The Aquila and the Rising Sun--The Imperium of Man Comes to Gensokyo:

 126 l3wt, Wed, 5th Jan '11 10:56:59 AM from Land of Hills and Fjords Get RP Mod Relationship Status: Get out of here, STALKER
The captain sighs another one of those telling, unspeakably heavy sighs. The one that he usually reserves for news about invasions and such.

"Befallen would seem to be the right word, my Lord. Brother Martin came by just a moment ago, accompanying him was a... Um, well, you see... His own suit of power armour. The one that belonged to sergeant Correl. It seems to have taken on life of its own, and claims to be one of us. Its machine spirit, if I've captured the situation correctly, now has taken the shape of... Um, a woman. I put the situation on hold to check in with you, Sir."

Suika threw up her own salute, though it didn't help that she was swaying as she stood. She looked to the new guy and said "Whats up? I'm Suika Ibuki, Deva of the mountain. Nice to meet ya." She seemed to be the friendliest native Drake has met so far.

There's not much more I can tell you without showing you where it happened. The last scene was up in the mountains in the area above the Moriya Shrine.

Remilia smiled and rose up.

Come, let's go hiking!

"Sounds good to me. We still have the whole day ahead of us."

He taps into his vox, calling Corollianus over the team's private channel as he heads for the door.

"We've finished up here, we'll be heading for Youkai Mountain now to look into these murders. You two are free to do what you please for the time being. Keep Drake alive for me, will you? Oh, and see if you can't find him something to drive. Maybe that'd cheer the kid up."

Zee spread her wings and stretched. "I like the sound of that; it will be good to feel the wind in my wings again."

Releasing the 'talk' button for the vox, Arcturus turns to the Saint.

"...And I find myself asking for a lift again. For purely practical reasons, of course. Not like I enjoy it or anything."

Remilia got a white parasol from the stand near the door, and looked over at her sister.

Are you coming with us, Flandre? It's still a bit sunny, but the flight will do you good.

Flandre frowned at the sun, but she took to the air as well. She grabbed a red parasol and held it over her head, not really looking all that pleased. Looking refined has always been Remilia's specialty, not Flandre's. She hovered over to her sister and said "Ready!"

Zee turned to her husband, one hand cocked on her hip, and arched an eyebrow as her lips curled into a knowing smirk.

"Of course you don't, dear."

Drake raised an eyebrow as he saw Corollianus salute the girl, who responded in kind.

"I'm fine... my name's Drake Lycetta, and I'm a Trooper. Nice to meet you... 'Suika'?" The name seemed almost alien to his tongue, used as it was to High Gothic and similar languages.

He clears his throat, handing her another parasol. This household kept a lot of those around, for obvious reasons. Once they get outside, he oh-so-casually puts his arm over her shoulders, returning the smirk.

"Why, it appears I really am that transparent. Let's go."

—Arcturus is met with an affirmative from the stormtrooper.—

-"C'mon trooper, let's see if we can't show you the drive track."-


— Zolomon let loose one of his own sighs, of the sort stating that surprise should not be possible for him, but still rears its head even now. —

Bring her in. Does she know the rites of our Chapter?
Proud member of the IAA

What's the point of being grown up if you can't act childish?
Trogg, having reduced his stone to pebbles, gets up and waves to Arcturus and Zee.

Arcturus blinks at the Ogryn, somewhat perplexed.

"Uh... Hello, Trogg. Didn't you find the others? They used the train."

Trogg stares at Arcturus confused. "....Train? Trogg am see something go away when Trogg went out of mightybig house. Thingy was big and metal and nobody was left in spaceship so Trogg stay out here."

Then...we fly.

Remilia lifted off from the ground and accelerated. Soon, Gensokyo was beneath her, the mystical land spreading in all direction.

The rebuilt Human Village had grown to occupy the entire circumference of the nearly circular Crater Lake, and the distant colossus of the Imperial Mountain loomed in the distance. Everywhere, change was visible. Remilia had grown used to them over the years, but it still felt strange. What always caught her eye, however, was the shallow lake near the Youkai Mountain.

