#0, (teaser) The Upcoming Thing
Posted by Gryphon on Jul-27-15 at 08:23 PM
It doesn't have a final title yet, but there's enough of it now for a teaser!


Wednesday, July 7, 2410
21° 12' N, 158° 7' W
Pacific Ocean, Earth

Corwin Ravenhair stopped the Zodiac when his omni-tool told him they had reached the correct coordinates, then listened carefully as the swish of the inflatable through the water died away to silence. He heard nothing, felt nothing other than the gentle swell of the ocean. They were far enough from land now that surf wasn't an issue, though in some part of his mind, he couldn't shake the impression that he could still feel it, looming behind them.

Turning to the other person in the boat, he asked, "Anything?"

Iona sat quietly for a moment, as if she, too, were listening for something; then she shook her head and replied, "I'm not detecting anything, but my scan range is limited," she added, a very faintly apologetic tone creeping into her voice.

"Mm," Corwin not-really-replied. He looked around, saw nothing but the near-flat grey of a just-predawn sea, and then said, "Well... it wouldn't be my first choice of time or place to do something as obvious as this is probably going to be, but..." Then, shrugging, he rose to his feet and went on, "Let's get to it, shall we?"

Iona stood as well, effortlessly balancing in the faintly rolling craft, and stood facing him, her face perfectly composed. Corwin gazed thoughtfully down at her for a few moments (he had little choice in the matter, given that he stood more than a head taller), then closed his eyes and raised his left hand, touching a fingertip to the silver cuff earring he wore.

The runic engraving on that earring glowed at his touch, dimly at first, then more brightly. The brand on his forehead glowed with it, and as the light brightened, its shape changed, the simple circle with a dot in the center becoming two concentric rings, linked and slightly overspread by three equidistant lines, a bit like a gunsight. He wasn't breaking the seal that kept most of his divine power in check for Midgard's sake; rather, he was dialing it momentarily back, so as to access more of that power for this one specific purpose.

Placing his hands on Iona's slim shoulders, he opened his eyes, looked straight into hers, and began to speak - his voice low, but charged with that fresh infusion of power:

Fallen warrior who sleeps in this place,
Cut down in defeat by an ungracious victor,
Hear me.

Off to the east, the dawn broke, the first diamond arc of the sun springing into sight and spreading its orange rays across the surface of the sea. As the light fell across their faces, Corwin smiled slightly and went on, his voice gaining strength in time with the brightening of the sky.

Wake from thy dreamless slumber.
Wrest thyself from the slime of the depths
And the depth of the ages.
Drag thyself from the cold and the dark
And taste again of warm air and sunlight.

I am Corwin of the Raven-Hair,
Watcher o'er the World-Engine,
Lord of Great Machines,
Chooser of the Slain.
By my Will and by my Power,
I bid thee rise!

As he spoke the last word, a brief but brilliant shaft of white light burst from the expanded brand on his forehead and into the sky, like lightning in reverse, and its thunder crackled across the empty sea. Fizzing slightly with a discharge of excess energy, the brand fell back to its normal configuration, its glow and that of his earring going out... and for a moment, that seemed to be all that was happening. Looking faintly puzzled, Iona gave him an inquisitive tilt of her head.

Corwin smiled slightly and released her shoulders, wiping a light sweat from his brow with one forearm. "Wait for it," he said, resuming his seat and gesturing for her to do the same. "It's a long way down from here..."

As she sat down, Iona was about to ask what was a long way down when, a few dozen yards off the Zodiac's port bow, the sea began suddenly to boil. Or at least that's what it looked like - the surface upheaving and sliding away, as when the hot bottom mass of water begins convecting to the surface just before the onset of a good rolling boil. No bubbles, but a massive disturbance all the same as if something enormous were forcing its way up through the sea...

... until, in a tremendous geyser of spray, a vast grey-and-red shape lunged up through the surface, like a freight train roaring out of a tunnel, but at a near-vertical upward angle. It climbed inexorably higher until it towered like a strangely angled office building. Gleaming and wet, it hung suspended for a long, impossible-seeming moment, then crashed mightily down to the horizontal, hurling out a wave that made the Zodiac buck like an airplane in a storm.

