets. (out loud) Another wave, incoming! We've got a fight!

Several more airships and Knightmares entered the city, some going to the ground, the rest staying in the air.

Zero: We're not letting these sons of bitches take what isn't theirs, again!
Tohdoh: I've still got some anger to work through. We're paying you back, for the lives you've taken! (Zangetsu charges forward)

Meanwhile, at Kyoto, the Tokyo Mavericks were fighting off the Britannian and Enclave forces, the Masakado slashing through five Gareths and destroying their Hadron Cannons.

Alistair: We're not letting these guys get to Tokyo! Take out as many as you can!
Mavericks: (in unison) Right!
Nunnally: Alistair, the Yorktown seems to be near Tokyo!
Alistair: Then, let's deal with them, quicker! (Masakado dodges plasma blast) Oh, you are so gonna get it!

Back at Tokyo, the battle between the Black Knights and Britannia had begun, gunfire, explosions, clashing melee weapons and energy blasts ringing out across the sky. Sutherlands, Gloucesters, Gareths and Vincents were being destroyed, left and right, by the Black Knights and Tokyo Mavericks Knightmares. In the city, some Enclave Knightmares came upon a construction site, led by a heavily armed and armored Sutherland, called the Sutherland REVO. The REVO approached a Knightmare continuing its construction duties.

Enclave Commander: Hey! If you're not part of the battle, clear out, or die! Hell, we may as well kill you, anyway.
Tokyo Maverick: Oh, I dunno... I've been looking to fight in this thing, for quite some time!

The Powered Type Burai turned around and clamped its scissor claws onto the Sutherland REVO, crushing the armor and electrocuting it, as well as the power armored pilot, inside. The commander yelled as his Knightmare exploded. Before the rest of the Enclave squad could react, a Drill Type Burai jumped down and piereced the cockpit of a Special Weapons Type Sutherland, and a Special Weapons Burai struck a Gloucester with its wrecking ball. Before an Electronic Warfare Type Sutherland could attempt to attack, a Close Combat Sutherland pressed its tonfas against the back of the cockpit.

Black Knight: To be frank, I hate conspiracies, with a passion.

The Close Combat Sutherland shocked the Electronic Warfare Type Sutherland with its electromagnetic tonfas, destroying it.

Back in the skies above Tokyo, the Koga Saburo slashed through an entire squad of Gareths, stopping them from shooting down the Ikaruga.

Koga Saburo: Better than any spear, wouldn't you say?
Guilford: Yeah... With this, I can beat even Vincents.
Koga Saburo: Hey, I never really thought of putting my swords together.
Guilford: They're so thin...yet, so strong.
Koga Saburo: It's not simply the weapons, themselves. It's the one using them.
Guilford: Right... Nonetheless, we will defend this country!

The Shinkiro destroyed several Knightmares with its wrist-mounted Hadron Cannons, and cut apart two with one swing of its axe.

Zero: The weight between me and Suzaku... It's gone... I feel...alive. I haven't forgotten what I have to do...I just needed some invigoration. Suzaku, on me!
Suzaku: Roger, Zero!

The Lancelot Conquista prepared to fire its Hadron Blaster, alongside the Shinkiro, with its Tesla Cannon. Both energy weapons fired upon the airships, destroying the armada.

Suzaku: (smiles) Looks like we make a good team.
Zero: (smiles) We've always been a good team.

Kururugi Shrine, 6:38 p.m., before sunset. Lelouch was pushed into a limo, the door being shut behind him and every door locking. Lelouch panicked a bit, and saw a TV screen turn on, Schneizel appearing on the screen.

Lelouch: Schneizel!
Schneizel: (over screen) Apologies for the rough treatment, Lelouch, they don't know they're about to die.
Lelouch: What are you talking about?
Schneizel: I'm on your side, and I've got an ear to nearly every part of the ground. I know that you asked Guilford to help you.

The previous day, military warehouse in Tokyo. Guilford entered the dark warehouse, looking around and holding a cup of coffee.

