  1. Higanbana moved exceptionally quickly, though its mostly-stock loadout was not enough to elude the Comet Dagger’s custom Saturn Engine. Risu watched as the enemy machine surged forward, deftly coming to a stop just a few short meters in front of her, its Anti-Armor Shotgun aimed directly at her own machine’s chest: she was staring down the smoothbore barrel of the weapon for just an instant before it fired. The diminutive white mobile suit shot upwards just in time, though not fast enough to completely evade the withering fire: the shot had managed to blast the leg of the Higanbana clear off, causing a large, spherical explosion directly in front of the opposing machine. Risu clutched the controls tight, her normal suit creaking against the virtual plastic grips as she pulled back as ordered, sending her mobile suit rushing backwards away from the Archangel and towards friendly lines, towards the Argama. “W-what next..?” she called out, obviously shaken by the experience. It seemed that her earlier display of skill was nothing more than a fluke, or perhaps something else. However, with its main weapon still operational, Higanbana begun to fire, taking shots in the Zeong’s direction. At this distance, the shots would go wide, but perhaps it was enough to get the Mobile Armor off of Shin and allow him to withdraw as well. “S-Shin-san! Go back!” Risu cried, a video window of the girl appearing in the corner of the Astral AGE pilot’s monitor. “Hikaru-san said we’re retreating!”
  2. Streaks of amber light filled Risu's vision, no doubt the enemy returning fire. With widened eyes, and andrenaline coursing through her veins, she scanned her surroundings. Debris dominated her vision after the shots, though in the heat of the moment, she elected to continue shooting instead of changing position, as any experienced pilot should. However, the Higanbana would stop shooting as soon as its pilot spotted a humanoid shape. There was no doubt in her mind that this was the one shooting at her earlier. Her heart begun to pound, and even though the reality that this was just a game was very present in her mind, it did nothing to dull the sense of danger she'd created in her mind. As if by instinct, Risu begun to steer her gunpla towards the Comet Dagger, and for a single, almost-imperceptible moment, the normally-green sensor lights of the Higanbana turned to purple. Higanbana charged forward at full throttle, rushing towards the Archangel at incredible speed. If there was any doubt surrounding the quality of its construction, all of that would be swept away at the sudden burst of movement. Violently, it fired its comprehensive suite of maneuvering thrusters, shoving itself downwards below the Comet Dagger's field of view before resurfacing just a few short meters in front of it. The singular Long Beam Rifle it carried begun to glow with a powerful heat, turning the weapon into an elongated heat sword. The gunpla raised its weapon to strike, at first aiming directly at the Dagger's chest to strike directly at its pilot with a single thrust, but instead used the movement as a feint, surging past the Beta Team machine to instead strike at the Archangel itself up close. Almost immediately, the Earth Alliance vessel's array of point defense turrets raised from their hardpoints, coming alive with unending volleys of machine gun fire towards the Higanbana, which in an uncharacteristic display of skill considering its pilot, weaved between the turrets' arcs of fire with ease and grace as it slashed across various points of the vessel's hull with its Long Heat Claw.
  3. For a long time, Risu seemed to disappear from the battlefield, even staying quiet on team comms. The HUD marker for her machine on the rest of Team Alpha was way out of position, moving seemingly further and further away from the action. What was she doing? Eventually, though, the Higanbana’s marker stopped moving, and an unfamiliar, young voice would transmit through the team comms. “I’m here.” Her comm window finally opened to show the squirrel pilot, who had somehow changed into a more fitting outfit: a close-fitting red-and-black normal suit possessing a pink rabbit pin on the protective collar. “I see it. The ship.” Risu had parked her machine inside a field of debris, having managed to sneak her way over towards the Archangel as ordered. She raised the Higanbana’s sole weapon, its Long Beam Rifle, propping the long, flat weapon against a piece of nearby space debris. Thankfully, the ship wasn’t moving at all, and her heads-up display showed a pair of markers over its bridge and its engine cluster, helping her aim at the critical components of the vessel even if she was wholly unfamiliar with it. A brief pause punctuated the pull of the trigger, and with a low whine, the weapon begun to charge up to let loose a large beam of energy towards the bridge of the ship. If Risu could successfully destroy the bridge, she reasoned, then the fight would be over sooner. She fired again, and again, and again, every shot threatening to slam into the large vessel’s hull and pierce right through. No doubt this would attract the attention of everyone on Beta team, but Risu was fine with that. She'd at least done her job: she'd be lucky to come out unscathed after this.
