For The Love Of Life 1 5 9

[15:02] * Yanmei was in a sour mood by the time she transitioned from the sterile sick bay area to the elevator that would carry her to floor where the EVA hangar was. -
[15:05] <Yanmei> She had intended to give William a quick hello, no matter how unresponsive he actually was, and to make friendly talk with anyone else at his bedside. Unfortunately, while there had indeed been a second visitor, things hadn't gone smoothly between them at all. -
[15:10] <Yanmei> Worse yet, she hadn't even gotten around to saying hello to William either. So, all that was left to her was to kick herself mentally, grumbling quietly under her breath as she went higher and higher. -
[15:16] <Yanmei> The elevators of the Dorian Lachapelle operated at a standard, regular speed… and so it was just a minute or two before the doors opened again, revealing the oddly practical hallway that would take her to the hangar. Yanmei smoothed down her jacket and flounced onward… only to spot someone else coming toward her and the elevator…#
[15:43] <Minaplo> [It was Misato! Sporting her Admiral's uniform, she was quickly clopping towards Yanmei and her elevator, waving cheerfully as she approached…]
[15:45] * Yanmei shot a quick glance over her shoulder, but the elevator doors were already sliding to a close. -Shit-. Nothing to do but to bite the bullet or risk looking ridiculous. And she had had quite enough of looking ridiulous for one day. -
[15:46] <Yanmei> "Katsuragi~ Hi~!"
[15:56] <Minaplo> ["Hey! How's it going?" She asked. She was already close to her now, turning on her heel, grabbing her arm…]
[16:03] <Yanmei> "Just seeing how 04's repairs are going?" She tried not to stiffen at the arm-touch. Natural! Act natural! "I'm surprised you and the other ODs aren't having some last-minute get-together. Drinks, arguments, comradery, so on…"
[16:05] <Minaplo> [She rolled her eyes. "There's four ODs on this trip. Marianne's inspecting the battleship, Harken's having dinner with Asuka, Hachi and Go. Alphonse… I'll leave it to your imagination~"]
[16:12] <Yanmei> "Uh huh. And don't you have someone to comfort-snuggle as well~?"
[16:16] <Minaplo> ["All in good time." Said Misato with a wink. "How is sweet little Isaiah-chan, anyway?"]
[16:19] <Yanmei> "I -meant- that you should snuggle Guillory? Leave poor Isaiah to finish his pre-mission nap in peace."
[16:20] <Minaplo> ["He's napping? No wonder you're down here, then."]
[16:23] <Yanmei> "I've been busy all morning, I'll have you know." Yanmei tossed her hair. "Had to see to the evacuations. As a bonus I had to bitch out certain people trying to dodge it."
[16:23] <Minaplo> ["Like who?"]
[16:23] <Yanmei> "Idiot Blue. Still can't get him to budge."
[16:26] <Minaplo> ["Heh heh. Trust me, you drew the easy option."]
[16:29] <Yanmei> "And what's the difficult one?" she was scowling. "I was thinking about having some muscle drag him to one of the departing shuttles by force, but it sounds like they'd already been by there…"
[16:30] <Minaplo> ["Rei had to convince Eevi to go." Said Misato, smirking. "And I was there to see Raffy deal with little Suzie…"]#
[16:34] <Yanmei> "Huh. Suzie put up a fight? But there are so many killer robots at Asgard…"
[16:45] <Minaplo> ["That's what we said, too. But, she's little and scared."-
[16:45] <Minaplo> ["Oh, that reminds me. Marianne wanted to put Mr. Blue on boarding defense duty."]
[16:49] * Yanmei waved a hand tiredly. "She can do what she wants with him."
[16:56] <Minaplo> ["Not going to veto~? Hmm, maybe he's worn you down too much after all. Point to Blue?"]
[16:58] <Yanmei> "What?! Never! It's just common sense to at least put him to work if he's going to be a stubborn jerk? It'll teach him a lesson about not evacuating when he's told."