Iona's sea-green eyes, never particularly narrow, now went even wider than usual as she recognized the massive object, its lines as familiar to her as those of her own face. Probably more so, since long before Iona existed as the petite silver-haired young woman now unconsciously rising back to her feet in the still-rocking Zodiac, the shape she was now looking at had been her own: a submarine, vast but sleek, her upper deck dominated by a great cylindrical structure (itself the size of some smaller subs) and an off-center conning tower. On the sides of that conning tower were painted her only markings:

イ401

Despite the centuries she had spent on the bottom of the ocean, the vessel looked brand new, as if she had just sailed out of the finishing docks at Kure.

"I-401," Iona murmured, her voice almost inaudible under the sound of the water cascading from the risen submarine's flanks. Then she looked up as if hearing an unexpected sound, blinking into the sky, before turning to Corwin and saying in a louder voice, "Tachyon sweep. Standard Earthforce search sensor. We've been detected."

Corwin sighed. "Yep, knew that was comin'," he said. "All right, let's get aboard and start phase two. We don't have much time before they're doing more than just scanning."

That is...definitely a way to attract the attention of Earthdome, if ever I've seen one. Although, in fairness to him, Corwin has certainly made something of a habit of doing that. The sub-lunar space-fold and subsequent running of the defense net; Big O's destruction of the Earthforce destroid drop team; now this.

Gonna be interesting to see this one play out, yes indeed.

Well, he did say he wouldn't have picked that exact spot if he'd had a choice, but hey - that's where they sank her...

... 13½ nautical miles from Pearl Harbor.

Given all that, if he just got on the comm and said "hi, it's me, just picking up somebody's luggage for her," would they be more likely to try attacking, or less?

Pff. They'll attack no matter what Corwin says, and as much as Earthdome is a bunch of right nitwits (to quote Rowan Atkinson), I'd wonder what the hell is going on too if something like that happened 13 knots off a major military base. Of course, the right nitwits will shoot first and ask questions later, which is why they're the bad guys. =)

That all said, I know I haven't responded to every thread around here (and I won't unless I have something at least marginally intelligent to say), but OWAW has gotten me to start watching Strike Witches again, and now, heavens help me, I've been looking up KanColle characters. The stories here have been fantastic; I like them 100 times better than the original material. =)

I'm just half afraid I'll show up to work in a dress shirt and panties one day.

>Pff. They'll attack no matter what Corwin says

Well, in fairness(?), quite apart from the disturbance he just caused within a few miles of a major military base, Corwin is still wanted in the Earth Alliance in connection with aforementioned previous Valiant exploits. So if he called them up and announced his presence, yeah, they would be inclined to go after him regardless. It would be the equivalent of going on their in-game chat channel and typing COME AT ME BRO.* :)

n.b. "knot" is a unit of speed. "Nautical mile" is the associated unit of distance (one knot is one nautical mile per hour). The phonetic similarity is a coincidence; "knot" originates from a method of measuring the speed of a sailing ship that involved a literal rope with literal knots in it. :)

I'm flattered, though personally I think the original Strike Witches gets a bit of an unfair kicking in that comparison, apart from its treatment of Mio. :)

Heh - that's actually one of the running jokes of the Strike Witches metacanon. In-story, when discussing what are obviously panties, they almost always use the word for "trousers" (zubon) instead. The implication is that it's a bit of official nomenclature, a bit of rules lawyering by the armed forces so that witches aren't constantly getting dinged for out-of-uniform. It's even lampshaded sometimes in secondary materials as a psychological dodge the witches themselves use to make themselves comfortable with the arrangement (which is where the general fandom tagline, often used and repurposed in various parodical contexts, comes from: "they're not panties, so it's not embarrassing.")

Heh. At this point if I were an Earthforce commander I'd be getting suspicious. 'What is Corwin distracting us from?'