  4. […] [crimson] says: u sure tho [crimson] says: cuz once u do this nuthins gonna be back to normal again [risuwu] says: yea [risuwu] says: ill do it -- The next phase of this storyline had come far quicker than Risu had anticipated. Unlike her compatriots, she had little thought of actually changing or upgrading her gunpla, reasoning that it was ‘good enough’. She was far too consumed with her chat conversation just minutes before to notice that things were starting; soon enough, she would find herself alone in the Argama’s launch bay. The rest of the team had long since departed the vessel towards the battlefield, leaving the inexperienced Diver to scramble, making her launch rather inelegant. “H-Higanbana, going out…” “So, you all got a plan, or what?” Risu would hear over the radio. It was that aggressive-looking guy, Shin. There was no doubt he’d be going off on his own again, she thought. This time, though, she’d listen. They were to remain at distance… or something. She thought it prudent to hide behind some of the debris in front of them and hopefully try and help her team from there. Risu knew she was no good in a fight, so the best she could do was try and provide cover from afar. The Higanbana’s Long Beam Rifle/Claw seemed to be effective at long range, judging from what her heads-up-display was telling her. If she stayed out of the way, it would be fine.
  5. Risu’s little ears flattened at the touch to her head, appearing to wince away at Hikaru’s touch. Still, she looked like she appreciated it, judging by the small, nervous smile she’d given him. As the proceedings continued, she remained quiet, trying her best to understand what was going on. By the looks of things, this Rau person seemed quite important. And while she didn’t quite get the finer details of his speech, she understood that the next part of this questline was gated for tomorrow. Her attention quickly shifted to her interface as a red circle marked with a ‘1’ appeared above the back of her hand. She’d hold it in front of her to open it, finding a friend request from Marco. She’d leave it for now. As the other divers begun their goodbyes, she’d stand idly in place. She was typing something, and it was taking quite a while. Eventually, she’d bow again, offering her own farewell-for-now. [good night!! see u tomorrow wwww (ノ´ヮ`)ノ*: ・゚] Despite this, she lingered, watching the rest of her new Force disappear with clouds of teal, cubic particles. Now alone, she could finally relax. It felt like she’d been holding her breath the entire time. Slowly, she’d slump to her knees on the cool metal floor, letting out a shaky sigh. This wasn’t normal for her. Usually, she had no problem with people online, where they were static, distant avatars speaking in text, but in the space of virtual reality, it all felt too real. They looked real, quite possibly like their real selves, and they were speaking to her about things she had no understanding of. And now they were counting on her: strangers she barely knew hanging their hopes of success on her meager shoulders. While they’d managed to eke out a victory, Risu could feel it in her heart that she was dragging them down, that they felt that she was dragging them down, holding them back from performing perfectly. Why was she even doing this? She didn’t know Choco in real life, either, but the obligation of meeting her in this game gnawed at her conscience. She wanted to impress her, especially since she’d been given the game, owing nothing in return. For all her hangups and anxiety about all of this, Risu wanted to do better, she wanted to be better for when they would inevitably see each other. She was never good at games, and in virtual reality, where real dexterity was important, she had little chance of keeping up: she was clumsy and unskilled with anything requiring a modicum of finesse or expertise. How would she get better for Choco? Risu paused for a moment, laying back and closing her eyes before she’d log out herself. “Sorry….”