[17:03] <Minaplo> ["Oh, I get it~" Misato beamed. "What a wise leader you've become…"]
[17:04] <Yanmei> "So you've noticed, huh~?" Yanmei preened. "Make sure Marianne knows to give him a really tough job?"
[17:05] <Minaplo> ["What, fighting angelspawn isn't enough for you?"]
[17:07] <Yanmei> "Yeah, but he was all, like, 'I'm gonna be a superhero' when I warned him about the spawn earlier. So we have to make sure he isn't having -fun- when he's fighting them."
[17:10] <Minaplo> ["Hahah. You leave that to us."]
[17:11] <Yanmei> "Good. I'm counting on you guys~"#
[13:21] <Minaplo> ["To be honest, we pretty much expect to be swarmed by spawn the second we enter." Said Misato. "He'll be busy, at least. We've been organising our defensive squads… You've probably heard of the basic outline, though."]
[13:23] <Yanmei> "I have. But… are they really going to just zip past the ship's outer defenses like that?"
[13:25] <Minaplo> ["It'd what I'd do, if I could spare it."]
[13:27] <Yanmei> "Hrmph." Yanmei folded her arms, frowning.
[13:34] <Minaplo> ["What?"]
[13:36] <Yanmei> "I'd hoped the evacuations would be just a precaution, not a necessity."
[13:38] <Minaplo> ["Metatron'll throw everything she has at us, you know that."-
[13:48] <Minaplo> [They passed into the hangar now, which was abuzz with activity. Technicians ran to and fro with equipment and materiel, whilst above them in their pens, the Evangelions stood, being repaired in some cases, prepared in others.]
[13:54] * Yanmei eyed 04 in particular. Suddenly, she felt uneasy again about having Misato along with her. -
[13:55] <Yanmei> "We'll just have to not drag this out, then," she said firmly, and tossed her hair.
[13:57] <Minaplo> ["That would be appreciated." Said Misato happily. "I'd hate to get bored waiting for you to finish the job…"]
[14:04] <Yanmei> "What did you guys do the last time, while we were getting that lance? We were gone for a while."
[14:07] <Minaplo> ["Waited, mostly. Loooots of waiting. You really took your time, you know- so careless!"]
[14:16] <Yanmei> "That wasn't -our- fault!" Yanmei huffed. "And anyway, you guys should have had some fun to take your minds off things. I know I would have."
[14:16] <Minaplo> ["Nope, it was high alert for every one of those hours. I was on shift for sixteen hours in one sitting. That means you owe me."]
[14:23] <Yanmei> "Whoever personally created the schedule owes you," she said carefully. "I'm completely innocent?"
[14:23] <Minaplo> ["You haven't been innocent since the day you were born…"-
[14:25] <Minaplo> [There was another pilot walking around here as well. An Ayanami with light red hair; Roku. She was walking around one of the pens which contained EVA-04, staring up at it.]
[14:34] * Yanmei stared over at her worriedly. Did Roku see anything out of place? Quickly, she tried to catalog the physical damage that could have possibly been left behind… and then quickly forced herself to stop before she made herself ill, edging slightly away from Misato. "Has she been around here all day?"
[15:00] <Minaplo> ["Quite a lot. I was thinking about asking her to leave, since she's kinda in the way…"]
[15:07] <Yanmei> "Hm." Yanmei raised an arm to wave at her, and also raised her voice so that it would carry across to where she stood. "Hey Roku~~"
[15:15] <Minaplo> [Roku turned her head to look at Yanmei. She did not smile or wave back.]
[15:23] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei dropped her arm and walked over toward her, undeterred.
[16:07] <Minaplo> [Roku continued to watch her as she approached.]
[16:09] <Yanmei> "Something wrong with it?" She stood next to her, arms folded, staring up at 04. Had Misato followed?
[16:12] <Minaplo> [She had.-
[16:14] <Minaplo> ["How did it get damaged?" Asked Roku.]
[16:16] <Yanmei> "Well-" A brief but awkward pause followed. "It was just sort of… there."
[16:17] <Minaplo> [Misato frowned.-
[16:17] <Minaplo> ["Just… There?" Asked Roku again.]#
[16:19] <Yanmei> "There." She echoed, and grimaced faintly. She gestured toward the broken wing. "It was fine one minute, and then it wasn't."
