Lin S Lovely Brigade

[06:28] <AdEvaGM> [[Session 54: NEON GENESIS EVANGELION. Date: 31st of July, 2017. Episode Title: Lin's Lovely Brigade.-
[06:30] <AdEvaGM> [Marianne was sitting in her command chair, now, facing the rest of the bridge including the pilots. Her hands were clasped together, and she was tapping her thumbs against one another. "Well then. Today we're facing off against the Beijing squad- the only Ayanami-only squad there is."]
[06:30] * Rynol has left #nervfrance
[06:30] * Aline has joined #nervfrance
[06:33] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei kept her eyes on her, a silent question seeming to form beyond the one she asked aloud. "Any recommendations for the battle, Colonel?"
[06:34] * Aline remained silent, anything she would have said being asked by Yanmei. And the way she let her mouth sort of hang open, it kind of showed.
[06:34] * Sept gave a slight nod. "They should all have similar Eva specifications, at least…"
[06:37] <AdEvaGM> [Yanmei nodded. "They should. They're all rather fast, although Chiisana is built for close-range AT Field combat, Juuichi is built for artillery support and Nana- well, she has copied your combat style in many ways, Yanmei." Said Marianne. "Preliminary advice- Aline and Yanmei, if you're going to fight in CQC, stick to Sera and rely on his protection to keep you safe. If we can hold off
[06:37] <AdEvaGM> Nana and Chiisana, we can send someone around to knock out Juuichi. The enemy OD is Major Liu Lin- if I were her, I'd split you all up and take out Aline first, so keep that in mind."]
[06:40] <Yanmei> "Liu…" Yanmei echoed numbly. She searched her face for signs of her joking.
[06:41] <Sept> "I see," Sera said, giving Yanmei a brief glance. "Should we try to neutralise Chiisana's AT Field before she gets to use it?"
[06:42] * Aline thought. "It's probably going to be a doozy of a field, something like mine. Maybe."
[06:45] <AdEvaGM> [Marianne clearly wasn't joking. "We'll see how the situation unfolds. Alright. Let's get outselves synchronised."]
[06:48] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei frowned to herself. "Right. Let's get to it?"
[06:49] <Aline> "Yeah." Aline said, not quite getting Yanmei's tone, but instead getting… to it.
[06:49] <Sept> "Yes. Good luck. Aline, Yanmei." Sera nodded to the two in turn, and headed out.
[06:53] <AdEvaGM> [In the news room…-
[06:54] <AdEvaGM> ["Wwwwwelcome to battle FOUR!" Shouted Julien extravagantly. "This is your host, Julien Lafabre, he imbues things with the capacity to go boom, and next to me is chief boom-creator Raphael Guillory! Who're we seeing throw down in the Thunderdome today, Raphael?"]
[07:06] <Raphael> "…" Raphael's eyes narrow a little at the introduction, but the stumble only lasts a moment. "Today's match will see the first deployment of the Beijing Evangelion squad and their new OD Major Liu Lin, fresh from yesterday's victory against the Berlin-2 unit. However, this round sees them placed against the current top-of-the-table Paris-2 team, who no doubt intend to continue their early
[07:06] <Raphael> victory."
[07:07] <AdEvaGM> ["Without a doubt! I think we can rely on Paris-2 to take this away after they dismantled Leningrad."]
[07:08] <Raphael> "Perhaps. But the Beijing team's victory over Berlin-2 was every bit as crushing."
[07:11] <AdEvaGM> ["Then there's only one thing left- let the deathmatch -begin-!"-
[07:12] <AdEvaGM> [The video switches to the arena, where the Evangelions have finally started to deploy. One side is all identical white and cyclopean; the other is multicoloured. Bright red, violet, green…-
[07:12] <AdEvaGM> ["GOOOOOOOOOOOO!"]
[07:17] * Yanmei wasted no time, darting south as soon as the the signal was given, zooming past her other teammates. "Remember what Marianne said. Watch each others' backs!"