  6. Risu listened quietly, though she'd occasionally fidget with her hands. While the others were talking about their Gunpla, she found herself more occupied with looking at her own. She didn't get an opportunity to look at the machine before, and now that she stood at the foot of it, she couldn't help but admire how it was portrayed. Risu had built Higanbana for Choco, but her friend had refused, instead telling her that she could have it. For a moment, the squirrel reflected on why that was. Maybe Choco had her build it to trick her into playing GBN. While that was fine, she wondered why Choco didn't just ask her if she wanted to play from the start. It was obvious that the Higanbana was an exceptional Gunpla, built using advanced modeling techniques. While ultimately, the machine was stock in its configuration, it was far from a scratch build: the original white-and-navy colour scheme had been replaced with a pearl white and two-tone red satin finish, merging pieces formed from plastic plate to modify the proportions of the already fairy-like mobile suit. The V-Fin had been replaced as well with an intricately detailed golden figurehead, owing to the ornate aesthetic. Just how it was made was something of a mystery. Eventually, she'd turn back towards the group, giving them a small bow as greeting. [my name is risu btw ٩(◕‿◕。)۶] [im new to gbn wwwww]
  7. Risu took a brief pause as she was pulled out of the dark cockpit space of her gunpla and deposited into what appeared to be a large atrium, though the way that various other gunpla were placed in rows against the walls seemed to suggest that this was a hangar, not unlike one for aircraft. She was perhaps too engaged with getting her bearings that she’d effectively tuned out the rather terse conversation happening between the other members of her team, though the way she appeared to actively avoid them would no doubt inform the other divers about what kind of person the little squirrel was, though as soon as her name was called, she’d turn towards the one who’d addressed her. Hikaru, she recalled, though the fact that his name showed up just above his head helped quite a lot. Now that they weren’t engaged in distracting combat, she could dedicate her attention to what he was saying. Unlike previously, he was showing concern. Whether or not he was mad at her, she couldn’t tell, but regardless, Risu felt like she ought to apologize. With a small pout, a white speech bubble appeared overhead, filled with a single word. [sorry :c] [i’ll try harder next time] It’s just a game, Risu thought to herself. There’s no reason you should be getting down like this! Even though she knew better, something nagged at her, or rather had been nagging at her for quite some time. Right now, though, it didn’t matter. She’d try to keep her word as best she could. She wanted to do good, if not for them, for herself, and then maybe Choco as well, whenever she decided to show up.
  8. A long, pregnant pause marked the gap between Risu's thoughts as she stared at the dark-haired boy while he begun to climb the hand of her gunpla. She'd stare for a while, noting just how small he was against her machine. All of this seemed so real, and people enjoyed it? How? Remaining still, she'd look around at her surroundings, watching the combat continue overhead, seemingly without her. Risu wiped her eyes with her sleeves, which were quickly stained with her tears, and eventually, Higanbana begun to move again, rising to its spindle-like feet, clutching Kamille close to its chest. A brief flash of light, and the boy would disappear, only to materialize behind Risu.
  9. For a while, Risu’s hand hovered over the button labeled ‘quit’, staring at the glowing blue shape and the almost alien English text written across it. As far as she knew, she’d already failed. There was no point continuing like this. They were going to lose, and it was all her fault. However, as her hand lowered towards the button to press it, she would look up. The face of a young man met hers but only briefly. His eyes betrayed his stoic face, belonging more to a boy who was time and time again scorned by others, forced to carry the weight of expectation: a burden he simply could not bear. How could a game portray such emotion? She knew those eyes well, and even just that fleeting moment of contact between them, however wordless, was enough. She stirred in her seat upturned, moving her hand away from the button as it disappeared and instead grabbing the pair of control sticks at either side. Finally, Higanbana would move, sitting up slowly as steam billowed from the vents on its narrow chest doubtlessly attracting the attention of anyone who was watching. Its pilot stared at the scene unfolding before her, as the two men traded blows. It was the boy again, with those pain-filled eyes. Risu may not have known who he was, or even what was happening, but something inside whispered to her: help him. The crimson machine lurched forward, reaching out towards the pair as they fought, holding its hand out flat in an effort to separate them like a wall. She had to help him, and she didn't know why. Risu was shaking the entire time, overcome with a feeling of relief that she had not felt in a long time.