[16:23] <Minaplo> ["You -forgot-?" Asked Roku, frowning.]
[16:28] <Yanmei> "No! Don't be silly. It's just… things were spotty back there, with the way the laws of time and space were twisting around? Maybe nothing caused it."
[16:31] <Minaplo> ["Sounds like the Odyssey." Said a passing technician, who chuckled to himself as he went.-
[16:31] <Minaplo> ["Smartass." Muttered Misato.]
[16:37] * Yanmei shot the man a sharp look, but she was distracted by Roku's choice of words. 'Forgot'… "Why so curious, anyway?"
#0[16:51] <Minaplo> ["My unit is broken." Said Roku, simply.]
[16:57] <Yanmei> "Right. Fair enough, I guess."
[16:58] <Minaplo> [Roku stared at Yanmei for a second, as though tempted to ask something, before she nodded once, turned and began walking away.]#
[14:49] * Yanmei watched her go. There was a vaguely troubled look in her eye… but she shook herself out of it quickly. "A bit tense, isn't she?" she muttered, glancing at Misato.
[15:02] <Minaplo> ["She's been like that, apparently." Said Misato. "Ever since Zeruel retrieved her and Juu and their units…"]
[15:08] <Yanmei> "Did she… want to stay there after all?" Yanmei looked even more troubled now. "The Ayanamis' conditioning should be a thing of the past? But out of all of NERV's bases, that one was the most influenced by Caine. Roku was living there for a long time, so who knows what Caine could have done to her without us knowing…"
[15:16] <Minaplo> ["Who knows? Juu doesn't seem to know much about what Roku got up to, nor do the Twins. I guess it's probably lucky her unit's, er, 'broken'…"]
[15:21] <Yanmei> "Hmm. I guess we just have to add her to the people we should keep a close eye on."
[15:22] <Minaplo> ["Who else is on that list?"]
[15:31] <Yanmei> "All the pilots. Blue. Any prisoners of war, past and present. Fatima Nejem. All personnel affiliated with our Marketing division. All officers above a certain rank. You and Guillory were smooching earlier today, weren't you?"
[15:32] <Minaplo> ["Eh…? That's a tremendous list! And so what if we were?" Muttered Misato. "Does this list watch you, too?"]
[15:33] * Yanmei started snickering.
[15:33] <Minaplo> ["… What?"]
[15:36] <Yanmei> "Completely guessed about the smooching part?" she laughed harder. "H-half the list isn't true!"
[15:37] <Minaplo> [Misato stared at Yanmei for a second, her eyes blank.-
[15:38] <Minaplo> [Then her eyes narrowed dangerously. Misato seemed to grow a few inches, her nostrils widening. She opened her mouth and slowly, deliberately, said two words.-
[15:38] <Minaplo> ["Shirakawa Boulevard."]
[15:42] <Yanmei> Her laughter died suddenly. Yanmei glowered up at her.
[15:43] <Minaplo> [Misato's scary face disappeared, replaced with a sweet, innocent smile.]
[15:46] * Yanmei glared a moment longer. She decided to make a quick grab for some dignity, simply straightening the collar of her shirt and standing up straight. "To answer your earlier question, yes, I am on the watch list too."
[15:48] <Minaplo> ["Good."]
[15:50] <Yanmei> "Hey! What's that supposed to mean?"
[15:51] <Minaplo> ["It would be a shame if something bad were to happen to you." Said Misato, still smiling sweetly.]
[15:55] <Yanmei> "Oh please," Yanmei said primly. "You'd be too busy making kissy faces at Guillory to notice?"
[15:58] <Minaplo> ["S-So what?" Snapped Misato. "I'm not scared of my own sexuality, unlike you!"]
[15:58] <Yanmei> "I'm not scared of anything!"
[15:59] <Minaplo> ["Liar!"]
[15:59] <Yanmei> "I most certainly am -not- a liar!"
