In response to message #5
 
   Whee! Another fun yarn. I admit, I was wondering how exactly they'd learn about their new friend. It was only a matter of time before they got at least a small introduction into the wider world Corwin alluded to in his mis-sent letter to Mio.

I did -not- know they could use Frame Shift on short notice like that, or with Mental Models at all. I'm trying to remember if Frame Shift is even in Arpeggio; I admit it's been a long time.

Yeah, pretty sure that would exceed the Admiral's orders. I mean, he's a laid back kinda superior officer, but shelling the city might stretch that a wee bit. =)

Also, had to Google Rensouhou-chan, but hey, that's what it's for.