  10. She got lucky. That was all. What was next, Risu was not at all prepared for. She panicked, allowing her hands to leave the controls while the blue mobile suit approached with a vengeance, using its spiked shoulder pad as some kind of knuckle weapon. It’d find its mark, striking Higanbana square in its chest, jostling its pilot about and sending the machine careening towards the colony edge. Thankfully, a well-built gunpla translated into a sturdy machine in the game, and Risu would find that Higanbana suffered relatively little collateral damage as it fell into a suburb below, crushing several houses in its wake. Thoroughly shaken, she stared up at the action above, nearly powerless to change it. What was she even doing? What hope did she have of competing against people like this? A familiar, dreadful feeling begun to resurface, like water or blood beginning to fill her lungs. These were strangers, she reasoned. Complete strangers, but why did she feel like she’d disappointed them? In its current state, Higanbana was powerless to do anything, remaining still in the rubble. Its pilot was choking back tears that had no reason to be shed. Why? Why did she let herself think that she could do this?
  11. Even before she could get her bearings, Risu was deposited unceremoniously into the cockpit of her mobile suit. She let out a yelp of surprise as, on its own, the Higanbana was catapulted away from the ramp of the Argama, sending her back into her seat the same way a rollercoaster might when moving quickly along the rail. After a while, however, the inertial pull of her body against the seat would subside as she adjusted to the speed of the TR-6. “...Alpha and Scarlet Teams, this is Hikaru with a SPOTREP. A civilian identified as the son of the Gundam Mk-II's head designer has escaped the Titans' base by charging a security checkpoint with a stolen vehicle in the confusion. He has since abandoned the vehicle. Possibility of defection high, possibility of supplemental intelligence to be obtained on Titans research is moderate. He's the blue-haired boy in the forest close to the combat zone at location 11.5…” The din of a conversation Risu couldn’t possibly understand seemed to dominate the mostly silent soundscape of space, save for the quiet din of a simulated reactor somewhere behind her. She couldn’t see anything in the black, save for the… giant cylinder thing flying towards her to dominate her vision. If that cutscene thing was anything to go on, she was going to follow the blonde guy in the red robot. He seemed important. Slowly, she begun to steer Higanabana towards the Rick Dias, watching as it approached the colony, entering through the main docking port and shooting some kind of glue at a pair of astronauts who didn’t seem to be too cooperative. She’d follow it as it entered the colony, her eyes widening at just how… green everything was inside, but just as she was admiring her new surroundings, a blue robot closed in. [risu] : watch out! Without thinking, she’d pull the trigger on one of her controls, and just as quick, Higanbana’s long beam rifle raised into view, taking a single shot in the Zaku’s direction. It’d miss, but the lance of deadly magenta energy would graze its heat blade, causing considerable damage to the weapon. Risu fired again, the shot veering far off behind the enemy mobile suit, but a third shot would be aimed at the average between the two previous, which happened to be right at the Zaku. She was careless, and those mega particle beams that had missed would strike the colony wall behind it.
  12. Risu wandered around GBN’s hub world rather listlessly, for now content to watch the passersby. She’d admit that she was never good at these sorts of games, and often thought about stopping, but Choco said she was going to be around at some point. Even the tutorial for her was difficult. She’d dreaded going into a mission, or especially going up against other players. Still, she at least wanted to get good enough to keep up. Choco was a pretty skilled gamer, and Risu felt… obligated to try and get to that level, especially since she’d dropped 60 000 yen for this. Her experience with other games had told her the best way to get good at something was to jump in! …right? A quest window opened up in front of her, its suddenness causing her to jump. Given her avatar, which she’d made to be some kind of cartoon squirrel, she’d let out an involuntary squeak. - << Gundam Generation >> A randomized, dynamic and innovative campaign which reimagines events of every timeline and mixes them up with each other for a one-of-a-kind experience! Strike foes down on every known battlefield, oppose NPDs or ally with them, and gain exclusive rewards for passing the unmarked side assignments! Warning: Beta Campaign. Stability and playability errors might arise at random. Report any problems with this campaign to the nearest administrator. - Carefully, Risu read through the quest details, scrolling down until the end, which notified her of its beta status. That… was alarming, but then she’d remembered that GBN was in beta right now. She’d hesitate, having her own reservations about jumping into such content so early, though eventually she’d reach out to press the ‘join’ button. There were already six others who were ready to play. << Gundam Generation >> Looking for Divers… (Maximum 8 players) 1. [8TMS Lt.] Aida 2. [ZAPP Agent] Creed 3. [Comet Meister] Kyle 4.