[16:00] <Minaplo> ["Here, what do I sound like?" Said Misato. She huffed, folding her arms, tossing her hair. "Alone with my beloved soulmate fiance for six hours, but we didn't even smooch! We were totally professional~" She said, with a high falsetto.]
[16:05] <Yanmei> "You sound like someone who isn't at all me? Maybe Blanc or Asuka."
[16:07] <Minaplo> ["Nope, definitely you. It's the 'totally outrageous lie that no one believes' that does it."]
[16:17] <Yanmei> "They aren't outrageous! And… I don't lie!"
[16:18] <Minaplo> ["Sounds like politics!" Said a passing technician, chuckling as he went. Wait… Was that the same guy from before?]#
[16:29] * Yanmei stared after him long and hard this time, trying to commit his face to memory so that she could get S2 to bully him later. "In -any- case," she tossed her hair, "You should be nicer to me these days. I can't imagine you being this mean to Ikari or Fontaine."#
<Minaplo> ["Yeah, but you're not Ikari or Fontaine? You're sweet widdle Meimei who had to come to Auntie Misato for help and friendship dozens of times~"]
[16:47] <Yanmei> "Teasing is insubordination," grumbled Yanmei.
[16:50] <Minaplo> ["And smooching is fraternisation. Since we're both guilty…"]
[16:52] <Yanmei> "Hmph. I suppose that means a truce of sorts."
[16:55] <Minaplo> ["That's right~"-
[16:55] <Minaplo> ["So you were just here to inspect the Evas?"]
[16:56] <Yanmei> "More or less? It's something to do, anyway…"
[16:56] <Minaplo> ["Feeling nervous?"]
[16:58] <Yanmei> "Restless," she corrected, and frowned up at 04. "If I could just burn off a little steam…"
[17:03] <Minaplo> ["Why -can't- you?"]
[17:05] <Yanmei> "I've tried to find a sparring partner! But everyone's off, I dunno, either resting or not punching things."
[17:06] <Minaplo> ["And Isaiah's nap, so you can't even do some bedroom sparring either, huh? What about your bodyguards?"]
[17:06] <Minaplo> <napping*>
[17:08] <Yanmei> "I won't bother them. They're probably prepping for the upcoming battle?"
[17:12] <Minaplo> ["You can't find, say, Terry?"]
[17:13] <Yanmei> "Eh? Doesn't he need to prep too?"
[17:14] <Minaplo> ["I guess, but he might be done… Hm, hm… And we've evacuated a lot of non-essentials, too…"]
01[03:17] <Yanmei> "Yes. Quite the few little kids crying over having to leave…"
[03:19] <Minaplo> ["You could try sparring with Ezekiel!"]
06[03:20] * Yanmei looked intrigued. "I can ask? But after what happened between him and Go earlier, he might be hesitant."
[03:21] <Minaplo> ["I bet he has some pent-up stress to release too, you know, beneath that calm and placid face of his…"]
01[03:22] <Yanmei> "Hmm. He's like me, then…" Yanmei nodded slowly. "I may as well ask!"
[03:23] <Minaplo> ["That's the spirit." Said Misato, giving Yanmei a thumbs up.-
[03:23] <Minaplo> ["Although…"]
01[03:23] <Yanmei> "Although?"
[03:24] <Minaplo> ["Maybe that's not how he works. Maybe he's a lover, not a fighter?"]
01[03:26] <Yanmei> "Under normal circumstances, maybe, but he's been pissed off at everyone lately. Maybe bringing Sera around when asking him would make him more likely to accept?"
[03:28] <Minaplo> ["As fun as it would be to see Sera take a beating, it's probably not a good idea to deliberately incite Ezekiel, ne?"]
06[03:29] * Yanmei sighed heavily. "No, it isn't."
[03:30] <Minaplo> ["I do know something we could do together…"]
01[03:31] <Yanmei> "Oh yeah?"
[03:39] <Minaplo> ["That new Armin fellow seemed very interested in Go…"]
01[03:40] <Yanmei> "Go on~" a small grin appeared on her face.