[07:21] <AdEvaGM> [The words were barely out, when…-
[07:21] <AdEvaGM> [A hurling rocket smashed directly into the central Paris formation!]
[07:21] * Aline was on it, though, and 00 tumbled out of the way, rifle in hands as she nimbly dodgerolled!
[07:24] * Sept did the same, inching his way back toward 00 with care. He'd get the chance to retaliate later.
[07:27] <AdEvaGM> ["A violent opening!" Crows Julien happily. "Paris team seems to be a little scattered- can China work on that opening?"]
[07:34] <Raphael> "A little too early too say, although that rocket launcher will keep them from holding any formation for too long. It's likely that's exactly what Beijing is hoping for."
[07:36] <AdEvaGM> ["Paris, of course, lacks any real heavy ordinance and, in fact, lack anyone who can really -wield- it outside of Aline Blanc. Ah~ What's not to love about her? Intelligent, pretty, -and- competent with a full spread of WMDs!"]
[07:40] <Raphael> "I think she may be somewhat too young for you, Mr. Lafabre."
[07:40] <AdEvaGM> ["You, of course, are exactly her age…"]
[07:40] * Sept stopped for a moment, noting the vulnerability of EVA-20. He balanced his rifle on the side of the shield and opened fire. "Aline. Let's move."
[07:41] <AdEvaGM> [The railshots hit home, cracking the ceramic plates covering 20's chest and inflicting wounds against the arms and legs.-
[07:42] <AdEvaGM> ["Guh. Oi oi, Team leader! When are we going to start dispersing?" Asked Juuichi, irritated.-
[07:42] <AdEvaGM> ["Confound you, Juuichi! Await the command!"]
[07:46] * Raphael seems thrown off balance by that one, coughing awkwardly as he looks back towards the monitors… except the one showing Aline's plugs. "Only physically, sir."
[07:46] * Aline smiled at Sera. "In a sec, I've got a shot right here like so…" She focused calmly, the new HarOS system in her plug helping her focus on her aim… then bam! A single, well-placed maser shot towards Juuichi~
[07:50] <AdEvaGM> [The shot vaporised and burned out good chunks of the arm- leaving Juuichi groaning in the plug.-
[07:50] <AdEvaGM> ["Oho! First proper blood! Let's go to one of our on-site commentators, eh, Gilly?"]
[07:54] <AdEvaGM> ["We need to regroup." Said Marianne. "We…" She frowned.-
[07:55] <AdEvaGM> ["Hold on, that formation- wait, if we regroup, she'll… Belay that! Stay as you are!"-
[07:55] <AdEvaGM> [… Yanmei, of course, probably couldn't focus on Marianne anyway, as a white Eva fell from the sky, Prog sword screaming.]
[07:56] * Raphael 's expression suggests he's not too enthused by the idea (Or the nickname, most likely). Yet again the rest of the NERV team have been steadfast in there refusal to tell him precisely who waits on the other end of the two lines the main console provides access to, and previous experience suggests they intend to make it as difficult as possible. He hesitates for a moment before
[07:56] * Raphael selecting the Beijing command centre.-
[07:59] * Yanmei deftly turned it aside with her own weapon, grunting slightly. "Not bad? But if you've got another thing coming if you think that'll stop me."
[07:59] <Sept> "Screw that, we're useless here. We have to catch up with Yanmei. Ready, Aline?"
[08:00] * Aline has quit IRC (Ping timeout)
[08:01] * Rynol has joined #nervfrance
[08:01] <AdEvaGM> ["Hmph." Chiisana turns her Greatsword over, channelling her AT energy into its blade. She raises it above her head…-
[08:02] <AdEvaGM> ["Joyeuse!" She brings it down, and Yanmei's sensors go berserk as a high energy reaction explodes across the battlefield…!_
[08:02] * Rynol has left #nervfrance
[08:02] * Aline has joined #nervfrance
[08:03] <AdEvaGM> [Raphael swaps to the Beijing command's correspondents…-
[08:03] <AdEvaGM> [… And is greeted with the sight of an Asuka staring utter daggers straight into his eyes.-
[08:03] <AdEvaGM> [Next to her, far less furious and in fact, smirking a little, is Alex Fontaine. "Hello, Guillory. Quite the opening, isn't it? Major Liu seems to like her explosions."]