I haven't seen more than, like, the first episode of KanColle. The initial intro you already referred to (Hi, this is the set of assumptions we're making about the universe, and screw the reasons why) rather made me cringe dramatically.

Aaaaaah, see, I didn't know this. Learn something new every day. I thought it was being allowed because the witches -wanted- it, ie. it was sort of an ultimatum on the first fighting witches' part, a 'do it our way or keep losing cities, since we're throwing our lives away for you'. This actually puts Yoshika in context, come to think of it. Every uniform we see is either panties or tights, but doesn't she wear a school uniform swimming outfit?

The KanColle anime requires a certain amount of just not giving a shit about the details. For that matter, the game itself does as well, but it gets around it more gracefully by just ignoring them. The game, because of the way it's configured, can get away with just leaving the great bulk of what the hell is actually going on mostly to the player's imagination. This, and Kadokawa's freeform approach to supplementary media generally (they've officially acknowledged a number of different dōjinshi with completely different takes on how anything actually works), has led to a situation where there really kind of isn't a canon beyond what little is in the game itself. Which is sort of irritating and handy at the same time for the likes of me. :)

I think there's an element of that, but it seems to be partly practicality (it's hard to operate a Striker Unit with trousers on, though Adolfine Galland manages it) and partly cultural (in a couple of instances, non-military witches and retired combat witches are shown in similar states of {un}dress). It's never explained in any detail, but from context it seems like it's just a witch thing. Nobody remarks upon it on the infrequent occasions when the witches are out and about among civilians (for instance, in the episode where Lucchini, Yoshika, and Shirley go shopping in Rome).

>This actually puts Yoshika in context, come to think of it.

That's the way the Imperial Fusō Navy rolls; Mio's uniform similarly teams a naval officer's jacket with an old-fashioned school swimsuit, as does Junko Takei's when she has her cameo early in season 2. Yoshika's has the sailor blouse instead because she's not an officer (which is why in OWaW, where she is an officer, she dresses like Mio instead).

(In the first episode of season 1, before Yoshika joins the Navy, they show her entire class in junior high dressed the same as she is, but I suspect that was just the animators being lazy.)

Speaking of the Fusō forces, some witches do wear (very short) skirts; Imperial Fusō Army witches like Tomoko Anabuki, of whom Yoshika owns a costume doll, wear a sort of abbreviated miko outfit similar to that sported by the Kongō class in KanColle, with a hakama-themed miniskirt.

I've been going on the assumption that the earliest known witches had to cast a lot of magic in a hurry before they'd finished dressing, and then had to spend so long convincing everybody who saw that no, being sans-trousers was a perfectly normal witch thing to do that it stuck.

That, or the rise of magic was reliant on the lack of the invention of shorts.

Indeed! Of course, I'm the kind of person that needs a little more explanation than that, I admit. I -can- watch it but it goes against my grain to turn my brain off, I suppose. I'm spoiled that way. =)

Hm. Well, making it a cultural norm makes it a good deal more palatable to me, I think. Kind of interesting introspection on my part. Huh.

I -adore- that outfit. Wonder if the miko in Fuso wear that all the time.

I assume we'll see in the next installment what exactly Earth forces (not to say Earthforce, not sure they were around then) did to i401. Because in all honesty, they weren't winning much of anything against the Fleet of Fog IIRC. I wonder what would count as ungracious when the victors basically thought they were fighting for the survival of their planet. That would have to be pretty damn ungraceful.

Definitely looking forward to finding out. =)

I think it may be a reference to the fact that I-401, after having been surrendered to the US Navy at the end of World War 2, was sunk as a target. This was apparently done to keep from having to share its technology with the Soviets per a wartime agreement.

Yeah, if you have "make signature editable in each post" turned off in your preferences, it's automatically "baked into" each post, and the Forum doesn't bother to re-do them if you change your master .sig later. Don't worry about it.

Apart from their shared Japanese origins (and this is by no means the only other Japanese song ever used in a Goldfish Warning, I'm sure), I'm... not seeing the similarity.