[03:40] <Minaplo> ["We could always go and offer her our sage advice? As veterans of the war of love…"]
01[03:41] <Yanmei> "An interesting idea~ Let's go before Isaiah wakes up."
[20:52] <@Minaplo> ["Lead the way, glorious leader~"]
[20:57] <Yanmei> And so Yanmei gloriously turned and led the way back toward the elevators with a light smile on her face. This was going to be so fun~
[21:12] <@Minaplo> [And so they found themselves on the elevator, heading upwards…]
[21:13] <Yanmei> "…I wonder if she remembers any more about that stuff than I do," Yanmei mulled aloud. "The damage, I mean?"
[21:14] <@Minaplo> ["Who, Go?"]
[21:17] <Yanmei> "Yeah. Or any of the others aside from Ezekiel. I -know- he probably remembers…"
[21:17] <@Minaplo> ["What -did- happen in there? What you remember?"]
[21:24] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei glanced away. "It was a world where our thoughts literally took on a life of their own. So if you imagined an object, it would appear before you. Often with sentience."
[21:26] <@Minaplo> ["Uh oh…"]
[21:29] <Yanmei> "Yup. Go dreamed up a sentient potato, actually? But after a while it just sort of… faded into nothingness. Unfortunately, the others were annoyingly long-lived?"
[21:30] <@Minaplo> ["A sentient potato…?"]
[21:31] <Yanmei> "Yup. Or… it was alive, anyway. Kind of pet-like? I don't know how self aware it actually was."
[21:32] <@Minaplo> ["Why…?"]
[21:34] <Yanmei> "Because Blanc warned her not to during the briefing. So of course, she couldn't help but think about potatoes when we were on the mission. I guess she couldn't help it?" Yanmei grinned. "But hey, at least it didn't attack us!"
[21:43] <@Minaplo> ["So something did…?"]
[21:48] <Yanmei> "Um… some things, yeah. Made the mistake of thinking about Joan the Solomon Prime…"
[21:57] <@Minaplo> ["And you fought her?"]
[22:00] <Yanmei> "Yeah. Tried to ignore it at first, under the assumption that giving her more attention would give her more power. That was a mistake. She nearly dislocated 04's arm."
[22:00] <@Minaplo> ["Yeesh! How'd you beat her?"]
[22:02] <Yanmei> "Stabbing. Excalibur worked just fine on her~"
[22:07] <@Minaplo> ["Uh-huh."-
[22:07] <@Minaplo> ["What else did you have to face in there? Maybe… A fire-breathing Mary Caine robot?"]
[22:15] * Yanmei scoffed, tossing her hair. "Certainly not? There was Voriel, though. It tried to eat Blanc. And, um. A baby. And a version of me with six arms and a bow and arrow. And oh my god, Go's dreamboy…"
[22:18] <@Minaplo> ["Huh? Hold on…"]
[22:18] <Yanmei> "Hm?"
[22:19] <@Minaplo> ["A baby?"]
[22:23] * Yanmei almost pouted. Of all the things, she had to focus on that? "A baby. In Lizzie's likeness…"
[22:24] <@Minaplo> ["What did it do?"]
[22:28] <Yanmei> "Cried. And tried to kill 04. But mostly cried. Like it was in pain." She looked guilty. The elevator paused, and the door slipped open. Yanmei hurriedly stepped out. "Eventually it grew a really huge flower on its back, and a six-armed me came out of it. It was weird."
[22:30] <@Minaplo> ["… Huh."-
[22:30] <@Minaplo> ["I wonder if this means you think of yourself as a god…?"]
[22:31] * Yanmei preened. "Doesn't everyone see me as a god?"
[22:32] <@Minaplo> ["I hope not." Muttered Misato. "I don't. Maybe Isaiah does…?"]
[22:33] <Yanmei> "I dunno. He can read my thoughts. Not that I don't have -godlike- thoughts," she added hastily.
[22:35] <@Minaplo> ["I'll ask him about it later~"-
[22:36] <@Minaplo> ["But…" Misato's eyes twinkled. "You mentioned a dreamboy?"]