[08:06] <Yanmei> 04, unscathed, crouched just next to the smoking trench left behind in the scenary. "Think one of you can keep EVA-15 off my tail?" She refocused on Juuichi, grip tightening on her prog sword.
[08:07] <Sept> "…now!" EVA-01 brought its shield back to its side and dashed toward Nana's Evangelion, sword raised. "I'll do my best!"
[08:07] <AdEvaGM> ["Ah-!" Juuichi dodged away before Yanmei could get a swing off, tossing aside the too-heavy rocket launcher and pulling out a long mas, which she fired point blank at her opponent. "Who's this fool who thinks she can take me on simply because she has a sword…?!"-
[08:09] <AdEvaGM> [Nana turned, brow creasing. She focused- and as Sera came close, nimbly cut through his sword with her own glowing Heat Sword. "Heh. Nice try, though?" She tossed her hair exulantly.]
[08:11] <Yanmei> 04 skipped aside, just in the nick of time. "Hmph. You snipers…" Yanmei tossed her own hair. "In case you didn't know? It's pretty foolish to underestimate swords."
[08:12] <Aline> "Foolish fools who are fools~" Aline teasingly commented, as 00 flew across the battlfield to reunite with Sera, pumping off a shot towards Chiisana during her landing.
[08:12] <Raphael> … Well, he was prepared for quite a lot of things, but that was not one of them. It was somewhat like rounding a corner and finding yourself face to face with a live tiger. "Ah."-
[08:12] <Raphael> "… Yes, she seems to favour the shock and awe tactics." He says, giving Julien a sidelong glance. "Good afternoon, you two."
[08:13] <AdEvaGM> ["What are you, stupid?!" Snapped Asuka, face swelling with rage. "Who did you think you are?! Did you even -watch- the mfmfmfmf?"-
[08:13] <AdEvaGM> [Alex smoothly placed a hand gently over Asuka's mouth. "It seems to be going, all things considered, rather well. Although the 'Tiger of Jinan' is still finding it hard to pin the Parisians down. They're like snakes."]
[08:17] <Sept> "You can't count on that. That's not something you can do twice." Sera kept at the ready with knife in hand, looking for another opening.
[08:19] <AdEvaGM> ["We'll see?" Said Nana, smirking as she hurled away towards Yanmei, sword raised.]
[08:20] <Sept> …but not before Sera could step in, gouging the arm of EVA-15 before pursuing her.
[08:21] <Raphael> "Quite." Raphael says, quickly finding his balance again. He's focusing his attention on Alex. "Although it seems her work may be done for her if the combat continues to descend into one large melee."
[08:21] <AdEvaGM> ["Ngh." Nana shook her head, trying to shake off the painful aftermath- swinging her sword down on Yanmei.-
[08:22] <AdEvaGM> ["Quite right." Says Alex, quickly proving himself to be a professional speaker despite having to wrestle a furious Asuka- he now has her in an armlock and his composure remains unbroken. "All things considered, though, the Paris team are known to be highly competent in CQC…"]
[08:26] <Yanmei> 04 slipped aside this time, its pilot scowling. "Well, aren't you persistent?"
[08:27] <Raphael> "Mmm, Pilot de Pteres and Pilot Zhang will prove a difficult combination in that scenario, although Pilot Chiisana remains something of a wild card as of this moment. Do you think she could be enough to disrupt the Parisians?"
[08:30] <AdEvaGM> [There was the sound of Chiisana roaring- 'Joyeuse!'- in the background followed by a massive explosion.-
[08:30] <AdEvaGM> ["It's a possibility of some likelihood, yes."]
[08:32] <Raphael> "Your insight is as astounding as ever, Mr. Fontaine."
[08:32] <AdEvaGM> ["One of my many talents-"-
[08:32] <AdEvaGM> ["LET ME GO, JERKFACE-!"]