  14. Full name: Risu Age: Indeterminate, probably a teenager. Sex: Female Height: 5’3” Weight: Not heavy at all Eyes: Black, simple shapes Hair: Same colour as her fur, usually tied up into a ponytail at the back of her head. Skin: Light brown fur, darker brown stripe along her back. Handiness: left-handed Personality Risu is new to GBN, and as such is rather naïve to the nuances of the game. Still, she’s rather curious and often wishes to learn about the way things work. She comes off as rather bubbly, and sometimes somewhat annoying, though she always tries to stay on peoples’ good side. Strengths and weaknesses Risu appears to be a passionate and skilled builder, owing to her previous hobby of building and painting intricate dioramas, and the quality of her gunpla is testament to her skill. However, what she possesses in her ability to create intricate models, she lacks in actually playing GBN. It’s painfully clear that she’s a novice, often fumbling with the controls or flat out not knowing what to do. Appearance Risu uses a kemono-like avatar, appearing as an anthropomorphic squirrel. The diversity of character customization in GBN1.8 allows her to appear more like a character out of Animal Crossing than out of any Gundam series. She’s often seen wearing trendy clothes, and possesses a youthful, excited bounce to her step. Recently, she has given her avatar a makeover, giving it less chibi proportions, pink coloured eyes and hair, and a pilot suit similar to those from Reconguista in G. History While most of her real-life history is unknown, owing to her electing not to tell anyone, Risu claims to have started off building models purely for display, often submitting her intricate dioramas to various modeling contests around the globe. While she never directly reveals exactly what she’s submitted, she often boasts that she’s ‘top 10 in the world’. As a GBN newbie, as well as a newbie to the hobby of Gunpla, Risu is eager to explore what both have to offer. Possessions Risu uses a customized Gunpla based on the Premium Bandai HG Gundam TR-6 Woundwort, which she calls ‘Higanbana’, based on the Japanese name of the red spider lily, which she based the gunpla’s custom colour scheme upon. Risu’s TR-6 Higanbana is exceptionally well-constructed, possessing next to no seam lines, as well as incredibly precise detailing, owing to her experience in modeling. It’s equipped with the standard loadout of the TR-6 Woundwort, primarily its Long Claw Beam Rifle.
  15. Deftly, Teo willed the Gelgoog's arm to catch the Quel's arm by the wrist. Contact-based radio activated, allowing him to hear the enemy pilot. His blood boiled, and quietly he grit his teeth from behind his helmet. "Because I want to prove myself!" he spat. "I want to prove that I'm my own man!" The Gelgoog's thrusters roared to life once more as its leg was brought up to brace against the GM's chest. With all its might, it begun to pull on the newer mobile suit's arm. Slowly but surely, the Gelgoog begun to gore the enemy mobile suit, tearing its arm free from the rest of its body. Electricity arced from the torn wires while oil and coolant begun to flow free from the tubes connecting the Quel's arm like blood from a wound. With its other hand, Teo drove the beam naginata's condensed blade into the machine's shoulder, cutting upwards to slice and tear through the Federation machine's frame. Curiously, however, none of the Gelgoog's strikes were aimed at the vital sections of the Quel. Perhaps its pilot didn't want to kill his enemy.