[22:37] <Yanmei> "Yeah. Go totally dreamed up this Eva-sized guy with perfect abs, flowing hair, and all the sparkles? He didn't attack us, but he did pine for her very loudly."
[22:39] <@Minaplo> [Misato gasped. "Go on…"]
[22:42] <Yanmei> "The first thing he did was to strip off his shirt and beg her not to leave him using this weird old dialect. He showed up around the time we completed the Lance, and it killed him and an…another apparition. Frankly, I think it was kind of a waste?"
[22:43] <@Minaplo> ["That doesn't surprise me." Said Misato with a smirk.-
[22:43] <@Minaplo> ["Oh, another apparition?"]
[22:44] <Yanmei> "Mmph. A version of you might have been there."
[22:44] <@Minaplo> ["-Me-?"]
[22:50] <Yanmei> "It was kind of grabby."
[23:01] <@Minaplo> ["Gra- oh."-
[23:01] <@Minaplo> ["Oh." Misato's eyes widened. "I see! I get it. Dirty little Isaiah's secrets coming to light…"]
[23:06] * Yanmei scowled. "Don't tease him. Or try to make babies with him."
[23:09] <@Minaplo> ["W-Whoa! Where did -that- come from?"]
[23:13] <Yanmei> Some discomfort seemed to swell around Yanmei defensiveness. She turned slightly red. "You can probably guess? I did say it was grabby."
[23:13] <@Minaplo> ["… How grabby?"]
[23:22] <Yanmei> "Just…" She colored even further. "Hey! Speaking of babies, did you know that Ezekiel was born in the same thoughtworld?"
[23:25] <@Minaplo> ["Hold on! T-This was my image that was being abused!" Said Misato fiercely. "What the hell? Why…?"]
[23:31] <Yanmei> "That's just the way that place is?" Yanmei folded her arms. "If your thoughts deviate even slightly, it… makes things out of them, often twisting them. It's not like you would actually make babies with him, right?"
[23:32] <@Minaplo> [Misato gave her a dark look, her brow furrowed harshly. "Of course not! But… Why would you even think that…?"]
[23:36] <Yanmei> "I don't! I'm just making a point that the whole thing was ridiculous?"
[23:37] <@Minaplo> [Misato folded her arms. "Geez. I think I'm actually a little pissed off."]
[23:40] <Yanmei> "Should I have kept it a secret?" Yanmei grumbled.
[23:42] <@Minaplo> [Misato let out a hiss.-
[23:43] <@Minaplo> ["I… Ugh." She turned on her heel, staring at the wall as though strongly tempted to kick it.-
[23:43] <@Minaplo> [She took a deep breath, unfolding her hands, even though they were tightened into fists.-
[23:44] <@Minaplo> [Eventually she turned around. "F-Fine. It's not… Your fault, really." She muttered. "We all think weird things sometimes, right?"]
[23:48] <Yanmei> "Right." Yanmei agreed. "Exactly right?"
[23:50] <@Minaplo> ["Right."-
[23:51] <@Minaplo> ["B-But it made you feel uncomfortable too, didn't it?"]
[23:56] <Yanmei> "Yeah. But, well… that was then." Yanmei tossed her hair. "I'm looking forward to moving on."
[23:57] <@Minaplo> ["Right, but…"-
[23:57] <@Minaplo> [Misato tossed her hair, standing tall, back straight.-
[23:57] <@Minaplo> ["On behalf of myself, Katsuragi Misato, I hereby apologise for the harm caused by the misappropriation of my image!"]
[00:00] * Yanmei gaped at her for a moment. "A-apology accepted?" she managed finally. It wasn't the sort of reaction she had expected from her…
[00:01] <@Minaplo> [Misato nodded seriously, once.-
[00:01] <@Minaplo> ["Now then. Come give your Auntie Misato a big hug." She said, opening her arms wide and beaming.]
[00:17] * Yanmei fidgeted. "That's okay. I'm already getting the message loud and clear?"
[00:18] <@Minaplo> ["No no, come on." Misato made 'come-here' waves with her hands. "That stupid monstrous mind-clone thing made my touch into something you hate and fear. Well, I can't have that, so starting right now, I want you to associate my presence with warmth and affection. C'mere. C'mon."-
[00:18] <@Minaplo> [Beckon, beckon.]