[08:32] <Raphael> "Clearly."
[08:34] * Zack is now known as ZackSleep
[08:34] <AdEvaGM> [The camera cuts away.-
[08:34] <AdEvaGM> ["Wow. Now there's a young lady with a bit of fire in her belly! And might I add, she's rather… Hot elsewhere, too."]
[08:36] <Raphael> "… Honestly, Mr. Lafabre, this is becoming somewhat unsettling."
[08:37] <AdEvaGM> ["I'm being paid to do it."]
[08:37] <Raphael> "That is a good deal more unsettling."
[08:38] <AdEvaGM> ["A part of me cries a little inside every time I mention it." Says Julien, grinning maniacally.]
[08:38] <Raphael> "…"-
[08:38] <Raphael> "Mmm."
[08:43] <Yanmei> Yanmei's prog sword whirled to life as she stood up from the blast, gasping, but not out. She slammed it into Juuichi with all of her strength, several times.
[08:45] <AdEvaGM> ["Guh- Agh- Agh!" Juuichi staggered backward, now missing an arm and a kneecap. Awkwardly she floated away on her AT field. "That's- not happening! We're going to blow these bastards up, I don't -care- what you do! I can't let that rotten Hachi beat me…"-
[08:46] <AdEvaGM> [A neutralisation field extended, sapping Aline's strength.]
[08:50] <Raphael> Back at the commentary desk, Raphael seems equal parts surprised and amused to hear one of Rei's sisters talking like that. They certainly had begun to become their own people…
[08:51] <AdEvaGM> ["It looks like Paris is getting the upper hand…"]
[08:51] * Aline grumbled, pumping another shot with her rifle… but it just couldn't compare to Juuichi's ability to dodge.
[08:52] <AdEvaGM> ["Hah. I'll show you how to use a Long Mas…"]
[08:54] <Yanmei> …something was wrong in 04. It staggered, muscles spasming, Yanmei open-mouthed. "The… -ck…?"
[08:55] <AdEvaGM> ["Electrified armour- be careful when using melee attacks!" Shouted Marianne. "Fred, try to get her back online."]
[08:55] * Sept kept himself between Nana and the other Parisians, shield raised and pacing back and forth ever so slightly, a wall of silence. "You're running out of time. Aline and Yanmei will get your sisters if you don't get through me."
[09:11] <AdEvaGM> ["Heh. You can't fool me that easily?" She lashed out, Heat sword and Prog sword blazing. "They won't go for my sisters- one on one, you're no match for Nanamei Ayanami."-
[09:11] <AdEvaGM> ["JOYEUSE!" Another explosion ripped through the air.-
[09:11] <AdEvaGM> ["That Chiisana girl is providing quite the soundtrack to this battle." Said Julien.]
[09:19] <Raphael> "She's certainly giving them something to think about, yes."
[09:19] <AdEvaGM> ["But with the Parisian team lumping up to take on Nana, it looks like they might need more than Joyeuse to win this…"-
[09:19] <AdEvaGM> [Raphael's console began to beep as the Paris commentators wished for airtime.]
[09:22] * Yanmei was finally catching her breath as the light cleared again. Hastily, she unloaded some Bolter shells in Nana's direction, pretending that she hadn't heard that last remark from her at all.
[09:23] <AdEvaGM> [Nana slid smoothly to one side. "Heh. You're doing pretty well, Meimei-sama~? But that won't work…"]
[09:26] * Raphael eyes the little blip for a second or two before jabbing the button that would accept it. This time he would be ready even in the unlikely event of Asuka’s return…-
[09:26] <Raphael> "It would seem we have word from our correspondents in Paris-2’s control centre. Let’s see what they have to say."
[09:27] <AdEvaGM> [The commentators that greeted him would probably not be the people he'd expect. There was Mana- still in her new attractive outfit, now sporting tight black silk socks that rose to her thighs. Next to her, sitting in a heavily fortified battlechair, was Suzanne.-
[09:27] <AdEvaGM> ["Hiya, Captain~" Cooed Mana.-
[09:27] <AdEvaGM> ["Heya, Raffy!" Shouts Suzanne, waving energetically.]