Guilford: Alright. I'm here. So, who wants to talk to me?
Lelouch: (approaches Guilford) Hello, Guilford.
Guilford: Hi...yourself. Is there a reason why a high schooler wants to talk to me?
Lelouch: Euphy and Kallen are also high schoolers.
Guilford: Fair. So, what's up?
Lelouch: I need your help. I'm going to the Kururugi Shrine, to talk to an old friend, and I doubt I'll be able to get back to Tokyo, for the battle.
Guilford: Sure, why not? I've got nothing better to do, anyway. (starts drinking coffee)
Lelouch: Oh, I probably should've started with my name. I'm Lelouch Lamperouge.
Guilford: (eyes widen, spits out coffee)

Present day, near Kururugi Shrine. Guilford was in the Koga Saburo, watching Lelouch inside the limo, talking to Schneizel.

Koga Saburo: You think Schneizel can be trusted?
Guilford: Hopefully. He was pretty pissed, when he saw what happened to America. And, he killed the pilots that killed Alistair's parents. At least, that what Cornelia told me.
Koga Saburo: Speaking of which, is she alright?
Guilford: She'll be back in action, in a bit. But, much like Euphemia, she'll kill me, if anything happens to her brother.

Inside the limo, Lelouch calmed down, a little, leaning back in his seat.

Lelouch: So, what's your beef, Schneizel? What do you want?
Schneizel: Well, I planted a bug on Suzaku's uniform, and recorded that whole conversation you had. I've got a copy that can't be manipulated, on my person.
Lelouch: You're blackmailing me, then?
Schneizel: No. I'm taking that mountain-sized weight off your shoulders.
Lelouch: ...What?
Schneizel: The Black Knights will know the truth about you, and keep every amount of trust that they've got. Hell, by also aiding in keeping your secret, that trust will increase.
Lelouch: You know I'm Zero, then? Why are you doing what you do?
Schneizel: I've asked myself that question, the moment I met Alistair, all those years ago. Revenge had no meaning, getting pissed did nothing, either. The only plausible answer I could come up with was...karma. What pissed me off about everything in this world was that people just accepted the new world order that Britannia was bringing about. Every time Britannia took a country, expanding its territory, reflecting the Emperor's ego, the list of shit that they cause keeps getting longer. Racism, discrimination, slaughter of innocents, homeless and the poor, in some cases, their own people. Next thing I know, Charles decides to ally himself with a man who faked insanity for years, just to do even more evil bullshit. So, why do I do this mercenary crap? Because, I can. To reflect the fact that I've learned my lesson on morality, the hard way. And, now, I want the shitstorm that is Britannia to end. The only way to do that...
Lelouch: Is with me, Alistiar, the Tokyo Mavericks and the Black Knights.
Schneizel: Precisely. Britannia, factually speaking, should have ended, when the Roman Empire bit the dust. But, some genius thought to have a conspiracy to keep Britannia alive, and replace England, becoming as dogmatic, territorial and lawful as the same civilization that invaded and conquered them, in the first place.
Lelouch: That's honestly the most accurate description of Britannia I've heard, in a long time.
Schneizel: Thank you.
Lelouch: I'm putting my trust in you, Schneizel. I've been fearing betrayal, for as long as I've been stuck in Japan.
Schneizel: I can tell. Besides, if anything does foul up, call upon the trust of your peers. In the meantime, you need to get your ass moving. Luciano's on the move, and Sigma's still alive.
Lelouch: Shit!

Lelouch kept gazing at the monitor and gave a thumbs up with his left hand, without looking, at the window. The Koga Saburo leaped out and shot its VARIS Rifle at the Gareths guarding the limo, destroying them. The Koga Saburo then used its linked swords to cut the roof off the limo, and Lelouch climbed into its hand, as it flew off.

Guilford: You alright!?
Lelouch: Yeah! We've just gotta get to the Ikaruga, fast! The battle's reaching Tokyo!
Guilford: Alistair's dealing with some Enclave forces that broke through, so we've still got Suzaku, Darlton, his sons, Cornelia and Euphemia!
Lelouch: And, Gino and Anya!
Guilford: Right, forgot about those upgrades. By the way, you might want to change into your outfit. I brought it, with me.
Lelouch: Thank you, Guilford!