It was the lake the Kappa used when they launched their new ships from their mysterious workshops. The lake was very wide, yet the later ships experienced problems clearing it. Remilia wondered how long it would take for them to make ships so large that they would have to expand...or start making them outside, like she had seen the Imperials do it in their great industrial worlds.

"Oh... Right."

He pauses, trying to find a way to talk so that the ogryn might understand. He couldn't very well take him with him where they were going, and the Oni were much more likely to accomodate one such as he. He motions for Zee to wait a little bit.

"Okay, Trogg. Listen very carefully now. Go over there, "

He points at the station.

"And wait for the big metal box to come back. Don't be scared of it, it won't hurt you so long as you don't get in its way. Then, when the metal box opens, go inside and tell the girly inside you want to go to the dark cave place. Once she tells you you are there, get off the metal box. Okay? Then, um, "

He tries to remember the name Trogg used for Corollianus.

"Corry will be waiting to meet you. If you get confused, push the panic button on your wrist. That will let us find you if you get lost. Alright?"

"O-kay Arky." Says Trogg. He walks to the station and waits patiently.

Satisfied that Trogg had a lesser chance than usual to actually get lost now, Arcturus takes a brief moment to ask one of the Krieger NCO's milling about if they could post a guard detail by the Lysander. His reply comes in the form of a snapped salute and a nod. Quiet folk, Kriegers. He then nods for Zee to take them up, holding on tight, careful not to get in the way of the wings. He wasn't entirely sure how the areodynamics would work, as two fully grown human beings would be a bit much for one set of human-proportioned wings to carry, especially since they didn't have hollow bones, but then again, so long as it worked he wouldn't try to think too hard about it.


Orwell thought it over for a bit.

"I haven't spoken to her of our rites, my Lord. She does appear to know of our motto, and her general attitude seemed to be consistent with what you'd expect from one of us. That is all I had the opportunity to ask for before I contacted you."

He turns away from the 'lith for a moment, activating the intercom instead.

"Battle-Brother Martin, you and the anomaly are to return to the command room. The Chapter Master wishes to speak with you."

Whisperer in Darkness
Zee clasped her arms tightly around her husband's chest, a coy smile on her lips. "Hold on tight, lover; this could get a little rough."

With that, the angelic vampire spread her mighty wings and flapped once, propelling them ten feet off the ground. A few more flaps, and they were soaring high into the air, the Scarlet Devil Mansion rapidly dwindling to a simple pinprick as they left behind the land below.

Zee's wings flared as they caught a thermal, and the Living Saint and her passenger rose even higher in the air, the wind whipping at their faces like the tongue of a hound, overjoyed at seeing its master after so many years apart. The vampire closed her eys and arched her head back, allowing the breeze to flow through her hair and whip it about her head in a halo of gold.

"As long as I live, I'll never get tired of this!" she called to her husband, raising her voice in order to be heard over the roaring wind. "I could stay up here all day."

Arcturus had remained silent on the way up, admiring the view. Youkai Mountain was clearly visible in the distance. A Kappa ship, one of their larger frigates, if Arcturus wasn't entirely mistaken, had just finished construction, and was taking off, a bright spark on the horizon signaling the firing of its engines as it churned its way through the atmosphere, headed for the stars.

"I hear that! Now where are the other two?"

He scans the air for the other two vampires. Perhaps Flandre had decided on being playful again and was hiding in the neares bank of clouds. Paid off to stay alert sometimes...

Zee's crimson eyes scanned the horizon, quickly locating her mistress. It had been no more than a pinprick in the clouds, but she knew who it was even from such a great distance; her vampiric senses, and the link they shared as master and servant, allowed her to discern Remilia's location with ease.

A few powerful flaps of her wings, and the Living Saint closed the gap between them, drawing up close to Remilia.

Dynamite with a Laser Beam
Flandre was flying along with her sister, though a bit more rambunctiously. She would look around at everything, try to get a closer look, then move back to her sister's side.


The train zoomed along the tracks again as it made its way to the Scarlet Devil Mansion. It pulled up to a stop right in front of Trogg and the door slid open.
Trogg stepped into the train, looking at his surroundings.

The last glimmer of sunlight was slowly disappearing beneath the horizon as the group flied.

"The sun'll be down in just a few minutes, you can pick up speed any moment now!"