[00:22] * Yanmei sighed, but she moved into the hug regardless.
[00:34] <@Minaplo> [Misato quickly enveloped Yanmei, squeezing the younger girl against her tightly. She let out a warm trill of delight as she did so.-
[00:34] <@Minaplo> ["See~? Isn't this nice~?"]
[00:37] <Yanmei> "I guess so…" Her voice was slightly muffled, but rather grudging too.
03[10:43] * Raphael (~ua.moc.tensutpo.wsn.lsd.721-022-632-022d|leahpaR#ua.moc.tensutpo.wsn.lsd.721-022-632-022d|leahpaR) has joined #nervfrance2
[10:47] <@Minaplo> ["Hehehe."-
[10:48] <@Minaplo> [A hand on the top of Yanmei's head. Sort of stroking or smoothing the top of her head. "You know, you probably don't realise it…"]
01[10:55] <Yanmei> "…huh?" she pulled back slightly, a little baffled.
[10:55] <@Minaplo> ["I have a bit- well, more than a bit- of a soft spot for you, you know."]
01[10:58] <Yanmei> "I guess you wouldn't tease me so much if you didn't."
[10:59] <@Minaplo> ["Of course!"-
[11:07] <@Minaplo> ["But you know… Man, I don't wanna get all mushy. But I've been keeping my eye on you for awhile. I guess, and don't get too squirmy at this, you jerk, but I guess there's parts of you that remind me a little of someone else I used to know…"]
01[11:12] <Yanmei> "Someone amazing, I bet~"
[11:14] <@Minaplo> ["Well, of course. Me!"]
01[11:20] <Yanmei> "Well. Close enough," Yanmei smirked.
[11:23] <@Minaplo> ["Hmph."-
[11:24] <@Minaplo> ["W-Well, anyway." Misato coughed. "I just wanted to say, uh… You know, I'm lookin' out for you and Isaiah-chan, because I think you can do some pretty great stuff sometimes, but… Well, y'know. I know what things can be like."]

01[11:35] <Yanmei> "That's… actually pretty sweet. What brought all of this on, anyway?"
[11:36] <Minaplo> [Misato pulled back, giving Yanmei her space, but not before giving her a quick peck on the top of the head. "Uhh… I'm not sure, really. Maybe it's just the big battle- I'm feeling in a sweet mood?"]
01[11:54] <Yanmei> "Huh!" Clear and open surprise had registered on her face at the little kiss. "J-jeez. It's not like we'll lose to that Metatron or anything, so don't be so worried?"
[11:55] <Minaplo> ["Right!" Said Misato, taking a step back to shove a thumbs-up in Yanmei's face.-
[11:55] <Minaplo> ["You go out there and take care of the big ones, and let big sis Misato take care of the rest!"]
01[11:59] <Yanmei> "Exactly? That was the plan from the beginning!" Yanmei lifted her chin proudly, hands on her hips. "This is my ship, so you guys had better take care of it."
[11:59] <Minaplo> ["It's actually my ship."]
01[12:00] <Yanmei> "It's a Fed ship. That makes it mine~"
[12:01] <Minaplo> ["That's totally not how it works! It belongs to all of us in the Federation, you tyrant."]
01[12:04] <Yanmei> "In that case, you could say it's at least partly mine by virtue of me being part of the Federation~" she pointed out gleefully.
[12:05] <Minaplo> ["Yeah, you get to share it with another billion people. Let me find your one billionth…"]
06[12:15] * Yanmei gave a pouty look and folded her arms. "And there you go with the sarcasm. Angel aside, I believe we were going to team up on teasing a common target, so let's save it for her."
[12:15] <Minaplo> ["Teasing? I thought we were giving her valuable womanly advice?"]
01[12:17] <Yanmei> "Right! That. Advising." she nodded in the most convincing manner. "Now, then. Shall we find her and have at it?"
[12:18] <Minaplo> ["Let's do it."]