Meanwhile, aboard the Yorktown, Sears was on the bridge, sitting in his seat, as his forces prepared to charge for Tokyo.

Sears: Resistance, rebellion, revolution. All of these things are abominable. If these Elevens can't accept the righteous rule of Britannia, let alone the dogma of order, then it's only right that the vermin burn. Luciano Bradley and his Valkyrie Squad. Prepare them. Tonight, the Enclave paves the way for Britannian rule, and the resistance against law and order are to perish.

Aboard the Ikaruga, 2:00 p.m. Rakshata and Lloyd were working on the Guren, with Kallen waiting, impatiently.

Kallen: Is it done, yet!?
Rakshata: No whining. It doesn't make this any faster.
Lloyd: Though, to be fair, Cecile's designing skills are top notch.
Kallen: Speaking of which, where is she?
Lloyd: Oh, I told her to pilot her Sutherland, wherever she wanted. She's an excellent pilot, and her unit has the Blaze Luminous.
Rakshata: Now, that's a marvelous idea. And, I do believe Jeremiah will be please, once he realizes my update to the Okuninushi is complete.
Kallen: With Lloyd's help, right?
Lloyd: Her original design seemed a bit off, so I gave my two cents.
Rakshata: And, what a glorious two cents it was, my friend.
Lloyd: By the way, you should see my gift for Euphemia, under that tarp.

Kallen was confused and removed the tarp covering a Knightmare, and revealed it to be a sort of copy of the Lancelot, with a different style of helmet and a white and light purple paint job.

Kallen: Whoa...
Lloyd: Another of my greatest creations! The Yamato Takeru!
Kallen: It's beautiful... And, that big sword on its back is-
Rakshata: The Kusanagi no Tsurugi. A rather beautiful sword, especially when modeled for Knightmares.
Kallen: Euphie's gonna love this.

Meanwhile, aboard an unknown Britannian flagship, Sears was showing Charles around, his Geass shining behind his glasses.

Hawking: I knew it was the right call, to have your guys make the design work.
Charles: Indeed. This will make a fine vessel. The Great Britannia shall serve as a decoy, to lure those fools into a false sense of victory.
Hawking: The Knightmares have all been loaded up, as well as the ship's weapons.
Charles: Will you not be present?
Hawking: Not the whole time. I'm thinking those brats have figured out a way past the Yorktown's Blaze Luminous. Since the last Director of Civility died, and was your brother, that makes you the new Director. All that I can say is...go nuts. See ya. (leaves bridge)
Charles: To think that my seed would birth such ungrateful, insubordinate and traitorous children. And, the so-called "Americans"... Did our retribution not hinder them, teach them what happens, when you defy the world? Yet, hope lived on, enough to kill even Hawking. So be it. Resist, Numbers. I will show you how meaningless everything truly is.

At the Kururugi Shrine, Suzaku and Lelouch were panting, after having a heated discussion.

Lelouch: Wow... That was... That was a huge weight off my shoulders.
Suzaku: Same, here... We had a lot of shit on our minds, huh?
Lelouch: Yep...
Suzaku: If we kept all that in, we'd be dead, in a few years.
Lelouch: Fair assessment. We should head back, the battle's already started-

Suddenly, Britannian soldiers surrounded Lelouch, aiming their guns at him, and Britannia's latest Knightmare, the Gareth, had emerged, three of them guarding the soldiers.

Lelouch: What the-?!
Britannian Soldier A: Don't move! Lelouch Lamperouge, you're under arrest, for suspicion of terrorism!
Britannian Soldier B: Prince Schneizel wants a word, with you! Move it!
Lelouch: (thinking) Schneizel?! Dammit! If I can't get out of this, the others are screwed!

Suzaku tried to get the soldiers away from Lelouch, but was worried that they might shoot both of them. Suzaku clenched his fist in anxiety and ran off, Lelouch sighing with relief as he was forced down the stairs.