[09:28] <AdEvaGM> [Juuichi wanted to make sure the shot hit. A little more Neutralization, and…-
[09:28] <AdEvaGM> [A sizzling Mas bolt struck into EVA-00's head, hitting -hard- and ripping several optics into nothing.]
[09:39] * Aline cried out in slight pain, and in a perhaps risky, silly move… rushed straight for Nana with a furious roar, and tore into her side with… a ferocious bite!
[09:43] <Raphael> That… was not a tiger. There was a blink, and a stare and a very pronounced gulp before he had much of a chance to stop it. He quickly shifted his gaze to Suzanne, who, in any other situation, would have been the first thing he noticed. "A-ah… Suzie, why are you…" He coughed, bit down on his form's reactions and steadied himself. "Miss Sartre. How are things in the Parisian Command
[09:43] <Raphael> Centre?'
[09:57] <AdEvaGM> ["Really exciting!" She shouts, clearly in a sort of adrenaline-fuelled hyper mode. "There's explosions from Chiisana and Yanmei's going swish-swish and Sera is trying -really hard- but Pilot Nana is giving him a lot of trouble! He's like, slash! And she's like-"-
[09:57] <AdEvaGM> ["Hyah!" Nana swipes at Aline, unleashing a dance of blades…]
[10:00] <Raphael> "Indeed." Raphael says seriously, apparently having settling on Suzie as his best chance for a coherent interview and determined to make the best of it. "And how would you say that Yanmei is doing as team leader, ma'am? Swish-swish aside, of course."
[10:01] * Sept pushes in, shield first, knife not far behind, turning some of the blows away and lashing out at Nana.
[10:01] <AdEvaGM> ["She keeps running into -all- the enemies." Says Suzie, slamming her hand against the armrest of her chair and unintentionally deploying a heavy machine gun. "She is really brave! A total samurai pilot."-
[10:02] <Raphael> «having settled*»
[10:02] * Aline for her part whined a bit. "Uggggh."
[10:03] <AdEvaGM> [Nana's blows mostly go awry, turning lethal death for Aline into a blunted edge… But not without claiming Sera's knife. "Huh. Guess I could count on that-"-
[10:03] <AdEvaGM> ["JOYEUSE!"-
[10:04] <AdEvaGM> ["Gah! Chiichin, not so close!" Nana dances away from the explosion.]
[10:06] <Yanmei> "For god's sake!" Yanmei hissed, as her AT Field rippled to life under the blast. "They'll pick us off this way if we're not careful. Heading north to take the pressure off. You guys clean up here?"
[10:07] <Raphael> "… Miss Sartre, please be careful with that chair."
[10:10] <AdEvaGM> ["Eh? So Yanmei's come to dance with a real master?" Juuichi dances away from 04 and throws out a neutfield. "Take her, Chii!"-
[10:10] <AdEvaGM> ["Don't worry, Raffy." Says Suzie. "It's not loaded."-
[10:10] <Sept> "False," Sera said, letting loose a hail of projectiles on EVA-15.
[10:12] <AdEvaGM> [Mana beams and kneels down next to Suzie. "They seem to be losing cohesion a little due to Chiisana's attacks- oh! It looks like 01 has just hit Nana Ayanami hard~"-
[10:12] <AdEvaGM> [Nana groaned in her plug, shaking her head and suppressing a shiver of agony. "Ah-agh… I can't… Let you get away with that…"]
[10:14] * Aline focused, and… tried to fire another withering shot at Nana's EVA's head…!
[10:16] <AdEvaGM> [… Only to be blocked by a shimmering AT Field. A second later, Nana was off, crashing down upon Yanmei with a swirling prog sword. "Grr-rr!"]
[10:18] * Yanmei caught it with her own sword, sparks flying as the prog parts ground at each other. "What's wrong? You look a little rattled?" She pushed Nana's weapon aside, and then made a sharp strike of her own.
[10:19] <AdEvaGM> ["Heh. Not as much as you, Meimei-sama? You should be faster, you know~"]
[10:23] <Raphael> "I… erm, yes." Raphael says, no longer quite sure where to look but unable to stop giving everywhere a try. He’s managed to last the entire battle up until now without a blush, but now that record crashes like the Hindenburg.-
[10:24] <Raphael> "Julien do you… do you have anything to ass?" … "ASK. Anything to ask!"
[10:25] <AdEvaGM> ["I don't know. You seem to be doing so -well- at it."]
[10:25] * Raphael covers his face.
[10:26] <AdEvaGM> [Julien mercifully changes the camera as Mana's blushing giggles haunt Raphael's memories. "And back to the battle, before Raphael Guillory can continue to seduce underage girls."-
[10:28] <AdEvaGM> [Upon the battlefield, Chiisana charges at Raphael, Joyeuse swinging above her head before it crashes down toward Yanmei. "I challenge you to honourable battle, Zhang Yanmei!"]
[10:35] <Yanmei> "Respectfully declined?" Yanmei bounded away, letting Chiisana's weapon crash into the ground where she'd been standing a moment before. Instead, she was lashing at the already-injured Juuichi!
[10:39] <AdEvaGM> ["Agh!" Juuichi let out a cry of pain, and was already breathing heavily, chest heaving. "I… I won't let…"]
[10:42] * Aline fired again, but, despite her focused aim, was still missing!
[10:49] <AdEvaGM> [Which allowed the Ayanamis to execute their trap.-
[10:49] <AdEvaGM> [Nana charged first, followed by Chiisana- wincing at the interference tracing through her plug- and finally, Juuichi lunged with a curious four-bladed Prog knife…]
[11:02] <Yanmei> Yanmei fought back! She dodged Nana and Chiisana, and was readying for a strike at Juuichi… but was far too slow for that one, and knife she'd brought out stabbed deep into Yanmei's arm. Yanmei choked back a strangled yell, and then desperately flourished her sword at Chiisana, aiming for her lower half with all of her strikes…
[11:02] <AdEvaGM> [… And her reward was a blood-curdling scream from Chiisana as the Evangelion torso collapsed, bloody and messy, into the ground, blood pouring across the area.]
[11:09] <AdEvaGM> ["And it looks like Paris-2 is about to put the finishing touches on this battle." Said Julien.]
[11:10] <Sept> And it wouldn't stay there on the ground for long, as what was left of EVA-14 was soon riddled with holes through several vital organs. Nothing could survive without all that blood.
[11:14] <AdEvaGM> [Seconds later, Chii's cries were cut short as her feedback suppressants kicked in and her synch ended. She slithered from the plug, collapsing into a heap on the ground.]
[11:38] <Yanmei> "Well done you guys! Gah-!" Startled by the sudden appearence of Nanmei's new weapons, Yanmei tried to dodge a burst of maser fire from her, but came up short, stumbling and taking some minor damage. -
[11:40] <Yanmei> And then returned fire with her own bolter, although there much fewer shots to go around. There were some very impressive explosions, however…
[11:40] <AdEvaGM> [Juuichi's cries of pain were audible to all- before they cut out.-
[11:41] <AdEvaGM> ["Odd, EVA-20 hasn't taken enough damage for it to be defeated…" Murmured Julien. "… Ah. We've just received word that Pilot Juuichi passed out from the agony."]
[11:41] <Yanmei> "…"
[11:47] <Sept> "Good work, Yanmei. Let's finish this." A blow hit the plating on EVA-15's head with enough force to give it pause, and make an opening for the others.
[11:47] * Aline focused one last time, but… thanks to Sera's earlier shot, she could capitalize on the opening. Reticules narrowed. Her eyes matched… then a single shot, to end it all.
[11:49] <AdEvaGM> [The shot vaporised the head, a torso falling to the ground…-
[11:51] <AdEvaGM> ["And… Paris-2 has won!"]