Meanwhile, the Galahad entered the battle, cutting apart Black Knights Knightmares with its MVS Excalibur. The Shen Hu engaged the Galahad, to defend the other units.

Bismarck: Not bad...!
Xingke: So, this is the Knight of One...! I'll do as much damage as I can, before he reaches Tokyo!

The Shen Hu struck at the Galahad with its short sword, but the attacks were blocked, perfectly, the two pilots appearing to be evenly matched.

Bismarck: So, you must be the one that resisted the union between the Chinese Federation and Britannia. I'll admit, you're an impressive fighter. Nonetheless, this will only prove to be a stalemate.
Xingke: Oh, I learned a thing or two about versatility, unlike you.

The Shen Hu drew an SMG and shot at the Galahad, but the shots were blocked by its Blaze Luminous.

Bismarck: What do you know? It is effective.
Xingke: If you've got that, too, then I'll adapt, even more.

The Shen Hu holstered its short sword and gun, and brought out a single-edged spear, which extended in its hands.

Xingke: In the history of China, only one man was fearsome with a spear. That man was the insane chronic traitor Lu Bu. And, you've never fought Lu Bu. Have you?
Bismarck: No...?
Xingke: Allow me to show you some moves, then.

The Shen Hu twirled its spear and sent some fast yet brutal thrusts at the Galahad, which barely blocked the spear, and one strike managed to scratch the armor. Bismarck was shocked that an attack landed, and the Shen Hu swung its spear downward, the Galahad blocking the blow, but moved backward because of the force.

Bismarck: These moves...! They're strong, yet fast and relentless, at the same time! Who was this Lu Bu?!
Xingke: Oh, should I have mentioned that Lu Bu was rather muscular and strong, and people around that time were advised not to pursue him?

The Shen Hu fought with the Galahad, some more, both Knightmares taking damage, but the Galahad's Excalibur was running low on energy, as was the Galahad, itself.

Bismarck: He's good... I've never fought anyone like him, before... However...I can't fight him, in this condition. I can't use the Slash Harkens, they'll be easily destroyed. He must be low on energy, too, so now is the time for a tactical withdrawal.

The Galahad sheathed its MVS greatsword and began backing away.

Xingke: Oh, no, you don't!

The Shen Hu fired its Baryon Cannon, and the Galahad blocked the blast with its Blaze Luminous. After the exchange, both Knightmares were nearly depleted of energy, and the Galahad withdrew from the battle, for repairs.

Xingke: No wonder he's the Knight of One... He's gonna have some new tricks, I'm sure of it...

Thanks for the llama :happybounce:

I knew a llama once. At least I thought I knew him. I mean, how well can anyone really know anyone, much less a llama. With their air of mystery and thinly veiled contempt. It’s hard. But I digress.

His name was Kevin. But for reasons I will never understand, he would only ever answer to Albert. Identity issues aside, things started out okay. The usual introductory sniffing and sneezing went well, despite his allergies, but then things started going downhill during the ritual licking phase of the pleasantries. We pushed through. And had it not been for the spitting, we might have even been able to make it work, but alas, after just 3 seconds of bittersweet brotherhood, we finally decided to part ways. It’s kind of sad, when you think about it. Spitting seems like such an innocent thing to fight over, but he was pretty adamant that I should stop and that was just never going to happen. We might have overcome that issue, but Kevin, like all llamas, was very competitive. First came the stench competitions. Then it was belching contests. And lastly, a painstaking count to see which one was hairier. You can clearly see why our relationship was doomed. The poor fellow was a bit of a sore loser.

So he snuck out, taking with him a failed friendship, an obliviously optimistic dread of the future, and my sixth favorite toothbrush. Now that he is gone, I can honestly say, it's for the best. He was too much of a chick magnet anyway and who needs that drama? :shakefist:

 

Full disclaimer, as Kevin’s official biographer, a position of which he blackmailed me into (don’t ask), I’ve been instructed to inform you about his ongoing series. The journey starts here with The Kevin Chronicles - Chapter 1, and this gallery contains the rest. You should check it out. 

*End of cue card*

 

And don't worry, they're pretty short.
No pressure though, only if you want.

:D
